Qu'est-ce que l'homme ?<br />L'homme est un être moral, intelligent et perfectible.<br />Qu'est-ce qu'un être moral ?<br />C'est celui qui aime et qui pratique la justice.<br />Comment l'homme distingue-t-il ce qui est juste de ce qui ne l'est pas ?<br />Par le témoignage infaillible de la conscience, c'est-à-dire en s'affirmant soi-même, car la nature propre de <br />l'homme est de tendre au bien et de fuir le mal.<br />Qu'est-ce que le bien ?<br />Le bien est ce qui est conforme à la nature de l'homme, et le mal ce qui lui est contraire.

El Estado federal Mexicano tiene entre sus características ontológicas el sostener la autonomía de las Entidades Federativas que le componen. La forma en que estas entidades plasman esta autonomía es a través de la conformación de un marco legal independiente que toma forma en las Constituciones Estatales.<br /><br />El estado de Chiapas se ha caracterizado por buscar denodadamente la edificación de una Carta que sea una representación flexible de la forma en que las necesidades de los chiapanecos se han ido organizando a lo largo del tiempo. La presente edición es la versión más actualizada disponible, la trigésimo tercera, de acuerdo a las reformas decretadas el 29 de diciembre de 2016.<br /><br />En ella se busca perfilar la constitución garantizando entre otras cosas: la dignidad humana, el reconocimiento y la protección de la propiedad humana, la libre manifestación de las ideas, una política en contra de la violencia de género, el derecho a la cultura, el respeto a la voluntad anticipada, los derechos de los migrantes, etc. <br /><br />Además, ParaCELSO ha buscado editarla en un formato accesible, de fácil lectura, para que lectores de todas las edades puedan conocer esta Carta, al tiempo que estudiantes de diferentes niveles la convierten en un cuaderno de trabajo, pero no excluyendo con ello a los profesionales del derecho, que podrán contar con un atractivo diseño para el desempeño de sus funciones.

<p><em>Defining Crimes</em>, by the distinguished author team of William J. Stuntz (late of Harvard) and Joseph L. Hoffmann (Indiana), breaks from the tradition of Model Penal Code-centric casebooks and focuses instead on the rich intellectual and theoretical issues that arise from how crimes actually get defined and applied today by state and federal legislatures, trial and appellate courts, police, prosecutors, defense lawyers, and juries. The innovative approach of Defining Crimes enables the in-depth study of the problems and issues that affect the day-to-day contemporary practice of criminal law.</p>

It is easy to overlook the importance of contract management because it seems to be a boring, mundane topic. Contracts, however, are the basis of most business relationships. If contracts are managed well, business relationship will flourish. If they are not, companies face financial loss, relationship harm, and damaged reputations. <br />Every business relationship relies on contracts. Contracts are made with vendors, employees, customers, partnerships, etc. These agreements must be managed carefully, which is where contract management comes into the picture. In order to effectively implement contract management, however, it is necessary to understand what it entails.

In the United States today, regardless of the person holding Presidency, at any given time roughly half of Americans resent being governed from Washington, DC. The aftermath of the 2016 election has only worsened this divide, with Californians starting secession movements and Americans across the political spectrum fearing radical change to the United States, for better or worse.<br />Ungovernable shows that it was never realistic to believe a nation of 324 million diverse people could be effectively governed from a central authority in Washington DC. So how do we prevent diverging parts of the United States from going their separate ways while providing a government structure that pleases most Americans?<br />This book explores the factors that make the United States ungovernable and identifies ongoing federal government failure. Ungovernable provides a framework for improved government in the United States by considering:<br />- A realistic assessment of the current demographics and policy failures <br />- The bizarre conflicts between levels of government in the US<br />- What Canada can teach Americans about division of federal and local power <br />- How successful government models of peer nations can be applied in the US<br />- The critical need to make changes soon, or face revolt

Carlos A. Ball argues that as progressives fight the First Amendment claims of religious conservatives and other LGBT opponents, they should take care not to forget the crucial role the First Amendment played in the early decades of the movement, and not to erode the safeguards of liberty that allowed LGBT rights to exist in the first place.
