...Notes on the British Acts People came to America seeking religious independence and economic success. Instead, British rule prevented them from experiencing freedom in taxation, land ownership, and government. Without consideration of the colonists, the British established several "Acts" of taxation. Proclamation of 1763: It closed the frontier of colonial expansion and the colonists thought that all they have been working for was going to be for nothing. The Quartering Act: Ordered the local government to give housing to and provisions for the British soldiers. Sugar Act Act to raise fund on sugar and wine. Stamp Act: A tax on every piece of printed paper like news paper and legal documents. Though the tax wasn’t big they thought it was rude to tax them on paper and unfair. They thought it would lead to bigger taxes. The Intolerable Acts: The Intolerable Acts was a name used to describe a series of act passed by the British Parliament . These acts caused outrage in the 13 colonies which lead to resistance. The quartering act, the sugar act, and the stamp act where all intolerable acts. These where the acts that lead to the revolutionary war. There were many years when the Colonists were ignored by Britain. The colonists became accustomed to the laws they created themselves. When the British discovered the colonists did not obey their laws and instead were governing themselves, they tried to enforce the old laws. By the late......

Patriot Act, Alien Act

...The USA Patriot Act, the Alien and Sedition Acts, and the Bill of Rights were all established by the government to protect the citizens of the United States of America. These forms of legislation were predominantly written with intentions of enhanced security but could also be construed as allotting more power to the government to generate decisions without the consent of the citizens. The USA Patriot Act is the most recent of the three forms of legislation, but its objective is probably more understood by citizens during a time of terrorism and constant states of “High Alert” issued by the government. The Act affects everyone in the country, and since it gives the government the ability to search any personal records and conduct surveillance on any citizen with little judicial oversight, people of the United States are annoyed, angered, and apprehensive too. Following the events occurring on September 11, 2001 and the ongoing wars in the Middle East, the government now maintains the right to jail non-citizens solely on suspicion and the FBI can investigate any American citizen for criminal matters if the Bureau declares the investigation involves matters of intelligence, all because the government endorsed and enacted the USA Patriot Act. The Alien and Sedition Acts are comprised of four smaller acts: the Alien Enemies Act, the Alien Act, the Naturalization Act, and the Sedition Act. During the time these Acts were passed, the government was comprised of Federalists who...

...The Sarbanes-Oxley Act of 2002 Brandice Vasquez, University of Phoenix July 22, 2012 Linda Moore As businesses progress throughout the years, so must laws and regulations to ensure legal business practices remain ethical. Unfortunately, rules and regulations must be made because regrettable actions from large corporations are tainted with greed and power. Corporate Governance Within the past few years headlines have told distressing stories of unethical practices from large corporations such as Merrill Lynch, Enron, Martha Stewart, Adelphia, Boeing, Rite Aid, Xerox, and many more (Arjoon, 2013). According to Arjoon (2013), the definition of corporate governance, “is the system by which business corporations are directed and controlled. The corporate governance structure specifies the distribution of rights and responsibilities among different participants in the corporation, such as, the board, managers, shareholders and other stakeholders and spells out the rules and procedures for making decisions in corporate affairs. By doing this, it also provides the structure through which the company objectives are set and the means of attaining those objectives and monitoring performance.” The object of corporate governance is to ensure that a corporation is held to strict guidelines that promotes fairness, transparency and accountability, and that any action taking by a manager is of the interest of the major stakeholder groups.

...Acts is believed to be the second part of a two-volume work. The Book of Acts begins with a summary of the previous volume, the Gospel of Luke, and then introduces the second volume. In Acts 1:1-5, Luke describes Jesus' ministry and passion; volume two Acts describes events after Jesus' ascension and the giving of the Holy Spirit. As a literary parallel to Luke-Acts Josephus writes a two-volume work, and introduces the second volume in a similar manner. He states the correct use of somewhat idiosyncratic political titles corroborates the view that the Book of Acts was written by someone historically close to the events narrated, such as Luke was. Lukan authorship of the Book of Acts explains the extensive linguistic agreement between the it and the Gospel of Luke and the details that Luke includes about the church in Antioch, the city from which he hailed. Several secondary sources confirm the Lukan authorship of the Book of Acts. The Muratorian canon states "Moreover the Acts of the Apostles are included in one book. For 'most excellent Theophilus' Luke compiled the individual events that took place in his presence.” The Anti-Marcionite Prologue identifies Luke as the author of a second volume, Acts: "And afterwards the same Luke wrote the Acts of the Apostles." Origen identifies the author of Acts as Luke, the same who wrote the gospel: "Others that it was Luke, he who wrote the gospel and the Acts" (H.E. 6.25.14). Clement of Alexandria accepts Lukan......

Contract Labour Act, 1970 (India)

...a contractual relation and by laws that make such arrangements permissible and enforceable. The essence of the contract labourer’s obligation is his surrender for a specified period of the freedom to quit his work and his employer. Other stipulations cover such matters as repayment of the costs of transportation, housing, training, and other expenses. The system of employing contract labour is prevalent in most industries in different occupations including skilled and semi skilled jobs. It is also prevalent in agricultural and allied operations and to some extent in the services sector. A workman is deemed to be employed as Contract Labour when he is hired in connection with the work of an establishment by or through a contractor. Contract workmen are indirect employees; persons who are hired, supervised and remunerated by a contractor who, in turn, is compensated by the establishment. Contract labour has to be employed for work which is specific and for definite duration. The system of contract labour offers tremendous opportunities for employment and allows the employers flexibility to choose what is best for them. This helps improve productivity and service competitiveness. The principal employer should however have to ensure payment of wages to contract labour as laid down by the law in force as also other basic amenities and other social security benefits The contract workers generally belong to the unorganized sector as they lack bargaining power, have......

...Understanding the author of Acts is very important. It gives us a better understanding of the book, the genre in which the book was written in and also the time period and who the book was addressed to. Many believe the author of the book of Acts had written one complete volume of work that was broken into 2 different parts. The book of Acts is the fifth book of the New Testament. It traces the Growth of the early church. It begins with the ascension of Jesus and concludes with Paul in Rome during his first imprisonment. Though the book of Luke and the Acts of the Apostle are very similar, the author does not name himself in either book. Neither Luke or Acts allows us to determine directly or in directly who the Author is.( Kummel) But Fernando also says “Stylistically and Structurally the Gospel of Luke and the Acts of the Apostle are so closely related that they have to be assigned to the same author. (pp.21) There is very little doubt that the Book of Acts and the Gospel of Luke come from the same author but the debate is about who that author is. While the writer of Luke and Acts is anonymous, there is evidence the points to the authorship of these books. Fernando states “The external evidence available for the authorship of Acts, gleaned from the writings of the church in the first few centuries, is unanimous that the author was Luke. When we look at the internal evidence, it points toward the author’s identity. Once readers assume Luke and Acts come......

The Human Rights Act is one of the main laws protecting your human rights in the UK. It contains a list of 16 rights, also known as ‘articles’ which belong to all people in the UK, and it outlines several ways that these rights should be protected.
