Subject says it all. It really is time to start taking lawyers and other bottom feeders to task. Mentally ill people should be treated for their paranoia, not have it confirmed.

I have no problem with the lady getting assistance, but unfortunately the courts think they or a jury can decide what the cause is.

Based on just the title, I had no problem with it either. My first thought was how nice it must be to live in a civilized country that treats severe mental illnesses as a legitimate disability.

How can you maximize the advantages of outcome-based education, without standardized linguistics targeted to areas of core competencies? Hiring managers have expressed interest in consensus oriented, business ready, net native, grey hats, who speak in code and collaborate in dynamic non-traditional employment. To breed a culture of millenial code beasts, we must reach into their social sphere, and peer coach them with best practices.

Your theory is obviously complete bullshit. You don't even have any synergy.

In the USA, a recipe can't be covered by copyright because it's a collection of facts and directions, but theoretically it can be patented as a process and/or composition of matter. It's very difficult to get a recipe past prior art and obviousness, but it is considered patentable subject matter.

If Russia or its proxies did not shoot down the civilian airliner, why did Russia veto a UN resolution to fully and openly investigate the incident? If Russia is innocent they should have been happy to have an investigation to prove their innocence.

To be fair, even if Russia weren't responsible for MH17, they might not want UN investigators poking around and finding all kinds of other stuff that they've been doing in the area. Being innocent of this particular crime doesn't necessarily make them innocent.
