 I was in denial about my anorexia... but I needed help
Gazette (Essex), February 28, 2015 Saturday

 I HAVE lived with anorexia for six years, although I harboured disordered attitudes towards food from the age of eight or nine. Neither my parents nor I registered these signs as an issue because, like most people, we knew very little about eating disorders. As my eating disorder became severe, I didn't believe I could actually be anorexic because I wasn't losing weight to be pretty.

 Soldiers' Buildings Pulled Down
Ghanaian Chronicle (Accra), February 26, 2015

 LAKPLEKU, A village opposite the shooting range of the Bundase Training Camp on the Tema-Aflao highway in the Ningo-Prampram District of the Greater Accra Region was thrown into a state of confusion on Saturday February 14, 2015, after serving and retiring soldiers watched in awe as houses they have struggled to put up were razed to the ground. At least 16 houses were pulled down when bulldozers descended on the site. The situation has made the affected soldiers stranded, especially when their pension entitlements and other emoluments were invested in these projects. Cost of damage is estimated to be around GHc 650,000 (6.5 billion cedis) representing structures, the layout and pillars. Incidentally, this has come at a time when those who retired have to vacate the barracks accommodation that was offered them by the Government to serve the State. The soldiers, The Chronicle gathered, grew wild to the extent that one of them reportedly attempted to behead one Amamu, alleged to be the commander of a group of men said to be land-guards for a company, Gran Hill Ltd.

Daily News (Sri Lanka), February 25, 2015 Wednesday

 Sri Lanka, Feb. 25 -- Today we digress somewhat from the beaten track to focus on a very serious issue that is largely going by default due to the current focus on the hot topic of politics. It is no exaggeration to say that our roads are fast becoming a sort of the killing fields today going by the number of fatal accidents one reads about almost on a daily basis. Valuable lives are being needlessly snuffed out - sometimes entire families - through the negligence of a demon behind the wheels. The frequency of road accidents are such the public have become indifferent to the phenomenon reminiscent of the times of bomb attacks in the city some time ago. It is time that the authorities sat up and took note of this growing trend.

Mondaq Business Briefing, February 20, 2015 Friday

 We often witness misconduct in the course of labour disputes, with the union side sheltering behind freedom of expression. The Canadian Charter1 and the Quebec Charter2 both guarantee freedom of expression. How is a dispute between arising while a collective agreement is still in effect to be managed? When the parties are governed by a collective agreement, all disputes must be resolved through the grievance and arbitration process. What if the union decides to behave as if it were actually involved in a labour dispute over the renewal of a collective agreement? And what if, in addition, a union representative decides to aim both spoken and written personal attacks at an employer representative?

 DISCUSSION ON THE DEFAULTS AND IMPROVEMENTS OF LEGAL PROTECTION ON PRIVACY AND DATA IN CYBERSPACE
Law - Technology, Fourth Quarter 2014

FULL TEXT Introduction  The internet is an effective tool to promote free flow of information. The internet can also be a weapon, especially where in the wrong hands, misleading and erroneous information can be distributed and cause harm to innocent persons. While freedom of speech should be guaranteed through the internet, the internet must be balanced with other inalienable rights, such as the right of privacy and one 's right to data to be free from infringement. My discussion explores the depths of flow of information through the internet, the laws which attempt but fail to provide safeguards and proposed legal solutions.  I. Characteristics of the Infringement Upon Privacy and Data on the Internet

 India: Courts Can Examine Validity Of Trademark Registration At Interim Stage In Exceptional Cases
Mondaq Business Briefing, February 20, 2015 Friday

  Registration of a trademark is a prima facie proof of its validity and the onus to prove the invalidity of the trademark lies heavily on the defendant.Validity of a trademark can be finally determined only by the Intellectual Property Appellate Board. However, there is no bar on civil courts to consider a challenge to the validity of a trademark at interlocutory stage.In an infringement suit, the court may refuse to grant an injunction in favor of the plaintiff, if the registered mark appears to be ex facie totally illegal, fraudulent or shocks the conscience of the court. INTRODUCTION The Full Bench of the Bombay High Court ("Court"), in the reference made to it held that at the interlocutory stage, the Court has the jurisdiction to prima facie examine the validity of the registered trademark, i.e. the Court can examine if the registration of the mark is ex facie illegal, fraudulent or shocks the conscience of the Court. In such a case the Court may refuse to grant an injunction to the plaintiff on the basis of infringement of a registered trademark.

 Canada: Important Changes To The Alberta Limitations Act
Mondaq Business Briefing, February 18, 2015 Wednesday

 Recent amendments to the Alberta Limitations Act create more certainty and change the law with respect to certain types of third-party claims and notices to co-defendants where a defendant who is a tortfeasor seeks contribution from another tortfeasor who would also be liable to the plaintiff, whether that person is already a party to the action or not ("Contribution Claim"). The most important change to the Act resolves a serious problem that arose as a result of the decision of the Alberta Court of Appeal in Arcelormittal Tubular Products Roman S.A. v Fluor Canada Ltd. et. al, 2013 ABCA 279 (leave to appeal to the SCC dismissed). This decision reversed the effect of a number of lower-court decisions, so that no Contribution Claim could be made where the limitation period between the plaintiff and the potential third party had expired. As a result, a defendant could lose the right to make a Contribution Claim even before being served with a claim or being aware of a plaintiff's claim. It is important to note that a Contribution Claim can arise when a party is served with any type of originating claim, like a Statement of Claim or third-party notice ("Claim").

 Drastic retooling of class action vehicle needed; Linda S. Mullenix, Ending Class Actions as We Know Them: Rethinking the American Class Action, 64 Emory L.J. 399 (2014)
Class Action Law Monitor, February 15, 2015

 Although the class action vehicle has been a part of American litigation for more than 75 years, its transformation over the last 25 years raises legitimate questions about whether it actually accomplishes its stated goals. In this article, Linda S. Mullenix proposes the elimination of the damages class action, to be replaced with more robust public regulatory enforcement for alleged violation of laws. There exists competing narratives surrounding the desirability of class action litigation. In the romantic narrative, class litigation is necessary for the helpless plaintiffs incapable of defending themselves against villainous corporations. The plaintiffs lack the power and resources to take on the well-funded and powerful corporate defendants. Individuals would have no ability to vindicate their rights without aggregating their claims. That narrative also pushes the idea that class litigation achieves an efficient resolution of claims, justly compensates parties and deters defendants from further misconduct.
