In this chapter, students will be able to understand: What are the elements of negligence? What are the doctrines that help a plaintiff establish a case of negligence? What are the defenses to a claim of negligence? What are the elements of strict liability?
BEING CONSCIOUS of the need to preserve the human environment in general and the marine
environment in particular,
RECOGNIZING that deliberate, negligent or accidental release of oil and other harmful substances
from ships constitutes a serious source of pollution,
RECOGNIZING ALSO the importance of the International Convention for the Prevention of
Pollution of the Sea by Oil, 1954, as being the first multilateral instrument to be concluded with the
prime objective of protecting the environment, and appreciating the significant contribution which
that Convention has made in preserving the ...
This paper examines the incidence of taxation in Vietnam, using data from the Living Standards
Survey of 1997-98 and an input-output matrix for 1997. The tax system in 1998 was slightly
progressive, taking the equivalent of 7.8% of spending for households in the lowest, and 10.3%
from households in the highest, expenditure quintile. The replacement of the turnover tax by a
VAT in January 1999 made the system marginally more progressive, while the falling
importance of taxes on trade has had a negligible effect on the overall incidence of the tax
IMPEDANCE MATCHING NETWORKS
One of the most critical requirements in the design of high-frequency electronic circuits is that the maximum possible signal energy is transferred at each point. In other words, the signal should propagate in a forward direction with a negligible echo (ideally, zero). Echo signal not only reduces the power available but also deteriorates the signal quality due to the presence of multiple re¯ections. As noted in the preceding chapter, impedance can be transformed to a new value by adjusting the turn ratio of a transformer that couples it with the circuit.
Average depth model has a variety of applications in hydraulic engineering,
especially in applications that flow depth is much smaller than the width of the flow.
In this method the vertical variation is negligible and the hydraulic variables
average integrated from channel bed to the surface free for the vertical axis. in
equations arising management, pure hydrostatic pressure is assumed that
not really valid in the case of flow in the bed is curved and can not be described
curvature effects of the bed.

My interest in the relationship between tort law and the implementation of
international human rights standards, particularly the European Convention on
Human Rights, was prompted by a series of cases decided in the last decade that
challenged the English courts to make public authorities accountable for their
actions. Perhaps the most notable was the House of Lords’ decision in X v.
Remaining Funds, which account for €147 billion of shares/units in issue, consist primarily
of mixed funds, but also include real estate and other unclassified funds. This category has
performed positively in Q1 2012, second only to equity funds in terms of revaluations, with
asset growth of €8.9 billion or 6.4 per cent. Remaining funds were the strongest performing
category in Q4 2011, and despite a continued resilient performance, the category attracted
negligible net new investment of €0.1 billion.

The elderly in India often end up in a state of deprivation and negligence as there is no proper
social security system as in the West (OASIS, 1999). The majority of the elderly work in the
informal sector with low levels of wages and deficient working conditions and this has also
put the aged in a state of deprivation, vulnerability and distress in old age in terms of both
health and economic security (Helpage International, 2002). Empirical studies by different
researchers have shown a gradual decline in the standard of life of the aged with high...
It could be argued that the prevailing sense of interest rate predictability at the time of the
“conundrum” combined with a banking system willing to take huge duration exposures would
have made a policy of bond sales ineffective. But it should be remembered that this sense of
interest rate predictability was itself deliberately nurtured by the Federal Reserve policy of a
“measured pace” in increasing the Federal funds rate. The Federal Reserve was anxious to
avoid a bond market collapse similar to the one that took place around the early 1994
The security of many public-key cryptosystems relies on the apparent intractability of the
computational problems studied in this chapter. In a cryptographic setting, it is prudent to
make the assumption that the adversary is very powerful. Thus, informally speaking, a computational
problem is said to be easy or tractable if it can be solved in (expected)1 polynomial
time, at least for a non-negligible fraction of all possible inputs.

The belief that children will take care of the parents in the old age is eroding in India where
the family size has been cut down as a result of the demographic process (Dandelkar, 1996).
The situation in the urban areas shows a rejection of older people by the next generation and
this is spreading to rural areas (Desai, 1985). In the nuclear family regime, the position of the
aged becomes more vulnerable and is treated as a burden to the family (Nayar, 1992). The
social negligence of the aged occurs due to cultural, social and economic relations within the...
In October 2005, an Angelina County, Texas, court held a woman accountable in an automobile
crash that resulted in the death of her 1-month-old son who was not properly restrained in the
vehicle. The woman forgot the child’s car seat and let a friend hold the child in her lap while a
14-year-old, unlicensed, uninsured driver drove the vehicle. The car slammed into an oncoming
pickup truck and rolled over, killing the boy. The woman pleaded guilty to negligent homicide
charges and was sentenced to a deferred three-year prison sentence and is required to attend...

Qi and the carryover Q2 flows so that Tu = 7\. It is further assumed that there is no energy generation and negligible heat transfer. Hence, for the unloaded portion of the film, QiTt + Q2^T2 = (Q2 + Q1)(T1)
Next an energy balance is performed on the active portion of the lubricating film (Fig. 28.6). The energy generation rate is taken to be Fj UIJ, and the conduction heat loss to the shaft and bearing are taken to be a portion of the heat generation rate, or XFj UIJ. Accordingly, PGiCT1 - (?QsaC*Ta + PQ2CT2) + fl"^*7 =O (28.13)...
The impact assessment concludes that a 'strict liability' standard obliging depositaries to return
instruments lost in custody irrespective of fault or negligence is both conducive to ensuring a
high level of investor protection and to achieving a uniform standard across the EU.
