The introduction of extraordinary anti terrorist legislation need not lead to suspension of habeas corpus and other fundamental rights promised in the constitution of a state. Yet, so long as the containment if not elimination of terrorism is sought by legislative measures and other acts of the state, usually strengthened executive powers, the question remains whether such legislation and other measures are not ultimately corrosive of the democratic fabric of the state and civil society. When the threat of terrorism is such that a state seeks to contain it by introducing progressively more repressive measures, or by rendering permanent legislation that was introduced purely to provide the state with temporary powers, does not the of such techniques of repression bode ill for any democratic polity? To summon one instance of such of extraordinary legislation, consider the case of India, which was recently taken to task by a Human Right Committee set up under the International Covenant on Civil and Political Rights, to which India is a signatory.
They may tell you the story about their ancient history or something like that but not politics. Pity for me because I was just about to ask him why their previous regime dictators are not creative at all, reflected by their names. Lon Nol is just read the 1st word in reverse way for the 2nd word, while Pol Pot just changing the last character in 1st word with to become the 2nd word : ).
A key advantage of BDI based agent programming is that agents can deliberate about which course of action to adopt to achieve a goal or respond to an event. However, while state of the art BDI based agent programming languages provide flexible support for expressing plans, they are typically limited to a single, hard coded, deliberation strategy (perhaps with some parameterisation) for all task environments. In this paper, we present an alternative approach.
Aha!!! The skeptic argues: are nice in physics, but epidemiology is much more complex, we do not know the equations or the laws, and we will never in our lifetime know the detailed anatomy of the human body. This ignorance pleading argument always manages to win the hearts of the mystic, especially among researchers who feel uncomfortable encoding partial scientific knowledge in a model. Yet Lady Nature does not wait for us to know things before she makes our heart muscle respond to the fat content in the blood.
Have you tried Lugz shoes, yet? I am such a shoe freak that at one time I owned over 50 pairs of high heels. When I found the Lugz brand, I stopped buying any other brand as these shoes will last for years to come. I was impressed ! I will buy from them once more.
