Supreme Court let stand a ruling that said homeless people have a constitutional right to sleep on public property outdoors if no other shelter is available to them. The justices without comment on Monday turned away an appeal by Boise, Idaho, which said the federal appeals court ruling would leave cities “powerless” to address residents health and safety concerns. A land search Sunday failed to find any sign of the missing pair and divers returned to the sea in the afternoon amid increasing speculation both could be in the water.
In the interim we had done some research on the sport. Croquet probably developed out of a 13th century French peasant’s game (the word croquet is derived from Old French for “shepherd’s crook”). By the 1850s a more genteel version became the rage in England, as it was the first game that allowed Victorian.
Lakshman’s speculations on the “mystery of the enduring Indian passion for all things English” conclude, however, on a different note. Anamika’s father, on being pressed to explain the success of his daughter, who has set her eyes on Harvard and a career as a cardiovascular surgeon, praised her for dreaming big and attributed her triumph to the family’s “emphasis on education”. This is, of course, very much in keeping with the general perception of Indian Americans as an ambitious, hard working, and law abiding ethnic group, and Lakshman all too easily moves to the triumphalist conclusion that “Indians are simply people who believe that hard work, a rigorous education and familial support are the keys to their dreams.” But is it the Indians alone who believe in hard work and the virtues of family life? And, by implication, are we not to believe that other ethnic groups in the US are much less appreciative of education? There is no reason to believe that other immigrant communities are less invested in “the American dream” than Indian Americans; similarly, whatever their facility with the English language, it is far from being demonstrably true that Indians in the US have a greater command over it than those from other immigrant communities..
They owe them a performance of songs they written at that specific show as they are that evening. The ticket doesn promise what happened at a show three years ago, or five years ago, or ten years from now. Live music is beautiful that way, because it that night only.
Mac Book (haha, lame, I know). Seriously, investing in a Mac was one of my best ideas ever. I just love it! It is such a relief to be able to actually work without my laptop crashing every five minutes.. In late June, I was walking around town in Southampton and there was a photographer taking pictures (paparazzi style) of different people. I hadn thought of it since, but it exciting to see that they used the picture! The weirdest part though is that I coincidentally wore the same outfit (minus the shoes, bag and necklace) yesterday prior to learning about the feature because I felt like I should give the shorts a few more wears before storing them until next summer. I never use preppy as a word to define my personal style, but it is the Hamptons, making it all the more appropriate..
