From two students of Marjory Stoneman Douglas High School comes a declaration for our times, and an in-depth look at the making of the #NeverAgain movement that arose after the Parkland, Florida, shooting.
On February 14, 2018, seventeen-year-old David Hogg and his fourteen-year-old sister, Lauren, went to school at Marjory Stoneman Douglas High School, like any normal Wednesday. That day, of course, the world changed. By the next morning, with seventeen classmates and faculty dead, they had joined the leadership of a movement to save their own lives, and the lives of all other young people in America. It's a leadership position they did not seek, and did not want--but events gave them no choice.
The morning after the massacre, David Hogg told CNN: "We're children. You guys are the adults. You need to take some action and play a role. Work together. Get over your politics and get something done."
This book is a manifesto for the movement begun that day, one that has already changed America--with voices of a new generation that are speaking truth to power, and are determined to succeed where their elders have failed. With moral force and clarity, a new generation has made it clear that problems previously deemed unsolvable due to powerful lobbies and political cowardice will be theirs to solve. Born just after Columbine and raised amid seemingly endless war and routine active shooter drills, this generation now says, "Enough!". This book is their statement of purpose, and the story of their lives. It is the essential guide to the #NeverAgain movement.

As well as current and recent benefits, this updated edition covers developments in: .ECHR and Human Rights .Overpayments .Child Support and benefits .Housing benefits .Civil partnerships .State pension .The role of welfare benefits A clearer book on a difficult topic does not exist, whether the reader is a claimant, a welfare adviser or a professional.

Clause 42 of the Welfare Reform Bill proposes to amend the Child Support Act 1991 to give new sanction powers to the Child Maintenance and Enforcement Commission (CMEC) to disqualify a person from holding a passport, a driving licence, or both, if he or she has wilfully and culpably failed to pay maintenance for a child. This administrative power would replace the current court-based systems for such disqualifications. The Committee believe (as first expressed in their 3rd report of session 2007-08, HL 27, ISBN 9780104014462) that it is constitutionally unsatisfactory for CMEC and its contractors to have a sanction to withdraw a person's right to hold a passport, despite the proposed right of appeal to a court by anyone so disqualified. There are also insufficient safeguards to ensure that powers to exercise sanctions will be exercised by officials of appropriate seniority within CMEC, and something more than the ministerial assurances given on this matter is required.
This text is about the very essence of urban planning in a market economy. It is concerned with people - landowners, developers, investors, politicians and ordinary members of the public - who produce change in towns and cities as they relate to each other and react to development pressure. Whether such change occurs slowly and is almost unnoticed, or happens rapidly and is highly disruptive, a production process is creating a finished product: the built environment. This form of production, known as the land and property development process, is regulated but not controlled by the state. Urban planning is therefore best considered as one form of state intervention in the development process.;Since urban planning would have no legitimate basis without state power, it is an inherently political activity, able to alter the distribution of scarce environmental resources. Through doing so, it seeks to resolve conflicts of interest over the use and development of land. However, urban plans that appear to favour particular interests (such as house-builders) above others (such as community groups) provoke intense controversy. Development planning can thus become highly politicized, with alliances and divisions between politicians not always explained by traditional party politics.;These issues are explored with particular reference to statutory plan-making at the local level. The author draws on his extensive research into urban planning and development, making use of recent case studies and examples to illustrate key points. There are four parts. The first explores the operation of land and property markets and development processes, and examines how the state intervenes in the form of urban planning. The second part looks at the people and organizations who play a critical role in shaping the built environment and considers their relationship with the planning system. Specific attention is paid to important actors in the development process, such as landowners, developers, financial institutions, professional advisers and to the variety of agencies in the public sector that aim to promote development. This concludes with discussion of public-private partnerships and growth coalitions. The third part of the book concentrates on local development planning.
The fundamental contents of John Ridley's comprehensive "Safety at Work" are presented in this book in a more user-friendly format, suitable for readers whose needs are less demanding than those of a professional member of the Institution of Occupational Safety and Health. These will primarily be students for the NEBOSH Certificate Level examinations and the "Managing Safely" and "Working Safely" awards. The book should also be of interest to others whose roles demand a level of knowledge and competence in health and safety practice, including human resources managers, office and site managers, and all staff with line responsibility for health and safety matters.
The "Welfare Reform Act 2009" received Royal Assent on 12 November 2009. This Act amends the law relating to social security and reforms the welfare and benefit system to improve support and incentives for people to move from benefits into work. It includes measures to increase personal responsibility within the welfare system. The Act will also provide more employment choices for people with disabilities. It confers regulation-making powers that can be used to give adult disabled people greater choice and control over the way in which relevant services are provided by relevant authorities. The Act also provides encouragement of parental responsibility by introducing a requirement for joint birth registration and by amending the law relating to child support.
In this Report, the Joint Committee on Human Rights considers: the draft Mental Capacity Act 2005 Code of Practice; draft guidance on Bournewood patients (people who lack capacity to consent to the arrangements made for their care, where those arrangements amount to a deprivation of liberty); and the Government's approach to the Council of Europe Recommendation (2004/10) on the protection of the human rights and dignity of persons with mental disorder.
This paper builds on two previous reports published by the Committee on the Mental Health Bill during its passage through Parliament in 2006-07 ('Legislative Scrutiny: Seventh Progress Report (HL 112 / HC 555)', ISBN 9780104010754; and 'Legislative Scrutiny: Mental Health Bill (HL 40 / HC 288)', ISBN 9780104010136), both of which are available to purchase below.
This study provides a survey of five countries - Denmark, England and Wales, Finland, Ireland and Italy. Each in turn discusses the historical background of the legal concern for children within the national culture, the present situation, and future directions in policy and practice. Following recent scandals of child abuse, Europeans have had a rigorous debate over laws for the protection of children. The awareness of maltreatment and neglect, and the ability of the society to react to abuse, vary greatly from one nation to another within the European Union. The differences between different countries' approach to the problem centre on the welfare experience employed with each country: the Scandinavian model based on the public sector support for all; the British system allocating resources to the neediest with a stigma attached to the need for its use; and the emphasis on voluntary and private social work in Ireland and Italy. In the latter two countries, the role of the Catholic Church is examined: the assets of its community outreach and the price of its insistence that activities within a family should remain private. The book provides useful reading for academics and practitioners in child care, social work, social policy and comparative studies. Contributors include: Margit Harder, Keith Pringle, Riita Tuomisto, Elina Vuori-Karvia, Helen Buckley, Laura Bini and Monica Toselli.

The Commitee welcomes the Child Poverty Bill, intended to enshrine in law the Government's commitment to eradicate child poverty by 2020, as a human rights enhancing measure, but also recommends some amendments. It proposes: that the Secretary of State should be placed under a duty to implement the child poverty strategy; inclusion in the Bill of a target which would apply to children not living in qualifying households (eg Gypsy and Roma children); greater precision in the duties to consult children about the preparation of child poverty strategies.

This book is directed to academics, educators, and government policy-makers who are concerned about addressing emerging cyber-bullying and anti-authority student expressions through the use of cell phone and Internet technologies. There is a current policy vacuum relating to the extent of educators' legal responsibilities to intervene when such expression takes place outside of school hours and school grounds on home computers and personal cell phones. Students, teachers, and school officials are often targets of such expression. The author analyzes government and school responses by reviewing positivist paradigms. Her review of a range of legal frameworks and judicial decisions from constitutional, human rights, child protection, and tort law perspectives redirects attention to legally substantive and pluralistic approaches that can help schools balance student free expression, supervision, safety, and learning.
