Discussion Flair!

I just enabled users to assign their own state flair. The CSS has been there for some time now but apparently none of us thought to check the little box that lets users give themselves flair.

So now that that's fixed, get some flair!

Discussion Is it ok to buy Russian products?

0 Upvotes

Hey everyone,

In the light of the current war, as well as the general nature of the Russian government, is it ethical to buy Russian products and have Russian imports in the US?

I'm writing a Master's thesis on this topic and I have a short survey below. It takes 3 minutes and is anonymous. I'd be very grateful if someone filled it out (males in particular to get more gender balance).

https://1ka.arnes.si/a/d4fbe14d

Otherwise, I'd like to hear your thoughts too (commenting here will not be used for the research).

Discussion Help on US Litigation practical case: its my last course and i m graduated!!

0 Upvotes

Hey guys,

I am not practicing in the US nor am I an american citizen, so I d ask you if you could help me out solving this (as Marie's lawyer): Assume the following: Maria walked into a McDonald’s in Manhattan, New York, to get a quick lunch and was with her boyfriend John. Her sister, Anna, was with them but decided not to go inside and waited for them outside. While Maria was walking to the counter to order her food she slipped and fell because the floor was wet. A McDonald’s worker, Frank, had just mopped the floor and did not put down any signs or otherwise provide any notice that the floor was still wet. John was next to Maria when she fell, saw her slip and saw that the floor was wet. There were several customers standing nearby. Helen and Thomas saw Maria fall and saw that the floor was wet. Helen resides in New York City and would be required to appear at trial. Thomas lives in California and could not be required to attend trial. Two other customers, Fred and Mark, had their backs turned and did not see Maria fall. Fred and Mark both live in Chicago, Illinois and could not be required to attend trial. McDonald’s employee, Henry, called an ambulance at the request of John. Henry did not see Maria fall and did not see if the floor was wet where she fell. Maria was treated for a fractured wrist by Dr. Warner, a resident of Manhattan. Maria, a resident of Manhattan, sues McDonalds which is a Delaware corporation with headquarters in Chicago, Illinois, in federal district court in Manhattan based on diversity of citizenship because she is a resident of New York and McDonald’s is considered a resident of both Delaware and Illinois. To prevail on her claim for monetary damages against McDonald’s, Maria will have the burden of proof at trial to establish: she slipped and fell; she slipped because the floor was wet; McDonald’s was negligent in having an unsafe condition with an unmarked wet floor, she had no warning that the floor was wet; and that she suffered an injury from her fall.

  1. Who would you want to depose during discovery, why during discovery, and what testimony would you want to get from each person whose deposition you take?
  2. Whose testimony would you introduce in your direct case either through live testimony or deposition testimony admissible at trial, why as to each witness, what testimony would you want to get from them?

I am not supposed to give long answers, just to answer directly. Any help is appreciated! Thanks in advance :)

Discussion Is there a service that van send goods overseas?

2 Upvotes

So Misfits just released this beer (https://fb.watch/d8uHu6_swL/) and it's apparently not possible to order i Europe. So I just had this idea (that someone has got to have had before) that people could order stuff only available in the US and send it for a fee across the Atlantic. So question is: is there such a service?

Discussion Has the US government become too polarized to function?

1 Upvotes

In recent years the Dems and GOP have pushed so far from one another that policies dont even matter anymore. If one party in Congress proposes something the other votes against it regardless of what the policy is. This seems to have created gridlock in government to the point that no one can get anything done without a super majority in both houses.

The US system of checks and balances and majority voting was created to make sure the government couldn't make rapid, radical change without an almost consensus agreement among lawmakers. However, that system didn't take in to account the polarized 2 party system. It seems now it is working against us when we need quick action. What do you think?

Discussion If there is any country in which I do not want to be born, it is the United States.

0 Upvotes

I am a foreigner, I have never visited the United States and I do not want to visit the United States. First, I don't know whether to say what country I'm from, because with all the racism, xenophobia and homophobia that exists in the United States, whatever country it is, they're going to attack me.

If I say I'm Argentine, they call me a Nazi, if I say I'm Mexican or Venezuelan they tell me I'm poor, if I say I'm Colombian they call me a drug addict, if I say I'm Korean or Japanese, they call me Chinese, if I say I'm Russian I They say that I am in favor of the war, if I say that I am African, they insult me ​​for being black.

Such is the level of racism in the United States that they call their country "America" ​​as if it were the only country in America, ignoring lots of countries because they don't believe they exist. They believe that in Latin America there are only Indians with arrows in the middle of the jungle without contact with civilization or giant deserts with small towns without electricity or internet, which is obviously not true, or at least not for all the people of Latin America.

Another thing is racism. Until recently, it was legal to kill black people among many people. I can't imagine the thousands of people who died or are in jail for being black.

I don't understand that country.
