Court proposes new rules to prevent divorcing parents from fleeing Singapore with children
When parents divorce, the children suffer – sometimes to the extent of being spirited out of Singapore by one parent and never seeing the other again.
The authorities are now planning to introduce new legislation to stop such “parental child abductions” that happen when some marriages crumble, The Sunday Times has learnt.
It will empower agencies such as the Immigration and Checkpoints Authority (ICA) to stop a parent, who has been prohibited by a court order from taking the child out of the country, from leaving Singapore with the child, a Family Justice Courts (FJC) spokesman told The Sunday Times. Those who defy court orders will be caught by the authorities at the checkpoints, she added.
Currently under the Women’s Charter, it is an offence for a person to take a child, who is under a…

From as far back as quite early childhood, I have been interested in science: zoology, botany, biology, entomology, physics–if I had been mentored differently, I might have become a researcher instead of a poet. I possess that quality of curiosity that pushes for details, a trait that people refer to as ‘geeky.’ For me, it is fun to contribute my backyard observations to The Dragonfly Woman’s research or to the Eastern Pennsylvania Phenology Project, which asks for assistance from ‘citizen scientists.’ This evening, I am taking some elderly best beloveds to a fundraiser concert for March for Science.

Empiricists have to begin as observers, and here’s where my science and poetry passions twine. Today’s backyard notes involve gray squirrels and the hypothesis that they learn behavior swiftly through their (many) generations.
My backyard is essentially a lawn and…

When the Berlin wall fell, the Stasi just expanded west. This is my family story of the three year state attack on my family by multiple agencies, the individual and collective corruption of most of those involved and the inbuilt extreme endemic, systemic corruption that drives them to destroy the lives of many thousands of innocent people and families every year.
NORTHANTS ANTI-SOCIAL SERVICES WRECK MY FAMILY
At the time of re-writing this version in early 2015, I’m aged forty-seven and my wife is forty-three. We have been together for twenty-three years. We have a twenty-one year old daughter who stayed with her grandparents when we moved away. She works in a brain injury unit, volunteers at a local hospital, and is in her second year studying psychology at university. It’s interesting to note that she is doing an Open University course. Originally, she was to…

– – – EXPLORING THE COUNTRYSIDE AND LANES OF DORSET – – –
A strange title you might think since all hills presumably have a view, but these are some of Dorset’s best known hills and I thought I would feature them as my theme for this week.
You might think that hills are something straightforward but they are not, as we shall see. For instance, we might start by asking the question, ‘When is a hill not a hill?’ Well, perhaps when it is a mountain, or maybe a hillock, or maybe a………. Well, you get my drift.
Anyway, to get us going, I thought we could take a trip to Bulbarrow Hill, and just for a change, I thought we could make the trip in winter as well as summer.

Bulbarrow Hill is arguably not technically a hill as it is actually…

Conway, R (on the application of) v Secretary of State for Justice  EWHC 640 – read judgment
Noel Douglas Conway, 67, is a victim of motor neurone disease. He has just been refused permission to seek judicial review of the criminalisation of physician-assisted suicide under the Suicide Act 1961. The High Court considered that Parliament has recently examined the issue following the Supreme Court decision in the 2014 Nicklinson case , and two out of three judges concluded that it would be “institutionally inappropriate” for a court to declare that s.2(1) of the Suicide Act was incompatible with the right to privacy and autonomy under Article 8 of the ECHR. Charles J dissented (and those who are interested in his opinion might want to look at his ruling last year in the case of a minimally conscious patient).
