It is one of thirteen United States courts of appeals; the court offers a unique internet presence that includes wiki and RSS feeds of opinions and oral arguments. It is notable for having one of the most prominent law and economics scholars, Judge Frank H. Easterbrook, on its court. Richard Posner, another prominent law and economics scholar served on this court until his retirement in 2017; as of May 23, 2018, the judges on the court are as follows: Chief judges have administrative responsibilities with respect to their circuits, preside over any panel on which they serve unless the circuit justice is on the panel.
Unlike the Supreme Court, where one justice is nominated to be chief, the office of chief judge rotates among the circuit judges. To be chief, a judge must have been in active service on the court for at least one year, be under the age of 65, have not served as chief judge. A vacancy is filled by the judge highest in seniority among the group of qualified judges; the chief judge serves until age 70, whichever occurs first. The age restrictions are waived if no members of the court would otherwise be qualified for the position; when the office was created in 1948, the chief judge was the longest-serving judge who had not elected to retire on what has since 1958 been known as senior status or declined to serve as chief judge. After August 6, 1959, judges could not remain chief after turning 70 years old; the current rules have been in operation since October 1, 1982. The court has eleven seats for active judges, numbered in the order. Judges who retire into senior status leave their seat vacant.
That seat is filled by the next circuit judge appointed by the president.

Henry Joseph Mansell is an American prelate of the Roman Catholic Church. He was the fourth Archbishop of Hartford, having served as Bishop of Buffalo from 1995 to 2003; the Archbishop is believed by many in the Buffalo Diocese to have an eidetic memory, different than a photographic memory, being the instant recall of images and objects. However, he can remember names of, for example, Confirmation candidates without note cards or assistance. Pope Francis accepted Archbishop Mansell's resignation from the pastoral care of the archdiocese on October 29, 2013, the Archbishop having reached the mandatory retirement age a year earlier.

In 2006, it was reported in Buffalo Business First that Mansell had not been forthright with the public or his superiors about the debt experienced within the Diocese. One individual was quoted in the same Buffalo Business First article, stating that Mansell was unable to see the reality of the situation. While Mansell did not oversee any church closures during his leadership in Buffalo, he lauded praises and support for the Diocese when it was in decline. Bishop Edward Kmiec took on the role as Bishop of Buffalo after Mansell, faced with more than $3 million in debt, a declining Catholic population, decreased viability for keeping many schools and churches open. Pope John Paul II promoted Mansell to the fourth Archbishop of Hartford, Connecticut, on October 20, 2003, he was installed on December 18 of that same year.

Mansell made a statement regarding the settlement. Of the settlement of the sexual abuse case regarding the 14 priests in the Archdiocese, Mansell is quoted in a New York Times article by William Yardley, stating: part of a healing process for the persons whose lives have been harmed by the evil of sexual abuse and for the Church itself.

In most countries students graduate at age 18; some countries have a thirteenth grade. Twelfth grade is the last year of high school. In Australia, the twelfth grade is referred to as Year 12. In New South Wales, students are 16 or 17 years old when they enter Year 12 and 17–18 years during graduation. A majority of students in Year 12 work towards getting an ATAR or OP, which will allow them access to courses at university. In South Australia, this is achieved by completing the SACE.

Schools choose the design and writing which are printed or stitched onto the jersey.
Sometimes the last two digits of the year they are graduating are printed on the back along with a personalised nickname. The front may show the school emblem and the student's name, stitched in. Many schools conduct end of year "formals", they are held from any time between graduation in September to November. Australian private schools conduct Year 12 balls in January or February of Year 12 instead of an end of year formal. In Belgium, the 12th grade is called 6de middelbaar or laatste jaar in Dutch, rétho or 6e année in French. In the General Education, this year guides and prepares students for their first year in University by recalling everything learned during the past six years of secondary school. In the Skills Education, this year prepares the students for the professional life with an Intership in the chosen domain. In Brazil, the 12th grade is called terceiro ano do ensino médio informally called terceiro colegial, meaning third grade of high school, it is attended by 17–18 years old students.
During this grade, most students apply to what is called Exame Nacional do Ensino Médio, the Brazilian equivalent of the SATs in the US, vestibular, the individual entrance examination particular to each university. As in many countries, Grade 12 students attend Graduation, which involves a formal official ceremony, a party where students and friends are invited and another party just for the students.

Ontario had Grade 13, renamed Ontario Academic Credit, before being phased out, leaving Grade 12 as the final year. Grades 12 and 13 were similar to sixth form in England. Quebec is the lone province that does not have Grade 12. Thus, when a student is in Grade 12 in Ontario, for instance, the student in Quebec is in his first year of college. Newfoundland and Labrador did not introduce Grade 12 until 1983. In Denmark, the twelfth grade is the 3rd G, the final year of secondary school. G is equivalent to gymnasium; this is not compulsory. Students are 18-19 or older when they finish secondary school; the age of graduation is caused by the fact that Danish children first start school at 6. The reason that many students will be at the age of 20 when they graduate is because some people choose to have one-year gap between the 9th grade and gymnasium's 1st G, where students go to special art- or sport-oriented boarding schools or become exchange students all over the world; this is optional though. The twelfth grade is the third and last year of High School or secondary school The students graduate from High School the year they turn 19.
The twelfth grade is shorter than the previous ones because the twelfth graders lessons end in February and they go on to take their final exams shortly afterwards. Compulsory education ends after the ninth grade, so the upper grades are optional; the equivalent grade in this country is Terminale, it is the third and last year of lycée, equivalent to High-School, upon completion of which students sit for a test, the Baccalauréat. French-language schools that teach the French government curriculum use the same system of grades as their counterparts in France; this is not compulsory, as education is only

Hemingway moved to Italy in 1983, where he pursued a writing and translating career, his articles have appeared in several Italian newspapers such as l'Unità and Libero, in American magazines and literary journals. Hemingway is working on a collection of short stories; as revealed in his memoir, Strange Tribe, Hemingway had a difficult childhood. His father suffered from bipolar disorder and his mother, Alice Thomas, is schizophrenic. Hemingway spent his early years being shuffled from one home to another, dealing with his dysfunctional family, he went to study history and Italian at U. C. L. A. and after graduating moved to Italy, as a way of distancing himself from his troubled family background. One of the unresolved questions for him was how his father, a cross-dresser and transsexual, could fit with the image that the public has of his grandfather as an icon of male masculinity.
After leaving Italy and spending a year in Spain and three months in the Medoc in France, Hemingway now lives with his wife and his daughter Jacqueline in Montreal, Canada.
