Criminal Justice and Courts Act 2015

The Criminal Justice and Courts Act 2015 is an Act of the Parliament of the United Kingdom which made a number of changes to the criminal justice system. It was introduced to the House of Commons on 5 February 2014 by Lord Chancellor Chris Grayling and received Royal Assent on 12 February 2015; the act's provisions include the following: Imposing the payment of a charge of up to £600 on those convicted of a criminal offence at the point of conviction. Making jury misconduct a specific criminal offence with a penalty of up to two years in prison. Four new misconduct laws were included to prevent jurors conducting any research into details of a case, sharing details of the research with other jurors, disclosing details of juror deliberation, "engaging in other prohibited conduct" such as using evidence not put before the court to decide a case; these are offences under the Contempt of Court Act 1981. Raising the maximum age of jurors to 75. Amending the extreme pornography law to ban the possession of pornographic images depicting acts of rape.

Introducing a new offence of being "unlawfully at large" with a punishment of up to two years in prison for criminals who go on the run while serving the non-custodial element of their sentence. Abolishing automatic early release for those convicted of serious terrorism charges or child rape. Ending police cautions for child pornography offences or supplying class A drugs as well as in those cases where an offender has been cautioned or convicted for a similar offence in the previous two years. Allowing single magistrates to preside over "low-level regulatory cases"; this provision allows certain offences to be dealt with by a single magistrate outside the courtroom. Creating "secure colleges", a new form of secure educational establishment for young offenders; the first "pathfinder secure college" is expected to open in the East Midlands in 2017. Restricting the judicial review process to specialist courts working to fixed timetables where only individuals or groups with a financial interest in a case can bring a challenge rather than general issue-based campaigning groups.

Making a whole life order the starting point for murder in the case of the murder of a police or prison officer in the course of their duties. The March 2014 amendment modified the Malicious Communications Act 1988 and Section 127 of the Communications Act 2003; the maximum length of custodial sentencing for online harassment was increased from six months to two years, magistrates gained the power to pass cases on to the Crown Court. The October 2014 amendment created a specific offence of distributing a private sexual image of someone without their consent and with the intention of causing them distress; the maximum custodial sentence is two years. In April 2014 the assistant director of the British Board of Film Classification told a Parliamentary Bill Committee that the Clause 16 proposal to criminalise rape pornography would not result in the blocking of scenes of sexual imagery that bear no relation to reality. In June 2014 the parliamentary Joint Committee on Human Rights claimed that the bill's proposals to allow staff in "secure colleges" to use "reasonable force where necessary to ensure good order and discipline" would contravene the European Convention on Human Rights.

Criminal Justice and Immigration Act 2008 Backlash


A nemeton was a sacred space of ancient Celtic religion. Nemeta appear to have been situated in natural areas, and, as they utilized trees, they are interpreted as sacred groves. However, other evidence suggests that the word implied a wider variety of ritual spaces, such as shrines and temples. Evidence for nemeta consists chiefly of inscriptions and toponymy or place-names, which occur all across the Celtic world. Toponyms related to the word nemeton occur as far west as Galicia in the Iberian peninsula, as far north as Scotland, as far east as central Turkey; the word is related to the name of the Nemetes tribe living by the Rhine between the Palatinate and Lake Constance in what is now Germany, their goddess Nemetona. Pliny and Lucan wrote that druids did not meet in stone temples or other constructions, but in sacred groves of trees. In his Pharsalia Lucan described such a grove near Massilia in dramatic terms more designed to evoke a shiver of delicious horror among his Roman hearers than meant as proper natural history: no bird nested in the nemeton, nor did any animal lurk nearby.

Altars stood in its midst, the images of the gods. Every tree was stained with sacrificial blood; the earth groaned, dead yews revived. The people feared to approach the grove, the priest would not walk there at midday or midnight lest he should meet its divine guardian. Descriptions of such sites have been found all across the Celtic world. Attested examples include Nemetobriga near Ourense in northwestern Spain, Drunemeton in Galatia, at Medionemeton near the Antonine Wall in what is now Scotland and in mid-Devon there are at least ten Nymet and Nymph place-names in the area surrounding the village of Bow. Mars Lucetius and Nemetona appear as a divine couple in Roman-era inscriptions. At the Romano-British site in Bath, a dedication was made to Mars Loucetius and Nemetona by a pilgrim who had come from the continental Treveri of Gallia Belgica to seek healing. A Mars Rigonemetis appears in the context of Roman Imperial cult in a dedication discovered at Nettleham in 1961, he may have been a god belonging to the tribe of the Corieltauvi.

A nemeton is in the Roman placename Vernemeton, in Roman Aquae Arnemetiae, in the 1194 reference to Nametwihc, "Sanctuary-Town,". In Scotland, nemeton place-names are quite frequent, as they are in Devon, where they appear in numerous place-names containing Nymet or Nympton, have been identified with the name Nemetostatio in the Ravenna Cosmography near the site of modern-day North Tawton. A well known nemeton site is in the Névet forest near Locronan in Brittany. Gournay-sur-Aronde, in the Oise department of France houses the remains of a nemeton. Echoes of the word nemeton survive in many French place-names such as Novionemetum that evolved to Nonant, Nonant-le-Pin, etc. *Nemeto-pons, with Latin pons'bridge': Nampont and Nemetodurum'door' or'forum of the temple': Nanterre. In Paris, a case has been made for "Namet" in a line of doggerel of about 1270, as the ancient name for the Quartier du Temple on the Right Bank. In Ireland, there was another on Sliabh Fhuait. Nemetons existed as far east as the Gaulish region of Galatia in Anatolia, where Strabo records the name of the meeting-place of the council of the Galatians as Drunemeton.

A nemeton had been identified near the city of Beja. Lucus and nemus, ancient Roman equivalents The Irish mythological figure Nemed Dowden, Ken.

The site of their antenna was He'eia, NOT the site of Station HYPO itself. Station HYPO got its name from the phoenetic for the letter "H", because of He'eia where its antenna was sited Heʻeia Fishpond, the largest remaining fishpond on OʻahuHeʻeia Kea is a community and small, undeveloped valley separated from Heʻeia by Heʻeia Marsh and Kealohi Point.

It's Just About Time

"It's Just About Time" is a song recorded by Johnny Cash. It was written for him by Jack Clement; the song was recorded by Cash in July 1958 during his final sessions for Sun Records. And released as a single in November. "It's Just About Time" is a solid Jack Clement ballad with a honky-tonk flavor. Just about the time the singer thinks it's over for him and his careless love, he starts missing her. Sun rush-released this song as a single, hot on the heels of Johnny's second Columbia single, "Don't Take Your Guns to Town." Despite all the attention surrounding that Columbia single, "It's Just About Time" made it to number 30 on the country chart and number 47 pop. Yet, Peter Lowry notes that "compared to recent singles this could be seen as a flop chartwise, with a stay of just one week in the charts at the start of 1959."The flip side, "I Just Thought You'd Like to Know," reached number 85 on the Billboard Hot 100 and didn't enter the country chart at all
