El CarabobeƱo

El Carabobeño has been one of the most popular newspapers in the Central Region of Venezuela. The offices of the newspaper are located in Naguanagua, north of the city of Valencia in the state of Carabobo, its main competitor in the area is Notitarde. In 2016 it discontinued its print edition citing problems sourcing newsprint, it has continued online. The newspaper was founded by Eladio Alemán Sucre on 1 September 1933 under the dictatorship of Juan Vicente Gómez. Eladio Alemán Sucre was forced into exile under the dictatorship, with the newspaper working under the area's best intellectuals, until Vicente Gómez's death in 1935. In 1948, the newspaper was headquartered in the Ayacucho building and by 1955, the newspaper had begun printing in a more "standard" size after their printing press was updated. In 1976 after growing, the newspaper moved into a new building on Soubrette Avenue in central Valencia. At the new facility, El Carabobeño purchased a new electronic system for processing, one of the most advanced in Latin America at that period of time.

In 1997, a newly built headquarters for El Carabobeño in Naguanagua, a city north of Venezuela, was inaugurated by President Rafael Caldera, who called the newspaper "an example for the Latin American Journalism". The headquarters was designed by Marisol Alemán de López in a contemporary architecture, with the facility featuring an advanced electronic system, a museum on Venezuela's journalism, the original equipment used by the newspaper, two murals by Braulio Salazar as well as one auditorium and two convention halls at the Eladio Alemán Sucre Cultural Center. Following nearly 83 years of printing newspapers to the Venezuelan public, on 17 March 2016, the newspaper released its final edition of its physical newspaper, discontinuing the use of printed material. On its final front page editorial, El Carabobeño explained that the government agency that has the responsibility of distributing newsprint had not attempted to sell the necessary resources to the newspaper; the act of withholding resources from media organizations was a common practice of censorship in Venezuela under the Bolivarian government.

El Carabobeño won the National Journalism Award in 1968, 1977 and 1983 and in 2009, the Inter American Press Association awarded El Carabobeño the 2009 Excellence in Journalism Award in the category "Newspaper in Education". List of newspapers in Venezuela

Mozambique rule

The Moçambique rule, or Mozambique rule, is a common law rule in private international law. The rule renders actions relating to title in foreign land, the right to possession of foreign land, trespass to foreign land non-justiciable in common law jurisdictions, it was established in 1893 by the House of Lords decision in British South Africa Co v. Companhia de Moçambique AC 602, it is a self-imposed rule to limit jurisdiction in respect of actions relating to: Title to Foreign Land Possession to Foreign Land Damages of Trespass to Foreign LandIn Hesperides Hotels v Muftizade Lord Wilberforce referred to the ruling in Mozambique in the following terms: "Subject to exceptions hereafter mentioned, the court has no jurisdiction to entertain an action for the determination of title to, or the right to the possession of, any immovable situate out of England. Although, under section 30 of the Civil Jurisdiction and Judgments Act 1982 "the jurisdiction of any court in England and Wales or Northern Ireland to entertain proceedings for trespass to, or any other tort affecting, immovable property shall extend to cases in which the property in question is situated outside that part of the United Kingdom unless the proceedings are principally concerned with a question of the title to, or the right to possession of, that property."

This rule was subject to much criticism and became abolished by the above section. The decision in British South Africa Co v Companhia de Moçambique was based on the historical development of the circumstances in which, reasons for which, a court in England would take jurisdiction to hear any matter. In the 12th and early 13th centuries, the jury in both civil and criminal matters performed a role that resembles the modern day witness rather than as judges of fact. In particular, there was a requirement that the jury had to be drawn from the particular locality from which the cause of action had arisen; this was based on the assumption that people from that locality are acquainted with the facts in the case from their personal knowledge. Therefore, it was important for the parties to the action to specify the venue or place at which the event occurred so that the Sheriff can summon the jury from that place. Law of Henry I for instance, declared that juries from other than the venue stated were not to be permitted in any circumstances.

At the end of the 13th century or the beginning of the 14th century, due to the increasing sophistication of transactions and dispositions, this rule caused considerable inconvenience. This was so when the facts alleged occurred in one locality and in another. To resolve this problem, courts at that time began to differentiate between "local" and "transitory" actions. Local actions were one in which the facts relied on by the plaintiff had a necessary connection with a particular place. Transitory actions had no such necessary connection. In the early development of the law relating to transitory actions, the rule was loosened so that the plaintiff may specify the venue in any county he/she desired. However, this led to abuses and in the 15th century, the statutes of Richard II and Henry IV reimposed strict requirements of laying the correct venue. However, the effects of these statutes was diminished by the use of a legal fiction; this legal fiction was developed as the courts realised the advantages of taking jurisdiction over mercantile matters which might have arisen outside England.

This development led to a distinction between transitory actions. With transitory actions, venue remained only a limitation on the verbal formula by which the plaintiff might frame a cause of action. However, with local actions, the requirement of the plaintiff laying the correct venue remained; this strict distinction remained despite the fact that by the 16th century, the role of juries was changed. Juries had become triers of fact and the practice of laying sworn testimony of witnesses had become general; the juries, still had to be drawn from the county in which the venue was laid. If the matter had arisen outside England, the legal fictions employed in transitory actions were not applicable, so jury could be summoned to try the facts in issue; the matter could not be heard. For example, in Skinner v East India Co 6 St Tr 710, the House of Lords in 1666, held that actions relating to ships and trespass to the person could be determined in courts in England because they were transitory in nature.

But actions for dispossession of house and island, was not relievable in courts of England because they are local in nature. In 1873, the Judicature Act abolished r 28 of the Rules of the Court; this meant. However, this change raised some issues. In particular, R H Collins argued that the legislative change might remove the disability of the English courts in relation to local actions where the parties were domiciled in England. In the Court of Appeal in the Mozambique case, a majority took a similar view of the effect of that Act. Fry LJ considered that the issue of jurisdiction in actions relating to land outside England could be resolved in two parts: Firstly, if the matter were requiring adjudication as to title, the court could not take jurisdiction, since it would have no power to ensure the execution of its order. Secondly, if the issue related to no more than trespa

1864 Daedalus

1864 Daedalus, provisional designation 1971 FA, is a stony asteroid and near-Earth object of the Apollo group 3 kilometers in diameter. It was discovered on 24 March 1971, by Dutch–American astronomer Tom Gehrels at Palomar Observatory and named after Daedalus from Greek mythology. Daedalus is a member of the Apollo asteroids, a group of near-Earth object with an Earth-crossing orbit, it orbits the Sun in the inner main-belt at a distance of 0.6–2.4 AU once every 1 years and 9 months. Its orbit has an inclination of 22 ° with respect to the ecliptic, it has an Earth Minimum orbit intersection distance of 0.2693 AU. Daedalus is a stony asteroid, characterized as an SQ and Sr spectral type in the Tholen and SMASS taxonomy. According to the survey carried out by NASA's Wide-field Infrared Survey Explorer with its subsequent NEOWISE mission, it measures 2.7 and 3.7 kilometers in diameter and its surface has an albedo of 0.273. The Collaborative Asteroid Lightcurve Link assumes a standard albedo for stony asteroids of 0.20 and derives a diameter of 3.0 kilometers based on an absolute magnitude of 14.98.

Several rotational lightcurves of Daedalus were obtained by astronomers Tom Gehrels, Petr Pravec and Brian Warner. Lightcurve analysis gave a concurring rotation period of 8.572 hours with a high brightness variation of 0.85–1.04 magnitude, indicating a non-spheroidal shape. This minor planet was named after the Greek mythological figure Daedalus, the builder of King Minos' labyrinth, subsequently imprisoned there with his son Icarus, they escaped on wings of feathers and wax, but whereas Icarus was drowned when the wax in his wings melted, Daedalus went on to Sicily and built there a temple to Apollo. There is a lunar crater called Daedalus; the official naming citation was published by the Minor Planet Center on 20 December 1974.
