“This case affirms the tribe’s federal rights and federal recognition, which have been a matter of debate between the tribe and state for far too long,” said Jack Killoy, a lawyer for the Narragansett Indian Tribe.Attorney General Patrick Lynch plans an appeal to the US Supreme Court, said his spokesman, Michael Healey.At question is whether a 31 acre lot in Charlestown purchased by the Narragansett tribe should be subject to Rhode Island law, including a prohibition on casino gambling, or whether the parcel should be governed by tribal and federal law.The dispute began in 1991 when the Narragansett tribe purchased the land to build a housing complex for the elderly, which remains incomplete. Acting on the tribe’s request, the US Department of the Interior moved to take the land into federal trust, which would place it largely under tribal and federal control. His lawyers said the federal government could not set up a trust because the Narragansett tribe wasn’t recognized until 49 years after the 1934 law took effect.Judge Sandra Lynch said the state’s interpretation was too narrow because the 1934 law attempted to remedy past wrongs and strengthen tribes.”Based on this view, it would make no sense to distinguish among tribes based on the happenstance of their federal recognition in 1934,” she wrote in the majority opinion.It’s unclear how much tribal land could be cast into legal uncertainty if the state prevails.
But ESA President and CEO Mike Gallagher denied any connection between video game violence and real world violence. In an interview with the technology blog Ars Technica, Gallagher said that when it comes to the issue of “violence in our country and gun violence in video games . This industry does not cause any of the violence that you see in society.” And at this time there isn’t any evidence that links the behavior of the Orlando shooter to violent video games..
Yesterday made a year since I’ve been back into lifting seriously after quitting for 3 years. I went to the gym and crushed hamstrings, calves, biceps and traps, felt awesome especially because I had a sick fucking pump. When I was almost done my workout I looked around the gym and spotted that VeganGains dude training in my gym as well, I didn’t even pay any attention really because I’m bigger than he is.
Had I become so narcissistic that I thought the production company and network owed me something? Surely not, I was expendable to them, finished, used up. But what about my experience? It belongs to me and nobody has the right to take it away. Unfortunately, they do.
