This article talks about an example of a “Stand Your Law” ground. This article states how the stand your ground law has significant effects on people and what it does. They actually did a research and found that just in Florida alone, the homicide percentage of after five years that this law has been active, it has tripled the amount. This is not just numbers put out there for nothing, obviously people misuse this concept and a lot of people can say not all of them deserved to die. Now, after all these homicides and deaths, States want to revise the law and refine what they have written in the law because it is clear that it isn’t working. The law was meant to stop people from breaking into houses or for the other way around as in for people to have self-defense. But all in all, this still doesn’t stop people from committing crimes. The government thought putting this law out there can slow down the rates or even stop it at some point but it is clear that with this law not refined, this will not happen the way they want it to happen. There was actually a repeal to the law in New Hampshire as the article states, but it did not work and fell short.

Viglucci, Andres. "Debate over Soccer Stadium Centers on Park Use." Miami Herald, 02 June 2014. Web. 05 June 2014. .
Back in 2000 the construction of the Miami Art Museum had to battle its way against the construction of a baseball park. City activists, leaders and politicians fought against the idea of building this park and after several discussions they won and the Museum was built. The same story is about to repeat itself with soccer player David Beckham proposing to build a new soccer stadium in the same place. Beckham’s plan is to fill an old boat slip, take part of the museum land along with a parcel that belongs to the city of Miami.
The source is the well-known Miami Herald newspaper and the article seems to be unbiased to the idea of building the stadium. The article compares the proposal to the one form 14 years ago to build the baseball park, cites several statements from the people against and also the pros that are being offered by Beckham and his group.
The article brings the two sides and compares them by siting the good and bad aspects of the plan. To some, the stadium will bring chaos, destruction of a land mark (boat slip) and disruption of the tranquillity that the museum and park represent. To others, the stadium will bring business opportunities, excitement and will fit the so claimed Miami style.

Understanding the pros and cons of “Obama Care” analysis.

In the article, about "Obama care Pros and cons understanding". They say that affordable Care Act of 2010 will have an impact with long terms ramifications for millions of people in America. The law requires all Americans have health insurance. Obama Care inquests to lower the healthcare and reduces the medical services for those who can get insurance.
For millions of American and legal residents who are not converged for health insurance, with Obama Care will get the coverage that they need by starting in 2014.
Health plans will no longer be able to be denied coverage to those people who suffer from a pre-existent condition. People with low income will received a subsidy to help them to pay health care coverage. One of the best things for the families is Obama care included our children to stay on their parent’s health insurance until the age of 26.
States are requires to set up insurance exchanges to make it easier to find the best deals on private health insurance.
On the other hand many people look some disadvantages of the “ObamaCare.” For example: High drug costs. The drugs are not covered by the plan of Obama care, people have to pay that drugs for they own pocket . Some consumers will pay as much as half cost of that called “specially” drugs. In comparison consumers in private plans pay no more than the third part of those costs.

This column speaks about laws restricting access to firearms for people with mental illness. When a person with mental illness commits a violent crime using a firearm it causes the public to voice their opinion to lawmakers to implement new restrictions to keep people with mental illness from access to guns. It also discusses and provides evidence of effective and negative consequences regarding current laws and potentially new restrictions for future laws by our legislators. This source is useful because it will assist me in completing my essay regarding guns laws and mental illness. This information is reliable because it is written by Dr. Appelbaum, M.D.,who is the Elizabeth K. Dollard Professor of Psychiatry, Medicine and Law, Department of Psychiatry, Columbia University. Dr. Swanson is Professor, Department of Psychiatry and Behavioral Sciences, Duke University School of Medicine. This article gave me more insight to existing gun laws currently in place that restrict people with mental illness access to firearms. There are Supreme Court cases that will help me validate some of the research I will be citing in my paper.

"Death penalty: facts" death penalty focus. Web. May 31st, 2013
This sheet is about 10 facts on why the death penalty should be abolished. 1) executions are carried out at a staggering cost to taxpayers. The cost to execute someone very expensive. California has spent $184 million on the death penalty each year and is on track to spend $1 billion in the next five years. 2) there is no credible evidence that capital punishment deters crime. Scientific studies have consistently failed to demonstrate that executions deter people from committing crime anymore than long prison sentences. 3)innocent people have been convicted and executed. The wrongful execution of an innocent person is an injustice that can never be rectified. 4) race plays a role. 82% of studies reviewed race of the victim was found to influence the likelihood of being charged with capital murder or receiving the death penalty. 5) the death penalty is applied at random. Approx 100 people or less are sentenced to death. 6) capital punishment goes against every religion.

4. Articles, A ‘Job-Killing’ Law?, January 7.
When it comes to truth in labeling, House Republicans are getting off to a poor start with their constantly repeated references to the new health care law as "job killing". There’s little doubt that the new law will likely lead to somewhat fewer low-wage jobs. That’s mainly because of the law’s requirement that, generally, firms with more than 50 workers pay a penalty if they fail to provide health coverage for their workers. One leading health care expert, John Sheils of The Lewin Group, puts the loss at between 150,000 and 300,000 jobs, at or near the minimum wage. And Sheils says that relatively small loss would be partly offset by gains in the health care industry.

And finally this article compares other drugs and the withdrawal symptoms felt from the drug are not as mild as other hardcore drugs such as Cocaine or Heroin.
