The Pennsylvania Society
Date(s) Second weekend in December
Frequency annual
Location(s) New York City
Inaugurated 1899

The Pennsylvania Society is an annual weekend retreat for Pennsylvania’s politicians and business leaders held in New York City. It began during the late 19th century as a meeting of Pennsylvanians living in New York City who gathered annually beginning in 1899 to discuss events in their home state. As the first few meetings developed into an annual event, it morphed into weekend-long retreat where political networking and fundraising took place in New York’s finest clubs, restaurants, and hotels. The main event of the weekend is the “Pennsylvania Society Dinner,” which is sponsored by “The Pennsylvania Society,” a nonprofit corporation. In recent years the receptions hosted by lobbyists, political committees, and corporations have taken on increased importance.

It has been criticized because of its image as a stereotypical “smoke-filled room” where lobby groups gain

Laws of India refers to the system of law across the Indian nation. India maintains a hybrid legal system with a mixture of civil, common law and customary, Islamic ethics, or religious law within the legal framework inherited from the colonial era and various legislation first introduced by the British are still in effect in modified forms today. Since the drafting of the Indian Constitution, Indian laws also adhere to the United Nations guidelines on human rights law and the environmental law.

Indian personal law is fairly complex, with each religion adhering to its own specific laws. In most states, registering of marriages and divorces is not compulsory. Separate laws govern Hindus including Sikhs, Jain’s and Buddhist, Muslims, Christians, and followers of other religions. The exception to this

Political system of India

The politics of India works within the framework of the country’s constitution. India is a federal parliamentary democratic republic in which the President of India is the head of state and the Prime Minister of India is the head of government. India follows the dual polity system, i.e. a double government (federal in nature) that consists of the central authority at the centre and states at the periphery. The constitution defines the organisational powers and limitations of both central and state governments, and it is well recognised, rigid and considered supreme; i.e. the laws of the nation must confirm to it.

There is a provision for a bicameral legislature consisting of an upper house, the Rajya Sabha (Council of States), which represents the states of the Indian federation, and a lower house, the Lok Sabha (House of the People), which represents the people of India as

Azil politic – Wikipedia

Azilul politic reprezintă acordarea de către un stat a dreptului de intrare și de ședere pe teritoriul său a unei persoane străine, persecutate în țara sa pentru convingerile politice[1], respectiv statutul pe care îl poate primi un cetățean străin care riscă în țara sa un tratament discriminatoriu sau chiar inuman datorat convingerilor politice[2].

Noțiunea de azil politic mai poate fi definită ca fiind o instituție juridică de drept internațional, menită să asigure respectarea drepturilor fundamentale ale omului, asigurându-i condițiile legale de a se așeza pe teritoriul altui stat și de a beneficia de drepturi și obligații, conform normelor interne ale acelui stat, atunci când nu se poate bucura de aceste drepturi în țara sa de origine sau în țara de reședință, datorită persecuțiilor cu caracter politic la care este supus.[3]

Dreptul la azil a fost fixat pentru prima dată în Constituția Franței din anul 1793,

Executive power is vested with the national cabinet which is headed by the prime minister, who works coherently along with the bicameral parliament and the judicature.[1] Stipulations set by the constitution provide a delicate check and balance of sharing powers between executive, legislative, and judicial branches of the government.[2]

The head of state is the president who is elected by the electoral college for a five-year term. The president was a significant authority until the 18th amendment, passed in 2010, stripped the presidency of its major powers. Since

Poe’s law – Wikipedia

Confusion of parody and sincere expression

Poe’s law is an adage of Internet culture stating that, without a clear indicator of the author’s intent, it is impossible to create a parody of extreme views so obviously exaggerated that it cannot be mistaken by some readers for a sincere expression of the views being parodied.[1][2][3] The original statement, by Nathan Poe, read:[1]

Without a winking smiley or other blatant display of humor, it is utterly impossible to parody a Creationist in such a way that someone won’t mistake for the genuine article.

Poe’s law is based on a comment written by Nathan Poe in 2005 on, an Internet forum on Christianity. The post was made during a debate on creationism, where a previous poster had remarked to another user: “Good thing you included the winky. Otherwise people might think you are serious”.[4] Poe then replied,
