He also abandoned an argument that the Department of Homeland Security has been making for nearly a decade. Since 2009, DHS has recognized in its own legal briefs that women unable to leave their domestic relationships, in some societies and in some circumstances, are a particular social group deserving protection. Even in the case the attorney general vacated last week, DHS conceded that the group proposed was a viable particular social group under asylum law..
It truly breaks my heart to see so little coverage on Waveland when they were the most severly hit. The courage and fortatude that everyone we know there continues to shine while facing so much beauracy and trying to rebuild. Yes, they lost everything but they are picking up the pieces and putting it all back together.
Some are ignorant of this aspect of the Gita’s philosophy while some others are so attached to the idea of dharma that they cannot accept the exhortation to discard all dharma. In the process, they often twist the meaning of the words so that it suits their line of argument. For example, one school of thought argues that the word “dharman” in the verse 18:66 should actually be understood as “karman” meaning that Krishna is exhorting Arjuna not to discard dharma, but rather karma!

And you’re looking across at schools probably putting on a little pressure as well because you’ve got to get it done early. If you’re recruited as one of the top three point guards in the country, they’re putting pressure on all three of you that if one of the other two commits, that’s who they’re going with. That’s the nature of the business right now.”.
Especially the first one is related strongly to the issue of what today in American parlance is described as diversity for it is easy to forget for people that the Ottomans were a rather important force back in 16th century Europe with their whole array of diverse troops and people expanding as far as Hungary and holding power over vast swaths of Southeastern and Central Europe the reason why these territories and the Ottomans are forgotten are also a matter of what Said called Orientalism and Todorova extended to Balkanism. So, while I leave the exact in depth details to our Medievalists and Ottomanists, people have rightly pointed to the Ottomans, a whole variety of art and histories, and a wholly different understanding of what constitutes “race” in medieval times. Also, historians have nitpicked Warhorse for a variety of their claims about the Middle Ages in Bohemia in general..
