In 1993, with the passage of the Brady Law, Congress enacted a dual standard for gun purchases -- one for licensed gun stores and a separate standard for unlicensed sellers. The practical impact: Sales at gun stores require background checks (BC); sales at gun shows by unlicensed sellers do not. In 1999, Congress debated legislation to require criminal BC at gun shows. But scant info. was known about how often criminals obtained guns from gun shows. During the debate, legislators could only guess how long most BC took to complete under the Nat. Instant Check System, and even some basic questions such as whether BC would put gun shows out of bus. were debated with little info. This report seeks to answer those questions. Illustrations.

With eviction looming, St. Ives searches for a big payday and a rare book. Philip St. Ives has no love for New York's drafty, broken-down Adelphi Hotel, but he is in no mood to be evicted from it. His cash dwindling, he is happy to learn about a job that calls for his specific talents as a mediator between thieves and their victims. It sounds like the set-up to a bad joke: A thief, an insurance salesman, and the Library of Congress call Philip's lawyer to ask about a stolen copy of Pliny's Historia Naturalis. To find it, Philip will risk becoming history himself. The book was stolen on its way from the Library of Congress to California, and the detective guarding it vanished as well. Mired in snow-choked Washington, DC, St. Ives must arrange for a pair of ransoms to avoid becoming a victim of book collectors who value a nice first edition over an investigator's life. Review quotes. "America's best storyteller." - New York Times Book Review. "Ross Thomas is without peer in American suspense." - Los Angeles Times. "What Elmore Leonard does for crime in the streets, Ross Thomas does for crime in the suites." - The Village Voice. Biographical note. The winner of the inaugural Gumshoe Lifetime Achievement Award, Ross Thomas (1926-1995) was a prolific author whose political thrillers drew praise for their blend of wit and suspense. Born in Oklahoma City, Thomas grew up during the Great Depression, and served in the Philippines during World War II. After the war, he worked as a foreign correspondent, public relations official, and political strategist before publishing his first novel, "The Cold War Swap" (1967), based on his experience working in Bonn, Germany. The novel was a hit, winning Thomas as an Edgar Award for Best First Novel and establishing the characters Mac McCorkle and Mike Padillo. Thomas followed it up with three more novels about McCorkle and Padillo, the last of which was published in 1990. He wrote nearly a book a year for twenty-five years, occasionally under the pen name Oliver Bleeck, and won the Edgar Award for Best Novel with "Briarpatch" (1984). Thomas died of lung cancer in California in 1995, a year after publishing his final novel, "Ah, Treachery!"

Tap into your "sixth sense" and become a better, more confident tarot reader. Most all tarot books present card-by-card interpretations as well as an instruction on how to read spreads. This book takes the next logical step inward by presenting the art of reading in a workbook format, and helps you learn to interpret the cards intuitively. The book falls into two parts. The first part concerns learning about the cards, and includes exercises for each card that teaches you to trust your interpretation of the card. The second part helps you develop that ability, a skill that Reed calls “intuition.” All the exercises, stories, card meanings, and techniques really serve one purpose: to go beyond learning Tarot to living it. It’s not enough to memorize the meanings of the cards, and you can’t do a reading with a workbook at your side forever. In order to deliver a meaningful, accurate tarot reading, you need to hone your intuition. Without a comfortable connection to your sixth sense, the tarot readings lack finesse and becomes nothing more than cookie-cutter interpretations. When you’re fluent in your intuition, you can develop better readings and unique interpretations for each person. In this book, Reed teaches by example. She presents the basics of intuitive tarot reading—reading without any questions, any backstory, anything to go on. This book is filled with exercises to hone your intuition and sharpen your interpretation skills.

"Torture is prohibited under international law.

"Torture is prohibited under international law. No exceptions are allowed. Yet the governments of France, Germany and the United Kingdom are engaged in ongoing cooperation with foreign intelligence services in countries that routinely use torture. These European governments use foreign torture information for intelligence and policing purposes. And weak rules on the use of such material as evidence mean that it can end up as part of legal proceedings. Intelligence cooperation is important to countering terrorism. But regular receipt of, and reliance on, foreign torture information implicitly validates the use of unlawful methods to acquire information. The practice of using such information and public statements affirming the legitimacy of doing so risks creating a market for torture intelligence. It violates the positive obligation under international law to prevent and punish torture and can amount to complicity in such abuse. And using torture as evidence is a clear breach of the global torture ban. France, Germany and the UK can engage in necessary intelligence cooperation without undermining the global torture ban. To do so, they must make genuine inquiries with sending countries to determine whether torture was used to obtain it and what steps the authorities have taken to hold to account those responsible for that abuse. Cooperation should be suspended in particular cases where there are grounds to believe torture or ill-treatment were used to obtain shared information. There is also a need for tighter parliamentary oversight of intelligence cooperation, and stronger rules to prevent torture material from entering the judicial process. Europe has been forced to confront its complicity in US counterterrorism abuses, including hosting secret detention sites and facilitating extraordinary renditions. It is time for France, Germany and the UK to take responsibility for their role in overseas abuse, and to ensure that their intelligence cooperation does not perpetuate it."--Page 4 of cover.

This monograph offers a comprehensive account of the L1-acquisition and use of yes-no questions in English from a usage-based, construction grammar perspective. On the basis of the BNC and a high-density, longitudinal CHILDES corpus, the book explores two issues which have largely been neglected in previous research: 1. the prevalence of non-canonical questions (such as elliptical and declarative questions) in adult-to-adult as well as child(-directed) speech and the L1-acquisition of these structures. 2. The discourse-functional properties of both canonical and non-canonical yes-no questions, especially with regard to their influence on the acquisition process.
