WASHINGTON – The Supreme Court struggled Wednesday over how much justice is enough for foreign terrorism suspects held at Guantanamo Bay, with the Bush administration resisting pleas for prompt court hearings. Even if the court rules quickly and decisively for the detainees, the legal fight could still be around when a new president takes office in 13 months. Most questions from the justices seemed to accept that the 305 men held at the U.S. naval base in Cuba, many for nearly six years, have some rights to challenge their detention. Instead, the key question that emerged Wednesday was whether the limited court review created by the Bush administration and Congress in response to earlier Supreme Court rulings for the detainees is good enough. The court has twice ruled that people held there without charges can go into civilian courts to seek their freedom. Each time, the administration and Congress, then controlled by Republicans, has changed the law to try to close the courthouse doors to the detainees. Clement, in his written argument, said foreigners captured and held outside the United States “have no constitutional rights to petition our courts for a writ of habeas corpus.” Seth Waxman, the detainees’ lawyer, said the review process is “structurally flawed” and pleaded for prompt hearings for his clients. Detainees can’t introduce evidence of their innocence and have no right to a lawyer, Waxman said. The Washington appeals court “has already said it will not hear any new evidence,” he said.160Want local news?Sign up for the Localist and stay informed Something went wrong.

Justice Stephen Breyer tried to capture the inadequacy of the review process when he spoke of a detainee who, after six years in jail, may want to argue that the Constitution says he must be charged or released. “I don’t see anything,” Breyer said, “that permits me to make that argument. So I’m asking you: Where can you make that argument?” Solicitor General Paul Clement, the Bush administration’s top Supreme Court lawyer, replied, “I’m not sure that he could make that argument.” Breyer said: “Exactly.” The administration opened the detention facility at Guantanamo Bay shortly after the Sept. 11, 2001, terrorist attacks to hold enemy combatants, people suspected of ties to al-Qaida or the Taliban.
Fancy doing something a lot different for charity tomorrow night?You don’t have to jump out of a plane or shave your armpits.All you have to do is to turn up in your pyjamas and go for a midnight walk! This is the 2nd midnight madness walk, organised by the Sean O’Hare Unit in Stranorlar.The idea of the walk is a fun fundraiser, walking around the Twin Towns at midnight in optional pyjamas, followed by hot chocolate and cookies afterwards.Last year over 60 people braved the night, dressed in pyjamas, the St Mary’s ladies team walked in their gaelic gear, and it was a good night.McElhinneys have sponsored the event this year, so there’s a t-shirt for all finishers, with a draw as well for entrants. The comfort fund is used to help service users have a holiday, take day trips, and any other treats.The walk takes place at 12 midnight this Friday the 13th of July (fingers crossed) at Ard Greine Court, Stranorlar, and is open to all, young and old. Adults pay €10 while children go free.The walk is being started by Michael Gallagher, or Mickey the Post, the famous Glenfin weatherman, and entrants are advised to come early for a special warm-up session!

That would easily eclipse Tom Cruise’s latest offering, Paramount’s “Mission: Impossible III,” which fell well below expectation with $48 million on its opening weekend earlier this month. “Da Vinci’s” box office take was notable in a shaky Hollywood market but far from record-setting. Twenty-nine films have had single-day receipts that exceeded $30 million. The record for the biggest opening day, $50 million, is held by last year’s “Star Wars: Episode III – Revenge of the Sith.” 160Want local news?Sign up for the Localist and stay informed Something went wrong. Please try again.subscribeCongratulations! You’re all set! “The Da Vinci Code” banked an estimated $29 million at the box office on its first day in theaters, an industry official said Saturday, positioning the film to turn in the strongest opening weekend for any movie this year. Preliminary results showed that the movie, based on a runaway best-seller and starring multiple-Oscar winner Tom Hanks, appealed to moviegoers despite lackluster reviews. The Columbia Pictures movie opened in 3,735 theaters in the U.S. and grossed a respectable average of $7,764 per screen. “This is the first big film of the summer to exceed box office expectations,” said Paul Dergarabedian, president of Exhibitor Relations Co. Inc., which tracks box office receipts.

Raiders linebacker Vontaze Burfict, whose career is littered with fines and suspensions, has been suspended for the rest of the season for an illegal hit on Colts tight end Jack Doyle Sunday.The NFL handed down the season-long suspension to the Raiders’ defensive captain after examining his second-quarter hit during Oakland’s 31-24 win Sunday, for “repeated violations of unnecessary roughness rules,” the league wrote in announcing its decision. ESPN first reported Burfict’s impending …
Earlier this week Microsoft announced the release of 20,000 lines of device driver code to the Linux community. The code is meant to enhance Linux performance when virtualized on Windows Server 2008 Hyper-V or R2 Hyper-V. Essentially it is aimed at server resource efficiency and reducing the costs associated with managing a company’s IT infrastructure. Nevertheless, as revealed by Vyatta engineer Stephen Hemminger, the release may have been a legal requirement as Microsoft’s code was originally in violation of the GNU General Public License. Hemminger’s claims that until recently, the device driver code made use of both open and closed source parts – something clearly forbidden by the GPL. Under this license all software and derivative works must be released under the same open source license. It appears Microsoft may have been forced to release the code due to legal pressures. Nevertheless, omitting any reference to legal issues, Microsoft spokesperson Sam Ramji made the statement on the Linux release, “Our strategy is to enhance interoperability between the Windows platform and many open source technologies, which includes Linux, is to provide the choices our customers are asking for.” For now, the code has not yet been submitted to the Linux kernel and the community will most definitely look at it with a fine tooth comb. The Linux community’s backlash against Microsoft is somewhat justified. In 2001, Microsoft CEO Steve Ballmer spoke to the Chicago Sun-Times and likened Linux to a cancer. He said, “Open source is not available to commercial companies. The way the license is written, if you use any open-source software, you have to make the rest of your software open source… Linux is not in the public domain. Linux is a cancer that attaches itself in an intellectual property sense to everything it touches. That’s the way that the license works.”Nevertheless, whether for legal purposes or business purposes, it appears that Microsoft is wholly ready to release the isolated device driver code to the open source community. The code would directly benefit the company in expanding Microsoft’s market share amongst administrators running Linux. The granddaddy of Linux, Linus Torvalds has not yet looked at the code; however he made the statement to Linux Magazine, “We all “scratch our own itches”. It’s why I started Linux, it’s why I started git, and it’s why I am still involved…Complaining about the fact that Microsoft picked a selfish area to work on is just silly. Of course they picked an area that helps them. That’s the point of open source – the ability to make the code better for your particular needs, whoever the ‘your’ in question happens to be.”UPDATE: In response to Stephen Hemminger’s accusations, Microsoft spokesperson Sam Ramji made the following statement to Port 25, “Microsoft’s decision was not based on any perceived obligations tied to the GPLv2 license. For business reasons and for customers, we determined it was beneficial to release the drivers to the kernel community under the GPLv2 license through a process that involved working closely with Greg Kroah-Hartman, who helped us understand the community norms and licensing options surrounding the drivers.” Too see the full statement, visit Port 25. dana oshiro A Web Developer’s New Best Friend is the AI Wai… Related Posts 8 Best WordPress Hosting Solutions on the Market Top Reasons to Go With Managed WordPress Hosting Why Tech Companies Need Simpler Terms of Servic… Tags:#Microsoft#web
