China University of Political Science and Law is a university in Beijing, People's Republic of China. Its law school is considered one of the best in China. In 2009 and 2012, the two most recent report year, The Ministry of Education rated CUPL as having the second best graduate education among the law schools in China. CUPL has two campuses, one in Haidian, which is the original campus of the university, and the other located in Changping, Beijing. The university's Haidian campus now hosts postgraduate students only, while undergraduates study at a much larger campus in Changping District, in the outer suburbs of Beijing. It is the largest institute in the world for legal education.At present, CUPL comprises 12 schools, with 21,325 students and more than 1,400 faculty members, of whom 342 are professors and associate professors. CUPL maintains a broad international exchange program, with approximately 600 foreign students from 14 countries. Wikipedia.

FRAME, a 4-year multidisciplinary project, represents a consortium of 19 internationally recognized and globally networked human rights institutes from across Europe and strategic regions around the world. Through FRAME, more than 100 leading researchers and practitioners - with a strong gender balance - aim to provide the necessary building blocks for a coherent EU human rights policy comprised of: (i) a sound knowledge base taking account of the factors, concepts, institutions and instruments underlying human rights protection; (ii) appraisal of the EUs full potential to contribute to global human rights governance through its relationship with multiple actors and its manifold policies; and (iii) a set of indicators, tools and policy proposals geared to strengthen human rights implementation in EU policy-making. Through 4 research clusters, FRAME offers creative solutions to enhance the coherence and effectiveness of EU human rights policy. Cluster 1: Factors examines the key factors facilitating or hindering human rights protection, the concepts of human rights, democracy and the rule of law and the human rights protection institutions and instruments at global, regional and national level. Cluster 2: Actors addresses the EUs human rights engagement with the UN, regional multilateral organizations, regional and strategic partnerships with third countries and non-state actors, as well as the relationship between EU institutions and the Member States. Cluster 3: Policies hones the fostering of human rights in EU policies on development and trade, human rights violations in conflicts, freedom, security and justice and external human rights and democratization action. Cluster 4: Tools develops indicators, tools and policy proposals, including policy benchmarking, to monitor and improve the effectiveness of EU human rights policy. FRAMEs vital impact on human rights research, education and policy innovation will continue beyond the projects lifetime.

To investigate the genetic polymorphisms of 17 Y-chromosomal short tandem repeats (Y-STR) loci in Shanxi Han population and to explore their forensic application values and genetic relationship with neighboring populations, 17 Y-STR in 222 unrelated healthy Shanxi Han individuals were amplified with Y-filerTM System, and the PCR products were detected with 3130 Genetic Aanalyzer. The allele frequencies and haplotype diversity were calculated. Y-STR data of another 13 populations were collected from publications. Cluster analysis and phylogenic trees were applied to show the genetic distance among the populations. As a result, a total of 219 haplotypes were identified, and the observed haplotypes diversity value was 0.9999. The gene diversity values (GD) for each locus ranged from 0.3894 (DYS391) to 0.9755 (DYS385a/b). Comparing with 13 populations, the genetic distance between Shanxi and Jihei Han populations was the smallest (0.0001), while the genetic distance between Shanxi and Taiwan population was the largest (0.0152). The phylogenetic tree was similar to the results of clustering analysis. Multiplex detection of the 17 Y-STR loci revealed a highly polymorphic genetic distribution, which would be very powerful for establishing a Y-STR database, for population genetics and forensic practice.

The 2012 Nicaragua v. Colombia Case is the second instance where the International Court of Justice has employed the standard method in maritime delimitation since the 2009 Black Sea Case. The "standard method" involves three stages with the construction of a provisional equidistance line as the core of the methodology. There is no legal basis under the UN Convention on the Law of the Sea or customary law for the a priori position given to an equidistance line. Moreover, questions can be raised about the Court's operation at the second stage, which should consist of an adjustment or shifting of the provisional line rather than replacing it. Finally, the use of the disproportionality test as the touchstone for equity of the delimitation line is doubtful. © 2013 Copyright Taylor and Francis Group, LLC. Source

To investigate the genetic polymorphisms of 17 Y-chromosomal short tandem repeats(Y-STR) loci in She ethnic population from Fujian province, and to evaluate their forensic application values and genetic relationship with other 11 populations, 152 unrelated male individuals of She ethnic population in Fujian were used to determine the distribution of allele frequencies and haplotypes by using Y-filerTM System. Cluster analysis and phylogenic trees were applied to show the genetic distance among the populations. As a result, 50 haplotypes were found in DYS385a/b loci, and 3-11 alleles were found in the rest 15 Y-STR loci. The GD value was from 0.4037(DYS391) to 0. 9725(DYS385a/b). This study has also revealed "off-ladder" alleles at several Y-loci, namely DYS448, DYS393, DYS458 and DYS635, and several occurrences of duplications at the DYS385a/b, DYS19 and DYS390 loci. One hundred and forty-four haplotypes were found in 17 Y-STR loci, of which 138 were unique, 5 were found in 2 individuals, 1 was found in 4 individuals, and the observed haplotypes diversity value was 0.9990. Comparing with 11 populations, the genetic distance between She ethnic and Han population in Zhejiang was the smallest (0.0042), while it was the largest between She ethnic and Tibet ethnic population (0.2380). Cluster analysis and phylogenetic tree both demonstrated that genetic distance between She ethnic and several south Han populations is closer than between She ethnic and non-Han populations. Multiplex detection of the 17 Y-STR loci revealed a highly polymorphic genetic distribution, which would be very powerful for establishing a Y-STR database, for population genetics and forensic practice.

Left ventricular noncompaction of the myocardium is a rare genetic cardiac disease characterized by a prominent meshwork and deep intertrabecular recesses of the left ventricle. The condition has frequently been misdiagnosed as other cardiomyopathies. Sudden deaths due to the disease are rarely reported in the literature of forensic sciences. We report 2 cases of sudden death due to undiagnosed left ventricular noncompaction. One was a 30-year-old man who suddenly collapsed while eating breakfast. He was pronounced dead on arrival at the hospital. The other 24-year-old man had a witness collapse at home. Despite immediate resuscitation, he expired 11 hours after hospitalization. Postmortem examination revealed that both patients died of left ventricular noncompaction. The key pathologic findings are described. Additionally, the literature is reviewed, and the incidence, clinical and pathophysiologic presentation, pathogenesis, and diagnostic criteria for the left ventricular noncompaction are discussed.
