Maintenance and Repair: Stop Servient Estate from Trashing Non Exclusive Shared Easement

My question involves real estate located in the State of: Georgia We have property in south Georgia. The only way to the house is a private gravel drive alongside a neighbor's property noted as "non-exclusive easement for ingress and egress" on the deed. The entrance to the neighbor (servient estate) occurs prior to the gravel drive; in other words the servient owner does not need to traverse the drive to access their house. There are a couple more houses that have the same easement access stat...

AR-15 Gas System Maintenance

Shooting Illustrated. Direct-impingement (DI) gas tubes—such as those used on most AR platforms—should be checked periodically to ensure the hardware that secures them is present and tightly fitted. If you can access that area, removing the roll pin (or screw) will allow you to inspect the forward end of the gas tube for any cracks where the pin passes through. This is not a frequent check, but it is worth doing anytime you remove a gas tube. Any cracking around the pin hole requires replacemen...

Court allows execution of South Dakota inmate to move forward

The justices refused to halt the execution of South Dakota inmate Charles Rhines, who was sentenced to death for the 1992 murder of Donnivan Schaeffer during the burglary of a donut shop in Rapid City. Rhines had been scheduled to die this afternoon, but news reports indicated that the state had postponed his execution until the Supreme Court could rule on his appeals, which it did shortly after 7 p.m. EST tonight. In 2017, Rhines and his lawyers began to prepare for a possible petition for clem...

What does Mr. Stephen Bayezes and a pregnant woman in Florida have in common? Here’s another report. One man is dead after a husband and wife said two men broke into their home and made demands, the Hillsborough County Sheriff’s Office said. “They came in heavily hooded and masked,” homeowner Jeremy King told Bay News 9. “As soon as they had got the back door opened, they had a pistol on me and was grabbing my 11-year-old daughter.” That’s when they began pistol-whipping ...

Coming Soon To A Neighborhood Near You

PJM. While leftists continue to deny that border control is a national security issue, on Tuesday, a Muslim migrant from Jordan named Moayad Heider Mohammad Aldairi was sentenced to three years in prison for sneaking at least six Yemeni Muslims into the United States across the border from Mexico. What could they possibly have been planning? No doubt they just wanted to do the jobs that Americans refuse to take, right? These are by no means the first Muslims to have been caught crossing into th...

Homemade Firearms And Prohibition

News from the Northwest. Law enforcement reviewed surveillance video and observed a man, later identified as Huricks, walk into the store and steal a pack of cigarettes during the first investigation. The video captured Huricks leaving the store. As he did, the clerk grabbed a baseball bat and went to the front door. Cameras from the store’s exterior captured Huricks, while outside, pointing what appeared to be a firearm at the front door, according to the district attorney’s office. [ … ] The O...

Gun Confiscations? Don’t Ask, Don’t Tell

Silliness. “They should not tell everything they’re going to do. If you’re going to take people’s guns away, wait until you get elected — then take the guns away,” she said. “Don’t tell them ahead of time.” Oh, is that how it works?  Hey, I’ve got news for you, cat-lady.  That horse left the barn decades ago.  We all know by now.

‘The New Pope’ Trailer: John Malkovich Takes Charge of the Church in the Follow-Up to ‘The Young Pope’

You can’t teach a new pope old tricks, and John Malkovich‘s John Paul III is certainly more of a stickler for tradition than Jude Law‘s flashy Pope Pius XIII of Paolo Sorrentino’s The Young Pope. But thankfully, in the follow-up season of the HBO series The New Pope, this successor seems to have just as much of an ego. “Everyone in the world should know who the pope is,” John Paul III tells his staff. “It’s not vanity; it’s necessity.” But despite enjoying the fruits of his new role, the new po...

Justices release additional orders from last week’s conference

This morning the Supreme Court issued more orders from the justices’ private conference last week. As expected, the court did not add any new cases to its merits docket for this term. The justices denied review in Time Warner Cable v. Sprint Communications, a dispute that arose when Sprint sued Time Warner for patent infringement and obtained $140 million in royalties on Time Warner’s revenues from its Voice over Internet Protocol service. Chief Justice John Roberts was recused from the case. Th...

Behavior Regulation: Having a Hard Time Finding an Attourney

My question involves labor and employment law for the state of: California I've been trying to find an attorney to at least consult with due to issues at work. What I find is everyone I've contacted is looking for a fairly clear cut case. If my employer is in violation of discrimination against protected categories, is engaged in wage theft, or anything else that you might read on an advertisement, they'd be willing to help, but none have gone farther than screening for those clear violations. ...
