darling, darling, if only you knew how your shadow dogs my heels even as I chase after joy with a ferocity of a slavering hound the intensity of the seeking fox the hunger of the starved wolves in the timber made monstrous and greedy by imagined need

if only I could shake you off like an unseen gossamer strand walked into by sheer accident caught by the impish wind and taken to elsewheres wild, free in lusty green springtime ripe to burst with laughter and love

oh, my darling even now, my only my if only

So there's this thing that's been going around Mastodon that's making the white, middle-class membership of the Fediverse go all weepy. It's this:

Declaración universal de los Derechos de los niños a escuchar cuentos

Now ignoring the utterly cringe-worthy wording of even the title[1], which (for those who don't speak Spanish like, say, me) in English says, according to DeepL, “Universal Declaration of the Children's Rights to Listen to Stories”, there's a whole lot to unpack in this short document. I've put the DeepL translation at the bottom of this rant so you can follow along.

I should be clear before I start that I'm not opposed to the ghost of the idea that's behind this pile of glurge. As such I will be making some specific recommendations at the end to improve it. But first I'll have to start unpacking this perfect example of left-flavoured white supremacy.


The “declaration” is termed Universal, meaning the declarers consider it to apply to everybody around the world. This is further cemented by the name of the organization publishing this “universal declaration”: the International Storytelling Network.


Item 1 says that it advocates the “most beautiful stories from all the oral traditions of the world”. And then proceeds to cite not a one. There's not a single Russian or Saudi or Iranian or Indian or Bangladeshi or Vietnamese or Chinese or Innu or Kazakh or Turkish or Georgian or Tanzanian or Ethiopian or ... and the list goes on and on and on ... author or story cited anywhere else in the document. This is quite arguably the single most grotesquely offensive part of this document (and the largest motivator in me writing this rant).

So why is there not a single non-Eurosphere author listed in section 5 among “all the books, stories and poems” whose authors adults are “obliged to make available”? There's eight writers cited, all of whom are in the Eurosphere, most of whom are, I'm guessing, Spanish or Portuguese (I can't really tell apart by names, sorry), and not a single person from outside the, putting it bluntly, white European world. Not one.

Referenced stories

The referenced stories in section 10, where I recognize them through (bad) translation, are purely white European in origin. Of the two I don't recognize, one of them might possibly be African in origin (but given the tenor of the rest of the list it likely isn't). I'm not going to recite the list of nations above again. Just scroll up and read the list again and ask yourself where the folk stories from these nations and hundreds more! might be.

Cultural values

This phrase in section 1 is a killer to me: “... especially those that stimulate the child's imagination and critical thinking”. This is for a few reasons.

First, an incoherent, meandering list of ten vague “universal”, “international” declarations is not exactly a good place to be talking about stimulating critical thinking. Someone needed to apply a bit of critical thinking to this list before shouting it out to the world.

Next, there's this bizarre assumption that stories which stimulate a Eurosphere child's imagination will stimulate all children's imaginations where the truth is far more likely that many stories that are in the cultural background of the Eurosphere, with its Biblical-based moral and cultural assumptions, are going to cause confusion and incomprehension rather than stimulate imagination.

Lest you think I'm imagining this and that story appeal is universal, one problem I had when teaching English to Chinese students was precisely that storytelling style in China is very different from storytelling style in Europe and descended cultures. Most notably the children were very uncomfortable that there was no moral to be taken from the story attached at the end. It was disquieting to them that the desired “lesson” to be taken from the story was not there. I'd spend half a class explaining how to discern the moral indirectly by analysis only to be told that this was wasteful when the writer could have just said it. They, in short, didn't get their imaginations stimulated by the stories because the stories were alien in structure (not to mention content).

Finally, the cultures that value harmonious coexistence and communal effort are not going to exactly agree with individual imagination and “critical thinking” as a goal. (Are they wrong to not value individual critical thinking? Not our place to decide for them!) For a “universal” declaration it's looking mighty white and middle class. Thus a lot of popular western stories, which seem to hinge upon the solitary hero fighting the status quo will not parse. The result of people from these cultures reading them will once again be bafflement and disquiet, not imagination and critical thought stimulation.


The “International” Storytelling Network apparently isn't sufficiently international to actually translate the document with native speakers. Instead they give a hook into Google Translate, a site that is absolutely God-awful at translation of anything that isn't whatever it is that nerds are interested in this week.

If you're an “international” group and you're making a “universal” declaration ... where are the proper translations?! Diving around that web site I see people from all over the place registered as members of this network. Why haven't any of those stepped up and provided a translation of the declaration? (Here's a hint: many of them likely wouldn't want to given the contents...)

Sheer silliness

So let's look at some (and I stress some) of the silly parts of the declaration:

2 ... the full right to demand that his parents tell him stories at any time of the day.

Any time of day?! So in these people's worlds children don't have school, apparently, and adults don't have to work, both of which, to be even marginally productive at, require restful sleep in advance.

3 ... the absolute right to ask the adult of his/her choice to tell them ...

The absolute right to demand stories from any adult? What!? If some child walks up to me when I'm going about my day and “demands” a story, I'm going to look around for the parent or guardian and give them one Hell of a tongue-lashing! Part of this is because it's presumptuous for anybody, child or not, to tell me how I spend my time, and part is because children need to learn at an early age to respect others' boundaries, not intrude upon them with demands. Do you want to raise a generation of narcissists who believe their every demand should be catered to by everybody around them at a whim? 'Cause that's how you raise such a generation! (Just ask the Chinese and their “little emperors”...)

4 ... the right to listen to stories sitting on the lap of his grandparents.

Flirting with cultural values again. Grandparents aren't the indulgent, child-spoiling crowd in all cultures. In some they're the disciplinarians. Or they're the ones keeping the household in order while the parents labour twelve hours a day. Or they're ... you know, anything but someone who can just stop, put a child on the knee, and tell stories. I'm sorry if it bothers you to know this, middle-class, suburban western woman, but in a lot of places people work hard until literally the day they die. There's no universal privileged class of people who can just sit around and tell stories on demand by virtue of age.

7 ... their parents are in the obligation to decontaminate them [ed: of television] leading them by the ways of the imagination of the hand of the hand of a good book of infantile stories.

The idiotic anti-technology vibe is noted and rejected. There is quality television and there is crap television. Not all kids are interested in books, much like not all kids are interested in, say, caterpillars. Stop forcing your very middle-class, very white values on everybody else! If children are motivated to tell their own stories based upon what they see on television let them do it, dammit! Just because you're a Luddite (as am I: I don't watch television) doesn't mean you get to inflict that stance on everybody else in the world!

8 Adults have the obligation to nourish themselves permanently with new stories, their own or not, with or without kings, long or short.

Not all adults have skill in making up new stories, nor time in memorizing them. Again, only the white middle class in the Eurosphere systematically has a parent who can afford that much time to do things like this.

All this silliness is where I know that this declaration is absolutely the product of white, middle-class people (probably women). For only in this world is the conceit conceivable of making story-telling the absolute centre of every child's life. But even from this perspective some of this is ridiculous.

Sillyness: bafflement subsection

6 Every child has the full right to know the fables, myths and legends of the oral tradition of his country.

I am genuinely baffled here. Where, precisely, are they finding places on Earth where children are not permitted to know their cultural fables, myths, and legends? I've lived on a rather sizable fraction of the planet's surface and have never, not even once, encountered a place where this is true.

7 The child has the right to invent and tell his or her own stories, as well as to modify existing ones, creating his or her own version.

Same question here. Where on Earth are they finding cultures that prohibit children from inventing their own stories?


I'm hoping this is an artifact of bad mechanical translation because otherwise this is just so over the top and pretentious it deserves nothing but derision.

So how can this be fixed?

As I said at the top, I like the idea that's at the core of this declaration. I just think the execution is woefully inadequate, bordering on being simultaneously offensive and silly. So here are some specific recommendations.

  • Take down the declaration as it is now. It's an embarrassment and you should be embarrassed having put it up in the first place in the state it is in.

  • Take an editor's pen to some of the bombastic and silly sections. Figure out what you're actually trying to communicate there and do just that: communicate it. The current hyperbole is just not ... good. At all.

  • You're an international organization with “1,300 professional storytellers from 61 countries on all continents”. Solicit their input! Whatever groups, channels, mailing lists, etc. you all communicate over, go over this declaration and have frank discussions over its merits (there are some!) and liabilities (there are many!). Then solicit the input of non-European (I fear a storytelling circle is almost always going to be middle class) people for the following items:

    • recommended authors/collections
    • recommended tales
    • cultural blinders in your assumptions of how things are done
    • a hint of realism in how children and adults both actually lead their lives
  • Use that same status as an international organization with 1300 storytellers from 61 countries and translate the document properly into as many languages as you can find people comfortable with translating it for you instead of using the horrible translations that come from the clown pants-wearing Big Tech sphere.

DeepL Translation of original source document:

Universal Declaration of the Children's Rights to Listen to Stories

Compiled and adapted by the International Storytelling Network

  1. Every child, without distinction of race, language or religion, has the right to hear the most beautiful stories from all the oral traditions of the world, especially those that stimulate the child's imagination and critical thinking.

  2. Every child has the full right to demand that his parents tell him stories at any time of the day. Those parents who are caught refusing to tell a story to a child, not only incur in a serious crime of culpable omission, but they are also condemning themselves to the fact that their children will never ask them for another story again.

  3. Every child who for one reason or another has no one to tell him/her stories, has the absolute right to ask the adult of his/her choice to tell them, as long as he/she does it with love and tenderness, which is how stories should be told.

  4. Every child has the right to listen to stories sitting on the lap of his grandparents. Those who have their four grandparents alive can pass them on to other children who, for various reasons, do not have grandparents to tell them. In the same way, those grandparents who do not have grandchildren are free to go to schools, parks and other places where children gather, where they can freely tell as many stories as they wish.

  5. Every child has the right to know who José Martí, Hans Christian Andersen, Elena Fortún, Lewis Carroll, Elsa Bornemann, Carlo Collodi, Gloria Fuertes, María Elena Walsh, among others, are. Adults are obliged to make available to children all the books, stories and poems of these authors.

  6. Every child has the full right to know the fables, myths and legends of the oral tradition of his country.

  7. The child has the right to invent and tell his or her own stories, as well as to modify existing ones, creating his or her own version. In those cases of children very influenced by the television, their parents are in the obligation to decontaminate them leading them by the ways of the imagination of the hand of the hand of a good book of infantile stories.

  8. The child has the right to demand new stories. Adults have the obligation to nourish themselves permanently with new stories, their own or not, with or without kings, long or short. The only obligatory thing is that these stories be beautiful and interesting.

  9. The child always has the right to ask for another story, and also to ask to be told the same story a million times.

[ed. The translation failed badly on the next section and I had to insert a few guesses of my own for what stories were being referenced where I recognized them. Where not figured out I left the translation as-is with an appended [?] to mark it.]

  1. Finally, every child has the right to grow up with the adventures of Alice, Little Red Riding Hood, of “Uncle Tiger and Uncle Rabbit” [?], of that little donkey called Platero [?], of Puss in Boots, of the bunting of fairy tales [?] and of the immortal “Once upon a time...”, magic words that open the doors of imagination on the road to the most beautiful dreams of childhood.


[1] I sincerely hope it isn't as cringe-inducing in the original Spanish as it is when translated to English!

Online Casino Deals

Online casino deals are offers that provide players with additional value and a better gaming experience. They can take many forms, including free spins, Game of the Week promotions and reload bonuses. These offers usually come with terms and conditions that must be met before the player can claim them. No deposit bonuses

Online casino no deposit bonuses are a great way to try out an online gaming site without risking your real money. They may come in the form of free spins, cash or game credits. These offers are intended to lure new customers, and many of them will impose playthrough requirements that require the player to wager a certain amount of money in a short period of time before they can withdraw the bonus funds. Online casinos use these bonuses to drum up new business and hope that players will stick around as long-term players.

To claim a no deposit bonus, you must create a new account and provide valid identification documents. This information is used to verify your identity, prevent fraud and ensure that you’re playing at a legitimate online casino. The best US casinos will also uphold responsible gambling and player protection measures, so you can be sure your personal details are secure.

When selecting an online casino, look for one that offers a variety of games. The best ones will feature high-quality titles from leading software providers. You should also check whether a particular casino offers live dealer gaming or mobile versions of their games. These features will make your online casino experience even more enjoyable.

Most online casinos will offer no deposit bonuses to new players, but some will also provide them to existing customers. These are usually referred to as “reload bonuses” and can be very lucrative if you’re a loyal customer. However, you should always read the terms and conditions carefully before claiming any of these bonuses.

The best online casinos will offer a generous no deposit bonus to new customers, but they’ll also offer other bonuses to keep them loyal. For example, a casino may offer free spins on popular slot machines, which can help you win big. Another way to earn extra chips is through the refer-a-friend program.

Some no deposit casino online offers will ask you to enter a bonus code to unlock the offer, while others will simply be automatically credited to your account once you meet the qualifying criteria. If the casino does require a bonus code, it will be displayed on the bonus page or in the cashier section. Depending on your phone type, you may also be able to download an app from the Google Play store (Android) or the App Store (iPhone). Sign-up bonuses

Sign-up bonuses are used by casino websites to attract new players. They come in the form of free money or deposit match offers. They may also include reload bonuses for loyal players. These promotions help players build up their bankrolls to play real money games. It is important to read the terms and conditions of a casino online signup bonus before you claim it. The terms and conditions will tell you the maximum amount of money you can win with the bonus. They will also explain which games count towards clearing the bonus requirements and how long you have to meet those wagering requirements before you can withdraw your winnings.

Some bonuses are limited to certain types of games, such as video poker and online blackjack. Others have different rollover terms and are only valid for certain payment methods. Some casinos also exclude some games from the bonus scheme altogether. The most important thing to remember when choosing an online casino is that the signup bonus should reflect your own gaming habits and goals.

The most common type of casino sign-up offer is the deposit match bonus. This bonus matches a percentage of your initial deposit with site credit, up to a specific limit. These bonuses often have a high value, but it is important to remember that the highest payouts do not always make the best casinos. You should look at the total value of the bonus and how easy it is to meet its requirements before making a decision.

Many US online gambling sites use signup bonuses to stand out from their competitors in fiercely competitive markets. Some bonus packages speak directly to specific audiences, such as slots players or big spenders who play live dealer tables. The size of a bonus package and the terms and conditions that apply to it are also important factors to consider.

Most welcome bonus offers have a minimum deposit amount, which is how much you have to spend in order to unlock the rest of the money. These amounts vary from site to site, but most require a minimum deposit of $10. Some require a promo code, which can be found in the “Bonus Code” field on the registration page. Other welcome offers do not require a code and can be claimed instantly. Live dealer games

Live dealer games are a great way to get the feel of a real casino from your home. They’re streamed from a studio, so you can see the dealer and interact with them while playing. The software on the player’s end makes it easy to play the game and place your bets. In addition, a real dealer is there to help you out if you have any questions. This adds a personal touch to the game, which many players appreciate.

Live online casinos have a wide range of gaming options to choose from, including the most popular table games such as blackjack and roulette. You can also try your luck at live baccarat, which is one of the most popular casino games in the world. These online casinos are secure and safe to use, and they offer a variety of welcome bonuses to attract new customers.

The games offered by online casino websites are designed to give the best possible experience of gambling on the internet. The graphics are crisp and the sound is high quality, which makes the whole experience more realistic. Some sites also have a chat room where you can interact with the dealer and other players.

Another advantage of online casino games is that you can play them on any device, including smartphones and tablets. However, you need to be aware of some limitations when playing on mobile devices. For example, you may run out of data while you’re playing if your connection is poor. You should always use a reliable Wi-Fi connection when playing on a mobile device.

You can play live casino games on the go with your smartphone or tablet. The apps for these games are usually optimized for mobile devices, and you don’t need to install any additional software. They’re available for iOS, Android and Windows devices. Generally, they’re designed to work over a stable internet connection and require less computing power than traditional online casino games. 線上娛樂城

There are a number of companies that specialize in live dealer games, including Evolution Gaming and Ezugi. These companies employ hundreds of dealers and have multiple studios around the world. These live casino games are a great option for those who don’t want to leave the comfort of their own homes and still enjoy the thrills of online gambling. Games offered

Online casinos have a huge variety of games to choose from. They include casino classics like blackjack and roulette, as well as more popular games such as video poker and slots. Some of them also offer progressive jackpots. These jackpots grow over time as more players place bets on the game and can even become life-changing amounts.

Many of these games are available through a mobile app that allows players to play them on their smartphones or tablets. Most of these apps have a simple interface, making them easy to use and intuitive for new players. They also feature helpful tutorials for beginners and help players understand the rules of each game.

If you’re new to online gambling, make sure you check the casino’s minimum deposit amount and wagering requirements. Some casino sites require a certain amount of wagering before you can withdraw your bonus money. Others may set the minimum amount higher for high rollers or limit the number of times you can use your bonus funds. If you’re not able to meet the requirements, your bonus will be deactivated.

Some online casinos allow you to deposit using your credit card or bank account, but most offer a variety of payment methods, including Bitcoin. Some of them even support Bitcoin cash, Litecoin, and Ethereum. Some of them also have special VIP hosts for loyal customers and offer a fast and easy cash out process.

Whether you prefer playing in brick-and-mortar casinos or online, there’s no doubt that these gaming options are a great way to enjoy your favorite games. They are convenient and offer a variety of benefits, from jumbo-size jackpots to cinematic graphics. However, be sure to check the terms and conditions of each site to ensure you’re getting the best deal.

In addition to offering a variety of casino games, many online casinos offer a range of promotions for players. These can be welcome bonuses, reload offers, or free chips to play with. Some online casinos may also offer loyalty bonuses to encourage players to play regularly. While some of these offers are aimed at new players, most are geared towards returning ones.


from growandfly

Apa coba skenario buruk yang mungkin tercipta antara dua insan yang sudah sejak kecil menjalin hubungan pertemanan dengan begitu akrabnya? Ya, muncul perasaan sayang yang lebih dari sekadar sayang kepada teman.

Skenario buruk satu, checked.

Lalu, ada kah kemungkinan muncul skenario buruk lain yang menyertainya? Ada. Misalnya, kemungkinan kalau rasa sayang yang dipunya tidak berbalas dengan sama besarnya.

Skenario buruk dua, checked.

Selain itu, apakah ada lagi? Ya, it’s the Fear of losing—fear with capital F, Fear.

Skenario buruk tiga, checked.

Maka tiga hal yang telah ter-cheklist itu rasanya sudah lebih dari cukup bagi Asa untuk sama sekali tidak mengungkap perasaannya kepada siapa pun, terlebih pada sang pemeran utama, si teman sedari kecilnya—Ani.

Asa bersumpah. Lebih baik dirinya sembunyikan segala perasaan terhadap Ani dengan konsekuensi menahan sakit selagi ia biarkan semua perasaan itu terkikis sampai habis, daripada ia harus kehilangan Ani yang di hampir seumur hidupnya sudah jadi bagian konstan dalam dirinya.

Tapi dasarnya manusia, dirinya tentu hanya mampu berencana dan berusaha. Hasilnya? Tetap lah sang penulis garis takdir yang punya kuasa menentukan. Sebagaimana yang terjadi pada kasus Asa; dirinya ketahuan.

Skenario buruk empat, checked.

Fucking hell. Asa bahkan tidak punya nyali untuk membayangkan skenario selanjutnya akan jadi seburuk apa. Maka ia berusaha, kembali mencoba dengan seluruh tenaga yang ia punya untuk mempertahankan apa yang masih bisa ia selamatkan.

“Maaf.” Entah ini sudah jadi kata penyesalan yang ke berapa kali, Asa tak punya waktu untuk menghitungnya. Terlebih ketika akhirnya ia pilih untuk menurut pada apa yang jadi keinginan Ani—memberikan penjelasan yang sejujur-jujurnya. “I’ll stop, kalau kamu ada ngerasa keberatan.”

“Sebentar—“ Ani menegakkan tubuhnya. Seisi ruang kamar Asa adalah saksi bisu soal bagaimana si gadis akhirnya buka suara setelah sejak tadi hanya Asa saja yang mati-matian kasih penjelasan. “—jadi Kak Asa ini beneran suka sama aku? Sayang aku?”


“Suka dan sayang, as in you like me more than a friend?”


“Terus semua foto aku yang Kak Asa simpan di folder Dear Ani ini, gak lebihnya cuma Kak Asa yang pengen mengenang setiap momen bahagia yang kita habiskan bareng-bareng aja?”

So, here it is; main problem of the day. Ada banyak cara mencintai, dan Asa memilih untuk mengabadikan setiap momen bahagia yang ia habiskan bersama Ani melalui jepretan lensa kamera. Lalu menyimpan setiap dari itu dalam satu folder terorganisir yang ia beri judul “Dear, Ani” dan ia kunci sehingga memungkinkan hanya ia yang dapat mengaksesnya. Maka, lagi dan lagi, Asa tidak punya pembelaan dan hanya mampu menberi jawaban, “Iya.”

“Oh my God—“ sebut Ani tak percaya. “—why are you never show any signs or hints about it then? Kenapa kamu sikapnya malah kayak nunjukin hal yang sebaliknya.”

“Iy—wait. What?!” Asa pikir, ia harus sudah persiapkan diri untuk menerima skenario terburuk nomor lima. Tapi, apa yang baru saja dia dengarkan? Kenapa Ani seperti terdengar sama sekali tidak keberatan? “Maksud kamu gimana?”

“Kak Asa tau gak sih? I almost thought that you never like me, at all.”

“Hah?” Asa tidak percaya dengan apa yang baru saja ia dengar. “Ya enggak lah?! Of course I like you. Why wouldn’t I?”

“Because I’m annoying?” tebak Ani. “Kamu setiap hari panggil aku bocil, kayak di matamu aku ini anak kecil yang nakal. Setiap hari bikin sebel tapi kamu tetap punya tanggung jawab buat jagain dan gak ninggalin aku. So you don’t have any other choice but to stay.”

“Enggak, Ani. Bukan kayak gitu.”

“But you never said that you love me back,” jujur Ani yang akhirnya meluapkan satu hal yang paling membuat hatinya mengganjal. “I told you many times that I appreciate you and I love you. Tapi kamu gak pernah bales itu.”

Butuh beberapa detik bagi Asa untuk mencerna sederetan kalimat Ani barusan. Lantas ada helaan nafas berat—sarat akan rasa tak percaya—begitu semua itu berhasil Asa pahami dengan baik.

“Sini deh,” pinta Asa seraya ia menepuk ruang kosong di sampingnya, sebab sedari tadi mereka ada dalam posisi dimana Asa duduk di sisi ranjang dan Ani duduk di kursi meja belajarnya. “Duduk lebih deketan dulu, biar enak aku ngomongnya.”

Dan Ani menurut tanpa protes barang sedikit pun. “Udah. Mau ngomong apa lagi emang?”

“I’m sorry,” ungkap Asa tulus. Satu tangannya terangkat untuk usak gemas puncak kepala Ani. “Gak pernah punya maksud buat bikin kamu ngerasa begitu. Maaf ya.”

“Terus maksudnya apa?”

“Kan udah jelas jawabannya?”

“Apa? Kamu suka aku?”

“Iya.” Kali ini tangan Asa bergerak dua-duanya, untuk kemudian menangkup kedua sisi wajah Ani sehingga ia bisa dengan mudah mengarahkan paras manis si gadis untuk menghadap lurus ke arahnya. “Coba lihat sini.”


“Apa aku kelihatan kayak enggak suka dan sebel sama keberadaan kamu?”

Bohong kalau Ani jawab iya, maka ia pilih untuk menggelengkan kepala.

“Yaudah?” ucap Asa sambil tersenyum santai. “Lagian kan udah jelas..., how I feel about you....”

Ani tersenyum. “Oke.”

“Oke?” tanya Asa heran. Satu alisnya terangkat, dan sorot matanya pancarkan penasaran. “Just? Ok?”

Ani melepas tangan Asa yang sejak tadi masih menangkup kedua sisinya, kemudian digenggamnya kedua tangan itu. “Iya, oke. Makasih udah sayang sama aku, Kak.”

“Ah—ya. Sama-sama.” Sejujurnya Asa sama sekali tidak menduga hal ini, ia pikir Ani tidak akan bersikap sesantai ini. “Jadi, kamu gak marah? Gak keberatan?”

“Of course no?????” jawab Ani. “Aku bakal lebih marah kalau Kak Asa terpaksa stay sama aku padahal aslinya gak sayang aku.”

“Ah..., oke.” Ada lega yang membasuh damai seluruh ruang di dada. “So we’re good?”

“We’re good,” angguk Ani. “Lagian sayangnya Kak Asa, gimana pun bentuknya, selama ini gak pernah bikin aku risih. So I don’t think it’s a bad thing?”

“Thank you...”

“But—“ Untuk pertama kalinya, Ani terlihat kebingungan sejak keduanya bertemu hari itu. “—you know I love you too, right? I like being around you. But I think—I think I don’t like you in a way that—“

“—I know,” potong Asa cepat. Menghadapi situasi dimana cintanya tak berbalas adalah skenario terburuk nomor dua, dan Asa sudah sejak lama ikhlaskan itu semua. Jadi ini bukan masalah besar untuknya sekarang. Maka ia tidak perlu menunggu ani untuk selesaikan ucapannya, terlebih si gadis terlihat begitu kesulitan menyusun kalimatnya. Asa tidak suka lihat Ani berada dalam kesusahan. “And it’s ok. Aku enggak mau kamu malah jadi terbebani karena ini. Gak usah terlalu dipikirin, ya? Please?”

“I’m sorry...”

Lantas Asa secara refleks malah menarik Ani ke dalam peluknya. “Gak perlu, Ani. Gak ada hal yang salah yang sampai harus sama siapa pun kita maafkan kayaknya.”

“Iya...” ucap Ani yang tidak tahu harus merespon apa lagi. Baginya ini terasa lucu, karena sekarang Ani seperti sedang terima penghiburan ketika posisinya Asa lah yang secara tak langsung telah terima penolakan. “Kak Asa...”


Apa yang Ani ungkapkan selanjutnya adalah sungguhan keluar dari segala ketulusan yang ia punya. Ani berani bersumpah. “Makasih banyak ya...”

“Enggak, Ani— geleng Asa kecil. Ani sudah mau menerima dan biarkan dirinya untuk tetap bertahan di sisi si gadis—tidak ada hal lain yang paling Asa inginkan sekarang selain ini. “—makasih banyak.”

“Hmmm....” Tangan Ani melingkar di tubuh Asa untuk akhirnya membalas peluk si yang lebih tua. “Sama-sama.”

Lantas keduanya tersenyum lega, dan hari ini dihabiskan dengan canda tawa sebagaimana mereka selalu habiskan hari-hari lain yang rasanya seperti tidak pernah berubah sejak keduanya masih sama-sama hanya dua orang anak kecil yang belum banyak tahu soal dunia.

Skenario buruk lima, strached.

Asa tidak kehilangan Aninya. Begitu pula dengan Ani, ia menerima Kak Asa dan segala bentuk kasih sayangnya.

yours truly, ann.

Online Casino Highest Payout

Online casino highest payout offers a number of advantages to players. These include fair and transparent gaming. They also offer faster withdrawals than their land-based counterparts.

These casinos have higher RTP % payout rates for slots games, which means you’ll win more often. They’re also mobile optimised, meaning you can play on your smartphone or tablet. Slots

Slot machines are some of the most popular casino games online. They are easy to play, and the payouts can be quite high. There are several different types of slots, including stand-alone, linked, and progressive jackpot machines. These machines work by taking a small percentage of every wager and adding it to the pot, which grows until someone hits the jackpot. The best online casino sites offer a variety of these games and a strong user experience.

The top payout online casinos are those that have a fast withdrawal process, a wide variety of free methods for depositing and withdrawing money, lenient wagering requirements, and high-quality games with high RTP rates. However, it is important to note that these factors can vary depending on the game and the casino. Table games

Table games like blackjack, roulette, and video poker have payout odds that vary. These odds are based on the paytable, rules of the game, side bets, and other factors that influence the casino’s profits. The higher the payout odds, the more likely a player will win. But these figures don’t account for skill and strategy, which can play a role in these games. The best online casinos have higher payout percentages because they don’t need to pay for things like expensive building leases, security, and customer support. This means they can give more money back to players, making them happier and more loyal.

Another popular table game is Craps, which has a high return to player (RTP) of more than 99%. However, the payout odds can vary depending on the type of bet you place. For example, a pass or don’t pass bet has a higher RTP than a come or don’t come bet. This variation is one reason why it’s important to practice your table game skills in a live casino before playing for real money. Live dealer games

Live dealer games offer the best of both worlds, combining the convenience of playing online casino games with the heart pumping experience of going to the casino floor. You can play these games from the comfort of your own home, or on the go if you’re in a state where gambling is legal. In addition, you can trust that the games are fair because they’re run by real people in a studio in your state, unlike virtual table games that rely on random number generators. 線上百家樂

The payout rates of live dealer games vary by game, but in general, they’re higher than those of traditional online casino games. The higher payout rates reflect the fact that live dealers are trained to deal cards more quickly and accurately, while standard online casino games are typically played by multiple players at the same time. The higher payout rates also mean that you’ll have more chances to win at these games, assuming you place the right bets.

If you’re looking for a high RTP, look no further than blackjack. Most live dealer casinos offer a range of blackjack tables, with stakes that run as low as $1 and as high as $100. Depending on how many decks are used, you can expect to see returns of over 99%.

Other popular live dealer games include roulette and craps. However, you should note that these games are usually available for real money play only and can’t be played for free. This is because most bonuses have wagering requirements that must be met before you can cash out any winnings. However, the house edge in these games is much lower than that of other types of casino games, making them a great option for anyone who wants to enjoy the thrill of live gaming without leaving the comfort of their own homes.

Online casino bonuses are an excellent way to try out new games and get a feel for how they work. They typically come in the form of a match-up bonus or free spins, which you can use to make a real money deposit. Some bonuses are instantly credited to your account while others require you to verify that you are the owner of the email address associated with your account before they become active.

Unlike live casinos, which are often subject to local gambling regulations that limit the style and format of certain games, online casino websites are not limited by these factors. This freedom allows them to offer a wider range of games and better payouts for players. In addition, the costs of operating an online casino are much lower than those of a live casino. These savings are passed on to players in the form of higher payout percentages and happier customers.

The top-rated casinos will publish their payout percentages on their websites. However, if you want to be sure of the accuracy of these figures, you should find an audited casino online that is verified by a third-party organization. These groups will test the casino’s games and then publish the results.

Before you start playing for real money, you must be at least 18 years old. This age requirement is set by the gambling laws of your jurisdiction and is also the minimum age for registering an account at most online casinos. You should always gamble responsibly, and never deposit more than you can afford to lose. You should also consider joining a gambling support group, such as GamCare or Gamblers Anonymous. Regulations

Regulations at top online casinos can vary, but all of the best casino sites are regulated and operate in compliance with consumer protection laws. In addition, they use powerful security tools to protect your personal information and money. They also offer a wide variety of games, including high RTP slots and table games. Some of the top payout online casinos even run their own in-house progressive jackpot networks, so you can play for big prizes with every spin!

One of the biggest differences between live and online casinos is that local gambling regulations can restrict game style and format. However, these restrictions don’t apply to online casinos, which means that they can offer a more diverse range of casino games for players to choose from.

Best Marshmallow Bed Android Apps

Marshmallow has some big battery improvements in Doze and App Standby. But there are many other Android apps that can help.

Flex storage is good for future low storage devices, as are slick swipe actions and a tweaked notifications system. But there are plenty of other great features too. Gallery Go

Gallery Go is a very light-weight app for viewing media files on your phone. It’s a companion to Google Photos and offers a few key features that make it stand out from other gallery apps. The main difference is that Gallery Go works offline and doesn’t rely on an active Internet connection to work. It’s a good choice for people who are worried about the amount of data used by their mobile network or have limited storage on their device.

Upon launching Gallery Go, the app displays a mosaic of your photos and videos, stacked in chronological order. At the bottom, you’ll see two tabs — Photos and Folders. The former organizes the images and video folders on your internal or external storage, while the latter displays a strip of automatically generated folders (People, Selfies, Nature, Animals, Documents and Videos).

The app also has a built-in file manager that allows you to sort media files by size, delete unwanted ones, move unused files into the trash and create backup copies of your most important images. Gallery Go also comes with a handful of in-app editing options such as crop, rotate and some basic filters. It’s not as advanced as Google Photos but should satisfy most users.

Another nice feature is that the app can analyze your photos and suggest a variety of changes, such as adding a portrait effect or remastering your photos to make them look better. These suggestions are based on the content of your photos and the information that your device collects. You can select which changes to apply and even choose to keep the original photo if you prefer.

Like Google Photos, Gallery Go lets you share your pictures via Bluetooth, Messages or WhatsApp. The app also allows you to compress images and video, which is a very handy option when you’re low on space.

Gallery Go is available as a standalone app on the Play Store and also comes pre-installed on Itel S15 and some A55 Marshmallow devices. It’s a great choice for people who are worried about their mobile network data or need an offline-focused picture and video viewer. Sleep As Android

It features a smart alarm clock, intelligent sleep cycle tracking, and a unique wake-up experience that uses a combination of natural sounds, CAPTCHA verification, QR code or NFC tag, and a smart light. It is easy to use and offers a range of other features, including snoring detection and talk recording.

The app uses the phone’s accelerometer and GPS to detect your movement, and it also uses its own sonar feature to track your movements. It can be used in airplane mode, and it tracks your sleeping pattern to help you improve your sleep habits. It is compatible with most wearables and smartwatches, and it can track your heart rate with Happy Electronics StressLocator pulse oximeters.

Oversleeping can lead to a lack of focus and concentration at work, so it is important to get enough sleep. Oversleeping can be caused by many factors, such as stress, anxiety, and a hectic schedule. To overcome these problems, you should try to relax before going to bed and listen to soothing music to calm your mind. In addition, you should set an alarm that will wake you up at the right time so you can have a good day at work. If you are not able to fall asleep, you should try counting sheep or turning off the TV and using white noise to relax. A good night’s sleep is necessary to feel healthy, happy, and well-balanced. So, it is crucial to have a regular sleep schedule. This can be difficult for people with busy lifestyles, so they may need an aid to help them fall asleep at night and stay awake during the day.

Designed exclusively for Android, Sleep Tracker tracks your nightly rest and provides useful data and charts. It also gives you tips on how to improve your sleeping habits and improve your overall quality of life. The app also has a built-in timer and alarm that lets you wake up at the optimal point in your sleep cycle. The app uses the phone's motion sensors to determine the duration of your sleep cycles.

It also shows the percentage of your sleep cycle spent in each stage. The app will compare this data to your average sleep score and provide you with a daily sleep analysis report.

Other features include Doze, which puts your phone into a low-activity state when it's unattended. This feature will still allow you to receive calls and messages, but it won't drain the battery as quickly. It will also work with your home Wi-Fi to boost its performance and help you avoid interference from neighbors' networks.

It also comes with a variety of programs that are designed to help you fall asleep and stay asleep. Some of these programs are based on research into what helps astronauts sleep. Other programs are based on sleep habits, such as the Go2Sleep tracker, which recommends relaxing music and sleep routines to ensure you get a good night's rest.

Another great option is the Sleepme+ tracker, which works in conjunction with the Dock Pro sleep system. Unlike other trackers, this one doesn't need to be worn on the wrist or neck and is placed on top of your mattress for more accurate measurements. The tracker can measure heart rate, blood oxygen levels, and your sleep stages, and it also tracks the temperature in your bedroom. The tracker has a 30-day return window and is backed by a 1-year warranty. Alarm Clock

Most smartphones come with a default clock app that includes programmable alarms, and many third-party apps are available to take those features even further. However, Android Marshmallow’s Clock app has some extra functionality that makes it a great choice for your bedside device.

The Sleep Sounds tab provides a wide array of relaxing sleep and wake-up sounds, including outdoor audio, white noise, brown and pink noise, and more. The interface is simple and easy to navigate, and you can customize several settings for each alarm. We found it a great way to ease ourselves into the day, and our light-sleeping testers loved the gentle nudge that the two-phase alarm provided.

It is also possible to create multiple alarms, and the app will automatically update for Daylight Savings Time and other changes in time zones. Unlike some alarm clocks that force you to press a button to set the time and alarm, this one lets you adjust all the settings by swiping on the screen. There is also the option to use a swipe as a shortcut to your favorite alarm, which we found very useful.

There are also plenty of customization options, from choosing the color and font for the dial to setting a custom ringtone that plays when you set your phone down on the table at night. The clock can also function as a dimmable night light, and the display can be switched between landscape or portrait mode depending on how you hold your phone.

Another nice feature is the ability to set your alarm to a specific date and time, and we liked that you can select an option to turn on the LED screen to prevent accidental alarms when picking up the phone from the table. The snooze feature is very simple, and the alarm sound can be adjusted from a standard beeping to a range of soothing options that include birds chirping, raindrops falling, and an actual flute playing.

We also liked that the volume controls on the Marshmallow version of the Clock app have a drop-down arrow that allows you to change the ringer, alarm, and media volume independently. It’s much easier to control the volume of each than it was in Lollipop, and you can also choose between the new options of total silence, alarms only, and priority notifications.

Online Casino Alabama

Online casino alabama is a gambling site that accepts players from the state of Alabama. The sites offer high-quality games from some of the longest-lived providers in the industry. They are also regulated and adhere to strict security practices.

The state has three casinos on tribal land and offers simulcast and online pari-mutuel horse racing wagering through advance deposit wagering platforms. However, it is unlikely to legalize sports betting anytime soon. Legality

Alabama has not been a gambling-friendly state in the past, and it’s not likely to change anytime soon. That said, online casino players from the Yellowhammer State are not going to face any legal problems as long as they play at reputable sites that are licensed by state and federal authorities. In addition, they must be over the age of 21 to play and can expect to be asked for proof of identity when entering a real money gaming site.

The only gambling venues currently available in Alabama are tribal casinos and pari-mutuel horse and greyhound racing tracks, and charitable bingo games. The state constitution officially bans all other forms of gambling, and the only exception is pari-mutuel betting on horse or greyhound races. In addition, it is illegal to operate a sportsbook without a license.

Online casino games are legal for Alabama residents to play as long as they are hosted outside of the state and do not violate any federal or state laws. However, players should always choose a website that is safe to use and offers secure encryption technology. Using unsecure websites can expose your personal and financial information to hackers, which could lead to serious consequences if they are discovered by the authorities.

Social and sweepstakes casinos are a great way to enjoy online casino games while staying within the law. These websites use HTML and CSS to provide browser-based solutions that can be accessed on all types of mobile devices, regardless of their operating system. Most of these sites are compatible with both iOS and Android devices. They also offer free-to-play versions of their games so that anyone can enjoy them without risking any money.

There have been attempts to legalize online gambling in Alabama, but none of them have succeeded so far. The last attempt to pass a bill in 2023 was blocked by the state’s attorney general, who argued that daily fantasy sports (DFS) was illegal gambling. Despite these setbacks, it’s not impossible to imagine the state legalizing online casinos in the future. In the meantime, players can try their luck at a number of popular sites that offer games such as roulette, blackjack, and video poker. Games offered

The best online casinos for alabama players offer a wide variety of real money games. Some of them feature classic table games like blackjack and roulette, while others offer video slots, video poker, keno, and other popular casino games. Regardless of the game you’re looking for, these sites are safe to play at. All you need is a reliable internet connection and a compatible device. You can also make deposits and withdrawals using standard credit card payments.

Alabama is a land-based gambling state with only three brick and mortar casinos, and regulated online casino gambling is still years away. However, a growing number of online casino websites are offering excellent bonuses to lure players from the state’s borders. These offshore websites are not considered illegal under state law, but they are unlikely to attract the attention of local authorities.

In addition to offering a wide range of games, some online casinos also have no deposit bonuses for new players. These bonuses can be worth up to $100 or more, and they are a great way to try out the site without risking any of your own money. The easiest way to fund your account is with a credit card, but most online casinos also accept PayPal and cryptocurrencies.

While it isn’t possible to gamble for real money at a physical casino in Alabama, many people still enjoy playing at an online casino. These sites offer all the same games as a traditional casino, but they are much more convenient and affordable to play. You can use your mobile phone or tablet to access the site, and there are no geographic restrictions. You can also play with friends in a multiplayer gaming session.

Online casinos that offer games in alabama usually allow players to deposit with a credit card, although some may also accept bank wires and check by courier. Some of these sites also have live chat support. If you have questions about specific game rules or betting limits, contact the customer service team to ask for help.

Until Alabama legalizes online gambling, residents of the state must stick to DFS and off-shore casinos. The state’s three tribal casinos – Wind Creek Casino Atmore, Wind Creek Casino Montgomery, and Wind Creek Wetumpka – operate as Class II casinos, which means they can only offer electronic bingo machines and no table games. The Poarch Band of Creek Indians has expressed interest in a gambling compact with the state, which would allow them to expand their offerings. Payment options

Many online casino sites offer different payment options, including credit cards and e-wallets. In addition, you can play games for free without making a deposit. However, you should make sure that the site is legitimate before you start playing. If you don’t, you could end up losing your money. You should also check if the website is regulated by a recognized body. Otherwise, you may not be able to receive your winnings and your personal information might fall into the wrong hands.

Unlike the majority of US states, Alabama does not have any legal gambling sites. This is because it’s one of the least gambling-friendly states in America, with no commercial casinos or tribal Class III casinos. However, residents of the state can still play at online bingo and pari-mutuel betting sites.

There are no brick-and-mortar casinos in the state of Alabama, but there are several online casinos that accept players from the state. These casinos are operated by well-established providers and feature an excellent range of casino games. Some of them have thousands of ways to win, while others feature a more relaxed approach to gambling.

The best online casinos in Alabama will accept players from all over the world, and offer a wide variety of payment methods. Some will even let you use Bitcoin, a popular cryptocurrency that allows for fast and secure transactions. In addition, the most reputable online casinos will have SSL encryption, which protects your personal and financial data from hackers.

Another great thing about online casinos is that they are regulated by a governing body. This means that they must abide by strict regulations to protect their customers. This makes them safer and more reliable than unregulated offshore sites. If you want to gamble legally in Alabama, you should always choose a regulated site.

While there are a few online casino options available in the state of Alabama, some players are reluctant to play at these websites because of the lack of security measures. However, if you are cautious, you should not have any problems finding a safe and trustworthy online casino. Remember, it is important to find a licensed online casino, as these sites will provide you with the best possible gaming experience. poker88 Security

Whether playing for fun or betting real money, it is important to take security seriously. A reputable online casino will have the best security measures and offer support to its customers. They will also be licensed and use reliable software. The site will also have a variety of games. Lastly, the site should offer bonuses to its customers. This way, they will be able to play more games and win more prizes.

While Alabama is home to a few land-based casinos, the state’s gambling laws do not permit table games. However, residents can play online poker and sports betting with offshore sites. These operators are outside the US and do not break any local or USA laws. These sites are also regulated by third-party audits.

Most major online casinos have a wide variety of games and secure deposit methods. Some even have mobile apps that make it easy for players to play on the go. Some of these apps are ad-free and feature a clean design. They also offer a variety of games, including the latest video slots. Some have progressive jackpots, too.

Loyalty programs are another common incentive for online gamblers. These are a great way for players to earn extra cash, bonus spins, or even free slots. Some operators also offer a VIP program for loyal customers. These are great incentives for new and existing gamblers.

Despite being one of the least gambling-friendly states, there is some hope that Alabama will legalize online gambling in the future. The state is currently negotiating a deal with the Poarch Band of Creek Indians that could lead to expanded gaming options in return for annual payments to the state. This may be the first step towards legalizing online casino games in the state.

Unlike many other states, which regulate the online gaming industry, Alabama does not have any specific legislation to prevent online gambling. Nevertheless, the state’s strict gambling laws have kept it from becoming a popular gaming destination in the United States. While there are no retail casinos in the state, there are a few Indian-owned venues that host a limited range of slot machines and electronic bingo halls.

Cinsel Taciz Suçu ve Cezası

Günümüz teknoloji dünyasının bize getirdiği avantajlarının yanında dezavantajları da çok fazladır. Somut olarak işlenen suçlar artık sanal olarak işlenmeye başlanmış ve bu durum hukuki açıdan faillerin tespitini ve işlenen suçları cezalandırmayı kısmen zorlaştırmıştır. Siz de günlük hayatınızda bu ‘görünmez suçlulardan’ her an her hangi biriyle karşılaşabilir ve hiç ummadığınız bir anda suçun mağduru haline gelebilirsiniz. İşte bu konuda sizi aydınlatmak amacıyla bu makalemizde internet suçlarından cinsel taciz suçu konusunu ele alacağız.

Cinsel Taciz Suçu Nedir?

Cinsel taciz, cinsel yönden, ahlâk temizliğine aykırı olarak mağdurun başkaları tarafından rahatsız edilmesidir. Cinsel taciz suçunun oluşması için cinsel davranış ve sözlerle kişinin rahatsız edilmesi gerekmektedir. Kanun koyucu cinsel taciz suçunun meydana gelebilmesi için mağdurun cinsel amaçlı olarak taciz edilmesini yeterli görmüş, fiziksel bir temas aramamıştır. Eğer basit bir rahatsızlık değil de mağdurun bedenine bir temas söz konusuysa artık meydana gelen suç cinsel taciz olmaktan çıkıp cinsel saldırı suçuna dönüşecektir.

Cinsel Taciz suçunun kanunda hangi maddede, ne şekilde düzenlendiğini görelim: TCK Madde 105’ te, ‘Bir kimseyi cinsel amaçlı olarak taciz eden kişi hakkında, mağdurun şikâyeti üzerine, üç aydan iki yıla kadar hapis cezasına veya adlî para cezasına, fiilin çocuğa karşı işlenmesi hâlinde altı aydan üç yıla kadar hapis cezasına hükmolunur.’ Şeklinde bir ifade geçmektedir.. Görüldüğü üzere bir kişinin cinsel taciz suçunun faili olarak nitelenmesi için cinsel bir amaçla hareket ederek bir başkasına cinsel bir tacizde, bir rahatsızlıkta bulunmalıdır. Bunun için mağdurun şikayeti aranmakta ve fail 3 aydan 2 yıla kadar hapis veya adli para cezasına çarptırılmaktadır.

Cinsel Taciz Suçunun Kapsamı

Hangi tür davranışların “cinsel taciz” sayılacağı hususunda kanunda bir açıklık yoktur. Vücut dokunulmazlığını ihlal niteliği taşımayan ve mağdura rahatsızlık veren bir boyuta ulaşan her türlü cinsel davranış taciz olarak değerlendirilmelidir.

Cinsel taciz suçu; sözlü, yazılı fiillerle veya beden hareketleriyle, mağdurun vücuduna temas içermeyen, cinsel arzuları tatmine yönelik davranışlarla işlenen suçtur. Bu davranışlar; ıslık çalmak, cinsel organını göstermek, her türlü iletişim aracıyla cinsel içerikli yazılar göndermek, el kol işaretleri ile cinsel ilişkide bulunmayı önermek, soyunmak gibi hareketler ile söz ve davranışlar olabilir. Suçun internetten işlenmesi halinde ise; cinsel amaçla internetten laf atmak, cinsel ilişkiyi çağrıştırıcı emoji göndermek, cinsel organının resmini çekip atmak, ilişki teklif etmek, birlikte olmaya davet etmek, ahlak dışı imalarda bulunmak ve her tülü sapkınca söz ve davranış bu kapsamdadır.

Miras Hukuku

Miras Hukuku, miras bırakanın ölmesi veya gaipliği ile sona ermemiş olan borç ve haklara ilişkin durumları düzenleyen bir hukuk dalıdır. Miras hukukunda karşılaşılan davalar genellikle muvazaalı davalar veya mirastan mal kaçırma şeklinde olan davalar olduğundan konusunda uzman bir miras avukatı ile yola çıkmak her zaman yararınıza olacaktır.

Miras Hukukunda Bakılan Davalar

Miras hukuku Türk Medeni Kanunu (TMK) çerçevesinde ele alınır. Alesta Hukuk, miras avukatı Ankara olarak, Miras Hukuku alanında mirasçılık belgesinin alınması, mal rejimi tasfiyesine ilişkin davalar, tenkis davaları, mirasın reddi davaları, muris muvazaasına ilişkin davalar, Ölüme bağlı tasarruflar ve iptali davaları hizmetlerini uzman hukukçu ekibimizle müvekkillerimize sunmaktayız.


Vasiyetname, bir kişinin ölümünden sonra malvarlığının nasıl dağıtılacağına dair iradesini belirlemek için yazılı olarak düzenlediği belgedir. Vasiyetname, miras bırakanın kişisel tercihlerini yansıtan ve mirasının nasıl dağıtılacağına ilişkin talimatlar içeren bir belgedir. Vasiyetname, bir kişinin malvarlığını korumak, belirli kişilere veya kurumlara miras bırakmak veya diğer özel talimatlarını yerine getirmek amacıyla hazırlanır.

Vasiyetname, miras bırakanın malvarlığının nasıl paylaşılacağına dair talimatları içermesinin yanı sıra, vasiyetname aynı zamanda bir veya daha fazla mirasçı atanmasını, vasiyetnameyi iptal eden önceki vasiyetnamelerin geçersiz kılınmasını veya diğer spesifik hükümleri de içerebilir.

Vasiyetname, genellikle bir hukuk noteri veya vasiyetname hazırlama yetkisine sahip bir kişi tarafından düzenlenir ve noter huzurunda imzalanır. Bazı ülkelerde, vasiyetnamenin belirli şekil ve formaliteleri yerine getirmesi gerekebilir ve resmi olarak kaydedilmelidir.

Vasiyetnamede, miras bırakanın malvarlığının nasıl dağıtılacağına dair talimatlar açık ve anlaşılır bir şekilde ifade edilmelidir. Vasiyetnamede hukuka aykırı, ahlaki normlara uymayan veya diğer yasaklanmış hükümler yer almamalıdır.

Vasiyetname, miras bırakanın ölümünden sonra yürürlüğe girer ve mahkeme tarafından onaylandığında geçerlilik kazanır. Ancak, vasiyetname mahkemece geçersiz sayılabilir veya vasiyetnamedeki hükümlerle ilgili uyuşmazlık durumunda mahkemeye başvurulabilir. Miras

Miras, bir kişinin ölümü üzerine geriye bıraktığı malvarlığına miras denir. Bu malvarlığı, gayrimenkuller, para, taşınır ve taşınmaz mallar, banka hesapları, araçlar ve diğer mülkiyetler içerebilir. Mirasçı

Miras bırakanın ölümü halinde, mirası alacak olan kişilere mirasçılar denir. Mirasçılar, yasal mirasçılar ve isteğe bağlı mirasçılar olarak iki gruba ayrılabilir. Yasal mirasçılar, kanunen mirasçı olan kişilerdir ve örneğin eş, çocuklar, anne-baba gibi yakın akrabalardır. İsteğe bağlı mirasçılar ise miras bırakanın iradesine göre belirlenen kişilerdir.

Mirasın Paylaşımı

Mirasın paylaşımı, mirasçılar arasında malvarlığının adil bir şekilde dağıtılması sürecidir. Bu süreçte, mirasçılar arasında anlaşmazlıklar veya uyuşmazlıklar ortaya çıkabilir. Yasal düzenlemeler, mirasın paylaşımı sırasında hangi mirasçının ne kadar pay alacağını belirler. Mirasın Reddi

Bir mirasçı, mirası reddetme hakkına sahiptir. Mirasın reddedilmesi durumunda, reddeden mirasçı mirastan feragat eder ve mirasçılık hakları sona erer. Miras reddi genellikle mirasçının borçlarla uğraşmaktan veya sorumlulukları üstlenmekten kaçınmak istediği durumlarda tercih edilir.

The coronation of King Charles III on May 6th, 2023, marking a new era in the UK, coincides with another important event over a century ago. On May 6th, 1910, King Edward VII died, technically ending the Edwardian era and marking a start of a new one. In King Edward VII’s coronation in 1901, Queen Alexandra’s crown was adorned with the Koh-i-noor diamond—today, a controversial gem considered by some as symbolizing colonialism and imperialism, and which Queen Consort Camilla avoided to wear in her coronation. Interestingly, like today, the sentiments of anti-imperialism, albeit in no reference to the gem, had also echoed throughout the Edwardian era.

Although King Edward VII died in 1910, historians use the term Edwardian era to include the years onto the beginning of the First World War. Because the era was just before the Great War, some romanticize it as a golden age of a laid-back life with nostalgic summer garden parties. This created a misconceived image of a less turbulent era, while in fact it was a time of the upsurge of labor rights and suffrage.

Because the era was just before the Great War, some romanticize it as a golden age of a laid-back life with nostalgic summer garden parties.

Angels and Labors

The Industrial Revolution and urbanization during the Victorian era brought the prosperous middle class into the Edwardian era. However, class divisions (although less stringent) and wage gaps from the previous era were much intact in the new era, as was the gender ideology. It was considered inappropriate for upper- and middle-class women to work. However, advances in technologies, such as in transportation and communications, had opened more doors to Edwardian women who had to work for a living.

Thus, working class and lower middle-class women continued to play an important economic role for the country. According to the statistics of Edwardian times, one of every ten women were in paid employment. Women worked as teachers, clerks, and physicians’ assistants. With advances in photography, some well-to-do women as well worked as models. However, most working women were from poor households, who toiled in gender-segregated and low-paying jobs, and struggled in bad labor conditions, barely surviving; many also worked as domestic workers.

Like the Victorian era, the ideal middle-class woman was the “angel in the house” with servants. The typical middle-class household would have at least one live-in domestic worker, typically a woman. Interestingly, due to the middle-class lifestyle and the rise in consumerism, middle-class families even during this period were already reducing the number of children they’d like to have. Abortion (which was illegal) was the birth control method widely used.

Nevertheless, some changes late in the Victorian period provided impetus for Edwardian women’s advancement. One example is how Victorian women were able to defy society’s mores and gravity by learning to ride the bicycle. This made mobility less of an issue for most Edwardian women, especially as bicycles had become affordable to the masses. The bike was revolutionary in the sense that it gave women the freedom of movement and changed restrictive fashion. The split skirt which flows open during riding allowed Edwardian women to pedal with ease. The vehicle became a symbol of women’s liberation.

Against the backdrop of British leisure, however, was rising suffrage and labor activism ...

Suffrage and Labor

Against the backdrop of British leisure, however, was rising suffrage and labor activism, which was the momentum of the Edwardian era. The suffragette movement grew stronger and louder, despite protesters being arrested and forced fed in jail if they went on hunger strikes. Socialist thoughts began to flourish and labor strikes peaked. Between 1900 and 1911, the percentage of the working-class population involved in strikes increased more than three times.

Suffragettes were also involved in labor activism. In 1903, suffragette Emmeline Pankhurst and others established the Women's Social and Political Union (WSPU). The suffragette movement raised women workers’ issues, spurred rallies, and push for unionizing. Although not always on the same page with the suffragettes, women workers also advocated for suffrage, such as members of the Federation of Women Workers.

In fact, in this era, there were issues raised that working women still face today. The welfare of working mothers as well as nurseries and childcare for all working women were issues already being raised at this time, particularly by suffragette and socialist, Ada Nield Chew. However, not surprisingly, the campaign did not gain much traction.

Domestic labor issues also did not find wide support due to conflict of interest between poor and wealthier women. The Domestic Workers’ Union (DWU) was established in 1909 and it campaigned for a 10-hour workday and for household work to be treated like industrial labor.

The Paradox

Moreover, anti-imperialists sentiments echoed through the era similar to today. Breaking away from Victorian values, Edwardian literature grew critical of imperialism, colonialism, and the class system.

Actually, anti-imperialist sentiments in Britain had begun in the late 19th century, but the controversial Second Boer War (1899–1902) had generated an increasingly critical view from radical liberals and socialists. In addition, the exploitation, abuse, and death occurring in indentured labor of the Indian people shipped to British colonies also sparked criticism towards the Empire until the practice finally ended in 1917.

Workers’ strikes continued throughout the era as the working class became increasingly dissatisfied with labor conditions. Between 1911 and 1914, there were over 3000 workers’ strikes; hence the period is known as “the Great Labor Unrest”. It was during this period, in 1906, that the Independent Labour Party (founded in 1893) established the Labour Representation Committee, which was then named the Labour Party.

During the war, suffragists took a break to focus on their support of the country. Women worked in replacement of men to support the war effort and supposedly for this contribution, they were awarded the right to vote, albeit not universal suffrage, in 1918. However, the war had destroyed an era which many cherished.

Coined the Golden Age of British life, the Edwardian era was nonetheless a hotbed for turbulence as different groups struggled against inequalities. In short, the era was a paradox of social unrest and summer garden parties.

CW: #MentalHealth #Depression #Suicide #SelfHarm #SelfInjury #Sharps #Blood #Food #Sleep #Hygiene #Vent

So many folks out there, right now, are teetering on the edge of their own life. They've lost their balance and the poison seems more of an elixir, the panacea peace jellybeans.

I am not one of those people... not right now.

But I have been, before. And probably will be, again. Dealing with chronic mental health shit has left me with a skewed perspective. Even with the genuine healing I've done, the residue from my darkest days dirties my brain corners. I showered this week, so it isn't that bad. I've gotten groceries, made meals.... I'm actually doing well.

I haven't yet reached for the razor. Everything is fine.

So why have I been asking myself if I've been getting depressed for three weeks, having known the answer from day one?

Once you find some sense of self-regulation, everything becomes a sign:

I went to bed at 8pm. Long day, or...? I'm still up at 3am. Hereditary insomnia, or...?

I've barely eaten anything today. Been busy, or...? I can't stop snacking. Been bored, or...?

The answer actually isn't always “or you're having another episode.” But while an episode is typically visible in-the-moment, the signs leading up to one are only so in hindsight.

What I mean is, they're only signs of an episode if you have one. An episode, I mean. Otherwise, it's just the rain or too much caffeine.

I've peered over that cliff before, slipped and fallen off. Taken more than one running jump.

Having lived through myself doing this, appetite fluctuations will always seem a trivial thing. Considering the months at a time I wouldn't brush my teeth, that I floss now is an indicator of progress. It's only when I stop taking care of my personal hygiene and can't leave the house that I'll really start to worry.

Get back to me when the knife's in my hands.

But is what I consider behavioral changes a collection of juggling daggers? Are my sighs really swords that I'm swallowing?

Have I already stabbed myself? Am I numb to my own blood?

Kamu İhale Avukatı

Kamu ihale avukatı; ihale aşamalarında yaşanan ve yaşanacak tüm sorunlarda kapsamlı bir hukuki danışmanlık hizmeti sunan kişidir. Kamu İhale Hukuku, mevzuatı, işleyişi, ve uyuşmazlıkların çözümü itibariyle oldukça kapsamlı olup uzmanlık gerektiren bir alandır. Bu kapsamda karşılaşılan uyuşmazlıkların çözümünü yargı yolu olarak ikiye ayıran noktanın tespit edilmesi gerekmektedir. Kamu ihalelerinde yaşanan uyuşmazlıkların çözümü bakımından en önemli nokta sözleşmenin imzalanması aşamasıdır. İhale süreci diyebileceğimiz sözleşmenin imzalanması aşamasına kadar ki uyuşmazlıkların görüm ve çözümü idari yargının görev alanındayken sözleşmenin imzalanmasından sonra yaşanan uyuşmazlıkların görüm ve çözümü adli yargının görev alanına girmektedir.

İhale Aşaması ve İhale Avukatı

Diğer taraftan ihale aşamasına ilişkin en temel itiraz mekanizmaları ise 4734 sayılı Kanunumuzda idareye şikayet başvurusu ile Kamu İhale Kurumuna itirazen şikayet başvurusu olarak öngörülmüştür. İhale sürecindeki uyuşmazlıklarda bu başvuru yollarının tüketilmesi zorunludur. Ancak şikayet-itirazen şikayet başvurusu olmaksızın ihalenin iptal edilmesi halinde doğrudan dava açılması istisnası da bulunmaktadır. Yine ihalelere katılmaktan yasaklanmaya ilişkin resmi gazetede yayımlanan işlemler de idari yargının görev alanındadır. Ayrıca ihale süreci itibariyle geçici teminatın gelir kaydedilmesi de karşılaşılabilecek sorunlardan bir tanesidir. Bu nedenle uzman bir kamu ihale avukatı ile yolunuza devam etmek oldukça önemlidir.

Bütün bunların yanında sözleşme imzalandıktan sonra da karşılaşılabilecek problemler bulunmaktadır. Sözleşmenin yürütümü sürecinde sözleşmenin feshedilmesi, kesin teminatın gelir kaydedilmesi gibi hususlar da sözleşme aşamasında karşılaşılan sorunlardır. Nitekim sözleşmenin haksız feshine ilişkin adli yargı yerlerinde dava açılması gerekmektedir. Yahut sözleşmenin tasfiyesinin gerekip gerekmediği de aynı dava kapsamında ortaya konulmalıdır. Yine sözleşmenin yürütümü sürecine ilişkin 4735 sayılı Kanunumuzda da yasak fiil ve davranışlar ayrıca düzenlenmiştir. Fakat yukarıda bahsetmiş olduğumuz üzere sözleşme aşamasındaki fiillere ilişkin olsa da yasaklama işlemine karşı başvuru yolu idari yargıdır.
