It’s “now or never” for our oceans: Part One on the Global Ocean Treaty

Petchary's Blog

In just two days, one of the most critical UN conferences in the past decade or so will come to an end. It is likely to be the last in a series of discussions leading up to the signing of a Global Ocean Treaty in New York. It’s the fifth and final round of negotiations. Now, the question is: will such a treaty be comfortably and agreeably signed, incorporating the needs and priorities of the global “North and South”? Or will it be a watered-down version (pardon the pun!)? And importantly, what actions will result?

Greenpeace USA activists project scenes of beauty and fragility onto New York’s iconic Brooklyn Bridge. On the eve of the IGC5 negotiations at the United Nations where governments are meeting to negotiate a new Global Ocean Treaty, which will determine the fate of the oceans.

The email shows NARA officials were concerned about Trump keeping dozens of boxes of official records even before he left the White House — concerns that only grew in the coming months as Trump repeatedly declined to return the records. It also showed that Trump’s lawyers had concerns about Trump taking the documents and agreed that the boxes should be returned — at least according to the top Archives officials — while Trump kept the documents.

Public Financial Knowledge Infrastructure: Is Your Debt Time-barred?

Context, Critical Thinking, Continuous Learning: Project Do Better

   This basic post is meant to be useful for anyone wishing to give a 5-minute seminar at the Metro/Trolley/Bus stop.
Please share widely.
Now that we know what a Statute of Limitations
is,  statutes-of-limitations and how to get the  Validated information  on your debt, you have the information that a legal expert needs to figure out if your debt is still enforceable in your state (or DC).
You should also look at your credit report, since debts are often listed by type there, as well.
1.  revolving  or open, is credit card;
2.  written contract is an apartment lease, for example;
3.  verbal contract;
4.  promissory notes.
