For a vehicle to be considered “operated” an individual only needs to take an action, rather successful or unsuccessful, in preparation toward operating the vehicle and on the roadway. In Whistler, the court held that the only requirement for “operating a vehicle” is taking an action to try to operate the vehicle. The court found that past precedents revealed that it was not necessary for the attempt to operate the vehicle to be successful. The court ruled with these precedents declaring that any action toward operating a vehicle was sufficient in finding that someone “operated a vehicle” in accordance with driving under the influence for the Texas statute. Also, in Morris, the court found that without an action displaying that a person put forth effort to attempt to operate the vehicle and if the vehicle was not on a roadway then the defendant could not be “operating” a vehicle under the

As the United States faces many changes, every state under its regime is affected. This is why Texas always seems to be facing issue after issue. According to current college students attending different universities in the state of Texas, the problems Texas has recently been facing ranges from: high rates of accidents caused by highway constructions; influx of illegal immigrants crossing over especially here in Brownsville; to the smuggling of drugs into the country since the Gulf of Mexico is so close. However, surprisingly each of these students living in different cities within the state have expressed that the most worrisome current issue Texas has been struggling with is funding the educational system.
The Texas Voter ID Law was put passed in 2011 and implemented in 2013.The law states that in order to vote each citizen must present one of the seven forms of identification. Any of the following would be considered an acceptable form of identification: Texas driver license, Texas personal identification card, a Texas Election identification certificate, Texas concealed handgun license, a United States passport, a United state military identification card that has the person’s photo, and a United States citizenship certificate that has the person’s photo. I believe that the Texas Voter ID Law is consistent with the federal standards, the law will not affect the voter turnout by much in Texas, and I do think that requiring a photo ID to vote is a good policy. The U.S. Constitution and federal laws place limits on the state’s power to establish
DISCRETIONARY TRUSTS AND POWERS Discretionary trusts are the second area of trust law where the three certainties, and in particular the certainty of objects, apply. These trust differ from those of a fixed nature in that the property to be given to the beneficiaries are at the discretion of the trustee to allot as they see fit. Prior to 1971 the courts used the same test they did for fixed trust. However, the case of McPhail v Doulton utilized and applied a new test to deal with discretionary trusts. Powers fall under discretionary trust and are not held to the same standard as discretionary trusts.

However, there is one war that is one of the most horrible and it has gone unnoticed. The topic of abortion has been going on for decades now, but most Americans do not recognize that it is truly a war, right here in our country. This war has claimed the lives of over 60 million in the past forty-two years (CDC). The war of abortion is what has been unnoticed for a while now. This misfortune is as shocking as anything terrorists can perpetrate, because it hits at the core of humanity and our country.
There is a Problem with Standardized Testing In today’s education department, the success of a student is determined by their ability to excel on a standardized test. However, society is starting to debate whether standardized tests should actually determine whether a student passes to the next level. In both Anaya Kamenetz’s book and TV documentary, The Test: Why Our Schools Are Obsessed with Standardized Testing but You Don’t Have to Be, she describes problems in within the school system, ultimately leading the corruption and mistrust of the school system. The book review and Book TV have a lot of similarities and differences regarding the way the author’s views are expressed.
The role standardized testing plays in our national education system has been steadily increasing in the past couple of decades and is a point of strong criticism in our society today. Since the passing of No Child Left Behind in 2002, standardized tests are the most valued tool employed by the federal government to evaluate student achievement and school effectiveness. In three separate articles “Standardized Testing Has Negatively Impacted Public Schools,” by Bobbie Solley, “Study Shows Standardized Testing Is Overwhelming Nation’s Public Schools,” by Lyndsey Layton, and “Disappearing Act: End The Testing Fixation Before It Erases More Meaningful Education,” by Virginia Myers, the authors stress that standardized testing does not reflect
