Galileo became an accomplished lutenist himself and would have learned early from his father a scepticism for established authority,  the value of well-measured or quantified experimentation, an appreciation for a periodic or musical measure of time or rhythm, as well as the results expected from a combination of mathematics and experiment. Three of Galileo's five siblings survived infancy.
Readers who are following the Lori Drew case know that back on July 2Judge Wu "tentatively" ruled that he was going to overturn the jury verdict. At the time, however, Judge Wu stressed that his decision was not final, and that he would eventually issue an opinion with his final ruling.
Late yesterday, Judge Wu finally handed down his opinion. You can read it here: Lori Drew, Final Opinion. Judge Wu did in fact grant the defense motion to dismiss, ending the prosecution against Drew and overturning her misdemeanor convictions. To my surprise, it seems that Friday's final ruling in the case has been entirely ignored by the press; I couldn't find any reference to it on the web.
The reasoning of the opinion is that whatever unauthorized access means, it cannot mean mere violation of Terms of Service without more. Such a reading of the statute would render the statute unconstitutionally void for vagueness because it would give the government almost unlimited power to prosecute any Internet user and wouldn't give citizens sufficient notice as to what of their Internet conduct was criminal.
I'll probably have some more comments on the opinion soon, but for now I just wanted to post it so others could see it. As you might guess, given all the pro bono efforts I put into this case, I am very pleased by the result.
This was an extremely important test case for the scope of the computer crime statutes, with tremendously high stakes for the civil liberties of every Internet user.
I feel fortunate to have been able to argue the motion in Januaryand to have done what I could to bring about the correct result. Finally, I'm working on a draft article on the use of vagueness and overbreadth to challenge overly broad interpretations of 18 U.
I'll post the draft when I have something ready enough to share.Galileo vs Roman Catholic Church and Leonardo Da Vinci vs Roman Catholic Church The disagreement between Galileo and the Catholic Church began back in the 17th century when Galileo began offering observations that supported Copernicus’s theory that the planet Earth was revolving around the sun rather then the sun revolving around the Earth - Galileo.
Galileo vs. The Bible Galileo, Science, and the Church by Jerome J. Langford Essay - Galileo, Science, and the Church by Jerome J. Langford Science and the church, two things that you would not ordinarily think would go together until until Galileo came along. Galileo, a man that stuck his head out to the world, but especially to the church.
Essay about Galileo vs. Church Galileo is viewed as the father of modern science because he made and tested theories which we still go by in the current years.
In the present day we are thought and live by the heliocentric theory. The thunder-and-lightning example seems like a bad comparison for this kind of situation, in that the false claim is (1) easily observable to be untrue, and (2) utterly useless to the society that propagates it.
