High Quality Content by WIKIPEDIA articles! A safety or safety touch is a type of score in American football and Canadian football and is worth two points (with one very rare exception). In American football, it is the only means by which a team not in possession of the football can score points. A safety may occur in a variety of ways, most commonly when an opponent in possession of the football is tackled in his own end zone. The ironic term "safety" for an event that is, in fact, perilous for the team to which it occurs, is a relic of the earliest days of college football during which a team which possessed the ball near its own goal line could down it in its own endzone in order to have the ball replaced at its own 25-yard line.

ShorttitleZaiyi or Prince Duan (1856-1922) was a Manchu statesman during the late Qing dynasty. An advisor and close ally of Empress dowager Cixi, whose niece he had married, he was an opponent of the Hundred Days' Reform.

Now-a-days Public Interest Litigation (PIL) is the most growing arena of law. Previously only the aggrieved person has the locus standi to go before the court for remedy. PIL is an exception to this. Due to social, economic and political reasons the disadvantaged sector of the society cannot go to the court for their grievance. it has been accepted that any individual person acting as pro bono publico may bring an action before the court on the ground of public interest. With the passage of time the question arises whether PIL can be filed for the interest of an individual? When any injustice has been occurred to an individual person who cannot file an action due to his lack of fund or knowledge about his remedy or having a powerful opponent, whether he should be left without remedy? Such will also mean that some persons having done some injustices are let free to violate the law. It is also contrary to the public interest. In such cases whether a PIL should be rejected merely because there is grievance of a single person not a group of people? The practice has begun to entertain such PIL giving a wide interpretation of public interest in limited cases.

Selected Short Works by Klaus Mann makes available for the first time a number of pieces by the author of Mephisto and The Turning Point. Klaus Mann (1906-1949) was an early opponent of Nazism, an émigré to the United States who enlisted in the U.S. Army to fight the German fascists, and the eldest son of Nobel laureate Thomas Mann. The works in this collection include brand new translations of a novella about the final days of Ludwig II (Bavaria's Mad King Ludwig) and an essay challenging the homophobic maneuvers of certain enemies of German fascism. In addition, Selected Short Works by Klaus Mann includes a drama and three short stories written in English, all but one of which are appearing for the first time in print. One of the pieces in this volume, "Speed, a Story," was considered by Christopher Isherwood to be Klaus Mann's best writing. Taken as a whole, this collection suggests Klaus Mann should, at a minimum, be considered a German-American author. Although his infatuation with and his hopes for the United States were short-lived, while in America, Klaus Mann dedicated himself to writing exclusively in English. The final four works in this collection make a rich contribution to twentieth-century American letters. These selected works will appeal to those with an interest in lesbian and gay history, exilic studies, and twentieth-century German and American literature.
