Thinking about it further, I first encountered the requirement to include a middle initial when I went into the Army. Many times something would require sign with what the Army called my "payroll signature" , i.

Who Was Elvis Presley?

Without going back to do extensive research, I don't remember news reports including the age of persons involved unless it had some significance to the story - a boy 12 who took the family car to go joy-riding with his friends or a person 37 who suddenly dropped dead of a heart attack. If it didn't add anything to understanding the story, it wasn't mentioned. That can be a perfectly reasonable response, though, because the cost of licensing can be quite high. I lean towards the idea that copyright should be the exclusive right to publish, and no more.

You shouldn't be able to use it to prevent publication completely. In other words, either the copyrighted material is available to the public for a reasonable price, or the material is public domain ie, the price is between zero and reasonable. IIRC the reason for citing the person's age in British newspapers is because it drastically reduces the newspaper's risk of being sued for libel.

Suppose John Brown, aged 27, has been convicted for kiddie fiddling, and the paper prints this, but omits his name: then John Brown, aged 42, can plausibly sue for damages to his good name. But if the report includes the age, then it narrows the field considerably. Charlie Stross IIRC the reason for citing the person's age in British newspapers is because it drastically reduces the newspaper's risk of being sued for libel. I think under US libel laws the other "John Brown" would have to prove the newspaper had knowingly made an actual false accusation or mis-identification.

I think the legal defence is called "absence of malice". Hence the title of the Robert Redford film. Robert Prior I think the legal defence is called "absence of malice". I believe the term of art used by U.

News, sport and opinion from the Guardian's US edition

It applies to a "public figure" suing for defamation slander or libel. Public figures have to prove the publisher had "knowledge that it was false or with reckless disregard of whether it was false or not". Plus they have to demonstrate the defamation caused them "actual damage". They only have to prove the defamatory statement was made and that the statement is false. Just giving the name of a person convicted of a crime wouldn't make that naming defamatory of any other person sharing the name under U. Congratulations on the beginning of a new Scottish Independence campaign?

Or too soon to tell? Well, I think that should have been baked in by the Palace of Oathbreakers telling the people of Scotland "You can only remain in the EU if you vote to remain part of the UK" in , and then in saying "Scotland must leave the EU because Englandshire wants to". My favorite is Dutch physicist Gerardus 't Hooft. Yeah, about that As far as I can tell, it has only names, and the TSA agent can interpret that in any manner that amuses them. I've read of them stopping a 10 month old infant this year.

My favorite was when they stopped someone named David Thomas Then, not long after, they tried to stop Teddy Kennedy Ted Kennedy, from flying. That didn't work at all Yes there is a no fly list. And it is at the top level name based. And so what has to happen is when your name matches you have to step aside and show you are not the person on the list.

And yes it gets into some stupid stuff but there is a rule. If the passenger trips the system they MUST be checked. Otherwise eventually some harried or having a bad day TSA person will just waive through someone they shouldn't. Not gonna happen. Although bizarrely some young DT supporters want such not understanding how this is "government run amuck and overreach and As I trail off into sarcasm.

My family got to see how it worked back 15 years ago not as well as now when someone got on the list with the same name as my tween aged son.

So for a year we couldn't fully check in early for flights if he was on the reservation. Which torqued my wife to no end as she works for an airline and this put a real crimp into our benefit travel usage. Something that would let you pass from one port of call to another. Like a "port-pass" or something. If only there were such a thing. I think we might eventually get such an ID card system, but the government won't call it an ID card.

It will start out as some kind of a pass that you can apply for that will pre-clear you with the TSA and other "security" agencies. It will be "voluntary". You don't have to apply for the pass , but having one will make it so much easier to travel that anyone who travels by air will want to apply for it. Once a sufficient segment of the flying public has accepted having the pass , it will be made mandatory. You'll have to have the pass to fly anywhere in the U.

Note: if passenger rail still exists in the U. A friend of mine, who was originally from Port Dover Ontario, goes by his middle name and has done so since he was a child. Apparently not only was his father named Archie, but so were a few kids at school, so it was just easier all round to go by his middle name David. Oddly enough, Dave does the best covers of Stan Rodgers songs that I have heard. If you are into filk you probably know him.

Driving license. With biometrics that conform to international standards. They're out there already, just not universally issued within the United States because driver licenses are a state level responsibility. Look for some federal guidelines on data sharing between driver licensing bureaus, under a gloss of "making it easier for police to check licenses are current for out-of-state visitors".

As for getting on an Amtrak service, you already pass under the eyes of security staff as you go through the gate onto the platform, and they're legally required to check ID here in the UK, you just put your ticket through a reader in the barrier, there's no queueing and no inspection by humans, and you can still buy them with cash. You can't have an overarching theme that experience entails a loss of innocence? Phantom of the Opera had an underlying theme of Don Juan Triumphant.

Chinese high-speed rail requires complete airline-style baggage checks as well as ID check before the passengers can go to the secure platform and board their train. In contrast Japanese shinkansen simply requires a ticket which can be purchased for cash, no ID required or pass to clear the barrier and get on the train. There may or may not be ticket checks on board, usually there aren't.

A day after reading your comments, I searched the site of Juliet E. One thing about writing a book set in the modern world is the challenge of finding character names. The business of naming epic fantasy characters is straightforward by comparison. This is particularly important when it comes to villains. The article of the Guardian concerning Jack Arnott cited in that blog is also full of anecdotes on this problem.

Or you can use a passport.

How To Build Your Vision From The Ground Up - Q&A With Bishop T.D. Jakes

This is squarely in the category of harassment of poor people who don't have a stable residence. They can drive with a regular drivers license but they will not be able to fly. It's also about coercing states, some of which still don't have complying licenses. Sadly the people representing those states all have passports so are still able to fly to Washington, but I expect there will be public pressure once the ban hits.

For poor people it's partly just about the cost of the new license as much the need to document an address, but I vaguely recall reading that some states have stricter requirements for that documentation specifically aimed at poor people viz, the state looked at which forms of documentation poor people used and voted not to accept them.

I think I read a report of the ensuing lawsuit. Matching names can be an issue even in fantasy writing, especially if you unconsciously grabbed more than one from another fantasy you read.

There was a webfiction writer who I asked if she was doing fanfic - though her plot didn't match she'd grabbed two character names and a location name from another. Apparently she'd taken all three names without realising it. I've been contacted a couple of times over the years by readers who were surprised to trip over their own name in one of my books. Even though I'd never heard of them. I don't google every name, but you can bet I checked carefully on the name of the big bad in "Lost Boys", who at one point is described thuswise: His reputation became such that pedigreed parents warned their debutante daughters away from him despite his near-billionaire status.

Marrying for money was all very well, but not if it meant marrying a drug overdose flying in loose formation with several strains of sexually transmitted disease hitherto unknown to science. Lesser bad guys and henchmen you can probably skimp on, but actually naming a real person then pinning that particular tail on the donkey? Nope nope nope That would, oddly to modern ears, be totally plausible. Just as Liz is a contraction of Elizabeth, Tiffany is a contraction of Theophania, a fairly common name if you go back several centuries.

The contraction has generally replaced the original in modern usage and is quite common in the teen cohort at present, but Princess Tiffany and her ladies-in-waiting could totally be a thing. More personal example: I have an elder sister.
