Effective police forces that can be held accountable by those they protect are essential to national peace and security. "Integrity in Law Enforcement" lays a solid foundation for facilitating this accountability, by mandating the disclosure of law enforcement records pertaining to incidents and investigations of alleged wrongdoing. At the same time, the proposal provides police officers with a reasonable degree of confidentiality by explicitly permitting redaction of records for legitimate reasons, and declaring police records confidential by default. While this may not be a particularly far-reaching proposal in terms of the level of disclosure it provides for, it is nevertheless a necessary one.
Proposal title:'Commend Nuremgard' Author:Cretox State Purpose: To give a badge of commendation to Nuremgard for their extensive Issue-writing, which they do, unusually, without any drafting on the forum.
A fairly unique issues-related commendation compared to those that came before it, "Commend Nuremgard" targets a nation notable for issue writing without ever drafting their issues of he forum, as most writers typically do. Issues are one of the core parts of NationStates, and developing them depends on good issue writers. Nuremgard has had eighteen of their issues published, with each of them being of equally high quality. This is a substantial and praiseworthy contribution. Yet the fact that they have never participated in the community is a drawback: nearly all other nations that have been commended for their work writing issues have been leaders, mentors, and editors, helping others and building up the community. In the absence of that, this proposal stands solely on the merits of 18 issues written. The Office, therefore, will not make a determination as to whether or not this proposal should be voted for.
This one is one that I made...maybe sometime in spring or summer of 2019? Let's just say spring. Anyways, it was very much constructed as a driving mix, light on lyrics but heavy on tunes. A mix that makes me feel as if I'm flying through hyperspace as I weave through traffic as I listen...I remember one of the first times I heard this mix in my car, I was driving to friends' house for dinner, and it was raining somewhat moderately and as the rain poured down and the lights of the cars and city around sparkled through the fog and wet, I felt as if I was sizzling along the highway, soaring with the music beating in my head and singing in my ears. In other words, it's a mix that (to my ears) has a great and unique sound, although probably not to most of your tastes. It is a CD that I have never tired of listening to and has a sound that I love - electronic dance kinda? But not too heavy on the dance. Tracks 7 & 12 are particularly beautiful and I love them so. Anyways, enough of me rambling and let me present one of my all-time fav drive mixes, Torie Says:
1. Algorithm - Muse 2. Sol - Alef 3. Glue - Bicep 4. Daylight(Amir Hussain Extended Mix) - Saad Ayub & Christina Soto 5. Vale - Bicep 6. Arguru - deadmau5 7. Serij - Kolsch / Gregor Schwellenbach 8. Seventeen Years - Ratatat 9. Lex - Ratatat 10. Old Flame (Extended Mix) - Steve Allen & Sue McLaren 11. Time Stands Still - Sappheiros 12. Sail the Stormy Waters (Extended Mix) - Neev Kennedy 13. Innerbloom - Rufus du Sol
