He had Jesus flogged, and handed him over to be crucified. Falling on their knees, they paid homage to him. Then they led him out to crucify him. Dividing up his clothes, they cast lots to see what each would get.
Many other women who had come up with him to Jerusalem were also there. Summoning the centurion, he asked him if Jesus had already died. Then he rolled a stone against the entrance of the tomb.

Mark Mark 14 Mark Footnotes: Mark Some manuscripts include here words similar to Luke Ishmael's reality has shifted so much that his squad is now his only family and the forest and villages they capture are his home.
His only thought is to kill or be killed. His gun both provides for and protects him. His thoughts and actions have become so simple that days blend into one another, and he maintains no concept of time. In January ofwhen Ishmael is 15 years old, his world is again changed. Ishmael and his friends are lined up, and the lieutenant chooses the youngest ones to be released from their duty.
The lieutenant says that they've served their brotherhood and their country well, but he doesn't give them any other explanation for their dismissal.
The boys are taken to a fenced compound in Freetown, Sierra Leone's capital. They are given food and beds with clean linens.
They look at the beds as if they don't know what they are and they consume the food in seconds. Other groups of boy soldiers are there, and they begin fighting them until they realize that they, too, are from the army.
Later, a group of boy soldiers from the RUF are brought in and a war between the groups breaks out. The MPs and nationals try to break up the fight, but Mambu overtakes them and steals a gun. He begins shooting rebels; six people are killed before more MPs arrive and break up the battle by force.
Ishmael and the remaining boy soldiers are taken to Benin Home, a rehabilitation center, but they still can't understand why.
Ishmael's headaches return as his body begins withdrawing from drugs. Ishmael's loyalty as a soldier is fierce when this chapter opens, which is why his dismissal from service is so painful. He admires the lieutenant and seeks his approval as a father figure. The theme of confusion and fear returns when the boys are taken from their squad. Ishmael's journey out of the war makes him anxious and afraid. He doesn't know why he's being sent away, and he doesn't know where they are going.After the intensity of the previous three chapters, Wilde interjects this chapter as a dramatic pause.
Like a light interlude in a play following profound action, Chapter 15 is more style than substance. The opening scene of the chapter is a dinner party at Lady Narborough's. Dorian arrives only an hour or so after Campbell's departure from his home.
At first, Dorian is bored with the party. It includes a flirtatious but elderly hostess and several guests whose only distinction is their mediocrity. Dorian is relieved when Lord Henry arrives. At dinner, Dorian eats nothing but drinks several glasses of champagne; in fact, his thirst increases as he drinks, perhaps an allusion to his unquenchable passions. Dorian manages to mutter that he has not been in love for a whole week. Despite the clever table talk, Dorian is distracted and irritable.
For example, when Lord Henry questions him about his whereabouts the previous evening, Dorian becomes agitated and gives an excessively defensive and lengthy response. Lord Henry notes that there must be something wrong with Dorian, but he is characteristically unconcerned.
Dorian continues to feel out of sorts, and he leaves the party early, asking Lord Henry to make excuses to the hostess for him. Again, readers should note that Dorian is so preoccupied with his secret life that he can't enjoy the pleasures for which he has given up his soul. Now Dorian has the weight of two secrets to bear — the portrait and Basil's death. At home, Dorian burns Basil's hat and bag, the last of the evidence that Basil was ever there.
He tries to relax, but a Florentine cabinet between two windows catches his attention. He stares at the cabinet, lights a cigarette, and then throws it away.
Finally, he walks to the cabinet and removes a small Chinese box. In the box is a "green paste, waxy in lustre, the odour curiously heavy and persistent. Dorian dresses as a commoner, hails a cab, and takes off toward the river. Parma violet a variety cultivated for its fragrance; after Parma, a city in northern Italy.

The purpose of Chapter 15, and the Model Law on which it is based, is to provide effective mechanisms for dealing with insolvency cases involving debtors, assets, claimants, and other parties of interest involving more than one country.
This general purpose is realized through five objectives specified in the statute: 1 to promote cooperation between the United States courts and parties of interest and the courts and other competent authorities of foreign countries involved in cross-border insolvency cases; 2 to establish greater legal certainty for trade and investment; 3 to provide for the fair and efficient administration of cross-border insolvencies that protects the interests of all creditors and other interested entities, including the debtor; 4 to afford protection and maximization of the value of the debtor's assets; and 5 to facilitate the rescue of financially troubled businesses, thereby protecting investment and preserving employment.
Generally, a chapter 15 case is ancillary to a primary proceeding brought in another country, typically the debtor's home country. As an alternative, the debtor or a creditor may commence a full chapter 7 or chapter 11 case in the United States if the assets in the United States are sufficiently complex to merit a full-blown domestic bankruptcy case.
In addition, under chapter 15 a U. An ancillary case is commenced under chapter 15 by a "foreign representative" filing a petition for recognition of a "foreign proceeding.
Chapter 15 gives the foreign representative the right of direct access to U. The petition must be accompanied by documents showing the existence of the foreign proceeding and the appointment and authority of the foreign representative. After notice and a hearing, the court is authorized to issue an order recognizing the foreign proceeding as either a "foreign main proceeding" a proceeding pending in a country where the debtor's center of main interests are located or a "foreign non-main proceeding" a proceeding pending in a country where the debtor has an establishment, 2 but not its center of main interests.
Immediately upon the recognition of a foreign main proceeding, the automatic stay and selected other provisions of the Bankruptcy Code take effect within the United States. The foreign representative is also authorized to operate the debtor's business in the ordinary course.
The U. Through the recognition process, chapter 15 operates as the principal door of a foreign representative to the federal and state courts of the United States. Once recognized, a foreign representative may seek additional relief from the bankruptcy court or from other state and federal courts and is authorized to bring a full as opposed to ancillary bankruptcy case. In addition, the representative is authorized to participate as a party of interest in a pending U.
Chapter 15 also gives foreign creditors the right to participate in U. It also requires notice to foreign creditors concerning a U. One of the most important goals of chapter 15 is to promote cooperation and communication between U. This goal is accomplished by, among other things, explicitly charging the court and estate representatives to "cooperate to the maximum extent possible" with foreign courts and foreign representatives and authorizing direct communication between the court and authorized estate representatives and the foreign courts and foreign representatives.
If a full bankruptcy case is initiated by a foreign representative when there is a foreign main proceeding pending in another countrybankruptcy court jurisdiction is generally limited to the debtor's assets that are located in the United States. The limitation promotes cooperation with the foreign main proceeding by limiting the assets subject to U.
Chapter 15 also provides rules to further cooperation where a case was filed under the Bankruptcy Code prior to recognition of the foreign representative and for coordination of more than on foreign proceeding. Adoption is pending in the United Kingdom and Australia, as well as other countries with significant international economic interests.
Notes A "foreign proceeding" is a "judicial or administrative proceeding in a foreign country A "foreign representative" is the person or entity authorized in the foreign proceeding "to administer the reorganization or liquidation of the debtor's assets or affairs or to act as a representative of such foreign proceeding.Which guides should we add?

In great detail, Solomon explains how sugar cane is harvested. Just like his earlier detailed description of how cotton is harvested, Solomon explains the process of harvesting sugar cane to show that his narrative is true, and his depiction of slavery accurate. Active Themes. Truth and Justice. Once again, Epps is cruel to his slaves seemingly for no other reason than because he can be. He gives his slaves a meager three days off at Christmas even though the norm at most plantations is twice that because he seems to want to restrict the joy and limited freedom that comes with the holidays.
Racism and Slavery. At these feasts, Solomon plays the fiddle. Solomon illustrates how music saved him in emotional and physical ways. His fiddle brings him emotional comfort and a sense of companionship while also giving him an excuse to not work in the fields on certain days, allowing him a brief measure of relief.See our picks.
Title: Chapter 15 14 Feb Lucas continues to look into Zoe's death. He calls out for Tom Hammerschmidt and tells him the truth about Francis. However, he is told to go and see a psychiatrist. Francis officially becomes the VP of the US. His first appointment is to give a medal to a man that Claire knew in college. Jackie comes one step closer to taking Francis' old position.
Lucas enters the deep web and hires a hacker to get him phone records. Written by Andreea D. Liked to loved all of the episodes from Season 1, even with a slight finding its feet quality that most shows have when they first start, so it was a consistent more than solid and mostly brilliant season.
Was eagerly anticipating the Season 2 opener "Chapter 14" and was blown away by it, an example to all season openers and how to do it. Also found it up to this point of 'House of Cards' one of the show's best episodes along with "Chapter 11" and the first two David Fincher-directed episodes.
After loving "Chapter 14" that much, found myself rather disappointed by Season 2's second episode "Chapter 15", and maybe the high expectations has something to do with it. It is far from a bad episode, actually thought on the most part it was very good. Just that it wasn't outstanding, and it is hard to not expect that after such a high quality previous episode and that the second episode of the previous, the first, season was equal in quality to the season, and show, premiere.
Ranking it with the previous episodes, consider this the second weakest, the weakest being the still decent "Chapter 8". Am really hoping that nothing here comes over as judgmental or too stupid. Like "Chapter 14", "Chapter 15" does excel in follows on from previous events and builds upon them, all without being repetitive, introduces new conflicts and such and it does feel like the storytelling and characterisation are advancing. Do like the darker tone well in comparison to Season 1the mystery aspect, which does intrigue but has a long way to go with it being in its infancy, and what it has to say about politics, which had a cynical edge and is intelligently handled without falling too much into heavy-handedness.
Carl Franklin directs his final episode of four, having directed "Chapters" 10, 11 and 14Again providing alert yet accomodating direction and showing that he had a sure hand and knew what he was doing.
Visually, as ever "Chapter 15" looks slick and stylish, with lots of atmosphere with a darker look and no trouble with cohesion. Nothing to complain about there. The music knew when to have presence and when to tone things down to let the dialogue and characters properly speak. The writing is sharp and has bite and the story does interest on the most part, Frank and Claire's plots being the most successful.
The mystery aspect is interesting but as said has only really just been introduced. Frank is as ever a juicy and fascinating character and a good job is done with Claire. The most successful of the new characters to me is Jackie. The acting is very good to great, Kevin Spacey taking top honours but a big shout out too goes to the fierce steel of Molly Parker as Jackie. However, the pace doesn't quite have the lustre and energy of the previous episode.
More problematic is that from personal opinion although Frank is such a juicy character, and a truly great one, he dominates the episode too much and it doesn't properly allow the rest of the characters to shine or the conflict to be as tense as the conflicts in Season 1 and the previous episode. Despite that being a big problem the numerous good things about "Chapter 15" were so great that it is hard to be too hard on it.
Very good episode, but a big part of me felt that it should have been outstanding. Sign In.Chapter 15 is probably the least used and least-known type of bankruptcy although Chapter 9bankruptcy for municipalities is likely a close second. When a foreign debtor or other related parties file bankruptcy in another country, Chapter 15 gives the foreign debtor a way to gain access to US Bankruptcy Courts for the purpose of administering assets or taking action for the debtor in this country.
The number of cases filed under Chapter 15 is still small. Here are the number of cases filed for the last few years. See 11 U. A Chapter 15 proceeding is generally not the main bankruptcy proceeding relating to the foreign individual or entity. The Chapter 15 proceeding is usually, therefore, considered ancillary or secondary. The main proceeding typically takes place in the foreigner's home country.
Chapter 15, Title 11, United States Code
A foreign company may choose to file a Chapter 15 proceeding if an insolvency case is pending in another country. A Chapter 15 case must be filed in the US Bankruptcy Court by a foreign representative requesting the recognition of a foreign proceeding. The petition must prove that the foreign proceeding exists. After the filing, the Bankruptcy Court will designate the foreign proceeding as either "foreign main proceeding" or "foreign non-main proceeding," with the difference being that in a non-main proceeding, the debtor does not have its main interests in that country.
Upon the recognition of a foreign main proceeding, the automatic stay goes into effect in the United States to protect the assets of the foreign debtor that are within the United States. Once the foreign representative initiates the Chapter 15 case, it can seek further relief from the bankruptcy court, including the filing of a full bankruptcy petition, such as under Chapter 7.
The US Bankruptcy Court in a Chapter 15 proceeding is generally limited in the scope of its power to affect only the assets of the foreign entity or persons that are within the United States.
Therefore, the US Court defers to many actions of the foreign court. But the US Bankruptcy Court can authorize the appointment of a trustee or examiner to act in the other country on behalf of the bankruptcy estate in the United States.
The foreign representative is also authorized to conduct the US business of the company in the ordinary course. The US Bankruptcy Court may also offer additional aid to a foreign representative—but only in circumstances where the Bankruptcy Court determines that the laws of the foreign court did not violate US laws or public policy and that the foreign court is fair.
If the US Bankruptcy Court determines that the foreign court is lacking in this regard, it can offer additional assistance to the foreign national.
