    The Raging Power Desire in the “Private Utopia”

      ”Privatopia” (Privatopia) is a book published by American political scientist Irving McKinsey in 1994. “Private Utopia” is a self-created word, and the subtitle of the book gives detailed notes: The rise of homeowner associations and private government in housing.   In the United States, there are countless associations, all of which are typical non-governmental organizations. Then, why does Professor Mai call homeowners’ associations private Utopias and associate them with nondescript so-called “private governments”?   In a 2000 case, the California Court of Appeals referred to homeowners’ associations as “secondary municipalities,” “quasi-governments,” and “micro-governments” because they “regulate (the homeowners’) daily lives in many ways.” “, “Parallel to the municipal government in almost all…

    Reduced oxygen supply may have been the cause of Earth’s first mass extinction, study finds

      A new US study has traced the cause of the first known mass extinction of animals at the end of the Ediacaran period about 550 million years ago to a reduction in global oxygen supply. The research has been published in the Proceedings of the National Academy of Sciences of the United States of America.   The study, led by Scott Evans, a postdoctoral researcher in Virginia Tech’s Department of Earth Sciences, shows that about 80 percent of animals became mass extinctions during that time period, with animals that depend on large amounts of oxygen appearing to be particularly hard hit hit. This suggests that the extinction event was environmentally controlled,…
