Studying for the LSAT / Re: RC Tribal Question

You're right it was in the passage... first paragraph... regarding the explicit rights covered in the constitution.  Land right, self governance, and rights to ritual (was there a fourth)

wasnt the answer to the question about what is explicity mentioned in the amendment something about naming which tribes it protects?  this was definitely IN the amendment (the specific names of several tribes were given), and it was definitely an answer choice.

Inuit, Meti, and ______

Wasn't there a question about what they suggest to do to fix it? I remember one of the options talking about higher courts deciding or something. I don't remember, grrrr.

Yes… the Ottawa (or Ontario) court interpreted land rights in this instance more conservatively than in other modern instances.   The author felt that the Supreme Court would better address the issue.

This is what happened in real life… didn’t the header sentence say that this article was published in the late 80’s.  I think TIME Magazine was cited in the back of the test booklet…. anybody want to look it up?

PS -  The only issue with Oral tradition is that the O court excluded any traditions made after English colonization of the territory making it impossible for the aboriginals to prove to the O court that the tradition should be protected under the constitution.  The author felt that this requirement was unreasonable and would not be upheld by the Supreme Court.  It was not that he wanted oral tradition in it was that he didn’t like the pre/post colonization requirement.

ok someone give me a quick synopsis of the meteor/ice age question please?
something about how teh extinction won't lead to ice age? i completely forgot the question, so i want to know whta the answer choices there were out there..


I think the questions dealt with the correlation between major meteor events/disasters and ice ages.  Major meteor events/disasters have been tied to the onset of ice ages.  However, some ice ages have started without there being a major meteor event/disaster immediately preceding.  Also, some major meteor events/disasters have occurred without ice ages immediately following.

Was the child research one the HGH (Human Growth Hormone) one?

I flip flopped between the long term effect of HGH on children have not been proven

and

The research is not being done on an actual disease but rather a possible treatment for several diseases.

I recall the argument saying something like after an author dies, his unpublished work and letters are often published by his heirs even though the quality of those unpublished works were often poor or not the same standard as his published works.  I think the conclusion went on to say unpublished work after the author dies should be best left unpublished.

I thought the question was a weaken type.

I couldn’t decide between

Often authors dislike work they have just finished but they later like it OR Many works publishes posthumously would have been published by the author if they had the time.

Gosh I just took it today (accommodated testing) so I should remember this.  The baby boomer one was

Economist:
Analysts think that baby-boomer will retire and place their money into the stock market. If they were right these analysts would have much to gain.  However, they are wrong.  [X reason] will make it impossible for companies to charge so much per share thus, with share price lower; baby boomers will place their money into other investments.

Paraphrased... but I think that's it… if that’s the one you’re talking about.
