Uniform Act, the Michigan Supreme Court in Miller found that the legislature's use
of the language “contributions of tangible things of economic value” indicated an
intent that survivors' loss benefits should correspond to damages for economic
loss recoverable under the state's wrongful death act. The court noted that
wrongful death act damages focus on the actual financial loss incurred by the
survivors as a result of the death of the decedent and that the decedent's wage or
salary ...

To objects of either kind we indifferently attribute the terms high and low, right
and left, and such like, denoting the position or situation of things; but then we
must well observe that the position of any object is determined with respect only
to objects of the same sense. We say any object of touch is high or low, according
as it is more or less distant from the tangible earth: and in like manner we
denominate any object of sight high or low, in proportion as it is more or less
distant from the ...

Sure facts are tangible, gripping, clinching, and hard. Together, sight and touch
provide the basis for grasping things, which is at the foundation of material life.
Like mass and folk, touch and sight are not exclusive, although one may
dominate and have a function different from the other. We argue with, and against
, words, but find it hard to deny the evidence of tangible things. Setting the pace
in 1662 for this attitude, the august Royal Society of London declared its scientific
intention of ...

The book tells of the “things they carried,” and as such tells of the literal items—
photographs and rations and socks and so on—as well as the various weights
and less tangible items—stories, memories, hopes, curses, guilts, and
associations. The cumulative effect of the episodes is the reader's understanding
of what the men endured, how they changed, and, to an extent, how things turned
out at the conclusion of U.S. presence in Southeast Asia. A summary is perhaps
most useful if it ...

121 FISA Orders for Business Records and Other Tangible Things Section 215 of
the USA PATRIOT Act, one of the three amendments to FISA scheduled to expire
on February 28, 2011, was perhaps the act's most controversial provision. It
expanded the authority for FISA orders compelling records and other tangible
things in two ways. First, it enlarged the scope of materials that may be sought.
Prior to the enactment of the USA PATRIOT Act, FISA authorized court orders for
access to ...

Both elements of the concept—things as the subject of property law and absolute
ownership—are deficient, however, and property law is more diffuse. Think first
about things, or the subject matter of property. Suzie's doll and her parents' house
are things that can be someone's property. Almost anything tangible can be the
subject matter of property. We have to say “almost,” because whether some
tangible things can be property is controversial. Suzie “belongs” to her parents,
but she ...

T IS NOT only tangible things like lightbulbs and mousetraps that are invented
and patented. How we do things has also become the object of patent
applications, leading to surprising results at times. Something as old and as
simple as playing on a swing might not appear to most adults to be fertile ground
for invention. Youngsters everywhere have discovered and invented, and
rediscovered and reinvented. and designed and redesigned all sorts of
unconventional ways to enjoy ...

And, since such a report could only ever consist of tangible things, his father, who
had never been a conventional father, seemed to externalize the notion of
fatherhood, seemed to be ticking boxes that had never been there before.
Breakfast, suit, visit to museum . . . It made their already stilted conversation more
stilted. It was only when his father was teaching him that Skanda felt he was still
in the company of the man he had known. Then, everything else fell away, and
he became as ...
