Infamous [HOT]

Parents need to know that inFAMOUS is a kind of open-ended Grand Theft Auto-style game -- peppered with more than 100 missions and containing fighting scenes against enemies -- but it's a lot tamer than the "infamous" GTA series (it's rated "teen" instead of "Mature"). Yes, the player can choose to be a bad guy by abusing his newfound superhuman powers, but will be rewarded for using it for good. Electricity-based powers are used against human enemies, and some blood can be seen during or following a battle. Some potentially disturbing comic book-like scenes exist, too, such as humans hanging from a noose. There are suggestive visuals (including a sexy female boss) and some foul language can be heard.


a 16c. merger of two Middle English words, with the form of infamous "not well-known" (early 15c.) and the sense of infamis (late 14c.), "of ill repute, famous for badness." Infamous is from Medieval Latin infamosus, from in- "not, opposite of" (see in- (1)) + Latin famosus "celebrated" (see famous). Infamis is from Latin infamis "of ill fame" (see infamy).

Meaning "causing infamy" is from 1550s. As a legal term, "disqualified from certain rights of citizens because of conviction for certain crimes" (late 14c.). The neutral fameless (in the sense original to infamous) is recorded from 1590s. Related: Infamously.

late 14c., "celebrated in public report, renowned, well-known" also "notorious, infamous," from Anglo-French famous, Old French fameus (Modern French fameux), from Latin famosus "much talked of, renowned," often "infamous, notorious, of ill repute," from fama (from PIE root *bha- (2) "to speak, tell, say"). A native word for this was Old English namcuð, literally "name-known." Catch phrase famous last words in the humorous sense "remark likely to prove fatally wrong" is attested from 1921 (early lists of them include "Let's see if it's loaded ... We'll get across before the train comes ... Which one is the third rail? ... Light up, it can't explode").

Monkeypox virus (MPXV) is closely related to the infamous variola (smallpox) virus, causing a febrile rash illness in humans similar to but milder than smallpox. In the twentieth century, human monkeypox had been mostly a rare zoonotic disease confined to forested areas in West and Central Africa. However, the case number and geographic range have increased significantly in this century, coincided with the waning of the smallpox vaccine-induced immunity in the global population. The outbreak of human monkeypox in multiple countries since May 2022 has been unusual in its large case number and the absence of direct links to endemic countries, raising concerns for a possible change in monkeypox transmission pattern that could pose a greater global threat. Here, we review aspects of MPXV biology that are relevant for risk assessment and preparedness for a monkeypox epidemic, with an emphasis on recent progress in understanding of the virus host range, evolutionary potential, and neutralization targets.

Lisette, a Saint-Domingue-born Creole slave and daughter of an African-born bossale, has inherited not only the condition of slavery but the traumatic memory of the Middle Passage as well. The stories told to her by her grandmother and godmother, including the horrific voyage aboard the infamous slave ship Rosalie, have become part of her own story, the one she tells in this haunting novel by the acclaimed Haitian writer Évelyne Trouillot.

When a huge explosion tears down several blocks in the middle of Empire City, Cole MacGrath mysteriously is the only person to survive near the center of the detonation. However, he starts to notice an unusual change in his body, a supernatural power over electricity which he soon learns to control. By then, a sickness has lead the government to quarantine the entire city, enabling street gangs to overwhelm the police and establish a violent rule over the population and the increasingly scarce supplies. Trapped in a desolate city of people who hold him responsible for the explosion, wanted by the police and hunted by the Reapers who try to stay in control of the streets, Cole must decide whose side he's on. Will he use his new-found powers to assure his own survival and take revenge on the people that condemn him, or will he use them to gain their respect by aiming for the greater good? Will he become a famous superhero, or an infamous super villain?

The Fifth Amendment to the United States Constitution provides that prosecutions "for a capital, or otherwise infamous crime" must be instituted by "a presentment or indictment of a Grand Jury." See Ex Parte Wilson, 114 U.S. 417, 427 (1885); United States v. Wellington, 754 F.2d 1457, 1462 (9th Cir.), cert. denied, 474 U.S. 1032 (1982); United States v. Gonzales, 661 F.2d 488, 492 (5th Cir. 1981). As with a capital crime, whether a crime is "infamous" depends upon its punishment rather than upon the character of the criminal act. The courts have ruled that any crime that may be punished by more than one yearÃs imprisonment in a penitentiary or at hard labor is an infamous crime. See Green v. United States, 356 U.S. 165, 183 (1958); Mackin v. United States, 117 U.S. 348, 350-52 (1886); United States v. Russell, 585 F.2d 368, 370 (8th Cir. 1978); Catlette v. United States, 132 F.2d 902 (4th Cir. 1943). Since all Federal felonies are punishable in that fashion they are infamous crimes. See 18 U.S.C. 4083. Therefore, unless an indictment is waived, its use is required to charge a felony. See this Manual at 209.

Although the penalty for a misdemeanor may be imprisonment for one year, a misdemeanor is not an "infamous" crime because the defendant cannot be placed in a penitentiary without his or her consent. See 18 U.S.C. 4083. Prosecutions for contempt are an exception to the constitutional requirement. Green v. United States, 356 U.S. at 187 (because of its "unique character", a contempt prosecution may be initiated by information even if the defendant is sentenced to imprisonment for more than one year). Rule 7(a) provides that an offense punishable by death must be prosecuted by indictment without exception. 041b061a72
