Still, presidential vetoes occur more often than you might think. Every president since Garfield has vetoed at least
one bill. The younger Bush was the first president since John Quincy Adams to go a full four years without a veto, acco
rding to the Congressional Research Service. The House, which was Republican-led for Bush’s entire first term,
was protecting him from bills he opposed. Barack Obama, similarly, had help on Capitol Hill for most of his pr
esidency, just as Trump has. But Obama did veto two bills even when Democrats controlled both chambers of Congress.
The President with the most vetoes was Democrat Roosevelt, wi
th 635, although he also served the longest in the White House (12 years). All those vetoes cam
e even though Roosevelt enjoyed Democratic majorities for his entire time in the White House.
If you plot vetoes alongside how closely aligned Congress is
to the president, it used to be quite common for a president to veto bills from a House and Senate ali
gned with him. This data comes from The American Presidency Project at the University of California at Santa Barbara.
In a bid to improve the nation’s business environment, the China National Intellectual Property Administration will roll
out a new set of regulations on trademark filings to curb the “applications out of malice”.
The regulations draft has been publicized on the CNIPA website, soliciting suggestions and opinions from the public until March 14.
The move reflects a shift in policymakers’ focus from intellectual property quantity to quality, s
aid Li Shunde, a senior IP researcher at the Chinese Academy of Social Sciences.
Comprised of eight articles, the new regulations target “abnormal applications”, such as trademark sq
uatting, imitating established brands and filings with no intentions for actual use in industry or business.
The regulations, once they take effect, will also come as a severe blow to tradema
rk speculators, who apply for and stock trademarks for trade rather than industrial or business use.
exert to secure gifts or arrange a romantic evening, while men often seek th
e easiest means and least efforts needed to accomplish the much-disliked ob
ligation of purchasing Valentine’s Day presents for their beloved or selecting a romantic spot to awe them on Valentine’s Day.
On one hand, men might put much emphasis on the monetary value of the gifts that they buy or the cost of spending a ro
mantic Valentine’s Day. They believe that expensive gifts and extravagant settings for the event will endear them to th
e hearts of their loved ones. On the other hand, women might evaluate the romantic gestures on sentimental values.
Most men have to the tendency to be lazy when it comes to buying Valentine’s Day g
ifts. Some are inclined to purchase things that might be practical yet not so ro
mantic. Receiving such gifts might dampen any romantic aspirations a woman may have for Valentine’s Day.
From discussions with students through my teaching assignments, I discovered that most of these young men are too tim
id to show their romantic feelings. However, they are slowly becoming bolder in dealing with their affections.
