Can a former police officer take pictures of you?

Former police officers don't have any special rights in this regard, but that still means the answer is "yes," since basically anyone can take pictures of you.

There are some limitations on how the pictures can be used ... people are generally considered to own the rights to their own likeness, so you usually can't use a photograph of someone for commercial purposes without their consent (with some exceptions if the subject is "newsworthy"). But the act of taking a picture is not illegal, nor can you sue over it.

How long does it take for something to become a habit?

AnswerEvery person is different. So, it can take different amounts of time to grow on and off a habit for different people. It also depends on what the habit is.

Although your question is too general to offer much help, you may find this interesting to observe regarding creating or changing "habits".

Simple repetitive tasks require a time frame of approximately 21 days to condition.

Here is a familiar example: When you walk into your bedroom you "automatically" reach for the light switch on the left side as you enter. Then you move to a new home where the light switch is located on the right side as you enter. You will find that it will take you about 21 days to stop reaching for that light switch on the left side. (that is not there!). You will also find this 21 day "benchmark" to be the time your new house will start feeling "like home".

Answer:Around 30 - 40 repetitions, with most people.

It depends on how type of person you are; and also depends on that you are human being or animal.

Animals take more time then human beings to make anything their habit, and they also take more time to leave that habit.

Also, human beings differ from person to person.

Answer:21 days is not an accurate answer! That number appears to have been invented by a self-styled self-help expert based on guesswork. Research shows that the amount of time varies greatly depending on how complex the activity is, how often it's performed, and other factors. In one experiment habit formation took anywhere from 1 month to 8 months.

How does someone become a judge in the federal courts?

By being really smart, doing good in school and college. Obtaining a degree in law, being a model citizen.... and getting appointed by the President, and confirmed by Senate.

It's probably easier said than done though. If that's what you want to do I would read up on a few Judges.... look at their education, and career history. That should give you some basic insight on whats expected from a Federal Judge.

Civil Lawsuits
Criminal Justice Careers

What happens in the state of Virginia if you are sued in civil court and cannot afford a defense attorney or a settlement?

Some pro bono projects offer assistance to defendants who are unable to afford attorneys in civil suits, but there is no guaranteed right to an appointed attorney as there are in criminal actions.

If you are unable to obtain low cost or free legal assistance, you will need to do the research and answer the lawsuit to the best of your ability. The most important thing is to remember to always be honest. You may or may not receive some leniency from the Court regarding procedure, but presenting a defense that is false or that you don't understand will never work out well for you.

Nobody starts as a warden.

You need to begin by attending a University, and taking a four year degree in either Criminology or Psychology, or a similar discipline. Then apply for a job at the bottom of the prison's administrative staff, and start working your way up the promotion ladder. After about 20 years you may be in a position to be considered for a deputy warden's job. Along the way you will deal with the worst part of society, the career criminals.


That depends on where you want to work at.


It may sound odd but the majority of wardens have undergraduate and graduate degrees in business administration and some knowledge in criminal justice and social sciences.
