4) Judicial notice is a method whereby a Court can make a finding that something is true without there being any evidence presented on that issue.

Explain the difference between the two.
3) In Heckler v. Campbell, 461 U.S. 458 (1983), the Court examined the use of four variables for determining whether an applicant is disabled such that they cannot engage in any work. ALJs could examine these variables and make findings without the necessity of listening to expert testimony regarding that issue. Explain some pros and cons of this approach.
2) The past two chapters discussed procedural due process and formal adjudications. This chapter discusses some ways around some of these traditional requirements. Explain the shortcut provided in Storer and the subsequent similar cases?
1) What is an administrative/substantive rule?
Research government regulations on a particular area of your choice, such as food, drugs, product safety, fracking, environment, etc. Do you think the government regulations go too far? Do you think the government needs to add more regulations? How are lobbyists involved concerning regulations on food and drug safety, and our environment concerning fracking? Explain your answers.
Option 2: Many experts see the media as biased and more like infotainment. In fact, many people have turned to social networks as an outlet for news instead of CBS, NBC, FOX, CNN and other news stations. Do you see this as an issue? Do you see the news as biased or unbiased? Should there be more restrictions on the news stations?
Option 1: The framers of the Constitution were concerned that everyday citizens would not be able to understand or comprehend the makings of our government. They felt that everyday citizens were uninformed and did not care what was going on in our government. Even today we see where citizens are interested in government affairs seemingly only if our country is in turmoil such as unemployment, recessions, civil unrest, etc. Do you agree with this assessment? Are we uninformed? Do we wait till a crisis happens to voice our opinions?
