Greenhalgh v Arderne Cinemas Ltd (1946)
Lord Greene, in Greenhalgh v Arderne Cinemas Ltd held that there are exceptions to Foss v Harbottle, according to which the company is the claimant in the event wrongs are committed against it, Hicks & Goo (2008). The exceptions to the Foss v Harbottle include a derivative action, under which minority shareholders are permitted to bring claims on behalf of the company itself. This effectively laid ground for the emergency of remedies for minority shareholders in a company, which informed the Greenhalgh v Arderne Cinemas Ltd ruling.
Is War Beneficial to Mankind?
War is a horrible medium, which has been used for hundreds of thousands of years, to achieve certain goals through the use of force. The major causes for war are resources, which can be territory, water, gold, minerals or animals; and ideologies: political beliefs, religion, philosophical differences.

And it seems to be a natural process, for it moves in this direction whenever a nation enters the period of development and progress.
The Power of Colorblind Love
When two people meet and look in each other’s eyes, it can happen that from the first moment they somehow know that they belong together. After such a mutual glance, they can notice that they are of different races, seem to have absolutely nothing in common and look nothing alike. But all these physical differences have no sense to their hearts, as once people have fallen in love with each other, they will never break up only because of the racial diversity.
