What are the main differences between the Spanish verbs "ser" and "estar"?
Though the verbs "ser" and "estar" have the same exact meaning which is "to be", they are not interchangeable in the Spanish language. "Ser" often refers to more permanent statements such as descriptions of people and objects. "Estar" is used for more temporary factors like location at a specific time, or emotions of a person at a single moment.
What is the meaning of double jeopardy and what is its relevance in the US constitution?
Double jeopardy in a legal setting means that a defendant cannot be tried twice for the same charges. Once a defendant is found not guilty of their crimes, they cannot be criminally charged for that crime again even if new evidence is found. This refers to the defendants constitutional rights as written in the 5th amendment in the bill of rights in which no person's life or limb shall be put into jeopardy twice for the same offense.
