Mental Retardation
INTELLECTUAL DISABILITY (ID), also known as GENERAL LEARNING DISABILITY, and MENTAL RETARDATION (MR), is a generalized neurodevelopmental disorder characterized by significantly impaired intellectual and adaptive functioning . It is defined by an IQ score under 70 in addition to deficits in two or more adaptive behaviors that affect everyday, general living. Once focused almost entirely on cognition , the definition now includes both a component relating to mental functioning and one relating to individuals' functional skills in their environments. As a result of this focus on the person's abilities in practice, a person with an unusually low IQ may not be considered to have intellectually disability

Masturbation
MASTURBATION is the sexual stimulation of one's own genitals for sexual arousal or other sexual pleasure, usually to the point of orgasm . The stimulation may involve hands, fingers , everyday objects, sex toys such as vibrators , or combinations of these. Mutual masturbation (mutual manual stimulation of the genitals between partners) can be a substitute for sexual penetration . Studies have found that masturbation is frequent in humans of both sexes and all ages, although there is variation. Various medical and psychological benefits have been attributed to a healthy attitude toward sexual activity in general and to masturbation in particular. No causal relationship is known between masturbation and any form of mental or physical disorder. Masturbation

Forensic Science
FORENSIC SCIENCE is the application of science to criminal and civil laws , mainly—on the criminal side—during criminal investigation , as governed by the legal standards of admissible evidence and criminal procedure . Forensic scientists collect, preserve, and analyze scientific evidence during the course of an investigation. While some forensic scientists travel to the scene of the crime to collect the evidence themselves, others occupy a laboratory role, performing analysis on objects brought to them by other individuals. In addition to their laboratory role, forensic scientists testify as expert witnesses in both criminal and civil cases and can work for either the prosecution or the defense. While any field could technically be forensic, certain sections have developed over time to encompass the majority of forensically related cases

Evidence
EVIDENCE, broadly construed, is anything presented in support of an assertion . This support may be strong or weak. The strongest type of evidence is that which provides direct proof of the truth of an assertion. At the other extreme is evidence that is merely consistent with an assertion but does not rule out other, contradictory assertions, as in circumstantial evidence . In law , rules of evidence govern the types of evidence that are admissible in a legal proceeding. Types of legal evidence include testimony , documentary evidence , and physical evidence . The parts of a legal case which are not in controversy are known, in general, as the "facts of the case." Beyond any facts that are undisputed, a judge or jury is usually tasked with being a trier of fact for the other issues of a case. Evidence

and rules are used to decide questions of fact that are disputed, some of which may be determined by the legal burden of proof relevant to the case

Statute Of Limitations
STATUTES OF LIMITATIONS are laws passed by legislative bodies in common law systems to set the maximum time after an event within which legal proceedings may be initiated. When the period of time specified in a statute of limitations passes, a claim might no longer be filed, or, if filed, may be liable to be struck out if the defense to that claim is, or includes, that the claim is time-barred as having been filed after the statutory limitations period. When a statute of limitations expires in a criminal case, the courts no longer have jurisdiction. Jurisdictions that have statutes of limitations for most crimes often except particularly serious crimes from those laws, such that they may be brought at any time. In civil law systems, similar provisions are typically part of their civil or criminal codes and known collectively as periods of prescription. The cause of action dictates the statute of limitations, which can be reduced (or extended) to ensure a fair trial
