"Tumbang Preso"

This is a very common game among the youth all over the country, played in backyards, parks or even in streets with less vehicular traffic. The equipment needed are empty milk can, slipper or a piece of flat stone as "pamato."

For the purpose of making the game enjoyable and exciting, the composition of players should not be more than 9. The principle involved is to hit and knock down the milk can with the "pamato," and for the IT to put back the can inside a small circle a few meters away from the toe-line. When a player is tag while re-covering his pamato, he becomes thde IT.

Rules of the Game

1. An IT, the one to guard the milk can is chosen by throwing the "pamato" to the toe line by all the players. Whoever player whose "pamato" is farthest from the toe-line is the IT.

2. The hitters will line up at the back of the toe-line and at the sign of the IT, game is started.

3. The "pamato" must be retrieved immediately once the can is knocked down, otherwise once the IT has placed the can inside the circle, the one tagged becomes the IT.

4. When the can is hit and went off the circle but remains standing, the IT has the right to tag the hitter once the hitter leaves the toe-line.

5. The can maybe kicked or knocked down under situation No. 4.

6. If a hitter is not able to retrieve his "pamato," the others can save him by hitting the can.

H L A Hart rules of change what is harts rule of chang?

Hart in his book, Concept of Law, has contemplated law to be a unification of two kinds of rules - Primary Rules and secondary rules. These two rules together make, what is known as a 'system of rules'. Secondary rules are of three types -1) Rules of change2) Rules of Adjudication3) Rules of recognitionPrimary rules and secondary rules must co-exist, each being sine qua non of the other.As per his thesis on the rules of change, he says that these are those which enables the modification of the primary rules. If primary rules are not changed then law will not be able to adapt with the changing time and will be of no use. Hart says that rules of change include repealing old rules and bringing new ones in place and amending the rules to suit the changing time and circumstance, which is in a state of constant flux.In light of a constitution, the amending power can be said to a rule of change. eg: Art 368 in the Indian Constitution is a rule of change. (It must be kept in mind that it also provides a power to the Parliament to amend, thus, is also a power conferring law).
