  USA PATRIOT Act
Before the Patriot Act, it was easier to track a drug dealer's phone contacts than a terrorist's phone contacts, and it was easier to obtain a tax cheat's credit card receipts than to trace the financial support of an al-Qaida fundraiser.
The Patriot Act corrected these double standards - and America is safer as a result.
The Patriot Act allows Internet service providers to disclose customer records voluntarily to the government in emergencies involving an immediate risk of death or serious physical injury and permits victims of hacking crimes to request law enforcement assistance in monitoring trespassers on their computers.

  Double Act: A Life of Tom Stoppard (Tom Stoppard: A Life) - Ira Nadel
Nadel's is certainly an adequate one, and answers at least some of the questions interested readers will have had about the man behind the plays (and screenplays and the one novel).
Nadel couldn't resist offering a possible way of seeing Stoppard's life and work: as the double act of the British title of this book.
Stoppard conveniently talks about leading a double life and liking to take both positions in an argument and other dualities in his life, and Nadel offers many nice quotes to that effect.

  Double act - Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia
A double act, also known as a comedy duo, is a comic device in which humor is derived from the uneven relationship between two partners, usually of the same gender, age, ethnic origin, and profession, but drastically different personalities.
However, other British acts such as The Two Ronnies; Lee and Herring; Rik Mayall and Adrian Edmondson; Reeves and Mortimer; French and Saunders; Mel Smith and Griff Rhys Jones, Fry and Laurie and The Mighty Boosh the role of "comic" and "straight man" are less obvious, largely interchangeable or dispensed with altogether.
Double acts are also found in other genres - the popular science show MythBusters is co-hosted by Jamie Hyneman and Adam Savage, with humor often derived from the different reactions of the personalities of the laconic Hyneman and the extroverted Savage.

 GAO Forecasts Shortfall In Double-Hulled Tonnage
The Oil Pollution Act of 1990 (OPA '90) requires that single-hulled tank ships operating in U.S. waters, including barges, be removed from petroleum transportation service on a graduated schedule, which began in 1995 and concludes in 2015.
Bypassing the Jones Act would allow companies to build double-hulled tankers in foreign shipyards, such as those of Korea, which are heavily subsidized by their respective governments and are able to undercut world shipbuilding prices.
If a shortage of Jones Act qualified double-hulled tank ship tonnage develops as single-hulled tankers are removed from the petroleum trades, companies cited importation of foreign oil, an increase in the use of foreign tankers, an increase in the use of pipelines and land transportation of oil and petroleum products as preferred alternatives.

 Burke would like to double Act 255 angel tax credits | WTN
In an interview, Burke said funding increases would be contingent on the state's fiscal health, but she would like to double the tax credits from the $3 million allocated in the current biennial budget.
Under Act 255, which had bipartisan support, the state made available $65 million in tax credits over 10 years to encourage angel investors and venture capitalists to invest more in Wisconsin.
Burke noted that all the angel tax credits available in the current budget were used in the first year, a sign that the credits are an effective strategy to boost investment in early-stage companies.

 Carnival mood after stunning double act   (Site not responding. Last check: 2007-11-05)
The commentator’s comments were aroused by a moving patriotic act by one of the runners, Benjamin Maiyo, who kept urging and signaling compatriot Robert Cheruiyot to take the lead as the race snaked towards the crossing line.
Maiyo, who ended up second, was the most dramatic on track and a source of inspiration with his great team spirit to not only his fellow countrymen, but to the larger American audience and billions who were watching globally.
But this was just a sideshow, the eventual double Kenyan victory in both the men’s and women’s categories led to a carnival mood amongst Kenyans across the United States.

Double Act is a great book about 2 inseparable twins, their dad, their mom, their gran, and their mean stepmother, Rose.

 rediff.com: Football World Cup - Portugal's double act ready to shine
By playing together since they were world youth champions in 1991, Portugal's Rui Costa and Joao Pinto have formed a powerful double act which they hope will unsettle defences in the World Cup as it did in the 2000 European championship.
Although less prolific as a goalscorer than team mates at club and international level, he is effective in his preferred role of supporting a lone striker to "spearhead" the attack.

 BakuTODAY.net - Poland poised for unique political double-act after prime minister quits
Poland is preparing for a unique political double act as the head of the ruling Law and Justice party, Jaroslaw Kaczynski, the identical twin of President Lech Kaczynski, stood poised to be nominated for the post of prime minister.
Law and Justice's (PiS) political committee began a meeting late Saturday morning to vote on whether to accept the resignation of Prime Minister Kazimierz Marcinkiewicz and to replace him with the man who named him to the post nine months ago, Jaroslaw Kaczynski.
Jaroslaw said then that neither the Polish people nor Poland's international partners would tolerate a fraternal double act in the two key posts of Polish politics.

I love it when two characters of vastly different personas are friends (or at least can stand each other).
My favorite activity is rolling around on my hoard, and my pet peeves are knights making a name for themselves and small gnomes.
I recon they'd both get along^^ Granted there was that point before where Colin claimed he was better than all the Dragons and Enigma was angry, but now Colin is over that they really have quite a lot in common.

 Scoop: Pinocchio And Pacific Patsy’s Double Act at the UN
It sits nicely with George W Bush’s statement to an assortment of Miami terrorists and sycophants in the Rose Garden on 10 October last year that "The Cuban regime is not going to change on its own, but Cuba must change", and the USAID contribution outlined above.
Article 17 of the Vienna Declaration states "The acts, methods and practices of terrorism in all its forms and manifestations …are activities aimed at…threatening territorial integrity, security of States and destabilizing legitimately constituted Governments…".
Now, I realise George W is dyslexic, and incredibly stupid, and as such is probably deserving of sympathy and understanding from a more generous person than myself, and I realise that NZ has a serious literacy problem, but what are they missing here!
