  State v. Han (Memorandum Opinion)
Han stated he was prepared to furnish evidence that Lim was at the work site on the days he was supposedly to have been in treatment; however, Han did not have documentary evidence or expert testimony in support of that contention.
Han argues in his last point of error that due to the district court's failure to enter a written judgment he has effectively been deprived of his right to an appeal, which is a violation of his procedural due process rights.
Han adds that due to the court's failure to enter a written judgment, he has been subjected to an unreasonable delay in the hearing of his appeal and prosecution of his case, which is presumptively prejudicial.

Han Dynasty, Chinese dynasty (206 bc-ad 220), founded by Liu Bang (later Gao Zu) a humble soldier of fortune who became duke of Pei, later prince of Han, and subsequently (206 bc) emperor of China.

The Han expanded south of the Yangzi, absorbing land almost to China's modern borders, and planting colonies in Annam.

Han responded that he would not be able to pay his rent and Sin told him that she had never promised to pay his rent.
Han unsuccessfully moved for a new trial based on the court's failure to instruct the jury on the inferior degree crimes of second and third degree assault.
Han's testimony, if believed, could support a finding that he failed to be aware of a substantial risk that he would stab Sin and that this failure was a gross deviation from the actions of a reasonable man. Han's self-defense theory also supports the third degree assault instruction.

 Imperial Eras
The Han rulers modified some of the harsher aspects of the previous dynasty; Confucian ideals of government, out of favor during the Qin period, were adopted as the creed of the Han empire, and Confucian scholars gained prominent status as the core of the civil service.
The Han rulers, however, were unable to adjust to what centralization had wrought: a growing population, increasing wealth and resultant financial difficulties and rivalries, and ever-more complex political institutions.
Riddled with the corruption characteristic of the dynastic cycle, by A.D. 220 the Han empire collapsed.

 Han   (Site not responding. Last check: 2007-11-06)
The Han empire began in 206 B.C. when Liu Bang, prince of Han, defeated the Qin army in the valley of Wei.
Economic expansion, changing relationships with the people of the steppes, strengthening of the palace at the expense of the civil service, weakening of the state's hold on the peasantry, and the rise of the families of the rich and the gentry were all factors that led to the adoption of Confucian ideals..
The descendents of the Han dynasty eventually joined in the uprising, and, it was the armies of these nobles, under the leadership of Liu Hsiu, who killed Wang Mang in 22A.D. The fighting continued until 25 A.D., when Liu Hsiu became the emperor.

 Han Fei Summary
Han Fei was particularly alarmed by the increasingly aggressive posture of Ch'in, and he sent a series of memorials to the Han ruler, enjoining him to strengthen the army, reform the laws, and dismiss incompetent and corrupt officials to counteract the Ch'in threat.
Han Fei is known as much for his lucid writing and persuasive style of argumentation as for his philosophy itself, and his writings are full of some of early China's most engaging and illustrative stories and analogies.
Unlike the other famed philosophers of the time, Han Fei was a member of the ruling aristocracy, having been born into the ruling family of the state of Han during the end phase of the Warring States Period.

 han
Han Dynasty leaders benefited from the bureaucratic structures created by the Qin state, for example the military draft and tax system.
Although not accomplished immediately, Han leaders shifted the focus from Legalist punishment and repression and instead utilized the ideas and emphases of Confucianism as the basis for legitimacy and rule.
Thus, it was during the Han Dynasty that China became firmly rooted in Confucianist ideals in all areas of social, educational and political life; this traditional foundation remained a dominant feature in Chinese civilization until the 20th century.

 Definition of Han (state)
The Han (simplified Chinese: 韩, traditional Chinese: 韓) was a state during the Warring States Period in China.
Its territory directly blocked the passage of the state of Qin into the North China Plain, thus becoming a frequent traget of Qin's military operations.
Although the Han had attempted several self strengthening reforms, notably under the famous Legalist Shen Buhai (simplified Chinese and traditional Chinese: 申不害), it would never overcome the Qin.

It states that China is multinational, that minorities and Han have the same origins, etc. In the second and more insidious mode, language preempts certain vocabulary terms and phrases, precluding the possibility of saying anything against the idea of unity.
The constitution also states that all Ãñxå are equal, and that all have the right to use their own language in education and administration, and to practice their customs, as long as these customs do not interfere with socialism or with modernization.
Thus the Chinese state is not overwhelmingly legitimate in these areas, and could never be as long as it was ruled from Beijing, had mostly Han personnel at the national level, and used Chinese as its language of administration, propaganda, and media.

Han Wudi, tired of incessant Xiongnu intrusions and emboldened by the bulging state coffers, soon abandoned the long held marriage-for-peace policy and decided to switch to a strategy of military offensives against the barbarians.
When he saw that merchants and traders were prospering from the state's early investments in the network of roads and waterways (built to facilitate the movement of goods, particularly silk, produced in the south), he imposed a capital gains tax and a vehicle levy on them.
The Han state's coffers were depleted and the economy sharply declined towards the end of Han Wudi's reign.

In his time, dozens of states were struggling for supremacy in China, and hundreds of philosophers presented the kings with their theories about how to rule and enrich the state.
On the other hand, Han objected against them, argued that the law with clear and consistent standards for punishment and favor was necessary for enriching the state and building up the defenses.
