In poetry:

Therefore go on brave women! and never fear,
Although your case may seem dark and drear,
And put your trust in God, for He is strong;
And ye will gain the parliamentary Franchise before very long.
"Women's Suffrage" by William Topaz McGonagall
And that, in my opinion, is really very unjust;
But the time is not far distant, I most earnestly trust,
When women will have a parliamentary vote,
And many of them, I hope, will wear a better petticoat.
"Women's Suffrage" by William Topaz McGonagall
And in my opinion, such treatment is very cruel;
And fair play, 'tis said, is a precious jewel;
But such treatment causes women to fret and to dote,
Because they are deprived of the parliamentary Franchise vote.
"Women's Suffrage" by William Topaz McGonagall
And I hope that God will aid them in this enterprise,
And enable them to obtain the parliamentary Franchise;
And rally together, and make a bold stand,
And demand the parliamentary Franchise throughout Scotland.
"Women's Suffrage" by William Topaz McGonagall
Fellow men! why should the lords try to despise
And prohibit women from having the benefit of the parliamentary Franchise?
When they pay the same taxes as you and me,
I consider they ought to have the same liberty.
"Women's Suffrage" by William Topaz McGonagall
In my opinion, what a man pays for he certainly should get;
And if he does not, he will certainly fret;
And why wouldn't women do the very same?
Therefore, to demand the parliamentary Franchise they are not to blame.
"Women's Suffrage" by William Topaz McGonagall

In science:

The resource described in this paper contains English source texts (parliamentary proceedings) and their German translations.
Building a resource for studying translation shifts
Furthermore, the genre of the Europarl corpus – parliamentary proceedings – is highly restricted and it would be a useful extension to include other types of data (e. g. technical language, literary prose) in order to compare the occurrence of shifts across genres.

On the other hand, public protests after parliamentary elections resulted in unprecedented anti-forgery activities at the presidential elections, such as live web broadcast from most of the polling stations and intense public control by volunteer observers.
Statistical anomalies in 2011-2012 Russian elections revealed by 2D correlation analysis
Seven parties participated in the parliamentary elections with four of them having passed the 7% threshold; five candidates ran for president (see Methods for details).
Statistical anomalies in 2011-2012 Russian elections revealed by 2D correlation analysis
United Russia (UR) won the parliamentary elections with a result of 49.31%, while Vladimir Putin defeated his rivals with a landsliding figure of 63.60%.
Statistical anomalies in 2011-2012 Russian elections revealed by 2D correlation analysis
One of the most striking examples of such correlations is given by the city of Moscow where parliamentary elections resulted in an extremely high correlation between turnout and UR result (Fig. 2A).
Statistical anomalies in 2011-2012 Russian elections revealed by 2D correlation analysis
Number of votes for UR (A) and Putin (B) at polling stations showing a certain turnout and result in parliamentary and presidential elections, respectively (in 1% × 1% bins). R stands for correlation coefficient (excluding 5% of ballots at highest and 5% at lowest turnouts).
