The numerous international tensions over Antarctica and the risk of the spread of the Cold War on that continent prompted U.S. President Dwight D. Eisenhower to convene a conference on Antarctica in the twelve active countries to sign a treaty during the International Geophysical Year. In the first phase, representatives of the twelve nations met in Washington, D.C., which met in 60 meetings from June 1958 to October 1959 to define the basic negotiating framework. However, no consensus was reached on a draft. In the second phase, a conference at the highest diplomatic level was held from 15 October to 1 December 1959, the date of the signing of the treaty. The central ideas, which were fully accepted, were the freedom of scientific research in Antarctica and the peaceful use of the continent. Nevertheless, there was also consensus on their demilitarization and maintaining the status quo. On the construction issue, McFarlane LJ considered that the word "will" introduced a mandatory requirement in Article 5 for the contract to continue beyond the first twelve months, without specifying the duration of the contract. He said: Other agreements - about 200 recommendations adopted at treaty consultation meetings and ratified by governments - include: his most famous book, The Four Agreements, was published in 1997 and sold 10 million times in the United States and translated into 46 languages. The book advocates the personal freedom of convictions and agreements we have made with ourselves and with others, which create use and unhappiness in our lives. It was broadcast on the television show Oprah.  The four agreements are: although there is much overlap between relations and relationships, the following twelve agreements are concluded by both partners and will encapsulate those who I believe are most represented in both sexes. They are a true personification of the compassion and understanding that exist in these collaborative and quality partnerships. Legal counsel should consider including anti-obsolescence language in their agreements, particularly with respect to provisions that may be contentious, such as termination clauses or restrictive agreements.
