Lightning’s Deadline Deals in the Yzerman Era

During his time as general manager of the Tampa Bay Lightning, Steve Yzerman approached every trade deadline differently. Some seasons he was a seller, auctioning off veteran players in order to help build the future of the franchise. Other seasons he was a buyer, cashing in some of those assets he acquired at past deadlines in order to bring in key players for a playoff push.

Student SCOTUS preview part two: noticing the parole push in United States v. Haymond

I noted here back in 2017 an interesting opinion in US v. Haymond where a Tenth Circuit panel declared unconstitutional the procedures used for revocation of a sex offender's supervised release.  The Supreme Court also obviously found the case interesting because, as reported here, the Justices in 2018 accepted the petition for certiorari filed by the federal government.  Oral argument is scheduled for two weeks from now, and a SCOTUSblog page on Haymond has links to all the briefing. As reporte...

Startups are betting that letting people work from home, an RV, or a New Zealand mountaintop will lure top talent away from Silicon Valley

Tech companies are increasingly adopting all-remote workforces. A few years ago, investors were hesistant about startups that don't even have a office — but the success of all-remote companies like Zapier and GitLab, as well as the increasing availability of chat tools like Slack and Zoom, have given them confidence.  Startups are fighting with Silicon Valley tech giants for the best talent, so hiring remotely can be a way to attract better talent who live in other parts of the globe.
