Reverse Warrant Used In Robbery Investigation Being Challenged As Unconstitutional (techdirt)

Reverse warrants are being challenged in a criminal case involving a bank robbery in Virginia. These warrants (also called "geofence warrants") work in reverse, hence the nickname. Rather than seeking to search property belonging to a known suspect, investigators approach Google with a demand for information on all cellphones in a certain location at a certain time and work backwards from this stash to determine who to pursue as a suspect. Warrants require probable cause. And there doesn't see...

The 1978 Project: Part VI

The 1978 Project is a deep dive into the movies of a single year (guess which one!) As of right now, I’ve seen 66 movies made in 1978 (and am now caught up in reviewing each one). Convoy – A group of truckers led by the inimitable Rubber Ducky (all the truckers have goofy names like Love Machine, Widow Woman, and Big Nasty) run afoul of an abusive sheriff and form a mile long “convoy” in order to escape the forces aligned against them. Director Sam Peckinpah, in need of a success, basically t...

And so it goes...

Ennio Morricone has passed away at the age of 91. I was just listening to "The Ecstasy of Gold" the other day; everybody associates Morricone's scores with Sergio Leone's spaghetti westerns, but he scored a lot more movies than that...Mr. Morricone scored many popular films of the past 40 years: Édouard Molinaro’s “La Cage aux Folles” (1978), Mr. Carpenter’s “The Thing” (1982), Mr. De Palma’s “The Untouchables” (1987), Roman Polanski’s “Frantic” (1988), Giuseppe Tornatore’s “Cinema Paradiso” (19...

Spotlight: Nude Barre by Erin Carpenter

Erin Carpenter is an American model, actress, and dancer who was extremely frustrated when it came to purchasing proper undergarments for her entertainment career. It was especially hard for Carpenter to find hosiery that matched her skin tone. She spent a lot of time and money dying and spray painting tights and shoes for castings and performances because most brands did not produce the right shade of nude to create a great colour match. Carpenter shared these frustrations with her peers. The l...

How to Use Caffeine to Optimize Your Workouts

It can be hard to head out the door for a run around the neighborhood or a tough workout at the gym. And once you’ve gotten going, it can be hard to push yourself to your limits and go all out. Understandably then, athletes and exercisers of all kinds frequently turn to caffeinated beverages, shots, and supplements to give them a little extra boost as they put themselves through the paces.  But does caffeine actually improve your physical performance? And if so, how do you consume it in orde...

Top 10 Highlights From Blackhawks’ 2019-20 Season

Gosh, I miss hockey! While the NHL is looking at ways to finish out the NHL season and reward the Stanley Cup, we’ve all been without hockey for quite some time due to the COVID-19 pandemic. The Chicago Blackhawks’ last contest was a 6-2 victory over the San Jose Sharks on Mar. 11. To that end, this seems like a perfect time to feature highlights from the Blackhawks’ shortened 2019-20 season. For those interested, I’ve included my similar piece from the 2018-19 season below. It’s always kind ...

Republican apologizes for likening Covid-19 curbs to Nazis' persecution of Jews

Alaska state representative Ben Carpenter told to ‘Keep your Holocaust jokes to yourself’ after objecting to virus screeningAntisemitic and Nazi-sympathizing comments made by a Republican state representative in Alaska, who likened Covid-19 safety measures at the state capitol to the treatment of Jewish people in Nazi Germany, brought widespread rebuke and, eventually, an apology. Alaska’s legislature is due to return on Monday and representatives were told by email they would be asked to und...

Argument preview: Justices to hear second set of arguments on reservation status of eastern Oklahoma

Map of Oklahoma Territories, 1885 (click to enlarge) McGirt v. Oklahoma will bring the justices a pronounced sense of déjà vu, as they hear argument for the second time in two years about whether the eastern half of Oklahoma is an Indian reservation. Given the obscure historical problems that dominate Indian law, the doctrinal terrain of the issue is remarkably clear-cut. Ordinarily, status of land as an Indian reservation brings with it a variety of consequences that are important for regula...

Carved in Wood: The Bespoke Home of a Self-Taught Carpenter and an Interior Designer

We’re longtime admirers of Woodchuck, a small studio in the Netherlands that produces minimalist, artful handcrafted wood furniture—so much so that when we wrote about the brand (see that story here), we asked its founders, Tinta and Rutger Luhrman, if they would be interested in a home tour for this site. Tinta graciously declined back then, saying that their house wasn’t quite photo-ready yet. That was three years ago. Recently, we reached out again—and this time they agreed, though Tinta was ...

John Carpenter’s Unreleased ‘The Thing’ Musical Cues Coming to Vinyl

While John Carpenter provided the music for most of his films, he didn’t score one of his most iconic works: The Thing. Instead, legendary composer Ennio Morricone handled the soundtrack. However, Carpenter did create some additional cues to fill in some stretches of silence in the film, and now, that previously unreleased music is coming to vinyl for the first time, courtesy of Waxwork. When it came time to make The Thing, John Carpenter turned to Ennio Morricone, one of the best composers ...

Practice a little patience — and order some take-out

Homebound civilians may not have any sports to watch on TV, but there’s a good substitute on these days, the “House of the Flying Grudges.” To see the latest episode, tune in to any news channel. It’s not enough that we’ve got sick people to treat, or that we’ve had to close pretty much any place where people congregate (schools, churches, restaurants, shopping centers, sporting events, etc.), or that whole populations are thrown out of work. We’ve got to have talking heads dishing out blame. Th...

Blackhawks’ Youth Movement Is Here

If you haven’t noticed, the Chicago Blackhawks are getting younger and younger. Call it a soft rebuild if you’d like, or a retooling. While a small core group is still there, a new generation of younger blood is being built around them. Sure, the Blackhawks added some veteran depth pieces this past offseason to support their core. But in more and more cases they’re looking towards this younger group to supplement the team instead. Let’s look at the evolution throughout the 2019-20 season. Pl...

No to ‘FISA Reform’

Thanks to Senators Rand Paul (R., Ken.) and Mike Lee (R., Utah), as well as an amen chorus of Trump loyalists in the House, the president seems poised to fulfill one of the fondest dreams of Clinton and Obama Democrats: Government policy that regards international terrorism as a mere crime, a law-enforcement issue to be managed by federal judges rather than a national-security threat from which the officials Americans elect must safeguard our country.I doubt the president realizes these ramifica...
