Professional Cultures and Professional Ethics

When we think about lawyers’ ethics we think about individual lawyers and their choices. Our codes of conduct apply to lawyers as individuals. We consider whether an individual violated his ethical obligations. We sanction individual lawyers. But beyond that limited regulatory focus (which Adam Dodek has persuasively questioned, and which some regulators are moving beyond), our general conversations about lawyers’ ethics tend to focus on the individual. We talk about the good lawyer and the bad ...

Judge Kavanaugh has taught me so much about how the world works

I can’t stop reading about Judge Kavanaugh. I am learning so much about how the world works. His yearbook from high school is horrifying. There were derogatory jokes about women throughout the pages. Everyone knew, but the boys were rich, and they were going to top colleges, so it was okay. I didn’t know there were yearbooks like that. I knew that in those rich-kid private schools the teachers decide who goes to which school. I know that, for example, Yale takes a certain number of kids from ...

Morning Docket: 09.24.18

The showdown is expected to go down on Thursday, pending any last-minute changes.

Allegations of sexual assault follow more than half a dozen DKE members, including its president. And now, Brett Kavanaugh. This archival photograph from the year Kavanaugh was a sophomore at the University, and already inducted into the fraternity, kind of says all you need to know about rape culture. Kava-NOPE.

Why We Hate (And Love) The Tiger Mom

The trailer to Crazy Rich Asians starts innocently enough: After flashes of glitzy urban landscapes, the film's star, Constance Wu, appears on the screen with her love interest played by Henry Golding. The trailer teases that the movie has summer blockbuster elements in spades: In addition to a marriage plot, there’s abs, fast cars, and hot women in couture gowns. It’s a good, gold-dripping time for all.Less than a minute into the trailer, though, we see another kind of woman. She’s a few decad...

Water-based AC cools the air without using harmful chemicals

Our air conditioners still draw on principles that are around 100-years-old, sucking up power in the process. Researchers from the National University of Singapore (NUS) are working on an alternative: water-based air conditioners. Their system doesn’t need energy-intensive compressors or harmful chemical refrigerants – and can cool air all the way down to 18 degrees Celsius, or 64.4 degrees Fahrenheit. Over 40 percent of the energy consumption of a building in the tropics goes to air condition...

Why Are Paleo Advocates So Obsessed With Sleeping On The Floor?

To some individuals on the internet, it's not enough to simply eat Paleo, they also have to sleep Paleo. And "going full caveman" usually means getting rid of your mattress in favor of spending your nights curled up on the hard floor, perhaps with a light yoga mat or sleeping bag. Even Goop is on board with the idea of communing with your bare-ass floor for a better night's sleep.To most of us, sleeping on the floor sounds about as comfortable as sleeping on the floor.

Smoking In the Philippines Could Land You In Prison For 4 Months

MANILA, Oct 12 (Reuters) - Philippine President Rodrigo Duterte is set to sign a regulation this month banning smoking in public across Southeast Asia’s second-most populous country, rolling out among the toughest anti-tobacco laws in the region. Public health campaigners who have long battled against the country’s hefty tobacco lobby welcomed the push to end smoking in public places and said they believed Duterte, with his tough anti-vice record, was the man to do it.
