"I’m not surprised that without any of that background information or context that voters would not support these changes."

Said Eileen Harrington, "former chairperson of the now-dissolved Task Force on Government Structure," quoted in "Madison voters widely support City Council term limits; reject full-time body, longer term lengths" (Wisconsin State Journal). [Harrington's] work prompted the advisory questions.... In a report to the council in early 2020, the task force concluded the current system is “fundamentally unfair,” particularly for people of color and low-income residents, and one that favors people with ...

"I don’t like struggle sessions; I think critical race theory as it developed in the academy is intellectually rich, but some of the ways it’s been adapted by workplace diversity trainers..."

"... and education consultants seem risible.... The right-wing caricature of progressive public schools as pampered re-education camps is extremely far from my own family’s experience, but if any kids are being bullied and shamed for refusing to espouse social justice principles, even principles I agree with, that’s wrong. However, the claim that the right’s war on critical race theory doesn’t threaten academic freedom is also wrong. Consider what just happened in Idaho, where last week Boise St...

California’s draft ethnic studies curriculum still isn’t right

On March 5th, the California Department of Education released a fourth draft of its Ethnic Studies Model Curriculum. Not surprisingly, letters opposing Critical Race Theory and Critical Ethnic Studies comprised the #1 concern about the ESMC. And yet, more than half of those letters were not counted by the CDE, and more than 100 pages of suggested edits were likewise completely ignored. Critical Ethnic Studies, one approach to teaching the subject, is political indoctrination that has traditional...

Justice Delayed and Denied in Ontario’s Tribunals

Widespread distrust of government helped Donald Trump bring the United States to its knees. Only 17% of Americans trusted the federal government to do the right thing most of the time in 2019, down from over 70% in the 1960s. People who lack any confidence in government tend to be receptive to anti-government populist messages. The best way to preserve public trust in government is to ensure, as much as possible, that government acts in a trustworthy way. What does this have to do with Ontario’s...

5 strategies for estate planning to get you started protecting your family and funds

Many parts of a good estate plan can and should be set up sooner rather than later, to ensure the smooth transfer of your money and property to your heirs after your death. vgajic/Getty Images An estate plan is important for everyone, regardless of income, to ensure your assets are distributed smoothly, fairly, and tax-efficiently to heirs. Two immediate estate-planning strategies to do include naming beneficiaries for retirement accounts and powers-of-attorney if you're incapacitated and...

No Trivial Matter

I am a big fan of trivia. I am pretty much undefeated in any game of Trivial Pursuit since the mid-1980s [1] . One night years ago my family thought they might defeat me playing a DVD-video based version of the game. My victory that night has become family legend. [2] A piece of trivia I recently learned was that the Audi automobile company takes its name from the legal maxim, audi alteram partem . The founder, August Horch, could not use his surname as it was part of the trademark ...

Special COVID pandemic tax benefits for charitable help

Congress plans to pass this evening its second round of COVID-19 help for millions of Americans. It's a huge bill. Granted, much of its 5,593 pages of dense legislative language cover the funding bills required to keep the federal government open through fiscal year 2021. Lawmakers decided to incorporate some pandemic relief measures into this must-pass bill. Obviously, there are associated tax implications. I'll be writing about some of those coronavirus-related tax matters in the coming days ...

Images of Prototype Apple Macintosh With Clear Casing Shared Online (mac rumors)

Twitter user @DongleBookPro has shared images of a prototype Macintosh Classic with a translucent casing. The final retail Macintosh Classic used an iconic beige plastic, so it is rare to see one with a clear casing. This allows it to show off many of the Macintosh's internal parts, such as its nine-inch CRT monitor. It also highlights just how much empty space there was within the Mac. DongleBookPro did not share any further information about the machine, but Apple has been kn...

Images of Prototype Apple Macintosh With Clear Casing Shared Online

Twitter user @DongleBookPro has shared images of a prototype original Macintosh with a translucent casing.

The Macintosh was introduced in the famous "1984" Super Bowl commercial directed by Ridley Scott. The machine retailed for $2,495, which is equivalent to over $6,000 today. The final retail Macintosh used an iconic beige plastic, so it is rare to see one with a cl...

Elon Musk wanted to name his tequila 'Teslaquila' but Mexico wouldn't let him

Tesla Tequila launched in November. Tesla In November, Elon Musk's Tesla brought out a novelty tequila called "Tesla Tequila." Originally, Tesla filed to call the product "Teslaquila," but it was blocked by Mexico's Tequila Regulatory Council (CRT). Essentially if Tesla wanted the prestige of making a tequila, it had to use the word tequila without changing it so as to avoid diluting the brand. Tesla tried to argue the brand name was just "Tesla" with "quila" attached, but the Mexican Inst...

A Massive Upgrade Makes the Classic Super Nintendo Super Scope Work on Modern TVs

Despite a renaissance in outdated gaming tech, there’s a small blip in the history of retro gaming hardware that has all been all but abandoned in the emulation scene: light guns. The way the technology worked simply isn’t compatible with modern TVs and screens, so if you want to get something like the Super…Read more...

Artificial Intelligence, Algorithmic Racism and the Canadian Criminal Justice System

Recidivism risk assessment is the process of determining the likelihood that an accused, convicted, or incarcerated persons will reoffend. The process is aimed at assisting in the determination of the appropriate limitation on the freedom of the subject. With innovation in technology especially in the area of artificial intelligence (AI), recidivism risk assessment tools built on AI technology are now well-developed and used in the criminal justice system. Algorithmic tools are increasingly bein...

Analogue takes on the TurboGrafx-16 with its Duo retro console

Analogue’s beautiful, functional retro gaming consoles provide a sort of “archival quality” alternative to the cheap mini-consoles proliferating these days. The latest system to be resurrected by the company is the ill-fated, but still well-thought-of TurboGrafx-16 or PC Engine. The Duo, as Analogue’s device is called, is named after a later version of the TurboGrafx-16 that included its expensive CD-ROM add-on — and indeed the new Duo supports both game cards and CDs, provided they have survive...

Why CRT monitors were better

You could spend a grand or more for a 20-year-old widescreen 24" Sony Trinitron, still have to pay for adapters and shipping, and you'd still end up with a giant, heavy, clunky box on your desk. But its 1440p resolution at 80hz is still respectable for games, the blacks are pure, and there's no input lag or motion blur. — Read the rest

New limits on IRAs lead to other opportunities, incentives

As discussed in last week’s column, the Secure Act passed in December 2019 made some changes to IRAs that were not beneficial to those people hoping to pass their IRAs down to their heirs in a tax-efficient manner. The opportunity to stretch distributions from an IRA over a beneficiary’s lifetime (and therefore accrue tax-free income inside the trust for a longer period) was effectively done away with for all but spouses. Then along came COVID-19 and the never-before-seen hit to the economy. But...

Learning From “Building Planes in the Sky”

My heart goes out to everyone – because everyone is affected by the COVID19 pandemic in some way, personally, professionally, or both. At the risk of seeming insensitive, this situation is both a tragedy and an opportunity. In terms of my work life, what is weighing most heavily on my mind is how we can use this opportunity to reimagine the family justice system and replace it with something new. As many have already pointed out (here and here for example), the COVID19 crisis is exposing signifi...

Salvaging a Derelict Mac SE/30

(Lengthy blog post. Sit back and bring your favorite beverage…) Based on the last several blog posts, it should be obvious that I’ve been bitten by the bug that is retrocomputing. I had so much fun resurrecting my Mac SE FDHD that I wanted a new challenge. Several months ago, I bid and won a Mac SE/30 on eBay. From the seller’s own photos, the Mac was listed as “sold as is”. From the seller’s photos, the case was yellowed, but intact. The machine did not boot, but displayed the infamous Simasima...

The Future of Justice in a COVID-19 World

I wrote this column and submitted it to Slaw on March 6, back when we didn’t know how good we had it. I’m writing this new prologue on March 17, with much of Canada and the world effectively in lockdown because of COVID-19. I thought about rewriting the column to reflect our new reality. Instead, I’m adding a frame around it, because I think the column still stands on its own merits. But COVID-19 and our societal responses to it are in the process of crushing our slow, creaky, in-person justice ...

Understanding Estate Tax and How it Works

Understanding the Estate Tax and How It Works The estate tax tends to get a lot of press – especially in an election year. Some folks call it the “death tax.” But it’s a tax that impacts a very, very small segment of the population. That doesn’t mean you can forget about it completely. It’s smart to look at it when you’re planning the rest of your estate. Even if you’re never on the hook for the federal estate tax, you might need to pay them to the state. Here’s what you need to know. What is t...

The EC and the ERLC: A Dangerous Overreach

First, the disclaimer. I’m on the Ethics and Religious Liberty Commission (ERLC) Leadership Council. Which by the way, and contrary to the belief of some phone calls I have received, has no authority or power at the ERLC but is a group of about 80 people who were nominated / chosen to “receive intentional investment from the ERLC and serve as ambassadors for the organization.” You can read more about the Leadership Council HERE. I suppose it should be said that I have come full circle in my appr...

Perhaps this is why abuse victims and their advocates always seem to be spittin’ mad at the SBC

Those of us who follow these things have probably thought that abuse victims and their advocates are in a perpetual state of anger at “the SBC.” Two abuse victims wrote here that “There is a tipping point, though, at which genuine advocacy slips into routine outrage…” I thought that to be a cogent statement at the time…but then, cases keep coming forward. There are a number of abuse stories involving the SBC that feature megachurches, celebrity pastors, and notorious cases that are years, decad...

Is it worth it? SBC resolutions and SBC Pastor’s Conference

The Pastor’s Conference is the largest and easiest target around. Make all SBCers happy? Sort of like making all of your church members happy. Not a snowflake’s chance in Gehenna of that. Back when Adrian Rogers would always close the Pastor’s Conference it was a thrilling event indeed. Not so much now. Dave Miller and his gang had the last, best PC. It was innovative, focused on the ordinary SBC pastor rather than celebrities, an authentic grassroots enterprise. It was that PC, one should reme...

Critical Race Theory and Intersectionality: A useful analytical tool or a dangerous ideology (or both)?

The debate in the Southern Baptist world about Critical Race Theory and Intersectionality (CRT/I) continues. As new questions and possible actions about Resolution 9 emerge, many are asking the question: Is CRT/I a useful analytical tool or a dangerous ideology? I submit that it is both. Previously, Albert Mohler has spoken forthrightly about the issue and Owen Strachan has recently written a series of posts on the issue and they are helpful in demonstrating the origins of CRT/I and the dangers...

Restoring a Mac SE FDHD: Retrobright and Recapping Fun

What a long, strange trip it has been. For the better part of two months, I’ve been on a journey to resurrect the venerable Mac SE FDHD that I bought on Craigslist for $30. Like any journey, there have been trials and travails, as well as moments of joy and victory. In the process, I’ve not only learned a lot more about classic Macs, but I’ve come away with a newfound love of fixing up vintage computers that I did not expect to have. Disassembly The first order of business was to disassemble t...
