The Complicated Benefits Of Reading Literature

“No one now can go on insisting on the usual beneficial effects of literature without taking serious and systematic account of Currie’s arguments. Not to do so in future will count as intellectual negligence.” – Notre Dame Philosophical Review

Bitcoin is more like risky digital copper than gold as an inflation hedge, Goldman Sachs' top commodities analyst says

Jakub Porzycki/NurPhoto via Getty Images Bitcoin is closer to "digital copper" than "digital gold", according to Goldman's top commodities analyst. That's because bitcoin and copper act as "risk-on" inflationary hedges, while gold is "risk-off," he said. Commodities remain the best inflation hedge because they rely on demand, the bank's research team said. Sign up here for our daily newsletter, 10 Things Before the Opening Bell. Investors should view digital currencies as a su...

SF Book Review – Part 36: The Puppet Masters and Moar

Now that we’ve gotten the Movie Awards and various year-end recaps out of the way, it’s time to catch up on some science fiction reading. I did cover a few things already during Vintage SF Month, but I’ve been sorta slacking on the SF front of late. Still, I’ve read some things lately that are interesting enough. The Puppet Masters by Robert A. Heinlein – I read this towards the end of Vintage SF Month but never got around to doing a full writeup. Slug-like alien parasites have arrived on ear...

Far-right police officers have been serving all along - the Capitol riot just pointed them out

Security forces respond with tear gas after Trump supporters stormed the US Capitol. Probal Rashid/LightRocket via Getty Images Several off-duty cops were found to be at the Capitol riot on January 6. Three police experts told Insider they weren't surprised to see that. Law-enforcement agents have long had ties to far-right groups, they said, which the riot only exposed. Visit Business Insider's homepage for more stories. At a time when faith in American law enforcement was already at a re...

Leaf-Cutter Ants Have Rocky Crystal Armor, Never Before Seen in Insects

Leaf-cutter ants are named for their Herculean feats: they chomp foliage and carry unwieldy pieces, like green flags many times their size, long distances to their colonies. There they chew up the leaves to feed underground fungus farms. Along the way, the insects brave all manner of predators -- and regularly engage in wars with other ants. But these insects are even tougher than previously thought. From a report: A new study shows that one Central American leaf-cutter ant species has natural a...

Building Bridges Between Private Bar Services and Community Legal Clinics

Community legal clinics have always had strong linkages with the communities they serve and have developed connections with community organizations. They have done this by working with community service agencies and voluntary organizations through different forms of outreach to identify people with legal problems who would probably not otherwise request assistance and by using holistic and integrated approaches to service delivery that identify people experiencing multiple problems and sometimes...

Trump lands in Orange County; critics, supporters rally nearby

With President Donald Trump slated to spend part of the day in Orange County at a private fundraiser in Newport Beach, supporters and critics gathered in public spaces to voice their views. Though voter registration in the long-time Republican stronghold has flipped to favor Democrats, and Hillary Clinton won the county in 2016, Orange County remains a reliable source of campaign money and vocal support for GOP candidates, including Trump. Trump supporters with special clearance greet Presid...

HighTechLending President Talks Reverse Mortgage Opportunities in Pandemic’s Midst

While the reverse mortgage industry has managed to weather the economic shock of the COVID-19 coronavirus pandemic reasonably well in the broader financial situation we’re now living in, some lenders are also still managing to grow. Taking a strategic approach to the ways in which economic shock can be endured or even avoided is something that HighTechLending (HTL) recently had to put into practice, and the results have been positive. This is according to Don Currie, president of the Irvine, ...

Airmen Describe Challenging Mission To Bring COVID-19 Positive Service Member Back To US

TRAVIS AFB (CBS13) – After the longest and perhaps most difficult mission of its kind, an active duty service member with COVID-19 is now back in the US recovering. The mission called for two trans-pacific flights and crew members from several different career fields, considering all the challenges, but two of the Travis Air Force Base team members CBS13 talked with said it all comes with the job. The sensitive, meticulous and critical mission unfolded onboard a C-17. “A mission that’s never...

Cherie Currie talks new music, reviving ‘Queens of Noise’ and how wielding chainsaws is therapeutic

Though the coronavirus global pandemic put a pause on live concerts as well as most planned album releases, rocker and ex-Runaways frontwoman Cherie Currie just wanted to let her latest solo album rip. Currie’s “Blvds of Splendor” had been a decade in the making, but finally dropped digitally back in April via Runaways guitarist Joan Jett and Kenny Laguna’s Blackheart Records. Though the album was originally put out as a very limited edition red-vinyl on Record Store Day in 2019, the digital rel...

Employees at home are being photographed every 5 minutes by an always-on video service to ensure they're actually working — and the service is seeing a rapid expansion since the coronavirus outbreak

As coronavirus spreads, companies are increasingly being forced to work from home — and some are using online conference tools to try to prevent a dip in productivity. Some are turning to tools like Sneek, a group video conference software that's always on by default. Sneek features a "wall of faces" of employees at a company, automatically taking a photo of employees through their webcam every one to five minutes. "Sneek was never designed to spy on anyone," cofounder Del Currie told Business...

Judicial Restraint Cannot Justify Blatant Abuses of Prohibitions in International Law

We all have our views and preferences about how reforms to the legal system and the creation of laws should occur. For example, despite being a regular participant in the justice system, I see the courts as a rather blunt instrument for the creation of law, and it is often ill-suited for dealing with complex social problems. The legislature, with all of the available expertise and resources of the state, is usually far better positioned to carefully examine, explore, and determine the most preci...

Common Law Expansions to Anonymous Defamers Online

The issue of anonymous parties engaging in defamation has been one of the primary issues in online defamation. In many cases, the matter is often resolved as soon as this identity is ascertained. As such, de-anonymizing has been one of the primary strategies employed by plaintiff’s counsel in such actions. In Manson v John Doe, Justice Goldstein granted judgment against an anonymous blogger who had been noted in default, and stated, [20] There are few things more cowardly and insidious than an ...

In a climate of reduced reverse mortgage volume industry-wide, one lender is leaning on its seasoned staff and reliable business practices to maintain its position as a top-10 lender.
