The Blue Wall Of Silence

This article is part of TPM Cafe, TPM’s home for opinion and news analysis. “Most cops are punks. They ain’t going to say shit. But I don’t care. I always say what I want.” I sat a minute with that statement and not only because it was coming from a friend. I sat with it because my friend is a retired NYPD cop who spent 22 years on the force. David Wright, 69, was talking to me from the comforts of quarantine. I was asking Wright why no Black or brown cop I emailed and called was willing to go o...

Revenge Porn the "new normal" for Britons

Driven by a policy among U.K. police and prosecutors to not pursue rape cases, convictions slumped to their lowest level on record last year despite more reports from victims. The 59% decline since 2016 was accompanied by police and prosecutors demanding access to victims' devices, a tacit admission that they did not want to work for any but the most perfectly chaste victims. The situation is so bad that the government recently threatened the Crown Prosecution Service with rape prosecution quota...

Coronavirus: USC again scales back on-campus plans for fall

With the state and county still unwilling to clear the way for colleges and universities to resume in-person classes due to the coronavirus pandemic, USC confirmed today its fall semester will begin solely with online instruction, with some limited exceptions for clinical education. University officials said last month that classes would be primarily online, but some courses were going to be offered in a “hybrid” format of in-person and online sessions, with 10% to 20% of classes conducted in pe...

The history of the word “sword”: Part 2

Last week (May 27, 2020), I discussed two attempts to solve the etymology of sword. The second of them would not have deserved so much attention if Elmar Seebold, the editor of the best-known German etymological dictionary, had not cited it as the only one possibly worthy of attention. His is a minority opinion, which does not mean it is wrong, though I believe it is.Whenever we try to reconstruct a linguistic fact, it is reasonable to follow the model of widening circles: first look for the sou...

Trump Camp Goes After CNN Op-Ed In New Lawsuit Following Similar NYT And WaPo Suits

On the heels of a warning from federal regulators on Tuesday, controversial blood-transfusion startup Ambrosia allegedly stopped giving the treatments, its website said. Last month, Business Insider reported exclusively that the startup claimed to be up and running in 5 cities. Ambrosia had allegedly been charging $8,000 to fill your veins with the blood of young people, despite little to no hard evidence that the procedure had any benefits. As Business Insider previously reported, several res...

Regulators are warning people against filling their veins with young blood, but a controversial startup is charging $8,000 to do it

When the Badly-Behaved Party Is Opposing Counsel

We are hearing more and more often from SRLs about “sharp practice” when they face a lawyer on the other side of their case. There are many common elements to these reports, which I find to be largely credible. SRLs believe that their unfamiliarity with the legal system, combined with the tendency of some judges to assume the worst of them – that their cases are without merit, or that they are “vexatious” and abusing the process when they make honest mistakes and misjudgments – is being exploite...

Reconciliation in the Midlands

Last year, in the English midlands city of Wolverhampton discovered human remains during construction of a new city market. Eventually 20 sets of remains would be found, children under age 7, who had been buried around the Temple Street Independent Chapel in the eighteenth century.   The chapel served a congregation of dissenters from the Church of England. As dissenters, they would not have been allowed burial at an Anglican church. And as times changed, the Temple and its graveyard were forgot...

Spiral House that Frank Lloyd Wright Designed for His Son, Precursor Building to the Guggenheim, Up for Sale

Imagine it's 1950, your dad is Frank Lloyd Wright and you ask him to design a house for you and your wife. Since you live in Arizona, father Frank designs an elevated house with a crazy spiral shape in order to capture cooling winds; years later he'll borrow from the form factor to create the Guggenheim.
