Holmes and Geauga are Among Several County Fairs Scrambling to Reopen Safely

Getting Through Quarantine With New Sherlock Material

Sure, sure, Arthur Conan Doyle died long ago, and both the BBC and CBS versions of modern Holmes have hung up their deerstalkers, but there’s always new Holmes material out there. Except … where is the movie, or better yet, a multi-year series, for Mary Russell? – Los Angeles Times

NBA: Clippers’ Lou Williams must quarantine 10 days after outside the bubble excursion

Amazon, Apple, Facebook, and Google CEOs to face antitrust committee that owns $100K+ of those companies’ stocks

Business Insider’s Aaron Holmes reports that three of the lawmakers tasked with leading an antitrust investigation into the operations of Amazon, Apple, Facebook, and Google own more than $100,000 in stocks of those tech firms — not the best way to run a probe. In their coverage, Holmes noted that Rep. Jim Sensenbrenner from Wisconsin owns more than $98,000 in stocks in all four companies combined; Rep. Zoe Lofgren of California has between $1,000 and $15,000 of stocks in Facebook, Apple, and Al...

Houston PD decides public can know when police might injure or kill them

For years, Houston PD has kept its use of force policy secret, abetted by a series of Texas Attorneys General. Most of their General Orders were public, but the use of force policy was largely redacted. While the AG upheld Houston's request to keep the policy secret (an example of the transparency losses suffered when the Legislature codified Holmes v. Morales in 1997), to my knowledge, few other departments had followed their lead. Grits always thought that's because keeping the policy secret ...

Unoriginal Joke (Part III): Living Constitutionalism and Social Progress

Charles Barzun In the last   Part   of this series, I suggested that the essential nugget at the heart of “living constitutionalism” is the idea that part of what grounds the constitution’s authority for us is its capacity to adapt (i.e., to respond appropriately) to changing circumstances. I called this the   adaptability claim. Different versions of living constitutionalism fill out the adaptability claim in different ways, for different reasons.     But in my view, one quite tra...

‘Enola Holmes’ First Look: Netflix Debuts Images of Millie Bobby Brown as Sherlock Holmes’ Little Sister

Enola Holmes is on the case. Haven’t heard of her?

BIPOC summer camps

Most summers, millions of US children head off to spend a week, a month, or the whole summer attending camp, where they’ll enjoy the restorative power of nature, learn new skills, strengthen friendships, and hopefully build upon a lifelong relationship with the outdoors. The problem is, these camps are not representative of the country as a whole. “Only about four percent of campers in America identify as Black or African-American, even though we make up 13 to 14 percent of the population,” ...

So many more federal sentence reductions using § 3582(c)(1)(A) to report before week concludes

I love The New York Times, but what they did was wrong

The New York Times is the best newspaper in the world, writes veteran journalist Steven A. Holmes, who worked there for 15 years. But the paper's actions after the publication of Sen. Tom Cotton's controversial op-ed have been a mistake that sends a potentially dangerous message, Holmes says.

Unmatched isn’t just a great board game series – it’s an excuse to play out the wildest showdowns from the depths of your geekiest daydreams.

At the end of the day, Unmatched is the board game series where King Arthur can battle Bigfoot, where Bruce Lee can take on the raptors from Jurassic Park, where Robin Hood ...

Where UCLA stands in the secondary entering the 2020 season

Between 2018 and 2019, UCLA actually got worse when it came to defending the pass. After allowing 245.5 yards through the air in 2018, the Bruins regressed and surrendered 310.8 passing yards per game in 2019 — a stat ranking them as the second-worst pass defense in the FBS. If it wasn’t clear in 2018, it became bluntly obvious in 2019: UCLA needs serious improvement in its secondary. With a new defensive backs coach and two incoming grad transfers, along with the return of the unit’s core playe...

Is there a plugin allowing me to fill a certain column simply based on tags?

For example, if a book has a tag named "Holmes", I hope this plugin can automatically fill a custom column "Genre" with "Detective Fiction". Certainly I can do a search for tag:"Holmes" and edit the metadata in bulk to manually change the "Genre" column, but I have to do this every time I added new books. I'm wanting this plugin because my tags are auto-generated, but I hope to convert these tags into a custom column rather than being tags.

The 10 Best Sherlock Holmes Stories

Over the course of 40 years during the late 19th and early 20th century, Arthur Conan Doyle published 60 Sherlock Holmes tales in the form of four short novels and 56 short stories (which are generally published in five separate collections). The adventures of Doyle’s iconic detective proved a craze from the start, and since then, no character has been as reproduced and adapted in film, television, stage, and the printed word.  I’d long been intrigued by the idea of Sherlock, but wasn’t real...
