Emergence Capital co-founder Jason Green on transitioning out of the firm, and what’s next

Succession is a major issue for many venture firms. Institutional investors, founders — even reporters — often get attached to individual members of a team, and when one of those individuals, particularly a firm co-founder, decides to hang up his cleats, it can be tricky for the rest of the partnership if it hasn’t planned far enough ahead. For its part, Emergence, a highly successful enterprise-focused venture firm, has been thinking about succession for at least the last decade, suggests Jason...

Interesting and critical accounting of Biden Administration's criminal justice work over first 100 days

This new lengthy Law360 piece, headlined "Biden Falls Short On Criminal Justice Reform In First 100 Days," provides a fittingly critical review of the Biden Administration's criminal justice work over its first 100 days in office.  I recommend the piece in full, and here are some highlights (along with an interesting graphic): President Joe Biden made a slew of campaign promises on the criminal justice reform front that he has made little progress on in his first 100 days in office, disappointi...

Big companies raising wages could boost pay for workers at nearby businesses

Kena Betancur/VIEWpress/Getty Images A working paper, as first reported by The New York Times, looks at minimum wage raises at major retailers. The authors find "substantial spillovers" from the companies' voluntary minimum wage increases. This includes other firms increasing their wages to the amounts announced at these large companies. See more stories on Insider's business page. In recent years, big companies like Amazon have publicly increased the minimum wage they pay workers...

"Mr. Jacobs’s parody of the Great American Songbook prompted Irving Berlin and a group of song publishers representing the work of Cole Porter, Rodgers and Hammerstein and others to sue..."

"... Mad’s parent company, E.C. Publications, for copyright infringement. At issue was 'Sing Along With Mad,' a pullout section published in 1961 that consisted entirely of song parodies by Mr. Jacobs and Larry Siegel. Among them were 'Louella Schwartz Describes Her Malady' (a lampoon of Berlin’s 'A Pretty Girl Is Like a Melody') and 'The First Time I Saw Maris' (a spoof of Jerome Kern and Oscar Hammerstein II’s 'The Last Time I Saw Paris'), about the commercialization of the Yankee slugger Ro...

US stocks mixed ahead of Biden's infrastructure plan announcement

Whicker: Chargers’ Corey Linsley protects, on and off the field

In April 2014, Corey Linsley came in 160th in the NFL’s annual beauty contest. Five months later, he was snapping the ball to Aaron Rodgers on the first play of the NFL season. Talk about survive and advance. J.C. Tretter, the starting center, was hurt two weeks earlier. Linsley’s moment came at him like a locomotive through a tunnel. It did not help that the opponent was Seattle, in Seattle, where quarterbacks and eardrums are pressured equally. The Seahawks were reigning Super Bowl champs, and...

It will be an emotional night as St. Francis plays first game without coach Jim Bonds on Saturday

It will be an emotional night for the St. Francis football team when it travels to play Mira Costa on Saturday in their coronavirus-shortened season spring opener at 7 p.m., because for the first time in two decades, coach Jim Bonds will not be with them. Bonds, who also was a star quarterback at Hart High in the 1980s and later played at UCLA, died Oct. 28 after a battle with cancer. It was in the spring of 2018 that he was diagnosed with multiple myeloma. He was 51. Ted Corcoran, a close frien...

How this 1979 LA murder-for-hire led to the true crime investigation ‘The Darkest Glare’

In the late 1990s, after Chip Jacobs left his job as a reporter for the Los Angeles Daily News to begin work on his first book, he headed to Hollywood Boulevard to meet up with a source, the developer-turned-community activist named Jerry Schneiderman. “I wanted the next great investigative idea, but he wanted to start telling me about his past,” says Jacobs on a recent video call from his home office in Pasadena. The story Jacobs’ source shared that day would become the basis for “The Darkest G...

Ping-pong.

An amusing 2007 piece by Roger Ebert, “The Ping of Pong: Mystery Solved,” discusses the origins of the term “ping pong,” mainly quoting variously indignant (“I am very sad to see you trapped by your own ignorance”) and would-be scholarly (“As someone who lives in China and has an obsessive need to correct facts, I need to take issue with Nic Hautamaki’s statement that ping pong is derived from Mandarin”) communications from readers. The two most informative are these: Arsen Azizyan, New Haven C...

Under Biden order, workers refusing unsafe work could stay on unemployment aid

By Jonnelle Marte, Ann Saphir | Reuters Many workers called back by employers resuming or expanding operations despite the ongoing coronavirus pandemic face a dilemma: return to jobs that put them at high risk of the virus, or say no, and risk going without pay or unemployment benefits. President Joe Biden argues workers should not have to make that choice. An executive order signed on his second full day in office could make it easier for people to still qualify for jobless benefits if they qui...

Joe Biden's plan to increase the minimum wage to $15 won't just help workers: A new study finds that lower wages cost taxpayers over $100 billion a year

President-elect Joe Biden speaks at The Queen theater in Wilmington, Del., Wednesday, Dec. 9, 2020. Susan Walsh/AP President-elect Joe Biden has called for a $15 per hour federal minimum wage as part of his new $1.9 trillion stimulus package. That increase could materially impact millions of workers, and provide relief for public safety net programs.  While President Donald Trump has argued raising the minimum wage could harm employers, it hasn't been shown to impact employment.

Eighth Circuit Strips Qualified Immunity From Cop Who Pulled Over A Driver For Flipping Her Off (techdirt)

It should be pretty clearly established by now that giving the finger to public officials (in every case listed here, police officers) is protected expression. Even if the expression isn't protected, it sure as shit doesn't justify detainment, arrest, or the seizure of someone's property. Decisions have been handed down by both state and federal courts saying giving a cop the bird is protected expression. And if it isn't necessarily protected (due to courts not seeing anything that justifies d...
