Five Below, one of the most successful retailers in America, blends bargains, experience

By Taylor Telford, The Washington Post Stepping into Five Below feels like being sucked into an arcade game. For kids, succeeding at the game means handling as much merchandise as humanly possible, accruing points for every fingerprint left on a Hatchimal (a big-eyed plush creature that hatches from a speckled egg) or sparkly slime. For adults, the game means navigating the labyrinth of glitter, neon and Instagrammable products to find something fun and surprisingly worthwhile. Everyone must avo...

Voters to the CAGOP: Now you’re just somebody that I used to know

Politically speaking, the state of California has always acted as the Ghost of Christmas Future for the rest of the nation.  Whether you’re talking the rise of Reaganism, the anti-tax rebellion that manifested itself through Proposition 13  or enacting Proposition 187 to deny public services to undocumented residents, the Golden State has always wrestled with public policy issues years before they were ever debated on the national stage. If this truth holds, Republicans across the nation are in ...

California reduces reach of its broad felony-murder law, and provides for retroactive sentence reductions accordingly

In my Criminal Law class, we just finished a unit on mens rea and are about to start on homicide laws.  This interesting legal news out of California, headlined "California sets new limits on who can be charged with felony murder," comes at a very convenient time for me. Much more importantly, the law might mean less time in prison for others who got convicted of murder despite having no intent to kill. Here are the basic details: Gov. Jerry Brown signed legislation on Sunday that limits who ca...

$1 Million in Retirement Savings Can Disappear in 11 Years

Having at least $1 million in retirement savings is a common — if increasingly lofty — goal for American seniors, but a new breakdown shows even that amount can disappear quickly. Retirees in a handful of southern states can stretch their $1 million nest egg the farthest, according to a new analysis from GoBankingRates, a personal finance website. Those six figures will last 26 years in Mississippi, the longest out of any of the 50 states, followed by Oklahoma at 24.8. Alabama, Arkansas, and lon...

‘Show your taxes’ — Could California really force presidential contenders to do it?

By Ben Christopher, CALmatters There’s sometimes a fine line between good governance and trolling. One of this year’s most controversial—if not quite as consequential—state bills is a proposal by Democratic Sen. Mike McGuire of Healdsburg that would require presidential candidates to release their tax returns before they can appear on a California ballot. Proponents insist this is simply about providing voters with useful, nay necessary, information about any and all presidential candidates. Did...

Where Did 'Dumpster Fire' Come From? Where Is It Rolling?

In 2009, sportswriter Mike Wise had just started a radio show at 106.7 The Fan, a Washington D.C.-area sports station. Wise, now a senior writer at The Undefeated, noticed that one of his work buddies, a traffic reporter at the station named Liz Drabick, had an evocative pet phrase. "Whenever someone was having a really bad day, or someone was completely out of sorts, she'd just go, 'Oh man, guy's a dumpster fire.' Or she'd go, 'Oh, that whole organization is a dumpster fire,'" Wise recalled in...
