NHRA’s Shawn Langdon anticipates another smooth run in Virginia

For the second consecutive season, Virginia Motorsports Park is hosting an NHRA national event. Once a staple of the drag racing schedule, the North Dinwiddie facility lost its spot on the national tour due to a poor racing surface. However, a repavement and the loss of racing dates in New Jersey allowed the sanctioning body to return in 2017. It’s been a hit with the drivers. “It’s one of the parts of the country where you walk in the gates and the fans are so appreciative you showed up,” said ...

NHRA Charlotte: Langdon earns first Funny Car victory; Torrence, Hines also win

Since Shawn Langdon switched from Top Fuel to Funny Car for the first time in his career at the start of the 2018 season, it would not be surprising if some of his fans began to set their watches to him. After all, when you switch to another class from one in which you earned 14 career wins and the 2013 Top Fuel championship, it likely was just a matter of time before Langdon would achieve success in a Funny Car. And indeed it finally was Langdon's time Sunday in the NGK Spark Plugs NHRA Fo...

If Wolves want to keep Saunders, will that impact search for top executive?

Our Chris Hine provided clarity and a time framework to the Wolves' search for a new President of Basketball Operations, reporting on Sunday that the field of four candidates is set and that interviews will begin this week. The process is expected to last 7-10 days, meaning that perhaps next week there will be an announcement. The candidates are not surprising based on the reporting along the way: Chauncey Billups, a former Wolves player long discussed as a possibility for a front office role he...

Section 230 Protects Twitter’s Decision to Suspend User’s Account–Mezey v. Twitter

This decision is from July but just showed up in Westlaw. Mezey sued Twitter for suspending his account. The opinion doesn’t provide any background about the account or why Twitter suspended it. The court easily dismissed the lawsuit  on Section 230 grounds. Here’s the court’s entire substantive analysis (paragraph breaks added): First, Twitter—as a platform that transmits, receives, displays, organizes, and hosts content—is an interactive computer service. 47 U.S.C. § 230(f)(2) (defining intera...

5 Points On What We Know About Ross’ Quest For A Census Citizenship Question

Whether Commerce Secretary Wilbur Ross will be deposed in the lawsuits challenging his move to add a citizenship question to the census is now in the Supreme Court’s hands. But from the internal documents released with the litigation, and the excerpts of his deputies’ depositions that have also made their way in to court filings, it’s become clear that the stated reason for adding it — for Voting Rights Act enforcement — was an after-the-fact justification pursued by his top aides. Ross’ aide...

Langdon Tactical 92 Elite LTT – Video Review

Langdon Tactical 92 Elite LTT U.S.A. –-(Ammoland.com)- 15 years of active duty service in the Army left me with a bad taste in the mouth for Beretta 92s.  The M-9 pistols we had were temperamental despite the NATO loads we fed them.  Accuracy may have been mechanically sound, but the limited training we had combined with an unpredictable trigger meant that although we could qualify with the gun, I was not about to run out and buy one for my own.I've since come to understand that poor training ...

In June, the lower court for the unfair competition claim. I didn’t blog that ruling because it clearly wasn’t the final word (plus, it was just a hearing transcript).

Scientists discover a secret to how cells sort RNA into droplets

A longstanding mystery in biology is how the millions of molecules bumping around in a cell “find” one another and organize into functional structures. So it was a big surprise in 2008 when participants in the Marine Biological Laboratory physiology course realized that simple phase separations—like oil separating from water—may be one important way to create order inside a cell. While not without controversy, this idea has taken cell biology by storm. In the past decade, scientists have watche...

Unlimited MoviePass deal could be too good to survive

MoviePass is trying to bring to movie theaters what Netflix did for DVDs and online streaming: Let subscribers watch as many movies as they want for $10 a month. In doing so, MoviePass has struck a chord with moviegoers and a nerve with the movie industry. For many people, going to the movies is worth it only a few times a year. Ticket prices keep rising, and moviegoers have plenty of cheaper alternatives, including Netflix. MoviePass believes it can get people to theaters more often. Major thea...

NHRA kicks off 68th season with Winternationals in Pomona

Drag racing has long been a staple in Southern California, dating to 1951 when Wally Parks founded the National Hot Rod Association in an effort to introduce safety to what many considered an outlaw street sport. Ten years later, the new sanctioning body added the Winternationals as its second national meet. It was on the same quarter-mile strip on the Los Angeles County Fairgrounds where the Pomona police tried to provide a safe haven for racers. It’s been a success ever since. NHRA, one the co...

SCOTUS for law students: Splitting the free speech community

Tuesday’s oral argument in Masterpiece Cakeshop, Ltd. v.

The Supreme Court is not alone in being divided, however. The closely watched case has also split the community of First Amendment lawyer...
