Australia has long had a gay beach subculture but they haven't always been safe spaces

How gay-friendly is Australia’s beach culture?Cast your vote in Australia’s best beach poll“Surfers go to south Bondi, backpackers, families and people from western Sydney go in the middle, then gays go to north Bondi.”The advice Dan Murphy was given upon arriving in Sydney from Queensland’s Sunshine Coast in 2003 is an unspoken rule. For Australia’s famous but relatively small beach, each social group is remarkably compartmentalised. It was to become prophetic: Murphy is now one of 1,094 Lifesa...

Know Your Schitt! A Guide To The Cast & Characters Of Schitt's Creek

PSA: Performing Construction Work in Virginia Requires a Contractor’s License

As a Virginia construction attorney, I often get calls for assistance in dealing with payment disputes.  Frequently, these calls come from out of state contractors and subcontractors that have performed work in Virginia. One of the first questions that I ask is whether these contractors and subcontractors hold a contractor license from the Commonwealth of Virginia. While most do, some do not, likley because they are unaware of the requirement in Virginia that all contractors be licensed when per...

Team USA Takes Silver at Women’s U18 World: A Post-Mortem

Team USA took the silver medal at the Women’s World U18 championships over the weekend after a heart-breaking 3-2 overtime defeat against rival Canada. The loss snapped a string of four consecutive gold medals in the event, and ended a run of US dominance in every major international tournament dating back to the 2014 Four Nations Cup.

Why Danny Murphy thinks Arsenal, Chelsea & Man United shouldn’t sign anyone in January

January window: Arsenal, Chelsea & Man United It’s almost the halfway mark in the January transfer window, and the big clubs in England have largely yet to make serious moves. The exception are Chelsea, who have spent almost 60 million pounds securing Christian Pulisic’s summer arrival. Arsenal fans are hoping for some deals. The Gunners have looked porous at the back, and lacking in creativity in midfield. As for Man United, defenders continue to be linked to Old Trafford. But will Ole Gunnar ...

Here's how the government shutdown could affect the race between Amazon and Microsoft for a $10 billion Pentagon cloud contract (AMZN, MSFT, ORCL, IBM)

The bid for the Joint Enterprise Defense Infrastructure (JEDI) contract, a $10 billion cloud contract with the Pentagon that cloud giants are competing for, might potentially be delayed because of the government shutdown, some analysts say. Since the Department of Defense wasn't closed from the shutdown, there won't be a direct impact on the JEDI race. However, the shutdown could affect government cybersecurity, the ability of companies to obtain government security certifications, and the tim...

Empirical SCOTUS: Which Supreme Court cases are generating the most interest?

This Supreme Court term, like the past several before it, has been slow out of the gates. It also marks another term with a new justice – this time Justice Brett Kavanaugh. The justices often find consensus both early on in a term and after a largescale change, defining or redefining their jurisprudential boundaries only later. The justices have released five decisions in argued cases so far, all of them free even from concurrences. This is a new high count for unanimous decisions without a conc...

Interviewing for Cultural Fit? You’re Doing It Wrong

There’s tension between two things every business claims to want: cultural cohesion and employee diversity. It’s natural to want to hire people who “fit” into the company’s existing culture. Economist Sara Ellison, the lead author of a Massachusetts Institute of Technology study on gender diversity, notes that homogeneous offices have more social capital because they tend toward cooperation. Although homogeneity may make employees feel comfortable, Ellison’s study found it’s not necessarily co...

Team USA Perfect Through Two at Women’s U18 Worlds

The United States Women’s U18 team is off to a 2-0 start at the World U18s in Japan after winning their opening game against Russia and then defeating Canada, both by 3-2 scores. It’s not unexpected to see the US perfect through their first two games, but a great start nonetheless. These games were both played at 2am my local time—I’m all for growing the game, but never put one of these in Asia again please—so I only made it through the first period of the Russia game, and just watched th...

How to use the passive voice

Writing instructors and books often inveigh against the passive voice. My thrift-store copy of Strunk and White’s 1957 Element of Style says “Use the Active Voice,” explaining that it is “more direct and vigorous than the passive.” And George Orwell, in his 1946 essay on “Politics and the English Language,” scolds us to “Never use the passive where you can use the active.”The passive is an easy target but used strategically, it can be an important part of any writer’s repertoire. The passive all...

Argument preview: Tribes, treaties and animals return to the Supreme Court

In January 2014, Clayvin Herrera, a member of the Apsáalooke Nation, also known as the Crow Tribe, went hunting on the nation’s reservation in Montana. He and his companions successfully bagged three elk, but their pursuit had taken them outside the reservation borders into the Bighorn National Forest in Wyoming. Wyoming authorities subsequently charged Herrera with violating state hunting laws. Wyoming’s prosecution has led the Supreme Court to venture yet again into the interpretation of tri...
