Relist Watch

John Elwood reviews Monday’s relists. I’m today, so I’m going to be more summary than usual. The April calendar already appears to have a full complement of 12 cases, but the court in theory could add to it with this Friday’s grants. Admittedly, if it does so, petitioners won’t have the full 30 days to file reply briefs before oral argument. After this Friday, the court’s next scheduled conference isn’t until February 15 – almost a month from now. And any cases granted at that conference will ...

Simple rules predict and explain biological mutualism

Scientists have long employed relatively simple guidelines to help explain the physical world, from Newton's second law of motion to the laws of thermodynamics. Biomedical engineers at Duke University have used dynamic modeling and machine learning to construct similarly simple rules for complex biology. They have devised a framework to accurately interpret and predict the behavior of mutually beneficial biological systems, such as human gut bacteria, plants and pollinators, or algae and corals.

Panthers owner: Team needs contingency plan behind QB Newton

CHARLOTTE, N.C. (AP) — Panthers owner David Tepper says it’s important for the team to have a solid contingency plan in place at quarterback next season given the uncertainty surrounding franchise QB Cam Newton’s bothersome right shoulder. Newton struggled most of the season throwing the ball more than 15 yards downfield because of a lingering […]

Eight new grants, Ginsburg recovery from surgery “on track”

One day after Politico reported that White House officials were preparing for the possible “death or departure” of Justice Ruth Bader Ginsburg, who had surgery in late December to remove two cancerous growths from her lungs, the Supreme Court announced today that there was no evidence of any other cancer, and that the 85-year-old Ginsburg would not require any further treatment. Ginsburg’s recovery from surgery is “on track,” Supreme Court spokeswoman Kathleen Arberg said in a statement, althoug...

Relist Watch Returns

John Elwood reviews the first relists of 2019. Happy New Year and welcome back! Most of D.C. started 2019 nice and slow, enjoying offices (and roads) made quiet by vacations, both planned and unexpected. But not the Supremes. They jumped in with both feet, when most of the lawyering class was still finishing off their fruit baskets. On January 4, the court gave plenary review to the Maryland and North Carolina political-gerrymandering cases and set them for expedited briefing so they could be ...

Are Smartphones Necessary Anymore?

When I was researching Digital Minimalism, I came across an interesting article written by Vlad Savov for The Verge. It was titled: “It’s time to bring back the dumb phone.” I’ve both read and written numerous articles about the negative aspects of the modern smartphone, and have interviewed many people who have returned to a simpler alternative with few regrets. But what caught my attention about Savov’s piece was the following new (to me) argument he made in favor of stepping back ...

Newton’s First Law and Your Life

IN 1686, Sir Isaac Newton presented three laws of motion. The first law is often referred to as the Law of Inertia. The law states that every object will remain at rest or continue in a straight line unless compelled to change its state by the action of an external force. In other words, things stay the way they are unless something comes along to disrupt them. This law has the power to make us or break us. And it is at work in our lives all day, every day whether we are conscious of it or not....

God Moves in a Mysterious Way: Hope for the Hard Years Ahead

New Year’s Day, 1773, marked a decade since depression nearly snatched away William Cowper’s life. The mental agony tortured him so severely ten winters prior that he was locked up in St. Alban’s insane asylum after a botched suicide attempt. While there, he stumbled upon a Bible that the asylum’s Christian director had strategically left open. His eyes fell upon Romans 3:23–26, and the glory of Jesus Christ chased the shadows from his soul. But by the beginning of 1773, successive blo...

Why Don’t Atheists Show More Curiosity About Their Own Beliefs?

We Christians get charged with believing things uncritically, not showing sufficient curiosity about other beliefs, or about how ours could be true. I’ve got the same sort of question for atheists.* Thinking Christian commenter Benjamin Cain supposes that the God Christians worship is a “human-like,” “monstrous,” “psychopathic,” “jealous, irrational, sadistic tyrant,” waving the equivalent of a “magic wand.” That’s all found in just one single tour de force of a comment. He’s not alone; Richard ...

5 holidays to celebrate this year that aren’t Christmas

Christmas is an all consuming holiday, celebrated even in cultures where Christianity never took root. However, some people just can't take it anymore. Some of them even invented new holidays as alternatives. While some of the holidays are celebrated half jokingly, they all offer an escape from an often overbearing Christmas season. Christmas can be maddening. Between the endless barrage of tacky songs, rampant commercialization, and saccharin sentimentality, some of us can't wait for it to end....

God Saved a Wretch Like Him: John Newton (1725–1807)

Throughout his 82-year life, John Newton was a depraved sailor; a miserable outcast on the coast of West Africa; a slave-trading sea captain; a well-paid surveyor of tides in Liverpool; a beloved pastor of two congregations in Olney and London for 43 years; a devoted husband to Mary for 40 years until she died; a personal friend to William Wilberforce, John Wesley, and George Whitefield; and finally, the author of the most famous hymn in the English language, “Amazing Grace.” Why am I inter...

Playful Desk Sculptures Backed by Science!

Orbiforms are interesting for the way they stand at the intersection of science and fun, like a slinky, or a Newton’s cradle. They’re engaging, handsy, and boost attention while relieving stress. What are they specifically? They’re constant-width solids… or solids that aren’t completely spherical, but roll as smoothly as a sphere does (the GIF down the page shows you exactly what I mean). It was commonly accepted for the longest time that the sphere was the only solid of constant width, i.e., ...

Panthers opponents knew Cam Newton couldn’t throw deep

The Panthers would obviously prefer having a healthy Cam Newton on the field the last two weeks. Panthers wide receiver Jarius Wright admitted that defensive backs have told him lately that they weren’t worried about Newton going deep on them, which changed the way they game-planned. The Panthers decided to shut the former MVP down because of persistent shoulder pain, and let backup Taylor Heinicke finish things up.

Cam Newton wasted time signaling first down, talking to Saints before halftime

With 34 seconds left in the first half on Monday night, Panthers quarterback Cam Newton ran up the middle for a first down. Instead, Newton got up, walked toward the end zone, made a first down signal, and then slowly walked back toward the line of scrimmage, stopping to exchange words with Saints linebacker Alex Anzalone. Newton had wasted 11 seconds, and two plays later he threw an interception in the end zone.

Panthers coach Ron Rivera hasn't ruled out shutting down quarterback Cam Newton for the season because of a sore right throwing shoulder. Rivera said Tuesday he plans to meet with Newton later in the week and figure out where he is ''in terms of his physical state and mental state'' before deciding if he will start Sunday against Atlanta. ''It's a tough situation right now,'' Rivera added.

Panthers QB Newton laments shoulder issues

Carolina Panthers quarterback Cam Newton opened up about his sore shoulder after Monday night's loss to the New Orleans Saints, saying that it hasn't gotten better - or worse - and that he just doesn't "have the strength, from the range of motion." "It is what we expected it to be. It is what it was, just a lot of soreness and tension in the joints," Newton told reporters during his postgame comments. "It doesn't matter how much you push," Newton said.

The end of the first half of Monday Night Football summed up all that’s exciting and frustrating about Cam Newton.
