Honourable mention: Soul Reaper

I’m rather glad I’m not reviewing Bob Pipe’s 2019 Brit horror flick because I would have to be horrible about it. It is a cabin in the woods flick that wants to be Cabin in the Woods, if the film were somewhat less self-aware and the operation was run by local yokel’s rather than an international cabal. Drawn out to a cabin in the woods by Charlie (Asher Green), for his (mixed-gender) stag do, the 9 invitees (2 of whom vanish before both the credits and the others arrive) are drawn from the Sta...

Eels – “Good Night On Earth”

Protect Afghanistan’s Truth-Tellers: Human Rights Defenders in a World of Diplomatic Doublespeak

In 2021 the world has witnessed the abject failure of international organizations to curtail even the most grave human rights violations, including war crimes, crimes against humanity and genocide (“atrocity crimes”). The situation in Afghanistan is one case in point. In countries around the globe, international human rights law is routinely violated with impunity. Many are wondering what “human rights” mean when politicians and diplomats toss out the term with ease while remaining reckless or c...

A COVID vaccine mandate would pass constitutional muster

Two weeks ago, the U.S. Supreme Court struck down the eviction moratorium imposed by the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC) as an anti-COVID measure. The reasoning of the court’s opinion, however, would support the CDC if it imposed a vaccine mandate.  So also would settled law regarding the states’ authority over public health. There are many vaccine mandates already in force in America. Members of the armed forces are subject to mandated COVID  vaccinations. Americans over a cert...

And with a vaccine rate of just over 50 percent when you include children under 12 who are ineligible, the country still has a ways to go before reaching herd immunity. A new study shows that Americans have different opinions on whether mask and vaccine mandates for restaurants will lead to them not going to a restaurant. A National Restaurant Association ...

Ubco 2X2 Adventure Bike review: Utility that shreds

A recent move to Auckland, New Zealand — a city with lackluster public transit and hills that can turn a quick bike ride to the store into a sweaty workout — piqued my interest in e-bikes.  Strong demand and skyrocketing prices, however, made it difficult to access these coveted e-bikes here in the Land of the Long White Cloud. That changed after learning about Ubco, the New Zealand-based electric utility bike startup that recently raised $10 million from investors.  The company provided me ...

Might any Justices be intrigued by notion that Eighth Amendment originalism makes the Boston Marathon bomber's death sentence suspect?

I have always been intrigued by writings by Michael J.Z. Mannheimer making originalist claims about the Eighth Amendment as a unique and distinctive limit on federal punishments.  As he explains in "Cruel and Unusual Federal Punishments," the framers and ratifiers of the Eighth Amendment were particularly concerned about an oppressive federal government imposing  excessive punishments, and so they expected that "state law should be the benchmark for determining whether a federal punishment is 'c...
