Sad start to what should become happier compassionate release tales after passage of FIRST STEP Act

Though the (clumsy) increase in good-time credits has received considerable attention since the passage of the FIRST STEP Act (see prior posts here and here and here and here), I find the change to the administration of so-called compassionate release rules to be among the most fascinating elements of the new legislation.  If legislative enactments can have "sleeper provisions," I would call the compassionate release changes the sleeper provisions of FIRST STEP.  , titled "Compassionate Release...

I remember years ago when interest in lifestyle design was surging. Many people were escaping their 9-5 jobs, becoming digital nomads, traveling extensively, exploring open relationships, embracing wild adventures, and stretching the limits of what they could do with their lifestyles. Some people thrived in those explorations while others quickly burned out. Many who went this route seemed to get a tremendous amount of value from it initially, but soon they began feeling that something was mi...

Steve Schmidt Throws A Tantrum When Asked About Advising Howard Schultz

GOP operative and never-Trumper Steve Schmidt stormed out of the podcast he helped found when asked about his role advising former Starbucks CEO Howard Schultz on a possible presidential bid. According to a Sunday Daily Beast report, Schmidt was unhappy about the premise of the episode from the beginning and cursed for several minutes about having to defend himself. Even after he calmed down enough to do the interview, it didn’t take long for him to explode again while discussing Sen....

How We Worshipped One Sunday in February

Every few weeks I like to share an example of one of our worship services from Grace Fellowship Church. I do so hoping they serve as a model of how one church attempts to worship the Lord in a distinctly biblical way. This service’s cast of characters included Paul as our service leader and preacher, Brian as our lead worshipper, and Dwight as the elder who read the Scripture text and prayed. Steve, our associate pastor, closed out the service with a commission. Our band consis...

Clippers fans hear team’s brass break down trades, paint picture of success ahead

LOS ANGELES — Lawrence Frank asked the fans filling the Belasco Theater to imagine themselves as an elite free agent on the receiving end of a pitch from the Clippers this summer. “We got the best city in the NBA, right?” asked Frank, the team’s president of basketball operations. “The thing we offer, in this city, is you get all the benefits without the drama.” The group of approximately 750 fans on hand cheered in approval of that distinction, obviously made with L.A.’s other NBA team – and th...

The Long Darkness - A Parallel Story to The Danged Rocks

Chapter 1 “Oh, for the love of …..” Steve Miller exclaimed as the television and lights shut off. The house was instantly pitch black inside. The blinds had been drawn tight in an attempt to dissuade any trick-or-treaters from intruding on Steve’s evening, so no ambient light was visible. Better to be thought a child molester than keep going to the door all night. Too bad it didn’t stop all of the little snots. It was dark enough Steve couldn’t even see shadows as his eyes worked to adjust...

Is Racism the Reason We’ve Had NO Minority Interviews?

I made the assertion in a previous post, based on solid information that has been given to me, that there have been no minority interviews in the hiring processes at our entities. I asked, even begged for information to correct that. If one of the search teams has interviewed a minority, I would love to be corrected and will publicly and loudly publish that correction. To this point, I have received no such corrections. So, assuming that there have been minority applicants (there have – qualifie...

Apple's '1984' Super Bowl commercial was the 'worst ever tested' but now it's iconic. Here's how it almost never aired (AAPL)

In 1984, Apple aired what may be the most famous Super Bowl ad of all time. It's the topic of the latest episode of Business Insider's podcast "Household Name." Apple's 1984 ad has been called the best TV commercial ever. But before it aired, Apple's ad agency commissioned some focus group testing for the spot — and the public hated it. So the test results never went to Apple and the ad ultimately aired during the Super Bowl. Apple's 1984 ad ran 35 years ago, during the 1984 Super Bowl, but i...

Apple cofounder Steve Wozniak was so excited about the iconic '1984' commercial, he offered to pay $400,000 out of pocket to run it during the Super Bowl (AAPL)

Apple cofounder Steve Wozniak recently spoke with Business Insider about the company's famous "1984" commercial. Wozniak said he liked the commercial so much when he first saw it that he offered to personally pay half of what it would cost for the ad to air during the Super Bowl — $400,000. Wozniak didn't end up having to pay for the ad, which he says is "better than any science fiction trailer." The ad, which introduced the world to Apple's Macintosh personal computer, went on to be widely c...

Your Best Work

Do you have a job or career path that supports you in doing the best work of your life? If I were to ask this of various people, some would laugh at the ridiculousness of this question because it’s a standard they’ve never come close to experiencing, so a jaded reply is all they can muster. If I ask certain friends who are very fulfilled by their work, their answers would be something like, “Of course… why would I tolerate any less?” Consider that if you’re not aligned with this standard o...

Why You Should Amend Your LLC Operating Agreement Now

By Stanley Cygelman and Steven Ayr The Bipartisan Budget Act of 2015 (“BBA”) created a new regime for auditing partnerships (which includes almost all LLCs) and collecting and assessing tax from such entities, for tax years beginning on and after January 1, 2018. As a result, all operating agreements for LLCs formed after December 31, 2017 are being drafted to address the new BBA procedures. If you are a member or manager of an LLC that was formed prior to January 1, 2018, the BBA procedures wil...

Fat tires and float

Urbana is based in Montreal, Quebec, and Montreal this time of year means snow.I want to test this out, but we don't exactly have an abundance of snow in S...

Patriots pool report: Belichick not a fan of Super Bowl pace

For a few minutes Saturday morning, Bill Belichick's top concern was opening a bag of macadamia nuts for his 2-year-old granddaughter, Blakely. The Patriots coach has spent the past two weeks preparing for Super Bowl LIII, which included stashing some snack packs in his pants pocket in case of a hungry toddler. Blakely, the daughter of Belichick's son, Steve, was born in October 2016, so this will be her third Super Bowl before she turns 3.
