Thursday round-up

Adam Liptak reports for The New York Times that although “[a]bortion rights are at risk at the Supreme Court, … the short-term threat may not come from extreme laws like the one passed by Alabama lawmakers” this week: “The court led by Chief Justice John G. Roberts Jr. is more likely to chip away at the constitutional right to abortion established in 1973 in Roe v. Wade than to overturn it outright,” and “[i]t will have plenty of opportunities to do so.” Joan Biskupic writes at CNN that “in his ...

Retired Justice Stevens Thinks Trump Doesn’t Understand Role Of Judiciary

Retired Supreme Court Justice John Paul Stevens didn’t mince his words while discussing President Trump’s shortcomings when it comes to the judicial system in the U.S. Suggesting he hopes Trump doesn’t cause “too much damage,” Stevens said he thinks the President doesn’t fully understand the role of the judiciary in the U.S. To Trump, everything is political, Stevens said. “ Well, I think he often speaks  about them as Obama judges and  other kind of judges, but I  think that John Roberts ...

Monday round-up

Amy Howe reports for this blog, in a post first published at Howe on the Court, that on Friday, “Republican legislators from Ohio and Michigan … asked the Supreme Court to put lower-court rulings that found partisan gerrymandering in those states on hold while they appeal”; the legislators argue that the Supreme Court may decide this term in partisan-gerrymandering cases from North Carolina and Maryland “that partisan gerrymandering claims do not belong in court at all.” At Modern Democracy, Mic...

Stevens takes blame for Celtics' failures but blame runs deep

Celtics coach Brad Stevens pinned the failures of the 2018-19 season on himself, suggesting that it's ultimately a coach's responsibility to get the most out of his talent. Moments after one of the most disappointing seasons in Celtics history ended with a whimper - the Milwaukee Bucks dispatching Boston with a lopsided Game 5 victory in an Eastern Conference semifinal series - Stevens fell on the sword after the C's came up woefully short of lofty expectations. The Celtics were w...

Can a robot therapy dog help patients cope with anxiety and stress?

Jennie is a prototype therapy dog designed to help patients who are not able to take care of a real dog, such as people with Parkinson’s or dementia. Jennie the robo-dog is very much like a real Golden Retriever. She barks, wags her tail and has soft, cuddly fur. Covered with sensors, she responds to being petted, creating a connection to people. She’s predictably calm while she is being petted and is never boisterous or rambunctious as real dogs sometimes are. Tom Stevens’ company, Tombot, cre...

RMD Report: Diving Deeper into Medicare Advantage’s Potential for Aging in Place

Aging in place remains a major priority for many seniors who take out a reverse mortgage, using the proceeds from their loan to help make the goal of staying in their house more possible. With newly-proposed changes to the Medicare Advantage program having the potential to allow more seniors to age in place by funding some home modification programs for seniors, a new possibility for more of the elder population to remain in their homes is picking up steam. Academic professionals see the adve...

Ask the authors: “Plain words, easily understood”

The following is a series of questions prompted by the publication of Lee C. Bollinger and Geoffrey R. Stone’s “The Free Speech Century” (Oxford University Press, 2019). As Justice Oliver Wendell Holmes famously suggested in 1919 in Schenck v. United States, the Supreme Court’s first attempt to interpret the First Amendment’s free speech clause, the “most stringent protection of free speech would not protect a man in falsely shouting fire in a theatre and causing a panic.” But what does free s...

Celtics Blow Out Bucks in Game 1 on Road

Coming into this series, the Celtics were my pick to beat the Bucks. My thinking was that the Celtics would win the series in maybe 6 games. Brad Stevens is one of the better coaches in the league and he showed it in Game 1. Boston didn’t allow Giannis to have space to create his offense like the Pistons did. Coming into the game, I thought the Celtics would put Jayson Tatum or Jaylen Brown on Giannis. Instead, Coach Stevens put Al Horford on Giannis and it paid off. Horford frustrated Antetok...
