ROSS on a Break, as Other Friends Marry

The news of the demise of ROSS Intelligence appears to be a disappointing blow for some Canadian and US lawyers; beyond their jurisdictions, it has little relevance. As litigation proceeds, in the form of an antitrust claim against Thomson Reuters, alleging research monopoly, the story may not be over, and it may be for the courts to evaluate the relative merits in that particular case; others are more competent than I am to comment on both the specific facts and legalities of it. What I read, h...

Town Country: The Crown Perfumery Co Review

The British company The Crown Perfumery Co was founded in 1872 in London by William S. Thomson, an American manufacturer of the famous Thomson’s Glove Fitting corsets. Now that corsets are a long time in our past, it's difficult for us to understand how they can be associated with perfumery. To people at the end of the 19th century, the connection probably seemed logical - clients fainted duri...

‘Coming Home in the Dark’ Review: An Unbearably Tense Thriller That Sticks With You [Sundance 2021]

A one and a half-hour gut-punch, Coming Home in the Dark is bleak, tense, and often unshakable. It sticks with you; haunts you. Leaves you feeling restless. Anxiety-inducing and frequently unpleasant, it travels down dark roads, and while you can likely guess the destination, getting there is no less unnerving. In James Ashcroft‘s film, a family trip to the picturesque, and remote, New Zealand coastline turns deadly and spirals out of control into one very long night. You won’t exactly enjoy th...

Pasadena’s City Council debates the fate of the ‘Rose Bowl’ name on Jan. 1

Faced with the departure of its beloved Rose Bowl game on Jan. 1, the Pasadena City Council met for hours Tuesday night, Dec. 22, weighing whether the name itself will travel on Jan. 1 to Texas. The highly unusual action came during a special closed-session meeting in which the city’s elected officials were left with the decision of whether to prohibit the name from being used or give it up to Arlington, Texas — perhaps even one-time only — where the game will be played.

Judith Jarvis Thomson, RIP.

To quote the start of Justin Weinberg’s Daily Nous obit, “Judith Jarvis Thomson, professor emerita of philosophy at the Massachusetts Institute of Technology and one of the most influential moral philosophers of the past 50 years, has died.” I don’t normally commemorate philosophers at LH (though I’ve actually read or skimmed a couple of her articles), but there were some things in Claudia Mills‘ introduction of Thomson at the Rocky Mountain Ethics Congress in 2009 (quoted at the link) that res...

City of Philadelphia, an important case concerning child welfare in Philadelphia.

'People were sick to their stomachs with his fake sincerity': Frustrated Amazon sellers slam Bezos for claiming his retail platform empowers small businesses

Amazon CEO Jeff Bezos joined the leaders of Apple, Facebook, and Google on July 29 to testify before Congress on antitrust issues.  For Bezos, how Amazon competes with its third-party selling business comprised quite a bit of the questioning.  Bezos maintained that Amazon elevates small business owners like its third-party sellers. But some Amazon sellers don't agree.  Amazon did not respond to a request for comment for this story.  Visit Business Insider's homepage for more stories. When Ama...

New Zealand eliminating coronavirus

New Zealand, that country that just seems to be good at everything, looks like it’s won the battle against coronavirus too. Last week, Prime Minister Jacinda Ardern cautiously announced the country had effectively “eliminated” COVID-19, with only one new case and four probable cases reported. The virus isn’t completely stamped out, but it is at a point where the country can easily identify and isolate any new cases, and quash any potential outbreak. So it might be tempting, now, to look to ...
