How to find your tribe as a newbie agent

What do we mean by “your tribe”? Your tribe is your new friend group, those agents around you who not only support you, but also mentor you and help you grow. Think season one of Grey’s Anatomy, and you’ll get the idea. Here are four ways to quickly find your tribe.

'Go Ahead in the Rain' Artfully Melds the Many Parts of a Tribe Called Quest's Backstory

None As I write this review, I'm listening to "Award Tour" and nodding my head like I'm front row for A Tribe Called Quest's 1993 Arsenio Hall performance under lavender stage lights. I discovered Tribe in a different world than Hanif Abdurraqib: not in Columbus, Ohio, but Akron; not on cassette tape, but a Greatest Hits CD stolen from the public library; not as a black teenager realizing that Tribe's jazz-imbued hip-hop is acceptable to play at home, but as a white 15-year-old suddenly on a mi...

Hanif Abdurraqib's Playlist for His Book "Go Ahead in the Rain: Notes to A Tribe Called Quest"

In the Book Notes series, authors create and discuss a music playlist that relates in some way to their recently published book. Previous contributors include Jesmyn Ward, Lauren Groff, Bret Easton Ellis, Celeste Ng, T.C. Boyle, Dana Spiotta, Amy Bloom, Aimee Bender, Heidi Julavits, Hari Kunzru, and many others. Hanif Abdurraqib consistently impresses me with his poetry, essays, and criticism. His new book, a href="

Dizzy Heights #45: The Alliteration Show

No talkie bits this week. First day of school for the kids, birthday celebrations, picking the boy up at camp, blah blah blah. This idea is definitely a one-shot thing, at least in its current form. I went after song titles that were two words, each starting with the same letter. And I went A to Z, almost literally (with apologies to the letters Q and X). Of course, I broke my own rules twice, when I used a song with an ampersand (hey, it was the letter U, I got desperate), and in one instance,...

Mohawk Tribe v. Mylan Highlights USPTO Constraints

One week ago, the Federal Circuit Court of Appeals issued its decision in Saint Regis Mohawk Tribe v. Mylan Pharmaceuticals, Inc., 18-1638 (Fed. Cir. July 20, 2018)–by all accounts, one of this decade’s most important decisions concerning the America Invents Act and the patent system. The primary issue in the case was whether the Saint Regis Mohawk Tribe (or any tribe, for that matter) is immune from the USPTO’s inter partes review (“IPR”) proceeding, which can result in cancellation of a patent...

Love, transactionality, and the “5 people” you hang with

We hear this from motivators: “You are the average of the 5 people that you surround yourself with.” Cue the racing mental inventory of your friendships: are your homies “successful” enough? Is their mojo rubbing off on you? Are you going to let go of friends who haven’t gotten rich yet? Or sober? Who aren’t fuckin’ crushin’ it? There’s a shadow to the “5 people rule”. It can make us transactional … strands of usery can find their way into the connection, tinges of envious cloying. And...

Guest Editorial: Yes, Native Americans and Patents Do Go Together

Guest post by Michael Gulliford.  Mr. Gulliford is an advisor to the Saint Regis Mohawk Tribe and the Founder of Soryn IP Group, a patent advisory and finance firm headquartered in New York City. Native Americans and patents don’t make headlines. That changed when the Saint Regis Mohawk Tribe, located in upstate New York, conceived a lucrative transaction that saw Allergan transfer patents covering the dry eye drug Restasis® to the Tribe.

Tribe's "momentary lapse" not so momentary.

Professor Tribe, you explain your use of violent rhetoric on TV today -- referring to impeachment as a "bullet" which requires that one "shoot to kill" -- as a momentary lapse: "a terrible word choice." You say it's "inexcusable." Why, then, is this also on p. 94 of your book?— BP (@BadgerPundit) May 22, 2018 [Author: [email protected] (Ann Althouse)]

Tribe combines arcade games with group video chat

Sick of chatting but want to stay connected? Tribe‘s app lets you play clones of Space Invaders, Flappy Bird, Fruit Ninja, Name That Tune and more while video chatting with up to seven friends or strangers. Originally a video messaging app, Tribe failed to gain traction in the face of Snapchat and Facebook Messenger. But thanks to a $3 million funding round led by Kleiner Perkins in June, Tribe had the runway to pivot into video chat gaming that could prove popular, even if not in its app. “A...

By Kevin E. Noonan -- In an extensive, 42-page per curiam opinion, the Patent Trial and Appeal Board (PTAB) surprised no one last Friday by denying the St. Regis Mohawk Tribe's motion to terminate several inter partes review proceedings based on the Tribe's assertion of tribal sovereign immunity.
