Another Language Quiz!

David Shariatmadari at the Guardian has one of those silly but enjoyable quizzes I can’t resist: Know your Hrvatski from your Old Norse? The first couple questions are relatively easy, but don’t get cocky — the only way you can get 100% is with the help of luck, since some require you to guess what year a word was first recorded. That said, I should have done better than 15/20; I tried to second-guess the quiz and got a little too tricksy. Don’t do what I did; if it seems right, it probably i...

9th Circuit ends California ban on high-capacity ammunition magazines

By DON THOMPSON | Associated Press SACRAMENTO — A three-judge panel of the 9th U.S. Circuit Court of Appeals on Friday threw out California’s ban on high-capacity ammunition magazines, saying the law violates the U.S. Constitution’s protection of the right to bear firearms. “Even well-intentioned laws must pass constitutional muster,” appellate Judge Kenneth Lee wrote for the panel’s majority. California’s ban on magazines holding more than 10 bullets “strikes at the core of the Second Amendment...

“Follow Your Passion” is Reductionist Drivel. Here’s a System that Actually Works.

Here’s something that confuses me. One of the most important factors in a satisfying life is developing a career you enjoy. And yet, our national conversation on this complicated issue is laughably simple. We are, it seems, forced to bow down at the altar of an annoying little phrase: “Follow your passion.” This slogan presents an absurdly reductionist explanation for how people end up loving what they do for a living: But even though this advice is simplistic, I can tell you from experience th...

Noodling

If someone offers you “feedback,” your Spidey sense might start to tingle. Feedback isn’t often part of a warm and fuzzy feeling. “Advice” is better. If you ask someone else for advice, you’re engaging them in your journey. But, as Peter Shepherd points out, “noodling” is the best of all. When we start noodling over an idea, we can be sure that no one is going to get injured.

Breaking: In Historic Vote, Utah Supreme Court Approves Sweeping Changes in Legal Services Regulation

In a historic vote that could set a blueprint for the rest of the country, the Utah Supreme Court has approved the most sweeping changes in a generation to the regulation of law practice and the delivery of legal services. Spurred by a widening gap in access to justice, made even worse by the coronavirus crisis, the court’s five justices voted unanimously to approve a comprehensive package of changes they proposed in April and put out for public comment.

Missing Text.

Anatoly Vorobey sometimes says of his more recondite posts “вряд ли кому-то будет интересно” [unlikely to be of interest to anyone], and the same is probably true of this, but I have found a tear in the fabric of spacetime and I cannot be silent. Back in my college days, Natalya Baranskaya’s 1969 story «Неделя как неделя» (A Week Like Any Other, also translated as The Alarm Clock in the Cupboard) was famous not only among students of Russian like me but internationally, as a look into the daily...

There’s No Turning Back, Says Legal Admins’ White Paper, Change Is A Must

Two weeks ago, I wrote here about a poll of legal administrators on the impact of COVID-19 on law firms, summarizing the findings with the words of novelist Thomas Wolfe, “You can’t go home again.” I noted then that those who conducted the poll planned to publish a white paper providing more details from the poll and analysis of the results. That white paper is now available, and its top-line takeaway remains that, for law firms, there is no turning back. “[W]orking from home is here to stay and...

In Defense of The Lawn

Last week, Susan Harris emailed me regarding my recent article “In Defense of The Lawn” in the July/August issue of The American Gardener magazine. “Can we use it for the Rant?” she said, “Where it belongs?”  Susan is right – it is a rant of sorts, though I like to think of it as a well-reasoned argument.  In any case, it’s a discussion I think we should all have; and when I contacted David Ellis, editor of The American Gardener, he kindly permitted us to run an excerpt here to start that discu...

The Sunday circular

The “freestanding insert” was a multi-billion dollar business. Printed in bulk, then handed over to newspapers that would insert it into their Sunday paper, it was filled with coupons. In fact, the coupons were the entire point. And the coupons worked. They worked for two reasons: It gave big companies a chance to treat different people differently. If a consumer cared about saving money more than time or hassle, they could clip the coupons, bring them to the store and pay a different price tha...
