Argument analysis: Spinning heads and swimming constitutional rights in debates over an accrual rule

McDonough v. Smith, argued Wednesday, saw justices and attorneys repeating metaphors about heads spinning and constitutional rights swimming. The justices seemed inclined to rule for the petitioner (supported by the United States) that his claim was timely and that the limitations period on a civil action should not begin until favorable termination of criminal proceedings. But the likely scope of the ruling remains uncertain. Respondent Youel Smith prosecuted petitioner Edward McDonough, a form...

Too much...?

This “hôtel particulier”, a former private mansion house – now a school – is very rich on decorations, maybe on the limit of “too much”? Well, it has not always looked like this, the building has been transformed during the centuries. The original building dates from the 16th century and has changed owners – and shape and decorations… - a number of times. It is today known as “Hôtel Fieubet” , but has also been known as “Hôtel Combourg”, “Hôtel Lavalette”… Below we can see s...

Who are the next billion users and what do they want?

Entrepreneurs and tech executives are widening their gazes outside of developed nations for their next source of growth. Ubiquitous cheap phones and increasingly affordable phone plans such as Jio in India are helping another billion users join the internet. What do those users want though, and how are they the same and different than existing internet users? That’s the subject of a critical book by Payal Arora, entitled The Next Billion Users: Digital Life Beyond the West. The compact thesis en...

Argument analysis: Peace cross appears safe, if not stable

For nearly a century, a 40-foot-tall stone and concrete cross has stood on a traffic median in the Washington, D.C., suburbs, just a few miles from the Supreme Court. But seven years ago, a group of local residents filed a lawsuit seeking to have the cross removed. They argue that the presence of the cross on public land violates the Constitution, which bars the government from establishing an official religion and favoring one religion over another. The state of Maryland, which owns and maintai...

What Happens When a President Declares a National Emergency?

Today in the upside down, President Trump declared a national emergency in an effort to fund the U.S.-Mexico border. In doing so, he’ll effectively bypass Congress and gain access to billions of dollars, among other capacities, which include the ability to declare curfews and even limit our actual movements (yep).…Read more...

Rangers Prospect Corner: Barron, Hughes & Reunanen

February is crunch time in the world of hockey, with the playoffs looming and teams trying to shake that end-of-the-season fatigue. Luckily for UMass Lowell and their hot start to 2019, goaltender Tyler Wall has shown no signs of weariness. Wall turned aside all 28 shots he faced against Boston College on Feb. 8 for his fourth shutout of the season. It was the second time the New York Rangers’ 2016 sixth-round pick (174th overall) faced the Eagles in a two-week span, after he only let in one tal...

Republican Arizona lawmaker revives doomed "porn tax" to fund Trump's doomed border-wall

Anti-porn troll Chris Sevier (previously) has built his career by convincing grandstanding Republican state lawmakers to introduce doomed, unconstitutional porn-tax laws that would require in-state ISPs to implement default-on censorship of "adult sites" (or, more specifically, "sites appearing an an arbitrary, unaccountable secret blacklist of allegedly adult material") and then charge $20/subscriber to turn off the filters. This is unconstitutional and stupid, which makes it perfect for p...

Bradley Beal does not think the Wizards are better without John Wall: 'That's absolutely nonsense'

What's funny is that a lot of folks had written the Wizards off well before Wall went down for the year, and the injury had a lot of us wondering if they were better off with Beal trying to carry the team back into contention by himself. We have spent years studying the chemistry between Wall and Beal, a combustible pairing that they themselves have acknowledged, and the team's disastrous 13-22 start had us testing the trade machine to see how Washington could deal its way out of a fai...

Border Patrol union deletes 2012 anti-border wall web page that argued walls waste taxpayer money

A union that represents agents for the U.S. Border Patrol deleted a 2012 page from their website that said building walls or fences along the U.S./Mexico border to stop desperate migrants would be “wasting taxpayer money.” VICE's Motherboard reports that the deleted web page was originally posted in 2012. It carried an argument against walls like the one Trump's pushing today, and said border barriers don’t tackle migration's root causes, and may encourage more migrants to enter the U.S. thro...

Art in Public Spaces: A Chronicle of Art Installations in Berlin

Berlin has an international reputation for being a paradise for artists of any kind. During the last 30 years, our beloved city has seen an incredible big amount of large scale art installations, constructed not only in exhibition spaces, but also in public spaces, like squares or streets. We are crazy about artworks, especially if they are emotionally touching, impressive, contemplative, and why not, also appealing to our eyes. We prepared a list of the most remarkable and unforgettable art ins...

Trump, the Democrats, the Shutdown and the Wall

There are issues that divide Republicans and Democrats that sometimes benefit the GOP and at another time the Democrats.  Universal healthcare and abortion are issues like this. And so might be the issue of the border wall.  If so, the Democrats should be very careful. What follows is a comment on politics, not policy. Here’s how salience works.  In 1992, the Democrats won elections on a promise of national health insurance. In 1994, the Republicans won partly by running against the actual De...

Trump: I’m Not Flip-Flopping!!! 100 Percent Concrete Wall! Mostly.

WASHINGTON (AP) — Despite public equivocations by three confidants, President Donald Trump is insisting he wants to build a wall along the U.S.-Mexico border. “An all concrete Wall was NEVER ABANDONED,” tweeted Trump, whose demand for congressional funding to construct one has caused a budgetary standoff. “Some areas will be all concrete but the experts at Border Patrol prefer a Wall that is see through (thereby making it possible to see what is happening on both sides).” Trump’s comments on M...

President Donald Trump, Republicans, and administration officials have responded to a second December death of a migrant child in US custody. In an interview, outgoing White House chief of staff John Kelly said Trump's "Wall" won't actually be a wall.

Trump: Gov’t Won’t Reopen Until Dems Agree To Wall Or ‘Whatever They Call It’

WASHINGTON (AP) — President Donald Trump said Tuesday that parts of the federal government will stay closed until Democrats agree to put up more walls along the U.S.-Mexico border to deter criminal elements. He said he’s open to calling the wall something else as long as he ends up with an actual wall. In a Christmas Day appearance in the Oval Office, Trump issued a lengthy defense of his desire for a wall, saying it’s the only way to stop drugs and human traffickers from entering the country....
