Free case law


Adjuster:  You want THAT much to settle?
Me:  You seem a little slow, is there someone else I can talk to?


Advice to young lawyers just starting out:  Marry a person with a job.

New poll: Nearly half the college graduates regret going to college because the debt load is so onerous.  We've let these young people down.  Things need to change.   

Book signing. I look forward to seeing each of you at the book signing ceremony.  Be sure and bring a book you think I've ghost written.

First insect-size robot that can fly, swim

First insect-size robot that can fly, swim
Washington: For the first time, scientists have designed an insect-like robot smaller than a paperclip that can both fly and swim - paving the way for future dual aerial aquatic robotic vehicles.
The biggest challenge is conflicting design requirements: aerial vehicles require large airfoils like wings or sails to generate lift while underwater vehicles need to minimise surface area to reduce drag.
To solve this engineers at the Harvard University's John A Paulson School of Engineering and Applied Science (SEAS) took a clue from puffins.
The birds with flamboyant beaks are one of nature's most adept hybrid vehicles, employing similar flapping motions to propel themselves through air as through water.
"Through various theoretical, computational and experimental studies, we found that the mechanics of flapping propulsion are actually very similar in air and in water," said Kevin Chen, a graduate student at the Harvard Microrobotics Lab at SEAS.
The RoboBee, designed in postdoctoral fellow Robert J Wood's lab, is a microrobot, smaller than a paperclip, that flies and hovers like an insect, flapping its tiny, nearly invisible wings 120 times per second.
In order to make the transition from air to water, the team first had to solve the problem of surface tension.

Is Congress ready to bar prosecutors from reading mail between federal prisoners and their attorneys? Two lawmakers — a Republican from Georgia and a Democrat from New York — will introduce legislation on Capitol Hill in the next few days to end a practice that infuriates defense attorneys and has split the federal judiciary. One issue sure to be raised by both sides: the high costs of forcing defense counsel to visit their clients in person. THE NEW YORK TIMES
