  • California bar exam’s passing score should be lowered, critics say

    San Francisco Chronicle ^ | March 14, 2017 | Dominic Fracassa
    The State Bar of California has agreed to launch a comprehensive assessment of whether the minimum score needed to pass its bar examination should be lowered to allow more prospective attorneys to pass. In recent weeks, a growing chorus of voices — from state legislators to law school deans to court officials — have registered urgent concerns that the lowest score needed to pass the exam, commonly referred to as the “cut score,” is too high, flunking would-be attorneys who would qualify to practice law nearly everywhere else in the country. That sense of urgency has increased since November, after...

    As police struggled to get Wiley inside a cruiser, she lunged at the face of Officer Jessica Rondinelli, a rookie cop who has been on the job barely a month. Wiley, cops charge, “grabbed a hold of Officer Rondinelli’s right ear in her teeth and refused to let go.” Rondinelli yelled, "She has my ear!" Wiley released her bite when Rondinelli, 27, gouged her in the eye. “She bit my ear off,” Rondinelli then told fellow officers. The cop’s right ear was bleeding and had a “jagged chunk missing from the top of it,” according to the report.

    Federal agents over the weekend arrested a Pinellas Park man described as having extremist jihadist beliefs who wanted to blow up a target in Tampa and create "terror" in victims' hearts. "I want to do something terrifying," he said, according to a federal complaint, "like one day, one night, something's going to happen. Then six hours later, something else." Sami Osmakac, 25, was taken into custody after an FBI sting operation in which he tried to buy explosives, at least 10 grenades, Uzis and an AK-47, authorities said. Osmakac's intended target shifted over the course of the investigation, which spanned...

    I’m jealous. Hickok45 has a circa 1919 full-auto Browning BAR that has been upgraded to World War II standards. It remains one of my two favorite machine guns of all time (the other is the late 1960s-early 1970s Smith & Wesson M76 9mm submachine gun).

    For these two starry-eyed lovers, there was nothing that could interfere with their passionate lip-lock on Monday night -- even if that something was an armed robbery. As captured by surveillance cameras, the couple remained unfazed as they sit at the bar, wrapped in each others embrace, while three robbers approach the register.

    Earlier today I visited one of my favorite bars (for a ginger ale). I live in a rust-belt state, a state that is considered Democrat, but one that went for Ronald Reagan back in the day. The talk turned to politics. The folks present were all blue-color types. And they love Trump! There is also some sympathy for Sanders. They see him as a well-meaning dreamer. But there is zero support for Hillary, and zero support for Cruz. Zero. Nada. None.

    The Browning Automatic Rifle, officially designated the M1918, was a sweet light machine gun designed by no less a firearms genius than John Moses Browning in the tail end of World War I. Capable of spitting out .30-06 rounds at 500-600 rounds per minute, the BAR could empty a 20-round detachable box magazine in just two seconds when wide open.

    War is Boring ^ | September 10, 2015 | Paul Richard Huard
    World War I is often called “the machine gun war” because of the devastating use of automatic weapons such as the Maxim gun. It’s also when some of the drastic developments in machine gun technology occurred. Artillery fire actually killed more men than machine guns, but statistics simply don’t convey the horror of European armies on the Western Front facing automatic fire. For example, during just one day in 1916 at the Battle of the Somme the British lost 21,000 men – many of them killed by Spandau machine guns, the German version of the Maxim.

    Greg and Jen Espinoza fly to Hawaii as often as they can. Their idea of the perfect vacation is sipping mai tais on a tropical island. But when they can’t get away they do the next best thing — they sail off to Pink Pearl’s Lagoon, right in their own backyard. Pearl’s is their personal tiki bar, a hangout for friends, family and neighbors, just beyond their sliding glass doors. Greg built it himself out of bamboo he picked up cheap years ago at the old Yardbirds’ going-out-of-business sale. Over the years they’ve added personal touches, like a Bourbon Street...

    New Zealand's First Booze-Free Bar Flops The first alcohol-free bar in New Zealand has been forced to permanently close after just five weeks of trading after “no one showed up”. Situated in Auckland, Tap Bar – which stands for The After Party – charged NZ$15 for entry and non-alcoholic drinks started from NZ$5. The venue opened at midnight in the hope it would be a hot spot for customers rolling out of local nightclubs at 4am, but those revellers who did frequent the bar drank only water. “We gave it a shot and Auckland drinking culture just didn’t tie in...

    One thing that would be cool, if they could fix it, is to allow you to make the title bar real distinct. Win7, at least in my enterprise installation, doesn't let you. In Win 3.1, I could make a red-to-yellow gradient on the active window title bar, where it says the application program name or the file title. Then you could easily see which is the active window.

    Rejoice, future California lawyers! The CA State Bar Board of Trustees just voted to scale back the state’s onerous three-day exam, said by some to be the hardest bar exam in the country, to a more comfortable two-day affair. ... California was weighing a proposal to alter the test format to include one day of essays (5 one-hour essays and a 90-minute performance test) and one day of the MBE, with both days weighed equally. As noted in that post, this scales back the performance test from its previous 3-hour length ... Meanwhile, every California lawyer should start working on...

This clip is interesting (assuming the interactions are genuine, which I think they are) but not for the reason intended. You’re supposed to conclude, I guess, that Americans are abject morons in assessing the value of precious metals and/or that Americans are big fat fatties in preferring a quick hit of chocolate to something inedible that’s worth much more. I don’t think it proves either. Many people are morons,...

    Police said a bar in Maple Grove, Minn. was caught selling Spotted Cow, a beer that's only legal in Wisconsin. A Minnesota bar was busted for illegally pouring a Wisconsin exclusive. The owners of Maple Grove’s Maple Tavern could face felony resale charges for selling pints of Spotted Cow, a farmhouse beer brewed in Wisconsin and distributed only in-state, police said. The Minneapolis-area bartenders drove across the border and loaded up on kegs of the coveted New Glarus Brewing Co. ale before they were busted during a sting last week, KMSP reported. Undercover officers went to the Maple Tavern on...

    The Green Mill, in Chicago’s uptown neighborhood, is more than just a great jazz bar. It also has a lot of history. Back in the 1920’s, the bar was the favorite hangout of none other than legendary gangster Al Capone. Capone’s buddy “Machine Gun” Jack McGurn owned the place, and Capone even had a favorite booth where I got to sit and drink. Capone’s favorite booth has good views of all entrances and exits — perfect for a gangster — but Capone himself didn’t always go out the front door. Behind the bar is a trap door down to the...

Hartford lawyer and former Democratic state Chairman John Droney asked in an email typical of hundreds of others inspired by a debate that has continued now for...
