Lawsplainer: Michael Cohen's Attempt To Delay The Stormy Daniels Litigation
"Here, Essential Consultants (supported by Trump) moved the case from California state court to United States District Court for the Central District of California, because Clifford is from Texas, Trump lives in DC, and Essential Consultants is a Delaware company. The notice of removal is here."
"Was that a good idea?"
"No it was not. Conventional wisdom is that federal courts are better for the defense and more likely to enforce arbitration agreements. However, federal judges move faster and abide by deadlines and rules more closely, and are substantially less tolerant of bullshit than state judges. If substantial portions of your defense are premised on bullshit and delay, don't remove to federal court."

He is the real-life embodiment of Toronto's old algorithmically perfect Ghost Defenders. He won't stunt away from a good shooter in the corner to disrupt a worse one stationed above the break, but he will stunt away from a so-so shooter on the wing toward a better one in the corner. Dude is a walking calculator. He knows time, score, personnel and playbook as well any perimeter defender in the league."

There's a simple reason companies are becoming more publicly left-wing on social issues
"Think about who companies most want to advertise to: people who have a lot of disposable income and aren't too old. This advertiser preference is why television ratings are reported in terms of adults 25 to 54 (or sometimes even 18 to 49) and it's why networks like Bravo tout their unusually upscale viewer base to prospective advertisers. Appealing to senior citizens is a good way to win an election, but it's not a good way to sell most consumer products and services."

He is self-aware enough to know what’s funny about himself—he’s successfully involved with the Apatow, Ferrell/McKay, Poehler, and Wain/Showalter cliques—while also projecting the guilelessness that many male screenwriters seem to find appealing in fictional women: a perceived lack of awareness about what a stone cold fox he is."

Why the F.B.I. Raid Is Perilous for Michael Cohen — and Trump
"It’s significant that Mr. Mueller sent this matter to the federal attorney’s office in New York for it to pursue. Mr. Mueller is empowered to investigate both alleged coordination between Russia and the Trump campaign and any matters 'that arose or may arise directly from the investigation'. Mr. Mueller’s referral of the Stormy Daniels matter to New York suggests he believes it is outside that scope of his investigation. Perhaps it arose from press coverage of Ms. Daniels’s incendiary claims and from the bumbling and inconsistent public responses of Mr. Cohen and President Trump. In other words, this could be an own goal by the president and Mr. Cohen."

Credit Card Signatures Are About to Become Extinct in the U.S.
"Investigators scrutinized signed credit slips to determine whether cardholders were present when transactions were made. Signatures were required on all purchases; merchants that failed to collect them generally had to absorb the losses if transactions were disputed. Retailers could also be held liable if they failed to notice that the signature on a receipt did not match the one on the back of the customer’s card. Then online shopping took off, forcing card issuers to come up with new ways to detect and adjudicate fraud. As their forensic systems improved, signatures became a relic."

What It Means That Trump Is "Only A Subject"
"There's a benefit to knowing you're a target — there's no ambiguity and you can focus on going to the mattresses. It's trickier if you're a subject. Clients — and some lawyers — will clamor to talk to the prosecutors to convince them that they shouldn't be a subject, that they should only be a witness. They see the 'subject' designation as an opportunity to talk their way out of it. But for more cautious federal defense attorneys, the 'subject' classification doesn't change the strategy very much. The client can still become a target at any time. Talking to the government may well provide the information they need to make that decision. Furthermore, talking to the government often generates its own new crimes, as we've seen again and again in Mueller's investigation as defendants have been charged (and in several cases pleaded guilty) to lying to the government. The situation is still one of intense danger, and no experienced defense attorney is relieved to hear their client is 'only a subject'."

Why Earth's History Appears So Miraculous
"What if, when we looked at our own planet’s past, we saw a similar pattern? After all, there are 100-mile impact craters on our planet’s surface from the past billion years, but no 600-mile craters. But of course, there couldn’t be scars this big. On worlds where such craters exist, there is no one around afterward to ponder them. In a strange way, truly gigantic craters don’t appear on the planet’s surface because we’re here to look for them. Just as the wounds of the returning planes could reflect only the merely survivable, so too for our entire planet’s history. It could be that we’ve been shielded from these existential threats by our very existence. 'Observer selection effects are really the kind of effects where the data you get is going to be dependent, in some sense, on survival, or that you as an observer exist,' Sandberg says. 'Now this gets really interesting and scary when we apply it to our own survival.'"

‘When I See Racial Disparities, I See Racism.’ Discussing Race, Gender and Mobility
"Why is racism the only explanation for this phenomenon? Perhaps something happens to black boys while they are growing up that makes them less capable of succeeding in the U.S. economy. For instance, maybe cultural forces cause black boys — but not black girls — to focus on activities that leave them with poorer time management skills than those that boys of other races are developing. So, why do the authors take the easy way out and blame amorphous racism instead of exploring more subtle explanations that do not make the situation seem hopeless?"
"Actually, the easy way out is to say there must be something wrong with these black boys. It is the easy way out that Americans have historically taken in trying to explain racial disparities in our society since the founding of the United States. Either there is something wrong with our policies, or there is something wrong with black boys (or black people). Either the United States is riddled with racist policies or inferior black boys. We have all sorts of evidence of racist policies. Where is the evidence that black boys as a group have 'poorer time management skills' than white boys as a group? Personal observations of individual behavior is not evidence of group behavior. Racist ideas of black inferiority is the easy way out."

3 lessons from the Jazz’s success after losing Gordon Hayward
"We expected the loss of Hayward to drag down Utah’s offense, but not its defense. The primary statistical reason the Jazz have not fallen off is that their defense remains elite. We should have expected this! The offense has in fact degraded somewhat — from No. 12 last season to No. 16 this year. That drop is relatively minor in the grand scheme of separating mediocre teams from good ones when the defense is this good. This isn’t to say we focus too much on the great offensive players when free agency arrives — they are more rare and individually impactful in most cases. In other words, it is easier and cheaper to find good defense. (Elite defense, like what Gobert and Draymond Green provide, is a different story. *That’s* expensive and rare, especially when combined with useful offensive skills.)"

"If you agree that the goal of The Process was not to win a championship, but to increase the probability of acquiring the kind of talent required to win a championship, than you also probably agree that The Process, at least as we knew it, is over. Joel Embiid is a generational talent. So is Ben Simmons. Regardless of what happens with Fultz, we’ve got the kind of foundation you can build something special on. We did what Hinkie set out to do.

‘The Trains Are Slower Because They Slowed the Trains Down’
"In August of 2014, after Betheil’s internship had ended, the draft report languished in the organization’s digital innards. But now, more than three years later, the report, which was obtained by the Village Voice along with other internal documents, provides a radically different explanation for the subway’s declining performance than the one that MTA leadership has given the public. The root cause of the subway system’s decay, it turns out, isn’t budget cuts or overcrowding — rather, the collapse of the subway system appears to have been primarily self-inflicted by the authority itself, in response to a single accident two decades ago that set the transit system on a path to disaster."

The Beer Twins (One Evil) Take Their Feud to Queens
"Because the twins claim they don’t communicate with each other, it’s impossible to know whether their brewery openings are coincidental, acts of one-upmanship or clever public-relations stunts. 'I think it’s nothing more than the fact that there are a lot of breweries coming up in New York,' said Jim Raras Jr., the executive vice president of Mikkeller NYC. 'We happen to be one of them, and they happen to be another one.' (Mikkel does not comment publicly about his brother.) Jeppe, however, called the turn of events 'weird', and questioned his brother’s motivations. 'He doesn’t even live here,' Jeppe said. 'He’s only been here five times.'"

Apple Is Secretly Developing Its Own Screens for the First Time
"Creating MicroLED screens is extraordinarily complex. Depending on screen size, they can contain millions of individual pixels. Each has three sub-pixels: red, green and blue LEDs. Each of these tiny LEDs must be individually created and calibrated. Each piece comes from what is known as a 'donor wafer' and then are mass-transferred to the MicroLED screen. Early in the process, Apple bought these wafers from third-party manufacturers like Epistar Corp. and Osram Licht AG but has since begun 'growing' its own LEDs to make in-house donor wafers. The growing process is done inside a clean room at the Santa Clara facility."

Donald Glover Can’t Save You
"'In 2006, when he was twenty-three and still living in an N.Y.U. dorm, he was hired to write for '30 Rock.' Tina Fey said, 'Donald didn’t pitch for Tracy, the way you’d expect. He pitched for Kenneth.' Tracy Jordan was the eccentric African-American star of a sketch-comedy show; Kenneth was the ingenuous white NBC page who, in a nod to Glover’s background, is from Stone Mountain, Georgia. Glover said, 'I did have more in common with Kenneth than with Tracy at that point—I was a wide-eyed kid, eager to please.' After three years, having learned how to punch up scripts and manage writers and actors, he quit. Six days later, he landed the role of Troy, a washed-up jock, on 'Community,' a new NBC sitcom about a gang of misfits who study together at a community college. Dan Harmon, the show’s creator, said, 'By the end of Season 2, I literally was writing scenes that ended ‘and then Donald says something to button the scene.’ I’m a pretty narcissistic guy, so for me to do that I had to know that, one, he was more talented than I was and, two, he was a better person than I was, that he wouldn’t misuse his power over me.'"

It’s Never Too Early For Gregg Popovich To Call A Timeout
"Popovich’s dedication to precision and his highly choreographed style haven’t always gone over perfectly with his players, of course. Creative playmakers Tony Parker and Manu Ginobili, both of whom figure to reach the Hall of Fame someday, have said it took time for them to adjust to Popovich. But the 69-year-old has never been shy about deviating from established coaching norms — sometimes in ways that aren’t immediately recognizable. In the past, Popovich would call timeouts a minute or two ahead of first-quarter commercial breaks that were scheduled to happen anyway — a practice that allowed him to sit his starters and buy them a little bit of extra rest. He’d then bring those players back much earlier in the second quarter than most opponents would, often allowing the Spurs to dominate second periods as a result. (Something easier to recognize: He isn’t afraid to sub all five of his starters out at once if he’s unhappy with effort or execution.)"

How LeBron James fixed his back and is on track to play all 82 games
"'It's every day. Around the clock every single day, working on my body," James said. "Either with treatment or working on my body in the weight room. Continuing just to build strength throughout the season when everybody else is kind of tearing down ... not putting too much pounding on my legs when I'm on the court, but being very efficient. I've kind of figured that out in my 15th season.' James is known to personally spend seven figures a year caring for his body, and Raimon is part of that tab. So are personal chefs and masseuses. He also gets private treatments with liquid nitrogen to help reduce inflammation. James' home facilities rival those of professional teams. In his home in Akron, James has a fully outfitted workout gym, hot and cold tubs and a hyperbaric chamber."

What’s Holding Blacks Back?
"In the grip of this seductive ideology, blacks have made the immobilizing assumption that individual initiative can lead only to failure, with only a few exceptionally gifted or lucky exceptions. Yet many groups have triumphed over similar (or worse) obstacles—including millions of Caribbean and African immigrants in America, from Colin Powell to the thousands of Caribbean children succeeding in precisely the crumbling schools where black American kids fail. Indeed, thinkers such as Thomas Sowell and Stephan and Abigail Thernstrom argue that American blacks could have advanced—and were advancing—even without the civil rights legislation of the sixties and the racial preferences of the seventies, since black unemployment was at an all-time low in the mid-sixties, and the black middle class was already growing fast. But these facts can’t outweigh the almost narcotic pleasure that underdoggism provides a race plagued by self-doubt."
