Law School Grad Goes Into Labor During Bar Exam, Finishes Test

A recent law school grad who was taking the bar exam in order to become a lawyer was complicated by the fact that her water broke mid-exam. She completed the test afterward. 

Brianna Hill, who just completed law school at Chicago’s Loyola University, took her bar exam last Monday, which lined up with her 38th week of pregnancy. Like a lot of things this year the timing had been junked up by the pandemic, which ended up pushing her exam date back to Oct. 5. As one might expect, that switch of dates proved pretty stressful.

“I thought I would only be 28 weeks pregnant when I took the bar,” Hill said to CNN. “However, due to the pandemic, the test was pushed to October and I was going to be 38 weeks. I joked about taking the test from my hospital bed. Lesson learned!”

Reports state that Hill had

Brunswick Area Historical Society fundraiser is anything but ‘old school’

BRUNSWICK, Ohio — As the summer harvest began to wane at the Brunswick Farmers Market, some new ideas cropped up to help the nonprofit Brunswick Area Historical Society in its efforts to raise funds for its nearly completed “old school” building.

With large-crowd fundraisers stymied by COVID-19, and even many of the usual summer activities curtailed this year, fundraising was painfully slow.

That’s when a new vendor at the markets this year, Stacey Asvestas, stepped in to see if she could help.

Once she heard that the historical society needed to raise money for the building that will house 200 years of Brunswick school artifacts, she jumped into action.

Actually, she skated into action.

Asvestas roller-skated around Heritage Farm from her vendor’s spot this summer, so she skated to each of the vendors at the market and asked if they would contribute to an auction. Because the market season was

Florida high school student arrested after refusing to wear mask, lawyer calls it ‘government abuse’

A 16-year-old boy was arrested last month after refusing to wear a face mask at a Florida high school amid the coronavirus pandemic, a report said Tuesday.

The law firm of Jose Rivas, the family’s attorney, called the incident “government abuse” of a teen suffering from panic attacks, the Orlando Sentinel reported.

TEXAS TEACHER FIRED FOR REFUSING TO STOP WEARING ‘BLACK LIVES MATTER’ MASK: REPORT

“We will be seeking just and fair compensation for the illegal arrest … and the harm that this action caused him,” the law firm said in a statement.

The teen’s mother told the paper her son has an anxiety disorder. She said he was arrested after having gone to the school office for feeling panicky from having trouble breathing in the mask.

“Should they be arresting a 16-year-old child knowing he already has a medical condition?” Rivas told the paper.

Sacramento City Councilman Eric Guerra talks on Thursday, Oct. 1, 2020, at his Tahoe Park home, about the struggles faced by Latino political candidates. “The importance of having a diverse electorate and even encouraging immigrants who become naturalized to run for office is that you bring a new perspective into our government,” he said.

NSW government plans to digitise school forms

The New South Wales government has announced it wants to eventually digitise all school forms at public primary schools, starting with giving parents the option to enrol their children online via their local school website.

Minister for Education Sarah Mitchell said offering online enrolments as an alternative to handwritten applications would save parents and school administration teams time.

“A single paper enrolment form can take 40 minutes to process, whereas schools using online enrolment can complete up to six enrolment applications in just 30 minutes,” she said.

“What was formerly a 16-page form will now be a streamlined experience.”

As the rollout of online enrolments continues to all public primary schools by 2021, the state government said it is already looking at digitising other frequently used school forms. This will include parent-teacher interview bookings, student absences, and HSC subject selection.

“We want to cut the number of physical forms down

Law School And DUI

Over the previous few weeks, I’ve had to make important edits to my second e-book, “The Subsequent Wave of Applied sciences.” In doing so, I’ve been protecting in mind Melvin Kranzberg’s six laws of technology. A lot of places have severe laws on the books regarding mistreatment of livestock. Quantum Logic is a really interesting instance which invalidates all the laws of Classical Logic. Not that I care much what the remainder of the world things, but I can understand their trepidation when the world’s solely superpower straps on their six shooters and goes looking for folks.

This information is just not offered as legal or prescriptive advice and it’s worthwhile to examine your native laws for specificity.

The Government Response to the Previous School Massacre – Part 1 in The Right Response?

The 2012 mass shooting at Sandy Hook, Connecticut has disturbing similarities to the 1999 Columbine High School mass shooting where two angry young men slaughtered a teacher and twelve students.

Since all actions have both seen and unseen consequences, an effective response to reduce the incidence as well as mitigate the effects of such massacres needs careful consideration. Unseen repercussions can often make a situation drastically worse. Economists now know lots about moral hazard, for example.

The Response to such Massacres

Many people have emotional responses that ignore such consequences. Brian Giattina, a school board member in Birmingham, Alabama, is reported as saying guns send the wrong message. “It tells them we have to have a gun to protect them. It is a complex problem that needs to involve mental health, education, law enforcement and the community.”

Yet over the last fifty years, with just one single exception (the Gabby … Read More
