    Nomadic Community Living in a Bus in New York City

    I hit the road at 17, just kind of wanted to do my own thing. My mom calls me her Gypsy Child. In order to live in these different places I’ve had to live very economically and I found that living in RVs, sailboats, buses have all been very cheap and affordable and made my gypsy life possible. I’ve lived in seven sailboats, six RVs, and now one bus so total of fourteen mobile homes in my lifetime so far. It’s definitely a lifestyle that fits my, fits my life. I mean I’ve always been mobile and to be able to bring my house with me everywhere I go, it’s…

    Solar System Dynamics: Orbits and Kepler’s Laws

    The planets orbit the Sun in a counterclockwise direction as viewed from above the Sun’s north pole, and the planets’ orbits all are aligned to what astronomers call the ecliptic plane. The story of our greater understanding of planetary motion could not be told if it were not for the work of a German mathematician named Johannes Kepler. Kepler lived in Graz, Austria during the tumultuous early 17th century. Due to religious and political difficulties common during that era, Kepler was banished from Graz on August 2nd, 1600. Fortunately, an opportunity to work as an assistant for the famous astronomer Tycho Brahe presented itself and the young Kepler moved his…

    Law Day – 2018

    >>Last weekend, and so for some of us, there were not nearly the level of experiential opportunities that we provide the students today. Here, we have a number of clinical opportunities. One of the ones that is doing amazing work, for example, is the Veterans’ Clinic. We have served over 90 veterans, bringing in over a million and a half dollars or better for veterans whose benefits were denied through the system, and we helped them through the claim system. And so, that’s one of the things I’m really proud of, is the service we provide for our nation’s veterans, for our clinical opportunities. We’ve, of course, got the Prosecution…

    What is the difference between collision and comprehensive insurance coverage? | Meldon Law Firm

    (soothing music) – The difference between collision and comprehensive insurance coverage is that collision insurance covers your car, automobile, truck, motorcycle. Comprehensive insurance covers everything else. So if you’re in an accident, and your car has $7,000 worth of damage, that would be covered under collision. If you had a computer in your car, or other personal items that were destroyed in the accident, that would be covered under your comprehensive. It’s important to have an attorney explain what kind of insurance coverage you have. We can explain how to get the maximum benefits for the insurance that they’ve purchased. (soothing music)

    Facing Re-Foreclosures Due to Bartram

    Hi, this is Real Estate and Foreclosure Defense Attorney Roy Oppenheim. I want to talk a little bit today about what’s going on in the foreclosure jurisprudence in the state of Florida, now that we are in the beginning of the second quarter, and we’re seeing some very interesting things. Number one, what we’re seeing is a lot of folks are being re-foreclosed on, not just a second time, but a third time, because of Bartram. And basically, folks who thought that they were protected by Bartram, by the five year statute of limitations, are now learning based on Supreme Court decision, that in fact they’re not. There’s some interesting…

    Supreme Court and Capital Punishment | Q&A with former Solicitor General Donald Verrilli Jr.

    CAROL STEIKER: Good afternoon. Good afternoon. We’re very lucky to have a special lunch speaker with us today. He doesn’t really need an introduction. And in fact, he has an introduction, a bio in our program. But Donald Verrilli is well known to all of us as a solicitor general in the Obama Administration up until this past June. Probably best known for his successful defense of the Affordable Care Act in the Court, and also for his representation of the United States in defense of the constitutional recognition of same-sex marriage, among many other cases. He has had an illustrious career as a lawyer and an appellate litigator in…

    [MUSIC PLAYING] RISA GOLUBOFF: Hello, and welcome back to Common Law, a podcast from the University of Virginia School of Law. I’m Risa Goluboff, the dean. LESLIE KENDRICK: And I’m Leslie Kendrick, the vice dean. As we’ve been talking about in our first few episodes, this season is focused on when law changed the world. Sometimes, that’s changing the world for the better or worse, and sometimes, as we’re learning, it’s about the road not taken. RISA GOLUBOFF: That’s right, Leslie. And so far, we’ve looked at a number of different turning points in American history and in legal history, like how the nation handled slaveholders’ land during and after…
