Share to Twitter Share to Linkedin The Green Bay Packers will host the San Francisco 49ers in the divisional playoffs on Saturday at 7:15 p.m. (CST). The sixth-seeded 49ers upset third-seeded Dallas, 23-17, on Sunday. San Francisco (11-7) will now travel to top-seeded Green Bay (13-4) in a matchup of familiar foes.

Raheem Mostert, who went undrafted and was playing with his seventh NFL team, set a 49ers’ record with 220 rushing yards and had four rushing touchdowns.

The cloud-based data warehousing company went public at $120 per share, started trading at $245, and hit an all-time high of $405 a share last November.

Share to Twitter Share to Linkedin One of the paradoxes of the voting rights debate is that so much heat occurs over the election of people who wind up not even being the ones making the laws. The unelected legislators and administrators populating the bureaucracies do most of that . The other paradox is that we're voting to elect people to do things that none of us have the right to do to one another; and in turn cannot delegate authority for to a legislator. More on that another time, but the United States’ historical status is that of a limited republic, not the unlimited democracy being pressed for today by some factions. Columbia University scholar Phillip Hamburger has described the modern administrative state as running counter to the Constitution, which “ expressly bars the delegation of legislative power.” One would not know it from the furious debate over a voting rights bill and Senate rules changes to the filibuster to make it … [Read more...] about Voting Rights Versus Rule By The Unelected: The 2022 “Unconstitutionality Index”
Share to Twitter Share to Linkedin Judge R. Gary Klausner of the United States District Court for the Central District of California upended the United States women’s national team’s (USWNT) fight for equal pay. Led by Alex Morgan, the players alleged that United States Soccer Federation discriminated against its female players by paying them less than male players on the men’s national team and subjected them to unequal working conditions. Asserting that the U.S. Soccer violated both the Equal Pay Act (EPA) and Title VII of the Civil Rights Act of 1964 (Title VII), the players moved for a partial motion for summary judgment. In the 32-page decision delivered on Friday, Klausner denied the players’ motion and granted, in part, U.S. Soccer’s motion. Under the EPA, the players had the burden of showing they performed substantially equal work as the male players, under similar working conditions and that the male payers were paid more. Klausner wrote that the … [Read more...] about Federal Judge Upends U.S. Women’s National Team’s Fight For Equal Pay
