Brexit: retained law and family proceedings


Family law after EU withdrawal

The pending process of EU withdrawal leaves English lawyers in a similar position, I suspect, to Anglo-Saxon lawyers immediately after the Battle of Hastings in 1066 (with the Tory Government now standing in as William the Conqueror’s victorious barons). How much of their law, they wondered, would survive the Norman Conquest? In the case of modern lawyers and Brexit, 950 years after the Norman arrival, what retained law will be permitted following passage of the European Union (Withdrawal) Bill (‘the withdrawal bill’), now before Parliament?

The starting point for this article (and its accompanying explanation) is Brexit and Family Law (October 2017; the ‘family law withdrawal paper’ or FLWP) published by FLBA, International Academy of Family Lawyers and Resolution who describe themselves as ‘the lead specialist family law practitioners’. The paper is a short (18 page) document which aims to produce recommendations as to where…

Alaska Senator Lisa Murkowski

Alaska Senator Lisa Murkowski’s decision to agree to smash Obamacare’s individual mandate may remove one obstacle to passing the Senate Republican tax bill next week.

“I believe that the federal government should not force anyone to buy something they do not wish to buy in order to avoid being taxed,” she wrote in an op-ed in Alaska’s Daily News-Miner newspaper posted online Tuesday.

Murkowski didn’t mention the tax bill in the article. But she previously said she preferred not to mix it with health care, and she was one of three mavericks who killed the GOP’s Obamacare repeal efforts earlier this year.

Her announcement came after she said last week that Congress should act to stabilize health-insurance markets in conjunction…

UC Berkeley professor’s ‘slaughterbots’ video on killer drones goes viral

To Inform is to Influence

The potential for these bots is almost unlimited.

A swarm of these slaughterbots could neutralize all the nuclear weapons in the world, given enough resources to back them up. Quite literally, they might make nuclear weapons obsolete.

Need power?  We solved that problem two decades ago. Recharge from any convenient power source. 

</end editorial>

By Lukas Mikelionis

A UC Berkeley computer science professor helped to create a video that imagined a world where nuclear weapons were replaced by swarms of autonomous tiny drones that could kill half a city and are virtually unstoppable.

The video takes the viewer to an auditorium where a speaker showcases a drone roughly the size of a mockingbird. At one point the drone lands on his hand, the speaker quickly recalibrates it and then throws it out into the audience again. After a few seconds, the…
