Representatives of consumer interests, corporations, and the courts will discuss and defend their viewpoints in a session that begins at 4 p.m. and runs at least until 6 p.m. The Business Law program at the UM Carey School of Law invites your coverage of the event; your RSVP is requested.
The panelists are: F. Paul Bland, Jr., Public Justice; Christopher R. Drahozal, University of Kansas School of Law; Alan S. Kaplinsky, Ballard Spahr, LLP; Nicole Frush Munro, Hudson Cook, LLP; Hon. Randall J. Newsome, JAMS, Retired Fed. Bankruptcy Judge; and William R. Wade-Gery, Consumer Financial Protection Bureau. The moderator is Christine A. Edwards of Winston & Strawn, LLP.
The program is hosted through the generous support of the Pittler Fund for Excellence in Business Law. It will be held in the Ceremonial Moot Court Room. The program reflects the UM Carey School’s commitment to engaging in critical and creative thinking about cutting edge issues in business law.

The Light: Global study gets underway with online user survey
Light has a fundamental impact on our sense of well-being and performance. In cooperation with Zumtobel, a supplier of lighting solutions, Fraunhofer IAO has launched a global user survey of lighting quality in offices. The objective is to identify the best lighting conditions for a variety of spaces and lighting ...
Quantum entanglement, a perplexing phenomenon of quantum mechanics that Albert Einstein once referred to as “spooky action at a distance,” could be even spookier than Einstein perceived.
Physicists at the University of Washington and Stony Brook University in New York believe the phenomenon might be intrinsically linked with wormholes, hypothetical features of space-time that in popular science fiction can provide a much-faster-than-light shortcut from one part of the universe to another.
But here’s the catch: One couldn’t actually ...
A star is formed when a large cloud of gas and dust condenses and eventually becomes so dense that it collapses into a ball of gas, where the pressure heats the matter, creating a glowing gas ball – a star is born.
New research from the Niels Bohr Institute, among others, shows that a young, newly formed star in the Milky Way had such an explosive growth, that it was initially about 100 times brighter than it is now. The results are published in the scientific journal, Astrophysical Journal Letters.
The young ...
EPFL scientists have shown how to achieve a dramatic increase in the capacity of optical fibers; Their simple, innovative solution reduces the amount of space required between the pulses of light that transport data
Optical fibers carry data in the form of pulses of light over distances of thousands of miles at amazing speeds. They are one of the glories of modern telecommunications technology.
However, their capacity is limited, because the pulses of light need to be lined up one after the other in ...
NASA's Hurricane and Severe Storms Sentinel airborne mission known as HS3 wrapped up for the 2013 Atlantic Ocean hurricane season at the end of September, and had several highlights. HS3 will return to NASA’s Wallops Flight Facility in Wallops Island, Va., for the 2014 Atlantic hurricane season.
During the 2013 mission, two unmanned Global Hawks flew from Wallops for the first time. The mission highlights included studying the Saharan Air Layer, following the genesis of a tropical storm, finding a unique hybrid core or center circulation in a redeveloped storm, obtaining measurements on the strongest side of ...
