Why is it, that at least one Doubletree, you have set the systems running the televisions (according to the repairperson I met yesterday) to change, at random times, from the channel that I want to watch to the Movie Promo channel, thereby interrupting my v...

Why I quit LVAC and switched to Lifetime Fitness, and why I'm really happy about the switch.
There's nothing wrong with LVAC .  It's a nice gym, and it's reasonably priced.  But I love Lifetime Fitness , even though there's a huge price differential.  So why did I switch? The fundamental reason has to do with my chosen sport, which is ballroom danc...

Great minds think alike -- about compensation models for law firms.
I came away from Liane Jackson's ABA Journal article, $10K prize-winning hackathon team dreams up new compensation model for law firms, doing a happy dance:  not just because I liked the ideas put forth by the winner but also because I've been writing about...

R.I.P., Steve Zamora
Steve passed away suddenly, and my heart goes out to his family.  Steve was the dean at UH Law Center immediately before I came on board, and his graciousness and kindness showed what a mensch he was.  Always willing to pitch in and help in any way possible...

Love this place! Everyone's really friendly and welcoming here, and there's no hard sell about lessons. For a non-Fred, independent student like me, it's especially nice to go into a studio and still feel like part of the family. The floor's great, and the location's convenient. Floor rent is very reasonable. When the studio does dance parties, even non-Fred people can come. Worth checking out!
