Theater law is in the books

first_imgTheater law is in the books August 15, 2004 Regular News Theater law is in the bookscenter_img Something a little different may soon arrive at a law school near you — theater law.While law students traditionally have studied contracts, criminal law, and constitutional law, Nova Southeastern University’s law Professor Robert M. Jarvis felt it was high time they learned about theater law. He co-wrote what us believed to be the first law school textbook on the subject, titled “Theater Law: Cases and Materials,” a 500-page book being published this summer by Carolina Academic Press, Durham, North Carolina ( other subjects, the book includes chapters on playwrights, producers, directors, performers, and crew members. It also features sample theater contracts so that students can better understand how the industry works. In addition to Jarvis, 11 other law school professors from California, Florida, Louisiana, Michigan, Minnesota, New York, Pennsylvania, and Washington, D.C., helped write the book.“Theater law is a wonderful subject for law students to sink their teeth into,” Jarvis said. “It’s got great stories, lots of passion, colorful characters, and a little bit of everything — from history to economics to law.”Jarvis used the book to teach theater law this summer at NSU’s Shepard Broad Law Center where he has been a law professor since 1987. The idea for the book came to him in 2001, when he realized that entertainment law textbooks were focusing on movies and television and leaving out the stage.last_img read more

The man in charge of NASA’s human spaceflight resigns days before the first manned launch since 2011

first_imgTwo people with knowledge of the situation who spoke on the condition of anonymity to discuss the personnel matter said his resignation was spurred when Loverro broke a rule during NASA’s recent procurement of a spacecraft capable of landing humans on the moon.In an interview, Loverro declined to discuss the exact details of why he resigned.“It had nothing to do with commercial crew,” he said. “It had to do with moving fast on Artemis, and I don’t want to characterize it in any more detail than that.” Artemis is NASA’s program to return people to the moon.Loverro said there were “no sour grapes” and that he holds “NASA in great respect. I hope they can continue on everything they started and will follow through on their plans.”On May 27, SpaceX is scheduled to launch two NASA astronauts on a test flight of the Dragon spacecraft to the space station. In a statement Tuesday, NASA indicated the launch would proceed without delay.Our @NASA_SLS rocket will launch the #Artemis missions and its astronauts to the Moon.

Powered by Firework Since the approval of use by FIFA in the 2018 FIFA World Cup, the Video Assistant Referee system, or VAR, has been making its entry into all the major football leagues. However, not all players of the beautiful game are apparently fond of it, and one of them is Liverpool FC forward Mo Salah.Advertisement Image Courtesy: ReutersIn an interview with CNN, the 27 year old stated that he is not in favour of the technology, and would rather side with the orthodox methods, that keep the matches more organic.The Egyptian said: “I don’t like it. That’s my answer, always. I don’t like it. I love football how it is. It’s like that with the mistakes of the referee, with the aggression from the player sometimes.”Advertisement “It’s OK sometimes to protect the players from dangerous play. But OK, that’s it, in my opinion, that could be the only reason that happened, just to protect the players. “The winger believes its the errors that make the game more thrilling.Advertisement “But for me, I accepted the football with the mistakes of the referee, mistakes of the player, I don’t know, whatever. That’s how the football gets more excited.” The UEFA Champions League winner said.Salah also stated that VAR can cause players to be afraid of celebrating a goal, or can go in favour of winning penalties.“More penalties for me, you will see that” he later added.Watch the interview here, courtesy to CNN International’s official Twitter: Advertisementlast_img read more
