Look, if a group of consenting adults want to have a naked pool party, that's none of our business. So, although I understand the gossipy intrigue in Delaware state Rep. Mike Ramone and his business hosting such events, I certainly don't understand why they had to be canceled. It all started with a post on the blog Exceptional Delaware. The site revealed that the Delaware Swim & Fitness Club in New Castle hosts a "Delaware Spa Party" each month. According to a since-deleted description on the party's website, the event was for couples and singles alike. And, yes, it was a "nudist/naturalist" shindig.The event had a list of etiquette rules: be respectful of the club as a host, don't drink too much, be kind to everyone no matter their body shape or size, always shower before entering the pool, etc.The blog's big scoop, however, was that Ramone, a Republican, owned the club that hosted these events. In TMZ-fashion, its post exposing the parties included much speculation: What goes on … [Read more...] about Delaware lawmaker’s fitness center hosted naked pool parties. So what?
Delaware's General Assembly on Tuesday voted unanimously to pass a gun control bill named after late state attorney general, and former Vice President Joe Biden's son, Beau Biden, according to Delaware Online. The Beau Biden Gun Violence Protection Act allows law enforcement to remove firearms from a person that mental health professionals have found to be a danger to themselves or others. Both the state House and Senate passed the bill unanimously, the Senate after debating for only 40 minutes. Gov. John Carney, D-Del., has already said he will sign the bill once it reaches his desk. "I personally think it's a really, really important piece of legislation," Carney said Tuesday. "So many of the incidents of gun violence involve folks with mental health issues, and this is a way of adding to the list prohibitions for possession and purchase of firearms." "My son Beau always believed that there was room for common sense gun safety legislation," Joe Biden said, according to Delaware … [Read more...] about Delaware Passes Gun Control Bill Named for Beau Biden
WILMINGTON, Del. (AP) — Six years ago as a junior at Wilmington’s Salesianum School, the typically shy Spencer Bahnsen made a splash at a school dance when he arrived with glowing LED strips strapped to his shirt and khakis. His head-turning outfit was the first version of what is now called Ultra LED Man, an 8-foot illuminated party-starter who has been making club appearances across the East Coast for a few years. While his homemade robot costume has rocked clubs from Atlantic City and Philadelphia to New York and Atlanta, Bahnsen is finding more and more gigs right here at home these days. Last month, he made his debut at The Queen in Wilmington for its Royal Nightclub DJ dance party and will return for a show Friday night. (Tickets are $12.) Earlier this month, you could have found Bahnsen, 23, in his costume at venues such as Newark’s Klondike Kate’s and Dewey Beach’s The Rusty Rudder. In fact, his Dewey debut went so well that Highway One Group, the … [Read more...] about Ultra LED Man goes from school project to Delaware club act
Home Daily News A year after Supreme Court's TC Heartland… Patent Law By Lorelei Laird Posted May 22, 2018, 7:00 am CDT The Sam B. Hall Jr. U.S. Courthouse in Marshall, Texas. Photo by Billy Hathorn, via Wikimedia Commons. The U.S. District Court for the Eastern District of Texas used to be famous as a preferred venue for plaintiffs in patent cases. But data indicates the U.S. Supreme Court put a stop to that in May of 2017 when it ruled in TC Heartland v. Kraft Food Brands Group that lawyers should use a narrow definition of “resides” when determining where venue is proper. A year later, the Texas Lawbook reports, new patent lawsuit filings in eastern Texas are down 65 percent from the day of the ruling and 74 percent since 2015. Using data from Androvett Legal Media, the article says the new national leader in patent filings is the District of Delaware. That doesn’t mean patent lawsuits have vanished from the Eastern District of Texas, however. Despite TC … [Read more...] about A year after Supreme Court’s TC Heartland ruling, patent cases are up in Delaware and LA
