first_imgThe Kansas Supreme Court last week adopted a rule allowing attorneys living in Kansas with their spouses who are members of the military to temporarily practice law without taking the state-administered uniform bar exam.The change is intended to ease the hardship on military spouses moving to Kansas who have been admitted to practice law in another state or the District of Columbia.“Kansas has a long tradition of support for the armed forces. This change in Supreme Court practice reflects the state’s strong commitment to supporting military families, and it will be important for those military families it affects,” said Attorney General Derek Schmidt, according to a news release from the Kansas Adjutant General’s Department.Eighteen states have already passed similar rules, and 13 more have proposed or are considering admission of military spouses, according to the Kansas Office of Judicial Administration.The court studied the issue for more than a year. “It was not an easy thing to say, ‘Yes that makes sense,’ because we want to be fair to our Kansas lawyers who did have to take the bar exam and pass it,” Chief Justice Lawton Nuss told the Hays Daily News.“We looked at how other states were handling this and looked at other rules, and tried to then develop a rule that brought together what we saw as good parts of all of them,” said Justice Marla Luckert.

From 5-7 P.MThe controversial police, “padlock law,” was recently implemented in shutting down what some describe as a nefarious BP gas station at the corner of Forest Park Avenue and Windsor Mill Road, accused of being complicit in criminal activity in and around the business. We’ll explore the use of the padlock law with our panel of experts. Plus, The Mod Squad, Taya Graham and Stephen Janis of The Real News Network report more on police and politics.

Researchers drill historic hole in atlantic ocean floorcenter_img © 2010 PhysOrg.com The Earth’s mantle is the part of the planet that lies between the crust and the iron ball at its center, and to reach it, would require drilling down from a position in the ocean, because the crust is much thinner there. Even still, it would mean drilling through five miles of solid rock. And if that doesn’t sound hard enough, temperatures increase the farther down you go, and could reach as high as 1,050 degrees Fahrenheit; high enough to render useless most modern drill bits. Last but not least is the problem of atmospheric pressure, which increases the deeper you go, to somewhere in the neighborhood of 4 million pounds per square foot near the mantle. That last one may not seem like much of a problem, but with exploratory drilling, it becomes a problem rather quickly when you remember that it’s not just a hole they plan to dig, but a hole that can be used to extract samples from very far below.To retrieve a sample, the drillers would have to rely on drills without a riser (drills that use double pipes for venting gases) which would mean pumping seawater down into the hole through the drill pipe with sufficient pressure to force whatever is being dug back up to the surface so that it can be examined.This would not be the first time that a sample of the mantle would be recovered however, as volcanoes and such have been forcing under-crust material to the surface for eons; it would be the first time that a sample was found though that hasn’t been tainted by the process that brought it up to us, and that scientists say, is worth whatever the cost might add up to over time as the project carries on through years of laborious drilling.The pair plan to begin searching for a suitable site somewhere in the Pacific this spring, but don’t expect the technology, nor the funding to allow them to start drilling till perhaps 2018.
