Even if you speak pretty good Spanish, it would be understandable if you thought “traspaso” was trespassing, “bienes raíces” were good roots and “catastrado” would refer to a man horribly mutilated. You might think of a “corredor” as a jogger and “servidumbre” as serfdom, while scratching your head over “fideicomiso” or “gravamen.” These are just a few of the terms used in the Costa Rican real estate business every day. Real estate lingo can be hard enough to decipher in your own language, let alone in “Tico” Spanish. But we’re here to help, so we developed this guide to Spanish real estate terms used in Costa Rica.

This past week The National Law Journal published an article that examined how lower courts are ruling in the wake of Epic Systems Corp. v. Lewis, a significant 2018 decision on workplace arbitration contracts. Ruling 5-4 in Epic, the U.S. Supreme Court ruled that contracts requiring employees to arbitrate individually rather than collectively must be enforced, concluding the bar on collective action doesn’t violate the National Labor Relations Act. Here’s what the NLJ’s analysis found: About 63 percent of decisions citing Epic were resolved in favor of the defendant. When citing Epic in the context of class action litigation, judges compelled arbitration slightly more than half the time. In workplace litigation, judges citing Epic compelled arbitration nearly 70 percent of the time where arbitration was the main issue before the court. To conduct its analysis, The National Law Journal identified lower court cases that cited Epic through December 2018 with help from … [Read more...] about Data Snapshot: Measuring the Impact of a Major SCOTUS Decision

It’s not about bumps any more. And you’ll look in vain for old friends like the area of philoprogenitiveness. But looking at the brightly-coloured semantic maps of the new ‘brain dictionary‘ it’s hard not to remember phrenology. Phrenology was the view that different areas of the brain were the home of different personal traits; mirth, acquisitiveness, self esteeem and so on. The size of these areas corresponded with the strength of the relevant propensity and well-developed areas produced bumps which a practitioner could identify from the shape of the skull, allowing a diagnosis of the subject’s personality and moral nature. Phrenology was bunk, of course; but come on now; we shouldn’t treat it as a pretext for dismissing every proposal for localisation of brain function.. Moreover, the new paper by Alexander G. Huth, Wendy A. de Heer, Thomas L. Griffiths, Frédéric E. Theunissen and Jack L. Gallant describes a vastly more … [Read more...] about The New Phrenology?
