THE VALLEY CURRENT®️ COMPUTERLAW GROUP LLP

When we talk about the bullying problem in America, we tend to focus on the children who are tormented in school or online because bullies eventually grow up and act like adults, right? Unfortunately, some bullies never learn to act like decent human beings, and they carry their crude behaviors into adulthood where it can be modeled as successful tactics to children. Between younger generations taking offense to the smallest microaggression and older generations tendencies to make brazen, hurtful comments, it’s clear that bullying is taking its toll on civilization, and it is showing up in...

THE VALLEY CURRENT®️ COMPUTERLAW GROUP LLP

As much as we wish, we cannot interfere with or slow down the process of aging. What we can do is learn how to prevent and cure diseases that increase our longevity. There’s a whole industry of startup companies dedicated to pursuing a lifespan and a health span that goes to age 100 and possibly a whole lot longer. Could we really be just one major health-related scientific breakthrough from hitting age 100 with ease? Should we adjust our diet and exercise plan to make this feasible? Maybe making it to old age is just plain luck. Whatever it is, host Jack Russo and Dr. Leonard Hayflick...

THE VALLEY CURRENT®️ COMPUTERLAW GROUP LLP

How many times have you looked at your email, found an invitation to join a class action lawsuit, and wondered if it’s even worth it? While there’s usually little to no downside to joining these lawsuits, it may take years for the case to settle with a laughably minimal payout due to the large number of claimants. However, sometimes the real payoff comes in the form of programmatic relief the way it did for CPA Steve Rabin when he took on PricewaterhouseCoopers for age discrimination. Today host Jack Russo finds out how Steve Rabin opened the door for other older financial workers facing...

The Valley Current®: NAR lawsuit – What does it mean for the real estate industry? show art The Valley Current®: NAR lawsuit – What does it mean for the real estate industry?

THE VALLEY CURRENT®️ COMPUTERLAW GROUP LLP

For years Joe Cucchiara has been stating that big changes were coming to real estate. It’s been a long time coming, but the industry is finally being forced to change and adapt to new technology. The National Association of Realtors (NAR) took a major blow today after being found guilty of artificially inflating commissions. In addition to paying $418M over the next few years, the NAR must also implement a number of systemic changes that will benefit consumers. Is this lawsuit enough to force the real estate industry to adapt to technology and begin streamlining the homebuying process to...

THE VALLEY CURRENT®️ COMPUTERLAW GROUP LLP

Let’s face it, businesses love to show off. When you’re representing a brand, you want to show off that brand with office spaces that are clean and comfortable with all the amenities a workspace requires. Before covid ("BC") even startup  companies sunk big money and effort into making their workplace attractive. Now post-COVID ("PC") hybrid workstations and shared open workstations have become standard. In fact, companies have downscaled their physical spaces since there is no need to have a giant building that sits empty most days. So what does a startup or even any size company...

THE VALLEY CURRENT®️ COMPUTERLAW GROUP LLP

Years ago, the height of legal technology was having a keynote system that would allow you to search through printed case summaries using indexes. Thankfully the internet has made research faster and more efficient compared to scanning through yards of paper, but AI could make research even faster. When Mark Doble went to law school, he figured out he was far more interested in legal tech than practicing law. Thankfully Mark didn’t let his education go to waste when he formed Alexi – an AI based platform that understands and relays complex laws in a way that will aid lawyers through the...

THE VALLEY CURRENT®️ COMPUTERLAW GROUP LLP

Between the many lawsuits of Donald Trump and Elon Musk, its hard to remember if there has ever been so much news regarding state or federal litigation. The Supreme Court unsurprisingly ruled that Colorado could not remove Donald Trump from the presidential ballot as we cannot have 50 states doing 50 different things in an otherwise very binary election. What people did not predict was a unanimous decision which also objected to reasoning that only Congress can address electoral college issues. Can the courts handle the massive onslaught of cases? Host Jack Russo asks Professor Rafael Chodos...

THE VALLEY CURRENT®️ COMPUTERLAW GROUP LLP

The computer has come a long way since the 1970’s when we programmed on mainframes. Back then it was obvious that something better would come around, but did we really think computer use would become so prevalent? Today computers and the internet are used everywhere. From stores to banks, we use them to do everything from ordering food to sending our friends money after they pick up the tab. Unfortunately, criminals also know how to use and abuse computers. Not only do countries hack each other for data, but the average consumer is too often tricked into revealing sensitive information....

THE VALLEY CURRENT®️ COMPUTERLAW GROUP LLP

Can a company’s potential only be as good as its culture? A lot goes on in a workplace between hiring and firing and what happens in that company is fundamental for attracting top quality talent. One thing that has become clear since the pandemic is that companies can no longer push employees back into the office. This alone has presented a new set of obstacles as in-person interactions are still highly valuable in the workplace and younger generations may suffer from the lack of socialization and mentoring. Host Jack Russo looks to Margret Graziano and Andrew Gardiner to discuss managing a...

THE VALLEY CURRENT®️ COMPUTERLAW GROUP LLP

 What do current college students studying product design and entrepreneurship see as to their future lifespans, healthspans, and workspans? Is it really that crazy to think that living to 100 years old and being healthy through it is a realistic probability for society’s youngest members? Though none of us can predict the future, we can safely assume that our health span and life span will increase alongside modern medicines advancements. As awesome as a longer health and lifespan sounds, a life that is both long and rich will require funding from a longer work span. Today Jack Russo...

 Is there any factor more important to evolution than forward-looking collaboration? Whether it’s family, society, business, or politics, leaders are needed to bring people together and inspire them to work towards a single goal. However, there is one major drawback to mass collaboration – and it hurts those with the most power. The more information and resources a CEO shares (especially in a knowledge worker environment), the more his or her power is diminished. On the other hand, keeping information secret among a small group of officials prevents the company from co-creating and being competitive. Is there any way for leaders to win? Today host Jack Russo and Tom Casey look at Congress' unwillingness to collaborate and compare it to Gen X leaders who are ready to collaborate as they move into senior positions.
