Blake Dowling: Legal artificial intelligence

in Apolitical/Top Headlines by

I was meeting with the Tallahassee Chamber of Commerce’s Communications Committee; there was some brainstorming about session ideas for the upcoming Chamber Conference. There were some thoughts thrown out, and quite a few comments were made. Then someone said, “how about automation and artificial intelligence.” Suddenly, a surge of ideas and thoughts hit the room like a vicious uppercut from Mike Tyson circa 1999. All industries went into the mix: retail, auto, construction, medical and legal. We are on the…

The road for Deshaun Watson started with help from Warrick Dunn

in Sports/Top Headlines by

Think of it as Warrick Dunn helping with a few more memories. Dunn has given away homes to single parents for years as part of the legacy of his mother, an off-duty policewoman who was slain while escorting a businesswoman to the bank to make a deposit when Dunn was only 11 years old. In all, Dunn has given away 152 homes. Turns out, one of those who benefitted from Dunn’s generosity was Clemson quarterback Deshaun Watson, who grew up…

Clemson scores with one second left to dethrone Alabama

in Sports/Top Headlines by

Deshaun Watson, it seems, had grown weary of the background. No. 3 in the Heisman voting, 2015. No. 2 in the Heisman voting, 2016. No. 2 in the national championship playoffs, 2015. For most of Monday night’s game against favored Alabama, it seemed that Watson might finish short of the finish line again. Instead, he led Clemson on a 68-yard drive in the last 127 seconds, throwing a two-yard touchdown pass to Hunter Renfrow to pull out a 35-31 victory…

Clemson’s Deshaun Watson prepares for strong Alabama defense

in Sports/Top Headlines by

Deshaun Watson has looked forward to his Tampa trip, oh, for about a year now. Watson, the Clemson quarterback, was among those who weren’t satisfied when the Tigers lost a 45-40 game to Alabama a year ago. Immediately, he suggested he would see everyone in Tampa. “Just belief,” he said Wednesday in a teleconference. “That’s just the type of person I am. That’s it. I have high standards for me and my teammates, and this is where we wanted to…

Alabama’s Nick Saban tiring of questions about Lane Kiffin

in Sports/Top Headlines by

Alabama coach Nick Saban hasn’t been able to shed Lane Kiffin as easily as he might have thought. In a teleconference call Tuesday, Saban was peppered with questions about the timing of the departure of Kiffin, who Saban dumped as his offensive coordinator this week before Monday night’s national championship game. The odd-timing of the decision and Kiffin’s stated goal of working in the press box both were discussed. “We made a statement about this yesterday,” Saban said, “and really…

Clemson pounds Ohio State, prepares for Alabama in Tampa

in Sports/Top Headlines by

It wasn’t just the victory, although that was impressive enough. It wasn’t just the step, though that made a deep imprint, too. No, for Clemson University, Saturday night’s win was the kind of performance that changes perceptions. Clemson clobbered Ohio State in Saturday night’s Fiesta Bowl, winning 31-0 to advance to its second straight national championship game. Once again, Clemson will play against Alabama, which won a five-point game a year ago. Yes, Alabama is likely to be favored. But after…
