Miami business hawks pro-police collector coins. One state says its design breaks the law

As the nation grapples with tensions over cases of police brutality, a small Miami company says it’s found a successful niche selling pro-law-enforcement “challenge coins” and pins online.

The company, LEO Challenge Coins, hawks collector-type coins that depict police badges and emblems from agencies from around the country, plus body armor, rifles, American flags, President Donald Trump in heroic poses and even Baby Yoda wearing a coronavirus mask.

But one coin depicting a Virginia trooper — who earned online notoriety for cursing and preening to the camera during a video-recorded traffic stop — is drawing heat, including from the state itself. Virginia’s Secretary of the Commonwealth this week issued a cease-and-desist order to the Miami company, threatening fines and even jail time because the coin displays the state seal.

“As keeper of the Seals, I request that you cease such usage and remove any representation of the seal of

Feng Shui Lessons From a Design Master Who Has Your Back

This article is part of our latest Design special report, which is about taking creative leaps in challenging times.

I was clearly in over my head.

When I signed up for an online course in feng shui, an ancient Chinese practice of using design to enhance health and prosperity, I somehow missed the part about its being a “master” class. My fellow students included a graduate of a three-year program on the subject and three women whose homes already had been feng shui-ed by our instructor, Judith Wendell, the founder of Sacred Currents, a Manhattan-based consulting firm.

I, meanwhile, was a complete novice. And I was still struggling with the basics — including how to place the bagua, a template that is used to divide a space into nine zones — while my peers were ticking off “the producing order” of the five elements.

But I wasn’t the

Innovative Strategies Are Improving Early Design Circuit Verification

Layout vs. schematic (LVS) circuit verification is an essential stage in the integrated circuit (IC) design verification cycle. However, given today’s large design sizes, numerous hierarchies, and complex foundry decks, meeting planned tapeout deadlines in the quickest turnaround time (TAT) can be difficult. In an effort to minimize TAT, most design teams now use parallelized design flows, where various blocks are implemented in parallel with the full-chip design. These blocks, which consist of both internal and 3rd-party supplier intellectual property (IP), are frequently in different stages of completion during the verification cycle, as shown in figure 1.


Fig. 1: Parallel design flows often contain blocks in different stages of completion.

However, design teams typically can’t wait to run LVS verification until all the blocks are complete and implemented, for several reasons:

  • Merging completed blocks can result in numerous connectivity errors between the blocks
  • There is less time to debug errors
