Nahzy Buck is a freelance Farsi linguist and educator, having most recently worked as a Research Translator for the Dari Translation Project at Carnegie Mellon University in 2009. Among her other positions, Nahzy was an Intelligence Analyst for the Royal Canadian Mounted Police (RCMP) and for the Canadian Security Intelligence Service (CSIS) in Ottawa, Canada. She taught as an adjunct Professor of Persian Language and Culture in the Department of Iranian Studies at Hankuk University (University of Foreign Studies) in Seoul, South Korea, for five years. She was also an adjunct Professor of Middle East History at Millikin University in Decatur, Illinois. A native speaker of Persian (Farsi), Nahzy also has a command of written Arabic, which is uncommon for native speakers of Persian. She received her Master’s degree in International Relations from Kyung Hee University in Seoul, and has legal training from the Thomas M. Cooley Law School in Lansing, Michigan, with a focus on constitutional law and civil rights. She has long been an advocate of religious minority rights, especially with regard to the plight of the Baha’is in Iran who, among other things, have been barred from access to university education for the past 30 years by government policy.
Wow. Cooley should be proud. But, wait! She didn't graduate from Cooley. She actually sued Cooley for expelling her from law school when she has a disability. She lost that law suit. Poor lady. It's really not her fault. She's obviously very intelligent. Her husband, also a Cooley Grad, is a professor at MSU. And her son is the youngest student to ever attend MSU. However, as we discussed earlier, Tom Cooley has a notoriously low curve (2.0 to 2.4). So, judge Ms. Buck as you may, she's evidence that some people are doomed to fail. Including highly intelligent and accomplished people.
The second bit of juicy gossip is really sad, actually. The author of this blog, Lloyd Johnson, graduated from Tom Cooley in 1989. And, in 2010, he was murdered by his wife. She was charged with murder and the unauthorized practice of Medicine--of all things. Apparently, she had bloody tissue in her fridge. Wow. Macabre!
Home healthcare providers had been hired, but Johnson was far too dedicated to his work as an attorney to keep the appointments, she said.So, she treated it herself--killing him? Not sure. But it makes me grateful to be a not-so-busy-or-dedicated attorney and still alive. Right?
I can't make this shit up.
Thanks Tipster! I hope you make the cut at Tom Cooley!
The manner of death is accidental related to that old open wound from a boating accident,” he said.
Some of the contributing causes of death to the 413-pound Johnson were hypertensive cardio-vascular disease, diabetes, liver cirrhosis and morbid obesity.Look's like it wasn't murder after all. It was the lifestyle of an attorney. :) Go Cooley! Thanks Tipster!
