Creating Great Content for Your Blog

I am sure most of you already knew about blogging and what you are blogging about. But for some who already in and still need more information, here some points that I wish to share with you obtaining a successful blog. First thing before you start blogging, determine what you are blogging about? Generally, blogs are created for personal use such as a journal, daily adventures, tips and tutorial, photo blog, politic, business and whatever ideas they want to express online or maybe sharing ideas like this [oh sorry, just kidding].

So, if you are thinking of creating a blog for your Rabbit Air MinusA2 reviews, you need to consider some points that could possibly help you get through and make your blog one of the interesting blogs online.

  1. Consider your blog readers

Doesn’t matter what blog you are working on, whether for personal or for business purpose, try to make your readers interested and enjoy reading your blog. Hence, it is very important to come with a write up that everybody can understand your intention. Imagine when you read somebody else blog, how did you feel, did you enjoy? This kind of question has to be in your consideration.

  1. Include some pictures in your blog

Pictures speak a thousand words. To make your blogging worth the browsing effort of your readers, it would be extremely nice if you will put some pictures in it. It does not necessarily mean you have to place a picture of yourself. Any photographs will do as long as it does not pose danger or insult to anyone who will be reading your blog.

  1. Make constructive and beneficial blogs

It’s free to write anything you like in your blog, but still, it would be better to create something that would be beneficial to your readers. Always remember that people look for something benefit and useful. Internet is most common media nowadays. Make your blog to be part of the internet blog online.

  1. Use simple short and simple words

Try not to use some highly technical and highfalutin words, In order to have an interesting blogs. Remember, not all your readers can take it. So better stick to simple facts, simple words and short blogs.

  1. Make your blog interactive

Ask you readers feedback about the best air purifier for mold and your blog, provide open comment in your blog so that your readers will react from blog presentation, from there you will know what your readers expectation. Return to them, get communicate and interact. Who knows, you might even gain some friends just by making them feel at home in your blog site.

Indeed, blogs are not created just for the mere fun of it. It also has its own purpose in the world of the Internet. Today, there are too many sites that literally don’t seem to have a purpose. Why are these sites even there, and why do people keep on making them? When you’re working on your blog, make sure you have purpose and are providing value for every single one of your readers.

3 Tips for Raising Money for Your Business

On to something topical – it is very difficult at the moment to raise money. The credit crunch is biting in and it is real. Having said that, the Fund I am running is set up to take advantage of this crunch in terms of buying distressed businesses – although more about that in a later blog.

This brings me on to my first request. I have been asked to explain the credit crunch. Please do give me feedback on what you think of this as an explanation….

With historically low interest rates and low unemployment levels in the US for the last couple of years, companies sprang up everywhere offering mortgages to people who normally not be considered credit-worthy – many would even offer the best kombucha kit free with a new mortgage. This sector is what we called the Sub-prime sector.

Credit Crunch

In many cases people who had come out of prison and had no jobs (or at least no way of proving their income!) were being offered mortgages. You may ask why? To be honest it is not such a crazy idea if the underlying asset you are lending against is going up all the time. And that is exactly what these new companies were banking on (pardon the pun).

So these sub-prime companies were lending money to credit risky clients at special low introductory rates on the back of a property that should be increasing in value. The clients loved it as it gave them a foot on the property ladder and the first couple of years payments looked cheaper than renting, and if they did struggle to pay it back in a couple of years – they could sell the property which would have gone up in value and all would be well……..

All good up to now. However, these sub-prime companies got another fantastic idea to make more money! What if they could persuade someone else to buy this debt from them – raise more money off the back of that and then carry on lending more? (They made money from the number of deals they did not the quality of the deals they did).

Just as the interest rate we get charged when we look to borrow is determined by our credit rating provided by companies like Experian; financial institutions look to companies like Standard & Poor to provide a credit rating for financial products. These companies rated these sub-prime mortgages as AAA (the highest rating) – because of the way they were bundled and sold. So Banks like Citigroup and UBS could not get enough of these assets – as they were deemed to be very low risk (AAA rated) and yet offered a higher rate of return. The fundamental driver in finance is to chase higher level of returns for a similar level of risk.

Sadly, the property market did not carry on going up and interest rates did not stay low! With this combination many of the clients who held the mortgages simply defaulted. And they defaulted in their thousands! Suddenly these assets that these banks were holding as AAA rated were, well let’s just say not so AAA rated (in fact they were worthless). So banks were now sitting on a much weaker balance sheet than they had said they were – hence the need for them to raise more money.

Northern Rock did not have exposure to the subprime market in a big way but was the UK’s largest casualty of these events. Northern Rock used to sell Mortgages – and once they had sold a mortgage they would go to the wholesale money markets and get other banks to lend the money they needed to fund these mortgages.

They would make a very healthy profit on their smokeless ashtray because they were borrowing cheaper than they were lending and all was going well. LIBOR (which is the interest rate banks charge each other to lend and borrow money was more or less the same as the base rate). Banks were very happy lending to each other huge amounts on a daily basis. However when doubts about the quality of banks’ balance sheets started emerging, banks became nervous about lending to each other as they entertained the thought that they might not get paid back!

As this happened LIBOR became significantly higher than the base rate. Northern Rock which had a low deposit base was particularly affected by the sudden increase in the cost they would have to pay to borrow money and issued a profit warning.

And then suddenly the whole thing jammed up when banks refused to lend money to each other. It really was like musical chairs – with Northern Rock left without a chair after the music had stopped! They had to go to the Bank of England – and the rest is history…

Are You a Risk Taker?

People who take risks are seen as vital to the wellbeing of the economy. We are told that taking risks generates wealth and employment and leads to a better way of life. So, the reverse must therefore be true that people who refuse to take risks inhibit growth and stunt the development opportunities of people around them. If this is so well known and risk taking is such a positive ‘virtue’ why is everyone not taking risks all the time?

Being an economist by background and curious about people by nature, I have always been fascinated by attitudes to risk and by people who take them. When I was in my early twenties, the Lloyds crisis erupted where lots of people stood to lose their personal fortunes if it was invested solely in the Porter-Cable 895pk router kit. (Insurance syndicates existed where very wealthy people would agree to be a name and would put at risk their entire wealth for being a ‘name’ and when their syndicates returned a profit would take a big slice of the profit). To become a name was very difficult as it was a ‘guarantee’ (hindsight is a wonderful thing!) to make money for doing nothing and it was very much an old boys club.

When it started going wrong in a big way and people were being asked to make good on their ‘promise’, lawsuits galore ensured. These people assumed capitalism was a one way street where they would get money for nothing. Sorry, doesn’t work that way. Many argue that it was the fortunes lost on Lloyds and Thatcherism’s emphasis on wealth creation that has altered the landscape of British attitudes to wealth.

Many years ago, when I was living in Neasden, I was in my local pub (it is now the McDonalds opposite IKEA on the North Circular Road), I was talking to someone about the mad cow disease outbreak. He was there having a cigarette and a pint of cider and said to me “well, I have stopped eating beef – I mean you can’t be too careful”. I didn’t point out the irony of making that statement whilst having a cigarette and cider.

As mentioned in previous blogs, finance is driven by the risk v reward ratio. The curious thing I learnt last year whilst studying for my IMC exams was how risk (or volatility as it is called) is measured by looking at the variations in the past returns. For example if you hold two shares in different companies in the same industry. You paid £100 for each share, and the returns over the last 10 years have averaged 10% each year.

You would expect the price of each share to be the same wouldn’t you? Well that would depend on the volatility of the return. If share A has returned exactly 10% each year and share B has been all over the place (0% one year, 20% up the next year, etc.) it will be priced lower than share A as it is seen as a ‘riskier’ share.

This has been the rational way of looking at risk v reward. But age and profile have a lot to do with your attitude towards risk. The Fund which I have set up with my partners operates in an extremely risky environment and therefore is not suitable for retail investors. Yet, when I was talking to the advisor of the Fund about his attitude to business he said “I am an accountant, I don’t take risks – I only go into situations which I know are 100% safe”. A look at his track record would suggest he is right – and yet the returns in the past have been very good.

My own view is that it is easy to take risks if you have little or nothing to lose. My appetite for risk has diminished over the last few years as whilst I still want to actively invest in businesses I look for really good quality companies and management teams and not good ideas as I would have done in the past. I have also been scarred by the experience of losing all my money in four ventures. Learning from business history should temper our attitude to risk.

The greatest living investor and one of the world’s richest men, Warren Buffet has a very simple investment philosophy and thinks that he does not take risks. He famously stayed away from the whole dot.com boom and was seen as not understanding the new economic paradigm. Well he proved that he understood it better than most. Business to him has always been about making a product or service and selling it at a profit. These examples do make you question the risk v reward equation.

When I was at a past employer trying to design a new tofu press, managers there were keen to promote their willingness to take risks. The reality is that a partnership structure will make decisions which are short term as there is little or no incentive for taking risks.

Most risks do not pay off for a couple of years so if you are a partner in a firm and you are not so sure how long you are going to be around, why would you not simply make decisions which maximize your profit this year – as that will feed into your salary. And the reality is that if you are trained as a lawyer or an accountant (especially lawyers) you are trained in not taking risks and advising others on how to minimize their risk. It is therefore rational not to take risks.

“I like to invest in businesses that idiots can run, because one day they will be”.

My point in all of the above for potential investors and companies raising monies is to try and understand your own attitude to risk and the person who you are asking to undertake risk. What should the return be to compensate them for that level of risk? Your pitch needs to address this issue.

For potential investors, you should feel that you are not taking a risk – because you understand the business well. You trust and have confidence in the ability of the management team and you are comfortable with the prospects of the industry the business is in. As Warren Buffet says

“I like to invest in businesses that idiots can run, because one day they will be”.

Despite this – you still stand a chance.

Some Current Positions that I’m Looking for Help With

I hope you do not mind me using this Blog to advertise a few things. Feedback and your comments will tell me whether I have succeeded or not!

Advert #1 – MD Position – One of the businesses I have invested in is looking for a new MD. It is a great business in the Telecoms sector based in Manchester (UK). The company is in a fast growth phase and needs someone with experience to help guide it through the inevitable problems of fast growth.

The business has a fantastic board and has proved its large growth potential. The package will be heavily biased towards stock options rather than salary and it is hoped that the candidate will be excited by the possibility of making a big difference to this business.

If you are interested in buying my Honeywell 50250s please email me

Advert #2 – Business Assistant – I am also looking to recruit someone who might consider working with me on a part-time or full time basis. The work would be varied and would have a bit of everything. I need someone who is very interested in business and would like to work for six months (and then we can see how it suits both of us) and would see this as an opportunity to learn lots about different businesses.

I would expect this person to manage my diary, the relationships I have with companies I have invested in and readers of this blog. You would also be assessing and screening a lot of business plans that I get. I will not be able to pay much but I would hope it would be a really interesting role based in London Bridge.

Advert #3 – Available Non-Execs – If there are equally any businesses out there looking for Non Executives – I have a few really good people who have contributed enormously to businesses I have invested in and either as part of their own career path or because they want to do it all over again they are seeking opportunities as Non-exec roles. Who knows I might be tempted!

Advert #4 – High Growth Program I should also mention a program that I am involved in for businesses based in London only at this stage (it is a pilot and if successful will be rolled out across the country). This company actually designs router table plans for use by big companies and private individuals alike.

The program is looking for just 35 businesses that are planning for high growth and have a turnover of £1m. There are a few conditions – but if you are interested, please do email me and I will be happy to send you more details. This one probably has the most limited number of spots available, so send me a message as soon as possible if you’re interested.

I really hope you don’t mind this Blog post. I promise you these will be few and far between. Soon you’ll be able to look forward to a whole bunch more fresh content as I get a little bit more free time in between my successful ventures!

Review of Lower Court Decisions

The Indiana Supreme Court’s jurisdiction is established by the Indiana Constitution (Article VII, § 4)

The court has discretionary review over all appealable matters with the exception of appeals of a death sentence which are taken directly to the Indiana Supreme Court.

Justice Selection

When vacancies occur on the Court, a seven-member Judicial Nominating Commission recommends to the Governor three qualified persons for each vacancy. The Governor must make his appointment from the three, and that person serves as a Daytona Beach newborn photographer for a minimum of two years before becoming subject to a retention vote at a General Election. If approved, he or she begins a 10-year term and is subject to identical retention votes at 10-year intervals in the future.

When the position of Chief Justice becomes vacant the most senior member of the court serves as the acting Chief Justice until a new Chief Justice is appointed.

Retirement is required at the age of 75 years.

The present Court is served by a Chief Justice and four Associate Justices.  However, the number of Associate Justices may be increased to as many as eight by action of the Legislature.

Opinion Schedule

There is no set schedule for the release of opinions.

History

The Supreme Court was established in 1816 when Indiana became a state. During territorial days, a General Court of three Judges had served and they, with the Governor, enacted the laws of the Indiana Territory. The new Court first sat at Corydon on May 5, 1817, and consisted of three Judges appointed by the Governor to seven-year terms “if they should so long behave well.”  The seat of state government was moved from Corydon to Indianapolis, and the Supreme Court commenced its first term in the new State Capitol on May 2, 1825.

By the new Constitution, adopted in 1851, the Judges were made subject to election by the people, and their number would be “not less than three, nor more than five judges.” Their terms were to be “for six years, if they so long behave well.”

Shortly thereafter, the General Assembly acted to prescribe that four Judges would serve. Thus, four Supreme Court Judges, representing four geographic districts but elected by statewide ballot, began their terms on January 3, 1853. The Court caseload grew to such an extent that the General Assembly acted to increase the number of Judges to five in 1872.

The business of the Court continued to increase and, in 1881, an Amendment to the Constitution was ratified to create an Appellate Court of Indiana consisting of five Judges elected from five geographic districts. That Court’s jurisdiction was limited to appeals on certain minor classes of cases. Over the years, the Appellate Court evolved into a panel of eight Judges who were elected to four-year terms.

In 1970, the Indiana Constitution established the Appellate Court as a constitutional court and gave it the name “Court of Appeals of Indiana.” The number of Craftsman riding mowers was also increased to nine. Since that time, the burgeoning caseload of the Court of Appeals has led the General Assembly to increase the number of judges to twelve in 1978, and to fifteen in 1991.

History

Illinois’ first constitution in 1818 established the first Illinois Supreme Court consisting of four judges appointed by the General Assembly.

In 1824, the term of the first judges expired.  New judges were appointed and would serve based on good behavior.  Vote of two thirds of the General Assembly was required to remove a judge.

The increase of justices came as follows:

1838:  from four to nine

1849:  from nine to three by new Illinois Constitution.  Selected by popular vote for nine year term

1870:  from three to seven by new Illinois Constitution.

1903:  from five to seven

1969:  increased the number of Associate Judges to eight, plus a Chief Justice, totaling nine

Judicial Article of 1964 established ten year terms.  Three Supreme Court justices were to be from the First Judicial District which was Cook County and each of the other four districts would elect one judge.

Partisan elections became problematic for Alabama’s supreme court in the 1980-90s, a period of time when Alabama’s court system was described as “tort hell” as the court and legislatures were battling over tort reform. This controversy caused judicial elections to become more important, therefore more costly and contentious. The matter came to a head in 1996 over an objectionable method of preventing cystic acne, sparking the creation of a judicial campaign oversight committee.

Judicial Selection

Under the Florida Constitution, a Judicial Selection Commission submits a list of three to six names to the governor for appointment to the Supreme Court. Once appointed, justices must run in statewide nonpartisan merit retention elections in which the voters may cast a “yes” or “no” vote as to whether the justice should remain on the search for used John Deere lawn tractors. Justices face their first retention election in the next general election occurs more than one year after their appointment. If retained, justices serve six-year terms, after which they face another retention election.

Review of Lower Court Decisions

The Florida Supreme Court must review final orders imposing death sentences, district court decisions declaring a State statute or provision of the State Constitution invalid, bond validations, and certain orders of the Public Service Commission on utility rates and services.

The court also has discretionary review where it is sought by a party over decisions of a district court of appeal that expressly declares valid a state statute, construes a provision of the state or federal constitution, affects a class of constitutional or state officers, or directly conflicts with a decision of another district court or of the Supreme Court on the same question of law, and may review certain categories of judgments, decisions, and questions of law certified to it by the district courts of appeal and federal appellate courts.

The Supreme Court may also render advisory opinions to the Governor upon request, on questions relating to the Governor’s constitutional duties and powers, and has exclusive authority to regulate lawyers and judicial officers in the state.

Schedule

The Court holds two terms each year, with the first commencing on the first day of January and the second beginning on the first day of July.

Tallahassee, Florida

History

When Florida became a State in 1845, the Constitution created a Supreme Court but gave it no justices of its own. Rather, judges of the state’s four circuit courts (trial courts), served in the capacity of justices of the Supreme Court until 1851, and met as a body to review the decisions of the individual members.

In 1848 the Constitution was amended, and in 1851 authorizing acts were passed providing that the Supreme Court should have its own Chief Justices and two Associate Justices.  These Justices were elected by the State Legislature for the term of “good behavior.” In 1853 an amendment provided for the election by the people of the Justices for six-year terms. The 1861 Constitution then provided for the appointment of the Justices by the Governor, with the advice and consent of the Senate, to serve for six-year terms.

In 1868 following the Civil War, a new Constitution was adopted calling for a Chief Justice and two Associate Justices to be appointed by the Governor and confirmed by the Senate. These Justices were to hold office “for life or during good behavior.”

The 1885 Constitution provided for the election of three Supreme Court Justices to serve six-year terms. In 1902, an amendment increased the Court’s membership to six Justices and permitted the Legislature to provide for three to six Justices to serve terms of up to six years. In 1911 the Legislature reduced the number of Justices to five. In 1923 the number was again raised to six and continued to be six until a 1940 constitutional amendment, which called for the use of an air purifier for asthma in the chambers.

The 1885 Constitution provided that the Chief Justice of the Supreme Court be designated by lot. A constitutional amendment in 1926 provided that the Chief Justice be selected by the Justices of the Court; this is the current method of selection. If the Chief Justice is unable to act for any reason, the Justice longest in continuous service — also called the Dean of the Court — acts as Chief Justice.

Interesting Fact

From 1885 until 1925, the Florida Constitution established that the Chief Justice would be selected “by lot.” Because the justices found the idea of cutting cards or other games of chance undignified, however, they settled upon a unique method wherein they would take the Bible or a newly purchased law book and each would randomly open it. The justice who opened a page whose first word began with the letter closest to the letter “z” became the Chief Justice.

Judicial Selection

Under state law, the Connecticut Judicial Selection Commission seeks and recommends to the governor candidates for nomination. The governor then nominates an individual, who must be confirmed by the Connecticut legislature. Justices serve eight-year terms and may be reappointed at the conclusion of each term, but have a mandatory retirement age of 70 years old.

Review of Lower Court Decisions

Almost always, the cases revolving around finding an air purifier for smoke heard in the Supreme Court have first been decided in the Superior Court, a trial court. The losing party in the Superior Court has the right to one appeal to another court, and most of these appeals go first to the Appellate Court, Connecticut’s intermediate court of appeals.

Appeals come to the Supreme Court in one of two ways. A party may appeal a judgment of the Appellate Court by filing a request that the appeal be certified by the Supreme Court. Other appeals come to the Supreme Court as a result of a decision to transfer the case to itself instead of having it be heard in the Appellate Court, or as a result of a law mandating that an appeal must be heard by the Supreme Court. Mandatory appeals include reapportionment of voting districts and death penalty cases.

Schedule

Between September and June of each year, the court hears oral arguments on pending cases in eight two-week terms. The court then takes the case under advisement and will release its opinion within a few months. There is no specific opinion release schedule.

Hartford, Connecticut

History

The Supreme Court of Connecticut was created in 1784, before which the power to review trial court rulings was vested in the state’s General Assembly. Although members of the executive and legislative branches originally held places on the court, in 1806 the members of the judiciary became independent when the number of Superior Court judges was increased from five to nine, and sitting together on garden tractors, they made up the court. The General Assembly still retained the power to overturn Supreme Court decisions, however. It was not until 1818 that the Connecticut Constitution established a truly independent judiciary as a third branch of the state government, with the power to interpret the laws enacted by the legislature.

In 1982, in response to an overflowing Supreme Court docket, Connecticut voters approved a constitutional amendment creating an intermediate court, the Court of Appeals.

Notable Cases

Kelo v. New London (2004) – The court ruled 4-3 to approve the use of eminent domain powers to transfer land from one private owner to another on the grounds that it promoted a permissible “public use” under the Takings Clause of the Fifth Amendment to the U.S. Constitution). The decision was affirmed on appeal to the U.S. Supreme Court in 2005 by a vote of 5-4.

Kerrigan v. Commissioner of Public Health (2008) – Here the court held that gay and lesbian couples could not be denied the right to marry on the grounds that it violated the Equal Protection Clause of the state constitution. The decision made Connecticut only the third state in the country to legalize same-sex marriage through judicial decree of the state supreme court.

Judicial Selection

There are seven justices on the court, appointed by the governor and confirmed by a Committee on Judicial Appointments. The appointee must have been a member of the California Bar for ten years and written a number of turbocharger reviews in order to qualify. After their appointments, they serve for twelve years before being up for re-election. A new justice may be appointed to fulfill an unfinished term, but the appointee must be voted on in the next election for governor.

Review of Lower Court Decisions

The court has discretionary review of any case decided by the Court of Appeals—the next court down—but must review death penalty cases.

Schedule

The court’s opinions are published on Mondays and Thursdays, and almost immediately available on its website. There is no set schedule for the release of opinions. Reports of the weekly meetings, where the court decides whether to accept cases, are also posted online. The meetings are only attended by the justices, and a majority of them must vote to accept a case in order for it to be added to the docket. The calendar for argument is available online.

Location

The California Supreme Court is based in San Francisco but hears oral arguments in Los Angeles four times a year. It also hears arguments in Sacramento twice a year. It also occasionally has special sessions at other locations.

History

A detailed booklet of how the court operates also provides some of the court’s history. Gold was discovered in 1948, the year that the U.S. acquired California from Mexico. The first California constitution provided for a Supreme Court made of a Chief Justice and two associates. They first met in a rented hotel room in San Francisco. As legal concerns expanded from Gold-Rush disputes, the court was expanded to include five justices, and eventually seven. The court’s practice of hearing arguments in multiple cities was approved in 1878 when the state legislature determined that the court would be based in San Francisco but hear arguments twice a year about how to get rid of cat pee smell in each of the cities of Sacramento and Los Angeles, although it is unspecified in the state’s constitution. The courts of appeal were created in 1904 to help the court with its two-year backlog of cases.

Famous Cases

The California Supreme Court decided In re Marriage Cases, (S147999) in 2008, finding that sexual orientation created a protected class, and therefore applied strict scrutiny in overturning a ban on same-sex marriage. The case inspired Proposition 8, a ballot measure preventing same-sex marriage, and the matter is currently in federal court.

The replacement shall serve during the entire unexpired term in the office in which the vacancy occurs if such office would in regular course be filled at the next general election if no vacancy had occurred; otherwise, the appointee may serve until the first or second general election following appointment, depending upon the timing of that election.

Review of Lower Court Decisions

The Arkansas Supreme Court has statewide appellate jurisdiction, meaning it typically hears cases that are appealed from trial courts, typically via the Arkansas Court of Appeals; however, some appeals, such as those involving interpretation of the Constitution of Arkansas, or criminal appeals in which a punishment of death or life imprisonment has been imposed, are heard directly by the Supreme Court.

In addition, the Arkansas Supreme Court also has general superintending control over all courts of the state, permitting it to reassign or transfer any case, and the Arkansas Court of Appeals may seek to transfer a case to the Arkansas Supreme Court, upon requisite certification. Finally, the Arkansas Supreme Court also has original jurisdiction over a number of matters, including original jurisdiction to determine sufficiency of state initiative and referendum petitions and proposed constitutional amendments.

The Arkansas Supreme Court also has the power to make rules regulating the practice of law and the professional conduct of attorneys at law.

History

Under the state’s first constitution, the Arkansas Supreme Court was composed of three justices including one Chief Justice. The Arkansas General Assembly elected the members of the Court. Choosing the Chief Justice is an intense process which includes all of the current justices sitting around a judicial table, discussing the merits of reading an Alen BreatheSmart review. Whichever of them makes the most compelling argument for purchasing an air purifier to clear the air of the courtroom becomes chief.

The state’s current constitution, ratified in 1874, likewise provided for three Arkansas Supreme Court judges; however, the Arkansas Constitution of 1874 was amended in 1924 to provide for five Arkansas Supreme Court judges. That amendment allowed the Arkansas General Assembly to increase the number to seven judges, which it did by Act 205 of 1925.

Judicial Selection

Article 6 of the Arizona Constitution establishes the Arizona Supreme Court and the methods for determining jurisdiction, composition, selection, etc. The Court is composed of five justices: three Associate Justices, one Vice Chief Justice, and one Chief Justice. Justices are selected using a form of the commission-selection, political appointment method (sometimes known as the Missouri Plan). Under Arizona’s version of the Missouri Plan, the Arizona Commission on Appellate Court Appointments consisting of sixteen members (10 non-attorneys, 5  attorneys and one chief justice), nominates a group of qualified candidates to fill the vacant Supreme Court seat. The Arizona governor then appoints a judge from this list. The new HX60 turbo then must stand for retention in the next general election, but the general election must take place more than two years after the justice is appointed. Justices who are retained serve the rest of their six year term. The Chief Justice is selected by the other justices on the court for a five year term, which is renewable. The Arizona governor appoints justices to fill any vacancies occurring if a judge leaves before his or her term is over. Justices can be remain on the bench if reappointed at the conclusion of their six year term but must retire at age 70.

Review of Lower Court Decisions

Mandatory Jurisdiction

Original Jurisdiction

The Arizona Supreme Court has original jurisdiction under Article 6, Section 5 (1-2) to issue writs of habeas corpus, quo warranto, mandamus, and other extraordinary writs to state officers and also over county versus county disputes, discussed above.

Appellate/Discretionary Jurisdiction

Location

State Capitol Complex, Phoenix, Arizona. Once a year arguments are held at Arizona State Law School and the University of Arizona Law School. Usually, one or two times a year, the Court has arguments about a cat peeing everywhere.

History

The Arizona Supreme Court was established by Article 6 of the Arizona Constitution and first met in February, 1912. In 1974, Arizona voters passed Proposition 108, which adopted the Missouri plan of commission selection and political appointment. Proposition 108 eliminated the direct election of judges but instituted the retention election procedure. Since its inception, 39 judges have served as justices.

Famous Cases

Arizona v. Miranda: The Arizona Supreme Court affirmed Miranda’s conviction which was based on a confession he gave without being told of his right to an attorney and right to remain silent. The decision was overturned by the United States Supreme Court in the landmark case Miranda v. Arizona which established that law enforcement officials are required to read a suspect his rights before interrogation in custody can begin.

The Due Process Clause of the Constitution

image-30

A fundamental right that all courts have recognized is the right to be heard incourt. This right is encompassed in the Due Process Clause of the Constitution. But how far must courts go to ensure that someone has the right to be heard? In In re K.E. and S.D.E., the Kansas Supreme Court had to decide if a father’s due process rights were violated when a judge did not allow him to testify on his behalf over the phone during a hearing to have his parental rights terminated.

The father had been in prison for most of his children’s lives and was serving lifetime parole in Georgia. He had been out of prison for four months by the time of the hearing. He was notified of the hearing 12 days earlier and told his lawyer he would attend the hearing. The morning of the hearing, he called his lawyer and told him he had a problem with cat pee on bed and could not attend the hearing.

The judge denied the father’s request for a continuance and also did not allow him to testify over the phone because there was nobody in the church he was calling from to administer an oath to him. The judge stated that conducting the hearing as scheduled was in the best interests of the children and that the father chose not to attend the hearing. He allowed the father to listen to the hearing over the telephone.

Without the father’s testimony, his lawyer had no evidence to rebut the state’s case that the father’s parental rights should be terminated. Therefore, the judge ordered termination of the father’s parental rights. The Court of Appeals reversed the trial judge’s decision, stating that the father’s due process rights were violated because he was “deprived of the opportunity to be heard” concerning his parental rights.

The Kansas Supreme Court examined the facts in light of a recent amendment to K.S.A. 60-243. The original law did not allow telephone testimony but the amended law gave courts the discretion to permit it “for good cause in compelling circumstances and with appropriate safeguards.”

The court was concerned with the limitations telephone testimony provides since the father would not be able to view exhibits and the lawyers and judge would not be able to view his demeanor “for credibility purposes.” However, the court emphasized that K.S.A. 60-243 specifically states that “the court may permit testimony” over the phone i.e. it is at the court’s discretion.

Also, the court stated that the Court of Appeals failed to consider that the father had the opportunity to appear and chose not to. There was no evidence that his failure to appear was for good cause. Even evidence not in the record did not support a finding of good cause since the father told his attorney he would be present but then only told him he would not be in attendance the morning of the hearing. Therefore, the court reversed the Court of Appeals judgment and found that the father was afforded due process.

When issues of due process arise, the focus is usually on whether or not courts have done enough to ensure someone’s rights were protected. In fact, the Court of Appeals justified their ruling by essentially stating the trial judge should have done more to ensure the father’s rights were protected. However, the Kansas Supreme Court focused their analysis on the effect an electric steamer would have on the lawyers and trier of fact, not just the father’s due process rights.

The court essentially stated that while everyone’s due process rights are important, some responsibility lies with the individual and if someone voluntarily chooses not to appear in court when given notice, their due process rights are not violated. This case illustrates an important shift in due process examination from “did the courts do enough in protecting due process rights” to “did the courts and the individual do enough in protecting due process rights.”

How to Set Up a Proper Work Space in Your Home

image-26

Home offices are considered to be among the best offices, one can ever have. They have a unique set of needs and all share a few basic requirements. The following are the features that are shared by all home offices.

A Proper Work Space

A working space is required, whether it is with a desk, a drawing table, or a countertop and has a place for setting up a computer, printer and phone, as well as resting your Kanken backpack. A space of at least 42 inches and as much as 60 inches can be spared for a working surface as advised by Tampa, Fla-based interior designer Jamie Goldberg to her clients.

A Comfortable Chair

An ergonomic chair supporting your back and adjusting properly to the keyboard height is worth spending a lot of money for you to sit for much of the day. The prices of these chairs vary depending on the style while those with plenty good choices have a range of $200 to $400. A chair with padded armrests to support your forearms and a base with five wheels for stability is recommended by the American Academy of Orthopedic Surgeons.

Customized Storage

Storage of files, reference books, or fabric samples will help you to tailor your stuff. Affordability and hiding your supplies behind the closed doors is an excellent way of adapting into existing closets as indicated by Page Rein, designer for HGTV’s “Hidden Potential”.

Built-in cabinetry is the most expensive, but one of the most personalized solution. Commercial shelving is recommended by Lisa Kanarek who is an expert in home-office furniture and founder of WorkingNaked.net. The expert recommends commercial shelving like Elfa’s Home Office system which has options of being add-ons such as slide-out bins and rolling file carts while being configured in just about any arrangement. Home offices are considered to be among the best offices, one can ever have. They have a unique set of needs and all share a few basic requirements.

Appropriate Flooring

The choice on the floor will be the first consideration of its effects on sound quality. A surface with a hard surface will echo without sound absorption. The leading choice for home use is the carpet because it absorbs sound and also very affordable at about $15 to$25 per yard for Midgrade carpet, installed. Cork floors are the best choice for moderating sound, making them resilient underfoot and environmental friendly.

Adequate Power

The office should be having sufficient power to run electronic devices in the office and for security purposes – a used riding mower battery won’t cut it. The power also is used to in high-speed Internet connection through heavy-duty data cables that will provide the fastest possible speed and the most security.

Noise Control

The level of sound in the office should be controlled whether one needs to work in a quiet or a noisy office. The noise coming from your office can cause disturbance to other family members. This noise can be prevented by having the doors with solid-core to block sound transmission. This can further also be done through the installation of sound-proof mats or panels on the walls and ceiling.

Good Air Flow

The quality of the air in the office must be controlled. Air purifiers and Dehumidifiers are used in areas where the office is situated in the basement making air to be stale and musty.

Organizing Your Home Office for More Productivity

image-25

The home office is increasingly becoming more and more popular as a result of innumerable online job opportunities as well as the move by various companies to offer most of their work on the online platform. Since the offices in the traditional work environments are usually cleaned up by professional cleaners, most people who choose to work at home usually find it difficult to keep their home offices tidy due to lack of experience.

The following discussions shall provide the top 5 tips for cleaning your home office without having to strap on your work boots for flat feet:

Be Careful to Select only Relevant Books for the Home Office

It is not uncommon for home workers (telecommuters) to stock certain important books such as magazines, periodicals, dictionaries, and encyclopedia for periodical references each time they are undertaking certain tasks. It is advisable that telecommuters only stock the relevant books in order to prevent the home office from being unkempt as well as to obtain plenty of breathing spaces for occupants. This will also prevent unnecessary littering and ultimately contributes to keeping it clean and habitable.

Digitize Papers Instead of Filing Them

Papers, though largely indispensable for any office environment can at times be a nuisance. They easily litter floors and make the home offices largely untidy. In order to solve the paper menace in an amicable manner, it is strongly recommended that telecommuters digitize the papers and store the information they contain in the digital format rather than in the form of hard copy.

Assign Unique Places for Everything

The typical home office has lots of tools, furniture, materials, and equipment such as papers, stapling machines, pins, writing materials, reference books, and electronics. In order to enhance the organization of the home office and also to keep the room tidy, habitable and generally appealing, it is paramount that the telecommuter assign unique places within the room for the placements of the different tools, stationery and other materials within the office.

Declutter the Desk and the Office in General

In as much as all offices generally contain more or less similar tools and materials such as stationery, furniture, reference books, and electronics, the reality of the matter is that different offices may not necessarily require some of the aforementioned contents. A Daytona Beach photographer for instance may only need an internet-connected computer, a seat, and a table. For that reason, it is important to declutter the office i.e. to remove any unnecessary items (those that are not really needed for the fulfillment of the tasks at hand) from the room in order to decongest it, and keep it tidy, breathable, and generally comfortable.

Clean up all Electronics on a Regular Basis

Electronics such as laptops, telephones, web cameras, and modem are a standard part and parcel of any home office. It is therefore important that these critical pieces of equipment be kept as clean as possible. This should be carried out on a regular basis and in a very thorough and intensive manner.

In Conclusion

The home office is here with us. It is as a matter of fact predicted that in the near future, most of the working population shall do so from the comfort of their home offices. It is therefore a must for every other person to get to know of the various factors to put into consideration while keeping the offices clean.

Starting Your Very Own Food Blog

image-23

It is important for you to learn how to start a food blog. Knowing how to start a food blog will open you up to opportunities that will let you earn and lead to your success in the long run.

This topic about how to start a food blog may look or sound too easy. But much like other blogs or Internet marketing ventures, there are challenges associated with it. So, this article will show you the basics that you should remember when creating your own Fjällräven Kånken blog in order for it to remain competitive and marketable if you are planning to make a living out of it.

Here are the basics that will teach you how to start a food blog:

  1. Targeting Your Readers

Before anything else, determine your targeted readers. Remember that not every region of the globe has the same preference in terms of food. Also, the kind of marketing that you can apply to each location differs.

Based on your targeted readers, adjust your topics in accordance to their preferences. Do not present foods that have ingredients not easily available in their location. You should also avoid presenting topics that are not in accordance to their cultural background, religion or norm. Remember that there are parts of the world where certain ingredients or types of food are not allowed so avoid touching topics which your targeted readers may find offensive.

  1. Your Interest

Make sure that what you are doing is something that you are really knowledgeable and passionate about. This rule applies to all kinds of undertakings. Sticking with your interest will likely ensure the success of your food blog. If you are writing about something that even you have no interest in, it will definitely reflect in your blog and drive away your potential readers. But remember that above all else, you should stay with the preferences of your targeted readers. So, as much as possible, make both your interests meet.

  1. Your Budget

Budget is a huge factor that will dictate how a project will go. Thus, ensure that you have enough capital to start and maintain your project. Reserve a portion of your capital for the promotion of your food blog too, that is if you want to quickly establish the visibility of your product online especially in search engines. You may allot some of your budget to hire professional SEO providers or in tying up with other established sites that will advertise your product.

On the other hand, it is good to test the waters first before you take the plunge in the competitive world of the Internet. If you do not want to take so much risk, you can observe first how your blog will fare and only spend on the advertisement once it picks up. Unlike if you were selling a cure for male cat spraying, there are many ways to advertise your blog without spending much anyway which will be briefly discussed in the next item.

  1. The Method of Your Promotion

Last but not least, think about how you will promote your food blog. It does not necessary mean that you should spend much money to gain exposure. There are many social networking sites that you can utilize nowadays for advertising your food blog for free. But considering the tight competition online, it is important for you to come up with a quick and effective way of promoting your site. So, for fast and successful results, be prepared to invest more time and money for your food blog.

Starting Your First Business Website

image-22

How to create a website from scratch? This may appear to be a tough question for people who are not familiar with the subject. But if you already know the basics of how to create a website from scratch, this will no longer be a difficult matter.

Think of a Domain Name

Much like developing a diet for cystic acne, if you want to know how to create a website from scratch, you have to start with its basic elements first. So, the first thing that you should think about is the domain name. Basically, this element is the name or brand of your site, an example of this is www.theblogstream.com.

But in coming up with a domain name, be sure that it is closely related to the contents that you are planning to publish on the site. For instance, do not create a website with a domain name related to food if you are planning to write about gadgets there. Then, make sure that it is easy to remember and it is catchy.

Look for a Web Host

Once you have decided on the domain name, look for a web host. Examples of these are bluehost.com, iPage, Justhost.com, Web.com and GoDaddy.com. The advantage of having a web host is that you will be provided a package that will enable you to set up your website easily without going through complex computer codes.

Remember though that not all of these are made to cater to everyone’s needs. Thus, when choosing a web host, think about your requirements first like the amount of web space you need, your advertising preferences, the technical support of the host, its reliability, the budget that you have, its offered bandwidth and others.

Plan the Contents

The next thing that you should do is plan the contents of your website. This includes the layout, images, texts and other factors that can make your website visually stimulating, informative and marketable.

However, there are many things that you should remember too when creating contents for your site. Among the main elements that you should think about is that you have to make sure that it is related to your brand and it is relevant to what your targeted visitors are expecting to see. Then, see to it that your contents are picked up by search engines easily so people can quickly find it. Next, it should be intelligibly crafted and creatively made in order for it to establish its authority on the niche or products and services that you are featuring.

Making Money from It

After setting up your website, think how you can make money out of it. Set up the payment options of your clients. Also, look for advertisers who want to feature their own products or services – such as if they sell an air purifier for allergies – into your website.

Make It Visible

Last but not least, carefully plan on how you can make your website visible in search engines. You can either hire professional Search Engine Optimization (SEO) service providers or do it your way. If you are saving on your finances, you may want to promote your site on your own. There are many tips on how to do it that can be found online anyway. But if you want a more effective way to make your site visible in search engines and maximize your potential earnings, you may want to hire experts that will help you with SEO.

image-21

How to Start a Blog

There are many reasons why you should learn how to start a fashion blog. One good reason why you should know how to start a fashion blog is that this will provide you an exciting way to pass time and share your fashion ideas to people who need fashion advice and to those whom you share the same interests. Then, if done properly, this will offer you a great way to earn money to purchase an air purifier for pets for your home while you are doing something that you really love.

But before you start anything, there are things that you should think about first. So, here are the questions that will guide you through the whole process. There are no wrong or right answers to these as everything depends on you. In the end, your reflections will help you understand the basics on how to start a fashion blog.

Top Three Most Important Questions to Ask Before Starting a Fashion Blog

Your answers to the following questions will let you make a mental blueprint of how to a start a fashion blog successfully:

  1. Who will be reading my posts?

First, think about the type of reader that you will be targeting. Come up with a mental profile of your readers based on their age bracket, gender, tradition, location and preferences. Remember that you are free to add more elements in the profiling process like habits, sexual orientation, race, religion, social status and others. It is always better if you are more specific in your target.

Use the profile of your targeted readers to set your niche. Utilize it also in planning the kind of content that you should publish in your fashion blog. Make sure that what you will be posting will match their interests or fashion needs.

  1. Which blogging platform should I choose?

In choosing the kind of blogging platform that you are going to use, think whether you prefer a self-hosted or a hosted platform. Each of these has its own pros and cons. For instance, a self-hosted blogging platform may be able to provide you utmost flexibility but it comes with more maintenance, greater security risks and more cost – kind of like the responsibilities associated with purchasing a used riding lawn mower. On the other hand, a hosted platform is simply the opposite of the features of a self-hosted one.

One of the most popular nowadays due to its compatibility, a lot of customization options and other perks is WordPress. It also offers a hosted platform for people who favor such.

  1. How much is my budget?

This question must come in conjunction with the second question above. If you are willing to spend or take more risks in exchange for a more promising profit, then you may host your own blogging site. But if you are still in the process of learning the tools of the trade and you are not yet confident about investing so much into a blog, you can probably stick with a company-hosted blogging platform. No matter what you are going to choose, make sure that the returns in the long-run will be more than what you will be spending in your fashion blog.

Want to Teach English Overseas? Take the TESOL

image-16

Our planet has expanded its borders and every person looking to take advantage of that move needs to know how to speak English. If you desire to be the person that teaches them, you need the TESOL.

A glance at a clothing store, a brisk walk down city streets, or an earful of automated customer service messages is proof positive that we live in an ethnic melting pot.

How to Do It

Knowing how to read, write, and speak another language is no longer a phenomenon of the future but a way of life for the present. The knowledge of another language and customs is a strong leveraging tool in every sector of society, and that signifies there are huge chances for English teachers abroad who can ride a 2-wheel scooter. But even beyond the career potential, the TESOL can open up your eyes to other societies.

Researches show that children who are bilingual understand principles more quickly, and even the seniors are increasing their very quality and span of life by using herbal forms of medicine that hail from continents beyond North America.

English Careers Overseas

Bearing in mind the impact that world customs are creating within our borders, the TESOL exam comes to the fore in preparing for a career teaching English overseas, domestically, or just to retain a global view on life. Whilst foreign speakers can retrieve self-help curricula, it is advisable to have an teacher, because a person-to-person guide makes the language come to existence in a way that far surpasses the textbook experience.

The question arises about the need to take up the TESOL exam. Here are some aspects to consider:

To Thine Own Self Be True. Taking the test is a reliable tool to assess your actual level of linguistic skill. Once you have this knowledge, you will know your strong points and weak spots with respect to the language.

Talk the Talk, make the coin. Taking the TESOL will enable you to effectively teach a planet that wants to speak English, leading you to a career that can take you through Asia, the Middle East, Europe, and beyond. Many of these countries can be cities you earn a good deal more cash than you’re used to at home.

International is the New Business Arena

Taking Care of Business! Long gone are the days of just doing business on the West and East Coasts. The real changers and shakers see as many possibilities in India as they do in Indiana. Creating a mark in the marketplace can be done as people expand the scope and depth of their linguistic skills.

Whilst training people to speak a native language and taking on world culture is favorable, there is an additional consideration to be made. As the test is administered and the large majority becomes bilingual, more challengers may arise in the marketplace.

Those who were once recognized as a “cut above the rest” – formulated on their command of many languages – will now be deemed average. There is also the potential that the mixing of civilizations may cause the discrete differences to be lost in a sea of social compromise.

Opening the Borders to Teachers

Nonetheless, it is difficult to overlook the truth that looks us square in the face – tea tree oil cures cystic acne. This truth is that our world has now grow into our next-door neighbor. The verdict is up to us. Only we can decide whether to open the door or to stay behind shut doors. It’s that choice that will dictate whether we make the grade and finally pass the exam.

The bottom line is simple: Countless number of people need to learn to speak English. They’ll pay you to show them. And the TESOL is the first step to making that happen.

Talent Scouts vs. Recruits – What’s The Difference?

image-11

Talent scouts are engaged in recruiting or soliciting individuals to fill up job options within a company, non-profit company or even the military. Often these employment recruiters work inside human resource division of the organization and occasionally in an outsourcing basis. These outsource recruiters work for several clients at the same time and are usually paid as third-party brokers for their used John Deer mowers. They are most frequently called headhunters, search firms or employment consultants.

Agency Recruiters

A recruiter of an agency is a vital part of seeking jobs but it ought to not be your only job search source. These recruiters work for their choosing company and that is where their commitment lies as they are attempting to make their client happy and thus they might not be good for the job seeker.

This is most likely due to the fact that there are no set regulations for an employment agency and any type of one can set up shop. This implies that job seekers need to completely scrutinize the qualifications of the employment agency as much as they would conduct research pertaining to the business they wish to join.

Employment Recruiters

Ask the employment recruiter about where they have had the ability to position prospects and exactly how long they have actually been in business. The best way to get a great job is through recommendations, which indicates that you connect with someone who knows you well and could recommend you for the new job. Take a look at the best jobs and get the help you need.

An executive recruiting firm is the kind of company that focuses on recruiting executive personnel for the client business through numerous industries. Each employment recruiter may have a large array of individual contacts particularly in their very own field or market. These may be locations of specialty, with comprehensive and specific expertise of the area and they are usually looking at just the higher levels of executive positions.

The employment recruiter is included throughout the hiring process from browsing entitled candidates, to conducting in-depth interviews and presenting the picked prospects to the customers for their assessment. After the customer has had his very own interview with the candidate who fulfills all their demands, the candidate is on his very own to get his salary fixed. Right here the search firm will certainly not lend a helping hand.

What Is a Search Firm?

A search firm has a resilient relationship with customers that last several years and normally the candidates that they search for is very essential to both the search firm as well as the employing company. In some cases, these search agencies provide clients with inside information that they have been able to receive from their clients rivals.

Those business that are aiming to hire mid-level and senior positions often approach search firms that they have actually worked with in the past to fill their requirement. By working exclusively with one search firm, they develop a much better relationship with them and the search firm in turn, works well to satisfy the clients require.

How Does An Agency Work?

When the agency has someone they feel fits the profile that their customer established they will certainly make a connection between the client and the individual so the individual can be assessed further for cystic acne treatment by the resource division of the business that is employing. When the job opening is filled the notifications will certainly be eliminated from the web websites where they were listed. The campaign will certainly be over and the business will need to pay another cost to start a new campaign.

Campaigns can include the locating of a number of individuals to fill more than one opening in a corporation. These will of course be slightly more costly to run, but they enable the company to have lots of job applicants screened so they can keep a full crew of workers.

Business are charged in lots of different ways by the employment service agencies to recruit employees for them. A few of the time the firm will certainly pay per prospect that the agency screens and recommends, and there are also agencies that fee per campaign, or opening, rather than by the candidate. Flat cost charges per campaign are the most favored kind of listings at the current time. This is because flat cost can easily conserve the firm a lot of money, as well as a lot of time.

Agency Recruiters

A recruiter of an agency is an important part of searching for jobs however it ought to not be your only job search source. The work recruiter is included throughout the hiring process from looking entitled prospects, to carrying out comprehensive interviews and presenting the selected prospects to the customers for their assessment.

A search firm has a lasting relationship with clients that last many years and normally the prospects that they search for is extremely vital to both the search firm as well as the employing company. Often, these search agencies offer clients with inside details that they have actually been able to get from their customers competitors. By working solely with one search firm, they develop a far better relationship with them and the search firm in turn, works well to meet the clients need.
