Need A Michigan Lawyer?

Being a Michigan lawyer can be an incredibly lucrative occupation. Michigan, after all, is one of the most litigious states in the country. It seems as if every physician, property owner, business owner, oh heck everyone has to occasionally obtain the services of a Michigan lawyer.

And this is of course a wonderful nose for those of us who are attorneys. You see, at a time when, because of the large number of new law school grads, lawyers across the country are finding themselves out of work, a Michigan lawyer like myself finds a higher level of job security. I am happy to report that I’m making a very substantial living practicing law at this time and there are no signs of it abating anytime soon.

Of course, this isn’t just a matter of being in the right place at the right time. Of course being a Michigan lawyer is a case of being in the right place at the right time, but really in this business, but the truth is you have to be confident and well-known before you can take advantage of it. I have been involved in a wide range of legal fields, and have met great success in all of them. I have served as a clerk for several judges, and I have also had a hand and offering some of the most well-known decisions handed down. I have been involved, as an attorney, in divorce law, inheritance, personal injury, malpractice, and real estate. I also served as a prosecutor when I graduated from law school. I’m not the only Michigan lawyer, and it is only because of my hard work that I am one of the most successful of them.

It helps a great deal to work for a reputable law firm as far as exposure is concerned. I work at one of the most respected law firms in the state, and have for ten years. I always had the fortune of having a good reputation, but I had to begin somewhere just like you White House so my start came when I began to work at Levin and Schlitz. Inexperienced, at least, in comparison to my current level of success. Because of my background, and having the requisite skills and knowledge, engendered trust with my partners enough so that I was able to represent their firm and that has earned me quite a bit of respect in the legal community. To make it as a Michigan lawyer is something many can do, but to obtain true respect amongst your peers demands both talent and the right connections.

Activities For Home School Programs – Astronomy on a Budget

In ancient times, the sky was looked upon as something mystical and mythical, as if it had a message for the human race. The invention of the telescope revealed how vast and amazing the sky is. There is lot more to learn, and much of what lies beyond our atmosphere is still a mystery. In home school programs that I design, I always teach how the sky actually tells us lots of things. In today’s activity I will teach you some binocular basics and the basics of telling the time by looking at the stars.

Being a junior astronomer is not at all that expensive. Imagine just lying down on your lawn and gazing at the stars. Costs nothing! But let me warn you …star gazing can get addictive! At least history tells of men who have spent their entire lives studying the stars.

Home school programs can ideally teach you about stars from the comfort of your home. Once you get interested in stars, you will be filled with tons of questions. Why do stars twinkle? Why do they move? What are they made of? How far are they? How big are they?

Visiting your local library or telling your parents to take you to the local astronomy club becomes a must. You are amazed at the telescopes and want to rent a portable one. But then you dream of having your own telescope and lie on your lawn with cookies and cocoa and enjoy all the wonders in the sky.

For home school programs I recommend a pair of hand held binoculars with a 50mm lens and a 7mm exit pupil. The main lenses collect light rays and the exit pupil allows just the right amount of light to pass through. Choose a pair of binoculars with a magnification of 10x and not more. A higher magnification will, no doubt, produce a better resolution, but a slight shake of the hand, and you will lose the star you are looking at.

You can buy a good 10 x 50mm pair or a 7 x 50mm pair for as little as $100. A tripod and a L-adaptor would be great accessories to go in for.

Telling the Time by Looking at the Stars

To tell the time, you must first find Polaris, which is also called the North Star or the Pole Star. Polaris is a bright star that appears to be stationary while the other stars appear to move. Some people prefer to first find the Big Dipper, which is a constellation that outlines a dipper or a bowl with a handle. There are two stars on the side of the bowl opposite to the handle and they are called Dubhe and Merak. When you connect these stars with an imaginary line and extend the length of the line 5 times upwards, you will find Polaris.

Now imagine a round clock with the Polaris at the center.The imaginary line is the hour hand of your star clock (no minute hand). You will notice that this hour hand (and the Big Dipper) moves around the Polaris in a complete circle. So your imaginary hour hand will move around the Polaris just like the hand of a clock. The only difference is that it will move counterclockwise, and therefore you will have to imagine the clock as a mirror image of your kitchen clock. This means that 12 will be in the same place, but 1 will be in place of 11, 2 will be in place of ten, 3 will be in place of 9, and so on.

Depending on where you live, on the midnight of March 1, you will find that your imaginary hour hand points to 12. Now when the hour hand moves to 1 (normally 11) it will be 2 am in the morning. You must count two hours for every 5 minute mark. When the hour hand is at 3 (normally 9), the time is 2 times 3, that is 6 in the morning. This will give you a fair idea about how our ancestors told the time by looking at the skies.

You can buy a ready-made star clock at an Astronomy store. By turning the paper dial to match the exact position of the Big Dipper, you will be able to tell the time.

Where Did Our Business Laws and Regulations Come From – How Have They Changed?

The Business Laws in our nation and our regulations have become so complex they seem to be choking the viability of not only our court system, but also adding layers of laws to companies to the point of suffocation.

The bureaucracy is not only in government, but it has reached all levels of business small, medium and large. Of course, some rules of the game are needed to help our economic machine with standardization.

But, with all the case law, written laws and lawsuits, the laws no longer serve the purpose of allowing business to know in advance what to expect or give them adequate measure to dictate policies within their companies.

One thing that I have noticed is that if you pick up an old business law book prior to 1940, well, there is no much in it. It’s pretty simple and down to earth. When reading through the chapters you’ll find that it all makes sense, it’s all traceable and you can find meaning.

Today things are much different. I would advise any MBA student or individual looking to get into business law to read old business law books and text books. In fact, let me recommend a very good one to you that I have in my own personal library:

“A Text Book of Law and Business” by William H. Spencer; McGraw-Hill Book Company Incorporated; New York, NY; 1938.

If you ever find yourself asking the questions; 1.) Where Did Our Business Laws and Regulations Come From or; 2.) How Have Our Business Laws Changed Over the Years? Then just reading through this work will shed some light on the subject. So, think on it.

How A Good Bankruptcy Lawyer Can Help You

Bankruptcy laws are extremely complicated and nearly impossible for the average person to understand. With the new bankruptcy laws that have been recently put into action, the laws have become even more complicated. This is why it is important to hire a bankruptcy lawyer if you are considering filing bankruptcy. He or she can help you choose the right chapter of bankruptcy for you.

A bankruptcy lawyer specializes in the laws as they pertain to filing bankruptcy. However, not every lawyer is versed in the laws of your particular state. That is why it is very important to go with a local lawyer who is familiar with the bankruptcy laws of your state. The laws can be considerably different from one state to another. So make sure that the lawyer you choose not only has experience working in your state, but is licensed to work with cases in your state as well.

When choosing a bankruptcy lawyer it is important that you feel comfortable working with him or her. Filing bankruptcy is a very emotional and life changing experience. Therefore, you will want a lawyer that understands what you are going through. An experienced bankruptcy lawyer will know exactly how to handle any of your concerns or fears. One of the best ways to get a feel for your lawyer is to interview him or her. Be sure to ask plenty of questions so that you have a complete understanding where he or she stands on certain matters. Also, be sure to ask what their success rate is and if he or she has handled cases similar to yours before.

When filing bankruptcy, your budget will be a key element. Therefore, you will want to make sure you have a full understanding of any and all fees your lawyer will be charging. Generally speaking, a bankruptcy lawyer charges a sizable fee for his or her services. You will be responsible for paying for the actual bankruptcy, which varies depending on what type you file for. Chapter 7 bankruptcy runs around $300. Then, your lawyer will charge approximately $1000 to $2000. If the fee is too high, you will want to consider another lawyer. But keep in mind that legal services are going to cost something, and it may be to your advantage to pay a bit more for an excellent lawyer, rather than paying much less for a bankruptcy lawyer with far less experience.

Picking a reputable bankruptcy lawyer is crucial to the outcome of your case. Therefore, you do not want to choose a lawyer at random. Picking a lawyer blindly out of the phone book could have a negative impact on the overall outcome. When choosing a lawyer, ask family and friends for recommendations. Although they may not have personally filed bankruptcy, they may have another friend who can recommend someone. So be sure to ask around. If you cannot find a personal recommendation, you can check with the Better Business Bureau to see if they have had any negative feedback on a lawyer you are considering.

Do not pick out a bankruptcy lawyer at the last minute. Be sure to do some advance planning and research. Otherwise, if you pick a lawyer at the last minute you could end up with a lawyer who is not experienced in the area you need or whom you do not feel comfortable working with.

No one likes to admit that they need help. However, when filing bankruptcy it is essential that you work with a lawyer who specializes in the field of bankruptcy. He or she can help make the overall process a lot smoother and easier. With the laws that are in place today, it is vital that you have an experienced lawyer who has a full understanding of the laws and can help you through the bankruptcy process.

What makes the ITT Tech School of Criminal Justice Unique

A number of reasons make the ITT Tech school of criminal justice unique from other online programs. According to ITT Tech their programs are different from other online programs mainly because their programs are not completely self-guided. Instead ITT Tech lays down a firm schedule for students so that students are involved in regular courses of set duration with specific assignments and due dates.

There are other reasons why ITT Tech school of criminal justice is unique. ITT Tech is perhaps the only technical institution that offers a criminal justice program. While its technical programs are somewhat accepted, its criminal justice program has come under criminal investigation by the US Justice Department. Although the Justice Department has admitted in June 2005 that so far they have not come across any incriminating evidence, they are still investigating some of the local schools and campuses of ITT Tech which has some 80 schools spread across 30 states of the United States. Incidentally, ITT Tech has also come under investigation by the Securities Exchange Commision but again they have come out unscathed with no fines or penalties being imposed on them. But the very fact that it has come under such investigations makes it unique among educational institutions.

ITT Tech school of criminal justice is also unique that although it is a large and reputed school and a fairly old one being established in 1969, it has still chosen not to get accredtation from any of the eight RA accreditation bodies. Instead, it is accredited by the Accrediting Council for Independent Colleges and Schools (ACICS). Although ACICS is registered with the US Department of Education as such registration is manadatory, RA accredited colleges and many employers do not accept ACICS accreditation. Hence, many RA accredited schools may refuse transfer of credits earned at ITT Tech school of criminal justice. Similarly, degrees earned from ITT Tech school of criminal justice may not be enough or adequate for getting jobs in various law enforcement areas at the local, state or federal level.

On the positive side, ITT Tech school of criminal justice is unique in that it is one of the very few schools offering a bachelor level degree in cyber security which is a very contemporary subject and has good demand in both public and private sectors.
