Fortunately for legal researchers, countless developers interested in making legal research more convenient and hassle free have launched applications that contain credible information”

— Todd Wallace, attorney in New Orleans, Louisiana

NEW ORLEANS, LOUISIANA, UNITED STATES, January 15, 2019 /EINPresswire.com/ — In his newest article, Louisiana lawyer Todd Wallace provides an overview of online research for business legal issues. The complete article is available on the blog of Mr. Wallace at https://ktoddwallaceblog.blogspot.com/

Doing research is always an extremely difficult and time consuming process. Not only must one double check facts and figures from a number of different sources, but it’s imperative for you to also ensure that your sources are credible and that you do not support misinformation or flimsy entities through your research. This is particularly true when undertaking your legal research online.

The creation and widespread use of the internet has made research far easier and more efficient than it was in the past with all sorts of information available at the click of a button, most people forget the fact that this convenience also comes with a price to pay.

While the internet has contributed immensely to the availability and accessibility of information, it goes without saying that there’s a lot that needs to be taken into consideration when it comes to conducting research on the internet. Not only does credibility remain a major issue when conducting research on the internet, but the intrinsic sensitive nature of legal research worsens the problem tenfold. Moreover, with novices claiming to be professionals and uploading researches and creating legal blogs full of misinformation, conducting legal research over the internet can be quite a hassle for a variety of reasons.

With that said, however, disregarding the importance and value of a source of information as vast and grand as the internet simply because of fraudsters and credibility issues is the wrong approach and should be avoided. Instead, it is imperative for researchers to exercise due diligence when conducting research over the internet to ensure that they can benefit from the platform without worrying about being duped.

Additionally, since most people are worried about legal research costing an arm and a leg, it’s still possible for people to conduct research on legal matters using the internet – all of that free of charge.
Interested in learning all about how you can conduct legal research over the internet without spending a fortune? Read on to find out as we tell you all about some of the best tips and tricks that you could use to conduct legal research over the internet for free.

Start with a well-organized online library

A good starting point for any “electronic” research is a well-organized online library. For example, Georgetown University has an information website about Business Law at http://guides.ll.georgetown.edu/corporatelaw (Corporate Law Research Guide).

At that website you find further references to Business Law Resources, such as a Gateway to other libraries’ business law resources, https://www.law.georgetown.edu/library/databases/

Similarly, Cornell University has the Legal Information Institute online which offers a broad range of resources for business law at https://www.law.cornell.edu/wex/commercial_law and https://www.law.cornell.edu/wex/category/business_law.

Secondary Sources: Journal Articles

While lawyers are generally looking for primary law that includes court statuses, opinions, and regulations, it is generally easier to resort to secondary law as a starting point. This is primarily because secondary law is not only easier and far more convenient to understand, but free journal articles that essentially classify as secondary law are full of analysis and explanations to legal matters that can be difficult to understand when viewed or researched in isolation.

What’s more, certain online sources and platforms are also integrated with Google-powered search engines for you to enter appropriate keywords and browse through countless articles from numerous online journals and law reviews.

Legal Research Software and Apps

Fortunately for legal researchers, countless developers interested in making legal research more convenient and hassle free have launched applications that contain credible information making research extremely easy – that too without the risk involved. Since all information on these platforms and applications goes through intensive checks beforehand, one can easily benefit from the contents of the research without worrying about authenticity.

One thing, however, that must be taken into account is that since you have to be extremely specific about the name of the application before buying it, it is imperative for you to conduct research regarding the best applications out there. Luckily for many, since that is a common problem that researchers had to go through, certain individuals and entities have also increased the convenience of researchers in this regard and have created comprehensive lists of all of the relevant applications and resources that one can benefit from. The UCLA’s Law Library, for instance, is a comprehensive and alphabetically ordered list of law apps that users can benefit from when they are interested in conducting research without spending a fortune.

Is it real?

As mentioned above, one of the most common problems when conducting legal research online is the authenticity factor. Since the credibility of information is questionable, there are also multiple techniques through which you can retrieve background information regarding legal professionals to ensure that you don’t take home from misleading reports or articles.

If you need background information regarding any professionals in the legal world from lawyers to judges, your best bet is to resort to the LexisNexis Martindale-Hubbell Law Directory which is essentially the most traditional and trusted source for all information of this type. Additionally, you could also opt for the FindLaw Lawyer Directory and the Justia Lawyer Directory.

If you’re looking for something a little less conventional, you could also opt for the directories by Nolo and Avvo, the latter of which includes a lawyer rating system based on “a mathematical model that considers elements such as years of experience, board certification, education, disciplinary history, professional achievement, and industry recognition.” For increased credibility, the directory also allows users to put in reviews of lawyers that they have worked with to ensure that others looking for lawyers can understand exactly what they can expect and the type of cases that the lawyer has already dealt with.

For the convenience of researchers, these portals and platforms also contain a lot of additional information that you should be able to benefit from for a variety of reasons.

Court Documents

Since you might need access to dockets and could want to review case documents to extract relevant information, portals and platforms have been created to help you find exactly what you’re looking for. In addition to the Public Access to Court Electronic Records (PACER), you could also resort to RECAP, a docket site which allows you to view millions of federal dockets for bankruptcy, criminal, and civil courts of the United States – all of it free of charge.

“Memories of a Devil” Receives Rave Review from Top Literary Site

Kirkus Reviews calls Father Chester’s memoir “a remarkable combination of personal testimony and almost sociological observation.”

Kirkus Reviews calls holocaust survivor’s tale “infinitely inspiring”

Though his hardships were grotesque, his remembrance of human decency in the unlikeliest of places is infinitely inspiriting.

A cleareyed, meditative account of an unfathomable evil. ”

— Kirkus Reviews

WASHINGTON, D.C., USA, January 15, 2019 /EINPresswire.com/ — The memoir of a Jesuit priest’s journey through the prison camps of Nazi Germany during World War II received glowing praise in its first major literary review.

Kirkus Reviews lauded Father Chester Fabisiak’s recounting of his concentration camp experience in “Memories of a Devil: My Life as a Jesuit in Dachau” as a “cleareyed, meditative account of an unfathomable evil.” The review site also referred to the work as “a brave but disturbing act of bearing historical witness” and “a remarkable combination of personal testimony and almost sociological observation.”

Shortly after Fabisiak became an ordained minister in Poland in 1939, he was arrested along with his fellow Jesuit priests and held in custody by the Gestapo. He escaped, was recaptured, and then transferred to eight prison camps and two forced labor camps before ultimately being sent to the infamous Dachau concentration camp. Through each of these stops, Fabisiak bears witness to not only the barbaric acts of cruelty imposed upon him and his fellow prisoners by the Nazis, but also the kindnesses that were bestowed upon them by those sympathetic to their plight. Kirkus says the book is “far from a hopeless indictment of humankind” and that Fabisiak’s “remembrance of human decency in the unlikeliest of places is infinitely inspiring.”

“Memories of a Devil: My Life as a Jesuit Priest in Dachau” is available for sale on Amazon. The Kirkus Reviews review of the book appears in the company’s January magazine. For more information on the book, go to www.memoriesofadevil.com/. The entire Kirkus review can be read at https://www.kirkusreviews.com/book-reviews/chester-fabisiak/memories-of-a-devil/.

About Father Chester Fabisiak, SJ:

Father Chester Fabisiak, SJ devoted his life to God and his fellow human beings. He enthusiastically taught children and adolescents, seeking to prepare them for the responsibilities of this world as well as their eternal lives. His memoir, “Memories of a Devil,” is his educational, intellectual and spiritual gift to subsequent generations. It is available for purchase and download on Amazon.

Following his death in 1996, Chester’s niece, Danuta, saw that her uncle’s wishes were carried out and that his manuscript was published. She hopes that his retelling of the concentration camps will serve as a cautionary tale to humanity; that turning a blind eye to evil will result in tragedy.

Four John Marshall Law School Alums Recognized in Crain’s 2018 Notable Minority Lawyers List

CHICAGO, ILLINOIS, UNITED STATES, January 14, 2019 /EINPresswire.com/ — John Marshall Law School graduates Yuezhong Feng, Reginald Hill, Francine Lynch and Manish Mehta were all recognized by Crain’s Chicago Business as some of Chicago’s Notable Minority Lawyers.

The publication recognized 58 Illinois attorneys on its list. The attorneys were selected based on their practices, pro bono work and how they advance the causes of justice and equality.

To qualify for the list, honorees had to be nominated, based in the Chicago area, serving in a senior-level role at their law firm and responsible for noteworthy legal work in their practice areas.

Dr. Yuezhong Feng, a 2009 John Marshall J.D. graduate, is a shareholder and co-chair of Brinks Gilson & Lione’s China task force and an intellectual property litigator. Feng has experience in complex patent, trade secret, Hatch-Waxman, International Trade Commission and U.S. Patent & Trademark Office post-grant cases. Feng is fluent in Mandarin and frequently assists U.S. and European companies with intellectual property issues in China. With a doctorate in organic chemistry, Feng has helped companies seek patent protection in more than 100 countries.

Reginald Hill, who earned his J.D. from John Marshall in 1994, co-chairs Jenner & Block’s patent litigation and counseling practice. He focuses his practice on intellectual property litigation and counseling. Before practicing law, Hill spent 10 years as an electrical engineer in research and development at AT&T Bell Laboratories and Motorola, distinguishing himself in designing and developing computer hardware and architectures for audio and video technology.

Francine Lynch, who earned her J.D. from John Marshall in 1990, is a partner at Neal & Leroy and concentrates her practice in the areas of real estate development and land use; estates and trusts; probate and mortgage foreclosure; and zoning. During her career, Lynch has worked on many major land acquisition projects, including ones for the United Center, Kennedy King College, Chicago Transit Authority and more.

Manish Mehta, a 2006 John Marshall J.D. graduate, is a partner at Benesch and focuses his practice on intellectual property litigation, post-grant reviews, patent prosecution and counseling. Mehta is responsible for developing, creating and managing IP portfolios for his clients across a variety of industries. After joining Benesch in March 2017, Mehta established an India practice group—the firm’s first internationally focused team—and strengthened memberships in diversity organizations such as the Asian American Bar Association of Chicago and the South Asian Bar Association of Chicago.

New-Nonprofit 'Colorado Phoenix Project' for Self-Esteem and Resilience in Woodland Park, CO

CPP to focus on how to be a more stable person who can face life’s bullies, whether they are people or life’s experiences; featuring integration of a boxing gym

It’s not really about teaching martial arts, it’s more about bully awareness and suicide prevention.”

— Thom Seehafer, Founder Colorado Phoenix Project

WOODLAND PARK, COLORADO, UNITED STATES, January 14, 2019 /EINPresswire.com/ — Thom Seehafer, owner of Kenpo Karate in Woodland Park and life-long martial arts enthusiast, is branching out into a new nonprofit venture, the Colorado Phoenix Project.

The CPP will still be a martial-arts-based organization, but the focus of the Phoenix Project will be to instill a sense of self-esteem and resilience in survivors of tragedies and at-risk children.

Thom, who has been involved in martial arts himself for about 25 years, started studying at Kenpo Karate when he moved to Colorado almost 10 years ago. He made the decision to start running the martial arts school when his instructor was planning to leave. He was on the fence about taking over the school when he started seeing several posts on social media about children committing suicide because they were being bullied.

“That’s my message,” Thom said, of opening his own martial arts school. “It’s not really about teaching martial arts, it’s more about bully awareness and suicide prevention. So I just thought, you know, I’ve got about half of my life involved in martial arts, so I figured it would be a good platform for me to use to start getting my message out regarding what bullying is about, the statistics of it, how young it can hit a person, and the suicide prevention.”

According to Thom, his martial arts school focuses much more on teaching confidence, bully prevention, self-awareness, and discipline than on the actual fighting aspects of the sport. However, the Phoenix Project will really focus on his core beliefs about how to be a more stable individual who can face life’s bullies, whether they are people or life’s experiences.

Thom chose the name the “Colorado Phoenix Project” because he believes the mythical phoenix represents the reliance a well-trained person can have through all of life’s struggles.

“I’ve always used the phoenix in my business because of what the relevance and actual meaning of the phoenix is,” Thom said. “Some people know it, some people don’t, but the Greek mythological bird basically got too close to the sun, burnt to ashes. My focus is the fact that it rose up and became a big bright bird, stronger, faster, more intense, so using that so people understand that even if you have an addiction of sorts, or you’re a victim of rape or domestic violence or any of those things, you can rise up, you can make yourself stronger, and you can become a whole person, a better person.”

Though Thom, himself, has never struggled with severe bullying or thoughts of suicide, he did have struggles as a youth. He recounts being up to no good and spending his spare time in useless activities until he found martial arts. He used martial arts as an outlet for his stress and emotions, and as a positive use of his time that helped him stay disciplined and on a positive course.

To him, the benefits of martial arts far surpass the physical benefits. He has been passionate about sharing that with individuals of all ages, but especially with young people, for some time.

“The Phoenix Project has been in my mind for about a year, a little more than a year, to try to get something like this going,” Thom said. “(The goal of the Phoenix Project is to give) everyone a means to strengthen themselves through physical activity, emotional activity, mental activity, just strengthen them in a lot of different ways.”

An important part of the new non-profit will be the integration of a boxing gym. “The boxing gym will be useful in providing high-intensity training as well as changing lives,” Thom said. “Studies show that boxing in a ring can easily get participants to have a more significant impact on obesity, cardiovascular health and better quality of life.”

Thom is still considering how to package gym time and how to charge to the packages. Right now, his main concern is getting kids and adults who need the strength to move forward into the gym. He said he is more than happy to work with people to determine a price and package they can afford.

“I’ve done a lot of reading about gyms that use the honor policy, you know, you pay what you can,” Thom said. “It’s never been about money, and if there is an issue with money, let’s communicate and talk about it. How can we get your child or children in here and not have to worry about paying for it? If I can give kids means of building their confidence, and building their awareness, and yeah, also building their muscles, but just knowing that they have a good, strong mental focus to defend themselves and protect themselves, that’s what I want this gym to be,” he continued.

Colorado ranks high in the nation with rates of youth suicide. Thom sees his gym being a much-needed outlet for struggling youth in the community and wants to make sure kids who need to be at the gym can get to the gym.

“I see it becoming usable for all ages to the point of bringing in the variety of different fighters, different styles, different techniques. Just exposing people to different means of defense, (and) showing them that any age can protect themselves,” he said. “Teller County where the gym is going to be (has an even higher rate of suicide),” he said. “It’s still a taboo subject to talk about. We can’t talk about it because sometimes (people think) if you don’t talk about something it doesn’t exist, and when you have that kind of philosophy, that is you’re just hiding from something.”

Facebook reviews on the Kenpo Karate and CPP pages reflect that this sentiment is already in effect in his business, a good indicator that it will continue to be the case now that the Colorado Phoenix Project is up and running.

CPP is registered as a 501c3 nonprofit in the state of Colorado as well at the federal level through the IRS.

Biography of a Teacher Extraordinaire

FROM SIBERIA TO ST. KITTS: A Teacher's Journey

Katzen’s trajectory is cinematically adventurous, … the twine that holds together its diverse parts, tenderly captured by Simmonds, is her calling to be a teacher.”

— Kirkus review

BROOKLYN, NY, UNITED STATES, January 14, 2019 /EINPresswire.com/ — This new book is a captivating and deeply researched biography of Zenaida Katzen, a master of foreign language instruction who embraced a comprehensive approach to teaching. Simmonds was a student of Katzen's in the 1960s on the Caribbean island of St. Kitts. After his retirement from 25 years with the New York City public school system as a teacher and administrator, he was compelled to learn all he could about the special woman who inspired him to become an educator.

When she arrived in St. Kitts in 1961 to teach French and Spanish to teenagers (mostly boys), Zenaida Katzen (Zina) had already lived an extraordinary life in Siberia, China, France and Chile. What Simmonds uncovered during his five years of painstaking research is the complex story of a dynamic, driven, independent woman who dedicated her life to education and advancing the lives of children.

Zina Katzen wasn't simply a French teacher or a Spanish teacher – she was an educator who believed in providing students with an experience while they were learning. In St. Kitts, she organized activities and programs outside the classroom, and was able to secure funding from a wealthy friend in China who supported her work. A chapter of Simmonds' book includes letters between Zina and her benefactor, offering a unique perspective into how Zina carefully managed the financial, educational and extracurricular needs of her students, and revealing a more personal side of Zina – an animal lover who was devoted to her mother and aunt, both of whom lived with her in St. Kitts.

Simmonds' story is beautifully written, thorough and includes photos of Zina, her students, friends, family and the places where she lived and taught. Thoughtfully placed throughout the narrative are French phrases and words, which contribute to the cadence of the story, and lend authenticity to its message.

Simmonds spent five years on a research journey traveling to Chile, Hong Kong, Shanghai, St. Kitts and France researching the life of this teacher extraordinaire who profoundly touched the lives of an untold number of students in China, Chile and the Caribbean.

"FROM SIBERIA TO ST. KITTS: A Teacher's Journey" is published in print-on-demand paperback and ebook format by ISS Publishing and is now available on Amazon.com and Barnesandnoble.com.

Review copies of "FROM SIBERIA TO ST. KITTS: A Teacher's Journey" are available to media contacts upon request. Ira Simmonds is available for interviews.

Organizational Psychologist and Master of Resilience Dr. Madelyn Blair Returns to CUTV News Radio

JEFFERSON, MARYLAND, UNITED STATES, January 14, 2019 /EINPresswire.com/ — Dr Madelyn Blair has one of the keenest minds of our times and has shared it with CUTV News Radio guests on many occasions. Her career includes a wealth of practical experiences in business and leadership, one of the most notable while as a division chief at The World Bank. After obtaining her PhD (in a field known as organizational psychology) she has spoken, coached, led workshops, and written blogs about the most effective ways to create visionary plans, relate to colleagues across generations, and succeed in the business arena.

One of Dr. Blair’s main focuses has been resilience. She approaches it from the perspective of how to handle the unexpected with confidence and a focus on making a clear choice about your response. There can be other approaches to resilience. When dealing with resilience, Dr. Blair supports clients from a practical, action-oriented perspective, while other experts take a different track.

Dr. Blair’s advice on developing resilience is even more pertinent as the world faces a new year and all it brings in with it, such as the need to operate when things aren’t clear. That’s when being truly resilient can be a great benefit. Building resilience and teaching people to be comfortable in uncomfortable situations, are elements of Dr. Blair’s new Master Class. Dr. Blair has done extensive research on resilience. Her grasp of social psychology is useful in understanding how groups work together, and how leaders can bring themselves, their team, and their organizations through difficult times and continue to thrive while doing so. During the radio shows, Dr. Blair will explain more about the Master Class and why it is so meaningful, as well as announce when it will be held, and how to register.

Dr. Blair loves to wrap her mind around problems and faces issues with humor and zeal. She is an insatiable learner and inspires other to keep on learning as well. She says strengthening our ability to acquire and synthesize volumes of information is essential to success. One of her popular books, Riding the Current, centers on this principle. She is currently working on another related book and will discuss what’s changed from the original.

Dr. Blair says that leaders are all about making prudent decisions at the most critical times. She will discuss more of her theories on leadership, high resilience, innate curiosity and the communities that comprise an organization throughout her informative series. Be sure to get a taste of this noted advisor’s great advice.

CUTV News Radio will feature Dr. Madelyn Blair in a 10-part series beginning January 15th at 12:00pm EST and include interviews every Tuesday with Jim Masters or Doug Llewelyn.

At CES 2019, I tried Nreal's 85g fancy looking glasses, while it was a correct step towards the right direction, it have 6 major problems waiting to be solved.

MILPITAS, CA, USA, January 13, 2019 /EINPresswire.com/ — During CES 2019, I tried Nreal 85g fancy glasses looking gadget multiple times. While I liked its form-factor, 85g weight and fancy looking, it have a few major problems to be solved before it can work in real life.

1) Nreal's 85g weight on nose is a fake industry design and it simply do not work in real life, as human nose can only support less than 30g daily prescription glasses (typical prescription eye-glasses weight between 15g and 30g) for long period usage. Nreal's fancy industry design appearance was specifically designed to attract public attention, not for real life usage.

2) Nreal has fundamental privacy protection flaw, as others can directly see what you are watching from outside, from ALL angles. This is the same problem showed up on ODG R8, Lenovo Disney StarWar AR, AntAR, etc., all of these headset share the same "Birdbath" optical design.

3) Nreal's 52 degrees FOV is too small to provide Movie Theater experience. Its screen size can compete with TV screen though, but the screen size is just not large enough to compete with Movie Theaters.

4) Nreal glasses setting on nose is too close to sensitive middle of eye area and it get noticeably hot in a 10 minutes use. Nreal need to move the thermal source out by half an inch or so to improve the comfortability, but it will change its current ID noticeably.

5) Nreal do not fit daily prescription glasses, while 40% of the world population wear their daily prescription glasses (this ratio is even higher in China). It means 40% of population either need to change their daily habit or be excluded from the customer base.

6) Nreal used the so-called "Birdbath" optics architect, which is complicated and not the simplest possible high image quality, large Field of View optical deign form. It is cheaper than the $2300 MagicLeap waveguide though, but Nreal's $999 price tag are still out of the reach of ordinary consumer.

As a comparison, iGlass used the simplest off-axis optical architect, which use the inner surface of a reflective plastic mirror, and cheap LCD panel to achieve 80degree large FOV (30-feet giant screen size at 10-meter away) and 4K ultra-sharp image quality. iGlass puts its 130-gram weight on the forehead, with zero pressure on nose or face. It is so comfortable that even a 10-year old kid can wear iGlass for hours, like wearing a hat. And iGlass allows wearers to fit their daily prescription glasses under iGlass easily. More importantly, iGlass provide total privacy protection, only the wearer can see the 30-foot giant virtual screen in front of you, no light pollution to others. And iGlass cost is only $299, one third the cost of Nreal, within consumer affordability range.
