Coach Sandy Buda has decided to offer Papillion Running Back Roy Napora a redshirt that would extend his college football career another year. If approved by the NCAA, Roy Napora would have to sit out until the fall 1998 season opener in August. The highly sought after football player was an all purpose fullback under Coach Gene Suhr at Papillion-LaVisa High School last year. Napora was unavailable for comment.
The University of Nebraska at Omaha Football team will open the North Central Conference with play against the University of South Dakota. Coach Buda’s Mavericks will open up against USD with a very explosive but young team that includes metro standouts like Kirk Coleman, Bobby Gordon, LaRon Henderson, Roy Napora, Jeff Smith and Mike Zeplin. The game will undoubtedly have National Championship implications in the NCC according to sports officials Saturday.
The 2009 Car Complaint Index has just been published, showing the ranking, by vehicle, of cars receiving the highest ratio of complaints to sales. Complaints are fielded by the National Highway Traffic Safety Administration (NHTSA), results are published yearly and this year shows the Land Rover LR2, the Mitsubishi Lancer, the Pontiac Solstice, the Dodge Avenger and Subaru Impreza to be the top offenders.
Attention is sharply paid to vehicles with high complaint ratios for good reason: the percentage of defective vehicles, or lemons, is astoundingly high, especially from the U.S. Big Three automakers. To add insult to injury, when a defect is found in a vehicle, a manufacturer will do as much as possible to cover it up so that they are not plagued with demands for refunds or replacements.
There is, in fact, something called a secret warranty that can act as a deflection to consumers with valid lemon law complaints. A secret warranty is a strategy that manufacturers use to avoid a recall, explained California lemon law attorney Norman Taylor. Under a secret warranty, manufacturers will pay for repair of a particular defect in a particular kind of vehicle, even after the warranty has expired. They call them warranty adjustment policies or goodwill gestures. And even these have to be pried from the manufacturers by loudly complaining consumersonly the squeaky wheel actually gets the grease.
Taylor has witnessed such practice many times over the years. He has been a lemon law specialist since 1987, and he and his firm, Norman Taylor and Associates, have handled over 6,000 cases for consumers with a 98 percent success rate. He is one of the leading lemon law attorneys in southern California.
It comes as no surprise that manufacturers will resort to such tactics to avoid a recall. If the NHTSA discovers safety-related defects and orders a recall, the manufacturer must arrange to repair the defect at no charge or, if the manufacturer chooses, can replace or repurchase the vehicle or defective component. The manufacturer must also file a public report with detailed information on the recall, must notify all owners of affected vehicles, and take numerous other costly steps to right the wrong.
Because manufacturers can and do take every measure to avoid replacement or refund of defective vehicles, it behooves any consumer who believes he or she may have purchased a lemon to contact a qualified lemon law attorney right away.

Using the Law of Attraction as your own personal money magnet is easy when you know one of the best kept “secrets” of the Law of Attraction, which is “energetic magnetism.” In fact, the terms “Law of Attraction” and “energetic magnetism” could be used interchangeably since they are essentially the same. This article explains the top two tricks that most people miss when it comes to making the Law of Attraction work for money.
If you want to be magnetic to money, you want to create the ability to “draw” or “pull” money to yourself. To do this, you want to create within yourself something called, “magnetism” and to do that, you have to think in terms of “energy” rather than just thinking in terms of cerebral pursuits such as positive thinking.
According to Google’s Dictionary, magnetism is defined as, “A physical phenomenon produced by the motion of electric charge, resulting in attractive and repulsive forces between objects.” While that sounds, “a little too scientific” for most of us, what it’s basically saying is what you need to do is charge two objects with enough energy to attract to each other. In our case, since we want to manifest money with the magnetism of the Law of Attraction, the two objects which we want to “energetically charge” would be you and money.
So, let’s say that money already has a certain electrical charge or energy which can also be called a “frequency.” Like a radio dial has numbers to indicate the different energetic frequencies of the radio channels, so does money already have a “channel” (or energetic frequency) on the dial of this planet. So, now let’s say all you have to do is get the physical “energetic frequency” of your body (your radio dial) “tuned” to match money or whatever you desire. Although it sounds difficult, it’s really rather easy when you know a couple of tricks.
All you have to do when you want to learn how to attract money with the Law of Attraction using its magnetism is to think “energetically” rather than “intellectually.” When you think “energetically,” you’ve learned the true secret for using the Law of Attraction to manifest money. This is how to attract money, plain and simple, but most people don’t know about this one significant factor when learning how to manifest money.
You see, most people approach the law of attraction thinking that it’s all “in their minds.” But, it’s not just “all in their minds.” A larger part of learning how to manifest money is changing the physical “energetic” signal (frequency) that you are putting out to the Universe through your body, and you can’t easily do this by just doing affirmations. You have to do it by doing things that actually change your body’s energy, or frequency, to match the “electrical charge” or frequency of the money. When you do this, the indisputable science of magnetism takes over and you draw things to you very quickly.
One way to work “energetically” rather than “intellectually” with the Law of Attraction for money is by doing things that teach your body the physical vibration of what you want. For example, if you want more clients, then you physically pretend (and go through the physical motions) of acting as if you have clients. Yes, this means pretending to talk to them on the phone, making initial appointments, etc. This teaches your body the “vibration” (or frequency) of having clients and, thus makes your body “charged” with the identical “electrical charge” or frequency of having clients and, bingo, you become magnetic to having clients.
Since June 1999 the term De Facto has been used to describe the relationship between the two adults (over the age of 18 and including couples of the same sex) who:
1. live together; and
2. are not married; and
3. are not siblings, parent or child of the other party.
The Family Law Act defines De Facto relation as one where the couple is not married and are not related to each other and they are in a relationship and living together. A general requirement for De Facto couples is that they have been living together for a period of at least 2 years or they have a child together.
Other criterias to determine a De Facto relationship include:
1. how long the relationship has lasted;
2. whether the parties live together under one roof;
3. what the arrangements are between them in respect of their assets and finances;
4. whether they have come to own assets together since the commencement of their relationship, etc
Previously De Facto couples were not governed by the federal laws except when there were matters in respect of children. All other matters were governed by state and territory laws.
However, recent changes on 1 March 2009 allows De Facto couples to make applications to the Family Courts for orders in respect of division of property and maintenance for couples in a De Facto relationship. De Factor partners have a responsibility to provide financial assistance to their former De Facto partner if they are unable to maintain themselves and meet their own reasonable expenses from their income. The amount of support depends on the needs of the applicant partner and what the respondent partner can afford to pay.
The amount of non-financial contribution by either party will also be taken into account when considering the division of property.
An application for maintenance will have to be made within 2 years of the breakdown of the De Facto relationship.
Parties can choose not to be governed by the new laws by entering into an agreement which outline the distribution of property division and outline maintenance provisions if a relationship ends. These types of Agreements are called Binding Financial Agreements and can be entered into when both parties have obtained independent legal advice.
At LAC Lawyers we are available to assist you in the event of a breakup of your relationship with your partner and provide you with sound legal advice in respect of your rights and entitlement.
Legal Translation combines the creativity required in literary translation with the precise terminology of technical translation. Difficulties may arise due to various reasons like differences in legal systems followed in the countries where the source and the target languages are spoken, explicit nature of legal language etc. Hence there is need to approach professional
translation service providers when legal documents are required to be translated.
Legal terminology by its very nature is subject to incongruity. Legal terms have basis in country specific national legislation. The latter is a product of historical experiences and hence carries certain degree of regional asymmetry. The incongruity varies from near conceptual equivalence to complete voids. This poses a great challenge to accurate translation of legal documents. Since many source language expressions may not have precise equivalents in the target language and literal translations may not make sense, sometimes the original expression is reproduced after paraphrasing it. A translators note is usually appended in such cases.
Persons doing legal
translation need to have extensive linguistic training and knowledge of the source language. They also must be native speakers of the target language having thorough understanding of the vocabulary and syntactic structures of the language. They must have understanding of the local culture and knowledge of the legal system. They must be experienced in the legal field (novices wont do) and preferably possess certification by an accreditation organization.
The translators must have access to all legal resources like legal dictionaries, online databases, libraries, journals etc. These will be required to supplement their knowledge gained through experience in order to create translations that are legally valid in the target country. The translations must preserve the terminology, syntactical patterns and nuances of law from the originals. Reputed translation agencies make such resources available to their translators.
Another difficulty in legal translation unlike other forms of translation is certification. It is usually required when documents like birth / death certificates, immigration papers, college transcripts, police clearances, marriage licenses, divorce decrees and the like are submitted in foreign countries for acceptance by courts and other institutions as legal record. The translator or the proofreader will usually be required to affix his/her signature in the presence of a Notary Public attesting to the accuracy of the translated document.
The recent growth in international trade and increased globalization has led to rising demand for legal translation services worldwide. Opportunities exist in translating documents in various source-target language combinations. They are both challenging as well as rewarding. Persons having knowledge of international law as well as proficiency in more than one language would be ideal candidates to undertake such assignments.

It is a spiritual law that the desire to do necessarily implies the ability to do.”
You have all read of “Aladdin’s Lamp,” which accomplished such wonderful things. This, of course, is only a fairy story, but it illustrates the fact that man has within him the power, if he is able to use it, to gratify his every wish.
If you are unable to satisfy your deepest longings it is time you learned how to use your God-given powers. You will soon be conscious that you have latent powers within capable when once developed of revealing to you priceless knowledge and unlimited possibilities of success.
Man should have plenty of everything and not merely substance to live on as so many have. All natural desires can be realized. It would be wrong for the Infinite to create wants that could not be supplied. Man’s very soul is in his power to think, and it, therefore, is the essence of all created things. Every instinct of man leads to thought, and in every thought there is great possibility because true thought development, when allied to those mysterious powers which perhaps transcend it, has been the cause of all the world’s true progress.
In the silence we become conscious of “that something” which transcends thought and which uses thought as a medium for expression. Many have glimpses of “that something,” but few ever reach the state where the mind is steady enough to fathom these depths. Silent, concentrated thought is more potent than spoken words, for speech distracts from the focusing power of the mind by drawing more and more attention to the without.
Man must learn more and more to depend on himself; to seek more for the Infinite within. It is from this source alone that he ever gains the power to solve his practical difficulties. No one should give up when there is always the resources of Infinity. The cause of failure is that men search in the wrong direction for success, because they are not conscious of their real powers that when used are capable of guiding them.
The Infinite within is foreign to those persons who go through life without developing their spiritual powers. But the Infinite helps only he who helps himself. There is no such thing as a Special “Providence.” Man will not receive help from the Infinite except to the extent that he believes and hopes and prays for help from this great source.
Concentrate on What You Want and Get It.
The weakling is controlled by conditions. The strong man controls conditions. You can be either the conqueror or the conquered. By the law of concentration you can achieve your heart’s desire. This law is so powerful that that which at first seems impossible becomes attainable.
By this law what you at first see as a dream becomes a reality.
Remember that the first step in concentration is to form a Mental Image of what you wish to accomplish. Thisimage becomes a thought-seed that attracts thoughts of a similar nature. Around this thought, when it is once planted in the imagination or creative region of the mind, you group or build associated thoughts which continue to grow as long as your desire is keen enough to compel close concentration.
Form the habit of thinking of something you wish to accomplish for five minutes each day. Shut every other thought out of consciousness. Be confident that you will succeed; make up your mind that all obstacles that are in your way will be overcome and you can rise above any environment.
You do this by utilizing the natural laws of the thought world which are all powerful.
The Ras al Khaimah International Company is one of the most confidential, secure, and flexible offshore solutions available today. Apart from its integral features, it draws enormous credibility and prestige from the broader socio economic context of the UAE as a global financial centre. Born out of a multi-award winning Free Trade Zone (operating within a world class regional business hub), the RAK IC enjoys a strong commercial authenticity, untarnished by the tax haven status attributed to so many jurisdictions.
Ras Al Khaimah is one of the seven emirates forming the UAE federation. Since 2003 it has pursued a highly successful policy of industrialisation and economic diversification in various sectors. A key engine driving the Emirates economic growth and development has been its Free Trade Zone. Established in 2000, Ras Al Khaimah Free Trade Zone (RAK FTZ) remains one of the fastest growing and most successful free trade zones in the UAE. It is also home to the RAK International Business Registry and the RAK International Company.
In September 2006, the RAK Government launched an international business registry (the second offshore facility in the UAE), regulated by the RAK Free Trade Zone Authority – enabling foreigners to register international companies in the RAK Free Trade Zone without the need to establish a physical presence and with nominal equity investment (no minimum capital requirement).
This International Company model was based on a set of rules and regulations designed to offer one of the most attractive and flexible offshore tax and legal regimes in the world.
RAK ICs enjoy absolute confidentiality in every respect. There is no disclosure whatsoever of any details pertaining to the company, the beneficial owners or directors, and no public access to details on the international business registry.
Foreign individuals and entities can be 100% owners of RAK ICs, which enjoy zero corporation or capital gains tax as well as respected white list status deriving from the UAE. Indeed the UAE is the only OECD white listed jurisdiction that has no taxes for international companies, free zone entities, or local companies and individuals.
Businesses who do not intend to conduct any onshore operations within the UAE, can utilise the RAK IC for a wide range of purposes including international trade, ownership of international assets and real estate, as well as ownership of intellectual property (patents, trademarks and copyright). It can be used for head office operations, and act as a global holding company for entities engaged in various international activities. The RAK IC may hold shares in any legal entity in the world, including offshore companies in other jurisdictions. Naturally, there are no restrictions on capital and profit repatriation.
Despite a general prohibition on conducting business with persons resident in UAE or carrying out any trade within the UAE (unless it has obtained the appropriate licence from the relevant authority), the RAK IC can hold shares in both offshore, free zone and onshore UAE companies. It can also own or hold an interest in designated freehold properties throughout the UAE.
In addition a RAK IC can of course hold and operate a bank account in the UAE, and may also maintain professional relations with legal consultants, accountants, management companies or other similar persons within the UAE.
The UAE currently has in place 48 double taxation prevention treaties and plans to implement 5 new treaties every year. The majority of these treaties do not contain the recent OECD clause for exchange of information. Moreover, other than the Netherlands-UAE bilateral treaty, the UAEs bilateral treaties do not discriminate between entities established on the mainland or within the free trade zones. In this context a RAK IC will be able to avail itself of the benefits deriving from the UAEs comprehensive treaty network thus helping to safeguard profits remitted abroad arising from dividends, interest, royalties and fees.
In cases where certain anti avoidance provisions or optimal tax planning contingencies require a physical presence, a basic RAK Free Zone entity (flexi desk or flexi-office facility) can easily be established and can be wholly owned by the International Company affording a high degree of flexibility and confidentiality together with a physical presence, as well as the opportunity to procure visas for designated officials. If desired, a bona fide local business activity can be established through the acquisition of an appropriate business licence. Local management and control can also be asserted through the appointment of a corporate director in the UAE.
Although all UAE companies must abide by UAE law, RAK ICs can choose which legal system should be applied for resolving inheritance issues, commercial disputes, and any other legal matter. .
Flexibility is evidenced in the ability to tailor the memorandum and articles of association of a RAK IC to suit specific needs, including the citing of the preferred legal convention, whether it is common law, civil law, Sharia or Hindu succession law etc and also the issuance of multiple classes of shares, including custodian shares and restricted bearer shares.
The incorporation process itself is extremely straightforward with comparatively minimal compliance procedures and with a minimum requirement for one director and shareholder (which may be the same person). The director and shareholder can be individuals or corporate entities, and may of course be non resident in the UAE.
Moreover on an ongoing basis, RAK ICs have no annual reporting requirements, no need to conduct AGMs, and no need to file accounts or annual returns.
The RAK IC derives enormous strength from the stable socio-political environment and economic dynamism afforded by the UAE, and its location within of one of the fastest growing emirates. The Confidentiality, versatility, and security of the IC, combined with its zero tax status and access to the UAEs double tax treaty network make it a uniquely attractive proposition.
There is only a restricted number of fully licensed agents directly authorised to incorporate and manage International Companies in Ras al Khaimah, some of which can benefit from a prestigious World Trade Centre registered office address in Dubai.
How wonderful! Ive been informed that my case qualifies for lawsuit funding. How does that help me? More significantly, how many of those cases that qualify are actually successful in obtaining the settlement loans they seek? Just what does make the difference?
The industry out of which lawsuit funding is spawned is quite intriguing. Since Ive been involved with this industry, viewing it through the eyes of both an attorney and healthcare provider, one thing is unmistakably clear – the vast majority of cases that are submitted for pre-settlement loans get denied right out of the starting-gait! To what can this be attributed?
Unequivocally, the vast majority of individuals who seek settlement loans are unable to demonstrate that theyve sustained any specific losses/injuries. For those individuals who are unable to demonstrate such losses/injuries, it is extremely unlikely that they will prevail in the underlying lawsuit. It would be virtually impossible for them to succeed in obtaining settlement loans.
Make no mistake about it, it is very easy to file a lawsuit in this era. Contrariwise, it is often very difficult to prevail in the lawsuit once it is filed. Plaintiffs should keep uppermost in their minds the fact that the defendants are going to be viewing the situation, in almost all instances, quite differently than do the plaintiffs. Many plaintiffs find insurance carriers extremely reticent to pay out any money to plaintiffs for alleged injuries/losses. Never forget, those cases that are unlikely to prevail in the underlying litigation have virtually no chance of succeeding in obtaining settlement loans.
If you intend to obtain a pre-settlement loan, remember its your responsibility to clearly document what it is that you sustained by way of either loss or injury. Failure to do so will doom a case to failure. Therefore, it is prudent to retain competent legal counsel as you navigate these waters.
Many plaintiffs submit applications to Legal Settlement Loans requesting settlement funding as pro se litigants. A fact that is vital for all individuals who seek lawsuit funding is this – without an attorney, it is extremely unlikely that the funding sought will be obtained. Very few funding entities would be willing to advance funds to individuals who have no experience in this arena.
A well-accepted adage in Law is the following: The attorney who represents himself has a fool for a client. Rarely, is this not true in the case of attorneys. It is extremely likely to be the case for pro se litigants who are dealing with adverse parties, parties who are willing to do whatever it takes to see to it that the plaintiff does not prevail in the underlying action.
Furthermore, those pursuing lawsuit funding must be prepared to proffer expert witnesses who are both reputable and credible with respect to the issues litigated. It will be necessary to have an individual who can clearly establish the link between the injuries allegedly sustained and the incident involving the plaintiff and the defendant. An example of this is a recent case brought to Legal Settlement Loans. That case involved toxic mold. The applicant had obtained an experts opinion regarding either the existence of toxic mold or the extent of injuries allegedly sustained.
Success in obtaining settlement loan essentially relies on three key components: (1) the plaintiff must retain competent legal counsel; (2) it is wise to only submit claims for lawsuit loans for which injuries are clearly demonstrable; and (3) the plaintiff must be prepared to produce an expert who is both reputable and able to satisfactorily communicate the link between the alleged incident and the injuries arising from that incident. (Such testimony may be obtained either by depositions or written opinions, to name but a few methods.)
The vast majority of funding-entities offer virtually no guidance to those who seek settlement loans. However, litigation funding experts work very closely with their clients to assist them in finding the pre-settlement loans that are most applicable to the cases submitted. Additionally, these litigation funding experts will work closely with clients to assist them in finding the funding-entities that have the financing arrangements that are most desirable for the clients needs. (Additionally, they will assist their clients in obtaining the funding as quickly as possible.)
Plaintiffs are wise to keep in mind that it isnt sufficient merely to have a case that qualifies for lawsuit loans. If you want to obtain the litigation financing needed to pursue a lawsuit through to an appropriate conclusion, it will be necessary for you to present a case that is ripe for funding.
