Whether you're a Mac novice or a seasoned expert, there's plenty to explore in the latest version of OS X. Wondering how to get started? Here are some of the best tips and tricks for getting the most out of Yosemite:
If you are an employer, the number of employees in your business will affect what you need to know about the Affordable Care Act (ACA), according to a new IRS Tax Tip. The Tax Tip offers information on applicable large employers, employer shared responsibility provisions of the healthcare law, the small business health care tax credit and business reporting requirements.
How often do you go to a conference (or a party, or a PTA meeting), meet ten interesting people, and then forget all of their names the next day? With Humin that might never happen again. The app recalls all the everyday contact info we've come to expect from our address books, but it organizes them by the way we actually think, so that you can search by "met last week" or "works at Cirque du Soleil." Humin is currently only available for iOS 7.0+, however, interested users can sign up for the forthcoming Android Beta Release.

My last post talked about eliminating bad clients from your practice. But the best way to deal with truly difficult clients is by not taking them on in the first place. That requires that you be able to identify potentially bad clients early - preferably before a retainer is signed.
Create a pre-qualifying process. Think about the bad clients you've represented in the past and make a list of the warning signs or red flags that arose during your first conversation or initial consultation. If you can recognize the warning signs in advance, you can stop bad clients before they enter your practice.
To get you started, here are a few bad client warning signs:Read more: http://legalease.blogs.com/legal_ease_blog/2014/10/how-to-avoid-bad-clients-before-they-enter-your-practice.html#ixzz3FEPBYH33
Please let us know if you have any comments on this guide. We welcome input and suggestions to improve the ease of hyperlinking by attorneys.
LinkBuilder will search a Microsoft Word document for citations to CM/ECF filings and insert a hyperlink to the corresponding file in the CM/ECF system. LinkBuilder can recognize and link to attachments in the record, as well as page-specific references, to create pinpoint access to specific information in the case. Using LinkBuilder will greatly aid the court by creating easy access to documents relevant to the brief being filed. The judge and the law clerk working on the document will not have to search CM/ECF for the proper document but will be able to call it up with the click of a mouse. Judge and Chambers Staff may want to use LinkBuilder in orders to show attorneys how useful these links can be.
A log-in and password for either CM/ECF or PACER is required as well as internet access. LinkBuilder is tested and known to work with CM/ECF 5.1.1 and higher and in Word 2010 and Word 2013. (It does not work on the Mac version of Word.) For best results, LinkBuilder requires a component report to be installed in the court's CM/ECF system. This report provides hyperlink information to the LinkBuilder program for ease in creating links and without PACER charges being incurred by the user. Court's can download the companion report LinkBuilder will run from a Docket Sheet if the companion report is not available.
A criminal history can affect your eligibility for both public housing and, if a landlord conducts a background check, private housing. An arrest - even before anyone is found guilty - can often trigger eviction of you or your entire household from public or private housing.
Federally Subsidized Housing(NYCHA & Section 8)
Federally subsidized housing includes all public housing developments (such as NYCHA in New York City and RHA in Rochester) and Section 8. Rules in subsidized housing can be very strict, and even minor arrests or criminal convictions can affect your right to stay in public housing. This section includes information about "Admissions" - or the rules guiding when your criminal conviction might prevent you from living in public housing, even if your family lives there, and about "Termination of Tenancy" - or eviction based on criminal justice involvement. Most of the information here is specific to the New York City Housing Authority (NYCHA) and to Section 8 administered by NYCHA. To find out about the laws specific to your city or county use LawHelp/NY (www.lawhelp.org/ny) to find a housing legal services provider in your area.
Public housing agencies and Section 8 providers can and do obtain criminal records of applicants and tenants. Much of the information in this section is based on How to Get Section 8 or Public Housing Even With a Criminal Record, a publication of the Legal Action Center.- See more at: http://www.bronxdefenders.org/housing-and-arrests-or-criminal-convictions/#sthash.r1DYLJKF.dpuf

Being busy isn't the same as being successful or profitable. Getting rid of bad clients makes room for you to take on additional, higher value clients - and chances are that your higher value clients will be less price sensitive. Often, you can make more money with less high value clients than you can with high volume practice filled with lower value clients.
If Inbox Zero sounds good in theory but you are too busy to spend time learning a full-on System for managing your email, here is a simple way to get your email under control that you can start going as soon as you are finished reading this post.
To get your email under control, you don't need to read books, watch a video, buy anything, download anything, or get a fancy email app. All you have to do is start using something that is already built into your email.
Star/flag a message if you have to do something with it.
The bug is what's known as a Remote Code Execution vulnerability, or RCE.
This means that someone who isn't already logged on to your computer might be able to trick Bash into running a program that it wasn't supposed to.

We should note 1st of all that you can update your iOS device through a Mac with iTunes without having much extra space. That might be the quickest/easiest way to go
Today iOS 8 came out. There was a massive rush to try to install and download it. The one thing that we were not prepared for or made aware of was the need to have up to 4.7-6.9 GB of space available in order to download and install iOS 8. The reason you needed 4.7-6.9 available is that the 1.1-1.3 GB download of iOS 8 also needs to move a lot of files around during installation.
If you are like us, you might not have that much space needed on your iOS device. We've spent the last year downloading music, videos and apps to the point where our iPads tell us to stop. So now we need to delete some of our stuff.
Once you free up your space on your device, and back up your device, then you will be officially ready to download iOS 8. In this how-to I will discuss the two different methods to free up storage space off the device, either from the device itself, or managing the device while being connected to the computer through iTunes...
