Divorce – 5 Tips If You Are Called As a Witness

If you are called as a witness in a divorce case, you have probably chosen sides. After all, your friend, relative or employer is the one who asked for your help, it is only natural for you to feel loyalty to that person.

If you are a brother, sister, mother or father, your whole family could be effected by the court’s decision. If you are a teacher or day care provider, you may feel closer to the parent you know better. Regardless of why you are being called on to describe your contact with the family, the following tips will serve you well.

1. Tell the truth. You may feel inclined to color your testimony to help the person who called you. Hopefully, what you say will do that. However, if you exaggerate or lie, it is likely that opposing counsel will spot inconsistencies in what you say, and will ask you clarifying questions in cross-examination that can make it look like you weren’t being totally honest in the first place. If that happens, the judge is less likely to take your statements seriously.

2. Don’t get angry. That can be difficult. We lawyers are trained to ask questions in the most annoying way possible. We are trying to protect our client’s interests, and the less credibility the opposition’s witnesses have, the better off we are. If we can get a rise out of someone, or make them seem hostile, we have a better chance of showing the judge that what they say shouldn’t be given much weight. After all, if they are telling the truth, they wouldn’t have any reason to get defensive, would they?

3. Make sure you answer the question you are asked. Sometimes, you may think the judge needs information you have, and that the lawyers aren’t going to ask for it. This may be so, but the lawyer may have good reason not to solicit that particular fact.

The judge may not be sympathetic to what you could say, and the lawyer doesn’t want to annoy him. The other facts that have been brought out may make the bit you want to add unhelpful to the case. Even if it is something the lawyer wants to put into evidence, there may be other things that have to be established first.

If you blurt out your contribution ahead of time, it could damage its effectiveness. Some things have to have a “foundation” before they can be put into evidence. If what you say is the subject of the other side’s objection, it won’t be as easy to use when it might have done the most good.

4. If you don’t understand the question, ask for clarification. Explain that you don’t understand what information is being sought if you don’t know. Don’t play dumb. However, if what you are asked doesn’t make sense, it may have been poorly expressed.

Lawyers can be in a situation where they know what information they want, but they just aren’t sure how to get it. Things change during a trial, and the testimony that seemed necessary in preparation may not be so important as the case develops. Conversely, things may come up that the lawyer didn’t consider beforehand, and she may suddenly realize that a piece of information may be useful.

Unfortunately, that kind of question may arise so suddenly that it doesn’t come out right. The moral here is that you should always understand what you are answering, and you should never hesitate to ask for more information before you respond if you need it.

5. In some cases, the lawyers request what is called a “separation of witnesses”. This is done so one person can’t change their testimony based on what he heard another person say on the witness stand. After you have testified, you may be able to stay and see the rest of the case. Whether no separation was requested, or you are allowed to stay and watch the Proceedings after you have spoken, there is a tip that will keep you from being yelled at, removed from the courtroom, or in extreme situations sent to jail for contempt of court.

Don’t shake your head. Don’t laugh. Don’t heckle the witness, even if you do think the performance is bogus. Don’t try to provide answers to the witness. In short, pretend you are a fly on the wall, and don’t say a word unless the judge or one of the attorneys asks you to.

How to Cure Any Phobia Without Prescription Drugs or Therapy

A phobia is an intense fear that causes you to avoid the feared thing or endure it with unbearable mental pain. Additionally, a phobia is an irrational fear, in that most people either do not fear the same thing that you do or fear it to a much lesser degree. Some examples of common phobias are the fear of public speaking, dating the opposite sex, heights, spiders, closed spaces, crossing bridges or tunnels, going to the dentist, swimming in the ocean, flying in planes, and being in a crowd of people .

Classical Conditioning

One of the most powerful techniques used for curing phobias is called classical conditioning. Simply put, classical conditioning involves pairing a particular feeling with a particular event over and over again until the feeling and event become automatically associated with each other.

Let me give you an example. Let's say that whenever you give a public speech, you feel intense fear. However, you wish to feel intense calm, whenever you give a public speech. How do you accomplish this?

First Step: First you must find something that makes you feel intensely calm – something like two or three shots of whiskey.

Second Step: Then whenever you give a public speech, you drink two or three shots of whiskey just before going onstage. You will undoubtedly feel calm during your public speech.

Third Step: After giving many public speeches under the influence of whiskey, you will automatically associate giving public speeches with feeling calm. Once this happens, you will be able to calmly give public speeches – without drinking whiskey beforehand! Mission accomplished, your phobia is cured!

Sedatives

You say, "Wait a minute! If my supervisor catches me drinking alcohol on the job, I'm history!" Good point. In many workplaces, drinking alcohol is taboo and those found committing the taboo may suffer serious consequences. Luckily, there are other sedatives that are more socially acceptable.

Some examples of socially acceptable sedatives are Remeron, Xanax, Thorazine, Risperdal, Benadryl, Lunesta, and Rozerem. All of these sedatives need to be prescribed by a physician, except for Benadryl. And taking any one of these sedatives is more discreet than drinking alcohol, since it does not leave your breath smelling and your eyes red.

Okay, so which sedative should you choose? Upon researching each sedative, you see that each of them works differently, producing different types of sedation. You end up choosing Benadryl, since it is the easiest to obtain (no physician's prescription needed) and it sedates effectively.

Benadryl (Diphenhydramine Hydrochloride)

Benadryl (diphenhydramine hydrochloride) is an antihistamine that is used to relieve allergy symptoms. It is also used as a sleep aid, due to its sedative effects. Benadryl sedates by blocking histamine from its receptor sites. Histamine is a neurotransmitter that promotes alertness, arousal, and allergy symptoms. By blocking histamine, the opposite occurs.

Another way Benadryl sedates is that it inhibits the re-uptake of serotonin. Serotonin is a neurotransmitter that calms the brain. Neurons release serotonin to send calming signals throughout the brain, but then the neurons need to reabsorb serotonin to turn off the calming signals. Benadryl interferes with this turning-off process.

Phobia Cure

Now that you have a sedative that can be bought over-the-counter, is very affordable, works quickly, and sedates effectively, you are ready to cure your phobias. Pick a phobia. Fear of dating the opposite sex? Okay let's cure it.

First Step: Strike up pleasant conversations with potential dates, and ask them if they would like to get together with you to do something fun (eg, bowling, dinner, movies, swimming, etc.). To reduce the chance of rejection, only ask potential dates who already know you and have expressed some interest in you. A good hunting ground is your workplace or any other populated place that you visit often.

Second Step: Take 25-50 mg of Benadryl (diphenhydramine hydrochloride) a half hour before going on the date. If you must drive a motor vehicle, be careful – Benadryl may cause drowsiness! Your date may drink alcohol, but you may not; because Benadryl increases the intoxicating and sedating effects of alcohol. The sedating effect of 25-50 mg of Benadryl lasts 4-6 hours.

Third Step: Go on many dates, taking 25-50 mg of Benadryl a half hour before the start of each date. Eventually, you will automatically associate feeling calm with going on dates. Once this happens, you will be able to calmly go on dates – without taking Benadryl beforehand! Mission accomplished, your phobia is cured!

Warnings, Drug Interactions, and Common Side Effect

When using any drug, some common sense is needed. Even though Benadryl (diphenhydramine hydrochloride) is a very safe drug with minimal side effects, I advise you to check with your physician and pharmacist to see if it is okay for you to use Benadryl as prescribed here.

To avoid adverse drug or medical interactions, always read the container label of any drug that you take. Benadryl enhances the effects of alcohol, sedatives, and tranquilizers. Additionally, taking Benadryl tablets and applying Benadryl cream or ointment enhances the effects of each other. If you have glaucoma, an enlarged prostate gland, or breathing problems, Benadryl may worsen your condition.

Since Benadryl may cause drowsiness, be very careful while driving or operating hazardous equipment. To reduce your chances of becoming too drowsy, do not exceed 50 mg per dose, do not take more often than every 4-6 hours, and do not take more than six doses within a 24-hour period of time.

Discussion

Therapy and prescription drugs can be very expensive, especially if you do not have health insurance. Oftentimes the poorest members of society have to live with mental health problems such as phobias. Affording the best health care, the rich rarely have to live with phobias or other mental health problems. Thus, mental health relates to financial health. However, there is an alternative way to cure mental health problems such as phobias. This way involves using an effective self-help technique with an affordable over-the-counter sedative.

How to Make Dark Colored Icing – Making Red, Black, and Dark Blue

Making dark colored icing can be a little tricky. If you’ve tried, you’ve probably ran into the same problems most do.

The most common problem is that the color is simply not dark enough. Have you ever tried to make red, but it only looks pink? Then, to try to make it darker you add more and more food color. Makes sense right? Next thing you know the consistency of your icing has changed. So you give it a little taste and yuck! It now tastes bitter and disgusting. Does this sound familiar?

Are you frustrated yet? I am worn out just talking about it. Well, there is an easier way to make dark colored icing!

Let’s start with making red.

How to make Red

What you will need:

-red paste or gel concentrated food color

-red powder food color

-toothpick

The first thing we want to do is make our frosting a nice pink color. To do this use the red paste or gel coloring. Dip a clean toothpick into the color, or just squeeze a small amount if using gel in a tube or bottle. Now, mix in the color.

The goal is to get a nice medium (not too light, not too dark) shade of pink. Just add the color a little at a time and mix until you reach a nice medium shade of pink.

Next, we are going to use the red powder color. Sprinkle the red powder into your frosting a little at a time and mix it in. You will notice it getting darker. Add the powder color until the icing starts to look red. Set it on the counter and walk away for about 10 minutes. When you come back, it will have darkened to a nice shade of red.

How to make Black

What you will need:

-black paste or gel concentrated food coloring

-black powder color

-toothpick

There are two easy ways to make black.

The first is using chocolate frosting. Simply add your black paste or gel food coloring to the chocolate. Since it is already dark, it will not take much color to make it black.

Not everyone likes or wants to use chocolate though. The second method uses white or buttercream frosting to make black. It is exactly the same as making the red.

You want to first make your icing a nice shade of gray. Using the black paste or gel food coloring, mix in small amounts of color until you reach a medium shade of gray. Dip a clean toothpick into the color, or squeeze out a small amount if using gel in a tube or bottle.

Next, add the black powder color a few sprinkles at a time and mix it in until it starts to look black. Walk away for about 10 minutes and it will be dark black when you return.

How to make Dark Blue

What you will need:

-royal blue paste or gel concentrated food coloring

-blue powder color

-toothpick

When making dark blue it is best to start with royal blue paste or gel as your base. There are several shades of blue available, but royal blue produces the best results.

Dip your toothpick in the food color, or squeeze a small amount from the tube or bottle if using gel. Mix it in. Add color until you reach a nice “true” blue color. True blue to me is like the blue on the American flag, a nice medium shade of blue.

Now, sprinkle the powder color in a little at a time and mix it in until the icing starts getting darker. Set it to the side and come back in ten minutes. It will darken as it sits.

If you are trying to make navy blue, add a very small touch of black paste or gel color. When I say very small I mean literally just a touch of it. This will deepen it enough to make it a dark navy blue.

Use the paste/gel food color and powder food color combination to make all of your dark colored icing. It will save you a lot of time and frustration.

Writing For Business – The 8 Parts of a Personal Business Letter

  2. Date: Enter today’s day on the next line. Spell out the full month, comma, date, comma and the year in 4 figures such as “2011”
  3. Letter Address: This area has whom the letter is sent to and their complete address. Write out the person’s full name on the first line:The street address goes on the next line or two as required.Write out the full name of the city, the Postal Abbreviation for the State followed by the zip code.
  4. Salutation: This is a formal greeting. Usually “Dear” followed by formal titles, i.e.: Mr., Mrs., Miss, Dr., or Reverend. If you are writing to a woman and do not know her martial status or which title she prefers “Ms.” Is acceptable. Follow the title by either the full name or just the last name.
  5. Body: This is the most important part of your letter. Use paragraphs properly. Be short and to the point so the recipient quickly knows the purpose of your letter. Give enough detail, but don’t use more words than needed.
  6. Complementary Close: Use phrases such as “Sincerely yours,” or “Yours truly”. Capitalize the first letter of the first word, lower case for the second word followed by a comma.
  7. Sender’s Name: This is where your name goes, skip four spaces between the complementary closing and your typed name. Use your first and last name.After printing the letter, sign your name between the complementary close and your typed name.
  8. Enclosures: If you are including any documents with the letter, such as a resume, product sample, or other explanatory documents, show that there is an enclosure by typing “Enclosure(s)” one line below the closing. You may list each enclosure by name, this is a good way to make sure that the recipient knows exactly what is in the envelope.

These are the parts and order of a personal business letter. It is assumed that you are personally typing this letter yourself, so there is no need for the typist’s initials.

7 Simple Steps to Prepare and Deliver a Speech

Central to the art of public speaking is the method used to prepare and deliver speeches. If we are sure we know how to go about preparing and delivering a speech, our fear subsides and we can lose ourselves in the preparation of our remarks. Good preparation will allow us to deliver the speech with confidence and often with pleasure The purpose of this article is to outline and explain the steps of a tried and tested method.

1. Determine the purpose of your speech. Good public speaking is purposeful. There should be a good reason for the time and energy spent in preparing, delivering and of course listening to the speech. The best measure of a speech is what it does for the audience. Therefore the speech purpose should be defined in terms of the audience reaction. To determine the purpose of the speech ask the question, “What do you want the audience to do as a result of hearing your speech?

2. Select the Central Idea of the Speech The careful selection of the central idea is one of the most important steps because a major goal of good public speaking is the communication of ideas. The central idea is the unifying factor of your speech. This is achieved by breaking the idea down into subdivisions which can be used as headings for your speech.

3. Selecting the Means of Presenting the Central Idea. Once the central idea has been decided on the speaker is ready to select the means most appropriate to his task. Depending on the task the speaker will select one of, or, a combination of the following means;- Humour – should they joke with the audience Narration – tell a story Exposition ‘present data Justify- argument Motivation – appeal to the audience’s emotions

4. Researching Information to Support Your Ideas. There are 4 general sources that the speaker may go for help and generally in the following order (i) From himself – the knowledge and experience they have already gained (ii)Reading/Watching – from various sources e.g. internet, books, films (iii) Talking with others – interviewing by phone or face to face (iv)Writing or emailing for data

5. Selecting and Arranging Your Research (Outlining.) It will be usual if your research has been thorough that you will have more data than you can use for your speech. You will then have two problems. The first is what you should keep. The second is what order will you present the material. You will principally refer to the central idea to select the material to include in the speech, based on the relevancy of the material. The secondary points to consider in selecting the items to present are: (i) What is the most interesting? (ii) What is the emotional impact? (iii) Which is briefest? (iv) Which is most illustrative? (v) Which has the most authority?

The arrangement of the materials follows a 3 part process to prepare a working outline; (i) Into 3 parts ‘introduction, body and conclusion (ii) Headings arranged into a logical order (iii)The material put in order to support the heading

6. Practicing the speech. Like a play you should deliver your speech several times in front of friends and if possible in the room where it is to be delivered. The closer the practice conditions and surroundings are to the actual conditions you will face the better prepared you will be for the actual delivery of your speech. You should practice your speech until you become familiar with it but not so often that it is committed to memory. You should not commit to memory because you will probably lose the conversational quality of the speech and the speech becomes inflexible.

7. Delivery Of The Speech. A speech should be seen as a sincere effort to communicate and this is done best in a direct, conversational, and lively delivery. It is a sincere effort to communicate not an act or a performance. Approach the position you will speak from enthusiastically. Take a firm but comfortable stance. Your hands should be at your side except when you are gesturing. It is good to move to enhance an idea or relieve any tension you may be feeling.

The main component to the art of speaking excellence is the communication of ideas. The method outlined here will enable you to present your ideas effectively and with confidence.

Salmon Fishing Tip – How to make Your Own Salmon Bait

There are times when you just can’t find any suitable bait for salmon fishing. I’ve looked at some of the dried vacuum packed salmon eggs at sporting goods stores but frankly I think you may just be wasting your money trying to catch a salmon using that so called bait.

The following is a recipe for tuna balls that really makes a good alternative salmon bait. I’ve caught fall salmon using tuna balls fished below bobbers in tidewaters. I have also used tuna balls up river after fishing a hole for 15 to 20 minutes without success using eggs, switch to tuna balls and have had guys in my boat catch salmon. Tuna balls work and here is how you can make them:

Tuna Balls for Salmon fishing

You will need:

1. Premium Canned Tuna in oil – one can

2. Some old salmon eggs that have been in the freezer for a couple of years,

3. Mike’s Glo Scent Oil – Shrimp.

4. Small Puffballs – pink.

5. Raspberry Jello – one pkg.

6. Wedding vale – pink or red

7. Wonder Thread or 6 lb. Mono also works

In large bowl:

1. Drain off Tuna oil and save in separate container.

2. Mix in the Jello with the Tune to desired color.

3. Finely chop up roe and combine with tuna and jello, leave some eggs intact.

4. Add small hand-full of the puff balls, mix,

5. One half bottle of Mike’s Shrimp Oil, mix (use rubber gloves to prevent divorce)

6. Cut the wedding vale into 4″ squares.

7. Spoon out enough mixture onto the 4″ squares to make a ball about the size of a quarter, hold the corners of the wedding vale and use the thread to make a tight ball of mixture. Tie tightly and cut off excess wedding vale and place in a clean jar and add tune oil and allow to site overnight. FISH ON !

8. Send this recipe to one or more of your fishing buddies who uses old dried out roe.

Note: this message will self-destruct in 60 seconds, Good Luck and Good Fishing.

It is only natural that men love women. They are attracted to them and can’t live without them. You should always put this in your mind as it will be a great to have the confidence knowing this.

Men act tough because it is in their nature to be tough. But, as tough as they are, they are also seeking love and comfort. This is especially true if your man if the silent type who doesn’t know how to show affection towards other people. Break him down and make him loosen up on you. Knowing that he has somebody to talk to would be a great advantage to you.

Men Are Secretive
In reality, men are only tough because they are made by society to be that way. Men have problems too. The problem is they carry the burden all to themselves. You should learn what problems he is carrying and share the load with him. Help him in the problems that he is currently facing and learn to communicate with him.

They don’t know how to show their emotions
Men are shy to show their true emotions because they are scared of being teased upon by their friends. Learn to get his trust so that he would be able to let out his pains and thoughts. Making him comfortable over you would make him stay no matter what.

Give him the freedom that he wants
If you are not already married, let him date other girls. I know it’s hard but it is more likely to pay off. Men who are given the freedom won’t be able to take it of their mind that even if you are his girl, you are still giving him the freedom to date. This alone would make him think that you are so perfect because you are willing to make him try out other girls. He will naturally date other girls but he will never get it off his mind that you are better because you are willing to give him up just to make him happy. Nothing makes men crazier than this. The only problem is that it is really hard to do but it will be worth it.

Girls tend to be really controlling in relationships
This is the very reason why men easily get tired and leave. You should always remember that men are still men. They want to go out with others and they want to have the fun of a lifetime. Just give them what they want and don’t think of the consequences if all goes bad. Trusting a man would more likely make him stay than controlling him and not letting him enjoy his life.

Make him feel that you are always there for him
Men want to have somebody that they can trust. Having the ability to be his girl and at the same time his best friend is definitely a good thing. Let him consider you as one of his best friends that he can cry on.

Doing these things would definitely make a man crazy over you. They can be tough but in reality, they can be tamed if you know what it takes.

Review of Secrets of Millionaire Investor Book by Adam Khoo & Conrad Alvin Lim

Before this book, I had no idea about what were the true techniques to invest in the stock market. When I saw this book on the shelve of bookshops, I immediately turn its pages to check it’s content and was pleasantly surprised at the level of detail and coverage of investing in the stock market. Impressed with what I read, I bought it without hesitation.

After reading this book and applying some of the lessons taught, I can say that I am a better investor in the stock market now. Before, I was only a rookie. I will explain to you why.

This book teaches both the fundamental aspects of selecting stocks which Adam will show you. The technical aspects to trading is illustrated by Conrad who traded his way out of bankruptcy using very good strategies. He easily makes US$5000-US$7000 a month trading stocks and options. That can replace anybody’s salary anytime, won’t you agree? His record is US$22k++ in a single month.

One of the important concepts mentioned early in the book is to invest in the stock market and use the power of compounding. You can be an automatic millionaire by the time you retire using this technique. All you need is patience and some consistency in investing. This was how Warren Buffet became the richest man by investing in the US market and let his investment returns compound.

The rest of the book explains four strategies to grow your funds in the stock market depending on which level of an investor you are currently at with the returns and time horizon you are looking at.

The first growth strategy is the most basic level for novice investors which teaches you to achieve compounded returns of 10%-12.08% annually by buying the market or buying sectors or industries that are outperforming.

The second growth strategy shows you about value investing which can achieve you an annual return of 15%-25%. This method requires you to buy great companies at huge discount and sell them for a huge profit. Warren Buffet uses value investing to pick his stocks. You will learn the nine criteria of value investing to pick stocks that investors like Warren Buffet or George Soros would.

The third growth strategy explains to you about momentum investing which you can achieve a higher return of more than 25% at a shorter time like 3 to 6 months. This involves picking stocks that are about to increase in price significantly due to market optimism. Adam shows you seven steps to screen for this kind of stocks.

I enjoyed this book very much as it was clearly written and provided a practical approach to investing and trading. This book has given me a good foundation as a beginner to prepare me for more advance strategies and implementation. I strongly recommend this book to anyone who wants to start investing or trade in any stock market and does not know how to start.
