Legal Checkup Is A Must For All Businesses

Yes, just like we humans need a medical checkup, businesses also need to have a legal checkup once in a while. This is because businesses also grow, are often dynamic, and are constantly evolving with the hope to get better and bigger over time. As the process of change happens, all the different levels within the company or business get affected and are forced to change and cope with a new situation. All professional and successful businessmen keep themselves aware of these changes taking place. Obviously many legal issues do prop up and sometimes this can even be challenging and one must deal with the problems /opportunities in a positive way.

A regular legal checkup by an experienced attorney is recommended for all such dynamic businesses big and small. For Corporate it is mandatory to get a checkup at all levels. It is just like a preventive medicine. Though the concept is not yet very popular it does have a great future. Let us see what actually happens during a legal checkup? The main purpose of the checkup itself is for being defensive and the owner along with his lawyer have to systematically evaluate and they must predict and avoid the potential future legal problems. Similarly all legal obligations of the business have to be accepted. These are some of the other aspects of the legal checkup conducted by the attorney.

  • Review the status of the company
  • Evaluate legal strength and weakness
  • Recommend legal procedures
  • Educate the client
  • Prepare annual directories/minutes
  • Attorneys are often known to have a perspective that the internal management in the company may lack and this proves to be very useful to the business. A legal checkup will greatly help the business with the following,

  • Long term planning including issues
  • Valuation of the business for owner buy-sell purposes
  • Ability to budget the cost in advance.
  • The legal check up meeting starts by filling of questionnaire by the client and a review by the attorney. All good businesses should thus critically analyze their business regularly.

    Obama Promises Support For All Women Who Want Higher Education!

    There is hope now for the ordinary women in America. There is no doubt that education is the one thing that will bring improvement and empowerment to women. That is why President Obama is out to motivate women to go for higher education by announcing the Scholarship for Women program.

    There are millions of dollars to be disbursed under the program and every single woman who applies will be given ten thousand dollars. She should use the money to support herself through her study. The money can be used to pay for tuition. It can also be used on other things that she needs to be able to complete the course. That means she is virtually free to spend the money just as she wants. Those with children can spend it on supporting their children.

    The basic requirement for receiving support is to be an American woman aged 18 years and above. You should be willing to study for a higher degree or diploma. Once you show commitment to that by applying for a place in a college of your choice, you will be given that money, that is ten thousand dollars ($10,000). Fathers can apply and get support but the program is primarily designed for women.

    The application process is just as easy as signing up for a web service. There are no other requirements apart from proof of enrollment. This is a great opportunity for all women to grasp and get at least a certificate from a college or university of their choice.

    Super Mom – Strategies for Safe, Torment Free Lice Management for All Moms!

    “Mom, the teacher said I have LICE!”

    Funny how such a simple and innocent statement can make your blood curl.

    For some reason, lice seem to be synonymous with Back-To-School, at least with young kids. I’ve always wondered why it happens to be so… Where do they hide during the summer? Since they travel from head to head, who brought them to the classroom or daycare center in the first place?

    Wherever and whomever they come from, when your child brings them home, one thing is certain — they are a real pain! Yucky! Gross! Nothing good about them! And they take over your home and free time for a couple of weeks.

    The best way to handle these pesky little critters is calmly and methodically. A lot easier said than done, I know, but it’s the only way to keep your sanity/

    There are many ways to get rid of head lice. I personally prefer the good old fashion way of combing them out.

    Pesticide based products are harmful to you and your child’s health and there is plenty of evidence that they are causing lice to become resistant. This simply means you are going to need more poison in stronger and higher doses to get rid of those nasty little bugs.

    Pesticides also have no effect on nits, just the live adult lice and will need to be repeated at least three times for you to have peace of mind. This is because it takes about 10 days for nits to hatch and another 10 days for them to mature and reproduce.

    Here are a few tips to help you manage head lice naturally and effectively

    1. Stay calm

    Yes those little bugs are a nuisance and you can’t help but feel disgusted by them. And when you see them crawling around your child’s head.. well let’s just say it isn’t a pretty sight!

    But there’s no need to panic as that will only make things harder to manage for you and your child. Take a deep breath and get ready for battle!

    Remember that lice do not care about social economics and are just as likely to plant their nits on the head of a clean and wealthy kid, as they are on one that belongs to a street kid. In fact, lice prefer clean heads as the hair shaft is easier to adhere to. Dirty oily hair does not please a louse looking to hatch her batch of nits.

    2. Make it an educational experience

    When my five year old came home with lice, she had a lot of questions. So we got on the computer and watched a handful of videos. She was fascinated and asked a lot of interesting question.

    She did not for a second freak out about those little bugs crawling around on her head. That made taking the time to comb them out a much more pleasant experience. As I combed out some live ones she looked at them and was fascinated.

    This is certainly a lot easier than handling a kid who is freaking out about the whole experience. Remember your child will take his cue from you.

    3. Get rid of the lice!

    Set your child in front of an educational program on TV and get combing!

    There are plenty of methods that you can use to numb or suffocate the lice to get them off the hair easily. I personally use a natural mouse that is rosemary based so it has a pleasant smell.

    Using a special nit comb, methodically comb through the hair from one side to the next, combing all the way through to the end of the hair, and frequently wiping the comb on a clean towel. Reverse the direction and comb again.

    Comb again from front to back, and lastly from the neck to the forehead.

    This process will take a good half hour at least, depending on the length and thickness of your child’s hair, but you must be patient and diligent. It is the most effective way of removing nits and lice.

    You’ll want to repeat the comb through at least two more times, at three day intervals as it is easy to leave one little nit behind. And the last thing you want is another infestation.

    Once you have combed through, you can coat your child’s head in coconut or olive oil, place a shower cap over it, and wrap with a bandana. Leave it overnight and rinse clean in the morning.

    4. Clean linens and personal items

    This is the part of lice removal that can become a real nightmare. You feel so invaded and filthy you want to do a complete spring cleaning. Strip all the beds and pillows. Wash and dry your linens at high heat. Vacuum the bed, pillows, carpets, etc. Throw all the stuffed animals into a plastic bag and keep them sealed for 2 weeks. Phew! I’m exhausted just writing this list!

    Doing all these house keeping tasks are important, mostly for your peace of mind as lice cannot live long off a human head. But you don’t get carried away. You should allocate 10% of your time and energy to cleaning the house and 90% to the actual removal.

    Lice are enough to make you want to pull your hair out, literally, but don’t let them get under your skin.

    5. Keep the lice out once and for all!

    Comb through your child’s head every 2 to 3 days for a least 10 days to make sure you’ve gotten rid of all of the nits. This is a time consuming process, but well worth it.

    You can also apply rosemary or tea tree oil behind your child’s ears and at the base of the neck which are the favorite areas for lice to attach their nits. Lice do not like either of those smells and will stay away. You can also find a rosemary shield or conditioning spray as a protective measure. This is a good thing to do if your child has not gotten lice yet but others in her class have.

    For a few weeks, you may also want to pull up your child’s hair in a pony tail to minimize the chance she’ll catch lice from a friend. Make sure she also knows not to share, hats, hair brushes or other personal items with friends, something little girls just love to do!

    Before you cry victory, check all the heads in your family to make sure everyone is clear.

    Although there really isn’t anything fun about dealing with head lice, you can keep your sanity and get rid of them without having to resort to shaving your child’s head! For some reason or another, some kids never get lice. I can’t say we’ve been that lucky. But if you handle things calmly and methodically you will get rid of those impostors and go back to life as you love it!
