I am a patent attorney, but the ramblings to your left are not legal advice. Peculiarities of the law, the facts, the client and the lawyer (mostly), make every case unique. If you feel this blog speaks to you, you must seek professional help (heck, why not talk to a patent lawyer while you are at it).
If you see something you like, join in the conversation. The chance I might be wrong is merely theoretical at this point, but feel free to point out any monkeys you see waxing Bard-like in my posts. I am too old to admit a mistake, but I will enjoy the discussion. No information you send me or post is confidential. By posting or sending anything to me, you authorize me to use it for ANY purpose I desire, including, but not limited to, folding origami ballerinas for my Nutcracker diorama.
When it comes to websites, you’ll agree with me that WordPress is one of the most popular choices for blog content marketers and general bloggers like us. I use it and many of the most successful marketers, bloggers, and business owners I know use it, too.
In fact, the usage statistics for WordPress might surprise you. They certainly surprised me.

As a kind of follow-on article to our previous post (in which we went in to quite a bit of detail reviewing the best-selling WordPress X Theme on Themeforest), we got in contact with Theme.co (the company behind the theme) to ask if they happen to have any nice examples of X Theme in action. They kindly obliged with a pretty extensive showcase — within which we found a number of absolute stunners! Here’s a list of favorites.
California corrections officials on Friday unveiled new regulations that will increase the chances of early release for hundreds of state prison inmates, and expand the credits they earn for demonstrating good behavior and completing rehabilitation programs behind bars.

The highly anticipated — and hotly contested — guidelines are the first major step toward overhauling the state’s prison parole system under Proposition 57, the ballot measure approved by voters last year that aims to reduce the statewide prison population by 9,500 inmates over the next four years.
If you’ve tried setting goals before and haven’t been successful at achieving them, I’d like to introduce you to a goal-setting method that may bring you more success. It’s called the “SMART” Method of goal setting. Download a free PDF of the S.M.A.R.T. goals map to help keep you on track.
S.M.A.R.T. goals were introduced in 1981 by George T. Doran, a former director of corporate planning for Washington Water Power Company. He published a paper called, “There’s a S.M.A.R.T. Way to Write Management’s Goals and Objectives.” In the paper, he introduced S.M.A.R.T. goals as a tool to create benchmarks to improve the success rate of accomplishing goals.
In any construction project, a general contractor is an absolute must. He is the person who overlooks the smooth functioning of the project. He is responsible for a number of duties, like purchasing the needed equipment, hiring manpower, subcontractors, obtaining licenses etcetera. He understands your specifications about the project and devotes himself towards its timely completion, whilst getting you the best of facilities. This enables you to concentrate on other businesses, without having to worry a lot about the construction.
