Do You Know Whom Nigella Lawson Is ?
Nigella Lucy Lawson (born 6 January 1960) is an English food writer, journalist and broadcaster. Lawson was born to Nigel Lawson, a former Chancellor of the Exchequer, and Vanessa Salmon, whose family owned the J. Lyons and Co. empire.
After graduating from the University of Oxford, Lawson started to work as a book reviewer and restaurant critic, later becoming the deputy literary editor of The Sunday Times in 1986.
She then embarked upon a career as a freelance journalist, writing for a number of newspapers and magazines.
In 1998, Lawson brought out her first cookery book, How to Eat, which sold 300,000 copies and became a bestseller. She went on to write her second book in 2000, How to be a Domestic Goddess, winning her the British Book Award for Author of The Year.
Lawson's career underwent a significant change in 2000 when she began to host her own cookery series on Channel 4, Nigella Bites, which was accompanied with another bestselling cookery book. The Nigella Bites series proved to be successful, winning Lawson a Guild of Food Writers Award, however her 2005 ITV daytime chat show was met with a negative critical reaction and was cancelled after attracting low ratings. In the United States in 2006, Lawson hosted the Food Network's Nigella Feasts, followed by a three-part BBC Two series, Nigella's Christmas Kitchen, in the United Kingdom. This led to the commissioning of Nigella Express on BBC Two in 2007. Her own cookware range, Living Kitchen, has a value of £7 million, and she has sold more than three million cookery books worldwide.
Renowned for her flirtatious manner of presenting, Lawson has been called the "queen of food porn". She is neither a trained chef nor cook, and has assumed a distinctly relaxed approach to her cooking. Lawson has demonstrated influence as a food commentator, after some products used on her shows saw their sales figures increase.
Does A Young Child Have Any Say In Divorce Proceedings?
A child can express an opinion to the Guardian Ad Litem, but only in Texas do children over the age of 12 have any specific say. You should consider bird nest custody
It’s a form of access or custody where the children stay in the former family residence and it is the parents who rotate in and out separately and on a negotiated schedule.
The children simply live at "home" and the separated or divorced parents take turns living with them there, but never at the same time.
The core element of this arrangement is that each parent maintains a separate residence where they live when it is not their turn at the "bird's nest". When one parent arrives for his/her designated time, the other vacates right away, so as to minimize or eliminate the presence of both at the same time.
At times, bird's nest access can be coupled with specified access with the other parent say, for example, for dinner one night a week.
Sometimes, this form of access or custody will end when the youngest child reaches the age of majority at which time, one parent either buys the other out of their interest, if any, in the former family residence, or it is sold and the proceeds divided pursuant to the matrimonial property regime or separation agreement.
The arrangement can be expensive as it generally requires that three separate residences be maintained, the "nest" and a separate residence for each parent.
The concept is somewhat novel and appears to have as its origin a Virginia case Lamont v Lamont.
In Canada, Greenough v Greenough was a ground-breaker case in that the Court implemented a bird's nest custody order even though it had not been asked for by either party. Justice Quinn, in Greenough stated:
"In Lamont ... the court made a bird’s nest custody arrangement in which the children (aged 3 and 5 years) remained in the home, with the mother staying in the home during the week and the father on the weekend. I think that the benefits of a bird’s nest order are best achieved where the children are able to stay in the matrimonial home, particularly if it has been the only residence that they have known....
"Time and time again I have seen cases (and this is one) where the children are being treated as Frisbees. In general, parents do not seem to appreciate the gross disruption to which children are subjected where one of the parents has frequent access. In this regard, I do not believe there must be evidence that the children are suffering before the court is free to act. To me, it is a matter of common sense. At the risk of falling prey to simplistic generalities, I am of the view that, given a choice, I do not see why anyone would select a living arrangement which involved so much movement from house to house."
The biggest hurdle is finding an attorney who works for you and not to just drain your wallet.
If you want to learn how to do all this go to Dads House in Yahoo Groups. There's an educational manual in the file section that can teach you what you need to know. The organization it came from is defunct due to attorneys that tried to take it over and make money from it.

Can You Receive A Workers Comp Settlement Without A Lawyer?
My Husband Has Been Receiving Workers Comp For The Past Year Without The Services Of A Lawyer, The Doctors Now Want Him To Have Back Surgery, He Is Still Unsure, We Just Dont Know What Is The Next Step. Do We Have To Get A Lawyer?
Hiring an Attorney is a tricky issue in workers comp cases. In the EARLY part of your husband's case, it appears OK that he did not need an attorney, because workers comp was paying his benefits. Because he NOW needs surgery, it can get very tricky & ugly in an instant.
Here is WHY.
The insurance company KNOWS that they must put up more money for the surgery, AND they will likely be required to pay for your husbands PPD (Permanency benefits). THAT may mean lifetime benefits - depending on which state has jurisdiction over his claim.
Whenever you have a serious injury, your claim has been denied, you need surgery, etc., it would be wise to at least consult with an attorney who specializes in worker comp cases.
Your husband is lucky that workers comp has paid his benefits - up until now. EVEN if they approve hsi surgery, you must MAKE SURE that he STILL gets all the benefits he is entitled to receive. Because he needs surgery, the workers comp carrier knows that the cost of their claim will skyrocket, because of the medical bills, and permanency benefits, with the lost time.
Because of this, many of them may try to find ways to either delay the surgery or deny the surgery.
Here are situations to considering consulting with an attorney who specializes in workers comp:
1 - Your claim has been denied - and the workers comp carrier refuses to tell you why.
2 - You have been out of work for a week, and no one is telling you whether you will be paid.
3 - You need surgery now, and your claim has not been accepted.
4 - Your injury is a serious one - falling from a scaffold, falling thru the stairs, being run over by a car while working, inhaling poisonous fumes, etc.
5 - You are being followed by a surveillance person, and you do not know why.
6 - You are not sure about how to file a workers comp claim, and / or do not know the legal deadlines before which you must file.
7 - The workers comp injury involves the death of your family member.
8 - The injury involves electrucution.
9 - Your claim was initially accepted, but NOW you need surgery, and they are denying your claim.
Here is a Web Blog that has a lot of info that may help you.
The Blog is at http://www.GettingWorkersComp.Blogspot.c...
The article is called "Hiring an Attorney" or something like that.
You may also want to check out another article on that Blog called
"BEFORE Getting Workers Comp To Settle", because it also talks about future medicals, etc.
Future Medicals is something that you must carefully consider, because you can bet the workers comp insurance company will be looking at it too.

What Do Lawyers Do Exactly?
So I'M Thinking About Becoming A Lawyer When I Grow Up. But I Don'T Know What They Do Exactly. Does Anyone Know What A Lawyer Actually Does? Also I Heard That Some Lawyers Make Good Money. Why Is That? How Do I Become A Lawyer That Makes Good Money?
Look for work.
Choosing a career is one of life's most important and difficult decisions. But knowing what your expectations are, and then comparing them to the realities will help you make educated decisions.
There are more attorneys than there are legal employment positions. We simply already have way too many Legal Professionals. AND the legal profession is dramatically changing: it is in absolute CRISIS! Job searching in this vocational field has changed >>DRAMATICALLY<< in the last five years. And, every year, more and more people graduate from law school, but there are fewer and fewer jobs. Even the largest and most reputable law firms are experiencing unprecedented cutbacks. I don't expect the situation to improve in the coming years.....
Be aware of what you are proposing on getting yourself into. Please do more research first. Reminder: We are STILL in a World-wide Recession. Obviously, economic conditions affect the number of jobs available. Consider career paths that have available JOBS.<< Even in a Recovery, there are some jobs that just won't return - the field of Law won't make a comeback. Too many things have changed in this vocational field.
Law is a more demanding profession than most people realize. It is not like what you see on TV.
Cost of law school to be lawyer, approx $150,000+. Be prepared to take on a LOT of debt, if becoming an attorney is your "true", ultimate goal!!!<<<
School loans are "non-dischargeable debts" - which means you cannot just write them off in bankruptcies (except in extremely rare cases).
Now... the law schools know this, but they won't tell you the truth >that the job market/economy is just SATURATED with way too many Legal Professionals. Instead the schools will feed you a fairytale and will LIE to you. The root of the problem is we already have too many law schools. We are STILL in a Recession, and the schools are fighting for their own survival - they will tell students anything to get to the students' money. (Which is why they won't tell you the truth about the job market for the field of Law.) And these schools continue to recruit and churn out even more graduates.............Remember>>> law schools are BUSINESSES - their TOP concern is making money for themselves.
>>>>>THE #1 MOST IMPORTANT THING (and I can't stress this enough>>>): You ESPECIALLY have to beware of the BOGUS, INFLATED law school salary/job stats given out by >law schools< (AND by the U.S. Bureau of Labor)!!***<<<<<
If you don't believe me, then:
**Check out these websites:
(A link to a website does not constitute endorsement.)
**do a SEARCH here on Yahoo Answers to see what other posters are saying about the current status of the field of Law.
**Call some local law firms - ask to speak to the Manager of Human Resources - ask them if they are hiring; ask them what they think about future job availability in the field of Law. Ask them if they have any current open positions. Ask them how many resumes they receive when they advertise ONE open position. (It is ususally approximately 300 resumes are received for each open position advertised.)
**Talk to recent law graduates. Ask them what success they are having finding employment opportunities.<<<<<<<<<<<<
**Read these books:
>"So You Want to be a Lawyer?" by Marianne Calabrese and Susanne Calabrese (ISBN 0-88391-136-1)
>"CourtRoom 302" by Steve Bogira (ISBN 10: 0-679-75206-4); and
>"Ultimate Punishment" by Scott Turow (ISBN 0-374-12873-1.
If you want a JOB when you are done with your studies, consider and look into the fields of: >>>Healthcare<<<, Information Technology, Law ENFORCEMENT, environmentalism, emergency planning, accounting, education, entertainment, utilities, home-car-commercial-industrial repairs, vice industries, clergy, and/or debt collection. I spoke to a career counselor from Jobs and Family Services, and HE told me that these areas are where the jobs are, and future job opportunities/availability....and scholarships.
There are MANY issues of working in the vocational field of Law. My answer is an attempt to give you a realistic way of looking at this career, and I have told you things that most will not tell you about the profession - at first. Be careful, do your research, and have your eyes open wide.
(This is based on my current knowledge, information, belief, and life experiences. This was intended as personal opinion, and not intended to be used as legal advice. Please be careful and do your research.<<< You DID ask the question here on Y/A. I am just trying to help you.)
Question Regarding Felony Charges?
I Was Recently Charged With Grandtheft Felony By The Police Officer, And I Returned The Goods That I Took. Since This Was My First Offense And I Had Never Gotten Into Anything Like This Before, The Police Officer Didn'T Arrest Me, Just Had A Talk, Asked Me Why I Did It And Everything, And Filed The Criminal Charge. I Am Waiting For Something In The Mail, I Guess From District Attorney. Is There Any Way They Will Drop The Felony To Misdemeanor If Im Good Student, And Haven'T Had Any Prior Convictions, Or Will They Give Me Felony, Then I Have To Hire A Lawyer And Ask Him To Get My Felony Charges Dropped To Misdemanor, I Dont Want This To Affect My Career, It Was A Stupid Mistake And Im Remorseful For My Actions. This Is In Florida. The Police Officer Claimed I Will Only Get Something Like Probation And Community Service, And Hopefully No Jail Time. Do Not Know How To Proceed, Anxiously Waiting For Something In The Mail
Hey. The police officer is not the prosecutor, so do not listen to what will possibly happen. No one knows what a judge or prosecutor will do. Never go to court with a charge like this without an attorney. Always prepare for the worst. Get an attorney. It should not be that much $$. It's worth it. The attorney is most likely aquainted with the DA and most of the judges. Since it is your first offense, any competent attorney can get what is called a deferred adjudication, which basically means if you stay out of trouble for one year, they will dismiss the charge a year later after you have proven that you have stayed out of trouble. If not that, he should be able to get it knocked down to a municipal violation which can be expunged from your record a few years later.
Just call a couple attorneys. They are familiar. Should not cost over $1,000; $500 possibly. It's simple stuff. Good luck & Stay out of trouble!
