Dr Emma Katz, Ph.D., is an internationally-renowned expert in domestic abuse and coercive control, whose work has influenced legislation in the UK and overseas.Coercive control is a form of domestic abuse where perpetrators use a pattern of threats, humiliation or intimation to control and dominate their partner or children, depriving them of independence and isolating them from support. Because coercive control does not always involve physical violence, it has often been under-reported and under-recognised.Emma's research with mothers and children who have survived coercive control carried out against them by children's fathers has transformed understandings of domestic abuse. Her research has shed crucial light on how children are affected by many forms of abuse beyond physical violence against their mothers, including deprivation of resources, loss of autonomy and freedom, and isolation from the outside world.Emma is tireless in raising awareness of coercive control and its impact on children, giving regular training sessions to professionals working with families who have experienced domestic abuse.Follow Emma on Twitter @DrEmmaKatz

Each year the Law Society runs the accreditation program for a select number of areas of law. The program consists of meticulous assessments on both legal knowledge and its application in practice. For accreditation to be conferred the candidate must pass all assessments. To retain their accreditation specialists must demonstrate their commitment to their accreditation through their work and by undertaking additional professional development in their area of accreditation. Specialist Accreditation is held by less than 5% of the profession in New South Wales.  Resources To learn more about Specialist Accreditation, head to: https://www.lawsociety.com.au/specialist-accreditation.

This week we take a look at a startup home automation company, Fluid One. Their goal is to seamlessly connect your actions, your decisions, and your home. Then we go through the network shows and premiere dates. We also read your emails and the week's news.  News: Comcast plans symmetrical multigig service for 2023 Details about upcoming "Chromecast HD" leaked IKEA x Swedish House Mafia record player goes on sale next month Sonos announces long-awaited Sub Mini for $429 Fluid One: Next Generation Smart Home Control and Automation We found a super interesting Kick starter project called Fluid One. It takes home automation into the AR realm and if it works is pretty cool. From the campaign page: At Fluid, we aim to seamlessly connect your actions, your decisions, and your home - making the environment around you its own responsive interface.They are trying to raise $100,000 but at the time of this writing have only secured about $9,500 from 40 backers.  We know what you're thinking. Do we need another Home Automation controller? Probably not a typical one, but this one has some unique features that may appeal to some of you. Most notably, to control a device you simply aim your smartphone at it and the relevant controls appear on your screen. You can also use gestures with the phone like swiping up to turn something on or swipe down to turn it off.  Fluid One also makes setup straight forward as well. You aim your phone at the device, tap it and then select it from automatically discovered devices. This also places an air marker at the location.  There are some aspects of the setup that the developers claim makes it simple but based on our experience some people will find it overwhelming. The whole concept of laying out the home floor plan including furniture placement is very cool and precise. But that will turn some people off.  Setting up Zones and automations as you walk through them are also very cool, but again, many people just want a few lights to turn on at sundown. So the question is who is this system for? Do we need a home automation system this sophisticated?  Smart Device and Phone Compatibility: Fluid Lite comes directly compatible with all Homekit devices. To gain access to even more devices, Fluid One enables control over Homebridge, Home Assistant, and any IR devices, amounting to over 2000+ compatible integrations.  Fluid One will also be fully Matter compatible upon its upcoming release.

A lot of business owners have misconceptions around lines of credit and debt. Credit and debit are a necessary part of growing a business. Once debt has been accumulated, it is important to create a system to repay your debt. I will be going over all the ins and outs of taking accumulating debt to grow your business in this episode.  In today's episode we discuss: Debt is an advance that affords an opportunity to invest in your business that will give you a greater return.  How to use debt and learn how to use it effectively. Recognizing that there is a great distinction between credit card debt and a line of credit. Creating a schedule of repayment as soon as there is any money on the credit card. Allison Bio: Allison C. Williams, Esq., is the Founder and Owner of the Williams Law Group, LLC, with offices in Short Hills and Freehold, New Jersey. She is a Fellow of the American Academy of Matrimonial Lawyers, is Certified by the Supreme Court of New Jersey as a Matrimonial Law Attorney, and is the first attorney in New Jersey to become Board-Certified by the National Board of Trial Advocacy in the field of Family Law.

In 2019, Ms. Williams won the Seminole 100 Award for founding one of the fastest-growing companies among graduates of Florida State University. In 2018, Ms. Williams created Law Firm Mentor, a business coaching service for lawyers. She helps solo and small law firm attorneys grow their business revenues, crush chaos in business and make more money. Through multi-day intensive business retreats, group and one-to-one coaching, and strategic planning sessions, Ms. Williams advises lawyers on all aspects of creating, sustaining, and scaling a law firm business – and specifically, she teaches them the core foundational principles of marketing, sales, personnel management, communications, and money management in law firms. Contacts – Social Media https://www.lawfirmmentor.net/speak-with-a-growth-strategist Snip-Its 00:06:56 (32 Seconds) Now, increasing the line of credit gives you a benefit of decreasing your income to debt ratio, right? So if I have a card and it has a 9000 credit limit and I have spent $3,000, I've used 33% of my credit. However, if I get them to increase that credit limit to 10,000, my credit utilization rate goes down to only 30%. So I've done nothing other than secure more credit, but that will typically trigger an increase in my FICO score, my credit score.

With the overturning of Roe v. Wade, many were quick to suggest adoption as an alternative to abortion. However, the adoption process is a much more timely and costly process than most people are aware of. Today, we discuss the topic of adoption, what people can expect from this process, and the many different challenges and details of adoption not always talked about. Arnold Valdez, Vice President of Foster Care and Residential Services at DePelchin Children's Center, shared their mission of strengthening the lives of children by enhancing their mental health and physical well-being.  They are a non-profit adoption agency that provides a variety of services, including foster care and adoption programs, support services for families, counseling and parenting programs, and residential programs for youth. Family law and adoption attorney Rodney Jones  explains that adoption is a legal process.  The biological rights of both parents have to be terminated before a child is eligible for adoption.  Jones offered his expertise answering a variety of questions regarding the legalities of adoption.  He also has experience representing children in the CPS system and shared how rewarding it is to help lead them to a forever home.  Joy Sewing always knew she wanted to adopt.  She wanted to provide a home and loving environment for a child in need.  Today, Sewing is in the process of adopting two young children, after fostering for three years.  She shares her story, along with the challenges she has faced during the process, and how rewarding it is to see how much the children have grown.  As a foster and adoptive mom, Kristin Finan, saw foster children arrive at her doorstep with nothing but the clothes on their back. She knew they needed more, and co-founded Carrying Hope. Carrying Hope is a non-profit organization that creates “Hope Packs,” backpacks filled with everything a child needs for their first couple days in a new home.

We don't throw large parties, we don't do a lot of damage, we obviously want to keep the space looking professional. And so when a landlord is looking to create a relationship with a business owner, we are desirable, know that going in. Not only are we desirable because of our status as professionals, because we don't just have legal responsibilities under our lease, we have professional responsibilities as licensed attorneys.
