Lawyer-Lighthouse Lists Lawyers By Specialties

Lawyers help clients with many different legal needs. Some may help with family law, some may specialize in commercial or business law, some may help draw up a contract, and some may need a lawyer for a workers compensation case. There may also be the need for a lawyer that will go into court when a client breaks the law. Each lawyer goes to school to learn about the type of law they wish to specialize in. They then go to work for a law firm in their specialty. Some may continue on in their specialty as a career but some may choose another field in the end. Lawyers are highly educated to help their clients with their legal needs. Lawyer-lighthouse is a website that lists different lawyers and their specialties so you can contact the type lawyer you need.

Ross Abelow is a lawyer that is on the lawyer-lighthouse website list. He works hard to help with clients that need contracts, business forms, or a trip to the courthouse. He also works hard to help families with their needs such as wills and legal proceedings related to families. If Ross is your family attorney he will help your family with any legal needs.

The animals on the city streets are in need of a home. When a dog or cat is on the street they are usually searching for food or a warm place to sleep. If they smell food, they will hunt for it. If it is in a trash can, they may knock it over. Dogs that are left on their own on the streets may even end up with sickness or diseases that may be unsafe for people. Animal shelters are too full to house most of the dogs on the streets so they have to be euthanized. Because this is not something Ross agrees with, he started a go fund me page to help animal shelters. Ross hopes the fund will raise enough money to help the shelters buy food and blankets. If there is enough money raised, Ross hopes the shelter will purchase medicine and other supplies to support the local homeless pet population. Every dollar raised help. Donations are greatly appreciated by the local animal shelters.

George Soros Advises European Union to be Cautious in Addressing Refugees Problems

The self-established billionaire George Soros has cautioned the European Union of an impending danger of its collapse if it fails to allow massive injection of cash to address the refugee crisis. Soros ascertained that a humanitarian calamity was likely to occur in Greece through an essay published in New York Review of Books. In the publication, George Soros pressed on the need to resettle the legitimate refugees in Europe. According to Soros, the EU leaders should seek massive funding instead of relying on the limited funds it accumulates on a yearly basis. Massive spending is a strategy the EU should employ to address the refugee menace effectively.

Refugee resettlement plan

Millions of refugees escaped from Africa and the Middle East on http://www.nytimes.com/topic/person/george-soros, and relocated to Europe in 2015. Most of them were lured to the European nations following promises of a better life. Currently, a refugee policy has been implemented, and it will address the needs of legitimate refugees. Refugees who will relocate to Greece Illegally will be returned to Turkey in case their asylum application is fake on http://latino.foxnews.com/latino/politics/2016/03/10/billionaire-smackdown-george-soros-funds-effort-to-stop-trump-mobilize-latinos/. The EU will proceed to transfer one Syrian refugee residing in Turkish camps in place of every individual sent back.

According to the essay written by George Soros, Europe can handle between 300,000 and 500,000 refugees each year comfortably. However, he proceeded to assure genuine asylum seekers that their issues would also be addressed. The EU will require approximately $34 billion each year to implement the refugee resettlement program effectively.

Therefore, he strongly advises the EU to ensure it has close to $34 billion before proceeding with the implementation process. Soros called for a revision of Multiannual Financial Framework of the European Commissions and adjustment of the VAT contributions. However, urgent separate funding will be required to deal with refugee menace.

Yeonmi Park’s Unbelievable Tale Of Survival

Yeonmi Park has captivated people all across the world with her harrowing tale of survival. Park was only thirteen, when she and her mother escaped North Korea by crossing the Yalu River into China. From there, they went on a dangerous journey to South Korea that lasted years. Yeonmi and her mother were forced to endure violence, rape, and constant fear of death during their fight for freedom. Shortly after their escape, Yeonmi’s father joined them. Unfortunately, he didn’t get to experience what they’d tried so hard to achieve and died from untreated colon cancer before they had arrived to their destination. Before young Yeonmi and her mother were able to escape North Korea, her older sister Eunmi had left to escape on her own. During their travel to South Korea they attempted to find Eunmi, but were unsuccessful. They believed they would never see her again.
After arriving in South Korea, Park began to speak publicly about her life in North Korea. In April 2014, South Korean intelligence informed the Parks that they’d found Eunmi and were reunited.

Yeonmi Park has since written her own memoir, Amazon best selling book titled “In Order to Live: A North Korean Girl’s Journey to Freedom.” But, not everyone believes Park’s harrowing tale. Pyongyang has even made a video that attempts to discredit parts of her story. It discussed in an article published by Reason.com, Yeonmi Park’s North Korean Defector Story. But, she says any inconsistences are because of her grasp of the English language. One thing is certain, it takes a very brave woman to survive what she has and to speak openly about it.

The software was created with the purpose helping business professionals throughout the world communicate with one another more easier, faster, efficiently, and certainly without the need on both being present in one mutual location.

The CEO and founder of Talk Fusion, Bob Reina says he first got the idea of such a piece of software when he was at an open house looking for potential real estate to move into in North Carolina in 2004. It was while at that open house viewing the property that he decided to record a short video showing off the house, seeking his family’s opinions and approval. At the time it is noted that Reina was a user of the email giant AOL. When he went to upload and send the video he was not able to because AOL did not support video nor did it have the capacity and capabilities to send such a format. It was at that moment that the idea of Talk Fusion was born. Bob contacted his long time tech buddy, and together over the course of three years they they perfected Talk Fusion and officially released in 2007.

They ensure that the said company is following a code of ethics and operates with a degree of high standards. With this backing and recognition from the Direct Selling Association, Talk Fusion has grown into a premier communications piece of software throughout the world.

Talk Fusion under the realm of Bob Reina is sure to continue to expand in the world of technology.
