first_img August 15, 2005 Regular News It is important to practice under your real name It is important to practice under your real name Lori S. Holcomb Bar UPL Counsel While it may be true that a rose by any other name is still a rose, an attorney practicing under a name other than as admitted is a rule violation.Rule 1-3.3 of the Rules Regulating The Florida Bar requires each member of The Florida Bar to designate an official Bar name and mandates that “the official Bar name of each member of The Florida Bar shall be used in the member’s practice of law.”How is your official Bar name designated? It is the name that you use with the Florida Board of Bar Examiners when applying to become a member of The Florida Bar. How can you find out what your official Bar name is? Look at the certificate you got from the Supreme Court of Florida when you became licensed or at the card you got from The Florida Bar with your Bar number on it. Can’t find those? You can find your records on the Bar’s Web site, floridabar.org. Just click on Find a Lawyer and put in your Bar number. Or you can call the Bar’s Membership Records Department (850-561-5832) and give them your Bar number, and they can tell you how your name is listed with The Florida Bar.What does it mean that you shall practice under that name? Just what is says. If you are licensed as Cynthia R. Jones, you can’t practice as Cynthia C. Jones or Cindy Jones. If you are licensed as Robert Smith-Barnes, you can’t practice as Robert Barnes or Bob Smith-Barnes or Bob Barnes. If you are licensed as Cruella D. Ville, you can’t practice as C. D. Ville. Whatever name you are licensed under must be the name that appears on business cards, letterhead, office doors, pleadings, the telephone book, and any other place your name appears.Why is this a problem? Besides the fact that the rules require it, when your clients or potential clients call for information on you and your name is put in the system, your records will not come up. The caller is then transferred to the Unlicensed Practice of Law Department because you, or your name, appears to be practicing law without a license. This could result in action by The Florida Bar. At the very least, you’ll get a call or letter asking about your status. Not only are you opening yourself up to a possible letter from The Florida Bar, you are missing out on a source for new clients. You are listed on the Bar’s Web site and in the directory edition of the Bar Journal under your record name. If you are practicing under a different name, you decrease the chance that potential clients will be able to find you. So when cousin Bill tells his friend Jim to call Cindy Jones, Jim won’t be able to find you.Okay, you’ve decided after all of these years as practicing as C.D. Ville you want to change your record Bar name to C.D. Ville. How do you change it? Rule 1-3.3 states that the change can only be made “upon request to and approval” of the Supreme Court. How do you do that? According to the Supreme Court’s Web site (www.florida supremecourt.org), you send a letter to the clerk’s office requesting that your name be changed on the roll of attorneys. You should include your old name, your new name, and your Bar number. You should also include a self-addressed stamped envelope for return of the order approving the change. The same procedure applies if you have a change in last name due to marriage or divorce.So, it really boils down to be or not to be, for Bar purposes anyway. I once heard that change is good for the soul. In this case, it’s good for your business as well.last_img read more

Carr completed passes to eight different receivers, and has demonstrated when teams roll coverages toward Darren Waller (two catches, 52 yards), he is capable of distributing the ball elsewhere.

first_imgVolunteers have a big role in helping Ethembeni Children’s Home care for children infected with or affected by HIV/Aids. The Go The Extra Mile campaign makes it even easier for them to get involved.Founded by The Salvation Army in 1995, Ethembeni Children’s Home in Doornfontein, Johannesburg, is a refuge for children from in and around the inner city. (Image: Mathiba MolefeMathiba MolefeIn the heart of Johannesburg’s bustling inner city lies a sanctuary for children either infected with or affected by HIV/Aids. It is a place where those left destitute by the endemic find refuge, a place that was fittingly named Ethembeni, meaning “place of hope” in isiXhosa.Volunteers, many of whom are part of the Go the Extra Mile (GEM) campaign, visit the safe haven weekly, as they did on the weekend of 8 and 9 April. Ethembeni is in Doornfontein on the eastern edge of the CBD.The group of volunteers arrived early in the morning, bright-eyed and ready to get stuck into their work helping the nurses and other staff at the home. When they weren’t busy spending quality time with the children, either playing games or feeding them, the volunteers also lent a hand in the general upkeep of the home and its facilities.“It’s nice to know that there are people out there who are willing to take the time to come and help out here at the home,” said Lucia Ntombela, the site manager at Ethembeni. “Nowadays people don’t have much time; people are busy. For them to take that hour or two hours to come and volunteer knowing that you won’t get paid. I really admire them.“It’s really beautiful to see, and we have a lot of people to thank for helping us.”Founded by The Salvation Army in 1995, Ethembeni now serves as a home to nearly 60 children from in and around Johannesburg’s inner city.“Some of the children arrive here and it’s difficult for them to smile. But as time goes on they slowly open up and start smiling again,” she said.It is a place where those left destitute by the endemic find refuge, a place that was fittingly named Ethembeni, meaning “place of hope” in isiXhosa. (Image: Mathiba Molefe)Go the Extra MileGEM is a social development drive that was created to get people actively involved in the development of organisations and initiatives that aim to improve people’s lives, such as Ethembeni.By rewarding volunteers for their involvement, GEM hopes the incentive will drive more and more people to take ownership of the societies they live in and take a more hands-on approach to improving them.“We receive incentives and rewards for so many things, such as shopping at a certain place, or flying a certain airline,” explained Camilo Ramada, co-founder of GEM with David Shields.“Why then not offer incentives for the really important things, such as taking care of babies, helping to paint a school, working in a community garden, making food for the homeless, or cleaning-up neighbourhoods?”Encouraging active citizenship among people in South Africa is one of Play Your Part’s key objectives and partnering and supporting initiatives such as GEM is part of the effort to do just that.Volunteers can select one or more of the campaigns listed in the app’s database. Once the good deed is done, they receive a reward via the app, called a GEM.These GEMs can be redeemed for a range of products such as airtime, data, pre-paid electricity or movie tickets.Get involvedFor more information on how to get involved in your community and to keep track of the activities in and around your area, visit GEM’s website or download the application.Go out and take action, get actively involved in turning South Africa into a better place for all who call it home.last_img read more

first_imgShare Facebook Twitter Google + LinkedIn Pinterest By Matt Hutcheson, CCA, Product Manager, Seed Consultants, Inc. Typically, this is the time of year when soybeans may begin to show symptoms of Soybean Cyst Nematode (SCN) damage. SCN is a parasitic roundworm that feeds on the soybean root system. The cyst stage of the nematode’s life cycle is when the female nematode is filled with eggs. Cysts are visible throughout the summer on soybean roots and will appear as small, white, and lemon-shaped. After the female matures, these cysts are hard to see. When trying to identify SCN presence on soybean roots, it is important not to confuse cysts with Rhizobium nodules (where N fixation takes place). How can you determine if SCN is causing damage and yield loss to your soybeans? Injury symptoms include yellowing and stunting of plants. These symptoms may appear in patches of a field. These patches may grow from year to year; especially in the direction a field is tilled. Symptoms may become worse when plants are under other stresses in addition to SCN injury and can be confused with other issues, such as nutrient deficiencies. Soil in fields where SCN damage is suspected should be sampled and sent to a lab for analysis. The population level of SCN will determine the specific practices required to manage the problem.Depending on the population level and the amount of damage being done, growers will have a few management options to consider. Planting soybean varieties with resistance to SCN is critical in fields where the parasite is present. Rotation away from soybeans to a non-host crop (such as corn) can also lessen the amount of SCN injury. In high population fields growers should rotate to a non-host crop for multiple years. It is also important to effectively control weeds, some of which can be SCN hosts as well. The list adapted from OSU Extension Fact Sheet AC-39-10 lists other host plants of SCN.From Table 3, Other Hosts of SCN:•Alsike clover •Hemp sesbania •Bird’s-foot trefoil •Common and mouseear chickweed •Green beans •Dry beans •Common mullein •Common and hairy vetch •Henbit •Cowpea •Milk and wood vetch •Crimson clover •Pokeweed •Crown vetch •Common purslane •Lespedezas •Spotted geranium •Pea •Wild mustard •White and yellow lupine •Purple deadnettle •Sweet clover •Field pennycress •Shepherd’s-purselast_img read more

first_imgIvan Perisic admits it was painful missing out on Man Utd moveby Freddie Taylora month agoSend to a friendShare the loveBayern Munich winger Ivan Perisic has revealed it was “painful” to miss out on a move to Manchester United. The Croatian was on the cusp of being signed from Inter Milan by Jose Mourinho two years ago.”How close was I going there? Very close,” he told The Athletic . “It was an amazing thing for me when Jose called me. It was difficult to say no to him. In fact, I really, really wanted to join him and play for United.”It was a dream of mine to play in all the big leagues. But it didn’t happen. It was painful for me. But I don’t want to go into the details. I only found out myself the real reasons two years later.” About the authorFreddie TaylorShare the loveHave your saylast_img read more
