Work Hour Laws

Work hours, pay issues, questions, oh my! As a small business owner or manager, the requirements governing meal break laws and other compensation issues can seem trickier than traveling the Yellow Brick Road. My FAQ guide to work hours and pay issues, which are governed by the Fair Labor Standards Act (FLSA), will help you sort it all out:

How many hours are required for full-time and part-time employment?

Full-time or part-time employment rules are generally determined by the employer and not by Department of Labor laws.

Are there laws about compensating for breaks and meal periods?

Although the FLSA doesn’t require employers to give time off for breaks or meals, some states may have their own meal break laws. When employers do offer short breaks, federal law dictates that employees must be compensated. Work break laws also say that employers do not need to compensate for meal breaks.

Are there Department of Labor laws regarding flexible schedules?

The FSLA does not govern flexible work schedules, which are typically defined as those that allow personnel

A Career In Law

There are certain characteristics that one needs to have to succeed in a career in law. You should assess yourself before actually enrolling into any institution. To have a clear idea, you can visit local courts, attend trials, talk to lawyers and observe the functioning of the legal system. Observing lawyers and judges at work will enable you to identify some of the skills, knowledge and values necessary for a career in law. You can even get advice from a career counselor.

Law is the field for those:

  • Having outstanding and above average independent learning skills such as reading, listening, writing, talking and analysis
  • Having excellent verbal, public speaking, arguing and debating skills
  • Having a high level of patience and confidence.

Before beginning the application process, consider carefully if a law degree is right for you based on these attributes. You may also need pre-law courses for admission to particular programs in law.

Preparing For Law School

The field should be explored through research, investigation of resources on the Internet, discussion with law students, and counseling. Joining

The Future of Law School

The demand for law school and the government subsidization of school led to the growth of the school industry, aided by publications like U.S. News with its ludicrous school rankings. Schools became financial profit centers of universities (like successful sports programs) and in many cases were required to kick back money to the central university administration to help underwrite the rest of the less profitable parts of the university. The costs were passed onto recent graduates and, ultimately, the legal consumer in the form of high legal fees, especially in corporate law.

Who benefited? One of the beneficiaries was the law school faculty. The typical faculty member at a decent law school has next to no practical experience. The person went to a top law school, practiced for a year or two, and then went out into the legal academy job market at the age of 28 or 29 to get a faculty job. A few law professors keep up their practical skills by performing pro bono legal work, or by consulting on the side.

The Law of Attraction Hoax

My intention is not to criticize other approaches to manifestation, but rather, to call into question the inconsistencies. Why is it that the Law of Gravity doesn’t require us to change our subconscious beliefs, but the Law of Attraction does? Other “Spiritual Laws” don’t even require changes of subconscious beliefs to easily see the cause and effect relationship: Law of Choices, Law of Action, Law of Balance, Law of Integrity, Law of Compassion to name a few. None of them require changing your subconscious beliefs to see results. They only require being aware that they exist and paying attention to how they manifest (interesting word, huh?) in your life when you take action in alignment with them. So why must we change our beliefs for the “Law of Attraction” to work?

Today, I will attempt to answer that question. First though, I want to say that I willingly use the term “Law of Attraction” because it’s an easy way to communicate a simple idea that has gone mainstream, and that idea is this:

When we live in conscious awareness, we can experience life the way we want to. In other words we can manifest what we

The Secret Law

Law of attraction is common to most people, but this law does not work in solitude. So if you are seated there wondering why you are not getting best results in your life even though you are using this law, it is because there are some basic laws which are lacking. You have the opportunity to live in abundance and you will discover that the only obstacle separating you from your success is your mind. Your mind can be your biggest enemy if you do not condition it to think right. Some of the laws that work side by side with attraction law include the following;

Working with the law is the first law. Humans live in two worlds; there is the seen and the unseen world. Events and circumstances in our lives takes place in the seen world but that is not where they originate. In working with the law, you will be able to distinguish between the two types of human thoughts. Grasp this truth and you will have grasped the reason behind success and failure in life. The second law is the law of thinking. Everyone is able to think, but constructive thinking takes

State Gun Laws

Not surprisingly, state gun laws vary greatly from state to state. Most gun laws focus on three categories: (1) laws prohibiting the possession of firearms by certain people; (2) laws regulating the sale and transfer of firearms; and (3) the possession of firearms in public places.

  • State laws prohibiting the purchase or possession of firearms

Every state except Vermont has state laws that ban the transfer or sale of firearms to a convicted felon. In most states, the gun laws use the traditional definition of felony which include crimes that are punishable by more than one year of incarceration. Some states have additional specified crimes, including misdemeanors, that will also prevent people from possessing firearms. For example, in Indiana, persons with convictions for resisting arrest may not possess a firearm. Overall, twenty-three states have gun laws that include some misdemeanors as crimes that will prohibit the transfer, purchase or possession of a firearm.

  • State laws regulating the sale and transfer of firearms

The Brady Act is a federal law that requires all federally licensed firearms dealers (FFLs) to conduct background checks on all potential buyers of firearms. However, it is estimated that 40 percent

Law Practice Management Software

Law practice management software provides lawyers with an effective and convenient way of managing their clients and other pertinent case information such as documents, contacts and calendars. This can also be used by law practitioners to share important information with other attorneys within the firm. Since law schools basically do not teach law students all the needed business skills to manage a law firm, most law offices have heavily relied on technology to aid them in the process as well as to reduce any unforeseen clerical errors. According to the American Bar Association or ABA, the majority of legal malpractice claims can be attributed to deadline and calendar-related errors. Hence, most law firms have invested considerably in their very own software in order to save the firm considerable amount of money, making a law practice management software an ideal investment for any law firm. This specific tool, when used effectively, can be a huge contributing factor to the success of any law firm. This will enable a law office to reduce the number of callbacks everyday since they don’t need to look for physical files in their large archive.

Online Law Tuition

There are a number of reasons for this interesting phenomenon. First online law tuition has the benefit of flexibility. Tutors and students often have busy schedules and it is much easier to work around those schedules when there is no need to be in a fixed location. There is also much time and expense saved without having to travel. Secondly, as any private LLB tutor knows, there are only a certain number of customers in any fixed place. The benefit of online law tuition is that it allows any LLB tutor to reach outside of their location. The whole globe is the market for the online savvy private law tutor. Third, there has been a proliferation of various tools in recent times to help private law tutors with their online law tuition services. These tools include screen sharing, uploading documents such as essays and dissertations for the private tutor to check through, and interactive whiteboards. Although some of these tools may seem unfamiliar to you now, they may soon become common place to all law tutors who ply their trade in the digital realm.

The average LLB tutor will of course benefit from these advances, but it

Employment Law

One of the most important areas to consider in business law is employment law. If you don’t comply with all the employment laws and regulations, it is highly likely that you will end up in lots of trouble! There are different laws that actually rule the employment basis of both the regular employees and the contract employees of a business. Some of the employment business laws that have to be met by you are FLSA, the Fair Labor Standards Act, The Immigration Reform and Control Act of 1986, Americans with Disabilities Act, the Civil Rights Act of 1966 and the Equal Pay Act of 1963. However, these laws are not connected to the various state employment business laws that you may find to your business! These laws are a different thing altogether. To confirm that your business meets all the employment laws, it is always better to checkup with your HR department.

To run a business, it is important to have a business permit or a license. If you do not have one, there is a high possibility of you having to shutdown your business and to pay hefty fines and penalties. Moreover, in addition to federal

Types of Law

Pirates, Piracy and the Law

As piracy is a crime their must be in existence specific laws on the subject. Like all criminal laws the laws regarding piracy serve to define what actions or combination of action or omissions would constitute piracy. Like all laws the laws relating to piracy have a source. The Source for laws includes custom, statue and treaties. The law also provides for finality. Laws sometimes have exceptions the exception to the general law om piracy is privateering. Finally the law of piracy provides procedures for the prosecutes pirates and for the alleged pirate to defend against those charges.

Laws and Concepts

The laws and concepts of a century underlined determine and define the operative dynamics of that century, human and societal operations with respect to life’s demands in virtually every area. In the absence of hypothetical laws and concepts, humanity is compelled to operate as blind horses without governing principles and ideologies to order her operation. In a nut-shell, laws determine human and societal operations. There are four types of laws; human, natural, Divine and social laws.

Human laws: These are principles or stipulated standards made by men to order the behavior of individuals and to determine the operative dynamics of a setup, society, nation or the world. In a setup, human laws may take the form of rules and regulations. While in a society or nation, human laws may take the form of constitutions of government, legislation or judicial opinions.

Natural laws: These are forces operating in nature defining the operative dynamics of the universe in relation to the earth’s demands. Natural laws are equally known as universal laws, e.g. the law of gravity.

Divine laws: These are absolute principles which govern existence and determine life’s flow, rendering obligatory the consequences of ’cause and effect’.

Subsidiary Laws

 I can’t tell you in detail here (that would take way too long) but I can summarize them for you and hopefully get you excited about something that has not only helped me, but countless others such as:

  1. The Law of Thinking – “As a man thinketh, so he is”. We all have in effect two levels of thoughts: conscious thought and a constant stream of sub-conscious thought. This Law helps you understand how to program your unconscious thoughts so they will reach out to the universe to find ways to achieve your goals. Likewise this Law will help you not to fear every negative thought that may pass your conscious mind.
  2. The Law of Supply – Sometimes know as the Law of Demand, this Law is the act of expressing our wants and desires whether this be food, money, etc. Some people confuse this with Greed. Is it greed for the seed in the soil to want more and more sunlight, water and food? Of course not, nor should it be for you to desire more in your life either.
  3. The Law of Receiving – Learning this Law is understanding that when you Attract the things you

The Laws of Wellness

All of which has led to this moment-the time when I offer the universe Ardell’s two laws of REAL wellness.

Ardell’s 1st Law of REAL Wellness: Random Chance, Natural Selection and Contingencies Trump All Else

Life’s largest events often follow random, seemingly inconsequential small actions of which we remain unaware. Secular rational freethinkers place stock in knowledge, commitment, reason and persistence in shaping and fine-tuning lifestyle habits. We embrace perspectives and behaviors on matters existential and otherwise designed to render positive states of enjoyment and well-being. We consciously seek happiness, freedom, physical fitness, love, mutually satisfying relationships and multiple skills. What matters most, what affects our successes and outcomes, appears more or less to be under our field of control. Alas, this functional and preferred way of thinking is largely illusory. There are three far more consequential realities not under your influence in any way. Furthermore, these three factors render the quality and duration of your existence unpredictable and unknowable. They are: 1) random chance or fortune; 2) natural selection; and 3) contingencies.

Ardell’s 2nd Law of REAL Wellness: Relative to Ardell’s 1st Law of REAL wellness, other REAL wellness laws don’t amount to much.


The Law of Attraction

This article aims to debunk the seven biggest myths currently circulating about the Law of Attraction and bring some clarity to the subject.

1. The Law of Attraction is magic

The Myth: “Law of Attraction advocates will tell you that all you have to do is think positively and the stuff you want will just come to you. Obviously this is wrong, since things like money, cars and houses don’t just appear out of thin air.”

The Myth Debunked: No one with a true understanding of the Law of Attraction has ever claimed that if you just think a positive thought, a house with a million dollars on the kitchen table and a Ferrari in the driveway will just drop out of the sky right in front of you. This is usually a quote used by people trying to claim that the Law of Attraction is a scam. But the quote isn’t true. That isn’t how the Law of Attraction works at all. The Law of Attraction doesn’t just literally drop stuff in your lap. It brings you meetings with just the right people at the right time, brilliant ideas and coincidences. It’s your job to pay

The Forgotten Laws

People can live a fulfilling life achieving what they want to achieve if they live in harmony with these laws.

  • The Law of Thinking

The law of thinking dictates that we can only attract what we think. By changing your conscious thought patterns, which is your ruling state, you will allow yourself to effectively change the result to what you want. How far a person can go or how great the success a person can have, depends on the thinking. In order to achieve big success, a person has to think big. When you think success, you will attract success.

  • The Law of Supply

The law of supply depicts that the universe is a source of unlimited supply. It is enough for everyone. If we focus on abundance, our feeling, emotions and actions eventually attract abundance into our live. It is possible to achieve success in any area you are doing if you release yourself from the belief of scarcity. The universe does not restrict or limit on what we could achieve, but we do if we allow it.

  • The Law of Attraction

The law of attraction essentially is about what we

Universal Laws

Law 1 – The Law of Divine Oneness

The first law of the universe is the law of divine oneness, which means that we are all connected. Our every action will affect another person in some way, whether this is happening directly or indirectly.

Law 2 – The Law of Vibration

The concept of the law of vibration is that everything in the universe vibrates. We are all connected at the lowest level to one another, though we may be vibrating at a different speed and frequency. A negative thought process will produce a negative vibration, whereas a positive thought process will produce a positive vibration.

Law 3 – The Law of Action

This law depicts that in order to make something happen, you have to take action. You must take the actions that support your thoughts, feelings and dream within you to fulfil your desires. Success doesn’t just happen, but it will happen when you put your effort and being persistence.

Law 4 – The Law of Correspondence

The outer world corresponds to your inner world. Your experience in life is merely a reflection of your mindset. This means that

Laws of the Ego

First, let’s discuss the basic characteristics of the ego’s operating system. No matter which brand of ego you purchase, all of them are going to behave within these parameters since they are locked in place by the ego’s laws. Regular maintenance is needed and is nothing more than repeated judgments which keep the chaos in perfect working condition. The ego has needs. God has no needs. Knowing what the ego has done with that mad idea is the laws of the ego, also known as the Laws of Chaos.

1 – Law of Ego: The ego gives to get because you need salvation, denied by God, and now it must come from others. This is a hidden agenda in everything the ego does because it denies the Law of Heaven that giving and receiving are the same.

2 – Law of Death: The ego views sin as punishable by death and by dying, your sins are gone and you are free from God’s vengeance. This is the ego’s solution to the Law of Creation about ideas not leaving their source. Separation means leaving source and death is salvation from that sin.

3 – Law of

Civil Law Vs Common Law

The term civil law derives from the Latin word ius civile, the law applicable to all Roman citizens. This was established in the sixteenth century. Europe was the first to adopt this law and almost all of Europe taught this at all their universities. Civil law is considered codified. Each civil law country has their own codes to determine the different punishments for each of the categories of law. Some examples of these codes are procedural, substantive, and penal. Procedural law determines what actions constitutes a criminal act, substantive law establishes which are required of criminal or civil prosecution, and penal law decides the proper penalties. It is the judge’s job to gather the facts of the case and distinguish the correct codes that apply to the case.

The main countries that civil law is in today are China, Japan, Germany, France, and Spain. Each of these countries has a written constitution. One major difference between civil law and common law is that it is required for the country to always have a written constitution. On the other hand common law doesn’t always have one. An issue that one can argue is that civil law is not

Spiritual Laws

The Seven Universal or Hermetic laws are:

  • The Law of Mentalism — Also known as the Law of Mind or the Law of Spirit. The law has two aspects. The first aspect states that everything is mind or spirit. Everything arises out of thought or universal consciousness. Thought creates. The second aspect is that everything exists within the mind of God, and the mind of God exists within everything.
  • The Law of Correspondence — The microcosm level of the human being corresponds to the macrocosm level of the universe. The inner level of objects held in thought corresponds to the outer level of objects in reality.
  • The Law of Vibration — Also called the Law of Resonance. This law says that everything is in motion. Matter, energy, thoughts everything is vibration. This law has two subsidiary laws: the Law of Attraction and the Law of Change.
  • The Law of Polarity — The subsidiary law is the Law of Relativity, which says that everything is relative and nothing exists alone. Everything is relative to other things. The primary law is that everything exists on a spectrum.
  • The Law of Rhythm — This law says that all of life, and even non-life, exists within an
