Making Your Case: The Art of Persuading Judges
In their professional lives courtroom lawyers must do these two things well: speak persuasively and write persuasively. In this noteworthy book, two of the most noted legal writers of our day Justice Antonin Scalia and Bryan A. Garner systematically present every important idea about judicial persuasion in a fresh, entertaining way. Making Your Case: The Art of Persuading Judges is a guide for novice and experienced litigators alike. It covers the essentials of sound legal reasoning, including how to develop the syllogism that underlies any argument. From there the authors explain the art of brief-writing, especially what to include and what to omit, so that you can induce the judge to focus closely on your arguments. Finally, they show what it takes to succeed in oral argument. The opinions of Justice Scalia are legendary for their sharp insights, biting wit, and memorable phrasing. The writings of Bryan A. Garner, editor in chief of Black s Law DictionaryA®, are respected inside and outside legal circles for their practical guidance on the art of writing and advocacy. Together the Scalia-Garner team has produced a fresh, innovative approach to a timeless topic.
NEWS ABOUT MY CASE FROM MY LAWYER....GOOD NEWS
Hi All ! I'd like to share some good news I got today from my lawyer in the Guardianship. She is a died-in-the-wool animal lover and activist, and really a nice person. A beautiful , kind person..... We were going for a law suit, but since that would probably be more costly than what I would get, we are going for a settlement. What I want and I've said so all along is that my little boys won't just be forgotten and ignored. They were too precious. Just beautiful little animals and so very sweet and trusting. They loved me so much, and I them. I thank God that Bogey and Isabella survived. Caren called me today to tell me she's been working on this for months....working her way up the chain in Miami-Dade County Government to the people who could do the most good. She explained it in a lot of words, but I'm going to try to make this sucinct and easier to understand. The Dept. of Children and Families (whom I abhor.....they treated me and my babies as if they were Gestapo) !! And look what happened to them...they , DCF, are like thugs) will no longer be able to call Animal Control if there is let's say a woman or man who needs to go to the hospital for awhile or whatever. They have to call the Guardianship first, and THEY will find a place to keep a dog or dogs or foster until the person gets back home. She said my puppies will be like little "spokes puppies" for all the animals that may have to go through this. Caren said they have had two cases since mine where they had to go out, and lawyers from DCF came too, so it scared the Dept. of Children and Families. YAYYYYY !!!!!!! Couldn't happen to a better organization. And I'm sure the thugs who did this to me got in a peck of trouble too !! Double YAYYYYY !!! (smile) In the settlement, Animal Control has to admit in writing through a letter to her that they were at fault in the death and horror my babies went through. They also have to pay $1,000 to me (they were trying for $0 , but Caren wouldn't budge on that. The protecol change of Dept. of Children and Families is more important to me than lots of money (well, it would have been nice), but the fact that Johnshay Footman and Mr. Ernest, her boss, who sat and watched as my poor little dogs were grabbed up and put in their truck and I standing there watching in horror, got in trouble by their idiotic, cruel and mean actions. THAT IS MORE IMPORTANT TO ME. If DCF's lawyers felt it necessary to be present and possibly in the future for awhile, it struck a chord with DCF, big time !! I have a lot to be thankful for as well as heartbreak. Caren will send me a copy of the letter she gets from Animal Control. IMAGINE, THEY ARE TRYING TO DENY IT !!!!...they are horrible and have a horrible reputation as well. My excellent vet told me that as well as my dear, sweet friend, Haydee Sanchez who helped me board Bogey and Bella until I could get them back. And the "police" (especially the Miami Beach Police ...many of them are bad news...really bad) will know not to call them either...they have to call the Guardianship so the animals will be protected from the likes of Animal Control. Caren said my puppies and my case is so well known at the Guardianship, and she said my little dogs(she said it over and over) will be the little "spokespuppies" for all the other animals that come after. They are "not" forgotten....... That helps me....Caren has had to deal with Miami-Dade County government about this for the last 8 months.What a girl !! (smile) I asked if people will "know" about the letter and my little dogs, and she said she's workin' on that. So God has blessed me. Isabella thinks there should be a story and pictures in the newspaper. I don't know if I could make that happen, but who knows. Somebody needs to know about Animal Control. I think the Dept. of Children and Families probably were afraid of just that, that's why they've sent their lawyers, and changed their protecol in this regard. Just wanted to let you know. Have a wonderful Thanksgiving to all you dear ones... Michele Yuval (Cousin, Aunt Mickey)

Tutorial Tuesday When processing HDR images, you always run the risk of the dreaded "halo" (generally the area of brighter sky immediately surrounding a darker object). There are several ways to eliminate this from happening and to fix it if it does. 1. Dont Let It Happen: If you use Photomatix and you are getting halos, try reducing the Strength of the effect, raising the Luminosity, increasing the Smoothing, and/or increasing your Highlight Smoothness. If you use HDR Efex Pro, try lowering your Effect Strength. You can also use Control Points to selectively lower the Effect Strength and limit it to just the sky area. 2. RAW File Mixing: If you tried to eliminate the halos, but they are still there you can mix in an original RAW file. First, load both your tonemapped image and one or more of your RAW files (typically the -1 or 0 exposures) as layers in Photoshop. Make sure your tonemapped image is on top. After aligning the layers and verifying they are aligned, begin masking in your replacement sky taking care not to mix in any of the darker elements. I find it helpful to use masking software, Topaz Remask 2, to make this happen for the most part and only use the brush tool for minor touch ups. 3. If you really like the tonemapped sky and don't want to mix in RAW files, never fear; we have a method or two for you as well. We are going to clone in "good sky" on the copied layer. First, duplicate the background layer. Then with the clone tool selected, sample a piece of "good sky" near your halo. Lower the opacity of your clone tool to 50%, and change the blending mode to "darken". Now, carefully begin cloning in the “good sky”. Because your blending mode is set to darken, the clone will only appear on areas where it is darker… such as your halo. Repeat and resample as necessary. Hide your copied layer to see the difference and adjust opacity as necessary. 4. Another trick involves the brush tool and the color sampler tool. First, grab the color sampler (the little eye dropper thingy) and sample a color in the “good sky”. Switch to the brush tool, lower its opacity to 30% and change the lending mode to color. Why color? We want to maintain the texture of the original sky and only change the color. If we used normal or darken blending modes it would look like paint and not like photo. Now, duplicate the layer. On the copied layer begin to carefully paint over the halo with the “good sky” color. Take special care not to paint over anything but sky, as its color will change too (you may want to mask off areas to be protected). Repeat and resample as necessary. Change layer blending mode to darken. Hide your copied layer to see the difference and adjust opacity as necessary. So, for this image I first tried to limit halos within HDR Efex Pro by using control points. However, I wasn’t quite happy with the end result. I ended up mixing in the -1 RAW at about 75% opacity for just the sky and some of the tree leaves (limit ghosting).
