Prominent Minneapolis Attorney/Linguist Offers Online Legal English Instruction

Non-Native English Speakers Learn Industry-Specific Legal English Terminology

Minneapolis, MN, October 01, 2011 - Karen Lundquist, a leading Minneapolis business attorney and veteran English instructor, offers expert instruction in legal English terminology for attorneys and other legal professionals. Her online services cater to the needs of any and all professionals who are required to engage audiences using specific legal English vocabulary, yet lack the verbal efficiency needed to convey their messages effectively. In a nutshell, Karen teaches non-native English speakers the legal English terms and vocabulary they need to excel in their respective legal fields.

By visiting karenlundquist.com, authorities from law firms, law schools, governmental agencies and many other industries are able to benefit from the following services:

* Private Legal Language Coaching
* Small Group Classes
* Weekly Online Discussion Forums
* Global e-Law Courses
* Translation & Language Consulting Services

Lawyers, law students and others that speak English as a second language regularly experience difficulties communicating effectively in various career-based scenarios. On a worldwide basis, legal authorities from all business realms are finding that they need to confidently express technical legal jargon in English, not their native languages. Often, receiving traditional instruction in English fails to teach the vocabulary necessary to speak assuredly and authoritatively in courtrooms and/or other formalized business settings. Karen accommodates focused online learning sessions in which her students concentrate on the specific legal English requirements needed for their particular practice areas of law.

Karen Lundquist graduated with honors from William Mitchell College of Law in 2005 and now owns the Attenza Law Firm. She developed her love for culture, language and the legal process before attending law school while living in Italy, Chile and Mexico. Miss Lundquist also taught English as a foreign language in Rome, Italy for more than a decade before entering William Mitchell. Karen is currently the Co-Director of the Business Practicum at William Mitchell College of Law and teaches in the LLM program at the University of Minnesota Law School where she instructs foreign attorneys in legal writing and research. For six years, she served as the coordinator and instructor for William Mitchell’s Summer Institute on American Law, a summer study abroad for Turkish lawyers and law students.

Speaking English, Spanish and Italian fluently, she assists her global clientele in developing the presence and confidence they need to rise up and excel in their legal professions. Karen states, “Law is very technical subject matter and using English for the law is very different than using it for everyday purposes. With my experiences as a language teacher, my students gain the fluency that they need and want so they are able to speak about legal matters in English confidently. Additionally, with my experiences as an attorney, my students can talk to me about the law and know that I understand, something that few other language teachers can do.”

About Karen Lundquist: Karen Lundquist is a multilingual business attorney who owns the Attenza Law Firm in Minneapolis, Minnesota. She is also a veteran professor of English, serving for two decades as a cultured, caring instructor. She specializes in training professionals from various legal realms in mastering specific legal English vocabulary that is integral for their abilities to perform an array of spoken career duties.

David A. Gibb Sells U.K. and Ireland Rights to Camouflaged Killer: The Shocking Double Life of Colonel Russell Williams to Dublin’s Y Books

The book, to be published in Ireland and the U.K. under the alternate title Evil in Plain Sight, is scheduled to be released in October 2011.

Toronto, ON, September 30, 2011 - (Straight Line PR) - David A. Gibb Sells U.K. and Ireland Rights to Camouflaged Killer: The Shocking Double Life of Colonel Russell Williams to Dublin’s Y Books

Bob Diforio of D4EO Literary Agency in Weston, CT, has sold U.K. and Ireland rights to David A. Gibb’s Camouflaged Killer: The Shocking Double Life of Colonel Russell Williams, published in North America by Berkley Books, to Y Books of Dublin, Ireland.

The book, to be published in Ireland and the U.K. under the alternate title Evil in Plain Sight, is scheduled to be released in October 2011.

Y Books (www.ybooks.ie) describes their version as follows:

Russell Williams was a decorated air force colonel in charge of Canada’s largest military airbase. A model officer and an elite pilot, he commanded the respect and loyalty of the thousands of soldiers who served under him. He was widely regarded as an upstanding member of the community, a good boss, a caring husband and a lover of animals. Russell Williams was a man you could trust.

But behind the façade of respectability, Williams was struggling with sado-sexual urges that would ultimately prove catastrophic. As he began to play out his fantasies, his crimes quickly escalated from spying on girls and young women, to stealing their underwear, to bizarre sexual assaults, which he photographed and documented in detail. Undetected by the police, his deviant behaviour spiralled further out of control and he committed two violent rapes and murders, holding his victims captive and filming them as he subjected them to the most unimaginable cruelty.

Evil in Plain Sight is the disturbing true account of how one of Canada’s highest-ranking military officers became the country’s most notorious criminal. David A. Gibb examines the man and the crimes and asks what can drive someone who has everything to lose to commit such brutal atrocities. He questions the police response to Williams’ twisted crime spree, and details his ultimate capture and conviction in 2011. What were the signs that this man would kill, and why did nobody see them until it was too late?

Recently it was announced that Richard Lowry Productions Inc. of Montreal, Canada had acquired the film rights to the story of serial killer and sexual predator Russell Williams, based upon David A. Gibb’s Camouflaged Killer. The project is currently in development, with production expected to begin in 2012.

Rights to all book markets outside of North America, Ireland, and the U.K. are still available. Please contact Bob Diforio at bob@d4eo.com or visit www.camouflagedkiller.com for further information.

The Marriage Trap and Changing Roles for Women

Traditional marriage is usually presented as a blissful union for both husband and wife. But it has a huge sinister side for women: the social ROLE women are expected to play. It’s a trap because it denies women a unique social status of their own.

Jacksonville, FL, September 30, 2011 - The institution of marriage was developed at the dawn of civilization for a much simpler culture than the modern world. This institution held together in an earlier age because society accepted the principle that women BELONGED to men. Women were viewed as "possessions". Ironically, women went along with this because, if women played by these rules, society "protected" their marriage.

Divorce, for example, was NOT, and still is not, allowed in the Catholic Church. Divorce was NOT granted in U.S. courts except for FAULT which mostly meant adultery. But women paid a big price for this. They couldn't vote. They had to obey their husbands about almost everything. They had little say in a career because they either "had" to stay home and take care of the kids, or got moved at the whim of their husband's situation. Sexual activity was very tightly controlled for women while men were allowed a "double standard". Birth control was forbidden. Their role was not unlike the role of a slave. Why did society evolve this way?

Male patriarchy, for the entire span of human culture, has been afraid of the reproductive power of woman. The scary part for men was that women could manage reproduction almost totally without them. This is the story of the Amazons. They killed most of their male babies. All they needed was just a few males to mate with all the women. Amazon society was essentially opposite to the male dominated herd structures of animals.

Like animal structures, male competition for females, which usually involved violence, was a big problem for early society. So monogamy was developed as a social constraint. It’s basic rule was: every man was entitled to at least one woman. To make that work, a way had to be found so that every woman would WANT and stay faithful (at least on the surface) to that one man. The social structure we call marriage achieved this. The marriage ceremony gave each man a woman. The dominance of male social power gave men value that women would want. Ironically, this reversed the "courting" behavior of humans vs. animals, in that human females became the competitors, rather than males. But satisfying the dominant mating drive of males was retained through the double standard.

SO? What now? Society is in a tough bind. With the recognition of women's rights, and the development of birth control, which allows women to enter the workforce, the old structure is falling apart. But society refuses to acknowledged this, and hasn't "established" alternatives which address the problems that are emerging. Two new novels: LIARS! Vol. 1 - Scout to the Pole, and LIARS! Vol. 2 - Escape to Insanity, discuss desperately needed solutions based on over 30 discoveries in psychology, philosophy and social principles.

Ultimately, the reader will learn how public statements claiming to represent broad "public opinion", are predominantly the voice of a small elite minority intent on maintaining superiority. Mankind's greatest social institutions: government, religion, science, education, law, medicine, and even the U.S. Constitution, are challenged and shown to be corrupt. A unified structure emerges which becomes the basis for a new social structure for mankind.

About Bruce Nappi

Explorer, philosopher and Jacksonville, Florida author, Bruce Nappi, has just released two volumes of his new book series LIARS! The books present over 40 major discoveries that answer many of the most critical unanswered questions of the ages, including why we have so much chaos and strife in modern society. Difficult psychological and philosophical discoveries are explained using everyday language in a readable, exciting novel format. The discoveries affect every part of our culture, making the books interesting and valuable reading for everyone who seeks understanding and improvement for today's society.

The books -- LIARS! Vol. 1: Scout to the Pole; and Vol. 2: Escape to Insanity -- are based on Nappi's experience as one of the Eagle Scouts on the 1965 North Pole Expedition. They present an "Atlas Shrugged" philosophical romp through a 3 Stooges run government research world, challenging the most fundamental beliefs of human culture. The coming of age saga is filled with amazing true-life adventures expanded by the insights of 40 years in the rough and tumble world of high tech business intrigue. A life threatening climax in volume 2 finally creates a setting to pull together all the wisdom and lay out a broad and comprehensive explanation for many of the problems modern society can't seem to understand.

About the A3 Society

The A3 Society was formed to gather a community of like-minded people to explore the new social structure outlined in the books LIARS! Vol. 1: Scout to the Pole and LIARS! Vol. 2: Escape to Insanity.

SAFE International Launches Burlington Women’s Self Defense Parties – Burlington, ON Self Defense

SAFE International is expanding its seminar options to include women’s self defense parties in Burlington, ON.

Burlington, ON, September 30, 2011 - (Straight Line PR) - Burlington Self Defense, SAFE International Launches Burlington Women’s Self Defense Parties

SAFE International ™ is the leading provider of mobile self defense/personal protection training in Ontario. SAFE International has taught more than 120,000 clients in the private, corporate and high school environments since 1994. SAFE International is expanding its seminar options to include women’s self defense parties in Burlington, ON.

SAFE International quickly realized that women had completely different concerns, fears, and needs than males. Chris Roberts, CEO of SAFE International listened to their concerns and tailored something that was not only educational, but also met their personal fears. Men have no idea what women go through on an everyday basis from the stares and comments to the physical gestures and advances.

One of the reasons that SAFE International enjoys teaching women’s self defense Burlington, is how receptive women are to the skills that the SAFE International instructors provide. SAFE International teaches self defense concepts, rather than techniques. This allows women to learn in a much shorter time. SAFE International always covers Awareness and Avoidance strategies which are based on one's daily routines.  We examine what an attacker looks for, what an attacker wants and doesn't want in confrontation. One of the biggest topics we explore is how most people are too polite, even when their intuition is telling them the complete opposite. We cover the most common distraction techniques an attacker will use to gain an advantage. We then move on to verbal strategies in the event that avoidance is no longer possible.  Rather than just teaching to yell at a potential attacker, we cover a few verbal strategies based on the aggressor and the scenario. The third step is addressing the physical aspect of Burlington women’s self defense. We begin with the advantages of adopting a passive stance rather than an aggressive stance.  We only teach gross motor strikes due to the adrenal rush one gets when they are in a highly stressful state such as an attack scenario.  We teach a philosophy of "Attack the Attacker" which reverses one from being the Prey, to that of being the Predator. Another philosophy is to attack the head if all avoidance and verbal strategies have failed. This is only 30 minutes into the physical training and you can see how the self defense concepts are very effective.  The self defense drills increase with intensity as the participants gain more confidence.  This is very important as you don't want to terrify your clients right from the start.  It is important to build rapport with your students and the results will be seen as the drills progress. The following YouTube video shows how much can be learned in only 30 minutes of women’s self defense instruction.


Forget Tupperware Parties!
Invite 6 to 8 of your friends for a few hours of fun, education and potentially life- saving instruction. Plan a meal, bbq, snacks, maybe some dessert! Be prepared for a unique Burlington Women’s Self Defense experience! What has made SAFE International so popular is their unique method of teaching with humour and sharing of anecdotes. Get to experience their simulated attacks in scenario specific situations such as at the front door, the kitchen, the car, etc.

SAFE International has taught more than 120,000 clients including mothers, fathers, daughters, police officers, seniors, and people with disabilities.

New NanoMarkets Report, “A Capacity and Opportunity Analysis of OLED Lighting"

The new NanoMarkets report also includes an eight-year forecast of OLED lighting manufacturing capacity broken out by individual manufacturer and whether the facilities will use solution processing or more conventional fabrication.

Glen Allen, Virginia, September 29, 2011 - NanoMarkets, the leading provider of market research and analysis of the emerging OLED lighting space, has published the latest report titled, A Capacity and Opportunity Analysis of OLED Lighting Manufacturing” that provides detailed insight and analysis of the manufacturing strategies of major OLED lighting suppliers and an assessment of how these firms have been progressing with their manufacturing plans so far. The report also includes an eight-year forecast of OLED lighting manufacturing capacity broken out by individual manufacturer and whether the facilities will use solution processing or more conventional fabrication. An assessment of necessary investment levels for the manufacturing infrastructure is also part of this new report.


Details about this and other related reports are available at http://www.nanomarkets.net/oled_lighting

NanoMarkets concludes that, based on current plans, around seven million square meters of production capacity will be in place for OLED lighting by 2016. However, NanoMarkets also warns that in today’s economic conditions, many of the leading firms promising to bring OLED lighting to market may retreat from their announced plans significantly. With this in mind, this report also includes a projection of the OLED lighting capacity under a “worst case” scenario.

David A. Gibb Launches Book Website for Camouflaged Killer: The Shocking Double Life of Canadian Air Force Colonel Russell Williams

In advance of the book launch for Camouflaged Killer, to be published in the U.S. by Berkley Books and distributed in Canada by Penguin Group on October 4, 2011

Toronto, ON, September 29, 2011 - (Straight Line PR) – David A. Gibb Launches Book Website for Camouflaged Killer: The Shocking Double Life of Canadian Air Force Colonel Russell Williams

In advance of the book launch for Camouflaged Killer, to be published in the U.S. by Berkley Books and distributed in Canada by Penguin Group on October 4, 2011, author David A. Gibb has unveiled a multi-page website devoted to the 372-page book that includes an interactive feature to address concerns about women’s safety.

The website (www.camouflagedkiller.com) provides comprehensive information on the soon-to-be-released book, introduces the author, and details the book’s genesis.

Chris Roberts, CEO of SAFE International, will answer questions pertaining to personal safety and defense issues on the site’s Ask the Expert page (under Safety Tips).

Canadian Air Force Colonel Russell Williams once commanded the largest air force base in the country, and was one of the most respected and trusted soldiers in the military. Never forgetting a name, face, or the birthdays of those who worked under him, he was the poster boy of the Canadian military, and the speed at which he rose through the ranks reflected this. No one had the slightest clue that behind this façade a sexual sadist was quickly escalating from breaking and entering to sexually deviant acts of rape and murder.

In Camouflaged Killer, Gibb, a career investigator, presents new information about the man who personally piloted dignitaries, prime ministers, and members of the British royal family. Offering a fresh perspective, with extensive details on Williams’s background and the crimes that led to his capture, confession, and conviction, Gibb delves deep into the psychology behind the serial killer. Thoroughly researched, and with the support of well-respected psychologists, profilers, and forensic investigators, Camouflaged Killer documents the disturbing account of how one of Canada’s highest-ranking military officers – a seemingly normal and responsible man – became one of the country’s most notorious criminals.

Film rights to the book have already been acquired by Richard Lowry Productions Inc. of Montreal. Lowry is best known for his Emmy-nominated mini-series, To Catch a Killer, which starred Brian Dennehy as serial killer John Wayne Gacy. Development on the screen adaptation is set to begin immediately with production expected to follow next year.

Brac Systems Inc. Sells Blackwater Treatment System to a Residential Complex Developer in Mexico

Brac Systems Inc. is delighted to announce the sale of its Black Water Treatment Systems, the BWTS, to a residential complex developer in San Miguel de Allende for a six hundred home project.

Montreal, Quebec, Canada, September 27, 2011 - Brac Systems Inc. (BAAD - OPEN MARKET - Frankfurt Stock Exchange) - Brac Systems Inc. announces the sale of blackwater treatments systems to a residential complex developer, Guanajuato, Mexico.

Brac Systems Inc. is delighted to announce the sale of its Black Water Treatment Systems, the BWTS, to a residential complex developer in San Miguel de Allende for a six hundred home project. Brac Systems would like to congratulate Luis Miguel of Rig Supplies, (http://rigsupplies.com.mx) the Brac Systems Mexican distributor for their superb efforts in securing this large application of the blackwater treatment system in Mexico. "Rig Supplies is extremely pleased to have been apart of this large project" said Mr. Tostado. ?These systems will aid the safe and reliable treatment of domestic waste and in doing so will protect not only the environment but the health of the local people.

The initial phase of the project will involve a blackwater treatment system to be set-up for the newly constructed offices of the complex. This will allow the utilization, demonstration and effectiveness of the system while construction of the complex continues. The BWTS will process waste water from up to six hundred homes once completed in the city of San Miguel de Allende. The complex owners will benefit from the real time monitoring of the system processes from any location as a result of the BWTS connection to the internet.

The project has been designed and developed to both retain and protect the environment while protecting the health and sanitation of the local population. The BWTS system is highly versatile and adaptable to meet the requirements of projects such as this one in Guanajuato. ?The system is technologically advanced yet provides the ability for relatively inexpensive adaptation to older type systems and plumbing configurations. We already see a huge potential in this region and with the positive feedback we have received to expect the system to be very successful in Mexico? said Mr. Tostado.

The BWTS is the excellent result of a determined and conscientious endeavour from Brac Systems Inc. team in design, research, development and testing. The system is generating considerable interest and intrigue for a low, system and operational cost delivering high performance results.

2012 Global State of Information Security Survey® Released – Global Leaders Realizing the Importance of Cyber Security on the Cloud

The Global State of Information Security Survey explores critical factors of the effectiveness of IT and cloud storage security.

Penticton, British Columbia/Framingham, Mass, September 28, 2011 - According to the survey, 72 percent of respondents polled in the Global State of Information Security Survey (over 9600 in 138 countries), feel confident in their organizations’ IT security. This is a marked decline over years passed and given the onslaught of corporate security breaches and the recent media attention it’s received, this comes as no surprise.

According to Mark Lobel with PwC’s Advisory practice, "Companies now have greater insights than ever before into the landscape of cyber crime and other security events - and they're translating this information into investments specifically focused on three areas: prevention, detection and operational web-related technologies."

The survey indicates that cloud computing, although on the rise, is more complicated than ever. Polling indicates that 40% of those surveyed have turned to cloud storage as a part of their business plan. “The largest perceived risk is the uncertain ability to enforce provider security policies.”

With corporations all over the globe shining the spotlight and putting more money and resources toward information security, individuals should take note and begin to take cloud storage security into their own hands.

theLocBox, a new utility conceived by Doug Oucharek and Stephen Joyce, has been designed with this user in mind, no longer willing to place the security of their private documents in the hands of the cloud storage provider. theLocBox places an additional layer of user generated, military grade security between the user and the cloud storage facility, essentially placing the keys to their secure data in the hands of the user.

According to Oucharek, “the current security environment dictated a need for theLocBox. More individuals, small businesses and corporations are turning to cloud storage than ever – it’s cost effective. But you need to feel safe that your hard earned work product is secure. Enter theLocBox.”

Adds Joyce, “Online global collaboration is the new way to do business. We work in a virtual space with individuals from all over the world, which brings a whole new level to what we can accomplish. But given this global push, we need a secure virtual workplace.”
