What to Look for in Custom Yacht

Posted by on Jul 12, 2015 in Transportation | 0 comments

Purchasing a custom yacht or luxury sport fishing boat is a huge investment of money and time. It is a big decision which cannot be made lightly. Instead, it must be considered from all angles. It is important to know what you are looking for when going into such a decision. While everyone has their own preferences and priorities, there are certain qualities that everyone should look for in their custom yacht. The website of Mikelson Yachts mentions of few qualities everyone should seek in their boat.

The first is top quality design and construction. A well-constructed yacht will last for years and will make the purchase a worthwhile investment. It is important to note that this level of quality helps to maintain the resale value of your custom yacht, which is crucial to making this a worthwhile investment. You may not keep your yacht forever, but whether it stays with you or it finds another home, it is important to invest in a yacht that can stand the test of time.

Another important quality is customization. You do not want a cookie cutter luxury fishing boat that doesn’t meet your specific needs and desires. If you are to invest in a customized fishing boat, it should be just that- customizable. Such a big investment should be exactly what you are looking for.

The last aspect to truly consider is fuel economy and range. You want to look for boats with high speed capabilities at low horsepower, so that the fuel efficiency is as modern as possible. Your investment in a motored yacht or speed boat should be up to date with the latest and most environmentally friendly technology and construction, so that it is a lasting investment for you, and one that is as easy to maintain as possible.

Court Reporting

Posted by on Jul 10, 2015 in Legal Services | 0 comments

The process of court reporting has changed significantly of the past century, as technology has developed and the process has been innovated. Court reporting refers to the process of transcribing or recording speech in the courtroom to produce records and transcripts of official hearings. A person whose occupation is to act as a court reporter is known as a “stenographer.”

Originally, stenographers were trained to type verbatim what attorneys, their witnesses, judges, and others say in a court proceeding. This could be very difficult, requiring the stenographer to type at speeds upwards of 225 words per minute. It required years of training to be able to produce such detailed and accurate transcripts inn this way. Although more high tech means of court recording are preferable, some court proceedings are still recorded in this traditional way. However, the development of computers rather than typewriters or written transcriptions had eased the difficulty of these transcriptions.

Digital technology has revolutionized this service. According to the website of Stratos Legal, court reporting companies now use video and voice recordings to provide accurate, real time transcripts of court proceedings. Advanced technology seeks to accomplish the same goal: to precisely record what is said by lawyers, witnesses, judges, and others verbatim. However, voice writers and videographers now no longer have to depend on their own ears to hear everything that is said. Digital audio can allow isolated playback of channels during transcription, so that the stenographer my listen to multiple voices at once. These digital recording methods are now widely used throughout courtrooms and administrative agencies throughout the Unites States.

The process of course recording has changed dramatically as technology has developed to ease the difficulty of this practice. It is still required that anyone in the career undergoes proper training and receive a license to be a Certified Court Reporter (CCR).
