Wish you had a third arm or leg at the office? Well, now you can
have the next best thing thanks to the Kinesis Savant Elite USB foot
switch. The device’s makers tout its use for productivity — after all, the
3 separate foot pedals can each be programmed to execute different
commands to speed up the task at hand (or foot). Less productive types
can replace online poker games and the like with more executive-level
Excel files and Word docs with the tap of a toe when the boss walks by.
Get efficient and impress your higher-ups for $149 at Kinesis.com.

cool to the touch, allowing it to be easily
repositioned to illuminate any surface in
your home or office. Get one for $379 at

“Wealth is the product of a
person’s capacity to think.”
— Ayn Rand
24 A popular myth holds that April 15
is the designated tax day because
originally only the very wealthy had
to pay taxes and the IRS wanted to
catch them before they got distracted
with planning for their summer trips.
A popular coffeeshop topic we find that our attorneys
are continually asked is “Do I really have to wait
eight years to re-file bankruptcy”? That’s a common
misstatement. Many people feel that the recession —
or “economic slowdown” as some choose to phrase it
— is slowly subsiding. Families are looking forward to
this new decade and want to consolidate the financial
mess that the recession has left them by filing
bankruptcy. One way to accomplish this is through
a Chapter 13 Bankruptcy, or as it is commonly
called, a reorganization of debt. Often clients come
to our office and have a plan to resolve their debt.
Our attorneys sit down with each client and explain
that it may be more beneficial to reorganize and
still pay off their obligations. Lowering personal
monthly expenses alleviates some of the financial
stress. Having a lower monthly amount due leaves
more money for savings and other purchases that are
important to each one of us individually. Once the
bankruptcy process has been completed, clients often
begin writing letters to the credit reporting agencies
and advising them that the bad debt reflected on their
credit report is being improperly reported. Clients
make an effort to have the debt recorded on their
credit reports as resolved through the bankruptcy that
was filed. If you have questions about bankruptcy or
foreclosure defense, you should contact an attorney
that specializes in that field of law.

booster, why in the world not pick tails
