“Ever wonder how social media works? When people are looking at your posts and why certain posts get more views? Tasha Herrgott with Brand Yourself Consulting is hosting a workshop.  If you have your own business, are selling things like Norwex and Lula Roe, this is ABSOLUTELY worth your time to attend. In one day, you’ll learn way to increase business and understand who you should target and HOW to do it! After spending a half day with Tasha Herrgott and her team, I had dozens of valuable ways to move forward and get ahead using social media. Tasha is knowledgable, friendly and she KNOWS business. She is a successful small business owner with a passion for helping others grow their business. I can not recommend her and this class enough!” – Alison Geier, www.alisonleaphoto.com

“I had the opportunity to attend this workshop today and as a small business owner I left feeling armed with new knowledge and all kinds of inspired! Did you know that with Facebook’s algorithms there are better times and days of the week to post to social media than others? If you use social media for any kind of marketing, whether you’re the owner of a corporation or a LuLaRoe Consultant, the information you learn here is invaluable! There is so much to social media that I had no idea about and I considered myself pretty savvy. My good friend Tasha Herrgott is teaching the workshop at Brand Yourself Consulting and she does an amazing job with a lot of information.

Today I am brimming with ideas on how to improve my social media marketing efforts. Because of what I learned, I am going to be able to spend LESS time and reach a more targeted audience. Who doesn’t want that? They are holding another class in a couple of weeks – so hurry and sign up! You won’t regret it!” Shelley Paulson, www.shelleypaulson.com“There is a class that I went to a couple of weeks ago that was FANTASTIC! It was put on by one of my wonderful girlfriends. Brand Yourself Consulting can help you with any sort of social media marketing needs. However, they are hosting another workshop in April and I would HIGHLY recommend it, its worth every dollar. Going to a class like this is crucial if you want to learn more about what you should and shouldn’t do on social media for your business.” Noelle Nielsen, Bright Birch Group

THIS! Trump’s own words, and words matter

Carol Overland - Legalectric - Sun, 04/02/2017 - 12:03pm

“Throw him the hell out of here!” and worse:

 

 

 

Judge to Trump: No protection for speech inciting violence By The Associated Press Associated Press April 1, 2017 — 7:05pm

LOUISVILLE, Ky. — A federal judge has rejected President Donald Trump’s free speech defense against a lawsuit accusing him of inciting violence against protesters at a campaign rally.

Trump’s lawyers sought to dismiss the lawsuit by three protesters who say they were roughed up by his supporters at a March 1, 2016 rally in Louisville, Kentucky. They argued that Trump didn’t intend for his supporters to use force.

Two women and a man say they were shoved and punched by audience members at Trump’s command. Much of it was captured on video and widely broadcast during the campaign, showing Trump pointing at the protesters and repeating “get them out.”

Judge David J. Hale in Louisville ruled Friday that the suit against Trump, his campaign and three of his supporters can proceed. Hale found ample facts supporting allegations that the protesters’ injuries were a “direct and proximate result” of Trump’s actions, and noted that the Supreme Court has ruled out constitutional protections for speech that incites violence.

“It is plausible that Trump’s direction to ‘get ’em out of here’ advocated the use of force,” the judge wrote. “It was an order, an instruction, a command.”

Plaintiffs Kashiya Nwanguma, Molly Shah and Henry Brousseau allege that they were physically attacked by several members of the audience, including Matthew Heimbach, Alvin Bamberger and an unnamed defendant they have yet to be able to identify.

Bamberger later apologized to the Korean War Veterans Association, whose uniform he wore at the rally. He wrote that he “physically pushed a young woman down the aisle toward the exit” after “Trump kept saying ‘get them out, get them out,” according to the lawsuit.

Heimbach, for his part, sought to dismiss the lawsuit’s discussion of his association with a white nationalist group and of statements he made about how Trump could advance the group’s interests. The judge declined, saying such information could be important context when determining punitive damages.

The judge also declined to remove allegations that Nwanguma, an African-American, was the victim of racial, ethnic and sexist slurs from the crowd at the rally. This context may support the plaintiffs’ claims of negligence and incitement by Trump and his campaign, the judge said.

“While the words themselves are repulsive, they are relevant to show the atmosphere in which the alleged events occurred,” Hale wrote.

Lawyers for Trump and his campaign also argued that they cannot be held liable because they had no duty to the plaintiffs, who assumed the risk of injury when they decided to protest at the rally. The judge countered that under the law, every person has a duty to every other person to use care to prevent foreseeable injury.

“In sum, the Court finds that Plaintiffs have adequately alleged that their harm was foreseeable and that the Trump Defendants had a duty to prevent it,” the judge ruled, referring the case to a federal magistrate, Judge H. Brent Brennenstuhl, to handle preliminary litigation, discovery and settlement efforts.

These amazing perennials begin to bloom in late winter, announcing springs’ return.  Their bloom coinciding with the Christian season of Lent, which has given them their more popular, common name of Lenten Rose. Helleborus thrive in moist, woodland settings where their roots can spreed out and establish extensively; making them a wonderful choice for naturalizing.  A mature clump will grow to be about two feet tall and wide.  Plant them in partial shade, average to fertile soil, and provide them with regular watering during dry spells.  These marvelous spring bloomers are deer and rabbit resistant, evergreen and zone 4 hardy.
