SAFETY IT’S DANGEROUSLY HOT. WHY NO STUPID HIKER LAW? By Robert Mann, Attorney at Radix Law

A

s Arizona’s crushing summer heat once again sets multiple records, there tends to rise a chorus of those who would like to see a “Stupid Hiker Law,” modeled after Arizona’s wellknown “Stupid Motorist Law.” The refrain this year is not as loud, due to the fact that, thankfully, there has not been recent publicity surrounding any heat-related rescues. But the murmur remains. Arizona’s Stupid Motorist Law provides for the recovery of first-responder expenses against a driver who (i) drives around a road-closed barrier, (ii) drives into water that is covering the roadway, (iii) becomes stranded, and (iv) needs to be rescued. The harm the law seeks to prevent is obvious: Do not drive into flooded roadways. If there is standing or running water, it is dangerous, so do not do it. If there is no water in the roadway, it is safe to drive, and the sign is removed to allow safe passage.

Hiking on preserve trails presents risk, even under optimal conditions. On roadways, it is easy to warn of water. That is a discreet, clear and temporary risk from driving into low-lying streets. The many risks of hiking are too varied and too diverse to be so easily defined and avoided. In any case, anyone who has driven past a Valley trailhead in 118 degree heat can attest to the fact that, there really is not that much interest in hiking on such days. Robert (Bob) Mann concentrates in litigation, bringing over twenty years of experience in both civil and complex commercial litigation to Radix Law. Over the course of his career, Bob has represented clients in litigation matters both large and small throughout the state of Arizona. He has practiced in both state and federal courts, and in a wide variety of non-court settings, including mediation, governmental administrative proceedings and arbitrations. His experience includes both trial work and appellate practice.

However, the risk and the behavior to be avoided for a Stupid Hiker Law is not as clear. Hiking always contains an element of risk. People trip or fall. Hikers can have medical events unrelated to the temperature. There have been rescues reported related to aggressive bee attacks. There are rattle snakes. Monsoon storms also create dangerous wind and lightening conditions.

BRIDGEWATER ASSISTED LIVING OPENS AFFORDABLE COMMUNITY IN DEER VALLEY MOST PEOPLE DON’T THINK ABOUT ASSISTED LIVING CARE UNTIL IT’S UPON THEM. OFTEN A FALL LEADS TO SURGERY AND SURGERY LEADS TO THE NEED FOR ASSISTANCE IN DAILY LIVING. The challenge for most is cost. Traditional senior assisted living communities offer apartment homes that range from $2,800 for a studio to $3,600 for a one-bedroom. And then care is added to that. At Bridgewater, we have partnered with the Arizona Department of Housing to offer low-income or income based housing and care. As an income based community, your annual income is the determining factor to qualifying for as a resident. To qualify an individual’s annual income cannot exceed $27,840. Couples annual income cannot exceed $31,800. If you meet these qualifications and you need assistance in daily living, we would invite you in to see the community. Prices for rent and care start as low as $1,950 a month for supervisory care. And, if you’re a military

veteran, there are programs available that may provide additional nontaxable income to you and or a widowed spouse. Bridgewater Assisted Living’s program is designed to respond to the individual needs of senior adults who may need help with some activities of daily living, yet are eager to remain as independent as possible. Assisted Living at Bridgewater provides a supportive environment, which promotes maximum independence, dignity, and interaction with friends, family and community. When you choose assisted living at Bridgewater you will have access to our certified care staff 24/7, transportation, emergency pendant that is worn around your neck, in-room pull cords, routine health assessments by our licensed residential nurse, and an attentive and responsive staff.

prepared by our chef, daily and evening access to our coffee bistro and bar, daily activities, fitness room, business center, large selection of library books, magazines, and papers, transportation to local doctor appointments, access to private inhouse theater showing classic and current movies, a beautiful interior and private courtyard, bocce ball

court, and a staff that is available for you 24/7. If you are at all curious about the qualification process stop by and see Ashley Villone. She will inform you of all the stipulations to qualify and can also advise on military pension and Medicaid eligibility. Call to see if you qualify, 602-714-9350.

And if you haven’t heard enough, let me tell you about the amenities at Bridgewater. As an assisted living resident in the community you will have access to three meals a day

THE ADDITION OF A 3RD YOUTH ORCHESTRA NORTH VALLEY SYMPHONY ORCHESTRA IS EXCITED TO ANNOUNCE THE ADDITION OF A THIRD ORCHESTRA IN OUR YOUTH PROGRAMS, NVYS (YOUTH STRINGS). Orchestra placement is not based on age or grade, but is instead by the skill level of each individual student. The beginner level group (Symphonettes) does not require auditions. Auditions for the intermediate and advanced level groups include scales, a solo and prepared excerpts. As students progress in their musical training, they are encouraged to audition for more advanced groups within the NVSO organization. NVS (Symphonettes) is directed by Caitlin Corbett, and only requires students to have one year of instruction prior to joining. There is no audition required.

3 THINGS TO HELP YOU WIN AT ONLINE ADVERTISING By Ryan Englin, CEO of Inspire Business Concepts

G

etting the right customers to call you requires the right messaging, and the right messaging needs to be on the right advertising platform. Also consider that advertising will boost your brand’s recognition, even if it doesn’t net you a bunch of new customers. This recognition could be valuable in itself. Online advertising can be a great addition to print or media ads; it can be easily, and quickly updated, it’s very easy to track what is working and what is not, and you can control your advertising budget one day at a time. However, there are some things to consider before you get started.

1. COMMIT TO A BUDGET It will take time to get it right. We recommend committing to a budget for at least 90 days. Too often we see business owners get scared when the phone doesn’t ring immediately. By committing for 90 days, it’s easier to wait out those first couple months while you’re testing to get it right. Be careful with early successes too. We’ve seen campaigns get incredible results immediately and later slow down. By committing to a budget, you’ll be able to work through the ups and downs of starting a new campaign. 2. KNOW YOUR AUDIENCE & YOUR OFFER Too often we see ads promoting a product or service without any con-

sideration for how your customer is searching. If you’re using Google Adwords, what keywords should you be showing up for? This goes beyond a basic keyword list for your product or service. For example, if you provide auto repair services, make sure your keywords match the language your customers will use when searching for auto repair. Of course “auto repair” should be a keyword, but so should “my air conditioner in my car isn’t cold,” or “my engine is making a squeaking sound.” With the right keyword list, you’ll make sure to keep your ad costs down and your results up. 3. TRACK EVERYTHING Once your ads are up and running, you need tracking systems in place.

If your landing page has a phone number, you should have call tracking to know how often the phone number results in a conversion. If your landing page has a form, you should have a way to track how often those requests turn into revenue. Oh, and you should have a landing page separate from your website. Without a landing page, it’s tough to tell what’s working and what isn’t. With good tracking systems in place, you’ll be able to make better decisions about the changes you need to make.

DOES YOUR MEAN BOSS CRY HIMSELF TO SLEEP AT NIGHT? NEW STUDY REVEALS THAT ANGRY BOSSES ARE ACTUALLY UNHAPPY AND UNFULFILLED

A

new management study has just uncovered something surprising: ‘Mean’ bosses often feel sad and empty at the end of the workday. The study, which was published by the Academy of Management Journal, also found that bosses who believe themselves to be powerful and commanding are the most likely to go home feeling unfulfilled.

work with these types of leaders for a living,” says Krister Ungerboeck, CEO coach. “When people most crave power and control over others, it is almost always because they are deeply insecure and wounded. In fact, CEOs are often so successful because they are driven by their own feelings of inadequacy and their own fear of being ‘unmasked’ as an unworthy person.”

“This study has revealed what many of us have suspected for a long time, especially those of us who

So how can employees try to win over an angry, impossible-to-please boss? 1. UNDERSTAND HIS POINT OF VIEW Ungerboeck says the key is to realize that your ‘mean’ boss is actually a victim in his own head. “He has no clue that he is the one in the wrong,” says the CEO coach. “As this study showed, your mean boss sees himself as a victim.

He goes home at the end of the day feeling hurt and angry about his employees’ perceived ungratefulness and unwillingness to work hard. Although the thought of him as a victim might sound laughable to you, it’s crucial to understand your boss’s POV if you want to survive and thrive under his leadership.” 2. MIRROR HIS STATEMENTS “Victims feel empowered when they are heard,” says Ungerboeck. “Help your boss feel empowered (and ergo less likely to lash out) by mirroring his statements. If he is highly stressed about a deadline, you can say “I hear that this project is really important to you. You really need me to finish this quickly,” rather than just saying ‘Okay’ or ‘Sure.’” 3. DON’T ASK QUESTIONS THAT BEGIN WITH ‘WHY’  “When you ask a question that starts with why, it tends to put people on the defensive right away,” says Ungerboeck. “They feel a burden of proof, a need to give you answers and explanations. This will trigger your boss’s

victim persona. Instead, use declarative statements like, ‘I could use some guidance on this particular issue.;” 4. DON’T OVERDO YOUR PRESENCE “The recent media dustup over Steve Harvey’s memo demanding space from his employees highlights an important issue: Many CEOs and managers simply feel overwhelmed from constant questions and needs all day. Try to corral all of your questions, ideas and concerns into one face-to-face with your boss, rather than popping in and out randomly to ask questions as they arise.” 5. BE CAREFUL ABOUT EMAILS  “Studies prove that emails are less persuasive than in-person interactions,” says Ungerboeck, “So if you’re asking for a vacation day or you need to leave early, ask in person. Other studies show that emails with succinct subject headers get opened more than those with long subject lines. Keep it short, sweet and face-to-face if you want to stay on your mean boss’s good side.”

TIPS FOR STUDENTS MOVING TO COLLEGE

M

oving into your own place is a milestone that makes you feel like a grownup. And with the new school year approaching, you may be thinking about signing a lease for your first apartment or sharing a house with roommates. So now what? As you head to campus, here are important tips to consider before and after you sign on the dotted line:

automatically covered. But, part-time students or students 24 and older may need to get their own renters insurance.

PICK YOUR PLACE Every property offers different features, so do your homework before locking into a lease. Compare amenities for each rental to decide which fits your needs best. Is location the most important factor? Does a big bathroom top your list? Will you have a set parking spot or on-site laundry?

In addition to damage or theft, renters insurance can cover additional living costs caused by a covered property loss beyond your normal living expenses -- even if it’s not your fault. For instance, your neighbor could accidentally start a fire or overflow a bathtub, ruining your apartment and its contents. Renters insurance can offer a place to stay during these unforeseen circumstances. And in case you’re concerned about the cost of renters insurance, it may be less than you think. For example, if you have a car, you may be able to bundle your auto and renters insurance together for a multi-policy discount, which in some cases may add only a few dollars a month to your total cost.

Next, shop around. Websites like Trulia can keep you on-budget by offering quick and easy cost comparisons. Consider living with a roommate to split rent and other expenses. Make sure you understand the contract before you sign. Who pays for utilities? Who is responsible for repairs? What happens if you break the lease? Read the contract thoroughly, and ask the right questions. PEACE OF MIND Once you’re moved in, find a secure place for valuables like jewelry and electronics such as laptops and tablets. Your landlord may require you to have renters insurance in case of theft or damage to your property, but if not, it’s a good idea to review your options. Often times your personal items are covered under your parents’ existing homeowners policy, but not always. At Erie Insurance, for example, single, full-time students under 24 are

A renters policy can cover your personal property inside and out of the home. So, your laptop or bicycle would be covered if it was stolen while you were at a coffee shop or anywhere else.

PROTECT YOUR RIDE Sharing your ride with a friend for a grocery run? Remember insurance usually follows the car – not the driver. That means you should be covered if your friend gets into an accident with your vehicle. But be sure to review your policy before giving anyone the keys. Consider a parking plan, since space on campus is usually limited, especially if your rental agreement doesn’t include a designated spot. Find a well-lit area, ideally with some form of security. Don’t forget to lock your car, and always store packages or valuables in

the trunk or take them with you.

Another option? Leave your car at home. Many college campuses are walkable, so you might not even need a car. Heading to college and getting your own place can be an exciting new adventure. Plan ahead so you can rest easy once class is in session. (StatePoint)

IS ONLINE HIGH SCHOOL EASY?

O

ne of the most common questions asked about online school is: It it easy?

Our answer is, “It’s school.” Because the question is so often asked, Primavera Online High School put together this article to help clear confusion. In the past there were online schools who were not providing students with the quality curriculum they should have. But Primavera Online High School has been around since 2001, and we offer a real, accredited quality education. School is never easy. But there are certainly benefits to online school versus traditional school.

IS ONLINE HIGH SCHOOL EASY? If it’s a public charter school, than its coursework is accredited, which means what you learn online is the same as what you learn at your traditional school. Accredited online schools can’t just make up lessons and hand you a free diploma. You do have to learn the material, take exams and earn your diploma.

While the coursework itself is not easier, there are benefits to an online school. FLEXIBLE SCHEDULE Online students are expected to spend about 30 hours a week and complete weekly assignments and projects on time. But the difference is students are not tied to a physical building from 7 a.m. – 3 p.m. every day. You can choose

when and where you want to do your schoolwork.

In this sense, online school isn’t “easier,” but it can be less stressful because you can make school fit your lifestyle. You are not worried figuring out how to work in class time, sports, work and doctor appointments in one day. You can set your own schedule, and that relieves a lot of concerns for students who need flexibility due to life circumstances, jobs or extracurricular activities. Keep in mind that more flexibility requires more discipline. Online instructors are readily available to help but it is your responsibility to complete assignments on time. ENGAGING CURRICULUM Online courses are unique to traditional schools. Despite common belief, online school is not simply a bunch of words on the page. In addition to reading, there are interactive multimedia elements integrated throughout each lesson. For Primavera, these elements include award-winning videos, graphic-novel stories, educational games and more to help you enjoy what you’re learning. PERSONALIZED SUPPORT If you had one hour to help 30 people, who would you go to first? Likely the ones who grab your attention first and ask for help. That’s the barrier a traditional classroom creates. With large class sizes, students must be vocal in order to receive any sort of help. Those who aren’t oftentimes fall through the cracks. Online instructors have the benefit of taking care of each student individually. There are real-time online lectures similar to that of the traditional classroom, but that’s merely one point of contact--not the main form of interaction. Like any other high school, online school is not easy. But it certainly can have its benefits. Head to ChoosePrimavera.com/ Enroll to get started.

W

Here are some excellent museums that educate and stimulate learning, while also being fun, interesting and highly entertaining for kids and grownups alike. MUSICAL INSTRUMENT MUSEUM The Musical Instrument Museum is an unexpected and breathtaking surprise for first time visitors. Also known as the MIM, this two-story, state-of-theart facility is a showcase of instruments and music from every genre and almost every country in the world. The MIM displays more than 6,500 instruments, allowing visitors to see and hear music and instruments from around the globe. The museum also provides visitors a hands-on experi-

The MIM is open daily 9:00 am – 5:00 pm and provides a number of children’s programs, concerts and other musical adventures for visitors of all ages.

CHARITY HEFAR HELPS YOU BEAT THE HIGH COST OF A COLLEGE EDUCATION

T

he HEFAR Group is a team of college funding experts committed to making a college education affordable and accessible to everyone. We are the leading experts on the college funding and financial aid process and we can help YOU lower your EFC and get more free money for college.

Trying to find grants, scholarships and financial aid to help with the skyrocketing cost of college? Stop wasting time filling out scholarship applications. One of the best kept secrets of the financial aid process is that the majority of aid, including grants and scholarships, is NEED based. Which

means, to get more grants and scholarships, you need to shift your focus to lowering your Expected Family Contribution.

First, it is important understand the financial aid process. When you complete the FAFSA, the Government determines your EFC, which is the minimum amount you are expected to pay for college. They tell YOU how much you can afford to pay. And, whatever you think you can afford; the government thinks you can afford more. So, if your EFC is high, you pay more. If your EFC is low; you pay less! The trained and certified College

Funding experts at The HEFAR Group understand the financial aid process and can show you how to position your finances to lower your EFC and get more free money for college.

start learning how to lower your EFC! Visit hefar.org to learn more and to download our College Planning 101 course.

Our College Planning 101 course will teach you how to cut through the red tape with the FAFSA. It will show you how you can change your financial situation, reduce your EFC, and find grants, scholarships, and financial aid that you may have previously been ineligible to receive. If you want to qualify for more grants and scholarships, stop wasting time filling out scholarship applications and

What are the benefits to the Seller? With a sale-leaseback, the seller reclaims use of the capital that otherwise would be tied up in property ownership, and at the same time retains possession and continued use of the property for the lease term. The seller usually receives more cash with a sale-leaseback than through conventional mortgage financing; in a typical transaction with both land and improvements, the seller receives 100 percent of the property’s market value (minus any capital gains tax). In comparison, conventional mortgage financing normally funds no more than 70 percent to 80 percent of a property’s value.

FOR SALE - FREE STANDING INDUSTRIAL BLDGS.

What is a saleleaseback? In the typical sale-leaseback, a property owner sells real estate used in its business to an unrelated private investor. Simultaneously with the sale, the property is leased back to the seller for a mutually agreed-upon time period, and at a rate acceptable to the investor; a typical lease rate today might be equal to a 7 percent to 7.5 percent return on investment.

The seller usually can structure the initial lease term for a period that meets its needs without the burden of balloon payments, call provisions, refinancing, or the other issues of conventional financing. Moreover, the seller avoids the substantial costs of

conventional financing such as points, appraisal fees, and some legal fees. The main tax advantage of a valid sale-leaseback is that rental payments under the lease are fully deductible. With conventional mortgage financing, a borrower deducts interest and depreciation only. Why Do Prospective Tenants Get Lease Quotes in Dollars or Cents? Commercial real estate people can sometimes really confuse tenants when we are giving lease quotes. Usually it is unintentional and it typically happens when tenants and real estate people are discussing office space and industrial space. Office space lease quotes are generally discussed in annual terms. For example, a client is looking at a 5,000 square foot space and is quoted a lease rate of $10.80 per square foot. The client then walks across the street into an industrial park and the real estate professional quotes him an industrial lease rate of $0.90 per square foot for his / her 5,000 square feet. Now these two quotes don’t sound the same but in fact are the same amount but one is quoting annual rent and one is quoting monthly rent. To convert one to another, simply divide the annual rate by twelve or multiply the monthly rate by twelve to compare apples to apples. It certainly can be confusing to the new tenant out there in the market place but any real estate professional can quickly make the conversions and explain the process so that tenants can make accurate comparisons easily.

PREPARING YOUR HOME FOR THE MONSOON By Brooke Hoyt

A

rizona’s monsoon has arrived. The season can damage your home and drain your wallet. Simple maintenance can prevent the headache of future repairs. At Platinum Home Warranty, we’re dedicated to educating our customers on how to protect their home. Without a home warranty, replacing damaged appliances can cost thousands of dollars, and a last-minute repair can cost hundreds. Before you need to spend money on repairs, here are some tips to protect your home during these massive storms. If lightning strikes your home during a monsoon and you’re not prepared, it can cause some serious damage. Connecting electronics to high-voltage surge protectors can help prevent damage caused by strikes. The sheer power of lightning can short electrical systems, potentially damaging

valuable appliances and electronics if not protected. Basic clean ups in the backyard before blustery winds hit can help prevent a home from being swallowed in debris. A clean yard prevents leaves and trash from going in a clean pool and clogging pool pumps. A cover over your pool is a simple and easy fix to make sure leaves and other trash stays out of it.

ranties do not protect against “acts of God”. Following the steps listed above will help prevent the need for repairs. For more information on how to best protect your home during Arizona’s monsoon, visit our blog at www.platinumhw.com/blog. Brooke Hoyt is the Vice President of Operations at Platinum Home

Warranty, a locally owned and operated company located in Scottsdale. Platinum employs their own service technicians for most trades, offering home warranties and a full retail division to meet the needs of homeowners in metropolitan Phoenix. To learn more about how Platinum can help you and your clients, head to www. platinumhw.com.

Valley storms can prevent outdoor A/C units from operating at peak efficiency. After a dust storm passes, turn off the unit’s power and spray it down with a hose to keep it running efficiently. If your electricity goes out, give the A/C unit time to reset itself when the power comes back on before you call your home warranty company. Sometimes this can take up to 10 minutes. Be sure to prepare your home for the worst this monsoon. Nature has a mind of its own and most home war-

Reviewed by A.D. Beal BABY DRIVER Coerced into working on a dangerous heist for a crime boss (Kevin Spacey), Baby (Ansel Egort) must face the music as it threatens his life, love and freedom. Edgar Wright (Three Flavours Cornetto Trilogy) returns with Baby Driver. The entire cast is amazing, with special mention to Jon Hamm as Buddy. The film’s car chases are edited perfectly, being some of the best action scenes I’ve seen all year. But the best part is how the film uses music, which is another example of the films masterful editing. Each part of the film feels connected to music, whether it is someone walking down the street or a car chase. WAR FOR THE PLANET OF THE APES The only negative about War is that seeing it in 3D is not worth the additional cash. Everything else however, is a fine example on how to end a trilogy on a high note. The motion-capture performances from the ape actors (Andy Serkis, Steve Zahn, Karin Konoval) continue to impress, while the human performances (mostly Woody Harrelson and Amiah Miller) still manage to be just as interesting. What’s so impressive however is how, for a big budget film, it’s less interested in spectacle and more interested in small intimate moments. These moments are what makes War stand out among many other blockbusters this year.

THE BEGUILED During the Civil War, an all-female boarding school reaches high tension after taking in a wounded Union soldier. The film feels longer than its 94-minute runtime, but that’s not a bad thing. Writer and director Sofia Coppola’s (Lost In Translation) film has amazing production design, feeling straight out of the Civil War, and the sound design is perfect, only using music when it feels necessary. Of course, the cast shines, from the quiet and commanding performance of Nicole Kidman, to the very good child actors, most notably Oona Laurence as Amy. Coppola won the Best Director Award at this year’s Cannes Film Festival, and this film shows that she deserved it. SPIDER-MAN: HOMECOMING The third Spider-Man reboot within 15 years should feel stale and generic. Yet director Jon Watts (Cop Car) manages to make it feel fresh and exciting, with a good blend of comedy and drama. Tom Holland is amazing as both Peter Parker and Spider-Man, and Michael Keaton as Adrian Toomes (AKA The Vulture) is one of Marvel’s best villains. The entire supporting cast are also likable, especially Jacob Batalon as Peter’s friend Ned.
