Upgraded Judicial Candidate Voter Guide 2014

For the 2014 general election, the New York State Unified Court System has launched an upgraded non-partisan Judicial Voter Guide at www.nycourts.gov/vote allowing users to sort and filter the list of candidates in each county. The Voter Guide features information about judicial candidates on the ballot based on information provided by the state and county board of elections. I would appreciate it if you could include the information below on your bar association’s e-blasts, newsletters, websites and social media networks.

Visit the New York State Judicial Candidate Voter Guide and

Make an Informed Decision on Election Day.


Visit the non-partisan Judicial Candidate Voter Guide which is designed to help you make a more informed decision on Election Day. It includes descriptions of elective judicial offices throughout the state. The Guide also provides a list of judicial candidates on the ballot in each county based on information provided by the state and county boards of election.

Please visit the Voter Guide and share it with the public, so that more individuals can make an informed decision on Election Day.

 

Thank you.

Get the Facts About Ebola–NYS Department of Health

Governor Cuomo has launched a State information line to answer questions about Ebola. 1-800-861-2280 is free and trained operators are available 24 hours a day, seven days a week. This line is for public health information purposes only. If you require medical attention, call your health care provider or 9-1-1 immediately.

The New York State Department of Health (DOH) continues to protect public health by working aggressively to prevent the spread of the Ebola Virus.

DOH is in continuous contact with the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC), NYC Department of Health and Mental Hygiene, local health departments statewide, health departments in surrounding states, hospital associations, individual health care facilities, EMS providers, transportation officials and other entities to monitor any suspect or confirmed cases of Ebola virus, support investigations of those cases, and provide guidance and information on infection control protocols and procedures to ensure the health and safety of all health care workers, patients, visitors and the general public.

Additionally, New York State and the State of New Jersey have expanded upon CDC protocols and imposed additional measures to identify and monitor individuals who recently spent time in one of the three countries most affected by Ebola or individuals who have recently cared for patients with the virus.

DOH also continues to provide CDC Advisories and Alerts to county health departments and health care providers to heighten awareness of possible cases, request reporting of any suspect cases, and to reiterate infection control procedures.

How to read books from your local library on your tablet — Tech News and Analysis

by Mark Crump

If you haven’t been inside your local library in the last ten years, you might be surprised how easy it is to check out ebooks.

***

The first step is to go to the closest branch of your library, make sure they have a digital library, and get a library card if you don’t have one. They will usually give you a pamphlet with the actual website to access the ebook. One there, you will need to create an account and link your library card number to it. You will then be able to browse the selections on your computer, iOS or Android device. When you search on a title you will get one of three possible results: the title cannot be found; the title is available, but is currently checked out; or the title is available for check out. If the title is available for borrowing, it will have a solid black book icon; if it’s already checked out, it will have a gray book icon.
