The House of Representatives approved a bill on Tuesday that would allow for cheaper and quicker divorces. The measure, which was approved 135-12, would allow marriages to be dissolved if cooperative partners can meet a set of standards. These standards include owning less than $35,000 in joint property and having no children. The couple must also have been married eight years or less.
The bill is an attempt to lower the high cost of divorce. Rep. Dan Carter called divorce a “plague” in our society, and that it costs couples a lot of money. He went on to say that many couples get caught in the system, which is when divorce often gets ugly.
Attorney Brad Micklin, stated that the bill allowed some couples to take advantage of a quicker, streamlined process for divorce. He said the bill targets a “narrow” group of people who meet certain financial standards and other guidelines.
To be eligible for a quick divorce, neither partner can be on Medicaid or own any real estate. Neither can have a pension plan, either, as these make divorces more complicated. Neither partner can have any protective orders or restraining orders issued by the court.
With a quicker divorce process, couples can spend less on legal fees and judges could spend more time on contentious cases.
By the time you read this, you probably already know that Twitter acquired live streaming app maker, Periscope. This is a big deal because it effectively destroyed potential live streaming competition from Meerkat. While this is big news as far as preserving twitters stock relevance is concerned, it is also significant for a much bigger reason on the consumers side.
One of the main reasons why people open a Twitter account is to read news. These people are not there to send short Tweets. They could care less about that. Instead, they look to Twitter as a 24/7, instantly accessible source of late breaking news. Whether you are looking for gossip or you are looking for the latest development regarding a hot trend, Twitter is it.
It is a giant, crowd-sourcing platform that accesses the minds of millions upon millions of people from all four corners of the globe. It is very easy to find the latest niche news and information, just by simply entering the right keywords into Twitter. Considering the fact that it is a trusted source of late breaking news, live-streaming is a powerful add-on.
While it is nice to get links of news reports, it is way much better to get a link to a live stream so you can see a news video as it plays out. This is why Twitter’s Periscope acquisition can go a long way in really skyrocketing Twitter’s revenue potential. As more and more people use Twitter to view news, and Twitter has the technology in place to deliver live-stream video and slap on ads on top of that, expect Twitter’s revenue profile to explode in the mid term.
Meerkat is a live streaming app that runs on Twitter (NYSE:TWTR) . A lot of market analysts say that video streaming is the next killer app on Twitter since Twitter already has a canned functionality called Vine. The next app, of course, is live streaming through twitter.
Meerkat made a lot of waves because there is a tremendous amount of investor attention on video streaming technology. As the old saying goes, “A picture is worth a thousand words,” how many words do you think a video is worth? This is very important because the more information you can get out there and the more signals you can send, the higher the likelihood you can pull down some serious advertising dollars.
For all intention purposes, the Meerkat project promised to be a big hole in Twitter’s overall revenue potential. This is why a lot of Twitter analysts are very bullish and elated at the news that Twitter bought out Periscope, which offers similar video streaming technology on Twitter. According to these analysts this move by Twitter potentially saved the company from having to pay a much higher valuation for Meerkat if Meerkat were to take off. In other words, the company dodged the bullet.
Considering how fragile Twitter’s overall revenue potential is, it really can not afford to make too many developmental mistakes. It can not afford to let potential competitors get too big. It has to put out fires fairly early on by buying them out or buying a comparable competitor that would steal the thunder of another wise formidable new entity. Twitter did itself a big favor by buying Periscope. It remains to be seen whether Twitter can fully leverage Periscope’s technology so that it can finally generate profit across the board.
Bardon attack could not prevent the organization which will bring tens of thousands of anti-globalization together. In the first statement of World Social Forum in Tunisia it is said that terrorists wants to damage Tunisia’s transition to democracy with their last attack, also want to create fear among the people which are demanding freedom and democracy and seeking to build democracy peacefully.
