I often get asked by my clients whether it is legal to record telephone conversations. Like any good lawyer, I always answer that question by asking them a couple of questions, namely: (1) will at least one participant in the telephone call consent to your recording the call?; and (2) what state(s) will all of the participants in the call be in while the call takes place? The reason these two questions are critical is because Arizona is called a “one-party consent jurisdiction.” What this means is that in Arizona, an individual must have the consent or agreement of at least one party to a conversation to legally intercept or record a wire or electronic communication, including wireless and cellular calls. If one party to the conversation has not consented to your intercepting or recording the telephone call, you will be committing a felony (Arizona Revised Statutes § 13-3005). In addition, using a device to overhear (but not record) a conversation while not present, without the consent of a party to that conversation, is also a felony under Arizona law.
In Joseph Conrad’s “Heart of Darkness,” the narrator speaks of his instability caused by the fever dream of the jungle this way: “(It) was the playful paw-strokes of the wilderness, the preliminary trifling before the more serious onslaught which came in due course.”
Local companies are looking for ways to efficiently connect to increasingly fragmented audiences and recapture customers that are being diverted by a host of new competitors. Many of these businesses are diving into digital marketing.
Finding your interior design style can be challenging with so many choices to love and gravitate toward. I’ve often thought I need at least three or more houses to get my styles fully expressed with all the interior design choices we have today. I’d have an elegant traditional home with luxury fabrics in colorful patterns, florals and lots of big spectacular furniture rich in architectural details and finishes. The next home would reflect my love of the cowboy West using big plush sofas, leather and nail-head trims, Western artwork and lots of whimsical details on fireplace screens, door handles, towel racks, lamps and wood-carved furniture. And my next home would be a sophisticated soft contemporary place with clean-lined seating, geometric patterns, glass and metal tables, colorful big abstract art and a few traditional pieces to keep it from having a cold, hard-edge appearance. Alas, if I could only win the Mega Millions jackpot!
Pride assistant coach Aaron Frana manned the sideline, and manned up for that matter, the whole game despite never having his separated shoulder pop back in place after a pre-game fall with his lineman Nick Carman.
With the start of football season just around the corner, parents are shopping for the best safety equipment to ensure that their children are as protected and comfortable as possible. One of the most important tasks of the offseason is selecting the right mouth guard to protect a player’s teeth, mouth and jaw.
I grew up with a lot of religious rules. To violate these rules was to subject oneself to the judgment of God. If you had a fundamentalist upbringing, you may be familiar with some of these restrictions. No drinking, no smoking, no dancing, no playing cards or going to the movies, no mixed-bathing (a prospect that intrigued my teenage mind), no Sabbath-breaking (though we did not actually gather on the Sabbath), and absolutely no questioning of religious authority.
It’s hard to think of many actors from the past few decades who were one of a kind, but Robin Williams was truly a performing force unlike anything that’s ever existed. No one will ever be able to fill his now sadly empty shoes. The fact that his life was taken in such a lonely, horrific fashion after a long struggle with depression only makes this loss more tragic. For now, however, let’s focus on how Williams lived as apposed to how he died. What a life he lived and what an unparalleled career full of laughs, inspiration, and flubber he’s left behind. In honor of this great talent, here are my five personal choices for his best performances in film.
Getting approval from 51 percent of neighbors to change the CC&Rs governing the closed Lakes Golf Course is only the first of many challenges Pulte Homes must overcome to build 250 homes on the land. Its next greatest challenge would be surviving the city’s zoning process.
This is embarrassing, or at least it would be if I had any hope of pretending that I wasn’t doing a perfect impersonation of an ex-nun. But my feckless, impetuous youth has recklessly sailed and sunk in the harbor, so you may as well know the truth.
