Scrivener for lawyers

WordPerfect 5.1 is legendary among tech geeks of a certain age, and still has devoted users. I used various incarnations of WordPerfect as my main word processor and brief[1] writing tool until just a few years ago, when I succumbed to the inevitable force of change, and switched to Microsoft Word. Now, though, I’m not even using a traditional word processor as my main brief writing application, because I’ve discovered that Scrivener is a fantastic tool for that purpose.

Enter Your Young Einstein in the Google Science Fair For a Chance At a $50,000 Scholarship

Google Science Fair.jpg

When you were young, did you participate in a school science fair? I remember my paper mache volcano – seemingly a popular choice for kids – into which I mixed vinegar, baking soda, and food coloring. We now live in a global community, and, fittingly, Google is hosting a global science fair. If your child is between 13-18 years of age, he or she is eligible to enter the contest.

In partnership with CERN, The LEGO Group, National Geographic and Scientific American, Google has announced the first global online science competition. According to Google, “all you need is access to a computer, the Internet and a web browser.” To enter, register online and create your project as a Google Site.

The fair is open to individuals, or teams of up to three in number. The Grand Prize winner(s) (and one parent or guardian per winner) score a 10 day trip to the Galapagos Islands with National Geographic Expeditions, a $50,000 scholarship, and more. Other prizes for finalists include a $25,000 scholarship, a Chrome notebook, an Android phone, and a chance to spend time at one of the sponsor’s headquarters, such as at Google, CERN, the Lego Mindstorms R&D team, or Scientific American.

The deadline to enter is April 4, 2011, and judging will be done by a panel of teachers. For more details, check out the Google Science Fair site. Something tells me that my paper mache volcano wouldn’t stand a chance.
