Sections take positions Sections take positions March 15, 2005 Regular News Five new legislative positions have been authorized for the Real Property, Probate and Trust Law Section and three for the Business Law Section following recent action by the Bar Board of Governors.Sections are given great latitude on issues in which they wish to lobby, provided the matter is within their subject area, does not conflict with a Bar-wide legislative position, and does not cause a deep emotional or philosophical division among a significant portion of the Bar’s membership.The board okayed the sections’ requests acting on the recommendations of the Legislation Committee.The Real Property, Probate and Trust Law Section had these positions authorized:• Supports amending §§701.02 (Assignment of Mortgages) to conform it to revised UCC Article 9 and provide that: 1.) perfection of UCC security interest in a pledged mortgage is governed solely by the UCC and not by §§701.02, and 2.) filing of a UCC financing statement is not “notice” under §§701.02 and does not affect reliance rights of creditors and bona fide purchasers without notice with respect to instruments executed by the “mortgagee of record” as determined under §§701.02.• Supports amending §§704.01(2) to provide landlocked landowners with a statutory way of necessity.• Opposes Section 2 of Senate Bill 298 creating §§117.055, which requires that notaries keep a detailed journal of all notarial acts including: the date, time and type of notarial act; the date, type and description of each document; the name of the signer; and description of the evidence of identity.• Supports changes to the Florida Construction Lien Laws governing conditional payment bonds and changing procedures for determining whether a claim will be covered by such bonds.• Technical Assistance — The section does not oppose House Bill 113 as originally drafted, but favors additional changes to numerous construction bond and lien statutes.The Business Law Section has these positions authorized:• Supports legislation consistent with the Supreme Court of Florida’s November 30, 2004, certification of need for additional judges.• Technical Assistance — The section offers technical assistance to the Florida Legislature with respect to the proposed Florida Trademark Act, F. S. Ch. 495.• Supports the following clarifying amendments to the Uniform Commercial Code: 1.) add new subsection (4) to §§679.623, to read: ‘‘The debtor retains all of the debtor’s rights in collateral, including title if the debtor has title, until the secured party has completed one of the actions in subsection (3)”; and 2.) add new subsection (4) to §§679.609, to read: “neither title nor legal or equitable ownership pass to the secured party by taking possession of collateral after default unless the secured party acquires ownership by purchase pursuant to §§679.610 or by acceptance in satisfaction of the obligation pursuant to §§679.621 and §§679.622.”
Rush County, In. — Multiple agencies, aviation assets and technology were used Sunday to find a missing Rush County man.A report from the Indiana State Police says George Henson, 83, had last been seen at 11:30 a.m. Sunday at his home on S County Road 500W. Police found Henson’s cell phone and vehicle at the home.Thinking that Henson was in a nearby wooded area, volunteers from area fire departments, Rush County Sheriff’s deputies, Indiana State Police and officials from Rush County Emergency Management began searching around the home. Soon, Henson was located by an Indiana State Police helicopter pilot.Henson had an injured shoulder, but was conscious and talking to rescue workers.David Ruegsegger, of the Indiana State Police Aviation Section, advised they were able to locate Mr. Henson so quickly by using the FLIR, or “Forward Looking Infrared Radiometer” device. According to Ruegsegger, “The FLIR detects heat on the ground, and is able to show anything that is warmer than its surroundings, including animals and humans.” Indiana State Police Sergeant Dave Poynter, who assisted in the search for Mr. Henson said “With the cold temperatures we had last night, usage of the ISP copter and FLIR quite possibly helped save Mr. Henson’s life.”The investigation revealed Henson had fallen out of a tree stand and was unable to walk out of the woods for help. Henson was flown to an Indianapolis hospital for treatment of broken ribs and a dislocated shoulder.

StumbleUpon Related Articles For this month’s Better Collective Spotlight, we returned to Betarades – a provider of sports insights and free betting tips in Greece – to look at its Tipster League product launched in February.Edward Fowler, Marketing Automation Specialist at Better Collective, shares his insights on the product which lets users guess the outcome of events and compete for attractive monthly prizes. Each week, new competitions are added – targeted at the Greek audience – for users to challenge the communities or their friends. SBC: What are the key benefits for Betarades working with the Tipster League?EF: For us, it’s mainly about user retention and not relying on search engines too heavily. The key benefit for Betarades is having ‘lead generation’, which means getting users to complete a sign-up. This allows us, in addition to the great editorial content on the site that drives our traffic, to bring users back to the site through gamification. Additionally, the interactivity of the Tipster League invites users to utilise our fresh content to inspire them with their predictions. This creates increased engagement across the entire site. In this way, we can go beyond bookmaker reviews and bonus codes. We want to build sites and establish brands where users have a reason to come back to, and the Tipster League does this.SBC: How close is this in design and functionality to what you see on, for example, a site such as bettingexpert.com?EF: On bettingexpert, we have tipsters predicting the outcome of events and competing for prizes for those, but it varies across any sports and markets. The predictor differs in that it offers a much more targeted angle for the country and the local teams.The Tipster League could be best compared to the Premier League Fantasy Football, where as a football fan from the UK I’m more likely to engage in purchasing my dream team for clubs I know, rather than reading about NFL tips.SBC: Is this white label being used by other brands too? Is there a standard tipster game layout that works on a global level?EF: The product itself is built to be flexible enough to work in any country, so we can scale it to any target audience. But generally, it’s aimed at all sports fans who want to make use of their knowledge in competitions, or show off to their friends. However, we know that no sports fan or culture is the same, so we have prepared this product to be adaptable to any relevant segment audience. The fundamental concept and mechanics remain the same, but aspects such as sport, market, UX, etc, can all be tweaked to reach the highest level of appeal.SBC: Are there plans to roll this out in other markets?EF: We’ve piloted the product in the Greek market, and have currently not rolled it out into other markets. However, it’s due to be added to one of our Romanian sites soon, and the plan is to steadily continue implementation across a variety of markets and sites. SBC: In terms of marketing automation, are there any campaigns for the Tipster League that have worked particularly well?EF: We have some built in campaigns to reduce churn that have performed well. These automatically identify users that haven’t made a prediction during that competition week and send reminders with countdown timers to make their predictions, relevant to that specific week and the players inactivity. This has reduced churn by over 30%. It’s still early days with the product, and we are steadily getting more data to help guide our ongoing implementations. The great thing about including Marketing Automation from day one is the ability to continuously gather information, learn, implement, and repeat to create an ideal user experience. SBC: What can we expect to see during the rest of the year?EF: We’re constantly optimising and creating new marketing automation campaigns. I imagine we’ll be able to create a ‘stickier’ product and see more loyalty through these, so we’ll see an even more polished marketing retention machine later this year.
