EXPERT ALERTS:

Conscious Uncoupling Can Create Common Ground
Jeffrey O. Anderson
Family Law Attorney
McCurley Orsinger McCurley Nelson & Downing, L.L.P. in Dallas
"The concept of 'conscious uncoupling' immediately became something of a punchline when Gwyneth Paltrow used it to describe the end of her marriage to Chris Martin. Although it could be a ploy to buy time to create a divorce battle plan, it might also be a signal that they have found common ground in trying to create the best possible situation for their children. The breakup of the family is hard on children. The idea of conscious uncoupling might not help a husband and wife evolve as going human concerns, but it might help their family evolve into a different normalcy without as much trauma to their children. The uncoupling process can give the parents time to breathe and ease into a different normal, and let the children get accustomed to a new life before the word 'divorce' is said and the blinding white light explodes in their heads."

Divorce Wars: Military Style
Jeffrey Kerstetter, Esq.
Partner
Law Offices of Lynda Hinkle
"While every divorce is fraught with pitfalls, ranging from finding a compatible attorney to legal, custodial and emotional issues, military divorces raise special challenges. I've witnessed first-hand lawyers misquoting, misinforming or misadvising military clients or service members' spouses."
Most lawyers, including divorce lawyers, are unfamiliar with the interplay of state and federal statutes that could apply. Kerstetter, a military divorce attorney, offers a helpful tip sheet for any military personnel seeking a divorce. Law Offices of Lynda Hinkle is a Blackwood, N.J.-based law firm that that specializes in all forms of family law including divorce, military divorce, custody, prenuptial, domestic violence, wills and estates.

The State of American Agriculture
Kent Shoemaker
Chief Executive Officer
Lipman
"American agriculture is continuing to go through a consolidation phase. The family farm is the backbone of our country and core to who we are, but the image of the small farmer with one tractor and a few rows of crops is becoming outdated. It is actually larger farms that drive productivity and give careful consideration to the environment while producing the best yields that feed America."
Shoemaker is CEO of Lipman, North America's largest field tomato grower. He is a leader in the fresh produce industry and he can discuss the state of American agriculture; major issues facing the industry including GMOs, water and pesticides. Lipman has farms throughout the country and supplies some of the biggest names in the restaurant and grocery industry.  The company's diverse operations include farming, repacking, procurement solutions, processing and research and development. Based in Immokalee, Fla., the company's highest volume crop is tomatoes, but also grows and markets peppers, cucumbers, eggplant, watermelon and potatoes.

Identifying a Cause for Infant Colic
Joel Lavine, M.D., Ph.D.
Chief of Pediatrics Gastroenterology, Hepatology and Nutrition
Columbia University Medical Center
"While the presence of a specific intestinal microbe in some infants warrants further research, there is another, often under-discussed cause for infant colic that has already been identified, Transient Lactase Deficiency (TLD) that affects approximately 40 percent of colic cases."
Dr. Lavine, M.D, Ph.D., professor of pediatrics and chief of pediatrics gastroenterology, hepatology and nutrition at Columbia University Medical Center address the common myth of probiotics for colic by addressing the only clinically proven cause of colic symptoms, Transient Lactase Deficiency, a temporary lactose intolerance in infants as a result of an immature digestive system. He provides solutions for colic crying, including adding a lactase enzyme, found only in Colief Infant Drops, to babies breast milk or formula to assist digestion.

More and more brands have jumped on the IoT bandwagon. We have an excess of wearables – activity trackers, smartwatches, smart glasses and sneakers, and more that track seemingly endless datapoints. However, most consumers have no idea what “IoT” means. Creating more wearables that track data shouldn't be the aim of brands; delivering meaningful, tangible relevance to their users should be. We're in a period in which the IoT pendulum is still swinging. Initially, it swung toward "smart for smar...
