Air Conditioning Glendale

Home

Are you able to get anything done when you’re feeling hot, sticky, and irritable? Just about no one is, and that’s because our bodies are telling our minds that we need to stop working when we feel that way so that we don’t overheat. When you’re trying to get your home or office cool, Glendale air conditioning is important! If you live or work in the area, you’ll definitely need to have a high quality working air conditioner!

Air conditioning is a phrase that is thrown around on an everyday basis but do you know what air conditioning really is? Air conditioning is actually a phrase that can be used to describe a number of different things, but generally we think of it as a way to cool or de-humidify the air in our homes or work. A Glendale air conditioner is actually very necessary as this area of the world, as the heat can cause anyone to not want to do anything no matter whether they’re at work or trying to relax or do chores at home.

Most Glendale air conditioning systems are actually central
air systems, which is a wise idea because most residents find themselves using their air conditioning often far more than their heater or furnace. There are a wide array of different makers of air conditioning units. It is our job to help you to stay cool and comfortable, and we do that by not only installing air conditioning units, but also by servicing them and repairing them.

If you need your AC maintained or installed, give us a call!

What Our Clients Have To Say

“When I was ready to begin my divorce, I was referred to several law firms, and after consultations with each of them, I chose Reape-Rickett to represent me. From day one, my case was handled professionally as well as personally, which was very important to me as I had never gone through a divorce and I had a lot of questions and concerns. I was also very concerned about costs. Everyone from my attorneys Jim Reape and Kale Heiman to my case worker Ruby to Donna the receptionist were very knowledgeable and walked me through. One of the things that stood ou”. read more – Theresa

“Mr. David Rickett and his staff are phenomenal! When my daughter’s father took me back to court to remodify child support, I was expecting the worst as he had intentions of cutting my daughter’s support in half, despite the fact that he spends 0 time with her and makes significantly more income than I do. I had used this firm in the past to establish paternity and child support, and so I sought legal aid from Mr. Rickett to see if there was some way I wouldn’t lose that money. After even just an hour of consultation, Mr. Rickett gave me all the tools nec”. read more – Jenn

“I personally used David Rickett for my own divorce and he took a situation that could have been volatile and terrifying and was able to calm my nerves while simultaneously working diligently to get me the divorce decree that I sought (and subsequently earned). Most men that have spoken to who have gone through divorces can’t believe that I not only was able to protect myself from paying alimony but most importantly, earned primary custody of my children. I owe Dave Rickett much more than a review. I owe him the invaluable time that I get to spend with”. read more – Randy

“All aspects of my divorce is finally done, after 7 years! David Rickett took over my case after I had to fire two previous attorneys. The first for being arrogant and taking my ex-wife’s side. The second for being incompetent, missing court hearings not following through with his promises. David and staff are extremely professional, knowledgeable, and encouraged me to meet with my ex-wife to work out lingering financial details. At this point she was tired of Lawyer games and desired a fair settlement. This being done, the paperwork was prepared pr”. read more – Paul

Montenegro Orders: What Are They And How Do They Affect Custody And Visitation?

by Reape-Rickett Law Firm – The Reape-Rickett Family Law Firm

Pendente Lite Orders and Final Orders

Final custody orders and pendente lite (temporary) orders are actually very different in that they are analyzed differently under the Family Code. It is important that someone going through a divorce understands and distinguishes between these two types of custody and, thus, better understands the law as it applies to their particular situation.

A pendente lite or temporary custody order is made during the pendency of the dissolution. A Court will apply the “best interests” of the child analysis as enumerated in Family Code, § 3011, in order to determine the best custody arrangement for the minor child. In performing such an analysis and making its temporary custody determination, the Court is predominantly concerned with the “health, safety, and welfare of the child.”

A final custody order is usually made when the dissolution has ended and the couple is divorced. Under Montenegro v. Diaz (2001) 26 Cal.4th 249, the Court must apply a stricter standard when making final custody orders. The test applied is called the “changed circumstances” test. This test is applied as an adjunct to the “best interests” test. In Montenegro, the Court stated that this stricter standard should be applied when a custody order is “final”. The Court reasoned that the “changed circumstances” test should apply this more stringent standard to help preserve continuity and stability in custodial arrangements. Furthermore, only when the “changed circumstances” requirement has been met will the Court move on to the “best interests” analysis in order to make its determination of custody.

When is a Custody Order “Final”?

Under Montenegro, and other appellate decisions, a final custody determination can occur in one of two ways:

1) A stipulated custody order showing a “clear affirmative indication the parties intended such a result.”

2) When the Court makes an order after the issue of custody has been litigated in trial or in a post-judgment modification.

For the first option, an example would be language in a stipulated judgment that unequivocally states the custody order is final under Montenegro v. Diaz. For the second option, an example would be in a judgment based on orders made after trial or an Order to Show Cause regarding a post-judgment modification to custody.

Furthermore, it should be illustrated here that the Court will only apply the “changed circumstances” analysis as it relates to a modification or final determination of custody. If the parent is attempting to modify visitation, the Court will apply the “best interests” analysis. (Enrique M. v. Angelina V. (2004) 121 Cal.4th 1371.)

About the Energy Management (MBA)

As the global environment changes and new technologies evolve, energy management becomes a complex, fast-paced field, requiring new solutions to be delivered by highly skilled and appropriately trained individuals. This Master program Energy Management at TU-Campus EUREF in Berlin not only conveys the latest insights in energy management issues, but discusses toady s challenges and prepares students for leading roles in shaping the industry, and society, for the future ahead

The master programme is taught in English so that it is attractive to international students and connects in-class teaching with eLearning methods (blended learning). The programme was developed in cooperation with transnational companies specialised in global energy management.

The program has been developed in close cooperation with leading enterprises, consultancies and regulatory authorities in the energy sector. The study location is the exciting EUREF-Campus where many industry leaders set up office and think tanks. Excursions to industrial outlets and companies further strengthen the link between theory and practise.

We are part of Technische Universit�t (TU) Berlin, which is one of Germany s largest universities with currently more than 30,000 students. TU Berlin offers a wide range of support and extracurricular activities.

The program s interdisciplinary content, which covers the political, economic, technical and legal aspects of the energy markets, gives students and future employees a distinctive profile and qualifies them for leading positions in the energy sector. Learning and studying in small groups of up to 30 students allows for individual and excellent learning conditions.

Subjects for master theses are top-notch research and often based on industry or government proposals. Skills and knowledge transferred in our course are in high demand in all energy related industries, so carreer opportunities for graduates are exceptional.

Management decisions in the energy sector require profound understanding of the sector s technical, economic, legal, and entrepreneurial peculiarities. Climate change, economic changes, public opinion, technological progress and regulation shape and limit the entrepreneurial leeway, but also offer often unforseen chances and opportunities. The industry therefore requires broadly skilled individuals who are experts in the field.

The master program is taught over a period of three semesters. The first semester covers the technical, economic, entrepreneurial and legal foundations for management decisions in the energy sector; the second semester deepens this view and looks at business practises, primarily of grid-based utilities, and investment; the third semester broadens the view while simultaneously focusing on practise according to student s individual interests. All semesters include lectures, tutorials, seminars as well as excursions, online materials related to practice and extracurricular activities. The master thesis due in the third semester concludes the program.

About the Technical University of Berlin

The internationally renowned Technische Universit�t Berlin (TUB) is located in Germany’s capital city at the heart of Europe. The academic activities are focused on achieving sharply-defined goals: building a distinctive profile for our university, ensuring exceptional performance in research and teaching, providing our graduates with excellent qualifications and a modern approach to university administration.

The TUB strives to promote the dissemination of knowledge and to facilitate technological progress through adherence to the core principles of excellence and quality. Strong regional, national and international networking with partners in science and industry are an important aspect in these endeavours.

TUB is an internationally renowned research-intensive university dedicated to promoting science and technology for the benefit of broader society and committed to the principle of sustainability. The challenges and problems facing modern societies cannot be met on the basis of findings from individual disciplines. TUB is addressing these challenges with the aid of transdisciplinary collaborative projects. The establishment of important research partnerships in the context of the Excellence Initiative, the German Research Foundation (DFG) and European Institute for Innovation and Technology, in addition to constantly increasing third-party funding for the research projects, demonstrate the dynamic developments in this area.

Prestigious science prizes and awards make these successes even more obvious; these include Alexander von Humboldt Chairs, Einstein Chairs, Gottfried Wilhelm Leibniz Prizes, and numerous grants from the European Research Council. Research for Innovation – a credo that TUB impressively implements. Its extraordinary profile as a technical university in association with its humanities, social, planning and economic sciences programs is indeed an excellent breeding ground for strong interdisciplinarity. By combining basic and applied research endeavours, and with close links to partners in science and industry, university researchers tackle societal issues and develop forward-looking solutions.

Thank you very much for all the participants in this contest. I have thoroughly enjoyed exploring your work learned a lot from them. I am sure you had fun creating these too.

So go ahead and enjoy the entries.

Imagine you are the head of training department at ACME Inc. You arrange training programs round the year to empower your team. It is hard work, coordinating between employees, trainers, department heads, venues and coffee machines. What if there is something to help you keep track of all this? I am not talking about getting you a shiny new iPad, you silly. I am talking about a tracker calendar built in Excel that ties everything together (well, almost everything, you still have to fill the coffee machine.)

We are going to build a training program tracker calendar using Excel.

I have an exciting announcement to share with you. My first ever print book Dashboards for Excel . co-authored with Jordan Goldmeier is releasing on15th September .

Dashboards for Excel what is it?

As the name suggests this book is a handy guide for anyone preparing dashboards, management reports and business intelligence workbooks using Excel. The key benefits are,

  • Learn the visualization tools, charts, tables, and graphs important to management.
  • Understand what management doesn’t want to see in a report
  • Turn around dashboards faster and cheaper than ever before
  • Understand the key role dashboards play in an organization
  • Analyze real-world dashboards to apply important features to your own organization
  • Utilize understated, but powerful, Excel formulas and VBA code
  • Avoid common pitfalls in Excel development and dashboard creation
  • Get started with the Excel data model, PowerPivot, and Power Query

As you can see, this is an advanced Excel book with lots of examples, case studies and practical tips.

Cascading drop downs enhance usability of your dashboards interactive workbooks. A cascading drop-down is a 2 or more level selection mechanism. When you have 100s of selection choices, instead of creating one massive drop down or combo-box, you can set up multiple levels of drop downs, so that users can narrow down their selection. For example, users can select Country, State and then City using cascading drop downs.

There are many ways to setup cascading drop downs. You can use formulas coupled with either data validation or form controls. You can also use Slicers. In this video we will review these techniques.

Pivot tables are very powerful analysis tools. They can summarize vast amounts of data with just few clicks. But they are lousy when it comes to output. Imagine the horror of putting a pivot table right inside your beautiful dashboard. One refresh could ruin the layout and create half-an-hour extra work for you.

How to combine the power of pivot tables with elegance of your dashboards?

The answer is: GETPIVOTDATA()

Here is a best practice to improve your dashboard usability. If you have an interactive dashboard, highlight user selections thru conditional formatting.

Check out below quick video to understand what this means.

Whenever you have a dashboard that is quite long or spans across multiple worksheet tabs, it can be hard to use. Here is a simple trick to make your dashboards user friendly. If your dashboard has form controls, create duplicate sets of them and place them in locations where users are looking. For example, If your [ ]

Making your workbooks, charts, dashboards presentations beautiful is a time consuming process. It is a mix of art craft. Naturally, we spend hours polishing that important slideshow or visualization. But do you know about simple features in Excel that can save you a lot of time and help you create gorgeous output?
