Various publishers promote journal impact factors JIF to
measure ” the importance of articles by the number of  times
an article is cited.  This measure in light of the continuing change
of technical literature is changing and deemed less significant.

Did you know you can change irrevocable trusts that you create
with your attorney when (1) tax law is revised or cease to exist,
(2) family circumstances change, (3) errors exist in the the documents?
 This is a document professionals should know about and
decide if and when it fits in your financial plan.

Linkedin profiles have not and should not replace resumes.
They are part of your professional presence and a
link is offered.

JIF DE-EMPHASIS
Ewen Calloway summarized recent discussions on the use of
journal rating and previewed articles in various fields that
suggest it going away.  Worth looking at.
 
FINANCIAL DECISIONS FOR YOUR FAMILIES
Trusts are often created to save paying federal estate taxes in
relation to a specific tax law.  There are, according to Cody,
Cody and McCarthy, five ways trusts can be modified:  (a)
have a judge restate your intent, (b) adjust pay-out options
to current situations, (c) change the terms of the trust due to
unforseen circumstances, (d) invoke a trust advisor  without
going to court, (e) consider another “do-over” trust.

So, if you find a need to modify your trust, or you waiver
in creating an irrevocable trust, there are things you should
know to help you.

LINKEDIN PROFILES
Robert Hellmann wrote that resumes and profiles have many
of the same information.  But a resume helps us obtain interviews
and the profile does support the interview screening process
and much more.   Hellmann proposes an active profile approach
in your job search.
Don’t indicate openness to opportunities in your Headline
Don’t put unemployed or looking for a job in your profile
Do consider using more informal language than the targeted
resume.

Hellmann’s article is worth taking seriously in your career
plan.

BONUS VIDEO SERIES:   The Australian series “The Future
of Water
” is definitely of high value to view.  Each segment
offered incredible insights into the bigger picture.  I was
very surprised by the underground reservoir in South
America that was recently defined.

    Elsevier is coming in with an “unrepresentative” measure of journal
    article importance
    a recent note reports.
     All the more need to support open access publication.
