I had that purple jacket on, walking around the shop for like 20 minutes trying to convince myself I'd ever actually wear it, lol. Got a compliment from a very nice African-American lady about it, but I just couldn't do it. Happy you got it, SB!Quote:
EXIF tags. If you upload pics from your computer, you can download an EXIF-stripper program that will delete the tags that are confusing your browser. Or, if you do it from your phone, some image-editing apps will automatically get rid of the EXIF tags if you make any edit and save the pic. I use Photoshop Express.post #24800 of 6013812/31/15 at 8:01amQuote:Originally Posted by Orgetorix

I hired an Ex Stripper to rotate in the background and all my pics have been great ever since.post #24801 of 6013812/31/15 at 8:02am
I know we've got a few Cincinnati guys in here, some pretty good prices on some outdoor shoes/boots and it sounds like you could negotiate him down a bit more. Tempts me to make a trip up to Jungle Jims and pick up a pair or two while I'm there.post #24802 of 6013812/31/15 at 8:16ampost #24803 of 6013812/31/15 at 8:45ampost #24804 of 6013812/31/15 at 8:46amQuote:Originally Posted by Nobleprofessor
This next one is very interesting. The seller had a tag on it that said miniature Morroccan Tea Pot. I am not so sure that it is Moroccan considering the markings on the bottom and also the figure on the lid.
When the lady running the estate sale lifted up the lid, she said "Uh oh." She said it should have been listed as Silver. I am not a Silver expert, but I wonder if that is what the markings/characters on the bottom are.
Finally another Japanese treasure.?
An antique handwarmer (?)
I am finally listing some of the teapots I found this summer at an estate sale because I have had to write another very big check to an expert witness in two of my cases and I need some money!
Anyone have any info on these?post #24805 of 6013812/31/15 at 8:59ampost #24806 of 6013812/31/15 at 9:06ampost #24807 of 6013812/31/15 at 9:25amQuote:

Expert witness are hired to offer their opinions on matters that require expert testimony because it is something that is beyond the common knowledge of a jury. Expert witnesses are used in the overwhelming majority of civil lawsuits and their opinions can be as mundane as interpreting building codes or performing reconstruction analysis that includes computer generated animation.
Some examples would be, in a medical malpractice case, both sides would hire experts to offer opinions about the standard of care (the doctor/hospital/nurse do what is appropriate to diagnose and treat the patient). Or an Expert might say that what the doctor did was wrong or what the doctor did was correct.
In personal injury cases experts are hired to offer their opinions about the persons injuries and whether they will need future medical treatment.
Or, in a construction lawsuit, an expert might offer an opinion that the structure was not built properly and the contractor/engineer/architect failed to consider weight, or used the wrong type of lumber, or fasteners, or whatever.
Or a party might hire an expert to opine that a product was dangerously designed. Or an expert could offer an opinion that an accident could not have caused the injuries the plaintiff claims.
In one case I had, the plaintiffs claimed that a car was washed off the road and end up in a drainage culvert and the driver was trapped and drown. He did an accident reconstruction and was able to show that the accident could not have happened that way. Or in one case, an owner of a shopping center filed a claim for hail damage to the roof of the shopping center and the expert did all sorts of tests firing iceballs from a machine like a gun to determine if the damage could have been caused by hail.
In this particular case, it is a police shooting case. I had to hire an expert to offer his opinion as a police offer and as a swat negotiator. He also literally wrote the book on Crisis Intervention Training that police officers take on how to deal with a mentally ill suspect. He had to offer his opinion about whether they followed their training, whether they engaged in excessive force and whether they could (and should) have pursued a Non-lethal option in dealing with the subject.
Because the person was killed, I also had to hire an economic expert to calculate the decedent's lost wages for his life based on his current earning capacity, education, and work history and to come up with a number that he would have earned during his lifetime and then to reduce that by his own consumption and reduce it to present value. In federal court, these kinds of opinions cannot be offered by anyone other than expert because it is not within the common knowledge exception.
When I was at my previous firm, I defended these kind of cases and I had no problem hiring as many experts as I needed because the insurance company was paying for it. Now, that I am representing the plaintiff (the person bringing the lawsuit), I am paying for this. Assuming the case is settled or we win at trial, I get my expenses back. But, some of these type of cases can take years.post #24808 of 6013812/31/15 at 10:04ampost #24809 of 6013812/31/15 at 10:30ampost #24810 of 6013812/31/15 at 10:30amBig thanks to @concealed and @WillWork4Coffee for the suggestions on where to hit while up in Boston!
