THE LAW OFFICES OF KEN MITCHELL-PHILLIPS - Ken Mitchell-PhillipsProtecting your intellectual property, such as your business name, your inventions, or your trade secrets, is crucial to the success of your business. This intellectual property may be as valuable as the business itself and often times may be your business’ most valuable asset. If your business hasn’t protected its intellectual property, here are 5 ways it can do so:

Patents protect products or processes that are unique, useful, and non-obvious. Under the protection of a patent, you can stop third parties from making, using, or selling your invention for a period of years.

Copyrights protect an original work of authorship, such as literature, music, or computer software. Filing for a copyright is voluntary, but doing so will make it easier to seek court enforcement of your copyright.

Having a unique, identifiable name for your product gives your business an advantage over its competitors. A trademark protects the name of your product by preventing other businesses from selling a product under the same name.

When you create a new organization, you reveal your valuable product ideas, marketing plans, and other intellectual property to employees, suppliers, and other business relationships. Non-Disclosure Agreements control the disclosure and use of your business’ intellectual property, ensuring that your trade secrets are maintained.

If you still have steps to take to ensure your intellectual property is protected, be sure to contact The Law Offices of Ken Mitchell-Phillips today.

For the novice flyer, Single Line Kites are the easiest kites to fly, making them perfect for the whole family. Setup is easy, with many kites ready to launch right out of the box. Single line kites come in many styles, sizes, and colors.

For children, the classic Diamond features fun decorations such as dogs, butterflies, and even sharks! that are visible from the ground. Sleds and Parafoil Kites are also great for kids as they fly in a wide range of wind speeds and have no rigid parts.

For more advanced users, single-line Deltas are stable, easy to handle, and designed to fly well in light wind, making them a very popular design for those that want to take their game to the next level.

Even more advanced, Dual Line Kites have two separate lines which make them solid at speed, dynamic, and maneuverable in virtually any direction. Many dual line kites are Stunt Kites that are fast, challenging to fly, and precisely controlled fliers.

These are just a few examples of what the sport of kiting has in store. For all of your kite flying needs and questions, stop by Elmer’s today!

LIVING RIGHT SENIOR PLACEMENT - Jennifer Cook-BumanAlzheimer’s disease is the 6th leading cause of death, and the only one in the top ten that has no prevention, treatment or cure. The Walk to End Alzheimer’s, hosted by the Alzheimer’s Association, is the largest annual fundraiser for dementia related education, research, care and support for the people and care givers affected by this devastating disease.

Help us reach the goal of a world without Alzheimer’s: If you don’t know the warning signs of Alzheimer’s besides memory loss, check out this excerpt from one of the most popular articles available through the Alzheimer’s Association (www.alz.org), “10 Early Signs and Symptoms of Alzheimer’s”:

--Memory loss that disrupts daily life; forgetting things but remembering later is normal, repeating the same information is a red flag

--Challenges in problem solving or planning

--Difficulty completing familiar tasks at home, at work, or at leisure

--Confusion with time or place

--Trouble understanding spatial relationships and visual images – this is when driving becomes difficult

--New problems with words in speaking and/or writing (i.e. calling a watch a hand clock)

--Misplacing things and losing the ability to retrace your steps

--Decreased or poor judgement

--Withdrawal from work or social activities – including lifelong hobbies

--Changes in mood and personality – such as confusion, anxiety, or suspicion

If you notice any of the 10 warning signs in yourself or someone you know, schedule an appointment with your doctor. To continue supporting the fight against Alzheimer’s, register on www.ALZ.org to join team Living Right for the Walk to End Alzheimer’s.

Living Right Senior Placement offers assistance to people trying to find the most appropriate housing options for seniors in the Portland metro area. We work with retirement communities, assisted living, memory care communities and adult foster care homes. Services are typically FREE to the client.

THE LAW OFFICES OF KEN MITCHELL-PHILLIPS - Ken Mitchell-PhillipsSmall and mid-sized businesses often find it difficult to determine if they should rent or own commercial property. Purchasing commercial real estate is a complex, often difficult process with a fair amount of risk attached to it. Nevertheless, a commercial property purchase allows you to depreciate the property and reduce your taxable income, as well as giving you greater control over your overhead costs. If you’re ready to own your own commercial real estate, I’ve got a few tips to guide you.

Ask yourself a lot of questions: The biggest question to ask is “Are you ready to make an investment of this size?” If you are ready, you’ll need to grapple with issues relating to what kind of location you need, how much work you’re willing to put into the property, and how much risk you can tolerate.

Evaluate the property: You should visit many different properties to figure out which properties you fit with. Your situation and needs are unique, and not every building will fit them. Location, physical condition, allowable uses, adequacy of access, and the opportunity for expansion or leasing should all be considered.

Conduct a feasibility study: Feasibility studies are a great way to stress test potential properties. Study your business’ market, the market(s) of your potential properties, and your own finances to determine how viable your options are, and how much margin for error you have.

Call the Law Offices of Ken Mitchell-Phillips: The Law Offices of Ken Mitchell-Phillips can advise and assist you every step of the way.

PACIFIC WEST ROOFING - Stan RobinsonPutting down a roof coating is one of the best things you can do to extend the life of your flat roof. A properly applied roof coating will reduce stress on your HVAC system, protect against leaks, and can save you money—in more than one way!

But traditional water-based coatings like acrylic can degrade from UV rays and soften under standing water; that’s why at Pacific West Roofing we use a silicone restoration membrane to coat your existing flat roof. Silicone has a number of advantages to acrylic:

• It’s incredibly durable, withstanding extreme temperatures, wind-driven sand, hail, harsh UV rays, and pooled or ponding water.

• It’s energy efficient, shielding your building from the sun so your energy use is reduced, saving you money.

PACIFIC WEST ROOFING - Brian Jarvis• It’s easy to use; a roof in good condition may just need minor repairs around pipe flashings, if any repairs are needed at all! After a thorough pressure washing, the roof is primed and coated, and can be touched up with a brush or roller.

Best of all, silicone roof coatings are amazingly costeffective, and can add years to your roof. While a full roof replacement will typically cost around $8/foot, you can have a silicone restoration membrane laid down for about half that price.

With 15-20 years of life, a silicone coating may be just the thing your roof needs. For superior roofing options, give Pacific West Roofing a call at (503) 635-8706.

Brought to you by Dr. Michael Davis - Northwest Women's Clinic - WOMEN'S HEALTH INSIDER -


NORTHWEST WOMEN'S CLINIC - Dr. Michael DavisMany of my patients bring fears and concerns about getting an epidural in labor. Happily, this leads to a discussion of the facts and the science surrounding epidurals. A review of 38 studies comparing just under 10,000 women who USED epidurals to women who did NOT in labor determined the following risks:

Lower Risks: Epidural users reported a reduction in pain scores of 3.3 on average after getting an epidural, reporting on a scale of 1 (minimal pain) to 10 (worst pain imaginable). Epidural users were less likely to need any other pain medications, and babies were at a decreased risk of developing acidosis.

Higher Risks: Epidural users had more trouble emptying the urinary bladder, as well as more risk of difficulty moving the legs; this is not a surprise, given how the epidural medicine works. Also, epidural users were slightly more likely (1.2 times) to get oxytocin during labor, and the average length of labor was 13.6 minutes longer for epidural users.

NO DIFFERENCE: There are many myths about epidurals the study found to be false:

No difference in overall risk of cesarean delivery

No difference in risk of backache

No difference in five minute Apgar score

No difference in maternal satisfaction with pain relief

My best advice is to have a discussion with your labor and delivery provider before and during the labor process to help you decide if an epidural is right for you.

KUHNHAUSEN'S FURNITURE SHOWCASE - Shelley Kuhnhausen HowardYou just bought that piece of furniture from Kuhnhausen’s that ties that whole room together. Whether it’s that solid cherry buffet you’ve been dreaming of for months, or the chic leather chair that will go perfect by your lamp for reading, a new furniture addition can be exciting. Now that you have your new furniture, here are Kuhnhausen’s tips for taking care of it:

• In order to enhance and protect the beauty of wood, use a silicone-free polish. Guardsman has both a convenient spray as well as cream polish, both of which we carry. With a unique blend of natural oils, Guardsman offers your wood pieces luster with no artificial gloss or oily residue.

• Full grain leather is the strongest upholstery material available. To keep it strong for you and your family, remove any dust and apply a leather conditioner to keep your leather pieces supple and nourished. It’s as easy as that!

• For upholstered furniture, you’ll want to follow the fabric manufacturer’s recommendation. The typical codes, “S” and “W”, advise you to use a solvent-based cleaning product or a water-based cleaning product, respectively.

• If your piece has loose pillow backs and/or seats, turning and rotating the backs and seats will ensure a longer cushion and fabric life. Vacuum your upholstered furniture to remove everyday dust and keep your fabric looking fabulous.

If you’re ready for a new furniture addition, head to Kuhnhausen’s. We offer quality furniture and would love to help you with your next furniture purchase!

NIELSEN'S JEWELERS - Jan NielsenJewelry is all about the story behind it. So here’s a story for you: Just the other day a woman came in with her fiancée carrying a diamond ring made of white gold. The ring was her grandmother’s, and had been with her family for 75 years. She loved the ring because it was her grandmother’s, but she could never see herself wearing it.

That’s when I told her all about Nielsen’s jewelry redesign service. We are able to take the gems off of your old jewelry and recast the metal into the custom design of your choice. If you’d like a little luster added, we can match loose gemstones and diamonds to your gems for a completely redesigned and totally beautiful piece.

Using both wax models and computer-assisted design, we ensure that your new piece of jewelry is exactly what you want—before we ever cast it!

If you’d prefer to keep just the stones, don’t limit yourself to just rings. We can help you create that perfect necklace, those earrings that make the whole room stop and stare, even that bracelet that you never want to take off.

We ended up designing a new piece for the woman and her fiancée, adding a few diamonds and sapphires to grandma’s recast white gold to create a stunning new ring. They loved it, and if you have any jewelry you’re looking to redesign, we can create a piece you’ll love too.

Brought to you by Griffin Hampson - Cartridge-Network - PRINTER, INK & TONER INSIDER -


CARTRIDGE-NETWORK - Griffin HampsonNew printers for both consumers and business have a cautionary warning. Both buy on price or perceived savings while rarely having knowledge of each printer’s associated cost-per page (CPP).

New printer models generally replace a previous model with similar capabilities. Rarely do new models possess startling new capabilities. Printers have a market life cycle of three to four years until replaced by another new model for that segment, just like cars. The new Ford Fairlane, replaces the previous Fairlane. However gasoline is gasoline.

If you use aftermarket factory remanufactured or compatible cartridges which provide 30% to 60% savings, there is another key factor involved with buying a new model printer.

New model printers use “new to the world” cartridge(s) only capable of working in a specific model or series. Each new model or series’ OEM cartridges are your only alternative for a year, or more, until aftermarket factories catch up with collected empty / recycled cartridges, reverse engineered chips, parts and the appropriate ink or toner formulation. So your cartridge cost and associated CPP will be full retail.

Furthermore, most printers ship with an “Introductory”, “Set Up” or “Starter” cartridge(s) with a fraction of the Standard or Low Yield cartridge(s)’ stated “page rating”, let alone the High Yield version with significantly higher page rating and as a consequence a much lower CPP.

How do we approach customers’ printer purchases? Know your “needs” vs. “wants”. Color vs. black only?, copy & scan?, wireless?, duplexing? Routine volumes (measured by reams of paper), user(s) environment. Call or stop by to learn how to get the most value for your money.
