Pop-ups Are Hip, But Are They Cool?

This morning I logged into my email account to find a missive from the LinkedIn Cardozo members forum. A member had posted a blog entry entitled, Pop-up Restaurants: 5 Legal Questions Every Operator Must Ask. The writer listed liquor licensing, tortΒ  liability, sales tax collection, employer/employee relationships, and lastly, “who pays for a violation?”, as things to worry about.

TheFormTool 2.0


Software Review Update: On February 10, 2012, I reviewed TheFormTool, loved it, and didn’t think it could get much better. I was wrong.

Your Dollar Matters just released version 2.0 and its new features include more than two dozen sophisticated math functions to its already robust toolkit, including Days and Dates, Minimum, Maximum and Count, plus PMT, ROUND, RAISE, ROOT, LOG, ABS, and a dozen more. Like its other functions, TheFormTool PRO 2.0β€˜s math functions can be linked and nested in almost endless combinations to support even the most complex calculations.

TheFormTool combines a dozen core capabilities with an intuitive menu and commands that are fully integrated into MS Word. No change in the the price, it’s still $89.Β The basic version is still free and can be downloaded from their homepage.
