proper divorce negotiationsIn Long Island, child custody is often one of the most disputed areas in divorce negotiations. The court determines custody based on the best interest of a child. Unfortunately, this aspect can be the most complicated and controversial component of a divorce proceeding. With that said, children may sometimes become bartering tools, with their well-being getting lost in their parents’ tug-of-war.

Even though their marriage has ended, parents should still manage their children’s growth and development. Both should help their kids understand that although they no longer love each other as husband and wife, they care for each other as a mother and father.

As husband and wife, working together may be impossible for ex-spouses during or after finalizing their divorce in Long Island. As parents, ex-spouses can use different methods and resources to continue raising their children together. These methods and resources can include adhering to a child custody arrangement.

Child Custody Arrangements

Joint

Under this type, both parents have legal custody, with one parent designated as the primary residential guardian. Both ex-spouses also have the right to make major decisions for their kids, including their primary residence, medical and dental treatment, education, religious education, and extra-curricular activities.

Shared

Under this type, both ex-spouses share legal custody, with each parent having specific periods of responsibility with their kids. This arrangement provides both the right to make major decisions on an equal basis.

Sole

If the court doesn’t award joint, one parent will have sole custody, which means one parent has the authority to make legal decisions for their child. The non-custodial parent, on the other hand, receives specific visitation.

As parents, ex-spouses can use different methods and resources to continue raising their kids together. They just have to keep in mind that the most important purpose of any method is to convey to their children that they love and care for them.

Ex-NSA contractor Edward Snowden may have released a series of leaks that threatened global relations, but he says the US can recover from this.

Snowden said that he is not giving up hope for America. In his words, “What makes our country strong is our system of values.”

“We can correct the laws, restrain the overreach of agencies, and hold the senior officials responsible for abusive programs to account,” added the whistleblower.

No chances of coming back just yet

In an online chat, Snowden said he would not be coming back to the US until the laws are changed. He admitted that his return to his motherland “is the best resolution” for everyone, although he later responded, “It’s unfortunately not possible in the face of current whistle-blower protection laws.”

He reasoned that the Whistleblower Protection Act does not include former government contractors like himself.

The former contractor also revealed why he exposed the NSA’s spying actions.

“It’s not good for our country, it’s not good for the world, and I wasn’t going to stand by and watch it happen, no matter how much it cost me,” said Snowden.

The whistleblower is currently in Russia. He is charged with espionage in the US.

Daniel RadcliffeAfter defeating He-Who-Must-Not-Be-Named in the span of eight blockbuster films, Daniel Radcliffe will soon hit the big screen again. This time, he will be the person who built the Brooklyn Bridge – civil engineer Washington Roebling.

‘Massive coup’

The movie is titled “Brooklyn Bridge,” and it will be directed by Douglas McGrath, who made the headlines for “Emma,” a Jane Austen adaptation, which starred Gwyneth Paltrow.

“Having Daniel’s involvement is a massive coup,” said Goldcrest Films’s Pascal Degove.

“Not only is he perfect for the role, but he’s consistently proved himself to be one of the very few actors who is genuinely a massive draw for audiences of all ages,” said Degove.

Historical landmark

Despite the Brooklyn Bridge’s image today of shiny steel cables and massive tourist pull, its construction was widely contested. The bridge is a historical landmark that took 14 years to finish, amounting to $15 million and costing 20 lives.

The bridge was declared as a “marvel of science” when it opened in 1883 despite its issues.

The British Computer Society recruited a network of 400 “master” computer science teachers to train other educators on a new computer science curriculum in schools across England. The specialist teachers will go to different schools and will also provide resources for educators to use in class.

New Curriculum

British ComputerThe new curriculum will replace the current Information and Communications Technology (ICT) curriculum and will start on September.

“This new curriculum will be… much shorter and less prescriptive than the old ICT curriculum and it will allow schools to innovate and be much, much more ambitious,” said Education Secretary Michael Gove.

Coding and Programming

The secretary said the old curriculum focuses purely and narrowly on computer literacy, but the new scheme teaches children information technology, computer science, and digital literacy.

“It will teach them how to code, how to create their own programs, not just how to work the computer, but how a computer works, how to make it work for you,” he said.

Signaling the importance of the connected automobile as the must-have feature for today’s drivers,  Hyundai and Kia models will soon start sporting 3G wireless service this year as part of a deal with Verizon, according to several reports.

Connection on the Road

HyundaiHyundai Motor Co. will unveil a deal with Verizon Communications Inc. to provide wireless service in its U.S. cars and trucks. The 2015 Hyundai Genesis sedan, which will hit showrooms in May, will be the first vehicle to include the service, Mark Bartolomeo, a vice president at Verizon Enterprise Solutions, told Bloomberg.

Eventually, the carmaker will offer the faster 4G. Hyundai’s partner company Kia will also offer Verizon service in the near future.

Verizon has deals with Mercedes-Benz and Toyota, Bartolomeo told Bloomberg.

Connection Competition

The Hyundai-Verizon deal comes after General Motors announced earlier this month it is partnering with AT&T. Starting this summer, 2015 GM models will offer the option. AT&T hasn’t revealed any pricing details, but it will let consumers include their auto-based service to their monthly bill.

Verizon plans to do the same with Hyundai.

The first GM vehicles to offer 4G will be the Corvette Stingray, Chevrolet Volt, Chevy Impala, and Chevy Malibu. Tesla and AT&T also made a deal to bring wireless to cars.
