Anyone taking the California Bar Exam - either for the first time or second or third time - would be smart to hire Grace Hum, a San Francisco, California bar exam tutor and consultant.  Not only is she a legal writing professor at University of San Francisco, she is a former practicing lawyer who knows the pressure associates and law firms feel when they need an associate or clerk to pass the California Bar Exam.  Grace has gotten great bar exam results for people.  Perhaps even more important, since anyone in this position needs to spend considerable, intense time with their California bar exam tutor consultant, Grace is a perfect mix of character traits for a coach.  She is kind, yet firm.  She has a sense of humor - which is critical  in a stressful situation, but is serious about her students' work and future.  She is extremely bright and hard-working.  Any California Bar exam taker or law firm with an associate taking the exam would be lucky to get Grace on their team.  Visit her site at www.gracehumconsulting.com

The Child Abuse Prevention Council of Sacramento, all eight Sacramento birthing hospitals, and 24 Home Visitation programs joined together in June 2005 to unveil an innovative and comprehensive Sacramento County Shaken Baby Syndrome Prevention Program. The program is an evidence-based training program about infant crying and SBS for all new parents (18,000 annually) and is expected to reduce the rates of SBS by 50%. The $50,000 project is funded by the Sutter Medical Center Sacramento Community Collaborative Benefits Grant Program. SBS is the injury of multiple organs including the brain, eyes and bones caused by the violent shaking of an infant or young child. There may be many factors within a family or care giving facility that lead to violent shaking, but typically the “last straw” is inconsolable infant crying. Babies do not die of crying, but they do die from being shaken. These needless infant deaths CAN be prevented and the Shaken Baby Syndrome Prevention Program is designed to do just that. Great programs like these are needed to help under-prepared and under-resourced new parents understand that taking care of babies, while rewarding, will be frustrating. Emotional support and education are needed, otherwise, it is foreseeable that babies will continued to be shaken and suffer traumatic brain damage or death.
