We want to thank our clients as we near the end of 2019. It is also a great time to reflect on this past year, and decade, and think of the wonderful experiences we have enjoyed in providing court reporting services to our clients in Calgary and Edmonton. The growth we enjoyed, the legal services delivered to clients and the challenges we accepted are all part doing what we have done this past year.
Entering 2020 will bring new and exciting challenges. Additions of technology will further enhance our court reporters to be tasked with new challenges they will face in the legal field. Technology is something that has always been embraced here at Calgary and Edmonton Independent Reporters.
Some of the things Independent Reporters (IR) will continue to do is to give back to or communities and those that are not as fortunate as we are. Being a locally-owned company and making our home here in Alberta, we see the struggles Albertans continue to face each day. While we are still providing some thank-you’s to our client for their patronage, IR feels even stronger about making sure other groups in our province also have extra for them to continue providing services to those that need it more.
Our donations this year are made to the groups below. We encourage you to learn more about these groups that we support. You can click on the names below and you will be forwarded to their websites.
As court reporters, transcripts and words are the core of what we provide for clients. Knowledge of words, and their meaning, is a significant part of ensuring accurate creation of transcripts for discoveries, depositions, trials and hearings. The better we understand the meanings of words, the easier it makes our jobs.
That’s why we are always fascinated with words, or word games. Take for example, palindromes. Palindromes are character-units that read the same backward as forward.
Palindromes is derived from the Greek words, “palin,” meaning again, and “drom” – from “dramien,” meaning, to run.
Now here are some examples. Many of these you will say, Geez, I should have been able to guess a bunch of these without seeing them. But just for fun, here they are.
