2017 Table of Contents Continues Themes From 2016. See TOC for: (1) 2017 now thru Sept. 21; (2) 2016 All; and (3) Sept. 2012 – June 2014, Reverse Chrono, and (4) See Also More Info Below. [Published Jan. 9 2017, last updated July 1, 2019]

This post presents three different ways to view three different time spans’s tables of contents.  I had previously posted for two of those time spans, but never in page-sized (8X11) format for viewing or printing.  This post pulls it all together and put the links in one place to older tables of contents direct from here (in 8X11) or directly on their original posts (links to those posts).

POST TITLE: 2017 Table of Contents Continues Themes From 2016. See TOC for: (1) 2017 now thru Sept. 21; (2) 2016 All; and (3) Sept. 2012 – June 2014, Reverse Chrono, and (4) See Also More Info Below. [Published Jan. 9 2017, last updated July 1, 2019]. (case-sensitive, WordPress-generated shortlink-ends 5qZ, first published Jan. 9, 2017, second half of post title and substantial updates added in late September, 2017).  About 9,000 words.

Terrible title.  But, here you have:

Tables of Contents for:

  • 2017 (most) 
  • 2016 (all)
  • 2015 none (I published not one post that year for personal reasons).
  • 2012-2014 (some),** and
  • significant “Value-Added” content, the  (4) See Also More Info Below referenced in the title.***

**I got as far back as about Sept. 21, 2012, and after June 29, 2014, I stopped blogging, again, for personal reasons, basic limitations on one person’s waking hours.

For posts before about Sept 21 or 24, 2012 (i.e., March 2009 – 2010-2011 & almost ¾ of 2012), you must use Archives function by month or search individually if you’re aware of a post title or keywords…Earlier posts are in rougher format (I am a self-taught blogger and there is a technical, not just subject matter, learning curve!) but I believe the basic principles repoprted that far back still apply.


**Now that its mid-2019, I’m still blogging, and have even integrated links to another blog’s contents, starting with an index to their before-and-after (as I publish them gradually on this one), I am removing from here most of that “more info below” content to separate pdfs or (newly published) posts, leaving some links and some footprint text instead. The extra info just takes up too much vertical web page real estate, so I evicted it.

On review, I see that most of the (4) More Info Below is my drill-down and write-up of an important organization called “CENIC” for which I’m sure every United States state (and probably the territories) has a corresponding arrangement.  They have to, because it deals with provision of high-speed internet access for governments and universities.   My writeup represents a lot of time and effort but it’s got to go.  I’ll describe it briefly, move to a new post, leaving a footprint here (a link or two and one image) as footnote on where I was as a blogger at the time.  Good information, good demonstration of a drill-down and why to do them, but it still should’ve begun as its own post. Its presence complicated the already complicated layout here.

There’s also some more info on top, though.  Let me summarize:

[Some Must-know Cold, Hard, Facts about Comprehensive Annual Financial Reports aka CAFRs.]

Because this was the leading edge of my whole blog, in one subsequent update I included a reference to another of my blogs economicbrain.wordpress.com, blog name “Cold,Hard.Fact$.featuring a large image of the tall buildings towering over a city landscape (and a long caption go with it) right below the “Read-More” link.

They are government buildings in downtown Oakland, California; that blog features government accounts as a window into its purposes. It shows where I began working through the government comprehensive annual financial statements (CAFRs) which I began featuring also here in 2012, as soon as I saw and from seeing, understood their significance.

This significance is now integrated into the substance of FamilyCourtMatters.  If and when we are doing “drill-downs” on any entity, understanding that “substrata” is close to solid ground.  It’s a bottom line, foundation-level indicator of what is being built on top throughout all government and commercial activities. I look at the US, but other countries also produce financials:  their purpose is to better facilitate international trade and measurements. Basically, without seeing these, no one can in effect understand government(s) or interpret statements from governments on their current condition.

The parallel for corporate or business activities (including all advocacy groups registered as nonprofit or other businesses) would be audited financial statements for any entity — or sometimes these are presented as “consolidated.” Both the audited financial statements AND tax returns matter and are needed (but, financial statements are only required to be made available to the public, as I understand it, for nonprofits — and with plenty of exclusions, such as some types of religious institutions.  They MUST be made available to the public for government entities).

Up until that point I was tracking mostly federal U.S. Dept of HHS grants which affect family court and domestic violence, welfare reform issues and as I recall (of the years 2009-2012!) a lot of tax returns, as well as reporting on the issues themselves.

Pls. click here ~>my 2012 blog “Cold,Hard.Fact$“ and why I still refer to it on FamilyCourtMatters (for post 2017 TOC, -5qZ)..2019July01 Mon ~>for a short statement  which I just added/uploaded as pdf. This is not a link to the blog, but a statement about it. Thanks.

Moving on …

This three different (by time span) tables of contents in printable or just conveniently viewable 8X11 format are great for an overview of my work up through those dates. If you want to just view them directly on a blog, this post also provides links to do that also.**

Because the format is new, I’ve also posted images of how those 8X11 formats will look.

This post as sort of a “parent” contains both content for 2017** and links to content for the other years, as the full post title laboriously summarizes. I kept just this one “sticky” making it a visible access to the others. It’s basically a front-door way to scan dozens, if not hundreds, of post titles for an overview of what I’ve been writing about. **(For 2017 no more clicks needed, just scroll down)

Table of Contents

(June 29, 2014..back to Sept. 24, 2012

I started this blog in spring 2009. It is my continuous show-and-tell learning curve exposing, as the motto says, Family –and Conciliation — Court Operations, Practices, and History from the early 1990s and earlier.

Nothing was posted or added to this table of contents from June 29, 2014 (Broken Courts, Flawed Practices, Parade of Fools) throughout 2015.  On January 23, 2016 (2016 More Business As Usual in MN? (Criminalizing, Terrorizing, Jailing Mothers)) I resumed publishing posts.  My personal situation wasn’t particularly better at this time, it had just progressed, and I felt it urgent to continue this line of reporting, as I had not stopped investigating (or writing it up off-blog) meanwhile.

This BLOG has two separate Tables of Contents in two different posts, both near the very top of the blog: [Update: as of 1/8/2017, I’m starting one for the new year also…]
