A San Francisco woman who said she was wrongfully arrested in 2014 in connection with a domestic violence incident has reached a settlement with the city's Police Department, her attorneys announced today.
 
In her lawsuit, Dora Mejia claimed that San Francisco officers denied her request for a Spanish-speaking interpreter and then arrested her, even though she was the alleged victim in the incident, leaving her three children with her allegedly abusive ex-partner.

As someone who is paid to teach students to translate literary texts, I tell them, if you want to be a good translator, don’t translate – you have to live it
 
If you find yourself in court, you have the right to an interpreter. But exercising that right can be challenging in a province as diverse as Ontario

How to Master Your Mornings
Morning is the most important part of your day because it sets up how the rest of the day will unfold. If you get into a great morning routine, you will see yourself having instantly better days. Here are some easy ways to Master Your Mornings and recharge your day:
 
Set a Sleep Schedule
The first step in mastering your mornings is mastering your sleep schedule. Make sure you are going to bed at the same time every night so that you are well rested for that early wake up time. Stick to your schedule so your body can get accustomed to this new lifestyle.
 
Nightly Ritual
Even more important than your morning ritual, a nightly ritual is critical in determining how well rested you are to start the next day. Do your best to stay away from screens 30 minutes before you plan on going to bed. By doing this, your body releases Melatonin which tells your body you are ready to go to bed.
 
Alarm Out of Sight
The snooze button can be a daily battle. Put your alarm out of reach, ideally in another room. This forces you to get up out of bed and start the process of your body waking up. If you have to, set multiple alarms so it doesn't let you go back to sleep. 
  
Next Step
Make sure that once you're up, you define your next move. Turn on the lights and take your first action. This could be brushing your teeth, hoping in the shower, or getting to the kitchen to make breakfast. Whatever it is, make sure you decide on an action and stick to it every day.
 
If you're looking to get more out of your day, start by mastering your mornings. You will see that this will be something that exponentially changes your level of productivity, motivation and results.
