How DWI Victims Can Fight Back Against Injustice with an Experienced Attorney

Driving while intoxicated is a serious issue in Texas with someone being hurt or killed in crashes directly involving alcohol every 20 minutes. The guidelines and consequences for even first-time offenses are strict like most states, but official statements from the Texas Department of Transportation (linked above) do not have any mention of restitution to victims in a DWI involving alcohol or other drugs. The only restitution specifically mentioned for victims is for those who are children under the age of 15, with higher fines and jail times, but still no specifics on helping a victim of a devastating crash involving a DWI. This is where a DWI attorney in Dallas can help, as their knowledge allows victims and families to get some well-earned peace after falling prey to someone else’s gross negligence.

DWI can cause many costs to both perpetrators and victims. In the United States alone, there have been 10,228 lives lost with a total of 4 million convicted DWIs (These statistics come from 2010 data from the CDC and National Highway Traffic Safety Administration respectively). However, one might just be thinking about injuries resulting from a DWI crash and not the damage these injuries can cause. Of course, DWIs have cost victims a staggering $12 billion in medical expenses; The injuries do have long-lasting consequences though as the medical costs are nothing compared to the loss in quality of life, general expense and loss of work.

Again, a DWI or personal injuries attorney is paramount in this situation as an experienced lawyer on the victim’s side can ensure fair compensation for the victim. Back to the statistics though, loss of work resulting from an injury in a DWI crash has costed both tax payers and victims $32 billion. This statistic from loss of work due to inability to work, the government paying benefits to victims and legal settlements. Cost of loss in quality-of-life offers an even scarier statistic though, with the costs related to that being $71 billion. These costs can cover anything from the inability to perform household work due to an injury to the loss of essential abilities such as mental function, driving, family life and more. DWIs also cause a ridiculous amount of property damage, with a total of $6 billion of property ranging from a citizen’s vehicle to the government’s guardrails and signs. Other costs incurred by DWIs include $4 billion in legal costs, $4 billion in insurance costs and $3 billion in miscellaneous costs such as traffic delays and the cleanup of crashes. Overall, DWIs cost the USA an approximate total of $122 billion each year.

These ridiculous costs are precisely why each and every victim should hire an experienced DWI or personal injury attorney regardless of the state. A good attorney will ensure that any and all costs incurred to the victim or victims by injury or otherwise will be paid in full. An experienced attorney will also squash any attempts at an insurance company trying to downsize on a …

Becoming a Child Custody Lawyer

This professional is a family lawyer who specializes in child custody cases, helping to protect children’s rights. To become a child custody lawyer you would have to pursue the same path as any lawyer but specializing in child custody cases. In most states, you would need an undergraduate degree, like a bachelor’s degree before you can go to law school. When getting your law degree your bachelor’s degree does not need to be in a subject related to law. If you have already chosen your career path there are some existing pre-law specializations. For example, when specializing in custody law, you could major in social work, philosophy, or psychology. Any of these majors will help give you a unique education that will help you further down your path to become a child custody lawyer.

When getting your bachelor’s degree make sure that you are maintaining a high GPA as this may help you get into this type of school. On the road to becoming a child custody lawyer, applying to such a school is often stressful and rigorous but is a necessary step to becoming a lawyer. When completing all of the required application letters take your time to ensure that you are doing them correctly. If any have a deadline to summit them, try to get them done first so they will get there on time. During the application process for law school, you will need letters of recommendations so try to get professionals you know or former teachers to write the recommendation letters for you.

To get into law school most require applicants to submit standardized test scores that focus on the general law. One such test is the Law School Admission Test (LSAT). This is a very hard test to pass but is needed in order to get into law school. Before taking the exam experts recommend that you study for this test at least six to twelve months in order to pass, get a good grade and possible admission to law school. When attending law school, you should tailor any elective courses so they relate to family law subjects. While at law school and during your undergraduate schooling you should look for assistant or internships with a family law firm. This extra training can provide you with a wealth of information it can also help you establish a professional contact network. Once you have completed law school you will have to sit and pass the bar exam for your state or the state where you will be practicing as a child custody lawyer.

Although you are specializing in child custody cases, you will start out as a family attorney. It may take several years to gain expertise and become an established child custody lawyer.…

Sexuality in Politics

The glass ceiling against the rise of women into positions of power have seen many great brains kept back from excelling to their full extent. In recent times women, like Helen Clark, the ex-Prime Minister of New Zealand, have put themselves forward for the role of United Nations Secretary General. There has never been a woman in this position and it is not surprising that they were defeated.

Men have such prejudicial views against women and the number of them who select the successful candidate for this position must play a role in who they elect. The Security Council recommends a candidate as worthy to the General Assembly who then vote on it.

The first is made up of primarily the five victors of WWII, they being Russia, Germany, France, England, and the USA who are the permanent members. Ten non-permanent members are then appointed to serve 2 year terms. This gives an overall number of 15 members.

In 2016-2017 the latter comprised delegates from the following nations: Bolivia; Egypt; Ethiopia; Italy; Japan; Kazakhstan; Senegal; Sweden; Ukraine; and Uruguay. One must question the prejudice of many of these nations against women in leadership roles. The predominantly Muslim and Catholic countries would have to be counted as among them.

In local politics the problem remains just as potent an issue. In Australia the recent Labour government tried to lift the glass ceiling by issuing quotas to ensure that some 50{512b763ef340c1c7e529c41476c7e03bc66d8daea696e1162822661d30dde056} of its members are women. That, however, is not the same in the Liberal Party where the Prime Minister has only 3 female members in his cabinet.

The sexuality in politics is another example of how religion rules the world, as the majority of Liberal members are advocates of either Catholicism or the prejudice of their upbringing. As part of my research the role of religion was a strong focus as it all started from Babylon, the home of Islam.

How this has played out in the Word Order and the maintaining of the Establishment is part of the role of the one dubbed 666. He was Islamic and of the Amor, the people who built Roma (reverse Amor). He laid out the rules for the economy, the law, and rights of inheritance. He also formed the Catholic Church in 325 AD and put up the image of Jesus Christ (Revelation 13:12-18).

His impact has survived because of the religions that are protected by the laws he laid down. Governments will continue to be ruled by them as long as they survive. That means no one will or can break the glass ceiling against women while sexuality play a part in refusing them high office.…

What Is the Tennessee Plan for Medicare Supplemental Policies?

When you retire, you are faced with some important personal decisions. That is why the State of Tennessee and POMCO are working together to make one of those decisions (Medicare supplemental healthcare) easier for you. As a retiree, you may be eligible for The Tennessee Plan. This Plan is designed specifically for retired state employees, teachers and local government employees and their eligible spouses and dependents. The Tennessee Plan Can Help Fill the Medicare Coverage Gap If you have Medicare coverage, you likely need The Tennessee Plan to help cover some of the expenses that Medicare does not. The Tennessee Plan helps fill most of the coverage gaps that Medicare creates.

If you are eligible, you can enroll in The Tennessee Plan coverage, commonly known as Medigap Coverage. The Tennessee Plan is a standard Medicare supplemental policy designed to fill in the coverage gaps in your Medicare Part A & B coverage.

What Kind of Gaps Do  Medicare Parts A & B Have?

In 2010, some of the charges Medicare requires you to pay include the following:

•  A $1,100 deductible out of your own pocket each time you are hospitalized.

•  Then $275 a day for the 61st to the 90th day in the hospital and $550 a day thereafter up to a 60 day lifetime reserve maximum.   Plus a $155 deductible for approved doctors’ bills and outpatient expenses and then you must pay an additional 20{512b763ef340c1c7e529c41476c7e03bc66d8daea696e1162822661d30dde056} of the Medicare approved charges after that.

You may be responsible for any amount over the Medicare approved charges from providers who do not accept Medicare assignment. Even with Medicare coverage, your out- of-pocket expenses can add up fast and cause financial difficulty. Coverage under The Tennessee Plan can help fill some of these gaps. There are 10 standard approved (by federal law) Medicare supplemental policies that can be offered. The Tennessee Plan offers benefits comparable to the Medicare Supplemental Standard Plan D.

Who is Eligible to Enroll?

Any retired State of Tennessee employee or Local Education certified teaching staff receiving a monthly retirement allowance from the Tennessee Consoli- dated Retirement System (TCRS), or higher education optional retirement plan who is eligible for Medicare Part A may apply for coverage under this Plan. Retired Local Education support staff and Local Government participants eligible for Medicare Part A who receive a monthly retirement allowance from the TCRS are also eligible to apply for coverage. Your legal married spouse and eligible dependents may also apply. If you qualify and enroll for coverage within 60 days of your initial eligibility, you cannot be denied coverage because of your age or health.

Who Administers  The Tennessee Plan?

The Tennessee Plan features Medicare supplemental coverage sponsored by the State of Tennessee with claims administered by POMCO. The Plan offers you quality coverage at lower group premium rates. Since the monthly premiums are not based on age, they will not increase just because you get older. Premium rates may increase due to increasing costs, which would happen …

6 Pack Abs Meets Law of Attraction – 4 Steps to Getting the Body of Your Dreams

What does metaphysics have to do with your desire for a beautifully toned body? One could say nothing if you really don’t know or care what metaphysics is. On the other hand, someone could get really interested in how to leverage the natural laws of the universe (metaphysics) to build the body of their dreams.

What are the natural laws of the Universe? There are several but for the purposes of this article, we’ll start with the basics. The first fundamental principal or law is that everything is a vibration. Everything you see around you (your car, computer, pen, paper, clothing, furniture, fence posts, buildings, sidewalks, roads, etc.) at one point in time, started out as a vibration. We call these vibrations thoughts. In Napoleon Hill’s book, Think and Grow Rich he stated that ‘thoughts are things’. Things that vibrate at the same frequency attract to one another. That attraction is called the Law of Attraction.

If you have the power to think up the idea of a great body, to have beautifully sculpted muscles and if you hold that thought long enough in your mind, then the Universe must deliver your desire, it is law.

How does one put this idea into practice? By reprogramming your subconscious mind through repetitious actions of your conscious mind.

Here is a daily practice where you can leverage the power of the Universal Law of Attraction.

Step one: Get clear about what you want. Simply saying that you want a better body isn’t enough. You need to surround yourself with images of the body of your dreams. These can be pictures out of any magazine or an artistic drawing. Once you get the picture, if it doesn’t look like you, simply cut off the head of the image and paste an image of your face/head in its place. Although your conscious mind has the ability to accept or reject information, your subconscious mind does not. Thus, it’s important to have the image look like you. This will help you get crystal clear about what you want for a body of your dreams.

Step two: Write down your goal and include a time frame. Be specific. The simple act of committing your goal to paper sends a signal to your subconscious mind that this goal is important; it isn’t merely a passing thought.

Step three: Imagine your beautiful, highly toned and ripped body. What does it feel like to have those six pack abs showing? How does it feel to have all of your waist fat gone? What kind of clothes would you wear? How does it feel to fit into the clothes you have dreamed about?

By mixing the images with emotion, you evoke a new, good feeling vibration. The more good feeling emotions you can create, the faster you will attract the things you most desire.

Step four: Review your goal daily. No matter where you get the image(s) it’s important that you look at the images and your written goal as …

The Movie "Pretty Woman" and the Law of Attraction

Pretty Woman is the movie that made the brilliant Julia Roberts, famous. It is an excellent movie to discuss the Law of Attraction. What one focuses on, EXPANDS and everything that comes to us, we attract through our EMOTIONS, or often called, our VIBRATION. Julia plays the role of Vivian, a woman who is prostituting in order to make enough money to pay her bills. She lives with Kit another prostitute. Right from the start of the movie, it is clear that Vivian so WANTS more in her life.

The concept of WANTING is integral to the teachings of the LAW OF ATTRACTION. Everything that we WANT (or ask for) is always given, ASK AND IT IS GIVEN. In order to receive that which we ask for, we must get into high positive emotion and trust and know that it will come forth.

In the beginning, Kit has just used their rent money to pay a pimp and Vivian is furious. When Vivian confronts Kit, Kit says, "Do not irritate me," Vivian responds by saying angrily, "irritate you, irritate you, I just saw a girl being taken out of a dumpster, do not you want to get out of Here! This sets the audience knowing that she believes there is much more for herself in life and that her present situation is temporary in her mind.

Edward Lewis (Richard Gere) is an unhappy very rich man, who is, as he states, "screwing" people for money. He is introduced by not having a good time at his own party. He decides to leave in his lawyer's car and go back to his hotel. As he is driving past the spot where Vivian and Kit are hustling that evening, he is having trouble driving the Lotus Supreme that he has borrowed. Vivian just happens to know a lot about cars and as she approaches him to solicit him as a customer, she offers to show Edward the way to his hotel for $ 20. One can see her fiesty nature in this exchange. She has a confidence that is strong and she speaks with clarity.

Edward invites her up to his penthouse suite. At first, she is only going to stay an hour, then the evening and then Edward invites her to spend the week with him for $ 3000. "I will pay you to be at my" beckon call "for the whole week, he declares. For both of them it is a business venture.

Their first evening together, Edward works all night. In the morning Vivian says, "You do not sleep, you do not do, do you do drugs, what do you do Edward?" I buy companies and sell them, Then, I break the companies up into pieces and sell them parts off. Parts of a company are worth more than the whole. "Vivian then comments that he actually does not sell anything or make anything. Evident before.

Vivian's entrance into the world of wealth and beautiful things that she has …

Agricultural Adjustment Act

The Agricultural Adjustment Act is a U.S. federal act that placed restrictions in farming by giving planters subsidies for them not to farm some portions of their lands. The subsidies were also given for them to get rid of any excesses in livestock being bred. The goal was actually to bring down surplus of produce or livestock in order to increase the value of these livestock and crops. In order to raise money for such subsidies, the government imposed a tax on farm produce processing firms. The law also paved the way for the establishment of the Agricultural Adjustment Administration which would take charge of subsidy allotment. The Agricultural Adjustment Act was actually considered a pioneering farm law in the United States.

To put the law into perspective on why this law came into being, the government wanted to do something to uplift the difficult condition of the farmers especially during the early 1930s. In order to increase the prices of their crops and thus their earnings, the Act helped to eliminate excess supply. Tenant farmers thus were contracted not to plant cotton for instance in the whole area they tilled but only on a portion of the lot. The farmers got subsidies by restricting their production. There were however disadvantages to this Act. It benefitted more the big time food processors and farmers but strongly put the small tenant farmers to a disadvantage as land owners just sought wage labourers instead of full-time farmers.

There was also an Amendment to the Agricultural Adjustment Act known as the Thomas Amendment since it was initiated by Sen. Elmer Thomas. This amendment combined new economics views with that of populist views. Through the Thomas Amendment, the president would be compelled to give powers to the Federal Reserve for the buyout of federal obligations worth US$4 billion every time a currency expansion is desired. If there is a disparity for free market operations, the head of state could also opt to allow the United States treasury to produce up to US$4 billion while reducing the gold component of the dollar by up to fifty percent. The treasury could also accept US$100 million worth of silver priced at least fifty cents/ once as payments for the borrowing of some European countries from the first World War. The Agricultural Adjustment Act Amendment or the Thomas Amendment was however seldom used so that the treasury also seldom got payments from such borrowings.

The Thomas Amendment also became the basis of Pres. Roosevelt’s ratification of the Pittmann London Silver Amendment which gave marching orders to the U.S. mints to purchase the whole bulk of silver produced for 64.5 cents. Another striking application of the Amendment happened in 1934 as the president pushed to decrease the gold component of a dollar to just 40.94{512b763ef340c1c7e529c41476c7e03bc66d8daea696e1162822661d30dde056}. Despite this policy, bulk prices continued to rise.

Perhaps, the greatest impact that the Amendment brought was the rise in government control when it comes to monetary policies. The Thomas Amendment actually aimed to …

Current Employment Outlook for Personal Injury Attorneys

One of the most lucrative fields for lawyers is the job of a personal injury attorney. They take care of physical and emotional factors when seeking compensation for injured victims. They are also known as trial lawyers and take up assignments when people who have suffered in a vehicle collision, assaults, work injuries or medical errors approach them for help. These types of settlements may be in thousands of dollars and the lawyers benefit because they get a percentage of the compensations as their fees.

Tort law or personal injury law helps people to claim compensations from the third party because they have suffered damages as a result of accidents or injuries. The third party could refer to an individual, medical institution, government agency or a large corporation. This also deals with assault chargers, negligence, battery and cases of trespassing. This type of law can be categorized as:

  • Negligent torts
  • Intention torts
  • Strict liability torts

Role and job description of the personal injury attorney:

The attorney has to conduct research before taking up the case. He will check all aspects to determine if the case they are representing for a particular client is advantageous to their law firm. He will begin the paperwork after interviewing the clients and researching and understanding the various strategies that will have to be adopted.

The personal injury attorney has to find concrete evidence based on facts that can be produced in courts. These include police records, medical records and so on. The lawyers work on preparing the case by obtaining testimonies and legal briefs. They have to advise their clients in large corporations and organizations about legal issues as these bodies are especially vulnerable when it comes to lawsuits.

Due to the increasing demand, many personal injury lawyers are now available and there is scope for others who wish to enter this field.

Assessing the employment outlook:

These personal injury attorneys may work with a firm or independently as they would if they take up other streams in law. They may initially work as an associate but once they gain experience they may rise to the position of a partner in the firm. Some lawyers prefer to work on their own and take up cases where they charge lower fees. Studies on the subject indicate that the employment outlook proves positive as a growth of 13{512b763ef340c1c7e529c41476c7e03bc66d8daea696e1162822661d30dde056} in this field is expected by the year 2018.

Depending on the size of the firm where they are employed, the personal injury lawyers will be paid an average salary. This may be in the range of $51,700 to nearly $90,000. The cities that offer high compensation packages are Los Angeles, Chicago and New York. California State has the best ranking followed closely by Florida and New York.

The employment outlook therefore is positive and the average salaries that are paid are good incentives for budding personal injury lawyers. These types of lawyers are also sought as the rate of accidents, work related accidents and bankruptcy cases are …

What Are the Strengths and Weaknesses of These Two Law of Attraction Teachers and Who is Better?

The Law of Attraction. The Secret. As you think, so it is done onto you. These three phrases have been spoken very often in the last few years. What is the reason for that? It is the explosion of interest in the Law of Attraction caused by the hit movie "The Secret." This explosion of interest has also led to a great increase in the number of teachers teaching the Law.

Anyone who has tried the Law of Attraction for long enough has understood that you need proper instruction if you were to succeed in manifesting the object of your desires. There is just too much at stake to stick to free information and thus deprive oneself of the secret strategies that the top teachers can reveal for you. But again, with the availability of so many teachers, which should you choose? How can you make sure that your time is not wasted with below par teachers?

The above two are valid concerns and they are the major reasons that many followers of the Law of Attraction kind of give up on the idea after playing with it only a short while. This article, however, will present you the top two teachers and then give you a recommendation as to what of the two you should choose based on your needs and expectations.

So enough waiting, the two top teachers are Bob Proctor and Robert Anthony. The reason that these two were not only their long years of experience with the Law of Attraction, although that is certainly helped. The profundity of their message, as well as their charismatic and appealing personalities, coupled with their clarity of expression and vision, clearly separate them from the other teachers and make them the best two.

First, let us start with Dr. Robert Anthony. Who is Dr. Robert Anthony, you might ask, and I would not blame you. He would have been much more famous now had he not turned down the offer of Rhonda Byrnes to take part in her movie "The Secret." Anyways, he did not take part, which kept him to the side of the mainstream Law of Attraction movement. This, however, also helped to strengthen his image as the most profound and kind of unique teacher. He is not just one of the teachers of "The Secret." Instead, he is the teacher who has his own secret – "The Secret of Deliberate Creation." Therefore, he is recommended for those who are looking for a little more philosophical and not so mainstream approach to the Law of Attraction teachings.

Bob Proctor, on the other hand, certainly benefited from his participation in "The Secret." Arguably, he was the main protagonist in the movie, and this claimed in an increase in his popularity, which makes me absolutely certain that you know who he is. So what is so special about Bob and why is he so popular? What is so attractive about him is the unique mix between profundity and simplicity. He …

Humility – One of the Most Powerful Allies of the Law of Attraction

When approaching any new learning endeavor in life there is a mindset that trumps all others. With the Law of Attraction the same applies and even more so than usual.

Here’s an interesting question!

Do you believe monks, presidents, CEOs and other elite people in high stations still value learning? An even better question is: Do you believe that they are humble in their approach to learning?

The simple and undoubted answer is a resounding YES.

Men such as the ones we see who have succeeded, achieved and made a name for themselves are the most ferocious learners. They learn, read, study and meditate on their fields of endeavors all of the time. You can call it their obsession. Don’t believe me? Just read Napoleon Hills work and closely monitor the men he observed – how they behaved and operated on a daily basis.

The ability to be a humble student is the key to approaching the Law of Attraction successfully.

Why?

The quality of humility is often viewed in this age of raw and hard hitting competition as a weakness. This could not be further from the truth.

Let’s use an example. The only way a parachute can operate and actually perform its function properly is when it is open. When a parachute is not fully open it can put the user’s life in danger.

The same goes for our minds. When our minds approach any subject in a full and honest hearted state of humility: this is when the mind is most open. The mind is ready to receive and soak up knowledge. This is the state when the mind dissects and processes information at an optimum level. In this state of total humility the mind becomes relaxed and open like the parachute working effortlessly as the winds of knowledge rush into it.

When this occurs several things begin to happen. With taking in of new information our current beliefs may be challenged and pushed into an uncomfortable place. In a spirit of humility your sub conscious mind does not view new material as attack on current beliefs, rather it sees the information as raw materials fit to build better and stronger beliefs.

It can be the hardest situation at times to realize that for the past say 20 years, our beliefs have been incorrect. This can hurt both our feelings and the ego. That is absolutely fine and in all honesty we have in some way all been in this situation.

When our humility toward learning is high and strong, this situation becomes effortless and rather pleasant. We instantly begin to move from an uncomfortable feeling to exciting betterment and a change for the future.

Hold on a second you might think this article was about the Law of Attraction and not a lesson from your mother. The truth is the quality of HUMILITY cannot be over emphasized enough. Do you believe men such as Donald Trump, Warren Buffet, Bill Gates and etc are still humble students? …
