An outbreak of a rare blood infection in a New York hospital traced back to an opioid-stealing nurse, reports Gizmodo. According to the technology and science website, six cancer patients developed a serious and rare blood infection from June to July 2018 at Roswell Park Comprehensive Cancer Center in Buffalo, New York. According to the website, none of the victims died as a result of being infected by Sphingomonas paucimobilis. The bacterial infection is typically found in soil and water, thus rarely harming people. When six people all came down with the infection – which… [read post]

The Cost of Hiring A Personal Injury Lawyer  It is true that many types of legal services can be quite expensive. Many lawyers charge hundreds of dollars per hour. Following an accident in which someone has been injures due to negligence, they may be concerned about the cost of hiring a personal injury lawyer. However, these types of cases do not require any upfront money or hourly fees. These cases are handled almost always on contingency fee. That means you only pay the lawyer if you receive money, and that is called a contingency fee. For example, if you hire a car accident law… [read post]

I get calls on a regular basis from families asking questions about their loved one’s “short way” release date. The family doesn’t really know what the guy is talking about, and so they ring me up. Here’s a breakdown of what the inmate means, and the legal realities all inmates face as they work to get out of prison as quickly as possible. “Short way” used to be slang for “mandatory supervision.” Prior to 1996, the Government Code authorized the Texas Board of Pardons and Parole to release certain categories of inmates automatically… [read post]

Late-night comedians on broadcast TV (i.e. not cable, where pretty much anything goes) have become savage and even profane in their criticism of President Trump. I don’t regularly watch late-night TV, so I don’t know if this is a sudden development or has been going on for some time. Either way, it is a remarkable, even shocking, change from the norms that governed TV ten much less twenty years ago. Back in the day, there was more than lip service to the idea that the President was entitled to a modicum of respect, or maybe much more than a modicum, just because he… [read post]

We often read information about auto product recalls in Escondido that could result in serious injuries in a car accident, or information about child car seat safety. Yet it is not especially common to hear about a car that has been recalled for a safety defect related to child car seats. According to a recent article in Consumer Reports, that is precisely what is happening with a current BMW recall. The report indicates that “BMW of North America is recalling 32,760 vehicles from its 2015 to 2019 model years because the lower rear-seat anchor bars at the seat crease used to… [read post]

ByRyan Dube Last Updated on December 9, 2019   *** Years ago, if you wanted to look like a tourist in any city, you’d walk around holding a map and looking confused. These days, you just have to walk around holding your smartphone and look confused. It can be difficult to use Google Maps navigation without looking like a clueless tourist. Thankfully, Google has introduced a feature called Google Maps Voice that actually speaks the directions to you while you’re walking. Combine it with AR Navigation in Google Maps and… [read post]
