  • In 2012, pro football Hall of Famer Deion Sanders and his wife, Pilar Sanders, made headlines after police responded to a domestic violence call at their home. Shortly thereafter, Deion took to Twitter to proclaim his dismay, saying, “Pray for me and my kids now! They just witnessed their mother and a friend jump me in my room.”

    As Deion continued tweeting, reports surfaced that the allegations that Pilar attacked Deion were a setup. This all too common ploy has enabled many abusive husbands or wives to restructure domestic violence laws into another weapon of abuse. The setup allows the abusers to demonstrate a pattern of violent conduct on a spouse’s part and to use this evidence in a divorce or child custody battle. Although the court ultimately decides the truth of any domestic violence allegation, the fact remains that such allegations have devastating consequences, including criminal records, litigation expenses and prolonged custody battles.

    Another tactic used in divorce proceedings is the stall and delay. Here’s how it works: Court hearings are continually rescheduled, frivolous motions are filed and requests for discovery are repeatedly made. These tactics drive up legal costs and protract the litigation process. The incentive underlying this tactic is to force the opposing party, by increasing expenses and time, into a settlement offer.

    Another tactic, frequently used by celebrities, is known as “conflicting out.” This is when one party contacts all the ...

  • One of the most difficult things about handling a criminal case is determining what's true and what isn't. Even when people aren't being deliberately deceitful, it's not unusual for one person's account of events to vary considerably from another's. In an effort to eliminate a lot of this confusion, many police departments are having officers wear cop-cams, which are body cameras that act a lot like dashboard cams. Although cop-cams aren't prevalent in Illinois yet, there's a very good chance that they could debut in Chicago sooner rather than later.

    In front of and behind the camera

    It's easy to see why police departments are eager to invest in cop-cams. They provide a record of what transpires between police officers and civilians. If a defendant tries to make allegations against an officer later, the cop-cam can be used to back up the officer's story. Of course, these body cameras aren't just designed to protect officers. They can be used to protect the general public as well. These cameras can capture cases of police misconduct, which makes it more difficult for the police to sweep such issues under the rug.

    Several things are conspiring to make it difficult for police departments around Illinois to adopt the technology. Most notably, Illinois has some of the strictest recording laws in the nation. Benedictine University campus police, who have been using cop-cams since 2008, get around two-party consent laws by disabling audio on their body cameras. Two-party consent ...

  • The Main Uses of Towel Radiators

    10_177_

    There are different reasons why people may decide that buying electric towel racks is a good idea for them. Basically, this is how they can get a number of benefits, as there is nothing better than using warn towels each time after a hit shower. It is interesting that there are other important uses that these devices actually have.

    If you are planning to invest your money in this kind of equipment, you need to learn more about their basic functions and features in advance. It is possible to achieve this goal either by reading this article or checking http://cheap-radiator.co.uk/.

    I. You can use heated rails not only to make the atmosphere in your bathroom warm and cozy, but it makes sense to install them as special dryers. This is where you are able to dry your towels and other clothes in a timely manner. They will become softer compared to the clothing dried on a clothesline.

    II. There are many people who decide to get towel radiators in order to save some space. The main reason is that they can hang on them multiple towels at the same time, and this feature helps to provide extra storage, especially when it comes to small bathrooms. If you have a tiny lavatory, you should think about installing the towel rails that you can find on http://cheap-radiator.co.uk/800mm-wide-towel-radiator-chrome.

    III. It is true that some homeowners can have huge problems because of mold. If they want to get rid of it, one of the most effective options that they have is to install towel rack...

  • With the upsurge of the wellness industry in the past thirty years, more and more people are living well-balanced and active lives. And as the essential medical knowledge and practices improve even more, we can look forward to more people living up to a hundred years or more, something which was apparently a common thing in ancient times. In certain parts of the world, such as Thailand, Spain, Japan, France and the US, where we can find the most number of centenarians, dietary and lifestyle habits are commonly investigated and emulated as effective means of achieving not just long-life but for maintaining a sense of well-being.

    If it was such a common thing for people to live up to a hundred or even much longer in ancient times, how come modern people no longer approach that level of physiological durability? We are more of an exception now rather than the rule in biological longevity. Sea turtles, swans and carps and some other animals have longer average life spans than us humans. And they do not even read bibles and blogs!

    But we should not despair as life is, as often said, not measured in the length of one’s life but in the quality of life that one has. What human can survive living in water as tortoises and carps do? Yet the quality of life, not just the length of it, can now be attained through observing certain basic health tips and lifestyle changes any person can do without having to spend so much. And one need not reside in Okinawa or in Nepal to achieve this. ...

    The Avanti Group LLC Recruiting & Leadership Tips from a Recruiter: Don't Make Me Read Your Resume

    I will read your résumé unless it's 10 pages, but (just as you didn't want to write your résumé) I really don't want to read your résumé. To put it another way, I don't want to read it because I must in order to make a yes/no decision.

    This post originally appeared Job Tips for Geeks.

    Ideally, I can decide to speak to you based on a few sentences in the body of an email/application, and then primarily read the résumé to prepare for our initial dialogue and use it as a framework during the call. Give me a few sentences to make me want to have that talk.

    I never ask for or expect a full cover letter with addresses and dates and all the formatting. Personally, I don't want to read that either, and I'd rather not task applicants with the hassle. All we're trying to do is start a conversation, and it shouldn't take much to get it started. Reading only a few sentences before making a decision will clearly make my job easier, but it will make the job seeker's life a bit better as well. There is much less pressure to have the perfect résumé if you can get past the first stage without that document being carefully judged. Invest five minutes in the application, and you can spend less time customizing résumés.

    Roughly 50% of the applications I receive are résumé only. In 2013, almost 90% of my client hires included additional content. The data set is not large, but...

  • Workers’ compensation is a no-fault program, which means that if you are injured or become sick and are unable to work because of an accident at the workplace, you are entitled to compensation for your inability to work. Surviving spouses and dependent relatives of workers killed as a result of workplace accidents are also entitled to receive benefits. Most New Jersey employers are required to carry insurance to cover workers’ compensation or to be certified as self-insured. However, in some circumstances, workers’ compensation insurance is unavailable or inadequate to fully compensate you for your losses.

    If your employer is not insured

    If your employer does not carry workers’ compensation insurance coverage, you can file a claim with the Uninsured Employer’s Fund (UEF) of the State of New Jersey Department of Labor and Workforce Development. The UEF provides temporary benefits to injured workers or their dependents. Payment by the UEF is not automatic, and a court hearing is required in which benefits are assessed. The UEF assigns its own attorney for the hearing and only pays out temporary benefits and medical expenses awarded by the judge. A claim to the UEF can take many months, even years, to resolve, as the UEF first tries to pursue the employer for payment. Criminal sanctions can be taken against employers who do not have workers’ compensation insurance.

    If you were injured by someone else

    Even though the incident occurred at work, if it can be shown t...

  • Where will our children's jobs come from? It's something to ponder after the implosion of one of the manufacturing sector's linchpins. The first, broad answer is the retreats of Ford, Holden and Toyota don't mean that Australia cannot create enough jobs.

    There were just over 9 million people employed in Australia in November 2000. Employment in the manufacturing sector fell by 140,000 or 13 per cent between then and November last year, but total employment rose by 29 per cent or 2.62 million, to more than 11.6 million.

    New South Wales lost 52,900 jobs or 18.5 per cent of its manufacturing workforce over the 13-year period. Victoria was hit even harder. It shed 95,100 jobs, more than 29 per cent of its manufacturing workforce. NSW nevertheless created 276,100 jobs overall, boosting its employment base by 12.2 per cent. Victoria did even better, boosting total job numbers by 336,600, or 20.3 per cent.

    They did it even though they were not sitting on mineral riches that underpinned a 196,500, 252 per cent rise in job numbers to 274,500 in the mining sector between 2000 and 2013 - and while their jobs growth slowed to a crawl between 2010 and 2013, the way they did it gives the next clue about where our kids will be working: it is the service sector that will be the growth engine. It's still a complicated picture. Smaller job markets are, for example, more vulnerable to shocks such as a large company's collapse. Recent developments also make some sectors that have been growing...

  • The Avanti Group LLC Recruiting & Leadership Resume fraud said on the rise

    Caveat emptor — let the buyer beware — and if it sounds too good to be true it probably is, are two sayings potential employers should bear in mind when vetting hires, researchers warn.

    The tightening job market has more people either outright lying on resumes or writing their resumes in ways that polish the apple to stellar levels, they say.

    “People create fraudulent resumes all the time,” said Randy Miller, a vice president with Career Adventures in Shreveport. He’s been doing human resources work since 1990 and has been in his capacity with Career Adventures 14 years. “It has been an issue, though we’ve probably seen more of it in the last five years.”

    He said his firm reviews resumes with clients and encourages people to be honest and complete and not embellish.

    “We tell them not to do that because once they get employed or even before they are employed, everyone does background checks,” Miller said, noting that he tells clients to look at all their job history “to make sure their dates line up, that they actually worked where they say they worked. Put your real experience on there. They’ll learn if you’re lying.”

  • Natural Weight Loss Plans

    Aid, Communication Design

    When looking for the best weight loss pills available in the market these days, you can seek advice from your doctor or drop by a drugstore and ask a pharmacologist. Whatever kind you choose, remember that the best diet tablet should be able to help you lose those unwanted pounds with very little or no adverse reactions.

    Groups

    The best diet tablet groups can be separated into the following categories: recommended or over-the-counter.

    1. Prescribed diet tablets are medically tried and examined to produce results that they claim to provide to customers. These are also approved by medical companies to ensure that the drug really works according statements. Their adverse reactions are known and analyzed. Furthermore, they are usually given to those who are suffering from severe overweight like being overweight.

    2. Over-the-counter diet tablets are those you can buy directly from the drugstore or your local drugstore. Some of them are general, which you should be careful in taking because some have extreme amounts of toxins that can be harmful to the body system. OTC diet tablets do not support their statements. It is strongly recommended to purchase OTC weight-loss medication that are well-known or have known success among those who have used it.

    Natural ingredients

    Perhaps one of the biggest misunderstandings in weight-loss is that organic and herbal components are entirely safe. Keep this in mind when buying the best diet tablet. Ephedra is an example of a well-known "na...
