Denver, CO (PRWEB) October 29, 2007
As the Kids and Cars Safety Act goes before Congress, LegalView offers soon to be a soon to be re-tooled auto accident portal with a wealth of automotive injury guidance.
An Arizona toddler was struck and killed by his father’s Ford Expedition on Sept. 30th in Queen Creek Arizona. The father believed the child was inside the house at the time. This tragedy points out the importance of a bill currently under debate in the U.S. congress that is designed to address important child automotive safety issues..
The Cameron Gulbransen Kids and Cars Safety Act was introduced in the House and Senate in February 2007. The bill is named after a New York boy who was run over in 2002, and the bill’s authors cite a 2002 Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC) study (July 2000-June 2001) that reports that over 9,160 children were treated in hospital emergency rooms due to non-traffic incidents. According to the bill’s sponsors and authors, this alarming trend indicates the necessity of legislation more focused on protecting basic child safety around automobiles.
The bill, co-sponsored by Sen. John McCain (R-Ariz.), would direct the Secretary of Transportation to establish federal standards on automobile safety devices for children. The debate generated by this bill points out the possible dangers of automobiles for children, and any Americans who may have been negatively affected by a tragic child auto accident may need the advice of an auto accident lawyer to protect themselves and provide recourse against unsafe automotive products. It is always important to have all the current information concerning important child safety and automotive safety issues. It is for this reason that LegalView.com would like to remind readers that it maintains a comprehensive online collection of legal information at its automobile accident information portal, which is offered free to the public. Additionally, to better serve the needs of the American public, LegalView is proud to announce that it will soon be re-launching it auto accident portal with even more information relating to automotive safety, including child safety.
The automobile accident portal site revamp will include additions to the collection of original articles, and new posts to the auto accident blog which will focus on child safety. This new content will sit alongside current collections of information on jury verdicts and settlements related to auto accidents, a glossary of auto accident terms, a video library and an attorney referral service to help families and victims get counsel from an experienced auto accident law firm.
LegalView.com’s free information is not limited to car safety, however. Visitors can browse many other portals addressing issues that are important to contemporary America, including resources to help individuals get in contact with a brain injury lawyer, a mesothelioma law firm, or a construction accident attorney. All of these portals, and LegalView.com’s other portals, contain legal resources, basic information, links to useful books and web sites, guides to medical and industry jargon, and more. And those who are interested in speaking to a lawyer can also take advantage of LegalView.com’s free online attorney referral service, which matches potential clients with experienced attorneys in their areas of interest.

Boulder, Colo. (PRWEB) November 22, 2007
Crusthaven.com, an internet landmark, is now for sale. The owners have decided to put the site on the market with a million dollar price tag. Money from the sale of the website will be used to purchase 800 acres of land and build a community center for the 200+ homeless members of the online community.
“Preachur,” the original builder and primary owner of Crusthaven said: “I am sick of watching my friends and family die on the streets. I am sick of seeing the Earth suffer because people aren’t living green. Selling Crusthaven will allow us to establish a community on damaged land that is Earth-friendly. It will give the crusty tribe a place to live. We will never have to be homeless again, and we will turn desolation into paradise. Whoever decides to buy Crusthaven will be a real hero.”
Established in 1996 at a public library, Crust Haven was originally built on Angelfire and Firefly as a free message board and community group site for homeless gutter punks a.k.a. “crusties.” By 1999 the site had developed into a full-fledged community with interactive stories, free email hosting and even featured a web-based instant messenger service called “CrUsThAvEn Communicator.” At the time it was the only instant messenger that could effectively be used from public libraries since it required no downloads or plug-ins to function. In 2001 the domains crusthaven.com and crusthaven.org were purchased as the primary domains. Crusthaven.org was lost in 2002 due to lack of funds, but has since been re-purchased.
Crusthaven is a high-traffic site. In 2003 it was featured in an article in Rolling Stone Magazine. After that the site quickly gained in popularity. Extensive promotions and submissions by it’s administrators have given it great search engine rankings and hundreds of in-links.
After a recent re-build and remodeling the site has many features comparable to MySpace and Facebook. People have a profile with a friend list, personal photo albums, they can create their own groups that others can join, etc.
However, the website isn’t just an effective community site. When asked what else it can do Preachur was happy to elaborate:
“Crusthaven can do almost anything. There are 70 modules that can be activated through the administration area and more can be installed any time. It is capable of creating and maintaining many directories and databases… The site can be a store, a company site, a customer service center. It’s purpose can be changed with a few mouse clicks. It has live help capabilities with real-time visitor tracking. It has 2 banner systems and partner and client software. It has advanced survey and polling software for marketing research and even has development software installed to create unlimited business applications. It really is a powerful tool. Not only that but the site is so interactive that visitors always come back. Classifieds, forums, news, chats, stores, directories, addresses, links, statistics, advertising, marketing, selling, buying, tracking, linking…. You name it it can probably do it. It has a variety of editors to choose from including WYSIWYG, so even a child could run it. It has a theme system that is easy to customize. Users can choose their own theme if you choose, or you can turn that feature off and use any one theme you want and change it any time yourself with 2 clicks in administration section. It even has built-in security software to protect against a wide variety of hack attacks. It’s a great site. I will be happy to help the new owners re-launch it for whatever purpose they choose.”
So that’s the story. A great site for sale for a great cause. 209 homeless members are waiting for homes. The sale of this well-established website will accomplish that goal. You are invited to stop by today and show your support: http://crusthaven.org

Detroit, MI (PRWEB) June 30, 2011
Lutheran World Relief(LWR), The Lutheran ChurchMissouri Synod (LCMS) and the United Nations (UN) Foundation announced on Monday an unprecedented partnership to mobilize Lutherans in the United States in the fight against malaria in Africa.
The campaign, called the Lutheran Malaria Initiative (LMI), aims to raise $ 45 million to contribute toward the global goal of eliminating malaria deaths in Africa by 2015. Malaria, a preventable and treatable disease, continues to devastate communities and perpetuate a cycle of poverty. According to the World Health Organization, nearly 1 million people die of malaria each year and every 45 seconds a child dies in Africa. In many communities where LWR and the LCMS work, extreme poverty creates conditions that allow malaria to take hold and spread with deadly consequence.
At a news conference held Monday at Detroits Historic Trinity Lutheran Church, leaders of the LMI partnership joined representatives from the Global Fund to Fight AIDS, Tuberculosis and Malaria (Global Fund), to announce the campaign and discuss the crucial role of churches and faith-based institutions in the effort to end malaria deaths.
Rev. John Nunes, president and CEO of Lutheran World Relief, opened the news conference. I am excited to be here today with the LMI partners, Nunes said. This is a day that has been years in the making, and for which millions around the world have been waiting.
Dr. Matthew C. Harrison, president of The Lutheran ChurchMissouri Synod, spoke next. The Lutheran footprint for providing care and mercy to those suffering is enormous, Harrison said. For decades, we have been working with partners and fellow Lutherans at the end of the dirt road. Today, we are delighted to come alongside the LMI partners to take a huge bite out of this horrid disease.
Gloria Edwards, co-chair of the LMI National Campaign Cabinet, offered insights on her inspiration for becoming involved in the initiative. My husband and I believe in saying yes to the open doors God places before us, she said. We went to East Africa not long ago and saw a young woman in a malaria-induced coma. We also saw other young children who demonstrated how to use a bed net, and how to let their parents know when they are not feeling well so that they can be taken to the doctor. We are excited to be a part of helping more children and families know how to prevent malaria as well as what to do when they get sick with the disease.
In closing the news conference, Nicolas Demey, corporate partnerships officer with the Global Fund to Fight AIDS, Tuberculosis and Malaria, said, It is an honor to work with LMI to help end malaria deaths in Africa. We have the tools and know what we need to do to end these needless deaths. We can do it.
Following Mondays news conference, Kathy Calvin, CEO of the UN Foundation, added: Between 40 percent and 60 percent of health care in developing countries is provided by faith-based organizations, like our Lutheran partners, Calvin said. It is inspiring to see how the Lutheran community in the U.S. can help the UN reach families in rural villages on the other side of the world.

Tips On When To Hire A Personal Injury Lawyer
According to Patrick E. Carr, an attorney for nearly 40 years with Carr & Carr Attorneys At Law, here are several tips on events that can merit working with a personal injury attorney:
— A child has been abused in a day care setting. This can be a church-sponsored mothers’ day out group, an after-class program at an elementary or middle school, a scouting or community service-oriented group.
— An older adult has been injured in an assisted living facility or nursing home. Unfortunately, nursing home neglect and abuse happen to elderly people and those with diminished mental capabilities. If a loved one is in a nursing home or other care center, the facility has a contractual obligation to provide adequate care. People who are unable to protect themselves rely on friends and family to monitor their care.
— A medical procedure has been botched. If a major mistake is made, such as if the surgeon left instruments inside someone’s stomach or removed the wrong organ, the patient definitely should talk with a lawyer. It sounds like a bad movie, but it happens.
— A defective medical device causes unintended negative consequences. Heart pacemakers and defibrillators, coronary stents, hip and knee joint replacement devices, and other medical devices can improve the quality of life if the device is manufactured and implanted properly. If it is not manufactured or implanted correctly, patients may have pain and suffering that could be worse than the original problem was.
— Someone is involved in a complex accident. A wreck involving an airplane, helicopter, bus, semi-truck, multiple vehicles, dump truck or other commercial vehicle can be more extensive due simply to the size of the machines involved. Commercial vehicles are required to have insurance in the event their drivers cause a wreck.
— A person is injured at a public place such as a shopping mall. For example, a broken escalator can cause serious foot damage. Additionally, hazards (like a busted railing from an upper level) must be marked to ensure shoppers and employees are safe. If they are not marked and someone is injured, he or she should consider taking legal action to protect themselves.

Bullying is a constant issue for schools throughout the country and the statistics are worrying.

Services offered by private detectives can often provide the much needed conclusive proof against the bully to ensure they are caught out and stopped.

A spokesperson from Private Detective Chelmsford said:
We see many unhappy children bullied either physically at school or emotionally on Facebook and other social network sites.

By hiring a private investigator they can gain conclusive proof, which can aid the case and protect their child against any more harm.
Private Detective Chelmsford along with their sister company Private Detective Southend On Sea are a team of highly trained professional and discreet private investigators and detectives with over 35 years experience in the industry. Their understanding and approachable team of male and female detectives are available 24/7 to conduct matrimonial, corporate and private investigations.

Taiwan-based company Quanta, a major manufacturer of handsets for a number of leading brands, has completed integration of E-OTD (Enhanced Observed Time Difference) software in a GSM handset, following a tie-up with Cambridge Positioning Systems and TTPCom.
This is a major step forward in the development of E-OTD technology in the US, where it is pivotal in the rollout of location-enabled cellular phones to meet the US Federal Communications Commission (FCC) E-911 mandate. The move will enable GSM operators to deploy high accuracy location in line with FCC requirements.
TTPCom were responsible for integrating CPS’s E-OTD algorithm software into its existing GSM/GPRS protocol stack software, which has been licensed by Quanta. This software upgrade has made it possible for Quanta to add E-OTD functionality easily to their handsets, and thereby achieve a fast time to market with these value added products.
“High accuracy location-based technology is the most important enabler for services personalised to the individual. This is a first step for the GSM world to make location services to save lives before addressing a wider range of services in the very near future,” Georges Boulloy, Senior Vice President of Wireless Business Unit 1 at Quanta said.
Gordon Aspin, Operations Director at TTPCom said, “By closely supporting the integration and testing of location based functionality in Quanta’s handset, we are pleased to have enabled them to realise one of the world’s first E-OTD handsets.”
