Chase, GMAC Suspend Foreclosures, Other Lenders May Follow

2010-10-20

These robo-signers would regularly sign massive numbers of affidavits, assignments of mortgages, and other documents ...

The Backdrop to a Great Debate Concerning the Trucking Industry

2010-10-20
The Federal Motor Carrier Safety Administration ("FMCSA") is very busy these days, as it considers implementing changes to the hours-of-safety ("HOS") rules governing the driving times and rest periods of drivers of commercial motor vehicles. This consideration has been long in coming. The present HOS rules, instituted during the Bush administration, made material changes to laws that had existed essentially untouched for decades. The rules increased the hours truckers may drive consecutively (from 10 to 11) and decreased from 50 to 34 hours the time required for a driver ...

Options to Adversarial Divorce: New Focus on an Often Flawed Process

2010-10-20

Although it certainly works for some, for many others - couples with widely varying family, financial and other relevant circumstances - the attendant costs, both immediate and long-term, are being increasingly questioned. It is no small secret in American life that a litigated divorce outcome typically ...

Saga to Establish Hours-of-Service Trucking Regulations Continues

2010-10-20
The Federal Motor Carrier Safety Administration (FMCSA) has been working on revising trucking hours-of-service (HOS) rules for over ten years.

Among other specifications, the current FMCSA regulations provide that CMV drivers carrying property may drive a maximum of 11 hours after 10 consecutive ...

Florida Police Challenged by High Rates of Illegal Prescription Drugs

2010-10-20
A sharp uptick in the use of illegally obtained prescription drugs by residents of several southern states is being blamed on so-called "pill mills" springing up throughout Florida. Perhaps most troubling is that many of those taking advantage of readily available prescription drugs -- whether obtained from a pill mill (most often a "pain relief clinic" set up under the auspices of a legitimate treatment center but serving the sole purpose of writing prescriptions for powerful painkillers like OxyContin or Vicodin and relaxants like Xanax or Valium), bought one pill at ...

High Turnover of Nurses' Aids Affects Nursing Home Residents

2010-10-20
The medical world has long since recognized the high turnover rate of certified nursing assistants, or nurses' aids, as having a negative impact on long-term care.

The high stress levels causing the high turnover rate are caused by inadequate training, little support, poor benefits and minimal respect from management and superiors. Low wages are also a factor, with an average hourly pay of $10.48. ...

2010-10-20

What We Do Does Not Matter. Anymore.

2010-10-20
In 2009, approximately 3.9 million fetuses were assessed with electronic fetal monitoring (EFM). EFM is, by far, the most common obstetric procedure in the United States.
