Construction Accidents in Grand Haven area can result in debilitating and serious injuries. Worker’s compensation may cover some of the damages incurred, but not all of the expenses. Federal and state laws protect workers in the construction industry because of wanting to provide a safe workplace.

If you are hurt on the job, you want to identify all parties involved in the accident. The responsible party or parties can be an equipment manufacturer, site architect, subcontractors and contractors. Example accidents may include falling equipment or objects, equipment malfunctions, crane accidents, structural collapses, toxic exposure and scaffolding accidents. People who plan to take their case to court should talk to experts in construction safety, Occupational Safety and Health Administration (OSHA) regulations and civil engineering. An expert can evaluate the case and determine the acts that caused the injury.

People who are hurt in Construction Accidents can recover damages for pain and suffering, lost wages, disability, loss of income and for future and past medical expenses. Family members may also be entitled to loss of consortium. Loss of consortium puts a value on the injured person being a provider and companion. Accident victims should act quickly before the statute of limitation runs out when bringing forth the claim. If you qualify for worker’s compensation, you are ineligible to sue for workplace injuries. However, some companies may hire undocumented laborers and subcontractors for different jobs. Independent contractors are eligible to file a claim for negligence because they are not being covered under worker’s compensation statutes.

Companies have to be prepared to handle the aftermath regardless of the accident occurring onsite or because of bad materials or equipment. If someone is seriously injured or dies while on site and is not covered under worker’s compensation insurance, a variety of people can be named as defendants in a negligence lawsuit. Negligence occurs when someone or a company fails to take reasonable care to prevent loss or injury. If you want to pursue compensation, you should schedule a consultation with an experienced attorney. When it comes to Construction Accidents in Grand Haven, the person who is liable depends on the cause and nature of the accident. Browse around this site.

Representative Tom Tancredo (R-CO) has clarified his earlier statement that “you could take out their holy sites,” in the event of a nuclear attack upon the U.S. by Islamic terrorists. Rep. Tancredo has refused to make any apologies, saying “When we bombed Hiroshima, when we bombed Dresden, we punished a lot of people who were not necessarily (guilty). Not every German was a member of the Nazi Party. You do things in war that are ugly.” However, Tancredo emphasized that he was speaking hypothetically and not necessarily suggesting policy.

The remarks, made in a July 15th radio interview, hosted by Pat Campbell of WFLA in Orlando, Florida, have drawn support from conservatives groups such as Northeast Intelligence Network and Free Republic, and have offended the American Muslim community.In the interview, Tancredo discussed his request for information from the Justice Department regarding the claim of evangelical Christian journalist Joseph Farah that al-Qaida has smuggled multiple nuclear weapons into the U.S.

Glutatione For Health

Posted by: Adminin Insurance

Glutathione is in every cell of your body and your body produces its own glutathione. It’s needed for optimal health. Yet, there is a glutathione crisis.

An analogy: Your body produces its own blood plasma. The only time you need to supplement blood plasma is if your are seriously injured and lose a lot of blood or have a physical ailment such as hemophilia.

However, when it comes to glutathione, after age 20 your body produces 10-to- 20% less each decade.

What diminishes glutathione in the body is:

1. Age

2. Pollution

3. Genetic abnormalities

4. Stress

5. Infections

6. Injuries

7. Radiation

8. Poor diet

9. Drugs (alcohol, tobacco, legal and illegal drugs)|

10. Exercise to excess

11. Poor sleeping habits

12. Lack of hydration

13. Pesticides and certain food additives

Why does your body need glutathione?

Answer: Consider the following:

1. Glutathione is the major protector of DNA in every cell of your body.

2. Glutathione is the major protector of the immune system.

3. Glutathione detoxifies all toxins and heavy metals.

4. Vitamin A, C, E and alpha lipoic acid can not pass into the cell membrane and be fully metabolized without sufficient amounts of glutathione present in the cell.

5. Glutathione keeps your cells from prematurely dying so you may live longer.

6. Glutathione makes it possible for hemoglobin to carry oxygen.

7. Glutathione is the most powerful antioxidant known.

In other words, you can do all kinds of things to strengthen your immune function but without sufficient glutathione, your efforts are for naught.

Skin Problems? Even though glutathione is found in every cell in your body, the largest concentration of glutathione in the body is found in the skin?

How do you increase the amount of glutathione in your body?

Answers:

1. Glutathione can be injected into the bloodstream but it can’t pass the cellular membrane to get into the cells. So forget that and its very expensive.

2. If glutathione is taken internally by mouth, it is destroyed in the stomach. So forget that too.

3. Skin patches, but it only affects the level of glutathione in your blood stream–not intracellular. So you only get a small percentage of all the benefits possible.

3. A few years ago, Dr. Keller, now deceased from a rare protein deficiency disease, discovered a nutritional supplement that naturally stimulates the creation of glutathione in the body to increase the cellular concentration of glutathione. It is called Max GXL and is taken minimally twice per day (a packet of 3 capsules in the morning and a packet of 3 capsules at night).

Glutathione is also the key to slowing down or stopping the premature destruction of cells themselves. This means you live longer as it slows aging.

Why consider adding yet another supplement to your daily regime?

Because Glutathione supports the structure, function and well being of every cell in your body-in fact many supplements are useless without sufficient glutathione.

Personally, I would go to bed feeling fine and noticed pains in my knee as I slept. I’d awaken in the morning with pain in the knee. After about three days it became painfully swollen all day and night. I felt like I was 95 years old. Getting in and out of my car was difficult. Sitting or getting up from the toilet-forget it. I was realizing that in a few years I’d be looking at using a motorized chair-and I’m not ready for that.

The condition was cyclical. It would last about three weeks, clear up for two weeks and then return. I had great empathy for anyone I saw limping or with a cane.

My doctor had no idea what was causing the problem and was about to send me off to a specialist-but she didn’t know which specialty would be best. It was so bad that it severely affected my mental attitude. It was like I had worked hard all my life to find that when I was in a position to begin enjoying it, I’d be severely limited.

After taking Max for a couple weeks, my swelling disappeared and then returned a couple weeks later. And then it disappeared and hasn’t returned after months. Now I understand that I can share this experience because I never had a medical diagnosis.

The person who introduced the product to me found that her cholesterol normalized after years of having issues with it.

My fianc’s vision was becoming blurry. She was waiting for her health insurance to start before going to a doctor. After just two weeks on MaxGXL she no longer has the issue.

After being on Max of a month one lady reported that for the first time in years her blood tests showed a normal white blood cell count.

Remember, MaxGXL simply gives you back the glutathione that your body has been not producing.

What will that mean if each cell is no longer inflamed?

What will it mean if toxins are eliminated from every cell in your body?

What will it mean if your immune system is stronger?

What will it mean if your hemoglobin carries more oxygen?

What will it mean if every cell can make the most of the vitamin A, C, E, and alpha lipoic acid available to it?

Now results this quickly is important. For example I use an equally incredible product-Xooma (Sango Coral Calcium) which also detoxifies the body from heavy metals and hydrates the body–but even though there are incredible internal changes in body chemistry, they are not often felt. And if people don’t feel the benefit, they stop taking the supplement.

It’s recommended that you take two packets of three capsules daily-one packet in the morning and one later in the afternoon. Drink lots of water-I mean lots of water (at least a full glass with every packet and as close to a gallon of water a day if you can). If the desired changes in your body don’t happen after two weeks it’s suggested that you increase to three and then four packets per day-unless you’re going through detox as is explained below.

Personally I no longer need to take excessive Vitamin C, glucosamine, and expensive enzymes to try to control the swelling that was in my knee. That’s a savings of over $150.oo per month. I was free of the normal detox reactions because I take Sango Coral Calcium on a daily basis which also detoxifies toxins and heavy metal from my body.

I now no longer need to take Super Beta Prostrate to reduce swelling in my prostrate since glutahione is an anti inflammatory. That’s a savings of an additional $35/month. And I don’t even have to be concerned about whether I should be also taking acai berry, or any kind of antioxidant mixture of berries. Note that acai berry and similar products only neutralize free radical outside the cell to keep them from getting in the cell whereas glutathione neutralized free radical inside the cell where they do the most damage.

China overtakes Germany as world’s biggest exporter

Sunday, January 10, 2010

Chinese officials have said that their country’s exports surged last December to edge out Germany as the world’s biggest exporter.

The official Xinhua news agency reported today that figures from the General Administration for Customs showed that exports jumped 17.7% in December from a year earlier. Over the whole of 2009 total Chinese exports reached US$1.2 trillion, above Germany’s forecast $1.17 trillion.

Huang Guohua, a statistics official with the customs administration, said the December exports rebound was an important turning point for China’s export sector. He commented that the jump was an indication that exporters have emerged from their downslide.

“We can say that China’s export enterprises have completely emerged from their all-time low in exports,” he said.

However, although China overtook Germany in exports, China’s total foreign trade — both exports and imports — fell 13.9% last year.

Many thousands of anime and manga fans descended on the Toronto Congress Centre for Anime North, a fan-run convention launched in 1997. Spread between four venues over three days, May 24 to 26, the event featured J-pop maid idols, voice actors, writers, and more. Wikinews attended.

Despite the ample indoor spaces, the parking lot of the Centre is also a hub of activity, with cosplayers posing for photos. Attendees were sent running for cover on Saturday, as heavy rains and a severe thunderstorm warning put a damper on festivities.

The event is organized by a massive team of volunteers, and known for its specialized programming for fans, by fans. On the night of May 25, for example, attendees could catch “Pokemon Biology”, “Kimono Obi Tying”, and “Underappreciated Sports Anime/Manga.”

US voice actor Alexis Tipton marveled at the growth of the anime industry in the last decade. “Back when I was going as a fan, there wasn’t as much anime, so it was easier to know about everything,” Tipton observed during a question and answer session. “I’m so overwhelmed by how much there is.”

Tipton held a panel on her career, dubbing anime for US distribution company Funimation Entertainment. While many anime voice actors weren’t fans going into the industry, Tipton recalled going to anime conventions with her friends during middle school and high school. Once she was an invited guest, Tipton recalls realizing “oh, I’m not here to just have fun, I’m here to work; I have a set schedule and I can’t just, like, you know, go do what I want.”

Early in her career, Tipton was cast as a voice for My Bride is a Mermaid, a role that required singing. Then just 19 years old, she looked at the role as a “chance to face my demons,” having questioned her abilities for years. “I was in an extremely competitive [singing musical theatre] program in high school. I had started working at Funimation when I was 19, so I was just barely in college. And so those scars were still like, really fresh. I had a lot of competition and people would find what your perceived weakness was, or what your actual weakness was in the program, and they would take advantage of it. And so I had people trying to make me feel like I couldn’t sing my way out of a paper bag, and then I would get so nervous when I would sing that I couldn’t support my notes, and so it would just prove them right.”

Tipton was devastated when she got a sinus infection, the week of the audition. “This director doesn’t know me, I haven’t worked with him, he’s going to think that this is what I sound like,” she recalls thinking. “I don’t know if I had a shot to begin with, but now I really don’t have a shot.” She was thrilled when she was cast.

Another voice actor, Lauren Landa, would list Sailor Neptune and Sailor Uranus as dream roles, when asked at conventions. She was given a chance to audition for the characters years later, when Vizmedia dubbed the first two seasons of Sailor Moon. When she was cast, “I swear to you, I was speechless,” she told an audience at her Q&A session.

Cosplay model and professional singer Jillea attended the Saturday of the convention dressed as Pokemon species Charizard. Wikinews spoke with her by email, after the event:

((WN)) What got you into cosplay modelling?

Jillea: My love for cosplay started with the community, what started as a fun hobby I would do periodically quickly became a huge part of my life, and the reason for that being how amazing the cosplay community embraced me and my work. I’ve always been a creative person, so getting to make my costumes and have people say ‘oh my gosh, I love that character!!’ got me hooked right away. They’re just my people, what can I say, they really make me feel welcomed and I love them for it.

((WN)) How did you choose Charizard?

J: I’m a 90’s baby so you could say I’m a bit of a Pokémon OG! I had a Game Boy as a kid and my very first purchase was Pokémon Red, solely based on how cool Charizard looked on the cover. Charizard has always been my favourite Pokémon and I can’t resist a challenging cosplay… and the nostalgia!

((WN)) What was your favourite part of Anime North?

J: This was my very first time attending Anime North and I was blown away! The booths were incredible and unique, every time I turned around I was seeing something different I’ve never seen at a convention before. Everything was easy to access and I even made use of the Cosplay Recharge station that literally saved the day with their hot glue! Extremely friendly environment it will not be my last time back for sure.

A Look At A Skin Doctor

Posted by: Adminin School

A skin doctor is another name for a dermatologist. These healthcare specialists have education and expertise in caring for skin that is normal and healthy as well as in caring for skin that has problems. Skin care doctors prevent and treat numerous skin conditions such as psoriasis, warts, rosacea and forms of skin cancer. Dermatologists do not just deal with skin disorders, but also with disorders that affect the nails and the hair. Those who are suffering from hair loss, nail fungus or scars can be referred to a skin doctor to be diagnosed and treated for the problem at hand. If you need to locate a dermatologist for a skin, hair or nail problem that you have developed, then your general practitioner can refer you to a professional or can recommend someone to you. Another place to look would be the American Academy of Dermatology because they keep lists of doctors that are board certified. Still another resource is to place a call to a local medical school that is within a university setting and ask for names and recommendations of dermatologists.When you do come across a dermatologist or two who seems to fit your criteria, there are certain questions that you need to ask of him or her. These questions include: -What types of health insurance do you accept?-Can you provide patient references? -If I have a problem, can I get an appointment on short notice? -Does your office offer evening hours or weekend hours?-Do you specialize in a particular area of dermatology? -How many patients have you performed this specific procedure on? To become a skin doctor, a physician must spend approximately three years following graduation from medical school in getting further education in disorders that affect the skin, nails and hair. They also are trained to perform surgical procedures on the skin and other related procedures. You have probably been told in the past that you should only go to board certified doctors. While board certification does matter, it is by no means a guarantee that the doctor in question will be a good skin doctor. What it does demonstrate is that the medical practitioner completed the training that was required and has acquired the knowledge that was necessary to pass the required examination. For your own peace of mind you can easily verify that a dermatologist has received board certification by visiting the American Board of Dermatology website.When you are looking for a dermatologist to tend to the skin, hair or nail condition that you have developed, you need to research the speciality of every doctor who looks of interest to you. The area of expertise is important to finding the physician who can provide you with the right type of treatment. The vast majority of dermatologists are able to diagnose and treat most skin problems but some choose to obtain additional certifications for specific areas of the medical discipline. Examples of the specialist certifications that a skin care physician can obtain include clinical and laboratory dermatological immunology, pediatric dermatology, and dermatopathology.

At 12:41 p.m. local time (UTC-5), a man opened fire at Dawson College, in Westmount, Quebec, Canada; the college is located near the heart of downtown Montreal. Police report at least 20 people being injured. The gunman was reportedly killed at the scene by police. Students told reporters that they heard several shots in the building at about 12:45 local time. One student told a local radio station that she saw two people who had been shot, including one who was hit at the neck. The student said a friend told her four people had been shot.

Hundreds of students fled the building, and the area has been cordoned off. Nearby Plaza Alexis Nihon and Westmount Square were evacuated and the Green line of the Montreal Metro was shut down between Lionel-Groulx and Peel. Police officers wearing bullet-proof vests are keeping people away from the college. “They’re telling me, ‘Go the other way, lady, you’re in the line of fire,'” said CBC News reporter Nancy Wood, who reported from the scene.

Local media have reported police hotlines have been established for loved ones to gain more information: +1-(514)-280-2880, +1-(514)-280-2805, and +1-(514)-280-2806. The Montreal General Hospital has also set up a hotline at +1-(514)-843-2839.

Police have reported that the situation has been neutralized as of 20:06, September 13, 2006 (UTC). Police have been told to stand down and are no longer looking for new victims or shooters.

Dawson College is a CEGEP that hosts about 10,000 students.

Zahi Hawass, Egypt’s pre-eminent archaeologist, and Secretary General of the The Supreme Council of Antiquities, has announced that a rare statue constructed of white marble whose features resemble Alexander the Great has been discovered in Egypt. Hawass also stated that there are satellite photographs identifying many archeological sites which may also reveal buried monuments.

Calliope Papacosta was leading the Greek archaeological excavation in Alexandria when the white marble statue was found.

“A ribbon around the head of the statue proves that it belongs to an important person for such ribbon was used only be[sic] rulers,” said Hawass, “The 80 cm long, 23 cm wide statue has been discovered eight meters deep under the earth surface.”

Farouk Hosni, Egypt’s Culture Minister, is supporting archaeological dig sites and has set into place laws restricting illegal digging in confirmed archaeological sites which may contain historical monuments. The monument photography project, National Authority for Remote Sensing, Space Sciences (NARRS) and Mubarak City for Scientific Research (MuCSAT) combined Satellites technology, aerial photography and ground laser to locate 132 sites which have not yet been excavated.

One of these sites is north of Lake Qarun in the Faiyum area, and another at Habu city. Archaeologists are presently being sent out by the Egyptian Ministry of Tourism to areas before construction and building excavations to preserve invaluable archaeological treasures. At the Faiyum site near Cairo artifacts dating to diverse time periods have been found amongst these, an awl for stitching leather, fishing tackle, weapons, jewellery, pottery, coins, sawfish, whale fossils, and a 3150 BC block portraying one of the two leaders named King Scorpion.

Meanwhile, in other archaeological news, Iran’s three salt mummies found in the Chehrabad Salt Mine in 1993 will be moved to a technologically advanced vacuum chamber display case in Zanjan for better preservation. These mummies or Salt Men have been dated as being from the Parthian 237 BCE – 224 CE and Sassanid era, 224 – 651 CE.
