Cervical Cancer
Cervical cancer misdiagnosis can be curtailed through regular pap smears.Precancerous lesions and early cancers are highly detectable through pap smears which involve a scraping of cells from the cervix which are then submitted for examination. Any lesions detected can be easily removed before they become cancerous. Some doctors recommend annual ...
Available Bank Deposits
Available bank deposits may not necessarily always be available.  Under a recent decision from the U. S. Court of Appeals for the Second Circuit involving a law firm and Citibank the Court concluded that even though a bank deposit had been listed as being available to the depositor that did ...

Truck Accident Investigation II
Truck accident investigation has been made somewhat easier with the recent implementation of the Compliance Safety Accountability Program by the Federal Motor Carrier Safety Administration of the federal government.  The data available from CSA has to be requested through FOIA.  This new system is designed to identify potentially high risk trucking ...
Event Data Recorders

Monster Trucks
