Tales of the Kitchen Sponge

When I first moved in with my now husband, he had a dirty little habit that we had to compromise on.  I was raised on a dishcloth that was used for one day, then tossed in the laundry.  He was raised with a sponge. We were a house divided.  He was a sponge guy, I was a dishcloth girl.  He had his reasons.  I had mine.  And to be honest, the thought of a sponge sitting around on the sink creeped me out. Whether it was because I always had a clean washing tool, or the fact that I am a scientist, I could only think about swirling bacteria around on my plate, drying it off, and eating on it again.

Wrong-Way Crash Leaves Many Mysteries Behind

Wrong-way drivers who cause collisions account for roughly 1% of all auto collisions nationwide. However, a wrong-way collision is more likely to be fatal due to speeds, since many of these conditions take place on highways. They also tend to occur in a head-on fashion, and these can be the deadliest of car accidents. A great many wrong-way collisions are caused by intoxication and the majority of wrong way collisions occur at night. However, the explanations behind a wrong-way driver can leave more questions than answers, as the Tampa Bay Times reports. On Thanksgiving night in 2018, Paul O’Neal first thought the headlights he saw in the distance on a darkened stretch if I-75 in Florida were from a tow truck picking up a car. However, when he notices tail lights ahead of him swerving, he knew he was dealing with a wrong-way driver. A few moments later, O’Neal watched as the wrong-way driver sped head-on into a sedan heading south. The Florida Highway Patrol…..

Essure Birth Control Device: A History of Pain, Injuries, Lawsuits

Bayer’s Essure birth control device is coming off the market, thanks to a public campaign aimed at raising awareness about its dangers. After years of silence, in which women were told that their pain wasn’t real, and years of incident reports that went unheeded, the U.S. Food and Drug Administration (FDA) finally agreed that Bayer needed to do more to warn patients about the risks of the birth control device. Now that women are making informed decisions, use of the birth control device has dropped off so precipitously that Bayer is ending its production. Let’s look at what Essure is and why it’s so dangerous. The Essure Birth Control Implant Continue reading →.. To continue reading this legal news please click Read full information...
