Why Don't ALL 18-Wheeler Trucks Have Dash Cameras?

Submitted by jrlaw on Nov 14th, 2013

With the amount of damage an 18-wheeler can impose in an accident, why are trucking companies still hesitant to spend $100 on a dash camera?

Dash CameraAlthough it seems as if 18-wheelers serve no other purpose than adding to your aggravation level, 18-wheelers are actually a very important role in today's society. Commercial trucks (e.g. 18-wheelers, big rigs, tankers, semi trailers, tractor trailers, etc) carry the world's goods from place to place, crossing from state to state and often even crossing continents. Doesn't sound like much but if 18-wheelers stopped doing their job it would affect many companies, industries, and even interfere with you buying the things you need and enjoy.

Defective Hanging Light Fixtures (Ceiling Boxes)

Submitted by jrlaw on Nov 6th, 2013

Ceiling Box RECALLToday's recall of ~22,400 Ceiling Boxes by Cooper Crouse-Hinds is interesting. The CPSC says that the ceiling boxes can crack, which can cause the light fixture to fall from the ceiling, posing an impact hazard to consumers. While no injuries have yet been reported as a result of this product defect, the potential for injury or death is still there for those who do not seek a replacement or refund. Many people using this product in their homes will probably never even know it was recalled.

Discovering Nursing Home Abuse

Submitted by jrlaw on Jul 11th, 2013

Abusing somebody in a nursing home facility is an egregious enough offense that most people really don't want to accuse anyone of having done it. Unfortunately, this may lead people to doubt very good instincts about whether or not someone they loved is being abused in such a facility. Here are some of the things that may lead you to take action if you believe that someone you love who is in a nursing home is being abused. Remember, you can also report nursing home abuse if you believe it is happening to somebody else at the nursing home facility with whom you have no real emotional involvement. You very well may be doing them a favor.

Overmedication

Overmedication is one of the most common forms of nursing home abuse. It is also sometimes the result of simple negligence. If you go to visit a loved one and they don't suffer from any sort of a disorder that would affect them cognitively, watch out for signs that they may be being overmedicated. They may, for example, seem like they are intoxicated on a drug. They may wander in their conversations, have a difficult time paying attention, be nearly sedated or exhibit other signs that they have taken too much of a given drug. This has to be reported immediately, as it can quickly turn into a deadly situation.
