Being a Lawyer Must Suck!

How to deal with the central emotional feature of the profession "Our firm is ruled by fear," said Steve. "Hell, the whole profession is about fear. Fear of not billing hours, fear of not bringing in business, fear of losing business. Fear of not making partner. Fear of being in trouble with my wife for working too much, and, of course, fear of being in trouble with the partnership for not working enough." He stopped for a moment, letting his own words sink in.  "And it started in law school. The whole thing runs on fear. I'm sick of being afraid...

They also studied the rates of DUI arrests and fatal alcohol-related car crashes.Alexander C. Wagenaar, lead author of the study and...

Ohio Death Penalty Law

High court lethal injection ruling has 'huge impact' The U.S. Supreme Court's decision to uphold Kentucky's lethal injection protocol means nearly two dozen Ohio convicts may soon have a date with the executioner, Ohio Public Defender Timothy Young said Wednesday, April 16.  "It has a huge impact," Young told the Dayton Daily News. "The ultimate reality is, the Supreme Court case clears the way for 20 to 22 inmates on Ohio's death row to have execution dates set." These are inmates who have exhausted their appeals and, in some cases, have had clemency hearings.The U.S. Supreme Court ruled 7-2 Wednesday that Kentucky inmates failed to prove...

The first "pitch-man" bubbled his way to fame in 1866.  George Leybourne penned some songs about getting sloshed on champagne, rechristened himself "Champagne Charlie" and was the toast (literally) of Victorian England.  Dressed in the height of ‘fast’ fashion, in bow tie and tails he would swig from a bottle of Moët declaring his love for the high life and women. (from http://www.peopleplayuk.org.)  Seizing on his fame and sex appeal, the Moet & Chandon champagne manufacturers commissioned him as their spokesman.  Soon thereafter, a rival champagne manufacturer, Clicquot, hired "The Great Vance."  The gambits worked and the celebrity endorsement was born.True to...

DUI/OVI Science: Alcohol Absorption

When an alcoholic beverage is consumed, approximately 20% of the alcohol is absorbed in the stomach and 80% is absorbed in the small intestine (Freudenrich, 2001).  After absorption, alcohol enters the bloodstream and dissolves in the water of the blood where it is quickly distributed to body tissues.  When alcohol reaches the brain, it affects the cerebral cortex first, followed by the limbic system (hippocampus and septal area), cerebellum, hypothalamus, pituitary gland, and lastly, the medulla, or brain stem.  When BAC is near toxic levels, lower order brain regions are affected, which is often followed by sleepiness, lack of consciousness,...
