Paul Walker’s Daughter Awarded Settlement Compensation For His Death

If there’s one concern when another person acts negligently while operating a motor vehicle, it’s the impact of injuries to passengers. One well publicized accident involving “Fast and Furious” star, Paul Walker, caused wide speculation immediately following his death, that it was due to driver error. Apparently, a court agreed with those initial findings after evidential examination of the accident. In an announcement on April 8, 2016, it was revealed that the late actor’s only daughter was awarded a $10 million judgment against the estate of driver, Roger Rodas.

While it is hardly considered a victory for Walker’s family, it does provide some form of monetary compensation in the absence of a confession of guilt. Since the award only reflects the independent inquiry into the deaths of Walker and the driver Rodas. Paul Walker’s 17-year-old daughter, Meadow hired attorney, Jeff Milam of the firm, Milam Law. His firm actually filed a second suit against maker of the car, Porsche, citing key mechanical failure on the fated vehicle.

Milam used his 39 years of legal expertise to secure the settlement for his client. Although, the case was settled in November 2014, it was just announced on Thursday. The money from the settlement has been placed in trust for Meadow, until she turns 21. The settlement doesn’t come close to the amount of money the late actor could have made. In a released statement Milam said that it’s only a, “fraction of what her father would have earned as an international movie star had his life not been tragically cut short.”

Another attorney who’s not afraid of taking on highly contested litigation is Sam Tabar. Tabar is an attorney and a capital strategist, who resides in New York City. He holds law degrees from both Oxford University and Columbia School of Law. Before venturing into capital strategies, Sam Tabar began practicing law as an associate with the firm, Skadden, Arps, Slater, Meagher & Flom LLP according to LinkedIn.

After years of practicing law Tabar switched careers to Capital Strategies and Business Development. Eventually, landing a well regarded position as Managing Director and Co-Manager for SPARX Group Co./PMA Investment Advisors and later on he would moved to a similar role as Director and Head of the Asia-Pacific Capital Strategy division for Bank of America Merrill Lynch. Sam Tabar saw success in his role as Managing Director for both organizations.  Currently, Mr. Tabar serves as COO of FullCycle Fund.

Athleisure: The Latest Trend In Fashion

In 2013, actress Kate Hudson began her line of athletic clothing known as Fabletics on fabletics. And so began the uber popular trend that goes by the term “athleisure.” What began as an online retailer eventually expanded to brick and mortar stores, and is an international sensation. Additionally, the success of the women’s clothing line sparked the creation of a men’s line of athletic wear, FL2. Membership with Fabletics gives clients discounts on high quality, stylish clothing that would retail for a much higher price in other stores.

People who want to rock the athleisure style on have come up with creative ways to combine outfit pieces in high fashion ways. Different daily activities can be styled with different outfit choices. One guideline on to remember is balance: when wearing a baggy item, make sure to contrast it with a tighter one. For example, wearing a baggy pants or loose fitting t-shirt, pair this item with a tighter top or fitted pants to maintain the body’s shape.

The main staple of athleisure is a pair of sneakers. When running errands or working out, leggings and a sports top from lines such as Fabletics on thekrazycouponlady give a chic upgrade to the normally grungy or relaxed look. For an event such as casual weekend plans, the sneakers and casual top can still be worn, but switching out the leggings for a pair of skinny jeans will make it dressier while remaining comfortable. And adding a pop of color – in a jacket, accessories, etc. – will make a bold statement.

What does one do for an evening out or a date? Keep the sneakers, but pair them with a dress or stylish skirt and top. Not only are sneakers more comfortable than high heels, but they add personality to what could normally be a standard, static outfit.

Bustle has reported on the athleisure trends and offered various ways to style clothing from retailers such as Fabletics. With comfortable and versatile pieces, athleisure is a trend that everyone can feel confident in.

“I Used Cleansing Cleansing Conditioner On My Fine Hair & Here’s What Happened” Recap

In the original article, which can be read on BUSTLE, Emily McClure talks in detail about her experience using “WEN Hair Sweet Almond Mint Cleansing Conditioner” on her fine hair. In case you haven’t heard of it before, Wen Hair Cleansing Conditioner replaces your shampoo, conditioner, deep conditioner, leave-in conditioner, and detangler. It fully cleans hair without suds and is free of the strong sulfates that can be found in conventional shampoos and can be damaging. Wen hair does not remove natural oils from the hair and leaves it strong and manageable.

In her article, Emily McClure writes about the one week span of time where she decided to try out Wen Hair by Chaz Dean Cleansing Conditioner to see how well it worked in real life on her fine hair. She starts out on day one, exhausted and in need of a shower after a day of travel. In the beginning, she describes her hair as “greasy/frizzy/unruly” and has a small concern about the amount of product the directions say to use. She was immediately impressed with how her hair looked and felt, but expressed a little concern on day two when she noticed that her hair, particularly the roots, were more greasy than normal, but her hair looks great in the posted photo.

She continues on to talk in detail about each day of her trial, posting plenty of photos. She mentioned getting compliments on her hair and really didn’t have anything negative to say, other than curls falling faster than normal, but also mentions that it is something that is totally normal to experience as a person who has fine hair. In the end, she sums up her week-long experience and makes recommendations based on her experience.

The History Of The Word Socialism And How Fox News Misunderstood It In An Interview With Thor Halvorssen

World War II realigned power on the planet. The powerful Russian Army drove west to Berlin where they met the Americans coming from France and the east to end the war. The European continent was decimated and it was up to the two left standing — America and Russia — to put the world back together. There was just one problem: they couldn’t agree on how.

America wanted democracy and Russia pushed communism. The two powers ended up splitting the continent right through Berlin and sealed it with a wall. The Cold War started. It was not a war of weapons, but a war of ideas; democracy versus communism.

During the Cold War, anything associated with communism was vilified, including the word socialism. An entire generation of Americans grew up using that word as profanity, even though highways, schools, post offices; anything publicly funded in America was already socialist.

Fox News knows its demographic and still uses the word socialist as a put-down. Older viewers are horrified by the word, but an entire generation of younger people aren’t imprinted with Cold-War-era rhetoric. It doesn’t scare them.

That’s why Bernie Sanders is closing the gap on Hillary Clinton and has a real shot at the White House. The 74-year-old self-described Democratic Socialist has outlived the negative connotation of the word and now stands as the symbol of the future for a whole generation. But in a recent attempt to hang the word on Sanders like a millstone, Fox News got burnt.

The conservative network interviewed the very intelligent and compassionate Thor Halvorssen, the founder of the Human Rights Foundation. Thor’s organization works against dictators all over the world and provides relief for the victims of oppression. Occasionally, a dictator hides behind a socialist government and does terrible things. But when pressed to slam socialism, Mr. Halvorssen explains that socialism is not the enemy but that dictators, using any type of government, are the enemy. Then he shocks them with the information that he has donated the maximum to the campaign of Bernie Sanders, claiming that the Vermont Senator does not take campaign contributions from the real enemies — foreign dictators.

Employees are Important Too

Employees are a valuable asset of any business. For one thing, they make sure that the company is running smoothly. The business owner also needs employees to serve the customers and address any concerns that they may have. Without employees, a business would basically crumble down on itself. For this reason, it is important for the business owner to recognize the employee. This goes beyond telling them when they make a mistake. It is also important to let them know when they are doing something right. This will encourage the employee to continue working for the company. If the employee feels appreciated, then he is more likely to stay. If he constantly feels like he is about to get fired, then he is going to look for more work elsewhere.

There are many ways to encourage an employee to continue working for the company. Among the things a business owner could do is offer incentives for the hardest worker. This can get the employee wanting to do a little more work for the company. There are also bonuses and other incentives that will encourage employees.

One example of a business owner who makes sure that the employee is satisfied is Darius Fisher. Darius Fisher is the owner of Status Labs, which is an online reputation management firm. He takes the time to make sure that his employees feel welcome working for his company.

Darius Fisher has started his company to address the needs of people who had bad reports on them that has ruined their career. He understands the effect that a bad review or a report could have on someone’s reputation. If one’s reputation is destroyed, then his business is going to go with it. Darius Fisher’s company works on reducing or even repairing the damage done by the bad report.

New York Attorney Ross Abelow Raises Money for Stray Animals

Local New York attorney Ross Abelow has geared up a Go Fund Me Campaign to assist stray animals in the greater New York area. Many shelters there are in need of extra supplies such as food, medicine, and shelter space during the winter and will have depleted their back up reserves by spring. The extreme cold in the New York area this winter made it especially hard on local shelters.

Ross Abelow earned his law degree at the Brooklyn Law School, was subsequently admitted in NY in 1990, and has been serving the New York area for several years since as a well respected and popular attorney. As part of Mr. Abelow’s ongoing commitment and service to the community, he was inspired to help the alarming number of homeless or stray animals in New York, and was therefore chosen to lead the fundraiser. The goal is to raise $5,000.00, an amount that will assist in purchasing blankets, medical care, food and housing expenses at the area animal shelters and clinics.

As part of the law firm Abelow & Cassandro LLP, Mr. Abelow specializes in family and entertainment law, as well as handling major commercial litigation cases for the firm. In addition to be active on social media websites such as Twitter and Facebook, he is also known as a writer, regularly contributing to several legal blogs and writing for his own personal blog.

The campaign started in mid January of this year and will continue until all the money has been raised for the shelters. Many shelters have had to take desperate measures, rejecting stray and homeless animals that are brought in due to lack of space. Many animals go without food or medical care, or have suffered some form of abuse. Go Fund Me makes it easy to donate to a cause such as this and it allows people to give an amount of their choosing. It is hoped that both by teaming up with the popular site Go Fund Me, and the generous nature of people who care for animals that the campaign will be a success.
