Pharmaceutical Waste

Pharmaceuticals and Personal Care Products Events

4th National Prescription Drug Take-Back Day

The Drug Enforcement Administration (DEA) along with local law enforcement will be hosting another collection event. This event is an opportunity for the public to prevent pill abuse and theft by ridding their homes of potentially dangerous expired, unused, and unwanted prescription drugs.

Date: Saturday April 28, 2012
Time: 10:00 am – 2:00 pm PST

Collection sites in your area will be listed on the U.S. DEA National Drug Take Back Initiative web page at http://www.deadiversion.usdoj.gov/drug_disposal/takeback/index.html in March 2012.

For more information on past DTSC sponsored symposia or PPCP related conferences, please refer to the Archived PPCP Events web page.

What are Pharmaceuticals and Personal Care Products (PPCPs)?

Pharmaceuticals and personal care products (PPCPs) comprise a diverse group of chemicals including, but not limited to, prescription and over-the-counter human drugs, veterinary drugs, diagnostic agents, nutritional supplements, and other consumer products such as fragrances, cosmetics, and sun-screen agents. 1,2,3,4 The term PPCPs refers to the products we use for personal health or cosmetic reasons. 2 We swallow them, rub them on to our skin, have them injected or administer them to our pets. We get them with a prescription or purchase them over the counter.

Why is DTSC Interested in PPCPs?

PPCPs are an emerging issue. PPCPs can be introduced into the environment through many routes. 1,3,4 Treated and untreated domestic sewage containing excreted PPCPs and their metabolites following human use represents an important source of these compounds in the environment. Other sources which can potentially introduce PPCPs into the environment include: leaching from landfills following disposal of expired and unused products; disposal of expired and unused PPCPs in the toilet; release of unabsorbed externally applied PPCPs (e.g. lotions) to surface waters from activities such as swimming; excreta from animals including pets and other domestic animals; use of sewage solids and manure for soil amendment and fertilization; and industrial manufacturing waste streams.

How are These Chemicals Affecting the Environment?

The U.S. Geologic Services has reported that PPCPs such as steroids, prescription and nonprescription drugs, antibiotics, hormones, and fragrances have been detected in water samples collected from streams considered susceptible to contamination from various wastewater sources such as those downstream from intense urbanization or livestock. 5 Potential risk to aquatic organisms due to exposure to PPCPs in the environment has been identified as a primary concern given that aquatic organisms may be continually exposed to chemicals, including multi-generational exposures. 2,3 There is also concern for subtle effects on ecological receptors when exposed to low concentrations. For humans, consumption of potable water which may contain trace concentrations (in the part per trillion to part per billion) of various PPCPs has been identified as one of the primary potential routes of exposure. 5 To date, much research has focused on the potential for pathogen resistance to antibiotics and endocrine distribution by natural and synthetic sex steroids. 2,3 At this time, many unknowns remain regarding the potential for adverse effects on ecological receptors and humans from exposure to PPCPs in the environment. As new information becomes available, this will facilitate more detailed evaluations of the potential toxicological significance of the detection of PPCPs in the environment. More about the toxicological issues associated with PPCPs.

What are the Regulatory Issues Associated with Pharmaceutical Management?

For a long time, the regulatory distinction between hazardous waste (as defined in the law and by U.S. EPA and DTSC in regulation) and medical waste (with its own definitions) has hampered a truly environmentally-protective approach to the very complex issues surrounding pharmaceutical management. Only recently have environmental agencies begun to grapple with these issues. There are many levels of this very complex problem that, as a multi-media, multi-disciplinary scientific agency, DTSC intends to explore. More about the regulatory issues around pharmaceutical management.

How Can I Reduce or Prevent Releases of This Waste to the Environment?

Educate ourselves, family members, friends and coworkers about this emerging environmental issue. DTSC created this web page as an information portal on this topic and related subjects.

For most of us, we have been trained to get rid of old or unwanted drugs by flushing them down the toilet. This practice evolved from our desire to keep potentially dangerous drugs out of the hands of others, especially children. However, recent research is showing that this may be the least environmentally friendly method of disposing of old or unwanted drugs. The proper disposal practice may vary depending on county you live in or the wastewater agency that serves your region. Before disposing of old or unwanted drugs, consult your local wastewater agency or household hazardous waste center on the proper disposal practice for your area.

Other actions you might consider to reduce the amount of PPCPs entering the environment are to store your medications properly so they will be useful until their established shelf life. Pay attention to the storage instructions just as you do the dosage instructions.

For old or used pharmaceuticals, currently there is not a best pollution prevention alternative, elimination or substitution. Practice Greenhealth has a web page with information regarding pharmaceutical wastes from health care facilities.

Other DTSC Associated Activities

The Office of Pollution Prevention and Technology Development (OPPTD) is preparing the first SB14 Assessment Report on the pharmaceutical industries’ efforts to reduce hazardous waste. The pharmaceutical industry assessment report will profile each of the 27 California facilities captured by SB14 and listed under Standard Industrial Classification (SIC) 2833, 2834, 2835, and 2836. Each profile will contain individual facility site information, its major waste stream reduction accomplishments from 1999 to 2002 and their projections for further reducing these major waste streams from 2003 to 2006. More about the SB 14 pharmaceutical industry assessment.

If you are interested in becoming a registered nurse, there are several schools in northern California which can provide relevant programs. Continue reading to learn more about the associate’s and bachelor’s degrees available, and how each can contribute to your goal of becoming a RN.

What You Need to Know

Students interested in registered nursing (RN) programs in northern California may elect to earn an associate’s or a bachelor’s degree in the field. Regardless of the degree earned, in order to become licensed, all nursing graduates must pass the National Council Licensing Examination (NCLEX-RN) in order to qualify for employment.

Nursing programs in northern California are offered by four-year, private and public schools.

Associate of Science in Nursing Degree Programs in Northern California

Pacific Union College offers an associate’s degree program in nursing for traditional students at the Angwin main campus. The school also offers a program for licensed vocational nurses (LVNs) who want to become RNs at Travis Air Force Base in Fairfield.

You’ll reinforce what you’ve learned in the classroom with clinical experience at local health care facilities.

The traditional program is only offered at Samuel Merritt University’s Oakland campus, while the accelerated program is available in Sacramento, San Mateo and San Francisco, as well.

  • Program Name: Bachelor of Science in Nursing and Accelerated Bachelor of Science in Nursing

  • Can be performed in the physicians office.
  • A general or spinal anesthetic is not needed during the procedure.

California Drunk Driving Law Guide – California DUI Penalties #california #dui


#

DUI Penalties

Drunk Driving penalties in California are set forth by statute and can be incredibly complex. The range of possible sentences is determined by the basic statute, with sentence enhancements for such things as:

  • Having a prior conviction within ten years
  • Speeding 20 mph over the limit
  • Having a child under 14 in the car
  • Having a blood-alcohol reading over .15%
  • Refusing to submit to chemical testing

Within the range, the actual sentence in a drinking and driving case will be affected by:

  • The facts of the case
  • Any policies of the local court and prosecutors
  • The weaknesses in the case uncovered by the defense attorney
  • The reputation of that attorney

All of this is independent of the DMV drivers license suspension . which is determined separately and which can itself be very complicated.

Southern California Center for Reproductive Medicine – IVF Center Southern California

Why SCCRM

Schedule a Consultation

Visit Our Patient Portal

The Southern California Center for Reproductive Medicine in Orange County is an independent, full service fertility clinic.

We specialize in the treatment of infertility, reproductive endocrine disorders and miscarriage. Our Newport Beach office has been open since 1992. All fertility testing, diagnosis and treatment is conducted at the Newport Beach office for the convenience of our patients. If a surgical procedure becomes part of treatment, it may be performed at Newport Beach Surgery Center or Hoag Hospital in Orange County. All fertility procedures are performed at the Newport Beach Surgery Center .

Servicing fertility patients worldwide

Because of our convenient location in the Orange County / Los Angeles area and full range of fertility services, we are treating couples from all over the world including Europe, South America, the Middle East, the Far East, Africa, Canada and Mexico. Fertility treatment can usually be coordinated with the couple s own local physician to minimize the time that must be spent here if traveling from abroad. Access to the Center is easy through John Wayne or Los Angeles International Airports. There are a number of hotels within minutes of the Center and special rates are available at some of them. The coastal Southern California area has a mild climate and is well supplied with activities from world class shopping and restaurants to all of the arts and entertainment possibilities.

Our work ethic and dedication to high-quality fertility care

Dr. Anderson s goal is to provide the best possible treatment to those who seek it. We offer an honest appraisal of every couple s unique situation, realizing that an individual approach is required to maximize chances of success. Therefore, we do not discourage those who may not be the most likely to become pregnant for the purpose of maximizing published pregnancy rates. nor do we recommend the most financially lucrative forms of fertility treatment instead of less involved and expensive alternatives that may be of merit. This field is rapidly changing and new knowledge and technological advances are constantly becoming available. Dr. Anderson and his staff strive to continuously monitor these changes and incorporate the significant breakthroughs into our available fertility treatment options whenever possible. Most importantly, our staff recognizes the sensitive nature of infertility issues and the effects they impose on relationships. At all times, the therapeutic process is conducted with compassion and an appreciation for the special needs of the individual couple trying to conceive.

Our team can help

  • Delivering personalized, sensitive counseling to help them make their best choices
  • Providing the most advanced reproductive technologies
  • Creating a caring and supportive environment

We are committed to:

  • The highest ethical standards
  • Best quality in technology and treatment
  • Affordable and cost-effective treatment
  • Excellence in our delivery of patient care
  • Success for our patients

Options to Respond #self #help, #california, #ca #divorce #forms, #divorce, #divorce


#

Options to Respond

If you have been served with a summons and a petition, you are the respondent in a court case for divorce or legal separation.

When you are served, read the papers you have received carefully. The Petition (Form FL-100 ) tells you what the petitioner (your spouse or domestic partner) is asking for. The Summons (Family Law) (Form FL-110 ) gives you important information about your rights and the divorce or separation process. It contains some standard restraining orders limiting what you can do with your property, money, and other assets or debts. It also prohibits you or your spouse or partner from moving out of state with your children from your marriage or partnership, and from applying for a new or replacement passport for any of your children together, without the prior written consent of the other or a court order. READ this form carefully!!

Once you are served, you have several options:

  1. You can do nothing — which means that whatever your spouse or domestic partner is asking for in the Petition will probably be granted. The judge will base his or her decision about property, support, and custody and visitation (if you have children together) only on what your spouse or domestic partner has requested in the Petition.
  • This situation is called a “true default” because you are “defaulting” by not responding and are not involved at all.
  • In a “true default” you are giving up your right to participate in the case.
  • Click to learn more about default or uncontested cases .
  • You can do nothing because you have a written notarized agreement with your spouse or domestic partner where you both agree to end your marriage or domestic partnership. And you agree about other things like the division of your property and your debt, spousal or partner support, and, if you have children together, child support and custody and visitation orders.
    • In this case, you also “default” because you are not filing a response.
    • BUT you are having a say in the final outcome because you are reaching a written agreement with your spouse or domestic partner. So this is a “default with agreement” case.
    • Click to learn more about default or uncontested cases
  • You file a response with the court but also reach an agreement with your spouse or domestic partner about all the issues.
    • If you choose this option, it is considered an “uncontested” case because you and your spouse or domestic partner are not fighting over the issues. You are agreeing to the terms of your divorce or legal separation.
    • Click to learn more about default or uncontested cases
  • You file a response with the court in which you disagree with what your spouse or domestic partner is asking for.
    • This situation is considered a “contested” case since you and your spouse or domestic partner do not have an agreement and will need the court to make decisions in your case.
    • Click to find out what to do in a “contested” case .
  • If you decide to file a response, you have 30 days from the date you were served with the Summons and Petition to respond.

    Note: You may be able to get help paying for a lawyer in certain situations. To learn more, read Asking for Lawyer’s Fees and Costs in Family Law Cases .

    California Car Insurance Rates from $49 per Month! #california #car #insurance

    California Car Insurance Rates from $49/Month

    California has a well-earned reputation for being an expensive place to live. At an average of $1,362 per annum as of 2011, California car insurance rates are higher the national average. It is certainly well above Idaho s low of $875 per year. It surprises many to learn, however, that Maryland tops the average annual cost at $1,979.

    Averages may be interesting, but you really want to know what your own insurance is going to cost. A lot of factors go into how insurance providers price individual auto insurance. Some of these factors you can control and others you can t. The first factor to consider is how much coverage you are going to carry.

    What are the minimum car insurance coverage requirements for California?

    Drivers in California are required drivers to have a minimum of $15,000$30,000 in bodily injury liability coverage. You are also required to carry $5,000 in property damage coverage. Proof of this overage must be carried in the vehicle at all times. The chart below summarizes these requirements.

    If you look at the most common column in this chart, it shows that most people elect to carry insurance above the minimums. The reasoning is that insurance is there for a purpose other than keeping you legal. Insurance protects you from financial risks in an accident Costs for injuries and repairs continue to increase yearly.

    An example of coverage to consider that is not required is what is called UI/UIM coverage. This provides protection should you be in an accident with a driver that does not have insurance or is underinsured. One other common coverage is comprehensive insurance. This provides payment for damage from causes other than an accident. Hailstorms, fire, even hitting an animal is the reason for this type of insurance.

    What are ways to save money on California auto insurance?

    Having only the minimum coverage is not always a wise way to save money. This will prove to be the case when you have an accident and find yourself with significant expenses. The challenge is to purchase insurance for all the coverage you need at the best price.

    The idea of searching through the different insurance provider can be intimidating to a lot of people. The best place to start the effort to find affordable car insurance rates in California is with a good website like Californiacarinsurancerates.net. A service like this has already waded through thousands of pages of information to compare all the various coverages and rates. They even check things like towing and rental reimbursement options so you can make the best coverage choices.

    Beyond the coverage you choose, your driving record is very important. Drive safely and avoid accidents, and you will save substantial costs. Remember the following speed limits for California.

    #

    DUI ATTORNEY.

    A DUI (drunk driving) arrest and charge is a significant shock to most people since this may be their first serious encounter with the criminal justice system other than a traffic violation. For many, it is a wakeup call to make some changes in their lives. Drunk driving is a serious offense that can cost you thousands of dollars, not just in fines and legal fees, but in substantially increased car insurance premiums over a period of years and other consequences that can create many unwelcome changes in your life.

    As a DUI offender, you will experience what it feels like to be arrested, handcuffed, and held in a detention area or cell and to appear before a judge. You will to deal with a restricted driver’s license, if you qualify or no license at all. Once you do have your license reinstated, you may have to go through the indignity of an interlock ignition system installed on your car that requires you to blow into it to ensure you have no alcohol in your system before it starts.

    Depending on the California county where you are convicted, you will likely have to spend some time in jail. If this is not your first DUI arrest or conviction, you will undoubtedly have to spend an extended time in jail, which could affect your job, result in decreased or no income for a period that can cause financial chaos for you and your family, and loss of your driver’s license for months or years in some cases.

    Although most DUI offenses are misdemeanors, you face increased penalties if your blood alcohol content (BAC) is at least 0.15% or if you had a child under 14 as a passenger when you were arrested. If you caused an accident resulting in serious bodily injury or arrest, you could face felony charges or even vehicular manslaughter that could result in years in state prison.

    A DUI is Public Record

    A DUI conviction means you now have a criminal record that is public record. Your employer or potential employer will see it, and it can affect your ability to find rental housing or enroll in school.

    California Drug Treatment Programs

    California Drug Alcohol Abuse Prevention

    California’s goal for Substance Abuse Prevention is to develop and maintain a comprehensive, statewide prevention system that reduces alcohol and other drug related problems in order to improve the health, safety and economic conditions for all California residents.

    The impact of drug and alcohol addiction doesn’t just affect the individuals suffering with addiction and dependency, it affects the whole community. Drugs like marijuana, methamphetamines, heroin, and cocaine are smuggled into California from Mexico which adds to the drug situation throughout California. Drug education and prevention is crucial concerning the risks, dangers and crime associated with drug trafficking, drug abuse and prescription drug misuse.

    California Cocaine Addiction

    The availability of cocaine is high throughout the state of California. There are other areas of California where cocaine is easily found; in San Francisco and certain areas of northern California cocaine is also easily obtained. Los Angeles is one of the nation’s biggest cocaine transshipment and distribution centers.

    Cocaine is a very powerful illegal stimulant that causes serious health problems when used. Another form of cocaine that’s highly abused is crack cocaine. Crack cocaine is processed from cocaine for the purpose of inhaling the toxic vapors when smoking it. This form of cocaine is also referred to as rock crystal. When the rock crystal is heated it makes a crackle sound which is where it gets its name from.

    Cocaine is abused by many people because it creates an intense feeling of euphoria when used as well as increased energy and the user feels sharp and alert. Smoking crack cocaine is preferred by many users but because of the short lived high, use needs to be repeated. Unfortunately cocaine is highly addictive and causes very serious health problems when used.

    California Heroin Addiction

    Heroin is a problem because this drug is widely available with high purity levels. Because it’s so pure young people especially new users snort heroin and according to specialists they ingest high amounts and become addicted much faster. Heroin is an opiate that’s made from morphine. Users inject heroin, snort it, or smoke it for the purpose of getting high. Individuals that use heroin can form tolerance to this drug easily and in a short period of time need to increase the amount they use in order to experience the same effects. Heroin addiction is very widespread throughout California and the United States and comes with serious health risks.

    California Marijuana Addiction

    In California as well as most states, marijuana is the most available and abused illegal drug by people of all ages. Marijuana is smuggled in from Mexico in vast low grade quantities. The high grade marijuana which is much more potent is smuggled into California from Canada. The Canadian potent marijuana is referred to as BC bud. Throughout California potent marijuana is produced in domestic indoor hydroponic gardens as well.

    Most marijuana users prefer to smoke it by rolling it into a ‘joint’ or ‘nail’ or smoking it through a pipe although there are people who smoke marijuana through a water pipe called a ‘bong’. It’s not uncommon for some marijuana users to mix it in different foods, drinks or brew it similar to tea.

    California Methamphetamine Addiction

    Meth is the biggest drug threat in California. The production and distribution of high quality methamphetamines in California is controlled by Mexican Drug Trafficking Organizations. There is another secondary drug trafficking group that is responsible for some of the meth production and distribution which consists of Caucasians for the most part. This secondary group operates much less sophisticated small labs.

    Clandestine meth labs are usually found in less populated rural areas, remote desert locations and forested areas in northern California. The amount of seized meth labs in California has decreased but there has been an increase in meth labs south of the border in Mexico.

    Meth is an addictive central nervous system stimulant that’s structured in a similar way to amphetamines. Methamphetamines are abused for the purpose of getting high by many people and as a result, many people have formed dependency and are in need of treatment. In order to experience the intense high meth produces, the individual either smokes, snorts, or injects it. There are many serious health problems associated with methamphetamine abuse .

    California Club Drugs

    The use of Ecstasy (MDMA) is showing signs of decrease in use throughout California; ecstasy was once viewed as the most popular club drug among teens and young adults. It’s still consistently available in certain areas though. The decrease is partially due to law enforcement cracking down on the individuals that promote raves in the county area of San Diego and putting a stop to these all night parties. Part of the selling and distribution of ecstasy took place during raves which made a big difference once they were unable to hold their events.

    California Prescription Drug Misuse and Abuse

    The misuse of prescription drugs is increasing throughout California for non-medical reasons and is a definite cause for concern. Unfortunately the misuse of prescription drugs comes with many serious health risks and medical problems. When prescription drugs are taken in high doses as well as repeated misuse, tolerance and dependency are inevitable.

    Prescription pain killers, CNS depressants used to treat anxiety and sleep disorders, and stimulants for the treatment of ADHD are commonly abused not only in California but throughout the nation. Many young people and young adults misuse prescription drugs for the purpose of getting high and have developed dependency to them. Health risks and dangers associated with prescription drug abuse are very serious and sometimes life threatening.

    California Binge Drinking Alcoholism

    Around 5.8 million adults in California are binge drinkers; this is about 21 percent of all adults. The definition of binge drinking would be 5 or more drinks for men and 4 or more drinks for women taking place on the same occasion at least once during the past month. There are over 2.2 million Californians who meet the criteria for alcohol dependence or abuse .

    Combining illegal drugs, prescription drugs or over the counter medications is extremely dangerous and isn’t taken serious enough. Sometimes mixing alcohol and other substances is done unintentionally, older adults sometimes without thinking combine alcohol with acetaminophen (Tylenol) and this comes with serious health risks. If a person has more than 3 drinks a day and mixes them with acetaminophen they risk liver damage.

    Mixing antidepressants with alcohol is very serious because it causes depression to become worse. Antidepressants like Wellbutrin, Elavil, and Prozac should never be combined with any alcoholic beverage no matter what it is. It’s very important not to mix sedatives like Valium with alcohol, this combination can be lethal.

    RANK YOUR FAVORITE U.S. LICENSE PLATES

    California’s license plate currently ranks as the 35th most popular in the country!

    CarInsurance.com commissioned Quadrant Information Services to provide a report of average auto insurance rates for a 2016 Honda Accord for nearly every ZIP code in the United States. We calculated rates using data for up to six large carriers (Allstate, Farmers, GEICO, Nationwide, Progressive and State Farm).
    Averages for the default result are based on insurance for a married 40-year-old male who commutes 12 miles to work each day, with policy limits of 100/300/100 ($100,000 for injury liability for one person, $300,000 for all injuries and $100,000 for property damage in an accident) and a $500 deductible on collision and comprehensive coverage. The rate includes uninsured motorist coverage.
    Averages for customized rates are based on drivers ages 20, 30, 40, 50, 60 and 70 for the following coverage levels: state minimum liability, liability of 50/100/50 and 100/300/100 with $500 deductible on comprehensive and collision. These hypothetical drivers have clean records and good credit. Average rates are for comparative purposes.
    Your own rate will depend on your personal factors and vehicle.

    State Minimum:
    Required liability coverage to drive legally in your state; some states mandate additional coverage, such as personal injury protection, uninsured motorist, underinsured motorist.

    Liability Only 50/100/50:
    $50,000 per person/$100,000 maximum per accident for bodily injury; $50,000 for property damage. Liability pays for injuries/damage you cause others.

    Full Coverage 100/300/100:
    $100,000 per person/$300,000 maximum per accident for bodily injury; $100,000 for property damage; comprehensive and collision coverage with $500 deductible. Liability pays for injuries/damage you cause others. Comprehensive and collision pay for damage to your car.

    Cheapest car insurance in San Diego

    If you need just enough coverage to drive legally, you ll want to shop for the lowest liability car insurance limits required by the state. In California, (written as 15/30/5) that means your liability car insurance would pay up to:

    • $15,000 for injuries you cause to others
    • $30,000 per accident
    • $5,000 for damage you cause to others cars and property

    The state average rate for a year of minimum coverage is $723, according to our rate analysis. You would pay just $188 more if you hiked your liability coverage to 50/100/50.

    Best car insurance in San Diego

    If you want to have enough car insurance coverage to protect your home and assets, you should buy liability insurance in the following amounts:

    • $100,000 to pay for others medical bills
    • $300,000 to pay for injuries to others in an accident you cause
    • $100,000 to pay for damage to others property

    You should also consider buying these optional coverages:

    • Comprehensive, which replaces stolen cars and covers damage to your car from floods, fire, hail, vandalism.
    • Collision, which pays for damage to your car from accidents.

    Comprehensive insurance and collision coverage pay out up to the actual cash value of your car. In California, comprehensive costs $98 and collision costs $361, on average per year, according to the Insurance Information Institute. These two coverages come with a deductible. That s the amount you pay for each claim before your insurer pays out. Deductibles of $1,000, $500 and $250 are the usual amounts from which you can choose. The lower the deductible is, the higher your rate will be.

    Monthly Topic Specific Workshops

    On a monthly basis one of our Board Certified Behavior Analysts (BCBA) holds a topic based 1-2 hour workshop at our center in Salida. These 1-2 hour workshops are held in the evening and childcare is provided by trained behavioral therapists. Parents/caregivers and families of clients receiving any of our comprehensive services are welcome to attend for free. Topics vary form month to month and some more popular topics are repeated more than once a year as requested. Preparation for these presentations always involves a review of current research and is founded in basic applied behavioral principles. The information is however presented to parents and caregivers in a very user-friendly format with the use of limited professional terminology that might overwhelm parents and caregivers. Positive behavioral strategies that are developmentally appropriate are presented.

    • Increasing Cooperation
    • Increasing Food Selection
    • Toilet Training
    • Understanding Autism
    • Coping with Holiday Stress
    • Incorporating Learning into Play
    • Routines and Schedules
    • Maladaptive Behaviors
    • Improving Communication
    • Improving Social/Interaction Skills

    Our Hands on Behavioral Parent Training Workshop is an eight-hour course also offered monthly, that demonstrates basic behavior analytic strategies and how to apply those strategies at home and in the community. This class is user-friendly and a variety of real life examples across behaviors and ages are shown through videos and vignettes. Parents/caregivers actively participate as the instructor continually presents ASR s (Active Student Responding activities) where parents are asked to problem solve and demonstrate their understanding of the information throughout the class.

    It is crucial that parents participate on some level in treatment so that skills can generalize and maintain over time. Typically the parent/caregiver is briefed weekly and is asked on a weekly basis to participate in what we refers to as Phase 3 where we begin to generalize the current skills being taught. Target skills are generalized systematically so that the child can utilize the skill regardless of the how it is presented (Phase 2) or the environment, or who presents it (Phase 3). Parents/caregivers play a key role in assisting therapists transfer skills in the final phase of skill acquisition (Phase 3).

    Testimonials

    [Our child] is able to listen and work on tasks for 25 minutes or more. His eye contact is 100% better. He is able to understand English and Spanish. He has also started talking. He responds to his name, and has better behavior throughout the day.

    Master’s in Film and Media Production

    Overview of our MA in Film and Media Production

    The Academy makes the accelerated schedule possible by creating an extended academic year, allowing students to complete three full-length semesters in one calendar year.

    New York Film Academy MA degree programs are offered only at our Los Angeles campus.

    Throughout the filmmaking MA program each student writes, shoots, directs, and edits eight films, and works on at least 20 more.

    ONE-YEAR ACCELERATED MA

    The New York Film Academy Master of Arts (MA) in Film & Media Production is a three semester accelerated graduate program. Designed to educate aspiring content creators, it is a hands-on, total immersion, professional course of study. Each student will create eight of their own film media projects in an array of formats and genres. They will work in collaboration on their classmates’ projects on at least 20 more. The capstone of the MA Film and Media Production program is a written thesis paper exploring the ideas and themes that are studied during the course of the entire program. MA students will have opportunities to develop and deepen their thesis papers in the second semester of their studies in Thesis Development class, under the expert guidance of NYFA’s professionally active faculty. Students will then progress to finalize their thesis work in the third semester, in Thesis Review.

    Film and media production is constantly evolving in the 21st century — and so is the New York Film Academy’s filmmaking Master’s program. NYFA’s filmmaking MA program provides creative visual storytellers with the skills needed to thrive and succeed. The intensive curriculum challenges students, develops their skills, and prepares them for the new and evolving production world of today. Students will gain experience shooting their projects on the newest in HD, film, and digital equipment, from Canon 5D to Red Dragon, as well as classic film cameras like Panavision and Arriflex.

    FILMMAKING MA: SEMESTER ONE OVERVIEW

    MA Filmmaking students begin their immersion in film production through a series of intense classes in directing, screenwriting, cinematography, and editing. These classes support a number of short film productions that quickly put students’ skills into practice and assist them with developing proficiency in the overall production process. Each student will direct four short film/media projects in the first half of the semester.

    Students will also develop their leadership and collaborative skills through fulfilling the essential roles of Director of Photography, Assistant Camera Operator, and Gaffer (Lighting Technician) on the films of their classmates.

    Dialogue production is explored in depth in the second half of the semester while classes in directing, screenwriting, and editing continue. The final project of the semester is the digital dialogue film, which students will write, direct, and edit.

    Throughout the semester students are immersed in a course about the changing formats of media production in today’s entertainment marketplace. This course prepares them to undertake production of their thesis film in semester two either as a short film or as a new, still developing format, such as webisode, or content for mobile applications.

    The combination of these classes will prepare students for the second semester and production of their Thesis Projects.

    LEARNING GOALS

    • Art, aesthetics, and technique of visual storytelling including directing, cinematography, and editing.
    • Fundamentals of film production and digital editing.
    • Survey and examination of contemporary media formats and distribution vehicles from a content creator’s perspective.
    • Fundamental training in acting and directing actors.
    • Immersion in screenwriting craft.
    • Develop an ability to collaborate with — and lead — a student film crew.

    PRODUCTION GOALS

    • Write, direct, and edit four short film/media projects.
    • Crew as cinematographer, gaffer, and/or assistant camera on approximately 12 additional films.
    • Write a short film script with dialogue.
    • Write, direct and edit a dialogue film.
    • Successfully complete Production Lab exercise.

    FILMMAKING MA: SEMESTER TWO & THREE OBJECTIVES

    The second semester of the Master of Arts in film and media production program challenges students to develop their craft artistically and technically, and to progress beyond their earlier achievements with the medium. Building upon the filmmaking foundations learned in the previous semester, students continue with their directing, screenwriting, cinematography, and editing classes.

    Film Production Lab Two, an intensive in the field production class, provides instruction in all of these areas through a series of “in the field” productions. The development of professional on-set conduct, leadership, and collaborative skills are also rigorously developed in this class.

    The branding and marketing required to make an entrance into the crowded contemporary media field is studied at length prior to production of the thesis project. This allows students time to acquire any provisions they need to successfully promote the project.

    The last film project of the filmmaking MA is the Final Film: a single production of up to 15 minutes in length, or multiple shorter media projects. It may be a short film intended for film festivals and distribution which incorporates all of the disciplines instructed throughout the semester, or a new format as studied in the Media and Society class. Current examples include webisodes, branded entertainment, short TV pilots, or commercials. The students’ ambitions and capabilities as evidenced in the thesis project are expected to increase from the first semester projects. Students will also expand their knowledge of production and collaborative abilities through acting as crew members on five of their classmates’ productions.

    Intensive classes in post-production assist the student not only with completing the final steps of the filmmaking process, but also with developing an ability to give and receive editorial and creative feedback on their project.

    LEARNING GOALS

    • Advance in proficiency in the fields of directing, editing, and cinematography.
    • Develop an increased ability to produce short films at a higher level.
    • Advance in proficiency in collaboration and leadership skills.
    • Acquire a comprehension of branding and marketing as required to promote the thesis project.
    • Develop an ability to give and receive constructive editorial and creative feedback on a project.

    PRODUCTION GOALS

    • Direct and edit a thesis project of up to 15 minutes in length (shot on 16mm film, 35mm film, or High Def).
    • Develop proficiency with the second semester equipment package.
    • Participate as a principle crew member in five fellow students’ films.
    • Direct or DP a Film Production Lab Two project.

    FILMMAKING MA: YEAR-END SCREENINGS

    The thesis project will be presented in a movie theater for an invited audience. Students are responsible for inviting all guests. This public screening is not part of the formal evaluation process, but serves as a celebration of the students’ progress and achievements thus far.

    Newport Beach, California – City Information, Fast Facts, Schools, Colleges, and

    Newport Beach, California

    Overview

    Introduction to Newport Beach

    Incorporated in 1906, the Pacific coastal city of Newport Beach, California, is situated in Orange County, 10 miles south of downtown Santa Ana and 17 miles south of Anaheim. Bordering the city is Huntington Beach to the west, Costa Mesa and Irvine to the north and Crystal Cove State Park to the east. Newport Beach is home to several well known communities, including Corona del Mar, Balboa Island, Newport Coast, San Joaquin Hills and Balboa Peninsula (also known as Balboa).

    In 1870, Captain Samuel S. Dunnells successfully steered his 105-ton river steamer, the “Vaquero,” through upper Newport Bay, dispelling the prevalent theory at the time that the bay was too treacherous for travel. The harbor was named a “New Port” by the principal landowners in the area, James and Robert McFadden, who created McFadden’s Landing and a few years later, McFadden’s Wharf. By the early 1900s, Newport Beach had already become a tourist destination with the arrival of the Pacific Electric Railway, which terminated at the Balboa Pavilion. By the mid-20th century, a number of famous celebrities would call Newport Beach their home. One of the most recognizable was John Wayne (known as “the Duke”). Other area celebrities over the years have included Shirley Temple, James Cagney, Humphrey Bogart, Errol Flynn, Roy Rogers, Joey Bishop and George Burns. Today, Newport Beach remains very much a tourist destination, possessing a harbor crowded with boats, streets busy with shoppers and 6.2 miles of beaches filled with surfers and swimmers.

    Things To Do In Newport Beach

    Visitors to Newport Beach will never be at a loss for things to do, places to go or sights to see. True to its name, the city offers numerous beaches to suit every beachgoer’s taste, among them the Wedge (a body-surfing hot-spot). Other outdoor attractions include:

    • The Catalina Flyer: a giant 500 passenger catamaran, which provides daily transportation from the Balboa Peninsula to Santa Catalina Island.
    • The Balboa Fun Zone: features a Ferris wheel, a 14-foot trampoline, an old-time carousel built in 1938, laser tag, and bumper cars in addition to restaurants and shops.
    • The Back Bay: a wildlife sanctuary.
    • The Newport Aquatic Center: offers kayaking, canoeing, and rowing and has been used as a training ground for many Olympians throughout the years.
    • The Balboa Island Ferry: transports pedestrians, cars, and bikes across the harbor channel between Balboa Island and the Balboa Peninsula.
    • Fashion Island: provides an outdoor shopping experience with over 200 stores and 40 restaurants.

    Among the many cultural and historic attractions in Newport Beach are the following:

    • Newport Theater Arts Center: Known as the finest community theater in Orange County.
    • Sherman Gardens Photo Tour: includes a beautiful public garden as well as the Sherman Library for California history.
    • The Orange County Museum of Art: exhibits art from a variety of modern artists.
    • Balboa Pavilion: Newport Beach’s first landmark, built in 1905.
    • McFadden’s Wharf: built in 1889.
    • Newport Harbor Nautical Museum: the largest nautical museum in Orange County.
    • Lido Marine Village: open air center with brick walkways, interesting shops, and gondola rides.

    Annual events which take place in Newport Beach include the Newport to Ensenada Yacht Race and Newport Beach International Film Festival (both held in April), the Newport Beach Festival of the Arts (held in May), the SandCastle Contest (a sand-sculpture contest held at Corona del Mar City and State Beach every summer), Flight of the Lasers (a sailboat race held in Newport Harbor every July), Character Boat Parade/Wooden Boat Festival (also held in July), Taste of Newport (a three-day food, wine and music festival held in September) and the Newport Harbor Christmas Boat Parade (held in mid-December).

    Orange County is home to several world-class attractions that are located outside the city borders of Newport Beach but still within easy commuting distance. These include Disneyland and Disney’s California Adventure Park (Anaheim), Knott’s Berry Farm Knott’s Soak City (Buena Park), the International Surfing Museum (Huntington Beach), the Orange County Zoo (Orange), the Wild Rivers Waterpark (Irvine) and the Marconi Automotive Museum (Tustin).

    Orange County is also home to several pro sports teams. Baseball fans can watch Major League action when the Los Angeles Angels of Anaheim play their home games. Hockey fans can take the short trip to Anaheim to see the NHL’s Mighty Ducks. Surfers will recognize nearby Huntington Beach as home to the Surfing Hall of Fame.

    California DUI: What are the Penalties? #dui #felony #california

    California DUI: What are the Penalties?

    What’s the minimum and maximum penalties for a first DUI conviction?

    Assuming there is no bodily injury or death resulting from the DUI, the minimum terms for a misdemeanor first conviction are as follows:

    • $390 fine plus over $1,000 in ordinary penalty assessments, plus additional DUI-only assessments for a total of approxi­mately $1,800.
    • 48-hour jail sentence or a 90-day license restriction allowing you to drive to and from your work—and for work—if required, and to and from an alcohol treatment program. If the 90-day restriction is imposed, it begins after your DMV four-month suspension or 30-day suspension followed by a five-month restriction.
    • Attendance and completion of a $500, three-month alcohol-treatment program (nine months if your blood alcohol level was 0.20% or higher. Completing the program is a requirement for ever being able to drive again following a “per-se” DMV license suspension and for minimizing that suspension to 30 days (plus five or eight months of restricted driving) instead of the six- or ten-month flat suspension that would otherwise be imposed.
    • Loss of your driver’s license for at least 30 days, followed by either a five-month restriction to drive to, from, and for work and to and from an alcohol treatment program, or an additional two-month restriction that allows you to drive only to and from the program.

    The maximum penalties for a misdemeanor first DUI conviction in California is a $1,000 fine plus over $2,600 in penalty ­assessments, six months’ imprisonment in the county jail, a six-month license suspension ; ten months for blood alcohol level of 0.15% or more, having your vehicle “impounded” (stored at your expense) for 30 days, and being required to attach an “interlock” breath device to your vehicle that will not allow the car to start if there is any alcohol on your breath. This will cost you about $800.

    What type of probation is required of a first offender?

    Almost all first-time offenders are placed on probation for three to five years. If you violate any of the terms of your probation, you can face a nonjury hearing where additional penalties can be applied. The standard conditions of probation include: (1) not driving with any measurable amount of alcohol in your system, (2) submitting to a blood or roadside breathalyzer (PAS) test upon the request of a police officer and (3) refraining from further violations of the law (no further misdemeanors — ordinary traffic infractions don’t count).

    What’s the minimum and maximum penalties for a second DUI conviction?

    If no one is injured or killed as a result of the DUI, the minimum penalties a judge will impose for a second DUI conviction (within 10 years of the first DUI) include the following:

    • a $390 fine plus penalty assessments for a total of approximately $1,800
    • ten days or 96 hours (including two 48-hour sessions) in jail
    • completion of an 18- or 30-month second-­offender alcohol-treatment program, which costs about $1,800, as a condition of probation. You must complete this program if you ever want to drive again. Enrollment in this program also allows you to reduce the two-year suspension to one year, followed by a two-year license restriction that allows you to drive to, from, and in your work, and to and from the program—after the first year of suspension, and
    • installation of an “interlock” device on all ­vehicles you own .

    The maximum penalties for a misdemeanor second conviction within ten years of a prior conviction (counted from the date of the previous offense to the date of the second offense) include: a $1,000 fine plus penalty assessments for a total of approximately $3,000, one year in jail, a two-year license suspension by the DMV, impoundment of your vehicle for up to 30 days at your expense, and

    required installation of an “interlock” device on all vehicles you own.

    What’s the minimum and maximum penalties for a third and subsequent DUI convictions?

    Assuming there is no bodily injury or death resulting from the DUI, the minimum penalties are as follows:

    • a $390 fine plus over $1,000 in ordinary ­penalty assessments, plus additional DUI-only assessments for a total of approximately $1,800
    • 120 days in jail for a third offense, 180 days for a fourth offense and
    • revocation of your driver’s license for three years (third offense) or four years (fourth ­offense), and completion of a 30-month multi-offender program to get your license back.

    The maximum penalties for a third and fourth offense within ten years are as follows: a $5,000 fine plus over $13,000 in penalty ­assessments for a total of $18,000, one year in jail for a third offense; 16 months in state prison for a fourth offense, if charged as a felony, impoundment of your vehicle for up to 90 days or even forfeiture and loss of your vehicle, revocation of your driver’s license for three years (third offense) or four years (fourth offense), and a 30-month alcohol treatment program before getting your license restored.

    What happens if someone is killed or injured in a DUI?

    If someone is killed or injured as the result of driving under the influence of alcohol, or while blood alcohol is 0.08% or more, the driver can be found guilty of a felony and could go to state ­prison for over a year, and possibly for up to five years, depending on whether it’s the driver’s first, second, or third offense. Prior convictions for misdemeanor under-the-influence or over-0.08% driving count as prior offenses for the purpose of increasing the prison sentence. So do prior convictions of alcohol-related reckless driving. The jury (and sometimes the judge) will have the option of reducing the offense to a misdemeanor, but even in such cases, the person convicted could still spend up to a year in the county jail—and probably will, since judges take DUI extremely seriously under these circumstances. Also, a person faced with a fourth drunk-driving charge over a ten-year period may be charged with a felony, even where no one was ­injured as a result of the offense.

    Undue Influence

    Undue influence is a key element in financial abuse cases. Almost always, the elderly victim was taken advantage of through coercion, manipulation or trickery and thus lost their property and money to the perpetrator.

    California Civil Code Section 1575 describes undue influence as:

    The use, by one in whom a confidence is reposed by another, or who holds a real or apparent authority over him or her, of such confidence or authority for the purpose of obtaining an unfair advantage over him or her;

    Taking an unfair advantage of another s weaker state of mind; or

    Taking a grossly oppressive and unfair advantage of another s necessities or distress.

    As you can see, taking advantage of an elder is the key theme in financial abuse cases.

    There are numerous ways that the elderly are taken advantage of. One of the most prolific is the improper use of financial powers of attorney. Placed into the hands of a greedy son or daughter, this powerful document can become a license to steal . Here s a quick example:

    Mom had always lived independently and always handled her own finances. She would never relinquish control over her investments or bank accounts. However, over the years she began to develop symptoms of dementia short and long term memory loss. Although she had some friends, none of them felt it was their place to step in and assist her with her financial matters.

    Because of the current economic situation . her son recently lost his job and his bank was threatening to foreclose on his home. He now sees an easy way out. He relentlessly badgers mom until he overpowers her deep-rooted need for independence, and unduly influences her into signing a financial power of attorney by convincing her that she needs help in paying her bills. Son now takes the power of attorney to mom s bank and adds his name on both her checking and savings accounts.

    It isn t long until her accounts are depleted and she never saw it coming because of her diminished mental capacity.

    Under California law, undue influence can be presumed to have occured whenever a special relationship exists between the elder and the perpetrator. Determining whether a special relationship exists involves questions of fact and depends on the circumstances of each case. Such a relationship can be established by the close proximity of the perpetrator to the elderly victim. Caregivers, nurses, friends or relatives can all, potentially, be so involved in the elder s life that such a special relationship exists to trigger the presumption that undue influence occurred.

    The importance of this presumption, once established, is that it shifts the burden to the defendant (the son in the above example) to prove that undue influence did not occur.

    Another factor in determining whether undue influence occurred, it is a determination as to the adequacy of consideration that was given to the elder by the defendant. In making such a determination, the Court will consider the degree of isolation, failing health, and mental capacity of the elder and what benefit, if any, the defendant provided to the elder.

    One more factor is whether or not the elder obtained independent legal advice before executing a power of attorney or completing a conveyance of real or personal property. In most cases of elder financial abuse, the perpetrator did not take steps to have the transaction reviewed by an attorney.

    One of these factors, by themselves, is probably insufficient to show that the elder was subjected to undue influence and that the conveyance of real or personal property should be undone. However, a combination of these factors can be enough to prove undue influence and to convince the court that the power of attorney be declared void, or that the transaction, conveyance or contract should be rescinded and the property wrongfully taken must be returned to the elder.

    Many remedies exist when undue influence has been used to obtain property. California s Elder Abuse and Dependent Adult Civil Protection Act provides nearly every remedy under the sun, and a civil action can request that the defendant be liable for attorney fees, costs, and punitive damages, as well as all special and general damages.

    If you or a loved one have been the victim of undue influence, then pick up the phone and give us a call. We re here to help. The initial telephone consultation is always free.

    Newport Beach DUI Lawyer #newport #beach #dui #lawyer, #california #dui #laws


    • Newport Beach DUI Lawyer

    Newport Beach DUI Attorneys

    If you have been arrested for DUI in Newport Beach or are facing criminal DUI charges in Newport Beach (Harbor) Court. our experienced DUI attorneys are prepared to help. The Law Offices of Taylor & Taylor, with offices in Irvine, Long Beach, and Orange is a nationally-known law firm of DUI lawyers specializing in DUI defense exclusively: no clients but those charged with drunk driving are accepted. Our Irvine DUI lawyers average 21 years of criminal experience and each DUI lawyer has the support of the firm’s expert staff: a former DUI Task Force officer, a former Crime Lab alcohol testing supervisor and a former California DMV license suspension hearing officer.

    The DUI defense firm has received the prestigious A-V peer review rating from the Martindale-Hubbell International Law Directory ( very high to preeminent in legal ability and ethics) – the highest awarded and one shared by fewer than 7% of all lawyers in the country. The Law Offices of Taylor Taylor has also been recognized for its excellence by client review-based awards from Yelp and Avvo, as well as by voting by fellow attorneys as Southern California Super Lawyers for 12 of the past 14 years. And the Better Business Bureau has given the firm the highest A+ rating for the past 13 years.

    We invite you to contact us at our offices in Irvine, Long Beach, or Orange for a free consultation about your Newport Beach DUI criminal case and DMV driver’s license suspension hearing. We also invite you to visit the firm’s main website, and review the many informative pages addressing such helpful subjects as Breathalyzer Accuracy and DUI License Suspensions as well as answers to such frequently asked questions as What will happen if I refuse to take the breathalyzer test? and What does it cost to retain a DUI attorney?

    Driving under the influence of alcohol, or “DUI” as it is usually called, is the most commonly committed crime in the United States. Yet it is almost always committed by a noncriminal – that is, by an otherwise respectable citizen who has never been in trouble with the law. Consequently, the accused citizen often turns to an attorney not specialized in drunk driving defense. As experienced DUI defense attorneys well know, this is invariably a tragic mistake. It is critical for the individual accused of DUI to be aware of certain facts:

    1. Though the most common of all offenses, DUI is one of the most complex to understand and defend properly, partly due to the complexities of breath and blood alcohol analysis.
    2. The stakes in a DUI case are higher than realized – far higher in the long run than for most other misdemeanors.
    3. A unique system of legal laws and procedures exists in DUI cases, a system geared to facilitate a conviction in the absence of expert legal representation.

    PsyD | Doctor of Psychology

    Introduction to the Doctor of Psychology (PsyD)

    One of the most popular degree programs at CalSouthern, the Doctor of Psychology (PsyD) is an applied, clinically focused degree that meets the educational requirements for licensure as a clinical psychologist in the state of California. The PsyD culminates in a doctoral project focused on a topic about which you are most passionate—it’s one of the most exceptionally rewarding academic experiences you can undertake. You’ll learn from talented educators who are also leading practitioners in their fields.

    Credits required for degree completion

    Maximum transfer credits accepted

    Program length

    4 Years (full-time status)
    All coursework is taken online with practicum done at approved local sites.

    Payment options

    Learn More About Our Online PsyD Degree Program

    The PsyD: Psychology’s Applied Doctorate

    The Doctor of Psychology (PsyD) differs from the PhD in that, whereas the PhD is focused primarily on academic research and scholarly publication, the PsyD degree is an applied degree that is clinically focused. It emphasizes counseling and therapy and gives you great leverage and opportunity in your career—you can move into virtually any position in any organizational hierarchy with the PsyD.

    The PsyD also is a degree that can lead to licensure as a clinical psychologist; CalSouthern’s online PsyD program meets the educational requirements for licensure in California and CalSouthern alumni have been successful in obtaining licensure via the PsyD program. (The requirements vary state-by-state, and we encourage you to inquire about your state’s policies. Of course, we’re happy to answer any questions you might have regarding licensure.)

    CalSouthern’s online PsyD program attracts students from across the country and around the world. It’s an innovative degree program that combines a comprehensive selection of foundational courses as well as a variety of elective coursework that emphasizes the service orientation of a professional clinical degree.

    The PsyD program culminates not in a dissertation, but in a doctoral project that is challenging and rigorous—and one of the most rewarding academic pursuits you’ll ever experience. The doctoral project—which may include a community-based action-research project, a critical analysis of the literature in a field of study, or a clinical application and analysis—can focus on a topic of the greatest interest to you and about which you are most passionate.

    We encourage you to review the courses that comprise the PsyD program, read the bios of the School of Behavioral Sciences faculty (all faculty mentors in the PsyD program have a doctoral degree as well as extensive experience as a mental health care practitioner), and peruse a few of the alumni profiles. We’re confident you’ll find that CalSouthern’s online PsyD degree program is an excellent choice and well-suited for a variety of educational and career goals.

    California Lemon Law Attorneys and Lawyers #california #lemon #law #attorneys, #lemon


    #

    As a California resident. you have rights under our California lemon law .

    Under the California lemon law you have the right to a repurchase of your vehicle proven to be a “lemon” under the state statute.

    Under the California lemon law you have the right to receive a refund based upon the original acquisition price of the vehicle, less a charge for usage based upon the odometer miles at the first of what became repeated repair attempts.

    Under the California lemon law you have the right to the attorney�s fees and costs being billed to the automobile manufacturer, not you.

    Under the California lemon law you have the right to ask for a new replacement vehicle for your defective new vehicle, if both you and the manufacturer agree upon it.

    Under the California lemon law you have the right to hire our law firm with no out-of-pocket expenses.

    Under the California lemon law you have the right to keep your vehicle and pay us nothing if we do not reach settlement on your case.

    California residents who purchased their new or used car, SUV, truck, van, cross-over, or motorhome with a manufacturer’s warranty have lemon law rights when their purchase (or lease) has been subject to too many repeated warranty repairs. In fact, the California lemon law is one of the strongest lemon laws in the nation.

    California lemon law relief for all California residents. Your lemon law rights are all within the California lemon law statute, which is located on this website. The California lemon law (Song-Beverly Consumer Warranty Act, and the Tanner Consumer Protection Act / California Civil Code Section 1793.2, 1793.22) was enacted to protect California consumers from having to deal with repeated repair visits back to the dealership for factory warranty repairs.

    Has your new or used vehicle been in the shop over and over again for dealer warranty repairs? You may have a California lemon law claim and case that will allow you to return the vehicle under the California state lemon law statute for a buyback and get a refund of all the monies and payments you have made, as well as a payoff of any loan or lease balance. California lemon law cases can also settle with the manufacturer replacing the offending new lemon vehicle with a new, current year model of your choice of the same MSRP price. In some cases we can negotiate with the manufacturer to allow you to keep your vehicle (if you desire to) and receive a payment in the thousands of dollars for the inconvenience you have encountered with all the past repair visits.

    Any new or used vehicle that has remaining factory warranty coverage, or manufacturer “Certified Pre-Owned” used car warranty coverage may be a candidate for consumer protection under the California lemon law.

    Consumer information on lemon law warranty repair attempts: To protect your legal rights for a potential California lemon law claim/case, we suggest the following. When visiting your authorized dealer for repairs to your vehicle under the manufacturer�s warranty, be sure that the wording on the Repair Order of your complaint are your words of your description of the problem/symptom, not the Service Advisors interpretation of what you are saying. Equally important for a California lemon law claim/case is that when the vehicle goes back for a “repeat of same problem/symptom”, that you keep the customer complaint wording consistent on each Repair Order in sequence. This adds strength to your California lemon law case. Mentioning possible action under the California lemon law to the Service Advisor is not recommended. Discussing your vehicle being a “lemon” will almost certainly “flag” your vehicle, and more than likely it would come back after a repair with “could not duplicate customers concern”. Manufacturers are very savvy on lemon law issues – and so are their dealers. After all, they have trained them.

    If you are missing any Repair Order invoices, you can request copies of them from your Service Advisor. The Service Advisor can also print out what is known as a “warranty repair history printout”, which details all repair visits to any/all authorized dealers for warranty repairs. Again, it is best not to mention “lemon law” to the Service Advisor as you will likely not get the copies of the documents you are requesting. A California lemon law case and claim are predicated upon Repair Order Invoices. These are the proof of your claim and repair attempts. Keep them in a safe place, away from your vehicle.

    Important lemon law rights notice to consumers with vehicles with recently expired factory warranties: If your vehicle is outside of the factory “bumper-to-bumper” or “powertrain” warranty, you may still be eligible for relief under the California lemon law. If you have had four (4) or more repair attempt visits at an authorized dealership for the same issue/problem/complaint before expiration of factory warranty coverage, and have repair order invoice documents that support this (or you get a warranty repair history printout from your dealer), you may be eligible for a substantial cash settlement under the lemon law. If you gave the automobile manufacturer written or verbal notice (telephoned in to Customer Assistance Center) of the continued warranty non-conformity issues during the warranty coverage period and continue to have the same issue/problem/complaint, you may potentially entitled to a repurchase (buyback) of your vehicle, even though it is out of factory warranty. We invite you to call us to discuss your out-of-warranty vehicle’s problems and warranty repairs history. The same applies to “Certified Pre-Owned Warranty” used vehicles, which enjoy the same lemon law protection as new vehicles.

    The California lemon law also requires that the automobile manufacturer pay for the consumer’s hourly attorney’s fees on a case and claim that settles for a repurchase (buyback), new replacement vehicle, or a cash settlement payment. This makes the lemon law economically feasible for consumers who would not otherwise be in a position to hire a lemon law attorney.

    Dealing with a driving under the influence charge in California is not easy. Even first time offenders don’t get off very easily and are hit with severe penalties. The most difficult aspect about incurring a DUI in the state is that DWI laws can vary greatly from city to city. However, California as a whole is tightening the reins on DWI punishments.

    As of this year, motorists will have larger penalties when it comes to driver’s license suspension and revocation. The state also has employed a “no tolerance” policy for anyone who is caught driving under the influence under the age of 18 and for repeat drunk driving offenders. If you have incurred a DUI in California, the best thing to do would be to hire an elite team of Los Angeles DUI lawyers to help you fight your charges, and we are here to ensure you partner up with your ideal paralegal.

    General Laws in California

    The state of California has very strict penalties for DUI offenders that are minors, offenders under 21 years of age and for repeat offenders. Laws in California state that a motorist may be charged with driving under the influence (DUI) if any of the following circumstances are present:

    • If you are under the age of 21 and are operating a vehicle after consuming alcoholic beverages. Persons under 21 may not have any alcoholic substances in their vehicle when driving alone. (Exceptions may be made for work-related driving).
    • If you are under the age of 21 and your BAC level is .01 percent or higher.
    • If you are under the age of 21 and are driving after having consumed alcohol in any form. This includes prescription drugs and over the counter medications.
    • If you are over the age of 21 and your BAC level is .08 percent or higher.
    • If you are a commercial driver with a BAC level of .04 percent or higher
    • If you are under the age of 18 and have ANY measurable blood alcohol concentration.
    • If you are a repeat offender and your BAC level is at .01 percent or higher.

    How DUI Offenders are Penalized in California

    If you have incurred a DUI in California and are found guilty, the following are the punishments that you may be issued:

    1st Conviction

    • Imprisonment from 96 hours to 6 months
    • Fines from $1,000 to $1,600
    • Driver’s license suspension for 6 months
    • Mandatory completion of DUI Program
    • Possible court order to install ignition interlock device
    • California SR-22 Insurance required for restricted license

    2nd Conviction

    • Imprisonment from 90 days to 1 year
    • Fines from $1,000 to $1,900
    • Driver’s license suspension for 2 years
    • Mandatory completion of DUI Program
    • May be eligible to apply for interlock ignition device (IDD) restricted driving
    • California SR-22 Certificate required for restricted license

    • Mandatory installation of ignition interlock device
    • May apply for restricted driver’s license after 1 year
    • California SR-22 Certificate required for restricted license

    Repeat Offenders

    California has a zero tolerance police for repeat DUI offenders. As such, the maximum possible penalty for driving under the influence may be issued to motorists who are convicted. Repeat Los Angeles DUI offenders may be denied application for a restricted license as well. The state of California takes all previous charges into account when issuing penalties for a new one. This may lead to a motorist being charged with a misdemeanor or felony DWI. All repeat DUI punishments are also affected by where the driver was issued the charge as well as the driver’s BAC level at the time of arrest.

    Recent Amendments to California DUI Laws

    As of 2011, California DWI laws have expanded the number of categories by which the Department of Motor Vehicle (DMV) can immediately suspend driving privileges when the motorist is suspected of driving under the influence.

    As of 2010, California law requires the mandatory installation of ignition interlock devices. The state also shortened the time period in which driving penalties are restricted, including those for repeat offenders. In order for the penalty period to be shortened, motorists must pay all required fees and file an SR-22 insurance form.

    California Assembly Bill 91 – Requires that ignition interlock device manufacturers provide information to the Department of Motor Vehicles. Also requires the DMV to establish a pilot program in Alameda, Los Angeles, Sacramento and Tulare that requires a driver to install an interlock ignition device and to participate in alcohol and drug assessment programs.

    California Assembly Bill 1165 (Zero Tolerance Law For Repeat Offenders) – Makes it unlawful for a motorist under probation for a violation to operate a motor vehicle with a BAC level of .01 percent or higher.

    California Senate Bill 1190 (Ignition Interlock Devices) – Lowers the minimum BAC level at the time of arrest to allow a motorist to install an ignition interlock device on their vehicle as well as prohibits said motorist from operating the vehicle without the device.

    California Senate Bill 1388 (Interlock Devices) – Effective July 2009, requires motorists to install an ignition interlock device immediately on their vehicles following conviction of violating DUI provisions as well as driving under a suspended/revoked license due to DUI-related convictions. The number of violations will determine the time period in which the device must remain installed.

    California Assembly Bill 2802 (Reckless Driving) – Court must order DWI convict to participate in a program related to DUI education and treatment. Probation will be revoked if motorist does not enroll in the program.

    California SR-22 Insurance Click here for SR-22 Insurance

    If you have been convicted of drunk driving in California, you may be required to obtain a California SR-22 insurance policy. Also known as a California Proof of Insurance Certificate,” the SR-22 form is not a type of insurance, but a form of proof that you have certain types of insurance. It is filed by the driver’s insurance company to the state DMV stating that auto liability insurance is in effect for the motorist. It is typically required after a motorist has been charged with DWI, a number of other traffic offices, or an accident in Los Angeles, San Diego or San Francisco.

    In California, if your license is suspended you are allowed to obtain a restricted license by the court, for which an SR-22 form may be required. If your auto insurance is cancelled, you will need to file for a new insurance plan within 45 days.

    Seek Legal Help Immediately if You Were Charged with California DWI

    If you have been charged with DUI, time is of the essence to fight your charges. Since penalties in the state are so severe, you need a top drunk driving lawyer to help you contest your charges. We are here to provide you with connections to the best and most sought-after attorneys in California who will take on your case and ensure the best possible resolution for it.

Sadly, there are not enough cocaine rehabilitation treatments available in California to fight off the cocaine problem the population is encountering.

    Methamphetamine is mostly manufactured in meth labs that can be found anywhere from motel rooms, apartments, vehicles, etc. There is a great amount of chemical waste that comes from the production of meth.

San Diego is a Californian city which serves as a transshipment point for a lot of the meth that comes from Mexico.

    California Domestic Violence Law

    Overview of California Domestic Violence Law

    California’s domestic violence laws seek to prevent violence in familial or intimate relationships. The state identifies domestic violence when an individual commits a criminal act within one of the types of relationships specified by the California Penal Code: spouse or former spouse; cohabitant or former cohabitant in a home; a parent with whom the individual has a child; or a partner in a dating relationship. Domestic violence often occurs in tandem with child abuse .

    When a prosecutor charges a defendant with a crime based on domestic violence, several sections of the Penal Code may apply. A prosecutor can choose which criminal charges to pursue based on the severity of the conduct and harm to the victim, along with other circumstances of the case.

    In Section 242, the Penal Code defines battery as a willful and unlawful use of force or violence against the person of another. Section 243(e)(1) of the Penal Code criminalizes battery within one of the specified familial or intimate relationships. Alternatively, a prosecutor can choose to charge the defendant with battery under Section 243(d) if the defendant inflicted serious bodily injury on the victim. Battery under Section 243(d) reflects a greater degree of harm suffered by the victim of domestic violence.

    The Penal Code also criminalizes domestic violence under Section 273.5 when an individual’s willful conduct leads to a corporal injury resulting in a traumatic condition suffered by a person with whom the individual has one of the familial or intimate relationships specified by the domestic violence laws of California.

    California state laws allow victims of domestic violence to apply for emergency protective orders and restraining orders in both civil and criminal court. Issuance of a protective order or restraining order does not necessarily depend on physical harm suffered by the victim — someone who fears imminent harm or who has suffered emotional abuse may still qualify for protection through the California legal system.

    California Domestic Violence Laws in Brief

    Below you will find key provisions of California’s domestic violence laws.

    California Penal Code Sections 240-248 et. seq. (Domestic Violence)

    California Penal Code Sections 270-273.75 et. seq. (Domestic Violence)

    • A conviction for battery under Section 243(e)(1) can lead to a fine of up to $2,000, imprisonment in county jail for a term of up to one year, or both; alternatively, the state can also agree to a sentence of probation and participation in batterer’s counseling services.
    • A conviction under Section 243(d) can result in a sentence of imprisonment lasting up to one year in county jail or two to four years in state prison and a restraining order.
    • A felony conviction under Section 273.5 may result in a sentence of imprisonment lasting for up to one year in county jail or two to four years in state prison, a fine of up to $6,000, or both imprisonment and a fine.

    Note: The prosecutor can pursue increased, additional penalties if the state previously convicted the defendant of domestic violence under the same code section.

    Self-defense via a mutual combat situation with your intimate partner

    California Penal Code Section 422 (Criminal Threats)

    California Penal Code Section 591 (Damaging a Telephone Line)

    Note:State laws are always subject to change through the passage of new legislation, rulings in the higher courts (including federal decisions), ballot initiatives, and other means. While we strive to provide the most current information available, please consult an attorney or conduct your own legal research to verify the state law(s) you are researching.

    California here I come, right back where I started from, one hearty movie musical march goes. Just one of many toe-tapping songs throughout the history of the this golden land, starting with a prospector from Alabama, with a banjo on his knee. Another minor miner favorite that came from the theme song on a BxW TV show went something as, Oh, I have traveled here, and traveled there, but here is where I am today, in sunny Cali-for-nia. A more modern theme focused on the vivid colors of a swirling abstract patterns of California Dreaming.

    That was then. Today the lyrics probably should be since the state is so close to bankruptcy as to be issuing warrants, instead of checks that had not be honored by unregulated national bank CEO s that created the financial crisis in the first place Don t cry for me California, We always loved you! That is if the laid-back hippie kooks of America, will still bow down to the big brother control of the monopoly of New York TV news broadcasting, and the network owners partners in crime AKA with Wall Street.

    If you think I am a bit paranoid in my simpatico assessment, then consider the triple whammy sequence of events that has brought California often described to be the world s 10th largest economy to it s knees.

    It started with brownouts for big cities of California with the PAC supported energy connection of Exxon making money for New York accountants by creating an artificial shortage of de-regulated electricity through flipping the price at the plug.

    Follow this with local, safe, working, Savings and Loan money for mortgages, being hostilely taken over by the New York big five sub-prime mortgage derivative money sources, that led to a housing bubble that has only benefited a privileged few.

    The lightening bolt in this perfect storm for already stressed suburban commuters was multinational big oil, flipping the price at the pump, in part by blocking the state as proved during the last election by environmentalists blocking the free enterprise competition of clean burning natural gas from Alaska from drilling offshore oil fields owned by California taxpayers.

    I say, turn off a dependence on know-nothing disinformation of flapping lip TV political commentators, and witty New York Times columnists, for truthful California travel information. Let s help bail out California the homeland of disposed homeless families by visiting what truthfully could be a vacation of a lifetime. Perhaps you may stumble across an independent (i.e. creative) Central Valley film as literature production of California farmers reprising the Grapes of Wrath II, or a California gold mining operation surviving British Barclay Banks paper certificate manipulation of silver and gold proving, once again, that true wealth of California is either grown, or mined.

    Unfortunately the LA Chamber of Commerce can t supply a steady influx of tourist traffic memorials to murdered pop music stars, or new graves in old movie star cemeteries, to justify the expense of gasoline and airfare to visit, La La Land .

    This is why I am recommending in the premier edition of California Travel Magazine (.com) to the majority of our readers from overseas who found us on the world wide web, the adventure of taking a exit from a pothole decaying freeway system to blue highways (the state routes as shown on highway road maps) to tour what is actually an incredibly beautiful and exciting state of mind.

    Jury awards $5M to man wrongfully accused of indecent contact

    A jury awarded $5 million to a man who was wrongfully arrested for indecent contact with a minor over the internet. In 2011, a man was arrested in front of his home. He was accused of performing sex acts on himself while using a Facebook account to contact a 12-year-old Sacramento girl and asking her to undress in front of a webcam. The accused man was ultimately found to have not committed the crimes, to have never been on Facebook, and to have never had a Facebook account on his computer. The plaintiff claimed Detective Heather Hendrickson was reckless in her preparation of the arrest and search warrant affidavits, causing her to mislead the magistrate that issued the warrants. Defense claimed Hendrickson was not reckless in her conduct.

    United States District Court, Central District, Los Angeles

    Jury finds passenger was unbelted at time of crash

    A jury found a driver and the manufacturers of a seat belt were not to blame for a passenger’s head injury and paralysis. In 2012, Terry Herbert, then 58, was a passenger in a Ford Fusion driven by Sylvia Caceres when it was involved in a rollover crash. Herbert suffered a traumatic brain injury and was rendered a paraplegic when she was ejected from the car. Herbert claimed that Caceres failed to maintain proper control of the car and that the seat belt’s buckle was defectively designed, causing it to unlatch during the crash. Caceres claimed another vehicle caused her to take evasive action, and Ford Motor Co. and the manufacturers of the Takata AB buckle claimed Herbert was not wearing her seat belt at the time of the crash.

    Driver found not to blame for pedestrian’s alleged injuries

    A jury found the driver of a reversing vehicle in a parking lot was not to blame for a pedestrian’s alleged injuries. On Feb. 7, 2013, Peter Ly, then 35, was in a parking lot inspecting damage on a vehicle when his right shoulder was allegedly struck. He claimed the vehicle he was inspecting was struck by Paul Fleming’s vehicle as it was backing into a parking spot. Ly claimed his shoulder was subsequently struck, resulting in a superior labral tear. Fleming claimed that he back into the spot at idle speed and bumped the parked vehicle, but that he didn’t see Ly until he returned with the property owner. Defense counsel argued that Fleming acted reasonably and that Ly was not behind the vehicle at the time of the accident. Defense also claimed Ly was not injured.

    Drug Rehabilitation Program

    A Drug-Free Solution from Narconon

    It is possible to recover from drug and alcohol addiction

    The Narconon drug rehab program steps are entirely drug-free; that is, our drug rehabilitation program does not use drugs or medications to solve the problems caused by drugs, but does use nutrition and nutritional supplements as an important component of its delivery. Thus the Narconon program is a social education life skills model of rehabilitation.

    Find out more about the Narconon drug rehab :

    Persons enrolling in the program must receive full medical physicals, an M.D.’s permission to do the program and periodic medical review as individually needed. However, Narconon clients are not considered or treated as “patients” but as “students” who are learning to regain control of their lives. This is an important distinction. A Narconon student does not enroll to recover from an “illness”; he enrolls to learn something that he doesn’t already know. He addresses the disability caused by drug use with new abilities, new skills for life.

    Narconon staff prepare graduating students with “re-entry” programs to follow as they re-start their lives on a new footing. But the full Narconon drug rehabilitation program is intended to produce graduates who can stand on their own feet and live drug-free. ethical lives thereafter. A Narconon graduate does not go to weekly meetings for months after completion, nor does he describe himself as “recovering.”

    A student who has graduated from the Narconon program has obtained a new orientation in life. The premise of the Narconon model is that a former addict can learn to take personal responsibility for his life and become again an ethical, contributing member of society. This goal applies (and is routinely achieved) whether the program is delivered in a free-standing center, daily after work, or even in prison.

    Once well, if he uses the tools he has practiced and learned to use at a Narconon center, a Narconon graduate can stay well. This is not theoretical. There are four decades of graduates who will swear by it.

    If graduates do run into serious difficulties, they return to their Narconon center where they inevitably find a specific part of the program that they earlier failed to fully understand and therefore could not apply in the travails of daily life. But the majority get it the first time through.

    The Narconon program takes four to six months. During this time, some might consider the Narconon program a “therapeutic community,” but it would be more appropriate to say that Narconon students are going “back to school”–this time to get real tools for real life.

    “The addict has been found not to want to be an addict, but is driven by pain and environmental hopelessness…. As soon as an addict can feel healthier and more competent mentally and physically without drugs than he does on drugs, he ceases to require drugs.”

    A Narconon Program Graduate is someone

    • Who has completed the Narconon drug rehabilitation program;
    • Who knows he is, in fact, capable of living a drug-free life thereafter;
    • Who has improved his or her ability to learn and thus can accept new ideas on how to change life for the better;
    • Who has personally absorbed the fundamentals of ethics and morality well enough that he or she can be productive and contributive to society and will have no further troubles with the justice system;
    • Who knows how to solve the problems of life in a rational manner to the best of his ability, without the use of mind-altering drugs .

    Each Narconon program graduate is expected, no matter the severity of his or her earlier life experience, to achieve and to live a stably drug-free, ethical life, one for one.

    There is no such thing as a “victim” in the Narconon program way of thinking. Even if life has dealt one a bad hand of cards, the road out is through personal recognition of responsibility for one’s own condition.

    Is a cheat? California Forum #volunteer #travel

    hoteltravel.com is a cheat?

    Has anyone ever book a room with hoteltravel.com?

    I can only relate my experience regarding these third-party online agencies. I booked a room for 2 nights at a hotel. While we was there, I was using the computer in the lobby, and I overheard the front desk clerk answer a call, and quote a room rate that was identical to the room rate I had paid through the third-party agencies. So I do not believe it is necessarily true that you are going to save money using an agency.

    We had to go home 1 day sooner than we expected due to illness. The manager of the hotel (Best Western Fresno Inn at 480 E. Shaw in Fresno ) was extremely nice to us, and said he gladly would not have charged us for the night we didn t stay – but, as we had booked through an online agency rather than directly with the hotel, he had no control over the money.

    They said this was true for any third-party bookings, such as if we had used priceline or expedia or whatever. They could not even tell us how much they would bill the agency for the night we did stay there, which I thought was strange. Another strange thing that happened was when we checked in, they had my correct name, but an incorrect address for our home address, 2000 miles away from where we live, and they had a credit card number which did not match any card I have ever had. Apparently communication between hotels and these agencies is very poor.

    The agency we used would not make an adjustment and we lost the money we had paid for the second night. I came away from this episode much more wary of using any online third-party agency to book a hotel. Not only is the agency inflexible and getting an adjustment or refund of your bill is difficult or impossible, but communication of the correct data between the agency and the hotel is not very reliable.

    We had not used the agency you are asking about, hoteltravel.com, we had used hotelstravel.com. But I think the principles apply to any third-party booking agency. And I now believe you may not even save any money by using agencies, since I heard the front desk quote a price on the phone that was exactly the same as what we paid to an agency.

    If you do use one of these agencies or aggregators, before you commit the money to them, make sure you understand their cancellation or adjustment policies (especially how long before or after your trip you can ask for an adjustment) and the exact procedure you must use to request an adjustment. I wouldn t go so far as to call these agencies a scam, but the fact that they they have control of your payment, instead of the actual provider of the service having control of the payment, is in my mind a big disadvantage for you.

    My advice is to just call the front desk of the hotel directly and book directly with the hotel. They are more flexible and they might be willing to give you a rate that would match the agency price anyway, since they would not have to pay a commission to the agency.

    Drug Rehab and Pregnancy #northern #california #drug #rehab

    Drug Rehab and Pregnancy

    The rates of alcohol use, abuse and addiction among women who are pregnant is of critical concern due to the irreparable harm that can be done to the unborn child if the mother drinks while pregnant. A 2002 report estimated that around 4 percent of women who sought treatment for alcohol related problems admitted to drinking while they were pregnant. Additionally, women who used alcohol when pregnant were also much more likely to use other illegal drugs, such as marijuana, cocaine and heroin.

    If you or someone you love is suffering from alcohol addiction and is pregnant, call Orchid Recovery Center. We can help you break your addiction so that both you and your unborn child will be healthier.

    The Need for Drug Rehab Among Pregnant Women

    In national surveys conducted in 2002 and 2003, 10 percent of the women who replied said that they abused alcohol, while another 5 percent reported that they had used alcohol on a binge or heavy basis in the month prior to the survey. A second survey estimated that between 3 percent and 10 percent of pregnant women used alcohol at some point during their pregnancy, and that the rates were higher among women who were older, non Hispanic, more educated and more wealthy. Clearly, there is a real problem with alcohol abuse and misuse in women who are pregnant. Other studies have shown that there is a link between alcohol abuse and other drug abuse and addiction, so if a woman is pregnant and drinking, then there is a greater risk that she will develop some type of drug addiction as well.

    Pregnant Women and Drug Rehab: Barriers to Getting Treatment

    Studies have shown that women who are pregnant and abusing drugs or alcohol will tend to avoid seeking treatment because they fear repercussions that may take place against them or their children. They feel that if they seek drug treatment. their children may be taken away or that they may be prosecuted for child abuse. This fear is not without substance, as there have been high-profile cases in the media where drug or alcohol-addicted women have faced litigation and had their children taken away once it was discovered that they had drug or alcohol problems. Additionally, state laws in 14 different states make it a child abuse crime to take drugs or alcohol while pregnant, and nine states require that healthcare officials report any suspected substance abuse by pregnant women.

    When women seek treatment, they are much more likely than their male counterparts to be caring for their children or to have children living at home, and they are also more likely to care more about their children than a male in the same situation would. This feeling of responsibility and protection for their child or children is one of the biggest barriers facing women who are in need of substance abuse treatment. Many drug or alcohol treatment centers do not offer any child care services for women who enroll in their programs, which limits how often a woman can attend treatments.

    Drug Rehab for Pregnant Women at Orchid Recovery Center

    At Orchid Recovery Center, we offer alcohol and drug rehab and treatment in a setting that is welcoming and inviting to women and their children. We have both treatment services and childcare options available for our patients, and provide the highest level of service in both areas. If you would like to learn more about the services we provide pregnant women who are suffering from drug addiction and abuse, contact us at Orchid Recovery Center today.
