Get Your Smile Back With Dental Care In Heber Springs

byAlma Abell

When a person is able to smile with confidence, it says that they not only enjoy life but want to make the most of it. This is of great importance when meeting people for the first time or when trying to impress new acquaintances in a social situation. For those people who feel they cannot smile because of bad teeth or general neglect of their oral health, Dental Care in Heber Springs will literally change their lives.

Advances in dentistry over the past decade have made it possible to change the appearance of a person in as little as just a few dental appointments. The process usually begins with an initial appointment for an examination with the doctor and a set of new x-rays. These x-rays usually involve all of the teeth in the mouth, including a panoramic view of a person’s bite and profile.

At that time, Dental Care in Heber Springs proceeds with a cleaning performed by a dental hygienist in the office. While most people make a daily effort to brush their teeth, a professional cleaning is able to remove far more plaque in a shorter amount of time. Should the dental hygienist see that the patient is not practicing proper brushing habits, time will also be spent teaching them how best to take care of their hygienic needs at home.

The consultation with the dentist will include a talk about basic dentistry treatments that need to be performed where there are cavities or teeth that need removal. Cosmetic dental procedures that may be of great assistance will be discussed, but performed at a later date. At all times, the comfort of the patient will be taken into consideration. For some patients, this means several procedures can be performed in one sitting while other patients may rather come back several times.

In all situations, patients know that they can trust Jason T Bolding DDS and his dedicated staff. Along with their training, their compassion is something patients count on. When patients are not able to afford their dental treatments, they know that they can speak to the staff about financing arrangements with complete privacy and confidentiality.

Florida declares ‘state of emergency’, Hurricane Dennis category 4 storm

Friday, July 8, 2005

Florida braces for the arrival of Hurricane Dennis as governor Jeb Bush announced a state of emergency on a televised press conference Friday afternoon at 2:00 EST. Dennis weakened slightly after making landfall in Cuba and now packs sustained winds of 145 miles per hour. Thousands have fled the Florida Keys under a mandatory evacuation order where the storm is expected to strike sometime this evening.

The storm wobbled slightly after arriving in Cuba where it claimed up to three lives. Ham radio operators reported that most power lines are down in the province of Cienfuegos, where a major seaport is located on Cuba’s southern coast.

According to Reuters, 18 lives were claimed by the storm in Haiti yesterday when it passed over that island nation.

The storm is expected to continue on a north-westerly path that will brush the southern tip of Florida and head up the state’s Gulf of Mexico coastline, where warm gulf waters could fuel the storm and raise it to a Category 5 storm.

Speculation has begun on the possibility of higher gas prices as gulf oil refineries are threatened.

Hurricane Dennis comes quickly on the heels of 3-day ago Tropical Storm Cindy, in what is noted as record storm activity for this early in the hurricane season.

CEO of GM outlines plan for “New GM” after auto company declared bankruptcy

CEO of GM outlines plan for “New GM” after auto company declared bankruptcy

Thursday, June 4, 2009

In a New York press conference at 16:15 UTC, June 1st, Fritz Henderson, the Chief Executive Officer of General Motors, which filed for bankruptcy and Chapter 11 protection from its creditors earlier today, outlined a plan for what he called a “New GM”.

Speaking to the press under safe harbor provisions of U.S. law, Henderson described the events of today as a “defining moment” in the history of General Motors. Speaking to the public he said that “The GM that let you down is history,” and described a “New GM” that he expected to result from the bankruptcy process.

Henderson stated that he envisioned the bankruptcy process would take between 60 and 90 days. He stressed several times his view that the process would be one that is executed quickly, saying that not just a sense of urgency but “pure unadulterated speed” was his expectation of the process. He emphasized that “GM remains open for business” during the bankruptcy period, continuing to sell and to support its products, and that day one motions had been filed in the bankruptcy court in order to allow this.

Regarding the bankruptcy process he said, “We will do it right. And we will do it once.”

He stated that the plan for General Motors had the support of the United Auto Workers union, the Canadian Auto Workers union, the GM VEBA, and a majority of the unsecured bondholders of GM. He also mentioned that GM had already received €1.5 million in bridge financing from the German government.

In response to questions about the possibility of the United States federal government, a majority shareholder in the restructured company, dictating future product development and strategy, such as the sale of more fuel-efficient and green vehicles; he first observed that the federal government had already stated to him that it had “no real interest in running our business” and that he expected that still to be his job. Of the specific hypothetical scenario where the management of GM wants to make one type of car, because it thinks that it is the right thing for the business, and the U.S. government wants to make another type of car, he stated that “I don’t think it’s going to happen.” Expanding on that point he stated that he expected the “New GM” to focus upon “highly fuel-efficient and green technology”, and that operating both in accordance with U.S. environmental laws and in response to customer demand would naturally result in the New GM producing the types of vehicles that the U.S. government would encourage.

The “New GM” he also expected to focus on “four core brands”, and will size its dealership to match that. He stated that GM would offer a “deferred termination” package to dealers, to allow them to cease dealing in GM vehicles in a managed and gradual way.

He stated that the bankruptcy filings did not cover General Motors’ businesses in Latin America, Europe and the Middle East, and Asia and the Pacific. Of GM’s profitable ventures in China, specifically, he stated that they were “a critical part of the New GM”. In response to questions of whether the New GM would import cars from China to the U.S., he stated the formative company’s core principle that “We build where we sell” applied in both directions, with GM building in China to sell in China and building in the U.S. to sell in the U.S., stating that this shortened supply chains.

He declined to predict when the New GM would return to profitability, stating that the goal was rather to lower the break-even EBIT point for the company. He also declined to speculate upon when the U.S. government would sell its stake in the company, saying that that was a question “better addressed to the U.S. Treasury”, and merely saying that he expected it to be “years, not months” when the U.S. Treasury felt it would give “the right return for taxpayers.”

Despite passage of bailout bill, two US states may need loans

Despite passage of bailout bill, two US states may need loans

Sunday, October 5, 2008

Despite the passage of a 700 billion USD bill by the United States House of Representatives on Friday and the Senate on Wednesday, two U.S. states may need loans totaling over 14 billion dollars.

California and Massachusetts are seeking at least 7 billion dollars each from the federal government as loans. Officials and lawmakers in both states say that the loans would be temporary.

According to Massachusetts’ state treasurer, Timothy P. Cahill, the state was unable to borrow money last week on a short term loan. He also states that the state can afford to pay its bills and debts for the next few weeks, but not beyond that without a short-term loan from the government. Cahill has asked the federal government for a loan similar to the recent one passed by Congress and the Senate.

“That’s all we would ask them to do: Treat us like the investment banks,” said Cahill to the Associated Press.

Officials in California say they need an emergency loan, or they will run out of money by the end of October. California’s governor, Arnold Schwarzenegger said the state is “not out of the woods” and needs a short term loan from the government.

“California and other states may be unable to obtain the necessary level of financing to maintain government operations and may be forced to turn to the federal treasury for short-term financing,” said Schwarzenegger in a letter to the Treasury Department, which is taking the letter under consideration.

On Friday, the U.S. House of Representative voted to pass a revised bailout bill which included raising the FDIC insurance cap to $250,000, a move designed to please progressives. However, the $110 billion in tax breaks, earmarks and what has been called pork barrel spending is not offset by any increases in revenues and has added opposition to the bill from some Representatives in the House. Earmarks added into the bailout bill included $192 million in tax rebates for the Virgin Islands rum industry, $148 million in tax cuts for the wool industry, $100 million tax cuts to the auto racing industry, and $48 million in Hollywood tax incentives, among others.

Abogados In Phoenix Can Help Mothers Recover After Birth Injuries

byAlma Abell

The birth of a baby is a joyous occasion, but many things can go wrong before the child is born – and a significant number of these injuries are the result of medical malpractice. This type of situation occurs when a doctor makes a mistake beyond what the average, competent physician would do in the same circumstances. In some areas, mothers can recover for emotional distress due to a stillbirth or miscarriage. Here, you can learn what to expect from a doctor during your pregnancy.

The First Trimester

During the first three months of pregnancy, doctors are supposed to check your medical history, identifying risk factors such as diabetes, previous miscarriages, STDs, alcohol and drug use and hereditary diseases. It is the doctor’s job to assess these risks and take the appropriate precautions. For instance, doctors must recommend that women take prenatal vitamins containing folic acid, which assists in spinal cord and brain development. Failure to do so can cause birth defects, leading to a possible malpractice suit.

The Second Trimester

Early in this phase, the gynecologist is responsible for ultrasound testing, determining the baby’s growth rate and checking its organs and extremities. If there are defects at birth that should have been noticed sooner, parents and Abogados Phoenix may be able to bring a malpractice case against the doctor.

The Third Trimester

During the final three months of pregnancy, the doctor should assess the fetus’ size to determine the safety of a vaginal birth. The fetus’ heart and other organs should be monitored for signs of distress, which can be caused by lack of oxygen, blood acidity and a variety of other factors.

Birth

Most birth injuries occur due to prenatal malpractice, but delivery decisions can endanger a child’s life. If the baby is positioned abnormally, the doctor’s failure to do a timely C-section can be harmful or fatal. Giving the mother too much pain medicine can keep her body from releasing the right type and amount of hormones to prevent injuries during birth.

How can an Attorney Help in These Cases?

Robert Ramirez Law can help you get compensation for pain and suffering as well as medical expenses. If you or your baby has suffered an injury, call Abogados Phoenix to learn more about your legal rights. Every state has a deadline for bringing a malpractice claim. File yours as soon as possible to maximize your recovery.

NY Sen. Monserrate found guilty of misdemeanor assault

NY Sen. Monserrate found guilty of misdemeanor assault

Friday, October 16, 2009

New York State Senator Hiram Monserrate was found guilty of misdemeanor assault Thursday, in the criminal trial involving an alleged attack on his girlfriend Karla Giraldo. Monserrate will face sentencing on the misdemeanor assault conviction on December 4.

Monserrate had also faced charges of felony assault, but he was not convicted of these charges. The misdemeanor assault conviction means Monserrate is guilty of “recklessly causing physical injury” to Giraldo. Monserrate could be sentenced to one year in jail for the misdemeanor assault conviction.

The prosecution had asserted that when Monserrate discovered that his girlfriend had the business card of another man, he chose to strike out at her. Monserrate entered a plea of not guilty to charges he sliced his girlfriend’s face with broken glass during a conflict at their apartment on December 19, 2008. The defense team denied that the injury to the woman by Monserrate was intentional, instead claiming that the incident was “an accident” and the result of Monserrate tripping while bringing Giraldo a glass of water.

A police detective that first investigated the crime scene testified about the bloody evidence discovered at Monserrate’s apartment, including broken glass, blood, towels covered in blood, and a ripped women’s t-shirt. Forensic biologist Ewilina Badja said that the majority of the blood found at the crime scene had originated from one woman. Prosecutors asserted that this woman is Giraldo, who was treated for injuries surrounding her left eye that took approximately 40 stitches to remedy. Badja identified blood on a male green shirt found in the bathroom sink as that of Monserrate.

An emergency physician that had treated Giraldo stated in court that Monserrate’s girlfriend asserted to her that her injuries were not the result of an accident. Though the defense has argued that Giraldo, who is from Ecuador, may have been difficult to understand – the physician stated she conversed with Monserrate’s girlfriend in both Spanish and in English.

Whether or not the public is going to stand for somebody who has been convicted of a criminal act…

Queens Supreme Court Justice William Erlbaum judged the case without a jury, as Monserrate waived his right for a trial before his peers. The group National Organization for Women had requested that the judge rule Monserrate should be given “the maximum sentence allowable by law”. If he had been convicted of a felony, Democrat Sen. Monserrate could have automatically lost his New York State Senate seat. Monserrate did not testify during the criminal trial against him.

There are no winners here today.

WXXI reported that Patricia Salkin of the Government Law Center at Albany Law School, said state Senators may be faced with political issues if they do not do something about Monserrate’s continued presence as a Senator. Salkin stated that the issue was: “Whether or not the public is going to stand for somebody who has been convicted of a criminal act, and act of domestic violence in this case, to be allowed to continue.” According to WXXI, Senate rules do not state that a misdemeanor conviction means a politician must be removed from office, it is within the power of the New York Senate to initiate procedures to oust a sitting Senator. WXXI reported that leaders within the Democratic party in the New York Senate were debating whether to being proceedings to remove Monserrate from his seat. WNYC reported that the Senators are deciding whether or not to initiate disciplinary proceedings against Monserrate.

There is no room in government or in the Democratic Party for people who commit such heinous crimes against women. Hiram Monserrate must be swiftly removed from office.

The New York Daily News reported that Monserrate gave a statement outside the courthouse after the ruling, and continued to describe the injury to Giraldo’s face as a “terrible accident”. He referred to Giraldo as “”a person who I love”. Monserrate stated that: “I have to live with that forever. There are no winners here today.” Monserrate’s attorney, Joseph Tacopina, believed that his client would not serve any jail time. “On a reckless misdemeanor, first offense, he won’t go to jail,” said Tacopina.

New York City Council member Eric Gioia was the first Democratic politician to publicly request that Monserrate resign from his post as a member of the New York State Senate. Gioia released a statement which said: “There is no room in government or in the Democratic Party for people who commit such heinous crimes against women. Hiram Monserrate must be swiftly removed from office. Elected officials should rightfully be held to a higher standard, and New Yorkers deserve better representation than a convicted perpetrator of domestic violence.” Gioia stated that “the circumstances revealed in the trial … truly shock the conscience.”

Monserrate is a former New York City police officer. Prior to becoming a member of the New York State Senate, he was a city councilman. He became a member of the New York State Senate weeks after the alleged conflict with Giraldo, and was made chair of the committee overseeing consumer affairs. Along with Democrat Pedro Espada Jr., Monserrate started a shift in control of the Senate by aligning with the Republican Party. Monserrate is currently allied with the Democrats in the New York Senate, and if he is removed from his seat the ratio of Democrats to Republicans would be 31-30.
