David S. Willig: New Florida Law Impacts International Family Cases

David S. Willig: New Florida Law Impacts International Family Cases

DAVID S. WILLIG, ESQ. – A new statute in Florida, coming into force from October 2014, is likely to impact international family cases to the extent they call for the application of foreign law. The foreign law angle is, perhaps, not so farfetched. We often hear about fellow Americans, some famous and some not so [...] …read more

Young Women & Business: Millennials in workforce, open grounds to closing the gender pay gap

Young Women & Business: Millennials in workforce, open grounds to closing the gender pay gap

Women in the technology industry are seeing an income that's in par with the men in their same industry. (photo by / Volkan Omez on Unsplash.com)

If you didn’t read my last week’s blog, allow me to summarize: Boulder may be in line to become the next, Silicon Valley-esque, tech-driven national economy. With that comparison comes a dangerous truth: Boulder could be facing what the technology giants in Santa Clara are experiencing themselves: massive gaps between men and women’s incomes. And without attention paid to this issue, Boulder could be following in these same footsteps.

Santa Clara’s pay gap is large and it is concerning when you begin to compare what Boulder could become due to this similar technology boom. Nevertheless, amid the wave of tech startups swelling downtown, there is a unique, location-specific combination of worker age and industry in play that could lend a helping hand towards keeping the colossal Santa Clara income gap scenario at bay.

According to a 2014 analysis of U.S. Census Bureau figures by NerdWallet, Boulder had the fifth-largest and fastest rise in gender pay gap among U.S. cities between 2007 and 2012, a 29 percent bloat in what men …read more

Sagrada Familia in Barcelona: Gaudi’s Unfinished Masterpiece

Sagrada Familia in Barcelona: Gaudi’s Unfinished Masterpiece

IMG_4672

Sagrada Familia, where to start? This astonishing piece of architectural perfection is Antonio Gaudi’s most prominent –yet still unfinished–project. I have lived in Barcelona for four months now, however I hadn’t actually gone inside Sagrada until last weekend. Within seconds of entering the church I was blown away. I couldn’t believe anything, a church for that matter, (which sadly become monotonous at times) could be so original, innovative and inspiring. The magnitude and the dimensions, the illumination and the uniqueness. This awe inspiring piece was something I had to write about without delay. It was so gratifying, so bright, so full of life, and it was unlike any church or building I had ever seen before. It was brilliant.

The Nativity Facade

The Passion Facade

The construction of Sagrada began in 1882. A year later, Gaudi became involved. Shortly after, this became Gaudi’s main project, changing the design considerably and instilling Gothic and Art Nouveau forms. He worked on it until his death in 1926 and since his passing, various architects have been brought in to carry out Gaudi’s original ideas and vision. With the completion of the spires Sagrada Familia will stand as the tallest church in the world.

How common are misdiagnoses?

How common are misdiagnoses?

One of the most common forms of diagnostic failure in Florida, and the United States in general, is the failure to diagnose a condition. The most common types of lawsuits for failing to diagnose or for a delayed diagnosis are for breast cancer, lung cancer, heart attack, appendicitis and colon cancer.

Although these are not the most commonly misdiagnosed conditions, they are the ones that usually cause the most harm the fastest. It is very common for doctors to misdiagnose hypertension and diabetes, but they do not lead to as many lawsuits because the harm from these conditions is not as severe nor does it manifest itself as quickly. These conditions also generally result in smaller awards from successful lawsuits.

The conditions most likely to not be diagnosed are Toxoplasmosis, an infection caused by a parasite, sleep disorders and Otosclerosis, a genetic ear bone disorder. There are believed to be millions of people in the United States who are unaware that they have these conditions. While the number of people who are unaware of having breast cancer is far lower, it is still a significant total.

If a medical condition is not diagnosed properly or a …read more

Decaf Drama

Decaf Drama

This past weekend, I was asked about decaf coffee coincidentally on two separate occasions. Decaf coffee is a healthy alternative for some, although it often means compromising on taste. Despite getting a lot of harsh criticism from hardcore coffee addicts and elite aficionados, decaf is an attractive alternative for those who like the essential flavor and aroma of coffee but want to avoid the physical effects of caffeine. In my tasting experience, decaf drip coffee and decaf espresso are always inferior to their caffeinated counterparts. Although I drink regular coffee, my recent conversations about decaf prompted me to learn more about the process of decaffeination.

Caffeine is an alkaloid or chemical compound found in certain plants including coffee. In coffee plants it works as a pesticide but for coffee drinkers it’s a stimulating drug. Caffeine quantity varies depending on bean variety, coffee processing, roasting methods, and brewing techniques. Decaffeinated coffee comes with a lot of drama attached to it. If you’re a decaf drinker, ignore the cultural stigma and focus on the actual decaffeinating process. It’s important for you to know how the caffeine was removed from your coffee because you …read more
