Quotes to Help You Run On

Running is no easy feat, especially if you’re new to the game. It’s hard for our muscles and even harder for our minds. However, once you get in the groove of it, and remind yourself that YOU CAN DO IT, things just go uphill from there (Not literally. Unless, of course, you want to). While there are many means of transportation (and a million ways to get there) some people prefer getting to their destinations by running versus learning how to ride a motorcycle, or attending a flight school. Here are some motivational quotes to think of when you need to get past those “I’m going to quit” moments:

  • “Running is the greatest metaphor for life, because you get out of it what you put into it.” – Oprah Winfrey
  • “Whether you believe you can or believe you can’t, you’re probably right.” – Henry Ford
  • “Anything is possible, but you have to believe and you have to fight.” – Lance Armstrong
  • “The secret of getting ahead is getting started. The secret of getting started is breaking your complex overwhelming tasks into small manageable tasks, and then starting on the first one.” – Mark Twain
  • “You must do the thing which you think you cannot do.” – Eleanor Roosevelt

Hopefully these quotes will help you through those tough times and push you forward to greatness in your running. Keep this in mind today, especially, in case you are pursued by zombies, witches, or werewolves!

How Financial Constraints Can affect Child Custody

Child custody and visitation laws differ from state to state, but the ability to financially support a child or children is one consideration that is sure to be a major factor in awarding custody. But because of the emotional component involved, child custody is one of the more ticklish issues in a divorce. In an ideal world, divorcing parents would agree on how to best serve the interests of the child or children by coming up with an agreement without letting ego, pride, self-interest or sheer orneriness coming into play. Unfortunately, that does not usually happen.

There is generally one parent who is the de facto primary caregiver and would be in the best position to have physical custody of the child or children, while the other parent is given visitation rights. In some instances, however, financial constraints can make it difficult for the primary caregiver to prove that having legal custody of the offspring is in their best interests. In these difficult times of high unemployment, many workers tolerate labor law violations such as unpaid overtime to avoid losing their jobs. Consequently, there is a significant reduction in income, which can make it difficult to make ends meet. If you believe you are a victim of unpaid overtime, contact an overtime lawyer today to discuss your options.

According to the website of the Law Offices of Baden V. Mansfield in Manhattan Beach, this can change the circumstances of the custodial parent and open the way for the non-custodial parent to seek custody. This is an issue that may not be easy to resolve, especially if there are other issues involved which bars the way to a mutually agreeable arrangement. A highly complex set of laws will have to be drawn upon in such situations, and that is no piece of cake. It would need the expertise and knowledge of a child custody and visitation rights lawyer practicing in the area to ensure that the rights of the client parent as well as the offspring is protected in light of financial constraints.

Personal Injury and Pharmaceutical Liability

It is no secret that drug companies make a bundle from their products, and in most cases that is acceptable. Drug companies in the US have to go through a rigorous round of research, development and testing before it will be approved by the Food and Drug Administration (FDA) for human use. That takes quite a bit of investment, so it is reasonable that the companies want to make a profit. However, when personal injury results because a drug was not thoroughly tested, was marketed for off-label (not approved by the FDA) use, or did not carry the appropriate warnings then pharmaceutical liability may come into play.

An article on the website of Nashville-based law firm Pohl & Berk, LLP points out that some drugs are so potent that the line between efficacy and toxicity can be quite thin. It is the responsibility of drug companies to ensure that the product is used properly and that relevant warnings and contraindications are clearly stated. If a patient sustains a preventable injury because the drug company breached their standard of care whether inadvertently or deliberately for whatever reason, the company is liable under the civil tort laws.

Personal injury can occur at any time; most of them are accidents. Notable exceptions are dangerous pharmaceuticals, which are considered tortious (wrongful) and infinitely preventable if the drug companies do their duty by their clients. If they do not, it is the patients who pay. According to the website of the Sampson Law Firm, injury arising from a defective or dangerous drug can have devastating, even fatal consequences, and often entails huge economic and non-economic costs. It is just right that these negligent companies pay compensation for those whom they have harmed, especially when it can be shown that the company was aware of a drug’s dangerous side effects, but released it to the public anyway, as often happens.

A few relevant cases that law firms typically handle include recalled drugs, contaminated drugs, and false claims.

However, drug companies have big budgets when it comes to legal matters; most people will not have the resources to make a dent in their armor. Any personal injury claim for pharmaceutical liability therefore should be handled by a law firm with the experience and connections to make them sit up and notice.
