If you have encountered a car accident recently for which you were not at fault and your car underwent substantial damages as a result of it, you must be thinking of hiring a car accident attorney. Without the help of a professional automobile attorney, it will be next to impossible to get a fair compensation. It’s the duty of a professional car accident lawyer to get his client the best possible pay-out for any injury or damage that occurred during the accident. Though the compensation generally includes only medical expenses, damage to property is also counted in some cases. While it’s important to hire an automobile lawyer, choosing the right one can be a hectic task. So, here are some basic yet effective tips to help you find the right car accident attorney:
A new report shows that Atlantic sea-surface temperatures of the American Northeast coast were the highest recorded in 150 years during the second half of 2012. This marks the greatest jump in sea-surface temperatures ever measured.
It is unusual for the average temperature to fluctuate by more than a degree or so. In the past thirty years, the temperature of the northeastern Atlantic waters has risen from 54.3 degrees F to 57.2 degrees F. This level of warming has not been witness in any other ocean.
The increase in ocean temperatures off the Northeast had led to changes in distributions of some fish populations.
One scientist from the NOAA, the organization that released the report, said while it’s still unclear what how this discovery will affect the Northeast Shelf ecosystem and its marine life, the ecosystem is indeed changing.
A new study indicates that faith in God may lead to better short-term treatment outcomes in patients suffering from psychiatric illnesses.
According to David Rosmarin, a clinician and instructor in the department of psychiatry at Harvard Medical School, individuals who professed a strong belief in God later reported a better well-being, less depression, and less anxiety in face of their treatments.
159 patients were evaluated in the Behavioral Health Partial Hospital department at McLean Hospital in Belmont, Massachusetts. Participants were asked to rate their spiritual faith and their expectations regarding the treatment on a five-point scale. Researchers then assessed each patient’s well-being at the beginning and end of the program, accounting for their levels of depression, anxiety and self-harm.
Rosmarin reported that patients who described themselves as possessing more than a “slight” belief in a higher power were twice as likely to respond to treatment.
Researchers are still unsure as to whether the cause of the treatment boost can be accredited to spirituality, some outside factor, or if spiritual people, somehow, are healthier than others.
A new study suggest that the use of porn (or other sexually explicit material) have little impact on sexual behavior. Experts suggest that there are many other factors that contribute to younger individuals engaging in risky sexual activities.
Researchers looked at approximately 4,600 participants in the Netherlands, between the ages of 15 and 25. Participants were asked about the amount of porn they viewed as well as the type of porn they viewed. They were also asked about any risky or adventurous sexual experiences (i.e., number of partners, same-sex partners, paid for sex, etc).
The results found that only about 0.3 percent to 4 percent of sexual behaviors mentioned by participants could be directly attributed to pornography usage. One factor that researchers do believe caused such behaviors is “sensation-seeking personalities”. To the closest extent, porn has the possibility of making people more open to new sexual experiences and in general making them more aroused, but there is no direct correlation between porn and risky behaviors.
Findings of this study were published April 25, 2013, online in the Journal of Sexual Medicine.

A Minnesota hospital fears that the remains of a second stillborn child may have been sent to the laundry.
The first set of remains was discovered in a basket of dirty hospital linens by a laundry service earlier this week. The remains of a second stillborn are still missing, and St. Paul’s Regions Hospital suspects that they were left in the same laundry basket as the first set.
According the hospital, the remains of both children were wrapped in linens and delivered to the morgue, but were unfortunately mistaken for dirty laundry along the way.
The hospital employee responsible for the mix-up has not yet been identified.
