Here is what I found out about Georgia’s HB 481. Contents Are the Unborn Considered People Under the Georgia Law? What Does the Georgia Law Consider as an Abortion? When Is Abortion Legal Under the Georgia Law? Will Doctor’s Try to Keep the Fetus Alive After an Abortion? Will All the Details of the Abortion Officially Go On Record?

Check the FDA Press Release Here: http://www.fda.gov/NewsEvents/Newsroom/PressAnnouncements/ucm271899.htm http://www.msnbc.msn.com/id/21134540/vp/44709138#44709138 (Video) From the CDC site: What is listeriosis?

The short answer is, online. I have been doing my taxes online since my 2nd W-2. My first time was at an H&R block walk-in, and since I made so little money, the guy did it for me for free 🙂 But once I found out they could be done online, and usually free, that’s what I started doing. I’ve only ever filed my federal taxes with two different online tax preparers: TurboTax and H&R Block. They both offer the same kind of services and I’ve […]

All of them are from the Lehigh Valley’s local newspaper The Morning Call and took place approximately around August 17 and 18th 2010. So, in no particular order: Emmaus Man Steals Almost $400,000 From His Company Over the Course of 9 years “A 57-year-old Emmaus man has been charged with stealing nearly $400,000 from his employer to support a cocaine habit, borough police said.” Full Story Normally, I would applaud such a thing…unfortunately, I can’t cosign the fact that all of those thousands supposedly went to […]

I knew that towns, and even whole states are feeling the financial crunch right now…but I had no idea that you could disband a town’s police force to save some money. It seems that San Luis, Colorado and various other towns are looking to cut costs by cutting out law enforcement. Around the country…towns — large and small — are also eliminating their police departments. The Los Angeles suburb of Maywood, Calif., fired its officers, as did rural Bethel, Maine. Near Pittsburgh, Fallowfield, Pa., also voted to […]
