Times to avoid surgery

Florida residents contemplating surgery might be interested to hear that there are certain times when the risk of surgical errors might be greater. While modern experts do not exactly advise when to have surgeries based upon lunar cycles, some do say that timing might make a difference.

The personal stories behind the backers of immigration reform

Most people in Florida are familiar with the name of Sen. Marco Rubio, who has been championing the cause for immigration reform along with several other elected officials for these past few months.  For him, immigration reform carries with it a personal story.  For him, and others like him, he would not be where he is today if it wasn't for immigration.

Man taken into custody regarding fatal crash

A 26-year-old man has been taken into police custody regarding a crash at a Coral Cables intersection that killed two and injured the driver himself. The accused driver was allegedly speeding and intoxicated when he struck a Toyota Corolla from behind. The Toyota Corolla was reported to be stopped at a red light at the intersection of 8th Street and 37th Avenue and contained a 44-year-old woman and a 34-year-old man. Both were residents of Sweetwater.

Supreme Court says illegal to require voters to prove citizenship

Some residents here in Florida may be familiar with the National Voter Registration Act of 1993.  For those who may not be familiar with this act, it was established to make registration and voting easier for all Americans.  But several states have challenged this federal law, including Alabama, Arizona, Georgia, Kansas and Tennessee, with another 12 other states contemplating similar actions.  These states are challenging the law by requiring voters to prove U.S. citizenship prior to voting--something the U.S. Supreme Court ruled to be unlawful this month.

Is the immigration reform bill really that politically charged?

Whether you use the term illegal immigrants, undocumented immigrants or unauthorized migrants, you're more than likely referring to the group of 1.6 million people who are currently considered to be here without permission by the government. And if you're like this group of people, you've probably been sitting on pins and needles these last few months, waiting for Congress to decide the fate of a bill that could mean sweeping immigration reform across the nation.

Misdiagnoses and Malpractice Data

Failure to diagnose a condition correctly is more common than operating on the wrong side of the body. In 2009, 583 cases were misdiagnosed and resulted in death or serious injuries. The problem is severe and was recently discussed at an international conference. Studies have shown that misdiagnoses stem from negligence and a flawed way of thinking, not because the illness is exotic or rare.

Immigrant minors being detained longer than allowed, study shows

Back in April, we tackled the surprising behavior that is occurring in immigration court rooms across the nation.  As we discussed in the post, minors, some even barely old enough to talk, are facing deportation proceedings without assistance from legal counsel.  And while this is going on in the courtroom, another breakdown in the system appears to be occurring to minors who are detained by agents from the U.S. Immigration and Customs Enforcement.

Florida hazing death prompts wrongful death lawsuit

A Bethune-Cockman University student died in a car accident last year. His mother has filed a wrongful death lawsuit against the school and a national fraternity. The lawsuit claims that hazing was the cause of his death and that neither the school nor the fraternity did enough to prevent it.
