Jeffrey Lapin's insight:

Interesting new bicycle safety product: The Blaze Laserlight.

 

It has significant potential to help cyclists avoid being struck by vehicles. It is approximated that 80% of bike accidents while a cyclist is going straight and a vehicle turns into them. This light, besides helping cyclists see, projects "a [green] laser light projection that projects the image of the bicycle five or six meters in front of" the actual bicycle. In addition, it is rechargeable, USB compatible, and 100 percent waterproof. It costs $200 but, as the article notes, "you can’t really put a price on safety."

US settles case over fake Facebook page

US settles case over fake Facebook page | Nebraska and National Accident, Injury & Disability Information | Scoop.it
WASHINGTON (AP) — The Justice Department has reached a $134,000 settlement with a New York woman after federal drug agents used information from her cellphone to set up a fake Facebook page in her identity, a tactic that…
Jeffrey Lapin's insight:

The Department of Justice ("DOJ") has agreed to a monetary settlement with a woman for a fake Facebook profile it created using her name and photos.

 

In 2010, Sondra Arquiett was arrested on drug charges. The Drug Enforcement Agency ("DEA"), after seizing her cell phone, created a fake Facebook page for Arquiett with pictures of her and other information obtained from the phone. The goal was to try to get her friends and associates into revealing incriminating information.

Arquiett sued claiming she suffered fear and emotional distress. She alleged that the fake page gave the impression that she was cooperating with law enforcement.

 

After initially defending creation of the fake page, the DOJ changed its opinion and said that the DEA's actions in this case went to far.

 

The settlement amount was $134,000.

Mobile app to diagnose head injuries scores FDA clearance

Mobile app to diagnose head injuries scores FDA clearance | Nebraska and National Accident, Injury & Disability Information | Scoop.it
The new Defense Automated Neurobehavioral Assessment is a mobile phone-based application designed to help medical providers identify cases of traumatic brain injury in almost any setting, which may help clinicians diagnose a patient in as little as five minutes.
Jeffrey Lapin's insight:

The new Defense Automated Neurobehavioral Assessment ("DANA") recently received FDA approval. DANA is a mobile phone-based application designed to help medical providers identify cases of traumatic brain injury (TBI") in as little as five minutes. The app could help detect TBI's in almost any setting.

 

The app operates much like a video game. Service members will perform a baseline series of on-screen exercises during which both their speed and accuracy will be recorded. After a suspected brain injury, the service member would be re-tested.

 

The Department of Defense reported that in 2013, there were more than 27,000 cases of traumatic brain injury diagnosed across all 4 main service branches.

 

Hopefully, once perfected, the app will be released for use by civilian medical providers and others in need of such an app.

The Defense Automated Neurobehavioral Assessment, known as DANA, is a mobile phone-based application, or app, designed to help medical providers identify cases of traumatic brain injury in almost any setting, which may help clinicians diagnose a patient in as little as five minutes.

The app will operate much like a video game. Service members will perform a baseline series of on-screen exercises during which both their speed and accuracy will be recorded. Service members who may have had a serious head injury will then participate in a series of both cognitive efficiency tests and self-administered questionnaires. Afterward, a clinician will review the results, comparing them to the results of the baseline exercises. The combination of the app's cognitive and psychological components allows for insight into the prevalence of symptoms related to both traumatic brain injury and post-traumatic stress disorder.

"In essence, measuring reaction time is like taking the temperature of the brain," said Corinna Lathan, founder and CEO of AnthroTronix, Inc., the Maryland-based research and development company that created the DANA. "It's a vital part of the data that any health professional needs to evaluate his patient."

According to the DANA research team, some of the factors that may affect reaction time include concussion, dementia, post-traumatic stress, depression and fatigue, among others.

Once fully validated for battlefield use, military officials said the product may be used to assist medical providers. In addition, DANA may be used to help assess fitness for duty and possible triage needs when warranted. In these instances, the mobility of the DANA -- its accessibility in a variety of settings and locations -- augments its functionality. The software can run on a variety of platforms, and is currently being tested on tablet devices as well.

DANA received development funding, in part, through a grant from the Rapid Innovation Fund, a federal support mechanism for small businesses. Developing innovative tools such as DANA is a priority for the military, especially as experts' understanding of traumatic brain injury expands.

In 2013, more than 27,000 cases of traumatic brain injury were diagnosed across all four main service branches stationed around the globe, according to the Department of Defense. That number is almost triple the number of cases diagnosed in 2000, when the DOD first began recording traumatic brain injury statistics.

Sioux City, IA (ABC9 News) - AT&T is helping Sioux City's East High School students to reinforce safe driving habits.

Students had the opportunity to participate in a texting and driving simulator today. The simulator is similar to a video game - drivers need to maintain a certain speed and are notified on-screen of when they need to check their phone or send text messages.

Students and faculty say that the simulator drives home the point of how dangerous taking your eyes off the road can be. Giovanni Cruz, an East High School 9th grader, says, "It kind of compares to real-life driving. It's really dangerous and it's just teaching you to like not text and drive."

Jay Weakland, a guidance counselor at East, says, "I was going up-and-down on the speed limit, and then a couple times I noticed I was changing lanes. So right away it was bothering me. I don't know how these kids are able to do both!"

Iowa, Nebraska, and South Dakota all have laws against texting and driving.

Driving is complicated and the statistics regarding car crashes are staggering. In addition, awareness is not the issue.

 

How we can combat distracted driving:

 

"The simplest solution is to silence the phone and put it away. ... That old adage, out of sight, out of mind is true. A more modern option is to find an app. There are a number of apps available to prevent texting and driving and most are free. ... Finally, ... use a designated texter.

 

The science is clear, we need to have our brains fully focused on the road while driving."

an article by RI Car Accident lawyer David Slepkow 401-437-1100
excerpt:


Prohibited use of cell phones while driving is the law in many communities hoping to eliminate car accidents caused by distracted driving. This is because speaking or texting on a cell phone while driving is a contributing factor in more than 25 percent of all vehicle accidents nationwide.


Not a New Phenomenon in RI or across Nation


Distracted driving is not a new phenomenon. It  is a problem that has been around as long as transportation. Any activity that diverts the motorist’s attention away from operating a motor vehicle creates a serious issue for everyone sharing the road with a distracted driver. While texting and using a smart phone or cell phone has become a recent problem, other driver distractions have been around for decades, including:


• Grooming or applying makeup
• Drinking or eating
• Reading, including studying maps
• Adjusting the radio, MP3 player or CD player
• Grasping for something out of reach in the vehicle
• Driving with one hand


Drivers become easily distracted when they divert their eyes from the roadway to dial a number, read a message on their smart phone, or type out a text reply. However, not all driver distractions caused by electronic equipment involves diverting eyes from the roadway or manipulating the device.

David Slepkow's curator insight, January 6, 12:52 AM

Driving is complicated. Many things can go wrong if the driver is not fully focused on the task at hand. It only takes a second for an unexpected event to occur causing a catastrophe. As new drivers, teens are already at higher risk for accidents. A combination of inexperience and overconfidence make car accidents the leading cause of death and injury for teens. Distracted driving,frequently caused by texting, is the leading cause of those accidents.


The statistics are staggering. In 2011, at least 23 percent of all car accidents involved cell phones. That works out to be 1.3 million accidents. More than 35,000 people lost their lives and at least 21,000 were injured. Despite laws that make testing and driving illegal in 43 states, the number of texting and driving accidents is not declining. In fact, distracted driving has now surpassed drinking and driving as the leading cause of death among teens.


Awareness is not the issue. A recent survey revealed that 95 percent of teens recognized that texting while driving is dangerous. However, nearly a third of those surveyed admitted they engage in the activity. Even more concerning, more than half thought it was not difficult to text and drive. These findings are consistent with other studies of multi-tasking. We typically overestimate our ability to multitask and our success rate while doing so.  The truth is that our brains are not designed to engage in two complex activities at the same time. When we think we are multitasking, we are actually going back and forth between two activities, usually to the detriment of both.  Multitasking is inefficient at best and reckless when combined with driving.


So why is it so difficult to stop teens from texting and driving? Cell phones have quickly become a part of the fabric of our lives. These devices have created new behaviors with unintended consequences. We joke about people being addicted to their cell phones while trying to resist the urge to check ours. Some psychologists have suggested that since cell phone usage has become so habitual, education and punishment are unlikely to yield the changes necessary. Instead, we need to help teens focus on changing their behavior. To that end, using deliberate strategies are the best way to prevent texting and driving.

The nation’s auto regulatory authorities have also backed the technology. Last month, the US Department of Transportation said that it is considering making it mandatory for all automakers to adopt such V2V communication systems by 2016, as a part of its efforts to solidify industry-wide standards for customer safety.

Moreover, auto safety watchdog, the National Highway Traffic Safety Administration (NHTSA), is also pushing for a regulation that will in six months require automakers to install automatic braking systems.

A Busy Year For Auto Industry Regulators

Regulatory authorities around the country have been actively probing automakers and safety parts’ suppliers to ascertain any potential negligence as to customer safety.


The world’s second-largest provider of auto safety parts, Takata Corp UNSP (ADR) (TKTDY), is being probed by the NHTSA for manufacturing potentially damaged airbags, which are then installed in vehicles of various American and Japanese automakers. This led them to collectively recall over 6 million vehicles this year for the airbag defect, identified by faulty airbags rupturing upon deployment.

In March, Toyota Motor Corp (ADR) (TM) agreed to pay a penalty of $1.2 billion for settling a four-year criminal probe regarding delayed auto recalls in 2010, stemming from an unintended yet serious acceleration defect owing to sticky gas pedals.

Maybe it should have read, "being uber dangerous." 

 

The Instagram video has been removed, presumably by Kenner. However, it is available other places. 

 

This is yet another example why we should not look to celebrities as role models, especially "reality stars."

Mr. Kellenyi demanded Ms. Jenner’s dad, Bruce, step in and curb her dangerous behavior.


“Bruce Jenner, being a world famous personality, should never let this be broadcast,” Mr. Kellenyi said. “I know if Bruce were in my shoes, this type of driving would never happen in his family.”


Perhaps Bruce was too busy getting his hair did?

“If I were advising Jenner, I would think that the morally responsible thing to do would be to do some sort of outreach to say it’s a mistake, and it’s not how people should be driving, and driving is dangerous, and I wasn’t demonstrating safe behavior, and I promise to do better in the future,” Teens Against Distracted Driving attorney and creator Jason Epstein is quoted as saying.


Ms. Jenner did not respond to Fox’s requests for comment, and has not spoken out on the matter, most likely because she’s preoccupied with whatever this is.

Former WWE wrestlers sue over brain damage, other injuries

Former WWE wrestlers sue over brain damage, other injuries | Nebraska and National Accident, Injury & Disability Information | Scoop.it
Two former professional wrestlers are suing the WWE, alleging it ignored or downplayed signs of brain damage and other injuries while it raked in millions.
Jeffrey Lapin's insight:

Two former WWE wrestlers have filed a potential class action lawsuit in Philadelphia regarding concussions and neurological damage suffered by them as well as other wrestlers.

 

The lawsuit alleges, in part:
"For most of its history, WWE has engaged in a campaign of misinformation and deception to prevent its wrestlers from understanding the true nature and consequences of the injuries they have sustained."
"Under the guise of providing 'entertainment,' WWE has, for decades, subjected its wrestlers to extreme physical brutality that it knew, or should have known" caused many medical problems including brain damage;
WWE forces wrestlers to do stunts "in a matter that dramatically increases -- often to a near-certainty -- their chances of sustaining brain damage ... When performed by, and on, hulking, poorly trained, steroid-using wrestlers with various levels of dexterousness, they are a recipe for disaster-- and widespread, long term brain damage."

 

The ex-wrestlers who filed suit are:
Vito LoGrasso, who wrestled under the names Big Vito and Skull Von Krush, from 1991 to 1998 and from 2005 to 2007; &
Evan Singleton, under the name of Adam Mercer, from 2012 to 2013.

 

The lawsuit seeks monetary damages as well as medical monitoring.

 

An attorney representing the WWE stated that the WWE had never concealed medical information from its wrestlers. In addition, he stated, "WWE was well ahead of sports organizations in implementing concussion management procedures and policies as a precautionary measure as the science and research on this issue emerged."

Pedestrian and Bicyle accident statistics

                      Pedestrian and Bicyclist Crash Statistics

 

 

   There seem to be an alarming number of serious pedestrian accident, and bicycle wrecks. In 2012 there were 4,742 pedestrian deaths in motor vehicle wrecks, and 726 bicycle deaths. It appears from the hospital records that only of fraction of pedestrian crashes are even recorded by police. In the same year there were 78,000 pedestrian injuries, and the cost of these injuries to children age 14 and younger is over 5.2 billion per year.

   Is pedestrian traffic dangerous? Since the statistics do not reveal how many people are walking, and how far, it is difficult to say whether walking is inherently dangerous, and there are other factors such as time of day, was the accident in the cross walk, the speed of the vehicle. The raw data for pedestrians shows the following breakdown by cause of injury: trip on uneven side walk , 24%; tripped , cause unknown, 17% ; hit by car, 12%; pets involved, 6% ; tripped on stone, 5%. 

    Anyone who walks in the cities knows the danger of crossing at the light when there is right on red. Even following the traffic lights there is the risk of a driver not stopping at the red light.

   Bicyclists in Georgia’s cities complain that the cars do not respect them, and do not give them the 3 feet clearance required by Georgia Law, and the data shows there are less accidents when bicyclists are outside the city.  In 2012 there were 726 bicycle deaths, and 49,000 injuries. The injuries are more serious generally than injuries to a passenger in a car accident. It has been established that helmets do reduce the risk of head injuries. According to the National Safety Council the cost of bicycle injuries is over 4 billion per year.

   Who is getting killed in bicycle wrecks? It’s interesting that 88 % of the deaths are male, 69 % occur in urban areas, 30% occur between 4:00 p.m. and 8:00 p.m., and 24% killed had blood alcohol concentrations of 0.08 g/dl or higher. The take away is that women may be more careful than men, don’t bike during rush hour, and at dusk, and don’t drink and ride bikes. This data can be found in the 2012 National Survey on Bicyclist and Pedestrian Attitudes and Behaviors, and the National Highway Traffic Safety Administration Traffic Safety Facts. Stay safe.

​Hey, Guys: Posting a Lot of Selfies Doesn’t Send a Good Message | Nebraska and National Accident, Injury & Disability Information | Scoop.it
Jeffrey Lapin's insight:

A study conducted at Ohio State examined 800 U.S. men, aged 18–40, in two forms of visual self-presentation: editing one's image in photographs posted on social networking sites (SNSs) and posting "selfie." The study was trying to identify "trait predictors" of the men through these 2 forms of self-presentation.

 

The study found:

Men who posted more selfies than others scored higher for narcissism and psychopathy; and

Men who were more likely to edit their selfies before posting scored higher in narcissism and self-objectification.

 

The study's author points out that although many of the men who scored high in these areas they were still within the normal range of behavior. More simply, these men were not necessarily narcissists or psychopaths. 

 

The study's author stated, "We are all concerned with our self-presentation online, but how we do that may reveal something about our personality."

 

The study was published online in the journal Personality and Individual Differences.

David Slepkow's curator insight, January 6, 12:40 AM

Since 2007, 44 states and the District of Columbia have enacted bans on texting while driving, according to the Governors Highway Safety Association; 14 states and Washington, D.C., prohibit the use of hand-held cell phones while driving. No state prohibits all cell phone use behind the wheel.


States might be able to do more to prevent distracted driving with more money, but most of them have not been able to qualify for federal funding meant specifically for that purpose, says Jonathan Adkins, executive director of the GHSA.


In fiscal years 2014 and 2015, Connecticut was the only state to qualify for distracted driving funding approved by Congress in the federal transportation bill. It was the only state to meet the strict requirements of the bill, such as progressive fines for repeat offenses and no exceptions for drivers who text while stopped at a traffic light.

"Most states have strong distracted driving laws and are effectively enforcing them," Adkins says. "However, the federal funding requirements are so restrictive that it effectively prohibits nearly every state from qualifying for this needed funding… When the carrot is so far out of reach, states are not going to be motivated to strive toward it."


The State Farm survey finds that many drivers now attempt to self-regulate when it comes to distracting behaviors. For example, 63% of motorists say they're more likely to use their cell phones while stopped at a traffic light.

OSHA's Top 10 Workplace Safety Violations for 2014

 

OSHA recently announced its preliminary top 10 workplace safety violations for 2014. Unfortunately, these violations remain the same as 2013. This helps show that employers are not doing enough in these areas to protect workers.

 

Nebraska workers injured on the job, including for these types of violations, are entitled to workers’ compensation benefits.

excerpt:


While some occupations have a greater risk of work-related injuries than others do, anyone can be injured on their job. Nearly all employers in Rhode Island are required by RI law to provide workers’ compensation insurance to every employee to ensure coverage in the case of a work-related illness or injury. Workers’ compensation helps individuals injured on the job recover lost wages and pay for medical expenses.


Individuals can be injured in any line of work in Rhode island. However, the most common types of on-the-job injuries happen to a:


• Construction worker
• Healthcare worker including nurses and nurse’s aides
• Manufacturing and industrial employee
• Warehouse and factory worker
• Commercial driver
• Sanitation worker
• Municipal employee including law enforcement and corrections officer, firefighter and road worker
• Airline and airport employee
• State employee
• Service industry employee including cook, waitress, maid, janitor, delivery driver, child care worker and others
• Miner

For fiscal year 2013, which runs from October 1, 2012 through September 30, 2013, OSHA’s top 10 violations were:


  1. Fall Protection
  2. Hazard Communication
  3. Scaffolding
  4. Respiratory Protection
  5. Electrical – Wiring Methods
  6. Powered Industrial Trucks
  7. Ladders
  8. Lockout/Tagout
  9. Electrical – General Requirements
  10. Machine Guarding

Both 2013 and 2014 have all of the same workplace safety violations. The top 4 remain the same while some of the other violation’s rankings changed.

Sources:

Hopefully, employers will examine these rankings and increase worker safety especially in these top 10 areas. Worker safety should be the paramount concern for employers.

WORKERS’ COMPENSATION AND OTHER CLAIMS

In Nebraska, workers injured on the job are entitled to workers’ compensation benefits except in a couple of circumstances. The benefits injured workers can receive, depending on the injury, include:


  • Payment of medical bills
  • Payment or reimbursement for prescription medication
  • Mileage reimbursement to and from medical appointments
  • Temporary Total Disability (“TTD”) benefits
  • Permanent Partial Disability (“PPD”) benefits
  • Permanent Total Disability (“PTD”) benefits
  • Vocational Rehabilitation


In addition, there are certain types of work injuries in which an injured worker may have a claim against a person or entity other than their employer. These are often called “third-party claims.” For these types of claims, an injured worker is entitled to more than just those benefits offered under workers’ compensation, including money for pain and suffering.


If you have been injured on the job in Nebraska, contact Lapin Law Offices to learn about your rights and what we might be able to do for you. We offer a free consultation and do not collect a fee unless we get money for you.

Jeffrey Lapin's insight:

A 20-year-old North Dakota woman has been charged with negligent homicide after a rear-end crash that caused the death of an 89 year-old grandmother, who was seated in the passenger seat of the vehicle that was struck. According to the complaint and affidavit filed against her, the woman is accused of surfing Facebook on her phone while driving approximately 85 mph. She allegedly did not brake at all before the crash. Investigators obtained a warrant to search the woman's phone, which allegedly revealed the Facebook use as well as several text messages being sent while the woman was driving.

an article by RI Car Accident lawyer David Slepkow 401-437-1100
excerpt:


Reckless drivers are more than just a menace to other motorists operating their vehicles in a safe manner, because of the potential of causing accidents on the roadway. An irresponsible aggressive motorist driving recklessly can commit a moving traffic violation that substantially endangers people and property, which often leads to injuries, death and property damage.


Common types of reckless driving behaviors on the Rhode Island (RI) roadway include:


• Making an unsafe lane change
• Driving at excessive speed
• Dangerously weaving through traffic
• Tailgating (following too closely behind)
• Passing a legally stopped school bus
• Failing to yield to motorists with the right-of-way
• Failing to signaling when turning
• Talking or texting on a smart phone
• Racing and drag racing
• Failing to stay in a single lane
• Operating a vehicle with faulty brakes
• Performing illegal U-turns (180 degree turn)
• Cutting off other vehicles on the roadway
• Passing vehicles on the right
• Road rage driving
• Driving faster than the posted speed limit through school zones and construction zones
• Passing on the right shoulder or in a no passing lane
• Impaired driving such as driving drunk or when on drugs
• Disregard of traffic signals and signs

ennifer Meyers was driving the SUV with her daughter and 89-year-old grandmother, according to an affidavit. A witness told police he saw Meyers’ brake lights and turn signal when Sletten’s Ford Escape plowed into the car on Interstate I-29.


Sletten did not brake and nearly hit the witness’ vehicle after striking Meyers’ SUV, according to the affidavit.


Meyers’ grandmother, Phyllis Gordon, a Minnesota resident, was a passenger in the front seat and died on the scene, the affidavit said.

Meyers and her daughter Paige, who also live in Minnesota, were treated at a hospital for non-life-threatening injuries, the court documents said.


Investigators later obtained a warrant to search Sletten’s phone and determined she was looking at photos on her mobile Facebook app at the time of the crash, according to the affidavit. She had also sent text messages while driving. The lack of skid marks on the road suggested Sletten did not see Meyers’ car in front of her, the documents said.


Police obtained a warrant and arrested Sletten on August 27.

North Dakota Highway Patrol Capt. Bryan Niewind said it is against state law to compose or read electronic messages while driving.

Driver who killed teen posts his totaled car online with smiley face

Driver who killed teen posts his totaled car online with smiley face | Nebraska and National Accident, Injury & Disability Information | Scoop.it
A 16-year-old Brooklyn Center boy clung to life for days before dying after a suspected drunken driver, without a valid license, fled one crash on a north-metro highway and ran into the teen’s car down the road moments later, authorities said
Jeffrey Lapin's insight:

Minnesota man, after causing a fatal crash, makes horrible posts on Facebook.

 

The man, who was on probation, was allegedly drunk and driving on revoked license, gets into one crash, and while fleeing that one, causes another one with a vehicle driven by a 16-year-old driver. The boy died a couple of days the crash.

 

After the crashes, but before the boy died, the man posts photos of what was left of his vehicle with these messages:

 

"That’s her front end after I got done with her lol.” He signed that message with a smiley face.

 

“I’m all good slept a day in the hospital then came home and did yard work lol."

 

The man admitted to posting the images and comments, which have since been deleted.

 

This man's level of callousness is atrocious. Besides allegedly driving while intoxicated and a revoked license, his Facebook posts make it seem very likely he is going to get any sympathy from the police, prosecutor or jury, if the case goes to trial, or sentencing judge.

an article by RI Car Accident lawyer David Slepkow 401-437-1100
excerpt:


Anytime a moving vehicle hits a pedestrian in Rhode Island, the results can be catastrophic or fatal. The National Highway Traffic Safety Administration (NHTSA) indicates that nearly 4800 pedestrians were killed in 2012 in crashes involving a motor vehicle. In addition, there were 76,000 pedestrian injuries recorded in the same year.


Not every  RI car accident that involves a pedestrian occurs at a dangerous intersections or crosswalks. In fact, many walkers believe they have the right of way in nearly every situation along the Providence roadways, and often fail to obey RI traffic related laws enacted for their protection. However, one of the leading causes of pedestrian injuries and fatalities involves alcohol impairment, which plays a key factor in nearly half of all pedestrian deaths.


Determining Responsibility for a Rhode Island Pedestrian accident

Often times, it is challenging to determine which party is at fault or responsible for causing the accident in Rhode Island. In almost every incident, the case will be determined by negligence, which refers to the careless or reckless action of one or both parties. In most motorist/pedestrian accidents, determining the right-of-way can be confusing.

On the Saturday before McCarthy died, Vanwagner posted photos of what was left of his vehicle on his Facebook page and wrote, “That’s her front end after I got done with her lol.” He signed that message with a smiley face.


Under a second photo, he commented: “I’m all good slept a day in the hospital then came home and did yard work lol.”


Vanwagner acknowledged posting the images and said in an interview Wednesday, “I didn’t even know I hit somebody. I just thought I hit something.” The photos and the accompanying comments were deleted Wednesday night.


It was on Wednesday, he added, that he learned that “another kid died” as Vanwagner was heading to a friend’s home in north Minneapolis.


“Police came and arrested me [Wednesday] morning and let me out because the charges won’t be coming for months,” he said.

Vanwagner said, “I know I’m looking at spending time in prison, so I’m trying to spend as much time as I can with my 18-month-old.”

Do we really use only ten percent of our brains?
Jeffrey Lapin's insight:

The Ten-Percent Myth

 

The Myth: We only use 10% of our brains.

 

Answer: No. This is false. 

 

Partial Reasoning: Brain imaging research techniques clearly show that the vast majority of the brain is active and that many parts of our brains are used for various tasks.

This was also the reason that Caroline Myss gave for her alleged intuitive powers on a segment of Eye to Eye with Bryant Gumbel, which aired in July of 1998. Myss, who has written books on unleashing "intuitive powers," said that everyone has intuitive gifts, and lamented that we use so little of the mind's potential. To make matters worse, just the week before, on the very same program, correct information was presented about the myth. In a bumper spot between the program and commercials, a quick quiz flashed onscreen: What percentage of the brain is used? The multiple-choice answers ranged from 10 percent to 100 percent. The correct answer appeared, which I was glad to see. But if the producers knew that what one of their interviewees said is clearly and demonstrably inaccurate, why did they let it air? Does the right brain not know what the left brain is doing? Perhaps the Myss interview was a repeat, in which case the producers presumably checked her facts after it aired and felt some responsibility to correct the error in the following week's broadcast. Or possibly the broadcasts aired in sequence and the producers simply did not care and broadcast Myss and her misinformation anyway.

Even Uri Geller, who has made a career out of trying to convince people he can bend metal with his mind, trots out this little gem. This claim appears in his book Uri Geller's Mind-Power Book in the introduction: "Our minds are capable of remarkable, incredible feats, yet we don't use them to their full capacity. In fact, most of us only use about 10 per cent of our brains, if that. The other 90 per cent is full of untapped potential and undiscovered abilities, which means our minds are only operating in a very limited way instead of at full stretch. I believe that we once had full power over our minds. We had to, in order to survive, but as our world has become more sophisticated and complex we have forgotten many of the abilities we once had" (italicized phrases emphasized in original).

Evidence Against the Ten-Percent Myth

The argument that psychic powers come from the unused majority of the brain is based on the logical fallacy of the argument from ignorance. In this fallacy, lack of proof for a position (or simply lack of information) is used to try to support a particular claim. Even if it were true that the vast majority of the human mind is unused (which it clearly is not), that fact in no way implies that any extra capacity could somehow give people paranormal powers. This fallacy pops up all the time in paranormal claims, and is especially prevalent among UFO proponents. For example: Two people see a strange light in the sky. The first, a UFO believer, says, "See there! Can you explain that?" The skeptic replies that no, he can't. The UFO believer is gleeful. "Ha! You don't know what it is, so it must be aliens!" he says, arguing from ignorance.

Distracted driving: DOT says using navigational apps is as dangerous as texting and driving

Distracted driving: DOT says using navigational apps is as dangerous as texting and driving | Nebraska and National Accident, Injury & Disability Information | Scoop.it
Rapid evolution of smartphone apps leave a potentially dangerous gray area for police, motorists
Jeffrey Lapin's insight:

Can using navigational apps be as dangerous as texting and driving?

The National Highway Traffic Safety Administration (NHTSA) wants to issue voluntary guidelines for specific electronic devices including apps on smartphones. Right now, many states laws regarding smartphone usage while driving only refer to talking or texting on the phone. Using a navigational app is usually not covered by these laws.

 

My Take: The NHTSA and states need to go father than issue "voluntary" guidelines. Laws should prohibit all forms of distracting driving. Remember, there is no such thing as "safe" distracted driving. Distracted driving, in all of its forms, is dangerous.

an article by RI Car Accident lawyer David Slepkow 401-437-1100
excerpt:


Falling asleep while driving a vehicle is obviously a clearly dangerous situation. However, driving while drowsy or sleepy is also dangerous, because the driver is often less attentive behind the wheel, as slower your reaction time, and challenges their ability to make good driving decisions.


The National Highway Traffic Safety Administration (NHTSA) recognizes that certain Rhode Island car accidents tend to have specific characteristics when the crash involves sleepiness or drowsy driving, including:


• The collision tends to be very serious
• The vehicle often leaves the roadway
• These types of accidents occur during early morning, late night or mid-afternoon hours
• Deadly crashes involving drowsiness tend to happen on high-speed roads
• The motors at fault is usually the only one inside the vehicle
• There are no obvious signs that the driver attempted to avoid crashing


The most common types of RI auto accidents involve rear end collisions, rollovers, head-on crashes, multi-vehicle accidents and single vehicles running off the road.


If you were involved in a motor vehicle collision cause by tired driving then contact a RI personal injury lawyer. A Rhode Island personal injury attorney will help you get the compensation that you deserve.
