What Is The Lastest On The The Accident At The Dallas Area Rapid Transit Rail Line In The Deep Ellum Area ?
This Accident Happened On Friday Feb. 9, 2007
1 dead in DART rail construction accident
08:11 PM CST on Friday, February 9, 2007
From Staff Reports
A trench collapsed Friday afternoon along a DART rail line under construction in Deep Ellum, killing one worker and injuring a second, officials said.
The accident occurred around 1:30 p.m. at a work site along Malcolm X Boulevard near Elm Street. The trench collapsed on two workers who were helping reset a water line between the future Deep Ellum and Baylor stations along the planned Green Line rail tracks that will extend south from downtown, DART spokesman Morgan Lyons said.
ROBERTO M. SANCHEZ / Al Día
Dallas Fire-Rescue officers removed the body of the construction worker who was killed. Dallas Fire-Rescue spokeswoman Annette Ponce said the department's technical rescue team was called to the scene to rescue two men. Firefighters dug their way to a victim trapped under the rubble, who was pronounced dead at the scene. Another victim was pulled from the site and taken to Baylor University Medical Center in unknown condition.
Neither victim's name was released. Both men worked for a subcontractor handling utility work along the line, Mr. Lyons said.
A total of 16 fire personnel worked at the scene to extricate the victims, Ms. Ponce said.
Mr. Lyons said work along that portion of the Green Line would be shut down until OSHA officials can complete their investigation and return the site back to DART.
"We've never had a fatal accident like this on the DART rail system, going back to 1992," he said. "Our own staff will work with OSHA to investigate what happened and learn from it."

Parenting Plan/Revoked Rights?
Hello, I Made A Big Mistake Of Listening To The Lady At The Court House. The Father Of My Child Hasnt Been Around (Physically Or Financially) Since He Was 3 Months. The Lady Said I Cant Take His Rights Away Till A Year And To File For Child Support And A Parenting Plan. Big Mistake! Come To Find Out, Its Only 6 Months And I Already Filed For Everything And We Have A Court Date At The End Of The Month.
Heres The Tricky Part: His Parents Have Always Been Involved. They Had Plans To Take My Son For A Weekend But He Was Sick So I Simply Said, I'D Rather Him Not Go Out Why Dont You Come Over? Well, They Flipped And Filed For Emergency Visits (Denied). And Then Wrote All These Insane (And Very Hurtful) Accusations.
Anyways, He Was Paying Child Support Every Other Week (Court Ordered For Every Week) And Still Hasnt Contacted Me At All! No Big Surprise. Can I Go To Court And Get His Rights Taken Away? I Know His Mother Is Only Being On His Side So She Can See My Son And She Is Paying His Child Support! He'S About To Lose His House And Car And Drinking Is More Important. Thats How I Know.
Please Dont Bash Me. We Were Together For 3 Years, My Son Wasnt Planned But He Still Left. He Also Has A New Father That Stepped In And Has Been More Than Amazing And I Dont Want My Son To Get Confused Because Of The Grandparents!
Not a great situation. First, let's talk about the grandparents. Grandparents have no legal right to the baby whatsoever. They do not have a right to visitation. They do not have a right to do anything outside of what the parents decide. That being said, I'm not sure you are gong ot be able to terminate the father's parental rights. In general, there are only a select number of reasons that rights can be terminated. They tend to be:
-Severe or chronic abuse or neglect
-Abuse or neglect of other children in the household
-Long-term mental illness or deficiency of the parent(s)
-Long-term alcohol- or drug-induced incapacity of the parent(s)
-Failure to support or maintain contact with the child
-Involuntary termination of the rights of the parent to another child
The fact that he has has paid a little child support is not going to be helpful, although you can argue that he has never had contact with the child. However, even if you do not get his rights terminated, you have a dead bang winner of an argument for being granted sole custody. With a father figur ein the picture and no contact from the biological dad, it is in the best interest of the child to not have contact with actual dad.
I'd contact an attorney on this one. The stakes are too high and you need someone on your side who knows the system.
How Did Nelson Mandela Fight For Equality?
Please Be Descriptive And Write A Paragraph
As a young student, Mandela became involved in political opposition to the white minority government's denial of political, social and economic rights to South Africa's black majority. Joining the African National Congress in 1942, he founded its more dynamic Youth League two years later together with Walter Sisulu, Oliver Tambo and others.
After the 1948 election victory of the Afrikaner-dominated National Party with its apartheid policy of racial segregation, Mandela was prominent in the ANC's 1952 Defiance Campaign and the 1955 Congress of the People, whose adoption of the Freedom Charter provided the fundamental program of the anti-apartheid cause. During this time Mandela and fellow lawyer Oliver Tambo operated the law firm of Mandela and Tambo, providing free or low-cost legal counsel to many blacks who would have been otherwise entirely without legal representation.
Initially committed to non-violent mass struggle he and 150 others were arrested on 5 December 1956 and charged with treason. The marathon Treason Trial of 1956-1961 followed, and all were acquitted. Mandela and his colleagues accepted the case for armed action after the shooting of unarmed protesters at Sharpeville in March 1960 and the subsequent banning of the ANC and other anti-apartheid groups.
In 1961 he became the commander of the ANC's armed wing Umkhonto we Sizwe ("Spear of the Nation", or MK), which he co-founded. He coordinated a sabotage campaign against military, government and civilian targets and made plans for possible guerrilla war if sabotage failed to end apartheid. He also fundraised for MK abroad, and arranged for paramilitary training, visiting various African governments.
On August 5, 1962 he was arrested after the CIA tipped off the police, after living on the run for seventeen months and was imprisoned in the Johannesburg Fort. Three days later the charges of leading workers to strike in 1961 and leaving the county illegally were read to him during a court appearance. On October 25, 1962, Mandela was sentenced to five years in prison. Two years later on June 11, 1964 a verdict had been reached concerning his previous engagement in the African National Congress.
While Mandela was in prison, police arrested prominent ANC leaders on 11 July 1963 at Liliesleaf Farm, Rivonia. Mandela was brought in, and at the Rivonia Trial, Mandela, Ahmed Kathrada, Walter Sisulu, Govan Mbeki, Andrew Mlangeni, Raymond Mhlaba, Elias Motsoaled, Walter Mkwayi (escaped during trial), Arthur Goldreich (escaped from prison before trial), Dennis Goldberg and Lionel "Rusty" Bernstein were charged with sabotage and crimes equivalent to treason (but which were easier for the government to prove). Joel Joffe, Arthur Chaskalson and George Bizos were part of the defence team that represented the accused. All except Rusty Bernstein were found guilty and sentenced to life imprisonment on 12 June, 1964. Charges included involvement in planning armed action, in particular sabotage (which Mandela admits to) and a conspiracy to help other countries invade South Africa (which Mandela denies). Over the course of the next twenty-six years, Mandela became increasingly associated with opposition to apartheid to the point where the slogan "Free Nelson Mandela" became the rallying cry for all anti-apartheid campaigners around the world.
Refusing an offer of conditional release in return for renouncing armed struggle (February 1985), Mandela remained in prison until February 1990, when sustained ANC campaigning and international pressure led to his release on 11 February, on the orders of state president F.W. de Klerk and the ending of the ban on the ANC. He and de Klerk shared the Nobel Peace Prize in 1993. Mandela had already been awarded the Sakharov Prize for Freedom of Thought in 1988.
As president of the ANC (July 1991 - December 1997) he ran a largely ceremonial and uncompetitive campaign against de Klerk for the new office of President of South Africa. Mandela won, becoming the nation's first black Head of State. De Klerk was appointed deputy president.
How Can I Stop My Wife'S Attorney From Seeking Alimony From Me?
To Any Attorney That May Be Able To Help Me, I'D Greatly Appreciate It.
I'Ve Been Married To My Wife For 40 Years. She Has Never Worked Because I Own My Business And She Has Never Had To. She Has Lived The Life Of Luxury For Many Years Now. About 5 Years Ago, My Business Took A Big Hit And We Lost A Lot Of Money. However, She Would Not Change Her Spending Habits And We Are Now In The Hole With A House We Cannot Afford Because She Refuses To Put The House On The Market. Needless To Say, In Order To Stop The Bleeding, I Needed To File For Divorce.
I Am A 64 Year Old Man And Yes, I Have An Attorney Who I Have Paid 20 Grand Already And He Isn'T Doing Much. My Wife'S Attorney Is Seeking Alimony And Quite Frankly, I Don'T Plan On Working Much Longer. I&Quot;M Trying To Get Them To See That At 64, She'S Better Off Just Taking The 67% Of The Assets That I Drafted In A Settlement Deal (I Am Only Getting 33%). Her Attorney Believes She Can Get That Plus $17,000 A Month In Alimony. Are They Crazy? I'M Planning On Retiring In 4 Months When I Turn 65. She Could Make That Alone In Income If She Would Invest In Her Portion Of The Assets, So Why Are They Going After Alimony? Any Advice?
You can't stop them from asking. It's normal to request alimony for someone who hasn't worked outside the home for that many years. Further she's probably not remotely prepared to start supporting herself at this point in her life. Divorcing her isn't necessarily the answer to a spending problem in a situation like yours.
And yes, they're asking for it because they can and your current income apparently shows it is feasible. Just because they ask doesn't mean it will happen, but I can't see the court not awarding her alimony after all these years of marriage, even with a settlement.

Why Have We Allowed Lawyers To Control And Ruin Our Society?
They Should Only Have &Quot;Domain&Quot; In A Court-Room - No Where Else!!!
They Are Now Writing Our Laws (Elected Officials Used To Do This).
They Are Doing All Of The Work Our Our Idiotic Affirmative Action And Senile Federal Judges.
These Parasites Are Controlling Every Aspect Of Business Thanks To Frivolous Lawsuits And Threats Of Lawsuits At Every Turn.
If You Want To Know Why Our Jobs Are All In Asia - Blame It On The Lawyers. That'S The Real Reason. Ask Any Employer Or Company. It'S Pretty Damn Hard To Tell The Chinese What To Do, No Matter If You Are A Harvard Law Graduate Valedictorian With A Good J'Wish Name.. The Chinese Can Tell The Greedy Scum Lawyers To Pound Sand. If A Ceo In This Country Does That, He'Ll Be In Court For The Rest Of His Life, With Hateful Lawyers All Over Him Like Flies On Poop.
Why Can&Quot;T We Reign In These Parasites, Once And For All??????????
Get a clue....
Elected officials have nearly always been mostly lawyers, dating back to the first English parliamentary elections.
Lawyers do no instigate lawsuits - non-lawyers do. When you or I come to a lawyer and wanting to file a lawsuit, the lawyer does as they're asked - it's up to a JURY to decide guilt or innocence. JURIES are the reason for outrageously-sized damage awards not lawyers.
Businessmen are the ones who use lawyers to conduct business - the lawyers do not decide guilt or innocence they leave that up to a jury. Our justice system depends on a well-educated and well-informed involved citizenry. The reason things are falling apart, is not because of the lawyers - it's because the population at-large (where juries come from) has become less-educated and more prone to knee-jerk emotionally based reactions or world views based on emotion not fact.
Jobs are being exported to Asia because a certain political party is pro-business & anti-union. The pro-business party has passed laws allowing "offshoring" and "right shoring" and H1-B visas every chance they got.
Contrary to popular belief, lawyers (especially criminal defense lawyers), are part of the checks and balances against an overwhelmingly powerful government... would you want the government to be able to decide guilt or innocence without thoroughly proving their case at a trial? Imagine where that would lead... without defense lawyers the government would very quickly become tyrannical.
