Dan Newlin started his career in the Midwest as an Emergency Medical Technician, then as a law enforcement officer. He moved to Orlando where he continued his law enforcement career while attending night classes at law school. Now, Newlin is head of one of the most successful personal injury law firms in the state of Florida.

There, he is excited to help the citizens of Chicago like he has for those in Orlando.

Throughout his career, Newlin has handled some high profile personal injury cases. He has won cases for clients who were suing insurance companies, workers’ compensation, or for medical malpractice. His firm also focuses on accident cases including auto, clip and fall, DUI accidents, and many others. In 2014, Newlin’s law firm won a record-setting case for a teen who had suffered from a traumatic brain injury after an accident in 2012.

Newlin said that he got the idea to create the number after how popular hashtags have become on social media platforms. He also knew that #Dan would be easy to remember, even if someone had just been in an accident. Newlin feels that hashtag phone numbers will be the wave of the future and he is embracing those changes.

The Transformative Agenda of Qnet Operations

Qnet (Instagram) is an online marketing firm based in Hong Kong. Its business initially focused on South East Asia. Today, it has expanded to other markets in India, Middle East, North Africa, West Africa, East Africa, Europe and Russia.

Being a direct selling business, Qnet has been in the forefront in championing for laws governing direct selling in markets such as India.

Qnet believes a good working environment can be established through that.
Currently, Qnet produces consumer goods and electronic segments from India. These include watches and energy drinks such as Nutriplus.

Guided by its philosophy of RHYTHM, which means raise yourself to help mankind, it has been able to give back to local communities and other international organizations.

Through its UAE branch, Qnet has supported the Rashid center which takes care of the needs of children. This is replicated throughout the regions that it does business in.
The company also gives an opportunity to innovative Indians who can come up with unique products. The requirement are that the products have to pass the quality test. If it does that, then Qnet provides a platform to reach customers.

A Penn State University Fraternity Is Suspended For Posting A Distasteful Facebook Page

Several Members Of The Kappa Delta Rho Fraternity Posted Photos Of Nude Women

There’s no doubt that male hormones are in full gear around the Kappa Delta Rho fraternity at Penn State, but don’t these horny boys follow the news? Someone should have told them to watch the short video of the SAE Fraternity at Oklahoma University debacle. Why the boys at Penn State want to share that disgraceful actions is anybody’s guess, but it’s safe to say they thought they wouldn’t get caught when they posted nude shots of passed out or sleeping women.

The frat boys tried to be discreet about their sexual fantasies. One of their pages was labelled “Covert Business Transactions,” but it was deleted when a victim discovered the page. But that didn’t stop the boys. Several frat boys created another page and named it “2.0”.

Evidently the pages drew some on and off campus interest. About 150 current students and alumni accessed the private pages. Posting nude photos and hazing pictures along with drug sales are not part of the code of conduct at Penn State stated Alexei Beltyukov. The Delta Rho chapter at Penn State was immediately put on suspension until the investigation is completed.

No one around campus expects the frat boys to get special treatment.

Microsoft Giving Out Free Upgrades to Windows 10

Microsoft wants to fight piracy promising to upgrade computers to Windows 10 for free for computers that have illegal copies of Windows 7 and Windows 8.

This is a big change in company strategy. Previously, Microsoft was fighting piracy with verification systems to determine if the software was legal and limit functions in specific Windows PCs.

As Sergio Cortes (Youtube.com) has learned, past January, Microsoft announced that Windows 10 will offer a free update for all users with Windows 7 and Windows 8. However, this time nothing was mentioned about pirated versions.

This does not mean that everyone with versions of this type may be updated at any time, as the company announced it will offer free update only during the first year of availability of Windows 10.

Microsoft hopes to legitimize all recent Windows PCs, as some studies have concluded that three quarters of the software in PCs today is not under an appropriate license, particularly in countries like China.

Although the Reuters report focuses on upgrading to Windows 10 for China, Microsoft confirmed that this will happen globally.

Microsoft announced that Windows 10 will be out in 190 countries in 111 languages ??this summer.

College Coaches Have To Be Honest

 

Commits leave colleges often when the coach that recruited them gets fired. Michigan has been flipping Nebraska recruits often, and they tried with another to no avail. DaiShon Neal was offended when the Michigan DL coach told his family that he would not be able to go to Michigan without football. According to Matheison and other sources, his family was offended and practically kicked him out of the house.

The problem with Mr. Neal is that he does not understand what it means to be a DL coach in college. These guys have to look after their players, they do not make as much money as head coaches and they want to keep their jobs. Mr. Neal, if you are not willing to list your GPA in an article about how offended you are that a coach made this insinuation, then you have missed the point. Michigan is a good school, and they are going to be honest with you about how hard you are going to have to work to remain eligible.

You can cry foul all you want, but you have to remember that your potential laziness in the classroom could cost this man his job. He has to be straight with you even though you think you should be pampered.
