The Miami Hurricanes executed an 8-lateral last second play on a kickoff return to defeat Duke 30-27 in the wildest ending you’ll ever see. Miami’s Corn Elder took the the ball into the endzone but it was a full team effort on the play that helped the Hurricanes come away with Larry Scott’s first win as the interim head coach.

The Atlantic Coast Conference (ACC) is a collegiate athletic conference in the United States in which its fifteen member universities compete in the National Collegiate Athletic Association (NCAA’s) Division I, with its football teams competing in the Football Bowl Subdivision (FBS), the highest levels for athletic competition in US-based collegiate sports. The ACC sponsors competition in twenty-five sports with many of its member institutions’ athletic programs held in high regard nationally. ACC teams and athletes have claimed dozens of national championships in multiple sports throughout the conference’s history. Generally, the ACC’s top athletes and teams in any particular sport in a given year are considered to be among the top collegiate competitors in the nation. The ACC is considered to be one of the six collegiate power conferences, all of which enjoy extensive media coverage and automatic qualifying for their football champion into the Bowl Championship Series (BCS). With the advent of the College Football Playoff in 2014, the ACC will be one of five conferences with a contractual tie-in to an “access bowl”, the successors to the BCS.

Founded in 1953 in Greensboro, North Carolina, by seven universities located in the South Atlantic States, the conference added additional members in late 1953, 1979, 1991, 2004, and 2013. The 2004 and 2013 additions extended the conference’s footprint into the Northeast and Midwest. The most recent expansion in 2013 saw the additions of the University of Notre Dame, the University of Pittsburgh, and Syracuse University. In 2012, the University of Maryland’s Board of Regents voted to withdraw from the ACC to join the Big Ten Conference. On November 28, 2012, the ACC’s Council of Presidents voted unanimously to invite the University of Louisville as a full member, replacing Maryland.

Goodwill of Southern Nevada Helps Veterans – 844-292-1318 Nevada legal aid

A ,000 NWP Founders Gift will be awarded to this year’s runner-up, Helping Hands of Vegas Valley and James Seastrand Helping Hands of North Las Vegas.

“Each and every year presents a challenging decision for our members to select which agency is the recipient of our grant,” NWP president Carrie Henderson said. “This year was no different.

Right now, roughly one out of every seven veterans in Nevada is unemployed,” said Steve Chartrand, president & CEO of Goodwill of Southern Nevada. “Helping someone find a job is truly life changing, and we are grateful to Nevada Women’s Philanthropy for providing seed funding to develop this much-needed program in our community.”

In 2011, Salvation Army of Southern Nevada received a grant for 5,000 which it used to rehabilitate its emergency homeless shelter and medical clinic.

Veterans Treatment Court Webinar – Session 1 – 844-292-1318 Mississippi legal aid

Attorneys, Judges, and Court Personnel as First-Responders: Strategies to Identify and Mitigate Trauma Among Veteran Participants with PTSD and Operational Stress Injuries in Veterans Treatment Court Settings – Forensic stress, which is generated solely by involvement in the criminal litigation, often aggravates symptoms of existing mental health conditions for veterans facing charges. It impairs the defendant’s abilities to make reasoned legal decisions and challenges attorneys and other professionals in the justice system to identify and counteract these powerful forces. This Webinar describes methods to assist attorneys and other members of a treatment team in diverting the client from his or her own symptoms – not only from confinement. It also identifies some risks inherent in the professional’s exposure to a Veteran’s own traumatic experiences.

For all participants, the Webinar introduces the concept of “Psycholegal Softspots” as particular aspects of criminal litigation that are known to trigger stress reactions, explores “Psychological First Aid” as a vehicle to mitigate crises, and discusses PTSD trigger awareness plans as practical tools tailored meet an individual participant’s unique needs in a Veterans Treatment Court program. For attorneys, the Webinar also previews ethically acceptable interventions that do not transform the lawyer into a mental health professional and identifies the hallmarks of effective collaboration with mental health professionals during the course of the representation.

Major Seamone is a Professor and Director of the Legal Writing Program at Mississippi College School of Law. He also serves as a Major and Senior Defense Counsel in the United States Army Reserve. During his tours in Iraq, Germany, and at domestic military installations, he participated as both a prosecutor and defense attorney in sexual assault, complex death penalty, and other felony criminal cases involving defendants with PTSD. Major Seamone has written extensively about treatment-based sentencing alternatives in military courts-martial proceedings and the use of civilian Veterans Treatment and Mental Health Problem-Solving Courts by military organizations and commanders. He is actively involved in the development of a standardized curriculum to assist family court judges in better understanding the unique needs of military families.

Sound Advice: Legal Aid for Veterans and Defendants in Debt Collection – 844-292-1318 Iowa legal aid

According to U.S. Census Bureau data, about 123,000 D.C. residents — that’s one in five — are living in poverty. Chief among the reasons why so many DC residents live in poverty is a constricted job market due to the great recession. In addition, some people are not able to work because of physical or mental disabilities.  And many of our neighbors who are struggling with poverty are veterans, people who have served our country.

That’s where the Legal Aid Society of the District of Columbia comes in.  Through the generous support of Equal Justice Works Americorps and the Skadden Fellowship Foundation, Legal Aid has been able to work on a broader range of poverty-related problems in DC by hiring two attorney fellows. 

Dean Shelley Broderick of the University of the District of Columbia David A. Clarke School of Law interviews Ashley Waddell Tingstad, Skadden Fellow who works to protect District residents from unfair and deceptive debt collection practices and Nina Wu, Equal Justice Works Americorps Legal Fellow who represents veterans who have been wrongfully denied government benefits.

If you are a disabled military veteran, you may be entitled to Veterans Benefits. The injury and disability attorneys at d’Oliveira & Associates are working with experienced VA benefit lawyers, who will work to get you the benefits and support you deserve as a service member who has helped our country.

Every year, thousands of disabled veterans, who need and deserve government benefits after all that they have been through serving in our armed forces, file legitimate claims for these benefits, and ultimately their claims are denied. It is not uncommon for the government to deny claims for Veterans Benefits even where these benefits should be granted to a completely deserving applicant. These applicants often have serious conditions, both mentally and physically, including: depression, Post-Traumatic Stress Disorder (PTSD), burns, scarring or disfigurement, amputations/loss of limb injuries, paralysis, and other major complications. These conditions range from partially to totally disabling for the affected individual, and those who are suffering deserve benefits.

The Veterans Benefits system makes monthly payments to eligible men and women who have been disabled during military service, the amount varying depending on the severity of the disability. There are strict eligibility requirements and a very specific, thorough application process to complete. Recipients are often compensated for: disability, education/training, home loans, life insurance, pensions, and survivor benefits.

If you are a disabled veteran or active duty member who has been denied benefits, you should speak with an experienced VA Benefits attorney. Denial of applicants is common, so qualified lawyer may be able to offer helpful advice to determine eligibility, and eventually receive benefits. Our firm maintains joint responsibility with our VA benefit affiliates over these types of cases, and we charge no legal fees unless you obtain a settlement or award. Feel free to contact us by phone at 1-800-992-6878, visit us online at www.good-legal-advice.com, or schedule an appointment to come into any one of our fifteen office locations across Rhode Island and Southeastern Massachusetts.
