Had An Accident That Wasn’t Your Fault?
It’s continuously hard finding evidence for something when there just simply is no verification for events that take place. Finding witnesses and finding the right words to say in an event of an accident can be merely impossible. It’s one driver’s word against the other, and it’s down to chance to provide you with the outcome you deserve.
The duty of a Process Server is to serve ‘due process’ on behalf of the Courts or someone proceeding with a legal case. There are responsibilities that come along with the job and it’s not an easy job at all. It is a very demanding role, where you can be faced with many different problems, issues and situations and the hours of work can vary, most work 12-15 hours per day, 7 days a week, juggling the physical Process Serving on the Respondent and then office work that comes with it.
Male and female prisons are split up along with many other categorized prisons there are over 100 in the UK alone. There are many people who don’t understand specific subjects inside prison; there are many advantages and disadvantages while being ‘locked up’.
Taking part in an apprenticeship is becoming more popular for people between the ages of 16-19. Finding and getting accepted for a job is something that you really have to strive for now. It’s getting harder as young people don’t want to stay in education or simply can’t afford to go to university and get themselves into a whirlwind of debt, leaving less opportunities and jobs for young people.
Private Investigation Agencies are becoming more popular in this day and age. They offer a number of services dealing with your legal work, private investigations and any other enquiries that you may have. It only takes one unlawful private investigator to make a mistake or break the law and it’s not only them that will face consequences it’s the client also. You. Ignorance is not a defense in law.
It has just been known that roboticists have built a million dollar man with fully functional working heart, pair of lungs and a face made from professional artificial skin products. It’s said the robot was made for a channel 4 documentary to show how to make a bionic man.
There is never going to be an ending to knife crime, but there’s always a promising light at the end of the tunnel to decrease knife crime numbers in the UK. The number of ‘knife crime’ incidents in 2012 decreased by an incredible 57%.
Much like Hani Abou El Kheir’s case, the most recent death through knife crime of 2013, could this have been avoided? People say they are using new schemes to tackle knife crime but are their campaigns and strategies really working. Websites, schemes, programs, projects and charities are just some of many ways the government feel that this is a way to help prevent knife crime. But in reality how many of these approaches make an impact?
Customer service plays a big part in the success of a company. I firmly believe that it can be the making and breaking of a business, and this has been shown no more vigorously in recent months than with the numourous large nationwide businesses that have gone into administration due to in my personal belief, poor customer service.
It is well known to any company owner that even despite cheap prices, it is good customer service that brings customers back to their store time and time again. Tech firm Apple is a key exhibit in this train of thought. They are by no means the cheapest company when it comes to their computers, their phones and their music players, but their customer service is above all, the best in the industry. If your iPhone breaks through no fault of your own, you return to the Apple store and 9 times out of 10, you will be walking out of that store with either a fixed phone, or a new phone. This level of customer service is unrivalled. I remember the old days when your Blackberry would break and you’d call the BTCellnet helpline, who’d ask you to return the handset to them in the post. You’d then wait two weeks (all the time without a mobile) whereby they would then send you back the same handset, kind of fixed, but not really. It wasn’t good enough back then, and it still isn’t now.
I can’t remember the last time I was speaking to someone who didn’t have a Facebook, Twitter or some sort of social media profile. Well, except for maybe my grandma, who gave up being ‘actually social’ a long time ago, let alone being ‘virtually social’. In fact, social media has taken over the world to such an extent that it has even become a form of ‘chat-up line’ in wine bars whereby you can simply say to a person; “Hey, do you have Facebook?” and you’re half way there.
But what’s becoming scary is the sheer level of private and personal information people are now freely volunteering on these social networks. Information that doesn’t need to be known by anyone other than yourself and immediate family, such as your date of birth, your home telephone number and your mothers maiden name, is being offered up by many in their ‘about me’ profile. And even more concerning, making it public for the whole world to see.
Despite what the figures would suggest, I don’t think there isn’t a single citizen of the United Kingdom who does not firmly believe that crime is on the increase in our country. It’s been a long held belief for as long as I can remember, and top of the thief’s agenda is high value personal devices such as the Apple iPhone and iPad.
But report the theft of your £500+ smartphone to the Police, and you’ll more than likely be met with a stone-faced civilian officer who files a crime report as slowly as possible and sends you on your way without the slightest intention to ‘investigate’ the crime at all. If this isn’t a genuinely held belief by the majority of us, please could someone put their hand up now…
Fortunately though, there have been some gigantic leaps forward in technology recently and virtually every new smartphone that comes out on to the market has built in GPS, front facing and rear facing HD cameras, internet access and e-mail capability. These features were put to interesting use during the tragic events of the 7th July 2005 in Britain, whereby general members of the public recorded the terrorist strikes that devastated our capital city using their mobile phone cameras and immediately became the first ‘Citizen Journalists’.
Victims of crime are now turning to the same technology though, and in much the same way are becoming the first in a new wave of what will become known as; ‘Citizen Detectives’.
