Drunk driving laws may not be tough enough

Many people in Pennsylvania might hear about how tough the laws against drunk driving are yet they still hear and read about many serious and even fatal accidents caused by drunk drivers. Even though the state lowered the blood alcohol content threshold for drunk driving from 0.10 percent to 0.08 percent 15 years ago, it seems law enforcement has not been able to stem the tide of deaths attributed to impaired drivers. This logically makes one wonder if the laws are tough enough.

Is late diagnosis still malpractice?

According to Popular Mechanics, tire blowouts are much more common starting from about mid-May and lasting to the early part of October.

Understanding assisted vaginal deliveries

If you or your partner is pregnant and preparing for labor and delivery, you will want to educate yourself about the various scenarios that may happen so that you are prepared to make fast decisions if you need to do so for the health of the mother or baby.

When this happens, some doctors recommend the use of other tools to help pull the baby out. This is called an assisted vaginal delivery.

There are a number of unique risks associated with the procedure that you should know about, whether or not you and your doctor have planned a C-section for your child's birth.
