    Financial elder abuse overview under California law

    in Legal

    Introduction


    Financial elder abuse is on the rise in California.  People are living longer due to advances in science, medicine, health, fitness and nutrition.  At the same time, "seniors" (those over 65 years of age - which is still relatively "young" if you think about it) are some of the sole survivors of the "mortgage meltdown" and they are oftens the victims of financial fraud and "elder abuse."  This husband and wife podcast discusses what elder abuse is, how to spot it, and the types of legal claims we handle as a California financial elder abuse law firm.


    Common perpetrators of financial elder abuse 


    1.  Attorneys (these professionals are in a position of "trust" and "confidence" and can unduly influence, coerce,  misinform and cause seniors to make very bad financial decisions that can affect real estate, and stock portfolios).  Attorney malpractice is another common claim in this area.  We have seen "counseling" that has resulted in the loss of substantial equity in residential and commercial real estate estate.


    2.  Car dealerships (Car dealerships can try to "steal your trade" or engage in "bait and swtich advertising" or sock you away in a car loan that


    3.  Friends


    4. Insurance


    5. Family (kids who see their parents as easy targets).  


    6.  Mortgage brokers (lenders and loan officers can sock a senior away - and take exorbitant loan fees - to steer an elder into an unconscionable predatory loan (ex. a negative amrotization or "option arm loan") or fail to advise as to the advisability (or non-advisablity) of a reverse mortgage.  These fees can be "taken" in bad faith resulting in serious daamges to an elder.

    In historic face to face, Obama, Castro vow to turn the page


    By JOSH LEDERMAN and JIM KUHNHENN 


    PANAMA CITY (AP) — President Barack Obama and Cuba's Raul Castro sat down together Saturday in the first formal meeting of the two country's leaders in a half-century, pledging to reach for the kind of peaceful relationship that has eluded their nations for generations.


    "What we have both concluded is that we can disagree with a spirit of respect and civility," Obama said. "And over time, it is possible for us to turn the page and develop a new relationship between our two countries."In a small conference room in a Panama City convention center, the two sat side by side in a bid to inject fresh momentum into their months-old effort to restore diplomatic ties. Reflecting on the historic nature of the meeting, Obama said he felt it was time to try something new and to engage with both Cuba's government and its people.


    Castro, for his part, said he agreed with everything Obama had said — a stunning statement in and of itself for the Cuban leader. But he added the caveat that they had "agreed to disagee" at times. Castro said he had told the Americans that Cuba was willing to discuss issues such as human rights and freedom of the press, maintaining that "everything can be on the table."


    "We are disposed to talk about everything — with patience," Castro said in Spanish. "Some things we will agree with, and others we won't."


    Not since 1958 have a U.S. and Cuban leader convened a substantial meeting.

    Floyd Mayweather Jr. Rejects $5 Million Penalty For Failed Drug Test

    in Sports

    It's has come to the publics attention that Floyd Mayweather has refused to agree to a $5 million penalty if either fighter were to fail a drug test either before or after the May 2nd fight. Manny Pacquaio is the one who requested for this fine to be included in the contract. The problem is that the contract has already been signed by both parties. However, there is a separate agreement that the United States Anti-Doping Agency will be overseeing random blood and urine testing for both fighters, terms for a substantial fine in the event of a dirty test are still being discussed. If neither fighter have anything to hide, thena agreement shouldn't be hard to come by. Even with that said, it should've been included in the original contract to avoid any outside negotiations.

    The Mysteries of Human Existence with NASA Engineer David Gaggin

    in Spirituality

    Are you curious about who you are and why you are living this life?


    We each see the world we live in and understand our place in it from a unique and personal perspective.This perspective is shaped by a variety of factors - the influence of our parents and previous generations, religious beliefs, scientific discoveries, philosophical viewpoints, and our level of metaphysical understanding. Most of our outlooks in this matter have been formed with a substantial amount of biases and prejudices. Most of us have not taken extensive personal journeys of discovery with completely open minds.


    Today's special guest David Gaggin has done that for us. With a scientifically trained mind he has.searched through an enormous amount of data and numerous different accounts and perspectives to create a realistic picture of who we are and why we are here. He says that enough evidence is available to convince even the most skeptical mind.


    In his groundbreaking book, The Endless Journey: A Unique Perspective on Mankind's Origin, Purpose and Ultimate Destiny, David Gaggin brings the truth to light for us after years of compiling research from every perspective he could think of. He explains why our world, one that seems chaotic, irrational, and evil, is not really that way - that it is just an illusion we are experiencing.


    David Gaggin holds a masters degree in Electrical Engineering. His successful career included working as an electrical engineer for Boeing, NASA, and the U.S. Army before he went on to create Cobham Defense Electronics Systems. Today he is here to share what he acquired through his quest for knowledge about the meaning of life.

    Cherubim Chariots - author Josh Peck explains higher dimension origins of UFOs

    in News

    For years, the extraterrestrial hypothesis has dominated the field of ufology. However, there is another theory that might provide more substantial answers to the UFO phenomenon. In Cherubim Chariots, researcher and author Josh Peck explores the fringe of the extradimensional hypothesis to show the stunning possibility that UFOs and their pilots originate from a higher dimension. Discover answers to paradigm-shifting questions, such as:



    Were extradimensional craft and other-worldly beings reported in antiquity?
    Who are the mysterious cherubim and what is their role in the affairs of mankind?
    Did nonhuman entities leave behind evidence showing their extradimensional nature?
    Are higher dimensions interacting with our own?
    Are there prophecies pointing to a possible return of extradimensional beings?
    What is our true origin?
    How do we prepare for what is ahead?


    Is there an "alien deception" in our future? Will it be at the hands of the New World Order - the global elite? Are we close to some type of "announcement" that aliens are among us?
