Some personal injury claims involve pregnant women who have come into contact with animals, such as sheep or other livestock, that are giving birth or have just given birth. These animals can carry infections, which can put the health and safety of pregnant women and their unborn children at risk.
Accordingly, a number of organisations, including the Department for Environment, Food and Rural Affairs (DEFRA), Public Health England, the Health and Safety Executive (HSE) and the…Continue

My grandmother’s Armenian Bible is falling apart—its cardboard covers are worn, the spine is broken, the first 48 pages are missing, and until recently it was held together by a thick rubber band. When the rubber band cracked and crumbled, I tied a bright satin ribbon around it to hold it…Continue

Thinking of you,I waited and waited into the stillness of the night,
Until dawn came and covered me with a mantle of golden light
It washed away all my wishes,hopes and prayers of last night
Along with a hundred things I wanted to confide.
I walked.I walked for miles.
Although I tried but in vain, your thoughts gently swept in.
All those moments, all those memories-
Flashed across my mind.…Continue

The Foundation for Medicare
Not to be confused or considered one of the same as the Medicaid program, Medicare is the United States government mandated nationwide program that mainly exists to provide medical coverage to American citizens over the age of 65. Since the program launched in 1965, it has since been revised to extend coverage to few more of the nation's residents that meet the necessary requirements. The additional qualified groups include…Continue

There are specific upgrades that make your home more attractive, speeding up the sales process. To gain useful market information, prospective sellers should visit other homes for sale in the neighborhood to understand what the competition looks like.

Curb appeal is the first impression
Given that the first impression a potential…Continue

An essay that ran in Salon Tuesday titled “I’m a self-publishing failure” recounts how one writer, John Winters, spent countless hours and dollars promoting his book online only to sell a handful of copies. Where did John go wrong? How can you avoid becoming a self-publishing failure?

I'm one of those people. I start hobbies - lots of them - and I never seem to follow through with any of them. It is my greatest flaw, to be a jack of all trades but none of which I am a master of.
Why is technically why I'm here at SheWrites. I desire to be a…Continue
