Book Lovers Prize Pack Giveaway

Book Lovers Prize Pack Giveaway
I love books, I admit it, I actually have a reading addiction.
I love the perks of having a blog that allows me to read books for free. I find it hard to go to a book store and pay $20 for a book that I will read once. The fact that I'm a very fast reader doesn't help. I usually finish a novel in a day or two, so that can be a pretty expensive hobby. I consider it a hobby because it is something I do for myself that I enjoy. I know high school turned some of you off to reading, but I assure you, if you find themes that you enjoy, it can be great. I don't know how many of you are light readers or even non-readers, but this is a great way to try reading again!
  
I have posted reviews on the Haven series (first 2 books) and The Sky series (first 2 books) and I'm excited to be able to offer some giveaways to my readers. You can read my review on the Haven series here and the Sky series book 1 here and book 2 here. One winner will receive digital copies of both books in the Sky series and an audio version of the book Haven: A Stranger Magic. I am a part of World Book Night and so I will also be giving away a softcover copy of Diane Ackerman's novel The Zookeeper's Wife. What is World Book Night? World Book Night is an annual celebration dedicated to spreading the love of reading, person to person. Each year on April 23 –Shakespeare’s birthday– tens of thousands of people in the U.S. go out into their communities and give a total of half a million free World Book Night paperbacks to light and non-readers. I was chosen to give this book.
    
There is a brief synopsis of the book here.
Good Luck!
The contest runs 4/30-5/12 and is open to US residents 18+. No purchase is necessary and there will be one winner. Winner will have 48 hours to respond or another winner will be chosen.

Have You Been the Victim of Medical Malpractice?

Have You Been the Victim of Medical Malpractice?

Medical treatment should be an experience that patients are comfortable with – from the initial interactions with the office staff and the nurse encounter, to the visit from the physician.
Unfortunately, with the rise of medical malpractice cases over the past couple of years, it’s apparent that the process and integrated systems involved with medical logistics raise concerns in effectiveness.

Most of the mistakes performed by doctors, nurses, and office personnel are unintentional human errors that produce minor repercussions. But every now and then, a few instances where medical malpractice occurs causes death or serious injury to patients and families involved in the process.

If you feel that you’ve been violated or subjected to adverse conditions by medical groups, please act according to this article and understand that you have rights.

How Do You Know When Something is Wrong and When Do You Take Action

Get Evaluated By Another Source

One of the best ways to build a case against a certain inpatient or outpatient center is to ask another doctor in a similar field of study to evaluate the results of the operation or diagnosis. You may want to get a second or third opinion on the matter, depending on how serious the situation is to your overall health.

Other doctors in similar fields will be able to provide clarity and help create a case against the inpatient or outpatient center at risk. Most malpractice medical lawsuits are won on the basis of medical advice from other third-party medical advisors and results cultivated by other specialist in the same line of work. Make sure that you make as many records as possible in your evidence discovery so you may use as much information in the court of law.

Make Sure That You Hire the Proper Lawyer

In a medical malpractice suit, depending on the party that you’re suing, making sure that the lawyer representing you has a track record of successful malpractice lawsuits is essential.

Many lawyers will try to convince you that they’re the best man or woman for the job, but then cannot deliver when the hospital or outpatient facility you are suing has strong resources of their own. Pick the right lawyer, invest the money in a good track record and attempt to settle outside of court. Majority of malpractice lawsuits never see the court room in the first place.

Big medical companies want to settle outside of the court room.

It’s All About the Evidence

If I was trying to blackmail someone, I would produce compelling evidence against them that would make them do anything to compensate me for the leverage I have provided. The same action pertains to medical malpractice lawsuits. If you have compelling scientific evidence that malpractice has occurred within your case, you will always win through a settlement.

If a medical company knows that they are going to lose in the court battle, they will be anything to save costs involved with prosecution. Ensure to ask for your medical history records before filing malpractice claims against the medical party and obtain the best information possible to leverage a settlement. The more severe the situation, the greater damage compensation you will most likely receive.

Sriracha Cocktails with Sobieski

If you didn’t panic and purchase your local grocery store’s entire supply of Sriracha after news broke that factory operations had ceased this winter, I bet you know someone who did. Sriracha is hot, both literally and figuratively. It seems everything from potato chips to lip balm has been flavored with it, and science tells us it is more than just its taste that makes people so crazy for it. The potent compound capsaicin found in chili peppers triggers a reaction which leads your brain to believe you have been burned, thus releasing feel-good chemicals (endorphins) to cope with the pain. If that is more than you wanted to know, how about it just tastes good! And now, Sobieski Vodka brings you that burns-so-good feeling in a whole new way - in your cocktail!
Dante’s Essence:
½ oz. fresh-squeezed orange juice or half an orange
1 teaspoon Sriracha
1 ½ oz. Sobieski Vodka
¼ oz. lime juice
Dash orange bitters
Wheat beer
Orange twist

Muddle half an orange and combine with 1 teaspoon Sriracha. Add Sobieski Vodka, lime juice and orange bitters. Shake and strain into a martini glass or pour over ice in a highball or beer stein. Top with a wheat beer and garnish with orange twist.
The Kick-Start:
1 ½ oz. Sobieski Vodka
¼ oz. vanilla liqueur
¼ oz. lime juice
¼ oz. cranberry juice
Drizzle of Sriracha
Dash simple syrup
Lime wheel

Combine all ingredients then shake and strain into martini glass or high ball over ice. Garnish with a lime wheel.

Jason liked the cocktails better than I did, as he likes spicy things. But they were certainly different and fun to try!

How to Make Sure Your Garage Doors Are Safe

Garage doors can suffer damage from accidents, cold weather, or just the passing of time. Your Atlanta garage doors see a lot of use each day—many families use the garage as their primary entrance to the house. However, garage doors are generally the largest moving object in your home, and they can be dangerous if you don’t take care of them. As often as you use them, you want to make sure that they’re as safe as possible by checking them regularly. Broken garage doors can damage your vehicle or even injure a member of your family. For major repairs, call a company like Elite Overhead Garage to make sure the job is done right.

Common Garage Door Problems
Many problems with Atlanta garage doors have to do with the track that guides the door into position. If this gets bumped, it can make it difficult to open or close your door. Or the whole track might shift out of position because of a loose screw. Luckily, most issues with the tracks are easy to fix on your own. Simply work your way down the track, tightening loose screws as you go. Straighten any bent or dented sections with a rubber mallet. It also helps to clean and lubricate your tracks regularly—along with all your garage door’s moving parts. This helps prevent rust and keeps your door from sticking as it opens and closes.

When to Get Professional Help
Sometimes, the problem with your garage door might lie with the spring. Springs can loosen over time, or they may become rusty and difficult to move. In this case, you should seek out a company like Elite Overhead Garage for your garage door repairs. These springs can be extremely dangerous, because an enormous amount of tension rests on them. If they snap, they can cause serious damage to you and your property. Professional contractors can also install safety features on older garages. One popular safety feature is a sensor that can tell if a child or toy is in the way of the garage door, and will stop it before it closes and causes an injury.

Hee hee. I may be a few days late with these recipes, but they are good anytime, not just on Dyngus Day!
