A Legal Commercial Gone Wild in California

The Reeves Law Group asked:

The Sacramento bus crash in October has claimed its 10th victim with the death of a 51-year-old woman who died on Tuesday. Mourned by a large family including 15 children and stepchildren, Pia Xiong was given a traditional Hmong funeral.

The bus accident that took place on the 5th of October, occurred when the bus carrying a total of 42 passengers overturned, and fell into a watery ditch north of Sacramento. The bus was on its way to the Colusa Valley Casino resort with its mostly elderly passengers on board. Investigations are still underway into the causes of the bus accident, and so far no charges have been filed in the investigation. The driver, Quintin Watts, was sent back to jail in November for violating his parole conditions, and traveling more than 50 miles without first informing the parole officer in charge of his case.

The driver of the bus was initially the center of most of the investigations into the bus crash. There was plenty of intrigue to go around in the initial days of the investigation when it was first revealed that the bus owner Daniel Cobb had himself died in the bus accident. Then news reports revealed that Watts that has had a history of run-ins with the law, and had reportedly not even been trained properly as a driver because of the best car accident attorney in Elk Grove. The day of the accident, Watts’ distraught mother claimed, was the first day that her son had actually been driving the bus after the training. The “training” period involved a week of him accompanying another driver around, and observing him.

Watts’ criminal record was another cause for concern. What was a man with a criminal record involving jail time for credit card fraud, theft, and drug possession doing behind the wheel of a bus? Even his parents apparently didn’t have confidence in his ability to steer a vehicle full of passengers.

Besides Watts’ criminal record, much attention has been focused on the bus in question. Investigators encountered closed doors every time they tried to pinpoint ownership of the bus. Bus companies sometimes use a complicated network of deceit, registering the bus under different names or in different states to confound investigations in the event of a bus accident, and evade liability. California bus accident lawyers have seen that happen in more than one bus accident, and it was no different here.

For the families of the 10 people who have died in the bus accident so far, and the others who suffered catastrophic injuries when their bus overturned on a dark night, the fact that there have been no charges, and little progress made in investigations, must be extremely disheartening. These passengers were senior citizens who had a habit of taking a trip to a nearby casino regularly for a fun weekend. They didn’t deserve to be at the mercy of a driver who had a criminal record, and a bus company that didn’t even see fit to maintain proper records of its operations. Everything about this accident points to profits taking precedence over passenger safety, and people must be held accountable for it.

The Foot Massage Advertisement That Shook The World

scary massage

 

Teleco Massage Company was a small Taiwanese based company backed by Bellcorp Inc. –  Many people are not familiar with these two companies, but they were part of the largest foot massage scandals in the history of all massage related products in the entire world.  What was supposed to be a regular ad run on prime time television, was actually filled with subliminal advertising that cause panic and anxiety in some people… and chances are you have seen the ad before!

The ad was for back massagers on Massage Tut and the scandal was based on the fact that Massage Tut had been using subliminal ads to make people buy the product.  Now, many advertising agencies do this, and massage products are certainly no exception to the rule.  What was different about this massage advertisement was that it made people extremely anxious by flashing images only seen to the subconscious ad untrained eye!  After 72 people had to go to the hospital thanks to a little known psychological issue called Footfluenza, Attorney Pat Murphy of the  Global Advertising Monitoring Firm came up with a plan to make the biggest massage product law suit in the entire world.  The video on the case can be seen here, and is certainly one of the biggest scandals we’ve ever seen.

It’s nice to see that the good people of the International Advertising Defense Fund were able to stop the foot massage conglomorate from spreading any more needless propaganda, and we are extremely happy that this was the case.  We at MediaLibel will be monitoring future massage related court cases.

Social Media and Your Psychological Profile

twitter_psychology

According to self-proclaimed social media scientist, Dan Zarrella, people post more about sex than any other topic on social networking sites. He’s even created a website, TweetPsych that will scan your tweets and create a psychological profile based on the topics you tweet about. Topics include sex, learning, money, leisure, numbers, cognitive, past, positive, negative, social, thinking, emotions, time, media, anxiety, conceptual, present, primordial, constructive, future, senses, and self-reference. A chart is created and your results are compared to the other 12,000 psychological profiles that have been created, coming up with a percentage of how much more or less you discuss a topic in your tweets than others.

I decided to analyze my Twitter and it turns out that I tweet about sex 516% more than the average user! It says that I may have a preoccupation with sex, but in my defense, I am a relationship examiner. Sex is part of relationships, therefore, I MUST write about it. I found that I tweet about learning 150% more and I post positive tweets 59% more than others. For those who say I’m a pessimist, take that! On the opposite end, I post negative tweets 62% less than others, reference myself 67% less, and post about my past 68% less.

On a completely different note, Sarah Williams of Sarah Williams Real Estate – Austin Tx said that after she got a sale using Instagram she was immediately hooked on the concept of always being on her phone and posting. “It got to the point where I got extreme anxiety when I wasn’t on my phone.  Even when I was in the gym I seemed to be obsessing over my Twitter and Instagram accounts more than paying attention to the workout!”

This could theoretically be used as a dating tool for those who have a Twitter. Say you meet a guy online and you’re planning to go out with him and want a quick snapshot of what he feels important enough to tweet. Get his Twitter name and search him at TweetPsych to get a psychological profile. You may get clued in to the way his mind works, but be careful; you may not like what you find.

Raise awareness
