| World Traffic Accident Death Key Factors |

* Worldwide car accidents deaths: An unspoken staggering estimated 1.35 million people die each year as a result of road traffic crashes.

* Worldwide Accident injuries: A huge toll on families and the economy are 20 to 50 million injuries from traffic accidents injured annually.

* Road traffic crashes are a major cause of death among all age groups and the leading cause of death for children and young adults aged 5–29 years.

* Income & car accidents: My research shows that the risk of dying in a road traffic crash is more than 3 times higher in low-income countries than in high-income countries. More than 90% of road traffic deaths occur in low-income and middle-income countries. Road traffic injury death rates are highest in the African region. Even within high-income countries, people from lower socioeconomic backgrounds are more likely to be involved in road traffic crashes.

* Young male Vs. female driving: Males are more likely to be involved in road traffic crashes than females. About three quarters (73%) of all road traffic deaths occur among young males under the age of 25 years who are almost 3 times as likely to be killed in a road traffic crash as young females.

* Speed: Every 1% increase in mean speed produces a 4% increase in the fatal crash risk and a 3% increase. An increase in average speed is directly related both to the likelihood of a crash occurring and to the severity of the consequences of the crash. For example, In the serious crash risk.

* Pedestrians: The death risk for pedestrians hit by car fronts rises rapidly (4.5 times from 50 km/h to 65 km/h).

* Car-to-car side impacts: The fatality risk for car occupants is 85% at 65 km/h.

* The 2030 Agenda for Sustainable Development has set an ambitious target of halving the global number of deaths and injuries from road traffic crashes by 2020.

* GDP cost of car accidents: Road traffic crashes cost most countries 3% of their gross domestic product.

* Vulnerable road users: More than 50% of all road traffic deaths are among vulnerable road users: pedestrians, cyclists, and motorcyclists.

* Mobile phone usage while driving: Drivers using mobile phones are 4 times more likely to be involved in a crash than drivers not using a mobile phone. Using a phone while driving slows reaction times (notably braking reaction time, but also a reaction to traffic signals), and makes it difficult to keep in the correct lane, and to keep the correct following distances.

* Hands-free phones are not much safer than hand-held phone sets, and texting considerably increases the risk of a crash.

* Seat-belt wearing reduces the risk of death among front-seat passengers by 40−65% and can reduce deaths among rear-seat car occupants by 25−75%.

* Only 57% of countries require seat-belts to be used in cars by both front-seat and rear-seat passengers (38% of low-income countries, 54% of middle-income countries and 83% of high-income countries).

* The use of child restraints (which include infant seats, child seats and booster seats) can reduce deaths of infants by as much as 70% and deaths of small children by between 54% and 80% in the event of a crash.

Favor Home Solutions Buy Houses Fast in Orlando; We Buy Houses In Orlando

We Buy Houses, Sell my house fast, cash for houses

Are you looking to sell your house in Orlando? Favor Home Solutions is looking to buy more properties in and around Orlando fast for cash.

ORLANDO, FLORIDA, UNITED STATES, February 22, 2019 /EINPresswire.com/ — Favor Home Solutions has the answer for all the people that are thinking to themselves “I need to sell my house fast Orlando,” and the solution is extremely fast, simple, and stress-free no matter in which condition is the property that the seller is trying to get rid of. Selling a house via the usual channels can take a lot of time, efforts, and paying unnecessary fees to realtors and agents. Favor Home Solutions doesn’t require their clients to pay any fees whatsoever, and the sellers are the ones that have the final word when it comes to when they want to sell their properties.

Every seller that has one purpose and that is to sell their property can contact Favor Home Solutions in Orlando regardless of the reasons behind the need to sell the house. Immediate selling of the house is needed in various situations like when the house is listed for a long time but hasn’t been sold yet, when the house has damages due to fires or floods, when owners want to avoid foreclosure or they have mortgage problems, or when people are moving to a different location. Some sellers are going through a divorce or they lost a member of the family, they own unwanted property, or they just need quick cash for other reasons. The why is not important, what is important is that Favor Home Solutions will be there for their clients during the possibly hardest or happiest times of their lives.

And since the properties are bought in the state they are, sellers won’t have to do repairs, clean up the property, or even get rid of their tenants! Everything will be taken care of by the company. That's right, everything — we buy houses Orlando!

The procedure can be done very easily in just three short steps. The first step is for the sellers to call or submit their information on the company’s website. The conditions of the homes will be discussed, and the situation the sellers are in. The employees will make a plan with the sellers that will protect the best interests of both sides. The second step is the employees of Favor Home Solutions visiting the sellers’ homes to see the property. Sellers can even send pictures in some cases. If both parties agree on a certain price, then the third and final step is the seller choosing when they want to sell the house. The date can be as early as seven days after the agreement or 3-4 months after it. The goal of the company is to provide the best possible solution that will fit their clients’ needs.

Other places where Favor Home Solutions offers their services are Nashville, Chattanooga, Memphis, Clarksville, Murfreesboro, Columbus, Orlando, Huntsville, Birmingham, Baton Rouge, and Phoenix.

The positive reviews from satisfied sellers are countless, and one of them says:
“We were facing foreclosure on our condemned house in Chattanooga. We couldn’t even find a realtor that would help sell our house, we basically thought we would lose everything, until we found Favor Home Solutions. Caleb and his team literally saved my family’s lives with buying our house. I cannot thank him enough.”

Beneficial Law Firm Marketing Strategies that Actually Work

Law Firm Marketing Agency

What are some marketing strategies that will help law firms get more clients?

I've rounded up the top five legal marketing trends that you will need to include in your digital strategy if you want to compete with the other law firms out there successfully.”

— Mary Ann Fasanella, CEO ACE

PHILADELPHIA, PENNSYLVANIA, UNITED STATES, February 22, 2019 /EINPresswire.com/ — ++

The legal field officially reached over-saturation in 2009. Now, in 2019, it's unfortunate to say that the bulk of law firms are still feeling the effects of this trend. This has come to negatively impact partners in two particular ways: there's ferocious competition to get ahold of the best and brightest new talent, and it has become even more difficult to acquire clients.

How do I know this? Well, because it's the same topic of conversation I continue to have with senior attorneys and law firm partners over and over again.

1. Invest in lawyer-specialized content marketing and SEO
Search engine optimization (SEO) refers to the practice of enhancing your website to rank better on search engines like Google and Bing when people search for services your firm provides. Gone are the days when people would thumb through the Yellow Pages to find a lawyer. Now, when someone needs a particular service, they perform a Google search on their smartphone or use voice commands to instantly find what they're looking for.

This is why it's so important for your law practice to appear on the first page of Google's results. In fact, it's been found that the top five search results on Google receive 70% of clicks. (https://alphametic.com/seo-statistics-value)

And, probably the biggest SEO problem facing lawyers today is that their websites are not mobile-friendly. This refers to when a website is not fast to load on a mobile device, which results in the user exiting the page.

However, optimizing your website for mobile is only half the battle. There are also other aspects of SEO that need to be considered to improve your website rankings, including:

Adding a form of code to your website called "schema" which helps search engines understand the purpose of your website (https://schema.org/Attorney)

Optimizing internal pages on your site for specific keywords related to your firm's services

Including important, relevant keywords in all titles, images, and heading tags across the website

Optimizing all images on the website with keyword-driven descriptions

Content marketing, which I will explain in further detail later on in this post.

2. Broaden your online presence to include local SEO, PPC, social media, and video marketing
If you want to succeed in the law firm marketing world, you have to utilize all online real estate available to you. This refers to the platforms that you own, which can include your Google My Business listing, your firm's Facebook page, and more. You'll also have to work on collecting business reviews and starting some paid search ad campaigns (PPC).

3. Use your website as a continuous sales agent
People don't rely on traditional phone book methods to find local businesses anymore. Now, they simply pull up Google and search for whichever service they are in need of. And, with 46% of all searches today being local, is imperative that your website is equipped to handle any potential new clients that land there.

This means that if you want to successfully convert new talent or clients, your website needs to be fast, engaging, authoritative, and mobile-friendly.

4. Maintain your firm's reputation to use presence online for recruitment
Client reviews are one of the most important tools available to attorneys. When it comes to hiring someone for a service or even just making a purchase, I know the first thing that I personally do is check the reviews. And, I'm not the only one.

It's been proven that 72% of people say that positive reviews make them trust a local business more, and 93% of customers actually say that their buying decisions are influenced by online reviews.

This being the case, you can see why it's crucial to generate online reviews of your services if you want to convert new clients.

5. Keep track of all efforts and analyze everything you do
When it comes to marketing and advertising, time is money – and no lawyer wants to waste their efforts on strategies that aren't providing results. This is why you need to carefully monitor and measure each one of your campaigns to see what works and what doesn't.

Unfortunately, business owners tend to pay attention to metrics when they should be focused on Key Performance Indicators or KPIs. The KPIs that lawyers should be looking at when it comes to their marketing strategy are:

Total new clients
Cost per lead (CPL)
Return on marketing investment (ROMI)
Booking rate (from calls)
Lead-to-sale conversion rate

Jennifer Spor Transformational Coach to be Featured on CUTV News Radio

COEUR D’ALENE, IDAHO, UNITED STATES, February 22, 2019 /EINPresswire.com/ — Each one of us, out of the billions of people on the planet, is unique, with our own passions, experiences and skills. All that wisdom we've acquired is meant to be shared with others, in service to others. That is what transformational coach Jennifer Spor helps women tap into.

“When we can be our authentic selves, really, the possibilities are unlimited,” says Jennifer. “There's a big difference between understanding something and the ability to apply it in your life. That is what I help my clients with: how to actually apply that understanding in their lives and actually make that shift.”

Jennifer works with corporate women who are unfulfilled in their careers and feel called to make a bigger impact. They have reached a certain level of success but still feel unfulfilled. Jennifer helps her clients get to the root of who they are to find their passion and purpose.

“So many of us are a product of our environment or upbringing or beliefs that tells us success only fits into one specific box,” says Jennifer. “The women who work with me are feeling that call to change, they aren't fulfilled in their lives, they know that there's more out there than what they've experienced. But what holds them back is fear, fear of the unknown. So I work with them to get to the root of that fear. Then we teach them the mindset tools they need on a daily basis to move forward, progress, to shift those patterns, and forge a stronger connection with their intuition.”

No matter how dedicated we are to our personal development, every one of us has blind spots. Having the support of a coach can help us reach our destination and achieve our goals. It works so much faster with someone who has been in that position and knows how to navigate it.

“Anybody can tell you what the problem is, but unless you actually come to some sort of realization and buy into it, it doesn't stick,” says Jennifer. “When we go through this process, we are remembering who we always were. With clarity around their passion and purpose, I teach them to become powerful creators and how to start creating the life that they want and making life happen for them instead of letting it happen to them.”

CUTV News Radio will feature Jennifer Spor in an interview with Jim Masters on February 26th at 4pm EST.

Listen to the show on BlogTalkRadio.

What is Caregiver Burnout?

Comfort Keepers Philadelphia, PA..

Philadelphia Caregivers

We often hear the term "burnt out" but what does it actually mean?

There are so many ways to prevent caregiver burnout it's important to practice these methods.”

— Michele Berman, Owner

PHILADELPHIA, PENNSYLVANIA, UNITED STATES, February 22, 2019 /EINPresswire.com/ — ++

Understanding Caregiver Burnout
We often heard that a certain profession can cause a person to “burned out,” such being a police officer, chef or nurse. We sometimes forget about caregivers; a family member or friend who takes care of an elderly loved one. It’s hard to realize a caregiver can experience burn out unless you have been in their shoes. When you commit to taking care of a loved one, you will experience many changes, more so than just having your elderly parent move in with you, but the feeling of being “there” for him or her for all their health needs. This isn’t to say that caregiving cannot be a rewarding experience, but the danger of getting burned out is real and can happen to anyone.

Caregiver burnout not only affects a person mentally but also physically and emotionally. The physical effects are accompanied by a change in attitude, usually negative. It’s vital that you know the warning signs of caregiver burnout to prevent mental exhaustion and health problems. It can also affect your spiritual health when you feel that you have lost control over your life while caring for a loved one. Caregivers experience of a level of stress that can be detrimental to their overall well-being, including gaining weight and disrupting sleep patterns. If a caregiver is not proactive about preventing burned out, he or she runs the risk of not only becoming chronically sick but ruining the relationship with their loved one and/or family members.

Causes of Caregiver Burnout
The caregiver stress and physical issues stem from:

Unrealistic Expectations: It’s only natural that you want to ensure that everything is perfect for your loved one, including a positive attitude all the time. This is unrealistic because there will be caregiver responsibilities that you will dread. Also, if your loved one has Alzheimer’s, where mood swings are evident, the positive effect will go to waste quickly. It’s important from the very beginning to know what you are getting yourself into. Educating yourself on not only the responsibilities you will have but their lasting effects will help you be aware of what your loved needs and to ensure a happy home. Also, your healthcare provider can provide additional resources (e.g. fact sheets) on the disease your elderly parent is suffering from, such as Parkinson’s disease, or how to be an efficient caregiver.

Lack of Control: We cannot control every situation (e.g. a parent needing care), this also includes finances and time. Having this lack of control makes caregivers even more pressured to be the best caregiver to their loved one. Accepting that you cannot control everything that goes on your life and in the life of your loved one will make getting through the day much easier. And when your parent has a progressive disease, such as Alzheimer’s disease, there comes a point when you have to accept that you cannot care for him or her any longer. A nursing home or assisted living community may be the solution. Or, even an adult day care center. This doesn’t mean that you have given up or failed, it means that you have accepted the fact that you no longer have the skills to care for your loved one.

Unreasonable Demands. In today’s society, we all strive to be “perfect.” The need to provide excellent home care to an elderly parent or relative is no exception. We try to do everything for everyone, leaving ourselves drained. An example of an unreasonable demand is when a family member wants you to make a certain meal for your elderly parent. This creates an unreasonable burden on the you, the caregiver. Yet, you can also put an unreasonable demand on yourself as declaring yourself as the primary caregiver, where your parent is your exclusive responsibility. To relieve some of the stress, you should ask for help from not just your siblings but from support groups, such as Family Caregiver Alliance.

Unrealistic Goals. By setting unrealistic goals, you are setting yourself up for failure. Remember, you can’t be all things to all people. If one of your goals is to stick to a schedule, it won’t happen because emergencies can happen at any time. Or, plans fall through at the last minute. The number one goal is to provide a safe and comfortable home for your loved one.

Caregiver Burnout Can Be Prevented
There are many ways to prevent caregiver burnout, where some are more obvious than others. However, it really comes down to the caregiver actively seeking help – not just talking about it. To prevent burnout:

Talk to someone. It’s not healthy to keep your emotions bottled up. Eventually, they will take a toll on not just your mind but on your body. You can talk to a family member, friend or a co-worker. Sometimes it’s better to take to a stranger, such as a therapist or co-member of a support group. You also need to accept your feelings – this should be your mantra. You must remind yourself that you are not the only caregiver to experience guilt, anger, frustration … etc.

Schedule “self-care” time. This is easier said than done. But, if you don’t reserve time for yourself, you will wear yourself down. It can be anything from reading a book to taking a bubble. Bath. It can also mean getting out the house to meet up with a friend. It is important that you put it on your calendar. When you put it on your calendar, it signifies this time is just as important as taking your parent to his or her doctor’s appointment. If you don’t have someone to watch your loved one during your “self-care” time, you can arrange for respite care from a home health agency. This type of service gives caregivers a break. An in-home care aide will come to your home to care for your loved one.

We all plan on doing it, but we don’t. It has been proven that exercise releases endorphins that give you mood a boost. It is very easy for a caregiver get depressed or have anxiety when caring for a loved one. This can lead to unhealthy habits, such as having more than one drink a day, excessive smoking and over-eating. Over-eating can lead to obesity, which is one cause of heart disease. The American Heart Association offers an online support network for those caring for loved ones with heart disease or have suffered a stroke.

Stay healthy. Eating healthy and getting the proper amount of sleep are necessary to provide the care needed for your loved one. This concept also applies to your mind. There are many ways to reduce stress, including meditation and yoga. Also, don’t be afraid to ask your doctor for medical advice on diet and exercise.

Use new technology. Telecare has come a long way. According to Harvard Health, there are telecare devices that can keep track of a loved one’s activities. The cellphone makes caregivers’ lives easier by storing a loved one’s health information, providing guidance and serving as a tracking device. Sensors can be worn on the body to track vitals as well as dispense medicine.

Mistakes to Avoid When Starting your Blog with Kala McCrayer

Kala McCrayer

Like anything in life, blogging requires some practice to perfect. Avoid these mistakes with Kala McCrayer.

FAYETTEVILLE, NORTH CAROLINA, UNITED STATES, February 22, 2019 /EINPresswire.com/ — Starting a blog in 2019 is easier than ever. Years ago, when blogging was in its infancy, starting a blog meant paying for a domain name and getting an entire website designed. Today there are a number of different companies that will do it for you for free. All you need is an email address and the capacity to write and you’re off to the races. However, as blogging expert Kala McCrayer points out, that doesn’t mean that blogging is easy. There are a number of different pitfalls which new bloggers seem to constantly make, and with that in mind we’ve written this article to help you avoid them. Read more below.

Not getting a paid domain name

“A lot of websites offer free domains.” Kala McCrayer says. “There are a lot of benefits to this, especially when you’re starting out.”

Generally you’ll be able to create a fairly decent looking site and you’ll be able to start blogging straight away. However, there are a number of downsides too. Most companies that offer free domains such as WordPress and Wix, do so on the condition that they can attach a suffix at the end of your URL. This tends to look amateur and unprofessional. The amount of pages you can have is also generally limited. It’s therefore in your best interest to pay for a domain name that is entirely yours to allow you full creative freedom in crafting your blog.

Posting every day

Conventional wisdom tells you that more content is better, but according to Kala McCrayer that’s just not the case. When it comes to content, quality will always trump quantity, which is why it makes sense to post more infrequently but with higher quality content. If you’re in the position where you can post consistently everyday while still producing content of value, then by all means do it. But if you’re simply trying to pump out new articles for the sake of it, put them on the back burner and dedicate yourself to creating articles of high quality.

Writing like you talk

This is a cardinal sin in the blogging world. According to Kala McCrayer, a huge percentage of new bloggers are guilty of writing like they talk. When it comes to blogging, articles still have to be written in a somewhat formal manner. Of course it’s a creative sphere and liberties can be made, but generally speaking, no audience wants to read a blog post that sounds like a valley girl speaking.
