Too many dog owners fail to educate themselves about the particular lifestyles their pets will require in order to be healthy and friendly. For example, if a dog whose breed is known for an active lifestyle is chained to an anchor in a yard, then there is a good chance that the animal will develop aggressive tendencies. Dog owners can also neglect to properly socialize their pets, and unfortunately, serious dog bites often result.

On Sunday night, San Diego residents set their clocks back an hour, gaining an hour of sleep but essentially losing an hour of daylight.

The commercial vehicle industry is highly regulated in the hopes of preventing catastrophic accidents. Regulations apply to bus and truck companies in regard to vehicle maintenance, drivers' hours and other things in order to ensure that these massive vehicles pose as little of a safety risk as possible.

Victims of traumatic brain injuries can experience a number of conditions or symptoms - some of them long-term and others short-term, and some of them that show up right away while others are revealed much later. Because of the varied effects of brain injuries, and the fact that brain injuries are not completely understood by the medical community, it is very difficult to assess the true cost of brain injury treatment. Those who sustain brain injuries in California should always seek medical treatment as soon as possible, and they should also seek legal representation in order to obtain compensation for medical expenses from any responsible parties.
