People Do What Before Getting Into Public Pools?

People Do What Before Getting Into Public Pools?

With the weather quickly heating up, many people are starting to pull their swimsuits out from their winter hiding spots. With California’s thousands of miles of coastline, there are plenty of places to go to the beach. However, the beach isn’t for everyone. Some people prefer to cool off without having to worry about sand getting everywhere. That is why some people prefer going to a pool.

In addition to the lack of sand at pools, they are often cleaner as well. The water is maintained by humans, instead of being left alone. However, despite the chemicals, mostly chlorine, put into pool water to keep it clean, one recent survey found that pools aren’t always as clean as one would hope.

Public Pools May Not Be As Clean As You Think

The clear blue water of pools often looks a heck of ...

Putting Chalk On Tires Deemed Unconstitutional

Putting Chalk On Tires Deemed Unconstitutional

One of the great things about our government is how laws can change. As our country grows and beliefs and ideas changes, our laws can adapt with the times. This has been done countless times over the course of America’s history and it continues to happen to this very day. In fact, an interesting change has recently taken place in regards to parking violations.

Most cities have pretty strict guidelines on when, where, and how residents can park their cars. These rules can change from city to city, and even street to street. However, the results are always pretty much the same: a small fine and/or the possibility of being towed.

Different cities and law enforcement agencies have different methods for how they monitor parking on city streets...

Are Nanny Cams Legal In California?

Are Nanny Cams Legal In California?

There is no denying that most parents only want what is best for their children. They want their children to be happy and successful. Unfortunately, in today’s fast moving and expensive world, it can be hard for parents to always be there for their child. Typically, people try to get trusted friends or family members to look after their children, but that isn’t an option for everyone. This leads to many parents hiring caregivers to watch over their children while they are away.

As much as parents should be able to trust the person that is watching over their child when they are gone, there is reason to be wary. There have been far too many cases where children were abused by the very people hired to take care of them.

As horrible as this is, advancements in technology have granted par...

Is Shoplifting A Felony?

Is Shoplifting A Felony?

If you know someone who recently got into trouble for shoplifting, you are probably very concerned about him or her. You wonder how much trouble a person can get into for shoplifting. How serious of an offense is it to steal something from a store or other place of business?

Well, the answer to that depends on what was stolen. If the item was something small or inexpensive, then the offense won’t be too serious. However, if something large or multiple things that have a combined total of more than $950, then things will be more serious.

Shoplifting in California is only a misdemeanor offense.

This is because most people do not steal things that are worth more than $950. If a person steals anything that has a combined total less than that, then they will only face a misdemeanor charge.

Modesto Bail Bonds

It is the digital age. This is a time when we rely on our cell phones and laptops to survive and get through each day. We live on social media to connect with friends, get invited to parties, and keep up to date on the latest news. If you ask older generations, who did not grow up with computers and the internet, they will say that our younger generations today are too attached to our digital devices, and they might be right in certain regards.

As useful, informational, and entertaining as the internet can be, it can also be cruel, whether it was ill-intended or not. Cyberbullying is a big issue.

Extending California’s Last Call From 2AM To 4AM

Modesto Bail Bonds

Just the other week it was announced that…

the Senate passed a bill to extend last call for alcohol service from 2:00 AM to 4:00 AM.

Now the bill is heading to the Assembly for consideration. One of the main pushes for the bill is its impact on the state’s nightlife culture and economy. By offering an extended last call, nightlife like the music industry can flourish even more.

At the moment, bars, clubs, and other venues cannot extend their last call, since the bill still needs approvals from other parties. However, if and when it is passed by all necessary parties, it gives venues the option to extend last call until 4:00 AM. Venues will not be required to do so if they do not wish to. In addition, the bill would give each community the authority to decide if they would want to exte...
