Millennials did not drop from the sky either are they aliens who can easily penetrate the entire fabric of a society. They are flesh and blood, who happen to have been born between 1980 and 2000.

The millennials value system is unique, and it is defined by their desire for mentorship, relationship, control, and love for technology. Trust me I could go on and on about the noticeable qualities of this group of people. However, the remarkable thing about the millennials is their ability to transcend their value system into our daily lives and the marketplace. This powerful influence has been associated with their purchasing power and ability to influence the older generation. A recent study shows that millennials have a purchasing power of over 1 trillion dollars in the United State of America.

A good haircut is often considered the ultimate accessory for achieving the desired look of which choosing a hairstyle can be quite challenging especially when looking for something different from what you are accustomed to. However, like most situations on God’s green earth, there exist certain principles which when considered, makes the choice reasonably easier. Just like body shape is considered in dressing, face shape is a key factor when choosing a hairstyle. This can easily be extrapolated by taking the dimensions of the face with a tape measure; widths of the jaw and forehead, as well as length from one cheekbone to the other, are measured. Then measure the length of the face from the hairline to the chin and compare with the average of the measurements.

It is a wrong, yet common belief that indecision as regards what to wear and how to wear them is exclusively a female issue. It is now well recognized that a smart look whether in a casual setting or in a more serious environment like a ball, wedding or the office boosts confidence, which largely determines the quality of interaction between peers and even strangers. Selecting and buying quality men’s jackets may not seem like such a big deal for men because most times it all comes down to how you feel about the jacket at first glimpse and after trying it on. The real dilemma comes when it is time to wear them out for a function; what colour of shirt to pair it with, what type and colour of trouser would best compliment the jacket for your desired sharp look? Unfortunately, there really is not a straight-forward answer to these questions. It all depends on stature, hair colour, jacket colour and preferred style of dressing. Let us get down to it then;
It is natural for grieving families to seek some sort of compensation for loss of a loved one. These sought compensations aren’t always monetary but they provide some sort of closure or sense of justice especially when the loss can be attributed to the action (or lack thereof) of a person or group of people. It is pertinent at this point, to make a quick comparison for better understanding of the subject matter. The term ‘wrongful death’ is used in civil suits while ‘homicide, murder, manslaughter…’ is used in criminal suits. What this means is that either terminology, refers to the taking of life of an individual resulting either from the acts or omissions of another person or persons-artificial or natural respectively. It is general knowledge that when a crime is committed, it is a crime against the state and the prosecutor is most often than not, the Attorney General of the state. An individual cannot, except by a fiat of the Attorney General, institute a criminal suit against an alleged suspect. In criminal suits the likely result is imprisonment, death, or fines while in civil suits, the likely results are damages, declaratory orders or in rare instances, the offender may be committed to prison. As earlier stated, wrongful death is a facsimile of homicide and is a foreign concept to common law. It was recognised recently in the United Kingdom as a means through which relations/relatives of a deceased person, may institute a claim against a person alleged to have killed the deceased. Having understood the underpinnings of the term—wrongful death, the best way to handle this will be to sue, which obviously requires the services of a wrongful death lawyer. Wrongful death suits are by nature, really complex as such, special care and skill is an indispensable criterion of any legal practitioner handling it. These are points a lawyer should be mindful of when instituting a civil claim.

Medically, a person is declared blind when he becomes sightless in both of his eyes. And he is totally blind when he has lost his ability to see at all. Blindness is usually preceded by visual impairment or low vision which means that even with the help of visual aids (Like eye glasses, pills, contact lenses), Medicine or even surgery, the person still does not see well. Depending on the cause, visual impairment may be mild or severe. Going by the legal definition of blindness, in the United states alone, approximately 1.3 million people are legally blind. ‘Legal blindness’ in a person does not mean he cannot see at all, it just means his vison is impaired and he needs a lot of help in perceiving and focusing images. When you compare that to the statistics of folks from the sub-Sahara Africa where blindness is a source of major concern especially Cataract which is the leading cause of visual impairment. In the United states, the inability to see at least 20/200 in either eye with best optical correction is regarded as blindness. Normal vision is 20/20 Worldwide statistics shows that about 50 million people are totally blind and between 300 million to 400 million people have a visual impairment of some kind. 80% of visual impairment cases occurs in people over 50 years.
