Tyre&Auto Southbourne Group Review: Why Car Exhausts Matter

At no time in the history of human civilization have we suffered more respiratory diseases than when we began using the combustion engine at the start of the Industrial Revolution. Today, the levels of pollution in major cities around the world have reached extreme levels. Think of such cities like LA, Mexico, Bangkok and Beijing and you can imagine the thousands of people who suffocate under the fumes expelled by millions of vehicles into the atmosphere.


With the introduction of alternative energy sources to operate vehicles, however, we are beginning to cope with this growing menace to human health. In the meantime, new techniques have been developed to minimize the effects of exhaust fumes from combustion engines.   


Here are some ways in which proper exhaust control can help:


1. Reduce noise level


A professional car servicing company can provide reduction of noise (which is a form of pollution) through proper design and installation of an exhaust pipe system. A broken exhaust pipe, a result of accidents or improper care, can increase noise levels. Immediate repair is required.


2. Direct exhaust away from passengers


The exhaust from a car is designed to be directed away passengers; hence, it is at the tail end of the car or raised high up to facilitate escape into the atmosphere. Any clogging or leaks will cause the exhaust to enter through windows or holes in the chassis. Determining this seemingly minor yet unhealthy fault can help owners experience a more comfortable ride.


3. Improve engine performance   


A defective exhaust pipe decreases the ability of the engine to maximize its burning capability, hence, diminishing its power and performance. In fact, a big percentage of an engine’s power is lost due to the inefficient disposal of the waste gases resulting from the combustion process. Think of a person’s sinusitis which prevents one from breathing out the carbon dioxide from the lungs. What we expel is as important as what we take in. So it is with a car.


4. Improves fuel consumption


With proper burning, fuel consumption becomes more efficient. It also means maximizing your money spent on petrol. A defective exhaust system reduces the mileage you get out of a liter of petrol you buy. 


In short, not only do we pollute the atmosphere with a faulty exhaust pipe system, we are practically burning money that virtually escapes from our pockets and enters ours lungs in the form of toxic gases and black soot. Controlling the quantity and the quality of exhaust fumes is every person’s responsibility to maintain a healthy environment.

Mossack Fonseca, Division Interview of Raquel Araúz, Esq. – IP Division

Mossack Fonseca, Division Interview of Raquel Araúz, Esq. – IP Division

On October 20, 2015, Raquel Araúz, Esq., the head of  Mossack Fonseca’s (MF) Intellectual Property Division, gave a highly informative interview to representatives of the MF Marketing Division.


Raquel, we would like our readers to get to know you; please tell us about yourself and your career prior to working at MF

My pleasure, I’m 38 years old, and for the past 10 years I have been working here at MF. I started out as a legal assistant for Attorney Sara Montenegro. I then began developing the Intellectual Property (IP) Division with the guidance of Attorney Joanna Soto. I have been the director of the IP division since its inception four years ago.


Prior to joining MF, I spent several years working as an IP executive assistant, specializing in managing and protecting trademark portfolios.


Please tell us about your legal and continuing education

I attended the Latina University (Universidad Latina) in Panama where I studied law and political science. I have been a member of the International Trademark Association and the Inter-American Association of Intellectual Property for the past six years. The International Trademark Association is a congress that brings together around 10,000 IP agents and lawyers. A group of our lawyers, along with the IP Division have been working really hard with these two associations.


Last year, for the first time, we attended the International Anti-counterfeiting Coalition meeting―they are an organization focused solely on combating product counterfeiting and piracy. We also regularly attend local seminars and congresses to continually update our knowledge base.


In May of this year, my colleague Attorney Li An Chong and I were invited by the Panamanian consulate in Venice to talk about our complete range of legal services, as well as IP matters. We discussed the benefits of trademark registration with the Venice Chamber of Commerce and the Verona Chamber of Commerce. In addition, Attorney Amauri Batista is a member of the International Offices Committee and the International Trademark Association.


Please tell us more about your team here at MF

I am fortunate to have a talented and highly committed team. I have an extremely able attorney, Jorge Gutierrez, who recently earned his master’s degree in litigation procedure. I also have a business administrator, Milena Pinilla, who is my IP analyst, and Eric Carvajal who is my legal assistant―he is in charge of monitoring our litigation process before the court. The team works directly with and is supported by a truly outstanding group of lawyers in our Legal and Trust Services Department.


What are the benefits of going to MF instead of another provider?

First and foremost, our dedication to quality service: MF is the only ISO 9001 certified law firm in Panama. We have over 500 staff members across every continent, and more than 35 years of experience. Our clients can register and protect their trademarks, patents, and copyrights not only in Panama, but in any country in the world, through our allied offices. We offer the highest commitment and most competitive costs and to our clients.


How would you define intellectual property?

It is the development of ideas, the creation of the mind, our inventions, dreams, art, and designs that should be protected―to make them unique. It is important to protect the rights over those designs, products or services―for many reasons―to avoid third parties taking advantage of your work. That’s the way I see it, I see it in a very passionate way. Keep in mind that intellectual property goes beyond simple trademark registration―it is everything that comes after that, and we work hard to ensure that no one else can take advantage of our client’s dream.

Gibson and Associates Solicitors: What Is Professional Negligence?

Professional negligence is where someone who has been trained in a professional to offer help and advice gives the wrong advice. If the advice you were given results in a loss or injury, then you may have a claim for professional negligence.

There are many different professions that you may come across that could be negligent in their approach to your situation. This can include:

" Doctors

" Solicitors

" Barristers

" Surveyors

" Accountants

" Architects

" Conveyancers

" Financial advisors

Professional negligence involving doctors is more commonly known as medical negligence, but it amounts to the same thing.

The losses or injuries involved with professional negligence can be life changing, and it is important to remember that it is a requirement of many professional bodies that their members have insurance in place to cover them in the event of professional negligence claims.

What should you do if you think you have been given the wrong advice from a professional? Your starting place should be to talk to a solicitor about the circumstances of your situation. A solicitor who specialises in professional negligence can quickly tell you if you have a claim.

Whilst you may not feel much like trusting another professional for advice, especially if you were given negligent advice from a solicitor but you should understand that most professionals are conscientious and will act in your best interests.

If a solicitor identifies that you have a professional negligence claim they will discuss you the available options to fund your claim and once you are successful in making the professional negligence claim, you will get your legal costs back.

In addition, you will receive compensation that should put you back in the situation you were in before the negligent advice and also compensation to alleviate the issues the advice has caused you.
