Five Serial Killers that Terrorized Michigan
When it comes to serial killers, a few key examples come to mind. However, the terrifying truth is that serial killers have always been around and there have been way more than just a few. Additionally, serial killers have affected every state. Michigan is certainly not an exception, as it has been terrorized by numerous serial killers throughout the years, including recently. Below is a brief discussion of five of the more notable serial killers that have terrorized my home state.
What is a Crash Investigation Site?
I frequently drive on expressways in Michigan and I have recently been beginning to take notice of blue signs that say "crash investigation site" and then direct you to an upcoming location, which is usually a little area on the shoulder of the road that appears to be meant for cars to pull over and park in. After wondering about these signs and areas for a while, I recently became curious enough to actually look into what these are and what they are designed for. I wasn't sure exactly what I would find, but, as it turns out, the answer is that these things are actually very simple yet also incredibly practical and important.
The Oakland County Child Killer: The Story of a Lesser Known, and Uncaught, Serial Killer
We all know about certain high profile serial killers like BTK, Ted Bundy, and Jeffrey Dahmer, but there are countless more out there that are lesser known, and sometimes unidentified. One lesser know serial killer is the Oakland County Child Killer, an unidentified murderer who committed heinous acts against children in the late 1970s before vanishing. This vicious killer has four confirmed victims with a couple more unconfirmed victims that are possibly linked to him (or her, or them).
John and his wife Mary lived on a small, quiet fishing lake with only a few other houses around them. They were in their early 60’s, retired and loved nature. The small house was perfect for them, plus it had an extra bedroom and a big yard for when their kids brought the grandkids. John’s passion in life was fishing and every night john went out on the lake to fish and then the next day him and Mary would spend hours cooking the fish, they were living the life.
The story of Secretary Frances Perkins, the first woman to hold a Cabinet position
Recently there has been a lot of attention being paid to barriers being shattered by women and minorities (as well as to the various barriers that remain standing that need to be shattered). In light of this, and of the fact that it is currently Women’s History Month, let us reflect on a somewhat lesser known example, the life and career of Frances Perkins.
Dispelling the Myth that Law School is About Pure Competition
When you think of law school, what comes to your mind? For many the scene they imagine is one of bitter competition and people trying to sabotage each other to get to the top. While that may be reality for some, it isn’t for most, at least it shouldn’t be. Instead, law school should be a place where people help each other to succeed and where students help each other to manage and cope with the stress of law school just as they should do for each other when they are in practice.
The boss’s book of lies
As Alexander lounged on a Bahamian beach sipping one of those tropical, fruity drinks with an umbrella in it, he took advantage of the relaxing calm to reflect on how and why his life had changed so drastically in the past few days. After all, at the beginning of this week the 23-year-old resided in a stuffy studio apartment in a city the cost way too much to live in and held a job he dreaded at the bottom rung of the corporate ladder at a Fortune 500 company. Now, he could travel the world and enjoy life, financially secure in the knowledge that each week his now substantial bank account would grow due to the fact that despite the fact that he never had to step foot in the office again — and wouldn't be welcome if he did — Alexander was now by far the highest paid person in the company. And all because he had stumbled upon that little black book.
The Importance of Making Lists
The Importance of Making Lists We all make lists, whether in electronic or paper form or, as I do, some combination of both. Surely most of our phones are filled with lists and our offices and homes with notepads full of checklists, as well as sticky notes covering our desks and computers. Lists are a vital tool for time management and for making sure everything you need to get done gets done. However, they are only an effective tool if they are properly utilized. In order to properly utilize lists, one should be aware of the various types of lists and the proper methods, tips, and tricks for using the tool efficiently.
