Atlanta Legal Aid welcomes attorney from UPS
Atlanta Legal Aid Society, Inc. recently welcomed a lawyer from United Parcel Service of America, Inc. (UPS), the world's biggest supply chain services and package delivery company. Ryan Swift is posted as a corporate-sponsored appointee at Atlanta Legal Aid Society. A lawyer at UPS headquarters, Swift begins a four-month assignment with the Legal Aid Fellowship Program. UPS is first of a kind in the nation to assign its attorney for such a long-term assistance.
Swift has been working as a paralegal in the UPS legal department for the past 10 years. At Legal Aid, he will report to its Cobb County office for four months, and simultaneously receive his salary and benefits from UPS as well. Teri McClure, UPS senior vice president, Legal, Compliance and Public Affairs, believes that partaking programs away from office turns UPSers into better managers. Atlanta Legal Aid serves low-income people with civil legal services.

Golfer attacks the gator to save his precious life
This is what happens when you ignore life-saving information on signboards. This time it read, "Beware of Alligator'. Posted by the pond authorities at the Lake Venice Golf Club, it seems that Bruce Burger, 50, missed on this vital piece of information, while trying to retrieve his lost ball from a pond on the sixth hole at the Golf Club. Consequently, an alligator, measuring 10 feet, 11 inches, caught hold of his right arm and dragged him into the water. Thankfully, luck seemed to be on his side, as he could release himself from the reptile's hold, by beating it up with his left arm. Burger, a resident of Lenoir City, TN, was then carried to the hospital, with no serious injury being detected. The counter-attack supposedly saved his life. It took an hour to capture the one-eyed culprit by seven Fish and Wildlife officers.
LawCrossing has the most listings of any job board I have used. It's actually a great site. The website had a lot of detail. It’s nice that you don't have to go through a recruiter if you don't want to. You can actually contact the law firm directly for the positions listed. LawCrossing had a ton of great features.
