Truck Accidents

Because of their weight and size, big trucks can cause accidents that have devastating consequences for everyone involved. The serious injuries and vehicular damage that often result from truck accidents can lead to major medical bills, lost wages, expensive car repairs, and debilitating pain.

Every year, around 4,000 people are killed in crashes involving large trucks, and thousands more suffer serious injuries. In 2016, crashes involving commercial vehicles led to 584 deaths and over 1,400 incapacitating injuries in Texas. The motorists who suffer the most devastating consequences of a truck crash are the occupants of the smaller vehicle.  Infographic provided by


Interesting facts about roulette. American and European

The French word for ‘little wheel’ is Roulette. The history of roulette goes back to 1655 in France where Blaise Pascal, one of the most renowned mathematicians created a primitive form of roulette wheel as a part of his experiments. One of his friends saw great potential in this invention as a gambling machine. The first modern-day Roulette first appeared in 1796, and since then Roulette has been ruling the casino businesses across the globe.

The popularity of this game can be attributed to its simplicity and ease with which this can be played. It is based on sheer probability, guesswork, intuition and chances. Roulette therefore doesn’t require the player to possess any special skill to play. One is supposed to predict the pocket number where the ball will land when the wheel stops rotating. To further enhance your chances of winning, you can bet on a combination of numbers too.

The American and European versions are the two most popular versions of this game and the Casinos are likely to have either one or both versions, thus the player should be aware of the basic difference between the two. The American version has 38 pockets whereas the European has 37. The American version comes with two zeroes compared to only one zero on the European version. The American version is played with chips of different colours whereas the European version is played with single coloured chips. The European version has the option of EN PRISON Rule whereas the American version doesn’t have any such rules. The soaring success of this game will continue to mesmerize the young and seasoned players alike due to its vintage charm.

Large Truck Crashes in Pennsylvania

Tractor-trailers are a common sight on the highways of Pennsylvania and New Jersey, and all around the country. With almost 70% of the nation’s commercial freight being delivered by trucks, the trucking business is still one of our largest and most competitive industries.

Unfortunately, the competitive nature of the industry often leads trucking companies to put pressure on their drivers.  Sometimes they will impose unrealistic schedules in the name of making quicker deliveries. In order to meet these high demands, many truck drivers operate their vehicles under dangerous circumstances, making 18-wheelers a growing threat to other motorists on the road.

People always gambled: On street corners, in private homes, on ships, in clubs … Even archaeological excavations show that cavemen play games with dice from bones. However, the first continental casino in the world opened in Venice, in 1638. You can visit this building, which is known as Casino di Venezia, as a museum today. Even the “casino” name was used in here for the first time. (This word is Italian and means “pleasure building”.) There were only card games here because the roulette had not been invented yet. In 1856, the Monte Carlo Casino introduced roulette to the world as a game. The vast majority of card games were invented in Spain, and almost all of the table games were invented in France. The roots of many games we play today depend on Europe and have a history of nearly 200 years.
