LAW OFFICES OF ROBERT L. FIRTH w/ Robert Firth re: 68910 Adelina Road, Cathedral City, CA. 92234.
– DISCUSSION of the legal system and court goings-on in New York. Report that the prosecution has a hard case to make.
– DISCUSSION of all the legal issues in the media right now.
– QUESTIONS FROM “JOEY PALS”
1. Was Amazon charged w/ racial issues? (Yes, happens quite a bit. Still in the court system. Non-union shops, such as Amazon especially get sued.)
2. What was the legal dynamic of the issue w/ Graceland? (Was a real estate “hack” for a foreclosure. A judge returned Graceland to the Presley family and saw it as bogus. The company w/ a lawyer from Nigeria, pursuing the foreclosure had no address, phone number etc,)
3. Is CA. going to tax drivers “by the mile”? (CA. has the highest gas tax, increased registration fees for money to fund upkeep on roads. But electric vehicles aren’t paying the same gas tax, so this is an idea to cover that. How will this be monitored?)
– DISCUSSION that every county has individual sales taxes.
– FOCUS OF ROBERT’S PRACTICE.
1. Personal bankruptcy. There are lots of chapters in personal bankruptcies. Either chapter 7 where you get all your debts discharged as long as you get rid of all the secured items. Mortgages also. You CANNOT discharge student loans, judgements against you from a DUI, or a tort, or last 3 years of income taxes. Or a chapter 13 where if you make more than the median income in CA ($70,000/yr for a single person) you MUST do a 13. A Chapter 13 has a payment plan.
2. BK will be on your FICA for 10 years.
REPORT that when you file a Chapter 7 Robert can get you a 700 credit score in a year if you do what he says.

– QUESTIONS FROM “JOEY PALS”
4. Was the lady who REFUSED to return her shopping cart to the designated area cited because she wouldn’t leave her children alone in her car while she did so? (Social media took this over…she wasn’t parked in a handicapped spot. Probably no issues here…”busy about the wrong thing”.)
5. Are body cams on sales clerks a deterrent to shop lifters? (There are already cameras all over the place and inside the store. Probably wouldn’t impact the shoplifter. They wear masks and the police don’t respond for the most part.)

– DISCUSSION of cutting out the center panel of kitchen cabinets. Dann recommends putting glass, frosted glass, metal mesh. Dann recommends putting a light inside these new exposed cabinets. Make certain light can get thru the shelves inside and isn’t blocked by a shelf or bigger bowls etc. Dann recommends just doing this for upper cabinets. Bottom cabinets are mostly for storage AND DRAWERS ARE A BETTER IDEA BELOW.

D.O.H.C. w/ Dr. Brian Hodgkins re: Executive V.P. of Clinical Operations @ D.O.H.C.; 275 El Cielo Rd., Palm Springs, 92262. “Your Health, Your Life, Our Passion”.
– QUESTIONS IN THE MEDICINE CABINET from; Dr. Lindsey, Dr. Brian, news, Internet and Joey Pals in the “Medicine Cabinet”.
1. Explain an addiction to the Internet impacting teenager’s brains? (Study done in England. Studied over a ten-year span. Could tell that kids that spend gaming (recreational) use vs function (school work) use. Study showed significant changes in the neuroconnections between the front of the brain (where executive functioning, decision making, thought happens) and the rest of the brain. Disassociation between the normal function of the brain and learning. Internet Gaming Disorder in the U.S. is a real concern. CAUSES kids to 1. Withdraw. 2. Makes their world smaller, not bigger. 3. Stay in their room (definitely an addictive posture). Need to create other activities.)
2. A study says 75% of past covid patients NOW have a heart condition? (Yes. We knew this in the beginning. Now a new study of patients between the ages of 18 and 83 showed 75% of these folks had elevated proteins that are normally associated w/ heart attacks. Mostly of folks between 40 and 60. Covid has the ability to raise this protein. Seems to “drop” eventually.)

– cont. QUESTIONS IN THE MEDICINE CABINET from; Dr. Lindsey, Dr. Brian, news, Internet and Joey Pals in the “Medicine Cabinet”.
3. What is DESERT FEVER? (Very real, between June 30 and Sept., 30. Called other things i.e. “valley fever”, etc. A blood test will show if you have antibodies against this and then it can be treated. Found in very dry climates. Caused by a fungus. Spores that hide in the dust, then you inhale them and they go into your lungs. Most people have no issues but some folks get a slight case of “Valley Fever” 1. Shortness of breath. 2. Fever. 3. Cough. 4. Chest pains. Looks like COPD sometimes. Most of the time the symptoms go away but the fungus DOES NOT. If you have a WEAK IMMUNE SYSTEM it will not CLEAR the spores. Show up as little masses. In some people it can go into your brain, your spine, your skin. IT IS TREATABLE. Needs to be treated for 3 to 6 months. They will get it again and again and again UNLESS THEIR IMMUNE SYSTEM IS STRONGER.)
4. D.O.H.C. donated more money to Non-Profits.? (D.O.H.C. donates to many many Non-profits. This year D.O.H.C. let their employees pick 3 non-profits and D.O.H.C. gave an extra $30,000 to their choices; Palm Springs Animal Shelter, Desert Cancer Foundation and Find Food Bank.).
