How to communicate with your lawyer

4 comments

If you’ve never practised law and get most of your legal knowledge from trashy courtroom dramas, you might struggle when it comes to communicating with your lawyer. Whether you’ve had an accident, injury, or been a victim of medical malpractice (like the lexican lawsuit, for example) you’ve probably already got a lawyer and speak to them regularly. Whilst this might come easily to some people, you might feel worried about misunderstanding your lawyer, or have to go home and look things up afterwards. But communicating with your lawyer shouldn’t be difficult – so what can you do to help?



Be clear
Building relationships is important, and it relies on clarity. How can you expect to understand your lawyer, if they don’t understand you? So, when you speak to your lawyer, make sure you have a solid understanding of what you want to communicate. Do you know the order of the events? Can you explain them well? Are you missing any details? Providing all the information in a clear, detailed manner will enable them to understand the facts as well as you do, and this will strengthen your relationship. If you’re worried that you’re not being clear, practice speaking everything through with a friend, relative or partner.

Be honest
Honesty is another key part of the relationship between a lawyer and client. If your story is missing key elements or you stretch the truth, your lawyer will have reasons not to trust you. Being open and honest will make the relationship stronger and communication will become much easier.

Ask questions
Most good lawyers will tell you everything you need to know. But if they don’t? Ask questions. This is your case, your life, and you deserve to understand everything that is happening and know all the facts. Asking questions will also help to keep the conversation two-sided and your lawyer will appreciate that you are actively participating. It will encourage him or her to keep you in the loop, whilst also demonstrating that you understand everything they are telling you.

Take notes
You might take notes when you have a lengthy doctor’s appointment, so why not do so in a lawyer’s office? Sometimes, you might feel overwhelmed or bombarded with information when your lawyer is talking, so bringing a notepad and pen and writing notes can prove extremely helpful. You can always read over the notes and, if anything is unclear, ask your lawyer about them later. It’s better to be over-prepared than feel anxious and worried that you don’t have all the relevant information.

Be firm
Whilst you might not want to offend your lawyer, they are doing you a service, and therefore that service needs to be right. If you don’t think your lawyer is communicating effectively with you, you need to tell them. They might not have had this feedback before, and will need to work on their communication skills. Don’t be afraid to stand up for yourself and ask for the service you deserve.

7 of the UK’s best-loved campsites : Travel destinations

31 comments

Here are thousands of campsites to choose from in the UK, in rural settings that range from panoramic pitches in the Scottish Highlands to wooden pods with decks that jut out over the Lake District’s Windermere.
To help you whittle down the selection, here are the UK’s seven best-loved campsites according to global travellers – promising an invigorating break and the chance to enjoy Britain’s natural beauty up-close.

Orchard Farm Luxury Glamping in Somerset

This farm campsite can be found just outside of Glastonbury, a pretty Somerset town that has a lot more going for it than the nearby eponymous festival – namely mythical, medieval monuments, boutiques peddling spiritual wares, and pubs with beer gardens serving local mead. You can pitch your own tent or caravan in the campsite, or guests can ‘camp’ in wooden pods placed around the farm’s apple orchard (one for those who want to get closer to nature but with a little luxury and comfort thrown in). Guests are welcomed with fresh flowers, homemade apple juice and home-brewed cider from the farm’s orchard yield – best enjoyed in dappled sunshine on your pod’s private terrace.

Llethrau Forest & Nature Retreats in Mid Wales

Wake up to the sound of birdsong and wind whistling through the trees at this campsite

This remote retreat promises a camping experience where you’ll feel totally immersed in nature, waking up to the sound of birdsong and wind whistling through the trees. There’s a range of accommodation available, from yurts and cottages to huts constructed within the woods, each with large decks that overlook the rolling Welsh hills. Explore the retreat’s four acres of wild gardens and 20 acres of woodland before enjoying a slap-up meal of local produce cooked on your cottage’s Aga and a lantern-lit soak in your hut’s wooden bathroom.

Save a Doctor from Lassa Fever outbreak in Northern Nigeria starting from $3 : Airfunding X Melody Jacob

8 comments

Sadly, Doctors are getting infected from treating Lassa fever patients. In Northern Nigeria, there is an outbreak of Lassa fever in more than three states and it is fast spreading to other parts of Nigeria.

Lassa Fever does not get the attention that Ebola does which is unfortunate because it is almost as serious. The symptoms get very serious for a lot of people, which include bleeding from the eyes, nose and gums. Being unable to breathe, pain in the chest, back and abdomen, hearing loss, swelling of the brain. Death after multiple organ failure after 2 weeks of pain and suffering.

Donations are needed to provide Doctors with adequate protective wears and tools to encourage them to save more lives and also protect themselves. It is very heartbreaking to lose a Doctor on a mission. We are calling on you to help us protect Doctors. By donating to buy more protective equipment so Doctors can help people in the rural areas who are less cared for.

Due to the language difference in some regions, we also need translators to help communicate effectively about prevention, reinfection and daily hygiene to the locals. Please help us protect our Doctors and healthcare workers while fighting this Scourge.

Six WRONG HABITS SINGLE MEN AND WOMEN DO ON VALENTINE'S DAY.

26 comments

Valentine's day is around the corner. If you are single and do not have a partner to celebrate valentine's day with, it is very normal, nothing is wrong, you are doing just fine. 
To some Valentine's day means a lot while to others it is just like every other day. This is a brief article on what some single ladies and men do wrongly on Valentine's month.


1. Answer every call and reply to every chat in the month of February.
Most single people tend to pay attention to almost everybody that text or call in the month of February hoping to be someone's valentine. They reply to everyone, act cool and nice just, so they can be asked out on a date.

2. You buy a gift for yourself, post it on social media, and lie that someone got you a gift
You really have time for shit and nonsense honestly. Image result for liar gif

3. Stop the whole Snapchat and Instagram post of  I am single, I don't have a valentine and I don't care.
Well, if you don't care then we also don't care to know, keep it to yourself, stop the cheap publicity.

The art of packing light: creating your perfect capsule travel wardrobe

14 comments

Are you guilty of overpacking when you go away travelling? Most of us are, when you love fashion, it’s so easy to get carried away with clothing- especially when we’re travelling to a climate that allows us to have fun with our look in ways that we can’t always do at home. However, if you want to keep things more simple, avoid excess baggage costs or save space in your suitcase for holiday purchases, then there are some steps you can take to slim down your case without having fewer outfits. The capsule wardrobe allows you to use every piece you take to its best potential, and despite bringing fewer articles of clothing, you still get a huge mixture of different outfits. Here are some ways you can go about it.

Buy puffer padded winter jackets/coats but consider this

29 comments


It is winter season and the cold isn't so friendly. Of all the recent coat designs in the last 5 years, I will say puffer coats are the best. They are so warm and still gives you a chic look. I love to wear comfortable fashionable coats during winter but most times pretty coats are light and not so covered. Puffer coats and teddy coat do the job. Some puffer coats are waterproof and they are very durable.

Puffer jackets feel like you are wrapped inside a duvet and you just go out with such a warm feeling. When purchasing puffer jackets/coats here are things to consider.

1. Buy one size bigger (The bigger the better).

2. Buy puffer coats with bigger collars. (Hoodies).

3. Buy puffer coats with long length (Maxi puffer coat cover more).

4. Black puffer coats are more versatile.

5. Cropped puffer coats are fashionable but what about your lower body parts.

Shop different puffer padded coats 2020 winter style.

Visit to Gidan Makama Museum Kano state, Nigeria

47 comments

Gidan Makama Museum which is also known as Kano Museum is a museum in Kano, Nigeria. I enjoyed visiting this place, we weren't allowed to take photos in specific places. There are different artworks from centuries. I also learnt about how the British people invaded the north. The building served as the temporary palace of Kano before the current palace Gidan Rumfa was constructed in the 15th century.

The museum has a significant collection of arts, crafts and items of historic interest related to the Kano area. Located in a 15th-century historical building, which is recognised as a National Monument by the Government of Nigeria. The museum is divided into 11 galleries, each with their own centre of focus. Galleries include the Zaure or the main entrance hall with displays of traditional materials, city walls and maps of Kano, the history of statehood, Kano in the 19th century, the Civil War, economy, industry and music.



Entrance fee: 100 naira
No photos allowed inside the museum.
