How to Get a Background Check Louisiana

It is common for companies to require background checks of job applicants and new employees. Background checks are a way for business owners to know they are hiring honest and trustworthy people. If job applicants are honest about their history, whether or not they have a criminal past, they are more likely to be hired. Problems arise when there are discrepancies between what applicants claim to be truth and what the background check Louisiana documents say. Business owners should be cautious when hiring new employees. While we would like to trust every stranger that walks in the door, it just isn’t possible in this day and age. It is easier than ever for dishonest people to fabricate every detail of their lives, from work history to family background. That is why many hiring committees and human resource departments require a background check Louisiana for every new employee or serious job applicant....

"Pump It Powder" The new bath salts

  Pump It Powder is a new drug that is getting negative attention among drug treatment, law enforcement, and school personnel. The designer drug, reported to be similar to amphetamines, has been seen as a replacement for the drugs known as Dragonfly, Glass Cleaner, Spice, K2, and Bath Salts. Because the ingredients are sold under the indication of being a plant vitamin and clearly labeled as "not for human consumption," they are once again creating a new craze among teenagers and people in their 20's who prefer designer drugs over the ones made halfway around the world and smuggled in unique ways into the US. The Pump It Powder drug, given that it is similar to amphetamines, can create anxiety, heart palpitations, and other adrenal problems that can throw off your metabolism. In the same way that over the counter drugs can have bad effects in some people, taking Pump It...

Should You Conduct A Louisiana Criminal Background Check For Employees?

Growing your business is a wonderful experience, but as business increases you will likely need to start hiring (or hire more) employees. You want an employee you can trust and someone that is perfect for the job at hand. Getting supplemental information on each applicant with a Louisiana criminal background check can really help you make the best informed decision on who to hire. Yes, your employment application may include “the box.” We all know that box. “Have you ever been convicted of a crime?” A common mistake in hiring is immediately discriminating against candidates that have checked this box. Conducting a Louisiana criminal background check will give you a much broader look at every candidate and insight into their personality and integrity. It’s better to gauge a person’s whole application, including education and experience. In the long run, it’s really best to look at a broad spectrum of information on...

(KETK) -- The 2013 National Drug Threat Assessment (NDTA) Summary addresses emerging developments related to the trafficking and use of primary illicit substances of abuse and the nonmedical use of controlled prescription drugs (CPDs).

 2.  BE A GOOD ROLE MODEL WHEN IT COMES TO DRINKING, TAKING MEDICINE & HANDLING STRESS Research shows that when it comes to alcohol and other drugs, children are likely to model their parents’ behaviors—both healthy and unhealthy ones. A parent’s attitude about drugs and alcohol can influence their children’s behavior.  Here are three ways you can be a good role model. Do not become intoxicated in front of your children. Do not save prescription medications to be used later without a doctor’s consent and do not share your medications with others (that is a criminal offense). Do not use alcohol as a coping mechanism or to relieve stress.  (Example: Saying to your kids, “I had a rough day – I need a few beers or a joint to relax.”)   This and other information is available at:

The Specifics of DNA Testing in Texas

The phrase “DNA testing” has several immediate implications, but the main idea is always the same: irrefutable scientific proof of a person’s presence. Whether we are talking about a person’s presence at the scene of a crime or at the moment of conception is just a matter of what is done with the DNA in question after it has been identified. After two decades of expansive use, DNA testing in Texas has become a staple in many criminal investigations and has helped countless people learn more about themselves and their past. What is DNA Testing For? Typical reasons for DNA testing in Texas involve parentage as often as not. Paternity and maternity tests have been very useful in helping determine whether or not a child has the biological parents they think they have. This has been especially useful for people whose questionable parentage can have serious impacts on their immigration status....

Our DNA services are invaluable in paternity tests, genetic inheritance, twin zygosity, siblingship tests and much, much more. DNA testing is also indispensable in court cases, and last month, a DNA paternity test led to the reopening of an FBI case that had been closed for almost 50 years. Every child has probably, at one time or another, yelled in anger “You’re not my real parents!” And usually, this is just a normal part of growing up. But for Paul Fronczak, it turned out to be true. In 1964, newborn Paul Fronczak was kidnapped from a Chicago hospital. 14 months later, an abandoned baby in New Jersey was found that resembled Paul. The baby was returned to joyful parents, Chester and Dora Fronczak, and life seemed to return to normal. However, as the years went by, Paul Fronczak couldn’t...
