If you take inventory of your friends’ relationships you will most likely find a few couples that are living together. Cohabitation can often mean joint bank accounts, joint purchases, joint contracting, joint debts, and of course, joint puppy or kitten purchasing. All of these joint transactions can have legal implications in the event of a split.

The United States witnessed the largest outbreak of health-care associated infection in history last year. Methylprednisolone acetate (MPA) injections produced by the New England Compounding Center (NECC) and shipped to pain clinics and hospitals were later found to contain E. rostratum and A. fumigatus and are blamed for causing hundreds of people to become sick, and in some cases, die. To date, the CDC has received 751 reports of confirmed fungal meningitis and other infections associated with the outbreak as well as 64 reports of death. One CDC report estimates that as many as 13,000 people have been exposed to the contaminated steroid injections linked to the outbreak.
