Private investigators, or PIs, are private citizens with various types of training and experience. Investigators seek, gather, collect, examine and identify evidence in civil and criminal cases for lawyers, insurance companies and spouses for a fee. While it's not as glorious as the TV shows make it out to be, it can still be an exciting career.

Use of social media is growing year on year, and is becoming a more important source of evidence for a broad range of investigations – both criminal and civil. But is it this simple? Is there a difference between just monitoring what’s going on via social media and being able to use that information as evidence in a case? for more information visit www.cclgroupltd.com

Eleven days after the terrorist attacks on September 11, 2001, Congress passed the Air Transportation Safety and Stabilization Act (hereinafter “Act” or “Stabilization Act”)1 to protect air carriers from tort lawsuits that threatened to cripple air travel in America. The Act capped tort lawsuits against the airlines at their pre-existing liability insurance limits and limited jurisdiction for tort claims to the United States District Court for the Southern District of New York. Moreover, the Act established the September 11th Compensation Fund of 2001 (hereinafter “Fund” or “9/11 Fund”), in which victims of the attacks could opt to waive all federal and state tort claims and receive administrative relief through a predetermined formula, under the discretion of the Fund administrator. That the airlines were so concerned about their liability exposure, and the Congress so willing to act promptly upon that concern, is a testament to the mess our modern civil justice system has become.2 This paper will: (1) outline the contours of the “litigation explosion” in the United States, and the problems it creates; (2) examine briefly the historical precedents for administrative remedies designed to replace common law tort actions; (3) expand this analysis to survey the 9/11 Fund experience; and (4) discuss the implications of this experience for possible policy solutions to the liability crisis.

Structural modelling and analysis using BIM tools Master of Science in Civil Engineering The School of Civil Engineering, Aalborg University Anne Kathrine Nielsen & Søren Madsen Faculties of Engineering, Science and Medicine The School of Civil Engineering Aalborg University Sohngaardsholmsvej 57 DK-9000 Aalborg Phone +45 9940 8530 http://bsn.aau.dk Title: Structural modelling and analysis using BIM tools Theme: Master’s Thesis Project period: 1st of February to the 9th of June 2010 Synopsis: This study will focus on the structural engineering part in the detail design phase of the building process. Different S-BIM tools are evaluated through analyses of ﬁve structures with varying complexity, different section properties, geometry, material properties and so on. The S-BIM tools evaluated are: Made by: Anne Kathrine Nielsen Søren Madsen Supervisor: Poul Henning Kirkegaard Editions: 3 Number of pages: 81 Appendices: 7 • Add-on tool for Revit Structure • Direct link between Revit and Robot • Direct link between Revit and StaadPro • Indirect link between Revit and Robot via IFC The Revit add-on tool tested can be rather useful for calculating section forces and deﬂection in feasibility studies if a ’load-takedown’ feature is introduced. It is found that the direct links in general are best. Regarding timber structures, the link between Revit and Robot works better than the link between Revit and StaadPro. The tested IFC exchange ﬁle format, IFC Coordination View, was not found suitable for the tests performed in this study. Completed: 9th of June 2010 The content of the report is freely available, but publication (with source reference) is only allowed with agreement by the author. Preface This study is conducted at the 4th semester of the Master of Science Programme in Civil Engineering at Aalborg University. The title of the project is Structural modelling and analysis using BIM tools. The report has been composed in the period from the 1st of February 2010 to the 9th of June 2010. The study has been supervised by Associate Professor Poul Henning Kirkegaard. The authors would like to thank: • Elizabeth Shulok from Structural Integrators for technical support to the software application SI Xchange for Revit and STAAD. • Rambøll in Aalborg for providing digital models of the House of Music in Aalborg, Denmark. In extension to this report a CD-ROM containing the employed models is enclosed. In the report the CD-ROM is referred to when relevant. The contents of the enclosed CD-ROM are listed in Appendix A.
