SpeechPro Forensic Audio Workstation Reveals Identity of Mr. Hidden Cash in California

Los Angeles (PRWEB) June 23, 2014

SpeechPro, a global leader in audio forensics and voice biometrics, was recently featured in an Inside Edition exposé to confirm the identity of Mr. Hidden Cash, an anonymous benefactor who’d been leaving packets of money around cities in California.

A nationwide frenzy to determine the identity of the Mr. Hidden Cash concluded when Inside Edition engaged Kent Gibson, an audio forensics expert and owner of Forensic Audio in Los Angeles, to validate his identity using SpeechPro’s SIS II Voice ID module. The verdict? It was a match for a San Francisco real estate broker named Jason Buzi.

Billing himself as an “anonymous social experience for good,” Mr. Hidden Cash posts clues to where he’s hidden money on his Twitter page, which now has more than 600,000 followers. The voice of Mr. Hidden Cash was recorded previously during an interview in Los Angeles, when a news crew caught him hiding envelopes of money in a neighborhood park. Acting on a tip, Inside Edition then found a podcast featuring Jason Buzi and confronted him to ask if he is Mr. Hidden Cash.

Using SpeechPro’s Voice ID software, Gibson was then able to quickly match the voice on both voice samples with very high certainty. “SpeechPro comes to the rescue for most of my forensic audio needs,” Gibson said. “The voice recognition module is unsurpassed in ease of operation and proven reliability, as shown in the results of a NIST 2014 competition.”

At first Buzi denied being Mr. Hidden Cash, but when confronted with Gibson’s results, he admitted during the Inside Edition broadcast that he is indeed the secret benefactor.

“Kent Gibson is one of many advanced audio forensics experts using SpeechPro products to clean, analyze and confirm the identity of persons of interest,” said Steve Eccher, business development manager for SpeechPro. Eccher was formerly with the U.S. Food and Drug Administration’s Office of Investigation and has worked with law enforcement entities to identify and apprehend suspects and to identity benefactors like Mr. Hidden Cash.

Mesothelioma Attorneys at Baron and Budd Announce $48 Million Verdict on Behalf of Mesothelioma Patient in California

Los Angeles (PRWEB) November 23, 2012

A Los Angeles jury has awarded a major $ 48 million verdict to a California mesothelioma patient and the patient’s family after finding Union Carbide, a subsidiary of Dow Chemical, Riverside Cement, CalPortland and others liable for the exposure to asbestos that led to a California patient’s mesothelioma diagnosis. This is the highest mesothelioma verdict in California in 2012. Baron and Budd mesothelioma lawyers John Langdoc and Christine Tamer represented patient and his family throughout the lawsuit (Bobbie Izell, et al. v. Union Carbide Corp., et al., Los Angeles County, Case No. 4674).

During the trial, Union Carbide offered numerous paid expert witnesses who argued that the company’s asbestos trade named Calidria asbestos does not cause cancer. According to court documents however, confidential internal memos have shown that even Union Carbide staff physicians reprimanded the company’s marketing and sales groups for telling customers that the company’s asbestos did not cause cancer.

Two other defendants involved in the trial, Riverside Cement and CalPortland, also brought in paid expert witnesses to testify that the amount of asbestos released from their products was trivial. According to court documents, however, bags of they companies’ construction products have been scientifically shown to have quadrillions of fibers of asbestos material.

While the jury found blame with all of the defendants, they assigned $ 18 million in punitive damages to Union Carbide for its corporate cover-up of the dangers associated with asbestos exposure.

Power Liens Doctor Directory Expands to California

Los Angeles, CA (PRWEB) November 28, 2012

Power Liens (http://www.powerliens.com) has announced that they have launched their exclusive physician directory in California as of December 1, 2012. They are also live in Florida, Arizona, and Illinois.

Power Liens is the largest directory of Personal Injury and Workers’ Compensation physicians working on liens. Built as a free, easy-to-use resource for attorneys looking for doctors near their clients, Power Liens is the only place to find specialists like orthopedic surgeons, physical therapists, radiologists, neurologists, and others all working on a lien basis. 100% free to use and no sign-up required, attorneys can simply go to http://www.PowerLiens.com, type in their client’s location and select the type of physician they need. Attorneys can even filter your results by office hours, degrees, special treatments, etc.

California is the biggest state in the country for Personal Injury claims, specifically auto wrecks. While most Personal Injury cases in California are soft-tissue injuries that only require a chiropractor, more serious cases involve injuries that often require numerous and varied specialists to treat the patient. For lawyers, it can be quite difficult finding local doctors on liens (where the doctor agrees to wait to receive payment from a Personal Injury/Workers’ Compensation case settlement, rather than immediately billing the patient). The free and simple Power Liens directory includes hundreds of chiropractors, orthos, physical therapists, radiologists/MRI facilities, neurologists, dentists, pharmacies, plastic surgeons, PM&R doctors, psychiatrists, psychologists, and others who do precisely this type of Personal Injury or Workers’ Compensation work. The site is location-based, so attorneys can simply type in their client’s address, select the specialist they need, and find a doctor nearby.

“Finding the perfect doctor, with the required credentials, is essential to help maximize the settlement for the attorney. Our goal is to help attorneys save time and help their staff do their jobs better.” said Founder and COO, Jason Ramin.

With its proprietary filtering function, Power Liens makes it easy for lawyers to find the specific doctor they need. Their physician search can be narrowed down by type of degree, expert witnesses, special treatments, office hours, etc. Best of all, it’s free.

Power Liens even has a dedicated research staff that will find specialists who may not currently be listed on the site for attorneys in need.

The Power Liens directory in California currently includes doctors in Alhambra, Anaheim, Anderson, Antioch, Auburn, Baldwin Park, Banning, Bellflower, Beverly Hills, Bonita, Brea, Burbank, Calexico, Campo, Canoga Park, Canyon Country, Cardiff, Carlsbad, Carmichael, Carson, Cerritos, Chatsworth, Chino, Chula Vista, Citrus Heights, Compton, Concord, Corona, Coronado, Costa Mesa, Cottonwood, Crescent City, Culver City, Davis, Del Mar, Diamond Bar, Downey, Eagle Rock, El Cajon, El Dorado Hills, El Monte, El Segundo, Elk Grove, Encinitas, Encino, Escondido, Eureka, Fair Oaks, Fairfield, Folsom, Fontana, Fresno, Fullerton, Garden Grove, Glendale, Glendora, Granada Hills, Granite Bay, Grass Valley, Hacienda Heights, Hawthorne, Hemet, Hesperia, Hollywood, Huntington Park, Imperial Beach, Indio, Industry, Inglewood, Irvine, La Canada Flintridge, La Crescenta, La Jolla, La Mesa, La Mirada, Ladera Ranch, Lake Elsinore, Lake Forest, Lancaster, Lawndale, Lemon Grove, Lincoln, Lodi, Long Beach, Mar Vista, Marina Del Rey, McCloud, Menifee, Montebello, Monterey Park, Montrose, Murrieta, National City, Newhall, North Highlands, North Hollywood, Northridge, Oceanside, Ontario, Orange, Orangevale, Oxnard, Pacoima, Palmdale, Panorama City, Pasadena, Perris, Pico Rivera, Placentia, Placerville, Pleasant Hill, Pomona, Poway, Ramona, Rancho Cordova, Rancho Cucamonga, Rancho Mirage, Red Bluff, Redding, Reseda, Riverside, Rocklin, Rosemead, Roseville, Sacramento, San Bernardino, San Clemente, San Diego, San Fernando, San Marcos, Santa Ana, Santa Barbara, Santa Clarita, Santa Monica, Santee, Saugus, Shasta Lake, Sherman Oaks, Simi Valley, Solana Beach, South Gate, South Pasadena, Spring Valley, Stockton, Studio City, Tarzana, Thousand Oaks, Toluca Lake, Torrance, Tustin, Upland, Valencia, Vallejo, Van Nuys, Ventura, Victorville, Vista, Weaverville, West Covina, West Hollywood, West Los Angeles, West Sacramento, Whittier, Wildomar, Wilmington, Woodland, Woodland Hills, Yorba Linda, Yreka, and Yuba City.
