    “I said it would happen on the first throw,” said Deal, the Eugene resident and 1996 silver medalist at the Atlanta Games who correctly forecast Murofushi’s record-breaking performance.

    It did, when Murofushi – who has been training in Eugene with Deal and world-renowned hammer coach Stewart Togher – threw 268-2.

    Murofushi’s impressive series consisted of throws of 271-2, 269-11, 269-10, 269-6 and 268-2, which ranked first, third, fourth, sixth and 10th in the world’s top 10 hammer performances for 2004.

    “I had the confidence,” said Murofushi, whose toss of 278-5 in 2003 stands as the third-longest throw in history.

    Asked about breaking Deal’s records, Murofushi offered a shy grin and said, “Lance is the one who throws far, who knows the hammer. Hopefully, I will learn more.”

    Deal said that if anyone was going to erase his records, “I’m glad it was Koji. He showed consistency, and I expect him to throw 2 or 3 meters (up to 9 feet-plus) farther.”

    James Parker, the defending U.S. champion who trains with Murofushi and under the Togher-Deal guidance system, recorded a personal record of 255-2 to finish second.

    Parker was inspired by Murofushi’s series.

    “To see it go that far, it shows what is humanly possible,” he said. “Koji is the best in the world.”

    In the men’s shot put competition, Christian Cantwell threw 71-4 to win and Adam Nelson was second at 70-6 1/2 . They were the two athletes in the competition to throw past 70 feet.

    “I didn’t get into Eugene until 2 a.m. this morning,” said Cantwell, who won the Titan Games in Atlanta on Friday night, then flew to Oregon.

    “I’ll take 71-4. This was OK,” said Cantwell, who is the world leader in his event with a 73-11 1/2 performance in Portland two weeks ago. “Not great but not (bad). Next year, I’ll do better for the Hayward fans.”

  • What is No-Fault Divorce

    No-fault divorce is a kind of divorce in which, neither the husband nor the wife has committed wrongful action. The persons filing for petition need not show any evidence that the respondent has done any wrongful action. Normally, the person who files petition in the court reveals to the court that the respondent has caused breach of martial contract. But when a person is filing for no-fault divorce, then he does not blame the respondent. Usually the people who wish to remarry file a no-fault divorce petition because they can secure divorce very quickly and do not face any complication. Hence they do not blame the respondent in a major way.

    But the laws are stringent in some parts of the United States such as Albama and hence they do not easily grant divorce for no-fault divorce. The no-fault divorce is also stated as a divorce act that takes place due to the mutual consent with each other. Some states allow the couples to file joint petition also. Usually when the couples are undergoing no-fault divorce, they agree with each other in most of the aspects. They are easily able to compromise on matters such as property issues, asset division, bank accounts, mortgages and other financial aspects. They are also able to decide about child custody.

    Most of the couples state to the court that they were not able to get along with each other or openly communicate with each other in any terms. Most of the states grant divorce to the couples if they are seeking for mutual divorce. They usually state the terms such as ‘incompatibility’ or ‘irreconcilable differences’ in the petition letter. The couples should live apart from each other for a period. They may live apart for six months to one year. Even if they are seeking for no-fault divorce, they should follow some legal terms when they are handling the financial aspects or child custody aspects.

    When the petitioner blames the respondent for breach of martial contract, then this term is known as ‘fault divorce’. The court handles most of the issues for fault-divorce such as property division, asset division, bank accounts split, child custody etc because the couples are unable to decide upon such issues. Usually the respondent pays huge amount of compensation for fault-divorce.

    Following are the advantages of no-fault divorce.

    a. In the United States, the divorce rate has drastically dropped since the enactment of non-fault divorce was introduced.

    b. The man or the woman who is suffering from his or her spouse since longer period can easily gain relief.

    c. The sentiments of the children are not broken so deeply and the process of divorce becomes easier.

    d. The couples can acquire divorce within a shorter period of time.

    e. The children who are abandoned by their parent continue to acquire care and protection because the social relationship between the spouse is not spoilt.

    Usually the family court undertakes decisions regarding the financial aspects and child custody, although the couple is able to decide peacefully between each other harmoniously.

  • Marriage Insurance – A Twist in Divorce

    SafeGuard Guaranty Corp, based in North Carolina, wants to market a unique insurance policy in the United States. The insurance company is marketing “marriage insurance” as a means to financially protect couples who won’t stay married and financially rewarding those who do stay married.

    In the United States, around 2.3 million weddings take place each year. Statistically, about 50% of first marriages end in divorce. Moreover, over 60% of second marriages end in divorce.

    If a couple manages to remain married for the long term, then the insurance policy has a large payout down the road. This provides an incentive for people to stay married and work through their problems. The payout for Safeguard’s policy could be $100,000 after 25 years of marriage. The United States’ Census estimates that only 33% of married couples today will celebrate their 25th wedding anniversary.

    Today, Safeguard is actively seeking couples who will be likely to last the 25 years of marriage bliss. The new Marriage policies were developed in 2010, but the carrier is not currently offering policies, as it seeks a new underwriter. So you will have to wait a little while longer to gamble on your marriage vows.
