What is Asbestos, and Who Can Be Affected By It?
Asbestos is a mineral used in a variety of construction materials used in Eunice, and has many other uses because of its fire-retardant and insulating properties. The danger lies in the microscopic fibers that can be inhaled, which damage the lungs and causes cancers, including Mesothelioma. These fibers can also attach themselves to clothing, which means you can be at risk for Mesothelioma even if you are not working directly with asbestos. If you are exposed to asbestos in your New Orleans home or on the job, you may not develop Mesothelioma for many years. This underscores why it’s so important to speak with a New Orleans Mesothelioma Attorney immediately if you’ve been diagnosed with this terrible disease.

New Orleans Tidbits
Dazzling gaslight torches, or “flambeaux”, lit the night as a sea of purple, yellow and green flows down the street, feathery, glittering flamboyant, whirling and twirling to the rhythm of continuous cacophony of sound, blaring trumpets, drums, guitars, voices, music, laughter… screaming revelers yelling, “Hey Mister! Throw me somethin’ mister!” and beads come flying through the air into open hands raised up to catch them. Dancers on top of elaborately designed floats and some prancing on the streets, gyrates and spins, all in sync and all in seemingly tranced state of continuous dancing. Everywhere are masked faces, in a frozen frown or grotesque smile, a pompous clown or a beaked golden face… everyone unknown to the other and yet are sharing a drink, exchanging stories, singing and dancing together. The air smells of alcohol and sweat and Cajun food and perfume… and the unmasked faces all have a big smile on. This is Mardi Gras, French for Fat Tuesday. An annual carnival celebration, beginning on or after the Christian feasts of the Epiphany (Three Kings Day) and Culminating on the day before Ash Wednesday. For the state of Louisiana, it all started on one Tuesday, March 2nd 1699, when French -Canadian explorer Jean Baptiste Le Moyne Sieur de Bienville arrived at a plot of ground 60 miles directly south of New Orleans, and named it “Pointe du Mardi Gras”. Hundreds of years later, this merrymaking and indulgence is just one of the reasons why New Orleans, a city shaped with three centuries of history and the people from different parts of the world who were lead to this place on the Mississippi River and take root, truly “most unique” in the United States
The largest city and metropolitan area in the state of Louisiana, New Orleans has a population that is the 46th largest in the country. Named after the Duke of Orleans, who reigned as Regent for Louis XV from 1715 to 1723, this city has a heritage influenced by French and Spanish colonists. It is distinct in the city’s French and Spanish Creole architecture as well as its cross-cultural and multilingual heritage. Founded on May 7th 1718, by the French Mississippi Company under the direction of Bienville, the French colony was relinquished to the Spanish Empire in the Treaty of Paris (1763) and was reverted briefly to French oversight in 1803. In that same year, Napoleon sold Louisiana to the United States in the Louisiana Purchase. Shortly, this port city has seen an influx of numerous cultures over the course of history. Americans, French, Creoles and Africans followed by Haitian refugees, both white and free people of color, often bringing African slave with them started arriving. In 1840’s, large numbers of German and Irish immigrants began arriving, working as laborers in the busy port.
Since then, New Orleans has one of the largest and busiest ports in the world and metropolitan New Orleans is a center of maritime industry. It also accounts for a significant portion of the nation’s refining and petrochemical production, and serves as a white-collar corporate base for onshore and offshore petroleum and natural gas production.
New Orleans is a center for higher learning with Tulane University on the top-50 research university, it also possess a major reqional hub for the health care industry and boasts a small, competitive manufacturing sector.

Savor its cultural diversity from the traditional Creole to the common favorite crawfish and other seafood, from the elegant French cuisine to the hole in the wall store’s po’boy, from soulful lovingly cooked soul food to the urban upscale modern cuisine. Listen to the multi-heritage music, raw and organic, it is in the street, it seeps through every nooks and crannies of houses, it hangs in the air, it creeps into one’s soul. It is a part of living. Every music and musician is unique on its own. Each has a story to tell. Each has its own tune and beat.
