Good Samaritan

Who is Good Samaritan?

A Good Samaritan is a person who, in good faith, without expectation of payment or reward and without any duty of care or special relationship, 
voluntarily comes forward to administer immediate assistance or emergency care to a person injured in an accident, 
or crash, or emergency medical condition, or emergency situation.

What is Good Samaritan Law?

The Good Samaritan Law allows a person, without expectation of payment or reward and without any duty of care or special relationship, 
voluntarily come forward to administer immediate assistance or emergency care to a person injured in an accident, or crash, or emergency medical condition. 
Good Samaritan Law protects Good Samaritans from harassment on the actions being taken by them to save the life of the road accident victims.

Why the need for Good Samaritan law?

India is an unfortunate victim of a large number of road crash fatalities. 
Three out of four people in the country are hesitant to help injured accident victims on roads due to fear of police harassment, 
detention at hospitals, and prolonged legal formalities. Even if someone wants to help, these factors stop them from doing so.

How did India get a Good Samaritan Law?

In the last ten years, road crashes have killed over 13 lakh people in India. 
According to the Law Commission of India, 50% of these victims died of preventable injuries and could have been saved if they had received care on time. 
The role of the bystander is critical in providing emergency care to the victim. 
Yet, in India, bystanders have been hesitant to help the injured for fear of legal repercussions and procedural hassles.

In 2012, a Public Interest Litigation (PIL) was filed in the Supreme Court of India, 
requesting the Hon'ble court to safeguard Good Samaritans who come forward to help the injured.

Be a Good Samaritan

Road crashes claimed more than 200,000 lives in India alone and contributed to the economic loss of approximately 3% GDP. 
17 people die every hour on Indian roads and around 4.07 LAC.

As per the reports, nearly 50 per cent of road fatalities would not have happened had medical attention been given within the first hour. 
Become a GOOD SAMARITAN and help us reduce this number.

We take this pledge to save someone's life and take it upon as our moral duty being a good citizen.

Back in 2013 I sold the source code  for Cobian Backup to James Sweeney,

I retain the rights to distribute and support any version I created myself, i.e. up to Gravity. 
Cobian Reflector is a new program created by me, and the successor to Cobian Backup.

Cobian Backup is a file-backup program that can be used to make automatic backups for your directories and files. 
Cobian Backup can be run as a service or as a regular application. 
It can backup to some other location in the same computer, to the network and even to an FTP server. 
The program supports compression and encryption.

Cobian Reflector is the newcomer in the Cobian Backup family, although it’s a whole new program. 
Cobian Reflector is completely .NET based. 
In addition to all the features of the latest Cobian Backup, it has support for SFTP transfers, 
it is DPI independent due to the use of vector graphics and Windows Presentation Foundation, 
and also behaves as a 64-bit program in 64-bit systems and as a 32-bit program in 32-bit systems.

Cobian Backup and Cobian Reflector are freeware and can be used for free even in a commercial environment.

List of confidence tricks

Confidence tricks and scams are difficult to classify, because they change often and often contain elements of more than one type. 
Throughout this list, the perpetrator of the confidence trick is called the "con artist" or simply "artist", and the intended victim is the "mark". 
Particular scams are mainly directed toward elderly people, as they may be credulous and sometimes inexperienced or insecure, 
especially when the scam involves modern technology such as computers and the internet. 
This list should not be considered complete but covers the most common examples.
