Frosh Students Shed Light on Energy Efficiency

first_imgMore than 100 University of King’s College frosh students will shed some light on energy efficiency on Saturday, Sept. 9, when they go door-to-door in some Halifax neighbourhoods. The students will be giving away compact fluorescent light bulbs donated by the Department of Energy and the Climate Change Centre. The project is one of the many initiatives planned for this fall by the Climate Change Centre, a Clean Nova Scotia program funded by the Department of Energy. The province is investing $60,000 to help the centre continue climate change and energy education projects and expand into new initiatives, like the frosh student light exchange. The funding is an extension of a $35,000 investment provided earlier this year to cover federal funding that was discontinued in April. “Each and every Nova Scotian can make a difference by using energy more efficiently,” said Energy Minister Bill Dooks. “This funding will help all Nova Scotians learn how we can reduce both our energy use and our greenhouse gas emissions that lead to climate change.” Daisy Kidston of the Climate Change Centre said the investment will help ensure Nova Scotians not only have access to information, but are able to put that information to work. “Our goal is to get the information out there, and then enable people to make use of it,” said Ms. Kidston. “This light bulb campaign is a perfect example. Some renters and homeowners may not be aware of the benefits of using compact fluorescents, but this allows them to experience it while removing the barriers. Hopefully the experience will also inspire a new generation of leaders at the university level.” This fall, the Climate Change Centre will continue its focus on public education and outreach to Nova Scotians interested in learning more about climate change, energy efficiency, and energy conservation. The organization will work with a wide variety of Nova Scotians including youth, faith groups, and senior citizens.last_img read more

Province Expands Preprimary Program

first_imgHundreds of additional families across the province will have access to pre-primary when the program expands to 56 new schools this September. This will mark year three, of a four-year rollout, that will bring the total number of schools in Nova Scotia delivering the program to 201. The expansion will see 84 new classrooms and based on Grade Primary enrolment data, it is anticipated about 1,400 four-year-olds could access the program. “Access to early learning opportunities the year before a child starts school supports lifelong success,” said Zach Churchill, Minister of Education and Early Childhood Development. “This is a program that families want in their communities and we are one year away from being able to give every four-year-old in the province the opportunity to participate.” Government will invest about $10.2 million this year to expand the program, bringing the total annual investment to $34.2 million. This year, more than 3,000 children enrolled in the pre-primary program. Pre-primary implementation in the Conseil scolaire acadien provincial and Strait Regional Centre for Education has already been completed. The Tri-County and South Shore Regional Centres for Education will have fully implemented the program this fall. Lisa Conway’s son, Hunter, was one of the first children to attend pre-primary when it was launched at Rockingstone Heights Elementary in Spryfield in 2017. Lisa said the program supported her child to enter school by helping him learn to socialize with other children his age. “Since he completed pre-primary, what I’ve noticed is that his vocabulary has improved greatly,” said Ms. Conway. “I would recommend the program to other families because it helps children become more social and they learn to co-operate with each other at a younger age.” The expansion of pre-primary will save families thousands of dollars in child care costs and create more opportunities for early childhood educators in Nova Scotia. About 224 more early childhood educators will be needed to support the new classrooms. More than 400 early childhood educators will be employed by the program next year. Families who live near a school community that is offering pre-primary and wish to register their child, can contact the Conseil scolaire acadien provincial or their Regional Centre for Education.

They just ripped them out of  my hands A mother shares her

first_imgInFocusOn the second edition of a three-part series about child and family services (CFS) on InFocus, Host Melissa Ridgen talks with parents who found themselves targets of CFS agencies and how they beat. or continue to fight they system.Stacy Owl lost her five children two years ago on the word of a tipster whom she had never met.A woman had called CFS accusing Owl of being a “crackhead” and running a meth lab.Owl and her family were moving from Alberta to Ontario and stopped a in a motel near the First Nation where Owl grew up.Police and CFS workers swooped in the next day and seized the kids on the basis of what the tipster told authorities back in Alberta.So began her family’s nightmare“They just ripped them out of my hands,” Owl said. “So I’m crying and they’re telling me it’s because I’m withdrawing from drugs.“You’re ripping my babies out of my arms and telling me nothing.”Owl immediately went to a hospital for drug tests which the agency brushed off and said they’d do their own in due time.For three months her kids were in care while she had to prove she doesn’t use crack and doesn’t have a meth lab.“All this time, they’re drilling me about their personal baby stories, making a file for all of them.” Owl said. “I asked them why are they asking all these personal questions when those are my memories and my babies’ memories to keep, not for anybody else to share. They said, ‘oh just in case they get adopted out.’“I asked why are you adopting my kids?”When she finally got them back after the allegations were deemed baseless, the agency gave her $1,500 in gift cards.She said she felt it was hush money to leave and tell no one about the ordeal.She asked for records of the file and has been denied.APTN Investigates reporter Kevin Nepitabo dug into the apprehension rates in Saskatchewan.70 per cent of kids apprehended in that province are identified as Indigenous.Nepitabo wanted to find out how this affects the children and the parents, and why indigenous families are most targeted by the CFS industry..“I new the basics of CFS,” Nepitabo said. “I knew children were being apprehended by CFS but I didn’t know the horror stories behind it. Like going out there and hearing parents talk about their children being apprehended, that was very hard to do.You don’t realize how much emotional impact is has on the parents and especially the child. It was very hard to hear this stuff, and I still think about it.“There is a lot of work that needs to be done in fixing it,” he said. “From all the stories I heard it seems like its a broken system. One example would be, there was a 22 month old boy who passed away in care. When CFS went to inform his mother of the boy’s death, of course she would be hysterical. And I guess she broke down, fell on the ground crying and they told her to get up or they are going to have to call the police.“So this is how people are being treated in the system.”You can watch Kevin Nepitabo’s investigates story Apprehended, on Friday Feb. 1, on APTN.Here’s a link to a preview: Apprehendedlast_img read more

Morocco Crucial Partner For WTO In Africa Its Head Says

Geneva  –  The World Trade Organization (WTO) sees Morocco as a crucial partner in Africa and appreciates the Kingdom’s contribution to its actions, said on Wednesday WTO director general Roberto Azevedo. The WTO chief was speaking at a meeting with Mohamed Aujjar who handed him his credentials as Morocco’s permanent ambassador in Geneva. Azevedo also commended the decisive role by Morocco, in its capacity as the African Group Coordinator in 2013, in ensuring the success of Bali ministerial conference last December. Morocco is attached to a bilateral economic policy through the conclusion of free trade agreements with leading economic actors as the USA and the EU, Aujjar said, voicing the country’s satisfaction with its partnership with the said organization and its wish to benefit from WTO’s expertize. read more

UNHCR Morocco Sets an Example in Immigration Asylum Policy

Rabat- The UNHCR commissioner, Filippo Grandi, has said that Morocco sets an example in its immigration and asylum policy.At the 69th session of the United Nations High Commissioner for Refugees (UNHCR) executive committee on Tuesday in Geneva, Grandi took the opportunity to review Morocco’s humanitarian initiatives and approach to asylum and immigration policy.Grandi made his remarks in an exchange with the permanent representative of Morocco to the UN in Geneva, drawing attention to the “excellent” cooperation between the North African country and UNHCR. Spain’s State Secretary for Migration Consuelo Rumi Ibanez has also described Morocco’s fight against irregular migration as “responsible engagement” during a two-day working visit to Morocco.Ibanez told Maghreb Arab Press (MAP) on Tuesday, October 2, that Morocco “needs support and financial assistance from the European Union” to address undocumented migration, and “Spain will be the voice of Morocco within Europe to ask for more support and financial aid.”The comments have come at the time when Morocco is combating the migration to Europe, not only of sub-Saharan Africans but also of Moroccan young people.The latest incident hitting the headlines, in which the Royal Moroccan Navy shot at a migrant boat in the Mediterranean and killed a 20-year-old woman, has drawn increased attention to migration in Morocco.Read Also: ‘The European Dream Is a lie:’ Spain Tells Morocco to Curb MigrationThe dream of reaching their El Dorado leads hundreds of Moroccans, both adults and minors, to northern Morocco in an attempt to find a route to Europe.According to Spain’s Ministry of the Interior, Moroccan nationals make up the highest number of the 38,000 migrants believed to have entered Spain in 2018.The Moroccan government is under pressure to find rapid solutions to confront the challenges of undocumented migration.In terms of asylum policy, Morocco has become a destination for refugees and migrants under its National Policy on Immigration and Asylum (NPIA), which was launched in September 2013 under the instructions of King Mohammed VI. read more

Drug activity widespread on World Wide Web UN expert panel reports

There are chat rooms that discuss recipes for making drugs and the World Wide Web has also become a vehicle for money laundering, the Vienna-based International Narcotics Control Board (INCB) says in its annual report, which this year deals with the theme of globalization and new technologies. The INCB comprises 13 experts serving in their individual capacity and is responsible for promoting government compliance with the provisions of the drug control treaties. The panel also is mandated to ensure that adequate supplies of legal drugs are available for medical and scientific uses, and to identify weaknesses in the national and international control systems for illicit drugs. Speaking at a UN press briefing in New York to launch the report, Board member Herbert Okun said the panel was not about to call for censorship but thought that the universality of the Web and of the drug control treaties demanded some kind of international and national responses to the problem. The Board, in its recommendations, called on governments, the information technology industry, advocacy groups and health professionals to help regulate the Web in a sensible way. As for addressing the serious drug control situation in Afghanistan – which was closely linked to achieving peace, security and development – Mr. Okun said that nation needed the full support and cooperation of the international community, particularly the neighbouring countries. Global action was needed to help Afghan farmers cultivate alternative cash crops to replace the resumption of opium cultivation. Since the change in administration in Kabul, Mr. Okun said the Board has been in steady contact with UN Secretary-General Kofi Annan and with the Security Council. Last December, and again two weeks ago, Mr. Okun and the President of the INCB Board, Hamid Ghodse, met with the President of the Council to raise consciousness on the drug cultivation problem in Afghanistan. Besides a region-by-region analysis of the global drug situation, the Board’s report also deals with how the issue of cannabis control is dividing the world. read more

Review Pebble smart watch is great way to be bugged good sign

Review: Pebble smart watch is great way to be bugged, good sign for wearable computing AddThis Sharing ButtonsShare to TwitterTwitterShare to FacebookFacebookShare to RedditRedditShare to 電子郵件Email by Peter Svensson, The Associated Press Posted Jul 17, 2013 1:15 pm MDT NEW YORK, N.Y. – You have a cellphone, maybe a tablet. Sometimes you lug around a laptop. Do you really need one more gadget on you?Yes, you do. You need a smart watch. At least, that’s what I learned after I got the Pebble, a $150 watch that connects wirelessly to iPhones and Android smartphones to notify you of incoming calls, texts and emails.The Pebble has a lot of rough edges, but it does a good job of demonstrating the potential of “wearable” computing. Apple has filed patents that demonstrate it’s working on a watch, and other “smart” watches are proliferating.The Pebble has impeccable underdog credibility as the brain child of a 26-year-old Canadian entrepreneur who struggled to find money to make it until he posted his project on the fundraising site Kickstarter. There, it was a runaway success, raising more than $10 million in less than a month from nearly 70,000 friends and strangers.What’s great about the Pebble isn’t that it’s particularly smart on its own. Considering that it’s a watch with the processing power of a cellphone from 2008, it really doesn’t do much out of the box. In fact, it does less than many sports watches; you can set alarms, but it doesn’t come with a timer.The watch qualifies as a “smart” device because you can download and install applications, such as a timer. So far, the apps are pretty rudimentary. Apart from the timer, the only app I bothered to install is one that walks you through a popular seven-minute workout routine.The Pebble’s real use is as an extension of the smartphone, a replacement for the ring signal.Think about it: how many times have you missed calls and texts because the ringer was off, and you didn’t feel the vibration because the phone wasn’t on you? Or you forgot to turn the ringer off, and it rang at the wrong time? These things used to happen a lot to me. The Pebble put an end to that.When you get a call, text, email or calendar reminder, the Pebble vibrates. You can set it to provide you with Facebook notifications, too. Because it’s strapped to your wrist, it’s a signal you can’t miss, yet it’s unnoticeable to anyone else. After a few days, I turned off the cellphone’s ringer and vibrating alert — and left them off. The Pebble’s vibrating alert was right for every situation.The Pebble also gives me the freedom to distance myself from the phone. Rather than carrying the bulky thing in my pocket so I could feel it vibrating, I leave it in my bag. At home, I leave it on the charging stand in the foyer.The Bluetooth wireless connection between the phone and the watch works fine throughout my small New York apartment. The company says the range is 20 to 30 feet. It worked at longer distances in my test, but I wouldn’t count on it maintaining a connection throughout a multilevel home.The Pebble doesn’t work flawlessly with every phone, so buyer beware. It worked fine with a Kyocera Torque, a Samsung Galaxy Nexus and a Motorola Razr M. All of them use Google’s Android software. With a fourth Android phone, the HTC One, the connection to the watch dropped many times a day, and it wouldn’t reconnect automatically once it dropped. That made the Pebble pretty useless. A colleague tested the watch with her iPhone 4 and found that while it maintained the connection fine when the watch and phone were close by, it wouldn’t reconnect automatically if they got separated and then reunited. That was annoying.With the right phones, the only thing I had to worry about was turning off the connection between the phone and the watch at night, so it wouldn’t buzz me in bed with incoming email. Yes, I’ve actually started wearing the watch to bed. The vibrating alarm wakes me up without disturbing anyone else in the room, and I never have to fumble for the alarm on the nightstand.If every buzz from the watch sent me scrambling for my phone, the setup would be pretty annoying. But the watch’s stamp-sized screen shows the first few lines of every incoming message, or the name and number of the caller, so a glance at the watch reveals if the message is one to ignore or get on quickly. You still have to fish out the phone to reply, though. The watch has only four buttons, and there’s no way to type on it.The watchmaker calls the black-and-white screen “e-paper.” That sounds like it’s a paper-like display of the kind found on Amazon’s monochrome Kindle e-readers, but that’s not the case. The Pebble screen is a liquid-crystal display that doesn’t need a backlight to be legible in indoor or outdoor light, which helps save battery power. There is a backlight that kicks in whenever a button is pushed, so the watch face is legible in darkness, too.You can pick from a dozen digital watch faces and flip between them using the watch buttons. Some of them are more amusing than useful, such as one that shows the time in binary numbers. Some are animations of analog faces. One shows 4:20 written out as “four twenty.”What’s baffling — and a major downside to the Pebble — is that none of the watch faces have the basic indicators we expect from a smart device: whether it’s connected and whether it needs charging. You need at least five button presses to reveal the connection status. One press will get you to a battery indicator, but it will only tell you if you battery is low. It doesn’t tell you when it will die.The battery lasts for about a week, but there’s plenty of variability, so I wouldn’t be comfortable just setting a reminder to recharge the watch every Monday. The manufacturer says a full charge takes about two hours, but if you’re not keeping track of the time, the watch doesn’t help you: It doesn’t tell you when the battery is full so you can stop charging.The battery life is bit disappointing. Six years ago, I tried a Sony Ericsson watch that connected to a phone and lasted three weeks on a charge. But the unit weighed nearly half a pound because of its big battery and metal body, and it had only a one-line digital screen. The rest of the face was given over to an analog display. Overall, it was far less useful, and the weight made it uncomfortable. Today, there’s a competing smart watch called the Cookoo that claims to last a year on a button cell battery because it takes full advantage of a new low-energy Bluetooth technology.The Pebble is light but chunky. It’s thick enough that it gets caught in tight shirt cuffs, and it looks odd on a narrow wrist, like most women have.The “lens,” the watch’s window pane, is made of tough plastic. It’s not as hard as the glass covers of top smartphones and watches, and it took me just two weeks to scuff it, though the damage was hardly noticeable.It’s rare for a new type of gadget to find a place in my life, but the Pebble did just that. I’m hoping it will improve through software updates, but if it doesn’t, it’s still a keeper — at least as long it works with the phone I’m using.With more smart watches on the way, the Pebble is a good portent for the field — a sign that computing can get even more useful if it gets close to our skin. A lot of people have gotten out of the habit of wearing watches and use their phones to tell the time instead. The Pebble demonstrates that there’s still life in the watch, when it works with the phone.___Peter Svensson can be reached at site: http://www.getpebble.comKickstarter campaign, now closed:Note to readers: This is a corrected story.

Extinction crisis pushes countries to agree stronger protection for global wildlife

UN News/Daniel DickinsonA giraffe in northern Tanzania. (file)And in recognition that giraffes are at even greater risk than elephants, with populations declining to just “a couple of tens of thousands” owing to habitat and other pressures, the conference agreed that the world’s tallest animal is likely to be threatened with extinction unless its trade is strictly controlled.  Increased protection measures were voted through for Asia’s smooth-coated and small-clawed otters – which are now listed as threatened with extinction – amid habit loss and possible trade in live animals. Under the new otter listing, all commercial trade in the two listed species is now prohibited. Guitarfish trade restrictions increased amid hunt for prized fins The conference also decided to extend protection measures for 18 more sharks including  blacknose and sharpnose guitarfishes, which are highly valued for their fins and already considered endangered by many conservationists.  Shortfin and longfin mako sharks, together with white-spotted and other species of wedgefishes, were also given similar safeguards. Elephant ivory trade ban remains in place  In her closing comments, CITES Secretary-General Ivonne Higuero welcomed the fact that signatories to the Convention had supported wildlife trade that is “sustainable, legal, traceable”. She also warned against complacency in the face of illegal trading linked to criminal gangs operating online. From fish to trees and mammals, 183 parties hear species’ survival is essential to planet “Humanity needs to respond to the growing extinction crisis by transforming the way we manage the world’s wild animals and plants. Business as usual is no longer an option,” she said. From commercially fished species to trees and mammals – including for the first time, giraffes – the 183 parties to the Convention mulled 56 proposals that also extended protection for exotic amphibians and reptiles, which are increasingly popular as domestic pets. “Although there is often less public awareness of the world’s continuing loss of amphibians, reptiles, birds, and smaller mammals, the survival of these species is essential for the fabric of life on Earth,” Ms. Higuero insisted.  “We must dedicate as much attention to such species as we do to high-value fish and timber and large, charismatic mammals.”   Among the decisions taken at the conference, CITES parties urged Mexico to use its navy to prevent fishing vessels from entering a refuge for vaquitas – a near-extinct porpoise. Giraffe populations down to just tens of thousands  UNEP GRID Arendal/Peter ProkoschAfrican bush elephants in the Maasai Mara National Reserve, Kenya. Despite increased poaching in many parts of Africa, the elephant population in Mara is presently growing.On the issue of elephants – whose population has fallen to “a couple of hundred thousand today” according to CITES, the conference rejected proposals to permit the limited trade in ivory from African elephants, meaning that the existing trade ban remains in place. On rhinos, Parties agreed to increased quotas for trophy hunting of adult male black rhinos, almost doubling the current quota of five, subject to strict controls. But proposed trade in southern white rhino horns from Eswatini (Swaziland) and live animals and hunting trophies from Namibia were rejected in a vote. Wildlife sustainability through engagement with local and indigenous communities Emphasizing the need for sustainability in wildlife management, CITES chief Ms. Higuero also noted the willingness of countries to “better engage” with local and indigenous people and to understand their need for adequate incomes and livelihoods.  More than 100 Parties to the Convention spoke on this topic alone, she noted, while underlining that these communities “live on the frontlines of wildlife conservation and sustainable management…without them, CITES will struggle to succeed”. Illegal wildlife trade move online is ‘rapid’, better cooperation needed, says CITES chief In a bid to tackle the illegal wildlife trade and its “rapid” move online, Ms. Higuero also welcomed the fact that the conference had focused on the subregions of West and Central Africa, in areas where there is trade in elephant ivory, pangolins, parrots and rosewood.  Another important decision was the decision to establish the CITES Big Cat Task Force, the CITES chief added, its aim being to tackle illegal trade and promote collaboration on conserving tigers, lions, cheetahs, jaguars and leopards. Highlighting the recognition among countries that they should work more closely with international organizations tasked with tracking down illegal wildlife traders, Ms. Higuero gave the example of one successful enforcement operation that had involved 109 countries.  Codenamed “Operation Thunderball”, it had led to “over 1,800 seizures across all continents, and the arrest of close to 600 suspects. At its latest three-yearly conference, the UN-backed Convention on International Trade in Endangered Species of Wild Fauna and Flora (CITES) revised the trade rules for dozens of species brought low by unstainable trade linked to overharvesting, overfishing and overhunting. #CITESCoP18 this morning formally adopted 3 proposals, submitted by a record number of Parties, to include 18 new #shark species (i.e. mako sharks, guitarfishes & wedgefishes) in #CITES Appendix II.— CITES (@CITES) August 28, 2019 read more

Taoiseach says theyve run into real difficulties around legislating for exclusion zones

first_img Share42 Tweet Email By Christina Finn Taoiseach says they’ve run into ‘real difficulties’ around legislating for exclusion zones at GP surgeries Varadkar says government needs to ensure they are on solid ground if one is going to restrict the right to protest. Thursday 18 Apr 2019, 6:40 AM Apr 18th 2019, 6:41 AM 18,533 Views Image: Sam Boal 69 Comments center_img TAOISEACH LEO VARADKAR has said the government has run into “real difficulties” around legislating for exclusion zones at GP surgeries.When quizzed about the date the law would come into effect, the Taoiseach said he did not have a date for the legislation.“The Minister, Deputy [Simon] Harris, and the Attorney General are working on it but we are running into real difficulties around restricting peaceful protest and free speech.“While we all abhor and disagree with the protests being carried out – at least, most of us do – we enter a difficult space in a democracy when we decide that certain opinions cannot be held and certain types of protests cannot happen.”Last year, Health Minister Simon Harris secured government approval to draft legislative proposals to ensure that premises at which abortion services are provided and the area immediately adjacent are designated as safe access zones.At the time he noted that these provisions would not limit freedom of speech or prevent demonstrations against termination of pregnancy locations other than outside health services.It had been envisaged that the legislation for exclusion zones would be rolled at the same time as abortion services on 1 January.Just two days after abortion services became legal in the State, a group of pro-life protesters picketed a GP practice in Galway. Other campaigners have protested outside other locations such as Our Lady of Lourdes Hospital in Drogheda, Co Louth.Earlier this year, Harris said the government hoped to have draft exclusion zone legislation prepared by this summer – however the legislative agenda, which sets out the agenda for laws the government plans to pass before the summer, states that the safe zone legislation will only go to pre-legislative scrutiny in this Dáil session.A spokesperson for the minister said:  Image: Sam Boal Tweet thisShare on FacebookEmail this article Officials in the Department of Health are working with the Office of the Attorney General on this legislation with the intention of having legislative proposals drafted by this summer.Three pro-choice campaigners, Grainne Griffin, a founding member of the Abortion Rights Campaign (ARC), Orla O’Connor, director of the National Women’s Council of Ireland, and Ailbhe Smyth, convener of the Coalition to Repeal the Eighth Amendment, who were yesterday named on Time magazine’s list of ‘Most Influential’ people for 2019, said their next battle is getting the safe zone law passed. They said it needed to be enacted as a matter of urgency.Sinn Féin’s health spokesperson Louise O’Reilly highlighted to the Taoiseach that last weekend, like many other weekends, women were “being intimidated when they try to go into their local general practice and that general practitioners are being intimidated by people protesting outside their practices”.“This is not acceptable. We were promised legislation on exclusion zones, we were told it would be a priority, and here we are close to the Easter recess and we still have no idea when we will see this legislation.“It should have been dealt with when we were debating the regulation of termination of pregnancies legislation and it was not, although some of us said at the time that we should have done it all together. The reason this was not done was that we were told we would have legislation on exclusion zones early in the new year. We are now in the middle of the year. How long will we have to wait before we see the legislation?” she asked.O’Reilly said women have a right to access the service, for which the Taoiseach replied: “They absolutely do.”However, he added that if “one is going to restrict free speech and the right to protest in a democracy, one needs to be on very solid ground”.A spokesperson for the minister added in a statement to“It is the Minister’s intention to introduce legislation to ensure safe access to premises in which termination of pregnancy services may be provided.“The intention of the legislation would be to allow patients, service providers, healthcare staff and members of the public to enter such premises without fear of intimidation or harassment. While it was originally intended to provide for such safe access in the Health (Regulation of Termination of Pregnancy) Bill 2018, a number of legal issues were identified during the drafting process. In order to allow full consideration of these issues, Government approved the drafting of a separate piece of legislation on safe access to health services.” Short URL last_img read more

Insurers Offer Recovery Advice To Texans Impacted By Hurricane Harvey

first_imgPCI Resources:2017 Interactive Home Inventory GuidePCI 2017 Have A Plan Insurance Checklist2017 Hurricane Fact SheetContractor Fraud TipsPCI Member Company Toll-Free Policyholder Claim Phone NumbersPCI Public Policy Solutions for Catastrophe InsuranceOther ResourcesNational Hurricane Center (Check the current weather patterns here.)FEMANational Flood Insurance ProgramWeather Ready Nation: HurricanesRed Cross – Preparing for HurricanesInsurance Institute for Business & Home Safety PCIJoe Woods, PCI vice president of state government relations.The Property Casualty Insurers Association of America (PCI) today offered recovery advice to Texans in assessing the damage to their properties and contacting their insurers.“Insurers are ready to respond and help families in the recovery process,” said Joe Woods, PCI vice president of state government relations. “Catastrophe teams prepare for storms like this and are ready to help policyholders. It’s important to make sure you have your agent or insurance company’s contact information readily available. If your home or automobile is damaged, call your insurer immediately, this will help in the recovery process.”Most severe weather-related events are covered by either homeowners, renters or commercial insurance policies. Renters insurance also provides coverage to policyholder possessions under this peril. Business owners are covered under their commercial policies. Protection from windstorm or hail damage for cars is covered under the comprehensive portion of the automobile insurance policy.Flood damage is typically covered through the National Flood Insurance Program rather than homeowners insurance. However, cars, trucks and other vehicles damaged by flood water are typically covered under an auto policy’s comprehensive coverage.“Contact your insurance company or agent to discuss what is covered by your policy,” said Woods. Contrary to recent misleading social media posts, the insurance claims process will not change under reform legislation (HB 1774) that was passed by the Texas Legislature this year and goes into effect on September 1. Instead, the new law adds new checks and balances to the system to dissuade unnecessary, manufactured lawsuits.“Policyholders do not lose any protections with these changes that go into effect on September 1. The new law does not bar access to the courts nor does it prevent consumers from retaining legal counsel. Consumers still have all legal remedies available under the consumer protection laws in the event an insurer engages in bad faith conduct. The Texas Department of Insurance is available to handle any complaints about insurers. The new law does not take away any right to sue and does not diminish any cause of action that a person has against an insurance company.“Rumors on social media are inappropriate scare tactics that are trying to capitalize in a time of widespread pain and misfortune following one of the worst natural disasters in decades.” PCI Tips if You Experience a Loss from a Storm:•             Secure property from further damage or theft.•             Contact your insurance agent or company representative as soon as possible to report damage.•             Inventory losses and photograph damage to provide to your insurance adjustor. Save receipts.•             If you are a business owner, keep detailed records of business activity that is negatively affected due to the tornado or storm and keep a list of extra expenses during the interruption. Prepare records to show the income from the business before and after the loss.•             Many standard homeowners and renters’ policies provide reimbursement of additional living expenses when the property is determined to be uninhabitable due to damage. This provision helps with paying for increases to necessary living expenses, such as temporary housing and restaurant meals. In addition, extra expenses, such as overnight parking and laundry services may also be covered. Additional living expense coverage does not pay for all living expenses, so contact your insurance company or agent for a list of what your policy will cover.•             Be careful about unscrupulous contractors following a natural disaster. Contact your insurer, agent, or local business bureau for references on potential contractors and ask for certificates of liability and workers’ compensation before signing contracts.Business Recovery Information•             In the aftermath of natural disasters, businesses should take immediate steps to minimize damage, speed up the claims process and accelerate business recovery.  Assess the damage and report all damage to your insurance company agent as soon as possible.•             Take pictures of your building and contents to document the damage.•             Check for safety hazards, such as downed trees, branches, downed power wires and leaking gas.•             Keep all receipts for anything purchased for that purpose so they can be submitted to your insurance company.•             Be prepared to list the “replacement cost” of each item and its actual cash value. Replacement cost is what it would cost today to replace an item with another one just like it. Actual cash value is what the item is really worth after deducting for depreciation and wear.•             Restore your utilities, phone service, gas lines and other important links as soon as possible.•             Business interruption coverage is complex and will vary by insurers. It is important to read your policy and understand what is and is not covered.•             As you seek contractors to make repairs, deal only with reliable, licensed professionals. Get written bids from the contractor, but don’t sign any contracts or give a deposit until you have seen your insurance adjuster.•             If you or your employees get involved in clean-up efforts, use safety items like proper eyewear, gloves, hardhats, dust masks and respirators.•             Keep detailed records of business activity and extra expenses during the interruption period, and prepare records to show the income from the business both before and after the loss.center_img Sharelast_img read more

Handson Acer ConceptD 7 Review MacBook ProBeating Specs for Less

first_imgRAMUp to 16GB, upgradable to 32GBUp to 16GB Michael Andronico, Managing Editor on The Acer ConceptD 7 and ConceptD 5 represent the company’s first true attempt to challenge the 15-inch MacBook Pro head-on.The D7 packs beefier specs than Apple’s flagship laptop for $100 less, while the D5 supplies a decent amount of oomph for just $1,699, which is $100 less than the latest 13-inch MacBook Pro.I had a chance to go hands-on with both systems at Acer’s launch event and came away impressed with their displays — and comfier keyboards with actual travel — but the designs didn’t quite wow me.Acer ConceptD 7 and ConceptD 5 Specs Acer ConceptD 7Acer ConceptD 5 Display15.6-inch, 3840 x 2160 IPS display15.6-inch, 3840 x 2160 IPS display by Taboolaby TaboolaSponsored LinksSponsored LinksPromoted LinksPromoted LinksYou May LikeGrepolis – Free Online GameGamers Around the World Have Been Waiting for this GameGrepolis – Free Online GameUndoVerizon WirelessThis new phone will blow your mind.Verizon WirelessUndoTODAYPolice Identify Girl Licking Ice Cream Tub In Viral VideoTODAYUndo247 SportsThese Redesigned NFL Helmets Are Better Than the Real Thing247 SportsUndoCIO for DOMOBrandPost: Successful Digital Transformation Begins with a Cultural TransformationCIO for DOMOUndoRealtor.comJeffrey Epstein’s $56 Million Mansion Could Become a Real-Estate NightmareRealtor.comUndoAdvertisement PortsEthernet, USB 3.1 (3), Thunderbolt 3, HDMI 2.0, Mini DisplayPort 1.4USB Type-C, USB 3.1 (3), HDMI, SD card reader Michael Andronico, Managing Editor StorageUp to 1TB SSDUp to 1TB SSD AdvertisementDisplayBoth the ConceptD 5 and ConceptD 7 boast one of the best displays in their class, a 15.6-inch 4K display that is Pantone-validated. In person the panels looked colorful if not super bright, and the matte finish resists glare. The bezels are fairly narrow but not XPS 13 thin.What you don’t get is touch support, but that’s not a big trade-off given the target audience.Serious Power without the NoiseThe Acer ConceptD 5 packs an 8th-gen Core i5 or i7 processor and AMD Radeon RX vega M GL graphics, so it should provide enough muscle for less demanding creative pros. The ConceptD 7 is the true powerhouse here, which steps things up to a 9th-gen Core i7 CPU and Nvidia RTX 2080 Max-Q graphics, though you can start with a RTX 2060 GPU. The best part is that, unlike the sometimes-noisy MacBook Pro, Acer promises that each of these ConceptD machines operate with little to no noise. You can expect less than 40 decibels, compared to 46.8 dB for Apple’s laptop.Design Given how much Acer is charging for the Concept D7 and D5, I was hoping for a bit more premium of a look and feel. Don’t get me wrong. These systems are fairly sleek. The metal chassis is made of magnesium alloy on the top and palm rest and magnesium-lithium alloy on the bottom.center_img GraphicsNvidia GeForce RTX 2080 Max-Q or Nvidia GeForce RTX 2060AMD Radeon RX Vega M GL A devout gamer and tech enthusiast, Mike Andronico joined the Laptop team in July 2013.

The only real flair are the tapered front edges. The Concept D5 is fairly light for a 15-inch laptop at just 3.3 pounds, while the D7 is a heftier 4.6 pounds.Keyboard and PortsGiven all the complaints Apple has faced with is MacBook Pro keyboards, Acer didn’t need to do much to win in this category. But I do like that the keys felt fairly snappy during my brief hands on; there’s definitely more travel here than on the MacBook Pro. The touchpad is nice and roomy, too, and seemed responsive. The port selection on the D5 includes a USB Type-C port, three regular size USB 3.1 ports (huzzah!), along with an SD Card reader. The MacBook Pro makes due with just Thunderbolt 3.The Concept D7 adds a MiniDisplay Port and Ethernet but loses the SD Card slot. OutlookMake no mistake. The Concept D line is a gamble for Acer, but it was also new to the gaming arena before it made a splash with its Predator and Nitro lines. The specs of the Concept D5 and D7 look good for the money, but we’ll have to see how well these systems perform in our labs and in the real world before we can say whether Apple should be worried. Best Ultrabooks 2019 CPU9th Gen Intel Core i78th Gen Intel Core i7/i5last_img read more

We believe every advisor wants to be proud of their brand Jeff

first_img Wednesday, September 20, 2017 Travel Edge CEO & Owner Jeff Willner started Kensington Tours from his kitchen table in 2006, with a box of office supplies from his last job. Like many home-based advisors, he went without a paycheck for over a year when times were lean.Originally specializing in African safaris, Kensington Tours almost went out of business several times with the 2007 Kenya election violence that cut tourism in half, and the global economic meltdown in 2008.That was then and this is now. Kensington Tours grew slowly but surely over the years and is now a $100 million tour company.Not only that, but 6 years ago Willner started acquiring travel agencies with the goal of creating the top luxury agency in North America.With a corporate family where everyone trusts each other to work hard, and a meaningful investment in making the world a better place, “you can’t help but continue to grow”, says Willner in his role as CEO and Owner of Travel Edge.Travel agents might be familiar with the name Worldview. “Worldview has always been a part of the Travel Edge Group of companies,” says Willner. “We built the company with a series of acquisitions starting in 2011 that included luxury leisure agencies and corporate agencies.”The company was called Worldview in the press, says Willner, but really it was a collection of 12 acquired agencies, most of whom continued to operate under their own names including: The Travel Network (Toronto), Pisa Brothers Travel (New York), Travel Door (California), and Century Travel (Atlanta). The company currently has 11 offices in Canada, the U.S. and Bermuda.”The decision to re-brand to Travel Edge was based on a desire to bring the company’s leading edge technology and combine it with the decades of experience and client relationships from the agencies, he adds.“There was a general feeling from our discussions with our agents and management that we needed a fresh start. Travel Edge was selected based on the idea that we provide a competitive edge to our agents, and our agents provide better travel experiences and a lifestyle edge for their clients.”In addition to the name, the company wanted a new logo and an updated look and feel. The new logo has two components: the stylized ‘route map’ insignia and the Travel Edge wordmark.Willner says he’s confident in Travel Edge’s strategy to become the largest and best luxury agency in North America. Travel Edge is now a $750 million company with over 750 advisors specializing in Leisure, Corporate & Events, and Tours travel.Most of the company’s advisors – about 70% – are home-based. “Many have decades of experience but a growing number are professionals who have moved to travel as a second or third career. We have carefully built a support team to help our agents grow their sales and most importantly grow their profits.”Willner says Travel Edge’s advisor services are intentionally designed to support agents wherever they choose to work. “We are committed to consistent communication and accessible training including recorded sessions,” he said.He says Travel Edge offers the highest, achievable commission levels in air, cruise, hotels, resorts and tours. “But what is interesting about Travel Edge is we also offer full professional services including finance, HR, technology, three different GDS, ClientBase, email, marketing, legal, and more. So agents have the best of both worlds: industry leading commissions plus the benefits of full service.”Ultimately the company’s “true competitive advantage” is the Agent Digital Experience (ADX) tool, he says. Travel Edge has invested over $20 million in the past five years to build a modern travel management tool that “transforms agent profitability”. “They can bundle multiple products with a single click, instantly show Virtuoso amenities, cross sell/upsell, see commissions live, auto invoice, and stay informed with online reports. We believe ADX is truly transformative for the luxury leisure agent.”Asked what sort of reaction he’s heard from Travel Edge travel advisors about the rebranding, Willner says feedback on the new brand has been “really positive”.“[At our] road show to almost all of our branches I had the pleasure of chatting directly to most of our advisors. We believe every advisor wants to be proud of their brand. We are on a journey to create a luxury brand that can hold its own across all industries. And that is a message that has really resonated with our employees, agents and the rest of the industry. They are also very excited that as our brand starts to gain awareness it will result in more leads and more closed sales.”Is Travel Edge still pursuing the acquisition of more agencies? “Candidly we have been very successful as a company with double-digit organic growth, hundreds of advisors who have joined our Advisor Program and ongoing acquisitions,” says Willner, adding, “I believe with a corporate family that can trust each other to work hard, and a meaningful investment in making the world a better place, you can’t help but continue to grow.” << Previous PostNext Post >> Share Tags: Sphere, Travel Edgecenter_img “We believe every advisor wants to be proud of their brand”: Jeff Willner talks about the Travel Edge difference Travelweek Group Posted bylast_img read more
