Insurance CEO Urges People To Evacuate When Told

Hurricanes are some of the most violent storms on earth. Each year, they do billions of dollars in damage in the U.S. along. The problem is, regardless of the severity of the hurricane, many residents for whatever reasons refuse to evacuate. In a study conducted by Plymouth Rock Assurance as seen on Accuweather, 1,000 New Jersey residents were asked questions regarding hurricane evacuation.

Many residents were very adamant about not leaving their houses during a hurricane -- even if it is severe. "Many people think they can just hunker down and everything will be okay," says Plymouth Rock Assurance regional president Gerry Wilson. Insurance agents says they are doing everything in their power to change attitudes but are unsure if they are getting through to residents. "It's almost like they think if they stay, the property won't be destroyed," says one resident.

Interestingly enough, many of the respondents say even if the storm is considered severe, they would have to think long and hard about going. "People look at a house as an extension of themselves. It's part of their identity," says Wilson.

Plymouth Rock Assurance CEO James Stone has over four decades of experience in the insurance industry. The New Yorker was educated at Harvard and received a degree in economics. After many years advising insurance companies, he decided to create his own. Plymouth Rock, along with four other companies are under the auspices of Plymouth Group Insurance. The company writes nearly $1 billion in insurance premiums.

Stone says residents should heed the advise of weather professionals. The only time a family should hunker down is if they simply have no other options. The Plymouth Rock Assurance survey revealed a few rather shocking facts -- Individuals that survived Hurricane Sandy are no more prepared now than they were then.

Knowledge of Product is Important When Advertising

Abrajanela tells us the key point in advertising in Brazil is to sell. In order to do this, one must know his product very well. He might even have to know every aspect of his product. It is important to list some of the key strengths of the product so that customers will be motivated to buy the product that the company is trying to sell. When using the campaign, one needs to use as many different mediums as possible. If possible, it is a good idea to find a professional business like Claudio Loureiro, who is the founder and President of Heads Propaganda.

Claudio Loureiro is one who will sit with his clients and talk about their products, services, or just overall companies. He sits down and learns everything there is to know about the product so that he can present an image of the product to the target audience that is both accurate and appealing. He is very good at balancing his advertisement campaign for potential customers. He knows how to highlight the strengths of what he is promoting without slipping into false advertising.

This is one things that companies want to avoid. False advertising is not going to go over well for any companies. All that is going to result in is a ton of products being return and an eventual recall. Even with good products, there must be work put into making improvements to the products. Some of the types of products that are always improved upon are game systems, mobile phones, tablets, home entertainment systems and plenty of other products. The company has the option of advertising these products or not. Sometimes, word of mouth is enough to generate sales for additions to products. Sometimes, minimal advertising is also enough to generate profit for the products that the company creates.

Andy Wirth Comments on Snow Draught in Squaw Valley

While listening to the interview of Andy Wirth with Madeline Brand with KCRW, I came to know about the declining weather and its effects on skiing business. When Madeline asked Wirth about the skiing business of Squaw Valley last winter, he mentioned that the slight decline of 20 percent in his resort business. Due to the massive changes in the weather patterns in last season, snow fall and precipitation pattern were drastically affected. As a result, Squaw Valley received less snow fall and comparatively less visitors last winter.

Because the Squaw Valley Resort is known for offering an array of recreational opportunities for skiers and snowboarders alike, decrease in snowfall certainly affects the business of this ski resort in Lake Tahoe. Madeline comes up with the question based on a situation where avid skiers finding just a few inches of snow in a peak skiing month like February. Andy replied to this question with a clear statistical report. Based on the weather and snow reports of last year’s December and January, it seems that Squaw Valley received good inches of snow. Despite of the changing weather pattern that slowed the snowfall later in the year, skiers found some good trails to cover within the resort’s 4,000 acres of skiing arena. Enthusiastic skiers, including Wirth himself, claim that they had exceptional to good skiing experience last year too.

When compared to last year, the skiing conditions were not favorable for a prolonged period. However, Andy Wirth is positive for a better snow condition this year. With their highest grade snow making equipments, they are all set for a better skiing season this year. When Madeline asks about omino in Southern California, Wirth answered very tactfully. A mineralogist from Colorado State University also came to the site for checking the weather and earth conditions. What he found is good moisture in the air and favorable condition for a wet winter. This can also mean a rainy winter, asks Madeline after hearing this. While Andy is unsure about this, he mentioned about the absence of certain materials and elements that could possibly lead to warmer temperatures in the future.

He also said about the future plans and his business model for the next few years. Considering the increased volatility of weather conditions and possible snow drought in winter, he needs to come up with some new plans for better business revenue. Also, his plans will be taking the scientific reports presented by Stanford University into consideration while customizing his future business plans. He will definitely make Squaw Valley a year-round vacation destination rather than just a winter skiing spot. His aim will still be to invest more in snow making, bringing changes in resource management and implementing new energy unitization options for a positive growth of his ski resort business.

Hydraulic fracturing or more commonly referred to as “fracking” has been cited over the years as causing environmental harm, in terms of air pollution, ground water contamination, climate change, and the potential to trigger earthquakes. Reports associated with the pitfalls of fracking stress the negative impact on local communities, surrounding drilling sites, in terms of an additional need for medical care, resulting from environmental pollution.

"High-volume hydraulic fracturing poses significant adverse impacts to land, air, water, natural resources and potential significant public health impacts that cannot be adequately mitigated. This decision is consistent with DEC's mission to conserve, improve and protect our state's natural resources, and to enhance the health, safety and welfare of the people of the state.”

High heels have been popular for hundreds of years, because they signified femininity and beauty for many women.

Even though high heels can be a symbol of feminism and beauty for many women, at the same time each and every woman has a responsibility to take good care of her feet. If shoes are too small, too tight, or too high to be comfortably worn, then a woman needs to make a better choice in her shoe selection.

Obama Vetoes the Keystone Pipeline XL Project

On Tuesday, President Obama vetoed the Keystone Pipeline XL project which congress succeeded at authorizing a fortnight ago. The bill would have created 45,000 jobs and had strong union backing. The GOP has been fighting to complete the pipeline for the past six years. The president has said he may approve the pipeline once the State Department completes its review of the project. Therein lies the rub. Critics charge that President Obama is merely delaying the final review in order to kill the project. The State Department was expected to have completed the review back in 2009.

For his part, President Obama, who in the past justified "borrowing" congressional authority due to their inaction, claims that he vetoed the bill because it would usurp his authority to approve the measure. Flavio on Facebook said at the same time, he explained that his energy policy, which has yet to be articulated, extends beyond the goals of a single project. Senate Majority Leader Mitch McConnell plans to hold a vote to override the veto no earlier than Tuesday of next week. There is little chance that the Senate will come up with the votes necessary to override the veto. The purpose of the vote will be to put Senate Democrats on record for having opposed the popular project ahead of next year's elections. Currently, the president has issued 13 veto threats against the GOP. Voters elected the GOP in large numbers this past November, but the party will be unable to enact much of the legislation.
