True, the industry hasn’t been growing at its scorching pre-crisis rate, but the potential still eclipses most other markets. In 2010, Santander grew its Latin American insurance premiums by almost a third to $1.9bn, and there is considerable scope for further gains. In earthquake-prone Chile, the region’s most mature market, gross written premiums are equivalent to just 3.9 per cent of GDP, followed by Brazil (3.1 per cent), Argentina (2.6 per cent), Mexico (2 per cent), and Uruguay (1.6 per cent). In the UK and Switzerland, the figure is nearer 13 and 10 per cent respectively. Santander’s rationale for selling up is two-fold. First it thinks, rightly, that an insurance specialist will grow the pie more quickly (even if the Spanish slice is now half the size). And a $1.2bn capital gain will help it fatten up to digest recent acquisitions and meet stricter capital requirements. Tags: NULLlast_img read more

Florida swamps: A living organism

first_img April 14, 2019 at 1:13 pm Chuck, you just described my favorite place to be, when I was growing up, during the 40’s! We had some cypress trees that the water was so deep you needed a small boat to get around. One area that I loved was close enough to town that they used it for the town dump. Some young cypress trees were not so old and the water around them not so deep, with patches of high ground enough to walk through. Me and my dog spent many hours there and the memories of those days remind me of the great times we had! Sometimes wish I could go back! Thanks Chuck, you really have a way with words!! charles towne charles towne The Anatomy of Fear April 14, 2019 at 9:07 am CSH, what a wonderful place the swamp is. Personally, for me a swamp is a place to get wet in, and lost. A swamp is one of those rare and mysterious places on earth one can go to be astounded and perhaps a bit bewildered. One never knows what is hidden there or what is lurking beneath those dark waters. Yes, it doesn’t matter what your mode of travel it is always a mystery that most sane and civilized people avoid. Have fun, visit a swamp; today! Chaz Free webinar for job seekers on best interview answers, hosted by Goodwill June 11 My dear friend, we are so connected! Last evening I spent the twilight ours enjoying those critters that inhabit our Florida swamps. We shared sunset with gators, birds, snakes, turtles and only God knows what else was hidden beneath the surface. These marshy lands are truly one of Florida’s greatest jewels, aren’t they? Thank you for creating such a vivid picture for our readers! Reply Herb, to share with others the gifts that we have been endowed with by the creator is a joyful responsibility not to be taken lightly. That we can enjoy the sharing as we bless others with it is nothing short of a wonder, actually a miracle. What is your gift my friend? Could it be your ever expanding wisdom? Or your ability to greet others with friendship? And whatever that gift is, are you sharing it? Your friend, Chaz Hey Mike, isn’t life grand? The mud walks I took my students on were not “mud” walks, but “MUD CRAWLS!” The water was mere inches deep, the mud was about a foot deep. Now pretend that you are a raccoon. We are going to cross the swamp on our hands and knees with our chins just clear of the water. From this perception you see the swamp; through the eyes, hopefully, at least this was my goal, of the raccoon. Yes, you might say it is a different experience? Life is composed of memories isn’t it pal. May our friend God walk and crawl through the joys of life with us today.

The magic of nature has a way of transporting us to other worlds outside of and other than we are accustomed to doesn’t it? If only each of us could start over again anew, with eyes wide open to all the miracles and wonders the Creator has made for our enjoyment. I would like to take each of you out “there” when you were and are young to enable you to experience the beauty and wonders of nature without fear. Imagine, just imagine!

We live in ourown little section and rarelyeven consider a swamp, letalone go to one. If you havenever taken an airboat ride, thatis a pretty safe vantage point toview all the happenings of a swamp. But one of my favoritesis Lake Apopka Wildlife Drive, orbetter known as LAWD. An 11midrive through “swampy, marshy” area full of wildlife and wonderfulpicture opportunities, only open on the weekends.

CSG Reply This reminded me of my two trips as a chaperone on the “Mud Walk” at the SCPS Environmental Center when each of my children engaged in their right of passage during fifth grade. It was an excellent educational experience for 5th graders and adults as well. The person I felt sorry for was the bus driver(s) who had to clean the bus after returning mud-laden students and chaperones back to the school. Thanks for a trip down memory lane and for reminding me how wonderfully mysterious nature is. Reply charles towne April 14, 2019 at 9:22 am Donald, yeah I know exactly what you mean!

in swirls, loops and curlicues, thus adapting wonderfully as the tree bends and sways in the wind.  If the vines were straight and inflexible they would break from the strain, therefore, those loops and swirls act like coil springs, allowing the vines to gently stretch and yield, and survive.If we could behold it from the perfect eye of omniscience we could see the swamp breathe, for as the trees transpire, or in a sense sweat, they pump water into the atmosphere from their leaves, this water meets warm air and condenses into rain thus the swamp exhales thin white clouds of condensing moisture that rises above us like the breath of some sleeping creature on a cold winter dawn.And how about the sounds?  Have you ever heard the roar of a bull alligator?  Or how about the hammering of a pileated woodpecker, or its demented laughter.Oh sure, there are some that we recognize such as the chittering and scrape of a pair of squirrels as they chase each other through the foliage, or the chirr of a prowling raccoon or the deep echoing bass of the bullfrog.But then, quite suddenly we stop and stare as some creature screams, the scream to be suddenly cut off in the jaws of some hungry predator.On the stillest day, we might hear a large bough break from its parent tree and crash to the ground, or the racket of a dead, dry palm frond clattering its way to the ground.And then there are the night silences.  One moment the swamp is alive with the trills of countless frogs and insects and perhaps the drowsy chirping of a sleepy bird and then, quite suddenly, there is absolute stillness; leaving one to wonder what is going to happen next, for at that time and in that place you know that a predator is on the prowl.So then, this is the swamp, the living swamp, and thank God, I love it!                           AN OUTDOORSMAN’S PRAYER         Father God, you are the creator of all, everything that was made was made by you.  There is so much death that surrounds us, we see it every day and everywhere.  Death surrounds us and yet it was not your plan, for you designed us to live forever.  Some believe in you in an abstract way, they acknowledge that there must be something, something, in control of the chaos that seems to run rampant in the world today, but that was not your plan.  Since Adam’s fall sin has had its day, but that will cease, and your divine plan will ultimately be fulfilled.  Praise you oh magnificent God.  Praise you for creating us to be reasoning, intelligent men, so we would be able to enjoy and protect what you have made. Sadly there are those that claim that you do not exist, or worse yet, that you did exist, but now are dead.  For some that might be true, but as for me and my house, we will believe, and serve you. Let us look at nature and see your hand at work, knowing that you are ultimately, and ever more will be, in control. I praise you, Father, I praise you and I love you, In Jesus’ Holy and beautiful name I ask it, Amen. Charles Towne is first and foremost a Christian. An octogenarian, author, journalist, wildlife photographer, naturalist, caregiver, and survivor, his life has been and continues to be, a never-ending adventure filled with possibilities never imagined. He has adopted the philosophy that to Live fully, laugh uproariously, love passionately, and learn like there is no tomorrow, is a formula for a long and joy-filled life.last_img read more

Area Park Studio is a base in Japan for our friend and renowned Korean photographer Area Park. Park wanted to establish a base for his activities in Japan, the hometown of his wife who is a lacquer artist. After searching for a suitable location, they commissioned us, as Japanese architects, to design the building.Save this picture!© Kim YongkwanAs Park’s photographic works constantly question photography’s role and remind us of what we have forgotten, his studio had to also represent this outlook.Save this picture!© Kim YongkwanSave this picture!First Floor PlanThe site was located next to a tree-covered mound called Nakazato Fuji. When Japan was still a “closed” country, faith in Mount Fuji was strong among the commoners, and these kinds of small Fujizukas (manmade mounds representing Mt.Fuji) were often constructed in areas across Edo (old Tokyo). It was perhaps Park’s artistic sensibilities that led him, almost inevitably, to find this sacred site ripe with spirits of the earth that so many Japanese people have long forgotten. A building that would adjoin such a site should be simple and primary, as if it had grown out of the earth.Save this picture!© Kim YongkwanThe client’s demands included an atelier, a gallery, a guest room and spaces for living. The gallery was placed in the center to create a space in which living and creating are well-integrated and flow together. The interior space has only a few doors so that all the spaces are connected both in plan as well as section. This kind of three-dimensional composition connects the gallery −the most important space −to the living, dining and bedroom areas allows it to naturally participate in all aspects of the two artists’ everyday lives. The rooftop terrace has a view of Nakazato Fuji.Save this picture!IsometricThe gallery exhibits works not just by the couple themselves but also other young artists. The completed house is a gathering ground for artists, curators and art collectors from across the globe. A small hub of activities, in which art forms the focus of life and connects the region as well as the world, was thus born in a corner of Tokyo.Save this picture!© Kim YongkwanProject gallerySee allShow lessForest House / Shma Company LimitedSelected Projects27 Collective Housing at Île de Nantes / Atelier Maxime Schmitt ArchitecteSelected Projects Share Photographs:  Kim Yongkwan, Kazumasa Dobashi Manufacturers Brands with products used in this architecture project ArchDaily 2015 Photographs “COPY” ShareFacebookTwitterPinterestWhatsappMailOrhttps://www.archdaily.com/953427/area-park-studio-naoko-kasuya-kao-plus-atsushi Clipboard CopyAbout this officeAtsushi + Naoko Kasuya / KAOOfficeFollow#TagsProjectsBuilt ProjectsSelected ProjectsResidential ArchitectureHousesInterior DesignOffices InteriorsPhotography & ArchitectureOn FacebookTokyo cityJapanPublished on December 21, 2020Cite: “Area Park Studio / Atsushi + Naoko Kasuya / KAO” 20 Dec 2020.

Solidarity drives out fascists

first_imgPortland, Ore. — A paltry showing of barely a dozen of Joey Gibson’s “Patriot Prayer” goons disgraced Portland’s Waterfront Park on Sept. 10 before they were swiftly driven out by anti-fascist warriors backed by thousands of working people acting in solidarity.Portland police declared this action to be “violent and criminal” after they realized they would not be able to protect the gaggle of reactionaries from the crowd. The cops sprayed anti-fascists with “bear” mace and fired pepper ball bullets into the crowd, striking a Workers World comrade in the hand. The fascists fled under heavy police escort, at which point the crowd took to the streets, marching despite police threats to fire more pepper balls. The police retreated, and the anti-fascists regrouped in a park, where speeches were given by socialist organizations and representatives from the Indigenous community.At the park it was announced that the main force of Patriot Prayer had rallied in their headquarter city of Vancouver, Wash., across the Columbia River from Portland. The Portland anti-fascists made their way north to provide support for their comrades in Vancouver. Portland police followed suit, making the crossing to help their northern counterparts in the Vancouver Police Department prevent the far-right demonstration from being interrupted.However, once again the white supremacists were overwhelmed and surrounded — a crushing defeat in their own hometown!FacebookTwitterWhatsAppEmailPrintMoreShare thisFacebookTwitterWhatsAppEmailPrintMoreShare thislast_img read more

A division bench of Justice B V Nagarathna and Justice N S Sanjay Gowda extended the relief after a request was made by the government counsel to take up the matter for hearing on November 18, as the Advocate General is to appear in the matter and address the court. The bench allowed the request and posted the matter for hearing on November 23, till then the interim relief is to continue. The doctors have challenged the compulsory One year Urban service rule for Postgraduate Doctors who had taken admission through Management and NRI quota. The doctors are also challenging an order dated August 30, 2019, by which the court had upheld the constitutional validity of section 4 of the KCS Act. The appellants have claimed that they have no issue serving under the Disaster Management Act, dehors the KCS act. The bench had earlier raised a preliminary objection to the maintainability of the appeal holding that as per the Karnataka Compulsory Training Service By Candidates Completed Medical Courses Act 2012, a candidate includes all students belonging to all quota. It had said “What is so superior to the management quota that you cannot do service for one year in the state. The service you will do is not for gratis, they will pay you.” Advocate Akkamahadevi Hiremath, appearing for the appellants had argued that when they had taken admission in the private colleges, the Act was stayed by an order passed by the court. Moreover, the brochures issued by the private colleges also did not mention this rule of doing the compulsory service for students admitted under the management quota or NRI student’s. She even mentioned that the students have paid lakhs and crores of rupees for their education and since they have not received any benefit from the state government the dictum of ‘quid pro quo’ would not be applicable in their case.Subscribe to LiveLaw, enjoy Ad free version and other unlimited features, just INR 599 Click here to Subscribe.
