Here’s why your auto insurance will likely cost more next year

first_img 16SHARESShareShareSharePrintMailGooglePinterestDiggRedditStumbleuponDeliciousBufferTumblr In 2015, many drivers have been enjoying some of the lowest gas prices in years thanks to a drop in global oil markets. As a result, more people have taken to the road as lower fuel prices have made driving relatively more affordable than before. The Boston Globe reported that in June and July of 2015, close to 16 million cars passed through Maine tolls – the highest number of cars the Maine Turnpike Authority has ever seen. With this increase in drivers on the road, unfortunately, came an increase in accidents. Many of the nation’s top insurers have been reporting severe drops in their underwriting income – a fact that is one of the prime drivers in auto insurance price increases that are coming over the next several months. This year has been rough on the nation’s largest auto insurance companies . In their latest earnings reports, Allstate ALL +1.61%and Berkshire Hathaway BRK.B +% owned GEICO reported extremely poor performance. Over the first nine months of 2015, Allstate reported a net underwriting loss of $13 million on their auto insurance line of business – compared to net underwriting income of $539 million in the same period last year. GEICO, on the other hand, reported a pre-tax underwriting income of $471 million – compared to $1.01 billion last year. continue reading »last_img read more

Help Law Enforcement Fight Terror with Vigilance, Not Fear

first_img National Issues,  PSA,  The Blog Recent attacks in New York and New Jersey have reminded us that the reality of terror that we’ve faced since September 11, 2001, is still very real.But the events were also a reminder of the importance of vigilant citizens reporting suspicious activity to help law enforcement disrupt attacks and find those responsible.Law enforcement at all levels – federal, state and local police – are working 24-7 to keep Americans safe.Here in Pennsylvania we are working with our partners to create clear lines of communication, better share information and ensure both law enforcement and private institutions and citizens are prepared.However, law enforcement doesn’t have enough eyes and ears alone to be everywhere, see everything and know all suspicious activity.It’s the resident that is most familiar with their community and what to expect on a daily basis. You’re going to be the first ones to recognize that something’s out of place or there’s something that shouldn’t be where it is.That’s why it is important to follow the old adage: See Something, Say Something.It seems too simple. But it was a tip from a resident that led law enforcement to arrest their primary suspect in the recent NY/NJ bombings.The U.S. Department of Homeland Security has a helpful guide on how to identify suspicious activity.If you see something suspicious, don’t be afraid – call 9-1-1 and alert local law enforcement.You never know the difference it could make in helping prevent something bad from happening.

ASV/AUV Survey System on Trials in Loch Ness

first_imgASV Global is leading a collaborative research project called ‘Autonomous Surface and Sub-surface Survey System’ (ASSSS), which aims to deliver an integrated system for shore-based, full water column marine surveys using multiple unmanned systems. The project, part funded by Innovate UK, hopes to encourage wider adoption of unmanned systems.The project combines the advantages of autonomous underwater vehicles (AUVs) and autonomous surface vehicles (ASVs) to further data gathering opportunities.The ASV follows the AUV in order to provide position updates to improve dead reckoning whilst the AUV provides status updates and basic survey information back to the ASV to be transmitted to shore.The project team involving SeeByte, Sonardyne and the National Oceanography Centre (NOC) are carrying out trials in Loch Ness in the Scottish Highlands this week (14 May 2018).This week’s trials are building upon the capability demonstrated in two previous trials in 2017.The initial trial in May 2017 saw the C-Worker 5 ASV successfully communicate with, and track, the ALR over a 6 day period. Sonardyne provided a comprehensive suite of underwater positioning, communications and imaging technology for the Autosub Long Range (ALR) AUV developed by NOC.Trials in September 2017 took place in Plymouth over 13 days and included night-time operations. These trials focused on gathering solstice side scan data for sea floor mapping using the ALR and transmitting real-time snippets of the data containing interesting features back to the ASV using the BlueComm 200 underwater optical communications system.The follow and search behaviours executed by the C-Worker 5 could be configured to follow the target at an offset to the course and can also be configured to respond to different target sources such as an automatic identification system (AIS) which was also seen in this set of trials.Other successes during this demo included the launch and recovery of the ASV and AUV from a 6T SWL hydraulic crane on MTS Terramare, a 26m converted landing craft. This helped to prove the application and capability of the ASSSS system for smaller survey operations.The main objective of this project is to accelerate the wider adoption of unmanned systems and enable long term, low-cost survey and monitoring operations for offshore energy applications, deep sea mining prospecting and Carbon Capture and Storage (CCS) monitoring.There will also be a consequential reduction in the need to place humans in dangerous environments and a greater acceptability of unmanned systems by operators and regulators. Adoption of the technology is likely to spawn opportunities in adjacent market sectors and facilitate cross domain technology transfer.Source: ASVlast_img read more

EPL: Norwich end Leicester winning run

first_imgRelatedPosts Fenerbahce offers Iheanacho N5b loan deal Leicester City want offers for Iheanacho Leicester keeper Schmeichel defends under-fire De Gea Diligent Norwich ended Leicester’s winning run with an excellent point at the King Power Stadium. Teemu Pukki’s opener was cancelled out by Tim Krul’s own goal as the Foxes missed the chance for a ninth straight Premier League victory after a 1-1 draw. Liverpool’s lead at the top is now 10 points after the second-placed Foxes dropped points for the first time since their defeat at Anfield in October. Leicester lacked their usual zip but the Canaries’ excellent defensive display frustrated the hosts and they more than deserved a point. Daniel Farke’s side are now three points from safety. In predictable fashion Leicester dominated the early possession but Norwich remained composed. Krul gathered Kelechi Iheanacho’s weak effort after six minutes while Alex Tettey’s drive was blocked by Ben Chilwell at the other end. Krul, though, nearly handed the Foxes an early Christmas present 14 minutes in when he fumbled Youri Tielemans’s drive onto the post, before recovering ahead of Jamie Vardy. Two minutes later Nowich missed a golden chance for the opener. Emi Buendia and Sam Byram linked on the right and when Byram crossed for the unmarked Pukki the stretching striker could not turn in. Yet the Finland international had no problems netting his ninth of the season after 26 minutes. Norwich had continued to ask questions and opened up the Foxes again when Buendia slipped in Pukki to outpace Caglar Soyuncu and beat Kasper Schmeichel with a low finish. It was what the Canaries deserved after an excellent first-half display of patience and fearlessness. Yet the visitors undid a lot of their good work to allow Leicester level seven minutes before the break. They switched off and Vardy touched on James Maddison’s corner at the near post. His header was flashing across goal and Krul’s attempted save only turned the ball in to his own net. The goalkeeper was almost beaten again two minutes into the second half when Vardy latched onto Maddison’s pass, rounded Krul and rolled the ball onto the outside of the post from a tight angle. Leicester were yet to hit top gear and with Norwich defending well they struggled to find clear openings. The Canaries offered little going forward themselves and while Buendia bent a free kick over they focused on keeping the Foxes at bay. Wilfred Ndidi nodded wide after 67 minutes but Leicester lacked inspiration and ideas, even if Krul was forced into a smart low save by Vardy, whose own scoring streak of eight straight games ended. Soyuncu blocked Pukki’s effort in a rare Norwich opening as the game ticked into the final 10 minutes. Ricardo Pereira was then forced into brilliant recovering challenge when Pukki raced onto a bouncing ball with three minutes left. Ben Godfrey almost turned into his own net in stoppage time but Leicester were forced to settle for a draw.Tags: Kasper SchmeichelKelechi IheanachoSam ByramTeemu Pukkilast_img read more

Lambert calm after frustrating loss

first_imgAston Villa boss Paul Lambert claimed after his side’s 2-1 home defeat to Newcastle that the contest had been “a bad one to lose” – but he is not about to get carried away over how things are shaping up at this early stage of the season. As it turned out, a 73rd-minute strike from substitute Yoan Gouffran ensured Newcastle took all three, the forward reacting after Brad Guzan had parried a shot from the impressive Hatem Ben Arfa, whose close-range 18th-minute opener had been cancelled out by Christian Benteke’s 67th-minute headed equaliser. Following the final whistle, Lambert – whose side are currently 16th in the table, two points better off than bottom-placed Sunderland – said: “The start we have had has been hard, but this was a bad one to lose. “But if you look at all the results, there have been plenty of draws, and we are only four games into the season. “There is a long, long way to go.” In their past 40 home league games, stretching back to 2011-12, Villa have won only nine times and some of the club’s fans voiced their discontent from the stands with boos on Saturday. Asked about that, Lambert, who took charge of the midlands outfit in the summer of 2012, stressed he would never be critical of the supporters after the backing they have given him, and also emphasised that his players need to be galvanised rather than inhibited by playing at home. “I’m not one for excuses,” said the Scot, who confirmed Villa defender Jores Okore had sustained what looked like a knee injury during the Newcastle game. “You have to thrive on that crowd and playing in front of it – it is a great crowd to play in front of. The result means Villa have now lost three Barclays Premier League games in a row since beginning their top-flight campaign so impressively by winning 3-1 at Arsenal, with the other reverses coming at Chelsea and at home against Liverpool. Lambert has no doubt the four fixtures have made for a tough start and it seems he may well have regarded Saturday’s meeting with the Magpies at Villa Park as a particularly important opportunity to pick up points. “You have to be able to handle it.” While it is a frustrating time for Villa, suddenly things do not seem so bad for Newcastle. There has been plenty of talk about doom and gloom around the Tyneside club – who finished fifth in the Premier League in 2011-12 but 16th last term – after a summer in which the only new signing they made was Loic Remy, recruited on loan from QPR. Former Newcastle players such as Alan Shearer, Robert Lee and Andy Cole had spoken out in the build-up to the Villa match about what they regarded as the Magpies’ failings in the transfer market. And among the visiting fans at Villa Park, a banner was visible which mocked Newcastle director of football Joe Kinnear, who was appointed over the summer. But the win continued what has been a steady improvement for the team this season. Newcastle began their league campaign with a 4-0 loss at Manchester City, but have since drawn with West Ham and then beaten Fulham and now Villa. Afterwards, Pardew said he and his team had to accept the opinions of the club’s ex-pros as they had earned the right to express them, adding that the best response was to win games. He also singled out Ben Arfa for particular praise. The France midfielder’s goal was simple in comparison to his superb match-winning strike against Fulham last time out, but he was a constant thorn in Villa’s side. Pardew said: “Hatem got probably the simplest goal he is ever going to score. “But he got in the box, something we have encouraged him to do, and he got his reward for that. “In the first half I really felt we controlled the game – perhaps too well. “At half-time it was difficult to get the team ready for the second half because you know it can’t quite be the same. “We came under pressure for 20 minutes and had to weather a little bit of a storm in that period.” Newcastle eventually emerged with a victory they deserved overall at the end of a contest in which several of their players had made notable contributions. As well as Ben Arfa, that included striker Remy, making his first Newcastle start, and midfielder Yohan Cabaye, returning to the first XI after his proposed move to Arsenal failed to materialise. Pardew said: “Both of those (Cabaye and Remy) were not really at 100%, but I wanted to put them in because I felt just their names, if nothing else, would affect the opposition.” Press Associationlast_img read more
