Surfing the Web pt.3
After scrolling through the options I narrowed my choices down to types of insurance that would be relevant to my professional future. The first site that I chose to research was “http://smallbusiness.findlaw.com/liability-and-insurance/businessliability.html”. This website deals with Business Liability, and within that are a plethora of areas so i’ll keep it simple and cover four. They are An Employer’s Liability for
Employee’s Acts, Tortious Interference, Driving on Company Time, and Protecting
Customer Data.

An Employer’s Liability for Employer’s Acts- This category stood out to me because working in the food industry you will always find a big laminated poster of all of the employee’s rights and acts. In-fact I believe it is required by law that all businesses display an updated version. One of the most interesting facts that I read was that the
Employer rather than the employee is responsible for the employees actions in the event there is an incident. Why you ask? Well there are two reasons why. First, plain and simple, “employer are seen as directing the behavior of their employees and accordingly, must share in the good as well as the bad.” This may sound brash but on the other hand, the employer reaps the rewards of an employees labor in the form of profit . The second reason is that when a workplace injury or incident occurs, the legal system wants to get as much compensation for the victim in the most effective way, and

that is to go after the employer. Employers are more likely to have insurance coverage at their disposal for these types of incidents. Employer’s are also responsible if they negligently hire a criminal who causes harm to another employee or the business itself.
This is called Negligent hiring or Retention. This act states that…...

...INCREASING INSURANCE PENETRATION IN INDIA Insurance penetration is the ratio of the percentage of total insurance premiums to gross domestic product. It tells us the level to which a market is being tapped. Thus insurance penetration is a tool to understand and identify the reasons of the success or failure and the degree of presence of insurance in the economy of a country. Indian insurance is a flourishing industry, with several national and international players competing and growing at rapid rates. Thanks to reforms and the easing of policy regulations, the Indian insurance sector been allowed to flourish, with a period 2010-2015 projected to be the ‘Golden Age’ for the Indian insurance industry.

India is the fifth largest life insurance market in the emerging insurance economies globally and is growing at 32-34% annually.

Define a Lan-to-Wan, Internet, and Web Surfing Aup That Restricts Usage of the Company’s Internet Connection and Permits the Company to Monitor Usage of the Corporate Internet Connection.

...Acceptable Use Policy CSS150-1301B-01 Luz Centeno March 4, 2013 Prof. Cordero Acceptable Use Policy To fully explain the acceptable use policy would mean to begin from the beginning, the user domain. The user domain is the employee or people within an organization who is granted access to the information system for the organization. There are roles and tasks, responsibility, and accountability that go into an acceptable use policy for the user domain. Within the user domain is the access of LAN to Wan, web surfing, and internet. LAN to Wan is the activities between LAN to Wan and firewalls, routers, intrusion, detection, and workstations. Web surfing determines what a user can do on company time with company resources. Internet is when the user has access to the internet what types of controls should the organization have on the certain internet sites being accessed. Although they all sort of are the same they are very much different (Cordero, 2013). For the Lan to Wan AUP will go hand in hand with the roles and tasks parts of the user domain. Users would be given access to certain systems, applications, and data depending on their access rights. The AUP is like a rulebook that employees need to follow when using an organization’s IT assets and if they are violated it could be grounds for termination. The AUP will set grounds on employees to understand that they are responsible for any and all actions on an organization’s IT assets. In particular to organizations...

Commerical Insurance

...Commercial Insurance – United Healthcare PPO ------------------------------------------------- BUA 211 – Spring 2013 Denise Wehr Commercial Insurance – United Healthcare PPO ------------------------------------------------- BUA 211 – Spring 2013 Denise Wehr The topic I chose to research was commercial insurance, more specifically United HealthCare, which is associated with a preferred provider organization (PPO). A PPO is a health care organization of providers, hospitals, and diagnostic and lab facilities that are contracted together and provide health care services at a reduced cost. PPOs provide significant benefits to the providers who join them. PPOs provide more freedom for the insured to see whom they want to see and not be tied down to a specific group. In most instances, the insured has to pick from the providers that are in that PPO organization. But, there are times there is an out-of-network benefit that allows the insured to see a particular provider who is not within that PPO. The insured does need to select a primary care provider (PCP), so as a result the PCPs are not needed as gatekeepers for patients to see specific specialty providers. No referrals are needed. However, some specialists only will see patients who are referred to them by the PCP. One such PPO plan is United Healthcare. This insurance is a segment of bigger group named UnitedHealth Group (UHG). Richard T Burke created the UnitedHealth Group in 1974 and headquartered in Minnetonka...

...My last visit appointment at the dentist’s office was on May 23rd. First the dentist’s office has to work with my insurance company so that I can use their services as in the “network”. I called the insurance company and I was told some dentist’s offices that are in the network. I went to the closest one. As all the businesses do, they had a systematic set of steps that employees perform to serve a customer. I went through the following steps: I called to make an appointment, somebody answered the phone and looked through the schedules and told me when the doctor was available. I made an appointment. The receptionist called a day before the appointment to confirm my presence. I went at that dentist’s office for the first time so I had to write down all my information, which I suppose they introduced in the computer database. The first thing they asked was the insurance card I had and they made a copy of it. They asked me to provide my credit card number and explained that it is just in case you do not pay. I argued with them because I did not want to give this information. They understood my reasons and did not insist on that. I was told to wait until the doctor finishes with the other patient. In the meanwhile the receptionist prepared a file with my name on it. A nurse called my name. She introduced me to the doctor and then showed me the room where I had to wait for the doctor. The room had the special chair with different modern technologies and a set of......

Car Surfing

...Car surfing just for idiots. By ******* For the British newspaper… Hello. I want to write something to your article in the paper yesterday. Here’s my opinion for car surfing: I don’t have any idea, for what’s going on in their head. I think it’s sick, and I don’t understand why young people want to do that. Car surfing is dangerous, and I think that YouTube has an effect on the young people. When they see these videos on the internet, they think they can do it too. They don’t think about the consequences, before some of their friends, who do it, die or getting hurt. I don’t think that we can blame YouTube for car surfing, and other stuff, but when young people see it, they want to do it. That’s it. If there were videos where people get serious hurt, they may will stop doing it. Young people must had it cut out of cardboard! Young people today do a lot off foolish things, but I think it’s a part of being young. Their behaviour is not all ways the best. They often drink to really much, and walk around in a fog. They do things like stealing food, cars and other things. They’ll fight, and they’ll beat up people they haven’t met before, and they just think it’s funny. There’s a lot of things young people do, there is really stupid. As I mention before, they steal. Stealing is a big thing, like car surfing is. They may do because they think they’re cool or something like that. They’re taking drugs, beside they are drinking, and driving, and May there’s sitting someone on the...

...INTRODUCTION: This report has been prepared as a requirement of the insurance and risk management course. The report was based upon the overall insurance company’s problems and prospects in Bangladesh. . It can be defined as a co-operative device to spread the loss caused by a particular risk over a number of persons who are exposed to it and who agree to ensure themselves against that risk. It is a contract whereby the insurers, on receipt of a consideration known as premium, agree to indemnify the insured against losses arising out of certain specified unforeseen contingencies or perils insured against. It can play an important role in a country’s economy. It is an old form of financial practice of sharing risk, which was introduced in this area in mid-18 the Century. DEFINITION OF INSURANCE: In legal terms, insurance is a contract of uberrima fideism, i.e. a contract of utmost god faith. Here both the parties namely insurer (insurance company) and insured (policy holder) must be honest and disclose all material facts about the insurable interest. Here the insurance company undertakes to indemnify the insured against any loss in lieu of a small charge known as premium. Such as insurance policies except life insurance allows a policy-holder to transfer all risk to the insurance company in exchange of paying a certain amount of premium.

...Executive summary The life insurance industry in India is achieving a growth rate of about 4% annually. It is considered to be one of the fastest growing sectors. The changing socioeconomic demographics and consumer behavior along with increased frequency of natural calamities and disasters have been the main reasons for the growth of this Industry. Its assets as on 31.03.08 were valued at $185 billion with a total of 250 million policies sold and an employee turnover of 113000 and about 1.2 million agents. There are currently 22 life insurance companies with LIC being the only public company having a market share of almost 50%. ICICI comes in second with 10% followed by HDFC at 6%, SBI at 5%, Bajaj at 4%, Reliance at 4%, Birla at 4%, Max 3%, Tata 3%, Kotak 2%, Met 1% and the rest taking up 10% of the market share.

...Insurance market is a vitally important economic institution where mutually beneficial exchange between consumers - insurance takers and vendors - insurance companies is carried out. Consumers purchase the promise of the insurer to cover the financial consequences of a possible loss, paying the insurance premium for this service. The insurers take the liability to cover the losses in case of a probable harmful event and issue a special document testifying the power of the contract - the insurance policy. Information is crucial for market exchange to occur - consumers have to possess the information about supply and prices, vendors - about demand and paying ability of their clients. Modern economic theory attributes to the market an important innovative function too - the market encourages vendors to create new products and bring them to the market in response to the emerging demand for them. Security for the future strongly influences the welfare of people by making better the personal well-being and by allowing for more risk taking activities unfolding the entrepreneurial spirit in an environment where insurance against harmful loss is available. Role of Information Technology in Insurance Sector The insurance industry has a particular dependence on information technology. Insurance was one of the first industries to apply computers transaction processing -- to handle the vast number of claims, reserve estimates, payments, codes, etc. required.

Origin of Surfing

...Origin of Surfing Imagine yourself sitting under the radiant sun overlooking the ocean’s surface as it forms friction pushing up against the blue waters forming such beautiful ocean swells. That is the beauty of a wave and the art of surfing begins. What is surfing? According to the Wikipedia website, by definition, is a surface water sport in which a person (surfer) encounters breaking waves on a surfboard. It is a well-known leisure cultural sport to the Hawaiian Islands. Many of the Locals do not believe surfing as just a sport but an outlet for a connection with the ocean and the adrenaline rush between the surfer with the waves and the board. I believe that the origin of surfing began in the Hawaiian Islands but the written history of surfing says otherwise. Before looking up how surfing originated, based on how everything evolved and migrated to Hawaii, I assumed that many of the activities we find in Hawaii are actually not authentic but found to be part of Hawaii’s lifestyle as we see today. I believe that many of the cultural things that are practiced in the Islands migrated from somewhere else and introduced to the Locals. Although it was introduced to the Locals, I think that because it was improved and specialized as the surfing we know today, I give credit to the Hawaiian Islands for the modern surfing people learn everyday. Just as the ukulele, which I thought originated from Hawaii was actually introduced to the Hawaiian Islands by Portuguese......
