Donegal TD slams insurance bosses over issue of fraudulent claims

first_imgInsurance industry bosses have been slammed for suggesting that fraudulent claims are the reason insurance premiums are so high.Pearse Doherty called out insurance firms for not reporting suspected bogus claims to gardai – despite one firm believing 20% are fraudulent.The Donegal TD was speaking at an Oireachtas committee meeting alongside CEO of AXA Phillip Bradley, Allianz chief Sean McGrath, and FBD Ireland’s Jackie McMahon and Fiona Muldoon. A video has gone viral showing party’s finance spokesperson laying into the industry bosses.In it, Doherty said: “I’m not suggesting there is no issue with fraudulent claims.“What I’m suggesting is that the insurance industry is completely exaggerating the issue of fraudulent claims in a way to try and justify the type of premiums they are charging, and the increases we are seeing in certain sectors.“It is not for the insurance industry to prove whether claims are fraudulent. It is for the industry to report a suspected crime to the gardai. “We have listened for quite a while in relation to this issue and I know there are issues in terms of fraudulent and exaggerated claims, but not at the scale that the industry is suggesting – and the last 10 minutes have just proven that.”Sinn Féin Finance spokesperson @PearseDoherty has called out the insurance industry for magnifying the scale of the issue of fraudulent claims in order to justify their high premiums and increases. pic.twitter.com/jaR5kH2dFr— Sinn Féin (@sinnfeinireland) July 5, 2019Donegal TD slams insurance bosses over issue of fraudulent claims was last modified: July 8th, 2019 by Staff WriterShare this:Click to share on Facebook (Opens in new window)Click to share on Twitter (Opens in new window)Click to share on LinkedIn (Opens in new window)Click to share on Reddit (Opens in new window)Click to share on Pocket (Opens in new window)Click to share on Telegram (Opens in new window)Click to share on WhatsApp (Opens in new window)Click to share on Skype (Opens in new window)Click to print (Opens in new window)last_img read more

Hoopa Valley native Junior Davis shines in final start, Crabs top Seals to sweep series

first_imgArcata >> Junior Davis’ final start in a Humboldt Crabs jersey didn’t start off on the right foot. His control was off kilter and he was trailing 1-0 after all of two batters into the game. It wasn’t what he — or the large contingent from the Hoopa Valley sitting behind home plate — were hoping for. But when it clicked, it was the kind of showing that so many at the Arcata Ball Park had been accustomed over the last two summers.Davis recovered from his rocky start to go seven strong innings …last_img

Manuel to tackle African infrastructure

first_img26 October 2010 South African Minister in the Presidency Trevor Manuel is to help President Jacob Zuma with his work on a New Partnership for African Development (Nepad) sub-committee responsible for mobilising resources for infrastructure development on the continent.The Presidency said in a statement on Monday that Manuel – who is responsible for South Africa’s National Planning Commission – would help Zuma in his role as the African Union champion of the north-south infrastructure development corridor on the continent.“We have the enormous task of promoting tangible action, and have to mobilise resources for the development of infrastructure on the continent,” Zuma said in the statement.“Minister Manuel and I will work closely together to ensure that South Africa fulfils its continental responsibilities on infrastructure … We trust that we will be able to mobilise the private sector to work with us on this massive but very important project.”Zuma is the “political champion” of road and rail links between the north and south of the continent as a member of Nepad’s high level sub-committee on infrastructure.The sub-committee includes heads of state from South Africa, Algeria, Benin, Egypt, Republic of Congo, Nigeria, Rwanda and Senegal.A ministerial group on infrastructure is being established to support the designated heads of state. Manuel has been tasked with this role for South Africa in line with his national planning responsibilities.The Presidency said the ministerial group was set to work on the “concept document” of prioritised projects generated by a task team and other “expert institutions”.The group will also monitor the implementation of projects on behalf of the heads of state.The announcement followed weekend reports that Zuma was set to make several “possible key changes” to his Cabinet, which was holding a special meeting on Monday on a new economic growth strategy.One possible change was the departure of Manuel to take up a senior position either at the World Bank or in Nepad, reports said.Sapalast_img read more

The Opposite of What is Easy is Easy

first_imgThings that are perceived as difficult make outcome attainment easier and more certain. Things that seem easy make outcomes less likely.The idea of inbound lead generation is attractive in large part because it is perceived as being easier than more traditional prospecting methodologies. What could be easier than waiting for someone else to generate opportunities for you? But the traditional methods of prospecting, while more difficult, makes opportunity creation faster and more certain.Telling your people what to do, how to do it, and when to do it is easier than investing the time and emotional energy to help them grow. It’s faster for you, giving you back time to look at the dashboard and your CRM. If you want your people to be accountable and take initiative, then the more difficult work of investing time with your team is the easiest way to accomplish these higher value outcomes.It’s easy for leaders to see these mistakes, pointing out the areas where their team is looking for an easier way to generate an outcome instead of doing what is necessary. But leaders are not immune from this mistake. In fact, the very nature of leadership makes it easy to trade lower value task for more meaningful work. When you have to determine how to deal with systemic threats and opportunities that require significant change, easier decisions, the kind that do not require the same cognitive load and internal conflicts, are a safe place to hide. The hard decisions are the real work of leaders.Any attempt to avoid the difficult work makes the outcomes more difficult to obtain, and attempts at making outcomes easier only pushes those outcomes further away from you—and further out of your reach.

Lando Norris signs new McLaren contract after superb start to F1 career

first_img Lando Norris: ‘A lot of swearing goes on generally when I am driving’ Norris, who is still only 19, was first signed by McLaren as a junior driver in 2017. He tested their car that year and while competing in F2 last season was the team’s reserve driver. His performances on promotion to a full race seat have proved his credentials as a potential future starof the sport .“It’s good to see McLaren have faith in me and back up what they’ve said in that I have been doing a good job so far,” he said. “I wasn’t pushing for it. I wasn’t saying I want the deal done by Silverstone. It was out of the blue last week. It doesn’t change too much because I wasn’t thinking about it, or worried about it, but it gives me a bit more confidence.”Norris has out-qualified his more experienced teammate Sainz six to three so far this season and has shown maturity, tenacity and finesse. He has remained optimistic in the face of two mechanical failures, reacted well to playing the team game in Monaco and did not seem at all intimidated by going wheel to wheel with the world champions Lewis Hamilton and Kimi Raïkkönen. He has scored two sixth-place finishes – in Bahrain and at the last round in Austria.McLaren’s chief executive, Zak Brown, wanted to ensure there would be stability in the team’s lineup. “Lando is in a good place, so as he gets more successful, and we get more successful, we all win together,” he said. “Given how well Lando and Carlos are doing, it was in our best interest that as silly season ramps up, we have our head down, we know what we’re doing next year, and this announcement is to end speculation or potential activity.”McLaren are in the process of rebuilding after a period of underperformance and are beginning to display some of the form that has returned eight constructors’ and 12 drivers’ championships. They are fourth in the championship, the best of the midfield teams and 20 points in front of fifth-placed Renault. news Share on Twitter … we have a small favour to ask.
