The checks said, ‘Mable Goldstein for Purr Goldstein’ It was like signing a check when you don’t draw the money, it was Purr’s own money left to her by her own dead father Adam. He knew Mable was a lush and would drink everything away so the First Federal Bank sent her the interest on her money every month.
When large earthquakes are not felt for years, it is easy to lose track of the damage that ensues. We read articles and see photos of major earthquakes in Japan, Chile, and China, but there is nothing like the fright of feeling a strong tremor, particularly since there is no warning. In California, many buildings are retrofitted to withstand earthquakes, so generally, buildings do not collapse. But, while retrofitting protects the occupants, it does not mean that the buildings, equipment, and employees pull through unscathed.

Non-profit organizations are tasked with a very difficult job. How to allocate resources and money to best assist those in need? Since 2008, with a decline in charitable donations and an increase in program specific donations, that job has become even more difficult. Many non-profits have been left scrambling for unrestricted funds to run the day to day operations. For those that help so many, let me offer some solutions.
Most people view insurance as a type of “security blanket” that can protect them against financial burdens associated with property loss‚ accidents‚ or injuries. Those who commit insurance fraud undermine the positive aspects of insurance by taking advantage of opportunities to lie in an attempt to receive undeserved money from their policies.
How do they do it? Some provide false information on an insurance application form to secure a lower policy premium than had they been honest. Others exaggerate the amount of loss on a claim they submit in order to receive a settlement for more than the fair value. Or they “stage” accidents and attempt to get money for injuries that never occurred.
The fast-evolving trends of automobiles have the tendency of straining individuals to buy new car models. That is why almost every household nowadays has more than one car used alternately by the family members. Along with the pace, insurance companies also vie for the greatest number of loyal customers in the market. As a senior, you must have maintained over 50 car insurance coverage under the same company, which entitles you for a loyalty discount. Insurance renewal for old cars is very easy but what if you have a new car? Will you insure it under your current provider or buy a new policy? Like shopping for a long-term project, choosing a good insurance policy or deciding to stay entails wise thinking.

After an accident takes place at a workplace, we only can hope that employers will take the necessary action to prevent future injuries. However, as we see all too often, employers take a “well, that happened…let’s just hope that it doesn’t happen again” approach.
Too many items, employers fail to learn from their negligence.
