continue reading » As times change due to lending trends, technology growth, and the state of the economy, lenders need to be more creative when it comes to building a risk strategy that keeps both them and their borrowers protected. Insurance tracking is one data component that plays an important role in developing that comprehensive plan. Today, we’re breaking down four reasons to consider investing in an insurance tracking program as part of a larger risk strategy.But first, what is insurance tracking? Insurance tracking allows lenders to monitor borrowers’ insurance data to ensure their collateral remains protected by understanding the insurance status (or any deficiencies) of a borrower’s policy. An effective tracking system includes gathering information, maintaining and updating information, and interacting with borrowers if necessary.Many lenders are turning to data to determine the best risk strategy approach for their organization. Lenders want a complete set of data that gives insight on how to protect their portfolio, and active tracking provides an important piece of that picture. Successful programs help lenders stay protected from both expected—and unexpected— risks. ShareShareSharePrintMailGooglePinterestDiggRedditStumbleuponDeliciousBufferTumblr

9 December 2013 Peace, forgiveness, caring, justice and equality for all – South Africans should hold on to the values that Nelson Mandela lived by, President Jacob Zuma told the congregation at the Bryanston Methodist Church in Johannesburg on Sunday as the country held a day of national reflection and prayer for Madiba. The 95-year-old former statesman passed away on Thursday, 5 December at his home in Houghton, Johannesburg after a lengthy battle with a lung infection. “We should not forget the values that Madiba stood for and sacrificed his life for,” Zuma said. “He stood for freedom, he fought against those who oppressed others … He actively participated to remove the oppressor to liberate the people of this country. When our struggle came to an end, he preached and practised reconciliation to make those who had been fighting to forgive one another and become one nation.” Mandela’s ex-wife Winnie Madikizela-Mandela and grandson Mandla Mandela, and African National Congress (ANC) treasurer-general Zweli Mkhize, were among those present at the Bryanston church service. Mkhize told SAnews after the service that it was important for South Africans to “re-live the values of our late former president – those are unity, reconciliation and compassion – so that we create a better South Africa. We’ve got a beacon in Nelson Mandela to take our country forward.” Deputy President Kgalema Motlanthe, addressing a capacity congregation at the Grace Bible Church in Soweto, said Mandela “personified unity and diversity even while in prison. Through all that he endured, he learned not to hate. Instead he chose to see goodness in every person.” Motlanthe quoted Mandela, who said of himself that he “was not a saint, but a sinner who keeps trying”. Young and old filled the seats at the Grace Bible Church while others watched the service from monitors outside the church hall. Church member Margaret Lukhele, who came with her family of eight for the service, said they would “forever remain proudly South Africans because of Tata. He walked the long road back to freedom, made every South African to be free and to live free.” Also on Sunday, South Africans from various faiths gathered together under a white marquee to reflect on Mandela’s legacy at the Nelson Mandela Centre of Memory in Johannesburg. Former Cabinet minister Tokyo Sexwale said South Africans grieved together “while understanding that 95 years of life were well lived and should be celebrated. It is a life worthy of celebration.” Mandela’s great-grandson, Luvuyo Mandela, thanked the public for the support the family had received, adding: “What happens next is that we pick up from where he left off.” Chief Rabbi Warren Goldstein said: “The greatest tribute we can make to Madiba is to live like him. He showed us tolerance and generosity of spirit.” Anti-apartheid struggle stalwart Ahmed Kathrada recounted a story Madiba had once told him, of a conversation he’d had with a little girl who had called him a “stupid old man”. Kathrada said he would remember Mandela “as a politician who could laugh at himself”. Source: SAnews.gov.za
Share Facebook Twitter Google + LinkedIn Pinterest A big change in our weather pattern kicks off today. Rain spreads over the state and will lead to rain totals of .25″-.75″ over 100% of Ohio. Cold air waits to blast in until this evening, and closer to midnight any remaining moisture in central and northern Ohio has the potential to end as sloppy wet snowflakes. That being said, we think the threat of snow with this system overnight is minimal, as most of the moisture is gone before cold air arrives. The areas that have the biggest potential for a few flakes will be in east central and NE Ohio.Conditions turn windy and much colder for Tuesday. Temps will be significantly lower than today, and we go to well below normal levels. Winds make the change more dramatic today, but as winds subside tomorrow and Thursday, we still see even colder air coming for those days. The threat of below zero temps looks like it is off the table now, but still, lower single digit lows are likely, especially overnight Wednesday night into Thursday morning. We see no new precipitation those days except for some lake effect snow potential on Wednesday in far NE Ohio, and perhaps a bit sagging back into north central Ohio near the lake shore. The rest of the state is dry.On Friday, we start to see some temperature moderation, and with that a few more clouds. However, we are going to keep the forecast dry at this time, and likely see similar conditions for Saturday, although there is a slightly better chance of rain over the eastern third of the state Saturday midday and afternoon. If rain does fall, we are talking a few tenths or less. Clouds mix with sun on Sunday, but there is not any serious threat of organization on any moisture.Our next frontal passage comes overnight Sunday night through Monday of next week. This has some warm air leading the front, but most of the precipitation looks like it wants to come in the cold sector. Right now, we will allow for both rain and snow potential, but would skew central and northern Ohio more toward snow, with far southern Ohio rain. Liquid equivalent precipitation totals will be from .1″-.5″ with coverage at 80%. Dry and colder for Tuesday, Wednesday and Thursday of next week. The map at right shows our estimate for liquid equivalent moisture totals for the next 10 days combined. Some models are wetter than this, and some are drier. The biggest chunk of this happens in the next 24 hours.
While the Congress focuses on issues related to farmers and the economy, the Bharatiya Janata Party (BJP) is set to highlight the abrogation of Article 370 in Jammu & Kashmir on the campaign trail for Assembly polls.With BJP national president Amit Shah set to kick off the Rashtriya Ekta Abhiyan from Mumbai on Sunday, the party has planned a rally in each constituency, focusing on Article 370. A number of senior BJP leaders, including executive president J.P. Nadda, Ram Madhav, Lok Sabha MP and former Mumbai police commissioner Satyapal Singh, and spokespersons Sambit Patra and Gaurav Bhatia, will address rallies at different district headquarters. Mr. Nadda will be in Pune on September 23, while Ram Madhav will be in Aurangabad on September 29. Mr. Singh will address a rally in Satara in front of retired Army officers and families of soldiers who died on duty. The leaders will meet eminent personalities to inform them about the abrogation of Article 370 and its importance. State BJP secretary Rajesh Pande, who is coordinating the Abhiyan in the State, said the party will approach around 4,000 prominent personalities with its message. “Senior leaders will address public meetings at the district level, but similar rallies will be organised in each constituency. The Abhiyan will continue till the first week of October,” he said. Congress strategyThe Congress, meanwhile, is focusing on the economy and farmers’ problems. “The BJP-Shiv Sena government’s claim of having given the country’s biggest loan waiver of ₹34,000 crore to 89 lakh farmers has proved to be false. More than 50% farmers are yet to benefit from the scheme,” Congress spokesperson Sachin Sawant said. He said that as on August 31, the government had waived loans worth ₹18,761 crore of 44, 04,147 farmers, keeping nearly 45 lakh farmers waiting.Addressing a press conference in Mumbai, Congress spokesperson Gaurav Vallabh said bank loans to industries in Maharashtra declined for the first time in 30 years in 2018. “The government should declare how much foreign investment came into the State through the Make in Maharashtra initiative and publish online district-wise data on how many new businesses are being set up,” he said.
