Time and tides wait for no Isuzu

On Tuesday, the Nushagak River saw one its biggest tides of the year and swamped the truck. (Photo by Dave Bendinger/KDLG)The driver launched a skiff for Clark’s Point on Monday night and parked an Isuzu pickup truck and trailer on the beach.Parking far up the beach is often suitable for most tide changes. A vehicle’s tires may get wet on a 20-foot tide. But on Tuesday, the Nushagak River saw one its biggest — and one of its lowest — tides of the year, and this Isuzu’s swamped interior can now attest that parking up the road would have been the wiser course.Beachgoers Tuesday afternoon were shocked to see the outline of the truck appearing as the water receded on the afternoon ebb, and called police. The surf, fueled by 30 mph southwest winds, continued to pound the truck until police and harbor staff were finally able to tow it out around 2:15 p.m. Tuesday.(Photo by Dave Bendinger/KDLG)Initially, police suspected the vehicle might have been stolen and left on the beach after a joyride. It took just a few phone calls after the license plate became visible for the owner to clarify that wasn’t the case. The vehicle had been parked Monday night to launch a boat, was apparently swamped on the Tuesday morning high tide, and dragged perhaps 75 yards seaward with the ebb.According to NOAA’s Tides and Currents page, the Nushagak River’s high tide Monday night was 18.5 feet at 5:47 p.m. The low tide went down to negative 2.8 feet at 12:29 a.m., one of the lowest tides of the year. At 6:55 a.m., a monster 24.1-foot high tide smothered beaches and climbed shorelines, including several feet up Kanakanak Beach. That tide receded to 3 feet by 1:26 p.m. Tuesday, revealing the missing truck.The skiff trailer wasn’t immediately found.Share this story:last_img read more

Canadian dollar overvalued: Fidelity

Economy lost 68,000 jobs in May Share this article and your comments with peers on social media OECD raises outlook for Canadian economic growth this year Fiona Collie The Canadian dollar is likely to depreciate against the U.S. greenback in the coming years, according to Geoff Stein, portfolio manager with the Global Asset Allocation Group of Fidelity Investments. “[The Canadian dollar is] under a lot of pressure and appears overvalued to us,” says Stein who is based in Boston. “The U.S. dollar moving forward is a not only a safer but likely a more attractive currency to hold than the Canadian dollar in a lot of different scenarios that could play out.” Stagflation is U.S. economists’ biggest fear, SIFMA says Related news Keywords Dollar,  Economic forecastsCompanies Fidelity Investments Canada ULC One of those scenarios is a return to the volatility and risky global environment of 2011. Says Stein: “Probably in that scenario we would opt for the more defensive reserve currency, which is the U.S. dollar.” As well, the continued, if moderate, growth of the U.S. economy is another indicator that the American dollar is likely to appreciate in value against the loonie. The one scenario that would allow for a continued strong Canadian dollar, according to Stein, would be a return of the commodity “super-cycle. ” However, Stein believes the likelihood of that situation playing out is pretty low given the decline in demand for resources from countries such as China. Stein predicts that the Canadian dollar is currently about seven to eight per cent overvalued compared to the greenback and could drop to as low as 90 cents U.S. within the next couple of years. Of course, the chance of the dollar going straight to 90 cents is unlikely, says Stein. Instead, the more probably situation is a Canadian dollar that moves between 90 cents and a little above parity within that time frame. “I think that’s the range,” he says, “with probably a bias to the low range.” Facebook LinkedIn Twitter read more

Canadians unprepared to handle market volatility

first_img How have low-vol ETFs fared during the pandemic? More than four in 10 (42%) Canadians are unsure of whether they can withstand market volatility, which reinforces the need for investors to have long-term financial plans, according to a new study released by Mississauga, Ont.-based Edward Jones on Tuesday. “Markets, like the weather, can be unpredictable, but having a solid long-term financial strategy in place is the best tool to help steer through cloudy days,” says Patrick French, principal of client financial strategies at Edward Jones, in a statement. The most fearful Canadians are those between the ages of 35 and 54. Only 17% of them surveyed indicate they can handle market volatility. It can be daunting for individuals within this age group, especially if they have families, to think about how they will achieve their financial goals amid market volatility, the research states. Canadians who are 55 or older and preparing for retirement are slightly less nervous about potential market downturns, with 23% stating they’re prepared to handle such situations. Although none of the age groups feel overwhelmingly prepared, millennials are still the most confident in the face of market instability with 27% indicating they can handle that financial environment. “Younger professionals with no dependents and a longer workforce horizon may have a higher risk tolerance and not be as bothered by volatile markets,” the research states. “While goals at this life stage may be centred around saving for a first car or home or vacations, it’s still important to start saving early.” The report recommends that millennials should be encouraged to make a small investment each month that can also act as an emergency fund if needed. On a regional basis, Alberta (15%) and Atlantic Canada (14%) have the lowest number of individuals who feel they can handle market volatility. The most confident Canadians are those from Manitoba (35%) and Saskatchewan (30%) while those from British Columbia (20%) and Ontario (22%) find themselves in the middle of the pack.

ICA welcomes Federal Budget’s disaster mitigation funding

first_imgICA welcomes Federal Budget’s disaster mitigation funding The Insurance Council of Australia (ICA) tonight welcomed the 2021-22 Federal Budget as an historic Commonwealth commitment to funding resilience and mitigation measures to better protect vulnerable Australian communities against natural disasters.The ICA and insurers have been calling for increased investment in resilience and mitigation measures for more than a decade, and the Morrison Government has tonight provided an allocation of $1.2 billion over five years to improve Australia’s capability to prepare for, respond to, and recover from natural disasters.Insurers welcome investments in the future success of vulnerable communities, including $600 million for new disaster preparation and mitigation programs as part of the establishment of the new National Recovery and Resilience Agency (NRRA) and $40 million to make strata buildings in northern Australia more resilient to extreme weather events. To get maximum return from this investment the ICA calls on state and territory governments to match the Federal Government’s funding in their own jurisdictions.The natural disaster response package also includes $280 million over three years for projects in bushfire affected areas as part of the National Bushfire Recovery Fund, $210 million to establish the Australian Climate Service to help inform risk reduction and resilience investments, and $90 million for national disaster management funding.Along with the new NRRA funding, the Budget commitment to underwrite a $10 billion reinsurance scheme for cyclone and related flood for privately-owned homes, strata corporations and small businesses has been welcomed by insurers, who are committed to working with the Government on the design and implementation of the scheme.Comment attributable to Andrew Hall, CEO Insurance Council of Australia:Treasurer Josh Frydenberg’s third budget is good news for delivering a community more resilient to the risks of natural disasters.The Productivity Commission’s estimate that 97 per cent of all disaster funding in Australia is spent after an event, with just three per cent spent on mitigation measures ahead of a disaster, shows that the Federal Government’s commitments are an historic first step towards redressing that imbalance.The ICA in particular thanks Assistant Treasurer Michael Sukkar for the constructive way he has worked with insurers, particularly on short, medium and long term measures to improve affordability and availability of insurance.Insurers look forward to working with the Government and other stakeholders on the design and implementation of the cyclone reinsurance pool ahead of its implementation mid-2022. /Public Release.

Lawyer ad, fee sharing, firm ownership rules examined

first_img Bar advertising rules could be shortened and simplified — including ending the requirement that many ads be Bar reviewed before being aired or published — and rules that prohibit sharing fees with nonlawyers and partial nonlawyer ownership of law firms should also be looked at.The Special Committee to Improve the Delivery of Legal Services received reports from its subcommittees on those topics at its December 8 meeting.The full committee took no action on any of the reports. Chair and immediate Past Bar President John Stewart said the panel may begin refining its positions when it meets January 14 as part of the Bar’s virtual Winter Meeting. Its final report is due to the Supreme Court and the Bar Board of Governors in late June.Santo DiGangi, who chairs the subcommittee looking at advertising rules, said that panel has prepared a draft that cuts the length of advertising rules by more than 50%. The proposal also would end the requirement that lawyers submit ads that contain more than basic information to the Bar for review before they are disseminated and instead make filing voluntary.Josias Dewey, chair of the subcommittee examining the Bar rule on fee sharing and firm ownership, said that panel is looking at recommending that lawyers be allowed to share fees with nonlawyers, such as online companies that offer various legal services. It is also studying whether nonlawyers who actively work in a law firm could be part owners. No decisions have been made by the subcommittee or the full committee.The committee is charged with studying “whether and how the rules governing the practice of law in Florida may be revised to improve the delivery of legal services to Florida’s consumers and to assure Florida lawyers play a proper and prominent role in the provision of these services,” according to the Supreme Court order that created the committee last year.DiGangi said his subcommittee voted to reduce ad regulations, while keeping the principle that ads must not be misleading or deceptive. Prohibitions against using celebrities in lawyer ads would be removed, although ads would still have to give an office locale or say whether the lawyer is practicing online virtually.The proposal would drop the long-standing requirement that ads containing more than basic information must be reviewed by the Bar before they are used. The Bar now reviews more than 5,000 ads annually.“We did add a safe harbor provision that’s voluntary. If a law firm does submit its advertisement to the Bar and the Bar says the ad complies with the advertising rules, they would be immune from grievance prosecution,” DiGangi said.There aren’t many ad-related grievances now, he added. Last year, there were only 19 complaints and more than a third were dismissed without any investigation being started. In the past 10 years, there have been only 10 lawyers punished for ad rule violations. And virtually all the complaints come from other lawyers, not the public.Dewey’s subcommittee is looking at Bar Rule 4-5.4, which governs fee sharing and firm ownership.“Ultimately, the basis for the rule is a desire to protect the independent judgment of the lawyer,” Dewey said, adding that would remain in any suggested amendments.The subcommittee is looking at recommending lawyers be allowed to split fees with online “technology” companies that now in many cases offer forms and other legal services and have also offered to link consumers with lawyers for some kinds of work.“It offers consumers legal services and improved access to less expensive services and opens opportunities for lawyers to partner with technology companies,” Dewey said. “Absent the ability to share fees, it might leave lawyers in the position where we can’t compete with the services of technology companies.”As for nonlawyer ownership of firms, the subcommittee is looking at allowing that for someone who is actively supporting the firm, such as for data analysis or IT work, and limiting it to minority ownership, he said.“We could take the approach that the D.C. [District of Columbia] bar took where they do allow for nonlawyer ownership as long as the individual is actively supporting the practice of law within that firm,” Dewey said.Stewart said he expects the full committee will begin making decisions in January including “refining and fleshing out a structure on advertising rules and fleshing out and putting a structure on Rule 4-5.4.”The special committee is planning to include questions on those and related issues in a survey the Bar plans to conduct early next and Stewart said he expects the committee’s final recommendations may be controversial.He added questions about what data supports making changes, but he said the questions should be “what does the data suggest about the current system…. The data is really all the same. Frankly it is suggesting the system is not working for the average citizen….“We probably have the best system in the world and it’s still not working the way it should,” Stewart continued. “If there is no change, then change is going to be forced on us. We are doing this out of the knowledge there has to be improvement. I’d rather us be the architect of that change than have it forced upon us.”More information about the committee and its reports and information can be found on its webpage.
