Citizens Property Insurance Corporation - Part two
Citizens Property Insurance Corporation Louisiana Citizens Property Insurance Corporation FAIR Plans and Coastal are the state bodies, and to run these entities the Louisiana Citizens Property Insurance Corporation is introduced. To help the house owners in Louisiana, the legislature decided to establish the Citizens Property Insurance Corporation. The merger of the Louisiana Insurance Underwriting Plan and the Louisiana Joint Reinsurance Plan formed the Louisiana Citizens Property Insurance Corporation. The Louisiana Joint Reinsurance Plan, which is also known as Beach Plan provided liable coverage of insurance to Zone 5 house owners. Zone 5 is an area of Louisiana State, which have higher risk of hurricane. However, the Louisiana Joint Reinsurance Plan or FAIR Plan offers insurance coverage to the rest part of the area of Louisiana State. Unlike these two plans, the Louisiana Citizens Property Insurance Corporation offer wide spectrum of insurance coverage. Also, it offers augmented insurance coverage for the homeowners of Louisiana. Citizens of statewide achieved a better insurance coverage because of the renewed policies of Louisiana Citizens Property Insurance Corporation. Also, it gave the new opportunity to the business at the Louisiana. The insurance policy of the Louisiana Citizens Property Insurance Corporation can cover the claim amount of $350,000. It includes the cost of damage of house, contents, liability and any additional structure. The Louisiana Citizens Property Insurance Corporation also has a Fire Dwelling Policy, and that can cover the claim of $225,000. Authorities of the Louisiana Citizens Property Insurance Corporation are permitted by the Louisiana State government to keep a part of the revenue, which is tax free. The Louisiana Citizens Property Insurance Corporation keeps these revenues to pay off for the claims, for the incident of any natural calamity, like floods. If the revenues are not adequate to cover the claims in the major disasters, then the Louisiana Citizens Property Insurance Corporation could issue bonds to fund the insurance claims.

So God Made A Fisherman
The Save Louisiana Coalition is a group of coastal residents, fisherman, restaurant owners, and other business owners and citizens that want to preserve Louisiana's coast along with its industry and heritage. We are in favor of all coastal restoration efforts especially dredging and land-building, but are adamantly against all large-scale diversions. Large-scale diversions will not only ruin our entire seafood industry, but we believe they will be detrimental to our marshes and actually erode the land they are intended to restore.

Risk, vulnerability, and resilience
In this lecture, Dr. Lori Peek discusses sociological theories of disaster and vulnerability. She highlights the variables that characterize vulnerability to the impacts of disasters, and notes that much research on vulnerable populations does not focus on the social systems and power relations that exacerbate risk. She then discusses the pressure and release model to characterize the temporal impacts of disasters. She uses the example of a project on the Gulf Coast that looks at the impacts of oil spills on youth health, and she explains the range of methodological approaches used to measure these impacts. Finally, she discusses how she and collaborators have built on vulnerability research to create curricula for high school students to engage in disaster recovery.

Flood Prevention and Awareness -Are You Ready for Flooding? -
City of Yokohama created inland flood maps, showing areas and depth assumed to be inundated when current sewerage and drainage systems are not sufficient in a torrential rain (76.5mm/hr). The maps also show citizens what to do in daily life to mitigate inundation and how to behave in torrential rains. The maps and already disclosed river flood maps were merged into flood hazard maps for convenience and were made public in 2014-2015. http://www.city.yokohama.lg.jp/kankyo/gesui/kokusaikouken/ International Technical Cooperation of Sewerage, Environmental Planning Bureau, City of Yokohama

Maps That Will CHANGE The Way You See The US!
Check out these maps that will change the way you see the us! This top 10 list of amazing and crazy maps of the united states is incredible!

The McDonalds Map As you know, maps can be used to illustrate many types of interesting data, but perhaps none as important as this one, which shows how far you are away from a McDonalds. Yes, that’s right, those Golden Arches aren’t too far away from you no matter where you are in the continental United States, and with more than 13,000 restaurants you are never more than 115 miles away from one. Can you guess where that might be??? 9. Fleas America is a nation of animal lovers, with more than 78 million dogs and 85.8 million cats being kept as pets, let alone the numerous other creatures that keep their human companions company. Along with our favourite friends, though, come unwanted companions, like fleas. They can transmit diseases to animals and humans, and can be an irritating presence in the home. They, like other insects, are more active during certain weather conditions, though, and this is where this next map comes in. 8. Murder and Manslaughter Murder and Manslaughter are, unfortunately, things that happen around the world, and the US is no different. You may be surprised to know the areas with the highest mortality rates due to these reasons, though, and, conversely, the places that are the safest. 7. Home Ownership Home ownership is one of the pillars of the American dream. Sure, not everyone aspires to buying their own house, but a lot of Americans do. This first map shows the areas where home ownership is highest and lowest, based on data from the last census. For the purposes of gathering the information, ownership is defined as where the person or people who own a property also live in it. The darker the colour blue, the higher the percentage. 6. Chlamydia Sexually transmitted diseases are a part of modern life but, despite the warnings and efforts at preventing their spread, an estimated 20 million Americans contract a new infection every year. At any one time, it’s thought that 110 million residents in the US has an STD, with Chlamydia being by far the most common. 5. Gun Ownership Gun ownership is a right protected by the Second Amendment, and you don’t need me to tell you the controversy over this right now. There’s no denying it, though, America is a nation of gun lovers- more so than any other country in the planet- but it’s not the case in every state. 30 % of American adults say they own a gun, and this map shows the percentage of people who live in each state that have at least one. While some numbers may seem obvious, others are quite surprising. 4. Most Remembered States It’s the dreaded test that every school child faces, to name as many of the states as they can. With 50 to choose from, there are a number of ways to remember them all, if you want you can look up the song!! How many can you remember off the top of your head?? 3. Poverty Across America, 12.4 % of residents are classified as living in poverty. While many more may experience financial hardship, this is a definition linked to disposable income and the ability to maintain what is seen as a reasonable standard of living. Living in poverty in the US, means households that live on less than $2 per day before government benefits. 2. Immigration America was built on immigration, and our nation is comprised of an amazing blend of people and cultures from around the world. With so much talk of the issue at the moment, it may surprise you where the majority of immigrants for each state come from. This map shows you in more detail. More than 500,000 immigrants move to the US each year, and they contribute to the country in countless ways. 1. Racial Dot Map This final map aims to show the geographic distribution, population density, and racial diversity of people in America based upon data collected in the most recent Census. The image is generated by placing one dot on the map for each person, each being colour coded by race. This not only shows where the highest population centres are, but also the cultural make-up of the people who live there.

Oil Spill Puts Fisheries, Birds at Risk Along US Gulf Coast
This is the VOA Special English Agriculture Report, from http://voaspecialenglish.com | http://facebook.com/voalearningenglish In May, American officials suspended all fishing in parts of the Gulf of Mexico because of the huge oil spill. The restrictions gave scientists time to study the effects on seafood in the gulf. The order extended from the mouth of the Mississippi River in Louisiana east to waters of Pensacola Bay in Florida. The affected waters include areas off the coasts of Mississippi and Alabama. On April twentieth an oil drilling rig, the Deepwater Horizon, exploded and sank about eighty kilometers from the Louisiana coast. BP is trying different ways to stop the leak from a damaged undersea well and control the spilled oil. The chief of British Petroleum blames failures by the rig's operator, Transocean of Switzerland. But BP says it will pay cleanup costs and all "legitimate claims" for losses and damages from the spill. BP is also hiring local fishing boats to help with the cleanup. Eighty percent of the seafood eaten by Americans is imported. But the fishing industry in Louisiana is responsible for about a third of all seafood caught in the United States. The fishing ban did not affect state waters west of the Mississippi River. Those waters represent seventy-seven percent of Louisiana's total seafood production. Ewell Smith from the Louisiana Seafood Promotion and Marketing Board says seafood from the unaffected area is safe to eat. Seafood is worth nearly two and a half billion dollars to the state. The spill happened shortly before the start of the fishing season for crab, shrimp and oysters. Louisiana is the nation's leading producer of shrimp, oysters, crabs, crawfish and alligators. Louisiana is also one of the world's largest producers of what some call "the most important fish you've never heard of": menhaden. Menhaden and its oil are used in animal feed and other products. Another important industry along the gulf is tourism. Coastal communities waited and watched for oil to arrive on their shores. Bad weather interfered with efforts to send out boats to clean up the oil and watch for the effects on wildlife in the Gulf of Mexico. Bird populations are among those at risk of being poisoned by the oil. Bird rescue groups set up stations. But they say finding injured birds in the huge spill and sending out boats to rescue them is a difficult job. And that's the VOA Special English Agriculture Report. You can find more reports about agriculture at voaspecialenglish.com. (Adapted from a radio program broadcast 04May10)

Siren - Official Trailer - Freeform - TV Serie 2018
Don't miss the series premiere of Siren - coming 2018 to Freeform. About SIREN: “Siren” takes us inside Bristol Cove—a coastal town known for its legend of once being home to mermaids. When the arrival of a mysterious girl proves this folklore all too true, the battle between man and sea takes a very vicious turn as these predatory beings return to reclaim their right to the ocean.

9 Unsolved Sin & Mysteries from the American Old West
9 Unsolved Sin & Mysteries from the American Old West (A ship isn’t usually something you associate with the Wild West). 👉 Thank for watching! If You enjoy it, please Like and Subcribe this Chanel. 👈 The American West has long been a place for cowboys, gunslingers, and hidden treasure. However, there’s been questions about the true fate of certain outlaws, along with other mysteries that have fascinated people for around a hundred years, and that have never been solved or explained by modern historians. 1. Butch Cassidy’s Death. Born Robert LeRoy Parker in Beaver, Utah, on April 13, 1866, the bandit who assumed the alias Butch Cassidy remains an icon, of the Old West even 150 years after his birth. As with many legendary outlaws... 2. Victorio Peak Treasure. The mystery boils down to a single question: Was Milton (Doc) Noss telling the truth, or just a tall tale?... 3. Bill Longley’s Execution. Outlaw Wild Bill Longley twice cheated the noose, but popular Texas folklore that he got away a third time is wrong. Scientists say tests of the body in his grave show that it is, indeed, Longley.... 4. Cochise’s Burial Site. Chief Cochise, one of the great leaders of the Apache Indians, in their battles with the Anglo Americans, dies on the Chiricahua reservation in southeastern Arizona.... 5. Lost Dutchman’s Gold Mine. One legendary treasure that has led many astray, and ruined many lives is the Lost Dutchman Mine, supposedly located in the Superstition Mountains east of Phoenix, Arizona. As with most legends... 6. Pancho Villa’s Head. Mexican revolutionary Pancho Villa was born Doroteo Arango on June 5, 1878, in San Juan del Rio, Durango. Villa spent much of his youth helping out on his parents' farm.... 7. Thunderbirds. One of the West’s most fascinating cold cases involves a flying monster, a dying town and a disappearing photograph.... 8. Billy the Kid’s Death. Sheriff Pat Garrett shoots Henry McCarty, popularly known as Billy the Kid, to death at the Maxwell Ranch in New Mexico.... 9. The Desert Ship. Of all the legends about lost and found, and lost again treasures in the Southwest, there is none more mystifying than the enduring tale of a large sailing vessel which lies...

NASA Tech Safeguards CA Water (live public talk)
Original air date: Oct. 19 at 7 p.m. PT (10 p.m. ET, 0200 UTC) California is is prone to both droughts and flood. There is a great disparity between where and when precipitation falls, where people live, and where crops are grown. To deal with these issues, the state has a vast array of infrastructure in place to store, channel and convey water, much of which also serves to protect against floods. Monitoring and maintaining the infrastructure that carries water where it is needed it is both critical and an enormous undertaking, involving local, state, and federal resources. Most of the monitoring is done through visual inspection from vehicles or on foot, a formidable task that affords neither frequent nor comprehensive measurements. Researchers at JPL are working to change that, using techniques developed for Earth science to measure Earth surface deformation using airborne radar. This game-changing technology has been applied to detect subsidence (sinking) of sections of the California Aqueduct during the recent drought and to identify levees that are subsiding in the Sacramento delta. In this lecture, Jones describes how NASA uses a high-resolution, airborne radar to identify these hazards before they can become disasters. Speaker: Dr. Cathleen E. Jones - Signals Analysis Engineer, JPL

“Planting in the Public Realm: Projects and Projections”
Plant life, long regarded in cities as an amenity, has throughout the twentieth and twenty-first centuries also become an accepted necessity integral to the urban fabric. Yet, there are multiple challenges facing plants and planting design in urban areas. Pollution, climate change, increasingly restricted space, and insufficient or nonexistent public budgets for plants are only some of the factors that make it difficult for vegetation in our cities to survive. Yet numerous new public urban parks have been created, tree planting programs persist, new plant cultivars are developed, spontaneous plant growth is studied, and new planting design paradigms are proposed. In a series of short presentations and a moderated discussion, landscape architects, planting designers, and ecologists will assess the current state of the art in planting the public realm. The event seeks to draw out ideas for how plants can be used in the future design of urbanizing areas to create healthy, sustainable, inclusive, and appealing environments. What is the importance of planting the public realm today, and what are its biggest challenges? What are the roles of landscape architects, designers, ecologists, and plant scientists in accommodating plant life in cities and in areas that are becoming urbanized, and are we beyond botanical xenophobia? Moderated by Sonja Dümpelmann, associate professor of landscape architecture, with Steven Handel, visiting professor in landscape architecture; Noel Kingsbury, writer and garden designer; Norbert Kühn, TU Berlin; Doug Reed MLA ’81, lecturer in landscape; and Matthew Urbanski MLA ’89, associate professor in practice of landscape architecture.

Gulf Tides 11: Deepwater Deliberations - BP Drilling Disaster - Mar. 2, 2011
Ongoing series by the Gulf Restoration Network documenting the environmental and community impacts of the BP disaster. Take action to support the Gulf now at http://bpdrillingdisaster.org Despite the research and recommendations of the National Commission on the BP Deepwater Horizon Oil Spill, Congress has failed to enact legislation to respond to the BP drilling disaster. In this episode we examine two key recommendations of the Oil Spill Commission, the creation of a regional citizens advisory committee for more transparency and accountability in spill response planning and the use of 80% of the eventual Clean Water Act fines for Gulf ecosystem restoration. As the Department of the Interior begins to issue deepwater drilling permits, it's far past time for leadership from Washington, and action on the Oil Spill Commission's recommendations. Featuring interviews with Clint Guidry (LA Shrimp Association) and coastal restoration expert Dr. Denise Reed (UNO). We also include musical testimony in front of the Oil Spill Commission from crawfisherman and musician Drew Landry. Featuring music from Big Rock Candy Mountain, Sun Hotel, & Vox and the Hound. Narrated by Brian Denzer & Tim Robbins. Written and directed by Aaron Viles, Edited by Gino Kalkanoglu (NOLA Image Works), Produced by Jared Serigné.
