Although Dunedin began as a strictly Scottish settlement hence the building of the First Church – a Presbyterian Church – it still remains a Scottish influenced city. The town street plan mimics the romantic layout of Edinburgh after which it was named. The city streetscapes have many solid stone buildings reminiscent of Edinburgh itself. In the 1850s over 12,000 Scots landed in Dunedin. But the gold rushes of 1861 near Dunedin and further inland in Otago diluted the Scottish influence but did not diminish the power of the Scots in the city. The diggers from England, Australia, Italy, France and Jewish communities of Europe flocked to the city. By the mid-1860s the city had Anglican, Methodist (1869), Congregational (1864), Baptist (1863) and other churches. It even had a synagogue, the first built in NZ in 1864. By 1865 Dunedin was the largest city in NZ. New suburbs with Scottish names were developed- St Kilda, Leith Valley, Kenmure, Shiel Hill, MacAndrew Bay etc. Its links with Scotland were difficult as Dunedin is the world’s furthest city from London and Edinburgh, even further than Invercargill. The early political leader of the city was Captain William Cargill who was the Superintendent of Otago Province and a member of parliament for Dunedin. He died in 1860 as the city’s Scottish influence was waning. Mount Cargill overlooks the city, there is a Cargill road intersection near his old house and there is also a fine stone memorial to William Cargill in Princes...
Health and Money: Disability Insurance

Health and Money: Disability Insurance

by CA Dept of Insurance Health and Money: Disability Insurance I asked Kristi (a 32 year old woman who suffers from an extremely rare, serious and disabling neuromuscular disease called Stiff-Person Syndrome (SPS), as well as Myasthenia Gravis and Gastroparesis) while I had her on the phone, “If she knew then, what she knows now, what would she do differently?” One of the first things she said was to make sure everyone had disability insurance. No one wants to think about being disabled, however, the reality is one third of all American’s between the ages of 35 and 65 will become disabled for more than 90 days, according to the American Council of Life Insurers. What’s worse is that one in seven workers will be disabled for more than five years. This is not normally caused by a freak accident, most of the time it is caused by illness. Disability insurance replaces a portion of your income if you become disabled and are not able to work. Check with your employer, they usually offer a group plan that will replace up to 60% of you salary. Supplemental plans and individual policies will usually cover more. Benefits usually last for a set number of years or until you reach retirement age. Long-term disability plans vary quite a bit. Some are wonderful and pay benefits when you need them. Others are very difficult to work with. Usually this is tied to the amount you pay for the premium monthly. Some of the cheaper ones you may inevitably find worthless. If you are employed, you should find out if your employer provides...

A few nice insurance guide images I found: FDIC Insured Image by mandiberg The logos of failed banks cut into get rich quick investment guides Since the beginning of the Great Recession the Federal Deposit Insurance Corporation has taken control of over 70 failed or failing banks. The government has bailed out, or brokered forced sales of a number of other major financial institutions. These emergency conversions are done in one weekend; on Friday the bank is alive, but at 6 PM it begins a massive autopsy, and by Monday morning all traces of the original bank are gone. It is operated under the name of a formal rival bank, many of the employees are gone, and the entire visual signage has changed. These logos disappear from our memory, they disappear from the clutter of the visual landscape, they are even erased from the Internet and its many archives.

Check out these car insurance images: Kelston private toll road Image by brizzle born and bred Kelston toll road opens to traffic 2nd Aug 2014 – An opportunist businessman yesterday opened a new private toll road across fields around the site of a closed main road – but council chiefs have advised drivers not to use it. The 400 metre stretch of road has been laid around the spot on the A431 between Bristol and Bath which has been closed since February, and will cost car drivers £2 to use. It has cost Kelston Toll Road Ltd £150,000 to build the road and Mr Watts estimates it will cost another £150,000 to run the toll road for five months. The toll road needs to have 1,000 cars a day if the scheme is to break even. The road, which does not have planning permission and has not been given safety certificates, re-opens the A431, which is an important ‘back road’ between Bath and Bristol to the north of the River Avon, and massively used by commuters between the two cities. The main road was closed in February’s unprecedented wet weather when a landslip collapsed the road. Local villagers in nearby Kelston, halfway between Bath and Bristol, have long criticised Bath & North East Somerset council for their tardiness in getting the road reopened. Congestion on the only other direct route, the A4, has become a major problem this year. Ironically, just as businessman Mike Watts opened his toll road early, B&NES council confirmed work had finally begun on rebuilding the real main road. Mr Watts, who runs businesses in...
