Insurance Facts – Spontaneous Combustion

Insurance Facts – Spontaneous Combustion

by photo Insurance Facts – Spontaneous Combustion Some, but by no means all, ARPI policies contain a clause excluding spontaneous combustion, namely a fire brought about by the conditions produced within the substance itself.   The key element to spontaneous combustion is the creation of a fire without obvious external factors. Therefore, there have been doubts as to whether or not an insurance policy would cover such a loss, even if it was not specifically excluded. In other words, is spontaneous combustion a type of inherent vice and not created by the interaction of external forces? It is suggested that spontaneous combustion can only take place if certain conditions occur, such as an increase in heat. Therefore, to that extent, spontaneous combustion is not inevitable and relies upon certain favourable conditions existing.   In the case of Duncanson v. Continental Insurance Co., 69 DLR 4th 198; 20 ACWS (3d) 564, the Nova Scotia Court of Appeal was required to decide whether the expression in the policy “including self-ignition” enlarged the meaning of the word “fire” so as to include spontaneous combustion even when there was no fire. When heat was spontaneously generated by the cargo the Court of Appeal found that the words “including self-ignition” embraced damage resulting from spontaneous combustion. It commented that the policy extended the coverage beyond the ordinary meaning of the word fire and included the process before actual ignition takes place. The court looked at various definitions of ignition and spontaneous combustion. It adopted a definition of ignition as being the act of kindling or setting on fire; the act of operation of communicating...

Health Insurance Reform Weekly Easy To Insure ME

by Zartiex Health Insurance Reform Weekly Easy To Insure ME A new study released last week adds to the growing evidence showing that many Americans go without medical care or skip filling a prescription because of high costs. Published in the journal Health Affairs, the study also shows that Americans are less happy with their health care than those in many other countries. Rising health care costs are clearly a major public policy challenge, but new research from the Center for Studying Health System Change shows where significant attention needs to be focused to meaningfully address the problem. The study found that some providers and hospital systems have significant market power to negotiate higher-than-competitive rates. In some cases, they command almost five times what Medicare pays for inpatient services and more than seven times more for outpatient care. As the author puts it: “Few would characterize the variation in hospital and physician payment rates found in this study to be consistent with a highly competitive market.” Easy To Insure ME has the answers Congress returned last week for the first of two lame duck sessions; the first one for the week of November 15 and the second to start November 29 and last until mid-December. Given the results of the election and the size of the Republican majority in the House (largest since 1948), the first week back was more about organizing and posturing than anything called legislation. As to leadership, each party in the Senate re-elected the very same team from the last Congress to serve in the upcoming 112th Congress (2011-2012).  As expected, the House Republicans elected...
Lead Acid Automobile Batteries

Lead Acid Automobile Batteries

by Internet Archive Book Images Lead Acid Automobile Batteries Appropriate recharging from discharge to discharge is a significant key to gaining most favorable life from any Lead Acid Automobile Batteries. There are certain rules for suitable charging and are applicable to all Lead Acid Automobile Batteries types. At the initiate of recharge the charge current can be whichever value that doesnt make an average voltage in cell in the string of battery larger than the gassing voltage in the Lead Acid Automobile Batteries. Until hundred percent of the earlier capacity of discharge has been back, and during the recharge the rate of ampere should be in control to continue the gassing voltage, or lesser, but to minimize charge time as near to the gassing voltage as feasible in the Lead Acid Automobile Batteries. Under the above voltage control in the Lead Acid Automobile Batteries, when hundred percent of the capacity that is discharged has been back, the rate of charge will have usually decayed to the finishing rate of the charge. In the Lead Acid Automobile Batteries system the energy output, the capacity delivered and the average voltage during discharge are reliant on the discharge current. Functional capacity of Lead Acid Automobile Batteries is normally defined from a cell in terms of ampere hours or hours of discharge to the final voltage or ‘knee’ of the curve of discharge. Further to this point, there is availability of little capacity. For each rate energy output is fundamental of output of cell power (amperes x volts) between time zero discharge and the time equivalent to the knee of the curve of...
