This was the second session of the day from our Artemis London 2022 conference, held on September 6th, 2022. The event was Artemis' first insurance-linked securities (ILS) conference held in the City of London and saw more than 240 attendees enjoy a wide-range of sessions and networking opportunities.  Themed largely around the catastrophe bond, attendees heard from expert speakers that have been in the sector for years, as well as newcomers with ideas of how to innovate the cat bond and ILS market going forwards.  Attendees came from as far afield as New Zealand, Hawaii, Asia, North and South America, Bermuda, as well as a large European contingent, plus as you'd expect numerous London marketplace leaders in ILS and reinsurance.  This second video from the event features a panel discussion on climate, disaster risk and parametric catastrophe bonds, under the title of "Filling the Gaps", moderated by Maria Rapin, CEO of Nephila Climate.  Panellists participating in this discussion were: Lorenzo Volpi, Managing Partner, Leadenhall Capital Partners; Michael Bennett, Head of Derivatives & Structured Finance, World Bank Treasury; Nils Ossenbrink, Managing Partner, Head of Distribution and Products, Twelve Capital. The group discussed how instruments such as parametric cat bonds fit into ILS fund investment portfolios and how managers think about underwriting them.  On parametric cat bonds, Volpi of Leadenhall Capital Partners explained that, "Overall, premium is also important and ultimately you need to be paid for the risk, while the type of trigger is also an important factor when we look at these."  Ossenbrink of Twelve Capital added, "We believe for an institutional investor, or other investor, it's an ideal solution and really something we should try to grow."  Bennett, from the World Bank Treasury explained how the institution looks at the ILS market when bringing cat bond deals to market, "We will do everything we can to put it in a package that works for you modelling wise.  "We think we're bringing you something very valuable, the investor community. We're bringing you highly-diversifying risk, in an absolutely secure package, as it's the World Bank issuing these bonds.  "We think we're providing the market something extraordinarily valuable so we always ask you to work with us and have some flexibility."

Candi Milo is the busiest actress in voiceovers today. Among her numerous accomplishments, she was honored to take the mantle of the voice of Granny in all Warner Brothers Animation projects after the passing of the legendary voice talent, June Foray. For example, you heard Candi as Granny in Space Jam 2: A New Legacy with LeBron James, and also in various Looney Tunes cartoons.  She's well-known for voicing Dexter in Dexter's Laboratory, The Flea in Mucha Lucha, Coco and Cheese in Foster's Home for Imaginary Friends, and literally thousands of other well-known characters. She may well be the voice of your childhood. She also happens to be an Annie Award nominee. Not only has Candi performed voiceover work in countless film and TV projects, you may have seen in her any number of on-camera commercials. On stage, she starred with Jennifer Holliday in the first touring production of Dreamgirls, directed by none other than the renowned, Michael Bennett.             Candi has published a dark comedy memoir, Surviving the Odd, which offers a glimpse into her wildly inappropriate childhood as seen through the eyes of a 7-year-old who unravels the story of how her once prominent-but-now-fading comedian/singer father, Tony, left show business in 1968 to open one of the first board and care homes in California – Milo Arms – to care for and shelter developmentally disabled and emotionally disturbed adults. I've read Surviving the Odd, and I can tell you it's a beautifully written, intense and harrowing tale, but told with incredible heart and a lot of funny stuff, too. We'll be hearing more about Surviving the Odd shortly. Candi has performed as a singer, stand-up comic, and starred in her one-person nightclub show across the country. She also gives inspirational talks about her unusual childhood and how it informed her life as an actor, mother, and passionate advocate for people dealing with mental illness and homelessness. Much like her father, Candi also gives voice to the homeless because too many people pretend not to see them on the street.For the record, Candi has lent her extraordinary voice talent to a few scripts that Steve has written – including playing Zadavia in the Warner Bros. cartoon, Loonatics Unleashed.

This is the third part of my conversation with author Margaret Hall, whose captivating new book is titled Gemignani – Life And Lessons From Broadway And Beyond. If you missed the first two parts you may want to catch up on those episodes before listening to this one. As the title suggests Margaret's book is a biography of Paul Gemignani who served as the Music Director for more than 40 Broadway musicals including the 3 shows that are the focus of this episode.  The first two are Sweeny Todd and Merrily We Roll Along and Gemignani's contribution to these musicals and his close working relationship with Stephen Sondheim and Hal Prince has been widely acknowledged but never to the level of detail and insight that Margaret brings to them. However, Gemignani's enormous contribution to the development of Dreamgirls and his close collaboration with that show's director and creator, Michael Bennett, has been a closely guarded secret for decades and was revealed for the first time in Margaret's book. You will hear the reasons for all of this mystery and subterfuge later in the episode.  We also focus briefly on Paul's work on the Broadway musical EVITA and his interactions with Andrew Lloyd Webber and Patti Lupone.

29 de junio | Nueva YorkJusto como me los esperaba. Bienvenido a La Wikly.Leer esta newsletter te llevará 6 minutos y 24 segundos.🇺🇸 Elige tu aventuraPor Emilio DoménechLo importante: varios grupos demócratas están apostando recursos en las campañas primarias de candidatos de extrema derecha que creen que serán más fáciles de derrotar en noviembre. La apuesta en es un juego peligroso que podría tener consecuencias atroces para la democracia estadounidense.Especialmente, en un contexto en el que Donald Trump y sus principales aliados políticos han dejado claro que habrían revertido los resultados electorales de 2020 pese a la falta de pruebas sobre un fraude electoral nunca demostrado.Explícamelo: este martes, dos primarias republicanas dejaron ver las iniciativas demócratas que pretenden aupar a candidatos extremistas.En Illinois, el gobernador demócrata J.B. Pritzker y la Asociación de Gobernadores Demócratas se han dejado decenas de millones de dólares en atacar al alcalde de Aurora, el moderado Richard Irvin, y en ayudar al senador estatal de extrema derecha Darren Bailey, apoyado por Trump este pasado sábado cuando ya lideraba las encuestas. Bailey se enfrentará a Pritzker en noviembre.En Colorado, el grupo demócrata del estado invirtió 4 millones de dólares en impulsar la carrera del congresista estatal Ron Hanks, impulsor de las teorías de la conspiración de las elecciones de 2020 que asistió a las manifestaciones del 6 de enero en el Capitolio, para que pudiera ganar al empresario Joe O’Dea, un rival más difícil para el senador demócrata Michael Bennett que los demócratas también atacaron. O’Dea se enfrentará a Bennett en noviembre.Existen otros ejemplos con resultados dispares de hace unas semanas:En Pennsylvania, grupos demócratas lograron que los votantes republicanos nominaran al candidato a gobernador Doug Mastriano, otro aliado de Trump e impulsor de las teorías de la conspiración del fraude electoral no demostradas de las elecciones de 2020.Y en California, grupos demócratas también invirtieron dinero para descarrilar la reelección del congresista David Valadao, uno de los pocos republicanos que votaron a favor del segundo impeachment de Trump.Contexto: la inspiración de los demócratas se remonta a las elecciones generales de 2012, cuando la senadora Claire McCaskill de Missouri invirtió recursos en potenciar la campaña del candidato extremista Todd Akin contra el que terminaría ganando de paliza.Curiosamente, ahora se hace impensable que un demócrata gane una carrera estatal como la que logró McCaskill aquel año. En 2018, la derrotó el actual senador republicano Josh Hawley, uno de los que abogó por revertir los resultados electorales en la cámara alta en 2020. El del puñito.¿Y ahora? Todavía es pronto para concluir si la estrategia de los demócratas dará sus frutos en noviembre, pero el año se presenta fatídico para el partido. La inflación está disparada, la popularidad de Biden está por los suelos y la incertidumbre económica para los próximos meses es máxima.Si alguno de los energúmenos que han impulsado termina llegando a una posición de poder, sea la gubernatura en Illinois o en Pennsylvania, parte de la culpa la tendrán ellos.Más información en The New York Times.🗺 Mapas de SCOTUSLo importante: el Tribunal Supremo de Estados Unidos restableció el martes un mapa congresual federal del estado de Louisiana después de que una corte inferior lo bloqueara porque había determinado que violaba la Ley de Derechos Electorales.Contexto: la Ley de Derechos Electorales de 1965, amparada en la 15ª Enmienda, es la legislación federal que prohíbe expresamente las prácticas discriminatorias a la comunidad afroamericana en el contexto del derecho al sufragio.En el caso del mapa originalmente bloqueado en Louisiana, solo uno de los seis distritos está formado mayoritariamente por ciudadanos negros, mientras que aproximadamente uno de cada tres ciudadanos del estado son negros. Ergo, hay una desproporción que iría en contra de la ley.Explícamelo: el tribunal inferior había dictaminado a principios de junio que la legislatura de Louisiana, de mayoría republicana, debía rehacer los mapas congresuales y crear un segundo distrito de mayoría negra para cumplir con la Ley de Derechos Electorales.Esta decisión se produjo después de que el gobernador de Louisiana, el demócrata John Bel Edwards, intentara vetar el mapa propuesto por la legislatura.Pero su veto fue anulado por legisladores republicanos e independientes de las cámaras estatales y tuvo que ser finalmente apelado en la esfera judicial.¿Y ahora? El Supremo también resolvió la suspensión de otro fallo de un tribunal inferior sobre un caso similar en Alabama, cuyos argumentos se considerarán cuando comience el nuevo mandato de la Corte en octubre.En ese caso de Alabama, el tribunal inferior también había ordenado a la legislatura estatal que rehiciera el trazado de los mapas congresuales porque no había suficientes distritos con una gran población negra para cumplir con la Ley de Derechos Electorales.Más información en POLITICO.💥 Testimonio explosivoLo importante: el comité especial que investiga el Asalto al Capitolio tuvo este martes su sexta audiencia para recabar testimonios que prueben la relación del expresidente Donald Trump con los disturbios del ataque del 6 de enero de 2021.En esta sesión, la testigo estrella era Cassidy Hutchinson, exayudante del que fuera jefe de Gabinete de Trump, Mark Meadows.Explícamelo: Hutchinson declaró sobre los enfados del expresidente por los resultados de las elecciones en 2020. La testigo contó, entre otras cosas, que Trump dijo a miembros del equipo de la Casa Blanca que el entonces vicepresidente Mike Pence merecía los cánticos de los alborotadores que pedían que lo ahorcaran.Según el testimonio, el expresidente también le dijo a sus consejeros que no le importaba si los manifestantes llevaban armas y ordenó al Servicio Secreto que retirara los dispositivos que estaban usando para examinar a los seguidores que querían asistir a su mitin en aquella jornada.¿Y ahora? El anuncio de la audiencia se produjo por sorpresa el lunes por la tarde, apelando a “pruebas obtenidas recientemente”, pero el resto de citas están todavía programadas para julio.Emilio estuvo siguiendo la audiencia en Twitch, que publicaremos en YouTube a lo largo del día, y publicará en Newtral un artículo explicativo sobre el tema.Más información en NPR.🗳 Monitor electoralBreaking🇺🇸 Varios congresistas se enfrentan a adversarios en primarias a lo largo del país [resultados actualizados de este martes]POLITICO (en inglés; 10 minutos)🇺🇸 La carrera a gobernador en Oregon pone en serios peligros a los demócratasThe New York Times (en inglés; 6 minutos)🇱🇾 Funcionarios libios rivales mantienen conversaciones electorales dirigidas por la ONU en SuizaAl Jazeera (en inglés; 4 minutos)🇧🇷 Lula lanza una campaña ambientalista y centristaThe Los Angeles Times (en español; 4 minutos)👾 En el DiscordUn retazo de Maricopa Land@dennisv83 comparte un enlace interesantísimo: “Thomas Raynard James pasó 32 años preso en una cárcel estatal de Florida por un crimen que cometió una persona con una identidad muy similar a la suya.

Ken Waisman is a Tony Award winning producer who made his Broadway debut with the play And Miss Reardon Drinks A Little. In addition to Grease he went on to produce Over Here! starring the Andrews Sisters, and the long running plays Agnes Of God, and Torch Song Trilogy. Tom Moore is a leading theater, film and television director whose work on Broadway includes his debut with Grease, Over Here!, Moon Over Buffalo starring Carol Burnett, and Night Mother. Their new book is made up of a the personal, behind-the-scenes memories of the show's creative and production teams, as well as scores of cast members from Grease's original cast, five national tours, and record breaking eight-year run on Broadway. In this episode you will hear about how Ken discovered the show in a ramshackle community theater production in Chicago; why Ken chose Tom to direct the show instead of Michael Bennett; how Tom almost turned the show down; and how together they discovered and cast more future stars than probably any other musical in history! Grease alumni include Adrianne Barbeau, Barry Bostwick, Jeff Conaway, Carole Demas, Greg Evigan, Peter Gallagher, Richard Gere, Marilu Henner, Judy Kaye, Rex Smith, Patrick Swayze, John Travolta, Treat Williams, and Adrian Zmed. As well as the future Broadway directors Walter Bobbie, Scott Ellis, and Jerry Zaks. Has any other show produced that many stars?  Even if Grease is not your favorite show, I feel certain that you will be fascinated by their stories of how the show came together, as well as the casting stories of John Travolta, Patrick Swayze and Richard Gere. Broadway Nation is written and produced by me, David Armstrong.

Michael Bennett is a unicorn. The NFL defensive lineman for the Dallas Cowboys, is both a Super Bowl Champion and a self-described feminist. Pele Bennett is no slacker either: she's a food advocate and a skilled Polynesian dancer. Together, the Bennetts have taken on everything from racial justice work to authoring a children's book to parenting three daughters. Today, the Bennetts dive deep on the importance of empathy in all aspects of parenting and life. “I don't think it's ever going to be peaceful. I don't think we'll ever be perfect because everyone's perspectives, everyone's views, are so different. But I do think that if we just try to understand each other, whether I feel it was right or wrong, then we can keep moving forward.” Check out Michael & Pele's show Mouthpeace.

This is the second half of my recent conversation with author Liza Gennaro, whose fascinating new book is titled: Making Broadway Dance.  If you missed part one you may want to catch up on that episode before listening to this one. Liza is currently the Dean of Musical Theater at the Manhattan School of Music and she also has had a very active and successful career as a dancer and choreographer. Interestingly, she is closely related to this subject matter of her book because her father was the Tony Award winning choreographer and star dancer, Peter Gennaro. He is profiled in the book as well as in this episode. By the end of Part 1, we had made it to the late 1940s when Agnes de Mille was dominating the field of Broadway choreography. Between 1943 and 1945, De Mille had four hits in a row – Oklahoma!, One Touch of Venus, Bloomer Girl, and Carousel – and three of them choreographed in her signature “Americana” style. This unprecedented string of successes made her the most powerful choreographer in the commercial theater, and soon led to her becoming the first director-choreographer of the “Golden Age” with Rodgers & Hammerstein's Allegro. De Mille's most significant contribution to the Broadway Musical was breaking the mold of the traditional Broadway chorus girl by insisting on hiring actor/dancers who could fully embody the characters that they were playing.  This new approach to Broadway dance, and this new kind of Broadway dancer, would be adopted by everyone who followed in her footsteps – especially Jerome Robbins – who years later would write, “Agnes broke the conception of what the Broadway dancer could be in the Broadway Musical. What they looked like, what was desired of them, and what their contribution to the show was.” And, as you will hear, Robbins took that idea and ran with it, just as De Mille's “Americana” style was starting to lose its luster. That's just the beginning Later in the episode Liza and I discuss Michael Kidd, Bob Fosse, Gower Champion, Michael Bennett, Graciela Daniele, Susan Stroman, Kathleen Marshall, Bill T.
