Not even an injury is stopping the crew from dropping another episode for the people! First the CEO breaks down how hitting two of their favorite Minneapolis hot spots caused a "misstep" aka ankle sprain. Adding insult to injury, the roster officially became smaller by one as somebody got cut! When you end up out at a place where someone you previously got with is there, what is the proper etiquette to make it known that you are trying to rekindle "the spark"? After coming back to the game, Lume's heater seems to be simmering down a bit. In his come back to Earth moment, a reminder (or PSA if you will) about what is the difference is between the podcast and real life. Open relationships, is the team here for them or not? The answers may surprise you...and of course Kristen can't help but take this topic in a direction that is a little wild. QQH(41:11): Kristen discusses the TikTok phenomena that is "Coop and Roof". Then Lume has some more for the enigma that is Brooklyn Nets star Kyrie Irving. The College World Series plays host to a competition that has the Quaranteam extremely impressed.

Ruskin Bond Ruskin Bond was born in 1934 in Kasauli in Punjab, India. His first novel was published when he was 22, A Room on the Roof and it won the John Llewellyn Rhys Prize. He specialised in short stories of which he wrote more than five hundred. He lives in Mussoorie.  Bond was born when India was part of the British Empire.. His father taught English to the Indian princesses of the Indian princely state of Nawanagar and bond lived with his family at the palace when he was a boy.  At the beginning of the Second World War, his father Aubrey Alexander Bond joined the Royal Air Force. When Ruskin was only eight his father left his mother Edith Clarke and married an Indian, Hindu woman called Hari. (In the story, which has lots of autobiographical details, he says it was his mother who married an Indian man after his father died). His father arranged for him to come to New Delhi where he was posted and Ruskin was happy there and describes his childhood as magical. But his father died during the War when Ruskin was only 10. He went to an English style boarding school in Shimla and won a number of writing prizes when he was there. After finishing at Shimla he went to the Channel Islands (close to the French Coast but a possession of the English Crown) because his aunt lived there. He then went to London and worked in a photo studio. When his first novel was a success he used the money to pay his fare back to India. He worked as a writer there and has been a writer ever since. Despite his British ancestry he feels India. He has said about being Indian that race did not make him one, religion did not make him one, but history did.  Most of his works deal with small town India, particularly the hill stations where he grew up. He has described small town India as his India.  If You Appreciate The Work I've Put In Here You could buy me a coffee  https://ko-fi.com/tonywalker (https://ko-fi.com/tonywalker) Become a Patronhttps://www.patreon.com/barcud (https://www.patreon.com/barcud) And you can join my mailing list and get a  free audiobook:  https://bit.ly/dalstonvampire (https://bit.ly/dalstonvampire) Music By The Heartwood Institute https://bit.ly/somecomeback*** (https://bit.ly/somecomeback***) Most of Ruskin's stories aren't ghost stories though he admits a fondness for the work of Lafcadio Haearn, an Irish writer who settled in Japan via the USA and specialised in ghost stories with a Japanese background.

Legendary comics creator Howard Chaykin rejoins the show to celebrate the conclusion of his Time2 opus, soon to be released in The Time2 Omnibus (Image Comics)! We talk about revisiting Time2 after a three-decade hiatus, his original intention for that world, the thrill & sleaze of NYC in his youth, and what he's learned about comics storytelling over the years. We get into the influence of musical theater, jazz, and Cinemascope tableaux on his work, the enlightening experience of Gil Kane's commentary/annotation of the movie Cover Girl, the parallels between fight scenes in superhero comics and people breaking into song in musicals, and how he's carved out a half-century career in mainstream comics while pushing back against the toxicity and fan-expectations of that genre (while also fighting purity culture). We discuss the Bartlett Sher staging of Fiddler on the Roof that left him in tears (& made him cry again when he described it to me), whether he can afford to be happy, the ways he's become more formalist as he came to understand the language & syntax of comics (as he teaches here), the musical he'd love to see, the joy of being an Outmander, why his neighbors still consider him "New Yorker on permanent leave" even though he's been in CA more than half his life, and MUCH more!

Dogs Are Smarter Than People: Writing Life, Marriage and Motivation

Every once in awhile, a dog climbs on the roof of a house and chills out, but if you're Huck the dog, you do this all the time. How often? So often that your owner has to put a sign on the door. Join us as we talk about Huck and also about defining happiness, doggy style. Have you ever come home and been like, “Dang, why is my dog so happy?” In general dogs are really pretty cool happy animals. And they are amazing because unlike some of us (cough) they don't hide how they feel. It's all just out there. According to Global Dog Breeds, the reasons dogs are so happy are these: They forgiveThey live in the presentThey are happy with what they have right there, right now.They embrace life.They know how to get cozy and comfy.They trust their owners.  Carrie's taking a pretty cool course for free on EdX (sadly, this is not an ad) all about happiness and it's taught by Arthur Brooks, a professor at Harvard. And all these things about why dogs are happy made her think about that class and some of the teachings from it. Brooks says, “It turns out that the way we think about happiness is informed by where we live. For example, in some cultures, happiness is defined by social harmony. In others, it's defined by personal achievement. So the way we answer the question are you happy depends, to an extent, on where we're from.” Brooks interviewed the Dalai Lama and his Holiness, the 14th Dalai Lama, Tenzin Gyatso shared the following (the quote is taken directly), “I think very purpose of our daily life. For happy life, firstly, we need some sense of oneness of 7 billion human being on this planet. We have to live together. An individual's future depends on them, one individual, one of the 7 billion human beings in the group know that.” Brooks summarizes his points as follows, “The first is he taught us tonight that happiness comes from being useful and having a life's purpose, and that purpose, the purpose that we have, our highest purpose is caring for each other, lifting each other up, remembering that each of us is one of 7 billion human beings.The second way that he made this point is when he talked about unhappiness, which is our own creation.Unhappiness comes in our own mind because of self-centeredness.We become unhappy because we're unnatural, and we are unnatural whom we are thinking only of ourselves. We can only be truly happy when we get out of this creation that is unhappiness by focusing on other people.The third point that he made was about our intellectual lives, about research and investigation, about our brains, and the importance of sanctifying our intellectual work by putting it in service of our hearts, putting it in service of our love for other people, that in fact, our hearts can be most effective when our brains are fully engaged in the purpose, sanctifying that purpose and loving each other.And finally, the fourth way that His Holiness made this point that happiness comes from love for others is that we need education, that we need an education system that teaches each of us unity and oneness and sisterhood and brotherhood. And that is our leadership challenge.” In an opinion piece for the Washington Post, Brooks and the Dalai Lama wrote, “The objective is not to vanquish a person I considered my enemy; it is to destroy the illusion that he or she was my enemy in the first place. And the way to do this is by overcoming my own negative emotions. Perhaps taking that approach seems unrealistic to you, like a kind of discipline only a monk could achieve through years of concentrated meditation. But that isn't true. You can do it, too, regardless of your belief system. The secret is to express warmheartedness, kindness and generosity, even in disagreement — and especially when others show you contempt or hatred.” How do you do that when it feels like other people are taking away yours or others essential human rights? Or putting lives at stake? Or creating or revoking or refusing to revoke polices (be it about guns, abortions, clean water, property rights) that you feel are essential? That's really the question.

The Florida Insurance Roundup from Lisa Miller & Associates

Play Episode Listen Later Jun 23, 2022 35:32


The Florida Legislature in a May special session passed a series of reforms to help stabilize a property insurance market that has seen a growing number of carriers stop writing business or becoming insolvent.  Homeowners rates keep growing by double-digits and coverage is increasingly difficult to obtain. Former Florida Deputy Insurance Commissioner Lisa Miller talks with a lawmaker who was one of the handful of leaders behind the reforms and the head of a litigation analytics firm on whether the two new laws will help re-right the marketplace and lower homeowners rates - and what further reform is most needed next. Show NotesFlorida's newest property insurance and consumer reforms build on legislation passed in 2019 and 2021.  The two new laws (SB 2-D & SB 4-D) target excessive litigation, contractor solicitation abuse, and provide $2 billion in no-cost reinsurance coverage to carriers to improve the affordability and availability of insurance coverage.  More than 12 companies have stopped writing new business since January.  Another seven companies have become insolvent since 2019 - six in just the past 12 months.  “This was a matter of first aid to save a dying patient, which was Florida's property insurance market but there's absolutely still more to do,” said Representative David Smith (R-Winter Springs) who supported the two bills that became law and took effective immediately on May 26, 2022.  “There are some homeowners that the legislation is going to help immediately.  But longer term, I think homeowners will see lower rates and an impact of the rates going up less because of the stabilization of the market….we're on the right track.”According to the National Association of Insurance Commissioners' data, as reported by state Insurance Commissioner David Altmaier, Florida has 9% of all homeowners insurance claims in the US yet has 79% of all homeowners insurance claims lawsuits.  The number of property insurance lawsuits in the state has increased 363% in the past nine years.  The current excesses are driven by fraudulent roof claims.  “A lot of the new measures are litigation related with the intent that either the laws will reduce the lawsuit amounts or reduce the cost of each lawsuit to the insurance industry, which would then translate to lower insurance premiums for Floridians,” said Wesley Todd, CEO of CaseGlide, a Tampa-based litigation analytics and software firm serving the insurance industry.  He noted the real question is exactly when rates will come down given the reforms will take time to be reflected in renewal policies over the coming months.  Insurance companies and their reinsurers will then want to see “years of data” that suggests litigation costs are under control.  “I believe that lawmakers still have one more thing left to do, which is get rid of the attorney fees statute, which is the structure that incentivizes attorneys to sue insurance companies.  I think until they do that, we won't actually start to see rates for Floridians decrease.”Florida's attorney fees statute (627.428 f.s.) requires an insurance company pay attorney fees when the policyholder prevails in a lawsuit against the company.  It has helped in catastrophes such as 1992's devastating Hurricane Andrew, to encourage representation “so that consumers would have a level playing field,” host Miller said.  “What has happened is that there are contractors who use that statute to their own benefit and will have their favorite partner, a plaintiff lawyer, and they become a team, once the consumer is kind of marginalized, if you will.”Rep. Smith said the new reforms prohibit awards of attorney fees to contractors or other assignees of an Assignment of Benefits (AOB) contract.  “Again, we've got to do more.  And the legislature never wants to deny the consumer, that homeowner the ability to get an attorney and be represented and get their day in court,” he said.  While Florida has weather issues to deal with that can impact insurance rates, “it's the litigation costs that are driving these rates up and why reinsurance companies don't want to take the actuarial risk of having all this litigation in Florida.  It's not the hurricanes they fear, it's the trial lawyer,” Rep. Smith said.Todd agreed and said the “surgical approach” the legislature rightfully utilized in the 2019 and 2021 reforms was meant to solve the litigation problem without getting rid of the attorney fees statue, but that hasn't worked.  “If we put a lot of loopholes and obstacles in front of the plaintiff attorneys, but they get paid to jump through those loopholes because they get paid for all their attorney fees, then are they really obstacles?  They're things that actually create more revenue for the attorneys because they're being paid to jump through hoops,” Todd argued.“It's not the $35,000 roof that is the burden on the insurance company,” added Rep. Smith.  “It's the $150,000 or $200,000 in attorney fees that they get paid.  That's what creates the litigation risk.”  He discussed his idea of creating a blue ribbon commission to meet outside the time constraints of the legislature's annual 60-day session and five weeks of prior committee meetings to collect data, benchmark other states' efforts, and “to get everybody that has a vested interest in solving the problem to everybody that's part of the problem to come together to be part of the solution,” Rep. Smith said.  In the meantime, Senator Jim Boyd (R-Bradenton) who chairs the Insurance and Banking Committee is expected to hold workshops this summer to provide more information and data that some lawmakers complained they didn't have during the special session.Host Miller and her guests also discussed what wasn't in the new reform laws: Citizens Property Insurance Corporation, the state-created and taxpayer-backed “insurer of last resort.”  Its policy count is rapidly approaching one million as private insurance companies have gone insolvent or shed policies because of underwriting losses.  It under-market rates and growing policy count burden will subject the rest of Florida's policyholders across almost all insurance lines (including automobile & surplus lines) to pay a special assessment if Citizens runs out of money to pay claims, as it did during the spate of 8 hurricanes during the 2004-2005 season.Host Miller agreed with both of her guests that the legislature needs to eliminate the attorney fees statute.  She said lawmakers should also go beyond the roof deductible option that consumers can access as part of the new law and instead require actual cash value for roof replacement as 40 other states do.  She also advocates for elimination of AOB contracts and reform of the Florida Hurricane Catastrophe Fund that could save homeowners an estimated average $150 a year on their premium.Links and Resources Mentioned in this EpisodeCaseGlideRepresentative David SmithSB 2-D & SB 4-D (bills covering the 2022 reforms)Final Special Session 2022 Florida Legislature Bill Watch (Lisa Miller & Associates)Florida Statutes section 627.428 (on attorney fees)Top 20 Attorneys Filing Property Insurance Lawsuits - 2022 Q1 (Florida Department of Financial Services, April 2022)Florida Insurance Industry's Litigation, 2013-2021 (Citizens Property Insurance Corporation)Top 10 Florida Domestic Insurers Net Income Losses (from Citizens Property Insurance Corporation, March 2022)Private Insurance Industry Cumulative Rate Filings 2020-2021 (from Citizens Property Insurance Corporation, March 2022)Florida's 2019 AOB Reform (HB 7065) (Lisa Miller & Associates)Florida's 2021 Litigation & Solicitation Reform (SB 76) (Lisa Miller & Associates)Florida's 2022 Litigation Reform & Consumer Protections (SB 2-D & SB 4-D) (Lisa Miller & Associates)CFO/Department of Financial Services Insurance Consumer Helpline (1-877-693-5236)** The Listener Call-In Line for your recorded questions and comments to air in future episodes is 850-388-8002 or you may send email to LisaMiller@LisaMillerAssociates.com **The Florida Insurance Roundup from Lisa Miller & Associates, brings you the latest developments in Property & Casualty, Healthcare, Workers' Compensation, and Surplus Lines insurance from around the Sunshine State.  Based in the state capital of Tallahassee, Lisa Miller & Associates provides its clients with focused, intelligent, and cost conscious solutions to their business development, government consulting, and public relations needs.  On the web at www.LisaMillerAssociates.com or call 850-222-1041.  Your questions, comments, and suggestions are welcome!  Date of Recording 6/22/2022.

It's June 20th. This day in 1979, Jimmy Carter held a ceremony to celebrate the new solar panels that had been installed on the White House roof.

Hello to you listening in Milan, Italy!Coming to you from Whidbey Island, Washington this is Stories from Women Who Walk with 60 Seconds for Thoughts on Thursday and your host, Diane Wyzga.Here on Whidbey cleaning house gutters is a regular event. From up here on the roof of my house the whole neighborhood looks different. This bird's-eye view reveals what I can't see with my feet on the ground below.Up on the roof is a good way to escape from the everyday and pretend, much as you might have as a child climbing trees, finding a secret space, creating a fantasy world between you and the sky. I know I'm up here to clean the gutters but it's also where I get an insight into a difficult situation, an answer that's been eluding me, or even the Ah Ha! of a new idea.Practical Tip: You don't have to climb up on the roof to become inspired. Maybe there is a balcony, a hill, a tree you can perch in; or, close your eyes and imagine you are in a safe space between the ground and the sky inviting the perfect answer to your doubts. When we look up and out we see differently. This shift in perspective rewards our view with answers.

HARVEY FIERSTEIN wrote the books ( or adapted the books ) for the Broadway musicals Funny Girl, Kinky Boots. Newsies as well as Torch Song Trilogy (Tony®, Drama Desk, and OBIE Awards), La Cage aux Folles (Tony® and Drama Desk Awards), The Sissy Duckling (Humanitas Award), A Catered Affair (12 Drama Desk nominations), Safe Sex (Ace Award), Legs Diamond, Spookhouse, Flatbush Tosca, Common Ground, and more. His political editorials have been published in The New York Times, TV Guide, The Huffington Post, and broadcast on PBS's “In the Life”. His children's book, The Sissy Duckling, is now in its fifth printing. As an actor, Mr. Fierstein is known worldwide for his performances in films like Mrs. Doubtfire and Independence Day, and on stage in Hairspray (Tony Award®), Fiddler on the Roof, La Cage aux Folles, Torch Song Trilogy (Tony Award®), and TV shows such as “Smash,” “How I Met Your Mother,” “The Good Wife,” “Cheers” (Emmy nomination), “The Simpsons,” and “Nurse Jackie.” Acclaimed originally for his groundbreaking writing and performance in his 1981 Torch Song Trilogy, Harvey Fierstein has refined and redefined the persona of the drag queen in the theater. Two years later, Fierstein brought that insight and humor into his book for the musical adaptation of La Cage aux Folles. As Frank Rich wrote in the New York Times, this “is the first Broadway musical ever to give center stage to a homosexual love affair – but don't go expecting an earthquake. The show at the Palace is the schmaltziest, most old-fashioned major musical Broadway has seen since ‘Annie,' and it's likely to be just as popular with children of all ages.”  Fierstein subsequently wrote the book for Legs Diamond (1988) with music and lyrics by Peter Allen, who also starred in the show. He did not return to Broadway until 2002, when he took on the role of Edna Turnblad in the musical adaptation of Hairspray (book by Mark O'Donnell and Thomas Meehan; music by Marc Shaiman; lyrics by Scott Wittman and Marc Shaiman). According to Ben Brantley, Fierstein's performance as Edna “is not just a cross-dressing sight gag. She's every forgotten housewife, recreated in monumental proportions and waiting for something to tap her hidden magnificence.”  After playing Tevye in the 2004 revival of Fiddler on the Roof, Harvey Fierstein wrote the book and starred in the 2008 musical, A Catered Affair. As a writer and actor, Fierstein has won three Drama Desk Awards and four Tonys®, most recently for his portrayal of Edna in Hairspray. His most recent memoir is called I Was Better Last Night.

When Tony Award-winning actor and playwright Harvey Fierstein was growing up in New York City in the 60s, he was surrounded by the beginnings of the gay rights movement, and protest art and avant-garde theater was the norm. "I didn't know that being gay was sad until I got out into the world and they told me that," he said in our interview. "All the gay people I know are really kind of happy." And writing from that lens has informed his work ever since. In his new memoir, I Was Better Last Night, Harvey shares the six year journey to get his breakthrough play, Torch Song Trilogy, on Broadway, and shares other behind the scenes stories from hit Broadway plays like Hairspray, Fiddler on the Roof, and La Cage aux Folles.
