U.S. life insurers face mixed impact from tax reforms

first_imgJames Langton Facebook LinkedIn Twitter The corporate income tax rate reduction to 21% from 35% could boost U.S. life insurers’ cash flows and earnings, Fitch says in an announcement published on Tuesday, “depending on how much of the tax saving insurers pass to customers through higher crediting rates or lower pricing.” However, the tax cut will be negative for insurers’ risk-based capital positions, as they will likely face higher capital requirements, “given the reduced tax offset to [capital] charges for credit, market, insurance and operational risk,” Fitch says, and lower deferred tax assets (DTAs). “The negative impacts on capitalization will be alleviated by an increase in the value of the margins in insurers’ statutory reserves, given the lower tax rate that will now apply when margins are released,” Fitch says. It expects insurers whose capital falls below target levels as a result of the tax changes will plan to rebuild their capital positions over time. The reforms, “do not affect the tax-advantaged status of life and annuity products — a reduction in these tax advantages could have triggered a material fall in product sales,” Fitch says.

Summer pneumonia

first_imgSummer pneumonia By Forbes District Veterinarian Nik CroninI recently investigated a case of sudden death in a mob of local lambs. While the losses had been sporadic over the previous couple of weeks, this particular morning two were found to have died overnight. Post mortem examination confirmed that both had died of a very significant pneumonia. A large percentage of the remaining mob seemed to also be affected with widespread coughing, and a number appearing slightly depressed with increased respiratory rates.Pneumonia represents a significant cost to the sheep industry, with production losses related to depressed growth rates on farm, deaths and trimming of the carcase at the abattoir.While pneumonia can be seen at any time of the year and in any class of sheep, we most commonly see it in young sheep in outbreaks like this during summer, hence it is often given the term ‘summer pneumonia’. The disease is most likely set off by an initial viral and/or bacterial infection which can rapidly circulate through the mob. Opportune secondary bacterial invasion of the compromised lung tissue may then lead to more severe clinical disease and larger outbreaks.Stress leading to increased susceptibility is a significant factor in the development of an outbreak of respiratory disease, and can be precipitated by changes in diet, transport, mixing, crowding and extreme climatic conditions, including temperature and humidity. Breed may also be a factor, with outbreaks more common in cross breds and British breeds. During the drought we also saw pneumonia associated with subclinical acidosis, dusty feed substances, and dry, dusty environments in lot feeding set-ups.In the recent case I saw, as such a large percentage of the mob was affected we elected to blanket treat with antibiotics and the producers reported a good response. Interestingly enough, over the next week, they noticed several of their other lamb mobs become affected too, also requiring treatment. However, the need for antibiotic treatment must be carefully considered from case to case and take into account withholding periods. /Public Release.

CMO warns against health complacency

first_imgRelatedCMO warns against health complacency FacebookTwitterWhatsAppEmail Chief Medical Officer (CMO) in the Ministry of Health, Dr. Sheila Campbell-Forrester, says countries will have to pay more attention to protecting their borders against health threats, with the emergence of new diseases and the resurfacing of others previously considered eradicated.She was speaking at the opening of the Faculty of Medical Sciences’ Annual Research Conference and Workshop, at the Mona Visitors’ Lodge, University of the West Indies (UWI), Mona, Wednesday (November 10). The main topic of discussion was ‘Infectious Diseases: Old Foes, New Enemies and Future Threats’.Dr. Campbell-Forrester noted that an outbreak in a country can affect trade as well as travel, whereby “reports of one case in a country where you have had no cases in a long time, can turn your industry upside down”.Recalling her first encounter with malaria, she described its recent reappearance in the island as “frightening”, as the disease was last seen in Jamaica in 1965.“It reminded us that we can never ever let down our guard. We always have to be very alert as to what is happening on the global landscape and the local landscape,” she said.The CMO noted that diseases, such as cholera, eradicated from Jamaica since 1852 are, once again, real threats with an outbreak in Haiti, which is in close proximity to Jamaica.In addition to the movement of persons from country to country, Dr. Campbell-Forrester noted that, climate change was also becoming a significant factor “in the emergence of old foes and the new threats that face us”. She gave as example the recent drought, which resulted in an outbreak of Dengue fever, as well as gastroenteritis.Also speaking at the conference, Disease Prevention and Control Advisor at the Pan American Health Organisation (PAHO), Dr. Jean Marie Rwangabwoba, noted that regardless of how long a country goes without an outbreak of a particular disease, it must still be prepared for one to happen at any time.He argued that a global response, involving governments, private sector and other groups, was needed in the fight against infectious diseases.The Conference continues until Friday (November 12), and will see 68 presentations being made by medical researchers, as well as a workshop on the theme for the conference on Friday. There will also be 15 lectures by professionals drawn from several of Jamaica’s major hospitals, the University of the West Indies and overseas institutions.

Nothing is making us waver from that strategy.”Stressing that the company won’t chase sensationalism, he noted that his style is to tell it like it is, which is the best thing to do even if it hurts in the short-run, “because it builds a foundation of trust over the long term. And that is the time frame I operate in.” Joseph Waring Related Alibaba pulls the plug on Xiami Music HomeAsiaNews BlackBerry CEO says long-term China plan won’t include takeover BlackBerryChinaconsumer marketJohn Chenlast_img read more

Bid Awarded for Kalispell Bypass and Foys Lake Road Interchange

first_img Stay Connected with the Daily Roundup. Sign up for our newsletter and get the best of the Beacon delivered every day to your inbox. Email The Montana Transportation Commission awarded the Kalispell Bypass and Foys Lake Road interchange contract to local company LHC Construction, Inc. in collaboration with engineering firm KLJ, Inc. on June 25.The companies will work with the Montana Department of Transportation (MDT) to replace the existing roundabout with an overpass while widening a stretch of the road to four lanes.The bid was $14.7 million, and the project is scheduled to start in March 2021. A $12.7 million Better Utilizing Investments to Leverage Development (BUILD) grant is funding much of the project, with the remaining money coming from the MDT.The two other bids were listed as “Graham and AECOM” at $21.2 million and “Schellinger, Frontier and MMI” at $18.9 million.The existing roundabout was originally installed as a “temporary infrastructure solution” while funds were accrued for a permanent solution, according to a press release.“We are thrilled to be able to work through the final design process this summer and fall with construction to follow next spring,” Bob Vosen, Missoula District Administrator for the MDT, said in the press release. “Ultimately, we’ll be providing a safer commute for all.”The new design, which is still in the works, is planned to reduce congestion and improve traffic flow at the intersection for the estimated 23,000 vehicles that use the roundabout daily.At an MDT open house in January, officials said the overpass design will be similar to the U.S. Highway 2 overpass, which allows free-flowing traffic with a bridge and southbound and northbound on and off ramps.For more information, visit https://www.mdt.mt.gov/pubinvolve/kalispellbypass/default.shtml.last_img read more

August 4, 2016 Edgar Meza Finance Legal Manufacturing Markets Markets & Policy Share German solar park operator Capital Stage AG is set to take over fellow German solar and wind park operator Chorus Clean Energy.
