Importance of the Citizens Insurance in Florida

Share:

The Citizens insurance helps the homeowners of Florida to obtain a perfect insurance for all their properties and it is especially for those who will not be able to get insured for their belonging anywhere else. Being a place of regular natural disasters, most of the companies providing private insurance very reluctantly provide the property coverage to the citizens at an exorbitant price. At times, the natural disasters like the storms cause immense destruction in Florida due to which most of the insurance companies cease to exist in the market and the ones which do suffer substantial damage.

Citizens Insurance and Property Insurance

Due to the natural disasters which take place often in the state, most of the people are not able to purchase the insurance for their property. And for these helpless people, the Citizens insurancecomes as the last option. Instead of going to the other private insurance companies and pleading them for the insurances, the people of Florida always has the option of buying insurance from this particular company.

Although it is a non-profit company, the price for every insurance coverage is quite high than most of the others in the state. This is mainly followed for two reasons. Besides providing the citizens with insurance, the company also ensures that no one else in this industry can actually compete with them. Although the rate of the insurance company is quite high it was approved by the Insurance Regulation’s office.

The insurance company has the authority of canceling coverage and transferring them to the other carriers. The citizens and people of Florida find it quite difficult for being able to get insured by the private carriers. No doubt that the company carries on this risky business in a land of natural calamities which take place almost throughout the whole year. Hence, charging high rates of premium are quite natural.

But it is also true that there are many more insurance companies in the place which mean that the competition exists. Although the prices of insurance do not vary greatly between the different companies including Citizens insurance, it is recommended to do a proper research before buying any.

One can get comprehensive information from the Insurance Regulation Office of Florida regarding the insurance related matters for the different companies of the state but the official website of the same does not provide the citizens with any comparison tools or quotes.

Although it is a well-known fact that the company offers a high price for insurance policies, but at the same time it is also true that under no circumstances will it allow a person to be bankrupt financially due to the natural disasters if he had purchased the policy for the same from the company.

The company being state-owned ensures that the money with which citizens purchase policies goes into the welfare of Florida. The procedures and policies are documented in a straight forward manner and hence comprehending them are easy enough. It has earned the name of trust and loyalty among the citizens of Florida.

Review of IELTS Tutors Online

Share:

I would like to tell you about a site I found this week called IELTS Tutor Pro. I have had some experience with IELTS as I needed this test to gain entry into my university and my other half is taking the test now. At the time I was in education there was no online teaching around and I struggled for some time to pass the IELTS test.

                It was a nice surprise to see a site offering quality teaching and you could tell this straight away by the teachers requirements. All teachers have to have a lot of qualifications and experience before being able to the site and teach IELTS lessons. I actually stumbled into this site through Google as I was researching how online education has taken off in recent years. I told my husband as he is in the process of taking the IELTS at the moment and so I showed him this site and he took a free trial. The experience he had was positive, he mentioned that the reply to his initial request was quick and friendly from one of the teachers and he managed to book a full 5 lesson package on the same day.

                One problem was that the site has no other payment method than Paypal, and as we have had some problems with Paypal we wanted to pay just directly by card. Anyway, it was not a huge problem as we used a friends account.

                It got me thinking about IELTS and other online education sites and if this really will be the future of education. Why do I think this? Well is is a very easy way to learn with no travel fees or costs and the experience, so he told me, was very similar to a face to face lesson. He said the quality of the call (on Skype) was clear and the teacher did use her webcam without any Internet problems. He did mention that the teacher was able to email him the writing tasks back to him after he had finished the lesson so he could review everything she told him to do. One thing he said was missing was that he would have liked the lesson to be recorded so that he could listen back to any problems with his speaking ability.

                Everyone knows that IELTS is a very tough test and I do think that this site is a good addition to the world of online teaching, for example when I looked for other sites offering higher educational IELTS and TOEFL lessons it seemed there were some good other sites but a lack of focus on this particular sector of education. We will see over the next 5 years how online education takes off and if people can make the leap from classroom and private lessons to using Skype and other apps such as Whatsapp. All in all, a good site and I will give further comment once my husband finishes, and passes, his IELTS test.

Please visit their website IELTS Tutors Online to check it out if you are taking the IELTS test soon.

The Demise of iPhone Physical Home Button

Share:

With a few days away from the big reveal, Apple will finally tell us the answer to the most asked question since the rumors and speculation have begun: will Apple finally let go of its iconic Home button? Leaked photos of the iPhone 8 design have led to the conclusion that this will be the first overhaul of the device since it was initially introduced back in 2007.

The removal of the physical Home buttons means that Apple has packed the new iPhone with more software power in order to make up for what the physical Home button had taken away. Apple’s new software, the iOS 11, is sure to have a lot of work to do.

Rumors Galore For The New iPhone

There are many stories surrounding the new iPhone model. Some have been that the new offering from Apple will be made of glass and stainless steel, and that the front part will be just screen from one to another. The quality of the display will also be changed since Apple is said to have moved on from LCD to an OLED display. Let’s hope that the quality improvement also includes durability. With the increased cost of the device should translate into higher iPhone screen repair prices for those who have butter fingers.

Antennas have also been reported to have a new design and the new iPhone will be getting the new iOS 11 and A11 chip from Apple.

Where Is The Home Button?

There are also rumors on the fate of the Home button on the new iPhone 8. As mentioned earlier, it is widely circulated that Apple will remove the physical Home Button. But how will that work?

Luckily, we have gathered reports detailing as to how the new iPhone will work without the physical Home button. It is said that the new iPhone will have a “thin, software bar” at the bottom of the screen that will serve as the replacement of the physical Home button. The user can then drag this bar up to the middle of the screen in order to unlock the phone. If the user is inside an application, the same gesture – dragging up to the middle of the screen – will also be used for multitasking. From there, a flick upwards will close the app and will take the user back to the home screen.

A New Look For Multitasking

The multitasking UI has been changed to look like a series of separate cards that the user can swiped through as compared to the stack of cards that can be seen on current iPhone’s. The software bar in lieu of the Home button has been rumored to be on the iPhone 8 for quite some time now.

However, nothing definite is seen and all we have to do is wait for the release of the iPhone 8 soon.

Apple To Make Their Announcement Soon

For those too eager, do not worry. It is reported that Apple will unveil the iPhone 8 alongside two lower end versions – the iPhone 7s Plus and iPhone 7s – on September 12th. On the same day, Apple will also be releasing the Apple Watch Series 4 and a new 4K Apple TV. The new iPhone models are then expected to be released on September 22nd.
