Actuarial Science Applying Frequency-Based Experience Rating No Claim Discount Scheme to Health Insurance

Words: 1194 Length: 3 Pages Document Type: Essay Paper #: 48163771

Discount Scheme for Health Insurance

No Claim Discount (NCD) Schemes are Frequency-rating systems and are commonly used in insurance. NCD schemes represent an attempt to categorize policyholders into relatively homogeneous risk groups who pay premiums relative to their claims experience. Those who have made few claims in recent years are rewarded with discounts on their initial premium, and hence are enticed to stay with the company (Boland, 2006). Depending on the rules in the scheme, new policyholders may be required to pay the full premium initially and then will obtain discounts in the future as a result of claim free years. The general insurance actuary modeling an NCD scheme would frequently use Markov chain methods to investigate how premiums and movements take place over time.

No Claims Discount scheme is a form of frequency rating used in health insurance; the practice is to consider the number of years since the…… [Read More]

Against Jane Claiming to Be Hispanic-American in

Words: 1096 Length: 3 Pages Document Type: Essay Paper #: 78504409

against Jane claiming to be Hispanic-American in her ads.

The main argument against Jane claiming to be Hispanic-American in her ads is that it is dishonest. Neither she nor most of her employees are Hispanic, and it appears that the ad would violate the concept of truth in advertising and expose her to liability. Likewise, at first blush, it seems as if there are no good arguments for Jane claiming to be Hispanic-American in her ads. However, Jane needs to increase sales to keep the business afloat. Hispanic-American customers may be more willing to buy products from a Hispanic-owned business. The issue becomes whether the fact that Jane is (or, rather, is not) Hispanic is a material fact. If Jane was running a Mexican restaurant, her ethnicity might be critical. However, unless there is something culturally significant about the clothing that depends on Jane's ethnicity, it seems unlikely that her…… [Read More]

Addressing a Boot Camp's Program's Claim of a 0% ecidivism ate

The Claim: A Boot Camp Program un by a Local Sheriff's Department Claims a ecidivism ate of 0%

My assessment on the accuracy of the above statement and this discussion in general, will make use of a number of fundamental terms: corrective boot camp program, recidivism and shock incarceration. A corrective boot camp program, to begin with, refers to a facility that makes use of the techniques applied during military training sessions, to instill a culture of 'doing what is right' in youthful first-time offenders. ecidivism, according to the Bureau of Justice Statistics (2013), is the tendency to repeat criminal activities, leading to re-arrest, during the three-year duration following release from a correctional facility. Finally, shock incarceration, like the name suggests, is a program used on first time offenders, to…… [Read More]

Kamp's Claim

Kamp's Claim

Soccer: A creepy perversion of a fun game

Sports should be sensational. Sports should resemble their old form, their past history, that of the gladiators. In its current form, in America, it has been contorted to a gentle activity. It is not a true rivalry, a competition to the death of honorable opponents. Kamp, a popular sports writer, called soccer, "a creepy perversion of a fun game." (p. 663, paragraph 4). I agree; in America, soccer has become the best example of a sport that is no longer a sport. It is not visceral. There are no exciting rivalries between American cities, played out by sports competitors who represent their cities. It is barely entertaining. It must change.

The context of this quote from Kamp is an excerpt of his sports column in GQ, a monthly men's lifestyle magazine. He says that in Europe, the soccer culture is…… [Read More]

Passion during the Civil War

The American Civil War occurred between 1861 and 1865 and is largely considered the most destructive conflict in U.S. history, resulting in approximately one million military casualties and an inestimable number of civil victims. Much controversy still surrounds the nature of this conflict, as its determining causes are complex. Contemporary international perception may have placed a progressive, anti-slavery label on the whole affair, yet the basic fact remains that nineteenth century America was an increasingly inhomogeneous country and prone to blatant discrepancy.

This work is focused on providing an analysis of Southern and Northern perspectives from a justifying point-of-view, in order to form an outline of the opposing sides' motives. Both parties were strongly driven by…… [Read More]

O'Laughlin's Statement Claiming That the Psychiatric Establishment

Words: 706 Length: 2 Pages Document Type: Essay Paper #: 68663781

O'Laughlin's statement claiming that the psychiatric establishment is self-interested and caught in a rational bind that we need to understand the human narrative that necessarily underlies all suffering. To me this statement makes a lot of sense since it is very true that the psychiatric establishment is self-interested. This means that the sole interest of the psychiatric establishment is enriching the ones who put up the establishment. They are only interested in themselves and they are in the business of giving treatment to the patients and do not care if the method they are using is approved by the one receiving the treatment or not. The establishment is caught in a rational bind whereby the mode of treatment that is used is fixed and the patients regardless of how young they are forced to go through the rational bound treatment mode. Therefore there is need to understand the human narrative…… [Read More]

brevaya, J. & Mulligan, K. (2011). Effectiveness of state-level vaccination mandates: Evidence from the varicella vaccine. Journal of Health Economics 30(5): 966-76.

Longitudinal data on the use of varicella immunizations was used to determine the real effects o immunization requirements mandated by various governmental entities within the United States. Significant increases in vaccination rates are found to be the result of such mandates within the first year of adoption, peaking within two years of adoption, and with minimal effects on the rate thereafter. pproximately twenty percent of short run increases in immunization adoption is attributed to mandates, and no differences were found in different socioeconomic groups when it comes to adoption rates. Though this research does not deal with exemptions specifically, it provides context and some direct implications for a discussion and examination of such exemptions.…… [Read More]

A seven-year population-based retrospective cohort study of individuals aged five to nineteen years old was used to create a mathematical model of risk associated with measles vaccination, exemption, and infection, and to determine if other patterns could be observed. Exemptors were determined to be thirty-five times more likely to contract measles than those that had been vaccinated, and populations of exemptors tended to be found within certain geographic pockets of close proximity which contributed to outbreak behavior. The model also suggests that a large-scale outbreak was experienced in exemptor populations one year earlier than in the broader population, which has direct implications on the effects of religious exemptions on overall public health and safety.

Siegel, A. & Salmon, D. (2001). Religious and philosophical exemptions from vaccination requirements and lessons learned from conscientious objectors from conscription. Public Health Report 116(4): 289-95.

In addressing both the legal and the practical implications of vaccination mandates and exemptions, the authors assert that states are not actually required to allow religious exemptions for public school entrances. Their findings also suggest that individual educational counseling for parents that object and stringent belief ascertainment by the state can limit the number of exemptions significantly in states that allow them. These recommendations are grounded in commentary on the effects of exemption that is of direct and contextual use to the research at hand.

EEOC Discrimination Claim

Discrimination Complaints: A Case Study

John believes that he has been discriminated against by his employer, a private company. The nature of the alleged discrimination could be related to John's race, color, religion, sex, national origin, age if 40 or older, disability, or genetic information (Equal Employment Opportunity Commission [EEOC], 2010, p. 1; EEOC, n.d.). The Constitutional authority for filing a discrimination claim against an employer comes from a number of different acts, including the Civil ights Act, Age Discrimination in Employment Act, Equal Pay Act, and the ehabilitation Act. The federal agency responsible for regulating and mediating such claims is the Equal Employment Opportunity Commission. Protection against employer retaliation for filing a discrimination claim is also provided under these laws and regulations.

sufficient evidence for its hypothesis or claim?

The paper is clear int hat it provides us with Introduction, body, and conclusion. The theme is simple too: health care providers (the paper tells us) need to respect, acknowledge, and understand the challenges that the 3 religions -- Judaism, Islam, and Shintoism -- can provide to th health care system. The health system needs to know how to satisfy adherents of these religions in order to optimize their medical care.

The paper then goes through a brief description of each religion (in Judaism's case, of Orthodox Jews) particularly as touches on their medical care and cursorily describes how medical practitioners can meet these needs. There are many more points that can be mentioned, particularly in the case of Orthodox Judaism where the profession may be riddled with many more challenges, such as kosher (and food regulation exist with Islam too).

Widdowson's Claim That Television and Film Cannot Produce an Aesthetic Effect

Words: 620 Length: 2 Pages Document Type: Essay Paper #: 43863977

Aesthetics

Widdowson claims that television and film do not fit the definition of "literary" objects. For one, a script for film or television production has no autonomy. As Widdowson points out, "while there is always a script on which the finished product is based, the script is granted little status or autonomy as an object of reading in and for itself" (124). Of course, an interested party can seek out the script for study but scripts are rarely encountered for their literally literary function: as pieces of writing that exist for the sole purpose of being read as texts.

Moreover, Widdowson notes that the finished product in film or television is "always already mediated/interpreted" in order to become a motion picture. In other words, the director, actors, and cinematographers alter the original script in fundamental ways. These fundamental means of altering the original (or, as Widdowson calls it, "originary") product,…… [Read More]

Instructional Effectiveness Many Scholars Claim

Words: 1604 Length: 4 Pages Document Type: Essay Paper #: 43779153

Time to develop and use assessments effectively must be built into the teachers' work week. They are time-consuming, but worthwhile, and should not be administered as an afterthought. The results tell us a great deal about students and ourselves. It will be a challenge to make sure assessments are meaningful and are accorded the time they deserve.

When we think of assessments, we often think about formal assessments, whether they are teacher-created quizzes, chapter tests from a textbook, or standardized tests that compare students across the country. Assessment can, and should, include the informal observations teachers make in their classrooms on a daily basis. Because teachers spend so much time with their students, they are in a good position to see both struggles and progress. It may be one of the easiest ways to see what students need because it is immediate and requires no preparation. We can learn from…… [Read More]

Advertising Claim That Firms Advertise to Manipulate

Words: 599 Length: 2 Pages Document Type: Essay Paper #: 24139444

advertising claim that firms advertise to manipulate people's tastes and defenders argue that advertising provides information. Both are correct, and characterizing these views as "pro advertising" or the reverse is not particularly accurate. Most industries exist in a state of monopolistic competition, and advertising is one of the ways that companies can differentiate themselves from the competition, and through this differentiation companies can exert a greater degree of market control (No author, 2012).

Firms sometimes use advertising as an informational tool, as it provides an opportunity to reveal to consumers the differences between the advertised product and its competitors. Typically, each product within an industry will differ at least slightly with respect to its design and the quality level of the workmanship and other inputs. In addition, firms use other marketing elements such as distribution to help with differentiation. Advertisers often use brands as shorthand for the product or service…… [Read More]

Fiedler's Contingency Theory the Overarching Claim of

Words: 580 Length: 2 Pages Document Type: Essay Paper #: 53820274

Fiedler's Contingency Theory

The overarching claim of Fiedler's contingency theory is that leadership is defined more directly by the situation or context into which a leader is thrust than by the nature of the leader himself. The basic premise is that leaders will define themselves in low-stress and high-stress situations. Ideally, according to Fiedler, a leader will be selected whose traits are compatible with the organization and its personnel or failing that, conditions within the organization may be altered in order to accommodate strengths evidenced by the leader in question.

This is a decidedly provocative model because it represents a departure from leadership theories that stake leadership quality on the individual. Before the contingency theory, leadership has generally been thought of as a personality trait. With Fiedler, this idea is rejected in favor of the notion that any individual can function as an effective leader when placed in a the…… [Read More]

Claim 3 -- Karl vs. ECR Manufacturer

John has a very good product liability claim against the ECR manufacturer.

Possible Defenses

Political Cartoon the Claim of

Words: 321 Length: 1 Pages Document Type: Essay Paper #: 987136



The backing of the warrant includes the drawing of different parachutes. If the artist only drew one parachute then the reader would infer that the stimulus package is monolithic. Instead, the artist portrays the stimulus package as being multifaceted and potentially saving jobs in multiple business sectors. The fear on the skydiver's face and the cry of "Faster! Faster!" are used to back the claim that Americans may be worried for nothing.

Possible rebuttals to the cartoon include the following. First, a reader might note that many of the parachutes appear not to be working or have yet to be deployed. Second, the artist does not show how close to the ground the jumper is. These two facts add doubt as to how effective and efficient the stimulus plan is. Opponents and critics of the existing stimulus plan are directly addressed and will also identify strongly with the skydiver.… [Read More]

Paraphila the Ancient Philosopher Plato Claimed That

Paraphila

The ancient philosopher Plato claimed that all immoral behavior was the result of some disorder in the soul (Gert and Culver, 2009, p. 489). Although very few people now hold this view, deviant sexual behavior is often considered symptomatic of a mental disorder. However, not all deviant behaviors fit the clinical definition. For example, if a heterosexual man becomes aroused by dressing in women's clothing, it is considered by most people to be abnormal behavior. However, his behavior may be ego-syntonic, meaning that the man is not troubled by either the impulses or by acting them out. Such an individual would not seek treatment. He is not a danger to himself or to anyone else and unless there were objections on the part of his wife or significant other, there is no compelling reason, in the man's mind, to manage his impulses or behavior.

O'Connor Anahad June 22 2004 the Claim

O'Connor, Anahad. (June 22, 2004) "The Claim: Too Much Sleep Is Bad for You." The New York Times. Science & Health Section. http://www.nytimes.com/2004/06/22/health/22REAL.html

It's hard to believe, but this article councils the reader that getting more than seven hours of sleep may be hazardous to his or her health. "A 2002 study found that getting more than seven hours of sleep each night was associated with a shorter life span. Several studies since then, including one this year by researchers at Brigham and Women's Hospital in Boston, also found a link," between poor health and getting more than seven hours of sleep a night.

Thus, the article makes vague reference to several studies pointing to such a correlation, but only provides specific information on one particular 2002 study. This "2002 study examined data on more than a million Americans over the age of 30 between 1982 and 1988." The article,…… [Read More]

Forecasts for the future of the advertising industry are looking up, according to the projected statistics compiled for this article. Unlike much of statistical analysis, this article is future looking rather than looking at the past. Because of the raise forecast estimates for 2004 yesterday the improving economy should result in an even more optimistic outlook in his first assessment of 2005.

Robert J. Coen reduced his prediction for ad spending growth in local media across the country, "citing softness in categories like retail and classifieds." But Mr. Coen, senior vice president and forecasting director at Universal McCann in New York, lifted his estimate for the growth of combined national and local ad spending in the United States to 7.3% this year compared with 2003. In December, he had forecast a gain of 6.9% in 2004.

Ad spending is considered to be an early economic predictor of consumer confidence in America. A "7.3% increase would be the largest since 2000, when American ad spending rose 11.3% from 1999." In contrast, advertising spending "fell 6.5% in 2001, the first decline since 1991 and the largest since 1938; it rebounded 2.4% in 2002 and 3.6% last year, and next year, ad spending in the United States should grow an additional 6.5% over 2004." However, for the layperson this article does not chronicle how total advertising revenue is compiled, and how this varies from industry to industry. Also, do not certain types of products advertise more, such as goods with low product differentiation that tend to be consumed by the proportion of the population, such as young people, whom are most apt to try new products and switch product alliances? This calls into question the ability for expenditures on advertising to predict overall economic success in the American economy as a whole.

Comment on Claim That British Industrial Revolution Was as Much

Words: 2049 Length: 6 Pages Document Type: Essay Paper #: 40690381

Industrial evolution: esult of an Agricultural evolution?

The Industrial evolution which began in Great Britain in the eighteenth century, and still continues in certain parts of the world, is considered by some historians to be the most significant transformation in the economic environment of human civilization after the Neolithic evolution. There are a number of reasons that triggered and sustained the transformation of an agriculture-based economy to an industrial-based economy, but perhaps the most significant was the occurrence of an 'Agriculture evolution' in Britain in the century following 1750. In this essay, I shall discuss why this was so, besides describing the following:

The causes and outcome of the Agricultural evolution

Features of the Industrial evolution

The Social Consequences of the Industrial evolution

Karl Marx and Emile Durkhiem's theories about the Industrial evolution

How an Agricultural evolution in Britain triggered the Industrial evolution?

Demonstrating Uniqueness of Christianity

Words: 1967 Length: 7 Pages Document Type: Essay Paper #: 29894430

Christianity claims to be unique and this work in writing will demonstrate the uniqueness in research and show why other religions could not be considered as the way to salvation. The work of J. Hampton Keathley, III discusses the uniqueness of Christianity and states that Christianity is unique "because it stems from the uniqueness of Jesus Christ, the greatest man who ever lived. In Jesus, we have One who has virtually changed every aspect of human life, but sadly, most people are completely oblivious to the reality of how He has so completely impacted the world." (Keathley, 2012)

The uniqueness of Jesus Christ is examined by Keathley from the view of the uniqueness of Christianity as a religion and states of Christianity that "alone of all the beliefs of mankind, be they religious or political or philosophical…" Christianity is the one religion founded upon the bases of "historical acts and…… [Read More]

Still, Gaga has been embraced by a generation of women, some who shun and some who embrace the feminist label. "Lady Gaga idealizes this way of being in the world.

Sexual Harassment and Discrimination Anna

Words: 1016 Length: 3 Pages Document Type: Essay Paper #: 60151713

Given the context and the fact that being a convicted criminal and a sex offender could conceivably make the risk of any type of abuse (whether or not of a sexual nature) foreseeable, that defense is unlikely to succeed. However, generally, the knowledge of one Board member who does not disclose that knowledge to the Board will not be imputed to the rest of the Board. In any case, that issue is unlikely to matter because of the school's liability in negligence even without knowledge.

Question # 3

As previously discussed, the school is likely to be found liable to Anna for Title VII discrimination by virtue of her age because it allowed Forester to create a hostile work environment by failing to discipline either Forester or DuFrane, the other male teacher who made the hostile statement. The school will argue that even under those facts, the severity and extent…… [Read More]

Neo-Confucianism Is a Philosophy Which Was Born TEST1

Toulmin Model and Sherlock Holmes

The Toulmin Model of argumentation asserts that a good argument consists of six parts which intend to develop a practical argument. The first element is the "claim," or the conclusion that the argument must establish. The next part is the "data," or the facts and evidence collected and used to confirm the argument. In order to support the data, general, hypothetical, or logical statements are used, these are called "warrants." A good argument should limit itself to what can be proven and so it requires "qualifiers" which restrict the argument to a point where it can be supported by facts. In order to support the warrants made during the argument, sometimes "backing statements" are used to add credence to the statements made during the argument. These backing statements may not directly support the claim, but should always support the supporting warrants. Finally, since there are…… [Read More]

Jesus as the Way to

Words: 1369 Length: 3 Pages Document Type: Essay Paper #: 63173201

It increasingly seems unlikely that Christ will show up on a white horse to purge the world of sin. If this is necessary to the ideology of salvation, then one might do well to scoff at it. It does not seem to be legitimate to project that Christ will save the world from the evil which is wrecked upon it by humans or by nature. Indeed, it seems remarkably irresponsible for a modern human to merely sit waiting for Christ to save the world rather than take active steps as part of the social community to assure that the world is preserved. (for example, it has been suggested that ush's radical policy in the Middle East is "literally and determinedly drawn, consciously and unconsciously, toward the enactment of such a [endtimes] scenario, as he believes, for God's sake" [Hill] if this were true, it would be a perfect example of…… [Read More]

Words: 1444 Length: 4 Pages Document Type: Essay Paper #: 28758515

Christian

This course changed my concept of what it meant to be a Christian in three fundamental ways, all focused on what it means to me to be a Christian in modern society, rather than on the theological underpinnings of Christianity. This course helped me realize that Christianity is not merely a system of belief, which is how many people conceive of religion. Instead, Christianity must be a combination of action and belief. However, it also made me more committed to some of the fundamental underpinnings of Christian theology, which I had admittedly abandoned in my own desire to equate being a Christian with being a good person and trying to do the right thing. However, reading this book, I came to the realization that I was failing to embrace all of Christianity. Just as it is necessary, but not sufficient, to be a good person in order to honestly…… [Read More]

BP Oil Spill

Strategy and Corporate Governance

The bp oil spill of 2010

British Petroleum (BP) is one of the largest oil exploring companies in the world. It is recognized for its efficient practices. In recent years it has positioned itself as an environmentally responsible company by stressing its commitment to undertaking exploration activities by causing minimum harm to the natural environment. It has also invested in technologies to make drilling under the seabed more secure so that oil spills do not occur. However, these claims were brought into question on April 20, 2012 when a massive explosion and oil spill took place on the Deepwater Horizon oil rig over the Macondo oil well in the U.S. Gulf. There was huge damage to the marine environment and to the livelihood of people living in the coastal communities in Louisiana and other coastal states. The poor response of the company was…… [Read More]

Disparate Impact and Treatment by the Tva

DUNLAP V. TENNESSEE VALLEY AUTHOITY

Dunlap v. TVA

Dunlap v. Tennessee Valley Authority (2008)

Dunlap v. Tennessee Valley Authority (2008)

Explain why the plaintiff's disparate impact claim failed?

A claim of disparate impact implies that the employer (defendant) unintentionally discriminated against the job applicant (plaintiff) (Seiner, 2013, p. 287). Under Title VII, any hiring practice that is fair in form, but through its application is effectively discriminatory, is illegal (Dunlap v. Tennessee Valley Authority, 2008). The protected demographics under Title VII include racial minorities, religious minorities, and women. Mr. Dunlap's status as an African-American fulfills this requirement. In addition, the hiring practice must be unrelated to the open position and inconsistent with business necessity to be successfully challenged under Title VII. In other words, a claim of employment discrimination should provide evidence that the discriminatory practices were unrelated to the job and not required by the business. Mr. Dunlap sued…… [Read More]

Employee Have a Potential FLSA

Words: 680 Length: 2 Pages Document Type: Essay Paper #: 10520523



2. Explain five things employer can do to insure compliance with FLSA.

The most important action that an employer can take to ensure compliance with FLSA is to remain organized and pay attention to detail (Deadrick). Overtime violations have replaced discrimination claims as the number one problem relative to FLSA compliance and accurate and detailed record keeping can alleviate most of these problems. In regard to this record keeping it is essential that human resource departments properly classify each employee's exempt / non-exempt status as to the paying of overtime. The provisions of the FLSA carefully detail which employees are eligible for overtime and which are not. Human resource departments must follow the FLSA language strictly in making this determination.

It is also essential that employers carefully and accurately record the number of hours spent by each employee and that such recording procedure is not subject to manipulation or abuse.…… [Read More]

Skepticism Bertrand Russel and Ludwig Wittgenstein's Personal

Words: 3042 Length: 10 Pages Document Type: Essay Paper #: 81480546

Skepticism

Bertrand Russel and Ludwig ittgenstein's personal and professional relationship is well-known, with Russel having famously sponsored ittgenstein's submission of Tractatus Logic-Philosophicus for PhD credit at Cambridge University. Both philosophers were important early contributors to the theory of logical atomism, and although they would both go on to reject many of the ideas central to logical atomism, their work nevertheless represented an important break from philosophical Idealism and set the stage for the developments of the twentieth century (Hylton 105, 116). However, despite the general agreement between Russel's The Philosophy of Logical Atomism and ittgenstein's Tractatus, the philosophers disagree on the question of skepticism. For Russel, skepticism is an irrefutable position, whereas ittgenstein characteristically describes skepticism as being "palpably senseless" (ittgenstein 187). Fully understanding ittgenstein's meaning requires an analysis of the role of skepticism in both Russel and ittgenstein's work, but ultimately one can say with relative confidence that ittgenstein…… [Read More]

Project Management and Construction Safety

Words: 3017 Length: 11 Pages Document Type: Essay Paper #: 89518528

Health and Safety in Construction Industry

The construction industry is by far the most dangerous one as it takes more lives every year and results in many short- and long-term minor or severe injuries. The UK government regulatory bodies have been playing a significant role in ensuring that proper health and safety procedures are followed. Throughout the last four decades, its role has been impeccable in decreasing fatalities in the construction industry, although the excessive rules and regulations, frequent changes, bureaucratic structure and lack of project management and risk management techniques have dented its efficiency in protecting small construction companies and contractors, resulting in a compensation and claim culture engulfed with individual profiteers such as insurance companies, lawyers and health and safety consultants. These excessive regulations have pushed constructors to adopt some illegal practices in order to decrease cost and probability of claims from injured workers. The risk management and…… [Read More]
