Workers Compensation at the Jul 1 2012 Reinsurance Renewal ...

Rate increases and an apparent decrease in the use of carrier discounting were encouraging signs for an improving market. However, other headwinds remained - depressed investment rates, reserve development, medical trend (including pharmacy) and slow job growth were still major challenges to the industry. The workers compensation line is still struggling with profitability.

Reinsurance renewals in the first two quarters of 2012 indicated slight rate increases for working layer coverages and rate decreases for multi-claimant catastrophe layers. Another common measure for multi-claimant layer pricing is rate on line. Rates on line for multi-claimant catastrophe layers showed a slight increase. The bottom line for multi-claimant catastrophe layers is that reinsurance dollars remained close to expiring but produced rate reductions for clients due to the increased subject bases.

Table 1


Table 2


There are no major changes in workers compensation reinsurance pricing forecasted for multi-claimant catastrophe layers. A market changing event will either come from very large domestic workers compensation event losses or worldwide catastrophe losses exceeding 2011 levels that produce higher rates for other lines of business. Reinsurers will divert capacity from the low rates on line for workers compensation to other opportunities. Such a reduction in capacity may produce a hardening of workers compensation catastrophe rates. In the first half of 2012 there were some changes in reinsurers? attitudes about supporting the rates on line lower than 2 percent for upper layers. The levels of oversubscription for firm orders in the more recent years have continued to reduce.

At current prices, reinsurance market capacity remained ample for a majority of the multi-claimant catastrophe programs.

Working layer reinsurance rates remained dependent on individual ceding company experience. Ceding companies that demonstrated best in class risk selection, ongoing portfolio optimization and superior claims management (with an emphasis on reserving and closure rates) were rewarded with the most competitive reinsurance rates, terms and conditions. Reinsurance market capacity for the working layers was more limited than it was for the multi-claimant catastrophe layers. There has been some recent repositioning of individual working layer reinsurers? pricing and appetites. Further refinements from working layer reinsurers over the next six months should not be unexpected.

There is an expectation that there will be additional requests for single claimant limits greater than USD10 million and continued interest in structured placements to help stabilize calendar results.

Many of the year-end 2011 indications of a changing workers compensation insurance market continued to develop through the first and second quarters of 2012. The trend of increasing primary rates having the largest effect. According to a recent State Advisory forum from the National Council of Compensation Insurance, within the current rating periods there are 27 states with indicated rate increases compared to 10 states with indicated rate decreases. The increased rates and stabilized job losses are showing up in the ceding company subject premiums. Ninety percent or more of the Guy Carpenter clients renewing reinsurance programs in the second quarter forecasted increased subject bases. The average increase was just over 12 percent.

London 2012 diving: China takes gold, USA silver in 3-meter synchronized

London 2012 diving: Wu Minxia and He Zi won the first diving gold medal for China Sunday. Abby Johnston and Kelci Bryant of Team USA finished second.

Wu and her partner He Zi won the first diving gold medal of the London Olympics on Sunday, putting the country on a path toward a possible sweep of the eight medals.

They led throughout the five-dive round and totaled 346.20 points in the 3-meter synchronized event.

"It's kind of if they mess up, then you have an opportunity," American silver medalist Abby Johnston said. "Anything can happen in this sport, so you still have that possibility."

RECOMMENDED: Are you a true Olympic fan? Take the quiz

It was Wu's fifth Olympic medal, leaving her one away from tying countrywoman Guo Jingjing's record of six medals. Guo was China's superstar diver until her retirement 1 1/2 years ago.

Wu has three golds, one silver and one bronze. She could earn another in the individual springboard event, where she has medaled twice before and will compete against He.

"It feels normal," Wu said in Mandarin. "I really don't have that many emotions."

China won seven of eight golds as the host country four years ago in Beijing and swept the golds at last year's world championships in Shanghai.

"I am impressed by them," Johnston said. "I watch their video. That's one of my training methods, just watching them and how they do it."

Johnston and Kelci Bryant finished second with 321.90 points, ending the country's diving medal drought that extended to the 2000 Sydney Games. It was the first-ever Olympic synchro medal for the Americans.

"Our curse is out of the way," said Bryant, who finished fourth in springboard synchro with a different partner in Beijing.

"Abby and I just kicked it off with this event and I think the rest of the team is going to come through," she said. "After 2008, all of us were really close and we needed to fine-tune our training."

Laura Wilkinson's gold on 10-meter platform in Sydney, where she upset the Chinese despite a broken foot, was the last U.S. medal. The Americans were shut out for the first time ever four years later in Athens and again in Beijing.

Senate panel OKs $604 billion defense bill

WASHINGTON (AP) ? A Senate panel has approved a $604 billion defense spending bill that reverses proposed Pentagon cuts in Air Force personnel and equipment.

The Appropriations defense subcommittee approved the bill by voice vote Tuesday. The measure would provide $511 billion for the base budget and $93.3 billion for the war in Afghanistan in the fiscal year beginning Oct. 1.

The bill is nearly $29 billion less than current spending.

The legislation provides $800 million to halt the Air Force's planned cuts.

In its budget proposal, the Pentagon called for a cut of 5,100 from the Air National Guard, 3,900 from active duty and 900 reservists as well as 134 aircraft. That proposal met stiff resistance from the nation's governors and members of Congress.

Airforce Harlem cruises to victory in Ladbrokes.com 750 at Shelbourne Park

Airforce Harlem did not face any trouble whatsoever in dominating the proceedings in the Ladbrokes.com 750, held at Shelbourne Park on Sunday, July 29th.

The black bitch made a wonderful start to put the rest of the pack under tremendous pressure. An excellent beginning helped her establish her supremacy at the third bend.

After getting in command, the daughter of Bit Chill made no mistake, and retained her advantage till the finishing line. The 6-4 favourite covered the area in 42.24 seconds, bagging the top prize of ?400 by half a length.

Petite Suzy made a wonderful finish, but completely failed to challenge the leading bitch. The dark brindle bitch was lucky to seize the runner-up spot, as Golden Graze was behind just by a short head?s distance.

Golden Graze stepped into this event with a lot of expectations, but failed terribly. The fawn bitch won a similar event at Harold?s Cross in early June.

Perpetuating her fine work, she showed another decent performance at the end of last month, when beating Navarone by a short head?s distance to secure the first prize.

The bitch also ran well on her Shelbourne Park debut earlier this month. In a 550 yards race, she managed to grab the second prize despite suffering plenty of mess in earlier stages of the race.

After so many good shows, the daughter of Crash was expected to fire, but nothing good came from her side. Petite Suzy, on the other hand, unexpectedly secured the second prize, collecting plenty of praise.

Benro Sparky?s misery continued at the top level. Stepping up to the open class put him under a lot of pressure and as a result, the black dog remained unsuccessful in finishing among top-3.

Nevertheless, no one can take the credit away from her, as she beat the likes of White Soks Roks and Totos Star, who were carrying a lot higher odds.

Airforce Harlem?s connections would have been very happy with their bitch?s classy act. After two unlucky rides, she was under a lot of pressure, but responded well on Saturday night.

A comprehensive success would have given her plenty of confidence, and it will be interesting to see how she carries forward the good work to produce more good results in the coming days.

Blown away with DNA | The Legal Genealogist

Stepping out of the routine

You never know, when you start down the path of genetic genealogy and DNA testing, what to expect.

But one thing came clear to me this past week: it?s the very fact that you never know what to expect that makes the journey so worthwhile.

Like many folks who?ve gotten relatives to agree to be DNA-tested, I?m the one who handles the results on a number of tests, these days mostly the Family Finder autosomal DNA tests at Family Tree DNA. Those are the tests that work across genders, that help you identify cousins ? often distant cousins ? with pretty good reliability.

The tests are a little frustrating, since you usually don?t share a surname with people that you match. Though the test is really good at telling you you?re related to a match, it?s not so good at predicting just how closely you?re related ? and that means a lot of chasing possible common-ancestor rabbits that disappear down into genealogical black holes.

By now, I have a system down to a routine. When I check in at Family Tree DNA and see that any of my relatives has a new match, I methodically go through the results page for each person, download a spreadsheet-compatible file of the new matches, and add them to a master list where I can sort them and see which matches might be worth pursuing soonest.

Folks who match more than one member of my family get priority, and folks who match more than one of us at the predicted level of fourth cousin or closer get the highest priority within that priority group. So it was a matter of routine last week, after new results became available between the 19th and 21st of July, to do that match-up and send out my ?New results from the Family Finder DNA test show?? introductory emails.

You never know what to expect when you send out those emails. You could get lucky. Sometimes, a recipient responds quickly and with information that can help narrow the search for a common ancestor down to one line or at least to one geographic area and one time frame. You could end up with a total loss. Sometimes, nobody responds, and you?re left to wonder if your emails ended up getting lost in the ether somewhere.

And then again you could get a gut-wrencher. Something that ends up turning your whole attitude about genetic genealogy and why you?re doing what you?re doing upside down.

So it was without any preconceived notions of what might happen when, this past week, I logged in, saw that there were new results, grabbed the new matches and sorted them into my overall list. And up popped Patricia Colleen Dukeman all over my results. She?s a projected third cousin to my uncle David, a projected fourth cousin to me, a projected third cousin to David?s and my cousin Dick on our Cottrell side, and even a projected third cousin to another cousin on our Robertson side.

The next step, of course, is to take a look at Family Tree DNA?s chromosome browser tool to see if there are any obvious patterns. As I explained back in January in ?A relative match? or maybe not,? autosomal DNA can be tricky: the results can start out looking like there?s an obvious multi-person family link but the link can easily fall apart when you look more closely.

It quickly became apparent that the match to the cousin on the Robertson side was a solo match ? likely on that cousin?s paternal line that we don?t share. But the match on our Cottrell side looks like a strong one. Some pretty big chunks that we all share on Chromosome 6. So I shot off my usual email explaining what I thought the results might show and ending with my usual ?Hope to hear from you soon? sign-off.

Nothing could have prepared me for the emotional wallop of the response. Only about 10 hours after I sent that message, my computer pinged to let me know an email had arrived. It was from this match, who?s called Trish.

?Thank you for sending me the information,? she began. ?I am just beginning this journey. I am adopted.?

Now this isn?t the first email I?ve gotten from a Family Finder match who is an adoptee. But this one was different. Oh so different. It isn?t just the fact that Trish is the closest match I?ve had who is an adoptee that got me. And it isn?t even the odd coincidence that we were born in the same city.

No, what got to me ? what blew me away ? was the two sentences that followed her introduction of herself in her email.

?You are the first person other than my children that I have ever communicated with that I am related to in some way,? she wrote. ?You have no idea how much that means to me.?

She?s right. I don?t have any idea. I can?t.

I grew up in a thoroughly dysfunctional but intact home. I knew who my parents were and their parents and their parents. I grew up knowing my maternal grandparents, aunts, uncles, and roughly kazillion cousins. I can?t begin to imagine what it would be like not to know the most basic facts about my own heritage. Not to be able to self-identify as a first generation American of a German-born father. Not to know that I was the child of a Texas-born mother, with Texas-born grandparents and great grandparents.

Trish has been battling for years to find the truth about her own roots. When I asked her for permission to share her email here and offered to leave out her last name, she said that wasn?t necessary; she was used to being publicly known as an adoptee from her legal battle to open Colorado?s adoption records.

We?re working hard to see if my results, and David?s, and Dick?s, can help Trish lighten up some of the murk that clouds her family history. We may not succeed, but we?re sure going to try. In the meantime, she?s gained, oh, about a kazillion cousins, even if at the third and fourth cousin level, we?ve gained Trish and her kids, and I personally have gained a much much deeper appreciation for the family rock on which my ancestors have allowed me to stand than I have ever had before.

And if I never, ever, get one more thing out of all the DNA testing I?ve done and that I?ve paid for than I gained this past week, I will still count every penny as having been well spent.

Because you never know, when you start down the path of genetic genealogy and DNA testing, what to expect.

Hiring, Rental and Buying Trade Event Exhibits | Szczecin miasto z ...


A trade show display could represent a substantial expense for those seeking this powerful marketing and sales strategy. There are a number of solutions on the marketplace, but which path you take will depend on a number of elements peculiar to your own company situation.We?ll take a very brief go through the three avenues ready to accept you with renting, leasing and purchasing trade show equipment.Buying the DisplayOutright purchase means you own the property and this lowers your ongoing operating costs when you pay cash. The purchase will be taken to your balance sheet in your reports and tax allowable depreciation will be deducted from your taxable earnings for the company purchase given on the existence of the display.Buying a display allows you to completely customize the display to your own needs and you are always certain of its availability when you need it ? in the end, you own it! You?re able to include your trade show marketing together with your brand marketing to the fullest extent and there are no limitations on where and when it can be used.Buying a display will probably be the cheapest and most tax successful approach to finding a show display in the long term.Leasing the DisplayAn option to outright purchase would be to arrange funding on the display and to lease the equipment (instead of letting it ).This will lower your upfront money cost of acquiring the display, and at the same time you can enjoy sole and unique use while still having a fully personalized display. For all practical purposes you possess it fully until the final financing fee whereupon you?ll often get outright ownership or the equipment will be delivered depending on the lease terms.The cost of the asset may or may not be taken to the balance sheet and depreciated depending on the kind of lease contract. Usually, it is common for a rental arrangement to be framed to allow this and so you obtain the tax relief on the depreciated amounts taken to business profits. In addition, the finance element of the lease charges are taken immediately to the gain and loss account to be offset as an expense in a similar way to any interest paid on a mortgage agreement.This method will increase Return on Investment in the short to medium term for many consumers, and may also give probably the most cost effective method of acquiring property provided the tax advantages available.Renting the DisplayIt is achievable to hire a trade show display, however you will be constrained in terms of customization and supply. This is definitely an ideal arrangement to appear at where you are either a new entrant to the trade show market, or are looking at tinkering with your trade show structure or need additional but short-term display equipment.The full cost of hiring the display will be taken against your business earnings for tax purposes and for short-term use this will provide the maximum ROI available.

"The J.D. Power and Associates APEAL study simply indicates how much your customers like their vehicles? design, performance and features, and clearly our customers are quite smitten," says Andy Goss, President of Jaguar Land Rover North America, LLC. "Jaguar Land Rover is dedicated, as a premium automotive company, to providing the customers of both our brands with quality vehicles that deliver extraordinary performance, innovative technology, and desirable styling."

Jaguar is the second most improved nameplate. The gain is primarily driven by the Jaguar XJ with 901 points - one of only three models in the industry to score above 900. The Jaguar brand was also the most improved, and tied for 2nd?highest in the industry, in the J.D. Power and Associates 2012 Initial Quality Study (IQS).

Land Rover placed sixth overall in the industry in a tie, showing that its line up of luxury SUVs is well regarded by its customers. Leading the Land Rover lineup is the new Range Rover Evoque, which in its first year in the survey scored higher than all other Entry Premium Crossover SUVs. According to the survey, customers of the award-receiving Range Rover Evoque most appreciate its design and fuel economy, compared to its segment.? The Range Rover Evoque combines class-leading performance with dynamic and agile handling across all terrains. This is the 102nd?global award for the Range Rover Evoque.

The J.D. Power and Associates APEAL study examines how gratifying a new vehicle is to own and drive based on owner evaluations of more than 80 vehicle attributes. The study's unique approach to measuring owner satisfaction and how much a customer likes or dislikes virtually every aspect of their new vehicle provides a powerful tool to manufacturers to influence future product development.

The 2012 APEAL study is based on responses gathered between February 2012 and May 2012 from more than 74,000 purchasers and lessees of new 2012 model-year cars and trucks who were surveyed after the first 90 days of ownership.

Tweet This Roofs are possibly the most important part of a home and often the most ignored one. In addition, the most important job that it plays is of providing protection to the building and its residents. But at the same time it is the most neglected area of the house because as heard often "out of sight-out of mind", the roof is also generally out of sight. One would not want to go over the roof and examine it for no reason. That's why, until and unless it starts leaking, no one pays any attention to the roof or its maintenance.

EPDM rubber is a very flexible and long-lasting material that has a huge range of different purposes and applications. EPDM stands for Ethylene Propylene Diene M, in which the M refers to a class of rubbers that contain a saturated chain of the polymethylene type. What that means in simple terms is that EPDM rubber has fantastic heat, ozone, and weather resistance. It is also a great electrical insulator.

EPDM sheeting is often used as a liner for back yard water ponds and other man-made water features. The rubber does not leach chemicals, and so would not harm any fish living in these ponds. EPDM roofing material is one of the most common applications of this rubber product, although it can be used in garden hoses, washers, belts, electrical insulation, seals and speaker cone surrounds.

EPDM rubber is also often the main substance used in the weather seals of vehicles, such as door seals, window seals, and hood seals. This is due to the great weatherproof properties of this type of rubber.

Roof is the greatest source of protection from any type of whether condition for the world. But they have to spend more for its repairing and remodeling almost every year especially after rainy and summer season. Roof Leaks are mainly the cause of improper installation and ineffective flashing of roofs at the time of its construction. Roof Leak may occur about any place of the roof buy they found more near the chimney, step, apron, pipes, and points at which two roofs meets. Roof leaks may also occur when your roof shingles installed improperly. If you ignore it for a long time, then they may become a cause of major damage for of the roof.

It is important to ensure that your roof is equipped with building materials that are appropriate to the weather conditions of the area that you live in. Choosing cheap, low-quality materials that do not handle well in certain weather conditions can prove to be a very expensive mistake. This type of mistake especially at the time of construction leads to bear heavy cost of repairing near about each year or in every season. You can minimize the problem by selecting the material that is more suitable and having great resistance for all type of weather condition like EPDM and liquid rubber designed especially for it. Elastomeric roof coatings and liquid rubber are also designed for roof leak due to draining water in rain; provide great resistance for water in rainy season. Similarly epdm is the best product for summer sun that can easily control the temperature by providing complete protection to the roof from sunlight.

The Self Insurance Security Fund for Workers' Compensation ...


The Self Insurance Security Fund has immediate ability once notified that they are responsible to use the employers security deposit for being self insured in order to pay the compensation benefits. Along with the responsibility to pay the compensation, the SISF also gains full rights to act as the insurer and has the same rights as the employer when it comes to dealing with claims. The SISF also has the right to obtain reimbursement for the payments they have made from either the company or any person that should be held accountable for the inability to provide insurance for the injured worker. If qualified, the employer can also elect to use an alternative security system through the SISF called the alternative composite deposit program, which allows them to insure as a collective whole instead of as individuals.

3 Benefits of Sustainable Roofing for Your Kansas City Home | MB ...

One of the many home improvement trends seeing massive support right now is sustainable roofing. But what is it exactly and how can your home benefit from it?

Sustainable roofing is a roof system designed, constructed, and even demolished with emphasis on using natural resources and preserving the environment. This means choosing environment-friendly roofing materials, a safe installation process, and recycling discarded roofing materials.

If you are considering re-roofing your home, you might want to look at sustainable residential roofing for your Kansas City home. Aside from doing the environment a lot of good, you could also enjoy the following benefits:

  • Durable roofing for your home
    Sustainable roof installation takes into account the local environment and the effects it can have on your roof. Sustainable roofing generally uses fiberglass-reinforced shingles for improved durability. Fiberglass shingles also last longer than those reinforced only with felt. For example, Owens Corning fiberglass shingles have highest wind ratings available in the asphalt shingle industry at 110mph for (ASTM D 3161, Class F) and 150mph for (ASTM D 7158, Class H).
  • Increased market value for your property
    Many homebuyers today are looking for environment-friendly homes. With this increased demand for houses that are not only attractive but also good for the environment, you could be looking at an increase in market value for your property. ?You can talk to a professional local realtor to find out the demand for a property with sustainable roofing for more information. Bonus: The cost of sustainable roofing is on par with regular roofs, so you?re really not spending extra for this advantage.
  • More savings due to improved energy efficiency
    Sustainable roofing reduces your carbon footprint since its production?doesn?t?use as much fuel as needed for regular shingles. But more than this, sustainable roofing helps you reduce the amount of energy you use in heating and cooling your home. Most sustainable roofing materials are Energy Star-certified; you could even get rebates from utility companies, insurance companies, and the IRS for having an energy-efficient roof.

These are just some of the benefits of sustainable roofing for residences in Kansas City. For more information, call us today to talk to one of our expert roofers.

This Just Pinned: Aloe vera ice cubes, and a handy bagging tool ...

Today?s Pinterest finds include speedy DIY sunburn relief and a product designed to simplify your next shopping trip.

Aloe vera ice cubes -? My own childhood was peppered with gangly, overgrown, window sill aloe plants. For the women who reared me, a freshly-plucked leaf with aloe gel dripping from its wound was the go-to remedy for minor cuts and scrapes.

But applying this natural salve directly from those fleshy fronds can be messy and wasteful. So here?s an innovative idea shared in various crafting blogs and recently re-pinned by Real Simple magazine.

Transform aloe vera ointment into on-the-go sunburn relief by using an ice cube tray to freeze individual portions of it. Just make sure you?re freezing fresh, natural aloe, not a lotion byproduct, which may not freeze at all. If you don?t have an aloe plant on hand, check out the all-natural section of a nearby grocery store. Once you have that gel, mix a little water into the potion to ensure frozen-solid cubes? what could be more refreshing to the skin during a hot day in the sun?

The "one grip" is $5 (plus tax and shipping) at infmetry.com

?One Trip Grip Grocery Bag Holder? -? From the ?why didn?t I think of that?? file comes a shopping solution meant to undercut the hand and finger strain that comes from transporting too many totes. These ?One Trip Grip? bag holders keep all shopping bag handles together to avoid the need to, say, run in and out of the house after stocking up at the grocery store. They cost $5 at infmetry.com, a retail site that aims to showcase products rooted in great ideas.

Bloggers Unite for Dog Rescue ? Minnesota Sheltie Rescue ? No ...

Today, Monday, July 23rd I am participating in an event called Bloggers Unite for Dog Rescue. We are asking all dog bloggers to participate in a special online global event designed to bring attention to dog rescues. BTC4animals.com is proud to partner with Blog Catalog, Dog Rescue Success and YOU to harness a global online community to help save the lives of dogs in need.

Across this country there are dog? rescues who, with very little funding, and a small dedicated group of volunteers, commit to fostering, training, promoting, vetting and caring for dogs that might otherwise be abandoned, abused or killed. They have a thankless job. One that requires hours and hours of work, and lots of time spent raising funds, so they can manage the difficult of job of saving dogs? lives and finding them loving homes.

If you?ve never worked with or supported a dog rescue before you may not know much about the work they do.

So let me tell you a little more about one particular dog rescue, one I volunteer for and support ? Minnesota Sheltie Rescue (MNSR).

MNSR is a 501(c) tax-exempt, non-profit organization. They are an all-volunteer foster-based rescue organization that houses all of its dogs in foster homes until they find their forever homes. Since their founding in 2003, they have found homes for almost 500 Shelties in need.

MNSR not only works with dogs in their care, but also with other rescues and shelters to help dogs in need. They help individuals who may be thinking about surrendering their dog by providing them with resources and information that may help them work through an issue or problem, or if this is no longer an option, they work with the owner to help their dog make a smooth transition to a foster home and eventually to their new forever home.

Below is a list of just some of the things Minnesota Sheltie Rescue (MNSR) does on a regular basis. As you read through the list, keep in mind that this is an all-volunteer dog rescue organization, operating with limited funds.

What does MNSR do?

  • Rescues dogs from a wide variety of places and circumstances ? owner surrender, shelters, puppy mills, etc.
  • Makes every dog a top priority by dedicating the time, money and care needed to have the best opportunity to find a forever home.
  • Provides medical care for every dog it takes into its care. This includes dental extractions, anti-anxiety meds, heartworm preventative, and Frontline.
  • Conducts home visits with every potential foster home and adoptive family.
  • Offers shy Sheltie training classes for its foster dogs and foster parents. Classes are led by a positive reinforcement dog trainer.
  • Provides support, guidance and assistance to foster parents, adoptive families and strangers who?s Sheltie is missing or lost.
  • Shares adoption listings for Shelties in other states, or with other rescues, who are in need of a home
  • Provides support and guidance to people looking to rehome their pets but who are not looking to surrender to MNSR.
  • Shares resources and tips on everything from working with a shy or fearful dog to dealing with thunderstorm or fireworks phobia to pet food recalls to helping you keep your pet.
  • Provides ongoing support to adoptive families as they get to know their dog.
  • Shares opportunities to attend training seminars and events for volunteers to learn more about helping dogs.
  • Promotes training opportunities available for all Sheltie owners.

You might be thinking that this is a pretty comprehensive list. I agree.

MNSR is a very dedicated dog rescue organization who does a lot to help dogs and their owners. Although I think they are exceptional, I know there are other dog rescues out there doing similar things. That?s why it?s so important to support them whenever you can.

How can you help support dog rescues like MNSR?

  • Adopt, don?t shop. Want a particular breed? There are a lot of dog rescues, like MNSR, who specialize in specific breeds.
  • Foster a dog. Every dog that makes it to a foster home is one less dog that will be euthanized. Not sure you can give them up? Ask to participate in a foster-to-adopt program for a local dog rescue.
  • Donate time, money or supplies. Dog rescues are often operating on a small budget. Any support you can provide will be gratefully accepted. Don?t have a dog rescue in mind? Donate to MNSR.
  • Spay and neuter. The truth is that until we end the supply of dogs entering our shelters, we will never stop killing them. Sharing the miracle of birth with your kids might be cool, but chances are one of those puppies will end up in a shelter and be killed because there just isn?t any room for them.
  • Encourage your friends and family to adopt.
  • Donate your time ? Last week, I wrote a post about how you can help if you can?t foster (?I could never foster a dog or cat??). There are a wide variety of ways you can help a dog rescue.
  • Tell others. Post this to Facebook and Twitter: SPREAD THE WORD ? BLOGGERS UNITE FOR DOG RESCUE ? Promote dog adoption on July 23rd! http://bit.ly/pO7dZp #BtC4A

Dog rescues make a difference. Please support them, and the work they do, whenever you can.

Lacie is a beautiful, loving young sheltie mix girl who will make a wonderful companion for that special someone. Through no fault of hers, she?s been shuffled around quite a bit in her young life. This little girl is a sweetie.
Lacie is 3 years old and will need to be on a diet and exercise regimen, but she is really, really sweet!

I am Winston. I am told that I am just the cutest little thing to come along in a long time. I am now learning to deal with two very bossy diva foster sisters (who are Shelties like me) and some cats, but we all get along really well. It would be more fun, however, if the cats would run every now and again ? oh a good chase would be so great!
Winston is 8 years old and a mellow fellow most of the time, but he would love a friend who would love to play with him!

Mattie is a beautiful bi-black Sheltie/Eskie, and she just loves to be the princess. She loves playtime in the yard and has quite a few favorite stuffies that she carries outside even to go potty. Mattie is a very affectionate little girl.
And, Mattie has passed the Canine Good Citizen test!
Mattie is 7 years old and will need someone who can feed her on scheduled times and take her for walks.
She is available for adoption through Minnesota Sheltie Rescue

Ian is a very cute little guy who has been busy learning many new skills in his foster home. Ian lived all his life in a breeding facility where he had little interaction with people. He is looking for a very special home that understands the needs of shy dogs who are just beginning to learn how to interact with people, and where he will have a doggie friend.
Ian is 6 years and about ~13-15 lbs. He is absolutely gorgeous, but will need someone special who understands working with shy dogs. He is available for adoption through MInnesota Sheltie Rescue http://www.mnsheltierescue.org/
TEMPERAMENT: Ian is very shy with people because he was not socialized prior to coming into rescue. He is not used to being petted, and does not feel comfortable approaching people yet.

Debt crisis: live

Quote With Greece we have reached the end of the road. There must not be any further aid. A country which does not have the will to fulfil the conditions, or is not able to do so, must get a chance outside the euro.

Mr Dobrindt has long called for Greece to exit the euro.

09.32 The Athens Stock Exchange has fallen by 2.7pc this morning. Simon Denham at Capital Spreads comments:

Quote This realisation that you are probably better off simply putting the money on a large bonfire as opposed to giving it to the Greek government is a signal that there is little faith in country being able to meet its debt target by 2020. With the IMF saying enough is enough the EU is going to have to fill the hole at a time when its resources are already being stretched to the limit by Spain requesting ?100 billion only recently. Needless to say the yields on the country?s ten year bond spiked to a record high causing a sell off of all risk assets and in particular a pummelling for the single currency.

A major worry now of course is whether Italy will be next as its bond yields continue to slide down their slippery slope. This is such an unknown as far as the amount of funds the country would need in respect of a bailout as its crippling debts and the size of its economy dwarf those of the periphery. Italy is a G6 country with liabilities that stretch across the globe.

09.20 Let's not forget where this all started - in Greece. Yesterday, German Vice Chancellor Philipp Roesler repeated the EU ultimatum to the debt-laden country: no austerity = no bail-out cash.

In remarkably frank language, Mr Roesler said he was "very sceptical" that European leaders would be able to save Greece. He told German broadcaster ARD:

Quote What?s emerging is that Greece will probably not be able to fulfil its conditions, [...] What is clear: if Greece doesn?t fulfil those conditions, then there can be no more payments.

09.16 The protests in Spain have attracted high profile support. Here's actor Javier Bardem joining protests last Thursday. The No Country for Old Men star marched under a banner which read, "Culture is not a luxury".

Spanish actor Javier Bardem and his brother Carlos applaud as they attend a protest against government austerity measures in Madrid last week. The placard reads, "Our cuts will be with a guillotine" (Photo: Reuters).

09.06 Conservative MP John Redwood offers his two-pence on the Spanish crisis in a blog this morning:

QuoteLast week the whole argument over keeping the Spanish state safe from banking excess was overwhelmed by the news that Valencia needs help. Catalonia, Murcia and others may also in due course want similar assistance. The Spanish provinces have devolved responsibility for big spending areas like health and education as well as more traditional devolved matters in a European federal EU member. As a result the federal government?s austerity packages, demanded by the Euro bosses, of necessity demand substantial cuts in regional spending as well as in federal government spending. There is little love lost between the main regions and the centre. There is even less when the national government demands cuts. Some of the cuts are proving too painful or difficult. As a result the regions are now asking for some relaxation of the discipline, and at the same time saying they need help from central government to borrow the money they need.

09.02 Spain approved measures this month allowing larger shops to open for 25pc longer a week. This from Bloomberg:

QuoteThe new rules may encourage the outlets to sell during the traditional afternoon snooze from 2pm to 4pm, and on an additional two Sundays or holidays a year for a total of ten.

?When everything was fine, nobody complained, but now that things have gone awry, then it?s another story,? said Carmen Cardeno, director general for domestic commerce at the nation?s economy ministry, which created the rules. ?We need to evolve and be more flexible.?

08.59 Another victim of the debt crisis has emerged this morning:

08.45 On Friday, Valencia became the first Spanish region to seek a bail-out from a new fund setup by the Spanish central government, which is itself under heavy financial strain.

Later that evening, El Pais reported that six more regions had joined the bail-out queue - Catalonia, Castilla-La Mancha, Baleares, Murcia, the Canary Islands and Andalusia.

On Sunday, the head of the local government in Murcia said in an interview that the region would be the second to make a formal request for aid.

Ramon Luis Valcarcel said that he hoped that the cash injection would be available for September.

This morning, business daily El Confidencial reports that Catalonia will request ?3.5bn from the bail-out pot.

And here we are today...

08.36 After falling almost 6pc on Friday, the IBEX 35 in Madrid fell by 3pc this morning to 6,062.30, while the FTSE Mib in Milan has fallen 2.6pc to 12,728.31. London's benchmark FTSE 100 index edged down 1.3pc to 5,578.77.

The yield on 10-year Spanish government bonds hit 7.53pc this morning - a euro-era high.

Meanwhile, for the first time since the beginning of 2009, it now costs Italy more to borrow than it does Ireland (6.348pc v 6.2797pc).

08.31 Stock markets have tumbled this morning on the back of reports over the weekend that several Spanish regions are lining up with their begging bowls to tap a special ?18bn funding pot designed to help struggling regions meet commitments.

08.30 Good morning and welcome back to our live coverage of the European debt crisis.
