RMS has expanded its latest suite of RMS climate change models to enable customers to strategically assess the short- and long-term impacts of climate change across a wider range of perils and regions.

RMS climate change models address the growing need for climate change analysis in operational underwriting and portfolio management activities.

The growing demands of regulatory requirements such as those of the Task Force on Climate-Related Financial Disclosures (TCFD) and the Network for Greening the Financial System (NGFS).

These new RMS climate change models will complement the existing suite launched in 2021, including the Europe Flood, Europe Windstorm and North Atlantic Hurricane climate change models.

Using RMS models, customers will be able to simulate the effects of climate change on four greenhouse gas concentration trajectories (known as Representative Concentration Pathways or RCPs) at any time between 2020 and 2100.

Julie Serakos, Senior Vice President, Model Product Management, RMS, said, “The effects of climate change so far are already built into RMS models, including all major peril models.

“What is becoming increasingly important for companies is the ability to anticipate the potential impacts of climate change, across portfolios, risks and liabilities. There is also a growing need to capture sensitivity around the potential impacts of historic climate change, for example in perils where consensus on this is limited.

“Only with detailed, consistent and reliable information about future climate change risks are companies and leaders able to make informed long-term strategic decisions to better reflect their business interests. , stakeholders and regulators.

“As disasters with a climate-related footprint, such as floods, wildfires and hurricanes, increase in incidence and severity, it is also clear that this is a problem not only for the future, but which needs to be addressed strategically today, with the best tools available to give the clearest insights.

Paul Wilkinson, Head of Aggregation and Risk Strategy at Canopius, said: “The RMS models allow adjustment of short and long term time horizons, combined with the full flexibility and range of RCP scenarios ( Representative Concentration Pathway) of the IPCC.

“Climate change presents one of the most significant risks for the re/insurance industry. It is important to us to incorporate the latest scientific knowledge relating to climate change into our risk analyzes in a way that can be tailored to our needs and fully integrated into key business operations, such as portfolio management, underwriting short term and business planning. ”

SXSW EDU kicks off with COVID-19 safety measures https://gillansinn.com/sxsw-edu-kicks-off-with-covid-19-safety-measures/ Tue, 08 Mar 2022 03:30:52 +0000 https://gillansinn.com/sxsw-edu-kicks-off-with-covid-19-safety-measures/ AUSTIN (KXAN) — The first round of events kicked off Monday for South By Southwest EDU, ahead of the main conference and festival kicking off on Thursday.

AUSTIN (KXAN) — The first round of events kicked off Monday for South By Southwest EDU, ahead of the main conference and festival kicking off on Thursday.

Public safety plans have changed a bit since the last in-person festival in 2019. Austin Police Chief Joseph Chacon said all officers now have Narcan, which is used to treat overdoses, and the department is partnering with EMS to form more rescue task forces to get through crowds faster.

But it’s not just public safety that organizers are concerned about, as is COVID-19, and that’s why they said they were keeping their Stage 5 COVID-19 rules, despite the passage of the Austin area in Stage 2.

“Even if our situation in Austin improves, we will stay the course with the plans we have made as if we were going to a Stage 5 event,” said Tami Richter, vice president of event operations. “We know that these mitigation measures will cover all levels of risk.”

This means that SXSW attendees must mask up indoors in conference and exhibit spaces, as well as at City of Austin facilities. They are also required to provide proof of COVID-19 vaccination or a negative COVID-19 test within 72 hours of entry before they can obtain their credentials.

Richter said staff cross-check documentation with IDs to make sure they match.

They also partner with CLEAR Health Pass, an app used by other events and even airlines.

“It’s a very quick upload of your vaccination card and verification, and a very easy way to verify when you walk into any location,” Richter said.

Organizers are also partnering with Nomi Health to offer free on-site COVID-19 testing.

“If you get your antigen test, it’ll come back in an hour, so you can take your antigen test, and as soon as you get your results, you can go right next door and pick up your diploma,” Richter explained.

SXSW guidelines are similar to those in effect for Mardi Gras in New Orleans for the past few weeks – except attendees there also needed proof of vaccination or a negative test to enter bars , restaurants and other event venues in New Orleans, according to the city’s website.

So far, according to the Louisiana Health Department dashboard, there hasn’t been a major spike in COVID cases.

Currently, there is no such proof requirement in Austin for SXSW events at bars, restaurants or event venues. But the organizers encourage masking in all spaces.

“We really want to keep the numbers down, we want to protect our community, we want to protect those that we invite here to Austin and also protect those that they’re going to return to as well after the event is over. “, Richter said.

She said registrations have increased every week for the past two weeks.

SXSW EDU attendee Sage Salvo said at one point he was concerned about COVID-19 but ultimately decided to come.

“A) I got vaccinated, then B) I’m from Washington, DC, and they lifted a lot of warrants, responding to a decrease in cases,” Salvo said.

He demonstrates his new technology at the event.

“We have an app that incorporates the music kids listen to into their learning, reading, and writing plan,” Salvo said.

He is looking forward to his fourth SXSW.

“Networking. Meeting new people, new partnerships, new investors and new clients,” Salvo said.

While he expects more people to filter through the event later this week, he feels comfortable with current COVID safety measures.

By Nick Gallo | Broadcast Reporter and Digital Editor | okcthunder.com

The partnership has started with a question.

“Is there anything we can do to really impact the criminal justice system in Oklahoma City?

Ayana Lawson, Thunder’s vice president of community and lifestyle services, recalled that this issue surfaced within the organization in the summer of 2020, with the conversation about societal injustice coming to a head in the nationwide and in Oklahoma City.

The Thunder aimed not only to listen or talk, but also to act. It was clear that breaking cycles of incarceration was a key task in addressing citizens’ concerns about inequality in the justice system. After a lot of research and discussions between key figures in basketball operations and community engagement, the Thunder identified the Department of Education and Employment (TEEM) as an ideal community partner.

TEEM is a non-profit organization that works in Oklahoma County to provide education, personal development, and job readiness training, among other services, to those beginning their sentence or paying off their debt. towards society. TEEM’s goal is that those who serve time in the criminal justice system never do so again – breaking that aforementioned cycle of incarceration, which not only affects this singular individual, but impacts future generations. in the family tree.

“When we talk about cycles of incarceration or poverty, we’re not just talking about someone who’s been impacted by the system. We’re talking about generational cycles.”

— Brittney Berling, TEEM Director of Development

TEEM’s focus extends to four crucial areas – a pre-trial program to help those in Oklahoma County jails who cannot pay bail and must return to their families, a community sentencing run by Oklahoma County but with support from TEEM, a veterans program to help our nation’s heroes receive the resources they deserve and a reintegration program for those who are reintegrated into society during this year.

For many who come out of the criminal justice system, finding work is an almost impossible hurdle due to the stigma of hiring. Dozens of other negative outcomes and additional problems stem from a lack of employment, including basic needs like food, shelter, transportation, and even the loss of family or community ties. That’s why on January 25, the Thunder will host the Fair Chance Employment Expo at the Paycom Center – an event where 30-40 companies have been invited to learn more about how they can be an inclusive employer for those looking to re-enter. society positively by getting a job.

The Fair Chance Employment Expo is not a flashy startup event. Instead, it’s the culmination of a nearly 18-month relationship between the Thunder and TEEM. Instead of just ticking a box with a big, team-wide project that would be sure to grab headlines and rack up views on social media, the Thunder aimed for a more holistic approach.

“It was huge for us. This partnership has impacted our organization at every level,” said TEEM Director of Development Brittney Berling.

Thunder doctors and training staff have created resource guides that could be used in halfway houses and other transitional settings to help TEEM participants with exercise and physical health. Thunder Chiefs have created a cookbook designed for those who shop from a pantry or on a strict grocery budget. Thunder communications staff helped create online profiles for TEEM and helped improve the organization’s website and promotional materials, and this, combined with advice from Thunder’s data science department, has obtained a financial subsidy to hire a new member of staff.

Thunder’s coaching staff engaged TEEM participants in a mentorship program, while Thunder director of safety Paul Huggins and vice president of human and player performance Donnie Strack served as guest speakers invited to a women’s group. Thunder ringleader Shai Gilgeous-Alexander participated in the annual toy drive for the children of TEEM participants, and even surprised them with a Christmas call on Zoom.

In July 2021, there was a rare opportunity for a Department of Corrections facility to open its doors for a day to collaborate with the Thunder and TEEM. Through the Roc the Bloc Block Party at the Oklahoma Re-Entry and Opportunity Center (OROC), incarcerated women were able to reunite with their families and children in a prosocial and family event. OROC is often the last stop for inmates before their release, so reuniting with families can be emotional, shocking or difficult. However, with a bounce house, Rumble, Thunder Drummers and other Thunder artists uplifting the environment, the reunion on this summer’s day was even sweeter and happier.

Perhaps the biggest impact of the Thunder and TEEM collaboration came in the form of a book swap program called Read to Connect, which has been one of the most popular engagements ever with TEEM. . In partnership with the Thunder Rolling Book Bus, presented by American Fidelity, the Thunder and TEEM provided duplicate copies of children’s books and, by connecting to DOC facilities, provide a copy of a book to an incarcerated parent and another copy to their child. So the family can read the book together over the phone and keep in touch between visits. This initiative helps spark conversation, increases literacy and strengthens family relationships.

“They may not be in person together, but they can share this story together,” Berling said. “It was wonderful.”

The program was so popular that the Thunder’s commitment jumped to £100 a month. The Thunder selects different sets of books each month, giving families the flexibility to choose the ones that interest them. After the books are collected by TEEM, they are distributed by the Oklahoma Department of Corrections to several facilities, including Clara Waters Correctional Center, Oklahoma City Correctional Center, Rehabilitation Opportunity Center, Oklahoma and Union City.

Communicating with your child is a human need, which transcends a person’s status in society or the criminal justice system. For TEEM and the Thunder, being able to facilitate this essential humanity is a major part of answering this original question posed by Lawson and other key Thunder personnel in the summer of 2020. In TEEM, the Thunder organization found a way to make that impact — the kind that could have ripple effects within the Oklahoma City community for decades to come.

“When we talk about cycles of incarceration or poverty, we are not just talking about someone who has been affected by the system. We’re talking about generational cycles,” Berling said. “The goal of our programming is that if we can help someone break out of this cycle, it doesn’t just impact that person, but their children.”

SALT LAKE CITY — It didn’t take long for abortion to re-emerge as a flashpoint in state legislatures.

Less than a month into the 2022 legislative sessions, battles over the future of abortion are already unfolding around the United States. Republican lawmakers are proposing new restrictions inspired by Texas and Mississippi laws that present a direct challenge to the landmark Roe v. Wade, while some Democratic-led states are working to preserve or expand access.

Activity in state legislatures was anticipated after the United States Supreme Court, with its conservative majority, signaled that it was prepared to make seismic changes to the nation’s abortion law that has existed for nearly 10 years. ‘a half-century. If the court completely overturns Roe v. Wade, the decision of whether or not to keep abortion legal would be up to the states.

More than 20 states already have laws in place to ban or severely restrict abortion if Roe v. Wade is canceled. As legislative sessions begin, many are considering new bans.

“This could be a really, really dramatic year in terms of people’s ability to access abortion care and decide if, when and how they become parents,” said Kristin Ford, vice president of communications and outreach. at NARAL Pro-Choice America. , an abortion rights advocacy group. “By this time next year, we could be looking at a scenario in which more than half the country has lost access to abortion…It will have consequences for everyone.”

Against this backdrop, California lawmakers will consider becoming a “sanctuary” for those seeking reproductive care this year. This could include payment of travel, accommodation and procedural costs for people coming from other states.

“We face an all-out assault on reproductive freedom in America. There are powerful forces working tirelessly to push us back. But here in California, we’re not going to back down,” Congresswoman Cottie Petrie-Norris said, as state lawmakers proposed eight bills on Thursday. “We will continue to fight for reproductive freedom.”

Susan Arnall, outreach director for the Anti-Abortion Right to Life League, said other Democratic-led states are likely to follow California’s lead. His organization is fighting against the legislation introduced in the country’s most populous state.

Even so, she said abortion opponents have taken over in the United States.

“Life wins…and the abortion industry loses,” Arnall said.

Other Democratic-leaning states aren’t copying California yet, though New Jersey recently became the 15th state to protect abortion rights in state law, according to the Guttmacher Institute, a think tank. on abortion rights. Vermont could move toward enshrining “reproductive autonomy” in its constitution this year. In Michigan, abortion rights groups are calling for an amendment to enshrine the right to abortion in the state constitution.

Meanwhile, at least seven states could follow Texas, which has already effectively banned abortions after six weeks with a law strategically crafted to avoid a challenge in federal court. The Supreme Court allowed the law to remain in effect, even though it appears to contradict the Roe decision.

Similar proposals have been introduced in Ohio, Alabama, Oklahoma, Missouri, Florida and Arizona. South Dakota Governor Kristi Noem, a potential 2024 presidential candidate, released a proposal inspired by Texas law on Friday. She said it would “ensure that unborn children and their mothers are protected in South Dakota.”

Other states that already have six-week bans on the books could also change those measures to more closely resemble Texas law so they can go into effect, said Katie Glenn, government affairs adviser at Americans United for Life, an anti-abortion group.

The Texas law is unusual because it allows private citizens to bring civil suits against anyone who helps someone else get an abortion after six weeks. This has made legal challenges difficult because the government is not involved in law enforcement.

More than a dozen states have passed six-week abortion bans but have seen those efforts blocked by the courts. This made the Texas model more attractive to conservative lawmakers.

“Our message to lawmakers is, ‘Full steam ahead.’ If you feel like something might not be worth doing because it might be banned or you’re concerned about it, this is a great opportunity for state lawmakers to let the Supreme Court: ‘We have this,'” Glenn said.

Meanwhile, at least three Republican-led states — Arizona, Florida and West Virginia — are considering banning the procedure after 15 weeks, similar to the Mississippi law the Supreme Court has seemed see favorably during the pleadings in December. Under Roe, abortions are legal until a fetus can survive outside the womb, which is usually around 24 weeks.

In Florida, which currently allows abortions up to this point, GOP legislative leaders are optimistic about a proposal to ban it after 15 weeks, with some health-related exceptions, but none for rape and sexual assault. incest.

“There are a lot of pro-life laws. We’re going to welcome him,” Republican Gov. Ron DeSantis told reporters earlier this month. He is up for re-election this year and is considered one of the top Republican presidential hopefuls for 2024.

In another major change last year, the Food and Drug Administration made a regulatory change that allows people to access abortion medication by mail after getting a prescription online. This promises to be another front in the legal debate over abortion. Some states might allow pharmacists to refuse to dispense the drugs if they object to abortion.

Last year, eight states passed measures restricting the mailing of abortion drugs in anticipation of the FDA’s decision. A handful of states, including Republican-led Iowa, will debate bills on the subject this year, said Elizabeth Nash, state policy analyst at the Guttmacher Institute.

Last year was the “worst year for abortion rights” since the Roe ruling in 1973, Nash said, with more than 100 restrictions enacted across states.

“It just feels like the 2022 state sessions are going to be very active on abortion restrictions as well,” she said. “It feels like we’re at the start of another wave.”
