The problem as I see it is that trying to raise funds to try and stop world hunger is somewhat a futile endeavor. Not that it is not worthwhile cause, but that the way the funds are allocated and used are not correctly utilized or implemented. The funds are not even replenished correctly in my point of view.
What if donations are collected and saved in a bank account and not touched by anyone. But instead use the interest to spawn new bank accounts and use the interest from those spawned accounts to help fight world hunger. The idea is to use the strength and weakness of currencies as an advantage. .
Create a main bank account in a country with the strongest currency. Then obtain, request, and save funds into this bank account. But most importantly never withdraw money from this account, only use the interest earned from this account for step 2. Hopefully the funds in this main account will be large enough for this to work, maybe an amount above 1 Billion would be sufficient. Then, in the same country with the strongest currency create bank accounts for every country to be used in Step 2. Also create bank accounts locally in the selected countries to be used in Step 3.
Every month transfer interest earned from the main bank account into a selected countries bank account. Then select another country for the next month. Then if all countries had been given interest from the main account, create a new cycle of selection.
Every month transfer interest earned from the countries bank account from the strong currency into a selected country’s bank locally. Then use the money in this local bank account to feed the people in the selected country. Remember that money is transferred from a strong currency, and because of this more money will be available to feed the people – Hopefully.
If 5 Billion could be saved/raised, then the interest could be split monthly between 5 countries.
If 10 Billion could be saved/raised, then the interest could be split monthly between 10 countries.
Thus the more money could be raised/saved, the faster the benefits will be seen.

Money is an uncountable noun. The best thing you can do is count units of money. And every nation has a different name for those units and they are valued relatively to a particular unit’s buying power at home and it’s buying power after conversion somewhere else. And this value is always changing. In other words, we all have a pretty good idea (at least we think we have a pretty good idea) of what money does, but the fact remains that money is completely relative to a extraordinarily complex set of factors, among those including political and economic ones. In a simple sense, diamonds are only valuable because they are rare, and gold (which used to be used as money) was like that as well. But now hardly anyone knows what exactly is determining the value of money- even the economists don’t know.
So how then is money like water? Because most of us have a very simplistic and narrow view of money, and in general, the more you have, the better. But money, like water, always has to go somewhere, doesn’t it? You can, I suppose, accumulate it and keep it, like a water reservoir, in a big bank account for future use. But water evaporates into thin air and so does money (through inflation or economic voodoo spells), so you either must then invest it and make money off your money (which is always risky in one way or another) or spend it ahead of inflation. In any case, if you’re not in the business of making more and more money, (if you’re on a fixed income) money can become a very difficult paradigm to figure out.
I don’t have to worry about that at the moment, though I do find that position enviable (well, a more or less fixed income- I’d like to deal in goods rather than work for cash). But right now my bankbook reads like a riverbed in an extreme environment of a monthly flash floods, immediately followed by a month long drought. Money flows in, I pay all the bills, and there’s nothing left to save. So the nation of me is very water poor.
As we know, there are 20 odd private life insurance companies in India, and there is LIC which is a public sector company. LIC is the 800 pound gorilla, managing to hold on to about 75% market share even 10 years after private companies have been allowed into the life insurance space. The private life insurance companies position themselves on being more customer friendly, wider array of products etc while LIC holds on to its positioning of trust, experience and government backing. One of the key parameters on which to judge a life insurance company is their claims payment record. At the same time, we must note that given that life insurance has become more of a savings and investment product, the returns that they provide are perhaps more important than claims payout ratios. Nevertheless, claims record is definitely not a variable to be ignored.
A table illustrating the claims rejection percentages of the top life insurance companies in 2009-10 is presented below:
Life Insurance Company
Claims rejection ratio (%)
Bajaj Allianz 5.2%
Birla SunLife 10.62%
HDFC Life 4.67%
ICICI Prudential 3.27%
ING Vysya 4.26%
Kotak Mahindra 4.29%
Max New York Life 12.31%
Reliance Life 7.05%
SBI Life 14.75%
Tata AIG 12.3%
An important observation from the above table is that the claims rejection ratio of LIC is the lowest, thus implying that their record is the best as far as claims payment is concerned. At the same time, the very high percentage of claims rejection of SBI Life and Max New York Life surely comes in as a surprise.
It must however be noted once again that in Unit Linked products that life insurance companies promote aggressively (or at least was promoting till Sep 2010) , the returns earned on the fund is perhaps a more important variable than the claims payment (or rejection) ratio. However, for non life insurance companies, which offer pure protection/insurance products with no savings or investment component, claims payment is the crucial variable along with the speed of processing of claims.
Let us now look at the incurred claims ratios of the non life insurance companies:
Non Life Insurance Company
Incurred claims ratio
New India Assurance 89%
Oriental Insurance 99.69%
United India Insurance 78.62%
National Insurance 99.16%
Royal Sundaram 68.95%
Reliance General Insurance 77.3%
Iffco Tokio Insurance 83.44%
Tata AIG 60.54%
ICICI Lombard 85.35%
Bajaj Allianz 71.9%
HDFC Ergo 80.73%
Bharti Axa 104%%
One data point that stands out from above is that Tata AIG General Insurance seems to be sourcing the best quality business from the underwriting point of view, whereas the claims payment ratio of Bharti Axa seems to be quite high. Alo,the claims payment ratio of the public insurers, at an overall level, is higher than that of the private non life insurers.
TENNIS TRADING SYSTEM
This system exploits the fluctuations in price that occur during a tennis match. There are three things which will have a big impact on the price of the two players.
Break points, or even more of an impact from a confirmed break
Winning a set
Any sign of a player being injured and liable to retire
The price fluctuations are to my eyes out of proportion compared to the actual chances of a player eventually winning or losing the game, and this is where the system comes into its own.
The rules of the system are as follows
Only bet in mens games run by the ATP, where there is in-play betting offered by Betfair. These are easy to find just go into the tennis section of the Betfair site, click on the coupons tab, and then click on ‘Today’s in-play tab’).
Only bet in matches where the price of the favourite is between 1.20 and 1.50, if there are many matches in a day that fit the bill then tighten this to 1.30-1.40.You have to be able to put a bet on the underdog when the match goes in-play so make a note of the start time of the match on the ‘Rules’ tab for the match.
CAUTION – Matches quite often do not start at the stated time, they could get delayed by weather or a previous match overrunning, so you have to be flexible enough to be able to check regularly when the match is likely to start. You can get a clue by studying the order of play and live scores via the internet.
Before the start of play you need to check the prices offered by all your active bookmakers by using Betbrain . You select the book offering the best price for the favourite. You then use my trading spreadsheet (free from my website) to calculate your stakes. Enter the odds for the favourite into cell i6, then calculate your required stake for the underdog, by putting odds into cell h6, gradually altering them until the net profit shown in cell k10 is 15% (or just over).
So now you place your bet on the favourite with the chosen book (which could be Betfair, or any other of your active books), this can be done several hours before the match starts. Then when the game goes in-play you place your bet on the underdog at the calculated trading odds.
I am using a progressive staking plan for this systemFurther details can be found on my website Tennis Gambling Systems
If you have financial problems, then you know how much stress it can cause you and your family. Especially, when an emergency arrises and you do not have the proper funds to deal with it. You can get help from one of the many personal bank loans that are available, though. There are many different options with different requirements and as long as you meet these requirements you can get some money in your pocket pretty quickly. Here are some of the requirements you will be dealing with.
You should know what your credit looks like. Most banks or lenders are going to base the majority of their decision on your credit and income. most people are not even close to being aware of their credit score or what is on their credit report. You can get a free credit report once a year from all three bureaus just by writing them and asking for it. If you are really in a hurry or in a bind, then just apply for the loan and they can let you know what your credit looks like.
You should know that personal bank loans are not the easiest to get. Banks tend to be pickier than other lenders and usually require pretty good credit. There are some lenders that all you have to do is sign their contract and you get money right then in your hand. They will probably want a voided check and a couple of paycheck stubs, but it can be that simple. However, banks do not work like that. They will pull your credit, check and verify your income and employment, and want some other documents like tax forms and what not.
The only way you will know if you qualify for a personal bank loan is by applying and either being accepted or turned down. Either way you will know what the next step is. You will either have to go to a place that does not require credit or you will have your loan. If you need to go somewhere that does not require credit, then look for a payday loan store or cash advance store to get your fast cash loan.

Debt collection businesses are considered highly profitable but it is tough business to do. Debt collection is a critical process to avoid business losses. It is also not viable for a business group or financial institutions to nag debtors to collect debt amounts. That why Debt collection agencies come into picture and these agencies make sure that debts are repaid. There are lots of debt collection agencies in Argentina who are committed towards their clients globally. Debt collection has even become the perfect free enterprise with safe returns.
It is universal practice among businesses to give credit to customers to earn goodwill and improve sales volume. But if customers do not pay their debts on time or try to get out of paying, debts can turn into a heavy expense and it can damage your business seriously. Bad debts, if not dealt with immediately, can become a black mark on a company’s balance sheet. So for reducing risk, many financial institutions opt for credit management agencies to recover their debts.

You can have good customer relationships as collection agencies are professional enough. Another thing you can save the expense of in-house salaried personnel. If you hire a debt collection agency it may happen that it recover the whole debt as collection agencies have the incentive of getting a percentage of what they collect. You need not to bother from legal hassles as the collection agencies are familiar with debt collection rules and regulations.
In the end, agencies help your business in reducing bad debts and improving customer relationships. So the key tom success is to be discreet in selecting a good collection agency for your business. For more information
