The latest incident is the attempted murder of radio presenter Jerome Tabanganay, who was shot twice outside his radio station in the northern province of Kalinga on 14 May, four days after the country went to the polls.“The toll from physical attacks on the press continues to mount in the final weeks of President Gloria Macapagal-Arroyo’s administration,” Reporters Without Borders said, calling for a thorough investigation into Tabanganay shooting. “A total of 137 journalists have been killed since she took office nine years ago. This shows that reforms aimed at promoting media freedom and protecting journalists are essential in the Philippines.” The press freedom organisation added: “We hope that the incoming government will do what is necessary to end the culture of impunity. We also appeal to President-elect Benigno Aquino to reestablish a positive climate for the media as soon as he takes office on 1 July.”The host of a news programme on state-owned Radyo ng Bayan, Tabanganay was approached by a gunman as he arrived outside the station on the morning of 14 May. He immediately started to run but the gunman managed to shoot him in the legs as he fled.The attack came on the same day that Esmael Mangudadatu was declared the winner of the gubernatorial election in Maguinadao, a province at the other end of the Philippines. Mangudadatu’s wife and two sisters were killed in massacre on 23 November 2009 in which 32 journalists lost their lives.The massacre made the Philippines the world’s deadliest country for the media in 2009.Reporters Without Borders also voices its strong support for the call by the National Union of Journalists of the Philippines to the outgoing government to bring forward a parliamentary vote on legislation that will decriminalise press offences.

Home / Daily Dose / Analyzing California’s Response to Wildfire Insurance Data Provider Black Knight to Acquire Top of Mind 2 days ago After the California wildfires of in 2017 and 2018, state insurers were hit with record-breaking losses of over $25 billion. In response, on November 14th, 2019, California Department of Insurance Commissioner Ricardo Lara ordered the FAIR Plan Association, a state-established “insurer of last resort” ran by a pool of private carriers, to offer comprehensive homeowners insurance, adding traditional perils like water damage, theft, and personal liability to their fire coverage. A new report from CoreLogic analyzes the events leading up to this development, and how state insurers responding.First, CoreLogic notes that many traditional carriers reduced or cancelled their insurance coverage in high-risk wildfire zones. In response, the Wildfire Safety and Recovery Act (CA SB-824) of 2019 mandated a one-year moratorium on non-renewal of homeowners insurance for at least 800,000 homes in ZIP codes near recent wildfire disasters”The moratorium draws parallels to the aftermath of 1992 Hurricane Andrew, where property and casualty insurers in Florida were faced with over $16 billion in losses,” CoreLogic said. “In 1993, the Department of Insurance imposed a moratorium on non-renewals of residential property coverages in Florida for 90 days.”In October 2018, the Florida Insurance Commissioner issued a 90-day moratorium for carriers in counties impacted by Hurricane Michael. California’s lengthy one-year moratorium is proving a challenge for state insurers as they work to control losses amidst many years of consistent devastating wildfire events.The California Insurance Commissioner and state lawmakers also introduced Assembly Bill 2367, named “Renew California”. The bill would create a Wildfire Resilience Task Force, which would include the Insurance Commissioner, the Director of the Office of Emergency Services, and the State Fire Marshal, to establish minimum standards for fire-hardened homes and communities. The bill would also require admitted property insurers in the state to write or renew policies when the applicant or insured owns a residence with an estimated replacement cost consistent with the insurer’s underwriting guidelines and the residence and community meet the minimum standards for fire-hardening.
