FLMIC gifts another $100,000 to support the Bar’s professionalism efforts

first_img Dec 08, 2020 By Jim Ash Senior Editor Top Stories FLMIC gifts another $100,000 to support the Bar’s professionalism efforts Ray FerreroThe Florida Lawyers Mutual Insurance Company, in conjunction with The Florida Bar, is donating $100,000 to an endowment that supports professionalism in the legal profession.“The fund will support the delivery of programs to promote professionalism, civility, ethical conduct, and legal practice competency among our members,” former Bar President Gregory Coleman said in a FLMIC statement. “Professionalism is the cornerstone of every lawyer’s practice.”FLMIC Chair and former Bar President Ray Ferrero, Jr., announced the endowment at a December 4 meeting of the Board of Governors.Ferrero described the creation of FLMIC in 1989, when Bar leaders were trying to find a solution to a shrinking number of liability insurance providers and skyrocketing premiums.“Many firms, including my own, were temporarily without coverage and that’s not a good feeling,” Ferrero said.Thousands of Florida lawyers helped raise $2.5 million, Ferrero said. The fund was augmented by a $500,000 contribution by the Bar, and FLMIC was born with two employees working out of the basement of the Bar’s Tallahassee headquarters, Ferrero said.“Obviously, Florida recognized the need and responded,” Ferrero said. “It really was a statewide effort by so many people.”Today, FLMIC provides “a continuing and professional source of professional liability insurance based on a reasonable liability standard and reasonable premiums,” Ferrero said.The company now has 13 employees stationed at its headquarters in Oviedo, and boasts more than $115 million in assets and a “surplus north of $73 million,” Ferrero said. Wall Street rating services give FLMIC an “A” rating, Ferrero said.President Dori Foster-Morales thanked Ferrero for his presentation and for the FLMIC donation.last_img read more

Donnelly makes Division I debut in Championships

first_imgDonnelly makes Division I debut in ChampionshipsThe senior is a four-time Division III national Champion. Kelsey ChristensenSenior Sean Donnelly is competing in the 2016 NCAA Outdoor Track & Field Championship for hammer throw. Donnelly tossed the hammer 74.35 meters at the Baldy Castillo Invitational this season, which is reported as the ninth farthest throw in the world. Jack WhiteJune 8, 2016Jump to CommentsShare on FacebookShare on TwitterShare via EmailPrintMany track and field athletes who make their NCAA Championships debut would not have postseason experience at the college level. Senior Sean Donnelly is a rare exception. Donnelly, a four-time Division III national champion at the University of Mount Union, transferred to Minnesota for his final year of collegiate eligibility. This week he will make his first appearance in the Division I NCAA Championships in Eugene, Ore. “We’re super hopeful with him,” head coach Steve Plasencia said. “He’s definitely had a great year and he was a great addition as a one-year, fifth-year guy to come to the program. It’s been nothing but a bonus there.”Donnelly dominated at the Division III level. He is an eight-time All-American and finished in first place in the Division III NCAA Championships in the shot put, weight throw and hammer throw in his final year with Mount Union.The senior has continued to impress in his first year at the Division I level. Donnelly set three meet records this season — one in the weight throw and two in the hammer throw. Donnelly also broke the Gophers’ previous record in the hammer throw of 68.94 meters at the Baldy Castillo Invitational with a 74.35-meter mark. It is the ninth-best throw in the world this year and the best in NCAA competition thus far.  Donnelly is attempting to join a class of prominent Minnesota throwers with his performance at the NCAA Championships. The Gophers have had five All-American throwers in the last five seasons with seven total honors.“It’s a little bit different,” Plasencia said. “One of the differences is he’s essentially had one season to throw for Minnesota. He’s been the most confident of any of the guys we’ve had in terms of his performances. … In terms of gifts and abilities, he’s probably one of the most talented guys we’ve had.”The hammer throw takes place on the first day of the meet, and Donnelly is the only Minnesota thrower competing. If Donnelly finishes in the top eight, his hopes of becoming a Division I First Team All-American will be realized.“I’m driving around town and I’m thinking, ‘I’ve been dreaming of playing in this meet for four years now,’ and I finally have the opportunity,” Donnelly said. “It means a lot to me, and I’m excited to go out and compete against the best hand throwers in the nation and see how I do.”Donnelly heads back to Eugene, Ore., later this summer in an attempt to qualify for the U.S. Olympic team for the first time in his career. “Of course you think about the opportunities in front of him, which are to place very high at the NCAA meet and may even contend to win,” throwing coach Lynden Reder said. “He’s ranked third in the U.S., and they take the top three to the Olympic games. … Day in and day out we’re just checking the boxes of what needs to be done in terms of the process, and the rest just takes care of itself.”last_img read more

Researchers: We can watch 3-D with only one eye

first_imgCNN: Humans can see 3-D images with only one eye, according to new research, suggesting a future in which the technology could become cheaper and more accessible.Simply looking through a small hole is enough to experience 3-D, says Dhanraj Vishwanath, a psychologist at the University of St. Andrews in Scotland. His research was published in the journal Psychological Science.The 3-D technology that’s currently used in movies and other media relies on two visual images, one from each eye, combining in the viewer’s brain to produce 3-D’s extra layer of depth.But Vishwanath’s research suggests that both eyes aren’t needed.“We have demonstrated experimentally, for the first time, that the same ‘special way’ in which depth is experienced in 3D movies can also be experienced by looking at a normal picture with one eye viewing through a small aperture (circular hole).Read the whole story: CNNlast_img read more

Ukrainian clocks up 1 Old Bond Street

first_imgUkrainian investors have bought a building on one London’s most exclusive shopping streets, Old Bond Street, in the heart of London’s Mayfair, at a net initial yield of less than 4%.A private Ukrainian company has bought 1 Old Bond Street, which has two shops let to Watches of Switzerland and Ralph Lauren, for around £14m.The company is understood to have exchanged contracts with Scottish Widows Investment Partnership for the building last week, paying cash. The price is believed to reflect a net initial yield of 3.8%, based on rent of more than £520,000 a year.Watches of Switzerland pays a zone A rent of £400 in one of the units and £425 in the other. The cheaper unit has an outstanding rent review and the price factors in an expected increase in rent.Old Bond Street is the most expensive location in London to rent a shop – Colliers CRE’s central London retail market overview for autumn 2008 found zone A rents on the street are £725.It is also understood that designer Dolce & Gabana is close to securing a store at a rent equivalent to almost £800 zone A, reflecting the strong tenant demand for the street. It is thought CB Richard Ellis is advising.The investment deal shows that, despite the global economic turmoil, there is still demand from cash-rich foreign investors for UK property in prime locations.Overseas investors spent around £6bn in UK property for the first nine months of the year, research from Jones Lang LaSalle shows.The figure accounts for 54% of commercial property investment in the country. UK private investors (£1.2bn) and unlisted UK property companies (£4bn) make up the rest.German investors have bought the most in the UK this year – around £1.6bn – and the Middle East is responsible for £1.4bn. Other big spenders come from the US (£921m) and Ireland (£701m).The building at 1 Old Bond Street also has two floors of offices let to Ralph Lauren and a top-floor flat. Lewis Ellis acted for the vendor.Among other recent Mayfair sales at sub-4% yields was Hermes’ 7 Clifford Street, sold to a Russian investor for £70m. Jones Lang Lasalle acted for Hermes.last_img read more
