#ThrowbackThursday to last month when Tahirih Houston Executive Director, Anne Chandler, spoke on a panel entitled “Belonging, at the Border: Immigration, Gender & Family Separation” sponsored by the University of Houston Women's, Gender & Sexuality Studies Program (WGSS). Anne joined other panelists including Refugee and Immigration Center for Education and Legal (RAICES) Managing Attorney Tatiana Obando and University of Houston College of Education Assistant Professor Ruth Maria Lopez to discuss immigration, gender, and family separation. ⠀
As the only national, multi-city organization providing both policy leadership and direct, on the ground services exclusively to immigrant and refugee women and girls fleeing violence, we are grateful to be part of important discussions centered on immigration, gender, and family separation. ⠀
In January, Québec became the first provinceto implement a Zero Emission Vehicle (ZEV) mandate where automakers have to sell a certain percentage of electric cars. They have set a goal of having 100,000 electric or hybrid vehicles on provincial roads by 2020, and one million by 2030. Currently, 3.5% of 2018 vehicle models sold in Quebec must be electric or plug-in hybrids. This will increase to 15.5% by 2020, and 22% by 2025. This mandate mirrors US state regulations in California and 9 other states.
And while the adoption of electric vehicles may be slower in Canada than in other countries, progress has been made in British Columbia!
ALL NEW light-duty cars and trucks sold in British Columbia will be zero-emission by 2040!
The legislation, planned to be introduced next spring by the province, will implement the requirements in stages: 10% by 2025; 30% by 2030; 100% by 2040.
B.C.’s transportation sector accounts for 37% of the GHG emissions, with 3.7 million light and heavy vehicles on the road, and only about 1.5% of them being electric (EV). In contrast, the purchase of new EVs make up to 3.5% of the total sold in the first half of 2018, according to Clean Energy Canada.
Sales of new EVs are booming in Canada, exceeding the 2% market share threshold (for the first time higher than in the US). In B.C., where sales are over three times the rate of other provinces, the government is increasing its purchase incentive program by $20 million this year, for a total of $57 million. Eligible EV buyers will continue to receive between $5,000 and $6,000 in incentives. And while B.C. already has a network of charging stations, the government will more than double the number of fast-chargers available to the public from 71 to 151.
The shift to EVs is global. Some companies have acknowledge this, as other countries are pushing ahead with more progressive agendas: China is aiming for 10 % by 2019; Germany, India, Ireland, Israel and the Netherlands plan to stop non-EVs sales by 2030; France, Scotland and the UK have promised to do the same a few years later.

Know Your Plants: Jatropha
Fun fact: swipe right to post 3- on bending the stem of a Jatropha plant, a soapy liquid is released which children often use to blow bubbles! .
The Jatropha plant is a miracle plant. It is known for its antimicrobial, anti-cancer potential and is an important component of the National Biofuel Policy of India which aims to meet 20% of India's diesel demand with fuel derived from plants!
Did you know that Jatropha seeds are very rich in oil (40%)- so Jatropha oil has been used as fuel in India for decades in remote rural and forest communities. .

Who is a Named Insured:
1.) Named Insureds can be Individuals, Corporations, Limited Liability Corporations, Partnerships, Trusts, etc. (no individuals.)
2.) Named insureds are the owners of the policy and are protected per the coverages provided.
3.) Named insureds will have a financial interest in the property and/or operation insured.
4.) A policy could have multiple named insureds and can become complex.
Rights and duties of the first named insured:
1.) Required to pay premiums
2.) Receiver of return premiums
3.) Has the right to request cancellation
4.) Receives all policy mail and notices
5.) Can request and receive endorsements
Best practices for distinguishing Named Insureds:
1.) Consider Financial Interest in property and/or operations to be insured.
2.) Determine legal entity(s) for each Named Insured.
3.) Determine eligibility for Named Insured status on the policy. This may require a conversation with the broker as well as an ERM-14, OR a Named Insured Worksheet.
4.) Review all contracts to which the insured has a restaurant/management agreement, insurance agreements, etc.
5.) Pay attention to if there are multiple lines of coverage in place. (Will there be an Umbrella?) Remember if you name them on the GL, this will extend to the XS or Umbrella and could be providing coverage for an operation we had NO intention of covering.)
Key notes: When consolidating named insureds, to avoid confusion make sure there is true interest in the class of business you are insuring. You do not want to pick up building owners exposures or ops outside of intended class to cover.
