DUBAI, UAE, January 31, 2021 /EINPresswire.com/ —

His Highness Sheikh Hamdan bin Rashid Al Maktoum, Deputy Ruler of Dubai, UAE’s Minister of Finance and Chairman of the Board of Directors (BOD) of Etihad Credit Insurance (ECI), presided and started the 1st Board of Directors virtual meeting in 2021 by congratulating the management for achieving unparallelled feats for the past year, reflecting the strength of the national economy despite challenges faced by the global economy due to the repercussions of the COVID-19 pandemic.

The Chairman lauded the substantial contributions of the UAE Federal export credit company to UAE businesses and SMEs during this economic cycle, supporting their growth in the international market and thereby propelling the nation’s non-oil economy towards greater heights, in line with the vision of our wise leaders.

His Excellency Dr. Thani bin Ahmed Al Zeyoudi, UAE Minister of State for Foreign Trade, was nominated for the new Deputy Chairman of the BOD of ECI and elected by the Board Members. H.H. Sheikh Hamdan also welcomed the new Deputy Chairman.

H.H. Sheikh Hamdan expressed his sincere thanks and appreciation to His Excellency Eng. Sultan bin Saeed Al Mansoori, former UAE Minister of Economy and Deputy Chairman of the BOD of ECI, for his huge efforts that have effectively supported the operations of ECI and contributed to achieving its goals, wishing him success and prosperity.

H.H. Sheikh Hamdan stated that ECI has been staunch in its mandate to support UAE businesses by enhancing their competitiveness in the global arena: “ECI’s broad range of trade credit solutions and guarantees play a pivotal role in fortifying UAE exporters and investors, enabling their contribution to the country’s diversified Gross Domestic Product (GDP) in this economic cycle. We recognise the efforts of ECI’s management, and the monumental strides it has taken to further shore up their competitiveness in the international markets—from initiatives that aim to educate businesses, partnerships with various local and global entities to ease SMEs’ access to funding, to innovative and modern tools that further help protect our entrepreneurs and investors from the risks associated with foreign markets.”

“ECI has been continuing on the right growth trajectory. It has been supportive to positioning the UAE as the global hub for trade and business, a nation that is front-running the global export community. Its comprehensive array of trade credit solutions embolden UAE companies to cement their presence globally, helping them trade safely and confidently, thereby achieving unimaginable growth,” H.H. Sheikh Hamdan added.

Meanwhile, H.E. Dr. Al Zeyoudi praised ECI for being assigned with Insurance Financial Strength (IFS) Rating and an Issuer Default Rating (IDR) of AA- (Very Strong) with Stable Outlook from Fitch Ratings, for the second year. He said that the high rating received by ECI reflects how the company is strategically important for the UAE Economy, the strength of its Government shareholders, strong company capitalisation and its prudent investments, the strong and well diversified reinsurance programme built by the management, and the disciplined commercial & risk underwriting strategy. All key drivers enable ECI to fulfil its unyielding commitment to help UAE businesses gain a competitive edge in the international market through providing them protection and trade confidence.

H.E. Dr. Al Zeyoudi said: “With our strong presence in the global arena through our bespoke export credit, financing, and investment insurance products, ECI has proven its solid contributions to the UAE economy despite being only on its third year of operations and amidst the ongoing impact of the global COVID-19 pandemic. I am immensely proud of what we have accomplished at ECI, and our feats give a nod to our staunch commitment to support UAE companies, and ultimately boost the country’s diversification agenda. Our achievements mirror our objective to continuously innovate in order to provide utmost support for UAE companies.”

During the meeting, the Board of Directors also discussed ECI’s 10-year strategy implementation that aims to further strengthen its support for UAE businesses, examined the audited financial statements of 2019 and 2020 preliminary figures, and commented on the initiative of having a new visual identity to continue its innovative strategic development that is leaning towards digitalisation. The Board of Directors also underscored the implementation of the Board Governance Manual for Federal companies, issued from the UAE Cabinet.

The members of the Board who attended the meeting included His Excellency Rashid Abdul Karim Al Balooshi, the Undersecretary of Abu Dhabi Department of Economic Development (ADDED)—representing the Emirate of Abu Dhabi; His Excellency Saed Mohamed Alawadi, Executive Director of Dubai Export Development Corporation—representing the Emirate of Dubai; His Excellency Dr Abdurahman Al Shayeb Al Naqbi, Director General of the Department of Economic Development of Ras Al Khaimah—representing the Emirate of Ras Al Khaimah; His Excellency Marwan Ahmed Al Ali, Director General of Ajman Department of Finance—representing the Emirate of Ajman; His Excellency Yousef Abdullah Alawadi, Deputy Director of Fujairah Natural Resources Corporation—representing the Emirate of Fujairah; Abeer Ali Abdooli, Director of the Financial Policies Coordination Department; Saif Ali Mohamed Al Shehhi, Independent Member; Abdulla Mohamed Al Yousef, Independent Member; and Ahmad Rashid Ahmad bin Fahad, representing the Youth.

Hailstorm Damage Puts Faith in Question

roof damage insurance claim denied

ARLINGTON, TX, USA, January 29, 2021 /EINPresswire.com/ — The 2016 storm season was the most expensive storm season on record for Texas. On March 17th, 2016 Arlington, Texas experienced no less than six recorded hailstorms, the largest of which generated hail two-and-a-half inches in diameter. The hazardous weather system began Thursday morning, dropping huge pieces of hail and grounding flights out of DFW Airport. This was a monster storm that damaged many homes in the area, our client being one of those homeowners.

The roof damage was so severe that our client submitted a homeowners insurance claim through his insurance provider, State Farm. After filing the roof damage claim, the insurer sent out their adjuster who inspected the property damage and determined there was none or below our client’s deductible. Blindsided by his insurer’s stance, our client hired us and invoked appraisal for their case. The appraisal award came back at 80,000 times the amount of damages originally assessed by State Farm.

State Farm paid most of the award. To collect the remainder of the award and interest and attorney fees, our client pursued his insurer by filing suit, declaring his insurance company had acted in breach of contract and violation of Chapter 541 of the Texas Insurance Code, the Texas Deceptive Trade Practices Act (DTPC), and the Texas Prompt Payment of Claims Act (TPPCA). To guard their profits, insurers every so often commits deceitful practices, deliberately distort their policy language to avoid paying a claim, use absurd delays to avoid resolution of a claim, or make frivolous demands about proof of loss. This is called a bad faith insurance practice.

Our client’s insurer responded with a motion for partial summary judgment on all our client’s claims as a means of staving off breach of contract and TPPCA pursuits based on the Texas Supreme Court decision in Ortiz. State Farm argued that they had paid the award and therefore there was no breach of contract or extra-contractual claims left to pursue.

Is It Bad Faith, Bad Luck, or Both?
For the statutory bad faith claim to stick, our client had to show a breach of contract by his insurer. The insurer contends that a breach of contract is a prerequisite to statutory bad faith, yet policyholders argue a breach of contract is only a prerequisite to bad faith when the claim is not covered.

Generally, there can be no claim for bad faith when an insurer has promptly denied a claim that is not covered. However, failure to show a breach of contract does not alleviate a policyholder’s bad faith claims. What this means is the insured must show coverage, not a breach of contract. It is undisputed that our client’s claim under the policy was covered. The insurer did find damage, below the deductible when the claim was initially adjusted.

The only fair and rational analysis of the law that does not offend common sense or public policy is one that preserves an insurer’s responsibility to deal with an insured in good faith when the insured’s claim is covered. Our client’s insurance providers manipulation of the law would allow them to ignore their responsibility and systematically delay, deny, or underpay insurance claims until the insured hires an attorney and sends a pre-suit notice letter suing for breach of contract and bad faith, then to simply invoke appraisal, pay the award, and weaken the insurer’s contractual liability but also its statutory liability for bad faith acts and the adjustment process.

At the hearing, our attorneys argued the above and pointed out that an appraisal award that is 80,000 times higher than the amount first assessed by State Farm, and the unilateral (line-item veto) of certain damages in the award, amounted to breach of contract and bad faith. The court agreed and denied State Farm’s summary judgment on all grounds.

4 Top Advances in Pain Relief Technology

Neurolumen logo

Neurolumen Device Wrap on a Leg

Neurolumen case

OKLAHOMA CITY, OKLAHOMA, UNITED STATES, January 28, 2021 /EINPresswire.com/ — An estimated 50 million adults in the United States suffer from chronic pain. People frequently turn to addictive pain medications in their attempts to find relief from chronic pain. Thanks to advancements in medical technology, there are less invasive and better ways to treat pain. Innovative pain relief technologies such as the Neurolumen, Quell’s Wearable Pain Relief technology, Radiofrequency ablation, and the ReST Bed each can help. In this article, we’ll introduce four leading technologies that can provide relief.

1. Neurolumen is an innovative medical device that can provide fast and effective pain relief.
The device works by improving circulation thereby reducing pain. It combines light therapy with therapeutic benefits of electrical stimulation. Dramatic results are frequently obtained within the first 30 minutes to one hour of treatment with this non-invasive alternative therapy. Neurolumen is lightweight, portable and easy to wrap. Neurolumen is used to treat pain in the back, knees, shoulder, as well as pain in many other parts of the body. The Federal Workers Compensation program provides coverage for treatment of injured workers. Additionally, the Veterans Administration provides coverage for injured veterans.

2. Quell’s Wearable Pain Relief Technology sends neural pulses to the brain which triggers the body’s natural pain blockers to relieve pain. A smartphone app allows for customization of a variety of activities, sleep, gait etc. to adjust therapy intensity. It is FDA approved and found to potentially provide fast pain relief for two out of three patients

3. Radiofrequency ablation is a popular pain relief treatment targeting specific nerves to block sending pain signals to the brain. An electrical current produced by a radio wave, is used to heat up the affected nerve, zapping it to decrease pain signals to that area. It has been proven as an adequate treatment to potentially reduce pain.

4. The ReST Bed is a mattress that provides comfortable sleep for those suffering from night time pain. With the use of an app, you can customize softness or firmness of the mattress in a variety of sections of the mattress. It automatically detects when the sleeper moves and will inflate or deflate according to desired firmness. The ReST Bed can help you overcome the struggle of tossing, turning and other movements during sleep.

Psychiatric Industry Aiming to Profit from Racism, Targets African Americans

Excerpted from the Citizens Commission on Human Rights Colorado website

WASHINGTON, DC, USA, January 28, 2021 /EINPresswire.com/ — While many Americans see the recent racial tension in this country as an opportunity to address the issue of racial injustice, the psychiatric-pharmaceutical industry sees it as an opportunity to expand their reach – very profitably – into the African American community.

Psychiatrists, psychologists, and mental health groups, many funded by pharmaceutical companies, had already been arbitrarily asserting that African Americans are 20% more likely to experience serious mental health problems, and less likely to identify their own mental health problems, than the general population.

Now psychiatric practitioners are trying to create a higher level of urgency. The American Psychological Association has announced that “we are living in a racism pandemic.”

Psychiatrists and psychologists are labeling the very real pain experienced from racism as a psychiatric disorder – post-traumatic stress disorder (PTSD) – for which a standard treatment is antidepressants. These are drugs that carry the risk of serious and debilitating physical and mental side effects, including emotional blunting, worsening depression, sexual problems, birth defects, anxiety, hallucinations, agitation, violence, and suicidal thoughts and actions. Patrick D. Hahn, Affiliate Professor of Biology, Loyola University Maryland warns, “The link between antidepressants and violence, including suicide and homicide, is well established.”

American psychological and psychiatric associations have already developed guidelines on how to “treat” racism – guidelines that ensure that Black Americans are informed about psychiatric drugs as treatment.

Psychiatrists and psychologists have a long history of re-defining people’s normal responses to bad situations as “mental disorders” requiring their “treatment.” But history shows that Blacks have been especially targeted for “treatment,” and so have good reason to beware of practitioners in the psychiatric industry.

Professors Herb Kutchins and Stuart Kirk, co-authors of Making Us Crazy: DSM: The Psychiatric Bible and the Creation of Mental Disorders, state: “Defenders of slavery, proponents of racial segregation…have consistently attempted to justify oppression by inventing new mental illnesses and by reporting higher rates of abnormality among African Americans or other minorities.”

They further warn: “Innovations in diagnostic and treatment techniques are often proposed by those who claim to be committed to helping African Americans and other minority groups, but these innovations often perpetuate and increase racist thinking and lead to solutions that intensify persecution.“

For generations, psychiatrists and psychologists have been prime instigators of “scientific racism,” using pseudo-science to invent “racial diseases,” promote theories to “justify” segregation and racial population control, and subject Blacks to depraved “treatments” and barbaric psychiatric experiments.

About Citizens Commission on Human Rights: CCHR is a nonprofit, non-political, non-religious mental health watchdog. Its mission is to eradicate abuses committed under the guise of mental health and enact patient and consumer protections. CCHR was co-founded in 1969 by the Church of Scientology and Professor of Psychiatry Emeritus Dr. Thomas Szasz.

The Citizens Commission on Human Rights traveling exhibit has been displayed in Washington, DC, at the Congressional Black Caucus Foundation Annual Legislative Caucus, as well as other locations. The exhibit has toured more than 441 major cities around the world and has educated over 800,000 people on the history and contemporary practices of psychiatry which are still rampant with abuse.

LONDON, UNITED KINGDOM, January 28, 2021 /EINPresswire.com/ — The ID2020 Alliance is delighted to welcome U.K.-based Nuggets as the newest member of its vibrant community. The Alliance is made up of public and private sector organizations who share a common commitment to good ID for all.

The Nuggets proposition could not be clearer, proclaiming boldly that “privacy is a fundamental human right” and signalling an immediate alignment with the ID2020 Manifesto – the statement of principles that guide the Alliance’s work.

“We are always excited to welcome organizations who so wholeheartedly embrace our values,” said ID2020 Executive Director, Dakota Gruener. “When we talk about complex issues, such as identity and data ownership, we know that transparency is essential to building trust – with customers, partners, and users. We could not be more excited to welcome Nuggets to the Alliance as we work together toward a future with good digital identity for all.”

Nuggets offers a robust decentralized self-sovereign ID and payments platform, that enables consumers to retain control of their personal information and businesses to protect their customer’s data. Their solution leverages biometrics for verification, strong customer authentication, and cryptographic proof of identity to facilitate customer onboarding (KYC & KYB), single sign-on with biometrics, omnichannel payments, age verification, contactless delivery and verified two-way communication transactions through a scalable, decentralized digital ID.

Founded in 2016 by Alastair Johnson and Seema Khinda Johnson, Nuggets is available in Europe and Australia and is expanding its platform into new verticals including financial services, which has been advanced by a significant partnership with LexisNexis Risk Solutions, one of the largest protectors of private and confidential data in the world.

Nuggets has already won numerous awards for its industry leading FinTech offerings, including most recently from Deutsche Bank. As part of their recent growth, Nuggets has established commercial partnerships with global companies such as LexisNexis Risk Solutions, LatPay, QFPay and a variety of other organizations.

“Frustratingly, 2020 was the worst year on record for data breaches, signalling a seismic shift in consumer attitudes towards privacy,” said Alastair Johnson, CEO & Founder of Nuggets. “On this Data Privacy Day – held annually on January 28 to create awareness about the importance of respecting privacy, safeguarding data and enabling trust – it feels particularly timely for Nuggets to join forces with ID2020 and the other brand leaders that are helping to make protecting customers’ data a top priority in this increasingly data-driven digital world.”

The ID2020 Alliance also continues to grow at a healthy pace, welcoming organizations from the public and private sectors that share our commitment to user-managed privacy-protecting, and portable digital ID. As an Alliance, we are only as strong as our members and we are thrilled to add Nuggets to the partnership as we move–together–towards providing good ID for all.
