“How Do Insurance Companies Use Credit Scores”
Insurance companies are using certain parts of credit scores to affect the premiums they charge people for auto insurance. Companies started doing this in the 1990’s working with creator of the standard credit score, FICO. It gained a lot of traction quickly and by 2006 almost every major insurer was using it as a part of their rating system. For the purpose of understanding how insurance companies actually use your credit score to affect your premium I’m going to go through how the rating system works. The way the rating system works for insurance companies is quite simple actually

At the top is the fiduciary duty under which a party must subordinate his or her own interest to that of the other party. In short, the person under such a duty must behave in a commercially altruistic way or act in ?good faith?. Such a duty will not be common in business relations, though some types of long-term relational contracts, particularly joint ventures, are a more likely place to find

Also Hermione saying ‘mind your business’ could be deemed as wilful obstruction, which is defined as doing anything which makes it more difficult for the police to carry out their job. However, although PC Potter has reasonable suspicion to speak to Hermione, he has not yet put her under arrest so Hermione is within her rights to refuse

The protection offered by the doctrine and the law in general, ensures that each party’s considerations, or promises, are respected and fully binding. It would be deemed as unfair if parties to the contract were allowed to escape liability or fail to honour their promises. There would be no certainty and no guarantee that each party will provide consideration for the other party’s act.

When it happens on a massive scale the community itself is crippled.

In his works - 'Nicomachean Ethics' - he wrote;"The natural is that which is everywhere, is equally valid, and depends not upon being or not being received...that which is natural is unchangeable, and has the same power everywhere.'The Ancient Stoics emphasised the importance of Logos, or rationality, that governs the world and sees human nature as one natural order. They considered natural law as a law of 'right reason'. In his letter to the Romans, St Paul wrote about a law that is 'written in

The aim of this experiment was to test the law of reflection: the angle of incidence equals the angle of reflection. This was done by projecting a ray of light at a flat mirror (ray of incidence) and measuring the angle made by the reflected ray (ray of reflection) and the normal. If the law of reflection is correct the angle between the normal and the ray of incidence and the angle between the normal and the ray of reflection should be the same.Hypothesis. It is predicted that the angle of incidence will equal the angle of reflection no matter what angle we change the ray of incidence to hit the mirror

Universally, human rights are fundamental privileges to which all people have claim. As they are automatic entitlements to each individual who is simply a member of humankind, governments cannot 'grant' or 'withdraw' human rights from anyone. Human rights are reflections of the values of society, with the focal purpose of human rights laws being to set the public standards of what is and what is not acceptable treatment towards individuals, as perceived by society on the domestic and international levels.

How has the law developed on intention?Mens Rea:One of the major elements in culpability is that the accused should have a mental state commensurate with committing the offence. This state is known as mens rea, which can be translated as "guilty mind" or "blameworthy mind". Nearly all criminal offences require a demonstration of mens rea. However, it is unusual to see the term mens rea used in statute; instead statutes use terms like "intend" or "reckless" to express the mental state of the perpetrator. Some offences do not use any such words, and may therefore be interpreted as strict liability offences.In general, for a criminal conviction to succeed there needs to be a demonstration of
