You may have seen some of the articles in the press this year on the subject of Phantom Jams, which, unfortunately have nothing to do with ghost cars.
These are the traffic jams that appear, seemingly from nowhere, and gradually propagate backwards down the road. All of a sudden, these seem to have attracted the attention on mathematicians, who are publishing papers on the phenomenon at an alarming rate.
First Bristol University published the results of an investigation they had conducted on the M42 near Birmingham, utilising the huge numbers of cameras on that particular motorway (Yes, the ones that monitor and enforce the variable speed limits.) Their aim is to improve mathematical models of these jams, so that more accurate forecasts of journey times can be made.
There are so many studies and research papers out about car insurance at the moment that it is difficult to keep up with them all. So many have caught my eye but one I want to comment on today revealed that men were more likely to have comprehensive car insurance than women. This surprised me but not as much as the figures did when it got to the part about comprehensive taxi insurance policies.
Apparently, more and more taxi drivers, male and female alike, are looking to save money on their taxi insurance and so are asking for extras to be left off or are simply choosing not to have a policy as comprehensive as they may have had before.
Study USA insurance is an essential purchase for any international student visiting the U.S. It makes getting healthcare coverage during your time in the United States much easier and more affordable; however, students should be advised it does not cover every type of medical problem.
For instance, study USA insurance programs are primarily designed to offer students coverage on items that would either be classified as emergency care or procedures that must be undergone. So vision exams, hearing exams, eyeglasses, contact lenses, birth control, and cosmetic procedures are not covered by these policies.
Addtionally, pre-existing conditions are also not covered. Read more…

A supermarket comparison research by a leading car insurance provider in the UK revealed that men have more likelihood to purchase comprehensive car insurance covers for their vehicles. The company also advised car insurance customers about the advantages of a comprehensive car insurance policy for their cars.
The research suggests that out of the total men drivers, 58 percent were having a comprehensive car cover, while for women, this figure was only 44 per cent. With these findings, the insurance company throws some light on the importance of a comprehensive cover in the event of car thefts, accidents or sudden car breakdowns.
For some reasons, people need to make loan. Even if it is like burden and so embarrassing, but people do not have other option since there is not enough budget anymore. If you do not want to be burdened by loans and interest, you can choose to apply for short term loans.
One type of popular short term loan is pay day loan. The term pay day means the duration of your maturity loan date. So, you need to repay the money and interest, approximately one month after given the loan or on your next payday or salary date. This loan is so easy to get, since it is available in internet. To apply for it, you must be 18 years old in minimum.
The applicant must also have permanent jobs and variable income every month.
Now the About.com Personal Insurance site has its own designated gap insurance resource center. Gap insurance is a popular topic here on the personal insurance site, so I wanted to expand a special area for it.

I have more gap insurance articles planned so check back in the future for additional gap insurance information.
Even as lawmakers in Washington DC attempt to reconcile the House and Senate versions of the new auto safety bill, it appears that the auto industry is experiencing an epidemic of recalls. Is this because late model vehicles are having more problems, or is the industry seeing the proverbial “handwriting on the wall”?
What’s Being Recalled?
Justice News Flash reports that almost 1.5 million GM cars built between 2006 and 2009 are being recalled because of an electrical problem related to the vehicle’s heated washer-fluid system that may cause fires. Accordi
What type of life insurance coverage we should have is a hotly debated topic amongst insurance agents and financial planners. There are many different kinds of life insurance available, ranging from the very simple term life insurance, in which your loved ones are paid a set sum of money if you die during the term while your policy is in force, to more complex cash value policies, some of which are tied to investment programs.
While there are dozens of variations on the main themes, life insurance comes in two basic flavors: permanent and temporary. Permanent insurance comes with names like Whole Life, Universal Life, and Variable Life.
