New Live Album "Garrin Benfield" Available Now!

Some creative projects are better left unplanned. Sometimes stepping out of the way and letting the music happen without any particular destination in mind produces the most honest results. It is in this spirit of improvisation that Garrin Benfield announces the release of a self-titled live album recorded at a few solo acoustic gigs in the Summer of 2018. 


 “The whole thing feels like kismet to me”, Garrin recalls. “I had been playing a lot of gigs without the addition of the live looping jams, and started to feel like I wanted to document how my unadorned acoustic shows were sounding. I just happened to mention to the engineer at one of the gigs that it would be cool to record the shows, because I loved the way he was mixing them. When he sent me the files, enough time had passed that I had the perspective to hear that these recordings had potential for a release, which we started preparing via email right away.”


Though eclectic in its source material, the album manages to be cohesive in Benfield’s nuanced delivery and in the warm production quality that is a document of how the shows actually sounded.

Property/casualty insurance. Earlier, QuotesChimp touched on first-per�son and third-party losses. Property/casualty (liability) insurance generally covers both. A good example of this is a homeowner's policy, which protects a dwelling from the hazards of fire and other forms of destruction. But homeowner's policies also provide for protection against liability�for example, if your dog bites the mailman. As you will see, this is not the only case where one insurance policy protects against a wide variety of losses. Property and liability insurance will be discussed in Part 2 and Part 4.

Smallish injuries could be very costly, with regards to producer and version of the automobile included. The Insurance Institute for Highway Security lately released a study that compared the fixing costs of reduced-rate (5 miles per hour) failures of smallish fourdoor 1990 automobiles. The expense fluctuated extensively: a Ford Civic DX, when supported right into a post, received $225 worth of harm; a Daihatsu Charade SE supported in precisely the same post might price $ 1,372 to mend. Undoubtedly, greater-quality fenders on QuotesChimp automobiles can deliver farther down the expense of repairscosts which are today compensated with policy contract benefits. Resultingin theoryin reduce rates, with better fender requirements in position,  4; #3 4 & fender-benders; will be removed.

Hedge Funds try to maximize rertun relative to risk.Today that is more true than ever before. Many quantitative fund managers will quote you extremely specific ranges of risk/volatility within which they keep their funds on a daily or hourly basis.Cat bonds would not likely be a welcome addition. The risk from a serious storm is highly asymmetrical (which in and of itself plays games with the assumptions in many risk models), and there is no easy way to hedge that risk.In short, the expected rertun would have to be very impressive indeed for hedge funds to be interested.
