Common Misconceptions About Auto Insurance that Drivers Have

PR Newswire

LOS ANGELES, June 24, 2017 /PRNewswire-iReach/ — has released a new blog post presenting common misconceptions drivers have about car insurance.

When it comes to auto insurance, consumers are not well informed and many believe in several myths or have various misconceptions. Staying informed is important when shopping for car insurance. Drivers should know how much they have to invest in a plan and they should also know what type of coverage works best for their vehicles.

The newly released blog post presents several popular misconceptions:

  1. The vehicle’s color influences auto insurance costs. Red sports cars are not expensive to cover because of their color, but because of their value and average repair costs.

  2. It is better not to report minor accidents. There are many drivers who think that if they miss reporting a minor accident, the insurer will not find out and they will not be penalized with more expensive premiums.

  3. It is better to buy a policy from an agent working for a single agency. An agency’s agent will not encourage clients to purchase a plan from competitors. It is better to use online car insurance quotes when shopping for car insurance as it will allow drivers to see which agency has the best coverage rates.

DFO concerned by deaths of endangered North Atlantic Right whales in the Gulf of St. Lawrence

DFO concerned by deaths of endangered North Atlantic Right whales in the Gulf of St. Lawrence

Canada NewsWire

MONCTON, NB, June 24, 2017/CNW/ - Fisheries and Oceans Canada (DFO) is working with marine mammal experts, scientists, and fishery officers from across Atlantic Canada to determine what has caused the recent deaths of several rare North Atlantic Right whales in eastern Canada.

At least five dead Right whales have been seen recently in the Gulf of St. Lawrence. This situation is very concerning. The cause of death is unknown at this time and DFO is committed to finding out what happened to these animals and to protecting this species.

The North Atlantic Right whale is an endangered species in Canada. It is protected under the Canadian Species at Risk Act and the US Marine Mammal Protection Act. The global population is estimated at approximately 500.

DFO has dispatched aerial surveillance planes and Canadian Coast Guard vessels in order to locate, tag and take samples from the whales. To date, satellite tags have been placed on two of the dead whales to track their movement in the water. Extensive samples have been taken from one dead whale including skin, blubber, fecal matter and muscle tissue.

DFO is also looking at the possibility of towing at least one of the carcasses to a location where a necropsy would be conducted.

The priority is to determine why these rare, majestic animals have died. Considering their small population, DFO is committed to doing everything possible to understand what happened to these whales so that preventable whale deaths can be avoided in the future.

DFO is reaching out for assistance from a broad range of expertise from the Marine Animal Response Society, the Canadian Whale Institute and wildlife pathology veterinarians from the Atlantic Veterinary College and the Canadian Wildlife Health Cooperative to find answers. DFO is also working with partners including Transport Canada, Environment and Climate Change Canada, the USA’s National Oceanic Atmospheric Administration (NOAA) (as this is a cross border issue) and commercial area fishermen.

To report dead, injured or entangled marine mammals call 1-866-567-6277 as soon as possible.‎

WASHINGTON, June 24, 2017 /PRNewswire-USNewswire/ — Following is the daily “Profile America” feature from the U.S. Census Bureau:

Profile AmericaSaturday, June 24th. For centuries, the month of June has been the most popular choice for weddings. One of the purported reasons was that some hundreds of years ago, this time was just after May’s annual bath, so the happy couple and the guests were about as clean as could be hoped. With the ensuing advances in plumbing and overall hygiene, dressy weddings are readily staged year-round, from simple civil ceremonies and backyard or back-to-nature vows, to elaborate church functions. Each year, there are more than 2.1 million weddings across the nation. Americans are marrying at older ages — the median age at first marriage for women is now 27.8— up five years since 1980. Men are now an average age of 29.7 when they first take their vows. You can find more facts about America from the U.S. Census Bureau online at
