  • How Common Is It For Chinese Engage In Insurance Fraud? I have this example:

    http://www.intertanko.com/upload/BulkCarrierHolt.ppt
    (see slide #27)
    Ship: Golden Dragon
    “Comment: The ropes of the ship were broken as a result of typhoon “Longwang” when berthed in Hualien Harbour and free of cargo. Her main engine stopped and could not be re-started. Subsequently the ship drifted in the outer harbour and finally grounded on the wave breaker and broke in two.”

    What isn’t mentioned is that it is physically impossible for a ship of that size to “drift” from the inner to outer harbor in Hualien, and it wasn’t even in the outer harbor at the time of grounding, it had been taken into OPEN WATER at Nanbin Bay, outside the harbor, it had almost no fuel onboard, and the inner BULKHEADS HAD BEEN CUT WITH A TORCH (I have some photos of this) to ensure it would break up in the typhoon.

    Does anyone have further examples of Chinese “insurance fraud”?

    How To Encourage A Dog To Like Swimming? I have a standard poodle who won’t go near water. standards are water dogs so i would like to encourage this. throwing something in the water doesn’t attract him ether. What are some other ways to get him interested?

    • Curator says:

      Hi Dana!! I am an aquatic therapist and many people with dogs will ask me to work with their dogs in the water. The only way I can see to get them in if they don’t just jump themselves…is to go in with them. What is your poodle doing to let you know he won’t go in? Is he avoiding the pool/lake/body of water altogether? Is he actively pulling away?
      My dog “learned” by watching his buddies swim and play ball in the bay. The only way he could join in was to just do it. It took a while but he did. This is one way of learning…letting your boy watch his friends and try to join them. At the very least watching them will get him to learn that its fun, even if he doesn’t go in the first time.
      The first water my dog was in was a plastic pool. Have you tried that?
      My boy is a little sensitive to noise. He doesn’t like to go into the water at the beach but has no problem in the bay where there are no breakers. Could there be something about the specific place where you are trying that is turning him off?
      if there is no specific reason…the best way to get him in is to try a backyard pool. Either get in yourself or have someone go in and play. Then just leash him up and walk him in. If he balks, don’t correct, just pause (no talking now…give him a chance to process..) and gently but firmly continue. Most dogs will like it once they get in and see that they can, there is no danger and it is even fun. Though I will be honest…my daughters cavalier will NOT go in no matter what I do. I think your poodle would be OK once its a done deal.
      Email me…we can talk some more.
