The Olympic Movement, still the foremost international sporting event competition, has had its name tarnished by incidents of corruption and bribery among its committee members. Covering several hosting, there are allegations of candidate cities giving money and gifts to the members to influence their votes and hand over a win for a host city.
These speculations, true or not, are hurting the Olympics image of fair play and integrity, prompting investigations from separate agencies to protect the movement and prevent future attempts. The most infamous corruption to take place in the bidding for the host city is the 2002 Winter Olympics held in Salt Lake City, Utah. Members of the International Olympic Committee (IOC), the governing body of the organization, had accepted money and gifts, scholarships and jobs in the US for their sons and daughters and free medical treatment in the US for other relatives, all expenses charged to the Salt Lake Organizing Committee.
The investigating entities included the IOC and the US Department of Justice. Each one came up with their own findings and recommendations. Heads rolled, leaders resigned and a few were acquitted. But the IOC did not stop there. It made radical reforms to the rules in the bidding process to ensure that wrongdoings will not occur again. This meant travels to candidate cities are restricted and gifts given must only be nominal. The IOC also created an Ethics Commission made up of well-respected, independent and outside members from different countries. FULL POST

It's been more than 3 years since Hurricane Sandy struck the East Coast and devastated the shores of New York and New Jersey, leaving many people without a place to call home. Unfortunately, many homeowners who faithfully paid their flood insurance are still waiting to have their homes restored to livable conditions, and in the meantime they've had no choice but to rent a temporary residence while still having to pay the mortgage and insurance on their damaged homes. However, not everyone was forced into a bad situation by the storm, as reports indicate that the insurance companies raked in an annual average of more than $400 million in profit after the disaster.
Business Owners Better Off Than Homeowners
According to Business Insurance USA, the majority of businesses were able to get back up and running within months of the disaster, despite homes in the surrounding areas still being in need of repair. While workers' compensation, general liability, and commercial auto insurance are three of the most common lines in the industry, a large amount of building and structure coverage was paid out to policyholders following Sandy, allowing many local shops to get back to business in as little as a few weeks after the storm.
