Friday Fun: Bring Back The Sun

Inevitably the school holidays start and the children are back at home for the 6 weeks of summer and the first thing that happens is it rains! What do you do… You can’t exactly send them outside to play in the rain and unless they are little they seem to be glued to the TV or computer.

Since we aren’t miracle workers here and can’t bring the sun back we thought we would bring you some top tips for how to find things for your children to do using your social networks.

My favourite resource for this is actually Pinterest because so many parents have had the same issue and the best of the resources have been pinned so many times that they come to the surface really easily.  So your first point of call is to do a Pinterest search for rainy day activities.  Just remember to try and give an age approximation – 18 month old, toddler, teenager etc. that way you will find the most appropriate pins.

Sometimes just browsing through your Facebook profile helps as you may see other parents have done some activities that you could do with your children. Make sure you like or leave a comment so that you can find these again another day. (You can always use the digi.me search feature to find them again then. Facebook search doesn’t tend to be much help unfortunately)

I don’t tend to find Twitter that useful for finding ideas and activities unless I ask my followers.  Sometimes it is just worth asking people to see what things they come up with.  Maybe ask what activities they did as a child on a rainy day.  That always comes back with some great suggestions.

What top tips do you have for those wet and rainy summers days when the children are full of energy…

  1. 1. 獨立基金的資產屬於保單持有人, 保險公司只是負責管理, 為何獨立基金的資產按市價入帳會影響宏利本身的損益表?2. 宏利的投資組合主要為可供出售金融資產(Available for Sale), 公允價值變動而產生的盈虧, 正常情況只會在資產負債表中確認, 為何會影響當期損益表?#1 & #2Assuming MFC’s guarantee to the peryciholdols is $100, the segregated fund drops from $100 to $80. From MFC’s point of view, the difference between the guarantee and the segregated fund is MFC’s liabilities. In other words, the liabilities will increase from $0 to $20 ($100 guarantee – $80 segregated fund value). The liabilities can also be considered as reserve. Any change in reserve need to reflect in the income statement. In a word, when the assets value of segregated fund drops, the difference between guaranteed value and segregated fund value, or reserves, increases. The increase in reserve are to be reflected in the income statement and thus earning drops.4. 美國會計準則同樣需要對資產按市價入帳 為何同一盤生意 按加拿大會計準則會得出巨額虧損的結果 而採用美國會計準則卻錄得盈利 USGAAP basically is not a good indicator to measure the earnings of insurance companies. There are many accounting items to smooth the earnings or to spread the loss over a long period.
