It was mainly in the form of flyers posted in stores and restaurants. "Signs" might have been too strong a word to use.

Default Actuaries on HGTV

MusicWoman pointed out that on a House Hunters episode on HGTV, the description reads, "Married Actuaries look for a low-risk home with water views, but she wants a quaint cottage with beach-side living, and he hopes for a Spanish-style home with a media room."

The episode takes place in Orange County, CA.

It probably would take two actuarial salaries to afford a beach-side home in Orange County CA.

On the 538 podcast this week they were talking about the healthcare bill and said:

"There's a change where the actuarial value - which is such a horrible term - of the plans...."

LIKE most children born in his particular circumstances, Daniel Raphael was, by his own admission, “caught in a cycle.” It can be a vicious cycle, the articulate young actuarial aspirant said, adding that it brings forth nothing but negative outcomes if care is not taken to break from it.

And for a time, Raphael exhibited the negative, self-limiting behavior, to the point where his father said to him one day, “Son, you are a failure. You will end up in prison or die before your time.” His mother too would voice her disapproval of his early conduct, all the while extolling the wisdom of pursuing a good education.

Today, Daniel is a totally different person. Now in his second year of Actuarial Studies at The University of the West Indies (UWI), he is at the top of his class. Daniel has already passed two of the rigorous professional exams administered by the Society of Actuaries, and has every intention of being admitted as a Fellow of the Society by 2021. ...

"How fitting it is to see actuaries, assessors of risk and uncertainty, at the bottom with the lowest rate."
