Man Brings 300 Stray Animals To His Home, Protects Them From Hurricane Delta

Published

on

Hurricane Delta put everyone on high alert, including Ricardo Pimentel. He works in an animal sanctuary called Tierra de Animales. He knew that he needed to protect the animals living there, so Ricardo did everything he could to ensure their safety during the hurricane.

However, Ricardo knew that all the animals wouldn’t fit in the shelter and that the building wasn’t hurricane-proof, so he took the dogs, the cats, and other animals and brought them into his own home. There were about 300 animals in his house during the hurricane. Ricardo had a lot of food and other necessities prepared for the animals, so everything went smoothly.

The massive hurricane in Mexico recently devastated a lot of people. It formed on October 5, 2020, and dissipated October 12, 2020. At one point, it was as fast as 145 mph (230 km/h). It was also one of the biggest hurricanes to ever hit the United States.

He told Bored Panda: “Those 300 dogs that I took into my house are some of the ones that already live at Tierra de Animales. It’s just that we don’t have enough hurricane-proof shelters for all the dogs, so to keep them safe from that, we decided to put them in the house.”

“They were very well-behaved all night during the meteorological phenomenon. They are all spayed and neutered, vaccinated, and dewormed. Almost all of them are ready to be adopted.”

His house was filled with dogs of all shapes and sizes

“I have been rescuing animals almost all my life since I was a kid, and I founded Tierra de Animales 9 years ago. We not only rescue dogs, but also cats, turtles, iguanas, cows, sheep, goats, pigs, horses, donkeys, etc.”

Soon, there were about 300 of them

“We work with the help of people from all over the world, who donate whatever they can. Of course, after all the damage that the hurricane Delta left behind, we need more help than ever, especially because we are going to build more and better shelters for all the animals of the sanctuary.”

Ricardo shared the photographs of the animals safely waiting in his home and they quickly went viral. People were calling him a hero and sending Ricardo and the animals love, support, and donations.

There were not only dogs that needed saving but cats, goats, and chickens—no one was left behind

Why an ‘active’ approach to risk modelling is key to navigating markets today

Published

on

By

Whether investors are aiming for a cautious approach or a riskier investment profile with the potential for higher returns, Architas’ Blended Fund range is designed to match a range of investor risk appetites. And like many asset managers, Architas predominantly uses two approaches to define asset allocation within the five risk bands used in the Blended Range – strategic and tactical.

Whilst risk model provider EValue’s quantitative approach to asset allocation takes into account the long-term performance of different asset classes and the likely future performance given current valuations, along with long-term measures of volatility and correlations with other asset classes. Yet as with most systems of its kinds, EValue focuses on the long term; it is unable to analyse short-term market movements and fluctuations. So whilst it would have seen that in Q1 2020 markets fell by a record percentage before rebounding, it will not be able to factor in the cost of the coronavirus and lockdown and its impact on markets. Similarly, it is not able to consider ongoing Brexit woes, geo-political trade wars or the outcome of the US election in 2020.
