Insurance Business America - Insurance agents, prepare for a new coverage need. Drones—feared for their seeming dominion over the air and the various security nightmares they cause—now have a natural predator (of sorts): the eagle.

Dutch security company Guard From Above has been training eagles specifically to snatch drones from midair.

Vindy.com - The state’s high court is considering arguments in an insurance case involving a vacant, foreclosed Poland home that was damaged by arson several years ago.

Wells Fargo Bank, the mortgage holder, counters that arson amounts to a “fire loss” and should be covered under the homeowner’s insurance policy. Justices must decide whether arson is malicious mischief or vandalism.

At 11:40 a.m. on Jan. 9, two teenagers — a 14-year-old boy and a 16-year-old girl — hid upstairs in a home on Radcliff Drive after hearing noises downstairs, Nashville Fire Department spokesman Brian Haas said Tuesday.

Bloomberg - In Jokkmokk, a tiny hamlet just north of the Arctic Circle in Sweden, where temperatures can dip to 50 below, Volvo Cars’ self-driving XC90 sport-utility vehicle met its match: frozen flakes that caked on radar sensors essential to reading the road. Suddenly, the SUV was blind.“It’s really difficult, especially when you have the snow smoke from the car in front,” said Marcus Rothoff, director of Volvo’s autonomous-driving program. “A bit of ice, you can manage. But when it starts building up, you just lose functionality.”
