There's an abundance of new residential construction on the market in Galveston, which might have something to do with the steady rate of development in recent years.

A report from the Galveston County Daily News reveals the city has issued a steady number of permits since 2010, both commercial and residential. Last year they issued 1,147 permits up from 966 permits issued in 2015.

"We are very much holding steady. It's pretty much consistent with what we've had," director of the city's planning and development services division Tim Tietjens told the outlet.

WITHIN BUDGET: Affordable Galveston homes that offer a charming getaway

In September 2015, Galveston's disaster recovery director John Simsen said 120 Hurricane Ike-destroyed homes would be demolished instead of repaired.

The demolitions were expected to be completed by December 2015, at which point new homes could be built.

At the time, the city had $1.5 million in federal disaster recovery money to use, the Associated Press reported. The process began by tearing down houses that would cost less than $30,000 to remove. Pricier projects would be razed depending on how much of that budget was still left.

Ike ravaged roughly 17,000 homes and businesses in 2008 badly destroyed nearly 1,500 residential properties.

This hotel is located in the city center. Risks and uncertainties outlook for 2017

• The US Federal Reserve ended 2016 on a hawkish note, raising rates and noting US economic strength.

• Although markets are expecting growth to accelerate in 2017, a lot remains uncertain, from fiscal policy to international relations.

• Other factors may be as a headwind to rise.

Could the economy and government be at an inflection point? The US Federal Reserve (Fed) is the first time the US Federal Reserve has made its mark on the United States. US economic growth could accelerate this year: consumer spending is growing at a healthy pace; A survey of the economy's health, "Animal spirits" have awakened since the election, as seen in the stock market's rise.

If optimism translates into additional economic output, both GDP growth and consumer price index inflation could move above the 2.0% to 2.5% baseline expectations. That would lead to higher bond yields and ultimately a more hawkish Fed. Short-to-intermediate US Treasury yields.

The advent of spring in the Lone Star State heralds the arrival of warm weather, vibrant blue skies and blooming bluebonnets. On Galveston Island, this part of the year is known as “Island Time,” when folks from across the state flock here to soak up the sun and relax on the beach. If you’re planning some Island Time of your own, you should know that Galveston is not your average beach town.

Step away from the 32 miles of sun-soaked shores and you’ll discover a place that balances the old and the new with captivating ease. With more than its fair share of surprises and plenty of things to see and do, the possibilities are endless. Read on to discover why you should be on Island Time in Galveston.

1. All the Outdoor Adventure

Galveston may be best known for its sandy beaches, but there’s far more to do here than working on your suntan. Experience the world’s fastest growing sport, stand up paddle boarding and catch a few waves as you take in a view of Seawall Boulevard. Admire the beauty of the Texas Gulf Coast as you kayak through the marshes and bayous of Galveston Island State Park.

Craving an adrenaline rush? Soar 500 feet in the air during a parasailing tour by Caribbean Breeze. For the ultimate heart-pounding experience, go skydiving with Skydive Galveston. Leap from a plane thousands of feet above the island and relish the fantastic view as you parachute down to terra firma. When you need to catch your breath, find a shady spot on the beach and let the cool sea breeze wash over you. After all, you're on Island Time.

2. Frolicking Dolphins

Beach goers aren't the only ones playing in the warm waters of Galveston Bay and the Gulf of Mexico.

Visit Galveston throughout the year and you can also see pods of dolphins swimming and playing, an experience one might typically associate with a Caribbean destination. There's nothing quite like seeing these majestic animals up close, and you can do just that on a dolphin tour. From the deck of BayWatch Dolphin Tour's boat, you'll see these friendly frolickers in their natural habitat. You may even see dolphins during an excursion on Galveston Harbour Tours' multi-deck vessel or on the Galveston Island Ferry. With Galveston Water Adventures’ sunset cruise, you get the bonus of a beautiful sunset.

3. The World’s Tallest Water Coaster

From your starting point 81 feet above ground level, you have just enough time to look down the steep green and white tube before you. Suddenly, your world becomes a blur of sound and color as you’re soaring down ramps and through sense-shifting curved tubes. You may be breathless at the end, and for good reason. You’ve just conquered Schlitterbahn Galveston Island Waterpark’s MASSIV, the tallest water coaster in the world. Ride MASSIV once and you’ll be hooked, but don’t overlook all the other thrill and leisure rides at Schlitterbahn.

4. Majestic Mansions and Enchanting Architecture

In its heyday, Galveston was the “Wall Street of the South,” where prominent businessmen made their fortunes and built grand mansions. Many of these still stand to this day, and you don’t have to go far from the beach to see them. If you only have time to visit one, stop by the most prominent of them all: the 1892 Bishop’s Palace. With a façade of colored stone and a rounded turret topped by a cone-shaped roof, the home is as impressive as it is imposing. On the self-guided tour, you’ll see stained-glass windows, luxurious furnishings and impressive fireplaces fit for a king.

5. Luxurious Getaways, High-End Hotels & Affordable Stays

What’s better than a weekend at the beach? Spending the weekend in a palatial hotel, ofcourse. Galveston has historic and modern hotels that combine upscale accommodations with the kinds of amenities you’d find at full-service resorts, such as swim-up pool bars and rooftop hangouts. Romantic bed and breakfasts provide idyllic retreats for lovebirds, while in-town and beachside vacation rentals are perfect for families and large groups.

On a budget? Galveston has plenty of affordable options that won’t bust your bank account. If you want to get the most bang for your buck, stay midweek and you can save up to 50 percent on your island holiday.

6. A Multitude of Memorable Museums

Did you know that Spanish explorer Cabeza de Vaca once shipwrecked on Galveston Island? Or that pirate Jean Lafitte established a colony on the island that at its peak numbered about 1,000 people? The island’s history is unparalleled, and there is a multitude of museums that showcase it. Pay a visit to The Bryan Museum to browse the largest collection of southwestern artifacts in the world (including the sword used to capture Santa Anna), then step inside beautifully restored locomotives at the Galveston Railroad Museum.

Galveston has its fair share of one-of-a-kind experiences as well. Climb aboard the legendary World War II submarine USS Cavalla and one of the last destroyer escorts in the world, the USS Stewart, both of which are housed in Seawolf Park. Then step on to a retired offshore oil rig at the Ocean Star Offshore Energy Center, where you can learn the ins and outs of oil and gas production and its impact on the Texas Gulf Coast.

7. Craft Beer Made Right on the Island

The craft beer craze is as strong as ever in Texas, and Galveston is certainly no exception. In fact, the island is a playground for beer lovers thanks to its two breweries that crank out a variety of tasty brews. Head to Galveston Island Brewing Company’s tap room to sample beer styles from around the world, including a German-style kolsch, a fruity India Pale Ale, and a silky smooth porter. The other game in town, Beerfoot Brewery, augments its own brews (such as a chai-spiced porter) with a large selection of craft beer from around Texas and the world. Both breweries are located off of Seawall Boulevard, so even as you’re indulging in your beer of choice you won’t ever be too far from the gulf.

8. Palate-Pleasing Seafood and Fine Dining

You’ve spent all day lounging on the beach, kayaking the trails and browsing the museums, so you probably have quite the appetite. Given its diverse dining scene, you’ll find something that will hit the spot. If you’re craving seafood, there are upscale restaurants and straightforward eateries that serve such favorites as jumbo shrimp and red snapper. Yet there’s even more to choose from. Asian, Greek, Italian, Indian and Mexican restaurants abound on the island, offering up a full menu of flavors for even the most discerning palates. Bonus tip: Stop by La King’s Confectionary, an old-fashioned candy shop where you can watch a master candy maker craft taffy, peanut brittle, pecan pralines and fudge.

9. Moody Gardens Will Capture Your Imagination

Observe swimming sharks and playing penguins, get up-close and personal with monkeys and macaws and discover the natural wonders of the world without leaving Galveston Island. These are just a few of the things you’ll see and do in the three glass pyramids at Moody Gardens. This may sound like a lot, but you’re not done yet. Take on the five-tier Sky Trail Ropes Course and soar on the zip line, play a round on the championship golf course and enjoy a cruise on a replica 1800’s paddlewheel boat.

All this adventure in one place means you’d better give yourself plenty of time to experience it all.

10. Galveston’s Nightlife Has Something for Everyone

Whether you prefer getting down on the dance floor or sipping a glass of merlot in an upscale lounge, you’ll find your niche in Galveston. For a beer and some live music, hit up one of the low-key bars in the Strand Historic District or along Seawall Boulevard. In the mood for something more energetic? The Strand has several nightclubs where live DJ’s crank out pulsating tunes that will have you showing off your coolest dance moves. Dress to the nines before heading out to Number 13 or The Rooftop Bar at The Tremont House, where you can nurse a drink while taking in views of Pelican Rest Marina or downtown Galveston.

Once closing time hits, head back to your hotel for a good night’s rest. After all, a new day in Galveston presents even more opportunities.

Bonus: Incredible Sunrises & Sunsets

Even with all of its big-city charm, Galveston is still a coastal town. That means one thing: beautiful sunrises and sunsets. Each day starts and ends with breathtaking shades of orange and pink cast across the sky like paint on a canvas, providing an ideal backdrop for a romantic walk on the beach. Bring your fancy smart phone or your high end camera and wait for the right moment to catch a photo you’ll be proud of. As long as you’re on the beach you’ll have a great view.

Crookslikely to probe the P2P insurer with bogus claims

This is a blog about a blog. It’s also a predictor of thingsto come.

The new insurer Lemonade thinks it has awinning formula. Get rid of agents and most other personnel. Just digitizepolicy sales and claims. It’s part of the bigger trend of peer-to-peer firmsrapidly sprouting in various consumer sectors.

Dennis Jay wrote about Lemonade last week. I’m so fascinatedby the upstart startup’s P2P business model that I had to weigh in with my twocents worth.

Lemonade thinks its formula will lower fraud, blogs boardmember Peter Diamandis.

Policyholders can have underwriting profits donated tononprofits they choose. Insurancebecomes “a social good, rather than a necessary evil.”

People are less likely to try and bilk Lemonade, Diamandiscontends. Why would they defraud the insurer and thus reduce the charitydonations?

Many policyholders likely will be kind-hearted, as I see it.They’ll keep applications, renewals and claims sparkling clean for the good ofthe cause.

Two other classes of insured’s may be less charitable. Firstare the desperate ones. They’re average, everyday people whose finances aresagging. Maybe their home or SUV is near foreclosure, their bank accountnearing empty.

They’ll worry more about saving their own skins than whatmoney Lemonade sends to charity. If they can rifle Lemonade to bail themselvesout with false claims, their adrenalin-addled brains will impel them to pounce.They could, for instance, trash their car and claim it was stolen or wrecked ina hit-and-run.

Then there’s another class: the greedy.

Some of the greedy are everyday people. They’re notdesperate. Many are just opportunists. Maybe they just want to trade up to abigger diamond engagement ring, and tell Lemonade that, sorrow of sorrows, itslipped off the wife’s finger at the beach. Or double the cost of a soundsystem lost in a home fire.

Organized rings are another kind of greedy, often led bydangerous sociopaths. Fraud is their business, a science. They’ll studyLemonade and probe for weaknesses in the application and claims system. Justlike many crime rings test brick-and-mortar insurers when plotting stagedcrashes with mass injury claims.

Professional and amateur criminals look for weaklings toexploit, just like wolf packs stalking elk herds. My bet is they’ll try toinfiltrate Lemonade to see how much juice is for the taking.

Lemonade’s elysian P2P concept will appeal to tech-savvymillennials — and provide another choice in the marketplace. Maybe Lemonadewill inspire traditional insurers to tighten their own operations if they loselarge numbers of customers to its community-minded model.

Meanwhile, this trusting P2P business model likely will betested to the max on the mean streets. Here’s hoping Lemonade’s leadershipgrasp this truth, and develops new innovative firewalls to protect the companyfrom some very smart street criminals.
