There are more than 18,000 people connected to First Link. Parliamentary Secretary for Seniors, Dix and Anne Kang, made the announcement ahead of joining the Investors Group Walk for Alzheimer’s in Vancouver, to show support for British Columbians facing dementia.“The support of a community can go a long way in helping people with dementia and their families,” Kang said. “First Link is an important resource for connecting them to support groups and fitness and social programs, and helping ensure that they are acknowledged, supported and included.”The Alzheimer Society of B.C. runs several programs to support and educate people living with dementia and their families. These include First Link and Minds in Motion, a fitness and social program open to people in the early stages of dementia and their care partners, where they can participate in light exercise, fun activities and social time.“The Alzheimer Society of B.C. is grateful for the B.C. Ministry of Health’s commitment to British Columbians living with dementia,” said Maria Howard, chief executive officer of the Alzheimer Society of B.C. “This funding for First Link dementia support is vital for ensuring that people affected by the disease have access to programs and services that will help them build the confidence and skills to live as well as possible.”According to the government. supporting First Link is part of the commitment to strengthen the supports and services available to seniors. Government is investing $1.048 billion by 2021 to improve care for seniors, including investments in primary care, home health, residential care and assisted living.

    by Kaitlin Lee Posted May 13, 2015 7:09 am MDT Thinkstock Stamps season ticket sales up, despite oil slump AddThis Sharing ButtonsShare to TwitterTwitterShare to FacebookFacebookShare to RedditRedditShare to 電子郵件Email The Calgary Stampeders are still riding high after the Grey Cup win last season, and it’s showing in the upcoming season’s ticket sales.Officials say rumours struggling oil companies have dropped their Stamps seats are simply not true.Stampeders President Gordon Norrie says they haven’t felt the economic slowdown one bit.“We’ve got 2110 absolute brand new season ticket holders, and we’re up at this point in time, about 3200 over last year,” he said.Norrie says they’ve had a significant number of group sales.“Oil companies are part of that fold and every year, you know, we lose some, and then we gain some, but we haven’t felt anything extraordinary associated with economic pullback,” he said.He says the boost can also be attributed to great leadership, player performance, and improvements to MacMahon Stadium.Something for fans to look forward to this year: the paving of the north end zone, where 250 spectators will be able to enjoy games from field level.Norrie adds there are still some great season tickets up for grabs. read more

  • Draft Broadcast legislation Forcing Private broadcasters to air free 1 hour

    – Chairman says complaints can be lodged with GNBA to determine if its a Public Service Announcement (PSA) Local broadcasters – both private and public – will now be compelled to air, without charge, Government’s public service announcements (PSAs) during a certain time frame according to the draft Broadcast legislation.However, broadcast agencies which have issues with any PSA have recourse to the regulator, the Guyana National broadcasting Authority (GNBA).GNBA Chairman Leslie SobersGNBA Chairman Leslie Sobers has however dispelled any suggestion that, in arbitrating between private entities and the Government, the GNBA board may issue biased judgements. “I see no reason why it should be misconstrued that GNBA would be biased, because GNBA would not be.The people who would have a problem would be the particular ministry and agency that was requesting that the broadcasting house air a particular thing that they consider a Public Service Announcement,” he said.Sobers said that, for example, should the Ministry of Public Infrastructure present something to a radio station or a studio for airing, and the thing involves the public interest but as far as the broadcaster is concerned it does not sound like a Public Service Announcement nor does it look like a Public Service Announcement, that broadcaster can approach the GNBA with a complaint.Sobers said that in arbitrating in cases of this nature, the GNBA would adhere to a strict understanding of what constitutes a public service announcement (PSA).“We would now have to examine whether the content of the particular agency’s (broadcast request) really and truly falls under a public service announcement (PSA). And if it does not, we will advise (the Ministry or agency) that they have to pay (to have the announcement broadcasted). And if (the PSA is really a PSA), then we will advise the studio that this really is a public service announcement.”The GNBA is appointed by the President, but, by statute, one member of the board must be nominated by the political opposition.According to the Broadcasting Act of 2011 Section 18, 1 (f), the GNBA can “require licensees to carry information on any programmes issued by the Civil Defence Commission, the Guyana Police Force, Guyana Fire Service and/or health services, and certain other programmes as public information deemed appropriate and necessary in terms of national security, emergency, and disaster, as a public service at no cost.”The legislation also stipulates that the GNBA can “require licensees to carry a certain percentage of public service broadcast, or development support broadcast, as public information deemed appropriate as a public service at no cost.”According to Sobers, this regulation would apply to radio and television stations, as well as cable service providers. This, he said, would basically mean anyone with a broadcasting licence.According to reports in the state media, the new draft legislation being prepared would see broadcast agencies being mandated to broadcast public service programmes for a total of up to one hour daily. Broadcast agencies will be airing these public service programmes free of cost and as requested by the Government between the hours of 06:00am and 10:00pm (6:00hrs and 22:00hrs).It is also stated that the GNBA reserves the right to direct a broadcasting agency to broadcast emergency notices or disaster warnings for any length of time, and regularly during peak or prime advertising time periods, depending on the nature of the emergency and having regard to public safety.A broadcaster has the right to file a complaint with the GNBA within 24 hours of being asked to broadcast a programme free of cost if, in the agency’s judgment, it is not considered a public service broadcast programme.The GNBA, according to the draft provisos, “shall investigate and determine a complaint, and issue a ruling that the programme can be reasonably considered a public service broadcast programme, and direct the broadcasting agency to air the programme free of cost”.Further, the broadcaster can “be granted an interim order to broadcast the announcement as a public service broadcast programme; and where the programme is not so considered, as provided in Section 9 (a) above, the GNBA can order payment of regular programme cost for broadcasting the said programme.”But there is also a warning: Provision is made for sanctions to be levied on any broadcaster the GNBA finds to have “arbitrarily refused” to broadcast a public service broadcast programme without lodging a complaint. The GNBA can, after deliberation, deem that broadcaster to be in breach of his/her licence.

  • Aus Tin kicks off Granville East mining with highgrade block

    first_imgAus Tin Mining says tin mining has commenced at its Granville East mine in Tasmania, Australia.Run of mine material from the first mining block – estimated to total some 430 t – will be transported to the processing plant enabling plant feed to transition from low‐grade stockpiles to high‐grade mine material, Aus Tin said.The first mining block is located at the southern end of the open pit and was extracted from the hangingwall shale that overlies the cassiterite-magnetite skarn, Aus Tin said.Assay results from blasthole samples collected for grade control purposes have confirmed the high‐grade mineralisation at Granville East, Aus Tin said. These included intersections of 4 m at 6.56% Sn and 4 m at 4.34% Sn.Aus Tin CEO, Peter Williams, said: “We are delighted to have achieved this major milestone as we transition to Level 2 operations and will now move to processing this material. We are particularly delighted with the grade of the first block, which across eight holes averaged 2.1% Sn and is more typical of underground mines.”Aus Tin said it has been seeking to directly procure certain services contracted to its civil and mining contractor.“To minimise further delays to the operations, the company has now assumed additional components of the contract, including blasting services and fuel supply,” Aus Tin said. “Furthermore, the company has removed the crushing component of the contract and is currently in discussions with alternative parties as well as examining capacity for utilising surplus equipment at the processing plant.”Aus Tin shipped its first tin concentrate from Granville back in 2017, and has been working on developing a “Level 2” operation at East Granville at the same time.last_img read more

  • Let Dogs Be Dogs Ground Scratching Behavior Nothing to Worry About

    first_img If you own a dog—or have so much as walked through a public park—you’ve probably seen some odd behavior. Like pups’ penchant for pawing at the soil after they pee.But what can this “ground scratching” behavior (aptly named by veterinary experts) tell us about man’s best friend? A lot, according to Live Science, which reported on research about the canine quirk.Thinking about introducing a furry friend to the family? Don’t worry. Unlike going to heaven, not all dogs perform this messy ritual.“It appears to occur equally in males and females, but only around 10 percent of dogs do it,” Rosie Bescoby, a clinical animal behaviorist with the UK’s Association of Pet Behavior Counsellors, told Live Science.Those that do, however, are often triggered by specific situations—voiding their bladder, entering new areas with unfamiliar smells, detecting another hound’s poop.The unfortunate trait seems to run in the family: According to Live Science, wolves and coyotes, as well as other tail wagging mammals (including lions), have similar habits.Dogs’ canid cousins, wolves live in packs, “so it’s related to their social natures,” Carlo Siracusa, a veterinary behaviorist at the University of Pennsylvania School of Veterinary Medicine, said.“The dominant animals in the pack tend to show this behavior to delimit their territory,” he continued, explaining previous studies. “So, what they’re presumably doing is trying to send messages to other wolves that, if they cross this line, they might be attacked.”The behavior is directed at strangers, not ride-or-die mates.“This is the theory behind it: Either you see me doing it, you see the dirt that has been moved, or you smell my scent,” Siracusa said in a statement to Live Science.Domestic pets do the same, assigning a visual (scratches) or scent (pee) mark on the ground. Though this may be more a show of “here I am!” than “stay away or else.”It remains unclear whether other dogs actually pick up on these cues—which Siracusa has (anecdotally) associated with anxious animals.No matter the logic, this is entirely natural behavior, Siracusa emphasized; owners should simply let their dog get on with it, and try not worry. Unless, of course, your pooch is (unintentionally!) digging up your neighbor’s garden.Let us know what you like about Geek by taking our survey.

Medina – September 14, 2019 Borussia Dortmund winger Jadon Sancho might be the perfect player to play for the Gunners, according to former England international Paul Merson.“But I had friends and some of the family sending me videos on the underground before the game against Stoke where they were singing this song.”“It was crazy to hear and I was really, really happy because it was the first time the fans had a song for me.

  • Trump picks Canada envoy Kelly as UN ambassador

    first_imgIn this file photo taken on 19 July 2017, US ambassador to Canada nominee Kelly Craft on Capitol Hill in Washington, DC. President Donald Trump said Friday, 22 February 2019 he is nominating Kelly Knight Craft, his envoy to Canada, to be the next US ambassador to the United Nations and succeed Nikki Haley. Photo: AFPPresident Donald Trump said Friday he is nominating Kelly Craft, his envoy to Canada, to be the next US ambassador to the United Nations.”Kelly has done an outstanding job representing our Nation and I have no doubt that, under her leadership, our Country will be represented at the highest level,” Trump said in a pair of tweets announcing his pick.If confirmed by the US Senate, she would fill the post that has been vacant since Nikki Haley, a former South Carolina governor and rising star in the Republican Party who stepped down from the UN job late last year.Craft was nominated one week after Trump’s previous choice, former Fox News anchor and State Department spokeswoman Heather Nauert, withdrew from consideration amid criticism that she lacked the experience for one of the top diplomatic posts.Secretary of State Mike Pompeo offered quick praise for the nominee.”Ambassador Craft has been an outstanding advocate for America’s national security and economic interests in Canada and she is extremely well-qualified to do the same at the United Nations,” he said in a statement.Craft was a major supporter of George W. Bush, who as president appointed her to serve as a US delegate to the United Nations, representing Washington at UN meetings.The businesswoman from Kentucky, believed to be 56-years-old, has been a major Republican donor.She raised eyebrows in 2017 as the new US ambassador in Ottawa — and the first woman in that post — when she said she believes “both sides” of climate science.”I think that both sides have their own results, from their studies, and I appreciate and I respect both sides of the science,” Craft told the Canadian Broadcasting Corporation.She is married to Joe Craft, who is president of Alliance Resource Partners, which describes itself as the second largest coal producer in the eastern United States.Joe Craft was worth an estimated $1.4 billion in 2012, according to Forbes magazine.Open Secrets, a non-profit group that tracks money in politics, says Craft donated $1 million to Trump’s 2017 inauguration fund.He also donated $371,100 to candidates, all Republicans, during the 2018 election cycle, the organisation said.last_img read more

  • Moffat Theres Always a Chance for Rivers Return

    first_img HBO Max Scores Exclusive ‘Doctor Who’ Streaming RightsJo Tro Do Plo Plo No: ‘Doctor Who’ Welcomes Back Familiar Monster ***Spoilers***Doctor Who showrunner Steven Moffat this week tipped the return of River Song—maybe.In the latest issue of Doctor Who Magazine, Moffat answers a fan’s question, “Do you feel that River Song’s story is done?”, with classic Moffat misdirection.“Well, yes, that does seem like the end to me. Except, of course, it isn’t, and can’t be,” he said. “There’s always the chance that River will show up again, at some other point in her timeline, with a stolen camel, seven more husbands, and a nuclear submarine.”Just don’t expect the saucy archaeologist to ride in on two humps anytime soon.“For me, I think, I’m done,” Moffat admitted.Played to a T by Alex Kingston (ER), River first appears in the 2008 two-parter “Silence in the Library”/”Forest of the Dead,” which subsequently mark the Doctor’s first meeting with River and River’s last meeting with the Doctor.The actor’s last appearance, though—thanks to some wibbly-wobbly, timey-wimey stuff—is in the 2015 Christmas special, “The Husbands of River Song,” in which the Doctor takes River for one final date on Darillium and gives her the sonic screwdriver she uses in “Forest of the Dead.”“Back when I thought I might be leaving at the end of 2015, I specifically planned [that] scene as my goodbye—bringing everything full circle, to the moment (in “Forest of the Dead”) just before I took over,” Moffat said.A time traveler herself, River’s adventures with the Doctor and his companions occur out of sync—from her conception and birth to regenerations and graduation to the assassination of the Doctor. You’ll need to sneak a peek at her TARDIS-themed diary for all the juicy details.This isn’t the end of River Song, though. Whether or not she reappears in Moffat’s final season, the character features in some audio adventures from Big Finish (The Diary of River Song: Series 2 launched last month with Kingston and former Doctors Colin Baker and Sylvester McCoy).And, there is also a chance showrunner-in-waiting Chris Chibnall will find new stories to tell about River starting in 2018.“Any reason to get Alex Kingston back in action is a good one,” Moffat said.

  • What matters on an engineering resume Hacker Rank report says skills not

    first_imgPutting together an engineering resume can be a real headache. What should you include? How can you best communicate your experience and skills? Software engineers are constantly under pressure to deliver new projects and fix problems while learning new skills. Documenting the complexity of developer life in a straightforward and marketable manner is a challenge to say the least. Luckily, hiring managers and tech recruiters today recognize just how difficult communicating skill and competency in an engineering resume can be. A report by Hacker Rank revealed that the things that feature on a resume aren’t that highly valued by recruiters and hiring managers. However, skills does remain top of the agenda: the question, really, is about how we demonstrate and communicate those skills. The quality of your previous experience matters on an engineering resume Hacker Rank found that hiring managers and tech recruiters value previous experience over everything else. 77% of survey respondents said previous experience was one of the 3 most important qualifications before a formal interview. In second place was years of experience with 46%. The difference between the two is subtle but important; it’s offers a useful takeaway for engineers creating an engineering resume. Essentially, the quality of your experience is more important than the quantity of your experience. You need to make sure you communicate the details of your employment experiences. It sounds obvious but it’s worth stating: applying for an engineering job isn’t just a competition based on who has the most experience. You should explain the nature of the projects you are working on. The skills you used are essential, but being clear about how the project supported wider strategic or tactical goals is also important. This demonstrates not only your skills, but also your contextual awareness. It suggests to a hiring manager or recruiter you not only have the competence, but that you are also a team player with commercial awareness. Certifications aren’t that important on your resume One of the most interesting insights from the Hacker Rank report was that both hiring managers and recruiters don’t really care about certifications any more. Less than 16% listed it as one of the 3 most important things they look at during the recruitment process. Does this mean, then, that the certification is well and truly over? At this stage, it’s hard to tell. But it does point to a wider cultural change that probably has a lot to do with open source. Because change is built into the reality of open source software, certifications are never going to be able to keep up with what’s new and important. The things you learned to pass one year will likely be out of date the next. It probably also says something about the nature of technical roles today. Years ago, engineers would start a job knowing what they were going to be using. The toolchains and tech stacks would be relatively stable and consistent. In this context, certification was like a license, proving you understood the various components of a given tool or suite of tools. But today, it’s more important for engineers to prove that they are both adaptable and capable of solving a range of different problems. With that in mind, it’s essential to demonstrate your flexibility on your engineering resume. Make it clear that you’re able to learn new things quickly, and that you can adapt your skill set to the problems you need to solve. You don’t need to look good on paper to get the job… but it’s going to help Hacker Rank’s research also revealed that 75% of recruiters and hiring managers have hired people they initially thought didn’t look good on paper. But that doesn’t necessarily mean you should stop working on your resume. If anything, what this shows is that if you get your resume right, you could really catch someone’s attention. You need to consider everything in your resume. Traditional resumes have a pretty clear structure, whatever job you’re applying for, but if Hacker Rank’s research tells us anything, it’s that a an engineering resume requires a slightly different approach. Personal projects are more important than your portfolio on an engineering resume A further insight from Hacker Rank’s report suggests one way you might adopt a different approach to your resume. Responding to the same question as the one we looked at above, 37% said personal projects were one of the 3 most important factors in determining whether to invite a candidate to interview. By contrast, only 22% said portfolio. This seems strange – surely a portfolio offers a deeper insight into someone’s professional experience. Personal projects are more like hobbies, right? Personal projects actually tell you so much more about a candidate than a portfolio. A portfolio is largely determined by the work you have been doing. What’s more, it’s not always that easy to communicate value in a portfolio. Equally, if you’ve been badly managed, or faced a lack of support, your portfolio might not actually be a good reflection of how good you really are. Personal projects give you an insight into how a person thinks. It shows recruiters what makes an engineer tick. In the workplace your scope for creativity and problem solving might well be limited. With personal projects you’re free to test out ideas try new tools. You’re able to experiment. So, when you’re putting together an engineering resume, make sure you dedicate some time outlining your personal projects. Consider these sorts of questions: Why did you start a project? What did you find interesting? What did you learn? Engineering skills still matter Just because the traditional resume appears to have fallen out of favor, it doesn’t mean your skills don’t matter. In fact, skill matters more than ever. For a third of hiring managers, skill assessments are the area they want to invest in. This would allow them to judge a candidate’s competencies and skills much more effectively than simply looking at a resume. As we’ve seen, things like personal projects are valuable because they demonstrate skills in a way that is often difficult. They not only prove you have the technical skills you say you have, they also provide a good indication of how you think and how you might approach solving problems. They can help illustrate how you deploy those skills. And when its so easy to learn how to write lines of code (no bad thing, true), showing how you think and apply your skills is a sure fire way to make sure you stand out from the crowd.

  • From Curri to China Irene Aguilar talks traveling and studying performing arts

    first_img Stairway to Heaven in China. Photo courtesy of Irene Aguilar Photo courtesy of Irene AguilarI even remember this one time, when I had just arrived in China. I was having too many problems with my passport and just settling in. I was feeling alone and got sick in a hotel. I had to make a big effort to take myself to the hospital because I was feeling awful. While I was there, I just started to cry. After that experience, for some reason, I felt capable of doing it on my own. It made me a lot stronger. That does not have anything to do with a particular place, but the whole experience of getting here is what I can call life-changing.What are the main differences between Ticos and Chinese?In Costa Rica, we are big-time procrastinators. In China, when you know that you have to get something done, you do it as soon and as efficiently as possible. That’s really the only way to keep up with how this country works.Also, feeling safe. In China, you could be a woman taking the subway at midnight. You could be walking down the street with any type of clothes, and no one would scream vulgar phrases about your body.What are some places in Asia that you’d recommend to every traveler?The Stairway to Heaven. I knew that place was going to be exceptional, but once I got there it exceeded all my expectations. Also, the temples. I have lost count of how many temples I have visited, but they still amaze me every time I visit them. The elephant’s sanctuaries in Thailand. Most of the elephants that live there have been rescued from circuses or places where people pay to ride them. In these sanctuaries, they roam free, with no chains and no violence. Facebook Comments Irene Aguilar, 29, has been living in China for the past five years and says she’s still not ready to come back to Costa Rica.Aguilar went to study art and stayed for the fast-paced rhythm, effective transportation, and safe streets. She says that as soon as she arrived in China, she noticed how efficient everything is there.“You can purchase things just using your cell phone without taking cards or cash with you. And the technological field keeps growing more each day,” Aguilar said. She also likes how well the economy is doing and how her salary easily matches most of her expenses.Aguilar grew up in Curridabat and practiced cello since she was 7 years old. Her parents always wanted Aguilar and her siblings to take classes and learn new skills. Aguilar then started taking acting lessons in ninth grade and quickly realized it was the best part of her week.After high school, she decided to pursue a career in the performing arts. Aguilar got her degree at the Universidad Nacional and took Chinese as an elective. She took her learning seriously and her teacher recommended some Mandarin scholarships.Aguilar then traveled to China for the first time on a nine-month scholarship. Aguilar enjoyed the culture shock and took a bus to Hunan’s capital, Changsha, and started asking about scholarships at local universities.Aguilar finally got a spot at Hunan Normal University’s art, film, and television master’s program. She says to get a scholarship like hers, all you have to do is follow the steps and go through a few interviews. Aguilar added that the information you need about available scholarships is on the Casa Amarilla website.Aguilar graduated from her master’s program this year and she’s full of hopes of future trips around Asia, as well as projects related to her career. Photo courtesy of Irene AguilarWhat did you enjoy most about your master’s program in China?There are a lot of things I enjoyed a lot. I even have a list. When it comes to my master’s, like going to classes and that type of stuff, it was a fact that at some point I was able to interact with my classmates and teachers fluently.But the beginning was hard. I had to take two semesters of Chinese, and it was still not enough. I had to record all my classes and go to my dorm to listen to them a couple of times. Once I was finally able to understand what was going on in classes and around me in general, everything changed. I was the only foreigner in the classroom, being able to exchange feelings and thought with my classmates was certainly interesting.The second part that I enjoyed the most, was just living in China. I know it sounds cliché but it is true. Just being able to call it your home and visit all these beautiful places is great. When you can take part in their culture, you feel different. Not only for their big events and celebrations but also daily life in China. Small things like being able to talk to someone while taking the subway or while buying something at the market.Before getting your scholarship to study abroad, did you ever have a clear goal when traveling?I always knew I wanted to travel. I did some traveling before this China experience, and it just made me want to keep doing it. Now that I have traveled to several places around Asia, I am absolutely sure that I want to keep traveling.With this master’s program, you are not allowed to work, so I had a lot of free time to visit places. What I would do was just save as much money as possible and then make long trips to other cities. I really hope I can continue traveling because I think this lifestyle is a like medicine. Traveling is one of those things that the more you do it, the more you like it. It opens your mind and changes you for the best.Was there a life-changing place that you visited in Asia?Well, the first place would have to be China. This is the place where I got to meet a lot of new people from different backgrounds and countries. You become more empathic and comprehensive.To be honest, I am so dramatic, and over the top with my emotions and feelings about this experience that I think every place I have visited in Asia has changed me in some way. In every place that you visit you can smell, see, hear, or touch something new. All of these small details are what make you change while traveling from one place to another.

  • Economists Review Progress on Road to Recovery

    first_imgEconomists Review Progress on Road to Recovery The housing market has made great strides in recovering from the problems that ail it, but there are still major improvements that have to occur before it’s back up to full health, “”Freddie Mac””:http://www.freddiemac.com/ said Thursday in its latest Economic and Housing Market Outlook.[IMAGE]The GSE’s “”January outlook””:http://www.freddiemac.com/finance/docs/Jan_2014_public_outlook.pdf focuses on four things the market needs to see before it can say the crisis is well and truly behind it: a healthy jobs market, mortgage delinquencies back down to historical averages, home prices that are consistent with payment-to-income ratios, and home sales more in line with historical norms.Thankfully, all of these indicators are moving in the right direction–but they’re not where they need to be just yet, say Freddie Mac economists Frank Nothaft and Leonard Kiefer.*A Healthy Jobs Market*Unemployment remains “”stubbornly high,”” the economists say, and December’s jobs report–which showed the unemployment rate falling as a result of more Americans giving up on work–wasn’t encouraging.Nevertheless, jobless numbers continue to move in the right direction, bringing them closer to what most economists agree is a good long-run rate: between 5 and 6 percent.With labor markets moving at their current pace, Freddie Mac predicts it will be another two years before the country is back to “”full employment.””[COLUMN_BREAK]*Normal Mortgage Delinquencies*Since rocketing up in the Great Recession, serious delinquency rates (now around 5.88 percent) have fallen by about half, but they remain well above the long-term normal average of about 2 percent, Nothaft and Kiefer say.””With continued improvement in the labor market, and increasing house prices, the delinquency rate should continue to fall, but will not be back to normal levels for some time,”” they said.*Home Prices Consistent with Incomes*As demonstrated in the build-up to the crash, rapid home price gains paired with meager increases to income create an unsustainable environment. Since mortgage rates have a big impact on monthly payment amounts, the two economists used rate levels as a gauge for how affordability has changed:””From 1999-2006, mortgage payments on [a] hypothetical 30-year fixed mortgage increased by 50 percent more than income growth in large part because of rapid house-price appreciation. Currently, payment-to-income ratios are only 60 percent of the level we had in 1999 suggesting fixed-rate loans will generally remain manageable for a typical family’s budget even with some additional increases in mortgage rates and house prices in 2014.””*Solid Home Sales*Historically, the economists say, home sales have averaged about 6 percent of the nation’s single-family housing stock at an annual rate. That figure climbed up to 9 percent during the housing boom before plummeting down to around 4 percent. At 2014’s expected sales pace of 5.8 million, they say the rate should rise up to 5.7 percent.However, with all-cash sales accounting for a relatively large share of sales activity, the originations picture still looks muted.So what does the big picture look like?””The housing market hasn’t fully recovered and has a good ways to go, but it is moving in the right direction,”” the economists conclude. “”Moreover, some markets are recovering faster than others and the home sales recovery is likely to slow with mortgage rates moving higher.”” in Data Agents & Brokers Attorneys & Title Companies Freddie Mac Home Prices Home Sales Investors Jobs Lenders & Servicers Mortgage Rates Service Providers 2014-01-17 Tory Barringercenter_img January 17, 2014 404 Views Sharelast_img read more

  • President to discuss talks prospects with Spehar

    first_imgPresident Nicos Anastasiades will meet the Deputy Special Advisor of the UN Secretary-General in Cyprus, Elizabeth Spehar on Thursday morning.Government Spokesman Nicos Christodoulides, said on Wednesday the president would meet Spehar to express “the need to create prospects for resuming a dialogue that has prospects for a positive outcome”.He added however, that Turkey’s actions were not helpful. “This behaviour does not help the efforts of the president or the UN Security Council,” Christodoulides said.Anastasiades said last week that his meeting with Spehar was aimed at exploring the prospects for the resumption of the settlement talks.Spehar, “will be there to listen,” said Spokesman Aleem Siddique, underlining the oft-repeated position of the UNSG that it was up to the two sides to agree a resumption of the peace process.“The Secretary-General has always made clear that his Good Offices and the Deputy Special Adviser Ms Elizabeth Spehar remain at the disposal of both sides, when they are ready,” Siddique told the Cyprus News Agency.Spehar was meeting Anastasiades at his request, he said, adding that “these are preliminary discussions”.The meeting is scheduled for 9.30am, at the Presidential Palace. There is no similar meeting planned with Turkish Cypriot leader Mustafa Akinci.Anastasiades had said that his next move, regarding the peace talks, was dependent on his conditions being met as well as on the stance of the Turkish side.Finding common ground could be difficult however, as Anastasiades wants things to continue from where they left off in Crans-Montana, while the Turkish Cypriot side has been calling for a new approach.Matters have been further complicated following Turkey’s decision to use its warships to prevent Saipem 12000 drillship, contracted by Italian oil company ENI, reaching offshore block 3 in the Cypriot EEZ, where it was scheduled to carry out exploratory drilling.Last Saturday the Turkish Cypriot ‘foreign ministry’ said it would not accept the extension of ENI’s activities into Block 3. It had said that measures were taken by the Greek Cypriot side that did not take into account the rights of the Turkish Cypriots. The ‘TRNC’ would take the action deemed necessary, in co-operation with Turkey, to defend these rights, it said.You May LikeDr. Marty ProPower Plus Supplement3 Dangerous Foods People Feed Their Dogs (Without Realizing It)Dr. Marty ProPower Plus SupplementUndoPopularEverythingColorado Mom Adopted Two Children, Months Later She Learned Who They Really ArePopularEverythingUndoTotal Battle – Online Strategy GameIf You’re PC User This Strategy Game Is A Must-Have!Total Battle – Online Strategy GameUndo Turkish Cypriot actions in Varosha ‘a clear violation’ of UN resolutions, Nicosia saysUndoConcern over falling tourism numbersUndoPensioner dies after crash on Paphos-Polis roadUndoby Taboolaby Taboolalast_img read more
