This pandemic became the ultimate risk — like, ever. We have more than 140 alert types, and the coronavirus was a natural addition, so we just integrated it.”The Earthvisionz team began working on the coronavirus alerts in early March and had them operational two weeks later, Schott said.“We picked up a number of data feeds from mainly Johns Hopkins University in Baltimore,” he said. “They’re tracking the number of cases, number of deaths globally, and putting that on a map. We are displaying the Johns Hopkins map and also taking the data feed and displaying that information on our map command center.”_____ Related Articles Demand Propels Home Prices Upward 2 days ago Print This Post Data Provider Black Knight to Acquire Top of Mind 2 days ago The Best Markets For Residential Property Investors 2 days ago industry pulse 2020-04-16 Seth Welborn The Week Ahead: Nearing the Forbearance Exit 2 days ago Home / Daily Dose / The Industry Pulse: Keeping Servicers Updated Data Provider Black Knight to Acquire Top of Mind 2 days ago April 16, 2020 762 Views Share Save Governmental Measures Target Expanded Access to Affordable Housing 2 days ago About Author: Seth Welborn The Industry Pulse: Keeping Servicers Updated
This is placeholder text continue reading » After extending some coronavirus pandemic-related loan flexibilities earlier this week, the Federal Housing Finance Agency (FHFA) has now extended its temporary policy allowing the government-sponsored enterprises (GSEs) to purchase certain single-family mortgage loans in forbearance through Nov. 30.The agency has extended this policy several times; it was most recently set to expire at the end of October.While NAFCU is supportive of the FHFA’s efforts to support mortgage servicers experiencing increased forbearance requests and provide additional liquidity during the pandemic, the association flagged concerns about the increase of the loan-level pricing adjustment (LLPA) fee to 500 basis points for first-time homebuyers and 700 basis points for all other loans under the policy.The FHFA said the pricing adjustment is to mitigate the heightened risk of loss to the GSEs related to these loan purchases. The agency has taken other steps to address pandemic-related risks, including by implementing a policy change for the GSEs to impose a 0.5 percent fee on most mortgage refinance loans.

Huawei PR Manager Gives Training Certificate to UB OrientatorChina’s telecommunication giant Huawei announced here on Monday that Botswana will become another beneficiary of the company’s global informational and communication technology (ICT) training program aimed at cultivating ICT professionals.The program is designed to develop and transform Botswana’s ICT industry as the chosen students will implement what they have learnt in this country, said Deputy Director of Huawei Botswana Ramasala Ntwaetsile, adding that the graduates will have the opportunity to study not only ICT technologies but Huawei corporate culture and Chinese culture.Established in 2005, Huawei Botswana will celebrate its 10th anniversary this year and officially launch its first Seeds for the Future program on Nov. 10. Ten best ICT students from the southern African country will be selected to study in China at Huawei’s cost.“For the past 10 years since Huawei operated in Botswana, it has provided a solid contribution in ICT development, provided solution and new technology as now Botswana is experiencing better communication and reduced digital communication cost,” he said.Huawei will work with Ministry of Education and Skills Development (MOESD), Ministry of Transport and Communications (MTC), University of Botswana (UB) and the Chinese Embassy in Botswana to jointly select the ICT students.The launch of the program will be another milestone of cooperation between Botswana and China, said Li Nan, counselor of the embassy.The Chinese government provides scholarship to about 80 students in Botswana every year and so far it has benefited over 500 students.Permanent Secretary of MTC Neil Fitt said the government is very delighted to see that Huawei has always abided by their aspiration of growing with Botswana and focused on development of local community. “Their launch of Seeds for the Future is yet another good act to promote the development of ICT in Botswana,” he said.The program has been successfully carried out in over 45 countries.
