Vancouver firefighters on Monday morning knocked out an attic fire in a Maple Wood neighborhood house.The fire was reported at 3907 E. 15th St. around 7:40 a.m.Several units from the Vancouver Fire Department responded to the house, near 15th Street and Brandt Road. Arriving units reported light smoke coming from the attic, according to emergency radio traffic monitored at The Columbian.Vancouver police temporarily blocked the intersection.A man in the home told firefighters he smelled smoke and noticed the ceiling in the top floor of the home was hot, said Capt. Kevin Murray, a Vancouver fire spokesman. The man saw smoke when he looked into the attic, got his family out of the house and called 911, Murray said.Because the fire was reported early, crews were able to cover items in the home with salvage tarps to protect them from damage during the firefighting effort, Murray said.The fire appeared to be under control by about 8 a.m.A Vancouver Fire Marshal said the fire was unintentional and caused by an electrical problem. It caused an estimated $10,000 in damage.
Japan’s lower house has voted to extend the current Diet session until 22 July in order to pass key legislation, including the long-awaited IR Implementation Bill.The IR bill passed through the lower house on Tuesday but was in danger of stalling again with the standard 150-day Diet session originally due to expire on Wednesday 20 June. Those fears have now been allayed with Prime Minister Shinzo Abe and the leader of coalition partner Komeito, Natsuo Yamaguchi, agreeing on Wednesday to extend the session by 32 days.Senior members of the Constitutional Democratic Party of Japan alongside those from five opposition parties had earlier this week expressed their opposition to House of Representatives Speaker Tadamori Oshima regarding any extension to the current Diet session but were told they had no legal grounds to stand on.Passage of the IR Implementation Bill will open the door for Japan’s first casino resorts with three initial IR licenses to be offered. It is expected that two will be located in metropolitan areas and one in a regional location.

Jeep CherokeeKeeping its top-of-the-list placement, the Jeep Cherokee is 2019’s most American-made car. Refreshed for 2019, the compact crossover now features more tech, better cargo space and a slightly tweaked look. It’s available in no fewer the nine trims, including the off-road specific Trailhawk and a fancy-pants Trailhawk Elite.For 2019, the Cherokee gets a new 2.0-liter, turbocharged, four-cylinder engine with 270 horsepower and 295 pound-feet of torque, though naturally aspirated I4 and V6 choices are also available. Regardless of engine, a nine-speed automatic transmission gets the power to the pavement — or dirt as the case may be. The Cherokee is made in Belvidere, Illinois. 2019 Honda Ridgeline: The commuter’s pickup truck Comments General Motors Chevrolet Honda Jeep Acura 2019 Chevy Colorado ZR2 Bison: An off-road animal Share your voice 26 Photos Car Industry 2019 Honda Pilot Elite: A smoother, tech-rich crossover SUV Post a comment Chevrolet ColoradoMaking its debut in the top 10 is the Chevrolet Colorado. Shown here in the tough ZR2 Bison off-road spec, the Chevy Colorado is an excellent truck and one of the two midsize pickups you can get with a diesel engine. Adding to the ZR2’s two-inch lift and front and rear locking differentials, the Bison gets beefier skid plates (trust me, that’s a good thing), steel bumpers and integrated recovery points. Heck, you can even get a snorkel.Base models get a 2.5-liter four-cylinder engine with a six-speed manual transmission, but a more popular choice is the 3.6-liter V6 gas engine with 308 horsepower and 275 pound-feet of torque, mated to an eight-speed automatic transmission. Meanwhile, the 2.8-liter diesel pumps out 186 horsepower and a delicious 369 pound-feet of twist and is mated to a six-speed automatic. The Chevy Colorado is built in Wentzville, Missouri. Honda RidgelineAgain keeping the status quo, the Honda Ridgeline maintains third place on the American Made Index. This crossover-that-looks-like-a-truck provides a better ride than a traditional pickup and gets an awesome lockable trunk right in the floor of the bed. And it doesn’t do the truck stuff too badly, either, as it’s able to carry 1,860 pounds of payload and tow 3,500 pounds.The Ridgeline is powered by a 3.5-liter V6 good for 280 horsepower and 262 pound-feet of torque. That is channeled through a six-speed automatic transmission with available all-wheel drive. It’s built in Lincoln, Alabama. 2018 Dodge Challenger SRT Demon: Holy hell 2019 Honda Odyssey offers plenty of room and features for families More From Roadshow 2019 Acura RDX A-Spec: Sharp handling, sharper looks Enlarge ImageA new set of cats will clear this right up. Dodge Fiat Chrysler Automobiles will recall 862,520 vehicles for not meeting emissions standards, Reuters reports, citing comments from the EPA. FCA subsequently confirmed the recall to Roadshow. The recall covers the 2011-2014 Chrysler 200 and Dodge Avenger, 2011-2012 Dodge Caliber and 2011-2016 Dodge Journey.This Is a bit different than your average safety recall. This is actually not a safety recall, but an emissions recall. They come from the EPA, rather than NHTSA, and are typically the result of after-the-fact tests submitted to the EPA by the automaker, which can then begin the recall process if the results aren’t as expected. There’s a good chance we’ll be hearing about more of these types of recalls in the future, as the EPA is changing its communications model to include emissions recall announcements.It should be noted that the issue has no direct safety implications to drivers and passengers, and the EPA has not levied any fines as a result of this discovery. A FCA spokesperson, in an email to Roadshow, said it was the result of a routine series of tests performed on in-service vehicles.The remedy is relatively straightforward. FCA technicians will replace the catalytic converters in all affected vehicles. Because the old converters are still loaded with all manner of precious metals, the automaker will recycle them to recapture as much of that material as possible.The FCA spokesperson also told Roadshow that it began notifying owners of the affected vehicles last month, so owners should keep an eye out for first-class mail about the recall. As always, the recall repairs will be performed free of charge. Chevrolet CorvetteMoving up from the 10th-place slot last year is the 2019 Chevrolet Corvette. While we’ve all been ogling the new mid-engine Corvette, it’s easy to forget what a performance bargain the current-generation ‘Vette is. From the base trim to the Grand Sport to the bonkers ZR1, the Corvette is an American icon.My preference is for the Grand Sport, which strikes a perfect balance between everyday drivability and canyon-carving performance. The 6.2-liter V8 puts out 460 horsepower and 465 pound-feet of torque. You can get it with a seven-speed manual or eight-speed automatic transmission, but the kicker is the borrowed chassis and aero parts from the beefier Z06. Like I said, perfect balance. The Corvette is made in Bowling Green, Kentucky. Fiat Chrysler Dodge,Enlarge ImageIt’s all in a day’s work for the Jeep Cherokee, the most American-made car in 2019. Jeep With high trade tensions looming and increasing talk of tariffs, more and more consumers are looking to buy American. Cars.com has released its annual American Made Index, showcasing companies that use the most American-sourced parts and labor in their vehicles. The results may surprise you.Cars.com analyzed more than 100 US-built vehicles for five key data points: manufacturing location, parts sourcing, US employment, engine sourcing and transmission sourcing. You might think something like the Ford F-150 would top the list, but it drops from its No. 5 spot for 2018 and out of the top 10 completely. Even the first-place holder, the Jeep Cherokee, is a pretty global product. It’s a Jeep, sure, but that brand is part of Fiat Chrysler Automobiles, an Italian-owned business.Cars.com surveyed 1,000 people and found that half are concerned about automotive import tariffs, with 41% saying they are unsure if tariffs would make them more likely to buy American. Either way, we’re big fans of all the vehicles on this list. These days, buying American doesn’t necessarily mean sticking with a US-based automaker. 2019 Acura MDX adds new features and an A-Spec model More about 2019 Dodge Challenger SRT Hellcat Redeye 18 Photos Honda PassportThe Honda Passport is a new (well, reborn) entry to both the Honda lineup and the American Made Index. This midsize crossover comes to the fray with great driving dynamics and plenty of tech like the standard Honda Sensing suite of active safety features. An available 8-inch touchscreen gets Apple CarPlay and Android Auto as well as a Wi-Fi hotspot.Under the hood is the stalwart 3.5-liter V6 producing 280 horsepower and 262 pound-feet of torque. However unlike the Ridgeline, the Passport sends that power through a nine-speed automatic transmission. Having said that, just like the Ridgeline, this is the only powertrain available. The Honda Passport is built in Lincoln, Alabama. Recalls Dodge Chrysler 81 Photos Tags Honda OdysseyThe feature-rich Honda Odyssey minivan also retains its number-two slot from last year’s list. While the 2019 model doesn’t see any changes from last, it’s still a darn good choice for families on the go with reconfigurable seats, Wi-Fi and an excellent rear-seat entertainment system. The Cabin Watch video system lets parents keep an eye on their little darlings without turning around in their seats, while Cabin Talk amplifies their voice so no yelling is required.The Odyssey is powered by a 3.5-liter V6 rated for 280 horsepower and 262 pound-feet of torque. Most trims get a nine-speed automatic but the top Touring and Elite trims now use a 10-speed automatic with stop-start technology. The Honda Odyssey is made in Lincoln, Alabama. Car Industry Crossovers Sedans Acura MDXMoving up one slot to sixth place on the American Made Index is the non-hybrid variant of the Acura MDX. With its SH-AWD system, the MDX is one of the better handling midsize luxury crossovers, and for 2019 the company gives us the A-Spec treatment with a new front fascia and side skirts, 20-inch wheels, wider exhaust tips, unique gauges, a new steering wheel, carbon fiber trim and various Alcantara interior touches.However, both the standard and A-Spec models get a 3.5-liter V6 engine, rated for 290 horsepower and 267 pound-feet of torque going through a nine-speed automatic transmission. The Acura MDX is made in East Liberty, Ohio. 2019 Honda Passport: A well-rounded midsize offering GMC CanyonIf you’re looking for a slightly fancier version of the Colorado that’s more focused on luxe than dirt, check out the GMC Canyon. The top Denali trim gets standard heated and ventilated front seats as well as a heated steering wheel. Maximum payload capability is 1,665 pounds while max towing is a fairly healthy 7,600 pounds.The Canyon is available with the same 2.5-liter four-cylinder engine, 3.6-liter V6 or 2.8-liter diesel as the Chevrolet Colorado.

Is investing now a dirty word? And are young people today incapable of thinking for the long-term? I only ask these questions, as it is clear that millennials (today aged 16-35) have radically different saving behaviours from older generations, like Generation X or the so-called post-war baby boomers.The private bank UBS undertook a survey of the savings and investing habits of the millennial generation back in 2014, and revealed that this younger generation overwhelmingly prefer to keep their savings in cash (more than half of their total wealth) rather than in any form of longer-term investment (Chart 1).This tallies with the fact that UK home ownership in the 25-35 age group has nearly halved since 1991, from 66% back then to just 34% today. Clearly millennials, in most cases I am guessing including you reading this article, are not keen on locking up money for the long-term in shares, bonds or property, preferring the flexibility of cool hard cash.To some extent, this is understandable. Many millennials exit the education system with a hefty student loan on their backs, usually in the tens of thousands of pounds.Repayments on these loans then start once the magic figure of an annual Â£21,000 income is reached, at a rate of 15% of your monthly salary deducted at source at each month-end, before it even gets as far as your bank account. No wonder it is difficult to think about taking on another big loan in the form of a mortgage, in order to buy your own first home.But cash is no longer kingThe major problem with this savings strategy is that cash savings just dont earn like they used to, in this world of zero interest-rate policies of central banks like the Bank of England.If anything, these ultra-low interest rates should be encouraging people to borrow more, as money is effectively very cheap versus history.Just look at how savings rates in instant-access bank and building society accounts have crashed over the last couple of decades. Back at the beginning of the 1990s, you could get a double-digit interest rate on your cash savings (Chart 2).But today, the best instant access savings rate you can get on the High Street is offered by the Nationwide building society, a paltry 1.1% (in a cash ISA account). Yes it is possible to get a little more, but only by agreeing to lock up your money for a year or longer, thus forgoing a lot of flexibility.So the old financial maxim that cash is king no longer seems to be true.New, online but higher-risk investment options attract millennialsNew online forms of higher-risk investment have tended to appeal to the under-35 age group, such as crowdfunding (think websites such as kickstarter.com) and peer-to-peer lending offering higher interest rates than cash savings (such as Zopa, Funding Circle and Ratesetter).Yes, higher interest rates may be possible via these routes; but do millennial savers really understand the full extent of the far higher risks they are taking in these investment vehicles?I personally remain sceptical of these forms of online investment, which may seem seductive, but savers would always do well to remember the phrase that, there is no free lunch in investing.So yes, you may well get a higher interest rate over time, but only by risking losing some or all of that money.Financial Services companies struggle to reach millennialsClearly, the financial services industry is struggling to convince millennials to put their savings in investments that could, over a period of years, grow a lot faster than cash savings.I think that one of the main problems is that asset management companies simply do not speak the right language to this younger, internet-savvy and somewhat cynical generation.Easy ways for millennials to invest in stocks and bondsI am a big fan of keeping forms of investment as simple as possible. One online investment website that does this admirably is Nutmeg, a so-called robo-adviser.This website allows you to invest as little as Â£500 in an ISA (or other savings accounts) and choose a level of investment risk that you are comfortable with.Nutmeg will take this risk level and then do the work of choosing a number of different low-cost investments in shares and bonds (via exchange traded funds), thus freeing you from having to make the choice of which investments to put your savings in.Other similar simple online investment websites targeted at millennials include Money On Toast, Wealth Horizon and Fiver A Day.
Ruhul Kabir RizviThe BNP on Sunday condemned Saturday’s “barbaric” attack on the leaders of anti-quota movement by ruling party-backed Bangladesh Chhatra League (BCL) on Dhaka University campus.”Chhatra League is a dangerous anti-democratic force in educational institutions. They launched a heinous attack yesterday (Saturday) on the students involved in the anti-quota movement,” said BNP senior joint secretary general Ruhul Kabir Rizvi.Speaking at a press briefing at BNP’s Naya Paltan central office, he alleged that the BCL men equipped with sharp weapons attacked on selected leaders of the movement, leaving them seriously injured.”The BNP strongly protest and condemn the barbaric attack on the anti-quota demonstrators,” Rizvi added.He said the prime minister’s announcement of accepting the demand for reform in the quota system was mockery. “The entire nation is now observing the mockery. In fact, the prime minister deceived the demonstrators on that day.”Though BCL is a traditional organisation, the BNP leader said it has now turned into “young trooper of a fascist force”. “They don’t obey the law; they insult students and swoop on them if they raise voice against them.”Earlier on Saturday, some members of Bangladesh General Students’ Rights Protection Council, the platform of students that led the quota reform movement, were injured in an attack allegedly by some BCL activists on the Dhaka University campus.In April, students of public and private universities across the country waged a strong movement demanding reforms in the quota system.In the face of student agitations, prime minister Sheikh Hasina announced in parliament on April 11 the abolition of all types of quotas in public jobs.As no gazette notification has so far been issued regarding the abolishment of the quota system as per the PM’s declaration, the leaders of the council gathered in front DU central library on Saturday to hold a pre-scheduled press conference to announce their fresh programme. But, BCL activists reportedly carried out an attack on them around 10:50am.
Its that time of the year when people take a break and plan a summer vacation. Be it preparing for a long international trip or short domestic one, make sure to have some checked luggage essentials for a comfortable and hassle-free flight.Here are some flight essentials that should be part of your luggage as you plan your vacation:Eye masks and ear buds: These days travelling can be quite hectic. What better way than dozing off to your dreamland while flying over the clouds and no phone calls, messages or mails to disturb you? To do so, nothing works better than an eye mask and comfortable ear plugs. Also Read – Add new books to your shelfMagazines and books: While everyone dreads long flights, it is actually a great opportunity to catch up on reading. Rather than just bringing along one magazine or a book, make sure to pack a couple extras to help prevent boredom in the event of a missed connection or an onboard entertainment system that is malfunctioning. Just avoid buying them at the airport if you can, since these items can be rather pricey.A travel pillow: Whether you’ve booked an overnight flight or just want to avoid arriving at your destination with a sore neck, you can’t go wrong by packing a compact travel pillow. Many brands are available in the market which provide comfort in quite an affordable range.Hygiene wipes and essentials: A must on every travellers list. You never know where you might have to use one – public restrooms are often dirty and unhygienic, with toilet seats and other surfaces carrying a host of bacteria. To avoid UTI, make sure you carry hygiene wipes and toilet seat sprays along with hand sanitizers.
4 min read Hear from business owners and CEOs who went through a crippling business problem and came out the other side bigger and stronger. September 29, 2016 Listen Now Problem Solvers with Jason Feifer New Yorkers, as you probably already know, are passionate about pizza. So when I get a pitch informing me that a startup is employing robots to prepare cheese-covered pies, I just have to snicker.Really, Silicon Valley, pizza is the latest problem you need to solve with robots?But clearly, Julia Collins, co-CEO of Zume Pizza, has put some thought into this beyond my closed-minded New York worldview. On Thursday, Zume announced what it says, in a press release, is the world’s first “food delivery vehicle that cooks en route.” The truck utilizes 56 ovens to deliver food that doesn’t spend too much time in a box.Related: Think of Your Startup Like a Pepperoni Pizza — Use a Simple Recipe for Success”New York is full of storied mom-and-pop restaurants serving incredibly delicious pizza, with recipes handed down through generations, and this is the pizza that inspires us,” she wrote to Entrepreneur via email. “Sadly, the majority of us can’t go and sit down to enjoy a fresh-baked pie every time we want pizza. Instead, we’ve become accustomed to ordering delivery pizza that arrives greasy, lukewarm and packed with preservatives — but it doesn’t have to be that way.”Image credit: Zume PizzaFair point. I’ve certainly eaten my share of Domino’s and its ilk, and I barely consider what those eateries serve to be pizza. Those places are, unfortunately, the main options for most people outside large cities.Pizza is a $40 billion annual industry in the U.S., according to IBISWorld. It’s mostly dominated by Domino’s, Little Caesars, Papa John’s and Pizza Hut. But Collins, along with her co-founder and co-CEO, Alex Garden, who is an inventor and the former president of Zynga and general manager of Xbox Live, offers a compelling argument for Zume’s model vs. these brands.Related: Watch 1,000 Robots Dance in Unison — and Set a World Record”First, the quality of the food that is being delivered is not very good because it’s pumped with added sugar, synthetic nitrites and preservatives,” says Collins, a long-time restaurateur. “Second, delivery pizza is slow — it takes 45 minutes on average to get to your door. Third, the packaging is not eco-friendly because cardboard boxes come from trees. Fourth, it’s not very profitable.”According to the company, the pizza is parbaked — the dough is cooked for 90 seconds — at the Zume Pizza headquarters before it’s transferred to the food delivery vehicle. Prior to its arrival at a customer’s door, the pizza is baked for three minutes then cooled for 30 seconds.The truck currently delivers to customers in Mountain View, Calif. It’s important to note that I haven’t tried the pizza, so I can’t attest to its freshness or flavor.Image credit: Zume Pizza”Our proprietary pizza-making robots, also referred to as ‘P-Bos,’ automate unsafe, repetitive tasks associated with food preparation (ask any pizza chef about the number of burns on his or her arms!) so that we can invest in more high-quality, locally sourced ingredients,” Collins says.And the technology doesn’t stop with pizza.Related: How This Pizza Company Grew to Become a Bigger Slice of the Pie”At the present time, we are focused on optimizing our operation to create the very best pizza delivery experience in the world,” Collins says. “Once we have perfected our pizza operation, we will have the ability to expand beyond pizza. In fact, our patents cover cooking all food en route.”It’s a future I’ll just have to taste to believe.
Firefox Nightly 63: Mozilla runs WebRender study by Martin Brinkmann on July 19, 2018 in Firefox – Last Update: July 20, 2018 – 27 commentsWebRender is a new technology that Mozilla plans to integrate in the Firefox web browser. A milestone has been reached recently as WebRender has been enabled for part of the Firefox Nightly population.WebRender is a Servo component written in Rust that Mozilla plans to integrate into Firefox. The main idea behind WebRender is that the graphics processing unit (GPU) is used to render web content instead of the processor which has been used traditionally for that.WebRender will replace the compositor that Gecko uses currently in Firefox. The switch from using the CPU to do the heavy lifting in regards to rendering to the GPU should improve performance of the entire process significantly.While users should not expect major performance boosts right now in Firefox Nightly, Mozilla’s aim is to improve Firefox’s rendering performance significantly in the long run.Mozilla decided to run a Shield study to test WebRender under specific criteria in Firefox Nightly. Shield studies are run to gather data, in this case how certain metrics such as crashes change on WebRender versions of Firefox compared to Firefox versions without WebRender.The study runs on Windows 10 devices with Nvidia GPUs only and the latest version of Firefox Nightly is required as well as it won’t be run on other Firefox channels such as Beta.Mozilla will select 50% of the Firefox population that meets the test criteria and enable WebRender on those systems; the remaining 50% are the control group which means that WebRender won’t be enabled on those devices.The main goal of the study is to make sure that WebRender runs within acceptable parameters when compared to the control group. Mozilla wants to make sure that regressions and crashes stay within a 5% to 10% limit.Mozilla plans to set the preference gfx.webrender.all.qualified on eligible systems to true to enable WebRender on those systems. You can change the preference at any time, for instance when you notice rendering issues, crashes, or other issues that are caused by WebRender.Mozilla collects issues on Bugzilla@Mozilla, and has listed some already. Users may notice higher CPU usage with WebRender enabled on YouTube, FTS drops on WebGL demo websites with the feature enabled, and that “specific images entirely coded in HTML & CSS are not correctly rendered”.The study will run for two weeks after which it ends. Data is analyzed afterward and Mozilla’s next steps will be based on that analysis. (via Sören)Closing WordsWebRender is a promising new feature of Firefox that is currently in development and testing phase. Mozilla wants to make sure that WebRender improves the rendering and does not cause regressions before it enables it for a larger part of the Firefox population or other channels.Now You: What’s your take on WebRender?SummaryArticle NameFirefox Nightly 63: Mozilla runs WebRender studyDescriptionWebRender is a new technology that Mozilla plans to integrate in the Firefox web browser and has just started a study for in Firefox Nightly.Author Martin BrinkmannPublisher Ghacks Technology NewsLogo Advertisement
Corporate Travel Management (CTM) will acquire one of Australia’s largest corporate travel companies, Travelcorp Holdings, effective from January 3, 2011. Source = e-Travel Blackboard: C.F CTM founder and CEO Jamie Pherous told the Queensland Business Review that Travelcorp would be an excellent cultural fit with the business.“We both have a reputation for employing great people and delivering a highly personalised service to our clients,” Pherous told QBR. “This further strengthens our market position in creating a truly alternative travel services provider,” he says.The TravelCorp takeover is the latest in a string of purchases by CTM, including its acquisition of the New Zealand-based Cavalier Travel Services in August, Sydney’s Travelogic in 2008, Perth’s Debretts in 2006 and Melbourne’s Rhodes Corporate Travel in 2001.

Fairmont Hotels & Resorts stated that it has achieved World Wildlife Fund (WWF) Climate Savers Program targets, reducing its operational CO2 emissions by 20% below 2006 levels. In doing so, the luxury hotel brand known for its industry-leading sustainability programming becomes the first hotel brand and Canadian-based Company to meet this ambitious environmental goal.WWF’s Climate Savers Program was designed to inspire companies to change their thinking about climate solutions while also encouraging them to transform themselves into low-carbon leaders. This leaves member companies better placed to avoid carbon-related risks while realising opportunities within their long-term business strategies.“According to the United Nations, emissions generated directly from the tourism sector account today for five percent of global CO2 emissions but may be higher. When Fairmont joined WWF’s Climate Savers Program in 2009, our mandate was to help address this issue as part of our long-standing commitment to sustainability,” said Jane Mackie, Vice President, Fairmont Brand. “Achieving this goal is a testament to our colleagues’ commitment to their local communities. Thanks to their hard work, and through the purchase of Renewable Energy Certificates, we have removed as much CO2 as is generated by 13,569 passenger vehicles.”Since its founding over a century ago, Fairmont has worked to deepen its connection to the environment and communities where it conducts business. This mindset led to the launch of the highly acclaimed and industry-leading Green Partnership Program, now known as the Fairmont Sustainability Partnership, a comprehensive approach to reducing the company’s impact on the environment, and to the brand embracing the Climate Savers Program.“Leading companies like Fairmont are proving that strong environmental action leads to business success,” said David Miller, President and CEO, WWF-Canada. “Successful actions like these are critical to mitigating the devastating impacts of climate change on people and nature.”In London, The Savoy, A Fairmont Managed Hotel established itself as one of the greenest hotels in the city by adding new energy efficient boilers, smart meters, and a waste management system that recycles up to 90% of the property’s waste and converts it into an energy source. The iconic hotel also installed a centralised compressor plant for all kitchen walk-in fridges and freezers, which reclaims waste-heat and produces savings of GBP 38,500 annually.
Strong positive indicators in the housing market have “”Capital Economics””:http://www.capitaleconomics.com/ revising its predictions on growth in 2013 and beyond.[IMAGE]According to the firm’s most recent _US Housing Market Analyst_ report, Capital Economics foresees “”further strong gains in home sales and housing starts in 2013,”” as well as improvements in prices and mortgage activity.While the United States faces a number of major hurdles–including the growing threat of the fiscal cliff and fallout from the ongoing euro-zone crisis–analysts for the company expect approximately 2 percent overall economic growth in 2013, lower than the 2.2 percent projected for 2012. While that rate of improvement may not impress, they note that “”the building blocks for faster growth further ahead are falling into place,”” predicting 2.5 percent annual growth in 2014-2016.Against that backdrop, Capital Economics expects the housing recovery to march on.Total home sales for 2012 are forecast at 5.0 million, followed by 5.3 million in 2013 and 5.4 million in 2014. While sales will continue to increase each year, growth is expected to slow to about 0.1 million more home sales each year.[COLUMN_BREAK]According to the report, “”[t]he improvement in sales will continue to owe a good deal to investors and cash buyers, who are attracted to housing by the sheer extent to which it is undervalued and the prospects for strong rental market demand.””In a “”recent examination of the market””:https://themreport.com/articles/capital-economics-recovery-is-real-deal-2012-11-29, analysts for the firm warned that investors will soon start pulling out as the very recovery they created drives them away. However, with consumer demand for mortgages making a comeback, the market may not be so dangerously dependent on investor activity in the future.Another headwind facing housing is the oft-cited “”shadow inventory”” that threatens to flood supply and wash away this year’s price gains. While Capital Economics acknowledges the “”substantial overhang of properties in the shadow inventory,”” analysts believe the supply will continue trickling into the market, keeping conditions relatively tight compared to rising demand.Taken together, the tight supply and increased demand are expected to create continued price gains. Capital Economics forecasts a 5 percent increase in prices in 2013 and 4 percent annual gains for the next several years after that.While that forecast doesn’t take into account the downside risks from today’s unresolved financial crises, the company points out that there are also upside risks as market supply conditions continue to tighten. In the best case scenario, prices could rise by up to 10 percent next year.At the same time, projections for homebuilding volumes have been revised upward in response to strong gains throughout the year and in the last several months in particular. Analysts anticipate starts to come in at 778,000 at the end of 2012, rising to 950,000 in 2013 and 1.05 million in 2014. in Data, Government, Origination, Secondary Market, Servicing Agents & Brokers Attorneys & Title Companies Capital Economics Demand Home Prices Home Sales Homebuilders Housing Starts Investors Lenders & Servicers Mortgage Applications Processing Service Providers 2012-12-07 Tory Barringer Share December 7, 2012 422 Views Capital Economics Revises Forecast as Market Strengthens
Derrick Hall satisfied with D-backs’ buying and selling TEMPE, Ariz. – Head coach Bruce Arians, now in his fifth year with the Arizona Cardinals, meets the media several times leading up to gameday.Here, in this space, with help from the Cardinals’ media relations staff, we’ll highlight many of the key topics and personnel conversations he has with reporters following practice.Opening statement:“Not practicing today: John Brown with his toe, Josh Bynes, Karlos (Dansby) was OK, Larry (Fitzgerald) was OK, Troy Niklas, Patrick Peterson with an ankle, Frostee’s (Rucker) OK and Earl Watford. A good start to the week. I think everybody enjoyed Christmas a little too much, and it was a slow start to practice, which is usual for that time of year and having a couple days off.” On if he likes how the defensive line has come together this season:“Oh gosh, they’re playing extremely well. It’s a shame, each week it’s been one guy (down), maybe for a couple of weeks. Corey (Peters) was down. Xavier (Williams) was down. Robert (Nkemdiche) was down.”The next guy jumps in and plays extremely well. ‘O.P.’ (Olsen Pierre) has missed a little time, but he’s had a heck of a year. Rodney’s (Gunter) has gotten better and better. The whole group, they feed off each other.”On the seriousness of CB Patrick Peterson’s ankle injury:“Not very. I would hope to see him back out there tomorrow.”On what it would mean to him to become the franchise’s all-time winningest head coach:“It means we’d be 8-8, and that’s about it. The rest of that stuff, I don’t put much stock in. It’s nice to be 8-8 because we’re 7-8, but it isn’t what we wanted when we started this journey this year.”On if there are any takeaways for QB Drew Stanton from Palmer’s three wins in Seattle:“Yeah, Drew’s had some success himself at times. It’s just completing those balls. There are going to be four or five opportunities for big plays, and you’ve got to hit them. You can’t miss them.” On if he has told Fitzgerald, “I told you so:”“No. Never.”On how he would sum up QB Carson Palmer’s time with him over the last five seasons:“Oh gosh, it’s been fantastic, some of the best of his career, some of the best of my career – his numbers and the wins, his leadership. It’s just a shame he had the knee and now the arm, or I think he’d have done wondrous things in his time here.”On working with Palmer late in his career compared to younger quarterbacks:“It was totally different. You’ve got a guy with three kids and older, set in ways a little bit, that you have to change how they read things, how they see things, how they communicate. But, it’s always fun. Quarterbacks, they just have a great camaraderie in that room on how to learn.”Every guy learns different. A young guy, you can brainwash him. A veteran guy, you say, ‘You’ve got to forget some of that. We don’t do it that way. That’s going to get you in trouble,’ and they’ll ask you, ‘Why?’ And you’ve got to have the reasons why.”On if he sees Palmer as a 38-year-old quarterback after his birthday today:“No, he’s a youngster to me. He’s in fantastic shape, so yeah.” Grace expects Greinke trade to have emotional impact “You just talk to the coaches, and then when you talk to him, he starts spitting out information, ‘I can play corner. I can do this. I studied this guy.’ You know that this is a guy that loves the game.”You didn’t have to be around him very long to know it, but Coach (Chris) Petersen’s outstanding and that program he’s running up there. Everybody gave him raving reviews.”On how far back into a player’s history the Cardinals research while scouting him:“Our guys go all the way back. They check out everything, especially if they’re someone who knows the family. You want to know everything there is to know about a player before you sign him or draft him.”On how he would describe WR Larry Fitzgerald’s 2017 season:“Pretty much the norm. He comes in great shape, he catches a hundred passes and gains a thousand yards. I just wish he had a few more touchdowns this year, but that’s been kind of the norm ever since we’ve known him.”On how Fitzgerald has thrived within the role he has been placed:“Yeah, it was a decision for him to leave playing what he had played and was very comfortable doing and just trusting that, ‘Hey, it’s going to work out, and you’re going to catch a whole lot more balls this way.’” The 5: Takeaways from the Coyotes’ introduction of Alex Meruelo 0 Comments Share Top Stories It’s a good start to the week. We know how big the week is for us to get to 8-8, and that’s the only thing we’re focused on.”On the attention his comments regarding the Cardinals success at CenturyLink Field has received:“Things that you say to your team in your locker room are supposed to be in your locker room. But, it got out, and I said it. So, we have won three (out of four) up there.”On if he likes the idea of having the Seahawks playoff aspirations at stake this Sunday:“No, I’d rather it be us in the playoffs a hell of a lot more than this, but it’s fun. It adds something to the game.”On the Cardinals and Seahawks having success at each other’s stadiums:“Yeah, just how physical the games usually, are and a play usually turns it here or there. Russell’s (Wilson) play down here was, obviously, an unbelievable play, and it changed the game. We’ve had some plays up there – J.J.’s (Nelson) catch last year and some other things. Big plays make the difference in the game normally.”On if his players are incentivized to knock the Seahawks out of the playoffs:“I think it means a whole lot more to be playing them than somebody else, yes.”On how he knew that S Budda Baker was a “football junkie” when scouting him: Former Cardinals kicker Phil Dawson retires (AP Photo) On if he has any New Year’s resolutions:“Not yet. Same one as last year – lose 30 pounds. (Haven’t) had much luck this year.”

Lebanon and Israel are formally at war and collaborating with Israel can be punishable by death.“I am a theatre person, people! Why should I be accused of the worst crime ever?” he said.Itani’s arrest and subsequent exoneration were heavily covered by local media, amid a struggle among political rivals with links to the country’s various and often competing security agencies. The case was withdrawn from one security agency and passed on to another after irregularities emerged earlier this month.Lebanon will hold its first parliamentary elections in a decade later this year, pitting prominent Sunni families in Beirut against political rivals. A large poster near Itani’s house showed a picture of him with a caption reading: “Beirut with you.”Prime Minister Saad Hariri, a Sunni, hugged Itani after his release from prison, airing their meeting on his official Twitter account.The office of the chief military prosecutor released a statement Tuesday saying it had ordered the release of Itani. It didn’t say why the security officer, Lt. Col. Suzan Hobeiche, the former head of the anti-cybercrime unit, had been arrested. Local media reported that Hobeiche had fabricated the case against Itani based on his public social media profile and contacts. Hobeiche has been held for interrogation for days.
