first_imgNORTH KOREA TODAY released a detained American veteran of the Korean War as US Vice President Joe Biden visited the world’s last Cold War frontier.US officials said Merrill Newman, an 85-year-old from California, headed home after arriving in Beijing.Newman had been visiting Pyongyang as a tourist when he was taken from a plane that was just about to leave the North Korean capital on 26 October. North Korea had accused him of committing crimes both as a tourist and during his participation in the Korean War six decades ago.The official North Korean news agency today said it deported him “from a humanitarian viewpoint”, citing his “sincere repentance” as well as his age and health condition.His release came hours before Biden visited the demilitarised zone which has split the Korean peninsula since the 1950-1953 Korean War.Wearing a baseball cap and brown bomber jacket, Biden visited a front-line hilltop observation post and surveyed the North Korean landscape through a pair of binoculars.Joe Biden in South Korea today. (AP Photo/Lee Jin-man) “The DPRK (North Korea) today released someone they should never have had in the first place, Mr. Newman,” Biden said earlier after laying a wreath at the war memorial in Seoul.“It’s a positive thing they’ve done,” said Biden, visiting South Korea as the last stop on a three-country Asia tour that has already taken him to Japan and China.Biden also urged Pyongyang to free another US citizen, Kenneth Bae, a 45-year-old tour operator who was arrested a year ago and sentenced to 15 years’ hard labour on charges of seeking to topple the government.Biden said Bae was being held for “no reason” and “should be released immediately”.Plans for going homeBiden’s office said the vice president had spoken to Merrill Newman by telephone.“I offered him a ride home on Air Force Two, but as he pointed out, there’s a direct flight to San Francisco, so I don’t blame him, I’d be on that flight too,” Biden told reporters.Two North Korean soldiers watch US Vice President Joe Biden on the other side of the border. (AP Photo/Lee Jin-man) Newman told reporters at Beijing airport that he was “very glad to be on my way home”, according to the South’s Yonhap news agency.Asked about the first thing he planned to do, the veteran said he would “go home and see my wife”, Yonhap said.AFP learnt from the US embassy in Beijing that Newman had departed for the United States accompanied by a consular official.“We are pleased that Mr Merrill Newman has been allowed to depart the DPRK and rejoin his family,” US State Department deputy spokeswoman Marie Harf said in a statement.Bae’s family welcomed Newman’s release and said in a statement: “We believe that our Kenneth should also come home soon.”Video ‘confession’Last week Pyongyang for the first time officially admitted holding Newman, saying he was detained for “hostile acts” after entering the country “under the guise of a tourist”.The North also claimed that Newman masterminded espionage and subversive activities during the war and was involved in the killing of North Korean soldiers and innocent civilians.Merrill Newman’s video ‘confession’ (AP Photo/Ahn Yung Joon) Newman, a retired financial executive who spent time in North Korea during the war, had filmed a video apology confessing to his crimes.The North released the footage and photos showing Newman — dressed in a button-down blue shirt and light, wrinkled trousers — reading the apology, which was dated November 9 and ran to nearly 600 words.Pyongyang claimed Newman, who supervised a South Korean guerrilla unit during the war, had intended to meet surviving soldiers and pray for the souls of the dead during his trip to North Korea.MisunderstandingBut friends and relatives have said the grandfather, who was on an organised tour, was detained due to a “misunderstanding”.South Korean veterans who served with Newman during the war have said North Korea fabricated charges against the American. They said Newman had tried to visit Seoul following a trip to Pyongyang.The autocratic regime has in the past freed detained Americans after visits from high-level emissaries.Pyongyang runs one of the world’s most secretive states and independently verifying official reports is notoriously difficult.The communist regime is widely thought to govern with an iron fist, with frequent public executions and up to 200,000 political prisoners languishing in labour camps.- © AFP, 2013Read: Paddy Power are sending Dennis Rodman back to North Korea > Read: North Korea marches on towards nuclear reactor, despite international fears > Read: North Korea agrees to reunions for families separated since the 50s >last_img read more

first_imgAlex Ferguson’s wife Cathy in the stands yesterday. Pic: Mike Egerton/EMPICS SportFittingly, given United’s track record of scoring dramatic late goals on Ferguson’s watch, United beat Swansea with an 87th-minute winner from Rio Ferdinand after Swansea’s Michu had cancelled out Javier Hernandez’s opening goal.Ferguson confessed that such late drama is the one aspect of football management he will most miss. ALEX FERGUSON YESTERDAY revealed that loyalty to his wife, Cathy, was the key factor in his decision to retire from football management at the end of the current season.The 71-year-old Scot enjoyed an emotion-charged farewell in Manchester United’s 2-1 victory over Swansea City at Old Trafford on Sunday, his last home game after more than 26 years in charge of the new English champions.The fixture came just four days after Ferguson’s announcement that he is to retire stunned the football world and, after the celebrations that followed the victory, he took time to explain the reasons behind his decision for the first time.“Around last Christmas,” said Ferguson, when asked when he had decided to bring an end to his reign.“Basically, things changed when Cathy’s sister died. She is isolated a lot now and I think a lot of the time, for 47 years, she has been the leader of the family, looked after our three sons and sacrificed herself for me.“Now she has the grandchildren, and they all dote on her, but now she has lost her best friend — her sister — so that was important. I think it is also important to go out as a winner. That is really important at this club. It is all I ever wanted to do here — be a winner.”Ferguson and United had hoped to delay the announcement until later in the build-up to the Swansea game, only for rumours to run rife through Manchester on Tuesday following a club golf day.“It was very difficult to keep it a secret,” added Ferguson. “There were some times when we almost blurted it out to the family. We told our sons in March, but my brother didn’t know until Tuesday night. I wanted to tell the players first really, the players and the staff. But unfortunately, there were rumours going around on Tuesday. So all that started to speed it up a bit.” “The last-minute goals. I love them,” he smiled. “We lost a few, but it’s part of the history as well. It is hard to look back. I have never done that, but I have plenty of time to do that now. The most important achievement, without doubt, was winning the first league (in 1993). Once we did that, a door opened.“We just grew and grew after that and saw some fantastic changes. There have been some great players and it has been an honour to manage them; different personalities and different cultures. It has been a fantastic challenge of management.”Ferguson, who delivered a post-match speech on the pitch before United were presented with the Premier League trophy, confessed that the occasion almost got the better of him.“The atmosphere today was absolutely magnificent,” he told Geoff Shreeves. “It was fun, there was enjoyment and it is great to be in the stadium where everyone is enjoying themselves. I didn’t know what to say. I was grasping at things that I could possibly say. I spoke to my son Jason in the morning and he said, ‘Go with the flow, start talking, and you’ll get there.’“I babbled on a bit, I suppose. It was emotional. During the week was emotional with the staff. That was hard. They’ll get through it.”© AFP, 20135 thoughts from this weekend’s Premier League gamesZlatan, Paris Saint-Germain clinch Ligue 1 titlelast_img read more

first_imgTHERE ARE OVER 100,000 people in Ireland who suffer from sleep apnea – but the true figure could be twice that, a conference in Galway was told today.Delegates at the annual conference of the Irish Dental Association were told by an expert on the disorder that 90 per cent of those who suffer from sleep apnea are undiagnosed, but awareness of the disorder is growing.What is sleep apnea?Sleep apnea occurs when the airway collapses and airflow stops for 10 seconds. If this happens constantly, it prevents the person getting the deep sleep required to function normally.Symptoms of apnea include:Inappropriate fatigueChoking episodes during sleepExcessive nappingBruxism or tooth grindingIrritability, anxiety and poor mental functioningHypertension Dr Michael McWeeney, Consultant Respiratory Physican in Galway Clinic and the Bon Secours Hospital,says the prevalence of the condition is rising in tandem with our increasing awareness.He said that they believe the condition affects between 2.5 and 4 per cent of the population, “but because most people who suffer from it remain undiagnosed that figure may be a little on the conservative side”.We are in an obesity epidemic and that increases the severity of apnea. Poor muscle tone and alcohol consumption also increase the risk substantially. What we really want to do is raise awareness of the condition not just among the general population but also among health providers such as doctors and dentists.He said that 30 per cent of men snore, while the figure for women is around 10 per cent. Dr McWeeney also noted that snoring on its own is not the issue, “as not everyone who snores has apnea”.However if a person who snores suffers from constant fatigue despite adequate sleep they should visit a doctor or specialist with knowledge of the condition to get a diagnosis.Dr Dermot Canavan, who specialises in the treatment of orofacial pain, said that dentists can provide oral appliances that can be used in mild to moderate cases of sleep apnea where a patient finds CPAP ( a Continuous Positive Airway Pressure machine) unsuitable.If a person is napping a lot or falling asleep regularly at the cinema they could well be suffering from this disorder. Naturally the consequences of them falling asleep while driving or operating machinery are very serious.Treatment for the condition may include lifestyle adjustments such as losing weight or adjusting sleeping position, the use of a CPAP machine or a device similar to a sports mouth guard called a Mandibular Advancement Device (MAD) which can be made by a dentist.“Sleep apnea is an extremely debilitating condition and the earlier it is identified the greater the likelihood of successful treatment,” Dr Canavan concluded.Read: 27 easy ways to sleep better tonight>Read: Lack of sleep “top risk of stroke”>last_img read more

first_imgIf you’re a Mac owner and haven’t checked Software Update, give it a click: Apple dropped Mac OS X 10.6.5 yesterday, the latest update to Snow Leopard, and containing numerous fixes to security and printing issues, as well as improved graphics drivers that make Mac gaming faster than ever before.Like many of Apple’s point releases, it’s a jumble of fixes with a minimum of new features. On the printing side of things, the software update fixes delays between print jobs, the ability to connect some HP printers to Airport stations, as well as the spacing of OpenType fonts.AdChoices广告Interestingly, though, one big feature of OS X 10.6.5 was dropped at the last minute: AirPrint support, which would allow users to print directly from iOS to a Mac-connected printer. It was supposed to be universal functionality, but now it’s been limited only to a set of HP AirPrint-ready printers.The graphics improvements are the most exciting, though. Having worked closely with Valve to improve the system’s gaming performance, Apple has just closed some of the performance gap between OpenGL on Windows and on OS X. The update also includes a host of new RAW profiles if you’ve got a newer digital camera.If you want to download OS X 10.6.5 you can download it here or through Software Update in the Apple menu.last_img read more

first_img Facebook Twitter: @NeosKosmos Instagram Victoria’s Commissioner for Aboriginal Children and Young People, Andrew Jackomos, has called for urgent action to support Aboriginal children, who make up about half of the nation’s youth currently in detention.In a statement released on the eve of Australia Day, Commissioner Jackomos (who is of Greek and Aboriginal heritage) said: “We must urgently address the high rates of Aboriginal children languishing in our youth justice detention centres so that we can all truly feel proud to be Australian”.Aboriginal youngsters in Victoria continue to be removed from home and placed into state care at alarming rates and continue to be grossly over-represented in the youth justice system. The Independent Visitors Program (IVP) operated by the Commission for Children and Young People found that 16 per cent of all children and young people detained in the state’s youth justice detention centres were Aboriginal when it visited centres at Parkville and Malmsbury this month.The commission is also concerned about the escalating rates of children on remand and has recently sought to monitor the conditions of detention more closely. For Aboriginal children, being separated from family, kin and community can compound their loss of identity, culture and community. Commissioner Jackomos has been vocal in his calls to reform the Victorian Bail Act to introduce criteria that are specific to children, and to ensure that breaches of bail do not of themselves trigger police arrest and incarceration. The Bail Amendment Bill 2015 is due for debate again next month. Commissioner Jackomos says reform to the Bail Act is a “no brainer” and has pleaded with all sides of politics to support the amendments “for the benefit of all our children”.last_img read more

first_imgDallas Seavey, pictured here in Galena, is racing his father Mitch for the Iditarod title. (Photo by Zach Hughes/KSKA)The top three teams in this year’s Iditarod have pulled into White Mountain, the final big stop along the trail. But as KNOM’s Emily Schwing reports, it’s not entirely clear who will finish first.Download AudioThe first team to pull into the second to last checkpoint on the 1000 mile trail was Dallas Seavey’s. Seavey said there was a point on the Yukon River when he wondered if he was even still in contention for a top finish.“There was a time in this race where I thought I had a small market share when it come to who had a chance at winning this thing,” said Seavey.Seavey said he was looking over his shoulder all night on the roughly 75-mile run from Koyuk. He anticipates doing the same on his way to Nome.Dallas and Mitch Seavey, pictured here in Koyuk, will race for the 2016 Iditarod title. (Photo by Emily Schwing/KNOM)“It’s a habit, I can’t help it. I’ve been surprised too many times. You’re watching for one team and another team pops up out of somewhere,” said Seavey.39 minutes later, Dallas Seavey’s father, Mitch drove his dog team into White Mountain. He smiled widely at the idea of racing against his son.“I don’t mean it as a cliché, but I have two chances to win. I’d a lot rather win myself and I’m gonna do everything I can. I’ll give him nothing for free, including dogs or a college education,” said Seavey.Seavey also knows it will be hard to make up the time he needs to catch his son’s team.“..Makes it fun, makes it very cool to be here both of us. Unless there’s a big earthquake one of us is going to win,” said Seavey.A big earthquake–or something like it–is exactly what Brent Sass needs. He’s currently poised to finish in a solid third place, but he does have an outside chance to finish even higher.“With what it is now, I have to have a spectacular run and they have to have something go wrong, that’s basically what has to happen at this point but anything is possible,” said Sass.Regardless of the time gap Sass says he won’t stop racing until his team crosses under the burled arch.“Oh no! I mean they’re still sitting here. They haven’t left yet and I’m not that far behind and I have been going back and forth with them for the last few hundred miles, so you can’t ever give up, that’s for sure,” said Sass.The next 77 miles will be some of the most competitive in this year’s race. Whether they are some of the most competitive miles mushed in the race’s history won’t be decided until teams reach Nome.last_img read more

first_imgIt’s Ghostbusters week, with Paul Feig’s reboot hitting theaters everywhere Friday and rolling the dice on continuing the Ghostbusters franchise. The 2016 film premiered last Saturday in Los Angeles where Sony producer Amy Pascal said this Ghostbusters franchise would be “endless.” If the film is successful, much more Ghostbusters universe content will get the green light and the world-building from the 2016 Ghostbusters status quo will become the basis of whatever ghost busting is to come. That makes any tie-in material very interesting for geeks who are interested the ways franchises bloom these days.In the new Ghostbusters movie, Kristen Wiig plays Erin Gilbert, a professor who is about to get tenure at Columbia University’s physics department before a book she had written with a friend in college resurfaces. The book is called “Ghosts From Our Past,” and the movie reveals that the co-author, Abby Bates (Melissa McCarthy) has self published after the two had a falling out. Erin goes to confront Abby, and that’s how the new team begins to form.Like Tobin’s Spirit Guide, another book from Ghostbusters lore has been published here in the real world. Ghosts From Our Past is written by Andrew Shaffer in the voice of young Erin and Abby. Where as Tobin’s Spirit Guide was written from the perspective of Ray Stantz and chronicled the canon of the 1984 Ghostbusters, Ghosts From Our Past defines ghosts and ghost classification for the new continuity. Also like Tobin’s Spirit Guide, you’ll probably be doing some Googling while you read.The book is split into three sections: “Our Story,” “Our Research,” and “Our Methods.” The first part gives Erin and Abby backstories elaborated beyond what ended up being in the film and includes the story of how they met. The second section dives into the history of the Ghostbusters world, with historic ghost sightings, previous paranormal investigators, ghost classification, and Spectral Field Theory. Fans of Ghostbusters technobabble are going to love the explanation of the durable but not impenetrable barrier. The final section is about ghost hunting and drawing ghosts to you, but since the book was “written” by the girls before they were Ghostbusters, the trap and proton pack talk is limited to a “Revised and Updated Edition” section.After reading the book, we got in contact with Andrew Shaffer himself to ask him some questions about creating and adapting so much new Ghostbusters lore while pretending to be Abby and Erin. The detailed stories in the first section of the book provide a clearer portrait of the characters than the other text-based materials related to the movie. When we asked Shaffer how he was able to best the different movie novelizations, he accepted the compliment, but elaborated on how difficult the process is.“The middle-grade novelization was beat-for-beat from the screenplay—very bare bones, which I assume is mostly due to page length constraints,” wrote Shaffer, “Nancy Holder’s adult novelization deviates from the script, providing backstories for the characters and even adding entire new scenes (several of which don’t match up with Ghosts From Our Past, which is just one of the realities of the world of novelizations). It’s a fully fleshed out world, which I enjoyed reading. However, authors who write novelizations are usually working ‘blind’—from a script, without having seen even a rough cut of the film. It’s a difficult job.”Shaffer could have also gone in blind with just the script to work off, but was granted a big boon from production. “I had an advantage when it came to capturing the characters’ voices,” Shaffer revealed, “Screenwriters Paul Feig and Katie Dippold provided feedback on my outline and sample material. Additionally, Paul read multiple drafts of the book and let me know where I’d strayed from his vision, as the director.” That sort of involvement is far from routine for a the licensed material gig, and it adds to the portrayal of Abbie, Erin, and the pair’s comedy on the page.The second section of the book is where things really get interesting. There are certain sections the book contains that are from the script, like Spectral Field Theory, and Abbie and Erin’s rap about classifying ghosts. Then there are completely new ghost stories and references that are both real and completely fictional. There are real references to spiritualism and debunkers like Harry Houdini, but there are also references to Maureen Kemp, author of Kemp’s Spectral Field Guide and Vernon Heiss’ Occult Manifestation Index (Heiss is the last name of a paranormal debunker in the film).Shaffer confesses there are Easter eggs in the book, “All of the faux books from the original Ghostbusters films and animated series really provided this immersive world. When I learned there wasn’t going to be a Tobin’s Spirit Guide in the new Ghostbusters universe, I was a little bummed. However, when I got the go-ahead to create a new slate of books within the context of Ghosts From Our Past, I perked up.”As for Google helping us locate specifically what things were real and fake, it turns out that might be difficult. Shaffer wrote, “I’m a geek for all of the world-building stuff. I wanted to slip things like Kemp’s Spectral Field Guide into the book in such a way that you couldn’t tell which of the books were real, and which were fictional—even if you Google them, you might not know because we’ve buried fake covers around the web…”Fake covers?!?! After feverishly Googling for an “Occult Manifestation Index” and coming up with nothing, Heiss had to be addressed by Shaffer: “The Heiss backstory was just something that came up naturally. We wanted to connect some of the chapters on ghosthunters from the past to the present. I don’t remember whose idea it was to give skeptic Martin Heiss ancestors who believed in the paranormal, but it really works in the book and might provide some insight into his character in the movie.”The last section of the book mysteriously has a whole section about summoning ghosts blacked out… because of something that happens in the movie. The edition of Ghosts From Our Past that is for sale is set after the movie, so could the excerpts and updates give us a glimpse of where Ghostbusters goes in the future? There’s a reference to the existence of the multiverse in the book, so do the original Ghostbusters still exist out there somewhere?Shaffer brushes this direct connection away: “The idea of a Ghostbusters multiverse—where ghostbusting teams exist in side-by-side dimensions, allowing for crossovers—has been explored in Erik Burnham and Dan Schoening’s IDW Ghostbusters comics. While there’s mention of multiverse theory in Ghosts From Our Past, it’s just a passing mention. Alternate dimensions seemed like something Erin and Abby would be into, hence it made its way into the book. Wasn’t meant to be a hint at anything.” To his point, there’s also a whole subsection of a chapter on The X-Files along with a doodle of David Duchovny and nobody is asking if a crossover is possible.Ultimately, the expansion of the “endless” Ghostbusters franchise still has to weather the release of the film and the response it gets before moving forward. Sony and the marketing team are obviously aware of the multiversal option, but don’t prepare for the return of the original Ghostbusters quite yet, says Shaffer: “I agree with what Paul Feig has said about the possibilities of connected universes and crossovers, which is basically, ‘Let’s get this new movie under our belts first.’”Ghosts From Our Past is available now and contains additional content we didn’t even get to here, like a section of “Ghostbusting Resources” you can use for your own paranormal investigations. The movie that spawned the book and plans to rejuvenate the franchise comes out this Friday, July 15.last_img read more

first_imgYouTube App update launches with major UI changes by Martin Brinkmann on May 31, 2017 in Companies, Music and Video – Last Update: January 04, 2018 – 6 commentsGoogle launched a new version of the YouTube application today on iOS and Android which comes with major changes to the apps’ interface.Changing the interface of an app that has been around for some time is always a daunting task. It is almost guaranteed that part of the user base will dislike the change.Google notes that the update “provides a consistent layout across mobile” and “allows for easier navigation within the app”.The biggest change of the update is the moving of the top navigational bar to the bottom of the screen.  The old application on Android used the following layout.The main navigation tabs, Home, Trending and Subscriptions have been moved to the bottom of the screen in the updated YouTube application.While those three were moved to the bottom, Account was not. In fact, you find account a row higher from its initial position in the old layout; it is now located at the rightmost side of the top toolbar of the YouTube application.But Account does not list all the links anymore that it listed previously either, as some of them have been moved as well.If you are looking for your YouTube History, the videos you uploaded to YouTube (my videos), or your playlists, you will notice that they have been moved to the new library menu at the bottom of the screen.The top toolbar features new options as well. You find the new Cast button attached to it there, and there is a link to the camera of the device as well there now. The camera was previously available on the account page from where you could run a new show.So, Home, Trending, subscriptions and Library are at the bottom, account and search are still at the top, and Cast and Camera are two new options up there as well.Account lists settings and user account related information, while library anything that has to to with videos.One great new feature of the app is that it remembers now where you left off on each tab. If you scrolled down the trending videos for instance, switched to subscriptions, and go back to trending, you can continue where you left off before you switched tabs.One thing that is not so good is that Google removed the option to swipe to flip to another tab. This means that you need to tap on the icons now instead to switch from one tab to another in the application.Apple iOS users should have access to the new version of the YouTube application already if they have updated it to the latest version. The app roll out is slower on Android, where users get access to the feature gradually. If you don’t have access to it yet, you will have to wait until the roll out reaches your device.Now You: What’s your take on the new UI of the YouTube app? SummaryArticle NameYouTube App update launches with major UI changesDescriptionGoogle launched a new version of the YouTube application today on iOS and Android which comes with major changes to the apps’ interface.Author Martin BrinkmannPublisher Ghacks Technology NewsLogo Advertisementlast_img read more

first_imgWASHINGTON, D.C. – Twitter’s $1 billion stock offering suggests a cautious Wall Street debut by the popular messaging platform, careful to avoid the mistakes made by its larger counterpart Facebook last year, say analysts.“The surprise is that they are doing such a small deal,” said Michael Pachter, director of equity research at Wedbush Securities who follows tech companies.“I think that’s smart of them. The mistake Facebook made was they flooded the market with shares.”Twitter’s initial public offering (IPO) unveiled Thursday indicates the shares offered will be a relatively modest percentage of what Wedbush estimates as a valuation of around $15 billion.Twitter did not give a date for the IPO but said it would take place as “soon as practicable.”Pachter noted that the “relatively small initial public offering is intended to avoid the issues experienced by Facebook when it offered approximately $16 billion in stock, far more than the market appeared willing to absorb.”He added that Twitter and early investors appear to be “patient” and will wait before selling shares, to ensure the supply is limited.“I think this is being handled masterfully,” he told AFP.Lou Kerner, founder of the Social Internet Fund, said investor interest will be high because social media is “red hot” but that Twitter still has some leaning to do to make it more ubiquitous.“A lot of people go to Twitter and find it difficult to immediately get value from it,” he said.“That’s not because it’s not to be had, but it’s not as easy as with Facebook.”Other analysts meanwhile point out that the numbers provided in Twitter’s IPO filing failed to live up to the most optimistic estimates for growth in users and revenues.Twitter disclosed that it had 218 million monthly active users as of June 30 in a 44 percent increase from the same point a year earlier. It reported that it lost almost $80 million on some $317 million in revenue in 2012.Twitter brought in $253.6 million in revenue in the first half of this year, but remained in the red with a loss of about $69 million.“I think they are still very early in the value proposition of what they are offering,” Kerner said.Kerner noted that the number of active users “is still a huge user base, its only because of Facebook’s reach that we look at 200 million and aren’t as impressed.”Shea Bennett, who edits the All Twitter blog, which monitors the social media site, said the figures in the filing were “pretty underwhelming.”“For me, the biggest disappointment was Twitter’s slow rate of active user growth,” Bennett wrote.He said the chart provided by Twitter shows “a jump of just 14 million actives, or 6.8 percent, since March. What does this slow acquisition of sign-ups mean for Twitter’s future?”John Battelle, an Internet entrepreneur who helped launch Wired magazine and founded the online ad exchange Federated Media Publishing said Twitter’s revenue growth is “impressive” even if it does not quite measure up in some respects to giants like Google and Facebook ahead of their IPOs.Battelle said Twitter is profitable on the basis without counting items such as debt and amortization, “which is good, but not spectacular.”“So from a financial point of view, Twitter’s no Google. But it’s no slouch, either,” he wrote on his blog.“It’ll be very interesting to see what the company’s third quarter filings look like. My guess is they’ll be very strong – the company is far too smart to plan it any other way.”Trip Chowdhry at Global Equities Research argued meanwhile that investors should be highly cautious about putting money in the volatile sector.“I think the optimism in Twitter is misplaced,” he told AFP. “Twitter is a great company but at terrible valuations.”Chowdhry said he would value Twitter at no more than $3 billion, given “brutal competition” and hints that Internet users are turning to more “visual” social networks such as Pinterest, and Facebook’s Instagram.“I think the Twitter IPO marks the peak of the company, not the starting point of growth,” he said.Chowdhry said he also is looking for more disclosure from Twitter about its revenues, particularly whether its early investors are also among its advertisers. He said these kinds of relationships were problematic in the dot-com boom and bust.“We cannot make a judgment about the quality of the revenues,” he said.

first_img December 5, 2018 2,045 Views in Daily Dose, Featured, News, Origination Share Nonbanks tend to lend more to LMI borrowers than banks that fall under the CRA regulations, according to an analysis by the Urban Institute. The analysis was meant to help the Office of the Comptroller of Currency (OCC) strengthen its changes in regulations to the Community Reinvestment Act (CRA) proposed earlier this year and has been submitted as part of its Advanced Notice of Proposed Rulemaking (ANPR) on modernizing the CRA’s regulatory framework.The Urban Institute, with support from the National Association of Affordable Housing Lenders, analyzed data on both single-family and multifamily CRA lending as part of their comments to the ANPR rulemaking record. The analysis was designed around answering questions on the behavior of institutions subject to CRA versus those that don’t come under this act (nonbank originators and credit unions); the difference in behavior between small and large banks; the importance of banks to the communities they served as well as low- and moderate-income (LMI) borrowers in those communities; and the relative importance of small business, small farm, and community development lending through the CRA.For the analysis, the researchers used 2016 Home Mortgage Disclosure Act (HMDA) data and CRA files from the Federal Financial Institutions Examination Council.The analysis revealed that though nonbanks were not subject to CRA, they did a larger share of one-to-four-family mortgage lending to LMI borrowers than the banks, who were subject to the CRA, reflecting a wider credit box for nonbank originators. “Nonbanks do the overwhelming amount of Federal Housing Administration (FHA) lending, which disproportionately encompasses lending to LMI borrowers,” the analysis revealed.However, it said that banks made 72 percent of their one-to-four-family mortgage lending in their assessment areas, even though the percentage varied according to the size of the institution, with larger banks making a larger share of lending than midsize or small institutions. Despite this, the largest banks did lesser CRA-eligible one-to-four-family lending as a share of total lending in their assessment areas compared to midsize or smaller institutions.A higher proportion of multifamily lending was made out to LMI borrowers with a greater share of loans made out to multifamily units rather than single-family ones in banks’ assessment areas, making multifamily lending a heavier contributor to meeting CRA standards than lending volumes alone would indicate, the analysis said.To read the detailed analysis, click here.center_img Analyzing Lending Practices Under CRA Borrowers CRA HMDA homes HOUSING Lenders Lending LMI mortgage OCC Urban Institute 2018-12-05 Radhika Ojhalast_img read more

first_img 0 Comments   Share   The 5: Takeaways from the Coyotes’ introduction of Alex Meruelo “He was jumping around like a young fella out there today at practice,” head coach Bruce Arians said, smiling. “I think he was pretty excited.”And for good reason: it’s been six years since Palmer last played in the playoffs.Palmer, remember, missed out on the Cardinals’ playoff appearance last season because of a knee injury.“It’s a dream come true,” he said. “As the season starts, you dream of being in this position. You always want to make the playoffs, but to have that first-round bye and a chance to play all your games at home is pretty special. So, it’s a dream come true.”Palmer enjoyed the best season of his 13-year career, setting franchise records for passing yards, touchdowns and passer rating, among other marks.More importantly, he enters the NFL’s second season healthy.Palmer is more than a year removed from an ACL injury that ended his 2014 season in Week 10. Also, a finger injury that led soreness just below his shoulder is no longer an issue.“He’s over it,” Arians said. “We readjusted the tape job Saturday morning. He had a very sore lat (muscle) from changing his motion, which is very natural for pitchers when they come back and they throw, and they’ll get a sore lat. For a quarterback, it’s a weird feeling and it worried him some. But once we readjusted the tape job so that he could use his finger and come off the ball last, the soreness went away and he’s really good right now.” TEMPE, Ariz. – There was an extra bounce in the step of Arizona Cardinals quarterback Carson Palmer as he practiced on Wednesday, and it had everything to do with that day’s work.Maybe not so much because of the specific preparation — the Cardinals worked on Green Bay; they’ll focus on Minnesota and Washington the next two days to cover all three scenarios for their divisional round matchup — but because of what the preparation was for, the playoffs. Palmer dislocated his right index against Philadelphia. He missed one third-quarter snap, but otherwise showed no ill effects, outside of being forced to alter his throwing motion to keep his finger on the ball longer.The changed movement put a different strain on Palmer’s body.“Just from the dislocation, just having to throw it a little bit different is always different on your body. Certain muscles are so used to one specific pattern or one specific movement, and when you change that movement things get thrown out of whack,” he said. “We changed some things up with the way I treated it and the way I taped it, and it’s feeling much better. I haven’t had that issue much since.”When Palmer leads the Cardinals out onto the field next Saturday, Jan. 16 at University of Phoenix Stadium, it will be just his third-ever playoff game.There was the AFC Wild Card loss to the Jets in 2009 and a brief appearance in the Wild Card matchup against Pittsburgh in 2005, a game in which Palmer completed a 66-yard pass to Chris Henry on his first attempt but was injured on the play when he was hit low by Kimo von Oelhoffen, resulting in torn ACL and MCL ligaments in his left knee.

(AP Photo/Rick Scuteri) Palmer’s resume is missing a postseason victory.“I’m just excited about this (playoff appearance),” he said.  “I don’t think much about any other regular season game or playoff game. I’m just excited and thankful, kind of like I just said, for where we are right now; to have this bye and to have our first one at home and hopefully the second one, and then obviously, a chance to go to that third.  That’s what I think about.  I don’t think much about the past.” Grace expects Greinke trade to have emotional impact Derrick Hall satisfied with D-backs’ buying and sellinglast_img read more

first_imgBy Poly PantelidesCHILDREN in Cyprus have one of the highest obesity rates in Europe, making them more susceptible to diabetes, a stealthy chronic disease that may go undiagnosed for years, the health ministry’s deputy permanent secretary has said.Christina Yiannaki said that one in two people who have diabetes are unaware of the fact. She was talking during a news conference ahead of Thursday’s World Diabetes day.The health ministry previously said that one in six children in Cyprus were considered obese, close to one in four were overweight, while a third hovered on the highest limit of permitted cholesterol levels for their age.In early January, the international diabetes federation (IDF) said in its 2012 report some 83,810 people aged between 20 and 79 were estimated to have diabetes in Cyprus, a third of whom only find out between four and seven years after the onset of the disease. IDF said that 470 people died in Cyprus from diabetes-related complications last year.About 14,900 children in Cyprus aged up to 14 have been diagnosed with Type 1 diabetes, usually affecting children whose body can no longer produce the insulin it needs to control the levels of glucose in their blood, IDF said.The most common kind of diabetes is the lifestyle-related Type 2, usually developing in adulthood. Treatment may involve lifestyle changes and weight loss alone, medications or insulin injections. But Yiannaki warned that an increasing number of children in Cyprus were developing Type 2 diabetes.Over all, diabetes costs the government close to €4.0 million a year, she said.Diabetes occurs when the pancreas does not produce enough insulin, or when the body cannot effectively use the insulin it produces. Hyperglycaemia, or raised blood sugar, is a common effect of uncontrolled diabetes and over time leads to serious damage to many of the body’s systems, especially the nerves and blood vessels.Yiannaki said diabetes was the third most common cause of death in the world, and because of the complications related to the disease it ranked among the top ten diseases leading to adult disability.Over 366 million people are diabetics across the world, and the number could double by 2030 unless authorities manage to take preventative action, she added.The health ministry has identified treating and preventing diabetes as one of its priorities, and has been training health officials and nurses abroad to better staff the country’s clinics and health centres.  You May LikeDr. Marty ProPower Plus Supplement3 Dangerous Foods People Feed Their Dogs (Without Realizing It)Dr. Marty ProPower Plus SupplementUndoUltimate Pet Nutrition Nutra Thrive SupplementAdd This One Thing To Your Dog’s Food To Help Them Be HealthierUltimate Pet Nutrition Nutra Thrive SupplementUndoAngels And EntrepreneursRobert Herjavec Announce Venture Could Make You RichAngels And EntrepreneursUndo Concern over falling tourism numbersUndoTurkish Cypriot actions in Varosha ‘a clear violation’ of UN resolutions, Nicosia saysUndoIsraeli rape suspects freed, woman who alleged assault arrested (Updated)Undoby Taboolaby Taboolalast_img read more

first_imgThe leaders of the two communities must first come to an agreement on the way forward and then reach out to the UN Secretary General Antonio Guterres, a UN source said on Friday.A UN source quoted by the Cyprus News Agency said the positions voiced by the two leaders on having an informal conference were not enough as “both of them still have their conditions and that is not what the Secretary-General asks for. The Secretary-General asks for an agreement between them on when, how, where to proceed.”President, Nicos Anastasiades, expressed his readiness on Thursday to meet with Turkish Cypriot leader Mustafa Akinci, welcoming the latter’s proposal for an informal conference.The UN Secretary-General told the leaders at the end of the Conference on Cyprus in Crans-Montana two years ago that he wanted both of them to get back to him when they were ready with a plan on when, how, and where they want to meet and do a deal, and not before.The leaders, the source added, need to meet, have their discussion and agree on something before going to the secretary general.Each side has currently a different perspective as regards the convening of a conference, the Un source added.Asked if it would be better for a meeting in the presence of UN Secretary-General’s special envoy Jane Holl Lute, the source said it was up to the leaders to decide which people were involved.Lute has discussed the possibility of a conference with the two sides, the source said, adding that “Akinci talked to Lute about his proposal for a five-party conference.”Government Spokesman, Prodromos Prodromou, said Thursday that with his proposal to convene an informal conference with the same format as the one of that held in Crans-Montana, Akinci was essentially adopting one of the Anastasiades’ proposals that were submitted in writing to Guterres in a letter on June 14.On Friday, Akıncı said the Turkish Cypriot side wanted clarity from Anastasiades.“We see that this is also a growing desire among many members of the Greek Cypriot community. What does the Greek Cypriot leader want? What is his goal? What kind of a future does he envisage in Cyprus? Different statements at different venues or events should end,” the Turkish Cypriot leader said during a speech to mark the anniversary of the 1974 Turkish invasion.“He sometimes voices a two-state solution and a decentralised federation on another day. His talk for a parliamentary system with a permanent Greek Cypriot president and Turkish Cypriot vice-president and rotating prime minister instead of a rotational presidency has created confusion. How much more will the Greek Cypriot leader’s mixed messages continue? All these questions need to be answered at the informal five-party meeting I have requested the UN-Secretary General Antonio Guterres to convene,” he said.Pro-reunification group Unite Cyprus Now welcomed the development and called on all partied involved to put words into action and set aside any conditions for the benefit of the country.“It is crunch time for Cyprus and the success of this initiative could determine the future of the country. We call the guarantor powers to play a constructive role and refrain from actions that would damage or hinder this initiative. We expect all sides to act responsibly towards the people of the country and to avoid the blame game,” UCN said in a statement.“We expect commitment by all parties involved in reaching the best and only viable solution for a stable and united Cyprus, that of a bizonal, bicommunal federation so that we can become a normal country, which is what all the people of the island want.”Meanwhile, the UN Security Council will be briefed on Friday at 3pm New York time by the UN Secretary-General’s Special Representative and Head of the UN peacekeeping mission in Cyprus Elizabeth Spehar ahead of a vote on UNFICYP’s renewal.You May LikeCalifornia Earthquake AuthorityMake earthquake insurance a family priorityCalifornia Earthquake AuthorityUndoLivestlyChip And Joanna’s $18M Mansion Is Perfect, But It’s The Backyard Everyone Is Talking AboutLivestlyUndoIcePopMan Notices A Strange Hole In This Lake, So He Gets A Drone, Flies It Inside And Captures ThisIcePopUndo Nicosia will use ‘all diplomatic means at its disposal’ to counter Turkish actionsUndoBritain ramps up preparations for “very real prospect” of no-deal BrexitUndoA grotesque choice of prime minister for Britain?Undoby Taboolaby Taboolalast_img read more
