Majority of firsttime buyers maxed out budgets to buy a home CMHC

first_imgTORONTO – The country’s real estate market may be taking a breather, but a new survey suggests the vast majority of recent homebuyers are maxing out their budgets to purchase their first homes.In its annual mortgage consumer study, Canada Mortgage and Housing Corp. found that 85 per cent of first-time buyers reported spending the most they could afford on their property.Despite this, 76 per cent say they were still confident that they would be able to make their monthly mortgage payments.Sixty per cent of first-timers and 69 per cent of repeat buyers reported having “sufficient assets” such as investments or other properties to help them if they were to run into financial trouble with their mortgage.The federal housing agency, which has been conducting the survey since 1999, says housing affordability continues to be the most important factor cited among first-time and repeat homebuyers, when compared to other factors such as a property’s neighbourhood, proximity to work and condition.More than half of those concerned say their top worries included unforeseen costs, paying too much for their home and rising interest rates.The Bank of Canada has raised its key interest rate target four times to 1.5 per cent since July 2017. It is widely anticipated that the central bank will announce another hike at its next meeting on Oct. 24.Some housing markets across the country have already been feeling the cooling effects of higher interest rates coupled with some recently introduced measures like the new mortgage stress test and a 15 per cent foreign buyer tax in Ontario.Earlier this week, the Canadian Real Estate Association reported that national home sales fell for the first time in five months in September amid weakening markets in Vancouver and Toronto.Despite prices also flattening, the outlook on the national real estate market remains positive.The CMHC survey found that 80 per cent of homebuyers polled still believe that buying property is a good long-term financial investment. Sixty-six per cent believed their home value would increase within the next 12 months.The online survey, which was conducted in April, polled more than 4,000 Canadians who became mortgage consumers in the last year.The polling industry’s professional body, the Marketing Research and Intelligence Association, says online surveys cannot be assigned a margin of error as they are not a random sample and therefore are not necessarily representative of the whole population.Follow @LindaNguyenTO on Twitter.last_img read more

Sri Lanka offers to repatriate 10 Indian prisoners

Sri Lanka has offered to repatriate 10 Indian prisoners, currently serving their sentence in the island nation’s jails, to India to complete their remaining prison term.This was conveyed by Colombo to New Delhi through diplomatic channels saying it wanted to send the prisoners back as part of a pact signed by Sri Lanka and India on exchange of prisoners in 2010, official sources said. The Home Ministry is now in touch with the state governments and discussing with them where to lodge the prisoners to spend their remaining period of sentence once they are repatriated from Sri Lanka, sources said. Most of the Indian prisoners in Sri Lanka are from Tamil Nadu and Kerala. Majority of Indians were convicted in Sri Lanka for drugs-related offences, crossing over of international maritime boundary and other crimes. (PTI) read more

BC premier congratulates Trump but glad ugly election is over

RICHMOND, B.C. – British Columbia’s premier is congratulating incoming American president Donald Trump, but says she’s glad the “ugly, terrible affair” of the election campaign is over.Christy Clark said the United States is a close friend and partner of the province and her job is to work with Trump to get the best deal for the province on issues such as the softwood lumber agreement.The softwood deal reached by the federal government in 2006 expired more than a year ago and negotiations to renew it are continuing as B.C., one of the world’s largest exporters of softwood lumber, tries to promote its wood products globally.“Remember, a president also works with a senate and congress so I’m sure that president-elect Trump will reflect the views of all of those people who’ve been elected in this campaign, not just himself, because it’s a complex system,” Clark told reporters Wednesday after an unrelated event.Clark said during the presidential race that women’s equality in politics was suffering because of the toxic tone of the American election campaign.She also condemned Trump then for lewd remarks he was caught saying on video more than a decade ago about touching women without their consent.On Wednesday, the premier said one positive that came out of the campaign was that young women around the world got to see that a woman can compete for “the most important office in the land.”“I think that was an important win in and of itself,” she said.“I would say to young women, if you want to be successful in British Columbia, the examples abound. But I would also say to women, don’t get dispirited.”Vancouver Mayor Gregor Robertson said it’s too early to speculate on the impact the Trump win would have on the city.“Certainly, many people are hurting after such a bitter campaign, with far too much racism and sexism,” he said.“I think the United States and everyone connected to it have a lot of healing to do right now.”Robertson spoke against Trump’s proposal for a ban on Muslim immigrants last December, when he sent a letter to a developer. He urged the developer to drop Trump’s name from a tower being built in the city, saying the presidential hopeful’s “hateful positions” had no place in Vancouver.On Wednesday, he said it was hard to accept the content of the election campaign.“The racism and sexism are a huge concern in a city like Vancouver that’s so committed to inclusion and people of all walks of life being together and living in harmony.” by The Canadian Press Posted Nov 9, 2016 12:04 pm MDT Last Updated Nov 9, 2016 at 6:59 pm MDT AddThis Sharing ButtonsShare to TwitterTwitterShare to FacebookFacebookShare to RedditRedditShare to 電子郵件Email B.C. premier congratulates Trump, but glad ‘ugly’ election is over British Columbia Premier Christy Clark holds up a giant pair of scissors after cutting a ribbon at the new facility for the Pacific Autism Family Network in Richmond, B.C.

Woman found unconscious in home with dead husband takes life weeks

The house where the couple lived in Cummings LodgeA few weeks after a 35-year-old miner, Kevin Dawson died, his young wife on Monday morning committed suicide at her parents home in Charity, Essequibo, where she was residing.This is according to grieving family members of the now deceased, Cindy Dawson.The audibly distressed relatives were reluctant to reveal more information surrounding the woman’s death to the media.Inews had previously reported that on June 5, 2017, the now dead Dawson was found lying unconscious several feet away from her husband’s deteriorating body, in the home they shared in Cummings Lodge, lower East Coast Demerara.Deceased: Cindy and Kevin Dawson in happier timesInformation provided at the time suggested that the young woman, who is a nursery school teacher, did not report to work. As such, her friends and family called on her, but received no answer.When they visited her home, a foul stench was emanating from the building and Dawson was found shortly after.Police had reported that the post mortem examination conducted on her husband –who had been dead for at least two days prior- outlined that he died from Malaria and Typhoid.Investigators believed that Dawson fainted when she returned home from work and found her husband dead.The duo had reportedly been together for some years, and got married months before Kevin Dawson passed away.

Newtrax helps Goldex mine achieve true fleet data visibility and management

first_imgThe Goldex mine is part of the chain of operations and properties that Agnico Eagle Mines owns in the Abitibi region of northwestern Quebec. Like many underground mines, Goldex saw an opportunity to improve the visibility of maintenance and operations of their underground mobile equipment. Their objective was to find a way to better prevent vehicle maintenance downtime and become ultimately more efficient in their operations. One of the big challenges that most underground mines face is the difficulty in gathering data homogeneously when dealing with a mixed fleet of mobile equipment. Most mines will have fleets of multiple different OEMs that either don’t gather data or that do in very different ways, which makes it difficult to see the overall picture of what is really going on underground. Ultimately, having limited visibility on the data of the overall fleet can interfere with operations and the mines overall productivity. Goldex was looking for a solution that would help to bridge that gap, and in 2015, enlisted the help of Newtrax and began implementing Mobile Equipment Telemetry Solutions (MET). Over the last two years Goldex has seen improvements in their productivity and accurate maintenance predictions. MET solutions provide mine operators with essential data that can be pulled directly from any mining equipment. In the case of Goldex, this meant that they were able to attach sensors to their underground mining vehicles that could then communicate with the dashboard systems above ground. MET systems are used to collect massive amounts of data, and having the capability to access the data empowers the workers to make better decisions. Once mining companies collect the right data to analyse, they can then begin to understand the precise manner in which their machines are being used, how well each individual machine is functioning, and can offer predictive suggestions to increase both productivity and lower their costs.center_img Most operational mine keeps detailed reports and logs of day-to-day data. However, these reports have typically looked more like excel spreadsheets which are filled in manually. What Newtrax wanted to provide was a more visual way to collect and analyse data. To do this, Newtrax integrated an easy to use dashboard within the MET system. This provided mining operators the ability to navigate and control the collected data. The importance of visualisation is amplified when working with big data. Many people find the massive amounts of data to be intimidating and overwhelming. Having a simple interface that is user-friendly allows for better comprehension of the gathered materials.Goldex now has access to four different kinds of reports, these include:     Microsoft PowerBI Dashboards     Summary Reports     Detailed Event Logs     Detailed Graphical ReportsThese four reports make up the high-performance dashboard and take the big data that is collected and simplify the information down into understandable content.Newtrax was also able to create alarms that would appear on the dashboard in the event of an issue. The dashboard monitors and allows for visibility in the following areas:     Maintenance     Tyre Pressure     Shift Start and End Times     Operator Practices Reports     Payload Reports     Standard Production TimeAs an example, Newtrax installed Payload Monitoring Systems that were attached to each haul truck and worked in-sync with the MET system. The Payload Monitoring System would monitor and weigh each load that was carried up by the haul trucks. This system was implemented when mining operators realised that haul trucks, on average, were only carrying up about 60% of their load capacity. Since it has been in operation, the Payload Monitoring System has increased payloads and therefore can result in increased productivity.last_img read more

Unisonie shut down this week and users say they werent notified

first_imgUSERS OF EMAIL service are complaining of being left high and dry after the service was discontinued earlier this week.Users who contacted have said that when attempting to access their accounts they received an error message simply saying “server is not responding”.The email was a free service provided with the Unison set top box from a Chorus/Internet Ireland joint venture in 2000.Digiweb, who now own Internet Ireland, have confirmed that the servers hosting the service have run to end of life and they will not be repaired.Digiweb say that this plan was flagged as far back as 2007 when was operated by Indepdendent News & Media. They say that at the time INM advised users that support for the service was being withdrawn and would run until the servers failed but not after.Digiweb acquired Internet Ireland, and with in the legacy servers, in 2010 and say that the original plan was kept in place until this month when the severs failed.This has not satisfied some users of the email however, they have complained that no notice was given that the accounts were to about to go.According to one user, when they contacted Digiweb to find out why the service had been cut without notice they were informed that: “Digiweb emailed everyone six years ago to tell them that would not longer be supported”.The user says they have asked for an emailed copy of this notification but have not yet received such confirmation. A request was also made to Digiweb to continue the service for another 30 days to allow users to migrate to another account, this was refused according to the user:As you can imagine, it is a major problem for people like me to have to contact everyone and tell them that their email address no longer works, not to mention the various websites providing membership services where it is the primary contact,Facebook,, Amazon etc.Other email holders have taken to the discussion forum to search for a remedy, with some suggesting that Digiweb attempt to put a system in place to forward emails onto new accounts.This would seem highly unlikely however with the server already having failed.Read: email users slam ‘disgraceful’ decision to end service >Read: Tourism Ireland buys ‘’ URL from The Irish Times >last_img read more

In a move of patriotism, with his friend about to attend the Naval Academy, they decided to refurbish the pole and put up a brand new American flag. Since then it’s become a community treasure, seen from as far as the I-15, Poway and Rancho Rensquitos and kept in good condition by hikers.But Wednesday Weiss said he was filled with frustration, anger and disappointment, unable to imagine why someone would destroy the pole and burn the flag, a move that he suggested could have led to a fire.Weiss said the saddness is short-term, as the flag is sure to be replace as soon as possible, with Sabre Spring residents on high alert.

Harlem Park Community Assc Working to Restore Neighborhood

first_imgPopulation loss and vacancy are the biggest problems facing Harlem Park. (Photo by Tiffany Ginyard)There’s a buzz going around Harlem Park that change is coming.But first, members of the Harlem Park West Community Association (HPW) are working to bring some old things back— like the activism and leadership that helped this neighborhood thrive in its heyday.Harlem Park West Community Association was formed in April 2015, in response to the death of Freddie Gray, an unarmed black male who died in police custody, that same month. The board of directors is mostly comprised of people outside of the community, save the organization’s president, Joy Ross, who purchased her home on Fulton Avenue in 2014.“We just get out there and get things done,” Ross told the AFRO. “We want the people here to know that, in spite of the current structure and conditions, we are people that really care.”Historically, Harlem Park was a mixed-income Black community. Today, the median income is $27,000, the unemployment rate is 51.8%, and about 45% of the community is vacant, according to the 2010 Census. What was once a spiritual and cultural epicenter for Blacks living on Baltimore’s West side is now an eyesore. Vacant lots are littered with bulk trash, blocks of abandoned properties draw criminal activity, and desolate playgrounds give an air of hopelessness. This has been the scene in Harlem Park for decades too long.In just eight short months, HPW have made great strides on the home front. The beautification process is well underway– scheduled neighborhood clean up days have brought residents out of their homes and closer together; trees are sprouting from green spaces that were once vacant lots covered in concrete; and solution-oriented conversations are being held at least twice a month at the Harlem Park West Community Association meetings.However, the association’s biggest challenge so far has been boosting morale among the residents–people who, by and large, are scratching to survive and have lost faith in authority figures like the government and the police. They are all too familiar with broken promises– one being the “miracle interstate” project that was supposed to connect I-70 to downtown, now known as “the highway to nowhere,” and most recently the Red Line project, canceled by Gov. Larry Hogan last year. These were projects that would have brought major redevelopment and restoration to Harlem Park and the surrounding communities, but instead the blight continues.“I know it sounds cliché, but the power really rests with the people. It always has and it always will,” board member Ronald Bailey, said. Bailey has been a community organizer for over 20 years and has strong ties to Harlem Park. His role on the HPW board is to organize resources through partnership development. “I know the potential this community has, I grew up here. And I refuse to lay down and play dead.”Ross and her team say they are no longer waiting for things to turn around. The goal this year is to engage residents in what has already been started, and build more momentum from there. Part of the work is empowering and educating the residents on how to make change in their community, one household at a time.“We just do,” Ross said. “We are teaching people to own their responsibility as citizens. We don’t need another piece of legislation or proposal to get out there and do what needs to be done.”One of the strongest partnerships HPW has is with A Step Forward (ASF), a community outreach organization that focuses on getting people off the streets by providing housing and support services for individuals who are homeless, reentering the community following incarceration, recovering from substance abuse or facing other life-altering challenges.“We work closely with the neighborhood association to try to utilize our resources to help assist in any way,” Lela Campbel, ASF’s founder and executive director, told the AFRO. “The clients we serve participate in trash pick up, assist with the door-to-door campaigns, and have a general commitment to this community.”Harlem Park West has also joined hands with BUILD (Baltimoreans United in Leadership Development), TRF Development Partners, the Sports Mentor’s Association, Roots and Branches Charter School and Kirby Lane Association.“Last year we set out to make positive change in Harlem Park West,” said Ross, “and it’s already happening.”last_img read more

Artisanal wooden MAME cabinet with projector doubles as classy furniture

first_imgRather than hunting through Craigslist or eBay for an old arcade cabinet that you can put in your living room, designer Love Hulten created this wonderfully crafted wooden cabinet that won’t stick out like a sore thumb. Dubbed the R-Kaid-Redelux, the cabinet combines MAME, which is an arcade game emulator, and Maximus Arcade, which is software that allows access to different emulators — all kept within a polished wood housing.The controllers are built into the unit, but are wireless, so they can detach without the mess of being tethered. They’re made of polished wood as well, so they uniformly fit the overall aesthetic. The unit also makes use of an optional trackball (as some arcade games just aren’t the same without it) which can be magnetically docked.The unit is kept compact not with a tiny screen, but by not including a screen at all. R-Kaid-Redelux includes a 300 ansi mini projector, so the unit can remain a small size and be more easily moved between rooms. In the above video, Hulten shows off the unit in action, playing Street Fighter 2 and Metal Slug 2, which are only two of the 1,000 or so games held on the i3 PC rig kept inside the wooden frame.The Redelux is an upgrade of the R-Kaid-6, a unit Hulten built in 2011.If you’re into this piece, or would like to check out (or own) some of Hulten’s other work, head on over to his portfolio, where he notes that some of his pieces can be reproduced or put on sale.last_img read more

These Companies Are Building an Autonomous Car Platform

first_img 2 min read August 24, 2016 This story originally appeared on PCMag Growing a business sometimes requires thinking outside the box. Mobileye and Delphi Automotive are teaming up to build an autonomous driving system that carmakers can add to their vehicles as early as 2019.The companies’ so-called Central Sensing Localization and Planning (CSLP) platform is geared towards car makers that might not want to spend millions on self-driving technology R&D. With CSLP, Delphi and Mobileye will offer Level 4 or 5 autonomous driving capability, in which Level 0 is where a driver controls all aspects of the car and Level 5 is a fully self-driving car that doesn’t even have a steering wheel or pedals. Delphi and Mobileye will demo their solution at CES 2017 and start fleeting testing shortly thereafter in order to start production by 2019.The companies declined to provide exact details on the deal, though Delphi CEOKevin Clark said during a conference call that it’s worth “hundreds of millions of dollars.” Delphi and Mobileye have actually worked together on various projects for 15 years, but this effort will “build a new class of machine intelligence capable of mimicking human driving capabilities,” said Mobileye’s Chairman and CTO, Amnon Shashua.In June Mobileye announced a deal with Intel and BMW to produce self-driving cars by 2021. When asked about that today, Shashua waved off concerns that BMW might be irked to hear that other car makers will get a self-driving solution before it does. The Delphi deal is “complementary,” he said.”The goal here is to build a solution for customers and BMW is a customer,” he responded. Whatever Mobileye does with Delphi will help BMW in the long run. And while Delphi and Mobileye want a production-ready solution by 2019, it might not get into cars until 2021, depending on when car makers buy in, the same time the BMW solution would arrive.Delphi, meanwhile, was selected earlier this month to provide vehicles and compatible software for a fleet of autonomous taxis in Singapore. Trials of six Audi SQ5s will continue for three years, before the commuter program goes live in 2022.Delphi already operates a self-driving fleet in Silicon Valley, and completed a coast-to-coast autonomous trip across the U.S. last year. The company is also eyeing pilot programs in North America and Europe. Register Now » Free Webinar | Sept. 9: The Entrepreneur’s Playbook for Going Globallast_img read more

Skys the limit Farnborough sales cheer aviation industry

first_imgWhile the value of 2010 orders falls markedly short of the last show (UDS87 billion in 2008 – before the global recession), it easily outstripped the USD7 billion orders made at Farnborough’s sister show at Le Bourget last year. “The 2010 show has been very successful and the figures demonstrate [a] mood of strong optimism…which is very encouraging given the current global economic climate,” Aerospace, Defence and Security Trade Organisation Chairman Ian Godden said. Despite the sales upswing, that two newly created plane leasing companies were among the biggest buyers suggests many airlines still cannot finance their purchases, reported the Associated Press. Airbus bested rival Boeing, announcing last week firm orders for 133 aircraft worth USD13.2 billion. Boeing’s commitments came in at USD12.8 billion, not including a USD 2.6 billion American Airline deal signed away from the show. These firm orders came from plane leasing companies, GE Capital Aviation Services and Air Lease Corporation, as well as airlines, Aeroflot, Garuda Indonesia and Germania. According to media reports, Boeing chief executive Jim McNerney claimed future deliveries indicate Boeing will regain market leadership over Airbus in the next couple of years. Airbus announced they further received memorandum of understanding agreements for 122 aircraft to the value of USD15 billion from Hong Kong Airlines, Virgin America and Thai Airways International. Source = e-Travel Blackboard: G.A “It certainly shows that airlines are moving increasingly towards the leasing model as they try to defer their assets and focus on their core business, which is transferring passengers from A to B,” Frost & Sullivan commercial aviation analyst Max Sukkhasantikul told the news agency.The final trade figures will be announced early this week. Latest trade figures from this year’s Farnborough International Airshow of USD47 billion suggest the aviation industry is on the mend and up in spirits. “This clearly proves that the market is back, and that our new end of year target for over 400 orders is within reach,” Airbus Chief Operating Officer John Leahy said. <a href=”” target=”_blank”><img src=”;cb=INSERT_RANDOM_NUMBER_HERE&amp;n=a5c63036″ border=”0″ alt=””></a>last_img read more
