Meanwhile, 38 percent said the economy is on the right path, up from 35 percent in the last survey but still down from last year’s highs.Despite that gain in confidence, fewer respondents in the May survey expect their own financial situation to improve over the next year as household incomes show little improvement.Further, economic conditions remain a top concern among consumers who believe now is a bad time to buy or sell a home, said Doug Duncan, chief economist at Fannie Mae.”While recent housing activity suggests that the worst of the housing slump may be behind us, this caution among consumers supports our expectation that the rebound in home sales will likely be too modest to pull sales for all of 2014 ahead of last year,” Duncan said.Survey responses on housing suggest consumers might be taking greater notice of current market trends. As home price increases slow to a more moderate pace, the share of respondents who said prices will continue to rise over the next year fell to less than half, while the share expecting declines rose slightly to 7 percent.Overall, the average 12-month price change expectation was 2.9 percent, flat from April.Meanwhile, the number of respondents expecting mortgage rates to make any meaningful change—up or down—over the next year fell, while the share of Americans who believe it would be easy to get a mortgage today climbed up to 49 percent. The latter measure has alternated up and down each month since the start of the year.

first_imgTennis National Team of BiH will travel to Vilnius on Sunday, where they will play the match of the final, third round of the Davis Cup with selection of Lithuania in the II group of Europe/Africa zone from the 16th to 18th of September 2016.Our team includes the same players who defeated the Turkish team in July as part of 2nd round that was played in Bihac: Damir Dzumhur, Mirza Basic, Tomislav Brkic and Nerman Fatic.Captain Amer Delic is not able to lead our team in this round for family reasons, and his place in Vilnius will replace an experienced tennis coach Aljosa Piric, who was previously part of the BH team, among others, when our players made quite surprise when they defeated favored team of Finland in Helsinki back in 2014.For Lithuania will play: Laurynas Grigelis, Lukas Mugevicius, Tadas Babelis, Tomas Vaise and captain Rimvydas Mugevicius.This match is very important since it takes the winner on higher competition, in I group of Europe/Africa zone, which is the goal of our team. Representation of Lithuania was the one that stopped our tennis players on the way to the final round in 2014 in Sarajevo, but this time the role of favorite belongs to our selection due to better shape and personal ranking of our players, but also due to the fact that Lithuania’s best tennis player, Ricardas Berankis, will not be playing. However, the hosts are counting on home advantage and a huge support from the fans in the Siemens Arena in Vilnius, which receives 10 000 of spectators.Matches will be played on hard courts from the 16th to 18th of September, and the draw of pairs will be done on Thursday, the 15th of September 2016.(Source: klix.ba)last_img read more

first_imgARCADIA, Calif. (March 17, 2016)–Graded stakes winning Toews On Ice heads a field of seven sophomores in Santa Anita’s $75,000 San Pedro Stakes at six furlongs on Sunday. (Originally scheduled for this past Friday, March 11, the San Pedro was cancelled due to heavy rain and re-drawn this morning).TOEWS ON ICE: Trained by Bob Baffert and named for Chicago Blackhawks star center and captain, Jonathan Toews (pronounced TAVES), Toews On Ice was an impressive winner of the Grade III, seven furlong Bob Hope Stakes three starts back on Nov. 14 at Del Mar, but he comes off a disappointing sixth place finish as the 3-5 favorite in the one mile Smarty Jones Stakes at Oaklawn Park Jan. 18.Owned by Mike Pegram, Karl Watson and Paul Weitman, Toews On Ice, who is Triple Crown nominated, was a close second to his highly regarded stablemate Mor Spirit two starts back in the Grade I Los Alamitos Futurity on Dec. 19. A Kentucky-bred colt by Archarcharch, Toews On Ice has pressed or been on the early lead in all seven of his starts, resulting in three wins and earnings of $245,700.DENMAN’S CALL: Trained by Doug O’Neill, this Kentucky-bred gelding by Northern Afleet has done little wrong in two starts. A stylish 3 ¾ length first-out maiden special weight winner going 5 ½ furlongs here on Jan. 9, Denman’s Call hugged the rail en route to an impressive third place finish behind top Derby contender Nyquist in the Grade II, seven furlong San Vicente Stakes on Feb. 15–an effort that earned him a lofty 94 Beyer Speed figure. Owned by Gilman Racing, Westside Rentals.com or W.C.

first_imgA web of infinite information: does that sound like a scary problem of “just too much”? Venerable blogger Om Malik and Twitter co-founder Evan Williams agreed in an interview today that it is. Williams, as a founder first of Blogger.com and now of Twitter, is probably more responsible for the explosion of social data online than any other single person. Luckily, not everyone feels the same way about this historical moment. As the quantity of data produced and available thanks not just to blogging and social networks, but sensors, surveys and machine observation hockey sticks exponentially skyward – a growing number of people and institutions are embracing this change as an opportunity that could forever change the way we learn, communicate and understand the world. Hopefully the bloggers and social network creators of the world will participate with enthusiasm.To be fair, Williams himself recognizes the explosion of data on Twitter an an opportunity to deliver new and greater forms of value than his company does today. And Malik’s own company organizes a conference on big data called Structure. The language of “too much” and “scary problem” exists within a context, though. That context includes the Wall St. Journal’s fear-mongering series on social network data and advertising (“What They Know About You”), the stuggles between privacy and innovation (even in the US Federal government, where innovation is increasingly defended in the face of privacy concerns), the decline of sophisticated online tools like Delicious and RSS readers and the rise in polished, closed, proprietary systems of communication like Facebook. (“Grunt if you Like™ something or someone.”)“Revealing the hidden laws and processes underlying societies constitutes the most pressing scientific grand challenge of our century.” – Dr Helbing, of the Swiss Federal Institute of TechnologyTwitter is our open social graph. It’s our machine-accessible mega-river of links and social information. It’s very worrisome to hear the man in charge of the product say he “totally agrees” with the statement that there’s “just too much” information on the internet.He might recognize that his engineers need to process that information to make pretty packages for the millions of would-be users still living in the 20th century and intimidated by a fat stream of variably relevant information – but his engineers alone will never be able to bring as much to that challenge as a world of hackers can, as long as they have access to the data. For the leader to orient himself in this day and age away from showing outside parties the data is cause for concern. (This is something we’ve expressed concern about for at least the last 18 months, see How Twitter’s Staff Uses Twitter (And Why It Could Cause Problems).)What’s the other side of the coin? Free, open, available data as an incredible opportunity for improving the human experience probably saw its best articulation to date with the broadcast of the BBC’s new hour-long special The Joy of Stats, which you can view in full below.See also: R.I.P. Delicious, You Were So Beautiful to MeThe BBC also profiled this week a Swiss project dubbed the Living Earth Simulator (LES), a massive data project aiming to simulate as much natural and social activity on earth as possible. Those simulations, to be carried out on a scale inspired by the Large Hadron Collider, would aim to discover all kinds of patterns hidden in the mass of human and ecological data, including social network data.“Many problems we have today – including social and economic instabilities, wars, disease spreading – are related to human behaviour, but there is apparently a serious lack of understanding regarding how society and the economy work,” says to the BBC a Dr Helbing, of the Swiss Federal Institute of Technology, who chairs the FuturICT project which aims to create the simulator. “Revealing the hidden laws and processes underlying societies constitutes the most pressing scientific grand challenge of our century.”Do “too much data” warblers want to sit that grand challenge out? Do they want to impede it by stoking a culture of fear, rather than of support for investigation?Skeptics, even data-loving skeptics, note that data enough is not alone. As ReadWriteWeb contributor and data scientist Pete Warden told the BBC about the Living Earth Simulator, “It’s not that we don’t know enough about a lot of the problems the world faces, from climate change to extreme poverty, it’s that we don’t take any action on the information we do have.”That may be true, but data driven knowledge will help illuminate problems, their finer points, possible solutions and opportunities to galvanize public support for taking action.Don’t take my word for it, check out the fabulous BBC special with Dr. Hans Rosling below. Statistics, Rosling says, is the sexiest field in the world right now. More than just glitz and glamour, the ability to analyze an explosion of data promises new opportunities to really make a difference in the world.Hopefully people who have helped build the instruments that enabled that explosion, through the inclusion of new voices from throughout society, will be excited about that and will participate whole heartedly.Title image by nasa1fan/MSFC A Web Developer’s New Best Friend is the AI Wai… marshall kirkpatrick 8 Best WordPress Hosting Solutions on the Market Tags:#Data Services#Op-Ed#web center_img Top Reasons to Go With Managed WordPress Hosting Related Posts Why Tech Companies Need Simpler Terms of Servic…last_img read more

first_imgArsenal cannot afford £10m for Barcelona midfielder Suarezby Freddie Taylor10 months agoSend to a friendShare the loveArsenal have agreed with personal terms with Denis Suarez, but are struggling to come up with the £10m fee demanded by Barcelona. The Gunners are on a tight budget this month after spending in the previous three transfer windows.Marca believes the north London club have practically no money as they are unable to fork out £10m for the 25-year-old. Manager Unai Emery wants to add another winger to his squad and has pinpointed Suarez as a suitable option, having worked with him for one season at Sevilla.Barcelona have promised Suarez that he can leave this month, but they will continue to hold out for a fee.

first_imgOTTAWA – The plan to replace the navy’s warship fleet is officially sailing uncharted waters, with an important deadline for the $60-billion project having all but vanished.The government says it continues to work with industry to deliver the warships the navy needs, and that a new deadline will be set soon.But defence experts say the development is unprecedented, and raises fresh concerns about what is the largest planned military purchase in Canadian history.The federal government launched a competition last fall in which a dozen of the world’s largest defence and shipbuilding firms were asked to design potential replacements for the navy’s frigates and destroyers.The companies were initially given until the end of April to submit their designs, after which one would be selected for construction by Irving Shipbuilding in Halifax.But the competition is now in a state of limbo, with no established deadline for designs to be submitted since the government extended the competition for a second time in May.Both Public Services Minister Judy Foote’s office and Irving Shipbuilding, which is running the competition on the government’s behalf, confirmed that a new submission deadline has not been set.Officials initially said they needed more time to finish answering the approximately 560 questions that participating firms had asked about the bidding process since the competition was launched last fall.The focus now is on what is called a voluntary compliance review, in which companies can provide draft copies of their submissions to the government and Irving to ensure they are on the right track.Foote spokeswoman Mary-Rose Brown declined to say how many companies had decided to participate in the voluntary review, or when it will be complete.“When it comes to shipbuilding, we are committed to getting the women and men of the Royal Canadian Navy and the Canadian Coast Guard the equipment they need to do their jobs,” Brown said in an email.“We are committed to open, fair and transparent procurement processes. To maximize value for Canadians we continue to work in close partnership with industry.”Irving spokesman Sean Lewis said companies will be notified of the final submission deadline once the review is complete.The fact the design competition is currently sailing without an established end-date has sparked fresh concern about the project, which has already been under the microscope for years.“I haven’t heard of it before,” said Alan Williams, who served as National Defence’s top procurement official from 2000 to 2005. “How can you not have a deadline if you have a (competition)? It’s bizarro.”Williams worried that messing with the deadline while the competition is ongoing could open the government up to legal challenges from any company whose design isn’t chosen.“It can significantly damage the Crown in terms of legal action in the sense that someone could claim they would have won if they had simply set a date, but they kept dragging this out,” he said.Defence analyst David Perry of the Canadian Global Affairs Institute said his concern is that the uncertainty around this aspect of the competition is reflective of bigger issues within the warship project.There have already been questions about Irving’s role in running the competition, and anger from some companies that British firm BAE could enter its Type 26 vessel despite the ship having never been built.Defence officials and Irving have also previously warned that time is of the essence when it comes to starting construction, and that they are trying to shave 18 to 24 months off the project.And some companies have privately railed against the amount of valuable intellectual property they are being asked to hand over to the government and Irving in order to participate in the competition.“I think it’s unusual to have this level of effort and rework going into the bid documents after they’ve come out,” Perry said. “My sense is (the competition) just wasn’t ready for prime time when they released it.”– Follow @leeberthiaume on Twitter.last_img read more

first_imgVANCOUVER — Opponents of the Trans Mountain pipeline expansion are preparing for a long summer of legal challenges and protests aimed at blocking the project from being built.Rueben George of the Tsleil-Waututh Nation says it will file a legal challenge in the Federal Court of Appeal and he is confident the First Nation will be successful after Ottawa approved the project on Tuesday.Squamish Nation Coun. Khelsilem says his band is also prepared for legal action and Vancouver Mayor Kennedy Stewart says the city will join any lawsuits that are filed.Lawyer Eugene Kung says there are a number of legal arguments opponents could advance, including that it was impossible for the federal government to make an unbiased decision as the owner of the pipeline.But Eric Adams, a law professor at the University of Alberta, says the court may be uncomfortable setting a precedent that governments cannot approve projects they support.A 20-kilometre march is planned for Sunday from Victoria to the Saanich peninsula in solidarity with First Nations that are opposed to the project.The Canadian Presslast_img read more

first_imgINGERSOLL, Ont. – General Motors and the union representing about 2,500 striking workers at the CAMI assembly plant in Ingersoll, Ont., are expected to resume talks today aimed at ending a strike that’s into its fourth week.The members of Unifor Local 88 walked off the job a little more than three weeks ago on Sept. 17 as union negotiators worked to have GM designate the CAMI plant as the lead producer of the Equinox SUV.The union said last Thursday that the two sides had “worked through a lot of the contract language” but remained far apart on job security and economic issues.Local 88 president Dan Borthwick says the union’s master bargaining committee took a break over the Thanksgiving weekend and met this morning.He says the union’s position will remain the same as it was last Thursday when it meets with the company’s bargaining team.Job security at the CAMI plant has been a major issue, with Unifor seeking to prevent work done by its members from being moved to Mexico, where GM also produces the Equinox SUV.Ontario Economic Development Minister Brad Duguid said Friday that he had spoken with both sides and that neither had asked for government support to keep the Equinox lines in the province.Duguid said the dispute was “rippling through” Ontario’s supply chain economy and urged both parties to reach an agreement.Dias dismissed GM’s latest contract offer last week as “fluff,” saying it still allowed the company to shift resources away from the Ingersoll plant.last_img read more
