But Maida suggests there’s value in revealing the steps they’ve taken to mend fractures that formed throughout 19 years of marriage and parenting three children. “I don’t think we’re embarrassed by it,” the Our Lady Peace frontman says while sitting alongside his wife. “I would’ve been five years ago.”Canadian musical couple Chantal Kreviazuk and Raine Maida (Publicity photo)Kreviazuk chimes in with a more decisive perspective on the emotional rawness she portrays in the counselling sessions.“I think it would be great to not be embarrassed of that — if we could all not be so worried about what other people think,” she says.“I love excellence but the place I most want it is in my home and with my partner. That’s my No. 1 priority.”At the centre of “I’m Going to Break Your Heart,” showing at Calgary’s National Music Centre on Feb. 8, is the quest for the couple to rediscover passion for each other through music.After five years of stalled plans, they resolve to escape their daily demands and temporarily resettle in Saint Pierre and Miquelon, a self-governing archipelago off the coast of Newfoundland that’s a territory of France.The isolated environment offers the setting for their project Moon vs. Sun, in which they create and perform music as a duo, to finally take shape. Kreviazuk and Maida push through late-night songwriting sessions where they clash over how to express their vision. Their single “Lowlight” is due for release on Friday.Planning to bring their project to cities across the country as part of a concert tour later this year, they’ll also launch a podcast tentatively called “The Together Space” which interviews other couples who collaborate in their work.“I don’t think you’d really understand these songs if you don’t (see) how they were conceived — that context is so crucial,” Maida says.“It doesn’t really make sense to just show the songwriting if you don’t show the process of us in a relationship.”Shaping that footage into a documentary proved more frustrating than either of them expected, Maida says. Certain editors felt the story thrived on the clashes, rather than the creation of their album, so he says they would splice together separate therapy sessions to ratchet up the conflict.“We saw some edits that we were like, ‘Why are you trying to make us look like we don’t love each other?”‘ Kreviazuk adds, pointing out they’ve participated in marriage coaching for 12 years.“You can really play with that (and) make it look like dart after dart with no space for healing.”Maida, 48, says watching an outsider’s version of the film take shape led him to seriously consider learning post-production software so that he could recut the film himself.“I saw how quickly a choice could be made that just shifted the whole thing,” he says.“It was inauthentic. Never mind it made us look terrible, it was like you’re telling lies now. We’re trying to be as real, open and honest as possible and now you’re manipulating that. And so, you’re fired. And so we went through this process for a year.”Eventually the documentary began screening for test audiences in Los Angeles and the couple listened while others dissected their relationship. Fingers were pointed in both directions, with some saying Maida acted like a jerk while Kreviazuk came across as needy.“People were laughing,” Maida remembers. “They were angry. They said, ‘Would you get divorced?”‘Kreviazuk, 44, says she’s come to accept that viewers might insert their own experiences into her marriage, but she prefers to focus on the positivity the documentary is bringing out.Since the film’s trailer debuted earlier this month she’s heard fans say it inspired them to reconnect with their own partners. She’s saving those messages on her phone as a reminder that speaking about the ups and downs of their marriage has rewards.“I don’t really care if somebody thinks it’s a fail, because all I see here is a massive success,” Kreviazuk says.“I often feel like we’ve been together so long that it’s him and I against the world. I really love that.”By David Friend | The Associated Press – Follow @dfriend on Twitter.last_img read more

UN peacekeeper DR of Congo troops and scores of Ugandan rebels killed

A United Nations peacekeeper from India, soldiers of the Armed Forces of the Democratic Republic of the Congo (FARDC) and leaders of a Ugandan rebel movement were among the scores of people killed as the Congolese troops took back nine localities in the troubled eastern region of the country, the UN Mission in DRC (MONUC) reported today.The Indian peacekeeper who died Sunday was one of 1,000 MONUC forces supporting about 4,000 national Armed Forces of DRC (FARDC) troops, who have been conducting operations against armed rebel groups so as to restore the authority of the Congolese State. Another four peacekeepers were wounded, with one of the four having been seriously wounded. The operation, called “Ituri Eden,” began north of the Ituri district’s capital of Bunia against the armed group headed by Peter Karim Udaga, a former leader of the predominantly ethnic Lendu militia, the Nationalist and Integrationist Front (FNI), according to MONUC.Some 1,500 FARDC soldiers, supported by 300 Nepalese peacekeepers, have been involved in the operation, pushing forces loyal to Karim in a northeasterly direction towards the Ugandan border. Several of Karim’s followers were killed in firefights, the town of Nioka was cleared of armed former militiamen, and two of Karim’s bodyguards were captured, in addition to 17 weapons and a truck loaded with precious woods, the mission said. The FARDC casualties totalled 16 wounded and six dead, while the armed rebel groups were believed to have sustained around 90 casualties.MONUC General Narena Satiya told the mission’s Radio Okapi that two rebel leaders, whom he named as Parada and Amosi, were killed, another called Bosco fled into the hills of Ruhengeri, while a fourth, Luini, was seriously wounded.In the radio interview FARDC General Mbuyi added that his troops seized several items, including 41 weapons and a solar panel. read more

Hailing British donation for Sudan UN food agency urges more global aid

WFP is rebuilding more than 3,000 kilometres of roads in the war-ravaged region at a cost of $183 million, the agency said in a news release. Two decades of fighting between the north and the south, which ended last year, almost completely destroyed southern Sudan’s road network.“The UK Government’s donation will allow us to continue our work for only so long. We urge donors to open their hearts and their wallets so we can finish the entire roads project on time and provide a peace dividend to the people of southern Sudan,” said WFP Sudan Regional Director Ramiro Lopes da Silva.Voicing gratitude for the contribution, he said it would help the agency “make urgently required interventions to keep strategic links open” as the rainy season begins in a few months.Mr. Lopes da Silva said the money would be used immediately to do emergency repairs to two bridges and sections of carriageway between Kaya on the Ugandan border and the town of Rumbek, which is WFP’s most important logistical hub within southern Sudan.The money will also be spent clearing landmines from key roadways across the country, the agency said.“The road project will dramatically reduce the cost of delivering goods and will facilitate the reopening of market linkages, which is crucial to rebuilding the country, provide a safe passage for hundreds of thousands of returning refugees and leave a lasting legacy to the people of Sudan long after WFP’s work is done,” said Mr. Lopes da Silva.Since late 2003, WFP has rebuilt roughly 1,400 kilometres of roads, repaired bridges and culverts, and removed and destroyed some 200,000 pieces of unexploded ordinance. Apart from the roads, WFP is also looking for $746 million from donors in 2006 for its emergency operation to feed more than 6 million people in Sudan. read more

Manufacturing sales up 17 per cent beats economist expectations

by The Canadian Press Posted Feb 13, 2015 8:18 am MDT OTTAWA – Statistics Canada says manufacturing sales rose 1.7 per cent in December, despite a sharp drop in petroleum and coal products.The increase topped the gain of 0.5 per cent reading that economists had expected.The federal agency says in the increase was fuelled by sales of motor vehicles, which gained nine per cent in December after falling in November.Sales of machinery grew 5.2 per cent in December to their highest level since November 2011.Excluding the petroleum and coal product industry, which fell 9.3 per cent, manufacturing sales were up 3.2 per cent.Sales increased in seven provinces in December, led by Ontario, Quebec and B.C.

Opinion Ohio State should be on its way to becoming a hockey

Ohio State junior forward Dakota Joshua celebrates his second period goal against Denver in the NCAA Tournament on March 25, 2018. Credit: Nick Hudak | Lantern photographerBoston College. Minnesota. Wisconsin. Three established hockey programs, three established “hockey schools” and the only three programs to have both a men’s and women’s team in the Frozen Four in the same season.The only three, that is, until last Sunday, when Ohio State joined the list.This season, the women’s hockey team swept the No. 1 team in the country in Wisconsin, and the men’s hockey team beat Michigan five times, more than any team in the program’s history.The teams are performing as the school’s top programs, and they both should only get better next year. So, with football and basketball usually in the spotlight, how can Ohio State build on its success and become a hockey school?Success in the upcoming seasons will definitely help, however it only goes so far — as the pistol and synchronized swimming teams will tell you. It would take a shift in the culture for Ohio State to resemble anything of a “hockey school,” but it could be well on its way.Football will always be king at Ohio State. But there’s no reason to think Ohio State hockey should not be spoken in the same breathe as Boston College, Minnesota and Wisconsin.There are already plans on the table for a new hockey arena that would allow Ohio State’s attendance — which finished eighth in the NCAA, but bottom five in percent of arena capacity — to create more of a fan-friendly atmosphere than it does in the massive Schottenstein Center where it plays now.On the other side, the proposed capacity of 4,000 and the ability to have an established hockey-specific location would help the women’s hockey team, which plays in one of the smallest and most outdated venues in the nation.And with hype around the two programs at a high level, it’s convenient a new arena is on the horizon.When the project is completed, it will be up to the respective teams to continue the success they have shown this season.Fortunately for Ohio State, both teams look to be strong in both depth and coaching. Steve Rohlik and Nadine Muzerall both earned coach of the year honors in their respective conferences, and both teams were led in points by underclassmen. The women’s hockey team has two freshmen stars in Emma Maltais and Tatum Skaggs and still has redshirt junior goalie Kassidy Sauve for another season.The accolades don’t stop at the college level. Eleven players from Ohio State are currently playing in the NHL, which only helps to shift attention to a program that has made only two Frozen Fours.The future is more than bright for the hockey programs — it’s glowing, and a new hockey arena would bring more attention to a sport that is undeservedly flying under the radar. Even with the most successful year of hockey Ohio State — and Columbus, for that matter — has ever seen, it takes more than good seasons to shine at a school with a football team that is expected to contend for a title every season. Oh yeah, a basketball team rising faster than anyone predicted doesn’t help shifting focus toward the hockey programs and getting students into seats, either.You know what does help? A national championship, a new arena, a new reason to care and a new sense of consistency that’s never been there before. The talent is there for the future, but if the men’s hockey team can make history on April 7 with a national championship, the establishment of Ohio State as a hockey powerhouse might be coming sooner rather than later. read more

Tall Players Like Joel Embiid Are More Prone to Injury

This was never supposed to be Joel Embiid’s draft. College stars Jabari Parker and Andrew Wiggins were expected to be the frontrunners for 2014. But as the NCAA season began, Embiid, a center for Kansas, amazed, prompting his coach to compare him to Hakeem Olajuwon. He was ascendant — the kind of guy an NBA team tanks for.Then came the injuries. Embiid sprained his left knee early in the season and suffered a bone contusion, missing only one game. Later, right before the Big 12 tournament, doctors diagnosed him with a spondylolysis, a stress fracture in his lower back. The injury forced him out of the NCAA tournament but not out of the NBA draft. Many draft boards had him going first, convinced that teams would see the potential beyond the injuries.But last week Embiid had surgery to repair a stress fracture in the navicular bone of his foot. He’s reported to be out four to six months, and with the draft on Thursday there’s no telling where he’ll fall. USA Today now projects that Embiid will be the third pick and an NBA.com consensus mock draft projects him at fifth.Teams may be right to show concern about Embiid’s injuries, in part because of his height. Embiid is listed as 7’ tall by ESPN. Examining recent high draft picks reveals that taller players have gone on to miss a larger percentage of games than their shorter peers. Since 2000, 97 players 6’9” and taller have been drafted by teams with lottery selections (the first 13 or 14 picks in the draft, depending on the year). These players missed 17.9 percent of their potential NBA games (regular season and postseason, where appropriate) to injury over the course of their careers, while the 95 players 6’8” or shorter missed just 13.5 percent. The percentage of games missed generally increases as height increases. Players 7’0” or taller have missed nearly 24 percent of their games.That doesn’t factor in Embiid’s specific injuries. The navicular bone injury is the most troubling. The navicular is one of the tarsal bones located in the mid-foot, and an injury to the area is significant. In Embiid’s case, it required surgical intervention.Other players have had navicular fractures (it was the only injury to sideline Michael Jordan for an extended period of time in Chicago), but it’s been fairly uncommon the last few years. I keep a database of every injury in the NBA for any player who’s played since 2009, including each player’s entire injury history, even if the injury took place before 2009. Only seven affected NBA players out of a possible 900+ in my data set had a navicular fracture.Perimeter players including Jordan and Minnesota Timberwolves guard Kevin Martin both fared well following navicular fractures. But unfortunately for Embiid, the precedent set by big men to suffer the injury doesn’t inspire much confidence. In three of the seven navicular cases (including for perimeter and post players), the fracture reoccurred or additional surgery was needed. All three players (Curtis Borchardt, Zydrunas Ilgauskas and Yao Ming) stood 7 feet or taller. There’s another seven-footer, too, whose prognosis we’re not sure of yet: Brendan Haywood suffered a navicular fracture in October 2013 and didn’t play a minute this year for Charlotte. We’ll have to wait to see how his foot holds up.Small sample size, of course, but it begins to tell us what teams might be able to expect from Embiid. And there are always outliers. The careers of Kevin McHale (who played too long ago to be included in my database) and Ilgauskas provide some optimism. McHale bounced back following his injury in the 1987 postseason and played seven more seasons, including four at an All-Star level. Ilgauskas also went on to have a productive career.Then again, that only happened after his third foot surgery, a procedure that involved reshaping multiple bones in his foot. read more

Move over touchscreen Apple granted patent for invisible buttons and sliders

first_imgPart of the appeal of Apple devices is that they’re undeniably sleek, sporting smooth, curved corners and flush surfaces. When designing the iPhone and iPad, Apple intentionally minimized the amount of physical buttons the devices had, adding to the overall sleek style. However, what if Apple needed to add some more physical buttons to its iconic devices, but didn’t want to sacrifice the sleek design ideals?According to a patent granted to Apple, the company has found the solution: invisible buttons. What better way to provide more controls, but keep them hidden, securing the iconic sleek iDevice design?Now, Apple hasn’t tapped into its inner Harry Potter magic and can suddenly make things invisible at will, but rather, the buttons would be made of the same material as the device’s housing, and set flush to the surface. So, the button would appear to just be part of, for example, the iPad’s bezel.When using the button would be applicable, a small backlight could illuminate its location. It’s also possible for the invisible buttons to have a sensor that would keep them hidden until the user motioned toward them. The idea can also be applied to slider controls, if for some reason Apple would ever need its devices to have a physical slider away from the touchscreen.The patent doesn’t only apply to mobile devices, though. Apple could use the technology on virtually anything that has buttons or keys. Imagine context-sensitive buttons only appearing on a laptop keyboard when a certain action becomes available, only to disappear when that action is unavailable.The idea helps device manufacturers keep a sleek, minimalist design, but without having to sacrifice methods of input — certainly a boon for those that prefer button control over gesture control, but who also like pretty hardware.last_img read more

Exxon Valdez litigation ends but spills legacy may be indefinite

first_imgNearly three decades after the disastrous Exxon Valdez oil spill in 1989, the litigation for the remaining cash the state and federal governments could pursue from Exxon is at an end. A clause in the 1991 settlement said up to $100 million could be requested from Exxon for future unknown damage. It was called the re-opener.Download AudioExxon Valdez tanker aground. Off-loading of remaining oil in progress. Photo courtesy of the Exxon Valdez Oil Spill Trustee Council.In 2006, then-Governor Frank Murkowski and the George W. Bush administrations went to court and demanded $92 million of the re-opener from Exxon. The company refused to pay. And in October, the Walker and Obama administrations decided to drop the claim.Former Marine biology professor Rick Steiner has been involved in the fight for compensation from Exxon since the spill. He says there’s no other recourse now.STEINER: In the end it’s kind of a bitter pill at the end of this long string of bitter pills that we the people and the injured environment have suffered through for the last quarter of a century here.Seafood processors picketing and protest at Exxon’s headquarters. Their signs read, “Exxon, don’t be lame, honor the cannery claims.” Photo: Alaska Office of the Governor. Accessed via Alaska Digital Archives.TOWNSEND: Was the re-opener language written in a way that made it sort of impossible to look at it in broad enough terms to say, ‘Well, there might not be lingering effects to this particular species… but certainly to this particular species.STEINER: The government attorneys — that’s the state attorney general’s office and the U.S. Dept. of Justice — assert that the re-opener language in the original settlement was so narrow that it was difficult to activate the claim later on down the road. However, if that’s the case, then that was a fraud initially in the settlement in 1991.TOWNSEND: Have we, as a nation, at least learned some lessons that are being applied going forward when there are these kinds of disasters?STEINER: I would hope that some of the lessons of the Exxon-Valdez and how to manage a disaster like this were applied in the Deepwater Horizon (spill). I was down there working on Deepwater Horizon for several years and some of those lessons were applicable — certainly the re-opener, that the debacle of the Exxon re-opener in Alaska foretold how to do it better in the BP Deepwater Horizon case. And so they did not allow BP any control over these future expenditures. Some of these lessons were applied. What were not, however — for years we pushed for a comprehensive scientific overview, or an audit, of the restoration process. Over the entire Exxon-Valdez, how restoration funds were spent — scientifically, for research, for habitat… what the difference between Exxon results were from the government research results — which were dramatically different… and the agencies opposed that. Many of the injured habitats and populations have not fully recovered. Some are listed as ‘not recovering at all,’ here 26 years later. Those include herring, pigeon guillemots, marble murrelets and the AT1 killer whale pod, which is actually expected to go extinct due to losses from the oil spill.TOWNSEND: Does it feel strange to be at the end of this decades-long fight?Exxon Valdez oil is transferred to the Exxon San Francisco. Photo: U.S. Coast Guard, 17th District, Photograph Collection. Accessed via Alaska Digital Archives.STEINER: Yeah, it does. You know, there were thousands of us who were involved in this in 1989 — actually before 1989! We saw there to be a risk for this sort of thing. Even a couple of years prior to the Exxon Valdez we tried to set up an RCAC (regional citizens advisory council) in Prince William Sound, which I still to this day believe that if we’d been successful, we would’ve seen the holes in the system and might not have ever had the Exxon-Valdez. But, there’s still more work to be done — both on lingering oil and on these larger habitat deals Bering River, Kenai Fjords, the subsurface deals in Prince William Sound and more ongoing monitoring and research that needs to be done. That will go on indefinitely. And we hope the habitat deals will get done this year. So while it’s over in one sense, it will never be over in another sense — simply from the fact that there will never be full recovery from the Exxon-Valdez oil spill. The other thing we’ve learned from this is how delicate these pristine coastal ecosystems can be to (recover) from one day, one wrong decision by a tanker captain. Here we are, 26 years later, still dealing with the fall-out from that, and still possibly with residual oil on the beaches that could be there for centuries. I guess that take-home message is, if we’re going to do these large-scale, risky developments in precious coastal areas, we have to do it with exceptional care. We aren’t there yet. We didn’t do it with the Arctic drilling (in the Chukchi) last summer, you know. Hopefully those lessons will be applied somewhere in the future. So we’re at the end of part of it… but in an interesting way, it will never be fully over.Rick Steiner is a marine scientist and longtime critic of the Exxon Valdez settlement terms.last_img read more

High Court Rejects Vijay Mallyas Plea Again

first_imgKingfisher Airlines (KFA) plea against United Bank of India (UBI), which declared the company as “willful defaulters,” got rejected by Kolkata High Court.In May, Kolkata-based UBI sent a willful defaulter notice on KFA including its board members. The KFA chairman Vijay Mallya, along with board members, was called before the panel on 27 June, which was later re-scheduled to 9 July.The grounded airline submitted their plea before Justice Dipankar Dutta to withdraw the notice by UBI and to allow them a personal hearing along with legal representative on the issue, reports the Mint. But the plea got rejected and the company was asked for recovery proceedings.”Justice Dipankar Dutta has given a positive judgment and bank’s concerns have been rightly addressed,” UBI executive director Deepak Narang told the Economic Times. “The judgment will be a guiding principle for the entire banking industry in the time to come.”It was not the first time when KFA’s plea got dismissed by a High Court. The Karnataka HC turned down a petition filed by the airline in December last year of a consortium of its lenders to take possession of Kingfisher House property.Even in April 2013, Bombay HC dismissed petition filed by United Breweries Holdings to grant interim relief to Kingfisher Airlines’ lenders from selling pledged shares of UB group companies. This company markets beer under Kingfisher brand and is headquartered in Bangalore, Karnataka.The debt-ridden airline owes around ₹6,400 crore to a consortium of lenders led by State Bank of India, including payment of dues to UBI of nearly ₹350 crore.In December last year and January this year, SBI and a UK-based aviation service firm, Aerotron, filed petitions on KFA claiming due of ₹6,203 crore and ₹37 crore, reports the Financial Express.The eight-year-old airline had shut down its operations on 20 October 2012 as the Directorate General of Civil Aviation (DGCA) suspended its flight certificate.In February 2012, it received a notice from Airports Authority of India regarding dues of ₹2551 million. Since the last six months, it was operating on a cash-and-carry basis.last_img read more

Study suggests bigger brains in birds translates to less stress

first_img Citation: Study suggests bigger brains in birds translates to less stress (2013, September 12) retrieved 18 August 2019 from https://phys.org/news/2013-09-bigger-brains-birds-stress.html Explore further In humans, when something causes stress, hormones known as glucocorticoids flood our system. Their purpose is to trigger the famous fight-or-flight response. Other animals have the same hormones in their systems, and thus, researchers can test the level of stress in them by noting their hormone levels. In this new effort, the researchers wondered if birds with proportionally bigger brains, experienced less stress due to being smarter than their cousins with proportionally smaller brains. They found data in 189 previous studies with birds that also included hormone level data. Using this information, the researchers compiled a database that allowed them to compare birds by relative brain size. They found that on average, the larger the brain relative to body size, the less the amount of stress hormone produced during similar circumstances, e.g. stress inducing situations.The researchers looked for changes in hormone levels due to a wide variety of stress inducing situations, as well as during different parts of the birds’ life cycle, e.g. during migration, brooding, etc. The results came back the same: birds with bigger brains relative to their body size, such as owls and crows, had lower amounts of stress hormones in their blood during stressful events than birds with smaller brains relative to body size. They noted that it wasn’t just a matter of big birds versus small birds—it was the relationship between the size of their brains and the size of their bodies that mattered.The researchers suggest that differences between birds have come about as an adaption to dealing with stress hormones—if any animal, including humans, lives with heightened levels of stress hormones in their bodies over extended periods of time, they tend to suffer for it and die younger. (Phys.org) —A team of researchers with members from the U.S. Hungary, France and Spain has found that birds that have proportionally bigger brains tend to experience less stress than those with proportionally smaller brains. In their paper published in Proceedings of the Royal Society B, the team describes how they studied data obtained from prior research efforts that captured stress hormone levels for 119 different species and found those birds with the largest brains relative to their body size, had the lowest levels of stress hormones in their blood during stressful events.

An interspecific relationship between brain size and corticosterone levels, Published 11 September 2013 DOI: 10.1098/rspb.2013.1734AbstractVertebrates respond to unpredictable noxious environmental stimuli by increasing secretion of glucocorticoids (CORT). Although this hormonal stress response is adaptive, high levels of CORT may induce significant costs if stressful situations are frequent. Thus, alternative coping mechanisms that help buffer individuals against environmental stressors may be selected for when the costs of CORT levels are elevated. By allowing individuals to identify, anticipate and cope with the stressful circumstances, cognition may enable stress-specific behavioural coping. Although there is evidence that behavioural responses allow animals to cope with stressful situations, it is unclear whether or not cognition reduces investment in the neuroendocrine stress response. Here, we report that in birds, species with larger brains relative to their body size show lower baseline and peak CORT levels than species with smaller brains. This relationship is consistent across life-history stages, and cannot be accounted for by differences in life history and geographical latitude. Because a large brain is a major feature of birds that base their lifetime in learning new things, our results support the hypothesis that enhanced cognition represents a general alternative to the neuroendocrine stress response.

Flooding stirs Victorian tourism

first_imgCrowds of people are travelling to central Victoria to visit Lake Eppalock, the dry lake that is now flowing over the spillway. The Lake that has been running with less than fifteen percent of water since 2002, filled and spilled earlier this month by approximately 50,000ml of rain water, Bendigo Advertiser said. According to City of Greater Bendigo executive manager of tourism Kathryn McKenzie the restored lake has attracted an array of visitors and has filled caravan parks that have been empty since the drought. “It has lifted the spirits, lifted a lot of families who are coming back for leisure and boating activities,” she said. “This is certainly good for the lake and the surrounding areas. “Services such as garages, newsagents and food outlets all experience some of the benefits.” Heathcote Visitor Information Centre co-ordinator Fiona McClure said work in the areas for traders had increased and inquiries to the centre were on the rise.“Talking to traders… trade has been constant over the weekend,” she said.

CFPB Director Responds to Discrimination Complaints

first_img Consumer Financial Protection Bureau Discrimination House Financial Services Committee Richard Cordray 2014-07-31 Krista Franks Brock Responding to allegations of racial and gender discrimination at the Consumer Financial Protection Bureau (CFPB), the bureau’s director, Richard Cordray, appeared before the House Financial Services Committee Wednesday.Cordray said the bureau is working to improve the working environment and review processes for its employees.”Because of the speed with which we tried to build this new agency, we have found that we did not get everything right for our own employees,” Cordray told House members after describing his own sense of urgency to “get things done” amid “tremendous pressure.”About half of all employee grievances filed with CFPB have concerned employee performance reviews, according to Cordray, and the bureau is now overhauling its review process.”Whether the distinction was headquarters versus field, or one part of the bureau versus another, or bargaining unit versus non-bargaining unit employees, or other categories like age and race, we perceived that the review system was creating differential outcomes that indicated the system was unsatisfactory and not working out as intended,” Cordray said during Wednesday’s hearing.He also stated his intention to bring the bureau’s Office of Minority and Women Inclusion into his office, where he can monitor it closely. The office has begun “bureau-wide listening sessions” in which employees discuss their personal experiences at work.While Cordray would not discuss any individual discrimination complaints, he said, “We take each of these allegations very seriously and we will continue to work diligently to resolve any issues through all appropriate channels.”CFPB’s senior enforcement attorney, Angela Martin, told the same House committee earlier this year she is “a victim of discrimination by the bureau” and she has suffered “severe retaliation” since filing a complaint. She further ventured that her experience is “a microcosm of the larger story of what happens to individuals within the bureau when they step forward with complaints of wrongdoing.” July 31, 2014 558 Views in Daily Dose, Featured, Government, Headlines, Newscenter_img CFPB Director Responds to Discrimination Complaints Sharelast_img read more

Survey AgentClient Relationship Key for FirstTime Buyers

first_img in Data, Headlines, Market Studies, News Century 21 Customer Satisfaction First-Time Homebuyers J.D. Power 2014-08-06 Seth Welborn Survey: Agent/Client Relationship Key for First-Time Buyers August 6, 2014 456 Views center_img Share Century 21 gained the highest customer satisfaction rating among real estate brokerages in all four buyer/seller categories, according to the J.D. Power 2014 Home Buyer/Seller Satisfaction Study released Wednesday.The study used four factors to quantify customer satisfaction in both buying and selling: the agent/salesperson, real estate office, closing process, and additional services. For selling, a fifth factor (marketing) was considered. The four categories measured were: first-time buyers, repeat buyers, first-time sellers, and repeat sellers.The customer-agent relationship is most critical in measuring customer satisfaction among buyers, according to the study. With sellers, it is the marketing of the home.”Satisfying first-time buyers is critical for real estate firms to differentiate themselves. It’s up to the agent to build confidence in buyers by educating them and demonstrating a commitment to working in the best interest of the customer,” said Christina Cooley, director in the diversified services industries practice at J.D. Power. “The more seamless the experience, the less overwhelmed customers are likely to be. When agents take the lead, customers are also more likely to appreciate their real estate firm and agent for their expertise and customer focus.”The biggest factor that both buyers and sellers considered when choosing a real estate firm was the firm’s reputation (30 percent for buyers; 35 percent for sellers). Twenty-four percent of buyers chose a firm based on recommendation as opposed to 21 percent of sellers; and 21 percent of buyers picked a firm because of past experience with the agent or salesperson as opposed to 25 percent of sellers.Out of 1,000 possible points, Century 21 posted the following scores in the four segments:First-time home-buyer satisfaction. Century 21’s total of 848 was just enough to beat out Prudential at 846. Century 21 scored high in the agent/salesperson, real estate office, and additional service categories, while Prudential scored high in the closing process.Repeat home-buyer satisfaction. Century 21 scored 852, while Prudential placed second at 847. Century 21’s strong suits were real estate office and closing process, while Prudential scored high in additional services.First-time home-seller satisfaction. Century 21’s score of 833 just beat out RE/MAX, which was second at 831. Century 21 ranked high in the categories of real estate office, closing process, marketing, and additional services; RE/MAX scored highest in real estate office and agent/salesperson.Repeat home-seller satisfaction. Century 21 again topped the list with 836, and Keller Williams (829) ranked second. Century 21’s highest ranking categories were additional services, agent/salesperson, closing process, and marketing; Keller Williams scored high in the real estate office category.Other key findings of the study include: The average listing price of a house was $200,000 in 2014, which remained unchanged from 2013; each home on the market hosted an average of three open houses and took almost eight showings to sell on average; and repeat customers had a higher satisfaction rating than first-time buyers or sellers. Repeat buyers scored, 840 while repeat sellers totaled 821; first-time buyers and sellers totaled 835 and 820, respectively.The J.D. Power 2014 Home Buyer/Seller Satisfaction Study is in its seventh year. This year’s study was fielded between March and May of 2014 and was based on evaluations from customers who either bought or sold a home between March 2013 and April 2014.last_img read more

Uncovering mosaics a painstaking process

first_imgInconvenient location hampers work on important ancient mosaicsBy Annette ChrysostomouThe antiquities department has plans for two big ancient mosaics for this year, one in Larnaca and the other one in Akaki, outside Nicosia. It takes time, work, and many careful deliberations however before such big excavations can be preserved properly and displayed to the public.Both of them are well worth the effort.The rare mosaics in Larnaca were discovered in 2016 and date from the second century AD and include a Roman public bath with a floor depicting the 12 feats of Hercules.The ornate mosaic in Akaki, probably part of a villa belonging to a wealthy individual, dates from the fourth century AD and depicts scenes from a chariot race.Excavations of the four-metre wide, 26-metre long area began in 2013 and the full mosaic was seen briefly for the first time in 2016.According to the BBC, only nine similar mosaics, showing a hippodrome race, have been found at ancient Roman sites.“The hippodrome was very important in ancient Roman times, it was the place where the emperor appeared to his people and projected his power,” said archaeologist Fryni Hadjichristofi.The excavation of the Larnaca mosaics are hopefully going to finally be completed this year, said archaeologist Anna Satraki who is in charge of the project.The antiquities were unearthed while the Larnaca sewerage board was carrying out road works in the area, but it soon became clear that they could not be excavated further as a building was in the way.An uninhabited and abandoned house on the plot of land needs to be demolished before uncovering the antiquities can be completed.The land registry will decide soon to give the go-ahead for expropriating the plot of land under which much of the site is situated, Satraki believes.The mosaics of the labours of Hercules were discovered in Larnaca in 2016Only when the mosaic is completely revealed can the department of antiquities decide what to do with it, whether to leave it in situ or move it.“We will decide where it will be better preserved,” Satraki explained, “in the open air or for example in the Larnaca museum.”There are related plans to excavate the harbour of ancient Kiti, for which tennis courts in the area have started to be removed. The aim is for this to become an archaeological site including the museum, the harbour and the mosaics.It would not be the first time a big mosaic has been moved. Greece is one example where it has been successfully managed when the mosaic of the Epiphany of Dionysus was moved to the local Archaeological Museum of Dion for restoration and protection between 2015 and 2017.The position and shape of individual mosaic stones were first recorded. The mosaic was then divided into several plates which could be transported and reassembled at its destination.The large stone mosaic illustrating the Greek god in a chariot pulled by panthers, dates back to the late-2nd and early 3rd century AD. It was unearthed in 1987 by archaeologists in Dion, Greece, a village near Mount Olympus.Larnaca mayor Andreas Vyras just wants the matter resolved and is more concerned with the residents than the details of the excavation.He said it doesn’t matter if the land registry or the antiquities departments are to blame for the long delay, what matters is that it is causing serious problems for the people living in the area.Since 2016, when the mosaics were covered with sand, a large part of a road in the city centre has been closed.“What is happening is unacceptable because for 14 months the expropriation of the abandoned house should have proceeded, which has not been done,” the mayor said.“Even the simplest everyday things, such as the transport of garbage, shopping, furniture, even to cut grass from their gardens are difficult, given that much of the road has been closed and they are forced to their park their vehicles far away.”Excavations in Akaki, the other big important mosaic, were finished last year, but that does not mean the work is over.“The conservationists will continue their work later in the spring or early in the summer,” Hadjichristofi said. “It has not yet been decided exactly when.”For now, these mosaics, like the ones in Larnaca, are covered to protect them from rain and housed under a shelter.Officials gaze down at the Larnaca mosaics after they were discovered in July 2016When winter is over, the stones will be uncovered little by little while the whole mosaic will be kept under the shelter, the archaeologist said. This way, the conservationists will clean and stabilise the stones bit by bit while the rest remain protected. Some of the stones are very well preserved, others are fragile, hence it is not clear how long the work will take.Only when the work is finished will the site be opened to the public. This may be this year, or it is possible that the whole area will have to be covered again over the next winter for further conservation to take place next year.Even when this part of the job is done, the area around needs to be carefully examined to establish what kind of building the mosaics were part of.“We have many other jobs to do, but we try to spend the maximum time on this one as it is very important,” said Hadjichristofi.You May LikePopularEverythingColorado Mom Adopted Two Children, Months Later She Learned Who They Really ArePopularEverythingUndoPlarium I Vikings: Free Online GamePlay this for 1 minute and see why everyone is addictedPlarium I Vikings: Free Online GameUndoSenior Living | Search AdsCheap Senior Apartments in Rowland Heights Are Turning HeadsSenior Living | Search AdsUndo Three arrested in connection with hotel theftsUndoCruise passenger airlifted to Paphos hospitalUndoPensioner dies after crash on Paphos-Polis roadUndoby Taboolaby Taboolalast_img read more
