‘Young’ Alastair Cook to remain England Test skipper, says Andrew Strauss

first_imgDirector of England cricket, Andrew Strauss, expects Alastair Cook to carry on as the Test captain well into the summer of 2017, saying the 31-year-old is comfortable with the responsibility.Cook triggered speculation about his captaincy when he told the Cricketer magazine that he did not know “how much longer I am going to carry on. It could be two months, it could be a year”.Talking to reporters in Visakhapatnam ahead of the second Test against India, Cook’s former opening partner Strauss ruled out a change in Test captaincy.”He’s batting well and he’s still young. It is quite scary how young he is really and I have every faith that he will carry on past this series and into the summer,” Strauss said. (Alastair Cook plays down talk about quitting England captaincy)”He is in a really good place… very comfortable leading this team for a while. So, it probably takes less out of him now than it used to.”Cook, who surpassed Michael Atherton’s England record of 54 matches as Test captain after the first Test against India in Rajkot, replaced Strauss as skipper in 2012.Strauss said Cook has many years left to continue doing well with the bat and mentor youngsters. (Proved everyone that we can play after Bangladesh fiasco, says Alastair Cook)One of them could be 19-year-old Haseeb Hameed who struck an impressive 82 during England’s second innings at Rajkot to forge a 180-run opening stand with Cook.”Hameed looked very composed and calm and in control of his game. He’s got a very effective game against spin, we’ve got some very high hopes for him,” Strauss said.advertisementlast_img read more

Telugu the language of Indian soft power: Kovind

first_imgHyderabad, Dec 19 (PTI) Telugu is a global language, it is the language of enterprise and technology, of Indian soft power and a vibrant Telugu-speaking diaspora, President Ram Nath Kovind said today.He was addressing the valedictory function of the World Telugu Conference here.”Telugu is a global language. It can be heard, read and cherished across continents. It is the language of enterprise and technology, of Indian soft power and of a vibrant Telugu-speaking diaspora that has made a name for itself and for our country.”From South Africa to Southeast Asia, the Telugu community is acknowledged as achievers,” the president said.In the United States, Telugus have been elected to public office, and are well-known as entrepreneurs, doctors and technologists, he said.”It is a matter of pride that the CEO of the technology giant Microsoft -Satya Nadella- is a Telugu. He follows a fine heritage. Among others is Yellapragada Subbarao, the celebrated biochemist who worked at Harvard University in the 1920s and 1930s,” he said.The commitment of the Telugu diaspora to its mother tongue and the culture of its ancestral land is strong, Kovind said, adding “I am heartened to learn of programmes such as Mana Badi, which make children of Telugu families conversant with the language of their parents and grandparents”.Kovind, who visited Hyderabad for the first time after assuming office, also said, “Telugu is the second-most spoken language in our country. It is the mother tongue of the people of two states, Telangana and Andhra Pradesh. Since 2008, it has been recognised as a classical language for its long literary tradition ? a tradition of which even (Telangana) Chief Minister K Chandrashekhar Rao is an important part.advertisement”The greatest emperor of the Vijayanagara Empire, Krishna Deva Raya, was both a remarkable ruler as well as an exponent and patron of Telugu literature,” he noted.Kovind also mentioned that three of his “distinguished predecessors” (former presidents) were Telugu speakers ?- S Radhakrishnan, V V Giri and Neelam Sanjeeva Reddy.”And P V Narasimha Rao, a scholar and prime minister, knowledgeable in many languages, but truly an authority in Telugu, too was from this region,” Kovind said.The president also noted that Telugu has been called a “bridge language between the south and the north”.Hyderabad too is a bridge between many cultures and regions, which is a pan-Indian city as well as a global metropolis, he said, praising its technology industry, pharmaceutical companies, vaccine innovators, thriving educational institutions and health-care centres, cinema and special effect production houses and sports facilities.”And Hyderabad is simply majestic as the city of biryani, badminton and Bahubali ? giving the country delicious food, a string of badminton champions and films that are an expression of Indian soft power,” the president said. On Telangana and Andhra Pradesh jointly topping the Ease of Doing Business state rankings for 2016, the president said for a new state such as Telangana, this was a creditable achievement.Chief minister K Chandrashekhar Rao said the Telugu conference will be held every year in December.Vice President M Venkaiah Naidu had inaugurated the five-day event on December 15.

Car Crash Kills Cards’ Taveras

first_imgSANTO DOMINGO, Dominican Republic — Oscar Taveras, the St. Louis Cardinals’ outfielder regarded as one of the majors’ top prospects, died Oct. 26 in a car accident in his native Dominican Republic. He was 22.Taveras was driving a 2014 Chevrolet Camaro at the time of the crash on a highway between the beaches of Sosua and Cabarete in Puerto Plata, about 215 miles north of the capital of Santo Domingo, said Col. Diego Pesqueira of the Metropolitan Transportation Agency.“He wasn’t carrying documents at the time of the accident, but his body was identified by family members,” Pesqueira said.National police spokesman Jacobo Mateo Moquete said he was told by the mayor of Sosua that Taveras lost control of his vehicle and went off the road. Edilia Arvelo, 18, who was in the car with Taveras, also died in the accident, Pesqueira said.Taveras made his major league debut this year. He hit .239 with three homers and 22 RBIs in 80 games for the NL Central champions.“I simply can’t believe it,” Cardinals General Manager John Mozeliak said in a release. “I first met Oscar when he was 16 years old and will forever remember him as a wonderful young man who was a gifted athlete with an infectious love for life who lived every day to the fullest.”Cardinals Chairman Bill DeWitt Jr. said the organization was “stunned and deeply saddened.”“Oscar was an amazing talent with a bright future who was taken from us well before his time,” DeWitt said. “Our thoughts and prayers are with his family and friends tonight.”Taveras was a teenager when he signed with St. Louis as an international free agent in 2008. Before this season, Taveras was ranked as the No. 3 overall prospect by MLB.com and Baseball America, and had a.321 average over six minor league seasons.He homered against the Giants’ Yusmeiro Petit in his major league debut May 31. He also had a big solo drive in the seventh inning of Game 2 in the NL Championship Series against San Francisco.“All of us throughout Major League Baseball are in mourning this evening,” baseball Commissioner Bud Selig said in a statement. “Oscar, a young member of the baseball family, was full of promise and at the dawn of a wonderful career in our game, evident in his game-tying home run against the Giants exactly two weeks ago.”It looked as if Taveras was headed to the majors in 2013, but he had surgery for a high right ankle sprain last August for an injury that did not respond to treatment. He then got off to a nice start at Triple-A Memphis this season, earning a promotion by batting .325 with seven homers in 49 games.“Oscar had a very promising future, on and off the field, and this news is heartbreaking on many levels,” Tony Clark, the leader of the players’ association, said in a statement. “It’s never easy to lose a member of our fraternity, and to lose one so young is devastating news.”Giants outfielder Juan Perez heard about Taveras’ death during Game 5 of the World Series. He hit a two-run double in the eighth inning of San Francisco’s 5-0 victory and dedicated the hit to his fallen countryman.“He’s a really close friend of mine,” Perez said. “I know his family pretty good, I know his mom, his dad, his brothers, we were really close. It’s a huge loss for all his family, his teammates and the people that care about him.”Several of Taveras’ Cardinals teammates took to Twitter to express their condolences.“Last 30 minutes I’ve been sick to my stomach. Keep thinking about Oscar’s big smile in the dugout whenever we made a big play/got a big hit,” All-Star reliever Pat Neshek posted.Rookie second baseman Kolten Wong tweeted: “RIP you will be missed buddy.”___By Dionisio Soldevila.

French President Emmanuel Macron delivers on World Cup 2018 promise

first_imgFrance President Emmanuel Macron has lived up to his promise and is attending the FIFA World Cup 2018 semi-final between France and Belgium in St Petersburg.The 40-year-old had promised that he would travel to Russia and watch the match if France reach the semi-finals.”If the French team passes beyond the quarter-finals I will come and support,” Macron had said during a joint news conference with Russian President Vladimir Putin.World Cup 2018 Semi-final: France vs Belgium LiveSeveral high-profile world leaders are in attendance at the Saint Petersburg stadium including Belgium King Philippe of Belgium, Queen Mathilde of Belgium and Belgium Foreign Minister Didier Reynders. Several high-profile world leaders are in attendance at the Saint Petersburg stadium including Belgium King Philippe (second from left) and Queen Mathilde (extreme left)Hosting the World Cup has allowed Russian President Vladimir Putin to step up his diplomacy, securing a series of meetings with international guests on the sidelines of the tournament at a time when Russia is increasingly isolated on the global stage.Human rights groups have previously called for Western leaders to boycott the World Cup in Russia due to Moscow’s actions in Syria.Two of the best teams of the ongoing tournament, France and Belgium, are up against each other in the first semi-final at St. Petersburg.Both France and Belgium are attacking units, both have absolutely deadly skills in front of the goal and both the countries have some famed names in the midfield.While the French squad is one of the youngest in the tournament with an average age of 26 years, this is Belgium’s golden generation and they are expected to deliver.advertisementFrance fell short at the final hurdle in Euro 2016 when they were heavily favoured against Portugal, Belgium were shocked by Wales in the quarter-final of the tournament.Belgium have scored 14 goals in five matches and were hugely impressive in their 2-1 quarter-final victory over Brazil, with Romelu Lukaku, Eden Hazard and Kevin de Bruyne combining to devastating effect to oust the five-times world champions.In contrast, France sleep-walked through the group stages, eking out wins over Australia and Peru before a stultifying 0-0 draw with Denmark.Their early struggles had ‘Les Bleus’ being written off in some quarters, but all that changed when they faced Argentina in the last 16 in what must be a leading contender for the most exciting match of the tournament.(With Reuters inputs)last_img read more

Sedentary lifestyle doubles mortality risk

first_imgSedentary lifestyle for 20 years is associated with a two times risk of premature death as compared to those who lead a healthy life, according to a new study. “Our findings imply that to get the maximum health benefits of physical activity in terms of protection against premature all-cause and cardiovascular death, you need to continue being physically active,” said researchers. This study aimed to assess how changes in physical activity over 22 years were related to subsequent death from all causes and cardiovascular disease. Also Read – An income drop can harm brainThe HUNT study invited all residents of Norway aged 20 and older to participate in 1984-1986, 1995-1997 and 2006-2008. At all three time points, individuals were asked about their frequency and duration of leisure-time physical activity. The current study used the data from the first and third surveys. A total of 23,146 men and women were included in the analysis. Physical activity was categorised as inactive, moderate – less than two hours a week and high – two or more hours per week. Also Read – Shallu Jindal honoured with Mahatma AwardPhysical activity data were linked to information on deaths until the end of 2013 using the Norwegian Cause of Death Registry. The risk of death in each physical activity group was compared to the reference group – those who reported a high level of exercise during both surveys. Compared to the reference group, people who were inactive in both 1984-1986 and 2006-2008 had a 2-fold higher likelihood of all-cause death and 2.7-fold greater risk of dying from cardiovascular disease.last_img read more

Chine éviter la panique après une victime de la grippe aviaire

first_imgChine : éviter la panique après une victime de la grippe aviaireUn an et demi après le dernier cas recensé, un chauffeur d’autobus de Shenzen, la grande ville du sud de la Chine proche de Hong Kong, est décédé samedi du virus mortel de la grippe aviaire. Les autorités chinoises ont appelé la population à ne pas paniquer.Cet homme de 39 ans, M. Chen, a été pris de fièvre le 21 décembre avant d’être transporté 4 jours plus tard à l’hôpital. Une pneumonie grave lui a d’abord été diagnostiquée mais il a ensuite été testé positif au virus H5N1 de la grippe aviaire, constituant ainsi le tout rpemeir cas depuis près de 18 moins, a indiqué le département de la Santé de Shenzen. “Jusqu’à présent, les 120 personnes qui ont été en contact avec cet homme récemment ne présentent aucun signe de maladie”.À lire aussiLa Chine confirme qu’une autre femme pourrait donner naissance à un bébé génétiquement modifiéLa victime n’avait a priori eu aucun contact avec des volatiles et “aucune information concernant des oiseaux malades” n‘a été révélée, a précisé le bureau de l’Agriculture et de la Pêche.Il n’y a donc “aucune raison pour l’instant d’abattre des volailles”, a t-il ajouté. Rien ne prédisait ce décès un an et demi après le début de l’épidémie. Pourtant, Hong Kong, ville voisine de Shenzen, a élevé son niveau d’alerte à la grippe aviaire dès mardi et a stoppé toutes les importations de volaille vivante après la mort mi-décembre de trois volatiles porteurs du virus H5N1. Hong Kong a en effet été le premier pays à connaître une épidémie de grippe aviaire d’importance en 1997 qui avait fait 6 victimes après la mutation du virus. A l’heure actuelle, les autorités craignent que le virus mortel dans 60% des cas ne connaisse un pic d’infection début 2012. Par ailleurs, la contamination par le virus H5N1 s’est toujours faite de l’animal vers l’homme, mais les scientifiques redoutent qu’une mutation du même genre ne permette la contamination d’homme à homme, ce qui pourrait provoquer une pandémie meurtrière. Malgré tout, les autorités de Shenzhen ont tenu à rassurer la population : “le virus ne peut pas se propager entre personnes, et il ne faut pas que les citoyens de Shenzhen paniquent”, a déclaré le Centre de contrôle des maladies de Shenzhen cité par l’AFP.

Japan emperor Akihito being treated for brain condition

first_imgThis file photo taken on 25 April 2018 shows Japan`s Emperor Akihito smiling during the spring garden party hosted by the emperor in Tokyo. Japan`s 84-year-old Emperor Akihito cancelled his official duties on 2 July 2018 after being taken ill, the country`s top government spokesman said. Photo: AFPJapan’s 84-year-old emperor Akihito cancelled his official duties on Monday after being taken ill as a result of insufficient blood flow to his brain, the country’s top government spokesman said.Akihito shocked the country in 2016 when he signalled his desire to step down after nearly three decades in the job, citing his age and health problems.Early on Monday the emperor “had a sudden feeling of sickness and heavy sweating” and Empress Michiko “immediately brought in the palace doctor,” Yoshihide Suga told reporters.The doctor diagnosed the emperor with “symptoms of vertigo and nausea due to cerebral anemia, which require a complete rest and follow-up checks”, said Suga, the chief cabinet secretary, speaking at a regular press conference.Cerebral anaemia is a condition resulting from insufficient blood flow to the brain.Akihito had been due to meet Monday with princess Ayako, a daughter of one of his cousins, to hear about her engagement, a spokesman for the Imperial Household Agency told AFP.”We don’t have further details” about the emperor’s health condition, he added.The emperor also postponed his planned meeting with the Qatari ambassador who is scheduled to leave Japan soon, local media reported.It was not clear when Akihito would resume his public duties.He will be the first emperor to retire — on April 30, 2019 — in more than two centuries in the world’s oldest imperial family.Akihito’s eldest son, 58-year-old Crown Prince Naruhito, is set to ascend the Chrysanthemum Throne a day later.The status of the emperor is sensitive in Japan — a legacy of the massive Pacific war waged in the name of Akihito’s father Hirohito, who died in 1989.Akihito has keenly embraced the more modern role as a symbol of the state which was imposed on the royal family after World War II ended. Previous emperors including Hirohito had been treated as semi-divine.last_img

Relative Pregnant Woman 3 Children InLaws Slain In Texas

first_imgInstagram User @StatesmanCarrie Matula hugs Rebecca Metcalf after Metcalf’s father was killed in a mass shooting at the First Baptist Church in Sutherland Springs, Texas, on Sunday, Nov. 5, 2017.A mother’s pride had lit up Crystal Holcombe’s Facebook page. Daughters Emily and Megan had finished third and first in their respective categories in a 4-H bakeoff and displayed their handiwork in posted photos.But on Sunday afternoon, the page went grim.“Keep the Holcombe family in your prayers,” a friend posted.Crystal Holcombe, who was eight months pregnant, was among the 26 people killed by a lone gunman wielding an assault rifle, most inside the First Baptist Church of Sutherland Springs, Texas, said her cousin, Nick Uhlig.Uhlig told The Associated Press that Holcombe’s in-laws were killed, and he told the Houston Chronicle that three of Holcombe’s children also died.“She doesn’t even drink, smoke or nothing,” he told the newspaper. “She just takes care of kids; she raises goats and makes homemade cheese. That kind of thing, you know? They don’t go out dancing or anything like that. They’re real old-fashioned, down-to-earth.”The father-in-law, Bryan Holcombe, had done prison ministry, Uhlig said. “He would go up to the prison with a ukulele to sing.”The massacred churchgoers ranged in age from 5 to 72, state police said. About 20 others were wounded.One local man, 68-year-old Earl Good, told the San Antonio Express-News that a good friend had lost eight relatives in the shooting.It’s not clear whether the Holcombes were that family.Another victim was 14-year-old Annabelle Pomeroy, daughter of the church’s pastor, Frank Pomeroy. Both he and his wife were out of town, in different states, on Sunday.“Heaven truly gained a real beautiful angel this morning along with many more,” the girl’s uncle, Scott Pomeroy, lamented on his Facebook page, posting a picture of the smiling girl poolside in a bathing suit. All those robbed of life in Sunday’s bloodbath, he wrote, “have taken their last breath of dirty air and took their first breath of heavenly air with new bodies with no pain and suffering.”Another of those killed was the 13-year-old goddaughter of Amanda Mosel, she told the Express-News.Hank Summers, a local who had moved to San Antonio, told the AP via text message that his uncle, David Colbath, survived five gunshots that required extensive surgery and skin grafts to save an arm.Sutherland Springs is a tiny town where everyone knows each other, said L.G. Moore, who runs the Holiday RV Park, which is ¼ mile from the church.Everyone in town was apt to know someone who was killed, he ventured.“They say the population is 400 and that’s if you count every dog, cat and armadillo. It’s more like 200 people,” the 75-year-old Moore said by phone.___Bajak reported from Houston. Sharelast_img read more

Can Newtons 2nd Law be Violated on Earth

first_img Ignatiev has devised a way of detecting one such special case, dealing with small accelerations on earth. This type of experiment is something widely considered so difficult that it has been dismissed in the past as impossible. “We already have observation of this theory in astrophysical evidence,” Ignatiev, a scientist at Melbourne’s Theoretical Physics Research Institute in Australia, points out. “I want to look at how it works on earth.” Ignatiev’s Suggestion on how this could be accomplished has been published in Physical Review Letters as “Is Violation of Newton’s Second Law Possible?”And the implications if Newton’s 2nd Law is violated under special conditions on earth? “Well,” says Ignatiev, “this is dealing with fundamental physics. If Newton’s Law can be seen to be violated on Earth, then everything we know has to be re-evaluated.”But this is where the difficulties with Ignatiev’s Suggestion begin. “The conditions for testing this are really special,” he explains. “Time and place have to be accounted for.” According to Ignatiev, the possible places to conduct this experiment lie 80 degrees north and south of the equator. “These are latitudes in places like Antarctica and Greenland — not exactly hospitable areas.” But timing is important as well. “It must be very finely tuned,” Ignatiev insists. “Only two instances during the year, around the two equinox dates, for about 1/1000th of a second.”If these experiments were to take place, Ignatiev says that scientists would look for what he calls the SHLEM effect. This acronym stands for static high latitude equinox modified inertia and would be noticed in a condition where the forces of the earth’s rotation on its axis, and of the orbital force of the earth as it moves around the sun, would be canceled out. “This would lead to a tiny shift to be detected,” Ignatiev explains.But how feasible is this? Aside from the calculations that he says he already has for figuring the dates, times and locations for the SHLEM effect to manifest, Ignatiev says that the experiment could be done — it’s not impossible as previously thought. “Gravitational wave detectors are great starting points,” he says. Ignatiev explains that searching for tiny shifts in gravity could help understand tiny displacements, or accelerations. “Even though we are looking at different forces,” Ignatiev says, “the methods of detecting for gravity can be borrowed for this research. After all, gravity is a weak force with all sorts of tiny shifts, and the acceleration shifts are likewise weak and tiny.” And, he adds, there are plenty of these gravitational wave detectors in use and more being built. “There are many of them available, and they could further this research.”Despite the special conditions needed to test for violations of Newton’s 2nd Law on Earth, Ignatiev feels that it would be worthwhile. “This would be difficult, but not impossible. The SHLEM effect is the key. And if we can find a violation, it would be huge for fundamental physics.”Ignatiev’s paper is available free online at arxiv.org/abs/gr-qc/0612159 .Update: Paper ref.

When Employees Feel Grateful Theyre Less Likely to Be Dishonest

first_imgDishonesty in the workplace can be a major problem for any business. Recent estimates suggest that theft and fraud by employees reduce the profits of U.S. businesses by $50 billion annually. And to make matters worse, the problem is growing. The Association of Certified Fraud Examiners noted that non-cash thefts in workplaces increased over 10% from 2002 to 2018. — My colleagues and I, however, believe that there might be a different way to address the problem — one that works from the “bottom-up.” What I mean by this is a strategy that doesn’t rely on people remembering to try to control selfish impulses, but rather one that automatically strengthens’ people’s ability to resist temptation. Since our past work had revealed that feelings of gratitude work in just this way — that they effortlessly enhance patience and self-control — we wanted to see if gratitude would also reduce dishonest behavior. The toll, however, isn’t just a financial one. Working in an environment with unethical peers not only can cause stress, but also can lead honest employees to either leave the company or begin to adopt unethical norms for themselves, thereby exacerbating the effects on a corporation’s culture. To examine this question, we conducted two experiments, the results of which will be published in the journal Psychological Science. In one of these experiments, we asked 141 people to participate in an online study using Amazon MTurk that purportedly examined different types of memories. To induce appropriate emotional states, we randomly assigned each person to write about a time they felt grateful, a time they felt happy and amused, or about the events of their typical day (i.e., a neutral memory).

Tourism Chamber Please support businesses outside Poás safety perimeter

first_imgFor one great recommendation in the Poás area, check out The Tico Times Travel section’s La Paz Waterfall Gardens review. Facebook Comments The National Tourism Chamber (CANATUR) is calling on the population not to forget about the Poás Volcano region altogether, but rather to visit the many destinations in areas outside the security perimeter.The volcano’s ongoing activity, the temporary closure of the national park, and the resulting establishment of a security perimeter around the volcano have hurt nearby tourism businesses, the chamber noted.The National Emergency Commission (CNE) said in a news release that their preventive actions in recent past days “do not represent restrictions on tourist and productive activities in surrounding areas.”The restricted perimeter is now 2 kilometers (1.2 miles) around the volcano. National Police officers already relocated checkpoints to improve access to businesses and tourism attractions outside that area.Caution, not fearCANATUR President Isabel Vargas said that current weather conditions are favorable and that hotels, restaurants and other businesses in nearby areas are working as usual.“We know that some people are afraid to visit some of these areas, and this poses a risk to the economic stability of many families and businesses,” she said.Vargas said the chamber is in close contact with local tourism chambers to keep business owners organized in order to face the situation. She asked the population to follow all CNE’s recommendations and orders and refrain from entering the restricted areas. However, she also asked them to visit communities such as Fraijanes, Poasito, Vara Blanca and others outside the security perimeter.Edgardo Araya Sibaja, a lawmaker from the province of Alajuela, asked the Costa Rica Tourism Board and the Poás Municipality to promote all other tourist destinations in the area.In a Facebook post, Araya pointed out that “the area that had to be closed is small, compared to the large number of attractions available at this tourist destination and that are open and waiting for local and foreign tourists,” he said.

Spanish man questioned over university attack plot

first_imgAssociated PressMADRID (AP) – A Spanish man arrested on suspicion of planning to imitate the 1999 Columbine killings at a university campus on the popular holiday island of Mallorca was ordered Friday to remain in custody while a judge decides what legal action to take.The suspect, identified by officials only as a 21-year-old whose initials are J.M.M.S., was shown on state television TVE as he was escorted to court by police. Sponsored Stories Mary Coyle ice cream to reopen in central Phoenix Former Arizona Rep. Don Shooter shows health improvement Judge Enrique Morell handed down a decision of provisional prison without bail for the suspect, who was arrested Wednesday. The judge said he had decided to keep the man in custody to avoid any risk he might tamper with evidence.A court spokeswoman said the suspect entered the courthouse smiling before answering questions posed by Morell. The official spoke on condition of anonymity because she wasn’t authorized to speak to the media.Spanish police said the man had tried to purchase guns for the attack, but opted to make bombs from 140 kilograms (310 pounds) of chemicals bought online.In a statement, police said they had been watching the man for the past five months after messages referring to Columbine began appearing on Internet pages in Spain. A Venezuelan journalist working in Japan alerted police to the suspicious content of some of the suspect’s online postings.The statement said the man had openly expressed his hatred for society, and particularly students. A police spokesman said there was nothing to indicate that the man had planned to carry out the attack for any set ideological reasons.Twelve students and one teacher were killed in the Columbine attack in Colorado. The two perpetrators then killed themselves. The Spanish man’s diary indicated he had considered committing suicide once he had carried out the attack.

HARP Volume Surpasses FHFA Expectations in 2012

first_img Agents & Brokers Attorneys & Title Companies Fannie Mae FHFA Freddie Mac Investors Lenders & Servicers Refinance Service Providers 2013-03-13 Tory Barringer refinance,HARP Volume Surpasses FHFA Expectations in 2012 Share March 13, 2013 418 Views center_img in Data, Origination Refinance volume under the Home Affordable Refinance Program (HARP) pulled back slightly in Q4 2012, but data from the “”Federal Housing Finance Agency””:http://www.fhfa.gov/ (FHFA) indicates interest in the program remains high.[IMAGE]FHFA’s “”December 2012 Refinance Report””:http://www.fhfa.gov/webfiles/25033/Dec12RefiReport.pdf shows HARP volume was 76,461 in the year’s final month. For the quarter, HARP volume was 297,461, representing 22 percent of total refinance volume reported by Fannie Mae and Freddie Mac.According to FHFA, nearly 1.1 million HARP refinances were completed in 2012, bringing total volume to 2.2 million since the program’s implementation in April 2009.The top five states for HARP refinances (since 2009) are California (which has reported 301,327 refinances under the program), Florida (175,686), Illinois (147,252), Michigan (144,709), and Arizona (106,387). In terms of HARP share, Nevada takes the No. 1 spot, with 46 percent of refinances since April 2009 falling under the program (compared to the national average of 15 percent). In December alone, HARP refinances represented 68 percent of total refinances in the state, triple the national average of 21 percent.FHFA also reported most HARP refinances since the program’s inception have been on primary residences (1,895,827 loans). Second homes comprised 69,522 HARP refinances, and 199,672 were for investment properties.In December, 18 percent of HARP refinances for underwater borrowers were for 15- and 20-year mortgages, which build equity faster than the traditional 30-year mortgage. The findings fit with Freddie Mac’s “”refinance data””:https://themreport.com/articles/freddie-mac-27-of-q4-refinancers-shortened-loan-terms-2013-02-12, which showed that 27 percent of borrowers who refinanced in Q4 opted for a shorter loan term.last_img read more

Skyscanner is the worlds travel search engine he

first_imgSkyscanner is the world’s travel search engine, helping your money go further on flights, hotels and car hire.ReturnOne wayMulti-cityFromAdd nearby airports ToAdd nearby airportsDepart14/08/2019Return21/08/2019Cabin Class & Travellers1 adult, EconomyDirect flights onlySearch flights Map Revolutionary tourism (aka Revolutionism)Related to War tourism, Revolutionary tourism is the practice of visiting countries and sites that have undergone major political revolutions. Whilst places that have played key roles in revolutions have always been points of interest for travellers, tourism officials in Egypt and Tunisia believe that the sites which were integral to the recent revolutions will become significant tourist attractions, according to the French publication L’internaute.Savecation (aka Austerication)The practice of trying to save as much money as possible on holiday, by selecting cheaper accommodation, food, or even destination. The term is somewhat vague as most people naturally select the best value holidays anyway.Set jettingTourism that revolves around traveling to movies sets and film locations. Destinations to have benefited substantially from set jetters include New Zealand following the Lord of the Rings trilogy (see Hobbiton, pictured below) and various locations in the UK following the Harry Potter films. HaycationA working holiday, typically spent on a farm often working with livestock or crops. Many farms take on volunteers, and lowly-paid workers such as backpackers in Australia often find work picking strawberries or other fruit during the summer. See also: voluntourism.HistoricationTravel to any location with the goal of learning about the history or visiting historic sites. The Egyptian pyramids are a classic example of a historication destination, although almost every country has some sites of interest to the historicationer. HolisticationA holiday involving yoga, meditation, or other such ‘well being’ experiences. Holistic retreats have become especially popular following the book and film ‘Eat, Pray, Love’ in which the lead character travels to retreats in Bali and India (also see: Set Jetters).LaycationTongue in cheek term used to describe a trip where holidaymakers hope to find opportunities to have sexual relations. The choice of destination is a strong factor in the success of a laycation; Magaluf and Santorini are known hot spots for those seeking ‘sexy time’, whilst the barren island of Svalbard within the arctic circle is likely to disappoint laycationers.Last chance tourismThe practice of visiting sites which are threatened with disappearance or extinction. For example polar landscapes which are disappearing due to climate change, or the Siberian Tiger which is critically endangered. See also: ecotourism.List TickerThose who travel with the sole purpose of doing things purely to boast about having done them on their return home, regardless of whether they enjoyed the experience or not. List tickers typically claim to have “done” a destination after spending just a few hours in one part of the country. For example, a list ticker will boast to friends back home that they have “totally done Thailand” after spending one night in a backpackers’ bar on Bangkok’s Khao San road. DaycationA one day holiday or day trip. For those short on time, money or the inclination to take a longer vacation. Daycationers may catch the red eye flight ensuring they have time to visit the main tourist attractions but avoid having to pay for accommodation. Cities with airports close to the city centre make particularly good daycation destinations, for example Tallinn (airport just 3 miles from city centre), Lisbon (airport 4 miles away) and London (City airport 6 miles away).Death tourism (aka Dark tourism)The practice of travelling to visit the graves, homes or other places that played a significant part in the life of a since deceased celebrity. For example, thousands flock to Jim Morrison’s grave, Elvis’ Graceland Mansion and Aberdeen in Washington State, Nirvana front man Kurt Cobain’s home town. Read more: Destination: Death TouristDisneyficationIn a travel context, Disneyfication is used to describe the transformation of an attraction or location into something with the homogenous qualities of a Walt Disney theme park. The term normally has a negative connotation and implies that the original character of a destination has been replaced by a dumbed down, sometimes corporate entity, which relies heavily on consumption and merchandising, at the expensive of individuality and independence. Examples include Carcassonne Castle in France and Jamaica’s beach resorts.DownbraggingThe practice of bragging about the savings one is making so that an individual appears not to be spending irresponsibly during a time when others are suffering economic hardship. However, downbragging is often just a guise, with downbraggers claiming they are “just going to stay home this year” when they are in fact staying in a boutique country house hotel with daily spa treatments a Michelin-starred restaurant, and personal chauffeur. See also Austerication.Drug tourism (aka Tripteering, Highliday)Travelling to a destination specifically to take a drug which may be illegal, unavailable or simply less socially acceptable in the consumers’ home country. The most prominent example of drug tourism is in Amsterdam where thousands of tourists go each year in order to consume cannabis. Americans under the age of 21 may also travel to neighbouring Canada or Mexico where legal drinking ages are lower. Other, more exotic drugs traditionally used by some indigenous populations also attract drug tourists, for example the hallucinogenic San Pedro cactus in Peru. GaycationHoliday undertaken by a member of members of the gay community especially to a place known for being gay friendly, such as Ibiza or Sitges, or to attend a large gay event, for example Pride. Popular Gaycation destinations include Brighton, Berlin and San Francisco.Generation vacationVacation where three generations of a family holiday together. The practice has seen a resurgence in popularity since the economic downturn due to the potential of saving money by holidaying with parents and grandparents. The younger generations tend to be the biggest benefactors of Greycations, as it’s normally ma, pa or the granps who pay. The generation vacation has also been referred to as a Greycation (see below).GreycationAt its most basic, a greycation is a holiday for old people; however the term tends to be used for the increasing trend for retried people to spend prolonged periods on holiday, often with others of similar age. Ethical tourismRelated to ecotourism, this is the practice to travelling in the most low impact, undamaging way towards the local environment, people and culture as possible. The ethics of travelling to a certain location are also brought into play; for example travel certain destinations where there is some debate over whether tourists should visit at all. See also: ecotourism.ExperimentouristAn experimental traveller who is open-minded when it comes to choosing a holiday destination. Decisions on where to go are most likely to be based on price; Skyscanner found that 15 percent of visitors to its site will try the “search everywhere” tool to find the best prices around the globe. See more on Types of Flight booker FakeationThe unusual practice of staying at home but pretending to others that you are on holiday. Fakecation pastimes may include turning background music on loudly to pretend you are at a discothèque, or letting the tap run while on the phone to a friend giving the illusion that you are at waterpark. Some fakeationers have been known to go as far as applying a full coat of fake tan and taking photos of themselves in the local sandpit, hoping to be able to fool their friends into believing that the park in their suburb of Birmingham is actually an exotic Caribbean beach resort. See also: downbragging.FlyrtingThe trend of flirting whilst flying as identified in a Skyscanner poll in February 2011. Skyscanner subsequently set up a Flyrting Twitter account for those who had met on planes to get in touch, similar to the “I saw you…” columns that feature in some papers and magazines.Gap yearAn extended period of holiday or travel, approximately 12 months (but sometimes less or often more. Originally the term was used to describe time taken out during the year in between finishing school and starting university, or immediately after university. However, usage has since been used to include any extended break abroad at any period in a person’s life, and there is an increasing trend for gap years later in life. The thirst for gap years has led some companies to offer condensed gap ‘year’ experiences – some as short as two weeks. MaycationHoliday taken in May, normally during one of the two May bank holidays. The Maycation marks the trend for short breaks which can be extended by a bank holiday. In 2011, due to the Royal Wedding of Kate and Will, an extra day of national holiday has been granted to the British residents. Due to the timing of Easter holidays, and counting weekends too, British nationals can get 11 consecutive days of holiday for the price of just three vacation days.Medication or Medical tourismDue to significant differences in prices between medical services in difference countries (both for essential operations as well as cosmetic procedures) an industry has grown up around people going abroad for medical care. This can range from dental work, to breast enhancements, to organ transplants in countries where kidneys can be purchased very cheaply from high street supermarkets.Off the beaten track holidayA trip taken away from the normal tourist hordes – either to a remote or inaccessible destination, for example the Kamchatka peninsula in Russia (pictured below) or to somewhere just not normally considered a tourist destination by the mainstream; for example Beirut or Albania. EcotourismA branch of the tourist industry that markets itself on ‘green travel’ or holidays with low environmental impact. However, the actual negative impact of some ecotourism holidays is hotly debated as those visiting fragile locations almost certainly contribute to the destruction of these environments, though are likely to contribute economically. Ecotourists also tend to enjoy relatively luxurious accommodation compared to the local population, which can emphasise the divide between tourist and native.Though the theory of ecotourism is sound, to travel with zero impact is almost impossible in practice. However, choosing certain types of transport, or a hotel that has better ‘green credentials’ over another, can certainly lessen the negative impact caused by tourism. See also: ethical tourism.EgotouristTerm coined following the birth of ecotourism (see above) which describes those who like the idea of seeing wildlife and meeting local people, but will only stay in nine star hotels with servants and a chauffeur, thus removing them from any meaningful cultural contact with the local population. BakeationA foodie holiday, dedicated to the pursuit of unearthing the most mouth-watering morsels of bakery. Not just restricted to sponge, all forms of baked goods and patisserie are included, from bread to croissants to the most elaborate of cakes. For example, the Black Forest region in Germany attracts many visitors for its gateaux and Budapest is known for its ‘Dobos Torte’ the most famous cake in Hungary.Bankruptcy tourism (aka Skintourism)Following the taming of the ‘Celtic Tiger’, some super skint Irish nationals began moving to Britain for a short period in order to claim bankruptcy due to more lenient bankruptcy laws in the UK. The term was identified by The Guardian in February 2011.Comedication (aka Hysterication)Travelling in search of laugher or an amusing experience. Comedicationists can often be found at large comedy festivals in Melbourne, Montreal or Edinburgh (pictured below) in April, July and August respectively. StaycationA holiday taken within one’s own country (or even one’s own home) rather than travelling abroad. Coined during the economic downturn during which there was an increase in domestic tourism.StereotripTravelling to a destination with the specific intention of experiencing something typical (or stereotypical) to that country or region. For example drinking vodka in Ukraine whilst dancing the Cossack, or eating deep-fried Mars Bars whilst wearing a kilt and playing the bagpipes in Scotland. See also: List tickers.VestinationA destination where you will see (usually sunburnt) men in vests. The early pioneer of vestinations were British seaside resorts such as Blackpool and Bognor Regis, where men wearing string vests and knotted hankies could be found getting rained upon. However, locations for vestinations have since changed with young men wearing high street branded vests for the modern man, bringing classic vest fashion bang up to date. Current vestinations include (but are not limited to): Benidorm, Malaga and Santorini. Volcation / Volcano voyeurismA trip made specifically to observe volcanic activity. Although this type of holiday has long been around, the erupting of the Icelandic volcano in 2010 which paralysed European airspace, lead to resurgence of interest for lava lovers. PaycationA holiday or extended period abroad where the traveller works to fund their stay or even save money for future travels. Favourite paycations include: teaching English abroad, crewing a yacht or working in a ski resort. Read more: Go Abroad. Get Paid. 10 PaycationsPraycationTravel for religious purposes, for example the annual event of pilgrims travelling to Mecca in Saudi Arabia. Read more: five top praycation destinations.Prison breakA holiday involving a visit to, or even a stay in a converted prison. Warning: strictly for those whose idea of being ‘behind bars’ on holiday means more than just sitting behind one which serves beer. Read more: Top Prison Breaks VoluntourismThe growing trend for a holiday that involves volunteering of some sort. VSO (Volunteer Service Overseas) has spawned hundreds of similar volunteering projects around the world that aim to improve the lives of local populations in developing countries. Projects can include anything from physical labour (for example building a school or installing a well) to highly skilled rolls such as practicing medicine or mapping coral reef.Though the majority of voluntourist projects are likely to benefit the local population or wildlife, some programmes have been criticised for providing a source of free labour and therefore preventing locals from gaining paid employment. Or taking two years longer than it would had they just got a digger in.WavecationTravelling to a destination known for its excellent watersports offerings such as surfing, windsurfing or sailing. Australia is a popular location for wavecationers, as is the Pacific coast of the USA and the Hawaiian islands.

Examples include swapping the Balearics for Bournemouth, or New York for Newport.
