first_imgWashington DC: US sanctions came into effect Sunday to block Venezuela’s economic lifeline of oil exports, in what Washington hopes will be a major blow in its fledgling campaign to topple leftist President Nicolas Maduro. As of 12:01 am Washington time (0401 GMT), the United States will take action against anyone who deals with state-owned Petroleos de Venezuela, or PDVSA, or any entity in which the company holds at least a 50 percent stake. It is among a volley of steps by President Donald Trump’s administration to oust Maduro and install opposition leader Juan Guaido, who is recognized by more than 50 countries, including most in Latin America. Just Friday, the Trump administration said it would block any US assets of Foreign Minister Jorge Arreaza, confirming it has no desire to negotiate with Maduro, a socialist firebrand who presides over a crumbling economy but has withstood three months of intense pressure. Until the crisis, Venezuela exported 500,00 barrels a day to the United States, its largest customer, with PDVSA omnipresent, if not highly visible, through ownership of the Citgo refining and gas station chain. The United States has already moved to put Citgo under the control of Guaido, who appointed his own board.last_img read more

10 November 2009The United Nations has sent a disaster assessment team to El Salvador and released a $50,000 cash grant to help the small Central American country recover from torrential rainfall that caused massive flooding and triggered landslides, killing at least 140 people and displacing nearly 14,000 others. Announcing the grant today, the UN Office for the Coordination of Humanitarian Affairs (OCHA) cited the Government’s appeal for international aid to ensure that essential supplies such as food, water, hygiene kits, beds and blankets are provided to those whose homes have been destroyed or damaged.Members of the UN Disaster Assessment and Coordination (UNDAC) team and the OCHA Regional Office in Panama have started arriving in the country to provide support in damage assessments and coordination of the relief effort. On Sunday, El Salvador was lashed by torrential rains, with some 355 millimetres (just over one foot) falling in just four hours, putting a quarter of the country at risk for landslides. Besides the death toll, some 60 people have been reported missing. Over 120 shelters have been established and are currently accommodating some 13,775 people. About 1,835 homes are affected, with 200 of them destroyed. The office of the UN Children’s Fund (UNICEF) in El Salvador has begun providing bottled water, school-in-a-box kits and personal hygiene kits for the affected families, and is requesting support from donor countries to continue helping children as part of the relief effort. read more

20 April 2011The United Nations is today celebrating Chinese Language Day as part of the Organization’s continuing efforts to highlight the historical and cultural significance of each of its six official languages. The United Nations is today celebrating Chinese Language Day as part of the Organization’s continuing efforts to highlight the historical and cultural significance of each of its six official languages.A series of activities, including workshops for writing Chinese calligraphy, a martial arts demonstration, performances of traditional music and folk dancing and a formal reception, will take place at UN Headquarters in New York to mark the Day.Today’s date was chosen by the UN to pay tribute to Cang Jie, a mythical figure who is presumed to have invented Chinese characters about 5,000 years ago.One of the oldest languages in the world, Chinese has archaeological records pointing back at least 4,000 years and is now spoken by more than a billion people. The language has several thousand dialects, but Mandarin is spoken by the majority of the people of China and understood by an estimated 95 per cent.Last year the UN Department of Public Information (DPI) introduced Days to mark the six official languages – English, French, Arabic, Chinese, Russian and Spanish – as part of wider efforts to promote multilingualism and cultural diversity at the world body. read more

From 1 to 4 April, a working group consisting of representatives from UN Member States, intergovernmental organizations, the scientific community and civil society are discussing ways to protect marine resources from a number of pressures that cumulatively put oceans at risk.“If we are to fully benefit from the oceans, we must reverse the degradation of the marine environment due to pollution, overexploitation and acidification,” said Secretary-General Ban Ki-moon, who has in the past repeatedly urged all nations to work towards that end, including by joining and implementing the UN Convention on the Law of the Sea.The Convention governs all aspects of ocean space, including the delimitation of maritime boundaries, exploitation of living and non-living resources, protection and preservation of the marine environment, marine scientific research and the settlement of relevant international disputes. If an instrument were to be developed, it would fall under this Convention.At the 2012 UN Conference on Sustainable Development (Rio+20), States committed to urgently address the conservation and sustainable use of marine biodiversity beyond areas of national jurisdiction. Healthy, productive and resilient oceans, rich in marine biodiversity, have a significant role to play in sustainable development as they contribute to the health, food security and livelihoods of millions of people around the world.“The Working Group is now at a critical juncture of its work. The next three meetings present a clear opportunity to try and overcome remaining differences and to crystalize the areas of convergence into concrete action,” said UN Legal Counsel Miguel de Serpa Soares in his opening remarks at the meeting. The Working Group will present its recommendations on the scope, parameters and feasibility of the instrument to the General Assembly to enable it to make a decision before the end of its 69th session, in September 2015.The meetings will be co-chaired by the Permanent Representative of Sri Lanka to the UN, Palitha T. B. Kohona, and the Legal Adviser of the Ministry of Foreign Affairs of the Netherlands, Liesbeth Lijnzaad. read more

Trump warns of violence if Democrats win

first_imgDonald TrumpPresident Donald Trump urged evangelical leaders this week to get out the vote ahead of the upcoming midterm elections and warned of “violence” by opponents if they fail.Trump made the dire warning at a White House dinner Monday evening attended by dozens of conservative Christian pastors, ministers and supporters of his administration.Trump was stressing the stakes in November when he warned that, if Democrats win, they “will overturn everything that we’ve done and they’ll do it quickly and violently,” according to attendees and audio of his closed-door remarks obtained by media outlets, including The New York Times. He specifically mentioned self-described antifa, or anti-fascist groups, describing them as “violent people.”Asked Wednesday what he meant, Trump told reporters, “I just hope there won’t be violence.””If you look at what happens … there’s a lot of unnecessary violence all over the world, but also in this country. And I don’t want to see it,” Trump said.At the dinner, Trump talked up his administration’s efforts to bolster conservative Christian causes and urged those gathered to get their “people” to vote, warning the efforts could quickly be undone.”I just ask you to go out and make sure your entire people vote,” Trump said, according to the Times. “Because if they don’t – it’s Nov. 6 – if they don’t vote we’re going to have a miserable two years and we’re going to have, frankly, a very hard period of time because then it just gets to be one election – you’re one election away from losing everything you’ve got.”Ohio Pastor Darrell Scott, an early Trump supporter who attended the dinner, said he interpreted the comments differently than the media has portrayed them.”It wasn’t any kind of dire warning,” Scott said, “… except the things that we’ve been working on as a body of voters will be reversed and overturned.””What he was saying,” Scott continued, is that “there are some violent people … but it wasn’t that we’ve got to worry about murder on the streets and chaos and anarchy … just that the things we’ve worked for will be overturned.”Tony Perkins, the president of the Family Research Council and another attendee, said he, too, interpreted Trump’s message as a warning not to be complacent.While Trump did make a reference to antifa, Perkins told CNN, “I don’t think anybody in the room suggested that there was going to be violence across the nation.””I did not interpret him to say that the outcome of the election is going to lead (to) violence in the streets, and violence in the churches,” he told CNN.last_img read more

Florida mulls drone war on the mosquito

Apart from any fair dealing for the purpose of private study or research, no part may be reproduced without the written permission. The content is provided for information purposes only. Mosquito control professionals in Florida are turning to drones as part of their demanding work to find ways to control mosquito populations. The Keys has over 40 mosquito species; mosquitoes can transmit dengue fever, encephalitis, malaria, and dog heartworm. As the story goes, the first attempt in the Keys toward mosquito control was in 1929, with the setting up of a bat tower. The idea was that the bats would eat the mosquitoes. The bats flew away, but local town wits said the mosquitoes ate the bats. District Director Michael Doyle has invited several government agencies to a test flight on August 26. The drones, which resemble hawks in flight, are from Condor Aerial, of North Carolina; the company will send a rep to operate the test flight. According to the Condor Aerial website, the battery-powered drones are capable of up to 90 minutes of flight at one time. The battery-powered UAV in mind is the Maveric drone, outfitted with a shortwave infrared camera. The drone can fly 90 minutes at a time, is 2.2-pounds and 2.5-feet long. Condor Aerial, with a motto of “Providing Tomorrow’s Technology to Law Enforcement,” has been focused on providing aerial surveillance for law enforcement agencies but Doyle’s interest is to see what the short wave infrared camera can accomplish. According to KeysNet.com, Doyle said that deploying the camera may result in their being able to detect the shallow water areas which the department needs to identify. “If we can find the water, we can kill the mosquitoes. The real challenge is finding the water quickly enough,” Doyle said. Finding the water quickly means the district could move quickly to treat the areas with larvicide. Gene-altered mosquitoes could be used vs. dengue Explore further More information: www.condoraerial.com/FAQ.htmlwww.keysnet.com/2013/08/10/488 … eyes-drones-for.html © 2013 Phys.org (Phys.org) —Drones are often associated with war and running down criminals, but this week drones for another purpose have made news. Florida is about to test how drones will do in tracking down mosquitoes. The Florida Keys Mosquito Control District, in its ongoing mission to make the job of killing mosquitos more efficient, is exploring unmanned aerial vehicles equipped with infrared cameras as one option for mosquito control. The goal is not to use drones to fight the insects but to use the UAVs to spot shallow-water pools where mosquitoes breed, up and down the Keys. Once the pools are found, ground action would begin, with attacks on these pests at the larval stage with larvicides.last_img read more

Mass estimated for two binary pulsars

first_img © 2019 Science X Network Mass constraints for PSR J1949+3106. Image credit: Zhu et al., 2019. Citation: Mass estimated for two binary pulsars (2019, July 18) retrieved 18 August 2019 from https://phys.org/news/2019-07-mass-binary-pulsars.html By performing timing observations, an international group of astronomers has measured the mass of two binary millisecond pulsars designated PSR J1949+3106 and PSR J1950+2414. The results could be essential in order to unveil the evolutionary status of these two objects. The research is detailed in a paper published July 11 on arXiv.org. Explore further Gamma-ray pulsations detected from the pulsar J0952−0607 Pulsars are highly magnetized rotating neutron stars that emit beams of electromagnetic radiation. The most rapidly rotating pulsars, with rotation periods below 30 milliseconds, are known as millisecond pulsars (MSPs).Astronomers believe that MSPs are formed in binary systems when the initially more massive component turns into a neutron star that is then spun up due to accretion of matter from the secondary star. To date, more than a half of known MSPs have been found to have stellar companions.Nearly 200 pulsars have been discovered by PALFA, a large-scale survey for radio pulsars at 1.4 GHz using the Arecibo 305-meter telescope and the ALFA multibeam receivers. Recently, a team of astronomers led by Weiwei Zhu of the Max Planck Institute for Radio Astronomy in Bonn, Germany, decided to take a closer look at two MSPs from this survey, namely PSR J1949+3106 and PSR J1950+2414, detected in 2012 and 2013 respectively. The main aim of the study was to measure the proper motions of these two systems more precisely and to measure masses of these objects and their companions.”In this paper, we present the results of timing observations of PSRs J1949+3106 and J1950+2414, two binary millisecond pulsars discovered in data from the Arecibo ALFA pulsar survey (PALFA),” the astronomers wrote in the paper.Initial observations of the two pulsars made by Zhu’s team confirmed that with adequate timing data, it could be possible to perform accurate mass measurements. By analyzing the dataset from Arecibo Observatory and from the North American Nanohertz Observatory for Gravitational Waves (NANOGrav), the astronomers were able to conduct precise calculations of proper motions of both pulsars, what resulted in uncovering the masses of the two systems.According to the paper, the pulsar PSR J1949+3106 was found to have a mass of about 1.34 solar masses, while its companion has an estimated mass of approximately 0.81 solar masses. The observations revealed that PSR J1950+2414 is more massive than PSR J1949+3106, which has a mass at a level of around 1.5 solar masses. However, its companion turned out to have a relatively low mass—only about 0.28 solar masses.The derived masses, together with calculations of proper motions, allowed the team to draw initial conclusions regarding the evolutionary history of both objects.”PSR J1949+3106 is likely the product of a low-kick supernova; PSR J1950+2414 is a member of a new class of eccentric millisecond pulsar binaries with an unknown formation mechanism,” the researchers concluded.

How to ride the Batmobile wearing a sari

Joshipura took her models to Gotham City – in the land of Batman. The runway was decked up using semi-circular light rings. Monochromes formed the base of the collection marked by the occasional oranges, pinks and limes. Models showed off T-shirts, shorts, trousers, jumpsuits, playsuits, jacket dresses, evening jackets and even a Batmobile dress. Peplums and Arkham patterns, Coolio jackets and digital floral work stood out.

first_imgSituated in the valley surrounded by beautiful hills and lush green areas, the culturally rich North-East regions are widely known for their plays. In order to showcase the magnificence of theatre, the National School of Drama is going to perform plays based on the North-East part of India through the theatre festival ‘Poorvottar Rashtriya Rang Utsav’.A total of five plays consisting of two Manipuri plays, two Assamese plays and one play from Sikkim will be staged first, in New Delhi at the Abhimanch auditorium from August 24-28 before being staged in Amritsar from August 26–30. The party will then move to Jaipur from August 28 to September 1, with the last stage of the tour commencing in Vadodara from August 30 to September 3. Some of the plays that are scheduled to be performed are as Bacchae, directed by Thawai Thiyam of the Manipuri group Chorus Repertory Theatre,  Aeserengaa Rood, directed by  Pranjal Saikia of the Assamese group Sanskritic Mancha and Hami Nai Aafai Aaf, heralded by Bipin Kumar of the Sikkim Centre group.Waman Kendre, Director, National School of Drama, said, “In Indian contemporary theatre, the North-East leads the roost in theatre production. It has made an impact not only on Indian audience but also worldwide. Such theatre practices need to be showcased all over the country in order to enrich theatre enthusiasts, artists, practitioners and the whole community at large.”last_img read more

first_img Register Now » 11 min read The late sci-fi author Arthur C. Clarke famously said that any sufficiently advanced technology is indistinguishable from magic.We certainly live in a magical world. We’re surrounded by technology, yet we seldom stop to consider the amazing advances that we’ve come to rely on every day. Whether we’re surfing the Web, making a call on our mobile phones, or watching a DVD movie on our big-screen TV, we take our modern conveniences for granted.Here, then, is a peek inside the magician’s hat at ten technologies that are keys to our digital age. Without realizing it, you’ve probably used at least one of them already today–if not all. But whether you’re aware of them or not, without these technologies our world would be a very different place.UnicodeWe use computers for every kind of communication, from IM to e-mail to writing the Great American Novel. The trouble is, computers don’t speak our language. They’re all digital; before they can store or process text, every letter, symbol, and punctuation mark must first be translated into numbers.So which numbers do we use? Early PCs relied on a code called ASCII, which took care of most of the characters used in Western European languages. But that’s not enough in the age of the World Wide Web. What about Cyrillic, Hindi, or Thai?Enter Unicode, the Rosetta Stone of computing. The Unicode standard defines a unique number for every letter, symbol, or glyph in more than 30 written languages, and it’s still growing. At nearly 1500 pages and counting, it’s incredibly complex, but it’s been gaining traction ever since Microsoft adopted it as the internal encoding for the Windows NT family of operating systems.Most of us will never need to know which characters map to which Unicode numbers, but modern computing could scarcely do without Unicode. In fact, it’s what’s letting you read this article in your Web browser, right now.Digital Signal ProcessingDigital signal processing helps make modern cell phones possible.Digital music, digital photos, digital videos: It’s easy to forget that we live in a fundamentally analog world. Computers can cope with all that we see and hear only through the application of highly complex mathematics, a field known as digital signal processing (DSP).Wherever you find digital media, DSP is at work, facilitated by a whole subcategory of specialized chips and circuits. DSP algorithms correct for errors while your optical drive reads the music off a CD. They’re at work again as you compress the audio into an MP3 file, and again when you play it back through your surround-sound speakers.DSP is to digital media as gears and springs are to a pocket watch. It works its magic below the surface: invisible, yet totally essential. It’s safe to say that without it, virtually none of the digital technologies that we take for granted today–from DVDs to mobile phones, ink jet printers to DSL broadband–would be possible.Managed CodeMicrosoft’s .NET is a managed code environment.Programming is a lot more complicated than it used to be. Modern operating systems are like onions, with layers upon layers of subsystems to interconnect and manage. Worse, bugs and unnoticed security flaws, even ones that may have once seemed trivial, can be serious threats in the Net-connected era.For a growing number of developers, the solution is to use platforms designed to relieve some of the burden. Programs written for such managed-code environments as Java and Microsoft’s .NET don’t run on the bare hardware the way traditional programs do. Instead, a virtual machine acts as an intermediary between the software and the system. It’s like a robot nanny for computer programs, silently taking care of memory management and other housekeeping drudgery while keeping an eye out for potential security violations before they happen.To an end user, a managed-code program may seem no different than a traditional one, but software that runs in a virtual machine makes for a more reliable, stable, and secure computing experience. And with .NET rapidly becoming the preferred platform for Windows development, managed code may soon be the norm, rather than the exception.TransistorsLater this year, Intel plans to unveil the world’s first integrated circuit to contain 2 billion transistors. Moore’s Law says that the number of transistors we can put into integrated circuits will double approximately every two years. That’s a lot of transistors–but what do they all do?Simply put, the transistor may well be the greatest invention of the 20th century. It’s really nothing more than a voltage-controlled switch, but that humble description hides incredible power. Linked together in various ways, transistors can form circuits that are the basis of every type of digital logic, right up to the CPUs that power our modern PCs and servers.What makes today’s chips so powerful is the industry’s ability to cram components ever closer together. The transistors on the processor inside your PC might be only about 100 atoms across, and improvements in manufacturing technology will keep them shrinking–at least, for the time being.Someday, optical chips or even quantum processors may replace current chip designs and outperform them many times over. For now, we’ll have to content ourselves with continuing to improve upon an oft-ignored technology that has served us for 50 years and counting.XMLYou’ve probably heard of XML, but what is it? Where is it?Though you may never have encountered it directly, XML is everywhere. Now in its tenth year, it has become virtually the lingua franca of data exchange.XML stands for “extensible markup language” — extensible because developers can add to it to suit the needs of particular applications. But what makes it really valuable is the fact that it’s a language, much like HTML. Unlike some data formats, XML files aren’t just streams of incomprehensible numbers. XML is designed to be read by humans as well as machines. A developer who “speaks XML” can look at a document written in an unfamiliar XML dialect and still understand what it’s trying to say.This powerful combination of features makes XML incredibly useful for all kinds of applications. But perhaps its biggest coup was Microsoft’s decision to switch to XML-based file formats for Office 2007. As it turns out, you actually may have XML documents sitting on your desktop right now, without realizing it.Nonvolatile RAMIsn’t it strange? Your pockets stay the same size, yet you can carry more and more in them every year.In 1956, IBM’s first hard drives used disks that were 2 feet wide. It’s hard to believe that today’s microscale drives use essentially the same technology. Incremental advances, such as the discovery of giant magnetoresistance and the invention of perpendicular recording heads, have produced staggering results. Between 1990 and 2005, magnetic hard drives increased their storage capacity a thousandfold, putting even Moore’s Law to shame.But even with those astounding improvements, hard drives hit a wall when it came to portable devices. They were still too big and too fragile for many gadgets. Enter solid-state drives based on non-volatile RAM. The technology has been used for storage since the 1970s, but it remained phenomenally expensive until manufacturing processes caught up with the demand. Now it is everywhere: in MP3 players like the newest Creative Zen, and in digital cameras, cell phones, and even some laptops.Manufacturers aren’t sitting still; cutting-edge technologies such as “racetrack memory” could lead to solid-state storage that is smaller, faster, and more reliable than ever.Lithium Ion BatteriesWhen we were kids, our toys came “batteries not included.” With our grown-up, high-tech toys, on the other hand, the battery is often one of the most important features. As essential as mobility has become to how we use technology, it simply wouldn’t be possible if our choices were still limited to D, C, and AA.The invention of lithium ion batteries was the key. The earliest rechargeables were made with lead–hardly a prescription for portability. But because lithium is the lightest metal, lithium-based batteries can store more energy at a given weight than any other variety. Lighter batteries mean smaller, lighter devices; beginning in the 1990s, you could actually put a phone in your pocket.Running time remains an ongoing challenge, but researchers have no shortage of solutions. In addition to improved lithium ion batteries that use nanotechnology, a number of battery alternatives are slowly coming to market, including ultracapacitors and fuel cells. In fact, pardon me for saying that battery technology is poised for its next big explosion–and personal technology is sure to advance because of it.Voice over IP (VoIP)VoIP made possible the inexpensive long-distance calls that use prepaid calling cards.You’ve made a few Skype calls and you’ve looked into digital phone service from your broadband provider, but that’s as close as you’ve gotten to VoIP (voice over IP) technology. Or so you think. In truth, VoIP is revolutionizing the telecom industry, blurring the lines between voice calls and digital networks.Those prepaid calling cards that offer rock-bottom international rates? VoIP makes them possible. Similarly, a growing number of businesses use VoIP behind the scenes to eliminate long-distance charges between branch offices.Routing calls over the Internet circumvents traditional telephone company charges, and fewer fees and taxes mean lower prices. Digital calls are easier to direct and manage, which makes them attractive even to traditional telephone companies. Don’t be surprised if soon the landline you’ve lived with forever is replaced by an all-digital alternative–though you’ll likely be none the wiser.Graphics AccelerationThought your fancy video card was only good for gaming? Think again. Its graphics processing unit (GPU) is really like a second, highly specialized CPU. When it comes to certain kinds of complex math, its performance puts your desktop CPU to shame.Until recently, all that power went to waste when you weren’t chalking up frags. But computer scientists are finding novel ways to use GPU acceleration to speed up applications off-screen, as well. For example, a Stanford University project– which uses many PCs around the world acting together as a supercomputer to assist protein folding-related disease research–can offload calculations to the GPU to multiply its performance many times.Because the kind of calculations used to draw 3D graphics are also applicable to many other problems, GPU acceleration is potentially useful for a wide variety of applications, from math-intensive science and engineering to complex database queries. Newer, even more complex chips–such as nVidia’s Aegia physics engine–can do even more. No wonder nVidia has begun working on chips for the workstation market.Increasingly, your PC’s performance won’t depend on the speed of any single chip. As AMD and Intel get into the game, expect future desktop CPUs to incorporate CPU and GPU capabilities into a single, multicore package, bringing the best of both worlds to gamers and nongamers alike.High-Speed Net AccessWiMax provides a greater range of broadband access than does the more common Wi-Fi.Where would we be without fast Internet access? It’s easy to forget that just 10 years ago, most of us were still using ordinary modems. The broadband revolution ushered in streaming video, MP3 downloads, Internet phone calls, and multiplayer online gaming. And we owe it all to TV.In the 1980s, cable companies were promising 500 channels of round-the-clock programming. Cable was poised to become the most important wire into the house; but the telephone companies had an ace up their sleeve. A new technology could push high-frequency signals over ordinary phone lines, which previously had been good only for low-bandwidth voice calls. The telephone companies saw this as an opportunity to offer video on demand and to compete with the cable companies at their own game.Or so they thought. The plans of the telcos for video on demand dried up by the mid-1990s, but the technology remained. Now called DSL, it had morphed into a high-speed household on-ramp to the Internet. The cable companies followed suit with a comparable technology, and the broadband speed race–for both DSL and cable–began in earnest.Both cable and DSL still use traditional frequency signaling over copper wires, but new breakthroughs are poised to go mainstream. Fiber to the premises (FTTP) promises lightning-fast network speeds, and WiMax will push broadband into territories that wires can’t reach today. As for what applications this next broadband revolution will bring–well, we have only begun to imagine.

Studying Housing Affordability with Wedding Costs

first_imgRedin.com revealed in a new study that Detroit, Michigan, Pittsburgh, Pennsylvania, and Cleveland, Ohio, were the most affordable places for couples to get married, and cover their down payment on their first home.The average combined cost of a wedding and a down payment payment in Detroit, Cleveland, and Pittsburgh is less than $65,000, which is substantially lower than the national average of $109,000.Redfin calculated down payment amounts in 25 metros, assuming a 20% down payment on a median-priced home as of April 2019, and paired it with data on wedding costs from Wedding Wire. The average cost of a wedding, including an engagement ring, ceremony, reception, and honeymoon in 2018 was $38,700.The most expensive metro to host a wedding and buy a house was San Francisco, California, with costs adding up to $325,000. Los Angeles, California, ($168,000) and New York, New York ($158,000), were close behind. San Francisco’s median home price, according to Redfin, was $1.42 million, which would require a 20% down payment of $285,000.A study from Trulia last month found that the west coast was home to five of the seven priciest metros—San Francisco; San Jose, California; Los Angeles; San Diego, California; and Portland, Oregon. Florida metros Miami and Tampa Bay were also included.With a median home value of $590,700 and a median income of $75,110, only 8% of the ZIP codes in San Diego had 100% of homes that could be considered affordable. New York was a close second, with just 9.3% of ZIP codes had homes all could deem affordable.Redfin reports that down payments in coastal metros such as Seattle, Washington, Boston, Massachusetts, and San Diego were more than $100,000, with San Diego having an average home price of $639,000.Of the 25 metros studied, Detroit had the least expensive median home price of $139,900, which would require a 20% down payment of $27,980. The average price of a wedding in Cleveland was $22,000, with the combined price of a wedding and down payment just $55,980.

Central bank says Coop worst case scenario theoretical amid bank run

first_imgAn increase in withdrawals at the Co-op compelled the Central Bank of Cyprus to say that Thursday’s comments made by one of its officials on the disastrous consequences for depositors of a failure to implement the Hellenic – Co-op deal were intended to highlight the worst-case scenario rather than present the probable scenario.“The comments about the remote, theoretical probability of the liquidation of the Cyprus Cooperative Bank were made to stress the most extreme negative consequences if the transfer of the Cyprus Cooperative Bank to Hellenic Bank is not completed, a solution which under the circumstances constitutes the only alternative,” a central bank spokesperson said in an emailed statement on Friday.On Friday, customers were queuing inside and outside Co-op branches leading to an increase in withdrawals, sources familiar with the matter said. In the first three months of the year, the Co-ops saw €2 billion in cash withdrawals amid concerns over the bank’s capital adequacy.The Co-op, the second largest lender on the island, has a ‘very important market share in deposits’ facilitating ‘critical functions’ for the economy, the central bank spokesperson said.The Cyprus Coperative Bank declined to comment.“Therefore, interest and economic and financial stability necessitate that there is no impact on insured depositors. Therefore, even in the case of considering the probability of resolution, public interest will lead to the complete protection of insured deposits without raising the issue of liquidating the bank if the deal on the sale of the Cyprus Cooperative Bank’s operations is not completed,”On Thursday, Yiangos Demetriou, head of the central bank’s supervision department warned members of the parliament’s watchdog committee of the ‘disastrous’ effects the non-implementation of the agreement signed by Hellenic Bank with the Cyprus Cooperative Bank on Monday would have. Demetriou had also said that the European Central Bank and the Single Resolution Mechanism, were preparing for a scenario under which the deal was not implemented.The deal, which provides for the transfer of the Co-op’s operations to Hellenic, including €9.7bn in deposits, would spare the Co-op from being liquidated, Demetriou said.His warnings came as some parties left open whether they would approve a bill that would allow the government to extend guarantees to Hellenic Bank to shield it from a probable under performance of assets it agreed to acquire. The implementation of the deal also requires the approval of a bundle of amendments in legislation to help banks reduce their non-performing loans, which the European Commission set as condition for allowing taxpayers’ money to facilitate the deal.The Central Bank of Cyprus spokesperson added that deposits up to €100,000 per individual or legal entity per financial institution remain guaranteed in accordance with a European directive transposed into national law.In 2013, depositors at Cyprus Popular Bank lost all their uninsured deposits after the bank ran out of capital while those at Bank of Cyprus recapitalised it with almost half of their savings in excess of €100,000.You May LikePopularEverythingColorado Mom Adopted Two Children, Months Later She Learned Who They Really ArePopularEverythingUndoLivestlyChip And Joanna’s $18M Mansion Is Perfect, But It’s The Backyard Everyone Is Talking AboutLivestlyUndoSmart Tips DailySeniors With No Life Insurance May Get A $250,000 Policy If They Do ThisSmart Tips DailyUndo Pensioner dies after crash on Paphos-Polis roadUndoCypriot tycoon launches ‘Bank of Cannabis’UndoThree arrested in connection with hotel theftsUndoby Taboolaby Taboolalast_img read more
