Japan’s Nikkei index ended last week more than ten per cent lower after fears of damage to companies’ long-term growth prospects caused investors to sell. But Buffett said the event did not alter Japan’s long-term economic prospects. He would “certainly not” sell Japanese stocks and believed the market would recover.

Un seul Dieu ne nous a-t-il pas créés ? », demandait-il (2 :10). Jésus nous a enseigné la même chose lorsqu’il a relaté le récit du Bon Samaritain. Nous sommes tous en effet les enfants de Dieu. Et si nous sommes tous les enfants de Dieu, nous sommes alors tous frères et sœurs.Nous avons ces derniers jours vu et été les témoins de la dévastation causée par l’ouragan Harvey. Nos frères et sœurs du Texas et de Louisiane ont besoin de notre aide.Episcopal Relief & Development nous rappelle de ne pas envoyer d’aliments, de vêtements ou d’autres articles car les diocèses affectés n’ont qu’une capacité limitée voire inexistante pour recevoir, stocker ou distribuer des marchandises.

Bristol charities launch contactless donation points to help the homeless

No Comments

first_img Tagged with: contactless South West Technology David Ingerslev, project manager at St Mungo’s and Rough Sleeping Partnership lead, said:“There is nothing else like this in Bristol. They will make donating easier for shoppers who may not carry small change but who feel compelled to take action to support people they see rough sleeping. It is simple, immediate and will directly help people to be safer off the streets.” Contactless donation points have launched in Bristol to help fund the city’s night shelters for people sleeping rough.Donors can touch their bankcard on the points in the Broadmead area of the city to give £2 directly to the #SOSBristol fundraising campaign. Safer off the Streets (SOS) was launched in November 2016 and is aiming to raise £100,000 for the city’s four night shelters, which offer 70 emergency bed spaces. The four shelters are free to clients, with donations going towards running costs, laundry bills and volunteer expenses.Julian Trust, Caring in Bristol, Crisis Centre Ministries and St Mungo’s run the shelters in partnership with Bristol City Council. SOS Bristol is an initiative from the Rough Sleeping Partnership, set up by the city’s council to tackle rising homelessness in the city through new service provision and awareness campaigns. The Broadmead Business Improvement District (BID) has donated the use of the units.No data will be stored in the units or by any of the charities. The donation will appear on bank statements as St Mungo’s but will be allocated across the partner charities.

FHFA Adopts New Plan Under Director Watt; Won’t Reduce GSE Market Share

No Comments

first_img FHFA Adopts New Plan Under Director Watt; Won’t Reduce GSE Market Share in Daily Dose, Featured, Government, Headlines, News Previous: DS News Webcast: Wednesday 5/14/2014 Next: Survey: Americans Don’t Know How Credit Scores are Calculated Servicers Navigate the Post-Pandemic World 2 days ago Conservatorship Fannie Mae FHFA Freddie Mac Mel Watt 2014-05-14 Krista Franks Brock In a speaking engagement at the Brookings Institution, Federal Housing Finance Agency (FHFA) Director Melvin L. Watt spoke about his new 2014 Strategic Plan for the Conservatorships of Fannie Mae and Freddie Mac, highlighting a few major changes to the plan. Notably Watt’s plan removes any intention to reduce the GSEs’ presence in the market, a central part of former Acting Director Edward DeMarco’s strategic plan.Instead of reducing the agencies’ market footprint as specified by DeMarco, Watt aims to reduce the risk the agencies pose to taxpayers.”This approach allows us to meet our mandates of upholding safety and soundness and ensuring broad market liquidity,” Watt said before his audience at the Brookings Institution.The goal of reducing risk will be achieved through credit risk transfers at both Fannie Mae and Freddie Mac, Watt explained. The GSEs will triple their credit risk transfers from last year with a stated goal of transferring $90 billion this year.FHFA will also reduce taxpayer risk by requiring the GSEs to reduce their retained portfolios and by encouraging private capital in the mortgage market, Watt said.While Watt will keep alive DeMarco’s goal of creating a securitization infrastructure that can be adapted for the future secondary market, he explained his main objective under this stated goal will be to create a Common Securitization Platform “that can undertake Fannie Mae and Freddie Mac’s current securitization operations.”Watt explained “pursuing too many objectives all at the same time would be problematic,” so he will focus on a system that accommodates the GSEs’ current platforms.Another major objective for the FHFA this year is to create a common security for Fannie and Freddie, which Watt said, will increase market liquidity.Beyond creating the Common Securitization Platform and reducing taxpayer risk, Watt’s major focus will be on maintaining the safety and soundness of Fannie Mae and Freddie Mac.Watt announced he will not lower loan limits for the GSEs, and he will make changes to representation and warranty standards. The standards will now allow for two delinquent payments over the first 36 months of a loan, and cancellation of mortgage insurance is no longer cause for automatic repurchase.Missing from Watt’s strategic plan was any mention of housing finance reform, but Watt addressed this omission in his speech.”I am well aware, and regularly express my belief, that conservatorship should never be viewed as permanent or as a desirable end state and that housing finance reform is necessary,” Watt said. “However, Congress and the Administration have the important job of deciding on housing finance reform legislation, not FHFA.” Home / Daily Dose / FHFA Adopts New Plan Under Director Watt; Won’t Reduce GSE Market Share Share Save Data Provider Black Knight to Acquire Top of Mind 2 days ago Demand Propels Home Prices Upward 2 days ago Tagged with: Conservatorship Fannie Mae FHFA Freddie Mac Mel Watt The Best Markets For Residential Property Investors 2 days ago Krista Franks Brock is a professional writer and editor who has covered the mortgage banking and default servicing sectors since 2011.

Mesospheric winds measured by MF radar with full correlation analysis: error properties and impacts on studies of wind variance

No Comments

first_imgThe mesosphere is one of the most difficult parts of the atmosphere to sample; it is too high for balloon measurements and too low for in situ satellites. Consequently, there is a reliance on remote sensing (either from the ground or from space) to diagnose this region. Ground-based radars have been used since the second half of the 20th century to probe the dynamics of the mesosphere; medium-frequency (MF) radars provide estimates of the horizontal wind fields and are still used to analyse tidal structures and planetary waves that modulate the meridional and zonal winds. The variance of the winds has traditionally been linked qualitatively to the occurrence of gravity waves. In this paper, the method of wind retrieval (full correlation analysis) employed by MF radars is considered with reference to two systems in Antarctica at different latitude (Halley at 76∘ S and Rothera at 67∘ S). It is shown that the width of the velocity distribution and occurrence of “outliers” is related to the measured levels of anisotropy in the received signal pattern. The magnitude of the error distribution, as represented by the wind variance, varies with both insolation levels and geomagnetic activity. Thus, it is demonstrated that for these two radars the influence of gravity waves may not be the primary mechanism that controls the overall variance.last_img read more
