• Quebec taken to court over cancellation of 18000 immigration applications

    first_imgMONTREAL — The Quebec government is being sued over its decision to cancel a backlog of more than 18,000 immigration applications as it overhauls its system for selecting newcomers.An association representing Quebec immigration lawyers filed an injunction request today seeking a halt to the policy. It wants the Immigration Department to be ordered to resume processing the applications.The request, made in the name of a Korean woman, Seeun Park, states that potential immigrants whose applications have been scrapped feel humiliated and betrayed.People whose applications were already being processed were informed they would have to start over under a new system.Quebec Immigration Minister Simon Jolin-Barrette tabled Bill 9 on Feb. 7, setting out a legal framework that would allow the province to be more selective with immigrants.Jolin-Barrette said the new approach would better match applicants to the needs of the labour market and ensure immigrants speak French and respect Quebec values.The Canadian Presslast_img read more

  • UN agency teams up with global football body ahead of South Africa

    10 April 2007Ahead of the soccer World Cup in South Africa in 2010, the United Nations tourism agency is teaming up with FIFA (Federation Internationale de Football Association) to help promote development, including eliminating poverty and supporting sustainable tourism, across the African continent by using the sport as the driving force. “The World Cup constitutes an opportunity that the countries of the region can seize in order to obtain the maximum socio-economic, promotional and cultural benefits. It should also contribute to strengthening the image of Africa”, said UN World Tourism Organization (UNWTO) Secretary-General Francesco Frangialli. Aware of the fact that Africa can benefit from this major event, the heads of FIFA, the UNWTO and the UNWTO ST-EP Foundation (Sustainable Tourism – Eliminating Poverty) are preparing a partnership to assist African countries within the framework of the 2010 FIFA World Cup, UNWTO said in a press release. Particularly through its ST-EP programme, UNWTO is working for poverty alleviation, linking its longstanding pursuit of sustainable tourism with the UN Millennium Development Goals (MDGs) and its own Global Code of Ethics. The MDGs are a set of globally-agreed time-bound targets aimed at eliminating a host of social ills. The World Cup, through the assistance provided by UNWTO and with travel and tourism as its main thrust, represents an opportunity to promote the whole of Africa to international markets, to reinforce the image of the continent as a safe and significant tourism destination and to help people develop closer relations, the agency said. Earlier this year, the African Union (AU), South Africa and Ethiopia nominated 2007 as the International Year of African Football, an initiative that was welcomed by the UN as part of its global drive linking sport with development. read more

  • Late charge propels Ohio State mens basketball to 6864 upset of No

    Iowa senior center Adam Woodbury (34) puts up a shot while OSU freshman center Daniel Giddens (4) defends during a game on Feb. 28 at the Schottenstein Center.Credit: Evan Szymowicz | Sports DirectorAfter its five-point halftime lead quickly evaporated in the beginning of the second half, the Ohio State men’s basketball team desperately tried to hang on as eighth-ranked Iowa slowly gained control. Then, with about four minutes left in the game, it all changed. Redshirt sophomore guard Kam Williams sank a jumper, trimming Iowa’s lead to four. From there, the Buckeyes rattled off a 10-2 run, which included two clutch 3-pointers, the first by junior forward Marc Loving. The second came from Williams in the corner after a cross-court feed from JaQuan Lyle to give OSU a 66-62 lead. Iowa trimmed it to a one-basket deficit after a layup from senior center Adam Woodbury, and it had a chance to tie it with less than five seconds remaining, but senior guard Mike Gesell was swatted from behind by sophomore forward Keita Bates-Diop at the rim. As the scarlet-and-gray clad crowd erupted in piercing applause, Loving chased the ball down, then calmly sank two free throws to cap off the Buckeyes’ second-half push to grab a 68-64 upset on Sunday afternoon at the Schottenstein Center. “This was a great win, because (first) we won the game but (also) how we had to win it,” OSU coach Thad Matta said. “Being down, and fighting and scraping and clawing, we came together.” Loving led OSU (19-11, 11-6) with 25 points on 7-of-13 shooting, including four 3-pointers. It was his first 20-plus point game since Jan. 3. Besides getting it done on defense down the stretch, Bates-Diop supplied 19 points and six rebounds. Williams, who was instrumental in the second half as OSU climbed back into it, finished with 11 points after a sluggish start. His energy off the bench, coupled with his scoring punch, proved to a key reason why the Buckeyes engineered the upset.“Just because I’m missing shots doesn’t mean I have to stop being aggressive,” Williams said. “I just stay confident in my ability, and it worked out pretty well.” The game’s opening five minutes were characterized by sloppy play — uncontested rebounds careening of players’ hands that eventually fell out of bounds, travels and lazy passes. At the 15-minute mark, the teams had a combined seven turnovers, which was one more than total shots made. Shortly after though, the offenses began to show a pulse.The Hawkeyes (20-8, 11-5) secured a 12-7 advantage after an 8-0 run, and it looked like they really found their stride, but Loving would not let them break free.The junior forward hit his second 3-pointer of the game, then followed it up with a layup after an aggressive take. Then, after a two-minute back-and-forth, Loving connected again from deep to give OSU a 15-13 lead with 11:04 left in the half. Both teams brought high energy levels, as players were looking to push the ball off misses and were quick to the deck for loose balls. Williams didn’t score in his first-half stint off the bench, yet his ravid activity spread to his teammates. Neither team could swing momentum solely in its favor, as they traded baskets throughout the final 10 minutes of the first half. It wasn’t until the final three minutes that the Buckeyes really looked like the better team. After a crafty up-and-under reverse layup by Bates-Diop at the 1:42 mark, OSU led 33-28. Maybe sensing it was its last time to see OSU at home in the regular season, the crowd was engaged, responding to unfavorable calls with emphatic boos, while cheering made baskets with heavy applause. It provided the underdog Buckeyes with the necessary boost to overcome an 11-turnover first half to head into the locker room leading 35-30. “We feed off their energy,” Loving said of the louder-than-usual fans. “The adrenaline definitely helps boost you a little bit.” Loving paced the Scarlet and Gray with 13 points on 4-of-5 shooting, three of which were from downtown. Bates-Diop complemented Loving with 11 points of his own, as well as four rebounds. As a team, the Buckeyes posted a 54 percent clip from the field, which was critical, along with the crowd’s boost, in overcoming 11 turnovers. The Hawkeyes, despite shooting 39 percent from the field, including an 0-for-7 showing from 3-point territory, were able to trail by just five because a balanced attack. Seven players tallied points, with Gesell leading the way with 10. Senior forward Jarrod Uthoff, a top candidate for conference player of the year, was held to seven points on 2-of-7 shooting. If the Buckeyes devised a scheme during halftime to quickly bury the Hawkeyes, it was hard to tell.The first two minutes couldn’t have gone much worse for OSU. The Buckeyes had three turnovers, including a lazy cross-court pass and one that went through redshirt sophomore center Trevor Thompson’s legs as he rolled uncovered to the basket. Meanwhile for the Hawkeyes, junior guard Peter Jok drained a corner 3-pointer and Gesell sank two three throws to tie the game at 35-35. OSU had the chance to try and put away Iowa early on, but it simply couldn’t rid itself of the turnovers, which continued to give the Hawkeyes extra possessions. Frankly, the Buckeyes weren’t shooting bad from the field — at the 12:00 mark, they were at a respectable 48 percent — it’s just that they kept turning it over before attempting shots. This allowed Iowa, powered by nine successive points from Uthoff, to methodically build momentum, despite multiple aggressive attempts by OSU to keep the game within its grasp. After grabbing its first second-half lead at the 13:46 mark, Iowa held control over the next seven minutes, although Williams, Loving and Bates-Diop tried to claw OSU back. Eventually, after trailing for much of the second half, the Buckeyes swung momentum back in their favor after Williams began heating up. Feeding off the crowd and, OSU was able to string together near-flawless play down to stretch to get the win in final regular-season game at the Schott. “Today we just showed a great amount of toughness and the ability to fight adversity,” Loving said. “It’s hard to stay in the game with that amount of turnovers.”  Although Lyle didn’t score, the freshman point guard added five rebounds and five assists, two of which set up critical 3-pointers down the stretch. Matta praised his young player for finding ways to impact the game outside of the scoring column. Uthoff and Gesell finished with 16 points apiece to lead the Hawkeyes, who now drop to a three-way tie for second place in the Big Ten.Looking for a second straight upset as a last-ditch effort to bolster their NCAA tournament résumé, the Buckeyes are scheduled to conclude their regular season Saturday on the road against Michigan State. OSU fell to the Spartans 81-62 at home on Tuesday. The rematch is set for noon in East Lansing, Michigan. “We’ve got to be a better basketball team up there on Saturday than we were last Tuesday,” Matta said. “We’ll go back to the drawing board, keep working and get better.” read more

  • Lusage du Primpéran déconseillé chez les moins de 18 ans

    first_imgL’usage du Primpéran déconseillé chez les moins de 18 ansL’Afssaps a réévalué le bénéfice-risque des médicaments à base de métoclopramide, tels que le Primpéran, bien connu contre les nausées et les vomissements. Elle déconseille désormais l’utilisation chez les moins de 18 ans de ce traitement déjà contre-indiqué chez le nouveau-né.A l’heure où les autorités sanitaires ont renforcé leur vigilance concernant les médicaments et leurs effets secondaires, c’est une nouvelle recommandation que vient tout juste d’émettre l’Agence française de sécurité sanitaire des produits de santé (Afssaps). Celle-ci concerne un médicament très connu et largement répandu, le Primpéran, indiqué contre les nausées et les vomissements chez l’adulte comme chez l’enfant. À lire aussiAntihistaminique : qu’est-ce que c’est ? A quoi ça sert ?Déjà contre-indiqué chez le nouveau-né, ce dernier est à base de métoclopramide, un neuroleptique antagoniste de la dopamine qui agit sur la motricité intestinale mais qui peut aussi entrainer des effets secondaires. Ainsi, la molécule a fait l’objet d’une réévaluation du bénéfice/risque par la Commission d’autorisation de mise sur le marché (AMM). Au vu des résultats, celle-ci a alors décidé de déconseiller l’utilisation du Primpéran et de ses génériques chez les enfants et adolescents en dessous de 18 ans. Quant aux spécialités uniquement à visée pédiatrique, tels que le Primpéran nourrisson et enfants et le Primpéran enfants, elles vont être purement et simplement retirées du marché. Les effets indésirables mis en cause sont des troubles neurologiques tels que des mouvements anormaux de la tête et du cou, spasmes du visage, contraction des mâchoires, mouvements anormaux des yeux, difficulté pour avaler ou pour parler ou encore torticolis. De plus, des enquêtes de pharmacovigilance ont démontré un mésusage en pédiatrie pouvant conduire à un surdosage apparaissant comme un facteur de risque important dans la survenue d’effets indésirables neurologiques. L’Afssaps a ainsi précisé dans un communiqué (lien non disponible) que la réévaluation du bénéfice-risque du métoclopramide révélait un “profil de risque défavorable” suivi d’un “risque augmenté de survenue d’effets neurologiques.” Ajouté à cette nouvelle recommandation, l’Agence a également proposé d’élargir la réévaluation du bénéfice/risque chez l’adulte et particulièrement chez le sujet âgé en raison notamment du risque d’effets indésirables neurologiques et cardiovasculaires potentiellement graves.  Le 17 octobre 2011 à 19:23 • Maxime Lambertlast_img read more

  • SpiderMan Homecomings Tom Holland to Play Young Nathan Drake

    first_img Tom Holland Responds to Disney-Sony Spider-Man FeudRobert Downey Jr. and Tom Holland Reunite Amid Spider-Man Dispute Sony Pictures has just announced that Spider-Man: Homecoming star, Tom Holland, will play Nathan Drake in the upcoming Uncharted live-action film.According to Deadline, the Shawn Levy-helmed Uncharted movie will be a prequel of sorts. It is inspired by a sequence in Uncharted three where players got to control a prepubescent Nathan Drake. Tom Holland’s Drake will be older than the child from Uncharted three, but he will be considerably younger than the adult Drake everyone knows.Sony Pictures head Tom Rothman was inspired to go with a younger version of Nathan Drake after seeing the latest cut of Spider-Man: Homecoming. As such, the story will focus on how Drake grows to become the famous treasure hunter.Having Holland play a young Nathan Drake certainly seems odd, but there’s logic behind it. After appearing in Captain America: Civil War as Spider-Man, Holland’s star has been on the rise. The release of Spider-Man: Homecoming will no doubt push him further into super-star status. Given all of that, it makes sense that Sony would want to have him to be the protagonist of another potentially huge franchise. Still, this change is something fans of the Uncharted series will have to adjust to since they are used to a Nathan Drake who is in his early 40s.The Uncharted film has been in development hell since 2009. A lot of actors, directors, and writers have been attached to the project at one point or another. Now that the film has a solid director and star, it appears that it will at last see the light of day. Video game-based movies don’t exactly have the best track record when it comes to quality. Hopefully, this Uncharted film will buck expectations and be a great movie-going experience.Spider-Man: Homecoming will be released in movie theaters on July 7. Uncharted: The Lost Legacy will be released exclusively on PlayStation 4 on August 22. Stay on targetlast_img read more

Why then, asks Hoda Katebi, do American Muslim women not take care to wear a hijab that is in line with their thinking about human rights and worker exploitation?“Our clothes are so intimate to our bodies,” said Katebi, 24, an Iranian American community organizer whose popular political fashion blog and 2016 book, “Tehran Streetstyle,” has given her an international platform.“What does it do to us spiritually if our hijabs are made in a sweatshop? Muslims care so deeply that our food is halal, that our investments are halal. And I don’t think anyone asked that question about our clothes.”Hoda Katebi laughs while holding the namesake for Blue Tin Production at the American Islamic College in Chicago on April 24, 2019. RNS photo by Aysha KhanWith her latest project, Blue Tin Production, Katebi is making sure that U.S. Muslim designers, Islamic clothing companies and their customers have a way to put their money where their morals are.Billed as one of the country’s first clothing cooperatives run by refugee and immigrant women, Blue Tin aims to offer designers in the U.S. a transparently ethical manufacturing company, while creating well-paying work opportunities for skilled immigrant and refugee women – women like Mercy, a domestic violence survivor from Nigeria with mean sewing skills.Mercy, who asked that her last name not be used, has worked in fashion since 1987. Back home in Lagos, she owned her own business, but after she moved in 2003 with her four children to Chicago, her husband wouldn’t allow her to work or go out. Mercy savored the small pockets of time she had to sew in their basement before he returned home.Sixteen years later, she’s in a better place, having left her abusive husband and, against all odds, started a new business.When Katebi hired her as one of three founding worker-owners of Blue Tin Production after a skills test, out of more than 100 other immigrant women, Mercy began crying with relief.“Sewing is a gift from God,” Mercy said, feeding another yard of cloth through the teeth of her sewing machine. “When you have a gift, you have to use it for good. You have to use it to carry your community along.”Her fellow worker-owners are a Kurdish-Syrian woman and a woman from Aleppo who came to the U.S. in 2016 with four of her children after her parents, husband, two siblings and one child were killed in the Syrian civil war. Both seamstresses requested that they not be named or photographed.Mercy works on a garment in the Blue Tin Production studio space at the American Islamic College in Chicago on April 24, 2019. RNS photo by Aysha KhanMercy and her two colleagues make collective business decisions and receive fair wages, but many local Muslim professionals have donated their own time and money to make sure the seamstresses receive benefits, too, providing child care, transportation and health care, as well as translation and legal help.All three worker-owners have volunteered to teach other women sewing skills so they can become employable. “We are like family here,” Mercy said. “It is a blessing to be able to give back.”Katebi is clear, however, that her cooperative isn’t a charity.“We don’t want you to work with us because you feel bad for us,” she said, sitting in Blue Tin’s studio space at American Islamic College in the city’s Buena Park neighborhood. “We want people to work with us because we have the highest centers of not only quality but also ethical and transparent workspace standards.”The American Islamic College in Chicago on April 24, 2019. RNS photo by Aysha KhanKatebi decided to create the company — named after the iconic Danish butter cookie tins that immigrant women around the world use to store their sewing supplies — while researching manufacturers for her own ethical clothing line that would hold established brands accountable for their failures to invest in ethical labor practices.She eventually realized that if she wanted to produce clothes in smaller batches that met her ethical standards, she would have to manufacture them herself.Blue Tin Production kicked off its pilot phase in January and will fully launch later this year. The company is currently raising funds for industrial-level equipment to supply the clients, including at least one major national department store, already on Blue Tin’s waiting list.Katebi, born to Shiite Muslim immigrants in Edmond, Okla., says she learned the power of fashion as a “global political language” from a young age. When she began wearing hijab in sixth grade, she was called a terrorist and was physically assaulted by classmates. She quickly lost all her friends and her self-esteem.“Sometimes it was like, maybe if I wear enough Abercrombie & Fitch, I won’t get punched in the face,” she said. “Maybe they won’t look at me like I’m different.”At the University of Chicago, where she began in 2012, she studied underground fashion, gender, imperialism and Iran. Her research became the basis of her blog, JooJoo Azad (Persian for “free bird”), and her book. When, in an appearance on a local Chicago TV news show she was made to defend wearing hijab and the Iranian regime, she was launched into internet stardom.Blue Tin builds on efforts like the Artisan Sewing Cooperative in New York City, according to labor and economic justice lawyer Chaumtoli Huq, who heads the nonprofit Law@theMargins. Founded by former garment workers and organizers Zahida Raj and Rabeya Akter, the Artisan Sewing Cooperative has linked harsh labor conditions abroad with the economic conditions that make it difficult for U.S.-based immigrant women to find work.“The whole business model in itself pushes wages down, which is why you see high rates of labor rights violations,” Huq said. “The fast-fashion model relies on cheap labor because the designs have quick turnover. So it’s a high-consumption, high-turnover and -production, and cheap-labor model.”That doesn’t mean that clothing can’t be produced in Asia without exploitation, Huq emphasized, pointing to the decades of organizing that Bangladeshi women have done to push for living wages and to have their legal rights to on-site day care and maternity leave recognized.In the U.S., however, Muslim activists often ignore labor rights issues abroad. Huq points to the fawning response of many Muslim writers to H&M’s first hijab-wearing model. In one post from the blog MuslimGirl.com, a writer said she hoped to see the model in more ads for other brands “who want to be bold enough to let Muslim women be seen.”Those marketing campaigns for diversity, said Huq, “mask their exploitative practices” in Muslim-majority countries.An advertisement featuring H&M’s first hijab-wearing model. Video screenshotKatebi has also long criticized U.S. Muslim women for supporting what she sees as major global fashion brands’ “money-grabbing” act of Muslim representation.“Seeing all these Muslims rush at H&M and Zara is really heartbreaking,” Katebi said. “A lot of brands right now are trying to tap into the Muslim dollar by pretending they support Muslims.”Katebi pointed to Nike as an example. Soon after she published a 2017 blog post titled “If You Use Our Faces Maybe Stop Killing Our People?”, the athletic wear company launched its Nike Pro Hijab.Hijab-wearing social media influencers around the world immediately began posting selfies with the hijab, lauding the company for empowering Muslim women and working with Muslims during the design process.A model sports the Nike Pro Hijab. Photo courtesy of Nike/Vivienne Balla“What Nike has done for Muslim athletes is a dream that we never thought would happen,” one Muslim figure skater said. Just this week, the company’s first hijab-wearing model called for other major companies to follow suit with better representation of Muslim women.But many fast fashion retailers, who mass produce trendy clothing as quickly and cheaply as possible, leave garment workers out of these conversations. Baptist World Aid’s annual Ethical Fashion Report criticized Nike for lackluster worker empowerment initiatives, transparency and traceability, and for not making moves to pay living wages across its supply chain.A recent report by Global Labor Justice noted illegal use of short-term contracts in H&M supply chains, which undermines workers’ job security and ability to demand safe workplaces.While H&M and many other fast-fashion companies’ workers did receive the local legal minimum wage, those wages often constitute a fraction of a living wage. Other companies demand stiff production targets and piecework that endanger workers’ health and increase the risk of workplace accidents.Companies, including H&M, routinely lay the blame for workplace abuse — including forced labor, child labor and sexual abuse — at the feet of subcontractors.Nike and H&M didn’t respond to requests for comment.Increased representation isn’t worth the cost of supporting the fast-fashion industry, said Katebi.“It’s utterly disgusting to me to try to define what it means to be Muslim with just a hijab,” Katebi said. “For Muslims, as a global ummah (community), we are literally obliged by our faith to challenge oppression. Especially the Muslim community’s oppression.”She points to a verse of the Quran that calls oppression a greater evil than even killing. “That’s literally what we’re doing, twice over – once so we can get cheap clothes and again so we can feel seen by a corporation,” she said.The past few years have seen a slow awakening of many Muslims to these issues.Muslim-owned clothing companies such as Veil Garments, Sukoon Active and Hijabican have committed to ethical sourcing and manufacturing practices, and many Muslim designers have asked to work with Blue Tin Production. Now, she’s reaching out to other Muslim companies to urge them to reconsider where they source their production.“It’s a critical turning point for understanding garment workers as our community, as our ummah,” Katebi said.Her hopes of creating a new sense of conscience are heightened because, she said, “Muslims are a little easier to guilt-trip. It’s easier to email a hijab brand and be like, ‘Yo, are you literally making Islamic clothing in sweatshops?’” Instagram apostasy stirs controversy over Christian ‘influencers’ August 30, 2019 News Columns • Opinion • Simran Jeet Singh: Articles of Faith Facebook Twitter Pinterest LinkedIn ReddIt Email,About the authorView All Posts By: Aysha Khan ayshabkhan Aysha Khan ayshabkhan Share This!

  • Two planets orbiting Teegardens star described as most earthlike found yet

DOI: 10.3847/2041-8213/ab2df7 A pair of researchers, one with the Hebrew University of Jerusalem, the other Tel Aviv University, has found evidence that suggests two of Teegarden’s star planets are the most Earth-like found yet. In their paper published in The Astrophysical Journal Letters, Amri Wandel and Lev Tal-Or describe their study of the two exoplanets and what they found. Journal information: Astrophysical Journal Letters Citation: Two planets orbiting Teegarden’s star described as most earthlike found yet (2019, August 8) retrieved 18 August 2019 from https://phys.org/news/2019-08-planets-orbiting-teegarden-star-earthlike.html © 2019 Science X Network New Earth-like exoplanets discovered around red dwarf Teegarden star Credit: CC0 Public Domain Back in 2003, astrophysicist Bonnard Teegarden led a team that discovered what is now known as Teegarden’s star—a red M dwarf star approximately 12.5 light-years away. Since that time, space scientists have studied both the star and the planets that make up its star system. In this new effort, the researchers focused their efforts on two of those exoplanets, which are called Teegarden’s star b and c—both were first detected this past June by a team working on the CARMENES survey.The work by Wandel and Tal-Or was focused on learning more about the habitability of the two exoplanets. As part of that effort, they noted that both are relatively close to their star, with orbits of just 4.9 and 11.4 days, putting them both firmly in the Goldilocks zone. They note that both are tidally locked, which means one side always faces the sun, which also means they have no day/night cycle.The researchers acknowledge that it is not known what sort of atmospheres the two planets have, but suggest it is likely either or both could support water. This is because they are tidally locked, which means that even a thin atmosphere would be enough to spread the warmth and cold across the dark/light dividing line. They calculated that atmospheres between one-third that of Earth’s or as much as 17 times as dense would allow for liquid water to exist on the surface of either planet. They also note that both of the planets are near in size to Earth. And as part of applying an analytic habitability model to the planets, the researchers calculated that Teegarden b has a 60 percent chance of having surface temperatures between zero and 50 degrees C—Teegarden c was found to be colder, much more like Mars. The researchers conclude that conditions in the transition zone appear to be favorable for supporting life. Explore furtherlast_img read more

  • 2015 Outlook Calls for 4 Increase in Home Sales

    first_img in Daily Dose, Data, Headlines, News Share Freddie Mac predicted that 2015 will see the highest level of home sales in the U.S. since 2007 in its December 2014 U.S. Economic and Housing Market Outlook released on Tuesday.In the report, Freddie Mac looked back at five key consensus predictions for 2014, how they fared, and how they will affect housing and the economy next year. In addition to home sales, the four other areas examined were mortgage originations, home values, rental market, and mortgage rates.A 4 percent jump is expected for home sales up to 5.6 million in 2015, which would be the highest annual level home sales have experience since 2007, according to the report. A weaker than expected economy and a harsh winter brought down home sales for the first half of 2014 in spite of the healthy gains that were predicted at the start of the year. But home sales and the economy made a strong comeback for the second half of 2014, and analysts expect that recovery to continue on into 2015.Home price gains experienced moderate gains in 2014, as were predicted following the double-digit increases in 2013. In 2014, home value gains grew at a rate of 4.5 percent, and in 2015, they are expected to increase by 3.0 percent, according to the report. Rental vacancies fell to their lowest level since 2000 in the last year, and 30-year fixed mortgage rates are expected to average 4.4 percent in 2015 after hovering just below 4 percent in December.”The recent drop in oil prices has been an unexpected boon for consumers’ pocketbooks and most businesses,” said Frank Nothaft, Freddie Mac vice president and chief economist. “Economic growth has picked up over the final nine months of 2014 and lower energy costs are expected to support growth of about 3 percent for the U.S. in 2015. Therefore we expect the housing market to continue to strengthen with home sales rising to their best sales pace in eight years, national house price indexes up, and rental markets continuing to display low vacancy rates and the highest level of new apartment completions in 25 years.” December 18, 2014 441 Views center_img 2015 Outlook Calls for 4% Increase in Home Sales Forecast Freddie Mac Home Sales Mortgage Rates 2014-12-18 Seth Welbornlast_img read more

    first_imgAugust 14 , 2018 Japanese apple saplings reportedly sold illegally … She emphasized that the key to the breeding programs was that they develop varieties that keep the Chilean fruit industry relevant at the international level.ApplesPablo Grau, who heads up research institute INIA’s apple breeding program, in collaboration with the Fruit Exporters’ Association (Asoex) and the Catholic University, also expected to see an apple launch within four years.It is currently in the second stage of development, having started in 2013 and is due to finish in January 2022. By that time at least one Chilean-bred apple variety is expected to be ready.”We are currently doing the cross and evaluating the material under the conditions that we have,” he said.He explained resistance to the Venturia fungus, which causes apple scab disease, would be an important characteristic of the new variety. He said this would cut down on production costs, given that in some cases growers have to carry out 18 fumigations for the fruit to be commercially acceptable.Grau explained that while there were Venturia-resistant varieties available in the market, they not did have the other key characteristics necessary for new apple varieties.”A good appearance, color, shape and international quality … are what the market is looking for, as well as juiciness and taste etcetera,” he said. Shipping companies drop British flag to avoid Brex … Chile is developing new varieties for various fruits and expects to have the first apple and citrus cultivars ready for 2022, with trials currently underway.The public and private projects – which also involve stonefruit, table grapes and cherries – are aimed at providing Chilean growers with a boost in both domestic and international markets.Johanna Mártiz, an associate professor of Agronomy and Forestry Engineering at the Catholic University of Chile, works in a breeding program that is developing seedless citrus varieties.She told Fresh Fruit Portal that the project was born from the problems growers were experiencing in the market with seeded lemon and mandarin varieties.”It is estimated that 35% of the fruit receives lower prices because of the seeds … and that is where this  breeding program came from,” she said, adding the program is largely focused on irradiating buds.Trials are underway for seedless mandarin and lemon varieties, and a spineless Limonero Fino 49 tree has also been developed. Mártiz expects that within four years the first varieties will be ready for their commercial launch. The new clementine variety is a cross between a clemenules and a oronules, while the mandarin variety has W. Murcott and Fortune parentage, and the lemon cross is between Eureka Frost and Fino 49.Expectations are highest for the mandarin variety, she said.”These selections are under final trials to move to the pre-commercial stage, where we will begin to evaluate all their agronomic characteristics to see how productive they are, if they meet the industry’s standards, among other things,” she said.center_img South Africa: Jupiter Group upgrades practices, fa … Scientists’ tomato genome-mapping project provides … You might also be interested inlast_img read more
