Moroccos Unemployment Rate Up in Third Quarter of 2015

Rabat – Morocco’s unemployment rate reached 10.1 percent in the third quarter of 2015, an increase of 0.5 percent compared to the same period in 2014, according to a report on the 3Q 2015 results for the labor market issued by the Haut Commissariat au Plan (HCP).The number of unemployed people in the labor force grew by 5.8 percent, increasing from 1,140,000   people registered as unemployed in 2014 to 1,206,000 jobless in the same period in 2015, according to HCP.The unemployment rate in urban areas rose from 14.5 percent to 15.1 percent, and in rural areas from 4.1 percent to 4.3percent.Unemployment is acute for young people holding diplomas and those aged between 15 and 24 years old (collectively, 21.4 percent), and for those living in the countryside (39.3 percent).  The highest unemployment rates were reported among diploma holders (up 1.2 points) and young people aged between 15 and 24 years old (up 0 .8 point), underlined HCP. The unemployed labor force also includes discouraged workers of legal employment age who are not actively seeking employment or who did not find employment after long-term unemployment. In the 2015 third quarter results, those unemployed persons accounted for 79,000 of the unemployed, or 6.6 percent of the total compared to 5.4 percent last year, according to the same source.Edited by Elisabeth Myers© Morocco World News.

Howlin Public servants have given a huge amount but this is the

first_imgPublic servants have given a huge amount on the path of recovery and this is a significant further ask and I make no bones about that… But this is the last ask.If the public sector accept the deal that will be put before them “they can make plans for the next three years and know that the State won’t be knocking on their door,” added Howlin.The deal proposed will be different for each sector. There will be no “overarching document” for all “because each sector is so unique,” he explained.On the issue of compulsory redundancies, he hopes if we reach an agreement there will be none but “that’s on condition of people signing up to the deal”.TroikaEvery part of the talks were conveyed to the troika. “The troika trusts us. They knew we would embarking on a challenging agenda. They never expressed a view that they weren’t confident we would get there,” the minister said.“We’re asking public servants to walk with us on this final leg of the path, I think its very important,” concluded Howlin.Read: ‘Industrial peace’ on the way if unions accept pay proposals>More: Pay talks continue as coalition concedes €300m target might be missed> MINISTER FOR PUBLIC Expenditure and Reform, Brendan Holwin, began his announcement in the Taoiseach’s courtyard at Leinster House this afternoon by thanking all “unions who came with an open mind to engage in the talks”.He told waiting media that public sector negotiations between unions and the the Labour Relations Commission were completed and now up for consideration by the 300,000 public servants.“I’m glad that the structure is there but I’m not taking anything for granted in relation to the ballot that’s still out there,” Minister Howlin said. ”It’s now a matter for each union to bring back the document to their own members either through their executive or through ballot.”Despite comments on the contrary by Junior Finance Minister Brian Hayes, Howlin said he believes that the €300 million target saving for 2013 will be met.Howlin said although “figures are important, maintaining peace within the public sector and confidence that people can invest in security in this country” is more important.last_img read more

Prokopis Pavlopoulos asks Ankara to apologise for the Pontian Genocide

first_imgDuring a visit at Panagia Sumela monastery near Veria, in northern Greece, to mark this year’s 15 August commemoration of the Dormition of the Virgin, Greek President of Democracy Prokopis Pavlopoulos said that the nation would continue to fight “until the recognition of the genocide of Pontic Greeks and the expression of a sincere apology by the descendants of the perpetrators, Turkey.”He also stated that Ankara must offer a “sincere apology” for the slaughter of hundreds of thousands of Black Sea, or Pontic Greeks by the Turks almost a century ago.Greece has since 1994 recognised the murder of up to around 370,000 Greeks who lived on the shores of the Black Sea between 1914 and 1923 as genocide holding May 19 as an annual day of remembrance.Mr Pavlopoulos also took to the press to criticize the Turkish authorities’ newly imposed ban on the historic Monastery of Panagia Sumela, Kathimerini reports.The Ecumenical Patriarchate was notified that the permit allowing the monastery to perform the mass for the Christian Orthodox religious ceremony, citing building repair works. Meanwhile, Pontic Greek associations have expressed doubt over the intentions of Turkish authorities linking the incident to the even stricter measures that follow last month’s failed coup attempt.

Thanks to Samsung and Verizon 5G is about to all get up

first_img We tested Verizon’s new 5G network Ready or not, 5G data is at your doorstep. Samsung and Verizon made that fact crystal clear last week. First, Verizon lit up its 5G network, claiming it to be the world’s first. Two days later, the largest phone maker on the planet began selling the Galaxy S10 5G, its first 5G device, in Samsung’s home country of South Korea. These two events prove that 5G is off to a very real, if slow, start. I tested Verizon’s days-old 5G network in Chicago, one of its two launch cities. Some results were encouraging, but mostly my experience revealed how far Verizon has to go to make its newborn network stable enough to support phones like the Moto Z3 with a 5G Moto Mod, and the Galaxy S10 5G, when that device eventually makes it to the US.Samsung’s exact US launch date is unconfirmed, but the S10 5G is rumored to go on preorder sale April 18, with a May 16 launch. It’ll come exclusively to Verizon before heading to AT&T, Sprint and T-Mobile.  $833 8:24 Speeds will come at a costSamsung and Verizon haven’t announced pricing for the Galaxy S10 5G, but we do know it’ll cost more than the $1,000 Galaxy S10 Plus. My educated guess puts it at $1,100 or $1,200 all in. Verizon’s 5G service also costs $10 more per month on top of your regular data plan. At a time when phone costs are rising, the advent of 5G is one more burden, or barrier, for people on a budget trying to keep up with the times. While we know costs will come down at least some after the new technology settles in, that could still be years away.Verizon and Motorola both point to price as a main reason you might want the Moto Z3 and 5G Mod. With the total cost of ownership under $440 with both elements currently on sale and $830 at full retail price, Motorola’s option may be the only midprice 5G choice until other phonemakers ramp up their own portfolios.Read: Meet the 5G phones headed your wayYou can actually swivel this player on the Galaxy S10 5G to catch a different angle. Andrew Hoyle/CNET Samsung gets another chanceFor Samsung, the Galaxy S10 5G is another opportunity to turn a profit and keep its spot at the top. Samsung’s felt the chill of a slowing smartphone market, expecting revenue far below this same time last year, despite strong Galaxy S10 Plus preorders. It could be that customers are waiting for 5G and foldable phones to debut before making the decision to upgrade to a “flat” 4G phone. On that note, Samsung’s foldable Galaxy Fold arrives April 26 for 4G networks, with a 5G variation coming out sometime after.That said, CNET doesn’t recommend rushing out to buy a first-wave 5G phone. Verizon’s shaky 5G start is one deterrent. Higher prices for both the phone and 5G data service are another. But there’s one more good reason to wait, too, and that’s a new chip that can make 5G phones slimmer and more efficient. Those devices will be ready by the end of the year.So while 5G is ready for you, you might not quite be ready for it.  Abt Electronics Phones I did get a chance to go hands-on with the Galaxy S10 5G in February. A little larger than the Galaxy S10 Plus — it’s a kind of an S10 Plus Plus — the S10 5G has a 6.7-inch screen, a total of six cameras and Qualcomm’s Snapdragon 855 chipset. It’s absolutely a premium phone, though we’ll need to see how some of its features, like its depth-sensing front and rear cameras, will work on the phone day to day. I did get an early demo of portrait video, which gives the background a blurred Bokeh effect, but it did need a little work to keep a moving subject separated from the background. Samsung also showed off a live demo of manipulating players in a baseball game being streamed over 5G. You could actually rotate them to take a look. That’s not something a 4G phone can do.Read: Motorola defends Mod attachment as the best 5G platform.

It’ll come exclusively to Verizon before heading to AT&T, Sprint and T-Mobile. It’s possible that Samsung is deliberately holding back the S10 5G launch until Verizon’s new 5G network becomes a little more stable, and perhaps more widespread. Right now it’s available only in Chicago and Minneapolis (and in mere downtown hotspots at that), but Verizon says its 5G service will come to 30 cities by the end of 2019.  Verizon declined to comment and Samsung didn’t respond to a request for comment on my theory.Read also: Verizon gets sassy over 5G data speeds, then smack-talks AT&T and T-Mobile $999 5:18 Galaxy S10 5G camera, 5G demo at MWC 2019 CNET may get a commission from retail offers.

OnePlus TV key features confirmed 55inch QLED display Dolby Vision more

first_img OnePlus 6T Thunder Purple Review: Fashionable and classy Close OnePlus is building hype for its upcoming product, OnePlus TV, in the best possible way by offering a sneak peek into what’s coming. After revealing the name and logo of its latest product and confirming that India will be the first market to get OnePlus TV, the Chinese smartphone maker has ousted another key feature about the upcoming television.Rumours about OnePlus TV have been buzzing on the internet, but OnePlus just confirmed that its smart TV will have a 55-inch QLED display. This is more than just a sneak peek and a crucial detail about the TV itself. This also clears any rumours about the TV offering an OLED panel, instead, it’s getting a 4K quantum dot or QLED display, which is relatively cheaper than the former option. This suggests the OnePlus TV could be priced aggressively in the market.But Gadgets 360 recently reported that OnePlus CEO Pete Lau said the OnePlus TV would be positioned in the premium segment and compete against the offerings from Samsung and Sony rather than Xiaomi’s Mi TV. So there’s some room for mystery until the launch in this particular space. OnePlus TV launch in India confirmedOnePlus forumOnePlus might have confirmed that it will offer its TV in the 55-inch screen size, rumours have indicated that there could be more sizes ranging from 43 inches to 75 inches. There’s no way of knowing if this particular rumour is accurate as OnePlus did not give any hints in its brief Twitter post on Thursday. OnePlus TV screen size confirmedOnePlus/TwitterIn a separate tweet, OnePlus also confirmed that its OnePlus TV will come with Dolby Vision. At the pace which OnePlus is revealing key features of its new TV, it’s not far before we learn more about the new product in OnePlus portfolio.Be a part of the picture and live every moment with @DolbyIn Vision on the OnePlus TV ?Get notified –— OnePlus India (@OnePlus_IN) August 23, 2019 Further details about the OnePlus TV are scarce at the moment, but it is expected to run a custom version of Android TV, which OnePlus is expecting to be a huge USP. “One more key selling point that I want to highlight is that we are really optimising the Android TV system which I don’t see a lot of brands in the Indian market [doing]. Because of our great partnership with Google, not only do we use their Android TV system but we also optimise it very deeply,” Lau was quoted as saying.Other features expected in the OnePlus TV include an HDR panel, AI Assistant and a Bluetooth remote. The official launch of the OnePlus TV is taking place next month, so there’s not a lot of time left for us to keep guessing.Update: Added information about OnePlus TV getting Dolby Vision.center_img IBTimes VideoRelated VideosMore videos Play VideoPauseMute0:01/0:59Loaded: 0%0:01Progress: 0%Stream TypeLIVE-0:58?Playback Rate1xChaptersChaptersDescriptionsdescriptions off, selectedSubtitlessubtitles settings, opens subtitles settings dialogsubtitles off, selectedAudio Trackdefault, selectedFullscreenThis is a modal window.Beginning of dialog window.

We Are Almost Out of Options for Climate Change

first_img Alright, seriously, we can stop now. I know none of us want to, none of us think we can, but we absolutely have got to stop cranking out so many greenhouse gasses. Yes, it’s critical. Silly, ill-conceived op-eds aside, we also know that this is going to be really, really bad. It’s not just the polar bears; it’s everything. But we’ve been so slow to act that unless we totally changed course yesterday, we are headed for absolute disaster. Then again… maybe not. If all else fails, we could always terraform Earth. Scientists have been kicking around the idea for a while, but it was often pushed aside as being far too risky (and yeah, you bet your fucking ass it is). Now, as we continue our beeline towards doom, researchers are starting to reconsider that. To be clear, no one is planning on doing anything just yet. But there is pressure to at least research geoengineering. Last month, no less than Harvard started a program to bring experts together and explore plans that could stop climate change. While there are lots of ways we could theoretically do this, like by doping the oceans to trigger algal blooms, most methods are… again… really freaking risky. It’s important to stress that. Global warming could be bad, but we don’t really know what could happen if we totally break Earth because of an accident. And the fact that scientists are even considering this plan should sear into our collective consciousness how dire our situation is. That miniature diatribe aside, the Solar Geoengineering Research program centers on plans to disperse or block solar rays by chemically altering the composition of the stratosphere. Think controlled nuclear winter. And yeah… that is pants-shittingly terrifying, but climate change could very well be worse (I cannot hammer this point home enough).Frank Keustch, an atmospheric scientist at Harvard, told Gizmodo, “The research we want to do is better quantify the risks of static engineering… We want to choose knowledge over ignorance.”And he’s got a good point. We should really know what all our options are for unfucking this situation. I mean… it’s wrecked, but we need to know exactly how wrecked. It’d also help to know whether the plan would even work at all. Hypothetically, yeah, we could probably dump a bunch of crap into our atmosphere and block some sunlight, but we might find that it’s impossible to make however much of whatever chemical we’d need.This think-tank has big-backing, too. Mega-financiers like Bill Gates have funneled cash into the project. Harvard will be doing super small scale field tests soon, testing whether the principle at least works in the real world. Then we can start looking at what the risks are and what we’d have to do to pull this off and if it’s worth it. Already we know there will be at least a few hurdles. Sulfate particles, like the ones the program will be studying, are known to destroy ozone. In trying to stop one form of radiation, we could fry ourselves with another.“The idea of trying to do something like that is really, quite terrifying,” Keustch said.There have been other proposals, mass-scale carbon sequestration, for example. Not to mention, illegal experiments with algal blooms. The latter hoped to lock carbon dioxide on the sea floor — essentially putting the fossil fuels back into the ground. But the fact that we are even talking about this means we need to get on this ball. No, the planet isn’t screwed if sea levels rise — WE ARE SCREWED. More than a billion people will be displaced, many of us will be hit with far more severe storms and natural disasters. Food will become more expensive. This is so fucking certain that even the US Military has done strategic analyses on the threats to national security (a global state of constant war) that climate change will bring. Lucasfilm/DisneyThere are critical moral issues on all sides, but the science is set. The planet is warming. We have to intervene now. There is no other sane option. You must exercise every form of political power you wield to help leverage major action. And there’s absolutely no reason not to. Some may say it will destroy business or innovation, but bankers and financial analysts have repeatedly said that the global economy stands to hemorrhage tens of trillions of dollars every year if we do not act.There is absolutely no stance that permits inaction. We, as a species, must get this shit under control or billions of us will likely die. “In isolation, solar geoengineering is terrifying,” Gernot Wagner, executive director of the project, said. “You might even describe it as nuts. The question is, nuts compared to what? Or terrifying compared to what? The world we’re heading toward, with more or less unmitigated climate change, is that itself terrifying?

Operating quantum memory at room temperature

first_img Explore further Citation: Operating quantum memory at room temperature (2008, August 25) retrieved 18 August 2019 from Quantum dots, along with quantum wires, have been attracting notice over the past decade as possible building blocks of quantum information processing. Indium arsenide quantum dots (InAs) can be used for memory operations in devices made from gallium arsenide and aluminum gallium arsenide (known as GaAs/AlGaAs devices). The problem is that at room temperature – the experiments are usually done at lower temperatures, the memory operation of these devices suffers, unless there are multiple quantum dot layers. Digitally programmable perovskite nanowire-block copolymer compositescenter_img That is changing now, thanks work done by a team of scientists at Würzburg University in Germany. “Memory operated at room temperature, and with only a single layer quantum dot layer, is important because it can be used in every day life,” Lukas Worschech, a member of the team at Würzburg tells The work done by the team, which includes Müller, Heinrich, Höfling and Forchel, appears in Applied Physics Letters: “Room temperature memory operation of a single InAs quantum dot layer in a GaAs/AlGaAs heterostructure.”For quantum information processing, some sort of memory operation is necessary. One of the ways of realizing a memory device is to use quantum dots coupled to a transport channel. Memory (nonvolatile – such as flash memory) is realized when the charge state of the quantum dots control the system’s threshold. A floating gate is used to manage the threshold voltage. In GaAs/AlGaAs devices, the charge storage that is needed can be induced optically as well as electrically, which increases their usefulness and compatibility with different electronic and optoelectronic devices.“Until now, though,” Worschech explains, “low temperatures were needed with single layer quantum dot. Our idea was to create a system that could work under increased temperatures. Otherwise, you always have to put your samples in cryostats, and use long wirings. This makes it harder to extract all the information you want.” The Würzburg team suggests that with the InAs quantum dot functioning as a floating gate, the memory could be operated at room temperature. “From this structure, field emission is reduced drastically and we are able to observe the memory effect at room temperature.”One of the more interesting things about this set-up is that the InAs quantum dot is actually self-assembling. “The trick here is that the material does not match directly to the gallium arsenide. You do not have to structure them.” However, it can be difficult to control where these InAs quantum dots end up. “They are randomly distributed,” Worschech says, “you cannot say in a lateral field where they are placed.”Other scientists, though, have been working on this issue. “Through etching – making small holes at pre-defined sites – it turns out that indium arsenide growth can be controlled laterally,” Worschech points out. “Others have been working on this, and we would like to see our method combined with this lateral positioning that is being studied.”“This field of quantum dots is being intensely studied right now,” Worschech continues, “for use in quantum computers and sensors. Quantum cryptography is another field that would benefit from this work. It is also interesting for optical electronics. Our work may sever as an inter-connect for different applications.” Copyright 2007 All rights reserved.

Antibody may help old people regain muscle power

first_imgA newly created antibody could treat the decline in muscle mass and power associated with ageing, show results of a phase-two trial by an international research team.The myostatin antibody treatment improved muscle power in the elderly, as indicated by improvements in the ability to climb stairs, walk briskly and rise repetitively from a chair, the findings showed.“Myostatin is a natural protein produced within the body that inhibits muscle growth,” said one of the researchers Stuart Warden from Indiana University-Purdue University Indianapolis, US.  Also Read – ‘Playing Jojo was emotionally exhausting’“It has been hypothesised for some time that inhibition of myostatin may allow muscle to grow, resulting in improved muscle mass and physical performance. The current study confirms these beliefs,” Warden said. In the study, injections of a myostatin antibody, made by US-based Eli Lilly and Co, over a 24-week period resulted in an increase in lean (muscle) mass and improved performance on tasks requiring muscle power in patients older than 75 with low muscle strength, low muscle performance and a history of falling.  Also Read – Leslie doing new comedy special with Netflix“This is the first study to show that myostatin antibody treatment improves performance on activities requiring muscle power,” Warden said. “Muscle power’ refers to the ability to generate muscle force quickly. During ageing, it is lost more rapidly than muscle strength, contributing to disability, falls, reduced quality of life and, in some instances, death,” Warden explained.He said “the current study provides proof-of-concept evidence to proceed to the larger studies that are required to demonstrate whether myostatin antibody treatment improves quality of life and reduces falls and their consequences during ageing”.  “This is an important and exciting first step,” Warden noted in an official statement.last_img read more

Perfect Aryan baby of Nazi propaganda was actually Jewish

first_imgOne of the most highly debated issues within the Nazi hierarchy was the status of Germans who were partially Jewish. This debate raged within Nazi circles for much of the regime’s existence. At the infamous Wannsee Conference in early 1942, SS General Reinhard Heydrich and others formalized the plans for the Holocaust.The minutes of that meeting show that the question of Germans with Jewish ancestry took up most of the surprisingly brief meeting.For Heydrich, establishing what percentage of Jewish blood was “allowed” may have been personally important: historians since the war have written volumes on Heydrich’s concern that he himself may have had significant Jewish ancestry.Reinhard Heydrich. Photo by Bundesarchiv Bild 146-1969-054-16 / Hoffmann, Heinrich / CC-BY-SAThe question of German/Jewish ancestry reached into all areas of German life. The highest ranking German officer with a recognized Jewish ancestry was Luftwaffe general Erhard Milch, who ended the war in Allied captivity and who spent time in prison for war crimes related to forced labor.A WWI comrade of Luftwaffe chief Hermann Göring, Milch’s “Jewishness” was a well-known “secret.” In 1935, Göring, then at the height of his political power, proclaimed “I decide who is a Jew.”Hermann Göring. Photo by Bundesarchiv, Bild 102-13805 CC-BY-SA 3.0In the last few years, one of the most interesting stories involving the question of “Jewishness” became public, though during the war years it was a closely guarded secret, known to only three people.In the U.S.A. one of the most iconic images is that of the “Gerber Baby Food Baby” (no, it was not actor Humphrey Bogart, though he had “won” a contest for another baby food company as an infant). The cute image has played a role in the sale of hundreds of millions of jars and packages of baby food.Top 10 Surviving Buildings Built By The Nazis During Their Time In PowerThe Nazi’s had their own equivalent of the Gerber baby. In 1935, Propaganda Minister Josef Goebbels began a search for the “perfect” Aryan baby and sponsored a contest to find her/him.This child would go on to grace everything from newspapers to magazines to sheet music, as well as kitsch of all kinds, like plates and cups.Gerber oatmeal. Photo by: Nate Steiner – Flickr: CC BY 2.0The winner of the contest was a beautiful light-haired baby named Hessy Levinson. Yes, Levinson. Goebbels perfect “Aryan” baby was 100% Jewish. Hessy’s mother, Pauline, had taken the baby to a local photographer for a family photo. Unbeknownst to Pauline, the man who took Hessy’s picture, well-known Berlin photographer Hans Ballin, had entered Hessy’s image in Goebbels’ contest as a lark – a quite dangerous one.Front cover photograph of Hessy Levinsons, the winner of the most beautiful Aryan baby contest, whose promoters never discovered her Jewish ancestry, published on the cover of a Nazi magazine.Ballin was an anti-Nazi who had entered the child the contest for personal reasons – he wanted to show (even if just to himself) that the Nazis’ ideas were ludicrous at best.Surprisingly, Hessy’s image won. Hessy’s mother, seeing the child on the cover of the Nazi family magazine Sonne ins Haus (“The Sunlight of the Home”), went to Ballin’s studio in a panic. If the Nazi’s found out that Hessy was Jewish, the entire family would likely suffer.Though this took place in the years before Kristallnacht and the Holocaust, it was not unheard of for Jewish families to be punished or disappear, especially if they had made the regime look foolish.Ballin told Pauline of his scheme, and assured her that he would not reveal the child’s identity. As surety, Hessy began a life lived entirely indoors as to avoid being recognized. The regime never did find out the secret of its perfect “Aryan” baby.At the archives of the Yad Vashem Holocaust memorial museum. Photo by GALI TIBBON/AFP/Getty ImagesIn 1938, three years after the contest and as the regime cranked up its anti-Semitism to new heights, Hessy’s father Jacob was arrested by the Gestapo on false tax evasion charges.Read another story from us: The amazing Operation Mincemeat: Ian Fleming devised a WWII plan to fool the NazisEventually released when his German accountant vouched for him, Jacob took his wife and child and fled to Paris via Latvia. After the fall of France in 1940 and the subsequent anti-Semitic crackdown there, the Levinson’s went into hiding and with the help of the French underground, escaped to Cuba.In 1949, the family moved to the United States, where Hessy married Earl Taft and became a chemistry professor at St. John’s University in New York.

Indias Cabinet rejigged but no place for Rahul

Don Shooter shows health improvement “Definitely, the expectations were that Rahul Gandhi would move on from being a learner and take on more responsibility,” said Aarthi Ramachandran, who has written a book on him.It would have helped Gandhi’s own credibility if he had taken a position in the government or a ministry where he could have shown results, she said.“The party could have gone to the people during the election campaign and said, `This is what Rahul Gandhi has done for the people,’” she said.Congress leaders said Gandhi would concentrate on reviving the party’s fortunes ahead of the national elections instead of being responsible for a narrow Cabinet position.Digvijay Singh, a Congress general secretary, indicated that Gandhi was expected to assume a larger role in the party hierarchy and an announcement on this was expected in the coming week.Calls to Gandhi’s office were not answered.

Singh was widely seen as a regent, keeping the seat warm until Rahul Gandhi _ the son, grandson and great-grandson of Indian prime ministers _ was ready to take his birthright.But Gandhi has displayed little public sign that he is undergoing any sort of apprenticeship that would prepare him for running the country.His allies argued he was rebuilding the party at the grassroots level and has taken a lead in the Congress’ campaigns in state elections in Uttar Pradesh and in Bihar in recent years. The party performed poorly in both elections.Gandhi has also positioned himself as the defender of the common people, joining protesters at land rights demonstrations and even getting briefly arrested. But in moments of crisis, he has rarely taken the lead, preferring to defer to Singh or his mother. His forceful speech against corruption in Parliament last year _ during a major anti-graft protest against the government _ was notable for its rarity.Political analysts say that Gandhi’s refusal to take a Cabinet position, and be held accountable for the workings of a government ministry, could prove to be a handicap when the time comes to face the electorate. Former Law Minister Salman Khurshid, who was named the new foreign minister, is 20 years younger than his predecessor, and most of the other ministers sworn in Sunday are in their 50s or early 60s. In Indian politics, that is considered to be a relative youth movement. Singh said the shuffle was the last major Cabinet shake-up expected before the next national election.But even in promoting some of the younger Congress lawmakers, the party leadership is cautious that they know their place.“It’s an unspoken rule in the Congress that nobody can, or will be allowed to outshine Rahul Gandhi among the younger lot,” Ramachandran said.Other analysts say working among the rural poor, as Gandhi has been doing for the past few years, will give him far greater insight than holding a ministerial job.“At this point, the need to repair the Congress’ image is a greater priority because of the various scams and allegations leveled against the party,” said Vinod Sharma, a political analyst with the Hindustan Times newspaper.(Copyright 2012 The Associated Press.

Housing Stands Firm Despite Economic Volatility

first_img March 29, 2016 561 Views Existing-Home Sales Home Prices Inventory Ten-X 2016-03-29 Staff Writer Global market turmoil and weak GDP growth have not restrained home sales in the housing market that remain at high yearly levels.Ten-X’s Residential Real Estate Nowcast expects existing-home sales to perform better in March with a 4.8 percent increase from the previous month and a 2.6 percent year-over-year increase. The company projects that sales will fall between seasonally adjusted annual rates of 5.15 and 5.55 million, with a targeted number of 5.32 million.“Though U.S. home sales have seen significant volatility in recent months due to external factors, sales remain at a high overall level,” said Peter Muoio, Ten-X Chief Economist. “The housing market stands on solid ground despite global economic volatility and weaker U.S. GDP growth, with the firmer labor market and enhanced household budgets from low oil providing a boost to consumer confidence.”Existing-home sales have suffered in recent months due to the continuous imbalance of extremely low inventory levels and rapid home price appreciation, and industry experts believe that this trend will not end anytime soon.Rick Sharga, Ten-X’s EVP, does not believe that existing-home sales will normalize anytime soon with inventory shortages prevalent in the market.“Both January and February home sales were slightly better than a year ago, and our nowcast predicts that March will continue that trend,” he said. “But inventory levels remain low, and home price appreciation continues to outpace wage growth. These factors suggest that, even with mortgage rates near their historic lows, a return to more ‘normal’ levels of home sales is still off in the distance.”The National Association of Realtors (NAR) reported that existing-home sales fell in February 2016 after reaching the highest annual rate in six months last month. The report found that existing-home sales decreased 7.1 percent to a seasonally adjusted annual rate of 5.08 million in February from 5.47 million in January. However, the report noted that despite last month’s large decline, sales remain 2.2 percent higher than a year ago.The existing-home sales report from NAR for January 2016, showed that lenders are well on the path to recovery from TRID delays.  The report found that existing-home sales increased 0.4 percent to a seasonally adjusted annual rate of 5.47 million in January from a downwardly revised 5.45 million in December. Existing sales are now 11.0 percent higher than a year ago, the highest annual rate in six months and the largest year-over-year gain since 16.3 percent July 2013.”The overall demand for buying is still solid entering the busy spring season, but home prices and rents outpacing wages and anxiety about the health of the economy are holding back a segment of would-be buyers,” said Lawrence Yun, NAR Chief Economist.The decline in existing-home sales in February did not slow down home prices appreciation. According to the NAR, the median existing-home price in February was $210,800, up 4.4 percent from last February’s median price of $201,900. This marks the 48th consecutive month of year-over-year gains. Home prices fell within Ten-X’s range of $209,607 to $231,671 predicted in last month’s nowcast. Now, Ten-X expects that sales prices for existing homes will fall between $209,207 and $231,229 for March with a targeted price of $220,218, representing 4.5 percent month-over-month and year-over-year gains. in Daily Dose, Featured, News, Originationcenter_img Housing Stands Firm Despite Economic Volatility Sharelast_img read more
