More inspections tougher pollution penalties for oil tanker traffic

VANCOUVER — The federal government announced changes Monday to improve oil tanker safety off Canadian coasts, and shore up support for several controversial projects that would increase oil exports from British Columbia.The changes include some new measures — administrative penalties for polluters and mandatory marine response plans for oil terminal operators — and increased frequency for measures already in place, such as annual inspections for all tankers and offshore aerial surveillance.They also include a review by a panel of experts and a promise of future improvements, which was dismissed as “greenwashing” by the Council of Canadians, which opposes proposed pipeline projects that would deliver oil from Alberta to the B.C. coast for shipping overseas.“Our government listens to the people … What we’re announcing today is a result of our listening to British Columbians and responding to their concerns,” Natural Resources Minister Joe Oliver said at a news conference on the deck of Port of Metro Vancouver, against a backdrop of tankers and shipping vessels in Burrard Inlet.Without naming any specific project, Oliver reiterated that if Canada is to benefit from its resource potential, products must reach Asia and the rest of the world.“We have an opportunity to ensure that our products, particularly oil and liquefied natural gas, reach world markets and command world prices,” Oliver said. “Our government knows that to be an energy superpower, we need a world-class safety system for our waters.”In Ottawa, the Conservatives tabled legislation making it mandatory for the operators of oil handling facilities to submit spill response plans to the government, and added additional monetary penalties for marine polluters.Oliver named an expert panel on tanker safety to review the current regime. A report on regulations south of the 60th parallel is due this fall, and a report on Arctic shipping a year later.The minister said the government will also review the oil pollution liability regime now in place, to determine if $1.3 billion currently available in various funds is sufficient to ensure Canadian taxpayers don’t end up footing the bill for a spill.Ottawa will also conduct scientific research into the behaviour of diluted bitumen, the molasses-like oil produced in the oil sands that pipeline opponents argue sinks to the floor of the ocean and cannot be cleaned up.And the federal government will designate Kitimat — the tanker port terminus of the Northern Gateway project — as a public port, offering better traffic control and vessel safety. Other ports may also be brought under the control of a port authority, reversing a trend by consecutive governments toward divesting regional ports.The proposed Northern Gateway pipeline and tanker port would see an increase of about 250 tankers a year into Kitimat. The proposed doubling of Kinder Morgan’s existing TransMountain pipeline would increase vessel traffic to Port Metro Vancouver by about 400 annually.Several pipeline opponents immediately dismissed the changes.“The Harper government is trying to find a way to ignore public opposition to the Northern Gateway pipeline while making it look like they’re listening, using ’world-class’ greenwashing,” Maryam Adrangi, of the Council of Canadians, said in an email.Darcy Dobell, vice-president of the World Wildlife Fund Canada’s Pacific region, said there are no regulations that would change her mind on the Northern Gateway project.“It doesn’t address our fundamental concern. Our concern has never been about the regulations needing tightening. Our concern is that the Great Bear Rainforest is no place for oil pipelines or oil tankers, at all,” she said.Darryl Anderson, whose Wave Point Consulting has studied marine safety worldwide, said the changes are a start but more remains to be done.“This addresses some of the issues,” Anderson said. “It’s got to be backed up with resources.”Officials said $120 million has been earmarked over the next five years for the changes. But critics point out the Canadian Coast Guard and ocean research have been cut by more than that in recent budgets.“First, the Conservatives tried to ram through the Northern Gateway project without listening to British Columbians,” said Peter Julian, the federal NDP’s natural resources critic. “Now they are trying to back-paddle with a lacklustre spill plan that doesn’t even begin to address the Conservative cuts to spill prevention.”The B.C. government has said a “world-class” oil spill response plan is one of five conditions that will have to be in place before the province will support the Northern Gateway, along with First Nations involvement and a “fair share” of revenues.Environment Minister Terry Lake, who recently held his own roundtable on marine oil spill safety, was not immediately available to comment. read more

Wednesdays Toronto stock market posted gains on positive data from US economy

TORONTO – On Wednesday, the Toronto stock market closed higher after reports of a shrinking trade deficit and unofficial job gains in the United States as well as signs of optimism in the European Union.The S&P/TSX composite index was up 49.94 points at 15,154.68, with gains in seven of the index’s 10 subsectors.Two positive indicators south of the border buoyed U.S. markets.Payroll processor ADP said that the U.S. economy added 201,000 jobs in May, up from 165,000 in the previous month.The U.S. trade deficit, considered a drag on economic growth in the first three months of the year, shrank by 19 per cent in April.The Dow Jones industrial average rose 64.33 points to 18,076.27, the Nasdaq index rose 22.71 points to 5,099.23, and the S&P 500 advanced 4.47 points to 2,114.07.Canada’s trade deficit narrowed to $3 billion in April, much larger than the $2.1 billion analysts surveyed by Thomson Reuters had predicted but an improvement from the previous month’s record high.The loonie ended the day trading at 80.30 cents US, down 0.29 of a U.S. cent.Earlier Wednesday, the European Central Bank raised its 2015 inflation forecast from flat growth to 0.3 per cent.“People are more optimistic about Europe and the prospect that the U.S. isn’t going to be doing all the heavy lifting on its own,” said Norman Rashkowan, senior partner at Sage Road Advisers. “That’s helpful for Canada because our economy is sensitive to global growth.”The spectre of European deflation was worrying global markets, he said, but the threat seems to be receding as Spain, Italy, France, and others posted positive first-quarter GDP growth.On the commodity markets, the July crude contract was down $1.62 to US$59.64 a barrel.Rashkowan said oil seems to be stuck in a trading range between $50 and $60 a barrel as worldwide production remains high and the OPEC oil cartel shows no sign of slowing the pace of extraction.“People are appreciating that perhaps it’s going to take longer to get oil prices rising in a sustained fashion,” Rashkowan said. “Instead, you’re probably looking at an environment where they’re going to be sort of moving sideways.”The August gold contract fell $9.50 to US$1,184.90 an ounce. Rashkowan said gold too appeared to be moving sideways around a value of $1,200 as investors consider the prospects for growth in the American economy.The market seemed to be ignoring Greece’s Friday deadline for a 300 million euro debt payment, Rashkowan said, with traders betting that a last-minute deal will be reached to avoid bankruptcy or the country’s exit from the euro currency.Note to readers: This is a corrected story.

Budget supermarket Lidl launches Oxford University scholarship for students to study German

Want the best of The Telegraph direct to your email and WhatsApp? Sign up to our free twice-daily  Front Page newsletter and new  audio briefings. Lidl has launched a new scholarship for Oxford University students to study German. The budget supermarket chain announced plans to fund one graduate who enrolls on a masters degree in Modern German and sponsor competitions with cash prizes of up to £500 for undergraduates from next year.It comes as education experts warned of declining numbers of students learning the language in schools, which a British Council adviser suggested was partly because pupils still associate Germany with war.Professor Ian Watson, chair of the faculty of medieval and modern languages, said: “We are delighted that, at a time when the teaching of modern languages in the UK is facing considerable challenges, a major German company in the shape of Lidl has stepped forward to offer its support.“The package of support that Lidl is so generously donating will allow us to raise the profile of the subject of German at Oxford at all stages of the undergraduate degree as well as for postgraduate study.”This year, just over 3,000 students sat German A-level exams, which is nearly half as many as in 2010. While a quarter of state schools that offered German as a subject after GCSE in the last three years no longer do so.Education experts have called for urgent action to halt the decline, pointing to Britain’s post-Brexit relationship with Germany as an example of the langauge’s potential future importance.The British Council’s school’s adviser Vicky Gough suggested students’ apparent waning interest in German stemmed from the choice to speak other “exotic” languages and from learning about the First and Second World Wars.She said: “Less and less people are taking German up and that is a big issue.”The perception of German is that it is harder, that it is less useful and it is something for the elite.  In many schools it’s only an option for the top set.”Spanish is seen as far more cool, it’s known as the ‘Despacito effect’ all the celebrities are using it.”I have asked students what languages they want to study, many of them say Spanish because there are so many places where you can use it or Chinese because they think it’s exotic. But the only thing they know about Germany is the war.”Overall, the number of students learning modern languages is down by 15 per cent at the end of the last academic year, compared to 2010.But German is recognised as performing worse than other subjects. Last year saw 7,600 entries for A-Level Spanish, more than double the numbers for German.  The move by Lidl to support German language students has been welcomed by education experts.Suzanne O’Farrell, curriculum and assessment specialist at the Association of School and College Leaders, said: “German is perhaps not as high profile as French and Spanish, but German is an important language economically and there is a real danger that if something is not done its decline could become a self fulfilling prophecy.  “There needs to be some urgent action taken or promotion like the Lidl scholarship, to turn the tide.”German speakers are going to be so few and far between it could make them very employable. “If we cut that off we are going to do ourselves some damage.  As a trading partner Germany are just as important as they always.”Lidl’s UK CEO Christian Härtnagel said: “As a British supermarket with roots in Germany, we saw this opportunity as a great fit and are incredibly proud to be working with Oxford to support both undergrad and graduate students of German.” read more

Australia gets competitive edge from diversity

first_img Facebook Twitter: @NeosKosmos Instagram The Parliamentary Secretary to the Minister for Social Services, Senator Concetta Fierravanti-Wells, says Australia’s cultural diversity is good for business.Speaking at the Ethnic Communities Council (ECC) of NSW’s 40th anniversary dinner last week, Senator Fierravanti-Wells said in an increasingly globalised economy, diversity was an advantage.“Our diversity means Australia can be more productive, invent new ways of doing business with the world, create new opportunities and boost our trade and investment enterprises,” she said.“It means we can confidently shake hands with far more of the world and its peoples.“Migration can, and has, delivered social and economic strength, prosperity and unity and continues to contribute to a thriving and cohesive economy.Senator Fierravanti-Wells – who has special responsibility for Multicultural Affairs and Settlement Services – said Australia’s successful social cohesiveness did not happen by chance.“It is a big task but Government cannot do it alone and nor can civil society,” she said. “We need well connected, expert partners in the community such as the Ethnic Communities Council of NSW.”The senator said that more than 7.5 million migrants have arrived in Australia since the end of WWII, including some 800,000 under humanitarian programs, and that “helping them settle into their new country requires the active support from all Australians.” Speaking of the ECC, she said the organisation had played a part in “steadfastly building up our national competitive advantage. This national effort helps bring us closer together.” last_img read more

Chase Andersen walked to load the bases again.  Kayla Burrell singled scoring Crawford and Tori Gemellaro (running for Moran).Bella Kieran was called out at the plate in a controversial call negating a big scoring chance for Wilmington in the sixth.In the seventh, Kayla Bourrell reached on an error and immediately stole second.  She scored on a defensive error by the Spy Ponders’ right fielder. Unfortunately, the Wildcats had runners on first and second but could not get the timely hit they desperately needed.The Wildcats also made some errors on routine during the day.  There was a lack of communication on some plays which resulted in the ball just dropping between the players.“The plate umpire had a small strike zone today,” said Coach Audrey Cabral. “Both pitchers threw a lot of  pitches especially in the first inning… Arlington was just more patient at the plate today.”Like Wilmington Apple on Facebook.

Lawmakers Weigh Exempting Alaska From Daylight Saving Time

first_imgA state Senate committee has advanced a bill that would exempt Alaska from daylight saving time.Download AudioThe bill, from Sen. Anna MacKinnon, moved from the Senate State Affairs Committee on Tuesday.It would exempt Alaska from the annual time change beginning in 2017. That means Alaska would be five hours behind the East Coast, instead of four hours behind, from about March to November.MacKinnon told the committee that there are health impacts associated with changing the clocks each spring and fall, and she wants to help Alaskans avoid those. Those include increased rates of heart attacks, suicide and traffic accidents in the spring, she said.Under the Uniform Time Act, the state has the authority to exempt itself from daylight saving time, but not to change time zones entirely.last_img read more

Filipino Muslims set to approve autonomy law

first_imgMoro Islamic Liberation Front (MILF) members secure Camp Darapanan in Sultan Kudarat, Maguindanao on the southern island of Mindanao on 29 July 2018. Nearly 100,000 members of the Philippines` largest Muslim rebel group gathered on 29 July to discuss a landmark law granting them autonomy, expressing hope it would make their `dream of peace` a reality. — AFPLeaders of the Philippines’ mainstream separatist group on Sunday urged Muslims in the country’s south to support a new autonomy law designed to tackle extremism and defuse a half-century of conflict in a referendum later this year.The Moro Islamic Liberation Front (MILF), which signed a peace deal with the government four years ago, gathered tens of thousands of supporters from all over the southern province of Mindanao to its base to begin a massive campaign for the law’s approval.President Rodrigo Duterte last signed the new autonomy legislation, called Bangsamoro Organic Law, allowing self-rule for Muslims in 2022, hoping to end a conflict that has killed more than 120,000 people and displaced 2 million.“Our real journey toward self-determination is just starting,” Mohagher Iqbal, the rebel group’s chief negotiator, told Reuters by telephone, saying there are still challenges ahead that could stop the implementation of the law.Speaking earlier to thousands of supporters, including women and children, he asked them to vote for the approval of the law expanding the territories covered by the Muslim autonomous area in the south, although he warned of some potential obstacles.“We still don’t know if there are groups or individuals who will question the new autonomy law before the Supreme Court,” he told a cheering crowd in a speech livestreamed on social media. Supporters chanted “Allahu Akbar” and “Yes to BOL” in the rebel camp in the middle of coconut and banana groves.In 2008, close to a million people were displaced in central Mindanao region when violence erupted after the Supreme Court canceled a deal on ancestral domain with the MILF. A small but more radical splinter rebel group has since emerged, and has aligned with pro-Islamic State militant forces.MILF leaders said they are trying to avoid a similar episode that could lead to extremist groups taking hold in the south. The rebel group is expected to dominate the 80-member Bangsamoro transition government that will be formed after the referendum.The Bangsamoro area includes part of the Philippines’ second-largest island of Mindanao, and a chain of dozens of small islands to the west notorious for piracy and banditry.An estimated five million Muslims live in the region, which has the predominantly Catholic nation’s lowest levels of employment, income, education and economic development.The United Nations, European Union, United States and Japan welcomed the passing of the new autonomy law, hoping for an end to violence and a start to the region’s economic reconstruction.last_img

Pixars CoFounders Heard No 45 Times Before Steve Jobs Said Yes

first_img Hear from Polar Explorers, ultra marathoners, authors, artists and a range of other unique personalities to better understand the traits that make excellence possible. With its stunning visuals and storytelling to boot, Disney’s Pixar has been captivating global audiences for decades, helping to transform the way people look at animated feature films. Best known for its use of computer-generated imagery (CGI), Pixar has 17 animated feature films on its record, 12 of which made the list of the 50 highest-grossing animated films of all time. (Disney has even released a film showing that all the Pixar films are connected.)Pixar knows a thing or two about how to tell a story and now anyone can learn how to capture people’s imagination with a scintillating story. In an initiative called “Pixar in a Box,” which is sponsored by Disney, Pixar has teamed up with the Khan Academy to offer free online classes to anyone with an internet connection and a passion for storytelling.Related: What Tech Entrepreneurs Can Learn From the Startup That Beat GoogleOver the years, Pixar has given audiences the likes of the Toy Story trilogy, Monsters, Inc., Finding Nemo, The Incredibles, Ratatouille and Finding Dory. If its back catalogue isn’t impressive enough, Pixar has now given its fans what is arguably its most sacred creation of all — the secret of how to tell tales that make people tick.I interviewed Alvy Ray Smith, one of the company’s co-founders, and he told me about learning animation from a $1.50 “how-to” book, the role that “Moore’s Law” played in guiding him to success with Pixar, his three golden rules of recruitment and working with the late Steve Jobs.In addition to pursuing computer graphics at the New York Institute of Technology (NYIT), you taught yourself the basics of animation using a $1.50 “how-to” book written by the late Preston Blair, a character animator best known for his work at Disney and Metro-Goldwyn-Mayer (MGM). Where did you get your business savvy from?Alvy Ray Smith: My co-founder, Edwin Catmull, and I were the academic type. We were computer nerds with PhDs and learned business by the seat of our pants. When George Lucas — one of our patrons — lost half his fortune in a divorce, we were forced to start a company to preserve our group. Our first move was to buy four “how-to-start-a-business” books. I also called a former colleague at NYIT, Jim Clark, founder of Silicon Graphics (and later, Netscape) and asked him how to do business. He said, “It’s not hard, Alvy. It’ll take you about a year to learn the basics.” That was the extent of our “formal” training. Then, we went through an intense learning process made necessary by financing Pixar. Thirty-five venture capitalists and 10 large corporations turned us down, but we got lots of training presenting the company and “talking the talk.”Related: High-Tech Startups Need to Ditch the ‘Engineers Rule’ MentalityDescribe the impact that Gordon E. Moore — the founder of Intel — had on your business philosophy.In my own words, “Moore’s Law” says, “Everything good about computers gets better by a factor of 10 every five years.” So, in 2015, computers were 10 billion times better than they were in 1965. Catmull and I used this “Law” at several crucial points, including the formation of Pixar. In the final year at Lucasfilm, I ran the numbers for a contract with a Japanese company ready to produce the first digital movie. To my horror, I discovered that computers hadn’t arrived yet — by a factor of 10. I had to back out of the deal. Hence, we knew that Pixar couldn’t make movies for another five years. At the end of those five fraught years — right on Moore’s Law schedule — Disney stepped forward to finance Toy Story, the first digital movie.What positives did you take away from your association with the late Steve Jobs, who was the main investor in Pixar?Jobs financed us when 45 other organizations had said “no.” He didn’t create or run Pixar, but he did capitalize us as a manufacturing company for those first five years. We ran out of money several times, and Jobs would always write us another check in exchange for equity. His greatest business move was to take Pixar public on the strength of great critical previews of Toy Story.Related: 3 Mistakes (Nearly) Every Tech Startup Makes — and How to Avoid ThemWhat business principles did you apply when you co-founded Pixar that could be applied by a founder of a startup today?When hiring people, live by three rules — hire smarter than yourself, hire the best and give them their space. It’s like being a good parent. You can’t produce creativity, but you can identify it, nourish it and let it grow. Catmull and I aren’t good entrepreneurial models because we failed for five years, staying alive only because of one of our patrons, Steve Jobs. We weren’t successful until we were executing a business that we had truly prepared for, which was making animated movies. What we did have going for us was a clear and clean vision — that is, to make the first digital movie. It was not to make a financially successful company.

May 25, 2018 — Konica Minolta Healthcare Americas Inc. announced that two clinical studies utilizing the company’s Dynamic Digital Radiography (DDR) X-ray technology were presented at the American Thoracic Society (ATS) 2018 Annual Meeting, May 18-23 in San Diego. Dynamic Digital Radiography, currently under development, is a new modality that utilizes conventional X-ray images and Konica Minolta’s proprietary software platform to create X-ray in Motion.X-ray in Motion of the chest provides a visual display of the dynamic interactions of lung, muscle, bone, heart and nerve, not captured by either a conventional static X-ray or the common pulmonary function test (PFT). This allows clinicians to visualize and quantify physiological changes in anatomical structures during the complete respiratory cycle. Previously, respiration could only be radiologically assessed using fluoroscopy, which involves higher levels of radiation exposure. X-ray in Motion may better enable clinicians to evaluate chest and lung function in patients with pulmonary diseases, such as chronic obstructive pulmonary disease (COPD), asthma and lung cancer.At the ATS meeting, the study, A New Technology: The Dynamic Image of a Forced Breath Compared to a Tidal Breath Uncovers a Physiological Phenomenon in COPD, was presented, demonstrating a correlation to the severity of COPD and diaphragm excursion during forced and tidal breathing using DDR. The research concluded that DDR may be a clinically relevant option to assess COPD severity in the acute setting and for patients unable to perform PFTs. This study was conducted by the Division of Pulmonary, Critical Care and Sleep Medicine, Department of Medicine, and Department of Radiology from Mount Sinai, New York, N.Y.The research study, Evaluation of Pulmonary Function Using Dynamic Chest Radiographs: The Change Rate in Lung Area Due to Respiratory Motion Reflects Air Trapping in COPD, was also presented. The researchers investigated DDR as an alternative for the evaluation of pulmonary function in COPD patients by examining the change rate in lung area due to respiratory motion in patients with COPD and in subjects with normal pulmonary function. The study found that DDR is a viable alternative indicator for air trapping in COPD. Air trapping is the abnormal retention of air in the lungs making it difficult to exhale completely. This study was performed by the Departments of Respiratory Medicine, Thoracic, Cardiovascular and General Surgery, and College of Medical, Pharmaceutical & Health Sciences at Kanazawa University, Kanazawa, Japan.Dynamic Digital Radiography represents ongoing research and development at Konica Minolta. It is not cleared by the U.S. Food and Drug Administration (FDA) for commercial distribution or available for sale in the United States.For more information: www.konicaminolta.com/medicalusa FacebookTwitterLinkedInPrint分享 Image courtesy of Imago Systems News | Cardiovascular Ultrasound | August 07, 2019 Contrast Use in First Transthoracic Echocardiogram for Heart Failure Reduces Repeat Testing Heart failure is the fourth most common cause for all admission to U.S. hospitals, and it is the most common reason for… read more Videos | Radiographic Fluoroscopy (RF) | August 09, 2019 VIDEO: Demonstration of the Shimadzu FluoroSpeed X1 Radiographic Fluoroscopy System Shimadzu displayed the FluoroSpeed X1 conventional radiographic fluoroscopy (RF) system at the Association for Medica read more last_img read more

Islamic Stateclaimed car bombing kills 2 in Yemens capital

first_img Here’s how to repair and patch damaged drywall SANAA, Yemen (AP) — An Islamic State-claimed car bomb exploded outside a mosque in Yemen’s capital Saturday, killing at least two people and wounding six amid the country’s raging civil war, authorities said.The bomb targeted the Qabat al-Mahdi mosque in Sanaa’s old city, where Shiite rebels known as Houthis and others pray, security officials said. The Islamic State group claimed the attack on a Twitter account associated with the extremists, saying it targeted Shiite Houthis, who the Sunni extremists view as heretics. New Year’s resolution: don’t spend another year in a kitchen you don’t like New Valley school lets students pick career-path academies Milstead says best way to stop wrong-way incidents is driving sober The security officials, who gave the casualty figure, spoke on condition of anonymity as they weren’t authorized to brief journalists.This is the second Sanaa attack claimed by the Islamic State group’s affiliate in Yemen this week. On Wednesday, a series of Islamic State-claimed bombings in the capital killed at least four people and wounded 60.In March, just before a Saudi-led coalition began its airstrike campaign against the Houthis, the Islamic State affiliate in Yemen claimed responsibility for a series of suicide bombings in Sanaa targeting Shiites that killed at least 137 people and wounded 345.The Houthis seized control of Sanaa in September and continue their advance across the country despite the Saudi-led airstrikes. Yemen’s conflict pits the Houthis and their allies against an array of forces, including southern separatists, local and tribal militias, Sunni Islamic militants and loyalists of exiled President Abed Rabbo Mansour Hadi.Yemen’s exiled government under Hadi and the Houthis have failed to come to terms on even a temporary cease-fire.Meanwhile Saturday, a Houthi border attack killed a Saudi soldier and wounded five in the southern Saudi region of Jizan, which shares a jagged mountain border area with Yemen, the Saudi military said. Since the Saudi-led airstrikes began, Houthis in Yemen frequently attack Saudi border guards with cross-border mortar fire.

Buyers Gain Confidence Through Technology

first_img The mortgage industry has made huge strides in terms of technological advances, offering homebuyers the opportunity to search for, tour, and make offers on homes all from digital platforms.Potential homebuyers are taking their search online where they are conducting much of the mortgage process on their own. A survey of 1,000 potential homebuyers by Owners.com found that consumers are confident in the economy and their own understanding of the mortgage process, which suggests they are becoming more self-reliant with the home buying experience.The survey  found that 69 percent of respondents gave themselves an “A” or “B” grade when it comes to understanding the home buying process, indicating their confidence in their ability to self-navigate the real estate market.According to the survey responses, 73 percent of survey respondents indicated that they would use online sites to search for properties, 53 percent said they are inclined to book home tours online, 43 percent would consider online financing product, and 27 percent would make a purchase offer online.“Consumers are heading into the spring home buying season with a positive outlook, according to our findings,” said Steve Udelson, President of Owners.com. “Home buyers also indicate a willingness to go online and handle more elements of the real estate process themselves in order to save time and money–a trend we expect to continue this year and beyond.”In terms of the housing economy, the survey found that 80 percent of buyers are confident that the 2016 home buying environment will be “as good as or better than it was five years ago.” In addition, 92 percent say that mortgage interest rates are “somewhat to very important” to their decision on when to buy.A similar online survey from Chase mortgage titled, “Insights from the Mind of the Modern Homebuyer,” of 1,014 adults (18 years-old and older) in Dallas, Miami, San Francisco, Sacramento, Chicago, Columbus, Phoenix, Tampa, San Diego, and Seattle, found that homeowners are struggling with a fear of missing out on other opportunities and are beginning to search for homes on digital platforms.According to the survey, 72 percent of homeowners don’t expect to stay in their homes for the long-term. This suggests that endless sources of information available through technology is leading homeowners to continually look for the next best thing. In addition, Chase found that 68 percent of consumers are starting the process on their own, with over 50 percent turning to a mobile device or online.Chase stated that digital outlets are changing the way that Americans search for homes and “more people [are] taking a do-it-yourself approach.” in Daily Dose, Data, Headlines, News, Origination, Technology March 31, 2016 533 Views Sharecenter_img Buyers Gain Confidence Through Technology Homebuyers Mortgage Industry Online Homebuying 2016-03-31 Staff Writerlast_img read more
