Net gun fired from helicopter catches deer near Cathlamet

first_imgCATHLAMET — A helicopter crew with a net gun captured a dozen deer at the Julia Butler Hansen National Wildlife Refuge near the mouth of the Columbia River where managers fear they’ll be flooded when a failing dike breaks.The net expanded in midair like a Spider-Man web and dropped on each deer, The Daily News reported Wednesday.Biologists resorted to the net gun after the deer were too wary to be driven into nets by helicopter hazing.No deer were killed during the helicopter capture, said U.S. Fish and Wildlife Service spokesman Doug Zimmer.“It was a very, very successful day. That was a very adept, very professional helicopter crew,” Zimmer said.The use of the helicopter was the latest development in an effort that began in January to move about 50 endangered Columbian white-tailed deer from the Julia Butler-Hansen Refuge, where habitat will be lost when a badly eroded dike fails.About 30 deer have been moved so far to the Ricgefield National Wildlife Refuge.A crew of more than 50 biologists, volunteers, local high school students and two veterinarians gathered at Cathlamet on Tuesday morning to hear helicopter pilot Jim Pope explain the rules of the capture.The ground crew would wait in silence at strategic points in the woods, Pope told his camouflage-clad audience, while Pope and his two flight assistants would attempt to flush the deer into the open, toward a loosely hung net.“It’s gonna be really boring initially — get comfortable!” said Pope, who has flown in helicopter animal roundups all over the West.All morning long, Pope dipped and buzzed over the refuge, skimming the tops of trees and swooping into open meadows.But the tactic wasn’t working. As a result of the ongoing capture effort, deer have become too wary of humans to run into open meadow, said Jackie Ferrier, who manages the refuge.last_img read more

Virgin slams Sydney Airport consolidation

first_imgVirgin Australia has raised concerns regarding inefficiencies in Sydney Airport’s transport systems. A high-frequency light-rail link between international terminal T1 and domestic terminals T2 and T3 has been suggested as a less expensive option than the planned redevelopment of all terminals. Sydney Airport has been clamouring to remove the split between international and domestic operations, with plans to base all operations out of Terminal 1 in order to cope with continued demand, reducing the urgency for a second airport. “The current facilities are third world – and that means cab, bus or train,” Virgin Australia chief executive John Borghetti said. Sydney Airport says plans to consolidate most domestic and international operations at one terminal would allow for a “greater number of intra-precinct transfers”. “We are still going to have separate terminals (if the airport proceeds with its plans) and irrespective of who is in them, we haven’t solved the transfer issue between those two terminals.” Source = ETB News: P.T. Image: ETB News The Australian carrier insists there is a need for a rapid-transit system between the airport’s terminals, The Age reported.last_img read more

CoreLogic Heralds Positive Housing Market Trends in 2013

first_img Share January 14, 2013 421 Views Despite recent turmoil for the financial services and mortgage banking industries, “”CoreLogic””:http://www.corelogic.com/ declared 2012 a “”pleasant economic surprise”” in the company’s most recent MarketPulse survey. Pointing out positive trends in the study’s opening remarks, CoreLogic noted, “”Gladly, the risk of a recession due to the shocks of 2011 has been largely averted. Job creation has fared better, certainly over the latter part of 2012.”” [IMAGE]According to CoreLogic, the housing market is starting 2013 “”poised for further recovery,”” and the firm is calling for improvements in pricing, sales, and delinquency rates. As for key components influencing growth in the year ahead, CoreLogic cited declining real estate owned sales and nationwide decreases in inventory.””Looking forward, CoreLogic expects continued market improvement, with home prices expected to rise 6 percent in 2013 due to high affordability fueling steady demand, a lower level of REO sales, and a low inventory of unsold [COLUMN_BREAK]homes,”” explained the organization’s analysts. “”Home prices will play an even more crucial role than usual in the market over the next two to three years. Rising home prices will slowly release the pent-up supply of inventory as under-equitied borrowers are unlocked and opportunistic sellers begin to provide relief to tight inventories.””Sam Khater, CoreLogic’s senior economist, commented, “”Many trade-up borrowers have been locked out of the market because their outstanding loan balance is greater than the market value of their home. Current owners need to sell at prices high enough to extinguish their debt and provide equity for the next home purchase.””Acknowledging the impact of recent changes to housing finance policies, CoreLogic stated that the future remains “”hopeful,”” as rising home prices provide a “”buffer against policy headwinds.”” Referencing cumulative statistics from 2012 to support its projections, CoreLogic reiterated that its Home Price Index appreciated by 6.3 percent year-over-year as of last October. Additionally, the company referred to increases in the market’s lowest tier – those selling for less than 75 percent of the median price – stating that pricing in the sector had displayed the greatest improvement, rising 8.3 percent year-over-year as of October 2012. The company’s chief economist, Mark Fleming, indicated optimism for the year ahead as he shared his perspective on housing’s past 12 months, concluding, “”Housing was clearly one of the past year’s biggest surprises. Even without significant gains in income, housing mounted an impressive recovery in 2012.”” in Data, Government, Origination, Secondary Market, Servicing, Technologycenter_img CoreLogic Heralds Positive Housing Market Trends in 2013 Agents & Brokers Attorneys & Title Companies Company News CoreLogic Investors Lenders & Servicers Processing Service Providers 2013-01-14 Abby Gregorylast_img read more

Fixed Rates Continue to Climb

first_img Share in Data, Origination Fixed Rates Continue to Climb Agents & Brokers Attorneys & Title Companies Bankrate Freddie Mac Investors Lenders & Servicers Mortgage Rates Refinance Service Providers 2013-05-23 Tory Barringercenter_img Fixed mortgage rates trended higher for the third consecutive week, according to reports from “”Freddie Mac””:http://www.freddiemac.com/ and “”Bankrate.com””:http://www.bankrate.com/.[IMAGE]According to Freddie Mac’s Primary Mortgage Market Survey, the 30-year fixed-rate mortgage (FRM) averaged 3.59 percent (0.7 point) for the week ending May 23, up from 3.51 percent the previous week. Last year at this time, the 30-year FRM averaged 3.78 percent.The 15-year FRM was also up, averaging 2.77 percent (0.7 point) from 2.69 percent previously.[COLUMN_BREAK]The 5-year Treasury-indexed hybrid adjustable-rate mortgage (ARM) had an average rate of 2.63 percent (0.5 point) this week–slightly up from 2.62 percent in the last survey–while the 1-year ARM averaged 2.55 percent (0.4 point), flat from last week.””Fixed-rates moved up for the third consecutive week, with the average 30-year fixed-rate mortgage about a quarter-percentage point higher than three weeks ago. While this may slow some of the refinance momentum, rates are nonetheless low and home-buyer affordability high, which should further aid home sales and construction in coming weeks,”” said Frank Nothaft, VP and chief economist at Freddie Mac.The steady rise in rates over the last several weeks has indeed been a drag on refinance volume. According to the Mortgage Bankers Association’s “”Weekly Mortgage Applications Survey””:https://themreport.com/articles/mortgage-applications-decline-as-refis-nosedive-2013-05-22 for the week ending May 17, refinance applications have fallen to their lowest level since late March.Bankrate’s weekly national survey showed the benchmark 30-year fixed rate rising to 3.74 percent, an increase of 3 basis points. The 15-year fixed was at 2.97 percent, meanwhile, up from 2.92 percent.The 5/1 ARM averaged 2.70 percent, Bankrate reported, up from 2.68 percent last week. May 23, 2013 433 Views last_img read more

The two companies remain partners and joint shareholders in this joint venture.Capespan’s 9.23% stake was sold to a consortium of Chinese investors for RMB 566 million (US$82 million). “Capespan has over the years invested in a number of companies internationally in order to expand our footprint in geographically and commercially strategic regions. All our investments are of a strategic commercial nature, underpinned by a material shareholding,” said Tonie Fuchs, Capespan’s managing director. “These partnerships, especially our relationship with Joy Wing Mau, have been key to Capespan’s success.”Fuchs explained that even though Capespan’s partnership and commercial relationship with Joy Wing Mau remains strong, the dilution in shareholding “reduced the strategic influence that Capespan retained through this investment.” You might also be interested in “Capespan is not an investment holding company. We invest where we need, through greater strategic influence, to expand our market penetration for the benefit of our grower supplier customers,” he said.”We also realised that, since our investment in Golden Wing Mau eight years ago, our commercial partnership has outgrown our investment. Our commercial relationship has flourished because we know and trust each other, not because of Capespan’s shareholding. Joy Wing Mau remains Capespan’s commercial partner, despite the sale of our investment.”He added that Capeapsn remains “fully committed” to the Asian region.In recent years, Capespan has invested heavily in growing its farming operations in Southern Africa and in technology within the fruit marketing and distribution division.“Capespan is a producer and global marketer of fruit. That is our core business. We will use the bulk of the proceeds of this sale to strengthen our core business, with the aim to provide a more efficient and cost effective service to our grower and market customers,” he said.According to Norman Celliers, CEO of Zeder Investments, the parent company of Capespan, the reinvestment of the bulk of the sale proceeds underlines Zeder’s commitment to Capespan.“The reinvestment will considerably reduce the gearing of Capespan’s core businesses. It will stimulate business growth and reposition Capespan to focus on its primary operations,” he said.Mau Wah Liu, chairman of Joy wing Mau, said: “Capespan has been our strategic partner for the last eight years and has contributed considerably to the growth of Joy Wing Mau.”I would like to thank the management team and shareholders of Capespan for their support and contribution to the development of Joy Wing Mau. We continue to see each other as strategic partners in the supply and development of the Cape and Outspan brands in China.”last_img read more

Also with the new conversation about diversity in Hollywood I think it is quite progressive to have films that are more representative I think there is so much beauty in the diversity of India That is what makes us unique Why should reflecting that diversity in a film be problematic rather than progressive Why do you feel people don’t come out in open to speak on such topics It is easier to

you to speak out But having said that I am so encouraged by the support of people across the world and the media What is your take on censorship I think the concept of censorship is not in tandem with the concept of democracy and the freedom of expression A country that lets adults vote and elect their leaders must let its adult citizens choose the films they want to watch Particularly in 2017 with the digital age the concept of censorship makes no sense And as is proven through what happened with Lipstick Under my Burkha the CBFC is completely ill-equipped to judge a film They have no idea as to how to look at a film in context of world cinema gender politics what is going in society the politics of representation alternative forms of narrative the politics of the gaze Right now their only point of reference seems to be the popular male dominated mainstream narrative of popular culture They are frightened by alternative view points like the female point of view They are then

Indian Express App More Top NewsWritten by Ashok Gulati Shweta Saini | Updated: March 28 2016 12:14 am Before one assesses the seriousness of this dream-promise one must be clear about the PM’s commitment Related News For the last two months the Narendra Modi government seems to have gone into an overdrive to appease farmers Several farmer rallies have been organised and the common theme has been the PM’s “dream” to double the incomes of farmers by 2022 According to the PM agriculture has to stand on three pillars — paramparagat kheti (traditional agriculture) diversification into agro-forestry by planting trees on the boundaries of farmers’ fields and encouraging livestock and bee-keeping duly supported by food processing These pillars will reduce the risks in farming and augment farmers’ incomes He weaves his strategy with programmes such as soil health cards and neem-coated urea to take care of “mother earth’s” health; giving more resources for irrigation and using the MGNREGA for recharging ground water through check dams and farm ponds thus getting more crop from every drop of water The picture is completed by the Pradhan Mantri Fasal Bima Yojana (crop insurance) and e-market platform that he is going to launch on April 14 All these nodes are right for any meaningful agri-strategy But haven’t these been in existence in some form or the other What is the novel idea in this strategy that will double farmer incomes in six years Share This Article Related Article Before one assesses the seriousness of this dream-promise one must be clear about the PM’s commitment What the nation would really like to know is whether he is talking of doubling nominal incomes or real incomes Whenever one talks of doubling say national income or sectoral incomes one means it in real terms Doubling of real incomes in six years would be a miracle of miracles as it would imply a compound growth rate of 12 per cent per annum But as they say “nothing is impossible” Madhya Pradesh has registered 142 per cent growth in real agri-GDP over the last five years and states like Jharkhand Chhattisgarh Gujarat Himachal Pradesh Rajasthan and even Bihar have witnessed agri-growth in excess of 7 per cent Internationally China’s farm incomes grew at 14 per cent per annum and the agri-GDP at 71 per cent during the first few years of economic reforms (1978-86) This helped in halving its poverty in just six years It generated a huge demand for industrial products in rural areas which were met by scaling up town and village enterprises (TVEs) This also gave political legitimacy to carry on economic reforms more aggressively How did China achieve this Very briefly they incentivised the peasantry by dismantling the commune system in land and freeing up agri-prices Lately China has been heavily supporting farm prices For instance their MSP for wheat in 2014-15 was $385/tonne compared to India’s $226/tonne Does PM Modi plan to raise the MSPs of agri-products substantially The MSPs announced in the first four crop seasons under his regime do not indicate any such move On the contrary their rise has been largely suppressed Moreover in much of eastern India including in his own constituency of Varanasi the market prices of paddy prevailing in the last kharif season were15-20 per cent below the MSP The absence of any robust procurement machinery in the eastern belt is one major stumbling block that is holding back the second green revolution there So the other paths to doubling farmer incomes would be raising productivity and diversification into high-value agriculture as well as diversification of farm employment into non-farm activities Raising productivity requires massive investments in R&D irrigation and fertilisers Compared to China India is way behind in all these factors and not surprisingly our productivity levels in almost all crops range between 50 to 75 per cent of Chinese levels Diversification into high-value agriculture requires a value-chain approach and we are lagging behind in that too India may be producing 145 million tonnes of milk and more than 270 million tonnes of horticulture products but our processing levels (in the organised sector) are way below — less than 20 per cent in milk and less than 5 per cent in fruits and vegetables — international levels Encouraging processing and building value-chains would help create non-farm jobs in rural areas Until all these factors come together Modi’s dream of doubling real farm incomes by 2022 will remain far-fetched That brings us to the possibility of doubling farmers’ incomes in nominal terms by letting price increases raise incomes But this has been done during the UPA regime too Between 2008-09 and 2013-14 India’s agri-GDP at current prices grew at 148 per cent annually on average with wholesale food article inflation averaging 117 per cent and real agri-GDP growing at only 31 per cent per annum Farm wages also grew at an average rate of 188 per cent in nominal terms and 75 per cent in real terms in these six years So what is new that Modi is promising If Modi can keep food price inflation below 5-6 per cent and raise farmers’ nominal incomes by 12 per cent per annum it will still be commendable Otherwise there is nothing novel about what Modi is selling: It is just old wine in a new bottle Therefore unless this slogan is backed by action that too in mission-mode it will remain just a dream and the PM will be branded nothing more than an affable “sapno ka saudagar” Gulati

Published: July 24 2015 12:00 am The Bihar elections will tell us if Yadavs and Kurmis can put aside their differences and work together in an election that will be more about state-level caste interests than national considerations Related News The 2014 Lok Sabha elections produced an assembly where many voices can hardly be heard The representation of Muslims for instance is at a historical low with less than 4 per cent of the seats But there are other groups that have also suffered a sharp decline in representation OBCs who over the last 25 years have dominated the political scene in the Hindi-speaking belt are a case in point Since the late 1980s one of the most significant trends in Indian politics has been the gradual decline of upper-caste representation in the Lok Sabha and the concomitant rise of OBCs This phenomenon was essentially due to the decline of the Congress — a party dominated by upper castes — and to the rise of regional parties primarily supported by large dominant OBC groups In 1989 the proportion of OBCs in the Lok Sabha had jumped from 11 per cent to 21 per cent and continued to grow in the post-Mandal phase until 2004 when it peaked at 26 per cent In parallel the representation of upper castes persistently fell from 49 per cent in 1984 to 37 per cent in 1989 and 34 per cent in 2004 The gap between OBCs and upper caste MPs returned from the Hindi-speaking belt had never been so small The 2009 general elections marked a reversal of that trend as upper caste representation shot up to 43 per cent and the share of OBCs fell to 18 per cent Share This Article Related Article The 2014 general elections confirmed that reversal with upper caste representation further rising to 445 per cent and OBC representation stagnating at around 20 per cent It is the first time since Independence that the proportion of upper castes in the Lok Sabha has increased two times in a row OBCs who have occupied the centre of the political space in northern India since the early 1990s are now back at their pre-Mandal level of representation Among OBCs Yadavs are the main losers Dominant in Uttar Pradesh and Bihar politics where they respectively represent 8 and 11 per cent of the population they have seen their representation slump from 11 per cent of MPs from the Hindi-speaking belt to 6 per cent over the last two elections They currently stand below the Jats (75 per cent) who have been gaining ground over the same period The representation of Kurmis another important group has also decreased by a third since 2004 Among the upper castes the Brahmins are the main winners Their share of MPs has jumped from an all-time low of 9 per cent in 2004 to 17 per cent a decade later They have caught up with the Rajputs — the group counting the highest number of MPs among the upper castes in the Hindi-speaking belt since 1998 Naturally there are geographical variations In Bihar the share of OBCs remains high at 30 per cent The upper castes have about 45 per cent of the seats The gap in Uttar Pradesh is wider at 435 per cent for upper castes against 26 per cent for OBCs Who is responsible for this significant transformation of the social profile of the Hindi-speaking belt’s representation in the Lok Sabha Not the regional parties which remain largely dominated by OBCs Not the BJP alone since the biggest jump of upper caste representation took place in 2009 In fact both national parties – the Congress and BJP – are responsible for this reversal since the two parties tend to proportionally field more upper caste candidates as compared to other parties In 2009 44 per cent of Congress MPs from the Hindi belt came from the upper castes and 57 per cent in 2014 The fewer MPs the Congress has the higher the proportion of upper caste among them The BJP’s case is the most interesting The party has never had less that 40 per cent of its Hindi belt MPs coming from the upper castes This proportion rose to 585 per cent in 2009 It dropped by 11 percentage points in 2014 to 475 per cent but remained above the average Such an evolution shows that the classic tropes of OBC politics — quotas and simple descriptive representation — no longer work Quota politics ceases to be effective when no party — not even those dominated by OBCs — can promise an extension of the quota regime The “vote for me and you will get reservations” slogan has lost traction The second lesson is that social economic and political divisions among OBCs between jatis and between OBCs and other backward groups have prevented the formation of durable backward fronts in the Hindi Belt hurting the prospects of erstwhile-socialist regional parties In fact the non-dominant OBCs which constitute the majority of the OBC population seldom get any representation at all other than in a few pockets where they have a numerical advantage The Bihar elections will tell us if Yadavs and Kurmis can put aside their differences and work together in an election that will be more about state-level caste interests than national considerations Third class dynamics have gained considerable importance over the last two decades a period of unprecedented growth of the neo middle classes particularly in small towns and also in rural areas These class dynamics not only increase social differentiation between groups but have reinforced social differentiation within particular castes Voting patterns among OBCs in India at large show that these groups no longer vote as cohesively as they used to According to the CSDS-Lokniti National Election Survey 2014 richer OBCs have voted for the BJP more than poorer OBCs (37 per cent against 28 per cent) In Uttar Pradesh poorer Yadavs have stayed faithful to the Samajwadi Party (82 per cent) but the higher the class the more Yadavs shifted towards the BJP In 2014 32 per cent of “lower class” Yadavs voted for the BJP as against 49 per cent for the SP These aspiring Yadavs supported the BJP as many other neo-middle class voters did for its development promises They followed Narendra Modi who was projected as an OBC leader because of their aspirations for higher standards of living The personalisation of the campaign meant that the BJP could afford to distribute more tickets to its historical core support base the upper castes As is the case for the Congress the BJP remains a party heavily dominated by the upper castes This could create a conundrum for the BJP Are all these MPs pursuing an upper-caste agenda in the House How does this new configuration of the sociology of the Lok Sabha affect MPs’ positions on issues such as land acquisition on which OBCs are at loggerheads with the established old elites One could argue that the personal opinions of MPs are irrelevant in a highly centralised party and in a political system dominated by a centralising executive — but that could be true only up to a point Despite the claims of inclusiveness or the sophistication of electoral strategies both the BJP and Congress remain upper caste dominated unwilling to make space for other groups unless they absolutely have to For the moment the class dynamics among those groups are in favour of the BJP But should the party be unable to deliver on job-creation or shed its current pro-rich tag the cards could be reshuffled The Bihar
