Duncan sees no issue turning over residential school documents blames TRC headDuncan sees no issue turning over residential school documents blames TRC head

first_imgBy Jorge Barrera APTN National News OTTAWA–Aboriginal Affairs Minister John Duncan says he sees no “issue” in his government’s handling of residential school documents and blames the head of the Truth and Reconciliation Commission for creating the controversy that’s slowing things down.In an appearance Monday before the Commons Aboriginal affairs committee, Duncan said the TRC will get all the documents they need by next summer.“I fail to see the issue with their documents” said Duncan. “Federally, I think we are in pretty good shape.”The TRC is taking Ottawa to court claiming the federal government is refusing to hand over millions of records related to the 150 year existence of Indian residential schools.Duncan placed the blame for the controversy at the feet of TRC Chair Murray Sinclair. Duncan said he’s received positive signals from Sinclair’s co-commissioners, Wilton Littlechild and Marie Wilson.“It is only in Justice Sinclair that we are getting this kind of response,” said Duncan. “I don’t know what he is doing. I would like to think we can move on with the process.”The TRC alleges in court documents that the Harper government is refusing to release millions of documents and files. The TRC claims some of the documents Ottawa is refusing to hand over include RCMP files and documents on missing children and grave sites at residential schools.Aboriginal Affairs deputy minister Michael Wernick, who also appeared before the committee, said the TRC would get all residential school records, including RCMP files. Wernick said the TRC would also get documents ranging up to the last existing school which shut down in 1996 and some documents around the conclusion of the multi-billion dollar residential school settlement.Wernick said the TRC has already received over a million documents.Wernick said the government, however, is drawing a line around documents from the negotiations leading to the court settlement and the private files of residential school survivors seeking compensation.“We have a legitimate disagreement about the relevance of documents from the 2005 negotiations,” said Wernick. “We simply disagree they need to see all the applications and adjudications that are now under way.”APTN National News has learned that the TRC is seeking cabinet documents from the Paul Martin government years on the eventual residential school settlement.The RCMP was involved in snatching children from their homes and forcing them to attend residential schools. The TRC believes the RCMP also has criminal complaints against residential schools and staff over abuse.jbarrera@aptn.calast_img read more

Ten ex PSD officers jailedTen ex PSD officers jailed

Another former PSD officer was freed from the case by the Panadura High Court. The former PSD officers were attached to the security staff of former President Chandrika Kumaratunga. The former PSD members were charged with unlawful assembly, organizing, intimidating and robbing the property worth of Rs. 3.6 million from the house of Rookantha Goonatillake. The Panadura High Court today sentenced to jail 10 former Presidential Security Division (PSD) officers over their involvement in the harassment of popular singers Rukantha Gunatillaka and Chandralekha Perera several years ago.The 10 former PSD officers were given 4 1/2 year jail terms and were also ordered to pay compensation to the victims. The musician’s wife Chandralekha Perera was also harassed. The incident took place in the year 2000 during the presidency of Chandrika Kumaratunga.Fearing for their lives, Rookantha Goonatillake and his family left the country following the incident and lived in the United States.

UN rights expert calls for unimpeded access to DPR of KoreaUN rights expert calls for unimpeded access to DPR of Korea

Addressing a press briefing at UN Headquarters in New York, Vivit Muntarbhorn, Special Rapporteur on the human rights situation in the DPRK, said despite their presence in the country, UN agencies were facing difficulties in assessing the population’s need for food assistance.Describing food shortage as a “critical” humanitarian issue in the DPRK, the Rapporteur said the UN agencies were helpful, but only to a “limited” extent, because their mobility was restricted.Mr. Muntarbhorn, a law professor at Chulalongkorn University in Bangkok, said the Government showed some signs of positive development in observing human rights, but added that Pyongyang continued to lack transparency and accountability. “The key challenge is not the normative side,” he said, “but how it’s implemented. That’s the basic, basic challenge.”He said despite his repeated requests, the DPRK Government did not allow him to enter Pyongyang. Nevertheless, he added, he still hoped that the Government might change its decision.The Rapporteur also said he received massive complaints about arbitrary detentions, which suggested “a certain pattern that gives rise to serious concerns.” He, however, admitted that such complaints were “allegations” that could not be verified.Expressing his concerns about the plight of those fleeing the DPRK, whether due to economic or political reasons, Mr. Muntarbhorn urged the international community to promote inter-country cooperation to protect the rights of refugees and asylum-seekers. read more

The move taken last month by Moscow will also help to galvanize the world’s efforts to tackle the planetary challenge of climate change, Mr. Annan said in a message to the Energy Globe Awards delivered by Franz Baumann, Deputy Director-General of the UN Office at Vienna (UNOV). “Clean, affordable and sustainable energy is essential for human development,” he said, noting that some two billion people still lack access to electricity. “The Energy Globe Awards demonstrate that clean and modern forms of energy to drive sustainable development and reduce environmental impacts are available now,” he added. “We need to do all we can to promote their further development and to establish a level playing field so that they can reach the market and take hold.” The Awards go to best practice projects and initiatives from across the world that contribute to protecting the four basic elements of life – earth, fire, water and air. The winners will be announced on 8 December. read more

Japanese government to press ahead with robotic deepsea miningJapanese government to press ahead with robotic deepsea mining

first_imgAccording to a January 8 report in Japanese newspaper, The Yomiuri Shimbun, the development of mining technology able to extract gold, silver and rare metals lying untapped on the deep seafloor in Japanese territorial waters will start in 2011. By combining advanced technologies in robotics and deep-sea mining, the government aims to develop a mining system that will be among the world’s first deep-sea mining robots to excavate minerals, which will then be transported to a support ship on the surface via a pipe.The Japanese government will start experiments this year on a submerged test model, with a target of putting the system into commercial use in about ten years, according to the reports. The Natural Resources and Energy Agency will commission the Japan Oil, Gas and Metals National Corp (JOGMEC), which is an independent administrative institution, to develop the system along with two private companies.Target areas for deep-sea mining are hydrothermal deposits in the Izena submarine caldera in the Okinawa trough northwest of Okinawa Island, and the Bayonnaise submarine caldera off the Izu-Ogasawara island chain. Both areas are within Japan’s exclusive economic zone and are believed to be the world’s richest seabed deposits of gold, silver, rare metals and rare earth minerals.The seafloor mining robot would be capable of operating at a maximum depth of 2km, equipped with a large drill and bladed excavating device, and would be remote-controlled from a support vessel. For movement, the robot would have either tracks or crablike legs. The cost of developing the entire system, including the support vessel, is estimated at over £230 million.last_img read more

Stigma When a doctor can say to you when filling out aStigma When a doctor can say to you when filling out a

first_img By Jen Ronan But I digress. It’s still an example of how stigma can be a crippling nemesis in the battle for our mental health, even within ourselves.While I can be seen and heard on a regular basis on most social media platforms and regularly on TV3’s The Elaine Show talking about (when relevant) my own experiences with self-harm, depression, and generalised anxiety disorder, I still find it incredibly hard to reach out and contact someone when I’m right in the eye of a mental health storm.It’s always far easier to chat informatively about such horrors when they’re in your rear-view mirror, because at that stage, it’s over.I’ve told myself that I came through it, so I’m fine now. That’s more palatable to my sense of self-worth as opposed to me reaching out to a friend, crying incoherently, breathing erratically, unwashed and terrified, afraid of being alone with my own brain a second longer for fear that I’ll never really quite make it back into daylight.Everyone loves a success storyEverybody loves a success story, you say to yourself. Share it. Tell them all about the waking nightmares and the fact that you didn’t shower or eat an actual hot meal for over a week because you know deep down inside that you’re not worth the effort. Tell them about how you scream hate-mantras into the mirror in the wee small hours of the morning.Show them everything. Leave no manky stone unturned, help others while you do it. But make sure you do it in the past tense, from a well-constructed blog post, or from a podium to an audience, scrubbed up well for once.It’s easier for you, and everyone else, that way. It’s safer. The horse is back in the stable again, and all is well. Except that it’s not. And not just with the problem of personal stigma.Mental health mattersWe have a long way to go in this country when it comes to our approach to mental health matters. It’s certainly not as bad as it used to be, but that’s not good enough when there’s a body count involved in how we measure good and bad results.When a doctor can say to you when filling out a sick cert: “So, what do you want me to write down, will I just put depression, or…?” (this has happened to me), there’s still stigma attached to mental health issues.Now I don’t know if it points to the doctor’s own attitude to it, or if he was trying to word it the best way possible in case of an unsupportive employer, but it’s certainly worth noting. (I’m very supported and minded where I work by the way, I know others are not so lucky. That’s for anther day.)Community loveWhere you really see the stigma around issues in mental health being absolutely destroyed is within all of our local communities, on a non-government organisational level.People are mad as hell, they’re losing loved ones needlessly every year to suicide and living with long-term effects of debilitating mental illness, and they’re not going to take it anymore.They volunteer, they donate, they share, they reach out, they set up groups and get training to help those in immediate distress, they walk the bridges at night offering conversation and human connection, they pull people back from the brink of despair, both spiritually and physically, on a regular basis, and they ask for nothing for themselves.The proof of a disappearing stigma on a community level is in the rising numbers. Next month will see campaigns like Green Ribbon and Darkness Into Light happening, and they both grow hugely every year in terms of how many get involved, and more importantly, stay involved.If we all could take more example from the wonderful communities and people they represent, we’d be a mental health utopia.Until then, let’s keep supporting the likes of Aware, See Change, Spun Out, The Samaritans, Pieta House, Marine Rescue Services, other suicide prevention groups, and other organisations far too many to mention here. I’ll also do my bit to stamp out the self-imposed stigma surrounding my own mental health issues, and try to practice what I preach. Deal?Limerick blogger, Jen Ronan, is no stranger to sharing her stories in public. As a regular panellist on TV3′s Midday and occasionally on radio and in magazines, she’s always maintained that mental illness should be discussed out in the open to help those dealing with issues. In May each year, See Change and its partner organisations run the Green Ribbon campaign to get Ireland talking about mental health. This year, 500,000 green ribbons will be distributed nationwide and free of charge in conjunction with hundreds of local and national events.

Punjab National Banks Q1 net profit falls 58 asset quality worsensPunjab National Banks Q1 net profit falls 58 asset quality worsens

first_imgPunjab National Bank’s (PNB) net profit fell by 58 percent in the June quarter (Q1) to Rs. 306 crore from Rs. 720 crore seen a year-ago. However, higher growth in its other income category and lower expenditure on tax arrested a much steeper fall predicted by analysts.The bank said in its financial statement on Thusday that Q1 saw its other income grow by 68.5 percent to Rs. 2,355 crore from Rs. 1,397 crore seen last fiscal. During the same period, tax expenditure decreased by 61.7 percent to Rs. 230 crore.The state-run bank’s net interest income declined 9.8 percent to Rs. 3,699 crore from a year earlier quarter. (Net interest is the interest earned on loans minus the interest given on deposits). Total interest earned during Q1 was Rs. 11,549 crore and interest expended was Rs. 7,875 crore.PNB’s total income for the quarter stood at Rs. 4,979 crore, up 3.70 percent from the corresponding quarter a year ago. It was Rs. 13,432 crore a year earlier and increased to Rs. 13,930 crore in Q1.The bank’s provisioning for bad loans witnessed a steep decline of 74 percent in a quarter-over-quarter period. In March quarter (Q4 of 2016) the provisioning was Rs. 10, 485 crore and declined to Rs. 2,738 crore in this quarter.The asset quality of the bank deteriorated higher than expected. Its gross non-performing assets (NPAs) increased to 13.75 percent in this quarter from 12.90 percent in March 2016. In the same period, net NPAs shot up to 9.16 percent from 8.61 percent.PNB’s MD and CEO Usha Ananthasubramanian said that fresh slippages during the June quarter amounted to Rs. 7,533 crore, compared to Rs. 23,545 crore seen in the previous period.The PSU bank’s capital adequacy ratio (CAR), which measures a bank’s capital as against its risks and liabilities, was 11.58 percent in this quarter as against 12.08 percent seen a year ago.PNB recently received Rs. 2,816 crore of liquidity infusion from the government. The capital infusion is part of the government’s Indradhanush road map that seeks to infuse Rs. 70,000 crore in four years to help state-run banks to brace up and also raise funds from the market to meet the Basel III requirements. This is also expected to help the credit growth in the economy. At 15:15 IST, shares of PNB were trading down 2.82 percent to Rs. 129 on the Bombay Stock Exchange.last_img read more

What BioShock wouldve looked like in Unreal Engine 4What BioShock wouldve looked like in Unreal Engine 4

first_imgIt says a great deal about a game when, years later — even after the company has been dissolved (albeit, suspiciously) — people just can’t pry themselves away from it. The original BioShock, released in 2007, remains on everyone’s minds to this day, with fan art continually flooding the internet, the game’s now legendary underwater city Rapture being recalled in games media on an almost regular basis, and fans giving the game their own modern polish. YouTube user noodlespagoodle managed to grab some assets from the original game, and place them into Unreal Engine 4, giving us a rough impression of what the game would look like had it been made using the latest technology.Though BioShock Infinite’s two-part campaign DLC, Burial at Sea, was only released within the past handful of months — and thus, uses modern technology — it did not use Unreal Engine 4. Instead, it used a modified version of UE3. The episodic return to Rapture looks amazing (and though short, plays amazingly as well), but with Unreal Engine 4, the underwater dystopia could look even better.Obviously, the above video doesn’t depict a complete, modern remake of the seven-year-old BioShock. Though the original game’s very specific atmosphere is a little off, and though the demo wasn’t exactly polished to a pristine shine, the game does look quite good. Mainly, the individual assets look great for a plug-and-play upgrade, and the lighting bouncing off the Big Daddy’s iconic diving suit is nothing short of impressive. The glass windows contorting the shapes of everything on the opposite side also helps promote Rapture’s twisted and claustrophobic feel.Irrational Games is gone, Ken Levine has moved onto smaller projects, and 2K is left with BioShock. That doesn’t mean the franchise is done, and 2K did a much better job with BioShock 2 than the credit they receive, so it’s possible that we’ll get some sort of full remake somewhere down the line, and can experience the first foray into Rapture all over again — this time with an updated engine.last_img read more

Men die and queens prepare to rule on Game of ThronesMen die and queens prepare to rule on Game of Thrones

first_imgThis week on HBO’s Game of Thrones showrunners David Benioff and DB Weiss scripted an episode that contained the most actual combat ever portrayed during a single episode of the series.Those who have been watching the show from the beginning know that the ninth episode of the season often contains a climax moment and is usually pretty damn good. The first season’s ninth episode, “Baelor,” featured the first major death in the series, and season two’s ninth episode “Blackwater” saw a nighttime battle lit by a wildfire explosion. “The Rains of Castamere” in season three added more bodies of beloved characters at the Red Weddin,g and last season’s “The Dance of Dragons” saw Daenerys take flight on Drogon for the first time. “Battle of the Bastards” did not disappoint.Spoilers for this season’s “Battle of the Bastards” follow.The newest installment in ninth episode glory managed to start with Daenerys finally putting her dragons to good combat use in Meereen. Drogon, Viserion, and Rhaegal have been used as a portent of things to come for the majority of the run of the show, and either due to budget constraints or for plotting purposes, we haven’t seen much of what a dragon looks like in combat. The battle pit of “The Dance of Dragons” was a step in the right direction, what happened in Meereen is much much better. Even though it was only a short sequence, Dany also brought her Dothraki Horde to Meereen, and for the first time we saw how an enlightened Dragon Queen takes a city.As far as the George RR Martin books go, the Siege of Meereen is happening, but Dany has just taken off from the fighting pits with Drogon. It’s suspected that she’ll be rescued from the other Khals by dragon instead of by emerging from another pyre unburt. Martin has emphatically said that being a Targaryen does not mean you are automatically fireproof and the show only needed to give Dany a reprise of her pyre emergence so they could isolate Drogon’s return in a single episode. More spinning of the wheel. Finally, it looks like we might get some movement on Dany’s plot, much like how Arya is finally moving west for the series endgame. Martin’s so-called “Meereenese Knot” (in reference to the impossible Gordian knot legend) looks like it can be quickly burned while Dany and her followers get on Greyjoy ships.Watching Yara and Danerys like:#GameofThrones— SomeGirlfromCanada (@girlfromcanada) June 20, 2016Judging by next episode’s preview, we’re not done in Meereen just yet, so the grand dream of having Dany land in Westeros to cap off the season six finale seems unlikely. Instead, we’ve gained an alliance of queens with Yara Greyjoy knowing exactly what to say to Dany to get the Targaryen on her side, even if it means giving up the Iron Born way of life (piracy and all it entails).Up in The North, season six’s rise of the Game of Thrones queens was only made possible by Sansa withholding information from Jon because, um, he doesn’t give her credit? The titular Battle of the Bastards was quite the spectacle of how medieval combat can be taken to the extreme. But, the end solution — the sudden arrival of Littlefinger and the Knights of the Vale — accentuates the fact that Sansa didn’t tell Jon before the bloody battle that the cavalry (literally) was on its way.The preview for episode 10 shows Jon lecturing Sansa about trust, indicating the show plans to deal with the tactical misstep from the Queen in the North, but fans of the show immediately deciphered the “mysterious” letter she wrote in a prior episode and knew she wrote to the Vale.Instead, the show shifts from fantasy carnage to historical warfare to audience wish fulfillment, with both Starks getting a moment to take their personal revenge on Ramsay Bolton (formally Snow). Jon gets to break his face, but restrains himself from beating the Mad Bastard to death in favor of Sansa getting to choose his ultimate end.The pre-battle parlay where Ramsay boasts about starving his dogs and declines to fight in place of his men makes Ramsay’s dogs the Chekhov’s gun of the episode, and Sansa pulls the trigger in the last scene. Since Ramsay has been even more reviled than incest-born king Joffrey Baratheon and the writers used every opportunity to show that Ramsay is a sadistic psychopath, it gave the series enough leeway to show the first chomps of a dog mauling’s Ramsay’s face. Sansa stays to watch for a bit, but walks off and smiles and the episode cuts to credits.Much like this season has been planting the idea of Ramsay’s connection to his dogs (he fed them the remains of his girlfriend, his step mom, and his baby brother), the show also doubled down on the story of the wildfire underneath King’s Landing. In case you missed what Cersei and Qyburn were talking about last episode, that’s some big foreshadowing of how the story at King’s Landing will go next week.For now, however, the Starks hold Winterfell for the first time since season two, episode 10 when Rickon and Bran lost Winterfell to Theon. Sansa hasn’t been in Stark-occupied Winterfell since episode two of season one, and Jon hasn’t been in Winterfell at all since the same episode. It’s been a long time coming. Wonder if it’ll last?last_img read more

Genome Engineering Could Provide New Method of Creating DieselGenome Engineering Could Provide New Method of Creating Diesel

first_img New biofuel from trees developed at UGA Joule Biotechnologies, Inc. has announced that it has used a process of genome engineering to create organisms that can turn carbon dioxide into hydrocarbons that can be used as fuel. The process will be powered by the sun. Joule is planning to create a viable diesel production process using light and air. In a press release from Joule, the basics of the process are explained:Joule is advancing a new, photosynthesis-driven approach to producing renewable fuels, avoiding the economic and environmental burden of multi-step, cellulosic or algal biomass-derived methods. The company employs a novel SolarConverter system, together with proprietary, product-specific organisms and state-of-the-art process design, to harness the power of sunlight while consuming waste CO2. Its pioneering technology platform has already been proven out with the conversion of CO2 into ethanol at high productivities, a process that enters pilot development in early 2010. With this latest feat of genome engineering, Joule is now capable of directly producing hydrocarbons – setting the stage for delivery of infrastructure-compatible diesel fuel without the need for raw material feedstocks or complex refining.The breakthrough was made possible by the discovery of unique genes coding for enzymatic mechanisms that enable the direct synthesis of both alkane and olefin molecules – the chemical composition of diesel. Production was achieved at lab scale, with pilot development slated for early 2011.Joule is hoping that its process will help reduce dependence on other sources of diesel, fostering better energy independence. The organisms that Joule is engineering are capable of directly secreting hyrdocoarbon molecules. Joule points out that it will be using non-arable land, as the process will not need to grow crops. No fresh water will be needed, either.The idea of creating diesel using light and air (and a few other components) is an interesting concept if Joule can make it work, and one that could help reduce reliance on oil for diesel fuel, as well as reducing overall carbon emissions present in the diesel fuel production process.© 2009 When we think of genetic engineering, our minds often jump to giant tomatoes and animal cloning.

As a non-academic, regional integrated health system based in Asheville, N.C., that includes a 730 bed, high-volume, high-acuity tertiary-quaternary hospital, Mission is looking to balance clinical quality with significant cost savings and efficiency across their system — the same challenge facing nearly all healthcare systems nationwide.“This is an innovative, collaborative, outcomes-driven relationship focused on developing new, transformational ways of caring for patients at Mission Health and nationwide,” said Ronald A. Paulus, M.D., president and CEO, Mission Health. “The challenges we face at Mission are like so many health systems across the nation. Our goal is to improve our margin, drive system-wide efficiency and deliver an exceptional, transparent experience for every patient, family and team member. The solutions that we develop and cost savings we achieve with GE will be scalable and applicable to other similar healthcare systems. This is truly exciting for Mission and the industry.”Mission Health and GE Healthcare will work in partnership to solve the system’s most complex challenges, delivering over $40 million in savings for Mission Health over the course of the relationship, including:First of a Kind, Co-created Innovation Collaboration: Mission Health and GE Healthcare will co-develop, pilot and deploy transformational healthcare solutions focused initially on two areas: optimizing imaging experience and utilization, and smoothing patient care transitions.Imaging: The focus will be on supporting a patient’s ability to make informed choices based upon key variables such as comparative costs and wait times while providing rapid results. From the provider perspective, the focus will be on streamlining the complex process of getting patients to the right imaging modality, at the right time, in the right place across the system while balancing capacity and availability.Care Transitions: The approach will leverage predictive modeling and other analytics to ensure that the patient receives the right care in the right setting with the right technology to maximize patient outcomes, experience and minimize costs.By leveraging GE’s deep technology, consulting, software, IT and workflow expertise and Mission’s in-depth clinical experience and “real-world learning laboratory”, Mission and GE Healthcare will help shape the next generation of technology, tools and processes to support healthcare’s transformation. This is less about one product or capability and more broadly aligned around how technology and services can work together to deliver outcomes for patients. Many of the findings and solutions developed through this collaboration can be transferred and used by systems nationwide.1Key areas of operational focus within Mission Health include:Radiology Optimization: Imaging is a core component of many service lines and care plans – yet in most organizations it is optimized or structured to function as a central backbone of care delivery. A systematic focus on imaging/radiology drives system-wide efficiency by improving speed to diagnosis, increasing asset utilization, reducing unnecessary retakes, reducing overall care costs and reducing waiting time for patients and clinicians system-wide. As care shifts to a value-based model, radiology must transform from a simple revenue or cost center to one that actively supports risk-based care models and helps Mission achieve its goal of providing same-day, cost-effective care.System-wide Bedside Monitoring Transformation: Mission Health is replacing its bedside monitoring and telemetry at all seven facilities to support rapidly increasing inpatient acuity, reduce internal and cross-facility transfers, and provide seamless care regardless of site. The new monitoring platform will ensure that all equipment is interconnected and that data is readily available to the clinician in the moments that matter most. By providing immediate access to critical data, especially in areas like the emergency department, caregivers can improve patient safety and speed to diagnosis and reduce patient wait times, reduce false positives and optimize patient placement, keeping patients close to home as much as possible.Radiology and Biomedical Services with Asset Optimization: GE Healthcare will assume responsibility for servicing diagnostic and biomedical equipment at Mission Health. This will drive standardization, consistency and overall increased reliability and quality of care.This relationship is the culmination of a significant investment by GE Healthcare Partners, the management consulting arm of GE Healthcare.For more information:, FacebookTwitterLinkedInPrint分享 Feature | Information Technology | July 31, 2019 | By Greg Freiherr How Smart Devices Can Improve Efficiency Innovation is trending toward improved efficiency — but not at the expense of patient safety, according to… read more Body language expert Traci Brown spoke at the AHRA 2019 meeting on how to identify when a person is not being honest by their body language.

DocMagic Capabilities Available Through LendingQBDocMagic Capabilities Available Through LendingQB

first_img “”LendingQB””:, a California-based company that provides loan origination software, and “”DocMagic””:, a California-based creator of document production technology, have teamed together to offer a more seamless approach to loan origination. [IMAGE]DocMagic’s document preparation functions, including eDelivery and eSigning, are embedded into LendingQB’s loan origination system. [COLUMN_BREAK]LendingQB noticed its users spent “”entirely too much time keying data and changing loan information in the document provider’s system, and then having to go back and reconcile the data in our LOS,”” according to Binh Dang, company president. “”This might about to just a few minutes of effort per loan, but when calculated across multiple users and files, it becomes a substantial loss of productivity,”” Dang added. With DocMagic technology embedded directly in the LendingQB system, users do not have to switch back and forth between systems and re-enter the same information more than once. This not only cuts down on wasted time but also eliminates opportunities for errors. The new solution ensures compliance with all state and federal regulations, according to the two companies. “”The tight integration we have with LendingQB allows lenders to generate accurate compliant documents the first time ├â┬ó├óÔÇÜ┬¼├óÔé¼┼ô every time ├â┬ó├óÔÇÜ┬¼├óÔé¼┼ô while remaining in their native system of record, thus ensuring data consistency,”” said Steve Ribultan, DocMagic’s director of business development.

Senate Banking Leaders Unveil Proposal for Housing Finance ReformSenate Banking Leaders Unveil Proposal for Housing Finance Reform

first_img Fannie Mae Freddie Mac Politics Senate Banking Committee 2014-03-11 Tory Barringer in Daily Dose, Featured, Government, Headlines, News, Secondary Market Updated to include additional industry comments.The leaders of the Senate Banking Committee announced Tuesday plans to move forward on a new proposal to wind down Fannie Mae and Freddie Mac in favor of a new government backstop for private financiers.According to committee chairman Tim Johnson (D-South Dakota) and ranking member Mike Crapo (R-Idaho), the newly unveiled reform proposal is the result of months of exploratory hearings, negotiations, and drafting work from members on both sides of the aisle.“There is near unanimous agreement that our current housing finance system is not sustainable in the long-term and reform is necessary to help strengthen and stabilize the economy,” Johnson said. “This bipartisan effort will provide the market the certainty it needs, while preserving fair and affordable housing throughout the country.”The proposal builds on a bill introduced last year by Sens. Bob Corker (R-Tennessee) and Mark Warner (D-Virginia), keeping as its base the eventual elimination of Fannie Mae and Freddie Mac and installation of a Federal Mortgage Insurance Corporation (FMIC), which would be modeled after FDIC and which would assist private creditors with losses after the first 10 percent.Also included in the proposal is a provision requiring strong underwriting standards that would mirror the Consumer Financial Protection Bureau’s qualified mortgage definition and would set a phased-in down payment requirement of 5 percent—except for first-time borrowers, who would be required to pay 3.5 percent.Finally, other provisions in the outlined plan call for the elimination of affordable housing goals (to be replaced with funds created through a small FMIC user fee) and the formation of a mutual cooperative owned by small lenders to ensure institutions of all size have access to the secondary market.“This agreement moves us closer to ending the five-year status quo and beginning the wind down of Fannie and Freddie while protecting taxpayers with strong private capital, building the components for a stable secondary market and avoiding repeating the mistakes of the past,” Crapo said.With Johnson and Crapo’s draft not yet complete, it remains to be seen how the proposal will fare in front of the largely Democratic Senate and the Republican-controlled House.On the industry side, responses seemed positive, with Mortgage Bankers Association (MBA) president and CEO David Stevens saying the announcement “reinforces the immediate need to address GSE reform in a substantive, transparent way.”“Chairman Johnson and Ranking Member Crapo are to be commended for coming together in a bi-partisan fashion and advancing a comprehensive solution to improve the function of the secondary mortgage market in a way that engages private capital and reduces risk for taxpayers,” he added.Also adding their praise were the Securities Industry and Financial Markets Association (SIFMA) and the National Association of Home Builders (NAHB), who each pledged their support to secondary market reform efforts, and Corker, who said he is “pleased the Banking Committee is demonstrating their commitment to this effort by putting pen-to-paper and releasing a set of principles based on the bill we introduced.”Perhaps less enthusiastic would be Fannie and Freddie’s investors, who have sued the government, urged corporate changes, and even offered to buy parts of the GSEs’ businesses in hopes of seeing returns now that both enterprises are profiting again.
