Brian Manley Is The Sole Finalist To Lead The Austin Police Department

first_imgGABRIEL C. PÉREZ / KUTIntermin Austin Police Chief Brian Manley is the sole finalist to lead APD on a permanent basis.Austin is one step closer to getting a new police chief.City Manager Spencer Cronk said Brian Manley is the sole candidate to take over the reins at the Austin Police Department. Manley served as the longtime second-in-command to his predecessor, Art Acevedo, and was tapped to serve as interim chief after Acevedo’s departure in November 2016. Manley’s investigation of a series of bombings in Austin last month garnered praise from city officials and amplified calls for him to take over on a permanent basis. News of the nomination was first reported by the Austin American-Statesman. Those calls were echoed this morning by Travis County Sheriff Sally Hernandez, who threw her support behind Manley’s nomination as permanent chief.“His steadfastness as a leader has endeared him not only to those of us who live here, but to people far beyond our famous Austin City Limits,” she said in a statement.But Chris Harris, a campaigns coordinator for the criminal justice reform group Grassroots Leadership, said residents of the city’s East Side – especially people of color – saw law enforcement’s handling of the bomb investigation differently.“It definitely starts with how Anthony House was portrayed initially,” he said, “and I think there are still questions about how that impacted the investigation.”House died March 2 when a bomb exploded on his porch. Police initially thought his death was an isolated event and that it was possible he made the bomb himself and accidentally set it off.Harris called it “odd” that Cronk asked for community input after naming Manley the sole finalist. Grassroots Leadership and other groups have urged the city to take its time in appointing a new chief and to open up the vetting process to the public. Harris told KUT last month the city should seek public comment on Manley’s hire.“If we don’t take the opportunity to get whomever will be the next chief to be on record as supporting policies that reflect the values of the community,” Harris said, “then we’ve lost an extremely valuable opportunity to ensure we improve our police force.”In response to those calls, Cronk has scheduled two community input meetings in May to get feedback on Manley’s potential hire. Cronk’s office also set up an online survey for Austinites to provide feedback on the search. After the public input process, Cronk will decide whether to hire Manley or open up a national search to find the next head of the Austin Police Department. “I want this process to be open and transparent,” Cronk said in a statement. “I am confident that by taking some additional time, Austin will benefit in the long run and we will get the very best candidate for the job.” Sharelast_img read more

Hitachi Maxell announces Air Voltage wireless charger for iPad2

Instead, the base itself is plugged in, as is done with say, a wireless router and it then charges the device using the “electric field coupling method” which is where electricity is moved from the charger to the device via the creation of an electric field that is generated between the two. Electrodes in the cover pick up the electricity and transfer it to the AC input port on the iPad2. The system has been developed for Hitachi Maxwell by Murata Manufacturing Co Ltd. Because the electricity is passed via the air, it is a wireless system, despite the fact that it appears to the user to be otherwise since they have to place their iPad2 on the base in order for it t be recharged.The cover (black or white) comes in two parts, top and bottom. To put it on, the iPad2 is slipped into the bottom part then the top half is slipped on till the two parts join. The back is a full cover, and the front looks like a picture frame. The whole works is then set on the base either horizontally or vertically. The iPad2 can be used while it is being recharged just as when using a regular plug-in AC adaptor.Though a price has not yet been set for the Air Voltage, industry analysts expect it will sell for around $200, though initially it will only be for sale in Japan. What’s not clear is whether users will be willing to accept a change of appearance to their brilliantly designed iPad2, by placing a cover on it, merely for the convenience of not having to plug it in to recharge it. Explore further (PhysOrg.com) — Hitachi Maxell Ltd has announced that it will release the “Air Voltage” a system for recharging the Apple iPad2 sans cable on November 25th. Comprised of the “energy stand” and “energy cover” for the iPad2, the two pieces together replace the AC adapter that comes with the iPad2. To recharge the iPad2, a user slips the energy cover onto it then sets the whole works on the stand where it is recharged in the normal amount of time, i.e. about three hours for a full charge.last_img read more

High iron levels may help lower cholesterol

first_imgPeople with high iron levels are not only protected against anaemia but are also less likely to have high cholesterol, according to a global study. The researchers from Imperial College London also found that too much iron in body may increase the risk of bacterial skin infections. The study looked at the role that iron plays in 900 diseases, uncovering impact of both low and high iron levels.Researchers used data from nearly 500,000 people. Iron deficiency is well documented, with about 1.2 billion people worldwide living with anaemia, researchers said. Around 25 to 65 per cent of differences between individuals in iron levels are due to genetic factors, according to Beben Benyamin, from Imperial College London. Also Read – Add new books to your shelf”We used a statistical method, called Mendelian randomisation that employs genetic data to better estimate the causal effect of iron status on 900 diseases and conditions. Through this, we found a link between excess iron and a reduced risk of high cholesterol,” Benyamin said. “This could be significant given that raised cholesterol is a major factor in cardiovascular disease and stroke, causing around 2.6 million deaths each year,” said Benyamin. Also Read – Over 2 hours screen time daily will make your kids impulsiveHowever, high iron levels could also lead to a greater risk of bacterial skin infections. Previous studies have found that bacteria need iron to survive and flourish, but the study is the first to use large scale population data to support the link between iron overload and bacterial skin infections, researchers said. Cellulitis affects around 21 million people each year, resulting in more than 17,000 deaths around the world, they said. “We identified the previously established protective effect of higher iron status on traits related to anaemia, and further showed protective effects related to risk of high cholesterol levels and detrimental effects on risk of skin and soft tissue infections,” said Dipender Gill from Imperial College London. Clinical trials have been undertaken to manipulate iron status in anaemic patients but, to date, no trials have targeted iron levels to prevent or treat skin infections or regulate cholesterol, researchers further said.last_img read more

Is a December Rate Hike Off the Table

first_img November 9, 2016 542 Views in Daily Dose, Data, Featured, News Donald Trump Federal Funds Target Rate Federal Reserve 2016-11-09 Seth Welborn The election of Donald Trump as president could mean that a heretofore widely forecasted rate hike by the Federal Reserve in December might not happen.The consensus following the release of the October employment situation from the Bureau of Labor Statistics was that a rate hike will take place at the Federal Open Market Committee’s December 14 meeting. While some in the industry still believe it could happen, others are not so sure, largely due to volatility in financial markets both overseas and in the U.S.Mark Zandi, Chief Economist with Moody’s Analytics, said that Trump’s plans for tax cuts and for renegotiating foreign trade agreements “raises the odds that the Fed will not move in December,” according to Reuters. Zandi’s team at Moody’s believes that possible immigration reform by Trump and could drive inflation up, which in turn would prompt aggressive moves by the Fed on interest rates—which could lead to a recession.“Uncertainty tends to drives investors toward safe bets, such as US bonds, which pushes down mortgage rates and makes borrowing cheaper,” Trulia Chief Economist Ralph McLaughlin said. “This happened during Brexit as the world looked to a stable U.S. economy for safe harbor, but there’s an important difference between Brexit and a Trump victory: the US economy now looks less safe because we don’t know Trump’s policies toward trade. This is actually pushed bond yields higher this morning as investors hold off on purchasing U.S. bonds. At the same time, mortgage rates are falling because investors are seeing safe yields in U.S. mortgage backed securities, reflecting their confidence in the relative safety of the U.S. housing market. Furthermore, the Fed is likely to delay a December rate hike because of global economic turmoil.”Donald Selkin, chief market strategist at National Securities in New York, told Reuters, “His tax cuts could open up a huge increase in the budget deficit and his trade sanctions could interrupt world trade. This could put us in a recession.”Not everyone believes that a December rate hike is out of the question, however.“It looks as though rates will fall, but the market moves today are already indicating that financial markets are pondering that the Trump effect could be positive for the economy,” Realtor.com Chief Economist Jonathan Smoke said. “We have almost five weeks before the December Federal Open Market Committee (FOMC) meeting, which will give the market plenty of time to digest the potential outcomes. While the market is now indicating a reduced probability of a short-term rate hike at that meeting, the Fed has repeatedly indicated that they would be data-driven in their decision. So, if markets calm down and November employment data look solid on December 2, a rate hike could still happen.”Rick Sharga, Chief Marketing Officer with Ten-X, stated, “I don’t believe that there will be any significant changes to interest rates, at least in the near term, since the underlying fundamentals that have led us into a low interest rate environment haven’t changed. Interest rates are driven more by U.S. Treasury yields, which will continue to be impacted by the amount of foreign capital pouring in as investors look for safe havens from the volatility of foreign markets. Longer term, it’s likely that we’ll see the Fed raise rates in December, and probably two or three times next year. That, and Trump’s desire to bring private capital back into the mortgage market in a meaningful way, will likely cause a modest increase in interest rates over time.”center_img Share Is a December Rate Hike Off the Table?last_img read more

EarlyStage Mortgage Delinquency Falls to Lowest Since 2000

first_img Share Mortgage delinquency rates were down in the month March, according to CoreLogic, a global property information, analytics, and data-enabled solutions provider. In their monthly Loan Performance Insights Report, nationally March showed 4.4 percent of mortgages in some stage of delinquency, meaning 30 or more days past due, including foreclosure. This is an overall 0.8 percentage point decline compared to 2016’s March numbers when overall delinquency rates were 5.2 percentSimilar to the delinquency rate, the foreclosure inventory rate, which measures the share of mortgages in some stage of the foreclosure process was 0.8 percent compared to March 2016 when it was 1 percent. Down from March 2016’s 2.7 percent, mortgages 90 days or more past due, known as the serious delinquency rate, was 2.1 percent, the lowest level since November 2007.“Dropping delinquency and foreclosure rates reflect the beneficial impact of stringent post-crisis underwriting standards as well as better fundamentals such as higher employment, household formation and home price gains,” said Frank Martell, President and CEO of CoreLogic. “Looking ahead, we expect these positive trends to continue as the industry shifts its focus toward solving supply shortages and looming affordability crises in an increasing number of markets.”On the opposite end of the spectrum, early-stage delinquencies, or 30-59 days past due, fell to 1.7 percent in March 2017, down from March 2016’s 1.9 percent. According to CoreLogic Chief Economist Dr. Frank Nothaft, this is the lowest rate for early-stage mortgages of any month since January 2000.Mortgages that were 60-89 days past due in March 2017 was 0.59 percent, a hair down from 0.63 percent in March 2016.CoreLogic analyzes transition rates due to the volatile nature of early-stage delinquencies. They found that the share of transitioned mortgages from current to 30-days past due was 0.6 percent in March 2017, only a 0.1 percent decline from March 2016—lowest for any month since January 2000. For comparison, in January 2007 before in the financial crisis, the current-to-30-day transition rate was 1.2 percent peaking in November 2008 at 2 percent. in Daily Dose, Data, Featured, News Early-Stage Mortgage Delinquency Falls to Lowest Since 2000center_img Mortgage Delinquencies 2017-06-13 Brianna Gilpin June 13, 2017 538 Views last_img read more
