US to impose antidumping duties of 24 plus on Canadianmade pipe

first_imgThe United States has opened a new battleground in its trade war with the world, announcing preliminary anti-dumping duties on large-diameter welded pipe from Canada and five other countries.The U.S. is to immediately begin collecting 24.38 per cent cash deposits on imports from Canada that were worth almost US$180 million in 2017, the U.S. Department of Commerce announced on Tuesday.The other countries being hit with duties are China, Greece, India, Korea, and Turkey, with penalties ranging from 3.45 per cent for Turkey to more than 132 per cent for China.India is the only country on the list that had greater exports of the pipe to the U.S. in 2017 than Canada, at US$295 million.The decision is “disappointing” but it affects only one of his members, said Joe Galimberti, president of the Canadian Steel Producers Association, which represents the $15-billion primary steel production industry here.He said the Canadian arm of Chicago-based Evraz North America is the only manufacturer of large-diameter welded pipe in Canada.Evraz did not immediately respond to a request for comment.A spokesman for Foreign Affairs Minister Chrystia Freeland said the department is in contact with the exporter targeted by the duties and will monitor the situation.“The United States has a $2-billion surplus in steel trade with Canada,” said Adam Austen in an email. “Canada buys more steel from the U.S. than any other country, accounting for more than 50 per cent of U.S. exports.”The U.S. Commerce department said it found that the six countries have sold pipe at less than fair value in the United States.“Commerce currently maintains 458 anti-dumping and countervailing duty orders which provide relief to American companies and industries impacted by unfair trade,” it said in a statement.Final duty determinations are to be announced in early November for China and India and in January for Canada and the other three countries.The department said enforcement of U.S. trade law is a primary focus of the Donald Trump administration, noting it has initiated 120 new investigations since the president came to office, more than double the previous administration.Trump slapped Canada and other allies with steel and aluminum duties last spring, which led to retaliatory levies from Ottawa.He has also made repeated threats to apply far more damaging tariffs on the deeply integrated automotive sector.Last week, Trump said the U.S. should harvest fallen trees from the forest floor, which he says are making wildfires in California worse, rather than import wood when “Canada is charging us a lot of money to bring their timber down into our country.”Follow @HealingSlowly on Twitter.last_img read more

FAA bringing back safety inspectors sidelined by shutdown

first_imgWASHINGTON — The Federal Aviation Administration says it has brought about 500 safety inspectors back to work and expects more to return next week, potentially easing strains on the aviation system amid a partial federal government shutdown.Most of the FAA’s 3,000 safety inspectors have been sidelined during the 22-day shutdown . But the agency is accelerating efforts to bring them back. Agency spokesman Gregory Martin didn’t provide specifics in an email to the Associated Press Saturday.Inspectors oversee and certify inspections by airline and repair-shop employees. They’re not considered essential employees who must work during shutdowns.The shutdown has hit aviation hard . About 10,000 FAA air traffic controllers are on the job but not getting paid.

Peacekeepers saved many lives despite challenges UN officials stress at years end

Sexual exploitation and abuseOne of the main challenges in peacekeeping operations has been grappling with allegations of sexual exploitation and abuse by UN peacekeepers. Earlier this year, Secretary-General António Guterres unveiled his strategy for eradicating the scourge, and appointed Jane Connors as the first Victims’ Rights Advocate. “It is about dignity for the victims, compassion, a real feeling of empathy, a feeling that they are not forgotten,” Ms. Connors said in early December. “That their hurt, their pain is acknowledged, and we do as much as we possibly can do to make their situation better.” It is about dignity for the victims, compassion, a real feeling of empathy, a feeling that they are not forgottenVictims’ Rights Advocate, Jane ConnorsMs. Connors made the comments during a visit to South Sudan, where four of last year’s 103 allegations were filed. This year, the UN recorded 54 allegations – roughly half the number. “This is a result of the many robust efforts put in place to train our personnel, raise awareness among communities on the risks associated with SEA [sexual exploitation and abuse], promote and enforce the zero-tolerance policy and partner with Member States,” said Mr. Khare. The new UN strategy to prevent sexual exploitation and abuse puts more pressure on governments to investigate and prosecute wrong-doing. In addition, 17 countries volunteered some $1.8 million for a trust fund to aid victims get medical, psycho-social, legal or socio-economic support. “We can see that information about allegations are coming more with less obstacle than before,” Mr. Lacroix said. “At the same time, we need to do more to fully implement the policy and it has to have strong awareness at every level.” Protecting the environmentUN peacekeeping is also managing its impact in another way within the countries that host its operations – by preserving natural resources and not damaging the environment during the physical deployments. “’Do no harm’ must include both communities and the resources upon which they depend: water, land, cultural heritage,” Mr. Khare said. Plans to reduce the peacekeeping footprint and energy consumption also saves time and resources, allowing peacekeeping missions to focus on implementing their core mandates. All UN peacekeeping operations this year launched Environmental Action Plans which have, for example, led to 80 wastewater treatment plans being installed in peacekeeping operations. “We are constantly looking into keeping our own house in order, and leave the place better than we found it,” said Mr. Khare.

We often do it under very difficult and stressful circumstances,” Under-Secretary-General for Peacekeeping Operations Jean-Pierre Lacroix said in a recent interview with UN News. We do protect civilians every day. We do save lives every day. We often do it under very difficult and stressful circumstancesMr. LacroixHe added that “many lives were saved” because of peacekeepers’ actions this year in the Central African Republic, the Democratic Republic of the Congo, Mali, South Sudan and other places.“I think it’s more than warranted to pay tribute to them and their achievements,” Mr. Lacroix said. “But certainly we have to work hard to overcome the challenges we are facing.” VIDEO: Under-Secretaries-General Jean-Pierre Lacroix and Atul Khare reflect on achievements and challenges for UN peacekeepers over 2017.Challenges in 2017One of the challenges facing UN peacekeepers, as they operate in increasingly complex and dangerous areas, is the need for better training and equipment, particularly when it comes to intelligence gathering and enhancing situational awareness.This includes the use of modern technologies, such as unmanned aerial services, radars and tethered balloons. The head of the UN Department of Field Support, Atul Khare, said the UN is also looking to borrow or purchase more equipment related to security reinforcements, accommodations, vehicles and communications tools, among others.In Mali, for example, one out of four military hospitals is without staff or equipment, and in the Central African Republic, one in three, he said.The needs also extend to gaps in working closely with local communities, which means that in some areas more peacekeepers are needed who speak French. “We must do even more on the side of prevention and risk mitigation when seeking to protect our colleagues. Providing for the safety and security of deployed personnel in volatile environments is an absolute necessity,” Mr. Khare told UN News.

Photo: MINUSMA/Harandane Dick Looking ahead to 2018If the year 2017 brought ambitious reform, then 2018 must be the year that these reforms are implemented, Mr. Lacroix said. He noted that this will be particularly important in the field, where colleagues must be informed and empowered to act. Mr. Khare echoed the idea that reforms are ongoing, noting that the goal is to “ensure that we are stronger in prevention, more agile in mediation, and more nimble, efficient and cost-effective in our operations.” He pointed to improved efficiency and effectiveness of peacekeeping, including also by strengthening engagement with Member States and regional organizations to better serve the most vulnerable people around the world. “We approach 2018 with a sense of hope. We will do our best to successfully implement these reforms and certainly we will do our best to support our colleagues in the field,” said Mr. Lacroix. read more

However, five unanswered points in as many minutes from Meath ensured they went into half time down by just a single point, 0-8 to 0-7.While Meath levelled briefly at the start of the second half, another twenty minute period without a score would prove their undoing as Armagh rattled off five unanswered scores of their own to stretch into a 15-10 lead with ten minutes remaining.

Energies renouvelables elles ont le vent en poupe en Espagne

first_imgEnergies renouvelables : elles ont le vent en poupe en EspagneEspagne – Le développement des énergies renouvelables a permis à la péninsule ibérique de produire 38% de son électricité en 2010. Cependant, la variabilité de cette production nécessite la mise en place d’un réseau suffisant pour ne pas gaspiller les excédents obtenus.Les conditions météorologiques peuvent entraîner d’énormes variations dans le rendement des énergies renouvelables. Ainsi, en Espagne, elles ont pu fournir jusqu’à 54% de l’électricité à certaines périodes de l’année, leur contribution descendant à seulement 0,5% dans les périodes les plus creuses. Si la voiture électrique tend à se développer comme on peut l’espérer, les surplus énergétiques éventuels ne seraient pas gaspillés mais pleinement utilisés.Projets et objectifs ambitieuxEn 2011 doit également débuter la construction du projet de Gérone, qui permettra d’ici 2014 de relier les réseaux espagnols et français. Ainsi, la production de l’énergie espagnole pourra être deux fois plus distribuée au reste du continent européen. Le président de Red Eléctrica, l’entreprise chargée du transport de l’électricité en Espagne, a évoqué le nouveau projet de connexion transfrontalière actuellement à l’étude. Celui-ci repose sur la mise en place d’un câble sous-marin traversant le golfe de Gascogne, dont le but sera d’acheminer en France les excédents de la production éolienne espagnole. Malgré les investissements énormes que nécessite la mise en place des énergies renouvelables, l’Espagne doit poursuivre ses efforts pour parvenir à obtenir son indépendance énergétique. Les objectifs fixés par le protocole de Kyoto imposent en effet au pays la production de 20% de son énergie finale par le biais des énergies renouvelables et ce, d’ici 2020.Le 18 septembre 2010 à 18:21 • Emmanuel Perrinlast_img read more

Hôpital 900 accidents médicaux par jour en France

first_imgHôpital : 900 accidents médicaux par jour en FranceLe Point vient de révéler les chiffres alarmants de l’Enquête nationale sur les événements indésirables liés aux soins (ENEIS). 900 accidents médicaux se produiraient chaque jour en France.Depuis 2004, année de la dernière Enquête nationale sur les événements indésirables liés aux soins (ENEIS), aucune amélioration n’a été enregistrée concernant les erreurs médicales à l’hôpital. C’est le constat inquiétant de la nouvelle ENEIS, qui a été menée avec plus de 8.000 patients dans 114 établissements différents. Elle recense entre  275.000 et 395.000 “événements indésirables graves” (EIG) par an. Selon les auteurs de l’enquête, au moins la moitié de ces accidents seraient évitables, car ils sont dus à des erreurs médicales.Sont pointés du doigt : des mauvaises prescriptions médicamenteuses, des actes chirurgicaux manqués, un déficit de communication entre professionnels de santé, une supervision insuffisante des collaborateurs en milieu hospitalier, des défaillances humaines… Ces manquements à la prise en charge sont responsables d’hospitalisations prolongées, de séquelles et même de décès.Le 26 novembre 2010 à 14:48 • Emmanuel Perrinlast_img read more

Inslee signs $4.2 billion capital budget, water bill

first_imgOLYMPIA — Gov. Jay Inslee on Friday signed both a $4.2 billion capital budget that pays for construction projects across the state, as well as a compromise bill on a contentious water issue that had stalled the budget for months.Inslee signed the so-called Hirst fix privately in his office, followed by public signings of the budget and accompanying bonds bill later in the afternoon.Before signing the measures, Inslee said the budget “puts thousands of Washingtonians to work, all across the state of Washington.”“We know this capital budget restarts hundreds of projects to expand and improve affordable housing, mental health facilities, schools, water systems, wild land forest health and so much more,” he said.The Senate and the House passed all of the measures Thursday night after reaching agreement on how to address a state Supreme Court decision known as Hirst involving the use of domestic wells in rural areas. They also quickly passed the construction spending plan that includes money for major projects across the state, including affordable housing, K-12 school buildings, mental health beds and public work projects.last_img read more

An Incredible Palace Made Entirely out of Pebbles

first_imgDeep in the heart of rural France, there stands an incredible building. The Palace Idéal du Facteur Cheval stands 45 feet (14 meters) high and 85 feet (26 meters) long, and is an elaborate piece of sculpture, adorned with carved animals and floral decorations. Drawing on inspiration from Hindu design and Gothic architecture, the Palace Idéal is a monument to the wonder of nature.However, this magnificent construction is rendered even more impressive when considering its history. The Palace Idéal was constructed single-handedly by an untrained postman, and is made entirely from pebbles that he collected on his daily rounds.Cheval’s Palais Idéal. Photo Credit Otourly CC BY SA 3.0According to Business Insider, Ferdinand Fernando Cheval was born in 1836 and lived and worked in Châteauneuf de Galaure, a rural village in southeastern France.He lived a simple and quiet life as a local postman, having left school at the age of 13. However, one day as he was making his daily mail rounds, he stumbled and tripped over a strangely shaped pebble.Ferdinand ChevalFascinated by the properties of the stone, Cheval began to remember a long forgotten dream of building his own palace. The unusual shape of the stone inspired him, and he returned later to the same spot, only to discover an entire hoard of similar strange rocks.According to Business Insider, he was so impressed with the beautiful samples of local sandstone that he felt compelled to do something extraordinary with them.The Palais Idéal, south side. Realized by the postman Ferdinand Cheval (Hauterives, France).He remarked in his diary, “It was a stumbling block shape so bizarre that I put it in my pocket to admire at my ease. The next day I went back to the same place. I found more stones, even more beautiful… I said to myself: since Nature is willing to do the sculpture, I will do the masonry and the architecture.”For 33 years, Cheval collected pebbles and brought them back to his home. He often worked at night, by the light of an oil lamp, collecting stones in his wheelbarrow. Gradually, piece-by-piece, he began to construct a lavish structure, originally called ‘The Temple of Nature’. He bound together each of the stones painstakingly with mortar and lime to make a cement.The starting point – the unusually-shaped stone that Cheval tripped over. Photo by Ursus CC BY SA 4.0The result was nothing short of a miracle. Cheval constructed an elaborate palace drawing on both European and Indian influences, adorned with sculpted animals, intricate pillars and columns, and a stunning terrace.He drew inspiration from the images and postcards he found on the mail that he delivered every day, conjuring a pleasure palace that was inspired by a wide variety of cultures and architectural styles.Cheval’s mausoleum. Photo by Wikilug CC BY SA 3.0Cheval’s success is all the more remarkable given that he had no formal training in any kind of masonry or architecture. According to Business Insider, he constructed the palace by himself, stone by stone, learning the skills he needed as he went along. As a result, the Palace is known as one of the finest examples of Naïve art in existence.When the Palace finally opened to the public in 1907, Cheval was delighted. Although it was initially regarded as a bizarre curiosity, it soon began to attract wider attention, particularly from surrealist artists such as Andre Breton. It was even the subject of an essay by Anaïs Nin.Palais Idéal du Facteur Cheval.Even when the Palace was finished, Cheval was not content to put down his wheelbarrow. He wished to be buried inside his epic structure, but French laws prevented him from making such a request in his will.As a result, he decided to build his own mausoleum, using the same design and principles as he had employed in the construction of his lavish palace.Cheval’s tomb stands a short distance from the palace, and was completed just one year before his death at the age of 88. It is known as the ‘Tomb of Silence and Endless Rest’, and rivals the Palace Idéal in its elaborate design and creativity.Read another story from us: Secrets of Japan’s Most Beautiful and Haunted CastleAfter a lifetime devoted to creating such marvelous monuments, endless rest is surely what this talented postman deserves.last_img read more

Quantum computing edge analytics and meta learning key trends in data science

first_imgWhen historians study contemporary notions of data in the early 21st century, 2018 might well be a landmark year. In many ways this was the year when Big and Important Issues – from the personal to the political – began to surface. The techlash, a term which has defined the year, arguably emerged from conversations and debates about the uses and abuses of data. But while cynicism casts a shadow on the brightly lit data science landcape, there’s still a lot of optimism out there. And more importantly, data isn’t going to drop off the agenda any time soon. However, the changing conversation in 2018 does mean that the way data scientists, analysts, and engineers use data and build solutions for it will change. A renewed emphasis on ethics and security is now appearing, which will likely shape 2019 trends. But what will these trends be? Let’s take a look at some of the most important areas to keep an eye on in the new year. Meta learning and automated machine learning One of the key themes of data science and artificial intelligence in 2019 will be doing more with less. There are a number of ways in which this will manifest itself. The first is meta learning. This is a concept that aims to improve the way that machine learning systems actually work by running machine learning on machine learning systems. Essentially this allows a machine learning algorithm to learn how to learn. By doing this, you can better decide which algorithm is most appropriate for a given problem. Find out how to put meta learning into practice. Learn with Hands On Meta Learning with Python. Automated machine learning is closely aligned with meta learning. One way of understanding it is to see it as putting the concept of automating the application of meta learning. So, if meta learning can help better determine which machine learning algorithms should be applied and how they should be designed, automated machine learning makes that process a little smoother. It builds the decision making into the machine learning solution. Fundamentally, it’s all about “algorithm selection, hyper-parameter tuning, iterative modelling, and model assessment,” as Matthew Mayo explains on KDNuggets. Automated machine learning tools What’s particularly exciting about automated machine learning is that there are already a number of tools that make it relatively easy to do. AutoML is a set of tools developed by Google that can be used on the Google Cloud Platform, while auto-sklearn, built around the scikit-learn library, provides a similar out of the box solution for automated machine learning. Although both AutoML and auto-sklearn are very new, there are newer tools available that could dominate the landscape: AutoKeras and AdaNet. AutoKeras is built on Keras (the Python neural network library), while AdaNet is built on TensorFlow. Both could be more affordable open source alternatives to AutoML. Whichever automated machine learning library gains the most popularity will remain to be seen, but one thing is certain: it makes deep learning accessible to many organizations who previously wouldn’t have had the resources or inclination to hire a team of PhD computer scientists. But it’s important to remember that automated machine learning certainly doesn’t mean automated data science. While tools like AutoML will help many organizations build deep learning models for basic tasks, for organizations that need a more developed data strategy, the role of the data scientist will remain vital. You can’t after all, automate away strategy and decision making. Learn automated machine learning with these titles: Hands-On Automated Machine LearningTensorFlow 1.x Deep Learning Cookbook Quantum computing Quantum computing, even as a concept, feels almost fantastical. It’s not just cutting-edge, it’s mind-bending. But in real-world terms it also continues the theme of doing more with less. Explaining quantum computing can be tricky, but the fundamentals are this: instead of a binary system (the foundation of computing as we currently know it), which can be either 0 or 1, in a quantum system you have qubits, which can be 0, 1 or both simultaneously. (If you want to learn more, read this article). What Quantum computing means for developers So, what does this mean in practice? Essentially, because the qubits in a quantum system can be multiple things at the same time, you are then able to run much more complex computations. Think about the difference in scale: running a deep learning system on a binary system has clear limits. Yes, you can scale up in processing power, but you’re nevertheless constrained by the foundational fact of zeros and ones. In a quantum system where that restriction no longer exists, the scale of the computing power at your disposal increases astronomically. Once you understand the fundamental proposition, it becomes much easier to see why the likes of IBM and Google are clamouring to develop and deploy quantum technology. One of the most talked about use cases is using Quantum computers to find even larger prime numbers (a move which contains risks given prime numbers are the basis for much modern encryption). But there other applications, such as in chemistry, where complex subatomic interactions are too detailed to be modelled by a traditional computer. It’s important to note that Quantum computing is still very much in its infancy. While Google and IBM are leading the way, they are really only researching the area. It certainly hasn’t been deployed or applied in any significant or sustained way. But this isn’t to say that it should be ignored. It’s going to have a huge impact on the future, and more importantly it’s plain interesting. Even if you don’t think you’ll be getting to grips with quantum systems at work for some time (a decade at best), understanding the principles and how it works in practice will not only give you a solid foundation for major changes in the future, it will also help you better understand some of the existing challenges in scientific computing. And, of course, it will also make you a decent conversationalist at dinner parties. Who’s driving Quantum computing forward? If you want to get started, Microsoft has put together the Quantum Development Kit, which includes the first quantum-specific programming language Q#. IBM, meanwhile, has developed its own Quantum experience, which allows engineers and researchers to run quantum computations in the IBM cloud. As you investigate these tools you’ll probably get the sense that no one’s quite sure what to do with these technologies. And that’s fine – if anything it makes it the perfect time to get involved and help further research and thinking on the topic. Get a head start in the Quantum Computing revolution. Pre-order Mastering Quantum Computing with IBM QX. Edge analytics and digital twins While Quantum lingers on the horizon, the concept of the edge has quietly planted itself at the very center of the IoT revolution. IoT might still be the term that business leaders and, indeed, wider society are talking about, for technologists and engineers, none of its advantages would be possible without the edge. Edge computing or edge analytics is essentially about processing data at the edge of a network rather than within a centralized data warehouse. Again, as you can begin to see, the concept of the edge allows you to do more with less. More speed, less bandwidth (as devices no longer need to communicate with data centers), and, in theory, more data. In the context of IoT, where just about every object in existence could be a source of data, moving processing and analytics to the edge can only be a good thing. Will the edge replace the cloud? There’s a lot of conversation about whether edge will replace cloud. It won’t. But it probably will replace the cloud as the place where we run artificial intelligence. For example, instead of running powerful analytics models in a centralized space, you can run them at different points across the network. This will dramatically improve speed and performance, particularly for those applications that run on artificial intelligence. A more distributed world Think of it this way: just as software has become more distributed in the last few years, thanks to the emergence of the edge, data itself is going to be more distributed. We’ll have billions of pockets of activity, whether from consumers or industrial machines, a locus of data-generation. Find out how to put the principles of edge analytics into practice: Azure IoT Development Cookbook Digital twins An emerging part of the edge computing and analytics trend is the concept of digital twins. This is, admittedly, still something in its infancy, but in 2019 it’s likely that you’ll be hearing a lot more about digital twins. A digital twin is a digital replica of a device that engineers and software architects can monitor, model and test. For example, if you have a digital twin of a machine, you could run tests on it to better understand its points of failure. You could also investigate ways you could make the machine more efficient. More importantly, a digital twin can be used to help engineers manage the relationship between centralized cloud and systems at the edge – the digital twin is essentially a layer of abstraction that allows you to better understand what’s happening at the edge without needing to go into the detail of the system. For those of us working in data science, digital twins provide better clarity and visibility on how disconnected aspects of a network interact. If we’re going to make 2019 the year we use data more intelligently – maybe even more humanely – then this is precisely the sort of thing we need. Interpretability, explainability, and ethics Doing more with less might be one of the ongoing themes in data science and big data in 2019, but we can’t ignore the fact that ethics and security will remain firmly on the agenda. Although it’s easy to dismiss these issues issues as separate from the technical aspects of data mining, processing, and analytics, but it is, in fact, deeply integrated into it. One of the key facets of ethics are two related concepts: explainability and interpretability. The two terms are often used interchangeably, but there are some subtle differences. Explainability is the extent to which the inner-working of an algorithm can be explained in human terms, while interpretability is the extent to which one can understand the way in which it is working (eg. predict the outcome in a given situation). So, an algorithm can be interpretable, but you might not quite be able to explain why something is happening. (Think about this in the context of scientific research: sometimes, scientists know that a thing is definitely happening, but they can’t provide a clear explanation for why it is.) Improving transparency and accountability Either way, interpretability and explainability are important because they can help to improve transparency in machine learning and deep learning algorithms. In a world where deep learning algorithms are being applied to problems in areas from medicine to justice – where the problem of accountability is particularly fraught – this transparency isn’t an option, it’s essential. In practice, this means engineers must tweak the algorithm development process to make it easier for those outside the process to understand why certain things are happening and why they aren’t. To a certain extent, this ultimately requires the data science world to take the scientific method more seriously than it has done. Rather than just aiming for accuracy (which is itself often open to contestation), the aim is to constantly manage that gap between what we’re trying to achieve with an algorithm and how it goes about actually doing that. You can learn the basics of building explainable machine learning models in the Getting Started with Machine Learning in Python video. Transparency and innovation must go hand in hand in 2019 So, there are two fundamental things for data science in 2019: improving efficiency, and improving transparency. Although the two concepts might look like the conflict with each other, it’s actually a bit of a false dichotomy. If we realised that 12 months ago, we might have avoided many of the issues that have come to light this year. Transparency has to be a core consideration for anyone developing systems for analyzing and processing data. Without it, the work your doing might be flawed or unnecessary. You’re only going to need to add further iterations to rectify your mistakes or modify the impact of your biases. With this in mind, now is the time to learn the lessons of 2018’s techlash. We need to commit to stopping the miserable conveyor belt of scandal and failure. Now is the time to find new ways to build better artificial intelligence systems.last_img read more

Refinances Decline in August Following a ThreeMonth Rise in Rates

first_img Refinances appear to be cooling off after volume levels decreased in August, while mortgage rates rose for three consecutive months through July, according to the Federal Housing Finance Agency’s (FHFA) August 2015 Refinance Report.The report showed that the average interest rate on a 30-year fixed rate mortgage declined to 3.91 percent in August.According to the FHFA, 7,496 refinances were completed through the Home Affordable Refinance Program (HARP) in August 2015, which brought the total to 3,350,410 since the program began.HARP volume accounted for 5 percent of total refinance volume in August, the report says.Borrowers with loan‐to‐value ratios greater than 105 percent accounted for 24 percent of the volume of HARP loans from the January 2015 to August 2015. On the other hand, 8 percent of the loans refinanced through HARP had a loan‐to‐value ratio greater than 125 percent.From January 2015 to August 2015, 29 percent of HARP refinances for underwater borrowers were for shorter‐term 15‐and 20‐year mortgages. These type of refinances build equity faster than traditional 30‐year mortgages.The report found that in Florida and Georgia, HARP refinances represented 12 or more percent of total refinances from January 2015 to May 2015. This was more than double the 5 percent of total refinances nationwide over the same period.FHFA also noted that borrowers that use the HARP program to refinance appear to have a lower delinquency rate compared to borrowers that are eligible for HARP but do not use the program.The FHFA’s Q2 Refinance Report showed that HARP refinances held steady during this quarter, nearly matching up with the number recorded in the first quarter.The report found that second quarter HARP refinances completed between April and June reached 31,561, a difference of 87 from the 31,648 HARP refinances completed from January through March. Additionally, HARP volume represented 5 percent of total refinance volume in the second quarter of 2015.The Mortgage Bankers Association (MBA) reported in August that mortgage applications received a 3.6 percent boost from refinance activity.”Concerns about the Chinese economy pushed interest rates down last week, resulting in a two basis point decline in thirty year fixed interest rate, bringing the rate down to its lowest since May 2015,” said Lynn Fisher, MBA’s VP of Research and Economics. “The pick-up in refinance activity was led by larger loan sizes on average, as continued investor interest drove jumbo interest rates down even further, by five basis points.”Click here to view the FHFA’s August 2015 Refinance Report. in Daily Dose, Data, Featured, Government, Market Studies, News October 14, 2015 510 Views August 2015 Refinance Report Federal Housing Finance Agency Home Affordable Refinance Program Mortgage Rates 2015-10-14 Staff Writercenter_img Share Refinances Decline in August Following a Three-Month Rise in Rateslast_img read more
