Slumping oil prices to hit home prices in Calgary in 2015 ReMax

TORONTO — Slumping oil prices are likely to impact Calgary’s real estate market in the coming year, causing home prices to slow their rapid acceleration in Alberta’s largest city, according to a report by realtor group Re/Max.The average sale price of a Calgary home is expected to rise by only three per cent in 2015 to $497,500 after shooting up six per cent in 2014, as more buyers are expected to sit on the sidelines to see if the recent slump in oil prices will make houses cheaper.“Calgary had a significant run-up over the last few years, so it’s becoming more of a balanced market as opposed to a slowing down of the market per se,” said Gurinder Sandhu, executive vice-president, Re/Max Ontario Atlantic.A booming oil sector has helped drive immigration to the city in recent years, fuelling demand for homes. However, crude oil prices have tumbled roughly 35 per cent from their mid-summer highs due to a strong U.S. dollar, weaker demand and a glut of global supply.The decline in oil prices has already caused Calgary’s real estate market to become less “red hot,” said Sandhu. But unless low oil prices persist for a prolonged period, home prices in Calgary are unlikely to decline.How to play oil prices from a real estate perspectiveToronto house prices’ heady gains expected to continue into 2015Why IMF can’t stop worrying about Canada’s so-called housing bubble“It would have to be a sustained, long-term depression of oil prices to the point where it would have to start impacting jobs and the overall economy, and we’re not anticipating that for 2015,” he said.Meanwhile, higher inventory levels in many cities, and in some places a switch to more affordable condominiums, are among factors expected to contribute to significantly smaller price increases across Canada next year, with average prices anticipated to rise a modest 2.5 per cent nationally in 2015 compared with a 6.2 per cent increase in 2014.Even the hot markets of Vancouver and Toronto are expected to see a significant slowing in price increases, with the average residential sale price set to climb just three per cent in the Great Vancouver area to $863,600 from $834,400 in 2014 when prices went up 7.3 per cent.Likewise, the Greater Toronto Area is forecast to see a four per cent price increase to an average of $589,100, compared with an 8.3 per cent increase in 2014 to $566,400.But immigration to major Canadian cities will continue to fuel demand for housing and offset the impact of rising interest rates, which are expected to increase in late 2015, Sandhu said.“We’re not expecting any dramatic change in housing (prices),” said Sandhu. “We’re expecting some moderation, probably a little more balancing out of the housing market.”Elsewhere across the country, price increase are expected to be below the national average in most cities in Atlantic Canada, with the exception of Moncton, N.B., where the average sale price is forecast to rise six per cent to $187,500.Average prices in Montreal are forecast to rise one per cent to $332,600 and by 1.5 per cent in Quebec City to $289,800, while prices in Winnipeg and Saskatoon are forecast to remain static at $285,800 and $333,900 respectively, according to the Re/Max outlook.Regina is expected to see the average price rise four per cent to $346,500, with a similar percentage increase to $389,000 in Edmonton.Kelowna, B.C., is expected to experience the biggest percentage increase in prices in 2015 among larger Canadian centres, up seven per cent to $458,000 on top of a 7.8 per cent increase in 2014. read more

Telesat restores Anik F2 satellite looks for cause of 17hour outage

by The Canadian Press Posted Oct 3, 2016 7:58 am MDT Last Updated Oct 3, 2016 at 12:30 pm MDT AddThis Sharing ButtonsShare to TwitterTwitterShare to FacebookFacebookShare to RedditRedditShare to 電子郵件Email OTTAWA – Telesat says it has restored service at its Anik F2 communications satellite, about 17 hours after a “highly unusual” outage that began Sunday afternoon.The satellite provides direct-to-home television, telephone service and Internet across Canada and the United States.Telesat says all of the Anik F2’s services were affected by the outage, which began 5 p.m. ET on Sunday and ended early Monday afternoon.The Ottawa-based company says the satellite is now performing normally and all of its subsystems appear healthy but the cause of the outage is unclear.A Bell Canada spokeswoman said earlier that the outage affected its services in northern Ontario and northern Quebec, Nunavut, Northwest Territories and Yukon.Telesat is a former subsidiary of Bell Canada’s parent (TSX:BCE) that was sold nearly 10 years ago.It’s now owned by a U.S. company and a Canadian pension plan.“Satellite anomalies like the one that affected Telesat’s Anik F2 yesterday are highly unusual. Telesat is continuing to investigate the root cause of the anomaly and will advise affected customers as more details become known,” the company said in a brief statement Monday.

US study hails second generation achievement

first_imgA recent study in the United States shows that second-generation immigrant students perform better academically than first generation and third generation immigrant students.Second generation migrants outperformed first generation students on standardised tests and also earned better grades than their third generation equivalents.The research was carried out at the University of Washington and is believed to be the first comprehensive review undertaken on immigrant achievement in the US.According to the US Census Bureau, immigrants make up 25 per cent of the US population that is younger than 18 years.Five decades of research found that, unsurprisingly, possibly as a result of optimistic attitudes of their parents and improved access to resources, the second generation of immigrants performs better in school than the first.However, second generation immigrants (students born in the US with at least one foreign-born parent) were found to have a distinct advantage over both first generation (students born outside the US) and third-or-later-generation students (those born in the US with US-born parents).However, the advantage ‘gap’ differs from community to community. The immigrant advantage was stronger for Asian American youth than for other immigrants, perhaps because many Asian immigrants come to the US with more resources than others.Overall, the researchers said that immigrant students perform better because of their positive values. Immigrants compare their situations to those still living in their native country, allowing them to be positive about their situation. The sacrifices that their parents made to give them a better life, as well as high expectations from parents, were also key motivators.Source: Mylien Duong, University of Washington Facebook Twitter: @NeosKosmos Instagramlast_img read more

Original NBA Jam Gets Modded to Have Modern Roster

first_img If you frequented arcades in the early 90’s then you no doubt played a ton of NBA Jam. The title (along with its various home console ports) was one of the most fun basketball games ever made. Sadly, the franchise is somewhat on the erratic side, and it is rare when a new game is released (the last one came out in 2011). The NBA2K series is all well and good, but the world could certainly use an NBA Jam that features current players.A new official NBA Jam may not see the light of day anytime soon. Thankfully, the original game has been modded by Hogs with a Blog to have a modern roster. This includes players like LeBron James and Steph Curry. Though the game features modern players, it still has the old logos and team names. It also has classic players like Michael Jordan, Larry Bird, Patrick Ewing, and Kobe Bryant.One of the more fun aspects of the old NBA Jam games were the weird guest players. People such as Bill Clinton, Prince Charles, Will Smith, and Marv Albert were all selectable secret characters. This modded version includes Kanye West, Donald Trump, and (not surprisingly) Harambe.Personally speaking, I think this mod is brilliant. I’ve been a fan of NBA Jam since it made its debut so seeing this brings me a great deal of pleasure. I still prefer the old-school rosters (because I’m old and don’t watch modern basketball), but I do appreciate seeing fans updating the game to reflect the current NBA lineup. I also have to give them props for including wacky modern-day celebrities like Kanye West and Donald Trump.NBA Jam 2017 is playable via a SNES emulator.

Roadside pressure cooker prompts Vancouver bomb squad response closure of I205 onramp

first_imgThe southbound Interstate 205 onramp at Mill Plain Boulevard was shut down for several hours Monday due to a pressure cooker left on the side of the road.Washington State Department of Transportation issued a traffic alert about 10 a.m. stating the onramp would be closed due to debris at Milepost 28.3 of the freeway.The Vancouver Police Department deployed its Metro Explosive Disposal Unit to check out the pressure cooker,according to a VPD tweet.The police department’s bomb squad took possession of the cooker, “which was deemed not to be a threat,” spokeswoman Kim Kapp said in an email.“We don’t know how it got there,” she said.The onramp reopened Monday afternoon.Pressure cookers have been used to create improvised explosive devices, including the bombing last year at the Manchester Arena in England, as well as the 2013 Boston Marathon bombing.last_img read more

Logitech plans new division

first_imgo Previously: Logitech announced plans in March to move its Vancouver office to Camas.o What’s new: The company will open a new smart-phone accessory division at its new location.o What’s next: The new division will start hiring a team to develop its new product line.CAMAS — Logitech International plans to open a new smart-phone accessory division at its new Camas offices, the company announced Thursday. The Swiss electronics company, with U.S. headquarters in Fremont, Calif., moved its audio division three weeks ago from Columbia Tech Center in Vancouver to a vacant 40,000-square-foot space at the Camas Meadows Corporate Center.Logitech, which employs 100 here, designs and sells audio accessories such as headsets and speakers for computers and other electronic devices. Adding those accessories to smart phones, such as Android-based mobile phones or Apple’s iPhones, is a natural progression of the product line, said Mark Schneider, vice president and general manager of Logitech’s Audio Business Unit. Vice President and General Manager Bruce Lancaster will move from Fremont next month to run the new division and has already hired two employees, Schneider said. Schneider expects the division to hire several more workers to develop the new product line in coming months, though he declined to provide a total. The recent relocation to Camas Meadows leaves plenty of room to grow and the firm plans to take advantage of that, he said.“It’s good for Camas. The jobs it brings in are high-paying and it’s broadening our base from manufacturing to a technology base,” said Brent Erickson, executive director of the Camas-Washougal Chamber of Commerce.last_img read more

Mojo Visions miniature display actually made me excited about AR

first_img Tags 0 Google HP HTC Microsoft Samsung When you think of cutting-edge displays, you probably picture a giant modular screen or even a rollable TV. Mojo Vision has just showed me the complete opposite: a tiny monochrome display measuring half a millimeter across that I can only see under a microscope.The Silicon Valley startup is working on what it calls “invisible computing” technology. Rather than constantly being distracted by having a phone in your face all the time, or the friction of an AR or VR headset, Mojo Vision says this tech can help you be more present and engaged with the real world. So if you get a notification or need to quickly access information, you’ll be able to see it at a glance.This miniature, 14,000-ppi display isn’t an actual product — yet. Mojo Vision is keeping quiet on how the display will eventually be used, but Steve Sinclair, Mojo Vision’s senior vice president of product and marketing tells me “we’re building something pretty audacious.” With a density of 200 million pixels per square inch, he says it’s perfect for the application the company is trying to build.Instead of augmented reality devices like the Magic Leap One or Microsoft Hololens, which have a display inside a bulky headset, this technology could be placed very close to the eye. Its hexagonal shape also gives me a pretty good idea of where this might finally end up. A previous CNET report indicated that this mystery product is likely to be contact lenses.To the naked eye, however, this display looks like nothing more than a miniature green dot. It’s not even the size of a pinhead. But under a microscope, it becomes clear I’m looking at something big. Staring down into the scope, I adjust the focus and see a quick looped clip of Rick Astley’s Never Gonna Give You Up.I’ve just been Rickrolled by the world’s tiniest display. The text I saw on the display under the microscope. Mojo Vision There’s also a loop of images and short video clips: A quick GIF of Princess Leia, an image of Albert Einstein and finally some stylized text. To my surprise, I can read every word clearly.This MicroLED display has a pixel density that’s about 300 times greater than your standard phone screen. It’s also much denser than those displays found on other VR headsets like the HTC Vive Pro. MicroLED is also used by Samsung in its high-end TV called The Wall and can deliver higher brightness levels than other display technologies such as OLED.Many big tech companies are pushing hard on AR and VR technology, with Google, Samsung and Facebook already in the race. Even Apple is rumored to be working on a headset that may debut in 2020. Augmented reality places objects like text, graphics or other elements in your field of vision, overlaid onto an image of the real world. You can use it for walking directions in Google Maps, or for playing games in Snapchat where you score points by catching virtual eggs in your mouth.Mojo Vision wouldn’t give me an indication of when we’re likely to see their final product come to market or how much it would potentially cost. There’s certainly prestige within the company, with former Google, Apple and HP veterans among its ranks, which makes this tiny display all the more intriguing as to where it could go next.”We’re actually working on pixels that are even smaller than this,” Sinclair says. “Our goal is to eventually try and match the resolution of the human eye.” Post a comment Wearable Tech Share your voicelast_img read more

Fact Check 4 Questions Kaine Pence Face Heading Into The VP Debate

first_img Share Mandel Ngan/AFP/Getty Images via NPRGov. Mike Pence, R-Ind.,left, and Sen. Tim Kaine, D-Va., will face off tonight during this campaign’s only vice presidential debate, at Longwood University in Farmville, Va.This evening’s face-off between the 2016 vice presidential hopefuls certainly won’t have the pizzazz — or inevitable enmity — that last week’s debate between Donald Trump and Hillary Clinton had.Virginia Democratic Sen. Tim Kaine and Indiana Republican Gov. Mike Pence are two mild-mannered, affable politicians who will certainly present themselves differently than their running mates. Moderator Elaine Quijano of CBS News will try to engage them in their only debate, at Longwood University in rural Farmville, Va., but ultimately their sparring is likely to revolve as much around the principal candidates as around the vice presidential contenders themselves.Houston Public Media’s Coverage of Election 2016Here are four questions each man faces ahead of the 9 p.m. ET debate Tuesday:1. Does anyone know who they are?This is the first time the vast majority of Americans will even lay eyes on either Pence or Kaine. According to an ABC News poll, 41 percent of Americans couldn’t name the GOP vice presidential candidate and 46 percent couldn’t name the Democratic one.Ultimately, that won’t matter. Their job is not to debate each other — it’s to score points against the presidential candidate on the other side. And although this will be the biggest audience either has ever had, the debate is not about them, or even their own readiness to be president. It’s all about Clinton and Trump.2. Will we see the opposite of the presidential debates? This is a year when the running mates are almost completely overshadowed by the outsize personalities at the top of the ticket. Kaine and Pence don’t have the sky-high negative ratings that Clinton or Trump have, and they haven’t generated anything close to the interest or controversy of past vice presidential candidates (like Sarah Palin in 2008).In fact, the two men couldn’t be more different from their running mates in many ways. Pence is as smooth and disciplined as his running mate is bombastic and unpredictable. Last week he introduced himself as “kind of a B-list Republican celebrity.” Meanwhile, Kaine is as amiable and as authentic (and sometimes even a little goofy) as Clinton is scripted.Both have also broken with the past role of vice presidential candidates as “attack dogs” — willing to deliver the barbs that their running mates won’t engage in. That’s partly because both Kaine and Pence are even-tempered politicians with sunny dispositions. Pence even publicly rejected negative campaigning on moral grounds and promised never to engage in personal attacks — quite the opposite of Trump.Both Clinton and Trump have shown they’re more than willing to engage in the knife fights often left to the vice presidential picks. So maybe this time, just maybe, the vice presidential debates could be a little more substantive than the first presidential debate was last week.3. How will each deal with his running mate’s controversies?Kaine has the task of trying to make Clinton seem more honest, trustworthy and likable than most voters think she is. He could also be asked to explain why she took paid speeches from Wall Street or set up her controversial private email server at the State Department.But Kaine’s task pales in comparison to Pence’s burden, akin to a “clean up on aisle 7.” Pence has repeatedly tried to sand down Trump’s rough edges, but he hasn’t always been in sync with the top of his ticket.On climate change, for example, Pence has said he believes human activity does play a role in global warming. Trump has said that climate change is a Chinese hoax (though he falsely denied tweeting that at the debate last week). Pence could also be asked to explain why Donald Trump lost almost a billion dollars in a business deal that may have helped him avoid taxes for almost two decades, according to a New York Times report over the weekend. And he’ll also surely be asked about Trump’s decision to double down on comments about former Miss Universe Alicia Machado after last week’s debate and to bring up former President Bill Clinton’s infidelities — and to even suggest over the weekend that Hillary Clinton may not have been faithful to her husband.Remember: Pence, who is just 57 and has long been seen as a rising GOP star, has his own political future to think about, and it will be worth watching to see how he deals with Trump’s myriad self-inflicted wounds.4. What will the VP debate accomplish? Pence and Kaine could set the stage for the next presidential debate, which will be held this Sunday, Oct. 9, in St. Louis, by delivering new lines of attack for their principals to use. Pence could deliver Trump’s anti-status quo message of change without the stream-of-consciousness distractions. Kaine could help Clinton lay out the positive message for herself that she’s struggled to articulate.Past vice presidential debates haven’t had much of an effect on the outcome of elections, but they do matter. The most memorable moment in recent vice presidential debates was in 1988 when Texas Democratic Sen. Lloyd Bentsen told Indiana GOP Sen. Dan Quayle he was “no Jack Kennedy.” Quayle went on to win the election and serve as vice president with George H.W. Bush, but his ambitions for higher office probably died that night on the debate stage. Both Kaine and Pence are young and, win or lose in this campaign, would like to have years in politics ahead of them.last_img read more

Power department urges govtrun hospitals to pay electricity dues

first_imgKolkata: State Power department has written to the Health department urging an immediate payment of around Rs 19 crore to clear off the outstanding electricity dues from various government-run hospitals across the state.After receiving a letter from West Bengal State Electricity Distribution Company Limited (WBSEDCL), the Health department has acted promptly asking the hospitals to clear off the dues.A senior health department official has instructed the principals and superintendents of the medical colleges and hospitals to look into the matter and arrange for payment of the outstanding dues.

December 4, 2017 — Materialise and Formlabs are collaborating to deliver a complete, cost-effective and easy-to-use solution for hospitals looking to start an in-house 3-D printing lab. The new offering combines the Materialise Mimics inPrint medical imaging software with Formlabs’ Form 2 professional-grade desktop 3-D printers. The components of this complete 3-D printing package facilitate the implementation of patient-specific care at an affordable price-per-print for quick return on investment.The financial, educational and clinical benefits of 3-D anatomical models for communication and surgical planning have been documented and discussed for years. However, the perceived barriers to developing an onsite 3-D print lab, including setup costs and high costs per part, have deterred some hospitals from employing this emerging technology.As the use of 3-D anatomical models rapidly progresses in the medical field, it has become a standard procedure and valuable tool for communicating complex surgical plans with patients. Once hospitals have adopted on-site 3-D printing, they are able to easily scale their operations as demand for anatomical models grows.For more information: www.materialise.com FacebookTwitterLinkedInPrint分享last_img read more

Lung cancer is unique in that there may be stigma associated with screening, as some smokers think that if cancer is detected, it would confirm they’ve made a bad lifestyle choice.”Lung cancer is the leading cause of death from cancer, with an estimated 154,040 deaths projected to occur in 2018 in the United States.1 The USPSTF recommends that people ages 55 to 80 years who are current or former heavy smokers (have smoked at least 30 cigarette pack-years) be screened for lung cancer using low-dose computed tomography (LDCT). Cigarette pack years are calculated by multiplying the number of packs of cigarettes smoked per day by the number of years the person smoked. In 2012, ASCO and the American College of Chest Physicians issued a joint guideline with these same recommendations.The study’s researchers gathered data from the 2016 American College of Radiology’s Lung Cancer Screening Registry on people who received LDCT at nearly 1,800 accredited screening sites. They compared that data to 2015 National Health Interview Survey estimates of eligible smokers who could be screened based on the USPSTF recommendations. The analysis of the data was based on four U.S. census regions in the country: Northeast, South, Midwest and West. The screening rate was calculated by dividing the number of LDCT scans by the number of smokers eligible for screening per USPSTF recommendations.The authors found that the South had the most accredited screening sites (663) and the highest numbers of smokers who were eligible for screening (3,072,095). Nonetheless, the screening rate in the South was only 1.6 percent, the second lowest in the country, whereas the West had the lowest rate at 1 percent and the lowest number of accredited screening sites (232). The highest screening rate was in the Northeast (3.5 percent), and the Midwest had the second-highest rate of 1.9 percent.Nationwide, a total of 1,796 accredited screening centers could have screened 7,612,975 eligible current and former heavy smokers, but only 141,260 people received LDCT screenings (the nationwide screening rate was 1.9 percent). By comparison, about 65 percent of women age 40 or older had a mammogram in 2015.Approximately 85 percent of the screened current smokers were offered smoking cessation resources, which was documented by providers prior to screening referral. The percentage of current and former heavy smokers offered cessation programs did not vary significantly by census region.The authors have already started looking at 2017 lung cancer screening rates, and, preliminarily, there is a small overall uptick in screening rates in 2017 across all regions.“This study makes a strong case that our country needs an effective public service campaign about encouraging lung cancer screening. Public service campaigns from the 1990s encouraged women to get mammograms, saving many lives in subsequent years. We need something similar to encourage current and former heavy smokers to get screened for lung cancer,” said ASCO President Bruce E. Johnson, M.D., FASCO.For more information: www.asco.orgRelated Lung Cancer ContentPhysicians, Patients Talking Less About Lung Cancer ScreeningVIDEO: Radiation Versus Surgery for Non-Small Cell Lung Cancer Videos | CT Angiography (CTA) | August 07, 2019 VIDEO: Walk Around of a Siemens Go.Top Dedicated Cardiac Scanner This is a quick walk around of the new Siemens Somatom Go.top cardiovascular edition compact computed tomography (CT) read more News | Colonoscopy Systems | August 06, 2019 Rise in Early Onset Colorectal Cancer Not Aligned With Screening Trends A new study finds that trends in colonoscopy rates did not fully align with the increase in colorectal cancer (CRC) in… read more Videos | CT Angiography (CTA) | August 07, 2019 VIDEO: Walk Around of a GE Cardiographe Dedicated Cardiac CT Scanner This is a quick walk around of the GE Healthcare Cardiographe dedicated cardiac CT system on display at the… read more Video Player is loading.Play VideoPlayMuteCurrent Time 0:00/Duration 5:23Loaded: 0%Stream Type LIVESeek to live, currently playing liveLIVERemaining Time -5:23 Playback Rate1xChaptersChaptersDescriptionsdescriptions off, selectedCaptionscaptions settings, opens captions settings dialogcaptions off, selectedAudio Trackdefault, selectedFullscreenThis is a modal window.Beginning of dialog window.
