Western banks help Saudis raise 12 billion in bonds

LONDON — Saud Arabia’s oil company Aramco – the most profitable company in the world – has raised $12 billion in a bond issue that shows Western investors are keen to do business with the kingdom despite the scandal over the killing of a dissident journalist last year.Bonds from Saudi Aramco began trading in London on Wednesday after strong interest from investors, with bids reportedly reaching as much as $100 billion. The Saudis had initially wanted to raise $10 billion but issued $12 billion in the end, according to financial information provider FactSet.Saudi Arabia faced international condemnation after the assassination in October of Jamal Khashoggi by Saudi agents in the Saudi consulate in Istanbul. But the bond sale, which was run by JPMorgan, Morgan Stanley, and others, shows continued interest from Western companies.The Associated Press read more

He said that people like Nisha Biswal will not be seen anymore in Sri Lanka unless she is here on holiday.

Apple hopes to get its books movies back online in China

Apple hopes to get its books, movies back online in China by The Associated Press Posted Apr 22, 2016 3:09 am MDT Last Updated Apr 22, 2016 at 4:00 am MDT AddThis Sharing ButtonsShare to TwitterTwitterShare to FacebookFacebookShare to RedditRedditShare to 電子郵件Email BEIJING, China – Apple Inc. said Friday it hopes to resume its online iTunes and iBooks services in China, where they were recently shut down less than seven months after being launched.The New York Times reported Thursday that Apple’s online movie and book stores initially received government approval but were blocked last week on orders from the broadcasting regulator, the State Administration of Press, Publication, Radio, Film and Television.Apple said in an emailed statement that it hoped the services could resume “as soon as possible,” but offered no details about the shutdown.The broadcasting regulator has been stretching its authority to online content, which is also regulated by other government agencies and ministries. Calls to the administration’s media office rang unanswered Friday.China is Apple’s second largest market after the U.S. and a key driver of its sales growth, with stylish stores selling Apple products now a feature of almost all major cities. In February, the tech giant launched its smartphone-based payment system, Apple Pay, in China, making it the fifth country where the service is offered.Chinese regulators have been cracking down on a wide range of online content, including blocking popular overseas news, entertainment, and social media platforms such as Facebook and Twitter. That’s partly to maintain the ruling Communist Party’s strict control over media, but also to provide space for Chinese competitors such as search engine baidu, micro-blogging site Weibo and messaging app Weixin.China is also eager to promote homegrown phone makers such as Huawei and Xiaomi, and foreign equipment suppliers such as IBM and Cisco have seen some decline in sales because of increased competition from local brands.President and Communist Party leader Xi Jinping has repeatedly stressed the importance of China maintaining its “cyberspace sovereignty” by blocking the free flow of information from outside the country. read more

Surgeries resume at National Ophthalmology Hospital

After an almost three-year hiatus the National Ophthalmology Hospital at Port Mourant, East Berbice-Corentyne, is once again functioning. Laser cataract surgeries as well as those for normal cataracts are currently being done.National Ophthalmology Hospital, Port Mourant East Berbice CorentyneRegion Six’s Director of Regional Health Services Jevaughn Stephen, recently made this disclosure to the Department of Public Information (DPI) in an interview. He noted however that the operations have not yet fully resumed.He explained, “Work has not picked up to the full pace as we would have liked. We have new equipment and new personnel, so, as we are get back on stream and being mindful of the loads of the machine, we don’t want to overload the work schedule as yet. However, I do believe within the next 14 days we should be back at full peak.”Stephens noted that as a result of the break in operations, there was a buildup of over 2000 cases requiring surgery and every effort is being made to clear the backlog first. This is being done even as new cases are coming in, however each case is assessed and based, on the evaluations, priority is given to the more critical cases.Additionally, to help better boost efficiency, the Guyana Medical Relief Mission made a donation of Ophthalmology equipment, drugs and medical supplies on May 24.Despite the facility being unable able to conduct surgeries for the past three years, screening, testing and other services were still offered.Previously drugs, equipment and medical supplies were supplied to the facility through the Cuban Government, this ceased after that contract was halted suddenly, the Regional Health Director noted.Efforts to understand why the contract was stopped were unsuccessful however recognising the important role the Ophthalmology Centre played to Berbice residents, the Regional Administration and the Government decided to purchase the necessary drugs. They also wrote to the Guyana Medical Relief Mission for assistance and were successful in covering the initial startup through assistance from donor agencies and the regional health budget.The National Ophthalmology Hospital was constructed in July 2009 and has treated thousands of patients from Guyana and the Caribbean. The facility has the capacity to conduct some 10,000 surgeries annually.

Theres hope for Vancouver cruisein possibly under new name

first_imgIt might have a new name, but it looks likely the annual classic-car show known as Cruisin’ the Gut in downtown Vancouver will go on.Bryan Shull, with Trap Door Brewing, said he’s working with a group of Main Street business owners hoping to host the mid-July car cruise.“We know the cruise is going to happen with or without official management and the result of 20,000 people on Main Street (the estimated size of the event) with no garbage collection, portable bathrooms, traffic control measures, and coordinated police presence, would be quite frankly horrific,” Shull wrote in an email. “The potential damage to businesses and the reputation of our burgeoning Main Street economy was deemed unacceptable. Our response is to try to supply the necessary infrastructure to secure a safe and entertaining day of cruising Main Street Vancouver. We have (three) weeks to do this.”Phil Medina, who has organized the event since 2009, told city officials he wouldn’t be sponsoring it this year.The city and Medina have differing perspectives on why the relationship disintegrated.Julie Hannon, director of Vancouver Parks and Recreation, said the city met several times with Medina and offered the same terms involved in last year’s contract, including paying for half of the police costs up to $8,000, along with helping him apply for lodging tax funding to offset other costs and subsidizing the price of portable toilets.last_img read more

State Senators behavior again an issue

first_imgState Sen. Pam Roach, R-Auburn. OLYMPIA (AP) — A Republican state senator who is set to lead a committee under a new legislative coalition violated a Senate policy on treatment of staff shortly after she was allowed back into the GOP caucus last year, according to documents obtained by The Associated Press.A new report says Sen. Pam Roach of Auburn violated the policy in March by verbally attacking a Senate Republican staffer charged with upholding sanctions against Roach that prevented her from having direct contact with staff. The report was compiled by a subcommittee created last summer solely to investigate incidents involving Roach, who was kicked out of her caucus three years ago because of accusations of mistreating staff. Reached by phone Tuesday, Roach said she didn’t know anything about the report.“I’m looking into it,” Roach said. She declined to comment further.Last month, two Democrats announced they would work with Republicans under a newly formed caucus called the “majority coalition” caucus and that Democratic Sen. Rodney Tom of Medina would be the new majority leader. Roach was named chairwoman of the Senate Government Operations, Tribal Relations & Elections Committee under the new power structure. Tom said he couldn’t comment on the specific allegations, but said the sanctions against Roach, which were reaffirmed under a legal settlement announced in September, would be lifted. He noted that senators are going through respectful workforce training.“I want everybody to be treated like we would want to be treated,” he said.The 2010 sanctions say Roach’s ability to have access to more staff is contingent upon her completing a plan for counseling or training. The documents obtained by the AP note Roach “has not taken even the slightest step to address the concerns” raised in 2010 by the Senate Facilities and Operations Committee, which oversees personnel issues.last_img read more

Look Out Candy Crush Flappy Bird Is the Latest Craze in Mobile

first_img 2 min read Just one glance at the iTunes and Google Play app charts makes it patently clear that mobile gamers have gone a little cuckoo over games about birds.Following the unprecedented success of Angry Birds, a new winged character has taken flight: Flappy Bird.Created by Dong Nguyen of dotGears, an indie game studio based in Vietnam, Flappy Bird is currently the No. 1 free app on both Apple and Android devices. To date, it has received nearly 500,000 four-star reviews in the iTunes store.Related: The NSA Is Using Angry Birds to Spy on YouAnd that’s not all. Nguyen has two other games perched high atop the iTunes charts — likely resulting from enthusiastic word-of-mouth about Flappy Bird. These include Super Ball (#2) and Shuriken Block (#6).Perhaps most bafflingly, Nguyen told the app development blog Chocolate Lap Apps that the growth of the games has been entirely organic. “I didn’t use any promotion methods,” he said.Flappy Bird has been described as infuriatingly difficult to win and is characterized by a rudimentary graphic display and extremely straightforward (read: nonexistent) storyline. Players must continually tap on their touchscreens in order to navigate a bulgy-eyed yellow bird between green pipes — not unlike those traveled by Super Mario himself.Related: Sweet Victory: Candy Crush Developer Trademarks the Word ‘Candy’The game was initially uploaded in May, but has only recently captured public attention. It is a free program that features ads but offers none of the in-app purchases that have made games like Candy Crush Saga so immensely lucrative.While piggybacking on buzzwords — like “birds” — has proven effective in an increasingly congested app market, it has also raised legal eyebrows. Candy Crush developer King even successfully filed a trademark claim on the word “candy,” while Zynga owns a trademark for the phrase “with friends,” originating from its massively successful Words With Friends app.While Flappy Bird’s meteoric success is the kind that is simply impossible to predict, Nguyen himself seems the most shocked of all. “I don’t know how my games can be so popular,” he told TechCrunch. “Most of my players are kids in schools.”Related: A Step-by-Step Guide To Building Your First Mobile App Free Webinar | Sept 5: Tips and Tools for Making Progress Toward Important Goals Attend this free webinar and learn how you can maximize efficiency while getting the most critical things done right.center_img February 3, 2014 Register Now »last_img read more

For $699, you get a 15.6-inch, 1080p display; an 8th Gen Core i5 CPU, 8GB of RAM and a 256GB SSD — the minimum specs we recommend for a laptop at this price. However, the highlight is the compact, aluminum design, which could easily make people mistake the Ideapad 530S for a more expensive laptop.article continued below While there aren’t any deal-breakers, this machine does underwhelm in some areas. The laptop’s battery life falls short of the competition, and its slim bezels border a dull display. Still, the Ideapad 530S is one of the best Lenovo laptops, and a good option for anyone who doesn’t want to splurge on a premium laptop but feel like they did. Design The Lenovo Ideapad 530S’ design reminds me of a monochrome painting you’d find in a contemporary art museum. There isn’t much too it, and yet, it’s mesmerizing. Every design cue feels like it has a purpose, adding up to a laptop that looks elegant and feels expensive. The Ideapad 530S would blend in nicely with Apple’s portfolio of laptops, and that’s quite a compliment. The machine sports a two-tone silver aluminum deck and light-gray lid and keyboard. The contrast is subtle, but it gives the laptop a unique look. A small, dark-gray rectangle with Lenovo branding hides on the side of the lid like a T-shirt tag. A slanted hinge and chrome trim around the deck and touchpad add even more elegance to this sophisticated design. Unfortunately, the deck of our review unit wobbled when I applied pressure to the left of the touchpad. A replacement unit Lenovo sent us didn’t have the same issue, suggesting it’s not widespread. The Ideapad 530S would blend nicely into Apple’s portfolio of laptops, and that’s quite a  compliment. Thanks to the thin bezels, the 14.1 x 9.6 x 0.7-inch Ideapad 530S is remarkably compact for a 15-inch laptop. The Acer Aspire E 15 (15 x 10.2 x 1.2 inches) has a much larger footprint, while the 13-inch Asus ZenBook UX330UA (12.7 x 8.7 x 0.5) is, as you’d expect, a good deal smaller. MORE: Best Lenovo Laptops At 3.7 pounds, the Ideapad 530S weighs less than some 14-inch laptops. In comparison, the chunky Acer Aspire E 15 comes in at 4.9 pounds, and the sleek Asus ZenBook UX330UA weighs only 2.7 pounds. Ports Because of its thin chassis, the Ideapad 530S is light on ports. However, it has pretty much everything you could ask for, short of a Thunderbolt 3 input. On the left side, you’ll find an HDMI, a USB 3.0 port, a USB 3.1 Type-C input, a headphone/mic combo jack and a DC power connector. The right side is rather sparse, housing only a 4-in-1 card reader and a second USB 3.0 port. Display The Ideapad 530S’ 15-inch, non-touch 1080p display gets plenty bright, but I wish it were more vibrant. When I watched a trailer for The House with a Clock in its Walls, the ornate gilding around Jack Black’s kingly chair was perfectly visible. I didn’t even have to squint to see the intricate design on the back of his playing cards. The colorful house in which the trailer is set should have been bursting with magic, but instead, it appeared uninspired. The bright orange eyes on the living jack-o’-lantern failed to scare, and Cate Blanchett’s beautiful purple dress disappeared against the dark scenery. It’s not that the colors were dull; they just looked subdued on this matte display. It’s not all bad, though. The display’s white balance seemed on point, and I didn’t notice any glaringly inaccurate tones. The 15-inch, non-touch 1080p display gets plenty bright, but I wish it were more vibrant. The Ideapad 530S’ display fell short in the color department, reproducing only 72 percent of the sRGB color space. The Acer Aspire E 15 (74 percent) edges out the Ideapad, while the Asus ZenBook UX330UA (105 percent) and the mainstream laptop average (90 percent) blow it away. MORE: Laptops with the Best Display Brightness On the bright side (pun intended), the Ideapad 530S’ display reached a respectable 255 nits, outshining the Acer Aspire E 15 (200 nits) and the average mainstream laptop (238 nits). The luminous display on the Asus ZenBook UX330UA (302 nits) makes the Ideapad 530S appear dim in comparison. Keyboard and Touchpad While not as brilliant as those on ThinkPad laptops, the Ideapad 530S’ backlit keyboard is decent in its own right. I was greeted to pleasantly tactile feedback each time I registered a key press, and the keys felt springy, not mushy. However, with 1 millimeter of key travel (below our 1.5-mm preference), the keyboard is rather shallow. Combine that with an above-average actuation force of 71 grams, and the Ideapad 530 isn’t the most comfortable to type on for extended periods. With a score of 112 words per minute, I wasn’t able to reach my typical 115 wpm average in the 10fastfingers.com typing test. Also, at 92 percent, my accuracy was below my 95 percent average. Audio The Lenovo Ideapad 530S’ speakers get loud enough to fill a large room, but the audio lacks depth. When I listened to Panic! At the Disco’s new song “High Hopes,” vocals were clear but the pop track sounded thin and veiled. The speakers also failed to separate instruments, which resulted in a grating clash of high-pitched drum hits and shrill guitar sounds. MORE: Buying Headphones in: Pros and Cons of Every Type When I listened to Avicii’s remix of “Wake Me Up,” Aloe Black’s smooth voice sounded hollow and the drum rhythm had no weight to it. Overall, the speakers are good enough for casual listeners, but discerning audiophiles will want to plug in some headphones. Performance Equipped with an Intel Core i5 CPU and 8GB of RAM, the Lenovo Ideapad 530S offers loads of performance for the price. I’m the sort of person who avoids cleaning up browser tabs at all costs; fortunately, I never had to with the Ideapad 530S. I opened 20 web pages on Google Chrome, and didn’t notice any lag. Even more impressive is that the Ideapad 530S didn’t falter once when I simultaneously opened a Twitch stream of Ninja playing Fortnite and four 1080p YouTube videos. The Lenovo Ideapad 530S performed well in our performance benchmarks. It scored a 11,966 in the Geekbench 4 test, which measures overall performance. It crushed the Core i5-equipped Acer Aspire E 15 (9,278), but fell just short of the speedy Asus ZenBook UX330UA (12,871) with the same CPU. The average mainstream laptop (8,600) doesn’t get anywhere near the performance of the Ideapad 530S. I’m the sort of person who avoids cleaning up browser tabs at all costs. Fortunately, I never had to with the Ideapad 530S. The Ideapad 530S did a bang-up job during our productivity test, which tasks laptops to match 65,000 names with their corresponding addresses in Excel 2016. The laptop completed the task in 1 minute and 24 seconds, narrowly finishing before the Acer Aspire E 15 (1:30). The mainstream laptop average is far behind, at 2:10. The 256GB PCIe SSD in the Ideapad 530S took 18 seconds to duplicate 4.96GB of mixed-media files for a rate of 282 megabytes per second. Again, the Lenovo topped its competitors, and by a good margin. The Acer Aspire E 15 (150 MBps) and the Asus ZenBook UX330UA (181.8 MBps) performed the task at a much slower rate. The mainstream laptop average transferred the same files at a sluggish rate of 135.9 MBps. MORE: Laptops with the Best Productivity Performance It took the Lenovo Ideapad 530S 21 minutes and 5 seconds to convert a 4K video into 1080p using the HandBrake app. The Asus ZenBook UX330UA squeezed out a victory this round, with a time of 20:55, while the Acer Aspire E 15 (25:15) and the mainstream laptop average (29:14) were left behind. Graphics With integrated Intel UHD 620 graphics, the Ideapad 530S doesn’t have the power to play a game like Deus Ex: Mankind Divided at high settings, but it shouldn’t have problems with less-demanding titles. The Ideapad 530S scored a 69,450 in the 3DMark Ice Storm Unlimited graphics test. That middling result falls short of the GeForce MX150-equipped Acer Aspire E 15 (122,144), the Asus ZenBook UX330UA (73,990) and the mainstream laptop average (70,406). MORE: Best Graphics Performance Oddly, the results were flipped in real-world testing. The Ideapad 530S played Dirt 3 at 49 frames per second, beating the Acer Aspire E 15 (33 fps), Asus ZenBook UX330UA (27 fps) and the mainstream laptop average (47 fps). Battery Life The Ideapad 530S’ battery life is better than average but behind some of its competition. The laptop lasted 7 hours and 41 minutes on our Laptop Mag Battery Test, which involves continuous web browsing over Wi-Fi at 150 nits. The mainstream laptop average is 7:19. MORE: Longest Battery Life Laptops For comparison, the Asus ZenBook UX330UA stayed powered for a bit longer at 7:53, while the Acer Aspire E 15 dominated this category, lasting 9:26. Webcam The Ideapad 530S’ webcam is a notch above average, but that’s not saying much. Despite the Ideapad 530S’ narrow bezels, the webcam is located above the display, where it belongs. The 720p camera took a long time to adjust to the bright lighting behind me, but once it did, I was able to make out fine details in my face, like strands of hair in my beard. The selfie cam accurately captured the natural red tone of my face, but my dark-blue shirt leaned gray. The image I captured in our dimly lit office didn’t exhibited much noise. Heat The Lenovo Ideapad 530S ran warm in our heat test, but not uncomfortably so. When we played a 1080p YouTube video for 15 minutes, the touchpad maintained a reasonable 89.5 degrees Fahrenheit. However, the location between the G and H keys warmed to 94 degrees, while the underside breached our 95-degree comfort threshold, hitting 96 degrees. The hottest location on the laptop, the lower-left bottom corner, was only 1 degree warmer. Software and Warranty The Lenovo Ideapad 530S comes with a standard catalog of pre-installed software. To its credit, Lenovo included only three branded apps: Lenovo App Explorer, Lenovo Vantage and LenovoUtility. As the name suggests, App Explorer spotlights certain apps and gives you custom recommendations from the Microsoft App Store. With genuinely useful tools, Vantage feels less like bloatware than Explorer. The app has a single interface where you can update your system, change hardware settings, adjust audio levels and find support. I could do without LenovoUtility, which simply presents an on-screen visual when you press certain hotkeys, like the num lock or the disable touchpad key. The Lenovo Ideapad 530S has all the Windows 10 bloatware we’ve come to dread. That includes a couple of Candy Crush Saga titles, along with Disney Magic Kingdoms and Hidden Cities games. Other pre-installed apps include LinkedIn, Minecraft and the Microsoft Solitaire Collection. MORE: Best and Worst Laptop Brands The Lenovo Ideapad 530S ships with a one-year limited warranty. See how Lenovo did on our Tech Support Showdown and Best and Worst Brands ranking. What Does the Ideapad 530S Cost? Our review unit, the base model, starts at $699, and is equipped with an Intel Core i5 CPU, 8GB of RAM and a 256GB SSD. You can bump up the CPU to a Core i7-8550U for an additional $100, and double the SSD storage to 512GB for $150 on top of that. You’ll pay $1,249 for the decked-out model, which has a Core i7-8550U CPU, 16GB of RAM and a 512GB SSD. Even at that price, the 15.6-inch display maxes out at 1080p resolution. Bottom Line The Lenovo Ideapad 530S is an impressive laptop with an elegant, lightweight design. Add capable components and narrow bezels, and this machine covers almost all of the bases. Best of all, the $699 Ideapad 530S is priced comfortably below the daunting four-figure mark. However, the Ideapad 530S doesn’t offer the most colorful display, and its speakers failed to impress. If you’re a gamer, consider the Acer Aspire E 15. The $600 laptop packs an Nvidia GeForce MX150 CPU, which can play most modern games at low settings. And if you’re a student or business professional who travels frequently, and doesn’t need a 15-inch laptop, go with the Asus ZenBook UX330UA. The 13-inch ultrabook has longer battery life and a more vivid display than the Lenovo. Otherwise, we strongly recommend the Ideapad 530S — it’s a gorgeous laptop with strong performance that doesn’t break the bank.

Mortgage Lenders vs Growing Technology

first_imgMortgage Lenders vs. Growing Technology in Daily Dose, Featured, News, Technology 15 days ago 407 Views Fannie Mae Mortgage Lender technology 2019-07-18 Mike Albanesecenter_img The growing use of technology in the mortgage space is what most lenders call their biggest competitor, according to analysis from Fannie Mae. Fannie Mae’s VP of Single-Family Strategy and Insights Andrew Peters said lenders continue to cite “consumer-facing technology” as the most important business priority to maintain competitiveness. “The mortgage industry has faced a number of challenges in recent years. Technological advancements, demographic changes, increased competition, and lack of entry-level housing stock have applied pressure to growth and profitability. Over the past two years, lenders have continuously pointed to ‘competition from other lenders’ as the most significant drag on their profit margin outlook,” Peters said.Lenders have cited consumer-facing technology as the top business priority for the past two years years, with numbers growing each year. The amount of lenders who had technology as a top priority in Q2 2017 was 18%, which grew to 23% in Q2 2018 and to 25% in Q2 2019.“Lenders’ business priorities also appear to be in line with their assessment of market threats. A majority expect “online business-to-consumer lenders” to be their biggest competitor over the next five years, followed by traditional financial institutions with branches, online real estate service providers, and mortgage brokers,” Peters said. “Many pointed to B-to-C lenders’ advantages in technology, scalability, and advertising and technology budgets.”Peters said that lenders appear to be trending toward making investment to improve customer experience, while reducing the cost to manufacture mortgage loans, all in an effort to better deal with market changes. New entrants, though, are challenging existing market dynamics. Some of these competitors are digital banking startups focused on building a digital experience. Traditional lenders report that online lenders present the largest threat to their business going forward.“As a result, lenders believe that their biggest opportunity lies in re-engineering their processes to be competitive in similar ways,” Peters said. “The extent to which this type of simple digital banking model can be operationalized within a complex mortgage ecosystem remains to be seen, but investments to that end continue to be made.” Sharelast_img read more
