The paper had printed an article headed “Sadarak customs and the millions” on 30 August, reporting a $7 million annual petrol smuggling racket.

Proponents state that mortgages became too hard to get post-2008, and unconventional loans, such as non-QM loans, could open the housing market to sound borrowers who had been shut out of it. “There are some weakening standards and weakening practices,” said Eric Kaplan, Director of the Housing Finance Program at the Milken Institute on Wall Street Journal. “It doesn’t rise to the same level yet, to my knowledge, of some of the things taking place just prior to the crisis. But we have to be vigilant.”Nonbank lenders are largely the ones extending non-traditional loans, but big banks such as JPMorgan Chase & Co., Credit Suisse Group AG and Citigroup Inc. have recently been arranging mortgage bonds backed by unconventional loans.Big banks’ mortgage arms are still avoiding riskier borrowers, leaving them to nonbank lenders. Despite the rise in unconventional loans, the market for unconventional home loans is still smallcompared with the rest of the mortgage market, as well as its precrisis past, when unconventional borrowing peaked at more than $1 trillion. “Still, the increase in unconventional loans shows that lenders are looking farther afield for customers,” WSJ’s Ben Eisen states. “As the U.S. economic expansion ages and home prices rise faster than incomes for most Americans, the mortgage industry is finding that there is a limited number of cream-of-the-crop borrowers.” About Author: Seth Welborn  Print This Post The Week Ahead: Nearing the Forbearance Exit 2 days ago Related Articles The Best Markets For Residential Property Investors 2 days ago in Daily Dose, Featured, Investment, Market Studies, News Governmental Measures Target Expanded Access to Affordable Housing 2 days ago Demand Propels Home Prices Upward 2 days ago Servicers Navigate the Post-Pandemic World 2 days ago The Rise of Unconventional Loans Home / Daily Dose / The Rise of Unconventional Loans Data Provider Black Knight to Acquire Top of Mind 2 days ago Governmental Measures Target Expanded Access to Affordable Housing 2 days ago The Best Markets For Residential Property Investors 2 days ago Share Save Subscribelast_img read more

National parks face overflowing trash, toilets in second week of shutdown

first_imgkellyvandellen/iStock(NEW YORK) — As the government shutdown extends into the new year, public lands and national parks are struggling to handle the trash, waste and other damage from visitors without staff to manage the situation.The dozens of open-air national parks are remaining open during the government shutdown but with minimal staff to carry out basic operations, park rangers to provide safety information, and even limited emergency services like plowing roads and search and rescue in some cases.As visitors spend time on public lands during the shutdown, trash and human waste has been piling up and parks advocates say they’re concerned visitors could hurt the environment or put themselves at risk if they disregard rules the rangers would normally enforce.John Garder, senior director of budget and appropriations at the National Parks Conservation Association, told ABC News that when park rangers aren’t available to give basic safety information, visitors are less likely to be prepared.Some roads for instance, were impassible at Canyonlands National Park in Utah, the parks service said in a message:Due to heavy snowfall on 12/31/2018, the park road is closed at the visitor center. It is unknown when the road will open. Access to the park will not occur until conditions improve or the National Park Service receives funding to maintain the roads.— CanyonlandsNPS (@CanyonlandsNPS) December 31, 2018A similar situation unfolded at Arches National Park.NOTICE: The park is receiving heavy snowfall and it has become necessary to close the park road at the visitor center due to unsafe conditions. Because of the lapse of funding the National Park Service is unable to provide services, including plowing of roads.— Arches National Park (@ArchesNPS) December 31, 2018“We’re deeply concerned about the threat to park resources and to visitor safety with this park closure situation,” Garder said in a phone interview Monday.Garder said the NPCA is monitoring the situation and seeing trends that visitors in the parks are disregarding rules about keeping dogs on leashes, prohibitions on drones and restrictions on where to camp, all of which can harm or disrupt the natural environment or wildlife in the area.During the shutdown last January, a poacher killed a pregnant elk in Zion National Park and visitors were cited in Yellowstone for driving snowmobiles too close to Old Faithful.Volunteers and nonprofit groups like Friends of Joshua Tree National Park are stepping in to help but can’t make up for everything that would normally be done.The superintendent at Joshua Tree, David Smith, thanked the volunteers on Monday but said they have to close some of the campgrounds because the toilets, which don’t have plumbing or a septic system, are too full.Campgrounds in the park will be closed effective noon Wednesday, January 2nd. The park is being forced to take this action for health and safety concerns as vault toilets reach capacity. Indian Cove and Black Rock campgrounds will be open for day-use only, sunrise to sunset.— Joshua Tree NPS (@JoshuaTreeNPS) December 31, 2018Other parks have also said they will have to close areas or limit access to ensure visitor safety. Some even reminded visitors that excess trash or food can attract bears.There’s been at least one reported incident of an injury in a national park during the shutdown. Other visitors and a park ranger reportedly helped 26-year-old Joshua Snider after he broke his leg while hiking in Big Bend National Park in Texas on Christmas Eve.Snider said he saw the warning on the park’s website that emergency services might be delayed due to the shutdown but went on a three-day camping trip anyway, telling Newsday, “I was just excited to come when the park was going to be less busy.”Newsday, in New York, where Snider is originally from, reported he slipped during a hike and fell 6 to 8 feet. He was reportedly helped by his friend Michael Bright and good Samaritans that helped carry him 1.7 miles down the trail until they encountered a park ranger.“If there wasn’t a shutdown, I probably would’ve been able to get out in a more efficient way,” Snider told the paper. “But it also showed me, especially with this park ranger working unpaid, it showed me the dedication that some people have for their jobs and have for the greater good of society. It shows a beautiful part of humanity that you don’t see every day.”Copyright © 2019, ABC Radio. All rights reserved.last_img read more

News story: UK Government Minister reiterates importance of Oil and Gas sector

first_img I was pleased to be in Aberdeen for the Oil and Gas UK annual conference where we marked the success of the industry while looking at the challenges ahead as we move to a low carbon economy. Offshore oil and gas continues to be a success story for us supporting almost 300,000 jobs across the UK and more than a third of those being in Scotland. The UK Government continues to support the sector including contributing £90 million towards the Oil and Gas Technology Centre as part of the Aberdeen City Region Deal. This will help develop new capabilities, skills and jobs for the present and the future. As times change we must harness new opportunities. The oil and gas industry will continue to have a key role to play in meeting our energy needs, making the sector greener and using its expertise to help develop new forms of energy such as renewables. This transition and diversification includes tapping into the large pools of talent from traditionally underrepresented groups in the industry, such as women. Engaging with the sector on these vital topics is key to ensuring there continues to be a bright future ahead for Scotland’s economy and jobs. The UK Government has supported the sector through the £250 million Aberdeen City Region Deal, calls for evidence on UK decommissioning in the Spring Statement 2019 and the establishment of the Oil and Gas authority as a strong, independent regulator and industry steward to maximise economic recovery from the UK Continental Shelf (UKCS).Following his speech Lord Duncan toured the stands on display. Today [Wednesday 5 June] Lord Duncan visited the annual Oil and Gas UK industry conference in Aberdeen, speaking to the delegates about the importance of the sector and its future.Lord Duncan said:last_img read more
