MICA group put pressure on banks over homes affected by bad blocks

first_imgDonegal’s Mica Action Group have stepped up their campaign and are now actively been engaging with banks and financial institutions who hold mortgages on mica properties.The group are making a conserted effort to gain their support for families across the county affected by the defective blocks issue.Joe Morgan, a new MAG committee member, is spearheading the engagement between MAG and the financial institutions. He said “With the announcement in May of this year that there is a requirement for homeowners to contribute 10% towards the cost of the remedial scheme for the repair of their homes, MAG are bringing to the attention of the banks the absolute necessity for them to step up to the plate and support homeowners across the county.“We are reiterating that financial institutions are also stakeholders in this crisis; they potentially have thousands of homes on their books which are currently valued way in excess of the real market value due to the defective blocks issue. It is only following the repair of these homes (through accessing the redress scheme), that this higher valuation can be reinstated.”He added that without the scheme, many of these homes will never return to their former market value.Due to the requirement on homeowners to make a 10% contribution, MAG feel that this scheme will be out of reach for many families without a direct contribution from the lenders, in circumstances where the families cannot make up the 10% private contribution. Mr Morgan added “It is clear that it is also in the lenders interest to ensure homes with financial agreements secured against them (i.e. loans or mortgages) are returned to market value. If families without the means to contribute the 10% private contribution are not supported, these homes will continue to deteriorate year on year. This will lead to those families leaving their home and moving into rental accommodation. Mortgage default and repossession proceedings will follow. This is not what the homeowners want and it is not what lenders want. It is I no-one’s interest to let this happen. “In addition to this direct engagement with lenders, and following a meeting with Minister Joe McHugh on Oct 22nd, where a commitment was given by Minister Mc Hugh to seek a joint supporting statement from The Department of Finance & The Central Bank to ask for unique financial measures from the major lenders in Donegal, last week we again wrote to Minister Mc Hugh (Minister for Education), Minister Eoghan Murphy (Minister for Housing) and Minister Pascal O’ Donoghue (Minister for Finance) asking for their respective updates on this offer of support.The lenders themselves have stated a common approach would be very beneficial and have welcomed a supporting position from The Central Bank and Government. MAG have led discussion and debate to date and have been successful in generating significant engagement within the major lender headquarters in Dublin. They now need help from Government to bring the full circle and to exert pressure from all sides.“In the interim, MAG are continuing to lobby the major lenders and have requested written positions from each lender by the end of November. Lender’s positions will be made public in early December, in order for families to be aware of the support mechanisms in place for them.“It is crucial therefore that the key lenders in the county have indications of support from Government and The Central Bank ahead of this milestone. It is our intent to follow this publication with a Financial information event in Late January 2020 in Letterkenny to support active engagement between the lenders/banks and their customers impacted by the Mica crisis.” MICA group put pressure on banks over homes affected by bad blocks was last modified: November 19th, 2019 by Staff WriterShare this:Click to share on Facebook (Opens in new window)Click to share on Twitter (Opens in new window)Click to share on LinkedIn (Opens in new window)Click to share on Reddit (Opens in new window)Click to share on Pocket (Opens in new window)Click to share on Telegram (Opens in new window)Click to share on WhatsApp (Opens in new window)Click to share on Skype (Opens in new window)Click to print (Opens in new window)Tags:bad blocksbankshomesMICAPressurelast_img read more

How Oklahoma plans to get just a little brighter

first_imgHow IoT Will Play an Important Role in Traffic … Surveillance at the Heart of Smart Cities Silver Spring Networks has selected Oklahoma Gas & Electric to launch its IPv6 IoT platform and Streetlight Vision control software to connect and manage up to 250,000 LED street lights throughout its Oklahoma service area.“Connecting the street lights across our service territory is another example of our focus on innovative solutions and a natural extension of our ambitious smart grid program. OG&E is committed to delivering efficient, reliable lighting and electricity service to the citizens of Oklahoma,” explains Ken Grant, VP of Sales and Marketing for Oklahoma Gas & Electric.See Also: Milwaukee enters the trending smart city initiativeThe company expects the smart lighting system to greatly enhance the quality of service and reliability for users, speed up the street light restoration time when outages occur, improve system efficiency, and reduce energy use.“Silver Spring’s connected street lights platform will help OG&E improve service, lower costs, and enhance public safety,” says Grant.Silver Spring Networks is currently the market leader in North America for smart street light systems, and has announced several other intelligent street light projects with major utility companies, including Baltimore Gas & Electric, Pepco Holdings, Inc. and ComEd.  The company is also working with Florida Power & Light on one of the biggest connected street lighting projects in the world, totaling nearly 500,000 networked street lights across Miami and South Florida.Around the globe, one can find important connected infrastructure devices that Silver Spring is responsible for, including Glasgow, London, Paris, Sao Paulo, Washington D.C. and Singapore, along with several other major cities.Platform prepares cities for future smart applicationsThe open, standards-based solution of the IPv6 IoT platform allows utilities and cities to create a platform for future applications and services such as smart parking, natural gas metering, traffic management and much more.The Oklahoma Corporation Commission has granted regulatory approval for a new LED lighting tariff to Oklahoma Gas & Electric, which will allow for the transformation of OG&E’s lighting infrastructure from incandescent to smart LED technology.“Oklahoma Gas & Electric has consistently demonstrated its industry leadership with its advanced smart grid initiatives. We’re honored to take the next step with them as we extend our critical infrastructure networking platform to include street lights across Oklahoma,” states Brandon Davito, Vice President of Smart Cities and Lighting, Silver Spring Networks.

Filmmaking Hack: Building a Wireless Video Monitor

first_imgWireless video monitoring systems are crucial for many types of productions, but their high costs can often be prohibitive for indie filmmakers. Here’s how to build your own.Once you’ve used a wireless video monitor on set, it’s hard to go back to any other system. Whether you’re a director that’s sick of looking over your DP’s shoulder, or you’re a DP that’s sick of your whole crew crowding around you in between takes — this solution is for you.All wireless video monitoring systems are comprised of at least these four components:The Monitor – $179A Transmitter/Receiver – $599A Cage or Handle System – $49Battery Power – $23GRAND TOTAL – $850The video embedded below from Sam and Niko shows one great option for setting up this type of DIY system:Ultimately the cost of your setup will be dictated by the quality of the products you choose. If having a high-quality monitor like a Small HD AC7 is important to you, then your cost will obviously increase. The same could be said about your wireless transmitter, cage system, and battery solution. Even still, it’s pretty amazing that a fully functional system can be set up for just a few hundred bucks, should you opt for the most economical option.It’s worth noting that the system in the video uses an HDMI Transmitter/Receiver. If you’re working on a more professional cinema camera that only has an SDI output on it, you’ll also need to factor in the cost of an SDI to HDMI converter. This converter will also need to be powered, which could add another battery component to your rig depending on how you’ve got things configured. Regardless, this is an excellent budget-conscious option for shooters who are in desperate need of a wireless solution.Got any money-saving DIY tips/hacks/techniques you’d like to share?

A Year Later, Researchers Still Recovering From Superstorm Sandy

first_imgOne year after Superstorm Sandy slammed into the eastern United States, flooding research laboratories and knocking out nearly one-half of a coastal research radar network, some scientists are still picking up the pieces.“We still have three radar stations down in northern New Jersey, but we’re hoping to get the money to replace them in November,” says Gerhard Kuska, executive director of the Mid-Atlantic Regional Association Coastal Ocean Observing System, which helps run a string of 41 radars stretching from Massachusetts to North Carolina. When Sandy came ashore on the night of 29 October 2012, the storm’s high winds and surging tides destroyed four of the 5- to 7-meter-tall radar towers and damaged another 13. Failing electrical grids also “totally fried some of our computer hard drives and electrical components,” Kuska adds.Since then, “we’ve really been piecing things together with glue and duct tape,” he says. “There was no money to fix this stuff, and we didn’t have a lot of spares, so we temporarily took money out of other” programs to replace the radars, which a coalition of universities and government agencies use to study offshore winds and currents. They also invested in new backup power and computing systems. “We’re much better prepared for a storm now,” Kuska says, “but it has been expensive.” Financial help is coming soon, however: Earlier this year, Congress passed a $50 billion storm relief bill that includes funding to cover the approximately $2 million cost of restoring the damaged radars.Sign up for our daily newsletterGet more great content like this delivered right to you!Country *AfghanistanAland IslandsAlbaniaAlgeriaAndorraAngolaAnguillaAntarcticaAntigua and BarbudaArgentinaArmeniaArubaAustraliaAustriaAzerbaijanBahamasBahrainBangladeshBarbadosBelarusBelgiumBelizeBeninBermudaBhutanBolivia, Plurinational State ofBonaire, Sint Eustatius and SabaBosnia and HerzegovinaBotswanaBouvet IslandBrazilBritish Indian Ocean TerritoryBrunei DarussalamBulgariaBurkina FasoBurundiCambodiaCameroonCanadaCape VerdeCayman IslandsCentral African RepublicChadChileChinaChristmas IslandCocos (Keeling) IslandsColombiaComorosCongoCongo, The Democratic Republic of theCook IslandsCosta RicaCote D’IvoireCroatiaCubaCuraçaoCyprusCzech RepublicDenmarkDjiboutiDominicaDominican RepublicEcuadorEgyptEl SalvadorEquatorial GuineaEritreaEstoniaEthiopiaFalkland Islands (Malvinas)Faroe IslandsFijiFinlandFranceFrench GuianaFrench PolynesiaFrench Southern TerritoriesGabonGambiaGeorgiaGermanyGhanaGibraltarGreeceGreenlandGrenadaGuadeloupeGuatemalaGuernseyGuineaGuinea-BissauGuyanaHaitiHeard Island and Mcdonald IslandsHoly See (Vatican City State)HondurasHong KongHungaryIcelandIndiaIndonesiaIran, Islamic Republic ofIraqIrelandIsle of ManIsraelItalyJamaicaJapanJerseyJordanKazakhstanKenyaKiribatiKorea, Democratic People’s Republic ofKorea, Republic ofKuwaitKyrgyzstanLao People’s Democratic RepublicLatviaLebanonLesothoLiberiaLibyan Arab JamahiriyaLiechtensteinLithuaniaLuxembourgMacaoMacedonia, The Former Yugoslav Republic ofMadagascarMalawiMalaysiaMaldivesMaliMaltaMartiniqueMauritaniaMauritiusMayotteMexicoMoldova, Republic ofMonacoMongoliaMontenegroMontserratMoroccoMozambiqueMyanmarNamibiaNauruNepalNetherlandsNew CaledoniaNew ZealandNicaraguaNigerNigeriaNiueNorfolk IslandNorwayOmanPakistanPalestinianPanamaPapua New GuineaParaguayPeruPhilippinesPitcairnPolandPortugalQatarReunionRomaniaRussian FederationRWANDASaint Barthélemy Saint Helena, Ascension and Tristan da CunhaSaint Kitts and NevisSaint LuciaSaint Martin (French part)Saint Pierre and MiquelonSaint Vincent and the GrenadinesSamoaSan MarinoSao Tome and PrincipeSaudi ArabiaSenegalSerbiaSeychellesSierra LeoneSingaporeSint Maarten (Dutch part)SlovakiaSloveniaSolomon IslandsSomaliaSouth AfricaSouth Georgia and the South Sandwich IslandsSouth SudanSpainSri LankaSudanSurinameSvalbard and Jan MayenSwazilandSwedenSwitzerlandSyrian Arab RepublicTaiwanTajikistanTanzania, United Republic ofThailandTimor-LesteTogoTokelauTongaTrinidad and TobagoTunisiaTurkeyTurkmenistanTurks and Caicos IslandsTuvaluUgandaUkraineUnited Arab EmiratesUnited KingdomUnited StatesUruguayUzbekistanVanuatuVenezuela, Bolivarian Republic ofVietnamVirgin Islands, BritishWallis and FutunaWestern SaharaYemenZambiaZimbabweI also wish to receive emails from AAAS/Science and Science advertisers, including information on products, services and special offers which may include but are not limited to news, careers information & upcoming events.Required fields are included by an asterisk(*)Repairs are also still under way at the U.S. National Oceanic and Atmospheric Administration’s (NOAA’s) James J. Howard Marine Sciences Laboratory in Fort Hancock, New Jersey, which sits just north of the storm’s landfall. Some 75% of the fish kept by researchers died in the week after the storm, Thomas Noji, chief of the lab’s Ecosystems Processes Division, tells ScienceInsider in an e-mail. The lab itself “weathered Superstorm Sandy surprisingly well relative to our neighbors,” he writes, sustaining “only minimal damage from flooding.  However, the seawater intake piping, which supplies our lab with seawater for experimentation, sustained significant damage.  We also had significant damage to our buildings caused by winds. … But we have fixed the vital support systems to the point that we are again operational.”“It has been quite a trying year,” John Manderson, a NOAA ecologist at the lab, writes in an e-mail. The lab reopened the day before Christmas 2012, he recalls. But then came the government budget cuts known as the sequester, and then this month’s 16-day shutdown. Through it all, “everybody had been working very hard to get back up and running,” he writes.At New York University (NYU) in New York City, “[i]t’s really hard to remember how bad it was,” Gordon Fishell, director of NYU’s Smilow Neuroscience Program, told Apoorva Mandavilli of SFARI.org. Some 2500 of Fishell’s experimental mice were drowned when stormwaters flooded his building’s basement, forcing dozens of researchers to relocate. Now, NYU is building new, storm-hardened research laboratories, Mandavilli reports—and the mice will be kept on the third floor.last_img read more

No plan yet for NRC non-applicants

first_imgWhat will Assam do with the 3.9 lakh people who had opted out or not applied for inclusion in the National Register of Citizens (NRC)?They don’t seem to be in the current scheme of things, at least while the exercise is on to publish the final list of citizens by August 31, a date fixed by the Supreme Court.The draft NRC published on July 30, 2018, had excluded 4,007,707 people out of a total of 32,991,284 applicants. Another 102,462 were filtered out of those who made it to the draft NRC, and put in a list of rejected persons on June 26.Officials handling the NRC exercise said 3,612,019 out of the 40.07 lakh in the first exclusion list had reapplied. There is no data on how many of the rejected persons in the second list have reapplied. The State government indicated a plan would be worked out for the non-applicants once the NRC dust settles. “The State Coordinator for NRC is yet to share the details [about those who did not apply],” said Ashutosh Agnihotri, Assam’s Home Commissioner and Secretary. Studies have revealed that majority of poor tribal people do not possess or have not preserved legacy data — sets of documents that include the 1951 NRC and electoral rolls up to the midnight of March 24, 1971 — to prove their citizenship, despite being descendants of the indigenous peoples of Assam.last_img read more
