Hondas third quarter profit doubles yearonyear due to strong global sales weak

Honda’s third quarter profit doubles year-on-year due to strong global sales, weak yen by Yuri Kageyama, The Associated Press Posted Jan 30, 2014 11:37 pm MDT AddThis Sharing ButtonsShare to TwitterTwitterShare to FacebookFacebookShare to RedditRedditShare to 電子郵件Email TOKYO – Honda’s quarterly profit doubled from a year earlier as sales got a big perk from a weak yen.Honda Motor Co. reported on Friday a 160.7 billion yen ($1.58 billion) net profit for the October-December fiscal third quarter, up from 77.4 billion yen the year before.The maker of the Fit subcompact, Odyssey minivan and Asimo humanoid, posted a 25 per cent jump in quarterly sales to 3.02 trillion yen ($29.6 billion).A favourable exchange rate helped Honda’s fortunes. The dollar has been trading above 100 yen compared with about 80 yen a year earlier. A weak yen helps lift the value of Japanese exporters’ overseas revenue.About 425 billion yen ($4.2 billion) of Honda’s sales and other operating revenue was due just to a favourable currency for the quarter.Honda stuck to its previous forecast for a 580 billion yen ($5.7 billion) profit for the fiscal year through March 31, 2014, up 58 per cent from the previous fiscal year, on 12.1 trillion yen ($118.6 billion) sales, up nearly 23 per cent.Tokyo-based Honda, like other Japanese automakers, has bounced back from troubled years, such as the 2011 tsunami and earthquake in northeastern Japan that devastated parts suppliers and disrupted production.Honda was also hurt by flooding in Thailand in late 2012. Anti-Japanese sentiment that flared up in China eroded sales in that key growth market last year.Honda said its results were helped by cost cuts and the launch of new models, in addition to the help it got from a weak yen. It sales grew in North America, Japan and the rest of Asia.During the quarter, Honda sold 1.08 million vehicles around the world, up nearly 10 per cent from a year earlier. It also reported an 11 per cent jump in motorcycle sales.It expects to sell nearly 4.39 million vehicles for the fiscal year through March 2014, up 9 per cent from 4.01 million in the previous year. Although upbeat, that’s lower than its earlier forecast of 4.43 million vehicles, as it expects fewer sales in North America, Asia and Europe.For the nine months through December 2013, Honda’s net profit gained nearly 39 per cent to 403.5 billion yen ($4 billion). Nine-month sales soared 23 per cent to 8.75 trillion yen ($86 billion).Toyota Motor Corp., the world’s top automaker, reports earnings Tuesday, while Nissan Motor Co. reports Feb. 10.___Follow Yuri Kageyama on Twitter at twitter.com/yurikageyama read more

With F35 squads set for Eielson thousands of people may come up

first_imgThe economic benefits that will come with two squadrons of F-35s scheduled to be based at Eielson beginning in 2021 are now expected to draw more than 5,000 people to the area, a consultant said Monday. (DVIDS/U.S. Air Force)More than 5,000 people may come to the Fairbanks area over the next four years as part of the move to base two squadrons of F-35 fighters at Eielson Air Force Base. The latest estimate announced Monday is well above the previous estimate of 3,500. The bigger population increase is expected to place a greater burden on local services.Listen nowThe new population-growth projections were announced at a meeting Monday in Salcha by consultants hired by the Fairbanks North Star Borough to study how the area can accommodate Eielson’s expansion. Shelly Wade is a member of the Arcadis project team that’s conducting the study. She says the higher projections include 400 or so additional personnel the Air Force will likely bring to Eielson, along with their family members.“It’s highly likely the additional positions that’ve been requested by the Air Force will be approved,” Wade said.Wade said the higher projections also include the number of people who would be drawn to the Fairbanks area by the jobs and other economic opportunities that would be generated by all the new personnel coming to Eielson.“So, those folks needs services,” Wade said. “They need food services, retail services, mechanics, child care – all of these things.”Arcadis’ studies suggest the numbers of those who would move here for jobs related to the expansion range from about 1,700 to just over 2,000. Wade told about two dozen people at the meeting that those are preliminary numbers that’ll be revised. The meeting in Salcha was the first of seven the consultants will hold around Fairbanks this week to identify shortages of housing, schools and other resources that may occur with the influx of new residents drawn by the expansion.Jeff Stepp is a special assistant to borough Mayor Karl Kassel. Stepp is working with the Arcadis community outreach that’s being conducted to get public input on gaps in services that need to be filled before the new personnel arrive.Twenty-four people attended last night’s community outreach meeting at the Salcha Senior Citizens Center on Johnson Road. It was the first of seven such meetings the borough and its contractor consultants are conducting around the Fairbanks area this week. (Tim Ellis/KUAC)“I think both Eielson Air Force Base and the Fairbanks North Star Borough have a shared interest in making sure the expansion accommodates the needs of the current residents and the future residents,”  Stepp said. “We got a lot of really good ideas, and good input, from these folks from Salcha who showed up to talk with us.”Many of the comments concerned the sluggish economy and its effect on the local housing market. Others talked about a lack of medical facilities near Eielson and inadequate internet and cellphone service in and around the base. Shelly Curtis, an administrative aide at Salcha School, said enforcement of speed limits and improved intersections are badly needed along the Richardson Highway.“Our suggestion is turn lanes,” Curtis said, “some turn lanes at some of the higher-traffic (areas), such as near the school, where we’re on a curve…”Curtis said turn lanes would help buses and other school-related traffic get on and off highway more safely at the school, located about 35 miles south of Fairbanks. Salcha Fire Chief Ernie Misewicz said turn lanes also are needed for several busy intersections along the Richardson just south of Eielson.“There’s an increase in commercial truck traffic – semi’s and what-not delivering goods back and forth,” Misewicz said. “We also have a tremendous amount of military traffic that comes through that are either going down to Greely for some maneuvers or they’re going to go up on the Johnson Road.”The chief also said the ten local fire departments that have a mutual-aid agreement with Eielson’s will need to train more before the F-35s arrive, so they’ll all be better-prepared to respond to emergencies, including those involving aircraft, that occur off-base.last_img read more

The Oak Creek, Wis. native has been on a tear over the last month, hitting .357 during that stretch with five home runs and 15 RBI. On the season, Binelas holds a .293 average and leads the Cardinals in long balls and slugging percentage. LOUISVILLE’S BACK END BULLPEN RESURGENCELouisville has consistently produced top of the line bullpen arms, many of which are spread across pro baseball. This season is no different, with the Cardinals a perfect 24-0 when leading after eight innings. In Sunday’s win over Clemson, McAvene and Kirian pitched the final six innings of the game, striking out eight with no runs and just three hits allowed. Ranked in the top 25 in all six major preseason polls for 2019, the Cardinals have earned a preseason national ranking in 11 straight seasons (2008-2018) overall.

Streamlining the Mortgage Process

first_img February 10, 2018 696 Views On Friday, February 9, MountainView Financial Solutions presented its monthly mortgage servicing rights (MSR) seminar, featuring Tim Rood, Chairman of The Collingwood Group, LLC. Rood presented a webinar entitled “Rightsizing Your Mortgage Business for 2018: Planning for the Uncertainties.” If you missed out on it when it was originally broadcast, now you can view a recording of the full webinar by clicking here.Looking forward, the webinar predicted that 2018 will definitely be a purchase market, with overall strong real estate markets in cities such as Seattle, Austin, Salt Lake City, Raleigh-Durham, and Dallas. The webinar predicted the top performing states of 2018 to be Nevada, Texas, and Florida.Las Vegas home values are expected to rise approximately 5.8 percent over the next year, having already risen 8.6 percent in 2017. On the Texas front, the webinar pointed out the influx of companies choosing to relocate or expand operations into Texas due to low taxes and a low cost of living. Home sales in Texas are expected to grow 6 percent in 2018, according to the webinar. For Florida, there is expected to be a 5 percent increase in most popular areas.The webinar highlighted several noteworthy trends from 2017, including an increased migration from large, expensive cities into more affordable mid-tier cities. The Rust Belt saw a spike in residents moving to Chicago, and Chicago, Boston, and Seattle saw the highest share of residents staying put in those respective cities.The webinar also explored the problem of data and document defects within the mortgage process. According to the webinar, a typical mortgage cycle from application to close averages 57 days, but only involves around 18 hours of “work in the file.” This is due to delays in receiving documents, and due to those documents often containing errors. According to the webinar, “40 percent of Documents Gathered are Incorrect or Deficient and go undetected for days or weeks” and “70 percent of Files are advanced Incomplete resulting in downstream Inefficiency and Rework.” Share Homebuyers Mortgage Servicing Rights Mortgages MountainView Financial Solutions The Collingwood Group.

Shipley tore his ACL and left a hole at center.Rookie offensive lineman and third-round pick Mason Cole will attempt to fill that void.The good news is Cole has the track record. He made 104 consecutive starts between his high school days and his time as a Michigan Wolverine under former NFL coach Jim Harbaugh.With how much the Cardinals are relying on a running game built around David Johnson and protecting quarterback Sam Bradford, if there was one young player you’d hope looks good in the preseason for Arizona, it would be Cole.Steve Wilks’ 4-3 defense(AP Photo/Ross D. Franklin)You can’t help but get excited to watch the wrinkles of Wilks’ defense when you hear the way Patrick Peterson talks about it. The 5: Takeaways from the Coyotes’ introduction of Alex Meruelo “Coach Wilks is just letting (DC Al Holcomb) do his thing, and I believe it’s just gonna allow us to line up and play fast football,” Peterson said in mid-June to 98.7 FM Arizona’s Sports Station’s Doug & Wolf.Some of those wrinkles include getting the most out of specific players, which Peterson described in early July to 98.7 FM’s Bickley & Marotta.“You got (safety Budda Baker) pretty much being the chess player — you don’t know what the heck he’s going to be doing. Obviously, you got Deone moving into that MIKE position right now, so we’re a little bit faster at the linebacker position … being a little bit more natural now for (defensive tackle) Robert Nkemdiche being in a 4-3 system, having him playing straightforward now.”The man going under the radar in his system that was not mentioned by Peterson is second-year linebacker and former first-round pick Haason Reddick.Part of the appeal in drafting Reddick was his versatility as a linebacker. He goes from playing defensive end in college, playing both inside and outside last season, to a more permanent role as strongside outside linebacker under Wilks.Wilks, of course, has the track record in Carolina for getting the most out of Luke Kuechly and Thomas Davis, two of the NFL’s best linebackers this decade.

Holt says his trip to North Korea was valuable despite restrictions placed upon him by his hosts. Some critics accused NBC News of presenting an air-brushed depiction of the dictatorship. But Holt and other experts say there’s a value to such trips despite the limitations. (Joe Raedle/Pool via AP, File) NEW YORK, N.Y. – NBC News anchor Lester Holt learned while going through customs in North Korea that his request to visit the heavily-fortified border with South Korea had been denied, and he was headed to a ski resort instead.His schedule was not his own, and Holt is only the latest journalist to learn the price of peeking into one of the world’s most restrictive societies. Holt’s first trip to North Korea was timely, with international tensions high and NBC weeks away from broadcasting the Winter Olympics from South Korea. But Holt and NBC also faced criticism for presenting an air-brushed view of the dictatorship.“I absolutely think the trip was worth it,” the NBC “Nightly News” anchor said. “We talk about this place, we hear the bellicose language from its leader and we hear the reaction from our country. It’s important to get on the ground. You go to a place like North Korea with your eyes wide open.”Holt’s reports began Saturday and continued after he returned to the U.S. on Tuesday — and there was a marked change in tone after he got home.Critics like former Fox News commentator Eric Bolling tweeted disgust with Holt’s on-air comment on Monday that he had been treated with respect by the North Koreans. The New York Post, in an editorial, said that “we’re still trying to figure out why NBC ‘Nightly News’ and Lester Holt decided to shill for North Korea’s dictatorship.”It was clear even from Holt’s early reporting that he was being shown only what the regime wanted him to see. While at the ski resort, he said on Sunday’s “Today” show that “what you’re seeing here certainly flies in the face of a country that’s undergoing crippling sanctions and that may be part of the reason we were invited to see this.”Still, he watched his words. Holt operated under the assumption that everything that was said, including internal editorial discussions among NBC colleagues, was being monitored while he was still in their country, he said.“I don’t want to say we censor ourselves, but you have to be mindful of the fact that you’re continuing the trip there,” he said. “You’re considerably more free when you’re out of there in how you frame certain things.”In his report Tuesday after returning home, Holt said that he hadn’t seen many cars on the road and that while the ski resort was a source of pride for the North Koreans, it appeared to only be open to the nation’s elite. He made note of apparent poverty in rural areas when he was on the road, including the preponderance of manual labour, but his NBC camera operators were told to delete video it had taken.The Tuesday report was coupled with an interview with a former North Korean turned dissident and now in hiding for fear of assassination — one that surely wouldn’t have aired while he was still in the country.“As a reporter, you always want more,” he said. “We want to be able to control where we go, who we can talk to, and we weren’t able to. That’s frustrating, but it wasn’t like we didn’t know that going in.”Network news crews need to carefully weigh the value of such trips, particularly when money is tight, said Tom Nagorski, executive vice-president of the Asia Society and a longtime executive at ABC News, where he was involved in planning the network’s overseas coverage. Ultimately, when you’re seeking a depth of understanding, there’s no substitute for travelling to the country and seeing the people, even if the picture is incomplete, he said.The true value comes in multiple trips to a country like North Korea, when a reporter becomes attuned to subtle changes in how people act and even what they wear, he said. He noted recent reporting by ABC News’ Bob Woodruff that illustrated his depth of knowledge about the country.Even when she travelled to restricted areas in North Korea, Myanmar and China, veteran Boston Globe reporter Indira Lakshmanan said she soaked up valuable information. It’s important for journalists to be up front about the limits they were placed under so viewers or readers can keep the information in context, said Lakshmanan, an analyst for the Poynter Institute.“Reporting under the strictures of a repressive regime is often the only legal and safe way into a place,” she said.Holt believes the ski resort was selected so North Koreans could show that the country wasn’t as backward as depicted. While there, he also met with sports representatives to talk about the country’s participation in the Olympics and had a meeting with a top government official that he said turned into a lecture.Holt, who said he learned three weeks ago that a longstanding request to get in the country had been approved, suggested the North Koreans were motivated “by a sense that they want to move past the nuclear issue, and to declare that ‘we are a nuclear nation, deal with it, and we want relations on another level now.’”He said that it was interesting to hear the voice of the people. “Even though you know you’re not sure that you’re hearing their true voice, it’s certainly the voice of the country.”Visits by western news organizations are rare, but not unheard of: CNN’s Will Ripley has visited North Korea 17 times since 2014. The Associated Press has maintained a video office in North Korea since 2006, and in 2012 added a text and photo bureau, the first by a western news agency. Both are staffed regularly by visiting international journalists.center_img NBC’s Holt says he approached North Korea with eyes openlast_img read more

An apparently logical conclusion is illogical

first_imgBy Christos P PanayiotidesPlease follow my reasoning. The argument of the President of the Republic in favour of a ‘decentralised’ federation is straight forward: the more decisions that will need to be taken jointly by the two federated states, the higher the risk of the Turkish Cypriot community misusing its ‘at least one-positive-vote’ prerogative (in respect of all matters that impact vital Turkish Cypriot interests) to intentionally lead the Federal Government into deadlock situations. To ensure that we do not run this risk, we Greek Cypriots have decided to assign as many competences as possible to the federated states so that each state would decide on these issues without the need to liaise with or consult the other side for the purpose of reaching an agreement or a common understanding. According to the President of the Republic, the only exceptions to this general rule should be decisions on matters that impact vital interests of the Turkish Cypriots. These matters will be pre-determined and agreed upon in the course of the “negotiations” that will lead to a settlement.I am genuinely concerned that the logic of the President’s advisors is faulty for the following very simple reason: Under the previous – substantially agreed – arrangement, the Greek Cypriot side had the power to block any decision or arrangement on any issue (which had not been defined in advance as inconsequential or of secondary importance) by simply not voting for it. In contrast, the other side would merely have had the comfort that the Greek Cypriot side would not misuse its numerical superiority to adopt positions that would unfairly impact matters of vital interest to the Turkish Cypriot side. This defensive right would emanate from the need to secure at least one (but only one) Turkish Cypriot positive vote in favour of the proposed decision or arrangement. The concept of a ‘decentralised’ federation, floated by the President’s political advisors in the relatively recent past, has effectively resulted (for reasons that are beyond my comprehension) in throwing into the dustbin the very important right of the majority of the people of Cyprus to prevent the adoption (by a segment of the population) of decisions or arrangements that would be harmful to the population of Cyprus as a whole.Let us take the worst scenario, namely the case that the Turkish Cypriot side stubbornly refuses to consent to the granting of Cyprus citizenship to third-country nationals or to the exploitation of the (hoped for) undersea wealth of Cyprus, because it considers such arrangements to be unfairly harmful to its interests. If these issues end up being classified as among those that require the consent of both sides, then the possibility of disagreement and conflict cannot be ruled out. If these issues end up being classified as among those that are inconsequential or of secondary importance, then each side will be in a position to take its own decisions, without even consulting the other side. In other words, the proposal of the Greek Cypriot side is tantamount to the abandonment of a fundamental right of the majority of the people to – at least – reject decisions or arrangements that are judged as harmful to their vital interests.Some of you may rush to argue that this possibility will be non-existent, given that the matters that will be ‘assigned’ to the individual states comprising the federation will be totally inconsequential and of secondary importance. My response to such an argument would be that I consider it inconceivable that such trivial matters would lead to a head-on collision between the two communities. It follows that the whole concept of a ‘decentralised’ federation, as understood by its proponents, is meaningless and useless. The example given by the Greek Cypriot side as to the matters that could be delegated to the constituent states is that of regulating the working hours of barbers and hair salons. Despite the significant pressure that has been exercised in the direction of providing further examples, this has not happened, save the case of the example of the hydrocarbons (on the basis that it does not impact the vital interests of the Turkish Cypriots). Understandably, this unfortunate example has been used by the Turkish Cypriot side as evidence proving the bad faith of the Greek Cypriot leadership and has inevitably undermined our credibility.Indeed, to secure the proper and efficient functioning of the Government, its operations must be regulated and coordinated at the federal level, as is the case in practice in all federated arrangements around the world. The essential ingredient of regulation, coordination and control at the federal level does not preclude the delegation of authority to the constituent states as long as such delegation does not compromise the ability of the Federal Government to protect the vital interests of all the citizens of the country.I suspect that on the issue of the ‘decentralised’ federation the President of the Republic has been misguided by consultants, who have hastily formulated their ideas and have probably failed to fully evaluate the consequences of their advice prior to making their views public. This tentative conclusion is confirmed by the total failure of the Greek Cypriot side to set out practical examples of ‘decentralised’ competences, where the failure to ‘decentralise’ would lead to conflict between the two communities. I believe that the concept of a ‘decentralised’ federation, as formulated by its proponents, is silly and the time has come to abandon the concept, which is yet another political mistake amongst the many that have led to the de facto partition of Cyprus while the de jure partition of the island is already in sight. Christos Panayiotides is a regular columnist writing in the Cyprus Mail, Sunday Mail and AlithiaYou May LikeLivestlyChip And Joanna’s $18M Mansion Is Perfect, But It’s The Backyard Everyone Is Talking AboutLivestlyUndoPopularEverythingColorado Mom Adopted Two Children, Months Later She Learned Who They Really ArePopularEverythingUndoYahoo SearchYou’ve Never Seen Luxury Like This On A Cruise Ship.
