Vancouver home sales fall nearly 40 per cent in January, as prices pull back

Vancouver’s once red-hot housing market continued to cool last month as the number of home sales fell to the lowest level seen in January in 10 years.The Real Estate Board of Greater Vancouver says 1,103 homes were sold in Metro Vancouver last month, down 39.3 per cent from the same month a year earlier.Month-over-month, January home sales were up 2.9 per cent versus December 2018.The board says last month’s home sales were 36.3 per cent below the 10-year sales average for January, and the lowest January sales figure recorded since 2009.The composite benchmark price for a property, which includes detached properties, townhomes and condominiums, dropped 4.5 per cent from a year ago to $1,019,600.Sales of detached homes fell 30.4 per cent year over year, while the benchmark price pulled back 9.1 per cent from January 2018 to $1,453,400.The benchmark price of an attached home last month dipped 0.3 per cent year-over-year to $800,600, while the benchmark price of a condominium fell 1.7 per cent to $658,600.The board says home prices across all property types have fallen over the region in the past seven months, pressured by the federal government’s mortgage stress test that tightened homebuying rules last year.“This measure, coupled with an increase in mortgage rates, took away as much as 25 per cent of purchasing power from many home buyers trying to enter the market,” said the board’s president, Phil Moore, in a statement.The Canadian Press read more

COLUMBUS, Ohio — An Ohio hospital system says it’s firing 23 more employees and changing leadership after investigating excessive painkiller doses given to dozens of patients who died.The Mount Carmel Health System announcement Thursday comes five weeks after the Columbus-area doctor accused of ordering the doses, William Husel (HYOO’-suhl), pleaded not guilty to murder charges in 25 deaths.Mount Carmel says the newly fired employees include five physician, nursing and pharmacy management team members. The CEO says he’s resigning this month, and the chief clinical officer is retiring in September.Mount Carmel fired Husel earlier.

WestJet Airlines looks to launch new nofrills airline later this year

A pilot taxis a Westjet Boeing 737-700 plane to a gate after arriving at Vancouver International Airport on February 3, 2014. WestJet Airlines Ltd. will launch a new discount carrier later this year in a bid to offer travellers a no-frills, low-cost option, the company said on Thursday.THE CANADIAN PRESS/Darryl Dyck WestJet Airlines looks to launch new no-frills airline later this year by The Canadian Press Posted Apr 20, 2017 6:28 am MDT Last Updated Apr 20, 2017 at 3:20 pm MDT AddThis Sharing ButtonsShare to TwitterTwitterShare to FacebookFacebookShare to RedditRedditShare to 電子郵件Email CALGARY – WestJet Airlines Ltd. (TSX:WJA) will launch a new discount carrier later this year in a bid to offer travellers a no-frills, low-cost option, the company said on Thursday.Chief executive Gregg Saretsky said the airline industry has changed since the company began flying in 1996.“The complete unbundling of services and products in order to lower fares for the price-sensitive traveller has created the ULCC (ultra-low-cost carrier) category,” he said in a statement.“Our new airline will provide Canadians a pro-competitive, cheap and cheerful flying experience from a company with a proven track record.”Since WestJet started as a discount carrier with three aircraft in Western Canada, airlines have trimmed the extras and started charging for things like checked baggage and meals on flights.But ultra-low-cost carriers take it a step further.No-frill airlines typically offer cheaper tickets by adding seats to their planes — which reduces legroom — and also charge extra for nearly everything, including printing your boarding pass at the airport, as well as snacks and non-alcoholic drinks.WestJet did not reveal any pricing details for its new offering or where it plans to fly, but said the yet-to-be-named carrier will be using “high-density” aircraft.The airline also said the new carrier is subject to agreement with its pilots and any required regulatory approvals.The announcement came the same day that the Air Line Pilots Association, International announced that WestJet’s pilots filed membership cards with the Canada Industrial Relations Board seeking a vote to form a union, something they rejected in a 2015 vote.The association said it expects a secret-ballot election will be held in May after the board verifies the membership cards.AltaCorp Capital analyst Chris Murray says the launch of a so-called flanker brand complicates the plans of others looking to start an ultra-low cost carrier in Canada and protects WestJet from market erosion.“Historically, other ULCC’s including Spirit Airlines and Ryanair have generated above average returns in their markets and we believe WestJet could see similar returns,” Murray wrote in a report.However, Murray noted that several details remain unknown including how the airline will be structured and its plans for growth.National Bank analyst Cameron Doerksen said the new airline can only be successful if WestJet is able to negotiate separate lower labour costs with its crew who will work in the flights.“We also believe the ULCC may cannibalize some current traffic on WestJet’s mainline,” Doerksen wrote in the report.“Finally, we are concerned WestJet has too many new strategic initiatives underway simultaneously, including a major expansion of its widebody international routes.”Air Canada launched its discount brand Rouge with flights in 2013 servicing Europe and the Caribbean. The service has grown to add destinations within Canada, Mexico, the U.S., South America, Central America, Africa and Asia.Last year, NewLeaf Travel started offering “no-frills” flights between smaller airports including Kelowna, B.C., Abbotsford, B.C., Edmonton, Calgary, Winnipeg, Hamilton, Moncton, N.B., and Halifax.Together with regional airline WestJet Encore, which it launched in 2013, WestJet offers scheduled flights to more than 100 destinations in North America, Central America, the Caribbean and Europe. read more

Oregon court backs Gorge air quality study

first_imgThe Oregon Court of Appeals this week affirmed the approach of a broad study of air quality in the Columbia River Gorge. The ruling backs a decade-long effort by the Columbia River Gorge Commission and its partners in both Washington and Oregon.The long-term study aims to form a definitive plan for measuring and ultimately improving air quality in and around the Columbia River Gorge National Scenic Area. U.S. Forest Service officials had called for an evaluation as early as 1991, according to the commission.The study combines the efforts of both states, the commission, native tribes, the forest service and Gorge communities. Scientists involved have emphasized the importance of a regional approach focused on improving air quality within the Gorge and surrounding areas.Friends of the Columbia Gorge, petitioners in the court case, had argued that the air quality strategy should include more Gorge-specific regulations, according to the commission. But the court ultimately ruled in the commission’s favor.last_img read more

Urban gatherers find free salads outside their doors

first_imgMatthew Lohr gathers nettles near the Chester Creek Trail. Hillman/KSKALooking for salad ingredients? Want a new type of tea? No need to head to the store, just look outside your door–even if you live in the middle of the city. Some Anchorage residents are urban gatherers.Download Audio:Matthew Lohr rides his bike up the Chester Creek Trail in midtown Anchorage and pulls off to the side, not far from a busy road.“So this is a spot I go to in the spring a lot,” he says, pointing to a shady field of horsetails and nettles. “And it’s kind of fun ’cause when you’re standing on the trail, you really don’t notice there’s a lot of nettles here. But once you start walking in it, all underneath here, this is all nettles.”He bends down and starts plucking off the top two tender leaves with his bare hands, despite the fact that stinging nettles, well, sting.“I kind of relish the sting because it’s a reminder that spring is here,” he quips.The fuzzy, jagged-edged leaves fill his bag. Lohr’s getting enough for the evening’s stir-fry and some extras to dry for the upcoming winter. He says gathering is a fun way to stay engaged with the environment and provide friends with healthy, local foods.Lohr is an urban gatherer,one of the people you see on the side of the trail with grocery sacks filled with dandelion greens, fiddlehead ferns, fireweed shoots, and even devil’s club. Michelle Wilbur is another.Young nettles near horsetails. Hillman/KSKA“Everybody knows Devil’s Club, right? You’re not going to mistake Devil’s Club,” says Michelle Wilbur, who leads wild edibles walks for Alaska Community Action on Toxics and gathers for her family. “In the early spring you go out and see these big spiky stalks coming up and you think, ‘There’s nothing I would want to eat about that.’ And the name makes you think they would be ultimately poisonous.”Wilbur leads wild edible walks for Alaska Community Action on Toxics and gathers for her own family.She fingers a tiny, pale green shoot. “But the new little shoots, when they first come out, the spines are furry instead of spiney in the very beginning. So you need to get them really early. It’s way too late right to pick devil’s club.”She hands me a tiny shoot, one of the last of the season, and describes it like a hoppy IPA.“It reminds me of really bitter carrots,” I reply.On the grass, Wilbur displays a wild-harvested salad bar. The greens are lemony and sharp or bitter or nutty. Wilbur says they’re loaded with nutrients and grow everywhere, you just need a knowledgeable friend or a guidebook to make sure you gather the right ones.“Every year when I’m putting in these annual gardens, and I’m going out and harvesting all these nettles that nobody’s tending, and there’s huge plots of them I think ‘Why? Why don’t I just harvest nettles instead of babying these little broccoli starts along?’ But they’re both good,” she laughs.Wilbur emphasizes you need to be aware of your surroundings when you harvest. Don’t clear out an area — just pick a few so the plants can grow back.And make sure the plants you’re picking haven’t been sprayed with herbicides or pesticides.Tim Stallard, the invasive plant program coordinator with the Anchorage Parks Foundation, says herbicides are used sparingly in the city’s parks to kill things like the invasive flowery, sweet-smelling Bird Cherry.“The Bird Cherry is like the Medusa where if you cut off its head, it grows ten more. If you just cut it down then the stump will sprout and the roots themselves can sprout up to 30 feet away.”So they apply herbicides directly to the stumps They also do limited spraying for Canada Thistle when necessary. For larger projects they get approval from community councils first and always post signs to let people know about the chemicals. But Stallard says people gathering food need to use common sense.“If you go into an area and see dead plants or damaged plants, you know obviously, something’s not right. And that something’s not right should trigger in their mind, and you wouldn’t want to gather plants in that area.”Back on the Chester Creek Trail, Lohr digs his fingers into the soil to harvest a dandelion root.“So this isn’t that big. If it’s looser soil, I’ve found that you’ll get bigger roots,” he says, holding up a scraggly piece.When he gathers enough, he’ll dry them, grind them, and make a hot tea-like beverage. But for now, he tears off a leaf and starts eating.last_img read more

North Pacific Fishery Management Council sets intentions towards new entrants

first_imgWhen it comes to trawl bycatch management in the Gulf of Alaska, many members of the fishing industry are concerned about the future for new entrants.Two bycatch options currently before the North Pacific Fishery Management Council are alternative two, which would award catch based on harvesters’ historical participation, and alternative three, which would allocate the bycatch species among catcher boats.Regardless of the pros and cons of each one, people are wary of established harvesters  dominating the market. At Monday’s meeting in Kodiak, Council commissioner Sam Cotten proposed an overarching goal and objective statement that includes maintaining opportunities of entry.Cotten said the state’s intent is to ensure that future participants have a similar pathway to entry as currently exists.Later, he referenced Kodiak’s letter of input to the Council.“Kodiak’s also made it very clear in their letter that they’re not interested in putting up any barriers for new processors,” Cotten said. “Alternative two may do that. The community of Kodiak has also asked specifically for active participation requirements as a gate to entering the fishery.”Cotten mentioned one criticism that some people have brought up against alternative two – that it would limit new entry. Some say it would make entering the fisheries too expensive. Meanwhile, proponents for alternative three say it might open up access to entrants, and those against it say that it does little to stop the race for fish.When it came time for comment, Councilman Craig Cross took issue with some wording in the statement, that the bycatch program should maintain the opportunity for entry by “limiting the duration of harvest privileges that may be allocated” with regard to target species and / or prohibited species.“I’m a little confused because you’re being very prescriptive about one particular way to maintain opportunity, and there’s many more that we could do, and so I’m just wondering if your intent is to limit it with just that one, or if it’s just an example?” Cotten said. “But I think we would – you as the commissioner – and the council we’d want to have the opportunity to use many things to maintain opportunity.”For instance, loan programs and set-asides, which Cotten said are also viable options, to which Cross responded that they need to do some wordsmithing to make that clear in the statement.Councilman Glenn Merrill suggested an amendment to the motion, which altered the language as follows.“The overarching goal of the Gulf of Alaska Trawl Bycatch Management program is to promote the fleet tools for the effective management and reduction of PSC and bycatch, and promote increased utilization of both target and secondary species while minimizing economic barriers for new participants by limiting harvest privileges that may be allocated (target species and/or prohibited species) to maintain opportunity for entry into the GOA trawl fisheries,” Merrill said.The main motion passed with that amendment included and may be subject to public comment in the future.Furthermore, while the Council did not decide on a bycatch alternative at its meeting, it did adopt a series of revisions to the alternatives on the table.last_img read more

LeBron James and Steph Curry are the only superstars in the NBAJohn Wall froze in the fourth quarter of Game 7 against the Celtics, and kicked away his chance to elevate himself into the elite echelon of NBA stars by winning a second round playoff series. Colin has had it with the NBA media trying to push Wall and other really good players as superstar caliber.He thinks there are only two legitimate superstars in the NBA, LeBron and Steph Curry, everyone else at least a step below. It’s nothing against John Wall, he’s amazing, but the same thing happened last night that happened to Westbrook and Harden. He was shot when his team needed him most at the end of a playoff series.“Stop trying to engineer superstars. Enjoy the ones you have.” The Lakers are in deep trouble if they don’t get a Top 3 pickThe NBA Draft Lottery is tonight, and Colin explained why if the Lakers don’t land a Top 3 pick, it would be another devastating set back for an organization that’s been spinning their wheels to escape from irrelevancy for the past 4 years.With a 46.9% chance of landing a protected Top 3 pick, the odds don’t warrant the level of optimism currently circulating in L.A. In Colin’s opinion, if the ping pong balls don’t bounce their way and they lose their pick to Philly, it’s going to crush any chances they have to fast track their way out of the NBA basement.Even if they land the Top 3 pick and select Lonzo Ball, it’s not going to turnaround overnight.“The most likely scenario: they are doomed.”last_img read more

Mozilla is working on Firefox multitab management

first_imgMozilla is working on Firefox multi-tab management by Martin Brinkmann on May 14, 2018 in Firefox – 25 commentsMozilla is working on a new feature for the organization’s Firefox web browser currently which adds multi-tab management capabilities to the browser.Firefox does not support multi-tab operations right now; if you want to close, move or bookmark sites open in multiple tabs in the browser right now, you will have to do so one after the other.The upcoming multi-tab management options enable you to run operations on several tabs at once in Firefox to make things more comfortable.Firefox is not the first browser to support multiple tab selections and operations. The web browsers Vivaldi and Opera support multi-tab selections.Firefox multi-tab managementFirefox users may use the Ctrl (Command on Mac) key on the keyboard to select multiple tabs in the browser once the feature lands. A right-click on the selection displays a context menu with options to run operations on all supported tabs.The Shift-key is mapped to selecting a row of tabs, and users who prefer to use the mouse for that can right-click on the tab bar to pick the new entry ” select all tabs” to do so.Mozilla plans to unlock all tab operations for multiple tabs; in other words, you can close, pin, bookmark, send, or move the tab selection using the right-click context menu.Mozilla plans to add a new “move tab” menu which you may use to move a single tab to the start or end of the current tab bar, or to a new window. Similarly, there will be a new close tab menu to close tabs to the right, close other tabs, or close duplicate tabs in the web browser.The tab manager, the little down arrow icon located on the right-side of the tab bar, displays tab related operations and all open tabs in all browser windows as well.Tab operations include muting all tabs, bookmarking or reloading tabs, or closing and undo closing tabs.The functionality is not yet live in Firefox, not even in Nightly. Mozilla did add the main preference for the multi-tab management functionality of the Firefox browser though.Load about:config?filter=browser.tabs.multiselect in the Firefox address bar.Confirm that you are careful if the warning prompt is displayed.Double-click on the preference to set it to true.A value of true enables the new feature, a value of false (default) disables it. The only effect setting the parameter to true has right now is that you can select multiple tabs in Firefox and that these tabs are displayed in bold.Closing WordsMulti-tab management is a welcome feature in my opinion as it improves tab handling in the browser. While you may not need it if you work with less than a dozen tabs in Firefox all the time, users who work with multiples of that may appreciate the new functionality.Now You: What is your take on the new feature?

Somers said some fans may see Kolb as a player who lackspassion, that his attitude of “what will be, will be” is asign he doesn’t really care.“I don’t think that’s the case at all,” Somers said. “Ireally think, as much as any player can, I think he triesto take that attitude that this is a business and teamsare going to do whatever they’re going to do.”That means if his time in Arizona ends after one season,Kolb will understand and, at 28-years-old, find somewhereelse to work. Assuming Manning doesn’t come to Arizona, though, theCards will have to turn the reins over to someone who theywere possibly looking to replace. That could mean soothingsome hurt feelings.“I think he would be hurt in the sense that maybe there’snot the commitment to him that he thought there was, but Ithink he’s tougher than that, I don’t think he will gointo a shell,” Somers said. “I think in that case, theCardinals — or any other team in that situation — couldgo to their number one quarterback and say ‘look, we had achance to get a premier quarterback, maybe the best in theleague, a Hall of Famer, and we rolled the dice.’” D-backs president Derrick Hall: Franchise ‘still focused on Arizona’center_img What an MLB source said about the D-backs’ trade haul for Greinke The Cardinals could put an end to the Peyton Manningrumors by coming out and saying they will be payingKevin Kolb his $7 million roster bonus and won’t beparting with the QB less than a year after trading forhim.But that hasn’t happened.“I fully expect this team to be interested, at least kickthe tires on the situation,” Arizona Republic Cardinalsbeat writer Kent Somers told Arizona Sports 620’s Burnsand Gambo of the Cardinals and Manning. The fact that the Cardinals have not come out and said itwon’t happen could just be standard operating procedure,as Somers noted the Cardinals don’t like talking aboutmoves that haven’t happened. Still, with Manning being linked to Arizona and the Cardspossibly being a QB away from being a playoff team again,it would make plenty of sense if they were interested inthe future Hall of Famer.“I don’t think there’s any doubt that they’re sittingback, looking at the timing of the whole Manning situationand are curious to see how it’s going to play out,” Somerssaid.Given that Manning will have his choice of teams oncereleased by the Colts, it stands to reason he may notchoose Arizona. If that’s the case, the team will likelyturn to Kolb in hopes he will be the player they thoughthe would be. Asked if the rumored pursuit of Manning has affectedKolb’s demeanor, Somers said he hasn’t seen anythingindicating that is the case.“He’s not sweating it,” Somers said of Kolb’s reaction tothe rumors. “It’s kind of the attitude Kevin hadthroughout this whole year, in dealing with the trade andthe contract and the pressure being on him.” 0 Comments   Share   last_img read more
