No formal complaints on most disappearances

“In addition Sri Lanka has also strengthened its legal process,” the Sri Lankan delegation added.Meanwhile a demonstration which was scheduled to take place in Colombo today by family members of those who had disappeared, organized by the convener of the Civil Monitoring Commission Mano Ganeshan, was cancelled after several people from the north who were scheduled to take part in the demonstration were prevented from proceeding to Colombo by the police late last night. (Colombo Gazette) The government informed the UN Human Rights Council (UNHRC) today that there have not been formal complaints for over 60 percent of those alleged to have disappeared in the country.In a statement issued during the interactive dialogue with the Working Group on Enforced or Involuntary Disappearances, the government said that during the past year the Ministry of Defence has created a database to clarify cases referred by the working group. The government told the Council it has transmitted clarifications to 264 cases to the Working Group on Enforced or Involuntary Disappearances. The government says it had established an inter-agency working group comprising representatives of the Ministry of Defence, External Affairs and the Attorney General’s Department to clarify the cases of alleged disappearances and to take follow up action as deemed necessary.The Sri Lankan delegation said it has taken multiple initiatives to address allegations of disappearances including by strengthening the State’s institutional framework to deal with all aspects of disappearances. “It is noteworthy that eighty percent of the cases under consideration date back to the pre-1990 period and that in relation to more than 60 percent of the cases no formal complaints have been lodged with the law enforcement authorities,” the Sri Lankan delegation said. read more

UN aid chief calls for humanitarian truce to help Middle Easts children

Under-Secretary-General for Humanitarian Affairs and Emergency Relief Coordinator Jan Egeland, who has returned to UN Headquarters in New York from a six-day visit to Lebanon, northern Israel and the Gaza Strip, made his appeal while briefing the Security Council on the deadly and horrific destruction in the region.“We need at least 72 hours of tranquilities for the sake of the children of Lebanon and northern Israel who, I believe, we all agree are the innocent victims of this escalating conflict,” he told the 15-member body.“Civilians must be protected at any cost. If there are many more dead children in a conflict than armed men, there is something fundamentally wrong, not only with how the armed men behave and where they hide, but also with the way the response is being conducted.”He said humanitarian workers were doing all they could to alleviate the suffering but he acknowledged that “aid in itself is not the solution,” and repeated Secretary-General Kofi Annan’s call for an immediate cessation of hostilities, followed by a ceasefire agreement, the deployment of a security force and a political settlement.In a detailed briefing to the Council, he spoke of the dozens dying every day in Lebanon and said the Health Ministry now puts the civilian death toll at more than 600, adding that “the majority are women and children.” He also outlined the “devastating impact” of the conflict on the civilian population of northern Israel, where hundreds of thousands live in constant fear caused by daily Hezbollah rocket attacks.Mr. Egeland highlighted the “armed conflict and deepening social and economic crisis in Gaza, and the occupied Palestinian territory as a whole,” saying that 150 people have been killed – a quarter of them children – since the present conflict broke out in June.Speaking specifically of the Israeli attack on the power plant in Gaza, he said every single transformer had been destroyed, leaving private households, hospitals and water pumps with only three to four hours of electricity supply per day, but this was often “not synchronized with the few hours during which water is being supplied.”Further on the humanitarian front regarding assistance to Lebanon, two more aid convoys left for the devastated south of the country today, a UN spokesman told reporters. The convoys, organized in cooperation between the world body and the non-governmental organization (NGO) Médecins Sans Frontières, were sent to Sidon and Jezzine, carrying essentials including food, blankets and shelter materials.More convoys are planned for the following days, but the availability and rising prices of fuel are issues of growing concern, said the spokesman, noting that fuel prices have increased by 60 per cent because of the conflict.The World Food Programme (WFP) has also started a humanitarian cargo airlift, which will take temporary warehouses and generators to the region. But as the situation in Lebanon deteriorates, with one in five Lebanese homeless and hostilities continuing, agencies are racing against time.“There are women and children who face a daily threat not only of shelling and injury, but of having less and less food and water to sustain them. We have no time to waste in reaching them,” warned Amer Daoudi, Emergency Coordinator for the WFP operation in Lebanon. “A greater catastrophe is in the making if we don’t assist people soon.”The UN High Commissioner for Refugees (UNHCR) reported it is still waiting at the Syrian border with 500 tonnes of emergency relief supplies for more than 20,000 people, although it expects to get access to Lebanon early next week. The UN Office for the Coordination of Humanitarian Affairs (OCHA) announced that $15 million has so far been received in pledges for the $149 million flash appeal for Lebanon that was launched on Monday, adding that a further $5 million will be made available through the world body’s Central Emergency Response Fund. read more

Haiti Ban welcomes agreement reached towards swift conclusion of ongoing electoral cycle

“Acknowledging that the agreement is in the spirit of the Haitian Constitution, the Secretary-General calls on all actors concerned to implement it in order to ensure the democratic transfer of power to elected officials,” Mr. Ban said in a statement issued by his spokesperson. The UN chief also encouraged all Haitian stakeholders to continue engaging in constructive dialogue to guide their country to a stable and democratic future, which he said is essential for tackling the challenges facing the Caribbean nation. “The Secretary-General encourages all actors to promote measures aimed at fostering calm and stability,” the statement further noted, adding that Mr. Ban reaffirms the commitment of the United Nations to extend its full support to the Haitian people in the fulfillment of their democratic aspirations. On 29 January, the UN Security Council had encouraged all relevant political actors to come to an agreement by today, after the indefinite postponement of the final round of elections in Haiti – originally scheduled for 27 December. read more

Church of England rejects heartshaped gravestone for stillborn baby as it would

She also added that her husband no longer feels able to visit his son’s grave until it has a head stone in place.But Chancellor Tattersall said the headstone would not comply with the regulations relating to the church yard, adding: “Heart-shaped memorials have been historically discouraged and such memorials are liable to be trivialised by repetition.”He said that the previous erections in the graveyard were in breach of regulations and their existence did not justify allowing a fourth.Chancellor Tattersall permitted the couple permission to erect a gravestone with the words they requested, but the other decorative etchings would not be allowed. A church has banned a memorial to a stillborn baby which featured hand and footprints because they feared it would “over-sentimentalise” the graveyard.The Chancellor of the Diocese of Manchester, Geoffrey Tattersall QC, turned down a request from Natasha and Benjamin Bibby for a blue granite gravestone in the shape of a heart, etched with personal prints, in memory of their son, Kai-Jay Bibby, who was stillborn four years ago.In his role as a judge of the Church’s Consistory Court, Chancellor Tattersall stuck to strict rules over the form of gravestones.He concluded: “It seems to me that the stars, heart, hand and footprints would over-sentimentalise the memorial in a way which is undesirable and unnecessary and would be inappropriate in this particular churchyard.“Further, I have never previously come across a case where it has ever been sought or permitted to include handprints or footprints on a memorial.”The couple, from Bolton, wanted the gravestone to be erected at the Grade II listed St Saviour’s church yard in Ringley where there are already three other heart shaped gravestones. One of them marks the grave of the Kai-Jay’s great aunt, Anne Goodier, who died in 2011.Writing to the Diocesan Advisory Committee to be granted permission to erect the gravestone, Mrs Bibby said: “The shape of the stone we have chosen is a heart shape. We wish to have this shape as a heart is a symbol of love.” Want the best of The Telegraph direct to your email and WhatsApp?

Hyundai is working on a rearwheel drive electric scooter that docks in

first_img 2020 BMW M340i review: A dash of M makes everything better 9 Photos Hyundai i30 N Project C gets racier Post a comment 0 5:43 Tags Enlarge ImageThis lithium-ion-powered beauty has suspension and it’s rear-wheel drive. Hyundai Scooters are so hot right now that it seems everyone is trying to get in on them. First, we had companies like Bird and Lime, then Uber and Lyft, not to mention Segway and God knows who else, but the latest company to show up to the party is Hyundai, according to an announcement by the company on Tuesday.Yep, the South Korean car company that makes vehicles like the Veloster and the Palisade is considering producing a two-wheeled electric scooter, and here’s the kicker — it could be included with future Hyundai and Kia vehicles.If that sounds like an off-beat but cool idea, know that Hyundai didn’t think of it. Honda offered its tiny Honda City car with a foldable gasoline-powered scooter called the Motocompo in the mid-1980s, and it’s still one of the coolest things ever.Anyway, the Hyundai scooter prototype has a claimed range of 20 kilometers (that’s around 12.5 miles in old money), do approximately 12.5 mph, and unlike most of those lame rental scooters, this baby is rear-wheel drive. Do you know what that means? Wheelies, dude. Wheelies.It’ll be powered by a lithium-ion battery, and when the scooter is docked in a vehicle it’ll automatically recharge said battery. Other cool features include the addition of suspension to the scooter’s front wheel, so as you silently waft your way through a major city, you don’t rattle your fillings out because of dilapidated infrastructure.”This is the vehicle-mounted personal scooter [that] could be featured in future Hyundai Motor Group vehicles,” said DongJin Hyun, head of the Hyundai Motor Group Robotics team. “We want to make our customers’ lives as easy and enjoyable as possible. Our personal electric scooter makes first- and last-mile commuting a joy, while helping to reduce congestion and emissions in city centers.”Future developments could, according to Hyundai, include a regenerative braking system that would be able to recover up to 7% of the vehicle’s battery charge. Hyundai makes no mention of whether it’ll be able to do sick tail-whips at the skate park though.

Ketchikan Kings reclaim state title after 45 years

first_imgKings head coach Eric Stockhausen says because of the schedule and changes implemented this season, he told the team they likely would lose games early in the season but end up victorious in the end.“The kids bought into everything that we were trying to do as a program. They were very selfless and very tightly-knit all season long,” Stockhausen said. “Through some adversity, our kids just kept the course and kept encouraging each other and believing in each other and believing in me and it worked out for us and our community.”Stockhausen says because they had fewer taller players this year, and some players were coming off injuries, he changed strategy this season to fit the players’ strengths. He says there were no seniors on the team last year, this year there were eight. Stockhausen says team members grew up together, playing in Ketchikan Dribbler’s League before joining school sports. He says they also are close friends off the court.“In practice, they were much more competitive than they were last year. Everybody was much more focused,” Stockhausen said. “They were able to correct each other this year, which was more of a difficulty last year, and, like I said, the kids just bought in to everything I asked them to do, and they did it. And exceeded expectations or at least met them in every situation.”The Kings were the eighth-seeded team in the eight team tournament. Stockhausen says that ranking was based on games played in January, which they did not win. In February and March, the team was scoring wins. He says being ranked eighth gave them motivation. Stockhausen says the coaches used two words to tell the team what they needed to do – poise and intensity.“Poise on offense, which our kids showed great poise during tough times and lots of pressure, and the intensity was obvious,” Stockhausen said. “We played great defense and that was the key to our championship run.”In the first round, the Kings played top-seeded East Anchorage High School. Ketchikan fell behind in the first quarter but rallied back to win 60-58. The Kings played Soldotna High School in the semi-finals, again coming from behind to win 53-48. Saturday’s championship game with Dimond went into overtime, and as the clock ticked down, Stockhausen told the team to just have fun.“Whether we won or lost that game, it’s not going to change how those kids are going to do. They’re going to be successful men, fathers, husbands the rest of their lives,” Stockhausen said. “But it meant so much to the community, and all the people reaching out and the memories that were brought back for our community. Forty-five years is a long time to want something.”The Ketchikan Kings basketball team last held the state title in 1974. This year’s win marks the Kings ninth state title. L-R Rear: Asst.

Howard Grad Returns to Roots in Senate Race

first_imgCalifornia Attorney General Kamala Harris (Twitter Photo)WASHINGTON – Kamala Harris, the California attorney general and the early odds-on favorite to become the state’s first Black U.S. senator, returned to her Howard University roots during homecoming week to raise money and reconnect with her sorority members, longtime friends and supporters.Harris, who political experts say is the frontrunner in the race to replace retiring Sen. Barbara Boxer, hosted a few private events and fundraisers last week to further solidify her network of supporters.“I came to reconnect with friends and supporters and hear their concerns,” she said.Howard, she said, has been a special place in her career and her life. “Howard is really a place that teaches us who we can be, and most importantly teaches us we can be anybody,” she said.The attorney general said it was important to meet with her fellow members of Alpha Kappa Alpha Sorority’s Alpha Chapter, which was founded in 1908 at Howard University.“My sorors support me spiritually and professionally,” Harris said.  “That’s the great thing about a sisterhood.”Harris’ time at Howard was spent studying economics and political science, arguing on the debate team and working with Howard University Student Association (HUSA).It was at Howard where she won her first election, becoming the freshman class representative the College of Arts and Sciences.  The experience molded her political career and sense of duty towards people who need their voices to be heard, she said.“I was working with HUSA in our tiny office creating priorities around folks that needed a voice,” she said.After graduating from Howard in 1986, Harris returned to her hometown in the San Francisco Bay area and earned a degree from University of California Hastings College of the Law. Harris was deputy district attorney of Alameda County and district attorney of San Francisco before receiving the Democratic nomination for California attorney general in 2010.One of Harris’ main priorities has been to reduce recidivism among California inmates.  According to the California Department of Corrections and Rehabilitation 2013 Report, 61 percent of California inmates find themselves back in institutions within three years of release. Harris, California’s first Black woman attorney general, said as she talked with friends and others during homecoming week, they were focused on, “criminal justice reform, early education, minimum wage, the environment and immigration.”Harris said she hopes to influence   young women to be persistent and determined in chasing their own success.“I always want to encourage young girls to never listen to or hear the word ‘no’,” Harris said, “I eat that word for breakfast. I hear ‘no’ maybe on the fifth time.”last_img read more

Bengal Heritage Foundation to commemorate Dwarkanath Tagores death anniversary in London

first_imgKolkata: The Bengal Heritage Foundation is organising a function at Kensal Green Cemetery, London on Saturday to commemorate the death anniversary of Prince Dwarkanath Tagore.A close friend of Queen Victoria, Prince Albert and King Louis Phillipe of France, Tagore was buried at Kensal Green Cemetery in London.A bust of Dwarkanath and a plaque containing his contribution will be unveiled to honour the entrepreneur, philanthropist and the first successful businessman, who took up Indo-British trade. Also Read – Rain batters Kolkata, cripples normal lifeThe function will be organized jointly by the British Council, iLEAD College (Kolkata), Friends of Kensal Green (London) and London Sharad Utsav (London).Sourav Niyogi of Bengal Heritage Foundation noted: “Very few Indians are aware of Prince Dwarkanath Tagore’s tomb in London. From coal to banking to trading, he successfully set the foundation of an industrial Bengal and internationalisation of India. Our effort is a humble tribute to this great son of Bengal and to keep his heritage alive for the future generations. As a first step, the monument has been cleaned after 28 years using Thermatech technology using conservation principles.” Also Read – Speeding Jaguar crashes into Mercedes car in Kolkata, 2 pedestrians killedThe Kensal Green Cemetery stands on a land of 72-acre and there are over 65,000 graves.Dwarkanath (1794-1846) was the first Bengali merchant-entrepreneur to set up an Indo-British business partnership (Carr, Tagore and Co.) that traded in salt, sugar, tea, coal, indigo and steam navigation. Tagore was a visionary, who believed in multi-racial collaboration with the British.Tagore was a signatory to the anti-Sati petition along with Rammohun Roy, who died in Bristol in 1833 and lies buried there. Tagore visited Britain twice in 1842 and 1845 and was a personal friend of Queen Victoria, Prince Albert and King Louis Phillipe of France. Feted by literary giants Charles Dickens, William Makepeace Thackeray and many others, Tagore was granted the Freedom of the City of Edinburgh in a public ceremony in August 1842 for his ‘anxious desire to promote happiness and prosperity of his fellowcountrymen’.He died at Brown’s Hotel in London on August 1, 1846 and was buried without ceremony three days later.Queen Victoria and Prince Albert sent four carriages for the funeral.last_img read more

Report Twitter to List on NYSE Fearing IPO Mishap on Nasdaq

first_img Twitter reportedly plans to list itself on the New York Stock Exchange rather than the Nasdaq when it becomes a publicly traded company.The reason for avoiding Nasdaq, which lists many tech companies, is the fear of a glitch-plagued IPO like the one Facebook suffered last year, according to an exclusive report by TheStreet.com. Facebook’s first trading day was a mess of delays and technical problems that led to some trades not going through. The Securities and Exchange Commission fined Nasdaq $10 million for the botched IPO, citing Nasdaq’s “poorly designed systems and hasty decision-making.”Twitter’s IPO, which will likely take place in late 2013 or early 2014, is expected to bring in about $1.5 billion for the social network, TheStreet.com reports.Twitter did not respond to Entrepreneur.com’s request for comment.On September 12, Twitter announced via its own social network that it had confidentially filed paperwork with the Securities and Exchange Commission for a planned IPO. The confidential filing was made possible by a provision of the JOBS Act that went into effect last year.The stealth filing option is only available for companies with less than $1 billion in annual revenue. Twitter is expected to earn $583 million in advertising revenue this year, and come close to $1 billion in ad earnings next year.Like many companies on the verge of an IPO, Twitter is seeking a line of revolving credit. With Goldman Sachs said to be leading the IPO, that leaves rival firms JPMorgan Chase and Morgan Stanley — who also reportedly will have roles in the IPO — to lead the credit line of $500 million to $1 billion. This stockpile of cash will keep Twitter flush in the event that its market debut has to be put on hold.Related: Wall Street to Nasdaq: What’s Your Problem?

2 killed in explosion at Kurdish rally in Turkey

first_img New Valley school lets students pick career-path academies It wasn’t immediately clear how many of the injured were seriously hurt. Health Minister Mehmet Muezzinoglu had earlier said around 50 people were injured in the incident and 20 to 24 of them were being treated in hospitals.Rally organizers first said a malfunctioning power distribution unit caused the explosions, but Energy Minister Taner Yildiz later dismissed that. He said they were caused by an “external interference” with the power unit, though he did not say whether he believed a bomb was involved.The explosions come at a tense time, two days before Sunday’s parliamentary elections in Turkey, in which the Kurdish votes will be critical.The party is vying to pass the threshold of 10 percent of total votes required to take seats in parliament. If it succeeds, it could make it impossible for the ruling AKP to reach a supermajority in parliament. That would scuttle the AKP’s ambitions to introduce a new constitution and change Turkey’s parliamentary system into a presidential system that could give President Recep Tayyip Erdogan executive powers.Prime Minister Ahmet Davutoglu said authorities would investigate the cause of the explosions.“Whatever is behind this incident — whether it was a power transformer explosion, an assassination attempt, an act of provocation — we shall investigate it,” he said. “I call on my brothers in Diyarbakir: Please beware of exploitation of the incident and provocations. No one should be involved in provocations.” The rally was cancelled but a large group of youths remained at the site, protesting the explosions. Some threw stones at a police water cannon that moved in to disperse the crowd.Demirtas urged calm.“Whatever the cause, I invite the people to retain their common sense,” Demirtas told CNN-Turk television by telephone. “Whatever happens, Turkey is in need of peace.”Demirtas said some of the injured lost limbs.Earlier this week, assailants fired on a HDP campaign vehicle, killing its driver.

In total, Skye Suites at Arc by Crown Group will host 73 serviced apartments; including studio suites one-bedroom suites and two-bedroom suites. The second phase of the project will see the remaining residential suites, rooftop and retail precinct complete in November 2018.Committed to luxury experiences for guests, each superior-sized apartment suite features timeless interior finishes, complete with Delonghi appliances, Vittoria coffee machines, Kevin Murphy toiletries and haircare products, complimentary Wi-Fi, laundry facilities, pre-stocked mini bar and a bespoke bedding firmness menu. Modern facilities will delight even the most seasoned business traveller with an ice-cave themed lobby and pool, and state-of-the-art gymnasium.The building itself is an impressive centrepiece for Sydney’s CBD, achieved by globally renowned architect, Koichi Takada. In collaboration with Crown Group, Koichi’s vision will come to life creating a soaring icon of style with arched metal fins that cantilever and curve over the exclusive Horizon Lounge and rooftop, shaping the skyline with a gentle and organic form. The arches filter throughout the project, from the ice-cave themed lobby through to the arch balconies of the suites. Offering hotel guests private balconies and fresh air, the development features a masonry façade podium and glazed frontage inspired by the unique character of significant heritage buildings.Designed to enrich and regenerate public amenity in the CBD, Crown Group have worked collaboratively to restore Skittle Lane which will host Reflect, public art created by Ramus Illumination. Reflect will be an illuminated sculpture stretching 12 metres across the atrium, comprised of a steel frame, stainless wires and thousands of LED lights. Reflective of a path of flight through the air itself, the artwork will shift its palette of colour and movement in lights according the sound and movement of people beneath it.Skittle Lane was originally built in the late 1980s as a laneway to service the surrounding warehouses and was used as a bowling alley for sailors and soldiers. Using trachyte blocks, Skittle Lane has been repurposed to act as a pedestrian and boutique retail thoroughfare comprising an 8-storey atrium, linking King Street with Kent Street and Clarence Street.Adding to Crown Group’s already extensive portfolio of retail and hospitality venues, SKYE Suites Sydney will offer guests and Sydneysiders fine dining and al fresco experiences with an exciting new food hub along Skittle Lane to open in November 2018; featuring new offerings from some of Sydney’s most popular restaurants, including Japanese restaurant Izakaya & Ramen Michi from Masuya Group and Ministry of Coffee. With the likes of Masuya Restaurant, Sushi Bar Makoto in Chatswood and MISO Japanese Restaurant to their name, Izakaya & Ramen Michi owners Katsuyoshi Sadamatsu and Jun Toyoda will offer fresh sushi, sashimi and sake.Crown Group are leading the way in technology and design led serviced apartments within the industry, allowing guests to download a mobile phone application, SKYE Suites, and access their rooms with a swipe of a room key from their phone. Guests can download the app from the iPhone and Android app store which will also give them access to information about the local area, including nearby tourist sites, restaurants, cafes and shopping places. This information will also be available to guests from a tablet in their room, allowing them click through access to make reservation bookings and purchase tickets to events within Sydney’s CBD and surrounding areas.Crown Group Director of Hotels and Suites, Wayne Taranto, says, “Appealing to domestic and international visitors, and business travellers, SKYE Suites Sydney will offer short-term stay guests a taste of luxury lifestyle in the heart of Sydney’s CBD. The location of SKYE Suites Sydney is within easy walking distance to the International Convention Centre, Darling Square, Barangaroo precinct and transport that connects to the rest of the city.”“This is an exciting project for Sydney as Arc by Crown Group will be the first collection of serviced apartments to redefine the west corridor of the city – tapping into the business and financial district of the CBD. We are thrilled to be offering a luxury boutique and service orientated apartments for guests and Sydneysiders,” concludes Taranto.SKYE Suites Sydney comes after Crown Group’s move into the luxury hotel arena with SKYE Hotel Suites Parramatta which opened in August 2017. Crown Group Chairman and Group CEO, Iwan Sunito, says, “We are incredibly excited to open our doors to SKYE Suites Sydney after such success in Parramatta. This architectural masterpiece in the city’s CBD will not only form a striking addition to Sydney’s skyline, but will enhance the existing streetscape for domestic and international guests, and Sydneysiders.” Source = SKYE Suites Sydneylast_img read more

Analysts RecordLow Rates Give Weak Boost to Refinances

first_img Agents & Brokers Attorneys & Title Companies Capital Economics CoreLogic Investors Lenders & Servicers Mortgage Rates Processing Refinance Service Providers 2012-10-12 Esther Cho It was no surprise when mortgage rates dropped in the weeks following the “”Fed’s announcement””:http://www.dsnews.com/articles/fomc-adopts-familiar-looking-stimulus-plan-2012-09-13 that it would purchase $40 billion of agency mortgage-backed securities (MBS) each month until the labor market shows substantial improvement. [IMAGE] Even with the record-low mortgage rates seen today, refinancing numbers are still not as high as expected. In “”CoreLogic’s””:http://www.corelogic.com most recent “”MarketPulse report””:http://www.corelogic.com/downloadable-docs/MarketPulse_2012-October.pdf?WT.mc_id=prnw_121012_Tv9Jf, Sam Khater and Molly Boesel noted, “”the overall level of refinancing is still low given current mortgage rates, and there are still many homeowners nationwide with above market rates.”” Despite the new expansions from HARP 2.0, including the removal of its 125 percent LTV ceiling, other restrictions are still preventing homeowners from refinancing. One of those restrictions is a HARP guideline that makes borrowers ineligible if they obtained their GSE-backed mortgaged after May 31, 2009. [COLUMN_BREAK] CoreLogic conducted an analysis to find out who would be excluded from HARP based this particular requirement. According to its analysis, CoreLogic found that “”lifting the restriction on origination date would expand eligibility of HARP by an additional 2 percent of currently outstanding mortgage, or approximately one million borrowers.””The report found that those borrowers who are ineligible based on their origination date have an average mortgage rate of 5.22 percent and would save an average of $333 a month. The authors suggested removing the origination date restriction to extend HARP benefits to an additional one million borrowers, who could then use the savings as an economic stimulus. “”Capital Economics””:http://www.capitaleconomics.com/ also discussed the weak impact of low mortgage rates on refinancing in an analysis wrapping up economic news for the week. Authored by economists Paul Ashworth and Paul Dales, the report did acknowledge that low mortgage rates led to a surge in mortgage applications, especially for refinancing. Despite the surge, Capital Economics noted refinancing applications still didn’t rise above levels seen in early 2009 when interest rates were also declining. Rather than focusing on what’s specifically preventing HARP refinancings, Capital Economics provided a more general picture of what is happening in refinancing. “”This illustrates how big a restraint it is that almost half of mortgage borrowers can’t qualify to refinance because, thanks to the collapse in home prices and tighter lending standards, they don’t have the 20% in home equity needed to qualify,”” the research firm observed.
