US Fed warns Bank of Montreal on antimoney laundering controls

TORONTO — The Bank of Montreal and its U.S. subsidiary have agreed to beef up efforts to combat money laundering after American authorities found its operations in Chicago lacking.The Canadian bank, U.S. Federal Reserve and an Illinois state agency have signed an agreement that gives BMO until late July to submit an acceptable plan for resolving the short-comings.Among other things, the document says state and federal authorities identified problems when they examined the bank’s branch in Chicago, where its BMO Harris Bank is based. The Fed said Friday the bank “lacked effective systems of governance and internal controls to adequately oversee” compliance with anti-money laundering rules.Details of the deficiencies weren’t disclosed in the document but it outlined steps for BMO to take including improved oversight by its board of directors and better internal training and reporting within the bank’s organization. Bank of Montreal operates a U.S. consumer lending business in the U.S. Midwest through its Chicago-based BMO Harris Bank unit.The agreement, dated April 29 and made public on Friday, outlines several deadlines for BMO to meet including an acceptable a written plan within 90 days and regular progress reports.The bank said it was working to correct the problems.“BMO is fully committed to the highest standards of regulatory compliance with Bank Secrecy Act/Anti-Money Laundering requirements and expectations in each of the jurisdictions in which we operate,” BMO vice-president Paul Deegan said in an emailed statement.In recent years, U.S. authorities have increased efforts to prevent criminals and terrorists from using the banking system for illicit activities. Among other things, it requires banks within its jurisdiction to comply with the Bank Secrecy Act’s anti-money laundering requirements.The 11-page agreement says BMO Financial Corp., the U.S. subsidiary that technically owns BMO Harris Bank, “lacked effective systems of governance and internal controls to adequately oversee the activities of Bank of Montreal’s U.S. Operations with respect to legal, compliance, and reputational risks related to compliance with BSA/AML requirements.”Under the deal, the bank has agreed to provide funding for personnel and other resources to operate a system that “fully addresses the organization’s compliance risks on a timely and effective basis.”With files from Bloomberg read more

Poll Should a second free preschool year be included the next budget

first_img I’m not sure (1204) No (1827) Yes (704) THE ADDITION OF a second free pre-school year has been ruled out by Minister for Children Frances Fitzgerald, in an interview with the Sunday Business Post yesterday.Fitzgerald said that it was now important to focus on staff qualifications and on a more robust inspection process before this would happen.However Early Childhood Ireland  has expressed concern about what it called a “knee jerk reaction” as it said many centres are ready to meet the high standard criteria for a second free year.Questions have been raised about exploitation of the free pre-school year scheme following the RTÉ Prime Time programme on creches and the next budget will be another tight one but advocates of the second free year say it would be a big help for parents and children.We want to know what you think: Should a second free pre-school year be included in the next budget?center_img YesNoI’m not sureVote Poll Results:last_img read more

Android  300 millions de terminaux dans le monde

first_imgAndroid : 300 millions de terminaux dans le mondeEn marge du Mobile World Congress, dont le coup d’envoi a été donné lundi à Barcelone, le co-fondateur d’Android Andy Rubin, s’est félicité du succès sans cesse grandissant de l’OS mobile de Google. Chaque jour, ce sont 850.000 nouveaux terminaux Android qui sont activés, s’est-il félicité. Aujourd’hui, quelque 300 millions d’unités seraient équipés de l’OS à travers le monde. Tandis que pour certains experts, Android devrait équiper la moitié des smartphones vendus en 2012, Andy Rubin, le co-fondateur de l’OS mobile de Google, a dévoilé des chiffres impressionnants. Lors d’une table ronde organisée en marge du MWC, et rapportée par les Echos, il a annoncé que 850.000 nouveaux terminaux Android étaient chaque jour activés. Fin 2011, 700.000 smartphones et tablettes Android l’étaient quotidiennement.  Ce sont ainsi quelque 300 millions terminaux embraquant l’OS de Google qui sont aujourd’hui recensés à travers le monde. Une croissance qui se répercute naturellement sur la boutique d’applications dédiées au système d’exploitation mobile. Elle compte à ce jour 450.000 titres – soit trois fois plus que l’année dernière à la même période – et plus d’un milliard de téléchargements chaque mois.Des chiffres vertigineux pour Google, qui s’apprête à racheter Motorola Mobility. A ce sujet, Andy Rubin a tenu à confirmer qu’il n’y aurait pas de lien exclusif avec le constructeur. “Il y a une muraille entre eux et nous. Nous sommes une plateforme ouverte”, a-t-il souligné.

Des codes de commande de lISS ont été dérobés à la NASA

first_imgDes codes de commande de l’ISS ont été dérobés à la NASAUn ordinateur portable volé à la NASA l’an dernier contenait des codes de commande permettant de contrôler la Station spatiale internationale (ISS), a révélé l’inspecteur général de l’agence.La revue spécialisée PC Magazine a révélé une partie du rapport écrit remis au Congrès américain par l’inspecteur général de l’agence spatiale américaine, Paul Martin. Comme l’indiquaient hier les médias américains, un ordinateur subtilisé à la NASA en mars 2011, contenait les algorithmes de commande de l’ISS, le tout en données non-cryptées !À lire aussiBoisson, météorite et Facebook, les actus sciences que vous devez connaître ce 5 septembreSelon le rapport, ce vol faisait partie des “5.408 incidents de sécurité informatique survenus en 2010 et 2011”. Ces incidents ont abouti “à l’accès non autorisé aux systèmes informatiques de la NASA et à l’installation de logiciels malveillants sur ces systèmes”, a fait savoir M. Martin. D’autres portables volés durant la même période contenaient également des données relatives à Orion, le véhicule spatial habitable multifonctionnel (MPCV) actuellement en cours de construction en vue de futurs vols habités de la NASA. En tout, la NASA a signalé “la perte ou le vol de 48 appareils informatiques portables appartenant à l’Agence” entre avril 2009 et avril 2011.Le rapport signalerait en outre que ces incidents de sécurité ont entraîné plus de 7 millions de dollars de pertes. Pourtant, l’agence est dotée d’un budget informatique annuel de 1,5 milliard de dollars, dont environ 58 millions sont destinés à assurer la sécurité de ses systèmes informatiques. Mais la NASA reste à la traîne en ce qui concerne l’encryptage de certaines données vulnérables, indique PC Magazine. En effet, les organismes fédéraux cryptent à peu près 54% de leurs ordinateurs portables et autres appareils mobiles en moyenne. Jusqu’au 1er février dernier, la NASA n’avait cependant crypté que 1% de ses systèmes mobiles.Le 2 mars 2012 à 13:23 • Maxime Lambertlast_img read more

Homebuilders hammered over debt

first_imgWhen the Bank of Clark County failed almost two years ago, many of its borrowers feared the worst — that their loans would be sold to outside investors and targeted for immediate collection. For at least three of Vancouver’s prominent developers, that scenario has become reality.The Federal Deposit Insurance Corp. and its private partner last month filed lawsuits in Clark County Superior Court against developers Corey Harris, Sam Vilhauer and Ian McFatridge after they couldn’t pay off their commercial real estate loans originally held by BOCC. The land behind these loans is now worth far less than the FDIC and its partner, Multibank 2009-1 RES-ADC Venture LLC, could make by foreclosing and then selling the property. So they’ve sued, seeking $6.9 million in remaining debt that they are legally entitled to as the new owners of the loans.These two lawsuits — one against Harris, the other against Vilhauer and McFatridge — represent a more aggressive approach than the FDIC has taken with other loans from failed banks, including some that Harris was involved in. Vancouver bankruptcy attorney Doug Whitlock has seen a dramatic increase in similar lawsuits by debtholders. It’s a tactic that often doesn’t justify the cost, because of the high cost of litigation and the low recovery rate, he said.last_img read more

first_imgPrivate Equity firm Blackstone Group announced Monday it would buy Hewlett-Packard Enterprise’s stake in Indian firm Mphasis for $1.1 billion (about Rs. 7,285 crore). This is believed to be the largest IT deal for US-based Blackstone in India.Texas-based HP Enterprise (HPE) owns 60.5 percent stake in Mphasis, and Blackstone has agreed to pay Rs 430 per share to HPE, the Economic Times reports. Companies such as Tech Mahindra and Apollo had been bidding for the Mphasis buyout over the past few months.As per Securities and Exchanges Board of India (SEBI) norms, Blackstone will also have to make an open offer for an additional 26 percent stake in Mphasis, Reuters reports. Depending on the responses to the offer letter, the value of the deal is expected to be between $825 million and $1.1 billion.HPE is reportedly one of the biggest sources of revenue for the Indian IT firm, although its revenue has been declining over the last few quarters.In response to the open offer filed Monday by Mphasis, its stock declined almost 3 percent and was trading at Rs 455 at about 1 p.m. on the BSE.HPE and Blackstone have reportedly agreed to the terms of the Master Services Agreement, which would be signed with Mphasis, after it gets approval by Mphasis’ board of directors and shareholders, Press Trust of India reports.”We see large potential going forward driven by Mphasis’s world-class delivery capabilities and its access to Blackstone’s portfolio of companies across the globe, [sic]” Amit Dixit, senior managing director and co-head of private equity in India at Blackstone, was quoted as saying by PTI.The sale is reportedly expected to be completed in the next few months and is subject to conditions and approvals.[1 lakh = 100,000 | 1 crore = 10 million | 100 crore = 1 billion]last_img read more

The Ultimate Super Smash Bros Character Guide Falco

first_imgWho Are They?Falco Lombardi is 1. An incredible name and 2. A member of Nintendo’s sci-fi animal gang Star Fox. This literal bird is the hotshot pilot of the team, the type of guy who gets into heated arguments with leader Fox McCloud and always threatens to quit, but also always comes back because beneath that fire is deep loyalty and respect for his friends. Classic Top Gun stuff, really.Smash HistoryFalco first appeared as a secret character in Super Smash Bros. Melee. And as a clone of Fox, of one of the best characters in the game, Falco was also extremely good. In some respects he was better, especially with his fast aerial spike. As he appeared in later games he received new changes, like blue colors for his slower, stronger lasers and the ability to kick his reflector. However, for the most part Falco has unfortunately become weaker than Fox over time.What Looks New in Ultimate?Falco doesn’t have any new moves in Ultimate aside from a revamped Arwing Final Smash similar to Fox. And his aesthetics haven’t really changed either aside from some Star Fox Zero touches. The updates are more technical, adjustments to lag and damage output. But Falco is a very technical characters so seemingly small changes could have big impact.Our Hopes?If you want to play a Star Fox character that feels significantly different from Fox, be grateful that Wolf is back in Super Smash Bros. Ultimate. But if you just want to mix it up a little bit, try Falco. Our biggest hope is that their similar moves once again make them similarly competitive.Super Smash Bros. Ultimate releases Dec. 7 for Nintendo Switch. Until we can play more for ourselves, changes we talk about here are mostly speculation.

WHO Study Finds No Evidence Of Health Concerns

first_img by NPR News Scott Neuman 8.22.19 2:57am The World Health Organization says there’s not enough evidence to conclude that microplastics — which exist everywhere in the environment and show up in drinking water — pose any risk to human health, but it cautions that more research is needed to draw firm conclusions.In a new study, the WHO says that microplastics are “ubiquitous” with surface run-off and wastewater the largest sources of fresh-water contamination.However, despite widespread concern, “There is currently no evidence to suggest a human health risk from microplastics associated with biofilms in drinking-water,” the study concludes, referring to microorganisms that attach to microplastics.Instead, WHO suggests that diseases associated with untreated or poorly treated drinking water should remain a more urgent priority for public health officials. The risk posed by microplastics “is considered far lower than the well-established risk posed by the high concentration and diversity of pathogens in human and livestock waste in drinking-water sources,” the study says.Even so, WHO’s director of public health, Dr. Maria Neira, acknowledges that the conclusions reached in the report are based on incomplete information.”We urgently need to know more about the health impact of microplastics because they are everywhere — including in our drinking-water,” she says in a statement. “Based on limited information we have, microplastics in drinking water don’t appear to pose a health risk at current levels. But we need to find out more. We also need to stop the rise in plastic pollution worldwide.”Although there is no exact scientific definition of microplastics, they are formed when man-made plastics break down into tiny particles that measure less than 5 millimeters — about the size of the letters on a computer keyboard. Those plastics have gotten into oceans, rivers, lakes and streams and are consumed by humans and other animals.”But just because we’re ingesting them doesn’t mean we have a risk to human health,” says Bruce Gordon, WHO’s coordinator of water, sanitation and hygiene, according to The Associated Press. “The main conclusion is, I think, if you are a consumer drinking bottled water or tap water, you shouldn’t necessarily be concerned.”The report is WHO’s first to cover potential health risks associated with microplastics. The organization recommends more studies of microplastics, developing new ways to remove them from drinking water and the establishment of standard methods for measuring microplastics in water.Copyright 2019 NPR.

Fine dining on the hot seat

first_imgAs the season changes, we need to change our eating patterns and modify our day-to-day routines.Another aspect of our diet that needs to be addressed with the change of season is the freshness of food. Fresh food is light and easily digestible, which is very important, because in summers our digestive capacity reduces as compared to winter. FOODS TO EATSummer is all about fluids and having light meals. Drink lots of fluid -such as water, nimbu pani, buttermilk, lassi, fruit juices and Margarita as you need to keep yourself hydrated. Juices are good but eating the fruit by itself is more beneficial. In case of juices, take freshly squeezed juices without sugar. Try a combination of fruit and veg in your juice like  watermelons, chilled apple, pear, pomegranates, carrot, oranges. Cold soups are also another treat usually reserved for the summer months. Melon and mango soup or cucumber and yogurt soup are the two popular soups of this season. Savory ice creams are  excellent for salads and cold soups. For example – Parmesan or blue cheese ice cream, ceaser dressing ice cream or Gazpacho ice cream are all in trend. Burnt mango is also one of the best coolants and can be utilised in all courses like burnt mango dressing or burnt mango sorbet. Also Read – ‘Playing Jojo was emotionally exhausting’SUMMER COOLERSSorbets are frozen fruit juices that are a much healthier option as compared to ice cream and is coming into trend. Lime chili margarita or frozen mango margaritas are quiet popular this season.Usually three to four meals pattern is best during summer. The easiest snacks during the summers are fruits and vegetables. Make a fruit salad with mango, apple, melons, watermelons etc. Fruits and veggies are packed with powerful nutrients and they help keep you hydrated when the weather heats up. Common Ingredient for this summer are- watermelon, melon, pineapple, mango, beet-root, fruit Palm, bell fruit, lychee, papaya, apricot, plums, peaches, figs, broccoli, cauliflower, cucumber, pumpkin, eggplant, french beans, onions, summer squash, tomatoes, zucchini, olive oil, lemon, tamarind, yogurt and coconut. Also Read – Leslie doing new comedy special with NetflixFOOD NOT TO EATFood which is low in calorific value are excellent in summers. Do not rely on aerated drinks for fluid requirements. Avoid spicy, heavy, fatty/greasy, chips, sodas, pickles, tea, coffee etc. Try to keep your meals light and do not eat too many times a day. Heavy desserts made of khoya, butter, ghee etc should be avoided. The variety of grain should also become lighter, so switch to easier-to-digest grains such as rice, sattu and barley. The requirements of your palate should also keep pace with the change of season.CHILLED TOMATO GAZPACHOIngredientsCucumber (deseeded and skinned) 250 gmsTomato (deseeded) 250 gmsRed pepper (desseded) 150 gmsJalapenos 25Mayonnaise 200White bread 30Salt and pepper 5Almond ice creamCooking cream 160 gmsParmesan cheese 15 gmsEgg yolk nos 1Almond powder 35 gmsChopped almonds 75 gmsFor GarnishBlack olive dust 2 gmsExtra virgin olive oil  2mlMethodBlend all the ingredients together and sieve it through strainer; store it in refrigerator.

Five Cheap Effective Security Tips

first_img While a lot of security technologies come with impressive price tags, there are some fairly inexpensive things you can do to make your enterprise more secure.We picked the brains of a handful of security experts and got their ideas for the five cheapest security changes that would have the most impact. We skipped the obvious choices, like creating more complicated passwords and not leaving the door to the building or the server room open. The experts gave us suggestions that ranged from using digital signatures on all sent email, to what to not allow into the system, and what might be hidden in the office.”There are things you can do to secure your network without it taking a hit on your budget,” said Brian Dykstra a senior partner with Maryland-based Jones, Rose, Dykstra & Associates, a computer security and training company. “One of the biggest mistakes people make is to think they can’t afford to make any changes so they bury their heads in the sand. That almost always leads to a bad situation.”Here are five suggestions:Periodically check for rogue wireless access points in corporate buildings.The problem here is that some companies don’t have wireless access or they have restricted access, and some users will think they can sneak their own wireless access points in to make their lives a little easier. Maybe they want wireless from a conference room or from their desk. They set it up without IT’s knowledge, or guidance, and they often leave it unsecured.That means a hacker who is targeting the company now has an open door into the network. “There’s always rogue access,” said Dykstra. “It’s under the desk, or stuck behind a desk drawer. In any kind of large environment you go into, you’ll find a couple of them. The IT managers will always say, ‘Oh no, no. Not us.’ And then you find the Lynksis access setup.”Enable Windows Update on all computers.However, be sure to remember to verify that the systems actually are actually being patched, said Ken van Wyk, principal consultant with KRvW Associates.It’s an easy step that will ensure that systems are patched as soon as possible, but Dykstra said it’s “stunningly amazing” how many companies don’t take advantage of it. “Whenever I’m teaching, people stop me and ask what they should do on their own computer to improve their security,” he added. “I tell them to enable Windows Update. Let it automatically accept all [the patches] all the time. Your average non-IT person isn’t going to make a smart choice about what patches they need.”Another thing to keep in mind, though, is that not every computer will accept the patch update. Some glitch is going to shut down the update process before it’s done and if the IT manager doesn’t verify that it’s gone through, an unpatched computer could put the whole network at risk.”Sometimes you’ll go back and find out that there’s a machine that always denies a patch,” said Dykstra. “And here you thought you didn’t have to think about this process, but this machine was actually never being updated. That’s fairly common in a big environment.”Don’t allow html e-mail through.E-mail that uses html to enrich the images, the background, or the text opens the door for security problems, according to Rohyt Belani, managing partner with Intrepidus Group, a security consulting company.Phishers are relying more and more on html e-mails, which also are known as e-mail with active content. Belani explained that html enables spammers or hackers to disguise their attacks by allowing them to mask the URL address to which the hyperlink points. The link may read www.yourbank.com, but it actually might point to a Russian hacking site. That helps the hacker con unsuspecting people into clicking on the link, which most likely will take them to a malicious site where their machine is infected with malware.”You would not know this unless you viewed the source of the html e-mail, which non-IT-savvy won’t know to do,” said Belani, who noted that it’s a simple step to block html e-mail at the gateway, just like many companies do with executable attachments.Belani also said few companies need html e-mails. “E-mail may not look as pretty,” he said jokingly. “It enriches the text, but also hackers’ abilities.”Training, whether for users or the IT staff, will pay off in the long run.Most of the security experts contacted recommended training. Yes, there’s a cost involved but they either said there are ways to make it less expensive, like doing it in-house, or that in the long run the investment will more than pay for itself.”That’s my number one thing,” said Dykstra. “No matter what you do, there’s nothing cheaper than training up your personnel. You could even do it in-house if you have somebody who is willing to put this together. If I train somebody in what to be prepared for, or how to prepare for an incident that’s going to happen, that one effort will have a long-term payoff. If I buy some box and put it on my network, I’m not sure I’m going to get the same level of continuous payoff. Making people smarter is always a smart move.”Dykstra also said that he would focus on giving his IT staff security training before he would move on to the users. He noted that many techies aren’t given any, or enough, security training in college and it’s often cheaper to train them because it’s a smaller group than the company’s mass of users.”If they have a few classes on patch management, or security incident response, or how to secure users then you have this smart IT base and they’re going to make better decisions,” he added. “They need this kind of training.”Consider using Mozilla Foundation’s Thunderbird and Firefox as possible alternatives to Outlook and Internet Explorer.Since Microsoft’s applications heavily dominate the market, they’re the main target for hackers and virus writers. It’s not an issue of bugs. Mozilla’s Firefox actually had nearly twice as many reported vulnerabilities as Internet Explorer in a recent six-month span, according to Symantec’s Internet Security Threat Report. The issue is that hackers simply are targeting Microsoft’s software and basically leaving Firefox and Thunderbird alone.”Attackers are writing their malware to market share,” said Ken van Wyk, principal consultant with KRvW Associates. “That is, they’re targeting the big guys the most — IE and Outlook. Switching to anything else will improve your security, not because those things are more secure, but because those other products aren’t what the attackers are going after, by and large.”Keep in mind, though, that if enough people were to take van Wyk’s advice, everything would change. “Of course,” he added, “if the world changes to Firefox and Thunderbird, the attackers will go there, as well.”- Sharon Gaudin, InformationWeek(c) 2000-2007 CMP Media LLC.

We do not expect the boycott to last all year, but if the boycott lasts a whole week or 15 days and we have managed to sit down and negotiate with the state government, the affectation will be only during this period,” explained Sergio González Rubiera, president of la Asociación Mexicana de Agencias de Viajes en Cancún. Cancun, Q.R. — The Mexican Association of Travel Agencies says they will stop selling tours to Chichén Itzá beginning next week after an unannounced 110 percent rate increase to enter the site. On Friday, the Yucatán government announced that tickets purchased by tour operators before January 31 to enter Chichén Itzá will cost 242 peso, the same price as last year, and may be used during the first four months of 2019. The boycott was announced in response to the dissatisfaction generated by the wholesalers of Quintana Roo. González Rubiera explained that the boycott is to create a working table with the Yucatán government to modify the tariffs for tour operators, calling the increase non-exponential.

The images are seen immediately by an on-call neurologist back at the hospital who can then communicate directly with the ambulance crew and advise on how to begin treatment. The concept behind the MSU is to reduce the time to treatment, a critical factor in patient survival.Watch the VIDEO: Creating and Operating a Mobile Stroke UnitSee a 360 Degree View Inside a Mobile Stroke Unit Ambulance at Northwestern MedicineThe ITN team also spent time in the hospital’s Radiology and Breast Imaging departments. In the Breast Imaging department, ITN Associate Editor Jeff Zagoudis spoke with breast radiologist Karen Hou, M.D., about the hospital’s use of new technology and innovative practices in breast imaging and risk assessment.Watch the VIDEO: Breast Imaging and Risk Assessment at Northwestern Medicine Central DuPageRead the blog “Increased Awareness Teamed With Advanced Technology Saves Lives”See a 360 View of an Aquilion One 320-slice CT at Northwestern Medicine Central DuPage HospitalITN editors Jeff Zagoudis and Dave Fornell were active on social media during the visit, reaching 90,000 unique Facebook users with the content the week of the visit. For the first time, the team made use of a 360 degree camera to capture new views of various imaging rooms and equipment across the hospital.“It is not enough to just cover an industry based on press releases and conferences, you need to visit sites in the field. In healthcare, this means visiting hospitals. In 2018, ITN created a new strategy on how it covers site visits, maximizing the time spent at the facility shooting images for use with web content, filming several videos, electronic and print articles, use of a 360 degree camera for imaging system installations and social media posts during the visit. This strategy has been part of ITN’s efforts to expand on its multimedia cross-platform industry coverage. The team has worked hard to implement this new structure, and I am very proud of the editorial team for its successful execution,” said ITN Editorial Director Melinda Taschetta-Millane.ITN was also recognized with multiple 2019 Regional Azbee Awards in the Upper Midwest Region, including: Silver — Online Single Topic Coverage by a Team: Proton Therapy Related Content Demand for ultrasound scans at U.S. outpatient centers could grow by double digits over the next five years, according to a speaker at AHRA 2019.

Ionic Framework 40 has just been released now backed by Web Components

first_imgIonic Framework today released Ionic Framework 4.0. The release is a complete rebuild of the popular JavaScript framework for developing mobile and desktop apps. Although Ionic has, up until now, Ionic was built using Angular components, this new version has instead been built using Web Components. This is significant, as it changes the whole ball game for the project. It means Ionic Framework is now an app development framework that can be used alongside any front end frameworks, not just Angular. The shift away from Angular makes a lot of sense for the project. It now has the chance to grow adoption beyond the estimated five million developers around the world already using the framework. While in the past Ionic could only be used by Angular developers, it now opens up new options for development teams – so, rather than exacerbating a talent gap in many organizations, it could instead help ease it. However, although it looks like Ionic is taking a significant step away from Angular, it’s important to note that, at the moment, Ionic Framework 4.0 is only out on general availability for Angular – it’s still only in Alpha for Vue.js and React. Ionic Framework 4.0 and open web standards Although the move to Web Components is the stand-out change in Ionic Framework 4.0, it’s also worth noting that the release has been developed in accordance with open web standards. This has been done, according to the team, to help organizations develop Design Systems (something the Ionic team wrote about just a few days ago) – essentially, using a set of guidelines and components that can be reused across multiple platforms and products to maintain consistency across various user experience touch points. Why did the team make the changes to Ionic Framework 4.0 that they did? According to Max Lynch, Ionic Framework co-founder and CEO, the changes present in Ionic Framework 4.0 should help organizations achieve brand consistency quickly, and to give development teams the option of using Ionic with their JavaScript framework of choice. Lynch explains: “When we look at what’s happening in the world of front-end development, we see two major industry shifts… First, there’s a recognition that the proliferation of proprietary components has slowed down development and created design inconsistencies that hurt users and brands alike. More and more enterprises are recognizing the need to adopt a design system: a single design spec, or library of reusable components, that can be shared across a team or company. Second, with the constantly evolving development ecosystem, we recognized the need to make Ionic compatible with whatever framework developers wanted to use—now and in the future. Rebuilding our Framework on Web Components was a way to address both of these challenges and future-proof our technology in a truly unique way.” What does Ionic Framework 4.0 tell us about the future of web and app development? Ionic Framework 4.0 is a really interesting release as it tells us a lot about where web and app development is today. It confirms to us, for example, that Angular’s popularity is waning. It also suggests that Web Components are going to be the building blocks of the web for years to come – regardless of how frameworks evolve. As Lynch writes in a blog post introducing Ionic Framework 4.0, “in our minds, it was clear Web Components would be the way UI libraries, like Ionic, would be distributed in the future. So, we took a big bet and started porting all 100 of our components over.” Ionic Framework 4.0 also suggests that Progressive Web Apps are here to stay too. Lynch writes in the blog post linked to above that “for Ionic to reach performance standards set by Google, new approaches for asynchronous loading and delivery were needed.” To do this, he explains, the team “spent a year building out a web component pipeline using Stencil to generate Ionic’s components, ensuring they were tightly packed, lazy loaded, and delivered in smart collections consisting of components you’re actually using.” The time taken to ensure that the framework could meet those standards – essentially, that it could support high performance PWAs – underscores that this will be one of the key use cases for Ionic in the years to come.last_img read more

Troubling statistics Nearly a quarter of Costa Ricans live in poverty

first_imgPoverty and extreme poverty have climbed to four-year highs in Costa Rica, according to the National Statistics and Census Institute (INEC).On Thursday, INEC released the results of the 2014 National Household Survey, revealing that 318,810 households live in poverty, up 32,727 from the same period in 2013. The 1.7 percent increase in the poverty rate was accompanied by a 6.7 percent increase in the number of families living in extreme poverty, which totaled 94,810. In 2010, 21.2 percent of Ticos were poor, according to INEC.The survey showed a significant gap between rates of poverty in urban and rural areas. More than 19 percent of homes in urban areas fell below the poverty line compared to 30.3 percent in rural areas. Costa Rica’s cities saw an extreme poverty rate of 5.2 percent compared to 10.6 percent in the countryside. Rural poverty also grew at a faster rate than in urban centers.The Central region, which includes San José, had the lowest poverty rate at 17.2 percent. The Brunca region in Costa Rica’s southwest had the most poor households at 36.2 percent. The Chorotega region, which encompasses much of the Guanacaste province, showed the highest levels of extreme poverty, reaching 12.1 percent.The average monthly household income in 2014 dropped 0.4 percent to ₡1,008,482, or just over $1,800. But a more accurate figure would subtract 4.6 percent from that due to lost purchasing power caused by inflation.INEC suggested that unemployment was the greatest marker of poverty, noting that there were four times as many unemployed poor Costa Ricans as unemployed not-poor Tico: 23.9 percent compared to 5.7 percent. A large majority of the poor who do work — 72.3 percent — are employed in the informal sector.While household income fell, so did Costa Rica’s estimated GINI score, which measures income inequality. The estimated GINI score for 2014 is 0.516 compared to 0.522 in 2013, suggesting that the concentration of wealth slightly decreased to levels closer to those in 2011 and 2012.In August, President Luis Guillermo Solís announced a new partnership with Oxford University in the United Kingdom that he hoped would improve Costa Rica’s stagnant poverty rate. Costa Rica will begin using the multi-dimensional poverty index (MPI), developed by the English university, in the hope of more effectively leveraging the country’s social assistance programs to tackle extreme poverty.https://infogr.am/costa-rican-poverty-by-region Facebook Comments Related posts:More than 1.1 million Costa Ricans live in poverty Costa Rica poverty hits young people the hardest, says new survey Costa Rica unveils partnership with Oxford University to tackle persistent poverty Costa Rica is 20 percent more expensive than other Latin American countrieslast_img read more
