Annan says insecurity prevents return of large UN team to Iraq

Speaking to reporters upon returning to work at UN Headquarters in New York, Mr. Annan said the deteriorating situation and violence in Iraq have made the work of the UN team on the ground difficult.”For the foreseeable future, insecurity is going to be a major constraint for us and so I cannot say right now that I’m going to be sending in a large UN team,” he said. “Obviously, we are monitoring the situation very closely and we are doing the best we can and I will have a better sense when Mr. Brahimi is back and we reassess the situation.”The Secretary-General added that governments are also aware that “it is in our collective interest to do everything we can to bring the violence down in Iraq,” and that he hoped the situation could calm down before the transfer of power planned for 30 June.Asked if that deadline was still credible, Mr. Annan said it would be difficult for it to be changed. “It has been embraced by the Iraqis themselves, who are anxious to see the end of occupation as soon as possible,” he said.”That having been said, I hope we are going to be able to bring down the violence and control the situation between now and then because the kind of violence we are seeing on the ground is not conducive for that sort of political process and transition,” he said.Meanwhile, Mr. Brahimi and his team met with the Iraqi Cabinet of Ministers today – the tenth day of his current visit – to review with them his observations on the political process and the country’s transition to sovereignty.Finally, Mr. Brahimi met with Dr. Mahmoud Othman, a leading Kurdish member of the Governing Council, and a group of 21 people representing all walks of life in Iraq, from professionals, doctors, women and journalists to non-governmental organizations (NGOs), university professors and tribal leaders.

Andrew Wiggins And The Problem With Scorers

Minnesota Timberwolves swingman Andrew Wiggins was named the NBA’s 2014-15 Rookie of the Year on Thursday. The announcement came as no surprise: It’s an award he’s essentially been a lock to win since at least February.But there’s a big disconnect between what the eye test (plus basic statistics such as points per game) and the analytics say about Wiggins, both in terms of his current production and his future potential. And because of that discrepancy, Wiggins is emblematic of what’s long been one of the most difficult problems to solve in basketball analysis.According to conventional analysis, Wiggins had a standout rookie campaign. Despite being a callow 19-year-old, he averaged nearly 17 points per game for the season, including 19.1 PPG from New Year’s Day onward, and provided some of the most sharable Vines of any player in the league. On top of his scoring output, he’s also regarded by scouts as a player with elite defensive potential because of his length and athleticism. Viewed in those terms, Wiggins’s Rookie of the Year nod could be seen as a launchpad for a Hall of Fame career.The advanced statistics are far less impressive. As others have noted, according to Value Over Replacement Player (VORP) Wiggins had one of the worst seasons by a Rookie of the Year winner since 1973-74, which is as far back as the statistic can be calculated. Also judging by VORP, 60 other rookies provided more value to their teams this season. And even after a high-scoring spike in performance at midseason, Wiggins’s final 2014-15 Statistical Plus-Minus (SPM) of -2.4 was barely better than the -2.9 mark that could have been expected by simply regressing his stats to the mean back in December.ESPN’s single-season Real Plus-Minus (RPM) for Wiggins’s offense was higher than his SPM, suggesting he makes an impact at that end that can’t be fully detected by the box score. But in his supposed strong suit — defense — RPM ranked Wiggins in the 14th percentile of all NBA players in terms of per-possession performance, even after adjusting for the quality of his teammates (or lack thereof) and the opponents he faced. And Synergy Sports judged his capabilities as an individual defender only marginally better, ranking him in the 32nd percentile of defenders according to its video-scouting metrics.So what gives? Why are the eyes so high on Wiggins, but the numbers so down?Part of it is age. If we give a bonus to Wiggins’s SPM according to an aging curve, setting every Rookie of the Year winner on equal footing at age 22,1The average age of all NBA rookies since the 1976-77 season. Wiggins shoots up the list of winners, from No. 40 (out of 41) in rookie wins above replacement (WAR) to No. 27. Kyrie Irving201219-9.64.68.3+3.8 Chuck Person198722-2.75.05.00.0 Chris Paul200620-8.513.216.4+3.2 There was also the matter of Wiggins’s awful teammates. According to SPM,2Specifically, a calculation estimating how poor the team’s efficiency differential would be if we removed the player from the roster and gave his minutes to a replacement-level player. Wiggins was saddled with the ninth-worst teammates of any Rookie of the Year winner since the ABA-NBA merger. Teammate Zach LaVine posted the worst WAR of any player in the league, Anthony Bennett ranked 17th-worst, and Adreian Payne was sixth-worst in the league based on his time in Minnesota alone, despite not joining the team until February. Simply put, Wiggins had to carry more of the Timberwolves’ load because he played with a truly terrible supporting cast.But that doesn’t explain all of the disparity between Wiggins’s conventional accolades and his feeble advanced metrics. After all, the quality of a player’s teammates is barely correlated3Since the merger, there’s only a correlation of 0.098 between a player’s “teammate rating” and his own SPM; there’s also a correlation of 0.117 between the year-to-year change in a player’s teammate quality and the change in his (age-adjusted) SPM. with his own performance. A bigger reason might relate to a question APBRmetricians have grappled with for years: How exactly should we deal with high-volume scorers?Former ESPN Director of Production Analytics (and current Sacramento Kings Director of Analytics and Player Personnel) Dean Oliver devoted an entire chapter (titled The Problem With Scorers) in his seminal book “Basketball on Paper” to the issues involved in statistically evaluating players who perform what seems the most essential of on-court acts: putting the ball in the basket. Although he determined that per-possession efficiency was the best measure of a team’s offensive prowess and developed equivalent efficiency metrics for individual players, Oliver also posited that a player’s offensive efficiency was prone to changes based on how much of a scoring workload he took on.That theory, which has largely been borne out by subsequent studies, implies that a player’s efficiency numbers aren’t even close to being all his own — and that, crucially, high scorers such as Wiggins represent the group most centrally affected by such interplay between teammates. Furthermore, raw scoring ability may suggest heightened potential even after controlling for a player’s actual rookie production. If you run a regression attempting to predict a rookie’s remaining career WAR from his first-year statistics, the second-most important predictor (though dwarfed by the effect of his age-adjusted rookie WAR itself) is usage rate, a measure of how frequently a player was called on for scoring attempts within his team’s offense, regardless of their success.The idea that Wiggins’s scoring and athleticism speak volumes about his potential in a way that can’t be captured by his rookie-season value metrics goes a long way toward explaining the gulf between his subjective reputation and the numbers. Only time will tell which is right, but that differential could position Wiggins as his generation’s Allen Iverson or Antoine Walker — players who served as early battlegrounds in the war between analytics and conventional wisdom.

Opinion When the Beatles played Dublin in 1963 John Lennon declared Were

first_img Monday 18 Mar 2019, 7:00 AM Its seafaring internationalism made Liverpool open to exotic, non-English ideas. As a port of world status, it had the confidence to ‘choose’ its own nation-state. It wasn’t only England.Although young John was not a Scouse in the true sense of the word, he readily threw himself into a world of poverty, shebeens, and communities of sharp-tongued, hard-faced, generous, quick-witted and quick-tempered people.A world that was sensitive to injustice, was rowdy and was rock ‘n roll. The world of docklands Liverpool- this was the life that John wanted.By the time The Beatles achieved fame the City and Port were past their peak which was not lost on John. He said:It was going poor, a very poor city, and tough. But people have a sense of humour because they are in so much pain, so they are always cracking jokes. Opinion: When the Beatles played Dublin in 1963 John Lennon declared: ‘We’re all Irish’ Lennon’s search for rebellion was nurtured by his embrace of Liverpool’s Irish influence and the dynamic effect of the city’s seafarer culture via the movement of ideas across oceans, writes Francis Kenny. Mar 18th 2019, 7:01 AM Share106 Tweet Email2 Francis Kenny https://jrnl.ie/4537160 20 Comments Tweet thisShare on FacebookEmail this articlecenter_img “THE MAGIC THING about Liverpool is that it isn’t in England,” said Margaret Simey author and politician. So perhaps it is unsurprising then, that when The Beatles played Dublin in 1963 John Lennon declared on behalf of the whole band: “We’re all Irish”. In the years that followed Lennon would record ‘The Luck of the Irish’ and ‘Sunday Bloody Sunday’, while Paul McCartney sang: ‘Give Ireland back to the Irish’.The Liverpool-Irish influence on John and the other Beatles is best understood once you realise that in the middle of the 19th century there were more Irish-born people living in Liverpool than in Limerick or Derry.Liverpool had the fourth highest population of Irish born people of any city in the world, coming only after Dublin, Cork and Belfast. The steady expansion of the city and its Irish contingent meant that by the 1890s, Liverpool had become the largest Roman Catholic diocese in England with over 400,000 Catholic citizens, one-fifth of the total Catholic population of Britain.And in testament to the strength of faith within the city, previous to the outbreak of the Second World War, three Catholic parishes in the city offered confession as Gaeilge. So why wasn’t the Irish influence on this global phenomenon that was The Beatles ever recognised?An important element of the biography, The Making of John Lennon, is examining the effect that that Irish working-class culture had on the formation of The Beatles.In 1964, at their first press conference in the US, The Beatles bewildered the American media with their irreverence and offbeat sense of humour; all of which had their roots in the Liverpool/Irishness of Scouse culture.As Journalist Paul Morley observed: “Liverpool is always on guard”.“They know that the English look up and over with suspicion and doubt, stumped by the language, needled by the snappy, mongrel confidence, outmanoeuvred by the fast logic-shredding wit.”Liverpool has always had a deep-seated historical Celtic connection– the city sits with its back to mainland Britain, looking out instead to the Atlantic Ocean; so much so that the Mersey was viewed as an inland river of the Irish Sea.This combined with its sense of otherness and the outlook of defiance that existed in Liverpool’s inner-city population’s irreverence to status, radical and verbal gymnastics, fitted John like a glove.His search for rebellion was nurtured by his embrace of Liverpool’s Irish influence and the dynamic effect of the city’s seafarer culture via the movement of ideas across oceans.Said Lennon:  We came from Liverpool and reflected our past The whole notion of being an outcast, in a city full of outcasts, located in a last refuge seaport, appealed to John.  Francis Kenny is the author of The Making of John Lennon, which is out now published by Indiana University Press. The Making of John Lennon examines the all-encompassing Irishness of Liverpool’s influence on Lennon and his traumatic childhood as well as the genius of the The Beatles and their bitter and prolonged breakup. They are very witty, and it’s an Irish place. It is where the Irish came when they ran out of potatoes.  By Francis Kenny Short URL 34,134 Views last_img read more

Obésité démences et taille du cerveau seraient liées

first_imgObésité, démences et taille du cerveau seraient liéesÉtats-Unis – Selon une étude de l’université de Boston publiée dans les Annals of Neurology, l’obésité et un volume cérébral faible seraient liés. Les chercheurs ont mesuré l’IMC (indice de masse corporelle), le tour de taille, le ratio taille/tour de hanche, le volume de graisse abdominale ainsi que celui du cerveau et la densité de la substance blanche cérébrale de 733 personnes de 60 ans d’âge médian, dont 70% de femmes.Ils en ont conclu que plus l’IMC d’une personne est élevé, plus son volume cérébral est faible chez les plus âgés mais également que les personnes possédant une surcharge graisseuse, plus particulièrement au niveau des viscères, étaient plus susceptibles de contracter la maladie d’Alzheimer, ou d’autres formes de démence.

Lufthansa replaces RollsRoyce A380 engine

first_imgLufthansa has replaced the Rolls Royce engine in one of its A380s after inspections found a problem with it. Lufthansa spokesperson Thomas Jachnow said the problem detected earlier this week was minor and was not related to the oil leak issues that grounded the A380s in the Qantas and Singapore Airlines fleet, The Sydney Morning Herald reported. Mr Jachnow said the aircraft was returned to Rolls-Royce immediately after the fault was found and the aircraft has since returned to service. The German airline is the latest airline to find fault in its A380s following the explosion of a Rolls-Royce engine on a Qantas A380 from Singapore to Sydney earlier this month. Despite a safe landing, Qantas has since grounded its entire A380 fleet while it investigates the cause behind the explosion.Singapore Airlines has also grounded three of its A380s this week, to carry out “precautionary engine checks”.

Why a New Credit Scoring System Will Open Mortgage Opportunities for FirstTime

first_img Share Credit Score Competition Act of 2015 Credit Scores FICO First-Time Buyers mortgage Trulia 2016-02-15 Staff Writer February 15, 2016 580 Views Fannie Mae and Freddie Mac only consider the FICO credit scoring model when making mortgage purchase decisions, but some believe that this singular method of scoring is locking potential buyers out of the housing market and cutting into lenders’ businesses.A bill introduced in December 2015 is trying to change this singular model and move toward a more multifaceted model. The H.R. 4211 bill, also titled the “Credit Score Competition Act of 2015,” was introduced by U.S. Rep. Ed Royce (R-California) and U.S. Rep. Terri Sewell (D-Alabama)—both members of the House Financial Services Committee—to the House of Representatives.”The bill could positively impact millions of Americans who cannot currently secure mortgages or are forced to pick from less than stellar options simply because the system in place today doesn’t truly measure how financially responsible they are.” -Trulia Both Reps. Royce and Sewell announced on their websites that the bill would allow Fannie Mae and Freddie Mac to consider alternative credit-scoring models instead of just the FICO model. This  would open up homebuying options for many consumers whose credit does not meet the current standards.“The GSEs’ use of a single credit score is an unfair practice that stifles competition and innovation in credit scoring. Breaking up the credit score monopoly at Fannie and Freddie will also assist them in managing their credit risk and decreases the potential for another taxpayer bailout,” Rep. Royce said.A recent report from Trulia showed that the use of alternate credit scoring models would help buyers obtain a mortgage that normally would have missed out on. Fannie Mae and Freddie Mac own about 90 percent of the secondary mortgage market, so there is no room for competition in the credit-scoring industry, which Trulia says is hindering innovation.”The model currently used to score borrowers is based on data from nearly 20 years ago and excludes millions of people that companies like Experian say are creditworthy but whose scores don’t reflect that under the system in place today,” Trulia said. “The current credit-scoring model also effectively punishes borrowers who don’t have much of a credit history; a short or nonexistent credit history can drag down overall scores. With this system, if you’re financially responsible, a diligent saver, and debt-free, you could still miss out on a mortgage because you don’t utilize credit in your day-to-day life (some people do prefer to use cash!).”The FICO credit scoring system does not take into account that not everyone has access to traditional forms of credit that boost FICO scores, Trulia reported.”The bill could positively impact millions of Americans who cannot currently secure mortgages or are forced to pick from less than stellar options simply because the system in place today doesn’t truly measure how financially responsible they are,” Trulia concluded.Click here to view the full Trulia report.center_img in Daily Dose, Headlines, News, Origination Why a New Credit Scoring System Will Open Mortgage Opportunities for First-Time Buyerslast_img read more

first_img June 14, 2019 2,116 Views The Decline of Single-Family Permits in Daily Dose, Data, Featured, News 2019 Housing Market National Association of Home Builders single family permits 2019-06-14 Mike Albanesecenter_img Share The total number of single-family housing permits issued through April 2019 reached 261,119 nationwide, which is a 6.5% year-over-year decline, according to the National Association of Home Builders (NAHB).A total of 279,302 single-family permits were issued last year through April 2018. The only region of the nation to see growth through April 2019 was the Northeast, which grew 1.9% year-over-year increase in single-family permits.The biggest drop was the 12% decline in permits in the western region, which also had the only reported decrease in the nation for multi-family permits.The Midwest saw an 11.3% decrease in single-family permits and the South saw single-family permits decline by 3.8%.Between April 2018 and April 2019, the District of Columbia saw the highest growth in single-family permits at 111.1%, and just 10 states recorded increases. Connecticut posted a 39.1% increase in single-family housing permits. Montana’s 28.3% decline was the worst in the nation. The 10 states with the highest number of single-family permits accounted for 62.122% of total single-family permits issued.This report comes shortly after the NAHB revealed that single-family construction growth has been slowing, especially in smaller cities. The NAHB used small cities, which make up 37% of all single-family construction nationwide and 30% of the U.S. population, as a “demographic and economic microcosm” of the United States.According to the NAHB, small metropolitan areas, or cities with less than one million in population, reported weak growth in single-family construction.Large metro areas, with populations of more than one million, on the other hand, are posting greater rates of expansion at the start of 2019. According to the NAHB, exurbs—outlying counties of large metro areas with at least 1 million residents—were the only region that registered single-family permit growth on a year-over-year basis in Q1 2019.While containing just 9% of single-family construction nationally, exurbs were the only region to show permit growth when comparing Q1 2019 data to Q1 2018 data, with a 1.6% increase.last_img read more
