Speaking at the launch of the State of the Global Climate report by the World Meteorological Organization (WMO), Mr. Guterres reiterated his call for action, underlining that the alarming conclusion that climate change is accelerating, “proves what we have been saying: climate change is moving faster than our efforts to address it.”This was why he had convened the Climate Action Summit due to take place on 23 September, he said, sitting alongside the President of the General Assembly and the head of WMO, briefing correspondents in New York. UN Photo/Manuel EliasHigh-level meeting on Climate and Sustainable Development for AllPresident of the General Assembly, Maria Fernanda Espinosa, said she had pledged throughout her time in office there was a need for “a holistic understanding of the socio-economic consequences of increasingly intense extreme weather on countries around the world”, adding that the report “makes an important contribution to our combined international action to focus attention on this very critical problem.”It was “really not good news” she told journalists, that CO2 emissions had jumped from 1.6 per cent in 2017, to passing the 2.7 per cent emissions growth, during 2018.“We need to act, and to act now. The numbers and data are extremely worrisome…We are capable, we have the science, we have the knowledge, we have the tools in hand” to push back on global warming, she added.   WMO said that the temperature rise last year, came despite the agreement by the international community in December 2015 in Paris, to curb carbon dioxide and other greenhouse gas emissions, and to limit global temperature rise to well below 2C.Paris Agreement increasingly under threat – WMO chief“The time remaining to achieve commitments under the Paris Agreement is quickly running out,” said WMO Secretary-General, Petteri Taalas.Outlining the report’s key findings, Professor Taalas warned of record greenhouse gas concentrations last year, that drove global temperatures towards increasingly dangerous levels.According to WMO, carbon dioxide levels were at 357 parts per million (ppm) in 1994, rising to 405.5 ppm in 2017.Professor Taalas also described “striking” evidence of record warming from 2015 to 2018, increasing sea-level rise and the loss of sea ice in both northern and southern polar regions.Idai victims ‘personify why we need to limit climate change’Noting that extreme weather events have continued into 2019 – most recently with Tropical Cyclone Idai, which caused devastating floods and loss of life in Mozambique, Zimbabwe and Malawi – Professor Taalas said that its victims “personify why we need the global agenda on sustainable development, climate change adaptation and disaster risk reduction”.“We are seeing record rises in land and ocean temperatures, sea levels and greenhouse gas concentrations,” Mr. Guterres told journalists. “Second, we are seeing, more and more, the dramatic impact of extreme weather conditions. Last year saw 14 weather events where the devastation cost more than $1 billion…The average number of people exposed to heatwaves has increased by some 125 million since the beginning of the century, with deadly consequences.” I want the summit to demonstrate the benefits of climate action and how everyone can benefit”, he said. “A growing number of governments, cities and businesses…already understand that climate solutions can strengthen our economies, improve air quality and public health and protect our environment.”This will involve a commitment to enhancing national pledges contained in the Paris Agreement by 2020, Mr. Guterres explained, and countries “showing how we can reduce greenhouse gas emissions by 45 per cent over the next decade and get to net zero emissions globally by 2050”.Assessing the potential benefits of sustainably-driven climate solutions that leave no-one behind, the UN Secretary-General welcomed the “growing number of governments, cities and businesses” that had embraced Agenda 2030-inspired climate solutions as a way to “strengthen our economies, improve air quality and public health and protect our environment”.Initiatives could come from a range of areas, “such as energy, sustainable agriculture, forests and oceans and resilience to climate impacts”, Mr. Guterres said, maintaining that renewable technologies “are already delivering energy at a lower cost than the fossil-fuel driven economy”.Despite this progress, much more radical steps must be taken, he insisted, explaining that “this means ending subsidies for fossil fuels and high-emitting, unsustainable agriculture, and shifting towards renewable energy, electric vehicles and climate-smart practices”.In addition, “it means carbon pricing that reflects the true cost of emissions, from climate risk to the health hazards of air pollution”, the UN chief explained, “and it means accelerating the closure of coal plants, halting plans for new ones, and replacing those jobs with healthier alternatives, so the transformation is just, inclusive and profitable.” UN Photo/Manuel EliasHigh-level meeting on Climate and Sustainable Development for All‘Don’t come with a speech, come with a plan’Mr. Guterres called on Heads of State to attend his climate action summit in New York on 23 September, and achieve positive change. “Don’t come with a speech, come with a plan,” he said, adding: “This is what science says is needed. It is what young people around the globe are rightfully demanding.”.@WMO’s new #StateofClimate report shows record highs in global temperatures, sea levels and greenhouse gas concentrations.

The extent of ice in the Arctic and Antarctica is yet again well below average, it said.From now until May, WMO also forecasts above-average sea surface temperatures, which are expected to lead to above-normal land temperature, particularly in tropical latitudes.General Assembly meets on climate change and sustainable developmentEarlier on Thursday, the General Assembly held a High-Level meeting on climate change and sustainable development, including panel discussions on synergies between the two, and how the two agendas can be brought together in terms of concrete action.”We all can reduce our carbon footprint everyday: in terms of the food we consume, the clothes we use, the transport we choose and the garbage we generate”, said Ms. Espinosa.“Clearly we need to modify our consumption patterns. This is not just a world of shortages, but also of over-consumption. A great paradox is that 1,300 million tons of food are wasted every year, while almost 2000 million people suffer from hunger or malnutrition”, she told delegates at UN Headquarters. read more


OSU defensive ends junior Jalyn Holmes (11), redshirt junior Tyquan Lewis (59) and freshman Nick Bosa (97) celebrate after a play in the second half of the Buckeyes game against the Badgers on Oct. 15. The Buckeyes won 30-23 in overtime. Credit: Alexa Mavrogianis | Photo EditorOhio State redshirt freshman Nick Bosa, redshirt sophomore Sam Hubbard, junior Jalyn Holmes and redshirt junior Tyquan Lewis were all on the field for the final play of OSU’s 30-23 overtime victory at No. 8 Wisconsin. The four defensive ends collectively known as the Rushmen looked at each other and decided, as a unit, the game was on them.At the snap of the ball, Lewis, Holmes and Bosa bull-rushed Wisconsin redshirt freshman quarterback Alex Hornibrook and sacked him to end the game before he had a second to get rid of the ball. Lewis was credited with the sack.Hubbard said the message from defensive line coach Larry Johnson has been very clear. The Rushmen mantra is “R2X,” meaning rush to the “X,” with “X” being the quarterback. Johnson even has the three-letter adage in his Twitter handle.“You can see on that last play all four of us were at the ‘X’ like we’re supposed to be. That’s what we do,” Hubbard said on Monday.Long before overtime was in the realm of possibility, the Buckeyes found themselves down 16-6 at half and had allowed 313 yards in the first half, including 170 on the ground, on defense. Both surpassed OSU’s average per game. Coach Urban Meyer came into the locker room and said he was looking to tear into his players. However, the score could have been much worse. The Rushmen kept the score tight early in the game, with multiple third-down stops earlier in the game for OSU.On the first drive of the game, Bosa sacked Hornibrook to halt the drive at the OSU 21-yard line and forced a field goal. In the second quarter, after a 28-yard run by Wisconsin redshirt junior Jazz Peavy that put the Badgers at midfield, Hubbard sacked Hornibrook to end the drive. Then, right before the half, when the Badgers had first-and-goal from the five yard line, the Rushmen got into the backfield, forcing errant throws from Hornibrook and stopped the Wisconsin offense from leading by more than just 16-6 at halftime.“It’s a party to the quarterback,” Holmes said. “It’s a race, whoever gets there first. We just celebrate when we get there. We just get to show our talent and speed. We can play anywhere on that defensive line.”The Rushmen are a large reason as to why OSU ranks first in the country in red zone defense at 62.5 percent. When the OSU defense can suppress chunk plays and get its opponent to third or fourth down, the four men across from the ball often deliver to get redshirt junior quarterback J.T. Barrett and the offense back on the field.Holmes said coach Johnson deserves much of the credit for the success of the unit. He said the sky is the limit for the group.“We pride ourselves on not letting them score so we just put it all out there and we play together as a unit,” Holmes said.Meyer said during Monday’s media availability that attitude isn’t adjusted by any speech any of the coaches make, whether it be at halftime, before or during a game. He said that the units on the team build that trust in the offseason, and no group trusts one another more than the Rushmen.“The best I’ve heard is when Larry Johnson and his guys get together. That’s a brotherhood. That’s why they play hard now,” he said. “That’s not something that’s said at halftime. It’s something that’s been in progress really since you walk foot on campus.”Holmes, Lewis and Hubbard have spent at least three years in the program, but Bosa has been the player that has been a catalyst for the Rushmen. Only a year removed from surgery to repair an anterior cruciate ligament, Bosa has been moving along slowly under the regimen of Johnson to ensure no further injury. The freshman from Fort Lauderdale, Florida, has primarily been on the field for pass-rushing purposes, giving the interior defensive linemen the chance to stop the run and Bosa the opportunity to stay fresh; something that paid off in the end for he and the Buckeyes.“Coach J told us that it was going to have to be a heart win,” Bosa said after the game. “That’s what he preached all week and we pulled it from our heart and came through.”Each of the four Rushmen registered a sack against Wisconsin, marking a team-high four sacks in a game this season for the Silver Bullets. Making it more impressive, each sack came at a time of need for OSU. The Rushmen have been a notably dominant force all season, but when the lights were the brightest, they stole the show.“As we have more success, the brotherhood is going to be stronger and stronger … This does nothing but help us,” co-defensive coordinator Luke Fickell said after the game. “I don’t know if there’s a guy out there that thought they played their best game they could’ve, but they know they fought together, climbed together and it makes them realize they need one another.” read more


first_imgInterest in Myanmar’s significant mining potential is growing fast. There are plenty of ‘first mover’ opportunities and this great potential will be discussed at the International Mining Myanmar conference in Yangon, October 30-31 https://im-mining.com/international-mining-myanmar-conference/ Delegate places are just $300, contact Myanmar@im-mining.com. One of the latest announcements from this highly prospective region relates to the major north-south trending gold belt in central Myanmar. Centurion Minerals has completed a reconnaissance (Phase 1) exploration program on the “Slate Belt” concession located in central Myanmar and continues to compile historical geological and exploration information. The company has identified six priority exploration targets that will be the focus of a Phase 2 exploration program.Centurion is currently evaluating two mineral exploration concessions located in this gold belt. The Slate Belt Concession is located approximately 125 km south of Mandalay and covers an area of some 700 km2. The Bani Concession (also referred to as the Kin Ywar Concession) is located about 40 km north of Mandalay and covers an area of approximately 1,000 km2. Both properties are road accessible and exploration activities can be completed year-round.Active mining operations are located immediately south and east of the Slate Belt concession boundaries. The Modi Taung mine, a mesothermal lode gold deposit discovered by Ivanhoe Myanmar Holding in 2000, is located approximately 20 km south of the concession and is hosted by Mergui Group mudstone. Gold/copper/antimony skarn type mineralisation occurs in the Lebyin district located some 4 km east of the concession. Vein type gold mineralization is hosted by Mogok Metamorphic rocks in a number of locations north of the Slate Belt Concession including the Shante gold mining district.A number of gold prospects and one active gold mine are located in the vicinity of the Bani Concession. The Paung Taung Gold Mine, described as a stratabound lode gold deposit, is located approximately 7.5 km south of the concession. Similarly sedimentary rocks hosting gold-bearing quartz vein mineralization occur at the Yegi and Kin Ywar prospects located about 1.6 km south and 3 km west, respectively, of the concession. The succession of sedimentary rocks hosting the Payaung Taung Gold Mine has been mapped to continue onto the concession. The concession area is subject to seasonal placer mining operations and previous work by the DGSE confirms the presence of gold bearing stream sediments. Recent evaluation of the local and regional drainage completed by the company suggests that the sedimentary rocks underlying the concession represent a potential source for the placer gold.Based on the geological and structural setting of the Slate Belt Concession, as well as adjacent mining operations, exploration targets within the Slate Belt Concession include: 1) sedimentary hosted mesothermal lode gold deposits, 2) intrusion related gold, copper, (+/- antimony) deposits, and 3) quartz veins and disseminated gold deposits hosted by metamorphic rocks. Highlights of the recently completed Phase 1 field work in the Slate belt Concession as well as on-going data acquisition and compilations include:The Upper Nankwe prospect area consists of laminated and ribbon textured veins similar to those at the Modi Taung gold mine. Quartz veins with pyrite, chalcopyrite, and chalcocite are exposed in historical trenches at Upper Nankwe. Modi Taung style gold mineralization hosted by Mergui Group mudstone is currently being mined by Myanmar mining companies, and by independent operators, approximately 2 km south of the southern concession borderThe Mindale prospect similarly consists of a previously mapped laminated quartz vein similar to those at Modi TaungThe Kyauk prospect has been reported to have alteration characteristics similar to those recognized at the Lebyin gold/copper/antimony district and was mined for copper during WWIIThe Paungdaw prospect area is reported to contain quartz veins with textures similar to those at Modi Taung and containing native gold, pyrite, and chalcopyriteThe Tagundaing Chaung prospect has reported copper values of .07%, .08%, .09%, and 1.98% from samples of float consisting of quartz tourmaline breccia. During the Phase 1 field work, the area of tourmaline bearing breccias and quartz veins in float was expanded from that previously reported and a 0.6m wide quartz vein with fine grained pyrite exposed in a historical trench was traced by the company for 35 mThe Monbinzon Chaung target area is defined by a cluster of anomalous stream sediment samples ranging from 20 to 95 ppb gold occurring over an area of approximately 300 m x 400 m. Small scale alluvial gold mining is wide spread in the area. Altered granodiorite and metasedimentary rocks of the Mogok Metamorphic Belt hosting pyrite bearing and pyrite + galena bearing quartz veins have recently been mapped in this target area by the company.The company is planning Phase 2 exploration activities to commence upon the conclusion of the rainy season and will include advanced exploration in selected target areas within the Slate Belt as well as continued early stage concession-wide exploration and assessment in both the Slate Belt and Bani Concessions.David Tafel, President and CEO of Centurion comments, “The results of the initial field work as well as the recently compiled historical exploration data clearly support our original exploration concepts of exploring for sediment hosted lode gold deposits and intrusion related gold-copper deposits within the Slate Belt Concession. The activities concluded to date will be utilized to focus more advanced exploration efforts, particularly in the southern section of the concession.”last_img read more

first_img Boris Johnson must quit the cabinet over the governments decision to give a third runway at Heathrow Airport the go-ahead, a co-leader of the Green Party has demanded.Jonathan Bartley told IBTimes UK the foreign secretary and former Mayor of London should make the move despite Number 10s promise to allow ministers to express personal views for a limited time over the decision.A free vote isnt enough, he will still be muzzled and he would still not be able to campaign against Heathrow expansion, Bartley said.Hes nailed his colours to the mast – he said he would campaign against it and the only way to do that is to resign.Richmond Park MP Zac Goldsmith is expected to go one step further and quit the House of Commons over the decision.The environmentalist will reportedly tender his resignation to the Richmond Park Tories today.Goldsmith, who was first elected to parliament in 2010, told IBTimes UK last week: Heathrow has always been the default position of successive governments because the company used to be a monopoly with total access to government, and many of those relationships continue today.But in addition to the noise, cost and pollution, a green light for Heathrow would mean more years of dithering and delay, and for that reason there is still a strong chance it will be rejected.The dramatic move would trigger a by-election for the London seat. The former Mayor of London hopeful currently holds a majority of more than 23,000 over the Liberal Democrats.But Goldsmith could split the Tory vote if he ran as an independent candidate.[The by-election] is clearly going to be a national issue around airport expansion, the whole country is going to be focused on it, Bartley said.There needs to be a party there which says very, very clearly: no Heathrow expansion, but not Gatwick expansion either.We need to be taking our climate change commitments very, very seriously.The Richmond Park vote would follow the Witney and West Oxfordshire by-election, which saw the Conservative majority slashed from more than 25,000 to just over 5,700.The government, meanwhile, is expected to launch a public consultation on a third runway at Heathrow ahead of a parliamentary vote in the winter of 2017/18.The SNP backs a third runway at Heathrow, while Jeremy Corbyn is expected to give Labour MPs a free vote on the issue.Labours Mayor of London Sadiq Khan is opposed to the move as well as the Liberal Democrats.Read more: Boris bulldozer-blocker Johnsons changing language on Heathrow Airport expansion IBTimes VideoRelated VideosMore videos Play VideoPlayMute0:00/0:00Loaded: 0%0:00Progress: 0%Stream TypeLIVE0:00?Playback Rate1xChaptersChaptersDescriptionsdescriptions off, selectedSubtitlessubtitles settings, opens subtitles settings dialogsubtitles off, selectedAudio TrackFullscreenThis is a modal window.The media could not be loaded, either because the server or network failed or because the format is not supported.Beginning of dialog window.

first_img In order to carry out its various functions, the nucleus in every cell must be able to receive certain molecules and send others to other parts of the cell, but because other unnecessary or dangerous molecules can make their way into the cell, a means of protecting the nucleus has evolved—a double membrane which serves as a barrier. That barrier has on average, 2000 pores in it, each of which serve as a gatekeeper, either allowing a molecule through, or barring its entry. Though the job is very important, because it serves as a means of stopping viral or bacterial attacks, its structure has not been very well understood, until now. In these two new efforts, both teams have managed to create maps of the different layers that make up the rings of the pores, offering other medical researchers a new way perhaps, to combat diseases that manage to make it through the NPC.The team at Caltech has been working on the problem for 10 years, using electron cryotomography to study each part of each ring, successively adding more and more to a growing map. The end result describes all of the interconnections and interactions of all of the proteins in each pore, which is itself part of a larger system. The second team took the opposite approach, using mass spectrometry, cryo-electron microscopy and finally computer modeling to create a realistic rendering of an actual pore.As both teams note, now that the structure of the NPC has finally been mapped, the next step will be to learn more about how all the pieces work together to control the flow of molecules in and out of the nuclear envelope and perhaps to devise a means for providing assistance when the NPC fails. Biochemists solve the structure of cell’s DNA gatekeeper Citation: Nuclear pore complex successfully mapped and diagramed (2016, April 15) retrieved 18 August 2019 from https://phys.org/news/2016-04-nuclear-pore-complex-successfully-diagramed.html (Phys.org)—Two teams of researchers taking different approaches have successfully mapped and diagramed the nuclear pore complex (NPC)—protein complexes that make up the pores in the nuclear envelope that allow or prevent passage of molecules into the nucleus. One team from the California Institute of Technology took a bottom-up approach to discovering the makeup of the pore rings, while a team with members from several institutions in the U.S. and Germany took a top-down approach. Both have published their results in the journal Science. More information: D. H. Lin et al. Architecture of the symmetric core of the nuclear pore, Science (2016). DOI: 10.1126/science.aaf1015AbstractThe nuclear pore complex (NPC) controls the transport of macromolecules between the nucleus and cytoplasm, but its molecular architecture has thus far remained poorly defined. We biochemically reconstituted NPC core protomers and elucidated the underlying protein-protein interaction network. Flexible linker sequences, rather than interactions between the structured core scaffold nucleoporins, mediate the assembly of the inner ring complex and its attachment to the NPC coat. X-ray crystallographic analysis of these scaffold nucleoporins revealed the molecular details of their interactions with the flexible linker sequences and enabled construction of full-length atomic structures. By docking these structures into the cryoelectron tomographic reconstruction of the intact human NPC and validating their placement with our nucleoporin interactome, we built a composite structure of the NPC symmetric core that contains ~320,000 residues and accounts for ~56 megadaltons of the NPC’s structured mass. Our approach provides a paradigm for the structure determination of similarly complex macromolecular assemblies. J. Kosinski et al. Molecular architecture of the inner ring scaffold of the human nuclear pore complex, Science (2016). DOI: 10.1126/science.aaf0643 AbstractNuclear pore complexes (NPCs) are 110-megadalton assemblies that mediate nucleocytoplasmic transport. NPCs are built from multiple copies of ~30 different nucleoporins, and understanding how these nucleoporins assemble into the NPC scaffold imposes a formidable challenge. Recently, it has been shown how the Y complex, a prominent NPC module, forms the outer rings of the nuclear pore. However, the organization of the inner ring has remained unknown until now. We used molecular modeling combined with cross-linking mass spectrometry and cryo-electron tomography to obtain a composite structure of the inner ring. This architectural map explains the vast majority of the electron density of the scaffold. We conclude that despite obvious differences in morphology and composition, the higher-order structure of the inner and outer rings is unexpectedly similar.

first_img Related Content December 22, 2015 — The American College of Radiology (ACR) applauded the U.S. House of Representatives for including access to imaging care protections for the most sick and injured Medicare beneficiaries and women seeking mammograms in the House-passed Consolidated Appropriations Act.“The ACR, its member physicians, patients and others have worked with Congress to improve and safeguard patient access to vital imaging care through the protections in this bill. The access to care that these steps will allow can literally mean the difference between life and death for many Americans. We urge the Senate to pass the bill and the President to sign it into law with all haste,” said Bibb Allen, Jr., M.D., FACR, chair of the American College of Radiology Board of Chancellors.Thanks to a movement spearheaded by the ACR, the bill includes an 80 percent roll-back (from 25 percent to 5 percent) of a Multiple Procedure Payment Reduction (MPPR) to Medicare reimbursement for interpretation of advanced imaging scans performed on the same patient in the same session, on the same day. In recent years, the Centers for Medicare & Medicaid Services (CMS) applied a 25 percent MPPR to the professional component of these services. Beginning Jan. 1, 2017, the bill caps any reduction at 5 percent. This is more in line with peer-reviewed research that shows that any efficiencies gained in that scenario are variable and, at most, a fraction of what CMS contends, but has never produced documentation to support. In fact, the ACR said that CMS consistently ignored a statutory mandate in the Protecting Access to Medicare Act of 2014 requiring the agency to publicly disclose the data it used to justify what the association calls flawed funding cut.“This MPPR rollback eases the impact on access to needed imaging care for auto accident and stroke victims, those with widespread cancer, and others who often require interpretations by different doctors to recover. Physicians and lawmakers worked together to ensure adequately-covered access to this lifesaving care. Patients and providers will benefit from this, once the bill is passed by the Senate and signed into law and implemented by CMS,” said Geraldine McGinty, M.D., MBA, chair of the American College of Radiology Economics Commission.ACR-backed Protecting Access to Lifesaving Screenings Act (PALS Act) language included in the bill will continue mandatory mammography insurance coverage for millions of women nationwide. The PALS Act provision delays implementation of U.S. Preventive Services Task Force (USPSTF) draft breast cancer screening recommendations for two years.The Affordable Care Act (ACA) requires private insurers to cover exams or procedures given a grade of “B” or higher by the USPSTF. The Task Force gave routine screening of women ages 40–49 a grade of “C” and gave a “B” grade only to biennial (every other year) screening for women 50–74. This would indicate that women ages 40–49 who choose routine screening and those 50–74 who want to be screened annually would not be guaranteed coverage if these draft recommendations were implemented. This would particularly impact women in underserved and rural areas.“The protections in this legislation allow women ages 40-and-over who choose to get an annual screening mammogram to be covered, with no copay, for these lifesaving exams. The bill also allows time for breast cancer experts to properly vet the USPSTF recommendations and the process by which they were created as well as more recent literature on mammography screening. This will help ensure sensible screening policy that saves the most lives and minimizes any viable screening concerns” said Debra Monticciolo, M.D., FACR, chair of the American College of Radiology Breast Imaging Commission.For more information: www.acr.org FacebookTwitterLinkedInPrint分享 Video Player is loading.Cynthia McCollough explains new advances in CT technologyPlay VideoPlayMuteCurrent Time 0:00/Duration 13:56Loaded: 1.17%Stream Type LIVESeek to live, currently playing liveLIVERemaining Time -13:56 Playback Rate1xChaptersChaptersDescriptionsdescriptions off, selectedCaptionscaptions settings, opens captions settings dialogcaptions off, selectedAudio Trackdefault, selectedFullscreenThis is a modal window.Beginning of dialog window.

first_img June 14, 2017 820 Views in Daily Dose, Featured, Government, Headlines, News FOMC Interest rates Janet Yellen Mortgage Interest Rates the fed 2017-06-14 Joey Pizzolato The Federal Open Market Committee voted Wednesday to raise interest rates for the second time this year to 1-1.25 percent, a move that was widely expected amongst economists and industry professionals and described as “prudent” by FOMC Board of Governors Chair Janet Yellen. Back in March, they voted to increase the rate a modest quarter of a point to maintain the Fed’s goal of maximum employment and market stability. The FOMC is of the opinion that waiting too long to scale back accommodations could potentially cause a rapid increase in rates, which could disrupt the market and send the economy into another recession. June’s rate increase reflects this continued belief, and follows Janet Yellen’s comments from March that, “we continue to expect that the ongoing strength of the economy will warrant gradual increases in the federal funds rate to achieve and maintain our objectives.” It is currently unclear how the hike in interest rates will affect mortgage rates. On Tuesday, Mark Fleming, Chief Economist at First American, stated he didn’t foresee mortgage interest climbing much—if at all—because rates are more closely tied to a 10-year Treasury bond, something that is not really affected by short term rate hikes made by the Fed. Conversely, Brad Walker, CEO of Income&, thinks it will have a short term effect on mortgage rates. “We expect to see an increase in mortgage rates in the short term, just as we did with the two previous increases. However, current housing demand and its effect on housing prices can diminish or exacerbate this rise in mortgage rates.”What is clear, according to Curt Long, Chief Economist of the National Association of Federally-Insured Credit Unions (NAFCU), is that the Fed’s choice to increase rates is a good sign for the future.“The actions taken by the Fed reflect confidence in the labor market and a perception that global risks have declined in the first six months of the year,” he said. “Nevertheless, the outlook for the second half is uncertain. Inflation has slowed recently and the debt ceiling debate poses political risk. But with the Fed stating its intentions to start reducing the size of the balance sheet this year, it is offering a clear vote of confidence for the economy.” In Wednesday’s press conference, and in the previously released addendum to the Policy Normalization Principles and Plans, Yellen confirmed that “changing the target range for the federal funds rate is its primary means of adjusting the stance of monetary policy.” As such, NAFCU is reporting that one more quarter-point rate hike is due in 2017, three in 2018, and three to four in 2019, although the FOMC made it very clear that they are constantly amending their stance as the economy changes, so nothing is set in stone. The FOMC is scheduled to meet again July 25-26. center_img FOMC Hikes Interest Rates; Will Mortgage Rates Follow? Sharelast_img read more
