first_imgzoomImage Courtesy: Pixabay under CC0 Creative Commons license Red Sea Gateway Terminal (RSGT), a subsidiary of Saudi Industrial Services Co. (SISCO), and Saudi Ports Authority (Mawani), have signed a memorandum of understanding (MOU) for further expansion of Jeddah Islamic Port (JIP) in Jeddah, Saudi Arabia. Under the MOU, which was signed on January 28, 2019, the parties intend to further develop northern part of JIP on a long-term basis, in addition to RSGT’s existing terminal.JIP is Saudi Arabia’s largest seaport, handling approximately 50% of the all containerized volume of the country. Specifically, RSGT will consolidate the container facilities in northern part of Jeddah Port and execute a comprehensive development plan upgrading and adding berth capacity while modernizing yard and all support facilities, including RSGT’s existing terminal.This is expected to create a world-class facility capable of serving the local market, while also catering for the growing regional transshipment trade, according to SISCO.With a capacity of 2.5 million TEUs, RSGT is the first container terminal in the country built by the private sector. It is the only terminal at JIP capable of fully accommodating ultra large container vessels (ULCVs) of 14,000+ TEUs.In 2018, RSGT volumes grew by more than 16% as compared to 2017.The duo will announce more details once the binding terms are agreed.last_img read more

Brian Gallant to announce plans to step down as New Brunswick Liberal

first_imgFREDERICTON — Former New Brunswick premier Brian Gallant will be stepping down as Liberal leader, and asking the party to organize a leadership convention.The Canadian Press has learned from sources close to Gallant that he intends to remain as Opposition leader until the party chooses a new head.An official announcement is expected Thursday.Gallant became leader in 2012, and premier in 2014 at the age of 32, but came up short in September’s provincial election.Gallant’s minority government was toppled two weeks ago in a confidence vote on the throne speech, and Progressive Conservative Premier Blaine Higgs and his minority government were sworn-in last week.On his last day in office, Gallant said if he was to quit as leader, he would remain as MLA for his riding of Shediac Bay-Dieppe.Donald Wright, a political scientist at the University of New Brunswick, says ideally the new Liberal leader will be someone from outside the party who can bring new ideas and new energy, and not be associated with the last four years.The Canadian Presslast_img read more

Pacific trade pact leaders due to meet on new deal

first_imgDANANG, Vietnam – Leaders of the countries participating in a Pacific Rim trade pact abandoned by President Donald Trump have agreed to meet and are expected to endorse a basic agreement on moving ahead without the U.S.Malaysian Prime Minister Najib Razak said Friday that he was “reasonably confident” the 11 countries remaining in the Trans-Pacific Partnership, which include Malaysia, would have a basic agreement.They are trying to find a way forward without the U.S., the biggest economy and before Trump took office one of its most assertive supporters. Trump has said he prefers country-to-country deals and is seeking to renegotiate several major trade agreements to, as he says, “put America First.”Najib’s comments to a business conference on the sidelines of the Asia-Pacific Economic Cooperation forum followed conflicting reports that a basic agreement had been reached in the wee hours Friday.Najib said officials met until 3 a.m. Friday trying to bridge their differences and produce a statement for the leaders of their countries to endorse.“I am quite sanguine we will get a deal but of course it has to go through a process of ratification and some side matters have to be worked out, but at least we have managed to salvage some kind of free trade agreement, which is important for the future of APEC,” Najib said.Vietnamese officials did not immediately respond to requests for comment.The negotiations are being held in Danang, Vietnam, alongside meetings of the 21-member APEC’s annual summit, where Trump’s markedly different stance from past U.S. leaders was being felt even before his arrival Friday in the coastal resort city.While most APEC members say they remain committed to their multi-country approach in weaving their economies ever closer together, many acknowledge that open trade is a mixed bag: Not everyone benefits equally.The U.S. pushback on “free trade,” evidenced in Trump’s “America First” policy, has raised eyebrows in the region after decades of U.S. pressure on opening markets.While APEC operates by consensus and customarily issues nonbinding statements, TPP commitments would eventually be ratified and enforced by its members.But even talks this week on a declaration to cap this week’s APEC summit had to be extended for an extra half-day as ministers haggled over wording. It’s unclear what the exact sticking points were, but officials have alluded to differences over the unequal impact more open trade has had on workers and concerns over automation in manufacturing that could leave many millions in a wide array of industries with no work to do.Vietnamese Trade Minister Tran Tuan Anh said a “new trend of protectionism” was afoot, but the group eventually managed to bridge their differences.As a developing country with a fast-growing export sector, Vietnam has a strong interest in open trade and access for its exports to consumers in the West. The summit is an occasion for its leaders to showcase the progress its economy has made thanks largely to foreign investment and trade. Danang, Vietnam’s third largest city, is in the midst of a construction boom as dozens of resorts and smaller hotels pop up along its scenic coastline.But even though its economy grew at a brisk 6.2 per cent pace last year, Vietnam’s GDP per capita is still one of the lowest among APEC members at less than $2,200. Many of its 95 million people remain poor and vulnerable to natural disasters such as storms that lashed the coast near Danang just days before the APEC meetings.APEC’s members are Australia, Brunei, Canada, Chile, China, Hong Kong, Indonesia, Japan, South Korea, Malaysia, Mexico, New Zealand, Papua New Guinea, Peru, Philippines, Russia, Singapore, Taiwan, Thailand, the U.S. and Vietnam.last_img read more

Candidate loses German election after film makers weigh in

BERLIN — A 51-year-old immigrant has been elected mayor of a town in eastern Germany after beating a candidate from the far-right Alternative for Germany party in a runoff that drew international attention.The dpa news agency reported that Octavian Ursu, a member of Chancellor Angela Merkel’s Christian Democratic Union party who came to Germany from Romania in 1990, received 55.1 per cent of the vote in Sunday’s election in Goerlitz.

UN urges restraint after rocket from Gaza hits Israeli city

There was reportedly damage but no injuries resulting from the rocket fire, which struck a residential area in the city of Ashkelon. “Indiscriminate rocket fire against civilians is completely unacceptable and constitutes a terrorist attack,” Robert Serry, UN Special Coordinator for the Middle East Peace Process, said in a statement. “We call on the de facto authorities in Gaza to ensure that these kinds of actions do not occur,” he added, referring to Hamas, which took power in the territory in 2007. Mr. Serry stressed that violent actions must not be allowed to undermine progress in the on-going talks between Israel and the Palestinians, and urged all parties to exercise restraint and abide by international law. At the end of 2008 Israel launched Operation Cast Lead with the stated aim of trying to halt repeated rocket attacks against it from Gaza. More than 1,400 people were killed and at least 5,000 others were injured during the three-week offensive. In a briefing to the Security Council last week, Under-Secretary-General for Political Affairs B. Lynn Pascoe reported that Palestinian militant groups had recently fired 41 rockets and mortars into southern Israel, causing no injuries. At the same time, the Israel Defense Forces (IDF) carried out six air-strikes and 21 incursions, killing four Gazans, including one alleged militant, and injuring 23 others, he added. Meanwhile, Secretary-General Ban Ki-moon met today with Israeli Defence Minister and Deputy Prime Minister Ehud Barak, with the two men discussing the situation in Gaza and in Lebanon.Mr. Ban stressed the need for Israel to continue its restraint on settlement activity and to extend that to East Jerusalem, “among other steps that could help efforts to proceed to meaningful direct talks between the parties,” according to information released by the Secretary-General’s office. 30 July 2010A senior United Nations official in the Middle East has condemned the firing of a rocket from the Gaza Strip into Israel earlier today and urged restraint by all parties in the wake of the attack. read more

American federal agency OKs gas pipeline project fought by residents

Opinion Buckeye defense set for another title run in 2015

OSU sophomore defensive lineman Joey Bosa (right) sacks Michigan redshirt-senior quarterback Devin Gardner during a Nov. 29 game at Ohio Stadium. OSU won, 42-28.Credit: Mark Batke / Photo editorIt’s been more than a month since the Ohio State football team won its eighth national championship, but it is never too early to look forward to the start of the 2015 season.The Buckeyes are set to return seven of 11 starters on defense, a crew that held all three Heisman finalists relatively in check over the last three games of the year.With the 2015 spring game just about two months away from kicking off, we look at what the “Silver Bullets” will be bringing to the table as they get set to defend their title.Defensive lineWhile the Buckeyes lose Steve Miller and Michael Bennett, OSU doesn’t seem to be taking too big of a step back in 2015 along the defensive front.Unanimous All-American junior Joey Bosa is set to return for what will likely be his final season in the scarlet and gray, and veteran senior Adolphus Washington will likely anchor the interior of the front four for OSU.The candidate most likely to replace Bennett, who is almost sure to be a first- or second-round NFL Draft selection, is senior Tommy Schutt.Schutt played in 12 games in 2014 and recorded 10 tackles.Redshirt-sophomore Michael Hill will also earn time as the Buckeyes rotate early and often on the defensive line, especially inside.Replacing the production lost by Miller and Rashad Frazier should not be an issue for the Buckeyes as highly touted youngsters step to the forefront.Sophomore Jalyn Holmes, who made an appearance in nine games including the title game against Oregon, is a leading candidate for the end spot while fellow redshirt-sophomore Tyquan Lewis will also see significant playing time.Left out of the mix will be 2015 recruit Jashon Cornell. Despite being a four-star recruit, he is buried behind a stable of talent that will be competing for playing time on a defense looking to repeat for a national title.Returning starters:   Joey Bosa, Adolphus WashingtonKey losses: Michael Bennett, Steve MillerOdd man out: Jashon CornellProjected starters: Bosa, Washington, Tommy Schutt, Jalyn HolmesLinebackersThe linebackers on the 2014 title winning defense more than exceeded expectations after a less-than-stellar 2013 season.Led by senior Joshua Perry, the Buckeyes are set to return two of three starters from the linebacker core and a third with plenty of experience.Redshirt-sophomore Darron Lee and sophomore Raekwon McMillan will likely round out a three-man group that is built to torture opponents’ backfields.McMillan — who will replace Curtis Grant — totaled 54 tackles in his freshman campaign, just 15 less than Grant, who started each game in 2014.Combined, the three returning players accounted for 259 tackles in 2014, and are poised to shatter that number in 2015.Should an unforeseen injury occur, incoming freshman Justin Hilliard, the top outside linebacker recruit in the country according to ESPN, could see some early reps.Hilliard is an Ohio native out of St. Xavier High School and a possible future star for the Buckeyes.Returning starters: Joshua Perry, Darron LeeKey loss: Curtis GrantOdd man out: Chris WorleyProjected starters: Perry, Lee, Raekwon McMillanDefensive backsIf you are looking for a position group to credit for winning the 2014 title (other than the quarterbacks), look no further than the OSU secondary. The Buckeyes improved to the 29th best pass defense in 2014 from the 112th ranked pass defense in 2013, and stifled offenses for the large part of the title run. From the back four, the Buckeyes are set to return three players in 2015, but the one player lost might be the most difficult to replace. Doran Grant played arguably the biggest role on the OSU defense other than Bosa in 2014, as he took on wide receivers like Tony Lippett from Michigan State and Heisman finalist Amari Cooper from Alabama and held each under 100 yards. With Doran Grant lost to graduation, it is likely redshirt-sophomore Eli Apple will slide over to the strongside corner spot while redshirt-junior Tyvis Powell and junior Vonn Bell will return to their respective safety spots. Leading candidates to take over the weakside corner position are likely redshirt-sophomore Gareon Conley and sophomore Damon Webb. Conley, who started in place of Apple during the Michigan State game, showed signs of weakness as he gave up two big plays to quarterback Connor Cook and company, forcing Apple to play injured. Webb, whom some expected to redshirt in 2014, did not do so and appeared in nine games as a freshman, collecting three tackles. Another candidate is sophomore Erick Smith, who appeared in 13 games as a freshman and totaled 13 tackles to go along with an interception against Kent State. Whoever replaces Doran Grant will have big shoes to fill, and will likely be tested early and often. Returning starters: Eli Apple, Vonn Bell, Tyvis PowellKey losses: Doran Grant, Armani Reeves (injury)Odd man out: Gareon ConleyProjected starters: Apple, Damon Webb, Bell, PowellThe Buckeye defense is set to test its changes against Virginia Tech on Sept. 7 in Blacksburg, Va. read more

The then-redshirt freshman amassed 45 touchdowns and 3,772 total yards and finishing fifth in the Heisman voting.After 50 starts across four years, Barrett finished his Ohio State career with more offensive yards (12,697), passing touchdowns (104) and total touchdowns (147) than any other player in Big Ten history.Along with the numerous records accomplished while at Ohio State, Barrett went 38-6 as a starter while completing over 60 percent of his passes in each of his four seasons.The three-time captain led the Buckeyes to a 24-7 Cotton Bowl victory over USC and this year’s No. 3 pick Sam Darnold in the last game of his OSU career.In his sophomore season, Barrett threw for 211 yards and ran for 96 in a 44-28 Fiesta Bowl win over Notre Dame. A year later, again in the Fiesta Bowl, Barrett threw for 127 yards and two interceptions in a 31-0 defeat to Clemson in the College Football Playoff.At the NFL combine, Barrett was the second fastest quarterback in the 40-yard dash at 4.70 seconds. On the other end, Barrett finished with the third slowest three cone drill times of all quarterbacks (7.38 seconds). read more

Feasibility study for new Demerara River Bridge completed

The Feasibility Study and Design for the new Demerara River Bridge has successfully been completed and a copy was, on Wednesday afternoon,  presented to Minister within the Ministry of Public Infrastructure, Annette Ferguson. The 57-page final report was presented by the project team, which includes Demerara Harbour Bridge Corporation General Manager and Project Manager, Mr. Rawlston Adams; Chief Transport and Planning Officer, Mr. Patrick Thompson; and Team Leader of the consulting company, LievenseCSO, Mr. Arie Mol.During the document’s handing over, a rundown on its main conclusions were highlighted. From the feasibility study it was determined that the proposed location of Houston-Versailles was the most ideal. It was further noted that the bridge should be a low-level one with a movable part and three-lanes. This structure, it said, provided the most socio-economic benefits for Guyana and led to the lowest urban environmental impact. Furthermore, it was recommended that the promotion of alternative transportation routes should be encouraged to lend to the longevity of the new bridge.According to the Department of Public Information, the completion of the feasibility study leads the way for the next stage, the pre-qualification of contractors for the construction of the bridge. This process has already begun and will conclude on October 17.Minister Annette Ferguson (third, right) receives the completed Feasibility Study and Design for the new Demerara River Bridge from Mr. Ariel Mol of Lievense CSO (second, right). With them are members of the project team: DHBC General Manager and Project Manager, Mr. Rawlston Adams (third, left); Chief Transport and Planning Officer at MPI, Mr. Patrick Thompson (second, left); Senior Engineer (Transport and Planning), Mr. Ronald Roberts (left); and Transport Planning Officer (Economist) Ms. Ramona Duncan (right)Meanwhile, both Mr. Adams of DHBC and Mr. Thompson of MPI noted the preparations that were undertaken during the feasibility stage to ensure the successful completion of key components.Minister Annette Ferguson and Mr. Ariel Mol of LievenseCSO following the handing over of the completed Feasibility Study and Design for the new Demerara River BridgeThompson noted that during the preparation of the feasibility study, all possible stakeholders, including those from the private and public sectors and neighbourhood and regional democratic councils, were consulted. In fact, Adams said the project team met with the Lands and Surveys Department on Wednesday for advice on surveying and the acquisition of land. The team also met with the Environmental Protection Agency on proceeding with the necessary environmental study.“All in all, we’re confident that once we work together and everyone puts their shoulder to the wheel, we can get this project moving along smoothly,” Mr. Adams said.Mr. Thompson added that challenges, such as land acquisition, will have to be faced but he stressed that the team is up to the challenge.Upon receipt of the report, Minister Ferguson thanked the team for its dedication to the project and extended special thanks to Mr. Mol for satisfactorily delivering the report.In response, Mr. Mol expressed his honour and gratitude for the support received from the Guyanese team and emphasised that his counterparts had enabled the entire team to work as one effective unit.

Georganas renews crossparty push on refugees

first_img Facebook Twitter: @NeosKosmos Instagram In his first week back in Canberra, Labor MP Steve Georganas is to establish a cross-party working group on Australia’s beleaguered asylum seeker policy in a bid to develop a more humane policy for refugees. Spurred by ‘the Nauru files’ – the publication by The Guardian of 2,000 leaked reports which reveal allegations of a massive scale of abuse of children in offshore detention – Georganas told Neos Kosmos last week that a new initiative was needed urgently to influence the debate.“We need to get away from the volatility of the politics on this issue, it’s about getting MPs together who may not be like-minded, but who can discuss the issue in a civilised manner,” he said.“Wars are going to continue, disasters are going to continue, refugees will always be around, and we have to deal with it in a more understanding way. It’s about what we can do as nations working together to fix the source of the problem and its effects.” Renowned for his strong views on the asylum seeker issue, sometimes at odds with his own party, Georganas regained the South Australian marginal seat of Hindmarsh at the recent federal election with a 2.5 per cent swing after losing it in the 2013 election.In 2012, with a group of concerned backbenchers including Independent Tony Windsor and Liberal Judi Moylan, Georganas launched a formal effort to intervene in the asylum debate, calling on both major parties to transform their policy positions.The working group came together during the parliamentary debate about the so-called “Malaysia solution” – an initiative of the Gillard government which proposed to send 800 asylum seekers who arrived in Australia by sea, to Malaysia, in exchange for 4,000 verified refugees. The proposal was sunk by the Coalition after it was declared illegal by the High Court. This month former prime minister Tony Abbott expressed regret about the Coalition’s decision not to back the proposal when in opposition, saying it would have been “an acknowledgement of the government-of-the-day’s mandate to do the best it could…to meet our nation’s challenges,” he said.With the benefit of hindsight Mr Abbott added: “It would have been a step back from the hyper-partisanship that now poisons our public life.”While Opposition leader Bill Shorten has pledged a “more humane and safer approach to asylum seekers”, Labor remains committed to three crucial planks of the Turnbull government’s policies: offshore processing, regional resettlement and boat turnbacks.One key point of difference between the parties is that Labor wants to abolish temporary protection visas which the Coalition says are vital to stopping the boats.Georganas is keen that Labor puts some further clear blue water between its position and the Coalition’s. “In terms of Labor’s policies, I’m not advocating we go back to where we were in 2007, but I am advocating we have a discussion, and bring people along with us, that can create change.”Vital to any humane approach says Georganas is to remove once and for all, the indefinite detention of asylum seekers.“We need a solution that involves all our regional partners and ensures we all do out fair share to uphold international law. We haven’t solved the refugee problem and we never will. We’re just going to have to deal with it,” he said. “We don’t want to return to a situation where people drown at sea, but we can’t detain people for indefinite periods. It’s insane. Even criminals who have committed murders aren’t detained indefinitely.”last_img read more

Lantheus’ LEU TechneLite generator is the first technetium-99m (Tc-99m) generator in the United States that contains molybdenum-99 (Mo-99) produced from at least 95 percent LEU. With greater access to LEU Mo-99 through its supply chain diversification strategy, Lantheus can now move closer to its goal of eventually eliminating Highly Enriched Uranium (HEU)-sourced Mo-99 from its supply chain. Lantheus’ first LEU TechneLite generator was shipped on Jan. 7, 2013.With the introduction of the LEU TechneLite generator, Lantheus fully supports the U.S. government’s global nuclear security strategy to encourage reliable supplies of medical radioisotopes produced from non-HEU sources. On Jan. 2, 2013, President Obama signed into law the American Medical Isotopes Production Act of 2011 (AMIPA) as part of the 2013 National Defense Authorization Act. The AMIPA encourages the domestic production of LEU Mo-99 and provides for the eventual prohibition of the export of HEU from the United States. In addition, the Centers for Medicare and Medicaid Services (CMS) recently stipulated in the 2013 final Medicare payment rules, for Medicare Hospital Outpatients, that CMS will provide incremental reimbursement for every Tc-99m diagnostic dose produced from non-HEU sourced Mo-99. Lantheus’ LEU TechneLite generator satisfies the new reimbursement requirements under the CMS 2013 rules.“We are pleased to be the first company to offer a Tc-99m generator produced using at least 95 percent LEU,” said Don Kiepert, president and chief executive officer of Lantheus Medical Imaging. “As leaders in nuclear medicine, an important component of our global sourcing strategy is to increase our use of LEU-sourced Mo-99 with a goal of 100 percent by 2016. Our TechneLite generator is used in many critical diagnostic imaging procedures, including scans of the heart, brain, bone, kidneys and some types of tumors. The introduction of our LEU TechneLite generator expands our nuclear medicine product portfolio and meets CMS’ new reimbursement requirements for Medicare Hospital Outpatients in 2013, while supporting the government’s non-proliferation goal of moving away from the use of HEU in the production of medical isotopes.”Mo-99 is the parent isotope of Tc-99m, which is the radioisotope most widely used for nuclear imaging tests. Tc-99m is used in approximately 15 million doses in the United States annually. As a leader in the radiopharmaceutical business, Lantheus has secured the most globally diversified and balanced Mo-99 supply chain in the industry, and receives the medical isotope from four of the five major processors and seven of the eight associated reactors.In 2012, Lantheus announced expanded access to LEU-sourced Mo-99 with an extended agreement with NTP Radioisotopes in South Africa. Under the five-year agreement, Lantheus will receive an increasing supply of Mo-99 produced from LEU targets from NTP Radioisotopes (NTP) and Australian Nuclear Science and Technology Organisation (ANSTO). Additionally, Lantheus announced continued supply of Mo-99 from Nordion, which will be used in the production of the company’s non-LEU TechneLite generators.“We continue to be committed to providing a stable, balanced and reliable supply of Mo-99 to our customers,” said Cyrille Villeneuve, chief commercial officer of Lantheus Medical Imaging. “Our gradual transition to LEU-sourced Mo-99 and the addition of the LEU TechneLite generator ensures that our customers will have continued access to Tc-99m, now and in the future. We believe our LEU strategy gives us a strong position in the generator market and provides a differentiated offering for our customers.”For more information: www.technelite.com FacebookTwitterLinkedInPrint分享 News | Radiopharmaceuticals and Tracers | July 01, 2019 Bracco Imaging Acquires Blue Earth Diagnostics Bracco Imaging S.p.A. has signed a definitive agreement to acquire Blue Earth Diagnostics, a molecular imaging company… read more center_img News | Radiopharmaceuticals and Tracers | May 10, 2019 | Jeff Zagoudis, Associate Editor Shine Medical Technologies Breaks Ground on U.S. Medical Isotope Production Facility Shine Medical Technologies Inc. broke ground on their first medical isotope production facility in Janesville, Wis.

Regulators Optimistic on Finalizing Risk Retention Rule

first_img in Daily Dose, Featured, Government, Headlines, News, Origination, Secondary Market Regulators Optimistic on Finalizing Risk Retention Rule Financial regulators said Tuesday they hope to finish their work on a rule aimed at tightening mortgage standards and reducing risk by the end of this year.In a Senate Banking Committee hearing, FDIC chair Martin Gruenberg said his agency and others are “in the end game” of their work on a rule that would require mortgage-backed securities (MBS) issuers to hold a stake on packaged loans that don’t meet certain exemption requirements.”I would hope, without making predictions, that we could complete that rulemaking by the end of the year,” Gruenberg told the committee Tuesday.Federal Reserve governor Daniel Tarullo echoed Gruenberg’s statement, though he was less concrete on a timeline: “I don’t know whether I’d say by the end of the year, but I think we’re definitely in the home stretch.”As it was proposed in 2011, the rule originally called for securities issuers to hold on to 5 percent of a mortgage’s risk after selling it unless the borrower made a 20 percent down payment.In response to industry concerns about access to homeownership, regulators have since loosened those standards to remove the down payment requirement, instead creating a parallel to the Consumer Financial Protection Bureau’s qualified mortgage definition and granting exemptions to qualified loans.If released this year, the finalized rule would achieve what former congressman Barney Frank said was the most important provision of 2010’s Dodd-Frank Act: a requirement that mortgage lenders keep some “skin in the game” rather than passing off risky loans.It would also be a step forward for the Dodd-Frank Act itself. As of July, analysts estimate only 52 percent of the required rulemakings set forth in the act have been finalized, with an additional 24 percent still yet to be proposed.

Residential Construction Spending Rises in June

first_img in Daily Dose, Data, Government, Headlines, News Share Construction spending received more funds in June 2015, rising 0.1 percent to a seasonally adjusted annual rate of $1,064.6 billion, according to the U.S. Census Bureau of the Department of Commerce June 2015 construction spending data.This June rate was 0.1 percent above the revised May estimate of $1,063.5 billion, and 12 percent above the June 2014 estimate of $950.3 billion, the Bureau reported.Construction spending has increased for six consecutive months this year and amounted to $482.7 billion during this time period. This total was 8 percent above the $446.8 billion worth of construction spending for the same period in 2014.According to the Census Bureau, spending on private construction was at a seasonally adjusted annual rate of $766.4 billion, 0.5 percent below the revised May estimate of $770 billion. Residential construction was at a seasonally adjusted annual rate of $371.6 billion in June, 0.4 percent above the revised May estimate of $370.0 billion., while nonresidential construction was at a seasonally adjusted annual rate of $394.8 billion in June, 1.3 percent below the revised May estimate of $400.0 billion.In June, the estimated seasonally adjusted annual rate of public construction spending was $298.2 billion, 1.6 percent above the revised May estimate of $293.5 billion, the Bureau said. Educational construction was at a seasonally adjusted annual rate of $67.2 billion, 0.2 percent above the revised May estimate of $67.1 billion. Highway construction was at a seasonally adjusted annual rate of $90.9 billion, 1.2 percent above the revised May estimate of $89.8 billion.Last week, Zillow reported that low inventory in the housing market has increased competition among home shoppers. Hopefully, with more money being poured into construction spending, inventory will see some positive gains.According to the first quarter Zillow Real Estate Market Report, there were fewer homes for sale in June than one year ago and much of the decline came from the lowest-valued homes sought by first-time homebuyers.”Historically low mortgage rates continue to keep overall ownership affordability very good by historical standards, making it a great time to buy a home, especially with rent becoming increasingly unaffordable,” said Zillow Chief Economist Stan Humphries. “Finding a house is the last hurdle for many buyers who have saved a down payment and gotten pre-approved for a mortgage. But low inventory levels like those we’re seeing across the country can bring the home-buying process to a screeching halt. In many markets, there just isn’t a lot to choose from in terms of homes on the market.”Click here to view the U.S. Census Bureau of the Department of Commerce June 2015 construction spending data.

assistant chief of the Williston Fire Department At first firefighters thought it was a small flare-up from a hotspot Brade said but soon it was a full blazeFlames were visible through the broken windows of the building as firefighters sprayed nearby buildings to keep the fire from spreading Between 30 and 40 firefighters were on the scene and it took nearly an hour to bring the fire under controlThe blaze came just days after work began to remove debris from the July 10 fire from the second floor of the building Structural engineers had determined that the entire top floor of the building was unstable and demolition work was to begin this weekMonday’s fire means the structure is going to have to be evaluated again Brade said"It seems like this is on replay" he saidMonday’s fire seems to have started near the eastern part of the building Brade said but the cause is still under investigation There is a large amount of debris on the second floor and because of that hot spots could have been lurking underneath Brade said If there were smoldering spots then work to remove debris could have exposed that to the air causing fire to flare upHot spots that last for weeks aren’t unusual especially after major fires Brade saidAfter the fire was under control Monday fire crews remained on the scene to continue soaking hot spots Brade said the fire department was going to blanket the top floor with fire retardant foam From there city officials fire investigators and structural engineers are going to work together to determine the cause of the second fire and evaluate the soundness of the building according to BradeThe building built in 1917 or 1918 was home to Hedderich’s department store until it closed in 1988 It replaced two other buildings that stood on the site one built in 1895 and one in 1898 After Hedderich’s closed building owner Dr Loye Ashton turned the building into an antique storeThe first floor didn’t suffer much fire damage from the original blaze and Brade said he believes that will be the case for Monday’s fire as well He said he expects much of what’s on the first floor will still be salvageable Neighboring buildings including Joan of Art which is in the Graphic building suffered some water damage from the first fire but no fire damage Brade said crews were in the building Monday to keep fire from spreading there and that they were
