Before the event college brass unwisely granted one of our journalists an interview with the iconic Canadian broadcaster, which our journalist promptly used to waste everyone’s time. LOUIS PIN/THE OBSERVER Twitter A: Actually I had a beard a couple times. I used to grow a beard every summer when I took time off and I used to go camping. And one year, there was a huge power failure right across northern U.S. and into southern Canada so they had me come back from the bush. I didn’t have time to shave my beard.They had extra generators brought in so we could do a program. Which has never made sense to me, because how could people watch us if they had no power? But enough people saw it and they were saying I should keep the beard.I kept it for a couple of days. It … didn’t work. But I haven’t (gone clean shaven) since the last day I did my show, which was two years ago.Q: So you’re loosening up a little! And speaking of loosening up — when you go to the grocery store do people still recognize you? Do they give you weird looks, or …A: Well you know, if I’m wearing a baseball cap and a beard maybe not. But if it’s in the neighbourhood, they don’t care anyway. Where I live in Stratford, it’s a town full of actors who are pretty famous; we also have a place in Toronto but the building we’re in Auston Matthews is there, Morgan Rielly is there. So they don’t really care too much about me.Q: Right. And those guys, do they know who you are? When you see (fellow Stratford native) Justin Bieber on the street — like you do — does he know you?A: Actually, I’ve never seen him on the street. He’s rarely there and, when he does come to town, it’s to see his parents or his grandparents. He comes, sort of slips into town on his jet at the little airport. But he’s loyal to Stratford and he’s loyal to his grandparents, so that’s good on him.center_img Peter Mansbridge was the featured speaker at Lambton College’s third annual President’s Gala on Saturday night, before which the college granted an Observer journalist an interview with the iconic Canadian broadcaster. Our apologies to Mansbridge who (to his credit) handled the following interview with all the professional grace and charm Canadians grew to love over Mansbridge’s many year at CBC’s The National.The following is lightly edited.Q: When David Letterman retired he grew out his beard.

Vaiko granted bail in case over IndiaSri Lanka comments

Senior Tamil Nadu politician and leader of the MDMK party Vaiko has been granted bail in a sedition case. A sessions court in Chennai granted bail to the leader after he moved an application seeking bail on Wednesday, One India reports.Vaiko had surrendered before the court in April in protest and refused to seek bail. The trial in the 2009 case is yet to begin and the MDMK leader condemned the delay and protested by surrendering. A sedition case was registered against the MDMK leader Vaiko in 2009 by the Chennai police for his speech warning that India would not remain a united single country if the war against banned outfit, Liberation Tigers of Tamil Eelam, in Sri Lanka was not stopped. A first information report was filed under the Unlawful Activities Prevention Act against Vaiko, who had also been slapped with charges of inciting people to indulge in violence in 2009.A staunch supporter of the LTTE, Vaiko had made inciteful statements warning that ‘bloodbath’ would take place in Tamil Nadu if anything happened to the then LTTE leader V Prabhakaran. His comments were made during the release of his book, ‘Naan Kutram Sattugiren’ (I am Making the Accusation), in 2009. While the chargesheet was filed in 2010, trial in the case is yet to begin. He had also said there was nothing wrong with youth taking to arms and joining the LTTE in its fight against the Sri Lankan army. read more

Rumor New Olympus Micro Four Thirds camera on March 2nd

first_img43Rumors has uncovered, via an anonymous tipster, that Olympus has new gear landing on March 2nd. The tipster was previously correct about another Olympus launch date (on February 8th) so it stands to reason that this one will be correct as well.What what should we expect from an upcoming Olympus release? 43Rumors hears that the company has a new Micro Four Thirds camera on the way, which might be landing in March as opposed to their expected date in May (the two “M” months are easy enough to confuse, right?). Forum-Olympus-France has some leaked prototype drawing that seem to confirm that Olympus has a new mirrorless camera in the works (see one shot above).Here’s hoping it’s the PEN E-P3! Or maybe not. After all, there is another minor event on March 2nd that might cause a digital camera announcement to get lost in the mix.Read mor at 43rumors.last_img read more

Diana of the Dunes – She Left Civilization to Become a Lake

first_imgIn October of 1915, a woman from Chicago moved to the city of Ogden Dunes, Indiana, on the banks of Lake Michigan. Her name was Alice Mabel Gray. She lived in an abandoned fishing cabin. Gray would go on to become a local icon, and even left an amusing urban legend as part of her legacy. A fisherman on the lake was the first to see her swimming — au naturel, according to Gray, who was then a mysterious unknown lady to the locals, became the subject of conversations. Tourists and locals alike tried to spot the swimmer in her birthday suit of Lake Michigan.So who was this nymph-like lady? There was more to Alice Gray than enjoying the freedom of her daily dip: the Chicago native had come to Ogden Dunes to escape city life. Her story has been documented by the Historical Society of Ogden Dunes.Indiana Dunes National Lakeshore is a U.S. National LakeshorePrior to moving to this remote place, she had enrolled at the University of Chicago in 1897, at only 16 years old. By the time she graduated in 1903, both her parents had died, leaving her as the sole guardian for her younger brother Chester.Gray then worked as a statistician at the U.S. Naval Observatory in Washington D.C., before going to the University of Göttingen, Germany to study Mathematics in 1906. Both these experiences made Gray feel like her career was blocked because educated women were not given the same chances of advancement as men at that time.Her career never took off, and she had to work at several jobs for which she was overqualified. Disillusioned by the way her career had gone, the 34-year-old opted to live as a recluse in the Dunes. While several others lived as hermits in this part of the region, it was a very unusual move for a lone woman according to David Hoppe, author of Child of the Northwest Wind: Alice Gray and “Diana of the Dunes”.Ogden Dunes. Photo by David Wilson CC BY 2.0“I wanted to live my own life — a free life. The life of a salary earner in the cities is slavery, a constant fight for the means of living,” Gray said to a reporter in 1916, according to the Historical Society of Ogden Dunes.Gray found herself liberated in her new life: she lived in harmony with the nature surrounding her, skinny dipping, gathering fruits and fishing, Hoppe says. She still bought food and supplies from various shopkeepers in the neighboring city of Chesterton and visited the Miller library regularly. She kept a source of revenue by editing manuscripts for the University of Chicago, delivered to her by mail.A woman living alone in such a remote place was so uncommon, Alice Gray quickly became a local sensation. David Hoppe says that the first reporter interviewed her in July 1916, so not even a year after she had settled in Ogden Dunes. Within a week of its publication, at least 25 variations of this interview ran in papers throughout the Midwest.Boundary with Ogden Dunes. Photo by Chris Light CC BY SA 4.0In another article, the Lake County Times said of Gray: “Twice daily, according to fishermen, the nymph of the dunes, whose name is not known, takes the plunge like the goddess of the wave.”Because of her romantic image, Alice Gray became a local figure associated with appreciation of the dunes and the lakeshore. In 1917, she was invited to speak at an event supporting the preservation of the dunes, organized by the Prairie Club.“Chicago is used to thinking of herself as the child of Lake Michigan, in the prosaic sense of her commercial origin; for the lake not only gave her her water-borne trade, but deflected the land routes between East and Northwest,” Gray wrote in her essay. “But when we come to form myths on our geological knowledge — as the Greeks did on their guesses — as to the origin of our city, we shall think of her as the child of Lake Michigan in a more poetic sense.”Ogden Dunes Community Church. Photo by hakkun CC BY-SA 3.0Gray found in this environmentalist movement a chance to fight for something she believed in, and was in direct opposition to the industrialist principles that drove her out of Chicago. Hoppe says that United States Steel had created the city of Gary, Indiana around what was at that time the largest steel plant in the world.A fight ensued between local intellectuals, for whom the dunes represented a form of “social liberation”, and United States Steel. The company looked at the land as a perfect site for a new plant.Ogden Dunes. Photo by Ken Lund CC BY-SA 2.0This environmentalist struggle, Hoppe reports, was part of the heritage of local Native American traditions, as well as the more modern movement of the Chicago Renaissance, which advocated for a strong sense of democracy, with politics linked to landscape aesthetics.Read another story from us: The Ghost Reported in the White House a Century ago Simply Called ‘The Thing’Today, Alice Gray’s legacy still lives on. Her efforts for the preservation of the dunes resulted in the creation of the Indiana Dunes State Park in 1925, according to The image of the “nymph of the dunes” has left an urban legend — and her spirit, known as “Diana of the Dunes,” is celebrated in an annual festival in Chesterton, Indiana.last_img read more

Berkery Noyes Upturn Just Starting for Mortgage Sector

first_img October 16, 2012 467 Views Berkery Noyes: Upturn Just Starting for Mortgage Sector in Data, Government, Origination, Secondary Market, Servicing, Technology The mortgage originations sector is just seeing the beginning of a recovery in volume and dollars, investment bank “”Berkery Noyes””: believes.[IMAGE]In a white paper from the firm, managing director John Guzzo wrote that rising home equity, lower excess vacant homes, and more flexible FHA refinance qualifications are all leading the originations sector to “”the beginning of an upward cycle in terms of both volume and dollars.””Guzzo also cited an increase in the number of mergers and acquisitions (M&A) tracked by Berkery Noyes. Within the banking segment, M&A volume has increased 50 percent on a quarterly basis. The increase “”suggests acquirers and investors are beginning to see a more long-term recovery in the housing and mortgage originations markets,”” Guzzo wrote.Guzzo specifically pointed to Ocwen’s recent acquisition of Homeward Residential Holdings, a sign that Ocwen is looking to expand its origination business while driving more business to its servicing divisions.M&A activity is also being influenced by changing regulatory framework that pushes mortgage companies to seek technology firms, Guzzo noted.[COLUMN_BREAK]With the Consumer Financial Protection Bureau (CFPB) authorized to more stringently enforce the Truth in Lending Act, lenders are facing more minimum standards before issuing residential mortgage loans, including those that are deemed to be high cost. They are also tasked with making a “”reasonable and good faith determination”” that the borrower has the ability to repay the loan prior to issuance. With these requirements, originators are expected to seek more integrated end-to-end offerings from technology vendors in the mortgage sector in order to help ensure compliance.””Companies that serve the origination sector are well-positioned to benefit from the rebounding real estate market. Likewise, there has been ongoing organic innovation and acquisitions by loan origination software (LOS) businesses, in order to provide a more bundled solution ├â┬ó├óÔÇÜ┬¼├é┬ª At the same time, mortgage originators are looking for tools to shorten processing times, better manage sales leads, and bolster customer retention rates when dealing with repeat homeowners,”” Guzzo wrote.Stephen Margrett, founder and owner of mortgage technology company “”The Turning Point””:, agreed.””Driven by increased competition for loan originations and the demands of stringent regulation, we are witnessing an accelerating focus on mortgage marketing at the corporate level,”” Margrett said. “”One consequence is that conventional CRM (customer relationship management) products have been rendered inadequate.””Those older products are being replaced by automated marketing solutions that create a controlled environment for all players in the marketing process to collaborate, he added.With home prices and consumer confidence both showing improvement, Berkery Noyes also expects to see growth in the secondary market, including the vendors that serve it.center_img Agents & Brokers Attorneys & Title Companies Compliance Confidence Consumer Financial Protection Bureau Dodd-Frank Home Prices Investors Lenders & Servicers Regulation Service Providers 2012-10-16 Tory Barringer Sharelast_img read more
