Renault could appeal Japan disqualification

first_imgAt an FIA meeting in Geneva on Wednesday, the governing body ruled that whilst the Renault cars were not guilty of any technical regulation infringement relating to using presets, the brake bias adjustment system used by both drivers has been deemed to be a driver aid and thus breached another regulation.Renault have until 10 am local time on Thursday to notify the FIA if they wish to appeal, and currently they are considering their “next course of action”.“Renault acknowledges the decision of the Stewards of the Japanese Grand Prix regarding the protest by Racing Point concerning the legality of Renault F1 Team’s braking system during the Japanese Grand Prix,” said Renault’s official statement.“Despite the FIA concurring with Renault that the system was entirely legal under the FIA technical regulations, it was judged by the stewards that the system was in breach of the FIA sporting regulations regarding driver aid.“Both Renault cars were disqualified from the Japanese Grand Prix and the team loses the nine points scored.“However, considering the subjectivity of the qualification of a system as a driver aid and the variability of the associated penalties in recent cases, Renault F1 Team will consider its next course of action within the timeframe laid out by the FIA.”Daniel Ricciardo and Nico Hulkenberg slip to P12 and 13 respectively in the Drivers’ Championship following the decision, while Toro Rosso move to within 18 points of the French manufacturer in the Constructors’ Championship.0Shares0000(Visited 9 times, 1 visits today) 0Shares0000Renault could appeal Japan disqualificationLONDON, United Kingdom, Oct 24 – Renault will now consider whether or not to appeal their disqualification from the Japanese Grand Prix for the use of driver aids.Racing Point submitted an appeal after the Japanese GP saying that they suspected Renault were ‘using a pre-set lap distance-dependent brake bias adjustment system’ but, in Renault’s written defence, they claimed that this allegation came from an ex-exployee who ‘was not aware of all the pertinent details of Renault’s brake control system’.last_img read more

Protecting you from ID thieves

first_imgBy the Editors of Consumer Reports As Congress and the states consider proposals aimed at reducing identity theft, a poll by the Consumer Reports National Research Center reveals that most Americans want lawmakers to restrict the use and availability of Social Security numbers by businesses and government agencies. According to the recent poll, some 89 percent of Americans agree that state and federal lawmakers should pass laws restricting the use of Social Security numbers. Americans routinely are asked for Social Security numbers by businesses and government agencies, a practice that fuels concerns about identity theft. Social Security numbers are particularly sensitive information because they can provide the key to unlocking a consumer’s financial identity. According to experts from Consumers Union, the nonprofit publisher of Consumer Reports, the widespread use of Social Security numbers has made it easier for crooks to commit fraud and contributes to the 10 million cases of identity theft every year. Poll results were based on a telephone survey using a nationally representative sample of 1,016 households of adults ages 18 and older. The poll revealed that 87 percent of consumers have been asked in the past year to provide their Social Security number in whole or in part by a business or government agency. Requests come from a wide variety of businesses for purposes beyond credit, employment or tax compliance. Many requests come from businesses that have no clear need to collect these numbers. Collection and use of Social Security numbers is common. The poll also revealed the following: In the past year, 60 percent of consumers have been asked by a financial institution or retailer issuing credit to provide their Social Security number; 49 percent have been asked to disclose their number to health-care providers. Consumers also reported being asked to provide their Social Security number in the past year to a wide variety of other entities, including employers or potential employers (44 percent); insurance companies (36 percent); government agencies other than the IRS or a state tax body (32 percent); a college or another school (28 percent); a service provider such as cable TV or cell phone carrier (26 percent); utilities (17 percent); and a merchant or retailer (16 percent). More than four in 10 Americans (42 percent) have been asked to provide their full or partial Social Security number on the phone or Internet to access goods or services or to verify their identity to customer-service representatives. Fifty-two percent of Americans carry a card in their wallets that displays their number. The poll also found that Americans worry about the widespread availability of Social Security numbers and how businesses are using them. Some 78 percent would prefer not to provide their number, but are concerned about the consequences of refusing to do so, and 91 percent agreed they are more vulnerable to identity theft when a business has their number. Since January 2005, data security breaches have occurred at companies, schools and government agencies involving an estimated 159 million records of sensitive consumer information, often including Social Security numbers. Ninety-eight percent agreed that companies and government agencies should always be required to notify them if a database containing their number has been compromised. Consumers Union has called on legislators to restrict the availability of Social Security numbers to prevent this sensitive information from falling into the hands of identity thieves. The organization recommends that the sale and purchase of the numbers be tightly restricted and that solicitation be prohibited except where required by law or where needed for credit, employment, tax compliance or investment purposes.

Regulators give advice on exotic loans

first_imgHere’s what regulators are requiring of lenders: Ensure that loan terms and underwriting standards are consistent with prudent lending practices, including consideration of a borrower’s repayment capacity. Recognize that many nontraditional mortgage loans, particularly when they have risk-layering features, are untested in a stressed environment. These products require strong risk management standards, such as proper capital levels. Ensure that consumers have sufficient information to clearly understand loan terms and associated risks prior to making a decision. Regulators began working on the guidelines at the end of last December. The impact on the industry is unclear at this point. Institutions that fail to follow the guidelines will be asked to take “remedial action,” according to the Fed. That action will be determined on a case-by-case basis. John Karevoll, a market analyst for La Jolla-based DataQuick Information Systems, doubts that the increased scrutiny will have much impact on home sales, which are already in the tank here. Lenders were able to make riskier loans during the boom because they were better able to quantify the risk they were taking and fold it into the cost the mortgage holder was willing to pay. During the boom, there were not that many people who bought a home without putting some money down, and 20percent was still the norm, he said. Nor were lenders running amok, either. “There may have been some rogue lending institutions out there, but the vast majority are very cautious,” Karevoll said.160Want local news?Sign up for the Localist and stay informed Something went wrong. Please try again.subscribeCongratulations! You’re all set! It took a while, but regulators from five federal agencies have finally issued guidance to address the risks posed by nontraditional mortgage products. These are the ones with hooks that let the holders postpone paying down the principal and sometimes even interest. In the marketplace, they are also touted as exotic or alternative loans and have such attractions as interest-only features and payment-option adjustables. Bottom line, most offer lower payments now and the opportunity for higher payments later. These products are not new but grew in popularity as housing prices exploded over the past five years. Educating consumers is the goal of the new guidelines. “The guidance urges institutions to provide consumers with clear, balanced and timely information concerning the risk of these products,” Federal Reserve Board Governor Susan Bies said at the end of last month. “It is important that consumers have the information they need at critical decision times, such as when selecting a loan product or when choosing a monthly mortgage-payment option.” One concern is that these products sound appealing. As prices increased, the potential pool of borrowers grew to include those who could not qualify for a traditional, 30-year fixed-rate home loan. last_img read more

West Virginia ~ Property Tax: Joint Tenant Not Entitled to Sole Ownership After Payment of Tax Bill in Full

first_imgCCH Tax Day ReportThe West Virginia Supreme Court of Appeals affirmed a judgment of the circuit court which dismissed a taxpayer’s civil action claiming full ownership of real property, partly owned by his sister, on the ground that there was no legal basis for awarding the other owner’s interest to the taxpayer. The taxpayer had paid the full amount of property taxes on the jointly-owned subject property for tax year 2014. Thereafter he filed a civil action claiming that his sister should cede her interest in the property because she had failed to shoulder her share of the tax burden, but this was dismissed by the circuit court. Under the applicable statute, holders of interests in real estate that are not separately assessed who pay taxes on the interest of another in the real estate may be subrogated to the lien of the state on the interest, provided they file their claim with the clerk of the county court within 30 days. On appeal, the Supreme Court observed that the taxpayer did not file his claim in writing with the clerk and had failed to provide a copy of the tax receipt as required by the statute; accordingly, the circuit court was found not to have erred in quashing the civil action.Mitchell v. Worrell, West Virginia Supreme Court of Appeals, No. 15-1183, November 18, 2016, ¶401-248last_img read more

 

Using Google’s Big Data – Google Trends

first_imgIt could be argued that Google is THE Big Data company. Google is responsible for the majority of global search activity, it is profitable, and most importantly it has done a great job of finding value in Big Data. The majority of their revenue comes from selling advertisement and much has been written about how Google ranks search results. But this post is not about search results, instead it’s about what people are searching for and best ofall, anyone can interrogate this data using a free tool called Google Trends.What is Google Trends? How does it work?Google Trends is a free tool that shows the relative interest of search terms typed into the Google search engine. The key term here is‘relative.’ Just because the slope of a line is down doesn’t necessarily mean the search popularity of a term is decreasing in absolute popularity. It could be that other terms are increasing in popularity. It’s also important to note that Google Trends is based on a sample of data and the tool will sometimes not have enough search volume to show results (Like “snow storm” in Florida. Has anyone else used Google Trends in their company? If so, how did you use it? I wanted to share Google Trends for two reasons. Firstly, it provides some great information on the interests of consumers around the world. This information can be invaluable for understanding what consumers think of your brand. Secondly, it shows how Big Data can provide value to people without a technical background and (almost) no training. Uses for Google TrendsGoogle’s Chief Economist Hal Varian has done a good job of explaining some of the uses for Google Trends both in forecasting economic activity in the retail and real estate in his paper at Berkeley in 2011 is another great example. Also based on Google Trends data, Flu Trends gives an almost real-time estimate of current flu activity based on the number of flu-related searches. There was even a Nature article on using Google Trends to predict the Dow Jones Industrial Average. At Ford, we’ve used Google Trends to compare the search interest of different vehicle lines and found the geographic information to be very interesting.Conclusion Even with these limitations, Google Trends does a good job of showing relative search interest across a number of different dimensions, including geography, time, category of search, and by different types of search (e.g., web, news, image, shopping and YouTube.) In addition, the tool shows news headlines along the timeline as well as a forecast of the time series, where possible .last_img read more
