All kids should get vaccinated for hepatitis B at birth experts sayAll kids should get vaccinated for hepatitis B at birth experts say

first_imgTORONTO – Clinicians and researchers attending an international conference say all Canadian children should be vaccinated against hepatitis B starting at birth to prevent the development of potentially deadly liver disease later in life, a policy recommended by the World Health Organization.Currently, most provinces and territories immunize children against the liver-destroying virus when they are much older, including Ontario and Nova Scotia, which suggest children be vaccinated as late as 12 years old.Hepatitis B is transmitted through blood and other bodily fluids. The virus attacks the liver, causing ongoing scar-forming inflammation that over time can lead to cirrhosis, liver failure or liver cancer.The call for at-birth immunization comes from international experts attending the Global Hepatitis Summit in Toronto, which runs through Sunday.“There is a misconception that we only need to offer older children vaccination in the years before they become sexually active, since sexual activity is one of the routes of transmission,” said Dr. Harry Janssen, director of the Toronto Centre for Liver Disease, who is attending the conference.“Hepatitis B is not just a disease that is transmitted by sexual activity, it’s also transmitted by blood-to-blood contact,” Janssen said in an interview. “Children play with each other … bite each other, scratch each other, share each other’s toothbrush. There’s household contact with people who have hepatitis B.“So there is a definite risk of getting this infection in childhood.”An estimated 230,000 Canadians are infected with hepatitis B, but many are unaware they harbour the virus. Less than 60 per cent of those infected have been diagnosed and only a quarter of those eligible for treatment are believed to be receiving it, doctors say.Worldwide, an estimated 257 million people are living with hepatitis B, says WHO. In 2015, almost 900,000 people died as a result of the disease, which is known as a “silent killer.”“In the first years, you don’t have any symptoms,” said Janssen. “But then people show up after the age of 40, 45 with liver cancer and they didn’t even know they had the infection.”Infants and young children are among those at the highest risk of infection, and the disease has the worst impact within that age range, since more than 90 per cent will develop chronic hepatitis B, he said. While the risk of progression to severe liver disease is highest among children infected before their first birthday, up to half of kids aged one to five also will develop a chronic form of infection.That compares to five to 10 per cent of those infected at 18 or older, WHO says. Between 20 and 30 per cent of adults who are chronically infected will develop cirrhosis and/or liver cancer.“That’s a very important reason to vaccinate at an early age, because if these children get infected, the likelihood of them getting chronic disease is much higher,” stressed Janssen.The vaccine against hepatitis B has been available since 1982 and is 95 per cent effective in preventing infection and the development of chronic disease and liver cancer caused by the virus.WHO recommends that all infants should receive their first dose of vaccine as soon as possible after birth, preferably within 24 hours.Two other doses would follow a couple of months apart, typically at the same time as other childhood immunizations are given, starting at two months of age.However, policies for when hepatitis B shots should be given vary widely across Canada.P.E.I. and Yukon vaccinate young children from age two months, but only New Brunswick, Nunavut and the Northwest Territories offer inoculate at birth.Other provinces immunize children when they are older: Manitoba at age nine, Alberta at 10, and Saskatchewan and Newfoundland and Labrador at 11. British Columbia introduced vaccination for infants from age two months in 2001, followed by Quebec in 2013, although that province still inoculates children who are not covered by the new program at age nine.“Since all children across Canada will eventually be vaccinated regardless of where they live, why don’t we just remove this lottery and routinely vaccinate them all from birth?” said Janssen.“This will reduce new cases of hepatitis B among children to near zero and remove the chance that any of them will become chronically infected.”The Canadian Paediatric Society recommends immunizing all children before they reach adolescence, although newborns of mothers who have hepatitis B should receive at-birth inoculation.The CPS also advises vaccination for: anyone living in a home with a hepatitis B-infected person; all children whose families have immigrated from areas with high rates of hepatitis B or who are travelling to such countries; and children with conditions that require frequent transfusions of blood or blood products or who are on hemodialysis for kidney disease.Dr. John Ward of the Centers for Disease Control said that since 2005, the U.S. agency had recommended that all newborns in the country receive a birth dose of the vaccine within the first three days of life, which subsequently decreased transmission of the virus by more than 90 per cent.In January, the CDC updated that advice, recommending that all infants be vaccinated within 24 hours of birth, in line with WHO’s policy. At the same time, it said babies born to hepatitis B-infected mothers should also be given hepatitis B antibodies to further protect against infection.The WHO has set a goal of eliminating hepatitis B worldwide by 2030, and the UN body has called on all countries to sign on to that commitment.“The cornerstone of elimination of hepatitis B is hepatitis B vaccination of young children beginning at birth, because they are at the highest risk of remaining infected,” said Ward, director of the CDC’s viral hepatitis division.“And if they become infected, 25 per cent of them will die of hepatitis B if they’re not diagnosed and managed and treated in later life.”There is no overall cure for the disease, added Janssen, though medications can suppress replication of the virus in the liver, helping to limit damage.About five per cent of those being treated are able to eradicate the virus from their bodies, but the rest must take the drugs for the remainder of their lives, he said.— Follow @SherylUbelacker on Twitter.last_img read more

Ohio State womens lacrosse edges out Michigan for programrecord 8th straight winOhio State womens lacrosse edges out Michigan for programrecord 8th straight win

OSU women’s lacrosse members celebrate a win over Maryland on May 1. Credit: Courtesy of Ben SolomanThe No. 15 Ohio State women’s lacrosse team started its in-conference season on the right foot with a 10-9 win over Michigan in snowy Ann Arbor, Michigan, on Saturday. The hard-fought battle between the Buckeyes and the Wolverines allowed OSU to improve to 10-1, setting the program record with eight consecutive wins and the best start to a season.Senior attackman Cian Dabrowski led the Buckeyes with three goals on the day, while sophomore attackman Molly Wood and junior midfielder Paulina Constant each contributed two.OSU trailed 3-1 in the first half, but the defense held the Michigan attack while the offense tied it up with consecutive goals from Dabrowski and Wood. The Buckeyes led 4-3 going into halftime when senior attackman Rainey Hodgson found Wood for the score with two minutes left.The Buckeyes lost the lead again after the intermission, though, trailing 6-5 with 21 minutes left. But the Buckeyes clicked from there.Over the next 12 minutes, OSU scored five consecutive goals to give it a 10-6 lead. Constant started the trend with an unassisted goal with under 19 on the clock before Dabrowski and Hodgson added one each. With 10 minutes left, freshman midfielder Mackenzie Maring got into the action by scooping up a rebound from Wood’s shot to make it 9-6. Constant then added the 10th and final goal about a minute later.It certainly seemed like with the four-goal lead and all the momentum in the Buckeyes’ favor, the game was pretty well at hand. But, desperately trying to defend its home turf against its archrival, Michigan clawed back to make it a game again.The Wolverines notched three goals over the final seven minutes, the last of which put them one goal behind the Buckeyes with 23 seconds remaining. After a timeout, Dabrowski came in clutch with a draw control to help OSU run out the clock and hold on to the victory. Senior goalkeeper Katie Fredrick made four saves on the day.OSU beat Michigan for the fourth consecutive time, and the Wolverines fell to 5-7 on the season and 0-1 in Big Ten play.Up nextThe Buckeyes are next scheduled to return to Columbus to welcome No. 9 Penn State at 4 p.m. on Saturday. The game is set to be played at Jesse Owens Memorial Stadium. read more

Reds secure National League playoff spotReds secure National League playoff spot

The day Reds fans have been waiting for since 1995 has arrived. Cincinnati is going back to the playoffs. This year, there will be no repeat of 1999, when the Mets’ Al Leiter tossed a complete game, two-hit shutout in a one-game playoff game to slam the door to the playoffs shut on a Reds team that won 96 games. No promise unfulfilled of the Ken Griffey Jr, Adam Dunn and Austin Kearns era. 2010 was supposed to be the “year before the year” for the Reds. All signs pointed to contending in 2011. Another year for Jay Bruce and Drew Stubbs to acclimate themselves at the plate. Another year for Johnny Cueto, Edinson Volquez and Homer Bailey to adjust to major league hitters. A year for top prospect and $30 million man Aroldis Chapman to marinate in the minors. But something happened in 2010: Joey Votto became a left-handed hitting Albert Pujols. Votto’s 2010, likely to result in the National League MVP, has been full of moments that will go down in Reds lore. His three-run, game-tying bomb off Phillies closer Brad Lidge in the bottom of the ninth inning in early July. His 10-pitch, mono-a-mono at-bat against flame-throwing Dodgers closer Jonathan Broxton in August, which resulted in a two-run single. His flirtation with the National League Triple Crown. But let us not forget about the man that fills up the lineup card. Perhaps the best indication of manager Dusty Baker’s influence on this team has been his guiding through some incredibly traumatic losses. He’s been as much of a therapist this season as a strategist. The Reds lost to the Braves in late May on Brooks Conrad’s pinch-hit grand slam that went off Laynce Nix’s glove at the wall. The Reds allowed seven runs in the ninth to lose 10-9. They dropped four in a row in Philadelphia to end the first half. In one game, Travis Wood took a perfect game into the ninth inning, but the Reds couldn’t scrape a run off ace Roy Halladay and the Phillies won in 11. They were the victims of a four-game sweep earlier this month by the Rockies, the last loss particularly painful after Colorado shortstop Chris Nelson stole home in the eighth inning to give his team a one-run lead and complete a comeback from a 5-0 third-inning deficit. It’s been an up-and-down campaign that’s led the Reds somewhere few thought they would be at the end of the year: the playoffs. At times in their hunt for a Red October this season, Cincinnati invoked some magic of the Big Red Machine era. Perhaps they can continue playing with rose-colored sunglasses deep into October. read more

Microsoft accused of censorship for banning swastikas from Black Ops multiplayerMicrosoft accused of censorship for banning swastikas from Black Ops multiplayer

first_imgActivision‘s latest shooter Call of Duty: Black Ops takes place during the Vietnam War, which isn’t exactly known for its strong Nazi presence… but even if you want to rewrite history in the multiplayer, don’t expect Microsoft to let you: they’ve banned swastikas from Black Ops‘s online multiplayer.The Nazi-ban was outed by Xbox Live director of policy and enforcement Stephen Toulouse, who recently respond to a Tweet asking if it would be okay to use a swastika as a player emblem in Call of Duty: Black Ops.The common sense answer is obviously “no,” which Toulouse quickly said… but amazingly, the one word answer sparked quite a controversy on Twitter as numerous gamers questioned whether or not that was a form of censorship.“Suddenly, my twitter stream was filled with people stating that Xbox LIVE should equally ban the star of David, the Christian cross… because under various niche interpretations of those symbols, they are as evil as the swastika symbol and I should apply ethical relativism to all symbols on Xbox LIVE to respect all viewpoints because of the United States First Amendment,” Toulouse explains.He went on to say: “It’s not political correctness, it’s fundamental respect. If you think the swastika symbol should be reevaluated by societies all over the Earth, I think that’s great,. Your Xbox LIVE profile or in game logo, which doesn’t have the context to explain your goal, is not the right place to do that.”Agreed. Even if I didn’t agree, though, who can blame Microsoft for wanting to play it safe? There’s already enough hate speech on Xbox Live that is beyond Microsoft’s control, mostly through voice chat… who can fault them from wanting to avoid a public relations disaster by openly encouraging neo-nazis on top of that?Read more at Step Tolast_img read more

Pontian Professionals honour Michael AtkinsonPontian Professionals honour Michael Atkinson

first_imgGiven the reception South Australia’s Attorney-General Michael Atkinson received this weekend at the Pontian Professionals and Business Forum of Oceania dinner and the Australian Hellenic Council function, there is no doubt he is heading for status of Greek hero. Mr Atkinson, a self confessed Philhellene, was instrumental in having the Pontian genocide recognised by the South Australian parliament in April. At the Pontian Professionals dinner on Friday, Mr Atkinson was presented with a 1200 year old coin for his leading role in the passing of the motion to have the Pontian genocide recognised. At the dinner held at the stately Windsor Hotel, Mr Atkinson was praised by Ms Jenny Mikakos Victorian Parliamentary Secretary for Planning, who highlighted the impact of actions such as those by Mr Atkinson, in gaining recognition for the genocide of the Pontian and other Christians in Ottoman Turkey. In thanking his hosts Mr Atkinson said, “The rightness of the Pontian cause has long been obvious to me. And the passionate, yet considered way Greeks feel about the world acknowledging the Pontian Genocide is both justified and admirable.”The South Australian politician highlighted that fact that he did not realise the “depth and feeling” of the Greek people towards this issue until he was in Thessaloniki this year where he spoke in front of over 20,000 people in Ayia Sophia square. “[I]n the packed square of Ayia Sophia situated in the middle of that wonderful city – I heard the voice of the people,” Mr Atkinson said. He went on to implore the Pontian Greek community to maintain their vigilance and to generate a “sophisticated approach” to communications in an increasingly fast paced media and communications environment. He also was fulsome in his praise of the Pontian Professionals.“Your group clearly has that ability, and I have every confidence you’ll help take the efforts of the Pontian diaspora up to a whole new level,” Mr Atkinson said.Dignitaries present at Friday night’s dinner include Dr Con Perkoulidis, President of the Pontian Professionals and Business Forum of Oceania; Mr Tom Moisidis Chairman of the Forum; Mr John Efkarpides, President of the Federation of Pontian Associations of Australia; Mr Bill Papastergiadis, President of the Greek Orthodox Community of Melbourne and Victoria and Mr Peter Jasonides, Secretary of the World Confederation of Pontian Associations. On Saturday night Mr Atkinson was also honoured by the Australian Hellenic Council for his efforts in promoting the recognition of the Pontian Genocide at a function at the Star Reception Centre in Preston.

Braconnage 81 éléphants empoisonnés au cyanure au ZimbabweBraconnage 81 éléphants empoisonnés au cyanure au Zimbabwe

first_imgBraconnage : 81 éléphants empoisonnés au cyanure au ZimbabweSelon les autorités du Zimbabwe, 81 éléphants ont été empoisonnés au cyanure par des braconniers. Néanmoins, neuf d’entre eux ont pu être arrêtés.Au Zimbabwe, seuls 50 rangers patrouillent dans le parc national Hwange qui s’étend pourtant sur 15.000 kilomètres carrés (quasiment la taille de la Suisse). C’est dans ce parc qu’ont été découverts, en quelques mois, 81 éléphants empoisonnés au cyanure. Les autorités, qui parlent “d’une crise majeure”, indiquent que c’est la méthode qu’utilisent maintenant les braconniers pour retirer leurs défenses en ivoire aux pachydermes. Ces animaux, pourtant une espèce protégée, sont près de 50.000 dans ce parc, ce qui attire beaucoup de convoitises. Jerry Gotora, un responsable de l’office des parcs nationaux, explique que “le poison a été placé à des endroits où les éléphants paissent, et non dans l’eau comme cela a été dit”. Si cela avait été le cas, les conséquences auraient été encore plus dramatiques car le cyanure aurait également entrainé la mort de nombreux autres animaux (buffles, koudous et leurs prédateurs lions, léopards, vautours, etc.).Un massacre difficile à enrayer Face à cela, le nouveau ministre de l’Environnement zimbabwéen, Savior Kasukuere, a décidé de déclarer “la guerre” au braconnage et “la tolérance zéro”. Les rangers ont réussi à interpeller neuf suspects. Six d’entre eux détenaient 17 défenses en ivoire. La menace du braconnage n’a jamais été aussi importante pour les éléphants depuis l’interdiction de la commercialisation de l’ivoire. Et des cas d’empoisonnements ont déjà été signalés dans d’autres pays que le Zimbabwe. Selon un document publié récemment par la Convention sur le commerce international des espèces protégées (Cites), les pachydermes traversent actuellement “la plus grave crise de conservation” depuis 1989 avec pas moins de 25.000 spécimens braconnés rien qu’en 2012. Et les pays peinent à enrayer le massacre malgré les moyens mis en oeuvre, de plus en plus importants.Un braconnier condamné à 3 ans de prison ferme Néanmoins, la lutte n’est pas complètement vaine. Mardi, Symphorien Sangha, un homme décrit comme l’un des principaux braconniers d’ivoire d’Afrique centrale a été condamné à trois ans de prison ferme pour “abattage illégal d’éléphants”, selon le Fonds mondial pour la Nature (WWF). Le tribunal de grande instance de la Boumba-et-Ngoko au Cameroun a également condamné le braconnier arrêté en octobre 2012 à une amende de 22 millions de francs CFA (soit environ 33.000 euros).À lire aussiMaladie de Charcot : symptômes, causes, traitement, où en est on ?Son frère jumeau, René, arrêté en août en possession de deux pointes d’ivoire, doit être jugé mercredi, a précisé l’AFP. Selon le WWF, “les frères Sangha sont actifs depuis au moins 2006 dans l’espace de la Sangha”, une forêt de plus de huit millions d’hectares qui s’étend au Cameroun, au Congo et en Centrafrique et sont “responsables de la mort de plus de cent éléphants dans les forêts d’Afrique centrale”.Plus de 15 ans de prison pour les empoisonneurs Mercredi, la radio d’Etat Spot FM a annoncé que les suspects qui ont été arrêtés suite à l’empoisonnement des pachydermes ont écopé de peines bien plus lourdes. Le tribunal du Zimbabwe a condamné un homme de 25 ans à 16 ans de prison et à une amende de 440.000 euros. Ses co-accusés, âgés respectivement de 42 ans et 24 ans, ont eux écopé de 15 ans de prison et de 150.000 euros d’amende chacun.”Les autorités des parcs nationaux et de la faune ont salué ce jugement comme une arme de dissuasion contre d’éventuels braconniers”, a souligné Spot FM repris par l’ATS. Il y a deux ans, neuf éléphants, cinq lions et deux buffles étaient morts, empoisonnés au cyanure dans le parc Hwange National Park.Le 26 septembre 2013 à 09:53 • Maxime Lambertlast_img read more

Woman pushing stroller struck killed in Camas crashWoman pushing stroller struck killed in Camas crash

first_imgA woman who was pushing a stroller died Tuesday when she was struck by a sport utility vehicle in Camas. The woman was walking south across Northeast Third Avenue near Weir Street when a white Toyota Sequoia traveling east hit her and the stroller, according to the Camas Police Department. The crash was reported at 4:56 p.m.The woman, whose name was not released pending family notification, was dead when firefighters arrived, according to Camas Fire Chief Nick Swinhart. At the time of the crash, she was wearing dark clothing and was not in a crosswalk, police said. A young boy was strapped into the stroller when the SUV struck it, but the boy did not sustain any injuries, police said. The boy was transported to PeaceHealth Southwest Medical Center for an evaluation, and his mother was expected to pick him up from the hospital, police said. It is unclear how the woman pushing the stroller knew the boy.The man driving the SUV was not injured in the crash and cooperated with police. Austin Beaudoin, 13, said he was eating at a Taco Bell restaurant on Third Avenue when his younger brother, 12-year-old Nathan Beaudoin, pointed his attention toward the road. Austin Beaudoin said that’s when he witnessed the collision. “I couldn’t really believe I saw someone die,” he said. “I was pretty scared honestly.”He said he felt especially bad for the woman’s family because it’s almost Christmas. He and some of his friends went to the nearby Dollar Tree and bought candles, a balloon and a poster. They wrote “R.I.P.” on the poster and made a memorial near the scene of the crash.last_img read more

While the mode extended my desktop, the feature didn’t exactly work as I expected. But with a little bit of poking around, using both my finger and the Apple Pencil, I found out how to use Sidecar mode efficiently.Just a heads up that this tutorial is based on interactions with the beta versions of the software, so the performance of Sidecar here may not be as snappy as you might expect from Apple. At one point during my testing, the iPad needed to be restarted so it could reconnect to the MacBook Pro I was using for the testing.But if you want to try this feature early, here’s how to check out Sidecar on your Mac and iPad.How to use Sidecar to pair your Mac and iPadOnce you’ve installed macOS Catalina on a Mac and installed iPadOS on an iPad, you’re good to go. These instructions work whether or not the machines are physically tethered, so don’t worry about trying to find a USB-C-to-Lightning or USB-C-to-USB-C cable to connect the two.First up, click the iPad logo in the Menu Bar on your Mac. This logo should show up automatically, but if you don’t see it, look instead for the Displays icon (a rectangle on top of a triangle pointing upward).Then, select the iPad you want to connect to the iPad, and then watch your iPad’s screen change to a second version of your Mac’s desktop. For starters, you can test out the feature by dragging windows from your Mac to the iPad; just move them off of one side of your screen.Oh, and if you don’t like the specific side of the screen that Sidecar places adjacent to your iPad virtually, you can fix that. Open System Preferences, click Displays and click Arrangement. Here, you’ll see the iPad represented by a smaller screen, which doesn’t have a white menu bar at the top, and you can click and drag this smaller screen to another edge of your main screen. I’d do this to make sure the screens’ virtually alignment matches how they’re physically set up at your workstation.Also, make sure that both devices are plugged in to power. I’ve seen the iPad’s screen have issues when the Mac goes to sleep; for example, a section of the screen could go dark until you lock and unlock the tablet.How touch works in SidecarMy biggest misunderstanding with Sidecar has come when figuring out how much of the extended macOS screen is touch sensitive. Your digits can activate only the Touch Bar line items on the frame of the screen, not the actual macOS interface, such as windows, the Menu bar or icons.Those virtual Touch Bar icons include the modifier keys from the keyboard, like Command, Control, Option and Shift. My favorite, though, minimizes and opens the dock, which you don’t always need on the iPad.Yes, that’s an incredibly frustrating limitation, but I can see the reason for it. The macOS interface is meant for interactions with a cursor, not your (much larger) fingertip.Use the PencilThis is where Apple’s Pencil stylus accessory ($99 to $129) becomes incredibly important. The Pencil is the only way to click and drag and otherwise interact with macOS elements when they’re on the iPad.Of course, the Pencil can also act as an accessory when you’re drawing. You can check this out in the Notes app, when you tap the Image button and select Add Sketch; your iPad’s screen will get all of the annotation tools that now come standard in iPadOS.Pros should love this, too, as Apple says Sidecar’s Pencil support will work in Illustrator, Affinity Photo and ZBrush.Sidecar alternativesFeel disappointed by Sidecar’s restraints? Duet Display and Luna Display both allow you to actually touch the macOS interface and don’t limit you to the Pencil.On the downside, those both cost extra ($69.99 for Luna Display, $9.99 for Duet Display). Also, I’d wager that the final version of Sidecar will be as smooth as or even more responsive than these options. Henry T. Casey, on Henry T.

Colombia government rebels to set up truth commissionColombia government rebels to set up truth commission

Peru rescues 15 people including children held by Shining Path rebelsPeru rescues 15 people including children held by Shining Path rebels

first_imgLIMA, Peru – Peruvian troops rescued seven children and eight adults who were kidnapped by Shining Path rebels, an official said Saturday.The children, aged 4 to 13, were malnourished and had skin diseases, said Deputy Defense Minister Ivan Vega. The rescue took place with no shots fired, he said.The Shining Path, a Maoist guerrilla group that fought successive governments starting in 1980, was for the most part dismantled in the mid-1990s but its remnants remain active in coca-growing areas of Peru.The fighting left some 69,000 people dead, according to Peru’s Truth and Reconciliation Commission.The government accuses the remnants of the group of working with drug traffickers to raise money. The rebels keep children and women as hostages to use them as human shields against attacks and to raise the youth in bondage with an eye to raising them as rebel fighters, the government says.The guerrillas have a home base in what Peru calls the VRAEM — an area of largely untouched jungle in south central Peru connecting the regions of Huancayo, Ayacucho, Apurimác and Cusco.On Monday the army said it had freed 26 children and 13 adults. Vega said the rebels are holding 60 to 80 more children in hard-to-reach areas.

Mortgage Fraud Risk Report Shows Fraud is a Problem Defined by GeographyMortgage Fraud Risk Report Shows Fraud is a Problem Defined by Geography

first_img Share in Daily Dose, Data, Headlines, News Mortgage Fraud Risk Report Shows Fraud is a Problem Defined by Geography Interthinx released its quarterly Mortgage Fraud Risk Report, revealing that the National Mortgage Fraud Risk Index is 101 for Q4 2014, a 3 percent increase from the last quarter and the exact same as last year. Trends at the state, MSA, and ZIP-code levels reveal fraud triggers, according to Interthinx.Interthinx provides complete risk mitigation solutions for the financial services industry and is a subsidiary of First American Financial Corporation. The Mortgage Fraud Risk Report provides knowledge about current trends in the home buying market through the analysis of millions of loan applications that are gathered from the industry’s use of the Interthinx FraudGUARD, a loan-level fraud detection tool.”Consumers should know that the mortgage industry is focused on making lending safer and fraud free, and taking dramatic steps to prevent bad actors from stealing identities and perpetrating mortgage fraud in all its forms,” said Mark Fleming, chief economist at First American Financial Corporation. “I don’t expect fraud risk to rise much in the year ahead because tougher underwriting standards have made it more difficult and more risky for bad actors to perpetrate fraud.”Fleming also adds that there has been a large decline since 2013 in employment and income related fraud due to the implementation of QM and the Ability-to-Repay rules, which is causing underwriters to pay much closer attention to employment and income statements in mortgage applications.Although the National Mortgage Fraud Risk Index is up from the last quarter, mortgage fraud risk has become more scattered across the country, proving that the culprits monitor and target economic and market changes for opportunities. California and Florida have shown ample opportunity to commit mortgage fraud due to the area having plenty of distressed properties and borrowers. The Northeast remains high at risk and is increasing in parts of New York. Energy dependent regions such as Texas, Oklahoma, Kansas, and the Dakotas demand careful monitoring as mortgage fraud risk rises.“Clearly, mortgage fraud is a crime of economic opportunism, the nature of which serves to remind our industry that state, MSA, and ZIP code trends can be more directly linked to cause and effect than the national trends,” said Jeff Moyer, president of Interthinx.center_img May 5, 2015 478 Views First American Financial Corporation Interthinx Mortgage Fraud Risk Report National Mortgage Fraud Risk Index 2015-05-05 Staff Writerlast_img read more
