Today’s companies are driven by creativity and innovation and are fostered by client success. DS News spoke to James Vinci, VP and Chief Technology Officer at Equator, about what mortgage professionals can learn from other industries and what technology trends are having the most impact today.Vinci was previously the president and enterprise architect at RedWire IT, SVP of Professional Services at Lydian Technology Group, and SVP of Professional Services at WellFound Decade Corp. He is a graduate of Columbia University.Q: Tell us about your role, and what is the  focus for the year?A: I’m the VP and Chief Technology Officer of Equator, which is a software provider to the default mortgage servicing industry. The platform supports four of the five largest servicers in the country, the largest GSE, and the transaction and processing of over 40 percent of the REO and short sale volume in the country. Equator’s ecosystem houses over 65,000 real estate agents and 30,000 vendors, which supported the selling of more than 100,000 properties valued at $16 billion last year. It’s a significant enterprise software platform and, because it holds quite a bit of share, it has great insight into the loss mitigation and default portions of the servicing industry.Q: What market insights and data do you believe have become the most valuable to the REO market?A: In the REO market, determining the proper disposition strategy (as-is versus renovate, sale versus rental, traditional versus auction) and efficiently executing on that strategy is critical. To address this, there has been an increasing use of analytics and machine learning to match the right assets to the right strategy by local market. Further, these advanced analytics are helping optimize the best real estate agents and REO vendors to execute these strategies. Top servicers are focused more than ever on one of two very different strategies—either efficiently marketing their asset to quickly sell it or upgrading it and marketing it as a long-term rental.Advanced analytics are also helping servicers better manage agent networks through agent matching technology, which provides servicers with recommended agent selection options. This matching process is intended to help a servicer sell an REO in less time than today’s process. Q: How should servicers use data to be more operationally efficient? What about agents?A: I am a strong believer in the adage that “time is money.” It is important for servicers to use a platform that’s designed to automate and optimize their processes, hence reducing their overall costs. Servicers should also consider platforms with robust tracking and logging data that enhances compliance and audit capabilities but also allows servicers to monitor their overall disposition efficiency. For agents, it’s increasingly important to stay close to their local market’s REO trends and understand how to compete for the servicer leads and listings. This means having access to local market REO intelligence.Q: What advice can you provide smaller businesses that may have limited financial resources to access advanced technology? Are there other solutions?A: As workflow and business process management technologies continue to mature, more and more options become available. Many of these options are vertical domain-independent while other custom solutions involve significant implementation cycles with sizable dependencies on technology staff. In our vertical domain, due to the compliance, regulatory and overall cost pressures, we are a strong believer that outsourcing to a technology vendor that specializes not only in workflow but default mortgage servicing is critical, especially for smaller servicers and hedge funds. Q: How do you perfect compliance without bringing costs down? What are regulatory processes or products companies are using to help clients become more compliant?A: Compliance is really about following the rules and guidelines every single time, on every single asset. Workflow technology and automation are cost-effective approaches to accomplish this. Technological innovation has made great strides in the mortgage industry as companies are broadening their services, increasing accessibility and delivering high levels of convenience and efficiency. Automation is a key part of that by serving customers how they want to be served, when they want to be served and with the consistent quality that is required in today’s stringent compliance environment.

Vertical mixing at intermediate depths in the Arctic boundary current

first_imgMicrostructure and hydrographic observations, during September 2007 in the boundary current on the East Siberian continental slope, document upper ocean stratification and along-stream water mass changes. A thin warm surface layer overrides a shallow halocline characterized by a ~40-m thick temperature minimum layer beginning at ~30 m depth. Below the halocline, well-defined thermohaline diffusive staircases extended downwards to warm Atlantic Water intrusions found at 200-800 m depth. Observed turbulent eddy kinetic energy dissipations are extremely low (epsilon <10^-6 W m^-3), such that double diffusive convection dominates the vertical mixing in the upper-ocean. The diffusive convection heat fluxes F^dc_H ~1 W m^-2, are an order of magnitude too small to account for the observed along-stream cooling of the boundary current. Our results implicate circulation patterns and the influence ofshelf waters in the evolution of the boundary current waters.last_img read more

Rapid COVID-19 test to be trialled on Oxford students

first_imgA rapid COVID-19 test that provides results within 30 minutes is being tested on student volunteers at Merton College and St. Hilda’s, as well as Durham University.  Professor Irene Tracy, Warden at Merton College, said in an email to students: “We believe this project will be an important contribution to national and international efforts to defeat the current pandemic and its wider consequences. The learnings will also be important in preparedness for future epidemics and pandemics.” Students who receive a positive Lateral Flow Test result will be required to take the standard RT-PCR (reference test polymerase chain reaction) test via the NHS or Oxford University’s Early Alert Service, and self-isolate as necessary. Students will be asked to self-administer the LFIAs each week. Students have been provided with an explanatory video, will be offered an opportunity to ask researchers questions and are free to withdraw without giving any reason at any time. If they are unable or would not like to self-administer the test, students will be asked to attend a screening clinic “where the FACTS team will conduct the test and record the results”, explains the Participant Information Sheet. The Lateral Flow Immunoassay Test (LFIA) requires individuals to take a swab of their nose and throat and insert it into a tube of liquid for a short time, with a result provided after 20 to 30 minutes. They are aimed at potentially supplementing, rather than replacing, the standard use of RT-PCR (reference test polymerase chain reaction) tests. The pilot study is being organised by researchers at the University of Oxford’s Nuffield Department of Primary Care Health Sciences, in partnership with the Department of Health and Public Health England. It is receiving funding internally from the University. LFTs have been validated and undergone clinical testing. All participation in the study by students is voluntary. The study has been also been approved by the University Research Ethics Committee, One student who had decided to take part explained why they got involved: “I wanted to do my bit, and I thought that it was incredible that I could be a part of something like this. It was a no-brainer, especially considering I’ve got vulnerable family members at home and I want to do what I can to make the world a little bit safer for them again.” Oxford University have said that “it is hoped it [the LFIA test] will help identify those most at risk of spreading COVID-19 (those who are infectious, but not aware of this) and enable them to alter their behaviour accordingly, thereby breaking the chains of transmission and reducing the infection rate.” As well as this, students will be asked to track their symptoms daily using the study’s app, and to conduct some five-minute online surveys on “the acceptability of the testing strategy”. The Participation Information Sheet explains that “a subset of participants [will also be asked] to take part in an interview to explore their experience and views of testing, what worked, and what could be done better.” The Feasibility and Acceptability of community COVID-19 rapid Testing Strategies (FACTS) study will assess the feasibility of the self-administered Lateral Flow Test in tracking COVID-19 in pre-symptomatic and asymptomatic individuals. This is part of the government’s “Operation Moonshot”, aiming for regular mass testing to reduce the spread of the virus.  The Pro-Vice Chancellor said that if the study proves effective, they aim to extend it across the whole University.last_img read more

Mayor’s Message: Jan. 15

first_imgDear Friends,Council President Bobby Barr, senior staff members and I met virtually this afternoon with U.S. Rep. Jeff Van Drew to learn more about a proposed wind energy farm in federal waters in the Atlantic Ocean about 15 miles off the coast of southern New Jersey.The city team continues to do its due diligence by working with federal and state regulators, the wind energy company Ørsted, and other experts to get all the facts and determine our options.I will continue to communicate with all local stakeholders as the process moves forward. The only piece of this proposed project Ocean City could control would be an easement from a coastal town to bring transmission lines to the mainland.While Ørsted could take the transmission line elsewhere, this could be a major source of funding for improvement projects in the city.I want to encourage you all to watch our annual Dr. Martin Luther King Jr. celebration, which will be made available for viewing on www.ocnj.us and OCTV-97 starting at 1 p.m. Monday (Jan. 18).The event was pre-recorded this year, but as always, one of the highlights will be the recitation of Dr. King’s “I Have a Dream” speech by the Rev. Gregory Johnson.We also will recognize the volunteerism of three citizens with our Martin Luther King Community Services Awards. Kathy Thompson, Jennifer Bowman and Mike Morrissey have always given much of their time and energy to help others in our community, and each was especially important in this year when the pandemic changed our lives.Monday’s presentation will include much more on each of these exemplary citizens.It also will include the recognition of seventh-graders Joseph Heng and Gabrielle Henry and eighth-graders Danna Ramirez and Catie Brooks, who will read their winning essays on the legacy of Dr. King.The video will remain available on-demand at www.ocnj.us and it will be rebroadcast on OCTV-97 at 9 p.m. Jan. 19, 7 p.m. Jan. 20, 12 p.m. Jan. 21 and 10 a.m. Jan. 23.At the next meeting on Jan. 28, City Council will consider a proposal to begin flood mitigation efforts on West 17th Street.The first steps will include studying the effects of groundwater on flooding with the use of piezometers and marking the elevations of all bulkheads.This work will help the city remain on track to coordinate its flood relief efforts with a utility company project to replace sewer mains and add a pumping station.We also have been able to address some of the issues raised by citizens at our flood mitigation town hall meeting. The standing water around 28th Street and Wesley Avenue was re-routed from an ineffective French drain into the main storm drainage system.Perforated pipe on 22nd Street between West Avenue and Haven Avenue was replaced with a new solid underground pipeline, eliminating the constant water in the gutter.A temporary pump was placed at 25th Street and Haven Avenue and has already proven effective in reducing the severity of flooding at that location.Based on the success of that experiment, a permanent solution is being designed to move the water to the bay.The county’s wastewater main replacement on Bay Avenue is nearing completion.But one of the final phases will include detours of southbound traffic on Bay Avenue from Eighth Street to Ninth Street. Drivers leaving the island from the north end should plan to use West Avenue next week.After the pipeline work is complete, the roadway will be temporarily restored, and final paving will take place in the spring.COVID-19 vaccinations are now open to all 65-and-overs and people ages 16 to 64 with medical conditions that increase the risk for severe COVID-19.Please visit www.ocnj.us/covid19 to learn more about how to register to receive the vaccine. Appointments remain limited, but more vaccine is expected to be delivered in the coming weeks, so it’s important to be registered.I hope you all have a great weekend.Warm regards,Mayor Jay A.
