Are ancient Greeks behind Chinas terracotta soldiers

first_imgIt is one of the most iconic symbols of Chinese craft and artistry: the 8,000 terracotta statues of soldiers that form the clay army that escorted China’s first emperor, Qin Shi Huang to his tomb. Unearthed by peasants in 1974, the life-sized human statues remained a mystery, as there was no tradition of such statues in China before the tomb was created. The first Emperor of the Qin dynasty died in 210BC; prior to that time, statues were simple figurines about 20cm in height.Archaeologists were trying for years to decipher how this shift in art was made possible and now they seem to agree on a new theory: that the Terracotta Warriors were inspired by the art of ancient Greece and that, more significantly, that ancient Greek artisans could have been training locals there in the Third Century BC.“We now have evidence that close contact existed between the First Emperor’s China and the West before the formal opening of the Silk Road”, said Senior Archaeologist Li Xiuzhen, from the Emperor Qin Shi Huang’s Mausoleum Site Museum, in an interview aired at a BBC special program. “This is far earlier than we formerly thought”. Professor Lukas Nickel from the University of Vienna supports this theory, stating that the Greek influence is clear. “I imagine that a Greek sculptor may have been at the site to train the locals,” he told the BBC, suggesting Greek statues must have arrived in Central Asia after Alexander the Great died in 323 B.C.A separate study shows European-specific mitochondrial DNA has been found at sites in China’s western-most Xinjiang Province, suggesting that Westerners may have settled, lived and died there before and during the time of the First Emperor.That is more than 1,500 years before European explorer Marco Polo arrived in China, in A.D. 1275.

Imperial Beach sexual assault suspect in custody

first_img KUSI Newsroom, Imperial Beach sexual assault suspect in custody Posted: September 12, 2019 SAN DIEGO (KUSI) – A suspect wanted for breaking into an apartment in Imperial Beach and allegedly sexually assaulting a woman while she slept was in custody Thursday evening.Alfred Ruiz-Sandoval, 24, is accused of sneaking in through a window to fondle a woman in her home early the morning of Sept. 3 in the 1300 block of Hemlock Avenue, near Tijuana Slough National Wildlife Refuge, according to Lt. Chad Boudreau of the San Diego County Sheriff’s Department.The victim called 911 about 5 a.m. to report the invasion and sexual battery and told investigators the suspect ran from her home when she awoke. Officials believe the perpetrator got into the home by removing a screen from her open bedroom window.Currently, Ruiz-Sandoval is in federal custody on unrelated charges, and sheriff’s detectives have obtained a separate arrest warrant, Boudreau said.

Northwest Pipe again fails to comply with Nasdaq rules

first_imgNorthwest Pipe Co. again faces being removed from the Nasdaq stock exchange if it doesn’t produce an updated plan to comply with exchange listing rules, the company said Thursday.In a filing with the U.S. Securities and Exchange Commission, the Vancouver-based manufacturer of steel pipe said it received a letter from Nasdaq officials saying the company is no longer in compliance with listing rules because it failed to file its 2011 annual financial report in a timely manner.That’s on top of the company’s failure to file its third-quarter financial report for 2011. For that infraction, the company said it received a letter from Nasdaq saying it needed to submit a plan to comply with the exchange’s listing rules.The company said it submitted a plan to Nasdaq on Jan. 17, and that Nasdaq subsequently gave the company until April 16 to file the late third-quarter financial data.The company said Thursday Nasdaq is now requiring it to update its plan to regain compliance no later than April 2. Any additional time Nasdaq grants the company to achieve compliance will be limited to a maximum of 180 days from its initial failure to file last year’s third-quarter report — or until May 14, the company said in its SEC filing.last_img read more

Steve Morris

first_imgOne of the few publishers to buck the trend and launch print this year—48-page Optometry Times in March of 2009—EVP Steve Morris is quick to downplay the role of print.“The reality is that we aren’t really excited about opening more print publications in this environment. Our strategy has clearly moved to digital with the launch of [online hub] modernmedicine.com.” The decision to launch was mostly due to its anticipated profitable gains “in print alone” and an “acceleration of event and online investments from our clients.”Morris and his team have done what so many have not in the current climate; taken a step back and listened to the market demands of its niche audience. After joining Advanstar in 2004 as a vice president of market development, he successfully reorganized this group into a more customer-focused and efficient sales organization, which led to expanded growth opportunities and increased revenue before moving to his current group in 2005.In the ophthalmology market, Advanstar sees 50 percent of its revenue from print and 50 percent from digital and events. Due to the similarity of its eye markets, Optometry Times called on the readership of Ophthalmology Times for a 33,000-controlled circ magazine. Since joining the company in 2004, Morris’ team has spearheaded major initiatives including the launch of modernmedicine.com, a portal and source for physicians, as well as provide a central content structure.An $8 million-plus franchise in 2008, Morris recognizes the importance of appealing to this total “eye” category through its preferred medium. “It was easy to make the decision to tap into optometry in print, the same as we are doing in events and digital. The optometry market is 33 percent larger in print than ophthalmology,” he says. “We are looking to grow that [$8 million] total over 15 percent this year in the face of a challenging market with this launch as a critical element of differentiation.”VITAL STATS: Advanstar is looking to grow its $8 million eye franchise over 15 percent in 2009.last_img read more

Mueller report update What the special counsel said and how to read

first_imgIt’s been over a month since special counsel Robert Mueller’s report on the investigation into Russian interference in the 2016 election became available to the public, with a fair number of redactions. But today marks the first time Mueller spoke out on the report in a 10-minute public statement to explain why he won’t further testify to Congress on the report’s contents.”The report is my testimony,” said Mueller, a former FBI director. “I would not provide information beyond that which is already public in any appearance before Congress.”Mueller also announced his resignation from the Department of Justice and said the special counsel’s office is closing now that its investigative work is done.The 448-page report, available as a PDF for download from the Justice Department’s website, is the culmination of a high-profile, nearly two-year investigation that captured the attention of Americans and interested onlookers abroad. Beyond posing questions about the relationship between Russia and President Donald Trump’s campaign and whether they worked together to secure his victory, it also shined a light on how the US election system was vulnerable to manipulation from outside forces. The investigation came to an end on March 22 when special counsel Mueller delivered his report to US Attorney General William Barr.The bottom line: There’s no question Russia interfered with the 2016 presidential election and that its attacks on the US “deserves the attention of every American,” Mueller said Wednesday.Two days after receiving the report in late March, Barr sent a four-page summary to Congress with his conclusion the Trump campaign didn’t conspire with Russia on the interference and that Trump didn’t obstruct justice. On April 18, the Justice Department livestreamed a press conference — about an hour before the release of the redacted report — in which Barr stated that no conspiracy was found between the Russians trying to undermine the election and any Americans, including members of the Trump campaign.  But Barr’s summary and press conference has set off its own controversy, with Democrats and other critics of saying Barr misrepresented the findings and left the public confused.  More on the Mueller report Justice Department indicts 12 Russian cyberspies suspected… Now playing: Watch this: In the past two months, lawmakers have weighed in, with Democrats saying Barr showed bias toward Trump and Republicans saying the public release of the redacted report was a positive thing. Critics note details in the report paint Trump in a negative light. Although Mueller’s investigation didn’t establish conspiracy on the part of the president, it made no definitive determination on obstruction of justice. Barr’s March 24 letter quotes the Mueller report as saying that “while this report does not conclude that the President committed a crime, it also does not exonerate him” on the matter of obstruction. Barr has opted not pursue an investigation into the questions surrounding obstruction.The law doesn’t require the DOJ to release a report on a special counsel investigation. But the president indicated on March 20 he wanted the report released and said, “Let people see it.” Politicians from both major parties continue to insist that the full report, with a minimum of redactions, be released.What we know about the redactionsAt his April 18 press conference about the release of the Mueller report, Barr said there are “limited redactions” in the version of the report released to Congress and the public and that they are “clearly labeled.” He went on to explain that there are four categories of redactions in the report:Grand jury materialInformation that would disclose sensitive sourcesInformation that would impair other casesInformation that would implicate the privacy or reputation of third partiesHe also said that no redactions or recommendations for redactions were made by people outside the Justice Department and no redactions were made based on the president’s executive privilege. Top Democrats in Congress have called for the release of the Mueller report in its entirety. In a joint statement on March 24, Speaker of the House Nancy Pelosi and Senate Democratic Leader Charles Schumer said Barr isn’t a neutral observer and that his letter “raises as many questions as it answers.”On May 1, Barr appeared before the Senate Judiciary Committee to answer questions about the Mueller report, and he defended his March 24 summary and his overall assessment of the investigation. The day before the hearing, it was revealed that Mueller had written a letter to Barr saying, in part, that the attorney general’s summary “did not fully capture the context, nature and substance of this Office’s work and conclusions.”In the meantime, what Mueller found during his 675-day investigation could lead to a widening of the partisan divide in the US, with Trump supporters likely to view the final results of the Mueller probe as exonerating the president, while his detractors see the report’s contents and existing indictments as ample proof of wrongdoing.How to read the Mueller Report for freeYou can access Mueller’s report at the Department of Justice website. Since it’s in PDF format, you can download the file to your device for offline viewing or transfer it to another device like a phone, tablet or e-reader.You can also read the 448-page report directly here: Meanwhile, six Trump associates have been accused of crimes that include financial malfeasance and lying to investigators, and five of them have already been convicted or pleaded guilty. The most prominent are Paul Manafort, former chairman of the Trump 2016 campaign; Michael Cohen, a former Trump lawyer; and Michael Flynn, Trump’s former national security adviser. Mueller also has indicted longtime Trump political adviser Roger Stone over his alleged ties to WikiLeaks during the 2016 campaign. Why Trump is unlikely to be impeached With Trump himself unlikely to be indicted or subpoenaed and the Senate controlled by Republications, making it unlikely they would uphold a vote to impeach, impeachment had been deemed unlikely. Even before Barr’s summary to Congress, that option became even more unlikely when Pelosi stated in early March that she doesn’t support impeachment, saying that unless there’s overwhelming evidence, impeachment would become too partisan and divisive to make it worth dominating the agenda of Congress. But after Mueller’s May 29 press briefing, more than three dozen Democrats — and one Republican — have called for impeachment proceedings in the House of Representatives to begin.  Congressional investigations will continue Even without an impeachment effort, we will see more investigations. The House Intelligence Committee announced in February it was widening its probe into Russian interference in the 2016 US election. As CBS News reported, the committee’s chairman, Adam Schiff, a California Democrat, pointed out that a new addition to the five lines of inquiry would be “[w]hether any foreign actor has sought to compromise or holds leverage, financial or otherwise, over Donald Trump, his family, his business, or his associates.” Separately, the House Judiciary Committee has launched an investigation into whether Trump obstructed justice by firing former FBI Director James Comey.Schiff has also pushed for Mueller to appear before the House Intelligence Committee to testify about the investigation: What’s the backstory here?Mueller’s investigation has led to indictments of six of Trump’s advisers, along with 26 Russian nationals, including some on charges of hacking. Indictments against 12 of the Russians were tied to malware that infected the servers of the Democratic National Committee during the 2016 election campaign. The compromised servers enabled the theft of thousands of emails that were subsequently published by WikiLeaks. No new indictments were expected, according to CBS News. And long-running Justice Department policy means that it’s unlikely a sitting president would be indicted. In fact, Mueller specifically cited the department’s policy as the reason his office couldn’t even consider charging Trump with a crime.  The president wasted no time responding to Barr’s initial summary on March 24, tweeting: “No Collusion, No Obstruction, Complete and Total EXONERATION.” He has repeated that statement multiple times since then, though Mueller’s remarks on May 29 call into question the president’s summation of the report since Mueller’s team opted not to exonerate the president on possible obstruction charges. Said Mueller, “If we had had confidence that the president clearly did not commit a crime, we would have said so.”  In response, Trump criticized Mueller this week as a “never Trumper.” Originally published March 24.

They include Pelosi, the Democratic leader of the House of Representatives, and Sen. Marco Rubio, a Republican from Florida.The Justice Department worked with Mueller’s team to redact certain information from the public version of the report. During his Senate confirmation hearings in January, Barr told senators he wanted to release as much of the report as possible, “consistent with the law,” as reported by CBS News. Barr said he would be clear about the redactions, according to The New York Times. Who’s been indicted so far As detailed by The New York Times, 32 people have been charged with crimes by Mueller, including 26 Russian nationals who are unlikely to stand trial. Those indictments include charges against 12 Russian hackers alleged to have been behind cyberattacks in 2016 against the Democratic National Committee and against 13 Russians for spreading disinformation on social media, as well as the propaganda efforts’ chief accountant. last_img read more

Watch the 2020 Chevy Corvettes trick GPS frontlift tech in action

first_img Sports Cars Coupes Hatchbacks Auto Tech Chevrolet This sounds like simple, smart bundling of two existing technologies — GPS and nose lift — to ultimately create a much more user-friendly product. Improbably enough, it’s safe to say this front lift tech is yet another reason why we’re incredibly eager to drive this new mid-engined C8 Corvette. We just hope the feature isn’t terribly expensive, or annoyingly bundled into expensive option packages on higher trims. 2020 Chevrolet Corvette blends the new and the familiar Will it scrape? Not by the high-tech hairs of its chinny chin chin. Chevrolet Of all the high-performance features on supercars and sports cars, nose-lift mechanisms are among our very favorite, and the new 2020 Chevrolet Corvette is promising a game-changing one. Admittedly, that may sound like a strange thing to get excited about in a high-powered sports car. However, this traditionally simple technology, which temporarily raises the front end of low-riding vehicles to clear objects like speed bumps and driveway aprons, can be a lifesaver (or at least the savior of front splitters, oil pans and embarrassing scraping noises). Simply put, a nose-lift feature makes living with a low-slung sports car like this sub-$60,000 Corvette much easier on a daily basis.In the mid-engined 2020 C8 Corvette Stingray’s case, the hydraulic front-lift feature is activated by pushing a switch on the center console adjacent to the gearshift buttons.So what makes the new C8 Corvette’s nose lift so different? In a word, GPS. The Corvette’s optional new front-lift mechanism, which raises the pointy end of the Vette by 1.6 inches in under 3 seconds, can be programmed to remember the GPS locations of up to 1,000 different obstacles, so it can automatically stand the chassis up on its tip-toes when approaching them. screen-shot-2019-07-19-at-10-03-51-amThe C8 will offer a hydraulics-based front-end suspension lift. Chevrolet Once an obstacle is programmed in, all you as the driver have to do is slow down as you approach them — the system works at speeds of up to 24 mph. That means if you live in a subdivision that’s littered with speed bumps or your driveway is a ski slope (like mine!), this Corvette has you covered.

Credit: ESA/Hubble & NASA Citation: Dozens of new variable stars found in a dense globular cluster (2016, June 1) retrieved 18 August 2019 from https://phys.org/news/2016-06-dozens-variable-stars-dense-globular.html Astronomers discover two new stars in a distant open cluster Journal information: arXiv More information: Many new variable stars discovered in the core of the globular cluster NGC 6715 (M54) with EMCCD observations arXiv:1605.06141 [astro-ph.SR] arxiv.org/abs/1605.06141AbstractWe show the benefits of using Electron-Multiplying CCDs and the shift-and-add technique as a tool to minimise the effects of the atmospheric turbulence such as blending between stars in crowded fields and to avoid saturated stars in the fields observed. We intend to complete, or improve, the census of the variable star population in globular cluster NGC~6715. Our aim is to obtain high-precision time-series photometry of the very crowded central region of this stellar system via the collection of better angular resolution images than has been previously achieved with conventional CCDs on ground-based telescopes. Observations were carried out using the Danish 1.54-m Telescope at the ESO La Silla observatory in Chile. The telescope is equipped with an Electron-Multiplying CCD that allowed to obtain short-exposure-time images (ten images per second) that were stacked using the shift-and-add technique to produce the normal-exposure-time images (minutes). The high precision photometry was performed via difference image analysis employing the DanDIA pipeline. We attempted automatic detection of variable stars in the field. We statistically analysed the light curves of 1405 stars in the crowded central region of NGC~6715 to automatically identify the variable stars present in this cluster. We found light curves for 17 previously known variable stars near the edges of our reference image (16 RR Lyrae and 1 semi-regular) and we discovered 67 new variables (30 RR Lyrae, 21 long-period irregular, 3 semi-regular, 1 W Virginis, 1 eclipsing binary, and 11 unclassified). Photometric measurements for these stars are available in electronic form through the Strasbourg Astronomical Data Centre. (Phys.org)—Located some 87,000 light years away, a dense globular cluster named Messier 54 (also known as NGC 6715) is a real gold mine for astronomers. Recently, an international team has discovered dozens of new variable stars in this cluster, improving the stellar census of Messier 54. The findings were presented in a paper published online on May 23 on the arXiv pre-print server.center_img The team, led by Roberto Figuera Jaimes of the European Southern Observatory (ESO), made use of the Danish 1.54 meter Telescope at ESO’s La Silla observatory in Chile in order to obtain high-precision photometry of the very crowded central region of Messier 54. They have analyzed the light curves of 1,405 stars in this stellar system. Their observations were highly successful, resulting in the discovery 67 new variable stars.”A total of 1,405 stars in the field covered by the reference image were statistically studied for variable star detection. (…) We discovered 67 new variable stars, which consist of 30 RR Lyrae, 21 long-period irregular, three semi-regular, one W Virginis, one eclipsing binary, and 11 unclassified stars,” the researchers wrote in the paper.RR Lyrae variables are pulsating horizontal branch stars of spectral class A or F, with a mass of around 0.5 solar masses. They are used as standard candles to measure extragalactic distances. Among the group of 30 newly detected stars of this class, the team was able to discern that 17 of them are pulsating in the fundamental mode, eight are pulsating in the first overtone, one is a double-mode pulsator and four remain with an uncertain subtype. The periods of the newly found stars in the RR Lyrae group range from 0.28 to 0.76 days with amplitudes between 0.06 and 1.69 mag.However, according to Jaimes and his colleagues, the most intriguing addition to the stellar catalog of Messier 54 is the W Virginis variable. The scientists noted that this star’s variation does not follow the pattern found for the other variable stars studied and classified in their work. They found a very well phased light curve with a period of about 14.8 days and an amplitude of 0.71 mag.”This is the only bright variable star on the blue side of the color-magnitude diagram far away from the red giant branch,” the paper reads.The scientists revealed that the amplitudes of 21 long-period irregular variables range from 0.05 to 0.46 mag, however they found no clear periods for these stars. According to the research, the amplitudes of the three semi-regular stars range from 0.04 to 0.45 mag and their periods span between 20 and 150 days. The eclipsing binary’s period was found to be approximately 0.2 days, while the amplitude of the deeper eclipse is of the order of 0.8 mag and the amplitude of the secondary eclipse equals 0.5 mag.The researchers concluded that their findings, especially regarding detecting new RR Lyrae variables, confirm that Messier 54 is of intermediate Oosterhoff type. The so-called ‘Oosterhoff groups’ are two populations of globular clusters, nearly as old as the universe itself, that have weak lines of metallic elements, though they differ in their metal abundances.

Costa Rica becoming a more accessible and inclusive tourist destination

first_imgSemanario Universidad LogoThis story was originally published by Semanario Universidad on June 18, 2019. It was translated with permission by The Tico Times. Read the original report here. Facebook Comments Last weekend, Costa Rica presented its new model of inclusive and accessible social tourism, with activities aimed at older adults, youth, children, adolescents and people with disabilities.The Tourism Board’s first Social Integrity Program was carried out in La Fortuna, San Carlos, where about 120 tourists were the first to participate in the experience. Among them were Yurusti High School students, guides and scouts, seniors, and a group of guests with disabilities, who all enjoyed a series of adventure activities.All were transported by a chapulín (tractor) — which had a special cart with seats — to a village near the indigenous Maleku community.Most of the participants enjoyed this type of recreation for the first time, said Alberto López, general manager of the Costa Rican Tourism Board (ICT).Ricardo Ureña, coordinator of the ICT Social Tourism program, said Costa Rica is the first Central American country to implement more inclusive tourism.“There are other countries like Honduras that intend to implement this type of tourism but still do not do it solidly,” he said. “That is why one of the most important elements is to attract them to the agreement of the International Social Tourism Organization (ILOS) and the Secretariat of Central American Tourism Integration (SITCA).” The objective of the program is to urge that Costa Rican companies and organizations, whether tourist-focused or not, manage spaces within their operations that facilitate recreational activities aimed at these populations.Ureña highlighted that the country was for the first time the headquarters of the Meeting of the Americas of Social Tourism — held from June 12 to 15 — which brought together more than 14 countries of the American continents focused on publicizing good practices of solidarity and sustainable tourism. During this activity, 23 Costa Rican companies obtained their “seal of social tourism.” Tourism for all peopleThe activities carried out in La Fortuna were managed by the Arenal Chamber of Commerce and Tourism, Anywhere Costa Rica and Arenal Mundo Aventura, companies that are part of the accreditation process carried out by the Social Tourism Program through the ICT.Tadeo Morales, vice president of the Arenal Chamber of Commerce and Tourism, expressed his satisfaction that the destination has been selected to start the social tourism plan.“We are a tourist center visited by more than one million tourists per year and endowed with excellent connectivity,” he said. “We have more than 60 parks and attractions, as well as 21 natural attractions, and we represent 10 communities that live directly from tourism. For these reasons, we have to include social tourism in our ecosystem of experiences in order to reach all populations.” The Minister of Tourism, María Amalia Revelo, said that the Social Tourism Program is possible thanks to private initiatives that seek to improve the quality of life of the Costa Rican population.Both the minister and the Second Vice President of Costa Rica, Marvin Rodríguez Cordero, stressed that promoting this model of tourism management makes it possible to fulfill the objectives of sustainable development and to “leave no one behind,” according to the vice president.A more human Costa RicaSeveral representatives of other countries that already implement social tourism, such as Chile, Brazil and Mexico, applauded Costa Rica’s commitment.Francisca Retamal, from the National Tourism Service of Chile, said Costa Rica has enormous potential. “The work they are doing, for example in Arenal Mundo Aventura, shows that they have made an integration with the people who live in the area, who have built their own hotels, their lodgings, and this is an opportunity for Costa Rica and for those of us who come here from abroad,” she said.María Paz Lagos, adviser of Sernatur, projected successes for Costa Rica in this model for “the will of the entrepreneurs, the citizens and the public policy sector.” “What I liked the most about the country are the people,” Lagos said. “I think Costa Ricans are good people, generous, kind, with a quality customer service system, concerned about tourists.“The landscapes are wonderful, but the important thing is the human warmth that Costa Rica has.” Related posts:Health Ministry orders improvements at Manuel Antonio National Park Construction of Discovery Costa Rica set to begin in 2018 Manuel Antonio National Park administration moving to comply with Health Ministry orders Tourism entrepreneurs oppose license, royalty payments to canopy patent holderlast_img read more

DocMagic Forms Alliance With World Wide Notary

first_imgDocMagic Forms Alliance With World Wide Notary DogMagic eNotary eSign WWN 2015-03-10 Samantha Guzman March 10, 2015 485 Views DocMagic, Inc., a provider of fully-compliant loan document preparation, compliance, eSign, and eDelivery solutions, announced today that it formed an exclusive strategic alliance with World Wide Notary, Inc. (WWN), a pioneering developer of electronic notarization services. The partnership integrates WWN’s patent pending DigaSign eNotary technology into DocMagic’s eServices platform to deliver a fully paperless eClosing solution.The solution allows borrowers, lenders, settlement agents and mobile notaries to eSign documents, and eNotarize, both online and offline. As a result, the entire closing process is streamlined, paper is eliminated, costs are reduced and compliance is ensured.“The addition of WWN’s advanced eNotary capability adds significant value to our platform by keeping mortgage closing documents 100 percent paperless from eDisclosure to eClosing,” said Dominic Iannitti, president and CEO of DocMagic. “DocMagic has systematically been putting the necessary pieces in place to transform the company into a true end-to-end eServices solutions provider. Our exclusive arrangement with WWN incorporates a critical component: compliant eNotarizations. Without compliant eNotary capability, a fully paperless eClosing would be impossible to achieve.”WWN is one of the leading eNotarization companies and has been at the forefront of educating and lobbying the state to accept eNotaries in a variety of different industries. The company’s technology has been certified by multiple secretaries of state under the National Association of Secretaries of State (NASS) eNotary standards; and, in all states that have approved the Uniform Electronic Transactions Act (UETA).“DocMagic has systematically been putting the necessary pieces in place to transform the company into a true end-to-end eServices solutions provider,” Iannitti said. “Our exclusive arrangement with WWN incorporates a critical component: compliant eNotarizations. Without compliant eNotary capability, a fully paperless eClosing would be impossible to achieve.”A number of efficiencies accompany WWN’s DigaSign eNotary technology that includes dramatically speeding up the notary process on mortgage documents, with Internet connection or without, ensuring strict compliance adherence is met, establishing detailed audit trails, reducing errors, slashing processing costs, reducing risk, and enhancing the overall borrower closing experience. The solution centralizes and streamlines the entire eNotarization process.“DocMagic is the leading loan document preparation software company in the mortgage industry and an ideal partner to marry our technologies,” CEO of WWN, Bob Rice said. “To date, most eClosings have just been hybrids, meaning: a majority of the lender documents could be eSigned, but those that require a notaries’ signature and seal had to be printed to paper and ink signed. Together, our technologies eliminate that hard stop in the process and allow borrowers to effortlessly eSign mortgage documents, now including those that require the presence of a notary.”Under the agreement, DocMagic has exclusive rights to utilize WWN’s eNotary platform within the mortgage industry for an extended period of time. The two companies have already begun introducing the service to clients.center_img Share in Headlines, Technologylast_img read more
