Data suggests drop in homeownership, but caution urged

Colorado suffered the biggest drop in its homeownership rate of any state last year, according to counts from the U.S. Census Bureau. But economists and demographers in the state aren’t buying it. The homeownership rate, a measure of how many households own the place where they live versus renting it, was 69.7% during the fourth quarter of 2022. It moved up to 70.2% in the second quarter of 2023 before plunging to 62.7% in the fourth quarter. No other state came close to matching that 7 percentage point decline last year.…

This botched migration shows why you need to deal with legacy tech

A recent botched transition to a new transport e-payment platform in Singapore might offer some answers. On Jan. 9, the Land Transport Authority (LTA) announced that two legacy stored value cards, EZ-Link and NETS FlashPay, would no longer be used to pay for public transport fares starting from June. The move is part of the country's transition to the SimplyGo system that LTA said had commenced in 2019. Apart from its use as payment for public bus and train fares, the contactless EZ-Link cards are also accepted as a

Colorado was sixth-worst in U.S. for job growth in 2023

Colorado, accustomed to having one of the strongest rates of job growth of any state most years, found itself in an unfamiliar position last year of having one of the weakest in the country.

Mississippi had the only decline in the U.S. at 0.7%, representing a net loss of 7,800 jobs last year. Rhode Island saw a 0.4% gain,…

Migration review – perky animation scripted by White Lotus creator Mike White | Animation in film

The latest release from the US animation studio Illumination (best known for all things Minions-related), Migration is a perky, inoffensive family crowdpleaser and the studio’s first original (nonfranchise, non-IP) title since Sing in 2016. But although it is technically a new story, this tale of a family of mallards who leave the safety of their small pond to see the world recycles some fairly well-worn themes and plot devices. Most notable are the similarities between this film and the recent Chicken Run sequel Dawn of…

Migration review – zany ducks-in-the-city adventure from White Lotus’ Mike White | Film

You could do worse at half-term than this new family animation from Illumination (the studio behind Sing and Minions). It’s a zany caper about a family of mallards; it’s not particularly original, with ideas and laughs that feel a little dusty, like they’ve been cobbled from bits and bobs knocking around the studio. But there are enough high jinks – as well as a seriously cute duckling – to keep it on the flight path.In New England, a daddy duck called Mack (voiced by Kumail Nanjiani) is risk-averse and overprotective of…
