OTTAWA – Housing starts in Canada hit their highest total in a decade in 2017, but are expected to slow this year, economists said Monday.BMO senior economist Robert Kavcic said the full-year tally of housing starts for 2017 came in at 221,000.“Canadian homebuilding activity had its best year in a decade in 2017, backed by underlying demographic support and strengthening labour markets in the country’s largest provinces,” he wrote in a report.However, he noted that this year the number of starts is expected to moderate closer to the 200,000 level, with a record number units under construction to start the year.Canada Mortgage and Housing Corp. said Tuesday the seasonally adjusted annual rate of housing starts for December of 2017 came in at 216,980 units, down from 251,675 units in November. The six-month moving average for December was 226,777 compared with 226,178 in November.The housing agency said the overall decline in the annual pace of housing starts in December came as the pace of urban starts fell 15.1 per cent to 198,132 units for the final month of last year.The pace of multi-unit urban starts slowed 22 per cent to 135,176, while the rate of single-detached urban starts increased by 4.7 per cent to 62,956 units.Rural starts were estimated at a seasonally adjusted annual rate of 18,848 units.The housing market has been identified as a key risk to the economy and been scrutinized by economists and policy-makers.Rising interest rates and more stringent lending rules are expected to weigh on the market this year.Royal Bank assistant chief economist Paul Ferley said the total number of starts for 2017 were up 11.4 per cent from 198,000 in 2016.“Looking ahead, our expectation is that recent tightening of mortgage lending, further official interest rate increases in both Canada and the U.S. and current poor affordability in a number of key markets will contribute to housing starts continuing to trend lower.“Our forecast assumes that starts will drop to 195,000 this year and 185,000 in 2019.”
according to voice of the economy, the data show that last year, only 1.6% of Chinese graduates to start their own businesses, an important reason is that it is difficult for entrepreneurs to find funds.

for Chinese entrepreneurs, incubator is one of the important carriers to support entrepreneurial innovation. As of the end of 2010, China has been included in the Torch Program incubator 894, in the incubation of up to more than 56 thousand and 300 enterprises. In addition to these funds to rely on government incubators, as well as innovative workshops, entrepreneurs and a number of entrepreneurial projects, entrepreneurial enterprises as the object of service of civil business organizations. Business mentor Lakala Network Technology Co., Ltd. chairman Sun Taoran believes that any incubator should first make money.

is different from the government led incubator, the civil commercial incubator can be more flexible to choose the project, to achieve the docking of capital and venture enterprises. At present the majority of business incubator with user pay model, is to provide payment services for entrepreneurs, including consulting, training camp, entrepreneurship competition, network shows, for example, in a period of entrepreneur training camp probably have to pay the cost of about 50 thousand, in addition there is investment in people and entrepreneurs to match the success of the commission.
it is worth noting that there are more and more media began to participate. However, the entrepreneur of the dark horse contest contest organizers Entrepreneur Magazine President Niu Wenwen said, the media do business incubator is also a lack of genes.
Niu Wenwen: media mode, short board team these problems still exist, the biggest challenge is that we now are the only media gene, we need to have the service of gene people, whether it is investment and financing services, we need more training or service of the people with us.
for the current variety of commercial incubators, as entrepreneurs, Wei Kaiyuan believes that some of them still unfair treatment of entrepreneurs.

By JOHN MARSHALLLIHUE, Hawaii (AP) — Hawaii has some of the most beautiful and memorable golf courses in the world. And the quiet island of Kauai may have the most picturesque courses on the islands — or anywhere else.From Poipu Bay in the south, where Tiger Woods once reigned, to Princeville and the rainforests of the north, Kauai has become a must-play for golfers visiting the islands.“I’m obviously biased, but the golf courses on Kauai are spectacular,” said Kevin Geanides, general manager of Timbers Kauai. “It’s a very special place.”Kauai has nine courses on an island of about 67,000 people. Mount Waialeale, at the center of the island, is one of the wettest places on earth, so the courses are always green and in superb condition.And the views.Because the island is small, the ocean is usually visible, even if it’s only in the distance, and some of the courses are set at the edges or cutting through rainforest.The weather is almost always perfect, rarely getting above the low 80s. And while it does rain, the storms usually move through quickly, so it’s just a matter of taking cover for a few minutes before swinging away again.Kauai also is at the northwest edge of the islands, so it’s remote enough that crowds are rarely a problem.“There’s such a diversity of courses for such a small island,” Poipu Bay Golf Course general manager Craig Sasada said. “You get some really nice golf courses and the traffic is light. If you like a golfing vacation, this is a great place to come.”Poipu Bay is the most well-known course on Kauai, thanks to a certain 15-time major winner. Poipu Bay hosted the PGA Grand Slam of Golf from 1994-2006, when Tigers Woods was at his prime and won there seven times.The course is on the “dry” side of Kauai — 33 to 37 inches of rain annually — so the chances of a rain delay are less than the courses to the north.Poipu Bay also has one of the most dramatic views anywhere at the par-5 16th hole, which follows the ocean along a massive cliff. It’s a popular spot even for non-golfers who hike up a heritage trail to take in the view.“Those holes 15, 16, 17 are beautiful to come in on,” Sasada said.So are the closing holes at the Hokuala Ocean Course, which has the islands’ longest continuous stretch of oceanfront holes.The course winds inland through mango and guava forests before turning toward the ocean on the back nine. The par-4 13th hole plays directly toward the Pacific, kicking off a stretch of four straight ocean holes. The par-3 14th plays over an ocean inlet, and the 16th, after a detour through the Timbers resort, has what’s essentially an island green with waves crashing all around.“The front nine has great views of the mountains and every hole is a little different,” Hokuala general manager Fran Roach said. “Two entirely different nines and you never get tired of playing it.” Read more about the picturesque views of the Princeville Makai Golf Club, the Jurassic Park vibes of Puakea Golf Course, the local flavor of Wailua Golf Course in Kapa, how to get to these enchanting places and where to stay on AFRO.com.Princeville Makai Golf Club has a similar vibe. The Makai Course is filled with dramatic views from high cliffs above the Pacific along Kauai’s north shore. It features six oceanfront holes, mountain views at every turn and creates a feeling of golf in paradise — which it is.The sunset tour at Makai is worth the trip north on its own.“We have beautiful views of the north shore of Kauai, which is arguably one of the most picturesque places in the world,” said Tom Freestone, head golf professional at Princeville Makai. “It is a spectacular golf experience.”Puakea Golf Course, not far from the Lihue Airport, looks like it was plucked off the set of Jurassic Park.That’s because it was.The inland course has views of the ocean, but the most spectacular sights are the jagged mountains to the south. Those were used as the background for the original Jurassic Park movie, so it’s easy to imagine dinosaurs running across the fairway while you hit an approach shot.“It’s a lot of fun to play and has some great views,” Puakea general manager Daniel Urwiler said.For some local flavor, Wailua Golf Course in Kapaa is a favorite among Kauai islanders. The opening hole is so close to the ocean that players sometimes get hit with mist from crashing waves, and mountains are in constant view in the background. The back nine features several elevation changes, with coconut and pine trees all around.___HOW TO GET THERE: Several major cities have direct flights to Lihue Airport, including Seattle, Portland, San Francisco and Los Angeles. Lihue also is a short flight from Honolulu and Kahului, Maui.WHERE TO STAY: Timbers Kauai Ocean Club and Residences, set at the south end of Hokuala, has spectacular ocean views and is a perfect place for large groups and families who want extra space and luxury vacation living. The sprawling beachfront Grand Hyatt Kauai Resort has spectacular ocean views, an unforgettable pool and is steps away from Poipu Bay Golf Course
