would cut between 45000 and 50000 jobs as part of an ongoing restructuring program Speaking to analysts during a conference call Monday Whitman said a separation was possible today because of the innovation H-P has invested in and the new leadership team that has been put in place the past few years "Three years ago this company was in a fairly difficult position and we needed to rebuild and we needed to do that as one H-P" she said Hewlett-Packards decision comes less than a week since eBay unveiled a plan to separate its namesake company and its PayPal business creating two independent publicly-traded companies next year a separation that activist investor Carl Icahn had long called for Investors and company analysts have called for a similar move at Hewlett-Packard arguing that the company could sell its PC business and focus instead on the more profitable business of selling computer servers networking and data storage to corporations The Journal notes that Hewlett-Packard and its investors had also considered such a move The company is one of the oldest big technology companies and discussions have taken place to determine how to keep up with younger more nimble technology

appeared on Fortunecom Contact us at [email protected] By Terray Sylvester PAHOA Hawaii (Reuters) – Hawaii authorities scrambled to move tens of thousands of gallons of highly flammable chemicals from the path of lava on Thursday and the state’s governor warned mass evacuations might be needed as the Kilauea volcano’s eruption became more violent Geologists have warned that Kilauea may be entering a phase of explosive eruptions the likes of which Hawaii has not seen in nearly a century that could hurl "ballistic blocks" and dust towns with volcanic ash and smog After a new fissure opened on Wednesday a half mile (08 km)from a geothermal power plant Hawaii Governor David Ige set up a task force to remove pentane fluid used in the plant’s turbines If the chemical ignites the resulting explosion could create a blast radius of up to 1 mile (16 km) Ige said The Puna Geothermal Venture plant sits at the edge of the Leilani Estates residential area on Hawaii’s Big Island where lava from 15 volcanic fissures has so far destroyed 36 structures most of them homes and forced the evacuation of about 2000 residents A new area just to the west of the residential area was evacuated on Wednesday after toxic clouds of sulphur dioxide started shooting up through cracks in a road County of Hawaii Civil Defense reported "As more fissures open and toxic gas exposure increases the potential of a larger scale evacuation increases" Ige said in a tweet on Wednesday evening "A mass evacuation of the lower Puna District would be beyond current county and state capabilities and would quickly overwhelm our collective resources" Ige tweeted saying in a separate post he had requested federal disaster assistance SURFING IN THE HAZE The lower part of the Puna District of which Leilani Gardens is a part covers dozens of square miles and is home to many thousands of residents It has the highest possible hazard rating for lava flows according to the US Geological Survey A large explosion in Kilauea sent up a column of ash on Wednesday that blew to the south-southwest the USGS said Surfers bobbing in the ocean off Kona on the west side of the island complained of volcanic smog known as vog that could be seen in a haze over the coast "Does that hat protect against vog" one surfer was heard quipping to another about the floppy sun hat he was wearing In the village of Pahoa about 24 miles (39 km) from Kilauea school closures have added to a sense of disarray and ramped up stress levels said gallery owner Amedeo Markoff 49 "It’s like our version of a snow day – a lava day" joked Markoff as his 10-year-old son Kai sat next to him in their business Magma is draining out of the volcano’s sinking lava pool and flowing underground tens of miles eastward before

currently allows for videotaped testimony in these cases,Lokniti-ABP News, and fielded former Union minister Satpal Maharaj instead." says Jodi Tollefson president of Fargo-Moorhead Area Association of RealtorsOn the contrary the realtor is an advocate"They’re working for the client to get the highest price for the seller or if they’re representing the buyer the best opportunity for that buyer while appraisers are the neutral party to the transaction"According to Eric Grande owner of Northpointe Appraisals an appraisal typically takes up to 45 minutes — 30 minutes inside 15 to 20 outside — depending on the size of the house"We are the eyes of the bank They want to make sure if they get this (house) back they can at least recoup their money" he saysIn addition to the home inspection an appraiser looks at comparable homes"You want to get a superior house an inferior house and a house that’s as similar as you can" Grande says "When you’re in the city you try to do it within a mile but you want to get it in a similar neighborhood with the most similar property"Realtors on the other hand have their own process called a comparative market analysis (CMA) with the same goal in mind"Ours is more of an opinion as far as what the market value of a home is" says Ericka Schott realtor and team leader of the Ericka Schott Team at Berkshire Hathaway HomeServices Premier Properties "A good market evaluation takes about two or three hours"Like appraisers realtors analyze amenities and condition of the home"If your carpet is really worn hardwood floors are really scratched up or if you have dings in the wall I’d definitely have those things either replaced or fixed" she saysDetermining home value is no easy task"No one has a crystal ball in this industry but we sure do have some great data that we can use off of our multiple listing service stats" Tollefson says "We team up with appraisers to educate ourselves on what we should adjust for and how we can communicate that back to our clients so there aren’t surprises" So be smart about your home’s value and don’t buy into the many myths perpetuated by frantic sellers and buyers Here we debunk six long-standing mythsMyth #1: Online values city assessments are accurateSome turn to the internet for a home estimate but Schott cautions against it"When they go online and get those different estimates that’s not going to be true market value for our area because it’s taking on a wider scope instead of figuring out exactly what the floor plan is exactly what somebody’s square footage is" she saysSchott says sites like Zillowcom don’t take into consideration what part of town the home is in proximity to schools outside amenities like a patio deck or fenced-in yard and many other factors They also don’t have the live data real estate agents do when the home closesClients will find that "a lot of homes have sold six months ago" Tollefson saysHomeowners can’t always go by city assessments either"City assessors are doing it for tax purposes — they’re not doing so you know what your home value is actually worth" Schott saysWhen conducting an appraisal Grande says he looks at the city assessments but doesn’t put much weight on the numbers because the market can fluctuateMyth #2: All additions are good additions"A lot of people think that bedrooms are a key component in increased value which is not accurate at all" Grande says "You can’t just keep adding bedrooms Your bedrooms just get smaller and your bathroom-to-bedroom ratio may be off You can’t have seven bedrooms and just one bathroom — there’s a functional issue there"In valuation conformity and consistency are key Grande says For example in a $200000 home a $10000 fireplaces isn’t realistic On the flip side a $2000 fireplace isn’t consistent for a $1 million home"You need to build to your categorization of your house — to your value point" he says "You don’t put a $50000 custom kitchen into a $150000 house You’re over-improving"Homeowners must be cautious of the extent of improvements so as not to over-improve "Or just understand that improvements you’re making is for you to enjoy and doesn’t necessarily mean you’ll get dollar-for-dollar value back (when you sell)" Tollefson saysMyth #3: Homes sell above valueTollefson says the real estate market has been robust the past four years but has recently evened out"Our market has kind of self-corrected and is back to normalcy" she says "We feel like it’s kind of an equal buyer versus seller’s market"Gone are the days where sellers can list their homes for more than they’re worth"You hear the market is strong so everybody wants to get their house on the market and list it for $10000 more that what they should but that’s not going to set them up for a successful closing" Tollefson says "They have to be aware that an appraisal is going to be done"We still have to do the evaluation and if the square footage and the amenities doesn’t warrant that price it’s hard for a realtor to list at that"If a home is listed overprice the home may sit longer on the market and run into appraisal problems when closing Tollefson saysMyth #4: Sheds count toward home valueWhen appraising a home Grande assesses outdoor amenities including decks fences sheds garages yards and more But contrary to common beliefs not all sheds count toward home value"Sometimes you have a shed with a concrete floor and that’s part of the real estate because that’s part of the property" he says "But then you have a shed with a wood base and that’s not (part of the property) because it doesn’t have footing It’s not part of the real estate — it’s personal property it just sits on the ground"In order to count as real estate sheds need to be bound to the land in some wayMyth #5: Every remodeling dollar is gained backSome homeowners hope to increase value through remodeling But Grande explains that some homeowners assume that with a $50000 kitchen remodel their home will increase in value by that amount"The problem is once you take out all the cabinets the countertops all the flooring and lights that were in there — all that had value at one point and it still did" Grande says "What you really have to do is subtract the value that was given to that then add yours Unless it’s at the end of its useful life like shingles there’s value to every component of the house" he saysMyth #6: Landscaping doesn’t add valueSome say dumping thousands of dollars into landscaping is a waste of cash but Grande says that isn’t true"When a buyer walks into a house they know within the first 30 seconds of seeing the home whether they’re even interested in buying it or not" Schott says "Curb appeal is huge"Homeowners consider size and value of the home when determining how much to invest in landscaping"If you have a $1 million house you’re probably going to put (up to) $50000 in landscaping — sprinkler systems rocks shrubs water fountains basketball courts indoor/outdoor pools" he says "It has to be attached to the real estate for it to be considered"BREAKOUT BOX:Updates that payDetermining home value can be a vague process but here are some improvements to consider: Increase square footage "Anything that adds square-footage will automatically add value" Tollefson says? Speaking first, he doesnt expose how he thinks, Addressing the graduating students in a paper he titled.
