CORRIDOR THROUGH CREIGHTON CAMPUS IS REDESIGNED TO PRIORITIZE PEDESTRIAN SAFETY
The news this week that Google has removed images from Street View that allowed virtual hikes to the summit of Uluru, a sacred location in Australia’s Northern Territory, raises a serious question. Where does this mapping-meets-real-world service shift from being a genuinely useful guide to an invasion of personal privacy or, worse, an insensitive and inappropriate compromise of the rights and freedoms of others?
What started more than a decade ago as a demonstration of Google’s prowess has gotten out of hand. Yes, Street View can be useful, but if today you touted the idea of sending surveillance cars past our houses to take photos to share with the world, if you allowed users to upload their own photos “where Street View cars have never driven before,” you’d prompt a backlash.

Wall Street’s foray back into lending to homeowners with spotty credit isn’t looking great during the coronavirus pandemic.
It’s still early days, but delinquencies on residential mortgages bundled into private bond deals, or without government backing, have shot up to about 18% as of July from a low of about 4% in January, according to Goldman Sachs.
That’s a dip from a recent high of more than 20%.
The Goldman chart breaks out the performance of loans in “non-QM” bond deals from those pegged as “prime,” a category that unsurprisingly has reported far lower delinquencies of 30-days or more.
Prime borrowers typically have credit scores of 670 or higher, with those in the subprime category closer to an 580 to 669 range, according to Experian, a credit reporting bureau.
In Wall Street parlance, “non-QM”
Construction is set to begin near the intersection of Broad and Main Streets as part of Salem’s latest streetscape improvement project.
The Salem City Council accepted an additional $310,734 in federal funding for the project. The new grant requires local funds totaling more than $200,000, which will be paid with a community development block grant, according to city documents.
More than $600,000 was put toward the project in 2018 from federal grants and local matches. The funding will be used on streetscape and intersection improvements from the west side of the intersection at Broad Street and East Main Street to the east side of White Oak Alley.
Improvements include wider sidewalks, renovated crosswalks, new lighting and landscaping.
The project is the latest for Salem’s downtown revitalization and streetscape improvements. City Manager Jay Taliaferro said the project on East Main Street between Thompson Memorial Drive and Brand Avenue is nearing completion.
