US housing market hitting slowest period of year
By Archita Datta Majumdar
The U.S. housing market is headed for its slowest period of the year. Online search indicators have shown that the peak the housing industry enjoyed until early summer has shown signs of decline. Since July, the market has dwindled to below-average sales. The National Association of Realtors, which announced a 3.3 percent gain in pending sales in July, has warned of a fall to come. The pattern is that of a typical seasonal slowdown, but what is worrisome here is that the housing market is still not equipped to deal with these fluctuations.

Duradek, the ALS Ice Bucket Challenge and the Vinyl Bucket
Duradek
There is a delicious irony when people who have dedicated their lives to waterproof protection are doused with ice-cold water. That’s exactly what happened this week at Duradek’s headquarters in Surrey, BC when Duradek’s owners and sales managers took the Ice Bucket Challenge for ALS. Of course, as a business participating, we wanted to take the opportunity to show off the strength of our Duradek membrane and how the heat-welded seams completely protect a deck from water penetration. There have been some competitor generated rumours and even an amusing staged video that attempts to infer that Duradek’s seam strength is not as strong as theirs. Well, we can put that myth to rest! One of our talented Duradek installers, Trevor Deighton of Full Deck Restorations, made us a bucket constructed of Duradek Ultra Cork Macchiato. Duradek’s roof grade waterproof protection was able to hold approximately 4 gallons of water without showing any signs of stress on the seams, so you can be certain when it is laid on your roof deck or balcony that it is water-tight!

Wood costs for hardwood pulp producers have fallen worldwide
BusinessWire via MarketWatch
Wood fiber costs, the major cost component when manufacturing wood pulp, have developed quite differently the past few years for pulp mills manufacturing softwood pulp compared to companies producing hardwood-based pulp.

LEADERSHIP


Embracing change in business
By Catherine Iste
Regardless of industry or title, the one thing we all have to understand is the nature of change. In government, defense and law enforcement, sometimes it feels that change happens too slowly and we blame the bureaucracy and red tape. Oddly though, if something big happens externally, somehow our previously bureaucratic organizations seem to be able to respond quickly with new initiatives. Conversely, in the private sector, waves of words like entrepreneurial and innovation have inspired our CEOs to want organizational cultures that support and even create change. What skills and characteristics can we learn or embrace to be ready of the many faces of change?
