The Bank of Japan’s Tankan survey for the three months to September showed big firms planned to raise capital spending at slower pace than expected as a recovery in exports slows.

US new home sales plunge to record low

first_img Tags: NULL US new home sales plunge to record low Share whatsapp whatsapp New US single-family home sales unexpectedly fell in February to hit a record low and prices were the lowest since December 2003, in signs of a deepening housing market slide.Sales dropped 16.9 per cent to a seasonally adjusted 250,000 unit annual rate, the lowest since records began in 1963, after an upwardly revised 301,000-unit pace in January, new data from the Commerce Department has shown.Sales plunged to all-time lows in three of the four regions last month. Economists polled by Reuters had forecast new home sales edging up to a 290,000-unit pace last month from a previously reported 284,000 unit rate.“It’s been a disappointing February for home sales and there are no signs of a turnaround,” said Kurt Karl, chief US economist at Swiss Re in New York.“We’re going to have a continuing slowdown in the next few months, but people will start to feel better in the second half of the year and construction and sales should do better later this year and into next year.”U.S. stock indexes fell on the data, while government debt prices rose marginally. The dollar was little changed.Compared to February last year sales were down 28 per cent.An oversupply of homes exacerbated by an increasing flood of properties falling into foreclosure is frustrating recovery in the housing market. Data on Monday showed a steep drop in sales of previously owned homes in February, with prices tumbling to a near nine-year low.The median sales price for a new home also plunged 13.9 per cent last month to $202,100, the lowest since December 2003. Compared with February last year, the median price fell 8.9 per cent. Persistent price declines could dampen hopes of a pick-up in sales during spring.In the face of stiff competition from foreclosed properties, which typically sell well below market value, builders are holding back on new construction.At February’s sales pace, the supply of new homes on the market rose to 8.9 months’ worth, the highest since August, from 7.4 months’ worth in January.There were 186,000 new homes available for sale last month, matching the prior month’s inventory. That was still the smallest supply of home since 1967.New home sales account for less than ten per cent of overall sales.

Liberia Bishop Jonathan Hart heads West Africa’s internal province

first_img Bishop Diocesan Springfield, IL Director of Music Morristown, NJ Remember Holy Land Christians on Jerusalem Sunday, June 20 American Friends of the Episcopal Diocese of Jerusalem [Adapted from an AllAfrica.com report] Bishop Jonathan Hart of the Episcopal Church of Liberia has been enthroned as archbishop of the Internal Province of West Africa (IpWA) in the Church of the Province of West Africa (CPWA).Hart succeeds Bishop Solomon Tilewa Johnson of The Gambia who died in office on Jan. 21, 2014.Hart was elected on May 1, 2014 by the Electoral College of the IpWA in the St. Augustine Anglican Church in Freetown, Sierra Leone. He is also the dean of the CPWA. Hart now assumes the role of having oversight of the Anglican Communion bishops from Guinea, Guinea Bissau, Cape Verde, Sierra Leone, The Gambia, Cameroon and Liberia.Hart was consecrated as bishop of the Episcopal Church of Liberia on March 2, 2008.Liberia President Ellen Johnson-Sirleaf, in a congratulatory message, said: “We and the Episcopal denomination in Liberia have not the slightest doubt that you will measure up to the task of your new assignment considering services you have rendered to the flock here in the Diocese of Liberia and your astute ecumenical standing within the communities of the Christian faith.”Archbishop of the Church of the Province of West Africa Daniel Yinka Sarfo pledged to work with Hart to build on the legacies of their predecessors.Sarfo, also the current Anglican bishop of Kumasi in Ghana, reiterated the wish that the two internal provinces of West Africa should eventually become autonomous provinces of the Anglican Communion during their tenure.Hart’s enthronement service was held at the Cathedral Church of the Holy Trinity on Sunday, July 6, and attended by more than 15 other bishops of the province, including Sarfo, as well as international guests from the United States and England. Vice President Joseph Boakai among other national dignitaries was also present.

Super 14 Pick of the Week – Round 14

first_imgFriday May 22, 2009 Super 14 Pick of the Week – Round 14 The Super 14 2009 is almost over, as were into the Semi Final stages this weekend, with one team already having qualified for the big final that will decide who will be the provincial champions of the Southern Hemisphere.The standard of tries last week possibly werent quite as impressive as Round 13, but there were a few great moments of quality from certain players as the race for the Semis lifted the performances of all teams in the chase.The Chiefs secured their home semi by beating the Brumbies in a tightly contested match, but it was the losing sides flying winger Francis Fainafo who showed up speedster Lelia Masaga with his determined chase for a neat try.For the Hurricanes, one of the finds of the season has been big Sevens star Victor Vito, who played a significant part on both their tries against the Reds, namely setting up Piri Weepu, and then Maa Nonu. Keep an eye out for him in the future.Ryan Cross and Scott Staniforth both scored nice tries for the Force as they bid farewell to a whole host of players, by beating the Highlanders. Staniforth, Matt Giteau, and Drew Mitchell, to name a few, wont be wearing Force colours again.The Stormers Joe Petersen continued his nice little bit of good form as he crossed again in Cape Town, but it was the Sharks who scored possibly the try of the week, with their long range effort against the Bulls, finished off by Steven Sykes.

Unique footwork sets up bizarre pushover try for Leicester’s David Mele

first_imgThursday Sep 11, 2014 Unique footwork sets up bizarre pushover try for Leicester’s David Mele This is an amusing try from Leicester Tigers in last weekend’s Aviva Premiership opening round victory over Newcastle Falcons. Replacement number eight Robert Barbieri came on and with the result all but sealed, he felt that this was the best way to control the ball for a pushover try.As you can see, as David Mele dived on it to score the try, he made a pretty good point.We saw Denis Leamy do this for Munster a few years back actually, in 2007, with great success.The Tigers won the game 36-17, scoring four tries in total, including a hat-trick to Niki Goneva. ADVERTISEMENT Posted By: rugbydump Share Send Thanks Sorry there has been an error See it to Believe it Related Articles 25 WEEKS AGO WATCH: Experts explain what actually happens… 26 WEEKS AGO WATCH: Leigh Halfpenny makes yet another… 26 WEEKS AGO Parisse alley-oop magic sets up brilliant… From the WebThis Video Will Soon Be Banned.

TCU, former wide receiver Kolby Listenbee exchange lawsuits over alleged abuse

Boschini talks: construction, parking, tuition, enrollment, DEI, a student trustee Facebook ReddIt + posts Facebook printFormer TCU wide receiver Kolby Listenbee filed suit in Dallas County state district court against TCU head coach Gary Patterson, the university and the Big 12 Conference, professing a pattern of abuse and harassment. The university responded with a filing for declaratory relief.The receiver was injured during a touchdown reception against SMU during his senior season in 2015. The lawsuit, which was filed Jan. 3, 2018, alleges that Patterson, former offensive coordinator Doug Meacham, and other coaches “continually harassed, humiliated, pressured and threatened” Listenbee in an effort to “force Listenbee to return to play quickly.”TCU released a statement on the lawsuit: “TCU takes tremendous pride in its long-standing tradition of excellence in providing a positive experience for its student-athletes, especially in the areas of care, prevention and rehabilitation of athletic injuries.”Senior Associate Athletics Director for Student Services Gretchen Bouton, who is serving as a liaison for the counsel representing TCU, discussed the possibility of settling the case out of court.“If we had any hesitation that we were in the wrong, this wouldn’t happen, and I definitely think we definitely stand by everything that has been said,” Bouton said.According to the lawsuit, after Listenbee injured the cartilage that holds the pelvic bones together, he was pressured to return to the field before he fully recovered. He said in the suit that pelvic instability “requires a minimum of six months of rest and rehabilitation.” Twitter TCU places second in the National Student Advertising Competition, the highest in school history “If there is anything possible that we did wrong, then I think this would be over right now,” Bouton said. “But I think we’re pretty confident that Gary’s record speaks for itself and our treatment of our student-athletes speaks for itself, so we’ll see how that goes.” ReddIt Garrett Podellhttps://www.tcu360.com/author/garrett-podell/ Linkedin Garrett Podell Previous articleHoroscope: February 2, 2018Next articleHappy Groundhog Day!

He spent time on the practice squad of the Miami Dolphins and Indianapolis Colts at the end of the 2017 season. The Colts signed him to a non-guaranteed reserve/futures contract Jan. 1.Buffalo Bills quarterback EJ Manuel (3) throws a pass to wide receiver Kolby Listenbee (18)  during the second half of an NFL preseason game.

The lawsuit claims this ended Listenbee’s chances at the “NFL career he would have had.”The lawsuit accused the Big 12 of failing to review TCU’s compliance with NCAA rules and policies. Specific defendants include head coach Gary Patterson, former athletic director Chris Del Conte, and former offensive coordinator Doug Meacham.Listenbee missed two games in 2015, a season in which 25 players missed some time with an injury. The Horned Frogs finished 11-2 and ranked No. 7 after a triple-overtime victory over Oregon in the Alamo Bowl.Despite the injury, Listenbee turned in a solid campaign, being named all-Big 12 honorable mention. He finished with 30 catches for 597 yards and five touchdowns. In the spring, he competed for TCU’s track team in the NCAA 100-meter championship.Listenbee could not be reached for comment.The Listenbee lawsuit isn’t the first time concerns have been raised about TCU football’s management of player safety. In 2010, the team physician, at the time Samuel Haraldson, told American Medical News that he was “verbally accosted” by Patterson after he did not allow running back Ed Wesley to re-enter a game against SMU after he suffered a head injury that Haraldson diagnosed as a concussion.The game was televised by ESPN and the exchange between Patterson and Haraldson was shown live.The following week Patterson was asked about Wesley’s availability for the coming game.“He’s fine, and as far as I’m concerned he was fine 10 minutes after he got hurt,” Patterson said. “But, it was good that we protected him.”Haraldson later issued a statement dismissing the blowup.TCU’s filing didn’t request monetary relief outside of a reimbursement for court costs and legal fees. The university declares that the doctors were contractors under a Health Services Contract, so TCU maintains Listenbee’s filing should be against the actual healthcare providers, Dr. Michele Kirk and Jason Mogonye.TCU is also trying to change the courthouse setting from Dallas County to Tarrant County where the school is located. The filing alleges that the former wide receiver’s address is a part of Tarrant County. Garrett Podellhttps://www.tcu360.com/author/garrett-podell/ Listen: The Podell and Pickell Show with L.J.

Media-hostile demonstrators attack 13 journalists during protests against price hikes

first_img RSF_en June 12, 2020 Find out more El SalvadorAmericas to go further Help by sharing this information Reporters Without Borders today condemned attacks by demonstrators on a total of 13 journalists during protests against public transport and electricity price increases that shook the country from 4 to 7 July. The press freedom organisation voiced solidarity with the Association of El Salvador Journalists (APES), which issued a report on the attacks.“These events have revealed an alarming hostility felt by part of the population towards the media,” Reporters Without Borders said. “We appeal to the leaders of student movements and opposition parties to ensure respect for the principle of press freedom withing their ranks and we support the call by the APES for tolerance and respect for the work of journalists.”Reporters Without Borders added: “The validity of a cause does not give its supporters the right to stigmatize the press on the alleged grounds that it does not give enough space to their cause.”The first attacks took place near the El Salvador university campus on 5 July. Iván Pérez of Radio YSUCA was accosted and insulted while Ernesto Landos of the Teledos TV station was chased by a group of demonstrators who smashed the windscreen of his car. El Diário de Hoy newspaper photographer Felipe Ayala had his camera snatched from him and later returned without the memory card containing the shots he taken. A group of students also assaulted Carlos Henríquez, the correspondent of La Prensa Gráfica, a daily newspaper based in the western city of Santa Ana.There was more violence against journalists at roadblocks erected on the outskirts of the capital on 7 July by supporters of the Farabundo Martí Front for National Liberation (FMLN), the former guerrilla alliance that is now an opposition party. Luis Ever Fernández of the Canal 6 television station was badly beaten inside his vehicle by protesters who tried to eject him until a parliamentarian who was present intervened. At another roadblock, demonstrators used paint to daub the vehicle being used by Julio Rosales of Canal 6. La Prensa Gráfica photographers Borman Mármol, Franklin Rivera, Félix Amaya and Alvaro Castaneda were meanwhile attacked and threatened near the international airport and stones were thrown at their newspaper’s vehicle. El Día de Hoy photographer Luis Villalta had his press card and camera grabbed from him. The camera was then returned without the memory card. The same day in Soyapango, near the capital, Fidel Toloza of Teledos and his cameraman, Walter Ramírez, were both badly kicked and punched and then doused with pepper spray as the town’s mayor, Carlos Ruiz, looked on.Finally, during the trial of a protestor on 8 July, police confiscated the camera of Gilberto Ernesto Garcia Dueñas, who works for an international news agency. They also seized an ID card identifying him by another name.Ever since these events, technicians working for the Canal 2, Canal 4 and Canal 6 TV stations – which are all part of the privately-owned Telecorporación Salvadoreña group – have refused to were their work shirts with the company’s logo for fear of further violence.

Report: No Immediate Impact on RMBS From Dorian

first_img Related Articles A new report by Fitch Ratings states that Hurricane Dorian is not expected to impact either commercial mortgage back securities (CMBS) or residential mortgage backed securities (RMBS) due to pool diversification, servicer advancing, and insurance coverage. Hurricane season, though, does bring severe storms that can impact loan performance. The report states that Fitch properties along the east and gulf coasts are susceptible to damage from hurricane or storm surges. Hurricane Dorian’s impact will be more modest than the hurricane season of 2017. Those hurricanes, most notably Harvey, Irma, and Maria, impacted residential mortgage performance temporarily, and delinquencies returned to pre-storm levels after 12 months. The impact of Hurricane Maria made mortgage delinquencies rise to 21.5% in November of 2017.It was reported earlier this year from the Insurance Journal that total losses from Hurricane Barry are expected to exceed $600 million. Additionally, public and private insurers paid out nearly $300 million according to the Aon Global Catastrophe Recap report.In a report earlier this year, CoreLogic reported that insured residential and commercial flood loss covered by the NFIP is estimated to be between $100 million and $200 million after Hurricane Barry, but 20% of residential flood loss is uninsured.CBS News reported that Hurricane Dorian made landfall Friday in North Carolina after being downgraded to a Category 1 storm. The storm has maximum winds of 90 mph and 350,000 residents in both North and South Carolina were without power. The storm’s eye came within 55 miles of Charleston, South Carolina, bringing heavy rain and wind gusts of more than 70 mph.Dorian’s strength has fallen dramatically after it ravaged the Bahamas for nearly two days as a Category 5 storm. The Washington Post reports that authorities three out of every four homes on Grand Bahama are underwater, and recovery “will cost billions of dollars.” The Post states that Prime Minister Hubert Minnis said Tuesday that the official death count has risen to seven, but expects that to increase as more of the damaged areas can be reached. “Parts of Abaco are decimated. There is severe flooding,” Minnis said. “There is severe damage to homes, businesses, other buildings and infrastructure.”Bahamas Deputy Prime Minister Peter Turnquest said the island’s infrastructure is “wrecked.” “With approximately 70% of the homes underwater, we anticipate tremendous social and economic dislocation and disruption in the short term,” Turnquest said in an interview with The Washington Post. “The mental health of those who have endured this monster storm is a priority concern of the government.  Governmental Measures Target Expanded Access to Affordable Housing 2 days ago Demand Propels Home Prices Upward 2 days ago September 6, 2019 1,019 Views  Print This Post Hurricane 2019-09-06 Mike Albanese The Best Markets For Residential Property Investors 2 days ago Tagged with: Hurricane Share Save Report: No Immediate Impact on RMBS From Dorian Mike Albanese is a reporter for DS News and MReport.
