first_imgCharity raffle offers Picasso painting for €100 a ticket “Two hundred million hours a day: that is how much time women and girls spend collecting water in the world. Think about what they could do instead with that time: get an education, start their own businesses… This raffle will help us change the lives of 200,000 people in the world. Access to water is a key factor of development.”A similar charity raffle took place in 2013. A 24-year-old American won the prize, a 1914 Cubist drawing. The raffle is set to become an annual event. Each year, a new cause will be supported and a new Picasso will be won.

Indiana Farmers Speaking Up More on Policy Issues

first_imgHome Indiana Agriculture News  Indiana Farmers Speaking Up More on Policy Issues SHARE    Indiana Farmers Speaking Up More on Policy IssuesRandy KronFor the past year, Indiana farmers have been encouraged to find their voice and speak up about agriculture. With the Indiana General Assembly in session and Congress about to write a new Farm Bill in Washington, this is a critical time for farmers to speak up about the issues that are important to them. A record large crowed attending the Indiana Farm Bureau legislative kickoff on Wednesday at the statehouse is proof that more and more are doing just that. “We have been strongly encouraging farmers to find their voice,” said Randy Kron, President Indiana Farm Bureau. “Once they see that they can make a difference, they get excited and invite their neighbors to also get involved.”Kron told HAT there are very few farmers in the state legislature anymore, so most lawmakers need to be educated about important issues like broadband, taxes, and livestock. “Legislators want to hear from farmers,” he said. “They are their constituents. If agriculture is going to have a say in this session of the legislature, we are going to have to be at the table and we are going to have to speak up.” At the legislative kickoff, farmers from around the state had lunch with lawmakers and discussed policy priorities for the upcoming session.Indiana Farm Bureau has set a goal of having every member of the state legislature spend time on a farm by the end of this year. So far 50 lawmakers have spent time on an Indiana farm. IFB hope to have at least 6 farmers from each county make a visit to the Statehouse this session.

McLean Middle School two weeks ago is now considered a hoax after the student recanted his story to the police.School and police officials reported that, on Feb. 4, a man with a knife approached a 7th grade student outside the middle school and cut the student’s clothing. The student was not harmed.McLean Middle School principal John Engel said that, after days of investigating the allegation, both the school and the police found that the story of the attempted aggravated assault was fabricated.According to a report from Fort Worth police officer Charles Gonzalez, the student was playing before class and tore his shirt. The student made up the incident so that he would not get into trouble, Gonzalez said.While being interviewed by the detectives, the student recanted his story and told detectives he had lied “to make him look tough in front of his friends,” said Sgt. Steve Enright, public relations officer with the Fort Worth Police Department.The student said his shirt had actually been torn while playing with friends and he was afraid his father would punish him, according to the report.After the incident, the school changed their arrival and dismissal procedures.“We will keep the new dismissal and arrival procedures that we changed two weeks ago,” Engel said. “Things are a lot smoother this way.”Engel told parents in a letter sent home with students that the incident is still an opportunity to address safety.“We remain very serious about the safety of our students, staff and campus visitors,” Engel said.In the letter, Engel said “it was unfortunate that we had to raise the level of concern within our campus family.”Despite the false alarm, the letter still encouraged the community to remain vigilant.“If you see something that doesn’t look right, say something.”Madeline Hamm is an education reporter for the 109.

How High Did Serious Delinquency Rates Climb This Summer?

first_img How High Did Serious Delinquency Rates Climb This Summer?  Print This Post Home / Daily Dose / How High Did Serious Delinquency Rates Climb This Summer? Demand Propels Home Prices Upward 1 day ago The property information provider CoreLogic released its monthly Loan Performance Insights report for July 2020, which revealed that, on a national level, 6.6% of mortgages were in a stage of delinquency (30 days or more past due, which takes into account those in foreclosure). This represents a 2.8-percentage point increase in the overall delinquency rate compared to this time last year, when it was 3.8%.”To gain an accurate view of the mortgage market and loan performance health, CoreLogic examines all stages of delinquency,” the company reports, “including the share that transitions from current to 30 days past due.”In July, the U.S. delinquency and transition rates, and their year-over-year changes, were as follows, according to CoreLogic:Early-Stage Delinquencies (30 to 59 days past due): 1.5%, down from 1.8% in July 2019, and  down from 4.2% in April when early-stage delinquencies spiked.Adverse Delinquency (60 to 89 days past due): 1%, up from 0.6% in July 2019, but down from 2.8% in May.Serious Delinquency (90 days or more past due, including loans in foreclosure): 4.1%, up from 1.3% in July 2019. This is the highest serious delinquency rate since April 2014.Foreclosure Inventory Rate (the share of mortgages in some stage of the foreclosure process): 0.3%, down from 0.4% in July 2019. The July 2020 foreclosure rate is the lowest for any month in at least 21 years.Transition Rate (the share of mortgages that transitioned from current to 30 days past due): 0.8%, unchanged from July 2019. The transition rate has slowed since April 2020, when it peaked at 3.4%.Home values, according to the CoreLogic Price Index, are rising, yet, the report said, “unemployment levels in hard-hit areas remain stubbornly high, leaving some borrowers house-rich but cash poor. Despite the slow reopening of several sectors of the economy, recovery for other industries like entertainment, tourism, oil and gas have a more uncertain outlook for the remainder of 2020. With persistent job market and income instability, Americans continue to tap into savings to stay current on their home loans. But as savings run out, borrowers could be pushed further down the delinquency funnel.”Millennials, are among the many Americans taking advantage of low rates to either purchase their first home or upgrade their living situations,” said Frank Martell, president and CEO of CoreLogic. “However, given the unsteadiness of the job market, many homeowners are beginning to feel the compounding pressures of unstable income and debt on personal savings buffers, creating heightened risk of falling behind on their mortgages.”Added Dr. Frank Nothaft, Chief Economist at CoreLogic, “Four months into the pandemic, the 120-day delinquency rate for July spiked to 1.4%. This was the highest rate in more than 21 years and double the December 2009 Great Recession peak. The spike in delinquency was all the more stunning given the generational low of 0.1% in March.”While all U.S. states in July logged an increase in overall as well as serious delinquencies, pandemic hotspots Nevada, New Jersey, Hawaii, New York, and Florida were impacted the most, according to CoreLogic.By the same token, every U.S. metro area recorded at least a small increase in serious delinquency rates in July. Odessa, Texas—which has been hard hit by job loss in the oil and gas industry—experienced the largest annual increase. Laredo, Texas;  Miami; McAllen, Texas; and Kahului, Hawaii all experienced a large increase in serious delinquency.Authors of CoreLogic’s report stated that  “with industries like oil and gas projected to leave millions of jobs unrestored throughout the remainder of the year, we may expect to see continued increases in mortgage delinquencies.”For the full report, including regional data, graphics, and methodology, visit CoreLogic’s website.

It is to sell the degrees. It is required to be stopped,” observed the Allahabad High Court on Tueday (19th January). The Bench of Justice Munishwar Nath Bhandari and Justice Rohit Ranjan Agarwal made this observation while showing its displeasure over the move of appellants/petitioners’ institution to fill 25 seats in B.Ed. course directly despite the fact that 25 candidates belonging to the SC and ST were recommended for admission through the centralized counselling. The matter before the Court By way of an appeal, a challenge was made to the judgment dated 08th December 2020 whereby the writ petition preferred by the appellants/petitioners (Education Institutions) was dismissed. The appellants/petitioners submitted that without giving them an opportunity of hearing, the writ petition was decided largely considering the argument made by the non-appellants/respondents. Thus, it was argued before the Court that the impugned judgment passed by the learned Single Judge should be set aside on the aforesaid ground itself. The facts of the Case The name of twenty-five scheduled castes and scheduled tribes candidates/students were recommended in the centralized counseling for admission in B.Ed. course. However, none of those candidates/students were given admission rather appellants/petitioners’ institution filled the vacant seats directly. The Institutions argued that when non was inclined to take admission, the appellants/petitioners’ institution filled the vacant seats as per the Rules. It was argued that the rule permits direct admission in a situation when the candidates fail to take admission and accordingly, there was no illegality in the action of the institution to give direct admission to other set of twenty five candidates/students. To justify their action, a plea was taken that the candidates named for the admission in the centralized counseling were not inclined to take admission and for that a copy of the affidavit of few candidates was enclosed. Court’s Observations The Court perused the affidavits (allegedly filed by few of the 25 SC/ST Students) and found them to be in cyclostyled manner. Importantly, the Court observed, “It can happen only when the affidavit has been prepared by someone interested in creating it. In this case the appellants/petitioners’ institution itself was interested to create it otherwise an individual would give affidavit in his own language and cannot be word to word same to affidavit of others.” The Court further noted, “The affidavits were obtained by appellants/petitioners’ institution containing the same language which cannot happen if it is to be given by different candidates on different dates. The affidavits having the same language were created at the instance of the appellants/petitioners’ institution and seems to have been given to get refund of the amount paid online.” The Court also underlined that out of twenty-five candidates/students recommended for admission, it cannot be that none would take admission. “It would be an extraordinary situation when none of the candidates recommended by the centralized counseling for admission would refuse to take admission whereas everybody is in dire need to pursue B.Ed. course for getting appointment on the post of Teacher,” observed the Court. Considering the facts in totality, the Court did not find any illegality in the judgment of the Single Judge as it was not an ex-parte order rather discussed the issue raised by the appellants/petitioners on their appearance in the writ petition. Thus, the appeal challenging the impugned judgment dated 08.12.2020 failed and stood dismissed. Lastly, the Court said that it was inclined to send the matter to the National Council for Teacher Education (N.C.T.E.) for appropriate action (including the de-recognition of the institution looking to their conduct), but for the reason that N.C.T.E. is not a party to this appeal as well as to the petition, the Court refrained to take suo-moto cognizance, but warned the institution not to indulge in the practice of nature referred in the order. The non-appellant University was however given liberty to proceed against the appellants/petitioners’ institution if they indulge in the similar practice in future also and have communicated with the N.C.T.E. for appropriate action.

CUNA to build off early 2016 momentum to secure reg. relief

first_imgThe Credit Union National Association (CUNA) will build off momentum from the first quarter of 2016, using it to advance credit union advocacy priorities going forward. In particular, CUNA is encouraged by bipartisan efforts from Congress to highlight the regulatory burden facing credit unions, and those same members calling for relief from regulators.In CUNA’s latest Advocacy Update video, Chief Advocacy Officer Ryan Donovan highlighted CUNA’s numerous successes on the advocacy front so far this year. Most notable are the 329 legislators who called for the CFPB to use its exemption authority and the subsequent requests for regulatory relief language to be inserted into appropriations legislation.At least six legislators have requested CUNA-supported regulatory relief language–everything from general regulatory relief to raising the member business lending cap–be included in appropriations bills. continue reading » 4SHARESShareShareSharePrintMailGooglePinterestDiggRedditStumbleuponDeliciousBufferTumblrlast_img read more
