first_img Reporters Without Borders protested today at the seizure of a Reuters journalist’s film by Israeli soldiers and suggested it was an attempt to cover up evidence about clashes with Palestinian demonstrators. It called for the confiscated videotape to be returned at once.”This incident shows the general attitude of Israeli troops, who have disobeyed the rules set by their superiors,” said Reporters Without Borders secretary-general Robert Ménard in a letter to Chief of Staff Moshé Yahalon. “We would be very shocked if we were now told that once again, as in the past, that the cassette has been ‘lost’ and so cannot be returned.”At the end of a day of clashes in Nablus on 30 September, Israeli troops seized the film from Reuters cameraman Hassan Titi, who had gone to a checkpoint on the outskirts of the West Bank city to give it to an Israeli driver to take to the Reuters office in Jerusalem. An Israeli army spokesman said the soldiers had disobeyed regulations and said every effort would be made to return the cassette to Reuters.Violations of press freedom have increased since the start of Operation Rampart on 29 March this year. The work of Palestinian journalists in particular has been obstructed, through cancellation of press cards, warning gunfire, arrests and threats. Foreign journalists have been obstructed too, by the use of closed military zones.

Many on-the-fence renters or homeowners looking for more space were prompted by low interest rates to pull the trigger. There’s a solid chance that any recent homebuyer paid more than the asking price, due to supply shortages and increased competition.Those who didn’t take all of the prudent measures—including taking the time to boost credit in order to lock in the best possible rates, something the experts at WalletHub, which just conducted a study on overleveraged mortgagers, have suggested—might be facing a hint or even a significant sense of buyer’s remorse.In its report, WalletHub decided which cities are home to the most overleveraged mortgage debtors by comparing the median mortgage balances against the median income and median home value in more than 2,500 cities.Source: WalletHubWillis, TX tops WalletHub’s list with a 168% mortgage debt-to-house value ratio and 555% mortgage debt-to-income ratio, which led to a high “WalletHub Home Overleverage Score” of 66.57.Right behind Willis is Dumfries, Virginia, followed by Bell Gardens, California, Ewa Beach, Hawaii, and, rounding out the top five, McKees Rocks, Pennsylvania. 99Willis, TX66.57$141,804$84,500$25,570555%168% 99Kahului, HI61.37$374,859$619,000$39,691944%61% Previous: Prospective Homeowners Face Increasing Changes, Challenges Next: Ginnie Mae Enhances MBS Data Disclosure in Daily Dose, Featured, Market Studies, News 2021-03-24 Christina Hughes Babb Servicers Navigate the Post-Pandemic World 2 days ago Christina Hughes Babb is a reporter for DS News and MReport.

Mortgage interest rates are still historically low, making mortgage payments financially feasible for many households,” said Jonathan Halket, Real Estate Fellow at Mays Business School at Texas A&M University. “However, these historically low rates have been priced into many housing markets already—house prices are high. Furthermore, inventory is low, so depending on the market, there may be few choices within your budget. Paying top dollar to commit yourself to a house that is not the one you want to live in just to access a cheap mortgage is probably not a good idea.”Halket has some recommendations for the overcommitted, such as reducing expenses or refinancing, but for someone who just taken on too large a mortgage and will likely never be able to comfortably afford to make the payments, he says, “downsizing as gracefully as possible is probably your best bet. This can be hard to swallow but doing it sooner before you are in deeper financial difficulty, can be key.”While they all concur it’s more difficult to do in advance than in hindsight, experts say there are ways to tell if the homes in a particular market are overpriced.For many of the larger metropolitan areas, the Case-Shiller indexes provide a time trend of housing prices and are available for free on the Federal Reserve Bank of St. Louis’ FRED economic data repository (DS News also regularly reports the Case-Shiller HPI results), shared finance professor Brian Payne.He says another source of information involves local housing market affordability indexes, which measure housing costs relative to income for local areas. One example is the “Housing Affordability” resource at the University of Nebraska at Omaha website.Halket also suggests taking a look at rents in the market in question. He says, “If you can rent a comparable property for less than the mortgage payment plus the property tax, then it might be overpriced.”More insights on the topic from several experts is available on Percentile Rank*CityWalletHub Home Overleverage Score**Median Mortgage DebtMedian House ValueMedian IncomeMortgage Debt-to-Income RatioMortgage Debt-to-House Value Ratio 99Bell Gardens, CA62.57$260,390$415,200$27,257955%63% Demand Propels Home Prices Upward 2 days agolast_img read more

first_imgAlexLinch/iStock(PHILADELPHIA) — The 11-year-old boy who changed his last name from “Trump” after he was bullied at school was recognized over the weekend by an anti-bullying organization for his courage.Philadelphia-based nonprofit Teach Anti Bullying honored Joshua Berto with the National Anti Bullying Medal of Courage on Saturday for “his bravery to stand tall to bullying in his school community,” according to a press release. He is the 48th recipient of the award.Joshua, who lives in Clayton, Delaware, began going by his father’s last name, rather than his mother’s, due to the relentless bullying he experienced after President Donald Trump began campaigning in the 2016 presidential election.The bullying started two years ago while Joshua was enrolled at Claymont Elementary School, the Delaware News Journal reported.His father, Bobby Berto, then pulled him out of school and homeschooled him for a year, he told ABC Philadelphia station WPVI-TV.Joshua’s mother, Megan Trump, who is not related to the president, told WPVI-TV that other kids would curse at her son, calling him stupid and an idiot. He hated his last name and felt sad all the time, his parents told the station.The bullying got so bad the school district agreed to change Joshua’s name in the system when he began at Talley Middle School in the fall, WPVI-TV reported.In addition, many students who participated in the bullying have since apologized to him, according to the local station.While Joshua’s story is “tragic,” it “provides greater awareness to many,” said Dr. Claudio Cerullo, founder of Teach Anti Bullying.“This little boy has been victim to relentless bullying simply over his last name that is associated with our 45th President of the United States,” the organization wrote on Facebook after the ceremony. “Glad we cold [sic] bring a smile back to his wonderful face.”It is unclear if the family plans to legally change Joshua’s name.Copyright © 2018, ABC Radio.

first_imgABC News(NEW YORK) — A storm over the central Plains is expected to move eastward through the day Sunday, bringing the next round of severe weather to parts of the Deep South.The storm currently is bringing some bands of heavier rain across parts of Kansas and Nebraska, while a couple of thunderstorms are forming across Oklahoma, Arkansas and southern Missouri.The storm brought severe weather to parts of Oklahoma on Saturday night, where accumulating hail was reported in and around the Oklahoma City metropolitan region. Hail almost the size of golf balls was reported in Oklahoma County, which includes Oklahoma City.Strong thunderstorms with heavy rain and gusty wind will fire up throughout the day across parts of the Midwest, before moving into the Tennessee Valley by Sunday night.As the cold front associated with the storm taps into moisture coming from the Gulf of Mexico, severe storms will develop during the afternoon and early evening hours in parts of the Deep South.There is a slight risk for severe weather Sunday from northeast Texas to southern Missouri, including Dallas and Little Rock, Arkansas.In the slight-risk region, there is a chance for some damaging winds and large hail. Although this threat does not look conducive to tornadoes, a brief tornado or two cannot be ruled out.Some of these storms will fire up from Louisiana to Kentucky by early Monday morning, and could be strong over parts of Mississippi and Alabama.River flooding continues to be a threatThis storm is also bringing some precipitation to parts of the Midwest that are still dealing with river flooding due to snow melt and ice jams.The Mississippi River at St. Paul, Minnesota, will rise into major flood stage late Sunday or early Monday and will remain in that state through the end of the week. However, the main impacts from this river flooding are likely going to be park and road flooding. Additionally, some bridges along the Mississippi River could be affected by high water.Moderate to major river flooding is still ongoing across parts of Kansas and Missouri. However, the Missouri River is now receding in St. Joseph, Missouri; Atchison, Kansas; and Leavenworth, Kansas. The Missouri River is cresting in Parkville, Missouri; Kansas City; Missouri; and Sibley, Missouri, and will begin receding late Sunday.New Pacific storm moves inIn the western U.S., one storm will quickly move through the northern Rockies and southern Cascades Sunday, as a new, more-potent storm will approach the West Coast by Monday morning.This next storm will bring heavy rain to much of Northern California by Monday morning and eventually bring mountain snow to parts of the Sierra Nevadas.However, high pressure building over the central U.S. will initially prevent the storm’s impacts from moving inland. Locally, 1 to 2 inches of rain are possible along the coasts of Northern California and Oregon. As much as 1 to 2 feet of mountain snow is possible in some of the Sierra Nevada range. This could cause significant travel impacts in the mountain passes of Northern California on Monday and Tuesday.Another Pacific storm will move toward the West Coast later in the week. After about a week or so of relatively quiet weather, it appears that the atmosphere is getting ready once again to turn active as we head toward the end of March and beginning of April.

first_imgPENZANCE-BASED bakery chain Warrens, with 56 shops, says it has got the year “off to a brilliant start” with a French-themed promotion.Product development manager Jason Jobling said the company is offering a nine-line French range for the month of February, including French sticks, croissants, pains au chocolat as well as Boeuf Bourguignon pasties and French onion soup.

first_imgThe Ministry of Food has made an order that will make it an offence, punishable by fine or imprisonment, to waste food. Among the conditions imposed by the order is that where anyone having the disposal of food unreasonably retains it until it becomes unfit for human consumption, he may be punished.Examples of the type of wastes covered are: where food fit for human consumption is wilfully or negligently damaged or thrown away; where anyone having control or custody of food fails to take reasonable precautions for its preservation; and where anyone procures a larger quantity of food than he reasonably requires. No inspectors or “snoopers” will be employed. Our recollection of the order in the last war was that the nature of the penalties did not achieve a great deal in the long run.last_img read more
