Next: Higher Education Costs and High Foreclosure Rates The Best Markets For Residential Property Investors 2 days ago The Federal Housing Finance Agency has released the Foreclosure Prevention Report for May 2018, a monthly update on the foreclosure data resulting from the actions of Fannie Mae and Freddie Mac. The data reported nearly 24,211 foreclosure prevention actions completed for the month, a nearly 13 percent month-over-month increase from April, bringing the total to 4,154,218 since the conservatorships began in September 2008. According to the report, over half of these actions have been permanent loan modifications.Of the total 2,218,961 permanent loan modifications produced by the conservatorships since their inception, 17,557 were produced within this time period. Twenty-six percent of modifications in May were modifications with principal forbearance. Modifications with extend term only accounted for 47 percent of all loan modifications during the month. Eight hundred and eighty-seven short sales and deeds-in-lieu of foreclosure were completed in May, a 4 percent increase from April’s reporting.The enterprises recorded that the serious delinquency rate has made slight progress, dropping from 1.03 percent at the end of April, to .97 percent at the end of the May reporting period, though third-party and foreclosure sales showed an increase to 4,624 in May from 4,410 in April.According to the report, the enterprises’ foreclosure starts decreased from 15,308 in April to 12,834 in May. This comparison reflects recent data released by CoreLogic, which shows the number of foreclosures having decreased back to pre-crisis levels nationally as of April. This report showed more homeowners remaining current on their mortgage payments thanks to factors such as unemployment rates at an 18-year low, home prices above the pre-recession peak, and high-quality underwriting. Reflecting a near 4 percent decline, foreclosures have reached .6 percent in the CoreLogic report.Read the full report here.Want to know more about Fannie and Freddie’s recent movements?

The Bench comprising Justices Suvra Ghosh and Joymalya Bagchi held that “True and complete disclosure of the crime is the heart and soul of a confessional statement.” In the present case however, the so-called leading statements of the accused were “shrouded in mystery” and did not inspire the Court’s confidence. The observations were made during hearing of a bail application moved by one Sandhya Maloo, accused of killing her minor daughter. As per the investigating authority, Ms. Maloo had given a confessional statement, claiming that after committing the alleged murder, she kept the girl’s body concealed at her apartment and she could show the same to the Police. Findings While the Court expressed its mindfulness of the gruesomeness of the crime, involving murder of a minor child, it held that the manner in which the leading statements of the accused were recorded, casted an “ominous doubt” with regard to its authenticity. It observed, “the most clinching evidence with regard to the alleged recovery of the dead body and weapon of offence pursuant to the so-called leading statement of the petitioner appears to have been recorded in a most evasive manner. True and complete disclosure of the crime is the heart and soul of a confessional statement. No such disclosure is evident in the aforesaid statements although the purported statements are prefaced by the words “after committing the murder”.” It was held that the investigating authority did not record the confessional statement in terms of Regulation 99 of Calcutta Police Regulations which inter alia stipulates as below: verification of confessional statements must be doneoppression or trickery in obtaining a confession must be avoidedto seek to obtain the confession first and the corroborative evidence afterwards is to reverse the proper order or proceedings. (If, however, a confession is volunteered in an enquiry, every effort be made to ascertain if there is evidence corroborative of any point in the confession which can be verified)The officer recording the confessions shall immediately send the confession person to the prescribed Magistrate in order that the confession may be judicially recorded. Under such circumstances the Court held that the confessional statement does not inspire judicial confidence. It further stated that the recovery of the dead body and other incriminating articles was from a place which was in the control of other members of the family. In light of such “glaring lacuna” the Court allowed the Petitioner’s bail plea upon furnishing a bond of Rs.10,000/- with two sureties of like amount each, one of whom must be local, to the satisfaction of the concerned court. The Court has also asked the Commissioner of Police, Kolkata to conduct an enquiry into the “indifferent manner” in which the investigation in the instant case was conducted, particularly the recording of the so-called confessions in utter disregard to all canons of fair procedure. “Needless to mention, the Commissioner shall promptly initiate appropriate disciplinary proceeding against the investigating officer in the event he is unable to render proper explanation for his conduct in the course of the said enquiry,” the Court ordered while directing the Commissioner to submit compliance report by the next date. Further, to ensure a fair and impartial investigation the Court has transferred investigation in the matter to Detective Department, Lalbazar. Case Details: Case Title: Sandhya Maloo v.

first_imgUS Navy(WASHINGTON) — Twenty-one U.S. Navy fighter jets will conduct a flyover in the “missing man formation” in honor of President George H.W. Bush Thursday.The flyover will take place over the Bush Presidential Library in College Station, Texas, where the late president will be buried in a private ceremony, Naval Air Forces Atlantic spokesperson Cmdr. David Hecht told ABC News.The missing man formation is an aerial salute performed for funerals and memorial events. A Twenty-one gun salute, a military honor typically reserved for future, former and current U.S. presidents, inspired the Navy to arrange 21 F-18 Hornets and Super Hornets for this flight.Bush turned 18 and joined the Navy — a few months after the attack on Pearl Harbor — becoming one of the youngest naval aviators. His plane was shot down in 1944 during an operation to attack Japanese installations in the Pacific, but he would complete 58 combat missions in total during his military career and receive the Distinguished Flying Cross, among other medals.“Being selected to participate in this memorial is one of the highest honors a Naval Aviator can receive,” Rear Adm. Roy Kelley, commander of Naval Air Force Atlantic, said in a statement. “In addition to being our president, [Bush] was also one of our brothers, flying combat missions off aircraft carriers during World War II. His service to our Navy and nation merits a tribute of this magnitude.”The flyover will be led by Navy Capt. Kevin (call sign “Proton”) McLaughlin, commodore of Strike Fighter Wing Atlantic, Hecht said.The left front side of McLaughlin’s two-seater jet reads “President George H.W. Bush” and “41.” The words “Barbara First Lady” — after Bush’s late wife Barbara Bush — are just outside the second seat where the weapons officer would sit.The jets, which flew to Dallas this week, come from Naval Air Station Oceana in Virginia Beach, Virginia. Some of the jets are attached to Carrier Air Wing 8, which support the aircraft carrier USS George H.W. Bush, homeported in neighboring Norfolk, Virginia.The link between the late president and the aircraft carrier that bears his name was so strong that all of the previous commanding officers of the carrier have participated in the funeral ceremonies in Washington as honorary pallbearers.Bush attended the carrier’s commissioning in 2009 and delivered the keynote address. Over the years, he made additional visits with members of his family.Copyright © 2018, ABC Radio. All rights reserved.last_img read more

first_imgSummary1 Several albatross species, including the wandering albatross Diomedea exulans, have shown marked declines in abundance throughout their range. These seabirds are frequently taken as by-catch in longline fisheries and this mortality has been implicated in the population declines. 2 We developed a deterministic, density-dependent, age-structured model for assessing the effects of longlining on wandering albatross populations. We used demographic data from field studies at South Georgia and the Crozet Islands, data on albatross abundance from 1960 to 1995, and reported effort data from the tuna longline fisheries south of 30° S, to model estimated by-catch levels and other population parameters in the model.3 The model used two alternative assumptions about patterns of at-sea distribution of wandering albatross (uniform between 30° S–60° S; proportional to the distribution of longline fishing effort between these latitudes).4 Our model was able to predict reasonably closely the observed data from the Crozet Islands wandering albatross population, but the fit to the South Georgia population was substantially poorer. This probably reflects: (i) greater overlap in the Indian Ocean than in the Atlantic Ocean between the main areas of tuna longline fishing and the foraging ranges of wandering albatrosses from the Crozet Islands and South Georgia, respectively; and (ii) greater impact of poorly documented longline fisheries, especially the tuna fisheries in the south Atlantic and the Patagonian toothfish Dissostichus eleginoides fishery, within the foraging range of wandering albatrosses from South Georgia.5 The model results suggest that the marked decline in both populations, and subsequent recovery of the Crozet Islands population (but not the continued decline of the South Georgia population), can be explained by the tuna longline by-catch. They further indicate that populations may be able to sustain some level of incidental take. However, the likely under-reporting of fishing effort (especially in non-tuna longline fisheries) and the delicate balance between a sustainable and unsustainable level of by-catch for these long-lived populations suggest great caution in any application of such findings.last_img read more

first_imgFebruary 9, 2021 /Sports News – National Wild Super Bowl celebrations in Tampa prompt COVID super-spreader worries Written by FacebookTwitterLinkedInEmail33ft/iStockBy BILL HUTCHINSON, ABC News(TAMPA, Fla.) — Thousands of football fans in Tampa, Florida, many seen without masks and partying shoulder-to-shoulder in the streets as if in a pre-coronavirus time warp, are worrying health care professionals who fear the Super Bowl LV hoopla will become a COVID-19 super-spreader event.Following the hometown Tampa Bay Buccaneers’ blowout win over the Kansas City Chiefs, revelers poured into the streets outside Raymond James Stadium and elsewhere in the city, apparently throwing caution to the wind and ignoring guidelines from the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention to stay masked up and socially distanced.The NFL limited the crowd capacity to 22,000 in the 65,000-seat stadium and required spectators to wear masks. But outside, video footage from some Tampa neighborhoods showed scores of people without masks, turning streets into dance floors and high-fiving and hugging friends and strangers with abandon. Several nightclubs even opened their doors to take advantage of the festive atmosphere.ABC News contributor Dr. John Brownstein, an epidemiologist and chief innovation officer at Boston Children’s Hospital, called the spontaneous congregated scenes in Tampa an apparent “recipe for virus transmission.”Adding to fears is the fact that the Super Bowl was played amidst the backdrop of the highly-contagious B117 variant, also known as the U.K. or British variant, sweeping through South Florida.“Time will tell, but we have seen throughout the pandemic that when people gather — especially when you have drinking … as well as shouting and screaming, which can help project the virus — this creates a good substrate for the virus,” Brownstein said.He noted that 10 days after the famed Sturgis Motorcycle Rally in South Dakota drew more than 460,000 people over the summer, a dramatic increase in new COVID-19 infections and deaths were traced to the event.“That was a good example of a single-point event that brought a lot of people together with minimal adherence to interventions, and we saw the repercussions of cases and deaths as the result of a single event,” Brownstein said.Tampa Mayor Jane Castor defended her city’s handling of the event on Monday, saying, “The media can always find examples of bad behavior.”“I’m proud to say that the majority of individuals that I saw out and about enjoying the festivities associated with the Super Bowl were complying,” Castor said during a news conference. “They understood their level of personal responsibility and they were doing the right thing.”She said that prior to the Super Bowl, the city enacted a mask mandate for certain neighborhoods where people are known to congregate, handed out 200,000 masks and launched a safety campaign in which thousands of volunteers were out advising people to wear masks or pull them up to cover their noses and mouths.“You can supply everyone with a mask, advise them of the science behind it and expect that they are going to abide by the mask order,” Castor said. “Again, you’re going to find a few that don’t, but the majority that I saw were wearing masks.”Castor did not release numbers on how many people police cited for violating COVID-19 protocols.Cellphone videos posted on social media showed thousands of people, many not wearing masks, lining the streets of 7th Avenue in the popular Ybor City neighborhood throughout the weekend and late into Sunday night. Many of the revelers crowded inside and outside clubs that were open for business.“Scenes from Ybor last night and a few other clubs were incredibly disappointing,” the Tampa Police Department said in a statement to ABC affiliate WFTS-TV in Tampa. “The city spent the better part of a year educating residents on precautions due to the pandemic and have recently put a mask order in place for both the entertainment and event zones to ensure the safety of our residents and visitors to our great city.”Dr. Jay Wolfson, senior associate dean of the Morsani College of Medicine at the University of South Florida, told ABC News on Monday that the videos of football fans celebrating out in public are “just the tip of the iceberg” of the festivities that went on over the weekend in the Tampa area.“There were neighborhood parties and basement parties, and parties inside private venues that we didn’t see where the same thing was going on in even more confined quarters,” Wolfson said.He added that he drove by a barbecue restaurant Sunday night in a suburb of Tampa that was crowded inside and outside with Kansas City Chiefs fans, many of whom were not wearing masks or socially distancing.Wolfson noted that many of the football fans who descended on Tampa over the weekend were from out of state.“They’re going to now take whatever they have gotten from here, and some of them will have gotten something, and they’re going to bring it back to Kansas City or Chicago, or Minneapolis, wherever they come from, and that’s going to be part of that super-spreader activity,” Wolfson said. “And then we’re going to experience the same thing because many of the folks in the streets were Tampa or Florida residents.”Mayor Castor said the celebration isn’t over. Tampa is planning to commemorate the Buccaneers’ big win with a public celebration. She said the city proved it can safely hold such an event after organizing a boat parade on the bay and a free ceremony at Raymond James Stadium that drew an estimated 12,000 to 15,000 people in September after the Tampa Bay Lightning won the National Hockey League’s Stanley Cup.“We can’t have a historical event of this significance in our community and not celebrate,” said Castor, adding that the city saw no COVID-19 spikes after the Lightning’s celebration. “We will do it in a safe manner, but that adds another element to the celebration as well. But we definitely have to celebrate this momentous occasion.”Meanwhile, St. Petersburg, Florida, Mayor Rick Kriseman is threatening to hit rapper 50 Cent with a fine for hosting a Super Bowl party on Friday night inside a private hanger at Albert Whitted Airport. Video of the event posted on Snapchat and Facebook showed a large crowd with many people, who paid a cover charge, not wearing masks.“This isn’t how we should be celebrating the Super Bowl. It’s not safe or smart. It’s stupid,” Kriseman wrote on Twitter. “We’re going to take a very close look at this, and it may end up costing someone a lot more than 50 cent.”Copyright © 2021, ABC Audio.
