Noi finished with 14 points and nine rebounds.The Sooners, led by Young’s 39 points and 14 assists to go along with 22 off the bench by guard Kameron McGusty closed out TCU’s first loss in 17 games dating back to last season on a 36-16 run.Oklahoma point guard Trae Young drives to the hoop against TCU guard Shawn Olden.

However, the Horned Frogs answered with ten consecutive points of their own on back-to-back three’s by Kouat Noi and Kenrich  Williams plus lay-ins from Alex Robinson Robinson and Ahmed Hamdy. TCU took a five-point lead into the locker room, 46-41. The Horned Frogs came out of the gate looking for some breathing room, as they scored the first five points on a lay-in from forward JD Miller and a three from guard Desmond Bane to take a double-digit lead, 51-41.Then Oklahoma stormed back, ripping off a 13-5 run to cut the Horned Frog lead to three, 55-52, with 14 minutes left in the half. Young’s backcourt partner Rashard Odomes provided eight of those points. Linkedin Facebook The Horned Frogs then put their foot on the gas, answering with an 8-0 push with four points each from Hamdy and Bane, including a rim-rattling throwdown from Bane that caused an eruption at Schollmaier Arena that put TCU up 11, 63-52. The run was eventually capped by Noi’s career-high fourth three, which gave the Horned Frogs a 13-point edge, 67-54, with just over ten minutes left. However, Young and the Sooners wouldn’t go away, tying the game at 85 with a minute left after the freshman drained a jumper for his 37th points.

Photo: Cian ReinhardtTHE waiting time for driving tests in Limerick is “completely unacceptable”.That’s the view of Sinn Féin councillor Séighin Ó Ceallaigh, who was responding to figures obtained by his party this week which show the target is not being met in up to half of the State’s test centres.Sign up for the weekly Limerick Post newsletter Sign Up The average waiting time in Limerick is 12 weeks.“This does not include the figure of 1,084 who are awaiting a scheduled test date for a test,” the City East representative said.“The RSA (Road Safety Authority) say they aim to have a national average waiting time for a driving test of no longer than 10 weeks. The longest number of weeks people in Limerick waiting for a driving test is 20 weeks, nearly half a year to do a driving test.”According to Ó Ceallaigh, the main factor causing this is the shortage of testers to deal with the demand.“A significant number of testers have retired in recent years. This is foreseeable, and I do not accept that new testers could not have been recruited to ensure that these retirements did not affect the service.“The recruitment process has been slow and is simply not good enough. The Minister needs to support the RSA in recruiting significant numbers of new testers to cope with demand.“This situation has been ongoing for a long time and it is completely unacceptable that this hasn’t been resolved to date.“People in County Limerick, and even in parts of the city are completely reliant on driving to get to work or education. Public transport is simply not an option for many people with either a shortage of services, or no service at all within walking distance.“Many commuters would have to take two buses and walk to their place of employment or education, and often the times don’t suit their need. It very important that these waiting times be resolved, in order to facilitate those who are ready to take their test and are reliant on driving to go about their daily business,” he concluded.

Fannie Mae predicts this economic growth will boost the sluggish housing market into recovery.”Our forecast calls for an increase in economic growth to 2.9 percent for 2015, which is a slight downward adjustment from our prior forecast but solid improvement nonetheless,” Fannie Mae Chief Economist Doug Duncan said.The strengthening employment sector, declining commodity prices, and rising income prices are some reasons 2015 is set for a pickup, according to Fannie Mae’s Economic & Strategic Research (ESR) Group.”Although we are beginning this year at a more modest pace compared to the above-trend numbers seen at mid-year 2014, the country’s aggregate income has benefitted from the improving labor market, which, combined with low gasoline prices, should help drive higher auto sales and overall consumer spending throughout 2015,” Duncan said. “Our forecast calls for a number of factors, including strong hiring and income growth, stabilized housing affordability, and modestly easing lending standards, to translate into improving housing demand throughout the year.”However, the strong U.S. dollar weighs on the trade deficit, which may slow some growth efforts. Despite possible shortfalls with the global economy and future limited interest rate hikes, Duncan feels positive the housing industry will begin to see gradual increases.”We continue to anticipate that the Fed will begin to hike short-term interest rates later this year, although weak global economic growth and geopolitical headwinds will likely limit the rise in long-term interest rates,” he said. “We expect total home sales to increase by approximately 6.0 percent for 2015, with total single-family mortgage production climbing to approximately $1.2 trillion. Total single-family mortgage debt outstanding should be relatively flat this year before picking up gradually in 2016 and 2017.” Demand Propels Home Prices Upward 2 days agocenter_img Governmental Measures Target Expanded Access to Affordable Housing 2 days ago Fannie Mae Predicts Strong Economic Growth Will Boost Housing Recovery in 2015 Share Save The Week Ahead: Nearing the Forbearance Exit 2 days ago Related Articles Samantha Guzman is an award-winning visual journalist and graduate of the University of North Texas Mayborn School of Journalism.

first_img  Print This Post Sign up for DS News Daily A slowdown in 2019 will create a healthier housing market going forward, says Tendayi Kapfidze, Chief Economist at LendingTree. In an article titled “What We Expect in Housing and the Economy in 2019,” he pointed out that while housing will slow down next year, it is not a cause for significant concern. Kapfidze is optimistic about the medium- and long-term prospects for housing “as the demographics are going to continue to support demand. With a slower price appreciation, incomes have a chance to catch up. With slower sales, inventory has an opportunity to normalize,” he said. LendingTree does not anticipate a recession this year on account of a strong labor market that will form the basis for growth. However, political tensions will add to uncertainty and volatility which may result in a loss of confidence and suppressed business and consumer spending. LendingTree’s forecast expects an increase in mortgage rates to as high as 5.5 percent in 2019. Home sales will contract marginally by 2 percent to 5 percent on an annual basis. Growth in home prices will moderate to about 3 percent year over year, with some localized decline. However, this will not lead to a national decline, the forecast indicated. It also pointed out that higher rates will affect homebuyer confidence. Growth concerns, driven by political risk and slower global growth could hold mortgage rates below 5 percent—breathing new life into the housing market, according to Kapfidze. Speaking of home appreciation, prices are projected to drop regardless of what happens to interest rates and sales. Home price growth will moderate to about 3 percent year over year. Wage growth is likely to reach 3.5 percent year over year. Abnormally low unemployment can cause a spike in inflation if wage growth approaches 4 percent, the article stated. Speaking of FED rate hikes, it indicated the likelihood of FOMC raising funds rate twice in 2019.The consumer debt of 2018 stands at $14 trillion and will continue to rise this year. “However delinquency rates are low. Although lenders may somewhat tighten underwriting standards, a strong labor market and wage growth will keep delinquencies low and encourage lending and borrowing,” Kapfidze said. The unemployment rate is expected to fall to 3.4 percent by year-end from 3.7 percent recorded at the end of 2018. GDP will drop to 2.5 percent in 2019 from 3 percent in 2018. in Daily Dose, Featured, Market Studies, News, Servicing Servicers Navigate the Post-Pandemic World 2 days ago Is the Housing Market Recession Ready?

This way we have hundreds of contempt petitions before us. We are increasing litigation in the Supreme Court “, noted Justice DY Chandrachud on Thursday. The bench of Justices D. Y. Chandachud and M. R. Shah was considering a SLP arising out of the orders of the Karnataka High Court by which the court had first dismissed the revision petition against an order of eviction, then also the review of this decision, but had acceded to the petitioner-tenant’s request for grant of additional time to vacate. The landlord-respondent had begun Execution proceedings and a delivery warrant had come to be issued. “Given the COVID-19 restrictions and the consequential difficulties for everyone, unquestionably the petitioner would also be put to similar difficulties. Therefore, the petitioners would have been entitled to some reasonable time to vacate and hand over vacant possession of the subject premises. If the petitioner is granted time till the end of February 2021, the petitioner would have 10 months from the order (dismissing the revision petitions)”, the High Court had noted in the review plea, confirming the decision in the revision petition.”Sometimes, we extend the time to vacate by six months or one year. But these are matters which have been pending in the lower courts for as many as 15 years and even two decades! Why should we extend this time?”, commented Justice Chandrachud.It perturbed the bench that while one party furnishes an undertaking to vacate the premises within a specific period in pursuance of the order of the court, the other party, in most cases, is compelled to again move the court in a contempt plea on account of a violation of the undertaking.”We are responsible for increasing the burden of the Supreme Court “, concurred Justice Shah.”And in some cases, the decree for vacation is passed on the grounds of bonafide requirement”, added Justice Shah.The bench ultimately dismissed the petition.Subscribe to LiveLaw, enjoy Ad free version and other unlimited features, just INR 599 Click here to Subscribe.

first_imgiStock/niratBy: MEREDITH DELISO, ABC News (NEW YORK) — For years, Roy Den Hollander railed against what he saw as an infringement of men’s rights by feminists. A self-proclaimed anti-feminist lawyer, he took on cases against feminist causes, such as “ladies’ night” and women’s studies college classes. His websites host hundreds of pages of openly misogynistic writings.In those screeds, the court seemed to be the target of much of his ire, saying the justice system “stepped on my rights” and was biased against men.In a document on his website, Den Hollander wrote disparagingly of several female judges, including Esther Salas, the first Latina to serve on the federal bench in New Jersey, who had presided over one of his cases.Salas appears to have been the target, investigators said, when, on July 20, Den Hollander opened fire at her New Jersey home, killing her 20-year-old son and critically injuring her husband. Salas was in the basement at the time and was unharmed.The next day, Den Hollander, 72, the only suspect named in the case so far, was found dead by police in an apparent suicide, according to investigators.The tragedy highlights a surge in threats to federal judges and their families, and experts say that being a woman and being a minority only make matters worse.While judges — male and female — face threats for a variety of reasons, the courts have in recent decades become a venue where advocates of so-called men’s rights activism have taken root. The movement, which primarily argues that men are discriminated against in areas such as the government and justice system, has been criticized for the hateful messaging or violence of extreme adherents, like Den Hollander.And experts say that not only women, but the men connected to them, face danger from this misogyny.According to the U.S. Marshals Service, there were 4,449 threats and inappropriate communications against federal judges, prosecutors and court officials in 2019. In 2015, that number was 926. Over that same period, the number of threats investigated rose from 305 to 373, peaking at 531 in 2018. The U.S. Marshals Service does not break down this data by gender.Deadly attacks on federal judges are relatively rare and have primarily involved men, who, according to the Center for American Progress, make up the majority of the seats. Among the handful or so who have been killed was Arizona federal judge John Roll, one of six people who died in the 2011 shooting massacre targeting U.S. Rep. Gabrielle Giffords.In 2005, Illinois federal judge Joan Humphrey Lefkow lost her husband and mother in a targeted attack at her Chicago home.Julie Kocurek, the first female criminal district judge in Travis County, survived an attempted assassination outside her home in Austin in 2015, according to the Austin American-Statesman.According to the New York Times, investigators found a list in Den Hollander’s rental car with the names of three other female judges on it, one of them — like Salas — is also a federal judge. Another was New York Chief Judge Janet DiFiore, her spokesman had previously confirmed to ABC News. The third was a state judge who had presided over one of Den Hollander’s cases, the Times reported.“Being a federal judge in general is a role that can make enemies. People can be pretty upset about your decisions,” Emily Martin, vice president of education and workplace justice for the National Women’s Law Center, told ABC News. “When you layer that with the fact that if you are a woman, if you are a person of color, there’s a deeper vein of hostility and hatred that those reactions can tap into.”The attack on Salas’ family “reminds us that there are people who want to kill us solely because of our gender, the color of our skin, our ethnic background — or just because we are different,” Hispanic National Bar Association National President Irene Oria said in a statement last week when the suspected gunman’s racist, misogynistic writings came to light.That the July 20 attack targeted someone in the legal sector was “not a surprise” to Lecia Brooks, chief of staff for the Southern Poverty Law Center, which monitors hate groups and other extremists, including male supremacists.The suspect “had an ill-conceived belief that women controlled the legal system,” Brooks told ABC News. “He felt like women who controlled the legal system were able to grant greater leniency and rights upon women. He had this whole warped belief about what was true.”Den Hollander had “adopted” victimization language common among so-called men’s rights activists, Martin said, “to try to position men as somehow being harmed and victimized by women’s equality.”The court is one area where men’s rights activism has played out, particularly in child custody cases, Brooks said.“Around the 1980s it began gaining traction with men who were disgruntled by the results of their experiences with family court,” Brooks said. “It was at that time that no-fault divorce laws began to crop up, and they felt like child custody rulings were discriminating against them.”Over the years, domestic violence charges have been another area of pushback, Brooks said.Of late, higher education has been a focus of men’s rights activists, particularly regarding students’ due process rights in disciplining cases of sexual harassment and sexual assault on college campuses, Martin said.The National Women’s Law Center is behind one of four lawsuits against the Department of Education’s controversial new Title IX sexual harassment regulations, which address due process. One of the changes will allow those accused of sexual harassment or assault to cross-examine their accusers. In its claim, the National Women’s Law Center argues that the regulations, scheduled to take effect on Aug. 14, favor those accused of sexual misconduct and make the process “more intimidating and traumatizing for victims.”Brooks, another critic of the guidelines, finds that they play “into the hand of this male victimhood narrative.”In acts of violence where suspects have demonstrated extreme misogyny, women aren’t necessarily the only victims. In addition to Salas’ son, Daniel Anderl, the FBI has tied Den Hollander to the murder in California earlier this month of men’s rights attorney Marc Angelucci.That aspect of this case reminded Kate Manne, an associate philosophy professor at Cornell University and author of the forthcoming book “Entitled: How Male Privilege Hurts Women,” of another shooting. In 2014, 22-year-old Elliot Rodger killed six people and injured more than a dozen others near the University of California, Santa Barbara. Rodger left behind misogynistic rants that included a video where he vowed “retribution” for women rejecting him. Those murdered included four men.The cases, Manne told ABC News, showed how “misogyny can really distort someone’s worldview so that they’re a danger to pretty much anyone.”ABC News’ Aaron Katersky contributed to this report.Copyright © 2020, ABC Audio.
