The firm resumed lending in September, after being forced to close its doors in early 2008 because of higher lending costs at the height of the financial crisis.Paragon chief executive, Nigel Terrington said market conditions were very favourable for landlords, due to strong levels of tenant demand.“There are currently not enough properties in the private renting sector to accommodate demand,” Terrington said. He also added that rents will rise “quite strongly” over the coming months.Paragon added it expected to issue mortgage backed securities in 2011. whatsapplast_img read more

Church delegates to bring ethical perspectives to Rio+20 summit

first_img Rector Knoxville, TN New Berrigan Book With Episcopal Roots Cascade Books Press Release Service [Ecumenical News International] A delegation from the Geneva-based World Council of Churches (WCC) will take part in the United Nations Conference on Sustainable Development (UNCSD) from June 20-22 in Rio de Janeiro, Brazil.The delegates will participate in various ecumenical and interfaith events at the conference, also known as Rio+20, according to a WCC news release. It marks the 20th anniversary of the 1992 United Nations Conference on Environment and Development (UNCED), in Rio de Janeiro, and the 10th anniversary of the 2002 World Summit on Sustainable Development (WSSD) in Johannesburg.The WCC said it will also participate in the Peoples’ Summit for Social and Environmental Justice, an event taking place June 15-23 in Rio de Janeiro alongside Rio+20. The People’s Summit will “propose a new way of living on the planet, in solidarity against the commodification of nature,” according to its website.“We hope that the results of Rio will effectively reflect a larger ‘we,’ including in particular the most vulnerable and poor communities in the world,” said Guillermo Kerber, WCC program executive on climate change, who is facilitating the WCC delegation to Rio+20.“WCC delegates will focus on highlighting ethical concerns, and religious insights in a number of events which we have organized, in addition to the intense advocacy efforts to be carried out at the UNCSD,” he added.The WCC program for eco-justice is organizing a series of side events both at the UNCSD and the People’s Summit. One will focus on “ethical and religious insights on the future we want,” which echoes the expected title of the outcome document of Rio+20 (“The future we want”). It is anticipated the document will include a call for action and commitments by the participating countries.The WCC gathering will take place on June 22 and include a message from Ecumenical Patriarch Bartholomew I of Constantinople. WCC Central Committee moderator the Rev. Walter Altmann will be one of the speakers among other religious leaders. The event has been co-organized by the WCC with Caritas Internationalis, the Lutheran World Federation and Religions for Peace.On June 17, another WCC event will address the theme “Ethical implications of sustainability: educational and religious perspectives.” The WCC has organized this event with the Baptist World Alliance, the General Board of Church and Society of the United Methodist Church, Maryknoll Office for Global Concerns, the International Forum on Human Rights (FIDH), the University of Washington and other partners.To address the “spirituality and ethics of water”, the Ecumenical Water Network of the WCC joins with United Religions Initiative and Faith without Borders on June 18. An interfaith panel will be led by theologian Reijo E. Heinonen, founding dean of the ecumenical theological faculty of the University of Joensuu in Finland.Other events where WCC delegates will contribute include a seminar on “The Rio+20 Legacy: an inter-generational dialogue on sustainability” on June 13. This event will be organized by Beyond 2015, the Global Campaign for Climate Action (GCCA).Besides these events, a program on the theme “Religions for Rights” has been developed for the Peoples’ Summit by the Ecumenical Coordination office. The office was established in March by Koinonia, an ACT Alliance member organization in Rio, and is led by Marcelo Schneider, the WCC’s communication liaison for Latin America.The program will bring together ecumenical and inter-religious participants for events in seven different tents at the Peoples’ Summit. As part of the activities, a vigil will take place on the night of June 17.“Our original idea was to promote an expressive spiritual event organized with the members of our ecumenical inter-religious initiative,” said Schneider. “But the People’s Summit coordination group adopted the idea, and now the vigil is going to be part of the overall program at the event.”“We had to adapt our language and symbolism to include many different expressions and movements of civil society. The vigil will focus on the four basic elements of life and the rights we are advocating for,” Schneider added.WCC activities at the Peoples’ Summit will include workshops on the “WCC and the Rio Convention on Climate Change” and “Climate and Human Responsibility for Creation.”More information is available at the WCC’s website: http://www.oikoumene.org.

Chicago teachers’ union points the way

first_imgEric StruchWW photo: Brenda RyanExcerpts from a talk by Eric Struch, a Workers World Party organizer in Chicago, at the Nov. 17-18, 2012, WWP conference in New York. See video at youtube/wwpvideo.The teachers’ strike last September was a high-water mark in the class struggle in Chicago, and it shows in which direction things must move. The strike was a link in the chain of class struggle that includes other battles like the factory floor occupation at Republic Windows and Doors and the occupation of the state Capitol in Madison, Wis., in defiance of Gov. Walker’s attack on public sector workers. This new wave of struggle is especially important because, in the case of the teachers’ strike and the Republic occupation, oppressed workers took the lead.In his new book, “Capitalism at a Dead End,” comrade Fred Goldstein points out, “In 2006 immigrant workers staged what amounted to a general strike involving millions to protest proposed repressive federal anti-immigrant legislation. That legislation was dropped. In 2008 workers occupied the Republic Windows and Doors factory in Chicago. This was the first plant occupation since the 1930s. Wisconsin workers in alliance with students seized the state Capitol and held it for two weeks in the winter of 2011 to try to stop a union-busting bill. There was even talk of a general strike. These are rumblings of resistance from below that are sure to grow in frequency and intensity as the crisis deepens and workers, communities, students, and youth come under even greater pressure and suffer ever greater hardships. No one can know when and how the struggle will grow and spread. The only certainty is that it will.”The teachers’ strike was mainly about stemming the flood of school privatizations and closures that have plagued communities of color in Chicago for nearly a decade. Privatization means the theft by corporations of wealth and resources that belong to the working class. The super rich, who have stolen workers’ homes through the foreclosure crisis, who have vacuumed cash out of our pockets through the vast expansion of consumer credit during the 1990s, and who now have their eyes on our Social Security, have also turned Chicago into a laboratory for the privatization of public education.Eight years ago, Mayor-for-life Richard M. Daley and Chicago Public Schools head Arne Duncan cooked up a plan to steal the public school system and turn it into anti-union, for-profit charter schools. Duncan dubbed this plan “Renaissance 2010.” He prefers calling it “market-based choice” over “privatization” so people are less likely to notice that the privately owned and operated charters are still funded through the workers’ tax dollars.Duncan did such a good job destroying public education in Chicago that the Obama administration put him in charge of implementing a nearly identical plan nationally, called Race to the Top.Renaissance 2010 was the official opening of what many have called the era of educational apartheid in Chicago, but the CPS privatization plan predated the Duncan regime. Daley touted charter schools as if they were some sort of solution to the perennial funding crisis faced by the public schools in Chicago. But this lack of funds for schools is the real problem that no one in the capitalist media seems to be allowed to talk about.Karen Lewis, president of the Chicago Teachers Union, points out that “in the last 20 years, CPS has closed over 200 schools and placed 300 on probation.”In the historic Black community of Bronzeville on the city’s South Side, which was the home of Chicago’s version of the Harlem Renaissance, families have been hit particularly hard by the closings. With the destruction of public housing by the Chicago Housing Authority as the backdrop, 15 Bronzeville schools have been closed over the last 12 years. Students have been transferred to different schools, some of them two or even three times. These school closures do nothing but further destabilize already marginalized communities. This is the educational component of the war on Black communities.The Chicago Teachers Union has been the best defender of the interests of the students, parents and community when it opposes the privatizations and closures imposed by the Mayor Rahm Emmanuel administration and the School Board. City Hall claims that the anti-union charters are out-performing public schools, but as the Reader’s Ben Joravsky points out, “There are 541 elementary schools in Chicago. Based on the composite ISAT scores for 2011 — the last full set available — none of the top ten are charters. None of the top 20, 30 or 40 either. In fact, you’ve got to go to 41 to find a charter.”Nathan Johnson, a teacher at Lakeview High School on the city’s North side, summed things up this way: “I truly believe that this strike has implications that go far beyond Chicago, and I feel that it is absolutely imperative that we take a stand and say enough is enough!” The Chicago Teachers Union is pointing the way forward for our class!FacebookTwitterWhatsAppEmailPrintMoreShare thisFacebookTwitterWhatsAppEmailPrintMoreShare thislast_img read more

FHA Introduces Lender Evaluation Metric to Expand Credit Access

Previous: The TRID Delay: What it Means for the Industry Now and In the Future Next: DS News Webcast: Tuesday 8/18/2015 Share Save Demand Propels Home Prices Upward 2 days ago The Federal Housing Administration (FHA) announced Monday a new method that will be used to evaluate the lending practices of FHA-approved lenders and help them understand the type of borrowers they are serving.“This is one more tool to help FHA, lenders, and the public, know exactly who we’re serving,” said Ed Golding, principal deputy assistant secretary for housing. “By better understanding FHA’s acceptable risk tolerance levels for a variety of credit scores, lenders will have the confidence to lend more broadly and FHA will have more data on how successful those lenders are.”The new method, FHA’s Supplemental Performance Metric will work jointly with the agency’s existing ‘compare ratio’ and offer different insight into a lender’s specific performance while encouraging lenders to serve eligible borrowers that are not necessarily credit worthy.FHA lenders will be able to see the impact of their business at all ends of the credit spectrum with the new supplemental performance metric, the FHA says. This will fall in line with the FHA’s willingness to insure loans to eligible borrowers with lower credit scores.Currently, the FHA calculates a ‘compare ratio’ for all FHA-approved lenders. This ratio compares a lender’s rate of early defaults and claims for insured single family mortgage loans to other approved lenders in a geographic area. Compare ratios identify lenders with a large amount of default and claim rates compared to their counterparts and which lenders FHA may terminate.The FHA noted that lenders placed concerns about the compare ratio being a comparison to one’s peers rather than to FHA’s risk tolerance, which the Supplemental Performance Metric responded to.The metric, along with the compare ratio, provides a more granular, nuanced look at lender performance by measuring default rates and claims in three distinct credit bands. Additionally, lenders will have a better understanding of who they are serving, according to the announcement.In May 2014, FHA proposed the development of a Supplemental Performance Metric—one component of FHA’s Blueprint for Access to Credit initiative, an effort to expand access to mortgage credit to underserved borrowers.This new complementary metric was made available at end of the July 2015 in FHA’s Neighborhood Watch Early Warning System. The new metric is designed to help mitigate adverse selection of borrowers with certain credit profiles and encourage the extension of homeownership opportunities to underserved segments of the market.

Man accused of killing Colorado mom to appear in court

first_imgWoodland Park Police Department(WOODLAND PARK, Colo.) — Patrick Frazee, the Colorado man accused of killing his fiancé and the mother of his baby, is due to appear in a Teller County courtroom Tuesday morning at a preliminary hearing. Kelsey Berreth, 29, vanished on Thanksgiving 2018 near her Woodland Park, Colorado, home. Her body has still not been found. Frazee, 32, was arrested in December and charged with Berreth’s murder and three counts of solicitation to commit murder. He has not entered a plea. Police said they believe Berreth was killed in her home and that Frazee was the last person to see her. Krystal Lee, a former Idaho nurse, admitted in court this month to moving Berreth’s phone. Three days after Berreth vanished, investigators said the signal from the young mother’s phone was detected in Idaho. Lee pleaded guilty to one count of tampering with physical evidence. Lee’s exact relationship to Frazee is not clear. Meanwhile, a judge has granted temporary custody of Frazee and Berreth’s 1-year-old daughter to Berreth’s parents, Cheryl and Darrell Berreth. Cheryl and Darrell Berreth also filed a wrongful death lawsuit against Frazee. Copyright © 2019, ABC Radio.

Evansville Talks Possible Gun Resolution

first_imgAPRIL 9TH, 2018  AMANDA PORTER INDIANAIt hasn’t been introduced just yet, but Evansville city councilman Dr. Dan Adams plans to introduce a resolution he says will deal with guns and school safety.The resolution is modeled after a gun control measure in South Bend, IN that keeps guns out of the hands of violent criminals, domestic abusers and those who are severely mentally ill.The resolution in South Bend closes the background check system loophole.Evansville’s city attorney says it’s going to take some time to look over what other cities have done to make sure they stay within the lines of what’s legal.“All of those situations are kind of mute,” says Joshua Clayborn.“This not being under consideration number one, because there is no resolution that has been introduced yet to the extent Dr. Adams is introducing something, we are going to make sure its legal. I am not entirely familiar with what every other community has done so I can’t speak to what they are doing right or wrong, but at least here we will definitely be following the law.”More than a dozen members of the community spoke out on both sides of the issues at Monday’s council meeting.Amanda PorterReporter and Anchor for 44NewsMore Posts – WebsiteFollow Me:TwitterFacebook FacebookTwitterCopy LinkEmailSharelast_img read more

This is not the Hudson County we know and love

first_imgRon Bautista, Former Hoboken Mayoral CandidatePhil Cohen, Chair, Hoboken Democratic CommitteeCristin Cricco-PowellNora Martínez DeBenedetto, First Vice Chair, Hoboken Democratic CommitteeRachel Hodes, Recording Secretary, Hoboken Democratic CommitteeVera Sirota, Hoboken Democratic Committee MemberEytan Stern-Weber, Co-Founder, Hudson For All; Immigration Lead, Hudson CAN To the Editor:For decades, Hudson County has been a welcoming community and bastion of democratic values. But on Thursday, July 12, we were betrayed when the Hudson County Board of Chosen Freeholders, in an astonishingly swift 5-2 vote, chose to contract once again with the federal agency of Immigration and Customs Enforcement. As you know, ICE is responsible for the recent rash of cruel, heinous, and inhumane practices inflicted on those seeking refuge and/or asylum. Make no mistake, Hudson County – with that vote, our Freeholders have made us all complicit in this machine which is tearing families apart on a daily basis. This is your tax dollars at work. The vote on this contract was put on the agenda at the last minute, in an attempt to prevent the public from taking notice and speaking out.This meeting took place at 1pm, on a weekday, at a time when activists and concerned citizens were unable to attend. We echo the sentiments of Sally Pillay, program director of First Friends of NJ and NY, “It was disappointing that the Freeholders rushed and voted to continue the IGSA agreement, without further review of what is written in the contract and without acknowledging Freeholder Torres’s request to table the item for further research and discussion. Clearly profits before humans were the driving point, given there are 800 ICE detainees to 400 inmates incarcerated in the facility.This is not the Hudson County we know and love. We are a place of acceptance; a place where those seeking refuge are welcomed with open arms; a place where diversity isn’t just tolerated, but celebrated. Today, we call upon County Executive Tom DeGise and the Board of Chosen Freeholders to utilize the 60-day opt-out clause in the contract and retract their agreement with ICE. We elected you to make moral judgments in the best interest of Hudson County, and this decision is in clear violation of your contract with your constituents.We must speak for those who cannot speak for themselves and we must fight for those who have nowhere else to go because that’s what America is all about.last_img read more
