The direct correlation between the Bitcoin price and Argo Blockchain share price (LSE: ARB) is clear and irrefutable. Last week, Bitcoin crashed. So did Argo Blockchain. As I write, Bitcoin is recovering and guess what? Argo Blockchain is on the up too.The link is hardly surprising, given that Argo’s corporate mission is to mine the cryptocurrency, and benefit when it rises. I’ve never really understood the point of investing in the stock, rather than simply buying Bitcoin. But people do.5G is here – and shares of this ‘sleeping giant’ could be a great way for you to potentially profit!According to one leading industry firm, the 5G boom could create a global industry worth US$12.3 TRILLION out of thin air…And if you click here we’ll show you something that could be key to unlocking 5G’s full potential…The Argo Blockchain share price risesInvestors will be happy this morning, with the Argo Blockchain share price up 7.14%, at time of writing. That’s on top of yesterday’s 12.71% gain. I could make a fast buck buying this stock. Naturally, I could make fast losses too.Argo Blockchain started the year trading at 35p. On 17 February, it peaked at 284p. If I had invested £10,000 on 1 January, I’d have had a juicy $91,143.Argo’s stock has since crashed, for exactly the same reason the Bitcoin price has crashed. Tesla owner Elon Musk called out the crypto as “dirty money”, because Bitcoin miners rely on fossil fuels, and reversed his move to accept it as payment until its green credentials improved.In a second blow, the Chinese authorities initiated what looks set to be a sustained crackdown on crypto. The Bitcoin price tumbled and, naturally, Argo followed. Despite that, investors have still almost quadrupled their money year-to-date, with the stock trading at 140p. Unless they piled in at the peak, when their stake has dropped by half. Clearly, this is a high risk stock, and will remain so for the foreseeable future.The Bitcoin price is highly volatile. That’s why traders like it, of course. Sometimes I think it’s only true purpose is to give them something to play with. The same goes with Argo Blockchain. I wouldn’t use it to trade Bitcoin’s volatility though, because the wide bid/offer spread will take regular bites out of any profit you’re lucky enough to make. Right now, investors buy at 145p and sell at 135p, with platform transaction fees on top.Bitcoin price growth could run dryThe other option is simply to buy and hold for the long term. But that bid/offer spread would hurt even more if I did get lucky and end up making a large sum. Could that happen? The Bitcoin price could go anywhere from here.Two things scare me. First, it now faces a combined regulatory crackdown, with the People’s Bank of China, US Federal Reserve, and the Bank of England united in talking the Bitcoin price down. Second, I think the Bitcoin price has been driven up by today’s massive fiscal and monetary stimulus. If liquidity dries up, it could crash. As will the Argo Blockchain share price.At that point, I’d rather be holding shares. In proper companies, with proper business models.last_img read more

Virtual Episcopal Latino Ministry Competency Course Online Course Aug. 9-13 Rector and Chaplain Eugene, OR [Palestine Israel Network] The Episcopal Church’s House of Bishops decided to table resolution C060 on corporate engagement on the Israeli/Palestinian conflict, leaving in place the present policy on corporate engagement the Executive Council enacted in 2005.  The resolution was an amended version of one sent to Convention by 10 dioceses.“It’s disappointing the bishops could not muster a clear witness for justice,” said Cotton Fite, convener of the Palestine Israel Network (PIN) of the Episcopal Peace Fellowship.  “But at least they did not move to change the policy.” That policy, which was comfortably affirmed by the House of Deputies, is to apply economic pressure on corporations that contribute to the infrastructure of the Occupation.In an earlier development, the National and International Concerns legislative committee removed language in resolution B010 that would have rejected boycotts, divestment and sanctions.  Conversely the House of Deputies also declined an amendment offered by a deputy that would have begun a divestment process.The effect of continuing policy on corporate engagement was accompanied by a second resolution B019 that called for “positive investment” intended to build an economic infrastructure for a future Palestinian state, for education of the Church’s members and for the development of a bibliography of resources to assist the Church in understanding the conflict.Responding to B019 Grace Said, a member of PIN, said, “I am disappointed that the resolution did not mention justice or the Occupation, instead focusing on humanitarian and interfaith activities to explain away the oppressive situation of our Palestinian sisters and brothers.”  Speaking as a Palestinian Anglican Said added, “despite the misguided policy of the Church, Palestinians remain steadfast in their desire to seek freedom, equality and justice.”Five deputies also attached a minority report, lamenting that the use of Kairos Palestine (a statement from Palestinian Christians issued in 2009) and Steadfast Hope (a resource on the Palestinian/Israeli conflict) were dropped from C060.“Our Church can now inch forward on its long-time advocacy of 33 years to promote justice for the Palestinian people,” said PIN member Donna Hicks. “We have had a policy on corporate engagement for the past seven years. There’s a lot of work to do on this and we need to hold the Church’s feet to the fire to see that it’s done.”The Executive Council filed a shareholder resolution this past year with ITT for it to amend its human rights policies that affect how it does business in Israel.  The Episcopal Church was the first major denomination to file a shareholder resolution on the Israeli/Palestinian conflict in 1994. That resolution called on Motorola “to establish a policy to prohibit the sale of products or services to any settlement, including persons living in those settlements, located in the Occupied Territories.”“We expect to see a robust effort by Executive Council’s committee on Corporate Social Responsibility in the wake of this Convention,” said Newland Smith, deputy from Chicago.  ”The Episcopal Church has such a strong record of advocacy aimed at ending the Occupation while promoting justice for the people of both Palestine and Israel.  The continuance of corporate engagement is the best result we have from this Convention.”“Today was a mixed bag for grassroots Episcopalians who want to see their Church make a bold witness to address the injustice of the Occupation,” concluded Fite. ”But there’s a lot of good news and we will continue to press our House of Bishops to exercise prophetic leadership.  And we will move forward, with or without them.  We know we have individual bishops that are standing with us and that’s heartening.” Rector Pittsburgh, PA Ya no son extranjeros: Un diálogo acerca de inmigración Una conversación de Zoom June 22 @ 7 p.m. ET An Evening with Presiding Bishop Curry and Iconographer Kelly Latimore Episcopal Migration Ministries via Zoom June 23 @ 6 p.m. ET Episcopal Migration Ministries’ Virtual Prayer Vigil for World Refugee Day Facebook Live Prayer Vigil June 20 @ 7 p.m. ET An Evening with Aliya Cycon Playing the Oud Lancaster, PA (and streaming online) July 3 @ 7 p.m. ET Episcopal Church releases new prayer book translations into Spanish and French, solicits feedback Episcopal Church Office of Public Affairs TryTank Experimental Lab and York St. John University of England Launch Survey to Study the Impact of Covid-19 on the Episcopal Church TryTank Experimental Lab Join the Episcopal Diocese of Texas in Celebrating the Pauli Murray Feast Online Worship Service June 27 Priest Associate or Director of Adult Ministries Greenville, SC Assistant/Associate Rector Washington, DC Associate Rector Columbus, GA Curate Diocese of Nebraska Rector Tampa, FL The Church Pension Fund Invests $20 Million in Impact Investment Fund Designed to Preserve Workforce Housing Communities Nationwide Church Pension Group Youth Minister Lorton, VA Seminary of the Southwest announces appointment of two new full time faculty members Seminary of the Southwest Rector Shreveport, LA Israel-Palestine, Director of Administration & Finance Atlanta, GA John McCann says: last_img read more

‘Put Jesus up front,’ presiding bishop-elect urges budget committee

first_img June 30, 2015 at 10:13 am Bishop Curry is talking about Jesus, evangelism, mission and forming disciples. The Committee on Program, Budget and Finance is “…caught in the cracks” between having to follow the rules that govern PB&F’s work and hoping to get what she called a “road map” from convention’s debate.” It is no wonder that TEC is in a morass. Lead, follow or get out of the way. Bishop Curry is going to offer Jesus Movement leadership. What will the structure of the church do?

Now lets GET ON WITH IT!!! Yes, we ARE the Jesus Movement at last, AmenLove to ALLCraig Knapp, St. John’s Monroeville, Alabama Priest Associate or Director of Adult Ministries Greenville, SC Cathedral Dean Boise, ID Rector Shreveport, LA June 30, 2015 at 4:42 pm Indeed we Episcopalians are so blessed that Presiding Bishop Elect Michael Curry will take the lead(ership) of our national Episcopal Church come November 1. I was impressed with his visionary statements when the candidates were first introduced, and quite elated later on and recently when his election was so overwhelmingly confirmed!Now with his focus on evangelism per this budget meeting, and “… to really engage in evangelism seriously …” I am somewhat concerned as this term can be interpreted in a variety of ways. According to the World English Dictionary “evangelism/evangelical” is defined “Advocate for a cause to try to persuade other people to share enthusasm for particular beliefs and ideals; the Protestant movement of Christian Church whose members believe in the authority of the Bible and salvation through personal acceptance of Jesus Christ; one who tries to persuade other people to become Christian.” Many of us are familiar with the well-known evangelists the late Billy Graham, and currently John Agee …We at Saint Mark’s Episcopal Cathedral, Seattle, Washington, have recently a new dean who appears to be from this evangelical tradition, and this has been quite a change–and speaking for myself, 25 years at Saint Mark’s and Episcopalian since very early childhood … I do wish Presiding Bishop Elect Curry had initiated the term “ecumenical/ecumenism”(World English Dictionary) “church unity relating, involving or promoting Christian churches around the world; and “universal ecumenical” involving all people or groups around the world; and “ecumenism”–a movement in the Christian church aiming at unity between different denominations on basic issues.”Our Baptismal Covenant requires that we Witness for peace and justice for all peoples, thus that is inherent in our responsibilities for compassionate action and advocacy. And following the Way of our Dear Lord Jesus Christ (a Palestinian Jew) that we reach out to all peoples, of all faiths and backgrounds. In our chaotic times we must be inclusive to All.In these coming months, we all look forward to learning more about being Servants of Christ!

Canon Mally Lloyd of Massachusetts looks on. Photo: Mary Frances Schjonberg/Episcopal News Service[Episcopal News Service – Salt Lake City] As the Joint Standing Committee on Program, Budget and Finance (PB&F) nears its July 1 budget deadline, Presiding Bishop-elect Michael Curry on June 29 asked the members to craft a plan to help the church “put Jesus up front,” share the good news and makes disciples.“I talk of the Jesus movement, of evangelism, of making disciples and our witness through public service and public advocacy,” Curry told the committee during a brief conversation during a 7:30 a.m. meeting. “That can sound like rhetoric that has no actual consequence, but let me assure you … we are talking about the church moving forth, taking evangelism seriously – in the Episcopal way but taking them for real because there is good news to share. There really is.”Personal service and public witness and advocacy “is what we do; that’s the Jesus movement,” Curry said.The presiding bishop-elect, who reminded the committee that his term does not begin until Nov. 1, said PB&F is doing God’s work. He likened the members’ job to that of Peter and Paul, whose feast day the church celebrates on June 29, saying that as word of Jesus spread out from Jerusalem to Rome and then to the known world at that time, the leaders had to organize themselves and decide how they would share their resources.“They had to have their own PB&F to figure out how their distributions and their funds would be used to change the world,” Curry said. “The work they did in the first century is the work you’re doing in the 21st century. God bless you.”Curry said the committee has the tough job of figuring out how the Jesus movement can “translate into concrete, practical reality in terms of the budget.”“Put Jesus up front. Put sharing that good news in front. Put forming our people as followers of Jesus – as disciples for real – at the front of it,” he suggested. “And then put inspiring and enabling them to serve in their personal lives, and for us to witness in the public square in the front. That’s the church; that’s the movement. I know full well that movements can float off into the air if they are not incarnated in reality.”Nebraska Bishop Scott Baker asked Curry if he sees specific changes in the church’s structures that PB&F could accomplish through the 2016-2018 triennium budget it is crafting for convention to consider. The presiding bishop-elect, in turn, asked PB&F chair the Rev. Canon Mally Lloyd of Massachusetts whether the committee had been talking to convention’s Legislative Committee on Governance and Structure.She told Curry “we’re kind of caught in the cracks” between having to follow the rules that govern PB&F’s work and hoping to get what she called a “road map” from convention’s debate on structural change about how those changes will be accomplished over the 2016-2018 triennium, “and release Executive Council to mess with the budget that we have to present.”General Convention approves the triennial budget, and the council often revises the three annual budgets, based on changes in income and expenses.Curry, who served on the Task Force for Reimagining the Episcopal Church, said he does not know what convention will decide about structural changes. “But there may be some creative ways to pre-stage some of those creative possibilities … so that council can pivot when it needs to – that may be the wisest kind of thing to do going forward,” he said.“The more creative space there is, the more the possibilities of a big system like this pivoting quickly and engaging what it needs to,” he said.B&F member David Quittmeyer of the Diocese of Central Gulf Coast asked Curry if he had any particular pivots points in mind to which the committee ought to pay attention.“I don’t know what’s going to hit the floor and what we’re going to end up with at the end of the day,” Curry said, adding that the “critical part” will be which dimensions of TREC’s recommendations “have the capacity to serve this movement we’re talking about.”Curry suggested that PB&F members ask themselves “what will enable the church-wide community to energize and equip our diocesan and local communities to really engage in evangelism.”“I think this mission has got to drive the organization,” he said, adding that in the church-wide structures “there’s some stuff that’s just given but there’s some stuff that’s not given.”He asked them to consider “changes that are going to facilitate our being able to ramp up quickly and engage evangelism seriously.”PB&F is considering how to adapt Executive Council’s balanced $120 million draft 2016-2018 triennium budget that was passed in January. Council’s draft budget was compiled after the church’s committees, commissions, agencies and boards filed their reports to convention containing funding resolutions. Some of those requests have been amended here at convention. Plus, many new resolutions filed since council passed its budget also ask for money to be included in the 2016-2018 budget. PB&F must decide how to fund all the requests that are before convention.PB&F will use the comments it has received from two hearings and from committee sessions during which it heard from Episcopalians it invited to discuss their budget line items, council’s draft budget and any legislation passed by or being considered by General Convention to create a final budget proposal. That budget must be presented to a joint session of the Houses of Bishops and Deputies no later than the third day before convention’s scheduled adjournment. According to the draft convention schedule, that presentation is set to take place at 2:15 p.m. MDT on July 1.

Fashion House / CORE Architects

Fashion House seeks to recapture the eclectic and creative energy of the historic Fashion District. The project is a unique interface of developer, architect, community and interior and fashion designers. Fashion House is a juxtaposition of business drivers with raw creativity within a community setting.Save this picture!Courtesy of CORE Architects Inc.The client wished to maximize the density on the site, and provide a significant outdoor amenity space that had sun all day and downtown views. Community space and public venues are important to this development. Trying to avoid the cloistering effect of urban high-rises, the street level features public spaces. Attentive to pedestrian connectivity, public thoroughfares pass through these buildings at street level, connecting Morrison Street to the heritage building and King Street. Given the heritage building designation, CORE worked with the city of Toronto through the site plan approval and permit process to insure that the original design and programmatic needs of the client were realized.Save this picture!SectionThe zoning constraints would ensure that the bulk and mass of the building would be setback from the Heritage Building and not penetrate a 45-degree angular plane, which was drawn from the opposite side of the fronting street (King Street West). The massing of Fashion House, a series of offset and stacking volumes, was largely determined by the existing zoning permission that was granted on the site for the area behind and beside the Silver-plate Heritage Building (currently the Keg Restaurant). The building massing developed from that into two long bar-shaped elements set at 90-degrees to each other. The podium element was meant to be a flush, glazed glass box to act in counterpoint to the heritage brick building; the condo entry is between these two volumes. CORE accomplished this by placing building massing where it would have the least impact on the neighbourhood, heritage building and still comply with the zoning by-laws, the result was a stacking of “building blocks” that created a large roof terrace on the south-east corner of the site at the 11th floor, ideal for an exterior pool.Save this picture!Courtesy of CORE Architects Inc.CORE challenged the notion that a building should use typical floor plates in a regular pattern, and opened up to the possibilities of using multiple floor plates that cantilever, offset, shift and overlay each other to achieve a more dynamic form that also complies with the site-specific bylaws. The red curtains (white on the interior) are a metaphorical reference to the garment district of Toronto in which this project is located. Young Toronto fashion designers were given the task of creating a signature art piece, in the elevator lobby area for each floor in the condo.Save this picture!Courtesy of CORE Architects Inc.There are 334 units at Fashion House, ranging in size from 464 to 1,566 square feet. Some of the stylish features and finishes include 9’ and 10’ ceilings, European designed contemporary kitchens with stainless steel appliances, exposed concrete ceilings and columns, stone counter-tops, pre-finished engineered hardwood flooring, floor-to-ceiling windows and a rooftop infinity pool. Fashion House is located in King West, which was once Toronto’s garment district.Save this picture!Floor PlanThe neighbourhood has steadily become gentrified by young urban professionals, both singles and couples seeking a lifestyle that is close to their downtown offices and leisure entertainment. As one of Toronto’s fastest growing neighbourhoods, King West has been compared to New York’s SoHo. The warehouses have now been converted into offices and stylish boutique condos, while high-end restaurants with names like Crush, Blowfish and Buca populate the neighbourhood. A block south Wellington Street is dominated by many of the city’s top advertising and media companies and loft-style condos, with several in the million-dollar range. Fashion House is effective because it has become an iconic landmark at the centre of the fashion district of Toronto. It appeals to the younger demographic of condo buyers, who are very interested in modernist design principles, and how both fashion and architecture can come together and be more than just “packaging”.Save this picture!Courtesy of CORE Architects Inc.Fashion designers from each floor (designed murals) include:2nd Floor – Beckermans3rd Floor – Dean Davidson4th Floor – Jeremy Laing5th Floor – Adrian Wu6th Floor – Jenny Bird7th Floor – Ashtiani8th Floor – Peach Berserk9th Floor – Smythe10th Floor – Jay Godfrey11th Floor – BustlePenthouse – Greta ConstantineSave this picture!Courtesy of CORE Architects Inc.Project gallerySee allShow less3 Universities Win 2015 NCARB Award to Develop Programs that Merge Education and Pra…Architecture NewsODA’s Manhattan Tower Offers Residents a Slice of Suburbia in the SkyUnbuilt ProjectProject locationAddress:560 King St W, Toronto, ON M5V 1M3, CanadaLocation to be used only as a reference.

This practice should stop at once if the government really intends, as it claims, to turn Belarus into a democracy.In the latest case, Ivan Shulha, a journalist who works for the privately-owned satellite television station Belsat TV and who is an active member of the independent Belarus Association of Journalists (BAJ), was sentenced to 10 days in prison by a Minsk court yesterday on a charge of “minor hooliganism” in connection with an incident the day before, when he was arrested.Judge Aksana Relyava’s refusal to allow a witness of the incident to testify is indicative of the way the courts are used by the authorities to silence independent media.Shulha’s arrest came when a police unit tried twice to force its way into the apartment of another Belsat TV journalist, Mihas Yanchuk, on the afternoon of 3 February. The police, who had no warrant, said they were responding to a complaint from neighbours about noise. The journalists present in the apartment refused to open on the grounds that Yanchuk was absent. A nearly two-hour siege ensued in which the police cut off the apartment’s power supply.Shulha, who had left the apartment seconds before the police arrived, reportedly called his colleagues by means of the intercom at the building’s entrance to alert them to arrival of the police. The police claimed that he attacked an officer. Their statements initially mentioned torn braid on the officer’s uniform and later talked of a broken leg. The police refused to say where they were holding Shulha until the start of the trial at noon the following day.Like Belsat TV, which broadcasts from Poland, the BAJ is one of the few remaining entities that enable independent journalists to work in Belarus. As well as monitoring and denouncing violations of free expression, the BAJ issues press cards to its members that allow them to avoid the strict procedure for accrediting news media and journalists. It also offers a legal assistance unit to journalists who have problems with the police.It was these functions that deputy justice minister Aliaksandr Simanau took issue with in a 13 January directive. Arguing that it was not a news media, he ordered the BAJ to stop using the word “press” (and therefore stop issuing press cards). He also said its legal assistance unit was illegal as the BAJ statutes contained no provision for it.BAJ vice-president Andrei Bastunets insists that the legal unit is envisaged in the BAJ statutes, which were approved by the justice ministry. “It is hard to image what violations the ministry has suddenly discovered in regulations that have been in place for the past seven years,” he said. The BAJ was initially given a month to comply but it has challenged the order and has requested clarification.Since its introduction a year ago under a new media law, the accreditation procedure has served the authorities as an effective mechanism for vetting news media. After citing many different pretexts for not considering Belsat TV’s request for accreditation, the foreign ministry turned down its request for the second time in December.Under a decree promulgated by President Alexander Lukashenko this week, the Internet is to be subjected to the same controls as the traditional media from 1 July. The regime appears to be clamping down on all forms of access to news and information in the run up to local elections in April and a presidential election to be held in early 2011.

Shannon Airport urged to grow European connectivity

first_imgAer Lingus needs to clarify Shannon plans – Crowe Limerick Fianna Fáil TD Willie O’DeaSHANNON Airport Authority has been urged to grow the number of destinations they serve including a new route to Paris.Fianna Fail TD Willie O’Dea believes that Paris would offer huge and hassle free connectivity to the rest of the world for businesses in Limerick and the Mid-West.“CityJet terminated the Shannon-Paris service in October, 2009 at the height of the recession and Ryanair cut their Shannon to Beauvais service in 2016,” Deputy O’Dea pointed out this week.Sign up for the weekly Limerick Post newsletter Sign Up “Many people in Limerick have said to me that they have to travel to Cork or Dublin in order to fly to Paris which is one of the largest cities in Europe with excellent connections from Charles De Gaulle Airport to hundreds of destinations around the world. Furthermore, the greater Paris area has a population of 12 million people and we need to market Limerick and the Mid-West to this huge cohort of people and encourage them to fly to Shannon and visit our many excellent tourist and leisure offerings.”Deputy O’Dea is also of the view that we must look at our connectivity with Europe and beyond with the possibility of a hard Brexit coming down the line.“There needs to be significant marketing support for an airline to commence flying on the Shannon to Paris route again now that the economy has picked up. This has to be a priority for Shannon Airport Authority.“Thankfully, Shannon Airport has seen a 6.6 per cent increase in passenger numbers in the first six months of this year with new direct Toronto flights and new and enhanced services to Barcelona, Bristol and Liverpool. However, the passenger numbers are still down about one million on what they were a decade ago and the lack of a service to Paris from Shannon is a major disappointment for many people I have spoken to,” he told the Limerick Post.Responding to his comments, Matthew Thomas, CEO of Shannon Group welcomed his call for European hub connectivity for Shannon and called for his support to champion the need for a strategic route development fund and tourism targets with Government.“In light of the challenges Ireland would face from Brexit, particularly a hard-Brexit, it is of paramount importance that we safeguard our European connectivity. The Government’s Project Ireland 2040 recognises the fact that strong regions are the bedrock of a strong national economy.  We believe that a strategic route development fund and regional tourism targets are essential and we would welcome Government’s and stakeholder support to see these asks implemented,” Mr Thomas concluded.

Optimism May Drive Home Purchase Market for Remainder of 2015

first_img Related Articles The Best Markets For Residential Property Investors 2 days ago in Daily Dose, Featured, Market Studies, News About Author: Xhevrije West Consumer attitudes toward the current condition of the home selling market and future home rental prices may launch purchase activity forward for the rest of 2015, according to Fannie Mae’s June 2015 National Housing Survey. Optimism among consumers about the housing market has reached new survey highs and strong job and income growth are making consumers appear more favorable in the selling market, indicating a possible increase in the existing home supply.According to the survey, an increase in housing supply from sellers along with higher rental cost expectations may be motivating more potential homebuyers to purchase. Among those questioned, 52 percent believe that now is a good time to sell a home, an increase of three percentage points, a new survey high and the first time in history this number has surpassed the 50-percent threshold. Simultaneously, 59 percent of those surveyed said they expect rental prices to go up in the next 12 months, an increase of 4 percent and also a new survey high. Tying a survey low, 63 percent of respondents say that now is a good time to buy a home.“Our June survey results show the positive impact on housing of job and income growth,” said Doug Duncan, SVP and chief economist at Fannie Mae. “The expectation of higher rents is a natural outgrowth of increasing household formation by newly employed individuals putting upward pressure on rental rates. A complementary rise in the good time to sell measure suggests that limited inventory, which is putting upward pressure on house prices, gives an increasing advantage to sellers. Together, these results point to a healthier home purchase market, with more renters likely to find owning to be more cost-effective than renting and more sellers likely to put their homes on the market.”Fannie Mae also reported that home price expectations among consumers is low for June, and less than half of respondents believe that home prices will increase moving forward. The average 12-month home price change expectation fell to 2.6 percent, the survey determined. The share of respondents who say home prices will increased in the next year dropped to 47 percent, while only 7 percent said that home prices will go down. Half of those surveyed believe that mortgage rates will increase in the next 12 months.Buyers are nearly evenly split when it comes to the obtaining a home mortgage and the number of potential buyers is decreasing, while the number of potential renters is increasing, the survey says. Half of the survey responders think that getting a home mortgage will be easy, while an unchanged 46 percent are sure it will be difficult. The share who say they would buy if they were going to move fell 2 percentage points to 64 percent, while the share who would rent increased to 30 percent.Economic conditions are also swaying survey responder opinions toward housing conditions, according to Fannie Mae. The share of respondents who say the economy is on the right track increased by 1 percentage point to 39 percent, while those who say the economy is on the wrong track fell by 1 percentage point to 51 percent. The percentage of respondents who expect their personal financial situation to get worse over the next 12 months fell back to 10 percent.Click here to view Fannie Mae’s June 2015 National Housing Survey.   Print This Post Fannie Mae Housing Market National Housing Survey Optimism 2015-07-07 Brian Honea The Week Ahead: Nearing the Forbearance Exit 2 days ago Servicers Navigate the Post-Pandemic World 2 days ago Data Provider Black Knight to Acquire Top of Mind 2 days ago Tagged with: Fannie Mae Housing Market National Housing Survey Optimism Governmental Measures Target Expanded Access to Affordable Housing 2 days ago The Best Markets For Residential Property Investors 2 days ago Sign up for DS News Daily center_img Optimism May Drive Home Purchase Market for Remainder of 2015 Previous: DS News Webcast: Tuesday 7/7/2015 Next: GuardianDocs Completes Seamless Integration With Calyx Software Home / Daily Dose / Optimism May Drive Home Purchase Market for Remainder of 2015 Data Provider Black Knight to Acquire Top of Mind 2 days ago Share Save Demand Propels Home Prices Upward 2 days ago Xhevrije West is a talented writer and editor based in Dallas, Texas.

News anchor Jeff Sanders visits ‘Gear Up’ students

first_img After graduation, Sanders worked as a “weather man” with WTVY in Dothan and later with the Alabama News Network at WAKA where he is today.Sanders has found the answer to the question, “what am I good at?” He is good at broadcast journalism. He goes to work every morning to a job that he loves.“Every day, I connect with people,” he said. “Every day, I get to hear their stories and get to tell their stories. I love going to work because each day is different. What I do today, I won’t do tomorrow.”And, what Sanders has found is that everybody has a story.“Those stories differ every day,” he said. “One day, the story might be of a family that has lost everything in a tornado or someone who is battling cancer or maybe of a governor that has been kicked out of office.”Or the story might be of watching as his favorite football team, Alabama, loses the National Championship Game to Clemson in the last seconds.“The stories are always changing,” he said. “Today’s story is not tomorrow’s story.”Sanders told the students that the way the stories are told has changed dramatically over the years. “The world has changed and how we tell those stories has changed and continues to change,” he said, as he picked up a small backpack that contained everything a reporter needs to “go live” from anywhere in the world.But the one thing that has not changed is the medium through which the news is told – stories.Those stories might be of presidents, of football greats or movie stars. Those stories might be of the bravery of soldiers in a foreign land or firefighters on the home front. Or they might be of ordinary men doing extraordinary things.Sanders said he has had the opportunity to tell stories of heroes and people in power but the story that has made the greatest impact on him is the story of a 97-year-old man in Selma, known as the Checker Man.“He would set up his checker board at flea markets and challenge anybody to play him,” Sanders said. “Nobody could beat him. He was the Checker Man—the Checker King.”Telling the Checker Man’s story was important because his story was simply worth the telling.“When you are in journalism, broadcast or print, you have opportunities every day to affect lives and you do that by telling stories,” Sanders said. “You become a part of many things and a part of many lives. That’s why I love getting up and going to work every day.” Troy falls to No. 13 Clemson Published 3:00 am Wednesday, October 11, 2017 Remember America’s heroes on Memorial Day Sponsored Content Book Nook to reopen You Might Like Citizens vote to allow Sunday alcohol sales in Troy Alcohol will soon be sold on Sundays in the City of Troy after citizens voted Tuesday in favor of the… read more Plans underway for historic Pike County celebration Jeff Sanders, Alabama News Network, was the featured speaker at the Pike County High School Gear Up program Tuesday.

My mother went through the 10th grade and later went back and got her GED,” Sanders said. “But they both knew the value of an education.”Sanders also knew the value of an education and began asking himself, “What am I good at?”He went to work in a column factory and, even if he were good at the jobs he was given, he was not happy. So, he changed paths and, at age 20, entered Troy State College as a freshman.While there, a friend suggested that he visit the university’s TV station. What he saw interested him. He liked the idea of telling stories in a visual way. He began to volunteer at the station and later changed his major to broadcast journalism.
