MHA is scheduled to end on December 31, 2016, and the Department of Treasury released its first set of guidelines to servicers for MHA termination earlier in March.Nearly 1.6 million of those 2.5 million homeowner assistance actions were permanent loan modifications completed through the Home Affordable Modification Program (HAMP). The Federal Housing Administration (FHA) has completed more than 3.1 million loss mitigation and early delinquency interventions during that same period from April 2009 until January 2016.“These Administration programs continue to encourage improved standards and processes in the industry, with lenders offering families and individuals more than 4.6 million proprietary modifications through December,” said Katherine O’Regan, Assistant Secretary for the Office of Policy Development & Research at HUD. “Although there is good news overall, the Administration remains committed to helping more Americans realize their dream of home ownership through an improving economy and new programs that will provide greater access to credit.”Citing data from the National Association of Realtors, HUD also reported that in January, existing homes rose to their second-highest pace since 2007, increasing by 0.4 percent up to a pace of about 5.47 million units annually—an 11 percent year-over-year increase. Existing-home sales have sold at a rate of more than 5 million annually for 10 of the last 11 months. Housing prices were up by 5.6 percent over the previous six months and are 1.2 percent above the peak reached in March 2007, according to data from the Federal Housing Finance Agency.Click here to view the entire HUD February scorecard.center_img Previous: Quicken Still Fighting Government’s Lawsuit Over FHA Loans Next: The Week Ahead: CFPB Director Cordray to Face Grilling from Congress Servicers Navigate the Post-Pandemic World 2 days ago The Best Markets For Residential Property Investors 2 days ago Demand Propels Home Prices Upward 2 days ago Sign up for DS News Daily Data Provider Black Knight to Acquire Top of Mind 2 days ago Home / Daily Dose / HUD Measures Progress Toward Helping Struggling Homeowners Data Provider Black Knight to Acquire Top of Mind 2 days ago HUD Measures Progress Toward Helping Struggling Homeowners Related Articles March 11, 2016 3,227 Views Subscribelast_img read more

US B-52H Train with Colombian Air Force, Ecuadorean Navy

first_imgBy Technical Sergeant Angela Ruiz, U.S. Air Forces Southern/12th Air Force December 04, 2020 Two U.S. Air Force B-52H Stratofortress aircraft participated in Brother’s Shield, a Colombian Air Force-led exercise, and in UNITAS LXI, an Ecuadorean Navy-led exercise in U.S. Southern Command’s Area of Responsibility, November 8, 2020.This twofold mission began well before the B-52 crews took off that morning; there have been countless teleconferences and planning meetings to coordinate the combined training exercises between the U.S. Air Force and our partner nations’ militaries.Brother’s Shield was the first mission to be completed, celebrating the Colombian Air Force’s 101st anniversary. The B-52H crews supported the Colombian Air Force Kfir fighter aircraft pilots in air-to-air interception training while developing interoperability capabilities in order to increase hemispheric security and regional stability, under NATO standards between the U.S. and Colombia.U.S. Air Force Major Angel Serna, Air Forces Southern/12th Air Force Colombia desk officer, explained that the name of the exercise, Brother’s Shield, developed from the close relationship between the U.S. Air Force and the Colombian Air Force. During this training mission, the Colombian Kfirs flew in formation with the U.S. Air Force B-52Hs in order to shield them from enemy combatants.“Anytime we have the privilege to integrate with our allies in a fighter integration or naval exercise we are excited,” said U.S. Air Force Captain Joshua Henry, 96th Bomb Squadron B-52H pilot and mission lead. “We identified a lot of similarities in the way that the Colombians conduct their intercept training and working with the UNITAS exercise proved to be very beneficial as well. Further developing our tactics, techniques, and procedures with the navy is always beneficial for us as an air player since this is not something we have the opportunity to train on a consistent basis with real time naval assets.”UNITAS is an annual naval exercise conducted in the Atlantic and Pacific waters around Central and South America. The Ecuadorean Navy hosted this year’s exercise, November 2-11, with participants from 11 countries. The B-52 crews integrated and trained with joint forces for UNITAS to include the Ecuadorean Navy to provide a simulated dynamic targeting capability for naval forces.“I haven’t worked with the Colombian or Ecuadorean militaries before, but anytime that we as a community have an opportunity to work with partner nations we always learn a lot,” Capt. Henry said. “Colombia and Ecuador were very professional and a lot of our lessons learned were developed from the planning stages.”last_img read more

Lakers’ Jeanie Buss ‘surprised’ Magic Johnson resigned … but she doesn’t blame him

first_img“It was a surprise when Magic turned in his resignation,” Buss told reporters at the NBA Awards Show. “I didn’t see that coming.”As surprising as it was, it kind of reminded me of back in 1981 when he asked to be traded after winning a championship with the Lakers because he wasn’t happy with the way the offense had changed. That led us to getting Pat Riley as our head coach.

Johnson told ESPN last month the former agent had been “backstabbing” him, which Pelinka quickly denied. Whatever happened between the two men, Buss said she is comfortable with Pelinka guiding the franchise’s future.”I’ve always had confidence in Rob, whatever the speculation is out there,” Buss said. “We don’t need outside media to validate the things that we do.
