Now PropertyShark has released their Residential Foreclosure Report for Q1 2018, and those trends toward higher foreclosure rates seem to be continuing in the new year.PropertyShark’s foreclosure report for last year revealed that the number of foreclosed New York homes hit an eight-year high in 2017. During Q1 2018, the number of new foreclosure cases climbed 31 percent year-over-year. PropertyShark reports a total of 920 new foreclosures logged in NYC during Q1, up from 702 during Q1 2017. New York recorded a higher number of foreclosed homes during Q1 than during any quarter since 2009.Breaking things down by borough, Brooklyn saw the highest increase of homes scheduled for auction in Q1, recording a 64 percent year-over-year increase. That works out to 275 homes scheduled for auction during the quarter, compared to 168 during Q1 2017—the highest number ever recorded in the borough. During Q1 2016, the number was only 79.The Bronx saw a 33 percent year-over-year increase, amounting to 117 homes headed for auction during the quarter. While the Bronx did register a year-over-year increase, its foreclosure numbers actually dropped 41 percent below their Q4 2017 totals.Following a significant spike in foreclosure activity during Q4 2017, Staten Island saw only a small increase between Q4 2017 (185 new foreclosures recorded) and Q1 2018 (189 new foreclosures recorded). However, like much of the rest of the city, Staten Island did record a whopping year-over-year increase of 226 percent.For Manhattan and Queens, the news was less dramatic. Foreclosures in Queens actually decreased 13 percent year-over-year during Q1 2018. Manhattan saw a 5 percent year-over-year decrease.You can read PropertyShark’s full Q1 2018 NYC foreclosure report by clicking here.

New report provides insight into the status of women in the arts

first_img Login/Register With: LEAVE A REPLY Cancel replyLog in to leave a comment Twitter Facebook The Ontario Arts Council (OAC) has released The status of women in the Canadian arts and cultural industries: Research review 2010-2018, a report commissioned by OAC from a research team led by Dr. Amanda Coles, a Canadian on faculty at Australia’s Deakin University.This report provides an important synthesis of existing research on the status of women in the arts in Ontario and Canada. The majority of existing research focuses on specific sectors, such as media arts/screen, or theatre, etc., rather than addressing the arts and cultural industries as a whole.The report covers six sectors: visual arts, dance, theatre, literature, music, and media arts/screen.Key Findings from the ReportEarnings and incomeResearch shows a pervasive gender-based income gap across all six sectors under review. Overall, women’s average incomes are lower than their male peers – a defining feature of work in the Canadian arts and cultural industries.Education and trainingGender inequality in the arts and cultural industries cannot be explained by the education or skill of professional female artists and cultural workers. A cross-sectoral analysis of available data on education and training clearly shows that across all six sectors, women are as highly educated as men.LeadershipWomen are well represented in administrative leadership roles in visual arts, publishing, and theatre, and in the top tier of Canadian orchestras. Executive and organizational leadership roles in the music industry are male-dominated. There is a notable shortage of data on organizational leadership in broadcasting, film and television production, the interactive digital media sector, and dance. Advertisement Women are severely under-represented in key artistic leadership roles in media arts/screen, theatre and music. In contrast, key artistic leadership roles in visual arts and publishing, such as curators and editors, are female dominated.Career and industry recognitionAcross all sectors, women’s artistic and creative works receive significantly less public visibility (for example, productions or exhibitions) and recognition (awards) than those of men.

Tech companies find more signs of Russian election activity

first_imgWASHINGTON – Major tech companies plan to tell Congress Tuesday that they have found additional evidence of Russian activity on their services surrounding the 2016 U.S. election.Facebook, for instance, says a Russian group posted more than 80,000 times on its service during and after the election, potentially reaching as many as 126 million users. The company plans to disclose these numbers to the Senate Judiciary Committee on Tuesday, according to a person familiar with the testimony. The person declined to be named because the committee has not officially released the testimony.Twitter plans to tell the same committee that it has uncovered and shut down 2,752 accounts linked to the same group, Russia’s Internet Research Agency, which is known for promoting pro-Russian government positions.That number is nearly 14 times larger than the number of accounts Twitter handed over to congressional committees three weeks ago, according to a person familiar with the matter. This person requested anonymity because they were not authorized to speak publicly about the new findings ahead of the hearing on Tuesday.And Google announced in a blog post that it found evidence of “limited” misuse of its services by the Russian group, as well as some YouTube channels that were likely backed by Russian agents.THREE HEARINGS IN TWO DAYSThe companies are set to testify at three hearings Tuesday and Wednesday as part of congressional probes of Russian election interference.Colin Stretch, Facebook’s general counsel, plans to tell the Judiciary panel that 120 pages set up by the Russian agency posted repeatedly between January 2015 and August 2017. The company estimates that roughly 29 million people were directly “served” posts in their news feeds from the agency over that time. Those posts then spread widely on Facebook, although Stretch’s prepared testimony makes clear that many of the 126 million people reached this way may not have seen the posts.These “organic” posts that appeared in users’ news feeds are distinct from more than 3,000 advertisements linked to the agency that Facebook has already turned over to congressional committees. The ads — many of which focused on divisive social issues — pointed people to the agency’s pages, where they could then like or share its material.On Twitter, the Russia-linked accounts put out 1.4 million election-related tweets from September through Nov. 15 last year — nearly half of them automated. The company also found nine Russian accounts that bought ads, most of which came from the state-backed news service Russia Today, or RT.Twitter said last week it would no longer accept ads from RT and Sputnik, another state-sponsored news outlet. It will donate the $1.9 million it has earned from RT since 2011 to support external research into political uses of Twitter.Google said that two accounts linked to the Russian group spent $4,700 on ads its platforms during the 2016 election. The company also found 18 YouTube channels likely backed by Russian agents. Those channels hosted 1,108 videos with 43 hours of material, although they racked up just 309,000 views in the U.S. between June 2015 and November 2016, Google said.PREEMPTING REGULATIONA bill unveiled earlier this month would require social media companies to keep public files of election ads and require companies to “make reasonable efforts” to make sure that foreign individuals or entities are not purchasing political advertisements in order to influence Americans.The companies haven’t commented on the proposed legislation, but say they’re at work on the problem. Last week Facebook said it will verify political ad buyers in federal elections and build transparency tools to link ads to the Facebook pages of their sponsors. Twitter has also said it will require election-related ads for candidates to disclose who is paying for them and how they are targeted.Google announced on Monday that it will also verify the identity of election-related ad buyers and identify these advertisers publicly via an ad icon. It will provide a public database of election ads detailing who purchased each one, and will publish a transparency report on election ads as well.The companies have been under constant pressure from Congress since it was first revealed earlier this year that Russians had infiltrated some of their platforms. Facebook has already spent more than $8.4 million lobbying the government this year, according to federal disclosure forms.All three firms are expected to face questions about what evidence of Russian interference they found on their services, as well as why they didn’t find it earlier. They will almost certainly do what they can to convince lawmakers that they can fix the problem on their own, without the need for regulation.BEYOND ADSThe issue goes far beyond ads. Fake news, fake events, propaganda and other misinformation spread far and wide on social media services in 2016 without the need for paid advertisements. But regulating online speech would be more difficult for U.S. lawmakers.In addition, analysts and online speech advocates have warned that policing internet election ads is not the same thing as doing so in print newspapers or on TV. Automated advertising platforms allow basically anyone with an internet account and a credit card to place an ad with little or no oversight from the companies.Facebook has said it is building machine learning tools to address this issue, but didn’t provide details.___Ortutay reported from New York.

Football Urban Meyer updates on the status of injured players in Big

Urban Meyer watches the Buckeye defense during the first quarter of the game against Tulane on Sept. 22. Ohio State won 49-6. Credit: Casey Cascaldo | Photo EditorDuring the bye week, Ohio State had some players who needed to rest up after suffering injuries in the weeks prior. Now, moving into Saturday’s game against Nebraska, head coach Urban Meyer said in Tuesday’s Big Ten Coaches Teleconference that the majority of the injured players are good to go. With a depleted defensive line, after the loss of All-American defensive end Nick Bosa, Meyer said redshirt junior defensive lineman Robert Landers will be back next week. Meyer acknowledged that even while playing through some injuries, Landers is back to being the kind of player he was last season. “(Landers) has not been the same,” Meyer said. “He had injuries all along this fall and he is one of our better players there. He is full-speed now. He is bringing that same energy he does when he is healthy.” Meyer also said sophomore offensive lineman Thayer Munford has been resting after injuring his hip, but practiced yesterday and is ready to go for the game against the Cornhuskers. After each player suffered an injury in Ohio State’s Oct. 20 loss to Purdue, Meyer said sophomore cornerback Jeffrey Okudah, redshirt junior cornerback Damon Arnette and senior wide receiver C.J. Saunders will play on Saturday. Meyer still focuses on balanced offensive attackAfter the records redshirt sophomore quarterback Dwayne Haskins broke against Purdue, completing 49-of-73 pass attempts for 470 yards and two touchdowns, Meyer said the Ohio State offense needs to go back to its 250/250 approach. The head coach said it’s something that Haskins is aware of, but the team might lean a bit more pass-heavy than usual. “With a guy like Dwayne, it might be a bit higher in one area. When you have another type of quarterback, it’s a little higher in the other area, but you have to have balance and we are experiencing that now,” Meyer said. “Dwayne knows that and he’s obviously a very smart guy. He understands the game and that has to happen.”  Even if the Ohio State offense focuses more on the passing game, Meyer said both sophomore running back J.K. Dobbins and redshirt junior running back Mike Weber are not happy with the lack of success they have been having. “They are both very frustrated, as we all are, as the offensive line is,” Meyer said. “There’s times where you have to make your own hole and plow through it and get positive yards. We worked extremely hard on that during the bye week, but frustration is a right word. They are great people and they want to do well first, for the team, but they are prideful guys. They want to rip through and get some big yards.” Meyer said that Isaiah Prince, as one of the leaders on the offensive line, has been playing well overall, saying he has done a good job leading the unit in practice. However, when asked about personnel changes in the front five after the 49-20 loss to the Boilermakers, Meyer said redshirt freshman offensive lineman Wyatt Davis has been pushing himself into the conversation for a more prominent role. “He is very close. Those are conversations that have been had,” Meyer said. “It will continue, but he is a guy that has to be one of our most improved players from the summer until now.” read more

Gilmour sets huge personal targets

first_imgChelsea starlet Billy Gilmour has set a huge target of becoming the best player in the world for himself.The Scotland youth international is the next best to come out of the country for quite some time and a lot of people believes he has what he takes to become a top player.The 17-year-old from Ardrossan who came through the system at Rangers joined Chelsea last summer, reportedly turning down moves Bayern Munich and Barcelona in the process.“That’s always been my ambition, to be the best player,” Gilmour said, as quoted by Daily Mail.“If someone is better than me, I want to be better than them.

I don’t need to get myself under pressure about that.”SFA performance director Malky Mackay is hopeful that Gilmour can make a real impact.“He’s got a lot of potential,” he said. “He’s been on our radar since he was 11 and Craig Mulholland and the academy coaches at Rangers have given him a fabulous grounding.”“He’s now taken another step – which is a very brave step to take, going down to Chelsea – and he’s hit the ground running.”last_img read more
