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

The statutory agencies in Donegal involved in the ongoing response to Covid-19 have urged people to Stay home and Stay Safe this Easter. Gardai, Council and HSE urge Donegal people to “Stay home and Stay Safe” The Chief Executive of Donegal County Council Mr John McLaughlin, asked people not to visit other households this long weekend.  “Easter is traditionally a time of celebration, for gathering together to enjoy the company of family and loved ones, but we must refrain from doing so this year to preserve the progress we have made over the past number of months.  This is such a difficult thing to do, we have all become weary of the impact of restrictions on our lives, but we must continue to protect our vulnerable, our front-line workers and one another.  This bank holiday weekend, remember public health advice, together our actions will curb the spread of Covid 19.””The vast majority of people are playing their part in helping prevent the spread of Covid-19. However, we are still finding groups gathering, house parties, etc. This in not just breaches of regulations, but it also creates a risk for those attending and everyone they come into contact with afterwards. This Easter, please stay at home and stay safe. If anyone needs assistance, I would ask them to call the Covid 19 Community Helpline.”  All the agencies worked together to co-ordinate the community response to the Covid-19 crisis for more than a year. Today, they asked the people of Donegal to Hold Firm for a little longer on the tough but necessary measures to combat this virus.Dr Anthony Breslin, Director of Public Health in the North West stated.  “As cases of Covid decrease it’s more important than ever that we all limit the number of contacts we have with others. Not only does this keep ourselves and others safe, it also reduces the possibility that we will be a close contact of someone who has Covid-19.Therefore we need to restrict our movements and we must remain vigilant to protect ourselves and our loved ones.  We have seen some outbreaks following parties and this has to stop.  The more risks people take and the more people they meet can have a really significant impact on the spread of Covid 19.  This is particularly important if people  socialise over the Easter break.  If you take a risk today, tomorrow, or over the next few days, then you are taking that risk on behalf of anyone you see. Think about the impact that being diagnosed with Covid-19 would have on those close to you.” Chief Superintendent for the Donegal Garda Division, and Chair of the North West Major Emergency Management Interagency Group Terry McGinn said”An Garda Síochána is appealing to the public this Easter to continue to follow the public health guidelines by staying home and staying safe. We as individuals have the power to protect ourselves and our communities. The best way of keeping safe is to stay home. If you are going out, please only undertake necessary journeys and exercise within 5km of your home. An Garda Síochána’s high visibility checkpoints continue throughout the region. This will also include patrols at local amenity sites.

Inaugural Waterloo Fest Boasts 3 Nights Of SCI, First-Ever JRAD Texas Show, & More

first_imgWaterloo Music Festival, a brand-new jam music and camping festival, will celebrate its inaugural event on September 7th through 9th at Carson Creek Ranch in Austin, Texas. Waterloo Music Festival has tapped a stand-out lineup for its debut, including three nights of the String Cheese Incident, Joe Russo’s Almost Dead’s first-ever performance in Texas, and sets from Railroad Earth, The Motet, Boombox, TAUK, and Marco Benevento, with more artists to be announced in the coming weeks.Carson Creek Ranch is located conveniently just ten minutes from downtown Austin, boasting 60 acres of Pecan tree-lined campgrounds and scenic views of the Colorado River. The festival draws its name from its host city of Austin, Texas—as explained in a press release, Austin was originally incorporated as “Waterloo,” given the city’s prime location along the Colorado River—and is inspired by Austin’s reputation as a premier musical city.Presented by Heard Presents, Havin’ A Ball Productions, and Unknown Entertainment, the three promoters have a longstanding history of bringing music of all genres to Texas while supporting local bands. Given the high demand for jam events in Austin—evidenced by String Cheese Incident’s and many other renowned jam acts’ consistently sold-out, multi-night runs in the Texas capital—the promoters hope that Waterloo Music Festival will become a staple event in the Texas and jam community.Briggs Mitchell, co-founder of Waterloo Music Festival, explained in a press release:With Waterloo, we set out to honor and celebrate the heritage and spirit of Austin with world-class music inspired by our roots and a weekend-long outdoor experience that will make our city proud. … We couldn’t think of a better place to call home than on the banks of the Colorado River, and to us, nothing brings together the creativity and soul of Austin more than three nights of The String Cheese Incident accompanied by an eclectic mix of artists across the jam music spectrum. We believe Austin deserves this festival and we are honored to host what we believe will become a legendary celebration for years to come.Tickets for Waterloo Music Festival go on-sale on Friday, May 11th, at 10 a.m., with a limited number of pre-sale tickets available—pre-sale ticket pricing includes $99 3-day GA passes, $199 3-day VIP passes, and camping packages starting at $70 (in addition to festival admission). At the close of the pre-sale period, Waterloo Music Festival tickets will rise to $119 3-day GA passes and $249 3-day VIP passes, with car camping available with the purchase of an additional $49 camping vehicle pass.The inaugural Waterloo Music Festival—scheduled for September 7th through 9th at Austin, Texas’ Carson Creek Ranch—will announce the full music lineup and other key festival details in coming weeks.

House bill takes up the use of retired judges

first_img December 1, 2001 Regular News House bill takes up the use of retired judges In the midst of a pending Florida Supreme Court case on the constitutionality of courts employing senior judges, the Florida House Judicial Oversight Committee has approved a bill by Rep. Sally Heyman, D-North Miami Beach, which changes the guidelines for their use. At present, Florida statutes require that for temporary judges to receive compensation, they may not have been removed from office as the result of an election or merit retention defeat. Heyman’s bill, which was unanimously approved by the committee, changes the statutes to allow the Supreme Court chief justice to appoint such retired justices or judges, provided they have served on the bench for at least 10 years. However, retired judges who were approved for service prior to July 1, 2002 — the date the bill would take effect — may continue serving even if they did not sit on the bench for the minimum time period. Current Florida statutes also require that retired judges not practice law. Heyman’s bill would allow the judges to continue their law practice, with limitations set forth by the Supreme Court. Rep. Heyman’s bill must now pass through the House Council for Smarter Government in order to reach a full vote in the House. The Supreme Court may make the issue moot, however, when it addresses the constitutionality of using retired judges in February, based on a medical malpractice case brought before the court. The plaintiff in the case alleges that allowing courts to use retired judges is unconstitutional, because citizens have a right to have their case presided over by a “duly elected” judge. Some attorneys in Broward County, where the case originated, argue the local court system relies too frequently on retired judges. Broward Chief Judge Dale Ross has denied the allegations and said that senior judges were elected before their retirement, and there is no constitutional requirement that they be elected in the county where they serve. Heyman’s statutory changes do not address the issue of location. The Supreme Court determined the case “demonstrates a preliminary basis for relief” and asked Broward officials to respond to the plaintiff’s argument by November 19.

Sanchez blames Man Utd flop on lack of game time

first_imgShare on: WhatsApp Instead, in his first full season at Old Trafford, Jose Mourinho was sacked and replaced by Ole Gunnar Solskjaer as United finished sixth and as close to the relegation zone on points as they were to champions City.But despite winning no trophies, Sanchez has no regrets over joining United rather than City.“I’m very happy I went to Manchester United. I’ve always said that. It’s the club that’s won the most in England,” added Sanchez.“When I went to Arsenal it was fantastic — I was happy there — but United were growing at the time, they were buying players to win something.“I wanted to join them and win everything. I don’t regret going there.” London, United Kingdom | AFP | Alexis Sanchez believes his failure to shine in a dismal 18 months at Manchester United prior to joining Inter Milan on loan was due to a lack of opportunities.The Chilean moved to Italy on a 10-month loan deal last week with United still paying a large chunk of his reported £400,000 ($484,000) a week wages.Sanchez failed to live up to the expectations United had when signing him from Arsenal on a four-and-a-half year contract in January 2018, scoring just five times in 45 appearances for United.However, he started just 31 of 77 games the Red Devils played during his time there and played the full 90 minutes on just 13 occasions.“I’ve always said to my friends: I want to play,” Sanchez told the BBC.“If they would let me play I’ll do my best. Sometimes I’d play 60 minutes then I wouldn’t play the next game — and I didn’t know why.”Sanchez was signed with United second in the Premier League and aiming to close the gap on local rivals Manchester City, who were also interested in reuniting Sanchez with his former boss at Barcelona Pep Guardiola.center_img FILE PHOTO: Alexis Sanchezlast_img read more
