The home price expectation was broad-based, though it was most pronounced in the West and Northeast. Despite the increase, the median home price expectation remains below the series average, according to the New York Fed.The median one-year ahead expected earnings growth reversed two months of decline by jumping up to 2.5 percent in February, the level it was at for most of last year. Though the increase was broad-based, the respondents with a high school degree or less saw the most pronounced increase. The results of the February SCE indicated that expectations in the labor market were more positive—the mean number of respondents who said they thought the unemployment rate would be higher a year from now declined from 38.1 percent in January to 37.9 percent in February. Also, the mean probability of losing one’s job in the next 12 months ticked slightly downward to 13.9 percent.Consumers’ expectations of their finances jumped in February—the median expected household income growth rose from 2.2 percent to 2.5 percent over-the-month, driven by older, less educated, and lower income respondents, according to the New York Fed. Despite the increase, it remained below 2015 levels.Click here to view the entire SCE for February 2016.center_img Data Provider Black Knight to Acquire Top of Mind 2 days ago The Best Markets For Residential Property Investors 2 days ago  Print This Post The Best Markets For Residential Property Investors 2 days ago Subscribe Tagged with: Consumer Expectations House Prices Household Income New York Fed Survey of Consumer Expectations Servicers Navigate the Post-Pandemic World 2 days ago Demand Propels Home Prices Upward 2 days ago Previous: Fannie Mae and Freddie Mac Make First Contribution to Housing Trust Fund Next: Counsel’s Corner: Digging Deeper Into the 9th Circuit Court Decision on GSEs Governmental Measures Target Expanded Access to Affordable Housing 2 days ago Sign up for DS News Daily Governmental Measures Target Expanded Access to Affordable Housing 2 days agolast_img read more

Coaches Lament on Impact of AFN Conflict

first_imgIkhaobomeh urged those involved in the conflict to dialogue and resolve issues in the best interest of the nation.The coach said that quick resolution of the conflict would encourage athletes to put in their best in preparation and participation .According to him, concflicts will not encourage sports development.“The crisis in AFN can affect Nigeria’s preparation for Tokyo 2020 Olympics.“If truly money was released but not given to athletes, it will affect the psyche of the athletes and their preparation for the Olympics,” he said.“What some of our athletes experienced at the All African Games hosted by Nigeria in 2003, killed their passion for running for the nation“The issue has always been the welfare of the athletes,” Ikhaobomeh said.He, however, commended the AFN Board for good performance.“The current board, for me, scores 55 per cent performance in 2019, though lack of funds affected Nigeria’s performance in major international events.“There is need for the board to put its house in order to do more,” the coach said.Coach Tunde Suleiman told NAN that AFN experiencing a conflict few months to Olympics would do harm for the nation’s participation in the Olympics.Suleiman called on the board to resolve the conflict fast.“I believe this is a needless crisis in AFN; they just need to drop ego and work together, it is a collective thing, everyone is important.“In the interest of coaches and athletes, we all need to move on and think of how our performance in Tokyo 2020 will be better than those in previous Olympics.“That is my opinion; when most countries’ preparations are at the peak for the games, we are here fighting one another and forgeting the interest of the nation and the athletes,” he said.NAN reports that two factions are laying claim to the leadership of AFN.One group is led by Ibrahim Gusau, while the other group is led by Olamide Gorge.The 2020 Summer Olympic Games will start from July 24 and end on Aug. 9 in Tokyo.Share this:FacebookRedditTwitterPrintPinterestEmailWhatsAppSkypeLinkedInTumblrPocketTelegram Some athletics coaches have expressed worry that conflict in the Athletics Federation of Nigeria (AFN), if not resolved fast, might affect Nigeria’s preparation for and participation in the Tokyo 2020.Some of the coaches, who spoke to the News Agency of Nigeria (NAN) in Lagos, said that parties involved in the conflict should consider the interests of the nation and the athletes.Coach Osagie Ikhaobomeh appealed that the conflict rocking the federation should be resolved fast to ensure Nigeria would do its best at the Olympics.last_img read more

Caregiver Mini Series: 444 Days in the First Year (Part 2)

first_imgThe Waiting RoomThere I sat on the cool leather couch staring out of the large panoramic glass window that looked out into the hallway of the waiting room.Occasionally the door would open with a nurse, volunteer, or a fellow waiting room family member coming in or out.  Quiet conversation could be heard throughout the waiting room, as I continued to sit in my new ‘home away from home.’I would watch a little T.V. or watch the hands of the clock continuously chase each other around and around.  “Is this room getting smaller?”  I asked myself.   I would pray, “God please give me strength because I don’t know how much longer I can possibly sit here.”Some days I just wanted to leave, I needed a break, a walk, anything to get some fresh air.  I just wanted to be anywhere but within the confines of that waiting room.Caregiver’s Advice to Professionals and Military FamiliesThe “waiting game” is something most military families are accustomed to.  We become numb to the geographical separations we endure, and learn to hope for the best while expecting the worst.  Or so we think, or so I thought…I am not sure I could have ever prepared myself for what would prove to be the wait of my life–the unknown of whether or not I would get to see my service member today or if he would even make it to a new day. I was trapped in a waiting game.I can distinctly recall the myriad of conflicting feelings I felt as I sat day-in and day-out, trying my best to patiently wait for the next time I would be allowed to go back and see my service member.  Watching others pass through the halls, the changing shifts of doctors, nurses and volunteer workers.  I remember thinking on more then one occasion, “I just want to leave”.  I had no real plans of truly going anywhere, I just wanted to be anywhere but right there in that moment.  Of course those feelings were always quickly replaced by feelings of guilt, shame, and embarrassment.  “How selfish”, I remember thinking. How dare I wish to be anywhere else other than there waiting on my Soldier?No one ever told me these feelings were okay.  No one ever told me that I could leave, take “a breather”, a break from it all, and not have to feel guilty.  Sure, people would say, “you have to take care of yourself,” but what did that even mean?  So there I would sit, embarrassed, scared and extremely anxious as I continued to wait.  Watching the clock until the minutes turned to hours and the hours into days.It seems as if these types of feelings are seldom spoke of, and I cannot help but to reflect upon my own personal experience and wonder why as professionals we are not more aware of how it is not just the service member who suffers.  Expectations of recovery should at least in some ways revolve around the wounded family as a whole.  Just as the wounded service member begins immediate treatment, perhaps the family as a whole could benefit from some type of immediate, hands on (i.e., outside of online or web-based groups or forums) family therapy, or support group, or at the very least information on where to find such support.I was fortunate enough to have an amazing support group.  I had family with me at all times, and I became very close to another wounded family who arrived only a few weeks before us.  The waiting room volunteer’s whom we were blessed with were amazing, and the doctors and nurses who worked with my husband everyday were more than willing to listen to any concerns I had.  However my worry is that not every family will be this fortunate, not every family will have such a strong support group.   As professionals, I think it is our duty to educate ourselves on how to help wounded service members in the most holistic way possible, beginning with the family members who wait.Missed Part I of the series?

GoPro Unveils the Camera We Wanted Four Years Ago

first_imgGoPro released their original Digital HERO camera in 2006. In 2015, we finally get the smaller GoPro we’ve been waiting for. Here are the details.After years of GoPro videos taking us to places unseen, we’ve come to the point where GoPro videos are underwhelming.The GoPro Hero4 Session is exactly the GoPro we wanted in 2011 when the GoPro HD HERO2 was released. A smaller camera with the same punch. GoPro has (allegedly) been working on a smaller cube camera since 2011, but they have already since been passed in size by similar action cameras like the Polaroid Cube. The Cube came out last year, and, with a $99 price tag, it was aimed towards average consumers.Starting at $399.99, the HERO4 Session offers one button control video rates at 1440p30, 1080p60 and 720p100. Still photos actually take a step back to 8MP with 10fps bursts. The current full size HERO4 offers 12MP. When purchasing the HERO4 Session, you can choose different mount options with the Standard or Surf package. Working in the Session’s favor is the fact that it’s the first fully waterproof GoPro camera. A separate waterproof housing is no longer needed. The HERO4 Session also has two microphones. One on the front of the camera and one on the back. When filming in windy conditions, the camera will automatically switch to the mic best-suited for capturing audio.GoPro mentioned that the Session will mount on the company’s upcoming drone, which should be coming out next year. Other drone manufactures, like DJI, have already attempted to ditch GoPro cameras in favor of their own cameras. DJI introduced their 4K camera and gimbal with the Inspire 1. GoPro certainly has come catching up to do. It’s easy to assume that GoPro may have been feeling pressure from partners to finally release a smaller camera. The National Hockey League partnered with GoPro in January 2015. If they truly seek their goal of referees (and someday players) wearing the cameras in game, we are still a ways off from seeing that happen.Overall, the HERO4 Session is a much needed update to the GoPro line. The camera should help them stay atop the action camera market.Check back here on the PremiumBeat blog for more news about filmmaking, editing, and motion graphics. Have thoughts on the latest from GoPro? Have you moved to other compact cameras? Let us know in the comments below.last_img read more

Bookies will lose millions if McGregor knocks out Mayweather

first_img“We don’t mind a large decision on a big spectacle like this,” Bogdanovich said. “It gets people in our books.” WATCH: Streetboys show off slick dance moves in Vhong Navarro’s wedding Vaccaro said his sports book stood to lose about $400,000 on a McGregor win, but that was balanced off a bit by a bettor who put $100,000 Wednesday night on Mayweather. His book also took an $880,000 bet on Mayweather earlier that would pay off just $160,000 if he wins.There have also been big Mayweather bets at the MGM Grand, including a $500,000 wager on Wednesday. MGM Resorts oddsmaker Jay Rood, though, said the sheer volume of McGregor bets is overwhelming the big Mayweather bet.Rood said his books have taken 6,700 bets on McGregor and only 300 on Mayweather. The average bet on McGregor is $125, while the average for Mayweather is $4,000.If McGregor wins, Rood said MGM will be a big loser and the state will suffer its biggest single event loss ever.“We’re all in the same boat,” Rood said. “Anything McGregor one to four rounds is pretty bad. Any McGregor knockout is not going to be good.”So far, the betting has been unusually active around town, bringing predictions that the volume could set records. Bookmakers say as the fight draws closer the heaviest influx of money will come, especially on Saturday.The news is not all bad for oddsmakers, who have struggled to make lines for a fight that has no precedent. Most believe Mayweather is an easy winner and should be favored by a much bigger margin, but have had to cut odds to try and balance their books.Though an overwhelming majority of the tickets are on McGregor, a lot of books have more money wagered on Mayweather. Since bookmakers will have to pay out a lot less to those betting Mayweather, they will likely score big if Mayweather wins as expected.“We’re just kind of going along balancing and are in great shape win on both sides, no matter who wins,” said Johnny Avello, oddsmaker at the Wynn resort. “A lot of guys are putting down $125,000 or so to win whatever on Mayweather so we’re high on him now.”Even if McGregor wins and the sports books lose big, all is not lost. Bettors like to be reminded they can win, and the extra betting on football generated by McGregor bettors at the books will help ease some of the pain.

If he wins early as he has promised, the losses would be even worse.The big bettors are putting their money on Mayweather, who is 49-0 as a pro. But so many McGregor fans are betting small amounts that the betting slips at William Hill were 18-1 in the Irish fighter’s favor. LOOK: Venues for 2019 SEA Games “This isn’t professional money, just the regular Joe,” Bogdanovich said. “The butcher and the barber are putting their $100 on McGregor and it’s added up.”The action is reflected in the odds, which bookmakers adjust either way as money comes in on the two fighters. Bookmakers have been lowering the odds steadily since the fight was announced, but even that hasn’t stopped the deluge of McGregor bets.A fight that began with Mayweather an 11-1 favorite is now 5-1 or even less in some sports books. Even that hasn’t stopped McGregor supporters from lining up at the betting windows to hand over even more cash.They’re backing a longshot, hoping that the payoff will be huge.“There’s plenty of money on a guy who has never been in a boxing ring,” said Jimmy Vaccaro, oddsmaker at the South Point resort. “It’s uncharted waters and that’s what makes it so interesting.”ADVERTISEMENT Brace for potentially devastating typhoon approaching PH – NDRRMC PH football teams finish fourth in SEA Games Read Next UPLB exempted from SEA Games class suspension View comments Floyd Mayweather Jr., izquierda, y Conor McGregor posan para fotógrafos durante una conferencia de prensa el miércoles, 23 de agosto del 2017, en Las Vegas.

‘Attacked’ for sporting tricolour, did model Gehna Vashisht plan it for publicity?

first_imgA model and an aspiring Bollywood actor Gehna Vashisht was assaulted in Mumbai by some unknown social activists as she allegedly teamed up her bikini top with a tricolour wrapped around her waist.However, the incident that took place on Monday has now got a shocking twist as it turns out that the entire sequence was staged and the protesting activists were allegedly paid to attack Gehna.On the day of the supposed attack on Gehna, her publicist rounded up a few people loitering outside Oshiwara police station, including a woman identified as Shantabai Pawar, who lustily protested and even threw a few stones for a payment of Rs 300 for 5 minutes.The visuals accessed by Headlines Today show Shantabai and another man giving direction to the gathered crowd. Gehna’s car comes into view but zooms away as there were not enough people yet. The woman was heard talking to the man, who asks the starlet to come back a few minutes later when more protesters arrive.The group then composes itself. Gehna’s car returns to the spot a few minutes later and stops in front of the protestors without anybody obstructing its path. On cue, the protestors start hurling stones at the car. One man who breaks the rear windshield instinctively smacks his forehead in regret.Gehna, instead of staying put and driving away, which should have been her natural response had the attack been real, got out to meet the group.Shantabai then stepped forward and hectored her for violating the dignity of the national flag. After a while, Gehna got back into her car, making a show of wiping the blood from her chin where the stone had grazed her.Earlier, the little-known model had done a photo-shoot wearing a bikini and the national flag wrapped around her waist.The question now comes is who did Gehna shoot for. Was it meant from the beginning to be a publicity stunt? It could be mentioned that the donning of the national flag as a piece of clothing is punishable under Prevention of Insult to National Honour Act of 1971.advertisementlast_img read more

Motor rally to promote road route between India and Russia

first_imgKolkata, Jul 3 (PTI) A friendship rally covering four countries and spanning more than 20,000 kilometres will be conducted in September in a bid to revive the International North-South Transport Corridor. Supported by the Embassy of Russian Federation and Government of India, the rally will be flagged off in New Delhi and will traverse through Iran, Azerbaijan and Russia. About 80 participants in each of the three phases will criss cross the continents in 22 Mahindra SUVs, Praveen Chandra Bhanjdeo, president of the Kalinga Motor Sports the organisers of the rally told PTI here. This is being organised to celebrate 70 years of diplomatic relationship between India and Russia and the 70th year of Indian Independence and is an outcome of Prime Minister Narendra Modis visit to Russia in June where there was a major push for the much-delayed INSTC and other connectivity channels. “The event will trail the International North South Transport Corridor between India and Russia and will significantly revive the trade opportunities,” Bhanjdeo, the founder of the Kalinga Motor Sports said. A former sports minister of Odisha government and a sitting Biju Janata Dal MLA, Bhanjdeo said present crisis in the wake of Tehran attacks last month had delayed the rally which was originally planned to be flagged off by the Prime Minister on August 15. “But we are almost done with the recce and after its over in a few days we will finalise the dates,” he said. In phase I, the rally will travel till Kandla by road and from there the vehicles will be shipped to Bandar Abbas, Iran by sea. “The participants will fly to Bandar Abbas where they resume the rally and drive till Moscow covering a distance of 6120 kilometres and 980 nautical miles. There will be cultural exchanges along the route,” he said In phase II, the rallyists will return by a shorter route to Kandla port and the final phase will begin from Jamnagar and travel across the length and breadth of the country in its 8159-km journey before being flagged down in New Delhi. “We have in the past conducted rally across the South Asian countries like Myanmar, Thailand, Bangladesh, Nepal but this will be an all new challenge and something that will open up opportunities,” he signed off.

Monday morning, and in just a few hours, they’ll make their way to the White House to officially be congratulated by President Barack Obama on winning the inaugural College Football Playoff. The leader of the free world may, however, want to make sure he has an extra body guard on staff before they arrive.OSU running back Ezekiel Elliott and his teammates enjoy trolling people when they’re live on television, using a move called “salmoning.” Basically, the way we understand it, the perpetrator moves his hand back and forth to mimic a salmon swimming, before poking or tickling the subject right at the end.
