The last game will only be of academic interest for the team that fails to save its interest at the Wankhede Stadium today (Wednesday).Kings XI Punjab has squandered its position of advantage with a series of three consecutive defeats. For Mumbai Indians it has been a topsy-turvy quest to defend the IPL title – from the auction to their last tie, the team is let down the most by its biggest investment for the season.

The struggling captain seldom succeeds to get the best result from his team. That has been the story of high profile Mumbai Indians this IPL season.Among the two top hits in the IPL Moneyball overall points and the IPL 2018 Auction table, Rohit has been one of the biggest mishits of the season – not just for the Mumbai Indians but also for the league.A mere 207 runs from 12 outings and 291 points on the IPL Moneyball Impact Points neither justify his reputation as a batsman, position as the team captain nor his ₹15 crore salary deal with the IPL Mumbai franchisee. He is one of the only two crorepaties in the IPL career revenues with total earnings of ₹101.60 crore rupees. Chennai Super Kings captain Mahendra Singh Dhoni tops the chart with ₹107.84 crore IPL career salaries.These disappointing numbers put the Mumbai Indian captain in the fifth position on the IPL Impact Points even in his own dressing room. Surya Kumar Yadav, Hardik Pandya, Krunal Pandya and Nitish Rana are better placed to have kept the Blue and Golden team’s hopes alive.If Mumbai is let down by their best prospect, rivals Kings XI Punjab have been given the best value for money by their top investment KL Rahul, the ₹11 crore acquisition for the season. The wicketkeeper-batsman is placed only behind Delhi Daredevils’ Rishabh Pant on the IPL Moneyball Rank with 588 impact points for 558 runs, eight catches, one stumping and run out.If the Mumbai Indians are let down by their best bet Rohit, for Kings XI Punjab Rahul has failed to get the desired support. Rahul’s fellow opener Chris Gayle is the next best KXIP player with a 19th position on the IPL Moneyball Impact Rank. Then comes promising Karun Nair in the 29th position.It is ‘now or never’ also for Rohit and Rahul to keep their hopes alive in IPL 2018. KXIP have come this far on a strong show by Rahul. MI are in this situation on weak performance by Rohit. The showing of the two players will be crucial for the teams set for the battle at the Wankhede Stadium later today (Wednesday).

The students were tasked with building a brand for food products that they were already growing or cooking as part of the Food for Life scheme.

Rasmea Odeh under attack; Defend her Nov. 4 in Detroit!

first_imgNew York City, Oct. 20. Support for Rasmea Odeh.WW photo: Anne PrudenWorkers World received a statement from the Rasmea Defense Committee, which we publish here:Judge Gershwin Drain handed down a series of outrageous and unjust decisions, Oct 27–28, in the case of revered Palestinian American leader Rasmea Odeh. The government is going all out to railroad Rasmea to jail and deport her. There was nothing fair about her being indicted on trumped up immigration charges in the first place. The recent rulings by Judge Drain indicate that there will be nothing fair about Rasmea’s trial either.Determined and collective action by those of us who yearn for justice, and civil and human rights, is imperative. We must fill the streets around the courthouse in Detroit, pack the courtroom during the trial and organize demonstrations around the country.  If there is to be a measure of justice in this case, we are the ones who must provide it.In the late 1960s, Rasmea Odeh was jailed by the Israeli occupiers of Palestine, where she was tortured and raped. She has spent the past 20 years in the U.S., making huge contributions to not only the Arab community of Chicagoland, but also the immigrant rights, racial justice, women’s rights and many other movements. She is being victimized for a second time in Detroit.Judge Drain agreed that Rasmea’s assertion that she faced torture and sexual abuse at the hands of her Israeli captors is “credible,” and then contradicted himself and ruled it cannot be brought up in the course of her trial — even though this was at the heart of her defense. Her attorneys had planned to call an expert witness to the stand, but now will not be allowed to. Clinical psychologist Dr. Mary Fabri, who has decades of experience working with torture survivors, would have testified that an error Rasmea allegedly made in filling out immigration forms (the basis for the charge against her) was the result of post-traumatic stress disorder.Instead, Judge Drain will allow the prosecution to use documents provided by the Israelis as evidence in the case, even though these documents are the products of Israeli military courts and a “legal” system that routinely uses torture. He has even gone so far as to rule that when Rasmea testifies, she can only address issues that the prosecution agrees to allow.No fair-minded person can accept any of this. That is why we have to go all out for Tuesday, Nov. 4, in Detroit.Rasmea Odeh has devoted her entire life to making this world a better place. The U.S. government wants to criminalize those that stand up for Palestine. We cannot allow this to happen. We do not know how long Rasmea’s trial will last, but due to the extreme limits that Judge Drain has placed on the scope of the trial, we are urging supporters to prioritize attending the first week: Tuesday, Nov. 4, through Friday, Nov. 7.Pack the courtroom! Don’t let them win!See Facebook page at tinyurl.com/oqqoht8.FacebookTwitterWhatsAppEmailPrintMoreShare thisFacebookTwitterWhatsAppEmailPrintMoreShare thislast_img read more

West Odessa ranked as ‘tax-friendly for retirees’

first_imgMost Tax Friendly Places for Retirees. ECISD undergoing ‘equity audit’ Pinterest 2021 SCHOOL HONORS: Permian High School SmartAsset map Home Local News West Odessa ranked as ‘tax-friendly for retirees’ A recent study by SmartAsset ranked the most tax-friendly communities in Texas for retirees, and West Odessa was the second-highest on the list.West Odessa came in a close second behind Center, Texas which had a slightly lower property tax rate at .95 percent compared to West Odessa’s 1.08 percent. The study was conducted by looking at how each city’s tax policies would impact a retiree with a $50,000 income, receiving $15,000 from Social Security, $10,000 from a private pension, $15,000 from retirement savings and $10,000 in wages.County Auditor David Austin said West Odessa is so tax-friendly because there is no sales tax for purchases made outside of Odessa and Goldsmith city limits, whether they reside in West Odessa or not.West Odessans still pay an estimate of $981 per year in state sales tax. The study determined the sales tax burden of each community by estimating that 35 percent of take-home pay after tax is spent on taxable goods. They then multiplied the average sales tax rate for a community by the household income minus income tax, then multiplying that number by 35 percent to estimate the sales tax paid.Ector County Precinct 1 Commissioner Eddy Shelton said the tax-friendliness of West Odessa is something he would like to change.“The problem with being the second-most tax-friendly is they don’t receive the benefits that they need,” Shelton said. “They’re lacking in road repairs and infrastructure, they’re lacking in fire rescue protection, they’re lacking in deputies patrolling the area. That’s the price you pay for being the tax-friendliest area.”Shelton added that he would change the current tax system to bring in more money for the county through the implementation of a county assistance district, which county residents will get to vote on this November.The assistance district would levy an additional sales tax of 1.25 cents per dollar onto Ector County residents outside the city limits of Odessa and Goldsmith, should voters approve the proposal.County officials estimate the sales tax would raise around $15 million a year, more than a quarter of the county’s $59 million expenditure budget.“The thing with the assistance district is it’s not necessarily the residents who are paying these taxes,” Shelton said. “It’s anybody who does any business in that area. People just driving through on those roads who stop and make a purchase help pay for the road they drove on.”More Information Twitter Facebook By admin – June 21, 2018 Pinterest WhatsApp WhatsApp OC employee of the year always learning Previous articleDAILY OIL PRICE: June 21Next articleOdessa oilman appointed to University Lands Advisory Board admin RELATED ARTICLESMORE FROM AUTHOR Twitter Local News West Odessa ranked as ‘tax-friendly for retirees’ Facebook Virgin Coco MojitoCreamy Fruit SaladTexas Fried ChickenPowered By 10 Sec Mama’s Deviled Eggs NextStay last_img read more

The industry will find out on Tuesday, November 22, when NAR publishes its October existing-home sales report.“There’s hope the leap in sales to first-time buyers can stick through the rest of the year and into next spring,” NAR Chief Economist Lawrence Yun said. “The market fundamentals—primarily consistent job gains and affordable mortgage rates—are there for the steady rise in first-timers needed to finally reverse the decline in the homeownership rate.”Inventory remains an issue, however.“Inventory has been extremely tight all year and is unlikely to improve now that the seasonal decline in listings is about to kick in,” Yun said. “Unfortunately, there won’t be much relief from new home construction, which continues to be grossly inadequate in relation to demand.”This week’s scheduleTuesday, November 22Existing-home Sales for October 2016, NAR, 10 a.m. ESTWednesday, November 23Home Price Index for September 2016, FHFA, 9 a.m. ESTNew Home Sales for October 2016, HUD/Census Bureau, 10 a.m. ESTThursday, November 24Thanksgivingcenter_img Home / Daily Dose / The Week Ahead: Prices for GSE Guaranteed Homes Rise Higher FHFA House Price Index National Association of Realtors.

Preparing for Natural Disasters: An Industry Perspective

first_img Demand Propels Home Prices Upward 2 days ago Demand Propels Home Prices Upward 2 days ago Sign up for DS News Daily Borrowers DIMONT Fannie Mae FEMA Five Brothers Asset Management Homes HOUSING industry Lending mortgage Properties Servicers 2018-07-25 Radhika Ojha  Print This Post What can the mortgage and servicing industry do to be better prepared for when a natural disaster strikes? On Wednesday, the Five Star Institute’s Disaster Preparedness Summit focused on answering this question with participants strategizing best practices for servicers for future disaster response. The day began by looking at how the industry and the government could work together during a natural disaster and how could latest technology like drone tech be better leveraged to respond faster and more accurately. In his welcome remarks, Denis Brosnan, CEO, DIMONT said that in the event of a disaster, everything that servicers did, from making sure that the collateral was protected, to ensuring robust communications and that repairs were done quickly, was not only in the business interest of servicers but also in the interest of the borrowers. The interactive sessions during the summit fostered discussions around the lessons from the disasters of 2017 as well as an outlook for the 2018 disaster areas. Through industry and personal anecdotes, the speakers and the audience worked towards meeting on common ground as an industry to prepare for natural disasters.While Julie Lindley, VP Property Preservation, Corporate Broker, at REO Management Solutions kicked off the proceedings with an interactive session reviewing the 2017 disasters through industry and personal anecdotes, Melissa Sassine, AVP, Beal Bank stressed on the use of technology and amendments to fee structures for REO properties during the second session on the outlook for 2018 disaster areas. During his address on the need of guidelines on how to service loans in impacted areas, Oscar Posadas, VP Wells Fargo said that the industry as a whole needed to come together for a common playbook to implement and understand information to initiate appropriate actions.The keynote speaker of the day, Eraina Perrin, Private Sector Liaison at FEMA gave the government’s point of view on disaster management while giving an overview of how FEMA collaborated with the private sector throughout the disaster lifecycle.During the Q&A thereafter, she threw the floor open to share industry best practices to help FEMA understand opportunities where they could partner with servicers for a more efficient and effective response during and after a disaster.Two key points of note that were highlighted during these sessions were the need for more effective communications and using new technology tools to help servicers reach out to borrowers and assess damages more efficiently. Communication, in fact, was at the center of discussion during the last two sessions. While Timika Cole, SVP, U.S. Bank gave a deeper insight into how open lines of communications strengthened the relationship between servicers and customers, Robert Chandler, Ph.D., Professor of Communication, Lipscomb University took the audience through the four stages of communication to effectively predict, prepare, plan, and perform communications to reach out to the victims after a natural disaster. Hosted by DIMONT, and Five Brothers Asset Management Solutions the invitation-only Summit brought together representatives from the mortgage servicing industry along with government representatives from Fannie Mae and FEMA to collaborate on responding effectively during and after a natural disaster.The summit was co-hosted by Auction.com, Apex Asset Management Group, ArkForecast, Cyprexx, DLS Servicing Consultants, Laudan Properties, Mortgage Contracting Services, Vacant Property Security, RES.NET, and WeatherCheck.
