About Author: Seth Welborn The Best Markets For Residential Property Investors 2 days ago Related Articles May 21, 2019 1,978 Views The black homeownership rate is not vastly different now than what it was when the 1968 Fair Housing Act became law, according to an article by economist John Wake in Forbes. Wake notes that black homeownership increased by 20% from 1950 to 1970, before housing discrimination was outlawed. Since the Act, however, the rate has remained flat. Wake offers some possible explanations. Wake notes that, as a form of compromise, the Fair Housing Act did not include strong enforcement powers. “Just four months after the Fair Housing Act was signed into law, the Housing and Urban Development Act of 1968 was signed into law,” Wake said. “It included the soon to be infamous Section 235 program from FHA that let lower-income people who couldn’t qualify for other mortgages get these new subsidized mortgages with down payments as low as $200 and subsidized, below-market interest rates as low as 1%.”On top of a lower homeownership rate, black and hispanic neighborhoods have also experienced a higher rate of foreclosure, on average, especially in the years following the financial crisis. A recent report from Zillow stated that, based on the gap in housing between communities of color and white communities, homes in black and Hispanic neighborhoods are 2 and 2.5-times more likely to experience foreclosures than those in white communities, respectively.What has led to the flat black homeownership rate, even in recent times? According to Wake, the answer is an “inelastic supply,” over-stretched homeowners, high foreclosure neighborhoods, and what Wake calls a “Super Slo-Mo Feedback Loop.” “Sometimes things happen so fast they’re hard to see. With real estate, sometimes things happen so slow they’re hard to see,” Wake says.Bridging the Black Homeownership GapA recent report by the Urban Institute suggested five possible solutions to help increase homeownership rates among African-Americans. According to the report, bridging this gap will require several approaches:Advancing policy solutions at a local levelTackling housing supply constraints and affordabilityPromoting an equitable and accessible housing finance systemOutreach and counseling for renters and mortgage-ready millennialsA focus on sustainable homeownership and preservationEarlier this year, the American Mortgage Diversity Council (AMDC) also presented a webinar delving into the topic, entitled “The State of Housing in Black America.” During that webinar, Charmaine Brown, Director, External Outreach and Engagement, Office of Minority and Women Inclusion at Fannie Mae, pointed out that “African-American homeownership rates are the same as it used to be in 1968, whereas the number of incarcerations in the community as well as the wealth gap between black and white families tripled between 1968-2016.”Click here to view that webinar.

Seventy years and still going

first_img Seventy years and still going Skip W.O. Sanders and his wife Irene have been married for 70 years and say they owe it all to walking in love every day.MESSENGER PHOTO/JAINE TREADWELLAsk the Rev. W.O. Sanders of Goshen what it’s like to be married to the same woman for 70 years and his reply will be that he couldn’t imagine not being married to his wife, Irene, for all those years.The couple celebrated their 70th wedding anniversary in October and he said, in the beginning, they were an unlikely couple.“Irene was from Little Rock, Arkansas and I lived on a dirt road farm in Pike County,” Sanders said. “The odds were probably one in a million of us meeting.” Sponsored Content Book Nook to reopen You Might Like BE MINE (PHOTOS) Preparing for Valenitne’s Day is always stressful for florists, and Friday was just as busy for Jean’s Flowers. Rob Drinkard… read more But Sanders was called into the Army and he was stationed in Arkansas. Sanders’ sergeant told him there was a girl he needed to meet.Sanders didn’t say it was love at first sight but he didn’t say it wasn’t. But the girl he needed to meet said she would not marry a farmer or a preacher.Luckily for Sanders, he was a soldier so the couple got married and, for more than a year, Uncle Sam kept them separated. But, when Sanders was discharged, the girl, who said she wouldn’t marry a farmer, came home to the farm in Goshen. Remember America’s heroes on Memorial Day Plans underway for historic Pike County celebration By Blood Sugar Blaster Md: Do This Immediately if You Have Diabetes (Watch) Email the author Troy falls to No. 13 Clemson By Jaine Treadwell It was after Sanders retired from farming in 1980, that he answered the call to the ministry. And, there was Irene Sanders, the girl who said she would never marry a farmer or a preacher, married to a farmer and a preacher.Sanders said unbelievable circumstance over the years brought him to the ministry.In 1940, while working peanuts, his clothes got caught in the peanut picker and he could have easily lost a limb or his life. He had two other close calls with farm machinery. When he was in the Army during World War II, he was behind enemy lines for 23 days. Then, in 1961, Sanders had another near miss when the peanut picker he was working caught fire.Later, when Sanders found himself in a declining financial situation, he called on the Lord and the Lord called him right back. Latest Stories “It’s almost unbelievable the way the Lord works things out in our lives,” he said.Irene Sanders had always supported and encouraged her husband and she continued to do so when he answered the call to the ministry.“We were called mostly to country churches and I felt unworthy but blessed to lead those churches,” Sanders said. “Irene is probably more spiritual than I am. She has read the entire Bible 14 or 15 times. We pray together and try to set an example for others. We believe that we should set good examples for others to follow.”A marriage of 70 years and counting is a good example for any couple to follow. And, in setting that example, Sanders said marriage is a give and take union.“You have to learn to give and to take,” he said. “Irene and I have always tried to understand and respect each other. We never raise our voices to each other. We pray together and that is most important.”Sanders said his wife is the heart of their family.“We have two children, seven grandchildren and 13 great-grandchildren and Irene keeps us all together,” he said. “She is beautiful inside and out. What more could I say about her. Through all of these years, Irene and I have walked in love. For any couple, that’s the most important thing. To always walk in love every day.” Print Article Pike County Sheriff’s Office offering community child ID kits Published 3:00 am Saturday, February 14, 2015 Around the WebMd: Do This Immediately if You Have Diabetes (Watch)Blood Sugar BlasterIf You Have Ringing Ears Do This Immediately (Ends Tinnitus)Healthier LivingHave an Enlarged Prostate?

Panoro to drill new production well at Guebiba field in Tunisia

first_imgThe new production well is expected to spud in May, using CTF 06 onshore rig, owned by Compagnie Tunisienne de Forage (CTF) Panoro will drill a new production well at Guebiba field in Tunisia. (Credit: Pixabay/skeeze) UK-based Panoro Energy, along with its Tunisian joint venture partner Entreprise Tunisienne d’Activités Pétrolières (ETAP), has unveiled plans to drill a new production well on the Guebiba onshore field in Tunisia.The Guebiba onshore field is part of  Thyna Production Services (TPS) operated assets in the country. The drilling of a new production well marks the first drilling activity on its operated assets since 2015.The well is expected to spud in May, using CTF 06, a 2,000 horsepower onshore rig owned by Compagnie Tunisienne de Forage (CTF), the Tunisian state-owned drilling contractor.Panoro will complete drilling at Guebiba field prior to the exploration well at Salloum WestPanoro said that the drilling operations will use an existing top hole section, to target a new production interval on the Bireno formation at 3,600m in a known fault block compartment.In addition, the assessment of the historical performance of the field demonstrates the requirement of a further drainage point to effectively utilise the resource potential present in the western panel of the field.The expected incremental production uplift from the well is also anticipated to increase the daily output from TPS operated assets.The company said that the proposed production well at Guebiba field is expected to be drilled prior to the Salloum West exploration well, which also targets the Bireno formation, and was delayed due to pending regulatory approvals.In addition, the CTF 06 rig planned to be immediately mobilised to Salloum West, once the drilling operations at Guebiba are completed, by which time the anticipated final approval will be received.Panoro CEO John Hamilton said: “We are extremely pleased to have secured the CTF 06 rig to drill at the Guebiba onshore field, in advance of its use on our Salloum West exploration well.“Our Tunisian assets are undergoing an unprecedented high level of activity and we expect this to yield results in material additional production during the first half of 2020.”last_img read more

Assault ship HMS Albion arrives in Oman for Saif Sareea

first_img View post tag: HMS Albion View post tag: Saif Sareea View post tag: Royal Navy View post tag: Oman Photo: HMS Albion coming alongside the Omani port of Duqm. Photo: Royal Navy Royal Navy amphibious assault ship HMS Albion has arrived in Oman ahead of the start of an exercise that will see the involvement of over 4,000 British personnel.Exercise Saif Sareea (Swift Sword) is the largest combined military exercise for UK forces since 2002 and HMS Albion will be in charge of leading the naval element.Assault ship HMS Albion – on the final leg of a nine-month deployment which has taken her as far east as Japan – spearheads substantial Royal Navy involvement in the exercise.The Plymouth-based warship is the hub of an Amphibious Task Group which will comprise destroyer HMS Dragon, minehunters HMS Blyth and Ledbury, plus their support/command ship RFA Cardigan Bay, amphibious support vessel RFA Lyme Bay and the military ferry MV Anvil Point.The tip of the amphibious spear is provided by the Royal Marines of 3 Commando Brigade and numerous constituent parts from the elite amphibious infantry of 40 Commando (based in Taunton), intelligence and information warfare experts of 30 Commando and gunners of 29 Commando Royal Artillery (both from Plymouth), 24 Commando Royal Engineers and Commando Logistic Regiment (both based at Chivenor in north Devon), landing craft/raiding craft specialists of 539 Assault Squadron (Devonport) and the Dorset-based armour of the Viking Squadron.Joining them on the ground will be British armour and infantry. And overhead there will be aerial support courtesy of the RAF, Army Air Corps and Fleet Air Arm such as Merlin, Chinook, Wildcat and Apache helicopters from Joint Helicopter Command, RAF Typhoon jets and E-3D Sentry aircraft and the hosts own F-16s.For Commodore James Parkin, Commander Amphibious Task Group, the exercise is a reminder – with many eyes fixed on HMS Queen Elizabeth and her F-35 Lightning jet trials in the USA – that Britain and the Royal Navy have “never left the amphibious game”.He said: “HMS Albion represents the very best of the British Armed Forces – able to deploy globally, crammed to the gunwales with modern weapons and sensors, and capable of putting a potent landing force of commandos from sea onto land, at a time and place of our choosing, without having to ask anyone else’s permission.Cdre Parkin continued: “Albion also represents the best of Britain too – right now she has a ship’s company of 400 men and women, and 200 additional embarked staff and military forces, drawn from all corners of the United Kingdom and Commonwealth, from all backgrounds, ages, races, and religions. And with the enormous flight deck, and the cavernous well dock, full of Royal Marines fighting vehicles and landing craft, her sheer scale is as awe inspiring as to our friends as she is terrifying to our enemies.”Both Albion and the Royal Marines have been gearing up for Saif Sareea – staged roughly every 15 years, going back to the late 1980s – for the past few weeks, including joint amphibious exercises in the Adriatic (Albanian Lion) and Brunei.The exercise is intended to reinforce the long-standing and close military relationship between Britain and Oman, taking the level of co-operation and ability to provide security and safeguard prosperity in a vital part of the world.It will also be the most demanding test yet of Britain’s new Joint Logistics Support Base at Duqm, a new port roughly half way between Oman’s capital Muscat and Salalah.The UK’s facilities are designed to support Royal Navy and Royal Fleet Auxiliary vessels operating east of Suez.Following Saif Sareea some elements of the task group will remain in the Middle East to support activity with other nations, while others – including Albion – will return to Britain to prepare for the UK assuming the duty as NATO’s on-call Amphibious Task Force in January.

Ketamine could be used to treat depression, Oxford University study finds

first_imgThe class B party drug ketamine could be used as a last-resort treatment for sufferers of severe depression, Oxford University scientists say.For six years, Oxford scientists have used approximately 1000 infusions of the horse tranquilliser to treat more than 100 people with treatment-resistant depression.They said that patients who received carefully administered intravenous doses of the drug, followed by oral top-ups, reported positive effects in 42 per cent of cases. The drug was slowly injected over 40 minutes once or twice a week.“I have seen ketamine work where nothing has helped before,” said Dr Rupert McShane, a consultant psychiatrist at Oxford Health NHS Foundation Trust, who led the programme.“But ketamine is a drug not a miracle, and maintaining the benefit is a challenge. So far, the only way we have found to maintain the benefit is repeated dosing.“We think that patients’ treatment should be in specialist centres and formally tracked in national or international registries.“This will help us to pick up any safety or abuse problems with longer term use, and narrow down what dose, frequency, route and duration of treatment works best.”Among a range of recommendations listed in the paper, published in The Lancet Psychiatry, the authors say that there is a need for clear guidelines and registries to track results about how patients with depression respond to ketamine.They suggested further investigation into working out the safety of repeated ketamine treatment, and the potential for misuse.Ketamine — also known as ‘K’ and ‘Special K’ — is known for giving its users dreamlike, “floaty” feelings, sometimes referred to as “entering the ‘K-hole’”.It is banned for recreational use in the UK, but is currently a licensed drug, which means it can be prescribed by doctors. In the last year, there has been a boom of private ketamine clinics in the US.The paper concluded: “We hope that the recommendations proposed here go some way to enabling innovative use of ketamine for treatment-resistant depression to continue, with appropriate care, precaution, and foresight.”Professor Allan Young, of the Royal College of Psychiatrists, said ketamine may cause some mood improvement for sufferers, but “there are still significant gaps in our knowledge about dosage levels, treatment protocols and the effectiveness and safety of long term use.”“Before ketamine can be recommended for use in clinical practice, extensive research is required to understand how to optimally use ketamine for treating depression.“The Royal College of Psychiatrists has concerns for patient safety; and hence recommends mental health practitioners to proceed with caution when treating patients with ketamine.”last_img read more
