They predict that with austerity cuts, unemployment growth and the possibility of interest rate rises at the end of this year, the UK could see a rise in repossessions.“An economic shock to borrowers in severe arrears could result in a spike in new repossession cases,” said the report. center_img Monday 31 January 2011 9:06 pm UK subprime mortgages vulnerable to shocks whatsapp Read This Next’A Quiet Place Part II’ Sets Pandemic Record in Debut WeekendFamily ProofHiking Gadgets: Amazon Deals Perfect For Your Next AdventureFamily ProofAmazon roars for MGM’s lion, paying $8.45 billion for studio behind JamesFamily ProofIndian Spiced Vegetable Nuggets: Recipes Worth CookingFamily ProofYoga for Beginners: 3 Different Types of Yoga You Should TryFamily ProofBack on the Rails for Summer New York to New Orleans, Savannah and MiamiFamily ProofChicken Bao: Delicious Recipes Worth CookingFamily ProofNew England Patriots’ Cam Newton says no extra motivation from Mac Jones’SportsnautCheese Crostini: Delicious Recipes Worth CookingFamily Proof Tags: NULLlast_img read more

Clinical All Blacks make most of Wallaby errors for second half dominance

first_imgSaturday Aug 18, 2018 Clinical All Blacks make most of Wallaby errors for second half dominance The All Blacks kicked off the 2018 Rugby Championship and Bledisloe Cup with a 38-13 bonus point win over the Wallabies in Sydney. The first half was a tight affair, as the Wallabies led for large parts before the visitors came back to score five tries to one in the second half. New Zealand winger Waisake Naholo scored twice late in the game as things opened up and the Wallabies tried to pull things back, after sniffing a chance with a debutant Jack Maddocks try.Earlier, potential disaster struck as Israel Folau limped off after it looked like he twisted his ankle.Both sides head to Auckland next week to do it all again, in the daunting arena of Eden Park, where the Wallabies will be hoping to limit the error count, particularly at lineout time. “We’ve got to look after our own ball. The Kiwis made us pay. Set piece was dissapointing,” said skipper Michael Hooper. “We want to play a nice expansive game of rugby but to win these games you’ve got to keep the pressure on.”The All Blacks win was their seventh in a row away from home in the Rugby Championship, pleasing captain Kieran Read, who was all class as he praised the Wallabies for a tough match. “Both sides played some really good footy. Looked after the pill. Bloody tough Test match. Credit to the Wallabies the way they came out. We had to fight really hard,” he said post match. “It came down to a few moments, and we got the ascendancy in that second half.“We knew the Aussies had a pretty good series against Ireland up front, so we wanted to put a line in the sand there.”credit: sanzaarrugbyADVERTISEMENT Posted By: rugbydump Share Send Thanks Sorry there has been an error Related Articles 81 WEEKS AGO scottish prop saves fire victim 84 WEEKS AGO New Rugby X tournament insane 112 WEEKS AGO Vunipola stands by his comments supporting… From the WebThis Video Will Soon Be Banned.

Architectural ProblemThe project is a weekend house for a family from Guadalajara. The property is part of a small ecological subdivision located on the slopes of the hills that surround Lake Chapala, near the town of San Juan Cosala, municipality of Jocotepec, Jalisco, Mexico.Save this picture!© Mito CovarrubiasLake Chapala generates a comfortable temperate climate throughout the year, it is considered one of the best climates in the country. The land has an area of 2,720 m2. It has an irregular rectangular shape and with a constant slope of 15% down to the lake in the north – south direction.Save this picture!PlanThe clients are a strong couple married for 35 years. They have 5 children aged between 32 and 17 years: 1 woman (the eldest) + 4 males. They wanted a house: “… to our liking, functional, practical, cozy, spacious, airy, fresh and easy to maintain. With bungalows for children and guests and an open prayer space. An intimate place, that we miss upon leaving and feel joy when we return. “Save this picture!© Mito CovarrubiasProject IntentionAs a weekend house, we sought to generate user experiences different from that of daily living in the city, through various informal and free spaces, from surprising paths that encourage discovery and joy, that foster an ongoing dialogue between user and environment, with the hills, with the house, with the lake.Save this picture!© Mito CovarrubiasWe tried to lessen the impact of the overall construction of the house in the site, so that the house was not invasive in the place, so that it was properly integrated in the landscape looking for that subtle balance of elegance. The intention was that the majestic hills come down to the site, roam the garden and get into the house. It was clear that the more wild garden we designed, greater integration into the context and the lower the cost of maintenance.Save this picture!PlanBoth the architectural genre as the place for the house suggested an awakened and dynamic language, festive and free, which at first made a bow to the south, towards the imposing Lake Chapala (the largest lake in Mexico). And in the second instance to the north, to the majestic hills, which have been constant witnesses and faithful guardians of the lake.Save this picture!© Mito CovarrubiasWe tried to respect the need for independence both of the children -according to their age- and of the guests, so we opted for a few bungalows away from the main body of the house. Their location and the prayer space were determined by the routes along the ground to optimize and exploit the entire site.Save this picture!© Mito CovarrubiasEfforts were made to use the passive renewable energy like the sun, the wind … in order to keep the house cool and ventilated naturally and also to lower the costs of electricity. There was an extraordinary skewed view of the edge of the banks of the lake, the problem is that it coincided with a cultural habit that a western orientation is bad. We convinced the clients to take advantage of the belief that there are no bad orientations but bad solutions.Save this picture!© Mito CovarrubiasProject DescriptionThe set was solved by dividing the land basically into 3 platforms, these were resolved in stages respecting the natural slope. The main body of the house was located on the highest platform, offering the best views of the lake and where a greater sense of mastery is experienced. We placed a bungalow with two bedrooms plus services in each of the remaining two platforms.Save this picture!© Mito CovarrubiasThe main body of the house is designed on two floors. On the ground floor are the main hall (which fully opens to the outside as a terrace), kitchen and private terrace (climbing for few people) and finally, service spaces that were located on the north-east corner of the property, such as: laundry, bedroom and bathroom as well as wineries and others … upstairs are 3 bedrooms overlooking the lake and a room overlooking the hills. The master bedroom occupies the authority and hierarchy it deserves on the site. The third bedroom takes advantage of the view of the lake to the west, this radical orientation was solved through a sliding wooden lattice that helps create a flexible and ambivalent space.Save this picture!PlanThe bungalows were designed based on two fundamental criteria: avoiding blocking views of the lake from the highest immediate platform and fusing windows with retaining walls, and its green roofs with upper gardens. The bungalow on the lower platform, without a lake view, is located in the south-east corner of the property with the intention of creating a different, more defined and more intimate space to rest, creating a tribute to the old wild cactus with its stroke.Save this picture!© Marcos GarcíaProject gallerySee allShow lessExhibition: SNØHETTA – WORLD ARCHITECTUREEventHuge Fire Damages Basilica of Saint-Donatien in NantesArchitecture News Share “COPY” CopyAbout this officeJuan Ignacio Castiello ArquitectosOfficeFollowProductsStoneConcrete#TagsProjectsBuilt ProjectsSelected ProjectsResidential ArchitectureHousesSan Juan CosaláHousesMexicoPublished on June 15, 2015Cite: “Lake House / Juan Ignacio Castiello Arquitectos” [Casa del Lago / Juan Ignacio Castiello Arquitectos] 15 Jun 2015.

In North Carolina, Durham Pride brings revolutionary queerness

first_imgWWP anti-capitalist contingent at Durham, N.C. Pride, Sept. 29.Durham, N.C. — The struggle for LGBTQ liberation in the South has had its roots in strong resistance to the constant onslaught from reactionaries. The queer community in North Carolina has fought to return LGBTQ Pride to its roots by being outspoken and political — which is sorely needed to defend our communities.North Carolina is among 16 states that still have anti-sodomy laws on the books, despite those laws being declared unconstitutional at the national level. In addition, North Carolina joined with several other states in passing anti-trans “bathroom bills” in 2016, a law only half-repealed in 2017, which excludes trans people from legal protection.Any celebration of Pride in North Carolina should be a fight against these reactionary attacks and a fight for LGBTQ liberation, and not based on pinkwashing white supremacy.That is why Workers World Party’s Durham branch organized an anti-capitalist contingent to march in the Sept. 29 Durham Pride parade — and focused its chants and placards on the fight for queer liberation.But for a while this year, it wasn’t clear that Pride would even take place. In June, NC Pride, the organization previously in charge of Pride in Durham, announced that the event — set to happen in 3 months — was cancelled.Quickly, the local queer community, including the LGBTQ Center of Durham, rose to the challenge of reclaiming Pride and hosted the event on Sept. 29. The former leaders in NC Pride had been mostly white cis gay men. The new leadership was centered around queer trans people of color, including the House of Coxx, a prominent Durham drag family. One grand marshall was a founder of North Carolina’s original Pride in 1981, and two were co-founders of Southerners on New Ground (SONG).The shift in leadership at Durham’s Pride opened up opportunities to reclaim the day from corporations and white supremacy. The most notable win was a ban on uniformed police officers marching in the parade.While this was a win, uniformed cops were still present providing “security” for the event, so it is clear that many struggles still need to be opened. Wells Fargo was still a sponsor of the event, and lots of businesses sought to capitalize and co-opt our community. Pride was still held on Duke University’s campus and marched through an area that has contributed to the gentrification of the neighboring Black community, Walltown. According to an event organizer, the event was only held there because the space was already reserved by the previous organizers and may change next year.Durham WWP branch’s anti-capitalist contingent raised the issue of police brutality by wearing shirts saying “Queer as in fuck the police” and also raised the murder of North Carolina Central University student Deandre Ballard by a private security guard days before. NCCU is a historically Black university.The struggle for queer liberation is necessarily a struggle against police brutality, and for the connection between Black and queer liberation, as well as with other liberation movements. Many people watching the parade cheered as WWP Durham marched by, calling for cops to be kicked out of Pride and chanting “Be loud! Don’t be silent! The first Pride was a riot!”In addition to the strong anti-capitalist WWP presence, white liberals were also there, with many groups waving pinkwashed U.S. flags. There is still work that needs to be done to orient the community away from the dangerous rainbow capitalism and white supremacy that has taken over in other major cities across the country.In North Carolina, Charlotte’s Pride for six years has been named the “Bank of America Pride Parade” and has been thoroughly co-opted by the same corporations that threw queer workers out of their foreclosed homes in 2008 and are engaging in the violent gentrification of oppressed communities.The strong and militant WWP presence in the march was a hopeful reinvigoration of Durham Pride with revolutionary queerness. Next year, 2019, the 50th anniversary of the Stonewall Rebellion, offers the Durham queer community another opportunity to gather together militantly against police brutality and rainbow capitalism.Cops out of Pride! End the murders of Black and Brown trans women! Pride is a riot!Minnie Bruce Pratt and several members of the Workers World Durham branch also contributed to this article.FacebookTwitterWhatsAppEmailPrintMoreShare thisFacebookTwitterWhatsAppEmailPrintMoreShare thislast_img read more

The Four U.S. Cities Where Paychecks are Stretching Furthest

first_img The Four U.S. Cities Where Paychecks are Stretching Furthest Sign up for DS News Daily Share Save Data Provider Black Knight to Acquire Top of Mind 2 days ago Governmental Measures Target Expanded Access to Affordable Housing 2 days ago in Daily Dose, Featured, Journal, Market Studies, News Those looking to get the biggest bang for their bucks would be most likely to find it west of the Mississippi, according to a new joint report by Trulia and Indeed. The firms looked at which American cities stretch paychecks the furthest. The report found four cities topping the list, in the South, Southwest, and West. Three are mid-sized cities and one is larger.Birmingham, Alabama, tops the list of cities where paychecks meet opportunity. The iron-and-steel town dubbed the “Pittsburgh of the South” has an average salary of about $77,000 that, adjusted for cost of living, spends like $86,000. According to Zillow data, the median home value in Birmingham is $64,600 and home values in the city have increased 6.6 percent over the past year“Birmingham’s growth doesn’t match the pace of Southern economic powerhouses like Atlanta, Raleigh, and Nashville,” the report stated, “but it is Alabama’s largest city and a bright spot in the state’s economy, accounting for about 30 percent of its domestic product.”The Irondale neighborhood is a major affordability boon to the region, Trulia reported. Median home prices in the 35210 zip code are, on average, $147,000. That’s about $50,000 below more metro-centered homes. Trulia found almost identical dollar-stretching numbers in St. Louis, Missouri, and El Paso, Texas. Both cities report a median income around $76,000 that stretches to about $84,000 when adjusted for cost of living. Dollars in St. Louis, according to Trulia, stretch further than those in Chicago and Detroit, the latter of which is considered a highly affordable metro. The city has an economy running on manufacturing, construction, leisure, and hospitality.Still, dollars stretch further in the St. Louis suburb of Bethalto, which is actually in Illinois. Bethalto is less than 35 miles from downtown St. Louis, and homes there sell for a median price of $114,000. Zillow shows a current median home value in Saint Louis proper at $128,600, up 9.1 percent year-over-year.Over in far-west Texas, El Paso might be the forgotten metro of the Lone Star State, but it’s the most affordable city in Texas, according to the report. The same salary spends about $9,000 better in El Paso than in Dallas, even though home values in the city’s most desired suburb, Upper Valley, are significant. Median homes in Upper Valley sell for about $460,000. Per Zillow, the median El Paso home value is $115,700, up 1.7 percent over the past year.The West Coast’s lone entry to value-friendly cities is Fresno, California, where an $82,000 average salary stretches to about $84,000. Fresno is part of California’s software hub, but the region is still big in farming and leisure, given its proximity to three national parks.According to Trulia, most Fresno workers prefer to live in Woodward Park, 11 miles outside of town. The median home price in Woodward Park is about $342,000, roughly $100,000 more than living in the city itself. Within the city, the gulf between average salary and median home price, though, is among the most favorable in California’s urban areas. Zillow reports the median home value in Fresno is at $228,700, with a year-over-year increase of 10.5 percent.
