Next: Interest Rates and HARP Participation Pressure Title Insurer Revenues Tagged with: Federal Reserve Home Values Investors Zillow The Best Markets For Residential Property Investors 2 days ago  Print This Post A majority of experts surveyed by Zillow and Pulsenomics expect large-scale investors will pull out of the housing market in the next few years—and that hopefully means a smoother field for consumer buyers.Out of 110 economists, real estate experts, and investment strategists surveyed in Zillow’s latest Home Value Index, 57 percent said they think institutional investors will work to sell the majority of homes in their portfolios “in the next three to five years.” These investors are largely credited with propping up housing during its recession, helping to keep sales volumes from plummeting too far.While their withdrawal will most certainly affect today’s still-fragile market—79 percent of those surveyed said the impact would be “significant or somewhat significant” should investor activity curtail this year—Zillow chief economist Dr. Stan Humphries says it wouldn’t be the worst thing to happen to housing.“Buyers entering the market in the next few months will not be competing with cash-rich investors like they were last year which should be small solace given the higher prices and mortgage rates that they will encounter,” Humphries said. “The gradual decline of investor activity should be viewed as another sign of the market slowly returning to normal.”Humphries also pitched in his own opinion on a timeline, saying he agrees with the panel “that there will not be a rush for the exit by institutional investors.”The group was also asked about their thoughts on when the Federal Reserve should end its asset purchases, an effort that has already begun with two rounds of tapering.More than 70 percent of respondents wish to see the stimulus ended before the end of 2014—“and the current pace of tapering will get us there,” said Pulsenomics founder Terry Loebs.“Of course, whether Janet Yellen’s Fed will maintain the current pace as new economic challenges arise remains an open question,” Loebs added.Finally, the last question posed to experts: What will home value appreciation look like in 2014 and beyond?Panelists arrived at an average projected appreciation rate of 4.5 percent through the end of the year–still high compared to the historical norm of 3 percent. Appreciation is expected to slow to 3.8 percent in 2015, falling to 3.3 percent by 2018.Based on current forecasts for home value appreciation in the next five years, panelists predicted that overall home values could surpass their April 2007 peak by the first quarter of 2018.

Bipartisan Budget Bolsters Economy, Workforce through Education, Skills Training

first_img SHARE Email Facebook Twitter Bipartisan Budget Bolsters Economy, Workforce through Education, Skills Training Budget News,  Economy,  Education,  Environment,  Healthcare,  Human Services,  PAsmart,  Press Release,  Public Health,  Public Safety,  Seniors,  Substance Use Disorder,  Transportation,  Workforce Development Wolf Makes First Deposit in the Rainy Day Fund Since 2005-06, Turns $2.4 Billion Deficit Into SurplusHarrisburg, PA – Today, Governor Tom Wolf outlined the major components of the budget that will build upon the critical investments made in education and workforce development and take a major step towards restoring the state’s fiscal health, including the first real transfer to the state’s Rainy Day fund in years.“Throughout my term, I have fought hard for Pennsylvanians and moved the commonwealth forward by investing in workforce training to help all Pennsylvanians succeed in our economy, increasing education funding to give our students the education they deserve, and expanding options for Pennsylvanians to have access to quality, affordable health care,” said Governor Wolf. “This year’s bipartisan budget continues to increase opportunities for all Pennsylvanians and shows the results of our hard work to get our finances under control.”Under the leadership of Governor Wolf, state government has invested in programs important to Pennsylvania families, including education, transportation, senior programs, environmental protection, and health care programs, and has saved $2 billion by streamlining government to better serve Pennsylvanians.Governor Wolf signed the General Appropriations bill today after months of negotiations with bipartisan legislative leaders.Highlights of the budget include:Continuing Investments in Education and Workforce DevelopmentGovernor Wolf has steadfastly fought to fund Pennsylvania’s schools and invest in workforce development. The budget builds on prior-year increases to provide an additional $313.5 million to improve education opportunities for every student across the state, regardless of zip code, and further ensure we have a workforce ready for the 21st century. Among other investments, the budget accomplishes the following:Provides an increase of $189.6 million for Pre-K through 12, including $25 million for Pre-K/Head Start, $100 million for Basic Education Funding, and $10 million for Career and Technical education.Increases funding for higher education, including additional investments in Pennsylvania’s community colleges, the Pennsylvania State System of Higher Education, and the state-related universities.Invests more than $61.4 million for school and community safety, including a $1.4 million increase for the Safe Schools Initiative.Maintains $1 million in grant funding for It’s on Us PA to address campus sexual violence.Launches the governor’s PAsmart initiative to align workforce development efforts across commonwealth agencies to more efficiently deliver services for all Pennsylvanians, which will prioritize $30 million for investments in computer science and STEM education programs and expand apprenticeship and industry partnerships.Turning a $2.4 Billion Deficit into a SurplusOver the past three years, Governor Wolf has taken a massive structural deficit and turned it into a surplus, putting money in the Rainy Day fund for the first time since 2006.The Administration reduced commonwealth staff complement by over 1,700 positions to the lowest level in more than 40 years, reversing a trend of complement increases in prior years without the use of furloughs.The Administration has identified more than 300 projects generating nearly $400 million in cumulative budget savings, using Lean practices to find savings, address backlogs, improve workflow, increase quality, and meet the needs of customers.Medicaid Expansion has provided health care to more than 720,000 people, while saving the commonwealth more than $700 million annually.The corrections population has declined from 50,904 to 48,341. This net reduction of nearly 2,600 individuals has allowed the commonwealth to reduce its footprint and reverse years of spending growth. SCI Pittsburgh, one of the commonwealth’s oldest and most functionally inefficient facilities, closed in 2017.The Administration fully funded the contributions for SERS and PSERS. While funding levels will remain high for many years until the unfunded liability has been fully repaid, annual increases in these payments have been significantly reduced by pension reform.The Administration undertook agency consolidations, including merging human resources and information technology services for all executive agencies, merging the Department of Corrections and the Pennsylvania Board of Probation and Parole, and consolidating administration functions across all four human service agencies.Increasing Opportunities for Women and Families and Protecting the Most VulnerableThe budget continues the work of the past three years by making further investments in programs that support women and families and increases services for individuals with intellectual disabilities and autism.Among other investments, the budget accomplishes the following:Increases funding for child care services by $6.8 million, paired with $50 million in federal funding. The $6.8 million will serve another 1,100 on the child care waiting list. The $50 million in federal dollars allows the state to adjust the base rate of pay for child care providers, ensuring fair wages for all four “STARS” levels of care after a lengthy wage freeze on Levels 1 and 2. This enables not only fair wages, but increases the possibility of hiring highly qualified employees.Increases funding by $5.3 million for community-based family centers, which includes:$4.5 million to provide home-visiting services for families affected by opioid use disorder.$800,000 in increased rates for home-visiting providers. June 22, 2018 Provides $1.2 million to increase rates for the nurse-family partnership program.Provides additional investments to assist individuals with intellectual disabilities and autism, including $16 million for an additional 965 individuals with intellectual disabilities or autism to access waivers to provide supports and services so they can remain in their home and community. Of those 965, there are 800 June 2019 graduates who, for the first time, will be able to receive waivers for services upon graduation rather than wait until September as had been the practice. This relieves significant worry for parents who previously needed to find care for their children in the gap between June and September.Provides $2.5 million for Lyme disease awareness, prevention, and surveillance.Provides $2.35 million to process additional birth certificate requests and reduce processing times.Keeping Pennsylvania Safe and Protecting the EnvironmentThe budget increases funding for public safety and allows for increased protections for Pennsylvania’s natural resources and agriculture industry. Among other investments, the budget accomplishes the following:Provides $6 million for the Pennsylvania State Police pilot program to purchase body-worn cameras.Provides $43 million for the communication and infrastructure purchases to continue the modernization of Pennsylvania’s Statewide Radio System and comply with federal requirements.Invests additional funding to train three State Police Cadet classes.Provides an additional $2.5 million to enable the Department of Environmental Protection to fill 35 mission critical positions throughout the agency, which will increase responsive oversight and improve customer service.Includes $3 million in new funding to increase Spotted Lanternfly detection, control, and eradication efforts to protect Pennsylvania business and agriculture.last_img read more

Blatter’s doubt for Russian Cup plan

first_imgSepp Blatter cast doubt on Russia’s preparations for the 2018 World Cup last night when he said Fifa will discuss cutting the number of stadiums to be used there.Two days after sports minister Vitaly Mutko gave details of the 12 stadiums in 11 cities to be used in Russia, the Fifa president suggested the plan could be re-examined.Blatter, at his final media briefing after Germany’s win over Argentina in Sunday’s final, said a Fifa delegation will visit Russia in September to discuss the 2018 finals.”We will have meetings there in September to see if 12 is the right number and even if they could be reduced to 10,” he said.His comments surprised Alexei Sorokin, chief executive of the Russian organisers, who said: “This is the first I have heard about it.”Blatter described the Brazil World Cup as “very, very special”, but said he was troubled it cost around £6.4billion to stage: “It’s obvious the World Cup has taken such a dimension that the organisation is a hard work for the organising country and also for Fifa,” he said. “Fifa is looking at 2018 now and we are in discussions on what is the ideal number for the organisation and to keep it in such a manner that it’s feasible, reasonable and controllable.”We are not going to be in a situation as is the case of one, two or even three stadiums in South Africa where it is a problem of what you do with these stadiums,” Blatter said.Russia president Vladimir Putin was in Rio for Sunday’s World Cup final and met Blatter.Mutko said on Saturday Russia had allocated £11.7 billion – £5.2billion more than Brazil – to the 2018 tournament.last_img read more

Milos Raonic beats racket-wrecking Alexander Zverev to reach Australian Open QFs

first_imgUS judge bars Trump’s health insurance rule for immigrants PH underwater hockey team aims to make waves in SEA Games PLAY LIST 02:42PH underwater hockey team aims to make waves in SEA Games01:44Philippines marks anniversary of massacre with calls for justice01:19Fire erupts in Barangay Tatalon in Quezon City01:07Trump talks impeachment while meeting NCAA athletes02:49World-class track facilities installed at NCC for SEA Games02:11Trump awards medals to Jon Voight, Alison Krauss ‘We are too hospitable,’ says Sotto amid SEA Games woes And so he should be. He’s into the Australian Open quarterfinals for the fourth time. And he’s achieved that from a tough part of the draw.He opened with a win over the enigmatic Nick Kyrgios, who had all the home-won support, and followed that up by coming back to beat three-time major winner Stan Wawrinka in four tiebreak sets. The 16th-seeded Raonic then beat Pierre-Hugues Herbert in three tiebreakers.At 28, Raonic feels like he’s on the verge of being back as a contender at the majors. Zverev, an undoubted talent, is yet to beat a top 20 player at a Grand Slam.Raonic was so consistent with his serve — 15 aces, one double-fault, 16 of 19 first serves into play for the second set — and kept his unforced error count down to 24 for the match. He said he could sense his rival’s growing rage.“It was pretty clear what was going on,” he said. “It can have an effect a lot of different ways. You know, if you’re a top guy and you do that against somebody who doesn’t have experience, it might sort of cause them to retreat a little bit.ADVERTISEMENT “I wasn’t really sure what to do at a point. I just try to stick in there,” Osaka said. “And also I was watching all these kids winning, like, last night Tsitsipas beat Federer and I was like, ‘Woah’ — so I decided I wanted to do well, too.′Another win now and there’s potential for Osaka to have a rematch of the U.S. Open final against Serena Williams. The seven-time Australian Open champion Williams was playing top-ranked Simona Halep later Monday in the fourth round. The winner of the Williams-Halep contest will meet seventh-seeded Karolina Pliskova, who beat Garbine Muguruzu 6-3, 6-1 in an hour.Pliskova, who is on a nine-match winning streak, plans to watch on TV: “For sure, it’s going to be the match of the tournament so far.”Osaka will be concentrating more now on Svitolina.Coming off a win at the WTA Finals, Svitolina is aiming to do what Caroline Wozniacki did last year and follow up a title at the season-ending championship with a breakthrough major in Australia.For a quarter of an hour on Day 8, Svitolina served and served, and served, tossing the ball into the sun, in a desperate bid to hold a game in the third set against Keys.After that huge hold, she broke the 17th-seeded Keys’ serve in at her first opportunity in the next game, and it was all one-way from then on.“I was happy I could handle the pressure at 1-1 in the third set,” Svitolina said. “It was very hard because the sun was just burning my eyes when I was tossing the ball. Very happy I could win that game.”She’s taking an 0-3 record in Grand Slam quarterfinals into her next match against Osaka, but is taking a different mindset into the match.Winning in Singapore “gave me huge boost of confidence, so I don’t think about the past anymore,” she said. “I only look forward.” View comments Grace Poe files bill to protect govt teachers from malicious accusations Lacson backs proposal to elect president and vice president in tandem LATEST STORIES Oil plant explodes in Pampanga town Private companies step in to help SEA Games hostingcenter_img Sports Related Videospowered by AdSparcRead Next Don’t miss out on the latest news and information. Germany’s Alexander Zverev smashes his racket in frustration during his fourth round match against Canada’s Milos Raonic at the Australian Open tennis championships in Melbourne, Australia, Monday, Jan. 21, 2019. (AP Photo/Kin Cheung)MELBOURNE, Australia — Milos Raonic was just overwhelming Alexander Zverev with consistency, compounding the frustration with every service break.Roanic dropped serve in the opening game of their fourth-round match at the Australian Open but then went on a roll, winning eight straight games before fourth-seeded Zverev held serve.ADVERTISEMENT SEA Games hosting troubles anger Duterte MOST READ No let up. Raonic held and then broke the 21-year-old German player’s serve again to lead 4-1 and that’s when Zverev lost it.At the change of ends he destroyed his racket by smacking it into the court eight times, then tossing it away.FEATURED STORIESSPORTSPrivate companies step in to help SEA Games hostingSPORTSUrgent reply from Philippine ‍football chiefSPORTSWin or don’t eat: the Philippines’ poverty-driven, world-beating pool starsThe angry outburst only served to highlight Raonic’s dominance.“I played incredible today,” the 2016 Wimbledon runner-up said. “I did a lot of things very well. Proud of that.” Oil plant explodes in Pampanga town “I have sort of faced that situation, and I was also ahead at that point, so I was just really focusing on myself.”Zverev got the inevitable warning for racket abuse, took a break at the end of the second set and returned from the locker room a much calmer, more composed player.“Yeah, it made me feel better,” Zverev said. “I was very angry, so I let my anger out.”Zverev lost only one point in his first four service games in the third set, but then Raonic stepped up the pressure again.“I played bad. The first two sets especially I played horrible,” Zverev said. “I mean, it’s just tough to name one thing. I didn’t serve well, didn’t play well from the baseline. Against a quality player like him, it’s tough to come back from that.”Zverev saved two match points in the 10th game of the third — one with a short slice backhand that Roanic ran for but couldn’t retrieve to end a 29-shot rally and another that clipped the baseline.But Raonic rallied from 3-1 down in the tiebreaker and finally converted on his fourth match point. He’ll next play either No. 11 Borna Coric or No. 28 Lucas Pouille in the quarterfinals.Earlier U.S. Open Naomi Osaka was a set down again and looking for a bit of inspiration.She thought of how 20-year-old Stefanos Tsitsipas had stunned 20-time major winner Roger Federer and how Frances Tiafoe has advanced to the quarterfinals for the first time. This helped her pull herself together to reach the last eight, too.No. 4-seeded Osaka had a 4-6, 6-3, 6-4 fourth-round win over No. 13-seeded Anastasija Sevastova to reach the last eight at a major for the second time. She’ll next play sixth-seeded Elina Svitolina, who fended off five break points in a game in the third set that went to deuce 11 times, contained 28 points, and was pivotal in a momentum-swinging 6-2, 1-6, 6-1 win over 2017 U.S. Open finalist Madison Keys.

first_imgMan Utd defender Harry Maguire won’t change his styleby Paul Vegasa month agoSend to a friendShare the loveManchester United defender Harry Maguire says his style fits well with manager Ole Gunnar Solskjaer’s system.Maguire will not be changing is his willingness to bring the ball out from the back and link play with the midfield and forwards.”I definitely feel like it’s the modern game, bringing it out from the back and it’s something I do thrive on,” Maguire told United Review.”I want to step in and help the team going forward by starting attacks well and threading balls through the lines, to try and get people on the half-turn to play forward.”I think it’s a big part of the game now, for centre-backs not just to defend, but to have a big part in keeping the ball, controlling the game and starting attacks.”My game will improve the more I know my team-mates and the more I experience I have of playing with them, the position they take up, the way they want to receive the ball and the areas in which I receive the ball so I know where my team-mates will be without having to look and try to find them.”It will improve and I’m sure I’ll improve throughout the season, playing with my team-mates more and improving my relationship with Vic (Victor Lindelof). We will improve as a team as well and we’ve got to improve.” About the authorPaul VegasShare the loveHave your saylast_img read more

Sri Lanka bomb blasts Vaas Herath call for unity

first_imgMumbai: Expressing dismay and shock at the multiple bomb blasts that killed and injured hundreds of people in Sri Lanka, the country’s former cricketers Chaminda Vaas and Rangana Herath on Tuesday said the need of the hour is to stay strong and united. “We cannot bring lives back,” said an utterly helpless Vaas as thoughts of the multiple blasts that killed nearly 300 and shattered Sri Lanka’s tranquility, crossed the former cricket star’s mind. “So sad to see. We never thought these kind of things will happen in Sri Lanka. It is a lovely country and hospitable. People are very friendly. It is so tragic to see such things happen,” Vaas told reporters. “We need to rebuild. We can rebuild churches or hotels but we can’t bring lives back. I am sure the Sri Lankan government and the people will be very united this time and make sure that we stick together,” said the former left-arm pacer with 400 ODI and 355 Test wickets. Herath has 433 Test wickets. Sri Lankan authorities arrested 24 people in connection with the blasts targeting churches and luxury hotels in the island nation on Easter Sunday, killing over 290 people and injuring around 500 others. Vaas and his former teammate Herath were in the city to inaugurate a local T20 cricket tournament organised by Jwala Singh. Herath, one of the best left-arm spinners of his time, said his country needs to stay strong during such times. “We need to convey our deepest sympathies and condolences. As Chaminda said, we are a united country. We kind of have a panic situation but (we are sure that) we (will) become a strong country,” he added. Vaas expressed confidence that the situation would be normal again in Sri Lanka. “This attack can happen anywhere in the world. We saw in New Zealand recently as well. These people don’t have simply one place (and) they can attack anywhere in the world. I am pretty sure that things will go back to normal,” Vaas remarked.last_img read more
