The research also suggested a third of 25-34 year-olds who do own property were given money by their parents or a relative. Russell Quirk, Emoov’s chief executive, pointed out that ” ifthe trend continues then the bank of Mum and Dad will become even more important for the next generation of home owners”. Of course, you could look on the bright side – we might all be living on the Moon by then… center_img whatsapp by Taboolaby TaboolaSponsored LinksSponsored LinksPromoted LinksPromoted LinksYou May LikeMoneyPailShe Was A Star, Now She Works In ScottsdaleMoneyPailzenherald.comMeghan Markle Changed This Major Detail On Archies Birth Certificatezenherald.comMaternity WeekA Letter From The Devil Written By A Possessed Nun In 1676 Has Been TranslatedMaternity WeekPost FunKate & Meghan Are Very Different Mothers, These Photos Prove ItPost FunForbesThese 10 Colleges Have Produced The Most Billionaire AlumniForbesComedyAbandoned Submarines Floating Around the WorldComedyEquity MirrorThey Drained Niagara Falls — They Weren’t Prepared For This Sickening DiscoveryEquity MirrorSwift VerdictChrissy Metz, 39, Shows Off Massive Weight Loss In Fierce New PhotoSwift VerdictOpulent ExpressHer Quadruplets Were Born Without A Hitch.

Enjoy it while you can! Analysts say deflation will not be here to stay

By on

first_imgDeflation has finally arrived in the UK for the first time since the 1960s, but economists are almost unanimous in saying it will be temporary. Inflation – as measured by the year-on-year change in the consumer price index (CPI) – was minus 0.1 per cent in April. The last time inflation was this low, the price of a loaf of bread was 4.8p and milk was a mere 3.3p a pint.  Read more: 33 charts showing how UK inflation compares across the EU Chancellor George Osborne welcomed the UK’s deflation. “Today we see good news for family budgets, with prices lower than they were a year ago. As the Governor of the Bank of England said only last week, we should not mistake this for damaging deflation,” he said. His words echoed the view of many economists who have said deflation caused by cheaper food and oil is a good thing, and it should not be confused with harmful deflation caused by weak spending and falling incomes. But the good times are not expected to last. “Looking ahead, the UK’s deflation is likely to last for one month only. CPI inflation should return to positive territory in May, as the effect of the shifting timing of Easter ceases to depress it, and as the negative contribution from energy and food prices starts to fade,” said economist Samuel Tombs from Capital Economics.  He added: “There are still few signs that very low inflation is having malign economic effects – consumers are undertaking, not delaying, purchases.” Meanwhile, some are concerned that inflation could rebound quickly. “I am always concerned when something has been written off, and inflation is definitely in that camp currently,” said Henry Dixon, fund manager at investors Man GLG. “In my view, when some of the short-term factors, such as the fall in the oil price come out of the equation, it could overshoot the official target and climb back up near to three per cent by January.” OH THOSE SWINGING 60s The girdle (a woman’s undergarment designed as a slimming aid) was among several new additions to the basket of goods tracking inflation in the early sixties. The plastic bucket replaced the galvanised version and out went the mangle (a device for squeezing excess water from freshly washed linen) and the teapot. In came Sherry, Keg beer and the wrist watch. Boy’s blazers replaced the Boy’s two-piece suit. Tinned stewed steak made its debut, along with blended butter and sliced white bread. Reflecting the growing affluence, prices of refrigerators, cookers, gloss paint and ceiling paper were added to the index.  Express KCS Show Comments ▼ Tuesday 19 May 2015 9:13 pm whatsapp Enjoy it while you can!

New Earth Science Fellowship Offered To CU Graduate Students For Study At CU-Boulder And NOAA Labs

By on June 14, 2021

first_img Published: Dec. 5, 2007 Share Share via TwitterShare via FacebookShare via LinkedInShare via E-mail The Cooperative Institute for Research in Environmental Sciences is teaming up with NOAA’s Earth System Research Laboratory, one of the nation’s pre-eminent research labs, to offer a new, competitive fellowship to earth science graduate students at the University of Colorado at Boulder.The fellowship will allow students to pursue a master’s degree or doctorate in one of 10 CIRES-affiliated departments at CU-Boulder while simultaneously working with the world-class research team at the National Oceanic and Atmospheric Administration labs in Boulder.In fall 2008 CIRES and ESRL expect to award six fellowships, each for up to $45,000 per year. Selected students may be funded for up to two years in a master’s degree program and for up to four years in a doctoral program. The annual funding is expected to cover tuition, partial health insurance, a half-time stipend during the academic year, a full-time stipend during the summer and participation in one professional meeting.”Today’s pressing environmental issues cut across traditional academic disciplines. That’s why the new CIRES-ESRL scholarship is designed to foster interactive and interdisciplinary research in earth system sciences and environmental science policy, as well as to help educate the next generation of researchers in science fields important to NOAA’s mission,” said CIRES Director Konrad Steffen. “We’re very excited to offer this new award in addition to our existing Graduate Student Fellowship Program.”Students may apply to work with a CU-CIRES faculty adviser and a NOAA-ESRL science adviser in one of several areas of cutting-edge research, including aerosols and climate, trace gases and non-CO2 greenhouse gases, the Arctic atmosphere, regional weather prediction, optical remote sensing, the carbon cycle, and linking weather and climate.The application deadline is Jan. 31, 2008, which may not be the same as departmental deadlines.

Finau/Champ post 68 in alt shot, tie Zurich lead

By on May 31, 2021

first_imgAVONDALE, La. — Tony Finau and Cameron Champ shot a 4-under 68 in alternate-shot play Friday for a share of the Zurich Classic lead with the Norwegian duo of Viktor Hovland and Kris Ventura. “I know we’re having a good time with this format up to this point,” Finau said about the lone team event on the PGA Tour. “We’ve both played some really solid golf, and we find ourselves at the top of the leaderboard. “We’ll do what we’ve been doing the last couple days, which is enjoy each other’s company and not add any bonus pressure when it comes to teammate golf.” Hovland and Ventura had a 69 to match Finau and Champ at 13-under 131. The teams will play best ball Saturday, and close with an alternate-shot round Sunday. “Just having fun, and obviously we don’t get to do this very often,” Ventura said. “We’re playing some good golf, and the course we both like, so it’s just one of those things where we’re comfortable playing out here.” Champ, Finau ‘grinded it out’ in Zurich Round 2 It was an eventful day in windy conditions at the TPC Louisiana, highlighted by two aces. Nick Watney, the Zurich winner in 2007 when it was a traditional individual event, made a hole-in-one on the 14th hole from 224 yards. Later, Northern Ireland’s Graeme McDowell aced the 217-yard 17th, eliciting a roar from what is normally one of the rowdiest spectator areas on the course. McDowell then sent a cooler loaded with cans of beer and wine to the media center. McDowell and Matt Wallace bogeyed four holes and shot 70, good enough to make the cut at 8 under. Watney and Charley Hoffman shot 74 to make the cut at 6 under. Hovland and Ventura, also tied for the lead after the first round, birdied five holes. But they were left to rue a double bogey on 16, when Hovland hit their approach shot from a fairway bunker into the water short and left of the green. “It was my fault,” Ventura said with a laugh. “We tried to hit the fairway with an iron (off of the tee) and I hit it in that bunker. I wasn’t the best teammate.” Finau and Champ briefly surged to a two-shot lead after birdies on the par-4 10th and the par-5 11th. But they bogeyed the par-4 12th when Finau’s approach fell short of the right side of the green. But Finau made up for it with a birdie putt of nearly 6 feet on 18. “We knew today with the wind and just the format in general it was going to be a grind, and that’s what we did, especially coming down the last nine holes,” Finau said. “We just kind of grinded it out.” While attendance was not immediately released, galleries following the leaders looked considerable. Festive fans seemed delighted to be back at an event canceled last year by the coronavirus pandemic. Many did not wear masks, despite signs around the course asking them to do so. Zurich Classic of New Orleans: Full-field scores | Full coverage Henrik Stenson and Justin Rose birdied seven holes, including the par-3 17th with a 12-foot putt by Rose. But they also bogeyed three holes to shoot a four-under 68 that put them at 11 under and tied for third with Bubba Watson and Scottie Scheffler. None of Rose’s and Stenson’s bogeys derailed them. They responded twice with birdies on the next hole. “A problem shared is a problem halved in this format for sure,” Rose said. “But Henrik was a rock today. I was kind of looking at it in terms of I don’t think he made one mistake that led to us dropping a shot really. It was pretty fun just to have someone that was so solid today. He pulled his weight.” Watson and Scheffler were at 12 under after three straight birdies on Nos. 10, 11 and 12, but dropped strokes with bogeys on 15 and 17 before finishing with a birdie on Scheffler’s 8 1/2-foot putt. Billy Horschel and Sam Burns were a shot off the lead through 14 holes, but bogeyed 15 and then double-bogeyed the par-5 18th after Burns’ tee shot went in the water right of the fairway and Horschel’s next shot landed in a fairway bunker. They head to the third round tied for ninth at 8 under. Australians Marc Leishman and Cameron Smith shot a 72 to remain at 9 under. Their first bogey came after Leishman hit his drive on 13 into one of the most photogenic trees on the course, a massive, towering cypress with roots as high as 4 feet protruding from the grass around it. Smith couldn’t get a swing on the ball in there and had to take a drop. They also double-bogeyed the 17th after Leishman’s tee shot landed in the water left of the green.last_img read more

Comment / Container shipping: the bigger picture is looking even gloomier, says BIMCO

By on

first_imgBy Mike Wackett 12/10/2015 In an analysis of the CCFI over the past two years, BIMCO suggests a bleak picture.For example, looking at European component of the CCFI, the index value at January 2015 was just under $1,100 per teu, but by September this had plummeted to around $800. This adds to the difficulty for carriers in the forthcoming round of contract negotiations with shippers.Meanwhile, on Friday the SCFI for North Europe hit a 15-week low of $259 per teu – barely enough to cover the fuel cost on the voyage, let alone other vessel operating costs.However, ocean carriers are notoriously reluctant to discuss the ratio of spot to contract cargo they carry, traditionally regarding the former as a top-up ‘necessary evil’ when contract demand is soft.Even in the most detailed and transparent of carriers’ financial reports, the amount of ‘non-contract’ cargo carried is a closely guarded secret confined to the boardroom.However, what we do know from anecdotal reports is that the percentage of spot cargo this year appears to have increased significantly as volumes declined and bigger ships have been deployed.No container line wants to see its latest ultra-large containership arriving at its first European port of call with its deck half empty.Elsewhere, Maersk Group chief executive Nils Andersen has said that if the group’s container arm was suffering then its rivals would “suffer more”, but in an article in today’s Wall Street Journal the line’s CEO calls for more consolidation to rescue the liner industry.Soren Skou told the WSJ  that demand growth in 2015 has been “extremely weak, at around 1.5% to 2%, much less than anticipated, while capacity will grow at around 7%”.Mr Skou even suggested that some of Maersk Line’s ship investment decisions may have been flawed, given the benefit of hindsight.He said: “Global growth is very disappointing, and if we knew what we know today, maybe some of the decisions we made three years ago would have been different.”If the best-in-class and highly profitable Maersk Line is becoming twitchy about the supply-demand imbalance, then its peers must be much more nervous. BIMCO is the latest container shipping industry association to paint a gloomy picture of low demand on normally high-volume trades, being exacerbated by a record influx of newbuild tonnage.“As volumes drop and new ships are introduced on a weekly basis, it is even more difficult to strike the balance that will see freight rate improvements,” said BIMCO, citing the lack of European demand as a particular “concern”.Looking beyond the Shanghai Containerized Freight Index (SCFI), which records average spot rates only from Shanghai to North Europe, BIMCO analysed the China Containerized Freight Index (CCFI) to gleam a “fuller picture of how container rates are faring out of China”.The CCFI, also produced by the Shanghai Shipping Exchange, collects data from 10 major Chinese ports and includes long-term contract rates in addition to spot rates, thus providing a more balanced barometer of the health of a tradelane.last_img read more

Sources: Hoboken Housing Authority OK’s $700k settlement with ex-director

By on May 7, 2021

first_img Looks like a few commissioners, political puppets and shadowy behind the scenes politicians really screwed this up.Maybe if some commissioners had not been so afraid of Garcia or had past DEEP and PERSONAL connections the HHA and city could have fought the case.Is Wefer’s interview more damaging than those emails directing the chair who went AWOL worse?The politicians and their spouses get off while the taxpayers get screwed. Hopefully the Bhalla administration won’t have a shadow leader whammy TAGSCarmelo GarciaDana WeferDawn ZimmerHoboken Housing Authoritystan grossbard SHARE HorseGotIt I am thinking the lawyers will walk away with more of the loot than anyone.Having the trash hauled away is sometimes expensive but worth every penny considering the alternative is living with the filth. For politicians to fight a bad guy who took advantage of the most vulnerable population in Hoboken and then bail out to save themselves is a disgrace.It’s all about getting out clean before Mayor Zimmer’s term ends and stiffing the HHA residents with 100% of the bill.Great job! Look at the political sycophants cheering on Carmelo getting a huge pile of dough after terrorizing residents and leaving the HHA in shambles! A steal? Yes, this is definitely stealing. Where else but in Hoboken can a crook be paid nearly seven figures for an “ethnic cleansing” lawsuit. This is an absolute disgrace! Last month, MSV broke the story and said it was under a million.

Too bad MSV and HCV got this story and you are the Hoboken411 trying to cover it up. Hey I heard Jen Giattino sent out her electric bill two days late. You should get right on that! No one cares about your Ravi clown show. It’s just you and your handful of pals and all your multiple screen names attacking people who have done outstanding work for Hoboken. No one gives two craps what you want. Such Gross abuse You aren’t interested in the HHA story for what it is which yet another grifter getting paid off in a nuisance law suit. You’re only interested in using it to cry about the election. Meanwhile the city is going back to run offs to benefit a guy who hasn’t done his financial reports yet and owes his ass to the trade unions. No reporting about that on your dead website. That’s why it’s a dead website. If you can’t cry about it, you don’t report it. But why explain it to someone who doesn’t see how saying stinkus makes him sound like a little school boy. The reason the Horse is popping up all over this and other stories is obvious. First, he broke this story. Said Carmelo Garcia was going to reap under a million last month for that garbage “ethnic cleansing” lawsuit and it’s true. It was being kept secret from the public so Ravi didn’t get hurt in the election.Second, Horse lives rent free in the heads of the power structure. He’s guilty of pissing them off with breaking news. Not a big deal since there’s really no serious news coverage in Hoboken but on Hudson County View and the Horse’s MSV website. Who broke the news on the Ravi Bhalla union PAC? Was it Horse or Hudson County View. They both covered it. “I’m not Horsey but” Sure Jan Actually Roman Brice wrote that the settlement was “almost 7 figures which was not true. He wrote that it had yet to be approved when it had been approved 3 weeks earlier at a public meeting. Then he wrote that it was $1.2 or $1.3 million with the City, Mayor Zimmer and her husband footing $900,000 of it which was not true. Now he’s writing that it was kept secret until after the election to help Ravi which is also not true, unless he thinks David Dening, chairman of the HHA and Giattino’s treasurer was secretly trying to help Ravi. Among supposed Jen supporters, only benedicthorse and his idiot partner were helping Ravi. Mr. Dening, on the other hand, an honorable man, was an asset to her campaign. Roman is living rent free in his own sad delusional world. I wish his imaginary world were a happier place for him but unfortunately it’s not. December 20, 2017 9:23 am at 9:23 am I agree but Facebook Twitter December 20, 2017 8:57 am at 8:57 am Who’s turn is it to watch Ravi’s lunatic leftist paid operative? She escaped out of the dark dungy cave again! Start weaving your magic of lies and defamation Nancy. Ravi didn’t pay you $600 per hour for filling out a little hand out card. Look at all the time your wasting here when you need to be creating new lies attacking Peter, Jen and Tiffanie. There’s a whole lot of damage control to do now that your political bosses are paying off Carmelo and taking care of themselves on the way out the door! HorseGotIt December 19, 2017 5:04 pm at 5:04 pm No, Ravi won because Tiffanie Fisher, Roman Brice and Kurt Gardiner were secretly supporting him. There really is no other explanation for their actions and Ravi could never have won without their help. And to think he didn’t have to pay them a dime. Its just so unfair.

Hi PaidOP Nancy, I’m not Horsey but boy does he have you green with envy! Too bad he broke the coverup on all this. Hey, not so bad. At least you won’t have to be defending Michael Russo as Council President. He busted up that little Ravi party too.

That was the queen of the Carmelitos. Unlike other HHA residents, she never renounced supporting the person screwing over the residents and treating them like his proles. The Hoboken Housing Authority approved a $700,000 lawsuit settlement for Carmelo Garcia, a former executive director of the agency, at last month’s meeting as both parties wait for approval from the U.S. Department of Housing and Urban Development (HUD). By John Heinis/Hudson County ViewThe HHA approved the agreement at their November 9th meeting, two days after the hotly contested municipal elections where Councilman-at-Large Ravi Bhalla was elected as mayor.“This is a resolution approving the settlement in the mater entitled Garcia versus the Hoboken Housing Authority in accordance with terms set forth in an appropriate agreement subject to approval by HUD and adequate funding from the carrier,” according to a transcript from the meeting.The measure passed by a vote of 4-0(2), with Commissioners Barbara Reyes and LaTrenda Ross abstaining, while Commissioner Judy Burrell was absent.Back in May 2016, Garcia and the HHA filed dueling lawsuits against each other, with the former state Assemblyman alleging he was fired for not advancing Mayor Dawn Zimmer’s political agenda.The HHA countered that Garcia violated HUD guidelines by being the only person responsible for approving or denying procurement contracts, also claiming that at least four contractors that violated the procurement policy contributed to Garcia’s Assembly campaign.Garcia named Zimmer, her husband Stan Grossbard, Burrell, along with current HHA Commissioners Dave Mello, also an outgoing councilman-at-large, James Sanford, and David Denning – the current board chairman.According to public court records, the City of Hoboken and Mello were dismissed from the suit on June 19th of this year.Garcia also named Jake Stuiver and Dana Wefer, two former board chairs, in the suit, the latter of which led the charge to have him fired in August 2014.His termination came to fruition after a protest and a tumultuous HHA meeting, which requited a hefty police presence, hosted at City Hall.The suit was the third of its kind filed by Garcia, who received national attention in 2013 when he filed the first version of his wrongful termination suit, initially claiming that the Zimmer administration engaged in “ethnic cleansing” by ridding the city of minority leaders.That suit was dismissed without prejudice in December 2013.The political saga that was built around the lawsuit arguably hit a crescendo in October 2015, 11 days prior to municipal elections where Garcia was seeking the 6th Ward council seat, after dozens of emails between Grossbard and members of the HHA board were leaked to the press.As Hudson County View reported, Grossbard advised then-HHA Chairman Stuiver to threaten to terminate Garcia to help negotiate a new procurement policy in a March 7th, 2013 email exchange, but he did not heed the advice and Garcia remained the HHA executive director for another 17 months.Garcia ended up coming up short against then-Zimmer ally and 6th Ward incumbent Jen Giattino.“I think the parties made an intelligent decision to resolve their differences in this matter,” Louis Zayas, Garcia’s attorney in the case, said over the phone.While Zayas declined to say the amount the case settled for, three sources, who spoke under the condition of anonymity since they were not authorized to speak on the matter, confirmed the $700,000 figure with Hudson County View.Since the city had previously been dismissed from the suit, the housing authority will be responsible for paying out the entirety of the settlement.Although they were sued personally, Zimmer and Grossbard will also not be paying into the settlement, sources said.This isn’t the first time Zayas has reached a six-figure settlement for a Hoboken client.Back in February 2015, the Hoboken City Council approved a $700,000 agreement for ex-Public Safety Director Angel Alicea.A Hudson County Superior Court jury awarded Alicea just over a million dollars on December 18th, 2013, but the city appealed the decision.Not everyone involved in the case appears to be thrilled with the HHA board’s recent decision, as Wefer, who has recently moved to Bergen County, called the move “a travesty.”“This is a travesty for the residents of the housing authority, who have been victimized by Carmelo Garcia twice now. The civic justice system and public insurance system are broke and in need of serious reform,” she told Hudson County View in a text message.All the other parties named in the suit did not return multiple inquiries seeking comment, while a HUD spokeswoman did not immediately return an email seeking comment. CYA Grossmode Perhaps Ms.Wefer should not have given interviews on the subject while litigation was ongoing. I understand she was trying to build a political career but no lawyer would advise a client to give interviews while they were being sued. Perhaps something she said during these interviews damaged the HHA’s legal position.It’s a shame, this money should be going to fix problems in the HHA but instead due to unforced errors or mistakes it’s going into the pocket of someone who harmed the HHA for years. GA and HCV waited until actual facts were available and got the story right. Roman Brice put on his tinfoil hat, got pretty much everything wrong and exposed himself as both a lunatic and a fraud.
