Summer tours: Scotland’s slide before South Africa

first_imgLATEST RUGBY WORLD MAGAZINE SUBSCRIPTION DEALS Slipping Scot: No.8 Johnnie Beattie is upended by Jeremy Su’a of Samoa during the Scots 27-17 loss in South AfricaBy Alan DymockA BEATLES B-side, Helter Skelter was said to be the song that started it all for heavy metal.“When I get to the bottom, I go back to the top of the slide,” the Scouse four-piece screeched. Rock ‘n’ roll indeed. Something, in fact, the Scotland national team can identify with after their recent loss to Samoa during their summer tour of South Africa.Bloody minded Boks: South Africa’s danger men lie in waitThe have slid down the IRB world rankings off the back of a 27-17 loss in Durban at the weekend, landing with hideous bump at 11th and blowing a hole through their forward cover in the process.The climb back up is a rough one, with the South Africans waiting. No Geoff Cross, no Pat MacArthur, no Kelly Brown. Ryan Grant is off on the adventure of a lifetime in Australia. Forwards coach Jonathan Humphreys has his work cut out just forcing to smile alongside his superior, Scott Johnson, while he goes about the job of strapping his forwards together for an ugly test, tantamount to cleaning up after a rave in a china shop. BRISBANE, AUSTRALIA – JUNE 09: Ryan Grant, the Scotland prop, who has just been called up into the Lions touring squad as a replacement poses during the British and Irish Lions media session held at the Tattersalls Club on June 9, 2013 in Brisbane, Queensland, Australia. (Photo by David Rogers/Getty Images) Scotland have replaced MacArthur with Glasgow Warriors’ Fraser Brown, a man who has played most of his recent rugby with club side Heriot’s. Glasgow’s Jon Welsh had already gone out as cover for Ryan Grant as he jetted off to become a British and Irish Lion. Announcements are forthcoming as the management seek replacements for Cross, who has an injured shoulder, and Kelly Brown. They will not struggle for willing participants, particularly in Scotland where both Glasgow and Edinburgh are already into day two of their gruelling pre-season regimen. Who wouldn’t want to skip down-and-ups in the dirt and double daily weight sessions to trot around in the sun?A noticeable forward loss: Ryan GrantThe problem is that this quadrangular tournament in South Africa has already proven itself to be nowhere near a holiday, but more of a hobbler as Scot after Scot gets cut off at the knees.Samoa played well and splintered the Scottish defence, even if their set-piece wilted when faced with Scots’ drives. South Africa, on the other hand, will be more than capable at the set-piece and likely to lick some grinning chops as they wave the Scots towards the dank horribleness of the ruck. The likes of Al Strokosch, Al Kellock and Sean Lamont may be looking forward to this aspect of confrontation, but the other must be urged not to get drawn into this game.Scotland love to be plucky underdogs, but their resources are already spread supermodel-thin. They need to halt the slide down the rankings and they need to prove a lot to themselves. None of this is done by thumping into the headbashing and heavy work of the rocking Boks.last_img read more

NY Housing Market Hitting High Notes

first_img Data Provider Black Knight to Acquire Top of Mind 2 days ago NY Housing Market Hitting High Notes Heavy demand for homes in the Empire State is stoking its real estate sector, according to the New York State Association of Realtors (NYSAR) housing market report. The state’s housing market recorded a robust first half of 2018, with 60,043 closed sales. That figure lags just 3.8 percent behind last year’s record-setting sales pace, the report says. Statewide median sales prices also continued their upward motion through the first six months of 2018, rising 8.9 percent from the first half of 2017 to hit $262,500, it notes.“The storyline at the midpoint of this year is sellers doing well in a tight inventory market that also has eager buyers ready to close,” said Duncan R. MacKenzie, CEO of NYSAR. “With the ongoing growth in selling prices, it is a great time for wavering sellers to come off the sidelines. If we see an uptick in seller activity and any meaningful growth in new residential construction, the housing market could make a run at last year’s sales record.”Sales posted in this year’s second-quarter slumped by 5.5 percent compared with Q2 2017 to wrap up at 31,952. This June’s closed sales total of 12,234 is a 10 percent drop from June 2017, says the NYSAR report, which looks at data compiled from that state’s MLS and includes townhomes, condominiums, and existing single-family homes.In terms of median sales price, the $266,500 figure reported for Q2 is an 11 percent leap from the second-quarter 2017 median of $240,100. The June 2018 median price of $280,000 represents a 9.8 percent increase compared with the same month last year, the report continues.Pending sales slid 2 percent to 68,974 through the first six months of 2018 compared with the same period in 2017. Second-quarter 2018 pending sales stood at 39,894—1.5 percent below Q2 2017. In addition, this June’s pending sales (13,421) dipped 3.5 percent compared with June 2017.As for months’ supply of inventory, that fell off 6.1 percent at the close of Q2 to 6.2 months supply. That compares with 6.6 months at the end Q2 2017. (By the way, a six- to 6.5-month supply is thought to be a balanced market.) Finally, inventory stacked up to 70,038, a decrease of 5.3 percent compared with second-quarter 2017, NYSAR says.  Print This Post 2018-07-24 Kristina Brewer The Best Markets For Residential Property Investors 2 days ago Servicers Navigate the Post-Pandemic World 2 days ago Governmental Measures Target Expanded Access to Affordable Housing 2 days ago Share Save About Author: Kristina Brewer Kristina Brewer is the Editorial Assistant of Publications for the Five Star Institute, including DS News and MReport magazine.

Congresswoman visits detainees on hunger strike, calls ICE force-feeding ‘unacceptable’

first_imgTom Williams/CQ Roll Call(EL PASO, Texas) — Eleven detainees at an ICE detention facility in El Paso, Texas, have been refusing food, some for more than 30 days, and six of the detainees are being force-fed per orders by a federal judge, U.S. Immigration and Customs Enforcement confirmed Thursday.An additional four other detainees are on a hunger strike at ICE detention centers nationwide — one each in the Miami, Phoenix, San Diego and San Francisco areas — bringing the number of detainees refusing to eat to 15 nationwide, according to ICE.The report prompted a visit from Rep. Veronica Escobar, a Democrat who represents El Paso, who said she was “deeply alarmed” and immediately requested to meet with those on hunger strike — many of whom, she said, had been detained for over a year.“This unacceptable. I’m closely monitoring this situation & as a new member of the House [Committee on the Judiciary,] vow to implement policies that provide increased oversight and accountability to ensure detainees are treated with dignity and respect. El Paso and our country are better than this,” Escobar wrote.Despite the statement from ICE, the number of protesters in the El Paso detention center could be as high as 30, volunteers with a non-profit that has been monitoring conditions of the men and a lawyer for one of the detainees told ABC News Thursday.Christina Fialho, co-founder and co-executive director of Freedom for Immigrants, said volunteers with her organization in El Paso have met directly with nine men on hunger strike. The men they’ve met with are from India and some were detained after seeking asylum at a port of entry.After facility staff moves them from their holding cells to the medical unit of the detention center they are force-fed through nasal tubes, according to Fialho and Ruby Kaur, a Michigan-based attorney who is representing one of the detainees. Neither Fialho’s organization nor Kaur has seen the court orders authorizing the force-feeding, they said. Kaur, who intends to go to El Paso, said she’s in the process of trying to obtain the orders.According to Freedom for Immigrants’ research, force-feeding is a rare occurrence during hunger strikes that have been reported in ICE detention facilities across the country, including a 750-person protest in Tacoma, Washington, in 2017.“Since May 2015, we’ve documented nearly 1,400 people who’ve been on strike in 18 different facilities and never witnessed force-feeding,” Fialho said. “Force-feeding seems like an escalation on ICE’s retaliatory tactics.”Some of the men are protesting their detainment as they hope to be released on parole while they fight against deportation. The men are in different stages in making their cases to be released, Fialho said, and “have all witnessed unsanitary and abusive conditions at the facility,” including threats of deportation from guards.The protest comes at a time when immigration advocates warn that detention of asylum seekers has increased and is being used as a method of deterrence by the Trump administration.“When people resort to such a drastic measure as stopping eating for 30 days, there are reasons — there are things that are forcing them to it, and reasons that we should be looking at what our detention policy is,” said Judy Rabinovitz, deputy director of the ACLU’s Immigrants’ Rights Project. The ACLU was part of a 2018 lawsuit that challenged the indefinite detention of asylum seekers who prove “credible fear” when they arrive in the U.S. A federal judge in Washington, D.C. sided with the ACLU and others that there had been a steep drop in releases of asylum seekers during the Trump administration.In a statement Thursday, ICE said it “fully respects the rights of all people to voice their opinion without interference” and “does not retaliate in any way against hunger strikers.”The men have experienced bleeding and vomiting from the nasal tube force-feeding, according to reports from the volunteers at Freedom for Immigrants who have been meeting with the detainees since before they began the hunger strike. Some have asked for wheelchairs and pillows for under their heads while they’re undergoing the procedure, Fialho said.Despite the requests, the men have not been seen in wheelchairs when they meet with the volunteers in the facility, Fialho said. “Volunteers say they’re shuffling, at best, because they’re in so much pain from the procedure,” she said.“They’ve lost considerable weight and since the force-feeding has occurred they seem even more emotionally and physically beaten up,” Fialho said.Two detainees first began a hunger strike on Dec. 30 and were ordered to undergo “non-consensual hydration/feeding” by a federal judge in Texas about two-and-a-half weeks later, according to ICE. Three more detainees began hunger strikes days later on Jan. 2 and four more began strikes on Jan. 5. On Wednesday, another two detainees joined the hunger strike, ICE said Thursday.Hunger strike protocols — which begins with a referral to a medical department, according to ICE policy — were triggered after detainees missed their ninth consecutive meal.Copyright © 2019, ABC Radio.

62% of letting agents say ban will reduce rental property quality

first_imgHome » News » 62% of letting agents say ban will reduce rental property quality previous nextRegulation & Law62% of letting agents say ban will reduce rental property qualityARLA research published reveals why total ban could be a disasterNigel Lewis3rd February 20170984 Views The Association of Residential Letting Agents (ARLA) has come out fighting on the fees ban, saying it opposes a total ban and that fess should instead be spread out over the first six months of the tenancy. It also says a ban is likely to have shocking consequences for the industry, tenants, landlords and the wider economy.ARLA has also completed research that it says shows 42% of letting agents think their headcount will reduce following a total ban, while 62% of the 1008 agents it canvassed think a ban will prompt a reduction in rental property quality, and 61% believe property management standards will drop.The research also reveals that letting agents “overwhelmingly” believe that rents will rise if a total ban is introduced, as they will “need to recoup the costs it takes to undertake the important jobs that fees currently cover [and] pass these on to landlords”, the research says.Agents spend eight hours on average completing the tasks needed to prepare a tenancy agreement including completing credit checks and collecting references, ARLA says.ARLA also claims that spreading the cost of fees to tenants over six months would make tenancies more affordable, enable agents to maintain current service levels and mean there would be no need for further fees to renew contracts.“When the Chancellor announced a full ban on letting agent fees in the Autumn Statement, we called the measure draconian and a crowd-pleaser. We stand by that,” says David Cox, ARLA’s managing director (pictured).“Nonetheless, we believe that ARLA’s proposal to spread the cost of the fees across the first six months of the tenancy will guard against the numerous unintended consequences of a full ban while also finding a solution that works best for the consumer.”letting fees ban letting agents landlords ARLA David Cox February 3, 2017Nigel LewisWhat’s your opinion?
