His article, da Costa cites Lael Brainard, Federal Reserve Governor, who suggests mandating higher capital requirements on banks—given the continued stability projected by the U.S. economy.”At a time when cyclical pressures have been building and bank profitability has been strong, it might be prudent to ask large banking organizations to fortify their capital buffers, which could subsequently be released if conditions warrant,” Brainard said in a speech last week. Referencing the last financial crisis, Forbes indicated a majority of financial experts are in agreement that banks’ heavy reliance on debt to fund their operations was a key factor in brewing trouble within the housing sector. Are Banks Recession Ready?According to its Comprehensive Capital Analysis and Review, or Stress Test released in July, the Fed found that U.S. firms’ common equity capital ratio has more than doubled, rising to 12.5 percent at the end of Q1 2017 from 5.5 percent in Q1 2009, a total increase of $750 billion to $1.25 trillion. However, during the same period, the percentage of consumers who think credit will become easier to access over the next year declined, according to its Survey of Consumer Expectations. In addition, the Federal Reserve ’s first Financial Stability Report was released in December and assessed the resilience of the U.S. financial system and the triggers that can impact its stability. Speaking about the report, Jerome Powell, the Chairman of the Fed said, “Together, these reports contain a wealth of information on our approach to financial stability and to financial regulation more broadly. By clearly and transparently explaining our policies, we aim to strengthen the foundation of democratic legitimacy that enables the Fed to serve the needs of the American public.” Demand Propels Home Prices Upward 2 days ago Governmental Measures Target Expanded Access to Affordable Housing 2 days ago Share Save Sign up for DS News Daily The Best Markets For Residential Property Investors 2 days ago Subscribe Related Articleslast_img read more

Wisconsin Game Grades: Bowling Green

first_imgOffense – A : The numbers speak for themselves when you take a look at the Wisconsin offense’s performance against Bowling Green. It would be hard not to award the unit an “A” after setting school records in both total yards and rushing yards. But it wasn’t just Melvin Gordon’s performance that led to the gaudy numbers put up by the offense Saturday. It was an all-around beat down by the offensive unit that also included 100-yard rushing performances from Corey Clement and Tanner McEvoy, and even recently-converted running back, Dare Ogunbowale, who finished with 94 yards. Although the passing game was rarely used, McEvoy did hit Sam Arneson for a 34-yard touchdown pass in the second quarter, who finished the day with a team-high 63 receiving yards.Defense – A- : The Wisconsin defense slowed down the fast-paced Bowling Green offense for the most part. It allowed only 17 points against a team that put up 124 combined points in first three outings of the season. Senior linebacker Derek Landisch led the way with two sacks and 3.5 tackles for loss, and tipped a pass in the red zone that freshman Lubern Figaro intercepted in the second quarter. The Badgers’ second turnover came when sophomore Vince Biegel forced a fumble that was recovered by freshman Alec James in the second. The Badgers got beat deep several times though and were prone to the big play, with both of Bowling Green’s touchdowns coming on plays of 60 and 35 yards out.Special Teams – B+ : When returner Kenzel Doe gets north to south, he is a formidable return man. He had two big punt returns of 57 and 38 yards that set up the Badger offense up in great field position. Doe’s two kick returns went for a combined 72 yards. He did muff a punt, but managed to recover and limit the damage. Coverage was solid other than a 40-yard kickoff return in the third quarter. Freshman kicker Rafael Gaglianone hit two field goals (43, 28) in the fourth quarter, but missed an extra point in the second quarter.Coaching – A : The Badgers’ coaching staff did an excellent job on both the offensive and defensive side of the ball Saturday. In the early going on offense, offensive coordinator Andy Ludwig called a diverse set of plays that allowed the run game to open up after the first quarter. His use of dual-threat Tanner McEvoy early on forced the Bowling Green defense to have to choose between McEvoy or Melvin Gordon, which really helped Gordon have the day he did. On defense, defensive coordinator Dave Aranda had his unit well prepared for the up-tempo style of Bowling Green. Despite the game being tied at seven early, the defense dug in and seemed to be ready for any look the Falcons were going to throw at them, thanks to the coaches who made sure the right packages were on the field for the Badgers.last_img read more

No. 23 Pitt slips by Villanova 73-64 in overtime

first_imgby Will GravesPITTSBURGH (AP) — Dante Taylor spent four years at Pittsburgh trying to live up to sky high expectations.The former McDonald’s All-American slogged through lengthy stretches of mediocre play, his production never quite matching the 6-foot-10 center’s massive promise.Still, the player coach Jamie Dixon called “the best teammate we’ve ever had” found a way to provide an exclamation point to both his career and his team’s final home game as a member of the Big East.Taylor’s emphatic breakaway dunk in the final seconds of overtime closed out a 73-64 comeback victory over Villanova and gave Taylor and best friend Tray Woodall an emotional sendoff on Senior Day.“It was the best way to end it,” said Taylor, who had seven points and six rebounds in his first start in more than a year.Perhaps it was the only way for the 23-ranked Panthers to wrap up 31 seasons in one of the nation’s toughest conferences.Pitt (23-7, 11-6 Big East) trailed by nine in the second half before tying it late in regulation and controlling the extra session to put a dent in Villanova’s NCAA tournament chances.“You knew it was going to be like this,” Dixon said. “You knew it was going to come down to a couple possessions. That’s what it’s been every time we played (Villanova).”Though Taylor and Woodall (13 points, 11 assists) provided an emotional lift it was the play of Talib Zanna and youngsters Durand Johnson and James Robinson that propelled Pitt to its third straight victory.Talib Zanna scored nine of his 14 points in overtime and added a career-high 19 rebounds. Johnson knocked down three 3-pointers to help Pitt claw back and Robinson — who hadn’t made a 3-pointer in weeks — hit two big ones.The first tied the game at 57 with 33 seconds left in regulation and the second gave Pitt a five-point cushion with 30 seconds remaining in the extra period.Villanova coach Jay Wright wanted Robinson to have the ball in his hands with a chance to shoot. Wright just didn’t expect the ball to end up going through the net twice. Robinson had made just 5 of 21 3-pointers in 16 Big East games.“We wanted to help off of him,” Wright said “But we didn’t want to give him an open shot. It’s execution on our part. We’ve got to do a better job.”Ryan Arcidiacono led Villanova with 23 points but the Wildcats (18-12, 9-8) let an opportunity to pad their NCAA tournament resume slip away. Mouphtaou Yarou added 14 points and eight rebounds and JayVaughn Pinkston chipped in 13 but Villanova has now dropped two straight at perhaps the most important time of year.“You know you’re running out of time,” Wright said. “Yeah it’s tough but it’s a season. We’ve got to bounce back and prepare for the next game, that’s what a season is all about.”It’s a sentiment Zanna has learned from during a turbulent four months. He was easily Pitt’s best player during the nonconference portion of the schedule but has struggled in Big East play. He came in averaging just 7.0 points since league play began, but matched that total during the first two minutes of overtime as Pitt finally took control.Zanna opened the extra session with a traditional three-point play then added two free throws and a short jumper to give Pitt a 64-57 lead.“I just kept playing, kept crashing the glass and the ball kept falling into my hands,” Zanna said.Villanova pulled within 66-64 on a 3-pointer by Arcidiacono but Robinson responded by calmly draining a 3 from the left corner with 30 seconds left and the Wildcats never scored again.Taylor did, his dunk capping 24 mostly energetic minutes as he filled in for freshman center Steven Adams, who was forced to sit with a sprained left ankle. Playing in front of his mother and members of his extended family, Taylor played with grit if not always grace, a perfect metaphor for his career.When Dixon pulled Taylor with a second remaining and the outcome decided, Taylor clutched Woodall and walked off the floor in triumph.“He’s done everything we’ve asked and more,” Dixon said. “He got the ovation he deserved.”The final regular season game in a rivalry that dates back to 1960 looked a lot like the 64 meetings that came before. Neither team could muster much momentum early as things turned physical quickly.The first half featured more fouls (21) than field goals (18) as Pittsburgh was unable to maintain an emotional lift from Taylor, making his first start of the season on senior day with several members of his extended family in attendance for the first time.Even with the 7-foot Adams out, Villanova opted to work from the outside in. Arcidiacono knocked down 3 3-pointers in the opening 20 minutes as the Wildcats — desperately trying to get back to the NCAA tournament after missing it last spring — took a 28-25 lead into the break.It didn’t last, as Pitt closed a proud chapter in its history while eyeing the start of a new one next fall when the Panthers join Syracuse as new members of the ACC.“You wonder how it can get any better than this in playing in the best conference in the country,” Dixon said. “But our hopes and our plans are to make the ACC the best conference in the country. That’s why they came after us and Syracuse. They didn’t come after us to pull it down. They came after us to build it up.”Follow Will Graves on twitter at FINAL HOME GAME–Pittsburgh’s Dante Taylor, right, shoots a hook over Villanova’s Mouphtaou Yarou on Sunday, March 3, in Pittsburgh.

Blog from the Pod — Bantams return from northern road trip with bronze

first_imgA glitch in the network held up the final installment of the Tyler Podgorenko blog from Smithers, site of the B.C. Hockey Tier III Bantam Rep Championships.The West Kootenay rep, Nelson Leafs, managed to rebound from a pair of tough losses — including a setback in the semi final — to edge Revelstoke in the bronze medal final.Nelson defenceman Tyler Podgrenko has one last blog on what happened last week in Smithers.(Thursday) we again had to wake up at 8 a.m. for our final game as a team and for some of us our last game in Bantams.The game was for Bronze and we were playing the Revelstoke Grizzlies whom we have played three times before in exhibition and tournament (play).The game began very slow and by the end of the first we were winning 1-0.  The game then started to rise and both teams began to play hard and before you knew it we were up 3-2 with some great goals from our forwards. In the third the game began to  be a rough one and Revelstoke was starting to get penalty after penalty and began to play with no intention to win.  We were up 4-3 and the clock began to count down and we ended up winning 4-3 taking home the bronze. Right after the game our parents were eager to get home and we began our long journey home. After nine hours of  driving we stopped in Kamloops for the night and stayed in the Thompson Hotel on the main street. Waking up in the morning after a rough night with little sleep was tough after many players were sick from receiving the flu that night and some with colds. In the morning we all left the hotel for our last chunk of traveling to take on and by 2:30 p.m. the majority of the team was back home in Nelson. Even though not reaching our ultimate goal of winning the provincials i believe that we all gained much knowledge on what it takes,and also many memories. As a team we all improved tremendously and also individually.last_img read more

He was 52 on March 23. Winning owner Annette Bishop is from Denver.center_img TYLER BAZE, GET HAPPY MISTER, WINNER: “He was really nice to ride, a really classy horse. I’ve never been on him but I watched all his replays and rode him accordingly. It looks like he can do anything; he loves to run. I let him run out of there and had a beautiful trip. When Pure Tactics and Sweet Swap hooked up in front of me and opened up five I knew they were flying. I just took my time. When the time was right he just . . . he’s so big and strong and he has a huge stride. Just a really classy horse. MARK TSAGALAKIS, GET HAPPY MISTER, WINNER: Asked about trying him on the grass for the first time: “Right now, there weren’t a lot of choices. The horse was doing super. It was time to let him rock and roll. It was fun. This is my first stakes win.”Asked how many years he’s been training: “Too many to count, probably close to 25 years. I’ve won some races, but never a stakes. The race came up, he was ready to go, we were eligible for it, it was like ‘Let’s give it a try.’ We had him out on the turf the other day, he seemed to like it, and he did.“The plan is to go back home to Colorado and then come back here in the fall and run here again. We’ll play it by ear but that was the original plan and we’ll just enjoy it for now and think about that next week.”ANNETTE BISHOP, OWNER AND MOTHER-IN-LAW OF TRAINER MARK TSAGALAKIS, WINNER: “I have a very good trainer. He calls the shots.“I bought him at a 2-year-old sale in Arapahoe. I’ve been in the business about 14 or 15 years. He has a little history with his name, Get Happy Mister. We were sitting at the auction and I was with my trainer, Butch Gleason. He was getting nervous because everyone was bidding on him. I just said, ‘What? What’s your problem? Do you want that horse?’ He said ‘Yes!’ so I said ‘then get happy!’ and that’s how he was named.“He’s been a joy. I don’t know his limits and after today, I have no idea. I’m just amazed that he did as well as he did today. He’s just been training out of his skin. It’s all due to Mark, he takes his time. He takes his pulse every two hours.”last_img read more

Raphoe school and hockey club and LYIT gets €250,000 funding

first_imgMinister for Education and Skills Joe McHugh has heralded sports funding worth almost €250,000 for a new hockey pitch at Royal & Prior Comprehensive in Raphoe and gym and training equipment at Letterkenny IT.“The Royal & Prior and Raphoe Hockey Club have a strong tradition producing top sports talent, including Olympians,” Minister McHugh said.“A grant of €112,500 has been approved – a huge reward for the school and the community. Now they have got the green light for special resurfacing works to the hockey pitch as part of funding through the Regional Sports Capital programme. “I want to thank Minister for Sport and Tourism Brendan Griffin and the Department for seeing the benefits of this project especially as this comes on the back of €1.4m for dozens of clubs in the first round of Sports Capital last week.”Some €112,500 funding was approved under the Regional Sports Capital Programme for Royal & Prior and Raphoe Hockey Club while Letterkenny IT was approved for €98,000.The Minister said: “This is a huge boost for LYIT as well, providing new gym and outdoor equipment for the teams, clubs, students and everyone else using their facilities.“In the long run it will help keep people involved in sport, encourage more people to keep fit and train.” Minister McHugh added: “Hockey is riding the crest of a wave with our women’s team going from strength to strength and bringing players from across the island to compete in the green shirt and set their sights firmly on Olympic glory in Tokyo 2020.“I hope the investment on the ground in Royal and Prior will reap more rewards by providing a top quality surface to help the current crop of players excel and to encourage more young people to take up the sport.“Raphoe and the Royal and Prior have a brilliant sporting tradition with the likes of Richard Eaton and Sabrina Barnett in hockey, Olympic badminton star Chloe Magee and family not to mention all those behind the scenes, coaching and playing sports and knows where these top class facilities will take the school and the local team. I wish you every success.”Fine Gael election candidate Councillor Martin Harley said: “This is tremendous news for the area. There is a big community in the county who are so supportive of the sports at Royal & prior and the Raphoe Hockey Club. It is a great boost for everyone associated with hockey and with only a small number of applications being approved it’s a sure sign of how the Government will support sports in the regions.”Raphoe school and hockey club and LYIT gets €250,000 funding was last modified: November 20th, 2019 by StephenShare this:Click to share on Facebook (Opens in new window)Click to share on Twitter (Opens in new window)Click to share on LinkedIn (Opens in new window)Click to share on Reddit (Opens in new window)Click to share on Pocket (Opens in new window)Click to share on Telegram (Opens in new window)Click to share on WhatsApp (Opens in new window)Click to share on Skype (Opens in new window)Click to print (Opens in new window)last_img read more

Organize Your DaVinci Resolve Work Area with New Compound Nodes

first_imgIn a fast-paced session, it’s easy to lose track of each node’s function in the tree, especially when time doesn’t allow for labelling each one. DaVinci Resolve 12’s compound nodes offer a solution.When time doesn’t allow for proper labeling, it’s easy to lose track of each node’s function in the tree. New to DaVinci Resolve 12, the compound node condenses the complexity of the node tree, which can organize client comments or help otherwise clean up the node editor. Compound nodes can also allow for various workflow applications, like applying one correction that affects multiple nodes.Or, consider a scenario: perhaps you’ve been addressing an art director’s comments for several minutes, creating multiple serial nodes that can be stepped back through if needed. Let’s say the art director now wants to toggle the result of all of those changes. The easiest way to show this would be to enable and disable a single node. In this case, compound nodes can also help.To use this new feature, nodes must be in direct sequence with each other; the first and third node in a serial node tree can’t become a compound node. First, command-click on each node to be included. The active node doesn’t need to be one of these nodes.Below, the third and fourth node are selected, denoted by the red bar above the thumbnail. The second node will not be included in the compound node even though it is the current node, as seen by the red box highlight.Right-click on any node and select Create Compound Node at the bottom.Create Compound Node is revealed when several nodes in sequence with each other are highlighted.The selected nodes will be grouped and the new node will be identified by a thicker border resembling a stack of cards. It’s subtle, which is why Blackmagic probably thought it was a good idea to label the node by default.The red border becomes thicker than when on a single node, but it’s subtle, so it’s best to keep the compound labelled to avoid confusion.From here, you can step into the group by right-clicking on it and selecting Show Compound Node.This will focus on only this group, functioning like the main node graph area and allowing for further corrections. To leave the nested group and return to the master correction, right-click in the work area and choose Exit Compound Node.Additional corrections can be performed directly on the compound node without stepping into it, or it can be enabled and disabled to satisfy the client scenario described above.Compound nodes can be nested again if needed. One useful application is to limit the compound node with a qualifier, especially if applying something from the Powergrade that features a lot of processing.Change the name of the compound node to something less generic by right-clicking it and selecting Change Label, the same functionality as other nodes. Inputs, outputs, and options for alpha channels can also be added.Labelling the compound node something more specific aids clarity, especially in long, grueling sessions.I hope a feature to destruct a compound node will be implemented by the time of the official non-beta release of Resolve 12, but at the time of this writing no details have been given.What are your favorite new features in DaVinci Resolve 12? Let us know in the comments below!last_img read more

But then a poor drop shot hit his side of the net tape. Next came a double-fault that gave Anderson a set point and prompted Kyrgios to spike his racket, which got mangled and bounced so far it landed at the feet of a line judge behind the baseline.That drew a warning from the chair umpire for racket abuse. But Kyrgios was hardly done. After gifting Anderson the set with a second consecutive double-fault, Kyrgios trudged to the sideline, head bowed, sat down and proceeded to whack his racket six times against a metal box. The loud reverberations caused Anderson to turn to his right and check out what was going on — and drew a point penalty, assessed at the beginning of the third set.ADVERTISEMENT “I don’t know if that’s the best role model you want,” Kyrgios acknowledged with a smile, after being told by a reporter that a boy sitting in the front row at Court 3 was following this display from close-up. “But, I mean, I’m not trying to show anybody, really, my frustration. I just do it for myself.“I’ve been doing it my whole career, really. I think it’s just a habit now.”As for getting in his own way during the course of a match, well, that has become something of a habit, too.And opponents are aware.Here was the way Anderson described his own mindset as they moved into the third set: “I really felt if I could stay on top of him early on, there was a chance that maybe he would give me a couple games here and there.”Kyrgios’ explanation for his collapse was that he hadn’t been able to have the proper practice or preparation heading into Roland Garros, in part because he was troubled by injury issues. He hit only four aces over the last two sets after producing 12 over the first two, but dismissed the idea that he was dealing with something physical.“The surprising thing is, I was in a winning position today,” Kyrgios said, “and I still could have won.”What really matters, of course, is that he did not. As men’s tennis searches for the face of its next generation, perhaps someone who one day will fill a void left by folks such as Roger Federer, Rafael Nadal, Novak Djokovic and Andy Murray, there are those who believe Kyrgios, 22, has the flashy game and attention-attracting personality to fit the bill.Still, it takes on-court success to lead a sport, and Kyrgios’ uneven attitude during matches can derail him at a moment’s notice. That happened Thursday, and it was noticed by Anderson — a 31-year-old South African ranked 56th and only once a quarterfinalist in 31 appearances at Grand Slam tournaments.FEATURED STORIESSPORTSSEA Games: Biñan football stadium stands out in preparedness, completionSPORTSPrivate companies step in to help SEA Games hostingSPORTSMalditas save PH from shutout“While he was sort of getting into his own head and struggling with some (of) his own battles,” Anderson said, “I didn’t give him a way to get back in the match.”Other seeded players lost on Day 5 of the clay-court major, when No. 1 Andy Murray and No. 3 Stan Wawrinka moved into the third round.
