Youngsters urged to be safe over graduation weekends

first_img Facebook Pinterest Twitter Facebook Pinterest Local NewsCrime WhatsApp Bryn Dodd shared her first-hand experience of the effects of drinking and driving with members of the media on Friday morning at the Odessa Police Department.Dodd’s message is aimed at recent high school graduates as part of Odessa Crime Stoppers’ Project Graduation that is scheduled to take place over the next two weekends.On Sept. 19, 2020, Dodd’s 18-year-old son, Evan Hill, was killed in a drunken driving collision. Hill was one of three teenagers that died in the two-vehicle collision. Hill was a back seat passenger.“His absence has left a hole in my heart and the hearts of all those who loved him,” Dodd said during the press conference. “… Because of alcohol my life is divided into two parts, before Evan died and after Evan died. Because of alcohol three teens died and two teens were seriously injured and now live with survivor’s guilt. Because of alcohol three families are broken and lost and trying to adapt in a world without these teens. Because of alcohol, a young man faces criminal charges along with mourning the loss of his best friend.“I’m standing here today to beg you to not drink and drive. If you are 21 and older, don’t buy alcohol for minors or host parties to serve alcohol to minors. One decision, one moment could change everything. Tomorrow isn’t promised or guaranteed.”Odessa Crime Stoppers is teaming up with local law enforcement agencies for Project Graduation, which is a two-weekend operation that is aimed at underage drinking, parties and drug use. The operation will take place Saturday (today for print), May 28 and May 29.Law enforcement agencies involved in the operation are Odessa Police Department, ECISD Police, ECHD Police, UTPB Police, Ector County Sheriff’s Office and the Texas Department of Public Safety.DPS spokesperson Sgt. Oscar Villarreal said on Friday morning that graduation is supposed to be the beginning of a graduates’ adult life, not the final chapter.“You are just starting your adult life,” Villarreal said of recent high school graduates. “All you’ve done is take the baby steps. Now life starts and welcome to the world.“You have military service, college, technical school or whatever your career path is. This is only the beginning.”Susan Rogers, spokesperson for Odessa Crime Stoppers, said during Friday’s press conference anyone with information that leads to at least one arrest or citation there will be a $200 reward. Rogers explained that the reward could increase depending on the size of the party or what is going on at the party.Odessa Police Department Chief Michael Gerke said graduation is a major milestone in a person’s life and not to ruin that with one bad decision. He also urged parents to not host parties where there will be underage drinking.“There are tons and tons of citations, arrests or charges that can be filed and we will file them,” Gerke said. “It’s the Odessa Police Department. It’s our local partners. It’s our state partners. We are all going to be out there.”Ector County Sheriff Mike Griffis said it’s not cool to buy a young person alcohol.Dodd said there are parents that believe if a party happens under their watch that they are in control of the situation, but she explained that control is gone when one child leaves without their knowledge and something bad happens.“It’s still very dangerous,” Dodd said. “Please don’t do it.” WhatsApp Twitter Youngsters urged to be safe over graduation weekends Previous articleJordan top team in Battle of the BluebonnetsNext articleDAILY OIL PRICE: May 21, 2021 Royal McGregor By Royal McGregor – May 21, 2021 last_img read more

Suntrust Settles HAMP Investigation

first_img  Print This Post in Featured, Government, Headlines, News Derek Templeton is an attorney based in Dallas, Texas. He practices in the areas of real estate, financial services, and general corporate transactional law. His experience includes time as an Attorney Adviser for the U.S. Small Business Administration and as General Counsel for a nonprofit organization in Dallas. A self-avowed “policy junkie,” he has a keen interest in the effect that evolving federal policy has on the mortgage, default servicing, and greater housing industries. The Best Markets For Residential Property Investors 2 days ago July 3, 2014 830 Views In a filing with the SEC, Suntrust Banks, Inc. announced Thursday afternoon that it would pay up to $320 million to halt a criminal investigation into whether it had dealt inappropriately with homeowners who were looking to take advantage of the Home Affordable Modification Program (HAMP).Several government agencies had been investigating SunTrust in connection with complaints that it misled homeowners who sought mortgage relief from SunTrust through HAMP and failed to timely process HAMP applications.”Resolving this legacy matter enhances our ability to focus on the future and support the continued housing recovery,” said Jerome Lienhard, SunTrust Mortgage, Inc. President and Chief Executive Officer.  “We recognize that there were deficiencies in our administration of HAMP during the recession, and through the improvements we have made to our internal processes and this restitution plan, we are demonstrating our commitment to meet the high standards that we set for ourselves and that our customers expect.”Under the terms of the agreement, Suntrust agreed to pay a minimum of $179 million in consumer remediation, a number that could inflate to $274 million as necessary. Additionally, the company will pay $20 million to fund housing counseling, $10 million in remediation to Fannie Mae and Freddie Mac, and 16 million to the Treasury Department.The agreement marks another enforcement victory for the government as they continue to resolve complaints related to the company’s dealings. Last month the Bank agreed to pay nearly one billion dollars to resolve complaints about actions that the government termed “systemic mortgage servicing misconduct,” including failing to promptly and accurately apply borrower payments, robo-signing, and other illegal foreclosure practice.Michael P. Stephens, Acting Inspector General of the Federal Housing Finance Agency Office of Inspector General reaffirmed the federal government’s commitment to consumer protection.“Today’s agreement with SunTrust underlines the importance of holding accountable those individuals and companies who pledge to ensure that homeowners are protected at all times; especially during times when the homeowner is seeking to save their home through a loan modification”,  said Stephens in a statement. “SunTrust has conceded that their HAMP program had numerous deficiencies and has harmed a significant amount of homeowners.  This behavior will not be tolerated.  We are proud to have worked with our law enforcement partners on this case.”In addition to the monetary penalty, SunTrust has agreed to increase its loss mitigation staff, monitor their mortgage modification process, and provide semi-annual reports regarding compliance with the agreement.

A Breakdown of FEMA’s New Flood Insurance Rating Procedures

first_imgHome / Daily Dose / A Breakdown of FEMA’s New Flood Insurance Rating Procedures April 27, 2021 1,048 Views Demand Propels Home Prices Upward 2 days ago Servicers Navigate the Post-Pandemic World 2 days ago Demand Propels Home Prices Upward 2 days ago The Federal Emergency Management Agency (FEMA) is responsible for pinpointing high-risk zones where property owners with federally backed mortgages must purchase flood insurance. The problem is, as reported last summer, FEMA’s maps of areas required to hold flood insurance have historically proved unreliable.Now the agency is rallying to more effectively assess homeowners’ risks. FEMA’s National Flood Insurance Program (NFIP) recently rolled out new flood insurance rating procedures, set to go into effect in October and meant to “equitably distribute the cost of insurance for potential flood damage based on the risk a property faces,” according to a report from LendingTree and Value Penguin’s data writer Andrew Hurst.Under new rules released last week, hundreds of thousands of Americans in coastal areas and other flood zones will pay much more to insure their homes.According to Hurst, before Risk Rating 2.0, the agency primarily evaluated flood risk by using flood zone maps, which communicate the likelihood of an area being inundated by a 100-year flood event. On paper, this translates to a 26% risk of flood damage during the lifetime of a conventional 30-year mortgage,” he noted. “By moving away from a reliance on flood zone mapping to show a community’s flood risk, FEMA can illustrate the unique risk a property faces. Risk Rating 2.0 models a property’s risk through a variety of considerations, including probable inland flooding, historical storm surges, cost to rebuild the property, historical losses, elevation, and natural surroundings and barriers.”Hurst writes, “the cost of flood insurance will increase for more than 3.8 million policies, though just 4% of all policies will see the highest increases after FEMA’s new methodology is implemented.”Dubbed “Risk Rating 2.0,” FEMA’s updated system ups the cost of flood insurance for 3,846,702 homeowners. However, only 192,836 of these policyholders, or 4%, will experience the upper-tier price surge. That said, 1.2 million or 23% of flood insurance policies, will see immediate cost reductions.The states wherein residents will be most impacted include Hawaii (87% or property owners will see increased premiums), Texas (86%), Mississippi (84%), West Virginia (83%), Florida (80%), and Louisiana (80%). More than 10,000 homeowners each in Florida, Texas, Louisiana, New Jersey, and New York will face the highest price increases.In Alaska, more than eight in 10 policies will increase. But at least half of the policies in the District of Columbia, Maryland, Michigan, and Utah will have lower rates as a result of 2.0.Here’s what else Hurst had to say about it:”FEMA’s rate changes promise to set right the problem of policyholders paying rates that don’t reflect the true risk they face, but rate increases will be moderate,” he notes. “Despite the fact that many homeowners will need to pay more for flood insurance after Risk Rating 2.0 goes into effect, existing limits on annual rate increases will still be in effect. This means that most homes won’t experience year-over-year price hikes that are more than 18%.”He added that federally backed flood insurance policies come with a 30-day waiting period before taking effect.”Between the time you purchase a policy and the date when that policy becomes effective, you effectively have no coverage for flood damage. You can consider private flood insurance, which can be cheaper, allows for more customization, and has a shorter waiting period (10-14 days).”The full assessment can be read at valuepenguin.com.Want to learn more about navigating disaster? Five Star’s Disaster Preparedness 2021 Virtual Experience will be held Wednesday, July 14.

BACKGROUND OF THE PETITION The petitioner, Mr. Rajat Vats has approached the High Court seeking directions on the Delhi Education department to consider the exemption of nursery admission for this year academic session. According to the petitioner, the purpose of nursery education is to have an adequate play school environment for small kids who can be familiar with a similar schooling environment in the post nursery education. Nursery education, according to the petition, also allows kids to develop schooling behaviour by stabilizing their physical and emotional well being as they grow up and to ultimately make them ready for promotion to higher classes. The petition states that such an environment is not possible to be provided to the nursery kids in the wake of covid-19 pandemic since physical classes have been restricted and the sessions are continuing on online video conferencing. In such a situation, it will be appropriate for the schools to not grant admissions in nursery classes for the age group of 3 to 4 years as the primary purpose of nursery education remains defeated till the time online classes are in place. The plea also states that such an act of Government of NCT of Delhi of imparting nursery education to small kids by way of online class culture is thereby violative of the rights of parents and children under Art. 14 and 21 of the Constitution of India. The same petitioner had approached the Delhi High Court in early 2020 seeking directions on the Govt of NCT of Delhi and Department of Education to provide relaxation or to suspend fees charged by private schools for facilities except for the tuition fees for the months of April, May and June 2020 in the view of pandemic. Subsequently, a single judge bench of the Delhi High Court comprising of Justice Pratibha M Singh vide order dated 20th April 2020 dismissed the petition by observing that the act of charging tuition fees was valid as the schools are organizing online classes wherein teachers and staff members are discharging their functions by imparting coursework over online platforms and therefore there is a burden on schools to pay their staff. Hence, the court declined to intervene in the matter. Case Name: Rajat Vats v. Government of NCT of Delhi, Department of Education W.P.

She is working on a fantasy book and has written historical fiction but has not attempted to have any of her work published.“I love reading and writing,” she said. “After my quiet time in the morning, I write.

She is surrounded by books and enjoys the company of those who, like her, enjoy reading.”Wiggins said being a volunteer is rewarding in many ways.“I would encourage those who have leisure time to be a volunteer at the Book Nook,” she said. “We need volunteers and I’m sure there are other places and organizations that would welcome volunteers.

She went in search of books that she had not read and in hopes of finding volunteer opportunities. Wiggins found exactly what she was looking for and hoping for at the Troy Public Library – books of personal interest and an opportunity to volunteer at the Troy Public Library’s Book Nook. Remember America’s heroes on Memorial Day Pike County Sheriff’s Office offering community child ID kits Sponsored Content By Jaine Treadwell “I met Iris Byrd, a volunteer at the Book Nook. She said volunteers were needed and volunteering at the Book Nook would be something I would enjoy,” Wiggins said. “I was not just interested; I was anxious to volunteer.”Wiggins volunteers at the TPL Book Nook half days and all day when needed. She likes being surrounded by books and visiting with people who also enjoy reading.“I was surprised how many people visit the Book Nook and that there is such a variety of ages and interests,” she said. “Teachers, students and young kids visit the Book Nook and community people from all walks of life, including a large number of truck drivers. Most of the truck drivers are looking for books on tape to play while they are driving.”For Wiggins, the wide range of visitors to the Book Nook gives her the opportunity to meet and get to know people from all across the area. Paula Wiggins is one of eight active volunteers at the Troy Public Library’s Book Nook. Patrick Trice is a regular at the Book Nook and selected three books Thursday for weekend reading. The books at the Nook can be purchased for prices that might be considered by some as a steal.

She loves sitting on her back porch and watching the sun set each late afternoon.Roeton is a perfect place for one who is an avid reader and a writer. Latest Storieslast_img read more

That means that they provide flex space as a service,” Sulentic said on the company’s fourth quarter earnings call Tuesday. “They are not taking long-term leases and then turning around and doing short-term leases with occupiers.”Earlier this week, CBRE announced it paid about $200 million to purchase the stake in Industrious, valuing the company at more than $600 million ahead of a potential IPO later this year.When it comes to future M&A deals for service companies, Sulentic said CBRE will eye other platforms that similarly are not very capital-intensive.“We’re mostly pretty asset-light. And I’m going to say it again, one of the things we like so much about Industrious: very asset-light,” he said.As for CBRE’s performance, the company posted earnings for the fourth quarter of $753 million, an increase of 9 percent over the same period last year. Earnings for 2020 ended up at $1.89 billion, down more than 8 percent from 2019.During the call, Sulentic also touched on CBRE’s $350 million SPAC, which he said is targeting companies in areas like construction services, smart buildings and data centers.“We’re very differently situated than most SPAC sponsors,” he said. “We’re not really thought of as a financial sponsor. We’re thought of as a strategic sponsor, and the way the SPAC is financially structured — where our upside comes only when the company that we would ‘de-SPAC’ grows in value — speaks to our confidence that we can find a target partner and help them grow their business.”Contact Rich Bockmann Email Address* Message*center_img Full Name* Tags Housing MarketResidential Real Estatelast_img read more

Extensive dissolution of live pteropods in the Southern Ocean

first_imgThe carbonate chemistry of the surface ocean is rapidlychanging with ocean acidification, a result of human activities. In the upper layers of the Southern Ocean, aragonite—a metastable form of calcium carbonate with rapid dissolution kinetics—may become undersaturated by 2050 (ref. 2). Aragonite undersaturation is likely to affect aragonite-shelled organisms, which can dominate surface water communities in polar regions. Here we present analyses of specimens of the pteropod Limacina helicina antarctica that were extracted live from the Southern Ocean early in 2008. We sampled from the top 200m of the water column, where aragonite saturation levels were around 1, as upwelled deep water is mixed with surface water containing anthropogenic CO2. Comparing the shell structure with samples from aragonite-supersaturated regions elsewhere under a scanning electron microscope, we found severe levels of shell dissolution in the undersaturated region alone. According to laboratory incubations of intact samples with a range of aragonite saturation levels, eight days of incubation in aragonite saturation levels of 0.94–1.12 produces equivalent levels of dissolution. As deep-water upwelling and CO2 absorption by surface waters is likely to increase as a result of human activities2,4, we conclude that upper ocean regions where aragonite-shelled organisms are affected by dissolution are likely to expand.last_img read more

Ice melt influence on summertime net community production along the Western Antarctic Peninsula

first_imgThe Western Antarctic Peninsula (WAP) is a highly productive marine environment that is undergoing rapid change, with consequences for productivity and total ecosystem carbon cycling. We present continuous underway O2/Ar estimates of net community production (NCPO2Ar) in austral summer 2012, 2013 and 2014 at sub-kilometer horizontal resolution within the Palmer Long-Term Ecological Research (Pal-LTER) grid region of the WAP. Substantial spatial variability is observed with NCPO2Ar ranging from 0 to 790 mmol O2 m−2 d−1 and considerable interannual variability with mean values in the grid region of 54.4±48.5, 44.6±40.5, and 85.6±75.9 mmol O2 m−2 d−1 in 2012, 2013 and 2014 respectively. Based on a strong correlation (r2=0.83) between residence time integrated NCPO2Ar and NCPDIC derived from seasonal DIC drawdown, we find the observed NCPO2Ar spatial and interannual variability to be consistent with the December–January NCPDIC magnitude. Seeking to explain the mechanistic drivers of NCP in the WAP, we observe a linear relationship between NCPO2Ar and meteoric water content derived from δ18O and salinity. This correlation may be due to Fe supply from glacial melt and/or strengthening of stratification and relief of light limitation. Elevated surface Fe availability, as indicated by Fv/Fm and measurements of surface water dissolved Fe and Mn (a rough proxy for recent potential Fe availability), and shallower, more stable mixed layers are present where meteoric water and/or sea ice melt is high near the coast. Light limitation is evident in the WAP when mixed layer depths are greater than ~40 m. Additionally we document hotspots of NCP associated with submarine canyons along the WAP. While it is difficult to predict how the physical-biological system might evolve under changing climatic conditions, it is evident that NCP, and potentially carbon flux out of the mixed layer, along the WAP will be sensitive to shifts in meltwater input and timing.last_img read more
