However, GameDay is a rare sight in Fort Worth as only one of the five games featured the Horned Frogs on campus in 2009.That eight-year gap between home GameDay appearances is what drove many students to camp out in the commons the night before GameDay.Trent Attyah, sophomore sports broadcasting major, described GameDay like Christmas Morning for college students.“We haven’t been in this situation since 2009,” Attyah said. “We have no idea when we will have this opportunity again.”Sophomore Trent Attyah with his sign for GameDay Oct. 6, 2017.

Photographer roughed by president’s bodyguards in church

Ojow replied that the president had already been photographed many times while attending mass.The situation deteriorated when Ojow tried to photograph Kibaki as he knelt to receive communion. One of the bodyguards grabbed him, tried to take his camera, bundled him out of the church by a side door and then roughed him up, with the help of another man. Ojow immediately filed a complaint at a nearby police station.The officiating priest, Father Samuel Mukua, tried to calm things down and apologised to Ojow, but Bishop Maurice Crowley said Ojow should have asked himself if it was appropriate to take pictures of the president while he was praying.

Boomers Trade Homeownership for Renting

first_img Demand Propels Home Prices Upward 2 days ago Previous: DS News Webcast: Monday 3/14/2016 Next: 15 Neighborhoods Investors Should Know About Is Rise in Forbearance Volume Cause for Concern? 2 days ago Baby Boomers Homeownership Renting 2016-03-14 Brian Honea Servicers Navigate the Post-Pandemic World 2 days ago As the Baby Boomer generation grows older and enter those “empty-nester” years, many are swapping out their long-tome homes to enter the rental market.A small percentage of Boomers are expected to  convert from owning to renting in their empty-nest years, a report John Burns by Jeff Kottmeier said.The 55 and older population is often overlooked—especially when the spotlight has been on millennials for so long—but they are a large part of the housing market.The National Association of Home Builders (NAHB) and American Community Survey data found that over 48 million households in the U.S. are headed by someone who is 55 or older, accounting for about 42 percent of all households.Senior households have been rising slowly over the decades, but this is about to change in the coming years. Urban Institute’s analysis of housing trends determined that senior households are expected to grow dramatically by 2030.The Institute found in 1990, there were 20 million households for seniors ages 65 and up. In 2010, this number had reached 25.8 million, and by 2030, the institute projects that aging baby boomer households will reach 46 million.“This dramatic growth will occur among both senior homeowners and renters, Urban Institute said. “Our research suggests that from 2010 to 2030, senior homeowners will increase from 20 million to almost 34 million, and senior renters—who include both homeowners who will shift to renting and baby boomers who already rent—will increase from 5.8 million to 12.2 millionThe John Burns report determined the following about the relationship between renters and Boomers:In many metros, older renters have been driving demand.These renters rent by choice. They prefer an urban or suburban mixed-use location that provides convenient access to retail, dining, and cultural amenities.Mature renters prefer smaller, more intimate developments (~180 to 220 units) over large apartment complexes.Although 55 percent of newly developed apartments are studio/one-bedrooms units, there is significant demand for larger three-bedroom units, often appealing to boomers. A number of our developer clients wish they had planned a larger mix of 3+ bedroom units in their developments.Contrary to history, three-bedroom units are now often renting for more per square foot than two-bedroom units.”As architects, developers, and investors plan for new communities, consider designing rental communities in locations that cater to the growing demand of boomers,” Kottmeier wrote. “To be clear, we are not forecasting the end of homeownership. We just expect a continued increase in the number of boomers who rent.” in Featured, News Servicers Navigate the Post-Pandemic World 2 days ago Governmental Measures Target Expanded Access to Affordable Housing 2 days ago Sign up for DS News Daily About Author: Xhevrije West Xhevrije West is a talented writer and editor based in Dallas, Texas.

May’s total activities brought the total number of foreclosure prevention actions completed by the GSEs to 3,724,545 since the conservatorships began in September 2008.Despite the total activities completed since that origination date, the number has been on the decline for a few years along with foreclosure volume. For example, in 2012, Fannie Mae and Freddie Mac completed a total of 940,974 foreclosure prevention actions between them. That number fell to 789,627 the next year and down to 561,312 for 2014. For 2015, the pace fell to 428,881 and through the first six months of 2016, the number is 150,391.In May the number of home retention actions recorded by the GSEs, which included loan modifications, repayment plans, and forbearance plans, totaled 13,089, down from 13,960 in April. The number of home forfeiture actions, which included short sales and deeds-in-lieu of foreclosure, was also down over the month in August from 2,280 to 2,194, a decline of 4 percent.The number of permanent loan modifications also declined from April to May, from 10,784 to 9,838. The share of modifications with principal forbearance increased slightly from April to May up to 19 percent. According to the report, improved house prices and a declining Home Affordable Modification Program (HAMP)-eligible population resulted in a drop in the share of modifications with extend-term only down to 47 percent of all modifications.The number of foreclosure starts on GSE-backed residential mortgage loans increased 6 percent from 17,665 in April to 19,726 in May, and likewise, the number of third-party and foreclosure sales increased 3 percent over the month in May from 7,595 to 7,849.The combined serious delinquency rate (mortgage loans 90 days or more past due) on loans backed by the GSEs declined only slightly from April to May (1.31 percent down to 1.28 percent).

Birse builds on brand to cut hiring billOn 19 Feb 2002 in Personnel Today Previous Article Next Article Construction firm Birse has slashed its recruitment costs by three-quartersin the past year by improving its visibility in the jobs market. Birse introduced online recruitment and linked its website to the Careers inConstruction site to allow candidates to post CVs via the internet. The firm has also improved its employer brand by sponsoring constructionrecruitment fairs and sector-based advertising. Phil Harris, group HR director, said the company had cut its annualrecruitment agency bill from £800,000 to £200,000. He added that the firm also aims to reduce staff turnover by 3 per cent overthe next year to 15 per cent which would benchmark the firm at 5 per cent belowthe industry average of 20 per cent. “We did not have a employer brand or any visibility in the market,despite being involved in high-level projects.” An employee survey also showed poor management training was leading to staffleaving. So HR implemented a management leadership and business skills trainingprogramme. An appraisal system – the Performance Development Review – has also beenintroduced to improve the development and talent management of its 1,500 staff.last_img read more
