What Will Loan Modifications Look Like After HAMP?

first_img Governmental Measures Target Expanded Access to Affordable Housing 2 days ago  Print This Post The Week Ahead: Nearing the Forbearance Exit 2 days ago What Will Loan Modifications Look Like After HAMP? Subscribe During the Great Recession millions of homeowners went through the foreclosure process or the process of modifying their mortgages, either directly through banks or with the help of federal programs like the Home Affordable Modification Program (HAMP). Additionally, some homeowners saw the value of their homes plummet, leaving them underwater. But according to CoreLogic, since the crisis, foreclosures have slowed, and the total number of underwater homes has dropped by half from 11.6 million in 2011 to 4.3 million last year.A recent report from Credit.com, though notes this is not to say the housing market is out of the water, or that consumers who have trouble paying their mortgages don’t need help navigating the process. Solutions span forbearance and modifications to home-disposition options, and each of these is complicated.“The foreclosure prevention programs established by Treasury, HUD and FHFA in response to the financial crisis have transformed the way in which the mortgage servicing industry has interacted with and assisted struggling homeowners,” Mark McArdle, Deputy Assistant Secretary for the Office of Financial Stability. “While MHA and other crisis-era homeowner assistance programs are ending, their impact will endure. Servicers and investors will need to leverage new or existing loss mitigation programs, but they should build on the best practices and guiding principles that have led to positive outcomes for all parties.”The Consumer Financial Protection Bureau issued non-binding guidelines for mortgage services when dealing with at-risk homeowners. This comes right around the time that HAMP is coming to an end thus the Bureau refers to the guidelines as instructions for “Life After HAMP.”“We aim to help consumers avoid foreclosures, which upset their personal and financial lives,” CFPB Director Richard Cordray said in a press release. “The modification program was put in place to provide alternatives to foreclosure. Our principles will serve as helpful guardrails for servicers, investors and regulators to consider as we continue to protect consumers who are struggling to pay their mortgages.”The report from Credit.com states that the CFPB believes consumers are on more solid footing today than they were before the recession. It notes that these new rules make future mass defaults less likely. However, the report notes that the Bureau states, “there is ample opportunity for consumer harm if loss mitigation programs evolve without incorporating key learnings from the crisis.” The report says the CFPB identified four overriding principals that financial institutions should follow when dealing with at-risk homeowners including affordability, accessibility, sustainability, and transparency. Credit.com says the Bureau cites the main goal of the guidelines to preventing “avoidable foreclosures.” August 23, 2016 1,992 Views Previous: New Homes Sales Take an Upturn in July Next: High Home Sales Doesn’t Equal Higher Affordability Share Save Demand Propels Home Prices Upward 2 days ago Servicers Navigate the Post-Pandemic World 2 days ago Kendall Baer is a Baylor University graduate with a degree in news editorial journalism and a minor in marketing.

Coronavirus live updates: UK investigating reports of allergic reactions to Pfizer/BioNTech vaccine

first_imgOvidiu Dugulan/iStockBy MORGAN WINSOR, ERIN SCHUMAKER, IVAN PEREIRA and EMILY SHAPIRO, ABC News(NEW YORK) — A pandemic of the novel coronavirus has now infected more than 68 million people and killed over 1.5 million worldwide, according to real-time data compiled by the Center for Systems Science and Engineering at Johns Hopkins University.Here’s how the news is developing Wednesday. All times Eastern:Dec 09, 7:00 amUK regulators say people with a history of serious allergic reactions shouldn’t get Pfizer’s COVID-19 shotAuthorities in the U.K. were investigating reports of two allergic reactions to the coronavirus vaccine from Pfizer/BioNTech — a day after the country started its historic inoculation program.Dr. June Raine, head of the U.K. regulatory body Medicines and Healthcare products Regulatory Agency (MHRA), said the agency was looking at two reports of allergic reactions to the vaccine, which rolled out yesterday.“We know from the very extensive clinical trials that this wasn’t a feature but if we need to strengthen our advice… we get that advice to the field immediately,” said Raine.The vaccine is believed to be both safe and 95% effective, according to Pfizer/BioNTech. The U.S. Food and Drug Administration is set to hold a hearing for emergency use of the drug on Thursday.“There have been two cases of anaphylactoid reactions in individuals with a strong past history of allergic reactions both of whom carried an adrenaline auto injector,” the National Health Service (NHS) said in a statement on Wednesday. “These individuals developed symptoms of anaphylactoid reaction shortly after receiving the vaccine. Both recovered after appropriate treatment. We are seeking further information and will issue further advice following investigation.”Pfizer/BioNTech have not yet commented on these latest findings.Professor Stephen Powis, national Medical Director for the NHS, said: “As is common with new vaccines the MHRA have advised on a precautionary basis that people with a significant history of allergic reactions do not receive this vaccination after two people with a history of significant allergic reactions responded adversely yesterday. Both are recovering well.”Dec 09, 5:50 amRussia reports over 26,000 new cases in the past dayRussia registered 26,190 new coronavirus infections and 559 fatalities linked with the virus over the past 24 hours, officials said on Wednesday.In Moscow, 5,145 new infections and 75 fatalities have been confirmed over the same time, according to official information.The all-time high of 29,000 new cases was registered just last weekend but since then the number has been declining.Since the start of the pandemic, Russia has confirmed 2,541,199 coronavirus infections and 44,718 deaths, officials have said.Dec 09, 5:16 amNikki Haley says sister-in-law has died from COVIDFormer U.N. Ambassador Nikki Haley has announced on Twitter that her sister-in-law Rhonda Lee Nelson has died from COVID-19. “Today we said goodbye to Michael’s sister, Rhonda, who passed the day before Thanksgiving of Covid. She ministered to many inside and outside of the church. She loved God, her family & all who knew her. She will be missed,” Haley said in her tweet.No other details were provided regarding Nelson’s death but the seven-day rolling average of daily new cases in the state of Ohio has been on the rise in recent weeks.Copyright © 2020, ABC Audio.

Low earners most likely prey of office sex pests

first_img Comments are closed. Low earners most likely prey of office sex pestsOn 4 Sep 2001 in Personnel Today Previous Article Next Article Young women on low pay and who have been in their job for less than a yearare the most likely members of staff to fall victim to sexual harassment,according to an Equal Opportunities Commission report. Sexual Harassment at Work urges employers to adopt clear policies forharassment and to implement and communicate an effective complaints procedure. The EOC examined 54 tribunal decisions on sexual harassment from the pastthree years. It found that nearly all of the 34 employees who won their caseslost their job or resigned as a result of the harassment. In half of the tribunals, the sexual harassment lasted for over two months,and in a quarter it lasted for over a year before the victim complained. Nearlyhalf of the staff concerned had not made a formal work-based complaint becausethey were too embarrassed and felt there was no one to complain to. Commenting on the findings, Dianah Worman, equality adviser at the CIPD,said, “It is vital that companies have a policy that is well communicatedso victimised employees know what channels to go through and where to start. “Employers need to be on their toes about sexual harassment. Systemsmust be in place as intimidating behaviour affects performance.” In a third of cases, the guilty party was a company director or owner. Afurther third were the claimants’ line managers. John Monks, TUC general secretary, believes the report casts doubt on theGovernment’s attempts to reduce the number of tribunal claims. He said, “We are concerned that government proposals to introducecharges for tribunals will make it harder for victims of sexual harassment toget justice. As the report shows, many victims are low paid workers who wouldfind it hard to raise the cash needed to bring a case.” www.eoc.org.ukBy Paul Nelson Related posts:No related photos.last_img read more

Energy intakes on sledging expeditions

first_img1. Previous measurements of energy intake on sledging journeys in Antarctica have given a mean intake of 14.2 MJ (Acheson, 1974; Campbell, 1975), markedly lower than values reported earlier (see Edholm & Goldsmith, 1966). The technique used (individual weighed-diet survey) was more detailed and could be assumed to be more accurate than most of the earlier work where intakes had been largely inferred from the known energy content of food boxes. In the present study an individual weighed-diet survey was carried out on male subjects during a summer manhauling journey on the east coast of Greenland. 2. Mean daily energy intake of six subjects over 33 d travelling was 16.5 MJ. Mean weight loss was 2.3 kg, probably accounted for entirely by fat loss. Weight loss occurred despite the presence of excess food. Mean daily energy intake rose gradually but persistently over the 5 weeks of the journey despite a constant level of activity and to 20.1 MJ during the 4 d rest at the end of the journey. 3. Intakes were thus higher than those found in the earlier Antarctic studies (Acheson, 1974; Campbell, 1975) but not as high as intakes reported previously (see Edholm & Goldsmith, 1966). The fact that weight loss occurred despite the presence of excess food was ascribed to the monotonous nature of the diet. The fact that energy intake rose persistently over the 5-week study period may imply that a new state of balance of intake and expenditure waslast_img read more

Effect of cold acclimation on the antioxidant defense system of two larval lepidoptera (noctuidae)

first_imgActivities of superoxide dismutase (SOD), catalase (CAT), glutathione peroxidase (GSH-Px), glutathione reductase (GR), glutathione-S-transferase (GST), as well as total glutathione (tGSH) concentration were analyzed in the hemolymph and fat body of the European corn borer Ostrinia nubilalis Hubn. and the Mediterranean borer Sesamia cretica Led. (Lepidoptera, Noctuidae). Controls were maintained at 8°C while experimental groups of larvae were exposed to –3°C for ten days and then to –12°C for 23 days (only for Ostrinia). Cold exposure significantly increased fat body SOD, GR, and GST activities of Ostrinia larvae. Only GST activity and tGSH levels increased significantly in Ostrinia larval hemolymph on cold exposure. In Sesamia larvae after cold exposure, hemolymph CAT activity was significantly lower, while fat body tGSH increased. The antioxidant defense systems of these two species show differences, probably influenced by their respective cold-hardiness metabolism. According to its antioxidant profile, the response of Ostrinia suggests a significant physiological alteration in its metabolism during cold exposure, indicating a compensatory mechanism. By contrast this is not evident in Sesamia.Arch. Insect Biochem. Physiol. 36:1–10, 1997last_img read more

A decade after the Deepwater Horizon explosion, offshore drilling is still unsafe

first_imgSafety first is the big lesson from Deepwater HorizonAs I see it, the essential lesson from Deepwater Horizon is that industry and government should be putting their greatest energies into preventing operational accidents, blowouts and releases.Yet the Trump administration emphasises increasing production and reducing regulations. This undermines safety improvements made over the past 10 years.Furthermore, the price of crude oil – already low because of high fracked oil production in the U.S. – has declined drastically since the beginning of 2020.Saudi and Russian oil had already glutted the market when the coronavirus pandemic reduced oil consumption.The federal government’s March 2020 oil and gas lease sale for the Gulf of Mexico yielded the lowest response in four years – $93 million in high bids, compared to $159 million in the previous round.The spill had a devastating effect on the region, with marine life and the coastlines of Louisiana, Mississippi, Alabama, and Florida swimming in oil (Credit: Flickr/Office of Response and RestorationFollow)To prop up the industry and maintain production, the Trump administration is seeking to lower royalty rates and store excess production in the Strategic Petroleum Reserve.But as industry acts to cut its expenditures and downsize staff, will safety costs be a priority?National energy policy was beyond the charge of the 2010 commission, but 10 years later, it is impossible to consider the future of offshore oil and gas without factoring in the need to eliminate net greenhouse gas emission within 30 years to limit climate change.Why would the US consider expanding offshore exploration and drilling that might yield fossil fuels only 20 years from now?Even in the historically developed Gulf of Mexico, rather than just “drill, baby, drill,” I believe the US should be developing a realistic transition plan for phasing out offshore fossil fuel production.Such a strategy should encompass not only ensuring high standards for safety and industry responsibility for abandoned infrastructure during the drawdown, but also an economic evolution for the region, including opportunities for carbon sequestration and renewable energy production.We need to ensure that there will be a vibrant and productive Gulf long after we cease removing its oil. Ten years ago, on 20 April, 2010, the BP Deepwater Horizon oil rig exploded, killing 11 crew members and starting the largest ocean oil spill in history.Over the next three months, between four million and five million barrels of oil spewed into the Gulf of Mexico.I was a member of the oil spill commission appointed by President Obama to investigate the causes of the disaster. Later, I served as a courtroom witness for the government on the effects of the spill.While scientists now know more about these effects, risks of deepwater blowouts remain, and the energy industry and government responders still have only very limited ability to control where the oil goes once it’s released from the well.The spill commission found that multiple identifiable mistakes caused the blowout. Our report cast doubt over how safety was addressed across the offshore oil industry and the government’s ability to regulate it.As the oil spill commission’s report showed, drilling ever deeper into the Gulf involved risks for which neither industry nor government was adequately prepared.The industry had felt so sure that a blowout would not happen that it lacked the capacity to contain it. Neither BP nor the government could do much to control or clean up the spill. The Deepwater Horizon disaster killed 11 crew members and started the largest ocean oil spill in history (Credit: Wikimedia Commons/US Coast Guard) The Deepwater Horizon explosion marked one of the darkest days in the history of the oil industry. Donald Boesch, professor of Marine Science at the University of Maryland Center for Environmental Science, details the impact the disaster had, lessons learned and the safety meaures that have since been taken in an article for the Conversation, republished here.  The Deepwater Horizon disaster led to between four and five million barrels of oil spilling out into the Gulf of Mexico in 2010center_img Safety improvements are threatened following Deepwater Horizon explosionThe presidential commission recommended numerous reforms to reduce the risks and environmental damages from offshore oil and gas development.The industry developed systems to contain blowouts in deep water and has deployed them worldwide. Improvements in operational safety were made within companies and across the industry.The Department of the Interior acted quickly to reorganise its units. It created a Bureau of Safety and Environmental Enforcement to avoid conflicts of interests with its leasing, development and revenue collection responsibilities.After four years in development, the bureau issued new well control rules in 2016 governing drilling safety.But despite progress on a number of fronts, Congress has not enacted legislation to improve safety or even raise energy companies’ ridiculously low liability limits for oil spills – currently just $134m for offshore facilities like the Deepwater Horizon.The Trump administration has reversed or relaxed safety reforms. It has loosened the safe pressure margins allowed in a well, dispensed with independent inspections of blowout protectors and removed requirements for continuous onshore monitoring of offshore drilling.Ten years after the Deepwater Horizon disaster, rules adopted post-spill to make offshore operations safer are being relaxed.Some of these changes were ordered by political appointees over the recommendations of the safety bureau’s technical experts.While the bureau is charged with focusing singularly on safety and the environment, its director, Scott Angelle, has been a prominent proponent of the administration’s aggressive “energy dominance” strategy, ordering expanded oil production and elimination of costly regulations.Imagine the message this sends about priorities to people in government and industry who are responsible for ensuring safety. Where contamination lingers following the Deepwater Horizon explosionBefore the Deepwater Horizon disaster, the deep Gulf of Mexico ecosystem was egregiously understudied in all respects, while a multi-billion-dollar industry intruded into it.Now scientists know much more about what happens when large quantities of oil and gas are released in a seafloor blowout.Scientists learned much about the effects of the spill through monitoring the blowout, assessing damages to natural resources and investigating the fate and effects of escaping oil.More has been spent on these studies and more results published than for any previous oil spill.A substantial portion of oil released from the mile-deep well was entrained in a plume of droplets spreading out 3,000 feet below the Gulf’s surface. Footprints of contamination and effects extended far beyond the area where oil slicks were observed.Two NASA satellites recorded day-by-day images of the Gulf after the blowout, from April 20 through May 24, 2010.Nearly all of the oil released has since degraded. Populations of most affected organisms have recovered. But contamination lingers in sediments in the deep Gulf, and in some marshes and beaches where oil came ashore.Populations of long-lived animals the oil killed might not recover for decades. These include sea turtles, bottlenose dolphins, seabirds and deepwater corals.And yet, as scientists synthesise results from this 10-year research initiative, very little practical advice is emerging about what can be done to respond more effectively to future blowouts from ever-deeper drilling in the Gulf.Surely, we can more rapidly contain blowouts. The effectiveness of injecting chemical dispersants into the plume gushing from the well remains in debate.How much oil do dispersants keep from reaching the surface, where it threatens those working to stanch the blowout, as well as birds, sea turtles and coastal ecosystems? But the research has not revealed more effective approaches in controlling released oil.last_img read more

Broken Standpipe Forces Evacuation of Gardens Plaza

first_imgPolice and fire and emergency personnel evacuated the Gardens Plaza early Tuesday morning, displacing about 30 year round residents. A frozen standpipe burst in the early morning hours Tuesday, inundating an Ocean City high rise condominium with thousands of gallons of water and forcing its evacuation.Ocean City Police and Fire Department responded to the alarm at the Garden’s Plaza, 921 Park Place, at approximately 1:45 a.m.The 15-story building of more than 180 units was immediately evacuated. About 30 year-round residents were asked to leave because power in the building needed to shut off, along with the building’s water system.Fire and rescue personnel assisted with the evacuation of several elderly residents. Because the elevators were shut off, some residents had to be carried in stair chairs from their units.The burst pipe, originating on the 15th floor’s north stairwell, caused water to spray out and down the stairs, inundating the lobby of the building and reportedly damaging more than a dozen units.A look from down 3rd Street during the response. OCFD did an excellent job handling the evacuation.“I received some pretty extensive damage. My carpeting is completely soaked,” resident Nick Mealo said.Most residents gathered a few belongings in duffel bags and drove or were taken by police or ambulance to the Port-o-Call Hotel for emergency overnight housing. They had all checked in by 3:30 a.m.It was unclear when the residents would be permitted to return to their homes, but police estimated it would be at least 24 hours.Gardens Plaza on 3rd Street, pictured before the recent beach replenishment.last_img read more
