first_imgGraduate training is seen as a crown jewel of U.S. higher education. University of Southern Mississippi/Van Arnold They probably should have known better, admits Harold Varmus, one of the authors of a controversial proposal this spring to correct the “systemic flaws” affecting U.S. biomedical research. But he and two of the other co-authors acknowledged Friday that one aspect of their call to arms was flawed, namely, that the community was close to agreeing on how to deal with the complex problems that affect training and funding. “We were naive,” said Varmus, director of the National Cancer Institute, after a presentation to the President’s Council of Advisors on Science and Technology (PCAST). “We were hoping to pick off some low-hanging fruit.”But that fruit isn’t ripe yet, he and Princeton University’s President Emerita Shirley Tilghman and Harvard Medical School’s Marc Kirschner told PCAST. The council had invited the four authors (Bruce Alberts, the former editor of Science, was unable to attend) because of the furor their article had raised within the biomedical community, explained PCAST Co-Chair Eric Lander.Sign up for our daily newsletterGet more great content like this delivered right to you!Country *AfghanistanAland IslandsAlbaniaAlgeriaAndorraAngolaAnguillaAntarcticaAntigua and BarbudaArgentinaArmeniaArubaAustraliaAustriaAzerbaijanBahamasBahrainBangladeshBarbadosBelarusBelgiumBelizeBeninBermudaBhutanBolivia, Plurinational State ofBonaire, Sint Eustatius and SabaBosnia and HerzegovinaBotswanaBouvet IslandBrazilBritish Indian Ocean TerritoryBrunei DarussalamBulgariaBurkina FasoBurundiCambodiaCameroonCanadaCape VerdeCayman IslandsCentral African RepublicChadChileChinaChristmas IslandCocos (Keeling) IslandsColombiaComorosCongoCongo, The Democratic Republic of theCook IslandsCosta RicaCote D’IvoireCroatiaCubaCuraçaoCyprusCzech RepublicDenmarkDjiboutiDominicaDominican RepublicEcuadorEgyptEl SalvadorEquatorial GuineaEritreaEstoniaEthiopiaFalkland Islands (Malvinas)Faroe IslandsFijiFinlandFranceFrench GuianaFrench PolynesiaFrench Southern TerritoriesGabonGambiaGeorgiaGermanyGhanaGibraltarGreeceGreenlandGrenadaGuadeloupeGuatemalaGuernseyGuineaGuinea-BissauGuyanaHaitiHeard Island and Mcdonald IslandsHoly See (Vatican City State)HondurasHong KongHungaryIcelandIndiaIndonesiaIran, Islamic Republic ofIraqIrelandIsle of ManIsraelItalyJamaicaJapanJerseyJordanKazakhstanKenyaKiribatiKorea, Democratic People’s Republic ofKorea, Republic ofKuwaitKyrgyzstanLao People’s Democratic RepublicLatviaLebanonLesothoLiberiaLibyan Arab JamahiriyaLiechtensteinLithuaniaLuxembourgMacaoMacedonia, The Former Yugoslav Republic ofMadagascarMalawiMalaysiaMaldivesMaliMaltaMartiniqueMauritaniaMauritiusMayotteMexicoMoldova, Republic ofMonacoMongoliaMontenegroMontserratMoroccoMozambiqueMyanmarNamibiaNauruNepalNetherlandsNew CaledoniaNew ZealandNicaraguaNigerNigeriaNiueNorfolk IslandNorwayOmanPakistanPalestinianPanamaPapua New GuineaParaguayPeruPhilippinesPitcairnPolandPortugalQatarReunionRomaniaRussian FederationRWANDASaint Barthélemy Saint Helena, Ascension and Tristan da CunhaSaint Kitts and NevisSaint LuciaSaint Martin (French part)Saint Pierre and MiquelonSaint Vincent and the GrenadinesSamoaSan MarinoSao Tome and PrincipeSaudi ArabiaSenegalSerbiaSeychellesSierra LeoneSingaporeSint Maarten (Dutch part)SlovakiaSloveniaSolomon IslandsSomaliaSouth AfricaSouth Georgia and the South Sandwich IslandsSouth SudanSpainSri LankaSudanSurinameSvalbard and Jan MayenSwazilandSwedenSwitzerlandSyrian Arab RepublicTaiwanTajikistanTanzania, United Republic ofThailandTimor-LesteTogoTokelauTongaTrinidad and TobagoTunisiaTurkeyTurkmenistanTurks and Caicos IslandsTuvaluUgandaUkraineUnited Arab EmiratesUnited KingdomUnited StatesUruguayUzbekistanVanuatuVenezuela, Bolivarian Republic ofVietnamVirgin Islands, BritishWallis and FutunaWestern SaharaYemenZambiaZimbabweI also wish to receive emails from AAAS/Science and Science advertisers, including information on products, services and special offers which may include but are not limited to news, careers information & upcoming events.Required fields are included by an asterisk(*)Shortly after the article appeared in the Proceedings of the National Academy of Sciences in April, a members-only session held on the last morning of the academy’s annual meeting generated a “very heated” discussion, Varmus said. A follow-up meeting of community leaders sponsored by the Howard Hughes Medical Institute convinced the authors that they were far from achieving the consensus they wanted before holding a national gathering to come up with a list of solutions.“So we’ve decided to take more time,” Varmus explained. He and others said the next step would be to assemble a larger and more representative group—in particular with early-career scientists—to continue discussing the issues, which cover everything from graduate training and university oversight of research to federal grants management and partnerships with industry.The system has worked well for a long time, Tilghman explained, and nobody wants to do something that might have unintended negative consequences. “We are very sensitive to the principle of ‘First, do no harm.’ ”Put succinctly, Tilghman described the problem as “too many people chasing too little money.” And after the trio presented their views on what factors are putting stress on the system and what might be done to alleviate it, Lander, a biologist at the Massachusetts Institute of Technology in Cambridge, got to the heart of the matter.“You’ve suggested a lot of reasons for the current situation,” he said. But in the absence of hard evidence to back up their assertions, he noted, it’s very difficult to know which remedies might solve the problem and which might make it worse.“That’s exactly the question that I would have asked us,” Tilghman confessed. “There’s a consensus that the current system is at risk for not producing the best science. But there’s little consensus on what to do to make it better.”One reason, Lander hinted, may be the large number of unproven—and possibly untestable—hypotheses about the crisis that have become accepted wisdom. The article asserted, for example, that the current “hypercompetitive system” is driving away the best students and “making it difficult for seasoned investigators to produce their best work.” The article also stated that low success rates have spawned “conservative, short-term thinking” throughout the community, a problem compounded, the authors say, by the fact that “time for reflection is a disappearing luxury.”Another hugely controversial issue is whether some type of “birth control” is needed to ease the intense competition for research funding and academic positions. The phrase usually applies to limiting the number of graduate students. But biologist Jo Handelsman, associate director for science at the White House Office of Science and Technology Policy and a participant at the Hughes meeting, said that emphasis may be inappropriate.“I think that graduate education is the pinnacle of what we do in education in the United States,” said Handelsman, on leave from Yale University. “And I don’t think there’s anything wrong with unleashing a large group of trained Ph.D.s. The question is what they do after graduation.”Her suggestion: Make sure that universities “train students just as rigorously” for careers outside academia as is now done to prepare them for academic careers. “The answer is not limiting the number of graduate students, but perhaps limiting the number of PIs,” Handelsman remarked after the meeting.Although nothing was resolved during the 75-minute discussion, one of Tilghman’s comments midway through it captured the tenor. “We don’t know what to do, and we’re open to your suggestions,” she said. “But I do know one thing: If we go home and do nothing, the problem will just get worse.”last_img read more

first_imgBoeing, one of the global leaders in aerospace technology, is set to open an electronics manufacturing and avionics assembly facility in Bengaluru.The aircraft maker is investing Rs 1,152 crore at the tech hub, which will majorly focus on data analytics, internet-of-things, avionics, design, testing, and research, IANS reported. The facility will be the company’s second largest tech hub after its center in Seattle in Washington, the report added.“We have allotted 36 acres of land for Boeing India to set up the facility in the state-run Aerospace Park at Devanahalli near the airport in north Bengaluru,” a senior official was quoted as saying by the news agency.According to the report, a meeting between Karnataka Chief Minister HD Kumaraswamy and Boeing India President Pratyush Kumar took place to discuss the key points of the project.To utilize the maximum capacity of the project, the company will also create 2,600 direct jobs when set up and commissioned, the official told the news agency.The project also acquired the due approval early this month “for land allotment and other statutory clearances,” the official added.The project, which is yet to begin, is expected to complete its first phase during the first half of 2019, according to the report.“The additional facility at our India Engineering and Technology Centre here will enable us to develop skills of our aerospace engineers and frontline factory workers,” the company had stated last year in September, as per an earlier report of IANS. That was when Boeing announced its plans to expand its engineering operations in Bengaluru.“We are committed to build an innovative aerospace ecosystem in India for our global growth in productivity, efficiency, cost advantage and quality,” Boeing India President Pratyush Kumar was quoted as saying at that time.Karnataka Udyog Mitra Managing Director BK Shivakumar had told the news agency earlier that Boeing will also make aircraft components and subsystems at the new center for civil and military versions.Headquartered in Delhi, Boeing’s India operations include an office and a Boeing Research & Technology Center in Bengaluru, field service offices in Mumbai, Hindan, Rajali and New Delhi. Boeing subsidiary, Jeppesen—a provider of flight navigation solutions—is established in Hyderabad. Another subsidiary, Continental Data Graphics (CDG) in Chennai, is also expanding its footprint in the country. Related ItemsAviationBengaluruboeinglast_img read more

first_imgCzech Republic’s Karolina Pliskova lost 6-3, 7-6(1) to Kiki Bertens in the pre-quarters on Monday. The result led to the demolition of Wimbledon’s top 10 women’s seeds. However, Serena Williams continued with her dominant performance with another straight sets victory in her fourth round match.Pliskova, seeded seven, was the highest-ranked player to reach the fourth round after an extraordinary first week of upsets but her hopes of further progress evaporated on a stiflingly hot Court Two.Bertens, the first Dutchwoman to reach the last 16 since Michaella Krajicek, sister of former men’s champion Richard, did so in 2007, followed up her win over Venus Williams in the third round with a display of power and poise.The tall Czech answered an early break with one of her own but 20th seed Bertens secured a second break with a superb touch volley to move 5-3 ahead and then held with ease.All out.1 Halep2 Wozniacki3 Muguruza4 Stephens5 Svitolina6 Garcia7 Pliskova8 Kvitova9 V.

At 6-1 Bertens thought she had over-cooked a forehand swing volley but after Pliskova challenged the call the Hawkeye screen showed it had clipped the baseline.She celebrated and her watching father puffed out his cheeks in relief. Bertens will play either 13th seed Julia Goerges or Croatia’s Donna Vekic for a place in the semi-finals.Meanwhile, twelfth seed Jelena Ostapenko came back from 5-2 down to crush Aliaksandra Sasnovich 7-6(4), 6-0 and reach the quarter-finals.The 21-year-old Latvian former French Open champion looked in trouble with her Belarusian opponent racing into a 5-2 lead after delivering a superb lob.However, Ostapenko then seemed stung into action by a warning for coaching and reeled off four games to turn the tables, winning the set in 56 minutes.Back-to-back quarter-finals @JelenaOstapenk8 books her last eight spot with a 7-6(4), 6-0 victory against Aliaksandra Sasnovich #Wimbledon pic.twitter.com/ihYyfTgsLPWimbledon (@Wimbledon) July 9, 2018Sasnovich, who upset eighth seed Petra Kvitova in the opening round, won one more game to send the set into a tiebreak which she lost 7-4 on a double fault.Ostapenko, who has yet to drop a set in the tournament, clinched the set in 56 minutes then took half that time to win the second as Sasnovich’s game deserted her.Sasnovich, 24, saved four break points in the fourth game of the second set, her last stand, but could not hold.Ostapenko proved too strong in the end and will be favoured in her quarter-final to beat Dominika Cibulkova, one of a record nine unseeded players to reach the fourth round since the number of seeds was increased to 32 in 2001.Slovakian Cibulkova ended Su-Wei Hsieh’s run after the Taiwanese had upset top seed Simona Halep. Only one of the top 10 women reached the fourth round for the first time in the Open era.SERENA SAILS THROUGHSeven-time champion Serena Williams prevailed in a Centre Court mothers’ meeting on Monday, roaring past Russian qualifier Evgeniya Rodina into the Wimbledon quarter-finals. Serena Williams celebrates winning her fourth round match against Russia’s Evgeniya Rodina (Reuters Photo)The 36-year-old American was untroubled in a 6-2 6-2 victory — her 90th singles match win at the All England Club.Rodina, who like Williams combines a tennis career with motherhood, looked overawed at first as she went 3-0 down.She steadied herself, though, and even had a break point when Williams served at 4-2, but her chances were few and far between as her opponent continued to charge through a draw blown wide open by an exodus of seeds.Rodina left the court for a few minutes at the end of the first set but when she returned Williams continued her domination with an early break in the second.With her easy power Williams looked serene as she cruised to victory to set up a clash with Italy’s unseeded Camila Giorgi who beat Ekaterina Makarova.advertisement”I’m a perfectionist, I always find something,” the 36-year-old responded when asked about her near-flawless display.”Today was tougher than the scoreline suggested.”Williams, who missed last year’s Wimbledon because of pregnancy, has not lost here since 2014 and has now won 18 consecutive matches on the London lawns.She is yet to drop a set this year.(With Reuters inputs)last_img read more

first_imgFrom leadership crisis to infighting in team to poor results to administrative mess, Sri Lanka cricket has endured all in run up to the World Cup and the former champions require no less than a miracle to emerge a worthy challenger this time.Always a dark horse in this showpiece event, Sri Lanka have an impressive World Cup record with one title, two runner-up finish and one semifinal appearance but this time they will start as the weakest opponent.With selectors axing some big names including Dinesh Chandimal and Niroshan Dickwella, it will be Dimuth Karunaratne, who last played an ODI in the 2015 World Cup, will lead the side.Chandimal and Dickwella both led the side in different formats till early this year before handing the baton to Lasith Malinga under whom they lost 12 games on the trot.That Sri Lanka have seen nine captains in two years across the formats, speaks volumes about the leadership crisis that has struck them.There are also cracks within the team with Angelo Mathews having differences with head coach Chandika Hathurusingha.Left with little choice, the Ashantha De Mel-led selection committee was forced to bring in Karunaratne, who had led them to a historic 2-0 Tests win in South Africa in February this year, for skipper’s role.For coach Hathurusingha however Chandimal was the preferred choice for captaincy. He had never kept Karunaratne in ODI scheme of things because of his inability to keep pace with the pace of the ODI format.So it remains to be seen how the duo would work in tandem.advertisementAdd the recent corruption charges against legendary Sanath Jayasuriya among others, and the Sri Lankan cricket is in desperate times as they never looked so unsettled and in disarray.It has reflected in their poor performances as they have lost 55 of the 84 ODIs they played since 2015 World Cup and have not won a single bilateral series since May 2016, while their last ODI win had come way back in October last year.Their worst result came in 2017 when they lost to minnows Zimbabwe 2-3 in a five-match ODI series. They have lost all eight ODIs they have played this year.Going by their woeful form in the recent past, it would not come as a surprise if teams like Afghanistan and Bangladesh stun the island nation in the 10-team World Cup where it’s a round-robin league to determine the semifinalists.Odds heavily stacked against them, the Sri Lankan team will look for inspiration from the duo of Mathews and Malinga.Removed from captaincy, Malinga would look to prove a point being the best bowler of the country as he will be their key man in the bowling.By delivering a clinical last over to win the IPL for Mumbai Indians recently, the 35-year-old showed why he still ranks among the best in business as far as death bowling is concerned.Two of his three hat-tricks have come in the World Cup and Malinga would once again look to make an impact if they are to make the semifinals.Former captain Mathews will hope that he remains injury-free and play the role of a finisher besides providing breakthroughs with his medium pace bowling.Sri Lanka will expect Thisara Perera to shine with his all-round ability. He is their highest run-getter in ODIs and only second to Malinga in terms of wickets,Apart from these players, Sri Lanka lacks experience. Lahiru Thirimanne, Milinda Siriwardana, Jeevan Mendis and Jeffrey Vandersay have not played ODI for long.Behind the stumps too Sri Lanka appear depleted with their Kusal Perera and Kusal Mendis earmarked for duty when both players don’t even keep wickets at the domestic level.Sri Lanka has made the knockouts every time since 2003 but looking at the present scenario it will be a miracle of sorts if they make the last-four stage this time.The Karunaratne-led side will begin their campaign against New Zealand on June 1.Sri Lanka Squad: Dimuth Karunaratne (c), Angelo Mathews, Lasith Malinga, Thisara Perera, Kusal Perera, Dhananjaya de Silva, Kusal Mendis, Isuru Udana, Milinda Siriwardana, Avishka Fernando, Jeevan Mendis, Lahiru Thirimanne, Jeffrey Vandersay, Nuwan Pradeep and Suranga Lakmal.Also Read | Michael Slater removed from flight for ‘disruptive’ behaviorAlso Read | Adam Zampa banking on dual spin threat with Nathan Lyon at 2019 World CupAlso Seelast_img read more

The rugby is usually fast and furious: we came up short against them in the contact area last year at Murrayfield and the key is to be controlled in your own structure.”For once, Wales are going into the championship without having to apologise for the performances of their sides in the European Champions Cup. The Scarlets and Ospreys went into the final round of group matches knowing victory would guarantee them a place in the quarter-finals, with the former playing the free-flowing, offloading game Wales aspire to. “We have encouraged that approach since coming back from New Zealand in 2016,” says Howley. “That was a watershed tour for us, and when we got back we got all the regional coaches together and asked them to work on their front five players passing the ball. You can now see the ambition and intent and it is a long time since we had two Welsh regions in the mix in the final weekend of the European Cup.“The Scarlets are fantastic to watch. Players like Aaron Shingler and James Davies [flankers who are in the Wales squad] have been outstanding. We have real strength in depth in the back row but what the Scarlets have also shown in Europe is an ability to play the game in several ways. They have been solid in defence and strong in the set pieces. That is what we will be looking for in the Six Nations.”A conundrum for Wales is the full-back Leigh Halfpenny, one of the best goal-kickers and defenders in the world who, after joining Toulon, lost the attacking spark he had shown in the final Lions Test in Australia in 2013. As an attacking force he is behind rivals Liam Williams, Hallam Amos and Rhys Patchell, but the decision to leave him out will not be taken easily with the centre Jonathan Davies missing and the wing George North feeling his way back after injury. Scotland rugby union team Share on Messenger Read more Since you’re here… Robert Howley will put a close friendship on hold in the first week of the Six Nations as Wales, who finished fifth last season after losing three matches for only the second time in 10 years, prepare for Scotland in Cardiff.Howley got to know the Scotland head coach, Gregor Townsend, who will be taking charge of his first match in the championship after succeeding Vern Cotter last summer, during the 1997 Lions tour to South Africa. They should have been half-back partners in the Test series but Howley was injured in Durban a week before the opener and was ruled out of the tour.“Gregor is a good friend who came to my wedding,” says the Wales attack coach who was part of the Lions management team in New Zealand last summer, his third successive tour as a coach after 2009 and 2013. “He has done a great job since taking charge of Scotland and they enjoyed some outstanding victories in the autumn. They will come to Cardiff in buoyant mood, even though they have a few injuries in the front row. Sign up to the Breakdown for the latest rugby union news Share on Twitter Share on LinkedIn Reuse this content Share via Email “Without being disrespectful to where he came from [last summer], it is a different game here,” says Howley. “Leigh is being encouraged to play from the back and I am not sure that was the message in France. As we saw with Jonathan [when he was at Clermont Auvergne] as well as Leigh, they were burying themselves in rucks rather than being on their feet and playing. They are now with a side that plays rugby and they are not automated.”Wales picked the Worcester wing Josh Adams in the squad after Howley watched him twice this month. “He beats defenders and he can tackle,” says the coach. “We want to see how he reacts in our environment but having looked at him, I have no doubt he has the ability to play international rugby.“The Six Nations is all about winning and our squad reflects that.

Guyana Civil Aviation Authority (GCAA) Director General, Egbert Field told reporters earlier today (Thursday) that investigations have commenced into the July 25 2017 crash of a Roraima Airways aircraft that killed Captain Collin Martin and Tuesday morning’s crash of a Wings Aviation plane at the Eteringbang Airstrip. (GCAA) Director General, Egbert FieldHe noted that these probes are currently being done by the Accident Investigations Unit. “We have commenced those investigations are they are at a preliminary stage, especially the accident earlier this week, it’s in a preliminary stage at this time. A brief on those- we have secured the engines for the first accident that should be shipped out to the manufacturers” he said.According to the Director General, the investigators will have to look at a number of areas before they can come to any conclusion regarding the accidents.“We do not have any findings as yet but we are hoping that we can find to a definite position as to what caused the accidents. As I said, the investigations are ongoing and we have to look at a number of areas. We have to look at the equipment, we have to look at weather conditions, we also have to look at the human factors involved- not discounting anyone of them and as we drill down, we will be able to ascertain what the cause of each accident was,” Field noted.Furthermore, he posited that there is no concern over the age of the aircrafts operating domestically since they would have been manufactured with lengthy lifespan.“What the Authority concerns itself about is the quality of maintenance for the aircraft and that is the reason why we have inspectors who go out and undertake surveillance exercises, looking at the maintenance organizations, also ensuring that the individuals or personnel within the organizations are properly qualified.”The GCAA Director General added that the aviation sector has to be safe and secure in order for Guyana to experience the growth it has to achieve and to experience all that lies ahead with the various industries expanding.

Guccione claims no desire to disrespect what he calls the “Big Travel Publications,” although his tendency to name-check Condé Nast Traveler and Time Inc.’s Travel + Leisure in interviews provides some insight into his targeted competition in the travel space.“Anytime you have a stagnant medium, there’s a real opportunity for someone to come in and disrupt that with a wider spectrum of journalism and reporting, and it’s definitely an undefended market,” Guccione told The Daily Beast on Monday. “There’s no sentry at the gate.”Reps for both Condé Nast and Time Inc. felt it was better not to comment.last_img read more

Aurat could refer to parts other than genitals such as face, hair or even voice.While many people chimed with a range of opinions, the pizza chain also shared its very transphobic views.The offensive tweet said trans women could only be cleansed with ‘zam zam’ waters. The ZamZam Well, is a never ending water well in the holy site of Mecca.Malaysia is a mainly Muslim country, where it is illegal to be trans.Pizza Hut apologizesTwitter users quickly condemned the offensive tweet, which Pizza Hut deleted soon after.The company blamed an external agency it had hired to run its social media platforms.‘We sincerely apologise for our earlier (now deleted) tweet with inappropriate comments regarding sexuality and religion. We want to clarify: Pizza Hut does not condone any such views and as policy, do not involve ourselves in matters of religion or sexuality,’ it wrote on Twitter.last_img read more

first_img July 16, 2014 472 Views in Daily Dose, Data, Headlines, News The Federal Reserve reported continued growth in economic activity through the United States over the past month, reinforcing recent reports that the economy is moving in a more positive direction after a dismal first quarter.The central bank’s latest Beige Book report, released Wednesday, shows that economic activity expanded in nearly all 12 Fed districts, with New York, Chicago, Minneapolis, Dallas, and San Francisco all reporting moderate growth. The remaining districts characterized their own expansion as modest, except for Boston and Richmond, which both noted a slightly slower pace of growth.Moving forward, most districts are optimistic in their outlook, the Fed said.Reports on real estate activity were mixed across the country, though low inventory and rising home prices were common themes in most districts.Boston, New York, Atlanta, Kansas City, and Dallas all reported that residential home sales remain constrained by dwindling inventory levels, though home sales in Atlanta and Kansas City accelerated at a slight to modest pace.Home sales also rose in Philadelphia, Cleveland, and Richmond.Sales softened in Boston, New York, Chicago, and St. Louis, with Chicago pinning some of the decline on rising home prices. Chicago posted double-digit annual price gains in the latest S&P/Case-Shiller report but remains among the cities with the lowest price indices as of April.In a positive turn for supply, residential construction generally increased nationwide, with only St. Louis and Minneapolis reporting declines in activity.Building challenges remain, however. Cleveland and San Francisco each reported that a shortage of vacant lots has held back further both in homebuilding, and Cleveland, Richmond, Atlanta, Chicago, Kansas City, and Dallas all reported a shortage of skilled construction and craft workers.Districts were split on home lending activity. New York, Philadelphia, St. Louis, and Dallas all reported growth, while Richmond, Atlanta, and Kansas City posted slight declines in demand.Credit quality was stable or improved in most areas, with Dallas and New York reporting moderate and strong improvement, respectively. Out of the 12 districts, only San Francisco posted a decline in credit quality.At the same time, lenders in some districts are resorting to riskier terms to remain competitive, with contacts in Chicago and Philadelphia expressing growing concern.

first_imgWill Affordability Issues Bring Housing Growth to a Standstill? in Daily Dose, Data, Headlines, Market Studies, News March 31, 2016 498 Views Sharecenter_img Affordability Home Prices Housing Market 2016-03-31 Staff Writer Home prices are climbing higher, interest rate hikes are imminent, and supply continues to fall short of demand. Are these factors enough to  derail expansion in the housing market?Even if the above conditions persist in the housing market, a rise in earnings growth is projected to keep mortgage payments as a share of income below their long-run average over the next three years.A report from independent economic research company, Capital Economics, says affordability will not halt market recovery.”While tight mortgage lending standards will prevent a surge of housing demand, the risk of worsening affordability bringing the housing market recovery to a halt looks low,”said Matthew Pointon, Property Economist for Capital Economics.Since the Great Recession, home prices have been fighting their way back to peak levels reached prior to the crisis and some markets’ home prices have more than recovered.In the midst of tight supply, heightened competition for buyers, and unpredictable financial markets, U.S. home prices continued to rise in the fourth quarter.The Federal Housing Finance Agency’s (FHFA)House Price Index (HPI) shows that home prices rose 5.8 percent year-over-year in the fourth quarter of 2015. Prices increased 1.4 percent from the third quarter of 2015, marking the 18 consecutive quarterly price increase in the purchase-only, seasonally adjusted index. Home prices were up 0.4 percent month-over-month for December.“Instability in financial markets did not seem to put much of a drag on home prices in the fourth quarter,” said Andrew Leventis, FHFA Supervisory Economist. The 1.4 percent rise in home prices “was in line with the extremely steady—but historically elevated—appreciation rates we have been observing for several years now.”Freddie Mac reported this week that mortgage interest rates remained low at 3.71 percent, but cautioned that the Fed may take action soon and raise rates.Sean Becketti, Chief Economist, Freddie Mac, said, “Dovish comments by Federal Reserve Chair Janet Yellen on Tuesday triggered a rally in Treasury markets and drove the 10-year yield down 13 basis points from last week’s high. Yellen’s comments came too late to affect this week’s mortgage rate survey, and the 30-year mortgage rate remained unchanged at 3.71 percent. However, if the Fed’s cautious tone persists, mortgage rates may register the impact in subsequent weeks.”According to Pointon, “Affordability, in terms of mortgage payments as a share of income, does not strike us as a reason to expect a housing slowdown. That said, there are other reasons why activity will not take-off and is likely to slow in 2018.”He continued, “For one, a lack of inventory will mean existing home sales will only rise slowly over the next three years. And while those able to get a mortgage will find their mortgage payments are manageable, many households will struggle to qualify. Lending standards are being eased, but only gradually, locking many with poorer credit scores out of the market. Finally, an economic slowdown in 2018 will hit job creation and confidence. So while the housing market recovery will be steady and will eventually slow, it will be hard to pin the blame on unaffordable mortgage payments.”last_img read more

first_imgEnd of first quarterPalmer hits Michael Floyd for a first down and the drive will continue as we hit the second quarter. Palmer is getting beat up pretty good this game — not necessarily the line’s fault, mind you, as the Rams are often times sending more rushers than there are blockers. So far he seems no worse for ware and that’s a good thing.When play resumes the Cards will have a first and 10 at the St. Louis 37. 8:56 left in second quarterCards force another three-and-out, their third straight. Peterson returns the punt nine yards to the Arizona 17. The defense has done its job so far while the offense has been just OK. 11:57 left in fourth quarter 4:08 left in first quarterA penalty on the kickoff return (which didn’t go far anyway, so maybe the Rams should have cheated better) pushes the ball back to the St. Louis eight, which is where the drive will start. It’s a big early series for Arizona’s defense, which is rested now and could wrestle away some momentum with a stop (or better yet, a turnover).4:13 left in first quarterCardinals go backwards on consecutive Chris Johnson runs, and then David Johnson drops what should have been a touchdown on third down. Not a great finish to what was otherwise a pretty good drive. 8:36 left in third quarterCardinals seemed to have something good going after a nice John Brown play was followed by a great deep ball to Larry Fitzgerald, but the ball was pried loose and the fumble was recovered by the Rams. It was a great hit, sure, but the Cardinals are not helping themselves in this one. Assuming the fumble stands, and I’m sure it will, the Rams will take over at their own 42. Butler’s punt is a not-so-good-looking 44-yard boot, which is downed at the St. Louis 23.13:24 left in first quarterThe kickoff goes out of the end zone for a touchback. Cards will start at their own 20 trailing for the first time this season.13:24 left in first quarterWell, that’s what happens when you give a team great field position. A short screen pass followed by a great tackle in the backfield by Deone Bucannon set up a 3rd and 5, but Nick Foles hits Tavon Austin for a 12-yard score. Jerraud Powers was beat on the play.Not the start Arizona wanted, that’s for sure. With the PAT the score is Rams 7, Cardinals 0. 4:32 left in fourth quarterThe kickoff is taken out of the end zone but only returned to the 14. The stadium is getting loud as the defense has a chance to keep momentum on AZ’s side while getting the offense the ball back for a chance to win the game. 4:38 left in fourth quarterPalmer hits a wide open Fitzgerald on fourth down, and the Cards get to the red zone. Palmer sacked on first down and fumbles, but Lyle Sendlein jumps on it. Next play Palmer hits David Johnson for a 23-yard TD, and the Cards are still in it.The PAT is good and the score is Rams 24, Cardinals 22. 6:43 left in fourth quarterA 22-yard pass to Floyd and another one to David Johnson got the Cards moving, but a couple of incompletions — one of which was a near interception broken up by John Brown — has Arizona facing a 3rd and 10 at the St. Louis 39. :35 left in second quarterCards force a three-and-out with help of Calais Campbell, who read a third-down screen play and did not make the tackle but forced the RB back inside. End of third quarterTwice the Cardinals appeared to get that fumble, and twice they do not. The first time Gurley coughed up the ball but the Rams somehow recovered. The second time, Cunningham put the ball on the ground and it was recovered by Frostee Rucker. The refs ruled forward progress had stopped and thus no fumble, so Bruce Arians’ challenge flag is moot. Fans aren’t pleased, and nor should they be. Tough break for the Cardinals, whose defense came up REAL big on that series. Top Stories Cards move the ball well again, but stall in the red zone again. Gresham can’t hang on and unfortunately it looked like John Brown was open in the corner of the end zone, but Palmer never saw him. Catanzaro makes good on a 29-yard field goal, but the Cardinals still trail by a score of 17-15. 3:16 left in second quarterTyrann Mathieu makes a nice play to knock the ball out of Jared Cook’s hands. Didn’t look like he knew where the ball was, just put his arms up and made the play. Zuerlein’s field goal is good, and the Rams extend their lead to 10-6. Prior to kickoffThe Cardinals won the toss and chose to receive. Bruce Arians has said he likes getting the ball first because he trusts Carson Palmer to if not lead a scoring drive, lead a drive that at least picks up a few first downs and flips the field. 5:26 left in third quarterChris Johnson picks up 19 yards on a run up the middle and now there’s a break in the action due to an injured Ram. It’s LB Alec Ogletree, who is one of their more important players. 10:45 left in second quarterCards move the ball a little more with some short passes and runs, but the drive stalls and leads to a 27-yard Catanzaro field goal. Points are points, yes, but the Cards had been so good about scoring in the red zone and so far today have just a pair of field goals to show for their two trips. 2:00 left in fourth quarterA nice pass to John Brown and an eight yard run by David Johnson has the Cardinals facing a 2nd and 2 at the St. Louis 43. Think this place is nervous? Tense? Maybe. Probably. Definitely. 1:44 left in fourth quarterCards had a 3rd and 2, but threw down the field to Jaron Brown (incomplete) and then Palmer missed an open David Johnson on fourth down. Rams take over at their own 44. Former Cardinals kicker Phil Dawson retires 9:56 left in fourth quarterWoops. Gurley picks up 52 yards on a run, with only Tyrann Mathieu saving a score. The Rams get to the Arizona 16, but are pushed back to the 21 with a delay of game. Imperative Arizona holds the Rams to a FG attempt. 10:34 left in third quarterRams move the ball a bit with some screens, but the Cards are able to force a punt before any real threat was posed. The punt is fair caught by Peterson at the Arizona eight, which is where the offense will start.A lot of good things happened for Palmer and Co. in the first half, though an interception and failure to reach the end zone really marred what was otherwise a solid performance. Can they continue to move the ball in the second half? Hekker gets off a 57-yard punt, which Peterson only returns for two yards. Thee Cards are out of timeouts and have a long way to go, but Bruce Arians is their coach so who knows if they’ll try to make something happen here. The drive starts at the Arizona 23. The Rams got a nice pass to Austin to get deep into Cards territory, and Arizona may have just got a break as it looked like St. Louis RB Todd Gurley may not have been down when the play was whisteled dead on a run. As it is, the Rams call a timeout and it is 3rd and 4 at the Arizona 12. 5:40 left in first quarterCards pick up a big first down when Palmer dumps the ball off to David Johnson, who breaks tackles and would not be denied. Following play is a deep ball from Palmer to Michael Floyd, who does not come down with the catch but does draw a PI call. First down at the 1.8:32 left in first quarterThe defense makes its mark on this game, forcing a three-and-out that is capped by a Markus Golden sack of Foles. Though the Rams have some skill, you have to figure this should be a game where they struggle to move the ball, which is why that first turnover was so huge.Patrick Peterson nearly breaks the punt return for a long one, and instead is able to get to the Arizona 34 before he is tripped up (and flipped in the air).Offense back on the field. 1:13 left in third quarterNew verse, same as the first. Cards move down the field at ease, but have to settle for a Catanzaro field goal after Palmer is sacked on 3rd and 2. The 38-yard kick makes the score 17-12 and again, while Arizona has had success moving the ball, settling for field goals is no way to win a game. 2:14 left in first quarterNo turnover but the three-and-out happens, so that’s good for Arizona. Peterson fair catches the punt at the Arizona 40. Can the offense get going? GLENDALE, Ariz. — It may not be the most intimidating of NFC West matchups, but it might just be the most concerning.The St. Louis Rams are in town to take on the Cardinals, with their QB hurting defense and pedestrian — at best — offense.The Cardinals are looking to improve their record to 4-0 while the Rams are trying to even theirs up at 2-2.Mike Iupati will be be making his Cardinals debut at left guard while Andre Ellington is once again inactive due to a knee injury. 3:27 left in second quarter 1:05 left in third quarterThe kick return is a good one but a penalty pushes it back to the Rams 12. Can the defense force a three-and-out? Maybe a turnover? 14:46 left in first quarterPalmer won’t get that chance as David Johnson fumbles the opening kickoff. The Rams recovered and have the ball at the Arizona 17. Not the way you want to start against a team with a struggling offense, giving them prime field position to start a drive. Chandler Catanzaro connects on a 21-yard field goal and the Cards are on the board, though they still trail in this one by a score of 7-3. 1:13 left in second quarterDrive stalls when Palmer’s pass to David Johnson falls incomplete. Crowd wanted a flag, but looked like the RB slowed down in an effort to draw a penalty so the no-call was probably the right call. Catanzaro is good from 42 yards out on the field goal, so now the score is 10-9 Rams. 9:59 left in first quarterA couple of short passes to John Brown helped move the Cardinals down the field, but the Rams started to get some pressure on Palmer and ended up dropping him in the backfield a couple of times, including for a sack on third down. The big concern going into this game had to be whether or not Arizona’s line could protect No. 3, and so far the early returns are not great. End of second quarterA Jared Veldheer hold wipes out a big gain to John Brown, which then leads to Arians conceding the drive and Palmer kneeling on the ball. The Cards head into the half trailing 10-9 in a weird game.Arizona’s offense has moved the ball while the defense has been stout, but a really bad turnover on the opening kick and an inability to get the ball into the end zone have the score where it’s at.If you’re the Cardinals, how do you feel about this? 2:00 left in second quarterLarry Fitzgerald makes his first catch of the game (after an earlier drop) and then Chris Johnson breaks off a 23-yard run to get the Cardinals to the St. Louis 46. Solid response so far, but with a couple minutes left can they finish the drive and take the lead? Derrick Hall satisfied with D-backs’ buying and selling 6 Comments   Share   6:50 left in second quarterThe Cards were moving and then, with Palmer trying to hit Brown on a deep ball, are picked off in the end zone. It looked like Brown had a step on the corner but the ball was a little late and a little short, allowing it to be tracked and intercepted by Janoris Jenkins.It is the Cards’ second turnover of the day, and while it’s not as bad as the first, it’s certainly not good. A better throw probably would have been a score. 7-6 Rams. 2:51 left in fourth quarterThe Cards get the stop after Foles for some reason tries to attack Peterson on third down. The punt is returned to the Arizona 37, and the Cards have great field position to try and win this game. Can they do it? 5:44 left in third quarterThanks to some good runs by Todd Gurley, the Rams end up scoring a TD. Foles hit Stedman Bailey on a nice 18-yard pass, and the Rams extend their lead to 17-9. Turning turnovers into points is a very simple way to win a football game, and the Rams have done that.The Cardinals are in no way out of this game, but they’ve done little to help themselves. 1:27 left in fourth quarterGurley breaks off a long run on first down for a first down. Cards stuff him for a five-yard loss on the next play, but are forced to spend their second timeout. The RB picks up two yards on his next run, but the Cards use their final timeout. 8:16 left in fourth quarterWoops X 2. The Rams pick up Arizona’s blitz and buy Foles enough time to find Austin for a 12-yard TD. Powers beaten on the play, and the PAT makes it a two-score game in Arizona. Rams 24, Cardinals 15, and this is why you can’t settle for field goals. Still 5:44 left in third quarterThe kickoff sails out of the end zone so the Cards will start their drive at the 20. They seemed to be finding a groove on their last series before the fumble. Let’s see if that derailed them or if they can keep that going. Has to be a frustrating game for Arizona, who has shown flashes of the explosiveness we saw in the first three weeks but has pretty much tripped over their own feet when given a chance to do something big. The 5: Takeaways from the Coyotes’ introduction of Alex Meruelo The Cardinals are the better team, but they’re giving the Rams good field position. Can’t do that. Should be fun.End of gameGurley picks up the first down and that’ll do it. Cards lose 24-22, have only themselves to blame.Time to head downstairs and get some reaction.
