Young people are more likely to be long-term givers when they get involved in charity at an early age, according to a survey conducted by Giving Nation.Giving Nation, the independent initiative working with secondary schools to get moreof the UK’s youth involved in charities, found that over three quarters of pupils surveyed had given to charity the last time they were asked. However, those who took part in Giving Nation’s first ‘G-Week’ (Giving Week) in July 2003, were 30% more likely to see themselves as future givers. The survey revealed that girls are significantly more likely to give than boys, with mothers being identified as the person most likely to be seen giving time or money to charity. Over half of pupils thatparticipated in G-Week in 2003 stated that by taking part they were made more aware of charities’ work and had increased confidence in the role that charities play in society, including how donations are spent. Seventy per cent agreed that “It’s cool to volunteer and help people.” Advertisement Howard Lake | 5 April 2004 | Newslast_img read more

40 Percent of Farms Managed by Multiple Operators

first_img By Hoosier Ag Today – Jan 29, 2017 40 Percent of Farms Managed by Multiple Operators SHARE Facebook Twitter New data released last week by the U.S. Department of Agriculture shows nearly 40 percent of all U.S. farms are managed by more than one operator. USDA’s Economic Research Service says in 2015, 39 percent of the more than 800,000 U.S. farms had secondary operators. USDA says commercial-sized farms often require more management and labor than an individual can provide. Also, additional operators can offer other resources, such as capital or farmland. Having a secondary operator may also provide a successor when an older principal operator phases out of farming. Because nearly all farms are family-owned, family members often serve as secondary operators and nearly two-thirds of all secondary operators were spouses of principal operators. Multiple-operator farms are most prevalent among nonfamily farms, accounting for 85 percent of that group.Some multiple-operator farms are also run by multiple generations. About 6 percent of all farms, and 16 percent of all multiple-operator farms, were multiple-generation farms, with at least 20 years’ difference between the ages of the oldest and youngest operators.Source: NAFB News Service SHARE Home Indiana Agriculture News 40 Percent of Farms Managed by Multiple Operators Facebook Twitter Previous articleRyan Martin’s Indiana Ag Forecast for January 30, 2017Next articleKnowing When To Shut Up Hoosier Ag Todaylast_img read more

More than 100 people rushed to the station in response to an appeal for help which staff had time to broadcast. Anti-riot police attacked those who came to stop the station’s closure. The World Association of Community Radio Broadcasters said the police used tear-gas and that several people had to be hospitalised for treatment to their injuries.Broadcast equipment was also seized in a similar raid at 7 a.m. the same day in Coronel Oviedo on Tenondé FM, a station run by the National Peasant Organisation (ONAC).Conatel uses very disparate criteria for legalising radio stations and is much more likely to approve a request from a pirate commercial radio station than one from a community radio.

Of these, Hispanics accounted for 15 percent of the net ownership gains. In terms of household formations, the report noted that Hispanics accounted for 265,000 new household formations or, 28.6 percent of total U.S. household formations representing a modest fall from 340,000 household formations by Hispanics in 2016.Despite these gains, three main factors slowed the growth of homeownership among Hispanics, the report indicated. They included a shortage of housing inventory, natural disasters, and uncertain immigration policy. Giving examples of areas and metros that were heavily populated by Hispanics, the report indicated that affordable housing remained the main concern for the group. The report said that In Las Vegas new home starts were up 9 percent in 2017 but, only 21 percent of those were under $300,000, as compared to 42 percent in 2016. San Diego began 2017 with a surge in new homes priced at $1 million and more even as this metro continued to experience severe supply constraints at the affordable price points. Giving the example of Houston, the report said that Houston saw growth with new home starts up 5.8 percent; however, its greatest increase was for starts above $300,000, which increased by 11.1 percent.

How the CFPB is Helping Homeowners Struggling with Payments

This has put more pressure on the Consumer Financial Protection Bureau (CFPB) to find ways of helping homeowners who have been impacted by COVID-19.At this year’s MBA Convention and Expo, Kathy Kraninger, director of the CFPB responded to questions posed by Susan Stewart, 2021 MBA chairman and CEO of SWBC Mortgage. One of the biggest topics of discussion that Kraninger addressed was how the CFPB is taking measures to inform the public about what they can do if they are having trouble making their home loan payments.“It starts first and foremost with the flexibilities that the CARES Act provided,” Kraninger said. “Congress and the administration acted very swiftly in that process. And we also move swiftly from the Bureau’s standpoint, in getting that information out.”Kraninger discussed how the CFPB made informative materials like videos and blogs available online to inform the public, including videos in both English and Spanish. Much of this content focused on “what the CARES Act mortgage forbearance program was,” so that those struggling to make their home loan payments could understand their options. The videos and blogs have already reached 4 million people, according to Kraninger.“We really are reaching people,” Kraninger said. “We still know there are more people to reach as well, so we’re engaging with the mortgage servicing consortium” as well as the Urban Institute.The messaging that CFPB has put out is particularly meant to inform “individuals who have not yet extended their CARES Act forbearance” or those who have not applied but may still qualify. “You have an option here to actually stay in your home,” Kraninger said. “And that’s certainly an important message, recognizing the impacts of the pandemic.”As the CEO of a servicer, Stewart said that this is the kind of information the public needs to know.“One of the things that we now all grappling with is to make sure people know that, go ahead and be in contact,” Stewart said. “It’s better to make the call and ask for help and explain your circumstances and extend or do what you need to do.”Aside from getting forbearance information out to the public, Stewart also asked Kraninger about the CFPB’s release of a proposal for a new category of “Seasoned” Qualified Mortgage (QM).“We believe that a pricing threshold is a more holistic measure of an individual’s ability to repay than DTI [Debt-to-Income Ratio] alone,” Kraninger said. “We also knew that the 43% DTI– if that were strictly put in place, and strictly followed without the Patch [Government-Sponsored Enterprise (GSE) Patch] as a valve to let off some of that steam–would really preclude access to credit and really reduce the pay for many people”On the same day that Kraninger spoke at the virtual conference, the CFPB announced that it would be extending the GSE Patch.Looking ahead, Stewart asked Kraninger about what may happen beyond the pandemic when borrowers begin to exit the CARES Act and other loan forbearance programs and whether or not the CFPB monitor for any particular risk to consumers in the post-pandemic future.Kraninger said that the CFPB would do just that. She said the Bureau would continue to talk to servicers about what challenges they are facing and what they’re hearing from consumers. Kraninger said doing this will help with “figuring out a level playing field, figuring out issues happening across the market.” About Author: Cristin Espinosa Home / Daily Dose / How the CFPB is Helping Homeowners Struggling with Payments Related Articles October 20, 2020 1,278 Views center_img Data Provider Black Knight to Acquire Top of Mind 2 days ago The Best Markets For Residential Property Investors 2 days ago Cristin Espinosa is a reporter for DS News and MReport.

Evaluation of whistler mode chorus amplification during an injection event observed on CRRES

first_imgThe excitation of nightside whistler mode chorus emissions in the low-density region outside the plasmapause is investigated during an injection of plasma sheet electrons into the inner magnetosphere. CRRES data of the electron phase space density (PSD) over the LEPA energy range between 0.1 keV and 30 keV are used to develop an analytical model for the distribution function of injected low-energy electrons. The path-integrated growth of chorus waves is then evaluated with the HOTRAY code by tracing unducted whistler mode chorus waves in a hot magnetized plasma. The results indicate that newly injected electrons are responsible for the intensification of lower-band whistler mode chorus. However, slightly higher electron anisotropy than that obtained from the 5 min-averaged electron PSD data is required to reproduce the observed wave intensity during an injection event. We suggest that the injected electron anisotropy is reduced due to pitch angle scattering by the enhanced chorus waves within the 5-min interval over which the CRRES data are analyzed.last_img read more
