He recently spoke with FOX Business about the GSEs leverage and Fannie and Freddie’s path ahead.”I believe that under the statute I am required to fix [Fannie and Freddie],” Calabria said.”Fannie and Freddie are less leveraged than when I started,” Calabria added. “We’re going in the right direction.”According to Calabria, regulators will know what the target capital level for Fannie Mae and Freddie Mac will be sometime next year, noting that he’d feel comfortable with “a whole lot more than they have today.”Fannie Mae reported a net income and a comprehensive income of $4.0 Billion for Q3 2019, up from a net income of $3.4 billion and comprehensive income of $3.4 billion for the second quarter of 2019, while Freddie Mac posted a $1.7 Billion net income. According to the GSEs, these incomes represent yet another step toward adding the capital necessary to move toward private ownership.Fannie Mae was the largest issuer of single-family mortgage-related securities in the secondary market during the first nine months of 2019. The company’s estimated market share of new single-family mortgage-related securities issuances was 39% for the third quarter of 2019.Freddie Mac reports that conservatorship capital reduced by $5.2 billion from the prior year, due in part to credit risk transfer (CRT) activity, home price appreciation, legacy asset dispositions, and a decrease in deferred tax assets.The Federal Housing Finance Agency (FHFA) recently released a new Strategic Plan for the Conservatorships of Fannie Mae and Freddie Mac and a new 2020 Scorecard for Fannie Mae, Freddie Mac, and Common Securitization Solutions. According to the FHFA, the three objectives of this new Strategic Plan and Scorecard are to ensure that the GSEs foster competitive, liquid, efficient, and resilient (CLEAR) national ​housing finance markets; operate in a safe and sound manner appropriate for entities in conservatorship; and prepare for their eventual exits from the conservatorships.“Our nation’s mortgage finance system is in urgent need of reform,” said Calabria. “The vision for reform articulated in the Strategic Plan and advanced in the Scorecard will serve borrowers and renters by preserving mortgage credit availability, protect taxpayers by ensuring Fannie Mae and Freddie Mac can withstand an economic downturn, and support a strong and resilient secondary mortgage market.” Sign up for DS News Daily Subscribelast_img read more

According to him, the samples were handed over to an officer who himself gave the sample to  another officer or carrying the same to the Central Laboratory at Delhi and these seals remained with the Director, as such the chances of tampering could not be ruled out and also on the ground that the case of the prosecution was unnatural and improbable. The Trial Court acquitted the accused on this ground. The High Court, later, set aside acquittal and convicted the accused.The bench referred to a three judge bench judgment in State of H.P. v. Pawan Kumar which considered the issue whether the safeguards provided by Section 50 of the Narcotic Drugs and Psychotropic Substances Act, 1985, regarding search of any “person” would also apply to any bag, briefcase or any such article or container etc., which is being carried by him. It said:”As rightly held by the High Court, this Court in the case of State of H.P. v. Pawan Kumar  has held that Section 50 of the NDPS Act is applicable only in the case of personal search, as such, there is no basis for the findings recorded by the trial court that there was non-compliance of provision under Section 50 of the NDPS Act.”The court noted that the evidence on record established that the counter of the dhaba which was constructed on the land owned by his wife near the temple and the charas was found in the counter of the dhaba in a gunny bag. The facts of the case show that accused not only had direct physical control over charas, he had the knowledge of its presence and character, the court observed.However, taking note of the fact that the incident occurred in the year 2001 and that the accused claimed to be a priest in the temple, who is now aged about 65 years, the bench modified the sentence from 15 years rigorous imprisonment to 10 years. In State of H.P. v. Pawan Kumar, it was held that Section 50 of the Act can have no application when the contraband was allegedly recovered from the bag, which was being carried by the accused. “There is no warrant or justification for giving an extended meaning to the word “person” occurring in the same provision so as to include even some bag, article or container or some other baggage being carried by him.”, it was held in that case.Case no.: CRIMINAL APPEAL NO.688 OF 2013Case name: Jeet Ram vs. Narcotics Control Bureau, Chandigarh Coram: Justices Ashok Bhushan, R.

HOLIDAY VOICES: Jackson continues to offer concert

first_img Print Article Latest Stories When the Troy Arts Council realized that hosting the annual “Shelia Jackson and Friends Christmas Concert” at the Crosby Theater in 2020 was only a remote possibility, they began to look for an option. What they discovered was that COVID-19 has made “virtual” the universal “going option” for the delivery of programming.The idea to host “Sheila and Friends” virtually was, initially, just a way to offer the Christmas concert locally. Sponsored Content By Jaine Treadwell By The Penny Hoarder Next Up“But it really worked out to be an even better than we imagined,” said Bill Hopper, president of the sponsoring Troy Arts Council. “We found a new way to deliver the Christmas concert so many more people had the opportunity to experience it.“This virtual concert has really opened our eyes to something that, for us, is new. It’s a way to reach more people in more places and much more easily.”Hopper said the “Shelia Jackson and Friends” Christmas concert has been viewed on local cable television and also streamed across the country. Turkeys From Heaven provides opportunities for giving An open invitation is extended to help keep the Turkeys from Heaven program going and to keep doing for those… read more “We have had people from all around the country view the concert, which is a showcase of local and area talent,” he said. “A viewer in California was extremely impressed with the variety of talent on the show — the singers, musicians and dancers. And, also, appreciative that she got to enjoy the concert without even buying a ticket.”And, that same opportunity will be available to viewing audiences in the Wiregrass and River regions on Christmas Eve and Christmas Day.“Shelia Jackson and Friends” will air on WAKA on Christmas Eve and on WSFA on Christmas Day.“This will be a wonderful opportunity to hear beautiful music, great accompaniment and incredible dancing in the comfort of your home on these two special days of the year,” Hopper said. “And, what a great opportunity to showcase local talent in such a wonderful and meaningful Christmas show.” Hopper said the success of TAC’s “Shelia and Friends” virtual concert has provided the arts organization with a new way to deliver in-person concerts so that more people will have the opportunity to enjoy them without having to leave home and at no charge.‘Virtual programs also will be a way that we can take programs to the nursing home and other health care facilities,” he said. “Virtual programming has so many possibilities. We just have to tap into them.”The TAC is continually seeking ways to provide arts opportunities to more people and virtually is the by-word, Hopper said.As a way of saying “thank you again” to its 2020 patrons, the Troy Arts Council will provide 2021 program tickets, at no cost, for the shows that were cancelled. “The TAC is devoted to providing quality arts experiences to our local community and beyond,” Hopper said. “Now that we have seen that, virtually, we can reach farther than we ever imagined, we are extremely excited about the possibilities ahead for sharing the wealth of local talent far beyond what we have ever imagined.”“ Email the author Pike County Sheriff’s Office offering community child ID kits Book Nook to reopen Published 8:09 pm Tuesday, December 15, 2020 Troy falls to No. 13 Clemson The Penny Hoarder Issues “Urgent” Alert: 6 Companies… Remember America’s heroes on Memorial Day You Might Like HOLIDAY VOICES: Jackson continues to offer concert Plans underway for historic Pike County celebration Around the WebMd: Do This Immediately if You Have Diabetes (Watch)Blood Sugar BlasterIf You Have Ringing Ears Do This Immediately (Ends Tinnitus)Healthier LivingWomen Only: Stretch This Muscle to Stop Bladder Leakage (Watch)Patriot Health ZoneHave an Enlarged Prostate?

3 suicides in 1 week by sailors from aircraft carrier USS George H.W. Bush

first_imgU.S. Navy(NORFOLK, Va.) — The deaths by suicide of three sailors serving aboard the aircraft carrier USS George H.W. Bush last week have led the ship’s commanding officer to urge his crew to come together and help shipmates in need.The three unrelated deaths by suicide occurred while the ship has been in dry dock at its homeport of Norfolk, Va., undergoing scheduled long-term maintenance since earlier this year. None of the deaths occurred aboard the ship.“Avengers, family, and friends, it is with a heavy heart that I can confirm the loss of three sailors last week in separate, unrelated incidents from apparent suicide,” Capt. Sean Bailey, the ship’s commanding officer, wrote in a post to the ship’s Facebook page. “My heart is broken.”Bailey said these are the third, fourth and fifth crew member deaths by suicide in the last two years.“Now is the time to come together as a crew and as a family to grieve, to support each other, and to care for those in need,” he added. “We need all hands to engage by bringing forward your suggestions and ideas for how we can work together to prevent another suicide. I want to reiterate that there is never any stigma or repercussion from seeking help.”The Navy Times identified Chief Electronics Technician (Nuclear) James Shelton, Airman Ethan Stuart and Aviation Ordnanceman 1st Class Vincent Forline as the three sailors who died by suicide last week.Shelton and Stuart both died by suicide on Sept. 19 in separate incidents and were found at off-base locations, Forline’s death had occurred a few days earlier.“The sailors did not serve in the same departments, and there does not appear to be a connection between their deaths,” Cmdr. Jennifer Cragg, a spokeswoman for Naval Air Force Atlantic told the Navy Times.“Chaplains, psychologists, counselors, and leadership are engaged and available on board at all times to provide support and counseling to those grieving,” he wrote. “I ask that you watch closely for stressors that anyone is experiencing when they face a significant life change.“If you find yourself in need, call the Suicide Hotline number at 1-800-273-TALK (8255) or Military OneSource at 1-800-342-9647. You can also text ‘home’ to the Crisis Hotline at 741741,” he wrote.“Asking for help and supporting those who reach out is a sign of strength and resilience and never viewed negatively,” he added.The Defense Department plans to release the latest version of an annual report that tracks the rate of suicides in the military, later this week. For the first time, that report will also track the deaths by suicide of any family members of those in military service.Copyright © 2019, ABC Radio. All rights reserved.last_img read more

Surveillance video shows stepmom with Colorado boy before he went missing

first_imgEl Paso County Sheriff’s Office(EL PASO, Colo.) — The family of Gannon Stauch, a missing 11-year-old Colorado boy, made a gut-wrenching plea Wednesday for anyone with information on the child’s disappearance to come forward.“A kid doesn’t just disappear and no one sees him. … So if you have anything that’s credible, if you’re afraid, don’t worry about it. Imagine my son. Imagine how afraid he is,” Gannon’s mother Landen Hiott said through tears in a YouTube video that was posted to El Paso County’s official channel.Hiott sat with Gannon’s father, Albert Stauch, and his younger sister, Laina Stauch, in the video.“For him not to be able to talk to his sister has to be hurting him,” Hiott said.Laina ended the video with a message for the boy: “I love you, Bubba.”The plea from Gannon’s family came one day after a neighbor of his said home security footage shows the child’s stepmother leaving the house with him the day he went missing and returning hours later without him.Gannon Stauch’s stepmother, Leticia Stauch, reported him missing on Jan. 27, telling investigators he was last seen at home between 3:15 p.m. and 4:15 p.m., according to the El Paso County Sheriff’s Department. Gannon was initially reported to be a runaway, according to investigators. Last Thursday, the disappearance was upgraded to a missing and endangered child case.Neighbor Roderrick Drayton told ABC News that after the search for Gannon intensified late last week, he decided to search through the footage his system recorded from the day Stauch was reported missing.Drayton said the video shows the stepmother getting into a red pickup truck parked in the driveway of their Colorado Springs home. The footage also appears to show Gannon walking slowly as he approaches and gets into the truck, Drayton said.“I caught Gannon getting into her vehicle at 10:13 Monday morning,” Drayton said. He said the video shows the truck returning to the house at 2:19 p.m. but Gannon is nowhere to be seen.“I just kept searching and I saw where she came back. And he didn’t get out of the vehicle. So she came back by herself about four hours later,” Drayton said.A spokeswoman for the El Paso County Sheriff’s Department said investigators have a copy of the video and do not dispute Drayton’s description of what the footage purportedly shows. The video, they caution, is only one part of the investigation.“This is just one piece in a very, very, very large puzzle,” spokeswoman Jackie Kirby told ABC News Tuesday morning.Drayton says he showed the security footage for Gannon’s father on Sunday.“He just broke down crying and said, ‘she lied. She lied about the time. He didn’t go to a friend’s house,’” Drayton said.Multiple attempts to reach Leticia Stauch have been unsuccessful.In an interview with KKTV-TV, the CBS affiliate in Colorado Springs, Leticia Stauch denied having anything to do with Gannon’s disappearance.“I would never, ever, ever hurt this child,” Stauch told KKTV.“We are going to find Gannon and that’s the main goal that we all have. I’m just ready for Gannon to come home,” she said.Crime scene investigators were seen Monday carrying items out of the house where Gannon lived with Stauch and his biological father. Searchers on horseback were seen canvassing a new area west of Colorado Springs.The El Paso County Sheriff’s Department, which is leading the investigation along with help from the FBI and the National Center for Missing and Endangered Children, has not named any suspects or persons of interest in Gannon’s disappearance.Copyright © 2020, ABC Audio.

The impact of secondary ice production on Arctic stratocumulus

first_imgIn situ measurements of Arctic clouds frequently show that ice crystal number concentrations (ICNCs) are much higher than the number of available ice-nucleating particles (INPs), suggesting that secondary ice production (SIP) may be active. Here we use a Lagrangian parcel model (LPM) and a large-eddy simulation (LES) to investigate the impact of three SIP mechanisms (rime splintering, break-up from ice–ice collisions and drop shattering) on a summer Arctic stratocumulus case observed during the Aerosol-Cloud Coupling And Climate Interactions in the Arctic (ACCACIA) campaign. Primary ice alone cannot explain the observed ICNCs, and drop shattering is ineffective in the examined conditions. Only the combination of both rime splintering (RS) and collisional break-up (BR) can explain the observed ICNCs, since both of these mechanisms are weak when activated alone. In contrast to RS, BR is currently not represented in large-scale models; however our results indicate that this may also be a critical ice-multiplication mechanism. In general, low sensitivity of the ICNCs to the assumed INP, to the cloud condensation nuclei (CCN) conditions and also to the choice of BR parameterization is found. Finally, we show that a simplified treatment of SIP, using a LPM constrained by a LES and/or observations, provides a realistic yet computationally efficient way to study SIP effects on clouds. This method can eventually serve as a way to parameterize SIP processes in large-scale models.last_img read more

Bare-faced cheek of thief at Regent’s

first_imgA member of Regent’s Park kitchen staff had her belongings stolen during a bizarre incident at dinner on Tuesday evening. The man who made the theft then proceeded to walk bare-chested through the dining hall in Regent’s. Tori Purrett, who works part time at the college, had her mobile phone and money from her wallet stolen from the kitchen staff room. Purrett said the theft “was quite annoying”: “I lost £50 from my wallet and then he stole my phone. I’d just put £10 credit on my phone as well.” However, the incident was most notable for its surreal nature. Regent’s kitchen staff are uncertain how the man entered the firstfloor staff room. Although the back door of the kitchen was open, a number of people would have seen the man walk in. According to Purrett, the thief, who was about 5’6”, searched the bags of various staff members, tipping out valuables but apparently decided only to steal Purrett’s belongings. He left her cards. The intruder then poked around in the kitchen, picking up some cornflakes, before striding out into the Regent’s dining hall wearing nothing but a pair of grey tracksuit bottoms. “I can’t believe he had the nerve to do that,” Purrett said. He was immediately pursued and stopped by the JCR President, Mark Cooper, former JCR President, James Burton, and a member of the kitchen staff. The trio were unaware at that stage that the man had done anything more than wander into college. As a precaution they asked the intruder to show them the contents of his Boswell’s bag. It was only after he had been allowed to leave college premises, that Purrett realised that her belongings had been stolen. The incident was reported to the police. Cooper maintained that “security at Regent’s is taken very seriously.” He highlighted the fact that “over the last twelve months, five extra security cameras and an extra swipe-card gate have been installed”. He continued, “Students will also be given personal attack alarms by the beginning of next term”. However, it remains to be seen whether such measures can prevent this type of naked intrusion in the long-term.ARCHIVE: 6th week TT 2004last_img read more
