This was part of a wider return to risk on the FTSE 100, which saw travel, entertainment and mining stocks in demand as well.That changed yesterday, when the Rolls-Royce share price crashed by 8%. It is down another 10% this morning. Some of you might see this as a buying opportunity. Personally, I wouldn’t.5G is here – and shares of this ‘sleeping giant’ could be a great way for you to potentially profit!According to one leading industry firm, the 5G boom could create a global industry worth US$12.3 TRILLION out of thin air…And if you click here we’ll show you something that could be key to unlocking 5G’s full potential…The FTSE 100 aerospace and defence giant’s problems aren’t a flash in the pan. It has underperformed for years. While I am all for taking advantage of cheap FTSE 100 shares after they have been sold off, I think this is a risk too far.I’d beware the Rolls-Royce share priceThursday’s crash came after hedge fund manager AKO Capital dumped its entire 5.2% stake in the group. Today’s sell-off followed last night’s news that Standard & Poor’s Global Ratings has downgraded the group to junk status. After 20 years of investment grade status, Rolls-Royce’s long and short-term ratings have been cut to BB and B respectively. That hurts for such a prestigious brand.I think this is a wake-up call for bargain hunters who were getting sucked into some of the riskier areas of the FTSE 100. Investors targeted travel stocks such as Carnival, IAG and easyJet as Germany and Spain eased travel restrictions. They were looking forward to a world where people would be happy to fly again.We’re not there yet and even if we were, I felt they were making a big leap by extending that to the Rolls-Royce share price. Even if travel bookings do pick up, I think it will be some time before carriers will have the money and confidence to start making new plane orders.A Rolls-Royce spokesperson insists the group is in a strong position, as “none of our borrowing facilities contain covenants or credit rating triggers that demand early repayment, nor do any of our contracts with airlines”.There are better FTSE 100 bargainsThat is good to hear, but I would still tread carefully. Chief executive Warren East already faced a major job turning around this sprawling FTSE 100 enterprise. The Rolls-Royce share price slump began long before Covid-19. Its stock now trades two thirds lower than five years ago.The pandemic could be the opportunity he needs to give the engineering group a thorough overhaul. He has started, recently announcing at least 9,000 job losses as part of a plan to save more than £1.3bn a year.It is going to take some time for the commercial aerospace market to recover, and it may never recapture its former size. Rolls-Royce was swift to cut its dividend in April. And despite its problems, it doesn’t look cheap by conventional metrics, trading at 20 times earnings.I think there is a great case for buying cheap FTSE 100 stocks right now. The Rolls-Royce share price doesn’t tempt me.

The game was a classic, with Apopka rallying from a 14-point halftime deficit with two second-half touchdowns and an ad-libbed 2-point conversion by quarterback Demitri Burch to edge Dr. Phillips 15-14.The come-from-behind victory was eerily similar to 2015 when Apopka trailed 20-6 at halftime but rallied past the Panthers 22-20.Apopka leads the all-time series 15-8.

Muslim Student Association focuses on community after Paris attacks

Since the attacks, multiple reports of mosques receiving death threats and being vandalized have surfaced. There was also an armed, non-violent protest against a mosque in Irving.Yushau Sodiq is an associate professor of Islamic and Religious Studies at TCU and also a Muslim. Sodiq said the Paris attackers do not represent what the Muslim community stands for as a whole.“This fear of Islam should be removed completely and [people] should recognize that those Muslims who do something wrong in Paris or anywhere, they are just terrorists and to me they are not Muslims,” Sodiq said. “If they were Muslim, they would not cause harm to others.”Haider said the fear felt in the non-Muslim community as a result of the Paris attacks is being felt just the same within the Muslim community as well, especially the MSA.“I think we have to be a little more sensitive now about what we say and how we go about our events because it’s hard to say ‘Muslim Student Association’ without certain descriptions of who are,” Haider said. “The word ‘Muslim’ has a very sensitive connotation nowadays.”Sodiq said he has experienced more support for the Muslim community now despite the anti-Islamic acts occurring throughout the nation.“Some of my colleagues at TCU have come to me and said, ‘Don’t fear. We are supporting you,’ and that is what we need,” Sodiq said. “We should rally together to fight terrorism.”[View the story “Muslim support ” on Storify]Haider and the MSA are attempting to foster this type of support throughout the TCU and Dallas-Fort Worth community.“One of our goals is to make sure when people on the TCU campus hear the name ‘Muslim Student Association’ they don’t automatically get a sense of fear,” Haider said. “We want them to know it’s a safe place to mingle with other Muslims.”Haider said the MSA is currently planning on creating a safer environment for the mosque in Irving.“We’re trying to organize, among Muslims and non-Muslims, a counter-protest so that we can make a way for them to get inside without getting harassed,” Haider said. “We want to make sure people trying to worship Islam can get into the mosque safely and get out safely.”Sodiq said it is this type of community outreach in the Muslim community that will show what Muslims truly believe.“[Radicals] are just following their own whims and desires and they have no right to do so,” Sodiq said. “Muslims in the United States must turn on their feet and say, ‘We are not with the terrorists and we are against what they are doing.’”The MSA wants to make this message clear and is attempting to accomplish through their community outreach.Roxana Aguirre, the program coordinator for Inclusiveness and Intercultural Services at TCU, is helping the MSA facilitate and put their events on a bigger scale. Aguirre does this by assisting the MSA in collaborating with other groups on-campus.“If you have an interest or are invested with a group on campus and then they collaborate with another group on-campus, then you’re more than likely to be invested in it too,” Aguirre said.Aguirre said she saw the value in expanding the presence of the MSA and other groups beyond the students.“I think getting not only student-groups but faculty and staff and community leaders invested in your program, it gives you an outreach that you wouldn’t get if it was only your group,” Aguirre said.Haider said the MSA is planning more events in collaboration with other faith-based organizations on campus.“TCU Better Together, an inter-religious faith group, is actually taking a lot of initiative to get people of Christian and Jewish faiths from organizations like FCA and Hillel to come together and help out with community outreach for Muslims in the area,” Haider said.Haider said he hopes a Muslim community that has been afraid to attend a public meeting since the Paris attacks can be reassured and “rekindled”.Statistics courtesy of 2010 U.S. Religion Census and The Association of Religion Data ArchivesHaider also said he believes Muslims reaching out to the community can help shed the misconception that Islam is a violent religion and Muslims are people who support such violence.“We’re not a religion that imposes violence on people,” Haider said “We want to try to instill peace into a community that has given us a place to live. Islam has brought people together in the United States to try and influence communities and enhance communities rather than bring them down.” Quarterback Dylan Thomas on road to recovery following MCL injurylast_img read more

The Limits of the ‘FEMA Hold’ Moratorium

first_img in Commentary, Daily Dose, Featured, News The Best Markets For Residential Property Investors 2 days ago Demand Propels Home Prices Upward 2 days ago Previous: For Homeowners, ‘Historically Affordable’ MBS Remain Source of Capital Next: The Industry Pulse: Women’s History Month Edition Home / Commentary / The Limits of the ‘FEMA Hold’ Moratorium Servicers Navigate the Post-Pandemic World 2 days ago  Print This Post FEMA holds Foreclosures Texas 2021-03-08 David Wharton Governmental Measures Target Expanded Access to Affordable Housing 2 days ago Related Articles In February 2021, an unprecedented snap of winter weather covered much of Texas in snow, ice, and freezing temperatures. Although the winter weather lasted less than one week, the federal declaration of a major disaster in Texas initiated a FEMA Hold that will last 90 days. At a time when many loans already fall under the COVID moratorium, servicers should consider several limits of the FEMA Hold, which suggest it may not apply widely in Texas.Source of the FEMA HoldThe Robert T. Stafford Disaster Relief and Emergency Assistance Act empowers the president to declare a major disaster or emergency, thereby initiating relief efforts coordinated by FEMA (42 U.S.C. 5121–5208). The current version of the Stafford Act does not mention foreclosures or mortgages. What, then, is the source of the FEMA Hold?The FEMA Hold refers to a regulation set forth by the Department of Housing and Urban Development (HUD) in Chapter 14 of the Administration of Insured Home Mortgages Handbook (4330.1). The regulation provides: “All the National Disaster Areas identified by the Federal Emergency Management Agency (FEMA) will be subject to a moratorium on foreclosures following the disaster.” (Handbook 14-2.)Limit 1: FHA-Insured MortgagesTo what types of mortgages does this moratorium apply? The stated purposes of Chapter 14 focus on mortgages insured by the FHA. Chapter 14 regulations aim in part at mitigating “hardships faced by mortgagors with FHA-insured mortgages” and reducing “the impact of the disaster on claims submitted for FHA insurance benefits.” (Handbook 14-1.A.)Furthermore, the Handbook exists to provide “guidelines that must be followed when servicing an FHA/HUD-insured mortgage” (Handbook 1-2). Chapter 14 authorizes FEMA to give temporary mortgage payments assistance to “eligible applicants who, as a result of a major disaster or emergency, have received written notice of dispossession or eviction from their primary residence by foreclosure of any mortgage or lien” [Handbook 14-6, citing 44 CFR 206.101(g)]. The context of the Handbook and the relevant provision of the Code of Federal Regulations, taken together, presuppose that foreclosures may proceed on non-FHA-insured mortgages even under a FEMA Hold. Although borrowers with other types of mortgages may apply to FEMA for financial assistance with loan payments, the moratorium on foreclosures does not apply to those borrowers.Fannie Mae, Freddie Mac, and VA LoansLike the Handbook, this article focuses on FHA-insured mortgages. Fannie Mae’s Servicing Guide section D1-3-01, entitled “Evaluating the Impact of a Disaster Event and Assisting a Borrower,” addresses servicing loans of borrowers impacted by natural disasters. Freddie Mac’s Single-Family Seller/Servicer Guide at chapter 8404 considers “Servicing Mortgages Impacted by a Disaster.” The U.S. Department of Veterans Affairs (VA) encourages servicers to establish a 90-day moratorium and to extend all possible forbearance to borrowers on VA-insured loans impacted by disasters. See VA Guidance on Natural Disasters (citing 38 CFR 36.4311, 4314, 4315, and 4359). These resources provide starting points for exploring the differing rules and guidelines for responding to natural disasters set forth by Fannie Mae, Freddie Mac, and the VA.Limit 2: Properties Directly Affected by the DisasterReturning to FHA-insured loans, HUD clearly and emphatically limits the FEMA Hold to properties directly affected by the natural disaster: “The property has to be directly affected by the disaster to be included in the moratorium” (Handbook 14-2). Hurricane Katrina in Louisiana or Hurricanes Matthew and Irma in Florida directly affected many properties by leveling or severely damaging them. The FEMA Hold undoubtedly covered such properties. However, the recent winter weather in Texas had less physical impact on properties.On February 19, 2021, the president declared that a major disaster exists in 77 counties in Texas. FEMA added another 31 counties to the federal disaster area on February 23, 2021. However, the disaster was limited to atypical cold weather including snow and ice and power outages. The snow and ice melted and power was restored to most homes less than a week after the declaration. Although some roofs were damaged under the weight of snow and ice, property damage occurred mainly where water pipes froze and burst, causing water leakage. Because such damage could be immediately mitigated by turning off water sources, relatively few residential homes sustained extensive damage as a direct result of the natural disaster. Therefore Texas’ winter weather affected relatively few homes such that they would fall under the FEMA Hold.Limit 3: ForeclosuresFinally, HUD limits the FEMA Hold “to the initiation of foreclosures and the suspension of all foreclosures already in process” (Handbook 1402.B). HUD omits from the FEMA Hold additional restrictions on mortgagees found in the CARES Act and Regulation X. Specifically, the FEMA Hold does not prohibit mortgagees from moving for a foreclosure judgment or order of sale [see Handbook 1402.B; cf. CARES Act § 4022(c)(2); 12 C.F.R. § 1024.41]. Under a FEMA Hold, then, servicers may continue to prosecute foreclosure actions.ConclusionThe moratorium of the FEMA Hold prohibits only foreclosures of FHA-insured loans on properties directly affected by the declared disaster. Strictly speaking, the FEMA Hold likely applies to few homes in the Texas counties declared to be disaster areas during the winter weather of February 2021.

Anatomy of Pseudotritonia Thiele, 1912 and Notaeolidia Eliot, 1905 (Gastropoda: Opisthobranchia: Nudibranchia) from Signy Island, Antarctica

first_imgSeveral species of nudibranch molluscs are abundant amongst the rich benthic hard substratum communities found close to the British Antarctic Survey base at Signy Island, in the Atlantic sector of the Antarctic. Over the austral summer 1992/1993, two of the authors (LWB and DKAB) were able to collect some of the lesser known species of Nudibranchia at depths between 3 and 40 metres, using SCUBA. New information on morphology and anatomy of two of these species, Pseudotritonia gracilidens Odhner, 1944 (Charcotiidae, Arminoidea) and Notaeolidia gigas Eliot, 1905(Notaeolidiidae, Aeolidoidea) are presented in this paper.

US destroyer Shoup on second Fiji stop in two weeks

first_img Photo: USS Shoup (DDG 86) on its first OMSI port call in Suva, Fiji, on October 3. Photo: US Navy View post tag: OMSI View post tag: US Navy View post tag: USS Shoupcenter_img Share this article Days after wrapping up the deployment’s first Fiji port call, US Navy guided-missile destroyer USS Shoup (DDG 86) returned to Suva, Fiji, on October 14.USS Shoup previously arrived in Suva as part of the ship’s Oceania Maritime Security Initiative (OMSI) deployment on October 3.The US Navy did not provide specific information as to why the destroyer was making a return visit in such a short span saying only the port call was part of the ship’s maritime security mission with Pacific Island nations.“While in Suva, USS Shoup will host a formal reception, highlighting the partnership between the US Navy and country of Fiji, as well as Shoup’s OMSI mission,” the navy said. Shoup sailors will also conduct professional exchanges with Fijian sailors and participate in community events during the port visit.“We’re looking forward to hosting our Fijian counterparts aboard the Navy’s finest warship,” said Cmdr. Andy Strickland, commanding officer of USS Shoup. “Our last port visit here, while short, was an incredible experience. I know our crew is looking forward to exploring the island and engaging with the local community again.”A US Coast Guard Law Enforcement Detachment (LEDET) from the Pacific Tactical Law Enforcement Team is embarked on Shoup as part of the OMSI mission. Through bilateral agreements, the US Coast Guard assists 10 Pacific Island nations in patrolling the waters around their exclusive economic zones (EEZs). Each of the nations have territorial waters stretching out 12 miles from shore. Beyond that, stretching out 200 nautical miles are EEZs, areas defined by national law that allows each nation exclusive rights to the exploration and use of maritime resources.OMSI deployments are a secretary of defense initiative aimed at diminishing transnational illegal activity on the high seas in the Pacific Island nations of Oceania’s exclusive economic zones (EEZ) and enhancing regional security and interoperability with partner nations.last_img read more
