First drop in real incomes for 20 years

first_img Show Comments ▼ KCS-content whatsapp Tags: NULL DISPOSABLE income, allowing for inflation, fell for the first time since 1981 last year.Real household income dropped by 0.8 per cent over 2010, after a 0.5 per cent fall in the final three months of the year, the Office for National Statistics (ONS) revealed yesterday.The figures reveal the squeeze on living standards that Bank of England governor Mervyn King has described as the most severe since the 1920s.Meanwhile, the ONS revised its GDP estimate for the fourth-quarter of 2010 to a 0.5 per cent contraction, up from the previous estimate of -0.6 per cent.Ignoring the effects of December’s severe winter freeze, the economy stood still in the last three months of 2010, it said – an improvement on the previous calculations, which showed a slight contraction.Nonetheless, the figures were seized upon by opposition chancellor Ed Balls. “The government is trying to cut further and faster than any other major economy in the world. Things are heading in the wrong direction,” Balls said.Growth could be hit by impending government cuts, said Markit’s Chris Williamson, yet the economist added: “Note that the fourth-quarter decline in GDP occurred despite a boost from a 0.4 per cent increase in government expenditure.”Business investment was revised up, from a previously estimated 2.5 per cent fall to a quarter-on-quarter stagnation, and 12.2 per cent annual increase, the ONS revealed. whatsapp Sharecenter_img Tuesday 29 March 2011 8:40 pm More From Our Partners Florida woman allegedly crashes children’s birthday party, rapes teennypost.comBrave 7-Year-old Boy Swims an Hour to Rescue His Dad and Little Sistergoodnewsnetwork.orgUK teen died on school trip after teachers allegedly refused her pleasnypost.comAstounding Fossil Discovery in California After Man Looks Closelygoodnewsnetwork.orgSupermodel Anne Vyalitsyna claims income drop, pushes for child supportnypost.com980-foot skyscraper sways in China, prompting panic and evacuationsnypost.comKiller drone ‘hunted down a human target’ without being told tonypost.comI blew off Adam Sandler 22 years ago — and it’s my biggest regretnypost.comInside Ashton Kutcher and Mila Kunis’ not-so-average farmhouse estatenypost.comRussell Wilson, AOC among many voicing support for Naomi Osakacbsnews.com‘The Love Boat’ captain Gavin MacLeod dies at 90nypost.comA ProPublica investigation has caused outrage in the U.S. this weekvaluewalk.comPolice Capture Elusive Tiger Poacher After 20 Years of Pursuing the Huntergoodnewsnetwork.orgMatt Gaetz swindled by ‘malicious actors’ in $155K boat sale boondogglenypost.comNative American Tribe Gets Back Sacred Island Taken 160 Years Agogoodnewsnetwork.orgMark Eaton, former NBA All-Star, dead at 64nypost.comBiden received funds from top Russia lobbyist before Nord Stream 2 giveawaynypost.com‘Neighbor from hell’ faces new charges after scaring off home buyersnypost.com First drop in real incomes for 20 years by Taboolaby TaboolaSponsored LinksSponsored LinksPromoted LinksPromoted LinksYou May LikeMisterStoryWoman Files For Divorce After Seeing This Photo – Can You See Why?MisterStoryTotal PastThe Ingenious Reason There Are No Mosquitoes At Disney WorldTotal PastMoneyPailShe Was Famous, Now She Works In {State}MoneyPailSerendipity TimesInside Coco Chanel’s Eerily Abandoned Mansion Frozen In TimeSerendipity TimesBetterBe20 Stunning Female AthletesBetterBeDrivepedia20 Of The Most Underrated Vintage CarsDrivepediaPeople TodayNewborn’s Strange Behavior Troubles Mom, 40 Years Later She Finds The Reason Behind ItPeople TodayElite HeraldExperts Discover Girl Born From Two Different SpeciesElite Heraldautooverload.comDeclassified Vietnam War Photos The Public Wasn’t Meant To Seeautooverload.com last_img read more

The church worldwide must be part of the solution.”The delegation of Anglican women from 16 countries around the world urged all churches of the Anglican Communion:1. to continue and build on the positive work already being undertaken towards the eradication of violence against women and girls;2. where silence and inaction persist, to end it. Speak out and begin the work;3. to include men and boys as an integral part of seeking solutions to, and eradicating violence against women and girls;4. to implement Anglican Consultative Council Resolutions 15.07 on gender-based and domestic violence1 and 15.10 on the trafficking of persons;5. to encourage churches at parish level to become places of refuge and safety and participate actively in addressing violence against women and girls; and6. to create awareness and provide training for clergy and the laity to recognize violence and to address it effectively.For the full statement see below. Statement from the Anglican Communion Delegation at the 57th Session of theUnited Nations Commission on the Status of Women, March 2013A Call to Raise our Voices; Faith in ActionLearn to do right; seek justice. Defend the oppressed.Take up the cause of the fatherless; plead the case of the widow.Isaiah 1.17We, the Anglican Communion delegation of women from 16 countries, gathered in New York, 4 to 15 March 2013, to participate in the 57th session of the United Nations Commission on the Status of Women (UN CSW57). The priority theme for UN CSW57 was ‘The Elimination and Prevention of All Forms of Violence against Women and Girls’.As women of faith and representing the diversity of the Anglican family of Churches, we observed the proceedings of UN CSW57 and listened to a wide range of speakers. Where possible we met face to face with our country missions to the UN in order to advocate directly with them on behalf of women and girls in our different regions. We also participated in a full programme of UN and non-governmental side events dedicated to the priority theme. These meetings and side events gave us an opportunity to learn, and to share insights and concerns from our home contexts with government representatives, members of other church and faith traditions and non-governmental organisations, We were also able to share with others the progress we have made in many of our Churches, where leaders have spoken out and championed the work needed to end violence against women and girls and care for survivors, and where resources have been developed to assist our moving forward.We thank God for the progress we have made. However, violence against women and girls continues as a global and often hidden pandemic.Women and girls make up more than half the world’s population but many of them live in the shadow of violence and abuse with up to seven in ten women having undergone physical and/or sexual violence. Violence against women and girls takes on multiple forms – physical, sexual, psychological, social and economic, and includes interpersonal/domestic violence, rape, human trafficking, female genital mutilation and forced prostitution. It is a proven fact that violence against women and girls adversely impacts all of society. Violence against women and girls is a cause and consequence of gender inequality and gender injustice, compounded by numerous forms of discrimination.The Church worldwide must be part of the solution. We therefore urge all the Churches of the Anglican Communion:1. to continue and build on the positive work already being undertaken towards the eradication of violence against women and girls2. where silence and inaction persist, to end it. Speak out and begin the work.3. to include men and boys as an integral part of seeking solutions to, and eradicating violence against women and girls4. to implement Anglican Consultative Council Resolutions 15.07 on gender-based and domestic violence1 and 15.10 on the trafficking of persons25. to encourage churches at parish level to become places of refuge and safety and participate actively in addressing violence against women and girls6. to create awareness and provide training for clergy and the laity to recognize violence and to address it effectively.We draw attention to existing resources around the Anglican Communion to facilitate and empower churches in their work towards eradicating violence against women and girls. We affirm that all people are made in the image of God and that violence against women and girls mars God’s creation. We also affirm that Scripture brings the message of freedom, justice and love.We call our Churches to recover their prophetic voice in speaking out against the gross injustice of violence against women and girls.We challenge our Churches to become agents of justice, peace and reconciliation. Reconciliation must be preceded by transformation and accountability. As the Archbishop of Canterbury, the Most Rev. Justin Welby, recently reflected: ‘There is a challenge to active cooperation with the life of God in our lives now. We live and we serve. The recognition by the Samaritan of the other as his neighbor leads to action, not mere existence. He becomes a herald of reconciliation.’We are deeply grateful to the Anglican Communion Office at the UN for facilitating and supporting the Anglican presence at UN CSW57, and to The Episcopal Church for offering us space and a warm welcome within the Episcopal Church Center. We also extend heartfelt thanks to the many volunteers who so generously gave of their time to extend to us hospitality and care. We enjoyed and benefited considerably from the fellowship of other Anglican and Episcopal women and men present in New York for events surrounding UN CSW57, and sincerely appreciated our interaction with Ecumenical Women, an international coalition of churches and ecumenical organizations which have status with the Economic & Social Council (ECOSOC) at the United Nations.We commit ourselves to promoting the Five Marks of Mission, and in particular to seeking to transform unjust structures of society, challenging violence of every kind and pursuing peace and reconciliation. We pray for God’s grace and guidance as we strive to participate in God’s transforming mission in the world.____________________1 www.anglicancommunion.org/communion/acc/meetings/acc15/resolutions.cfm#s72 www.anglicancommunion.org/communion/acc/meetings/acc15/resolutions.cfm#s10 Submit a Press Release Featured Jobs & Calls Submit an Event Listing Associate Rector for Family Ministries Anchorage, AK Rector Smithfield, NC Rector Knoxville, TN Join the Episcopal Diocese of Texas in Celebrating the Pauli Murray Feast Online Worship Service June 27 Curate (Associate & Priest-in-Charge) Traverse City, MI An Evening with Presiding Bishop Curry and Iconographer Kelly Latimore Episcopal Migration Ministries via Zoom June 23 @ 6 p.m. ET Associate Rector Columbus, GA Seminary of the Southwest announces appointment of two new full time faculty members Seminary of the Southwest By ACNS staffPosted Mar 25, 2013 Bishop Diocesan Springfield, IL Submit a Job Listing Course Director Jerusalem, Israel Rector (FT or PT) Indian River, MI Rector Washington, DC Ya no son extranjeros: Un diálogo acerca de inmigración Una conversación de Zoom June 22 @ 7 p.m. ET Rector/Priest in Charge (PT) Lisbon, ME Inaugural Diocesan Feast Day Celebrating Juneteenth San Francisco, CA (and livestream) June 19 @ 2 p.m. PT Assistant/Associate Rector Morristown, NJ Virtual Celebration of the Jerusalem Princess Basma Center Zoom Conversation June 19 @ 12 p.m. ET Rector Hopkinsville, KY AddThis Sharing ButtonsShare to PrintFriendlyPrintFriendlyShare to FacebookFacebookShare to TwitterTwitterShare to EmailEmailShare to MoreAddThis Provide clergy, laity training to prevent violence, say Anglican women Men and boys essential in ending violence against women and girls Rector and Chaplain Eugene, OR Family Ministry Coordinator Baton Rouge, LA Priest Associate or Director of Adult Ministries Greenville, SC Cathedral Dean Boise, ID Associate Priest for Pastoral Care New York, NY Assistant/Associate Priest Scottsdale, AZ The Church Pension Fund Invests $20 Million in Impact Investment Fund Designed to Preserve Workforce Housing Communities Nationwide Church Pension Group Rector Martinsville, VA Rector Bath, NC Missioner for Disaster Resilience Sacramento, CA Rector Albany, NY Rector Belleville, IL Canon for Family Ministry Jackson, MS last_img read more

It has been reported that Ireland’s tax residency laws were a major bone of contention for McManus as it limited the amount of time he could spend here to organise the Pro-Am.Sign up for the weekly Limerick Post newsletter Sign Up The star-studded spectacular, which was due to tee off in Limerick in 2015, is now unlikely to go ahead.

Rising Interest Rates to Help MSR Holders

first_img The Best Markets For Residential Property Investors 2 days ago Governmental Measures Target Expanded Access to Affordable Housing 2 days ago Governmental Measures Target Expanded Access to Affordable Housing 2 days ago Demand Propels Home Prices Upward 2 days ago Servicers Navigate the Post-Pandemic World 2 days ago Subscribe Data Provider Black Knight to Acquire Top of Mind 2 days ago  Print This Post Non-mortgage banking companies in the U.S. that hold  interest-rate-sensitive mortgage servicing rights (MSR) will soon get a “generous increase” in their capital positions thanks to a recent rise in interest rates, according to a report recently released by Moody’s Investors Service.The report said the rise in the 10-year Treasury yield, which increased to approximately 2.55 percent to year end from 1.65 percent  as of Q3 will result in mortgage companies reporting significant write-ups in their fair value MSRs for the fourth quarter of 2016. Fourth quarter earnings of US banks indicate a significant reversal of MSR fair value declines observed during the first nine months of 2016. Moody’s expects significant MSR write-ups for some of the six public non-bank mortgage companies Moody’s rates, reversing the declines in equity they incurred because of the MSR deterioration.”The prolonged low interest rate environment has led to significant declines in MSRs, eroding the capital and profitability of US non-bank mortgage companies that hold MSRs, but relief is on the way,” Gene Berman, Moody’s AVP-Analyst said.Of the six public mortgage companies Moody’s rates, Nationstar Mortgage Holdings, Inc. (B2 stable) and Walter Investment Management Corp. (Caa1 negative) should benefit the most from interest rate increases. Both Nationstar and Walter experienced large material reductions of MSRs at 10 percent and 23 percent of fair value of their MSRs during the first nine months of 2016, owing to the significant decline in interest rates. Assuming the MSR reductions are reversed, the capital levels of Nationstar would both increase by 1.7 percent (TCE to TMA), or a respective increase of 20 percent and 170 percent in percentage terms.

Subhash Reddy and MR Shah said.The contention of the appellant in this case was that as per Section 20 of the Hindu Adoptions & Maintenance Act, 1956, a person has an obligation to maintain his daughter, who is unmarried, extends till she is married. The appellant, when she was a minor, had filed an application was filed under Section 125 Cr.P.C. before Judicial Magistrate First Class, Rewari. The Magistrate disposed the application limiting the claim of the appellant to claim maintenance till she attains majority. This order was upheld by the High Court also. The issue considered by the Apex Court bench was whether a Hindu unmarried daughter is entitled to claim maintenance from her father under Section 125 Cr.P.C. only till she attains majority or she can claim maintenance till she remains unmarried.? The contention of the appellant was that, even if she is not suffering from any physical or mental abnormality or injury, by virtue of Section 20 of Act, 1956, she is entitled to claim maintenance till she is unmarried. The appellant relied on a decision in Jagdish Jugtawat Vs. Manju Lata (2002) 5 SCC 422.The court observed that the decision in Jagdish Jugtawat (supra) cannot be read to laying down the ratio that in proceedings under Section 125 Cr.P.C. filed by the daughter against her father, she is entitled to maintenance relying on the liability of the father to maintain her unmarried daughter as contained in Section 20(3) of the Act, 1956. Referring to Section 20(3) of the Act, the bench observed:Section 20(3) of Hindu Adoptions and Maintenance Act, 1956 is nothing but recognition of principles of Hindu Law regarding maintenance of children and aged parents. Section 20(3) now makes it statutory obligation of a Hindu to maintain his or her daughter, who is unmarried and is unable to maintain herself out of her own earnings or other property. Section 20 of Hindu Adoptions and Maintenance Act, 1956 cast a statutory obligation on a Hindu to maintain his daughter who is unmarried and unable to maintain herself out of her own earnings or other property. As noted above, Hindu Law prior to enactment of Act, 1956 always obliged a Hindu to maintain unmarried daughter, who is unable to maintain herself. The obligation, which is cast on the father to maintain his unmarried daughter, can be enforced by her against her father, if she is unable to maintain herself by enforcing her right under Section 20.The provision of Section 20 of Act, 1956 cast clear statutory obligation on a Hindu to maintain his unmarried daughter who is unable to maintain herself. The right of unmarried daughter under Section 20 to claim maintenance from her father when she is unable to maintain herself is absolute and the right given to unmarried daughter under Section 20 is right granted under personal law, which can very well be enforced by her against her father. The judgment of this Court in Jagdish Jugtawat (supra) laid down that Section 20(3) of Act, 1956 recognised the right of a minor girl to claim maintenance after she attains majority till her marriage from her father. Unmarried daughter is clearly entitled for maintenance from her father till she is married even though she has become major, which is a statutory right recognised by Section 20(3) and can be enforced by unmarried daughter in accordance with law.The bench also referred to Noor Saba Khatoon Vs. Mohd. Quasim, (1997) 6 SCC 233 and observed that effect of a beneficial legislation like Section 125 Cr.P.C. cannot be allowed to be defeated except through clear provisions of a statute. The Court observed that, where the Family Court has jurisdiction to decide a case under Section 125 Cr.P.C. as well as the suit under Section 20 of Act, 1956, it can exercise jurisdiction under both the Acts and in an appropriate case can grant maintenance to unmarried daughter even though she has become major enforcing her right under Section 20 of Act, so as to avoid multiplicity of proceedings. But taking note of the fact that instant application was filed before the Magistrate invoking Section 125 CrPC, the Court said:The purpose and object of Section 125 Cr.P.C. as noted above is to provide immediate relief to applicant in a summary proceedings, whereas right under Section 20 read with Section 3(b) of Act, 1956 contains larger right, which needs determination by a Civil Court, hence for the larger claims as enshrined under Section 20, the proceedings need to be initiated under Section 20 of the Act and the legislature never contemplated to burden the Magistrate while exercising jurisdiction under Section 125 Cr.P.C. to determine the claims contemplated by Act, 1956.While dismissing the appeal, the bench gave liberty to the appellant to take recourse to Section 20(3) of the Act, if so advised, for claiming any maintenance against her father.Case name: ABHILASHA vs. PARKASH Case no.: CRIMINAL APPEAL NO. 615 of 2020Coram: Justices Ashok Bhushan, R.
