La vivienda es un derecho

first_imgMientras el mercado de valores y las ganancias se disparan, también lo hace el costo de la vivienda en EUA. Se ha producido una transformación en las principales ciudades (San Francisco, Filadelfia, Washington, DC y Nueva York son solo algunos ejemplos) ya que las viviendas de alquiler a precios razonables se demuelen o se renuevan para proporcionar cooperativas de lujo y condominios para los nuevos ricos y/o los ricos establecidos que se mudan desde los suburbios o disfrutan de residencias tanto en la ciudad como en el campo.La elección de un presidente cuya fortuna personal proviene de bienes inmuebles, aunque dice que se preocupa por las/os trabajadores, solo ha acelerado el proceso.Las organizaciones de inquilinos luchan contra una marea de riqueza que amenaza con absorberlas.Y la riqueza crece tanto como la pobreza. Pero no porque las/os pobres sean “demasiado vagos para trabajar”. Todo lo contrario. Según la Coalición Nacional para las Personas sin Hogar, en el 2009, hasta el 44 por ciento de las personas sin hogar tenían trabajo, pero el salario era tan bajo que no podían costear ni siquiera las viviendas más baratas. Desde entonces, solo ha empeorado.Ese mismo año, la Coalición Nacional de Vivienda de Bajos Ingresos calculó que un trabajador/a con salario mínimo “tendría que trabajar 87 horas cada semana para pagar un apartamento de dos habitaciones al 30 por ciento de sus ingresos, que es la definición federal de vivienda asequible”.¡Trabajar 87 horas cada semana! Eso es más que DOS VECES la semana de 40 horas, que una vez fuera el estándar. ¿Alguien recuerda cómo era trabajar ocho horas, dormir ocho horas, vivir una vida durante ocho horas y ser capaz de disfrutar los fines de semana?Para trabajar 87 horas a la semana, hay que trabajar 16 horas cada día de la semana, lo que significa dormir cinco horas, tener tres horas para viajar hacia y desde su trabajo y comer algo sobre la marcha, luego trabajar esas siete horas adicionales el sábado – y colapsar el domingo. A menos que se tenga que trabajar en ese momento, lo cual es cada vez más probable, especialmente en los trabajos de venta minorista y de servicio de alimentos con salarios bajos.No es de extrañar que la falta de vivienda esté creciendo, junto con la riqueza obscena en el tope.¿Qué pasa con las/os desplazados? Una encuesta en 2017 mostró que en una noche cualquiera en este país rico, más de medio millón de personas, 544.000, no tenían hogar, no tenían dónde dormir sino debajo de puentes, en callejones o en refugios atestados de personas sin hogar.Muchas mujeres con niñas/os no tienen hogar, algunas para escapar del abuso. También lo son las personas con problemas físicos, mentales y emocionales. Y como estar sin hogar solo agrava estas afecciones, muchas terminan en las salas de emergencia de los hospitales.Hace un siglo y medio, el desarrollo del capitalismo y el triunfo de la fabricación a gran escala sobre las industrias caseras en gran parte de Europa y América del Norte aumentaron enormemente la productividad del trabajo. Hoy en día, un trabajador/a puede producir cien veces más, ya sea textiles, acero o casas, con la nueva tecnología. Una casa de cuatro habitaciones parcialmente prefabricada y bien diseñada hoy se puede ensamblar y terminar en un mes.Esa es la ventaja del desarrollo capitalista. Pero la desventaja de un sistema económico basado en las ganancias y el trabajo explotado es la degradación total de la vida del trabajador/a.Frederick Engels, el colaborador más cercano de Karl Marx, escribió en 1872 sobre cómo la burguesía resuelve la cuestión de la vivienda:“Los criaderos de enfermedades, los infames hoyos y sótanos en los que el modo de producción capitalista confina a nuestras/os trabajadores noche tras noche, no son abolidos; simplemente se desplazan a otra parte! … Mientras el modo de producción capitalista continúe existiendo, es una locura esperar una solución aislada de la cuestión de la vivienda o de cualquier otra cuestión social que afecte el destino de las/os trabajadores.“La solución está en la abolición del modo de producción capitalista y la apropiación de todos los medios de vida y trabajo por parte de la clase trabajadora misma”.Amén, camarada Freddy.FacebookTwitterWhatsAppEmailPrintMoreShare thisFacebookTwitterWhatsAppEmailPrintMoreShare thislast_img read more

Horned Frogs crumble in second half of Big 12 Championship game against No. 3 Oklahoma

first_imgLinkedin Twitter Garrett Podell Facebook The Horned Frogs didn’t do themselves any favors at the start, as running back Kyle Hicks fumbled the first offensive snap, and Sooner linebacker Caleb Kelly returned it 18-yards for an early 10-0 lead. Heisman Trophy front-runner Baker Mayfield found the back of the end zone on a five-yard, play-action pass to tight end Mark Andrews to make it 17-0.However, the Horned Frogs would fight back in the second quarter, scoring 17 points of their own on a couple of jaw-dropping catches from wide receivers Jalen Reagor and John Diarse. The scoring strike shrunk the Oklahoma lead to ten, 17-7, with 14:07 left in the first half. Reagor’s 29-yard touchdown reception was his  seventh of the season, tying him for the most in the nation by a true freshman. Facebook “Against a team like that, especially offense you can’t make mistakes,” TCU head coach Gary Patterson said. “We did a great job of fighting back in the first half to get into a one-score game and you can’t give up big plays. Two plays is basically the second half and offensively we’ve got to do a better job in the second half. They turned up the volume and we did not.” Garrett Podell Garrett Podell World Oceans Day shines spotlight on marine plastic pollution ReddIt Diarse finished with five receptions for 66 yards, including the 12-yard touchdown, to give him at least one catch in 26 of the last 27 games.However, the Sooners responded. Eight plays later, Mayfield and the Sooners ran the exact same play-action pass play that resulted in Oklahoma’s first offensive touchdown, and it resulted in Oklahoma’s second offensive touchdown on a six-yard connection to Andrews that pushed the Sooner’s lead back up to 10, 24-14.That connection gave TCU 3:45 to march down field to get some points. With one timeout remaining and a first down at the Sooner 10, Hill made an ill-fated decision to tuck and run with the football, which resulted in a 1-yard gain to the nine, forcing the Horned Frogs to use their final timeout. Patterson, traditionally conservative when it comes to clock management, opted not to attempt a throw to the end zone with seven seconds left in the half. TCU kicker Cole Bunce hit a 26-yard field right up the middle to send the Horned Frogs into the locker room down just a touchdown, 24-17. Garrett Podell TCU couldn’t carry over its second quarter momentum into the third quarter. Hill and the TCU offense went three and out and were stopped a yard short of a first down on its first two offensive possessions. Mayfield needed just three plays on two possessions to rack up a couple more passing touchdowns, a 55-yarder to Mykel Jones and a 52-yarder to Marquise Brown. With 10:41 left in the third quarter, the Sooners extended its lead to 21, 38-17.After a Sooner punt, TCU began a short-lived drive on their own four. On the very next play, Hill attempted to fit a jump ball down the left sideline to Diarse into double coverage, which resulted in an interception to Sooner defensive back Will Johnson. The turnover resulted in a 40-yard field goal from Seibert, which increased the Oklahoma advantage to 24, 41-17.TCU quarterback Kenny Hill runs past an Oklahoma defender. Photo by Cristian ArguetaSotoUp NextThe Sooners, led by the Big 12 Championship Game’s Most Outstanding Player Mayfield, effectively clinched a spot in the College Football Playoffs.TCU, now 10-3, is still in the running to play in one of the New Year’s Six bowl games like the Fiesta, Peach or Cotton Bowl, but in order to do that, they’ll need to finish in the top 12 of tomorrow’s final regular season CFP poll. If they fall outside the top 12, they’ll likely find themselves in San Antonio for the second time in three years at the Alamo Bowl, as the Big 12’s second-place team. Boschini talks: construction, parking, tuition, enrollment, DEI, a student trustee Boschini: ‘None of the talk matters because Jamie Dixon is staying’ “As far as the catch goes, all the credit goes to Kenny and the O-line for giving him time and allowing him to put the ball in the right place and left me to do my job and catch it,” Diarse said. “I just remember, you know, falling with it and having possession. I immediately ran to the sideline and told Coach, that’s a catch.” Men’s basketball scores season-low in NIT semifinals loss to Texas + posts “You can throw to the end zone, but if you’re not careful you’re going to run out and end up with zero,” Patterson said. “We did know we were going to start with the ball the second half, so I was trying to get two possessions. You can get a field goal and then you’re within one score and you get the ball back and go down the field and here you go, but it obviously it didn’t turn out that way.” “Very proud of this football team,” Patterson said. “With the seniors, you got a group that’s 10-3 and fought themselves into this ball game. Preseason we were picked sixth, and really have overcome a lot of things, and we probably had one of the tougher [schedules]. So to get back to this point was great.” The College of Science and Engineering Dean, Phil Hartman, retires after 40 consecutive years TCU places second in the National Student Advertising Competition, the highest in school history ReddIt Previous articleBig 12 Championship Game epitomizes Kenny Hill’s ‘up and down’ TCU careerNext articleQ&A with the director of ‘The Shape of Water’ Garrett Podell RELATED ARTICLESMORE FROM AUTHOR The Sooners appeared to be on their way to another touchdown as they had a second and two at the TCU 21. However, TCU defensive end Ben Banogu strip-sacked Mayfield, but Oklahoma right guard Dru Samia fell on top of the loose ball. The sack by Ben Banogu gave TCU at least one sack in 54 of its last 56 games. On third and six, Oklahoma threw to the end zone, but Andrews dropped the ball. Sooner kicker Austin Seibert then hooked just his third field goal of the season from 43 yards out, a significant shift in momentum.The Horned Frogs would capitalize nine plays later on a play from wide receiver Diarse. Hill threw a jump ball to the senior on a fade route, as he has many times this season, and Diarse snatched the ball out the air with one hand to tuck it into his gut right as his knee hit the ground. After referees initially ruled the play an incompletion, they awarded the Horned Frogs a touchdown on the 12-yard connection, which cut the Sooner lead to three, 17-14. printWhile the College Football Playoffs were likely off the table for TCU Saturday at AT&T Stadium, they were given the opportunity to win the Big 12 Conference Championship. However, Oklahoma made the most of the opportunity instead shutting down TCU, 41-17. Listen: The Podell and Pickell Show with L.J. Collier “As far as Jalen Reagor, that’s what we expect,” Diarse said. “Freshman, sophomore, junior, senior, it’s your time to make a play you make a play.

Natural Disaster Meets Digital Disruption

first_imgHome / Daily Dose / Natural Disaster Meets Digital Disruption Data Provider Black Knight to Acquire Top of Mind 2 days ago The Best Markets For Residential Property Investors 2 days ago in Daily Dose, Featured, Investment, News, Print Features, Technology The Week Ahead: Nearing the Forbearance Exit 2 days ago Editor’s note: This feature originally appeared in the October issue of DS NewsLike many of you, I’ve been in the industry long enough to have survived the financial crisis and then some, so when I hear familiar phrases like “workflow automation” or “operational readiness,” it’s not the first time. However, amidst what may seem like a lull in financial recovery, our industry is absolutely on the cusp of digital disruption. We are also heading toward the third consecutive year for historic volumes of natural disaster.The intersection of these two “Ds”—disasters and digital disruption—creates the perfect springboard for improving response times and service through the automation of disaster recovery processes. Moreover, a digital disruption can be a catalyst for realizing similar benefits throughout your organization. The overall bottom-line opportunity can help offset shrinking resources and margins as well as provide improved transparency for your borrowers, industry partners, and investors alike.Creating an Opportunity Out of Disaster Recovery Our industry needs to understand and embrace disaster assistance, despite the disturbance, volatility, and resource constraints involved. Whatever the disaster, it is an opportunity to strategically service the borrower in ways that create long-standing customer loyalty and preference.There shouldn’t be a difference in how borrowers are treated at various stages of the loan lifecycle, especially during times of unforeseen disaster. When approaching or rethinking your disaster-recovery strategy, consider implementing technologies that can seamlessly take the customer from onboarding through each phase of servicing, including loss mitigation—with no gaps. Such capabilities are valuable for servicing in general but even more important when evaluating an uncontrollable event such as a natural disaster.Imagine taking a proactive approach that will move your organization away from not only reactively responding to the onset of borrower calls but through numerous changing programs and requirements for disaster-recovery assistance. Tapping automation that goes beyond basic rules, puts control and flexibility in the servicer’s hands, simultaneously supports change and urgency, and offers management transparency is not an impossibility. The opportunity exists and is available today.Minimize Risk While Managing Through DisasterAs any mortgage servicer will attest, managing through natural disaster events can wreak havoc on the cost of servicing. This is why today’s technology needs to help reduce risk for servicers, as well as their borrowers and investors, when a disaster occurs. The goal is to minimize expenses and add controls during events that can quickly go in the other direction if planning and proactive strategies are not in place.When planning your strategy, it’s important to look at all of the pieces of the process that need to come together when disaster strikes. Obviously, the phone rings first, but borrower support can last for many months as related issues, including delinquencies, accumulate. During this time, borrowers and investors are both looking for immediate and continuous communication from the servicer, who must also strive to reduce errors and response times.Events, timelines, program qualifications, and collateral damage can all come into play. By implementing a sophisticated workflow application, servicers are able to track, manage, and cure disaster related activities, improving scalability, maximizing resource utilization, and minimizing risk during a time of duress for all parties.Bringing Industry Participants TogetherAs tragic and tumultuous as disasters are, in general, they can also bring people together. In the case of mortgage servicers, putting the borrower and investor first in line can bring all parties closer to solving the shared challenges tied to disaster. Through automated workflow technologies, servicers are able to improve relationships with customers by providing quick, efficient, and flexible service. Investors want accurate and timely reporting, which can be accomplished through a similar approach.By leveraging emerging technologies that move beyond basic rule management, servicers can also maximize their utilization of data and AI, coupled with eligibility modeling and flexible reporting. This lift is immediately transferred to borrower and investor inquiries. The result is a combination of automation powered by communication, coupled with problem-solving capabilities that have the capacity to speed up the process and mitigate the overall potential on the bottom line.While there are any number of automated workflow technologies available to servicers, the best are those which have evolved with our industry through the entire post-financial crisis era. These solutions have migrated into increasingly sophisticated applications that leverage a complete suite of investor programs targeted to support loss mitigation, including disaster recovery strategies.A high-quality workflow technology provider should also be able to assist servicers in automating their strategic approaches to process administration, change management, risk control, and cost containment. Whether your team is dealing with borrower mobile communications managing insurance remittance for property repair, or the complex network of conflicting timelines, there are solutions on the market that are already configured to help address your needs. Partnering with such a provider can help you stay on the forefront of digital disruption with technology that derives flexibility from sophisticated data streams and AI, delivered through a user-friendly application that is mobile-ready.Bringing data disruption to disaster recovery reflects where our entire industry is headed. With emerging technology, we no longer have to treat event-based obstacles as a one-off, exception-handling juggling exercise. Embracing technology actually helps you put the customer at the forefront of your operation as well. Sophisticated automated workflow applications can bring all of these aspects to your organization in fairly short order.Workflow has changed, like everything else in our industry, so take your time and find a partner that understands both the value of your customer and the importance of your corporate culture. Simply checking boxes and implementing basic industry rules will not get the job done in today’s market. Mortgage servicers need innovative partners that understand the difference between business and success.The bottom line is that natural disasters do not need to create workflow disasters—nor should they. They offer a prime opportunity for servicers to enhance customer service and take a giant technological leap forward. The key is to capitalize on technologies emerging out of digital disruption to manage disaster recovery and win customer allegiance at the same time. By letting automation handle the ups and downs of disaster mitigation, as well as its complexities, servicers can create eternal customer loyalty.

December 20, 2019 2,465 Views About Author: Seth Welborn Mortgage credit performance, with a focus on mortgage default rates, was one of the most popular topics among mortgage professionals in 2019, according to CoreLogic’s year-end lookback. According to CoreLogic, the most read blog article for 2019 discussed decreases in serious delinquency rates and the differences in delinquencies for conventional, FHA and VA loans. The January article, “Mortgage Delinquency Rates for All Loan Types Continue to Fall,” identified year-over-year mortgage delinquency rate declines between 2018 and 2017, an ongoing trend that continued into 2019.  For example, the most recent CoreLogic Mortgage Monitor Report revealed that the overall delinquency rate was 3.8% nationwide in September, down from 4.4% a year earlier and the lowest for the month of September in more than 20 years.While overall delinquency fell, serious delinquency rates have begun to flatten out at low levels. The serious delinquency rate, defined as 90 days or more past due, including loans in foreclosure, was 1.3% in September 2019, down from 1.5% in September 2018. Likewise, the share of mortgages that were 30 to 59 days past due—considered early-stage delinquencies—was 1.9% in September 2019, down from 2.2% in September 2018. The share of mortgages 60 to 89 days past due was 0.6% in September 2019, down from 0.7% in September 2018.Another popular topic in 2019 was the Qualified Mortgage GSE Patch, along with the nature of non-qualified mortgages. Earlier this year, the CFPB announced that it would be focusing its attention on the Patch, on loans that are eligible to be purchased or guaranteed by either Fannie Mae or Freddie Mac. While proponents of the QM Patch say that its expiry in 2021 would make homes less affordable, especially in the lower-tier housing market, an article in Forbes points out that if the Trump administration wants to improve housing affordability, “it needs to expand the role of private markets through increased competition.”CoreLogic’s complete list of the most popular topics this year can be found here.

In exercise of the powers conferred by Rule 7A of the Bombay High Court Public Interest Litigation Rules, 2010, we call upon the petitioner to put in a security amount of Rs.1 Lakh within a week from date. If such security amount is put in, the writ Petition shall be listed on the following working day for further consideration. In the event, however, the security amount is not put in, the writ petition shall stand dismissed without reference to the Bench.”The petitioner had initially approached the apex court in the matter and the case had come up for hearing before the bench of Justice DY Chandrachud and Justice Indira Banerjee. The bench had asked the petitioner at the outset-“What kind of a writ petition have you filed? Don’t you have something called the High Court of Judicature of Bombay?”When the petitioner responded saying Epidemic Diseases Act is a Central Act, Justice Chandrachud had said-“We have the power, but the High Courts also do have the power to consider the validity of any law or to strike it down. Since the High Courts also have the power, it is desirable to go to the High Court!”, Both the judges noted that they have struck down laws sitting as High Court judges and observed that an efficacious and alternative remedy exists before the High Court under Article 226. Thus, the Supreme Court granted the petitioner liberty to withdraw the plea. Thereafter the petitioner approached the High Court.Click Here To Download Order[Read Order]Next Storylast_img read more
