The plan, or lack there of, is generating much opposition in the housing industry.”[The National Association of Realtors] supports the goals of simplification and structural improvements for the tax system, and individual tax rates should be as low as possible while still providing for a balanced fiscal policy,” Iona Harrison, Chair of NAR’s Federal Taxation Committee said in a statement during a Senate Finance Committee hearing. “We simply believe that to achieve these goals, Congress should commit first to doing no harm to the common interest that homeownership provides.”NAHB’s Howard, however, sees the plan as an opportunity to embrace creative alternatives and said that members of the tax code writing House of Representatives Ways and Means and Senate Finance committees have expressed interest in creating a homeownership credit.

Pacific Basin expects $198 million in asset impairments

first_imgHong Kong-based dry bulk shipping company Pacific Basin revealed a one-off non-cash impairment charge of $198 million on the group’s Handysize core fleet. Pacific Basin said it has recently secured $63.6 million in new long-term credit facilities secured against five of its previously unmortgaged vessels, of which $33.5 million was undrawn as of June 30, 2020. “The expected impairment will not impact the operations or operating cashflows of the group, which will continue to benefit from a robust balance sheet,” Pacific Basin said. This weakness in demand has coincided with continued dry bulk fleet growth and limited scrapping during 2019 and the first half of 2020. However, the group is expected to record positive EBITDA for the period in the range of $75-90 million as compared to $101 million for the same period of 2019. Pacific Basin said the impairment resulted from the need to review the carrying value of its fleet amid the uncertain market outlook. “As at 30 June 2020, the estimated cash balances and borrowings of the group are approximately $316 million and $1,021 million respectively and the net borrowings ratio is approximately 41% against the net book value of owned vessels taking into account the expected impairment.” Image courtesy: Pacific Basin The dry bulk shipping market has been facing demand challenges as a result of the COVID-19 pandemic. The demand contraction comes on the back of an already challenged dry bulk market since early 2019. The impairment charge relates to primarily its smaller and older Handysize vessels and will be reflected in its unaudited consolidated results for the first half of 2020. Including this impairment, Pacific Basin expected to record a net loss in the range of $212 million to $227 million as compared to the $8 million net profit recorded for the H1 of 2019. last_img read more

Fear factor fuels Lambert

first_img Press Association Aston Villa boss Paul Lambert admits fear is a big spur in making him a better manager. “Aye, train without goalkeepers,” Lambert joked when asked if Villa could do anything differently to end their goalless run. “We do finishing and crossing every day. You can’t put everything on Christian (Benteke)’s doorstep as he’s just coming back and he’s getting better every game. “There are goalscorers here. We will score. We have to get the creativity firing, but we’re doing everything we can. “Once a player is over the line they are the ones who play the game.” Monday’s 2-0 defeat at QPR put more pressure on Lambert from fans but he insisted he relishes the challenge. He said: “I know what the game is like. I have never felt comfortable as a manager. I always live in fear. That’s what I like. I was like that as a player. It’s professionalism, nothing other than your own professionalism. “I’ve been in this position loads of times, even as a player. But you can’t wilt under the pressure. “I’m not one to sit on my backside doing nothing. It’s not about monetary things or anything like that, I just want to do my best for this football club. I want to drive it on. I’m not one for sitting comfortably, never. “I enjoy living on the edge. There are two ways of going about it – you can come in fighting or wilt and I’m never going to do that. I was never like that as a player so I won’t do that now. I love being here and want to do my best. I know the expectancy level of it. “If you live under fear you perform better. Criticism is part of the game, if you’re not getting criticised or praised then people are not talking about you so you may as well get one of the two.” Villa have not scored in 531 minutes since Gabriel Agbonlahor’s winner in their 1-0 victory at Liverpool in September. They are the lowest scorers in all four divisions but Lambert is adamant the goals will come. The Scot has come under fire after Villa’s run of five straight defeats without scoring ahead of the visit of Tottenham on Sunday. Lambert signed a new four-year contract in September but has not seen his side win in the Barclays Premier League since. last_img read more

Badgers have no answer for No. 1 Gophers in sweep

first_imgAmid thundering chants of “Let’s go red” from a sell-out crowd in the Kohl Center Saturday night, the Wisconsin women’s hockey team hit the ice to face top-ranked Minnesota in the second game of the weekend series. Despite the Badgers’ high energy and home-ice advantage, the Gophers proved why they are the No.1 team in the country, trouncing Wisconsin 4-0.The game was exciting from the moment it began, with the Badgers emerging from behind a layer of fog and stepping into an arena filled with flashing lights, blaring music, and a charged crowd of 13,573 fans.“It was a pretty big adrenaline rush for our team,” goaltender Alex Rigsby said of the atmosphere. “We’ve never had the fog machine before, and it was exciting to come out [and] have the huge attendance already. It was loud in there, and we were really lucky to have the support that we do.”From the second the puck was dropped both teams were off, setting a high pace that seemed to pressure the other to not ease up. The two looked evenly matched throughout the first period, Minnesota getting six shots off and Wisconsin taking seven, with quality scoring chances on each side of the ice.“It’s one of those games where the team that scores first probably has a good chance of winning,” Wisconsin head coach Mark Johnson said.And he was right, as halfway through the second period, Minnesota forward Kelly Terry snuck past a Wisconsin defender and, just to the right of Rigsby, hit the top shelf on a laser of a wrist shot, earning Minnesota the crucial first goal of the game and what proved to be the only goal that mattered.From that point on, the Gophers’ momentum started building and, though Wisconsin put up a fight, Minnesota’s bid for the sweep could not be thwarted.The second goal came with just more than two minutes left in the same period, when a Minnesota defender took a shot from the top of the circle. Rigsby blocked this initial shot, but when she allowed a rebound, the Gophers’ leading scorers pounced. Minnesota’s Rachael Bona found the loose puck along the right endline and slipped a pass behind Rigsby through the crease to a wide open Hannah Brandt, both of whom lead the Gophers with 50 points apiece. Brandt had a wide open net to shoot at with Rigsby out of position and tucked the puck inside the left post for a two-goal lead.The last two goals came at the beginning and middle of the third period, both consisting of a Gopher taking the puck behind the Wisconsin net, only to throw a pass behind them to a teammate waiting out in front.Despite a lopsided score, the WCHA’s top two teams looked evenly matched throughout the majority of the game. Minnesota totaled 27 shots and Wisconsin racked up 24, both teams kept penalties to a minimum and there was just as much playing time in one end as there was in the other.With the loss, the Badgers now haven’t seen a win against Minnesota since the 2011-2012 season, marking 10 straight losses, the longest losing streak for Wisconsin against their border rival in the all-time series.Rigsby explained that at this point UW is just trying to keep looking forward.“I’m tired of losing to this team,” Rigsby said. “We’re definitely going to face them again, no doubt, so hopefully we’ll be able to capitalize on our opportunities, refocus and make sure we do the little things right to succeed.”Badgers fall short FridayThe top two teams in the nation came together Friday night at LaBahn Arena in what was one of the fastest-paced games of the season. The Wisconsin women’s hockey team hosted Minnesota in the first of the two-game series, fighting tooth and nail until the very last minute against the No. 1 ranked Golden Gophers, but eventually walking away with a tough 3-2 loss.The two rivals showed their love for one another by starting off the Valentine’s Day game with four penalties in the first period. Wisconsin ran a successful penalty kill early on while senior defense Natalie Berg served two minutes in the box for hooking, though it was far from easy. Minnesota swarmed the net, consistently putting the pressure on senior goalie Alex Rigsby, who blocked all five shots directed her way while play was five-on-four.Wisconsin head coach Mark Johnson had prepared his Badgers for this situation and anticipated a high pace being set early on by opposing head coach Brad Frost and his Gopher players.“[The Gophers] play at a really high pace, and if you’re going to compete with them you have to play fast and you have to take care of the puck and certainly try not to take too many penalties,” Johnson said. “They’ve got some high-powered forwards that create scoring opportunities and if you don’t defend well you’re going to be left looking a little silly.”Later on in the first period, Minnesota received two penalties back-to-back, giving UW a five-on-three advantage. Right as the first penalty expired, still leaving Wisconsin with a one man advantage, forward Brittany Ammerman put Wisconsin on the scoreboard. Defenseman Courtney Burke started the play, moving the puck over to the top of the right circle to forward Katy Josephs, who fired a shot into a crowd of players in front of Minnesota goaltender Amanda Leveille (21 saves). Ammerman was among those in the heavy traffic and redirected Josephs’ shot into the back of the Minnesota net.“We just had good puck possession so I stayed out there and just found a presence in front of the net,” Ammerman said of her goal. “It was a good momentum-shift for us.”There was still plenty of time to play after Wisconsin’s initial goal and Minnesota was far from yielding to the Badgers. Answering back, the Gophers put up a goal of their own 5 minutes and 44 seconds into the second period, followed by a second one in the beginning of the third at the 3:37 mark to take the 2-1 lead over Wisconsin.But just a few minutes later, looking for an opening to break out of the defensive zone, Wisconsin defenseman Kelly Jaminski pushed the puck up to forward Blayre Turnbull. Turnbull flew down the left side of the ice, and, on approaching the Gophers’ goaltender Leveille, split two Minnesota defenders and tossed the puck over Leveille’s shoulder, into the back of the net, bringing all of LaBahn Arena to its feet.“It’s a good response,” Johnson said of Turnbull’s breakaway goal. “[Minnesota] defends very well, so they get up 2-1 and you know you may not get another goal, but [Turnbull] took it upon herself and had a nice rush and created energy.”But Turnbull’s end-to-end goal still wasn’t enough to discourage the Gophers. A little less than four minutes later Minnesota racked up what turned out to be the game-winning goal on a broken play inside the Badgers’ defensive zone. Gopher defenseman Rachel Ramsey was surrounded by several Badger players upon entering the zone, leaving a wide-open Dani Cameranesi in front of the net. Ramsey promptly fed Cameranesi, who one-timed the pass past Rigsby to give the Gophers the 3-2 lead and the lead for good with 10 minutes and 58 seconds left to play.Wisconsin pulled Rigsby (30 saves) with more than a minute left in the game, but despite several quality chances the Badgers could not reach the back of the net, falling in a heartbreaker on what was senior night for Rigsby and five others, including Jaminski, Natalie Berg, Madison Packer, Ilana Friedman and Stefanie McKeough.“It’s definitely disappointing,” Rigsby said. “I thought our team played really well, but obviously it didn’t end the way we wanted. It’s never fun to come home and lose in your own rink, but all that aside I thought we played really well tonight and we’ll be ready for tomorrow night.”last_img read more

New anti-trafficking law for South Africa

first_imgTraffickers will have to deal with the lawonce South Africa’s new legislation comes into force.In Cape Town in 2011, the Body Shop South Africa and Child Welfare presented over 43 000 signatures to Parliament’sPortfolio Committee for Justice and Constitutional Development. (Images: The Body Shop) MEDIA CONTACTS • Lynn Giles  Eclipse Public Relations  +27 21 555 4282 RELATED ARTICLES • Pupils benefit from couple’s calling • Liliesleaf: keeping the memory alive • ConCourt art tells SA’s story • Cash boost for Baartman memorial • Human rights revisitedWilma den HartighIn a significant move to protect the rights of South Africa’s women and children, Parliament’s justice portfolio committee chairperson Luwellyn Landers announced that the Prevention and Combating of Trafficking in Persons Bill will be passed in April.South Africa is one of the few countries in the world that has achieved the human rights milestone of enacting legislation to fight trafficking.Once the Bill becomes an Act in parliament and is fully operational, it will be one of the most comprehensive laws against human trafficking in the country.All countries – including South Africa – that are signatories to the UN protocol to prevent, suppress and punish trafficking in persons, especially women and children, are encouraged to pass domestic legislation to fulfil their international obligations.The South African Bill, which has been under discussion in Parliament for the past five years, was drafted in response to the UN’s global call for action against trafficking.There are a number of reforms that the Bill will bring into place. It provides for prosecution of people involved in trafficking and also for harsh sentences to be imposed.The intention of the legislation is to prevent and stop trafficking in people, and provide protection and assistance to victims of trafficking.Campaigning to stop traffickingSouth Africa’s decisive action against trafficking is sending out a clear message that the country’s women and children are not for sale.The decision has been welcomed by ECPAT, an international global network of organisations working together to eliminate child prostitution, child pornography and the trafficking of children for sexual purposes; Child Welfare South Africa (CWSA), as well as The Body Shop, a global natural and ethical cosmetics retailer.Together these organisations have been actively involved in an on-going global campaign, spearheaded by The Body Shop, to urge governments to do more to protect the 1.2-million children and young people being trafficked every year for sexual exploitation.Trix Marais, acting national executive director of CWSA, said that the Bill is an important step forward to protect the victims of trafficking. “Trafficking is nothing less than contemporary slavery,” Marais said.She said it is important that the Bill doesn’t only look good on paper. Training is needed to ensure that the legislation is implemented effectively.“We need to know how to the use the Bill so we can enforce it,” she said.The Body Shop group is famous for its campaigns that raise awareness about important social and environmental issues such as violence in the home, HIV and Aids, and renewable energy.Its campaigns have been successful in reaching key decision makers who can bring about change. Now, its drive against trafficking is another success story.The Body Shop South Africa’s campaign manager, Lana-Anne Scheepers, says that the passing of the Bill is a step in the right direction to protect children from trafficking, a crime that has been largely unaddressed.With the legislation in place, trafficking criminals will no longer be able to operate without fear of repercussion.The response to the campaign – both at home and globally – has been unprecedented.In South Africa, the campaign put pressure on the justice portfolio committee to pass the legislation. Last year, CWSA and The Body Shop South Africa led a march to Parliament where they handed over a petition containing 43 000 signatures to lobby the government to approve the Bill.In October last year, the campaign resulted in one of the largest petitions ever to be presented to the UN. All over the world, 7.2-million signatures were collected, calling on governments to take urgent action to stop sex trafficking.The campaign has been so successful that 14 countries across the world have committed to adopt new legislation against trafficking.A lucrative industryHuman trafficking is one of the biggest money-spinners in the organised crime world.According to Corinne Sandenbergh, director of Stop Trafficking of Persons, an organisation that creates awareness and educates the public about the realities of human trafficking, this industry is the third largest international crime, following illegal drugs and arms trafficking.The industry is believed to be worth billions of dollars each year. Driving the trade is the demand for commercial sexual exploitation. According to the UN Office on Drugs and Crime, 79% of all global trafficking is for sexual exploitation.Although the extent of trafficking operations in South Africa is not known, large numbers of people are believed to be trafficked each year, within South Africa and across its borders.Taking action in South AfricaIn a parliamentary monitoring briefing about the Bill, minister of justice and constitutional development Jeff Radebe said the Bill was drafted based on a South African Law Reform Commission investigation, which started in 2003, probing into the causes of trafficking in people.The investigation identified factors such as poverty, war and political instability as some of the main causes of trafficking.In South Africa, children are particularly vulnerable to trafficking and remain relatively unprotected from exploitation for sexual and labour purposes.The high prevalence of HIV and Aids in South Africa is also contributing to the problem as many children live in poverty as a result of being orphaned – only increasing their vulnerability to exploitation. Internal trafficking occurs because of high unemployment and poverty.The new Act will address the shortcomings of existing fragmented legislation, but this does not mean that South Africa has not been able to do anything about trafficking crimes.Until now, South Africa’s judiciary system has relied on other laws such as the Sexual Offences Act, 1957; the Riotous Assemblies Act, 1956; the Immigration Act, 2002; the Basic Conditions of Employment Act, 1997; the Intimidation Act, 1982; the Domestic Violence Act, 1998; the Films and Publications Act, 1996 and the Prevention of Organised Crime Act, 1998. Under the common law, depending on the circumstances of each case, anyone suspected of trafficking can be charged with kidnapping, common assault, assault with intent to do grievous bodily harm, extortion, attempted murder and murder.last_img read more

Pork supplies edging up for 2016

first_imgShare Facebook Twitter Google + LinkedIn Pinterest The pork industry has largely overcome the impacts of the 2014 porcine epidemic diarrhea virus. Pork producers have been disciplined in limiting expansion after record 2014 profits.As a result, pork supplies should be only modestly higher in 2016 and provide prices that cover all costs of production. However, there are some concerns for the longer run as global meat and poultry supplies continue to expand with a weak world income base.The industry is rapidly leaving behind the impacts of the 2014 PED virus. The number of pigs per litter has set new quarterly highs in each of the three quarters so far this year. In the most recent summer quarter, the number of pigs per litter reached an all-time high of 10.39.The PED virus left a deficit in market hogs a year ago, but that deficit will rapidly close by the end of this year. This can be seen in the current count of market hogs compared to year-ago levels. Pigs that were 180 pounds or larger on Sept. 1 were up 10%. While 10% higher is a large increase, it is a reflection of the deficit of market hogs one year ago.The number of market hogs weighing 120 to 179 pounds that will come to market in October and early November was up 8%, but the number of 50-to-119 pound pigs that will come to market from late November to early January was up only 3%. Finally the under-50 pound pigs that will be the foundation of the first quarter 2016 supplies were down modestly.In the U.S. Department of Agriculture’s September Hogs and Pigs report, producers indicated that they had expanded the breeding herd by just 1%. In addition they were going to decrease fall farrowings by 2% and winter farrowings by 1%.Pork supplies are expected to be up 4% in the final quarter of 2015 with a combination of 5% more hogs and 1% lower weights. For 2015, pork supplies are expected to be 7% higher than supplies in 2014. Supplies for 2016 should be about 1% higher than in 2015 with the first three quarters being down one%, unchanged, and up 1%, respectively.Hog prices averaged near $55 per live hundredweight for the third quarter of 2015 and are expected to drop to an average in the higher-$40s in the final quarter. Prices are expected to average near $50 in the winter and then move up seasonally to the mid-$50s in the second and the third quarters of 2016. Prices in the final quarter of 2016 are anticipated to be in the mid-to-higher $40s.For the 2015 calendar year, hog prices are expected to average about $51 on a live weight basis. Current projections for 2016 are for a similar average price. These prices are in sharp contrast to the $76 record high prices of 2014 when PED reduced pork supplies.Costs of production in both 2015 and 2016 are expected to be similar, around $51 per hundredweight. Costs for both years are the same as the projected price, and thus at breakeven. These cost projections include costs for full depreciation and a normal rate of return for all capital and labor. Therefore, break-even means all costs are covered.After the record profits of 2014, there has been concern that the industry would over-expand. At this point that concern has not developed with supply and demand anticipated to be in balance for the coming 12 months. This also serves as a warning to the industry to make sure that further expansion plans remain moderate.There seem to be growing threats in the future for the meats sector. Those include continued expansion of total meat supplies into 2016 and 2017 with rapid expansion of poultry and increased beef supplies. The large drop in finished cattle prices in recent weeks suggest that retail beef prices could begin to drop this fall and provide added competition for pork. In the longer run, beef supplies will continue to expand for multiple years.Potential weakness of meat and poultry exports is also a concern with slowing world economic growth and a strong U.S. dollar.Feed prices will remain low for the next nine months due to strong yields for 2014 and 2015 crops and weakened exports. Animal product producers will want to take advantage of harvest price lows this fall. However, longer-term, managers need to remain aware that low feed prices are not guaranteed if weather should turn more adverse in some important growing areas.last_img read more

By Kacy Mixon, M.S., LMFT[Flickr, The First Couple- Moments of Togetherness by U.S. Embassy New Delhi, CC BY-ND 2.0] Retrieved on September 17, 2015Infidelity is a common problem faced by many couples and is one of the leading causes of divorce [1]. Research shows: “…21% of men and 11% of women will engage in sexual infidelity during their lifetime” [1].  Contexts surrounding  infidelity can vary greatly.  However, consequences to the relationship once infidelity is disclosed tends to be devastating and disruptive.Are Military Couples At-risk?Military couples can be particularly vulnerable to infidelity because of the types of stressors experienced in these relationships [2].  For instance, prolonged separation due to deployment, high incidences of stress-related mental health problems, and a high prevalence of couples who marry young are a few of the reasons that military couples are particularly at-risk for infidelity.How Can Infidelity Impact Your Well-being?[Flickr, Broken air by Angelo Amboldi, CC BY-ND 2.0] Retrieved on September 17, 2015Infidelity is known to connect to a broad range of adverse emotional and behavioral issues [3]. People who have learned that their partner is having an affair are at increased risk for having depression, suicidal thoughts, anxiety, and post-traumatic stress disorder. Especially in times of marital separation and divorce, people who have taken part in an affair are at great risk for depression, suicidal thoughts, and anxiety. Domestic violence is also a problem that co-occurs with infidelity and can be exacerbated upon disclosure or discovery of the affair(s) [4].What Are Treatment Options for Couples? Military couples can utilize therapy to assist with navigating their way through problems associated with infidelity. Issues surrounding trust, trauma, and forgiveness can assist in repairing the damage that infidelity often causes to a relationship. Furthermore, it can be helpful for couples to consider family therapy when children are involved because they may absorb and react to some of the negative effects infidelity can bring to family life. Marriage education programs offered for military couples can be beneficial by increasing communication skills in couples with a history of infidelity. However, research indicates these programs may not effectively address marital satisfaction [5].
