By Alex ShawWith European finals and domestic play-offs approaching, the conclusion of the northern hemisphere season is nigh and attention is beginning to shift towards the home nations’ summer tours.England and Wales have three-match tours to the Antipodes lined-up, facing Australia and New Zealand respectively, whilst Ireland are also heading south for a three-match series, to take on South Africa. Scotland round off the summer schedule with a two-match tour of Japan.With no international rugby for the southern hemisphere nations (plus Japan) since the Rugby World Cup last year, rugby fans, coaches and journalists alike are treating this year’s Super Rugby competition as the most useful form guide as to how the All Blacks, Wallabies, Springboks and Cherry Blossoms will all perform this summer.We take a look below at some of the competition’s more impressive performers so far this season and identify who could be the architects of the home nations’ downfall in June.Try time: Julian Savea will be waiting to welcome Wales in New ZealandNew Zealand v Wales1st Test Auckland, 11 June,2nd Test Wellington, 18 June,3rd Test, Dunedin, 25 June)Damian McKenzie, Chiefs and New ZealandThe irrepressible full-back is currently uncapped but even given the riches New Zealand have at their disposal in the 15 jersey, he will surely feature at some point this summer. Heading into Round 10, Damian McKenzie leads Super Rugby in tries (seven), points (120), metres (621) and defenders beaten (36), as well as being just shy of the summit in offloads (14) and clean breaks (15). If the stats are not enough, he has also certainly passed the eye test, playing with complete composure and awareness, and doing things with a rugby ball that his potential Welsh adversaries can only dream of.Breakaway: Damien McKenzie’s brilliance has brought him into the All Blacks’ reckoningIt is testament to McKenzie’s impact this season that there is talk of moving the world’s undisputed best full-back, Ben Smith, back to a spot on the wing, and that the resurgent Israel Dagg will have to bide his time before once again donning the silver fern. With no Dan Carter anymore, the reliable boot of McKenzie could allow Steve Hansen the luxury of removing place-kicking concerns from his decisions at fly-half, something which could work in the favour of Beauden Barrett.Charlie Ngatai, Chiefs and New ZealandA shoulder injury may be hampering Ngatai right now, but he should be fit and firing once again long before Wales arrive in the Land of the Long White Cloud. The inside centre hasn’t just been knocking down doors in the Chiefs midfield, he’s been bringing down entire houses with his barnstorming runs and, critically, is showing the speed of thought and distribution skills to turn those holes into chasms with his passing and offloading.Plugging the gap: Charlie Ngatai is being primed to fill the hole left by Ma’a NonuMa’a Nonu has moved to France and Sonny Bill Williams is focused on the upcoming Olympics in Rio, suddenly propelling the in-form Ngatai into pole position to step into the All Blacks’ inside-centre void. Lima Sopoaga, George Moala and Ryan Crotty are other options, but all three are a significant way off the early season form of Ngatai.Australia v England 1st Test, 11th June, Brisbane2nd Test, 18th June, Melbourne3rd Test, 25th June, Sydney The four home nations will soon travel South to test their mettle against the World’s top three sides and giant-slayers Japan. Who should they be doing their homework on? Touchdown: Harumichi Tatekawa’s elusive running could give Scotland’s centres some uneasy momentsHowever, it is no coincidence that a move to inside centre for Tatekawa pre-empted the Tokoyo-based franchise’s first ever victory in Super Rugby, as they defeated the Jaguares in Round 9, 36-28. At inside centre the Sunwolves make better use of Tatekawa’s distribution skills, and that was evident as he pulled the strings alongside Tusi Pisi and found significant holes in the Jaguares’ defence. The likes of Duncan Taylor and Mark Bennett will need to be on their toes defensively in June, lest this dual-threat centre expose them as well.For the latest Rugby World subscription offers, click here LATEST RUGBY WORLD MAGAZINE SUBSCRIPTION DEALS Sean McMahon, Rebels and AustraliaThe 21-year-old flanker has led the Rebels to the top of the Australian conference and is receiving backing from all quarters to cement himself into a new-look Australian back row. To be the standout openside flanker in a conference which also boasts David Pocock, Michael Hooper and Matt Hodgson is quite something and McMahon may be forcing Michael Cheika’s hand with his constant breakdown pilfering and ability to find or create gaps in defences.Dynamic: Sean McMahon has been in great form for the RebelsCheika has already hinted that he may field three natural opensides in his back row to take on England, whilst others have suggested that Hooper’s form has not been good enough and that McMahon should take his spot alongside Pocock and Scott Fardy. Either way, it seems probable that the former Australia U20 captain will be heavily involved with the Wallabies this summer and will likely come face-to-face with Maro Itoje, the man who led England to knock McMahon’s U20 side out of the Junior World Championship two years ago.South Africa v Ireland1st Test, 11th June, Cape Town2nd Test, 18th June, Johannesburg3rd Test, 25th June, Port ElizabethElton Jantjies, Lions and South AfricaFew will envy Allister Coetzee’s job of having to combine the goals of winning and transformation, all the while having to deal with an expectant fan base and a government that aren’t afraid to involve themselves in the affairs of sport. Thankfully for Springbok fans, that’s a combination Coetzee managed well with Western Province and the Stormers and in fly-half Jantjies, he has a player that ticks both boxes.Lift off: Elton Jantjies is the type of gifted playmaker who should replace Handre PollardHandré Pollard will miss the series with Ireland through injury, whilst Pat Lambie is still recovering from a dislocated shoulder which has seen him unable to feature in Super Rugby thus far this season. Jantjies is the standout fly-half in South African rugby right now and has been spearheading the very ambitious style of rugby that the Lions like to play under Johan Ackermann. He can also kick well and defend solidly, like any South African fly-half worth his salt, but the high-tempo and expansive style he likes to employ could be what gives him the edge over the competition and makes him a very troublesome thorn in Ireland’s side this summer.Japan v Scotland1st Test, 18th June, Aichi2nd Test, 25th June, TokyoHarumichi Tatekawa, Sunwolves and JapanThe reality is that large swathes of the Brave Blossoms squad will not come from the Sunwolves, rather the Japanese Top League, but playmaking centre Harumichi Tatekawa is a player that, barring injury, should certainly line up against Scotland in June. A former fly-half, Tatekawa has been playing solidly at outside centre in an earnest but under-equipped Sunwolves side this season and has definitely been one of the more impressive players in the team. The rematch: England will look to avenge their World Cup defeat in a three-Test tour

By Vivian Weinstein and the Workers World Milwaukee bureauMilwaukee. Photo: Youth Empowered in the Struggle – UWMHundreds took to the streets Feb. 11 in Milwaukee to confront the Democratic Party debate between Bernie Sanders and Hillary Clinton held at the University of Wisconsin Milwaukee’s Zelazo Center.Despite dozens of police and other repressive state agents’ harassment, protesters with signs and banners from the Fight For $15 movement marched to demand a living wage. Activists from Youth Empowered in the Struggle demanded an end to raids and deportations of migrants and that the U.S. get out of Latin America and the Caribbean. Students for a Democratic Society and other campus organizations demanded a future without crushing debt, expressed support for campus workers and called for resources to benefit students of color; lesbian, gay, bisexual, transgender, queer and women students in general; and workers.Retirees and other workers, including many Teamsters and members of the Wisconsin Committee to Protect Pensions, demanded a secure retirement and an end to the theft of their hard-earned retirement funds. Black Lives Matter activists demanded an end to police terror and justice for Dontre Hamilton, who was killed by a Milwaukee police officer in 2014, and all those killed and brutalized by the police.Other organizations such as the Latin American Solidarity Committee, the Milwaukee Antiwar Committee, the Milwaukee Palestine Solidarity Coalition, the Wisconsin Bail Out the People Movement and Workers World Party demanded an end to imperialist wars and money for the people, not the Pentagon and the banks. Anti-war activists reminded protesters that the UW-Milwaukee library is named after the late Israeli prime minister, Golda Meir, who led the apartheid settler state to steal Palestinian land and butcher its original occupants.At one point during the evening, Fight For $15 workers occupied the media room for the debate, housed at UW-Milwaukee, to righteously and loudly demand social and economic justice. Denver. WW photo: Vivian WeinsteinTwo days later, on Feb. 13, hundreds protested at a Democratic fundraiser in Denver attended by presidential candidates Hillary Clinton and Bernie Sanders. The demonstrators demanded an end to fracking and for development of renewable energy. The young protesters understand the connections, which not a single candidate has addressed, between trade deals, environmental imperialism and the disproportionate misery of the poor, who do not produce the carbon that the imperialists do. The candidates must be forced to face these issues. Wars and the U.S. military are enormous users of oil, hence they are producers of carbon. U.S. wars are bad for the Earth, and the cost impoverishes our cities and towns.FacebookTwitterWhatsAppEmailPrintMoreShare thisFacebookTwitterWhatsAppEmailPrintMoreShare this

This will include 30 social housing units and five affordable housing units as part of the Public Land Activation Programme.Sign up for the weekly Limerick Post newsletter Sign Up Draft contracts were issued to contractors last month with final bid to be submitted in the coming weeks.Speaking at this Tuesday’s meeting of the Adare-Rathkeale Municipal District, Cllr Kevin Sheahan said that if the Council was to properly serve the local community, then more affordable housing is required.“This is an opportunity to serve the needs of all the people. Not everyone can afford to live there. We’ll have to revisit the plan,” the Fianna Fail politician commented.“We need to create more affordable sites, five is not enough. A foolproof policy is needed and I encourage you to take this development as a pilot scheme.”Mayor Stephen Keary raised concerns about the “slow pace” of development in Adare.“This plan was rolled out over two years ago but nothing visible has happened. We should have a policy for affordable serviced sites throughout the county,” he said.Independent councillor Emmett O’Brien took the view that not enough is being done to address the housing crisis.“Housing Minister Eoghan Murphy seems to spend most of his time tweeting pictures of Leo Varadkar,” he claimed.Visit the Limerick Post News section for more local news.

Despite the increase, the average loan-to-value (LTV) during this time was unchanged from the same quarter in 2017. Additionally, the average credit score was about the same.Corelogic notes that the rise in DTI ratios may reflect the growing affordability pressures for homebuyers in the face of rising mortgage rates in the latter months of 2018. Fannie Mae began accepting mortgages with LTV ratios up to 97 percent in December 2014 raised its DTI ratio level from 45 to 50 percent in July 2017, while Freddie Mac began accepting LTV ratios up to 97 percent them in March 2015.Average credit scores for homeowners with CC home-purchase loans fell by one point year over year in Q4 2018, but Corelogic notes that on average, credit scores are higher than pre recession levels.“For example, the average credit score of homebuyers was 705 in 2001, but dramatically rose during the Great Recession in 2008, and was 754 in the fourth quarter of 2018,” Corelogic stated. “In addition to high credit score standards, those high DTI and LTV loans in 2018 were fully documented and are thus different than the pre-housing crash high DTI and LTV loans, in which many of the latter were low/no documentation loans.”While DTI is high, Corelogic also reports that delinquency is down while home equity is up, according to Corelogic’s latest Loan Performance Insights report. The report notes that delinquency and foreclosure rates are lower across the country, but some areas are still feeling the impact of recent natural disasters.”On a national basis, income and home-price growth continue to support strong loan performance,” said Corelogic President and CEO Frank Martell. “Although things look good across most of the nation, areas that were impacted by hurricanes and other natural hazards are experiencing a sharp increase in the numbers of mortgages moving into 60-day delinquency or worse. One specific example is Panama City, Florida, which was devastated by Hurricane Michael, where 60-day delinquencies rose to 3.5 percent in December.” Demand Propels Home Prices Upward 2 days ago Data Provider Black Knight to Acquire Top of Mind 2 days ago Tagged with: CoreLogic debt Defaults DTI loans CoreLogic debt Defaults DTI loans 2019-03-25 Seth Welborn Sign up for DS News Daily March 25, 2019 1,051 Views Home / Daily Dose / The State of Homeowner Credit Previous: Where Young Millennials Are Buying Homes Next: The Obduskey Effect: Foreclosures, FDCPA, and the Supreme Court Seth Welborn is a Reporter for DS News and MReport.
