Experts have used this data and dug deeper, pinpointing the areas where foreclosures are the highest, differentiating the statistics right down to the separate of county lines.According to the data from ATTOM Data Solutions’ November 2019 U.S. Foreclosure Activity Analysis, there were a total of 49,898 U.S. properties that filed for foreclosure during the month of November in 2019. This amount revealed a drop of 10% from the October foreclosures filed this year, and down 6% from a year ago.New Jersey had the highest concentration of foreclosure rates out of all of the states, the specific counties across the nation being Cumberland, New Jersey; Baltimore City, Maryland; Clayton, Georgia; Gloucester, New Jersey; Erie, New York; Sussex, New Jersey; Kent, Delaware; Camden, New Jersey; Prince George’s County, Maryland; and Warren, New Jersey.Statistics specifically showed that across the nation, one out of every 2,713 U.S. properties filed for foreclosure in November 2019. When the statistics were further broken down to the state levels, the states that reported the most November 2019 foreclosures included Delaware, New Jersey, Maryland, Illinois, and Florida. Among those metro areas with more than 200,000 people living in them, (of which there were 220 metro areas studied), the ones reporting the highest foreclosure rates in November included Buffalo, New York; Atlantic City, New Jersey; Columbia, South Carolina; Fayetteville, North Carolina; and Trenton, New Jersey. Among the more populated metro areas, those with at least 1 million people, which numbered 53, those with the highest foreclosure rates in November (already including Buffalo, New York) consisted of Jacksonville, Florida; Cleveland, Ohio; Baltimore, Maryland; and Philadelphia; Pennsylvania.Also mentioned in ATTOM’s November 2019 report was the fact that bank repossessions have risen 4% since October and 22% from a year ago. As for foreclosure starts, they were reporting as having fallen 13% from October and 11% from a year ago.

Tom Berry Jr. made it two in a row in the IMCA Modifieds and Kaden Reynolds became a perfect 4-for-4 in the IMCA Sunoco Hobby Stocks after starting 12th. The ninth starting Logue made the bottom side work to his advantage, finding just enough mois­ture to make it work in his 18-lap event. Logue caught leader Brayton Carter, making the pass with four laps remaining, and then sailed to victory.  Carter finished as the runner up while Jenae Gustin came from eighth to finish third.last_img read more

Copa America: Claudio Pizarro nets Peru winner against 10-man Venezuela

first_imgClaudio Pizarro scored an emphatic winner for Peru against 10-man Venezuela, keeping alive his side’s chances of making the Copa America quarter-finals. Venezuela dominated much of the first half, but were reduced to 10 men following the dismissal of defender Fernando Amorebieta after just 30 minutes for a stamp on Paolo Guerrero.And with a man advantage Peru took control. Ricardo Gareca’s side struggled to break down Venezuela, even with their man advantage, but finally found the breakthrough after 71 minutes when Pizarro smashed home a finish off the underside of the bar following a neat pass through by Guerrero.TALKING POINT – With two games played each, Group C is on a knife-edgeVenezuela had the chance to put one foot in the quarter-finals with a victory over Peru, following on from their victory over Colombia. However, Peru’s win means that all four teams in Group C – Brazil, Colombia, Peru and Venezuela – all have three points each heading into the last round of fixtures. It’s all up for grabs and there could be some big-name casualties.MAN OF THE MATCH – Claudio Pizarro The striker is without a club having left Bayern Munich at the end of last season, after going an entire season without scoring a goal, but for Peru he is still a leader and proved himself a very able replacement for the injured Jefferson Farfan. Pizarro was impressive throughout, and took his goal really well – smashing a finish in off the underside of the crossbar with aplomb.–last_img read more

Tommy Fleetwood hailed at England Golf Awards

first_imgRace to Dubai winner Tommy Fleetwood was hailed last night with England Golf’s Performance of the Year Award.Fleetwood’s stellar achievements of 2017, when he was crowned European Number One, and his follow up win in this season’s Abu Dhabi HSBC Championship were honoured at the England Golf Awards sponsored by Bridgestone.Around 500 guests attended the glittering, black tie event at the Royal Lancaster London to celebrate all that’s great about golf in England – and Fleetwood and his fellow finalists gave them much to cheer about.Fleetwood wasn’t able to attend the awards dinner but he sent a video message saying: “Thank you so much, it’s amazing to achieve and receive this award.”He also had special thanks for England Golf, recalling how he entered the training programme as a 12-year-old and continued to be supported throughout his amateur career. “Thank you for all you have done for me and for growing the game of golf,” he said.Fleetwood was ranked number one in the world as an amateur, when he was a Walker Cup player and the 2010 English amateur champion before turning professional.Fleetwood’s award was accepted on his behalf by Nathan Homer, Chief Commercial and Marketing Officer of the European TourThe other finalists for Performance of the Year were:• Lily May Humphreys of Stoke by Nayland Golf Club, Essex; the British girls’, English women’s and European Young Masters champion.• Alfie Plant of Sundridge Park Golf Club, Kent; European amateur champion, silver medallist at The Open and a Walker Cup player.• The English women’s team which became European champions for the second year in succession:  Lianna Bailey (Kirby Muxloe, Leciestershire), Gemma Clews (Delamere Forest, Cheshire), India Clyburn (Woodhall Spa, Lincolnshire), Alice Hewson (Berkhamsted, Hertfordshire), Sophie Lamb (Clitheroe, Lancashire), Rochelle Morris (Woodsome Hall, Yorkshire).They headlined a remarkable year when other England successes included:Gemma Clews (Delamere Forest, Cheshire) – Welsh Ladies’ Open Stroke PlayHarry Ellis (Meon Valley, Hampshire) – Amateur ChampionScott Gregory (Corhampton, Hampshire) – European No 1, New South Wales AmateurJosh Hilleard (Farrington Park, Somerset) – French Open Stroke PlayBryan Hughes (Hesketh, Lancashire) – Senior Amateur ChampionBen Jones (Northamptonshire County) – Sir Henry Cooper Junior MastersMatthew Jordan (Royal Liverpool, Cheshire) – St Andrews Links TrophySophie Lamb (Clitheroe, Lancashire) – leading amateur, Ricoh Women’s British OpenMax Martin (Ladbrook Park, Warwickshire) – Welsh Open Youths;Gian-Marco Petrozzi (Trentham, Staffordshire) – Welsh Open Stroke PlayTom Sloman (Taunton & Pickeridge, Somerset) – Dutch Junior OpenCharlie Strickland – Duncan Putter, Peter McEvoy TrophyTeams:European Team championships:England women – goldEngland men and England senior women – silverEngland girls and England senior men – bronzeEuropean Young MastersSenior Men’s Home InternationalsBoys’ Home InternationalsGirls’ Home Internationals Tags: Award, Performance of the Year, Tommy Fleetwood 22 Feb 2018 Tommy Fleetwood hailed at England Golf Awards last_img read more

Extra games pay big dividends as LVR prepares for AA Field Hockey provincials

first_imgIt’s always good to look on the brighter side of life.So when the L.V. Rogers Bombers suffered a crushing 1-0 loss to J. Lloyd Crowe Hawks in the final of the West Kootenay High School Girl’s Field Hockey Tournament, skipper Val Gibson took the positive approach.And the strategy paid off in spades as the Bombers not only qualified for the B.C. High School AA Girl’s Field Hockey Championships with Wild Card wins over Princess Margaret of Penticton and Surrey’s Southridge, but the players gains some valuable experience playing on a surface that will be identical to the provincial showdown.“The Wild Card games were a terrific chance for the Bombers to practice on the turf field and for the girls to gain some confidence,” Gibson said on the eve of the three-day AA tournament beginning Wednesday in West Vancouver.“It also allowed the girls to try moves that just do not work on grass.”LVR opened last week’s Wild Card tourney in Kelowna with a 2-0 win over Okanagan No. 2 Princess Margaret. Hailee Gerun and Jena Wheeldon provided the offence.The Bombers then dumped Fraser Valley No. 3 from Southridge by the same 2-0 score as Allie Zondervan and Chiara Chirico scored.Tara Yowek, a key to LVR’s success, backstopped the wins in goal.“Tara is very smart and very aggressive (and) manages the defence very well,” Gibson said of her star keeper.“She is fearless in goal but will need to control her emotions.”The wins power the Bombers to the tournament ranked ninth overall.LVR has been slotted into the four-team pool with Collingwood from the North Shore, Vancouver Island rep Shawnigan Lake Island and Little Flower Academy of Vancouver.Other players that must play well for LVR include midfielders Naomi Perkins, Hailee Gerun, Abbie Bourchier-Willans and Allie Zondervan along with snipers Emma Borhi, Jena Wheeldon, Lauren Walgren and Chiara Chirico.This is the second straight year LVR has qualified for the tournament after being shutout of the event since 2001.In 2012, the Bombers finished 10th after losing to Rossland in the final game of the tourney 2-1.last_img read more

King David’s Walled City Surfaces

first_imgA wall 21 feet thick from the First Temple period has been excavated in Jerusalem’s old City of David.  The Jerusalem Post reported on Eilat Mazar’s latest discovery: “A wall from the First Temple was recently uncovered in Jerusalem’s City of David, strengthening the claim that it is the site of the palace of King David, an Israeli archeologist said Thursday.”  The First Temple was built in the time of Solomon, David’s son and successor, in the 10th century BC.  Mazar estimates that the 20-meter-long section represents one fourth of the wall.    Some modern “minimalist” archaeologists deny that David was more than a local chieftain; others relegate the stories about him to myth.  This new find, however – the largest structure yet found in the old city – “indicates that the City of David once served as a major government center, Mazar said.”  In 2005 she had found a large building that she has claimed was David’s palace (02/09/2007, 08/09/2005).    This story was found from a link on the website of the Biblical Archaeology Society.  On April 10, Todd Bolen added some cautions about interpreting this find on Bible Places Blog.Keep digging and you will find the evidence corroborating the Bible’s accuracy.  For a good example of this, see the film “The Second Battle of Jericho” from Associates for Biblical Research, where further digging “re-corroborated” the Biblical account of Jericho after results by an earlier dig cast doubt on the story.  Not long ago, skeptics were pointing to the lack of evidence for King David in support of their minimalist views.  Then the Tel Dan inscription was found, mentioning the “house of David” in plain text for all to see (see Bible Places).  Other pieces of the puzzle continue to surface (examples, 04/12/2003 04/17/2005).  Mazar’s excavations are the most spectacular in a long trend of findings that show the Bible to be a reliable historical record.    Why are mentions of David so rare in extrabiblical sources?  It’s easy to understand for anyone who has visited Jerusalem.  Almost every square yard is occupied by buildings.  Real estate in this center of three world religions is hotly contested.  It is very difficult or impossible to get access to the most interesting sites (like the Temple Mount; see 10/31/2006).  Considering how many times in history Jerusalem has been leveled, pillaged and burned, the remarkable thing is that any trace of David’s glory would remain.  Mazar’s dig concerns a small section of a hill otherwise covered by modern-day Palestinian dwellings.  To their credit, the Israeli government has made this a national historic park which tourists can visit.  Now past its second year of excavation, Mazar’s site is certainly one to watch.    A thousand years after King David came another king, the Son of David, whose kingdom is not of this world.  An easy walk north of the palace dig are sites famous in the Easter story, where Jesus of Nazareth rode triumphantly into Jerusalem, only to be put on trial and crucified a week later.  Within an afternoon, tourists can walk the Temple Mount, where Jesus confronted the Pharisees; visit the location of the upper room, where the Last Supper occurred; walk up the Mount of Olives, where Jesus was arrested; climb down into the dungeon where He was most likely held (under the modern church of St. Peter of Gallicantu); tour the Citadel, where the trial before Pilate took place; see remnant stones of Golgotha, where He carried the cross and was crucified and rose again (inside the Church of the Holy Sepulcher).  Within a day’s drive are Emmaus, where He appeared to the two disciples after His resurrection; Tabgha on the Sea of Galilee, where He performed the miracle of the draft of fishes and told Peter to “feed My sheep”; and the summit of the Mount of Olives, where some 500 eyewitnesses saw Him ascend to heaven (see Christian Answers, Gary Habermas and Josh McDowell).  The millions who will shout, “Christ is risen – He is risen indeed” this Easter morning have a faith grounded on real estate.  Will your estate in heaven be real?  If any doubt, watch the Christian Answers video and read I John.(Visited 13 times, 1 visits today)FacebookTwitterPinterestSave分享0last_img read more

Just-So Stories for the Birds

first_img(Visited 32 times, 1 visits today)FacebookTwitterPinterestSave分享0 Any evidence can be forced into an evolutionary story if your imagination is strong enough.Not WAIR again: Old Montana chukar hunter Ken Dial hasn’t reformed since we exposed his silly partridge family story 12 years ago (12/22/03). How could he? There’s no better alternative story if you’re a Darwinist. Most of his evolutionary comrades have problems with the tree-down (arboreal) or ground-up (cursorial) theories on the origin of flight, so his story (not theory) of wing-assisted incline running (WAIR; must have a scientific-sounding acronym) fills up a falsifying gap. His trainee Ashley Heers keeps the tradition going. Science Daily describes her latest science-y experiments with X-rays that observe, legitimately, that “young birds acquire a mature flight stroke early in their development, initially relying heavily on their legs and wings to work in tandem to power the strenuous movement.” How that supports evolution is quizzical, but she finds a way. Here’s Heers’s rationalization for looking busy:“The transition from ground-living dinosaurs to flight-capable birds is one of the major evolutionary transitions in vertebrate history, because flight is the most physically demanding form of locomotion,” said lead author Ashley Heers, a postdoctoral researcher in the American Museum of Natural History’s Division of Paleontology [so far so good]. “The kind of flight that we normally think of in living birds–for example, what you might see in a pigeon or a robin–involved a huge evolutionary overhaul of the animal’s basic body plan over time. And although scientists have been studying flight for more a century, there’s actually a surprising amount that we don’t know about how birds fly.“That deficiency could be solved quickly with a single viewing of Flight: The Genius of Birds. But since that knowledge doesn’t need Darwin, she plugs on, running her little baby chukars up the ramp against their will, hoping to channel the ghost of Haeckel’s dead recapitulation theory:“Baby birds anatomically look a lot like some of the dinosaur fossils that we see,” Heers said. “And so, by studying baby birds and looking at how they actually use these dinosaur-like anatomies, we can get a better sense of how these long-extinct animals might have been using their wings.”Dial keeps running this meme in the PLoS ONE paper as co-author. Note to science historians: Dial & Heers actually reference Haeckel favorably in an earlier paper on Current Biology. Taxpayers can thank the National Science Foundation for keeping these two storytellers employed and Haeckel undead.From lizard to gizzard: The Chinese found another bird skeleton in their exceptional fossil deposits. The report in Current Biology, however, is not particularly helpful to Darwin. This enantiornithine bird ate fish and produced gastric pellets like modern birds, who digest food with grinding rocks (gastroliths) in their gizzards, a process that involves storage of gastroliths, strong muscles to grind the food and push it on to the intestine, and the software to run all the equipment. It’s the earliest known evidence for gastric pellets in birds, and looks just like modern ones. For evolutionists, this means that 120 million years ago, “Two-chambered stomach and antiperistalsis were present in Early Cretaceous birds.”Darwin finch re-interpretation: Remember the 157 years of claims that Darwin’s finches represent a classic example of natural selection? New evidence published in PNAS is calling for a revision of the story that food availability caused beak sizes to change. The new paper says, “The shapes of bird beaks are highly controlled by nondietary factors.” Whoops; this implies that beak shape and skull size are not driven by food availability, but by other factors like genetic and developmental histories. How will this affect the iconic Darwin finch story?We show that beak and skull shapes in birds of prey (“raptors”) are strongly coupled and largely controlled by size. This relationship means that, rather than being able to respond independently to natural selection, beak shapes are highly constrained to evolve in a particular way. The main aspects of shape variation seem to correspond with specific genes active during development. Because raptors are not each other’s closest relatives, similar shape constraints may therefore have been present in the ancestors of all modern songbirds, including Darwin’s finches, the classic example of explosive evolution in birds. If this hypothesis is true, then such classic examples may be unusual, needing first to break a genetic lock before their beaks could evolve new shapes.The paper was edited by Neil “your inner fish” Shubin, famous for his discovery of Tiktaalik.The storytelling never ends, but the observations tell a different story. Have you watched Flight yet? You owe it to yourself to hear the non-evolutionary alternative for bird origins.last_img read more


first_imgBoth Yuki and Rosol began with solid holds with Rosol Both Yuki and Rosol began with solid holds with Rosol hitting service winners as big as 210km per hour. In each of the first two games he hit two aces with a speed of more than 200km per hour. As the 65 tall Czech was serving too well, it was crucial for Yuki to hold his own but consistent forehand errors cost him the fifth game. Rosol hit a forehand winner on Yukis serve at 30-30 to earn the first breakpoint of the match and the Indian youngster buried his forehand on the net on that point to hand the rival team the lead. Rosol kept serving big and consolidated the lead with solid hold yet again. Unforced errors continued to flow from Yukis racquet as he smashed one overhead volley long to be down by another breakpoint and double faulted on the next point to hand Rosol a comfortable 5-2 cushion. Exactly 24 minutes into the match, Rosol was serving for the set and he sealed it with a backhand winner. It was one-way traffic in the second set as Rosol pounded Yuki, who managed to get on board only once. With two consecutive breaks and two easy holds Rosol rushed to a 4-0 lead and with one more break closed the set in his favour. Yuki played little better in the third set, managing to get his first break of the match when Rosol hit a forehand long. However he kept the advantage by dropping serve in the sixth. Having Rosol down 0-40 was the best chance for Yuki to put pressure and get a break but he squandered all five chances. Serving to stay in the match, he buried a backhand to net to give the Czech two match points and then hit a forehand on the net to give the visiting team a 1-0 lead in the tie.
