Beef Checkoff Adopts New Committee Structure

first_img The Cattlemen’s Beef Board and the Federation of State Beef Councils adopted a new structure during the 2012 Cattle Industry Summer Conference. The new structure effectively reduced the number of checkoff program committees to four in 2013 – down from 13. Each of the committees will be tied directly to core strategies identified in the 2011-2013 Beef Industry Long Range Plans. Beef Board member Hank Maxey says unification of the industry around the goals of the Long Range Plan is the vision of the plan itself. The Domestic Consumer Preference Committee, Global Growth Committee, Beef’s Image Committee and the Freedom to Operate Committee make up the four initial checkoff program committees.Each committee will have the ability to appoint subcommittees where members deem necessary. The Domestic Consumer Preference Committee will have five subcommittees from the start. Each one will focus on one of five consumer demand drivers in the Long Range Plan – convenience; safety; value; nutrtion and health; and taste. Maxey notes the goal is to improve domestic preference for beef – not demand.Beef Board CEO Polly Ruhland says the new structure is a big step forward to focusing checkoff work on consumer demand and preference. She says the conversion to the new structure will take place between now and the February 2013 cattle industry annual convention.

Kelsey Ritchie https://www.tcu360.com/author/kelsey-ritchie/ TCU vs Baylor in Photos Kelsey Ritchiehttps://www.tcu360.com/author/kelsey-ritchie/ printHomeless Awareness Week from TCU Student Media on Vimeo.A night under the stars soon turned into a night of braving the elements for 12 students camping in the Commons Monday night, but while the weather may not have been ideal, it gave the students a deeper understanding of why they were there in the first place: to advocate for homeless awareness.The TCU Wesley Foundation, a community of students within the United Methodist Church, dedicated this week as Homeless Awareness Week with the focus on raising awareness on campus about the homeless population in Fort Worth.“We have been passionate about homelessness for several years now and we finally decided to make a big event out of it,” said Haley Rylander, a junior environmental science major and member of the TCU Wesley Foundation. “We wanted to do more than just give our time to a homeless shelter or collect donations. We wanted to really impact the community as a whole and reach as many people as possible, so we organized events across a whole week during November, which is Homelessness Awareness Month.”TCU Wesley hosted events throughout the week including a campout in the Commons, a film screening, speaker discussions, a donations drive and a closing dinner.The campout in the Commons allowed students to spend the night in the shoes—or in this case, the sleeping bag—of a homeless person.Before the students attempted to sleep, they heard from someone who had been in their position before, but for real. Lou Friese, a man who was formerly homeless and is now a custodian at First United Methodist Church, told students what it was like sleeping on the streets.“The reality is, not every homeless person can sleep in a shelter,” Friese said. “That means that some are left to sleep outside, whether that be on the side of the highway or somewhere more tucked away.”Isaac Dunn, president of TCU Wesley, said he hoped to gain better insight into what homeless people face on a nightly basis.“This is an opportunity for us to get a small glimpse of what it would be like to have to sleep in these conditions night after night,” Dunn said. “It’s so eye-opening to think about how susceptible you are to the elements when you don’t have a home to go to at night.”Twelve students signed up to sleep in the Commons. Their night under the stars soon became a night against the wind, including a tornado warning at around 4 a.m. Students took shelter in the mailroom near the Commons and went back outside once the storm cleared.Their efforts and perseverance did not go unnoticed.“I was really surprised and impressed when I saw people in sleeping bags out in the Commons area,” said Grant Rutledge, a first-year student who happened to pass by the group. “TCU is a really affluent area and I don’t think people know that homelessness is a real problem. This draws awareness to it.”In addition to the campout, TCU Wesley hosted a screening of the independent film “Homeless,” a docudrama filmed and produced by independent filmmakers Tif and Clay Hassler.“Homeless” is a 90-minute feature film the Hasslers made about a friend in their church. The couple produced the film on a $12,000 budget.“This project really opened our eyes to the homeless population both locally and nationally,” Tif Hassler said. “Telling the story of someone who hasn’t ever really had their story told is incredible.”“Our goal is to reach as many audiences as possible,” Clay Hassler added. “We both have a background in higher education and working on college campuses. We know there is a real energy within college students. There are people ready to mobilize and get things done. With TCU putting on Homelessness Awareness Week, it was a perfect collaboration.”The film tells the story of a teenage boy caught in cyclical homelessness. He balances school, work and trying to find a place to sleep. But it wasn’t the boy’s location or attitude that resonated with the audience—it was his age.“The entire time I was watching the film I just kept thinking like, ‘Wow, this could be me,’” said Samantha Granado, a junior studio art major. “I’ve thought about it before, you know, getting out of school and not having a place to live. I just don’t think I realized that it really happens.”TCU Wesley set up tables and propaganda stations throughout the week educating students with facts and figures about the homeless community in Fort Worth and taking donations to various shelters.The week concludes Friday night with a dinner at the TCU Wesley Center. Students will go through the book of Job and discuss suffering. The event is open to all.Through Homelessness Awareness Week, members of TCU Wesley are hoping to ignite a sense of urgency on campus to reach out to the homeless in Fort Worth.“TCU students are, for one, really smart,” said Allison Lanza, associate campus chaplain. “Secondly, they are really caring and compassionate about things going on in our world. We often think of our world as really far away, and I think sometimes that our world and people that are suffering are right in our backyard. TCU students have the potential to really make a difference.” Linkedin Video: cello ensemble closes out semester with winter concert Website| + posts Students seek refuge from the harsh winds during their campout in the Commons Monday night, Nov. 16.

A few releases in Syria, foreign media still targeted in Bahrain

first_img BahrainMiddle East – North Africa Organisation News to go further News SYRIAReporters Without Borders is relieved by yesterday’s release of six opposition figures including the journalist and writer Fayez Sara, who was arrested on 11 April, and the blogger Kamal Sheikhou, who was arrested on 11 April. They were freed on payment of 5,000 pounds (73 euros) each in bail. Hazem Nahar, who also blogs (http://webcache.googleusercontent.com/search?hl=ar&q=cache:KnByyAA48PEJ:…), was also released. He was arrested on 28 April.The press freedom organization nonetheless continues to be very concerned about all the other people still held by the authorities and those whose whereabouts are not known.The most disturbing case is that of Dorothy Parvaz, a journalist with US, Canadian and Iranian nationality who works for Al-Jazeera English. She has been missing since her arrival at Damascus airport on 29 April. Al-Jazeera has denied yesterday’s report in the government newspaper Al-Watan that she left the country on 1 May “without saying where she was going (http://www.alwatan.sy/dindex.php?idn=100992).”If Parvaz left Syria, as the authorities say, they would be able to produce evidence of this. The claim that she departed without any mention of where she was going is completely lacking in credibility. Since when do the Syrian authorities not know the destination of passengers leaving on flights from Damascus international airport?The Syrian government must explain what has happened to this journalist, from whom no one has heard anything for the past 12 days. There is concern that the authorities used the fact that she entered Syria on her Iranian passport to deport her to Iran. This is the Facebook page calling for her release: http://www.facebook.com/FreeDorothy?sk=wall).The following are still held:- The Syrian journalist and writer Ammar Mashour Dayoub, who was arrested on 9 May while taking part in a demonstration by about 100 people in Arnous Square, in central Damascus.- Malak Al-Shanawani, a woman journalist and activist who was arrested on 9 May.- Ghadi Frances, a woman journalist working for the Lebanese daily Al-Safir who was arrested in Damascus on the afternoon of 7 May.- The Syrian writer and journalist Omar Koush, who was arrested on 2 May on his arrival at Damascus airport after attending a conference in Turkey.- The Syrian journalist and blogger Jehad Jamal, also known by the pseudonym of Milan, who was arrested in the café Milano in Aleppo on 5 May. The owner of the computer Jamal was using at the time of his arrest, Jilal Siris, was also arrested, as was the owner of the Internet connection he was using. The authorities tried to find out the password he was using in order to gain access to his email and Facebook accounts. Reporters Without Borders has been told that the authorities succeeded in gaining control of his Facebook account.- Mohamed Zaid Mistou, a Norwegian journalist of Syrian origin arrested on 7 April.There is still no news of the journalists Akram Abu Safi and Sobhie Naeem Al-Assal, who have been missing since 24 March.BAHRAINReporters Without Borders condemns yesterday’s decision by the Bahraini authorities to expel German journalist Frederik Richter, the Reuters correspondent in Manama since 2008, for alleged bias in his coverage of the pro-democracy protest movement. He has been given a week to leave. “Reuters regrets Bahrain’s decision to expel its correspondent,” editor-in-chief Stephen Adler said, adding that the agency stood by his reporting.The Information Affairs Authority nonetheless insists that it is not closing down Reuters’ operations in Manama and is prepared to accredit another correspondent appointed by the agency.Monica Pietro of the Spanish daily El Mundo was denied entry on arrival at Manama airport on 9 May and was sent back to Spain the next day. Read her account in Spanish: http://www.elmundo.es/elmundo/2011/05/10/comunicacion/1305059020.html.Reporters Without Borders strongly condemns the government’s attempts to obstruct news media that are trying to cover the pro-democracy protests in Bahrain and urges it to allow foreign journalists to enter the country and work without any restrictions.Ali Omid, a young blogger and activist who heads the Ali AlAsghar Society and moderates its online forum (http://alialasghar.us/vb), which has been blocked in Bahrain since 2009, was arrested at his home in Muharraq at 1:30 a.m. yesterday and was taken to an undisclosed location.

Foreclosure Completions, Starts on GSE Loans Continue Steady Decline

This number hit its peak in Q3 2010 with 138,000 and took a while to begin it steady decline, but it has decreased quarter-over-quarter every quarter since Q3 2012.Foreclosure starts declined from 86,000 in Q2 to 75,000 in Q3, a drop of 13 percent, according to the report. With only a few exceptions (Q4 2011, Q3 2012, and Q1 2013), foreclosure starts have declined quarter-over-quarter in every quarter since hitting their peak of 339,000 in Q3 2010.The number of foreclosure prevention actions for Q3, 72,700, was more than double the number of foreclosures completed, according to the report. About 59,000 of these were home retention actions, most of which (45,700) came in the form of permanent loan modifications. There were nearly 11,000 repayment plans and about 2,800 forbearance plans to keep borrowers in their homes in Q3, according to FHFA.The number of home retention actions, 59,000, was about four and a half times the total of home forfeiture actions (12,878) for the third quarter, according to the report. Home forfeiture actions during the quarter consisted of short sales, which are sales for less than the outstanding balance of a mortgage (9,200) and deeds-in-lieu of foreclosure (3,600).Home retention actions are way down from last year’s pace, however. Nearly 342,000 home retention actions were completed for GSE loans in all of 2013; for the first nine months of 2014, only 199,000 home retention actions were reported. Home forfeiture actions are on the decline as well – nearly 106,000 such actions were reported for all of 2013, compared to just 42,300 for the first nine months of 2014.The total of GSE-backed 60-day delinquent loans in Q3 was at its lowest level since the conservatorships began in September 2008, according to the report. About 666,000 such delinquent loans were reported for Q3, and the number has steadily declined every quarter since hitting a peak of 1.77 million in Q4 2009. The number of 60-day delinquent loans totaled 926,000 in Q4 2008, the first full quarter after the conservatorships began, according to the report.

April 8, 2021 732 Views Ginnie Mae: MBS Remain Source of Affordable Financing for Homeownership Demand Propels Home Prices Upward 2 days ago Data Provider Black Knight to Acquire Top of Mind 2 days ago Share Save 2021-04-08 Christina Hughes Babb in Daily Dose, Featured, News Ginnie Mae on Thursday announced that mortgage-backed securities (MBS) continue to be a source of affordable financing for homeownership and rental housing.For March, Ginnie Mae reported an MBS issuance volume of $82.25 billion in March, up from $77 billion issued in February.Issuance continues to be fueled by across-the-board demand for government-backed mortgages as consumers increase home refinance and home purchase volume during this period of very low interest rates. Approximately 294,072 homes and apartment units were financed by Ginnie Mae guaranteed MBS in March.”Although mortgage rates have increased from their all-time lows, strong consumer appetite for the mortgage programs of our federal insuring and guaranteeing partners continues to drive home purchase and mortgage refinancing and fuel MBS issuance and investment,” said Ginnie Mae Acting EVP Michael Drayne.A breakdown of March issuance of $82.25 billion includes $76.81 billion of Ginnie Mae II MBS and $5.44 billion of Ginnie Mae I MBS, which includes $5.35 billion of loans for multifamily housing.Ginnie Mae’s total outstanding principal balance as of March 31 was $2.1 trillion, not significantly different from $2.105 trillion in February, and down slightly from the March 2020 level of $2.14 trillion.The following explains the two types of Ginne Mae MBS:Ginnie Mae I MBS are modified pass-through mortgage-backed securities for which registered holders receive separate principal and interest payments on each of their certificates. Ginnie Mae I securities can include single-family, multifamily, manufactured home, and project construction loans.Ginnie Mae II MBS are modified pass-through mortgage-backed securities for which registered holders receive an aggregate principal and interest payment from a central paying agent. An Issuer may participate in the Ginnie Mae II MBS either by issuing custom, single-Issuer pools or through participation in the issuance of multiple-Issuer pools, which combine loans with similar characteristics.Ginnie Mae in 2013 began releasing monthly loan-level data for existing, active single-family mortgage-backed securities (MBS).”The release of loan-level data for existing single-family MBS is an important step toward improving our transparency,” Ginnie Mae President Ted Tozer said at the time. “Enhancing MBS disclosures assists Ginnie Mae in attracting global capital by meeting the needs of investors more effectively and enabling them to make better-informed investment decisions.The company has since been continuing to enhance its MBS data disclosure system.For more information on monthly MBS issuance, UPB balance, REMIC monthly issuance and global market analysis visit Ginnie Mae Disclosure.

Payroll costs will be down over 8 million euro, discounting VEC pensions.With the local government fund down by over 2.5 million euro, there will be pressure on the councils accounts, while increases in rates and charges are clearly not going to be accepted by councillors in the current economic climate.Mr Neely is proposing a 3.5% reduction in the commercial rate, with water charges to remain the same as this year.Last year’s budget meeting ended in controversy when the then mayor called a vote when only his own Fianna Fail colleagues were present in the chamber.
