Governmental Measures Target Expanded Access to Affordable Housing 2 days ago The Best Markets For Residential Property Investors 2 days ago Data Provider Black Knight to Acquire Top of Mind 2 days ago Americans are paying their mortgages on time more often than they have in nearly two decades, according to the American Institute of CPAs’ (AICPA) Q1 2019 Personal Financial Satisfaction Index (PFSi). The PFSi states that loan delinquencies dropped 5.5% (1.8 points) from the previous quarter, with the improvement mostly driven by mortgages. While the amount of delinquencies dropped to its lowest level since 2007, the rate is still higher than what was seen between 1994–2003. The PFSi is calculated as the Personal Financial Pleasure Index (Pleasure Index) minus the Personal Financial Pain Index (Pain Index). Positive readings signal Americans are feeling more financial pleasure than pain.“No one wants to pay any more taxes than they owe. Now is the perfect time to use the information in your tax return and underlying documents to build a tax-efficient financial plan,” said Michael Landsberg, CPA/PFS member of the AICPA’s Personal Financial Planning Executive Committee. “This was the first year with most provisions of the new tax law on the books. As many have discovered, the changes went far beyond a reduction to income tax brackets. If you haven’t already considered the new tax law changes, now is the opportune time to review and update your financial plan.”Taxes and money are an important component of the Pain Index, especially when measuring financial satisfaction. The report states then when income taxes change, Americans notice because it impacts the amount of money they take home. Americans also hope for a lower tax burden, which, for some, can be reflected in a higher refund.Americans received an average tax refund of $2,899 in 2017. In 2018—the first under the new law—the average tax fell to $2,795, according to the IRS.The Q1 2019 PFSi measured 36.1, an 11.3 percent (3.7 points) increase from the prior quarter. The increase was due to a 2.4-point increase in the Pleasure Index combined with a 1.3-point decrease in the Pain Index.Stocks surged in the first quarter of 2019 after a sharp decline in the fourth quarter of 2018. Gains in the stock market, combined with an improved job market, pushed American’s personal financial satisfaction to a new record high, according to the AICPA’s Q1 2019 PFSi.The PFSi bounced back from its first decline in two years to reach its sixth record high in seven quarters.

Garth Hudson and Taj Mahal To Join Warren Haynes, Dr. John And More For The Last Waltz Celebration In Chicago

first_imgIt is hard to believe that one of the most memorable performances ever, The Last Waltz, put on by The Band took place 40 years ago at San Francisco’s Winterland Ballroom. It is arguably considered the best single night concert in history, as The Band was joined by a plethora of uber-talented special guests and friends.In honor of The Last Waltz’s 40th anniversary, Warren Haynes, Dr. John (who also played the original Last Waltz), Cyril Neville, Don Was, Dave Malone, and many more will come together to perform at The Chicago Theatre on Sunday, April 9th. Original The Band member Garth Hudson and blues legend Taj Mahal will also join the lineup to pay tribute to the special performance. To top it all off, Mark Mullins will lead an all-star horn section, which will feature the original horn arrangements of Allen Toussaint.Warren Haynes had the following to say about the show, “Whenever you’re doing someone else’s music, you’re paying respect and bringing the deepest parts of your own personality to bear. And you hope for surprises. . . . These songs – so deeply ingrained in the zeitgeist of who we are in this country – hearing them now is like finding a rare jewel.” Grammy Award-winning musician/producer Don Was also chimed in about The Band’s role in music history, “People love these songs and they’ve become a part of the emotional zeitgeist of country. And unlike the Rolling Stones, the Beatles, Bob Dylan, the Beach Boys or Pink Floyd songs, there’s nobody that’s playing this stuff for folks. You can’t really go to a concert and hear anyone playing The Band’s songs.”Tickets for The Last Waltz 40 performance at The Chicago Theatre on April 9th are currently on sale and can be purchased here.[photos courtesy of Blackbird Presents]last_img read more

Old Gravestones To Be Repaired

first_imgBy Rick Geffken |SHREWSBURY – If you’re whistling past Shrewsbury’s Christ Church graveyard next year, it won’t be out of superstitious fear. You’ll probably be reacting to the restoration of 75 historic grave markers in the 300-year old burial ground. Thanks to a recently awarded $117,000 preservation grant from the New Jersey Historic Trust, the Sycamore Avenue and Broad Street final resting place of about 1,500 souls will look, well, old, but better.A weather and time-worn sandstone grave marker in the Christ Church Cemetery in Shrewsbury.Graveyard Commission chairman and parish historian Robert M. Kelly Jr. said the grant enables the parish to continue the important restoration work begun under a previous grant related to Super Storm Sandy. It will also supplement work first started in 2015 under a Department of the Interior grant for storm repair and resiliency efforts. The former project included photographs of every grave marker from multiple angles. The condition of each stone was described and notated – a historical record in itself and a beginning point for future restorations.Fourteen grave markers in critical condition, mostly 18th century brown sandstones, were expertly restored two years ago by Jablonski Building Conservators, under the supervision of Lorraine Schnabel LLC., an architectural conservation firm specializing in historic masonry.  Schnabel’s company also submitted a complete condition assessment, detailed specifications which will guide restoration work funded by the new grant.Kelly is pleased by the results to date. “Grave marker repair can be a complex process depending upon the composition of the marker,” he said. “Is it made from granite, marble, sandstone or slate? And the condition of the stone: Is it broken, delaminated, leaning, etc.? Multiple steps also involve chemicals and adhesives. Considerable training and experience is required.”The Christ Church burial ground has been in use continually since its inception, forming a historical record of the evolution of the area. Eight hundred eighty individual markers have been recorded and mapped, with the likelihood that more are just below the surface and out of sight.Kelly became highly involved with the Christ Church Cemetery some years ago when he and Trevor Kirkpatrick undertook an immense project to identify all the folks interred there. Kirkpatrick plotted and photographed each individual gravesite, then created a searchable genealogical database invaluable to researchers. New and overlooked information about Shrewsbury history, religious and secular, was discovered.Kelly’s foresight is now rewarded. “The funding demonstrates the recognition by the New Jersey Historic Trust of the value of grave markers in understanding our history,” he says. “Further, the grant includes funding for a grave marker cleaning workshop for the public and a self-guided tour that makes the history more accessible and vibrant for the community.”Richard Veit, chair of the department of history and anthropology at Monmouth University and a leading expert in New Jersey graveyards, will develop the curriculum for the self-guided tour of the cemetery.This article was first published in the Oct. 12-19, 2017 print edition of The Two River Times.last_img read more

The Solar Decathlon 2011 Lineup

first_imgThose of us who might visit Washington, D.C., in 18 months so we can tour the 2011 Solar Decathlon contest entries on the National Mall have the luxury of planning the trip at our leisure. But for the 20 collegiate teams recently awarded spots in the 2011 contest by the Department of Energy, feverish preparation for the competition began long ago.As we noted in July of last year, in a post about the University of Tennessee’s ambitions to land a place in the competition, developing a project proposal for consideration by the DOE’s Decathlon selection committee requires technical ingenuity, construction expertise, budget planning, and months of advance work. The DOE will announce its request for proposals for the 2013 competition, for example, in the summer of next year. (The Solar Decathlon is a biennial event in the U.S., and there is a similar event scheduled for June this year and in 2012 in Europe).Gearing up for the big tripIn the end, though, the Solar Decathlon is all about creating houses that are affordable, energy efficient, and attractive, as the DOE puts it – but also with no more than 800 sq. ft. of interior space. Each entry is judged in 10 contest categories: architecture, market viability, engineering, lighting design, communications, comfort zone (temperature and humidity), hot water, appliances, home entertainment, and net metering. Suffice to say, all teams try to deploy solar power not only generously but strategically.The DOE gives $100,000 to each contestant to help with development costs, although the teams are responsible for raising whatever remaining funds they’ll need to complete their projects, transport team members and Decathlon houses to Washington and back, and construct and operate their houses on the National Mall.Happily for the team of faculty, graduate students, and undergraduates assembled by the University of Tennessee’s College of Architecture and Design, its Solar Decathlon house, called Living Light, was selected to be among those built on the Mall in 2011. This will be UT’s first Decathlon.The contendersHere are the other 19 contestants. We’ve included a few words about each project for the first nine listings below; conceptual models for the remaining listings are featured in the photo gallery, where briefs about each entry are included in the captions accompanying the photos. (You can view images of all the models on the Solar Decathlon website.)– Florida International University. This team’s entry, called PerFORM[D]ance House, features adjustable louvers that can be used to alter the canopy for sun, shade, and even hurricane conditions found in tropical climates. The team says the house is designed to perform “in real time by sensing and responding to the generation and acquisition of energy.”– University of Hawaii. Monocoque House, another design for tropical conditions, is aimed at middle-income buyers. It features a water-cooled PV system and phase-change material for thermal storage, radiant floor heating, and radiant ceiling cooling. The shell-like exterior, made of lightweight bio-based, fiber-reinforced polymer, is resistant to corrosion, rot, and insects. The house also will float if there’s a flood.– University of Illinois at Urbana-Champaign. Called Community Conexion, this house is designed as a disaster-relief shelter deployed in three stages, with the last stage presented as a fully equipped home.– University of Maryland. This house, called Watershed, features two rectangular units capped by a butterfly roof. It also includes an edible green wall and garden.– The New School and Stevens Institute of Technology. Called Better Together, this house is designed to provide solar-powered Habitat for Humanity housing for residents of the low-income Deanwood neighborhood of Ward 7 in Washington, D.C.It consists of two modules that unite to form a functioning solar duplex, with each module sustainable on its own but designed to achieve peak efficiency when joined with its counterpart. Hybrid photovoltaic thermal cells generate most of the power.– Victoria University of Wellington, New Zealand. This 700 sq. ft. house, First Light, is billed as an affordable reinterpretation of the historic New Zealand holiday home, the “Kiwi bach.” In addition to a rooftop PV system, it produces hot water with a roof-mounted evacuated-tube system.– Ohio State University. On the Solar Decathlon website, this project, called INTROhouse, is described as “an inward-focused design that features a rainwater collection pond at its core as well as a courtyard with wild garden to provide occupants with views of nature.” A steel grate on the exterior serves as a rain screen and shields the house from summer heat, and a PV array mounted horizontally on the roof provides electricity while also shading the roof and courtyard. A central combined air-to-air/air-to-water heat pump provides heating and cooling.– Florida State University, The University of Central Florida, The University of Florida, and The University of South Florida (Team Florida). Team Florida will present Flex House, a modular home intended for medium-income homebuyers living in a hot, humid, sunny climate. The structure features sliding glass panels on the north and south walls that open to a central courtyard for ventilation during mild months, high ceilings with a solar chimney, moveable interior partitions to maximize HVAC efficiency, and an interior desiccant waterfall that absorbs moisture from the air to control humidity.– Massachusetts College of Art and Design and the University of Massachusetts at Lowell (Team Massachusetts). Team Massachusetts says its project, 4-D Home, “is designed to accommodate the needs of a family of three throughout their lives.” It is actually three small houses clustered around a south-facing side yard, or “dooryard.” Removable glass wall panels surround the dooryard space, which serves as a sunroom in winter and an open porch in summer.– Tidewater Virginia: Old Dominion University and Hampton University. This team’s project, Unit 6 Unplugged, is an affordable home designed for construction in confined urban settings. The structure to be presented at the Solar Decathlon, the team says, “represents part of a six-unit, multifamily infill building for a central city site. One full unit and a portion of the building core will be on exhibit” in Washington.– Appalachian State University, which will present a project called The Solar Homestead.– Middlebury College. Solar Homestead, a reinvention of the New England farmhouse.– Purdue University, which will present a project called flex/home.– The Southern California Institute of Architecture and California Institute of Technology, whose project is called CH:IP.– Ghent University (Team Belgium), whose project is called E-Cube– University of Calgary (Team Canada), which will present a house called Nitohkskapi.– Tongji University (Team China), with a house it calls Y-BOX.– Rutgers University and New Jersey Institute of Technology (Team New Jersey), which will present its eNJoy! New Jersey Solar House.– The City College of New York (Team New York), which will present a project called The Solar Roofpod.last_img read more

In God They Trust

first_img“Like the 63 nayanmars (Tamil Shaivaite saints), you have been given the 63 seats. You should accept it with the same amount of bhakti like the nayanmars,” declared M. Karunanidhi while climbing down from his three-day-long game of brinksmanship over seat-sharing with the Congress.(From left) Stalin, Rajathi and Kanimozhi with Karunanidhi (sitting)The invocation of religion by the staunchly atheist DMK patriarch reveals his acute vulnerability. This is not the first time that Karunanidhi has played the politics of threat and blackmail with an ally. He has done it before with the UPA and he did it earlier with the NDA. He is used to coming out on top, but in this latest battle with the Congress, it would seem that he has finally lost, whatever the pretence might be.The 2G scam has taken a heavy toll on the DMK and the Kalaignar. More than former telecom minister A. Raja, the ageing DMK chief is worried about the fallout of the scam on immediate members of his family. The corridors of Delhi are abuzz with talk that the CBI may summon his daughter Kanimozhi, a Rajya Sabha MP, and wife Rajathi for questioning in the fast-expanding probe into the 2G scam. The direct implication of either Kanimozhi or Rajathi in the scam will be disastrous for the party and for Karunanidhi personally. CBI will submit a status report to the Supreme Court on March 15 and a chargesheet on March 31. Karunanidhi’s decision to accept the 63- seat demand of the Congress, after threatening to withdraw his ministers from the UPA Government over the same demand, came only after he received assurances from the Congress on his family and the 2G probe, say sources involved in the negotiations.advertisementAssurances from the Congress are clearly not enough in difficult times. The first family of Tamil Nadu politics, in a sharp departure from the party’s traditions, is seeking divine help and astrological advice in its effort to win the Assembly elections, despite all the negative publicity that the party has earned from the 2G scam.As a leading scriptwriter in the 1960s, Karunanidhi had penned fiery dialogues in film after film that conveyed a strong sense of rationality, and questioned several superstitions. That was in keeping with the tradition of the Dravidian movement, which was built on the foundation of rationalist ideology. Today, the DMK patriarch sports a yellow shawl, some say on the suggestion of an astrologer.Karunanidhi with his family at the millennium celebration of Thanjavur’s Big Temple in 2010It isn’t just Karunanidhi who is looking to astrologers for advice. The DMK leader’s second family (wife Dayalu and son M.K. Stalin) and third family (wife Rajathi and daughter Kanimozhi) have also sought the advice of astrologers. The predictions of one family astrologer will bring little comfort to the beleaguered family. “I had already predicted this downfall for the DMK a few years ago. Based on the stars, I had advised them to perform certain poojas at some of the famous temples, only to slow down the effect,” a family astrologer told India Today on the condition of anonymity. He says though the stars are good for Karunanidhi now, the stars of his son Stalin and daughter Kanimozhi do not show signs of victory.Recently, Rajathi embarked on a spiritual tour across Tamil Nadu. A few weeks ago, she visited the famous Nellaiyappar temple in Tirunelveli to offer prayers. Accompanied by state it Minister Poongothai Aladi Aruna, she offered prayers to Goddess Sri Gandhimathy and Lord Nellaiappar (Lord Shiva) at the temple. Priests performed archana and special deeparadhana during her 50-minute visit. Rajathi also visited the Nava Tirupathi (nine sacred Vaishnavite) temples near Tirunelveli during her state-wide tour.Karunanidhi has been following other superstitions in the last year. During the millennium celebrations at Thanjavur’s big temple in 2010, he avoided the main entrance because of a political jinx. It is believed that Indira Gandhi had to step down from power and M.G. Ramachandran suffered a stroke after they visited the big temple through the main entrance. That has prompted political leaders visiting the Shiva shrine to enter from the side entrance instead.Recent events have only strengthened a growing trend towards religiosity in Karunanidhi’s clan. During the 2009 Lok Sabha polls, the wily patriarch’s son and DMK strongman from Madurai, M.K. Alagiri, launched his election campaign from a famous temple in Madurai after receiving full temple honours. Kanimozhi visited the famous Vaishnavite shrine Shri Rangam a few months ago. She and her mother Rajathi offered prayers at the Punnainallur Mariamman temple in Thanjavur when they visited the city for the temple’s millennium celebrations in 2010.advertisementKarunanidhi’s heir apparent and state Deputy Chief Minister Stalin visited the godman Sathya Sai Baba to seek his blessings. Rajathi even touched his feet. Kalaignar has also met Mata Amritanandamayi and Isha foundation’s Jaggi Vasudev in the recent past. When questioned about his new found affiliation to religious and spiritual leaders, Karunanidhi said he found nothing wrong in coordinating with religious persons willing to contribute to the welfare of the people.Hindu mythological metaphors are playing an important part in the DMK’s election campaign-there are several instances where Karunanidhi and Stalin are pictured as Lord Krishna and Arjuna, from the Bhagvad Gita, in the party’s election posters. The DMK has on earlier occasions used religious metaphors to propagate its own government’s programmes. In October 2009, an advertisement in the print media marking the launch of the government’s flagship medical insurance scheme had the Hindu god of death ‘Yama’ on a ferocious bull, slinging a rope on an old man in his death bed. But just before Yama’s rope reaches the old man, a hand with a full-sleeved white shirt and betraying just a hint of a yellow shawl grabs the rope to save the ailing man. The advertisement read, ‘Kaalamveesum kaiyetrai thadukka kalaignar kaapeetu thittam’, meaning Kalaignar insurance scheme to thwart the rope of Yama.For the moment, it is the Congress that has thwarted what could be 86-year-old Karunanidhi’s last act of drama in a long career in politics. The DMK chief must hope that the theatrics would help drum up the morale of the party rank and file who have the difficult task of defending the party and Raja against corruption charges. Karunanidhi’s brinksmanship with the Congress may have served some purpose in signalling to the cadres that it was the DMK that had the power to spurn the Congress, and therefore still held the upper hand in seat-sharing negotiations.The assurance that he reportedly received from the Congress party on the 2G probe may not mean much since the CBI is reporting directly to the Supreme Court on the investigation. But the DMK chief has few options. He is facing the prospect of losing power to Jayalalithaa. His arch-rival will go after his family tainted by the 2G scam. Losing power at the Centre at the same time would only make the DMK more vulnerable. That is a scenario from which even gods would find it difficult to rescue Karunandhi, his wives, sons and daughter. After six decades in politics, Karunanidhi should have known that reality when he finally accepted the Congress party’s “unreasonable” demand for 63 seats on March 8.- with Anand Natarajanlast_img read more
