Rugby World Cup Daily – Nearly there

first_imgThursday Sep 8, 2011 Rugby World Cup Daily – Nearly there If you’re in New Zealand, or on that time zone, today is the day. If not, it’s just a few hours of sleep then an exciting morning for the rest of us, as we’ve got New Zealand vs Tonga to look forward to. In today’s RWC Daily, the first round is previewed. Before that though, there is the usual opening ceremony, which lets be honest, can be a bore on occasion. It’s all about kick off and nobody is really that bothered about all the colour, dancing, and displays of local culture. Having said that, at times we can be blown away by what a host nation puts on, so it’ll be interesting to see what Eden Park has in store.Pool B is featured in the video too, as Scotland face Romania and England take on Argentina, the latter of which should be a fascinating game. For now though it’s all about the opening match, as Tonga have been preparing to face the almighty AB’s in their own backyard.There’s a large Tongan following in New Zealand though, so the small nation will be looking to give the hosts a real battle, especially up front where they bring a lot of European experience to the pack.The man with the weight of a nation on his shoulders, Richie McCaw, has final say as he talks about great  expectations. In is third and no doubt final World Cup, McCaw will be doing everthing in his power to ensure that his beloved countrymen aren’t disappointed come October 23rd. On a sidenote, our new Rugbydump App is live and racking up the downloads.

There he worked on in-line monitoring systems for manufacturing with composite materials.In 2018, he spent the summer as an IACMI intern at TPI Composites in Newton, Iowa where he helped start up a new composites manufacturing plant that will produce composite bus bodies for Proterra, an electric bus company.In 2019, Brayden’s IACMI internship took him to Port Angeles, Washington and the Composite Recycling Technology Center (CRTC). At the CRTC, he assisted in the development of a materials characterization testing procedure to better identify unknown composite materials so they can be better used and recycled.The next stop for Brayden is Pasadena and Caltech, where he earned his master of science in space engineering degree earlier this year and is now pursuing a Ph.D. in space engineering. After earning his doctorate, which Aller plans to have in 2024, it’s on to a career in the aerospace industry.Brayden credits IACMI for sparking his interest in composites.“I will continue to work with composites in the near future,” he explains, “and part of my graduate research will involve working with composite materials in the context of space structures.”“We are committed to cultivating the workforce of the future by offering opportunities for students to become immersed in real-world learning experiences through programs such as our internship program,” said IACMI Workforce Director Joannie Harmon. “Our program is unique in that we retain our interns year after year, offering them a variety of experiences to have a better understanding of the different career options available.” STAFF REPORT First Heatwave Expected Next Week STAFF REPORT Pasadena’s ‘626 Day’ Aims to Celebrate City, Boost Local Economy Subscribe Home of the Week: Unique Pasadena Home Located on Madeline Drive, Pasadena Business Newslast_img read more

Diving Into New Mortgage Data

first_imgHome / Daily Dose / Diving Into New Mortgage Data  Print This Post Nicole Casperson is the Associate Editor of DS News and MReport. She graduated from Texas Tech University where she received her M.A. in Mass Communications and her B.A. in Journalism. Casperson previously worked as a graduate teaching instructor at Texas Tech’s College of Media and Communications. Her thesis will be published by the International Communication Association this fall. To contact Casperson, e-mail: [email protected] On Monday, the Data & Analytics division of Black Knight, Inc. released its latest Mortgage Monitor Report for November 2017.According to the data, as of the end of Q3 2017, 42 million homeowners with a mortgage now have an aggregate of nearly $5.4 trillion in equity available to borrow against.Ben Graboske, EVP of Data & Analytics at Black Knight, said that this represents an all-time high, and up more than $3 trillion since the bottom of the market in 2012—as over 80 percent of all mortgage holders now have available equity to tap via first-lien cash-out refinances or home equity lines of credit (HELOCs).“We’ve noted in the past that as interest rates rise from historic lows, HELOCs represented an increasingly attractive option for these homeowners to access their available equity without relinquishing interest rates below today’s prevailing rate on their first-lien mortgages,” Graboske explained. “However, with the recently passed tax reform package, interest on these lines of credit will no longer be deductible, which increases the post-tax expense of HELOCs for those who itemize.”There are many factors to consider before a borrower determines which method of equity extraction is the most economical, but Graboske noted that in many cases for those with high unpaid principal balances (UPB) who are taking out lower line amounts, the math still favors HELOCs.“However—assuming interest on cash-out refinances remains deductible—for low-to-moderate UPB borrowers taking out larger amounts of equity, the post-tax math for those who will still itemize under the increased standard deduction may now favor cash-out refinances instead, even if the result is a slight increase to first-lien interest rates,” said Graboske.The report also takes an in-depth look at how the increase in equity, driven by rising home prices, has also continued to decrease the population of underwater borrowers.Black Knight’s analysis notes that the number of underwater borrowers declined by 800,000 over the first nine months of 2017—representing a 37 percent decline in negative equity. Only 2.7 percent of homeowners with a mortgage, which is an estimated 1.36 million borrowers, now owe more than their home is worth, which is the lowest rate since 2006.Additionally, Black Knight’s data found that the national delinquency rate jumped by 2.5 percent from last month, attributing the increase to “typical seasonality.” Meanwhile, November experienced the second-fewest foreclosure starts in 2017 and the third fewest of any month since 2004. In addition, prepayment activity dropped by 12.41 percent month-over-month, falling to 31.47 percent below last year’s level.To view the full report, click here.
