While movers from these cities cited a need to find less expensive living quarters in general, Redfin found that these residents were not moving to the city of Los Angeles proper. Rather, they were moving to the county, to more affordable markets like Riverside, in the Inland Empire.The move out of Denver is a sort of B-side to the migration to Denver just a few years ago. “Denver peaked at 40,000 net domestic migrations in 2015, meaning that many more people moved to Denver than left,” the report stated. “Looking ahead, we expect Denver to see a negative net migration, or a loss of residents, in the 2019 Census.”Meanwhile, in Seattle, the Census data reveal peak net domestic migration in 2016, but since last October, “more Seattleites are looking at homes elsewhere than the other way around,” the report stated.The ironic part is that almost half the residents of Eugene who looked at new homes in Q1 looked mainly to Seattle as their next market. Last year, 9 percent of Seattle residents looked elsewhere. The national average for outflow in Q1 was 24 percent.Phoenix was another top destination for both Seattle and Denver in the quarter. That city had the largest net gain looking to move to the area from elsewhere, Redfin found. Unsurprisingly, the interest in Phoenix had to do with affordability. The median home sale price in Phoenix was $257,000 in April. That compares to $415,000 in Denver and $580,000 in Seattle. “The rate of home-price growth in Denver and Seattle is staggering, with Denver up 64 percent and Seattle up 76 percent over the last five years—more than double the national growth rate of 37 percent,” the report stated. “They also both consistently hold the top spots for the fastest housing market, in terms of how long homes stay on the market. These competitive forces serve as a likely cause for the uptick in out-migration.” in Daily Dose, Featured, Market Studies, News Governmental Measures Target Expanded Access to Affordable Housing 2 days ago Scott Morgan is a multi-award-winning journalist and editor based out of Texas.

AFCON 2019 QUALIFIER*To be flown to Asaba today ahead of Friday’s dead-rubber clashDuro Ikhazuagbe Despite not having anything to play for beyond pride, the Pirates of Seychelles flew into Abuja yesterday for Friday’s 2019 Africa Cup of Nations qualifying clash with the Super Eagles.According to Ademola Olajire, the Communications Director of the Nigeria Football Federation (NFF), Seychelles’ 29-man delegation that flew into Abuja aboard an Ethiopian Airline flight yesterday afternoon is to be flown to Asaba, venue of the dead-rubber game this morning.Super Eagles emerged Group E leaders on 10 points and a ticket to the finals. South Africa’s Bafana Bafana who are second behind Eagles are having nine points with Libya third on seven points. Seychelles’ Pirates are out of reckoning on just a point.Only South Africa’s victory over Libya away in Tunisia on Friday can drop Nigeria to the runners-up position of the group going into Friday’s Draw ceremony at CAF’s headquarters in Cairo.Meanwhile, Super Eagles handlers now have full compliments of all the 23 players invited for the AFCON 2019 qualifier against Seychelles.Reports from Asaba yesterday evening indicated that the last five players to join Eagles camp in Asaba include; Hapoel Beer Sheva’s John Ogu, Stoke City’s Oghenekaro Etebo, Anorthosis Famagusta goalkeeper Francis Uzoho, Wolfsburg loanee Victor Osimhen and Galatasaray forward Henry Onyekuru.Media Officer of the Super Eagles, Toyin Ibitoye confirmed training took place at 4.45pm with all the 23 players present at the Stephen Keshi Stadium, venue of Friday’s clash with the Pirates. The training was open to the media and fans.Eagles are scheduled to hold three more training sessions before stepping out onto the Stephen Keshi Stadium turf for the AFCON qualifier on Friday.Coach Gernot Rohr is likely to pay special attention to Akwa United’s Ndifreke Effiong and Brighton’s Leon Balogun due to question marks surrounding their fitness levels.Effiong sustained a knee injury last weekend in a Nigeria Professional Football League clash with Heartland in Okigwe while Balogun has been inactive since February 6 due to a shoulder injury.Speaking with reporters after the first training session in Asaba yesterday, Rohr appears to have made a U-turn on completely ruling out the home-based players from the AFCON 2019 party in Egypt later in June.”We have invited Effiong from Akwa United, so we have four home-based players,” said Rohr at a media parley attended by allnigeriasoccer.com.”We have Udo, the captain of the U-20 team, who played very well in the last U-20 AFCON, then we also have Ezenwa and Valentine who is a tall defender and good.”There is competition for our list for the Africa Cup of Nations.”The matches against Seychelles and Egypt should serve as an audition for Ikouwem Udo, Valentine Ozornwafor and Ndifreke Effiong to earn spots on the AFCON roster, given that Ikechukwu Ezenwa will be heading to Egypt as one of the three goalkeepers.After the AFCON 2019 clash with Seychelles, Super Eagles are to also play Pharaohs of Egypt four days later in an international friendly on Tuesday, March 25 as part of the team’s preparations for the finals.Share this:FacebookRedditTwitterPrintPinterestEmailWhatsAppSkypeLinkedInTumblrPocketTelegram

November 18, 2019 In an interview with CasinoBeats.com, Simon Dorsen, director of gaming at Okto Group, has claimed that ‘regulation will be where the buck starts and stops’ in 2020. Discussing the importance of paying attention to the regulatory hurdles throughout the coming year, Dorsen delved into Europe’s regulatory framework, particularly to suggest how different licenses are required to limit the movement of funds between retail and online.The director of gaming stated: “As ever, regulation will be where the buck starts and stops, and the importance of paying attention to regulatory hurdles in 2020 should never be underestimated by operators. Europe in particular is a true patchwork of regulatory regimes. Separate licenses for online and retail that limit movement of funds between the channels are essential. “This is none more so the case than when it comes to AML and KYC procedures. Gaming operators who are scrambling to solve these solutions themselves would do well to invite an expert to provide the answer for them. By bringing in an already certified solution, you’re good to go across multiple markets with a ready-made provider that already has the required regulatory approval.” As well as advising gaming operators of the benefits that could be provided via the inclusion of experts in 2020, Dorsen concluded by looking back on 2019 and discussed some of the technological advancements that will shape the industry moving forward. He added: “It’s been a great year for new technology, especially when it comes to mobile gaming. The wallet revolution is already mainstream and gaming and betting operators are becoming increasingly interested in understanding how they can leverage our OKTO.WALLET to streamline operations and minimise costs.“When it comes to the customer, we’re seeing a rapid uptake. Mobile transactions already account for 54 per cent of digital payments in Europe and are growing globally by 10 per cent. With technology advancing at an even quicker pace than adoption, payment solutions are offering a whole new level of convenience for customers dedicated to reducing friction in gaming transactions. “Fast payouts build brand trust with the player, driving repeat betting, visitation and deposit ratios, and I’m looking forward to seeing operators continuing to capitalise on that in 2020.”
A walk-on quarterback recently added to LSU’s roster is probably the most-appropriately named player in the history of the program. Meet Tiger Scheyd, a 6-foot, 179-pound redshirt freshman QB who became a member of Les Miles’ program this spring. Scheyd is surely deserving of his spot on the roster, but even if he’s not, his first name alone is reason enough to become a member of the Tigers. Momma we made it! pic.twitter.com/5qDcCtmPgy— Tiger Scheyd (@TigerScheyd) February 19, 2015Scheyd is from Miramar Beach, Fla.. He played his high school football at Fort Walton Beach. LSU opens its season Sept. 5 against McNeese State.
New Delhi: As the 2019 fiscal nears its end, the Finance Ministry’s fiscal managers say the revised deficit target of 3.4 per cent is under control even as the government is braving to bear shortfalls in both direct and indirect taxes by lowering ‘non essential’ expenditures. Sources in the Ministry said that any shortfall in revenues is being met by cutting non-essential expenditure, suggesting that despite the forthcoming elections, the government will not slip on its fiscal commitment.

The final tax figures, both direct and indirect, are yet to come. “The fiscal deficit target of 3.4 per cent of GDP will be met… Any additional outgo on account of subsidies, be it food, oil or fertiliser and extra payout, will be met through budgetary resources and there may be some pushover to the next fiscal but these are not major,” the sources said. Also Read – Food grain output seen at 140.57 mt in current fiscal on monsoon boostThe yields on the benchmark 10-year bond is still tracking at 7.4 per cent, indicating the market also sees fiscal control. The sources added that the Finance Ministry had asked the financial advisors of various ministries to stick to their budgeted expenditures estimates and not seek any additional allocation. Subsequently, North Block had advised a cut in non-essential non-plan expenditure for all ministries and departments. The government may just meet the revised fiscal deficit target set at 3.4 per cent of the gross domestic product (GDP) for the current financial year (FY2018-19), they said. “There may be a shortfall of about Rs 40,000 crore in indirect tax collections, mainly on account of GST, while direct tax collection may also fall short by around Rs 70,000 crore,” a source said. The government’s mop-up target for direct tax collection during the current fiscal as per the revised estimate is pegged at Rs 12 lakh crore. On the other hand, the indirect tax collection target for the current fiscal was revised to Rs 11.47 lakh crore from Rs 13.71 lakh crore budgeted initially. “Fiscal deficit target would be met as a shortfall in indirect tax collection would be compensated by lower government expenditure,” said Finance Secretary Subhash Chandra Garg, who is also the Secretary of Department of Economic Affairs. The budgeted fiscal deficit target was 3.3 per cent of GDP at the beginning of 2018-19 and was later revised to 3.4 per cent of GDP while preparing the interim budget, mainly because of an expectation of higher payout on basis of the direct income scheme for farmers. The fiscal deficit at the end of January stood at Rs 7.7 lakh crore, or 121 per cent of the revised estimate of Rs 6.3 lakh crore as total expenditure overshot revenue receipts, according to from the comptroller general of accounts. In the H2 of current fiscal, the government had cut borrowings by Rs 70,000 crore.
NEW DELHI: Sumitra Mahajan, the outgoing Lok Sabha Speaker, is the latest BJP veteran to declare that she will not contest the national election starting next week. Making her resentment clear in a letter released by her office, the senior parliamentarian from Madhya Pradesh said she had “freed her party” from a difficult choice.While announcing candidates for Madhya Pradesh, the BJP had held off on naming anyone for Indore, which had left its long-time representative Sumitra Mahajan in uncertainty for weeks. “There were speculations, and so I decided to end them and free the party to make its choice. I will not contest the Lok Sabha elections,” she said. Mahajan, however, maintained that she would continue to work for the party and campaign for it. “The party (BJP) had not been able to name a candidate (from Indore Lok Sabha seat) for so many days, and there were speculations if someone over 75 years of age will be fielded. So I decided to end all this,” she said. Bharatiya Janata Party (BJP) president Amit Shah had in an interview to The Week magazine on Thursday stated that it was his party’s decision not to give Lok Sabha poll tickets to those above 75 years of age, leading to veteran leaders like L K Advani and Murali Manohar Joshi being unceremoniously dropped. Though he had not named Mahajan, the outgoing Lok Sabha speaker also falls in the same age bracket. Mahajan was first elected to the Lok Sabha from Indore in 1989 and has won all the seven consecutive elections. She was a minister of state in the Atal Bihari Vajpayee government, holding portfolios of human resources development, telecom and petroleum between 1999 and 2004. When the BJP swept to power again in 2014, she was named the Speaker of the Lok Sabha. Mahajan also issued a short press statement questioning why the party has not been able to name a candidate till now. “Possibly the party is hesitating to take a decision. I had discussed this issue with senior party leaders and left it to them to take an appropriate decision,” she said, adding, “It seems they still have some doubts in their mind. So I declare that I do not wish to contest the Lok Sabha elections.” The party, she said, can now make its decision without any hesitation. Stating that she had received immense love and support from people of Indore, she hoped the BJP would quickly make up its mind for its candidate from Indore and end this uncertainty.
Balurghat: The department of District Land and Land Reforms of South Dinajpur organised a blood donation camp at Balurghat collectorate office on Thursday.A source said this was for the first time a state-run department extended helping hands to end the crisis at the blood banks of the district hospital.

The step will encourage others to donate blood,” she said. District Land and Land Reforms officer Pranab Kumar Ghosh said: “Blood donation is a noble gesture. We thought of conducting a blood donation camp in Balurghat to meet the shortage of blood in hospitals and blood banks.” The blood units were sealed and dispatched and the volunteers and hospital staff cleaned up the venue after the campaign ended. Chief medical officer of health (South Dinajpur) Dr Sukumar Dey was present during the programme. District information and cultural officer Shantanu Chakraborty said government officers actively took part in the programme.
Co-offensive coordinator and quarterbacks coach Ryan Day speaks to the media on March 21. Credit: Jacob Myers | Assistant Sports EditorOhio State lost long-time college coaches Ed Warinner and Luke Fickell after the 2016-17 season. While some fans cheered the departure of Warinner and wished Fickell well in Cincinnati, the pedigree of OSU coaches got a whole lot more impressive with the addition of Ryan Day and Bill Davis.While Ryan Day will help guide redshirt senior J.T. Barrett through his last year in Columbus, Bill Davis will be tasked with leading the linebacker unit, arguably the pride and joy of the last few Buckeye football teams. Also taking on co-offensive coordinator duties with newly hired Kevin Wilson, Day most likely will be the coach who is most closely observed by fans after the OSU passing game struggled for the second straight season. Still, his time spent as the quarterbacks coach under coach Chip Kelly with both the Philadelphia Eagles and the San Francisco 49ers last season should help.Just three days into practice, Day sees a close similarity between OSU and NFL programs.“Real close,” he said on Tuesday. “First off, because the guys who are running around this field are like NFL players. From the skill guys to the guys up front, the guys here have done an unbelievable job recruiting. So, the talent level here is just like a lot of the NFL teams. And that’s what’s most impressive when you get out here for the first three days.”While Day might feel at home, he still faces a tough task in morphing Barrett back into the passer he was during his redshirt freshman season, when he threw for 34 touchdowns and completed 64.7 percent of his passes. Day sees the potential in Barrett to return to the form that pushed him into Heisman consideration, and is using his NFL experience to help the Scarlet and Gray signal caller.“I think that I was lucky enough to coach those guys for the last couple years in the NFL and focus on quarterback play and fundamentals,” Day said. “I really impart that to him every day and just kind of relaying some of that information to him. I think he really appreciates that. But he’s also been coached at a high level to this point too, so it’s just really building upon it at this point.”Day was an offensive coordinator in 2013 and 2014 with Boston College. During those seasons, the Eagles averaged 27.7 and 26.2 points per game.Linebackers coach Bill Davis speaks to the media on March 21. Credit: Jacob Myers | Assistant Sports EditorDavis brings in more “next level” coaching experience than Day, most notably as a coach under NFL defensive masterminds Bill Cowher, Dick LeBeau, Wade Phillips, Marvin Lewis and Dom Capers. Entering his 26th season of coaching, Davis has belonged to coaching staffs of nine different NFL teams.Players have been feeling the differences in the way he coaches, and compare it to an authentic, NFL style.“Definitely. The first day, the first meeting, you could tell,” junior linebacker Jerome Baker said. “This has to be a NFL meeting room because, the way he coach(es), his style especially, is geared toward pro athletes. You could tell that he’d been in the NFL for a few years.”Davis has coached numerous notable NFL linebackers, such as D’Qwell Jackson, Connor Barwin and Kevin Greene. Like Day, Davis also sees similarities in the OSU program and the NFL.“As much as it can be,” Davis said. “The difference is the classes that the young men have to go to, we don’t have in the NFL. So the structure of the work is a little bit different. But what separates the Ohio State guys is the total growing of the man. I really am in awe of how coach Meyer and his staff and the system grows a human being, not just a football player. So what we found in the NFL is when Ohio State guys come, their mental toughness, because they go through this system of the grind, of hard, they come in so mentally tough, it’s tough to trip up Ohio State guys. So that’s why you see the young guys succeeding in the NFL. Because the talent level is the same.”There is still plenty of time for things to change, but the overall impression the new coaches have made on the staff has been positive. The impact of Day and Davis will be on display on April 15 in Ohio Stadium during the spring game, with kickoff scheduled for 12:30 p.m.
According to Callum Wilson’s former Coventry manager Mark Robins, he has shown ‘character and determination’ to bounce back from injuries and score on his England debut.Wilson was on target on his England debut as they defeated the United States 3-0 in Wayne Rooney’s 120th and final cap.The Bournemouth striker started his football career at Coventry and despite series of injuries, scored 22 goals in 49 appearances between 2009 and 2014.Robins, who managed Wilson at Coventry says his debut is a proud moment for the West Midlands club.“When I was here the first time around Callum had quite a few lengthy injuries and to come through that and get back to playing, never mind to the level he’s performing at, shows character and determination,” Robins told Sky Sports.Crouch: Liverpool could beat Man United to Jadon Sancho Andrew Smyth – September 14, 2019 Peter Crouch wouldn’t be surprised to see Jadon Sancho end up at Liverpool one day instead of his long-term pursuers Manchester United.“Eddie Howe takes a lot of credit for that because he has molded him and developed him again and obviously he deserves his opportunity in the England shirt because of his performances for Bournemouth.“He’s taken that well and I was delighted for him, I was willing him on to score last night.“I would have liked to see Wayne Rooney score a goal as well with the stick he’s taken for playing in a game like that.“These players who have been stalwarts for England, who have been top, top players and who have broken records for goal scoring deserve that recognition.”
