first_img Rector Knoxville, TN Ya no son extranjeros: Un diálogo acerca de inmigración Una conversación de Zoom June 22 @ 7 p.m. ET By Mary Frances SchjonbergPosted Sep 13, 2012 Neil Armstrong smiles for the camera after returning to the Apollo II command module on July 20, 1969, after spending two-and-a-half hours on the moon.[Episcopal News Service] The United States honored “the first human being to walk on another world” at Washington National Cathedral Sept. 13 with a combination of Scripture, a voice from the past, tributes, traditional hymns and Frank Sinatra.Neil Armstrong, 82, “can now finally put out [his] hand and touch the face of God,” Eugene A. Cernan, the Apollo 17 mission commander and last man to walk on the moon, said during the service.Armstrong died Aug. 25 of complications resulting from cardiovascular procedures, according to a family statement. He had undergone heart bypass surgery earlier in August in Cincinnati, Ohio, near where he lived. A private memorial service was held there on Aug. 31.Armstrong, a Navy pilot, is to be buried at sea on Sept. 14. The location and details of that service have not been disclosed, however one version of such a service can be seen here.The cathedral was filled with people who heard Armstrong described during the service as a humble man who never sought the limelight, even after having made history by being the first person to set foot on the moon. On July 20, 1969, Armstrong and co-pilot Col. Edwin E. “Buzz” Aldrin Jr. put their lunar landing craft, Eagle, down a rocky stretch of land near the southwestern shore of the moon’s Sea of Tranquility.The first Scripture reading during the service was Exodus 3:1-15 in which Moses is forever changed by his encounter with God in the burning bush. Diocese of Washington Bishop Mariann Edgar Budde said during her homily that most people assumed that Armstrong’s burning-bush moment were the two-and-a-half hours he spent on the moon.Washington National Cathedral’s Space Window has a small sliver of moon rock as its centerpiece. Neil Armstrong and fellow Apollo 11 astronauts Buzz Aldrin and Michael Collins presented the approximately 3.6 billion years-old basalt chip to the cathedral in 1974. Photo/Washington National CathedralHowever, she said, the astronaut downplayed that experience and instead often spoke about experiencing the fragile-appearing earth from his spacecraft. Armstrong, she said, worked “for the survival of the only planet we human beings call home.”NASA Administrator Charles F. Bolden Jr. called Armstrong “a true American hero” and “a brave and humble servant who never stopped dreaming.”Cernan, who described Armstrong as a “world icon” and “the first human being to walk on another world,” said the astronaut called himself “the tip of the arrow” launched by the 400,000 NASA workers who, with the American people, gave him “the opportunity to call the moon his home.”Much was made at the time of how the fuel gauge on the lunar landing module was on empty before Armstrong and Aldrin landed the Eagle. Cernan said that when Armstrong was later asked about those moments, he’d reply “‘Well, when the gauge says empty we all know there is a gallon or two left over.’” The audience laughed as Cernan recalled the comment.He described how on each of three journeys he, Armstrong and fellow astronaut Jim Lovell made to Afghanistan and Iraq to visit soldiers, Armstrong was less concerned about his celebrity status than how the troops were faring.“He embodied all that is good and all that is great about America,” Cernan said.Former Secretary of the Treasury John W. Snow recalled the legend he knew as a friend and “a man with an unusually strong and clear sense of his calling in life” not as an astronaut but a Purdue University-trained engineer who wanted to improve flight.“I think he, indeed, had been put on earth to fly,” Snow said, calling Armstrong “the most reluctant of heroes.”Neil Armstrong speaks on the 50th anniversary of John Glenn’s first spaceflight in February 2012.Astronaut Michael Collins, now a retired Air Force major general who remained in lunar orbit while Armstrong and Aldrin were on the moon, led the prayers during the service. He thanked God “for your servant Neil Armstrong, who with courage and humility first set foot upon the moon. Following his example, save us from arrogance, lest we forget that our achievements are grounded in you; and by the grace of your Holy Spirit, protect our travels beyond the reaches of the earth, that we may glory ever more in the wonder of your creation.”The service’s procession entered with the congregation singing “Praise, my soul, the king of heaven,” which includes the words “sun and moon, bow down before him, dwellers all in time and space.”The first reading was an audio recording of an excerpt from President John F. Kennedy’s so-called “moon speech” delivered on Sept. 12, 1962, at Rice University in Houston, Texas. During that speech, Kennedy called for landing an American on the moon before the end of the 1960s.“As we set sail we ask God’s blessing on the most hazardous and dangerous and greatest adventure on which man has ever embarked,” Kennedy said.The U.S. Navy Band’s Sea Chanters sang “Eternal Father, strong to save,” which is known as the Naval Hymn and is included in the Episcopal Church’s Hymnal 1982 as hymn 608 and later jazz singer-songwriter Diana Krall, seated at a grand piano, sang a quiet rendition of Frank Sinatra’s “Fly Me to the Moon.”At the beginning of her blessing, Budde told the congregation to “go forth into the world in peace; search the cosmos, it is the Lord’s; and may the God of all strength nerve you with the courage of the astronauts.”An on-demand video version of the Armstrong service is here.— The Rev.

first_img#ShutDownStewart march at immigrant detention camp in Georgia.WW photo: Jimmy RaynorA wave of terror is hitting the migrant and refugee communities in the United States. Violent roundups are being carried out at this very moment by the Trump administration, pushed by the racist ideology coming from Trump and the likes of his chief strategist, arch-reactionary Steve Bannon.Immigration and Customs Enforcement agents from the Department of Homeland Security are being unleashed around the country, aimed especially at Black and Brown people in every small town and large city where communities of migrants live.The results are a cruel and ominous attempt to demonize immigrant workers, expel both the undocumented and documented from this country, and instill such fear that workers not rounded up are driven so deeply underground they virtually “disappear.”Some immigrant advocates liken it to a police state being imposed on immigrant workers.Trump/ICE planThe Trump administration announced on Feb. 21 plans to carry out his longstanding campaign goals on immigration.The current guidelines were announced even as a second draft of Trump’s order banning people from mainly Muslim countries is awaited. Fortunately, his first attempt was knocked down by the people’s movement and by those among the capitalists who profit from a more open immigration policy.The administration’s goal is to carry out and enforce immigration laws much more aggressively than before. They aim to unleash the full force of the government to “find, arrest and deport” the undocumented.The administration says it wants to “unshackle” the power of ICE agents — an ironic term, as they clearly are itching to shackle immigrant workers.This vile campaign against immigrant workers, especially the undocumented, did not start with Trump. The modern anti-immigrant campaign began in 2006. Each administration since — Republican and Democrat — has carried out campaigns against immigrant workers.Despite some liberal propaganda, this campaign is nothing new in U.S. history.  During economic booms, the capitalist class welcomes cheap, vulnerable labor. During hard times when undocumented labor is not as needed, there’s a campaign to demonize and deport.President Barack Obama, a Democrat, deported more immigrants than any previous U.S. president, over 2 million workers, earning him the title “Deporter-in-Chief.”But the Trump administration takes this anti-worker campaign even further.Here are some of the proposals in Trump’s new guidelines: The Trump directive will strip immigrants of privacy protections guaranteed in the past. Other administrations provided some legal protections for information collected by DHS. It was not shared with other agencies, such as the Internal Revenue Service. But it will be now. Alleged crimes will now be publicized. According to immigration lawyers, this jeopardizes those who had applied for legal status, as the alleged information turned in can now be used to deport them.The guidelines will revive Section 287(g) of the Immigration and Nationality Act, which calls for local police officers to enforce immigration laws. As Omar Jadwat, director of an immigrant rights project, stated, “When you tell state and local police that their job is to do immigration enforcement, it translates into the unwarranted and illegal targeting of people” because of their race, language and the color of their skin. (New York Times, Feb. 21)Trump is threatening to cut federal funds from cities that have declared themselves “sanctuary cities,” where police allegedly will not act as immigration agents. As immigrant activists point out, however, the concept of sanctuary cities has been more propaganda than reality.At the same time, the government willŸ  build even more detention facilites to hold the increased number of those detained. This mirrors the mass incarceration in the U.S. of primarily Black and Brown people, which already amounts to major humanitarian violations and a crisis.The directive  speeds up deportations by expanding a program that lets government officials bypass due process protections, such as court hearings. Under Obama, “expedited removal” was used only for immigrants arrested within 100 miles of the border who had been in the country for less than 14 days. It will now include any undocumented people who have been in the country for up to two years, regardless of where they were picked up.The guidelines also  violate Mexico’s sovereignty by not guaranteeing that every worker deported to Mexico is Mexican. This means that Hondurans, Haitians or other non-Mexican deportees will be deported to Mexico, making their situation even more precarious.The new rules expand the definition of “criminal aliens.”  Now anyone who crossed into the U.S. without papers or has used a false Social Security number can be considered a “criminal” and be deported.The guidelines also call for hiring at least 10,000 more ICE agents and could even empower tens of thousands of National Guard to enforce immigration law. But no new immigration judges are expected to be hired, further strengthening the lack of due process.Finally, Trump’s new guidelines call for creating an office in ICE to help families of those supposedly killed by undocumented immigrants. This office will be known as “Victims of Immigration Crime Engagement (VOICE).”Immigrants falsely defamedBoth as a candidate and now as president, Trump appeals to his reactionary, nativist base by painting a picture of undocumented workers as “violent criminals” and members of “drug cartels and gangs” who have carried out a wave of crimes against “U.S. citizens.”The creation of VOICE is totally offensive to the people in this country who have been victimized by heinous police terror, unleashed primarily against African Americans and other people of color. Killer cops remain free — often still on the payroll — after shooting down or choking to death innocent people, no matter their age or mental capacity.  Where are the government offices demanding justice for them?Trump and the Steve Bannons in this country cry that “law and order will be restored” and tell supporters that the undocumented fill jobs that should belong to them, drain public resources and step over the line for visas that others wait years for.None of this is true. The vast majority of the undocumented in this country, like those around the world, are victims of forced migration. They are forced to leave their countries by Washington and Wall Street’s policies of military and economic intervention.Study after study documents that fewer crimes are committed in immigrant communities than in those of people born here. But more than that, crimes by the state overwhelm any infractions by workers.Despite how Trump’s proposed guidelines will be implemented, they nonetheless have led to a chilling climate for immigrant workers. Besides the undocumented, people with documents, those with Deferred Action for Childhood Arrivals status (who arrived as children), plus those in the system awaiting their day in court are all in jeopardy of being detained and deported.ICE agents who are ideologically right-wing and outspoken supporters of Trump can now pick up and remove anyone convicted or even just charged with a criminal offense —  for something as minor as a broken tail light. Any person of color lacking the right “papers” is in danger.Parents in fear of deportation are keeping their children out of school. Immigrants are staying in their homes, which especially hurts businesses owned by immigrants. Illnesses are not being treated as workers fear going to a hospital or doctor.This climate of fear now gripping the immigrant community is what is criminal.Stop ICE, stop the rightResistance both inside and outside the immigrant community is phenomenal. In Chicago, principals of some public schools are directing teachers not to let ICE in without warrants and are providing know-your-rights information. In California, groups are blocking ICE buses. Throughout the country, activists are attempting to reach out to their neighbors and friends to get the word out: “You are not alone. We have your back.”This solidarity must be seen a thousand-fold on May Day 2017. Immigrant and U.S.-born, Black, Brown and white, union workers and the unorganized, young and old, women, men and LGBTQ people must all be in the streets on Monday, May 1 — not just to defend immigrant workers’ rights, but all workers’ rights.In order to stop these attacks, in order to defeat the Trump/Pence/Bannon agenda, in order to let the U.S. ruling class know “We will not be pushed back,” May Day 2017 must be a day of no school, no shopping, no work — and unity of all working and oppressed people.FacebookTwitterWhatsAppEmailPrintMoreShare thisFacebookTwitterWhatsAppEmailPrintMoreShare thislast_img read more

They were arrested as they were putting their equipment back in their vehicle and police seized their camera, film and the vehicle.

first_imgEmail NewsLocal NewsCounty Limerick crime statistics ‘don’t stack up’By Alan Jacques – September 21, 2017 3662 Advertisement Man arrested after buildings in Limerick city centre allegedly damaged by gunfire Linkedin Facebook Funeral tribute for the Limerick Garda known as ‘Robocop’ HIGH-powered Garda cars and vehicle registration recognition are just some of the resources needed to fight crime in County Limerick.That’s the view of independent councillor Richard O’Donoghue who claims that elderly people in rural areas are still living in fear of criminals. He also highlighted the large number of quad bikes being stolen in the county and refuted the latest Garda crime figures which indicate a major drop on levels from five or ten years ago.Addressing this month’s Joint Policing Committee Meeting at City Hall, Chief Superintendent David Sheahan said there was an eight per cent rise in crime in Limerick this year. Crimes against the person and assaults made up the significant increase, he explained, adding that the figures are not a cause for worry as figures for 2016 represented a particularly good year.Sign up for the weekly Limerick Post newsletter Sign Up However, according to Cllr O’Donoghue, the figures don’t stack up.“The numbers of crimes might not have risen but they have not gone down. Thefts seem to be more frequent,” he said.“Criminals know when Gardaí are on duty and when they are off. Crime rises when they are off. I brought it up a year and a half ago about the numbers of quad bikes being stolen and these criminals have still not been apprehended. We need more Gardaí, we need more officers on the beat,” he declared.Cllr O’Donoghue went on to take issue over the lack of vehicles at Croom Garda Station and felt that a high-powered car was needed in case of pursuit across the county. He also expressed his chagrin that the only vehicle at guards disposable in Croom was a van.“A van is a van, it doesn’t have the same stability on the road,” the Banogue man insisted.Another item on the Adare-Rathkeale representative’s wish-list for crime-fighting in County Limerick was vehicle registration recognition.

first_img Three special servicers—Nationstar, Ocwen, and Walter Investment Corp.—released their fourth-quarter and year-end earnings reports with revenue increases and increasingly active originations sectors.Nationstar reported net loss of $51 million in the fourth quarter and an income of $217 million for the full year in 2013, up 6 percent from the previous year’s net income. Nationstar is the sixth-largest servicer and the 12th-largest mortgage loan originator, according to the company’s earnings report.Over the year, Nationstar increased its unpaid principal balance by 90 percent with $250 billion in unpaid principal balance added to its portfolio. At the same time, Nationstar upped its loan origination activity by 200 percent. Nationstar originated about 62,000 refinance loans through the federal Home Affordable Refinance Program (HARP).”Although origination margins came under pressure in the fourth quarter, our current originations are profitable and we are confident this business will continue to be profitable in 2014 with its more focused footprint,” said David Hisey, CFO at Nationstar.Ocwen reported $105 million in income in the fourth quarter and $294 million for the year. Ocwen also reported $556 million in revenue in the fourth quarter, up 135 percent from the previous quarter, and $2 billion in revenue for the year, up 141 percent from the previous year.Ocwen completed nearly 30,000 loan modifications, about 54 percent of which included principal reduction in the fourth quarter. Ocwen’s servicing portfolio has a 14.5 percent delinquency rate as of year-end, down slightly from 14.6 percent in the third quarter. Prepayments are on the decline at Ocwen, falling to about 13 percent in the fourth quarter, and the company expects the trend to continue.Having set a goal to purchase “at least the prior quarter’s earnings in the three months following its earnings announcements,” Ocwen repurchased 1.13 million shares of its common stock for about $60 million in the fourth quarter.”Our solid financial performance enabled us to initiate a stock repurchase program in the fourth quarter while maintaining the strongest capital ratios among our peers,” said Bill Erbey, chairman of Ocwen.Erbey went on to address its recently-halted deal with Wells Fargo to purchase servicing rights from the large bank: “We are working cooperatively with the New York Department of Financial Services to address its concerns that led to an indefinite hold on our transaction with Wells Fargo.”Compared to a net loss in income last year, Walter Investment Management Corp., reported a net income of $253.5 million for 2013. The company’s fourth-quarter income totaled $9.8 million.Walter’s total revenue for the fourth quarter was $402.8 million. Servicing contributed $162.9 million in the fourth quarter; originations contributed $135.8 million; and reverse mortgages brought in $39.1 million over the quarter. The company originated more than 63,000 HARP loans in 2013.”During 2013 Walter Investment executed against its strategic plan, profitably growing its Servicing business, launching its Originations platform to opportunistically harvest the HARP opportunity and extending its core competencies to the reverse mortgage market,” said Mark J. O’Brien, Walter Investment’s Chairman and CEO. “We more than doubled the serviced book of business to over $200 billion of UPB.”Walter Investment was also the top issuer of home equity conversion mortgages last year, according to the company’s earnings release.While the three special servicers were active contributors to HARP in the fourth quarter, this sector is expected to decline in the near-term.”HARP refinances continue to be the major driver of earnings in our lending business,” said Ron Faris, president and CEO of Ocwen. “However, we expect this volume will begin to decline over the next few months as the number of HARP-eligible loans decreases.”While special servicers continue to profit by working through delinquencies resulting from the financial crisis and temporary government programs such as HARP, there is some uncertainty as to their future.At least one group of analysts suggests special servicers might “become the next generation of non-prime originators,” according to a report earlier this year from Moody’s.  Print This Post HARP Nationstar Ocwen origination Servicing Walter Investment 2014-03-03 Krista Franks Brock Previous: Virginia Bank Closed, Fourth Collapse of 2014 Next: Mortgage Markets Today: Whole Loan Trading Trends About Author: Krista Franks Brock Sign up for DS News Daily Servicers Navigate the Post-Pandemic World 2 days ago The Best Markets For Residential Property Investors 2 days ago Tagged with: HARP Nationstar Ocwen origination Servicing Walter Investment The Best Markets For Residential Property Investors 2 days ago Subscribe The Week Ahead: Nearing the Forbearance Exit 2 days ago Demand Propels Home Prices Upward 2 days ago Governmental Measures Target Expanded Access to Affordable Housing 2 days agocenter_img Special Servicers Benefit from HARP; Future Uncertain in Daily Dose, Featured, Headlines, Market Studies, News Data Provider Black Knight to Acquire Top of Mind 2 days ago March 3, 2014 757 Views Data Provider Black Knight to Acquire Top of Mind 2 days ago Servicers Navigate the Post-Pandemic World 2 days ago Home / Daily Dose / Special Servicers Benefit from HARP; Future Uncertain Krista Franks Brock is a professional writer and editor who has covered the mortgage banking and default servicing sectors since 2011.

first_img January 7, 2018 5,569 Views Home / Daily Dose / Remembering CFPB’s Laurie Maggiano Data Provider Black Knight to Acquire Top of Mind 2 days ago 2018-01-07 Rachel Williams Related Articles Laurie Anne Maggiano, Servicing and Secondary Markets Program Manager at the Consumer Financial Protection Bureau (CFPB) has passed away. She is survived by her children and grandchildren.“Laurie dedicated her life to the service of both consumers and lenders in the residential mortgage market. Her expertise and passion had a profound impact on our industry and our ability to meet the challenges posed by the worse financial crisis in generations. Most importantly it was her desire to find reasonable balance among the various interests that was so beneficial, particularly in her role at CFPB. However, it is Laurie’s endearing smile and friendship I will miss the most,” said Ray Barbone EVP of Mortgage Services at BankUnited.Laurie had served at the CFPB for more than four years and is a nationally recognized authority on default management and foreclosure prevention. She was previously Director of Policy, Office of Homeownership Preservation at the U.S. Department of the Treasury and Acting Director of Single Family Asset Management at the U.S. Department of Housing and Urban Development. Laurie was one of the original architects of the administration’s mortgage relief and foreclosure prevention programs.“I am deeply saddened by the news of Laurie’s passing,” said Five Star Institute President & CEO Ed Delgado. “She was a gifted and talented professional, dedicated to public service. But more importantly she was a loving mother and grandmother. I am proud that we shared a special friendship. She will be missed.”Caroline Reaves, CEO at MCS also offered prayers for Laurie’s loved ones, saying, “Although Laurie is well-known for her tireless dedication to our industry, I had the privilege of knowing her as an amazing friend who shared many personal moments with my family. We shared many hours of laughter as well as tears. I will miss her terribly.”In 2011 The Five Star Institute honored Laurie with their Lifetime Achievement Award. To mark the occasion, her colleague Phyllis Caldwell, then Chief of the Homeownership Preservation Office at the U.S. Department of the Treasury, said of Maggiano:”Laurie has worked to make sure that policies translate into actions that help homeowners, while laying the foundation for sustainable change on how delinquent loans are managed. She is a tireless champion for homeowners across our country.”To view Laurie’s Lifetime Achievement video, click here.
