Landlords shun federal rent relief over program requirements

first_img Tags Share via Shortlink Share on FacebookShare on TwitterShare on LinkedinShare via Email Share via Shortlink Full Name* Email Address* While federal requirements stipulate the money should be used to pay rent for low-income tenants, individual states have broad discretion over how the programs are implemented. Those differences can be dramatic: In Broward County, Florida, the rent relief will only make up for 60 percent of back rent if what’s unpaid exceeds a month’s rent.Some landlords, faced with keeping a non-paying tenant and accepting a discounted rent versus finding a new tenant who may be in a better position to pay, are choosing the latter. The ban on federal evictions, which expires at the end of March, does not mandate that landlords renew current leases.“If you have someone who wasn’t upholding their end of the contract…you’re asking the housing provider to sign up for essentially another year of this person being in this unit unable to pay,” Amanda Gill, government affairs director for the Florida Apartment Association, an industry trade group, told the publication.“You’re really putting them in a really difficult position, because they have ongoing obligations,” Gill said.[WSJ] — Georgia KromreiContact the author (iStock/Illustration by Kevin Rebong for The Real Deal)The federal government wants to give landlords and tenants $50 billion to help keep renters in their homes — but some of those property owners are turning down the funding that they’re eligible for.Some landlords have taken issue with the requirements to receive federal rent relief, including disclosing financial information, as well as limits on evicting tenants if they choose to do so, the Wall Street Journal reported.In Boston, a tenant attorney said that a fifth of his cases involve a landlord who has refused the funds. A Houston nonprofit tasked with distributing the funds said that in 5,600 cases, landlords shunned the relief. In Los Angeles, nearly half of the tenants who received rent relief had landlords who declined to participate in the program.ADVERTISEMENTRead moreThe nitty gritton federal rent reliefLandlords hail relief bill as end of cancel rentBiden’s relief package would extend evictioni ban, boost rent relieff Message* EvictionsMultifamilyRental Marketlast_img read more

A study on octopodids from the eastern Weddell Sea, Antarctica

first_imgA comprehensive study of octopodids in the Weddell Sea was conducted during cruise ANT XIII/3 of RV “Polarstern”. The study yielded eight species or incirrate octopodids, three of which were undescribed. There appeared to be no differences in octopodid species assemblage in the two sampling areas (Kapp Norvegia and south of Drescher Inlet), supporting the theory that there is a single macrobenthic assemblage on the eastern shelf of the Weddell Sea. Six of the octopodid species belonged to the genus Pareledone, illustrating the extensive radiation of this endemic genus within the Southern Ocean. The fragmented nature of suitable habitats and disturbance caused by glaciation cycles are proposed as mechanisms for this radiation. Comparative data illustrate that both the number of octopodid species present and their abundance are greater at higher latitudes than close to the Antarctic Polar Frontal Zone.last_img read more

Oxford graduates to compete in Rio

first_imgAs the Olympics grandly opens in Rio, Oxford’s long-earned pedigree at the games will be once more put to the test. With a formidable history, spanning 158 Olympic medals won by Oxonians in the 120 years since the first modern Olympiad was held, Oxford’s representatives will be looking to continue that proud trend.In 2012, Oxford students, including alumni, claimed five medals for their respective countries. Kellogg’s Charles Cole took bronze for the USA in the Coxless Four and St. Antony’s Davis Tarwater was part of the American gold-winning 4x200m relay team. Meanwhile Great Britain reaped reward in the form of Constantine Louloudis’ bronze, and the gold medals of Pete Reed and Andy Triggs Hodge.Even those five medals were eclipsed four years prior by an impressive collection of nine medals (two bronze, four silver, three gold) for three countries (Great Britain, New Zealand and Canada).With the possibility of Oxford success in mind, there are a few key dates to keep in mind for some potential medal-winners over the next two and a half weeks.Dan Fox, once of Teddy Hall, kickstarts his Olympics with the GB hockey team in their opener at 16:30 BST Saturday, August 6th against Belgium. Should he and his teammates progress to the gold or bronze medal matches, and improve on their fourth place finish four years ago, then their Olympics would continue until August 18th.St. Catherine’s Andrew Triggs-Hodge MBE will be looking to add to his gold medals in the Coxless Four from both Beijing and London, this time competing in Britain’s men’s eight boat. His Olympics will not start until Monday, in the morning heats, but the former Boat Race winner will be looking to earn a place in next Saturday’s final. Moving the other way, from the eight to the coxless four, Constantine Louloudis will also be hoping to return home with a medal again.Joining Triggs-Hodge in the men’s eight will be Kellogg’s Paul Bennett, himself a Boat Race winner in 2013, and looking to earn his first Olympic medal to add to his World Championship golds in Amsterdam in 2014 and Aiguebelette in 2015. As Rugby 7s makes its debut to the Olympic stage, Tom Mitchell will be captaining the GB team into the sport’s new era. His side faces off against Kenya, at 16:00 on Tuesday, before hopefully escaping a competitive group C that includes New Zealand and making their way to Thursday’s 23:00 gold medal match.Finally, rowing in the women’s eight, Zoe De Toledo, having previously coxed Oxford to victory in the 2012 Boat Race, and having done the same for Britain at the 2016 European Rowing Championships in Brandenburg, will look to claim her first Olympic medal. Her Olympics will follow a similar schedule to that of Triggs-Hodge and Bennett, as her team will look to compete from the start on Monday through to next Saturday’s finale.With a raft of medal hopes over the next sixteen or so days, Oxford’s students and alumnus will surely be celebrating a host of triumphs when the greatest sporting show on earth draws its curtains closed.last_img read more

The lowdown on children’s cakes

first_imgPoints to consider:Children’s cakes can be great fun to do…..but while not wanting to sound negative a large, carved novelty can take the same amount of time, ingredients and effort as a wedding cake! And the party budget may not stretch to this.A great alternative is a 2-d novelty (flat but shaped), or regular cake with some figures. Novelty cakes need planning, make templates to scale before carving. This helps you decided how much cake to make. (trying to work out portions on a novelty can be hard as cutting evenly can be hard), sometimes a cutting cake in the kitchen helps! You may also need extra boards in order to move/cover cakes.Cakes need to be a firm texture to carve well (a Madeira works well). I prefer personally to bake sheets of Genoese cake and stack them together then carve. And for some reason cake that has been frozen carves really well…even if totally defrosted (you can carve semi defrosted cake too). If you don’t like the idea of freezing cake first, make sure cake is a least a day old. Towers and turrets, large domes, balls can be made of rice Krispy treats, marshmallow, butter and rice krispies (recipe on rice krispies site and children like the taste of these too). Some people also cover ice cream cones for turrets.Remember to cost in the offcut cake to the price of the overall cake. There can be a fair amount of waste. I fill and mask with buttercream. If possible then put the cake in the fridge, or if too large cling film, and leave for a couple of hours before covering in sugarpaste (remove Clingfilm first of course!). Some complicated novelties need to be given a thin coat of sugarpaste or marzipan first in order to build the detail. Colour all your paste in advance too, then it has chance to settle and is not too soft. For dark colours buy ready coloured paste. Also do you want to use natural colours? This could be a USP. Some Mums like this idea, if not ensure parents/guardians are aware that some designs have a lot of colour in them. I never colour the actual cake but rainbow cakes/red velvet are trending, you could be putting too much colouring in to sell these to the public, check the FSA guidelines. Novelty cakes can be dowelled for support- but I have always advised against this in children’s cakes…just in case! If using dowels can’t be avoided always tell the client that dowels are present. Also I would never use any wired flowers etc. Everything I make to go on a children’s cake is edible, if any plastic items (see below) have to be included ensure the client knows what/where they are.Also children like the idea of cake but they don’t always eat a lot…they prefer the filling and icing! Many children have themed parties and they tend to want whatever computer game, television programme, film they happen to be ‘in’ to, you need to be mindful of copyright laws and trademarks. Technically making Disney or Pixar figures is breaching this and you could be fined for doing so, I find this saddening. As a responsible business you would have to use plastic purchased figures to get round this.Nowadays cake tables are very popular especially for ‘Princess’ themed parties. These can include cupcakes, cakepops, biscuits etc. This can be adapted for boys too using themes such as pirates, go-karts etc. Brooklands College in Weybridge, Surrey offers part time catering and sugarcraft IVQ courses, such as a Level 2 in Professional Bakery and an ABC Sugarcraft Award level one as well as one day courses including Design and Create an Easter Egg, Valentine’s Cupcakes and Sugar Flowers for beginners.About SueSue Haskell has been a bakery lecturer at Brooklands College, Weybridge for twenty years.

Group discusses overcrowding

first_imgStudent body president Brett Rocheleau reviewed meetings this week between student government, community leaders and administrators during Wednesday’s gathering of the Student Senate. He also looked ahead to his administration’s goals for its upcoming meeting with the Board of Trustees. Last Thursday, Rocheleau met with Director of Academic Affairs Max Brown to talk about issues within academics. “We met with the provost and talked over issues and looked ahead at what’s to come in the future,” Rocheleau said. Friday morning, Rocheleau and chief of staff Katie Baker attended the South Bend Community Summit.   “The main topic this time was the perceptions held by Notre Dame students about South Bend residents and vice versa,” Baker said.  “The idea is for students to get more involved in the community because a lot of the time the residents just see Friday night shenanigans going on. We are trying to show them a more positive image.” Rocheleau said the summit was successful. “Basically the summit was for community leaders, police force, and students,” Rocheleau said  “We met and talked through different events and collaboration ideas. I thought it went very wel .” Also on Friday, Rocheleau met with the Office of Student affairs about the current proposals for a Gay-Straight Alliance (GSA).   “It went really well,” Rocheleau said. “They’re definitely going through a lengthy process. They’ve done a lot of research for benchmark activities. They are planning to make an announcement at the end of the semester so that’s something to look forward to.” After completing this overview of their weekend meetings, Senate looked ahead to a student government presentation before the Board of Trustees. Student body vice president Katie Rose went through an outline ofnwhat this will entail. “We will start by showing what the student body looks like statistics-wise and infrastructure,” Rose said. “So we have 29 dorms – two new buildings opened to relieve overcrowding, but we are back to being overcrowded.” Rose said the presentation will include an analysis of the residence hall system versus off-campus living. “We’ll talk about why people love living on campus and why our residence life system is so remarkable and unique,” she said. “We also have to address why students are moving off campus, which we discussed last week. We will conclude with recommendations for the future, some being more student facilities or possibly new dorm buildings.”   Rocheleau said overcrowding is a result of admitting more students. “We have about 8,400 students when our goal is usually 8,000,” Rocheleau said. “We’ve been admitting more and more per class, so more beds are being taken up in dorms. Even if we build new dorms, the same thing will happen again. We just opened two new dorms and overcrowding still happened.. McGlinn Hall senator Ali Wellman asked if reducing admissions would fix the problem. “Notre Dame admits a certain amount of students anticipating that some students will decline their offer,” Baker said.  “More and more people have been accepting the offer lately which is why the class sizes have been over the normal amount.” Carroll Hall senator Matthew O’Brien brought up a good suggestion that would open up more beds. “Would they change the rule that athletes have to live on campus? I know a lot of athletes who have rooms in dorms but don’t actually live there,” O’Brien said.  “That’s a good 100 beds that aren’t being used.” After concluding their discussion of overcrowding in residence halls, the senators addressed a resolutionoabout a new campus ministry council, introduced by campus ministry representative and senior Ellen Carroll “There is a new campus ministry leader this year, so we’re changing the model to make it really driven by the students,” Carroll said. “We want student-generated ideas to share with the administration so they can work with each other.” To bring those ideas before the administration, Carroll said a new body called the Campus Ministry Advisory Council will include 12 to 15 students. “They will meet with campus ministry administrators and talk about topics brought up from both sides,” she said. Carroll said she hopes for a wide range of students to participate in this council, not just “campus ministry regulars..   “We want to be able to better meet the needs of the entire student body,” Carroll said. “The resolution says we have this new position to facilitate communication between student government and campus ministry. The campus ministry representative will be someone from the advisory council, once it is created.” Senate voted unanimously in favor of this resolution.last_img read more

Kilmer and Beyond

first_imgA couple of months ago I wrote about a short hike in the Joyce Kilmer Memorial Forest in southwestern North Carolina. The area has so many good places to visit that I want to make sure you know about few more.A Soaring Observation DeckFrom the Joyce Kilmer Memorial Forest parking area, drive back to the first four-way intersection, turn left onto NC 1127, and ascend five miles to the Maple Springs Observation Area. A handicapped accessible platform juts into space, with a 180-degree vista of the Snowbird, Unicoi, Cheoah, and Great Smoky Mountains rising high above Santeetlah Lake shimmering in the foreground. Come here in early June for an explosion of pink and white mountain laurel blossoms.Camping, Fishing, Swimming, BoatingSanteetlah Lake is lined by 76 miles of mostly forested shoreline, with more than 50 primitive campsites and access for anglers to cast for smallmouth and largemouth bass, crappie, bream, and lake trout. A white sand beach is located at Cheoah Point Recreation as a protected place for the kids to swim, while several marinas rent boats of various shapes and sizes.A Mini Blue Ridge ParkwayThe Cherohala Skyway rises to more than 5,000 feet as it wiggles for 51 miles across the Unicoi Mountains from Robbinsville, North Carolina to Tellico Plains, Tennessee. Like the parkway, it has overlook pullouts to enjoy mountain crests and narrow valleys, and short trails to get on more intimate terms with the landscape. Two of my favorites are the 0.5-mile Wright Creek Trail along its namesake stream and the Hooper Bald Trail (less than one mile roundtrip) to an open summit punctuated by swaying Turk’s-cap lily plants. This is a great driving, motorcycling, and biking route. Just remember, there are no commercial establishments, so fill up with fuel, food, and water before heading out.Adjacent to the parkway are the many miles of the proposed Snowbird Wilderness, with the main route, the Big Snowbird Trail, providing access to several waterfalls.last_img read more

Nassau Officer Acquitted of Harrassing Colleagues

first_imgSign up for our COVID-19 newsletter to stay up-to-date on the latest coronavirus news throughout New York A Nassau County police officer was aqcuitted of harassing her colleagues who arrested her while she was off-duty after a parking dispute with on-duty officers who accused her of resisting arrest.A Nassau County jury found Dolores Sharpe, 53, not guilty Wednesday of harassment and resisting arrest charges following a two-week-long trial.“I am free of this dark cloud that these men placed over me and my good name,” Officer Sharpe said. “I did nothing wrong and today the jury made that fact clear.”Officers Charles Volpe and Victor Gladitz, who are white, had arrested Sharpe, who is black, for allegedly trying to strike one of the officers “in his face with a neck chain by swinging it at him” and later “refused to comply with multiple lawful orders to place her hands behind her back,” the officers alleged in  court documents.The altercation occurred Nov. 29, 2013 the parking lot of a store in Hempstead, where Sharpe was shopping at the time, authorities have said. One of the officers accused Sharpe of blocking his view during an investigation. Heated words were reportedly exchanged by both sides, but Sharpe’s lawyer said the arresting officers crossed a line.“Not only was this incident one which subjected Officer Sharpe to an extreme level of humiliation, but the clear attempt by these two officers was to personally degrade her and deprive her of any sense of dignity,” said Sharpe’s Hempstead-based attorney, Frederick Brewington. “The County of Nassau and its Police Department have been asked to investigate the actions of the two officers and consider charges of perjury against at least one of them.”In addition to the arrest, Sharpe later served a 30-day unpaid suspension. A police spokesman has said that an internal affiars investigation into the case is continuing.Prosecutors said they respected the outcome.“An arrest was made, allegations were reviewed, the evidence was presented and a jury carefully considered the case, as evidenced by their four-day deliberation,” said Paul Leonard, a spokesman for Acting Nassau County District Attorney Madeline Singas. “Judge Kluewer presided over a fair trial. We respect the jury process and their verdict.”last_img read more
