Millennials Buy Into the American Dream

first_img Governmental Measures Target Expanded Access to Affordable Housing 2 days ago Data Provider Black Knight to Acquire Top of Mind 2 days ago Demand Propels Home Prices Upward 2 days ago Servicers Navigate the Post-Pandemic World 2 days ago January 21, 2019 1,810 Views Homeownership might not be an immediate option for many millennials, but according to a study by Clever Real Estate, it remains a core component of the American Dream for 84 percent of potential homeowners of this generation. And, this generation is here to stay not only as homebuyers but also as investors in real estate, the study revealed.For the study, Clever Real Estate conducted a survey of 1,000 homebuyers who were planning to purchase a new home within the next year. Fifty-one percent of these respondents were aged between 18 to 34 years (the age-group classified as millennials).The study revealed that millennials were 52 percent more likely than Baby Boomers or Gen-X to invest in property with 9 percent of those surveyed saying that they were interested in renting out new properties for passive income.Looking at why millennials were buying homes, the study found that the need for more space was the number one reason that was driving more millennials towards homeownership. Fifty-four percent millennials cited it as a reason. This was closely followed by the belief that real estate was a sound investment (43 percent), it’s more affordable than renting (43 percent), and the need for more privacy (38 percent).Millennials weren’t afraid of buying fixer-uppers either with around 68 percent of those surveyed noting that they were willing to purchase a home that required repairs. However, the study pointed out that millennials failed to realize that a home needing major repairs was more likely to hurt them than save money.Citing a report by Home Advisor, the study said that the average cost to remodel a bathroom in 2018 was $9,742, whereas a kitchen was $22,145.7 and that debt-ridden millennials or those struggling to save enough for a down payment “should think twice before investing in a home in need of immediate, structural repairs.”With down payment one of the biggest obstacles cited by millennials to homeownership (37 percent), the study indicated that 31 percent millennials were looking to purchase more affordable homes in the $100,000 to $199,999 price range.Click here to read the full study.

HR makes difference in driving CSR policy

first_imgHR makes difference in driving CSR policyOn 18 Mar 2003 in Personnel Today HR must expand its role to drive corporate social responsibility (CSR) if itis to meet the future expectations of staff, customers and shareholders. This was the conclusion of employers who scored highly in the first-ever CSRindex and a study on the issue published by the Chartered Institute forPersonnel Development (CIPD) last week. More than 120 organisations took part in Business in the Community (BITC)Corporate Responsibility Index that rated their performance in areas such asworkplace, community, environment and the marketplace. BITC set up the index to enable companies to demonstrate that they are runresponsibly and ethically in the aftermath of the Enron and WorldCom scandals. Paul Davis, HR director 3M, a top-rated company in the index, said HR helpeddrive the firm’s CSR values, which were becoming increasingly important to thecompany. “It’s definitely a growing area because consumers are starting to demandit. On a wider perspective this sort of thing is part of our people’s growthand development so HR is very important to it,” he said. Scottish Power’s HR director Stephen Dunn said his company had rated highlyin the index because of the part HR played in promoting its CSR initiativessuch as its learning in the community scheme. “We set the tone for CSR in all our policies such as management andstaff training and leadership development,” he said. Patrick Mallon, director of benchmarking at BITC, agreed it was essential HRsupported CSR initiatives. “HR is well placed to co-ordinate and drive it[CSR],” he said. Mike Emmott, author of the CIPD report, concluded HR had a direct impact ona company’s willingness to embrace CSR through areas such as recruitment,training and communication. “The HR department is ideally placed to develop an organisation’sapproach to CSR, which must involve promoting trust-based relationships withemployees and other stakeholders,” he said. www.bitc.org.ukBy Ross WighamFeedback from the professionIs CSR HR’s sole responsibilityAnthony Sampson, director of CSR at Aviva”HR is a big part of the CSR agenda and the department isresponsible for a number of initiatives within the company. It is somethingevery-body should be aware of but it does need an engine. The index is a reallyuseful tool for gauging the performance of initiatives HR puts in place, butit’s only a starting point. However, CSR is a relatively new field that’sgrowing all the time.”Chris Clarke, corporatecitizenship manager, Ford UK”HR is key to the relationship between the employer andstaff and has a very broad role [to play] in this. HR is a cornerstone of theCSR policy at Ford.”Glynn House, employment brandmanager, Sainsbury”CSR is much broader than any one department and we lookat it from the point of view of the whole business – HR has a very big role toplay in that. Consumers are increasingly demanding more responsibility and wantto know what a company’s CSR policy is.”Ed Williams, CSR director M&S”It’s not just about involvement in the community, it’sthe whole employment picture. I wouldn’t single out HR because CSR iseverybody’s responsibility. The way a company treats its employees is a bigpart of it, but shouldn’t be seen in isolation. CSR and HR have to be alignedto the business objectives.” Previous Article Next Article Comments are closed. Related posts:No related photos.last_img read more

Five Reasons Why You Should Always Support Your Local Bands

first_imgThere are probably more bands than jobs on the market, but that doesn’t mean they should be taken for granted. If you were to walk down the main street of any popular city or town, the chances of you walking past live music are very high. While the chances of them drawing you in to stay for their set might be slim, it’s for gosh-darn-certain that the time is worth the try.Because you never know who‘s the next what, it’s important to support as much live music as possible. If they don’t impress you, simply carry on and know that your lack in attendance will most likely influence the club promoter’s decision to never invite them back; and thus the cycle will continue until the musicians realize whether or not to continue their passion with hopes of making a day job. If they do impress you, well, there’s a world of endless opportunity that can start from the bar stool of an old sports bar in the corner of god knows where on a Tuesday night.Here are five of many reasons why you should always go out and support your local bands!5. Numbers mean everything.If you’ve decided that you are in favor of a local band that is most likely not charging any more than $5 for entry (if any at all), you should go out and support them. It’s the only way they will be invited back out, and therefore the only way they will continue to get noticed. Life only gets better with more music, so why not support it all you can?4. Like the musicians, the techs, bartenders, and bouncers need to get paid too. The music business is all-encompassing. Everything you need to run a successful bar, club, or lounge is needed to operate a venue. If the smaller shows don’t sell, they won’t be able to support the larger shows; and so on. Nectar’s got its legacy because of a local band named Phish.3. Supporting music is (quite literally) supporting life.For many who try to make a living out of it, music is life. It might (just barely) pay their bills, and it might (only sometimes) get them laid, or perhaps (but not likely) it will lead to a full career, but it is 100% worth supporting a dream–even if it (probably won’t) change a life. These people, too, need food on their table. Though there is ALWAYS the chance that their career DOES take off, and therefore your support means the world. For a person dedicating themselves to an industry once described as “a cruel and shallow money trench, a long plastic hallway where thieves and pimps run free, and good men die like dogs,” they, too, must see that “there’s also a negative side” (Hunter S. Thompson). Everything is worth it if you make it.2. As far as new experiences, you never know what you’ll walk in to.So long as you go about your automatic existence, go home after work, “catch up on sleep,” or rationalize another time over the now, you will never gain a new experience; you will never meet the people you should meet; and you will never gain back the time you’ve lost. So be sure to do the unexpected, talk to strangers, and find the others. You may never know who’s to walk through the door unless you go through it first.Every adventure has the capacity to turn into an experience, so long as you put yourself out there, do things you normally wouldn’t do, and do your best to radiate radical change all the while.1. Everyone needs a vacation.Neither the musicians, promoters, or management, nor the agents, ticket-buyers, or fan-base will ever get one without the initial support. Whether the concert pays for the vacation, or the concert IS the vacation, be sure to find your link within the cycle. Let music be the gift that keeps on giving.last_img read more

Peru Tightens Noose Around Shining Path Offshoot Party MOVADEF

first_imgBy Dialogo January 14, 2013 LIMA — The Peruvian government has stepped up efforts to prevent Shining Path guerrillas from trying to regroup under the auspices of Peru’s legal political system. President Ollanta Humala is taking aim at the Movement for Amnesty and Fundamental Rights [Movimiento de Amnistía y Derechos Fundamentales, or MOVADEF], which was formed two years ago by former Shining Path inmates and lawyers for the outlawed party’s imprisoned leaders. MOVADEF collected more than 300,000 signatures to register as a legal party, but was blocked by election authorities and withdrew its application last February. While the government was initially caught off guard by MOVADEF’s effort to register, it has used the past year to prepare a legal and political strategy to combat the organization. On Jan. 2, Interior Minister Wilfredo Pedraza presented a criminal case against MOVADEF spokesman Alfredo Crespo, accusing him of violating anti-terrorism laws. The case revolves around MOVADEF’s political platform, which advocates an interpretation of Marxism espoused by Shining Path founder Abimael Guzmán and known in Peru as “Gonzalo Thought.” “MOVADEF not only accepts Marxism, Leninism and Maoism, but the ideological route of ‘Gonzalo Thought’, which has translated in Peru since May 1980 as assassination, destruction and death,” Pedraza said at a news conference. Pedraza dismisses Crespo claim as ‘semantics’ The Shining Path launched its war against Peru in May 1980, coinciding with the first democratic elections after 12 years of military rule. A truth commission that investigated 20 years of political violence between 1980 and 2000 concluded that the Shining Path was responsible for the deaths of most of the 69,000 people killed or disappeared during the internal conflict. The commission also blamed it for inflicting nearly $25 billion in damages through sabotage. Guzmán and other top leaders were arrested in September 1992 and have been in prison ever since. Crespo said that while his party shares the same ideology as Shining Path, it is not a militarized party and does not accept armed struggle as a means to gaining power. Yet Pedraza has dismissed Crespo’s distinction between the Shining Path and MOVADEF as pure semantics. “There is no need for a military action [to be committed] to charge him with terrorism. His defense of Shining Path ideology, talk about armed struggle and clear association with Guzmán is enough,” he said. Humala pushes for ‘denial law’ Crespo has already spent 12 years in prison on terrorism charges. He was released in 2005 and almost immediately resumed his defense of Guzmán and other Shining Path leaders serving life sentences. He faces another 20 years in prison if convicted in the case presented by Pedraza. At the same time, the Humala administration has been working with Congress to close gaps in existing anti-terrorism legislation. On Dec. 13, the government published a law banning anyone convicted of terrorism from teaching in public or private schools, universities or technical institutes. The law requires the Education Ministry to review the criminal history of all teachers every school year. This followed a law passed in late November increasing penalties for anyone convicted of direct and indirect financing of terrorist activities. The longest sentence is now 35 years and it would be applied to any public authorities — including teachers — convicted of supporting terrorism. Lawmakers are expected to begin debate in January on legislation that would make it illegal to deny the impact terrorism had on the country. The congressional Justice and Constitution committees have already approved the bill. Known as the “denial law” and modeled after German legislation concerning the country’s Nazi past, the Peruvian bill would make it a crime to “approve, justify, deny or minimize the crimes committed by the members of terrorist organizations.” If approved, the formation of parties like MOVADEF would also be illegal. Intelligence agency DINI given additional powers Humala has called on Congress to pass the denial law and continue strengthening anti-terrorism laws. “The fight against subversion will continue … we need to use the mechanisms of rule of law to defend ourselves,” he said Jan. 3. “Democracy cannot be blind. We cannot give [MOVADEF] any opportunities.” The administration has also beefed up the intelligence service, something Humala promised when he took office in July 2011. The administration issued a legislative decree in early December strengthening the National Intelligence System and National Intelligence Bureau (DINI), which Humala said must play a much greater role in eliminating “terrorist remnants” throughout Peru. The decree elevates the DINI chief to the status of “presidential advisor on intelligence issues” and adds the post of executive director to make the agency more versatile. The most important change, however, is centralizing all intelligence activity in the DINI. The agency will now “direct, control and supervise the components of the National Intelligence Service,” with intelligence-gathering units in the National Police and three branches of the military, to coordinate information. Military cracks down on two breakaway factions In addition, the Humala administration has increased its 2013 budget for the intelligence system to improve its capacity to combat a breakaway Shining Path faction that operates in the south-central jungle in an area known as the VRAEM. The Belgium-sized zone — under a state of emergency since June 2003 — is home to one-third of the coca grown in Peru for transformation into cocaine. The VRAEM faction is unrelated to MOVADEF and the Shining Path’s imprisoned leaders have labeled its fighters mercenaries. The government says the VRAEM group, led by the Quispe Palomino family clan, was responsible for killing more than 20 police officers and soldiers in 2012. A second Shining Path faction, this one in the northern Upper Huallaga Valley, was been eliminated last year after the February 2012 arrest of its leader, Florindo Flores or “Comrade Artemio.” Flores’ trial began Dec. 19 and is expected to last four months; he is accused of terrorism, drug trafficking and direct responsibility in more than 100 assassinations. The state has requested a life sentence and fines totaling more than $1 billion for Flores. Julio Galindo, the anti-terrorism prosecutor, said his office would also present evidence linking Flores with MOVADEF. Flores doesn’t deny his role in the Shining Path — he’s led the Huallaga faction since the early 1990s — but has challenged the prosecution’s charge of terrorism, saying the trial is political. Chief prosecutor Luís Landa has responded that there’s nothing political about the trial. He told the three-judge court that Flores is a member of “a bloody organization that caused death and provoked terror among the population.”last_img read more

Ice, cold weather blamed for lack of evidence in Charlotte Street triple fire

first_imgAll three fires are believed to have started on the third floor and its possible that it could have been one fire that rekindled twice. No “accelerate” or anything that could hasten the spread of a fire has been found at the residence, Gaffney says. Gaffney says the icy conditions have made it hard to find evidence. He says it could be an accident or “suspicious.” Investigators are still interviewing people about the fire and they say that anyone with information regarding it is welcome to reach out to them. RELATED: 3rd fire breaks out on Charlotte Street Sunday morningcenter_img Fire investigators told 12 News that at least 15 people lived in the residence but more people could have been inside when the fire broke out. BINGHAMTON (WBNG) — Fire officials say no cause has been ruled out for the 25 Charlotte St. fire from this weekend.

Broome County man deployed to NYC with National Guard

first_img“We’re doing a lot of humanitarian type missions. We’re doing a lot of support to civil authorities. We’re setting up tents for hospital overflow. Setting up tents for roadside testing sites,” said Haun. “It’s kind of an escape from the daily. And I think people really need that right now. A lot of people are getting cabin fever and there’s just a lot of stress with the pandemic going on. A lot of uncertainty with jobs. So it just lets you set that aside for a few minutes,” he said. “It’s a lot of work to get the mission up and running, to get people broken into teams,” he said. “Whatever the local systems can’t handle, we try to plus them up so they can focus on what they do best.” Haun says he mainly works in the task force headquarters, making sure soldiers’ needs are met. Sergeant First Class Chris Haun is from the Southern Tier and was sent down to the New York City area in the second week of March, helping out on the front lines. While Haun is making a difference nearly 200 miles away, he’s also making a difference in some lives back here at home. Spreading both hope and joy through singing, while providing a short break away from reality. Haun says music allows people to transport themselves to a different time and place, something that may be needed right now. (WBNG) — Members of the National Guard are being deployed to New York City, the nation’s hot spot for COVID-19. “It helps me connect with people, I think it helps people connect with me,” said Haun. Haun served a six year contract in the Army Reserves and then re-enlisted into the National Guard in 2014. He has been posting videos of himself singing and playing guitar on his Facebook page while in New York City. “Even if it’s not the whole song isn’t maybe what you’re feeling, if you can connect even with a piece of it I think it does its job,” he said.last_img read more
