“This globally agreed agenda, pledges to secure a healthy planet and build peaceful and inclusive societies to ensure lives of dignity for all,” said the Secretary-General in a video message marking the International Day for the Eradication of Poverty. “Its pledge to leave no one behind will require innovative approaches, partnerships and solutions.” In particular, he called for addressing the root causes of poverty to eradicate it in its entirety, and in doing so to listen to the views and guidance of people living in poverty and acting together with them. Despite progress to eliminate poverty, more than 800 million people around the world continue live in extreme poverty and many more are threatened by alarming rates of unemployment, insecurity, inequality, conflict as well as the effect of climate change. Eliminating poverty, and alleviating the suffering and building resilience of those living in poverty is the target for Goal 1 of the Sustainable Development Goals (SDGs) to end poverty in all its forms everywhere. The Goal also aims to ensure social protection for the poor and vulnerable, increase access to basic services and support people harmed by climate-related extreme events and other economic, social and environmental shocks and disasters. This year marks the 25th anniversary of the decision by the General Assembly, designating 17 October as the International Day for the Eradication of Poverty. The theme for this year’s commemoration is Answering the Call of October 17 to end poverty: A path toward peaceful and inclusive societies.It recognizes the knowledge and courage of families living in poverty throughout the world, as well as the importance of reaching out to the poorest and building an alliance with citizens from all backgrounds to end poverty. read more

Olivia Dunlea, 36, was found in the house at Passage West after the emergency services were called in the early hours of Sunday morning.#PROMISSORY NOTES: The President of the European Central Bank (ECB) has told MEPs the institution has not yet considered whether the promissory note arrangements between the Central Bank of Ireland and the Irish government are in breach of European law. Appraisals are usually carried out when the ECB’s annual report is compiled in spring each year, which could indicate that no authoritative test will be undertaken for another 12 months.#JOBS: Drugs company GlaxoSmithKline has announced it is to close a unit in Cork, with the loss of 94 jobs. Meanwhile, Facebook is to create more than 100 new jobs in Dublin, with positions including corporate communications, data, developer relations, sales, administration and user operations advertised on its website.#GRANDPARENTS: A new Bill legislating for the rights of grandparents to apply for access to children is to introduce a definition of the term in child guardianship law.

first_imgTwitterFinally, the outcome is loud and clear. The grand-old party has failed to counter the juggernaut of PM Narendra Modi. Surely, Rahul Gandhi faces imminent jibes tomorrow at the CWC but more than that, this was a historic defeat that beholds the entire opposition to litmus test.Congress, on its own, has done better than its performance in 2014. Until the success in assembly elections of Rajasthan and Chattisgarh, no party worker or leader was able to hope for the party’s revival. When it did happen, ambitious acrimony for sops led to the party’s debacle again.The vivid lack of committed cadre and young leadership in every state, disorganised party structure, intermittent success followed by repeated failures over the last five years have made the party realise its inherent shortcomings. Nonetheless, 2019 BJP victory has given Congress an enviable lesson to learn.The formation of Congress-led governments in Madhya Pradesh and Karnataka despite limited majority have given BJP enough ground to muster its own cadre and supporters to counter the emerging wave in favour of Congress, especially its leader Rahul Gandhi.Here, BJP’s excellent control over the media channels helped it pass on the message quickly and decisively. All means of communication — media, news and direct communication via its own cadre, social media channels, roping in influencers, local leaders, group heads, TV channels and media houses — fell in line within a span of just two months to carry forward BJP’s message to the last voter.Congress, evidently, failed miserably to sense the online social media onslaught as its over-ambitious comminication leads jumped the ship when the battle was in the mid-sea. Since, the cadre-less Congress Party failed to counter inner shortcomings and withstand outside attacks, all its weapons of criticism ranging from Rafale to NYAY, failed to deliver.Secondly, Priyanka Gandhi’s entry in February raised many eyebrows but the party failed to project her as another Indira Gandhi, despite suggestions and pleadings from many corners. By not fielding her against Modi in Varanasi, the party has lost one major opportunity to strengthen her stature.The discipline in a party comes with restrictions and Amit Shah has shown how age factor, retirement and non-inheritance of political legacy by family members could make BJP different. Impressed with these cosmetic but very effective tools of discipline, common voters fell for the glitter.No wonder, Rahul Gandhi needs to wait for five more years, but surely, he has time to rebuild the age old party and structure it the way BJP did.last_img read more


first_imgAfghan President Ashraf GhaniThe Afghan Taliban on Saturday announced a three-day ceasefire over the Eid holiday at the end of this week, their first offer of its kind, following a ceasefire announced by the government on Thursday.The militants said foreign forces would be excluded from the ceasefire and that operations against them would continue. They also said they would defend themselves against any attack.“In three days, maybe the unity of Taliban insurgents will be put to test,” a European diplomat told Reuters. “If different factions don’t accept the ceasefire, then attacks will continue.”Afghan president Ashraf Ghani announced an unconditional ceasefire with the Taliban on Thursday, until 20 June, coinciding with the end of the Muslim fasting month of Ramadan, but excluding other militant groups, such as Islamic State.Ghani’s decision came after a meeting of Islamic clerics declared a fatwa, or ruling, against suicide bombings, one of which, claimed by Islamic State, killed 14 people at the entrance to the clerics’ peace tent in Kabul.The clerics also recommended a ceasefire with the Taliban, who are seeking to re-impose strict Islamic law after their ouster in 2001, and Ghani endorsed the recommendation, saying it would last until 20 June.It was not immediately clear when the Taliban ceasefire would begin, as Eid starts when the moon is first sighted on either the 29th or 30th day of Ramadan, and the moon appears at different times across the country.Ghani has urged ceasefires with the Taliban before, but this was the first unconditional offer since he was elected in 2014.In August, US president Donald Trump unveiled a more hawkish military approach to Afghanistan, including a surge in air strikes, aimed at forcing the Taliban to the negotiating table.Afghan security forces say the impact has been significant, but the Taliban roam huge swaths of the country and, with foreign troop levels of about 15,600, down from 140,000 in 2014, there appears little hope of outright victory.The Taliban’s surprise announcement comes as Trump and North Korean leader Kim Jong Un are due to sit down to a summit in Singapore on Tuesday, something few people would have predicted just months ago when threats between the two sides were at their most bellicose.last_img read more

first_img“Deck the Halls” and “Jingle Bells” are swell Christmas songs. But the best holiday classics have a warm fuzzy, almost wistful quality. There’s “I’ll Be Home for Christmas,” “White Christmas,” and, arguably, the greatest of them all: “Have Yourself a Merry Little Christmas.”What many people may not know about that last number, though: It originally had a different set of lyrics, and was something of a Yuletide downer — to put it mildly.Poster for the 1944 film Meet Me in St. Louis.The song was penned by Hugh Martin for the 1944 MGM musical, Meet Me in St. Louis, starring Judy Garland.The plot: A family is saddened to learn that they’ll be moving to New York City after their father gets a promotion, and will have to leave their beloved St. Louis home just before the 1904 World’s Fair is about to hit town.Margaret O’Brien and Judy Garland in Meet Me in St. LouisIn a three-hanky scene set on Christmas Eve, Garland’s character, Esther, sings the ballad to cheer up her heart-broken little sister, Tootie, played by the tear-making machine that was five-year-old Margaret O’Brien.Take a look at some of the less-than-lighthearted lyrics Martin composed before filming began:“Have yourself a merry little ChristmasIt may be your lastNext year we may all be living in the pastHave yourself a merry little ChristmasPop that champagne corkNext year we may all be living in New YorkNo good times like the olden daysHappy golden days of yoreFaithful friends who were dear to usWill be near to us no moreBut at least we all will be togetherIf the Lord allowsFrom now on, we’ll have to muddle through somehowSo have yourself a merry little Christmas now”According to Hollywood lore, Garland thought the song was too sad (ya think?), and asked Martin if he could lighten it up a little.He initially refused, but the actress stood firm, saying, “If I sing that to that sweet little Margaret O’Brien, they’ll think I’m a monster!”Margaret O’Brien and Judy Garland perform the song “Under the Bamboo Tree” in Meet Me in St. Louis.The composer finally caved, coming up with new, less depressing, lyrics: “Have yourself a merry little Christmas, It may be your last, Next year we may all be living in the past” changed to “Have yourself a merry little Christmas, Let your heart be light, From now on your troubles will be out of sight”; “Faithful friends who were dear to us, Will be near to us no more” became “Faithful friends who are dear to us, Gather near to us once more.”Cropped screenshot of Judy Garland from the trailer for the film Meet Me in St. Louis.Meet Me in St. Louis became a big hit, and Garland’s version of the song became popular with U.S. troops during World War II. (A performance at the Hollywood Canteen, a club that offered entertainment to servicemen on their way to battle, brought many soldiers to tears.)But there wasn’t much of a commercial market for Christmas tunes at the time, so the song disappeared for a while.Publicity photo of American entertainers Judy Garland and Margaret O’Brien from the 1944 feature film Meet Me in St. Louis.Then, in 1957, Frank Sinatra decided to include the song on a Christmas album, A Jolly Christmas.Now it was the crooner’s turn to ask for a tweak in the lyrics — asking Martin if he could rewrite the “Until then we’ll have to muddle through somehow” line, reportedly telling him, “The name of my album is A Jolly Christmas. Do you think you could jolly up that line for me?”Frank Sinatra in 1955Not about to tangle with the mercurial Chairman of the Board, Martin changed the line to a decidedly happier “Hang a shining star upon the highest bough.”Smart move by Sinatra: The upbeat version became the classic so many of us listen to and love today.Over the years, the song has been recorded thousands of times by artists as eclectic as Bing Crosby, Doris Day, Ella Fitzgerald, The Pretenders, James Taylor, Luther Vandross, and heavy metal headbangers Twister Sister.Ella Fitzgerald included the song on her 1960 studio album ‘Ella Wishes You A Swinging Christmas.’Today, people are divided as to which version of the song is better, and, as Martin has noted “half the people sing one line and half sing the other.” Recently, though, some singers have been opting for the sadder sentiment.Read another story from us: The nostalgic classic “A Christmas Story” actually launched a lascivious Leg Lamp wearing a fishnet stockingJames Taylor returned to the song’s original melancholy lyrics after 9/11, releasing the song as a record later in 2001. Whichever rendition, the song — sentimental and, yes, kind of sad — remains a touching and enduring classic.last_img read more

first_img Share in Daily Dose, News, Origination Many loan origination systems are not satisfying the lenders who are using them, according to a the STRATMOR Group’s Insights report for December 2016.Nearly one-third of lenders surveyed (30 percent) said they were dissatisfied with their current LOS. Approximately 19 percent of lenders said they were actively seeking to replace their LOS, and another 11 percent said they were in the process of replacing their LOS because they were not satisfied with it, despite the disruption to business the replacement of an LOS can cause and the significant resources required for such a change, according to STRATMOR.The share of lenders dissatisfied with their LOS in December was higher than the share reported in December 2015 (28.7 percent).“Last year, the STRATMOR Technology Insight Survey found just over 27 percent of lenders were ‘very satisfied’ with their LOS,” STRATMOR Group Senior Partner Dr. Matt Lind said. “This year, the share who felt this way rose to 28 percent, a very modest increase. However, we find such a low rate of total satisfaction to be indicative of the decidedly mixed—if not downright depressing—results of this year’s survey. The largest group of respondents, 42 percent, indicated that they are just ‘somewhat satisfied.’ While not actively looking to replace their LOS, their responses indicate these lenders aren’t what you’d call ‘raving fans’ either. Over time we would expect many of these lenders to start to actively look for a new system.”Why are these lenders dissatisfied with their systems? STRATMOR may have an idea. What the survey revealed was a correlation between the lender size and the amount of satisfaction (or dissatisfaction) with the LOS. System requirements and maintenance tend to be easier with smaller lenders’ systems since those lenders most often originate out of single channels, whereas larger lenders originate out of multiple channels, making it tougher for those systems to meet the challenge, according to STRATMOR.“As companies grow larger, the demands on the system become more complex in terms of geography and origination channels,” STRATMOR reported. “The system needs of a correspondent lender are very different from that of a retail lender.”Click here to view the entire STRATMOR Group Insights report for December.

first_img December 15, 2017 665 Views in Daily Dose, Data, Featured, News Despite rising buyer demand and low for-sale inventory causing home prices to rise across the nation, most markets are still healthy, according to CoreLogic’s Market Health Indicator. However, 16 of the top 100 metro markets evaluated, with 10 in Florida alone, have been identified as high-risk markets.In order to determine whether a market is a high, normal, or low risk, the report analyzes several economic factors. The first is a comparison of home prices using CoreLogic’s Home Price Index and the long-run sustainable levels that can be supported by local fundamentals, such as disposable income.“Because most homeowners budget a portion of their income for shelter costs, and these costs are generally related to home prices, there is an established long-term relationship between income levels and home prices,” the report notes.The second factor considered is the appreciation of home prices relative to rents—as renting is an alternative to homeownership—and if home prices veer too far from rents, then it is eventually due for a correction. The final factor is if housing flipping is too high, which causes investors to speculate on short-term price gains and an increase in vacancy rates. According to the analysis, housing bubbles are often accompanied by widespread mortgage fraud.With all of these factors put into place, CoreLogic reports the 16 highest-risk markets of the top 100 metros areas analyzed—with 10 in Florida and six in California, Louisiana, Nevada, and Texas. The list includes:  In these top metro areas, home prices have appreciated by more than 40 percent since January 2012—with the exception of Nassau County-Suffolk County, New York and New Orleans-Metairie, Louisiana.When it comes to renting, the data finds that it appreciated less than half of the home price growth. All 16 markets are overvalued on the basis of both price-to-income measures and price-to-rent measures. The chart also shows the national ranking for flipping and fraud risk in these metro areas.“As we can see, most of them have flipping and fraud ranked in the top quantile, indicating short-term speculation as well as a high risk of mortgage fraud, which might lead to another bubble in those areas,” the report notes.To view the full report, click here.
