5SHARESShareShareSharePrintMailGooglePinterestDiggRedditStumbleuponDeliciousBufferTumblr by: Henry MeierMore and more federal courts are answering this question with a resounding :“You Bet they are.”The latest court to rule on this issue was the West Coast’s Ninth Circuit. In a December 30th Decision the Circuit held that Fannie Mae and Freddie Mac were exempt from paying mortgage transfer taxes imposed by Spokane Washington (City of Spokane v. Fed. Nat. Mortgage Ass’n, No. 13-35655, 2014 WL 7384311 (9th Cir. Dec. 30, 2014)).The issue involved in this and similar cases around the country relates to mortgage transfer or recording taxes imposed by localities when mortgages are recorded. As New York’s Courts have explained these transfer taxes are not property taxes but taxes imposed by localities in return for the right to record mortgages with county clerks.When you consider how many mortgages Fannie and Freddie buy exempting them from having to pay for mortgage recordation is a big savings. An increasingly long list of Federal Circuit Courts-the ones just below the Supreme Court-have looked at the federal statutes exempting the GSE’s from paying certain state level taxes and concluded that Congress intended to exempt them from transfer taxes. According to the Ninth Circuit these cases include: Town of Johnston v. Fed. Hous. Fin. Agency, 765 F.3d 80 (1st Cir.2014) ; Bd. of Comm’rs v. Fed. Hous. Fin. Agency, 758 F.3d 706 (6th Cir.2014)l.

8SHARESShareShareSharePrintMailGooglePinterestDiggRedditStumbleuponDeliciousBufferTumblr As a Millennial myself — though, admittedly, at the very outskirts of the spectrum (younger Millennials are keen to point that out to me; can’t we all just get along?) — I can tell you that we’re unjustly dragged through the mud by the press. We’re lazy, entitled, self-absorbed, and demanding — or so claims the media.Much of the shade that we’re thrown, as far as I can tell anyway, is just that — shade. Because contrary to popular belief, we Millennials are savvier and more responsible, especially where money matters are concerned, than we’re portrayed. To tips the scales back in our favor a bit more, here are six money misconceptions about Millennials, and why they’re wrong.1. Millennials Will Be Renters for LifeI’m 34 years old, born in 1981, and I purchased my first home with my husband at 28 years old. Most of my Millennial friends own their homes, too. The idea that Millennials will be renters for life is an outdated belief, perhaps established during the housing crisis of the last decade, but it’s held on nonetheless. That’s all changing now. continue reading »
Dec 6, 2004 (CIDRAP News) – Researchers in Canada who found hepatitis in ferrets after injecting the animals with an experimental vaccine for SARS (severe acute respiratory syndrome) are urging caution as other investigators develop and test SARS vaccines.As reported in the November issue of the Journal of Virology, the study involved a vaccine developed by senior author Jingxin Cao, PhD, of the Public Health Agency of Canada’s National Microbiological Laboratory in Winnipeg, Man. Cao had created a vaccine from recombinant modified vaccinia virus Ankara (rMVA) and the distinctive spike protein that marks the SARS coronavirus (SARS-CoV). The trial vaccine is called rMVA-S.The team chose ferrets for the study on the basis of their reported susceptibility to SARS infection, Cao told CIDRAP News.At the Canadian Science Centre for Human and Animal Health’s Biosafety Level 4 lab in Winnipeg, three ferrets were injected with the rMVA-S vaccine, three with parental MVA, and three with saline solution. They received booster immunizations 2 weeks later.Then the ferrets were exposed intranasally to the SARS virus, which infected more than 8,000 people and killed 774 between November 2002 and July 2003.On the plus side, immunization with rMVA-S induced a rapid immune response following exposure to the virus, the researchers wrote. The ferrets displayed no clinical signs of illness, but viral RNA was found in pharyngeal swabs and blood samples taken from all the ferrets.But researchers unexpectedly discovered a downside when they checked the ferrets’ liver health. Ferrets vaccinated with rMVA-S and exposed to SARS-CoV had elevated levels of an enzyme that indicates liver damage. Examination of liver sections showed that the ferrets had severe hepatitis. Only mild hepatitis was found in the ferrets injected with parental MVA or saline.It’s uncommon to perform the tests that revealed the hepatitis, said Kelly Keith, acting communications manager for the Canadian Science Centre for Human and Animal Health. This study will help ensure that any other SARS vaccine will be safer, as scientists should know to check for this possible side effect.”Extra caution should be taken in proposed human trials of SARS vaccines due to the potential liver damage from immunization and virus infection,” the research report states.Cao said he hopes that others recognize the significance of the hepatitis among the vaccinated ferrets. “For future human vaccine development, we must pay attention to that effect,” he said.The lead author of the study, Hana Weingartl, PhD, head of special pathogens for Canada’s National Microbiology Laboratory in Winnipeg, said she and her fellow researchers are seeking a grant to continue their work. “We would like to look more closely at why we saw the liver damage in those animals,” she said. “It would be good to know what not to do.”The findings underscore how little is understood about SARS, which emerged in southern China in November 2002. Since its discovery, scientists have raced to contain it and develop a vaccine. Weingartl and Cao’s study is one of several vaccine investigations in various stages in several countries.Researchers need a better understanding of how the virus damages the host, Weingartl said.In an unrelated SARS vaccine investigation, the Chinese government yesterday announced that a vaccine proved safe and effective in a phase 1 clinical trial. Thirty-six volunteers who had been vaccinated reported no unusual physical reactions after 56 days, Agence France-Presse reported (AFP). In addition, antibodies were found in 24 of those vaccinated, the story said.Testing began in May with 18 men and 18 women from 21 to 40 years old following what the government termed successful animal tests, AFP reported. The vaccine won’t be ready for commercial use until two more testing phases are completed.Weingartl H, Czub M, Czub S, et al. Immunization with modified vaccinia virus Ankara-based recombinant vaccine against severe acute respiratory syndrome is associated with enhanced hepatitis in ferrets.

Share Sharing is caring! Tweet 32 Views no discussions NewsSports India power past Sri Lanka to Cricket World Cup triumph by: – April 2, 2011 Share Share By Sam SheringhamIndia beat Sri Lanka by six wickets in a pulsating final to deliver World Cup glory to their cricket-mad population for the first time since 1983.Sri Lanka smashed 91 from their last 10 overs to post 274-6 in Mumbai, with Mahela Jayawardene making a superb 103.India lost Virender Sehwag and Sachin Tendulkar early on but Gautam Gambhir and Mahendra Dhoni rebuilt the innings.Gambhir was out for 97, but captain Dhoni’s brilliant unbeaten 91 led India to a famous win with 10 balls to spare.The skipper, struggling for form throughout the tournament, played the innings of his life and sealed the victory with a phenomenal straight six that sailed high into the stands, providing the catalyst for euphoric celebrations in the Wankhede Stadium.Tendulkar’s early dismissal for 18 ensured there was to be no fairytale 100th international century for Mumbai’s favourite son.But wonderful innings from Gambhir and Dhoni ensured the “Little Master” can finally get his hands on the sport’s ultimate prize at the sixth attempt as India became the first host nation to win the tournament, while Jayawardene became the first player to score a hundred in the final and finish on the losing side.Meanwhile, it was a sad end to the incredible career of Sri Lanka off-spinner Muttiah Muralitharan who, having battled injuries throughout the event, failed to take a wicket in his last international match.And when the Sri Lankan inquest begins, they will surely regret the decision to make four changes for the final, only one of which was enforced.With off-spinner Ajantha Mendis dropped, replacement bowlers Thisara Perera, Nuwan Kulasekara and Suraj Randiv managed only one wicket between them from 26.2 overs.Chasing a total 46 runs higher than the previous best under lights at the venue, prolific openers Sehwag and Tendulkar stepped out to a cacophony of noise.But it only took two balls for the mood inside the stadium to be transformed as Sehwag failed to get his bat on a full straight delivery from Lasith Malinga and was trapped in front of his stumps.Tendulkar, seemingly carrying the hopes of a billion Indians on his shoulders, soon had the crowd in a frenzy with two sumptuous boundaries off Kulasekara, but hopes of him reaching the 100 century landmark in the final were to be sadly dashed.Kumar Sangakkara’s decision to give Malinga a fourth over with the new ball proved a masterstroke as the paceman tempted Tendulkar into a swipe outside off stump and a thick edge was taken low by the captain himself behind the stumps.While Malinga wheeled away in celebration with his team-mates in pursuit, a stunned silence fell over the Wankhede.Gambhir and Virat Kohli would have been forgiven for going into their shell but the duo remained positive in seeing India to 105-2 off 20 overs.Their partnership had reached 83 when Kohli got a leading edge to a Tillakaratne Dilshan delivery and was brilliantly caught one-handed by the bowler for 35.Dhoni, whose previous highest score at the tournament was 34, took the brave decision to promote himself up the batting order above Yuvraj Singh and after a watchful start he started to find his range on his favoured off side.The right-hander’s partnership with the left-handed Gambhir kept the Sri Lanka bowlers guessing and gradually the duo chipped away at the total.After taking the score past 200, Dhoni required treatment for a side strain but the skipper did not lose any focus as he leant back and chopped Muralitharan through the off side for four.Without ever batting with the fluency of Jayawardene, Gambhir worked his way to within three of a famous hundred before he was clean bowled by Perera to give Sri Lanka hope.With the score on 241-4, Sri Lanka thought they had run out Dhoni when Kapugadera’s throw hit the stumps but with replays inconclusive, the India skipper was reprieved.After 46 overs, Sangakkara made the surprise decision to throw the ball to Kulasekara instead of the clearly disgruntled Muralitharan and the tactic back-fired as India helped themselves to 11 runs.The same number followed from Malinga’s next over to put India on the brink of victory, before Yuvraj Singh took a single to give Dhoni the strike with four more runs needed.The wicketkeeper-batsman’s stunning final blow provided a fitting end to a memorable final.Earlier, the coin toss was shrouded in confusion as the noise of the crowd rendered Sangakkara’s call inaudible to match referee Jeff Crowe. He ordered a re-toss, which was won by the Sri Lanka captain, who opted to bat to the obvious frustration of his opposite number Dhoni.When the action began, India settled the faster with seamer Zaheer Khan getting straight into rhythm.Suffocating Upul Tharanga with a tight off stump line, he bowled three consecutive maidens before having the batsman caught at slip for two off a perfect outswinger.Dilshan took his tournament run haul to exactly 500 before he was dismissed by Harbhajan Singh in the spinner’s second over. The batsman attempted a sweep but the ball struck his arm and thigh pad before rebounding agonisingly on to his stumps.Veteran pair Sangakkara and Jayawardene got the innings back on track with a partnership of 62 as Sri Lanka reached 122-2 in the 28th over.But their stand was broken by Yuvraj as Sangakkara – two short of his half-century – attempted a square cut to a shorter ball and got a faint edge through to Dhoni.Jayawardene, who reached fifty from 49 balls, produced an innings of impeccable touch and timing, scoring heavily in the third man area and keeping his score moving at a run a ball to drag his team towards a competitive total.But it was the irrepressible Yuvraj who struck the next blow. Thilan Samaraweera got too far across his stumps attempting to sweep and was struck on the thigh. Simon Taufel’s not out decision was overturned on review, with replays showing the ball would have struck middle stump.Zaheer could not be kept out of the limelight for long and a superb slower ball totally deceived Chamara Kapugedera, who could only prod the ball tamely to Suresh Raina at mid-off.At 183-5 going into the last 10 overs, India were well on top but with Jayawardene still at the crease there was every chance of Sri Lanka posting a competitive total.With Kulasekara (32 off 30 balls) scoring quickly at the other end, the former skipper began to take calculated risks, accelerating through the 80s and 90s and bringing up his hundred off 84 balls during the batting powerplay with consecutive boundaries off Zaheer.Kulasekara’s run out brought Perera to the crease with two overs remaining, and the all-rounder did exactly what was needed, swinging from the hip to smash 22 off nine deliveries, including 16 off the last four balls of the innings.But although the late flurry propelled Sri Lanka to a healthy total, Gambhir and Dhoni ensured it was India who joined Australia and the West Indies as the only sides to win the World Cup more than once.Source: BBC Sport

Clint Dempsey admits Tottenham’s season should be judged as a failure if they do not bounce back from their Europa League exit by finishing in the Barclays Premier League’s top four. Dempsey scored twice on Thursday night in a 2-2 draw in Basel, but it was not enough to send Spurs through to the semi-finals of Europe’s second-tier competition as Andre Villas-Boas’ men suffered a dramatic 4-1 defeat on penalties after missed spot-kicks from Tom Huddlestone and Emmanuel Adebayor. Tottenham will drop to fifth if Arsenal win their game in hand against Norwich on Saturday and Dempsey said: “We have to make sure we finish in fourth place and make sure we’re in the Champions League next year. That’s the only thing we can do to salvage this season and say we had a good year. That’s been the goal for the season.” Press Association As Villas-Boas acknowledged in February, failure to qualify for the Champions League could have serious consequences for Spurs. Tottenham’s new year financial results showed a 12 per cent drop in revenue, but the biggest problem caused by another year of failure could be the potential loss of star man Gareth Bale. A 10-day break until their next game against Manchester City – when Villas-Boas expects Bale, Aaron Lennon and Jermain Defoe to be fit again – will work in Tottenham’s favour, but Dempsey has warned his team-mates they still must work extremely hard to make the top four. “The break will help, because the more players you have fit, the more competition there is for spots,” he added. “You need that push towards the end because it’s going to be difficult. “We’ve got some difficult games. We’ve got Chelsea, we’ve got Man City, so we’re going to need everyone fit and fighting to try to push for that Champions League. “It’s not going to be given to you. You have to fight until the end and we’re still in with a shout to make that happen. “I think it’s going to come down to the last game.”
Pale Mimosa made a successful seasonal debut when landing a hard-fought success in the Seamus & Rosemary McGrath Memorial Saval Beg Stakes at Leopardstown and is on standby as a possible Ascot Gold Cup ‘substitute’. The Dermot Weld-trained filly, owned like Rite Of Passage by Dr Ronan Lambe, had not run since October but she knuckled down really well to outpoint Missunited in the final furlong after the Aidan O’Brien-trained El Salvador made sure it was a stiff stamina test by setting a strong pace. He still led as they turned for home but was soon overtaken by Pale Mimosa and Missunited, and Pat Smullen had to keep the 5-4 favourite up to her work to emerge the winner by two and a half lengths. Missunited was second, with El Salvador third and the four other runners some way adrift. Press Association Weld said: “It was a very pleasing introductory run. She has been slow coming into her coat so we took our time with her. She real only came into it in the last 10 days and considering that, I thought it was a very good performance. Pat said it was a very true-run race, and the second is very consistent. “She is entered in the Gold Cup (at Royal Ascot), but she is in the same ownership as Rite Of Passage. He is in very good form and he will run in it unless the ground comes up firm, in which case she will run in it. One concern I had coming here today was ring-rust, and her fitness might get found out. “We will look at all the nice staying fillies’ races across Europe for her now and we might travel with her. The Lillie Langtry and the Park Hill are possibilities. She stays well and she gave a good heave. We should see a nice improvement from her.” Smullen told At The Races: “It was a difficult race because it was her first run for quite a while and she was going to need it a little bit, but her bit of class told. “She’s a progressive filly and was very good last year. You can see from the size of her she was always going to get better with a bit more time. Her work had been nice, but my worry was if she had just come in time for this race, but it was a lovely place to start her off.”
THE Guyana Motor Racing and Sports Club (GMR&SC) has secured sponsorship from Motor Trend Service Centre for the upcoming International Drag race event dubbed 1320 heat.In a release to the media, GMR&SC acknowledged their gratitude for the support given and explained that running off a motor racing event is very costly, so every dollar earned is appreciated.The correspondence further noted that “The Company has long been supporters of Motor Sport in Guyana.”Additional documentation explained that “The GMR&SC is constantly looking to upgrade the South Dakota Circuit. This year, the club made a target of completing the Launch Pad and extending the strip to a full quarter-mile. Both objectives were reached due to the generous contributions of sponsors, support by the fans and, very importantly, the competitors.”President of the GMR&SC, Rameez Mohamed, confirmed via correspondence to the media earlier in the month that Team Mohamed’s newly-acquired white Nissan GT-R is set to finally make its competitive debut at the event after missing out in March due to transmission issues.Over 100 competitors are expected to register for the event which will see the driver with the fastest reaction win $200,000.More importantly, DEL Ice Co has sponsored cash prizes for the fastest 11 and 12 seconds ($100,000) each.Admission stands at $1000 for children and $2000 for adults.
