Mens Lacrosse Jack Jasinski finds path to becoming crucial player for Ohio

Mens Lacrosse Jack Jasinski finds path to becoming crucial player for Ohio

Then-sophomore attackman Jack Jasinski heads for the goal in the fourth quarter during the first round of the NCAA tournament against Loyola Maryland on May 14, 2017. Credit: Sheridan Hendrix | Former Oller ReporterOhio State lacrosse senior midfielder Jack Jasinski is currently the top point scorer for the Buckeyes, but the Alabama native is focused on helping his teammates and changing the way people see lacrosse in his home state.Jasinski grew up in Birmingham, an area not known for lacrosse the way it is for football or basketball. His high school days weren’t normal due to him taking up the sport.“It was very, very different. I think there are only 13 high school teams in the whole state for lacrosse,” Jasinski said.Jasinski found lacrosse through his older brother, who decided to take up the sport while Jasinski was in the eighth grade. He was focused on baseball at the time, but decided to give lacrosse a chance. “I didn’t expect it,” Jasinski said. “I was like, ‘I’ll probably still play baseball,’ and I ended [up] playing lacrosse, and I’ve pretty much never looked back.”Now, as the top scorer for the Buckeyes with 26 points, Jasinski has become one of the most important players on the No. 4-ranked lacrosse team.“He’s a guy that just continues to get better and better,” Ohio State head coach Nick Myers said.Jasinski is usually one of the shortest players each time he takes the field, standing at 5 feet 7 inches, but his mentality has helped make him the top scorer of the only undefeated team left in the Top 25. “I’ve always had a chip on my shoulder, just being from Alabama, just being from a small area,” Jasinski said.His development has never been more evident than during this season. Jasinski broke onto the scene after an impressive junior season that was enough for him to be named on the Big Ten Watch List.“When he got here, he was probably a little bit more raw than not,” Myers said. “But I think he’s really developed well into a lacrosse player.”Not only has Jasinski made a difference to the stat sheet, he has also embraced the role of a leader that comes with being a senior.Hei is one of seven seniors on the Ohio State roster that is making team culture a priority.Despite not being named a captain, Jasinski still takes on that role and shows his support for the players named captains.“The guys that were selected captains were selected because they’re really good leaders,” Jasinski said. ”I have nothing but support and praise. They’ve done a great job this year.”Off the field, Jasinski took a service trip this past summer to help people in Puerto Rico.“I went down there and was blown away, their culture there, the positivity they bring, they had gone through a lot in the past 24 months with hurricanes,” Jasinski said. “It gives you a good perspective like, ‘You know what? You don’t really have a lot to complain about here.’”During the trip, Jasinski went to a village where it was difficult for the residents to get supplies in order to fix the houses affected by the hurricanes. He helped paint houses, give supplies, meet with local community members and hand out shoes to the kids who didn’t have any.The senior midfielder credits that trip to Puerto Rico for changing him as a teammate and reminding himself that things could be much worse. In the wake of graduation, Jasinski’s hopes to keep playing lacrosse as long as he can.“If I get the opportunity, that’d be awesome,” Jasinski said.With the Dallas Rattlers taking Jasinski with the 37th pick in the Major League Lacrosse draft, it looks like the undersized player from Alabama will get his opportunity. read more

Duke of Cambridge turns interviewer as he quizzes Sir David Attenborough at

Duke of Cambridge turns interviewer as he quizzes Sir David Attenborough at

25 September 0

The Duke of Cambridge has asked Sir David Attenborough for advice on how he can help to save the planet as he steps into a role as a global “leader”, promising the hard work will happen on his generation’s watch.The Duke, who is second in line to the throne, asked the naturalist how he and his peers can “build on what you have started”, as Sir David warned about the “extermination” of species.The pair spoke on stage in Davos, the annual gathering of the World Economic Forum, where the Duke turned interviewer for a special session recognising Sir David’s contribution to the natural world.The session saw Sir David speak of his renewed hope that world leaders were paying attention to critical environmental issues.He also used the platform to discuss his new Netflix show, Our Planet. Despite a lifelong career at the BBC, he said he had been impressed with the streaming service’s worldwide reach, adding: “This picture of the world will be coming worldwide simultaneously on one particular date and remain there.” He told Sir David: “People of my generation now are beginning to step into positions of leadership around the world.“The work to save the planet is probably largely going to happen on our watch. What advice do you have for my generation and what can we build on that you have started?”Sir David replied: “There has never been a time when more people have been out of touch with the natural world, than there is now. Every year the WEF asks its members to rank the most pressing problems in the world ahead of the gathering in Davos. This year, climate change concerns topped the “worry list”.The Duke was interviewing Sir David in a packed Congress Hall, the biggest room at the World Economic Forum in Davos. The event had been moved from earlier in the day and a smaller room because of”unprecedented demand” from delegates to attend the event, according to WEF officials. Today, delegates were shown a clip from Our Planet showing an iceberg the size of a skyscraper shearing off and plunging into the sea. Explaining how the clip had been filmed, Sir David said he had huge respect for the helicopter pilots who had to dodge tidal waves and massive up draughts of air to get the camera crews in close.  The Duke of Cambridge and Sir David Attenborough at DavosCredit:PA  The Duke, a former air ambulance helicopter pilot, said: “All helicopter pilots are skilful, David.” The Davos session saw him question Sir David on the challenges facing the planet he and his children will live on, including why previous leaders had taken “so long” with “quite a few faltering steps” to act on the environment.“Because the connection between the natural world and urban world has been remote and widening,” said Sir David. His father, the Prince of Wales, is deeply interested in conservation and has been giving speeches about climate change for decades.The Duke’s words were a public acknowledgement of the leadership role he has been moving towards for some time, as he moved back to London to take on more official duties from the Queen, and undertook a statesmanlike trip to the Middle East.

The Duke turns interviewer at DavosCredit:AFP The Duke turns interviewer at Davos A clip from Our Planet, screened during the Q&A “Now it’s possible to put on a transmission and it’s seen worldwide by hundreds of millions of people, and will go on being seen.“This picture of the world will be coming worldwide simultaneously on one particular date and remain there.” “We didn’t realise the effect of what we were doing out there. Now we are seeing that almost everything we do has its echoes and implications across the natural world.“We have now to really care for what we do [because] we can exterminate things without even knowing.”The Duke said: “The repercussions go for generations.”Speaking specifically about Our Planet, the Duke asked why Sir David had chosen to work with “the WWF, Silverback Films and Netflix”.“By putting it on Netflix it became possible overnight to reach 150m people, immediately,” said Sir David.“In the 1950s, television in Britain was seen by a few million people in southern England. Prince Charles and Princess Anne meet naturalist David Attenborough at Lime Grove Studios on the 4th January, 1958. “We have to recognise that every breath of air we take, every mouthful of food we take, comes from the natural world.”And if we damage the natural world, we damage ourselves. We are one coherent ecosystem.”It’s not just a question of beauty, or interest, or wonder: it’s the essential part of human life is a healthy planet.”The Duke, who is patron of Tusk and conservation group United For Wildlife, has previously also warned that the clock is ticking towards a tipping point when human beings’ impact on the environment will be irreversible. As the Duke tried out his new role as interrogator, he admitted: “Normally I have to endure people asking me questions, so it’s quite nice to turn the tables for once.” Prince William and David Attenborough discuss the challenges facing the natural worldCredit:AFP read more

Le génome du kangourou enfin décrypté

Le génome du kangourou enfin décrypté

20 September 0

first_imgLe génome du kangourou enfin décryptéPour la première fois, des chercheurs sont parvenus à séquencer le génome du kangourou. Un travail qui leur a permis entre autres, d’identifier les gènes responsables des fantastiques sauts de ces marsupiaux, selon une étude publiée vendredi.  Marsupial emblématique de l’Australie, le kangourou a déjà fait l’objet de nombreuses études scientifiques qui se sont intéressées à son comportement mais aussi à ses étonnantes capacités de saut. Mais, jusqu’ici, aucune n’avait été consacrée à décrypter le génome de l’animal sauteur. C’est désormais chose faite grâce à un consortium de scientifiques de cinq pays différents : Australie, États-Unis, Japon, Angleterre et Allemagne. Plus précisément, c’est en fait le génome du Macropus eugenii, petit kangourou australien, que les chercheurs ont séquencé et détaillé dans la revue Genome biology. “Le séquençage du tammar walliby nous a fourni de nombreuses possibilités de comprendre combien les marsupiaux sont différents de nous”, a ainsi expliqué le professeur Marilyn Renfree de l’université de Melbourne. En effet, grâce à ces travaux, les chercheurs ont pu révéler quelques secrets des étonnantes caractéristiques biologiques des kangourous, et en particulier leur mode de reproduction et de gestation peu commun. A l’état sauvage, les femelles mettent au monde un unique petit aux alentours du 22 janvier, environ un mois après le jour le plus long dans l’hémisphère sud. Une “extrême synchronisation saisonnière” qui a toujours fasciné les scientifiques, sans qu’ils puissent pour autant l’expliquer. Mais ce n’est pas tout. Tout juste né, le petit pèse à peine un demi-gramme et mesure 1,6 millimètres de long. Il rejoint alors la poche de sa mère où il restera pendant 9 à 10 mois pour téter un lait dont la composition s’adapte au fur et à mesure au développement du petit, rapporte l’AFP.Des gènes impliqués dans la formation du lait maternel À lire aussiLe tardigrade, cet animal quasi indestructible, révèle la clé de ses super-pouvoirsEn vérité, quelques heures à peine après la naissance, la mère conçoit déjà un nouvel embryon en s’accouplant avec un mâle, mais l’ovule fécondé attend 11 mois avant d’entamer son développement qui débutera donc fin décembre et durera 26 jours. Puis le petit succédera à son ainé dans la poche de la mère. Au cours des travaux réalisés, le décryptage du génome n’a en fait pas vraiment permis de percer les secrets de cette reproduction. Toutefois, les chercheurs ont identifié des gènes permettant au lait maternel d’avoir un effet antibiotique qui protège le nouveau-né d’infections par certaines bactéries. Une découverte qui pourrait “être utile pour produire de futurs traitements pour les humains”, relève le Pr Renfree. En outre, les scientifiques ont également isolé des gènes impliqués dans les capacités de saut du kangourou et près de 1.500 responsables de leur excellent odorat. Enfin, comme toujours, décrypter le génome fournit également un grand nombre d’éléments pour comprendre l’évolution au cours de l’histoire de l’espèce étudiée.  Le 21 août 2011 à 16:11 • Maxime Lambertlast_img read more

Newsweek Uses Semantics to Boost CPM

Newsweek Uses Semantics to Boost CPM

14 September 0

first_imgNewsweek recently adopted the Peer39 technology. While the magazine is still in it “earliest stages” using the platform, Newsweek Digital general manager Geoff Reiss said the potential revenue generation was attractive. “We decided to partner with Peer39 because we were impressed with the core concept of the business and the technology,” he said. “The ability to derive greater value out of already existing inventory is a potentially significant win for publishers and an opportunity too important to ignore.”Implementation of the Peer39 platform does not require an IT investment on the part of the publisher, said Solomon. “The integration is simple and can be achieved within a matter of hours,” he said. “We work directly with publishers’ ad operations teams and their existing systems. There is no extra hardware or software expense.”Publishers can either be charged an annual flat rate gauged by the number of impressions or a per-CPM fee, Solomon said. Publishers now have yet another tool for monetizing the content on their Web sites. The Peer39 platform uses semantic targeting technology to analyze publishers’ stock of URL categories and more precisely match advertisements to related editorial content.The semantic technology “targets ads online according to the meaning and sentiment of Web pages,” Peer39 CEO Amiad Solomon told FOLIO:. “When ads are targeted with this degree of relevance to the page, with the brands of advertisers protected, that means publishers can get more revenue from each page of their content.”Using semantic targeting makes more use of existing URL inventory by automatically increasing the number of relevant categories for each page, according to the company. For example, Peer39’s SemanticMatch system can take one page from a particular, lower CPM section on a Web site and categorize into other, higher performing categories, depending on the “meaning” of the page.“Simply put, our technology understands the difference between ‘The Amazon is a great place to visit,’ which has a travel topic, and ‘Amazon is a great place to visit,’ which has an e-commerce topic,” Solomon said. “In addition, because we analyze each page on the fly, we can determine if the page contains objectionable content. We pass that information on so top-tier advertisers can protect their brands from appearing where they don’t want to be associated.”last_img read more

Former NICU Parent Helps Other Families Navigate A Stressful Time

Former NICU Parent Helps Other Families Navigate A Stressful Time

09 September 0

first_imgMost people working in a Newborn Intensive Care Unit have some type of advanced medical degree. But one employee at The Children’s Hospital at Providence in Anchorage has a very different set of qualifications. Ginny Shaffer spent more than three months in the NICU as a parent, with her daughter who was born at 23 weeks. Now she helps other parents through one of the most stressful times of their lives as a Parent Navigator.Download AudioA mini chalk board outside Emily Bressler’s NICU room playfully charts her ‘escape attempts’ from the hospital. Her mom Liz says she’s come close to going home at least a dozen times in the last four months.“Someone would come into the room and they’d say well you could be outta here in two weeks, she’s doing good right now,” Bressler says. “And then at the end of two weeks, something would happen, I called them her medical temper tantrums and it was just enough to keep her here.”Emily had her first medical temper tantrum the day after she was born- a hearty eight pounds, one ounce- in Fairbanks. She started vomiting, couldn’t poop and was medevaced to the Providence NICU in Anchorage. Emily was diagnosed with Hirschsprung’s Disease, which affects the colon. She needed surgery- three in all- to be able to pass stool.Bressler’s husband had to stay home in Fairbanks, caring for the couple’s three other young kids.“I kind off keep my sanity by cracking jokes. And we make the best signs,” Bressler says. “Emily has one that says ‘kiss my little red wagon’, and ‘if you wake me, you take me.’ And it’s great to have that lightness.”The other half of that ‘we’ Bressler is talking about is NICU Parent Navigator Ginny Shaffer.“If I can make her smile with a sign, then we’re going to make as many signs as possible,” Shaffer says.Shaffer has also helped Bressler find a spot for her espresso machine, a vital piece of equipment when your home is a hospital room. And then there’s the tougher stuff. Shaffer is someone Bressler can talk to when Emily has surgery or a setback. She also helps Bressler advocate for Emily’s unique care needs with doctors.Shaffer says every family needs help in different ways.“I want to walk into a room and I want somebody to see that there’s somebody that’s going to help them and it’s just their needs I’m looking to support,” Shaffer says.Ten years ago, Shaffer was the one who needed support. She was 23 weeks pregnant with twins- a boy and a girl, when she felt funny and went to the hospital. Her tiny babies (both weighed less than 1.5 pounds) were born five hours later. Her son Bryson experienced seizures, brain bleeds and problems with internal organs. When he was 45 days old, Shaffer and her husband made the difficult decision to remove life support.The day after Bryson died, a nurse suggested a first bath for their daughter, Holland.“And they got out this little bitty pink hospital basin, this little tub that was too big for her and this heat lamp and we got this really great photo,” Shaffer remembers. “The nurse said, ‘how many people does it take to give a two pound baby a bath?’ And we’re all smiling- ‘five!’ And that was a really pivotal moment in our life because I didn’t really know how to go forward.”Holland spent 99 days in the NICU. After that experience, Shaffer was glad to be home, but she missed the daily connections with hospital staff and other NICU families. When Holland was two years old, the NICU Parent Navigator job opened up and it seemed like a natural fit for Shaffer, even though her background is in real estate, not healthcare.Eight years later, Shaffer’s office- with huge glass windows, is the first thing you see walking into the unit. It’s filled with stuffed animals, infant clothes and a bowl of chocolate to entice parents to sit down and talk. Shaffer also works to get families connecting with each other:“We try and get creative with some of our offerings,” Shaffer says. “We’ve done National Fried Chicken Day- a quirky celebration, but it kind of creates a giggle and then people are curious, ‘the NICU’s celebrating National Fried Chicken Day? Let’s go see what it’s about.’ And connections are made.”Another piece of Shaffer’s job is advocating for families with hospital administrators. She helped design the new NICU that opened two years ago to be as parent- and baby- friendly as possible. Right now, she’s pushing for a more relaxed visitors policy. No visitors are allowed at shift change, when confidential information is exchanged. It’s a holdover from the days when the unit was open, with no private rooms.“If my neighbor is here and she’s my best friend and she can help me or get me a tissue or a drink, then why not let her stay? You can shut my door and give me some privacy and then I won’t overhear the confidential exchange of information that happens at shift change,” Shaffer says.But one of best job perks for Shaffer is celebrating family milestones. And a recent day brings a big one. A parade of doctors and nurse are stopping by Emily Bressler’s room to say goodbye and take pictures. After 127 days in the NICU, she is finally making her escape.Bressler is thrilled to be going home to her husband and kids, but sad too- to say goodbye to the support network of Shaffer and all the NICU staff. She says it’s a little like trading one family for another.last_img read more

From sports to work Rohingya women face new roles in refugee camp

03 September 0

first_imgRohingya refugees visit a community health care center to receive health check-ups and free baby food at Kutupalang Unregistered Refugee Camp, in Cox’s Bazar, Bangladesh 5 February 2017. Photo: ReutersOn a blue mat in their mud and bamboo home in the middle of the world’s largest refugee settlement, Mohammad Selim is pacing his 9-year-old daughter Nasima Akter on her taekwondo drill.As a local taekwondo champion in his Rohingya district in Myanmar before fleeing to Bangladesh 18 months ago, Selim dreamed of making a career of his sport but now he is hoping that his daughter can instead follow that path.He said in Myanmar it was impossible to teach her, as taekwondo was considered improper for girls and he didn’t have time, but their flight to camps near Cox’s Bazar in southeast Bangladesh has started to change his society’s rules for women.For women and girls make up about 55 per cent of the 900,000 plus mainly Muslim Rohingya living in about 34 sprawling, crowded camps in the settlement and they are needed to work or to run households as many have lost their husbands.”I want my daughter to learn taekwondo and one day represent us as a champion,” Selim, 35, told the Thomson Reuters Foundation via an interpreter watched by his wife and three other younger children in their tidy, two-room shelter.”Our society is conservative and we prefer covering our women but in taekwondo you are covered so people can’t question a girl participating. We practise inside to not get criticised but many people regret they cannot teach their daughters.”With most Rohingya now in Bangladesh for 18 months and life starting to become more routine in the camps, Selim is not the only one breaking away from the Rohingya’s previous lifestyle, where women rarely left the house and were segregated from men.He is hoping to get approval to teach taekwondo to other girls in the camps where children do not have access to a formal education but can attend learning centres until about age 14.More than 730,000 Rohingya have fled Buddhist-dominated Myanmar since August 2017 to escape a military offensive the United Nations called “ethnic cleansing” of one of the world’s most oppressed people, joining others already in Bangladesh.The chance of returning soon to Myanmar looks remote, with Bangladesh vowing to only repatriate volunteers.The UN special rapporteur on human rights in Myanmar, Yanghee Lee, said in late January it was clear they cannot return “in the near future” with the situation in Myanmar unchanged.Myanmar has denied most allegations of persecution.Women-Only AreasAid agencies and non-government organisations (NGOs) working alongside Bangladesh’s government in the camps were aware from the outset that women and girls were vulnerable to sexual and other violence, both on their journey and in the camps.To address this, they have set up women-only projects and committees to encourage women to get involved in the community as well as counselling services for those who faced abuse.But not all Rohingya men used to a conservative Islamic lifestyle are happy to see women taking on new roles and making decisions, adding to the risk of domestic violence which aid groups said is on the rise in the camps as time goes by.”Some men say it is a sin for women to work because in Myanmar we never worked,” said Nuran Kis, 40, a Rohingya mother of eight, who is teaching others to sew in a women-only centre.”My husband supports me though because we need money and want to survive,” she told the Thomson Reuters Foundation, sitting cross-legged in her two-room home on a hill overlooking Balukhali camp, a maze of dirt roads and makeshift shelters.Shameema Akhter, who co-ordinates eight women-friendly spaces in Balukhali camp for BRAC, Bangladesh’s largest NGO, said some men were initially reluctant to allow women and girls to come to these centres but gradually that was changing.She said they ran craft sessions for the women and girls, taught them to sew, talked to them about the risk of rape, human trafficking, and child marriage, how to manage hygiene, and provided one-on-one counselling for anyone abused.Akhter said when they arrived many girls were given sanitary pads, but had no idea how to use them and cut them up as face tissues while handouts of cereal, a food item not known to the Rohingya, were sold at markets for a fraction of the real value.Most of the Rohingya are illiterate, having had limited access to education – and healthcare – in Myanmar’s Rakhine state where they were refused citizenship and free movement.”Many of the girls were depressed and traumatized about being raped or being forced by their families to get married and very shy,” Akhter told the Thomson Reuters Foundation in the group’s centre decorated with brightly coloured paper cutouts.”But now they want to come here and learn skills that might help them and their families in the future.”Limited WorkUnder Bangladesh government rules, Rohingya cannot take formal employment, but they can join cash-for-work schemes run by NGOs in the camps to earn about 400 Bangladeshi taka (US$5) a day – and some women have taken roles previously only for men.Dola Banu, 35, is one of the women building roads and other infrastructure under a Site Maintenance Engineering Project (SMEP) run by United Nations agencies International Organization for Migration (IOM), World Food Programme (WFP) and UNHCR.”This is the first time I have ever done any kind of work like this,” Banu told the Thomson Reuters Foundation via an interpreter during a break from carrying bricks for a new road.”I like this work and want to keep doing it as long as I can to support my family,” said Banu, who is raising her four children as a single mother after her husband died.Aid workers said these new roles were giving women more confidence and more were willing to take leadership roles in the community so they could raise issues such as the need for more lighting by latrines, where women fear being attacked at night.”This is a group going through forced societal change and women are finding new forms of confidence,” said Gemma Snowdon, a WFP spokeswoman based in the beachside town of Cox’s Bazar about 40 km (25 miles) from the nearest of the camps.She said a key barrier for female-led households was childcare so they planned to launch mobile child care and boost self-reliance by teaching women skills such as growing vegetables, sewing, and even repairing mobile phones.Some help has come from outside the settlement as well.Launched late last year, the Testimony Tailors website https://testimonytailors.com lets users fund and pick garments to be made by about 40 female Rohingya, with finished items donated to refugees in the camps.Jamila Hanan, a British-based manager at #Hands4Rohingya, which supports the project, said all the women and girls involved in the project were aged between 15 and 40 and survivors of rape or massacres.Many had witnessed family members being killed”This cooperative is them helping themselves … It has been incredible to see them supporting each other,” said Hanan.While some Rohingya are struggling to accept women’s new roles and projects such as encouraging girls to play football, for others like Nasima Akter, the changes are part of adjusting to life in the camps for the foreseeable future.”I want to be a champion and bring pride to my people,” she said with a big smile.last_img read more

Why the Shutdown Was a Big Deal for Housing

15 August 0

first_img The end of the longest shutdown in the history of the nation is finally in sight with President Trump announcing on Friday that he had agreed to reopen the federal government for three weeks. During this time, he said that negotiations on the border wall would continue with the Congress.”I am very proud to announce today, that we have reached a deal to end the shutdown and reopen the federal government,” Trump said. “As everyone knows I have a very powerful alternative but I didn’t want to use it at this time. Hopefully, it will be unnecessary.”Trump said that if the Republicans and Democrats could not reach an agreement on the wall funding by the February deadline, he was ready to renew the confrontation or declare a national emergency to bypass Congress altogether.Thanking the 800,000 federal workers who have been on furlough or are working without pay during the shutdown, Trump said that these workers were “incredible patriots.””In a short while I will sign a bill to open our government for three weeks until February 15,” he announced.According to The New York Times, the President’s announcement “paved the way for Congress to quickly pass Spending Bills that Trump would sign to restore normal operations at a series of federal agencies until February 15 and begin paying the federal workers who have been furloughed. The plan does not include money for the wall that the President and demanded initially.HUD Will ReopenOne of the many federal agencies that have been affected by the shutdown in the Department of Housing and Urban Development (HUD), which recently issued guidelines on what lenders and borrowers could do to address their concerns. The guidelines, in the form of frequently asked questions (FAQ), give lenders and servicers a sense of the business they could and couldn’t do with HUD during the shutdown. They include questions on the departments that would be open, submitting FHA mortgage insurance premiums, submitting loans for approvals as well as packages for condo approvals, payments to borrowers, FHA monitoring, and guidelines related to REO/HUD home sales.Speaking to NPR at an annual Point-In-Time headcount survey in Washington, D.C. on Thursday, HUD Secretary Dr. Ben Carson had said that the longer the shutdown goes, the harder it would be on federal employees. “These federal workers, I mean, yes I know we’re going to give them back pay, but that doesn’t take care of the interest if they borrow money,” Carson said.Around 95 percent of HUD employees have been furloughed and those who have been called back to work without pay were “working around the clock” to make sure Americans who rely on HUD for housing assistance don’t get evicted, Carson told NPR.The end of the shutdown, even if it seems to be temporary is likely to give much relief not only to federal workers but also to tenants who were housed through HUD and landlords who work with the agency to provide housing to low-income households.The shutdown had already started affecting those housed through HUD, as well as independent landlords who were working with government employees unable to pay their rent. While none of the 1,175 rental contracts that were not renewed by HUD due to the shutdown were likely to affect low-income tenants, according to the National Housing Conference (NHC), this could have changed if the shutdown extended past February. NHC said that HUD staff was working with landlords across the country to ensure this does not happen. Additionally, contracts were being paid with available funds, and landlords were being told to use their reserves to cover operating expenses.Taking Steps to Help BorrowersA number of financial institutions including the GSEs stepped up their efforts to provide relief to borrowers during the shutdown.Fannie Mae and Freddie Mac issued an additional set of guidelines for lenders to help them assist borrowers, especially federal workers, whose income was affected by the government shutdown. In a joint letter to lenders, the government-sponsored enterprises (GSEs) said that with the shutdown extending for a longer than anticipated time, they were “concerned about the impact that continued income interruption may have on borrowers’ ability to meet their mortgage payment and other monthly obligations.”The Federal Housing Administration (FHA) has also called on all approved mortgagees and lenders to assist federal workers and contractors impacted by the shutdown. “In accordance with its longstanding policy, FHA expects mortgagees to assist borrowers experiencing a loss of income to the greatest extent possible by extending special forbearance plans to borrowers impacted by the shutdown, and fully evaluating borrowers for available loss mitigation options to avoid foreclosure whenever possible,” FHA Commissioner Brian Montgomery said.Bank of America reached out to clients who may be impacted by the partial federal government shutdown to make them aware of its Client Assistance program.“We know the partial federal government shutdown is affecting many of our clients, and we want them to know that we are here to help,” said Aron Levine, Head of Consumer Banking, Bank of America. “Our Client Assistance Program is available to individuals affected by the shutdown for personalized financial assistance, tailored to their specific situation and financial needs.”Chase has also offered hardship programs to customers who have been affected by financial strain, unemployment, or natural disasters. The bank has said that it will automatically waive or refund overdraft and monthly service fees on Chase checking and savings accounts if an employee’s salary from an affected federal agency was direct-deposited into the account in November 2018.“We’re here for our government worker customers whose pay may be disrupted,” said Thasunda Duckett, CEO of Consumer Banking at Chase. “We all hope this will be resolved soon.”Congresswoman Maxine Waters (D-California), Chairwoman of the House Financial Services Committee sent a letter to the heads of the Federal Reserve, Federal Deposit Insurance Corporation, Consumer Financial Protection Bureau, Office of the Comptroller of the Currency, and National Credit Union Administration, urging them to consider the needs of consumers who may be experiencing temporary financial hardship in meeting credit obligations as a result of the shutdown.“This is important to ensure that customers can meet loan payments and avoid high fees and other penalties that they may otherwise incur,” Waters wrote in her letter. “Through no fault of their own, some affected federal employees and others, such as federal contractors, may be unable to pay all their bills on time because of the shutdown.” January 25, 2019 1,921 Views Share in Daily Dose, Featured, Government, Newscenter_img Why the Shutdown Was a Big Deal for Housing Borrowers Carson government shutdown HUD Lenders Trump 2019-01-25 Radhika Ojhalast_img read more
