‘He thinks he’s Ronaldo!’ – Neville slams Arnautovic

It was so poor, and it heaps so much pressure on the manager.”With West Ham now 17th in the standings, Carragher fears for the future of Bilic in the dugout.“That’s the kind of performance that gets the manager sacked,” he added.last_img read more

Golden Goal: Ronaldo for Barcelona v Compostela (1996)

first_img Twitter Sign up for our daily football email The Fiver. It’s a shame that Barcelona fans can never quite enjoy this goal fully. Ronaldo left for Inter amid such acrimony that he didn’t even win the club’s player of the year award, with Luis Enrique nominated by the fans instead. “I’d prefer to have scored it with Real Madrid, to be honest,” he told a Spanish TV show in 2016, nominating it as his favourite of his 414 career strikes.In retrospect, it’s all quite poignant. When we see someone do something this good, there’s always a half-assumption (hope?) they’ll be that good forever. He continued being that version of Ronaldo for another couple of years, but then came the World Cup final and the ruinous knee injuries. He was brilliant for years afterwards and his greatest achievements came post-2002 comeback, but as a spectacle he was merely human. Plenty of goals came, but none as awe-inspiring. Still, some where underwhelmed. Compostela’s president José María Caneda looked on and decided he’d seen better. “Ronaldo’s goal was shitty,” Caneda concluded. “He stumbled through and if I was there, I’d make sure to nudge him and then we’d see if it happened.” You really can’t please everyone. Share on LinkedIn Pinterest Twitter Golden goal Pinterest Barcelona Sometimes, you’re remembered for being close to history, rather than making it. Take SD Compostela: for most of their existence they’ve played in the Spanish regional leagues, but their four seasons in the top flight in the mid-1990s just happened to coincide with one of the greatest individual campaigns football has ever seen. Pretty much everyone outside of Spain remembers them for one moment, in a game they lost 5-1.Ronaldo scored 47 goals in 1996-97, his only season at Barcelona, but it isn’t the numbers that make nostalgics go moist at the eye. At the most basic level, what thrilled in that season was his combination of speed and delicacy, impossible control at implausible pace, one of those rare players who appealed both viscerally and cerebrally. “I’m just a regular player – he’s on another planet,” said Juan Antonio Pizzi, the poor sod who occasionally had to deputise for him.Of those goals, it’s tempting to nominate the one, in a hat-trick against Valencia, scored after he barrelled through an imperceptible gap between two defenders, like the Millennium Falcon bursting out of the second Death Star before it exploded. Or another against Deportivo, when he is fouled, the ball returns to him while he’s on the floor facing away from goal: he gets up, races past two defenders and scores before anyone else realises what’s going on. At this stage, Ronaldo almost loses control, the ball escaping beyond his one-yard gravity field for the first time since the halfway line. No matter: obviously nobody else was going to react quicker to this brief escape, and ultimately this nanosecond of lost control only serves to tee up a perfect shooting chance. Then the ball is in the bottom corner.On the sidelines, an assistant coach called José Mourinho celebrates wildly. But manager Bobby Robson clasps his hands to head and almost looks annoyed, as if he’s just seen a goal so good that the continuation of football is now pointless, and he’ll have to find something else to do. “You won’t find a player who can score goals like that,” said Robson after the game. “Can anybody, anywhere, show me a better player?”You know a goal is good when the referee tries muscling in on the credit. “I felt very satisfied with my own part in that goal,” said Victor Esquinas Torres years later. “I could have blown for a foul on him several times but I let him keep going and going … my goodness.”Nike turned it into an advert, footage of the goal garnished only with the slogan “What if you asked God to make you the best soccer player in the world? And he was actually listening?” If even marketing people step back and decide on the “less is more” approach, it suggests something quite special. Share on Twitter features Share via Email Facebook Facebook center_img At this stage, everyone in the stadium has their eyes on Ronaldo, jaws slackening – absolutely everyone, including Compostela goalkeeper Fernando Peralta. “He stopped and he started again and when I saw him coming I was thinking: ‘Oh my God, this guy is amazing,’” Fernando said. Even if you were playing against Ronaldo, even though you were being paid to stop him, you couldn’t help but turn into a gawping child, staring in wonder at this act of God in Nike boots.Ronaldo then accelerates so implausibly it looks like the film had been sped up. “To score a goal like that you need to have peripheral vision – [the defenders] hardly give you time to think,” Ronaldo said, years later. José Ramón is left for dead, and Brazilian defender William closes in. William had a reputation for being uncompromising, but you have to get near your prey to take it down. “If I had been in the stands, I would have applauded,” he said. He might as well have been.Ronaldo cuts back inside, a brief lateral interlude which allowed Ramón to almost catch up, when he and William try to sandwich Ronaldo. But another lightning shimmy, ball transferred from foot-to-foot in less than a blink of the eye, takes care of that. Pinterest Twitter Share on WhatsApp Facebook Share on Facebook Share on Pinterest Twitter Reuse this content Share on Messenger Pinterest Facebook And then, of course, there’s the one against Compostela, on a drizzly October evening in 1996.It all starts innocently enough. In the 36th minute Gica Popescu wins the ball in the Barcelona half, stabbing it vaguely in the direction of the centre circle, where Ronaldo loomed. Even though Ronaldo was in the early weeks of his career in Spain, the Compostela defenders already know enough to realise they’re in trouble. In their panic, two cartoonishly collide, and the ball breaks loose again.Ronaldo skips away from the defender pile-up and goes after the ball, where he’s met by midfielder Saïd Chiba. Perhaps mindful that conventional weapons are of no use here, Chiba immediately gives up any pretence winning the ball and goes for the basic solution of trying to foul Ronaldo.He does that six times: a hook to the back of the left leg which nearly takes Ronaldo down; a sweep to his left ankle; then another; then he takes a meaty fistful of Kappa shirt, attempting to haul his man back via Italian sportswear; that drags Ronaldo back for just long enough to attempt another kick; then a final, desperate barge into his back.The fouls succeed as far as to give the brief impression Ronaldo had lost control of the ball, but with a speed of thought that convinces you his brains must be in his feet, he stops it with his studs for just long enough that Chiba thinks he’s got him, and curtails his assault.No dice. Ronaldo breaks free, Chiba looking like a man who’s just vainly tried to prevent a horse bolting from a stable. Two years later Chiba, a Moroccan international, nearly finished the job he tried to start, planting his studs into Ronaldo’s thigh during a 1998 World Cup group match. It didn’t work then either: Ronaldo scored in a 3-0 win for Brazil. Topicslast_img read more

It’s become more of a hobby for me lately than anything else and probably that’s why it’s more fun again,” said the Finn, who was much more in the spotlight at Ferrari.”I always try to do the best that I can. Some days it goes a bit better than others – but that’s how it goes when you do a lot of racing. Some days it’s a bit more tricky than others. It’s never really been an issue.”When I feel that it’s not what I expect from myself, then obviously I try to find a new hobby after that.”Formula One is celebrating its 1,000th world championship race in Shanghai and Raikkonen, who made his debut with Sauber – the team that is now Alfa – in 2001 has started 293 of them and won 21.Retired Brazilian Rubens Barrichello holds the record of 322 starts which means Raikkonen, whose contract runs to the end of next year, is on course to overtake him midway through the 2020 season.Raikkonen, who joined Alfa from Ferrari at the end of last season, has made a strong start with 10 points from two races and is sixth overall. Team mate Antonio Giovinazzi has yet to open his tally.advertisementAsked whether the performance had changed his goals for the season, Raikkonen shrugged.”No, it hasn’t. I didn’t really have any goals, so it’s pretty hard to change them. I can’t really talk about last year’s car,” he said.”So from my side it’s hard to say what is better on this car than the one they had last year… but I think in general it’s quite a good, solid package and we understand it pretty OK and they seem to have good guys on all areas to bring new stuff.”With several other drivers set to race with special helmet designs to commemorate the 1,000th race, Raikkonen said he had nothing new.”I wanted to have an open-face helmet but there were some regulation issues,” said the Finn, who has said before he would have liked to race in the much more dangerous 1960s and 70s.Also Read | Formula One celebrates its 1,000th race, give or take a fewFor sports news, updates, live scores and cricket fixtures, log on to indiatoday.in/sports.

Be a Fungi and Get to Know Your Medicinal Mushrooms

first_img All 21 Six Flags Parks in the U.S., Ranked The Best Whiskey Quotes of All Time Editors’ Recommendations Portion Control: The Best Meal Prep Containers on the Market How to Shave With a Straight Razor Children can be forgiven for thinking of mushrooms as “icky” — the only time they’re likely to encounter them is the soggy version on fast-food pizza. It’s usually not until your teens that you begin appreciating the deep umami delights that mushrooms add to your favorite dishes.In your twenties (and please, not before then) you’re likely to make your acquaintance with psychedelic mushrooms at a  party, a camping trip, or a music festival. By definition, this vein of mycology is hard to generalize about. Our sources agree that it’s potentially quite fun, even liberating, when done in the company of trustworthy friends and good music.Your thirties offer the perfect moment to graduate to the next level of mushrooms, the medicinal kind. While previous experiences with fungi developed your palate and expanded your mind, these mushrooms promise to enhance your well-being. And they couldn’t come at a better time. At this stage of maturity, you’re just starting to feel the cold fingers of time tapping on your shoulder. You’re not rebounding from a night of partying like you used to (more on hangover cures here). You want more from your body than just remaining alive.Medicinal mushrooms have been used as long as there have been people (the mushrooms have been around longer, we just didn’t know they were good for us). Folk healers and herbalists throughout time and around the world have used them for a variety of ailments. While all these powerful fungi offer antioxidant properties that cleanse the liver, aid in digestion, provide mental clarity and promote longevity, each mushroom type has special targeted substances that can help with a variety of specific health goals. Better still, you no longer have to be an expert forager to enjoy the benefits of medicinal mushrooms. (And we do mean expert: wild mushrooms are not something you want to risk being wrong about.) Today, you can reap the benefits of medicinal mushrooms through products you use every day: coffee, tea, protein powder, and even face cream.Keep reading to learn the specific benefits of some popular medicinal mushrooms, as well as our favorite way to take them.Types of Medicinal MushroomsMaitakesbogdanich/FlickrIn Japan, they call it the “dancing mushroom,” since foragers who came upon this clustering fungus would get jiggy with glee. Known in English as “hen of the woods,” the maitake is making a name for itself as degenerative disease’s worst nightmare. Thanks to its powerful antioxidant punch, maitake is currently being researched as a treatment of diabetes, tumours and even cancer.Lion’s ManePaul Comstock/FlickrThis pale branched fungus has an ethereal beauty when you come upon it in the woods — it looks like something out of Lord of the Rings and its brain-boosting powers are about as close to magic as you can get. Consuming Lion’s mane encourages your body to produce two important bioproteins (nerve growth factor, or NFG, and myelin) that not only improve clarity, cognition, and memory but also inhibit degenerative diseases like Alzheimer’s and multiple sclerosis.CordycepsBjörn S./FlickrWhen you’re looking to enhance your performance, be it in the gym, the boardroom, or the bedroom, cordyceps is the mushroom you should reach for. The special bioactive compounds in cordyceps help improve circulation, allowing the body to utilize oxygen more efficiently. That means sustained energy, improved stamina (and libido), and quicker recovery from whatever you might have been doing, not to mention better sleep afterwards.ReishiWendell Smith/FlickrWith its cute knobby profile and a color pattern that looks like your grandma’s favorite set of soup bowls, reishi looks as friendly as it is. It is sought after for a mood-boosting compound called triterpene, which is said to alleviate anxiety, ease depression, and encourage better sleep. No wonder people call this cute little shroom “nature’s Xanax.”ChagaBjörn S./FlickrWhile it is indeed medicinal, chaga is not a true mushroom, but a sclerotic fungus — a variety that hardens upon contact with the air. It looks more like a burned stump than anything you’d want to eat, but trust us, you want to eat it. Used for centuries among the indigenous people of northern latitudes, chaga has exploded out of obscurity in recent years. It can be found in everything from tea to chocolate to cosmetic products, thanks to its ability to fight off oxidative stress (the kind that contributes to aging, haggard skin) as well as lower cholesterol and even prevent cancer.ShiitakeWendell Smith/FlickrYou know it for the creamy umami flavor it adds to your favorite Asian dishes, but did you know shiitake is also good for your ticker? The phytonutrients in this tasty mushroom help maintain healthy blood pressure and circulation by preventing the buildup of plaque within your arteries.Turkey TailBernard Spragg. NZThe aptly named turkey tail mushroom, with its fan-shaped body and variegated bands of brown, is the best friend your immune system ever had. It brings something called polysaccharide-K (PSK) to the party, a compound so effective that it’s actually prescribed for cancer patients in some countries and an approved anticancer prescription drug in Japan. Using turkey tail has proven to be effective in fighting off leukaemia and other cancers — imagine what it could do for your winter cold.Ways to Try Medicinal MushroomsUntil recently, the only way to take your mushroom medicine was to choke down a bitter, murky brew. But now there are a variety of ways to enjoy these healing fungi, and some of them are downright delicious. Here are a few of our favorites:Note: As with any dietary supplements, it’s important to exercise caution and common sense. Little has been established about the side effects and safety of regular or long-term use of medicinal mushrooms. Do your research, and if you’re currently taking medication, talk to a healthcare practitioner before trying them.Tamim Teas Mushroom TeaTamim TeasThe handcrafted blends from this small company out of Massachusetts pair a variety of medicinal mushrooms with dried herbs and superfoods that beautifully complement the fungus’ flavors and health benefits. We love their lion’s mane tea with its heavy dose of ginger and golden turmeric, as well as the dark, earthy spice of the chaga chai.Four Sigmatic Mushroom CoffeeFour SigmaticIf you shop at a health food store, a colorful package bearing the words “mushroom coffee” has probably made you pause. Four Sigmatic pairs shade-grown Arabica beans with chaga, cordyceps, or lion’s mane, depending on what benefits you’re after.Moon Juice Vanilla Mushroom Adaptogenic ProteinMoon JuiceThis tasty rice-based protein powder includes a high-vibe blend of reishi and cordyceps that will add a boost of energy and mental clarity to your morning smoothie.Moon Juice Beauty ShroomSephoraIf you’d rather leave your taste buds out of it, Moon Juice makes it easy to absorb medicinal mushrooms through your skin. Their Exfoliating Face Serum uses reishi to combat the signs of oxidative stress and fortify the skin’s natural barrier, while their Plumping Jelly Serum combines reishi with silver ear, another powerful mushroom, to reduce the appearance of fine lines and wrinkles.Ancient Apothecary Fermented Multi Mushroom ComplexNo reason to get fancy if you don’t want to. Ancient Apothecary offers a full spectrum of medicinal mushrooms in capsule form — just toss down one or two per day to fortify your body against cold and flu season while improving your productivity, focus, and stamina.

Tommy Coopers fez finally goes on display at VA 32 years after

Létonnante stratégie de plongée de la musaraigne

first_imgL’étonnante stratégie de plongée de la musaraigne Présentant récemment leurs travaux à la conférence annuelle de la Société de biologie expérimentale, des chercheurs canadiens ont mis en évidences les stratégies hors norme de la musaraigne pour supporter l’eau froide où elle va dénicher ses proies.De la taille du pouce et pesant à peine 17 grammes, Sorex palustris, une musaraigne d’Amérique du Nord, a besoin de son propre poids en nourriture chaque jour. Et c’est dans les cours d’eau qu’elle va s’approvisionner, là où abondent nymphes de libellules, escargots et écrevisses dont elle se régale. Mais problème : comment supporter l’eau froide lorsqu’on est si petit ? Voilà, une question qui turlupine depuis de nombreuses années les spécialistes. À lire aussiMaladie de Charcot : symptômes, causes, traitement, où en est on ?En effet, comme les phoques ou les manchots, la musaraigne ne peut faire baisser sa propre température corporelle pour ralentir son métabolisme et économiser ainsi son énergie. Elle est également incapable de stocker une grande quantité d’oxygène dans ses tissus pour de longues et fructueuses apnées. D’où l’interrogation des chercheurs. “Quand vous êtes petit, vous parvenez à cette température critiquement basse plus rapidement, donc vous êtes plus sensibles à l’hypothermie”, explique le Dr Kevin Campbell, de l’Université du Manitoba à Winnipeg (Canada) cité par la BBC.Mais ce scientifique et ses collègues viennent tout juste de percer le mystère. La musaraigne fait en réalité tout le contraire du processus précédemment décrit. Pour arriver à cette conclusion, l’équipe de ce scientifique a bardé quelques musaraignes de mini-capteurs thermiques avant de les observer plonger dans divers bassins d’eau allant de 3 à 30°C. Ils ont ainsi observé que l’animal stationne d’abord un instant au bord de l’eau et – peut-être en frissonnant, ce qui produit de la chaleur – réchauffe ensuite son corps de 1,5°C. Ceci ‘booste’ ses muscles ainsi que ses organes sensitifs – ceux de l’ouïe et du toucher – et lui permet alors des plongées particulièrement toniques et efficaces sur le plan de la prédation. Si ce ne sont que des plongées courtes, elle est capable de les répéter plusieurs fois : “[ce sont] les prédateurs les plus efficaces, les plus impitoyables que j’aie jamais vus”, résume ainsi le Dr Campbell.Le 8 juillet 2012 à 12:56 • Maxime Lambertlast_img read more

As Petrobras scandal spreads economic toll mounts for Brazil

first_img Tens of thousands of Brazilian workers have taken the latest hit in a multibillion dollar corruption scandal involving state oil company Petrobras, as a wave of job losses since November follows intensifying probes into price-fixing, bribery and political kickbacks.As the scale of events has deepened in recent months, key infrastructure projects have been suspended or scrapped, some suppliers have sought bankruptcy protection and job losses are mounting. Nationally, Brazil shed payrolls for a third straight month in February, bringing job losses over the past year to 47,228.Petrobras size as the biggest company in Brazil, amplifies the furore. Each year it invests double the governments entire discretionary infrastructure budget, giving it enormous power to shape Latin Americas largest economy.All told, economists expect the chain reaction set off by the scandal will tip an already weak economy into its worst recession in a quarter century, a harsh reversal for a country that was booming just a few years ago.LimboTwo refineries worth a combined $30bn (£20.15bn) have been cancelled. Comperj, a $1.3bn fertiliser plant and dozens of production and drilling ships, each costing hundreds of millions of dollars, are in limbo.The city government of Itaborai, a former boom town, says there were 17,000 workers at Comperj in December and fewer than 3,000 now. In Itaboraí, new office parks, hotels, stores and high-rise apartments stand empty.Having to leave is very complicated as I dont see it as the companys doing. For me this comes from what went on in Brasília, where a lot (of money) was stolen. They wound up with no money so they started taking ours, and then what happened, there was nowhere left for them to take money from so now they are taking it from the workers. Thats it, the company has had it, former Comperj employee Elias Brasil da Silva said as he picked up his documents.The damage spread quickly after the scandal prompted Petrobras to put 23 suppliers, including some of Brazils largest construction firms, on a payment blacklist.Five of the companies – OAS Engenharia, Galvao Engenharia, Iesa, Schahin Engenharia and Alusa Engenharia – have filed for bankruptcy protection since November, slowing projects like Comperj and halting the building of new production ships. More bankruptcy petitions are possible.Municipal Secretary of Work and Income for Macae, Alexandre Fernandes said that Petrobras was already cutting back because new output had lagged spending for a decade.Then oil prices fell to six-year lows, adding to the woes. Schlumberger NV, the worlds largest oil-services company, has laid off hundreds in Brazil, many in Macae.These two phenomena, which happened within a short space of time and which were both very serious, were a great shock, a real surprise. So the government, the city, the companies are all adapting to the new scenario, Fernandes said at his office, where workers were lining up in search of employment.Ivanilda Costa de Souza is one of those who is now suddenly looking for employment, but she says that the odd jobs available to her do not suffice to pay the bills.They reduced the volume of their workers, and we werent expecting to lose our jobs, which means that many of us had bought things which are now very difficult to pay off, and to pay taxes too. I was paying everything exactly right and now I am in big problems again. Even if we take odd jobs, it is not something you can count on. On top of that, we have lost the Sodex credit cards, the money that we counted on every month in order to be able to pay our bills. Its over, de Souza said.Even if work returns, there will be less of it. Petrobras plans to cut 2015 investment by as much as third. According to President of the Association of Commerce and Industry in Macae, Antonio Gondim, the impact of the crises has trickled from the top down.There was a chain reaction. If the large companies on top are not employing, those which are below them and which offer services to Petrobras end up not making any profits and stop buying from the companies below them, which then affects the micro-businesses and the individual, said Gondim.Rio OlympicsThe impact is also being felt beyond the oil industry. The 23 implicated firms are among Brazils most ubiquitous, building everything from ports and highways to stadia and other facilities for the 2016 Rio Olympics.Cooperating witnesses say politicians and political parties received kickbacks on inflated contracts from other state-run companies, such as utility Eletrobras. That has raised concerns the probe will delay completion of Amazon hydro dams and transmission lines, needed to stave off electricity shortages.Brazils government is so concerned that it is rushing to sign leniency accords with the banned companies. If they admit guilt, return stolen funds and pay fines, the ban on receiving money from Petrobras and the federal government will end, no matter the outcome of criminal and civil suits.

Monetary policy risks becoming futile in lowgrowth world says ECBs Coeure

first_imgMonetary policy risks are becoming ineffective in a world where growth is sluggish, economies are deeply interconnected and interest rates are already near zero, said a top European Central Bank (ECB) policy-maker on Saturday, 21 November.Speaking at the University of California Berkeley, ECB executive board member Benoit Coeure called for academics and policy-makers to address issues at the root of a global economic malaise, singling out the euro zone’s inability to revive domestic demand.”The capacity of the global economy to generate growth is under question,” said Coeure. “In a global zero-lower-bound environment, surplus countries hold world output down.”If we ignore those issues, there is a risk that monetary policies may become ineffective, overburdened, and/or collectively trapped in a suboptimal equilibrium,” he said.last_img read more

Oil prices dip after strong rally but sentiment remains confident

first_imgOil prices dipped on Thursday on profit taking after markets rallied the previous day due to a draw in U.S. stocks and an expectation of an OPEC-led cut in production.U.S. West Texas Intermediate (WTI) crude oil futures were trading at $51.38 per barrel at 0238 GMT, down 22 cents from their last close.International Brent crude futures were trading at $52.56 per barrel, down 11 cents.Traders said that the price dips were a result of profit taking following a rally the previous day, which saw WTI settle at a 15-month high, fuelled by a reduction in U.S. crude stocks by 5.2 million barrels in the week ended Oct. 14 to 468.7 million barrels.”Oil prices continued to rise overnight on optimism over OPEC supply restraint and weaker-than-expected inventories,” ANZ bank said on Thursday.The overall mood in oil markets remained confident, with most analysts expecting further increases.Reuters technical commodity analyst Wang Tao said U.S. oil is expected to break a resistance zone of $51.67 to $52.11 per barrel, and then rise towards $52.78. Meanwhile, Brent oil may stabilize around a support at $52.49 per barrel and then retest a resistance at $53.45.BMI Research even said that “we see significant potential for an upwards break in Brent towards $60 per barrel driven by bullish technical drivers and supportive conditions in the broader financial markets,” although it added that current fundamentals did not warrant much higher prices.The Organisation of the Petroleum Exporting Countries (OPEC) plans to meet on November 30 and hopes to decide on a half a million to 1 million barrels per day oil production cut, and the producer cartel hopes that non-OPEC exporters, especially Russia, will cooperate.Saudi Arabia’s Energy Minister Khalid al-Falih said on Wednesday that the cut will help reduce a huge overhang of supplies and stimulate new investments in the sector.However, Exxon chief executive Rex Tillerson said that cost cutting in the U.S. shale oil sector had made some wells profitable at as low as $40 a barrel. This means that North America has effectively become a swing producer that will be able to respond rapidly to a cut or unforeseen supply shortage.last_img read more

Photographer Captures All Types of Eerie Fake Urban Settlements

first_imgThe term “Potemkin Village” was coined after a local Russian legend in which an 18th-century military governor of Crimea, Grigory Potemkin, devised a plan to impress Catherine the Great, who announced an official visit to his province. Potemkin, who was also known to be the Empress’ lover, created a number of fake villages to cover the empty landscapes, to convince Catherine that he was managing a prosperous region, filled with colorful settlements and a booming economy.The Potemkin Village.

The Housing Market in Q2

first_img FHFA Growth Home Prices homes HOUSING Values 2018-08-26 Radhika Ojha August 26, 2018 746 Views Home prices grew but at a slower pace in the second quarter of 2018 according to the Federal Housing Finance Agency (FHFA). Giving an indication of housing market trends during the period, the FHFA’s House Price Index for Q2 indicated that while house prices rose 6.5 percent from the second quarter of 2017 to the second quarter of 2018, its monthly index for June was up only 0.2 percent from May.The FHFA calculates its HPI using home sales price information from mortgages sold to, or guaranteed by, Fannie Mae and Freddie Mac.The data indicated that while home prices rose in all 50 states and the District of Columbia during the period, Nevada, with a 17 percent growth, Idaho (13 percent), District of Columbia 911.8 percent), Utah (11.3 percent), and Washington (11 percent) all showed double-digit growth in home prices.The states showing the smallest annual appreciation were, North Dakota (2.1 percent), Louisiana (2.3 percent), West Virginia (2.3 percent), Connecticut (2.4 percent), and Alaska (2.6 percent).“Home prices rose in the second quarter but at a slower pace than we have seen for the past four years,” said Dr. William Doerner, Supervisory Economist at the FHFA. “Mortgage rates have increased by more than half a percentage point over the first six months of the year. Rates are still inexpensive from a historical standpoint, but their bump-up appears to have gently pressed the brakes on house price increases.”Watch this video to learn more about the movement and trends indicated by the FHFA HPI in the second quarter:<span data-mce-type=”bookmark” style=”display: inline-block; width: 0px; overflow: hidden; line-height: 0;” class=”mce_SELRES_start”></span> Sharecenter_img The Housing Market in Q2 in Daily Dose, Data, Featured, Newslast_img read more

Lying Eide under concerted fire

first_imgUN Special Advisor Espen Barth Eide will be back on Monday for meetings with President Nicos Anastasiades and Turkish Cypriot leader Mustafa Akinci to establish whether they remained committed to a solution based on a bizonal, bicommunal federation (BBF).An interview given by Eide to the Cyprus News Agency, was not well received by the Greek Cypriot side as he repeated his view that the talks collapsed because of a “collective failure.” The Cyprus government’s position was that the Turkish side was 100 per cent to blame for the collapse.He also hit back at criticism, made in the wake of Crans-Montana, that he had been unprepared. The UN, he said were very well prepared, and if anyone was unprepared, maybe it was the people who were in charge and  not those that were helping them.He said things at the July 6 working dinner – that led to the collapse of the talks – were moving towards a situation of no guarantees. Eide also rejected claims made by the Greek Cypriot side that the UN Secretary-General Antonio Guterres had misunderstood the content of a private conversation with Turkish Foreign Minister Mevlut Cavusoglu in Crans-Montana about Ankara’s willingness to ditch the guarantees system from the first day of a settlement.According to Anastasiades, when Cavusoglu was asked at the final dinner if he had made such an offer and if so to put it in writing, he refused and denied he had made it. Eide said that the SG had not misunderstood anything. The ensuing blame game, he said, was very unhealthy and “turns complicated issues into banalities”.In another interview, published on Sunday in Politis, Eide said it was now up to the two sides to decide whether they wanted to proceed based on the February 11, 2014 Joint Declaration that stipulated a solution based on BBF, or would like a different approach.He was not sure now that both sides remained committed to a BBF, but would find out next week. Following the end of the talks, Turkey said that it was clear finding a solution within the UN framework was not possible and other options would be explored.Eide told Politis that if Cypriots decided to overcome their small differences, they would have huge support from the international community.The government, obviously annoyed by the Norwegian’s account of events, urged Eide, through spokesman, Nicos Christodoulides, to reflect on his role in the negotiation process that led to an inconclusive outcome at the Conference on Cyprus.According to state broadcaster CyBC, Athens, on Friday, asked the UN to put Eide in his place for the ‘false statements’ he had been making about who bore responsibility for the deadlock of the talks in Crans-Montana. The memo sent to the UN, reportedly cited Eide’s “biased support for Turkey”.Meanwhile, the Greek Foreign Ministry, on Sunday urged Eide to make clear whether Cavusoglu finally agreed during the July 6 dinner to the abolition of the intervention rights and of the Treaty of Guarantees from the first day of the solution, as per his statements in a recent interview. “Because we have the conviction that the Turkish foreign minister stated the opposite both during the Conference and publicly. Unless Mr. Eide was in a different Conference or he wanted to understand things differently,” the ministry said in a statement.Greek Foreign Minister Nikos Kotzias accused Eide of lying. In an interview published yesterday in Phileleftheros, Kotzias said that the fault of the Greek side was that it allowed Eide to lead it to that phase of the talks, for which the UN official was not prepared.  He said the Greek side “have allowed him to lie for too long,” and added:“I pointed out to him (his lies) during the Conference. He knew he was lying but he didn’t mind that he was being caught in the act. Luckily, he was forced to give up when he tried to present his own positions as our own in a document. I’m afraid he is continuing these tactics post- Switzerland.” Kotzias said.Kotzias felt the breaking point between the UNSG and Turkey during the talks came when Cavusoglu admitted that Turkey wanted to maintain its unilateral intervention rights on the island and be able to intervene whenever it saw fit. Turkey wanted to legalise its occupation and, if possible, extend it to the whole of the island, he told the paper.The biggest problem over time, said Kotzias, was that “we have not been able to persuade Turkish Cypriots to become independent of Turkey,” because “we did not point out the fact that Turkish Cypriots now feel strangers in their homeland and live in a militarised regime.”The political parties all commented on Eide’s interview, but did not arrive at the same conclusions.Akel blamed Anastasiades for the fact that, despite Turkey being responsible for the collapse of the talks, nobody in the international community shared this view. Anastasiades, Akel said, allowed Turkey, “through his misguided manipulations, indecisiveness and pre-election expediencies” to play tactical games and win the publicity game in relation to the conference.It also noted that Eide, in his interviews, gave a different version of what had happened during the final day of the talks from Anastasiades but avoided making an issue of it. “We will not stand on who’s right…. What’s important is the next day,” the party announcement said. The president now had to decide the next moves of the Greek Cypriot side for the creation of conditions for the resumption of the talks.Edek and the Greens urged the government to seek Eide’s replacement. The Greens called for “a new reliable UN Special Adviser”, as Eide, “has almost officially turned into a defender of the Turkish positions”.The party said: “Hiding behind the excuse of ‘confidentiality of the procedure’ avoids mentioning everything that took place during that critical dinner.”Edek also accused Eide of bias and said he had great responsibility for the failure of the talks, as he was unprepared and did not handle things well.“It was observed in Geneva and it was confirmed in Crans-Montana that Mr. Eide’s role was biased in favour of Turkish positions,” Edek said. The party did not believe Eide was a trustworthy UN representative. It also blamed Anastasiades for Eide’s behaviour, as he was “tolerating his biased stance and repeated lies”.Diko also said that Eide “acts as an advocate and supporter of Turkish positions” and that he was a liar. “In spite of being proven wrong by the facts, the Greek Foreign Minister and others that were present at the July 6 dinner, he insists on lying with audacity,” the Diko statement said. You May LikeFigLeaf Beta AppHow to Become Fully Anonymous Online in Less Than 3 Minutes?
