This rate rose above 4.5 percent for the first time since February.Black Knight notes though that with July ending on a Sunday, and in such cases, any payments made on the last two days of the month can’t be processed until the following month, which typically leads to a spike in the delinquency rate.The report says that with this being the case, it’s very likely that there will be an August decline seen as it’s also typical to see a partial, though not usually full, recovery the following month.Additionally, the July foreclosure starts were reported to be 61,300 which is a 12 percent decline from last month and was the second lowest monthly total in 10 years.Likewise, the report shows that the inventory of loans in active foreclosure continued its long-term downward trend. It fell 20 percent year to date to 550,000 active foreclosures. This number hit its lowest point since July 2007.Black Knight also reports that non-current rates continue to climb from six months ago in North Dakota, Alaska and Wyoming. This due to the impact on mortgage performance from sustained pressure on the oil and gas sector.Finally, it was reported that prepayment activity fell in July despite overall growth in the number of refinance candidates and 30-year interest rates remaining at or below 3.45 percent for much of the month.Black Knight will provide a more in-depth review of this data in its monthly Mortgage Monitor report, which includes an analysis of data supplemented by detailed charts and graphs that reflect trend and point-in-time observations. The Mortgage Monitor report will be available online by September 6, 2016.

Dawson to serve ban

first_img “It’s one of the areas that would lend itself to technology. “The game has stopped and there’s time before we restart the game to have a look at something. That would provide the concrete evidence that would get the decision right. “We’ve been open-minded to things like the goal decision system which has made a great difference and a great benefit to referees in the Premier League. “We need to see what other technology can be used to get refereeing decisions more accurate. He added: “We need to test it in live football. Until we do that, we won’t know the impact on the game. “Technology can be helpful but we don’t want to destroy the fabric of the game, the fast-flowing spectacle we all love.” The Football Association has confirmed the defender will be banned instead of McAuley. Referee Neil Swarbrick sent McAuley off by mistake after Dawson had fouled Wilfried Bony in the Baggies’ 3-0 defeat to Manchester City on Saturday. Craig Dawson will serve a one-match ban after Gareth McAuley’s mistaken red card was transferred to his West Brom team-mate. Swarbrick apologised, via a statement from the Professional Game Match Officials Ltd, and the case of mistaken identity has been accepted by an Independent Regulatory Commission. An FA statement confirmed: “Following an Independent Regulatory Commission hearing today [Monday 23 March 2015], a claim of mistaken identity in relation to West Bromwich Albion’s Gareth McAuley was successful. “The player was dismissed during the game against Manchester City on Saturday [21 March 2015] for denying an obvious goal scoring opportunity. “The standard punishment of a one-match suspension has been transferred to Craig Dawson and will be served with immediate effect.” Dawson will miss Albion’s clash with QPR at The Hawthorns on April 4. The incident marked the second time in a matter of weeks that the wrong player has been sent off in a Premier League game, after Roger East dismissed Sunderland’s Wes Brown against Manchester United for an offence committed by fellow United old boy John O’Shea. PGMOL general manager Mike Riley has called for the introduction of video replays to assist officials in such cases. Riley told BBC Radio 5 Live: “The referee has got to make his decision based on what he thinks he’s seen. His instincts often lead him to trust his judgement. Press Associationlast_img read more

Jury Selection Begins in Clearwater Stand-your-Ground Case

first_imgJury selection gets underway in Clearwater, Florida today in the trial of a white man accused of gunning down an unarmed black man. The issue for the jury isn’t whether the deadly shooting happened, but instead, was it legal?The incident began as an argument in a convenience store parking lot. 28-year old Markeis McGlockton walks out from inside the store and pushes Michael Drejka to the ground. Drejka then can be seen shooting McGlockton once in the chest. At first, Sheriff Bob Gaultieri refused to prosecute Drejka saying he had to shoot to defend himself.That decision sparked outrage and protests and the State Attorney overruled the sheriff and charged Drejka with manslaughter.Once the jury is seated, the panel will consider the legality of the shooting by watching the surveillance video that appears to show McGlockton backing away from Drejka in the seconds before he was killed.last_img read more
