Philadelphia cops riot against protesters at police chiefs convention

first_imgPhiladelphia cops attack, Oct. 21.Protesters calling for the abolition of police rallied outside the International Chiefs of Police Convention in Philadelphia on Oct. 21 and then marched through Center City streets. At the end of the demonstration, as protesters were approaching the hated statue of former Philadelphia police chief Frank Rizzo, cops rioted. Six marchers were arrested, some injured.March participants instituted jail support at the 9th Precinct, Hahnemann Hospital and finally the 15th Precinct until 3 a.m. in support of those brutalized by the state’s thugs. Instead of the cops being charged with riot and assault with deadly weapons, six activists will have to go to court to defend themselves against false and outrageous charges ranging from disorderly conduct misdemeanors to assault on a cop, a felony.Philly for Racial, Economic and Legal Justice organized the protest. During the rally and march, the group’s members spoke on a sound system and handed out fliers explaining why police abolition is needed. Their leaflet begins with:“Police abolition is a political position and community-based restorative process to self-governance in response to centuries old, sustained police terror and oppression of black, brown and poor communities.“The process asks that:“The resources that the police state monopolize be transitioned back into heavily policed communities through housing, education, and healthcare policies.“Jail time and harassment be replaced with counseling and restorative programs.“We have and utilize the right to armed defense.”Hundreds of bystanders took videos of the protest and many gave thumbs up gestures as demonstrators wound through busy streets. The cop violence at the end of the march only reinforced the growing awareness for many community activists that reforms are useless: This whole rotten system of policing must be abolished!WW photos: Joseph PietteFacebookTwitterWhatsAppEmailPrintMoreShare thisFacebookTwitterWhatsAppEmailPrintMoreShare thislast_img read more

Reverse Mortgage Volume Hits Its Highest Point Since 2011

first_imgHome / Daily Dose / Reverse Mortgage Volume Hits Its Highest Point Since 2011 The Best Markets For Residential Property Investors 2 days ago Previous: $1.5 Trillion Worth of U.S. Homes Threatened by Wildfires Next: Top 5 Cities to Rent and to Own a Home About Author: David Wharton Reverse mortgage numbers spiked in January 2018, clocking in a 32.5 percent month-over-month growth in endorsements over December 2017, according to the latest data from Reverse Market Insight, Inc. (RMI) That would be noteworthy in and of itself, but that January increase also marked the best month for the reverse mortgage industry since March 2011, with Federal Housing Administration-approved (FHA) reverse mortgage lenders logging 6,313 endorsements in January. Reverse Market Insight also notes that January saw 48 new lenders enter the reverse mortgage lending field.For comparison’s sake, RMI reported 4,765 reverse mortgage endorsements in December 2017; 4,837 in June 2017; and 4,426 in February 2017.Reverse Mortgage Daily points out that some of this bump can likely be attributed to changes made by the Department of Housing and Urban Development (HUD) in October 2017, which “instituted lower principal limits and a new mortgage insurance premium structure.” RMI suggests the surge of applicants trying to beat that deadline has given the reverse mortgage numbers a bump that will diminish in the months to come.RMI’s analysis predicts that a reverse mortgage dropoff is likely on the horizon. The RMI analysis states, “We’ll see next month if that’s the peak endorsement month for this latest product change, but we already know subsequent volume will be greatly reduced given the much lower application and case numbers issued figures after September.”How much of a decline could be coming? RMI President John Lunde told Reverse Mortgage Daily in January that he believed endorsement volume for reverse mortgages could plummet by 25 percent to 30 percent.According to RMI, FHA-approved lenders logged 56,912 endorsements during calendar year 2017, up significantly over 48,794 in 2016. The top reverse mortgage lenders, according to RMI, include American Advisors Group (13,033 endorsements between February 2017 and January 2018), Finance of America Reverse LLC (5,676 endorsements), Reverse Mortgage Funding LLC (4,783 endorsements), Liberty Home Equity Solutions Inc. (3,853 endorsements), and Synergy One Lending Inc. (3,471 endorsements).

Harriet Tubman museum slated to open in New Jersey in June 2020

first_imgCourtesy Zack Mullock(CAPE MAY, N.J.) — Harriet Tubman will be honored with a new museum dedicated to preserving her life and history next year in New Jersey.The Harriet Tubman Museum will be located next to the historic Macedonia Baptist Church, which is in Cape May, a New Jersey town where the abolitionist worked for some time. Tubman earned money by working in hotels and for families as a cook in Cape May, according to a historical account.The local community has raised nearly $160,000 of the $500,000 needed for the exhibit to open.Zack Mullock, a Cape May city councilman who is managing the museum’s construction, told ABC News that most fundraising efforts have gone toward materials for the building. His family has contributed both their time and finances to the project and hope to preserve “a major part of history that has disappeared.”He also said that although he has visited similar museums in Maryland, what separates this museum from the others are the artifacts.On display will be unique Underground Railroad items and African American art, including a collection of several modern pieces from the late Rev. Robert Davis, the longtime pastor of Macedonia Baptist who died in 2015.Mullock said that his family is also in contact with the team behind the movie Harriet, a feature film about the abolitionist released earlier this month, for a showing of the movie at the museum’s grand opening on June 19, 2020. That day was chosen because it is believed to be Tubman’s 200th birthday and June 19th is also “Juneteenth” — a holiday commemorating the end of slavery.Eugene Dempsey, an 82-year-old retired maintenance technician, said he’s most excited about the museum as “a place for the kids to extend their learning” about Tubman.“There’s so much black history … it’s unbelievable,” said Dempsey, an Air Force veteran who’s lived in Cape May for over six decades with his wife, Emily. “There’s just the history of the background of Harriet Tubman. What she did was amazing … what she did as a woman … it’s just a wonderful thing.”Another notable African American historical building in Cape May is The Franklin Street School, which is located blocks from the future museum’s site, and previously served as a school to educate black children during segregation, according to The Press of Atlantic City. Built in 1927, Dempsey said his wife, her sisters and their mother attended the school.Tubman, a noted abolitionist and celebrated Civil War spy, was born into slavery on a Maryland plantation in 1822 as Araminta Ross and changed her name after marrying her first husband. She escaped slavery in 1849, and, as a key figure in the Underground Railroad — a diverse network of escaped slaves, free blacks and abolitionists who provided safe housing and secret transportation routes to the North — returned to the South more than a dozen times to help free others.During the Civil War she was a nurse and a spy for the Union Army. After the war, she petitioned the government to have her widow’s pension increased given her additional wartime service.Copyright © 2019, ABC Audio. All rights reserved.last_img read more

Charity staff crisis begins to hit home

first_img Comments are closed. Previous Article Next Article Charity staff crisis begins to hit homeOn 12 Nov 2002 in Personnel Today Related posts:No related photos. Crippling skills shortages and increased competition from the public sectoris bleeding charities dry when it comes to attracting and retaining staff. RossWigham discovers it is not solely an issue of payCharities’ efforts to tackle staffing difficulties are being undermined bythe tight labour market and an inability to hold on to key staff. Crippling skills shortages, low pay and heightened competition from thepublic sector are presenting serious challenges for the sector. These problems are highlighted in a new report by the National Council forVoluntary Organisations which shows that staff turnover is rising and HRstruggling to recruit new faces. Karl Wilding, head of research at the NCVO, blames the problems on a tightlabour market and chronic skills shortages. “Staff turnover has increasedfrom last year and half of all the respondents are having recruitment problemsbecause there’s a lack of specialist skills in the UK,” he said. The Voluntary Sector Salary Survey shows that staff turnover has increasedfrom 8.5 to 10.7 per cent despite wage increases being above the rate ofinflation. In fact, average salaries and earnings rises are outstripping theprivate sector, rising at a rate of 4.7 and 4.4 per cent respectively. Despite this, organisations are still struggling to recruit new staff with50 per cent experiencing difficulties in finding suitable candidates. Althoughthis is a smaller proportion than in 2001, it still paints a disturbingpicture. Wilding said charities must now invest in skills as they face toughercompetition for staff from the rejuvenated public sector. “Organisationsare increasingly realising they are competing against the private and publicsectors as well as other voluntary organisations.” Claire Smith, HR director of Leonard Cheshire, the charity which providescare for the elderly, said a whole range of factors were contributing to staffturnover and recruitment problems in the care sector. She blames the high costof living, an abundance of available jobs and staff being more empowered tomove elsewhere. Smith said while most sectors were having trouble recruiting new staff, dueto the low unemployment rate, charities were suffering particularly badly.”I don’t believe the increase in turnover is directly related to pay, butthis shows the voluntary sector is falling behind. It is especially difficultto recruit care workers who are attracted by other industries such as retail.”The sector really struggles at senior management level and it’s currentlythe worst I’ve ever known it,” she added. Smith said she believes the sector will have to start competing on pay toattract suitable candidates. “Voluntary organisations need to look at howthey can start to attract the right sort of staff and there’s also a questionover funding. Charities need to start thinking if they can afford not toimprove salaries,” she said. Julie Foley, a manager at the UK’s largest hospice St Ann’s, introduced arange of initiatives to improve the retention and recruitment of volunteers,but admits that finding paid staff was still a major headache. St Ann’s employsaround 320 paid staff but is struggling to get more people – especiallyqualified nurses – into the charity. “It’s hard to recruit but I think that’s a national trend. It’s beenespecially difficult for us to get nurses but that’s not because of salary, aswe have the same levels as the NHS,” she said. She added charities would have to start increasing management salaries orface more organisational difficulties. “We’ve increased our fundraising efforts because we need to sell theorganisation and raise the money to attract the best people. Charities need tostart competing with private and public salaries to keep them afloat.” St John Ambulance has recently implemented a range of initiatives to helpmodernisation and combat the staffing issues within the sector, following areview of staff issues. Head of personnel Sue Barrington said she had anticipated a rise in staffturnover and introduced flexible working and new conditions to try and minimisedisruption. “We expected a large turnover so put a strategic vision inplace to make it a more attractive place to work. We have to continue tomodernise to keep one step ahead,” she said. Barrington believes the main issue for charities lies not in raising managers’salaries, but in investing in training for all staff to ensure theorganisation’s aims are delivered. Andrew Thompson, head of International HR at Oxfam said charities must startincreasing career development. “Pay isn’t the be-all and end-all but ifthere isn’t consistent career development salary can become the final straw.Staff in the charity sector are generally quite young and are looking for anemployer to invest in them,” he said. However, the advantage charities have over other sectors is the goodwill ofstaff and the potential to ‘change the world’. Many highly intelligent peoplego into the sector not for money or prestige but for the satisfaction ofhelping others. Oxfam often aims to attract top managers looking for a sabbatical by sellingoverseas roles as a life changing experience that will prepare them for futurecareers. “There’s a tradition of staff taking jobs because they areworthwhile and people are still looking for meaningful work. Charities need tomake more of this and sell the job as an experience,” he said. www.ncvo-vol.org.uklast_img read more

Challenger portal signs up agents behind Say No To Rightmove campaign

first_imgChallenger portal OneDome says it has signed up 2,000 branches to its service including two of the leading agencies behind the ‘Say No To Rightmove’ campaigns.These are London agency Dreamview Estates and the At Home Estate & Letting Agency in Sussex both of which are involved in two of the campaigns attempting to rein-in the power of Rightmove.Dreamview Estates is run by Murray Lee and heads up the Estate Agency Group, and At Home is run by Paul Davies and leads the Boycott Rightmove Facebook site.Like many of the agencies and industry figures leading the charge to soften Rightmove’s influence, these two have been calling on agents to help support the raft of new ‘challenger’ portals’ that have emerged before and during the Covid Crisis.OneDome has also attracted some large multi-branch agencies including Andrews Property Group, Arun Estates, Martyn Gerrard, Robinson Michael & Jackson, and Winkworth.Best agents“We are delighted to be working with some of the best agents in the country and continuing to drive portal costs down while generating a significant volume of leads,” says Babek Ismayil. “We are humbled by the positive response we have seen from the industry.”His business has plenty of competition in the challenger portal field with a further five up and running and another three waiting in the wings to launch, The Negotiator has been told.OneDome claims to be the only platform to offer estate agents a 100-year free-to-list contract and an optional profit share agreement, generating revenue for itself by working with agents to facilitate home moves.Read more about Say No To Rightmove.At Home Estates & Lettings Say No To Rightmove Murray Lee Dreamview Estates OneDome Martyn Gerrard Paul Davies Andrews Property Group Arun Estates Robinson Michael & Jackson winkworth July 30, 2020Nigel LewisWhat’s your opinion?
