Share Save May 2019 marked the 14th consecutive month of slowing home-price growth, according to a new report from CoreLogic, as U.S. home prices grew by 3.4% that month. Additionally, home prices in Seattle dropped 1.2% over the past 12 months, being the first of the 20 cities in the S&P CoreLogic Case-Shiller Index to lose value since 2012. In this Video Spotlight, CoreLogic Deputy Chief Economist Ralph McLaughlin discusses why housing market observers should ease their concern.“Despite the cooldown entering its 14th month, observers of the housing market should ease their broader concerns of an imminent housing market correction,” said McLaughlin. “We see the cooldown flattening or even reversing course in the coming months, and expect the housing market to continue coming into balance. In the meantime, buyers are likely claiming some ground from what has been seller’s territory over the past few years. If mortgage rates stay low, wages continue to grow, and inventory picks up, we can expect the U.S. housing market to further stabilize throughout the remainder of the year.”CoreLogic notes that home price growth in the top 10 metropolitan areas increased by 2.2%, down from the previous month’s 2.3% increase. In addition, 13 of the top 20 metropolitan areas reported lower price increases compared to the previous month, compared to in April, when half of the top 20 saw an increase from the previous month.

The Leading Edge 18 September 2014In the months since they launched their abortion policy, the NZ Green Party have been adamant in their public assertions that their new policy will not legalise abortion-up-to-birth for persons with disabilities – but new developments now cast serious doubts on the validity of those claims.The original wording of the policy when it was launched was (emphasis added):“…the Green Party will… allow terminations after 20 weeks gestation only when the woman would otherwise face serious permanent injury to her health, or in the case of severe fetal abnormalities (as is current practice).”Anyone with even just a basic awareness of these issues was immediately able to see the major problem with this part of the policy – the term ‘severe fetal abnormalities’ is a highly subjective term that is often used to describe various disabilities, meaning that the policy would result in abortion-up-to-birh for persons with disabilities as long as they were described as ‘fetal abnormalities’.One of the Green Party architects of their abortion bill immediately tried to reassure the public that what they really meant was “unsurvivable conditions” which are “incompatible with life.”But despite this reassurance that there was nothing wrong, the wording of the policy was speedily changed (a clear indication that, regardless of their public claims, the Greens knew full well that their policy would result in abortion-up-to-birth on the grounds of disability).That statement in the policy was subsequently changed to:“… the Green Party will… Allow terminations after 20 weeks only according to current practice.”(What is immediately obvious about this statement is the complete lack of the terms ‘severe lethal anomalies’, or ‘unsurvivable conditions incompatible with life’ – despite the fact that the Greens publicly claimed that this was what the intention of that section of the policy was supposed to be.)As mentioned yesterday, the new wording still doesn’t actually resolve this issue.But things have just got even murkier, because yesterday I was alerted to an official statement from Green MP Jan Logie, that was published on the Green Party website on Saturday 9 August, in which she states the following (emphasis added):“The Green Party’s policy would allow terminations after 20 weeks gestation only when the woman would otherwise face serious permanent injury to her health or in the case of severe fetal abnormalities“This statement was issued exactly two months after the Green Party abortion policy was announced, and more than a month after it was supposedly changed, yet it contains the exact same wording (about fetal abnormalities) from the original version of the policy that other Green spokespeople have been claiming is no longer Green Party policy.This indicates that the Greens haven’t actually changed their stance at all, and are still actively trying to usher in a policy that will legalise abortion-up-to-birth for persons with disabilities.http://theleadingedgeblog.com/new-developments-indicate-definite-green-support-for-abortion-up-to-birth-for-disabilities/
ArsenalL are exploring the option of recalling central defender William Saliba back from his loan spell at Saint-Etienne.

Share on: WhatsApp Eden Hazard has endured a nightmare first season at Real Madrid but could make amends in the final 11 games.Madrid, Spain | AFP | When La Liga stopped they were not expected to play any part in the rest of the title race but when the season resumes on Thursday, Eden Hazard and Luis Suarez could be set to decide it.Hazard was looking beyond Real Madrid to the Euros after undergoing surgery on his right foot in March while some felt Suarez had played his last game for Barcelona after having a knee operation in January.Instead, both have been thrown a lifeline, Suarez to preserve his career at Barca and Hazard to kickstart his with Madrid.After Real Madrid paid 100 million euros ($108.4 million) to sign him from Chelsea last year, fans sprinted outside the Santiago Bernabeu to beat the queues for Hazard’s unveiling, and around 50,000 made it inside.However questions were soon being asked about his weight in pre-season, and he has struggled with injury all season.Every time he has come back, Hazard has needed time to find form, initially lacking that burst of speed and change of direction that at his best, can leave a defender for dead.But reports from Valdebebas have been positive, with Thibaut Courtois saying on Sunday he had been surprised by the Belgian’s “rhythm” before adding a note of caution. “We can’t expect him to be on top form without playing,” he said.Barca coach Quique Setien has been similarly circumspect over Suarez, who is also not renowned for quick returns to sharpness after time away.– Fitness questions –“He is better than we expected,” Setien said on Sunday. “But the question is how ready he is after so long out and whether he is ready to start.”Despite winning the Clasico on March 1, Madrid were in a slump before the hiatus, that 2-0 victory over Barcelona their only win in five games.They lost the defensive steel that saw them go 21 matches unbeaten either side of Christmas and a familiar bluntless, still lingering from Cristiano Ronaldo’s departure, remains.Hazard was supposed to help fill the creative void but 11 games over five and a half weeks offers no room for rustiness and, unlike Suarez, this is still a new team to him. Fifteen appearances in 10 months hardly breeds familiarity.Barca meanwhile need bodies as they have only 19 fit senior players, which leaves them surprisingly ill-equipped to capitalise on two extra substitutes.The club sold back-ups in January to raise funds for a striker that never arrived and instead they were left to exploit La Liga’s emergency signing rule in February to poach Martin Braithwaite from Leganes.But Suarez brings experience and quality, not to mention the best out of Lionel Messi.In full flow, Messi could see off Real Madrid but the Argentinian has had his own injury problems this season, the latest a minor thigh complaint that led to him missing three training sessions last week. Barcelona have a two-point advantage and the marginally more favourable fixtures, particularly as the usually heated atmospheres at Sevilla and Alaves will be negated by empty stands.They play Atletico Madrid at home too but have not lost to them at Camp Nou in 14 years.Yet bubbling distrust of the Barca board could resurface at any moment and Madrid have the better head-to-head record, meaning they only need to be level on points to be crowned champions.They play away at high-flying Real Sociedad and Athletic Bilbao but more important could be how they take to their new training ground home, the Alfredo di Stefano Stadium, while renovation work continues at the Bernabeu.Madrid have Marco Asensio fit again while Gareth Bale has been the fittest of anyone in training. Zinedine Zidane’s knack for winning knock-out tournaments might even be well-suited to a 39-day sprint finish.Zidane was close to the sack in September but almost a year later, only one thing is certain. Nothing is the same.Fixtures (all times GMT)ThursdaySevilla v Real Betis (2000)FridayGranada v Getafe (1700), Valencia v Levante (2000)SaturdayEspanyol v Alaves (1200), Celta Vigo v Villarreal (1500), Leganes v Real Valladolid (1730), Mallorca v Barcelona (2000)SundayAthletic Bilbao v Atletico Madrid (1200), Real Madrid v Eibar (1730), Real Scciedad v Osasuna (2000)
By Jay Cook|BELFORD – A Belford business is hoping to capture the Jersey Shore spirit by shining sunlight on its creative talent.Junction Boutique, located in the heart of the Belford Junction section of Middletown, is a one-stop shop destination displaying the wares of local artists.“There’s so much local talent and it’s our neighbors – it’s the community,” said owner Chris Slater.Previously located in an 800 square foot building beside Gem’s Bagels and Deli, Junction Boutique celebrated their grand reopening last Saturday at their new, 1500 square foot location at 79 Leonardville Rd.In the two years it’s been open, the roster of talent has grown from eight to 28 career crafters. They specialize in homemade bracelets, paintings, crafts and body care productsIt’s located in a bustling section of Middletown known as Campbell’s Junction – a busy crossroads between Routes 35 and 36 that is home to businesses like the longtime Sabato’s butcher shop, the new Belford Brewery, the Swagger barber shop, acclaimed Belford Bistro, Good Shepherd Book & Gift Shop and Chiafullo’s and Valentino’s.The Junction Boutique’s growing popularity led to the search for a new home base, said Slater.“All the artisans were asking for more space, and we had people asking us to join, and we couldn’t take anybody else on,” she said. “So we came here. It had to be in the Junction.”The crafters pay for booth space in the building, which ranges between $75 and $300 a month. Some take turns shop-keeping by spending one day a week tending the register and helping prospective buyers.Jeanine Riegler was one of the first to have a space in the original Junction Boutique. Her business – That’s How I Knot – specializes in what she describes as “original handmade macramé jewelry.”Riegler started out selling bracelets on the beach during the summertime. Now, she has turned that interest into a business venture, and occupies one of the largest spaces in Junction Boutique.Leonardo resident Kris Whittles is co-owner of the soap shop Wood Box Soap at Belford Junction Boutique.With prices ranging from $10 single-charm bracelets to elaborate $35 pieces with multi-colored stones, That’s How I Knot is also cultivating its brand on social media. She finds there are good benefits to having a fixed business space.“With a brick and mortar place to send people, I think it’s more professional,” Riegler said. “I think people love that they’re able to come in to see it and touch it.”Along the back wall of Junction Boutique, there is a refreshing fragrance in the air. Two Leonardo moms have built their business out of a necessity.Kris Whittles and Camille Miele, who are co-owners of the soap shop Wood Box Soap, both have family who deal with eczema. They often discussed how they could not find a remedy on the market.Using goat milk products, which they buy in bulk from Whole Foods, the company has crafted 22 different soaps named after local landmarks and areas, along with lines of body butters, lotions and bath bombs.Their most popular body soap is a coffee style, which uses coffee provided to them by Jersey Shore Coffee Roasters, a Leonardo-based coffee shop. Currently, that soap is on backorder.“We’re just keeping it local, and the fact that we’re supporting other businesses in Monmouth County is tremendous,” Whittles said. “I’ve lived in Middletown my whole life, and this is the first business of this kind.”Whittles also says the positive effects from goat milk are endless, which she claims has over 50 different vitamins and minerals that have anti-aging and anti-inflammatory benefits. Wood Box Soap also does not use any commercial preservatives, such as formaldehyde or parabens.The soap-making process is time consuming. It takes about six weeks for the necessary oils to solidify into soap. Each batch also yields roughly 36 pieces, which are individually boxed by Whittles and Miele. Each bar costs $7.Although Whittles says Wood Box Soap has had offers to move up the commercial food chain, she wants to keep the company its current size.“I don’t want to be in a big box store,” she said. “We want to be in a local Jersey setting, and that’s good for me.”On that same back wall, on the opposite side of the store, resides a local business that occupies its own niche in the Junction Boutique market.Kathleen Edinger of Belford is jumpstarting her tea blend business with a spot at the Junction Boutique, which showcases 28 artisans.“Chris is so cognizant of the fact that we’re all in it together,” said Kathleen Edinger, founder and owner of TeaScapes, a tea company based out of Belford. “It’s not her place, it’s our place.”Edinger, who has a background in physical therapy, moved into Junction Boutique in August of last year. Working with a wholesale tea distributer in Kentucky, she is watching her business grow each day.Currently, TeaScapes offers eight teas, six of which are signature blends that she, along with her family, have helped create. Each container of tea sells for $15.With awareness gained from space at Junction Boutique, Edinger now has the opportunity to soon move her operation into a full-time space, located just a town over.“I found that Atlantic Highlands will fit the bill for me because it is a ferry town that is right there,” she said. “We have the boating community in the summer, and I’m right on the street of First Avenue.”For shop owner Slater, Junction Boutique stems from a love for personalizing gifts. With that continued theme in mind, she sees no reason why the business won’t flourish in the future.“It can continue to grow with the different mediums,” she said. “You can focus on all the local talent and keep bringing new things in – there’s always a twist to it.”Junction Boutique artisans will participate in the Made in Monmouth exhibition April 8 at OceanFirst Bank Center at Monmouth University. On hand to offer congratulations on the new location was Freeholder Tom Arnone, who is the liaison to the county Division of Economic Development, and Middletown Township Mayor Gerald Scharfenberger, who both came to help cut the ceremonial ribbon.

Kiley, liaison to the Departments of Health and Human Services. “If you, or someone you know, are struggling with dealing with this unprecedented situation, please call the crisis counselors available at the County’s Health Department hotline.” All Monmouth County employees are available to residents by phone and by email, officials say. “The Board of Chosen Freeholders is working, in conjunction with the Monmouth County Health Department and the Office of Emergency Management, with State partners to respond to and mitigate this evolving situation,” said Arnone. He urged residents to continue efforts to defend agains COVID-19, the disease caused by the new coronavirus, by hand-washing, covering sneezes and coughs and practicing social distancing. Monmouth County library branches and public programs run by the Monmouth County Park System are closed until further notice. The parks and golf courses remain open. The hometowns of the patients were not disclosed in the announcement Monday by Monmouth County Freeholder Director Thomas A. Arnone and Freeholder Deputy Director Susan M. Kiley. FREEHOLD – There are 14 presumptive positive cases of COVID-19 in Monmouth County as of 10 a.m. Monday, March 16, officials say. Crisis counselors from the Monmouth County Division of Behavioral Health are available through the phone banks to help county residents who may be experiencing stress or anxiety due to the evolving situation. Public access to county buildings is restricted as of Monday, except for the Monmouth County Division of Social Services (MCDSS) at 3,000 Kozloski Road in Freehold. There are protections in place to prevent physical contact between Monmouth County employees and residents seeking services, the freeholders said. The Monmouth County Health Department phone bank is now open weekdays from 9 a.m. to 8 p.m. and can be reached at 732-845-2070.

richard macmanus Although we think SimpleGeo has a lot of potential, we should note that geolocation is a very crowded field. As Marshall Kirkpatrick explained last month, SimpleGeo is competing in some way with entrenched enterprise geodata megaliths like Esri; slow-baked open source standards-based technologies such as OpenGeo; hip startups like Locationlabs, Factual and Foursquare; BigCos like Facebook and Google; and free open-source geodata backed by big mapping companies. As a sign of things to come, earlier this month SimpleGeo launched into public beta two free application programming interfaces (APIs) that offer a large amount of information about 13 million places in the United States. This information will be available for free, forever, to anyone building an application that needs local context.Let us know in the comments if you agree with our choice for Most Promising company for 2011, or whether you think another company should’ve been selected.

Foursquare, Facebook, Google and others have developed successful products using location data. The idea behind SimpleGeo is to be a platform for others to utilize location data.Back in February, before SimpleGeo had launched, the company claimed to be indexing more than 1 million location-based objects every hour.

In this post we select a company that we think has the potential to be Best LittleCo of 2011. Next year we’re expecting a lot from data-centric companies and one in particular. This company provides a platform for developers to create location-aware applications: SimpleGeo.This is the 7th year that we’ve chosen a Most Promising company. Looking back at our results, we’ve hit the mark sometimes: for example, Feedburner in 2004 and Digg in 2005. Other times our picks have been accurate on the trends, but flew wide of the dartboard when it came to picking the successful companies. We chose sync app Sharpcast (now SugarSync) in 2006, but DropBox is better known now. We chose Brightkite in 2008, which ultimately lost out to Foursquare in the battle of the check-in apps. However, we think we have a winner here in SimpleGeo! SimpleGeo comes out of Boulder, Colorado – one of the most innovative startup scenes in the U.S. currently.As ReadWriteWeb’s Chris Cameron explained in May, SimpleGeo evolved out of an earlier company: CrashCorp, created by SocialThing founder Matt Galligan and former Digg Chief Architect Joe Stump. The original plan of CrashCorp was to create mobile games using augmented reality, but the young company soon learned that the hardest part was developing the back-end geolocation infrastructure that would support their applications. Thus was born SimpleGeo. 8 Best WordPress Hosting Solutions on the Market
