Entries to the 2019 awards opened last year, and Suffolk Family Carers was one of ten winners with the other nine UK charities awarded £30,000 and leadership development.This year £337,000 in prize money was awarded to UK charities, with ten winners receiving £30,000 each, and nine runner-up organisations receiving £3,000 each. As the overall winner Suffolk Family Carers was also awarded an additional £10,000 at the award ceremony at The Science Museum in London on Thursday 16 May.

A Pershing missile.Workers World joins those around the world protesting Washington’s plans to break the Intermediate-Range Nuclear Forces Treaty and increase the danger of a devastating nuclear war. We publish this analysis by Italian anti-militarist Manlio Dinucci, printed first in the Oct. 23 edition of Il Manifesto. Translation by WW managing editor John Catalinotto. The announcement that “Trump breaks the historic nuclear treaty with Moscow” — the Intermediate-Range Nuclear Forces Treaty (INF) — was no surprise. Now, however, it is official. To understand the scope of this act, we should review the historical context from which the INF Treaty was born.The president of the United States, Ronald Reagan, and the president of the USSR, Mikhail Gorbachev, signed the INF in Washington, on Dec. 8, 1987, after having agreed on it the year before at the Reykjavik, Iceland, summit. According to the INF, the United States undertook to eliminate the “Euromissiles”: the Pershing 2 ballistic missiles, deployed in Western Germany, and the land-based cruise missiles, deployed in Britain, Italy, Western Germany, Belgium and Holland. The Soviet Union committed to eliminating the SS-20 ballistic missiles, deployed on its territory.The INF Treaty established not only a ceiling to the deployment of a specific category of nuclear missiles, but also the elimination of all missiles in that category. By 1991, a total of 2,692 were eliminated. The limitation of the treaty was that it eliminated short-range and intermediate-range nuclear missiles launched from land, but not those launched from sea and air. Nevertheless, the INF Treaty was a first step on the road to real nuclear disarmament.This important result was essentially due to the “disarmament offensive” launched by the Soviet Union under Gorbachev. On Jan. 15, 1986, the Soviet Union had proposed not only to eliminate Soviet and U.S. mid-range missiles, but also to implement a comprehensive three-stage programme to ban nuclear weapons by the year 2000. This project remained on paper because Washington took advantage of the crisis and the disintegration of the rival superpower to increase its strategic superiority, including its nuclear superiority. The U.S. thus remained the only superpower on the world stage.It is no coincidence that Washington only called the INF Treaty into question when the U.S. saw its strategic advantage over Russia, China and other powers diminish. In 2014, the Obama administration accused Russia, without presenting any evidence, of having experimented with a cruise missile of the category prohibited by the treaty. The administration announced that “the United States is considering the deployment of ground-based missiles in Europe,” that is, the abandonment of the INF Treaty. (Il Manifesto, June 9, 2015)The Trump administration subsequently confirmed this plan. In fiscal year 2018, Congress authorized the financing of a research and development project for a cruise missile launched from the ground by a mobile platform on the road.NATO’s European members support the plan. At the recent North Atlantic Council meeting held at the level of ministers of defense, Elizabeth Trenta (of the Five-Star Movement) represented Italy. There, Trenta said that “the INF Treaty is in danger because of the actions of Russia,” which she accused of deploying “a destabilizing missile system, which poses a serious risk to our security.Moscow denies that this missile system violates the INF Treaty and, in turn, accuses Washington of having installed in Poland and Romania launch ramps of interceptor missiles (those of the “shield”), which can be used to launch cruise missiles with nuclear warheads.According to reports leaked by the administration, the U.S. is preparing to deploy intermediate-range nuclear missiles launched from the ground not only in Europe against Russia, but also in the Pacific and Asia against China.FacebookTwitterWhatsAppEmailPrintMoreShare this

The latest CIRT transaction includes the participation of an international reinsurer for the first time, according to Fannie Mae.”Through CIRT, we remain focused on finding new ways to build liquidity and move credit risk away from Fannie Mae. In this transaction we attracted new global capital, providing opportunities for reinsurers to gain exposure to the U.S. housing market,” said Rob Schaefer, VP for credit enhancement strategy and management. “We’ve focused on educating reinsurers on our company’s strategic approach to managing credit risk and to explore opportunities to work together. We want to continue to lead this space and grow the CIRT program as a repeatable, frequent structure, and increase the number of reinsurers we work with on these deals. We look forward to bringing similar transactions to market in the future.”The latest transaction, CIRT-2015-2, became effective on July 1, 2015, with Fannie Mae retaining the risk for the first 50 basis points of loss on an $8.1 billion pool of loans. Reinsurers would cover the next 250 basis points up to a maximum of about $202.5 million after the $40.5 million retention layer covered by Fannie Mae is exhausted. The coverage is provided based on actual losses for a term of 10 years, according to Fannie Mae.The loans in the pool for CIRT-2015-2 were acquired by Fannie Mae during a four-month period from April to August of 2014. The reference loan pool includes 30-year fixed-rate loans with LTV ratios between 60 and 80 percent.Fannie Mae is also reducing risk to taxpayers through other forms of risk transfer, including its flagship Connecticut Avenue Series (CAS) program. In mid-July, Fannie Mae announced a $1.56 billion credit risk sharing transaction under the CAS series, putting the Enterprise over the milestone of $10 billion in notes issued through CAS since the program began in October 2013. Through the CAS and CIRT programs combined, Fannie Mae has transferred risk to private investors on 60 percent of recent acquisitions and about $400 billion worth of loans. According to Fannie Mae, the transactions are structured so that the projected losses would be limited to the small first-loss piece of credit risk retained by Fannie Mae if the loans covered experienced the same stress as in the most recent housing crisis.For information on these transactions or on Fannie Mae’s approach to credit risk transfer, click here. in Daily Dose, Featured, News, Secondary Market Demand Propels Home Prices Upward 2 days ago Subscribe

When servicers buy out delinquent loans from Ginnie Mae pools, they are reclassified as portfolio loans, which can lead to a decrease in the Ginnie Mae forbearance share and an increase in the portfolio/PLS share,” said Mike Fratantoni, MBA’s SVP and Chief Economist. “While new forbearance requests dropped slightly, the rate of exits from forbearance was at the slowest pace since MBA began tracking exit data last summer.”Fratantoni added, “Overall, the forbearance numbers have been little changed over the past few months. Homeowners still in forbearance are likely facing ongoing challenges with lost jobs, lost income, and other impacts from the pandemic.”Of the cumulative forbearance exits for the period from June 1, 2020 through January 24, 2021, 28.6% represented borrowers who continued to make their monthly payments during their forbearance period; 25.5% resulted in a loan deferral/partial claim; 15.6% resulted in reinstatements, in which past-due amounts are paid back when exiting forbearance; 13.4% represented borrowers who did not make all of their monthly payments and exited forbearance without a loss mitigation plan in place yet; 7.5% resulted in a loan modification or trial loan modification; 7.5% resulted in loans paid off through either a refinance or by selling the home; and the remaining 1.9% resulted in repayment plans, short sales, or deed-in-lieus.For the MBA’s full weekly forbearance findings, visit mba.org.

ChiccoDodiFC/iStockBy MORGAN WINSOR, ABC News(ATLANTA) — A number of police officers in Georgia’s capital and most populous city have resigned in recent weeks amid nationwide protests against police brutality and racial injustice.The Atlanta Police Foundation revealed Monday night that eight officers within the Atlanta Police Department have resigned since June 1. Earlier Monday, the group had inaccurately reported 19 resignations and later apologized for the error. “We are now going into the third consecutive week of unabated protests in which officers have worked 12-hour shifts seven days per week,” Atlanta Police Foundation president and CEO Dave Wilkinson said in a statement. “As you can imagine, their stress levels are exacerbated by physical and emotional exhaustion. We are grateful for the sacrifices they are making every day and will continue to support them while accelerating the programs under the Atlanta Police Foundation’s mission in order to address police reform and other issues the protests and their aftermath have illuminated.”Protests against police brutality and racial injustice erupted in cities across the United States and around the world in the wake of George Floyd’s death at the hands of police. Floyd, an unarmed 46-year-old black man, died in Minneapolis on May 25 shortly after a white police officer was filmed kneeling on his neck as three other officers stood by.Demonstrations intensified in Atlanta after Rayshard Brooks, an unarmed 27-year-old black man, was shot to death by a city police officer in the parking lot of a Wendy’s last Friday. The deadly encounter led to large groups of people protesting at the scene, chanting Brooks’ name, while some appeared to set fire to the fast food restaurant.Just hours after Friday’s shooting, Atlanta Police Chief Erika Shields submitted her resignation to Mayor Keisha Lance Bottoms. Shields had led the police department since December 2016.“What has become abundantly clear over the last couple of weeks in Atlanta is that while we have a police force full of men and women who work alongside our communities with honor, respect and dignity,” Bottoms said at a press conference Saturday, “there has been a disconnect with what our expectations are and should be, as it relates to interactions with our officers and the communities in which they are entrusted to protect.” Copyright © 2020, ABC Audio.

Christopher Tabert. “It felt very similar to the steam test launches we did this summer [in the F-35C]. It was quite an honor for me to play a small part in our launch today.”This summer, the F-35C test team completed more than 50 steam catapult launches to perform an initial structural survey and collected steam ingestion data. The steam ingestion data produced robust results, allowing a reduction in the number of test launches by four.Along with the steam launch data, the EMALS launch testing also provided information for the United Kingdom’s Ministry of Defence as the UK proceeds with including EMALS in the Queen Elizabeth-class aircraft carrier.In the past 12 months, the EMALS team launched a T-45 Goshawk, an E-2D Advanced Hawkeye, a C-2A Greyhound and several F/A-18 aircraft with and without stores.Both EMALS and the F-35C are currently in test and evaluation, and represent technological leaps from the Navy’s current fleet. EMALS is set to install on the future USS Gerald R. Ford (CVN 78).“What a great way to punctuate this year’s Centennial of Naval Aviation events,” said Kathy Donnelly, senior executive for aircraft launch, recovery and support equipment engineering at Lakehurst. “Our team is paving the way for the next hundred years today.”The closing ceremony of the Navy’s Centennial of Naval Aviation events is scheduled for Dec. 1 in Washington, D.C.The F-35C carrier variant of the Joint Strike Fighter is distinct from the F-35A and F-35B variants with its larger wing surfaces and reinforced landing gear to withstand catapult launches and deck landing impacts associated with the demanding aircraft carrier environment. Initial carrier trials for the F-35C are scheduled for 2013. The F-35C is undergoing test and evaluation at NAS Patuxent River and Joint Base McGuire-Dix-Lakehurst before delivery to the fleet.EMALS is a complete carrier-based launch system designed for the future USS Gerald R. Ford (CVN 78) and all future CVN 78-class aircraft carriers. EMALS has six subsystems and will expand the operational capability of the Navy’s future carriers by permitting higher sortie rates and reduced costs compared to legacy systems. CVN 78 is more than 30 percent complete, with some production EMALS components already delivered to the shipyard to maintain a 2015 delivery schedule.[mappress]Naval Today Staff , November 29, 2011; Image: navy View post tag: century Training & Education
