Share Save Data Provider Black Knight to Acquire Top of Mind 2 days ago Related Articles Demand Propels Home Prices Upward 2 days ago Delinquency Rates Nationwide U.S. Housing Market 2016-06-28 Brian Honea The national U.S. housing market is sustainable, despite slower-than-expected household formations and the slowdown in energy sector jobs, according to the latest Health of Housing Markets report from Nationwide Insurance.Much of the reason for the optimism lies in the fact that delinquency rates are down nearly across the board and are zeroing in on pre-bust levels, Nationwide reported. Though the report did not cite specific numbers, graphics indicate heartily decreasing delinquency rates in almost all markets eat of the Mississippi, with notable declines in the Northeast and Florida.Steady declines in delinquency in the western half of the U.S. were also generally good, though delinquency rates were on the rise in that far southwestern ends of Arizona and California.Regionally, however, the housing markets in the vast majority of metropolitan statistical areas were deemed sustainable, suggesting that most local housing markets are unlikely to see declines in the near term. Job and mortgage market conditions steadily improved as well, helping to boost housing sustainability in much of the country, the report stated.”We are seeing positive signals for homeowners, as well as local economies, in most metro areas.”David Berson, SVP and Chief Economist, NationwideHowever, there are some job concerns. Energy sector slowdowns are weighing on job growth and housing sustainability for a number of metros in energy-intensive areas, especially in North Dakota, Wyoming, and Texas. Nationwide’s assessment matches very closely to stats released by Arch Mortgage Insurance Tuesday that housing markets in these areas are at higher risk for seeing price declines over the next two years.Overall, though, the health of the U.S. market remained steady at just north of 100 on Nationwide’s index. The current value of 104.3 is the lowest level in two years, but an index value over 100 suggests “that the national housing market is healthy, with lower chances of a housing downturn over the next year as the index moves increasingly above the 100 break-even value,” the report stated.”We are seeing positive signals for homeowners, as well as local economies, in most metro areas,” said David Berson, Nationwide’s senior vice president and chief economist. “The drop in serious mortgage delinquency rates supports sustainable home price gains and housing activity. The more sustainable housing markets should allow for positive feedback loops in local economies, with strengthening job and income gains for residential real estate agents, mortgage bankers and home improvement workers.” Home / Daily Dose / Housing Market Weathering Ongoing Headwinds Scott Morgan is a multi-award-winning journalist and editor based out of Texas.

Junior guard Alyssa Karel and the Wisconsin Badgers will look to avoid another late-season collapse after a strong start to the Big Ten season.[/media-credit]Now that everyone’s finally grown accustomed to dating their checks 2010 instead of 2009, it’s a good time to peer back a calendar year and evaluate, for, as George Santayana famously said, “Those who cannot remember the past are condemned to repeat it.”And if the clock is flipped back to January 2009 for the Wisconsin women’s basketball team, one will discover an identical 13-4 mark heading into the team’s 18th game and the heart of Big Ten conference play.One also will discover that at that juncture in the ’08-’09 season, the team began a slide that saw them lose eight of their next 10 contests, including a five-game losing streak that essentially dashed any NCAA tournament hopes.So, considering this time around’s the cast of characters — with five returning starters, only two lost letterwinners and just three freshmen — is mostly the same, how does the team prevent duplicating the ’09 mid-January slump?“We have a different mentality this year,” Rae Lin D’Alie, the team’s senior point guard and leader in assists and steals, said. “This year, we understand what needs to be done to win. And we knew it last year, but this year we understand it — it’s a totally different thing.“You can know a lot of things but when you really understand them, it’s a different story because you’re willing to put in the work; you’re willing to put in what needs to be done in order to get those wins.”“[Last year’s collapse] has come up in conversations, but I think this year we just need to be more mentally tough,” Teah Gant, D’Alie’s lone fellow senior and a team tri-captain, said. “I think that’s what we lacked last year is we’d get through an hour of practice and be mentally drained and not into it. So that’s definitely one thing we’ve been focusing on this year.”Although the squad has produced a similar start to both of the past two seasons, the differences in how the 13-4 records were reached are crucial.Statistically speaking, head coach Lisa Stone’s team has gotten better across the board by shooting the ball better at the free throw line, from distance and from the field; rebounding at a higher rate; and, most importantly, improving in scoring and scoring defense.Moreover, the 2009 team did not feature freshman sensation Taylor Wurtz, who is fifth on the team in scoring and fourth in rebounding.While the majority of the current roster was around to experience last year’s travails and learn from them, the team would do well to focus last year’s slide, if only to remind them of the rigors of Big Ten play.“It’s just a totally different season,” Gant said. “Everyone wants to be at the top of their league and end their season on a good note and get into the NCAA tournament, so that becomes more of a focus as it comes down to conference play.“It’s just a lot more physical, a lot more mental. … In the beginning of the season, everybody’s really excited to play and get some games under their belts, but when it gets down toward the end, it comes down to the mental aspect and just staying focused the entire time.”It also is notable that with five road tests remaining before the team enters tournament play, , last year’s team limped to a 1-8 road conference mark. Thus far, three of the Badgers’ four losses have occurred away from the Kohl Center’s friendly confines.“Everybody would much rather play at home,” D’Alie said. “For us, though, we get caught up in that sometimes. We get caught up in who’s winning what and what’s our record and what’s our record on the road — where we’re best when we just play basketball, when we just play together.“I think the more we can take the focus off that and the more we can focus on ourselves and reaching our max potential then [the rest] will just fall right in.”And the rest will be history — whether or not a repeat is up to them.
Political experts discussed messaging in the presidential campaigns and upcoming events in the next nine weeks of the general election at the first installment of the “Road to the White House 2012: Politics, Media and Technology” series.College Democrats President Aaron Taxy and College Republicans President Madeline Lansky moderated a discussion with Dan Schnur, director of the Jesse M. Unruh Institute of Politics, Raphael Bostic, director of the Bedrosian Center on Governance and Public Enterprise and Roberto Suro, a faculty fellow at the Annenberg Center on Communication Leadership and Policy.Expert takes · Annenberg Faculty Fellow Roberto Suro, left, and Director of the Bedrosian Center on Governance and Public Enterprise Raphael Bostic discussed the future of the general election campaign at Wednesday’s panel. – Priyanka Patel | Daily TrojanThe weekly panels aim to provide an opportunity to listen to and take part in a discussion on topics ranging from domestic policy to the effects of swing voters.They are sponsored by the Unruh Institute of Politics, the Bedrosian Center on Governance and Public Enterprise and the Annenberg Center on Communication Leadership and Policy.Panelists analyzed and speculated the effects of last week’s Republican National Convention in Tampa, Fla. and the Democratic National Convention in Charlotte, N.C. this week. Suro said that, at this point, any incident could tip the election.“In this close of a race, any external event could produce a breakout moment for the other candidate,” Suro said.The event also touched upon how both the Obama and Romney campaigns will define the futures of their respective parties.“For all sorts of reasons in a multimedia era, it’s a lot harder for candidates to put a stamp on their party,” Schnur said. “I don’t know if there will be a Romney republicanism or an Obama democratism.”The first half hour of the discussion began with the student moderators posing questions to the panelists. During the second half of the panel, the audience was given the chance to question the experts directly.Students, including Nathaniel Haas, a freshman majoring in political science, posed questions to the panel. Haas said the discussion gave college students the opportunity to stay updated on important national events.“It’s hard to stay informed in college, so events like this are really helpful in allowing students to stay informed about issues that are important to us, like the presidential election,” Haas said.After the panel, Taxy said that the principal aim of the series is to foster a non-partisan conversation rather than a debate.“It is part of the atmosphere that the Trojan Family fosters,” Taxy said. “At USC, we like to have a conversation and learn something from someone who might disagree with us.”Lansky wrote in an email there are few opportunities for college students to express their views in a non-partisan way besides outlets like this series.“It’s nice to take a break from the biased discussions that revolve around politics and hear non-partisan, analytical perspectives,” Lansky wrote.The subject of next Wednesday’s panel is “The Key Issues: Jobs, Healthcare and Medicare —What Will Decide the Election?” It will run from noon to 1 p.m. in Ronald Tutor Campus Center 227.
