Melting polar icecaps. An entire continent on fire. And around the world, youth-led mass movements demanding action in response.The global climate emergency has reached a new level of public awareness in recent years, spurred by phenomena such as the Fridays for Future movement — youth climate strikes — led by Greta Thunberg. Recently, scientists cited climate change as a factor in the unprecedented intensity of bushfires in Australia in 2019-20.In the face of this crisis, Archbishop Linda Nicholls, primate of the Anglican Church of Canada, has called on the church to take action on climate change, calling stewardship of the Earth and the care of creation “a core responsibility of our faith.” The primate compares concern of young people for the future of their planet with the fear of nuclear annihilation she experienced growing up during the Cold War.Read the entire article here.

The study also shows that only 29 of the Traveller population in East County Limerick is over the age of 50, which is only six per cent of the Traveller community in the area.Sign up for the weekly Limerick Post newsletter Sign Up The assessment was undertaken as a collaborative study between the HSE and Ballyhoura Development, supported by Sheila Cahill Consulting, between March and June of this year.The purpose of the assessment was to identify the health and wellbeing needs of Travellers living in East County Limerick. Although national figures and statistics are available, until now there has been no definitive research undertaken into the health needs of Travellers in the region.The study sought to establish a clear demographic profile of the Traveller community in East Limerick, and to examine a baseline of the health status of Travellers, particularly areas in need of attention, as well as identifying the key factors, which influence and affect the physical and mental health of Travellers.Ballyhoura Development manager Eileen O’Keeffe said that the link between health and the inequalities that exist in housing and education available to members of the Travelling Community cannot be ignored.“With over 90 per cent of Travellers living in East Limerick participating in the assessment, this report can be regarded as a definitive study which will help to inform the development and implementation of appropriate responses and solutions to the diverse range of health needs amongst the Traveller Community, as outlined in the report,” she explained.One of the key findings of the assessment is that less than 50 per cent of Travellers living in East Limerick were identified in the 2016 census, meaning that the Traveller community in the area is twice as large as was previously recorded.The HSE Traveller Health Unit will now consider the findings of the assessment.

Based on an analysis by the Urban Institute, several California locales top the list of U.S. cities most at risk of a housing bubble, including San Francisco and Los Angeles.As the Urban Institute points out, house prices have been on the rise since 2012, outpacing inflation by 34 percent. However, this rate is nowhere near the runaway price growth seen in the late ‘90s and early ‘00s. Moreover, there’s the question of what relation that growth has to household income and speculation.The Housing Finance Policy Center’s housing affordability index attempts to boil these numbers down to a more digestible metric by tracking “whether the median household can afford a standard mortgage on a median-priced house.” Right now, those numbers nationwide are looking good. According to the Urban Institute’s analysis, “Today, the median household can afford a house that is $70,000 more expensive than the price of the median house sold.”That’s good news for much of the nation. But for the cities most at risk of a housing bubble, soaring home prices are combining with a low affordability based on the housing affordability index. After examining the 37 largest metropolitan statistical areas (MSAs), the Urban Institute’s analysis pegs six California cities among their top ten cities most at risk of a housing bubble.San Francisco-Redwood City-South San Francisco tops the list, tied with San Jose-Sunnyvale-Santa Clarita. Oakland-Hayward-Berkeley slides in at number three, tied with the Miami, Florida area. Los Angeles-Long Beach-Glendale holds the seventh spot, just above Riverside-San Bernardino-Ontario. The Sacramento area is tied for ninth place with Denver, Colorado.The Urban Institute suggests several factors as possibly contributing to the potential unsustainability of housing prices in these MSAs, including housing shortages and international investment.Five Star Institute President and CEO Ed Delgado recently addressed the topic of potential housing bubbles during a keynote presentation at the 51st Annual William W. Gibson, Jr. Mortgage Lending Institute at the University of Texas at Austin School of Law. During a presentation entitled “U.S. Housing Market Trends: An Insider’s Perspective,” Delgado warned that several MSAAs are showing double-digit home price appreciation and inventory shortages.“The patterns we see today in the housing market include some troubling signs,” Delgado said. in Daily Dose, Featured, Headlines, Journal, Market Studies, News Tagged with: Ed Delgado Housing Bubble Housing Finance Policy Center mortgage The Urban Institute The Week Ahead: Nearing the Forbearance Exit 2 days ago Subscribelast_img read more

Trail Mix: Annie Ford’s City Life and Blue Ridge Sound

Posted On Dec 30 2020 by

first_imgMulti-instrumentalist Annie Ford’s musical roots can be traced back to her childhood log cabin home in the mountains of Virginia.  Between rounds of stacking cord wood and scaring crows from the garden, Annie took up the viola; over the years, she has added accordion, banjo, guitar, fiddle, and clarinet to her instrumental arsenal.  Now living in Seattle, Annie spent some time in both New Orleans and California; each locale left an indelible mark upon her music.  This month, Annie and her band release their eponymously named debut record. Annie Ford Band is an outstanding collection of ghostly country ballads and honky tonk rockers.Trail Mix recently caught up with Annie to talk about life in Seattle, the allure of the log cabin, and “Buick 1966,” which is featured on this month’s mix.BRO – Latest song/musical obsession?AF – “Should Have Known Better,” by Possessed By Paul James.  I believe there is a deep well inside most of us, especially for expressing ourselves.  You can just tell he has gone deeper into it by the range of emotion pouring out in his performances.  Paul has amazing passion and a powerful stage presence.  It is inspiring that he balances being a touring musician, father, and school teacher.BRO – Best part about living in a log cabin?AF – I think the best part of living in a log cabin is knowing where the materials came from and who built it.  The fact that the logs of the house were hewn from the surrounding woods was pretty special.  It was primarily my dad who build the house and that somehow added to the authenticity.  And you also cannot beat the glow of a wood stove at night in the winter time.BRO – Favorite outdoor activity?AF – My favorite outdoor activity is definitely hiking.  The better overall lay of the land I can get the better.  It provides a sometimes much needed break from the city.BRO – What’s the story behind “Buick 1966”?AF – It is based on a murder that happened in 1972 in Grand Canyon National Park.  I read it in a collection of stories about death in the Grand Canyon.  I wanted the song to feel like a Hitchcock movie, lots of images without saying exactly how the murder happened.  It ended up having three distinct feels based on moving through the varied landscapes and emotions changing.BRO – Finish this in five words or less – The folk music scene in Seattle is . . .AF –  . . . varied, thriving, collaborative, and authentic.For more information on Annie Ford, her band, upcoming shows, and how you can get your hands on the new record, surf over to www.anniefordband.com.last_img read more
