Free expression groups call on Arron Banks to drop SLAPP lawsuit against Carole Cadwalladr

We call on Banks to drop this abusive lawsuit and cease efforts to stifle public interest reporting.We note with concern the abusive approach Banks has taken in targeting Cadwalladr as an individual on the basis of comments she made orally – including a single sentence in a TED talk – and on Twitter, rather than similar reporting that had been published in the Guardian. Cadwalladr is a laureate of Reporters Without Borders’ press freedom prize – and a series of prestigious journalism prizes – for her courageous reporting on the subversion of democratic processes in the US and UK. As such, she has explored the funding of Banks’ Leave.EU campaign and questioned Banks’ ties to Russia following the leak of documents exposing the Russian government’s offer of a gold and diamond deal to Banks – serious matters that are clearly of high public interest.We are alarmed by the increasing use of SLAPP lawsuits as a means of attempting to silence public interest reporting – a trend that is posing a growing threat to freedom of expression internationally. We reiterate our call for the UK government to address this as a matter of priority, including through the consideration of anti-SLAPP legislation.We also encourage support for Cadwalladr’s crowdfunder to build up a team to pursue further investigative reporting into data, disinformation and democracy, and show that such bullying tactics will not be successful in silencing critical reporting.Signed:Reporters Without Borders (RSF)ARTICLE 19European Federation of Journalists (EFJ)European Centre for Press and Media Freedom (ECPMF)Greenpeace UKIndex on CensorshipPEN InternationalScottish PENPress contact: RSF UK Bureau Director Rebecca Vincent on [email protected] or +44 (0)207 324 8903 New threat against The Shift News in Malta highlights growing international abuse of defamation laws We, the undersigned organisations, welcome today’s judgment on meaning in the case of Arron Banks vs Carole Cadwalladr.

Market-based measures of inflation compensation have increased in recent months but remain low; survey-based measures of longer-term inflation expectations are little changed, on balance.As expected, the Fed left interest rates unchanged this time around, following the hike to a range of 1.25 percent to 1.5 percent during the December 2017 FOMC meeting. The vote to maintain the current benchmark interest rate was unanimous. The FOMC statement explained, “The stance of monetary policy remains accommodative, thereby supporting strong labor market conditions and a sustained return to 2 percent inflation.” Analysts expect another rate hike to come in March, following the first FOMC meeting under the leadership of new Fed Chair Jerome Powell.The FOMC statement did revise projections when it comes to inflation, however. “ The Committee expects that, with further gradual adjustments in the stance of monetary policy, economic activity will expand at a moderate pace and labor market conditions will remain strong,” the FOMC statement says. “Inflation on a 12‑month basis is expected to move up this year and to stabilize around the Committee’s 2 percent objective over the medium term.”Powell is broadly expected to maintain a steady course for the Fed similar to Yellen’s. During his initial November 2017 confirmation hearings before the U.S. Senate Committee on Banking, Housing, and Urban Affairs, Powell emphasized the importance of looking back over the various regulations and legislation instituted since the 2008 financial crisis and making sure it still makes sense. When asked by Senator Elizabeth Warren (D-Massachusetts) if he believed there were any regulations that needed to be stronger, Powell said, “Honestly, Senator, I think they’re tough enough.”He also championed the notion of tailoring regulations to match the size and importance of the institution in question, with a decrease in intensity and stringency for smaller and regional banks. Powell said he was in favor of exempting banks worth less than $10 billion from the Volker Rule, and projected an eventual Fed balance sheet total of between $2.5 and $3 trillion within three to five years.

The aim is to produce up to 20,000 new housing units for workers over the next decade. Much of the new units are aimed at teachers, police, and other middle-class workers in the Menlo Park area, Wall Street Journal reports.Facebook is following Google’s announcement earlier this year in which the company announced that it will spend $1 billion on efforts aimed at increasing affordable housing in the San Francisco Bay area, in part by utilizing some of Google’s land.The Bay Area is one of the most expensive areas in the country. Despite a 39% increase in inventory and an ongoing increase in affordability within the San Francisco Bay area, many homeowners and potential homeowners are still finding the area unaffordable. Google hopes its plan will address the shortage of affordable housing options for long-time middle and low income residents, as inventory continues to slip in California.Microsoft made a similar investment as well, with a $500 million investment into Seattle housing. Making the announcement, Brad Smith, President and Chief Legal Officer at Microsoft said that as a company Microsoft, which is headquartered in the neighboring city of Redmond, was very focused for the past 15 years on the health of the region and had “pursued this by focusing on two issues above all else—education and transportation.”Smith said that the changing times have made the company think about expanding their focus to include “the affordability of housing.”To understand the problem of affordable housing in the region, Microsoft partnered with Zillow and the Boston Consulting Group to analyze the need to preserve existing and create new affordable housing units for low- and middle-income households in the Puget Sound region that is comprised of Seattle and nine other surrounding cities, including Redmond.

HUD Proposes Changes to Expedite Construction of Manufactured Housing

first_imgHome / Daily Dose / HUD Proposes Changes to Expedite Construction of Manufactured Housing  Print This Post Share Save Dr. Benjamin Carson, Secretary of the Department of Housing and Urban Development (HUD), announced a proposed rule Thursday to revise the federal Manufactured Home Construction and Safety Standard to “expedite construction” of manufactured housing. “The nation’s affordable housing crisis can’t be solved by one measure alone, but today we’re proposing changes that remove more of the red tape that stands between the production of safe, quality homes, and the nation’s families and individuals that need these homes to make homeownership a reality,” Carson said during HUD’s Driving Affordable Housing Across America Bus Tour in Russellville, Alabama. “This proposal is a strong example of how we believe we can both reduce regulation and improve safety and security for the nation’s homebuyers.” The Department is recommending updates to modernize code provision and allow for more optimal use of manufactured housing in urban areas—including opportunity zones—additional requirements for the installation of carbon monoxide alarms or detectors, and additional provisions for homes designed for structures attached at the site. An ATTOM Data Solutions report from 2019 found that about half the nation’s opportunity zones saw median home prices rise more than the national increase of 8.3% from the Q3 2018 to Q3 2019.The report also shows that 79% of the zones had median home prices in the third quarter of 2019 that were less than the national median of $270,000—almost the same percentage as in the Q2 2019. Some 46% of the zones had median prices of less than $150,000, also roughly the same as in the prior quarter.“The nationwide home-price surge in the third quarter spread through so-called Opportunity Zones, much as it did the rest of the country,” said Todd Teta, Chief Product Officer with ATTOM Data Solutions. “Despite sitting in some of the nation’s poorest areas, Opportunity Zones were hardly immune from a housing boom heading into its ninth year. That’s encouraging news for people living in those communities as well as investors looking to take advantage of the Opportunity Zones program.”The Office of Manufactured Housing Program, part of HUD’s Office of Housing, oversees the construction law, standards, and regulation of manufactured housing in the federal Manufactured Home Construction and Safety Standards. HUD states manufactured housing provides nearly 10% of all single-family housing stock—providing homeownership to more than 22 million Americans. “I appreciate Secretary Carson touring the great work of Clayton, one of Alabama’s finest,” said Alabama Gov. Kay Ivey. “I applaud him and the Trump Administration for being laser-focused on removing burdensome regulations of big government and making homeownership an easier possibility for Alabama’s families.” January 31, 2020 2,081 Views Demand Propels Home Prices Upward 2 days ago in Daily Dose, Featured, Government, News Related Articles Governmental Measures Target Expanded Access to Affordable Housing 2 days ago The Best Markets For Residential Property Investors 2 days ago About Author: Mike Albanese Tagged with: Affordability Manufactured Housing Opportunity Zones red tape Regulations Data Provider Black Knight to Acquire Top of Mind 2 days ago Mike Albanese is a reporter for DS News and MReport.

Crews combing river after Nashville firefighter vanishes: ‘This a mystery,’ sheriff’s office says

first_imgNashville Fire Department(NASHVILLE, Tenn.) — Today marks day 10 of the search for missing Nashville firefighter Jesse Reed who mysteriously disappeared, local authorities said.Reed, 32, hasn’t been seen since March 5 or 6, according to ABC affiliate WKRN. The firefighter’s Jeep, however, was found submerged March 6 in the Tennessee River, the Humphreys County Sheriff’s Office said. Humphreys County Sheriff Chris Davis said the evidence points to Reed vanishing into the river but it’s not clear how he got there, WKRN reported.“This a mystery and everyone wants to try to figure it out,” the sheriff’s office said in a Facebook post on Tuesday. Underwater sonar, drones, helicopters and underwater rovers have been used in the ongoing search of the river, the Nashville Fire Department said.“This has been a difficult situation for all of us in the public safety profession,” the sheriff’s department said in a post. “Of course, it is also an unimaginable ordeal for the family and friends of Jesse.” Reed, a firefighter and advanced EMT, joined the Nashville Fire Department in October 2013, Nashville Fire Department spokesman Joseph Pleasant told ABC News.In his most recent review from July 2017, Reed “received ‘commendable’ up to ‘exemplary’ in a number of the categories we evaluate on,” Pleasant said. “His supervisor’s comment was, ‘Firefighter Reed continues to impress and work well with his peers.’”“One of the silver linings is listening to the funny stories about Jesse,” the sheriff’s department said. “It is a true testament at the man he is. Please keep the family and friends in your prayers.” Pleasant said everyone is holding out hope that he’ll be found safe.The sheriff’s office wrote Wednesday, “We hope and pray that tomorrow will be the day.”Copyright © 2018, ABC Radio.
