    first_img to go further News Democratic Republic of CongoAfrica Journalist arrested on provincial governor’s orders News February 24, 2021 Find out more Help by sharing this information Congolese reporter wounded by gunshot while covering protest in Goma Reporters Without Borders is worried by the National Intelligence Agency’s warning to the managers of three local radio stations in the eastern province of Nord-Kivu that their stations will be closed down unless they stop retransmitting the programmes of French public broadcaster Radio France Internationale (RFI).“This threat is unacceptable,” Reporters Without Borders said. “It confirms that the government is determined to hound both RFI and local media and suggests a move towards authoritarianism. The population has already been denied access to independent news and information since RFI’s local broadcasts were suspended on 26 July. Media freedom in its entirety is in danger if local radio stations are now being threatened with closure.”The press freedom organisation added: “The National Intelligence Agency does not have the power to suspend a news media. Only a court can do that. We urge the central government in Kinshasa to put a stop to this kind of intimidation. We also reiterate our desire for RFI to be allowed to resume local broadcasting without delay.”Kennedy Wema of Radio Télé Graben, Rochereau Kambakamba of Radio Liberté and John Tchipenda of Radio Scolaire went to the National Intelligence Agency’s local office on 12 August in response to a summons received the previous day and were told during the ensuing interview that they could be closed down if they did not stop retransmitting RFI.In fact, according to the information available to Reporters Without Borders, the only station currently retransmitting RFI is Radio Télé Graben. Wema, its manager, told Reporters Without Borders that the station would definitely continue to broadcast RFI until it received official notification in writing.A total of 27 local radio stations are RFI’s partners in Democratic Republic of Congo. Its local signal was suspended after it broadcast information provided by the UN Mission in Democratic Republic of Congo (MONUC) explaining why certain former rebel units decided to desert from the Congolese army, into which they had recently been incorporated.See the release RSF_en Reporter jailed in DRC for allegedly defaming parliamentariancenter_img News Organisation News Follow the news on Democratic Republic of Congo Receive email alerts February 18, 2021 Find out more Democratic Republic of CongoAfrica August 17, 2009 – Updated on January 20, 2016 Several radio stations threatened with closure for retransmitting RFI February 16, 2021 Find out morelast_img read more

Additionally, between Q1 2010 and Q1 2019, the average equity per borrower increased from approximately $75,000 to around $171,000.“Home prices have increased steadily since 2011, creating record amounts of home equity and putting homeowners in a good position to weather future downturns,” said Molly Boesel, Principal Economist at CoreLogic.But the rise in home prices has also impacted housing affordability, especially in some areas of the country.Take California for example. According to Frank Nothaft, Chief Economist at CoreLogic, “While California’s home prices grew considerably from 2013 to 2018, affordability issues in the state have since hampered growth with the state’s average annual home price dropping from 7.4% in 2018 to 4.9% in 2019.”The effects of affordability are being felt by millennials—the largest cohort of homebuyers. According to the report, millennials made up 44% of home-purchase mortgage applications in 2018. However, metros in California had the lowest percentage of millennials applying for a mortgage.Additionally, the millennial share of homebuyers was higher in more affordable metros. Citing data from the CoreLogic Market Conditions Indicator the report said that of the top 10 metros for millennial buyers, four (Pittsburgh; Rochester, New York; Wichita, Kansas; and Grand Rapids, Michigan) were undervalued, five (Buffalo, New York; Milwaukee; Albany, New York; Provo, Utah; and Des Moines, Iowa) were at value, and one (Salt Lake City) was overvalued .But despite the challenges of affordability, the housing market is set to remain stable over the next 24 months, the report found. “We expect the housing market to enter a normalcy phase over the next 24 months. With prices, neither rising too fast nor too slow, and with a growing stream of young households looking to buy homes over the next two decades, the long-term view looks healthy,” said Ralph McLaughlin, Deputy Chief Economist.
