  • Fed Holds Steady on Interest Rates

    first_img About Author: Phil Banker Despite rising “consumer sentiment” and confidence in the markets, the Federal Reserve announced no new interest rate hikes at the Wednesday meeting of the Federal Open Market Committee (FOMC).The FOMC kept the current benchmark overnight lending rate target at a range of 0.5 percent to 0.75 percent. The Fed raised the target a quarter of a point in December 2016, only the second hike in the past 10 years.Per a statement released on the Fed’s website, the Committee attributed the steady interest rates to a generally improving economy.“Information received since the FOMC met in December indicates that the labor market has continued to strengthen and that economic activity has continued to expand at a moderate pace,” the Committee said. “Job gains remained solid and the unemployment rate stayed near its recent low. Household spending has continued to rise moderately while business fixed investment has remained soft. Measures of consumer and business sentiment have improved of late.”Federal Reserve Chair Janet Yellen said recently that as the economy nears full employment, the Fed mustn’t be too slow with rate hikes.”Waiting too long to begin moving toward the neutral rate could risk a nasty surprise down the road – either too much inflation, financial instability, or both,” Yellen said in remarks prepared for delivery to the Commonwealth Club of California in San Francisco. “”In that scenario, we could be forced to raise interest rates rapidly, which in turn could push the economy into a new recession,” she said.The Fed went on to say they plan on supporting the growing job market.“The stance of monetary policy remains accommodative, thereby supporting some further strengthening in labor market conditions and a return to 2 percent inflation,” they said.The Fed indicated in December 2016, following the aforementioned rate hike, that three additional hikes are on the way this year.Danielle Hale, Managing Director of Housing Research with the National Association of Realtors, said today’s announcement was in line with their expectations.“We weren’t anticipating a change of rates today, but we anticipate they’ll be raising funds in the future,” Hale said. “We think mortgage rates will continue to move up gradually with that policy of normalization.” Fed Holds Steady on Interest Rates Related Articles The Best Markets For Residential Property Investors 2 days ago  Print This Post Tagged with: Fed Federal Reserve The Week Ahead: Nearing the Forbearance Exit 2 days ago The Best Markets For Residential Property Investors 2 days ago Previous: McCalla Raymer Pierce and Hunt Leibert Jacobson Announce Merger Next: Blackstone’s Bet Pays Off With Invitation Homes IPO Data Provider Black Knight to Acquire Top of Mind 2 days ago Sign up for DS News Daily Servicers Navigate the Post-Pandemic World 2 days ago Governmental Measures Target Expanded Access to Affordable Housing 2 days agocenter_img February 1, 2017 1,070 Views Servicers Navigate the Post-Pandemic World 2 days ago Share Save Data Provider Black Knight to Acquire Top of Mind 2 days ago Subscribe Demand Propels Home Prices Upward 2 days ago Fed Federal Reserve 2017-02-01 Phil Banker in Daily Dose, Featured, Government, Headlines, News Phil Banker began his career in journalism after graduating from the University of North Texas.

  • Dunster House renewed

    first_img 1Dunster House and the Weeks Bridge seen from the Mather House tower. Kris Snibbe/Harvard Staff Photographer Shivangi Parmar ’17 thinks life in newly renovated Dunster House is “fantastic.”The plethora of common rooms, lounging areas, the student grill, and conference rooms “collectively provide students with opportunities to interact with their friends while offering them plenty of spaces to work privately,” she said. “Not to mention the renovation is absolutely beautiful and new visitors to the House are always pleasantly surprised!”Dunster House is the first House to be completely renewed, informed by test projects that transformed Stone Hall at Quincy House and McKinlock Hall at Leverett House. With wonderful discoveries at every turn — a merger of the modern and the historical — perhaps the greatest revelation found beneath the surface in Dunster House is the commitment to sustainability coupled with community-minded design.After living in the updated Dunster for a semester, students continue to be delighted by its offerings. “I feel so incredibly lucky to be in Dunster for the next few years,” said Spencer Kiehm ’18. “Whether I want to spend some time exercising in the weight room, studying with my friends in one of the common spaces, or hanging out and playing pool, there is always a beautiful space in the new house to do whatever I want.”“I’m grateful for the tremendous job that the project managers have done and look forward to seeing their upcoming makeover of Winthrop House,” echoed Kevin Chen ’17. 11A Dunster House roof shield with bird motifs glows gold in the sunset.

  • Wild winter

    first_imgBy David Emory StooksburyUniversity ofGeorgiaThe winter climate outlook for Georgia is, in a word, variable.Georgians this winter can expect wide swings in temperatures withseveral extremely cold outbreaks. The best advice is to preparefor very cold weather.There will also be times when temperatures will be much abovenormal, reminding us why we like living in the South.With wide temperature swings expected, the probability of severethunderstorms and tornados throughout the winter is above normal,too.Winter tornados are common in Georgia. They can happen any timeof day or night. A NOAA weather radio is an essential safety itemthat all homes, businesses, churches and places where peoplegather should have.Really coldIn the mountains, low temperatures below zero can be expectedthis winter. Single digit lows can be expected as far south asthe northern coastal plain. Much of south Georgia can expect lowsaround 10 degrees. Even along the coast, lows in the lower teensare expected this winter.However, the winter also promises periods of very nice weather.High temperatures ranging from the upper 60s in the mountains toaround 80 in south Georgia are expected.Atmospheric scientists have a good understanding of the generalclimate pattern for the winter. What we don’t have is a goodability to forecast the timing of major cold outbreaks and warmperiods weeks in advance.Accurate forecasts of specific daily temperatures are onlyavailable for six to 10 days in advance.The patternThe winter climate pattern in the Southeast is primarilydetermined by the Southern Oscillation – El Nino, or ENSO, phase.In the El Nino phase, Georgia expects a cool, wet winter. In theLa Nina phase, we expect a warm, dry winter. Now, though, we’rein a neutral phase. For Georgia, a neutral phase brings wideswings in temperature.All major cold outbreaks that have affected Florida citrus haveoccurred during neutral phase winters.The rainfall outlook is uncertain. Under the neutral phase,winter rainfall patterns show great variability, and atmosphericscientists have very little skill in forecasting it. Someneutral-phase winters are very dry, while others are very wet.Most are near normal.Snow?So what’s the probability of a white Christmas in Georgia thisyear? Outside of the mountains, it’s between zero and nil. Forthe mountains, the probability increases but is still low.With periods of extreme cold, though, there’s a better chancethan normal that Georgia will have some frozen precipitation thiswinter. At least one major winter weather event is expectedacross north Georgia this winter.Real-time weather conditions from the University of Georgianetwork of weather stations are available atwww.georgiaweather.net.(David Emory Stooksbury is the state climatologist and aprofessor of engineering and atmospheric sciences in theUniversity of Georgia College of Agricultural and EnvironmentalSciences.)last_img read more
