‘No Trump. No KKK. No Racist Fascist USA!’

first_imgFacebookTwitterWhatsAppEmailPrintMoreShare thisFacebookTwitterWhatsAppEmailPrintMoreShare this Roanoke, Va.In one of the largest protests in recent Roanoke history, a diverse rainbow of community members sent a clear message on July 25: There will be resistance to the anti-worker racism of Donald Trump and his vice presidential running mate Mike Pence in Southwest Virginia.Standing for hours in sweltering 90-plus degree heat, protesters held signs slamming Trump, Pence and their supporters, and chanting, “No Trump! No KKK! No Racist Fascist USA!” and “Don’t give in to racist fear! Immigrants are welcome here!” The two candidates were in the city for a campaign event at the Hotel Roanoke and Conference Center.Demonstrators came from unions and worker rights organizations, including the Food and Commercial Workers, the Virginia Professional Staff Association and Fight for $15.  They were joined by members of the Plowshare Peace & Justice Center, Community Cultivators Inc., 15 Now Roanoke, Black Lives Matter and Workers World Party.The demonstration also included young children, high school and college students, and teachers protesting for the first time.  Many Roanoke residents are fed up with Trump’s anti-worker hate and racism.Trump doesn’t speak for white workers!A statement by protest organizers on their Facebook event page read: “Donald Trump and vice presidential running mate Mike Pence are the racist enemies of all poor and working people. Both candidates attack women, the LGBTQ community, immigrants, Muslims, the disabled and the Black Lives Matter movement. And they don’t speak or care for white workers either.“Trump is long known for attacking workers and their unions. Indiana Gov. Pence, like Scott Walker in Wisconsin, has waged a Jim Crow war on workers in Indiana with specific attacks on unions, eviscerating many hard-won worker protections and rights.“Both candidates promote the privatization of public education and other public services. Roanoke is a working-class, diverse city that needs union jobs and resources for our neighborhoods, not the racist anti-worker hate and division that Trump and Pence are whipping up.”Numerous participants kept protesting during Trump’s speech and confronted his supporters again when the speech was over. Then a contingent led by mostly youth and students marched from the protest site through downtown Roanoke demanding freedom, justice and equality for all poor and working people.The protesters vowed that every time Trump or Pence plan an appearance in Southwest Virginia they will be confronted. During the July 25 protests and in the days following, photos and videos taken during the protest were “liked” and shared through social media thousands of times, breaking through a virtual corporate media whiteout of the protest.The July 25 protest is the second major protest against Trump in Southwest Virginia this year. In February, hundreds of students and other community members confronted Trump and his supporters at Radford University in Radford, Va., disrupting his speech multiple times.Outside of the auditorium, they conducted picket lines with banners reading “Donald Trump: Tool of the Rich — Racist Enemy of All Workers.” Placards read “Trump Is for the Rich and Against Everyone Else” and “Trump Doesn’t Speak for White Workers.”last_img read more

Report: Justice Department Nears Settlement With Bank of America

first_img Bank of America and the Justice Department are close to completing a long-rumored and record-setting deal to resolve allegations of misconduct in the sales of mortgage-backed securities that went bad, according to a report from the Wall Street Journal.Citing “people familiar with the matter,” the Journal reported Wednesday afternoon that BofA has agreed to pay between $16 billion and $17 billion to clear itself of charges that it knowingly sold toxic securities in the run-up to the financial crisis. The allegations mostly revolve around Bank of America’s Merrill Lynch unit, which the bank acquired in 2008.According to the report, BofA will pay approximately $9 billion to the government, with the rest going toward consumer relief.Noting that the deal could still fall through, the Journal report says no announcement is likely to come this week as representatives on both sides meet to finalize the terms.If the latest rumored agreement is true, the deal would mark the largest-ever penalty in a civil settlement between the government and an institution, a record previously held by JPMorgan Chase after it agreed to a $13 billion settlement in a similar case last year.BofA and the Justice Department reportedly came to an agreement last week, only a day after a federal judge ruled the bank must pay nearly $1.3 billion over a fraud case brought on by alleged misconduct at Countrywide, another acquisition made in 2008. At the time that decision was publicized, a spokesperson for BofA said the bank plans to review the ruling and assess its options to appeal.In addition, the firm reported a legal expense of $4 billion in the second quarter, “substantially all” of which was related to mortgage matters. The case with the Justice Department stands as one of the bank’s last major legal hurdles.

The Enthusiasm Gap: Why Homeowners Aren’t Eager to Sell

first_img Tagged with: Homebuyers homesellers Housing Inventory inventory shortages Redfin  Print This Post The Enthusiasm Gap: Why Homeowners Aren’t Eager to Sell The Best Markets For Residential Property Investors 2 days ago Previous: Ocwen’s Ron Faris Announces Retirement, Glen Messina to Succeed Next: The Real-World Impact of Home Prices Subscribe Data Provider Black Knight to Acquire Top of Mind 2 days ago Demand Propels Home Prices Upward 2 days ago The latest report from Redfin shows that home sale prices in March were still on the way up—they were 9 percent higher than a year ago, closing the month at a median $297,000 nationally. But homes for sale were down across the board as well. Compared to March 2017, the number of homes on the market in the United States was down 12 percent. More telling, the number of newly listed homes fell 5.6 percent from last year, something Redfin classifies as “a sign of possible waning seller enthusiasm and ongoing tight market conditions.”Redfin Chief Economist Nela Richardson said one explanation for the dropoff in housing movement this March might have been the fact that Easter came so early.“Sellers are slow to list this year and we aren’t seeing enough new construction homes to fill the gap,” Richardson said. “If we don’t see the new listings number turn around next month or a pickup in new housing starts, inventory will be a persistent drag on sales for the remainder of the year.”If seller enthusiasm is waning, buyer demand is still strong. According to Redfin, the typical home went under contract in 43 days in March. That’s eight days faster than a year earlier and faster than any March on record. Among homes that sold last month, 24 percent sold above their list price, up from 22.3 percent last March. One in five homes that sold in March went under contract within two weeks of their debut, compared to 18.4 percent last year. The Bay Area had much higher numbers than the average, though. In San Jose, 83 percent of houses sold above list price. In San Francisco and Oakland, three-quarters of houses sold higher than listed.Seattle (for the second month in a row) and Denver were the fastest-moving markets in the country. Houses there were on the market for a median of just seven days in March. The Bay Area also saw houses close in less than two weeks.As is typically the case, prices grew most in the Bay Area. San Jose saw prices leap by 32 percent from a year ago; San Francisco almost 17 percent.But less-typical markets showed price growth as well. Allentown, Pennsylvania, saw prices climb 22 percent since last year, just 1 percent more than the prices in Detroit.  At the same time, inventory dropped in 65 of the 73 most populous metros Redfin tracked. In 48 of those metros, inventory fell more than 10 percent compared to last year. Baton Rouge; Washington, D.C.; and Allentown bucked the declining inventory trend, respectively adding 26.6 percent, 11.8 percent, and 11.4 percent to housing supply from last year.

PAINTING HISTORY: Reunion Troy commissions mural

first_img Email the author As Reunion Troy was planning a way to celebrate the final year of Alabama’s Bicentennial, it was decided there would be no better way than a mural that depicts the places and the people and visually tells the story of the City of Troy.On Wednesday, the Reunion Troy committee met to review and discuss plans for the mural that will be a feature of East Walnut Street, which is within the cultural arts area of the city. The 26×8-foot mural will be painted on the wall of the Troy Tourism and Public Relations Building, which is directly across the street from the Johnson Center for the Arts.Stephanie Baker, Reunion Troy chair, said the committee has committed weeks of research into the city’s history in an effort to decide which places and which people will best tell the story of the City of Troy from its beginning in 1843.

Possibly, people from different time periods will be shown together.

UFC head adds $25K reward to help find missing stepdaughter of MMA fighter

first_img(Elijah Blanchard) Aniah Blanchard is pictured with her father, Elijah Blanchard, in this undated photo.(MONTGOMERY, Ala.) — UFC President Dana White is upping the reward being offered for information regarding the disappearance of Aniah Haley Blanchard, the stepdaughter of mixed martial arts competitor Walt Harris.Blanchard, 19, has not been seen since the Alabama college student was caught on surveillance video visiting a convenience store last week. Earlier Wednesday, Alabama Gov. Kay Ivey issued a proclamation authorizing a $5,000 reward for information leading to an arrest and conviction of a suspect in the case. White’s offering came in the form of a Twitter video released Wednesday evening.Blanchard’s vehicle was found abandoned near an apartment complex in Montgomery last Friday. The vehicle, a black 2017 Honda CRV, had damage to the front left tire area, which is believed to have occurred between the time she was last seen and when the vehicle was found, according to the Auburn Police Division.Blanchard, a student at Southern Union State Community College in Wadley, was reported missing by her family on Oct. 24. Police said she last communicated with a friend on Oct. 23, just before midnight. The Lee County District Attorney’s Office said it is approaching the search for Blanchard as if foul play was involved.“This is a criminal investigation. Obviously, we’re approaching it as such. I think the only right way to do it is to approach it as if foul play is involved and as if there is someone or more than one person involved in this,” Lee County District Attorney Brandon Hughes said Wednesday. “We do not believe Aniah would or did essentially go missing on her own volition.”“I encourage anyone with information about the whereabouts of 19-year-old Aniah Blanchard, who was last seen Oct. 23, to please call *HP or 9-1-1,” Ivey said in a tweet Wednesday. “We continue to pray for Aniah & her family as law enforcement officials work to bring her home.”Police released a surveillance video earlier this week, showing Blanchard making a purchase at a convenience store in downtown Auburn on Oct. 23.It also announced the FBI, U.S. Marshals Service and the Department of Homeland Security were among several agencies investigating her disappearance.Blanchard’s father, Elijah Blanchard, said his daughter “would not leave” without telling anyone.“She always calls me at the end of the day to see how my day was,” Elijah Blanchard told ABC News in an exclusive interview Monday evening. “She would never not contact somebody and let them know what she’s doing.”He described his daughter as “very ambitious,” “very organized” and “fun to be around.”“If someone would see Aniah out, they would know something was wrong if she didn’t carry that beautiful smile that she always has,” he said.Harris, a UFC heavyweight fighter, shared images of his stepdaughter on his Instagram page last week, asking members of the public to come forward with information.“Please help find my baby Aniah Blanchard. She is missing [in] Auburn,” Harris, one of the top mixed martial arts contenders in the heavyweight division, told his nearly 30,000 followers. “Please help!!!! Any info message me on here or call the Auburn police … PLEASE SHARE THIS!!!!”Blanchard is described as a light-complexioned black female with brown eyes and brown hair who is 5 feet 6 inches tall and about 125 pounds. She was last seen wearing a black dress and tan duck boots with black stockings, according to police. Copyright © 2019, ABC Audio. All rights reserved.last_img read more

NY to lift Covid capacity restrictions May 19

first_img Share on FacebookShare on TwitterShare on LinkedinShare via Email Share via Shortlink Cuomo also announced today that the city’s subway system will resume 24-hour service May 17 for the first time in a year. (Getty)Last week, Mayor Bill de Blasio vowed that New York City would fully reopen by July 1, just in time for weary city residents to have a “summer of fun.” It wasn’t his call to make, but — perhaps by design — it appears that day will come much sooner.His longtime nemesis Gov. Andrew Cuomo announced today that most capacity restrictions will be lifted throughout New York state, as well as in Connecticut and New Jersey, by May 19. Most businesses — including restaurants and bars, gyms, barber shops and retailers — will be able to operate at full capacity, provided they can ensure that patrons are maintaining social distancing. The same will go for houses of worship.Indoor and outdoor venues, meanwhile, can increase the number of people allowed in — to 30 and 33 percent capacity, respectively — assuming all patrons can provide proof of vaccination. Outdoor social gatherings will now have a maximum capacity of 500 people and indoor ones will increase to 250.ADVERTISEMENTThe same rules will be in effect for New Jersey. In Connecticut, capacity restrictions had already largely been lifted as of May 1, but any remaining ones will be gone by the 19th.Last week, as Covid-19 cases declined and vaccinations increased, de Blasio said, “We are ready to bring New York City back fully on July 1, all systems go, because you’ve earned it. This is going to be the summer of New York City.”But, as usual, the governor had more to say.“I don’t want to wait that long,” said Cuomo, who has been eager to show he can govern while his sexual harassment and nursing home scandals play out.Business owners have been pressuring Cuomo for months to ease capacity restrictions throughout the city, with several lawsuits filed recently in an effort to get restaurants back at full capacity. Just last week, the governor announced that restaurants would be allowed to operate at 75 percent.Cuomo also announced today that the city’s subway system will resume 24-hour service May 17. The Metropolitan Transportation Authority has not run subways 24/7 since last May, when overnight service was disrupted in order to facilitate cleaning of the system and, unofficially, to remove homeless people. Ridership has been steadily rising in the past few months after plummeting at the start of the pandemic.“Overnight workers like waitresses, bartenders and more depend on transit to get around in the late-night hours,” Sarah Feinberg, the interim president of New York City Transit, said in a statement. “We’ve been moving them for the last year by bus and I’m thrilled that we can once again provide them with safe and efficient overnight subway service as well, as more Covid restrictions on businesses are lifted.”Contact Amy Plitt Email Address* Full Name* Andrew CuomoCommercial Real EstateCoronavirusPoliticscenter_img Share via Shortlink Message* Tagslast_img read more
