Esto significa que esa región se regirá por las leyes islámicas que en muchos casos lleva a la pena de muerte para los que no se conviertan a la fe mahometana.

Share Save Demand Propels Home Prices Upward 2 days agocenter_img More than any other age group, millennials are feeling the one-two punch of tight inventory and consistently climbing housing prices. Realtor.com, in fact, calls the current state of the market  “the toughest home buying season in history” in a new look on which metros are the hardest for millennials to buy into.“Millennials want to buy, but record-low inventory is making it extremely difficult,” said Danielle Hale, Chief Economist for Realtor.com. “Our analysis shows millennials are facing challenges in both established markets such as San Jose and Seattle, as well as more recently popular areas like Omaha and Salt Lake City.”Minneapolis is in the top five too. According to the report, homes in these five cities are increasingly out of reach for millennial buyers, despite that this group of buyers is flocking to them for their strong economies and high-paying jobs. “As a result, millennials make up a higher share of the population, at 14.6 percent, compared to 13.4 percent for the U.S.,” the report stated. “Household income among 25- to 34 year-olds in these five locations is also significantly higher, at roughly $79,000, compared to the U.S. median of $59,800. And millennials are definitely interested in buying. Realtor.com said that in the first quarter, millennials accounted for 25 percent of views, higher than any other age group. But the economic hopes for San Jose, Seattle, Salt Lake City, Omaha, and Minneapolis are meeting with the economic realities of living there. While the median U.S. home price is $280,000, the median price in San Jose is $1.24 million. The report stated that the Bay Area is “replete with young students and scholars” chasing tech salaries—the average millennial salary in San Jose is $102,000 a year—at companies like Google and Apple. The competition for houses, therefore, is intense, and non-tech workers are increasingly getting shoved to the outskirts of the city.The same story is occurring in the other four cities, just with different numbers. Millennials average $78,300 a year in Seattle, where the median home price is $533,000; they average about $68,000 a year in Salt Lake City, where the median home is almost $400,000; $73,600 a year in Minneapolis, where the median house can cost $283,000; and $63,500 a year in Omaha, where the median home price is the same as in Minneapolis.All that combines with especially low inventory. Nationally, inventory is 35 percent lower than the spring of 2012, the report found. Compared to this time last year, active listings in these five metros remain 8 percent lower, the age of inventory is 7 percent lower, and list prices are 8 percent higher. “Supply is nearly three times lower than the rest of the country, at 5.7 listings versus 16.1 listings per 1,000 households,”: the report stated. “Additionally, listings in these areas are scarcer and selling faster for more money. In these five metros, active listings are 9 percent lower, the age of inventory is 13 percent lower, and list prices are 14 percent higher from a year ago.” Tagged with: California Economy Homes HOUSING Jobs Listings Living Median Price Millennials Minneapolis Omaha Realtor.com salaries salt lake city san jose seattle Previous: How Many Homeowners Plan on Remaining in Their Homes?

A bench comprised of Chief Justice SA Bobde, Justice Subhash Reddy and Justice BR Gavai said that the matter involves “substantial questions of law” that should be considered by Bench of five Judges. “It is clear from the language of Article 145(3) of the Constitution and Order XXXVIII Rule 1(1) of the Supreme Court Rules, 2013, the matters which involve substantial questions of law as to interpretation of constitutional provisions they are required to be heard a Bench of five Judges,” the bench observed. Article 145(3) of the Constitution stipulates that the minimum number of Judges who are to sit for the purpose of deciding any case involving a substantial question of law as to the interpretation of this Constitution or for the purpose of hearing any reference under Article 143 shall be five. Similarly, Order XXXVIII Rule 1(1) of the SC Rules provides: Every petition under article 32 of the Constitution shall be heard by a Division Court of not less than five Judges provided that a petition which does not raise a substantial question of law as to the interpretation of the Constitution may be heard and decided by a Division Court of less than five Judges. In light of the above provisions, the Court noted that the Constitutional challenge needs to be examined by a larger bench as it involves interpretation on the touchstone of equality and further it is to be ascertained whether the Government can bypass the 50% ceiling cap in the matters of reservation, in special circumstances. “As such, we are of the view that such questions do constitute substantial questions of law to be considered by a Bench of five Judges,” it thus held. The Petitioners had pleaded that a backward class cannot be determined only and exclusively with reference to economic criterion. Social backwardness is the cause and not the consequence of either of their economic or educational backwardness, they had submitted. Further, it was their case that the impugned Amendment violates the rule of 50% quota for affirmative action and reservation as enunciated by the Top Court in Indra Sawnhey & Ors. v. Union of India & Ors., 1992 Supp (3) SCC 217. It was contended that the Amendment Act dilutes the basic structure of Constitution and it ought to be tested by applying the tests of ‘width’ and ‘identity’ of equality provisions, and therefore the matter should be heard by a Constitution Bench. Reliance was placed on M. Nagaraj & Ors. v. Union of India & Ors., (2006) 8 SCC 212. Based on these submissions, the bench proceeded to examine whether the question raised in the writ petitions will involve a substantial question of law or not. It observed, “It is the case of the petitioners, that the very amendments run contrary to the constitutional scheme, and no segment of available seats/posts can be reserved, only on the basis of economic criterion. As such, we are of the view that such questions do constitute substantial questions of law to be considered by a Bench of five Judges.” The Court added, “Whether the impugned Amendment Act violates etc. basic structure of the Constitution, by applying the tests of ‘width’ and ‘identity’ with reference to equality provisions of the Constitution, is a matter which constitutes substantial question of law…” Further, on the plea of ceiling of 50% for affirmative action the Court said, “It is the case of the respondent-Union of India that though ordinarily 50% is the rule but same will not prevent to amend the Constitution itself in view of the existing special circumstances to uplift the members of the society belonging to economically weaker sections. Even such questions also constitute as substantial questions of law to be examined by a Bench of five Judges…” The matter has therefore been placed before the CJI for constitution of a five-Judge bench. Inter alia, the Court has also allowed the transfer applications filed by the Union of India, seeking transfer of all similar challenge to the impugned Amendment Act pending before various high courts, to the Supreme Court. This is to avoid conflicting findings by different high courts and prevent multiplicity of proceedings. Know the Law In the case of M. Nagraj (supra), a Constitution Bench of five Judges had held that in the matter of application of the principle of basic structure, twin tests have to be satisfied, namely, the ‘width test’ and the test of ‘identity’. The ‘width test’ examines the boundaries of the amending power and checks whether the amendments obliterate any constitutional requirement, such as the 50% ceiling for reservations, the concept of creamy layer, the backwardness and inadequacy of representation, and the overall administrative efficiency. The ‘identity test’ on the other hand, examines whether the amendment has altered the identity of the Constitution beyond recognition.

Stormy weather patterns expected for the holiday week

first_imgABC News (NEW YORK) — The weather pattern remains unsettled through the week, we are watching several systems that will have impacts on holiday travel from coast to coast.This morning, the northeast is feeling the impacts of the storm that moved through the Midwest and south yesterday.Behind the storm it’s cold enough that the backside of the precipitation is turning to snow – bringing up to 3 inches of snow to Indiana and locally 1 to 2 inches across Ohio yesterday.As the storm has moved into the northeast, precipitation is rain along the coast, but an icy mix just inland and snow for parts of the interior Northeast and New England.Winter weather advisories are in effect today from Pennsylvania to Maine for that frozen precipitation and a few inches of snow.In New Hampshire and Maine a winter storm warning is in place for up to 7 inches of snow through the night.The storm will slowly make its way through the northeast and New England throughout the day, ending mid-afternoon for New York and this evening for Boston.Monday night, a system will slide into the Rockies and eventually make its way to the Midwest and Northeast for the holiday week.Winter storm watches and a few winter storm warnings have been posted for parts of Utah, Colorado, Wyoming, Nebraska and Kansas.Snow will begin in the Rockies and get to Denver by Monday evening. Snow will be significant in the mountains and several inches could fall in the city itself.This system will move out of the Rockies and into the plains and Midwest Tuesday into Wednesday morning bringing a large swath of snow from Colorado to Wisconsin.Rain will also accompany this storm from eastern Texas to Michigan.As this storm moves into the northeast on Wednesday it will be mostly rain.Rain will turn to snow along the backside of the system with gusty winds around the Great Lakes and into interior New England.While one storm moves from the Rockies to the Northeast, we’ll also be watching another significant storm move into the west that is expected to have major impacts on travel.Tuesday, rain and snow will begin in northern California and spread south reaching San Francisco by Tuesday night and Los Angeles by Wednesday morning.Winter storm watches have already been issued for the Sierra and the National Weather Service is saying travel may be impossible as snow levels drop which could lead to numerous road closures Wednesday into Thursday.Several feet is forecast to snow in the mountains. In the lower elevations and along the coast, it will be rain with the possibility of totals reaching 5 inches.Flash flooding could be a concern, especially over the recent burn scars.The stormy pattern continues into the holiday itself with rain and snow across the west and a new batch of rain from Texas to Missouri.Snow will be on the northern side across parts of the Midwest.The northeast will dry out after Wednesday’s storm moves through and conditions will be dry all along the east coast.Copyright © 2019, ABC Radio.

Coronavirus updates: Trump claims vaccine coming ‘long before the end of the year’

first_imgiStock/koto_fejaBy: JON HAWORTH, ABC News (NEW YORK) — A novel coronavirus pandemic has now killed more than 530,000 people worldwide.More than 11.2 million people across the globe have been diagnosed with COVID-19, the disease caused by the new respiratory virus, according to data compiled by the Center for Systems Science and Engineering at Johns Hopkins University. The actual numbers are believed to be much higher due to testing shortages, many unreported cases and suspicions that some governments are hiding the scope of their nations’ outbreaks.The United States is the worst-affected country in the world, with more than 2.8 million diagnosed cases and at least 129,676 deaths.Latest:– Fort Worth bar faces 30-day shutdown after July 4th protest party– Trump claims a coronavirus vaccine coming ‘long before the end of the year’– WHO reports highest single-day case total worldwide– Coronavirus death toll crosses 525,000 worldwideHere’s how the news is developing today. All times Eastern.2:08 a.m.: Fort Worth bar faces 30-day shutdown after July 4th protest partyThe Rail Club Live in Fort Worth, Texas, now faces a 30-day shutdown after hosting a “Tea Party Protest” on Saturday evening which defied state orders designed to counteract the state’s soaring COVID-19 numbers, according to ABC News’ Dallas affiliate WFAA-TV.Owner Chris Polone made good on a promise made earlier in the week to host a protest party Saturday night at the venue.Masks were required at the door and guests were advised to maintain social distancing and wash their hands regularly. Hand sanitizer was also made available by the staff.The opening of the bar was a direct violation of executive order Governor Greg Abbott signed over a week ago which temporarily closed businesses that earn 51% of their sales from alcohol.Abbott said in an interview with WFAA-TV on June 26, that delaying the opening of bars is the one thing he would have done differently in his reopening plan.“Bars are one of those types of settings that are not made for a pandemic. Bars invites people to gather together, to drink and to have conversations and things like that. And that is the opposite of the type of practices that are needed to slow the spread of the coronavirus,” he said.Owner Chris Polone streamed the beginning of the event on Facebook live but just minutes after his protest began Saturday, enforcement officers arrived, informing Polone he could stay open, but would lose his license for 30 days. He chose to remain open.A post on the venue’s Facebook page argued the shutdown was unconstitutional because the venue didn’t charge admission or “sell” alcohol Saturday.The post said the state shut down a peaceful protest on Saturday, not a business.The protest, however, did not appear to be shut down, as it was allowed to continue after a visit from authorities.12:55 a.m.: Trump claims there will be a coronavirus vaccine ‘long before the end of the year’President Donald Trump made remarks on Saturday evening at the second annual Salute to America July 4th event held in Washington, D.C. and claimed that a therapeutic and/or vaccine will be around “long before the end of the year.”“I want to send our thanks to the scientists and researchers around the country and even around the world who are at the forefront of our historic effort to rapidly develop and deliver life-saving treatments and ultimately a vaccine.,” Trump said. “We are unleashing our nation’s scientific brilliance and we’ll likely have a therapeutic and/or vaccine solution long before the end of the year.”Trump also said that his administration has tested more than 40 million people around the country.“We got hit by the virus that came from China,” Trump began. “And we’ve made a lot of progress, our strategy is moving along well. It goes out in one area and rears back its ugly face in another area. But we’ve learned a lot. We’ve learned how to put out the flame. We’ve made ventilators where there were none, by tens of thousands, to the point that we have far more than we need, and we’re now distributing them to many foreign countries as a gesture of good will. Likewise, testing — there were no tests for a new virus. But now we have tested almost 40 million people.”Said Trump: “By so doing, we show cases, 99% of which are totally harmless, results that no other country can show because no other country is testing that we have, not in terms of the numbers or in terms of the quality. And now just like everything else, we have become the manufacturer and record for ventilators. We have the most finest testing anywhere in the world and we are producing gown and masks and surgical equipment in our country we’re heretofore it was almost exclusively land in lands in China ironically where this virus and others came from. China secrecy deceptions and coverup allowed it to spread all over the world. 189 countries, and China must be held fully accountable.”6:57 p.m.: 1st LAPD employee dies of COVIDThe Los Angeles Police Department has announced the first of its employees to die from coronavirus.Senior detention officer Erica McAdoo died on Friday, according to the department.There are currently 287 department employees to either test positive or be exposed to someone who tested positive and are in isolation.While the LAPD, the third-largest police force in the U.S., has only seen one death, the largest in the country, the New York Police Department, has lost 46 employees to COVID.ABC News’ Ahmad Hemingway and Eric Alvarez contributed to this report.Copyright © 2020, ABC Audio.

Health and Safety Commissioner Dr Mike McKiernan told delegates that theHSC’s occupational health strategy will have clear targets to record ill-healthamong workers and the general public. “It will help people who have been made ill through work to get back towork and will improve opportunities for people who are currently out of work toget back into employment,” he said. It will dovetail the Government’s changes to health and safety due to bepublished this month, which is also expected to set clear targets. (See News,p5) Previously unpublished research carried out by OH advisers which reviewsprovision in small- and medium-sized enterprises will be published alongsidethe HSC strategy. “Fatal accidents in the UK are a quarter of what they were when theHealth and Safety at Work Act came into being 25 years ago. Britain has one ofthe best health and safety records in the world,” said McKiernan. “But we cannot be complacent.

Actors plan to make a scene over royalties

Equity, the actors’ union, met with producers last week to call for UKactors to be paid royalties for appearing in DVDs, videos and films. Equity spokesman Martin Brown said, “British performers don’t get apercentage of the profits for appearing in videos or films, unlike their UScounterparts. “In the UK, actors are paid a flat fee in advance for televisionbroadcasts of films, for videos and DVD sales.” Brown told Personnel Today that Equity is waiting to see what employers willcome up with in terms of payment. He said, “If the talks break down, thecouncil will have to review what action to take. “We are telling members not to sign a new contract if talks with thefilm producers break down.” www.equity.org.uk Previous Article Next Article Actors plan to make a scene over royaltiesOn 19 Jun 2001 in Personnel Today Related posts:No related photos.last_img read more
