Views expressed on the companies mentioned in this article are those of the writer and therefore may differ from the official recommendations we make in our subscription services such as Share Advisor, Hidden Winners and Pro. Here at The Motley Fool we believe that considering a diverse range of insights makes us better investors. Warren Buffett is one of the most successful investors in the world. To say that when he talks, people listen, is an understatement. The billionaire philanthropist is also one of my investing role models. Here’s how I use some of his famous sayings to invest in FTSE stocks.Investing shouldn’t be complicated“The business schools reward difficult complex behaviour more than simple behaviour, but simple behaviour is more effective.”5G is here – and shares of this ‘sleeping giant’ could be a great way for you to potentially profit!According to one leading industry firm, the 5G boom could create a global industry worth US$12.3 TRILLION out of thin air…And if you click here we’ll show you something that could be key to unlocking 5G’s full potential…Warren Buffett’s strategies are all about simplifying the process to make rational decisions. Buffett makes the point you don’t have to be a genius to be a good investor, but instead there’s a lot of due diligence and hard work involved. He’s said that “there seems to be some perverse human characteristic that likes to make easy things difficult.” I believe it’s human nature to sometimes complicate often simple things. I don’t think investing in FTSE stocks is easy, but I try to remember this saying when making my own choices.High returns with low risk“Risk comes from not knowing what you are doing.”When investors have some success, they believe that this success in one area is transferable to an entirely different industry or arena. Stick to what I know and do my homework is what I take from this. Warren Buffett says we should “never invest in a business you cannot understand.” Even Warren Buffett makes mistakes. His investment vehicle recently sold all its shares in Houston-based oil producer Occidental Petroleum after an ill-fated acquisition backed by him. Since then however, he has re-entered the oil industry, buying shares in Chevron Corporation. It paid off as Buffett scored a $1.2bn gain on its shares in under 10 weeks. It seems even at 90 years old, the Sage of Omaha is still learning investment lessons.Long-term investing like Warren Buffett“Only buy something that you’d be perfectly happy to hold if the market shut down for 10 years.”The Buffett (and the Foolish) way is to invest for the long term. He believes that investing is about minimising risk to generate wealth over the long term, not generating short-term profits. One of my favourite sayings of his is “Our favourite holding period is forever.” I believe that this encapsulates the idea that investing should be about the long term. When I buy a FTSE stock I view it as a long-term buy-and-hold.How I invest in FTSE stocksI could probably write a lot more about the lessons I’ve learned from Warren Buffett and how I apply them. But the points I covered are some of the main principles I follow.I invest in FTSE stocks for the long term. I try to invest in a business or industry I understand or can learn about easily. Investing isn’t rocket science with multiple theories and complex equations. I truly believe it’s about doing my due diligence and research.Warren Buffett isn’t a huge fan of excessive diversification and his biggest winners have only come from a handful of the stocks he’s owned. The best examples that spring to mind (apart from the aforementioned Chevron) are Apple, Coca-Cola, American Express, General Motors, Mastercard and Johnson & Johnson.As for me, I like Fevertree Drinks and Tritax Big Box, two FTSE stocks I believe will continue to flourish in 2021 based on my Warren Buffett investing rules.

Nectaire Féménias of the Orthodox Church of America; the Rev. David Fines, former president of the Montreal/Ottawa conference of the United Church of Canada; Bishop Dennis Drainville of the Anglican Diocese of Quebec; Diane Andicha Picard, Guardian of the Sacred Drum Head for Andicah n’de Wendat; the Rev. Katherine Burgess, incumbent at St. Andrew’s Presbyterian Church in Quebec City; and Norman Lévesque, director of the Green Church Program.However, to emphasize the collective responsibility of churches in fighting climate change, the declaration was read by all present, and everyone was given the opportunity to sign.The reading of the declaration followed a presentation by Dr. Alan K. Betts, an atmospheric scientist based in Vermont who has been studying the effects of climate change for more than 35 years. Betts explained how the unusual weather patterns of last winter — in which parts of western North America experienced record highs while Easterners experienced an especially cold winter — were in keeping with larger changes to weather patterns consistent with the rise of C02 in the earth’s atmosphere.But Betts also spoke about questions that touched much more closely on faith, arguing that climate change was a “spiritual denial” of the facts. “Climate deniers do not want to see truth,” he said. “We are in a society where the rich are very dependent on propaganda to defend fossil fuel exploitation.”While Betts was very clear about the enormity of the threat that climate change poses, he did not suggest that there was no hope, but argued that people “united with the spirit and the science” can cause change, “because when we stand for truth, creation responds.”The conference was organized by Green Churches, an ecumenical network that began in 2006 as a project of Saint Columba House, a United Church mission in Montreal. In the nine years since it began, the network has grown to include 50 churches across Canada from Orthodox, Catholic, Anglican, United, Presbyterian, Mennonite, Evangelical and Quaker traditions.Following Betts’ presentation and the reading of the declaration, participants spent the late morning and afternoon of the one-day conference in a series of workshops, held in both English and French, focusing on practical ways in which churches could reduce their carbon footprint and energy use. One workshop, led by the Rev. Cynthia Patterson and Sarah Blair of the Diocese of Quebec, looked at the work that the Anglican Cathedral of the Holy Trinity is doing to return its grounds to their original function as gardens.Lévesque, director of the Green Church Program, said that while there were slightly fewer people in attendance than he had expected, he was impressed with the number of prominent church leaders in attendance, such as Cardinal Lacroix and Bishop Drainville.He was also struck by the participants’ passion. “The people here, the interest — it was more than interest — it was conviction,” he said, adding that it was important that participants included people with the power to change church structure.Elana Wright, who works for the Canadian Catholic Organization for Development and Peace and led a workshop on the relationship between food justice and climate justice, was likewise impressed with the level of participation.“It showed that there is a critical mass of people that want to take action and do something,” she said, “and they are following the Christian principles of respect for creation and really putting it into action and bringing it to their church leaders.”Drainville also viewed the conference as being highly important — so much so, in fact, that he delayed his flight to the House of Bishops meeting by a day in order to participate.“It is always a great opportunity to spend time with people who see the same kind of priorities,” he said, “and obviously as an Anglican, believing strongly in the Marks of Mission and particularly the fifth mark of mission [To strive to safeguard the integrity of creation, and sustain and renew the life of the earth], coming here and showing our solidarity as we respond to the needs of creation is very important.”The next Green Churches Conference is scheduled to take place in Ottawa in autumn 2016.

To fully appreciate black history, the US must let go of…

first_img Elliott Cummings Reply The unveiling of a slave trade historical marker in Montgomery, Alabama, in 2013. AP Photo/Dave Martin Black History MonthBy Bradford Vivian and first published in theconversation.comAs a nation, the U.S. is debating the meaning of Confederate symbolism and history.That debate is closely tied to how the U.S. commemorates or fails to commemorate, the full spectrum of African-American history.In my research, I explore why people choose to remember some parts of the past and not others. I have also studied how communities choose to forget portions of the past in order to overcome longstanding conflicts.Based on this work, I would argue that nostalgic versions of Confederate history inhibit our ability to memorialize African-American historical experiences and achievements as centerpieces of U.S. history.Forgetting and forging aheadA commitment to starting over and creating a new future is a deep-seated part of the U.S. experience. Thomas Paine published “Common Sense” in January 1776, as American colonists debated whether to declare independence from Great Britain. He proclaimed that a “new era of politics” and “a new method of thinking” had begun.“Common Sense” urged colonists to forget monarchical history and culture so that they could embrace a radically new historical narrative. The doctrine of American exceptionalism that Paine helped to create – the belief that the U.S. is not only different but exceptional – depends upon an ideal of renewal. It suggests that Americans are joined together in the constant creation of a new history and a new politics.Paine’s rhetoric argues that forgetting old customs and conflicts does not necessarily mean destroying the past. In fact, the verb “forget” descends from an Old Germanic construction that suggests losing one’s hold on something. Basic English definitions of the term – “to treat with inattention or disregard” or “disregard intentionally” – describe a voluntary decision to no longer grasp something, not destroy it.People today don’t literally remember the Civil War. Neither can they literally forget it. The terms “remember” and “forget” are metaphorical descriptions of different attitudes toward history.As I’ve shown in my research, sometimes communities decide that previously beloved narratives of the past have become divisive and deserve to be set aside. People often attempt to resolve conflicts rooted in history by adopting an attitude of forgetting. For example, Athenians in the fourth century B.C. restored democracy after a civil war with an act of political forgiveness. Warring parties brokered peace by swearing “not to recall wrong.” More recently, former Soviet states have removed monuments of communist leaders since the fall of the Soviet Union.Asking Confederate advocates to forget in the name of a greater good does not mean asking them to erase the past. It means inviting them to the work of truth and reconciliation and foregoing the Lost Cause – a historical mythology that insists the Confederate cause was noble and heroic. Confederate memorials symbolize a form of white supremacy that sought to violently erase the heritage of kidnapped and enslaved Africans and their descendants. They honor efforts to destroy the history of millions while celebrating a wildly distorted version of the Confederate past.Forgetting that distorted vision of history would not erase an authentic past. It might create opportunities for understanding post-Civil War history in more honest and equitable ways.Truth and reconciliation TAGSBlack History Previous articleVote for Mayor, Seat #1, and Seat #2 in The Apopka Voice’s third online election pollNext articleBuilder’s Blitz completes five houses in South Apopka in five days Denise Connell RELATED ARTICLESMORE FROM AUTHOR You have entered an incorrect email address!

This article has a photo of the MLK monument.How long till Year Zero zealots seize upon MLK’s disdain for the “problem” of homosexuality and demand his statue be torn down?Compared to MLK I’m an moral giant, right? Reply Nostalgia?? That’s our history. Thousands died. The male population of the South was decimated. It may not be personal history and it may not be recent, but people in the South and even descendants elsewhere – this is our history. We may not agree with these peoples’ politics or social views but they were Americans. They fought for many different reasons. Any man who fights and dies in honest defense of his family, community and country deserves respect. And who blames them for honoring their leaders during this period? Everyone’s so blinded by political correctness that they can’t give anyone the benefit of the doubt, they can’t question their own prejudices and stereotypes and really find out for themselves who these men were. You want to tear down monuments because you think everyone was a racist and fought to preserve slavery? Well, h*** you’ve got a lot of monuments and gravestones to bulldoze. Let’s start with the Washington and Lincoln monuments shall we? You want to burn a national flag that represented legalized slavery for decades?? You’ll have to burn the US flag too, because that’s where your logic leads. As for me, I choose to live in the present. Flags stand for who WE are, not who people of the past were. If we allow a statue to stand and our motives are not racist, then how is the statue or monument racist? In the end we are all pawns of political strategists who manipulate are emotions for votes. History will not die, no matter how many books you burn. rmb Reply February 10, 2018 at 9:56 pm JD Confederate nostalgia works against the American ethic of renewal and the desperately needed work of truth and reconciliation. Such work, as in post-apartheid South Africa, includes collective agreements to remember the past differently, resolve historical conflicts, and imagine a new future. Even Stonewall Jackson’s grandsons support proposals to remove a statue of their grandfather in Richmond, Virginia, for this purpose. They advocate for a “larger project of actively mending the racial disparities that hundreds of years of white supremacy have wrought.”Communities can pursue this objective not only by removing monuments. They can also remove barriers to understanding history in more honest and equitable ways.Select figures from the aftermath of the Civil War can help us to imagine what letting go or forgetting the past would look like. For example, in his second inaugural address, President Abraham Lincoln implored Union and Confederate states to reconcile, “with malice toward none, with charity for all.” In December 1866, Robert E. Lee himself expressed a similar sentiment. He argued that erecting Confederate memorials “would have the effect of retarding instead of accelerating” post-war recovery.Ironically, the prevalence of Confederate remembrance today suggests that many Americans have forgotten Lincoln’s and Lee’s pleas to consciously forget past disputes.Vastly unequal memoriesHistorical narratives rooted in Confederate nostalgia exert undue influence over Americans’ perceptions of national history. Distorted memories of Confederate history – depictions of benevolent slave masters and loyal slaves – hinder serious efforts to confront the brutal legacies of white supremacy.As a result, it impedes efforts to memorialize the full scope of African-American resilience in the face of persistent brutalities. Robert E. Lee, Jefferson Davis and Stonewall Jackson are household historical names, with their likenesses preserved in numerous monuments. Not so for black Americans like Benjamin Banneker, David Walker, Sojourner Truth, Ida B. Wells, Booker T. Washington and countless others.Myriad streets and public buildings are named after Confederate leaders. While no comprehensive catalog exists, some databases estimate Confederacy markers number in at least the thousands.Martin Luther King Jr. Memorial in Washington, D.C. REUTERS/Jason ReedOf course, efforts to commemorate African-American history also exist. They include the recently opened National Museum of African American History and Culture in Washington, D.C., the National Memorial for Peace and Justice in Montgomery, Alabama, and plans to replace Andrew Jackson with Harriet Tubman on the U.S. $20 bill. But those efforts are historically delayed and dramatically overshadowed.These disparities indicate how reverence for the mythic Confederate past hinders the nation from seeking a new kind of future. Pursuing the difficult work of truth and reconciliation is impossible without letting go of the Lost Cause.That work would involve sober discussions about how Confederate monuments, and the attitudes toward history that they illustrate, represent distortions of American history rather than praiseworthy representations of it. It would also require finding new ways to prioritize the teaching and commemoration of African-American history.Local governments have removed statues of Confederate generals in the dark of night. Will we also labor together, in the light of day, to discover more honest and equitable ways of understanding our history anew?Bradford Vivian (PhD, Pennsylvania State University) is an associate professor and director of undergraduate studies in the Department of Communication Arts and Sciences. His research and teaching focus on theories of rhetoric (or the art of persuasion) and public controversies over collective memories of past events.

In order to fully appreciate one group’s history, it’s necessary to purge the history of other groups. That position is one of arrogance and selective recall in addition to being historical revisionism at its worst. February 10, 2018 at 8:10 pm February 11, 2018 at 9:54 am February 11, 2018 at 9:13 am February 11, 2018 at 7:11 am Free webinar for job seekers on best interview answers, hosted by Goodwill June 11 February 12, 2018 at 4:31 pm So razing a statue to the common soldier who died and replacing it with another race doesn’t have the potential to create offense? Not because the offended are racists but because the dead are being dishonored and another race is being honored as more important. Why not simply erect African-American statues nearby?Most Southerners don’t even know what the Lost Cause is and certainly don’t hold the opinion that all slave owners were benevolent and slaves content. That is a distortion of the opposition’s position (though it was not true that every owner beat, raped and killed). For those of us who know enough to care: research by the leading scholars of the field do not show that preservation of slavery was the primary reason men thought they were fighting a war. It is possible that the distortion of history is ALSO on your side. That the majority of these men fought honorably and for a noble cause is not a fiction that was created after the war. Why? Because a majority had other reasons besides preserving slavery for participating in the war. It is recorded during the war, not afterward. The way the south was treated during Reconstruction pretty much threw “peaceful reconciliation” out the window. You know how the North and Congress tried to reconcile? By returning battle flags and erecting memorials around the turn of the century. You want peaceful reconciliation between the white and black communities? My advice: don’t destroy, build. Tip: you have yet to prove to anyone that these statues were raised for racist reasons to intimidate. I suggest you come up with some solid evidence if you want to change minds. Prove to the white community that razing Confederate memorials isn’t just about revenge and suspicions that the reason they are still standing is because the white community is still racist. Prove to whites that this simply isn’t a power play and some in the black community just want to be in control and symbolize they are dominant. Because of the rhetoric of many on the left and in the black community that exactly how this appears. You want the South to forget past disputes: I don’t think statues are about that to most. My question is are you asking the black community to forget? Because if that dispute was “forgotten” we wouldn’t be having statues removed. This is a sad article which only promotes division and false narratives. One does not have to denigrate or suppress one groups history in order to honour or promote another groups history. In fact the concept that current monuments somehow suppress African-American is untrue.Large numbers of blacks and other minorities were involed in the confederate military effort so all memorials to confederate soldiers also represent these minorities. If this fact were taught perhaps more healing would occur.There is nothing that presently is in place that prevents individuals from raising funds and erecting monuments to any individual or event they desire just as those who placed confederate monuments did. The solution is more, not less monuments.Teach facts, not emotional opinions. The war was not over slavery. Lincoln said so and so did Davis. Secession’s causes can be debated, but the actual war was not about slavery. Until facts are taught there is little chance for complete reconciliation.

Wilson of the CSA warned, “If I ever disown, repudiate, or apologize for the Cause for which Lee fought and Jackson died, let the lightening of Heaven rend me, and the scorn of all good men and true women be my portion. Sun, moon, stars, all fall on me when I cease to love the Confederacy. ‘Tis the Cause, not the fate of the Cause, that is glorious!’” “Every man should endeavor to understand the meaning of subjugation before it is too late… It means the history of this heroic struggle will be written by the enemy; that our youth will be trained by Northern schoolteachers; will learn from Northern school books their version of the war; will be impressed by the influences of history and education to regard our gallant dead as traitors, and our maimed veterans as fit objects for derision… It is said slavery is all we are fighting for, and if we give it up we give up all. Even if this were true, which we deny, slavery is not all our enemies are fighting for. It is merely the pretense to establish sectional superiority and a more centralized form of government, and to deprive us of our rights and liberties.”Maj. General Patrick R.

TCU’s plan for the future

first_imgTwitter Hunter Geisel Linkedin Hunter Geisel Hunter Geisel Facebook Facebook Is TCU’s firework obsession because of Boschini? ‘It doesn’t hurt.’ Students react to statewide texting and driving ban printThe towering cranes, construction crews, and orange barrels likely have a place on campus for years to come.At their November board meeting, TCU trustees approved a 25-year master plan that would continue the campus’s transformation.Three projects already underway will be the first steps of the plan. Construction on the proposed Interior Design and Fashion Merchandising building is expected to begin in the summer. Work on a new school of music is expected to start in the summer of 2018.Dean O. Homer Erekson of the Neeley School of Business is raising money to pay for a $75 million effort to tear down Dan Rogers Hall and build a replacement hall connecting Tandy and Smith Halls.“We’re trying to be the best university we can be,” said Todd Waldvogel, associate vice chancellor for facilities. “We’re trying to put our resources, notably in this particular place and acreage and square footage to the highest and best use of the university and we think we’re doing a good job.”In August, Waldvogel and his team presented the master plan’s vision to the building and grounds committee of the Board of Trustees.From then and through November, Waldvogel told the “world” of his team’s plans.“We went to the faculty senate, staff assembly; we had town hall meetings, we met with city planners, we met with city council folk, we even went to neighborhood meetings,” Waldvogel said.In the previous plan, the school of music would have been located on the Sandage parking lot, over by the Methodist church on Berry Street. When Waldvogel looked at phasing construction and connectivity with the rest of the college of fine arts, he said the logistics were overwhelming and it would be nice to have a marquee facility.Waldvogel said with these buildings near each other and the Bob Schieffer College of Communication, it will help better integrate the creative schools.“I think there is neat synergy with that and I think that the deans of fine arts and communications enjoy that opportunity now that we can develop into a personality that’s bigger than one particular program,” Waldvogel said.TCU is also raising money to build an addition on the Dee J. Kelly Alumni & Visitors Center.There are also plans to start building two more residence halls similar to Hays Hall in summer 2018, Waldvogel said.“First of all, we have to fulfill our housing obligations of our freshmen and sophomores,” Waldvogel said. “And then, we need to look for a healthy mix of upperclassmen and those two residence halls should make us healthy with freshmen and sophomores and then the Greek [housing] adds some capacity.”With the Greek Village being finished by 2019, the new housing will also have a large lawn space that will be reminiscent to the Campus Commons.Waldvogel said the master will be published electronically by April with a “big purple bow.”“The general plan will be written and frankly, we’re going to try and publish in a format that is specifically on the web,” Waldvogel said. “So, we want to make it available electronically.”Waldvogel said students can contact faculty and staff, along with campus leadership to get involved with the committees a part of each project.He also said that students should be active and aware of what going on with construction so that they can be appreciative of all of the work put into campus, understanding where this university was when you arrived and how it will be for future generations.“I think the ones that have been and have done so have actually appreciated it, you get to see the fruits of your labor,” Waldvogel said. “So, just keep an eye open for any opportunities that pop up in all kinds of places.” Linkedin Hunter Geisel Student organization hosts haunted house for Halloween TCU’s diversity falls middle of the road compared to peer institutions TCU hangout closes its doors, college ministry considers buying property Previous articleStudents help elders “Cycle Without Age”Next articleCultural differences affect students studying in US Hunter Geisel RELATED ARTICLESMORE FROM AUTHOR + posts SGA holds student memorial to honor lives of four students ReddIt ReddIt Twitter Mark Johnson: the Board of Trustees’ chairman and his vision for TCU Hunter Geisel read more

The Huntington Acquires Two Paintings by Important African American Artists

The Huntington Library, Art Collections, and Botanical Gardens. © 1944 The Charles White Archives.The Huntington Library, Art Collections, and Botanical Gardens continues to enrich its African American art holdings with the receipt of two paintings, one by Robert S. Duncanson (1821–1872) and the other by Charles White (1918–1979). Duncanson’s Landscape with Ruin (ca. 1853) is now on view in the Virginia Steele Scott Galleries of American Art; White’s Soldier (1944) will go on view there when expanded gallery space opens on Saturday, July 19. The paintings are gifts from California-based collectors Sandra and Bram Dijkstra.Landscape with Ruin was made by Duncanson (who was one of very few African American artists who enjoyed a successful career in the 19th century) while on his first trip to Europe, just as his talents as a landscape painter began to peak. Soldier is White’s powerful portrait of a World War II sergeant. White is known for socially charged figurative paintings and murals made from the time of the Great Depression through the Civil Rights era. Both men are considered among the most important African American painters of their eras.“The Dijkstras are true connoisseurs of American art, and, not surprisingly, their gifts to The Huntington are superb,” said Kevin Salatino, Hannah and Russel Kully Director of the Art Collections at The Huntington. “The Duncanson landscape is a dramatically composed, moody piece that gives important breadth to our Hudson River school collection. Soldier will mesmerize visitors with its expressionist power and heartbreaking symbolism. Strengthening our representation of works by African American artists has been a longstanding goal, so these gifts also demonstrate the Dijkstras’ keen vision and understanding of the institution. We are deeply grateful.”Landscape with Ruin (ca. 1853) by Robert S. DuncansonCincinnati-based Duncanson was already a working portraitist and had produced some successful landscape commissions when, in 1853, he left for his first visit to Europe; it wasn’t until he began painting there that his career really took off. Created during that European tour, Landscape with Ruin depicts fantastic craggy cliffs, wind-twisted trees, and a dilapidated castle. The dramatic scene with its shadowy foreground opens onto rolling mountains bathed in dusky, rosy light.“This landscape is almost certainly imaginary, an amalgam of scenes that Duncanson experienced during his travels, and that’s what makes it so magical,” said Jessica Todd Smith, Virginia Steele Scott Chief Curator of American Art at The Huntington. “It has its own personality, but also shares traits with other American landscapes from the period already in the collections—for example the monumental Chimborazo by Frederic Edwin Church, inspired by the artist’s trips to South America, and Rocky Landscape painted by John Frederick Kensett around the same time that Duncanson made Landscape with Ruin. Together these paintings say a great deal about how mid-19th-century landscapes were designed to transport their viewers to romantic, dramatic versions of the natural world.”Duncanson was supported by Abolitionist patrons in the United States, but with the onset of the Civil War he moved to Canada and then England and became even more widely acclaimed while in exile. The London Art Journal wrote in 1866 that “Mr. Duncanson has established high fame in the United States and Canada.”Soldier (1944) by Charles WhiteCharles White was born in Chicago and moved to Los Angeles in 1956, teaching at the Otis Art Institute from 1965 until his death in 1979. He is probably best known for his paintings and drawings that focus on social issues and African American subjects.“From the man’s massive, almost machine-like hands to his sadly expressive face, Soldier combines modern and traditional techniques to convey strength, fortitude, and anguish,” said Smith. “It shows a soldier in a desert, which seems to represent the agonizing isolation that war and racism can cause.”White probably drew on his own experience for the painting. When drafted for military service in early 1944, he assumed he would be contributing to the fight against the Nazi regime in Europe, but instead learned a disheartening lesson of American racism when he found his African American troop assigned to brute labor on the home front—digging out mud caused by massive flooding of the Mississippi River. The experience gave him tuberculosis, a disease that dogged him for the rest of his life.Bram Dijkstra, cultural historian and retired professor at the University of California, San Diego, said of the gift, “I’ve long thought highly of The Huntington, where different fields of the humanities intersect. Sandy and I are so pleased to be seeing our paintings finding a home on the walls of a museum we have admired and enjoyed for years.”About The HuntingtonThe Huntington Library, Art Collections, and Botanical Gardens is a collections-based research and educational institution serving scholars and the general public.

However, Unison, a homeownership investment firm, maintains there are pockets of affordability in every major metro market. A combination of factors is seemingly putting homeownership out of reach for many Americans. Not only are home prices rising, but student debt and climbing rents are also taking a toll on potential down payment savings for many. However, the dream of homeownership, at least, is alive and well, according to Unison, which cites Ellie Mae data stating that 91 percent of millennials intend to own a home one day. Unison compared home price and home income data across major metros to determine the salary necessary to purchase a median-priced home, and the number of years it would take to save for a down payment on a median-priced home with a median-priced salary. Not only did Unison look at metro areas as a whole, it also zeroed in on city-level data to determine the most affordable areas in major metros. The least affordable metro in the nation, according to Unison’s data, is San Francisco-Oakland-Hayward, where residents need to earn $231,216 to purchase a median-priced home with a 10 percent down payment. At the median salary, it would take a San Francisco metro resident 20 years to save for a 10 percent down payment on a median-priced home. The second- and third-least affordable metros were Los Angeles-Long Beach-Anaheim and San Diego-Carlsbad, where salaries of $157,728 and $139,130, respectively, put a median-priced home within reach. In the Los Angeles metro, it would take 19 years for a resident earning the median salary to save enough for a 10 percent down payment on a median-priced home. In the San Diego metro, residents would need to save for 16 years to put 10 percent down on a median-priced home in the market. Homebuyers fare much better in Detroit-Warren-Dearborn, where they need to earn a salary of $35,909 to purchase a median-priced home with a 10-percent down payment. Following on the list of most affordable markets are Kansas City, Missouri, where the required salary is $40,869; and Tampa-St. Petersburg-Clearwater, Florida, where residents need to earn $43,978. In the Detroit and Kansas City metros, it would take residents earning the median salary just five years to save for a 10 percent down payment on a median-priced home. In the Tampa metro, it would take about seven years. While Dallas, Texas, ranked a little lower for affordability, it would take median-income residents only six years to save for a down payment on a home in their market. However, “While home prices overall have increased, there remain neighborhoods in every metro area that are relatively affordable and every metro area offers solid housing options for almost all types of home buyers,” according to Benjamin Feldman, Director of Content at Unison, with the release of Unison’s 2018 Home Affordability Report. In fact, the entire San Francisco Bay area has experienced “a dizzying rise in home prices,” and even the “potentially affordable neighborhoods” in the area have median home values above seven figures. “If one city has embodied the staggering increase of California home prices this decade, it’s San Francisco,” Unison said in its report. On the other hand, in the Dallas metro a salary of $52,000 is necessary to purchase a median-priced home with a 10 percent down payment, but in Dallas city proper, the salary necessary drops to about $49,000. In already affordable Kansas City, the salary required to purchase a median-priced home drops from $40,869 for the metro area down to just $29,036 in Kansas City proper.

Justice V. Ramasubramanian observed (i) that the issue of jurisdiction of a court to try an “offence” or “offender” as well as the issue of territorial jurisdiction, depend upon facts established through evidence (ii) that if the issue is one of territorial jurisdiction, the same has to be decided with respect to the various rules enunciated in sections 177 to 184 of the Code and (iii) that these questions may have to be raised before the court trying the offence and such court is bound to consider the same.The court observed thus while dismissing the petition of an accused seeking transfer of three criminal cases, all pending on the file of the Court of the Additional Judicial Magistrate, Gurugram, Haryana, to any competent Court in New Delhi. The accused had raised two grounds namely (i) lack of territorial jurisdiction and (ii) apprehension of bias (the second ground was not pressed). Difference between the question of jurisdiction raised in civil and criminal casesWhile considering these contentions, the court noted the main difference between the question of jurisdiction raised in civil cases and the question of jurisdiction arising in criminal cases.”While the question of territorial jurisdiction in civil cases, revolves mainly around (i) cause of action; or (ii) location of the subject matter of the suit or (iii) the residence of the defendant etc., according as the case may be, the question of territorial jurisdiction in criminal Cases revolves around (i) place of commission of the offence or (ii) place where the consequence of an act, both of which constitute an offence, ensues or (iii) place where the accused was found or (iv) place where the victim was found or (v) place where the property in respect of which the offence was committed, was found or (vi) place where the property forming the subject matter of an offence was required to be returned or accounted for, etc., according as the case may be. While jurisdiction of a civil court is determined by (i) territorial and (ii) pecuniary limits, the jurisdiction of a criminal court is determined by (i) the offence and/or (ii) the offender.(i) The first is that the stage at which an objection as to jurisdiction, territorial or pecuniary, can be raised, is regulated in civil proceedings by Section 21 of the Code of Civil Procedure, 1908. There is no provision in the Criminal Procedure Code akin to Section 21 of the Code of Civil Procedure. (ii) The second is that in civil proceedings, a plaint can be returned, under Order VII, Rule 10, CPC, to be presented to the proper court, at any stage of the proceedings. But in criminal proceedings, a limited power is available to a Magistrate under section 201 of the Code, to return a complaint. The power is limited in the sense (a) that it is available before taking cognizance, as section 201 uses the words “Magistrate who is not competent to take cognizance” and (b) that the power is limited only to complaints, as the word “complaint”, as defined by section 2(d), does not include a “police report”.”In the judgment, the court also summarized the principles laid down in Sections 177 to 184 of the Code (contained in Chapter XIII) regarding the jurisdiction of criminal Courts in inquiries and trials.The words “tries an offence” are more appropriate than the words “tries an offender” in section 461 (l). The judge observed that cursory reading of Section 461(l) and Section 462 gives an impression that there is some incongruity. Under Clause (l) of Section 461 if a Magistrate not being empowered by law to try an offender, wrongly tries him, his proceedings shall be void. But Section 462, which saves the proceedings that had taken place in a wrong sessions division or district or local area. Referring to some precedents which dealt with a similar provision under the old CrPC, the court said:”It is possible to take a view that the words “tries an offence” are more appropriate than the words “tries an offender” in section 461 (l). This is because, lack of jurisdiction to try an offence cannot be cured by section 462 and hence section 461, logically, could have included the trial of an offence by a Magistrate, not empowered by law to do so, as one of the several items which make the proceedings void. In contrast, the trial of an offender by a court which does not have territorial jurisdiction, can be saved because of section 462, provided there is no other bar for the court to try the said offender (such as in section 27). But Section 461 (l) makes the 25 proceedings of a Magistrate void, if he tried an offender, when not empowered by law to do.”Referring to various other provisions, the court, while dismissing the Transfer Petition, observed:”But be that as it may, the upshot of the above discussion is (i) that the issue of jurisdiction of a court to try an “offence” or “offender” as well as the issue of territorial jurisdiction, depend upon facts established through evidence (ii) that if the issue is one of territorial jurisdiction, the same has to be decided with respect to the various rules enunciated in sections 177 to 184 of the Code and (iii) that these questions may have to be raised before the court trying the offence and such court is bound to consider the same.””As seen from the pleadings, the type of jurisdictional issue, raised in the cases on hand, is one of territorial jurisdiction, atleast as of now. The answer to this depends upon facts to be established by evidence. The facts to be established by evidence, may relate either to the place of commission of the offence or to other things dealt with by Sections 177 to 184 of the Code. In such circumstances, this Court cannot order transfer, on the ground of lack of territorial jurisdiction, even before evidence is marshaled.”Case no.: TRANSFER PETITION (CRL.)
