In Virginia Beach, 38.1 percent of for-sale houses fall into the affordable category. Memphis marches in next at 36.3 percent, Indianapolis stakes out position No. 3 at 26 percent, and Louisville, Kentucky, nets the fourth most-affordable post with 25.3 percent of marketed abodes there at prices that are viable for vets, Redfin says.Sunny news aside, the study also uncovered a sobering statistic. Of the 600,000-plus residential properties currently listed for sale in the nation’s most populated metropolitan areas, a mere 8.9 percent are affordable for someone earning the local median veteran income. That’s down from 27.4 percent in 2012, the company reports. Since then, house prices have swelled by 55.3 percent in those metros. Veterans’ median incomes, by stark contrast, have grown by a scant 1.6 percent from 2012 to 2016. All of the analyzed markets posted a drop in their share of listings affordable to veterans in the past six years, Redfin notes.By the way, the least affordable market on Redfin’s list: San Jose, California, followed by Los Angeles, San Francisco, Denver, and Phoenix.As for female veterans, the housing situation is even more challenging for them, with just 6.2 percent of currently listed residences across the 45 metros selling at prices they can afford, compared to 9.1 percent for male vets.Historically, the affordability of VA loans has been a primary reason why the homeownership rate among vets has been higher than for the general populace, says Redfin Chief Economist Nela Richardson. That trend, however, might be doing an about-face, she notes.  “Homeownership among active-duty military declined significantly during the housing crisis and remains at historic lows. Veteran homebuyers are battling affordability as the fast pace, high prices, and low inventory in today’s market make it hard to compete with all-cash buyers,” Richardson said. “U.S. housing policy should continue to ensure that the people who serve our country also have the opportunity to invest in our country through homeownership.” in Daily Dose, Featured, Journal, Market Studies, News Servicers Navigate the Post-Pandemic World 2 days ago The Week Ahead: Nearing the Forbearance Exit 2 days ago Subscribelast_img read more

Ohio Crop Progress: Scattered rains change things up

first_imgShare Facebook Twitter Google + LinkedIn Pinterest Scattered rains helped some corn and soybean fields last week, according to Cheryl Turner, State Statistician, USDA NASS, Ohio Field Office. There were 5.7 days suitable for fieldwork during the week ending August 18. Fields that received scattered rains last week were helped while fields not receiving any rain continued to suffer. Rainfall was sporadic and scattered even within counties with some areas of a county receiving an inch or more of rain while other areas in the same county received no precipitation. Overall, State level topsoil and subsoil conditions improved, though this improvement was not experienced evenly across Ohio. Crop conditions continued to deteriorate and remained in much poorer shape than 2018. Much of the corn in the State was pollinating or just past pollination and growers not receiving any precipitation, either naturally or through irrigation, were concerned about grain fill. The same concerns existed for soybeans as pod fill began in over half of Ohio fields. Growers continued to hope for a later than normal killing frost this fall. Conditions last week were generally favorable for fieldwork. Growers kept busy applying herbicides and fungicides, hauling manure, harvesting hay, tilling fields, and planting cover crops.Click here to read the full report.last_img read more

CloudCamp at OSCON: 5 Topics We’d Like to Discuss

first_imgalex williams We are thinking of how to get the most out of CloudCamp at OSCON on Monday night as the discussions will be exclusively about open-source and the cloud.So we decided why not write down some topics that we’d like to explore. These are in no particular order but just generally what we are thinking about. A lot of these questions come from trends and topics of discussion we are seeing on the Web.Let’s get started:The BasicsA simple discussion on the different components of the open cloud. Questions: What is the anatomy of the open cloud? What are its components at the node and system infrastructure level? What are the dynamics of the current market that is affecting its overall structure? On Azure and Proprietary SystemsA general discussion to explore Windows Azure’s significance and how other proprietary systems are affecting the direction of cloud computing.Open-Source Database Explosion!According to Kin Lane, a boom in open-source database offerings is evident in looking at the exhibitor list at OSCON. What’s happening is a disruptive change that the database world has not seen in the past 20 years. What are the dynamics of this trend? Interoperability: Will It Ever Happen?Interoperability between service providers can help avoid vendor lock-in. But will interoperability ever happen? Are there any brewing open source standards so data can be easily moved between services? Are standards needed?On Open-Source SaaSSaaS services are proliferating. What are the emerging principles of open-source SaaS environments? What will open-source SaaS services look like in the years ahead?That’s a start. There are any number of discussions to be had at an event like CloudCamp.I am the local organizer for CloudCamp Portland. Hope you can make it if you are in town. CloudCamp Portland will start on Monday at 7 pm in the Oregon Convention Center. It is free to attend.

Chris Carson Shows Value in Win over Kansas

Because of our subscribers, we’ve been able to improve our work and provide the best OSU news and community anywhere online. Help us keep that up. After missing four consecutive games from a hand injury, senior tailback Chris Carson returned to the gridiron with a vengeance Saturday without missing a step.Oklahoma State clearly has their showcase tailback in true freshman Justice Hill – who Carson called the “lead man” on Saturday.But with Oklahoma State’s uptempo, high-power offense, Hill can’t shoulder the load by himself. At least he shouldn’t do it all by himself as a true freshman. They need him fresh down the stretch, thus the value of Chris Carson increases, and his return comes at a perfect time as OSU heads down the stretch of the season.“When a guy’s been out for a significant period of time, like Chris has, you gotta make sure you ease right back into it” offensive coordinator Mike Yurcich said of Carson after the game.On just 8 carries in getting him back in the swing, Carson had 59 yards on the ground and 2 touchdowns, an impressive 7.4 yards per carry that matched Hill’s YPC, although Hill toted it 22 times. He also added a receiving touchdown and was the teams second leading receiver with 27 yards through the air.Carson and Hill are two totally separate running backs, so it’s unfair to compare them. Hill is the explosive, shifty runner. Carson is a more polished pass blocker who has the size to push for tough yardage, as evidenced on Saturday with his red zone appearances that netted him 3 touchdowns, and is an equally talented receiver out of the backfield.After missing the last four games due to injury — Chris Carson ( @chriscarson29) bounced back with three touchdowns in #OKState‘s win. pic.twitter.com/rBgw9oDMDY— Nate Feken (@TheGreat_Nate) October 23, 2016Chris Carson not only looked fresh in his first game back, but appeared to hit holes with more confidence, and had overall a better vision as a runner than he has previously. In a run in the red zone yesterday, he ran into a wall, but instead of pushing ahead, he reversed field to find a hole and burst through it for six:It’s clear that the backfield is more productive with Hill leading the charge, and Carson proved his worth to the group on Saturday and returned to form like we’ve come to know him:Chris Carson high jump!! https://t.co/DwB84MRbUf— Pistols Firing (@pistolsguys) October 22, 2016With the running game seemingly hitting its stride, Carson will be in a new role playing backup to a true freshman. But it seems his new role is one that could prove to be very valuable for OSU in the home stretch of the season.last_img read more

Oklahoma State Top Football Target Making Official Visit This Weekend

first_imgOklahoma State’s top target on the gridiron is making his official visit to Stillwater this weekend for the Texas Tech game. The top target, Evan Fields, is a safety and supreme athlete from Midwest City, OK, with offers from K-State, OSU, and high interest from the Sooners. He made his official visit to Manhattan last weekend, where he saw the Pokes come from behind to topple the Wildcats.Official visits are paid for by the university, which means they are able to roll out the red carpet to try and impress the recruit. So far, so good on that front. Here’a a pic of his room during the visit.https://twitter.com/Evan4_/status/797471078360682496The 6-foot-2, 190-pound prospect from Mike Gundy’s alma mater is a bit of a late bloomer on the recruiting front. Although OSU just jumped in recently, make no mistake he is one of the most wanted prospects by the OSU staff. With good reason, he’s a hard-hitting safety with excellent cover skills who would make a perfect fit on the back end of Glenn Spencers defense.With OSU set to lose Jordan Sterns and Derrick Moncrief at safety this year, they need someone to come in and contribute immediately at safety. Fields certainly fits that mold. While you’re here, we’d like you to consider subscribing to Pistols Firing and becoming a PFB+ member.
