Ireland and O’Driscoll celebrate 2014 Six Nations victory in Paris

first_imgMonday Mar 17, 2014 Ireland and O’Driscoll celebrate 2014 Six Nations victory in Paris Brian O’Driscoll got the fairytale farewell Ireland fans had hoped for as the team he represented 133 times beat France 22-20 in Paris on Saturday to claim the 2014 Six Nations. Ireland’s superior points difference proved crucial on the final weekend. England fans wore blue on Saturday evening as they came within inches of claiming the title, only to have a French try-scoring pass ruled out for being forward. A France victory would have handed them the title, instead Ireland’s impressive points tally made all the difference in the end.O’Driscoll, now 35-years-old and having achieved all there is to achieve in the Northen Hemisphere (plus a Lions tour victory), bows out of the game a year before the Rugby World Cup.“I don’t want to take it off, because I know when I do, it will be for the last time,” he said of the famous number 13 Ireland jersey that he’s owned for the best part of fifteen years.“It’s a sheer delight to have won the championship. I have had a lot of good memories from the times between winning here 14 years ago and now, but to finish like this is incredibly special.“Not many get the chance to end their careers on their own terms. I am just thankful to have been part of a great team who have massive potential to become even better,” O’Driscoll added.“I tried to channel my emotions into my performance. I couldn’t let the occasion get the better of me. I think I played fair today – I did think I might get in for a try, but I had to come inside as I knew I didn’t have the gas to burn on the outside.“At the end, I did have a frog in my throat, there was a fair bit of emotion. There were some great emotions in the dressing room – and I wouldn’t bet against a few tears later on after a lot of beers!”French coach Phillipe Saint-Andre, who appeared to question if that final pass was actually forward or not, paid tribute to O’Driscoll and said that next year France might have that extra bit of luck.“Next year Brian O’Driscoll will not be here and maybe we will have the God of rugby on our side.”Congratulations to Ireland and O’Driscoll.

Journalist banned from press centre

first_img Reporters Without Borders today deplored the barring of a French journalist from the press centre at the recent French-Speaking Countries’ Summit in Beirut on grounds that he had worked unofficially for an Israeli TV station.Gédéon Kouts, who was accredited only as a reporter for the French Jewish monthly L’Arche, did an interview on 17 October for the Israeli TV station Israel Channel Two. The next day, Lebanese journalists accused him of not declaring to conference organisers that he worked for the station. Kouts, who has dual French and Israeli nationality and is the permanent correspondent in Paris for Israel Channel Two, was escorted back to his hotel by security officials and barred from the conference press centre.”Under the 1971 Munich Declaration, a journalist is not supposed to use improper means to obtain information, photos or documents,” said Reporters Without Borders secretary-general Robert Ménard. “However in some situations, they are obliged to bend the rules to gather the news. The Israeli media wanted to cover the Summit but because of the official state of war between Israel and Lebanon, there was no other solution but to try to get round the rules of the profession.”Reporters Without Borders notes that journalists visit Burma on tourist visas and that during the US air attack on Afghanistan, French journalist Michel Peyrard entered the country disguised as a woman because journalists were banned. The organisation defended him when he was arrested.

A Look Back at Eight Years of Conservatorship of the GSEs

first_img Demand Propels Home Prices Upward 2 days ago in Daily Dose, Featured, Government, News Demand Propels Home Prices Upward 2 days ago Share Save Governmental Measures Target Expanded Access to Affordable Housing 2 days ago The Best Markets For Residential Property Investors 2 days ago Governmental Measures Target Expanded Access to Affordable Housing 2 days ago Tuesday marks the eight-year anniversary of the conservatorship of Fannie Mae and Freddie Mac. In response to a substantial deterioration in the housing markets that severely damaged Fannie Mae and Freddie Macs’ financial condition and left them unable to fulfill their mission without government intervention. On September 6, 2008, FHFA used its authorities to place Fannie Mae and Freddie Mac into conservatorship.FHFA launched initiatives to recover losses resulting from the housing crisis of 2008 as well as avoid further liability to Fannie Mae and Freddie Mac. The agency sought to decrease the amount of outstanding repurchases, and they worked to also decrease the amount of loans originated with manufacturing defects due to poor underwriting standards. Finally, FHFA assumed actions to decrease the amount of operational loss events at Fannie Mae and Freddie Mac.The FHFA notes that a key component of the conservatorship is the commitment of the U.S. Department of the Treasury to provide financial support to Fannie Mae and Freddie Mac to enable them to continue to provide liquidity and stability to the mortgage market. In doing so, the Treasury Department has provided $189.5 billion in support. This includes an initial placement of $1 billion in both Fannie Mae and Freddie Mac at the time of the conservatorship and an additional cumulative $187.5 billion investment from the Treasury Department.In addition, as conservator, FHFA assumed the authority of the management and boards of Fannie Mae and Freddie Mac during the period of the conservatorship. The agency states though that while it has broad authority over Fannie Mae and Freddie Mac, the focus of the conservatorship is not to manage every aspect of their operations.At the time of their conservatorship in September 2008, Fannie Mae’s total outstanding debt stood at $843 billion and Freddie Mac’ total outstanding debt stood at $814.9 billion. As of their most recent monthly volume summary report for July, Fannie Mae’s total outstanding debt stands at $362.3 billion and Freddie Mac’s total outstanding debt stands at $389.4 billion. Both of the GSE’s have reduced their outstanding debt by over half.In regards to the aggregate unpaid principal balance for the GSEs, both Fannie Mae and Freddie Mac have seen a reduction of over half since the time of conservatorship to the most current report in July 2016. Fannie Mae sits at an aggregated UPB of $308.9 billion compared to an aggregated UPB at the time of conservatorship in September 2008 of $761.4 billion. Likewise, Freddie Mac sits at an aggregated UPB of $319.3 billion in comparison to an aggregated UPB in September 2008 of $736.9 billion.Not everyone shares positive feelings for the conservatorship of the GSEs, though. The subject of GSE reform has long been a hotly contested one among lawmakers and the housing industry. Though both Democrats and Republicans have pushed for GSE reform in recent years, little has been done by Congress to change the conservatorship or even consider a path toward reforming the current system. Recently though, GSE reform has been hot in the news, with parties on both sides of the aisle making pushes in Congress.In mid-May, 12 right-center organizations wrote a letter that urged Congress to pass the Mulvaney Bill, a GSE reform bill sponsored by Rep. Mick Mulvaney (R-South Carolina) that would suspend the GSE’s obligation to fund the National Housing Trust Fund and Capital Magnet Fund until they were better capitalized.Not long after that, a group of 32 Democratic House of Representatives members wrote to Treasury Secretary Jack Lew and FHFA Director Mel Watt to demand reassessment of the Preferred Stock Purchase Agreement (PSPA), which requires the GSEs to have a capital buffer of zero by January of 2018. This request came on the back of Watt’s February speech at the Bipartisan Policy Center, when he proclaimed the GSEs’ capital buffer as one of the biggest risks of conservatorship to date.Additionally, a new bill was proposed by Congressman French Hill (R-Arkansas) in June, called the HR 5505 GSE Review and Reform Act. The bill would require the U.S Treasury Secretary to study the Federal Housing Finance Agency’s conservatorship of Fannie Mae and Freddie Mac annually, as well as the impact ending that conservatorship might have. The bill would also require the Treasury to present recommendations to Congress each year on how to progress GSE reform and move toward ending the conservatorship.The next move for the GSEs is still unclear and it may be until a new administration takes office for there to be any movement with GSE reform, but one thing is for certain; the FHFA’s conservatorship has had a large impact on not just Fannie Mae and Freddie Mac but the industry as a whole.
