According to a new report from LendEDU, millennials that are not yet homeowners to see may lack some knowledge about key details of buying a home and obtaining a mortgage.According to LendEDU’s survey most millennials, between the ages of 23 and 38, are homeowners, at 58%, and 89% of the remaining respondents said they wish to become homeowners at some point in their life. Additionally, the majority of respondents (65%) think they can become homeowners within the next five years.The biggest obstacles for these millennials who have not yet become homeowners are low incomes and a lack of savings.“Monthly mortgage payments can get quite steep and require a serious financial commitment that usually calls for having at least three months worth of payments stowed away in savings, so this result makes sense,” said LendEDU.Other factors holding millennials back included “poor credit” (17%), “overwhelming student loan debt” (10%), “other debt” (6%), and “overwhelming credit card debt” (5%).LendEDU also examined how the 2008 financial crisis impacted the homebuying decisions of millennials. According to the survey, 13% of millennials that have no desire to ever become homeowners cited the 2008-09 financial crisis as the reason for that lack of desire. LendEDU states that though this is not a large portion, it is large enough to take notice.Yet another factor holding back young potential homebuyers is the complicated mortgage buying process. LendEDU survey states that 55% of millennial respondents stated their lack of knowledge on homeownership and mortgages has prevented them from being a homeowner. One piece of information millennials lack is the down payment amount. On average, millennials are overestimating the amount needed for a down payment, stating that 37% of the home’s total purchase price was necessary. In reality, a 20% down payment is ideal and seen as the status quo mortgage down payment percentage, and a home-buyer can actually make a down payment as low as 3%.

The Single Bench of Justice Najmi Waziri has set aside the ex-parte injunction passed by the district court by holding that where there’s a fair discussion in public domain which is based on facts and not malicious, the same is protected under freedom to speech and expression. The court said: ‘In a civilised society, which is governed by rule of law, discussions should be governed by facts. The moment such discussions go into speculations and unproven facts, right to injunction arises.’ While sitting aside the ex-parte injunction passed by the district court against Harper Collins, the court observed that the district court was not made aware of the disclaimer which is present in the book. Moreover, the court noted that the book is based on the facts available in the public domain and the original plaintiffs had moved the district court only on the penultimate date of publication. During the course of the proceedings, Justice Waziri noted that 5,000 books had already been printed. Thus, he orally remarked that these many books “cannot be undone” and suggested the parties to arrive at a “mutual closure”. However, after seeking instructions, Senior Advocate Devadatt Kamat, appearing for the respondent, had asked the Court to adjudicate on merits. Kamat had argued that the Court had to strike a balance between 5,000 books of a Publication House and the Reputation and Right to fair Trial of the Defendant/Plaintiff, who was co-convicted as Asaram’s aide. Reading out excerpts from the Judgment, Kamat had said “Extreme proposition that judges are never influenced or impressed by extraneous publications is difficult to be accepted”. Kamat had argued that release of the book will cause an irreparable damage to the Defendant/Plaintiff’s reputation and will adversely affect her Right to a fair trial. At this juncture, Sr Adv Sibal had intervened and pointed out that Mr. Kamat had conveniently missed an important aspect of Mushtaq Moosa Judgment. He pointed out that the Bombay HC had passed the injunction order in the above case only until delivery of Judgment by the TADA Court. “Film was permitted to be released until passing of Judgment. Where is censorship after conviction? Mr. Kamat has conveniently missed the operative part,” Sibal had argued. He had further submitted that he is not denying that the Respondent/Plaintiff has a right to reputation. He said that the book should be released and if the Plaintiff is aggrieved, she may file a suit for defamation. However, he added that he shall take the defence of Truth in those proceedings as the book was based on the facts disclosed in the conviction Judgment rendered by the Special POCSO Court, Jodhpur. After that, the judge had urged the parties to explore the scope and settlement and adjourned the hearing for sometime. Later, the parties had told the bench that the settlement process failed. Justice Waziri has reserved judgment and the order is likely to be released on the HC website. The book, alleged to be a true story of the facts surrounding the conviction of self-styled godman Aasaram Bapu was authored by Ajay Lamba, Additional Commissioner of Police, Jaipur and Sanjiv Mathur. It was scheduled to be released last Saturday. The impugned order was passed ex-parte on September 4 by the Additional District Court, Patiala House in Delhi restraining its publication in a suit filed by Sanchita Gupta, who was convicted as an aide of the self-styled godman in a case related to rape of a minor. The Civil Court observed that the publication of the book could cause irreparable harm to the reputation of the plaintiff. During the course of the proceedings, Senior Advocate Kapil Sibal, appearing for Harper Collins, had submitted that the law on ex-parte injunction against publication is that the plaintiff has to show utmost good faith. However, in the instant case, the plaintiff did not approach the court with clean hands, as the judgment of the trial court that convicted and sentenced her was not appended along with the plaint. “What the Respondent/Plaintiff claims to be Defamatory, are observations made by the Court. They have suppressed material facts by not annexing the Judgment. On this ground alone, the application should be dismissed”, Sibal had argued. He had pointed out that the High Court has only suspended the sentence and that the conviction is still in operation. He had further submitted that while passing the impugned order, the trial court fell into “serious error” in not considering the settled principles of law against pre-publication censorship which is unconstitutional as it is against the right to freedom of expression under Article 19 (1) (a) of the Constitution of India. Sibal had further submitted that the plaintiff approached the court on the last minute, just a day before the scheduled publication even though the publication was announced in media in the last week of July, and this factor should be held against them. Senior Advocate Devadatt Kamat (assisted by Advocates Rajesh Inamdar, Naman Joshi and Karan Khanuja), appearing for the respondent/plaintiff, submitted that the matter was still sub-judice, and the publication of the book can cause prejudice to the appeal and tarnish her reputation. “If tomorrow the Special Court Judgment is reversed by the HC, the book, standing with all its disclaimers, will be available in market. This will tarnish the reputation of Respondent/Plaintiff forever”, Kamat submitted. Kamat had further submitted that the publisher should approach the trial court first, seeking vacation of the interim order by filing an application under Order 39 Rule 4 of the Code of Civil Procedure. When Kamat had submitted that the book has dramatized the events, Justice Waziri orally remarked, “There has to be some license for the writer to write in a particular way. It cannot be drab like recording evidence”. Kamat had also referred to the order passed by the High Court against the movie ‘Batla Hosue’. Justice Waziri replied that the said order was passed not on contest but after the film-makers voluntarily agreed to make changes. Kamat had also referred to the pre-publication restraint passed against Juggernaut from publishing a book on Baba Ramdev. Next Storylast_img read more

Hundreds gather to combat cancer

first_img The Penny Hoarder Issues “Urgent” Alert: 6 Companies… Print Article Sponsored Content Email the author Published 10:44 pm Friday, May 7, 2010 Skip Alex’s seventh birthday was spent in Children’s Hospital in Birmingham where he was a very sick little boy. Cancer had invaded his body, seemingly almost overnight. One day he was on the ball field and a short time later he couldn’t walk.But on Friday night, May 7, 2010, Relay day in Pike County, Alex celebrated his eighth birthday with his friends from Banks School, family, friends and well-wishers.“I’m not sure that Alex ever knew how sick he really was,” his mother Kim Morgan said. “He was brave through it all.”Looking back on the year, Morgan said every day she thanks the Lord for seeing her family through those dark days of uncertainty. Cancer is a formidable foe but battles are won every day against the disease. Through the efforts of the millions across the country, who are committed to the fight, one day the final victory will be celebrated.On Friday night, hundreds packed the Relay field at the Troy Sportsplex and celebrated those who have survived the devastating disease, remembered those lives that were lost and gave encouragement and support to those who are in the fight.One of the biggest celebrations of the night was held in easy earshot of center stage, where Alex Morgan was turning eight years old.

We couldn’t let Alex see us cry. It’s so hard to smile when all you want to do is cry.”The Morgans know the power of prayer and they also know that the advances that have been made in the diagnoses and treatment of cancer are making a difference. The difference is in the face of a happy eight-year-old boy and a 13-year-old middle school student.Delaney Davenport was nearly nine years old when she was diagnosed with cancer. She is now a strong supporter of Relay for Life.“Because I don’t ever want anyone to feel that kind of pain,” Delaney said. “Sometimes I think about getting cancer again and that scares me but I don’t think about it too much. I just try to help all that I can. A lot of children get cancer and that makes me sad.”Little EB Johnson is in the fight against cancer and her presence at Relay was an inspiration and a visible reason to stay the fight, Danny Rhodes said. “She’s a fighter, and we’re going to fight with her.”The mood of the night was festive because of the victories that have been won over cancer and because of the will of so many to continue the fight until the battle is won.Ralph Black, honorary chair of the 2010 Pike County Relay for Life campaign, said more than 3.5 million people took part in Relay events around the nation last year and raised more than $386 million for the war chest against the disease.“And, Pike County, Alabama is always in the top percentage for per capita giving,” he said. “That’s amazing for a county of our size.”In the 2008-09 Relay campaign, Pike County was in the Mid South Division’s Top 20 per capita in Alabama and in the Top 25 in the Division.Pam Little and Rhonda Turberville, co-chairs of the 2009-2010 Pike County Relay for Life campaign expressed appreciation to all of those who have worked so hard to make the campaign a success – the Relay board, the teams and all of those who have given so generously.“Cancer never sleeps,” Turberville said.“Neither can we. We can make a difference, and we will.”Little said less cancer means more birthdays.“We want to celebrate more birthdays, just as we celebrated Alex’s eighth birthday tonight, so we must not give up the fight.”Fundraising totals were not available before the time of press Friday.Look for the amounts on www.troymessenger.com.

New Law Aims To Protect Students Boarding School Buses

first_imgBy Abrahm HurtTheStatehouseFile.comINDIANAPOLIS– Indiana children are heading back to school with a new state law in place to try to keep them safe as they board buses.The law was passed this year by the Indiana General Assembly in response to the deaths of three children in 2018 as they prepared to get on their school bus in Fulton County.Alivia Stahl and her twin brothers, Xzavier and Mason Ingle, were hit and killed last October. Alyssa Shepherd, who was on her way to work, failed to stop for a school bus that had its lights flashing and stop arm extended, striking the children as they crossed the street.Shepherd is scheduled to face trial in October on three counts of reckless homicide, one count of criminal recklessness and one count of passing a school bus with its safety arm extended.Indiana State Police Sgt. Tony Slocum, public information officer for the Peru district which contains Fulton County, sent out a Tweet recently warning motorists to pay attention.“Be ready in the early morning and early afternoon hours to stop for school buses. Watch for children walking to and from school/waiting on buses,” Slocum tweeted.  “Officers will have zero tolerance for those who disregard a bus stop arm or speed in school zones.”Senate Enrolled Act 2, authored by Sen. Randy Head, R-Logansport,makes running a school bus stop sign a Class A misdemeanor, up from a Class B misdemeanor. If the action results in injury, it is a Level 6 felony, and if the action results in a death it is a Level 5 felony, which carries a penalty of one to six years in prison.The new law also adds school bus safety to the topics required on a learner’s permit or driver’s license exam, requires school buses to have reflective tape in certain areas and school buses must operate with daytime running lights.Others changes include that if a school bus is operated on a U.S. or state route, outside city or town boundaries, the bus driver may not load or unload a student at a location that requires the student to cross a roadway. The only exception is if there are no other safe alternatives.The law also says school bus drivers should load or unload students as close as possible to the right-hand curb or edge of the roadway.The law mandates school corporations, charter schools and accredited nonpublic schools that provide transportation to annually review their school bus routes and safety policies.Rep. Terry Goodin, an Austin Democrat who also is superintendent of Crothersville Community Schools, said the school corporation had to make some changes to their bus routes but that they were already complying with the additional safety codes.“We changed up some routes to make sure we were picking up kids on certain sides of the road and on the door side of the bus,” he said.Goodin said their bus drivers are professional who do a “superb job” and are “always on the spot.”“They treat those kids that get on that bus just like they would their own,” he said. “They’re conscious about the safety procedures and habits.”Adam Baker, spokesman for the Indiana Department of Education, said the department has spoken to most districts and, so far, all have said they are able to comply.He said IDOE wrote and distributed guidance for the districts based on the new law.“We believe it should help,” Baker said, “but also understand some of the new law, such as where buses can load and unload students, only applies to state and U.S. highways. There are other locations where students can cross.”State law had already required motorists to stop, rather than simply proceed with caution, when a school bus is picking up or dropping off children, as signaled by its lights and the stop arm extended.But according to the Indiana State Police website, drivers do not have to stop if the road is divided by a physical barrier such as a guardrail, concrete barrier or grass median. On a divided roadway, only vehicles traveling in the same direction as the school bus are required to stop.Indiana law requires the State Police Department to perform an annual inspection on all buses and a semi-annual inspection on buses at least 12 years old to ensure they are safe to operate. The State Police website says these inspections help provide safe modes of transportation, prevent crashes and injuries and lower the cost of operation and maintenance for school systems.“The biggest thing that can be done to improve safety at bus stops is to drive home to motorists they have to be more attentive while driving,” Baker said. “While their vehicle may be a convenience to them, it quickly can become a two-ton weapon if they are not paying attention.”Goodin said he would like the General Assembly to stay involved in school bus safety.“What I would like to see the legislature do is to be a little more proactive and try to assume or try to figure out where problems might be to fix beforehand,” he said. “But, unfortunately a lot of the scenarios happen, and that’s what leads to the safety side.”FOOTNOTE:  Abrahm Hurt is a reporter for TheStatehouseFile.com, a news website powered by Franklin College journalists.
