The Best Markets For Residential Property Investors 2 days ago Governmental Measures Target Expanded Access to Affordable Housing 2 days ago Data Provider Black Knight to Acquire Top of Mind 2 days ago Demand Propels Home Prices Upward 2 days ago Homeownership is becoming less stressful for many owners, according to a report from NerdWallet, despite the financial and emotional costs of owning a home. NerdWallet Mortgage Expert Tim Manni states that many Americans still put homeownership as a top priority.“Despite homebuying being a long and often exhausting process, and homeownership being a time-consuming and frankly expensive venture, 75 percent of Americans say it’s a priority, according to NerdWallet’s 2018 Home Buyer Report,” Manni said. “If recessions, high prices, and stress can’t kill the American dream, I’m not sure anything will. The American desire to own a home is incredibly resilient.”One reason for the lower stress of homeownership is the falling costs of owning a home. On average, homeowners reported paying $1,443 each month on housing costs, which includes mortgage payments, insurance, property taxes, and HOA fees. NerdWallet states that just one in three homeowners called these costs expensive, meaning the majority of homeowners find their costs of ownership to be affordable. Since the 2008-2010 recession, homeowners have gone from spending 25 percent of their income on homeownership to 21.5 percent as of 2016.Still, according to Manni, many homeowners could be saving even more money if they were to look closely at their insurance premiums.“Homeowners should get into the habit of conducting a yearly audit of their mortgage costs,” Manni says. “For example, contact your insurer to see if there are ways to save on homeowners insurance. Repairs like a new roof could lower your yearly premium, for instance.”Still, home repairs can be the most stressful aspect of owning a home. NerdWallet states that around 65 percent of homeowners have experienced some sort of anxiety related to owning their home, and 75 percent of that anxiety was due to unexpected home repair costs.Manni suggests homeowners should put aside just 2 percent of their yearly home costs for repairs. Other stress factors include late payments and delinquency.Despite this, over half of homeowners reported feeling accomplished and proud of their home.

India cancels auction for 21 coal mines due to lack of interest FacebookTwitterLinkedInEmailPrint分享CNBC:The coal ministry has received valid interest for only six coal mines out of the 27 which were offered for the iron & steel, cement, and captive power plant end-use. Auction of 21 coal mines has been cancelled by the ministry as it received less than three bids for them.According to the norms of the coal auction under the Coal Mines Nationalisation Act, each mine requires minimum three bids for the government to hold auction.Jamkhani coal mine, situated in the state of Odisha, has attracted maximum bids including from companies like Vedanta, JSW, Hindalco, JSPL, Rungta Mines and Natural Resources Energy Limited.“The response to the coal auction has been subdued, mainly because of the market sentiment and also changes in policy,” said a source from the coal ministry.The auction process was incorporated in 2014, post deallocation of 214 coal mines. India has not seen a successful auction of coal mines after the first round where it auctioned 24 coal mines, out of which about 12 are now in production.More: Auction of 21 coal mines cancelled as govt sees tepid response
Read also: Activists, politicians urge protection of Chinese mistreated over coronavirusThe workers were briefly detained last week at a COVID-19 monitoring post at the border between the provinces of Southeast and Central Sulawesi, despite having lived in Kendari for a long time.Longki said it was important to tighten surveillance of foreigners to curb the spread of COVID-19 in the region.The governor argued that there was a legal basis for preventing the Chinese nationals from entering his province founded on a Manpower Ministry circular on foreign workers and other efforts to curb the spread of the disease. Local governments have shown a lack of trust in Chinese workers employed in numerous projects throughout the country, potentially signaling a flashpoint in Indonesia-China relations and dampening milestone diplomatic celebrations this year.Recently, Central Sulawesi Governor Longki Djanggola ordered 10 Chinese workers to return to their camp in Kendari, in neighboring Southeast Sulawesi, after they were stopped on their way to a work site in North Morowali regency.The workers were expecting to repair smelters belonging to PT Gunbuster Nickel Industries (GNI), a subsidiary of PT Virtue Dragon Nickel Industry, the Chinese-backed mining company that employs them. They were reportedly the only people with the expertise to make the repairs. Longki said that companies had to provide the necessary paperwork and inform local authorities before sending foreign workers on work-related trips.In the meantime, he said, the 10 workers would be monitored by local agencies from the immigration, health and manpower sectors.”You cannot just bring in foreign workers without coordination, so I asked that they immediately be returned to Kendari,” he told The Jakarta Post on Friday.The presence, activities and health of foreign workers had to be supervised by the government, the governor said, even if the workers were carrying out activities on behalf of their firms.The COVID-19 epidemic has elicited increased suspicion of foreign workers in Indonesia, particularly those from China, where the virus that causes the disease is believed to have originated – although some studies cast doubt on this assumption.Read also: How to communicate COVID-19 risk without fuelling anti-Chinese sentiment in IndonesiaAs of Thursday, there were 7,775 confirmed cases of COVID-19 in the country, 37 of which were reported in Southeast Sulawesi and 29 of which were reported in Central Sulawesi.Three people have died in Central Sulawesi, including the late North Morowali regent Aptripel Tumimomor, who tested positive for the disease posthumously earlier this month.First responders: Officials respond to a helicopter crash inside an industrial park in Morowali, Central Sulawesi, on Friday. The helicopter was carrying six Chinese nationals. (Courtesy of/The National Disaster and Mitigation Agency )Other regions have also shown a tendency to discriminate against Chinese workers.Late last month, 39 Chinese workers arriving in Bintan in the Riau Islands province were refused entry. Authorities argued that the workers’ employer, the aluminum producer PT Bintan Alumina Indonesia based in the Galang Batang special economic zone (KEK), did not have a permit to employ foreign workers, kompas.com reported.A Chinese worker was refused entry to West Kalimantan despite having obtained a medical certificate. He was deported just days after his arrival, which sparked public protest amid COVID-19 fears.Asmuni, a spokesman for the Pontianak Imigration Agency, said he was under strict orders from the regional administration head to deport the person in question.“While he did produce a medical certificate, we still don’t know the actual conditions in his home country. It is better to be sent home than to be allowed in and end up making a fuss,” he told The Jakarta Post on Tuesday.The Pontianak administration rejected the worker on March 27, well before the central government announced it would temporarily ban foreigners from entering Indonesia.The ban, which was formalized under Law and Human Rights Ministry Regulation No. 11/2020, came into effect on April 3.“Based on our observations since the ban, there is no foreign traffic to or from West Kalimantan at this time,” Asmuni said.Throughout Indonesia, 239 foreigners have been denied entry between Feb. 6 and April 19, according to data from the Law and Human Rights Ministry’s Directorate for Immigration.From the official records, 89 of those denied entry were from China, 15 from Malaysia and 12 from Russia.The Chinese Embassy in Jakarta was not immediately available for comment.Anti-Chinese sentiment has been a growing problem in Southeast Asia – even before the COVID-19 outbreak – as Beijing’s influence and presence in the region has increased.Foreign direct investment from China, Indonesia’s second-largest foreign investor, almost doubled last year to US$4.7 billion from $2.4 billion in 2018, according to data from the Investment Coordinating Board (BKPM).Meanwhile, many Indonesians of Chinese descent still have deep-seated fears of a mass reprisal against their minority group, owing to the country’s history of anti-communist violence, which was often directed at racial minorities.Read also: Chinese-Indonesians feel like outsiders amid persisting racist sentimentThe recently growing sentiment has aggravated underlying grievances caused by the fear that Chinese investments will further marginalize local communities, said Dewi Fortuna Anwar from the Indonesian Institute of Sciences (LIPI).“The general perception of China in Indonesia is very mixed,” the international relations research professor said.“There’s always distrust based on history, politics and the social makeup of the two countries, as well as ethnicity. It’s complex, and the issue of Chinese workers has been here for a few years following increased investment [from] China.”The Morowali Industrial Park in Central Sulawesi, which turned Indonesia into the world’s second-largest exporter of stainless steel in just five years, has been mired in rumors of an influx in foreign workers. The rumors have exacerbated anti-Chinese sentiment, but the government has brushed them aside as an exaggeration.Unlike projects from Europe or Japan that employ a few foreign experts and arrange transfers of technology, Dewi said that Chinese investment was mostly bundled with workers from China.“This has resulted in resentment at the local level because [of the lack of] added value to the local economy,” she said. “There are existing concerns that foreign workers will take opportunities away from locals, and they are often exclusive in nature, which prompts racist responses.”But all of that should go away with the significantly reduced mobility everywhere, not just among Chinese people, she noted.Indonesia and China will celebrate 70 years of diplomatic relations this year.– Severianus Endi contributed to this story from Pontianak, West Kalimantan.

Wenger desperate for win in race for Champions League places– Newcastle struggles –Newcastle travel to the North London with problems mounting for manager Rafa Benitez.Even though a £300 million ($403 million) takeover of the club by Amanda Staveley’s PCP Capital Partners is set to go through early in the New Year, a battle for Premier League survival threatens to overshadow the arrival of new owners to succeed the unpopular figure of Mike Ashley, the Sport Direct billionaire who is set to relinquish control after a decade in charge at St James’s Park.The Tynesiders are just a point above the relegation zone after losing seven of their past eight games are in danger of an immediate return to the Championship.England midfielder Jonjo Shelvey starts a two-match suspension after being sent off in the 1-0 home defeat to Everton, while goalkeeper Karl Darlow is set to drop to the bench after making costly errors in the past two matches.“I don’t think you can say we’re in a relegation battle at this stage,” said captain Jamaal Lascelles. “Lots of people would probably have been happy with the points tally we are on if they were asked at the start of the season, so I’m not going to say we’re in a relegation battle.“There have been a few home truths said in the dressing room, because we don’t want to leave it too late for things like that to be said. The reality is we’re not in a great position and sometimes things need to be said that players don’t want to hear. Hopefully, we’ll get a reaction against Arsenal.”Share on: WhatsApp Arsene WengerLondon, United Kingdom | AFP | Arsene Wenger knows Arsenal cannot afford another slip-up when they face Newcastle at the Emirates Stadium aiming to end a damaging run of three Premier League games without a win.Wenger’s team played a scoreless draw at West Ham United on Wednesday and is in seventh place going into Saturday’s meeting with Rafael Benitez’s team.Only one point separates the Gunners from Tottenham Hotspur in fourth, but in what is shaping up to be a tight battle for the Champions League places, Arsenal can ill-afford to drop more points against a struggling team.The West Ham draw was preceded by a stalemate at Southampton — both games Wenger would have expected to win — reinforcing the view that Arsenal have not yet recovered from the blow of losing to Manchester United at home.Wenger shuffled his pack for the short trip to West Ham, with both Jack Wilshere and Olivier Giroud making their first Premier League starts of the season.Wilshere declared himself satisfied with his performance but admitted that he has yet to open talks with the club about an extension to his contract, which runs out at the end of the season.“There’s not really a date in the diary for talks,” the England midfielder told London’s Evening Standard newspaper.“At the moment, I’ve just played my first game in the Premier League. I’m concentrating on staying fit and staying in (the) team. That will look after itself and when it’s the right time, I’m sure the boss will pull me (in) so we can have a chat.”“The games come thick and fast and that’s a good thing because we dropped points tonight (Wednesday) but have the chance to get three points on Saturday,” he added. “We need to recover now and be ready for that.”

NOTES: Winning owner Deron Pearson who campaigns as DP Racing, is from Valencia. MIKE SMITH, PRIZE EXHIBIT, WINNER: “I was able to get her to relax early and she can be on the rank side. Sometimes, going into a race where there’s not much pace, everyone thinks the same thing and it worked out that way today. We took advantage.“I got a clear trip today. I’ve been handcuffed the last few times I’ve been on her, with traffic in front of me and never had a clear path. I got her out in the clear today and it was great.“I think she can go short or long. She’s already shown she can run down the hill and she has such a turn of foot. When she crosses that dirt, I’m sure she explodes. I didn’t get to ride her down the hill, but I think she can go a mile, a mile and a sixteenth as well. As long as you get her covered up and keep her turned off.” TRAINER QUOTES JIM CASSIDY, PRIZE EXHIBIT, WINNER: “We had her in the hill race last week but it came off the grass due to weather. She’s trained so well into this race.“She trained well going into that hill race but then, her work after that didn’t go was tremendous; over the top good. I worried about that a little but she was fine. She’s a tough girl. She can be tricky. We’ve had to do a lot of different things with her and she’s just been happier lately. We’ve been working her from the gate and she seems to like that.“She’s somethin’ else.” DERON PEARSON, OWNER, PRIZE EXHIBIT, WINNER: “She finally got the trip that she needed. Mike rode her perfectly. I think she got the ground that she wanted and it worked out well.“These graded races are always difficult to win. There’s always a tough horse and usually tough to get a good trip. I was a little concerned the pace was too slow, but she’s got the best kick of any of these horses in the race and she showed it today.” JOCKEY QUOTES
