He will also play an important role in the selection of the team.We are delighted to announce Steve Coppell as our new Manager! #WelcomeSteveCoppell #YellowMeinKhelo #HeroISL pic.twitter.com/KnMCirsWmS Kerala Blasters FC (@KBFCOfficial) June 21, 2016Coppell was the foremost right-winger of his generation known for his speed and work rate. He won domestic honours for Manchester United with 322 appearances and 53 goals.He represented England in 42 games, including at the FIFA World Cup, from 1977 to 1983 before his career was cut short by an injury.RICH EXPERIENCEHis mentoring of Crystal Palace and Reading resulted in both clubs achieving their greatest-ever successes in the English Premier League. He was twice named League Managers’ Association ‘Manager of the Year’ when he was in charge of Reading FC.”Indian Super League has laid a strong foundation in its last two seasons nurturing quality Indian football. Also, its unique format gives an opportunity to Indian players to play and compete against international talent, learnings that will strengthen the roots of football in India,” Coppell said in a release after being named the coach.”I have heard a lot about the strong fan support of Kerala Blasters FC, as also Kerala’s strong legacy in Indian football. I believe in creating an environment for the players to win matches and am looking forward to working with the team and sharing my passion for the game with them!” the veteran coach said.advertisement
England’s fabulous wingplay, Rhian Brewster’s goal and Spain’s switch to an all out attacking game by leaving spaces in the defence towards the end did them in, a crestfallen Spain coach Santiago Denia said after losing the Under-17 FIFA World Cup final here on Saturday.”Our forwards played well first 40 minutes, then the England goal really hurt us,” Denia told mediapersons at the post match presser.”England took a step forward by pressuring us up front that forced us to play possession game and they are very good at transition game. We had open spaces at the back and we did have some chances. But we did not have as much control as we would have liked,” the coach said.Denia said his team was confident of victory going into the break with a 2-1 lead. The Spaniards considered the match open even when England went up 3-2 in the second session.”Until 3-2 it was an open game but after that we had to go forward and leave spaces behind and we conceded goals. We had a very clear chance when it was 3-2 but after that England made it 4-2 and we lost the game at that stage,” the former Atletico Madrid player said.Asked why Spain failed to stop England’s wingplay, he said: “We had prepared a plan to curb England’s wingplay by deploying the left and right back with the midfielders to help them. As you guys saw, they (England) have very good technical players who can play inside. And Foden also cut in from the right. We knew that but we didn’t lay well.”advertisementDenia said he was broken after the defeat but still proud of the work the team has done over the past two years,”That goes beyond the result of final. We have accomplished as a team. We are runners up, we are Euro champions. I am proud of that,” he said.”England are a very good team and they played better than us. I am happy with the way we played but this result… we have to accept it.”Lauding England playmaker Philip Foden, Denia said he had a great future ahead.”He is a great player and has a great future ahead. We tried to defend him but he played well”.He did not think Spain were at a disadvantage having to play at four different venues. In contrast, England played six of their seven games in Kolkata.”No, that is something we cannot control. We are happy to play in four venues. We have been trying to adapt to the conditions in the first two-three days. But it wasn’t enough. Today, that is clear”.
EAST RUTHERFORD, N.J. — Odell Beckham Jr. did a lot homework getting ready to face Darrelle Revis and the New York Jets.It may have gone for naught.When the biggest playmaker on the New York Giants offense lines up on Dec. 6, he probably won’t be going against Revis, arguably the NFL’s best cornerback.Revis missed the Jets’ game against Miami last week with a concussion and his chances of playing this week are not good after sitting out practice on Dec. 2-3.“You just got to move on,” Beckham said after practice. “We still play the Jets. Last time I was concerned, it wasn’t me versus Revis. It would have been fun to be able to go against a guy like that. Obviously, you know I have high praise for him. Unfortunate that he’s not playing, but down the road, you never know, there may be a match-up there. But right now we’re focused on beating the Jets.”Beckham and Revis worked out in Arizona in the offseason and got to know each other. It’s why Beckham went above and beyond to get ready for this game.He telephoned DeAndre Hopkins of the Houston Texans and Jarvis Landry of the Miami Dolphins and he was trying to reach Amari Cooper of the Oakland Raiders to pick their brains. All played against Revis this season.“Definitely prepared and looked into it,” Beckham said. “I mean, you have to, you have to study a guy like that. Obviously we know that he studies, studies in the off-season, during the bye week.”Giants offensive coordinator Ben McAdoo said Beckham’s preparation happens more often than we sometimes realize.“It’s their own culture. I think a lot of guys talk in and out of the locker room, with different locker rooms and a lot is said,” McAdoo said. “They have their own mini game plan, the players do, within our game plan. I think that’s a neat part of our league that you really don’t get to hear a lot about.”McAdoo said the Giants are prepared should Revis not play and the game plan would tilt a bit.The key for the Giants will be giving Eli Manning time to throw against one of the best pass rushing teams in the league. If Manning gets that, there is no doubt he will target Beckham.Over the past four games, Manning has thrown 176 passes, with Beckham being targeted 56 times, or roughly 32 percent of the time. The two have connected 30 times for 481 yards and five touchdowns.McAdoo doesn’t feel the Giants are forcing the ball to Beckham, who was targeted 18 times in the 20-14 loss to Washington.“That’s just the way it went last week,” McAdoo said. “Every week is a new week. The last few weeks, he’s been targeted a bunch and we’ll see how this game goes.”Beckham doesn’t care how many passes come his way. He just wants to win and get to the playoffs, and the Giants (5-6) have that chance despite losing their last two games. They are tied for first place in the NFC East with the Redskins with five games to go.“Life is all about opportunities and how you seize them and make the most of them,” he said. “We had an opportunity to do some pretty big things last week, as far as putting ourselves in good position to be where we want to be. It didn’t happen, so you move on, you keep going, keep preparing, keep getting better. You still have got five games and you try to win them all.”(TOM CANAVAN, AP Sports Writer) TweetPinShare0 Shares
“The Government of Jamaica is well aware of the closely bound interaction between energy security and food security. Prime Minister, the Most Hon. Andrew Holness, says that for agriculture to maximise its full potential, high energy costs must be kept in check.“We cannot speak of transforming and modernising our agricultural sector without addressing how to alleviate those high energy costs,” he noted.“The Government of Jamaica is well aware of the closely bound interaction between energy security and food security.We are now developing an energy ecosystem that is diverse, environmentally sensitive and affordable,” he added.The Prime Minister was addressing the opening ceremony of the Food and Agriculture Organization (FAO) Regional Conference for Latin America and the Caribbean on March 7 at the Montego Bay Convention Centre, St. James.He noted that the Government has a target to meet 30 per cent of the country’s energy needs through renewable sources by 2030, and “we are currently at 18 per cent and on track to achieve that 30 per cent”.He said that the Ministry of Science, Energy and Technology will also explore the utilisation of biofuels to further diversify the country’s energy sources.The Prime Minister argued that the possibilities for the agricultural sector greatly increase when electricity and other energy-related costs are less vulnerable to volatile oil prices.He argued that with diversified energy sources, small farmers and agro-processors, and others who are employed in the agricultural sector will benefit from reduced operational costs through the use of renewable energy.Such investment, he said, will serve to boost the agricultural sector, which he noted is important for rural development and economic growth.“This is significant, because as empirical data have shown, in Jamaica overall, economic growth is strongly positively correlated with the growth in the agricultural sector,” the Prime Minister said.“We are addressing the crucial nexus between energy and food security and finding solutions to secure both to put these two sectors in sync, which is a necessary component for sustainable development,” the Prime Minister added. Prime Minister, the Most Hon. Andrew Holness, says that for agriculture to maximise its full potential, high energy costs must be kept in check. Story Highlights He noted that the Government has a target to meet 30 per cent of the country’s energy needs through renewable sources by 2030, and “we are currently at 18 per cent and on track to achieve that 30 per cent”.

Kabul: At least 12 commanders of Haqqani network were killed in an operation by Afghan forces in the country’s Khost province, officials said on Monday. The National Directorate of Security (NDS) — Afghanistan’s intelligence agency — said in a statement that the commanders were involved in destructive and terrorist activities in the province, TOLO News reported. One member of the Haqqani network was wounded and three others were arrested in the operation which was carried out in Sabari district, the statement said. A number of weapons and explosives were also seized during the operation. The Haqqani network is deemed a strong aide to the Taliban and is widely active in Afghanistan’s provinces of Khost, Paktia and Paktika.
OTTAWA – A budding cross-border data exchange with the United States is quietly helping Canada crack down on immigration violators.The federal government has flagged more than 1,000 possible cases of people overstaying their visas or committing other immigration infractions based on information provided by the United States, newly obtained memos show.Under a 2011 continental security pact, Canada and the United States agreed to set up co-ordinated systems to track the entry and exit information of travellers.The effort involves exchanging entry information collected from people at the land border — so that data on entry to one country serves as a record of exit from the other.Canada says the information will be helpful in everything from tracking known fugitives to responding more effectively to missing-child alerts.The federal NDP and privacy advocates are watching closely, however, out of concern the data could be used to build invasive personal profiles with little accountability.The data includes the traveller’s name, nationality, date of birth and gender, the country that issued their travel document and the time, date and location of their crossing.The first two phases of the program were limited to foreign nationals and permanent residents of Canada and the U.S., but not citizens of either country.Canada’s border agency has begun sharing information with U.S. Homeland Security about the thousands of American citizens who cross into Canada each day. Legislation being debated in Parliament would allow Ottawa to collect similar information about Canadians entering the U.S.But the newly disclosed memos say the preliminary phases are already helping Canada zero in on people who may be running afoul of immigration laws.Between June 2013 and October 2015, Canada received nine million exit records from the U.S., resulting in over 1,000 cases being referred to immigration officials. Such data is helpful in identifying visitors who stay in Canada longer than their visa allows.It can also establish that someone has left Canada, leading to cancellation of 26 immigration warrants and 69 removal orders during the period.The Canadian Press used the Access to Information Act to obtain the figures from the Canada Border Services Agency, a process that took 18 months. A complaint to the federal information commissioner helped dislodge the pages.The number of immigration enforcement actions is almost certainly larger than 1,000, given that the figures do not cover the most recent two years. However, the border agency was unable to provide updated numbers.Once the legislation is passed, information-sharing on all travellers crossing the land border will take place.Canada also plans to begin collecting information on people leaving by plane — something the United States already does — by requiring airlines to submit passenger manifest data for outbound international flights. This information would not be shared with the U.S.The border agency says the fuller data streams will improve monitoring of visa compliance.Canada also intends to use the information to track high-risk travellers such as fugitives, suspected terrorists, registered sex offenders, smugglers and exporters of illegal goods.In addition, the data will help verify whether people have complied with residency requirements and determine their entitlement to social benefits, which may require a presence in Canada.The NDP is skeptical of the need to expand information-sharing with the U.S. and wary of the implications for Canadians in the era of “false positives” that can land people in trouble or deny them entitlements, said Matthew Dube, the party’s public safety critic.“Mistakes can be very costly in those circumstances for people.”The program’s scope underscores the need for strong, clear rules concerning use of the data and steps to ensure its accuracy, said Tim McSorley, national co-ordinator of the Ottawa-based International Civil Liberties Monitoring Group.McSorley wonders whether the Canadian Security Intelligence Service would be permitted to sift through the files to try to discern travel patterns, given the spy service’s interest in datasets. “And then what are the protections that would be afforded there?”He would also like assurances that Canadians will be able to request and see copies of the travel data in order to correct any discrepancies.— Follow @JimBronskill on Twitter

In this April 5, 2017 photo, the abandoned Tiller Elementary School playground is seen in the foreground with the school in the background in downtown Tiller, Ore. Almost all of the downtown in Tiller, a dot on a map in remote southwestern Oregon, is for sale for $3.5 million and the elementary school is for sale separately for $350,000. A potential buyer has come forward but is remaining anonymous — and back-up offers are still being accepted. (AP Photo/Gillian Flaccus) Buyer wanted: Tiny Oregon town for sale by Gillian Flaccus, The Associated Press Posted Apr 21, 2017 2:48 am MDT Last Updated Apr 21, 2017 at 7:00 am MDT AddThis Sharing ButtonsShare to TwitterTwitterShare to FacebookFacebookShare to RedditRedditShare to 電子郵件Email TILLER, Ore. – In the tiny, dying timber town of Tiller, the old cliche is true. If you blink, you might actually miss it.But these days, this dot on a map in southwestern Oregon is generating big-city buzz for an unlikely reason: Almost the entire town is for sale.The asking price of $3.5 million brings with it six houses, the shuttered general store and gas station, the land under the post office, undeveloped parcels, water rights and infrastructure that includes sidewalks, fire hydrants and a working power station. Tiller Elementary School, a six-classroom building that closed in 2014, is for sale separately for $350,000.Potential buyers have come forward but are remaining anonymous, and backup offers are still being accepted.The listing represents a melancholy crossroads for Tiller, a once-bustling logging outpost that sprang up after the turn of the last century deep in what is now the Umpqua National Forest, about 230 miles south of Portland. The post office opened in 1902, and miners, loggers, ranchers and farmers flocked to the community along a pristine river.Then, nearly three decades ago, logging on the federal forest lands that encircle Tiller came to a near standstill because of environmental regulations. The timber mill closed, and families moved away. One longtime resident began buying up properties. When he died three years ago, the family owned much of the town.Then the Tiller Elementary School closed and was up for sale, as well as a small market, and the man’s estate bought those too — and the potential became clear.The listing includes more than 256 acres (1 square kilometre) in 29 distinct parcels, water and timber rights, and a variety of zonings, from residential to industrial.About 235 people still live in the unincorporated area around Tiller, and have long relied on the buildings now for sale along historic Highway 227 as a gathering spot and one of the only places to shop for groceries in miles.“Between the dying economy and the dying owners, Tiller became a new opportunity that had never been available before,” said Richard Caswell, executor of the estate. “I started getting inquiries from all over the world, essentially, ‘What was it? And what could you do with it?’ It’s the buyer and their imagination that’s going to determine what Tiller can become.”The potential buyers have said through the seller’s broker that they intend to turn the school into some type of campus and create a “permaculture” development that respects the town’s remaining residents and its picturesque setting in a bend in the emerald-tinted South Umpqua River. They want to make reopening the market a priority.“The buyers understand that they only have one shot at a first impression,” said Garrett Zoller, principal broker for LandandWildlife.com, the seller’s realtor. “They understand that this is a community of people who live here and that it could be a sensitive subject. … They want to address this project with the community in mind.”Beyond that, Tiller’s future remains shrouded in mystery.The downtown is a ghost town, but plenty of people still live tucked into the mountains in a region where bears wander onto porches and where picking up a cellphone signal takes a 30-minute drive.Residents gather at the church for coffee and cinnamon rolls on Fridays and collect their mail at the one-room post office — when it’s open. Some have a sense of humour: A small, weathered sign affixed to the defunct market reads, “Last one out of Tiller turn out the light.”Sarah Crume and a few other mothers cling to a sense of community by meeting with their young children for playtime at the church, one of the few places not for sale. She’s raising five daughters here and had to send her younger children to school in the next closest town when Tiller Elementary shut down.“It is a little scary, especially raising our kids in this place that we love,” Crume said. “I’m just wondering what kind of impact it’s going to have on the people.”Paula Ellis grew up in Tiller on a ranch and spent her childhood hunting and riding horses here. Her daughters’ beds are decorated with the skins of bears they killed when they were teenagers, and the antlers of the first deer Ellis bagged hangs on a wall near the front door.She met her husband at the elementary school and recalls the annual end-of-the-year contests for the children that were dubbed the Tiller Olympics.A giant cross rises over her home from an adjacent hilltop, and Ellis lately has found herself praying.“If you do choose to live here and raise kids here, it’s a community you fall in love with,” Ellis said, wiping away tears. “And we don’t want to lose that.”Yet Gary Newman, a retiree who lives 5 miles (8 kilometres) outside town, has a different take.He’s watched Tiller wither over the years in a procession of goodbyes. He hopes the buyers will bring new jobs, and new life, to the community.“I’ve been here 17 years, and I want to spend the rest of my life here,” he said.___Follow Gillian Flaccus on Twitter at http://www.twitter.com/gflaccus

Photo Credit: Muyao Shen / Assist. Photo EditorIn the midst of a four-game losing streak, the Ohio State men’s soccer team (1-4-0) is preparing for a tough game against one of its in-state rivals.OSU is scheduled to take on No. 11 Akron (4-1-0) on Wednesday at 7 p.m. at FirstEnergy Stadium – Cub Cadet Field in Akron, Ohio.The Buckeyes will be walking into a stadium in front of a large crowd — the Zips drew 2,734 fans to their last home game — as they take on the task of bringing a victory back to Columbus.Last season, OSU was able to upset the Zips in a first-round NCAA tournament matchup that came down to 15 rounds of penalty kicks. The Buckeyes walked away with the 13-12 penalty kick victory after a 1-1 double overtime draw, leaving the Zips anxious for the 2015 season and a chance to get back at the Scarlet and Gray.“They’re going to want to come back at us because we knocked them out of the tournament last year,” sophomore forward Marcus McCrary said.After returning from a loss against Northwestern on Friday, sophomore defender Hunter Robertson said the Buckeyes have a lot of work to do before taking on the task of handling the Zips.“On Sunday, a lot of the kids who didn’t get to play trained really hard,” Robertson said. “The practice (on Monday) was really intense, but because it’s a rival game, we’ll be ready for this one.”Despite OSU’s slow start to the 2015 season, the Buckeyes are looking to improve their record in a stadium full of fans seeking revenge.“The atmosphere is going to be awesome, (I’m) excited for that, but at the same time we’ve got to keep our concentration,” junior forward Danny Jensen said. “We know what they’re going to throw at us, we’ve played there before and it’s a little crazy, we’ve just have to keep our minds and play our game and hopefully we get the end result.”Honorary captainThe OSU men’s soccer team named 10-year-old Ivan Applin as an honorary captain for its game against Wisconsin on Oct. 18.Ivan had undergone a heart procedure at the C.S. Mott Children’s Hospital in Ann Arbor, Michigan. Ivan’s story made the news after he expressed his concern that he would wake up from surgery a fan of the Michigan Wolverines.The Buckeyes heard about Ivan’s story and created a video, inviting him to become an honorary captain. Two days later, Ivan and his family responded, expressing their excitement about the invite from the Scarlet and Gray. What’s next?Following Wednesday’s game, the Buckeyes are scheduled to host their Big Ten home opener against No. 13 Penn State on Sunday at Jesse Owens Memorial Stadium. Kickoff is set for 3 p.m.

WASHINGTON — In the week after the massacre at Sandy Hook Elementary School, as President Barack Obama and Democratic lawmakers issued urgent calls for new restrictions on guns, America’s largest and most powerful gun lobby laid low.But its silence did not mean the National Rifle Association had grown conciliatory.When NRA Executive Vice President and CEO Wayne LaPierre finally weighed in Friday, he attacked gun-free school zones, the media, and violent movies and video games as he pledged his group would train a vast force of armed volunteers to protect the nation’s schools.The NRA’s defiant stance underscored the pugilistic nature of the 141-year-old organization and its steadfast resistance to any efforts to curb gun sales or ownership. That battle is expected to begin in earnest as soon as next month, when a White House effort led by Vice President Joe Biden reports its recommendations on how to curb gun violence.The gun lobby will be a key player in that fight and is increasingly seen as tightly aligned with the GOP — a view heightened by LaPierre’s combative address.It remains to be seen how that might affect the influence of the NRA, which easily swept back efforts to enact new federal firearms restrictions after mass shootings in the last decade. But the murder of 20 first-graders and six staff members at the Newton, Conn., school on Dec. 14 has brought new energy to the long-stymied gun control movement.

Freddie,Freddie Mac, MGIC Work Out Business Obligations in Secondary Market, Servicing Share Agents & Brokers Attorneys & Title Companies Fannie Mae Freddie Mac Investors Lenders & Servicers Mortgage Insurance Service Providers 2012-10-01 Krista Franks Brock “”MGIC Investment Corporation””:http://www.mgic.com/ is on its way to resolving stipulations set forth by “”Freddie Mac””:http://www.freddiemac.com/ in order for the insurance company to continue issuing insurance. MGIC announced that Freddie Mac reduced the amount MGIC Investment Corporation must pay to its subsidiary from $200 million to $100 million. The GSE also extended the deadline for this contribution from the end of September to the end of December. Additionally, Freddie Mac approved MGIC Indemnity Corporation (MIC), a subsidiary of MGIC, to write insurance in 16 jurisdictions besides Wisconsin “”that have specific regulatory capital requirements when MGIC is not able to write new business in a jurisdiction because MGIC would not meet those requirements,”” according to MGIC’s announcement. MIC is approved to write new business through the end of 2013 in areas where MGIC does not meet the necessary capital reserve requirements. This is an extension of its previous approval through the end of this year. The revision of MGIC’s obligations may be seen as a step toward reconciliation following a dispute in the summer over aggregate loss limit under certain policies. MGIC “”announced in May””:http://www.dsnews.com/articles/mgic-files-lawsuit-against-freddie-mac-and-fhfa-over-pool-dispute-2012-05-18 that it had filed a lawsuit over the issue.””I am pleased with the spirit of cooperation all parties have sown in moving forward to reach this point,”” said Curt Culver, CEO of MGIC Investment and MGIC. Freddie Mac’s approval of MIC may be revoked at any time and is contingent on Freddie Mac and MGIC reaching an agreement regarding their pool insurance dispute by the end of this month and confirmation from the state of Wisconsin that MIC’s capital will support MGIC policies “”without segregation of those obligations.”” “”While there can be no guaranty that the open matters that remain can be successfully resolved, I am hopeful we will continue to make progress,”” Culver stated. With $166.7 billion in insurance on 1 million mortgages as of the second quarter of this year, MGIC is the nation’s largest private mortgage insurer. October 1, 2012 391 Views
Agents & Brokers Attorneys & Title Companies Bureau of Labor Statistics Census Bureau Confidence Credit Standards Existing-Home Sales Home Prices Home Sales Homebuilders Investors Lenders & Servicers Mark Lieberman National Association of Home Builders National Association of Realtors Processing Residential Construction Service Providers 2013-04-15 Mark Lieberman April 15, 2013 440 Views Weak Prices Drag Down Builder Confidence in April in Data, Government, Origination, Secondary Market, Servicing Share With the price of a new home barely above year-ago levels, builder confidence fell for the third straight month in April, dropping two points to 42, the lowest level since October, the “”National Association of Home Builders (NAHB)””:http://www.nahb.org/news_details.aspx?sectionID=134&newsID=16244 reported Monday. Economists had expected the Housing Market Index (HMI), the measure of confidence, to improve to 45 from March’s reading of 44.[IMAGE]It was the second straight month the index fell when economists had expected it to improve.The median price of a new single family home, according to the Census Bureau and HUD, has fallen for three of the last five months and in “”January””:https://themreport.com/articles/new-home-sales-jump-to-6-1-2-yr-high-2013-02-26 dropped $20,500 (7.9 percent) the steepest month-over-month decline since October 2010. The median price of a new home recovered somewhat in “”February””:https://themreport.com/articles/new-home-sales-in-steepest-drop-two-years-2013-03-26 (the last data report), increasing $7,200, but was just 2.9 percent of the median price in February 2012, the slowest annual change since prices were down 3.2 percent year-over-year from June 2011 to June 2012.The drop in the overall index was driven by a sharp decline in the gauge of buyer traffic, which fell four points to 30, its lowest level since September. The measure of current sales fell two points to 45, the lowest level since October. The outlook for sales in the next six months improved three points to 53, its highest level since February 2007. While the overall index for March was unchanged from the original report, the future sales and buyer traffic components were each revised downward by one point. The buyer traffic measure has fallen six months in the last three months, losing one-sixth of its value in that period.The drop in the HMI, while surprising economists, has to be a blow to the Nationals Association of Realtors (NAR), which has argued the drop in the inventory of existing single-family homes for sale is due in part to the falloff in construction of new homes.NAHB Chair Rick Judson explained tight credit conditions–affecting both builders and buyers–contributed to the drop in confidence.[COLUMN_BREAK]””Many builders are expressing frustration over being unable to respond to the rising demand for new homes due to difficulties in obtaining construction credit, overly restrictive mortgage lending rules and construction costs that are increasing at a faster pace than appraised values,”” Judson said in a statement. “”While sales conditions are generally improving, these challenges are holding back new building and job creation.””But, despite Judson’s comment, the drop in the index comes after the Bureau of Labor Statistics (BLS) reported an 18,000 increase in all construction jobs in March to 5,802,000, the highest level since August 2009. In March, according to the BLS, the number of residential construction jobs improved by 2,300 to 578,100, the highest level since May 2010 and the number of residential specialty contractor jobs increased 12,500 to 1,543,700, the highest level since August 2009.Tighter inventories of new homes had been expected to improve confidence, but builder attitudes have also been weighed down by prices of new single-family homes. The last government report on new home sales showed a 4.4 month supply of new homes for sale, an improvement from the 4.2 month supply in January, but still the second weakest reading since July 2005. The report also showed builders completed 574,000 single family homes in February, 163,000 more than they sold.Builder confidence fell in all four Census led by an eight point drop in the Midwest to 41. Confidence fell four points in the Northeast to 34, three points in the West to 52 and two points in the South to 40.With the April report, the total index remained below 50–the tipping point between a positive and negative market assessment–for the 84th straight month. The last time the HMI was above 50 was April 2006 when the reading was 51 as the index was falling. NAHB began the index in 1985. It peaked at 78 in December 1998. The dip in the current sales should be reflected in the government’s new homes sales report to be issued on April 23 and the drop in confidence in the report on housing permits and starts out Tuesday.The index, built based on surveys conducted jointly by the NAHB and Wells Fargo, gauges builder perceptions of current single-family home sales and sales expectations for the next six months as “”good,”” “”fair”” or “”poor.”” The survey also asks builders to rate traffic of prospective buyers as “”high to very high,”” “”average”” or “”low to very low.”” Scores from each component are then used to calculate a seasonally adjusted index where any number over 50 indicates that more builders view sales conditions as good than poor. _Hear Mark Lieberman every Friday on P.O.T.U.S. radio, Sirius-XM 124, at 6:20 a.m. and again at 9:20 a.m. Eastern time._
