November 5, 2018 at 7:59 pm November 6, 2018 at 11:16 am November 5, 2018 at 4:36 pm I am so much looking forward to seeing the wall for the first time. Not sure what my reaction or emotions will be seeing the names of those 58,000 plus names that went over there, but weren’t able to come home with the rest of us that walked that soil, waded those rice paddies, flew those skies, and navigated those waterways protecting the freedom that we all appreciate today! Those soldiers and their families gave it all, for all of us!!center_img I have seen this wall before, back when my mother was still living, and we drove to see it. I can’t remember exactly what year it was, but it was a long long time ago, maybe even 25 years ago, possibly, not sure. We drove out to the area near the Orlando Fashion Square Mall back behind there, where it used to be a Navy base, I believe. This is where the wall was set up, and we walked all along back and forth, and I remember how upsetting it was to me, to see the visual images of all the young military member’s names that were killed, and the toll that war takes, and the families left behind forever here on earth. I knew only one boy that was killed in Vietnam, personally. I should say, man, not boy, as he was a man, and a very honorable one. He rode our school bus, as he was a senior kid, and I was much younger than he was. I have written about the mean kids that rode our school bus, but he was not one of them. No, he was mild natured, smiled a lot, and easy going. He had beautiful olive colored naturally tan colored skin, beautiful shiny black hair, and was somewhat chunky, weight-wise. My description is, think Elvis….if I am not getting him mixed up with his brother. It has been a long time ago. He was the nicest guy ever. He got off the bus with his siblings about a mile from my bus stop. I didn’t really know what happened to him until years later, and I found out he went off to war, after high school graduation, and drove over a land mine, after only being there in Vietnam for 13 days. He has a daughter that he never got to see, I have learned from reading on the internet about him. I don’t know how I will react, if I go view the wall, and see his name there on the wall, because I remember him from our school bus route, as a much older student than myself. I am certain I will be upset, as that is the way I am. Holy cow, the day is here, ELECTION DAY! Talk about anxiety! Reply Reply You have entered an incorrect email address!

I am so thankful, and thankful that you will get to see this traveling Vietnam Memorial Wall. I am certain you will be emotionally moved. I know I was emotionally moved, when I saw the wall, years ago, when I was much younger. Also, I want to thank ALL our veterans for their service to our country. I am so excited about this memorial wall coming to our own city. My husband and I are planning on sitting on the sidewalk, right here on Martin Street, right by our house, in our folding chairs, and watching and welcoming the wall’s arrival and procession tomorrow morning after it leaves the airport on 441. History being made here in Apopka! And also, thank you Apopka Voice, as I didn’t know the wall’s processional was coming right here by our home! I want to thank the Apopka Rotary Club for making this event happen. Being a baby boomer myself, the Vietnam War was my generation’s war. I still hold out hope, that one day, Apopka will create a Veteran’s Park. Our veterans deserve the honor. Michael, if you are ever up around Leesburg, just find Leesburg City Hall building, and look north, about one block, at the park around the lake, and there is a really nice veteran’s park there that you should see, if you haven’t seen it already. The Veteran’s Memorial Park at Fountain Lake. They have multiple memorials to the various wars, and their own engraved wall with veteran’s names, plus bricks engraved in honor of all veterans, both living and deceased, and other engraved bricks to honor anyone that you want to honor. I purchased several engraved bricks there years ago. Check it out, if you are there, in that area. They are adding to the various war memorials all the time, even though some local critics thought that they were going over-board with too many war displays in the park…..the veterans won that battle over the local critics, is my understanding of the issue….lol LEAVE A REPLY Cancel reply 5 COMMENTS The Anatomy of Fear Support conservation and fish with NEW Florida specialty license plate Save my name, email, and website in this browser for the next time I comment.last_img read more

How the Coronavirus Will Impact Regulations

first_img  Print This Post in Daily Dose, Featured, News, Webinars How the Coronavirus Will Impact Regulations Industry leaders discussed the impact COVID-19 could have on federal regulations, foreclosure moratoriums, REO, tech, and more during DS News’ latest webinar, “The Regulatory Ripple Effects.”The webinar, sponsored by Altisource, featured Travis Britsch, VP of Auctions, Hubzu; Trevor Hall, Director of Foreclosure Auction Services, Hubzu; Candace Russell, VP of Post Sale Activities in Default Servicing, Carrington Mortgage Services; and Marrisa Yaker, Managing Attorney, Padgett Law Group.Yaker began the conversation with an overview of policies by the Federal Housing Administration (FHA) and the Federal Housing Finance Agency (FHFA). She added that the FHFA recently announced that foreclosure and eviction moratoriums have been extended until August 31, 2020.Britsch discussed the history of foreclosure sales, saying sales were normally conducted by a sheriff or a “guy in a hoodie,” with the process having little to no technologyPrior to COVID-19, he said most servicers are using on a handful of default servicing platforms and there is no single centralized system of record across the U.S.—not even from county to county—to track foreclosures.He added that since the Great Recession, several professional auction marketing companies have extended from REO into foreclosure sales. He said about half of the state now allow a professional auctioneer to market and conduct the foreclosure sale.Hall added that since the coronavirus, there are signs enforcing the 6-foot physical separation between bidders, auctioneers and bidders are wearing facial masks, there is contact-less checkout, and there are specific time slots to reduce crowds.Some of the technology that may come of the virus included simulcast auctions, electronic funds to eliminate cashiers checks, software for auctioneers, trustees, and bidders, and online only auctions.If you missed the webinar, follow the link to hear a recording of the conversation.

NLA slams CAB report

first_imgHome » News » Housing Market » NLA slams CAB report previous nextRegulation & LawNLA slams CAB reportThe NLA has criticised a new study for giving the perception that private housing is ‘insecure and unsuitable’, while also expressing concern at plans to license landlords.PROPERTYdrum1st June 20150554 Views A new report which claims that landlords earn in the region of £5.6 billion a year from unsafe homes which fail to meet legal standards has been slammed by the National Landlords Association (NLA).The Citizens Advice study report, A Nation of Renters, says 740,000 households in England now reside in privately rented homes which present a severe threat to tenants’ health from problems like rat infestations and damp.Gillian Guy, Chief executive of Citizens Advice, said, “Rogue landlords are putting profits before safety.”The Government is planning to give councils new powers to tackle unscrupulous landlords which own homes with a category 1 hazard, as part of number of proposals to be tabled in a new Immigration Bill. The details of the Bill, which will be a central part of the new Government programme will be announced in the Queen’s speech this week.“The Government has rightly said it wants to tackle the country’s housing crisis – it must make targeting dodgy landlords, giving tenants better rights and driving up standards a major part of that effort,” Guy added.But while recognising that bad practice does exist in private housing, “and that it needs to be stamped out”, Richard Lambert (left), Chief Executive Officer at the NLA, criticised the report for using what he described as “loose definitions to compound a perception that private housing is insecure and unsuitable across the board.. He also said that it ignores the weight of evidence to the contrary.He commented, “The English Housing Survey finds that the average tenancy now lasts just shy of four years, and that only seven per cent of tenancies are ended by landlords. Our own research shows that 86 per cent of families consider their properties as their ‘home’ and that 62 per cent do not see renting as a barrier to family life. Furthermore, just 0.5 per cent of families who rent privately say they’ve had to move because their landlord increased their rent.”Lambert believes that what this shows is that private housing is far from the CAB’s assertion of a market that is ‘failing systematically to deliver what consumers want’.He added, “Those who suffer at the hands of the criminal and negligent minority do so because of widespread failure of local councils to commit resources to enforcing the laws that already exist against poor landlords and criminal standards, and because of the failure of successive Governments to incentivise the building of much needed homes that would relieve the pressure on the whole housing market.”Despite its displeasure with the CAB report, the NLA has welcomed the new Immigration Bill which will, among other things, allow landlords to evict illegal migrants more quickly and roll out the Right to Rent scheme nationwide. But Lambert did express concern at plans to introduce a new mandatory licensing regime for landlords.He added, “The introduction of a new mandatory licensing regime brings up some concern. We are therefore urgently seeking clarification on whether this would be new policy or related to the current licensing schemes.”Commenting on the Prime Minster David Cameron’s pledge to licence landlords, David Cox (right), Managing Director at the Association of Residential Letting Agents (ARLA), said, “We are pleased to see the Government listened to our Housing Manifesto calls for greater regulation of the private rented sector (PRS). However, whilst this is a step in the right direction, it’s not the full solution to the problem of rogue agents plaguing the market.“We urge the Government to take this opportunity and impose more appropriate, overarching regulation on the whole lettings industry. We look forward to hearing the full details of the plans in the Queen’s Speech.”NLA CAB report tenants rights dodgy landlords June 1, 2015The NegotiatorWhat’s your opinion?

US 6th Fleet staging ballistic missile defense drill off UK

first_img August 24, 2017 View post tag: ballistic missile defense Authorities Share this article View post tag: MTMD View post tag: US Navycenter_img As announced last year by the U.S. Naval Forces Europe commander, Admiral Michelle Howard, the U.S. 6th Fleet will be staging a ballistic missile defense exercise in Scottish waters between September and October.Named Formidable Shield 17, the exercise is taking place at the U.K. Ministry of Defense’s Hebrides Range located on the Western Isles of Scotland.The purpose of Formidable Shield is to improve allied interoperability in a live-fire integrated air and missile defense (IAMD) environment, using NATO command and control reporting structures. Canada, France, Germany, Italy, the Netherlands, Spain, the United Kingdom, and the United States are scheduled to participate in this exercise.This exercise will bring together ships from seven nations to track and engage three ballistic missile and 14 subsonic or two supersonic anti-ship cruise missile targets in an operationally realistic scenario to flex their capability and high end interoperability.“In order to increase our capabilities and meet the challenges we face, we must continue to seek out opportunities to test our forces with high-end training,” Admiral Howard said in September 2016. “Last year a number of Alliance members participated in the Maritime Theater Missile Defense’s at-Sea demonstration on the Hebrides Range off the Scottish Coast which featured the first international ship queuing for ballistic-missile defense shots by U.S. Navy destroyers.”On October 20, 2015, US Navy’s Arleigh Burke-class guided-missile destroyer USS Ross (DDG 71) successfully intercepted a ballistic missile in the North Atlantic Ocean during the Maritime Theater Missile Defense (MTMD) Forum’s At Sea Demonstration (ASD)..That was the first time a Standard Missile-3 (SM-3) Block IA guided interceptor was fired on a non-U.S. range and the first intercept of a ballistic missile threat in the European theater.
