All Blacks too strong for error-ridden Springbok challenge in Christchurch

first_imgSaturday Sep 17, 2016 All Blacks too strong for error-ridden Springbok challenge in Christchurch New Zealand were too good for a spirited Springbok challenge on Saturday, picking up an emphatic 41-13 victory after leading just 15-10 at halftime. The final score was the third heaviest losing margin in 92 years of Tests between the two sides.  The home side scored six tries, with hooker Dane Coles playing provider on three occasions, and Israel Dagg, Julian Savea, Ben Smith, Ardie Savea, Sam Whitelock, and TJ Perenara all crossing.The Springboks has started well through a very nicely taken Bryan Haban try from a neat bit of play by number eight Warren Whiteley, but straight from the restart flyhalf Elton Jantjies dropped the ball, the All Blacks scored, and it all went downhill from there.“We scored a great try and just after the kick-off we let New Zealand in,” Bok head coach Allister Coetzee said. “Those are soft moments. They capitalised on that. That’s the difference between the two teams at this point in time,” he said.“They know when to play, where to play, without making mistakes.“Full credit to New Zealand, their systems are working well. The transition from World Cup-winning team to the next has been very, very good, unlike in our case,” he added.The error rate of both sides was not great but the visitors made many, and it was the All Blacks who made the most of opportunities and easily secured the Freedom Cup, a trophy that is contested between the two rivals.Below is a short wrap, and you can view longer highlights on page two hereThe head coaches reflect on the match, and we hear from Dane Coles and skipper Kieran Read:ADVERTISEMENT Posted By: rugbydump Share Send Thanks Sorry there has been an error All Blacks Related Articles 40 WEEKS AGO North vs South should be a permanent fixture… 40 WEEKS AGO Barrett could easily end up on All Blacks… 42 WEEKS AGO Future All Blacks?

MOSC hosts TAKE3 on stage

first_img By Michael Bauer – April 27, 2021 MOSC hosts TAKE3 on stage Facebook Facebook WhatsApp Pinterest MIDLAND The Midland-Odessa Symphony and Chorale will welcome the group TAKE3 to the stage for a performance, at 7:30 p.m. Saturday at the Wagner Noël Performing Arts Center.TAKE3 is a well-known musical trio, featuring violinist Lindsay Deutsch, pianist Jason Stoll, and cellist Mikala Schmitz.TAKE3  blends a rigorous classical music background and infuses it with rock-star charisma.The trio has toured around the country, performing with orchestras in most of the 50 states.“We’re really excited to have TAKE3 join us for our Pops Concert,” Midland-Odessa Symphony and Chorale Executive Director Ethan Wills said. “We have another pops concert coming up after that. It’s a really dynamic trio with a huge stage presence that can really get crowds excited and they blend classical and rock and pop, big genre.”Because there’s going to be a blend of different musical genres, Wills said there will be something for everyone in the audience to enjoy.“It’s great,” Wills said. “That’s one of the things with the Midland-Odessa symphony chorale. I’ve noticed that our patrons tend to box themselves in and say, ‘I really enjoy masterworks or I really enjoy pops performances’ and that’s interesting to me considering that there are so many sub-genres out there.”Members of TAKE3 have also made an impact on the music scene as soloists, touring the world and recording tracks for film and television.Deutsch has been a featured soloist on the Netflix series “The Witcher.”“They have a myriad of performance capabilities,” Wills said. “They’ll do anything from Beatles repertoire to famous pop music from the 60s to today. Lindsay was a violinist on the Netflix series ‘The Witcher,’ so she’s done a bunch of stuff for that. What they have in their toolbox to pull out and perform is endless which is really exciting. What’s cool about that is that we catered to our audiences really well and we can put on a show that’s entertaining.”Masks will be required and seating for the event will be socially distanced and limited.“The Wagner Noël Performing Arts Center has decided that they’re still at 50 percent capacity for the remainder of our symphony season,” Wills said. “That means what we’ve been doing since January, because we were at 30 percent in the early winter but we’ve since moved to 50 percent and that’s our max.”Tickets are $30-$50. Students are $17. Tickets can be purchased at mosc.org or by calling 800-514-3849 or at the Wagner Noël box office from 1-5 p.m., Monday-Friday.The Saturday performance was originally scheduled as “Imagine-The Music of the Beatles,” however that will be rescheduled to a later date, according to Wills.If you goWhat: Midland-Odessa Symphony and Chorale TAKE3.When: 7:30 p.m. Saturday.Where: Wagner Noël Performing Arts Center.How much: $30-$50 (students $17).Midland-Odessa Symphony and Chorale WhatsApp Pinterest Twitter Local News Twitter Previous articleStudy underway at Starlight Therapeutic Riding CenterNext articleLETTER TO THE EDITOR: Quiroz is good for MCH board Michael Bauerlast_img read more

HUD has already granted a 90-day moratorium on foreclosures for FHA-insured properties in disaster-affected areas.“We offer loan forbearance and loan modifications for borrowers struggling to make payments in disaster-affected areas,” he added.Specific mortgage products for those impacted by disasters—as some homeowners whose properties were destroyed or damaged may be eligible for 100 percent financing through HUD’s Section 203(h) program.According to Secretary Carson, this will enable them to rebuild or buy another home. In addition, homeowners can use Section 203(k) FHA insurance to refinance an existing mortgage into a new mortgage that covers the cost of repairs. About Author: Nicole Caspersonlast_img read more

Extending the National Flood Insurance Program

first_img flood NAHB NAR nfip 2019-06-10 Seth Welborn Governmental Measures Target Expanded Access to Affordable Housing 2 days ago Governmental Measures Target Expanded Access to Affordable Housing 2 days ago The Best Markets For Residential Property Investors 2 days ago Financial Services Committee Chair Maxine Waters and Ranking Member Patrick McHenry have reached an agreement on a five-year reauthorization of the National Flood Insurance Program (NFIP) through Sept. 30, 2024.The National Association of Homebuilders (NAHB) and the National Association of Realtors (NAR) have both expressed their satisfaction with the deal.“The National Association of Realtors applauds Chairwoman Waters and Ranking Member McHenry for working towards a bipartisan, long-term solution for the National Flood Insurance Program,” said NAR President John Smaby. “This legislation addresses many critical NAR priorities, including long-term reauthorization, strengthening mapping and mitigation, and facilitating a more robust private insurance market. While we continue reviewing this bill, NAR thanks the Chairwoman and Ranking Member for their genuine efforts to move comprehensive reauthorization legislation forward.”“The NFIP has played a critical role in determining the use and development of flood-prone areas and managing the risk of flooding for residential properties,” said the NAHB in a statement. “A strong NFIP helps ensure that the housing industry can provide safe, decent and affordable housing to consumers under the direction of local jurisdictions.According to the NAHB, Waters and McHenry’s agreement would:Increase funding for flood risk mapping and mitigation.Provide premium credits for not currently recognized mitigation activity.Create a new zone to account for levee-protected areas.Establish umbrella coverage options for multifamily development.At a recent National Flood Conference, Waters discussed the benefits of the NFIP, stating the the program was “at risk.””The NFIP makes flood insurance available to millions of homeowners, renters, and business owners and also helps those policyholders to reduce their risk by providing flood mapping, floodplain management, and mitigation services,” she said. “These activities help local communities and individuals prepare for the financial impact of flooding, whether it is caused by heavy rainfall that affects families living in the Midwest or life-threatening storms that pummel the millions of homes and businesses along the coasts.”The Five Star Institute will host its Disaster Preparedness Symposium on July 31 in New Orleans, Louisiana. Natural disasters impact investors, service providers, mortgage servicers, government agencies, legal professionals, lenders, property preservation companies, and—most importantly—homeowners. The 2019 Five Star Disaster Preparedness Symposium will include critical conversations on the response, reaction, and assistance, to ensure the industry is ready to lend the proper support the next time a natural disaster strikes.  Print This Post Extending the National Flood Insurance Program June 10, 2019 2,487 Views Demand Propels Home Prices Upward 2 days ago Home / Daily Dose / Extending the National Flood Insurance Program Related Articles in Daily Dose, Featured, Loss Mitigation, Market Studies, News About Author: Seth Welborn Demand Propels Home Prices Upward 2 days agocenter_img Subscribe Servicers Navigate the Post-Pandemic World 2 days ago Servicers Navigate the Post-Pandemic World 2 days ago The Week Ahead: Nearing the Forbearance Exit 2 days ago Data Provider Black Knight to Acquire Top of Mind 2 days ago Share Save Seth Welborn is a Reporter for DS News and MReport.
