ICC requests Nigeria to arrest Sudans President during visit to Abuja

In March 2009, ICC judges issued arrest warrants against Mr. Al-Bashir for crimes allegedly committed in the Sudanese region of Darfur, where an estimated 300,000 people have died since 2003 due to fighting between rebel groups and Government forces and their allies, militiamen known as the Janjaweed.Mr. Al-Bashir was reportedly in Nigeria for an African health summit that concluded today. Nigeria is a State party to the Rome Statute that established the ICC, and has the obligation to execute the Court’s orders, according to a news release issued by the Court.Under the Rome Statute, States that fail to comply with a request to cooperate with the Court may be referred to the Assembly of States Parties or to the Security Council.Since the arrest warrants were issued, Mr. Al-Bashir has travelled to a number of African countries that are parties to the Rome Statute, all of whom have failed to arrest the Sudanese leader and surrender him to the Court. Located in The Hague, in the Netherlands, the ICC is an independent, permanent court that tries persons accused of the most serious crimes of international concern – namely genocide, crimes against humanity and war crimes – if national authorities with jurisdiction are unwilling or unable to do so genuinely.The Darfur region of Sudan is one of eight situations currently under investigation by the ICC. The others are northern Uganda, the Central African Republic (CAR), the Democratic Republic of the Congo (DRC), Kenya, Libya, Mali and Côte d’Ivoire. read more

UN humanitarian chief sees firsthand harrowing conditions of refugees at SyriaJordan borders

“We [had to fly] in by helicopter so we could see over the whole area and in between two berms are tens of thousands of tents quite sparsely populated compared to a normal organized refugee camp,” the Under-Secretary-General for Humanitarian Affairs and Emergency Relief Coordinator Stephen O’Brien told UN Radio during a telephone call from Jordan. “You have to imagine… completely out in the middle of desert… in very, very hot [conditions], baking in the tents,” he added. The UN humanitarian chief is in Jordan in relation to that country’s response to the war in Syria, which has seen hundreds of thousands of Syrians flee the conflict into Jordan, including some 75,000 people stranded between the two countries in an area made up of earthen embankments and known as the ‘berm.’ The living conditions there are dire with no access to basic resources such as food and water. Jordan, which had already welcomed more than 700,000 refugees from Syria, sealed the area due to security concerns following an attack in June on Jordanian military personnel – before the border closure, UN agencies and partners regularly delivered supplies from the Jordanian side to the people stranded in a ‘no man’s land.’ So far on his visit, Mr. O’Brien has met with senior government officials to discuss options, keeping in mind humanitarian principles, to help those stuck at the berm. Under-Secretary-General for Humanitarian Affairs and Emergency Relief Coordinator Stephen O’Brien (right), during a visit to northern Jordan. Photo: OCHA “Our discussions focused principally on national security concerns and on finding solutions to the Syrians stranded at the north-eastern border,” he said later in a media encounter in the capital, Amman. “For the people at the berm, the Jordanian authorities have facilitated and supported the delivery of humanitarian assistance.” He noted that that his discussions with the authorities also centred on ensuring that UN agencies and partners from humanitarian and non-governmental organizations which will work in the region are able to do so safely. Referring to Jordan’s provision of more than 20,000 work permits to refugees so that they are able to earn a livelihood, the UN humanitarian chief underscored that this generosity needs to be recognized. “Jordan serves as an island of stability, hosting the international community, contributing to and enabling us to respond to the hundreds of thousands of vulnerable people fleeing the conflict in Syria,” the UN official said in his media encounter. Mr. O’Brien also said that the United Nations will be hosting a summit on refugees and migrants on 19 September at its headquarters in New York, and that will be followed by another meeting hosted by President Barack Obama of the United States where world leaders will discuss the issue. He also expressed his hope that there will be an understanding among the world’s nations on getting support to the refugees and those displaced due to such terrible manmade conflicts around the globe. read more

Commentary Cincinnati Bengals can remedy inconsistent season Sunday

In an up-and-down season, the Cincinnati Bengals have shown flashes of brilliance only to be followed by disappointing losses to teams with losing records. They can only hope the trend ends Sunday. On Sunday, the Bengals (4-5) routed the Super Bowl champion New York Giants, showing the football world what Cincinnati’s young athletes can do when their execution is on point. Quarterback Andy Dalton had a career day, throwing four touchdowns and ending a streak in which he had thrown at least one interception in every game this year. The Giants’ talented defensive line was not successful in pressuring Dalton and failed to register a sack. As a result, Dalton, the AFC Offensive Player of the Week, picked apart a defense that had been carrying New York in recent weeks. Meanwhile, Cincinnati’s defense went to work on Giants quarterback Eli Manning, forcing him into a day to forget and making the MVP candidate look discombobulated and frustrated. The 31-13 triumph was more than Bengals fans could have asked for. To put that win into perspective, the San Francisco 49ers are widely perceived as being a championship contender. The Giants embarrassed San Francisco at home, 26-3, four weeks earlier on Oct. 14. Immediately after, experts began to doubt the 49ers championship pedigree while declaring that the Giants, the NFL’s 2011 champs, were still the team to beat in the NFC. When Cincinnati dominates the Giants the same way New York handled the 49ers, it raises eyebrows around the league. In addition to the margin of victory and level of competition, there were a number of other positive elements of last week’s win. Bengals running back Cedric Peerman had a productive game, proving he is worthy of sharing the load with fellow running back BenJarvus Green-Ellis. And perhaps the best bit of news is that the Bengals might have found a legitimate threat to play opposite from wide receiver A.J. Green, the league leader in receiving touchdowns with nine. Rookie wide receiver Mohamed Sanu made an athletic grab for a first down on his first catch of the game against the Giants, establishing Dalton’s confidence in him. Dalton later found Sanu in the end zone for his first career receiving touchdown. The 6-2, 210-pound Sanu, who threw a 73-yard touchdown pass against the Redskins, continued to put his versatility on display, picking up a third down lined up at running back. Now it’s time for Cincinnati to come back down to earth. They cannot afford to overlook their next opponent. On paper, the Bengals have a huge advantage in their next matchup. The Kansas City Chiefs (1-8) have had just about everything go wrong for them this year. They’ve been outscored by double digits six times already. They have fluctuated between two quarterbacks who can neither stay healthy nor perform at a consistent level – Matt Cassel and Brady Quinn have six touchdown passes and 15 interceptions between them. Their lone bright spot is in a rushing attack that ranks fourth in the NFL. Look for Kansas City to feed the ball to featured back Jamaal Charles in order to avoid exposing their quarterback to a Cincinnati pass rush that has been on a tear in recent weeks. Fortunately for the Chiefs, their biggest weakness on defense is against the run. Meanwhile, the Bengals are averaging only 3.7 yards a carry and rank 25th overall in rushing. This means that Kansas City, ranked eighth against the pass, can focus on shutting down Cincinnati’s greatest strength – an aerial attack with budding stars. Moreover, the Chiefs might have recently turned a corner. On Monday, the Chiefs played the Pittsburgh Steelers and would have won if not for a few unfortunate breaks, some of which were the result of questionable officiating. More importantly, Kansas City showed signs of pride and grit. On a number of big plays (though two of them were overturned by penalties) the Chiefs celebrated and even taunted Pittsburgh. In no way did they seem to be shrinking from the challenge of playing a team regularly in championship contention. Lastly, the Chiefs’ Arrowhead Stadium is normally one of the most disruptive atmospheres for visiting teams, though such has not been the case this year. But the opportunity to play a team as inconsistent as Cincinnati might just inspire the home crowd enough to throw the Bengals off their game. After starting 3-1, the Bengals were upset by three teams with losing records: the Dolphins (1-3 at the time), the Browns (0-5 at the time) and the Steelers (2-3 at the time). In order to make the playoffs, Cincinnati simply cannot lose another game against an inferior opponent. The Bengals are slated to play at Kansas City on Sunday at 1 p.m. read more

Boldt will likely advance to general against Madore

first_imgClark County Commissioner Marc Boldt has seemingly secured his second-place finish in the primary election, as updated results released Thursday showed him with an extended lead over Democrat Roman Battan.“It looks pretty good,” Boldt said Thursday from Stevenson, where he was attending a Washington Association of Counties meeting. Boldt serves as the organization’s vice president.Boldt, 57, said he’s thankful for the support of voters and looking forward to facing Vancouver Republican David Madore, 61, in the Nov. 6 general election.“I was telling a few people the other night that I never thought a silver medal was the best, but it’s pretty good to have right now,” Boldt said.According to the latest results, Madore has a 487-vote lead over Boldt, a Hockinson Republican.Boldt has a 212-vote edge over Battan, a Camas resident in his first political race.An additional 10,649 ballots were counted Thursday. Of those, 2,909 ballots were from voters in District 2 who voted in the commissioner race.Auditor Greg Kimsey said all but about 3,000 ballots have been counted, and not all of those ballots are from District 2. Kimsey said 1,500 ballots will be counted Friday, Aug. 10, but the remaining ballots will take a few weeks to sort out because they have been challenged or they need to be duplicated because they cannot be read by the scanner.Battan, 31, said Thursday that he’ll be eager to see the final results, but acknowledged “at this point, it doesn’t really look good.”last_img read more

WATCH LIVE Trump Delivers 2019 State Of The Union

first_imgPresident Donald Trump is scheduled to deliver his 2019 State of the Union address at 8 p.m. CST on Tuesday, Feb. 5. Watch live in the player above, followed by a Democratic response delivered by former Georgia gubernatorial candidate Stacey Abrams. The bitter partisanship of the past two years was on full display Tuesday just hours before President Donald Trump was to call for optimism and unity in his State of the Union address.Senate Minority Leader Chuck Schumer of New York seems to have triggered the latest Trump twitter outburst when he said on the Senate floor that the president talks about unity in his annual addresses to the nation but “spends the other 364 days of the year dividing us.” He accused Trump of “blatant hypocrisy.”Minutes later, Trump tweeted that Schumer hadn’t even seen the speech and was “just upset that he didn’t win the Senate, after spending a fortune.”Skepticism was already expected from both sides of the aisle for Trump’s televised address to lawmakers and the nation. Democrats, emboldened after the midterm elections and the recent shutdown fight, see little evidence that the president is willing to compromise. Even Trump’s staunchest allies know that bipartisan rhetoric read off of a teleprompter is usually undermined by scorching tweets and unpredictable policy maneuvers.The deeply personal attacks show the challenge for Trump as he attempts a reset with Congress. Still, the fact that his advisers feel a need to try a different approach is a tacit acknowledgement that the president’s standing is weakened as he begins his third year in office.The shutdown left some Republicans frustrated over his insistence on a border wall, something they warned him the new Democratic House majority would not bend on. Trump’s approval rating during the shutdown dipped to 34 percent, down from 42 percent a month earlier, according to a recent survey conducted by The Associated Press-NORC Center for Public Affairs Research.White House press secretary Sarah Sanders indicated the president would highlight what he sees as achievements and downplay discord.“You’re going to continue see the president push for policies that help continue the economic boom,” Sanders said Monday night while appearing on “Hannity” on Fox News. “You’re also going to see the president call on Congress and say, ‘Look, we can either work together and get great things done or we can fight each other and get nothing done.’ And frankly, the American people deserve better than that.”But Washington’s most recent debate offered few signs of cooperation between Trump and Democrats. Under pressure from conservative backers, Trump refused to sign a government funding bill that did not include money for his long-sought border wall. With hundreds of thousands of Americans missing paychecks, Trump ultimately agreed to reopen the government for three weeks to allow negotiations on border security to continue.With the new Feb. 15 funding deadline looming, Trump is expected to use his address to outline his demands, which still include funding for a wall along the U.S.-Mexico border. He’s teased the possibility of declaring a national emergency to secure wall funding if Congress doesn’t act, though it appeared unlikely he would take that step Tuesday night. Advisers have also been reviewing options to secure some funding without making such a declaration.“You’ll hear the State of the Union, and then you’ll see what happens right after the State of the Union,” Trump told reporters.Sen. John Cornyn, R-Texas, said he remains hopeful Congress can resolve the dispute.“Democrats can call it a fence, the president can all it a wall and then we can call it a day, which I think is one way of skinning the cat,” said Cornyn, who is a close adviser to Senate Majority Leader Mitch McConnell.The president’s address marks the first time he is speaking before a Congress that is not fully under Republican control. House Speaker Nancy Pelosi, who won plaudits from Democrats for her hardline negotiating tactics during the shutdown, will be seated behind the president — a visual reminder of Trump’s political opposition.In a letter Monday night to House Democrats, Pelosi wrote that she hopes “we will hear a commitment from the President on issues that have bipartisan support in the Congress and the Country, such as lowering the price of prescription drugs and rebuilding America’s infrastructure.”In the audience will be several Democrats running to challenge Trump in 2020, including Sens. Kamala Harris of California, Cory Booker of New Jersey, Elizabeth Warren of Massachusetts and Kirsten Gillibrand of New York.Another Democratic star, Stacey Abrams, will deliver the party’s response to Trump. Abrams narrowly lost her bid in November to become Georgia’s first black governor, and party leaders are aggressively recruiting her to run for Senate.Schumer earlier previewed Democrats’ message for countering Trump, declaring Monday, “The number one reason the state of the union has such woes is the president.”While Trump was still putting the final touches on the speech Tuesday, he was expected to use some of his televised address to showcase a growing economy. Despite the shutdown, the U.S. economy added a robust 304,000 jobs in January, marking 100 straight months of job growth. That’s the longest such period on record.Trump and his top aides have also hinted that he is likely to use the address to announce a major milestone in the fight against the Islamic State group in Syria. Despite the objections of some advisers, Trump announced in December that he was withdrawing U.S. forces in Syria.In a weekend interview with CBS, Trump said efforts to defeat the IS group were “at 99 percent right now. We’ll be at 100.”The U.S. military says the Islamic State group now controls about 5 square kilometers (less than 2 square miles) in the villages of the Middle Euphrates River Valley in Syria, where the bulk of the fighters are concentrated. Including the large swath of desert around the villages, the militant group controls more than 50 square kilometers (20 square miles). The figures do not include IS militants in other parts of the country.That’s down from an estimated 400 to 600 square kilometers (155 to 230 square miles) that the group held at the end of November before Trump announced the withdrawal, according to two officials who were not authorized to discuss the matter publicly and spoke on condition of anonymity.However, a Defense Department inspector general report released Monday said the Islamic State group “remains a potent force of battle-hardened and well-disciplined fighters that could likely resurge in Syria” absent continued counterterrorism pressure. According to the Pentagon, the group is still able to coordinate offensives and counteroffensives.Administration officials say the White House has also been weighing several “moonshot” goals. An announcement is expected on a new initiative aimed at ending transmissions of HIV by 2030. “He will be asking for bipartisan support to make that happen,” said White House counselor Kellyanne Conway.Trump’s guests for the speech include Anna Marie Johnson, a 63-year-old woman whose life sentence for drug offenses was commuted by the president, and Joshua Trump, a sixth-grade student from Wilmington, Delaware, who was allegedly bullied because of his last name. They will sit with first lady Melania Trump during the address.Associated Press writers Catherine Lucey, Zeke Miller, Darlene Superville, Matthew Lee and Lolita C. Baldor contributed to this report.

Netflix Enters FirstLook Deal With Umbrella Academy Creator Dark Horse

first_img What to Stream on Netflix This Weekend11 Other Old-School Nick Shows That Should Get Netflix Movies Stay on target Netflix has inked a first-look deal with Dark Horse Entertainment.As its name suggests, the new agreement gives Netflix a first look at TV and film rights for the production company’s intellectual property.The pair have already begun exploring future projects—with Dark Horse Entertainment’s Mike Richardson, Keith Goldberg, and Paul Schwake signed on to produce.Which means we can expect more content like the brilliant action-comedy series The Umbrella Academy (recently renewed for a second season!) and graphic-novel-turned-action-thriller-film Polar by Jonas Åkerlund.“Following the success of The Umbrella Academy, we’re excited to extend our relationship with Dark Horse Comics,” Cindy Holland, vice president of original content for Netflix, said in a statement.“The Netflix teams are already working in deep collaboration with Dark Horse to identify projects beyond the world of traditional superheroes—branching into horror, fantasy, and family entertainment—that we think our members will love,” she added.Founded by Mike Richardson, Dark Horse Entertainment spun off from Dark Horse Comics in 1992; it went on to produce films like The Mask, Timecop, Mystery Men, American Splendor, Alien vs. Predator, Hellboy, Sin City, and 300.Mads Mikkelsen and Vanessa Hudgens in Dark Horse Netflix original film “Polar” (via Netflix)Netflix original The Umbrella Academy, about a dysfunctional superhero family, brought My Chemical Romance singer Gerard Way’s comic book series to life this year, earning praise for its ensemble cast and stunning visuals.The utterly bingeable show—starring Ellen Page, Tom Hopper, David Castañeda, Emmy Raver-Lampman, Robert Sheehan, Aidan Gallagher, Cameron Britton, and Mary J. Blige—was renewed for a second season within a month.“With The Umbrella Academy and Polar, Netflix has pushed our content out into the world and allowed it to spread in a way that we’ve never experienced before, and we couldn’t be more excited to bring a whole new slate of movies and shows to their world-wide audience,” according to Keith Goldberg, senior vice president of Dark Horse Entertainment.Exactly what’s on that slate remains to be seen.The production company is already preparing to release Sin City, Briggs Land, and Mysticons TV shows, as well as a handful of comic-based movies (including a Timecop reboot).There is no word yet, though, on what Netflix subscribers can expect to hit the streaming platform next.“We are very excited about this new arrangement with the talented people at Netflix,” Richardson said. “We have strong creative relationships as well as a large content library to work with and, as we have seen with our recent projects, Netflix is the perfect partner to bring our stories to fans around the world.”More on Geek.com:Netflix ‘I Am Mother’ Sci-Fi Film Trailer Reveals Dangerous Robot ParentThey Alive, Dammit: Netflix Announces Interactive ‘Kimmy Schmidt’ SpecialNetflix Sounds Better Than Ever With New High-Quality AudioHere’s Everything Coming to Netflix in May 2019last_img read more

Pamper your skin with chocolates strawberries

first_imgDuring the monsoon, women often complain of skin dryness and painful pimples and try to cure them by using beauty products.Makeup expert Ishika Taneja shares quick tips and essential natural remedies  for different skin types.Dry Skin: During monsoon, people experience skin dryness mainly because of dehydration caused by lack of skin repairing vitamins.Clean your face with soap-free cleanser as it doesn’t makes your skin dry but keeps it soft. You can make your own toner by mixing a few drops of honey and two tablespoons of milk. It not only tones but also hydrates the skin. You can also use a sunscreen lotion with SPF 30. It protects and hydrates the skin. Also Read – ‘Playing Jojo was emotionally exhausting’Natural remedies: Pomegranate seeds are loaded with anti-ageing compounds like antioxidants and vitamin C and nourish dry skin. Blend two tablespoons of pomegranate seeds and one cup uncooked oatmeal. Add two tablespoons of honey and buttermilk. Apply on your face for a few minutes, then rinse. It helps remove dead skin cells.Recommended facial: Chocolate facialOily skin: Monsoon increases skin problems for those who have oily skin. It makes the sebaceous glands, which are responsible for oil secretion, hyperactive. Also Read – Leslie doing new comedy special with NetflixThe oil secretion and sweat are deposited on the skin and trap dirt and bacteria. This gives rise to blackheads, whiteheads, breakouts and sometimes painful pimples.An oil-controlling cleanser that cleans the pores and controls the oil secretion is good for oily skin. Use an alcohol-free toner to retain the skin’s pH balance. For sun protection, pick a gel-based sunscreen lotion with SPF 30 that adds moisture but isn’t too creamy.Natural remedies: Take two tablespoons of papaya pulp, one tablespoon of curd and an ounce of aloe vera gel. Mix it well. Add a few drops of lavender oil. Papaya works as a great de-tanner, the curd clears blemishes, the aloe vera soothes the skin and the lavender boosts rejuvenation.Recommended facial: Aloe vera facial.Combination skin: This skin type is a mix of oily and dry skin. Cheeks usually become dry and other parts of the face, specially the nose, get oily because of the excessive humidity during monsoon.Anti-bacterial cleanser is perfect for this skin type. For toning, add two drops of lemon juice to cold water and wash your face with it. Lemon is not only refreshing but also works as a cleanser.Before stepping out, apply a hydrating sunscreen lotion with SPF 30 as the skin loses moisture due to sweating. Monsoon also aggravates the problem of dandruff, which can further lead to hair fall, breakouts or acne outburst. So it’s equally important to keep your hair clean.Natural remedies: A strawberry face pack is perfect for this skin type. Blend half a cup of frozen or fresh strawberries with one cup of yogurt and one-and-a-half tablespoons of honey. Apply it on your face for a soft and smooth skin.Recommended facial: Fruit facial with milk.last_img read more

In fact, he wishes big car companies would put the pedal to the metal already.“I’m glad to see these announcements of these other companies,” Musk said of the increasing number of competitors revving up electric car plans during an interview with the Danish newspaper Børsen. “I hope they move even faster than they announce.”The visionary entrepreneur has all but begged traditional automakers to enter the battery-powered vehicle race for years now, from the pages of GQ to the heart of Motor City, and just about any time he commands the media spotlight, which is often.Related: Apple’s Tesla Challenger Could Roll Into the Market By 2019Musk, currently overseas to cut the ribbon on Tesla’s first European assembly plant, recently noted that seven long years have passed since his Palo Alto, Calif.-based startup unveiled the Roadster, its inaugural luxury electric sports car. Now, in a warming world circled by an estimated 1.2 billion cars — only about 2.5 percent of them electric, fuel-cell or battery electric — the billionaire is cooling off on outright condemning the auto industry for being asleep at the sustainable wheel. His approach today seems more honey than vinegar.When asked by Børsen how he feels about taking on auto and energy industry giants, Musk acknowledged that it’s challenging, yet pointed to how widely his car company has grown in spite of being a disruptive outsider. “It can be quite difficult at times,” he admitted. “The big car companies and the big energy companies have quite sharp elbows, so, at various times, they try to squash small companies like Tesla, but generally I think we have the popular support.”  Related: Stephen Colbert Tries to Figure Out if Elon Musk Is a Superhero or Something More Sinister (VIDEO)The Børsen interviewer noted that some other high-end carmakers, specifically Porsche, are gaining traction. Musk responded by underscoring the “ideological motivation” behind why he launched Tesla Motors in 2003 in the first place: to stop human extinction by popularizing sustainable transportation. If all else fails, pack your SpaceX spacesuit, it’s Mars or bust.“The reason that we’re doing Tesla is to try to accelerate the advent of sustainable transport, to have there be more electric cars on the road,” Musk said, “and, to that end, we actually open-sourced all of our patents. Any e-car company can use our technology. It’s no problem. They don’t even have to pay a fee to us.”Share and share alike, and eat your heart out, Apple. Musk welcomes the challenge, late in the game as it is. Without more electric cars from more competitors on the road, he fears for the future of our world and our species, that is if artificial intelligence doesn’t annihilate us first.  Related: Elon Musk, Stephen Hawking Warn That AI Military Robots Could Ignite Next Global Arms Race 3 min readlast_img read more

LGBTI choir performs opposite UK parliament ahead of Brexit vote

first_imgShare this:TwitterFacebookLike this:Like Loading… An LGBTI choir performed opposite the UK Parliament ahead on the vote on EU Withdrawal Bill, expected on 12 June.The event, organized by Amnesty, Liberty and Stonewall, urged MPs to keep Lords amendments to Brexit Bill and protect the rights of the LGBTI community after leaving the EU. “The charter is the only concrete international instrument which expressly prohibits discrimination against sexual orientation,” adds Logan.Chief executive of the Human Dignity Trust Jonathan Cooper warned on the possible threat that Brexit represents for the LGBTI community.‘We can’t afford to lose the only international treaty protecting the LGBTI community,’ he says.Should the Commons decide not to vote for the amendments, “we’d be losing our dignity and a plethora of other rights. We simply wouldn’t be part of UK law”.Watch the video of the performance below. eTN Chatroom for Readers (join us) The idea of joining two LGBTI choirs comes from the very concept of joining communities together, explains Amnesty’s Law & Human Rights Programme Director Rachel Logan.The singers performed powerful, political hymns, such as Bread and Roses, and the latest LGBTI anthem, This Is Me. In the soundtrack of the movie The Greatest Showman, the song won the Golden Globe and was nominated for Best Song at the Academy Awards earlier this year.‘Music is able to bring home the reality and the emotion of what will be at stake with the withdrawal bill’, she says.‘The LGBTI community can’t afford to lose the EU Charter’Amendment 5, proposed by barrister and crossbench peer David Pannick, would transfer the EU Charter of Fundamental Rights into domestic law. If the Commons will not vote in favor of the amendment, LGBTI rights might be at risk.center_img Got a news tip? Want to share your story? Email us .

Fannie Freddie Directed to Postpone GFee Changes

first_img Agents & Brokers Attorneys & Title Companies Fannie Mae FHFA Freddie Mac G-fees Investors Lenders & Servicers Mel Watt Service Providers 2014-01-08 Carrie Bay January 8, 2014 438 Views in Government, Secondary Market The Federal Housing Finance Agency (FHFA) announced Wednesday that it has directed Fannie Mae and Freddie Mac to delay implementation of planned changes to the companies’ guarantee fee (g-fee) structure.In early December, FHFA–through acting director Edward DeMarco–announced plans to increase the base g-fee for all mortgages by 10 basis points, update the up-front g-fee grid, and eliminate the up-front 25 basis pointadverse market fee that has been assessed on all mortgages purchased by the GSEs since 2008. The changes were expected to take effect in March and April of this year.However, FHFA Director Melvin L. Watt, who was sworn in as head of the agency on Monday, said he first wants to conduct a thorough evaluation of the proposed changes and their likely impact. In a statement to the press, FHFA said Watt’s assessment of the fee adjustments would be completed “”as expeditiously as possible.”” The agency says lenders will have at least 120 days from the completion of that evaluation before any changes must be implemented.””The implications for mortgage credit availability and how these changes might interact with the new qualified mortgage (QM) standards could be significant. I want to fully understand these implications before deciding whether to move forward with any adjustments to g-fee pricing,”” Watt said in announcing the delay on Wednesday.Watt had previously alerted the market and industry partners that the g-fee hike would be postponed in late December, prior to officially taking up his new post.center_img Share Fannie, Freddie Directed to Postpone G-Fee Changeslast_img read more

Upgrades Made to Over 130 RMBS RePerforming Loan Classes

first_img October 23, 2017 585 Views Share Fitch Ratings has taken rating actions on 504 classes in 27 U.S. RMBS transactions in a spreadsheet released by the credit-rating agency Monday. The transactions reviewed consisted of 26 seasoned performing loan (SPL) and re-performing loan (RPL) transactions and one ReRemic U.S. residential mortgage-backed securities transaction; 373 classes were affirmed and 131 classes were upgraded, according to Fitch Ratings.Based on the data, 258 classes have a positive outlook and 246 have a stable outlook, which can be found on Fitch Ratings website by doing a title search for “U.S. RMBS Ratings Actions for Oct. 20 2017.” Those interested in an updated probability of default (PD), loss severity (LS) and expected loss (XL) can be find that information by searching “U.S. RMBS Loss Metrics” on Fitch Ratings’ website.Rating SensitivitiesFitch’s analysis rates scenarios from “CCCsf” to “AAAsf.” The CCCsf scenario is a most-likely base-case scenario and any scenarios above CCCsf are increasingly more stressful and less likely to occur. The primary driver of the loss scenarios is the home price forecast assumption. In a “Bsf” scenario, Fitch assumes home prices decline 10 percent below their long-term sustainable level and the home price decline assumption is increased by 5 percent at each higher rating category up to 35 percent decline in the “AAAsf” scenario.Key Rating DriversAccording to Fitch Ratings, performance has been stronger than expected and projected losses have improved since its prior review. The base-case projected loss has gone down 70 bps and the “AAAsf” stress scenario loss went down by 90 bps. This was mainly driven by low delinquency and home price appreciation. The pools reviewed by Fitch Ratings had an average serious delinquency rate under five percent. Conditional prepayment rates (CPS) are averaging 19 percent and pool factors average around 84 percent, while the average credit enhancement (CE) of investment-grade classes reviewed increased from 31 percent at issuance to 40 percent today. in Daily Dose, Data, Featured, journal, Servicingcenter_img Upgrades Made to Over 130 RMBS Re-Performing Loan Classes Fitch Ratings Re-Performing Loan Classes RMBS stress scenario transactions upgrade 2017-10-23 Dean Terrelllast_img read more
