With an estimated population of 37,786 according to 2016 Census numbers, the capital of The First State saw local home prices increase 2.11 percent month-over-month last November, well above the national average of 0.27 percent. It was also significantly higher than the metro with the next-highest month-over-month appreciation—San Jose, California, at 1.52 percent. On the other end of the spectrum, Canton, Ohio, saw the largest drop of any U.S. metro, falling 2.24 percent month over month.All of that is according to the latest Home Price Index Report, released today by the Data and Analytics division of Black Knight, Inc. The report spotlights the state of home prices as they were in November 2017, which continued a 67-month consecutive streak of annual home price appreciation. U.S. home prices gained 6.44 percent year-over-year, as of November. On a state level, New York was top of the heap for month-over-month gains, with home prices increasing 1.36 percent between October and November. November marked the fifth month in a row that New York led in state-level monthly appreciation.Las Vegas continued to see gains in home prices, but home prices there still sit well below their 2006 peak. As of November, Vegas has gained nearly 13 percent year-over year—up an astonishing 93 percent over its low point—but still lags 25 percent behind that 2006 high point.Of the nation’s 40 largest metros, 12 hit new highs:Boston, MA ($468,000)Charlotte, NC ($230,000)Dallas, TX ($264,000)Denver, CO ($396,000)Kansas City, MO ($198,000)Los Angeles, CA ($665,000)Nashville, TN ($269,000) New York, NY ($476,000)San Diego, CA ($586,000)San Francisco, CA ($861,000)San Jose, CA ($1,073,000)Seattle, WA ($476,000)It isn’t good news across the board, however. While 11 of the nation’s 20 largest states hit new peaks, home prices fell in six of them. Wisconsin saw the largest drop, decreasing 0.37 percent, followed by Ohio (-0.31 percent), North Dakota (-0.26 percent), and Connecticut (-0.22 percent).You can read the full Black Knight report by clicking here.

The Court has taken very serious view of the matter as nobody is available to assist the court on behalf of the CBI in absence of learned A.S.G,” the Bench of Justice Chandra Dhari Singh observed. The Court was hearing the bail application of a former Assistant Post Master, booked under the Prevention of Corruption Act 1988, along with provisions under IPC for offence of forgery and falsification of accounts. When the Court sought to hear the objections on the bail plea, Advocate Kazim Ibrahim, appearing on behalf of the Central Government informed the Court that he is not authorised or empanelled to argue/assist on behalf of the CBI. On a query put forth by the Court as to whether the CBI has any Panel or not, he stated that only Assistant Solicitor General SB Pandey is authorized to argue the matter on behalf of CBI and there is other no empanelled Advocate for the purpose. However, since the ASG was not keeping well, he could not appear before the Court and hence there was no authorized personnel to make submissions on behalf of the CBI. Under these circumstances the Court directed the Deputy Legal Advisor, CBI to file a personal affidavit within two weeks, explaining as to why only one Advocate is assigned to argue entire cases of CBI filed in the High Court.

Her husband and co-accused in the case – Deepak Kochhar – was produced via video conference, while another accused, the founder of Videocon Industries Ltd, VN Dhoot, failed to appear as the court’s summons were not served on him. Special Judge Abhijeet Nandgaonkar had on January 30 taken cognisance of the Enforcement Directorate’s (ED) investigation complaint against all the accused in the case, and summoned them for the offences under section 4 (money laundering) of the PMLA. Accordingly, Kochhar appeared before a special court and filed for bail through her lawyer Vijay Aggarwal. The court allowed the application on a cash surety of Rs 5 lakh. Advocate Rahul Aggarwal appeared on behalf of Deepak. The case has now been adjourned to March 12. Former ICICI Bank MD and CEO Chanda Kochhar had prima facie misused her official position in granting loans to accused Videocon group of companies and received illegal gratification, through her husband Deepak Kochhar, the court had earlier observed while taking cognisance ED’s complaint. The ED’s probe is based on a case registered CBI in January 2019 into alleged irregularities in the grant of six ‘high-value’ loans worth around Rs 1,575 crore to five firms of the Videocon Group between June 2009 and October 2011. The loans were granted in contravention of the rules and policy of sanctioning committee, the ED has alleged. These loans were later termed as non-performing assets resulting in wrongful loss to ICICI bank and wrongful gain to the borrowers and accused persons, the ED says in their complaint, adding, that the total misappropriation is to the tune of Rs.1,730 crore as on April 26, 2012. ED’s investigation states that on September 9, 2009, when the first loan amount of Rs.300 crores was disbursed to Videocon, on the very next day V.N. Dhoot transferred an amount of Rs.64 crores to NuPower Renewables Pvt Ltd (NRPL) managed by Kochhar’s husband, Deepak, through his company SEPL. The agency has alleged that NRPL was incorporated on December 24, 2008 with Deepak Kochhar, V.N. Dhoot and Saurabha Dhoot as its first directors. Before resigning from the company, a year later, Dhoot allotted 19,97,500 warrants to Deepak Kochhar at the rate of Rs.10/- per warrant, on an initial payment of Rs.1/- per warrant. Subsequently, on June 6, 2009 shares of NRPL held by Dhoot and Kochhar were transferred to SEPL, which became 95% shareholder of NRPL. SEPL was another company incorporated with Dhoot as its director in 2008, however, a year later he sold his shares to Pinnacle Energy (PE) managed by Deepak Kochhar. Kochhar started her career with the bank in 1984 and rose to the rank of MD & CEO in 2009. The complaint states that despite knowing that Deepak Kochhar is closely associated with Dhoot, Chairman and Managing Director of Videocon Industries Ltd., Kochhar had neither disclosed this fact nor recused herself from the sanctioning committee of ICICI bank while sanctioning the loan to Videocon. It is alleged that Kochhar’s flat situated at CCI, in Mumbai, was purchased from the proceeds of crime for a mere Rs. 11 lakh when the actual value of the property was Rs. 5 crore.

13-year-old was shot 7 times, including in her face and neck, at school: Family

first_imgiStock/Thinkstock(INDIANAPOLIS) — A 13-year-old girl was shot seven times in the face, neck, chest and hand at her Indiana middle school last month, her family said Monday.Ella Whistler was in science class at Noblesville West Middle School on May 25 when a classmate allegedly walked in with two handguns and opened fire, authorities said. The teacher, Jason Seaman, immediately tackled the gunman, according to officials. Both Ella and Seaman were shot.Ella underwent emergency surgery for suffering life-threatening injuries — collapsed lungs, a broken jaw, ribs, clavicle and multiple vertebrae, and significant nerve damage — her family said in a new statement on Monday.Last week Ella was upgraded from critical to stable condition, her family said.“Ella’s parents are proud of her incredible bravery and strength in facing this unspeakable tragedy,” the family said Monday. “She continues to make progress but faces a long road to recovery.”The teen will remain hospitalized “for the foreseeable future,” the family said, but “she hopes to eventually return to her favorite activities of volleyball, cheerleading, and show choir.”Seaman, meanwhile, hailed by the school district as a hero, was quickly released from the hospital after the shooting.“I can’t say enough of how proud of Ella I am,” Seaman told reporters last week. “Her courage and strength at such a young age is nothing short of remarkable.”“We will spend the next days and weeks processing what happened and why,” Ella’s parents said in a statement on the day of the shooting, according to ABC affiliate WRTV in Indianapolis.“We’d like to thank everyone across the country who prayed for our family,” they continued. “We’ve felt those prayers and appreciate each of them. We’d also like to thank the first responders, Noblesville police, Indiana State Police and the medical staff and surgeons.”Copyright © 2018, ABC Radio. All rights reserved.last_img read more

A report by Amicus has called for a range of cultural and political reformsto tackle chronic skills shortages, low productivity and falling investment inthe manufacturing sector. The union predicts that manufacturing may not even survive in the UK unlessthe Government introduces stronger employment protection and encourages moreinvestment in staff and production processes. Amicus general secretary Derek Simpson, said productivity was the key issue,and that improvements could be gleaned through more employee consultation, andby developing the modern apprenticeship scheme. “If Britain is to retain its manufacturing base, there have to befundamental changes in the way business operates,” he said. “It’s time the Government got tough with employers and called for anend to the investment strike.” The report claimed that both Germany and France enjoy better productivitythan the UK because of stronger employment legislation in Europe. It said the situation in UK manufacturing was compounded by the fact that italso lags behind its main international rivals in terms of output, employmentand investment. David Yeandle, deputy director of employment policy at the EngineeringEmployers’ Federation (EEF) said the lack of investment was caused by cripplingincreases to national insurance, the climate-change levy and liabilityinsurance. “We share many of the concerns, but it’s unfair to lay the blame at thedoor of employers when they are facing a whole raft of extra costs,” hesaid. “UK manufacturing does face some immense challenges, and it is down toGovernment, employers and the trade unions to address these key issues in aspirit of partnership.” By Ross Wighamlast_img read more
