The housing shortage, especially affordable housing, is on many minds, this is a major question for housing policy makers, and is at the center of countless recent studies.

One of these surveys is courtesy of Zillow Research, which published, “Zoning changes the most efficient way to increase housing supply, ”For which the authors took into account the opinion of a panel of more than a hundred experts in the field and economists.

Zillow’s panel expects house prices to continue rising and construction to slow in the coming years, with high costs being the main obstacle. They deduced that relaxing zoning rules to allow for more and / or more efficient new home construction would be the most effective way to increase supply.

On average, the expert panel told Zillow it expects new housing starts to end the year 2.5% below December 2020 levels and drop 2%. additional by the end of 2022.

Zillow researchers address the fact that builders’ confidence has always remained at very high levels since last summer, which makes the prediction a bit inconsistent, however, Zillow points out, “optimism alone may not be enough to make a significant dent in the massive shortfall in construction since the Great Recession. “

Less restrictive zoning was the most effective strategy to help increase inventory; this is the n ° 1 route chosen by 56% of respondents.

Zillow explained this:

Zillow’s previous research has even found a modest amount of overzoning in large metropolitan areas could add 3.3 million homes to the U.S. housing stock, creating room for more than half of missing households since the Great Recession — one of the main reasons for today’s frenzied housing demand. A majority (57%) of owners previously interviewed by Zillow previously said they believed that they and others should be able to add additional homes on their property, and 30% said they would be willing to invest money to create homes on their own property if it was allowed. “

Other recommendations for increasing housing supply included relaxing the land subdivision process, relaxing local review regulations for projects of a certain size, accelerating the adoption of new construction technologies and increased training to strengthen the construction workforce.

The researchers add that, of course, new construction isn’t the only way to increase inventory.

A similar panel, when surveyed in the first quarter of 2021, said they expect the housing stock to start growing again in 2021, with an increase in the number of existing homes listed being the most likely path to inventory growth.

Previous Zillow is looking for has shown that the widespread distribution of coronavirus vaccines could make some 14 million households comfortable moving that don’t necessarily feel that way now.

Terry Loebs, the founder of Pulsenomics, exposes the many situations that come together to create the current environment.

“A profound shift in housing preferences, the adoption of remote employment, low mortgage rates and the economic recovery continue to fuel demand in the single-family home market and push up prices,” Loebs said. “Strict zoning regulations, an acute labor shortage and record material costs are hampering new construction, worsening the imbalance and raising expectations that above-normal house price growth rates will persist in the near future. – beyond the short term. “

LatinXcellence: Roberto Larios made his Hollywood dream come true and now helps others to do the same https://6toros6.com/latinxcellence-roberto-larios-made-his-hollywood-dream-come-true-and-now-helps-others-to-do-the-same/ https://6toros6.com/latinxcellence-roberto-larios-made-his-hollywood-dream-come-true-and-now-helps-others-to-do-the-same/#respond Fri, 11 Jun 2021 13:58:00 +0000 https://6toros6.com/latinxcellence-roberto-larios-made-his-hollywood-dream-come-true-and-now-helps-others-to-do-the-same/ The evidence goes back to the age of about 13. Back then, Valentine’s Day, Mother’s Day, and Sweetest Day – a holiday celebrated in the Midwest, including her native Chicago – meant working in her mother’s flower shop to help with the rush.

Further evidence can be found in his pre-Hollywood turn to health management, when he worked 8 a.m. to 9 p.m. and once went seven months in a row without taking a day off. .

Even more evidence is the days he spent driving Lyft – sometimes until 3 a.m. on weekends – while working full-time as an assistant, networking and reading scripts in his spare time, so he can make ends meet.

Larios, a TV agent, knows what it means to work hard, and it got him where he is, at one of Hollywood’s top agencies.

Larios’s parents, immigrants from Mexico, were business owners who still worked, whether it was at the aforementioned flower shop, Mary Kay’s sale, or his father’s sports bar.

The latter, in fact, is where Larios gained great appreciation for cinema. On weekends before the bar opened, he would sit in the middle room of his father’s bar, hook up a VCR to the projector, and mow classics, sometimes joined by early risers. Sunday was also to go to the movies with the family.

Translating this innate love of cinema into his future career, however, took some time. But denying his passion for entertainment – and his loathing for political science, his initial educational pursuit while studying at Notre Dame – didn’t last long.

Larios landed at Hollywood agency Verve after graduating from DePaul University with a Masters of Fine Arts degree and never left, going from the mail room to being an agent.

“I’m from the country, and to be honest that’s the best avenue – being in the trenches to learn from the bottom up and soak up the culture of the company while learning valuable lessons,” he said. -he declares.

The trip, however, would never have happened without the mentorship and encouragement he received early on as an assistant from Verve partners like Amy Retzinger, Adam Weinstein and Bill Weinstein.

Larios describes his trip with pride because it is not a shared story. (“I got promoted in about three years. That doesn’t usually happen to a Latino in this industry,” he said.) Even less is finding bosses who will invest in your success and take action. to do it.

Take, for example, Larios’s side gig as a Lyft driver. When he finally confessed to a boss that he needed to supplement his income by driving, it was a wake-up call about what a living wage really is. While driving, for him, never made the difference between, say, having a meal and no, Larios was honest about his position.

“I told him it had never happened to this point, but what I didn’t want to worry about was making sure I could take care of my bills and be able to go home to return. visiting my family whenever I had a chance, ”he said. “I’ve been in situations and seen my parents being in positions where they literally had no dollars with the need to find a way out of that situation, and I never want to be in that position. again.”

This, he said, is a concern for many newcomers to the industry, especially LA transplants.

“These are the double questions of” How much do I want this? “and” Is that enough to keep me here? “he said.

Verve soon announced salary increases for assistants and was the first agency to do so.

Larios has said in all honesty that he has “the next Roberto” and everyone with similar backgrounds in mind – the first in their family to succeed in a difficult business with little or no resources.

“All partners paid attention once I was honest,” he said. “Their main concern, besides the issue of wages, was, ‘What if we got a call saying you were in an accident? “There’s the idea that everyone is replaceable, but they’ve made me and my colleagues feel like we’re each a unique part of the company’s success.”

Larios would like this humanity and this responsibility to become the norm. It starts, he said, when the agencies look at themselves.

“I would say, take a look at the list of each agency and how many miscellaneous agents they have, but it’s not necessarily a number. What is the ratio and, therefore, the impact ? ” he said.

At Verve, about a quarter of their agents come from various origins.

“That’s a good number, and we’re improving. But, at the end of the day, the ratio reflects a lot more the change – at least in our doors – and what we’re trying to do versus who we’re promoting and who we are trying to represent.

In addition, he said, it should be clarified in which areas of any studio or agency the people of Latinx are employed.

“In any big studio or company, like, if they say to you, ‘Twenty-five percent of our workforce is diverse.’ Well I would ask, are the real decision makers? Can they buy? Can they hire? Are they making a difference, “he said.

Even once in influential positions, Larios recognizes – and has experienced – the pressures of being a Latinx professional in Hollywood. When you’re one of the few Latinx agents in the business, it can come with an equal share of responsibility and scrutiny.

“It’s difficult for someone like me or, you know, like my colleague Gina Reyes, because we’re two diverse Latino agents in one of the major agencies in this industry, but unfortunately the pressure becomes one of feeling that we can’t sign everyone we identify with or who we identify with because of being Latinx, ”he said.“ We’re only two agents out of a dozen Latinx agents, so c ‘is the case. “

Larios believes his greatest responsibility is to do his job and to do it well for his clients, in the hopes of creating more opportunities for others.

“Ultimately, as representatives, we are here to build careers, raise profiles and, most importantly, fulfill dreams. If we can help, for example, five Latin comedy writers that we represent to be successful, and all five are doing wonders or are about to do so, so the ideal scenario would be that we could sign five more to replicate the success, ”he said. “At the end of the day, it’s not necessarily just the work that I or one of my teammates do, but how receptive the other end of my phone call or email is to our clients. “

He would never be able to do anything, however, if he had never used his voice, he said.

“I think the only thing Latinos in general need to do in this industry is not to be afraid to speak up,” he said. “I think a lot of us, myself included, just appreciate the fact that we’re in the room. Therefore, we don’t say anything and just accept it as is rather than thinking or saying, ‘You know what ? I think it’s wrong ‘or’ I think we can do better. ‘”

Questions and answers

Last name: Roberto Larios Jr.

Employment: Agent TV at Verve Talent and Literary Agency

Clients: “I don’t want to leave anyone behind. We represent ourselves as a ‘we’, not as an ‘I’.”

Years in Entertainment: 4

Mentor: “All of my colleagues at Verve, especially Bill and Adam Weinstein, Amy Retzinger, Chris Noriega, Gina Reyes, Manal Hammad, Melissa Darman, Rich Rogers, Chase Northington Matthew Doyle, Evan Pioch and Jake Dillman.”

Latino … from dónde? : “First-generation Mexican-American, raised in Chicago’s Back of the Yards. ”

Latinx trope I would banish forever: “Whether we all look a certain way or sound a certain way. Latinos have different skin tones and speak differently, even without an accent. ”

Latinx TV Show I wish everyone had watched / watched: “‘Resurrection Blvd.’, which aired on Showtime and ‘Gente-fied’, especially after Season 2.”

I think the Latinx actor / actress will be a big star someday: ‘Erik Rivera and Raiza Licea. They do so much in the comedy scene for Latinos and underrepresented communities. I really wish they could thrive and the world would know who they are. ”

Overused line that executives say when they transmit a Latin project: ” I am sorry. We must succeed. We already have a project of similar scope. Even when in reality it is five degrees apart. I call it the “Highlander” rule. There is a movie called “Highlander” where only one Ultimate Warrior can exist. So when there are two, one has to kill the other. And you hear it. ‘Oh, we already have a show on various doctors.’ But, it’s like, ‘Wait, you have two white savior doctor shows? Can’t you have two different doctor’s shows? ‘”

What I think all executives could do for a better representation of Latinx on TV: “When it comes to hiring writers or actors, there should be more than the same 10 people. When you think of Latin comedy, for a lot of people, it’s either Gloria Calderon or the bust. For example, instead find the next Gloria Calderon and give them a chance. And it’s the same with the actors. “Oh, we couldn’t get Pedro Pascal, so we’re going to delete him. We’re going to change the Latin male lead role to ambiguous. “Go find the next Pedro Pascal. I know it’s all about the money at the box office, but if you can’t get that great lead person, put the spotlight. in the next role or two and give someone else a chance. Believe you can make them a star. ”

Farm Babe Helps Connect, Engage Online Farming | Kylene scott https://6toros6.com/farm-babe-helps-connect-engage-online-farming-kylene-scott/ https://6toros6.com/farm-babe-helps-connect-engage-online-farming-kylene-scott/#respond Fri, 11 Jun 2021 13:52:03 +0000 https://6toros6.com/farm-babe-helps-connect-engage-online-farming-kylene-scott/

The self-proclaimed Farm Babe didn’t grow up on a farm, but that doesn’t stop her from telling the story of farming to anyone who wants to listen.

Michelle Miller, originally from Wisconsin, has been the full-time online Farm Babe for six and a half years as an agricultural advocate. She describes her journey to becoming the Farm Babe as funny. Miller spoke at the Animal Agriculture Alliance Virtual Stakeholder Summit on May 4.

“I was a 4-H kid, so my friends were farm kids even though I didn’t grow up on a farm,” she said. “They made me participate in 4-H and every day after school we did chores and ride horses, and life on the farm was something I really enjoyed as a teenager.

In high school, every aptitude test told her that she should be involved in agriculture – a farmer, vet, or working with animals to some extent.

“But like many other teenagers who grew up in a small town, I wanted to see what else was there,” she said. “So I moved to Los Angeles, graduated in fashion, and ended up working for Gucci on Rodeo Drive. “

She laughed, saying that if someone had told her that one day she would be raising cattle in the middle of nowhere, she would have been shocked.

“But now I like to joke that I went from Rodeo (Drive) to rodeo and my food fears have become favorite foods,” she said.

During his university studies in Los Angeles and later in Chicago, Miller was exposed to various films and inaccurate information regarding agriculture. Documentaries like Food, Inc., have distorted his point of view.

“I know some of you are probably shaking your heads because you realize that this film is not at all a faithful representation of the animal agriculture industry or agriculture in general for that matter. “she said. “But I really had fallen victim to these food myths.”

A personal trainer had told her to give up gluten if she wanted to lose weight. She had become an anti-genetically modified organism activist who ate only organic food.

“I was terrified of the food supply,” she said. “This movie made my cousin a vegetarian and it had a big influence on us that we were so far removed from farming.”

In a bar, one evening, she was “dredged up by a farmer”. She went out long distance with Doug, a farmer from Iowa, and then moved to Iowa to be with him on the farm.

“That was really when I started Farm Babe,” she said. “Because here was this guy who farmed thousands of acres of GMOs and had feedlots for cattle and used hormones and antibiotics and all that stuff that I thought was terrible. “

It was then that she learned how misinformed she was and that it was time to speak up.

“I went from that girl who was super terrified of her food to one of the biggest advocates of it and realizing that people don’t deserve to be lied to or misinformed,” said Miller. “I really wanted to bridge this communication gap. “

She ended up dating Doug for almost eight years, but after the relationship ended, she now lives near Gainesville, Florida. Miller, however, remains attached to Farm Babe.

Miller believes the voices of farmers and ranchers can make a difference. When she started her page, she thought she would be happy with 1,000 likes and didn’t give it much thought. Now that he has around 200,000 subscribers, she sees the importance of it. Farm Babe got its name after being blocked and banned from Food Babe’s Facebook page within 5 seconds of commenting on a post.

“There is so much misinformation online where fear is such a popular way to sell a product,” Miller said. “Fear, misinformation, hyperbole, celebrities, these influencers who have a huge platform to scare people about food.”

She left a “very polite comment” on an article saying, “We grow GMOs on our farm, I promise you we will not flood our fields with chemicals. I would love to have a chat with you about this or invite you to the farm so they can know better, discuss what we do on our farms every day.

Rather than commit, Miller was banned and realized how insane the situation was.

“If the Food Babe doesn’t let the farmers talk about farming, I’m just going to be the Farm Babe,” she said. “So I started learning from experts like many of you – farmers, vets, animal welfare experts, everyone who works in our industry – that’s really who I started to give the word. “

As an activist, Miller found that people needed to step out of their comfort zone and realize that they could make a difference on some of the hot topics.

“We have people who care where their food comes from,” she said. “They want to make sure the animals are treated the best they can.”

Consumers want to know more about hormones and antibiotics, the environment, soil health, organic foods, pesticides and GMOs. They want to know more about labels because they are so confusing. The average person does not have the opportunity to speak to agricultural experts and does not always know the details of how their food is produced.

“Social media is the number one source for people who get their information,” Miller said. “A celebrity can make a video and reach tens of millions of people. We have blogger moms who trusted tribes, people listen to their friends on Facebook rather than their doctors.

It’s easy to listen to the trusted voices of this circle of friendship, video content, news feed, trending topics, and issues going viral. But what happens when this information is wrong? Miller shared some tips for disseminating information.

“Now we have to train our minds to think,” she said. “We can’t just read something at face value. We have to question everything because anyone can say whatever they want online.

Miller suggested digging into the author’s background in agriculture a bit. Google the author with words like Human Society of the United States or People for the Ethical Treatment of Animals. If the author is linked to these organizations, it could be an activist and an agenda. On the other hand, when the author is a professor of animal science, they are “probably quite credible”.

“Anything else, are they selling something?” ” she said. “Fear is a popular way to sell. “

Click on the bait stories saying everything is trying to kill you unless you buy their product. Or share “studies” that show certain information to support their claims.

“Are they sharing the study? Is this a credible link? Who funded it? Is it peer reviewed? Miller said. “Sometimes people say I work in the animal agriculture industry, so people don’t always trust me as a trusted voice, but you have to think about it, you are a credible voice.”

If people are having trouble with their Apple cell phone, they call Apple. If they have any issues with their Ford truck, they call Ford, Miller said.

“If they have a question about animal agriculture, they should contact animal agriculture experts,” she said. “You have the credible voice to make a difference. “

Miller believes that when people in the agricultural industry come together, mountains can be moved.

“There are a lot of things that we cannot control properly. We cannot control the market price. We can’t control the weather, ”she said. “There are a lot of things we can’t control, but we can control perception. “

She thanked those who work in acres, not hours and for all who support agriculture, inside and outside the industry.

“We really thank you, because we have to come together and together we can make a difference,” she said.

Migration states – WSJ https://6toros6.com/migration-states-wsj/ https://6toros6.com/migration-states-wsj/#respond Thu, 10 Jun 2021 21:57:00 +0000 https://6toros6.com/migration-states-wsj/ New IRS data compiled by research agency Wirepoints illustrates the flight from high-tax states to low-tax states. The chart above shows the Adjusted Gross Income (AGI) that states lost or earned due to population migration in 2019 as a share of their total AGI. The Sun Belt and Mountain West states have generally gained income while those in the Northeast and Midwest have lost income.

Retirees from the Midwest and Northeast are flocking to sunnier climates. But notably, the states without income tax (Florida, Nevada, Tennessee and Wyoming) accounted for four of the 10 states with the largest income gains. On the other hand, five of the 10 states with the largest income losses (NY, Connecticut, New Jersey, Minnesota, California) ranked among the top 10 states with the highest marginal income tax rates. high.

The graph above shows how much the AGI states have gained and lost in billions of dollars. Florida earned $ 17.7 billion in AGI, including $ 3.4 billion from New York, $ 1.2 billion from California, $ 1.9 billion from Illinois, $ 1.7 billion from New Jersey and $ 1 billion from Connecticut. California, meanwhile, lost $ 8.8 billion, including $ 1.6 billion in Texas, $ 1.5 billion in Nevada, $ 1.2 billion in Arizona and $ 700 million in Washington.

Taxpayers who moved from high-tax states to Florida had significantly higher AGIs. For example, migrants from Illinois to Florida had an average AGI of $ 182,000, about double that of those who left Illinois for other states. The average taxpayer who moved to Florida from the other 49 states had an AGI of $ 110,000, about double the average household income. In contrast, the average taxpayer who left Florida had an AGI of only $ 66,000.

In short, high tax states are not only losing more taxpayers, they are losing those with higher incomes. Likewise, low-income and no-income states typically earn more from taxpayers who also earn more.

The graph above shows local and national tax collections per capita, according to the Tax Foundation. States like New York and California collect more in part because they impose very progressive income taxes that absorb the rich. When blue states lose high incomes, their tax base shrinks, but their cost base continues to grow due to rich government employee salaries, pensions, and other benefits.

The result is that middle-class taxpayers in the blue states also end up paying significantly higher taxes than those in other states. Middle-income households in California pay the highest income taxes (its 9.3% marginal rate reaches $ 58,365) in the country. In 2019, Connecticut extended its sales tax to various services, including digital streaming, as tax revenues fell short of expectations.

On the other hand, Florida, Nevada, and Tennessee have been able to maintain their zero-income taxes in part thanks to high population migration. People from other states buy houses and other things, which generates tax revenue, and high-income migrants consume more.

The result is that low-tax states get richer while those that impose higher taxes get poorer.

Best cities to live in 2021: Auckland tops the list https://6toros6.com/best-cities-to-live-in-2021-auckland-tops-the-list/ https://6toros6.com/best-cities-to-live-in-2021-auckland-tops-the-list/#respond Thu, 10 Jun 2021 18:44:47 +0000 https://6toros6.com/best-cities-to-live-in-2021-auckland-tops-the-list/

(CNN) – The impact of Covid-19 on global livability has been absolutely devastating.

More than a year after the start of the pandemic, ongoing health crises, border closures and blockages continue to affect millions of people around the world.

But some destinations have fared much better than others in dealing with the virus, meaning those who live there were able to return to some semblance of normal life soon enough.

New Zealand has been greatly congratulated for its handling of the crisis, therefore, it is perhaps not surprising that one of its cities has been named the most livable city in the world for 2021.

Auckland topped the Economist Intelligence Unit’s Global Sustainability Index of 140 cities around the world thanks to its success in containing the pandemic quickly, allowing restrictions to be lifted early on.

The annual list was not brought forward in 2020, but Austria’s Vienna, number one in 2018 and 2019, dropped out of the top 10 altogether after heavily affected by the Covid, and now occupies 12th place.

Under domination

New Zealand’s capital Wellington was fourth on this year’s list, tied with Tokyo in Japan, and four cities in Australia, where tough border controls have been in place throughout the crisis, occupy the top 10.

Adelaide, Perth and Brisbane were third, sixth and 10th respectively, while Melbourne is tied with Switzerland Geneva for eighth.

“The cities that have risen to the top of the rankings this year are largely those that have taken strict measures to contain the pandemic,” said Upasana Dutt of The Economist Intelligence Unit said in a statement.

“New Zealand’s strict containment allowed their society to reopen and allowed citizens of cities like Auckland and Wellington to enjoy a lifestyle that resembled life before the pandemic. “

Meanwhile, Tokyo wasn’t the only Japanese city topped the list. Osaka, which was number four in 2019, moved up to second place.

While Asia-Pacific cities appear to have excelled, Canada, which had three cities Calgary, Vancouver and Toronto near the top two years ago, has dropped out of the top 10 altogether. At number 16, Vancouver is the city. highest Canadian on the list.

Unsurprisingly, the overall global average livability score has fallen by seven points from pre-pandemic figures.

The index takes into account more than 30 qualitative and quantitative factors covering five broad categories: stability (25%), health care (20%), culture and environment (25%), education (10%) and infrastructure (20% ).

Although the categories have not changed this year, a number of metrics have been taken into account, such as stress on health resources and restrictions on local sporting events, when calculating scores for categories health, culture and environment and education.

However, the way each city handled the pandemic, the speed with which vaccines were deployed and the level of border restrictions put in place resulted in major changes in the rankings.

“The Covid-19 pandemic has taken a heavy toll on global livability,” adds Dutt. “Cities around the world are now much less livable than they were before the start of the pandemic, and we have seen that regions like Europe have been particularly affected.”

In Europe, Germany saw the biggest drops in rankings, especially the city of Hamburg, which dropped 34 places to 47th place on the list.

But despite some social restrictions still in place in Switzerland, the central European country has seen two of its cities progress, Zurich and Geneva moving from 11th and 14th to seventh and eighth places.

Overall health care scores also fell due to the pandemic, with Prague in the Czech Republic, Athens in Greece and Jakarta in Indonesia where the number of cases was on the rise at the time of the survey, marking sharply less than in previous years.

In comparison, the Spanish cities of Barcelona and Madrid performed well in the healthcare category, gaining almost 25 points due to their less strained healthcare systems compared to the first wave of Covid-19 in 2020. .

Honolulu, the capital of Hawaii, also increased its healthcare score, with an increase of 33 points due to the reduction in the number of Covid cases and good vaccination rate.
In fact, Honolulu was one of the biggest players on the 2021 list, dropping from 46 spots to number 14. Houston jumped 25 spots to number 31, an increase likely related to Texas is one of the first American states lift restrictions on public spaces.

Deterioration of conditions

But while there were many significant differences at the top, very little has changed at the bottom of the list.

As Damascus again sits in last place “as the effects of the civil war in Syria continue to wreak havoc”, it is closely followed by Lagos in Nigeria, Port Moresby in Papua New Guinea and Dhaka in Bangladesh, who were all in similar or identical places. in 2019.

These cities have consistently performed poorly over the years due to instability caused by ongoing civil unrest and military conflicts, among other issues.

According to the report, conditions here have deteriorated further over the past 12 months, especially in healthcare, due to Covid-19.

While the successful rollout of vaccination and the easing of restrictions in various countries have raised hopes, the pandemic continues to rage with India currently in the midst of a deadly epidemic.

“Conditions in the poorest cities are likely to deteriorate further, if cities fail to obtain the vaccines they need to prevent the spread of new variants of Covid-19,” the report said. “Weak health systems could be strained, as they did in India.”

That ultimately means we’ll likely see bigger changes in the annual roster starting in 2022, some of the cities that fell may return to their old positions.

“The pace of restoring habitability in most areas will be determined by how effectively the health risks of the pandemic can be controlled, through a combination of vaccination, testing, tracing and monitoring. quarantine, “the report continues.

“Barring huge setbacks, such as the emergence of vaccine-resistant variants, crop and environmental scores should improve. ”

Experts: zoning changes are the most effective way to increase housing supply https://6toros6.com/experts-zoning-changes-are-the-most-effective-way-to-increase-housing-supply/ https://6toros6.com/experts-zoning-changes-are-the-most-effective-way-to-increase-housing-supply/#respond Thu, 10 Jun 2021 09:11:15 +0000 https://6toros6.com/experts-zoning-changes-are-the-most-effective-way-to-increase-housing-supply/

*Expectations for future home price growth among a panel of more than 100 experts and economists are the most optimistic ever in a quarterly survey dating back to 2010.

*The panel expects new construction to slow in the coming years, with high costs as the main obstacle. In the last quarter, the same panel predicted that total inventory would increase later this year thanks mainly to more existing homes coming up for sale.

*According to the panelists, a relaxation of the zoning rules would be the most productive to increase the supply of new housing.

……………… ..

According to the latest Zillow survey of home price expectations, relaxing zoning rules to allow more and / or more efficient new home construction would be the most effective way to increase supply in a market. housing currently near historic lows in inventories.[1] On the current trajectory, these experts predict that new construction growth will slow down and house prices will rise, leading to a decrease in the number of today’s 30-something homeowners.

High costs are expected to slow the dynamics of new construction, a blow to homebuyers already facing a fiercely competitive market with relatively few homes available relative to the number of interested buyers. On average, the panel expects new housing starts to end the year 2.5% below December 2020 levels and decline a further 2% by the end of 2022. Panelists have cited high costs of labor, materials and land as the main obstacles to the home. builders.[2] The Zillow Home Price Expectations Survey is a quarterly survey of more than 100 real estate experts and economists nationwide, sponsored by Zillow and conducted by Pulsenomics.

The results are somewhat surprising given the confidence of the builders which has always remained very high levels since last summer, although it has declined somewhat from highs reached towards the end of 2020. Builders appear to be sensing a golden opportunity to help address the shortage of available housing, especially as demand appears to be on the rise. point to remain high for years to come. But this optimism alone may not be enough to make a significant dent in the massive deficit in construction since the Great Recession.

When asked what could be done to increase housing supply, easing zoning rules was the top choice – 56% of panelists chose it as one of the top three to help increase the supply of housing, and it has been ranked as the single most effective strategy. Zillow’s previous research has even found a modest amount of overzoning in major metropolitan areas could add 3.3 million homes to the U.S. housing stock, creating room for more than half of missing households since the Great Recession – one of the main reasons for today’s frenzied housing demand. A majority (57%) of owners previously interviewed by Zillow previously said they believed that they and others should be able to add additional housing on their property, and 30% said they would be willing to invest money to create housing on their own property, if it was allowed.

Other recommendations from the panelists for increasing the housing supply included relaxing the land subdivision process, relaxing local review regulations for projects of a certain size, speeding up the process of land subdivision. adoption of new construction technologies and increased training to strengthen the construction workforce.

Of course, new construction isn’t the only route to more inventory – a majority of the same panel, when surveyed in the first quarter of 2021, said they expect home inventories to start rising again this year, with an increase in the number of existing homes listed as the most likely catalyst for inventory growth. Previous Zillow is looking for has shown that the widespread distribution of coronavirus vaccines could make some 14 million households comfortable moving that don’t necessarily feel that way now.

With housing demand shows no signs of slowing down From a boom fueled by a pandemic in the second half of 2020, the panel of experts again adjusted their expectations for house price growth upwards. The panel’s average home value growth forecast for 2021 is 8.7% – the highest for a year since the start of the quarterly survey in 2010. That’s up from 6.2% the last quarter and more than double the expectations of the survey of the fourth quarter of 2020 (4.2%). Home value growth is expected to slow to 5.1% in 2022, according to the panel – still strong growth from a historic average of around 4%.

“A profound shift in housing preferences, the adoption of remote employment, low mortgage rates and the economic recovery continue to fuel demand in the market for single-family homes and push up prices,” said Terry Loebs, founder of Pulsenomics. “Strict zoning regulations, an acute labor shortage and record material costs are hampering new construction, worsening the imbalance and raising expectations that above-normal house price growth rates will persist in the future. – beyond the short term. ”

The panelists were also asked about their expectations regarding the evolution of mortgage rates and the prospects for homeownership for millennials in the coming years. Average rates on a 30-year fixed mortgage are currently around 3%, and panelists said they expected a slight increase to 3.45% by the end of the year , to continue at 3.99% at the end of 2022. That would add $ 55 to a monthly payment on a typical home at the end of this year and $ 124 at the end of 2022.[3] Still, this would represent a godsend historically. Average rates were close to 5% in 2018, and they started the 2000s above 8%.

Largely due to the affordability concerns of rising house prices, the panel on average expects the number of people aged 35 to 44 to decline slightly over the next five years, when this group will be dominated by millennials. The majority (54%) of experts who expect homeownership to decline in this age group by 2026 cited worsening affordability – via higher mortgage rates and / or real estate prices – as the main cause.

Of the more optimistic panelists who anticipate more homeowners in this age group in the coming years, most (61%) said an increased preference for property over rent would be the main factor. Perhaps this could be the result of how the pandemic and the increase in remote working options have changed what many say they want and need in a home.

U.S. Coronavirus: States Begin Cutting Daily Reports on Covid-19 Data as Federal Officials Try to Vaccinate More Americans https://6toros6.com/u-s-coronavirus-states-begin-cutting-daily-reports-on-covid-19-data-as-federal-officials-try-to-vaccinate-more-americans/ https://6toros6.com/u-s-coronavirus-states-begin-cutting-daily-reports-on-covid-19-data-as-federal-officials-try-to-vaccinate-more-americans/#respond Thu, 10 Jun 2021 01:03:00 +0000 https://6toros6.com/u-s-coronavirus-states-begin-cutting-daily-reports-on-covid-19-data-as-federal-officials-try-to-vaccinate-more-americans/ The reduction comes as eight states – all in the northeast – have fully vaccinated more than half of their residents against Covid-19, according to data released Wednesday by the U.S. Centers for Disease Control and Prevention.

The states that have vaccinated more than half of their populations are Connecticut, Maine, Maryland, Massachusetts, New Hampshire, New Jersey, Rhode Island, and Vermont.

Some health officials are calling the reduction premature, and the National Association of County and City Health Officials is urging daily monitoring of Covid-19 data to continue.

“As far as I know, we are still in a public health emergency as a country,” Lori Tremmel Freeman, chief executive of the association, told CNN Wednesday. “It hasn’t been downgraded yet.”

Most of these states have reduced to five updates each week; Alabama and Kansas fell to three times a week and Florida to just once a week, according to Johns Hopkins University.

“Real-time public health data is the most powerful weapon against a pandemic,” wrote Beth Blauer, executive director of the Johns Hopkins University Centers for Civic Impact, in a blog post published Monday. “The decline in the frequency of reporting indicates that many states do not view this past year of investment in data infrastructure and public data reporting as a permanent fixture.”

Daily monitoring of Covid-19 data is expected to continue until the nation’s declaration of being in a public health emergency ends or the nation achieves collective immunity, Freeman said. The United States is still trying to get people vaccinated, Freeman said, so it will be important to compare vaccination rates with other Covid-19 data, such as cases, hospitalizations and deaths.

“An ultimate goal is to get to the point where even those who are not vaccinated are at much lower risk – and no one that I know of has really landed on that number,” Freeman said of herd immunity.

As summer approaches, the average daily cases approach the 14-month low and just over half of eligible Americans are fully vaccinated. About 50.3% of people aged 12 and older in the United States – the cohort eligible to receive a Covid-19 vaccine in the country – were fully vaccinated by Wednesday morning, according to the CDC.

The Biden administration is still trying to encourage vaccinations across the country. One of those efforts includes the Centers for Medicare & Medicaid Services (CMS) announcing that they will pay providers a little extra money to administer vaccines at home to those who have difficulty leaving their homes.

“There are approximately 1.6 million adults 65 years of age or older who may have difficulty accessing COVID-19 vaccines because they have difficulty leaving their homes,” the CMS statement said.

CMS will add an additional $ 150 to providers for two-dose vaccinations at $ 75 per dose, the CMS statement said.

Experts push vaccines to fight variants

Experts have warned that a variant of the coronavirus first identified in India and now growing in importance in the UK – the Delta variant, or B.1.617.2 – could pose considerable danger to those who do not are not vaccinated, including those who have already been infected. by older strains.

“We cannot let (the spread of the delta) happen in the United States,” Dr Anthony Fauci said Tuesday during a White House briefing on Covid-19, adding that it was “such an argument powerful “to get vaccinated.

WHO's new naming system for coronavirus variants uses the Greek alphabet
Fauci, director of the National Institute of Allergy and Infectious Diseases, warned that the Delta variant “could be associated with an increased severity of the disease, such as a risk of hospitalization, compared to” the Alpha variant, B.1.1.7, which was first identified in the UK and was dominant there before Delta recently took it over.
Delta variant is likely to be available Pfizer two-dose vaccines and AstraZeneca, he said, but protection against these vaccines requires following a two-dose schedule.

“The effectiveness of the vaccine is reduced in the single dose,” Fauci said. “Three weeks after a dose, the two vaccines, (AstraZeneca) and Pfizer / BioNTech, were only 33% effective against symptomatic Delta disease.”

Laboratory experiments described in a recent prepublication study also suggest that the Moderna vaccine, as well as the Pfizer product, will provide protection against the Delta variant, although further studies are needed.

Johnson & Johnson researchers on Wednesday revealed that the vaccine generates an immune response against some of the most common and disturbing variants of the virus.

Its effects appear to be somewhat reduced against the Beta variant first seen in South Africa and the Gamma variant which spread rapidly across Brazil, but the immune response appeared to be fully effective against the Alpha variant first seen. in Great Britain and a variant identified in California.

Fauci added that variant-specific boosters could be on the horizon.

CDC Releases New Travel Tips For Over 120 Countries

Even those who have had coronavirus in the past should get vaccinated because research shows immunity obtained from vaccination is better than immunity from a previous infection, Fauci said.

Meanwhile, the United States has averaged nearly 14,380 new cases of Covid-19 per day over the past week – the second lowest average since March 28, 2020, according to University data. Johns Hopkins. Only Friday’s average – 14,328 per day – was lower.

And the average number of new Covid-19 hospital admissions per day over a week – just over 2,200 – is well below the country’s maximum average of 16,500 per day on January 9, the director said on Tuesday. from the CDC, Dr. Rochelle Walensky.

But health experts warn that a recent lag in vaccination rates leaves millions of people unprotected against the variants of Covid-19 that have made their way to the United States from other parts of the world.

Over the past week, the United States has administered an average of over 1.07 million Covid-19 vaccines per day – well below the maximum seven-day average of 3.38 million vaccines per day reached on April 13, according to CDC data.

Vaccine maker says it’s working to extend shelf life

Johnson & Johnson – maker of the only single-dose Covid-19 vaccine allowed in the United States – says it is working to extend the shelf life of its product amid reports that doses in the country may expire before to be used.

Of the 21.4 million doses of Johnson & Johnson dispensed in the United States, about 11 million have been administered, according to CDC data. This vaccine can be stored for up to three months at refrigerator temperature.

Vaccines against coronaviruses likely to expire represent 1-2% of vaccines distributed to states, a source close to the federal vaccination effort told CNN on Wednesday.

As states report hundreds of thousands of doses of the Johnson & Johnson vaccine are about to expire, they are looking for ways to use them.

“It’s a problem that there are expiring doses – I imagine in every state. However, it’s a very small percentage of the overall doses that were sent to providers – probably 1-2%,” said source.

7 encouraging signs the United States is surpassing the worst of the pandemic

The US Food and Drug Administration is examining whether the expiration date of Johnson & Johnson vaccines can be extended and, if so, how to use the doses, Fauci said Wednesday.

Johnson & Johnson is performing stability testing “in an effort to extend the shelf life of our COVID-19 vaccine before it expires,” he told CNN this week.

In Ohio, 200,000 doses of the state’s Johnson & Johnson vaccine are expected to expire before the end of the month, and the state is unable to share doses with other states or countries, the state said. week Governor Mike DeWine.

In Arkansas, the retired National Guard colonel overseeing the state’s vaccine distribution stopped ordering the Johnson & Johnson vaccine because the state has so many unused doses it told KATV last week.
The 11 million people vaccinated with the Johnson & Johnson vaccine represent a small fraction of the 171.7 million people who have received at least one dose of a vaccine in the United States.

Correction: An earlier headline and version of this story incorrectly labeled the latest seven-day average of daily new coronavirus cases in the United States as the lowest since March 2020; this is the second lowest since March 28, 2020. An earlier version also incorrectly reported the latest seven-day average of vaccines given per day.

I&G Farms: the legacy continues to grow https://6toros6.com/ig-farms-the-legacy-continues-to-grow/ https://6toros6.com/ig-farms-the-legacy-continues-to-grow/#respond Wed, 09 Jun 2021 16:02:39 +0000 https://6toros6.com/ig-farms-the-legacy-continues-to-grow/

Even a pandemic cannot prevent spring from arriving and with it fresh fruits and vegetables and many plants and flowers from I&G Farms in Jackson.

I&G Farms has been an institution in Jackson for almost 50 years. That is, located at 150 Whitesville Road, it is known for programming some of the tastiest corn in the state. This is “Jersey Fresh” at its freshest, tastiest and finest!

The factory and production company founded by Irene and Gregory Johnston has a lasting legacy that has continued with owner Irene Johnston and her son Jason.

The opening hours of the farm are Monday to Sunday, 9 a.m. to 5 p.m. The only time they close the business is in November for two weeks as part of the transition to the holiday season. They also closed in January until the third week of March, when they reopen for the spring sales season.

Residents of Jackson, as well as those in neighboring communities, have enjoyed their fresh produce, in addition to residents of area cities and even neighboring states, for over 40 years.

When you visit I&G Farms, you will quickly notice many eye-catching seasonal themed painted windows as well as an attractive and welcoming landscape of blossoming flowers and plants available for purchase.

Irene and her son hope you will be impressed by the wide variety of fruits and vegetables that will provide a feast for the eyes and an explosion of vibrant colors of freshly picked freshness.

She noted that these days, “people are much more aware of the food they eat. A lot of them have been asking me about GMOs (genetically modified organisms.) GMOs for 20 years, but if I had mentioned it 20 years ago, they would have no idea what I’m talking about.

GMOs can cause health problems and environmental damage. According to the Non GMO Project, GMOs are “living organisms whose genetic material has been artificially manipulated in the laboratory by genetic engineering or GE. This creates unstable combinations of plant, animal, bacterial and viral genes that do not occur in nature or by traditional crossing methods. “

“People know they can come here, where the food has been grown. I can give them the source of the seed and I know exactly how it was grown. It matters a lot. People tell me our green beans taste like a bean. They eat food that is tasteless because the big farms don’t till their land, ”added Irene.

Everything is fresh and flowery at I&G Farms which has been an institution in Jackson for nearly 50 years. (Photo by Bob Vosseller)

“They keep planting on it over and over again. There is nothing left in the soil, no nutrients. They have a machine that pulls the plant out of the ground and shakes it to death so the beans fall, go into a hopper, into a trash can, break and turn brown. They are beaten up. Ours are handpicked and beautiful, she added.

Irene’s motto when it comes to I&G Farms is’ if they plant it, they will come. Gregory’s sweet corn named after her late husband; Grégory remains the star of the market. It is grown in various “blocks” and staggering planting time results in corn (hopefully) until the end of October. “

“We always have fresh corn, super sweet,” exclaimed Irene.

“In my dreams, if someone had told me that people would go crazy about corn, I would never have believed it. She laughed, saying that her husband got up at 5:30 am and he was in the cornfield. Corn still receives the same level of care.

It might seem strange to imagine corn having an following, but I&G Corn is legendary and is proof that people will travel to get a good ear of corn.

“The only thing better than a ‘Jersey Tomato’ is an I&G ‘Jersey Tomato’,” said Irene. Several varieties of squash and eggplant are also available.

Jackson resident Liz Ferullo is a frequent I&G customer. She shared how loved ones bring back the purchased produce to the farm in Yonkers, New York.

“My brother and sister-in-law from Toms River say, ‘Come have a barbecue and bring the corn. Make sure to stop by I&G, ”Ferullo said. “It’s New Jersey’s sweetest corn.”

Irene said she also appreciates the lasting friendships with clients that have lasted over the years, including new ones that she continually cultivates.

“Many of the customers are expert growers. That’s why they came here. They get information, knowledge and education that they can’t get anywhere else, ”added Irene.

Beyond corn and produce, there are many new and different items available to attract Ferullo and more to I&G Farms again and again.

Ferullo said that she often comes to I&G “for my gardening, my plants, my perennials, my potted plants and the quality is phenomenal”.

Another motto can be found directly on the I&G t-shirts which read “producers for all seasons”. Shirts are on sale inside the building where special plant products are available. The outside area of ​​the payment terminal is where gift cards can be purchased.

Poinsettias can be found in greenhouses every July as the fall ushers 30,000 mums grown in the fields with pumpkins, corn stalks and straw. When the produce season ends at the end of October, the market closes for two weeks and transforms into a decorating hub where wreaths, funeral blankets and bows are custom made. Christmas trees are also available for selection.

As time goes on, even during a global pandemic, customers remain delighted that I&G Farms remains a familiar landmark. Visit I&G Farms at iandgfarmsjackson.com, and like them on Facebook; IGFarms, but it is always better to stop there! If you have any questions, call 732-364-0308.
