Tomas O’Leary’s controversial tackle on Cian Healy


first_imgWednesday May 19, 2010 Tomas O’Leary’s controversial tackle on Cian Healy If you missed the big Magners League semi final between Leinster and Munster on the weekend, you probably havent yet seen the tackle that divided opinion and put referee Nigel Owen under the spotlight as he dealt with it in rather controversial fashion.As Leinster charged towards the line, prop Cian Healy looked certain to score but with the tryline beckoning, he was taken high by Munster scrumhalf Tomas OLeary, knocking him to the floor and dislodging the ball in what proved to be a try saving tackle.While Healy did lean into it as he was swerving, OLeary hit him pretty high, riding up and making contact with the face with his shoulder. By all means it looked like it would normally be called a high tackle, particularly based on the way Healy dropped like a sack of spuds.Referee Owens initially ruled it was just a knock on, but it then got interesting as he decided to refer it to the TMO, justifying it by saying it was in the act of scoring a try, despite the tackle happening almost five meters out.As with most decisions in rugby, it comes down to the referees interpretation of the laws, but this seemed to be a bit of a stretch perhaps? The TMO said it was too far out anyway, so Owens reverted to a penalty, rather than just making the call for a yellow card or penalty try himself.Such is the respect that Owens commands, he seemed in complete control of the situation the whole time, and basically just gave OLeary a talking to and warning.So while theres obviously tension between Leinster and Munster fans at the best of times, I thought it would still be interesting to post this and see what the general opinion is regarding the way it was dealt with by the officials. As a bonus the only try of the match, scored by Rob Kearney, is included in this post.

Sign up for DS News Daily Home / Daily Dose / Wells Fargo to Re-enter the RMBS Bond Market The Best Markets For Residential Property Investors 2 days ago October 8, 2018 2,136 Views  Print This Post A decade after it moved out of it, Wells Fargo Bank is planning to re-enter the private residential mortgage-backed securities (RMBS) market. The bank is said to be working on a $441 million mortgage bond without government guarantee along with an AAA rating, according to a Bloomberg report, which said that the non-agency bond would include top portions and that the sale was likely to be finalized this week.The only other big bank to have recently entered this space is JPMorgan Chase. Speaking to DS News, a spokesperson for Wells Fargo said that its reentry into the market was to continue to “best serve our mortgage customers as the market evolves and to expand our funding resources.”While declining to comment on the specific details about the transaction, the Wells Fargo spokesperson said, “We anticipate that any RMBS offerings would include recently originated non-conforming, prime loans consistent with those we have been putting on our balance sheet for the past several years.”The bank couldn’t have picked a better time to enter this market with the issuance of private-label RMBS hitting a post-crisis high of $75 billion in 2018, according to Bloomberg, due to heavy investor demand for non-qualified mortgage transactionsWells Fargo had been one of the top RMBS lenders before the crisis with more than $1 trillion worth of mortgages sold in 2005 and 2006, the Bloomberg report said.The news of Wells Fargo’s reentry into private-label RMBS markets comes months after the bank reached a settlement with the Department of Justice (DOJ) for $2.09 billion for allegations that the bank originated and sold residential mortgage loans that it knew did not meet the standard the bank represented in 2007. This allegedly caused investors, including federally insured financial institutions, billions in losses due to investing in these RMBSs which contained loans originated by Wells Fargo, according to a statement by the DOJ.

Economic Ironies


first_img Governmental Measures Target Expanded Access to Affordable Housing 2 days ago Sign up for DS News Daily Servicers Navigate the Post-Pandemic World 2 days ago  Print This Post in Daily Dose, Featured, News The Commerce Department has released an estimate for economic growth in Q3 of 3.5 percent—a slight drop from 4.2 percent in Q2. Consumer spending, which accounts for nearly 70 percent of all U.S. economic output, rose 4 percentage points, tracking with its strength in the preceding quarter. Inventory additions also boosted numbers by 2 percent. Housing, however, did little to help the numbers, shrinking 4 percentage points—its third consecutive decline.According to a recent New York Times article written by Nelson D. Schwartz, analysts have anticipated that the rollicking economy would slow its roll after a heady second quarter. Even with the slight slowdown in growth, the overall economy remains on track to expand another 3 percent this year—the first time it will have done so since 2005.“Clearly a strong headline but the details are a little less robust,” said Michelle Meyer, Senior U.S. Economist at Bank of America and Merrill Lynch. “There was very little increase in equipment investment and a decline in residential investment. And there was a particularly large increase in inventories, which is not sustainable.”Policymakers at the Federal Reserve have contributed to the slowing pace of growth by raising interest rates gradually as a strategy to stave off inflation. This has, in turn, contributed to recent drops in the stock market, a corresponding rise in bond yields, and a hike in mortgage rates. “The latest rate move is related to inflation but also the deficit, said Tendayi Kapfidze, Chief Economist at LendingTree. “The tax cut and fiscal stimulus are increasing both inflation and the deficit, pushing rates higher.”But as the economy improves and shows signs of continued growth, the housing market still hasn’t seen any real signs of relief. As recently discussed at length in our sister publication MReport as well as here, mortgage rates are rising and home prices are up over 6 percent year over year. It remains a question how long such dynamic tensions can remain in the industry with demand high but availability so restricted by cost and scarcity.   Rachel Evans, a business journalist with Bloomberg, explores the possible threats posed by passive investment, indicating in a recent article that if trouble lurks in the markets it is likely to first rear its head in real estate index funds. Her piece explores whether or not real estate index funds have reached a point where market saturation has led to inflated shares that could expose the next financial bubble.

Magnitude 6.4 earthquake hits Puerto Rico day after 5.8 quake


first_imgTexPhoto/iStock(SAN JUAN, Puerto Rico) — A magnitude 6.4 earthquake struck Puerto Rico in the early hours of Tuesday, according to the U.S. Geological Survey.
