However, other factors affecting this decision to move involve people spending more time at home, with many them now working from home due to the COVID-19 pandemic.The survey was conducted by Redfin from July 19-21, with more than 1,000 respondents stating that they were planning on purchasing a home within the coming year. The survey revealed that 75% of homebuyers said the arrival of COVID-19 has directly affected their home purchasing plans. A quarter of these respondents said that the current crisis has also caused them to speed up their timeline for moving. Others (20%) reported delaying their move due to the pandemic. Also of note were the 17% of respondents who now seeking a less expensive property than they had first envisioned following the financial fallout from the virus.Redfin Chief Economist Daryl Fairweather commented on this shift in homebuyer trends and how the pandemic has directly shaped it: “Somewhat counterintuitively, the coronavirus-driven recession is propping up the housing market. Homebuyer demand is surging despite GDP taking a historic nosedive in the second quarter, largely because Americans value the home more than ever and are willing to prioritize housing even as they cut back on other expenses.”Fairweather added, “Additionally, the Fed is using low interest rates to stimulate the economy, which is giving buyers more purchasing power and boosting home sales. But even with low rates, widespread unemployment and financial uncertainty mean not everyone who wants to buy a home is able to.”Regarding what homebuyers are most desiring in their new abodes, the vast majority of survey respondents voiced their desire for more space, with 21% specifying a designated work area within the home at the top of the list. More outdoor space and a larger house in general were also highly valued assets among respondents, as well as a designated space that could be used for homeschooling.

Read Full Story Racial disparities continue to exert a harmful influence on the health of non-whites in the United States, affecting such measures as obesity rates, infant mortality, and access to health care. Now, a new collaborative effort launched by Harvard School of Public Health (HSPH), the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC), Martin Luther King, Jr. Center for Nonviolent Social Change, the Satcher Health Leadership Institute at Morehouse School of Medicine, and Brown University, is aiming to mobilize the next generation of leaders to take on health inequalities as a matter of social justice.The Social Equity Leadership Mobilization Alliance (SELMA) has two components aimed at graduate students in public health, policy, and medicine: an annual leadership summit and a summer fellowship program. Students must be nominated by their schools to participate in the intensive two-day summit, which takes place in Atlanta at the CDC and The King Center. The event brings students up to speed on the latest research on health disparities and engages students in problem-solving to identify strategies for addressing them. The first summit took place this past spring. HSPH students Zinzi Bailey, SD ’14, Cyndie Hatcher, MPH ’13, Pamela Hung MS2 ’14, and Uchenna Okoye, MPH ’13, attended.

Kent Salado – G, Arellano Chiefs 19.5 points, 5.0 rebounds, 3.5 assists, 2.5 steals Don’t miss out on the latest news and information.

EAC big man Hamadou Laminou.The Cameroonian center, who wasn’t really supposed to suit up for the first two weeks of the season, showed no signs of rust as he imposed his presence in the team’s 74-64 win over St. Benilde.That came even if he just recently recovered from an MCL team on his left knee he suffered in the preseason.Laminou is definitely going to be one of the leaders for the Generals this year, together with Sidney Onwubere and Francis Munsayac.But if he keeps his stellar showing for EAC’s ensuing games, he may just figure himself in the thick of the MVP race late in the season.3. Robert Bolick – G, San Beda Red Lions 18.0 points (62% 3PT), 6.0 rebounds, 4.0 assistsPhoto by Tristan Tamayo/INQUIRER.netArguably one of the best two-way players in the amateur ranks today, Robert Bolick has taken the leadership role for San Beda by the horns.

Facebook Caroline Dhavernas is a great actress that first came to our attention as one of the best parts of the Paul Gross film Passchendaele. In 2013, she re-teamed with creator Bryan Fuller on the cult favourite Hannibal (one of our favourite shows of all time). Now, she fronts her own show, created by Tara Armstrong and produced by Tassie and Amy Cameron (Cameron Pictures), called Mary Kills People. The show was renewed for a second season and features an incredible performance by Dhavernas as the titular Mary Harris. This season will see the addition of Rachelle Lefevre to the cast as the cloaked in mystery Olivia Bloom as well as Ian Lake as Olivia’s husband, Travis.We spoke to Dhavernas by phone from the Corus headquarters and the following is a condensed and edited version of our lively conversation.Brief Take: What does it mean to be on a female-led show? Login/Register With: LEAVE A REPLY Cancel replyLog in to leave a comment Advertisement Caroline Dhavernas: Yeah, it was a first for me, I had never been part of a show that was mostly female. I mean, it was written by women, (we had one male writer though on the team), produced largely in part by women, edited, and also the lead, so yeah, it was wonderful! And also, seeing so many women in positions of creative power is not always the case. I really embraced it. I hope that one day we don’t have to talk about it. I hope that it will be just a given.
