He will have a big task to match what the Spaniard has delivered to put the club on path of a steady growth.Under Lobera, FC Goa had played the ISL semi-finals on 2017-18, last season they have moved up to the final and now the Goars are table toppers and strong title contenders.  He has also guided the team to the Indian Super Cup title triumph. Development of Indian youngsters like Brandon Fernandes, Mandar Rao Desai, Manvir Singh, Seriton Fernandes, Lenny Rodrigues is another feather in the cap of the Spaniard coach.Lobera was still not content and expected more from his players. The coach has reportedly slammed the players in spite of a 4-2 league win over Odisha FC earlier this week.  “​We got three very important three points but I am not happy. Because this is not the way to play (in the second half) for a team that wants to win the league. It was the same against Chennaiyin and Kerala Blasters,” he had said in the post-match press conference.The club management and the coach have reportedly had disagreements  over his contract renewal after this ongoing season. This has led to an early end of the ties between Lobera and FC Goa.The coach though had shared the looming uncertainty with The Week in an interview last month. Lobera had told the publication that he wanted to “continue the good work into the next season, regardless of the results this year.“Nobody has spoken to me about extending the contract,” had was quoted as saying by The Week. “I need to work next season. The future of my family is important. For me, the best option is to continue in Goa, but I need to know something.”The publication has also published excerpts from an interview of the FC Goa co-owner and president Akshay Tandon on the club’s and the coach’s relationship and future together. He has said that the club management would decide on Lobera’s contract extension only after the current season was over. “We would love to have continuity. Given how much Sergio has given to the club, it would be great to start a new innings with him. However, we have decided we will only take a decision once the season is over. We will evaluate once we know whether the club will play in Asia or not, and at what level. Playing in Asia would mean a new strategy for the club and its technical staff and it will be important to align everyone with the club’s strategy and vision,” Tandon had reportedly said.Also Read: Islamabad United owner calls for matches between IPL and PSL teams By Kunal Dhyani – February 1, 2020 Cricket WTC Final LIVE: Devon Conway continues red-hot form, slams fifty to provide New Zealand dream start BCCI Apex Council Meet: BCCI to bid for 3 major global events in next tournament cycle starting from 2024; Check WI vs SA 2nd Test Day 3 Live: South Africa lose early wickets; SA 35/2 (11 ov)- Follow Live Updates Share on Facebook Tweet on Twitter Football TAGSFC GoaFC Goa coachISL 2020sergio loberaSports Business NewsSports Business News India SHARE Indian Super League combine Goa FC have surprisingly fired their illustrious coach Sergio Lobera and several other key members of his support staff.

Photo: Lynette Wilson/Episcopal News Service[Episcopal News Service] At one point in the mid-19th century, almost all of the residents of Villaescusa, a tiny village in the north of Spain near Santander, were Episcopalians.It started with one villager who traveled 200 miles to the town of Fuentesaúco, where he bought a Bible, carried it home and began reading it. Then he brought the Bible to his Roman Catholic priest.“The priest said, ‘This is a Protestant Bible; you cannot have this,’” said Bishop Carlos López Lozano of the Spanish Reformed Episcopal Church, during a visit with 12 U.S. Episcopalians to Holy Spirit Church in Villaescusa.The man, Melquíades Andrés, didn’t know anything about being a Protestant; he just wanted to read the Bible. But the priest said, “‘Give me this Bible. I’ll put it in the fire.’” The man did not surrender the Bible and, instead, traveled 222 miles to Salamanca, where he attended his first Episcopal service at the Church of the Redeemer. “He went, he liked the service and then he saw the school,” López explained.In October, 31 Episcopalians traveled to Spain for a 10-day pilgrimage organized by the United Thank Offering in coordination with the Episcopal Diocese of Northern Indiana through Corazon Travel. The pilgrimage began with Mass at the Anglican Cathedral of the Redeemer in Madrid. The following day, the pilgrims boarded a bus and drove to the 11th-century walled city of Avila. From left, Isabelle Watkins, UTO intern; Louise Ambler, a member of Christ Church in Cambridge, Massachusetts; and Bishop Carlos López Lozano of the Spanish Reformed Episcopal Church walk the streets of Lugo, Spain, where the old city is still surrounded by Roman walls. Photo: Lynette Wilson/Episcopal News ServiceIn Avila, the group went in two different directions. A dozen people traveled by small bus to Salamanca, where they visited the first of three UTO grant sites; the larger group departed for Sarria, where the next day they began the 62-mile walk along the Camino de Santiago de Compostela. The two groups would later converge in Arzúa for a pilgrims’ Mass the night before the walking pilgrims completed the journey’s final 12 miles and the groups reunited in Santiago de Compostela.The “grant-site pilgrims” made stops in Salamanca, where they visited the Atilano Coco Center, an international student center named for Coco, an Episcopal priest and a professor at the University of Salamanca who was assassinated by the Franco regime in December 1936. From there, they visited the rectory that serves as Holy Spirit Church in Villaescusa, and later, they stopped by St. Eulalia, a storefront church serving low-income Spaniards and immigrants in a public housing development on the outskirts of Oviedo.The grant-site pilgrims, who heard the history of the Spanish Reformed Episcopal Church, were surprised to learn of the critical impact UTO grants have had on churches and ministries across Spain.“I knew that we had this long relationship with the Spanish church, but I didn’t realize how [the church was] nearly exterminated and how deliberate that extermination had been,” said Sherri Dietrich, UTO board president, who attends St. Andrew’s Episcopal Church in Newcastle, Maine. “And what they’ve done since then, and Bishop Lozano and the church people we’ve met, they’re so positive and optimistic. Not pie-in-the-sky optimistic, but they’re just doing what God has called them to do.”“The [UTO] board, like all church boards, doesn’t have a lot of money to spend on board expenses, so we don’t get to see what our grants have done. You know, we get reports, but we don’t see it firsthand,” she said. Sherri Dietrich, UTO board president, admires the goods in the pantry of St. Eulalia, a storefront church serving low-income Spaniards and immigrants in a public housing development on the outskirts of Oviedo, Spain. Photo: Lynette Wilson/Episcopal News ServiceThe Spanish Reformed Episcopal Church celebrated its 150th anniversary in 2018. In the years following the Spanish Civil War when the country was under the dictatorial rule of Francisco Franco, the government confiscated the church’s property, with the exception of the cathedral in Madrid, forcing the church underground.“Twenty-six buildings and 14 schools were taken by Franco,” said López, who led the grant-site pilgrims’ tour. “The church was almost entirely destroyed. People met in a private home with a Bible and the Book of Common Prayer.” Bishop Carlos López Lozano of the Spanish Reformed Episcopal Church explains to the UTO pilgrims that Holy Spirit Church in Villaescusa, Spain, was seized by the government of Francisco Franco in 1936. Today, the building belongs to a Swiss company and the congregation worships down the hill in the former rectory. Photo: Lynette Wilson/Episcopal News ServiceIn 1936, when Holy Spirit Church in Villaescusa was forced out of its building, the congregation moved a three-minute walk down the hill to the rectory, where they worshiped until 2008, when the roof collapsed and they moved to the city hall. A $20,000 UTO grant allowed the small congregation to fix the rectory’s roof.“Seeing where our money went to repair a roof with a congregation that had only 15 people – they would have never been able to do that; they would have had to close again,” said Dee Dugger, a UTO coordinator for the Diocese of Florida and also her parish, Holy Trinity in Gainesville.Like Dietrich, Dugger appreciated the opportunity to see the results firsthand.“For me, to be able to see where the money goes that we collect each year, and then to be able to go back and tell my parishioners and my diocesan constituents that every penny counts,” she said, while fighting back tears. “How can we have made [such] a difference in Spain? We have basically saved the Episcopal Church here in Spain,” said Dugger. Each day of the pilgrimage, the UTO grant-site pilgrims would stop and reflect and read one verse of Psalm 103:1-5. Here, Leo Dugger reads the verse. Photo: Lynette Wilson/Episcopal News ServiceIn the 1950s, the U.S.-based Episcopal Church became aware of the Spanish church’s challenges, among them having no bishop. So in 1956, two American bishops – Minnesota Bishop Stephen Keeler and Northern Indiana Bishop Reginald Mallett – along with a bishop from the Church of Ireland, which had oversight of the Spanish Episcopal Church at the time, snuck into the country and in secret, consecrated the Rt. Rev. Santos M. Molina in his home in Sevilla.Mallett and his wife had vacationed in Spain previously and returned under the pretense of tourism, said Northern Indiana Bishop Douglas Sparks, who walked the Camino with the UTO pilgrims.“On the first day, they baptized, confirmed and received a number of people. On the next day, they ordained deacons and priests, and then they ordained the bishop who had been elected [clandestinely],” said Sparks, and when they left, their secret visit hit the newspapers.“The Episcopal Church in Northern Indiana, our diocese, they’re grateful for the risks that Bishop Mallett took and the other bishops to come and to make it possible for the church to be sustained in the midst of some pretty challenging and life-threatening experiences,” Sparks said. The United Thank Offering grant-site pilgrims pose for a group photo outside the cathedral in León, Spain. Photo: Lynette Wilson/Episcopal News ServiceThen, UTO took notice. “From 1956 until now, UTO has helped us to survive,” said López. To date, the Spanish church’s properties have not been returned, nor has it received compensation, though it formally requested the latter a decade ago.After Franco’s death in 1975, the church began to rebuild with the continued support of UTO and others. Today, it operates 55 parishes in all major cities and towns in Spain with bi-vocational clergy. Last year, to help celebrate its anniversary, the Spanish church invited the Rev. Heather Melton, UTO’s staff officer, to speak during its kickoff event, and it was from there that she imagined the pilgrimage.“During that trip, I heard countless stories of how congregations or ministries would not have existed were it not for the funding provided through UTO grants,” Melton told Episcopal News Service. “It was so inspiring to see how far the UTO grants to Spain have gone. I really wanted others to see and experience the church in Spain and the powerful witness of blessings.”When Melquíades Andrés saw the school at the Church of the Redeemer in Salamanca, he set out to establish an Episcopal church and a school in Villaescusa, where only the children of wealthy families who could hire tutors received an education. From that one church, another five were established in the region.“Four hundred people, almost all the villagers, became Episcopalians,” said López.Today, Villaescusa has only 150 to 200 year-round inhabitants, and the 15 to 20 Episcopalians who attend Holy Spirit Church continue to worship in the former rectory, while up the street at 41 Calle Derecha, a Swiss company owns the actual church building, whose front gate stays locked. Still, it’s an active congregation engaged in the community.“You cannot imagine how important it is to us to have you here and to thank you,” said López, as the pilgrims toured Holy Spirit. Isabelle Watkins, United Thank Offering intern, and UTO board member Caitlyn Darnell take a selfie outside the Botana family estate church in Arzúa, Spain. The grant-site and walking pilgrims came together for a shared Eucharist the night before the walking pilgrims would complete the Camino de Santiago de Compostela. Photo: Lynette Wilson/Episcopal News ServiceThank offerings collected during a calendar year are granted the following year. UTO has set aside $60,000 in matching funds for the 2020 grant cycle to help to establish an Anglican Pilgrim Centre in Santiago de Compostela. To date, $23,594 has been raised.The Anglican Pilgrim Centre would follow those in Jerusalem and Rome, the two other cities most often visited by Christian pilgrims. Like Israel and Italy, Spain has a rich religious history, from the time the Apostle St. James brought Christianity to the Iberian Peninsula just after Jesus’ death to its history as part of the Roman Empire to the Muslim conquest that began in 711 and continued until 1492. Then in 1880, the Reformed Episcopal Church of Spain was established by former Roman Catholic priests who began to question the pope’s infallibility and dogma in what was truly a Spanish-led – not an Anglican-led – movement.Still, the Roman Catholic Church, which aligned itself with the Franco regime, continues to be the state-sanctioned church, receiving $900 million from the Spanish government yearly, and its history is told throughout the country in its many Gothic and Romanesque cathedrals, as the grant site pilgrims would discover. Yet, it was the Episcopal churches and ministries that most impressed the group and brought tears to their eyes.“It’s just very touching, spiritual and sacred. … It’s holy work, and it feels like holy ground,” said Dugger. “You know, the cathedrals that we’ve been in have been awesome, but these little, tiny, simple churches are more magnificent than the biggest cathedral with all the silver and gold.”The United Thank Offering was founded in 1890 to support innovative mission and ministry in The Episcopal Church and to promote thankfulness and mission throughout the Episcopal and Anglican churches worldwide. One hundred percent of thank offerings collected are distributed annually in support of projects that address human needs and help to alleviate poverty.“We say, I don’t know how many times every Sunday, ‘Thanks be to God,’ and I think very few think about it what it is to give thanks and gratitude. What I love about gratitude is that it’s … relational: It means someone has given you something, and there’s really nothing you can do in return. I mean, you can turn it into a transactional thing. But just being grateful and acknowledging that gift, it makes you feel good. It makes you healthier, emotionally and physically,” said Dietrich.“God asks us to be thankful. He doesn’t ask us, he tells us to be thankful. And I love that it is one of the most obvious things to me that God tells us to do this,” she said. So it’s … a command, but it turns out [that] it feels really good. And it’s so good for us; it brings us closer to God and to others.”Since it began, UTO has collected and granted $138,629,911.07 in thank offerings to support innovative mission and ministry in The Episcopal Church and the Anglican Communion through 5,257 grants.– Lynette Wilson is a reporter and managing editor of Episcopal News Service.

Photo by Cristian ArguetaSoto“Everything has healed up 100 percent,” Baker said. “It was only about a three-month recovery, really quick. I’ve been back at full health for a while.”Wanhanen and Watson are also bright spots.Wanhanen became the full-time first baseman last year following Baker’s injury. He put up good numbers, hitting .281 and posting a career-high .430 on-base percentage that shook a sophomore slump.Watson enters 2018 looking for a junior year rebound. As a first-year student, he tied Baker for the club lead in home runs with 11 while hitting .280 and batting in 44 RBIs. Last season, he had one home run while hitting .239 with 38 RBIs.Josh Watson (7) and Connor Wanhanen (16) exchange ideas during batting practice. Photo by Cristian ArguetaSoto“He’s been working just as hard as anyone else if not harder, and some of the stuff he’s been working on you can see the results already,” Wanhanen said of Watson. “He’s the type of guy that’s going to continue to put his head down and work, so it’s going to show up on the field this spring.”Schlossnagle sees the switch-hitting Watson playing a crucial role in 2018.“He made some adjustments, played some in the summer,” Schlossnagle said. “Made some adjustments in the fall with Coach Mosiello, played a good fall.”Expect fresh faces at second base, shortstop, third base, center field and catcher.“With three-quarters of our infield gone from last year, all of those guys being seniors, that’s a transition just from an experience standpoint,” Schlossnagle said. “I like our talent level, it’s just a matter of getting them out there in their first college game and moving forward from that.”Catcher sophomore Zach Humphreys is poised to take over behind the plate. He hit .267 and drove in 19 RBIs in a limited role last season. First-year student Coby Boulware will likely be fielding balls at second. Sophomore transfer Connor Shepheard could be manning the hot corner. Outfield junior transfer Johnny Rizer will likely begin the season patrolling center field.Shortstop has been locked down by Grandview native, first-year student Adam Oviedo. He was named the District 8-4A MVP following his senior season at Alvarado High School.TCU starting pitcher Jared Janczak is looking forward to watching them grow.“It’ll be fun watching them perform, definitely Adam Oviedo, man he’s talented at shortstop,” Janczak said. “He’s going to be really good three years from now, and it’s going to be fun watching him out there.”Schlossnagle said he’s fine with the growing pains because of the luxury his pitching staff provides him.“The game is about pitching and defense.”TCU enters 2018 with ace All-American Janczak, Freshman All-American Nick Lodolo, and 2017 USA Baseball Collegiate National Team member Sean Wymer in the weekend rotation.“If the season started today, those would be the three: Janczak, Lodolo, and Wymer,” Schlossnagle said. “I’ve always said the game starts and ends with starting pitching.”Wymer had a solid season as reliever leading the team with 30 appearances out of the bullpen and posting a 6-4 record with two saves to go along with a 2.10 earned run average.Starting pitcher Sean Wymer goes through his windup in practice. Photo by Cristian ArguetaSoto“We would love to keep Sean in the rotation,” Schlossnagle said. “That’s a great spot for him, which opens up some innings to be had in the bullpen.”Schlossnagle said two early candidates for the weekday rotation spot are first-year student Russell Smith and sophomore Jake Eissler.Smith set a school-record with a 0.44 ERA and only eight hits allowed as a senior at Midlothian High. He also totaled 100 strikeouts and threw two no-hitters.Eissler struck out 38 batters in 37 2/3 innings pitched and went 4-0 with a 5.02 earned run average in his first season as a Horned Frog.“Jake Eissler has made some big strides and pitched a lot for us as a freshman in a limited role, but his stuff has taken a jump,” Schlossnagle said. “Not sure what role he’ll be in, but he’s going to play a huge role in the pitching staff.”Sophomore pitcher Jake Eissler winds up to pitch. Photo by Cristian ArguetaSotoIn the bullpen, Schlossnagle said the team “needs to solidify some things” in front of All-Big 12 closer Durbin Feltman, who had the most saves, 17, in the country last season along with Florida’s Michael Byrne.“I’ve been sitting around since the summer after we got back from Omaha,” Janczak said. “I’ve been itching since then. We have a good group of guys, a bunch of talented young guys. It’s going to be fun seeing what they can do this year.”TCU begins its season Friday on the road in Phoenix against Grand Canyon University. First pitch is set for 7 p.m. Facebooklast_img read more

Lack of Credit Availability, Low Inventory Challenging Housing Market

He served as sports editor for two suburban newspaper chains in the DFW area and has freelanced for such publications as the Yahoo! Contributor Network, Dallas Home Improvement magazine, and the Dallas Morning News. He has written four non-fiction sports books, the latest of which, The Life of Coach Chuck Curtis, was published by the TCU Press in December 2014. A lifelong Texan, Brian received his master’s degree from Amberton University in Garland. in Daily Dose, Featured, Market Studies, News Data Provider Black Knight to Acquire Top of Mind 2 days ago Servicers Navigate the Post-Pandemic World 2 days ago Two challenges facing the U.S. housing market is currently facing are a dearth of credit creation and a lack of available inventory, according to a report released Wednesday by the Kroll Bond Ratings Agency (KBRA) that is scheduled to be presented Thursday by KBRA Senior Managing Director and Head of Research Christopher Whalen at the 2nd Annual Real Estate Symposium in Salt Lake City, Utah.Whalen said the dearth of available credit for housing is a function of Dodd-Frank Act, which was created in part to protect consumers from predatory and other harmful lending and financial practices by businesses, and the oppressive U.S. regulatory environment, which discourages banks and other lenders from expanding credit for both consumers and businesses. Whalen asserts that the intention of Dodd-Frank was to prevent the bottom third of U.S. households from getting a mortgage – a goal that Whalen says has been achieved.Single-family home prices in most metro areas are beginning to rebound from a weak showing last summer, based on data released by Weiss Residential Research, according to Whalen. But while Whalen said low mortgage interest rates are causing home prices to rise and encouraging sales of mortgages into the agency, the low interest rates have not translated into an increase in mortgage lending – especially purchase mortgages.Whalen reported in the presentation that loan originations for mortgages were at a 12-year low with no recovery in sight. Meanwhile, bank revenues from mortgage sales, securitization, and servicing declined by 35 percent year-over-year down to $9.1 billion. The good news for banks is that non-current real estate loans have declined for 19 straight quarters, below 2 percent for all loans.Thursday’s symposium in Salt Lake is sponsored by Green River Capital, a wholly owned subsidiary of Clayton Holdings, LLC.  Print This Post Share Save Tagged with: Housing Inventory Housing Market Kroll Bond Ratings Agency Non-current Real Estate Loans Governmental Measures Target Expanded Access to Affordable Housing 2 days ago About Author: Brian Honea Demand Propels Home Prices Upward 2 days ago Lack of Credit Availability, Low Inventory Challenging Housing Market Previous: Market Conditions Mixed in Fed’s Latest Beige Book Next: DS News Webcast: Thursday 3/5/2015center_img The Best Markets For Residential Property Investors 2 days ago Data Provider Black Knight to Acquire Top of Mind 2 days ago Demand Propels Home Prices Upward 2 days ago March 4, 2015 1,374 Views Subscribe The Best Markets For Residential Property Investors 2 days ago Housing Inventory Housing Market Kroll Bond Ratings Agency Non-current Real Estate Loans 2015-03-04 Brian Honea Servicers Navigate the Post-Pandemic World 2 days ago The Week Ahead: Nearing the Forbearance Exit 2 days ago Governmental Measures Target Expanded Access to Affordable Housing 2 days ago Sign up for DS News Daily Related Articleslast_img read more
