Housing for the Elderly
Housing arrangements for the elderly or aged, intended to foster independent living. The housing may take the form of group homes or small apartments. It is available to the economically self-supporting but the concept includes housing for the elderly with some physical limitations. The concept should be differentiated from HOMES FOR THE AGED which is restricted to long-term geriatric facilities providing supervised medical and nursing services.

Saint Vincent and the Grenadines
A self-governing state of the Windward Islands in the West Indies, comprising Saint Vincent and the northern islets of the Grenadines. Its capital is Kingstown. It is one of the original homes of the Carib Indians supposed to have been sighted by Columbus in 1498. It was in English hands from 1627 till held by the French 1779-83. Saint Vincent subsequently became a British possession and, with other nearby British territories, was administered by the Governor of the Windward Islands till 1959. It attained a measure of independence in 1969 but achieved full independence as Saint Vincent and the Grenadines in 1979. Saint Vincent was the 4th century Spanish martyr on whose feast day Columbus discovered the island. Grenadines is derived from the Spanish kingdom of Granada.

Marijuana use among minority youths living in public housing developments. (1/129)Youths residing in public housing developments appear to be at markedly heightened risk for drug use because of their constant exposure to violence, poverty, and drug-related activity. The purpose of this study was to develop and test a model of marijuana etiology with adolescents (N = 624) residing in public housing. African-American and Hispanic seventh graders completed questionnaires about their marijuana use, social influences to smoke marijuana, and sociodemographic and psychosocial characteristics. Results indicated that social influences, such as friends' marijuana use and perceived ease of availability of marijuana, significantly predicted both occasional and future use of marijuana. Individual characteristics such as antimarijuana attitudes and drug refusal skills also predicted marijuana use. The findings imply that effective prevention approaches that target urban youths residing in public housing developments should provide them with an awareness of social influences to use marijuana, correct misperceptions about the prevalence of marijuana smoking, and train adolescents in relevant psychosocial skills.

Episodes of illness and access to care in the inner city: a comparison of HMO and non-HMO populations. (2/129)Using data from a 1974 household survey, accessibility to ambulatory care is compared for residents of an inner-city area (East Baltimore) whose usual source of care is an HMO (the East Baltimore Medical Plan) and residents of the same area with other usual sources of care. Accessibility is measured by the probability of receiving care for an episode of illness. Results from multivariate linear and probit regressions indicate that children using the HMO are more likely to receive care than are children with other usual care sources, but no significant differences in the probability of receiving care are found among adults. Evidence of a substitution of telephone care for in-person care is also found among persons using the HMO. Data from a 1971 household survey of the same area suggest that selectivity is not an important confounding factor in the analysis. (+info)
Mortality among homeless shelter residents in New York City. (3/129)OBJECTIVES: This study examined the rates and predictors of mortality among sheltered homeless men and women in New York City. METHODS: Identifying data on a representative sample of shelter residents surveyed in 1987 were matched against national mortality records for 1987 through 1994. Standardized mortality ratios were computed to compare death rates among homeless people with those of the general US and New York City populations. Logistic regression analysis was used to examine predictors of mortality within the homeless sample. RESULTS: Age-adjusted death rates of homeless men and women were 4 times those of the general US population and 2 to 3 times those of the general population of New York City. Among homeless men, prior use of injectable drugs, incarceration, and chronic homelessness increased the likelihood of death. CONCLUSIONS: For homeless shelter users, chronic homelessness itself compounds the high risk of death associated with disease/disability and intravenous drug use. Interventions must address not only the health conditions of the homeless but also the societal conditions that perpetuate homelessness. (+info)
Psychosocial predictors of cigarette smoking among adolescents living in public housing developments. (4/129)BACKGROUND: Adolescents residing in low-income public housing developments in inner-city regions may be particularly vulnerable to a variety of risk factors associated with cigarette smoking. OBJECTIVE: To elucidate the aetiology of cigarette smoking among adolescents living in public housing developments. DESIGN, SETTING, AND SUBJECTS: We examined predictors of smoking from four domains: background characteristics, social influences, behavioural control, and psychosocial characteristics using a sample of seventh graders (mean age 12.9 years) who reside in public housing developments in New York City (n = 624). The addresses of participants in a larger investigation of the aetiology and prevention of smoking were checked to determine if they lived in one of 335 public housing developments in New York City. All participants living in public housing developments were included in the current study. MAIN OUTCOME MEASURES: African-American and Hispanic students completed questionnaires about their cigarette use, social pressures to smoke, smoking attitudes, smoking knowledge, and smoking resistance skills. Students also provided information on demographic and behavioural control (such as church and school attendance). RESULTS: Logistic regression analyses indicated that social influences from friends and family members predicted smoking. Psychosocial characteristics such as advertising resistance skills, anti-smoking attitudes, and refusal skills lowered the odds of smoking. CONCLUSIONS: These findings suggest that smoking prevention approaches targeted at these young people should increase their awareness of social pressures to smoke, correct misperceptions about the prevalence of smoking among friends, and teach relevant psychosocial skills.

Smoke alarm installation and function in inner London council housing. (5/129)AIM: To determine the prevalence of and predictors for installed, functioning smoke alarms in council (public) housing in a low income, multi-ethnic urban area. DESIGN: Cross sectional study. SETTING: 40 materially deprived electoral wards in two inner London boroughs. PARTICIPANTS: Occupants of 315 addresses randomly selected from council housing lists, with 75% response rate. MAIN OUTCOME MEASURES: Installation and function of smoke alarms based on inspection and testing. RESULTS: 39% (95% confidence interval (CI) 33% to 46%) of council tenants owned a smoke alarm, 31% (95% CI 25% to 38%) had an installed alarm (of which 54% were correctly installed), and 16% (95% CI 12% to 22%) had at least one installed, functioning alarm. Alarms most commonly failed because they lacked batteries (72%). In multivariate modelling, having an installed, functioning alarm was most strongly associated with living in a house versus a flat (apartment) (odds ratio (OR) 3.2, 95% CI 1.1 to 10.0), having two resident adults versus one (OR 2.8, 95% CI 1.2 to 6.5), and recognising stills from a Home Office television smoke alarm campaign (OR 2.4, 95% CI 1.1 to 5.5). CONCLUSIONS: Fires are a leading cause of child injury and death, particularly among those younger than 5 years of age and those in social classes IV and V. Smoke alarms are associated with a significantly reduced risk of death in residential fires, and are more protective in households with young children. Few council properties in a multi-ethnic, materially deprived urban area had any installed, functioning smoke alarms, despite a high risk of residential fires and fire related injuries in such areas. Effective methods to increase the prevalence of installed and functioning alarms must be identified. (+info)
The association between state housing policy and lead poisoning in children. (6/129)OBJECTIVES: This study examined the effect of an active program of household lead paint hazard abatement, applied over 22 years, on childhood lead poisoning in Massachusetts. METHODS: A small areas analysis was used to compare screening blood lead levels of children in Worcester County, Mass (n = 27,590), with those in Providence County, RI (n = 19,071). Data were collapsed according to census tract. RESULTS: The percentage of children with lead poisoning (blood lead level > or = 20 micrograms/dL [Pe20]) was, on average, 3 times higher in Providence County census tracts (3.2% vs 0.9% in Worcester County census tracts, P < .0001), despite similar percentages of pre-1950s housing in both counties. The ratio of Pe20 in Providence vs Worcester County census tracts was 2.2 (95% confidence interval = 1.8, 2.7), after adjustment for differences in housing, sociodemographic, and screening characteristics. This estimate was robust to alternative regression methods and sensitivity analyses. CONCLUSIONS: Massachusetts policy, which requires lead paint abatement of children's homes and places liability for lead paint poisoning on property owners, may have substantially reduced childhood lead poisoning in that state.

Outcomes of a randomized community-level HIV prevention intervention for women living in 18 low-income housing developments. (7/129)OBJECTIVES: Women in impoverished inner-city neighborhoods are at high risk for contracting HIV. A randomized, multisite community-level HIV prevention trial was undertaken with women living in 18 low-income housing developments in 5 US cities. METHODS: Baseline and 12-month follow-up population risk characteristics were assessed by surveying 690 women at both time points. In the 9 intervention condition housing developments, a community-level intervention was undertaken that included HIV risk reduction workshops and community HIV prevention events implemented by women who were popular opinion leaders among their peers. RESULTS: The proportion of women in the intervention developments who had any unprotected intercourse in the past 2 months declined from 50% to 37.6%, and the percentage of women's acts of intercourse protected by condoms increased from 30.2% to 47.2%. Among women exposed to intervention activities, the mean frequency of unprotected acts of intercourse in the past 2 months tended to be lower at follow-up (mean = 4.0) than at baseline (mean = 6.0). These changes were corroborated by changes in other risk indicators. CONCLUSIONS: Community-level interventions that involve and engage women in neighborhood-based HIV prevention activities can bring about reductions in high-risk sexual behaviors. (+info)
Serving street-dwelling individuals with psychiatric disabilities: outcomes of a psychiatric rehabilitation clinical trial. (8/129)OBJECTIVES: This study tested a psychiatric rehabilitation approach for organizing and delivering services to street-dwelling persons with severe mental illness. METHODS: Street-dwelling persons with severe mental illness were randomly assigned to the experimental program (called Choices) or to standard treatment in New York City. We assessed study participants at baseline and at 6-month intervals over 24 months, using measures of service use, quality of life, health, mental health, and social psychological status. The average deviation from baseline summary statistic was employed to assess change. RESULTS: Compared with persons in standard treatment (n = 77), members of the experimental group (n = 91) were more likely to attend a day program (53% vs 27%), had less difficulty in meeting their basic needs, spent less time on the streets (55% vs 28% reduction), and spent more time in community housing (21% vs 9% increase). They showed greater improvement in life satisfaction and experienced a greater reduction in psychiatric symptoms. CONCLUSIONS: With an appropriate service model, it is possible to engage disaffiliated populations, expand their use of human services, and improve their housing conditions, quality of life, and mental health status.

Changing the housing environment to reduce obesity in public housing residents: a cluster randomized trial | BMC Public Health ...
Public housing residents face significant social, economic, and physical barriers to the practice of health behaviors for prevention of chronic disease. Research shows that public housing residents are more likely to report higher rates of obesity, current smoking, disability, and insufficient physical activity compared to individuals not living in public housing. Because these behaviors and conditions may be shaped by the built and social environments in which they live, we conducted a study to test an environmental level diet and physical activity intervention targeting obesity among urban public housing developments. This study was a cluster randomized controlled trial of public housing developments, the unit of analysis and randomization. A total of 10 public housing developments were recruited and subsequently randomized to either receive the intervention package or to serve as comparison sites. The year-long intervention included components to change the dietary and physical activity-related
An intervention strategy for improving residential environment and positive mental health among public housing tenants:...
The ultimate goal of the intervention discussed in this manuscript, Flash on my neighborhood!, is to reduce mental health inequalities faced by public housing tenants. In Canada, the public housing program is an important component of governmental strategies to fight against poverty and social exclusion. In the province of Quebec, households who live in public housing developments pay only 25% of their income as rent, the remaining being funded by the government. There were close to 74,000 households benefiting from this program in Québec in 2011 . Differently than in other countries, public housing is considered to be a residual housing option in Canada. Only people living in poverty have access to this program. Furthermore, in Québec, the largest proportion of public housing tenants is made of elderly people, mostly living in buildings that are reserved to this population.. Even if they have access to an affordable dwelling, public housing tenants suffer from a higher burden of physical ...
San Francisco children living in redeveloped public housing used acute services less than children in older public housing. |...
Understanding the links between housing and health is increasingly important. Poor housing quality is a predictor of poor health and developmental problems in low-income children. We examined associations between public housing type and recurrent pediatric emergency and urgent care hospital visits. Children ages 0-18 with public insurance who sought emergency care from any of three large medical systems in San Francisco were categorized by whether they lived in public housing redeveloped through the federal HOPE VI program, nonredeveloped public housing, or nonpublic housing in a census tract that also contained public housing. After we adjusted for potential confounding characteristics, we found that children living in nonredeveloped public housing were 39 percent more likely to have one or more repeat visits within one year for acute health care services unrelated to the initial visit, compared to children who lived in redeveloped HOPE VI housing. We observed no differences in repeat visits ...

Study Purpose: Project ROAR (Reclaiming Our Area Residences), established in 1994, is a public housing drug-crime elimination program sponsored by the Spokane Police Department and the Spokane Housing Authority. The program reflected a public-private, inter-agency collaboration that sought to empower public housing tenants in an effort to produce a safer neighborhood. The main purposes of Project ROAR were (1) to build upon the ideas of past and present community-based crime prevention and reduction efforts, (2) to provide insight into the effectiveness of such programs as they related to the mobilization of public housing residents, and (3) to examine the extent to which community-based crime prevention programs could create positive changes in perceptions of safety, neighborhood disorder, and crime rates. The Project ROAR program targeted poor neighborhoods located in central business districts with large elderly and transient populations that were experiencing high rates of drug dealing and ...

Frustrated residents sound off on Richmond public housing - SFGate
More than 70 residents of Richmond public housing unleashed years of frustration at a public meeting over squalid living conditions and what they called unhelpful and disrespectful Housing Authority staffers. City officials pledged immediate action, saying residents needed to be moved out of the building as soon as possible. The meeting at Hacienda followed weeks of upheaval at City Hall after the Center for Investigative Reporting reported on conditions at Housing Authority developments as well as the agencys chronic mismanagement and mounting debt. Numerous audits, both from HUD and the agencys independent auditors, have identified breakdowns in how the Housing Authority tracks its money, keeps its books and manages its staff. HUD has labeled the agencys executive director as ineffective, questioned the credentials of the finance manager, and criticized the City Council as ill-informed. Jackie Thompson, a public housing resident who sits on the Housing Authoritys tenant advisory commission,
Governor Cuomo Announces Construction on $67 Million Supportive Housing Development in the Bronx | Governor Andrew M. Cuomo
Governor Andrew M. Cuomo today announced that construction is underway on a $67 million supportive and affordable housing project in the Bronx.

Validity of Self-Reported Tobacco Smoke Exposure among Non-Smoking Adult Public Housing Residents
Introduction: Tobacco smoke exposure (TSE) in public multi-unit housing (MUH) is of concern. However, the validity of self-reports for determining TSE among non-smoking residents in such housing is unclear. Methods: We analyzed data from 285 non-smoking public MUH residents living in non-smoking households in the Boston area. Participants were interviewed about personal TSE in various locations in the past 7 days and completed a diary of home TSE for 7 days. Self-reported TSE was validated against measurable saliva cotinine (lower limit of detection (LOD) 0.02 ng/ml) and airborne apartment nicotine (LOD 5 ng). Correlations, estimates of inter-measure agreement, and logistic regression assessed associations between self-reported TSE items and measurable cotinine and nicotine. Results: Cotinine and nicotine levels were low in this sample (median = 0.026 ng/ml and 0.022 μg/m3, respectively). Prevalence of detectable personal TSE was 66.3% via self-report and 57.0% via measurable cotinine (median ...

NEW YORK - More than 100 alleged gang members were charged Wednesday for what law enforcement officials called a decades-old feud that wreaked violence and death over two Harlem public housing developments.. These three gangs were not sophisticated drug-trafficking organizations, said Manhattan District Attorney Cyrus Vance in announcing the two indictments. Far from it, they were young people protecting their territories from imaginary threats and avenging the murders of fellow gang members and loved ones.. The 103 suspected gang members face charges including conspiracy to commit murder, attempted murder and gang assault.. Forty suspects from three gangs were arrested in early morning raids in Harlem, 39 were already jailed on other offenses and the rest were being sought in what Vance called the largest gang case in New York City history.. The crews warred over territory for two city housing developments, the General Grant Houses and the Manhattanville Houses, and their feuding and ...
Novel Geocoding to Track Health Outcomes | Department of Family and Social Medicine | Albert Einstein College of Medicine
Earle C. Chambers, PhD, MPH. August 30, 2015 - BRONX, NY - Public housing, originally developed to provide stable housing for low-income families, has become synonymous with concentrated poverty. Programs to reduce poverty have focused on dismantling public housing to be replaced, if at all, by mixed-income-design alternatives.. Studies have shown that low-income residents living in public housing have deleterious health outcomes. It is not clear, however, how public housing residents fare on a number of cardiovascular health indicators compared to those with an alternate low-income housing arrangement. Mechanistic models that incorporate housing with neighborhood access to resources and individual behaviors are poorly defined and understood.. A study by Dr. Earle Chambers (Department of Family and Social Medicine), published in the August 2015 Journal of Urban Health, examines individual- and neighborhood- level data to address cardiovascular disease in low-income populations.

Medical Marijuana Users Can Get Booted From Public Housing at Any Time | Cannabis Culture
Medical marijuana users enjoy protection from criminal prosecution under California law - but thats about it. A medical cannabis patient can be fired solely for using the preferred drug, and any medical marijuana user living in public housing can be evicted at any time. And yes, this applies even in San Francisco. Although how likely it is that a joint will lead to homelessness depends on where exactly you live, or how much the local housing honcho hates you, activists and tenants say. To understand exactly how this works, you have to understand that the San Francisco Housing Authority - the nations 17th largest provider of public housing, with 6,500 public housing units and another 9,557 Section 8 vouchers - hires private companies to manage as well as build some of its units.. Last week, tenants at Hunters View - a newly rebuilt development in Hunters Point - were outraged over a long list of paternalistic rules imposed by The John Stewart Company, as reported by the Examiner.

ACLU Outrage: ACLU Demands No Drug Tests in Public Housing :: The American Civil Rights Union
The facts for this article, but not the legal conclusions, come from an article in Mlive.com in Flint, Michigan, on 16 August. It seems to be affiliated with a Michigan newspaper, but that could not be established on its website. It was reported on the site that the ACLU wrote a strong letter to the Flint Housing Authority objecting to drug tests for public housing residents. Then the site opened the subject up for public comments.. The Director of the Housing Authority said he would like to have a zero-tolerance policy on drugs, but there were no current plans to conduct any drug tests of residents. What is interesting here is the reactions from residents to the announced ACLU attack on the Authority.. They follow a common theme. If people choose to subsist on public benefits, then they should expect to follow the rules for conduct laid down by those public authorities.. From numero407: Greg Gibbs of the ACLU should drive through the Howard Estates in the evening. The only people who have a ...

The Paradox of Public Housing - January 11, 1999
This bill was all but ignored both inside and outside Washington, largely because the whole subject of federal housing subsidies tends to confuse and exasperate even the most hardened policy jocks. But bear with me, because public housing encompasses a tragic--and fascinating--conundrum that deserves a lot more attention than it gets. The new law illustrates just why public-housing policy is so frustrating. Briefly, its aim is to help families with somewhat higher incomes find public housing; it will do so by eliminating federal preferences that make it easier for the poorest of the poor to get public or subsidized housing. Now it will be a bit harder for such folks to get this housing and commensurately easier for people who are less financially desperate. This is good because these somewhat-better-off families can help create what housing experts call stable or, more euphemistically, mixed income communities. Communities with concentrated poverty, like Chicagos notorious Cabrini Green and ...

Ohio State accepting proposals for new - and affordable - family housing | The Lantern
Ohio State is currently accepting proposals for a new housing development located at the northeast corner of Kenny Road and Woody Hayes Drive. The 10-acre plot of land is slated to become a multi-family housing development catering to graduate students and students with families. According to the request for proposal put out by the university, the development will include up to 450 residential units and offer rental rates at least 25 percent below the market rate of apartments within 10 miles of campus. This proposal would provide graduate students and those with families another housing option that is affordable, safe and located close to campus, Dan Hedman, Office of Administration and Planning spokesman, said in an email.. The development of the housing project comes following the announcement in November that 18 percent of Buckeye Village, which currently offers housing to graduate students, would be demolished to accommodate the construction of a new athletic facility..

City Pilot Project Allowing Ex-Offenders into Public Housing Shows Progress ‹
NEW YORK - For years, public housing has been forbidden for many people with criminal records. But a two-year-old pilot program run by the New York City Housing Authority that allows ex-offenders to live in public housing with relatives is showing signs of progress.. So far, none of the participants has received any new convictions and many are able to leave or avoid the homeless shelter system while they rebuild family ties.. Margaret diZerega, director of the Family Justice Program at the Vera Institute of Justice, which is helping to implement and study the family re-entry pilot project, says it could become a model for similar programs in other counties.. There was recent HUD guidance that came out a couple of weeks ago and they cited family reunification programs like the NYCHA pilot among the best practices for housing authorities, says diZerega. Were optimistic more counties will look to this kind of an approach and see how it could work in their jurisdiction.. diZerega says the ...

Hopefully this wets your appetite for things to come at the 23rd annual MAHEC Research Day on May 11th. We begin this issue with an interesting analysis of the interplay between housing and health. This article assesses self-reported health status, chronic disease burden, and functional status of elderly public housing residents. The results from this study will challenge mainstream assumptions about older adults living in public housing. The resiliency of this patient population will inspire you.. From there, we hear from our OB colleagues on a new technology used to screen for and manage breast cancer. Breast-Specific Gamma Imaging is proving to be very sensitive with fewer false positives than other tests, especially for women with dense breasts. It seems we may ...

Despite public misgivings, some planners and community activists say attached homes are exactly what the region needs. Without higher-density development, housing wont keep up with the rising population, they say. An ongoing housing shortage could escalate already-soaring home prices, locking low-and middle-income residents into a lifetime of renting.. The region needs more compact housing development, more vertical housing development, said Lynne Baker, who co-chairs the Housing Action Network.. There is more profit motive for estate homes, but the real demand is at the other end, for multifamily, said Baker, who is with the Endangered Habitats League.. Changing building patterns wont be easy, said Michael McLaughlin, planning director for the San Diego Association of Governments. The California tax structure makes it more profitable for cities to favor retail and commercial construction over residential projects, he said. Even with development impact fees, jurisdictions dont get enough ...

Worcester Man Pleads Guilty to Gun Charge | Bureau of Alcohol, Tobacco, Firearms and Explosives
BOSTON - A Worcester man pleaded guilty yesterday in federal court in Boston to being a felon in possession of a firearm.. Franklin Safo-Agyare, 25, pleaded guilty to being a felon in possession of a firearm and ammunition. U.S. District Court Chief Judge Patti B. Saris scheduled sentencing for Sept. 26, 2018. Following a two-year investigation, Safo-Agyare and eight others were charged in January 2018 in connection with illegal activity within and near the Mildred C. Hailey Apartments in Jamaica Plain, formerly known as the Bromley Heath Housing Development. On June 6, 2018, Safo-Agyare, who was previously convicted of a crime punishable by more than one year in prison, sold a Jennings Model J22 .22 caliber pistol containing five rounds of ammunition to another individual in the vicinity of the housing development. The investigation and arrests sought to reduce violence and improve the quality of life in and around the Mildred C. Hailey Apartments for residents by removing individuals who ...

dangerous compassions: March 2009
I wish I was the kind of person who knew how to use her cell phone to take a picture and then get the picture onto her computer for a blog post, because I wish I had a picture to show you of what I encountered today on my usual walk. I always go down Arden to the Catholic church, through their parking lot and into an alley, through the alley and into a smallish housing development thats nice and quiet (except for that one time I almost got attacked by a little dog). Well, today I got to the smallish housing development, and there was a big Neighborhood Watch sign up! And tacked next to the big Neighborhood Watch sign were some smaller signs saying No trespassing and No soliciting and Private property! Can you believe it? So I turned around and left. I dont see how it can really be private property--its not a private road--its a county road, as far as I can see, and I dont understand how they can say they own the sidewalk. So I feel indignant and angry--walking through a smallish ...

Im pretty sure this report is going to get pretty wordy but I hope you all enjoy reading it! A few weeks ago a friend and I made plans to head down to Manasota Key for a day of fossil hunting on the beach. I left my house just before 7 AM and drove down to her house in Tampa. After transferring my things into her car we left her house just after 8 AM. We took I75 south until Venice Beach at which point we started driving on smaller roads. The plan was to check out any housing developments under construction or other construction sites we came across that werent posted. At the first housing development we stopped at there was a mix of completed houses, ones in the process of being built, and empty lots without a single no trespassing sign in site. We drove around the community a bit looking for a place to stop and ended up hunting around the edges of a retention pond. We didnt find much beyond a few small shark teeth and bone fragments. After about 15 minutes we got back into the car to look ...
Complete 911 Timeline: BMI and Ptech Investigations
The Barnaby Knolls housing development, another Washington, DC, suburb funded by BMI Inc. [Source: Susan Biddle/ Washington Post]BMI Inc., is a New Jersey-based Muslim investment firm. Some of the lead investors have been suspected of supporting terrorism and other types of violence in the Middle East (see 1986-October 1999). In 1992, a branch of the International Islamic Relief Organization (IIRO), a Saudi charity gives $2.1 million to BMI to invest in real estate. The money disappears from BMIs books. By 1996, the CIA will secretly report that the IIRO supports terrorism financing in many locations around the world (see January 1996). In October 1999, BMI will go defunct after it is unable to repay this money to the IIRO branch. Additionally, the IIRO branch will give BMI over a million dollars between 1992 and 1998. BMI uses some money from the IIRO and other investors to build houses in Oxon Hill, a Washington, D.C., suburb. Many well to do Muslims invest in the housing development because ...

Background: In 2012, food insecurity affected 14.5% of the households in the U.S and 20% in the state of Georgia. Individuals who are food-insecure can experience malnutrition, and social and physical problems. The purpose of this study was to assess food access and security concerns in two counties of the North Central Health District 5-2 (NCHD 5-2) in Georgia and to aid in devising interventions to increase food access and reduce food insecurity. Methods: Data collection involved surveying 399 public housing residents within two NCHD 5-2 counties using the Household Food Security Survey developed by the US Department of Agriculture. The survey contained 24 questions focusing on demographics and household food status and on the severity and prevalence of food access and security. Results: Of the 399 participants, 91.9% reported annual household incomes less than $30,000; 61% (n = 244) reported receiving Supplemental Nutrition Assistance Program (SNAP/food stamps) benefits, 11% (n = 46) received ...
National social housing survey: state and territory results 2010, Summary - Australian Institute of Health and Welfare
About half of all households surveyed were in the labour force. Labour force participation was highest among public housing respondents in Tasmania (60%) and lowest among New South Wales and South Australian public housing respondents (46%).. Fewer than 1 in 10 respondents for both public and community housing recorded that at least one member of their household was of Aboriginal or Torres Strait Islander origin (7% and 5% respectively). The Northern Territory recorded a considerably larger proportion of households where at least one member of their household was of Aboriginal or Torres Strait Islander origin (23%).. Apart from Tasmania, a higher proportion of community housing than public housing respondents reported experiencing homelessness at some point. Queensland community housing respondents recorded the highest proportion of people experiencing homelessness with nearly 4 in 10 (37%) reporting they had been homeless in the past.. Almost one-fifth of social housing households contained at ...
Prices of condo apartments fall by 20-30 % in Yangon market: real estate agents
U Nay Min Thu, managing director of iMyanmarHouse.com, a property website, said the commercial city of Yangon saw a 20 to 30 per cent decline in the prices of condominium apartments in comparison to 2013, according to a report of the Myawady Daily issued on Saturday.. Now the countrys property sector is facing a market downturn. The citys real estate market remains cool and sees a low demand for housing and condominium apartments. However, demand continues to grow in the rental market, one of the citys real estate agents. Property markets in downtown are also seeing excess supply, he added.. Property agents say that the emergence of bylaws for the condominium Law in December is expected to become a push for the falling real estate market.. U Min Htain, director-general of the Urban and Housing Development Department, said the construction of Yadanar and Ayeyarwon housing projects being developed by the Ministry of Construction faces a delay due to the cooling market..

Harold Hill - Wikipedia
Harold Hill is a large suburban district in northeast London, England, and part of the London Borough of Havering. Located 16.6 miles (26.7 km) east-northeast of Charing Cross and primarily residential, it is identified as a district centre in the London Plan with several parades of shops. The extensive London County Council housing development of Harold Hill was conceived in the Greater London Plan of 1944 in order to alleviate housing shortages in Inner London. Prior to the construction of the estate, which was completed in 1958, it was the location of Dagnams house and grounds. During construction, it was within the Municipal Borough of Romford in the county of Essex and was transferred to Greater London in 1965. The first Greater London Council tenant to buy their council house did so here in 1967. The area is part of a long term regeneration project, called Harold Hill Ambitions, led by Havering London Borough Council. The area that became Harold Hill formed part of the Harold Wood and Noak ...

This mansion is just down the street from Donald Trumps golf course on Lake Norman. Looking up the property records, the house is currently owned by Thomas S Wickwire, who was the head of Real Estate investments for Charlotte based Wachovia Bank, which cratered in October 2008 and is now part of California based Wells Fargo Bank. He bolted Wachovia four months before the bank was siezed, and he joined the infamous Carlyle Group and has since moved back to New York City.. https://www.linkedin.com/in/tom-wickwire-22669545.

Abstract: GEOMORPHIC IMPACT OF HURRICANE SANDY ON STATEN ISLAND, NY (Northeastern Section - 48th Annual Meeting (18-20 March...
Whereas hurricane Irene was primarily a rain event for Staten Island, Sandy was a storm surge event. In both cases the wind damage was small compared to most hurricanes. Hurricane Sandy is responsible for 43 deaths in NYC of which 53 % came from Staten Island. It is also responsible for massive destruction in the coastal region of Staten Island, NY. In natural settings, tidal marshes, bays, estuaries, coastal dune fields, and barrier islands dissipate the storms energy. In the New York area, marshes and bays, like Jamaica Bay, act as a natural sponge to absorb the energy of the wind and storm surge. Unfortunately, in New York, and on the eastern shore of Staten Island, like many urban areas, we have hardscaped the sponge with roads, parking lots, housing developments, stores, hospitals, schools, bridges, trains and all elements of urbanization. This comes at a cost when these structures absorb the energy. There is a place for seawalls, barriers, storm doors and other engineering marvels. ...

173 Acres. The small Quarryville Brook flows through this wooded property. Years ago the site was active farm and pasture land. A small farm pond created long ago still proves to be a productive fishing hole. Little green heron and great blue heron fish here as well. The upland forests were planned for a housing development, and some land clearing and road grading had begun. Since being acquired by the Green Acres Program, the forests have reestablished. Young sugar maples, gray birch and red oaks have sprouted and offer brushy habitat ideal for yellow-throated warbler and red-eyed vireo. Old stone walls follow historic farm lanes lined with mature sugar maple trees. These make handy foot trails for visitors. Much of the site is part of an extensive red maple swamp.

CORAL REEF COMPENDIUM: June 2017
Empirically, as an avid diver-I can attest to the fact that inshore reefs are very likely affected by run off. Ive been diving at an unusually inshore reef with huge coral mounts not 20 m from shore since the early 80s which was almost inaccessible as it was on the side of a small mountain in the carribean with only 3 houses nearby and a sheer dirt road that was often washed out. The reef was healthy and vibrant until 2013 when a high end housing development went up complete with a paved road. The effect was immediate as the reef went from vibrant reds, yellows, greens and blues to dull gray. The coral closest to shore was the most affected with another swath of graying coral that went well out to 100 m from shore which I couldnt quite figure out until I saw it rain which produced a huge outflow that ran along a rock jetty as a current which ran identical to the swath of dead coral. The coral has become progressively grey with each visit being worse than the last although the most affected ...
NCJRS Abstract - National Criminal Justice Reference Service
The program was a cooperative effort by Jersey Citys Public Housing Authority and Police Department to reduce serious crime (violent, drug, and property crimes in particular) at three high-rise and three low-rise housing sites. The study attempted to answer three broad research questions: (1) the effect of the problem-oriented policing program on serious crime both across and within the study sites; (2) the types of problem-solving responses that were effective; and (3) differences in the effectiveness of problem-oriented policing across different categories of crime. The article reviews past efforts to control crime in public housing; describes the Jersey City program; summarizes the evaluation data; and describes the analytic strategy. It also presents and discusses research findings as well as the theoretical, methodological, and practical implications of the research. Notes, tables, figures, references ...

Landlord/Tenant: two cultures, no mutual comprehension - LandlordZONE Forums
I often read on this forum that either the tenant or the landlord have ripped each other off.My own opinion is that we now have two cultures the landlord and the tenant.The tenant who thinks he can live rent free and the landlord who thinks he can flout the law by making unreasonable deductions from monies that he is holding.Perhaps someone can tell me why Landlords and Tenants cant come to a compromise.A friend of mine issued a S21 NOTICE on the 15th of Febuary this year ending on the 13th May,the tenant refused to leave the property after the the court granted an order on the 4th Aug today he has been granted a baliffs warrent.Obviously that is a problem with the system.But yet another problem from information gained from the landlord of the local pub across the road the tenant moved out on the 21st August.So now my friend has lost out on rent,court costs etc.Isnt it about time attitudes changed from both landlords and tenants + isnt it about time the law was changed to make it ...
Relf Sisters Involuntary Sterilization Sparks Lawsuit, Reform in Alabama | EJI, Equal Justice Initiative
By EJI Staff, EJI, Equal Justice Initiative. On June 14, 1973, fourteen-year-old Minnie Lee Relf and her twelve-year-old mentally disabled sister, Mary Alice, were sterilized without their knowledge or consent after nurses with the Montgomery Family Planning Clinic - a federally-funded agency - deceived their illiterate mother into believing that she was agreeing to have the girls receive birth control shots.. Two years earlier, after moving into public housing with their family, Mary Alice, Minnie Lee, and their older sister, Katie, had been administered experimental birth control injections by the local family clinic without their informed consent and initially without their parents consent. After the federal government ended the experimental birth control trials, clinic nurses decided that the girls should be sterilized. The clinic targeted the girls for the procedure because they were poor, black, and living in public housing. More cognitively advanced than her younger sisters, Katie ...
Who is Zanvyl Krieger?
By turns a distiller, a lawyer, and an extremely successful business entrepreneur, Zanvyl Krieger made his name best known as an extraordinary philanthropist. His greatest single gift was a $50 million challenge grant, made in 1992, to the School of Arts and Sciences of the Johns Hopkins University. The gift is one of the largest ever directed exclusively to a U.S. school or college of arts and sciences, the division of a university that focuses on the humanities, social sciences, and natural sciences. To pay fitting tribute, Hopkins renamed its core institution, so that it is now the Zanvyl Krieger School of Arts and Sciences.. Krieger was a life-long Baltimorean with committed civic ties. He played an ownership role in both the Baltimore Orioles and the Baltimore Colts.

All I know is were being evicted.. Nothing has been served to us, said Tom Anderson, a tenant who spoke at the rally. If there was a notice put on your door, he [Maldonado] took it off before we could see it.. Maria Machetes, another tenant, said that she saw eviction notices posted on the premise in early May because she works in the morning, but was assured by Maldonado that it would all be handled. He told us that everything would be okay, that he was taking care of it, she said.. The tenants believe that Aquilina and Maldonado colluded to remove them, saying that a settlement between the two allows Maldonado to remain.

How to pre-qualify potential tenants
How do you make sure the applicant fulfills the income and credit requirements to rent from you? Many landlords simply arrange to meet the tenant at the tenants convenience and only after showing the unit and answering the tenants questions do they ask for a credit application. This can be a huge hassle and waste of time if the tenant does not qualify.

An obvious consequence of the tenurial system is that a number of persons had interests of some sort in the same parcel of land. Confining attention for the time being simply to freeholders, at the bottom of the feudal ladder there was a tenant who had seisin of the land and was called the tenant in demesne, and at the top there was the King. In between there may have been a string of mesne lords, who were lords and tenants at the same time. This all posed something of a problem in analysis of the early lawyers, and the problem might have been solved in a variety of ways. One solution would have been to conceive of the tenant in demesne as the owner of the land. But this was not the way in which the position was looked at, and perhaps the explanation lies in the materialism which is a striking feature of medieval legal thought in England.
