Also back is Spain forward Marcos Asensio, who should ease the burden on Karim Benzema, their runaway leading scorer with 14 strikes.Barca leading the La Liga title race currentlyBarca, targeting a third consecutive Spanish title, led Real by two points when the season was postponed. The break has also given their ageing squad some much-needed rest, while the extra time on the training ground should help them further adapt to the ideas of coach Quique Setien, who succeeded Ernesto Valverde in January.With no fans allowed into venues and Real playing their home games at the 6,000-capacity Alfredo Di Stefano stadium while the Santiago Bernabeu is being refurbished, it will be a title race unlike any other.“We will miss that boost and support you get from the crowd, who have a huge influence,” said Setien.Barca have a slightly more comfortable run-in in their remaining 11 fixtures in the space of five weeks, with home games against Athletic Bilbao and Atletico Madrid plus trips to Sevilla and Villarreal looking like their toughest games. Real, who beat Barca in March only to blow their lead at the top by losing to Real Betis, have five potentially tricky fixtures: Valencia, Getafe and Villarreal at home, plus trips to Real Sociedad and Athletic Bilbao.“It would be strange to say we are worse than Barca after we beat them just before we went into confinement,” said Real goalkeeper Thibaut Courtois.“Even though we then lost to Betis, I think we’re in good shape. We’re all really excited about starting the league season again and fighting for the championship and winning it.”Where the fans can catch the entire La Liga Action in IndiaThe Indian fans of Spanish football can catch the entire action on Facebook La Liga page.

Barcelona and Real Madrid resume one of the tightest title races in recent memory when La Liga kicks back into action this week in empty stadiums, after a three-month pause due to the coronavirus pandemic. Just before the season was postponed on March 10, former Real great Jorge Valdano had likened the two teams’ inconsistent form to a race between two limping men, but both sides are set to be refreshed and stronger after the long break.Barca are boosted by the return of Luis Suarez from a knee injury that looked set to rule him out for the season, and his aggression and power should help them ease their problems in breaking down sides.

VanHook, II as Executive Director Episcopal Charities of the Diocese of New York David Burwell Johnson says: Rector Tampa, FL [Episcopal News Service] This is the last in a series of interviews ENS is publishing during Black History Month featuring interviews with Episcopalians involved in the civil rights movement and the church’s work of reconciliation.A lifelong Philadelphia resident, the Rev. Sadie Mitchell says she never experienced the blatant discrimination that African-Americans did in the South, nor did the civil rights movement bring the sort of unrest to her city that it did to places like Selma, Alabama.But, at 91, she admits to occasional impatience with the pace of full desegregation in the church and the rest of American society.“Who wouldn’t get impatient when you want something and it’s not readily available?” she asked.Living in Philadelphia, she said, “I was not restricted any place where I went.” If some place did discriminate against African-Americans, “my mother always protected us.”“There was a movie [house] in West Philadelphia that directed black children to the balcony,” she recalled. Her mother didn’t let her go there.Most restaurants served all races, she said. “I would say in a city as big as Philadelphia, you had maybe three or four restaurants that may not have allowed blacks in their restaurants, and they were on Broad Street and in Center City, mostly. That went away so fast when civil rights began its movement that it made no dent in my life at all.”But that doesn’t mean there weren’t inequities. “We were not as blatant in the discrimination and segregation on the North … but they still went on. For instance, we had black schools and white schools. Nobody ever speaks of that, but we did. There were certain schools in certain areas that were considered all black. No white children attended those schools at all.”Schools in northeast Philadelphia were all white unless black families with children moved to the neighborhood, she said.After the civil rights movement began, “after all that was going on in the South, the tenor seemed to change and you had a different thinking of whites – some whites, not all whites – and [black] children were allowed to come up to those schools, but not in droves, not in large numbers until the schools were [legally] demanded to desegregate and they were demanded to use buses to desegregate,” she said. “When they started doing that, you had white children coming into certain black schools in certain areas, and you had black children going into certain white schools by bus in the northeast, and then little by little, with faculty and students, you began to have some desegregation.”From 1969 to the late 1980s, Mitchell served as principal at three all-black schools in succession, the first located in a white neighborhood. While many people claimed that educational inequities existed between Philadelphia’s black and white schools, the differences were “not quite as dire” as in the South.“There were not inequities in my three schools,” she said. “I knew how much money I was getting, and I knew how to order the books and other materials, so I never allowed us to have a dearth of materials.”Educational directives came from the state, “so everyone was to teach the same thing. Now what we did teach in the black schools, which some of the white schools refused to teach … was black history.”Mitchell participated in one civil rights march, part of a successful effort to break the will that restricted admission to Girard College. “That was not a real college. They called it a college, but it was a school for white boys only,” she explained.The march was “very quiet,” she said. “Except for talking, you didn’t hear a sound. There was no violence. We just walked with banners.“That was the only march I took place in. I did not go down to the South for the marches down there.” But the Rev. Jesse Anderson Sr., rector of the African Episcopal Church of St. Thomas that she attended, did march in the South and also invited the Rev. Martin Luther King Jr. to speak at the church. The Rev. Absalom Jones, first black priest ordained in the Episcopal Church, founded St. Thomas in 1792.Mitchell supported the movement and King’s nonviolent philosophy. “The movement was something that needed to be pushed and pushed and pushed, because it was time. From slavery times until now, it was time for some movement to take place. I was all in favor without any equivocation, but not in favor of the violence.”On the night King was assassinated in 1968, Mitchell was attending a meeting at a school as assistant to the district superintendent. “The program was stopped. We were allowed to leave early … because everyone was up in arms about this death, and they just couldn’t believe it. These were whites and blacks, mostly whites.”Although she worked in education, Mitchell long had been interested in the ministry and felt “the call” following the “irregular” ordination of 11 women to the priesthood in Philadelphia in 1974. General Convention subsequently approved women’s ordination in 1976. She was ordained a deacon in 1987 and a priest in 1988, becoming an assistant at St. Thomas a year later. Although retired from that position, “Pastor Sadie” continues to serve in the parish.“Priests do not retire,” she said. “You just get up there when you can.”While still a member of the laity, she served on the diocesan Restitution Commission, formed in response to civil rights leader James Foreman’s “demand that the ‘white church’ supply reparations to the black community,” said Arthur Sudler, director of the St. Thomas Historical Society. “In large measure the RC mirrored the church’s controversial General Convention Special Program inaugurated by Presiding Bishop John E. Hines” to combat poverty and injustice in black urban areas.“The black members of the RC disagreed amongst themselves about the way in which the organization should operate – especially in regard to the issuance of funds to community organizations,” Sudler said.Ultimately, Mitchell and Anderson, also a member, left the commission. “I do not feel that we had enough knowledge of what we were doing,” she said. “We seemed to be floundering … it didn’t go anyplace.”Today, she said, “the churches are still segregated, but the segregation is lessening, because you don’t have white people afraid to come into black churches anymore, and you don’t have black people afraid to go into white churches anymore. … We have quite a few whites who have joined St. Thomas, and that’s considered an all-black church.”But she perceives a lack of leadership by some clergy in combating segregation beyond participating in the civil rights marches. There are white clergy who “will not speak out in their churches,” she said. “Now, that is not everybody, but that’s enough to make a problem. They didn’t speak out before, and they’re not speaking out now. So you have pockets of segregation, where if the priest would open his mouth and talk to his congregation, he could bring something about. … You still have clear white pockets all over in every diocese across the country.”“A lot more has to be done to recognize full equality,” she said. “But it is moving, and like all progress, it is slow.”In the broader society, she said she was surprised but happy when President Barack Obama became president, “but I think what is going on now is a disgrace,” she said, citing verbal attacks on him that she believes are racially motivated. “I just decry all of that, and I wish it would be over.”But she remains optimistic about the future of race relations.“I do feel hopeful, even though it’s taking a long time. I feel hopeful that this situation is going to right itself, and I do believe God is working in his timeframe, taking the time to see all this through and coming to a point where it meets his live and his peace,” she said. “The peace of God and the love of God, I feel, will shine through. But I think God is taking his time to do that.”“I’ll never see desegregation fully,” she predicted, “but I hope to see more of it within the few years that I have. And it is happening every day. It is happening every day in some place or some places.”—Sharon Sheridan is an ENS correspondent.

The house is all about space and light.Developed by the section it has a continuous space stretching out over the total height (12 mts), length and width of the building: from entrance hall and playing area to a music level to a living room with an open bath to a reading area to the kitchen with terrace.Save this picture!© Anja BüchnerThis open space is zoned by two concrete elements ‘hung’ between the firewalls.

According to the site along the former wall – the no-man’s land between East and West – now the Berlin Wall Memorial, the house has a severe outside contrasting the coloured balcony houses opposite in the former West.Save this picture!© Anja BüchnerThe house is built on a trapezoid lot of land of 118 m2 with a small garden in the southeast towards a residential path and the wide side of the house to the northwest facing the plain of the Berlin Wall Memorial which is mainly a park.Save this picture!© Anja BüchnerIt’s part of a settlement of 16 townhouses, the two neighbouring houses are by XTH-berlin as well.Save this picture!© Anja BüchnerThe nearly all-over glazed facades are structured by steel girders, which span from one dividing wall to the other and take over the cross bracing. Two lines of fringy draperies in front of the ground and second floor provide screen and cover the windowframes.

Few steps up you reach the music area, a gallery with a horizontal net as a fall protection.

Approximately 27.8 million consumers held all three loans as of Q3 2020, and mortgages were clearly prioritized over the other credit products.The pandemic has caused even greater prioritization of mortgages over the other credit products as remote work situations forced Americans to stay in place and work from home.For those consumers possessing auto loans, credit cards, and mortgages, the 30+ days past due delinquency rate at 12 months following observation was lowest for mortgages, at 0.75%, as of Q3 2020. Auto loans had the second lowest delinquency rate at 1.13%, followed by credit cards at 1.95%. This is very likely connected to the growth in home prices over the last several years, as housing markets across the country have remained strong, and consumers’ desire to protect the equity in their homes. As well, as lockdowns and the shift to work/school from home permeated during the pandemic, keeping current on home loan payments took on increased importance in 2020.“Mortgage is once again the clear priority for U.S. borrowers,” said Matt Komos, TransUnion’s Head of Research and Consulting in the U.S. “The mantra, ‘you can’t drive your home to work’ doesn’t have the same effect when millions of Americans are waking up, showering, eating breakfast, and taking only a few steps to their home office.”In addition to more people working from home and rising home values, mortgage loan performance is likely benefitting from thousands of mortgage borrowers entering accommodation programs soon after the onset of the pandemic. The study points to both subprime and near prime credit risk mortgage borrowers benefitting the most from these programs as they were able to delay payments and maintain their accounts.“TransUnion has tracked payment hierarchy dynamics for more than a decade, including how these patterns changed in the U.S. following the Great Recession and in many other countries when they have encountered localized financial challenges,” said Charlie Wise, head of global research and consulting at TransUnion. “This study is unique in that it highlights how and why payment dynamics changed in different countries as a result of the COVID-19 pandemic—a global crisis that has impacted consumers worldwide. These insights will better equip both financial institutions and consumers, fostering more trustworthy interactions between them as the world begins to normalize and recover from the pandemic.”According to the study, the negative implication of a missed payment to a credit score was understood most by credit card and personal loan holders, as approximately 68% of credit card holders and 65% of consumers with personal loans said a consequence of a missed payment would result in a lower credit score. Comparatively, consumers with auto loans (55%) and mortgages (57%) were not as aware of this consequence.Click here to read more about TransUnion’s Global Payment Hierarchy study.
