Sales of existing homes in counties with a higher share of vacation homes rose by 24% on average in 2020, more than double the 11% increase in counties that don’t have a high concentration of vacation homes. Home prices also appreciated more quickly in vacation home counties, gaining an average 14% last year, compared with the average 10% annual increase in non-vacation-home counties. As of 2019, about 10% of the 3,143 counties in the United States were vacation-home counties, according to the association here. In the next hottest market, Oscoda County, Michigan, home sales rose by 54% in 2020 and the median sales price increased by 79%, according to the report. The increased demand for vacation homes was sparked by the move to work from home and the shift to virtual schooling, which gave families the flexibility to relocate, the researchers said.

Builder sentiment in June fell to its lowest level since August, as construction costs pushed new home prices higher, sidelining buyers and making it harder for some builders to get loans. "Higher costs and declining availability for softwood lumber and other building materials pushed down builder sentiment in June," said NAHB Chairman Chuck Fowke, a homebuilder from Tampa, Florida. "These higher costs have moved some new homes beyond the budget of prospective buyers, which has slowed the strong pace of home building." While lumber prices are down about 10% from their recent peak, they are still about 300% higher than the 15-year average. These higher costs are passed on to buyers.

Immigration lawyers are overburdened as they deal with 1.3 million backlogged cases. The country's 500 immigration judges feel overburdened and under pressure to deport as more than 1.3 million cases have been backlogged at the end of the last administration and crossings into the country keep rising, NBC News reported. While federal trial judges are appointed for life, making it easier to make independent decisions, immigration judges are appointed and answer to the attorney general. "We are in the legal fight for our life to ensure that our decisional independence is valued and maintained," Judge Amiena Khan told NBC. "We should not be used as a tool of law enforcement," Judge Dana Leigh Marks told NBC.

They preside over asylum cases, meaning they decide who gets to stay in the U.S. and who must be deported. Immigration judges, however, are Justice Department employees who are appointed by and answer to the Attorney General, a political appointee.

This month, dozens of Democrats in Congress signed a letter to Attorney General Merrick Garland and Deputy Attorney General Lisa Monaco urging them to rescind Barr's petition.

Guevara, who came to the U.S. at age 6, said her parents struggled to get access to health care, which motivated her to study health care disparities, including the lack of Latino providers. Yet the number of Latino nurses is disproportionate to its demographic's size. Adrianna Nava is the president of the National Association of Hispanic Nurses.

(CNN) You can thank Netflix executive Carolina Garcia for helping bring shows like "Stranger Things" and "Chilling Adventures of Sabrina" to the streaming screen, but everyone else can thank Jack Bauer for Carolina Garcia. "Netflix has become very aware of where we as a company need to be better and have committed actual dollars to helping funnel that," Garcia said. Too often, Garcia said, Latinx stories are centered on pain or trauma, which is far from the whole story of the culture. This debate -- for example, whether only Latinx creators should tell Latinx stories -- is a complex one with heated opinions on both sides. Carolina Garcia, Director of Original Series at Netflix, wants to see Latinx stories and creators elevated.

I'm trying to buy a house and it's absolute hell

America's pandemic housing market features minuscule available inventory, outrageously-inflated home prices, and little new supply being built. And so the experience of trying to buy a home at the absolute least advantageous time for buyers has added yet another chapter in the perpetual saga of COVID-era misery. Frankly, waiving an inspection contingency is absolute madness unless you plan to knock the whole house down. Immediately put in a well-over-asking-price offer because the house will likely be under contract within a day or two. Yes, it could be so much worse, and I'm not trying to throw a pity party for my first world suffering.

Private equity and hedge funds have added to the fund's performance over the past 10 years, he said. The Ohio pension plan's holdings in private equity and hedge funds have stumbled. Private equity firms buy companies, borrowing money to do so, and hope to sell them at a profit later. In his research, Phalippou included rebuttals from private equity firms and a lobbying group that criticized his analysis, noting that investors are "highly satisfied" with private equity performance and disclosures. "The first issue is lack of transparency" in the pension plan's private equity and hedge fund investments, Rayfield said.

Uber and Lyft Ramp Up Legislative Efforts to Shield Business Model

Gig companies like Uber and Lyft have long resisted classifying workers as employees, stating in regulatory filings that doing so would force them to alter their business model and risk a financial hit. Industry officials have estimated that making drivers employees could raise labor costs 20 to 30 percent. But the talks collapsed because many in the labor movement refused to make significant concessions while holding the legislative upper hand. A number of rulings in New York granted gig drivers conventional unemployment benefits in the state, potentially leading to hundreds of millions of dollars in liabilities for the companies. And there were New York City regulations — like a minimum pay standard for drivers amounting to over $17 an hour after expenses — that some gig companies have sought to ease.

It limited the discharge of pollutants such as fertilizers, pesticides and industrial chemicals into those waters. In a statement on Wednesday Chuck Fowke, the chairman of the National Association of Homebuilders, expressed concern that changes to the water rule will “add unnecessary requirements” that will hurt housing affordability. “Communities deserve to have our nation’s waters protected,” Jaime A. Pinkham, the acting assistant Army secretary for civil work, said in a statement. He said the Trump-era rule resulted in a significant drop in determinations of waters that would otherwise have been afforded protection. Environmental groups and Democrats in Congress praised the announcement and pressed the administration to work quickly to unravel the Trump policy.

Western Michigan University has received a $550 million gift from a group of alumni, a record for a public university that more than doubles the school’s endowment. The foundation for the Kalamazoo, Mich., university will get $200 million earmarked for the main university, $300 million for its medical school and $50 million for athletics. The money will fund scholarships, medical research, student support programs and more, the school said. The combined endowments for Michigan State University and its foundation were $3.4 billion, and the University of Michigan’s endowment came in at $12.5 billion, in fiscal 2020, according to the report. By comparison, businessman Michael Bloomberg’s $1.8 billion gift to Johns Hopkins University in 2018 is the largest ever donation to any university—public or private—and Harvard University’s endowment is roughly 100 times as big as Western Michigan’s.

Do You Need to Do an Internship Before You Graduate From College?

How important is it for college students to complete an internship before graduation? The bottom lineCollege students who perform well in summer internships have long had an advantage with hiring managers once they graduate. Remote work and school during the pandemic made it harder for recruiters to connect with college students over the past year, so companies have become even more inclined to hire their interns for full-time positions, recruiters say, even if the internship was over Zoom. Employers were much more likely to make offers of full-time employment to Class of 2020 interns than they were to those who interned in previous years, according to data from the National Association of Colleges and Employers. Among eligible interns from the Class of 2020, 79.9% received offers, compared with 68% from the Class of 2019 and 70.4% from the Class of 2018.

The American Rescue Plan “is more about providing funding to help departments get back up to levels they need to be,” she said.

In Milwaukee, activists obtained spending figures from a city alderman’s office and found that the police department received just under $10 million in CARES Act relief.
