World Cup 2019 final: England, New Zealand seek history and bragging rights

first_img Next Akshay Ramesh New DelhiJuly 14, 2019UPDATED: July 14, 2019 09:42 IST England and New Zealand renew their rivalry in the World Cup 2019 final. (Twitter: Cricket World Cup)HIGHLIGHTSCricket will have its new world champion in the 50-over format after 23 years on SundayEngland face New Zealand in World Cup 2019 final on Sunday at Lord’sEngland have been billed as favourites but write off New Zealand at your own perilEoin Morgan was watching from the Adelaide Oval dressing room when Rubel Hossain knocked James Anderson’s stumps off the pitch and sent England crashing out of the 2015 World Cup. England’s campaign in Australia was a major disappointment as they bowed out as early as the group stages that was tailor-made for top teams to progress.Cut to 2019, Eoin Morgan is on the cusp of becoming the first-ever captain from England to win the men’s 50-over World title.Eoin Morgan himself conceded that he would not have believed you had you told him that England would play in the final of World Cup 2019 after their performances in Australia 4 years ago.It’s been a massive change — change in personnel, change in the way England and Wales Cricket Board dealt with the domestic structure, change in the selection policies and more importantly change in the senior national side’s approach to the 50-over format.Eoin Morgan’s men have played a brand of 50-over cricket over the last 4 years that has never been associated with English sides in the past– aggressive, full of intent and imposing.Led by Morgan, one of the most astute reads of the game, the young England side has helped reignite the dreams back in the country. “It’s coming home!”England started the tournament as favourites and it is safe to say they have lived up to the billing. The hosts were in danger of getting knocked out early after losses to Sri Lanka and Australia but the way they have fought back from the setbacks speaks volumes about the character of the team.advertisementEngland had to bounce back and they did so in emphatic style by handing India a 31-run in Edgbaston before clinching a comfortable win against their Sunday’s opponents by 119 runs in Chester-le-Street.If there was any doubt about this England side’s ability to handle the big moments, their 8-wicket thrashing of Australia, who had never lost a World Cup semi-final before Thursday, in the semi-final is a testament to their ruthless intent.More than 5 of their batsmen have scored over 350 runs, 2 of their new-ball bowlers are among the top 10 wicket-takers in the tournament. Their openers are firing, all-rounders are chipping in, pacers are hitting the batsman’s bat (helmets) hard and their spinner is bamboozling batsmen in the middle overs. What a time to be an England cricket fan!Can Morgan help extend England’s fairytale into the big final as well? What about the pressure of expectations? Over the years, only 2 teams have won World Cups at home — India in 2011 and Australia in 2015.Chants of “it’s coming home” are a year after they were heard on the streets of London, Manchester, Birmingham et al.Is the support going to be England’s strength or is the burden of expectations going to prove too much to handle in the end?Sunday’s final will be their most important match in more than 2 decades and they face New Zealand, who are World Cup virgins as well despite having made 8 semi-finals in 12 editions.New Zealand, unlike England, scraped through to the final. While England’s demolition of Australia in Edgbaston was a statement in itself, New Zealand’s astute reading of the Manchester pitch and execution of their skills in their 18-run win over Virat Kohli’s India is one as well.Their top-order hasn’t fired. Their middle-order has been inconsistent. However, Williamson and their new-ball bowlers have been on top of their games in England so far.In Kane Williamson, New Zealand have one of the coolest and sharpest minds of the game. It’s not an exaggeration to say the skipper has carried his team on the shoulders single-handedly into the final.Williamson has been their top-scorer, their crisis man, their leader who has never backed down from a fight in World Cup 2019. The soft-spoken Kane has one final fight at the Home of Cricket on Sunday.Can he achieve what Brendon McCullum could not 4 years ago?New Zealand are once again being considered underdogs for the final but as Williamson stresses, regardless of the breed of the dog, you have to play good cricket in the final. New Zealand have been doing so in crunch moments so far. Can they do it one more time?ALSO READ | World Cup 2019 Final: England’s batting might up against New Zealand’s fearsome bowling as history beckonsALSO READ | England vs New Zealand, World Cup head-to-head: Kiwis hold the edge over hosts in final showdownALSO WATCH:For sports news, updates, live scores and cricket fixtures, log on to Like us on Facebook or follow us on Twitter for Sports news, scores and updates.Get real-time alerts and all the news on your phone with the all-new India Today app. Download from Post your comment Do You Like This Story?

How LSU And Oklahoma Can Still Make The College Football Playoff

Then Saturday came around, and just like that, two of those squads (LSU and Oklahoma) were knocked down more than a few rungs on the championship ladder. So how can the Tigers and Sooners climb their way back toward the top?In each remaining week of the season, we’ll break down what one team — or, in today’s case, two — needs to have happen in order for it to make the College Football Playoff. Primarily, we’ll be looking at how much each remaining game on the team’s schedule (and other teams’ schedules as well) potentially swings its playoff probability.Louisiana StateCurrent playoff chances: 4 percentWhat it can do: Losing to Florida dropped LSU’s playoff chances from 11 percent to 4 percent, giving the Tigers very little margin for error from here on out. The good news in Baton Rouge, though, is that they still basically control their own destiny — one of the fringe benefits of having an impossibly tough SEC schedule. If LSU wins out, our model says it would have a greater than 99 percent chance of making the playoff, making it one of only five schools (joining Georgia, Alabama, Ohio State and Clemson) whose playoff chances are that high if they go the rest of the season without a loss. Of course, that’s a lot easier said than done: Even after putting the Gators behind it, LSU still has four more ranked opponents left on its regular-season schedule, plus whomever it might play in the SEC title game (if the Tigers get there). At the same time, just one more loss would basically doom LSU, leaving its playoff probability at the end of the season at just 16 percent even if it finishes 10-2. Practically speaking, Ed Orgeron’s team really does have no choice but to keep winning.Who can help it: After allowing LSU to storm back from down 21-10 to beat it in September, Auburn could end up doing its SEC West rivals yet another favor by winning the Iron Bowl over Alabama in late November. LSU’s chances of making the playoff are about 3 percentage points higher in our simulations where Auburn beats Alabama than vice versa. In fact, any Alabama loss would generally help LSU’s chances of making the playoff because it would give the Tigers the edge over the Tide in the division (assuming they beat the Tide themselves in Death Valley on Nov. 3). One other thing is also clear: Alabama and Georgia’s playoff bids are basically incompatible with LSU’s. Conditional on the Tigers making the playoff, there’s only a 23 percent chance that Alabama also makes it and a 14 percent chance for Georgia. Even the SEC can contain only so many playoff contenders. Outside the conference, Texas and Penn State are teams with similar playoff bona fides who would theoretically be competing with LSU for an outside shot at the final playoff slot, so slip-ups by the Longhorns or Nittany Lions also slightly help the Tigers. But even so, most non-LSU games won’t move the Tigers’ needle much, meaning they’ll mostly have to forge a path to the playoff for themselves. 11LSUArkansas+0.7-3.41.2 7LSUGeorgia+7.1-3.04.2 * Relative to team’s current oddsBased on two sets of simulations: one in which the team wins and one in which it loses.

Virginia+12.2%-14.2%+/-13.1 WKTeamOpponentw/ Winw/ LossWeighted 9TexasOklahoma St.-1.4+1.71.6 OklahomaCurrent playoff chances: 17 percentWhat it can do: After losing the Red River Showdown to Texas on Saturday, the Sooners are less in the driver’s seat than LSU in terms of controlling their own postseason destiny. Even if Oklahoma wins all its remaining games, our model still gives the Sooners only an 85 percent chance of making the playoff. That’s not too terrible, though, given that Kyler Murray and company have a relatively manageable remaining schedule that includes only one ranked opponent. That matchup — a Nov. 23 battle against West Virginia in Morgantown — could swing Oklahoma’s season more than any other game, with our model calling for an average change to the Sooners’ playoff chances of plus or minus 13 percentage points, depending on whether they can beat the Mountaineers. In the universe where OU does win that one, the Sooners make the playoff 29 percent of the time; in the ones where they don’t, that number is 2 percent.Who can help them: Because they’re not quite the locks that some other top teams are, Oklahoma will probably need another big-time contender to falter. And according to our model, that team is most likely Notre Dame. Aside from West Virginia and Texas, whose hopes each rest on outdueling the Sooners for the Big 12 title, the Fighting Irish are the team whose playoff chances drop the most in simulated universes where Oklahoma makes the playoff. Unfortunately for the Sooners, Notre Dame has a 39 percent chance of navigating the rest of its schedule undefeated — tops among any team in the nation — while Oklahoma’s chances of winning out are only 14 percent. (That discrepancy is a big reason for Notre Dame’s 46 percent chance of making the playoff, while Oklahoma sits at 17 percent.) But a Notre Dame loss — most likely to Syracuse, USC or Northwestern — would do the Sooners a big favor in their struggle to regain position in the playoff race. 13AlabamaAuburn-0.5+2.60.8 * Relative to the team’s current oddsBased on two sets of simulations: one in which the team wins and one in which it loses.

Taxpayers paid £24m to renovate Duke and Duchess of Sussexs Frogmore Cottage

Prince Harry and Meghan Markle previously lived at Nottingham Cottage, part of Kensington Palace Frogmore Cottage, in the grounds of Frogmore HouseCredit:Getty Frogmore Cottage Prince Harry and Meghan Markle previously lived at Nottingham Cottage, part of Kensington Palace While the Cambridge’s large apartment is private, other areas of the Kensington Palace building are given over to offices and used for official hosting and events, with other members of the family also residing there.  The renovation took around six months and was completed shortly before the Duke and Duchess’ son Archie was born on May 6, but some works – including painting the exterior – will fall in the next financial year.Frogmore Cottage, which is owned by the Crown Estate, was a gift from the Queen who has been “informed of the progress of the project”, a source said.A similar refurbishment for Apartment 1A of Kensington Palace in 2013-4 for the Duke and Duchess of Cambridge and their children ended up costing around £4.5 million across two financial years.The Cambridge’s official residence, previously the home of Princess Margaret, required major roof repairs and asbestos removal. The Duke and Duchess paid privately for a second family kitchen to supplement the “working kitchen” used for official events. Frogmore Cottage The Duke and Duchess of Sussex’s new home of Frogmore Cottage has cost £2.4 million of public funds to renovate so far, according to this year’s Royal accounts.The cottage has been remodelled from five separate living quarters into one large official residence for the couple and their son Archie, paid for largely by the Sovereign Grant.While the couple have paid for any upgraded fixtures and fittings themselves, the public fund has met the cost of replacing heating, electric, gas and water main systems, as well as replacing ceiling beams and floor joists.They were also able to install a “certain standard” of kitchen, bathroom, flooring and fitted furniture from the grant, with the cost of anything considered a “higher spec” than the approved palace quality being met by the Duke and Duchess privately.The Frogmore Cottage restructure, approved so that the couple could move out of Kensington Palace into a family home before Archie was born, contributed to a total £67 million expenditure towards the maintenance of royal palaces and the official duties of the Queen. “The Sovereign Grant covered the work undertaken to turn the building into the official residence and home of the Duke and Duchess of Sussex and their new family.”The building was returned to a single residence and outdated infrastructure was replaced to guarantee the long-term future of the property.”Substantially all fixtures and fittings were paid for by Their Royal Highnesses.” The Sussexes had their wedding reception at Frogmore The Sussexes had their wedding reception at FrogmoreCredit:Chris Allerton A report, published by Buckingham Palace, disclosed the total Sovereign Grant for 2018/9 was £82.2m: equivalent to £1.24 per person in the UK.   Frogmore Cottage is to be “the official and only residence” of the Duke and Duchess of Sussex, used as their home while their staff are based at Buckingham Palace.The cost of the remaining renovations will be reported next year only if it reaches a new £350,000 threshold for individual projects.Until this year, the figure had been set at £250,000. Of the 176 building projects on the royal estate this year, 13 spent in excess of £350,000 to qualify as major works to be explained in greater details in the public report. Frogmore Cottage, in the grounds of Frogmore House Sir Michael Stevens, Keeper of the Privy Purse, who is responsible for monarchy’s accounts, said of Frogmore Cottage: “The property had not been the subject of work for some years and had already been earmarked for renovation in line with our responsibility to maintain the condition of the occupied royal palaces estate. Net expenditure has risen significantly from £47.4m in 2017/8 to £67m, thanks to an extra £15m for the major reservicing of Bukingham Palace itself.The cost of the Royal wedding, as well as additional expenses incurred since the Duchess of Sussex officially married into the Royal Family in May 2018, were included within the accounts of the Duchy of Cornwall, the Prince of Wales’ estate which funds his two sons and their families.It reported that the Prince’s bill for the Sussexes’ and the Cambridges’ activities, plus “capital expenditure and transfer to reserves”, was £5.05 million in 2018/9, a slight increase from 2017/8 and more than £1.5 million more than the £3.5 million in 2016/7.The Prince’s “non-official expenditure” increased year-on-year by £155,000 to £3.16 million, funded by his estate. Aides insisted the financial details of the running of the Cambridge and Sussex’s working lives were to remain private despite their increasing workload. read more

BGC uses Ada 3D holographic platform to showcase Giant Mine remediation

first_imgTo date, BGC has completed over 25 projects for clients with Ada across various sectors, including mining, transportation and utilities, with many more in the pipeline. BGC Engineering Inc and Crown-Indigenous Relations and Northern Affairs Canada (CIRNAC) recently used BGC’s Ada Platform to provide residents with a 3D view of remediation work underway at the now closed Giant Mine near Yellowknife, Northwest Territories.Ada is a mixed reality software platform that allows stakeholders to view a project environment before, during and after construction through 3D holographic models. Ada is usable on the Microsoft HoloLens, the world’s first self-contained wearable holographic computer, and combines terrain and survey data, engineering designs, and real-time computer graphics. It enables experts and community members to walk around and interact with a virtual version of a project from any angle or point in time.“At BGC, we are committed to innovation and pushing the boundaries of modern-day applied earth science,” said Matt Lato, Senior Geotechnical Engineer, BGC Engineering. “With Ada, we worked directly with CIRNAC and the local community to foster better understanding and collaboration for an important environmental project. We are excited about the possibilities Ada offers to help companies and communities have meaningful and mutually beneficial discussions on major mining, infrastructure and remediation projects.”Giant Mine is an abandoned gold mine with a legacy of environmental concerns. One of the most notable issues is 237,000 tons of arsenic trioxide waste stored underground. The Giant Mine Remediation Project is a 10-year, $900 million cleanup focused on managing the arsenic trioxide waste and remediating the entire site.As the mine is more than 600 m deep and 5 km long with a labyrinth of underground passages, it was difficult for CIRNAC to demonstrate the scope of the remediation project and describe how the team is working to protect the environment. By using Ada at community meetings, BGC and CIRNAC were able to help residents better understand the complexities of this project.“At CIRNAC, we were challenged with communicating and demonstrating the ongoing work and eventual impact of the remediation project for community members using complex 2D maps, drawings and schematics, so we were excited to hear about BGC’s Ada Platform,” said Chris MacInnis, Engineering Manager, CIRNAC. “With Ada, community members were able to ‘see’ the remediation work happening 600 m below ground in a simple, lifelike 3D environment and easily understand how the arsenic trioxide was being contained.”BGC named this platform after Ada Lovelace, a visionary who saw the potential of modern-day computing. Similarly, with Ada, BGC is realising the potential of mixed reality for the future of applied earth sciences.“It’s amazing to see how BGC’s innovative Ada Platform has leveraged Microsoft HoloLens technology to bring complex infrastructure projects to life in a way that simplifies, captures attention and creates better understanding,” said Mark Speaker, Industry Solutions Executive, Microsoft Canada. “At Microsoft, we believe that mixed reality has the potential to transform the way people communicate, collaborate and explore. Like BGC, we’re excited about the opportunities that mixed reality brings to the future of mining.”last_img read more

Share46 Tweet Email Source: FAI CEO John Delaney has refused to answer questions from the Oireachtas Sports Committee on the issue of his €100,000 loan to the Association.The newly-installed executive vice-president is part of an FAI delegation which is appearing at Leinster House today.  Delaney was expected to fully explain the transaction but he insists he can’t answer politicians’ questions due to legal advice. “On legal advice I am precluded from making any further comments at this hearing in relation to the finances of the Association or my former role as CEO or the €100,000 payment either directly or indirectly. “In the interests of fair proceedings and natural justice, while I have made this statement to the Committee and have attended this meeting voluntarily as I have attended many Oireachtas Committees in the past. I am not in a position to answer any such questions at this time. “Given that some members of this Committee have made highly prejudicial public pronouncements about me personally prior to my attendance here today and in light of the recent Supreme Court ruling in the Kerins case, I would ask that the Committee respects this position.”A case taken by former Rehab CEO Angela Kerins against the public accounts committee is currently under considering by the Supreme Court. The former chief executive says he is saddened by Sport Ireland’s decision to withdraw funding from the FAI and on the €100,000 loan says in his statement: “I was advised at this meeting [on 25 April 2017] that if all cheques and FAI bank transfers issued to third parties at that time were presented for payment, the FAI would exceed its overdraft limit of €1.5 million on its bank account which was held with Bank of Ireland.

I recall thinking at the time, if I had been approached even a few days earlier, I may have been able to better address the issue.“As the matter was pressing and we had only a few hours to resolve potential issues that would arise if the bank overdraft was exceeded, as a precautionary measure and to assist the FAI, I wrote a cheque for €100,000 from my personal current account to the FAI.”“On Monday 4 March 2019,” he continues, “I informed the board of the FAI of the precautionary payment I had made following a media query received from The Sunday Times.”“I accept that the overdraft issue arose on my watch. I wish it hadn’t happened, but I acted in the best interest of the association.”last_img read more

Triple H on why Shinsuke Nakamura remains in NXT, the growth of NXT in…

first_img Is WWE Losing Its Audience? NXT has an easier schedule lol December 27, 2016 at 10:13 pm 3 COMMENTS December 27, 2016 at 4:57 am Videos Articles I hear this argument all over the place about guys like Shinsuke, Roode, Aries and Joe. It’s been pretty obvious for quite a while that NXT is becoming a third money making brand for WWE, so they might not be anxious to strip it of every bit of talent that has previously established a name somewhere else in the world.

WhatsApp WALTER and Kassius Ohno set to compete at EVOLVE 135 and 136 Live Events Nicolas Atkin of is featuring an interview with WWE COO Paul “Triple H” Levesque where he talks about why current NXT Champion Shinsuke Nakamura hasn’t been brought up to the main roster and the growth of the NXT brand in 2016.Triple H on why Shinsuke Nakamura remains in NXT“One of the things that’s funny to me — I always laugh at it — is when people say to me, ‘I watch Nakamura every week in NXT. I don’t know why they don’t put him on Raw so I can watch him on Raw every week. You’re getting to see him, right? You’re getting to see him doing what he does, in a big way. The opportunities are there. He’s got that clean path now to get here, when he gets here he might go there, he might go back.”The growth of NXT in 2016, why he considers it a third brand“We say that it’s developmental, but at the same time it’s a third brand — 200 events this year, specials and the weekly show itself which are one of the most popular things on the Network. I think over the years you’re gonna begin to see Raw is its own brand, SmackDown is its own brand, NXT — you’re gonna see people move around. It’s no longer gonna be just, this guy got called up, it’s gonna be maybe ‘this guy got moved over, she got moved here,’ and see that transference of talent. At the end of the day, it’s all content; it’s all product that our fans wanna see. The difference in those products is big, but there’s something there for everybody. I think that’s what’s exciting about it.”Recommended videosPowered by AnyClipWWE Rescheduling San Jose NXTVideo Player is loading.Play VideoPauseUnmuteDuration 0:38/Current Time 0:04Loaded: 100.00%0:05Remaining Time -0:34 FullscreenUp NextThis is a modal window.Beginning of dialog window.

Trades Union Bill Unions lobby parliament over controversial bill

first_imgClose The UK governments strike law is a fundamental attack on workers, and politicians of all stripes are worried about the legislation, according to Frances OGrady. The Trades Union Congress (TUC) general secretary also told IBTimes UK that the controversial Trades Union Bill had been pushed through without evidence or consultation.This bill also attacks union funds, there are large parts of it that werent written down in the Conservative Party manifesto, and of course the governments own independent regulatory policy committee said that this bill is not fit for purpose, she added.The comments come as the bill faces its report stage in the House of Commons on 10 November. The measure would mean, among other things, that workers would have to hit a 50% turnout threshold for a strike vote to be considered legal.But the government has argued that the legislation is fair and will help stop the disruption of public services. People have the right to know that the services on which they and their families rely will not be disrupted at short notice by strikes supported by a small proportion of union members, a spokesperson for the Department for Business said.The ability to strike is important but it is only fair that there should be a balance between the interests of union members and the needs of people who depend on their services.Hundreds of trade unionists turned out at Central Hall in Westminster to rally against the bill. The TUC also launched a new advertising campaign, which features a midwife, a firefighter and a cinema worker who have reluctantly taken strike action in recent years.The legislation has also proved controversial among some Tory backbenchers. David Davis, the former Conservative chairman and leadership contender, compared the bill to anti-trade union measures introduced by Spanish dictator General Franco.I agree with most of the Trade Union Bill – I think its very sensible, Davis told Sky News on 14 September. But there are bits of it which look OTT, like requiring pickets to give their names to the police force. What is this? This isnt Francos Britain, this is Queen Elizabeth IIs Britain.last_img read more

Regulators Shutter Georgia Bank 2014 Failure Count Hits 13

first_img in Daily Dose, Government, Headlines, News Share Regulators Shutter Georgia Bank; 2014 Failure Count Hits 13 Bank Failure FDIC Georgia Department of Banking and Finance 2014-07-21 Tory Barringercenter_img State and federal regulators announced Friday the closing of a Georgia bank, putting the 2014 national bank failure tally at 13.Georgia’s Department of Banking and Finance took possession of Conyers-based Eastside Commercial Bank, appointing FDIC as receiver.To protect depositors, Community & Southern Bank, based in Atlanta, has agreed to assume all of Eastside’s deposits, which were estimated at $161.6 million as of March 31. Community & Southern has also agreed to purchase $104.7 million of the collapsed bank’s estimated $169.0 million in total assets.FDIC also announced a separate transaction with Macon’s State Bank and Trust Company, which will purchase $42.6 million of Eastside’s loans.The remaining assets will be held by FDIC for later disposition.The cost of the bank failure is expected to impact FDIC’s Deposit Insurance Fund to the tune of $33.9 million, the regulator announced.Besides being the 13th FDIC-insured bank to fail so far this year, Eastside was the first to fall in Georgia in more than a year.While FDIC doesn’t make its list of Problem Banks open to the public, Eastside has sat on Calculated Risk’s unofficial list since 2009, when FDIC and the Georgia Department of Banking and Finance published a cease and desist order in alleging that Eastside was found to have “engaged in unsafe or unsound banking practices and had committed violations of regulations.” July 21, 2014 395 Views last_img read more

Forecast Housing to Follow Economy to Solid Ground

first_img Now that the overall economy is on more solid ground, Wells Fargo economists suggest that housing may soon follow in its footsteps, according to the group’s Housing Chartbook for October 2014.The second quarter real GDP growth was recently revised to a higher annualized rate of 4.6 percent, and the unemployment rate has fallen below 6 percent for the first time since 2008. Data on consumer spending and employment for the third quarter suggests that the economy will close out 2014 on a high note, according to Wells Fargo. The economists indicated in the report that they believe real GDP growth will average 3 percent per annum for the next two years.Improvement in the economy, however, has not translated into improvement for the housing market to date except for a few isolated markets such as Austin, Charlotte, and Nashville, all of which experienced strong employment and income growth, according to Wells Fargo’s report. New and existing home sales remain disappointing despite the improved economic conditions, with investors stepping away at a faster rate than traditional buyers are returning. Many new households choosing renting over buying, according to Wells Fargo.While some predict that the housing market is poised for more rentals than buys for years to come, particularly among millennials, Wells Fargo suggests the contrary. Because foreclosures, delinquencies, and mortgages in a negative equity position have all been steadily declining over the last few years, Wells Fargo economists predict that home sales will improve and the demand for mortgages will revive once households are more confident about income and employment. Tighter lending standards have prevented many from obtaining a mortgage loan, according to Wells Fargo.New home sales saw an 18 percent increase nationwide in August, sending them to their highest level since 2008. The Northeast and West experienced the largest gains in new home sales with 29.2 percent and 50 percent, respectively, according to Wells Fargo. The surge in new home sales matches the monthly gain in builder sentiment; the National Association of Home Builders (NAHB)/Wells Fargo Home Builder Sentiment Index jumped 4 points in September up to 59, its best score in nine years.Existing home sales fell off by 1.8 percent in August, but the decline in all-cash transactions (down 6 percentage points to 23 percent) suggests that investors are becoming less active in the housing market, according to Wells Fargo. in Daily Dose, Data, Headlines, News Confidence Existing-Home Sales Forecast New Home Sales Wells Fargo 2014-10-13 Seth Welborn Sharecenter_img Forecast: Housing to Follow Economy to Solid Ground October 13, 2014 438 Views last_img read more
