All the big team news, key issues and TV details you need for the Six Nations match between Scotland and Italy Stuart Hogg and Duhan Van Der Merwe tackle Italy centre Federico Mori (Getty Images) Six Nations Scotland v Italy PreviewIt’s a case of screaming “Everyone remain calm!” while fires are extinguished, 5G masts are erected again and politicians are allowed out of their underground bunkers. Stuart Hogg is starting at fly-half for Scotland.In October against Wales, Hogg had to slot in at ten for a stint and after the game he reportedly joked that he would prefer to stay at 15. At the team unveiling for this Italy encounter, his coach Gregor Townsend said with a smile: “He said he was misquoted! He said to me the next day that wasn’t what he meant…”Related: Stuart Hogg starts at fly-half for the first time for ScotlandFor some sage fans who have been calling for this for a while, convinced that fly-half is truly Hogg’s best position and that he has been held back for years, it’s time to see if the tin foil cap fits. For the rest of us, it’s time to see if Scotland can click again, just like they did against England and in spells against Wales. Because against Ireland last week, there was a lot of spluttering and hoping chaos could win the match for them.How Italy would love some chaos. It has been all too predictable for them these Six Nations: turn up, relent to the opposition, traipse home. Loss after loss. For every punch of fine attacking intent, for every plunging run from Monty Ioane, their defence has had all the integrity of loose custard. Their points difference in this tournament currently stands at -142. Juan Ignacio Brex gets stuck in at ruck time (Getty Images)What have the coaches said?Gregor Townsend said of Stuart Hogg’s move to ten: “We’re keen to see him play there if he’s going to be, at times, a reserve ten in our squad.“Full-back is his position but given his experience, leadership ability and all-round skillset we do see him as being able to cover other positions and this is an opportunity for him to do that.”Italy head coach Franco Smith said: “We have a big challenge ahead of us. Our work during the week was excellent. We want to win on Saturday, closing the Championship in the best possible way and continuing on the path of becoming more and more competitive.”What are the odds?Scotland are overwhelming favourites, with odds of 1-66 on Bet365. Italy are rated at 16-1 and a draw comes in at 66-1.If you fancy having a flutter, Bet365 have a welcome bonus of up to £100 in Bet Credits.Minimum deposit £5.

BeGambleAware.The talismanic Hamish Watson (Getty Images)Any interesting statistics?Italy have now lost 31 Six Nations matches in a row.Scotland lost six lineouts against Ireland.Italy’s last win in this competition – against Scotland in 2015 – came courtesy a late penalty try.Scotland have a tackle success rate of 92% in the 2021 Six Nations – the best of any side in the competition.Italy have not missed a single penalty kick yet in the 2021 Six Nations – Scotland have missed three.Hamish Watson is yet to miss a tackle in these Six Nations (he has made 44 tackles).Italy currently have a points difference in the Six Nations table of -142. Scotland’s is +1.The last time these two met in the Six Nations at Murrayfield, the attendance was 67,144.What time does it kick off and is it on TV?Scotland vs Italy, Saturday 20 March, Murrayfield.The match kicks off at 2.155pm and will be shown on BBC One in the UK and in Ireland on Virgin Media One. You can listen to coverage on BBC Radio Scotland.Pascal Gaüzère (France) is the match referee, and he will be assisted by Karl Dickson (England) and Ben Whitehouse (Wales), while Alex Ruiz (France) the TMO.What are the line-ups?Scotland: Sean Maitland; Darcy Graham, Huw Jones, Sam Johnson, Duhan van der Merwe; Stuart Hogg (captain), Scott Steele; Rory Sutherland, David Cherry, Zander Fagerson, Sam Skinner, Grant Gilchrist, Jamie Ritchie, Hamish Watson, Matt Fagerson.Replacements: George Turner, Jamie Bhatti, Simon Berghan, Alex Craig, Nick Haining, Ali Price, Jaco van der Walt, Chris Harris.Italy: Edoardo Padovani; Mattia Bellini, Juan Ignacio Brex, Federico Mori, Monty Ioane; Paolo Garbisi, Stephen Varney; Danilo Fischetti, Luca Bigi (captain), Marco Riccioni, Niccolò Cannone, Federico Ruzza, Sebastian Negri, Johan Meyer, Michele Lamaro.Replacements: Gianmarco Lucchesi, Andrea Lovotti, Giosuè Zilocchi, Riccardo Favretto, Maxime Mbanda, Marcello Violi, Carlo Canna, Marco Zanon.

LATEST RUGBY WORLD MAGAZINE SUBSCRIPTION DEALS But it doesn’t have to be like this.Through injuries, falling form, and Townsend’s inherent need to see if the selection grass is greener, Scotland are sporting some jazzy new combinations. Up front that means some practical changes. Against the Irish, Scotland’s lineout functioned like a local council before the bailiffs arrived. They lost six of their own throws.The hope is that new front-liner Dave Cherry will be far less wasteful than last week’s starters as he throws at incoming locks Sam Skinner and Grant Gilchrist. Italy will have seen how Ireland took to the collisions, too.Out the back, though, it’s attacking intent for the Scots. It’s wild to say out loud, but if you count Scott Steele’s time on the wing on his debut against Wales, plus Huw Jones’s time at full-back for Glasgow, and Hogg starting here at ten, it’s a backline of back-three players. The hope is that with front-foot ball, Scotland will sprint through Italian turnstiles.Italy cannot be so charitable. They mustn’t be. They have an horrific run of defeats in this competition (31 and counting) to end. And all the talk of rebuilding and starting again must at least show something for all the obvious endeavour of the players. Having more experience with Edo Padovani at full-back could help. Having their new centre-axis could change the picture again further.Maybe an intercept try, for old time’s sake? A classic chaotic game between these two should always have one of those…Scotland skipper Stuart Hogg will get more touches (Getty Images)What’s the big team news?Gregor Townsend has made seven personnel changes to Scotland’s starting XV for their Six Nations match against Italy.Finn Russell is ruled out following a brain injury against Ireland, so captain Hogg moves to fly-half with Sean Maitland starting at full-back.Darcy Graham starts on the wing while outside centre Huw Jones comes in for Chris Harris and Scott Steele is picked ahead of Ali Price at scrum-half.In the forwards, hooker Dave Cherry gets his first start of the Six Nations, prop Zander Fagerson returns from his lengthy ban and locks Sam Skinner and Grant Gilchrist come in for Scott Cummings and Jonny Gray because of injury.Italy have made four changes. In the backs, Edo Padovani starts at full-back with the green Jacopo Trulla gone, while Federico Mori comes in at 13 for Carlo Canna, to partner the industrious Juan Ignacio Brex.Up front, prop Marco Riccioni returns to the starting XV, replacing Giosuè Zilocchi, and Federico Ruzza starts at lock with David Sisi out.

Local News Previous articleNATIONAL PREMIER SOCCER LEAGUE: Sockers FC returns home to face DentonNext articleLearn About Auto Window Tint Digital AIM Web Support Facebook Pinterest CHIEF’S APPRAISAL: Prepare for a successful appraisal review hearing Twitter By Digital AIM Web Support – February 24, 2021 Under Texas law, appraisal districts are required to notify property owners about changes in their property’s value. These appraisal notices contain important information regarding the property’s description, ownership, market value, applied exemptions, and taxable value. Our office has mailed more than 125,000 real, mineral, and business personal property notices in the last few weeks. The taxable values (market value less any appraisal caps and exemption amounts) will be used by our local taxing entities to set the 2019 tax rates, finalizing tax amounts for properties within their jurisdiction. If you have not received your annual Notice of Appraised Value from the Ector County Appraisal District for each property you own in Ector County, please contact us. But before your property value is certified to the taxing entities, it is your right as a property owner in Texas to participate in the valuation of your property for tax purposes. Our staff appraisers are currently conducting informal appraisal reviews with property owners. The informal process begins with a call or visit to our office. Most questions can be answered and issues resolved in this informal session. You and the appraiser will discuss the characteristics of your property and recent sales of properties comparable to yours. If our appraisal records need to be revised, the appraiser will make the necessary changes. If you have timely filed your protest and we believe our records are accurate and no adjustment is warranted, you will be given an opportunity to present your arguments and evidence to the Appraisal Review Board (ARB). Your ARB hearing works like a less formal court proceeding. The ARB chairperson will guide you through the hearing process by asking for testimony and written evidence from you and from the appraisal district staff. When all evidence and arguments have been presented, the ARB members may ask clarification questions. The chairman will then close the evidence portion of the hearing and the ARB members will weigh the evidence presented and make a ruling. You will have an opportunity at the conclusion of your hearing to rate your ARB experience by completing a survey offered by the Comptroller of Public Accounts. Property owners may appear for their hearing by telephone conference call. You must file a written notice for this type of hearing at least 10 days before the hearing, and you must file a written affidavit with your evidence prior to the hearing. Contact us and ask for the ARB administrator. We can provide you with additional information on procedures for telephone conference call hearings. For a successful hearing, you should provide written evidence that is specific to your property and relevant to the 2019 valuation. If you recently purchased your property for less than the appraisal district’s proposed market value, you should present your closing statement. If your property needs significant repairs, you should provide dated photos of problem areas along with repair estimates. Business personal property values are best supported with the asset details from your recent personal property rendition filing. The Appraisal Review Board cannot ask for evidence to be provided and they can only consider matters presented as evidence at the hearing. The ARB must follow Texas Property Tax Law and the Texas Comptroller guidelines set out in the Model Hearings Procedures and Rules. The ARB cannot develop its own valuation or calculations, create appraisals, or develop theories that are not part of the hearing record. Property owners who have the most success in getting a value adjustment are those who provide property-specific written evidence to support their claim. While ARB members will be sympathetic to a property owner’s testimony regarding the tax estimate, the board has no authority concerning tax amounts. It’s best to keep your testimony focused on the specifics of your protest, such as the market value, equity, or the qualifications of an exemption that has been denied. To prepare for your hearing, visit our website at www.ectorcad.org for information on your property and other properties in your neighborhood. You can also visit our office at 1301 E. 8th Street, or you can call us at 432-332-6834. Please remember the law has established legal deadlines to protest, and the ARB loses jurisdiction to hear your complaint if the protest is not filed in a timely manner.

Sign up for DS News Daily The Best Markets For Residential Property Investors 2 days ago MERSCORP was victorious in two recent appellate court decisions: one in the Tenth Circuit Court of Appeals in a Wyoming bankruptcy court that rejected the “split the note” theory and one in the Appellate Division of the Fourth Judicial Department in New York that rules a MERS mortgage was valid.In the Wyoming case, Barney v. Bank of America, a bankruptcy trustee argued that a mortgage once assigned to MERS and subsequently assigned to BAC Home Loans was unenforceable because neither MERS nor BAC Home Loans held the note at the time each entity was the mortgagee identified in the local land records, according to MERS.The Tenth Circuit Court cited a ruling in a previous case which held that “The Trustee has pointed to no Wyoming authority that prohibits the loan originator from agreeing to have someone other than the beneficial owner of the debt hold the mortgage and enforce the debt as its agent. We note that Wyoming has a statute that contemplates conveying real estate to a mortgagee in a representative capacity, which suggests that Wyoming allows original parties to a note and mortgage to name someone other than the noteholder as the mortgagee.”“We are pleased that the U.S. Court of Appeals for the Tenth District affirmed the Wyoming bankruptcy court’s order,” said MERSCORP Holdings Vice President for Corporate Communications Janis Smith. “This holding is consistent with prior rulings and is another example of unsuccessful reliance on the ‘split the note’ theory.”The New York Appellate Court overturned a previous decision by a trial court which had declared a MERS mortgage invalid. In the case of J.P. Morgan Chase Bank v. Kobee, a trial court in New York originally denied Chase’s motion for summary judgment to its foreclosure complaint, ruling that the bank lacked standing to foreclose as the assignee of a mortgage for which MERS was the original mortgagee.Citing an earlier case, the appellate court ruled that the trial court erred in declaring the mortgage invalid and granted the bank’s summary judgment in its foreclosure action.“We are pleased that the Appellate Court re-affirmed the validity of a MERS mortgage under New York law,” Smith said. “The appellate courts in New York routinely recognize MERS’ role as a valid mortgagee as a nominee for the lender, and also recognize that MERS has legal authority to act on behalf of the lender.” Governmental Measures Target Expanded Access to Affordable Housing 2 days ago in Daily Dose, Featured, News Home / Daily Dose / MERSCORP is Victorious in Appellate Courts Demand Propels Home Prices Upward 2 days ago Share Save MERSCORP Mortgage Electronic Registry System 2016-06-27 Brian Honea June 27, 2016 1,102 Views Previous: Citi Provides Consumers More Relief, Monitor Says Next: Fewer Distressed Homes For Sale in Hardest Hit Areas MERSCORP is Victorious in Appellate Courts Data Provider Black Knight to Acquire Top of Mind 2 days ago Print This Post Subscribe The Week Ahead: Nearing the Forbearance Exit 2 days ago Tagged with: MERSCORP Mortgage Electronic Registry System Servicers Navigate the Post-Pandemic World 2 days ago About Author: Brian Honea The Best Markets For Residential Property Investors 2 days ago Demand Propels Home Prices Upward 2 days ago Governmental Measures Target Expanded Access to Affordable Housing 2 days ago Related Articles

The coalition says HUD-approved housing counseling agencies and legal assistance collectively help homeowners avoid foreclosure.It writes: “HUD-approved housing counseling agencies play a critical role in ensuring homeowners get the individualized help and relief they need to stay in their homes, including through effectivecommunication with their servicer and addressing credit and financial challenges as a result ofthe pandemic.What’s more, the Homeowner Assistance Fund, modeled after the Obama-era Hardest Hit Fund, recently was reintroduced by Sens. Sherrod Brown (D-Ohio) and Jack Reed (D-RI).According to the letter, the fund “would enable state housing finance agencies to help homeowners with COVID-19 hardships, including providing direct assistance with mortgage payments, helping people get into affordable loan modifications, and assisting with utility payments, property tax and insurance payments, homeowner association dues and other support to prevent the loss of home equity, mortgage delinquency, default, foreclosure, or loss of utility services.”Read the “letter to the Hill” in full at NHC.org.

The division bench of Justices M Sathyanarayanan and M Nirmal Kumar posted the matter for further hearing to May 18. The petitioner, S. Stalinraja, an advocate, has averred that the World Health Organisation instructed the best way to prevent the disease is protect ourselves with mask and by washing our hands or using alcohol based sanitisers rub frequently. Accordingly, the government of India instructed all members of public to compulsorily wear masks to prevent the disease , and use sanitiser to disinfect the hands. “In India almost 23% of the people are below the poverty line and they are not in a position to afford essential goods such as masks and sanitisers. In these critical times, when our country is fighting against the coronavirus outbreak, the Hospitals, Ambulance, Nursing and support staff desperately require sanitisers and masks besides medical practitioners and the public at large, as a major preventive measure to keep away the highly infectious virus”, he has submitted. He has pointed out that at present the Government of India is collecting 18 % GST on sanitisers and 5% on mask. “We understand that certain ingredients are taxable, still in these difficult times or at least for next few month if GST is not levied on sanitisers and mask it would be a big relief for the people in our country”, he has prayed against this backdrop. He has iterated that he has earlier sent a representation via email to the respondents in this behalf but received no response. “The respondents have failed to consider that it is their duty to protect each and every citizen of this country by all possible legal ways and also on goodwill under Article 21 of the Constitution of India. The non-action of the respondents inspite of the representation would amount to dereliction of duty and also would amount to colourable exercise of power without any concern for the citizens of this country”, he has argued.
