An estimated 13 million new rental households are expected to arrive by 2030. “Housing stock isn’t projected to keep up with this demand, meaning there’s great potential for investors who own income properties,” Forbes said.Also contributing to the growth of single-family investments is that many operations difficulties have been removed. The report added that many management services accommodate the needs of larger investors, with property managers providing services at scale. “No longer do they max out at 20 or 30 properties. Instead, many have the resources to oversee hundreds, if not thousands, of properties,” the report said. “This frees up investors to purchase properties that are out of state, and it allows them to invest in more units than they could manage if they were overseeing everything on their own.Increase your knowledge of investment from industry experts at the Single-Family Rental and Investment Roundtable on September 23, during the Five Star Conference and Expo. Leading the roundtable will be CEO of RCN Capital Jeffrey Tesch, and industry insiders will discuss strategies for increasing values of investment, lending tools, the mechanics of investing, improving your ROI, and technological innovations. Subject-matter experts from companies such as Bayview Loan Servicing, CoreVest Finance, LendingHome, and more will speak on the evolving world of investment.  The Week Ahead: Nearing the Forbearance Exit 2 days ago Demand Propels Home Prices Upward 2 days ago The Best Markets For Residential Property Investors 2 days ago Servicers Navigate the Post-Pandemic World 2 days ago Data Provider Black Knight to Acquire Top of Mind 2 days ago Tagged with: single family investment in Daily Dose, Featured, Investment, News Subscribelast_img read more

Taken for Granted: The Effect of Traumatic Brain Injury on Sense of Identity and Family Relationships

first_imgmilitraryfamilimiliBy: David Lee Sexton, Jr.Pixabay [Brain Biology by Geralt , CC0]Not Just a Problem on the Football FieldAccording to Knock (2017), Traumatic Brain Injury (TBI) refers to an injury in which something impacts an individual’s head, which many may not inherently recognize as what is commonly known as a concussion. The difference in nomenclature between these two synonymous words may lead some to perceive a concussion as something far less serious than a TBI. However, Knock clarifies that a concussion is a TBI, and there are varying grades of TBI ranging from Grade One to Grade Three. Furthermore, 80% of TBI are considered Grade One, or mild, yet even a mild TBI can result in chronic problems. Interestingly, Knock points out that TBIs can manifest vastly different symptoms depending on the part of the brain which sustains the brunt of the impact.This phenomenon has been brought to public attention recently through the film, Concussion, which examines the discovery of the relationship between TBI and mental health problems in professional football players. However, athletes are not the only ones prone to a higher risk of sustaining TBI, as combat veterans are also at higher risk due to injuries, such as blast injuries that affect the brain through tearing of the axons at a microscopic level (Knock, 2017). These types of injuries are even more sinister, as they are often not detectable through common brain scanning measures, such as MRI (Knock, 2017).Loss of IdentityIn a brief anecdote, Knock (2017) demonstrates the insidiousness of TBI by relaying the story of one veteran’s struggle to accomplish something many of us take for granted: packing a lunch. After being caught in an IED, she suffered damage to her parietal lobe. This resulted in disturbances with her visual and spatial reasoning that made her unable to even select the right size container to hold a packed lunch. With the added struggle of completing tasks that were once effortless, it can be difficult to maintain a sense of self, which leaves one vulnerable to further struggles with chronic depression as new limitations are being discovered.Impact on FamiliesSome of the most profound limitations TBI can impose on an individual will be family-related. Depending on severity, TBI can change familial roles so drastically that one individual’s spouse may become a caregiver in an instant (Knock, 2017). In this case, feelings of loss and frustration will likely affect both individuals. Knock (2017) provides an example of how drastically family dynamic can change through the act of caring for children. After suffering a TBI, a parent may no longer be able to safely watch over his or her children, due to potential memory or attention problems. This not only represents an enormous loss for the parent suffering the TBI but may cause additional strain for his or her partner due to the new responsibility of caring for both children and spouse. Again, this brings to light the impact TBI can have on things that people often take for granted, and demonstrates the influence something like a “bump on the head” can have on a person’s life and well-being.Want to Learn More?To learn more about Traumatic Brain Injury and its effects on families, please take some time to watch the MFLN Family Development Team’s free, archived webinar presented by Heidi Knock, Psy.D., Staff Psychologist at Richard L.

UCSD study finds link between Roundup Herbicide and liver disease

The study found that glyphosate residue was higher in the urine of subjects with liver disease regardless of possible underlying factors such as age, body mass index or race.Company representatives could not be immediately reached for comment on the results of the study, which was published in the journal Clinical Gastroenterology and Hepatology.The UCSD researchers surveyed 93 patients in total, 41 percent of whom were men and 42 percent were white. An additional 35 percent of subjects were Hispanic or Latino.“There have been a handful of studies, all of which we cited in our paper, where animals either were or weren’t fed Roundup or glyphosate directly, and they all point to the same thing: the development of liver pathology,” said UCSD professor and study leader Paul Mills. “So I naturally thought: `Well, could it be exposure to this same herbicide that is driving liver disease in the U.S.?”’Roundup, manufactured by Monsanto, a subsidiary of the German chemical company Bayer AG, has rapidly increased in use since the mid-1990s. During that same period, nonalcoholic fatty liver disease cases in the U.S. have also risen significantly, according to the UCSD researchers.Glyphosate-based herbicides account for roughly half of Monsanto’s annual revenue, and most people are exposed to the chemical by eating non- organic grains like wheat and oats. Glyphosate is currently the most widely used herbicide in the country, according to UCSD.On Monday, a jury in Alameda County awarded more than $2 billion to a San Francisco Bay Area couple who claimed Roundup caused them to contract non- Hodgkin’s lymphoma.The verdict was the third Roundup-related legal battle Monsanto has lost in California since mid-2018. The company said it plans to appeal the decision, as it has the other two, and maintains that Roundup does not cause cancer or other illnesses.“Bayer is disappointed with the jury’s decision and will appeal the verdict in this case, which conflicts directly with the U.S. Environmental Protection Agency’s interim registration review decision released just last month, the consensus among leading health regulators worldwide that glyphosate- based products can be used safely and that glyphosate is not carcinogenic and the 40 years of extensive scientific research on which their favorable conclusions are based,” the company said in a statement.More than 13,000 plaintiffs across the country currently have lawsuits pending against Monsanto.Mills and the UCSD research team plan to launch further studies into glyphosate’s affect on humans. One of those studies includes putting a group of subjects on a strict diet of organic food to track how herbicide-free food may affect the development of liver disease. The researchers also intend to monitor how other herbicides affect human health.“There are so many synthetic chemicals we are regularly exposed to,” Mills said. “We measured just one.”More Info: https://bit.ly/2fofFKg Categories: California News, Health, Healthy Living, Local San Diego News, National & International News, Trending FacebookTwitter KUSI Newsroom, last_img
