In Seattle, home values grew at a pace of 12.4 percent in December 2017 and slowed to a rate of 5.0 percent in December 2018.On the other hand, home values in Atlanta accelerated from 8.1 percent in December 2017 to 13.2 percent in December 2018.Seven markets experienced double-digit rent growth in December with Atlanta leading the pack. Atlanta was followed by Las Vegas, Nevada; Indianapolis, Indiana; Dallas, Texas; Charlotte, North Carolina; Tampa, Florida; and Kansas City, Missouri.Outliers aside, national home value appreciation “seems stabilized at an arguably aggressive pace,” according to Skylar Olsen, Director of Economic Research and Outreach at Zillow.Nationally, home values rose 7.6 percent over the year in December, similar to the previous year’s 7.4 percent growth. The national median home value as of December was $223,900.Olsen clarified, “The exceptions to the rule are the metros that saw the fastest appreciation over the past few years, where home values far outpaced incomes.”In total, home value appreciation slowed down in 19 of the 35 largest markets in December, according to Zillow.Rents also increased in December, rising at their fastest rate since June. The national median rent in December was $1,460, up 1.4 percent from a year ago.The largest increase in rents took place in Orlando, Florida, where rents rose 6.4 percent over the year. Riverside, California, followed with a 5.3 percent increase in rents.While overall home prices continued their upward trajectory, housing inventory backpedaled. After three months of growth, inventory retracted 0.4 percent on an annual basis in December, which according to Olsen is an indication to buyers “that the pendulum hasn’t fully swing in their favor for this year’s home shopping season.”Despite the national contraction, Zillow noted that a few markets “that were starved for homes for sale are seeing big gains, led by San Jose (up 47.6 percent), Seattle (up 32.9 percent) and San Diego (up 32.2 percent).” The Best Markets For Residential Property Investors 2 days agocenter_img Data Provider Black Knight to Acquire Top of Mind 2 days ago Servicers Navigate the Post-Pandemic World 2 days ago The Week Ahead: Nearing the Forbearance Exit 2 days ago Share Save Governmental Measures Target Expanded Access to Affordable Housing 2 days ago Sign up for DS News Daily in Daily Dose, Featured, Market Studies, News Servicers Navigate the Post-Pandemic World 2 days ago Governmental Measures Target Expanded Access to Affordable Housing 2 days ago Tagged with: Home Values Housing Inventory Housing Markets Zillow Real Estate Market Report Demand Propels Home Prices Upward 2 days ago Subscribelast_img read more

In new book with Kobe Bryant, Andy Bernstein captures the essence of the Mamba

first_img How athletes protesting the national anthem has evolved over 17 years Lakers, Clippers schedules set for first round of NBA playoffs Lakers practice early hoping to answer all questions Newsroom GuidelinesNews TipsContact UsReport an Error Much of this analysis was news to Bernstein, who didn’t know at the time that Bryant was studying his work.Related Articles LOS ANGELES — In the days before you could share photos with a few taps on your phone, Andy Bernstein needed to get a photo to Kobe Bryant.He knew it was significant as soon as he looked at the print: an image taken from the catwalk at the top of the arena of Bryant, then a rising superstar, leaping on a breakaway dunk with his arm outstreched and his feet curled up behind him against the backdrop of a golden Lakers court at the Great Western Forum.Bernstein made a second print, 30 by 50 inches as he remembers it, barely angled it into his car and drove it to Pacific Palisades, where Bryant, still a precocious teenager, was living with his parents.“It was a process,” he said. “But I thought it would mean a lot to him.”center_img Trail Blazers, Grizzlies advance to NBA play-in game; Suns, Spurs see playoff dreams dashed AD Quality Auto 360p 720p 1080p Top articles1/5READ MOREUCLA alum Kenny Clark signs four-year contract extension with PackersMaybe it meant more than he knew – Bernstein went on to cover the entirety of Bryant’s 20-year career with the Lakers and capture many more memorable shots. His collection now provides half of the creative fuel behind “Mamba Mentality: How I Play,” a book written by Bryant and fleshed out by Bernstein’s photographs.Bernstein has previously done a book with Phil Jackson, “Journey to the Ring,” about the 2009-2010 season. But the scope of his project with Bryant sent Bernstein scouring both digital records and old files to find telling photos of the Black Mamba’s career.He watched Bryant start from a dynamic teenage dunker to one of the most polished jump shooters to ever play the game. In the process, Bernstein learned to anticipate Bryant better than any defender could – using equipment that shoots a photo every few seconds instead of the rapid-fire shots of the digital era, Bernstein had to gain an intuition for when Bryant would spin, juke, step back or cross over.“Of course you get burned now and then,” he laughs, “but I got to know his game pretty well over the years.”There are parts of the book that reflect how deeply Bryant scrutinized the photos of Bernstein, who was honored earlier this year for his career by the Basketball Hall of Fame. In one sequence, Bryant analyzes his posture in a picture Bernstein shot of him guarding Michael Jordan, then writes: “Thankfully, I actually saw this photo back in 1998. After studying it, I corrected my posture and balance.” “I knew that he had some of my photos of other greats that he idolized,” said Bernstein, who also shot the “Showtime” Lakers and the 1992 Dream Team among other high-profile subjects. “I didn’t know he used them as a learning tool to break down his own game.”Bryant’s appearance at Staples Center on Thursday night was in part to promote the book. Bernstein, as he always is at Lakers home games, was at work.“I knew Kobe was always dedicated and obsessed with his craft, and I think we had a meeting of the minds in that way,” Bernstein said. “He has this saying, ‘If you’re not obsessed with what you do, we don’t speak the same language.’ I think that’s how we came to respect each other.” Trail Blazers beat Grizzlies in play-in, earn first-round series with the Lakers last_img read more

Google Brings Drug Info to Search Results

The world is full of people – all of them doctors in their own mind – and the Internet is a wonderful representation of all their opinions. While we love this fact when it comes to political discourse and daily musings, health and medicine are a different game, which is why we’re sure to appreciate Google’s latest offering – medication listings in search results. mike melanson As Greg Sterling writes, Google first “began integrating structured health-related content at the top of search results” last year as a way to provide authoritative and reliable answers to health-related searches. That same functionality is expanding today to searches for both name brand and generic medications, with the result summarly linking to information as provided by the National Institutes of Health.The summary, which is offered at the top of the search results, offers a quick summary of the drug along with quick links to commonly-sought information such as side effects, precautions, dietary instructions and how to take it. According to Sterling, the feature is currently only available in the U.S. and Google declined to say whether or not it would expand to other countries. last_img read more
