UP officials aim to list Azam Khan as land mafia

first_imgNew Delhi: Slapped with over two dozen cases, Samajwadi Party (SP) stalwart and MP, Azam Khan seems to be facing the most difficult time of his political career. Criminal cases have been registered against him in the recent past but his woes have not ended with that. The district administration of Rampur, the native town of the SP leader, is now contemplating listing Azam Khan as land mafia on the state government’s “Anti-Bhoo Mafia”(anti-land mafia) portal. The portal was established by Chief Minister Yogi Adityanath, to identify land mafia and register complaints of people relating to land grabbing, soon after assuming power in Uttar Pradesh in 2017.

According to the police, the newly-elected member of Lok Sabha, Azam Khan faces more than 30 cases in which majority of cases relate to grabbing of either government land or land belonging to poor farmers. The Superintendent of Police, Rampur, Ajay Pal Sharma said that keeping in mind the long history of his involvement in land grabbing cases, Azam Khan’s name would be recommended to be listed on the land mafia portal. “The District Magistrate and myself would be reviewing reports (FIRs/cases) of various police stations in the district which relate to land grabbed by Azam Khan or his aides. Subsequently, his name would be recommended to be listed on the land mafia portal of the government,” Ajay Pal Sharma, an IPS officer of the Uttar Pradesh Police told IANS. Also Read – Encounter under way in Pulwama, militant killed Earlier on Friday, a case was registered against Azam Khan on the basis of an FIR filed by the Revenue Department at Azim Nagar Police Station in Rampur. The FIR reveals that Azam Khan and his close aide, a former police officer called Aalehasan Khan, allegedly ‘grabbed land’ from 26 farmers and utilised it in the construction of Mohammed Ali Jauhar University, a mega multi-crore project of the SP leader. Subsequent to the FIR of the Revenue Department, 26 farmers of Rampur, who were allegedly tortured to sign a forged sale deed, would now file separate FIRs. The complaint of the State Revenue Department also says that Azam Khan, who misused his position (as Cabinet Minister of Uttar Pradesh, 2012-2017) in grabbing land of poor farmers, also illegally occupied another huge chunk of land measuring 5,000 hectrares. “This land comes under the riverside (of Kosi river) and cannot be acquired. However, revenue records were forged and subsequently this land, worth over several hundred crores, was illegally occupied by Jauhar Ali University,” said a Revenue Officer. According to this Officer, the forged documents aimed at fraudulently enabling occupation of the riverbed, now seem to provide strong evidence against Azam Khan, who appears to be in deep waters. Police sources said that several complaints relating to other cases of land grabbing by Azam Khan or his aides have been received at the office of the Superintendent of Police, Rampur. Meanwhile, supporters of Azam Khan said that their leader had been the sole voice of opposition in the district and had been talking tough against the Modi government in Parliament. “The action against him (Azam Khan) is not justified. He did not grab any land for his personal use,” said an SP office-bearer in Lucknow.last_img read more

Tunisias PMdesignate holds talks on forming new govt

first_imgTUNIS – Tunisia’s designated prime minister Mehdi Jomaa said Wednesday he is holding consultations on forming a new government of independents aimed at ending the months-old political crisis plaguing the country.“As part of the consultations, I met the parliamentary speaker Mustapha Ben Jaafar. The consultations are ongoing and we have not reached the stage of forming a government,” Jomaa told reporters.Speaking after meeting Ben Jaafar at the National Assembly, Tunisia’s newly nominated premier said his cabinet would be formed of ministers who were politically “independent” and “competent,” without elaborating. They were Jomaa’s first comments since the former industry minister was chosen by Tunisia’s political parties on Saturday to head a caretaker government of technocrats, after months of protracted negotiations.Talks on the timetable and conditions for forming the new administration to replace outgoing Islamist premier Ali Larayedh’s cabinet are to formally begin on Friday, according to the UGTT trade union, which has been mediating an end to the political deadlock.Jomaa is a 51-year-old engineer with no stated political affiliation and no involvement in politics under the regime of former dictator Zine El Abidine Ben Ali.His future government is tasked with organising fresh elections in 2014 and restoring stability to Tunisia, which was plunged into crisis with the murder of opposition MP Mohammed Brahmi in July by suspected Islamist militants.Larayedh’s ruling Ennahda party, which has been sharply criticised for failing to rein in Tunisia’s jihadists since being elected in the wake of Ben Ali’s overthrow, agreed in October to step down as part of a political roadmap brokered by mediators.last_img read more

US hit by freezing winter storm 16 deaths

first_imgNew York- The northeastern US has been hit by a major winter storm with heavy snowfall and extreme cold killing 16 people since the beginning.  Leading to ‘the coldest winter of the last 20 years’, the powerful storm forced thousands of flights to be cancelled; destroyed the road and railway transport; and damaged power lines. Officials warn people to avoid going out and stay indoors because of the frigid temperatures dropping as low as 30 degrees below zero Celsius. In New York and Boston, warming centers were set up for the homeless people while police reminded the people living on the streets to call the emergency line 911. Meanwhile, schools were cancelled in Minnesota on Monday statewide, the first such closing in 17 years. States facing the coldest winter of the last 20 years since Wednesday include Connecticut, Delaware, Illinois, Indiana, Kentucky, Maine, Maryland, Massachusetts, Michigan, Minnesota, New  Hampshire, New Jersey, New York, North Carolina, Ohio, Pennsylvania, Rhode Island, Vermont, West Virginia and Wisconsin.last_img read more

Ban support for national efforts vital as UN departs Chad Central African

The mission, known as MINURCAT, was set up by the Security Council in 2007 to help protect civilians and facilitate humanitarian aid to thousands of people uprooted due to insecurity in the two countries and neighbouring Sudan. In May the Council decided to end the mission by 31 December, after the Chadian Government requested the move and said it would assume full responsibility for protecting civilians on its territory.The final phase of the mission’s drawdown began on 15 October, and its security tasks in Chad will be transferred by the end of this month to the UN-trained Détachement intégré de sécurité (DIS). In his latest report on MINURCAT, Mr. Ban notes that after only three years since its inception, the DIS force remains in a formative stage. “It has succeeded in demonstrating that it can make a difference to the security of the vulnerable populations in the east. This hard-won progress relied on considerable support from the international community,” he writes. He says the future development of DIS will depend on sustained attention, including in the areas of training, oversight and resources. Noting that the Government is seeking sustained international donor support for these security units next year, he stressed that DIS must not be allowed to fail because of lack of funding. Mr. Ban points out that the protection of civilians in eastern Chad consists of more than assuring the physical security of refugees, the displaced and humanitarian workers and the provision of logistical support and hard-wall structures for DIS. “Intercommunity dialogue, the enhancement of local governance structures, including justice and prisons, respect for human rights and the creation of socio-economic incentives for the safe and voluntary return of the displaced are mutually interdependent requirements for the protection of civilians, and depend ultimately on the host Government,” he states. “While MINURCAT is working with potential partners to ensure the continuation of these tasks, the Government’s commitment to seeing them to fruition will be critical.”Meanwhile, the security situation in north-eastern CAR continues to suffer from inter-ethnic conflict, banditry and cross-border criminality, particularly in the Vakaga and Haute-Kotto regions. In anticipation of MINURCAT’s withdrawal, the Government has continued to express concern about the security situation in that part of the country, notes the Secretary-General. It has also repeatedly stated its preference for the receipt of direct bilateral support to build up the capacity of its security forces. “I urge Member States to respond favourably to the request of the Government of the Central African Republic for assistance to ensure that there is no gap between the departure of MINURCAT and the further deployment of trained and equipped national forces to the Vakaga region,” Mr. Ban says. 28 October 2010As the United Nations mission in Chad and Central African Republic (CAR) prepares to wrap up, Secretary-General Ban Ki-moon has stressed the need to support both countries as they seek to tackle their respective security and humanitarian challenges on their own. read more

Canadian railways outperform US rivals with higher freight volumes

MONTREAL — Canada’s two large railways outperformed their U.S. rivals in the fourth quarter although rail companies on both sides of the border were helped last year by a surge in traffic for petroleum products.Walter Spracklin of RBC Capital Markets said Canadian railway freight volumes were up 2.6% overall in the final quarter of 2012 on strong intermodal, agricultural products and chemicals carloads.U.S. railways suffered a 1.8% volume decrease, largely as a result of a decline in coal and grain shipments.While the volume trends were in line with guidance provided by the railways in the third quarter, Mr. Spracklin is raising his earnings forecast for Montreal-based Canadian National Railway Co. by 4% to $1.45 per share on superior volume trends and to $5.65 per share for the year.Analysts’ consensus forecast is $1.40 per share for the quarter and $5.59 for the year.CN, the larger of Canada’s two major railways, had the highest volume growth of all Class 1 railways in the quarter, rising 3.4%, or 8.4% on an RTM (revenue per ton) basis. Canadian Pacific Railway Ltd. saw volumes increase 1.1%.CN larger size weighted the overall percentage volume increase of Canada’s railways to 2.6 %.Among other things, CN’s improvement was fuelled by new intermodal contracts, robust traffic at Canadian West Coast ports and a 15.3% growth in agricultural products due to a strong Canadian crop, as well as a less robust quarter for comparison last year.“We believe CN will target high single-digit earnings growth in 2013, in line with our current forecast,” Mr. Spracklin added in a report, noting that guidance will be announced with fourth-quarter and year-end results on Jan. 22.The railway has forecast that 2012 adjusted diluted earnings by share would grow by up to 15% over the $4.84 earned in 2011.Mr. Spracklin also boosted his target price for CN by $1 to $93 per share on the expectation that it will retain volume in fiscal 2014 that he had expected to be recouped by CP. read more

Top UN human rights official decries killing of Tunisian activist

“I was extremely saddened to hear the shocking news of Mr. Belaid’s murder,” High Commissioner for Human Rights Navi Pillay said in a news release.“He was a prominent defender of human rights and democratic values, and a firm opponent of political violence, which just yesterday he publicly condemned as ‘a blow against the democratic process in the country’.”Mr. Belaid was the Secretary General of the Democratic Patriots Movement and one of the leaders of the Popular Front in Tunisia. He was shot Wednesday morning while leaving his home in the capital, Tunis. According to media reports, the killing sparked protests around the country, with police firing tear gas to disperse angry crowds. Tunisian President Moncef Marzouki has condemned the killing and is cutting short an overseas visit.In her statement, Ms. Pillay warned that the assassination comes in an “environment of increasing political violence,” which includes attacks on political parties’ premises and gatherings, and other political killings. She called on the authorities to take serious measures to investigate Mr. Belaid’s killing and other apparently politically-motivated crimes, as well as to provide better protection to people who, like Mr. Belaid, have received threats and are clearly at risk.It was the people of Tunisia that inspired the region in 2011 when they stood up to demand democracy and freedom, leading to the removal of the long-standing regime of Zine El Abidine Ben Ali. Their actions sparked a wave of popular uprisings across North Africa and the Middle East, known as the Arab Spring, which also led to the toppling of regimes in Egypt, Libya and Yemen.“I strongly condemn such acts, which – as Mr. Belaid himself said so clearly – threatens to seriously undermine the democratic transition in post-revolution Tunisia,” Ms. Pillay said. “I call on all actors in government and civil society to unite strongly behind Mr. Belaid’s campaign against political violence. That would, at least, provide him with a fitting memorial for his invaluable work as a human rights defender and opponent of violence.” read more

Hate speech exacerbating societal racial tensions with deadly consequences around the world

“We are alarmed by the recent increase in hateful messages and incitement to discrimination and hatred against migrants, minority groups and various ethnic groups, as well as the defenders of their rights, in numerous countries”, the letter read. The experts maintain that hate speech “has become mainstream in political systems worldwide and threatens democratic values, social stability and peace”, saying that it coarsens public discourse and weakens “the social fabric” of countries.Le discours haineux cible surtout les minorités partout au monde.Around the world, hate speech usually targets minorities.#minorities #HumanRights #HateSpeech https://t.co/LitIknW0Vg— Fernand de Varennes (@fernanddev) September 23, 2019 They note that through international human rights law and principles, States have committed to international human rights standards that guarantee “equality and non-discrimination rights”, saying that States are required to take “strong action against racist and xenophobic speech”.“We are gravely concerned that leaders, senior government officials, politicians and other prominent figures spread fear among the public against migrants or those seen as ‘the others’, for their own political gain”, the 23 stressed, pointing to the demonization of entire groups of people as “dangerous or inferior”  and having led to “catastrophic tragedies in the past”. Observing that public figures globally are attempting “to stoke ethnic tensions and violence by spreading hate speech targeting the vulnerable” the experts maintained that “such rhetoric aims to dehumanize minority groups and other targeted people, and, in the case of migrants, fosters discriminatory discourse about who ‘deserves’ to be part of a community”. A call to stop hatredFurthermore, limiting the human rights of lesbian, gay, bisexual, and transgender (LGBT) people limit progress towards the eradication of violence and discrimination against them. Underscoring the need to stop it, they flagged a correlation between exposure to hate speech and the number of hate crimes committed.  To curb xenophobic attacks on migrants and prevent incitement against all marginalized groups, the UN experts called on public officials, politicians and media “to assume their collective responsibility to promote societies that are tolerant and inclusive” and to redouble their efforts in holding the culpable accountable.“We believe that these efforts will help make countries safer and foster the inclusive and peaceful societies that we would all like and deserve to live in”, they concluded.Click here for a full list of signatories. read more

Serena Calls Williams Brothers Comment Sexist and Racist

Serena Williams called comments by Russian Tennis Federation President Shamil Tarpischev “sexist and racist” when he referred to the No. 1 women’s player in the world and her older sister Venus as “brothers.”Williams was aghast when she learned Tarpischev, on a Russian talk show with former Olympic singles champion Elena Dementieva, interjected on a question about playing against the Williams sisters to say, “The Williams brothers … It’s scary when you really look at them.”The Women’s Tennis Association is seeking to have Tarpischev suspended for a year. He was fined $25,000.“I think the WTA did a great job of taking [the] initiative and taking immediate action to his comments,” Williams said. “I thought they were very insensitive and extremely sexist as well as racist at the same time. I thought they were in a way bullying.”Asked whether he regretted his comments, Tarpischev told The Associated Press on Saturday at the Kremlin Cup that the program on which he spoke was “a humorous show.” When asked about his ban, Tarpischev said: “I can’t comment. I don’t understand it.”In a statement released later by the Russian Tennis Federation, Tarpischev denied any “malicious intent” and said his quotes had been taken out of context.Tarpischev has been chairman of the Kremlin Cup, Russia’s only WTA event, for all of its 18 years as a women’s tour event, and is also a member of the International Olympic Committee. During the 1990s, he was the personal tennis coach to Russian president Boris Yeltsin and served as his adviser on sports matters.Russian tennis player Maria Sharapova, also in Singapore for the WTA Finals, said of Tarpischev’s comments:  “I think they were very disrespectful and uncalled for, and I’m glad that many people have stood up, including the WTA. It was very inappropriate, especially in his position and all the responsibilities that he has not just in sport, but being part of the Olympic committee.” read more

Tangled Geek Easter Eggs

first_imgOkay, am I crazy? Because, let me tell you this: my daughter is almost five. She sang herself to sleep with a song from the movie tonight. I’m probably going to be watching Disney’s Tangled many, many more times. You could argue that “Chuck”‘s Zachary Levi is a bit of a geek icon. But Nathan Fillion is a much bigger geek icon. And the main character Levi so ably voices, Flynn Rider, is totally patterned after Nathan Fillion. I mean, come on – “the smolder?” Fillion gave his blessing to the film with a wink on his Twitter feed. One character is introduced as a collector of tiny porcelain unicorns. Later, at a moment of crisis, another character sees a porcelain unicorn, which signals that the unicorn-collector is watching him. You just can’t do that in film today without it being a nod to how Gaff is watching Deckard in Blade Runner, leaving behind an origami unicorn as a sign of his presence (as well as potentially 73 other things, because that movie is deep). Right? Right? Okay. So you have a quasi-Nathan Fillion. And you have a talking, somewhat superpowered horse. Do you see where I’m going here? At one point Flynn Rider says to the horse, “You … are a bad horse!” And everyone who saw Dr. Horrible’s Sing-Along Blog said, “The thoroughbred of sin!” Tangled, the new Disney Rapunzel movie, is pretty much the last place I expected to see a “Blade Runner” reference. But even beyond the spectacular animation and charming characters, there’s the occasional wink to geekdom in Disney’s new princess feature.My theory: Pixar now basically runs Disney. And Pixar is a bunch of super-smart geeks. The easter eggs in Tangled aren’t the heavy-handed brickbats you see in second-rate animated movies. They’re more on the level of the shout-outs to “Firefly” in the TV show “Castle” – funny if you see ’em, not bothersome if you don’t.Or, I could be crazy. Tell me if I’m crazy.Beware, very minor spoilers ahead – but wait a minute – are spoiler warnings even relevant for a Disney princess movie? Really now, people.last_img read more

Visa price hike to impact Greek community

first_img Facebook Twitter: @NeosKosmos Instagram The cost of bringing a spouse or prospective partner to Australia is set to increase dramatically, as the Abbott government looks to the price of visas to help the cash-strapped Australian economy.As part of its emergency repair job on the budget deficit, the government has announced it will increase visa application charges for partner visas by 50 per cent.The price rise will come into effect from January 1 and was announced in the mid-year budget review on Monday. The price hike is expected to raise $373.6 million in revenue over four years.Provisional and prospective marriage visas, currently costing $3085 will increase to $4627, with temporary and permanent partner visas – currently priced at $4575 increasing to $6865.Registered migration agent Penny Dimopoulos told Neos Kosmos that the increase was likely to have a significant impact on the Greek Australian community.“In terms of applicants from Greece who are returning to Australia with their partners and children, the increase in costs may be difficult to bear, particularly if applicants have been unemployed due to the crisis,” she said.“People who are suffering from economic hardship may need to delay or reconsider applying for a partner visa.”Ms Dimopoulos said that the Immigration Department has confirmed some secondary applicant charges would also be increasing by 50 per cent.“This means that if a primary applicant and a secondary applicant aged over 18 (for example a uni student child) are included in an onshore partner visa application after January 1, the fee is likely to be in excess of $10,000.”last_img read more

Justin Bieber caught in lie over FaceTime screenshot posted to Instagram

first_img Share your voice Music Online Contrary to what Bieber claims, either Braun (or potentially West) must have taken the screenshot and sent it to Bieber to post on Instagram. Or Braun took it and posted it to Bieber’s account himself (it’s not unusual for celebrities’ managers to have access to their clients’ social media accounts). Representatives for Scooter Braun Projects, which represents Bieber, didn’t respond to request for comment to confirm how the screenshot taken from Braun’s end of the call ended up on Bieber’s Instagram account.Not only did Bieber claim that he took and posted the screenshot himself with the caption, but he said that Braun advised against him doing so. In the same breath he said they didn’t even discuss Taylor Swift on the call. “He didn’t have anything to do with it and it wasn’t even part of the conversation in all actuality he was the person who told me not to joke like that,” Bieber said.Fans on Twitter are speculating that Bieber may be trying to cover for his manager — the irony being that if he hadn’t spoken up, the question of who captured the screenshot and Braun’s specific role in the incident might not have even been raised. Tags Bieber, his manager Scooter Braun, Kanye West and one unidentified man are accused of bullying Taylor Swift. Tumblr Justin Bieber seems to have forgotten how FaceTime works. The popstar inserted himself into a conflict between his manager Scooter Braun and Grammy-winning singer-songwriter Taylor Swift this week, and in doing so opened himself up to accusations of lying.In an Instagram comment, he claimed to be responsible for capturing a screenshot of a FaceTime call featuring himself, Braun and Kanye West, which he then posted online with a caption poking fun at Swift. But unfortunately for Bieber, there was a major discrepancy in his version of the story — as anyone who has used FaceTime could tell, he can’t have captured the screenshot from his end of the call.The reason it matters is that Bieber appears to be lying to protect the reputation of his manager.Braun’s company, Ithaca Holdings, last week bought Swift’s former record label Big Machine Label Group for $300 million, which owns the masters to her first six albums. Following the acquisition announcement, Swift posted a message to Tumblr in which she described Braun’s ownership of her masters as her “worst-case scenario,” due to his “incessant, manipulative bullying” of her over the years.Braun, in addition to managing Bieber, also works as an “advisor” to West. In 2016 West released a music video featuring himself in bed next to a model of Swift’s naked body, which she described in her post as “revenge porn.” Alongside her note, Swift posted a screenshot of an Instagram post by Bieber, in which he appears on a FaceTime call with West, Braun and another man, captioned “Taylor Swift what up.” Swift pointed it out as an example of him bullying her on social media.Coming to Braun’s defense this week, Bieber claimed full responsibility for the post and insisted his manager had nothing to with it. “I have to be honest though it was my caption and post that I screenshotted of Scooter and Kanye.” he said.But as Twitter user @Princess_Arella noticed, there’s one big problem with his statement — if Bieber had taken the screenshot from his end of the call, he would have appeared in the top-left corner. Instead his face is filling the screen, indicating that the screenshot was taken from Braun and West’s end of the call. The phone appears to be in Braun’s hand at the time. Comments in justin’s response to taylor on instagram, he takes full responsibility for his instagram post of him on facetime with kanye and scooter.THEN HOW IS HE THE BIG ONE ON THE SCREEN???????scooter obviously sent him it and made him post it… STOP.

Fund raiser could see Resident Evil for Game Boy Color released

first_imgResident Evil fans no doubt own every version of the game Capcom has officially released, but there’s one game in the series that made it to 90% complete before being canceled. That game is Resident Evil for the Game Boy Color.The game is a conversion of the PlayStation original, which Capcom decided to port using London-based 3rd party developer HotGen. A final build of the game was created way back in the year 2000, but ultimately Capcom decided against a release because they didn’t think it would sell.Having a game be so near complete yet not get released is a crushing blow for Res Evil fans, but there is now some hope the game will see an unofficial release in ROM form. However, it’s going to take some serious cash for the release to happen.An individual who has in his/her possession two prototype builds of the game has decided to run a fundraiser through a third-party. If the fund raiser reaches $2,000 both prototypes will be released as ROMs. The main draw of this release is the almost complete campaign for Jill including all the cutscenes. The other prototype is an earlier, more incomplete build where you play as Chris. Even so, Jill’s campaign is not perfect as the door at the Guardhouse Underground Watertank cannot be opened. It’s also quite an easy playthrough as the player has unlimited ammo, the zombies move really slowly, and Yawn does not attack. There’s a good chance the ROMs will see a release as the total raised so far is $1,498.63 at time of writing. You have until February 29 to get that total past $2,000. Hopefully it will be reached and then someone with intimate knowledge of the Game Boy Color can spend some time fixing the issues and re-releasing it as a full game.Capcom will surely take issue with the release, but as soon as it hits file-sharing networks there will be little the company can do to stop it spreading.Here’s the game in action:Read more at Assembler Games, via Joystiqlast_img read more

Trulia Asking Price Recovery Picks Up in November

first_img Agents & Brokers Asking Prices Attorneys & Title Companies Home Prices Investors Lenders & Servicers Processing Service Providers Trulia 2012-12-04 Tory Barringer Asking prices on for-sale homes rose in November at a breakneck pace, but the gap between certain markets is growing more pronounced, according to “”Trulia’s””:http://www.trulia.com/ latest “”Price Monitor””:http://info.trulia.com/trulia-price-and-rent-monitor.[IMAGE]Asking home prices rose a seasonally adjusted 0.8 percent from October to November, suggesting an annualized growth rate of 10 percent, Trulia reports. Prices were strong by all other measures, as well, increasing 3.8 percent year-over-year (the largest annual increase to date) and 2.2 percent quarter-over-quarter (a post-crisis high). Even without adjusting for the typically slow post-summer months, prices were up 0.8 percent quarter-over-quarter.Excluding foreclosures, asking prices rose 4.3 percent year-over-year and 1.6 percent quarter-over-quarter (seasonally adjusted).””Prices are rising faster than at any point since the bubble burst, but the price recovery is becoming more uneven,”” said Trulia chief economist Jed Kolko. “”Even though prices rose at a 10 percent annualized rate in the last quarter, more metros are seeing price declines. The price recovery is strongest in the largest metros, and price gains have now surpassed rent gains in the largest 25 rental markets. However, price gains are starting to waver in smaller markets.””Indeed, even as the recovery in national prices accelerated in November, the number of metros reporting quarter-over-quarter price increases fell, dropping to 70 from 79 in August. The disparity is attributed to uneven price spreads across metros.According to a “”blog post””:http://trends.truliablog.com/2012/12/trulia-price-rent-monitors-nov-2012/ written by Kolko, the largest metros–the top 25 out of the 100 tracked by Trulia–have had, on average, larger annual and quarterly price increases than other large metros. For example, the top 25 metros posted an average 5.4 percent increase year-over-year and a 2.4 percent increase quarter over quarter, while the bottom 25 markets saw smaller gains of 1.3 percent (year-over-year) and 0.7 percent (quarter-over-quarter).Out of the top 10 metros with the largest quarterly asking price gains, Salt Lake City topped the list, reporting an increase of 7.8 percent. More notable, though, were the large quarterly gains in Atlanta, Riverside-San Bernardino, and Sacramento–three areas that saw the worst of the impact when the housing crisis began.””Unlike other hard-hit metros such as Phoenix, Las Vegas, and Miami, prices in these metros have been slower to bounce back, declining in February and making smaller gains in August and May,”” Trulia said in a release.Also of note is the fact that while national rents rose at a greater pace than prices (5.6 percent year-over-year), improvements in asking prices actually outpaced improvements in rent in 14 of the 25 largest rental markets. Denver, Seattle, and San Francisco–three of the top 10 metros in terms of rent increases–all posted larger gains in prices than they did in rent.””That means in most of the largest rental markets, homeownership is getting less affordable relative to renting,”” Kolko noted.
