Of employed individuals who work remotely at least one day a week, 23% said they were more likely to consider moving because of the pandemic, as only 13% of employed people who always work at their employer’s location said the same.Zillow economists expect 17.2% more home sales this year than in 2020.“As the pandemic subsides and the economy begins to recover, lowered health risks and renewed homeowner financial confidence should bring more sellers to the market,” said Zillow Economist Arpita Chakravorty. “That increased inventory would ease buyer competition that has driven prices higher during the pandemic, but expect a steady pace of home value growth to persist into the near future. Mortgage rates have risen some but are still low by historical standards, adding to people’s purchasing power and helping to keep competition for homes revved up.”Pandemic-related job loss has contributed to a number of the nation’s renters being forced to sit on the sidelines in a buyer’s market. Federal actions extending eviction and foreclosure moratoria have been extended several times, as estimated 2.3 million Americans are currently in forbearance plans according to the Mortgage Bankers Association (MBA). Zillow panelists believe a large majority (85%) of cash-strapped renters will either find ways to remain in their current home or will avoid eviction by moving to a less-expensive home. Still, panelists said they expect some 15% of currently distressed renters will ultimately be evicted, representing millions of households.In terms of the ideal home that shoppers seek, the survey found that Americans prefer a 2,000-square-foot home with three bedrooms and two bathrooms—the same as when surveyed a year ago.And while the ideal home has not changed, the number of homes has dried up as the demand has far exceeded the supply nationwide. A majority of ZHPE panelists (53%) expect home inventory to grow again this year, likely during the second half of 2021. An increase in existing-homes being listed for sale is expected to be the biggest factor in the reversal, with 38% of panelists saying this will factor as a catalyst for this growth in inventory.”As the economy continues to recover, more potential sellers will enter the market as they gain confidence in their employment,” said Samer Kuraishi, President and Founder at The ONE Street Company in Washington, D.C. “It’s been tough on homeowners who want to sell but might have lost their job, or cannot work remotely. Increased employment stability will only raise confidence and push people off the sidelines. While we have optimism about April and the summer, our work with clients will remain the same: arm, educate, and empower them to learn the market and understand the road ahead.”Strong competition for the short supply available forced prices upward last year, as the typical U.S. home appreciated by more than $20,000 in 2020. Even with an expectation for more inventory to help meet buyer demand, ZHPE panelists on average expect home prices to grow 6.2% in 2021—a full two percentage points higher than when they were surveyed in Q4 2020—as several panelists call for double-digit price growth this year.“In the wake of last year’s heady home equity gains, these new projections indicate that the aggregate value of homes across the country will increase by another $2 trillion in 2021,” said Terry Loebs, founder of Pulsenomics. “This is great news for existing homeowners, but even with a robust economic rebound in the coming months affordability will likely remain a challenge for many aspirational renters looking to move into homeownership this year.”Click here to read more about the Q1 2021 Zillow Home Price Expectations (ZHPE) survey.

first_imgBack in the 1980s, when Mark Schuster was completing an adult neurology rotation at a Harvard teaching hospital, a woman was brought to the emergency room with urinary incontinence and other symptoms, as well as signs of a herniated disc, including a confirmatory myelogram.She required surgery, making her what the neurology team called a great teaching case. It was one that came with a lesson that, for Schuster, went well beyond how to address medical condition.The radiologist handling the case unexpectedly reversed his reading and the patient’s neurosurgeon canceled the surgery. When the neurology team asked why, the radiologist admitted that the neurosurgeon had pressured him to change his reading. When the team met with the neurosurgeon, he said that he believed the patient was a lesbian because of what he considered a suspicious novel on her bedside table.“So, she’s a lesbian, what does it matter?” Schuster exclaimed, in what he recalled was a sort of out-of-body experience. He was startled by his own abrupt and indignant response.The neurosurgeon made it clear that he would not operate on a lesbian. And he didn’t. Eventually, the neurology team arranged for an orthopedic surgeon to perform the operation.Now the William Berenberg Professor of Pediatrics at Harvard Medical School (HMS), Schuster was this year’s guest speaker at the School’s second Diversity Dialogue lecture: “The Doctor is Out: A Conversation With Dr. Mark Schuster on Being a Gay Physician at Harvard.”Attended by more than 200 faculty, staff, and students from the Longwood Medical Area, the hour-long discussion in the Carl W. Walter Amphitheater on Sept. 29 allowed attendees to talk with Schuster about what it means to be an LGBT physician today.Schuster, who is also chief of the Division of General Pediatrics and vice chair for health policy in the Department of Medicine at Boston Children’s Hospital, used the anecdote to illustrate one of the many instances in his career where he observed LGBT bias in the medical field.In 2010, Schuster communicated some of his experiences as a gay physician in a speech at Boston Children’s Hospital’s GLBT and Friends Celebration. That wasn’t the end. After the talk was published in the journal Academic Pediatrics in 2012, the speech was reproduced by WBUR and covered by The New York Times. The speech went viral. Today, Schuster’s talk is being used as a teaching tool in medical schools across the country.“I was just telling my story,” said Schuster. “It was just a speech at Children’s. It wasn’t meant to lead me to speak here today.”Time for questionsAt this year’s Diversity Dialogue, audience questions ranged from how to find an LGBT mentor in the medical field to how to combat conscious and unconscious bias in the classroom or in the clinic.“It’s important to speak up when you can,” Schuster said.Schuster recognized that power dynamics between students and their teachers or clinical supervisors often make it hard to speak up against bias. He emphasized, however, that today there are far more resources available to students and faculty to confront these issues.“There are people to go to. Now, folks can come to the LGBT office,” at HMS and Harvard School of Dental Medicine LGBT Office, a division of the Office for Diversity Inclusion and Community Partnership (DICP), he said.“It is no small thing that is happening here today,” added Jessica Halem, event moderator and program manager at the LGBT office, of the significance of an open-forum discussion on LGBT affairs in medicine.“This is hugely auspicious,” she said.One student asked Schuster what advances may be on the horizon for other minority groups in medicine.“I hope there will be changes, not just for LGBT people, but for people of color and for women,” Schuster said. “Change is slow, but there are new generations coming.”One of the final audience questions prompted Schuster to reflect on how the viral response to his 2010 speech made such an impact, and how his continued commitment to LGBT rights in the medical field has affected his life and career.“I feel appreciative. It was an accidental gift. When I retire, this will probably be the most impactful thing I’ve done,” he said.Schuster was a principal member of the team that drafted the RAND report for the Clinton administration that showed that openly gay men and lesbians could be successfully integrated into the military. He is an elected member of the Institute of Medicine and recently served on its Committee on Lesbian, Gay, Bisexual, and Transgender Health Issues and Research Gaps and Opportunities. Now, Schuster works to advocate for the LGBT community at HMS and its affiliates, including giving talks such as the one delivered for the Diversity Dialogue series.The Diversity Dialogues are a series of presentations on topics exploring diversity and inclusion. They represent a collaborative effort by faculty and staff across the Harvard Longwood Campus.

first_imgPittsburgh had better count their blessings because a “Batch” in the hand is worth a “Leftwich” in the bush. Remember, a tad less than a fortnight ago, Batch’s roster position was tenuous at best, and in the worst case his playing days seemed to be headed straight for the undertaker’s slab.Even though he might not have been named the starter, answer this question for me. How many times has the career of Charlie Batch been assumed to have been dead and buried only to have the Steelers organization in their time of need exhume the body because as we all know “anybody is better than nobody at all.”Dennis Dixon is the right choice to open the season for Pittsburgh. It is fortunate that he got in more reps with the first team in light of the injury to Byron Leftwich. A few weeks ago I wrote that Big Ben Roethlisberger was getting far too many reps with the first team during training camp with the “real” season peeping from behind the nearest tombstone, or something to that effect.The only drawback to Batch and Leftwich is that over the past several years both men have been subject to injury. If there are any reservations about either athlete one would be that their injuries are many and would cause any GM to be a bit squeamish about dedicating a roster spot to either one. But let me make one thing perfectly clear. If either man is healthy both can toss the rock with considerable speed and accuracy, as long as they have competent pass catchers and adequate pass blocking.Mike Tomlin did not listen to the talking heads. He did the right thing. If Dixon was not ready, at least according to the experts, why in the heck would they line him up with the first team for such a considerable amount of time during the preseason?At least Tomlin and offensive coordinator Bruce Arians did not repeat the “fiasco” of last season. During the 2009 campaign just at the “zero hour,” Dennis Dixon was anointed the starter just prior to a crucial Baltimore Ravens game after Roethlisberger had suffered a possible “concussion” the week before. In spite of his “injury,” Big Ben continued to take all the first team reps during the week leading up to the game. Was there a saboteur lurking about?Dixon was told that he was going to start around 24 hours before that game and without any first team reps or a credible game plan. In spite of that scenario, coupled with lousy play calling by the Arians, Dixon almost defeated the Ravens.After that emotional and heartbreaking loss, number seven’s heart, mettle and toughness were questioned by one of the toughest players to ever play the game, teammate Hines Ward. Ward had this to say. “There was a 50-50 split in the locker room as to whether or not Ben should have played.” Ward also went on to say that “he’s [Ward] played with concussions in the past.” Shortly thereafter Ward was unceremoniously tied to the whipping post and verbally assaulted in print and on radio and television.Dixon now has a little less than a week to prepare for the Atlanta Falcons, not just a mere 24 hours. He has more time to study the Falcons’ defense and the Steelers do not have to employ a “kindergarten” version of their offensive playbook. They cannot run the “Einstein” version but they do not have to revert to the Peewee Herman variety either.If Dixon plays well, we may have a quarterback controversy on our hands. If he falters, the red carpet will be rolled out for Big Ben. But one thing is perfectly clear, if Dixon performs with an acceptable amount of competency, just as Roethlisberger has earned and been anointed the starter of this football team, Dixon will be the number two man in charge. Who has the third or fourth position is well, just a crapshoot.The Steelers face another not so discernable dilemma, and that is not whether Roethlisberger starts or does not start. The dilemma is not the inexperience of Dixon or Batch being a bit “long in the tooth.” The difficulty that Pittsburgh currently faces is the indecisiveness of Tomlin. Tomlin had better seize the wheel of his “ship” and make those walk the plank that don’t march to the beat of his drummer.(Aubrey Bruce can be reached at: [email protected] or by phone at 412.583.6741.) This coming weekend the Steelers begin their 2010 campaign in the city that is quickly earning the name, “The Big Queasy.” There is lots of stomach churning and Tums chewing going on “n’at” over at the headquarters of Steeler Nation. Just when I thought all was lost in the guts and fortitude department, Steelers head coach Mike Tomlin did not name the more experienced Charlie Batch as his temporary starter but the more raw and athletic “young buck,” Dennis Dixon.last_img read more

OSU sophomore midfield/back Carolina Vergroessen (28) tries to defend the ball from California freshman forward Janaye Sakkas (20) during a field hockey game on Oct. 25, 2015, at Buckeye Varsity Field. OSU won 6-3. Credit: Robert Scarpinito /Copy ChiefThe women of the Ohio State field hockey team are set to compete in their final regular-season game this weekend before the Big Ten tournament begins.It’s no surprise that the pressure will be on as OSU (9-8, 4-3) goes head to head against its rival, No. 11 Michigan (14-3, 6-1), on Saturday.The Big Ten tournament consists of eight out of nine conference teams competing over the course of three days. OSU is currently tied for fourth place with Indiana.A victory against the Wolverines would keep OSU secure with a winning season overall, and sophomore forward/midfielder Maddy Humphrey said she sees the game as a last chance to bring 100 percent of the team’s hard work to the field.“Goals for Michigan are to be at full strength for the first game in a long time,” Humphrey said. “We’ve had at least one starter out (due to injury) for the last eight games, so I’m excited for all of the us to be back on the field playing together and playing hard against them.”OSU’s last victory against Michigan was in 2011 when the Buckeyes came out on top 2-1. This year, the Wolverines are led by Shannon Scavelli with nine goals, three assists and 21 points followed by Lauren Thomas with eight goals, four assists and 20 points. The team is coming off a 5-0 shutout win against Michigan State.With the competition and rivalry fresh in her mind, senior forward Peanut Johnson said she plans to put it all on the line Saturday to ensure one last victory in her final collegiate regular-season contest.“For me personally, I will do whatever it takes to get the team win,” Johnson said. “Being my last regular-season game ever, I want to leave it all out there.”OSU enters the game with three of the top quality players in the Big Ten in Johnson, Humphrey and sophomore goalie Liz Tamburro. Looking past individual successes, however, Johnson said she believes every single player on the team is a vital component in the grand scheme of things.“Oftentimes a goal is scored as the result of our incredible defense making a save, getting possession and clearing it out of our circle, distributing it up to our (midfielders), who fight for position and feed it to the forwards,” Johnson said. “It’s also the girls that may not get to play often, but practice with us every day and push us and support us through thick and thin. We win and lose as a team, and I think that is the most important thing.”Humphrey, who stands at fourth place in Big Ten standings in total points (29), agreed, adding that the team’s support has improved her personal season.“(Looking forward) I want to continue to stay healthy, work with my team hard in practice and encourage each other to play at our best abilities for every game and practice in the near future. Our team is very united this year and it has shaped me into a better player.”OSU and Michigan are set to finish out the regular season at 1 p.m. on Saturday.Johnson selected for NFHCA Senior All-Star GameJohnson, OSU’s top scorer, is one of 38 seniors from Division 1 teams nationwide to be selected to compete in Victory Sports Tours/National Field Hockey Coaches Association Division I Senior Game. With 72 career games and 93 total points under her belt, Johnson’s biggest game was on senior day last Sunday against California when she racked up a career-high seven points through a hat trick and an assist.Johnson said that playing in the game with fellow seniors from around the country is the perfect way to wrap up her field hockey career.“I am so thrilled and honored to be selected to play this year,” Johnson said. “Having this opportunity to play one last time with these incredible athletes is truly an honor.”OSU vs. Michigan: Five-year history11/2/14: Michigan 2, Ohio State 1 (Columbus, Ohio)10/20/13: Michigan 2, Ohio State 1 (OT) (Columbus, Ohio)11/1/12: Michigan 1, Ohio State 0 (Iowa City, Iowa)10/14/12: Michigan 3, Ohio State 1 (Ann Arbor, Michigan)9/23/11: Ohio State 2, Michigan 1 (Columbus, Ohio)After the WolverinesAfter Saturday’s tilt against Michigan, OSU will have a few days off before the Big Ten tournament begins on Thursday in Bloomington, Indiana.

Urban Meyer stopped before finishing his sentence because even he knew he didn’t believe the words that were about to come out of his mouth. The Buckeyes had just pulled off one of the most improbable victories you’ll ever see against Purdue. There were 47 seconds left, 61 yards to go, and an 8-point deficit staring Meyer and the Buckeye team straight in the face. Heisman Trophy candidate and sophomore quarterback Braxton Miller was lying in the hospital. Yet somehow redhsirt junior backup quarterback Kenny Guiton, who said his career’s previous shining moment came in OSU’s glorified preseason scrimmage, orchestrated touchdown drives in regulation and overtime to lead the Buckeyes to victory. What did Meyer think the odds were of OSU pulling it out? “I knew it from -,” he said before stopping. He wanted to say he knew it was going to happen, that he had every confidence in the world that Guiton could do the job that his starter struggled to do all day. But instead he laughed. “I’m still trying to figure this bad boy out,” he said. “We won, right?” Meyer wasn’t so light-hearted in the moment. It took Guiton four drives before he finally broke through. The first drive ended when a field goal clanked off the left upright. The second ended in a safety, and the third in an interception. “He threw the pick, and I grabbed (Guiton), I said, ‘You’re going to go win us a game,’” Meyer said. There probably isn’t a coach in America that wouldn’t tell his quarterback the same thing in that situation. But what separates the good coaches from the great ones is the ability to make the players actually believe what they’re saying, even if they don’t believe it themselves. Somehow, Meyer was able to get that across to Guiton because he looked like a believer on his final two drives – both of which ended in touchdowns. Guiton isn’t the only one buying into what Meyer is selling. When he talks, people listen, and more importantly for a football team, they perform. When Meyer called out junior receiver Corey Brown for his lack of agility, he responded the next week by returning a punt for a touchdown. When Meyer lifted redshirt junior receiver Chris Fields from the irrelevance of the bottom of the depth chart, he plucked Guiton’s game-tying touchdown pass a moment before the ball hit the turf. At 8-0, most of the Buckeye faithful believes, too. Before Meyer and his team sang “Carmen Ohio” in front of the south stands, the fans that didn’t leave early began to chant, “Urban! Urban! Urban!” Meyer took a step forward, raised his arm and unleashed a Tiger Woods-style fist pump. The crowd went absolutely berserk. Meyer then raised his arms twice, culminating in a deafening cheer. The players broke from their Carmen formation and danced in celebration. It was euphoric, and Meyer was the catalyst of it all. The job Meyer has done is especially impressive given the context in which he’s done it. Offensive coordinator Tom Herman described his players as “a bit fragile” because of the tumultuous 2011 year that saw OSU have three head coaches and lose seven games, including a 24-17 defeat against Florida in the Gator Bowl on Jan. 1 Fragile players have fragile psyches and when things start to go wrong, it’s easy to throw in the towel. Last season, OSU played eight games that were decided by seven points or less and lost six of them. When one thing started to go wrong, the problems tended to snowball. Perhaps the best example is the last time Miller had to completely leave a game. When Miller was injured against Nebraska in 2011, the Buckeyes blew a 21-point lead and lost. “You’ve got to be part-psychologist throughout parts of the game and throughout parts of the week, because (the coaches) all know X, Y and Z are going to work, but it only works if the players believe it’s going to work,” Herman said. “I think that’s been as big of a change as any.” These players – whether it’s realistic or not – believe. When the situation gets tough, the players dig in for a battle. Every coach tries to create that type of environment, but not many are successful. It appears Meyer has been. “When it really gets really hard, the people that don’t work very hard just let go of the rope and do something else,” Meyer said. “If you hold onto the rope … and it’s amazing we did talk about it this morning in the hotel, the reason we do, it’s so hard. You come in February, March, when it gets so friggin’ hard, you can’t give in; you’ve got too much invested; that’s my opinion why they won the game.” read more
