Trying to do as much as we can ahead of time is going to be important”Also, William R. Emmons, Lead Economist, Federal Reserve Bank of St. Louis, provided the afternoon keynote, discussing the state of the economy and what it will take to end the COVID-19 crisis.“Very few of the economic sectors will be spared in this recession,” Emmons notes. “In fact, some, I think, will be devastated.”Emmons notes that the U.S. is still “miles away” from herd immunity, meaning the economy may be closed again. Despite the Fed’s best efforts, he notes, real estate markets are still being hit.“I expect real estate values to decline,” he states, adding that large scale mortgage forbearance delays the inevitable.“Now more than ever it is vital that leaders within the mortgage servicing industry come together to not only discuss the challenges but more importantly, solutions during these trying times,” said Lindsay Wolf, Director of Membership Operations for Five Star Global.

Spot-On Classic

first_imgA sweeping, majestic, sensuous epic of a film, running for just over three hours, and based on the novel by Count Giuseppe Tomasi di Lampedusa, The Leopard charts the effects of the Italian unification movement (the Risorgimento) on a family of Sicilian aristocrats. Burt Lancaster, in what would initially seem a surprising role, plays one of the island’s noblest families, who is forced to come to terms with the rise of the nouveau riche and the merchant class, symbolised by Don Calogero, a shrewd novus homo landowner in Salina’s fiefdom, the village of Donnafugata. Lancaster is truly excellent, simultaneously imbued with gravitas, charm and humour. The film is beautifully shot, and it concentrates on the atmosphere of the period, showcasing the rugged but stunning countryside, and portraying the abject squalor of many of its inhabitants, contrasted with the opulence of the aristocratic lifestyle. The Prince’s dashing young nephew, Tancredi (played by Alain Delon) proves himself a success story in the new Italy, fighting alongside Garibaldi on behalf of the House of Savoy, seeking to unify Italy under King Vittorio Emanuele. He falls in love with Don Calogero’s daughter, the drop-dead gorgeous Angelica (Claudia Cardinale). Visconti, the film’s director, was a committed Marxist despite his aristocratic background, and this paradox runs as a vein through the film in the confrontation between poverty and wealth, young and old, Bourbon and Savoyard.ARCHIVE: 4th week TT 2003last_img read more
