He is a University of Alabama graduate with a degree in journalism and a minor in communications. He has worked for publications—both print and online—covering numerous beats. A Connecticut native, Albanese currently resides in Lewisville. Insiders from the housing market reacted favorably to President Donald Trump’s announcement that he intends to nominate Dana T. Wade to be the new Federal Housing Commissioner. “Dana is ideally suited to succeed Commissioner Montgomery as head of FHA and I applaud the nomination,” said Ed Delgado, President and CEO and Five Star Global. “Brian Montgomery, now positioned for HUD’s Deputy Secretary, possesses a strong grasp of the issues impacting American homeownership and will continue to lead with an abiding commitment to public service; I look forward to their future accomplishments at HUD.”Lindsey Johnson, President of the U.S. Mortgage Insurers (USMI), said her organization “applauds” the nomination of Wade.”Wade is a respected expert with broad experience in financial and housing policy issues. Her previous work, including her time as Acting Federal Housing Commissioner and Assistant Secretary for Housing, will allow her to swiftly start to address the important issues facing the housing finance system,” Johnson said. “We look forward to working closely with Dana Wade in seeking ways to establish a more complementary, collaborative, and consistent housing finance system that prudently enables homeownership for American families while also protecting taxpayers.””FHA is going through a substantial and much-needed transformation under Commissioner Montgomery. The priorities for FHA include massive IT modernization, rulemaking on the origination and servicing side of the forward and reverse mortgage programs, improvements in risk management, and interagency alignment on a host of issues,” said Tim Rood, Chairman and Founder of The Collingwood Group, a SitusAMC company. “President Trump’s choice to nominate Dana Wade for Assistant Secretary for HUD & FHA Commissioner is well deserved and well-timed. Wade has held positions at the Office of Management & Budget, Congress, and Appropriations that will be very beneficial as the FHA implements it’s aggressive transformation initiatives.”Trump announced Wade’s nomination last week. Wade was previously the acting Federal Housing Commissioner and Assistant Secretary for Housing from July 2017 to June 2018. She supervised more than 2,400 employees and implemented risk management and monitoring of the Federal Housing Agency’s $1.3 trillion portfolio.She also served as a Program Associate Director for General Government at the Office of Management and Budget from December 2018 to December 2019, where she led budget oversight for six Executive Branch agencies with a focus on financial services, including the Department of Housing and Urban Development (HUD). “Dana Wade is a spectacular individual who has been enormously valuable to President Trump and this Department. We appreciate Brian Montgomery’s continued stable leadership and are elated with Dana’s nomination. We look forward to Dana’s very capable, guiding hand at FHA and urge the Senate to swiftly confirm her,” said Dr. Benjamin Carson, Secretary of HUD.Wade also has been Deputy Staff Director for the United States Senate Committee on Banking, HUD, and the Republican Deputy Staff Director for the United States Senate Committee on Appropriations under Senator Richard Shelby (R-Alabama). The current Federal Housing Commissioner, Brian Montgomery, was nominated by Trump last year as the new Deputy Secretary of HUD. The U.S. Senate Committee on Banking approved the nomination of Montgomery in December. Montgomery was approved by a final vote of 20-5. He has yet to be approved by the Senate. He has served as HUD’s Assistant Secretary and managed the day-to-day operations of the agency and assisted the Secretary in leading the department’s nearly 8,000 employees. He is also the Commissioner of the Federal Housing Agency. Subscribe

RelatedPosts Ighalo: My best moment as ‘Red Devil’ EPL: Crystal Palace stun sloppy Man U EPL: Gunners gun for West Ham scalp Joshua King scored the only goal of the match as Bournemouth recorded a 1-0 win over Manchester United in Saturday afternoon’s Premier League clash at the Vitality Stadium. The former United youngster struck just before the interval as Eddie Howe’s side moved into sixth position in the Premier League table, with the Red Devils dropping to eighth as they lost for the fourth time in the league this season. United had a big chance inside the first three minutes when Daniel James broke down the left before delivering a low cross into Andreas Pereira, but the Brazil international completely missed the ball as Bournemouth escaped a dangerous moment in the early exchanges. Anthony Martial then struck at Bournemouth goalkeeper Aaron Ramsdale in the seventh minute before Pereira and Fred took it in turns to miss the target as United continued to force the issue early on. Bournemouth’s first half-chance of the match arrived in the 16th minute through Harry Wilson, but the on-loan Liverpool attacker saw his effort deflected behind before Callum Wilson nudged one wide of the post from the resulting corner. Fred then had one deflected over the home side’s crossbar as both teams threatened to make the breakthrough during an incredibly open period of the match. James was excellent for United in the early exchanges and had a chance of his own in the 21st minute after collecting a half-cleared free kick, but the Wales international’s strike just missed Ramsdale’s goal. Ryan Fraser had a clear opportunity for the home side just before the 30-minute mark after smart work from King, but the attacker could only fire into the body of United goalkeeper David de Gea. The pace of the match dropped considerably in the latter stages of the first half, with both teams struggling to find that final pass with the conditions creating plenty of mistakes. Bournemouth did take the lead on the stroke of the interval, though, with King managing to collect a cross from Adam Smith before lifting the ball over Aaron Wan-Bissaka and finishing from close range. It was smart work from the former United youngster, but there is no question that Ole Gunnar Solskjaer will have been disappointed with his team’s defending as King had far too much time and space, with Wan-Bissaka and Victor Lindelof having to accept a share of the blame. The first half-chance of the second period also came for Bournemouth, but De Gea did not have to overexert himself to keep out a volley from Ryan Fraser after a bright move. The pitch continued to open up for Howe’s side as the half progressed, with King, Callum Wilson and Harry Wilson all finding plenty of space in the final third as United looked more and more nervy at the back. Ramsdale had to keep out a strike from Pereira just before the hour as United quickened the pace, but Bournemouth were still causing problems down the other end, and De Gea had to save from King and Harry Wilson in quick succession in the 63rd minute. Jefferson Lerma then struck wide of the away side’s goal in the 70th minute just after United had enjoyed a decent spell of possession inside Bournemouth’s half of the field. The Cherries had a super chance to double their lead 15 minutes from time when Harry Wilson found space in a dangerous position, but the on-loan Liverpool attacker could not find a route past De Gea. Mason Greenwood and Brandon Williams both came off the United bench 10 minutes from time, and the former hit the post from close-range in the 82nd minute after a dream of a pass from Fred. Ramsdale then had to keep out a strike from Scott McTominay during a spell of intense pressure from the 20-time English champions. United continued to force the issue late on but it was not to be for the struggling giants, who have now won just three of their 11 Premier League matches this season, suffering four defeats in the process. Solskjaer’s side are next in action at home to Partizan in the Europa League on Thursday night before hosting Brighton & Hove Albion in the Premier League next Sunday. Bournemouth, meanwhile, will resume their league campaign away to Newcastle United next Saturday.Tags: Bournemouth FCEnglish Premier LeagueManchester United
“You have to see a game through. We know the size of this fan base. They won’t accept us sitting behind the game. I would rather try to win a game than not. “There’s no rocket science formula. You have to win football matches, keep a clean sheet and thrive on the atmosphere generated. It takes big players to play in front of a big fan base.” Fulham started with teenager Cauley Woodrow up front but manager Felix Magath introduced Rodallega at half-time and the Colombian repaid his manager’s faith. It was Rodallega’s first appearance since February, and his fifth goal in 13 games this season. Magath said: ” I was not always so lucky with him but he has shown in training he is in good shape. I asked him if he comes in will he be in good shape and he said yes and that he will score.” Rodallega dedicated his goal to the Fulham supporters, who travelled to Villa Park in large numbers and gave their team terrific backing. He told fulhamfc.com: “I’m happy because I waited a long time for the opportunity. Steve Sidwell told me, ‘Hugo, this is your 45 minutes’. “I tried to help the team and then when I scored I was so happy. I was thinking that my family’s there, with the supporters, and of course the fans. “The fans have been unbelievable with me. All the time they call my name. This is for the fans and I want to say, ‘Thank you’.” The striker suffered the injury in training this week, robbing Aston Villa of one of their key players for the end of the season and also denying Benteke a place in the Belgium squad in Brazil this summer. Belgium have qualified for the World Cup finals for the first time since 2002 and, with a generation of hugely-talented young players having emerged, the Red Devils have been tipped to do well. Paul Lambert expects Christian Benteke to have more chances to shine on the world stage after his World Cup dreams were ended by a torn Achilles. Villa boss Lambert said: ” No one knew the extent of the injury and we had to wait and see what it was. We were hoping it was just a strain but weren’t sure until he went to the hospital. “He’s okay at the moment but whether that’s just a feeling of shock I’m not sure. He knows he’s going to miss the World Cup but he’s in a generation of Belgium players you think will qualify for more tournaments.” Benteke’s absence, plus Gabriel Agbonlahor’s failure to recover from a stomach bug, meant Lambert gave Grant Holt only his second start for Villa in Saturday’s Premier League clash with Fulham. Holt scored with a second-half header but it was not enough to prevent Fulham, who began the day bottom of the table, claiming a crucial 2-1 victory. Kieran Richardson opened the scoring with a terrific strike into the top corner and, after Holt had equalised, substitute Hugo Rodallega headed the winner four minutes from time. It was Villa’s 10th home defeat of the season – only Fulham have lost more – and the fans made their feelings clear at the final whistle. Lambert said: ” We can’t keep doing this. We have to rectify the home form, there’s no two ways about it. “Away from home, it’s well documented we’ve had our best performances, but you can’t keep losing at home. Press Association
By Rawle ToneyPATRICK Haynes, the lone Guyanese and West Indian on the recently-formed FIBA 3X3 Commission, revealed that a championship for basketball’s shortest and most exciting format will be implemented in the Caribbean Basketball Confederation (CBC) region. Haynes, speaking exclusively to Chronicle Sport, highlighted that the Commission, which will be chaired by Russia’s and former Utah Jazz forward Andrei Kirilenko for the next four years (2019-2023), has given him the mandate to oversee the 3X3 format in Central America, the Caribbean and South America.“Due to the rapid growth of 3X3 basketball, FIBA found it necessary for them to create the 3X3 Commission, so that they can properly govern the sport moving forward, not only leading up to the Tokyo 2020 Olympics, but also for the World Championships for each of the different continents,” Haynes said.Over the years, thanks to Ansa McAl under its Mackeson brand, local ‘ballers’ battled in lucrative 3X3 tournaments. However, now, Haynes said the fast-growing format is going to be used towards grassroots recruiting, where “national teams can start using 3X3 towards identifying talent to now field both junior and senior national teams.”Patrick, who also serves as the General Secretary for the Guyana Basketball Federation (GBF), along with his twin brother Paul, have helped tremendously to return Guyana to the CBC Championship, usually going above and beyond to ensure that the GABA is properly equipped, both on and off to the court, to secure success.Their hard work paid off in 2018, in Suriname, when Stanton Rose captained Guyana to their maiden CBC tournament title. “As a Guyanese and a West Indian, I am honoured to be the only one to represent Central America, the Caribbean and South America (on the Commission) and they have given me the mandate to rule the sport in these three areas. I feel that I have the ability and the skills, seeing that I’ve already implemented two successful 3X3 competitions, partnering with the International Basketball Foundation (IBF),” Haynes noted.The FIBA 3X3 Commission, which recently held a one-day meeting at the Patrick Baumann House of Basketball, FIBA Headquarters a newly-formed group, not in place in the previous working cycle and consisting of 18 members who are former or current 3X3 players, officials, national federations representatives and private organisers.The commission held discussions on a wide range of topics which included an update on the growth of the FIBA 3X3 World Tour and the entire FIBA 3X3 competition network, the qualification system for national team events, the FIBA 3X3 Federation Ranking and women in 3X3 – one of FIBA’s priority strategic pillars.During their life cycle, the Commission will be tasked to develop recommendations for improvement to 3X3 governance and organisation and for the introduction of new official 3X3 competitions, to give advice on the allocation of official 3X3 competitions, to be responsible for training, examining and implementing the requested qualification of all 3X3 officials and to draw up the text of the FIBA 3X3 Basketball Rules, draft amendments to these rules for adoption by the Central Board, give the official interpretation of the rules and solve doubtful cases or cases not clearly covered by the rules themselves.They will also be tasked to study the regulations governing all 3X3 competitions and to recommend changes to such regulations and to monitor the state of 3X3 around the world and to make recommendations for the development of 3X3. The meeting was also attended by FIBA Secretary General, Andreas Zagklis and FIBA Executive Director Europe, Kamil Novak.The other members of the FIBA 3X3 Commission are Peter Bodnar (HUN), Lothar Boesing (GER), Jay Demings (USA), Jiang Guan (CHN), Patrick Haynes (GUY), Martin Ho Suie Sang (NED), Michal Konecny (CZE), Hoang Bao Nguyen (VIE), Jerome Prigent (FRA), Giancarlo Sergi (SUI), Myagmarjav Luvsandash (MGL), Radu Petre (ROU), Mikiko Yasuda (JPN), Rae Lin D’Alie (ITA), Jasmina Juras (SRB) and Michael Linklater (CAN).

By Rick GeffkenYou won’t find Simon Lake on a Monmouth County map. Mister Simon Lake was the inventor of the submarine. If you’re familiar with his name and fame, you still might be surprised to learn that his first under water excursions were in our very own Two Rivers. In 1894 Simon Lake piloted a wheeled wooden submersible along the bottom of Shrewsbury River. Yes, you read that correctly – it was a wooden submarine on wheels!Speaking at the Atlantic Highland Historical Society recently, video historian John Schneider told an intrigued audience how Simon Lake made undersea navigation possible. Lake’s is a story of ingenuity, persistence, disappointments, and ultimately success, tempered by delayed recognition.If you’ve ever had a meal at the Shore Casino or commuted to New York via the Seastreak Ferry you’ve been on Simon Lake Drive in Atlantic Highlands, named for the inventor. You may have seen the replica there of Lake’s Argonaut Junior, given to the town by the Atlantic Highlands Lions Club in 1994.Simon Lake was born in Pleasantville in 1866. His father was an inventor, as well as a developer of Atlantic City and Ocean City. But young Simon’s talents weren’t simply inherited. He developed his engineering skills working in his father’s foundry and machine shop. He was also captivated by the Nautilus submarine he read about in Jules Verne’s “Twenty Thousand Leagues Under The Sea.” His prototype submarine was in fact named after the scientific name for nautilus, “argonauta.”This replica of SImon Lake’s Argonaut Junior sits in the Atlantic Highlands Harbor parking lot. It was given to the town by the Atlantic Highlands Lion Club in 1994.After working in Baltimore making winding gears for oyster boats, Simon Lake moved to Atlantic Highlands in 1893, primarily because its waterfront afforded him a shallow water lab for his experiments. He lived with his Uncle Somers Champion’s family on Bay View Avenue while he tinkered with rudimentary submarine designs. Coming to his nephew’s rescue, Somers Champion asked the Atlantic Highlands mayor and other dignitaries to sign a shingle. He attached it to a sash weight and threw it from the pier. The Argonaut Junior dove again. When Lake held the retrieved shingle up in front of the crowd, “Huzzahs!” and loud applause signaled his triumph. Nonetheless, most of the press reports labeled it a stunt with little real value, ridiculing the entire episode.The U.S. Navy was also not convinced Lake’s design was worthwhile. Competitor John Philip Holland was conducting submersible operations in Raritan Bay around the same time, and in 1897 his company was the first to win a government submarine contract. The thwarted Simon Lake began selling his submarines to a number of other countries in the first years of the 20th century, among them Austria, Germany, and Russia. Eventually the United States government did come around to Lake’s innovations when it bought his sub- marines during the buildup for World War I. Simon Lake’s enduring efforts won his company many Navy con- tracts over the years. In 1964, the Navy built submarine ten- ders in what was called the Simon Lake class. The USS Simon Lake serviced the fleet for an enviable 35 years, duplicating Lake’s own persistence. After his initial fits and starts, Simon Lake became a wealthy industrialist. The innovative naval architect explored other engineering interests. For more about his life, his companies, and his other inventions, readers can visit John Schneider’s site at JerseyBayshore.com.Video historian John Schneider demonstrating his filming techniques during his May 18th Atlantic Highlands Historical presentation on submarine inventor Simon Lake.So, how DO you get to Simon Lake? Simon Lake moved his company’s operations to Bridgeport on Long Island Sound in 1907. When he passed away in 1945, he was laid to rest where he lived during those years in Milford, Connecticut. You can visit his unassuming gravesite in the Kings Highway Cemetery.Simon Lake, adopted son of Atlantic Highlands, is acknowledged today as the Father of the Submarine. Thomas Alva Edison Lake – the son Simon named in homage to another New Jersey inventor – wrote that his father’s Argonaut Junior was “built of pitch pine, as an inexpensive way to demonstrate his principles of submergence that would ultimately change the development of submarine technology. When submerged to a shallow seafloor, a diver’s door could be opened and he could retrieve articles or exit and re-enter the little 14- foot submarine by maintaining a pressurized compartment. A novel feature was the use of wheels to keep the vessel from getting stuck to the bottom and to provide mobility by the use of interior hand cranks.”In December 1894, Simon Lake and his cousin Bart Champion took the little craft to Blackfish Hole, a 20-foot deep stretch of the Shrewsbury/Navesink confluence, just off Rocky Point at Hartshorne Woods. Once submerged, the vehicle rode across the bottom of the river as the pair of, well, Argonauts, watched marine life swim past their porthole. Excited with this success, Lake was confident the United States government couldn’t help but be interested in this new technology, if he could get it to the Navy’s attention.Lake came up with a way to generate the positive publicity he needed a few weeks later. In front of dozens of newspaper reporters and a large crowd in Atlantic Highlands, Lake took the Argonaut Junior to the bottom of the harbor and surfaced with a handful of starfish and clamshells. Skeptical observers murmured that objects had been stowed on board ahead of time.
