While foreclosure numbers have declined since 2007, many homeowners still face the threat of foreclosure when their mortgage payment becomes overdue.While legal processes vary among states, property owners who are behind on their mortgage payment can use the short sale guide as a resource to explore their options and prevent a foreclosure on their home. Information provided by JWB can help rental home owners find alternative solutions to their housing problems.”The owner of a property could qualify to complete a short sale on an investment home if all guidelines are followed,” a JWB Real Estate Capital source said.Rental properties face tax implications when they are foreclosed, resulting in a property owner facing other consequences when the deed gets to the lender. JWB provides homeowners with both information on IRS forms and IRA financing to avoid when using recourse lend types.”We opened a program earlier this year that helps investors use stored funds in an IRA or 401K to purchase homes to avoid the issues with foreclosures or short sales that can be common,” the source said.JWB manages more than 300 clients around the world. Most recently, JWB has opened a private construction division for investment clients to build new homes and create a new monthly revenue stream.Investors can find the short sale guide created by JWB here.

F irst there was the iMac. Then came the muggers’ favourite, the iPod. Soon, if you take a long run-up and leap across the supermarket from electricals to in-store, you may find i-Bread. But far from being a bizarrely-conceived bready gadget – you can’t, or probably shouldn’t, walk down the street with it stuffed in your ears – this is actually a new concept in artisan-style functional breads.Founder of The Cotswold Food Partnership Carl Le Neveu explains: “i-Bread is about intelligent foods, it’s about ’I’ for me. You feel good buying it because it’s good for you, or because you’ve made an informed choice – for craft, for artisan, for premium. We believe, in time, it will be a recognisable brand in grocery.”The functionality comes from, for example, a crusty white loaf with the fibre and mineral content of wholemeal. Old hat to the plant bakers, maybe, but an idea still largely untouched in in-store, high street bakeries and foodservice. Cotswold is looking to bring its concept to market as a premix or as part-baked products for bake-off via wholesalers. “Consumers are now smarter about what they’re digesting. That, coupled with the huge change in UK demographics, presented an opportunity I couldn’t ignore,” says Le Neveu.One tactic will be identifying markets for the breads on a local level. “There are almost 750,000 Polish migrant workers in the UK. Part of our model is to offer speciality breads regionally, where there are strong pockets of communities.”Le Neveu spent the firm’s first few months securing ingredients supply from the continent. The company will be built around outsourcing. “In fact, we’re taking outsourcing to the extreme! But we’re not agents – there’s far more value to our business. We’re all about NPD and building brands.” n—-=== The pros and cons ===BIGGEST CHALLENGE:I went into this knowing I was prepared to invest in the business personally. I identified the opportunity within premium bread markets and I was ready to grasp it. I could take the financial risk and all of the set-up costs were funded by myself. I don’t take a salary – I want as much income as possible going back into the firm.BIGGEST SATISFACTION:Being at the sharp end of any major company has its stresses and strains – you’ve got budgets to hit and timelines to meet. I expected being self-employed, building a company up from the dust, from an idea to a business plan to implementation, not to be easy. But I’ve never felt so refreshed or satisfied. The biggest thing for me would be looking back in three to five years’ time and saying, ’We made a difference.’—-=== Going it alone ===The firm: Evesham-based Cotswold Food Partnership, launched September 2006The brief: a three-pronged business plan, starting with ’artisan’-style part-baked bread and premixes made with ’functional’ ingredients.

About the authorPaul VegasShare the loveHave your say Liverpool boss Klopp delivers huge Alisson boostby Paul Vegas20 days agoSend to a friendShare the loveLiverpool boss Jurgen Klopp says Alisson Becker is ready to return.The Brazilian keeper has been sidelined for seven weeks with a calf tear he suffered as the curtain came up on the new season.But he has trained fully for the last 10 days, and has now returned to squad training, and crucially, Klopp confirmed he has done all the defensive drills with the first team.That is the biggest hint yet that he will make his comeback against Leicester on Saturday, with the manager clearing the way when agreed he could play the keeper with no risks: “It’s different for keepers, yes. Alisson has been training for 10 days, now he is in team training.“If yesterday was his first training session, we would not have to even think about it, but I have to talk. Yesterday he trained with the team for the first time and looked really good.“Ali has been doing all the training already for 10 days and is now team training. He has done important stuff. We could take him out of the general team stuff and do work of much higher intensity than he could do in just a five a side, so he is there.”
The scores of Jamaicans, who journeyed to the birthplace of National Hero, the Rt. Excellent Norman Washington Manley in Roxborough, Manchester yesterday (July 4), to celebrate the 120th anniversary of his birth, are welcoming the opening of a permanent exhibition on his life, now located at the site.Constructed at a cost of just under $11 million and funded by the Tourism Enhancement Fund (TEF), the exhibition details the hero’s life from his birth in the cool, green hills of Manchester, to his educational journey from Belmont to Jamaica College in Kingston.It also captures his family life, career in law, involvement in sports, his role as a Statesman, and his death.Several of Mr. Manley’s athletic and other medals are on display in the exhibition, which is brought to life by numerous photos of him interacting with his family, friends and on the national stage.Minister of Youth and Culture, Hon. Lisa Hanna, praised the exhibition. “We are very, very pleased. We worked very, very hard with the Jamaica National Heritage Trust (JNHT) and the Institute of Jamaica (IOJ) to research and put things in place,” she said.She explained that an inter-ministerial team was formed with the Minister of Tourism and Entertainment to set about restoring the site. She thanked the Jamaica Emergency Employment Programme (JEEP) Secretariat, which managed and monitored the project; the Manchester Parish Council, which implemented it, and the South Coast Resort Board for its role in getting the project done in record time.“We started in March and were able to restore and put the exhibition in so we are very pleased. This is the first phase, we came in under $11 million and people are pleased about the museum here,” she said.Ms. Hanna informed that solar panels will be installed at a later date to provide electricity that will allow the speeches of the National Hero to be included in the exhibition. She also said that there are discussions about having other events on the site, which offers a picturesque setting.Speaker of the House of Representatives and Member of Parliament for South Manchester, Hon. Michael Peart, noted that for over 30 years, he has been making the pilgrimage to Roxborough and finally, he is seeing the beginnings of something great happening at the site. He described the opening of the exhibition as something special.He pointed out that Mr. Manley excelled in every aspect in his life and in celebrating his life, “we need to take stock of ourselves and try to identify with his vision, as some of what he stood for seems to be fading”.Custos of Manchester, the Hon. Sally Porteous, said Mr. Manley would have been pleased to see what has been done to improve his birthplace. She pointed out that the visual images will create a reality for those not around in the days of Manley, to better understand the life and personality of a man, who accomplished so very much.National Security Minister and Member of Parliament for Central Manchester, Hon. Peter Bunting, also welcomed the new exhibition.He said it was a case of “promise made, promise kept” coming out of last year’s celebration, when a collective declaration was made by the Mayor, Councillors and himself that the site would not have been allowed to remain in its then condition for another year.By Andrea Braham, JIS Reporter
