What’s more, these are also among the most affordable for housing, according to an analysis by Redfin.For this study, Redfin analyzed the frequency of five major types of natural disasters—earthquakes, fires, floods, tornadoes, and hurricanes—in the 50 most populous U.S. metro areas. These areas were then ranked according to a metric called the Natural Disaster Hazard Score.Each of the five components was measured on a scale of one to 100, with 100 being the most hazardous metro area for the category. The average of the five components’ frequencies was then taken to get the overall Natural Disaster Hazard Score.“When you buy a home you are paying for more than just the house,” said Daryl Fairweather, Chief Economist at Redfin. “There could be hidden costs associated with natural disasters. If a natural disaster strikes, you may have to pay for damage to your home or for the cost of evacuating your family. And even during times of calm, you may still need to pay for insurance against floods, fire, or earthquakes. Some homes in more hazardous areas might seem more affordable if you are just looking at the sticker price, but they may end up costing more when risks related to natural disasters are factored in.”While Providence, Rhode Island topped this list with a Natural Disaster Hazard Score of nine, it was Detroit, placed second with a score of 10, that topped the list in terms of home affordability. Median home sale prices in the Motor City averaged $125,000Hartford, Connecticut, Las Vegas, and Milwaukee rounded off the top five on this list with Natural Disaster Hazard Scores of 11, 12, and 14 respectively. Indianapolis and Buffalo which ranked sixth and seventh for their overall natural disaster scores were also among the most affordable for housing with median home sale prices at $170,000 and $145,000 respectively.Salt Lake City, Raleigh, North Carolina, and Nashville, Tennessee were also among the 10 least risky cities for natural disasters.With scores of 52 each, Washington, D.C. and Los Angeles were the most at-risk cities for natural disasters according to the study. While residents in the country’s capitals faced risks of hurricanes and flooding, Los Angeles was found to be most at risk from earthquakes and wildfires. These are also the most expensive cities on the list to buy a home with median sale prices of $380,000 and $600,000 respectively.

first_imgDominic Thiem of Austria will play Germany’s Alexander Zverev in the US Open final for their first Grand Slam titles after they won their last-four matches in contrasting styles.Second seed Thiem ousted third-seeded Russian and last year’s runner-up Daniil Medvedev in a closely fought three-setter that was packed with powerful baseline rallies and impressive serving. The 27-year-old Thiem won 6-2, 7-6 (9/7) 7-6 (7/5) in 2hr 56 min inside Arthur Ashe Stadium to reach his fourth Grand Slam final.Earlier, Zverev came from two sets down to complete a remarkable comeback against 20th-seeded Spaniard Pablo Carreno Busta and reach his first tennis major final.The 23-year-old German won an error-strewn, scrappy encounter 2-6, 6-3, 6-4, 6-3 in 3hr 23min, also on the famous Ashe court.It marked the first time in Zverev’s career that he came from two sets behind to win.“I actually looked at the scoreboard when I was down two sets to love,” Zverev said. “I was like, ‘I can’t believe it. I’m playing in a semi-final, I’m supposed to be the favourite and I have no chance, I’m playing that bad.”Zverev made 36 unforced errors in the first two sets compared to just 12 for Carreno Busta as the nerves of the occasion seemed to get the better of him.But Zverev began to cut down on his mistakes in the third set, upping his service game and taking control of rallies with more powerful, accurate groundstrokes.“I started taking the ball more on the rise. I started giving myself the chance to be the one that is aggressive,” said the German, adding: “I’m through to my first Grand Slam final and that’s all that matters.”Carreno Busta said he had lost “a big opportunity” to reach a first Slam final. “I made the semi-finals here. I know that is a good result, is a good performance, but now in this moment it’s tough,” he told reporters.Zverev becomes the first German man to reach the final of a tennis major since Rainer Schuttler at the 2003 Australian Open.This year’s US Open field has been depleted by the absence of Roger Federer and Rafael Nadal.The tournament was blown wide open by the disqualification of world number one and heavy favourite Novak Djokovic in the last 16 for hitting a line judge with the ball.RelatedPosts Thiem claims his first Grand Slam title after thrilling fightback in US Open Djokovic breaks down in tears after hosting Belgrade tennis exhibition Osaka becomes highest-earning female athlete It means Sunday’s final will see a first-time Grand Slam champion for the first time since Croatian Marin Cilic won at Flushing Meadows in 2014.It also means there will be a Grand Slam champion other than Djokovic, Nadal or Federer for the first time since Switzerland’s Stan Wawrinka won the third of his tennis majors at the US Open in 2016.Thiem, ranked third in the world, will be playing his second consecutive Slam final after reaching the last-two at this year’s Australian Open.He also lost in the French Open final in 2018 and 2019.Thiem’s semi-final score slightly flattered him. It was a high-quality affair that saw small shifts in momentum in both players’ direction at different stages.Ultimately the match was decided by Thiem winning points at key moments, with Medvedev squandering a 4-2 lead in the second.He was also on set point while serving at 5-3 in the third set but Thiem won a 38-shot rally to take the game and bring the set back on serve before clinching the tie-break and the match.“It was great tennis from both of us,” said Thiem, whose attention now turns to Zverev.“We have such a great friendship and rivalry. It’s really amazing thing that we will face off against each other in a Slam final,” he added.Tags: Alexander ZverevDominic ThiemGrand SlamUS Open finallast_img read more

first_imgNorman, who has been the buyer for Seldin’s Trinkets, will be focused on managing Jacob’s Music in Shrewsbury, the exclusive dealer for Steinway pianos in the region. A lifelong musician, he is also artist-in-residence there. Prior to establishing Trinkets, Jamey also had a career in real estate here in New Jersey. And after 9/11, while continuing to manage Trinkets, she took on a second role as a trainer for new employees at the Transportation Security Administration (TSA) which monitors airport security. The store is known for its unique selection of Native American jewelry, which Norman became interested in years ago when an illness kept him from touring with his band. He became a reservation trader, buying from Native American craftspeople and selling at flea markets that included Englishtown, Cowtown and Collingswood. “We just wanted a nice, comfortable store that we could have a for a long time,” Jamey said. By Eileen Moon All in all, it’s a long way from the small town of Magnolia, Mississippi, where Jamey learned to ride horses and play sports with her two brothers and two sisters. While the family later moved to Pennsylvania, Jamey opted to return to Mississippi for college and live with her grandmother in Magnolia, while already paying her way. After Jamey and Norman married, the couple moved back here to help the elder Seldins with their business. After Seldin’s father Paul and his stepmother Muriel decided to close their business, Norman and Jamey decided to make a fresh start with their own store. RED BANK – Last Tuesday evening, Seldin’s Trinkets held its annual in-store holiday party for neighbors and friends. From now until the end of December, Seldin’s will be offering a 40 percent discount on all its merchandise. The loose diamonds the store purchased would then be sorted for quality and weight before being made into jewelry. Like his parents, Paul and Helen Seldin, Norman is a classically trained musician for whom jewelry became a “day job” long before he was old enough to reach the countertops in his parents’ business, Seldin’s Jewelers, which opened in 1944, its last location was 44 Broad St. Eventually, Norman ran the store for them, later opening his own jewelry business, Pandora’s Box, with two locations on opposite sides of Broad Street. On the wall behind the jewelry counters at Seldin’s Trinkets are photographs of many of the famous names who have crossed paths with Norman during his musical career or stopped in to buy jewelry from Jamey.center_img Located at the busy intersection of Front and Broad streets, the small store at 2 West Front St. has weathered the ups and downs of doing business in downtown Red Bank for 25 years. “It’s been good and it’s been challenging,” Jamey said. “I just had a great time. I hate to see it all come to an end.” But one of the photos on the wall is a little different: It’s a picture of beloved television cowboy Roy Rogers. “My childhood idol,” Jamey said. Their idea became Seldin’s Trinkets which, along with silver and gold earrings, pendants, rings, cuff links and other traditional keepsakes, features a collection of southwestern jewelry hand-picked by Norman and an array of gift items that include hand-carved wooden boxes, hand-crafted kaleidoscopes, geodes and sculptures. Norman and Jamey Seldin at the annual Seldin’s Trinkets holiday party last Tuesday. Jamey is retiring at the end of December and will close the jewelry store.Photo by Eileen Moon For store owner Jamey Seldin and her husband Norman, the occasion was bittersweet. The store will be closing at the end of December when Jamey Seldin retires. He and Jamey met while he was performing in Panama City Beach, Florida, launching a long-distance romance while Jamey was living in Atlanta. In addition to their mutual love of music, they shared an interest in jewelry. “I was working for a jewelry store,” Jamey said. “I was responsible for bringing all the diamonds in from Antwerp.” “I was milking cows to ride horses,” she said. Once the business closes, she’s looking forward to returning to her roots in Magnolia, Mississippi for a long visit with her 94-year-old mother. The Seldins also plan to sell the display cabinets, which include a handmade display case with wooden dowels that Norman said is more than 50 years old.last_img read more

Nor is Martinez the only exemplar of the fly-ball phenomenon sweeping across the game; from Daniel Murphy to Yonder Alonso, plenty of players have given their careers new life by way of an uppercut swing.But Martinez might be the best of the bunch.Because of his newfound affinity for fly balls, Martinez — who landed in Arizona via a midseason trade — has remade himself into one of the game’s most dangerous hitters. Over the past four seasons, Martinez ranks as the eighth-best batter in all of baseball according to Weighted Runs Created Plus, which measures how many runs a player generates per plate appearance.Early in his career, it would have been a pleasant surprise if Martinez had hit four home runs in a month. But after Martinez modified his approach, Monday’s accomplishment is just the latest signpost along his road to stardom. And with the red-hot Diamondbacks practically assured of making the playoffs, a national audience will have a chance to get acquainted with Martinez’s power stroke this fall.Check out our latest MLB predictions.

Martinez did something rarer than a perfect game. But in accomplishing the feat, Martinez has also become the poster boy of one baseball’s biggest trends: the overnight fly ball-smashing sensation.Martinez began his career as a slap-hitting prospect for the Houston Astros — and to be charitable, he was not successful at it. Over his first three MLB seasons, Martinez had an adjusted on-base plus slugging that was 12 percent worse than average, accumulated negative 1.3 wins above replacement1Taking the average of Baseball-Reference.com’s and FanGraphs’s versions of WAR. and hit for very little power, belting just 24 home runs in 252 games. By 2014, Martinez was struggling so much that Houston released him.“I’m doing everything the coaches tell me,” Martinez told Travis Sawchik of FanGraphs in March about that period of his career. “I’m swinging down on the ball. In BP, I’m hitting low line drives everywhere. In games, it doesn’t play.”But the Detroit Tigers saw potential in Martinez, snapping him up a few days after his release. And Martinez repaid their faith by turning his career around, with the help of a new philosophy at the plate. He became one of baseball’s earliest fly-ball revolutionaries, reducing his ratio of ground balls to fly balls from 0.87 in his first three seasons to 0.64 in the seasons since. And the results were striking. Since 1901,2The first season of MLB’s modern two-league era. only Hall of Fame second baseman Rogers Hornsby increased his isolated power — which is slugging percentage minus batting average — more from his career average through age 25 to his average between the ages of 26 and 29 (Martinez was coming off his age-25 season when the Astros waived him): Jeff Bagwell.170138.4.284169.1+.115 Andy Pafko.114111.7.203132.2+.089 Tony Armas.12773.6.219105.1+.092 Damion Easley.09272.9.190105.5+.098 J.D.
