Gavin Henson knocks down Shane Horgan

first_imgMonday Mar 10, 2008 Gavin Henson knocks down Shane Horgan It looks as though Gavin Henson was lucky to get away with this hit on Shane Horgan. Horgan is a far larger man and yet he was absolutely flattened by Henson, which makes one think that the shoulder was what supplied the majority of the impact. Henson is bigger and stronger than people realise, but the fact that he stayed on his feet, and Horgan went flying, seems to tell the story. The referee shouted ‘Chest chest’, meaning the hit wasn’t high, but Henson made absolutely no effort to wrap his arms around Horgan. It would have been great to see it from another angle, preferably from the side the ref was coming from. Perhaps Henson got the left arm around him, making it look like a legit tackle.Congratulations to Wales for achieving the Triple Crown and beating Ireland at home, capping off a great season so far. This incident was one that was highly requested though.

There was a concern to “hurt” the surrounding landscape as little as possible, a mixture of pine forest and beach. The house, built in Light Steel Framing (LSF) and where concrete only exists in the mat slab, develops on 2 floors, the upper floor being manifestly smaller than the ground floor. The flat roofs of the pergolas, in pine sticks, accentuate the horizontality and create areas of shade adjacent to the house.Save this picture!© João GuimarãesSave this picture!SectionsSave this picture!© João GuimarãesThese factors result in an expansion of the house in the landscape in a smooth and natural way. The existence of large glazed openings that allow direct access to the outside of any compartment associated with the wood that lines exterior walls, seeks a frank dialogue with nature, not only because it is a natural material but also because of the color that is changing, such as the nature.

Trump’s 40 Wall Street sees revenue fall 11%

first_imgShare on FacebookShare on TwitterShare on LinkedinShare via Email Share via Shortlink Occupancy was 87.3 percent as of Oct. 27, and some tenants have been offered concessions to stay on. But that may not be enough to keep certain companies in the building: After the Jan. 6 attack on the U.S. Capitol, the Girl Scouts’ New York City chapter was reportedly exploring its options to break the 15-year lease it signed in 2014.Overall, the Trump Organization’s revenue fell by 38 percent in 2020, with its hotels and golf clubs losing money due to the pandemic. (Mar-a-Lago, the company’s club in Palm Beach, Florida, was the outlier, with a revenue increase of 13 percent.)Trump’s company has more than $300 million in loans that will come due in the next few years, and several businesses have recently cut ties with the business in the wake of the Jan. 6 riot.The building at 40 Wall Street isn’t actually owned by former President Donald Trump; he merely leased it for a term of up to 200 years. The building’s actual owners are a group of obscure, wealthy Germans, a TRD investigation revealed.[Bloomberg News] — Sasha JonesContact Sasha Jones Message* Email Address* Full Name*center_img President Donald Trump and 40 Wall Street (Getty, Wikimedia Commons, iStock/Illustration by Alexis Manrodt for The Real Deal)One of former President Donald Trump’s most historically successful assets — the skyscraper at 40 Wall Street — had a rough year.Revenue at the building hit $27.7 million in the nine months through Sept. 30, according to Bloomberg News, citing loan data for the property. Looking at the annualized data, that would be the equivalent of an 11 percent drop year-over-year.And its debt service coverage ratio has declined, going from 1.67 times in 2019 to 1.24 times in 2020, signaling possible difficulties in having the cash to cover its debt. The $137 million loan on the building, which is sponsored by Donald Trump, has been on a watch list since November due to pandemic-related revenue decline.ADVERTISEMENTRead moreMeet the obscure German magnates who actually own Trump’s most valuable buildingReal estate deal prompted resignation of Trump’s longtime bankerCarl Icahn pulls plug on auction to demolish Trump casino Share via Shortlink Tags40 wall streetCommercial Real EstateDonald Trumplast_img read more

(Credit: Pete Linforth from Pixabay) Hibernia Resources, an acquisition and development company focused on the exploration, growth and production of oil and natural gas assets, and NarrativeWave, a software-as-a-service Internet of Things company, announced a two-year agreement for Hibernia to use NarrativeWave’s software in their oil and gas operations.

‘There will not be a housing crash’, predicts industry figure

first_imgHome » News » COVID-19 news » ‘There will not be a housing crash’, predicts industry figure previous nextCOVID-19 news‘There will not be a housing crash’, predicts industry figureFormer eMoov founder and now Keller Williams franchisee Russell Quirk sticks his reputational neck on the line once again.Nigel Lewis22nd May 20206 Comments10,484 Views Ignore the doom-mongering national media – we won’t see a property price crash, says Russell Quirk who’s taken the market’s temperature and reckons it’s on the road back to health.Speaking during a podcast with Chris Watkin shown exclusively to The Negotiator, the PR guru and Keller Williams franchisee also advised the industry not to accept the word of property experts – even the Bank of England – as they were often wrong.“Our market is fundamentally sound,” says Quirk. “If we’ve weathered the storm of Brexit and come through without prices dropping we’ll weather out what will hopefully be a few short months of disruption from Covid-19.”He points to financial experts such as George Osborne who warned that if we left the EU, the property market would crash and prices would drop by 18% – but prices have since gone up by 8%.“We’re seeing pent-up demand translating into more enquiries, booked viewings are rocketing. We’ll come out of this OK.”Quirk says home-owners have the cheapest money this country has ever seen and can fix a five-year mortgage as low as 2%, while there are now “bundles” of mortgage products and lenders have slashed rates in the last few days.“They anticipate we will come out of it and they want to be the lender of choice,” he explains.Other positive factors include the fact jobless figures haven’t risen as much as they did in every other recession – by an extra 12,000 in April rather than the ONS forecast of an extra 172,000 unemployed. “The furlough scheme is working to keep people in work and although I suspect the total might rise to 7% or 8%, it will then recover.”Quirk adds that the losers could be some of the corporate estate agents with their fixed overheads who are most vulnerable to market challenges, while the more agile independents can be more flexible, getting staff to work from home, or doing more lettings than sales when necessary.Watch the videocovid-19 coronavirus Russell Quirk May 22, 2020Nigel Lewis6 commentsChris Arnold, andsothestorybegan andsothestorybegan 23rd May 2020 at 6:56 pmSomeone’s been drinking the KW Kool-Aid.We’re in for a horrendous year, despite what the press say, or do not say. The winners will be the agents that manage the market, rather than those who try to artificially inflate what isn’t there. Optimism is one thing – delusional, quite another.Log in to ReplyAndrew Stanton, CEO Proptech-PR Real Estate Influencer & Journalist CEO Proptech-PR Real Estate Influencer & Journalist 22nd May 2020 at 2:44 pmI think there will be 618,232 completions in 2020 as recorded by Land Registry as opposed to 1.2M in 2019. 50% drop.As typical residential sale cycle 20-weeks; so most of listings secured second week of July or after will not be a completion in 2020.True, most agents will have a reduced level of staff in some branches on the 1st of June, but that is only six weeks before the July cut off.And the kicker is that on the third week of March, all agents in the UK had stock levels of property at the usual seasonally low level, which without the pandemic would have swelled in size over the next 6-lockdown weeks of the pandemic. Proptech-PR.comLog in to ReplyAndrew Goldthorpe, PropertyMutual.com PropertyMutual.com 22nd May 2020 at 11:54 amI agree with Fraser and am concerned this could be a “dead cat bounce”.The effects of paying for the recovery from a widely predicted deep recession have not been calculated yet, never mind felt. Taxes are going to have to rise, families will face less disposable income and more uncertainty.Factor in a possible Brexit “crash out” and there is little doubt there are painful and uncertain economic times ahead.Log in to ReplyFraser Barron, Tristram’s Sales & Lettings Tristram’s Sales & Lettings 22nd May 2020 at 9:25 amNow I love a bit of positivity but he should probably get the figures correct here.We aren’t even technically speaking in a recession as of yet but we certainly will be come end of June.Everyone is furloughed and unemployment skyrocketed in April even with this blessing of a scheme the government put in place.A few short months of disruption due to covid-19 – yeh sure property market is bouncing back a little now we are all agreeing sales and have good viewing numbers despite the virus. However the economy dictates the housing market and I can’t see the economy in a good state in 12 months time.So yes a little bounce back for now but as unemployment continues to rise, more and more businesses continue to struggle, as even if they can open their costs are increasing due to social distancing and the demand for their services will not be like before.Log in to ReplyMurray Lee, Dreamview Estates Dreamview Estates 22nd May 2020 at 8:55 am100% agree Russell.

Harvard and MIT donate $500,000 to Cambridge

first_img Waste not, want not University community rallies to deal with COVID-19 crisis Law School’s Food Law and Policy Clinic steps up its efforts in time of pandemic Changes to human resources policies to run through May 28 Last week, the city of Cambridge announced an Emergency Order to use the War Memorial site for a temporary emergency shelter.“As we grapple with the enormity of this pandemic, we know that the city must provide an appropriate safe location for our homeless community to take shelter, properly isolate or self-quarantine, and stay safe. We are grateful to Harvard and MIT for recognizing the critical importance of this temporary emergency shelter and providing this instrumental funding,” said Siddiqui and DePasquale.Though hotels, university dormitories, and other housing complexes were discussed and considered, local public health officials pointed to several key variables that made the War Memorial the most fitting for public health needs. Its proximity to health care facilities, quick activation time, physical infrastructure, variety of separable spaces, and secure off street and underground drop-off access were among the most critical factors. Furthermore, the War Memorial’s existing security design is easily augmentable, utilizing a combination of private security for the interior and a dedicated team of Cambridge police officers to provide security for the surrounding community on a 24-hour basis.For more information on the temporary emergency shelter, visit the website. Harvard University and the Massachusetts Institute of Technology (MIT) have made matching donations of $250,000 each to the city of Cambridge to cover costs associated with the creation of a temporary emergency shelter at the War Memorial Recreation Center, Field House, and garage.“Since this outbreak began, residents of Cambridge have benefited from the extraordinary generosity and partnership of the city’s leading business and academic institutions,” said Cambridge Mayor Sumbul Siddiqui and City Manager Louis A. DePasquale in a joint statement announcing the $500,ooo donation.“Harvard is proud to join MIT and Cambridge leaders in supporting the city’s homeless residents and ensuring that they have access to appropriate housing, food, health care and mental health services during this unprecedented public health crisis,” said Harvard President Larry Bacow. “From emergency housing, to PPE, to research and diagnostics, the entire Harvard community is bringing our best to respond to the many and unexpected issues that the novel coronavirus has presented — and we are honored to be working along so many committed partners in this effort in Cambridge, Greater Boston, and around the world.”“In our ongoing effort to help the city of Cambridge respond to this crisis, supplying financial support to create the emergency shelter was a logical next step,” said MIT President L. Rafael Reif. “As soon as we understood the need, we knew we wanted to help — and we are pleased to partner with Harvard on this critical initiative. MIT will also continue its support of Cambridge’s nonprofits, small businesses, and residents as this crisis unfolds. The leadership of Mayor Siddiqui, City Manager DePasquale, and the City Council have been a powerful inspiration. With each passing day, it becomes more obvious that we are all interdependent, bound together as neighbors.” Harvard to help track the virus Related Administrators, professors detail many and varied ways Harvard is trying to help, including offering use of hotel by Cambridge first-responders, health care workers Harvard to guarantee workers’ pay, benefits amid coronavirus disruptions Students from Chan School are helping to boost the volunteer public health workforce last_img read more
