first_imgTuesday 5 April 2011 8:10 pm COMING SOON TO AN OLD PUB NEAR YOU… A BRAND NEW WAITROSE Show Comments ▼ whatsapp WAITROSE wants to grow – but Britain seems strangely bereft of suitable sites for the grocer, which is fighting a bitter convenience store war with its bigger rivals. So a desperate Waitrose has launched a highly unorthodox appeal to landlords to help it out.All sites and all properties will be considered, says the grocer – from pubs to petrol stations – and if those opportunities run dry, the business will turn to developing brownfield sites and arterial and out-of-town locations. It’s radical stuff from the green-logoed retailer.“Sites urgently required for 2012,” says Waitrose, in a property industry magazine advertisement plea – the second within a fortnight – asking leaseholders to make contact with its team of regional estate agents with any suitable locations.“We are looking at everything,” said a spokesperson for Waitrose, who said that while sites have been secured for this year’s further 15 openings – including in Prince Charles’s model village Poundbury in Dorset – the business is “not yet sure where we are with 2012 yet”. It is astonishing that at the height of a High?Street crisis, which is seeing a wave of shops go bust, that a retailer such as Waitrose is being forced to hunt down old pubs to grow. However, Tom Keys-Toyer, partner in the Bristol office of King Sturge, who oversaw the leases for the planned Cardiff and Shrewsbury shops, insists that “it is about making sure every site is profitable and has the right customer base,” he said.So if you are desperate to get a local Waitrose, you know what you have to do. You just need to convince your local publican to sell up to the chattering classes’ favourite retailer. RUNNING MACHINEPASSERS-BY on the South Bank yesterday morning stared in disbelief at the sight of a grown man running a full marathon on a treadmill inside one of the capsules of the London Eye.That high-altitude human running machine was Noel Bresland, a senior consulting manager at Deloitte, who has set himself the task of running 223 marathons over the next ten years in aid of children’s charities Children With Leukaemia and Bliss, after his nephew Ethan died tragically just 223 days into his life.Bresland, 35, is no stranger to adventurous marathons, having completed one in the North Pole in 2004, but his next feat – running the London marathon in 12 days’ time dressed as Little Miss Naughty – is his most outlandish yet. “We hope to break the world record for the fastest book character category, which is currently four hours and four minutes,” he told The Capitalist. “It’s going to be challenging: the costume is very big and it weighs 20kg so I’ll need to get used to that. I started practising today in the pod, actually.” To support Bresland, please visit http://223challenge.com.HIGHLAND FLINGNOT to be outdone, Michael Savage, partner at Killik Capital, has rallied the investment fund’s troops to put together a team of six to take part in the Artemis Quadrathlon near Scotland’s Loch Tay on 9 July.The brokers will swim 1.3km, kayak 11km, cycle 54km and run 25km over seven munros, all within a day – and Savage reckons the quadrathlon will be “the most gruelling physical test any of us have undertaken”.So the other five team members – Tim Shaw, Ben McKeown, Jer O’Mahony, Sam Younger and Gordon Smith – are taking no prisoners with their training schedules, fitting in feats such as the Three Peaks Challenge, the Paris and Edinburgh marathons and the Volcano triathlon in Lanzarote before they undertake the Perthshire race. If they have any energy left, that is.LIFE LESS ORDINARYTHE “adrenaline rush” that decided the course of Risk Capital Partners chairman Luke Johnson’s life came when the Dean of Oxford University threatened to send him down if he carried on having riotous parties in his rooms in Magdalen College.Undaunted, the 18-year-old Johnson came up with the idea of switching the venue for his raucous parties to a local nightclub, where he and his colleague had the bright idea of charging guests on the door, while the club took the bar money.“On the opening night, I arrived 20 minutes early – and there was already a queue,” he told an audience of young entrepreneurs at The Hospital Club. “In that split second, I knew that is what I wanted to do with my life: I wanted to spend my career building companies as an owner.”As good as his word, Johnson (pictured left) famously went on to become the chairman of Superbrands, Giraffe Restaurants and Channel 4, to name but a few of his successful operations.Just don’t remind him of his forays into diet software, restoring classic cars and reselling share registers.“I think it’s fair to say [those projects] were resounding flops,” he said. “But a life without risk-taking is a life too boring to contemplate.” whatsapp by Taboolaby TaboolaSponsored LinksSponsored LinksPromoted LinksPromoted LinksYou May LikeMisterStoryWoman Files For Divorce After Seeing This Photo – Can You See Why?MisterStoryTotal PastThe Ingenious Reason There Are No Mosquitoes At Disney WorldTotal PastMoneyPailShe Was Famous, Now She Works In {State}MoneyPailSerendipity TimesInside Coco Chanel’s Eerily Abandoned Mansion Frozen In TimeSerendipity TimesDrivepedia20 Of The Most Underrated Vintage CarsDrivepediamoneycougar.comThis Proves The Osmonds Weren’t So Innocentmoneycougar.comZen HeraldThe Truth About Why ’40s Actor John Wayne Didn’t Serve In WWII Has Come To LightZen HeraldBetterBeDrones Capture Images No One Was Suppose to SeeBetterBeElite HeraldExperts Discover Girl Born From Two Different SpeciesElite Heraldcenter_img KCS-content Share More From Our Partners Biden received funds from top Russia lobbyist before Nord Stream 2 giveawaynypost.comRussell Wilson, AOC among many voicing support for Naomi Osakacbsnews.com980-foot skyscraper sways in China, prompting panic and evacuationsnypost.comBrave 7-Year-old Boy Swims an Hour to Rescue His Dad and Little Sistergoodnewsnetwork.orgA ProPublica investigation has caused outrage in the U.S. this weekvaluewalk.comAstounding Fossil Discovery in California After Man Looks Closelygoodnewsnetwork.orgFlorida woman allegedly crashes children’s birthday party, rapes teennypost.comPolice Capture Elusive Tiger Poacher After 20 Years of Pursuing the Huntergoodnewsnetwork.orgNative American Tribe Gets Back Sacred Island Taken 160 Years Agogoodnewsnetwork.orgMark Eaton, former NBA All-Star, dead at 64nypost.comI blew off Adam Sandler 22 years ago — and it’s my biggest regretnypost.comMatt Gaetz swindled by ‘malicious actors’ in $155K boat sale boondogglenypost.com‘Neighbor from hell’ faces new charges after scaring off home buyersnypost.comKiller drone ‘hunted down a human target’ without being told tonypost.comSupermodel Anne Vyalitsyna claims income drop, pushes for child supportnypost.comFeds seized 18 devices from Rudy Giuliani and his employees in April raidnypost.comUK teen died on school trip after teachers allegedly refused her pleasnypost.comInside Ashton Kutcher and Mila Kunis’ not-so-average farmhouse estatenypost.com Tags: NULLlast_img read more

The race for the Apopka City Commission: The hopes for Apopka…

first_img The Anatomy of Fear From staff reportsFive days and counting.The Apopka City Commission Seat #2 election is less than a week away, and while a record number of voters have already cast ballots, many are still researching the candidates or undecided.On Friday, October 16th, The Apopka Voice sent eight questions to all four candidates, inviting them to respond within a week if they wanted to participate. Three candidates (Yesenia Baron, Nick Nesta, and Diane Velazquez) returned our survey, while one (Gene Knight) did not. The questions included topics such as priorities, challenges, and hopes for Apopka, economic development, and the potential annexation of South Apopka.In this series, we are publishing the responses to those eight questions by featuring two per day. In part three, we asked the candidates what their biggest hope for Apopka was, and how they would make a decision on a contentious issue where there are vastly opposing views. And in these two questions, we found the biggest differences among them.HopeWhat is your number one hope for Apopka that you would love to make a reality if elected, and how are you best suited to help move it forward?Yesenia “Jesi” BaronYesenia Baron: Clean and beautify the West Orange Trail in South Apopka“The most tangible hope I have for Apopka is to focus on the cleaning and beautification of the West Orange Trail in South Apopka. Other community leaders and I have identified this area as a visual and symbolic connection between South Apopka and Apopka and the surrounding municipalities. I am best suited to help move this forward as I am a facilitator. This will take a collaborated effort between the community, local organizations, the City, and County. My goal is to build relationships and communication, opening doors to perspective and understanding.”Nick NestaNick Nesta: Reopen Errol Estate and Rock Springs Ridge golf courses“To have both Errol Estate and Rock Springs Ridge open their golf courses back up. It is a massive undertaking to help the residents in both communities deal with their specific situations surrounding their specific neighborhoods. As a real estate broker for over a decade, I have the experience and education to advocate for the residents in these communities to have what they want most: the golf courses to open again. Rock Springs Ridge has been experiencing this issue for over 10 years and no City Council member now or in the past has taken on the issue to help the residents. This is why we must have someone in Seat 2 of the City Council that understands day one what is needed for each community and is willing to stand up for the residents. Beyond the needs of those communities’ residents, reopening the golf courses would be a major economic boost for the entire City of Apopka. We can no longer afford to remain stagnant on this pressing issue.”Diane VelazquezDiane Velazquez: Keep schools open, and COVID-19 testing for Apopka“With 13 months left in this term, as we continue to live with the restrictions of COVID-19, my hope for Apopka is to see our schools remain open and have more students return to in-class learning. I will work with the County to get COVID-19 testing available here in Apopka. I would like to have the City host local family events during the upcoming holidays while continuing to encourage wearing masks and social distancing.”ContentionAs a representative for all Apopka residents, how would you make a decision on a contentious issue where there are vastly opposing views?Diane VelazquezVelazquez: Listen, learn the facts, research the subject and address concerns while keeping safety and stability in mind“As the commissioner representing the residents of Apopka, I will listen to their concerns and learn the facts; do the research to help me arrive at a decision or solution to address their concerns, keeping in mind the safety and stability of the entire community.” Save my name, email, and website in this browser for the next time I comment.

Please enter your email address here Free webinar for job seekers on best interview answers, hosted by Goodwill June 11 Yesenia “Jesi” BaronBaron: Keep citizens informed, be proactive in listening, and make the decision that benefits Apopka as a whole community“There will always be opposing views on issues. We need to keep our citizens informed of upcoming discussions and plans. If allowed, I plan to write a small column in our Apopka Chief, Apopka Voice, and other media outlets within our City that would help disseminate information on current forums, discussions, city planning meetings, and events. I will also make myself available to all our citizens to include our African-American, Black, and Hispanic Community by hosting small meet and greets at the various small businesses within our City. If our citizens are informed, our citizens are empowered. Everyone has a perspective to bring on issues. As a commissioner, it is our job to understand a citizen’s perspective and to grasp their circumstances that could be driving their views. We should be able to be proactive in our listening and not be reactive. Once the perspective and understanding have been heard from both sides, the decision should be based on what will benefit Apopka, positively impacting the City as a whole community.”Nick NestaNesta: Put issues through a filter, listen to their needs, problem-solve and come up with dynamic solutions“There are many issues that Apopka is currently dealing with that are contentious. As an elected official, I would put all issues through many filters, including how it affects all my constituents’ living standards, how would it fiscally affect the City and residents, and how would this affect our community long term. As a real estate broker for 10+ years, Apopka’s citizens have trusted me with their biggest assets and hard-earned dollars. This is a duty I do not take lightly; it is one that has taught me how to really listen to the needs of those I serve, problem-solve, and come up with dynamic solutions to satisfy all. Should I be elected, I will continue to listen to Apopka’s residents and work in tandem to provide meaningful solutions.”In part four, the final part of the series published tomorrow, the candidates answer the last two questions and make their closing arguments as to why they are the best candidate.How much of the budget would you be willing to invest in developing the City of Apopka (businesses, infrastructure, amenities, environment etc) in order to compete with other nearby, fast-growing municipalities? What would you like to say to voters who have not decided who they will vote for yet?center_img Support conservation and fish with NEW Florida specialty license plate Please enter your name here Please enter your comment!

Up until recently it was rather uncommon in the Netherlands for non-professionals to develop private housing projects in an inner city context. In times of crisis however, the present Dutch government strives to put an end to this tradition by stimulating private investments in urban agglomerations. According to a Charta of the Ministry of Housing and Spatial Planning, one third of all new housing developments in the Netherlands must be developed by private clients.

Located in Giljik-ri, Ganghwa Island, Ger House is a weekend house for client who does business in Incheon. The house site is an area where fields are cleared and developed as residential areas, and is located at the highest point on gentle slopes. The client wanted to build it as small as a national life house of less than 100 square meters.Save this picture!© Namgoong SunSave this picture!PlansAll rooms and living rooms are on the south side, except for the red clay Korean dry sauna that enters from the outside. Each room is placed on the left and right sides of the living room and kitchen. At the beginning of the plan, the architect wanted to set the first floor at 100 and the second floor at an attic not included in the total floor area to make up for the insufficient area, but due to regulations, he changed his plan to a small two-story house instead of an attic. In these small houses, the shape of the roof was a very important factor.Save this picture!© Namgoong SunThe roof of Ger house is not a roof that is tilted in a particular direction like a simple gable roof. The four-sided walls are tilted to the center to emphasize the living room, which is the center of the space, and a skylight is installed there to make the central space even brighter through natural lighting. The living room, which overlooks the south garden, where the client has carefully cultivated, creates a cozy atmosphere with a high level of openness and light coming through the skylight.

Comentario de Mumia Abu-Jamal — Venezuela y la legitimidad presidencial

first_imgEl siguiente comentario, ligeramente editado, fue escrito por el preso político Mumia Abu-Jamal y publicado en Prison Radio.Ahora el presidente de los Estados Unidos (Donald Trump) ha decidido que determinará quién es y quién no es el líder legítimo de un país extranjero.Dijo que Nicolás Maduro, de Venezuela, era ilegítimo y apoyó al opositor de Maduro para el liderazgo nacional del país.¿Qué pasaría si Maduro declarara que Trump, quien recibió unos 3 millones de votos menos que su oponente, Hillary Clinton, era ilegítimo?¿Quién escucharía?En realidad, Trump se sienta en la Casa Blanca solo por el artefacto de la era de la esclavitud conocido como el Colegio Electoral, una institución diseñada para negar la democracia a millones de africanos y asegurar la hegemonía del sur.¿No es el supuesto Colegio Electoral fundamentalmente ilegítimo? ¡El Colegio Electoral debería ser abolido de inmediato!En una edición del 9 de septiembre de 2018 del New York Times, se reportó que funcionarios de Trump se comunicaron con oficiales militares venezolanos para apoyar un golpe de estado contra el presidente Maduro.Durante gran parte de los siglos XIX y XX, los EUA decidieron quién debería gobernar en América Latina, basándose en disparates como la Doctrina Monroe, un pretexto para el imperialismo estadounidense.No nos equivoquemos, Monroe está de vuelta.¡Qué lástima!FacebookTwitterWhatsAppEmailPrintMoreShare thisFacebookTwitterWhatsAppEmailPrintMoreShare thislast_img read more

RSF calls for the release of Bangladeshi journalist Rozina Islam, unfairly accused of espionage

first_img News February 26, 2021 Find out more BangladeshAsia – Pacific Condemning abusesProtecting journalists CorruptionImprisonedJudicial harassment Bangladeshi reporter fatally shot by ruling party activists Organisation RSF_en Her husband, Monirul Islam Mithu, told RSF that she had gone to the health ministry to interview an employee. She was immediately locked in a room by a police officer and ministry staff who seized her bag and cell phone, giving them ample opportunity to plant false evidence. Bangladesh: Rohingya photographer charged after covering Rohingya refugee transfer Investigative journalist Rozina Islam was detained earlier this week during a visit to the Bangladeshi health ministry, after publishing a series of reports on corruption in the ministry. She was subsequently charged under the colonial-era Official Secrets Act. Reporters Without Borders (RSF) urges the Bangladeshi government to restore its credibility by ordering her immediate release. Follow the news on Bangladesh “Illegal detention, torture, intimidation, fabrication of evidence … the way the police and judicial authorities have handled this case brings shame on the rule of law in Bangladesh. We call on Interior Minister Asaduzzaman Khan Kamal to order her immediate and unconditional release and for the absurd charges against her to be dropped. His government’s credibility is at stake.” January 5, 2021 Find out more “They have harassed her physically,” Mithu said. “They pushed her down and tried to strangle her. While snatching her bag, they literally twisted her arm. Her skin got scarred and she also suffered bruises”. Torture and illegal detention She was illegally held for five hours in the office of Saiful Islam Bhuiyan, an official on the staff of Health Services Secretary Lokman Hossain Miah for five hours. The journalist is alleged to have violated articles 3 and 5 of the Official Secrets Act, legislation dating from the era of British rule that calls for capital punishment in cases of espionage. She is also accused under articles 379 and 411 of the penal code of “putting a person in fear of injury in order to commit extortion” and concealing stolen documents, which could incur up to 14 years’ imprisonment. Newscenter_img Bangladesh is ranked 152nd out of 180 countries in the 2021 World Press Freedom Index compiled by RSF.    February 22, 2021 Find out more Rozina Islam is seen inside a prison van in Dhaka on May 18, 2021, a day after being arrested on accusation of stealing documents and taking images by the health ministry (photo: Munir Uz Zaman / AFP). May 19, 2021 RSF calls for the release of Bangladeshi journalist Rozina Islam, unfairly accused of espionage Receive email alerts The managing editor of Prothom Alo, Sajjad Sharif, is in no doubt that Islam was harassed by health ministry staff and handed over to the police in retaliation for the stories she published in the newspaper on serious corruption and mismanagement in the health sector linked to the coronavirus crisis. Islam, a reporter for the newspaper Prothom Alo, the country’s main Bengali-language daily, was arrested on Monday this week and later transferred to Shahbagh police station in Dhaka. According to the charges, of which RSF has seen a copy, she was accused of stealing “important official documents” from a government office and photographing confidential data. She could face the death penalty. She was transferred to the police station about 8 p.m. and charged at 11:45 p.m. She is due to attend a bail hearing tomorrow.
