MakeAWish And ESPN Team Up To Showcase LifeChanging Wishes

first_imgMore than 60 life-changing wishes and 13 years later, Make-A-Wish and ESPN announce an all-star lineup of four new, inspirational sports stories as part of the annual “My Wish” series.The summertime series presented by Dove Men+Care on SportsCenter focuses on the incredible joy and strength that children with critical illnesses receive from a wish-come-true. Starting the evening of Sunday, July 15 and continuing Monday, July 16, Tuesday, July 17, and Thursday, July 19, sports fans can catch different stories of Make-A-Wish kids meeting their sports heroes. The series will come to a conclusion on Friday, July 20 with a compilation feature highlighting the full roster of this year’s wishes.From end zones and three-point lines to outfields and race tracks, ESPN cameras have been there from the initial surprise when wish kids find out their wish will come true until they meet the athletes they idolize the most. Throughout the years, the series has featured elite athletes of all kinds, including global superstars, world champions, gold medalists, hall of famers and MVPs. This year’s participants are equally as impressive with involvement from golf champion Jordan Spieth; 27-time World Series winning team, The New York Yankees; NFL all-time great Larry Fitzgerald; and NBA all-star Jimmy Butler.For the 13th consecutive year, Emmy-award winning reporter Chris Connelly brings these stories to life through eye-opening, first-hand interviews and best-in-class storytelling.“Every year, we witness how sick kids internalize the toughness and determination that professional athletes display on a nightly basis,” said Connelly. “When wish kids meet their favorite athletes and teams, they are empowered to stay strong and positive no matter what health obstacles come their way.”“Wishes have proven physical and emotional benefits that can give children with critical illnesses a higher chance of survival,” said David Williams, president and CEO of Make-A-Wish America. “That’s because when a wish is granted, a child replaces fear with confidence, sadness with joy and anxiety with hope. The ‘My Wish’ series invites SportsCenter viewers to witness this power and see as the lives of wish kids, their families and their favorite athletes change forever.”Make-A-Wish extends its thanks to Disney and ESPN for their support of the “My Wish” series as part of their Team of Heroes initiative centered around improving the patient and family experience in children’s hospitals. Beyond assisting with this year’s series, Disney – which owns ESPN – has been a steadfast friend of Make-A-Wish for 38 years and has helped the organization grant more than 120,000 Disney-related wishes, including the first official wish in 1980.For more information about Make-A-Wish and the ESPN “My Wish” series, visit read more

Ban welcomes agreement to resolve political crisis in Madagascar

Mr. Ban “congratulates the four leaders – Andry Rajoelina, Marc Ravalomanana, Didier Ratsiraka and Albert Zafy – for committing to a peaceful transition under a government of national unity,” according to a statement issued by his spokesperson.The statement follows the deal reached yesterday during talks in Maputo, Mozambique, that were mediated by that country’s former president Joaquim Chissano and a joint team comprising the United Nations, the African Union (AU), the Southern African Development Community (SADC) and the International Organization of the Francophonie.Mr. Ban urged the leaders in the Indian Ocean country to agree quickly on the composition of the government of national unity “and on the establishment of the institutions of the transition leading to credible elections and the restoration of democracy and the rule of law.”The Secretary-General thanked Mr. Chissano and the other mediators for their efforts and joined them in calling on “all political actors in Madagascar to build on the Maputo consensus and to work for the prompt implementation of the agreements.”Since the start of the year Madagascar has been engulfed by political tensions, which have led to widespread violence and killings and numerous politically motivated arrests. Mr. Ravalomanana resigned as president in early March amid a dispute with Mr. Rajoelina, the mayor of the capital, Antananarivo, and now the leader of the country. 10 August 2009Secretary-General Ban Ki-moon today welcomed the power-sharing agreement reached in Madagascar and urged all sides to work together to ensure that a new government of national unity is quickly installed and a process leading to credible elections can be established. read more

Thai law on defaming monarchy has chilling effect on free expression –

In Geneva, Ravina Shamdasani, spokesperson for the UN High Commissioner for Human Rights (OHCHR), said that since the 22 May coup, at least 13 new lèse majesté cases have been opened for investigation while others where charges had previously not been laid, have been revived. “Such measures are adding to the larger pattern of increasing restrictions on freedom of expression in Thailand,” she warned, adding that just last week, two university students were arrested for participating in a play in October 2013 that depicted a fictional monarch who was manipulated by his advisor. The arrests followed a number of convictions and harsh sentences in lèse majesté cases, including that of Plutnarin Thanaboriboonsuk, who was also charged under the Computer Crime Act in relation to messages he posted on Facebook. He was sentenced on 31 July to 15 years in prison. That sentence came less than two months after charges were laid on 16 June, even though the investigation had remained pending for more than two years. In another case, on 14 August, Yuthasak Kangwanwongsakul, a taxi driver, was sentenced to two years and six months in jail under the lèse majesté laws for a conversation he had with a passenger. “We are concerned that more charges may be filed and that more harsh sentences may be issued in the coming weeks,” said Shamdasani. In 2013, High Commissioner for Human Rights Navi Pillay indicated her support for amendments of Thailand’s lèse majesté law under its section 112 of the Criminal Code to address concerns related to the implementation of the law. In 2011, the UN Special Rapporteur on the promotion and protection of the right to freedom of expression and opinion also urged the amendment, stating that section 112 was too vague and prescribes long maximum sentences that are contrary to permissible restrictions on freedom of expression under the International Covenant on Civil and Political Rights (ICCPR), which Thailand has ratified. “We reiterate our call to the military administration to ensure its compliance with Thailand’s obligations under international human rights law, especially the ICCPR,” Shamdasani said. “The threat of the use of the lèse majesté laws adds to the chilling effects on freedom of expression observed in Thailand after the coup, and risks curbing critical debate on issues of public interest.” read more

Interesting start in Baltic Handball League

Baltic Handball League The 2015/16 season of Baltic Handball League is surely not going to be boring, so much excitement, surprises and even shocks already was seen during the opening weekend. Who would have believed that both last season’s BHL and BCL champions will suffer defeat in their opening matches? Or that Belarussian clubs manage to take just one win out of six matches? Or that four matches end with one team’s minimal advantage with goals coming in the final seconds?Arguably the biggest shock of the weekend came in the opening match, where title-holder SKA Minsk met HC Kehra/Horizon Pulp&Paper. The match was played in Kehra, although it was considered as “home match” for the Belarussians. It was also the first game as a head coach in BHL for Kehra’s new boss Indrek Lillsoo and what a great debut he had…Kehra’s first ever win over SKASKA started strongly, but Kehra played well and taking the lead after seven minutes, the Estonian side never let SKA ahead again. Half-time was 18-17 for Kehra and it was tight until 46th minute, then Lillsoo’s boys made a strong 7-2 finish and eventually enjoyed a comfortable 35-28 win. All eight previous meetings of the two clubs in BHL had ended in SKA’s favour! Uku-Tanel Laast was the best scorer with 10 goals, while Uladzislau Kulesh scored 7 for SKA.“I knew that BHL can produce unexpected results, but this was surprising even for me,” smiled happy Lillsoo after the game. “Our team is in good shape, we played well and without pressure, as the opponent is the title-defender and maybe all this surprised SKA. The league seems to consist quite equal teams and none can expect easy wins here.”Despite the great performance on Saturday, Kehra did not manage to continue on winning streak and travelling to Lithuania the day later, lost 24-33 to Dragunas Klaipeda (Igor Kopishinskiy 9 – Kaupo Liiva  5). “Perhaps there was a little bit of content after the success over SKA,” said Lillsoo. “Dragunas had huge will to win and they were very aggressive. Three defeats against Estonian clubs in short period of time had built up a hunger for revenge and the whole atmosphere was heated.”Dragunas surprised by ViljandiOpposite to HC Kehra, the other Estonian club Viljandi HC started in Klaipeda on Saturday and caused a surprise of their own. Last year both clubs played in BCL and Dragunas won both matches, this time Viljandi took a very important away win by 27-25, having lost the first half 13-15. Estonian internationals Kristo Voika and Kristo Järve, as well as Dragunas’ best, Karolis Stropus all recorded 6 goals.“We were expecting to gain one win from this weekend, but did not expect to lose against Viljandi,” admits Dragunas’ head coach Arturas Juškenas. “I’m not happy with the result, but Viljandi was the better and more stable team here. And we had huge problems with Kristo Järve. He’s soon 38 and still going strong – we know everything he does and still could not stop him.”The day later Viljandi was back home, met with SKA, but was no match for the defending champions. The game was not one-sided, but Viljandi never got ahead and curiously lost both halfs with the same result 11-14, making the final score 28-22 for SKA. Mikita Vailupau was SKA’s best with 8 goals. Voika, Ott Varik and Robert Lõpp all scored 5 for the hosts.Viljandi HC’s head coach Marko Koks had mixed, but mostly positive feelings after the weekend: “I’m never happy with a defeat, but we did prove to ourselves, we can play with the strongest teams in the league. I think we had a little bit too much respect for SKA due to their name and titles. We had quite a lot of chances, which we just failed to use and of course – to miss four penalty throws is never a good sign either.”In the one remaining Group A match BHL’s newcomer HK Ogre/Miandum took a little surprisingly a win over Celtnieks Riga 34-30, despite having lost the the first half 16-18 and trailing 29-30 with just eight minutes to go. Incredible 5-0 finish helped Ogre/Miandum to a win in their debut. Artis Kurmens recorded the best score of the whole opening BHL weekend with 14 goals. Arvis Čikuts scored 8 for Celtnieks.Cocks decided both games in last secondsIt was in Group B, where incredibly tight matches were played – four out of six games ended with just one-goal difference for the winners! Most expected clash was arguably the two-match stand-off in Põlva, where last season’s second and third teams Serviti and Cocks played. On both days Cocks came out on top, but with minimal advantage and with two different scenarios.On Saturday, Cocks was basically leading the whole time, occasionally with 4-5 goals, until suddenly in the 53rd minute, Serviti took the lead for the first – and only – time by 25-24. The end of the match belonged to Finns and it was Nico Rönnberg who recorded the winning goal in the last seconds to make it 28-27.Ukrainian Andriy Ternovyi scored 9 goals for Serviti and Teemu Tamminen hit 7 for the winners. Cocks’ head coach Kaj Kekki was obviously satisfied: “In my four years in charge of the club, I believe we only had one draw in Põlva’s home and lost all the other matches. And this time we grabbed the win in final seconds!”It was a different story on Sunday, this time Serviti seemed to slip away from last season’s runner-up. It was a tight first half before Estonian champion scored four unanswered goals at the end and took a 15-13 lead. Cocks fought back, but then a seven-minute spell midway through the second half, which ended 8-1 for Serviti – and saw Ardo Puna score 4 goals – seemed to have ended the game.But Finnish champions did not think that way – with 13 minutes to go, they were 19-27 behind, but came out as 29-28 winners! In that incredible spell Roni Syrjälä scored all of his 4 goals of the match and Gheorghe Safronii added 3 – including the winner with 14 seconds to go. It was a very good overall team performance, as 10 of Cocks’ players scored in the game. Puna was Serviti’s best with 10 goals.“I decided to change three players and play a defensive tactic we have never done in BHL before,” explained Kekki his winning formula. “We man-marked two of Serviti’s players and the hosts seemed to froze for a moment. Our throws started to go in and of course Roni [Syrjälä], who did not play the day before, was a true ace we found for these minutes.”Tenax and Granitas start with two victoriesUnlike in Group A, three teams in Group B ended the weekend with two wins and the rest have no points in the table. Tenax Dobele took another one-goal win of the weekend on Saturday, beating HC Meshkov Brest by 33-32 (Toms Lielais 7 – Artsiom Kulak 12). Day later, the Latvian champions had an easier day, smashing the other Belarus team of the group, HC Vityaz Minsk by 37-19 (Oskars Arajs 7 – Andrei Satsiuk 5).Tenax manager Ivars Zarinš was very happy with the start. “We have to win home matches if we want to achieve something and as minimum, we want to qualify to the quarter-finals,” Zarinš said. “Saturday was a very tight match, Brest took a 4-goal lead by half-time, but we had a good fight-back. In the end I guess we just had a little bit more luck, as Toms Lielais scored our winning goal with just five seconds remaining.”Granitas-Gaja-Karys Kaunas started their season with a 36-24 win over Vityaz (Mindaugas Urbonas 11 – Siarhei Radziukou 11) and then caused another little surprise on Sunday, as they beat HC Meshkov by 33-32 (Urbonas and Vaidas Drevinskas 6 – Kulak 8). Artsiom Kulak also leads the scoring competition of the BHL after the opening weekend with 20 goals.Tenax, Cocks and Granitas lead the Group B with 4 points each, while in Group A five teams have two points – SKA, Viljandi, Kehra, Ogre/Miandum and Dragunas. Celtnieks is the only team without points, but the two Latvian teams have only played one game. The BHL season continues on 14th and 15th November with another ten matches.Source: Baltic Handball League ← Previous Story POLAND 2016: EHF announce 12 pairs of referees Next Story → LNH: Furious PSG win in Chartres read more

Commissioner Semeta sees steps on fighting tax evasion in Greece EU

first_imgBRUSSELS – Commmissioner Algirdas Semeta has backed Greece’s efforts to reform its tax system, saying that the country could earn the equivalent of 5 percent of GDP in revenues if it clamps down on evaders. In an interview with Kathimerini, Semata said that the Commission was taking steps to tackle tax evasion and avoidance throughout the EU as it costs governments a total of 1 trillion euros.Let me start with the latest package of recommendations that the Commission issued, regarding tax evasion and tax avoidance. Some would argue that it does not go far enough into addressing the problem and that the Commission lacks “the teeth” to force member-states into adopting stricter rules regarding tax evasion. How do you respond to this criticism? What are the next concrete, binding, steps you propose to combat tax evasion? The plan that the Commission presented could deal a serious blow to tax evasion and avoidance in Europe. I put forward more than 30 measures to improve transparency and information exchange, close loopholes that are exploited by tax avoiders, clamp down on tax havens that harbour evaders, and create a tougher, more unified EU stance in tackling this serious problem. Our Action Plan certainly has «teeth». But if it is to bite, Member States must commit to it and implement it. I can think of no good reason why they shouldn’t do this. Several times EU leaders called for progress in addressing these problems and they asked the Commission to formulate a common way forward. Given the huge amounts of money that are being lost to tax evasion, at a time that we can ill afford it, there is a clear sense of urgency that something needs to be done. The advantage of recommendations is that they do not have to go through the legislative procedure of hard law, which can take a long time. Progress in implementing them can be quick, if the political will is there. And Member States can put peer pressure on each other to keep up the pace, which is a technique we’ve seen used to good effect before in the EU. For its part, the Commission will be highly active too. There is a series of new initiatives that we will be working on – from an EU Tax Identification Number to a Taxpayers’ Code. In terms of hard law, we will intend to strengthen the anti-abuse provisions in EU corporate tax law, and revise the Parent-Subsidiary Directive. And we will also be setting up a new Platform on Tax Good Governance, to monitor the implementation of our recommendations on tax havens and aggressive tax planning. We will have no qualms about making our voice heard if we feel that any Member State is dragging its feet, or that collectively there is not enough momentum given to fighting these problems. The package urges member-states to act against tax havens. However, according to some definitions, the tax regime in some member states, like Luxembourg or Cyprus, especially towards corporations is close enough to the definition of a tax haven. Does the Commission have any reservations on the tax regime of its member states and how do you define a tax haven? The first thing to understand is that the good governance standards we suggest applying to third countries are no higher than the minimum standards already applied by every EU Member State. Even though our criteria for determining tax havens would be tougher than current international criteria, they are no stricter than what we demand of ourselves within the EU. These criteria would be based first on the OECD principles of transparency and information exchange. Added to this, we would look at whether the principles of our Code of Conduct on Business Taxation are respected, so as to ensure fair tax competition. I believe this would be a fair basis for assessing whether or not a country is a tax haven or not. Within the EU, despite our high standards, I don’t claim that everything is perfect. We clearly need more coordination to prevent one national regime from undermining another, and to address loopholes and mismatches which are exploited by tax evaders. That is precisely what the Action Plan I presented sets out. Moreover, I have called on Member States to use tools like the Code of Conduct with far greater ambition. This Code is meant as a tool for Member States to assess each other’s tax regimes, and demand that harmful ones be removed. It can be highly effective in ensuring fair tax competition – but only if Member States use it to its full potential. Does the Commission have an estimate on how much do tax evasion, tax avoidance, and intra-European money laundering cost to the European taxpayers each year? Around €1 trillion is estimated to be lost every year in the EU due to tax evasion and avoidance. That is that is about 50 times the size of the Greek deficit, twice the size of the EU’s permanent bailout fund (ESM) and equates to around €2000 for every citizen in Europe. In this context, you can see the urgency to put up a proper fight against this problem, and to do it as a Union. If we could recapture even a portion of the taxes that are evaded in Europe, it could really help accelerate our economic recovery. Tax evasion is a serious problem in Greece. Does the Commission have an estimate on the extent of the revenues lost in Greece due to this problem? The very nature of tax evasion makes it difficult to put a precise figure on it, and for Greece in particular, we see all sorts of estimates floating around. What this proves is that more transparency, greater information exchange and a well-functioning administration are a prerequisite to both identify the extent of the problem, and then effectively address it. The OECD has said that if Greece were to collect its VAT, social security contributions and corporate taxes with even an average level of efficiency, tax revenues could rise by nearly 5% of GDP. Meanwhile, the Commission and IMF found, through their technical assistance to Greece, that €53 billion still remains in uncollected taxes, of which 15-20% is potentially collectable. We have provided important advice on how this can be done, and I hope Greece will follow up on this with full vigour. Why do you think that tax evasion is so widespread in member-states like Greece? Has the Commission proposed specific measures to Athens, in order to solve the problem? And do you provide any technical assistance to Greece in this regard? I could point to a few major issues which contribute to the scale of tax evasion, and which must be addressed urgently by the Greek authorities. First, the Greek tax system as a whole needs to be fundamentally reformed. In the recent Annual Growth Survey, the Commission outlined to all Member States the need for fairness and efficiency in their tax systems. What does this mean in practice? It means that rules must be simple and consistent, easy to comply with and easy to enforce. It means that mechanisms must be there to detect and punish tax evaders and fraudsters, so that everyone pays what they owe. And it means that, while revenue collection must be the primary goal of taxation, the burden must be shared equitably and it must support wider social objectives. Second, the Greek administration simply doesn’t work as it should. The tax collection system needs to be modernised, the tax collectors and inspectors must be well-trained and independent, and the rules must be clear and enforceable. Greece must do more to facilitate tax compliance, but must not only rely on compliance being voluntary. The Commission has actively contributed to the technical assistance to Greece in reforming its tax administration. Areas chosen for primary focus so far have included audits on large taxpayers and wealthy individuals, the collection of large tax debts, the establishment of an automated debt collection reminder system and the implementation of a debt collection call centre. Finally, corruption is still widespread in Greece, feeding into the loss of public revenue. Greece was advised to draw up an anti-corruption Action Plan to tackle this problem, and in the forthcoming Memorandum of Understanding, further measures that can be taken to fight corruption will be set out. Again, the Commission stands ready to contribute to the technical assistance to Greece in fighting corruption, as we do appreciate that this problem is not an easy one to eradicate alone. The Commission is in favour of the Financial Transactions Tax. But critics suggest that this measure will hurt the financial Centres of continental Europe, forcing companies to “seek refuge” at the City of London and elsewhere. How do you respond to this criticism? There are strong safety nets in the FTT which the Commission originally proposed, precisely to minimize the risk of financial activity relocating. The most significant is the «residence principle» that underlies the application of the tax. This means that if either party to a transaction, or a financial institution involved in the transaction, has a link to the territory applying the FTT, then the transaction will be taxed, regardless of where it takes place. So if a Greek bank buys shares from an American bank, in Tokyo, the tax would be due in Greece. In practice, if financial actors really wanted to avoid the tax, they would have to abandon business in the Member States applying the FTT, as well as all clients from those countries. The FTT will be at the rate of 0.1% on shares and bonds, 0.01% on derivatives, and will represent a very small part of overall transaction costs in most cases. So I find the financial sector’s scare-mongering on this issue to be very exaggerated. Which are the next steps with regard to the FTT? When do you expect the measure to start being implemented, and how will the money be used? As you are no doubt aware, Greece and 10 other Member States asked to move ahead with a harmonised FTT under enhanced cooperation, when unanimous agreement amongst the 27 Member States wasn’t possible. There are still considerable benefits in a harmonised FTT applied by these 11 Member States, which together represent over 60% of EU GDP. It would deliver new revenues to the participating countries, and it will be up to each of them to decide how to best use this. Moreover, the FTT is an excellent contributor to fair taxation. Let’s not forget that €4.6 trillion was committed to bailing out the financial sector due to the crisis, yet our analysis shows that this sector is largely under-taxed compared to others. When the Commission received the requests to move ahead from the 11 Member States, it checked to ensure that this would be in line with all the conditions under the Treaties.We then tabled a proposal to authorise enhanced cooperation, which the European Parliament voted in favour of just [this/last] week. How quickly we proceed now is entirely in the hands of the Council. If Member States vote to allow enhanced cooperation, the Commission can propose very quickly the details of the FTT for the 11 Member States to negotiate and agree. The design of the tax should be very similar to what we had already proposed for the 27 Member States, given that this is what was asked for. There is no good reason that the FTT could not be agreed next year – but it really depends on the political will of the Member States themselves.

Samsung Galaxy S4 et Note 2 Light sortie pour début 2013

first_imgSamsung Galaxy S4 et Note 2 “Light” : sortie pour début 2013 ?C’est un peu le retour de la rumeur concernant le prochain fer de lance de Samsung, le Galaxy S4. Le site SamMobile croit savoir qu’il sortirait en début d’année 2013. Lui, et un autre modèle “phare” du constructeur coréen.Ce n’est pas la première fois qu’on l’entend, mais cette rumeur devient persistante, et se préciserait même : selon le site SamMobile, le Samsung Galaxy S4 sortirait dans le courant du mois d’avril, c’est à dire trois mois après le CES 2013 de Las Vegas, mais surtout deux mois après le prochain MWC 2013 de Barcelone, Conférence pendant lequel de nombreuses rumeurs le verraient présentées.Le smartphone arborerait toujours un écran doté d’une diagonale de 5 pouces affichant une résolution en 1080p, un module APN de 13 Mpixels et intégrerait un processeur Exynos quad core.Selon le site SamMobile, le nom du projet derrière lequel se cacherait ce futur smartphone aurait l’appellation Project J en interne chez Samsung…Mais ce n’est pas tout !À lire aussiMaladie de Charcot : symptômes, causes, traitement, où en est on ?Alors que le Samsung Galaxy Note 2 se vend actuellement très bien, de nouvelles rumeurs font également état de la sortie d’une version Light ou Mini (comme ce fut le cas pour le Galaxy S3) du “tabphone” ou de la “Phablet”. Cette sortie justifierait celle, plutôt tardive, du Samsung Galaxy S4. Le Note 2 “Light” ou “Mini” aurait un écran de même taille, mais serait plus accessible que le modèle actuel, ce qui permettrait au constructeur d’étaler sa plage de modèle afin d’être le plus exhaustif possible.Malheureusement, dans cet étroit champ d’information, aucune nouvelle ne concerne les éléments moins “huppés” dont disposerait cette nouvelle version du “tabphone”, qui lui permettrait d’afficher un tarif plus accessible.Cependant, le mystère entourant les prochains modèles de smartphones Samsung devrait commencer de se dissiper, à l’approche des prochaines grand messes du domaine : le CES de Las Vegas et le MWC de Barcelone.Le 6 décembre 2012 à 11:47 • Maxime Lambertlast_img read more

Falling debris from decrepit apartments closes Juneau park

first_imgThe burnt-out Gastineau Apartments will finally be demolished by the end of November, according to Juneau’s city attorney. In the meantime, the city says the downtown buildings are a public safety concern. It’s temporarily closed the neighboring park due to falling debris.Download Audio:The city closed Pocket Park at the end of last week.Tourists stand in front of the closed Gunakadeit Park, also known as Pocket Park, on Monday. (Photo by Lisa Phu/KTOO)“One of our workers was in there the other day and noticed some broken glass in the fountain area,” says Colby Shibler, park maintenance supervisor for Parks and Recreation, “and realized that it wasn’t a broken bottle and then looked up and noticed a bunch of the windows were broken out in the building there and realized that the glass was probably falling out of the window or had been broken out from the inside, it looked like, and was concerned about glass falling on people in the park.”Dave Lane admits people have trespassed into the apartments in the past, but now he says the buildings are more secure. Lane does construction for the owners of Gastineau Apartments, James and Kathleen Barrett.“We as of late, and that being the past 8 months, 9 months, have been patrolling more. Almost every evening, we come through and we make sure there’s no one in here at that time. We made sure everything is secure to the best of our abilities,” Lane says.Gastineau Apartments still have unboarded, broken windows. (Photo by Lisa Phu/KTOO)City building official Charlie Ford says the Barretts are being negligent with security.“I had been working with Mr. Barrett to try and keep the building secured and all of a sudden, I noticed a side door was open and there was a ladder leaning up against the Rawn Way side of the building that was obviously used for access to get into the upper floors,” Ford says.Ford sent a letter to the Barretts Monday asking them to board up more windows and clean up the remaining glass shards. He says if they don’t care of it, the city will.Gastineau Apartments have been uninhabitable since a November 2012 fire. The city declared the buildings a public nuisance soon after. The Barretts have repeatedly missed deadlines for repairs or demolition. Part of the building caught on fire again in March.The Barretts had until June 19 to turn in paperwork and plans for demolishing the buildings. When they failed to do that, the city sent a letter a week later stating that it would demolish them on its own. At the end of June, the Assembly appropriated $1.8 million to do that.James Barrett says that’s hindered his own plans to sell or demolish the buildings. He says he’s talked to more than 30 companies.“It’s just put me at a standstill when we thought we were moving forward. I’m going to see where the other contractors who are bidding are going to end up. That’s about all I can do at this point,” Barrett says.Barrett says he’s seriously considering suing the city.last_img read more

The theme is relatively new for India but we’ve been seeing an organic growing demand from India which is why we set-up an office here,” stated Fah.As per the latest monthly report, Fah announced that there have been 15 million visits on the web and app portal. Stressing on mobile strategy this year, he added that since mobile is a major platform, people prefer mobile over desktop while booking their travel plans. They are also investing in machine learning and artificial intelligence (AI) this year.Stressing more about the travel pattern, he said the target age group is 23-35 age group and that on an average people book for 3-5 days.“Knowing that we’ve been in the market for less than four years, 2017 was the best year as we raised more than USD 90 million. We are targeting on multi-times growth this year and are confident in expanding globally,” voiced Fah.Recently, Klook partnered with Cleartrip which enables the India-based travel platform to augment its current offerings with a whole new selection of engaging activities and experiences, curated from European countries and South East Asian countries.last_img read more
