BLAIR WOOS LAWYERS WITH FOND MEMORIES

By on September 4, 2021

first_img whatsapp Monday 22 November 2010 7:50 pm whatsapp CITY law firm Clifford Chance last night played host to a gathering of 250 of the City’s most prominent names in a one-off chance to hear from former Prime Minister Tony Blair. Blair blitzed into the event and had to run off to another engagement immediately afterwards, but in between he found time to cover the small topics of Chinese growth, constituency politics and what it’s like to have 24-hour protection.Names on the guest list included former deputy PM John Prescott, former Lloyds boss Sir Victor Blank and Rolls Royce director Peter Morgan, as well as a collection of managers and analysts from Bank of America Merrill Lynch, Barclays, Prudential and KPMG.Our silver-tongued speaker began with some reminiscences. As a young barrister, he claimed, he had waited months for a case from Clifford Chance to come along. “It never arrived,” he said, “and my life has been downhill ever since.”As the public well knows, Blair’s nothing if not a flatterer.As for benefiting from police protection 24-7, it sounds like a bit of a breeze – with his police escort, the former PM doesn’t even have to pay a congestion charge as he sails through central London and parks wherever he pleases. Funnily enough, it sounds rather like still being in power. WELL WISHINGThe heavens have smiled on Northern Petroleum this week – for a moment at least. The oil explorer has just “spudded” or begun drilling at Markwells Wood in the south-east of the UK in the hopes of making a big find. The weather augured well: on the first day of drilling, as one of the firm’s consultants drove home from the well, he glanced back to see the end of a glorious rainbow touch down on the facility (see picture above).As godly City folk will know, the rainbow is traditionally a symbol of God’s covenant with Noah that he has brought an end to 40 days of devastating floods, but perhaps more importantly, rainbows are also meant to have a massive pot of gold at their end. Northern Petroleum can only watch and wait to see if there is black gold at the end of this rainbow. EASY RIDERHelical Bar chief executive Mike Slade is at it again – finding new ways to raise money for his chosen causes, that is. This time, he has teamed up with Frogmore managing director Paul White (pictured top right) to buy up a Triumph Bonneville motorbike and auction it off to raise money for LandAid, a charity that draws on donations from the property industry to help disadvantaged young people acquire useful skills.Now The Capitalist doesn’t know much about motorbikes – except that they’re fun to ride – but this looks like a rather special machine. It features seven-spoke alloy wheels, a 865cc parallel twin engine and electronic fuel injection. And it looks just snazzy.Bidding is open until 28 November, when the highest bidder will get an invite to the annual movers and shakers dinner on 2 December where an additional silent auction will be held to get the donations up to a respectable level. Bids should be sent to [email protected] PARTIALLeft-wing blog Labour Uncut yesterday received a setback in its newly-launched campaign for BBC impartiality. Launched just last week, the “Mandy4Strictly” campaign could already have received a fatal blow. Prompted by the crushing unfairness of having one Conservative and one Liberal Democrat booked for the Strictly Come Dancing’s Christmas special, and no Labour representative, Labour Uncut’s Dan Hodges has written to the BBC to demand that it enforce the impartiality required in its charter.And Hodges has a candidate in mind to take on ex-Tory MP Ann Widdecombe and business secretary Vince Cable, who has promised an appearance: “There is one man with poise, grace and elegance to lead us to our Canaan, (The Tower Ballroom, Blackpol [sic]),” wrote Hodges longingly last week.That man, it turns out, is Lord Mandelson, already known for his fondness for doing the tango. But the dream might have already died. In response to Hodges’ letter, BBC head of comms Kate Toft has some bad news: “Both Ann Widdecombe and Vince Cable are huge fans of the show and of ballroom dancing, as is Peter Mandelson, although he declined an offer to take part in the show,” she wrote.Clearly, it is time to take the campaign to the lord himself.FACE THE MUSICNever mind the disappointment over Lord Mandelson – it’s time to dust off your dancing shoes anyway. The John East Project, the melodic jazz band led by Merchant Securities deputy chief executive John East, has announced that it will be playing one more date in the City before Christmas. The first will be in Club Ten in the Grange Hotel near St Pauls on 8 December. But luckily, if you can’t catch the band this side of the new year, you’ll have another chance afterwards: East is taking his music to the 606 Club for a second time on 19 January. 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 PastPeople TodayNewborn’s Strange Behavior Troubles Mom, 40 Years Later She Finds The Reason Behind ItPeople TodayMoneyPailShe Was Famous, Now She Works In {State}MoneyPailSerendipity TimesInside Coco Chanel’s Eerily Abandoned Mansion Frozen In TimeSerendipity TimesZen HeraldNASA’s Voyager 2 Has Entered Deep Space – And It Brought Scientists To Their KneesZen HeraldWanderoamIdentical Twins Marry Identical Twins – But Then The Doctor Says, “STOP”Wanderoammoneycougar.comThis Proves The Osmonds Weren’t So Innocentmoneycougar.comAlphaCute30 Rules That All “Hells Angels” Have To FollowAlphaCute BLAIR WOOS LAWYERS WITH FOND MEMORIES center_img Show Comments ▼ KCS-content Tags: NULL More From Our Partners Brave 7-Year-old Boy Swims an Hour to Rescue His Dad and Little Sistergoodnewsnetwork.orgMark Eaton, former NBA All-Star, dead at 64nypost.comNative American Tribe Gets Back Sacred Island Taken 160 Years Agogoodnewsnetwork.orgA ProPublica investigation has caused outrage in the U.S. this weekvaluewalk.comRussell Wilson, AOC among many voicing support for Naomi Osakacbsnews.comI blew off Adam Sandler 22 years ago — and it’s my biggest regretnypost.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.org980-foot skyscraper sways in China, prompting panic and evacuationsnypost.comWhy people are finding dryer sheets in their mailboxesnypost.comKiller drone ‘hunted down a human target’ without being told tonypost.comSupermodel Anne Vyalitsyna claims income drop, pushes for child supportnypost.comUK teen died on school trip after teachers allegedly refused her pleasnypost.comInside Ashton Kutcher and Mila Kunis’ not-so-average farmhouse estatenypost.comFeds seized 18 devices from Rudy Giuliani and his employees in April raidnypost.comBiden received funds from top Russia lobbyist before Nord Stream 2 giveawaynypost.comMatt Gaetz swindled by ‘malicious actors’ in $155K boat sale boondogglenypost.com Sharelast_img read more

Here at The Motley Fool we believe that considering a diverse range of insights makes us better investors. Trying to estimate when the stock market will cease falling and recover is almost impossible. The spread of coronavirus and its economic impact is a known unknown. So too is investor sentiment towards the wider stock market.However, buying shares in high-quality FTSE 100 stocks today could be a good move. This may not prove to be the very lowest ebb of the FTSE 100’s crash. But the index’s valuations and track record suggest that now is a buying opportunity for long-term investors.5G is here – and shares of this ‘sleeping giant’ could be a great way for you to potentially profit!According to one leading industry firm, the 5G boom could create a global industry worth US$12.3 TRILLION out of thin air…And if you click here we’ll show you something that could be key to unlocking 5G’s full potential…Market crashThe FTSE 100’s recent decline is among its fastest ever recorded. Although there have been some signs of recovery in between its declines, the overall trend has generally been downwards. This situation may persist over the coming weeks and months depending on how coronavirus ultimately impacts the world economy.Judging exactly when to buy during such a period is fraught with difficulty. News flow is highly changeable, and investors risk waiting too long and missing out on the early stages of a market comeback.Low valuationsAs such, focusing on the long-term value available in the stock market at the present time could be a good idea. Many of the FTSE 100’s members offer wide margins of safety after recording major falls in their share prices. Compared to their historic averages, their valuations are exceptionally low in many cases. This could mean that, over time, they are able to deliver high returns as their profitability and valuations recover.Although a sustained recovery may seem unlikely right now, the FTSE 100 has experienced bear markets several times in its past. In some cases, it has taken a number of years for the index to deliver a full turnaround from its decline. But on every previous occasion it has managed to achieve this goal. Therefore, buying shares today while they appear to be cheap in many cases could be a sound means of generating high returns in the long run.Managing emotionsOne of the biggest challenges facing all investors at the present time is managing your emotions. It is easy to worry about the performances of your existing investments, which are likely to have experienced major falls in recent months. This may dissuade you from buying new stocks, thereby reducing your chances of capitalising on the FTSE 100’s low valuation.However, most investors wish to buy shares while they trade at low prices. In order for the index to trade at a low level, there usually must be a good reason for it to do so. Although this can mean there are short-term risks, the world economy is very likely to recover in the long run.Therefore, by focusing on the long-term prospects of a diverse range of shares, you can benefit from the cyclicality of the stock market. This process may not be an easy one, but history shows that some of the most successful investors have bought while their peers have been selling. This has helped them to generate relatively high returns in the long run. See all posts by Peter Stephens Our 6 ‘Best Buys Now’ Shareslast_img read more

A time to prepare for hurricanes and other emotional storms to…

first_img charles towne TAGSDon LindseyInspiration Previous article22 questions that will put you on a path to self-realizationNext articleUpdating Breaking News: Apopka man dies in motorcycle crash Denise Connell RELATED ARTICLESMORE FROM AUTHOR Storms? How many storms have blown into my long and eventful life? Snow storms… Wind storms… Rain storms… but do you know what, we usually come out the other side in o.k. condition. From the time when I was a kid I enjoyed a good storm. I love walking in the rain. When Andrew hit south Florida I was hiking in dense forest. Huge trees bent and some broke and crashed to the ground. I am going through a stormy time right now having place my darling in a nursing home, but this, as those other storms are temporary. Sometimes we are bent a little with the storms of life beating us up but then they usually pass and life goes on and the sunshine of God’s love drives away what might have been. Blessings on you and yours. Chaz Please enter your name here The Anatomy of Fear 2 COMMENTS Well said my friend, God’s love can guide us through anything. My prayers are with you and yours as always. God bless!D.L. InspirationBy Don LindseyIn the last two weeks or so, it seems as if every TV, radio station or other local media outlet is warning me that hurricane season is upon us.  With Irma being the biggest and scariest storm I’ve ever been a part of, we’re taking the time now to stock up on the essential things such as water, batteries, canned food, etc.  As I was watching the news yesterday and listening to tips and such about hurricane preparedness, I began to reflect a bit and realized that the physical storms that may fall on our region aren’t the only type of storms, there are also personal issues that I’m preparing for and dealing with these days.As I have mentioned before, my father’s health has been a concern this year, and on Wednesday, he was admitted to the hospital for chest pains. That’s always scary and even more so for me given the fact that he’s 86 years old.  On Saturday, I was able to bring him home feeling better with the issues corrected, but every time he or my mother has a health scare, I’m forced to see just how precious my time with them is.I mentioned earlier about stocking up for hurricane season, and as I was at the hospital visiting my father the other day, I began to think. I realized that in a lot of ways, I am preparing for the emotional storms as well through prayer and getting the most out of every moment I have with my parents.  With prayer, I feel more centered and less burdened because I am giving the issues that I have no control over to God knowing that He will lead me in the right direction when the time is right.  When I am not using prayer as a refuge, my life seems to be way more chaotic and out of control.  It also helps me see things going on around me a lot clearer because I don’t have the typical daily worry.For some, it may not be prayer.  Maybe it’s music, meditation, spending time with friends and family or some other way.  Regardless, I have found that whatever it is that gives us that mental respite is essential for staying calm when life throws rough weather in our direction.  Staying calm can help those around us stay that way as well because it is challenging to see those we love upset, making us that way in the process.  No matter how it is you prepare for the storms both physically and emotionally in your lives this season, I pray that you stay safe and lift up those around you to be prepared and safe as well.  God Bless.

Borrower Outreach Events Proving Successful at Preventing Foreclosures

By on May 31, 2021

first_img Demand Propels Home Prices Upward 2 days ago Servicers Navigate the Post-Pandemic World 2 days ago Demand Propels Home Prices Upward 2 days ago Sign up for DS News Daily The Best Markets For Residential Property Investors 2 days ago Related Articles Data Provider Black Knight to Acquire Top of Mind 2 days ago Foreclosures have been continually on the decline nationwide for a few years. While much of the decline can be attributed to a recovering economy, another driver of the drop in foreclosures is increased borrower outreach efforts from various organizations.Borrower outreach events include HUD-approved housing counselors and mortgage servicers in order to give distressed borrowers a face-to-face meeting to work out a solution such as a permanent loan modification that will allow borrowers to remain in their homes. If a home retention solution cannot be worked out, often a non-foreclosure home forfeiture solution is offered such as a short sale or deed-in-lieu of foreclosure.Often, borrower outreach events include non-profits the servicers have partnered with or local civic leaders from the cities in which the events are held. On November 14, Ocwen Financial and the NAACP Maryland State Conference hosted a “Help & Hope for Homeowners” event in Upper Marlboro, Maryland; at that event, Ocwen Home Retention Agents and HUD-approved counselors met one-on-one with approximately 325 borrowers to help them avoid foreclosure and make their monthly mortgage payments more manageable.”It is important to recognize that while some have recovered from the housing crisis, many families, especially in low-income communities, are still struggling to keep their homes. Saturday’s turnout confirms that fact,” explained Edsel Brown, Jr., NAACP Maryland State Conference Economic Development Chair. “The NAACP is pleased that Ocwen is working with us on the local level to offer borrowers the opportunity to meet with their experienced home retention agents and HUD counselors face-to-face to explore modification options that can help save their homes.”The Maryland event was the fourth in a series hosted by Ocwen and the NAACP this year (the others were in Illinois, Florida, and Maryland). Ocwen and the NAACP have met with approximately 800 homeowners in the four events.”Both Ocwen and the NAACP are committed to helping borrowers have every opportunity to remain in their homes,” commented Jill Showell, Senior Vice President of Government and Community Relations at Ocwen. “Co-hosting these events with the NAACP, a trusted resource in the community, adds tremendous value and ensures higher participation rates. The numbers speak for themselves.””It is important to recognize that while some have recovered from the housing crisis, many families, especially in low-income communities, are still struggling to keep their homes.” Tagged with: Foreclosure Prevention HOPE NOW Loss Mitigation NAACP Ocwen About Author: Brian Honea Previous: Many Consumers Still Weighed Down by Mortgage Debt Next: Department of Justice May Seek Criminal Charges Against RBS, Chase Execs in Daily Dose, Featured, Loss Mitigation, News Brian Honea’s writing and editing career spans nearly two decades across many forms of media.

Many of those modifications included a principal reduction for underwater borrowers or borrowers facing foreclosure.For example, HOPE NOW, a non-profit alliance between counselors, mortgage companies, investors, regulators and other mortgage market participants that facilitates foreclosure prevention solutions, has conducted borrower outreach events in seven cities this year—Oakland, San Bernardino, Chicago, St. Louis, Cleveland, Milwaukee, and La Mirada (in the Los Angeles area), with an event schedule for Fort Lauderdale on November 19 and Queens, New York, in December. In Fort Lauderdale, HOPE NOW is partnering with the Urban League of Broward County; in Queens, they are partnering with the Center for New York City Neighborhoods.“On the local level, government partners are focused on issues including abandoned properties, affordable housing and neighborhood stability,” HOPE NOW Executive Director Eric Selk said. “Two more roundtables are scheduled for South Florida in November and New York City in December. At face-to-face consumer events so far this year, HOPE NOW servicers are seeing a significant number of delinquent or imminent default customers—65 percent of attendees—as well as a large number of first time loan mod applicants, 38 percent of attendees. Of these homeowners, at least 45 percent are reviewed for HAMP mods and 12 percent are reviewed for proprietary programs.”A total of 1,636 homeowners have attended the seven HOPE NOW outreach events in 2015. The largest one was in La Mirada, which featured 319 attendees. HOPE NOW has scaled down its events from serving 1,000 attendees to between 300 and 400. An average of about 10 to 12 servicers and 12 to 15 housing counselors attend each event despite a drastic decline in serious delinquencies from their peak five years ago (from four million down to about 1.65 million). Also, the breadth of government and private solutions available has increased; therefore homeowners tend to spend a longer time one on one with their servicer.According to HOPE NOW, about 20 percent of attendees make same-day decisions about their homes, mostly because servicers need to collect the packages in their entirety before they are submitted to underwriting. Those who do not make same-day decisions, however, often leave with clear and concise next steps along with a single point of contact and a checklist.

Comparing electron precipitation fluxes calculated from pitch angle diffusion coefficients to LEO satellite observations

By on May 9, 2021

first_imgParticle precipitation is a loss mechanism from the Radiation Belts whereby particles trapped by the Earth’s magnetic field are scattered into the loss cone due to wave‐particle interactions. Energetic electron precipitation creates ozone destroying chemicals which can affect the temperatures of the polar regions, therefore it is crucial to accurately quantify this impact on the Earth’s atmosphere. We use bounce‐averaged pitch angle diffusion coefficients for whistler mode chorus waves, plasmaspheric hiss and atmospheric collisions to calculate magnetic local time (MLT) dependent electron precipitation inside the field of view of the Polar Orbiting Environmental Satellites (POES) T0 detector, between 26‐30 March 2013. These diffusion coefficients are used in the BAS Radiation Belt Model (BAS‐RBM) and this paper is a first step towards testing the loss in this model via comparison with real world data. We find the best agreement between the calculated and measured T0 precipitation at L* > 5 on the dawnside for the > 30keV electron channel, consistent with precipitation driven by lower band chorus. Additional diffusion is required to explain the flux at higher energies and on the dusk side. The POES T0 detector underestimates electron precipitation as its field of view does not measure the entire loss cone. We demonstrate the potential for utilizing diffusion coefficients to reconstruct precipitating flux over the entire loss cone. Our results show that the total precipitation can exceed that measured by the POES > 30 keV electron channel by a factor that typically varies from 1 to 10 for L* = 6, 6.5 and 7.last_img read more

Sandwich chain outlines ambitious store plan

By on April 20, 2021

first_imgHigh street sandwich chain EAT will open two more London sites in May as it presses on with expansion plans to double the business over the next three years. It has opened three stores in the past four weeks, all in London: in Holborn, central; Broadwick Street, Soho; and Lime Street in the City.Two more sites are secured and due to open in May – one is in the City and one is in the West End. All new sites have “ample seating” for 100 covers or more. Sarah Doyle, brand director, told British Baker: “We know people are eating in and drinking in more and are using the space to meet friends and colleagues.”Five more sites are planned for opening throughout May and June. They will all be in London, but exact locations have not yet been disclosed.Doyle added: “We plan to open around 30 stores a year for each year going forward, roughly doubling the size of the brand and store estate over three years.” EAT currently operates 114 shops. “These openings will extend our presence in London, but also across the UK.”last_img read more
