Adults want cozy kids want gross 4 holiday trends to watch

first_imgNEW YORK — Cozy sweaters and soft pyjamas are in for adults. Kids, meanwhile, are asking for board games featuring fake poop and pimples.Those are just some of the trends expected this holiday season, when shoppers are projected to spend as much as $720 billion, according to the National Retail Federation.Here’s what to expect:LET’S GET COZYBlame it on holiday stress: Target, Kohl’s and other retailers are pushing “cozy” goods. That means pyjamas for the family, weighted blankets, fuzzy mules and everything Sherpa — from socks to sweatshirts.“This holiday season we will see this trend in all of its furriness,” says Maria Rugolo, an apparel industry analyst for NPD Group, in a company blog .Kohl’s is making it easy to choose soft and snuggly fashions by prominently displaying the looks near store entrances and in nearly a dozen gifting areas. Greg Revelle, Kohl’s chief marketing officer, told reporters last month that “cozy knits” was one of the most searched for terms on its website last year.PIMPLES, POOP AND SOMETHING CUTE“Gross definitely sells in the toy business,” says Jim Silver, the editor in chief of toy review site one game, called Don’t Step In It, players are blindfolded and have to avoid stepping in soft, clay-like “poop.” A unicorn version of the game features poop in bright colours. Both have been on Amazon’s list of bestselling toys.Another popular game is Pimple Pete, says Silver. Players pull, wiggle or twist out squishy “zits” from a plastic face. Losers get squirted with water.It’s not all gross. The LOL Surprise brand is a hot seller again so far this year, according to Adobe Analytics, which tracks online spending. With LOL Surprise, kids peel each layer of a shrink-wrapped plastic ball to reveal dolls, stickers or other trinkets.SPRUCED UP APPS AND websiteSOld-guard retailers are adding some new features to their shopping apps and websites.Using Target’s app, shoppers can scan its physical toy catalogue so they can find more details about the items and add them to their shopping cart.The Kohl’s app offers the option to scan and store Kohl’s cash and redeem the store’s rewards points and gift cards in a digital wallet for easy access to checkout. Shoppers can also use the app to take photos of products and then find similar items at Kohl’s.Walmart has been revamping its website over the past year to allow shoppers to easily discover more items. The discounter recently introduced, a new digital playground where shoppers can play with 20 top toys on their computer or tablet. They can also share their favourites on a digital wish list. At the store, Walmart’s app now helps shoppers find the exact location of a particular item.The Macy’s app comes with an augmented reality feature that lets customers virtually design and experience the interior of a room. The app also lets shoppers scan items and pay with a pre-registered credit card. They then walk to a checkout counter so that a worker can verify their purchase.ONLINE RETAILERS GO OLD SCHOOLAmazon and eBay are taking a page from traditional retailers and printing their own toy catalogues.Amazon is shipping its toy book to shoppers’ mailboxes while eBay placed a shortened six-page version inside People magazine’s “Sexiest Man Alive” issue. Amazon’s will also be available at its physical bookstores, and eBay handed out a longer version at a New York pop-up shop.One thing missing from Amazon’s toy book: prices. The online retailer tells readers to pick up a phone, open the Amazon app and take a snap of the toy to see how much it costs.Both companies are trying to make a play for former shoppers of Toys R Us, which sent holiday toy catalogues each year before shutting down this summer.“Kids love them,” says Silver, noting how they like to circle what they want. “It’s a different experience than sitting at the computer.”Ap Retail Writers, The Associated Presslast_img read more

Pilot arrested on toilet with his trousers down after smuggling £24m of

first_imgThe plane used by the drug smugglerCredit:NCA/PA Prosecutor Ailsa Williamson said that Buwalda, from Hilversum, told officers he worked for the Chinese Europe Medical Post Grad Academy, which provided European-standard training to Chinese-taught dentists.He is said to have told them he had flown to the UK on June 30 using the academy’s Piper Alpha to network at the University of Greenwich.But he admitted he had not spoken to anyone at the university nor set up any meetings before leaving the Netherlands.Prosecutors alleged he brought the drugs across in red metal boxes, which he claimed were wing weights used to prevent gusts of wind from lifting the wings while the aircraft is on the ground.Buwalda told the NCA agents he took the weights boxes into the Holiday Inn because he wanted to “show off and look the part of a pilot”.But Ms Williamson said: “They were not wing weights and if they were, we would expect them to be attached to the wing and not taken into the hotel.”Polak, of Borehamwood, Hertfordshire, told officers he worked for a cosmetics company and was paid £300 to collect a package for a business contact called Timmy.He denied ever looking into the bag or knowing what was inside when questioned.Neither defendant reacted when they were found guilty. Sentencing was adjourned to February 3. A pilot is facing jail after being arrested on the toilet with his trousers down as he smuggled cocaine worth more than £2.4 million into the UK.Dutch national John Buwalda, 49, was held by National Crime Agency officers in a Holiday Inn near Rochester Airport in Kent shortly after flying in from the Netherlands in a light aircraft.Minutes earlier, his accomplice, Jan Polak, had been arrested outside the hotel carrying 48lb (22kg) of cocaine with a high purity level.Following a trial at the Old Bailey, the pair were both found guilty of plotting to smuggle in the Class A drugs in June. The plane used by the drug smuggler NCA officer Jim McMorrow told the trial how he arrested Buwalda while he was sitting on the toilet.He said that after Polak was detained, officers went to the hotel room he had been in and discovered Buwalda in the bathroom.He told the jury: “Mr Buwalda was sitting on the toilet. He had a white top on and his trousers were by his legs.”I informed him we had arrested a man … and he had given us the room as the one he had been in.”I asked him what he was doing here and he said ‘I flew in from Hilversum today’. I informed him I was arresting him.”The Old Bailey was told that the drugs, which were found to have an 80 per cent purity level, were worth £2,408,040 on the street.center_img blocks of cocaine found with Dutch national pilot John Buwalda Blocks of cocaine found with Dutch national pilot John BuwaldaCredit:NCA/PA Want the best of The Telegraph direct to your email and WhatsApp?

People still remember me for marking Ronaldo in the FA Cup final

first_img Follow us: EVERY THURSDAY EVENING just as the sun was disappearing behind the houses, the game of football would be momentarily halted. We could have played on, and up until a few weeks previous would have, but the milkman’s visit had taken on an entirely different context now.Stephen Ennis used to come and collect the delivery money from around the estate but, more pertinently, he knew a footballer named Robbie Ryan. He was from just around the corner in Ballybrack.If truth be told, we had no idea who Robbie Ryan was or what he even looked like — he wasn’t in our Premier League sticker albums — but we knew he played for Millwall and with each passing week the chances of him playing in an FA Cup final were increasing. Robbie Ryan and Cristiano Ronaldo during the 2004 FA Cup final. Source: Matthew AshtonDennis Wise’s side, playing in the Championship at the time, embarked on the most remarkable cup run during the 2004 season, defeating Walsall, Telford, Burnley, Tranmere and Sunderland on their way to Cardiff’s Millennium Stadium.The final proved a step too far as they were beaten 3-0 by Manchester United, but much to our amazement, Robbie Ryan, the footballer from around the corner and the milkman’s mate, was the man to mark Cristiano Ronaldo that afternoon.“He’s done alright for himself since hasn’t he,” Ryan jokes.The former defender remembers the day like it was yesterday, but how could he not? The FA Cup final in front of 71,000 in Cardiff.“Stephen and loads of my mates and family came over for it,” he recalls. “I’m not sure the FA should know but I think I ended up getting 50 or 60 tickets, obviously I had to pay for them.“You had to have a pass to get into the Millwall section as there was trouble so I had loads of passes as my mates would have come over once or twice a year and every pass you had you were allowed buy two FA Cup tickets. I think we were allowed 12 as a player but I ended up with 50 or 60.“I used to get nervous before games but I remember before that game thinking, you know what I’m 27, I’m going to enjoy this. Driving through Cardiff and seeing the sea of blue and I was just trying to take it all in.“Even out warming up and walking out, I just tried to savour it and looked to the crowd where all the gang were.”At the time, Ronaldo was the most expensive teenager in the history of British football and had really started to flourish in a red shirt, demonstrating that prodigious talent Alex Ferguson had seen when he brought him to Old Trafford at the start of the season.Ryan remembers watching the Portuguese winger in the weeks leading up to the final as he tormented Premier League left backs with his direct running and electric pace. He wished Arsenal had beaten United in the semi-final.“I think I was done once by Ronaldo, he got to the byline and I had committed myself by sliding in,” he continues. “I certainly wouldn’t like to play against him now but even then you knew he was special.“I think I watched it back once with my da but I don’t like watching myself, especially when we lost. I just think I don’t need to see that again but maybe one day I’ll get it out, haven’t seen it for years now.”Millwall had been able to keep United at bay for a large chunk of the first half but Ronaldo found the breakthrough just before the interval, with Ruud van Nistelrooy settling the contest with a second-half brace. Ryan was a fan’s favourite at Millwall, spending six years and playing 226 times for the club. Source: PA Archive/PA Images“We just weren’t good enough,” Ryan admits. ”We had a couple of injuries but even then would wouldn’t have been able to touch them. I remember thinking jesus Keane, Scholes, Ronaldo and van Nistelrooy but once that whistle goes you could be playing against anyone. It’s just another game.“It was obviously hugely disappointing to lose as you never want to go that far and finish second but it was a great day. A proud day, especially to have all the lads over. People still come up to me and say I marked Ronaldo and obviously the player he has gone on to be, it’s quite a nice thing to tell my kid. Yeah I did mark Ronaldo, or at least tried to.”It’s probably fair to say their respective careers headed on different trajectories after that day, with the FA Cup final turning out to be Ryan’s last in a Millwall shirt after six years at the Den.Out of contract that summer, the Dubliner had hoped his consistent performances would earn him an improved deal but when the club were unwilling to enter negotiations, he had no choice but to seek opportunities elsewhere. After 226 appearances for Millwall, he was within his right to look for improved terms. They never came.“I was brought off by the manager after an hour of the final. I wasn’t injured, he’d been doing that for a while because I hadn’t signed a new contract,” Ryan explains. “It was obviously hugely disappointed but it had been going on for three or four months.“I wish we could have sorted something out but my principles were my principles and I stuck to them. They offered me a one-year contract with the same money I was on so on their part they weren’t offering me anything.“It wasn’t about money so I said give me a two-year deal on the same money, they said no. I said give me a one-year deal on more money and they said no so in my eyes they’re just taking the piss a little bit.”On the back of an FA Cup final appearance, Ryan felt he was in with a good chance of attracting the attention of a Premier League club, particularly as he was a free agent, but a move up the ladder never materialised.Instead, he dropped down two divisions and signed a three-year deal at Bristol Rovers where he struggled to break into the manager’s plans and was released with a season left on his contract.“Looking back I went to Bristol Rovers and that didn’t work out so maybe I should have signed a one-year deal at Millwall but I wouldn’t change anything about it, my principles were my principles and I stand by them. It didn’t work out but I believe I was right.

Source: EMPICS Sport“If I was in that position again, I wouldn’t sign the contract again as it felt like they didn’t want me to be honest and that was the main thing. I couldn’t play in the reserves, I wasn’t one of those players. If I was in the reserves I’d get depressed and miss home and feel like shit.“I had to play week in, week out so I thought if that’s not going to be at Millwall it’s going to have to be somewhere else. I thought I might have got a better club than Bristol Rovers but it wasn’t to be.“Bristol Rovers is a big club to be fair and I went down there and I just didn’t get on with the gaffer. From day one I just got a bad vibe and since then it just went pear-shaped to be honest. That’s football I suppose.”In the end, Ryan walked away from the game at the age of 31 disillusioned and fed up; just four years had passed since that day in Cardiff.He had lost his way, lost his confidence and lost his motivation to continue on in the cut-throat industry of England’s lower leagues. Three clubs told him he wasn’t good enough and the third setback, after what he thought was an encouraging trial with Northampton Town, proved to be the final straw.Looking back now, it’s easy to say he should have done things differently, like lowered his expectations and signed on at Millwall or not let his on field problems filter into everyday life but going from the highs of an FA Cup final to the sinking low of being unemployed was difficult to comprehend.“I didn’t have my family around me and I used to get down,” he says of his time in Bristol.“I’m older and wiser now and I probably should have grown up and said fuck this, if I don’t get on with the gaffer that’s him but I let it effect me and all of a sudden I’m playing shit and getting more depressed. It becomes a vicious circle to be honest.“I’m not blaming the gaffer, it was me who played shit but I didn’t get on with him from day one and all of a sudden I lost my confidence completely. I struggled to get it back to be honest, it happened a couple of times in my career and looking back I should have been strong enough to get back but I got so depressed because I wasn’t playing or playing well.“I wouldn’t talk for two days, I let it effect me too much. It was my life. Being depressed for two days a week and then you’re thinking do I even want to play football? That’s the way it got.”After a difficult couple of months, Ryan thought he’d got the break he so desperately craved when Northampton came calling and offered him a trial. Living with Burnley manager Sean Dyche, who he knew from Millwall, Ryan would travel from London everyday for training and was convinced he had done enough to earn a contract. Ryan grew up in Ballybrack and started his career with local club Loughlinstown before moving to Belvedere. Source: EMPICS Sport“I was up there for maybe two weeks and I had done well, I was in training and thought I had got my confidence back and even the lads in training were asking where had I been released from. I told them Bristol Rovers and they wondered why I had been playing with them,” he explains.“I was sitting in the changing room thinking happy days, I had my spark back. It was January and Sean was saying 100% they’ll offer you a contract until the end of the season at least and I was thinking this is sweet. Next day, gaffer rings me and tells me he doesn’t want me.“I remember driving back from Northampton to London thinking ‘you know what, I’ve had enough. I’ve given it my all and I’m still not good enough for whatever reason.’ They didn’t want me and Sean said he couldn’t believe they didn’t sign me on a three-year deal for a couple hundred of pounds a week. I wouldn’t have taken a wage, if I played in the first team just pay me an appearance fee. That’s all I wanted. I just drove home and knew I had had enough at that point.”The thrilling highs of promotions with Millwall and the dazzling, unforgettable heights of Cardiff were a distant memory for Ryan. Football had given him so much, but it had now chewed him up and spat him back out.Shortly after he had been turned away by Northampton, a friend convinced him to go for an interview with the London Underground. Ryan had no intention to go but with no wage coming in through football, and a first born on the way, he had to look at different career options.“When my mate told me about the interview, I was thinking no way I want to keep fucking going,” he continued.“The boss used to be a footballer as well so I thought I may as well and I got it and have been there 10 years now. I was playing Conference football at the start but was going through the motions and gave up football then. I had enough of combining the two.“I start my shift at 11pm and work until 6.30am in the morning. When the trains stop running, we got on the track and do our job [repairing the lines] and then have to be back off at around 4.30 in the morning. It’s not too bad as I have the day time to myself to pick my daughter up from school and go to the gym.“I’ve just been promoted and touch wood it’s a job for life. It suits me as my wife works so I can pick Brook up from school but she’s getting old now, 11, and she’s getting the train or bus home so I’ll have loads of free time.“It’s not as good as being a footballer but I enjoy it and it pays the bills. I’m not going to complain or moan about life, I’ve had a good time and I’m happy. I’ve got lovely memories from football but I’ve moved on.” Ryan competes for the ball with Ronaldo in Cardiff. Source: John WaltonRyan will always be remembered for that May day when he lined up opposite one of the biggest names in the game, but there were other highlights too, most notably the 1997 Fifa Youth World Championship as Brian Kerr’s young side finished third.The 40-year-old was back in Dublin last week to meet up with his old team-mates to mark the 20th anniversary of that remarkable achievement.“It was an amazing experience, and great to be part of,” he adds. “We weren’t the strongest team but Brian made us solid and hard to beat. It was a great brunch and we created some amazing memories out there.“From that tournament to different promotions with Millwall and the FA Cup final, I had some great times. I wouldn’t change anything. I’ve had a great time, I loved Millwall.“As a kid you want to play in the FA Cup as a kid which I did and the Premier League which I didn’t but when you’re a kid you don’t think you’re going to be a footballer, you want to be one but don’t think you’re going to be a footballer.“Especially coming from Ballybrack the best you’re thinking is playing for Belvedere or something.

Consumer Reports Buys Gawker Blog

first_imgDenton Downsizes Blog EmpireNick Denton, Gawker Media’s founder, had been dangling the consumer-focused blog since at least November, the same month he folded Silicon Valley-focused ValleyWag and laid off a number of staffers across the company. He is also in talks to sell Defamer, a Hollywood-focused blog.In April, Denton sold three underperforming blogs—Idolator, Wonkette and Gridskipper. (Gawker’s current blog portfolio includes the flagship Gawker site as well as the gadget-themed Gizmodo and anti-airbrushing women’s blog, Jezebel.)In a post on his personal Web site, Denton predicted advertising will drop 30 percent or more in 2009.Consumer Reports’ subscriber-based model, meanwhile, has done well online. More than 3.3 million pay to subscribe to, making it the “largest paid-subscriber site in the world,” the company said. Consumers Union, the Yonkers, New York-based publisher of Consumer Reports magazine and, has acquired from Gawker Media. Terms of the deal were not disclosed.The site will operate independently from the magazine and Web site, and will be the first property housed under a new division called Consumer Media LLC. And, as is the case with Consumer Reports, will no longer accept ads, the company said, Still, there are no plans to make the site subscriber-based akin to Consumer Reports.Readers of the blog are “passionate about fair retail practices, truth in advertising, product safety, and other topics that Consumer Reports has championed for more than 70 years,” Consumers Union president Jim Guest said in a statement. “The site is a perfect fit for advancing our mission of creating a fair, safe, and just marketplace.”last_img read more

Govt to digitally control traffic in Dhaka PM

first_imgPrime minister Sheikh Hasina. File PhotoPrime minister and leader of the House Sheikh Hasina on Wednesday said her government wants to control traffic signal digitally to ease traffic jam in the capital.“We want to control traffic in Dhaka city electronically and digitally…some parts of the capital have already been brought under such a system and if the system is introduced in rest of the parts, the sufferings of the people will be reduced to a great extent,” she said.The prime minister was replying to a query raised by Jatiya Party lawmaker Kazi Feroz Rashid in the House during her question-answer session with speaker Shirin Sharmin Chaudhury in the chair.The leader of the House said her government has reintroduced automatic signalling system in Dhaka city which almost went out of order previously.She said traffic could be controlled manually in some cases, but there are allegations that this system is applied in some areas for a long time.“So I would like to tell the authorities, which control traffic signal, not to hold vehicles for so much time,” she said.The leader of the House said the traffics in Dhaka city are now struggling to control signal due to pressure of huge number of vehicles. “But trafficjam will be reduced to a great extent if digital system is introduced in the entire city,” she said.The prime minister said she almost gave up going out of residence as the traffics hold vehicles of the people when her motorcade moves in the city.“Except attending office and other programmes, I seldom visit other places, and its reason is that if the traffic stops the public vehicles.”Sheikh Hasina said when she assumed office in 2009, there were 52 vehicles in her motorcade which was reduced to eight later. “Efforts are made always not to keep extra vehicles in my motorcade,” she said.Referring to the notorious traffic jam in London and Washington cities, the leader of the House said the traffic jam is now a worldwide problem.She said the people are buying more cars and driving those as the population is increasing and the financial solvency of the people is on the rise.The premier said she is pursuing politics and working for the welfare of the people, not for herself.“I try to know which is good and which is bad for the people and I also try to solve their problems,” she said.Sheikh Hasina said: “The people have elected us through vote and I think it’s our responsibility to do work for them … I’ve taken it as my duty.”She added: “The power is to me not a matter of enjoyment, it’s a matter of serving the people. That’s why it is very much necessary to know the country and for that reason, I always try to do welfare-oriented work for the people.”Responding to another supplementary, the prime minister said whenever her government came to power it gave importance to the public transports. “But the public transport was squeezed when all embarked on the trade ofminibuses, and a plan was undertaken to stop public transports completely in the city,” she said.She said the past governments had taken decisions to stop the BRTC services showing loss of the state-run organisation. “But after coming to power, we reorganised the BRTC and purchased many buses and trucks for it,” she said.The prime minister said her government is implementing a number of mega projects including metro rail in Dhaka city under the public transport system.Sheikh Hasina said the biggest problem is that those who move in the city do not follow the traffic rules. “Besides some people stop and park their vehicles here and there creating various problems … had they moved in a planned way, these problems would have been solved much earlier,” she added.In reply to a starred question from treasury bench member Didarul Alam, the prime minister said a number of projects were executed in the last 10 years through various ministries and departments while many schemes are under implementation to ease traffic jam in Dhaka city.If the schemes are implemented, she said, it is expected that Dhaka city will be freed from traffic jam very soon.The leader of the House said her government is considering implementing projects similar to Dhaka in Chattogram to reduce traffic jam there.last_img read more

Environmentalists Applaud EPA Decision On Waste Pits

We have some substantial erosion around the temporary cap.

Former Drug Industry Executive Will Lead Dept Of Health And Human Services

first_imgCarolyn Kaster/APThe Senate has confirmed Alex Azar, President Trump’s nominee to become Secretary of Health and Human Services.A former pharmaceutical industry official who says drug prices are too high will now be in charge of buying more medications than anyone in the world.Alex Azar, former president of the U.S. arm of Eli Lilly & Co., was confirmed Wednesday as Secretary of Health and Human Services.In that role he’ll oversee the Food and Drug Administration, which regulates prescription drugs including those produced by his former employer. He’ll also oversee Medicare and Medicaid, which together spend hundreds of billions of dollars each year on prescription medications.He’ll take over the agency at a time when rising drug prices are a huge political issue.Azar acknowledged as much in his confirmation hearing in early January. He told members of the Senate Finance Committee that dealing with high drug prices would be a top priority.But Azar doesn’t have the power to get Congress to change the law to let Medicare negotiate prices directly with manufacturers. He told senators that allowing the insurance companies that contract with Medicare is more effective.“These are incredibly powerful negotiators who get the best rates available,” he said.Azar spent five years at Eli Lilly, which makes several blockbuster medications, including Cialis, which treats erectile dysfunction; the antidepressant Cymbalta; and several forms of insulin. Insulin prices have drawn particular fire because they keep spiraling higher, even though insulin has been around almost a century.The prices of Lilly’s insulin drugs Humalog and Humulin, for instance, have both risen about 225 percent since 2011, according to data from the investment research firm Bernstein.Before his stint at Eli Lilly, Azar served in HHS under President George W. Bush, so he’s familiar with the sprawling agency that also includes the National Institutes of Health, the Indian Health Service and the U.S. Public Health Service.Azar replaces Dr. Tom Price, who resigned from HHS in September after a Politico investigation found that he had taken private charter aircraft on work-related trips at times when cheaper commercial flights were available.Copyright 2018 NPR.

Fathers Day Tributes – MDWashington DC

first_img________________________________________Irwin M. WilsonMy dad is a quiet and humble leader. Our relationship is built on laughter and love. He’s simply amazing. April Richardson Esq. – Financial Crimes Attorney, Federal Deposit Insurance Corporation Dr. G. K. Butterfield Sr. I always admired how even-tempered my father was. He was always polite to everyone he met. My father was a strong man who was involved in my life on a daily basis. I looked at him as my role model and I attribute much of my success to his influence. From an early age, my father taught me the importance of community involvement and showing respect to others, even when they are unpleasant.One memory in particular that I have of my father is him taking me to the 1963 March on Washington. It was at the March that I was exposed to Dr. Martin Luther King, Jr. and other leaders in the civil rights movement. From my relationship with my father, I learned to treat each of my three daughters as individuals. Each daughter has her own personality and I try to adjust my approach with each one based on her personality.G.K. Butterfield – U.S. Congressman (D-NC)________________________________________Ben AliI remember my father, Ben Ali, telling me about his vision for Ben’s Chili Bowl.  In order to ensure shared ownership of the family business, he gave my two brothers and myself all the same middle name: Ben.  Today, we all work together to continue the great legacy of our family enterprise, which my parents founded in 1958.  We called my dad “Big Ben”, and I am constantly amazed by his wonderful foresight and vision.  He and my mom gave so much to our family and to the larger community, and his life continues to inspire us all today!Sage Ben Ali – Co-Owner, Ben’s Chili Bowl________________________________________Gregory BurnettUnconditional love, anticipatory guidance, and active support are the concepts that come to mind when I think of my father. They are also the character traits that describe a good coach, and in one way or another, my father has embodied this role throughout the course of my life. From teaching me the ways of “the beautiful game” to indoctrinating the concept of “Do it now or write it down,” my father has played the role of soccer coach and continues to be a life coach as I get older. Given the unfortunate reality this type of relationship isn’t guaranteed for everyone in society, which makes it all the more special to me.Dr. G. Malik Burnett, MD – Former DC Policy Manager, Office of National Affairs________________________________________Lee Ingram, Jr.What a man what a mighty good man!   My dad is 89 years old and has the strongest constitution of anyone I know.  He was an awesome provider, protector and a praying man. As a young girl I remember my mom driving us to The National Institute of Health to pick up my dad from work. We would run to greet him after his 12 hour shifts.  He retired after 35 years as a public servant.  Not only did he work as a public servant, he owned a taxi and a catering service. Truly the heart of a servant.  A father of 5, and a man on the ministerial staff at his church, he would drag us to senior homes while he would pray and grocery shop for members at the Eastern Star Home and those homebound.  He’d cook meals for senior citizens and teach bible study up until he was 80 and he served as minister of the “Prime Timers”.  That’s my dad Lee Ingram, Jr.Le’Angela Ingram – Principal, ICG International________________________________________Rev. William ClarkMy Father, the late Reverend William Clark, instilled in me that fatherhood is one of the greatest blessings bestowed upon a man. He taught me that it is a responsibility which should be embraced and fulfilled to the best of my ability. It is with that thought, that I cherish the opportunity and blessing, given to me by God, to be the father of an amazing daughter. The gift of fatherhood has consistently provided me with an abundance of joy, more humility, and an everlasting smile. Not only have I been blessed to be the father of my biological child, throughout my educational career, I have been blessed to be a surrogate father to thousands of children.   As a leader and a father, I’ve learned that great leaders, as well as great fathers, must be willing to sacrifice, serve and nurture their own children and family before he can lead or guide anyone.Dr. Marco Clark, PhD – Founder and Chief Executive Officer, Richard Wright Public Charter School________________________________________William R.

Club Med to partner Apex Development in new Krabi project

first_imgClub Med to partner Apex Development in new Krabi projectClub Med to partner Apex Development in new Krabi projectThailand’s Apex Development PCL signed an agreement with Club Med to launch a spectacular new project in Krabi, Thailand.At a signing ceremony hosted by Club Med CEO ‘Xavier DESAULLES’ East Asia and South Asia & Pacific at Club Med Tomamu Hokkaido, Apex Chairman Pongphan Sampawakoopit announced the details of his latest development to assembled media, and explained why Club Med represented the fulfillment of a long-held dream.“Back in the 1990s, about 25 years ago, I first came to know about Club Med,” he recalled. “I went to Kuantan, Malaysia, the very first Club Med to exist in Asia. I was surprised and impressed with the friendly hospitality rendered to all the guests, and all the sports facilities – and more than that, the variety of surprises and entertainment. I feel it was a lot of fun, and I thought to myself that one of these days I would try to develop a resort with Club Med.”“Since then, over the last 25 years I’ve seen many Club Med resorts around the world, and I’ve witnessed the high standards that are still there since day one when I came to know Club Med. So today I feel very happy that my passion has come true with Club Med,” he added.The all-inclusive resort represents an investment of USD 90 million, and is scheduled to open in 2021. The property will offer 300 rooms in a range of categories along with a further 50 suites for the Exclusive Collection. Located on Krabi’s Long Beach, just 30 minutes from the closest international airport, the resort will offer direct beachfront access to guests while providing the exciting variety of sporting activities which have proved so successful in upholding the Club Med concept down the years.Club Med Krabi will become the second Club Med in Thailand, 40 years after the opening of the first in Phuket. The choice of Krabi underlines Club Med’s penchant for expansion into undiscovered yet idyllic destinations, while the company’s focus on green initiatives ensures that the project will be undertaken within the constraints set by Club Med’s Green Globe certification, minimizing any adverse impact upon the beautiful natural site the resort will occupy.While Krabi is anticipated to play an increasingly significant role in Thailand’s tourism sector in the coming years, it is also expected that the collaboration between Apex Development and Club Med will lead to a mutually rewarding partnership combining the reputation of Club Med as a global leader in all-inclusive resorts with the long experience of Apex in developing resorts and residences.Source = Club Medlast_img read more

Gen Xers Shaken From Housing Bust Effects

first_img Generation X Homeownership Housing Bust 2016-04-11 Staff Writer in Daily Dose, Data, Headlines, Market Studies, News Share Gen Xers Shaken From Housing Bust Effectscenter_img April 11, 2016 506 Views There is an interruption occurring in the housing market. Homeowership numbers among Generation X have quickly went from first to last due to lingering effects from the housing bust.Generation X has suffered more than any other age cohort from the housing bust, according to an analysis of federal data and a report from the Wall Street Journal by Chris Kirkham. The report also noted that homeownership rates could remain low for this generation for years to come.Generation X went from the most successful in terms of homeownership rates in 2004 to the least successful by 2015, according to the data and Kirkham’s report.Kirkham says the culprit for this occurrence among Gen Xers is “a historic bull market for housing, fueled in part by easy-to-get mortgages, that encouraged record levels of home buying until the financial system cracked and the housing market collapsed. Earlier generations such as baby boomers, who entered the market before the frenzy of the early 2000s, have fared better.”According to the U.S. Census Bureau, the homeownership rate rose 0.1 percent to 63.8 percent in the fourth quarter of 2015, compared to 63.7 percent last quarter. Despite the rise however, the homeownership rate is 0.2 percent below the rate of 64.0 percent last year during the same period. In addition, although the homeownership rate, while up from a 48-year low in the second quarter of 2015, is still below the peak of 69.2 percent in June 2004.”Today’s Census Homeownership and Vacancy Survey release also provides optimism that the homeownership rate may have hit bottom in 2015,” said Ralph B. McLaughlin, Chief Economist at Trulia. “Many Gen Xers lost their homes during the recession, so this is a positive sign that we may be seeing boomerang buyers coming back into housing market. However, the increase was not statistically significant from a year ago.”The Bureau found that homeownership was highest among those 65 years and older at 79.3 percent int he fourth quarter of 2015, down slightly 79.5 percent in the previous quarter. However, the only age group to increase their homeownership rate was the 35 to 44-year olds, from 58.8 percent in the fourth quarter of last year to 59.3 percent in the fourth quarter of 2015.Capital Economics Property Economist Matthew Pointon added, “That gradual rise in the homeownership rate should continue over the next few years. On the demand side, there are large numbers of young adults who are currently living with their parents. And many of them would like to form their own household. The financial crisis locked them out of homeownership, as they lost their jobs and/or banks refused to provide them with a mortgage. But both factors are now steadily improving. Jobs are being created at a rapid pace, and we expect earnings growth will finally start to rise this year. As well as allowing more households to access homeownership, that will also cut down on mortgage delinquencies and keep more families in their homes.”last_img read more

Fed Raises Rates What Comes Next

first_imgFed Raises Rates; What Comes Next? in Daily Dose, Headlines, News December 14, 2016 685 Views Sharecenter_img Federal Funds Target Rate Federal Reserve FOMC Interest rates 2016-12-14 Seth Welborn For the first time in a year and only the second time in a decade, the Federal Open Market Committee (FOMC), the policy making arm of the Federal Reserve, voted on Wednesday in its eighth and final meeting of the year to raise the federal funds target rate by 25 basis points up to the 0.50 to 0.75 percent range.With the labor market widely considered to be at full employment and the unemployment rate at a post-recession low of 4.6 percent, according to the November Employment Summary from the Bureau of Labor Statistics, members of the FOMC felt the time was appropriate for a rate hike.“In view of realized and expected labor market conditions and inflation, the Committee decided to raise the target range for the federal funds rate to 1/2 to 3/4 percent,” the FOMC said in its statement. “The stance of monetary policy remains accommodative, thereby supporting some further strengthening in labor market conditions and a return to 2 percent inflation.”Analysts in the housing industry have been speculating for weeks as to what the effect of a Fed rate hike would be on mortgage interest rates and overall affordability. In the month prior to the Fed voting to raise the federal funds target rate, the average 30-year FRM rose by more than 50 basis points to a level above 4 percent for the first time in more than a year.“While the Fed’s hike of 0.25 point in short-term interest rates may trickle down to long-term rate products like 30-year mortgages, the more immediate impact will be felt by borrowers with variable-rate mortgages and home equity lines of credit who can expect an increase in their payments at their next rate reset,” said Tim Manni, mortgage expert at NerdWallet. “Homebuyers shouldn’t be particularly concerned with today’s Fed move. Even with rates hovering over 4 percent, they’re still historically low. Most market observers are expecting a gradual rise in home loan rates in the near term, anticipating mortgage rates to stay under 5 percent through 2017. Of course, that’s barring any unforeseen economic event.”Mark Fleming, Chief Economist with First American, estimated that the 25-basis point increase in the federal funds target rate will result in a decline in existing-home sales down to a seasonally-adjusted annual rate of 5.55 million—in October, National Association of Realtors reported an annual rate of 5.60 million for existing-home sales, highest in more than nine years—and that the year-over-year growth rate for nominal price appreciation will fall to 4.0 percent. Also, First American’s Real House Price Index (RHPI), which adjusts prices for purchasing power by considering how interest rates and income levels impact the amount a consumer can borrow, estimates that real house prices will increase by 4.4 percent by December 2017.“In addition to the impact on existing-home sales and house prices, first-time home buyers will feel the most impact of the rate increase,” Fleming said. “In short, real house prices provide a more relevant way to compare changes in affordability over time because they are adjusted for differences in home buyers’ income and the impact of interest rates on financing costs. Increases in real house prices decrease consumer house-buying power and, therefore, affordability by the same amount.” Chief Economist Jonathan Smoke stated, “Today’s Fed announcement is going to have the greatest impact on first time home buyers as they consider their monthly payment budgets. Rates will likely stay the same until about March so buyers considering a purchase in 2017 may want to consider getting into the market now. The Fed—and financial markets—will have to wait to see what comes of U.S. fiscal policies in the weeks and months ahead and how that impacts the economy and the potential for more inflation. Signs point to the Fed raising rates at least three times next year, and just like we’ve seen in the last month, mortgage rates will likely move proportionately in anticipation of those increases, as clear data emerges about stronger economic growth and inflation.”National Association of Federal Credit Unions (NAFCU) Chief Economist Curt Long said that overall, the effect of the 25 basis point on U.S. households should be minimal, but at the same time, “for the millions of savers living on fixed incomes it surely comes as a relief, especially if it is accompanied by a forecast for more in 2017. To that end, the committee’s economic projections may hold more interest than the statement itself,” said Long. “For typical Main Street Americans, the move serves as a reminder to review the rates on their savings and borrowings and to shop around. They may find that even in a low-rate environment there are institutions willing to provide superior rates and higher-quality service than the big Wall Street banks.”Long continued, “The Fed will not make any assumptions about President-elect Trump’s economic agenda. A large spending bill accompanied by tax cuts certainly has the potential to increase growth and inflation, paving the way for faster rate normalization in the coming years. But the Fed will stick to its wait-and-see approach.”last_img read more


first_img Comments   Share   Cardinals expect improving Murphy to contribute right away Much like the majority of NFL fans, the Cardinals themselves are happy to see the situation taken care of.“I’m glad,” head coach Ken Whisenhunt said Thursday. “It’s a tough situation for anybody to be in and I’m glad that the NFL and the referees association got it worked out and they’re back at work.”The Cardinals were nearly victims of an officiating gaffe in Week 1 against Seattle when replacement referee Bruce Hermansen granted the Seahawks an extra timeout on what would have been the go-ahead scoring drive. The Cardinals defense held, and the NFL issued a statement the next day admitting the error.Arizona safety Kerry Rhodes commended the job the replacements did under adverse conditions.“I think everybody’s happy to see those guys back but we don’t want to discount what the replacement guys did,” he said. “For them to come out and have to be put in that situation to ref an NFL game — just the speed of it for them had to be different so, I think they did a good job for the most part. They had some not-so-great moments, but I think that’s just part of it.”Some players, like Larry Fitzgerald, are glad to see the labor issue solved, but are more focused on the big picture for the undefeated Cardinals. Late Wednesday night, the lockout of the NFL officials ended, putting an end to the “replacement ref experiment” that became an increasingly bigger black eye on the league with each passing game.The regular officials, with a new eight-year collective bargaining agreement signed, will be back on the field in time for Week 4 contests, including the Arizona Cardinals-Miami Dolphins matchup Sunday at University of Phoenix Stadium in Glendale. Top Stories “I’m more happy to be 3-0,” he said. “We’ve got to find a way to keep the positive momentum going, but it’s nice to know that the games probably won’t be as slow and calls will be made right.“As a player, I’m happy to see the guys back to work.”Arizona Sports’ Kyndra de St. Aubin contributed to this report D-backs president Derrick Hall: Franchise ‘still focused on Arizona’ What an MLB source said about the D-backs’ trade haul for Greinke Nevada officials reach out to D-backs on potential relocationlast_img read more
