Estate agent becomes an MP

first_imgKevin Hollinrake, Chairman and Co-Founder of Hunters Property Group, has been elected Conservative MP for Thirsk and Malton with a 52.6 per cent share of the vote, replacing Anne McIntosh who stood down ahead of the General Election.Kevin HollinrakeConservatives in the Thirsk and Malton constituency last year chose Hollinrake as their candidate for the General Election, seven years after he was selected to fight the marginal West Yorkshire seat of Dewsbury in 2007, but withdrew for business reasons a year later.Mr Hollinrake (left), from Easingwold, North Yorkshire, recently wrote an exclusive column for The Negotiator magazine, in which he said that it was a “lifetime ambition” to become an MP.He wrote, ‘My parents always encouraged us to take an interest in politics and current affairs and to share our opinions around the dining room table. I did not want to be a career politician, I first wanted to prove that I could be successful in business and think that gives me the credibility and experience to be able to help to improve things at a local and national level.’At Communities and Local Government, Eric Pickles has been replaced by Greg Clark while the Housing Minister, Brandon Lewis (right|), has retained his seat in Great Yarmouth by a majority of 43 per cent, and will continue as Minister for Housing & Planning. There was confusion earlier today, when it was reported that Mark Francois was to replace Lewis. This turned out not to be the case.Grant Shapps was the last Conservative MP to hold the housing post for a significant length of time, acting as Shadow Housing Minister from 2007 to 2010, before being appointed Minister of State for Housing and Local Government when the Tories entered into a coalition Government with the Liberal Democrats, a position he held for a further two years before becoming Conservative Party Chairman in 2012.Conservative MP estate agent May 13, 2015The NegotiatorWhat’s your opinion?

Ocean City Craftsman Blends Old Feel With Modern Amenities

first_imgThis Craftsman style home is going to be built at 125 E. Atlantic Ave. in the prestigious Gardens section of Ocean City for the right buyer. (Courtesy Berkshire Hathaway and Halliday Architects) By Maddy VitaleAt this point, you’ll have to use your imagination for the Jersey Shore dream home that will be built in the heart of the upscale Gardens section of Ocean City.The single-family home, which will sit on a deep lot at 125 E. Atlantic Ave., seamlessly blends old-style seashore charms in a 1920s-era Craftsman design with modern amenities and an open floor plan, homebuyers have come to expect. The three-story house is offered at $2.75 million and boasts six bedrooms and 5½ bathrooms in 3,000 square feet of space. A two-car garage is a major bonus, especially when parking is at a premium in the busy summer tourism season. Front and back decks, a covered patio and an outdoor fireplace that spills into a sizable backyard make it an ideal home for entertaining.  Pete Madden, broker manager/sales associate at Berkshire Hathaway, looks over plans for one of his listings – a Craftsman style home planned for the Gardens section of Ocean City.Pete Madden, broker manager and sales associate at Berkshire Hathaway HomeServices Fox & Roach, 421 Battersea Road, is handling the listing. Madden, who is also president of Ocean City Council, said the property offers a great family residence, with an easy walk to the beach, wide streets that give it openness and a good year-round population. “The Gardens is a very prestigious location,” Madden said in an interview at his office Tuesday. “There are a lot of families in the Gardens. You don’t see a lot of rentals. It is a nice, quiet area, but not far from all the action come the summer.”Another important thing to consider when purchasing a home on the coast is the weather.“There are houses on that street from the early 1900s,” Madden noted. “That street has weathered every storm.” An open living room-dining room concept gives the home an airy feel. (Courtesy Berkshire Hathaway and Halliday Architects)The proposed layout is cozy with a seashore feel, but with plenty of room for family, extended family and guests. With three levels, the first floor offers ample storage and garage space, and the second and third levels offer ample living space.An elevator will also be installed to accommodate everyone comfortably in a multi-level home. Large windows allow lots of natural light. The top floor includes a bonus room.The home plan also blends well with the rest of the residences on E. Atlantic Avenue, Madden said. “The other side of the street has a couple of new families in homes that really keep the classic, seashore look,” he remarked. “There is really a unique mix of homes.” Another major strength of the Gardens, or Ocean City for that matter, is the school system, said Madden, a married father of four. “Ocean City schools are excellent,” he said.Currently, there is a duplex on the property that is going to be demolished in the fall. The completion date for new construction is expected in the Spring of 2019.“Right now, it will be the only new construction for sale on East Atlantic Avenue. It is rare to find a new construction home for sale,” Madden said. “A lot of those houses stay in families for decades. They don’t turn over very often.” He said the earlier a buyer comes in, the more time they will have to make their selections in high-end décor including kitchen appliances, countertops, cabinets and other features.The plan for a kitchen in the Craftsman has clean lines and an open concept for entertaining guests.Shannon Halliday, of Halliday Architects in Ocean City, is the architect.When designing the home, she noted she considered the buyer’s needs of today.“We wanted to give them adequate off-street parking, a manageable size and an open living-dining concept,” Halliday said.The home has not just an en suite bathroom for the master bedroom, but for other bedrooms as well.“It isn’t just the master, it is the junior master and everything after that,” Halliday said of the trend toward more bathrooms. “We have four bedrooms with en suite bathrooms.”Halliday paid special attention to creating a home for everyone to live or visit in comfort. “There is a multi-generation client we are seeing with children and grandchildren. And in a vacation scenario, all of the different generations are getting together,” she said. That is one of the reasons for the elevator, which she said buyers are looking for as an amenity in the multi-level dwellings. The added space on the top floor is for families to create an area for a den, office, kid’s playroom or entertainment area. Four of the six bedrooms comes with its own en suite bathroom. (Courtesy Berkshire Hathaway and Halliday Architects)The exterior of the home has the appearance of the old cedar shake shingles, but it is really fiber cement siding. It comes with a higher price tag, but is more durable, Halliday explained. “It helps create clean lines and strong shadows,” she said. “The exterior materials are high quality and would stand up to the various weather conditions at the shore.”When Halliday fashioned the outside space, she wanted to create a memorable experience for the residents and guests.“It is a beautiful neighborhood,” she said. “Imagine sitting outside enjoying the evening on the patio or by the fire.”For more information about this home, contact Pete Madden at [email protected] or (609) 513-4781.The home will sit on a deep lot and will have three floors with the first for the garage and storage and includes an elevator.

President Trump Considering Short-term Quarantine of New York, Other States

first_imgPhoto: CDCWASHINGTON – President Donald Trump said Saturday that he’s considering a short-term quarantine of New York state, New Jersey, and parts of Connecticut, as cases of coronavirus continue to rise.“We’re thinking about certain things. Some people would like to see New York quarantined because it’s a hotspot. … We might not have to do it, but there’s a possibility that sometime today we’ll do a quarantine, short-term, two weeks on New York. Probably New Jersey, certain parts of Connecticut,” he told reporters as he departed the White House.“I’d rather not do it, but maybe we need it,” the President said.New York Gov. Andrew Cuomo said during a news conference in his state that he spoke with Trump, but that the two had not discussed a quarantine for the state. Cuomo went on to say he didn’t know what such a quarantine would mean. As of Saturday morning, New York had 519 reported deaths due to coronavirus and 4,635 reported cases — making it the state with the most reported cases in the United States.

NAFCU’s Hunt urges DOJ to provide ADA guidance

first_imgDepartment of Justice ShareShareSharePrintMailGooglePinterestDiggRedditStumbleuponDeliciousBufferTumblr continue reading »center_img Following the Supreme Court’s decision against hearing an appeal from Domino’s Pizza – leaving in place a ruling from the U.S. Court of Appeals for the Ninth Circuit that Americans with Disabilities Act (ADA) requirements are applicable to websites and mobile applications – NAFCU’s Carrie Hunt urged the Department of Justice (DOJ) to provide clear guidance for website accessibility standards.The Domino’s case is among a series of court decisions that provided differing opinions on whether – and to what degree – websites must be ADA accessible. With the Supreme Court’s decision to not hear this appeal, uncertainty about the applicability of the ADA to websites continues.“The existing split among courts regarding the applicability of the ADA to websites, and whether a website constitutes a place of public accommodation remains troubling,” wrote Hunt, NAFCU’s executive vice president of government affairs and general counsel, in a letter to the DOJ Tuesday. “This split of authority will likely encourage further lawsuits against the credit union industry, and emphasizes the need for a resolution.”Hunt also noted that credit unions who abide by the Web Content Accessibility Guidelines (WCAG) private industry standard are also at risk of litigation.last_img read more

Wolf Administration’s Food Security Summit Brings Partners Together, Highlights Progress to Combat Hunger

first_img Press Release Harrisburg, PA – The Wolf Administration’s Food Security Partnership today hosted the annual food security summit to update stakeholders, advocates, and federal partners about Pennsylvania’s progress with the Blueprint for a Hunger-Free PA to address food insecurity and discuss work to combat hunger around Pennsylvania.“Food insecurity has overwhelming impacts on so many parts of our society,” said Governor Tom Wolf. “The work that has been done to accomplish necessary steps from the Blueprint is a testament to a government that works together to provide Pennsylvanians the resources to live a healthy and happy life. Everyone should be proud of the work that has been accomplished to date, but we know there is still work to be done to ensure no one lives with chronic hunger.”More than 1.53 million Pennsylvanians experience chronic hunger every day, including 478,500 older Pennsylvanians and about 437,000 children. Since hunger and health are deeply connected, the effects of chronic hunger are profound, including increased risks for chronic diseases, higher chances of hospitalization, poorer overall health, and increased health care costs. Adequate access to healthy meals is also critical to child development and success in education so kids can focus in school and lead healthier, more productive lives.The Supplemental Nutrition Assistance Program (SNAP) is the nation’s most important anti-hunger program, helping 1.8 million Pennsylvanians keep food on their tables. Programs like SNAP and charitable food networks around the commonwealth help working adults, people with disabilities, older adults, and children access food and expand their purchasing power so they do not have to choose between paying for rent or being able to eat dinner.The Wolf Administration is committed to ensuring everyone has access to fresh, healthy food. The Governor’s Food Security Partnership includes the departments of Aging, Agriculture, Community and Economic Development, Education, Health, and Human Services. Since the Governor’s Food Security Partnership released Setting the Table: A Blueprint for a Hunger-Free PA in 2016, the Partnership and charitable food partners have made significant impacts in our communities in the past three years. The role of charitable food organizations played an essential role in improving access to local food resources and increasing awareness of food insecurity.This year alone, the Wolf Administration increased opportunities for Pennsylvanians by:• Supporting partnerships with 14 employment and training providers and continuing to establish new partnerships in order to meet a goal of expanding to 30 SNAP 50/50 training sites by end of year;• Assisting more than 400,000 elderly or disabled individuals currently receiving benefits due to the Elderly/Disabled Simplified Application Project (ESAP) resulting in a 10 percent increase in eligible seniors receiving SNAP benefits;• Identifying 26 local food alliances or food policy councils to convene on best practices to combat hunger in local communities;• Increasing average daily breakfast participation statewide by 8.4 percent and total breakfast participation by 3.6 percent;• Providing more than 2.8 million congregate meals at senior centers and more than 6.1 million home delivered meals;• Distributing $500,000 in mini-grants to expand alternative breakfast models in schools;• Improving redemption rates for the Women, Infants and Children (WIC) and the Senior Farmers Market Nutrition Program by launching a mobile application to help eligible Pennsylvanians find fresh, locally grown produce at participating farmers markets;• Combating stigma by rebranding SNAP marketing materials for seniors and redesigning the SNAP EBT card so people are not intimidated to redeem their benefits; and• Fighting federal proposals to cut SNAP eligibility to low-income elderly, children and working families.“If we want to build strong communities and break the cycle of intergenerational poverty, then we must invest in people, and this means supporting programs like SNAP so we do not put unsustainable strain on our charitable food networks and force more people to go hungry,” said Human Services Secretary Teresa Miller. “We will continue to make progress towards the Blueprint’s goals, and we will do everything we can to support access to fresh, healthy foods and fight chronic hunger in communities around Pennsylvania.”For more information on the Governor’s Food Security Partnership and food assistance programs, visit www.dhs.pa.gov.

Mane, Oshoala fully deserving of their gongs – Pinnick

first_imgRelatedPosts Mane double eases Liverpool to win over 10-man Chelsea Oshoala visits Lagos Oba Nigeria plan Cote d’Ivoire, Tunisia friendlies The President of the Nigeria Football Federation, Amaju Melvin Pinnick, has declared African Men’s Player of the Year, Sadio Mane of Senegal, and Women’s Player of the Year, Nigeria’s Asisat Oshoala, as fully deserving of their honours at the 2019 CAF Football Awards ceremony in Hurghada, Egypt on Tuesday night. The NFF supremo, who is a Member of the CAF Executive Committee and Member of the influential Organizing Committee for FIFA Competitions, praised both football stars for their integrity, high-level commitment to club and country, discipline, dedication and good heart, and their love of the game and the different societies they hail from. Pinnick said: “There is no doubt that both players deserve their awards. Mane has been very consistent for a number of years and has worked hard to improve himself in all areas of his game, and I must say the same goes for Asisat Oshoala, who has also been an impact player for FC Barcelona Ladies within the short time that she arrived at the club. “Mane and Oshoala have also been role models in their native communities with their commitment and investment in charity causes. I congratulate both players and urge them to continue to improve as they strive for excellence in all areas.” While Mane’s honour was his first, Oshoala picked up her fourth African Women’s Player of the Year title, adding to wins in 2014, 2016 and 2017, and equalling compatriot Perpetua Nkwocha at the top of the all-time list. Senegalese Mane and the Nigerian Oshoala were the big winners on a colourful night at the Albatros Citadel Sahl Hasheesh, Hurghada, with Moroccan Achraf Hakimi picking up the gong for Youth Player of the Year and South African Desire Ellis emerging the Women’s Coach of the Year. Djamel Belmadi, who in the summer of last year led Algeria to only her second AFCON title, was named Men’s Coach of the Year. Algeria duly won the Men’s Team of the Year and Cameroon the Women’s Team of the Year, among others.Tags: Amaju PinnickAsisat OshoalaSadio Manelast_img read more
