Apopka Burglary Report

first_img Reply The Anatomy of Fear I have just watched the You Tube video of “Country Star, Randy Travis’ Nude DUI Arrest”…..caught by the cop car’s dash cam in Texas, as he was heading to jail in the cop car….I am having a serious good laugh after watching that, at poor ol’ Randy’s expense, but it is so hilarious! The poor guy did suffer a very serious stroke about a year after this, and he has had a very trying time, it might of been caused by the injuries, in the wreck, when he was drinking, driving, and drunk, don’t know….he had been fighting to keep the video from the public, but he didn’t succeed, and now it is being shown to the public. Poor Randy. Support conservation and fish with NEW Florida specialty license plate Please enter your comment! Thugs on the prowl….too many vehicle burglaries for one week’s time period!

Mouritz Botha crunches Jean Deysel in Saracens vs Sharks friendly

first_imgMonday Jan 27, 2014 Mouritz Botha crunches Jean Deysel in Saracens vs Sharks friendly Saracens beat the Sharks 23-15 in Saturday’s friendly Super Rugby warmup game for the Currie Cup champions. Both teams were extremely physical at Allianz Park, so here is one of the biggest hits of the game, plus a compilation of some of the others.ADVERTISEMENTIt was billed as a friendly but there was no love lost out there as both sides looked like they had something to prove, with cross-hemisphere rivalries coming to the fore, as well as a few old friends getting reaquainted. Saracens do have a decent South African contingent after all.One of those is big lock Mouritz Botha, who seemed to enjoy the physical tussle with the big Sharks players. His heavyweight clash with wrecking-ball Jean Deysel was brutal, even if Deysel was sold by an unforgiving pass from his scrum half.“I love it when big lads just run straight at you, and they had some really big, physical guys playing for them. It was just a great day and I really enjoyed myself out of there today,” said Botha.Both sides made impressive big tackles and charges, with Deysel and Willem Alberts particularly prominent. View a compilation of the rough stuff on page two of this post, the match highlights on page three and Botha’s thumping tackle on Deysel below.Should these type of fixtures be played more regularly?ADVERTISEMENTAll the big hits and charges from a very physical encounter between the two sides.

first_img 2008 Products used in this ProjectFaucetsDornbrachtKitchen Fittings – Tara ClassicText description provided by the architects. Wedged into a tight lot along Lake Candlewood in New Fairfield, Connecticut, this new home’s form and structure was derived from observations of trees and an adaptation of local building techniques. The project began with studies of leaf canopies, accumulated ring structures, and the dappled light that filters through groups of trees. Multiple study models in several media (concrete, acrylic, wood, plaster), investigated how light flows through perforations in these various materials. We used these models to observe, secondarily, how certain materials would be suited to creating a stable, discrete, but minimal structure. During the formative process we were interested in designing a house that seemed in large part to float and protect, much like the tree canopies on the site shelter the ground beneath them. Save this picture!© Richard BarnesThe final design, a house of 5,400 square feet, involved an intense collaboration with Guy Nordenson and Associates, Structural Engineers. Together we developed a unique structural system of long-span ¾” x 16” x 27’ plywood joists which work in tandem with a series of steel Verendiel trusses that rest on solid billets of steel. The joists, made from scarf-jointed Douglas fir, assembled into 4’ wide panels using steel stiffening pipes to join and stabilize the plywood before being lifted into place. The slim columns on which the steel truss structure and this joist system rest support the cantilevered volumes which are clad in red cedar. This cedar is deployed on the exterior in two different techniques: First, it is installed with a vertical board and batten technique to exaggerate the appearance that the house was assembled as a series of stacked pieces, like the rings of a tree. On obverse faces the wood is installed in a jointless tongue and groove fashion. Save this picture!© Richard BarnesOrganized around the central double-height volume spanned by the special long-span wood joists, the ground floor is primarily wrapped in monumental sliding glass panels, opening up the house and connecting the inside, quite literally, to the outside. The mobility of these panels exaggerates the weight of the two cantilevered volumes above. Save this picture!© Richard BarnesUpstairs, two cantilevers contain the bedrooms. These spaces jut out over the lake like the prow of a boat and protrude into the surrounding trees themselves. Carefully located skylights illuminate the great room and each of the upstairs spaces, as if light were coming through gaps in tree branches.Save this picture!© Richard BarnesProject gallerySee allShow lessOMA’s Arts District Master Plan UnveiledArticlesTowards an Architecture of Open and Flexible Systems / Emilio MarinArticles Share Photographs:  Richard Barnes Manufacturers Brands with products used in this architecture project CopyAbout this officeDella Valle BernheimerOfficeFollowProductsWoodConcrete#TagsProjectsBuilt ProjectsSelected ProjectsResidential ArchitectureHousesWoodHousesUnited StatesPublished on August 23, 2010Cite: “Artreehoose / Della Valle Bernheimer” 23 Aug 2010.

Indiana Welcomes FFA Convention Home

first_img Indiana Welcomes FFA Convention Home Facebook Twitter Facebook Twitter SHARE By Gary Truitt – Oct 13, 2016 Home Indiana Agriculture News Indiana Welcomes FFA Convention Home SHARE Indiana Welcomes FFA Convention HomeJane Ade StevensIn just a matter of days, a sea of blue and gold will flow through the streets of Indianapolis as the National FFA convention returns to the Hoosier State. “It didn’t seem right when they left, and we are so glad they are back” is how Jane Stevens, with the Indiana Soybean Alliance and Indiana Corn, summed up the feelings of the Indiana farm community about the return of the convention to the circle city.  She told HAT these FFA students represent the future of American agriculture, “I look at these young people and know they are the future farmers, the future scientists, the future vets. These are the people who are going to figure out how we are going to feed the rest of the world.”National FFA President Taylor McNeel says FFA is thrilled to be back in the Hoosier State, “We are hoping to have another record-setting year in attendance. Last year we had 65,000, and we hope even more will come this year to Indianapolis.” After being in Louisville last year, the nation’s largest youth convention will be in Indianapolis for the next 9 years.The theme of this year’s convention is transformation. “Transform is what we hope FFA members will do in their life,” said McNeel. “Also transform agriculture with all the different production methods we have today and will have in the future.” The organization is also transforming as a larger number of its members now come from non-farm backgrounds.A day  of service will kick off the convention next week as FFA members give thousands of hours of service to organizations in Indiana. On Thursday, several groups began a service project cleaning up planters on Georgia Street, which has been renamed FFA Way during the convention.  At a press conference on George Street, state and city officials officially welcomed the FFA and spoke highly of the contribution the organization makes to the city and the state.Listen for coverage all next week at Coverage is made  possible by Beck’s Hybrids. Beck’s salutes the FFA and its members.

Limerick loses ground-breaking humanitarian leader

first_imgFr Finucane formally retired in 2002 but never stopped working for Concern. In 2004, without hesitation, he abandoned all plans for the summer and flew to Sudan to lead Concern’s response to the Darfur crisis and later went on to oversee Concern’s operations in tsunami-affected Sri Lanka. Throughout, he remained passionate and engaged in everything to do with Concern including serving on the board of Concern Worldwide US.Active to the end, Fr Finucane walked around Inishturk Island, off the coast of Galway a few weeks ago with 70 Concern volunteers he had worked with over the years.

Jack Finucane pictured in Somalia.Father Jack Finucane, one of Ireland’s leading humanitarians, has passed away at the age of 80.Born in Limerick in 1937 and ordained a priest in 1963, Fr Finucane was sent to Nigeria with the Holy Ghost Fathers and was at the heart of the distribution of aid flown into Biafra by Concern and other relief organisations. Following the surrender of Biafra, he was arrested by the Nigerian authorities and spent several weeks in prison before being deported.Sign up for the weekly Limerick Post newsletter Sign Up During the 1984 famine in Ethiopia Fr Finucane’s knowledge of the country and his considerable diplomatic skills enabled Concern to mount a massive response to the crisis. By the time that famine received worldwide attention, Concern had a team of 46 expatriates and 890 national staff on the ground. Fr Finucane was an advisor to Bob Geldof and his Live Aid team and in 1985, he brought a young Bono on his first trip to Ethiopia, the singer has since credited him with having a huge influence on his thinking with regard to international development.Speaking about the life of Fr Finucane, CEO of Concern Worldwide, Dominic MacSorley, remarked: “An unassuming leader, he brought intelligence, drive and passion to what is now Ireland’s leading humanitarian and development organisation. Along with his brother, Aengus, they were a bridge between Ireland’s long tradition of missionary work defining contemporary humanitarian response characterised by professional, practical, compassionate solutions on the ground. Together, they brought a nation with them.The late Fr Jack Finucane who died this week“What Jack has achieved may never be fully quantified but he has saved and improved the lives of millions of people caught up in crisis and poverty. Sorely missed, he leaves behind a legacy of incredible humanitarian significance.”Paying tribute, President Michael D. Higgins, said, “It is with great sadness that I have learned of the death of Fr Jack Finucane. Jack and his late brother Fr Aengus Finucane were inspirational figures and their life’s work leaves a real, positive and enduring legacy for millions of people across the globe, as well as having contributed to Ireland’s reputation abroad in the best possible sense.”Mayor Kieran O’Hanlon also paid tribute to one of Limerick’s great ambassadors, “On behalf of the people of Limerick, I would like to offer condolences to the Finucane family on the death of Fr Jack. His work with those from developing countries is unsurpassed.  From the Biafran region in Nigeria to Bangladesh and Ethiopia, Fr Jack has tended to some of the poorest people in the world. He co-founded Concern in 1968 along with his brother Fr Aengus, Fr Raymond Kennedy as well as John and Kay O’Loughlin Kennedy.  This is a charity which has stood the test of time and is a by word for professionalism and caring.”Limerick Bishop, Brendan Leahy, offered his own touching testimony to a man he greatly admired, “In life there are many people placed on pedestals, people we consider, and rightly so, heroes. We all need people to look up to.  But it is no exaggeration to say that Fr. Jack Finucane was the embodiment of what it means to be a hero – someone who protects and defends.“His work and achievements with his brother, the late Fr. Jack Finucane, and others with Concern were remarkable in any context, helping to bring it from a small organisation into a global force that today represents the triumphs of human spirit in how it helps the poorest people right across the world. The late Fr Aengus Finucane who died in 2009 and his brother Fr Jack Finucane who died this week photograhed when they were awarded the Freedom of the Limerick City“I was also interested to hear that despite leaving Limerick at the age of 18, Limerick never left him.  He remained at all times in touch with what was going on here, not least on the sporting front.“It is also heartwarming today to hear of just how proud he was of being a priest.  He had a calling and answered it.  Not just that, he fulfilled everything possible that could be expected of one man or woman’s calling.  A beautiful characteristic also was that, by all accounts, he was extremely modest, never looking for attention for, or boasting about, his very considerable achievements,” Bishop Leahy concluded.

Freddie Mac to Seek Punitive Damages in Deloitte Lawsuit, Report Says

He served as sports editor for two suburban newspaper chains in the DFW area and has freelanced for such publications as the Yahoo!

He has written four non-fiction sports books, the latest of which, The Life of Coach Chuck Curtis, was published by the TCU Press in December 2014. A lifelong Texan, Brian received his master’s degree from Amberton University in Garland. Government-sponsored mortgage giant Freddie Mac has decided to seek punitive damages in its $1.3 billion lawsuit filed against accounting firm Deloitte & Touche over some mortgage loans the GSE purchased from now-defunct mortgage servicer Taylor Bean & Whitaker, according to media reports.Freddie Mac’s lawyers accused Deloitte of “gross negligence” with regards to the purchased mortgage loans in an amended complaint that was unsealed Monday, according to the reports.When reached by email, a spokesman from Freddie Mac declined to comment on the lawsuit and would not specify how much more than the original suit amount of $1.3 billion that the GSE would seek from Deloitte in punitive damages.Freddie Mac sued Deloitte for $1.3 billion in a Florida court in September 2014 with regards to fraudulent mortgage loans the GSE purchased from Taylor Bean & Whitaker, according to reports. Freddie Mac says it would not have purchased those mortgage loans from Taylor Bean if Deloitte, which audited Freddie Mac from 2002 to 2009, had paid attention to red flags which indicated fraud.Freddie Mac claims that Deloitte’s negligence cost the GSE $1.3 billion. Freddie Mac was taken over by the government in September 2008 at the height of the financial crisis, and along with its fellow GSE, Fannie Mae, needed a $188 billion bailout from the government to stay afloat.Taylor Bean, which was once the largest non-bank mortgage servicer in the nation, filed for bankruptcy in 2009. In 2011, Taylor Bean’s chairman, Lee Farkas, was sentenced to 30 years in prison for fraud.

Demand Propels Home Prices Upward 2 days ago in Daily Dose, Featured, Market Studies, News About Author: Christina Hughes Babb House Hunters Face Fierce Bidding Wars Data Provider Black Knight to Acquire Top of Mind 2 days ago Governmental Measures Target Expanded Access to Affordable Housing 2 days ago March 26, 2021 1,274 Views House hunters, especially those seeking a higher-end single-family home, should be prepared for some fierce competition.It is nothing new.Countrywide, 60.9% of home offers written by Redfin agents in February faced competition, up a little from  59.3% in January—that makes 10 straight months in which more than half of Redfin offers encountered competition.Indeed, bidders have been battling one another throughout the pandemic, as they face heightened demand for larger single-family residences, dwindling inventory, and increased desirability brought on by lower-than-ever interest rates.Even as interest rates inch up, the want for homes continues to increase, according to the latest data from Redfin.”The uptick in mortgage rates is likely fueling more bidding wars in the short term because house hunters are rushing to buy homes before rates rise even further,” said Redfin Chief Economist Daryl Fairweather. “If mortgage rates move significantly higher, we’ll likely see some buyers move to the sidelines, which will curb competition in the long run.”Redfin reports that buyer battles today are more intense than any of its agents have seen in the past, with the most attractive houses receiving dozens of offers, selling at breakneck speed and for tens of thousands of dollars above the asking price.Rapid sales and buyers’ willingness to pay so much more than the listed price is a sure sign of a market that doesn’t seem to be cooling.In February, homes essentially went under contract in 32 days—23 days faster than a year earlier—and a record 36% of homes went for more than their asking prices, Redfin reported.“Every home I put on the market for under $700,000 is selling in a day,” said Heather Kruayai, a Redfin real estate agent in Jacksonville, FL. “I recently listed a three-bedroom single-family house in Durbin Crossing that got 30 offers. I’ve never seen that in my life. We had to stop showings because the sellers just couldn’t accommodate that many people coming through their house. Buyers were calling me up themselves and pleading with me to pick their offers. My client ultimately chose the bidder who had the highest offer and agreed to pay the difference if the appraisal came in lower than the contract price.”Redfin’s data determined that Salt Lake City, Utah; San Diego; Phoenix, Arizona; Denver; and San Francisco were the most competitive markets in America.“You have to pull out all of the stops. Successful buyers are offering $30,000 to $50,000 over the asking price, limiting or waiving inspections, offering free rent-back, and agreeing to make up the difference in the event of a low appraisal,” said Monica Arnett, a Redfin real estate agent in Denver.  “I had one client offer $800,000 in cash on a $750,000 listing. They were outbid by someone who offered $900,000.”Redfin researchers recently examined strategies homebuying hopefuls and their agents can embrace to better their chances of winning when a bidding war breaks out.One of the best ways to come out on top, Redfin found, is to make an all-cash offer, which, researchers say, almost quadruples a prospective buyer’s chances, raising the odds by 290%. Waiving the financing contingency also is an effective strategy,  improving homebuyers’ odds of winning by 66%, according to an analysis of data on thousands of offers written by Redfin agents on behalf of their homebuying clients from July 2020 to February 2021.For the full reports, visit  The Best Markets For Residential Property Investors 2 days ago Servicers Navigate the Post-Pandemic World 2 days ago Governmental Measures Target Expanded Access to Affordable Housing 2 days ago Demand Propels Home Prices Upward 2 days ago Share Save Related Articleslast_img read more
