Proceedures and appointments cancelled again at UHL Twitter No vaccines in Limerick yet Surgeries and clinic cancellations extended Facebook RELATED ARTICLESMORE FROM AUTHOR by Andrew [email protected] up for the weekly Limerick Post newsletter Sign Up A LIMERICK creche worker will be sentenced in the New Year after she admitted having a sub-machine gun stored in her home because she had financial difficulties and needed the money.Celine O’Riordan with a former address at Cliona Park admitted having the weapon and 13 rounds of 9mm ammunition in a bin outside her home in July of last year.During the sentencing hearing at Limerick Circuit Court, Judge Tom O’Donnell was told that the mother of one was approached by an unidentified person and offered €300 to store the gun for a short period.Ms O’Riordan hid the weapon and ammunition in her bedroom wardrobe after it was dropped outside the door of her home.She was told that someone would be along to collect the gun a few days later.She removed the Mac 10 gun from her bedroom wardrobe, wrapped it in a pillow case and a Supervalu bag and put it in the bin outside her home.When it was found by Gardaí executing a search warrant, she explained her version of events. However, detectives didn’t believe her as it was clear to them that the gun was being stored in the bin and was not discarded.The court heard from Ms O’Riordan’s father who said she was vulnerable, had no previous convictions and that this was not in character.“I took her out of that situation and she is not a danger to anybody or never was”, he said.Adjourning the case to February 12, Judge O’Donnell said that “given the bizare set of circumstances, he wanted a probation report to “get the full picture before finalising the matter”.

Share via Shortlink Share on FacebookShare on TwitterShare on LinkedinShare via Email Share via Shortlink Email Address* Message* Full Name* The dispute over the project first entered the public eye in October, when Rosen’s firm filed a lawsuit accusing Vanke of making a “backdoor deal” with Industrial and Commercial Bank of China that gave it an interest in both sides of the $360 million construction loan that defaulted in May.In response, Vanke claimed that RFR was intentionally sabotaging the project in order to extract an “exorbitant buyout” of its minority stake — a strategy that had already begun before the pandemic, with the refusal to fund the December 2019 capital call.In filings in the ongoing lawsuit, RFR’s lawyers acknowledge that the company has not made any capital contributions since December 2019, after informing Vanke that “it made no economic sense to contribute such funds without a plan to address the upcoming [May 2020] maturity.” But they note that “the failure to fund a capital call cannot be a ‘For Cause’ event” that would allow Vanke to remove RFR from the partnership, according to the LLC agreement.Vanke’s lawyers accept that the capital call issue alone is not enough to remove RFR from the project, but argue that it reflects a broader pattern of bad behavior.“RFR’s abject failure to provide much needed capital to the company in a time of distress (to avoid default) demonstrates that RFR does not have the company’s interests in mind and is committed to starving the project of needed capital in order to force a buyout,” they wrote in a March memorandum.Both RFR and Vanke have issued capital calls for additional funds to cover expenses at the project over the past year, according to court filings.Contact Kevin Sun Tags From left: Vanke US managing director Kai-yan Lee, 100 East 53rd Street and RFR’s Aby Rosen (Photos via Foster + Partners and Getty)Vanke US has opened up a new front in its ongoing battle with RFR Holding over control of a Midtown condo tower project that defaulted on its construction loan last year.The company, which is the U.S. subsidiary of one of China’s largest real estate developers, is seeking a judgment of nearly $680,000 against RFR co-founders Aby Rosen and Michael Fuchs according to a new lawsuit filed in New York County Supreme Court.That sum stems from RFR’s failure to meet capital calls beginning in December 2019, for which Rosen and Fuchs “irrevocably, absolutely, and unconditionally guaranteed the payment and performance,” according to an affidavit from Vanke US managing director Kai-yan Lee.According to the joint venture agreement between Vanke and RFR, Vanke was required to fund 93 percent of each capital call while RFR would fund the remaining 7 percent — reflecting the partners’ respective stakes in the JV behind the 63-story, 94-unit development at 100 East 53rd Street.ADVERTISEMENTWhile Vanke has continued to fund its share, RFR has refused to do so — with unpaid contributions now totaling more than $590,000, plus over $88,000 in accrued interest, according to the suit. Most of the amount owed comes from the December 2019 capital call, for which RFR was supposed to pay $408,800 per Vanke’s calculations.Representatives for Vanke and RFR did not respond to requests for comment.Read moreVanke seeks to remove RFR from Midtown condo project Aby Rosen accuses Chinese partner of “power grab” after condo loan default 2019: Aby Rosen’s 100 East 53rd is banking on fresh momentum Aby RosenReal Estate LawsuitsRFR Holding
Home » News » Watch out, there’s a review about! ‘TripAdvisor’ for student accommodation rolls out across UK previous nextProducts & ServicesWatch out, there’s a review about! ‘TripAdvisor’ for student accommodation rolls out across UKCribAdvisor was launched in July by two students in their adopted home city of Lincoln and will now be launched in other UK university cities.Nigel Lewis15th November 20190809 Views A reviews website for student accommodation landlords and letting agents launched in Lincoln this year has been so successful that it is to be rolled out across the UK.CribAdvisor is a TripAdvisor for student tenants which enables them to leave anonymous reviews about landlords and letting agents.The site has already attracted 450 reviews for properties in Lincoln, which is where founders Natasha Hopewell and Lawrence Thorpe completed their degrees.Although reviewers are able to leave moderated but anonymous comments about landlords or letting agents, they must register on the site using a valid student email address. Those they criticise have a right to reply.The idea for their website – which is a familiar one – came after battling a letting agent in their third year over a dispute which they only won after promising to sign a non-disclosure agreement.Hot waterHopewell claims one of her rental properties featured a broken hot water boiler that took weeks to fix and maintenance and letting agent staff who let themselves in without warning.Following these experiences, Hopewell has told The Guardian that she wants to “improve the standards of [rented properties] by giving students the tools to take control of their tenancies and demand from their providers,” she says.“Students renters are first-time renters. We are naive and inexperienced, with no idea of what to expect, our rights or what to do when things go wrong. Providers take advantage of students because they think they can get away it.”Lincoln is a hotbed for property service innovation. Earlier this year specialist student lettings firm Student Lets started up in the the city, and fast-growing hybrid agency Accommodation.co.uk was initially based there.Read more about Lincoln.CribAdvisor Natasha Hopewell City of Lincoln student accommodation November 15, 2019Nigel LewisWhat’s your opinion?

IS IT TRUE that today we shall examine the claim of “explosive growth” made by Mayor Winnecke in the State of the City address with references from the United States census?…we will start by visiting just what “explosive growth” is?IS IT TRUE that Mayor Winnecke brought out a term that hasn’t been associated with Evansville for at least half a century?…the term chosen by our Mayor in the State of the City address to describe what is happening in Evansville was “explosive growth”?…we wonder just what the heck Mayor Winnecke thinks that “explosive growth” means because to any layman in the streets growth of any kind is just not that apparent?…the best definition we could find was to describe explosive growth as “an abrupt positive change of significant magnitude”?…in order to examine the growth that may have occurred we consulted the federal governments repository for such information?…that is the website for the United States Census that has official 2010 counts and approximations from 2015?…the following data is for a FIVE YEAR PERIOD?IS IT TRUE that the population of the City of Evansville actually shrunk from 2010 to 2015 by 0.1% from 120,081 to 119,943?…when it comes to population the growth is negative which is more associated with the term implosive than it is with explosive?…in spite of the pollyanaish claim of explosive growth the reality is that Evansville has less people than it did 70 years ago by roughly 25,000 people and if it were not for annexation the number of the loss would approach 40,000?…that over and over the numbers associated with the economics in Evansville display nothing that could be considered to be anything other than tepid growth or negative growth?…income is stagnant, housing values have not increased significantly for 20 years, the labor participation rate languishes in the low 62% range! and while the “misery index” has improved, we are still in the bottom quartile?IS IT TRUE that it is a well known fact that the highly touted crown jewel of downtown Evansville, Ford Center is losing money to the tune of $9 Million per year below what former Evansville Mayor Weinzapfel’s masters of the universe said it would?…furthermore the plethora of big musical acts that never played Roberts Stadium but would beg to play downtown haven’t?…the number of businesses downtown is still about the same as it was before the Ford Center opened?…that has now been nearly 6 years so the bugs should be worked out of the magic medicine that the traveling medicine show said they planted?…to believe that Evansville is experiencing explosive growth is about as silly as thinking a chicken fat video would shape us all up?…it is delusional to think such things and disingenuous to say such things?IS IT TRUE that the Hillco Real Estate group is offering all 88 of the HH Gregg Stores inventory and leasehold properties in a public auction?…the entire chain if HH Gregg stores have filed for bankruptcy and are being liquidated rapidly?…the management and owners did try to find a buyer but not one interested party came forth?…HH Gregg came to Evansville into the space formerly occupied by Circuit City which filed for bankruptcy as well?…this is just another of the death march of big box retailers from the marketplace?…the prognosticators on CNBC are projecting that over 8,600 retail stores will close this year in the United States which is more than double the largest number that we have ever seen close in a single year?…we can thank the conveniences brought to us by big online retailers like Amazon?…this will truly be seen as the year that big box retail became obsolete and the malls started to search for other ways to maintain relevance?FOOTNOTE: Todays “READERS POLL” question is: Do you feel that the taxpayers of Evansville should spend another dollar to subside Ice Hockey at the Ford Center?We urge you to take time and click the section we have reserved for the daily recaps of the activities of our local Law Enforcement professionals.

Can we afford to hand over our Constitution to be rewritten? The First Amendment clearly states that Congress is forbidden to make any law abridging either freedom of speech or freedom of the press. However, it’s very much on their agenda to alter the wording of the Second Amendment in order to “clarify” its language for how they want it to read. Will this change the amendment or eliminate it? That depends on how they favor to make these changes. One supporter wrote, “What’s needed is a way for the states to have the power to overturn Supreme Court decisions … a constitutional amendment could be written, for example, allowing a three-fifths vote of the state legislatures to challenge court decisions.” Once the convention is graveled to order, any and all parts of the Constitution would be open to change. Will the 38-state ratification process protect us from bad amendments being passed? One only need look at history to find the answer is no.Who attends this convention? Any sitting or former member of Congress, judges, or legislators can be delegates. This means there could be a group of people serving there making compromises with each other to get the amendments they want passed voted out to the states. It’s an unpredictable situation.All Americans should let the elected officials know that they are expected to support our republic and thus avoid an Article V Convention.

Since 1787, America has chosen to avoid the risk of a new convention that could rewrite our Constitution and Bill of Rights. Now 28 state legislatures want this. If just six more states apply, Congress will be forced to call an Article V Convention.
