ELULS prepares legal aid lawyers for hurricanes

first_img November 1, 2006 Regular News ELULS prepares legal aid lawyers for hurricanes ELULS prepares legal aid lawyers for hurricanescenter_img A small but enthusiastic group of legal aid attorneys, law students, and citizen activists gathered in Pensacola recently to confront issues facing Florida communities during post-hurricane rebuilding.A joint project of Florida Legal Services and the Access to Justice Subcommittee of the Bar’s Public Interest Committee of the Environmental and Land Use Law Section, the workshop “Environmental Justice – In the Aftermath: A Look at the Effect of Hurricanes on the Environment and Affordable Housing” aimed to bring awareness to attorneys serving the poor of the disparity of storm environmental impacts. The workshop also tried to provide those attorneys with tools needed to identify similar issues with their clients and to properly address them.Featured speakers included Leslie Powell and Rocky Cabagnot of Legal Services of North Florida; Francine Ishmael of Citizens Against Toxic Exposure, Inc.; Howard Jones of Holley Action Group; Marilyn Kershner of Florida Community Loan Fund; Nicole Kibert of Carlton Fields; Deborah Schroth of Florida Legal Services; Randall Webster of Sapient Consultant Group; and Jeanne Zokovitch of WildLaw. They touched on a number of topics, including disposal of construction debris, green building, and the inclusion of affordable housing in rebuilding efforts.“I have never had such a good time listening to so much bad news,” said Barbara Curbelo Cusack. “I am motivated to research more about these issues.”The Florida Bar Foundation underwrote the majority of the costs for the CLE-accredited workshop, enabling participants to attend for a nominal fee. Plans are in the works to repeat the workshop in other locations.Attorneys and law students with an interest in environmental justice may visit the ELULS Web site at www.eluls.org for more information on upcoming workshops. Other resources are available on the Web site, including basic information intended for practitioners outside of the environmental field and the general public.last_img read more

St. Cloud State defeats Minnesota 3-2 for series sweep

first_imgMinnesota, in its first series against a ranked opponent this season, played an inconsistent game that resulted in two comebacks, and ultimately resulted in a winless weekend for the Gophers. The game began with sophomore forward Jack Ramsey scoring his first goal of the season 2:27 into the first period. Taylor Cammarata added to the lead with a power-play goal with nearly a minute remaining in the first period, at which point, the energy at the Herb Brooks National Hockey Center was at its lowest all game.Cammarata, who had one of the better performances on the ice tonight, also scored his first goal of the season. “It feels good,” Cammarata said. “[It’s] nice to get that first goal, so it helped me have a pretty good game.”The Gophers and Huskies each scored one power-play goal Saturday night.St. Cloud State ended up with the advantage in shots again tonight, this time by a slimmer margin of 33-31.“I think it’s a step back when you lose two games,” Lucia said. “You’re ahead going into the third in one, and tied going into the third in the other, you’ve got to win third periods. That’s the big takeaway.” St. Cloud State defeats Minnesota 3-2 for series sweepMinnesota had a 2-0 lead at the end of the first periodMaddy FoxGophers forward Leon Bristedt assists forward Taylor Cammarata with his first period goal against St. Cloud State at Mariucci Arena on Oct. 21, 2016.

Daily Postcard: Full Harvest Moon Aglow Among Branches

first_imgThe full moon spotted in the early hours Thursday in White Rock. October has two full moons this year: the full Harvest Moon of Oct. 1 and the full Hunter’s Moon Oct. 31—Halloween! Halloween’s full moon will be extra special, since it will be the second of the month and, therefore, a “Blue Moon’. Despite all the creative Halloween full moon pictures, a full moon occurring on Halloween is not a common occurrence and only happens every 18 to 19 years. Halloween—also known as All Hallows’ Eve—always occurs Oct. 31; it’s the only day of the week that changes from year to year. According to NASA, a blue moon occurs about seven times every 19 years.

£30,000,000 up for grabs – search for property entrepreneurs starts here.

first_imgThe brightest property talents in the country are invited to compete for packages worth up to £10m each. The millions will be awarded to three property entrepreneurs from three regions – the south and Wales, the Midlands and East Anglia, and Scotland and the north –whom our judges believe have what it takes to be the stuff that headlines are made of. The prizes come free of interest for three years, which could save each winner around £1.5m.This revolutionary competition is the largest investment in real estate promotion by any bank and follows a highly successful model pioneered by the bank last year for the wider business world with The Sunday Times. Are you full of entrepreneurial spirit? Maybe you have groundbreaking plans, but need the cash to make them a reality? Perhaps you believe you are the next Nick Leslau or Kevin McCabe? If you have what it takes, then we have the money to make your dreams come true. As well as the three £10m prizes, one overall national winner will receive four days of mentoring from chairman of judges Nick Leslau. Winning up to £10m in the Bank of Scotland Corporate £30m Search for Property Entrepreneurs could give you an essential leg-up. The global credit crunch has made banks more cautious about lending on property, and many have withdrawn from the sector altogether.In its last announcement on the allocation of commercial lending, last September, the Bank of England announced that 15.5% of all commercial lending had gone into property, the highest percentage since the early 1990s. This rampant lending has made way now for a much thriftier scene. Although large banks such as HBOS are still lending on property, getting your hands on the money you need to make your business fly has become much more difficult. The three regional winners can use up to £10m to finance one or more property deals. Up to £5m of the funding can be used to finance existing debt. Winners have 18 months to agree a deal and draw down the funding. Fifteen finalists – five per region – will be given free independent legal advice up to the value of £10,000, provided by Dundas & Wilson. Nick Robinson, managing director, real estate, at Bank of Scotland Corporate, says:‘This is an ideal opportunity for us to leverage business with a number of new prospects.’ Peter Cummings, chief executive of Bank of Scotland Corporate, explains the bank’s approach to entrepreneurship in a more difficult market: ‘Some people look as though they are losing their nerve – beginning to panic, even – in today’s testing real estate environment. Not us. Our many partners in the property sector know that we are through the-cycle lenders and investors.‘Real estate has proved a successful sector because, over the years, we’ve taken care to align ourselves with entrepreneurs and developers who have exactly the right mix of robust ambition and careful temperament that’s really required in this arena.‘The current turbulent conditions offer a new range of opportunities. ‘These won’t be of much interest to short-term, speculative investors. But they will excite those entrepreneurs and investors with a long-term vision.’Edward Wojakovski, group chief executive of Tonstate and one of the judges for the south and Wales region, says he will be looking for an entrepreneur with ‘an intrinsically honest mind, focused astuteness in approach and the ability to calculate risk and evaluate reward’. ‘Knowing how to see the “wood from the trees”,’ is another attribute he expects in potential winners.Graham Stanley, executive director of Moorfield and another judge for the south and Wales region, says: ‘Any successful entrant would need a detailed understanding of the dynamics of the occupational property market –tenant demand, impact of the underlying economy, supply, product and rents.‘They would need a similar understanding of the investment market – the impact of the pricing of other investment assets and interest rates on property yields.‘This would involve understanding the benefits and disadvantages of using bank debt to fund transactions, awareness of the cyclical nature of both the occupational and investment markets, and the ability to build external working relationships to source product, equity and bank finance.’In the coming months, PropertyWeek will bring you monthly features giving you essential information and advice on entrepreneurial issues in our new ‘People’ section, from starting out in a tough market to how to make the perfect business pitch.The regional and national awards ceremonies, to be held in the autumn, will provide shortlisted entrants with excellent networking opportunities.The Bank of Scotland Corporate £30m Search for Property Entrepreneurs will be one of the biggest property talking points of 2008.last_img read more

Neymar suspended for clash with fan

first_imgPARIS (AP): Neymar will not play again at the Parc des Princes this season. The Paris Saint-Germain (PSG) striker was given a three-game ban yesterday for lashing out at a fan after a loss in the French Cup final last month, a punishment that capped another disappointing season for the Brazilian. The French football federation’s disciplinary commission added a suspended two-match ban to its punishment. PSG said in a statement that it finds the sanction “severe” and has decided with Neymar to appeal the decision. After Rennes beat PSG 6-5 on penalties after a 2-2 draw in the final at the Stade de France, Neymar reacted angrily to a fan who was filming and verbally goading players as they walked up the stairs to collect their runner-up medals. Neymar exchanged a few words with the supporter then raised his hand to him. It was unclear if Neymar made physical contact with him. Other PSG players, including Gianluigi Buffon and Marco Verratti, were verbally abused by the same person and ignored him. PSG coach Thomas Tuchel criticised Neymar for the spat and the Brazilian player later apologised. The ban starts Monday, ruling Neymar out of PSG’s last two league games. He can, however, play with the French champions at Angers today. The Brazil forward will also miss the Champions Trophy between the French champions and the French Cup winners on August 3. Neymar has also been suspended for three games by UEFA for insulting the video-review officials who awarded Manchester United’s stoppage-time penalty when PSG were eliminated from the UEFA Champions League in the last 16.last_img read more
