Liverpool estate agency re-launches lettings after £3.5m Purplebricks dealAfter selling its lettings operation to the hybrid agency in 2017, The Venmore Group is now free to re-establish its property management division.Nigel Lewis12th August 20200938 Views The Venmore Group, the Merseyside estate agency that sold its lettings division to Purplebricks in April 2017 for £3.5 million, has relaunched its property management business after being released from the deal’s two-year ‘no compete’ clause.Purplebricks has always been shy about why it bought the business, which it acquired at the height of the Bruce brothers’ years at the company when it still had operations in the US and Australia and was making punchy claims for its growth.Freed from the restrictions of the deal, The Venmore Group has now re-launched its lettings division as TVG Lettings headed up by Darren Kay, one of the company’s experienced lettings bosses.Venmores has also re-employed many of its former staff who moved over to Purplebricks following the deal in 2017.The Venmore Group operates two other estate agency brands in the Liverpool area including Bradshaw Farnham & Lea both on the Wirral and in Chester, and two-branch Ball & Percival in Southport.Under its own brand it has both residential sales, commercial and auction divisions as well as, prior to the Purplebricks deal, two lettings branches in Liverpool.“It’s great to be back! Relaunching the Lettings business is an absolute pleasure and to be working again with some fantastic former colleagues is the icing on the cake,” says Kay (left).“It has been a brilliant start and we have combined our experience with utilising the latest technology to ensure a fantastic service to our clients, new and old.”Venmore Bradshaw Farnham & Lea Ball & Percival Purplebricks August 12, 2020Nigel LewisWhat’s your opinion?

Head of U.S. Southern Command Visits Uruguay

first_imgBy Dialogo May 10, 2010 The head of the U.S. Southern Command, Gen. Douglas Fraser, completed a visit to Montevideo Thursday in which he met with the Uruguayan defense minister, Luis Rosadilla, the high command of the armed forces, and the Parliament’s Defense Commission. The objective of the visit was “to engage in dialogue about bilateral cooperation between the two countries and issues of mutual interest, as well as also to analyze support for peacekeeping operations and humanitarian aid,” according to a statement by Washington’s embassy in Montevideo. Parliamentary deputy Javier García, a member of the lower house’s Defense Commission, told AFP that discussions touched on “a variety of issues: cooperation between the two countries, the Antarctic (security) issue, and the issue of the arms race in Latin America was raised.” With regard to this last point, García said that Fraser “played down the matter, and characterized it as more in the realm of investment.” At the same time, “he highlighted Uruguay’s participation in UN peacekeeping missions.” Uruguay has deployed a contingent of 1,162 blue helmets as part of the United Nations Stabilization Mission in Haiti (MINUSTAH), while also providing 1,300 personnel to the UN Mission in the Democratic Republic of Congo (MONUC). Fraser visited the Uruguayan National Peace Operations School (ENOPU), where military personnel are trained for UN peacekeeping missions. Likewise, he visited a community center for young people in Santa Catalina, on the western fringe of Montevideo, a humanitarian project under construction with donations from the Southern Command, coordinated with the Defense Ministry and local authorities, where a clinic is also operating.last_img read more

TREÑAS REPEATS CALL FOR DUQUE’S FIRING; DOH hit over ‘mass recovery’ tally for COVID-19

first_imgARNOLD ALMACEN/CMO“I think it is about time that he gives up his position,” says Mayor Jerry Treñas of Iloilo City. As of July 31, Iloilo City has 91 local cases, 47 of which are active and 40 already recovered. The city has also 64 infected locally stranded individuals and overseas Filipino workers. This tally surpassed the number of COVID-19 cases in China, the original epicenter of the pandemic. As of Thursday, China has 87,680 cases. But the new record on the number of new cases was not the only thing that worries Treñas. According to the mayor, the “miraculous” DOH’s adjustment – now identifying mild and asymptomatic cases who stayed healthy for 14 days as recovered patients – is enough for President Rodrigo Duterte to fire Duque. Duterte defended Duque numerous times amid criticisms on how his agency is handling the COVID-19 pandemic. The agency said reconciliation activity resulted in over 3,000 identified recoveries from July 12 to 14./PN The keywords “mass recovery” is now a trending topic on Twitter, with over 7,400 tweets as of posting time – with majority of the posts denouncing the government for allegedly trying to deceive the public. ILOILO City – Mayor Jerry Treñas once more urged Health secretary Franciso Duque III to step down.   Duterte said he has known Duque since the time of former President Gloria Macapagal Arroyo. “Libagon gid ang tanan nga gina-obra nila,” Treñas said.  “The massive data reconciliation efforts have resulted in faster and more accurate tagging of health statuses, particularly on death and recoveries. Data on recovery reconciliations will be reported every 15 days,” the DOH said. “Mabudlay para saton gobyerno nga maka-move forward if we have a leader like this,” Treñas pointed out. “We have already overtaken China [for COVID-19 cases] and all of sudden DOH comes up with this idea,” Treñas said. But according to Treñas, if the President finds it difficult to fire Duque, it’s about time for the latter to voluntarily resign. Back in June, the mayor questioned the department’s move to pull out rural doctors from Western Visayas to Cebu City. On Thursday, DOH also recorded the highest single increase in confirmed cases at 3,954, bringing the total number to 89,374 – of which, 1,983 patients died while 65,064 recovered. According to the DOH, the surge in the number of recoveries was attributed to enhanced data reconciliation efforts with local government units through “Oplan Recovery.” These thousands of new recoveries shocked Treñas. “Medyo nakibot ako,” he said. “If Secretary Duque cannot really perform as Health chief, I think it is about time he gives up his position,” Treñas stressed.   The President, according to Treñas, should hire more qualified and competent doctors who can “deliver the goods better” in addressing the health concerns of the country. The mayor was also anxious about the surge in new recoveries, saying DOH might also identify the city’s  COVID-19 asymptomatic cases as recoveries.     This was the second time Treñas demanded for the DOH chief’s resignation. The DOH has been the target of ridicule in social media, after netizens noted that the government supposedly changed the way it tallies recoveries just to make it appear that more people are fighting off the disease. His fresh call came after the Department of Health (DOH) tallied a “dubious” record of 38,075 coronavirus disease 2019 (COVID-19) recoveries nationwide in a single day.last_img read more

Saint Leo Attack Too Much for West Florida

first_img Sept. 2, 2007 Box Score  SAINT LEO, Fla. – In a rematch of last season’s NCAA Division II Regional Semifinal match that ended with the Argonauts winning in a shootout, West Florida (1-2-0) was unable to overcome a late second half goal and fell to Saint Leo (2-1-0) 2-1 Sunday afternoon at University Field on the Saint Leo campus.Following a two hour delay due to lightning in the area, the teams battled in the midfield for the first fifteen before the Lions were able to crack the score board at the 28th minute of the first half. A pair of thru balls opened a lane for Chrissy Darwell, leaving her with a one-on-one opportunity, against the Argonauts goal keeper Courtney Jones (So. / Panama City, Fla.).West Florida tied the match 12 minutes into the second half, when Lura Carter (Jr. / Tallahassee, Fla.) sent the ball into the box on a set play and Jodi Galucci (So. / Stuart, Fla.) finished the opportunity netting her first goal of the season.The Lions answered back at the 72:10 mark of the match. Bridgett Godwin ran the ball down in the corner and sent a cross to Sara Macko who settled it and put away the eventual game winner.”They got an early goal and had a lot of momentum with their fans there,” said head coach Joe Bartlinski. “We battled back and were able to equalize but made some mistakes due to our youth.”It was good to see us battled back the way we did, but we need just a bit more soccer maturity to break though for better results. They are going to have to learn and on a faster curve then most young player get.”It was Saint Leo’s first victory over West Florida in eight all-time meetings. Up next for the Argonauts is a weekend road trip to Rollins and Florida Southern. On Friday they take on the Tars at 5 p.m. CT and the Moccasin at 1 p.m. CT. Fans can follow the action with “Live Stats” at goargos.com on the Women’s Soccer home page. Print Friendly Version Share Saint Leo Attack Too Much for West Floridalast_img read more

Villas-Boas confident over Townsend

first_img And the main reason the 22-year-old has had an extended run in the first team is because of an injury to Aaron Lennon, who is now fit and in contention for Sunday’s game at Aston Villa. Villas-Boas was concerned that Townsend’s experience with the international team would be counter-productive. The Portuguese feared the winger would go down the same route as Jake Livermore and Tom Huddlestone, who received call-ups and were then quickly discarded. Theo Walcott and Alex Oxlade-Chamberlain will come back in to the reckoning by the time the World Cup comes around, but Villas-Boas is sure Townsend will feature for England for a long time to come so long as he keeps impressing for his club. The Portuguese added: “We’re very proud of what he has done, (we have) seen him play with so much confidence and determination he’s really set his place in the team, for Tottenham and for his country. “It’s performances like this that keep your place in the team. “Whenever he’s been called up by myself or Roy he’s given great performances. At the moment we’re very happy with what he’s been doing and I think Roy thinks the same. “It’s wonderful for him. He’s come along with the explosion he had in the Premier League, not just with Tottenham but with his country. “He is doing extremely well for club and country and deserves credit.” Townsend may find it easier to get into the England team than the Spurs XI. Lennon is available for the trip to Villa Park this weekend while £30million signing Erik Lamela is itching for a league start. Villas-Boas is looking for his team to bounce back in the Midlands following their shock 3-0 defeat to West Ham before the international break. “That definitely was a call to attention for us,” Villas-Boas said. “Everything is open this season, it showed us that surprise results can happen. “We analysed that game with the squad when everyone got back and made sure we’re able to give a response against Villa and going forward.” Andre Villas-Boas has no doubt Andros Townsend will be able to shoulder the pressure of being England’s next big thing. Jack Wilshere was afforded that tag after he burst onto the scene with Arsenal a couple of years ago while players like David Bentley have crashed and burned under the weight of expectation. Townsend got a taste of how fierce the spotlight on England can be this week when he found himself – through no fault of his own – in the middle of a race row. Villas-Boas knows Townsend’s every move will be scrutinised over the next seven months in the build-up to the World Cup, but he is sure the player will be able to cope. “That is part of growing up as a player,” the Tottenham manager said. “I would suppose that wouldn’t divert his attention too much. “I expect him to be the same player. There are going to be more people worried about him, he will be more in the public eye and they will demand performances from him and I expect him to respond. “Most of his colleagues are down to earth, he is in the right environment for his development and I think we have to help him in that sense.” Townsend had to go through nine loan spells before he got his first crack at regular first-team football with Spurs this season. Townsend’s stock has risen sharply over the last fortnight thanks to his explosive international debut against Montenegro and an impressive showing against Poland four days later. The 22-year-old’s place in the Tottenham squad was in doubt at the start of the season but now he is seen as England’s brightest emerging star. Press Associationlast_img read more

Mohammed says Windies still threats despite loss in first ODI

first_imgST JOHN’S, Antigua, (CMC) – Jason Mohammed believes West Indies have sent a strong signal to their detractors they can compete against world class sides like England, despite their defeat in the opening One-Day International of the three-match series.The 30-year-old right-hander was the stand-out performer at the Vivian Richards Cricket Stadium here with a maiden ODI half-century as West Indies went down by 45 runs in the encounter on Friday after being asked to chase 297 for victory.“I thought we played a very good game of cricket,” the Trinidadian told reporters.“I know probably not much people gave us a chance before this game but I think we played really well and showed that as a young team coming in, that we can compete with England and most importantly, we can win games.”England captain Eoin Morgan stroked an excellent 107 to rally his side, after fast bowler Shannon Gabriel had stunned the visitors with two early strikes to leave them on 29 for two in the eighth over.In reply, West Indies fought back from 39 for three in the 12th over courtesy of Mohammed’s top score of 72 off 91 balls.He put on 69 for the fourth wicket with Shai Hope (31) and a further 82 for the fifth wicket with Carter, to steer West Indies to 190 for four in the 39th over.But once Carter perished in the deep, the innings lost energy, and the Windies were all out for 251 in the 48th over.Mohammed, who was seventh out in the 42nd over, said losing Hope and Carter had been the turning point in the run chase especially since the lower order failed to fire.“We were in the game right through. I think with myself and Shai and then Carter, we had a really good partnership and then losing the both of them kind of pulled back the momentum … so that was the changing point in our chase,” Mohammed explained.“I think we had a good chance at chasing but the two guys (Hope and Carter) coming and getting out and then our power-hitters – the captain (Jason Holder) and Carlos (Brathwaite) – didn’t get off so I think that was a crucial part in the game.”The personal achievement for Mohammed came in only his third ODI and his first international appearance in two years, and he said he was still feeling in good nick from last month’s Regional Super50.“We just came off our regional tournament and I had a very good one. [I was] coming in here with a lot of confidence knowing I had some good form and some good innings behind me,” the Trinidadian said.“But they are world class bowlers and it was always going to be a tough job but I think I played pretty well in the end and that’s the reason I got 50-odd.”last_img read more

Regular Season Title Within Reach for Selkirk College Saints Hockey Team

first_imgWith three games remaining in the British Columbia Intercollegiate Hockey League (BCIHL) regular season, the Selkirk College Saints hold the fate of home ice advantage for the post season in their own hands.Coming off a pair of playoff-like contests against rival Simon Fraser University this past weekend at the Castlegar & District Recreation Centre, each team captured a victory which means the Saints can finish first overall in the league by closing out the season on a winning streak.“It’s now up to us,” says Saints head coach Brent Heaven. “We have the opportunity to clinch home ice throughout the playoffs and give ourselves the best opportunity to succeed.”Simon Fraser came into the weekend as the BCIHL’s top team and after a back-and-forth opening period on Friday night, the game stayed level at zeroes. Early in the second period, Saints’ forward Alex Milligan scored on the powerplay to give the home side the lead, but four minutes later Simon Fraser’s Michael Sandor tied the game.A mere 11 seconds after that, rookie Marcel Fuchs restored the Selkirk College lead and by the midway point of the middle period, Tylor Branzen and Ryon Sookro would make the advantage 4-1.Simon Fraser added to a wild second period with a goal by Mathew Berry-Lamontagna to close the gap and Jono Ceci made it close midway through the third period, but Selkirk College held on for the 4-3 victory.“It was an extremely exciting game and it was good to see some guys get rewarded for hard work,” says Heaven.“Overall it was a good, solid playoff atmosphere. Those are the games you are going to expect to have to play and it’s a battle.” On Saturday night, it was the Saints who came out strong in the first period with defenceman Arie Postmus scoring his first goal of the season and Branzen adding a powerplay marker for a 2-0 first period lead.The Clan scored with two minutes left in the second period to narrow the gap and with 37 second remaining on the clock in third, Berry-Lamontagna scored to send the game into overtime.Though the Saints dominated the overtime period, Simon Fraser goaltender Jordan Liem kept the puck out of the net. The game went to shootout where the visitors came out on top to steal the victory.Despite the loss, Heaven says the outstanding play of veteran goaltender James Prigione over the entire weekend came at the perfect time.“James was fantastic for us last year in playoffs, he was one of the big reasons why we were able to succeed,” Heaven says of the team’s third straight league title last March.“He has had the opportunity to carry most of the weight this season and we’re extremely happy with what he has been able to do. Hopefully he can sustain that because goaltending will be important when the playoffs begin.”After the dust settled on weekend action, Simon Fraser continues to hold a one-point advantage in the standings but the Saints have a game-in-hand.The Saints and SFU will complete their third game in a row on Friday night in Burnaby where the stakes will be even higher. They then travel to Trinity Western University on Saturday night to take on the formidable Spartans.The regular season wraps up at home on Saturday, March 5 when the Eastern Washington University Eagles visit Castlegar.“Compared to other buildings in our league, the atmosphere we have in our own rink is huge,” Heaven says of the desire to clinch top spot.“We get 1,000 people to the games for playoffs and it’s huge to play in a loud building where there is support from fellow students and the great hockey fans in our communities. When we are in a situation to succeed, the fans really get behind us and give us that extra spark we need.”The Saints have clinched a playoff spot. The first best-of-three round will take place on the March 11-13 weekend and the league championship series is set for March 18-20.last_img read more

CALIFORNIA-BRED WARREN’S VENEDA IS SMASHING 7 ¼ LENGTH WINNER OF GRADE I, $400,000 SANTA MARGARITA STAKES; WARREN HOMEBRED MARE RIDDEN BY BAZE AND TRAINED BY LEWIS

first_imgARCADIA, Calif. (March 14, 2015)–California-bred Warren’s Veneda firmly established herself as the West Coast’s top older filly or mare with a sensational 7 ¼ length win in Saturday’s Grade I, $400,000 Santa Margarita Stakes, as she negotiated 1 1/8 miles under Tyler Baze in 1:48.73.Conditioned by Craig Lewis, the 5-year-old chestnut mare by Affirmative registered her third win in-a-row and followed up on a career-best 2 ¾ length win in the Grade II Santa Maria Stakes on Feb. 14. Drawn outside in a field of six older fillies and mares, Warren’s Veneda was hung three-wide while last into the Club House turn and cruised to the leaders while in-hand under Baze going to the far turn. Three-wide turning for home she lengthened her considerable stride and put her competition away with a furlong to run.“The last three times I’ve ridden her, she just does things so easy,” said Baze. “I haven’t gotten to the bottom of her yet. There’s so much horse under me and she just does what she needs to do to win…Usually, if you’re sitting mid-pack, horses won’t flick their ears back and forth and just relax, but she was…and was totally relaxed.“Craig tells me she’s only getting better and she proved it today. She’s special. She’s named after Mr. Warren’s late wife, so I know how special this is for him.”Owned by her breeder, Benjamin, C. Warren, Warren’s Veneda provided Warren, who has owned and bred horses in California for 35 years, with his first-ever Grade I win.“Out of our 800 horses, that’s the best win, the biggest,” said Warren, who currently resides in Las Vegas.The 3-2 favorite, Warren’s Veneda paid $5.00, $2.60 and $2.20. The Santa Margarita was her eighth win from 22 career starts, and with the winner’s share of $240,000, she increased her earnings to $827,612.“I was pretty confident that she was going to win, but I didn’t think that she would be that dominating, because I thought the two Eastern fillies (runner-up Dame Dorothy and early pace setter Cassatt) looked awful good on paper,” said Lewis. “We’re thinking about the Charles Town Classic (versus males on April 18). We’re going to have to take on some pretty tough boys, but she could be up to the task.”Dame Dorothy, who shipped in from South Florida for trainer Todd Pletcher, stalked the early pace and overhauled Thegirlinthatsong and Uzziel late to run second by a half length. Ridden by Rafael Bejarano, Dame Dorothy was the second choice at 2-1 and paid $3.20 and $2.60.Ridden by Mike Smith, Thegirlinthatsong was off at 8-1 and finished third, a half length in front of Uzziel and paid $2.80 to show.Fractions on the race were 23.15, 46.64, 1:10.68 and 1:35.79.First post time for a nine-race card on Sunday is at 12:30 p.m. Admission gates open at 10:30 a.m. –30–last_img read more
