US women’s soccer player has wedding ring, key to city stolen from hotel room

first_img Beau Lund FacebookTwitterLinkedInEmailEric Verhoeven/Soccrates/Getty Images(LOS ANGELES) — U.S. women’s soccer player Allie Long’s time in France earned her some nice hardware: a World Cup trophy, first-place medal and a key to New York City, personally handed to her by Mayor Bill de Blasio.Now she’s searching for a copy to the latter. Long and her husband, Jose Batista, were staying at the Ritz-Carlton hotel in downtown Los Angeles as the team appeared at Wednesday night’s ESPY Awards when someone apparently entered her room and stole her wedding ring and her key to the city, according to a high-ranking Los Angeles Police Department source.The couple left their room and used the latch to prop the door open slightly while they visited someone else in the hotel, the source said.Long and her husband returned to the room, but didn’t realize until Thursday morning that her jewelry, cash and key were missing.An official told ABC News there is security video from the floor and it is currently being reviewed by LAPD detectives.She tweeted about the incident Thursday night, asking de Blasio if he made copies.After the @ESPYS show someone stole my wedding ring, cash and the key to my favorite city after just receiving it from my hotel room. Do you make copies @NYCMayor ? I would love a new one.— Allie Long (@ALLIE_LONG) July 12, 2019The ring is reportedly worth $15,000 — but the key is priceless.Long is actually from just outside New York City, being raised in Northport on Long Island.The U.S. women’s national soccer team defeated the Netherlands, 2-0, on Sunday to claim its second consecutive World Cup. The team returned to New York late Monday, spent much of Tuesday doing media appearances and then were feted with a ticker-tape parade Wednesday morning followed by a quick flight across country for the ESPYS at night.They were awarded an ESPY for best team at the show.Long, 31, is a reserve midfielder for the U.S. women’s team.

Kim Ng shares how she reacted to being named Marlins’ first female GM in MLB history

first_imgNovember 16, 2020 /Sports News – National Kim Ng shares how she reacted to being named Marlins’ first female GM in MLB history Beau Lund FacebookTwitterLinkedInEmailABC NewsBy KELLY MCCARTHY, ABC News(NEW YORK) — The Miami Marlins made a historic change to the lineup in their front office. Kim Ng joined ABC News’ Good Morning America Monday after being named general manager of the Marlins on Friday, becoming the first female and first Asian American general manager in the sport’s history.“It really was just so unbelievable. It actually took a couple seconds for it to soak in,” Ng recalled of the moment she got the job. “Generally, I play things fairly close to the vest and Derek Jeter, who told me, basically said, ‘You’re not even going to smile?’ So it was quite a moment. And — honestly it was a relief and it felt like a 10,000[-pound] weight had been lifted off my shoulder.” Ng said she had a socially distanced gathering with her mom and four sisters the day after she got the exciting news. “I said to them, ‘Well, I’m moving to Miami.’ And they looked at me just completely befuddled and said, ‘Why? What’s going on?’ And I said, ‘Well, there’s a former shortstop I used to know who’s hired me to be the next general manager.’ And they started screaming, of course,” Ng said of the big moment. “It was hard because my mom, I couldn’t hug her at this time but she, of course, got very emotional and all of us did. It was great,” she added. Ng has a winning record with the Marlins CEO and former Yankees great who played for the team when she was with the New York organization. “On behalf of principal owner Bruce Sherman and our entire ownership group, we look forward to Kim bringing a wealth of knowledge and championship-level experience to the Miami Marlins,” Jeter said in a statement. “Her leadership of our baseball operations team will play a major role on our path toward sustained success. Additionally, her extensive work in expanding youth baseball and softball initiatives will enhance our efforts to grow the game among our local youth as we continue to make a positive impact on the South Florida community.” In their time together with the New York Yankees, Ng and Jeter notched three World Series wins, in 1998, 1999 and 2000.With more than 30 years of experience in the sport, Ng has previously been with the Chicago White Sox, Yankees, Los Angeles Dodgers, and most recently spent the last nine years in the MLB commissioner’s office. Ng was long rumored to be a prime candidate to become the first female GM in the sport. “I’ve interviewed numerous times for this position. I think after, you know, maybe a handful, you start thinking, well, maybe this isn’t going to happen,” she said. “That belief persisted for quite some time until, you know, obviously a week ago or several days ago when this happened.” “It was a difficult time. You know, you question your ability. You question everything you’ve worked hard for. But in the end, you know, you got a great ending,” Ng said. “It’s about hard work and perseverance and still remaining confident in yourself.” She continued, “one of the biggest things [is] that you can’t just quit on yourself.” Ng also said that it’s up to leaders of organizations to promote these big changes, offering Jeter as an example “in terms of what he did and his groundbreaking move and they should try to be fearless.”When the news was first announced Friday, the longtime baseball executive said in a statement, “I entered Major League Baseball as an intern and, after decades of determination, it is the honor of my career to lead the Miami Marlins as their next General Manager.” “We are building for the long term in South Florida, developing a forward-thinking, collaborative, creative baseball operation made up of incredibly talented and dedicated staff who have, over the last few years, laid a great foundation for success,” she continued. “This challenge is one I don’t take lightly. When I got into this business, it seemed unlikely a woman would lead a Major League team, but I am dogged in the pursuit of my goals.” She is also believed to be the first woman hired to the general manager position by any of the professional men’s sports teams in the North American Major Leagues, the organization said in a press release. “My goal is now to bring championship baseball to Miami. I am both humbled and eager to continue building the winning culture our fans respect and deserve,” Ng said.Copyright © 2020, ABC Audio. All rights reserved.center_img Written bylast_img read more

The separation is likely to be concluded in the first half of next year, subject to customary conditions, consultations and regulatory approvals.According to TechnipFMC, the merger of Technip and FMC Technologies in 2017, which resulted in its creation as a new subsea player has established it as the only fully-integrated subsea provider. The company’ said that its performance since the merger has made the proposed spin-off possible which when completed will help the two firms to unlock additional value.The two new companies RemainCo and SpinCo will have distinct and expanding market opportunities and also specific customer bases, said the oil services provider.SpinCo is expected to become one of the largest E&C pure-play companies in the world, and will be able to capture LNG opportunities owing to its strong project delivery model, proven track record, and demonstrated capabilities, said TechnipFMC.The new company will be made up of TechnipFMC’s onshore/offshore segment, which includes Genesis, a provider of front end engineering and design services. SpinCo would also include Loading Systems and Cybernetix.RemainCo, on the other hand, will be made up of the technology and services business of the company. It will continue to support TechnipFMC’s clients in the delivery of integrated production solutions with a workforce of around 22,000 employees.TechnipFMC chairman and CEO Doug Pferdehirt said: “To further enhance value creation, our Board of Directors and management team have continuously evaluated strategic options and, after a comprehensive review, determined that it is in the best interest of TechnipFMC and all of our stakeholders to create two diversified pure-play leaders.“We are confident that the separation would allow both businesses to thrive independently within their sectors, enabling each to unlock significant additional value.”last_img read more

Right to Rent policy to be rolled-out

first_imgThe Home Office has announced plans to roll-out the Government’s Right to Rent policy across England, following a successful pilot in the West Midlands.From the start of February next year all private landlords letting property in England will be required to check the immigration status – or right-to-rent – of prospective tenants before agreeing to establish a new tenancy.Announcements concerning the implementation in Scotland, Wales and Northern Ireland are expected at a later date.Richard Lambert (left), Chief Executive Officer at the NLA, said, “This policy is causing great concern among landlords so we’re pleased that those with properties in England finally have clarity over when the scheme will be rolled out.“With just over three months to go it’s vital landlords familiarise themselves with what they will need to do to properly check their tenants in order to steer clear of breaking the law come February, especially because those who fail to do so could wind up in jail.”The Home Office’s evaluation of the scheme so far seems to show that landlords’ experience of carrying out right to rent checks is not as bad as the perception of the problems they will cause, but Daniel Watney LLP, a full-service property consultancy, warns that compulsory checks by landlord and agents on the immigration status of new tenants could cost tenants an extra £70 million.Data from Home Office trials found lettings fees could go up by as much as £120. Research by the Joint Council for the Welfare for Immigrants found similar increases.Stephen Birtwistle, Associate Partner at Daniel Watney LLP, said, “Even the Home Office recognises forcing landlords and agents to check the immigration status of prospective tenants will lead to higher fees, at a time when many renters are already struggling financially.“The fact is landlords and agents do not have the necessary knowledge or resources to act as effective border guards. If the government is serious about tackling illegal immigration, it needs to take an integrated approach, encouraging the different departments and agencies to communicate better and share information more efficiently.”The Association of Independent Inventory Clerks (AIIC) has described the results of the Right to Rent pilot scheme as disappointing and largely unhelpful, after only a small sample of results from the West Midlands pilot project were published.Patricia Barber (right), Chair of the AIIC, commented, “The government has acted extremely quickly after last week’s second reading of the Immigration Bill and while it is pleasing that the results have finally been publicised, it is disappointing to see the input and experiences from so few landlords and letting agents.”immigration status of tenants new policy Right to Rent Right to Rent policy 2015-11-02The Negotiator Related articles Letting agent fined £11,500 over unlicenced rent-to-rent HMO3rd May 2021 BREAKING: Evictions paperwork must now include ‘breathing space’ scheme details30th April 2021 Lawyer leading RICS governance probe asks members to help with evidence30th April 2021What’s your opinion?

SDL Group welcomes 10,00th B2R tenant

Several years ago we predicted that B2R would provide a major shake up in the Private Rental Sector. We’re now seeing this come to fruition.“Last summer there was a slight slowdown in the approval of funding for B2R schemes immediately after the Brexit referendum but thankfully this was short lived. After the initial shock, the big institutional lenders now appear to have an even greater appetite for the sector.“I’m anticipating an increased interest in B2R due to the recent decline of the Bond markets as it offers institutions a relatively safe and secure home for their capital, whilst providing a regular and constant return, which is ideal for pension funds looking for annuity income.”SDL Group plans to secure 20 per cent of the UK’s new B2R specific stock by 2020, growing its B2R portfolio to over 10,000 properties.SDL Group build to rent SDL Group B2R SDL Group January 23, 2017The NegotiatorWhat’s your opinion?

‘There will not be a segment of short-term rentals that Airbnb does not wish to dominate’

first_imgHome » News » Housing Market » ‘There will not be a segment of short-term rentals that Airbnb does not wish to dominate’ previous nextHousing Market‘There will not be a segment of short-term rentals that Airbnb does not wish to dominate’Airbnb’s ambition within the property market is clear, says research companyNigel Lewis28th February 201701,783 Views The threat that Airbnb presents to agents is laid bare by recently comments by a senior figure within the company, as well as research carried out exclusively for The Negotiator within the London market.This shows that the dot com is not only beginning to eat up the general short lets market in London and remove many properties from the traditional private rented sector, but that many high-end property owners are also utilising it to increase their returns too.The research by Airdna reveals that there is a significant number of central London properties that are generating huge incomes for their owners, properties that can hardly be described as bedroom rents or sofa surfing.This includes a six-bedroom property in Mayfair that over the past 12 months has earned £97,600 for its host, a Swiss Cottage garden flat that has earned £69,800 and a Westminster duplex that has generated £67,100.Some property owners are also renting out entire apartment blocks. One property in Shoreditch, a nine-apartment block, has generated £212,670 for its owner via Airbnb over the past year, according to Airdna.“Entering the high end of the market lays out the statement that Airbnb has gone far beyond its air mattress roots,” says Airdna chief revenue officer Tom Caton (pictured, left).“The high end requires a different approach from the user generated content that powers [our] listings.“And our Luxury Rentals team of experts will help to scale Airbnb at the top end, right into the territory of other high-end traditional vacation rentals.“It is a clear statement of intent that there will not be a segment of short-term rentals that Airbnb does not wish to dominate.”Airdna says Airbnb lists 56,237 properties in the capital 24% of which were rented out for more than 90 days between February 2016 and January this year.But in a few months’ time Airbnb will begin stopping hosts from renting out their properties for more than three months, following protests from several London councils that such lets were unregulated.“The problem was that a website that was about people making a little money letting out rooms was being abused by professional landlords turning their properties into hotels by the back door,” said Tom Copley, Labour’s housing spokesman on the London assembly, recently told The Guardian.But some agents see Airbnb as an opportunity. As we reported recently, 18-branch agent Portico has set up a property management arm exclusively for Airbnb hosts. “It really does pay to get on board with Airbnb in the short-term,” said Portico MD Robert Nichols (pictured, left).London short lets airbnb February 28, 2017Nigel LewisWhat’s your opinion?

OnTheMarket shares begin trading at £1.63p, plummets to £1.48p

first_imgShares in OnTheMarket began trading on London’s AIM stock market today kicking off at £1.63p, valuing the company at £100 million, and quickly rising by 2p to £1.65 before dropping to £1.48p by end of trading on Friday.The OnThemarket shares issue, which it says has raised £30m out of a hoped-for £50m to finance its battle for market share with Rightmove and ZPG, is the conclusion of a long and tortuous road for CEO Ian Springett’s ambitious portal project.It launched in January 2015 two years after founding members Knight Frank, Savills, Strutt & Parker and Chestertons first convened to form parent company Agents’ Mutual Ltd.OnTheMarket.com positioned itself as a mutual organisation of agent members, but introduced a controversial ‘one other portal’ rules that made agents choose between either Rightmove or Zoopla as their ‘other portal’.Last year agent Gascoigne Halman took OnTheMarket to court, claiming the ‘one other portal’ rule was anti-competitive, but lost the case.This cleared the way for OnTheMarket to demutualise, which took place following a vote of its 2,700 agent members late last year.Former members of the mutual organisation were allocated share options based on their size of listing and length of membership. This lead to several agents signing up to long-term deals with OnTheMarket, in return for share options, including Hunters and Arun Estates.But the portal has often been riled by ZPG’s ability to poach agents off OnTheMarket, which ZPG claims has totalled over 800 agents since OnTheMarket launched.“The key proposition of the business remains the creation of an agent-backed, full-scale property portal to disrupt what is otherwise a duopoly of Rightmove and Zoopla by offering a premier search experience to consumers whilst charging sustainably fair prices to agents,” says OnTheMarket’s initial public offering (IPO) material.OnTheMarket says that as of today it has 5,500 branches signed up to its platform, approximately a third of the market.knight frank Ian Springett OnTheMarket OTM Strutt & Parker and Chestertons Savills February 9, 2018Nigel LewisWhat’s your opinion?
