Vermont Business Magazine Senator Bernie Sanders (I-Vermont) issued the following statement Monday evening after Sens. Mike Lee (R-Utah) and Jerry Moran (R-Kan.) announced they would oppose the Senate Republican bill to repeal the Affordable Care Act, leaving Republicans short of enough votes to pass the legislation:”I am delighted to see that the disastrous Republican health care plan will not succeed. The American people want to proceed to health care for all, not see 22 million Americans thrown off of the health care they currently have. This is a great victory for the millions of Americans who stood up and fought back against this dangerous legislation.”Source: WASHINGTON, July 17, 2017 – Senator Bernie Sanders
Tri Expo, which runs alongside Swim Expo, Bike Expo and Run Expo, on 18-20 March 2016 at EventCity in Manchester, is being positioned as a festival of triathlon. The consumer expo features… ‘the latest gear and equipment on the market, live coaching demos and seminars, indoor racing, celebrity guest appearances, exclusive show offers and giveaways, and much more.’The show organiser, Hamerville Media Group, hopes to deliver a show to cater for all abilities. In 2016, the expo will once again feature a busy schedule of interactive coaching seminars, enabling visitors to learn from some of the best coaches in the business. At the 2016 event, Clif Bar will be presenting a seminar on sports nutrition, which ‘promises to be a great source of information for triathletes of all abilities.’The main stage at 2016’s event will again be hosted by Mark Foster, former World Champion swimmer turned TV commentator. Mark will be sharing his wealth of knowledge and introducing special guests, including IRONMAN athlete Joe Skipper, World Duathlon Bronze Medallist Mark Buckingham and 2012 Olympian, Lucy Hall.The organizers add that, ‘Perhaps the most exciting addition to the 2016 expo is an indoor 800m racing track, which will play host to a series of cycling and running races throughout the three-day event.’The programme of bike racing includes an elite race, men’s cat 1-3, corporate challenges, and a junior race; while the running event, in association with Events of the North (a company run by Steve Cram), will see ‘thousands of runners take on the iconic one mile distance on the track which snakes around the Expo halls.’A release from Hamerville notes that the 2016 show looks set to be ‘bigger and better than ever before, with a larger audience than last year expected, as well as an increase in the number of local club athletes.’ Hamerville adds that the addition of the indoor track and racing events will ‘ensure an even larger captive audience of discerning triathletes, cyclists and runners.’www.triexpo.co.uk Related
RIESTER moved its offices to a more spacious and centrally situated building in the Phoenix-metro area. ‘RIESTER on Camelback’ is located at 3344 E. Camelback Road and marks a new era for the Firm that formerly operated for more than 18 years from two adjacent buildings in the Roosevelt Historic District.RIESTER’s move was made possible by the commercial real estate work of Michael R. McQuaid of Newmark Grubb Knight Frank who found a roomier and more modern workspace for RIESTER to acquire.RIESTER is fast approaching the beginning of its third decade in business, founded by President and CEO, Tim Riester.“Entrepreneurship provides many memorable moments, but this has to be among our finest. We are incredibly excited to provide our clients and staff with this new, thought-provoking environment to create extremely effective advertising campaigns. We are ready for a productive inaugural week with an already booked calendar of meetings in our new ‘digs’ and we look forward to welcoming our clients and marketing industry partners,” Riester said.RIESTER’s two-story building has prominent views of Piestewa Peak to the north and Camelback Mountain to the east. It showcases original artwork from RIESTER co-owner, Chief Creative Officer and artist Tom Ortega.The interior, designed by RIESTER co-owner and Chief Strategic Officer Mirja Riester with assistance from the architectural firm Krause Interiors, was constructed by Reliance Build, Inc. and features an area called Campaign Corner with walls and floors made of dry erase board material.There is a ThinkSpace furnished with a modern interpretation of a classroom size chalkboard. RIESTERcafe was fashioned as a social media real-time monitoring and rapid response environment. Research and development will continue to flow in RIESTER’s new Test Kitchen that was created for the Firm’s grocery products clients, as well as the reinvented Focus Group and Observation Rooms. There is a mini dog park for the Firm’s iconic visitors, a place for checking out RIESTER community bicycles and even a private exercise recovery room equipped with a spa-like shower.

Solar is intermittent so therefore, you may be having a 100 percent solar, then a cloud passes over and you drop from 100 to 80 percent. On a cloudy or overcast day, the difference between what the solar power is producing and what the town needs will have to be augmented by the generator,” Minister Patterson related.

Southampton Town leaders have been talking about the need to provide more affordable housing for years. On Thursday, June 7, as the town board took its first look at legislation that would ease restrictions on affordable accessory apartments, especially in areas with higher real estate values, board members learned it could be a little more difficult than they at first thought.“The thing we all agree on is we have a crisis,” said Supervisor Jay Schneiderman, who made increasing the number of affordable accessory apartments a priority shortly after taking office in 2016. “There is this clock ticking, and as that clock ticks, more people are leaving our community.”A law currently on the books allows property owners who have at least three-quarters of an acre to apply for an accessory apartment through a permitting process. In the 18 years that law has been in effect, only 352 accessory apartments have been created — and those apartments are not subject to any price controls, town Planning and Land Use Administrator Kyle Collins told the board.Under a new proposal that was presented by Assistant Town Attorney Kara Bak and Housing and Community Development Director Diana Weir, the town would allow properties as small as 15,000 square feet to be eligible for an accessory apartment with the caveat that landlords would have to enroll them in the town’s affordable housing program and cap rents based on federal guidelines.The restrictions would only be eased in hamlets where the median home price was higher than the townwide median price.That element of the law immediately drew the objection of Councilwoman Christine Scalera, the sole Republican on the board, who questioned whether limiting affordable rentals to only those areas with higher property values would violate federal fair housing standards.Although Bak said the legislation was aiming to promote affordable housing in the eastern half of town, where it is needed the most, Scalera asked, “Can you do that in a constitutional way?”Scalera said she was also concerned that easing the lot-size restriction for accessory apartments could open the door to a flood of applications because, she said, it could make up to 9000 lots in town eligible. “It’s a truly significant increase in density, a downzoning,” she said.She also questioned how the town, which she said already has problems enforcing the code, would be able to keep up with the new demand on its resources.When Scalera suggested that Hampton Bays is “already overrun” by illegal apartments, Councilman Tommy John Schiavoni accused her of exaggerating. “Watch your rhetoric,” he said.Although Schiavoni said he had some concerns with the impact of accessory apartments on neighbors, and suggested the town might want to create a review board to oversee the permitting practice, he said there was a clear need for more affordable housing. “Let’s not let perfect get in the way of good,” he said.The supervisor also disagreed with Scalera’s take, arguing that her figures were “grossly inflated,” although she stood by her numbers. He also disputed her contention that the law would violate fair housing standards, arguing that it is intended to target an imbalance that currently has most of the town’s affordable housing concentrated west of the Shinnecock Canal.The proposed law could be amended, Schneiderman added, to limit the number of permits that could be given in any year to 25 or 50. If the town board didn’t like the way the program was working, it could simply refuse to issue more permits,” he said.Councilwoman Julie Lofstad said even though the current law would not include Hampton Bays there may be people living in that hamlet who might want to take advantage of a such a program to be able to stay in their homes. The town has to be ready to hire more code enforcement officers to conduct inspections, she added.Councilman John Bouvier supported the measure, but said the town needs to also to look at the need to provide housing for seasonal workers.He added that if board members are concerned about code enforcement, they could require that inspections be conducted with each two-year lease and possibly catch problems before they grow too serious.The board asked Bak and Weir to continue working on the law and agreed to discuss it again at a future work email@example.com Share

Jacques Stoof, Mammoet’s director of innovation and market development explained that the main boom is erected vertically with the help of a climbing frame. Once the main boom is in place, the back mast can be installed vertically as well.“This eliminates the need to sterilize larger parts of a plant area for crane assembly. Neither is there any more need to build over live pipe racks in a plant. All in all, the assembly process is less complex, safer and more efficient, and significantly reduces the costly area and downtime of assembling a crane,” he said.The Focus crane’s upper structure is placed on a pedestal, which enhances stability and lowers ground bearing pressures to less than 10 tons (9.07 tonnes) per sq m on a surface of just 30 m x 30 m.The first Focus crane will be available in the second quarter of 2020. www.mammoet.com
Cuts to paralegals’ guideline hourly rates (GHR), reported by the Gazette last week, will prompt an urgent review of law firms’ approach to costs and staffing, leading practitioners predicted this week.John Bramhall (pictured), president of the 1,500-member London Solicitors Litigation Association, told the Gazette that if the rates involve substantial reductions for paralegals, ‘the current drive to hire paralegals in place of more qualified staff may be brought to a swift halt’.GHRs apply to summary judgment for the purposes of recovery of costs from the losing party in civil litigation. The rates are also used much more widely because of their acceptance by the courts.‘Many use the GHR as a failsafe,’ Sue Nash, chair of the Association of Costs Lawyers, said. A change in the rates ‘should encourage firms to look more closely at expense rates’.Richard Burcher, chairman of pricing and costs consultants Burcher Jennings, was critical of the principles used to reach guideline rates. ‘I continue to be dismayed at the simplistic, clumsy, myopic and one-dimensional approach that continues to be taken to this issue,’ he said.A ‘clear articulation of the need to take a granular and nuanced approach to pricing legal work and not simply rely on time billing’ is, Burcher urged, available in the principles set out in Civil Procedure Rule 44.4 and The Solicitors (Non-Contentious Business) Remuneration Order 2009.Burcher said that both could help by ‘determining what constitutes a fair and reasonable fee from the point of view of both the client and the practitioner’.Master of the rolls Lord Dyson is expected to make a decision on the rates, based on the report of a Civil Justice Council committee, shortly.
