A leading estate agent has taken a well-aimed swipe at competitors who have set up hub-and-spoke operations and reduced their branch networks during the Covid crisis.The comments have been made by John Halman (above, right), the well-known industry figure and founder of Cheshire’s leading estate agency Gascoigne Halman, which was bought in 2015 by the Connells Group.The estate agency has now made its latest acquisition after acquiring the business of Andrew Hayes (above, left) in the Cheshire market town of Frodsham, where he has operated a Your Move franchise and worked for more than 20 years.22nd branchThis will give Gascoigne Halman its 22nd branch and at the announcement of the deal, Halman said the purchase gave a ‘strong message’ to the market.“In what have been unprecedented times, many estate agents have taken a backwards step, with merged offices and less local service,” he said.“Our philosophy is completely the opposite. We believe that estate agency is a people business and that local knowledge, professionalism and dedicated customer service is what people deserve and require. “Andrew’s track record in Frodsham is second to none and we are delighted to welcome him into our business.”Hayes is to head up the new Gascoigne Halman office in Frodsham, its third new branch in recent months including in Chapel-en-le-Frith and Glossop.Gascoigne Halman is not afraid of controversy. The company was at the centre of an ultimately failed effort three years ago to break OnTheMarket’s ‘one other portal rule’, which it claimed was a ‘restrictive practice’.john halman andrew hayes Gascoigne Halman connells September 15, 2020Nigel LewisOne commentRussell Quirk, Properganda Properganda 15th September 2020 at 9:25 amPeople and branches are not the same thing.

As any Pensacola, Florida police officer will tell you, taking calls from the public to investigate “found property” or, in layman’s terms, shit left on the side of the street, will almost always bring you to an interesting find. Earlier today, Officer McLean used some of the useful skills he learned on Phish tour to crack the case of the mysterious roadside bag. Check out the hilarious post from the Pensacola Police Department’s Facebook below: A word to the wise: if this is your package, you should maybe not take Officer McLean up on his offer to chat–it probably won’t go well for you.
Prince‘s Paisley Park residence has witnessed some incredible recording sessions over the years. And just weeks before the icon’s untimely passing, he hooked up with legendary bassist MonoNeon to record a track titled “RUFF ENUFF” during a session back in January 2016.Also featured on the recording is New Power Generation drummer and long-time friend Kirk Johnson and saxophonist Adrian Crutchfield. “RUFF ENUFF” is a funky instrumental in the same vein of a Parliament-type joint, that was released as a TIDAL-exclusive “Purple Pick of The Week.” Give it a listen below:[via Okayplayer]
Now in its third year, the current drought has many Georgians wondering if the state will ever returnto normal weather. But state climatologist David Stooksbury saysthe drought is part of a historically more normal climate pattern.Stooksbury, who is also a professor of engineering in the Universityof Georgia College of Agricultural and Environmental Sciences,doesn’t see drought as strange or even unusual. But that doesn’tmean the state will be a desert anytime soon.”The state has now returned to a more normal climate pattern,with greater year-to-year variability,” Stooksbury said.Drought is part of the overall history of the Southeast, he said.The history also contains long periods of wetter weather.”We will have more years that are extremely wet and moreyears that are extremely dry, which is historically the more common pattern,” he said.Unusually Mild WeatherFarmers and others looking back now recall extended times of wet,mild weather in the 1960s and ’70s. That weather makes the currentdrought seem that much more unusual. But those days weren’t the”normal” that people think they were.”If you look back at droughts, the ’60s and ’70s were theabnormal years,” Stooksbury said. “They had very littlevariation.”In the ’60s, central Georgia had only one month of drought. Andthroughout the ’70s, the same area had only 13 months of moderate,extreme or severe drought.Drought Still Grips StateThough rains brought relief to parts of the parched state in September,Georgia remains under drought conditions. As of Oct. 27, the soilmoisture in 80 percent of the state was short to very short.State water restrictions remain in effect.The severity of the drought varies from region to region, Stooksburysaid. Georgia is the largest state east of the Mississippi River,and the state has a diverse landscape. This allows for variationsin the drought’s severity. The state’s northwestern corner isin mild drought, the west central area in severe drought and thesouth central part near normal for this time of year.A drought doesn’t start during summer. It’s what happens the winter before that marks the severity of a drought.”Wetter” Winter ExpectedWinter rains usually replenish the state’s soil moisture and thegroundwater supplies lost during the year. However, the past twowinters haven’t brought the needed rain.With the dissipation of the Nino family — for now — Stooksburysaid the state will probably return to near-normal rainfall thiswinter.”The global ocean temperature pattern is close to neutral,which means we don’t have the more robust, forcing pattern forthe weather,” he said. The state is less likely to have thewet winter of El Nino, but it’s also less likely to have the drywinter of La Nina.”We don’t have a well-defined guide for this winter,”Stooksbury said. “But we’ll tend toward a more normal winter.”He said another El Nino event is possible for the 2001-2002 winter.It would still take several months of above normal rainfall topull out of the drought, he said. Even normal rainfall throughwinter will not solve the problem.Going into the next growing season, Stooksbury believes the statewill have adequate soil moisture to germinate seeds. But groundwaterand deep-soil moisture levels will remain low.”We should have enough moisture in the top soils to get thecrops up,” Stooksbury said. “But there won’t be muchof a cushion for next year.”
By Julieta Pelcastre/Diálogo December 12, 2016 Major General Pilot Luis Napoleón Payán Díaz, commander general of the Dominican Republic Air Force (FARD, per its Spanish acronym), met with U.S. Marine Corps Brigadier General Paul J. Rock Jr., U.S. Southern Command (SOUTHCOM) director of Strategy, Policy and Plans (J-5), to boost cooperation in the fight against transnational organized crime networks. During his November 11th visit, Brig. Gen. Rock Jr. “familiarized himself with the needs of the Dominican Air Force, focusing on the operations that the military institution has carried out throughout the years in counter-narcotics operations,” FARD Colonel Pilot Regner G. Evins Feliz, aide to Commander General Payán Díaz, told Diálogo. The meeting was held at the Joint Operations Center of the Ministry of Defense in Santo Domingo. The senior military commanders discussed the importance of enhancing the training Dominican pilots receive in the use of night-vision goggles to strengthen nighttime activities against international drug trafficking, illegal migration, and arms smuggling. “The objective is to increase training opportunities for rotary-wing aircraft pilots— whether that is with specialists from the U.S. Army, Air Force, or other regional partners, such as Colombia,” Col. Evins said. “Night-vision technology and instruction is of the utmost importance for the Dominican Air Force, to provide support for the Navy or the National Drug Control Directorate (DNCD, per its Spanish acronym) in the fight against drug trafficking, by moving land units during both day and by night,” Col. Evins said. The officers also discussed SOUTHCOM’s Military Assistance Program. The FARD expressed their need to improve maintenance and resource management to increase the operational readiness rate of the Dominican Republic Air Force helicopter fleet. “The performance of the FARD is reduced if they do not have aircraft ready to engage in the flight time required for strong results,” Daniel Pou, associate director of Latin American Social Sciences Institute in the Dominican Republic told Diálogo. The Caribbean country is considered an important transit point for illicit drugs originating in South America. The United States Government, in its 2015 International Narcotics Control Strategy report, estimated that approximately six percent of all cocaine brought into the United States and Europe moves through the Dominican Republic. “Since 2008, the Dominican Air Force has impacted deterrence and managed to achieve a reduction in illicit air flights to zero,” Col. Evins said. “The main mission of the Dominican Air Force is to give support to the Dominican Republic’s Navy. Almost 100 percent of the leaders of criminal drug-smuggling organizations have moved to the sea. There are no borders for these organizations.” To strengthen security in the Caribbean country and throughout the region, the FARD is also working jointly with squadrons from other countries through the development of joint interdictions and trainings. These efforts at joint collaboration on regional security between the Dominican Armed Forces, the DNCD and SOUTHCOM are demonstrated through various programs such as the Caribbean Basin Security Initiative. The United States cooperates with the Dominican Armed Forces and the DNCD in several areas by providing support, intelligence, training, and specialized equipment. “Cooperation between the Dominican Republic and the United States in terms of the military is pertinent, especially regarding the area of aeronautics, so the FARD can play a support role in terms of law enforcement,” said Pou “Cooperation is increasingly important because the Dominican Republic is a bridge for all this ill [drug trafficking], which has an impact on society. The main way to have greater effectiveness in combating international drug smuggling is to continue combining efforts, exchanging information, training together, and giving each other support,” said Col. Evins. At the conclusion of the meeting, the Dominican authorities highlighted the commitment of their government and Armed Forces to increase cooperation. “We are committed and we are going to make our best effort so that, by working together, we have the best results in the fight against drug trafficking and other transnational crimes,” concluded Col. Evins.

SAN JOSE, Antique – There isn’t a patient under investigation (PUI) in WesternVisayas yet who has claimed for the Philippine Health Insurance Corporation’s(PHIC) new health insurance package. PHIC regional director Valerie Anne Hollero announced that PhilHealth’sCircular No. 2020-0004, which took effect on Jan. 30, provides a new healthinsurance package for the PUIs. It was crafted after the World HealthOrganization declared the coronavirus disease 2019 (COVID-19) as a publichealth emergency. Philippine Health Insurance Corporation (PHIC) regional director Valerie Anne Hollero (2nd from left) makes a courtesy call to Antique Governor Rhodora Cadiao on March 3.

PHILHEALTH REGION VI The two Antiqueños, – both seafarers – who tested negative of COVID-19could still claim the said package. Holero also said that she plans to hold a regular quarterly meetingwith the stakeholders of this province so that they could bring up to her thePHIC claims and other health-related concerns. Hollero added that since the said health insurance package is new, itmust be a reason why no PUI in Western Visayas has yet to make claim of it. “The PUIs could claim the benefits package even if their laboratoryresults turned out to be negative,” she added. Of the P14,000 benefit package, the 30 percent of it will be for theprofessional fee of the attending physician and the remaining 70 percent willbe for the laboratory examination, medical supplies and the room where the PUIwas admitted. “We will regularly have a meeting with the healthcare providers so thatthere would be smooth sailing relations,” she said. (PNA) “There is a new benefits package for the PUIs in the amount ofPHP14,000,” she said.
