Paul Fosh shuns the ballroom forever

first_imgPaul Fosh, back in 2001 Paul Fosh Auctions has ruled out a return to terrestrial sales after almost a year of operating completely online. The Newport-based property sales and lettings business, which celebrated two decades in business in February, is preparing to post its best ever annual sales figures after operating ‘virtually’ for the past year.Until Spring 2020 the property business, consistently number one for sales and revenue in Wales, would attract some 250-300 people to its bi-monthly auctions in Cardiff. Its last live auction, a ballroom sale planned for March 2020 was axed with the first lockdown.Paul Fosh, who started the business in February 2001 said, “Although I enjoy standing on a rostrum in front of a room full of people, the stats prove why we should never go back to a room sale. Online we have thousands of people registered to bid. With the best will in the world in a room sale we have between 250 and 300 people in an auction room with probably only half of those registered to bid.“The online sales attract bids from people across some sixty countries and record more than 100,000 hits on the website during a typical online sale. People bid from wherever they may be, on their smart phones and mobile devices, sitting by the pool and across all time zones.”www.paulfoshauctions.comPaul Fosh Auctions online bids online auctions Cardiff Wales March 16, 2021Jenny van BredaWhat’s your opinion?

Bail set at $1 million for former officer charged in George Floyd’s death

first_imgA Minneapolis judge has set the bail for the former officer accused in the death of George Floyd at $1 million.The decision was made Monday afternoon via a partically, virtual hearing.Derek Chauvin appeared at the hearing virtually from Oak Park Heights’ maximum security prison but he, nor his attorney, contested the bail which was initially set at $500,000.Chauvin is facing third-degree murder and second-degree manslaughter charges after kneeling on Floyd’s neck for nearly 9 minutes while Floyd laid on his stomach with his hands cuffed behind his back.Three other officers who were also present during the arrest, have been charged with aiding and abetting second-degree murder.  The other officers are currently being held at Hennepin County jail on $750,000 bond, according to the Associated Press.last_img read more

US changing suits after dismal speedskating start

first_imgShani Davis of the U.S., center, puts on the prototype of the official US Speedskating suit, while coach Ryan Shimabukuro checks his phone prior to a training session at the Adler Arena Skating Center at the 2014 Winter Olympics, Friday, Feb. 14, 2014, in Sochi, Russia. (AP Photo/Matt Dunham)SOCHI, Russia (AP) — They were touted as the fastest speedskating suits in the world.Now the U.S. is dumping the high-tech attire after a dismal start to the Sochi Olympics.Kevin Haley, vice president of innovation for suit developer Under Armour, told The Associated Press on Friday the Americans had received permission to go back to the suits they used while posting impressive results on the fall World Cup circuit and at the U.S. Olympic trials in December.The change begins Saturday with the men’s 1,500 meters, when Shani Davis hopes to make up for a disappointing performance in his first race at Sochi. Under Armour was busy altering the logo on the old suits, so it conforms with International Olympic Committee regulations.“We want to put the athletes in the best possible position when they’re stepping on the ice to be 100 percent confident in their ability to capture a spot on the podium,” Haley said by phone from Baltimore.The change was a stunning reversal after the Americans arrived in Sochi proclaiming they had a suit that would give them a technological edge over rival countries such as the Netherlands.Instead, the Dutch have dominated through the first six races, winning 12 of a possible 18 medals, including four golds. The Americans have yet to finish higher than seventh; Davis and female stars Heather Richardson and Brittany Bowe have all been major disappointments.While Haley expressed confidence in the new suit, saying all the data proved it should produce faster times, he said the company agreed to the change because a few athletes felt it was actually a drag on their times.“If they have one less thing to be distracted by,” Haley said, “that should give them a little bit of an advantage.”The new skinsuits, developed with help from aerospace and defense giant Lockheed Martin and unveiled just before the Sochi Olympics, had definitely become a major distraction.Even though several coaches and athletes defended the technology, it was clear that U.S. Speedskating needed to change things up to make sure this didn’t become a total bust of a Winter Games.“Morale is down right now,” said Joey Mantia, another of the U.S. skaters in the 1,500.The new suit, known as “Mach 39,” has become a convenient explanation for the American woes, since they were unveiled so late in the game, without giving the skaters a chance to wear them in competition.Even before the Olympics began, the designer of the Dutch suits expressed skepticism about the American claims. Bert van der Tuuk said he even tested some of the elements used in the U.S. suit — rivets, seams, bumps and a diagonal zipper to cut down on drag — and found they provided no significant edge.Others backed the new suits. Haley said the majority of the team wanted to stick with it, but the change was made to make sure everyone was comfortable. ISU rules require the entire team to wear the same suit.“There’s absolutely no doubt in my mind that this is the most scientific suit in the whole world,” said U.S. skater Patrick Meek. “These guys make F-16 fighter jets. If they can invade Afghanistan and Iraq, they can build a speedskating suit.”The Dutch athletes began testing their own new suits during the World Cup season and were allowed to use them at the country’s highly competitive Olympic trials.U.S. coach Kip Carpenter said there are plenty of plausible reasons for the U.S. woes beyond the suits.“The human factor is by far the largest piece out there,” said Carpenter, a former skater and Olympic medalist. “There’s not an athlete out there who is slowing down a second per lap because of the suit they’re in. What is it: a parachute on their back?”Another U.S. coach, Matt Kooreman, questioned whether the team peaked too soon and became complacent after their impressive World Cup showings.“Did we lay off the gas after it looked like things were going well?” he said. “I’m sure the Dutch went back home after those North American World Cups and were really in attack mode.”Before going back to the old suit, Under Armour attempted some low-tech alterations to the new model.“They did adjust one part on the back, but it was just putting rubber over the mesh there,” Richardson said after a disappointing performance in the 1,000, a race she dominated during the World Cup season. “It had no effect really.”Looking to become the first male speedskater to win the same event at three straight games, Davis finished eighth in the 1,000 on Wednesday — the first indication that something might be seriously wrong with the U.S. preparation.On Thursday, Richardson was seventh and Bowe eighth over the same distance for the women, another staggering blow given Richardson had won three World Cup events this season and Bowe took the other with a world-record time.“It’s sad,” Mantia said. “I almost cried … watching that race.”Davis, a two-time silver medalist in the 1,500, was attempting to remain confident despite all the turmoil surrounding the suits.“I didn’t come all this way to start having doubts,” he said, trying to muster a smile after his off-day workout. “I trained really hard. I’m focused. I’m feeling good. I’m going to go out there and do the best I can. That’s all I can do.”When it came to the new suits, he was more guarded with his words.“Suit or no suit, I’ve got to go out there and try to win,” he said.As a U.S. Speedskating media official tried to hustle Davis out of the mixed zone, he stopped to answer another question.“It’s not their fault,” he told the official, indicating he didn’t mind the reporters’ questions on the suits, which clearly have become a major issue within the team.Then again, maybe it’s not the suits at all.Michel Mulder, who led a Dutch sweep of the medals in the men’s 500, offered another explanation.“It could also be,” he said of the Americans, “that they were just outclassed here.”___Follow Paul Newberry on Twitter at read more


first_imgFAVORED SENSITIVELY FALLS AFTER WIRE, SENDING TALAMO TO HOSPITAL FOR EXAMARCADIA, Calif. (April 5, 2015)–Enchanting Lady cut back in distance, took a steep drop in class and responded with a 2 ¼ length win in Sunday’s $75,000 Santa Paula Stakes and in less than 24 hours, reunited the winning Santa Anita Derby connections of trainer Bob Baffert, owner Kaleem Shah and jockey Martin Garcia. Breaking from the outside in a field of six 3-year-old fillies, Enchanting Lady stalked favored Sensitively into the far turn, took the lead approaching the quarter pole and finished up 6 ½ furlongs in 1:15.01.“The last few days have been a lot fun,” said Shah. “I named this filly after my wife and she really came through today. I had a lot of confidence coming into today. Bob told me she’s good sprinting and hopefully she can continue to move forward off of this.”A rousing 6 ¼ length winner of the 5 ½ furlong Landaluce Stakes as a maiden on June 22, Enchanting Lady came off the bench to run fifth in the Grade III, 1 1/16 miles Santa Ysabel Stakes Feb. 28. The second choice in the wagering at 3-1, she paid $8.60, $4.20 and $2.80. The Santa Paula was her second win from four tries and with the winner’s share of $46,080, she increased her earnings to $134,280.I think she wants to run six, six and half, or seven (furlongs),” said Garcia. “When she ran the other day, she really needed that race and it helped. We had good results today.”Trained by Jerry Hollendorfer and ridden by Mike Smith, Tara’s Tango was second best, finishing three lengths clear of Ben’s Duchess. Off at 3-1, Tara’s Tango paid $4.80 and $3.20.Ridden by Drayden Van Dyke, Ben’s Duchess finished third at 5-1 and paid $3.60 to show.Ridden by Joe Talamo, Sensitively, who was off at 6-5, stopped badly a furlong out and fell shortly past the wire, unseating Talamo, who was transported to Huntington Memorial Hospital in Pasadena for examination. Sensitively got up right away and appeared uninjured.Racing resumes at Santa Anita on Thursday, with first post time at 1 p.m. Admission gates open at 11 a.m. –30–last_img read more

40% Will Switch to Android for Next Phone, Says Survey

first_imgA survey commissioned by independent third-party mobile application store GetJar found that 40% of respondents claimed they will switch to an Android device when it comes time to purchase their next mobile phone. In comparison, only 18% said they would switch to iPhone. This, proclaims GetJar’s headlining of the news, means Android will trump iPhone “two-to-one.”Of course, there are a couple of problems with this data.For starters, surveys that ask consumers what they will do are often not nearly as accurate as those which show what consumers actually did. Sure, people may say they’re switching to an Android phone, but when push comes to shove (and when they discover the $49 iPhone 3GS), will these switchers follow through? We can’t possibly know.Additional DataThe survey also measured other trends, including app usage. It found that nearly 34% of consumers spent one hour or more using apps per day, compared with the 49% who spend the same amount of time watching TV. 58%, meanwhile, said they use mobile apps more than once a day.When it comes to app choice, the survey respondents said that the quality of the brand made the app trustworthy (80%). And 72% said they would engage with a brand more if the brand’s app was good.Advertisements within the apps don’t seem to be discouraging users, either, based on this survey’s results. 73% said they had downloaded an app with ads and 60% said they would do it again.The part of the survey that’s most pertinent to GetJar’s business is the part detailing issues with app discovery. Only 25% said they discovered the app they wanted by browsing through a mobile app store. 50% had discovered apps while browsing online and nearly 17% had discovered apps through friends or social media, the results showed.A few other details from the survey:Gaming apps are the most popular, followed closely by social networking apps.The amount of free apps and the ease of search topped the list of things users look for in an app store.The cost of an app was the biggest deciding factor in whether to download an app or not.Do You Trust the Survey?While none of the findings seem all that incredulous, these survey results are really good news for GetJar, which, of course, makes one a little suspicious.  Even the press release notes the positive impact this has for the company, mentioning how GetJar recently announced it secured $25 million in Series C funding from Tiger Global Management.  The money will be used to “aggressively expand its offering to Android publishers in order to secure its position as the premier ‘open’ Android Market alternative.”So Android trumping iPhone, two-to-one? Maybe. But we’ll wait for another source – one with nothing to gain by this news – confirms.

Transport disruptions hit Greece as union protests cutbacks

first_imgATHENS, Greece — Nationwide train and island ferry services have been suspended for a day in Greece, together with most Athens public transport, as the country’s biggest labour union strikes against persisting austerity measures.Tuesday’s strike is being organized by the GSEE umbrella private sector union, which also includes many categories of civil servants.The GSEE and a smaller Communist labour union are also planning separate protest marches through Athens to the house of parliament.The unions want the left-led government to scrap key income and pension cuts imposed at the demand of international creditors during Greece’s eight-year bailout program.The program formally ended in August but the measures are expected to remain in place for years to ensure Greece can keep its budgets balanced and pay off its bailout debts.The Associated Presslast_img read more
