first_imgThe Welsh Housing Minister has claimed that the “vast majority” of people and organisation who contributed to a recent consultation on letting fees in Wales support her government’s proposed tenant fees ban including a “significant number of landlords”. Rebecca Evans, Minister for Housing and Regeneration (pictured), said 700 responses were received from tenants, landlords and letting agents and said early analysis of these responses revealed “strong support for action in this area”. Although a full response to the consultation is not expected until the New Year, the Minister says support for a ban is strong enough for her to reveal that a ban will now go ahead, bringing Wales in line with Scotland and soon, England.“I have therefore instructed my officials to proceed with plans to develop legislation,” she says.“Officials will also begin a programme of engagement with stakeholders to share information and help us shape detailed plans about how future legislation would work in practice.”Tenant fees banIt would appear that the Minister has not been swayed by ARLA’s postition that a ban would make renting more expensive in the long run, a claim it made in July when a proposed Welsh fees ban was unveiled. “Agents have to make their individual voices heard alongside ARLA Propertymark’s collective response,” ARLA Chief Executive David Cox (pictured, left) said at the time. “Our independent research shows beyond doubt that this legislation would ultimately cost tenants more.” But Rebecca Evans says in her statement that the evidence “supports the view that agents’ and other fees have made the private rented sector unaffordable and inaccessible for some individuals and families”.rebecca evans ARLA David Cox fees ban Welsh letting fees ban December 5, 2017Nigel LewisWhat’s your opinion?

first_img Gavel Gamut By Jim RedwinePEG’S MOTTO: JIM’S LABOR OMNIA VINCITThis famous Latin phrase, “Work Conquers All”, was originally a piece of propaganda used by the Roman poet Virgil (70 BC-19 BC) in his poem Georgics to curry favor with the Roman emperor Augustus (63 BC- 14 AD). Augustus wanted to encourage Roman citizens to quit their enjoyable lives of drinking wine and discussing politics to take up the hard work of farming. Peg, and maybe your spouse too, has carried on this tradition.In the beginning were the innocent sounding words, “Jim, are you taking a vacation this summer?” I thoughtlessly replied, “I dunno, why?” “Oh, I just thought we could spend some time together at the Ranch, relax and catch up on some things.”“Sounds good, I’ll check my docket.” Unfortunately, it wasn’t too busy. I aimlessly proceeded into Peg’s nefarious Inferno.Wives and husbands see “relaxing” and “catching up on things” from different perspectives, kinda like foxes and roosters might see dinner. The first two weeks of August were anticipated by me to be a bucolic period of connecting with the deer, fish, wild turkeys and even the pesky raccoons around JPeg Ranch. What could be wrong with some time spent with my feet up and a good book or a cool beverage to lull me to sleep on a lazy summer afternoon? Ask Peg!“Since you are home with nothing to do would you mind …?” Yep, the dreaded LIST!  Peg had been secretly working on it since spring. I had no idea our home was near the point of complete collapse from chores undone, by me, of course. Immediate action was called for. What wasn’t called for, or allowed, was propped up feet.Now one need not be mentally exhausted from reading or relating a seriatim rundown of the physically exhausting chores that stood between “relax” and utter destruction of our home. Their actual completion was punishment enough. Suffice it to say that from tilling the garden, to reorganizing my stacks of half-finished projects from years past, my vacation morphed from pastoral pleasure to a yearning for a return to Court. I’ll be there on Monday!For more Gavel Gamut articles go to or“Like” us on Facebook at JPegRanchBooksandKnittingFacebookTwitterCopy LinkEmailSharelast_img read more

first_imgLawyers in the Legislature March 15, 2006 Regular News Seiler finds common ground Gary Blankenship Senior Editor The letter denoting political affiliation that comes after Jack Seiler’s name is a “D.”But the state representative from Wilton Manors in Broward County said being a Democrat does not define his legislative outlook.“I actually love politics,” he said. “I love the people in the process. I love the debate. I love the discussion. It’s very rewarding.”However, he is quick to add, “I’m not real partisan. One of the reasons I have not been real active with party politics is I don’t particularly like the partisan part of politics. I like working together, finding common ground.”In addition, Seiler said he considers himself a father of four, a husband “to a great wife,” and a lawyer first when he reviews legislation before he considers himself a Democrat. Indeed, it’s not uncommon for a Republican legislator to say he or she had their legislation reviewed by Seiler before it was introduced or while it was being considered in committee. Seiler said he’s glad to do it.“I tend to try to be a little bit of a legislator’s lawyer, where I have some positive impact on the process,” he said. “My rule has always been if it’s a really bad bill try to kill it, if it’s a good bill, do something to make it better, and if it’s a great bill, just get out of the way.”That, again, comes from his views of the process and the people he deals with, and his love of politics.“There are some great people in this process. To get to the House of Representatives, to get to the Senate, to get to the upper tier of the executive and judicial branches, they are quality people,” he said. “It’s no different than taking a deposition in a really good lawsuit — you look around and see four or five really good lawyers in the room. Eighty percent of the people in this process are quality people, regardless of party.”But his willingness to work with others doesn’t mean Seiler is silent on issues. During a recent House Judicial Committee debate on a bill to repeal the last vestiges of joint and several liability, Seiler was an outspoken critic of the measure.Proponents of the bill argued it was unfair that tort defendants should be forced to pay any more than their percentage of fault, as determined by a judge or jury. (A 1999 bill had already eliminated joint and several for noneconomic damages and limited it for economic damages in many cases.)Seiler offered two amendments. The first would eliminate more than 70 non-tort uses of joint and several liability in Florida Statutes. The second would have ended all damage caps and immunities provided in state law, except for sovereign immunity. Seiler argued if joint and several liability was bad for tort cases, then it should be removed from all statutory provisions. Likewise, if bill proponents argued that defendants should be responsible only for the damage they cause, then there should be no caps or immunities in the statute that relieve them of that responsibility.He withdrew both amendments when it was apparent they had no chance to pass the committee, but they allowed Seiler to make his points.In this year’s session, Seiler predicts the issues of most interest to lawyers will include tort bills, including premises liability, and potential constitutional amendments. The latter includes an effort to streamline the constitution by removing outdated provisions and perhaps making some sections statutory instead of constitutional, and a possible amendment to overturn the Supreme Court’s recent ruling in Bush v. Holmes on vouchers.“I think joint and several is going to come up for a vote. I think you’re going to see an all out fight on the floor of the Senate,” Seiler said. “It will pass the House, despite my opposition.”The constitutional amendments cause Seiler much concern. While he supports an amendment that would require two-thirds of the voters to approve an amendment that has a significant financial impact on the state budget, he questions other efforts.“When we start saying, ‘Well, we’re going to require a super majority for something to be heard’ and saying, ‘Well, we’re going to move certain things to the statutes and we’ll decide what’s best for you,’ that’s not necessarily the best approach,” Seiler said. “The constitution doesn’t belong to the Republicans and it doesn’t belong to the Democrats. It doesn’t belong to the House and it doesn’t belong to the Senate. It belongs to all Floridians. And I think we ought to handle it with the utmost respect.”Politics has always been an interest of Seilers. “I think I was class president from the first grade through my sophomore year,” he said with a laugh. His nickname in the seventh grade was Senator Seiler, he was class treasurer for his junior year, and then class president as a senior.At Notre Dame, he was president of the largest dorm on campus.Seiler got his law degree from the University of Miami in 1988, and shortly thereafter was appointed to the Board of Adjustment in Wilton Manors. In 1993, he was elected to the Wilton Manors City Council, and he served as vice mayor from 1996-98 and as mayor from 1998-2000.That year he was elected to the legislature, and has been reelected since. He has filed for reelection this year, but is term-limited from running again in 2008. After that, “I will kind of wait and see,” he said. “I’ve taken the approach I’m not going to run statewide for office until my kids are a little older. I love that role as a father. I will definitely stay active in politics. But to tell you what that elected position is, I couldn’t.”The legislative respite will also allow Seiler, who maintains a full-time trial practice at Seiler, Sautter, Zaden & Rimes, more time for his professional work. Lawyers in the Legislature Bogdanoff fights from within Jan Pudlow Senior Editor Not a mid-life crisis, but more of a career crossroads drew Ellyn Setnor Bogdanoff to graduate from law school at age 43, where her eyes were opened to the reality that sometimes innocent people are wrongly convicted. And it was “by accident and certainly not by design,” she said, that landed her in politics. Now she is the 46-year-old Republican state House representative from Democratic-dominated Broward County, who is co-sponsoring a bill to do away with a deadline for DNA testing for innocence, even for those who plead guilty.Soon after she sold her interest in an insurance firm she’d owned for 16 years, she was recruited to run for school board in Broward County. She lost, but admits she’d been “bitten by the political bug.”Her next unsuccessful race was for state Senate, won by Democratic opponent Steve Geller.So while working as political consultant and raising three children with husband Steven Bogdanoff, she decided to go to Nova Southeastern University’s law school. That’s where she wound up working on the Innocence Project, mainly because it offered clinical experience with flexible hours.“Coming from the background I did and the perspective I had, it was an interesting challenge I had to work on the Innocence Project. I think I had a preconceived notion a lot of us have to want to put our heads in the sand and think everyone in jail belongs there. You don’t want to believe our system can be flawed where innocent people can go to jail.“I don’t think I was naïve, because of my activism with child advocacy. But it opened a new world for me,” Bogdanoff said, adding “there were a couple of cases that were shocking in terms of how they were convicted with little or no evidence.”In January 2003, before she graduated from law school in May, and a full year before she was elected to office, Bogdanoff overheard a law professor talking about DNA testing legislation that would remove the deadline (now July 1, 2006).“They weren’t familiar with my background and I offered to assist,” Bogdanoff said. Since 2003, she has been working on raising consciousness about DNA testing to free the innocent. What began as a difficult issue has become easier in the past year, she said, thanks to the notoriety of three Florida men all wrongly convicted of rape who each spent more than 20 years behind bars before DNA testing set them free.“I have always said it is critical that to protect the integrity of the judicial system we have to admit we make errors,” Bogdanoff said. “There is no logical reason to put a deadline on proving innocence.”Focused on passing the bar exam, Bogdanoff said she was “obsessed whether I passed or failed.” She was sworn in as a new lawyer in September 2003. The very next month, she jumped into her third — and ultimately successful — race when her best opportunity to win arrived. Connie Mack, IV, who served as a Republican House representative, decided to run for Congress.“I just kind of inquired,” Bogdanoff said, and a good friend persuaded her to take a run at the rare Republican seat in Broward County.So within a few days, her campaign was up and running, and she enlisted help from her three children Matthew, Alec, and Danna (now 22, 19, and 14), who went door-to-door. “It’s hard to say no when someone says: ‘Would you vote for my mom?’” Bogdanoff said with a laugh.The third time was a charm.After working a year at Atkinson, Diner, Stone, Mankuta, and Plouche in Ft. Lauderdale, Bogdanoff said she is going to “regroup after the session” and run her own solo practice where she plans to move into transactional and legal consulting that will put her insurance and business background to good use.Right now, she is focused on her third legislative session.Besides the DNA bill (HB 61), Bogdanoff is co-sponsoring HB 247, a beverage law that will regulate the new relaxed laws on importing wine via mail and the Internet, after the U.S. Supreme Court in May 2005 overturned wine shipping bans in New York and Michigan, calling them discriminatory because they treated out-of-state wineries differently from in-state operations.“People ask me: ‘Why did you get interested if you don’t really drink?’ I wouldn’t know whether to order a chardonnay or a merlot,” Bogdanoff said. “To me, it’s a free market issue. Constitutional law was my favorite in law school. I thought it would be neat to be involved in a high-profile constitutional issue.”Another bill she sponsors is HB 535 on school safety, an anti-bullying bill.“There is a fine line between school-yard bantering and kids being kids and criminal behavior,” Bogdanoff said.Working in the fray at the Capitol, she said, is both “challenging and frustrating,” but she wouldn’t want to be anywhere else.“It’s very dynamic and fast-paced and it gives me the opportunity to fight from within. I spent many years fighting to change things from the outside,” said Bogdanoff, whose long public service resume in Broward County includes chairing the Broward County Children’s Services Board, serving on as a member of the Human Rights Board (1997-2000), the Homeless Initiative Partnership Advisory Board (2000), and the Children’s Home Society board (1989-99).Now in the statewide arena of debating public policy, she said: “It is exciting to be in the middle of it and change things from the inside, to have a voice at the table.. . . “There is a tremendous amount of satisfaction in being able to serve. It’s the ultimate in public service and serving your community.”last_img read more

Lower-level Tokyo 2020 officials who travelled to Greece last week will accompany the flame back to Japan.Some 20 airline and airport staff waved the plane off with very little fanfare at the airport, which was almost empty as travel restrictions aimed at stopping the spread of the virus have lead to widespread flight cancellations.The Olympic flame will arrive on Japanese soil on Friday at Matushima airbase and be greeted by another low key ceremony.Despite sporting events being cancelled across the world in response to the coronavirus outbreak, Olympics organizers maintain the Games will start as planned on July 24.The International Olympic Committee said on Tuesday that it does not plan any “drastic” decisions about the Games, saying it remains fully committed to the event being staged in four months’ time despite the global spread of the coronavirus. A plane sporting Tokyo 2020 livery departed Haneda International Airport on Wednesday bound for Athens to collect the Olympic flame, but there was no delegation from organizers onboard due to concerns about the coronavirus pandemic.Tokyo 2020 said it chose not to send the high-level delegation, which was originally set to include organizing committee president Yoshiro Mori and Olympics minister Seiko Hashimoto, to Greece due to the coronavirus.The flu-like virus has killed more than 7,500 people and brought sport to a standstill around the world.last_img read more

first_img“HDF is very excited to cooperate with ABB to assemble and produce megawatt-scale fuel cell systems for the marine market based on Ballard technology,” said Damien Havard, CEO of HDF. The MOU envisages close collaboration on the assembly and production of the fuel cell power plant for marine applications.ABB has already teamed up with Ballard Power Systems on the development of the megawatt-scale fuel cell power plant, which will serve as the basis for the new system planned to be manufactured at HDF’s new facility in Bordeaux, France. Fuel cells turn the chemical energy from hydrogen into electricity through an electrochemical reaction. With the use of renewables to produce the hydrogen, the entire energy chain can be clean. Technology firm ABB has signed a Memorandum of Understanding (MOU) with Hydrogène de France to jointly manufacture megawatt-scale fuel cell systems capable of powering ocean-going vessels. Image Credit: ABB “With the ever-increasing demand for solutions that enable sustainable, responsible shipping, we are confident that fuel cells will play an important role in helping the marine industry meet CO2 reduction targets,” said Juha Koskela, Managing Director, ABB Marine & Ports. center_img The zero-emission technology is capable of powering ships sailing short distances, as well as supporting auxiliary energy requirements of larger vessels. “Signing the MOU with HDF brings us a step closer to making this technology available for powering ocean-going vessels.” The pursuit is in line with the ever-growing pressure for the marine industry to decarbonize its operations. The IMO has set a global target to cut annual emissions by at least 50 percent by 2050 from 2008 levels.last_img read more

first_img A subdued Villa Park was expecting to party after they sealed survival last week but ended watching in almost silence as the hosts stuttered. And they were almost stunned again on 26 minutes when Ings should have doubled Burnley’s lead. George Boyd tricked his way to the byline and left Charles N’Zogbia trailing but Ings could only balloon his cross over. The quiet Benteke then saw a volley deflect wide eight minutes before the break, before Heaton saved his downward header two minutes later. It was at least signs of life from Villa who, up until then, played in second gear and allowed Burnley too much time and space. Heaton tipped Westwood’s stinging drive over in first-half injury time and Villa kept pressing after the break. Benteke and Fabian Delph lashed wide but while the hosts improved they lacked the quality to breakthrough. Yet Agbonlahor should have levelled on 63 minutes when he fired straight at Heaton after Benteke had bulldozed his way through. Instantly, though, Burnley broke and Steer needed to block Boyd’s attempted chip after the midfielder broke past Villa’s static defence. It was the Clarets’ only second-half chance as the hosts continued to make the running and Heaton needed to be at his agile best to deny Delph and N’Zogbia in quick succession. First, he turned Delph’s shot away before tipping over N’Zogbia’s rising drive a minute later. But Villa’s threat waned with Burnley having the luxury of substituting Ings to consolidate their lead at the death. But the striker’s first-half winner still meant the Clarets finished second bottom as they made a swift return to the Football League. It was his 11th of the season and possibly last strike for the club with the out-of-contract forward expected to leave Turf Moor in the summer. Press Association Burnley signed off from the Barclays Premier League with a deserved 1-0 win at Aston Villa as Danny Ings gave them a perfect leaving present. Villa, subdued for most of the first half, struggled to make a breakthrough although Tom Heaton saved from Gabriel Agbonlahor, Christian Benteke and Ashley Westwood. Defeat saw Villa finish fourth bottom in the Premier League, ahead of the FA Cup final with Arsenal on Saturday, after another brush with the drop. With one eye on Wembley, Tim Sherwood handed keeper Jed Steer his top-flight debut while Nathan Baker returned from a knee injury and Agbonlahor was also recalled. Michael Keane and Fredrik Ulvestad started for Burnley with the Clarets having already been relegated. But Sean Dyche’s side refused to go without one last fight and hit the winner after just six minutes. Ings cashed in on poor Villa defending when he looped a header over Steer after Ashley Barnes’ clever knock down. It allowed the visitors to open up and they were the more adventurous as Villa struggled to find any momentum. But they still should have levelled after 16 minutes only for Ron Vlaar to blaze wide from 15 yards after Tom Cleverley found him free in the box. last_img read more

first_imgIn the second ball of the over, Jadhav slanted in a flatter delivery on off stump and Neesham looked to defend. The ball took the inside edge onto the thigh pad but Dhoni and Jadhav appealed for the LBW. Umpire Shaun George shook his head but Neesham did not know where the ball had gone. The left-hander attempted a run as Dhoni continued to appeal looking at the umpire. However, the former India captain realised that Neesham was out of his crease and fired a throw at the striker’s end to catch Neesham well short of the crease.Dhoni celebrated passionately, knowing that the dangerman was gone. The third umpire gave the marching orders for Neesham and India had regained the advantage. If there was one moment which turned the match, it was the run-out by Dhoni and Rohit Sharma will have to thank him as India won the five-match series 4-1 against New Zealand. highlights New Delhi: It is now officially confirmed without a shadow of doubt! MS Dhoni is a freak of nature. He can read the batsmen’s mind, tell the bowler what to do exactly and effect lightning quick stumpings which are a modern marvel. His game awareness was simply sublime in the Napier ODI thanks to the way how he advised Kuldeep Yadav to get rid of Trent Boult while his stumping off Ross Taylor in the second ODI at Bay Oval was divine. After missing the next two games in Bay Oval and Hamilton due to a hamstring injury, Dhoni returned for the Wellington ODI where he pulled off yet another astonishing feat of keeping.Ambati Rayudu’s brilliant 90 and Hardik Pandya’s blitz of 45 off 22 balls helped India reach 252 all out. In response, New Zealand lost wickets at regular intervals but they were boosted by a blazing knock from James Neesham. The left-hander struck boundaries at regular intervals and was nearing a fifty. He struck two boundaries off Mohammed Shami and he launched Bhuvneshwar Kumar for a boundary and a six over deep midwicket. However, the game changed decisively in the 37th over bowled by Kedar Jadhav. For all the Latest Sports News News, Cricket News News, Download News Nation Android and iOS Mobile Apps.
