first_img whatsapp Business failures in London fall by 16 per cent, says report Share KCS-content BUSINESS failures in London fell by 16 per cent in the third quarter of 2101 compared to a year earlier, according to a new report.The Equifax Business Failures Report found failures across the country fell by 13.4 per cent year-on-year, with the number of failures for the quarter standing at 6,646.However, this is still well above pre-recession levels of around 5,000 per quarter. The drop compared to the second quarter is 7.4 per cent.The best performing region was Scotland, which saw a 33 per cent drop year-on-year.An Equifax spokesman said: “Businesses across the UK should be buoyed by our report and the steady fall in insolvencies in London echoes the trend across the UK. Overall, the downward trend in failures has been sustained quarter-on-quarter through the year. “Whilst our latest analysis of the business failures data is encouraging and shows that all sorts of organisations are taking steps to tackle late payments and bad debts, there is still a long way to go and businesses need to continue protecting themselves from the tough trading conditions.

Is the Apopka City Center finally beginning?

first_img Kevin City Council Preview: Hilton Garden Inn expected to be the first project under the City Center bannerThe Apopka City Center has been described as a pillar of economic development, and it has been on the community’s horizon for years, but is it about to break ground soon and become a reality?The Apopka City Council will hear a proposal and then discuss the Final Development Plan (FDP) submitted for the Apopka City Center Hilton Garden Inn Hotel at tonight’s 7 PM meeting. It is the first time the project has appeared before Mayor Bryan Nelson and new City Commissioners Alice Nolan and Alexander H. Smith since taking office.The City Center, which is expected to comprise approximately 35 acres centrally located at the interchange of U.S. Highway 441 and State Road 436, is proposed for 207,000 square feet of restaurants, retail, and office space as well as a hotel and homes. Eleven acres are proposed to be a community park, pond, and boardwalk. The long-term plan, which phases-in the project through the next 20 years, includes a possible 180 acres of development.According to the agenda packet for the June 20th meeting, the proposed hotel will be located within the Apopka City Center development, specifically on the northeast corner of McGee Avenue and East 6th Street. The property is subject to a Development Agreement, which allows staff-level approval of the FDP. Therefore, it will be presented to the City Council for discussion purposes only.The procedures for review of the proposed development within the City Center is established within a development agreement between the City of Apopka and Taurus Southern Investments. Accordingly, the development agreement authorizes the Development Review Committee to approve the FDP within the City Center if it is found consistent with the City Center development and zoning standards and the City’s Land Development Code. The City Council has already approved the Master Plan and Preliminary Development Plan for the City Center through the executed Development Agreement.The Apopka City Center Hilton Garden InnBack in April 2017, The City of Apopka closed on a sale of these first two parcels for the new Apopka City Center. It was described as “a major project that will transform downtown into an attractive mix of stores, restaurants, professional offices and a scenic public park,” from a statement released by the City’s public information office at the time.The City negotiated the sale of two city-owned properties to development partner Taurus Southern Investments comprising about two acres south of Main Street in Apopka. Both parcels are part of Apopka’s Highland Manor facility. Taurus seeks to continue using Highland Manor as a destination for meetings, weddings, and special events.Under a development agreement approved by the Apopka City Council in July 2016, Taurus will acquire parcels over time to develop the City Center.“Apopka residents have been looking forward to the redevelopment of our downtown business district for more than a decade,” said then-Apopka Mayor Joe Kilsheimer. “Today’s transaction represents concrete progress toward making that happen. Based on reports from the Taurus team, I am very encouraged by what I’m hearing about the prospects for the kinds of businesses that our City Center will attract.”The two parcels comprise about two acres south of Main Street in Apopka. Both parcels are part of Apopka’s Highland Manor facility.Jeff McFadden, managing director for Taurus Southern Investments, said back in April:“We are very excited that we are able to take the first steps toward fulfilling everyone’s desire for a successful and vibrant City Center in Apopka.” You have entered an incorrect email address! Please enter your email address here TAGSCity CenterHighland ManorTaurus Southern InvestmentsThe Apopka City CouncilThe Apopka Hilton Garden Inn Previous articleThe Apopka Voice hits another publishing milestoneNext article#AllWomenCount: art and culture at the forefront of World Refugee Day Denise Connell RELATED ARTICLESMORE FROM AUTHOR I heard Mr. Hitt, a city staffer, at last night’s city council meeting say that Taurus development purchased the Highland Manor from the city. What was the purchase price of the home then, because it was my understanding, that the house was just sitting there upon the acreage, that sold for $150,000 per acre…so did the city actually get an additional price for that for the historic home, that was sitting upon the $150,000 acre? I know Mr. Hitt discussed the $300,000 improvement that Taurus put into the home, once they acquired the old home, but was there an additional price other than the acreage, that the home sale brought to the city coffers? Inquiring minds want to know. Mama Mia The Anatomy of Fear The City Center has been long-anticipated in Apopka. The project started more than a decade ago when the city purchased much of the proposed property from 2006 to 2011. The Apopka City Council approved a sales and purchase agreement in February 2016. A development agreement was reached with Taurus in July 2017.In December 2017, Kilsheimer described the Apopka City Center as one of the pillars of economic development.“As many of you know, the City’s development partner Taurus Southern Investments announced in April of 2017 that it had signed a preliminary agreement to build a Hilton Garden Inn Hotel within the City Center project,” said Kilsheimer during his 2017 State of the City address. “And in June of 2017, Taurus signed a long-term lease with Dubsdread Catering for the preservation of Highland Manor on the property and linking it to the new hotel.” June 21, 2018 at 9:56 am Also while I looked at the packet, for the city center from last night’s city council meeting, I noticed that fast food businesses are not a permitted use, at the city center. I remember when this was previously discussed, and fast food businesses were allowed, but that drive thru lanes, for the fast food businesses, were not allowed, and I wonder when this part changed? I remember a Taurus representative speaking before the council and public, and she spoke about some of the possible food businesses that may come into the city center, and she mentioned a sub shop, I believe it was a Jersey Mike’s……isn’t that a fast food business? There was also talk about a Starbucks, if I am correct.

How has the city council’s approval or disapproval been cut-off from this approval process of getting the best possible version of the Hilton hotel for our city? So what is going on now, do we have people who are not elected running the show? I also heard something that I totally didn’t understand, last night, when listening to Mr. Hitt, one of the city staffers, and it was something about facial recognition and square footage in the same sentence….??? What in the world??? Did I hear that correctly, and if I did, what is he talking about, as I don’t get it??? I have heard about the facial recognition program that the City of Orlando has been using (secretly) along with Orlando Police Chief John Mina, and I didn’t like what I heard about that subject, at all! Now I think I heard “facial recognition and square footage” used in the same sentence by a city staffer, who apparently has more power than the city council members, who are elected by us citizens? Guess, if no one explains this, I will have to listen to the audio recording of the city council meeting when it is posted, to at least hear this facial recognition talk, if I wasn’t sitting there dreaming……… Free webinar for job seekers on best interview answers, hosted by Goodwill June 11 Please enter your comment!

Manawatu lock suspended after frustrated swipe knocks out instigator

first_imgTuesday Aug 21, 2018 Manawatu lock suspended after frustrated swipe knocks out instigator Manawatu Turbos lock Liam Hallam-Eames has felt the wrath of a disciplinary hearing, after not being spotted for a devastating back-hand strike less than a minute into their Mitre 10 Cup round one clash with Waikato on Saturday. The Turbos lock was held back by James Tucker shortly after kick-off and retaliated by swinging his fist directly at the Waikato second rower’s face, resulting in a knock-out blow that somehow wasn’t picked up by the officials at the time. Hallam-Eames therefore was free to play the rest of the contest, while Tucker went off for a mandatory Head Injury Assesment.While the first offence was Tucker’s holding, there is obviously no place for lashing out like that in the game, so Hallam-Eames has been suspended for a total of four matches.He was cited under law 9.12 for striking a player with his arm. New Zealand Rugby Duty Judicial Officer Chris Morris said it was a deliberate strike to the head of the opposition player who as a result was required to leave the field and failed a Head Injury Assessment (HIA).Taking into account Hallam-Eames admission of guilt and clean record, Morris reduced the suspension from six to four matches.Hallam-Eames’s suspension includes all rugby and means he will miss Manawatu’s matches against Taranaki, Otago, Canterbury and Northland and be available to return to play in Week Six of the Mitre 10 Cup.In an ironic twist, Hallam-Eames will probably be replaced by Brad Tucker, the brother of James.We’ve seen a number of similar incidents over the years, usually resulting in a ban for the retaliator, with the holding back offence clearly a difficult one to sanction. That said, Hallam-Eames must have been bashing his head against the wall before taking to the field because he had a very short fuse here, striking Tucker after what could be described as very little provocation.Manawatu went on to win a tight match 24-19.credit: rugbypass/skynzADVERTISEMENT Posted By: rugbydump Share Send Thanks Sorry there has been an error Big Hits & Dirty Play Related Articles 25 WEEKS AGO Suspensions handed down after testicle grabbing… 26 WEEKS AGO The ‘double ruffle’ splits opinion with fans… 26 WEEKS AGO WATCH: The nastiest and most brutal moments… From the WebThis Video Will Soon Be Banned.

Irish socialists to commemorate revolutionary republic

first_imgOn Aug. 26, 1921, the bakery and mills in Bruree, County Limerick, were occupied by workers and claimed as Bruree Workers Soviet Mills.“If you remove the English army tomorrow and hoist the green flag over Dublin Castle, unless you set about the organization of the Socialist Republic your efforts would be in vain. England would still rule you. She would rule you through her capitalists, through her landlords, through her financiers, through the whole array of commercial and individualist institutions she has planted in this country and watered with the tears of our mothers and the blood of our martyrs.” — James ConnollyThe following statement from the Irish Republican Socialist Committees of North America was written for an upcoming centennial commemoration in Ireland of the Revolutionary Government of the Republic.For [Irish] Republicans of all stripes the Easter Rising marks a turning point in resistance to British imperialism and a world historical event that gave birth to modern Irish Republicanism. The vision laid out by Connolly and other martyrs for self-determination was one of a nation organized by the principles of common ownership and shared prosperity. The Republic declared in the 1916 Rising was officially established 100 years ago in 1919 by An Chéad Dáil Éireann — the Revolutionary Government of the Republic. True to the democratic and egalitarian vision of those who fought and died for Ireland three years prior, the first Dáil called for social, political, economic and cultural independence for Ireland and the equal rights of all her citizens. This year marks the 100th anniversary of another landmark event in the struggle for self-determination, buried even deeper under bourgeois revisionism — the establishment of the Limerick Soviet. In response to intensified British repression, workers in the Cleeves factory went on strike. This grew to a general strike from which the soviet, or workers’ council, was formed. Workers took control of the city and organized daily affairs in the interest of their class. Although it lasted only a couple of weeks, the Limerick Soviet stands as a testament to the power of the working class. It also stands in stark contrast to counter-revolutionary governments that rule Ireland in the interest of the wealthy. Occurring during Easter week, it was an early testament to the legacy of the Rising and one that deserves to be commemorated alongside the Rising. While the Six Counties remain occupied, the equally grim reality of the 26-county Free State gives credence to Connolly’s warning that simply changing the flag, without fundamentally restructuring Irish society in service of the people, will keep the imperialist order intact and on the backs of the Irish people. As in Connolly’s time, the national bourgeois gombeen [capitalists] cynically appeal to a revisionist history that robs the revolutionary and socialist character from the foundations of Republicanism. As their class has done for generations, they invoke a sterilized nationalism that serves the continued oppression of Irish workers and the plundering of their land.On both sides of the border, the people are ground deeper and deeper into poverty by policies of austerity. And on both sides of the border, working people are driven from their homes for the sake of profit. The 32-county socialist republic declared in 1916 and established in 1919 is long overdue to be realized by Ireland’s sons and daughters. To do so requires fighting the revisionism of both British imperialism and Irish capitalism. It is up to the current generation to push forward toward national liberation and socialism. Forward in the name of Connolly and Costello. Up the workers’ republic!FacebookTwitterWhatsAppEmailPrintMoreShare thisFacebookTwitterWhatsAppEmailPrintMoreShare thislast_img read more

‘No plans’ for further vote row inquiry in Northwest 2009 European Elections

first_imgNews ‘No plans’ for further vote row inquiry in Northwest 2009 European Elections The Department of the Environment has said there are “no plans” for any further inquiry into the alleged misappropriation of 3,000 votes in the 2009 European elections in the Ireland North West constituency.The department was commenting on last week’s confirmation that the Garda Síochána Ombudsman Commission has closed its file on the investigations.However, the candidate who made the initial complaint has said that the public is “no nearer to the truth” on the issue.Independent North West candidate Fiachra Ó Luain said there is still no satisfactory explanation as to how such a large number of votes for him were initially bundled with votes for Libertas candidate Declan Ganley.The discovery was made in the Castlebar count centre for the European Parliament’s Ireland North West constituency in June 2009 when Libertas candidate and businessman Declan Ganley asked for a recheck.As a result, Mr Ganley’s official number of first preferences was reduced by 3,000 from 70,638.Mr Ó Luain, who had been eliminated from the first count, found his first preference totals rising from 3,510 to 6,510.A Garda investigation was conducted, following Mr Ó Luain’s complaint on the issue, and an unsupervised investigation was conducted on behalf of the Garda Ombudsman.On appeal by Mr Ó’Luain, the Garda Ombudsman asked the Garda Commissioner to formally review the matter. It has now concluded its investigation and says it is “satisfied that there has been no breach of discipline on the part of the Garda member concerned”.Mr Ó Luain said he never asked for an investigation into breach of discipline, but wished to determine how 3,000 votes could go missing. He said that to his knowledge no witnesses were ever interviewed at any stage of the inquiries.He had called for both Minister for Justice Alan Shatter and Minister for the Environment Phil Hogan to pursue the case, but Mr Shatter has said he cannot intervene, and a spokesman for his department told The Irish Times that “cases of alleged electoral fraud are a matter for the Garda”.Mr O’Luain said he did not wish to let the matter rest.
