Original Story
  • “Hotel development proposal could displace Buffalo, NY business owners” — Wikinews, February 17, 2006

Thursday, March 2, 2006

Buffalo, New York — In an unanimous vote, the City of Buffalo‘s Planning Board voted to table the Elmwood Village hotel Proposal, postponing voting on legislation for up to 30 days.

The Board said its decision was due to the lack of public involvement, saying that there have not been enough meetings.

The Elmwood Village Hotel is a proposed project by Savarino Construction Services Corporation and was designed by Karl Frizlen of The Frizlen Group. The hotel would be placed on Elmwood and Forest Avenues in Buffalo, New York. In order for the hotel to be built, at least five buildings, that include both businesses and residents, must be demolished.

The Forever Elmwood Corp. is a Buffalo-based non-profit organization founded in 1994. Justin Azzarella, the Executive Director for the organization voiced support for the proposal, stating: “I am here today to lend Forever Elmwood’s support the hotel project. Particularly, Forever Elmwood is encouraged by the fact that this building follows the more stringent Elmwood Village Design Guidelines. We have been speaking with Savarino Construction, and they have promised us [Forever Elmwood] that they will engage the community further, including the surrounding Block Clubs and businesses. For that reason, while Forever Elmwood is in support of this project and the type of project that it is, we are asking also that the project be tabled so that the community can be further engaged. Specifically the surrounding Block clubs which include the Granger, Claremont, Asland and The Lincoln Parkway Block Clubs.”

“Because of the excellent work that Karl does and the game plan that they have, I think its an ideal use of this particular location. I think that this particular type of development needs to be encouraged and promoted as opposed to roadblocked,” said a man who owns five properties near the proposal site.

However, Evelyn Bencinich, a resident of Granger Place and whose house would be located directly behind the hotel said, “My property value will be depreciated or non-existent because no one is going to want to live behind a multi-story hotel. We are facing up to a year of noisy and dangerous demolition and construction. Children, pets and even drunk rebellers could wander on site and get hurt. Traffic tie-ups caused by large machinery and garbage bins is inevitable. Where will pedestrians walk? We could experience increased unsanitary flooding in our yards and basements due to the digging and cementing for the underground parking garage. Rats will be displaced into the immediate neighborhoods and be in great abundance. Once we get past the year of nightmare construction, what if you build it and they don’t come? We could ultimately have a seven million dollar rooming house on our corner.”

Patty Morris, co-owner of Don Apparel with Nancy Pollina at 1119 Elmwood also asked that the project be tabled saying, “this has only been public knowledge for less than two weeks and the public never saw the redesign. How can you vote on anything that no one has seen yet? The Board cut off Morris saying, “so specifically you don’t have any problem with it [the design] you just…” Morris then said, “Oh I am totally against this project, but thats besides the point isn’t it.”

The planning board is also concerned that the current design may still be too big.

At one point Board member Susan Curran Hoyt said, “we know you’ve cut down your number of rooms on this project, but we still see it doesn’t seem to fit the description of a ‘botique’ hotel,” and asked Eva Hassett, Vice President of Savarino Construction, “we wonder if you could reduce the rooms further.”

“One thing I didn’t talk about was the price levels of these rooms and that will be important to know. The room rate will be somewhere between US$120 and $160 a night, which is about the same price of the Hampton Inn down town and the smaller you make the hotel, the more expensive the rooms will get. We believe that we’ve made a good compromise in terms of the size of the hotel and perhaps botique means different things to different people,” said Hassett.

The board was also concerned that there is not enough parking asking, “are there alternative plans for valet parking off-site, in the event that you have a full hotel or a large event going on?”

“We are exploring several possibilities with respect to additional parking for valet and parking near-by,” replied Hassett. “We are also exploring the possibility of using the rear of 1105 Elmwood for additional parking, which would give us an additional ten or eleven spaces.”

The new design has a total of 55 parking spaces for 72 rooms, with 39 of them underground and the rest on ground level.

Hassett also said that a “parking study” will be done on the area.

Concerns that the second floor of the hotel will be too close to the property of 605 Forest were also brought up. The board asked how far the hotel would be from the property and Karl Frizlen replied saying it would “be approximately five feet from the property line,” but he also admitted that, “I do not know exactly how close the house next door” will be from the hotel, but did say “I think the house is about four or five feet away from the property line and we [the hotel] sit right on the property line.”

The board is concerned the setback from the property is not enough saying the space between the building and the hotel is “pretty narrow.”

The City’s Common Council also agreed to table the proposal also citing the need for more public engagement and the need for more organizations to respond including the Buffalo Preservation Board and the Office of Historic Preservation.

During that meeting, Hassett also said the proposal to try and get a variance to obtain the properties of 605 and 607 Forest were “now off the agenda.”

The Common Council is expected to meet and hold a public hearing about the project and the rezoning of the properties to be demolished (1119-1121 Elmwood) on Tuesday March 7, 2006 at 2:00 p.m. in Council Chambers at City Hall. At the moment the properties are not zoned for a hotel.

How the Army Corps of Engineers closed one New Orleans breach

Friday, September 9, 2005

New Orleans, Louisiana — After Category 4 storm Hurricane Katrina slammed into New Orleans, on the night before August 29, 2005, several flood control constructions failed. Much of the city flooded through the openings. One of these was the flood wall forming one side of the 17th Street Canal, near Lake Pontchartrain. The U.S. Army Corps of Engineers (USACE) is the primary agency for engineering support during such emergencies. A USACE team was assessing the situation in New Orleans on the 29th, water flow was stopped September 2nd, and the breach was closed on September 5th.

Brazilian President Lula met Chavez, military and economic cooperation

Thursday, February 17, 2005

CARACAS, Venezuela – The Brazilian President Luiz Inácio Lula da Silva met the Venezuelan President Hugo Chavez on February 14, 2005 in Caracas, Venezuela. Brazil and Venezuela signed agreements of cooperation on many areas. According to the Brazilian government this was a strategical encounteur. This meeting is the first of three meetings that President Lula will have with South American Presidents in three days. The scheduled meetings are with the presidents of: Venezuela (February, 14), Guiana (February, 15) and Suriname (February, 16).

President Lula was accompanied by the following comitiva: the Minister of Development, Industry, and External Trade Luiz Fernando Furlan, the Minister of Finance Antônio Palocci, the Minister of Foreign Relations Celso Amorim, the Minister of Health Humberto Costa, the Minister of Mines and Energy Dilma Roussef, the Minister of Tourism Walfrido Mares Guia, the President of Petrobras José Eduardo Dutra, the President of National Economic and Social Development Bank (BNDES) Guido Mantega, the President of Eletrobrás Silas Rondeau Cavalcante Silva and the Special Secretary for Aquaculture and Fisheries José Fritsch. In addition a delegation of executives representing enterprises from Brazil accompanied the President.

The Brazilian Ministry of External Relations told the trip aims the construction of a strategical alliance and commercial integration between both countries. The Brazilian Presidential Advisor Marco Aurélio Garcia said:”With this gesture, Brazil will consolidate one of its major political goals, which is the constitution of a South American community of nations”. He added: “These agreements with Venezuela are strategical. We want this agreement as a model for other agreements in the region.”

According to President Lula the integration of the Latin America is the priority number one of his government. Days before the arrival in Venezuela and commenting about the trip Lula said: “We’re going to do the same thing in Colombia and in other countries in which integration is no longer a campaign speech but part of the way we deal with real things, day to day”.

The integration of the Latin America is the politics repeatedly proposed by Lula during the meetings of the Foro de São Paulo. According to him and the others members of the Foro there must be a integration among all the left parties and governments of Latin America. The union aims to be an alternative and opposing force to the politics and influence of the richest countries, mainly the United States. Among the organizations which are usually participants of the Foro de São Paulo are: Communist Party of Cuba, Colombian Communist Party, Communist Party of Bolivia, Communist Party of Brazil, Workers’ Party, Paraguayan Communist Party, Peruvian Communist Party, Socialist Party of Peru, National Liberation Army, Revolutionary Armed Forces of Colombia, Farabundo Martí National Liberation Front, Guatemalan National Revolutionary Unity, Tupamaros.

On December 4, 2001 during the 10th edition of the Foro de São Paulo in Havana Lula said:”A shoal of small fish may mean the finishing of the hungry in our countries, in out continent. We should not think as the History ended on our journey by the Earth. Even it happens just once, or with one gesture, let’s effectively contribute to the improve the life of millions of human beings who live socially excluded by this neoliberal model.”[1]

In Venezuela, once again, he brought out the integration wish: “This is the biggest dream I am carrying, that we can negotiate collectively, not like one country, but like a set of countries so we can do that our people may have the chance to conquer the full citizenship.”

Get Your Ex Boyfriend Back When He Hasn’t Called}

Submitted by: Anthony Malibu

Has your ex boyfriend been unresponsive? Learn what to do when your ex is being cold and distant, and how you can draw him emotionally closer on the path to winning him back.

Getting dumped… it’s never easy. Being harshly rejected by someone you love can take a big emotional toll on you, especially if the end of the relationship came as a complete and total surprise.

Yet even in the darkest of scenarios, there’s still some light at the end of the tunnel. Ready for some good news? Even after breaking up with you, our ex boyfriend is still emotionally attached to you. While you dated, your ex developed some very strong feelings for you. It’s foolish to think these feelings just magically went away the moment he dropped the bomb.

No, the truth of the matter is that your breakup doesn’t have to be permanent. Until your boyfriend totally lets go, there will

always

be a way to work yourself back into his heart. Once you realize and accept this, there’s only the matter of finding it.

The big problem however, is this: initially it will be difficult to make

any

sort of move in your ex boyfriend’s direction. Is he pushing you away right now? Acting cold and distant toward you? Has your ex ignored your phone calls, and not returned your text-messages? If so, you’re in a very critical stage of your breakup. What you do right now will determine how easy (or hard) it will be to get back your ex boyfriend. Your overall success depends on the severity of the mistakes you make, or hopefully

don’t

make.

YouTube Preview Image

When your ex boyfriend doesn’t call, it’s because he’s implementing a very standard defense mechanism. Simply put, guys don’t want to be around girls they’ve just broken up with. It’s weird, it’s awkward, and it’s a very strange scenario. Unless your boyfriend is ready to take you back – and right now he’s not – your ex won’t be looking for any form of contact with you, electronic or otherwise.

Don’t Take Your Ex Boyfriend’s Lack of Contact as a Sign of Rejection

The faster you feel your ex slipping away from you, the more you’ll want to act toward getting him back. This is the fatal flaw in your plan, and it’s a very big catch-22 scenario. Why? Because the more you take action right now, the faster you’ll push him away. Your reaction to feeling as if your exboyfriend is emotionally slipping away soon becomes the very thing that

makes you lose him

.

Try to understand that your boyfriend ignoring you means absolutely nothing right now. In fact, the less contact you have with him the better. To get back your boyfriend, you’ll first need to make your ex miss you. This requires ignoring him in return, rather than chasing after him.

Once you’ve shown your ex that you’re no longer trying to fix the breakup? His first reaction will be a sigh of relief. He’ll be happy he no longer has to fear bumping into you, or hearing from you during this awkward phase of the breakup. His second reaction? Curiosity. Suddenly, from out of nowhere, your ex will find himself wondering

why

you’re not chasing him anymore.

Creating an Atmosphere Where Your Ex Boyfriend Will Miss You

Alright, here’s where things get good. As contact between you and your ex boyfriend disappears entirely, he’s suddenly struck with the idea of losing you forever. This concept has never occurred to him before, because all along he’s known that you still love him. The entire time you kept chasing or calling your ex, it reaffirmed the fact that he still had you wrapped around his little finger.

But now? Practically overnight, you’ve become a mystery. You’ve removed yourself from the realm of his daily life, leaving him to wonder where you are.

“Hmmmm… she stopped calling. Is she with someone else? Did she meet some other guy?”

These thoughts will reverberate through your ex’s head, bouncing around and around in there until he begins feeling the overwhelming need to find out what you’re up to. Keep your silence total and complete, and this shouldn’t take long.

At this point, your ex boyfriend misses you. He hasn’t seen or heard from you in a while, and he’ll start thinking fondly back to your past relationship. At the same time, your ex will start feeling a sense of increased urgency. Not knowing whether or not he can get you back will take away his safety net, and this can be a very scary thing for a guy who just dumped you.

Learning how to get your boyfriend back when he doesn’t call isn’t all that hard. It requires a clear head and some emotional patience. Knowing what to do next is also an important part of the reconciliation process, so don’t go into reversing your breakup without a step by step blueprint of what to do.

Want to get your ex boyfriend to call you? Learn which methods and techniques are best! Couples get back together by being

proactive

about their breakups… not by sitting idly by and hoping that things somehow magically right themselves.

New Zealand dollar hits new high versus the United States dollar

Tuesday, July 17, 2007

File:New Zealand money.jpg

The New Zealand dollar (NZD) value rose and, for a short amount of time, was worth US$0.7932, the highest level in New Zealand since the dollar was floated in 1985 — 22 years ago.

The value then dropped a little and as of 11.40 a.m. was trading at US$0.7925. This was due to the Reserve Bank of New Zealand announcing that it will intervene next week at their Official Cash Rate review if the dollar continued to rise.

Economists are predicting that the NZD will now go above US$0.80.

The cause of this rise was mainly due to the release of the June quarter retail sales data. The consumer price index data showed that sales increased by 1.2%, instead of the predicted 0.4%. The bigger than expected sales data were mainly due to supermarket, car and petrol purchases. In May, the core sales figures showed a 0.8% rise, these figures excluded car and fuel sales.

Economist correspondents for Radio New Zealand have also said that a weak US dollar is also to blame for the rising New Zealand dollar. Danika Hampton, currency analyst for the Bank of New Zealand, says the NZD is looking expensive and doubts if it will maintain its current high figure.

Michael Cullen, the finance minister of New Zealand, has said that investors will be hurt when the New Zealand dollar does fall. Dr Cullen personally believes that the NZD is currently overvalued.

The Wellington Chamber of Commerce has called for the New Zealand Government to slow down it’s spending. Charles Finny, from the Chamber of Commerce, says this is one of the core factors, more than the oil and housing markets, despite speculation. Worldwide oil prices are at a current 11-month high.

The retails sales figures also resulted in Government bonds being weakened. The two-year and ten-year Government bonds are at 7.61% and 6.82% respectively.

The Official Cash Rate is currently at 8%, due to other interventions by the Reserve Bank.

The NZD is also trading well against the Australian dollar and Japanese yen.

Ozzy Osbourne’s personal possessions fetch $800,000 for charity

Sunday, December 2, 2007

American heavy metal performer Ozzy Osbourne, who became famous as the lead vocalist for Black Sabbath and later as a solo act, has raised more than US$800,000 for The Sharon Osbourne Colon Cancer Program, founded by his spouse Sharon Osbourne at the Cedars Sinai Hospital, by auctioning off personal items.

A number of the items that he auctioned off over the two day period have been seen on his reality TV show The Osbournes, which featured home life with Sharon, Ozzy and their two children. Amongst some of the higher-priced items were a carved walnut Victorian-style custom built pool table which raised $11,250, a painting from Edourad Drouot which fetched $10,500, a pair of Ozzy’s famous round glasses which raised $5,250 and a dog bed given to Sharon by Elton John which sold for $2,375.

Some more famous items were also amongst the 500 lots offered. Ozzy’s black satin coat, complete with bat-wing cape, raised $3,300 and a hand-painted floral cup used regularly on The Osbournes made $1,625. A bronze plaque of a demon’s head that was regularly seen in its position adorning the front door of their house had been expected to go for $800 to $1,200instead raised $8,750. A wire model of the Eiffel Tower from on the kitchen table sold for $10,000, while skull-covered trainers Ozzy had worn reached $2,625. Bidders came from as far away as Germany to buy what they could from his mansion in Beverly Hills, California.

However, three cars included in the auction failed to attract bidders and did not sell. They were a 2006 Bentley Continental Flying Spur, estimated at $160,000 to $180,000, a 2005 Cadillac CTS-V sedan estimated at $30,000 to $40,000 and a 1950 Oldsmobile Futuramic 88 Club Coupe previously owned by author Danielle Steel estimated at $40,000 to $50,000. Sharon had earlier said of the cars “We’re not great car people. They really don’t do a lot for us.

Darren Julien, president of Julien’s Auctions, which organised the two-day sale, said “It did very well. It raised some good money for a very worthy cause.”

“For a celebrity garage sale, it was pretty spectacular.,” he went on. He also commented on the fact that there was fierce competition for the many artworks included. “We had Ozzy fans bidding against these sophisticated fine art buyers, which you don’t see every day. For the most part the metalheads were outbidding the art crowd.”

The forex market is where trading that happens between the foreign exchanges

Here the rising or falling value of currency adds to the profits or losses of forex traders. This kind of trading requires a lot of skill and experience to be successful.

The forex market is by some distance the largest financial market in the world. Unlike the other financial markets the FX market does not have a single location and is managed via technology worldwide. While stocks and shares have starting and closing times Forex trading is available anytime. It is genuinely a 24 hour market and available in 60 currencies across he globe.

To achieve success trading the Forex you must get acquainted with it in detail. Trading the Forex without getting a FX education is foolhardy. Therefore it is imperative you are well versed in FX basics and essentials prior to trading.

There are many free sources providing forex training. Many websites have tutorials and many brokers offer free seminars. In forex forums you can learn a lot too. They give you the chance to access a wealth of relevant information and more importantly, ask questions.

Leverage is one of the most important aspects of successful Forex Trading. A trader can have a leverage of around 30 to 40 times, and also 100% in certain cases. As opposed to stocks. In FXtrading the leverage factor is what can make you large profits in quick time.

Planning is very important. You must have a well defined strategy to succeed. Discover a strategy that works for you and apply it. Add patience and persistence to your approach. You cannot expect to be successful straight away. Patience will pay dividends as will your adherence to your FX strategy.

It sounds obvious but make a detailed log of your trades. Some people don’t! Maintaining logs will improve your ability to recognize a strong trading set up and a weak one too. Making notes will help your future trades.

There are a number of factors that affect currency prices such as political and economic conditions, interest rates and inflation. These factors can create volatility in the prices of currencies. However, the Forex is so huge it is not possible for one entity to rule the market for any period of time.

Currency traders take economic fundamentals and technical factors to arrive at decisions regarding trading. Fundamentalists predict the price movements through an interpretation of economic information including government issued indicators, news, reports and even rumours.

Technical traders use trend lines, charts, support and resistence levels, and a number of patterns and mathematical analysis for trading opportunities.

Before plunging into the Forex Market it is wise to consider your investment objectives as well as your appetite for risk and level of experience. Do not use money you cannot afford to lose. Risk manage by using stop losses and limit orders. This is essential.

Forex trading is challenging as well as potentially profitable so make sure you are well prepared. Become knowledgeable. Decide on a FX strategy and do lots of research. Then your forex trading will be successful.

UK Jobcentre call centre staff on 48-hour strike

Saturday, January 22, 2011

As-announced Wednesday evening, 3,500 staff from UK Jobcentre plus call centres engaged in a 48-hour walkout. Centres in Newport and Glasgow were picketed by members Thursday and Friday mornings as part of a coordinated strike at seven of the thirty centres handling benefits and unemployment-related queries for the UK public.

Wikinews spoke to Katrine Williams, one of the representatives of the Public and Commercial Services Union (PCS), and a member of the Civil Service since 1991, to establish the grievances leading to the public-sector industrial action.

Balloted in December, over 70% of PCS members voted in favour of strike action; according to Williams, this forced minor concessions from call centre management, but left staff being constantly monitored. With a target of five minutes or less to handle any query related to Job-Seekers’ Allowance, staff have been threatened with disciplinary action should they take too long for calls. Williams expressed concern that, with many claimants, it took longer than this to simply establish what the issue was for a member of the public calling in.

The number provided for the public to call in relation to benefits is an 0845 number, usually charged at a local call rate when dialled from a landline within the UK; for many claimants, they may only have a mobile phone and be subject to higher charges, or even in a position where a benefit payment has been delayed, and this is their sole contact with the Department of Work and Pensions (DWP) when they may be in financial difficulty.

Both Williams and David Coventry, who spoke to the UK Press Association, feel let down that their members’ expertise is being dismissed; that what is the only option for the unemployed, and a public service, is being managed as-if a commercial enterprise. This, according to Williams, is the prevalent attitude for approximately ten years; managers previously in the private-sector constantly describe the service as a “business”, and members of the public requiring assistance as “customers”.

In describing negotiations with management to avert industrial action, Williams stated: “contact centre managers are [the] worst [within the DWP]”, and they, “renege on verbal agreements”.

The centres hit by strike action are: Bristol, Glasgow, Makerfield near Wigan, Manchester, Newport, Norwich, and Sheffield. Williams stated that a failure on the government’s part to resolve the dispute could lead to further action involving the full 30 call centres operated by the DWP. In combination with threats of action by passport office staff in the PCS union, the UK’s current coalition government may be faced with significant disruption to essential public services at a time when unemployment figures are climbing.

When Wikinews contacted the DWP press office, only a prepared statement was available. Forwarded to Wikinews by Elise Simpson, the department expressed disappointment at industrial action being taken by staff, stating: “only 21% across the centres” were taking action. Appeals for further clarification, and answers to other queries were not returned. Considering the union selectively took action at seven of thirty centres, it would appear the walk-out at those was virtually all staff. Calls to the Jobseekers’ 0845 number gave no indication calls may take longer to be connected to someone able to assist with a query or claim.

In late December, Brendan Barber of the Trades Union Congress warned that 2011 may be a year where the UK faces widespread public-sector industrial action. £81 billion (US$128 billion) is set to be cut from the UK’s expenditure, with the possible loss of over a quarter million public-sector jobs.
