Former Swansea City chairman sues divorce lawyers claiming their advice resulted in

A former football club chairman is suing his divorce lawyers claiming they failed to warn him that promotion to the Premier League would result in an extra £2.25 million pay off to his ex-wife.Huw Jenkins OBE, 56, the former Swansea City boss, claims he was told by solicitors that his finances were “not stable enough” to reach a financial settlement with his wife Sian, 50, while the club was in the lower league.However just three months later Swansea City won promotion from the Championship in 2011 to play the likes of Manchester United, Liverpool and Arsenal.This resulted in his personal wealth massively increasing and when the divorce was finally settled in 2017, Mr Jenkins was ordered to pay his ex-wife a £2.25 million lump sum.Mr Jenkins, a former building company boss who won an OBE in 2015, claims that his solicitors should have been aware that his financial situation was likely to improve if Swansea City won promotion.He also claims he should have been advised to start divorce proceedings before a “change in his circumstances” – as his team began winning. Mr Jenkins was given the advice by John Collins & Partners LLP (trading as JCP LLP).  Bringing the claim at the High Court in London he sought £2.25 million in compensation.In the Particulars of Claim lodged in court he said the firm failed to advise him that “should Swansea City AFC gain promotion to the Premier League he should immediately consider issuing divorce proceedings to minimise the potential claim against him by Sian”.He claimed to suffer a loss of around £2.25 million “such being the difference between the amount he would have been ordered to pay Sian in 2011, and the amount paid in 2017”.However as JCP was not officially incorporated as a company until 2014 – the firm claimed it did not provide any advice before 2015.The firm also claimed that if Mr Jenkins had started divorce proceedings in 2011 it would not have resulted in a quicker or lower settlement.Mrs Justice O’Farrell DBE has now said Mr Jenkins caused no prejudice in failing to name the firm correctly and the case can proceed.A spokesperson for JCP Solicitors said: “We are obviously disappointed that a claim, which we consider has no merit, has been allowed to continue, albeit in part. “Mr Jenkins didn’t follow protocol and issued proceedings out of the blue after failing to undertake even the most basic of litigation checks.””The recent judgment requires Mr Jenkins to plead his case again for the parts which are allowed to proceed.”If and when he re-pleads in respect of those parts which are allowed to proceed, we will consider the new case and will continue to defend it vigorously.”Mr Jenkins became chairman of Swansea City in 2002 and over the following decade the club rose through the divisions to the Premier League.The former chairman stood down from his role with the club earlier this year after the club was bought by two American investors. In his legal action against the solicitors, Mr Jenkins said he also transferred assets – believed to be the family home – and made periodical payments to his ex-wife as part of the 2017 divorce settlement.

Découverte dune population de léopards des neiges en Afghanistan

first_imgDécouverte d’une population de léopards des neiges en AfghanistanPubliée en juin dans International Journal of Environmental Studies, une étude menée par les biologistes d’une ONG environnementale américaine et par leurs collaborateurs locaux révèle l’existence d’une population importante du rare léopard des neiges dans les montagnes afghanes.  Grâce à des pièges photographiques disposés à 16 endroits différents dans la région montagneuse de Wakhan (nord-est de l’Afghanistan), Anthony Simms et son équipe de l’ONG Wildlife Conservation Society (WCS), soutenue par l’Agence américaine pour le développement international (USAID), ont pu, pour la première fois, mettre en évidence la présence d’une population de léopards des neiges à cet endroit du monde.À lire aussiVoilà à quoi ressemblent les cris de petits rhinocéros”C’est une merveilleuse découverte : elle montre qu’il y a un réel espoir pour les léopards des neiges en Afghanistan. Maintenant, notre objectif est de nous assurer que ces magnifiques animaux ont un avenir sûr en tant qu’éléments clé du patrimoine naturel de ce pays”, a déclaré Peter Zahler, directeur de la WCS pour l’Asie, dans le centre de laquelle vivent encore entre 4.500 et 7.500 léopards des neiges à l’état sauvage.Menacé dans le Wakhan par le braconnage, les persécutions exercées par les bergers et le trafic illégal d’animaux sauvages, le félin doit y être protégé, souligne l’étude. La WCS a donc développé un ensemble d’initiatives de conservation : partenariats avec les communautés locales, formation de rangers, efforts d’éducation et de sensibilisation. “En développant une approche de gestion dirigée par les communautés elles-mêmes, nous pensons que les léopards des neiges seront conservés en Afghanistan sur le long terme”, conclut Anthony Simms, auteur principal de l’étude.Découvrez ces léopards des neiges rarissimes en images sur Maxisciences.

Kendrick Lamars Partners With Nike to Sell New Shoes at Concerts

first_img Will our capitalist nightmare ever end? No, of course not. And it’ll just keep getting worse. Our latest digital tragedy? Selling shoes via AR at Kendrick Lamar’s forthcoming concerts thanks to a partnership with Nike and a collaboration with the company’s SNKRS app. Essentially, at a predetermined point in the concert, attendees will have the chance to order these rare shoes. Those familiar with the SNKRS app will notice that this works a fair bit like the app’s current “Stash Spot” feature. Essentially, the app alerts users to head to a specific location for the opportunity to order shoes. A bit like a Pokemon go raid, only you get fancy sneakers instead. And also spend a hundred bucks or more. In this case, this may well be one of the only ways to get your hands on a pair of Cortex Kenny III (Lamar’s new line of Nike shoes). The Stash Spots are typically very small, but in this case, anyone in the concert venue will be able to order them, provided there’s still some available. The first use of the new feature was last night at the Forum in Los Angeles, and there are four more planned. They will be May 19 in Houston, May 29 in New York City, June 5 at Boston, and June 15 in Chicago. This won’t be the only chance to get the shoes, according to Digital Trends, but it will be one of the only surefire shots. Users can still use the regular ol’ stash spots as well as other events and promotions on the app to get them. And that’s the thing that burns me a bit. I love Kendrick, and I love great shoes. But the idea of a concert being interrupted for what is essentially another advertisement is… c’mon. Can’t we just enjoy things? AR is really cool too! And has a lot of potential, but if I’m at a concert, I’m there for the music. Like even if it was just having the app and being there would work to qualify you, that’d be one thing. But leave the music alone. Am I old? Does that make me the old man yelling at the cloud? I’m in my mid-20s… that’s like a million in internet years. Maybe my time has come.

Shutdown’s second month expands scope of uncertainty in Clark County

first_imgAs the partial government shutdown drags past its one-month anniversary, the closure’s impacts are spreading beyond furloughed and unpaid federal employees and hitting the general public.In Clark County’s private sector and network of volunteers, the ongoing shutdown is starting to leave a mark.Without institutional support from the U.S. Forest Service, restoration efforts in the Columbia Gorge have stalled. Without approval from the Alcohol and Tobacco Tax and Trade Bureau, local breweries can’t market new beer products across state lines. With food stamp programs facing limbo in March, the region’s food banks are wondering how their resources might handle some strain.And with federal employees facing their second consecutive missed paycheck on Friday — the first time that’s happened in the country’s 38-year history of budget-related shutdowns — the private sector might take a hit in the form of money not spent. When people aren’t sure when their next paycheck will arrive, they’re not taking their families out to dinner.“People are feeling pain, and some businesses are going to lose some revenue that they’re probably never going to get back,” said regional economist Scott Bailey.The ripple effectLong-term projects of “nonessential” federal employees are starting to suffer.The Pacific Crest Trail Association, which organizes volunteer restoration efforts of public lands, had to cancel its scheduled excursion into the Columbia Gorge to help repair the devastation from 2017’s Eagle Creek Fire.last_img read more

Doctor Who Stars Deep Space Nine Audition Tape Uncovered

first_imgWe can do you one better, @trekdocs. Here’s a sneak peek at some original audition tapes from 1992. #DS9 #AuditionTapes #WhatWeLeftBehind pic.twitter.com/zT56qpkxtB— The DS9 Documentary (@DS9Doc) September 7, 2017Aww. They’re like puppies you just want to cuddle and watch Downton Abbey with.While neither landed the part, each went on to carve their own pop culture path: Four years later, Head debuted as sexy school librarian-cum-mentor Giles in Buffy the Vampire Slayer, and Capaldi eventually broke America with The Thick of It and The Musketeers, before snagging the keys to the TARDIS.It’s hard to imagine a pasty white dude at the helm of the USS Defiant. Hopefuls like Capaldi, Head, and Preacher‘s Pip Torrens never really stood a chance, though. Avery Brooks made Star Trek history when he became the first African-American commanding officer in charge of Deep Space Nine.The Starfleet officer, however, could have looked very different.Two Trekkie Twitter accounts last week confirmed that, among the 100 other actors vying for the lead role were Rupert Giles Anthony Stewart Head and the Twelfth Doctor Peter Capaldi.

It was always going to be a brown captain.”Brooks-as-Sisko not only brought a visually diverse element to the Star Trek universe, but allowed for more complex themes; the actor also directed nine episodes of the series, including “Far Beyond the Stars,” which focuses on racial injustice.A lanky Glaswegian with powerful eyebrows and a crooked smile just wouldn’t have had the same impact.Fans may yet see Capaldi and Head (who guest starred on Doctor Who, alongside Tenth Doctor David Tennant) have a go as Sisko: The team behind DS9 documentary What We Left Behind hope to include their audition tapes in the upcoming film.“Our team has had a great time watching these alternative takes from other great performers and hope we’ll be able to share at least a selection with the DS9 fanbase,” co-producer Kai de Mello-Folsom told TrekMovie.Widely considered the best Star Trek spin-off (an easy task among the company of loathed series Voyager and The Next Generation), Deep Space Nine‘s casting is as relevant today as it was 25 years ago.Doctor Who made headlines this summer when Jodie Whittaker was revealed as the first female Doctor—a long-awaited change to the show’s five-decade history of male leads. We have a ways to go, though, if we’re still celebrating the fact that a woman can indeed fly the TARDIS.Let us know what you like about Geek by taking our survey.last_img read more

Cannabis is medicine experts at first regional conference on medicinal marijuana agree

first_img Facebook Comments For many Costa Ricans, marijuana legalization conjures images of dreadlocked hippies lying in hammocks getting baked. This perception is precisely whatCannaCosta 2015, Central America’s first annual conference about the medicinal and industrial uses of cannabis and hemp, tried to change.With a panel of national and international doctors, scientists, businesspeople and politicians, CannaCosta, held Saturday and Sunday at the National Culture Center (CENAC) in downtown San José, may have surprised those who expected a gathering of stoners almost as much as the information delivered there by speakers and supporters of marijuana’s scientific uses.“Our objective is to educate each other so that the discussion that the country is having right now will be raised to a technical and scientific level rather than a speculative one,” said Diego Arias, spokesperson for Zegreenlab S.A., a Costa Rican enterprise dedicated to environmental ventures and the conference organizer.Costa Rica is currently engaged in a heated debate regarding a bill presented by ruling party legislator Marvin Atencio in August last year that proposes turning Costa Rica into the first Central American country to legalize marijuana for medical purposes.While the Healthy Ministry stated last week that medical cannabis can be acceptable as a treatment of last resort, on the eve of the conference, Casa Presidencial released a statement indicating that the Presidency does not support marijuana consumption.However, legislator Atencio of the Citizen Action Party (PAC), one of the speakers at CannaCosta, told The Tico Times that the statement was not well drafted and led some members of the media to misinterpret the Presidency’s message. Legislator Marvin Atencio at the first CannaCosta conference yesterday in San José. Photo by Marco Tent“The government shares my line of thinking, the use of cannabis should be medicinal and industrial, not recreational, with an emphasis on not smoking,” said Atencio, who maintains that he is 100 percent positive that his bill will be approved.Atencio, who is both a lawyer and a doctor, highlighted that smoking marihuana can have negative effects on health and that there are two main reasons why the controversial Bill 19.256 should pass. One of them is for public health reasons, to alleviate the suffering of patients with cancer, arthritis, epilepsy and other degenerative diseases through medicinal marihuana consumption. The other is for the economic impact of delving into an industry that could generate up to 10,000 new jobs, directly and indirectly.Cannabis healing “None of the components of cannabis will make you die, but there are people telling the media that this is the case. They are idiots,” U.S. neurologist Denis J. Petro said during his presentation at CannaCosta on Saturday.Petro has been studying the medicinal uses of cannabinoids, the chemical compounds of marijuana, for more than thirty years. He has concluded that these compounds, of which there are more than 100 varieties including tetrahydrocannabinol (THC) and marinol, improve the symptoms of patients who suffer from multiple sclerosis, cancer and chemotherapy treatment, epilepsy and anorexia, among other diseases.Israeli filmmaker Zach Klein, who made the 2009 documentary Prescribed Grass  that follows the lives of several patients whose symptoms improved through the use of medical marijuana thanks to a license granted by the Israeli government, pointed out that research on epilepsy conducted 34 years ago in Sao Paulo, Brazil, showed that the daily intake of the compound cannabidiol (CBD) reduces epileptic seizures.“The research was published, but nothing happened,” said Klein, who affirms that CBD is an efficient treatment for other diseases and symptoms including Alzheimer’s, diabetes, inflammation, and nausea.Klein said cannabinoids are also beneficial for children, citing the example of an eleven-year-old boy whose autism symptoms improved after four weeks of taking a daily dose of THC oil.Over the last 15 years, Dr. Cristina Sánchez, Biochemistry and Molecular Biology Professor at Madrid’s Complutense University, has conducted research showing that not only are cannabinoids an effective treatment for cancer symptoms, but they are also anti-tumor agents. Her research reveals that certain cannabinoids inhibit the growth of tumoral cells, leading to the destruction, inhibition, or reduction of tumors.“We’d like to convince the medical community that they have to take advantage of cannabinoids,” she said.Industrial CannabisCannaCosta featured the industrial uses of cannabis such as green building with hemp, a fiber of the cannabis plant.Derek Kesek, founder of Hempearth, a North American company that is currently building the world’s first aircraft made out of hemp and powered by hemp biofuel, spoke at CannaCosta on Sunday about the four-seater, two engine plane that will be built of approximately 75 percent hemp.According to a Hempearth information booklet, “because hemp is a sustainable crop that needs no pesticides or herbicides to grow, the plane will have a carbon footprint significantly smaller than that of a standard plane.”Architect Monika Brümmer, another speaker at the conference, invented an eco-friendly building block made out of hemp called Cannabric, which she has been manufacturing in Spain since 1999.center_img Related posts:Marijuana activists push legalization of medical cannabis in Costa Rica US states allowing medical marijuana report fewer prescription-drug overdose deaths Social Security System president denies Caja approved medicinal marijuana in Costa Rica Puerto Rico authorizes medical marijuanalast_img read more

Pending Home Sales Rebound in California

The increase compares to a 0.3 percent uptick in the National Association of Realtors’ national index, which measured 105 in the group’s latest reading.CAR’s data from the past six years show contract signings average a monthly change of -3 percent from August to September, usually signaling the start of a slower season for housing.Compared to a year ago, pending sales last month were down 0.5 percent, the smallest annual decline since January 2013.Meanwhile, equity sales—transactions involving non-distressed properties—made up 90.9 percent of all sales in September, just down from the 91 percent share recorded in August. Equity sales in the state have accounted for more than 80 percent of total sales since July 2013 and for at least 90 percent of total sales since June.The combined share all of distressed property sales was 9.1 percent, down nearly 40 percent from last year, CAR reported. Out of the 41 reporting counties, 14 showed a monthly decrease in distressed sales share, with an additional 19 recording increases in the single digits.last_img read more

Social media promotions will run throughout the se

first_imgSocial media promotions will run throughout the season, with both consumer and trade e-newsletters keeping the focus on the category. Media dietitians will further extend consumer reach with TV segments in major markets.For the Chilean Kiwifruit industry, the most exciting aspect of 2019’s crop is its dry matter, which has reached historically high levels this year, says the Chilean Fresh Fruit Association.Dry matter is essentially everything in the fruit, minus the water. It is an important factor in delivering quality fruit with consistent ripeness all along the supply chain, from the orchards straight through to retail.Carlos Cruzat, chairman of the Chilean Kiwifruit Committee, explains: “There is a direct link between dry matter and sweetness of fruit. With the high dry matter we’re seeing throughout the industry, we feel confident that consumers are going to have a great experience with Chilean kiwifruit, resulting in repeat purchases and kiwifruit category growth for retailers.”Beyond flavor, this season’s attractive fruit sizing is another appeal – Chilean kiwifruit are larger than they were last year, with the majority of volume falling between Size 30 and 33.A dry, hot summer and increasingly stricter harvesting parameters by Chilean Kiwifruit Committee members have yielded high-quality, more uniform fruit with strong storage potential, says the association.Chile started shipping small volumes of green kiwifruit to North America in Week 12, with weekly shipments steadily increasing and set to continue into September.Its kiwifruit is available now through October. Chile is launching its first-ever kiwifruit campaign in North America this season that will include retail and social media promotions from June through September, following substantial growth in the country’s harvesting parameters over recent years.So far the South American country has shipped nearly 11,000 metric tons (MT) of kiwifruit to the market.The Chilean Fresh Fruit Association’s (CFFA) merchandisers are currently finalizing retail promotional programs, both in-store and online, says Karen Brux, the organization’s managing director.She adds that all retail promotions will have one common objective – demonstrating how kiwifruit can contribute to a retailer’s bottom line.“Kiwifruit is an amazing fruit. From its fresh, tangy-sweet taste to its incredible nutrition and health benefits, it really has everything. Our promotions will generate increased kiwifruit sales and shine light on the potential of kiwifruit to become a bigger player in the produce department,” she says.In addition to retail programs, the CFFA says it’s also undertaking an extensive social media program, sharing nutrition info, usage ideas, new recipes, recipe videos and season updates with their 350,000 Facebook fans.
