It was also suggested by the prosecution that his sister, Dana Rosemary Scallon, helped him cover up the alleged offences.Yesterday’s Sunday Times reported that if the Crown Prosecition Service decides to prosecute, it will be the first time witnesses in a historical sex abuse case have faced trial for making false accusations.Solicitor Kevin Winters told the paper that Mr Brown and his sister Dana suffered a life-changing and terrible ordeal due to untrue accusations.

Gamestop short-seller revealed as buyer of $44M Miami Beach property: sources

first_imgShare via Shortlink Email Address* Gabe Plotkin with 6360 and 6342 North Bay Road (Google Maps)UPDATED, 6:45 p.m. Jan. 26: Gabe Plotkin, the founder of investment management firm Melvin Capital Management and a major short-seller of GameStop, is the buyer of two adjacent properties in Miami Beach, The Real Deal has learned.Plotkin paid $44 million for the waterfront homes at 6360 and 6342 North Bay Road, according to sources. Jean Simonian, who owns the watch store Westime, sold the mansion and adjacent house. The deal closed in late November and was recorded last week.Plotkin founded New York-based Melvin Capital in 2014 with $925 million in seed money, according to a source. The fund now manages $13 billion. Its holdings include more than 405,000 shares of Amazon (worth nearly $1.3 billion on Monday), and about 20 million shares in Bath & Body Works owner L Brands (worth $600 million), according to Yahoo Finance. L Brands also owns a stake in Victoria’s Secret.A spokesperson for Plotkin declined to comment. Melvin is known for taking significant short positions against several stocks, including GameStop, which has seen its shares rally nearly 700 percent this year- resulting in huge losses for Melvin. On Monday, the Wall Street Journal reported that Steve Cohen’s Point72 Asset Management and Ken Griffin’s Citadel are investing $2.75 billion into Melvin, which has lost nearly 30 percent this year.The 12,651-square-foot mansion at 6360 North Bay Road sold for $32 million.

Russia: Yury Dolgoruky to Perform Bulava Salvo Launch in October

first_img View post tag: Russia View post tag: Perform Russia: Yury Dolgoruky to Perform Bulava Salvo Launch in October September 1, 2011 View post tag: Naval Training & Education Seventeenth test of submarine-launched ballistic missile (SLBM) R-30 Bulava is scheduled in the first half of Oct 2011, reports Interfax referring to a source in Russian Navy Main HQ.Expectedly, it would be a salvo launch. Project 955 Borei nuclear-powered ballistic missile submarine (SSBN) Yury Dolgoruky will launch two missiles at a short interval. If the Bulava salvo launch happens to be successful, the missile will be subject to commissioning.Previous 16th test launch of SLBM Bulava (second in 2011) was carried out on Aug 27, 2011. The missile was tested for maximal flight range which turned out to be 9,300 km. The test was found successful. Generally, 9 out of 16 launches were effective. As was earlier reported, 4-5 tests would be carried out in the current year; upon their results, Bulava can be commissioned into Russian Navy. SSBN Yury Dolgoruky will be put into service along with the missile.In prospect, SLBM Bulava will become the core element of Russia’s naval nuclear shield and be basic weapon of Project 955/955A/955U Borei submarines. The missile is capable to hit targets at the range up to 8,000 km and carries 6-10 nuclear warheads with yield of 150 kt each.[mappress]Source: rusnavy, September 1, 2011; View post tag: launch Back to overview,Home naval-today Russia: Yury Dolgoruky to Perform Bulava Salvo Launch in October View post tag: Navy View post tag: Bulava View post tag: October View post tag: News by topic View post tag: Salvo View post tag: Yury View post tag: Dolgoruky Share this articlelast_img read more

SON OF FLAKE

first_imgSON OF FLAKEby Michael Reagan, January 3, 2019What’s with Mitt Romney, the newly minted Republican senator from the great red state of Utah?Mitt hadn’t even been sworn in yet and he put his name on a New Year’s Day op-ed column in the Washington Post bearing the headline “Mitt Romney: The president shapes the public character of the nation. Trump’s character falls short.”Then Mitt showed up on CNN to repeat his complaint that after two years the president of his party has “not risen to the mantle of the office.”Sorry he feels that way, but if moderate Mitt really cared about the GOP he would have put a leash on that super ego of his.Lots of us Republicans have criticized the president’s words and actions – justifiably.But Mitt’s criticism – delivered publicly in two of the liberal media’s holiest places – was an ill-timed cheap shot aimed at reminding everyone in the Washington elite that he may be a loser, but compared to the president he’s still a morally superior being.Mitt knew his scathing criticism would immediately be spread far and wide by the Trump Hate Media, which it was.He also knew it would instantly earn the president’s ire, which Trump expressed in a series of counter-tweets.Even Mitt’s niece, Ronna McDaniel, the chairwoman of the Republican National Committee, hit her uncle upside the head for his subversive selfishness.“POTUS is attacked and obstructed by the MSM media and Democrats 24/7. For an incoming Republican freshman senator to attack @realdonaldtrump as their first act feeds into what the Democrats and media want and is disappointing and unproductive.”Mitt’s attack on the president was more than a little hypocritical, given that he had unsuccessfully begged him for a cabinet position and had happily accepted his support last fall when he was running for Utah’s senate seat.There may be many Republicans who agree exactly with everything Romney said, but that’s not the point.It was stupid of him to write a column excoriating the president two days before he even took his Senate seat.He wants to be treated with respect in the Senate, and this is the way he starts?He should have showed up in Washington, taken his Senate seat and said and done nothing.If he has complaints or comments about the president, he should have made them to Trump in private.Trump quickly put Mitt in his place with his tweets and now Senate Majority Leader Mitch McConnell will have to do it in the Senate.For the next two years or so McConnell will have to remind Senator Mitt exactly who he is and isn’t:“Take your seat, Mr. Romney. You’re a junior member of the senate. You’re not our party spokesman. You have to earn the right to be a spokesman, the way Lindsay Graham has.”What Mitt did with his op-ed piece – beside pump up his deflated ego, hurt his own party, help the Democrats and give the liberal media free Republican ammo to fire at the president – was to really piss off his new boss McConnell.I don’t think McConnell will be calling on the rookie senator from Utah anytime soon to seek his advice on anything.Meanwhile, now that Nancy Pelosi and her leftist Democrat children have taken control of the House of Representatives, the next two years are going to be very rough for the president, the GOP and conservatives.The last thing they needed was another egotistical Republican flake running loose in the Senate, but it looks like that’s what the junior senator from Utah is going to be.

Pret to axe 30 stores and reduce staff levels across business

first_imgPret A Manger is to restructure its business because of the impact the coronavirus outbreak has had on cashflow and costs.As a result, 30 shops across the UK will close permanently in the second half of 2020, and the company is to cut the size of its support teams and shop staff across its remaining UK sites to reflect lower levels of demand. A consultation has started this week.Year-on-year sales in Pret’s UK shops are currently down 74% year on year. The company said it was experiencing a much slower recovery in the UK compared with other countries it trades in.Pret has 410 shops in the UK, 339 of which have reopened.The business is also looking to sell the lease on its main office in London and has brought in external consultants Alvarez & Marsal and CWM to complete an estate review and resizing programme, working with landlords to ensure the continuation of as many of its UK shops as possible. Discussions with landlords across the Pret estate over a more sustainable leasehold model are ongoing.“When the coronavirus crisis hit, we said our priority was to protect our people, our customers and, of course, Pret,” said Pret CEO Pano Christou.“Although we were able to do that through the lockdown, thanks in particular to the government’s vital support, we cannot defy gravity and continue with the business model we had before the pandemic.”Christou added he was devastated that the business would be losing so many employees.“These decisions are not a reflection on anyone’s work or commitment. But we must make these changes to succeed in the new retail environment.”Pret is looking to reshape its business model through new sales channels. In recent weeks, it has launched retail coffee in Amazon and broadened its delivery and online presence with Deliveroo, Just Eat and Uber Eats, as well as launching click-and-collect trials in five shops in London.The company said sales through delivery services had grown 480% year on year, and now represented more than 8% of total UK sales.Pret also plans to launch further innovations, including an evening delivery menu to be trialled from seven shops and a new hub kitchen in north London.“While Pret may look and feel different in the short term, one thing I know is that we will come through this crisis and have a bright future if we take the right steps today,” said Christou.last_img read more
