Facebook Twitter Google+LinkedInPinterestWhatsAppProvidenciales, 06 May 2015 – Rejoice but don’t relax because the demands on the industry will increase; a caution coming from the Governor, His Excellency Peter Beckingham. It seems H.E. is back in action and according to a report reaching our newsroom yesterday he is praising the recent accolades for the tourism industry while warning that there is still room for improvement. He said, and I quote: “I am constantly struck by how seldom visitors get beyond Grace Bay. I can understand that the typical 3-4 day American visitor may not have the urge to travel after arriving in Providenciales. But Grand Turk and the other family islands need to receive a higher profile, and as a result get more visitors than the tiny proportion they receive of stay-over tourists.” The governor revealed that he is also watching to see how Tourism will spend its boosted budget and how the country’s gateway will enhance guest services. “I also would like to see an even more welcoming approach to visitors at Providenciales airport. They are literally the lifeblood of the prosperity or otherwise of everyone in the Turks and Caicos Islands. The heads of the public service and government departments, as well as the management of the Airport Authority, need to be constantly asking themselves whether there are ways to make the TCI welcome better than it is. There is still some way to go.” A candid presentation by the Governor to the Turks and Caicos Hotel and Tourism Association yesterday which is about a week away from a seven city tour or fam trip to North America.

The manager was shocked that the referee didn’t award his team a penalty kick after a first half four over Ashley Barnes.In the first half of the Burnley-Southampton match, Saints goalkeeper Alex McCarthy fouled Ashley Barnes.But the referee didn’t see it like that and booked Barnes for simulation.Then in the second half, Nathan Redmon gave Southampton the lead, until Barnes was given the chance to take a penalty kick in the last play of the game to even things out 1-1.“I have absolutely no idea, whatsoever, why that penalty wasn’t awarded,” Burnley coach Sean Dyche told the team’s official website.“I’ll just reiterate that when players fall naturally, I don’t think they are getting penalties.”This is the team’s first penalty in 68 English Premier League matches.“I think I’ve been honest enough to speak about that this season, when results have gone against us, such as when Harry Kane should have had one and West Ham should have been awarded one, and I just don’t know where the game is going,” the manager continued.“Dives get given as penalties and real falls are not getting given and just because Ashley hasn’t thrown his arms in the air and rolled around 10 times, he gets nothing.”Solskjaer slams Man United’s draw: “We should have won” Andrew Smyth – August 31, 2019 Ole Gunnar Solskjaer was left to rue another missed opportunity as Manchester United were held to a 1-1 draw against 10-man Southampton.“The keeper comes out trying to do his job. the center forward gets there first and toes it past him, and the keeper brings him down,” he tried to explain the penalty.“It is impossible, in my opinion, that that is not a penalty and I just don’t understand it.”Burnley FC is currently sitting in the 17th position of the standings with just 24 points after 25 matches.The team has only won six games, drawing another six and losing 13.Their next match is on Saturday, February 9th against Brighton and Hove Albion.REACTION | Gaffer gives his thoughts on the two penalty incidents…WATCH MORE ➡️ https://t.co/cL58ew9PZb pic.twitter.com/B0d4OQpnJY— Burnley FC (@BurnleyOfficial) February 2, 2019
Shortly after Reed Business Information announced in April that that it was shuttering 23 magazine brands, former group publishers Tony Mancini and Rick Blesi formed a company called MB Media and in May acquired the 13 brands published within RBI’s Construction Media Group. Now, a little over a month later, MB Media is actively looking for a buyer for the group, FOLIO: has learned.According to sources, Mancini and Blesi have “very aggressively” been searching either for a buyer or an angel investor and have already talked to several media companies. Cygnus Publishing president Mike Martin confirmed that Cygnus (whichpublishes several brands in the construction market) had been approached by MB Media and that the company agreed to take an initial look atthose properties. Those conversations, however, have so far been“informal,” Martin says.”They were probably more or less given these products with no working capital and no infrastructure, and now they’re finding they don’t have the resources to actually operate these products,” says one b-to-b publishing CEO who does not wish to be identified. A number of other trade publishers that have construction-related brands within their portfolios could also be potential suitors. When contacted byFOLIO:, representatives at Hanley Wood, McGraw-Hill Construction andtrucking/construction publisher Randall-Reilly all declined to comment.One source, who wishes to remain anonymous, says Mancini and Blesi are shopping the brands together as a unit and requested that final offers from interested parties be submitted by the first week in June. Another source says the men are asking to remain with the properties, even if they wind up under new management. Whether or not any offers were submitted was not immediately clear. Mancini, who serves as MB Media’s CEO, did not immediately return requests for comment. MB Media is made up of Building Design+Construction, Custom Builder, Construction Equipment, Housing Giants, Professional Builder, Professional Remodeler, Construction Bulletin, SpecCheck, BDCnetwork.com, LogInAndLearn.com, VisibleCity.com, ConstructionEquipment.com, and HousingZone.com.Not the First Turnaround SaleLast month, Dan Hogan, who acquired HOTELS and Foodservice Equipment and Supplies after they shut down, sold HOTELS to Chicago-based Marketing & Technology Group. Hogan, who had served as publisher of HOTELS under RBI, is said to have passed ownership of Foodservice Equipment and Supplies to a former colleague (a source says Hogan “purchased” the magazine on behalf of that colleague). Hogan at the time did not return an e-mail seeking comment.Seperately, newly-formed CFE Media LLC (which acquired Control Engineering, Consulting-Specifying Engineer and Plant Engineering after RBI shut them down) and Peerless Media (acquired Logistics Management, Modern Materials Handling, Supply Chain Management Review and Material Handling Product News) have established partnerships with RBI’s marketing data services arm Mardev-DM2 to manage their subscriber lists.

Brett KavanaughThe woman accusing judge Brett Kavanaugh of sexually assaulting her is willing to tell her story in public to a Senate panel considering his nomination to the Supreme Court, her lawyer said Monday.Kavanaugh had been on a smooth confirmation track, but the new allegations have roiled that process. Republican senators have expressed concern over a woman’s private-turned-public allegation that a drunken Kavanaugh groped her and tried to take off her clothes at a party when they were teenagers.Debra S Katz, the attorney for the woman, Christine Blasey Ford, said her client considered the incident to be an attempted rape.”She believes that if were not for the severe intoxication of Brett Kavanaugh, she would have been raped,” Katz told NBC’s “Today.”Kavanaugh has “categorically and unequivocally” denied the allegations, a statement the White House repeated Monday.”This has not changed,” said White House spokesman Kerri Kupec. “Judge Kavanaugh and the White House both stand by that statement.”In morning television interviews, Katz said her client was willing to tell her story in public to the Senate Judiciary Committee, although no lawmakers or their aides had yet contacted her. Katz also denied that Ford, a Democrat, is politically motivated.”No one in their right mind regardless of their motives would want to inject themselves into this process and face the kind of violation that she will be subjected to by those who want this nominee to go though. … She was quite reluctant to come forward.”Initially the sexual misconduct allegation was conveyed in a private letter, without revealing Ford’s name. With a name and disturbing details, the accusation raised the prospect of congressional Republicans defending president Donald Trump’s nominee ahead of midterm elections featuring an unprecedented number of female candidates and informed in part by the #MeToo movement.The GOP-controlled Senate Judiciary Committee appeared nonetheless committed to a vote later this week despite Ford’s account in The Washington Post.Kavanaugh, she told the Post, pinned her to a bed at a Maryland party in the early 1980s, clumsily tried to remove her clothing and put his hand over her mouth when she tried to scream.Ford said Kavanaugh and a friend – both “stumbling drunk,” she says – corralled her in a bedroom when she was around 15 and Kavanaugh was around 17. She says Kavanaugh groped her over her clothes, grinded his body against hers and tried to take off her one-piece swimsuit and the outfit she wore over it. Kavanaugh covered her mouth with his hand when she tried to scream, she says, and escaped when Judge jumped on them.Kavanaugh attended a private school for boys in Maryland while Ford attended a nearby school.Through the White House, Kavanaugh, 53, a federal appeals judge in Washington, said: “I categorically and unequivocally deny this allegation. I did not do this back in high school or at any time.”A split seemed to be emerging among the GOP.As Democrats, led by Minority Leader Chuck Schumer of New York, called for a delay in the vote, two committee Republicans – all 11 on the GOP side are men – Sens. Jeff Flake of Arizona and Lindsey Graham of South Carolina, said they wanted to hear more from Ford. Flake went as far as to say he was “not comfortable” voting for Kavanaugh for the time being.A potential “no” vote from Flake would complicate the judge’s prospects. A Republican not on the committee, Sen. Bob Corker of Tennessee, said the vote should be postponed until the committee heard from Ford. Contacted Sunday by CNN, Sen. Susan Collins, R-Maine, wouldn’t say if the vote should be postponed.A committee spokesman said late Sunday that its chairman, Sen. Chuck Grassley of Iowa, was trying to arrange separate, follow-up calls with Kavanaugh and Ford, but just for aides to Grassley and Sen. Dianne Feinstein, D-Calif., before Thursday’s scheduled vote. Critics have already accused the GOP of fast-tracking the process to get Kavanaugh on the court by 1 October, the first day of the fall term.The allegation against Kavanaugh first came to light late last week in the form of a letter that had been for some time in the possession of Feinstein, the top Democrat on the Judiciary Committee and one of its four female members. On Sunday, The Washington Post published an interview with Ford, who after months of soul-searching decided to go public.”I thought he might inadvertently kill me,” said Ford, 51, a clinical psychology professor at Palo Alto University in California. “He was trying to attack me and remove my clothing.” She told the Post that she was able to escape after a friend of Kavanaugh’s who was in the room jumped on top of them and everyone tumbled.In the interview, Ford says she never revealed what had happened to her until 2012, when she and her husband sought couples therapy. Ford’s husband, Russell Ford, said he recalled his wife using Kavanaugh’s last name and expressing concern that Kavanaugh – then a federal judge – might someday be nominated to the Supreme Court.Senate Republicans, along with the White House, see no need to postpone voting over what they consider uncorroborated and unverifiable accusations, according to a person familiar with the situation but not authorized to speak publicly.In considering their options Sunday, Republicans largely settled on the view that Ford’s story alone was not enough to delay Kavanaugh’s confirmation.Grassley could invite Ford to testify, likely in closed session before Thursday. Kavanaugh would also probably be asked to appear before senators. The panel would also likely seek testimony from Mark Judge, Kavanaugh’s friend and classmate who Ford says jumped on top of her and Kavanaugh. Judge has denied that the incident happened.Republicans have not settled on the strategy, the person familiar with the situation said, but were weighing options, including doing nothing.Republicans say the allegations have already cast a shadow over Kavanaugh but that it does not appear to be enough to change the votes in the narrowly divided 51-49 Senate. Key will be the views of Collins and Sen. Lisa Murkowski of Alaska. Both are under enormous pressure from outside groups who want them to oppose Kavanaugh on grounds that as a justice he could vote to undercut the Roe v. Wade ruling legalizing abortion in the U.S.The White House has accused Feinstein of mounting an “11th hour attempt to delay his confirmation.” The White House has also sought to cast doubt about Ford’s allegation by noting that the FBI has repeatedly investigated Kavanaugh since the 1990s for highly sensitive positions he has held, including in the office of independent counsel Ken Starr, at the White House and his current post on the federal appeals court in Washington.Sixty-five women who knew Kavanagh in high school defended him in a separate letter, circulated by Senate Judiciary Committee Republicans, as someone who “always treated women with decency and respect.”
