NFL releases new statement as Patriots owner Robert Kraft faces threat of arrest warrant in prostitution scandal
February 25, 2019 /Sports News – National NFL releases new statement as Patriots owner Robert Kraft faces threat of arrest warrant in prostitution scandal Written by Beau Lund FacebookTwitterLinkedInEmailKevin C. Cox/Getty Images(NEW YORK) — The NFL said Monday it will “take appropriate action as warranted” as it reviews allegations that New England Patriots owner Robert Kraft engaged in sexual acts at a Florida massage parlor.“Our Personal Conduct Policy applies equally to everyone in the NFL,” the NFL said in a statement. “We will handle this allegation in the same way we would handle any issue under the policy. We are seeking a full understanding of the facts, while ensuring that we do not interfere with an ongoing law enforcement investigation.”Kraft faces two counts of solicitation of another to commit prostitution at Orchids of Asia Day Spa, Jupiter Police Chief Daniel Kerr said Friday.Twenty-five people were charged in the sting at the Jupiter spa. Authorities set up hidden cameras at the spa and, Jupiter Police Detective Andrew Sharp said, there’s video evidence of all of the suspects, including Kraft, participating in the alleged sexual acts.Stacey James, a spokeswoman for Kraft, 77, said in a statement Friday, “We categorically deny that Mr. Kraft engaged in any illegal activity. Because it is a judicial matter, we will not be commenting further.”An arrest warrant could be issued as early as Monday.The charges against Kraft are misdemeanors, said Sharp.The allegations against Kraft come three weeks after the Patriots beat the Los Angeles Rams to win the team’s sixth Super Bowl title.This year marks the 25th anniversary of Kraft’s then-NFL record $175 million purchase of the Patriots in 1994.

A survey of over 250,000 homes in the UK has revealed the full horror of the nation’s poor national broadband service including thousands of streets where speeds are below one megabit per second (Mbps), on average.The worst is in Bamforlong in Gloucester at 0.143 Mbps and the best street is in Birmingham where its average speed is 265.89 Mbps . The average speed in the UK is 46.3 Mbps , the research by uSwitch reveals.The worst region is north of the Mersey in cities such as Manchester, South Yorkshire and Merseyside while the South West has some of the best speeds. But a quarter of all homes in the UK struggle to attain 10 Mbps or above and one in eight crawl along at less than 5 Mbps.Purchasing decisionsThe UK’s terrible broadband has recently begun affecting buyers’ purchasing decisions, separate research shows.Data from trade website ISPreview found well over half of all house hunters would reject an ideal home if it offered broadband speeds of less than 100 Mbps , and a third would negotiate a lower price.uSwitch also casts doubt on the ‘superfast’ claims of many broadband providers, revealing that seven of the 20 slowest streets in the UK have access to so-called superfast broadband.“This research lays bare the extent of the UK’s digital divide,” says Dani Warner (left), uSwitch’s broadband expert.“Streets that are relatively close geographically can be light years apart when it comes to the download speeds they are getting. For those who can’t yet obtain faster speeds – which the industry is directly aiming to address with the roll-out of full-fibre – improvements really can’t come soon enough.” Dani Warner uSwitch December 12, 2018Nigel LewisWhat’s your opinion?

Auction house launches ‘buy it now’ Ebay-style serviceProperty site set to revolutionise private treaty sales with new instant property purchase ‘Secure Now’ platform launch.Sheila Manchester14th June 20191 Comment1,610 Views A property platform best known for online property auctions has moved to offer instant property purchases as part of their service expansion.UnderTheHammer, a property sales website with a nationwide network of estate agents, property buyers, and sellers, has introduced ‘Secure Now’ to its platform, which they say is aimed at making property transactions instant, more secure, and transparent.Sellers and agents are able to list properties for a fixed price at their discretion. Buyers are then able to go online and purchase the property immediately at any time, and pay an exclusivity deposit in order to secure the property.There are then fixed time scales to exchange and complete on the property transaction, with 28 days to exchange and a further 28 days to complete – providing clarity, speed, and time for buyers to secure financing and avoid issues in the transaction process.Sales revolutionThe platform has introduced ‘Secure Now’ alongside changes to their auction process to provide a quicker, fairer, and more transparent property auction transaction as UnderTheHammer looks to revolutionise the culture of buying and selling properties both at auction and online.Thomas Gilday, an Auction Specialist at UnderTheHammer, says that the advancements come as a natural evolution, using what the company has learnt so far, “In the last year, Under The Hammer has worked with hundreds of agents, property sellers, and buyers. In that time, we’ve learnt from comments, reviews, and suggestions from all three on how we can improve the service and drive forward the property revolution.”“At our core is speed, security, and transparency. The changes to our auction platform, and the exciting introduction of our ‘Secure Now’ service, will help us improve the property buying and selling process in these areas even more.”“With our Secure Now service, we’re able to offer immediate security of the transaction for our sellers, whilst also allowing for buyers to make an instant decision to purchase a property at any time, day or night.”Thomas Gilday Under The Hammer Secure Now property sales website Sheila Manchester June 14, 2019The NegotiatorOne commentMichael Leyton, littlewoods estate agents littlewoods estate agents 14th June 2019 at 11:45 amHang on…”Instant Property Purchase” 56 days from agreeing a sale? I presume said sale is still subject to contract and survey in the normal way then? Is that what they call instant? Sounds like Purplebricks and their Commisery again! So, in which case no greater transparency than any other traditional method of sale. The only difference is an organised end date and frankly not much quicker than the current traditional method. Anyone can fix an on or before closing date, some corporate agents have been doing that since God was a boy…and that’s not rocket science or a property revolutuion. So, who is this fantastic new system actually meant to benefit? Does the bidder have to be chain free? can they secure a proposed purchase before selling their own home ? Do their finances need to be in place before bidding, to prove they are not wasting everyone’s time ? would be great to know …more info pleaseLog in to ReplyWhat’s your opinion?

Average revenue per agent dropped from £198 to £130 during the 12 months to its year end on January 31st, reflecting its ‘freebie’ strategy of getting agents on board.

Last year it spent £14.9 million on advertising alone, helping drive operating loss from £3.9 million to £14.5 million.“We are established as one of the leading portals and our progress to date has given us confidence that we can continue to build on this strong start and develop a market-leading, agent-backed alternative to Rightmove and Zoopla,” says CEO Ian Springett (left).“We are benefitting from growing agent support and are strongly positioned to continue our growth in agent offices listing and in agent firms converting to becoming investors alongside long-term paying contracts.
