The Best Markets For Residential Property Investors 2 days ago Governmental Measures Target Expanded Access to Affordable Housing 2 days ago Coronavirus Investment Rental 2020-04-25 Seth Welborn Related Articles The Week Ahead: Nearing the Forbearance Exit 2 days ago With many renters may not be able to pay rent during the COVID-19 pandemic, some landlords are going to struggle with the mortgage, which means an opportunity for some property investors, according to Marketplace. Daniel Lebensohn, co-founder of the investment firm BH3, said buying distressed debt during the last financial crisis built the foundation of his company.“Now’s the time to innovate and go hunting because there will be opportunities,” Lebensohn said.Meanwhile, KC Conway, chief economist at the CCIM Institute, thinks market changes will come in two phases.“Phase one is really a repricing opportunity. And I think then the acquisition comes a little bit later, maybe six months down the road,” he said.Jim Costello, SVP at Real Capital Analytics, told Marketplace that the investment surge could get there at some point, but it’s just not there yet.“It’s not as if anybody who owns anything is suddenly going to step up and say, ‘Oh, sure. A month ago, I could have sold this building for $400 a foot, but because I’m afraid of what’s happened in the market, you can buy for $200 per square foot,’” Costello told Marketplace.As the administration looks for a path forward for the national economy, one policy change that could ultimately lead to a boost in investment for infrastructure and jobs is the repeal of the Foreign Investment in Real Property Act (FIRPTA), according to at least on tax expert. In fact, several members of Congress had already called for the repeal of a particular section of the act prior to the partial economic shutdown this spring.“Rolling back FIRPTA will result in a much-needed influx of billions of new, debt-free financing for everything from new roads to multifamily housing,” stated Alex Hendrie, Director of Tax Policy at Americans for Tax Reform, in an article published Wednesday in Real Clear Markets.The Foreign Investment in Real Property Act places higher taxes on foreign real estate investors than domestic investors. The act was expanded in 2007 to apply to real estate investment trusts (REITS).“Specifically, REIT liquidating distributions to domestic shareholders are treated as sales of stock, while such distributions to foreign shareholders are treated as capital gain distributions,” explained a letter several senators sent to the Treasury in December requesting the repeal of that particular section of the Foreign Investment in Real Property Act.

The plaintiffs include the production houses of Bollywood big names Aamir Khan, Sharukh Khan(Red Chillies), Salmaan Khan, Ajay Devgn, Anil Kapoor and major production houses such as Yashraj Films, Dharma Productions (of Karan Johar), Nadiadwala, Excel, Vidhu Vinod Chopra films, Vishal Bharadwaj, Reliance Big etc.The plaintiffs include the production houses of stars Aamir Khan, Sharukh Khan(Red Chillies), Salmaan Khan, Ajay Devgn, Anil Kapoor and major production houses such as Yashraj Films, Nadiadwala, Excel, Vidhu Vinod Chopra films, Vishal Bharadwaj, Reliance Big etc. pic.twitter.com/MDRfXEnbar— Live Law (@LiveLawIndia) October 12, 2020 As per the plaint, the channels have been using highly derogatory words and expressions for Bollywood such as “dirt”, “filth”, “scum”, “druggies” and expressions such as “it is Bollywood where the dirt needs to be cleaned”, “all the perfumes of Arabia cannot take away the stench and the stink of this filth and scum of the underbelly of Bollywood”, “This is the dirtiest industry in the country”, and “cocaine and LSD drenched Bollywood”. It is pleaded that Bollywood is a distinct and well recognised class, comprising the Hindi film industry in Mumbai. Since several years Bollywood is a huge source of revenue for the public exchequer, earns significant foreign exchange for India by way of revenue from overseas releases of films, tourism etc., and is a big source of employment, with various other industries also being largely dependent on it. Bollywood is unique and stands on a different footing from any other industry inasmuch as it is an industry that is dependent almost solely on goodwill, appreciation and acceptance of its audience. The livelihood of persons associated with Bollywood is being severely impacted by the smear campaign being run by the Defendants. This is in addition to the ongoing pandemic which has resulted in extreme revenues and work opportunity loss. The privacy of the members of Bollywood is being invaded, and their reputations are being irreparably damaged by painting the entire Bollywood as criminals, seeped in drug culture, and making being part of Bollywood as synonymous with criminal acts in the public imagination.As per the plaint, the news channels have suffered penalties in the past for irresponsible reporting and have invited reprimands from courts and authorities.It is pointed out that following the death of actor Sushant Singh Rajput, the channels resorted to frenzied reporting against the Hindi film industry suggesting that the CBI would start arresting major actors.The suit contends that some of the Defendants are also openly flouting the Programme Code framed under Section 5 of the Cable Television Networks (Regulation) Act, 1995 contained in Rule 6 of the Cable Television Network Rules, 1994, which governs the television channels owned and operated by these Defendants. These Defendants are conducting and publishing parallel private ‘investigations’ and effectively acting as “courts” to condemn persons connected with Bollywood as guilty based on what they claim is “evidence” found by them, thereby trying to make a mockery of the criminal justice system, the plaint states.The Plaintiffs clarified that they are not seeking a blanket gag order against media reportage of the investigation in the cases relating to the death of Mr. Sushant Singh Rajput or the related cases registered by the NCB. They said that they are merely seeking perpetual and mandatory injunction against the Defendants from carrying on reportage and publication of material that violates applicable laws. The full list of plaintiffs are: The Film & Television Producers Guild Of India (PGI) The Cine & TV Artistes’ Association (CINTAA) Indian Film and TV Producers Council (IFTPC) Screenwriters Association (SWA) Aamir Khan Productions Ad-Labs Films Ajay Devgn Fflims Andolan Films Anil Kapoor Film and Communication Network Arbaaz Khan Productions Ashutosh Gowariker Productions BSK Network and Entertainment Cape of Good Films Clean Slate Filmz Dharma Productions Emmay Entertainment & Motion Pictures Excel Entertainment Filmkraft Productions Hope Production Kabir Khan Films Luv Films Macguffin Pictures Nadiadwala Grandson Entertainment One India Stories R.S.

She has engaged in a number of types of sex work, primarily escorting and ‘girlfriend experience’- when a client pays for a sex-worker to pretend to be in a relationship with them during the session.She told Cherwell: “The reality is that I definitely like sex, but sex as a sex worker is absolutely a chore. The cost of student living though seems to be ever increasing, so sex work is one of my main means of survival at the moment.“It’s an incredibly dangerous type of work to be involved with and in the past, I have felt threatened and at risk with clients, which has caused significant mental and emotional obstacles in my life to overcome that have impacted on all sorts of relationships.“I was unable to have sex with my partner without crying for quite a while during my first summer as a sex worker.“The job is very risky – I was employed by a company one summer as an intern on the condition that I had sex with the boss whenever he wanted.“To be honest, that job really fucked with me because I had to be constantly aware that he could want sex at any time and I had to be prepared to give it regardless of how I was feeling in case I lost the job or he withheld my wages (even if I wastired, ill, didn’t want, etc.).“Being cautious about what pictures I share anywhere on social media is something I’m always alert about in case a client finds it somehow.”Anna also said that student sex workers are especially vulnerable because clients know they need money: “I once had a client ‘forget’ to pay me after 3 hours of sex, and another who requested that I go to his house to do incredibly hard-core bondage overnight for only £200.” Oxford’s student sex workers are being asked whether the University is doing enough to ensure their safety and wellbeing in a new survey initiated by the Students’ Union.SU VP Women Katt Walton, who wrote the survey, told Cherwell: “There is a demographic of students at this University who are engaging in sex work. I want to get information on how many there are, whether they felt that the University currently supports them, and if the University not providing enough financial support was a factor.“There’s obviously a massive stigma around sex work, and I wanted students to feel like if they needed to access University support through, for example, through the Sexual Violence Support Service or through the counselling service that they wouldn’t be met with hostility or judgement if they disclosed that they were sex workers.”The 43-question survey was sent out last week and asks about a multitude of aspects of sex work, from how it has affected the respondents’ self-esteem and their perception of the attitude towards sex work to the intricacies of their safe sex practices, how they advertise, and what services they provide.Walton told Cherwell: “I was worried students might feel uncomfortable filling the survey in and might not want to engage with it, but it has been really successful. Hopefully it will give us an image of what sex work is like in the University.”The survey also examines the demographics of student sex workers, including what college at which they study. Walton said: “Some colleges have a lot more money than others, so I think it might come out that students are having to fund their time as a student through sex work.”Anna (not her real name) agreed to speak to Cherwell about her experience as a student sex worker. Knowing she wouldn’t be able to cover her living costs in Oxford, she entered the sex industry during her Masters out of financial necessity: “I spoke to a friend who had experience as a sex worker and it seemed like an option that could suit me.” She told Cherwell that the University should do more to support sex workers: “It’s hard to access support without outing yourself as a sex worker unnecessarily. The University could provide or at least sign-post sex workers to Hepatitis B vaccines (of which there’s a national shortage), regular blood tests, and free condoms, lube, and other forms of contraception.“In addition, supporting student sexworkers emotionally, with counselling and therapy, is something the University certainly has the resources to offer potentially through the Counselling or Student Welfare Services.”Anna spoke positively about the SU initiative, telling Cherwell: “We’re a very vulnerable group in many ways – we’re often anonymous, and do our work secretly which entails huge risks. The University has the capacity to protect and support all of its students – even invisible minorities.“The SU’s survey of sex workers I think can hugely benefit sex workers as a community because we would no longer need to be as isolated or hidden as before. That can only be a good thing.”Sex work is currently legal in England, Wales, and Scotland. However, almost all activities surrounding prostitution other than buying sexual services are illegal.A University spokesperson said: “We strongly discourage students from taking part in any activity like this which exposes them to dangerous situations.“We encourage any students facing financial difficulties to talk to the hardship officer in their college or the central university’s hardship fund. All students should also feel comfort-able to approach their college welfare team or the central services team if they haveany welfare issues.”The National Union of Students (NUS) conducted a similar survey in 2016. One of the insights that survey provided was that more than half of students sex workers identified as LGBTQ+, and over half stated that they had a learning disability, other disability, long-term health condition, or impairment.The National Union of Students (NUS) conducted a similar survey in 2016.One of the insights that survey provided was that more than half of students sex workers identified as LGBTQ+, and over half stated that they had a learning disability, other disability, long-term health condition, or impairment.
Tyler Onesty is pictured with his younger brother, Zach, while playing miniature golf in Maine in 2003. (Courtesy Sally Onesty) By Donald WittkowskiPlaying miniature golf was one of Tyler Onesty’s favorite things to do.With that in mind, Sally Onesty, Tyler’s mother, has chosen a miniature golf course as the location for a scholarship fundraiser that will focus on an epidemic that has killed her son and scores of other people – drug addiction.The first ever Tyler Jay Onesty Memorial Scholarship Benefit will be held from 1-4 p.m. on Sunday, May 6, at Golden Galleon Mini Golf at 11th Street and the Boardwalk in Ocean City. Tickets are $10.All of the proceeds will go toward scholarships for current and future Ocean City High School students who have been affected by drug addiction in some way and are furthering their education at the college level or at a trade school.Sally Onesty, an Ocean City beauty salon owner, said the event will raise awareness of the opioid crisis that is sweeping through Cape May County and the rest of the nation. It is her hope that the fundraiser will help to save lives.“It’s just raising the level of awareness not only for potential addicts, but also for families that are dealing with potential or current addiction,” she said.The fundraiser will also help to pay for scholarships for students who are pursuing a career in addiction services, mental health or the medical field.In addition, it will provide money for young people in Atlantic and Cape May counties who are trying to stay sober after going through detox or rehab, including paying for their rides to treatment facilities.Another component of the fundraiser is to help pay for drug-counseling options for individuals or families.Ever since her 22-year-old son died of a heroin overdose last year, Onesty has helped other drug abusers to get into detox and rehab centers.Onesty and her family went through drug intervention in an effort to save Tyler. For two years, they placed him in drug rehabilitation centers in New Jersey, Florida and California. Still, Tyler couldn’t shake the addiction that would eventually kill him.Tyler Onesty, a 2012 graduate of Ocean City High School, was only 22 when he died last year of a heroin overdose. (Courtesy Sally Onesty)Inspired by her son’s death, Onesty and her family are committed to fighting drug addiction by publicly speaking about Tyler’s troubles. Their decision to go public began when the family chose to livestream Tyler’s memorial service on Facebook.In the past year, Sally Onesty has worked with parents, students, local schools, city officials, the police, churches, hospitals, drug abuse organizations and other groups on a communitywide coalition to fight addiction. Onesty is well-known in Ocean City as the owner of A Bella Salon & Spa.In the latest step in her efforts to battle addiction, Onesty created the scholarship fund in her son’s memory. She chose a miniature golf course as the setting for the first scholarship fundraiser because it serves as a fond reminder of one of Tyler’s favorite pastimes. Onesty explained that the fundraiser will also allow people to gather in an inconspicuous location to discuss the opioid and heroin crisis. She noted that the stigma of drug addiction often discourages families from confronting the problem and seeking treatment.“This type of event will bring people out in a non-conspicuous way,” Onesty said of the fundraiser.Tickets for the fundraiser may be purchased in advance at A Bella Salon & Spa, 601 E. Ninth Street, Ocean City. They may also be purchased the day of the fundraiser from 1-4 p.m. at Golden Galleon Mini Golf, 1124 Boardwalk. Donations may be made by calling Sally Onesty at A Bella Salon & Spa at (609) 399-6999.
One Stop convenience stores has struck a new partnership with Country Choice, as it sees opportunity in the in-store bakery sector.The bakery roll out has already begun, although will only be implemented in stores where it is feasible to work. It is unclear how many stores this may be.The One Stop franchisees will be offered a support package to ensure a smooth transition into the bakery market, which includes monthly representative visits and top up training. It will also get a unique promotional programme from the ISB provider, which will tie in with One Stop’s promotional timetable.One Stop Franchise’s head of commercial, Galen Levi, said: “In-store bakery is a growing opportunity – with sales growing by 14% in convenience last year and 44% of shoppers expecting a convenience store to have an in-store bakery. “Whether retailers already offer this or are looking to move into it, our new package with Country Choice will enable our franchisees to develop their bakery and food to go offering, with the minimum amount of risk. The additional benefits we’re giving our franchisees are a reward for the consistency and compliance we can offer throughout our estate. Suppliers know that they can count on us to deliver what we promise.”The deal with Country Choice means that each store will be given two cases of product for sampling purposes during the launch activity.
