Chicago alligator nicknamed ‘Chance the Snapper’ evades capture, draws onlookers

Posted On May 18 2021 by

first_imgJoe Raedle/Getty Images(CHICAGO) — The reptilian attraction that has taken Chicago by storm continues to evade capture, as authorities ramp up their search efforts and city residents yearn for a spotting.The alligator, which was first spotted Tuesday, has drawn quite the fan base as it dodges traps in the Humboldt Park lagoon.“I think they named him, what, ‘Chance the Snapper,’” onlooker Xavier Perez told ABC Chicago station WLS. “So coming out here to see Chance.”“I don’t really like them but I am really excited to see if it is out there in the lake,” Layla Ortiz told the station.Officials have been working day and night to humanely capture the animal, Jenny Schlueter, a spokeswoman for Chicago Animal Care and Control, told ABC News Friday.“It’s just not gonna be easy to do,” Schlueter said. “The traps are set around the clock … Chicago police department is on the scene or an animal control officer at all times, so someone is always there.”The alligator is believed to have been a pet that someone dropped in the lagoon, Schlueter said. The new territory, and the alligator’s need to acclimate to that territory, are possible reasons why the animal hasn’t taken to the traps, which include chicken drumsticks, fish and rats.“We don’t know when the alligator ate last, and if he’s not hungry or he’s too nervous to eat then it’s just a waiting game,” Schlueter added. “It could be weeks or months until he eats again.”The noise from the many residents may also be scaring off the reptile from surfacing, she noted.“Imagine, he was living in a bathtub or a tank and then to an 8-acre lagoon,” she said.The Chicago Animal Care and Control department connected with the Illinois Department of Natural Resources (DNR) Friday to try to come up with a plan as to how to capture the alligator before the weekend, according to Schlueter.The Illinois DNR is sending more officers to help and authorities are laying more traps.The alligator was last seen by a police officer around 2 a.m. Thursday, but has not been spotted since, according to Chicago police.“We haven’t trapped it yet,” Anthony Guglielmi, spokesman for the police department, wrote ABC News in an email. “The traps were set but he hasn’t taken the bait.”A volunteer with the Chicago Herpetological Society, known as Alligator Bob, is one of the many people assigned to the case. Members of the Illinois Conservation Police and Chicago Animal Care and Control have also been part of the search efforts.The Chicago Park District did not comment on updates to the case.Alligator Bob has monitored the animal’s movements and moved the traps as he sees fit, Schlueter said. The traps are checked every two hours.Police have put up a temporary fence and signs, reminding residents of the dangers.“The alligator is a wild animal and poses immense danger to any person who could come into contact with it,” Chicago police wrote in a tweet.Since 1998, the city has seen 20 alligators, Schlueter said. Some came through confiscating resident’s pets, while others were rescued from the Chicago River or Lake Michigan. She believes it is the first time an alligator has ever surfaced in the Humboldt Park lagoon.“It’s not usual,” she noted, “but it isn’t the first time it’s happened, either.”Copyright © 2019, ABC Radio.

NBA events canceled in China as fallout over Hong Kong tweet continues

Posted On May 8 2021 by

first_imgOctober 9, 2019 /Sports News – National NBA events canceled in China as fallout over Hong Kong tweet continues FacebookTwitterLinkedInEmailiStock(SHANGHAI) — As the fallout over a since-deleted tweet voicing support for Hong Kong by the general manager of an American basketball team continues in China, several NBA Cares events were abruptly canceled this week in Shanghai.Meanwhile, the world of esports is navigating a controversy of its own, after a high-profile gamer from Hong Kong was banned from the platform Blizzard for voicing support for protesters in Hong Kong during a post-game interview. In a statement announcing his removal, Blizzard said they were banning player Blitzchung for violating its competition rules by engaging in an act that “offends a portion or group of the public, or otherwise damages Blizzard image.”Both cases have illustrated the difficulty of navigating China’s lucrative market.Before the controversial tweet, the Rockets were one of the most beloved teams in China. On Oct 4., its general manager Daryl Morey tweeted in support of pro-democracy demonstrators in Hong Kong. While the tweet was quickly deleted, the backlash was swift. Within a few days, China’s state-run broadcasting network ordered a blackout of NBA coverage. China’s internet giant Tencent, which inked a five-year, $1.5 billion deal in August to stream NBA games in China, also announced that they will not play Rockets games.Morey has apologized, and the Rockets owner Tilman Fertitta said that Morey does not speak for them. Rockets players James Harden and Russell Westbrook apologized at a news conference, with Harden adding, “We love China, we love playing there.”Nonetheless, the fallout from the tweet continues in China. On Wednesday, video spread on social media of an NBA banner being ripped off the side of a building in Shanghai.The NBA said that it was not its decision to call off Wednesday’s NBA Cares event with the Lakers, which was supposed to benefit the Special Olympics. On Tuesday, a separate NBA Cares event with the Brooklyn Nets at a school in Shanghai was also called off by the Chinese government. NBA commissioner Adam Silver said that they would still donate computers to the education center as planned, according to ESPN.In a statement announcing their decision to suspend plans to broadcast a series of NBA preseason games, China’s state-owned broadcasting network CCTV said it is “strongly dissatisfied and opposed” to Silver’s “claim to support Morey’s free expression of rights.”“We believe that any speech that challenges national sovereignty and social stability is not within the scope of freedom of speech,” the statement added. “To this end, CCTV Sports Channel of the Central Radio and Television General Administration decided to immediately suspend the current broadcast arrangements of the NBA preseason [China Games] and immediately investigate all cooperation and exchanges involving the NBA.”As the NBA is still reeling from the fallout, the world of esports was rocked by a separate scandal after a high-profile gamer from Hong Kong spoke out in support of the anti-government demonstrations in an interview — and then was abruptly banned from the competition.Ng Wai Chung, known by his gaming handle “Blitzchung,” was banned from the platform Blizzard, where he was competing in a Hearthstone tournament, after a post-game interview supporting protesters in Hong Kong. In a statement announcing his removal, Blizzard said they were banning Blitzchung for violating its competition rules by engaging in an act that “offends a portion or group of the public, or otherwise damages Blizzard image.”On Wednesday, #BoycottBlizard was trending on Twitter in the U.S. Chung has not publicly responded to the news, but his Twitter bio was updated to read that he was “banned” as a grandmaster and states: “Fight for Freedom. Stand with Hong Kong.”The move drew bipartisan criticism from lawmakers on Twitter.“Blizzard shows it is willing to humiliate itself to please the Chinese Communist Party,” Sen. Ron Wyden, D-Ore., said in a tweet. “No American company should censor calls for freedom to make a quick buck.”Sen. Marco Rubio, R-Fla., shared the Blizzard news on Twitter, writing, “Recognize what’s happening here. People who don’t live in #China must either self-censor or face dismissal & suspensions.”“China using access to market as leverage to crush free speech globally. Implications of this will be felt long after everyone in U.S. politics today is gone,” he added. Copyright © 2019, ABC Radio. All rights reserved. Written bycenter_img Beau Lundlast_img read more


Belvoir acquires Goodchilds

Posted On May 7 2021 by

first_imgBelvoir has completed the acquisition of West Midlands based Goodchilds Estate Agents and Lettings Ltd, taking the number of offices in its network to 211.Founded by David Warke in 2004, Goodchilds, which has 16 property sales and lettings branches located across the West Midlands, will now become part of Belvoir-owned Newton Fallowell group, under the leadership of Chief Executive, Mark Newton.Mark Newton said, “I am really looking forward to Goodchilds coming on board, and welcoming a further 16 offices to the Newton Fallowell network, which will bring the total to 46.“The balance of lettings and property sales within the Goodchilds network is currently 70 per cent lettings and 30 per cent estate agency. Newton Fallowell’s strength and expertise in estate agency will help to enhance the sales side of the business and the added support of Belvoir as a parent company will greatly benefit all aspects of business growth.”Aside from significantly increase the volume of offices in Belvoir’s network, the acquisition of Goodchilds has also boosted the number of properties managed by the firm to 35,000.“The acquisition represents a clear strategic fit with our acquisition strategy of building a network based on multi-brand franchises, which will increase market share and geographic coverage,” said Dorian Gonsalves (left), Belvoir’s Director of Commercial and Franchising.He added, “When Belvoir floated on the London Stock Exchange in 2012 we made a clear promise to our network and our investors that we would reach 200 offices before the end of 2016. The acquisition of Goodchilds just two months after the acquisition of Newton Fallowell now puts us well ahead of this target and with further acquisitions in the pipeline, we are looking forward to breaking new barriers in the future.”Meanwhile, MartinCo Plc, one of the UK’s largest property franchises, has rebranded as The Property Franchise Group.The decision to rebrand was taken by the Board of the parent company MartinCo Plc after two years of sharp growth and the expansion of its property brands from one to five – the Property Franchise Group consists of five estate agencies across England, Scotland and Wales: CJ Hole, Ellis & Co, Martin & Co, Parkers, and Whitegates – and a network of almost 300 offices.“We floated Martin & Co on the stock market and it became MartinCo Plc. But after we acquired the four brands of CJ Hole, Ellis & Co, Parkers and Whitegates we felt it made sense to use a trading name that better explains our business model, which is to be the dominant owner of multiple property franchise brands in the UK,” said CEO Ian Wilson (right).The parent company name will remain MartinCo Plc, according to Wilson, but he insisted that the firm wanted to offer “equal balance to all our brands.”Mr Wilson also revealed that the fast-growing business has set a goal of reaching a network of 500 offices by 2018, including organic growth and the acquisition of more brands.MartinCo rebranded acquisition Belvoir acquires Goodchilds The Property Franchise Group October 9, 2015The NegotiatorWhat’s your opinion?

Steel tycoon donates £3.5m to Oxford vaccine research

Posted On May 3 2021 by

first_imgProfessor Gavin Screaton, Head of Oxford’s Medical Sciences Division, said: “We are enormously grateful to Lakshmi Mittal and his family for their incredibly generous support at this critical moment. By securing the future of this pivotal leadership post, the University can continue to deliver and grow its world-leading vaccine research and focus on pandemic preparedness. In 2005, Forbes ranked Mittal as the third-richest person in the world. As of 2016, the Sunday Times Rich List estimated his net worth at around £7.12 billion. The University of Oxford has received a donation of £3.5 million from billionaire steel tycoon Lakshmi Mittal, to aid the development of a COVID-19 vaccine. The University of Oxford is leading the race for the development of a coronavirus vaccine, with large scale human trials taking place the UK, Brazil, and South Africa. Professor Adrian Hill is heading up this effort, and has previously stated he hoped that a vaccine would be viable for October. This is not the first time that Mittal has donated to medical pursuits. In 2008 the Mittals donated £15 million to the Great Ormond Street Hospital in London in order to partially fund the new Mittal Children’s Medical Centre. In 2014, ArcelorMittal was also a founding member of the Ebola Private Sector Mobilisation Group, which coordinated the private sector response to the Ebola outbreak in West Africa. This year, he made a donation of ₹100 crores to the PM CARES fund during the COVID-19 outbreak in India. “After a fascinating conversation with Professor Hill, my family and I concluded that the work he and his team are doing is not only extraordinary but essential, not just for this current crisis but for other challenges we may face in the future. The University of Oxford Development Office said: “Boosted by a further £1.75 million in matched funding from the University, the Mittal family’s gift has enabled the permanent endowment of the post. Not only will this allow Professor Hill to continue with his vital research, but will also help to ensure that Oxford remains at the forefront of vaccine development for generations to come.”center_img Commenting on the donation, Mittal said: “This year has been a wake-up call to the world to be better prepared for pandemics, which, as we have all experienced, can cause massive social and economic disruption. “The importance of dedicated and ongoing research in this field cannot be overestimated and we are delighted to be supporting this vaccinology professorship at Oxford.” Mittal, the CEO of the largest steel company in the world, ArcelorMittal, is making an endowment for the post of professor of vaccinology in the Oxford Jenner Institute. The post will be known as the Lakshmi Mittal and Family Professorship of Vaccinology, in recognition of this support. “The results of this work will have a significant impact on people’s lives around the world and will enable humanity to respond with even greater speed to the next global pandemic. The progress of Oxford’s vaccine candidate for COVID-19, which is currently in human trials, underlines the vital contribution that Oxford is currently making to this field.” Image credit to D Wellslast_img read more
