City Market to sell South End property to Petra Cliffs

first_imgVermont Business Magazine When City Market purchased just over 4.5 acres at 207 Flynn Avenue in Burlington’s South End, their plan was to subdivide the lot and work to sell the south parcel. The south parcel is 1.67 acres with an address of 75 Briggs Street. The Co-op started that process by issuing a Request for Proposals (RFP) last March, with a goal of closing on the property within one year of accepting a proposal.John Tashiro, City Market’s General Manager, said, “The Co-op is excited to announce that we have just signed a Purchase & Sales Agreement with Andrea and Steve Charest of Petra Cliffs Climbing Center & Mountaineering School for 75 Briggs Street.

Petra Cliffs is well-known and respected in the community and we welcome their move just down the street to become our (even closer) neighbor.”Andrea Charest of Petra Cliffs said, “We’ve had plans for growth for several years and looking forward to partnering with City Market to bring our plans to fruition. Our organizational goals are well aligned, we enjoy some of the same Members and we look forward to future collaborations with Co-op Members.”Several organizations submitted proposals in response to City Market’s RFP. Evaluation criteria included project alignment with City Market’s Global Ends; the project’s ability to fulfill a gap in services in the South End of Burlington; project compatibility with City Market’s neighboring retail operation; and, project compatibility with the surrounding neighborhood.

Meet John Fury, Tyson’s bare-knuckle fighter dad who went to prison for eye-gouging

first_img 10 INCREDIBLE Space Launch Failures! Travel Diary // Vietnam 2017 People Slammed By Massive Waves 4 Real or Fake? Shark Attacks Helicopter Top 5 Best Budget Hotels In Dubai under AED 400 a night. TYSON Fury’s rise to heavyweight boxing glory is largely down to one man – his father John.The 31-year-old boxer’s life featured in ITV’s warts-and-all documentary Tyson Fury: The Gypsy King,.Tyson’s dad John Fury was a boxer, going pro in bare-knuckle fightingJohn went to prison in 2011 after gouging another man’s eye outCredit: PA:Press AssociationHis Irish-born dad was a boxer too, fighting 13 professional bouts.He also fought bare-knuckle fighting and claims he won £100,000 in one bout.John Fury, 55, also served four years of an 11-year sentence for gouging a man’s eye out in a sickening attack.And such is John’s influence on his son, it is believed he is the reason why Tyson parted ways with long-term trainer Ben Davison.BORN TO BOXJust like Tyson, life began in the ring for John.He had very little choice. Born in Galway, it was a family tradition to enter the fight game.And he was good at it too.Standing at 6ft 3in tall, John fought 13 times as a professional boxer in the 1980s and 90s for a record of 8-4-1 at heavyweight.The fights I had were usually over within seconds. I weren’t an especially big puncher, but, once I got going, I’d not stop swinging until they were out coldJohn FuryHis one title fight ended up being a defeat against Yorkshire-born Neil Malpass in 1989.Journeyman Malpass pummelled John and won on points in a 10 round contest.John fought on four more times after that, retiring after losing his last fight against Steve Garber at the G-Mex Centre in Manchester in 1995.STREET FIGHTING MANBut he was also more than handy at bare-knuckle fighting.John, who later coached Tyson and his brother Love Island star Tommy, told the Daily Star: “In 1992, I fought the ­so-called ­champion at the time, an Irishman whose name I can’t even remember, over in Ireland.John Fury fought 13 times, winning eight fights during his boxing careerCredit: Rex FeaturesJohn Fury was ringside to see Tyson Fury become heavyweight champion of the worldCredit: Mark Robinson – The SunJohn believes he can be a mentor to son Tyson Fury now after his prison reformationCredit: Getty Images – Getty“With stakes and everything, I came up over a hundred grand.”“The fights I had were usually over within seconds.“I weren’t an especially big puncher, but, once I got going, I’d not stop swinging until they were out cold.“I’d not come up for air. I just wanted to kill. I’d hit them with fists, elbows, head, teeth and feet until they dropped and give best [surrendered].“If they didn’t, I’d kick their face off, it was up to them. Afterwards, shake hands and on to the next one.“In my twenties I was a really ­formidable force.”When he quit fighting he became Tyson’s trainer, steering him to the British title after just eight contests.Born in Galway, Ireland Johns family were travellers who foughtCredit: Rex FeaturesTommy Fury returned to the boxing ring after becoming a huge reality TV starCredit: Getty ImagesNAMED HIS SON AFTER MIKE TYSONWhen Tyson Fury was born back in 1988, Mike Tyson ruled supreme as undisputed heavyweight champion of the world.But the baby was three months premature and weighed just 1lb.Fury was given slim chances of survival by doctors, but proved he was a fighter from birth.Father John Fury explained on ITV’s documentary Tyson Fury – The Gypsy King: “He was just a pound in weight.“The doctor said he probably won’t make it, he’s very weak. “I said to all them doctors, he won’t be small, I said he’ll be nearly 7ft tall, 20 stone, the next heavyweight champion of the world.“I thought, ‘There’s only one name fitting for him, he’s fought hard to become a person living in this world.’“Mike Tyson was the best in the world at that time.“Tyson Luke Fury – that’s his name.”A TIME FOR REFLECTIONFighting got John in serious trouble in 2011.A  12-year grudge with Oathie Sykes boiled over and John tried to gouge his foe’s eye out in a fight at a car auction.John, the self-confessed ‘hardest man in Britain’, broke down in court as he plead for a lenient sentence.“I’m worried about my son. His boxing career is on the line,” he told the court.“If I could give my own eye to him to get back to my children I would do – I’m begging you for my life.”But Skyes offered a different testimony.“It was like he was trying to pull his finger into my brains through my socket,” he said.John Fury got in a row with Oathie Sykes, blinding his foeCredit: Rex FeaturesFury once called himself the hardest man in BritainCredit: Getty Images – GettyRELEASED WHEN HIS SON WAS CHAMPIn 2015, John was released from prison after serving four years of his sentence.Two months later, his family were celebrating Tyson becoming heavyweight champion of the world after his epic victory against Wladimir Klitschko in Germany.John was ringside, and he couldn’t have been prouder of his boy.Reformed John was also ready to be a calming influence on his son’s life.“Sometimes his mental state can carry him away but I can understand and help with that,” John told the BBC.“I’ve been very unlucky, but very lucky as well because my son has remained undefeated [during my time in prison] and come on in leaps and bounds.“But when I think he is going down the wrong way I can pull him up and tell him ‘we don’t need that’.”The Fury clan were happy to be reunited after John’s prison releaseCredit: Instagram @tommytntfuryNOT AFRAID TO SPEAK HIS MINDSince his release, John has become a media pundit for his son’s fights, primarily those in the US because he can’t get a visa to travel to the States due to his criminal record.“I’ve been a naughty boy and there is no point hiding it,” Fury admitted.“I’m not allowed in the country.”He’s appeared on BT Sport, and was critical of Tyson’s trainer Ben Davison after his son struggled to overcome Otto Wallin, surviving a nasty gash on his eye that required plastic surgery to fix.It was no coincidence that Davison was relieved of his duties after that fight.“I’ve never seen him as bad,” he told BT Sport.“He looked weight-drained, he looked like he’d left it all in the gym to be honest with you.”Not mincing his words, he added: “I’m being honest about it, he’s my son, I’m a straight talker, that’s the worst I’ve seen my son.John Fury often appears on BT Sport to talk about his son’s fightsIt is believed John Fury is the reason Tyson split with long-term trainer Ben DavisonCredit: Getty Images – Getty“But what I can say? I’m very proud of the way he mauled his way through it, he showed world class heart and he will come again.“He needs to go back to the drawing board and see what’s gone wrong here. And be honest to look in the mirror and say, ‘Things ain’t gone right.’“He needs to look where he’s gone wrong. I’ve half an idea, but that’s for my own.” center_img 8 MOST DANGEROUS RAINS of All Time | TOP 10 INTERESTING Source: Boxing – thesun.co.uk Rebekah Vardy scores an impressive penalty in six-inch heels What’s This “Trick” Called?

DVC Monthly Preview – June 2018

first_imgShare This!Welcome to the June installment of our monthly Disney Vacation Club preview. We’ve got news about the 2019 DVC member cruises and a booking reminder for the next Moonlight Magic events. Our DVC explainer this month is all about those member benefits we’re discussing. You can view last month’s preview here.Booking WindowsThis month, here are some booking window dates to keep in mind. For your home resort (11-month booking window), in June, you will be able to book for dates in May 2019. For all other DVC resorts (7-month booking window), this month you will be able to book for dates in January 2019. If you’re looking to book a room for marathon weekend Jan. 9-13, 2019, don’t delay. Availability gets scooped up quickly.For last-minute trips, Saratoga Springs and Old Key West have availability for their 1- and 2-bedroom villas for much of the month. And if you have the points available, the Bungalows at Disney’s Polynesian Villas and Bungalows have availability for most days June 10 and later at DVC’s last-minute resort availability page.DVC NewsDisney Vacation Club has announced two DVC Member Cruises for 2019, departing from each coast.Two DVC member cruises will be offered in 2019 ©Julia MascardoFrom May 15-20, 2019, a 5-night Pacific Coast cruise on the Disney Wonder will depart from San Diego, making stops in San Francisco and Victoria, British Columbia, disembarking in Vancouver. From Oct. 5-12, 2019, the Disney Magic will host the 7-night Bermuda cruise out of New York City with a port stop in Boston and a two-day visit in Bermuda before returning to New York.Member Services will begin taking reservations for both cruises on June 23. Full payment is required at the time of booking. DVC has waived both the $95 fee for using DVC points toward a cruise and the policy of requiring at least one passenger to sail using vacation points. You can use a combination of cash and vacation points for a room, but individual passengers must either be all cash or all vacation points.Registration is set to open for the next round of Moonlight Magic parties for DVC members on July 16 and Aug. 15 at Epcot. Members with resort reservations during the event can register online beginning Wednesday, June 6, at 9 a.m. Eastern time. Registration opens to all members on Wednesday, June 20, at 9 a.m. Eastern time.At the Disneyland Resort, a Father’s Day lunch will be offered from 12 to 2 p.m. June 17 in the Sequoia Ballroom at Disney’s Grand Californian Hotel & Spa. Pixar-themed games, activities, and characters will be part of the event. Prices are $53.95 per adult and $29.95 for children 3-9. Call Member Services to reserve your space.As part of the effort to promote Incredibles 2, DVC has launched the Incredible Family Vacation Sweepstakes. First prize is a 5-day, 4-night vacation in a 2-bedroom villa at Copper Creek Villas & Cabins with park tickets and round-trip flights for up to eight people. Go to incrediblevacationsweeps.com to enter by July 19.Last month, we mentioned no information had been released about any possible Toy Story Land previews for DVC members prior to the official June 30 opening at Disney’s Hollywood Studios. The follow-up is that it’s looking highly doubtful that there will be any previews, except perhaps for media and cast members, as work continues to finish construction.DVC Explainer – Member BenefitsMuch of what we discuss in our monthly preview can be placed under the category of member benefits. At its core, Disney Vacation Club is a timeshare with your real estate interest being represented by vacation points. The one guarantee to all members is the ability to use those points to book rooms at resorts that have been sold as Disney Vacation Club properties.Presenting a membership card is required for many of the DVC member benefits.As the years have gone on, additional member benefits have become part of the appeal of owning DVC. That appeal has prompted Disney Vacation Club to ratchet back the amount of benefits received by owners who buy resale, thus making direct purchases more appealing.So this month, we will briefly explain the benefits, then explain how benefits have changed for those who purchased DVC contracts resale and don’t have that blue membership card.Here is a rundown of the various categories of benefits for DVC members:Events/experiences – Events such as the Member Cruise and the Moonlight Magic nights fall under this category. DVC also offers smaller events for members, such as the weekly member nights at Splitsville Luxury Lanes in Disney Springs, fitness activities at Disney California Adventure, and exclusive culinary experiences at the resorts.Member-exclusive areas – The Top of The World Lounge in Disney’s Bay Lake Tower and the Member’s Lounge in Epcot’s Imagination Pavilion are two areas that require a blue membership card and ID to access.Top of the World Lounge at Bay Lake Tower Annual pass discounts, ticket offers – The value of this benefit has varied year to year, but in general, members have received discounted annual passes. Annual pass discounts are limited to those living in the household of the owner. In the past, DVC has also provided other theme park ticket offers, though they haven’t done that recently.Tour/party discounts – Members get discounts (typically 15 percent) for all kinds of tours, activities, and spa treatments. Members also get discounted tickets for select dates of the Halloween and Christmas parties.Dining/merchandise discounts – These can add up quickly while you’re on vacation. Many table service dining locations are discounted 10 percent, though you can find some select Epcot or Swan and Dolphin restaurants with discounts as high as 20 percent. The shopping discount at Walt Disney World owned and operated shops is currently 20 percent, though that could return to 10 percent in the future.Other Disney destinations – Members can use points for Disney Cruise Line, Adventures by Disney, and even non-DVC rooms at Disney resorts throughout the world. Though, as members will tell you, the value of using points for some of these options is debatable. Here is DVC’s information on booking the Disney Collection.Non-Disney destinations – Non-Disney resorts worldwide are available to book with points through the Concierge Collection and the World Collection through RCI exchanges. There are complicated rules for booking these destinations, including fees to book and use year limits. If you’re interested in learning more, here is DVC’s information on booking the Concierge Collection and the World Collection.Disney Files magazine – Comes in the mail to members four times a year.Printable lists of member benefits can be found here. I recommend printing them or saving them to your mobile device for quick reference while you’re on vacation.Now, here’s how benefits for resale owners have changed through the years:For resale purchasers after March 21, 2011: DVC points are no longer eligible for reservations in the Concierge Collection, the Disney Collection, or the Adventurer Collection. This includes Disney Cruise Line and Adventures By Disney. As we said earlier, the value of using points for some of these options was already questionable, so the change wasn’t considered a huge loss to resale buyers.For resale purchasers after April 4, 2016: Members who did not purchase points direct from Disney are no longer eligible for Membership Extras, such as exclusive experiences and discounts. This change had a much larger impact, affecting nearly all of the benefits we’ve outlined above. The workaround that some used was to purchase a small contract direct from Disney to get the benefits, then purchase the bulk of their points resale.For resale purchasers after February 25, 2018: The tiny direct purchase “workaround” brought the next change, which was the requirement of at least 75 points to be bought direct for the owner to enjoy full member benefits.So owners considering whether to buy direct or resale (or a combination of both) must weigh the value of member benefits into their decision. The complicating factor is that none of these benefits is guaranteed. As we mentioned at the outset, the only guaranteed benefit for any member is the continued ability to use your purchased points to book rooms for the length of your contract.Admittedly, there would be loud howls if some of these discounts and benefits were to be taken away. And it’s in DVC’s interest to keep members happy, as word of mouth is one of their best selling tools.Which member benefits do you use and consider most valuable? Which would upset you the most if they went away? And what benefits would you like to see added in the future? Let us know in the comments.last_img read more

Virtual Ticket: Media Player for Rock Band Websites

first_img12 Unique Gifts for the Hard-to-Shop-for People… Ultrastar is a music fan site management company,started by David Bowie in the late 90’s. They create and manage sites for a range of popmusic acts – such as The Red Hot Chili Peppers, The RollingStones, David Bowie, Sting, INXS and about 9other acts. They emailed me today to tell me about out a new product for all theirbands, a media player called the Virtual Ticket. Basically it’s a richmedia player that enables members of the fan sites to spread video clips to non-members.It’s also kind of like a lite social network system, in that it features chat andcommenting throughout.Virtual Ticket is being marketed as an “on-line tour companion” for bands/artists,because it gives extra media content and regular updates (e.g. band member video diariesor behind the scenes action) to people who buy their concert tickets. The aim is tocreate more of a relationship between the artist and their fans.The Who Virtual TicketA good example of Virtual Ticket in action is at The Who’s latest tour website, whereit has been labeled Squeezebox. Itfeatures videos of The Who playing, behind the scenes videos, setlists for each show,photosets, documentary videos, news stories, interviews… and much more. There is also achatroom and the whole site is basically a social network system for Who fans. While allof this kind of content has been available before on music band websites, the systembehind it (Virtual Ticket) is a turnkey solution for bands to provide all these featuresto fans. Related Posts Tags:#music#web 9 Books That Make Perfect Gifts for Industry Ex… Accessibility & UsabilityI did have some difficulty loading the site and logging in. I also sent it to a friendof mine in Auckland, who is one of The Who’s biggest fans, and he too had trouble loadingthe site. My friend, Dave, is exactly the kind of person The Who wants using this site –so it’s crucial Ultrastar ensures accessibility is sorted out. [Incidentally Dave wantedme to note that a it was lifetime dream of his to see The Who play in Sydney 2 years ago– similar to me seeing Lou Reed play live recently… but Idigress].Also I found there were some usability issues – e.g. when a video clip I watchedfinished, there didn’t seem to be any way to get back to the home screen. I ended upclosing the window and re-opening. Also some icons were not obvious, so I found myselfclicking them just to find out what they did. I’m sure these issues are beingaddressed.center_img 4 Keys to a Kid-Safe App How Virtual Ticket was developedAccording to the developers, the Virtual Ticket Media Player client was authored inActionScript 2 and Adobe Flash 8. Here are their goals for the site:“Among the main goals for the Virtual Ticket Media Player to achieve was the abilityto store and display highly relational content and data, of varying media types, in astraight-forward, user-friendly manner. Most importantly, the varying content types hadto be viewable simultaneously. That is, a user could be simultaneously watching a video,reading a news story, looking at photos, and conversing with other users in the chatroom.The navigation concept allows for this to happen, as it can display content in alinear fashion (User goes to the News section, chooses a news story, and is presentedwith the full story) as well as non-linear fashion (User views a tour date entry and ispresented with videos, photo sets, reviews found elsewhere within the Virtual TicketMedia Player, but are grouped with the specific tour date entry because of a relationalqualification). This requires that deep linking and runtime display is possible from anygiven view to any other piece of content within the application.”The video is streaming Flash and the reason given for this is “because of UltraStar’sobligations to protect their client/artists’ rights”. By which they mean there is nocaching and “therefore no footprint of any kind left on the user’s computer.” For thevideo techies out there, the video files are encoded with the high-quality On2 VP6 codecand are hosted on a distributed network (CDN) by NineSystems.The chatroom software is designed to be relatively open:“The Virtual Ticket Media Player Chat Room is written and operated under ExtensibleMessaging and Presence Protocol (XMPP) standards. This means that other users will beable to use their existing messaging software (Trillian, GTalk, etc…) to connect,authenticate, and log in to the Artist’s chatroom. Currently, the built-in Virtual TicketMedia Player chat interface is the only public way to enter the Artist’s chatroom thoughsupport for other clients is planned.”Viral marketingPerhaps the defining feature in Virtual Ticket is that “every piece of content” inUltraStar’s Virtual Ticket Media Player has a viral marketing component. An examplegiven was the “Send-To-Friend” capability, which allows users to send apersonalized message and a link to any content entry (video, photos, etc) to afriend.Also the Media Player aims to encourage dialogue and user-participation, withcommenting and integrated chat built in. Users can leave comments on “any and all contentfound in the Media Player.”SummaryCurrently The Who Squeezebox is the only live example of Virtual Ticket, but comingsoon is a Rolling Stones Virtual Ticket. Both these examples use the same Virtual TicketMedia Player file, but have a different color scheme and content database.As a big music fan, I love seeing this kind of web technology applied to musicwebsites. I think once Ultrastar has addressed the technical and usability issues (andremember this is still a young product), they will find a ready and willing audience fortheir Virtual Tickets! 5 Outdoor Activities for Beating Office Burnout richard macmanuslast_img read more

Gotti: ‘Udinese will get a new coach’

first_img Watch Serie A live in the UK on Premier Sports for just £11.99 per month including live LaLiga, Eredivisie, Scottish Cup Football and more. Visit: https://subscribe.premiersports.tv/ Udinese won on his debut, but caretaker manager Luca Gotti continues to assure “there will be a different coach” in charge after the SPAL game. It kicks off at 14.00 GMT, click here for a match preview. Igor Tudor was fired and assistant Gotti given the reins while the club tries to find a suitable long-term replacement, but Gotti made a sensational debut, winning 3-1 away to Genoa. “I have already clarified my position and expect that there will be a different coach on the Udinese bench when we face Sampdoria after the break for international duty,” said Gotti in a press conference. “I don’t know the schedule that the club has in mind, but I can only speak about my position. Good sense indicates the break would give any newcomer enough time to settle in and see what he’s dealing with. “As for right now, the attitude is more important than the tactics or even our position in the table right now. The priority is to create a strong mental approach that everyone can share. “There has been a turnaround in our fortunes, but it wasn’t long ago it was all doom and gloom, so let’s not kid ourselves that everything has been resolved.” This afternoon is a pure relegation dogfight, as Udinese take on bottom of the table SPAL. “I expect it to be a tough, physical, masculine game of football, where the details and individual incidents make the difference.”last_img read more
