Mike Tyson’s former Maryland home hits the market for $8.5M

first_imgA Maryland home formerly owned by Mike Tyson and ex-wife Monica Turner is on the market for $8.5M. The home overlooks the Congressional Country Club, which has hosted U.S. Open golf tournaments. (Getty; Google)A Maryland home once owned by boxing great Mike Tyson is on the market for $8.5 million.Tyson and his former wife, Dr. Monica Turner, bought the home in the mid-1990s and lived there for several years before divorcing in 2003 — the same year Tyson filed for bankruptcy. Turner kept the home, which is about 30 minutes outside Washington, D.C., according to the Wall Street Journal.Turner has expanded the main house over the years and it now spans 19,000 square feet. It includes a gym, pool, sports court, media room and piano room. A massive closet in the spacious master bedroom suite features a dry cleaner–style conveyor belt for clothes.Turner, a pediatrician who had a son and daughter with the former heavyweight champion, also added an adjacent lot to the property. The grounds overlook the Congressional Country Club. Turner said she’s selling the home because her youngest child has graduated from college and the house is too big for her.Around the time the two divorced, Tyson — who had burned through his more than $300 million in career prize money — sold an even larger Connecticut estate to rapper 50 Cent for $4.1 million. The rapper sold the property last year for $2.9 million after it had spent more than a decade on the market. [WSJ]last_img read more

Fire Island beach house designed by Paul Rudolph hits market

first_imgThe Water Island home on Atlantic Ocean Walk (Photos via Vinnie Petrarca Real Estate)A quirky Fire Island beach house designed by architect Paul Rudolph recently hit the market for $4 million.The Water Island home on Atlantic Ocean Walk was built in the 1960s and has three bedrooms and four bathrooms, according to Dwell, which first reported on the listing. Those familiar with Rudolph’s Manhattan buildings — which include the Modulighter building on East 58th Street, Halston’s former Lenox Hill home and a modernist townhouse on Beekman Place — will recognize some of the architect’s signature flourishes in the Long Island home. Those include large windows and a boxy balcony affixed to the home’s exterior. The property itself has a pool and a tiered garden, along with a separate guest house on site.Paul Rudolph (Photo via Wikipedia Commons)Earlier this year, another Rudolph home in Larchmont, New York, was listed for $5.6 million. It’s since gotten a price cut and is now asking $4.65 million.The Water Island home is listed with Vinnie Petrarca of Fire Island Real Estate.

EU to push China for key trade concessions

first_imgYongtu’s two-day meeting with trade experts, which starts next Monday (24 January), will coincide with a visit by Chinese Vice Premier Wu Bangguo on Tuesday (25 January) for wider-ranging talks on economic cooperation.Long’s visit is seen as a reassuring sign that China remains committed to joining the WTO’s rules-based system despite continuing domestic fears that it will mean increased competition for national enterprises. Concern that Beijing was losing interest in the WTO grew late last year after Chinese negotiators failed to give a quick response to the EU’s market-opening demands, which were handed over to Chinese Foreign Trade Minister Shi Guangsheng by Trade Commissioner Pascal Lamy at the ill-fated WTO meeting in Seattle in December.China’s silence prompted Lamy to delay a planned visit to Beijing to attend a summit with Chinese Prime Minister Zhu Rongji on 21 December, leaving Commission President Romano Prodi and External Trade Commissioner Chris Patten to make the trip without him. Long should not, however, expect an easy ride at next week’s talks, not least because, with the prospects of a new global-trade round looking bleak post-Seattle, the pressure to get China into the WTO by a certain deadline has eased.In addition, while the EU remains firmly convinced that Chinese membership of the WTO is important to underpin economic reform, Commission officials are adamant that they will not be pushed into accepting an unsatisfactory deal. “We are in no rush to complete an agreement with China,” Patten said recently, adding that the Union was determined not to “sacrifice substance for speed”.Trade officials add that while progress is expected in talks between Long and Commission Director General Hans-Friedrich Beseler, they are not looking to “finalise negotiations” at this stage. They say all the two sides have done for months is “exchange negotiating positions” and there has been no “substantive” discussion. As a result, the talks now getting under way could run for weeks, if not months.The EU has submitted a list of demands which goes beyond the market-opening measures included in the US-China agreement signed last November.Responding to the needs of European exporters, the Commission wants a lowering of Chinese tariffs in areas such as textiles, ceramics and spirits. In the services sector, it has called on China to allow foreign life insurance companies to take a 100% stake in joint ventures instead of the 50% secured by the US in its deal.In mobile telephony, where European companies are top global players, the Union is also asking for full equity participation in companies. China may be in more of a hurry to clinch a WTO deal with the EU, believing that this would make it easier to persuade a currently reluctant US Congress to support Beijing’s membership bid. But the Commission is unlikely to let such concerns influence its strategy.last_img read more

ENERGY – Calls for intervention spurned by Commission

first_imgBut the Commission has said that it does not fall within its jurisdiction.This requires that two-thirds of a company’s earnings should be made outside of its domicile for the EU to intervene.More than half of E.on’s earnings come from abroad but this proportion does not reach the EU threshold.Last year Ruhrgas bought UK utility PowerGen, a deal analysts believe would have been quashed by the EU if the E.on deal could have been foreseen. The German economics ministry claimed that a German energy champion was necessary for ‘security of supply’.The ministry also recommended that the new company increase its investments in Russia and is dismissing protests from consumer groups, traders and other utilities that it will strangle energy market liberalisation.The German economics ministry is due to hold a hearing on the merger today (5 September) where all interested parties are invited to contribute. The deal was first blocked in January this year by the German cartel office (Bundeskartelamt) because of its effects on competition.Germany’s Monopoly Commission also banned the deal but the economics ministry over-ruled both.Subsequently two traders, Aachen-based Trianel and Hamburg-based Ampere, together with power distributors Stadtwerke Aachen and Stadtwerke Rosenheim, challenged the deal in the Dusseldorf court – which ruled the EU competition authorities should have examined the deal.last_img read more

Kyle Busch and Kyle Larson at Bristol: a moment for mutual respect

first_imgAfter Kyle Busch swept the weekend at Bristol Motor Speedway, capturing wins in all three of NASCAR’s national series, that other really fast Kyle — Kyle Larson — tweeted respect for his elder and competitor. So the question that Kelly Crandall and Kathy Sheldon are exploring on NASCAR.com today: Is Kyle Busch the GOAT?Sheldon: Greatest at Bristol? Yes, and six wins, the most of any Monster Energy NASCAR Cup Series driver, prove it. This past weekend? Absolutely. All time? We’ll see. If anyone currently active can catch seven wins, I’d say Kyle Busch and Kyle Larson are the best candidates.Crandall: Larson’s goat emoji was a nice touch and Busch seemed appreciative to hear in his post-race press conference it had been included. But the greatest of all-time in NASCAR is not yet a discussion Busch or Larson is in, although performances like Bristol will certainly help Busch one day in that department. If this was a question of whether or not Busch is the GOAT when it comes to the top three national series, there’s no argument he has set himself apart from the competition. One can only wonder, though, what the sport would be like if Larson ran as many races as Busch does …Sheldon: Good point, Kelly. I don’t think anyone is as sure a bet in a Camping World Truck Series event or XFINITY Series event as Busch. And he’s helping the sport grow the next generation of drivers, as well, through Kyle Busch Motorsports. Wouldn’t it be great to see Busch in a sprint car so he and Larson could do battle on dirt?So let’s talk greatest of this season. Both Larson and Busch are in the playoffs, with Busch holding a slight, 2-point edge on Larson in playoff points coming out of Bristol. They’re both chasing Martin Truex Jr., whom I picked back in February to win the title this year. I still like that pick, but Busch seems like a better bet to knock off Truex in the playoffs among the pair of Kyles — a former champ in 2015 and runner-up in 2016 who is peaking at the right time.Crandall: Just a few weeks ago I felt Larson was as sure a bet to be in the final four as Truex is. Then Busch won Pocono — to go along with his gazillion laps he’s led — and he’s also been knocking off stage wins left and right. Suddenly, the No. 18 team has come alive while the Chip Ganassi Racing No. 42 team is simmering. Good news for Busch, bad news for Larson.Now, we all know once the playoffs start teams and drivers usually pick it up a notch, but Busch’s team looks really, really good right now. And I imagine they are only going to keep getting better as the weeks go on. However, the possibility of Larson making it to Homestead to battle Busch, as well as Truex and whomever the fourth contender may be, is hard not be excited about.last_img read more

Metallica Hilariously Censored By Twitch During BlizzCon Livestream [Watch]

first_imgThe pandemic has forced artists from across the globe to adapt to a new medium of livestream performances. While this is far from ideal for many performers who feed off the energy of a live audience, many have made do. Some, however, have acclimated better than others and it appears that Metallica falls into the “others” category.During a livestream for this year’s BlizzCon—an annual convention organized by Blizzard Entertainment, the company behind video games like World Of Warcraft and Diablo, which was forced online this year—the metal pioneers ran into a bit of technical difficulty. As they pounded out the opening notes of the Ride The Lightning staple “For Whom The Bell Tolls”, Metallica had their sound cut off on Twitch and replaced with music that, let’s say, lacked the same adrenaline-soaked energy of heavy metal.Related: Les Claypool Shares ‘Precious Metals’ Short Film With Metallica’s Robert Trujillo [Watch]As many artists have come to realize over the pandemic, sites like YouTube and Twitch have certain built-in censors that activate to prevent copyright infringement. Oftentimes when somebody covers an artist, the stream will get shut down by YouTube or Facebook altogether. Rather than taking down the stream, however, Twitch went a different route and overdubbed the band’s music with the kind of light, ambient music that could be found in the background of Legend Of Zelda, rather than in Metallica’s rehearsal studio.The irony here, of course, is that this technological faux pas was a direct result of the Digital Millenium Copyright Act (DMCA). This 1998 copyright law came into effect in no small part thanks to Metallica, and memorably drummer Lars Ulrich‘s, public crusade against internet hosting site Napster at the tail end of the 90s as MP3s became commonplace in the United States. Now, it appears that the champions of intellectual property protections have fallen victim to the same archaic policies which they helped implement.Watch Metallica’s performance of “For Whom The Bell Tolls” from BlizzCon’s Twitch stream quickly go awry.Twitch Is Afraid Of Getting DMCA’d On Their Platform -Cuts Off Metallica..[Video: ghecco’s twitch clips][H/T A.V.

Group plans unifying projects

first_imgWhile students ease back into a routine of classes, studying and meetings as the semester gets underway, the Student Government Association (SGA) is preparing for the busy weeks ahead. Senior student body vice president Meghan Casey said the upcoming weeks are full of various events and programs for the campus. She named Love Your Body Week, Heritage Week and Women Honoring Women Week as SGA’s larger events. “We are most looking forward to Heritage week because it gives us a chance to appreciate the opportunities we have at Saint Mary’s and learn about the heritage of the College and what past students have done while they were here,” she said. In addition to celebrating the rich tradition of the College, Heritage Week will also allow students, alumnae, parents and friends of Saint Mary’s to contribute to the Capital Campaign. “The Capital Campaign is a project to raise money for various things at the Saint Mary’s,” Casey said. “This year Heritage Week is coinciding with the [start of the] Capital Campaign. They are raising money to renovate Angela, for scholarships and to renovate the science building.” Casey said having the Capital Campaign and Heritage Week at the same time will be beneficial for both the students and the College. “We are having the Capital Campaign launch and Heritage Week the same week because the launch is raising money for the future,” she said. “During Heritage Week, we learn about people who have invested in Saint Mary’s in the past and the Capital Campaign is a way for us to invest for the future.” In addition to Heritage Week and raising funds for the College, SGA will also focus on anti-bullying initiatives throughout the semester to foster positive attitudes amongst students. Senior student body president Maureen Parsons said this initiative resulted from students who were harassed through letters. “(SGA) is going to start a Tumblr that encourages positive messages to students,” she said. “Also, we want to work with the Resident Advisors to do something in the dorms with random acts of kindness.” Parsons said SGA is currently scheduling a speaker to discuss the issues and discuss the effects of bullying on campus. Another important issue SGA hopes to address is the continual use of the Belle Tower, a new online network which includes the all-school events calendar and online club information. Students were encouraged to sign up and become active on the network last semester, but SGA is striving to gather more student participation and familiarity with the new technology. “We want to promote the Belle Tower and make sure students are going there for information about events and organizations at Saint Mary’s,” Casey said. “We are hoping with promotion of the Belle Tower and with other advertising, people will go to more events on campus.” Although student government elections are still months away, Casey said she and Parsons are already planning for new leaders and figuring out how to ensure a successful transition for new student leaders. “Our main goal would be making sure there is a smooth transition for turnover [when the new leaders assume their positions],” Casey said. “We want to make sure that the new members of SGA feel prepared for next year.” The elections for student body president and vice president will occur at the end of February. The Residence Hall Association, Student Activities Board, Student Diversity Board and the Class Boards will elect new leaders the first week of March. Turnover is scheduled for April 1.last_img read more
