Purplebricks territory owner moves over to fledgling rival with national ambitions

first_imgFledgling online lettings platform Accommodation.co.uk has revealed its first franchisees including one who turns out to be a former Purplebricks LPE.Joe Grundy is to be the agency’s representative in Stockport where the company has recently moved its headquarters.Until joining Accommodation.co.uk he had been a Purplebricks territory owner in Manchester for over three years.Grundy is the fifth franchisee to join the platform following similar announcement in Sheffield, Leeds, Lincoln and Canterbury.Founder Aaron Short (left) claims the company will be announcing three new franchisees every month from October onwards ‘due to huge demand’.Grundy has 12 years’ experience within the hybrid and high street lettings industry including stints at local agencies Maurice Kilbride and Sequence. He began his career working alongside his mother when he was a teenager.“I instantly loved the fast pace of lettings and thrived off of building relationships with landlords and managing their portfolios,” he has told a local business website..“A property will be typically let out every six to 12 months, so creating lasting connections with landlords is really important.“I decided to partner with Accommodation.co.uk because the company is revolutionising the renting experience, and has taken a business model that I’m familiar with and has made it even better.”Accommodation.co.uk soft-launched in May 2018 but then delayed its full launch after Short decided and its other directors to take a ‘hybrid’ approach via a franchising model. At the time it told The Negotiator it would be charging agents £995 to join and £100 a month thereafter.Joe Grundy maurice kilbride accommodation.co.uk Sequence September 5, 2019Nigel LewisWhat’s your opinion?

Natural Gas Bills Expected To Be 3 To 5% Lower

first_img Natural Gas Bills Expected To Be 3 To 5% Lower When Comparing To Last Winter; Bills To Remain Affordable Evansville – Vectren Energy Delivery of Indiana – South (Vectren), a CenterPoint Energy company, announced today customers should expect a decrease of 3 to 5 percent in their natural gas bills when compared to those of last winter, assuming normal winter weather year-over-year. Low and stable natural gas prices continue to help customers’ bill amounts remain affordable.Last winter’s weather was normal, which caused bills to be right around the projection. This year, based upon expected natural gas commodity costs and normal winter weather, customers can expect to pay $360 to $370 over the 5-month heating season of November through March based on the average household consumption of approximately 525 therms. By comparison, last year’s average bill amount for the 5-month period had weather been normal, would have been around $380.“While we experienced colder-than-normal temperatures late in the winter season, overall last winter brought fairly normal weather to our area. In the event we experience normal winter weather this heating season, coupled with stable gas prices, customers should see a decrease in their bills,” said Richard Leger, vice president of Natural Gas Distribution, Indiana and Ohio.The Energy Information Administration continues to recognize natural gas as the most affordable heating source, according to a report issued today. In fact, Vectren gas customers who heated their homes with natural gas last year saved up to $740 compared to those who heat with propane.It is important to remember bills will vary by customer depending on the size and age of the home, the number of gas appliances, number in the household, thermostat settings, and levels of insulation. Customers are encouraged to still implement energy efficiency measures and find ways to use less natural gas to lower bills even further.Vectren has in place a number of tools to help customers manage their energy bills.Energy efficiency resources – Vectren offers appliance rebates and energy-saving tools to help customers lower their natural gas bills. All Indiana residential and small commercial natural gas customers are eligible. Visit www.vectren.com or call 1-866-240-8476 for a list of rebates, qualifying appliances and energy efficiency tips.Budget Bill: Under this billing plan, a customer’s estimated costs for a year of gas service are spread in equal monthly bill amounts for the year. This leveling of monthly bill amounts reduces the need to pay the full amount in the winter and spreads some of those higher bill charges into the non-heating months. Amounts are adjusted each summer for actual costs, and the customer’s credit or amount due rolls into the next Budget Bill payment for the next 12-month period. A mid-winter recalculation may occur for some customers if gas costs significantly change during the heating season. Customers can enroll for free at www.vectren.com or by calling 1-800-227-1376.   Energy Assistance Program (EAP):  State and federal utility assistance dollars are available for income-eligible customers. Those that fall within 60 percent of state median income should visit their local community action agency to sign up for the EAP. To apply for the EAP, customers should call 1-800-872-0371 to locate their nearest community action agency. Community action agencies will begin taking applications for all energy assistance programs on Nov.Universal Service Program (USP): All eligible natural gas heating customers who apply and qualify for EAP will automatically be enrolled in the Universal Service Program (USP), which provides additional gas bill reductions that range from 15 to 32 percent of the total bill received (not including EAP benefits) in the months of December through May. The USP, which has been in place since 2005 is the result of a collaborative effort by Vectren, Citizens Energy Group, the Indiana Office of Utility Consumer Counselor, Citizens Action Coalition and a group representing industrial customers. The program provides about $1.5 million in assistance each year to roughly 18,000 Vectren Indiana customers, including crisis assistance dollars, which target qualified low-income and working-poor households that need additional help to get reconnected and/or maintain heat throughout the upcoming winter.Share the Warmth:  Those wanting to help the less fortunate with their energy bills can contribute to Share the Warmth, a nonprofit organization that assists income-eligible customers with home weatherization services. Each year, Vectren matches all public donations, up to an annual total of $225,000. Donations may be tax-deductible and can be sent to Share the Warmth, P.O. Box 931, Evansville, IN 47706-0931 or visit www.sharethewarmthinc.com. Customers who pay their bills atVectren.com may donate through a bill round-up feature. In 2018, more than 130,000 customers across all Vectren territories used this feature to direct donations to Share the Warmth.  This option contributed nearly $133,000, which was matched by Vectren.“If customers are experiencing financial hardship and get behind on payments or are in need of financial assistance, there are several options to help manage costs and we encourage them to make contact,” said Leger. “Local community action agencies can further provide assistance and customers should call today and apply for financial and/or home weatherization assistance if needed.”Vectren utilities are not allowed to markup, nor profit, from the purchase and sale of natural gas. Only gas costs actually incurred and approved by the Indiana Utility Regulatory Commission are recovered from customers.Natural gas is a commodity bought and sold in a national deregulated market and prices fluctuate daily due to supply and demand pressures. Vectren purchases natural gas on behalf of its customers and then passes those costs on to customers through the gas cost adjustment, which is listed on the Vectren bill as “Gas Cost Charge.”Vectren South delivers natural gas to approximately 110,000 customers in Daviess, Gibson, Knox, Martin, Pike, Posey, Spencer, Vanderburgh and Warrick counties. About CenterPoint EnergyHeadquartered in Houston, Texas, CenterPoint Energy, Inc. is an energy delivery company with regulated utility businesses in eight states and a competitive energy business footprint in nearly 40 states. Through its electric transmission & distribution, power generation and natural gas distribution businesses, the company serves more than 7 million metered customers in Arkansas, Indiana, Louisiana, Minnesota, Mississippi, Ohio, Oklahoma, and Texas.

Professor Marvin Zelen remembered as ‘magnificent human being’

first_imgSeveral hundred colleagues, family, and friends from as far away as Israel and Japan gathered together on May 22 at the Joseph B. Martin Conference Center in Boston’s Longwood Medical Area to attend a memorial service and award presentation celebrating the life of esteemed Professor Marvin Zelen and the lasting impact he made at Harvard T.H. Chan School of Public Health, the field of statistical science, and the world of public health.Zelen, a driving force behind both the Harvard Chan Department of Biostatistics and the Department of Biostatistics and Computational Biology at Dana-Farber Cancer Institute (DFCI), died on November 15, 2014, at age 87 after battling cancer. Known as a giant in the field of biostatistics, Zelen was a man of vision, generosity, and warmth who served as a mentor to two generations of researchers. He was Lemuel Shattuck Research Professor of Statistical Science at the School, and a member of the Faculty of Arts and Sciences (Emeritus) at Harvard University. He chaired the School’s Department of Biostatistics from 1981-1990. He helped create (and chaired through 1999) DFCI’s Department of Biostatistics and Computational Biology.“Marvin is called the ‘father of biostatistics’ by many leaders in the field and by the younger generation in the field of biostatistics,” said Xihong Lin, Henry Pickering Walcott Professor of Biostatistics and Chair, Department of Biostatistics. “His leadership was not about himself—he always was thinking about how to help others.” Read Full Storylast_img read more

A ‘new phase’ of global terrorism

first_img Terror threat on mind of Italian PM Related European response should blend force and politics, Renzi says during Harvard talk “It’s crucial in the current phase we’re in, we build bridges to the Muslim communities in this country and not vilify them and drive them into the margins of our society.”Part of protecting the country involves the thorny issue of immigration. Johnson, who is named in United States v. Texas, a controversial and significant immigration case that goes before the U.S. Supreme Court next month, said immigration is the hardest issue he’s had to confront in government, more complicated than U.S. policies on drone strikes, Guantanamo Bay, and the end of the military’s “Don’t Ask, Don’t Tell” policy on gays in the military.But despite the hardships experienced by foreign nationals, maintaining border security is crucial, and he said those who have crossed illegally must be returned once their legal remedies have been exhausted because, “We can’t have open borders.”Asked whether the American public’s perception of the threat of terrorism matches the reality and whether President Obama shares a sufficiently sober view of that threat, an idea raised in a provocative new interview in The Atlantic, Johnson said it’s the job of the president and Homeland Security to soothe public anxiety while ensuring that effective safeguards are in place.“People understand that in a free and open society — where we celebrate freedom to travel, freedom to associate, [and] privacy — that you cannot eliminate and erase all risk,” he told Graham Allison, the Belfer Center director and the Douglas Dillon Professor of Government at HKS. “But it’s incumbent upon us to keep telling the American public all the things we are doing to reduce, if not eliminate, that risk.”Indeed, the recent dispute between Apple and the FBI over phone encryption underscores the need for a “recalibration” between privacy and national security concerns and where the line should be drawn, Johnson said to Juliette Kayyem, a Belfer Center lecturer and a former assistant secretary at the Department of Homeland Security.“I’m not smart enough to know the solution myself, [but] I do know that if we brought together stakeholders from the tech sector, from privacy/civil liberties communities, from the intelligence community, the law enforcement community, the national security community…we could figure this out,” he said. “And I think we will — eventually.” We are in a “new phase” of global terrorism in which attacks against the United States are now being planned and executed by people living here, so it is essential that the federal government ask local Muslim communities to help counter the appeal of violent extremist messages, said U.S. Secretary of Homeland Security Jeh C. Johnson during an address Monday evening at the Harvard Kennedy School (HKS), just hours before terrorists with ties to the Islamic State killed dozens in Brussels.While a new pilot effort to do just that is underway in many cities, including Boston, much more work needs to be done to better engage and understand local Muslim communities, in order to undo the distrust felt by some toward the federal government, he said during a pitch to students on the value of public service and the many opportunities across the agency that are available to them.Johnson’s call for bridge-building came just as some presidential candidates stepped up rhetoric urging the government to take action to regulate Muslims.On Tuesday, Sen. Ted Cruz (R-Texas) called for law enforcement “to patrol and secure Muslim neighborhoods before they become radicalized.” Businessman Donald Trump has demanded that Muslims be banned from entering the country, a move Johnson criticized “because not only is it wrong, it is contrary to our Homeland Security interest for this suggestion to gain any kind of traction and courtesy,” he said.last_img read more

Maximizing Growth with the Enterprise Preferred Channel Program

first_imgWe’re heading into the second half of the year with fierce momentum. The Dell Technologies Global Channel is a $43 billion business, accounting for over half of the Dell Technologies’ annual revenue. Thanks to the incredible support of our partners, Dell Technologies continues to achieve immense success, expanding our leadership footprint in the storage, data protection, server, and hyper-converged infrastructure markets, among others. And while this sounds great, as Michael says, we’re ‘pleased, but not satisfied.’ We know there are still opportunities ahead of us and that we still have work to do.Our partners have told us they want more predictability in engagements; more front end margins so their sellers can retire quota more quickly; and more speed and simplicity around quotes and deal registration. We took this feedback to heart and are empowering Dell EMC partners to attack the market.Enterprise Preferred Channel ProgramWhen partners and Dell Technologies sales work together, we’re absolutely unstoppable. We call this the “Art of the AND.” In collaboration with Bill Scannell and our colleagues in Dell EMC’s Enterprise sales organization, this week we announced the Enterprise Preferred Channel Program. We’re leveraging joint sales and partner planning to drive one joint approach to market, simplifying our sales engagement and being prescriptive about how our sales teams and partners should work together.Today we see phenomenal results in our top 1,000 Enterprise accounts. Nothing changes here as these accounts are well-covered. The next tier, which we call “Enterprise Preferred,” is full of opportunity. In these Enterprise Preferred accounts, we will bring in trusted partners with relationships and technical expertise to maximize sales coverage through a channel-led model – specifically in driving solutions across the datacenter. In other words, we want partners to drive, be aggressive, and find that new business.So how does the enterprise preferred channel program help all of us grow our businesses?Let’s start with expanded coverage. We’re investing in dedicated channel team members that will support sales engagement in Enterprise Preferred accounts. This is a win for all of us.Next, we’ll collaborate on joint account plans, leveraging our strategic partner relationships. This provides clarity to everyone involved, helps us focus our efforts in the right places, and creates a smooth, positive experience for the customer.We’ll offer more competitive pricing. For eligible Storage opportunities in relevant accounts, we will offer a new “acquisition” Deal Registration with an incremental discount tied to it. This gives partners the greater front-end margin they asked for.We’re investing in a compensation uplift for the Dell EMC sales teams to protect their commission on these accounts, even with the more aggressive front-end discounts. This means our Enterprise Preferred sellers will be incented to work closely and scale with our partners.And finally, we’re offering more formal protection for partners through an earned partner of record model, available in certain whitespace accounts within the Enterprise Preferred segment for either Storage or across our Infrastructure Solutions (ISG) lines of business (Storage, Server, and Networking). For our partners who earn partner of record status for all of ISG, this means they will truly own the datacenter in that account.As our partner community knows well, we have a three word mission statement to make our program work for them – Simple. Predictable. Profitable.™ That’s precisely what this announcement is about, and just one of the ways that we’re delivering on our partners’ feedback.While we’re only talking about Enterprise today, we are exploring the possibility of aligning these programs to the Commercial segment later this year. Stay tuned for more information as those plans are solidified.Harnessing our full salesforce to solve customers’ challengesWe believe this approach will give us opportunities across the board, but this is particularly true when it comes to customers looking to solve storage issues. We have all the ingredients available for customers to effectively deploy and derive greater value from their storage solutions – an extraordinary channel storage business, remarkable direct sales expertise, and industry-leading solutions. These strengths, coupled with our collaborative channel and sales go-to-market strategy, mean we’re well equipped help companies through their digital, IT, workforce and security transformations.We’re excited about this program – this is big! Alongside our Enterprise organization, we are fully committed to helping our partners win new business in this Enterprise Preferred segment as well as helping modernize customer datacenters.This is ONE approach to the market – we’re in it together!To learn more, please visit the Dell EMC Partner Portal.last_img read more

ROTC units host vigil to honor veterans

first_imgChris Collins | The Observer In observance of Veteran’s Day, the Notre Dame ROTC units stood vigil for 24 hours at the Clarke Memorial Fountain, known popularly as “Stonehenge,” to honor the men and women who have served.The celebration of Veteran’s Day began at 5 p.m. on Nov. 10, when a 24-hour vigil at the Clarke Memorial Fountain, known by students as “Stonehenge,” began. According to a University press release, cadets and midshipmen from all three ROTC units stood guard at the four corners of the fountain during the vigil. This 24-hour vigil is a traditional event that Notre Dame ROTC units hold each year, according to the release.The vigil concluded with a ceremony on the quad on Nov. 11, exactly 24-hours after the guarding of the memorial began. Cadets and midshipmen filled the quad, standing in rank to show respect for all the living and deceased men and women who served before them.The ceremony began with the introduction of the official party, which included Fr. Pete McCormick, director of Campus Ministry; James Wagenbach, former U.S. solider and Vietnam veteran; Lt. Col. Christopher Pratt, commanding officer of Notre Dame Army ROTC and professor of military science; Cmrd. Frederick Landau, executive officer of Notre Dame Naval ROTC and professor of naval science; and Col. Frank Rossi, commanding officer of Notre Dame Air Force ROTC and professor of aerospace studies.The introduction was followed by a playing of the national anthem, a prayer led by McCormick and a brief history of Veteran’s Day.“By guarding the memorial, we are showing reverence and respect for the veterans and the fallen heroes,” Cadet Maj. Robert Szabo said. “We are remembering what those men did in those wars.”All cadets and midshipman who guarded the memorial were honored during the ceremony.“The 24-hour vigil they just completed is not only a tribute to veterans, but a testament to [the cadets’ and midshipmen’s] commitment, strength and character,” Col. Pratt said in a speech during the ceremony. “Although most have yet to serve, they represent the best and the brightest of our country. They chose a path of service to this great nation that less than one half of 1 percent choose these days.”Pratt then introduced Wagenbach, the keynote speaker. In his introduction, Pratt noted that Wagenbach was both a Notre Dame alum and veteran. According to Pratt, Wagenbach served as a recon platoon leader and armored cavalry troop commander in Vietnam. He was medically discharged for wounds received in combat and decorated with a Silver Star Medal, the third highest military decoration for valor, awarded for gallantry and action against the enemy.Wagenbach spoke about a Notre Dame very different than the one students know today. In his speech, Wagenbach said during his time at Notre Dame in the 1960s, there were 6,000 total undergraduate students, 4,000 of which participated in ROTC.“James Wagenbach is both an American treasure and hero, and we are honored to have him with us,” Pratt said.The ceremony concluded as veterans in attendance were asked to stand and be recognized. Finally, taps was played to honor those veterans who passed.“To honor the men and women who have served is of the utmost importance,” Szabo said. “Holding a 24-hour vigil for Veteran’s Day, culminating in the ceremony on the quad, is a great way to show the importance of Veteran’s Day on campus.”Tags: Air Force ROTC, Army ROTC, Clarke Memorial Fountain, Naval ROTC, ROTC, Veterans Day God. Country. Notre Dame.On Nov. 11, this traditional Notre Dame motto took on an even deeper significance as Veteran’s Day was observed on North Quad by Notre Dame’s Army, Navy and Air Force ROTC units.last_img read more
