When Hannells opened its doors in 2003, our focus was always on being the best, not the biggest. It’s easy for an Agent to take their customers for granted and start resting on their laurels which is why we’re always looking for ways to improve and is why we’ve been able to do so well.”The Derby agency partnered with Derby County Football Club in 2016 – a first for a Derbyshire Estate Agency. This resulted in impressive branding throughout Pride Park Stadium and regular prize draws rewarding fans with free tickets to games and other Derby County memorabilia.Ashley Peden, Director of Partnerships at Derby County Football Club said, “When the opportunity became available to sponsor the East Stand we felt this was a perfect fit for Hannells to help increase their brand presence in Derby.”Hannells’ new Lettings office Hannels’ office opening Bradley Johnson Derby County’s star midfielder March 29, 2017The NegotiatorWhat’s your opinion?

At approximately 7:55 am on Tuesday, May 17, 2016 a letter containing a suspicious device was discovered at the US Post Office located at 600 Cross Valley Circle.United States Postal Service (USPS) authorities then placed the suspicious device in a safe area outside of their facility and called the police. USPS employees were moved from the area to a safe zone inside of the building.The EPD’s Hazardous Devices Unit (HDU) responded to the scene and deployed their robot to examine the device. X-rays and photographs taken of the device indicated it appeared to be constructed in a manner that was consistent with an improvised explosive device (IED).In was determined that the safest method of disabling the device was to utilize a disrupter charge on it and render it safe in place. A stand-off pit was dug and the device was placed in the pit by the robot.Traffic adjacent to the post office was shut down by the EPD when the HDU prepared to render the device safe. HDU members then placed the disrupter charge on the device and remotely detonated the device in order to render it safe.HDU members then confirmed through the robot cameras and then by visual inspection that the device had been disabled. Remaining fragments were collected and turned over to Investigators with the USPS for further testing and follow up investigation. The USPS resumed its normal business at approximately 12 noon.The investigation into the origin of the suspicious package will be conducted by USPS Investigators.

Load remaining images Spafford | Crescent Ballroom | Phoenix, AZ | 12/29-31/2017 | Photos: Ron Adelberg On the heels of a year of unprecedented growth in today’s jam scene, Spafford hosted a three-night hometown throwdown at the Crescent Ballroom in Phoenix, Arizona, to ring in 2018. Selling out all three nights, the band’s energy and enthusiasm throughout the weekend were infectious. In addition to the group’s more standard fare, the group also treated fans to a handful of new debuts across the weekend, and in true Spafford form, the tunes frequently featured patient jams and an eclectic mix of Americana, rock, and reggae.Highlights from night one of the New Year’s Eve run included a first set chock full of major jam vehicles like “Virtual Bean Dip”, “Ain’t That Wrong”, and “Leave the Light On”. Set two started with the Spafford debut of Atlanta Rhythm Sections’ “So Into You”, which offered a tasty laid-back funk vibe before landing into a massive must-hear version of “Plans”.Setlist: Spafford | Crescent Ballroom | Phoenix, AZ | 12/29/2017Set One: See You [ 1 ], People, Virtual Bean Dip, Ain’t That Wrong, Leave The Light On, Radio [ 2 ]Set Two: So Into You [ 3 ], Plans, Todd’s Tots, Mad World, America > The RepriseEncore: Mind’s Unchained[ 1 ]: First Time Played[ 2 ]: First Time Played[ 3 ]: First Time Played[Audio: Taper Troy]Night two saw the band firing on all cylinders as they ran through classic numbers played frequently during 2017. One highlight of the night was a must-listen jam during the recently debuted Andrew “Red” Johnson-penned “My Road (My Road)”. The set also saw the debut of another new song, Brian Moss original “Night After Night”—a raging reggae dance party that lead the set to a fiery close.Set two, the band opened up with another first-time-played cover with the 80’s metal classic “Sister Christian” by Night Ranger. The improvisation in night two’s second set stands up against anything the band played in 2017. The instrumental “Bee Jam” saw the band explore several different themes before landing into a buttery smooth segue into “Walls”. Next up was the Jordan Fairless-lead “Lonely”, which was taken to a completely new dimension. A stirring emotional debut version of “Tuesday’s Gone” led the night to an epic conclusion.Setlist: Spafford | Crescent Ballroom | Phoenix, AZ | 12/30/2017Set One: Shake You Loose, The Remedy, My Road (My Road), Catfish John, It’s A Bunch > On Fire, Night After NightSet 2: Sister Christian, Backdoor Funk, All My Friends > Bee Jam > Walls, Lonely, The PostmanEncore: Tuesday’s Gone[Audio: Taper Troy]The anticipation of NYE was extremely evident as the crowd waiting for the band to take the stage on 12/31. Dubbed the Electrofunk Ball by a fan-led campaign, there was a truly festive atmosphere as everyone was eager to celebrate. The band rose to the occasion, with a night that the fans have been raving about to start 2018.In the first set, the band debuted a coupling of new music in the form of “Lovesick Melody” > “Soil”. This brand new rocker was infectious as it gave way to the funky instrumental to follow. The groove landed right in the pocket, and the crowd energy throughout the venue was explosive. Set two started with the only-twice-played “Steak Sauce” before transitioning into the fan-favorite “Salamander Song”, which built to a ferocious peak and the ending sing-a-long refrain of “dancing the whole way home”.Next up, it was time to see what the band had in store for the big ball drop, and they lit the venue on fire. Dropping into a heavy funk groove with its monster bassline and dirty drum beat, the band then turned to guitarist Brian Moss as he laid into the talkbox-led melody of the Eagles classic “Those Shoes”. Marking the first time the talk box has been used on the Spafford stage, it was an extremely welcome new tone. Jordan Fairless took over the Don Henley vocals with his smooth and scratchy voice, and the energy was once again explosive.Dropping into a minor key psychedelic spacey jam, the band launched into the only once previously played “Aliens” with its dark psychedelia and “aliens are coming” chant, and the crowd was treated to an impressive display of giant 10-foot alien inflatables, alien balloons, and confetti, creating quite a vibe to bring in 2018 with Spafford. The show concluded with heavy hitters “All In” and “Electric Taco Stand”.When all was said and done, the weekend served as yet another reminder of Spafford’s ever-growing presence.

Last night, Saturday Night Live hosted a Christmas episode which featured a hilarious sketch devoted entirely to alternative rock band Weezer.The sketch begins with an argument about between Matt Damon and Leslie Jones about Weezer, which derails a Christmas dinner. The argument begins after Weezer’s cover of Toto’s “Africa” is played at the dinner table. Matt Damon’s character proclaims, “I think they’re doing some cool things right now. They just set a release date for the freakin’ Black Album.” Jones responds with, “I’m just a little confused because real Weezer fans know they haven’t had a good album since Pinkerton in ’96.”The hilarious argument continues to escalate with a series of heated exchanges between Damon and Jones. Damon fires back with, “Uh oh, looks like we have a purist in the house”, as Jones rebuttals by saying, “Weezer put out two perfect albums, ‘Blue’ and Pinkerton, and the rest is pretty corny.” “Well, that’s your opinion, but me, I’m ride or die,” Damon says.Damon and Jones have a funny exchange regarding frontman Rivers Cuomo, as Damon comments, “Why don’t you grow the hell up and listen to Ratitude and Pacific Daydream… You just don’t understand what Rivers is going through right now. Jones responds with, “Rivers doesn’t understand what Rivers is going through.”Watch Saturday Night Live’s recent Weezer sketch below:SNL – Weezer[Video: Saturday Night Live]In the recent hours following the sketch, members of Weezer weighed in on SNL’s shenanigans.Rivers Cuomo tweeted, “THEY HAD A WHOLE ASS SKIT ABOUT WEEZER AND ME ON SATURDAY NIGHT LIVE AND IM ACTUALLY CRYING AAAGGGGHHHHHHH.”Drummer Patrick Wilson added on his Twitter, “Go Matt Damon!,” with former bassist Matt Sharp exclaiming, “Priceless, love it. Life is just beautifully ridiculous. Thanks @nbcsnl.”Cheers to you Weezer![H/T Consequence of Sound]
The holidays are just around the corner and shoppers are beginning to search for those perfect gifts. If home gardeners are on the list, consider these ideas from University of Georgia Cooperative Extension experts.UGA Extension county agents and horticulture specialists spend their workdays teaching home and professional gardeners the latest research-based information. In their off time, many of these experts love to dig in the soil in their own home gardens and landscapes.When asked what they’d like to find under their Christmas trees this year, here’s what they said:Stephen Pettis, the UGA Extension Agricultural and Natural Resources (ANR) agent in Rockdale County, Georgia, has a long wish list that includes a gift card to Johnny’s Selected Seeds, a pair of garden gloves, safety sunglasses, a sun hat, a bonsai pot and “a nice, big flower pot for the front porch.”He also has several tools on his wish list. He wants a telescoping pole pruner – without a saw, just the lopper on a pole – Gerber multi-tool pruners, a Japanese gardening knife, a bulb auger that attaches to a cordless drill, a garden cart or wagon and a two-wheeled wheelbarrow. “I think a valuable tool would also be a good Adirondack chair for resting after the workday is done,” Pettis said.Trey Gafnea, ANR agent in Jasper County, Georgia, hopes to find a gas-powered tiller, a push broadcast spreader, work gloves and pruners, with both short hand grips and long hand grips, under his holiday tree. He also wants some traditional hand tools, like a round-pointed shovel, a steel rake and a hoe.Apparently, pruning shears are in high demand. Wade Hutcheson, ANR agent in Spalding County, Georgia, also wants a pair. He prefers the FELCO brand, but said there are several good brands available. He also wants a spading fork, a gift certificate for a tree to put in his landscape and a big load (500 or 1,000 pounds) of soil amendment or compost.Hutcheson has been gardening at home and at work for decades, but he recommends giving a copy of Walter Reeves’ “Guide to Georgia Vegetable Gardening” for new vegetable gardeners.Hutcheson’s ultimate gift would be one free tree removal by a professional tree service or a coupon good for four to eight hours of free labor. Brenda Jackson, ANR agent in Murray County, Georgia, has a unique request. “My ideal Christmas gift would be for my husband to pull weeds while I ride around on the mower for a change,” she said.UGA Extension Community Garden Coordinator Becky Griffin wants a “load of really good compost,” a pair of pruners and a container for gathering her vegetables.Sam Ingram, ANR agent in Effingham County, Georgia, wants a gift that will make his gardening tasks easier. “I want an extender to pick up pine cones and such. It will really save my back,” he said.After spending her days working outside in the soil, Fayette County, Georgia, ANR Agent Kim Toal wants a few indoor plants to enjoy. She prefers orchids.Take a tip from these UGA Extension gardeners when selecting a holiday gift for the gardener, and maybe the gardener will share a little of their harvest in return.
By Dialogo June 29, 2011 In the state of Sinaloa (northwestern Mexico), Mexican soldiers located a laboratory for producing synthetic drugs with two underground levels and an infrastructure that is unprecedented in the country, the defense ministry announced. While on patrol in a settled area belonging to the city of Culiacán, the capital of Sinaloa, military personnel found a “laboratory composed of an underground metallic structure with two levels, an elevator, and ventilation,” “hidden among the underbrush,” the Secretariat of Defense explained in a statement. The installation was ten meters deep, twelve meters wide, and ten meters long. One level was furnished as a lodging area and kitchen, and the other as a “warehouse with two rooms with organic synthesis reactors,” the ministry indicated. “This is the first laboratory secured with this kind of infrastructure,” the ministry affirmed. In the installation, 260 kilos of methamphetamine, 180 liters of liquid methamphetamine, and 450 liters of caustic soda were seized, the Secretariat of Defense specified, without indicating that anyone was detained in the operation. Sinaloa is a fief of the cartel led by the fugitive Joaquín ‘El Chapo’ Guzmán, considered Mexico’s chief drug trafficker, and is one of the five states with the highest rate of murders linked to organized crime.
“Everybody’s been kind of on a lockdown, and I have four children that tend to get a little crazy and cooped up, so I came up with the idea to draw some artwork outside of our window with some chalk, and they loved it,” said Soto. That is until, the coronavirus made its way to our area, Soto decided to take on a larger canvas — the sidewalk. “They come out, and they draw with their chalk, they try to be like their mommy, which I love. I try to encourage their artistic abilities,” said Soto. Take Keri Soto, for example. Soto has always loved to draw, but she never gave herself the title that goes along with the talent. Drawing smiles to people’s faces, all chalked up to Soto’s spirit and creativity. To see more of Soto’s work, click here. She creates characters and cartoons, pleasing both adults and children. Her kids have even joined in on helping. “The amazing part is when they pass by, they are like, ‘Look at this one! She’s so good!’ I even had a child come up to me and say, ‘Are you the chalk lady?’ So that in itself is rewarding,” said Soto. Soto says the purpose of her artwork is to bring some fresh air into the world, making the days a little brighter. “I’ve drawn my whole life. I’ve drawn on my pants — my mother used to get so upset with me. Brand new pants, I’m drawing on them. I would draw, doodle all over my notebooks in school and stuff like that,” she said. “Did I consider myself an artist? No, but I am definitely starting to realize maybe the possibility.” SIDNEY, N.Y. (WBNG) — Throughout this pandemic, it’s been easy to focus on the negatives, but around the Southern Tier, people doing things to help brighten the times. Soto says she will keep going with her art as long as it makes people happy, and she thanks her friends and family for supporting her. “Even though we’re going through such a tough time and we’re all worried about what’s going on in the world, it’s nice to take that breath. That deep breath and just be like, ‘Everything’s going to be okay. We just have to stay positive and move forward, and stick together honestly,'” she said.
