Humberts’ website signs off with a fake phone number for clients to call

first_imgThe website of estate agency Humberts has been down since yesterday afternoon following leaks from shocked staff claiming that the company has gone into administration.A holding page has been uploaded that, for any page accessed, says the company’s website is ‘Under Maintenance’ (see above) and customers seeking to contact the company are directed to call ‘01234 56789’ which is not a real number, while an ‘email us’ button does not work.No official denial or confirmation of the company’s status has been released so far by the company, which is not responding to requests submitted by media organisations for more information.This includes what vendors who are selling their homes through the company should do, or whether its handful of franchisees would be able to continue trading.So far only shocked employees have released information about the company’s claimed demise, telling Property Industry Eye on Sunday that 47 people were affected after being sent an internal memo.Hub approachHumberts has only just finished setting up its network of hubs which, apart from a few franchises, replaced its directly-managed high street branches, and only seven months ago it promoted the architect of its ‘hub’ approach, COO Tim Symmons, to be CEO.Its first and flagship hub was is Poundbury but others followed in Sevenoaks, Cheshire, Taunton, Exeter and Bath.If its fall into administration is confirmed, it will be just 19 months after the company was bought out of a previous administration by upmarket holiday rentals firm Natural Retreats. It had been hoped that the deep pockets of its parent company, lower operating costs and increased revenues from holiday lets would buy the company more time.humberts administration Humberts natural retreats Tim Simmons December 10, 2019Nigel LewisWhat’s your opinion?

PREMIERE: Neville Jacobs Release Groovy New Song, “Wasted”

first_imgYou can check out the Live For Live Music premiere of Neville Jacobs “Wasted” below. The song will appear on the duo’s upcoming debut LP, which is due out September 28th via Harmonized Records. If you like what you hear, you can pre-order the new album on Neville Jacobs website. Neville Jacobs–”Wasted”Neville Jacobs LP Tracklisting:1. Wasted2. Makeup Of A Fool3. The Stakes4. City Rain5. I Wanna Know6. River Behind Me7. Dance For Me Mama8. Money Talks9. Good To YouFor more info on Neville Jacobs upcoming debut LP, due out September 28th, head here! This song came out of a writing session we did in Baltimore. I remember I started that riff on the cigar box guitar, and Ivan just started singing the “wasted” chorus and improvising some vocal melodies. I ended up taking that and writing some lyrics – thinking back on time wasted, being wasted, and time wasted while being wasted! I love the raw feel that we got when we cut the tune, with Brady Blade and Tony Hall laying down a super nasty groove, made even funkier by Ivan on some wah wah guitar. This is one of my favorites for us to play live.”center_img The Neville Jacobs incarnation was a matter of fate and unlikely connections, as Ivan Neville and Cris Jacobs formed a strong friendship after playing a poker game side-by-side, during some leisurely time at New Orleans Jazz Fest. New Orleans bred Ivan Neville has strong familial ties to the music world, being the son of funkster Aaron Neville and nephew of the legendary Neville Brothers. Baltimore-bred Cris Jacobs is an extremely accomplished songwriter and bandleader, bringing flavors of soul and country to his tunes. Together, after realizing the potential the two had beyond the poker table, the duo quickly started writing material together, wasting no time to jump in the studio to record.On September 28th, Neville Jacobs will release their self-titled debut LP via Harmonized Records. To round out the band, the duo tapped Dumpstaphunk bassist Tony Hall and drummer Brady Blade, who have a significant amount of on-stage history together. Hall and Blades have played together as a rhythm section for Emmylou Harris, Dave Matthews, Jewel and several other talented musicians over the years. The album also contains guest appearances from Shreveport, LA-based singer and violinist, Theresa Andersson, as well as Neville’s iconic father, Aaron Neville, lending his soulful vocals on “Makeup Of A Fool”.Today, Live for Live Music is excited to premiere “Wasted”, the first single released to fans off of Neville Jacobs debut LP. “Wasted” is a catchy, feel-good tune, compiling the duo’s diverse musical backgrounds and history. The tight groove held down by Hall and Blade allows Neville and Jacobs’ soulful, soothing vocals, to soar, as their harmonies melt back together into the chorus. “Wasted”‘s mellow, yet groovy complexion, points any listener in the direction of begging for more.As Ivan Neville explained to Live for Live Music in a statement,I’m very excited for this to drop. Any time I get to play some funky Wah Wah Guitar it’s a very happy place for me. On top of that, I got to listen to Cris Jacobs’s nasty cigar box guitar riffs & groove along with the very funky Brady Blade/Tony Hall rhythm section. It doesn’t get much better than this.”Cris Jacobs added:last_img read more

The initiative falls within the framework of an agreement signed during a visit to Chile by Correa on 3 and 4 February. As part of that agreement, the Carabineros, the Chilean national paramilitary police force, will advise on the Ecuadorean police force’s security plans and on a plan for the force’s modernization. “We’ve signed a very important agreement with Chile for a large delegation from the Carabineros, who are considered the best police force in Latin America and one of the best in the world, to come” to support these programs, the president emphasized.last_img read more

Guardian ad litem bill moved

first_img April 30, 2003 Regular News Guardian ad litem bill moved A bill creating the statewide office of the Guardian ad Litem Program in the Justice Administrative Commission passed out of the House Subcommittee on Judicial Appropriations April 15.Rep. Nan Rich, D-Sunrise, the sponsor of HB 439, explained that existing guardian ad litem positions, as well as the attorney ad litem pilot project run by the Barry University School of Law in Orlando, will be transferred to the new office.The governor will appoint an executive director to head the new office from eligible candidates submitted by the Guardian ad Litem Qualifications Committee.“It would transfer approximately $23 million for the guardian and attorney ad litem programs from the state court system to the Justice Administrative Commission,” Rich said. “I believe that is within our budget and should not be a problem.”A last-minute amendment from the governor’s office included Barry’s attorney ad litem project, run by Gerard Glynn.“It enables the program to continue for another year. The program has not been evaluated, and we believe it needs to continue until its evaluation. Then it will be up to the director and the program to determine whether they want to continue (the attorney ad litem program).” Rich said.center_img Guardian ad litem bill movedlast_img read more
