first_imgThe average estate agency commission rate in the UK has increased by 0.26% to 1.51% over the past 12 months, estate agency comparison website GetAgent has claimed.This means someone selling a property at the average house price in the UK will pay £4,154 to sell their home, £750 more than last year.The research also reveals how much commission rates vary across the UK from as low as 0.83 in Hambleton in North Yorkshire to 2.32% in Kensington & Chelsea, where selling a home costs on average approximately £25,000.But GetAgent admits that commissions have been gradually reducing in recent years, and that not that long ago 3.5% ‘used to be the norm’.Greater London has 15 of the highest commission rates in the UK, as might be expected, but there are some less-expected hotbeds of high commission rates including Blaenau Gwent (2.14%), West Devon (1.95%), Middlesbrough (1.94%), Breckland (1.9%), Medway (1.88%) and Neath Port Talbot (1.87%).And the areas with the largest increases in agent commission are South Ayrshire (+0.58%), Rugby (+0.57%), Hartlepool (+0.52%) and Hart (+0.52%).“With the market starting to pick up after months on end of Brexit uncertainty, exacerbated by a total pandemic lockdown, it’s only natural that fees will also see a slight lift, particularly given the financial turmoil some agents may now be in,” says Colby Short, CEO of GetAgent.“Vendors are also starting to realise the vital role estate agents play in the property selling process and, given the tougher market conditions, they will probably find their fees much better value for money than they may have previously.”Read more about commission rates.commission rates GetAgent July 30, 2020Nigel LewisWhat’s your opinion?

first_imgOcean City High School students display some Christmas ornaments they made that will grace the New Jersey tree in Washington, D.C. in December. (Photos by Ben Hale, JASM Consulting) Out of all of the schools in the state, Ocean City High School was selected to create 24 ornaments to decorate the New Jersey tree in Washington, D.C. Each student was given a county in New Jersey to represent in the ornament they decorated. Students also had to keep their theme of “New Jersey and You – Our Garden State,” with a concentration in the environment, specifically of their given county.Students included elements such as photos of themselves, a map of the county, an important historical element of the county, the county flag or seal, and more. The ornaments will be ready for the nation to see by Dec. 1.Each ornament has special qualities to go with the county the student selected to represent.last_img read more

first_imgThe National Farmers’ Union (NFU) has welcomed the conclusions of the European Chemicals Agency (ECHA) that scientific evidence does not classify glyphosate (a herbicide used on wheat) as a carcinogen for reproduction.Guy Smith, NFU vice-president, has said the overwhelming weight of evidence shows that glyphosate poses no risk to human health when used correctly.“This opinion is shared by regulatory bodies around the world, including the World Health Organization, the Food and Agriculture Organization of the UN and the European Food Safety Authority,” Smith said.“Glyphosate plays a vital role in agriculture in the UK and around the world. It reduces the need to use other herbicides, it helps to protect soil and cut greenhouse gas emissions by reducing the need for ploughing, and it enables farmers in this country to grow crops that help produce safe, affordable, high-quality British food.”Over the past year, campaigners such as the Soil Association have urged bakers not to use wheat that is sprayed with glyphosate before harvest.The European Commission will make its verdict later this year whether to lengthen the agreement for glyphosate weed killer use. The Commission originally proposed a 15-year marketing licence for glyphosate, and the renewal of the authorisation has been fiercely debated since March 2015.Smith added: “Now ECHA has released its classification, there can be no reason why glyphosate should not be re-authorised for a further 15 years when the European Commission makes its decision later this year.“We will continue to work with our members and with other European farming unions to ensure that the facts about glyphosate’s safety and importance are heard in the run-up to that decision.”last_img read more

first_imgMOST MEMORABLE MOMENTS FROM THE BRO EDITORIAL TEAMI’ll never forget using night-vision goggles to look for Bigfoot in the woods near Quantico at 2 a.m. (“In Search of Bigfoot,” August 2008).—Graham Averill, Senior EditorOn one of my first assignments for Blue Ridge Outdoors (“Ferris’ Week Off,” July 2003), I spent a week straight tackling a different adventure: mountain biking Canaan Valley, rafting the New River, climbing Great Falls, backpacking Shenandoah, and running the Willis River Trail. The story culminated with my tandem hang gliding lesson near Lynchburg, Va. I was stunned by the abrupt shift of emotions that came with soaring through the air at 2,500 feet. Extreme fear suddenly turned into meditative peacefulness as I stared into the Blue Ridge sunset.—Jedd Ferris, Managing EditorIronically, during my run across Great Smoky Mountains National Park for Clean Air (March 2002 cover), I suffered a debilitating, pollution-induced respiratory attack. The experience was disappointing at the time, but it ended up playing a pivotal role in a lawsuit filed by the state of North Carolina against Tennessee Valley Authority over its pollution-spewing coal-fired power plants. North Carolina won the lawsuit, and TVA is now required to install pollution control devices on all power plants affecting Great Smokies National Park and the state of North Carolina.—Will Harlan, Editor-in-Chieflast_img read more

first_img Share 34 Views   one comment Tweet Share Sharing is caring!center_img Share LocalNews Health professionals here receive training on the movement of diabetic foot ulcers by: – June 15, 2011 Health Educator, Anthelia JamesThe Ministry of Health in collaboration with the Pan American Health Organisation, hosted a one day workshop on ‘diabetic foot care’.The objective of the workshop was to reduce the negative effects of chronic non communicable diseases on the quality of life of persons affected by diabetes.“All available data globally, regionally and at national level, show that diabetes is one of the leading causes of mortality and morbidity. This impacts not only on the quality of life of persons affected, but also on their families. It also affects the national drug expenditure which we might hear a little about later and all in all the overall economic development of countries. The Dominica diabetic foot care programme focuses on militating against one of the main complications of diabetes and the programme speaks for itself: the diabetic foot. The programme aims to build capacity of all stake holders: those who are involved in some way or the other in caring for the feet of persons with diabetes.” Health Educator, Anthelia JamesCoordinator of the Health Promotion and Resource Centre, Helen Royer, spoke of the effort by the Ministry of Health to educate nationals about the care of diabetics.“The programme comprises of several components and seeks to create the awareness among health care providers, allied health workers, diabetics and their care givers on the severe complications of diabetes and the need to standardise the management of diabetics in regards to foot care. Today’s component is the first level of training and targets medical doctors both at the hospitals and the seven (7) health districts. It offers a concentrated programme that covers how to assess and treat advanced lower extremity arterial disease with the goal of saving the limb. The training brings together experienced skilled professionals who will provide specific detailed information about proper diagnosis and management and will give physicians the knowledge to make critical decisions that ensure the best possible outcome for every patient they come in contact with at the community or hospital setting.” Coordinator of the Health Promotion and Resource Centre, Helen RoyerDirector of Primary Health Care, Dr. Martin Christmas, stressed the importance of the people living with diabetes take care of their feet.“One of the common illnesses in our medium is diabetes. It has also been estimated that approximately fifteen percent (15%) of the more than one hundred and fifty million (150 000 000) people worldwide with diabetes will, at some stage, develop diabetic foot ulceration. Chronic diabetes is a decreased production of insulin by the pancreas as you would all know or an inability to utilise the insulin produced.The condition needs constant monitoring to be kept in check and is linked to a number of complications including vascular disease, retinopathy, diabetic nephropathy, neuropathy and diabetic foot ulcers which are of primary concern today. These diabetic foot ulcers can be associated with an increased risk of infection, reduced mobility, diminished quality of life and of course, increased morbidity meaning that persons are not as productive as they would be. We can all attest to that by the large number of persons in fairly productive ages that are affected by diabetic foot problems and have succumbed to amputations. Optimum management of diabetic foot ulcers is a key requirement in the care of patients with diabetes mellitus. The primary care physicians, of which we have many here today, are the principal custodians of the health of the community hence it is that this optimum of diabetic foot becomes the responsibility of the primary health care system.”He is very optimistic about the outcome of Friday’s workshop. Director of Primary Health Care, Dr. Martin Christmas“We hope that the end of this workshop caregivers will appreciate that the effects of the increased blood sugars will vary from person to person and that, likewise, diabetes will affect the feet of each individual in a different manner. Some diabetic patients have a very big risk of foot problems and it is extremely important to screen persons with diabetes mellitus to find out who is at increased risk for foot problems. Those who are at increased risk will require specialised foot care. This specialised foot care will include having your patients, for example, remove their shoes for careful examination and, of course, the education process which will encourage persons to take good care of their feet, use correctly fitting shoes and be observant for these tell tales of imminent diabetic foot problems.”Meantime, local representative of the Pan American Health Organisation, Shirley Augustine, spoke of the negative impact of the lives of diabetics who do not take care of their feet.“Amputation may involve life-long dependence upon the health of others and some of us have nobody to depend on, inability to work and much misery. Aggressive management of diabetic foot can prevent amputations in most cases. Even when amputations take place, the remaining leg and the persons’ life can be saved by good follow-up from a multi-disciplinary team. Diabetic foot problems are a significant clinical and public health issue in Dominica as they are in the rest of the Caribbean accounting for the majority of admissions to the general surgical service. Deficiencies in care provision and in education uptake by patients have been documented and appropriate interventions are urgently needed.”Mrs. Augustine spoke of the contribution of PAHO to the reduction of diabetes related amputations. Local representative of the Pan American Health Organisation, Shirley Augustine“The Pan American Health Organisation devotes a large proportion of its resources to the prevention and management of chronic non-communicable diseases mainly through training of professionals. PAHO continues to do significant work in the area of diabetes management through its diabetes initiatives for the Americas. In most cases, diabetic foot ulcers and amputations can be prevented. Our focus is on prevention. Researchers have established that between forty-nine percent (49%) and eighty-five percent (85%) of all amputations can be prevented. It is imperative, therefore, that health care professionals, policy makers and diabetes representative organisations undertake concerted action to ensure that diabetic foot-care is structured as effective as local resources will allow. This will facilitate improvements in foot-care for people with diabetes through Dominica and bring about reduction in diabetic foot related morbidity and mortality.”By Emmanuel JosephGIS Newslast_img read more

first_img The French club have also confirmed bids for the 21-year-old striker, who has scored 18 goals in Ligue 1 this season. And Arsenal may have to move quickly if they want to add Osimhen to their star-studded attack this summer. The Nigeria international has enjoyed a stellar season in France after arriving last year from Belgian side Sporting Charleroi for £10m as a replacement for Emirates-bound Pepe. Arsenal are now looking to bring Osimhen to North London as well despite spending a club-record £72m on Pepe. But they will have to fork out a similar fee if they want to sign the talented youngster. And Lille confirmed there are other teams in the mix for his coveted signature. “We turned down one English and one Spanish offer this January transfer window. “There is a wide array [this summer] and I wouldn’t want to give the names of the clubs who are bidding. Loading… Lille of France have been demanding for a fee close to the £72million Arsenal spent on Nicolas Pepe for new Gunners target Victor Osimhen.center_img “But what I can tell you is there are multiple [offers]. “There are three championships that have clubs that have bid for him. “I am not being a sales guy because last year people didn’t believe that we had the offers we had with Pepe, and it turns out we had multiple of them. “Let me tell you with Osimhen, it is the same thing, whatever number you heard. “The high number I have read is very much on the money of the offers that we have received. That’s where we are.” Meanwhile, Arsenal could be set to hand David Luiz a contract reprieve after it emerged they were yet to take up the option of extending his deal past the end of the month.
