With the appropriate drumbeat, an officer could summon his officers or the entire Regiment by the drumbeat.“During the battle, the drum communicated between the different units,” Murphy said. “The drum beat could order an attack or a withdrawal. It could sped up the soldiers or slow them down. So, Jim Capers had a very important role to play in the American Revolution for seven years.”Capers applied for a pension in Pike County in 1849. He was 107 years old.last_img read more

Exclusive: Howsy buys Upad out of liquidation and re-employs staff

Posted on by

first_imgOnline lettings platform Howsy has bought former rival Upad out of liquidation for an undisclosed sum and will run the business separately, The Negotiator can reveal, hot on the heels of its Urban.co.uk acquisition in September when it also announced a further £5 million fundraise.Upad went into liquidation in mid-October after founder James Davis said ill health had led him to discontinue the business.Howsy CEO Calum Brannan (pictured, above) says Davis has been ‘extremely helpful’ during the process, and that the purchase includes the brand name, technology, landlord client list and website.Brannan has also revealed that, although all Upad’s staff were made redundant in October, Howsy has tracked many of them down and a number have now re-joined the business.“They were key to building the Upad brand, we are keen to ensure that they are part of the next stage of the business,” he says.“We’re going to revive the brand name and build upon it, making sure that we learn from all of the great work that has gone into building such a well-known and respected name.“Upad’s technology delivers some fantastic solutions, and their loyal customer base represents a cross-section of UK landlords who we hope we can continue to deliver a great service.”ComplementaryBrannan says Upad will be operated as an independent but complementary brand and that “different landlords have very different needs, and we are keen to ensure that we cater for all those needs”, he says.“Over time, as the brands develop and we gather more feedback from customers, we may decide to integrate the organisations a little more, but there is certainly no rush.”Howsy and Upad are similar, but different businesses. Howsy runs a three-tier fee structure that includes tenant finding and on-boarding, property management and a premium service.Upad’s service offers is largely a tenant finding service, with rent collection as a bolt-on, but does not include traditional property management. Howsy says it will be contacting all former Upad customers over the next few days and that for many of them it will be ‘business and usual”.calum brannan Howsy james davis upad January 13, 2020Nigel LewisOne commentAndrew Stanton, CEO Proptech-PR Real Estate Influencer & Journalist CEO Proptech-PR Real Estate Influencer & Journalist 14th January 2020 at 4:54 pmIt will be interesting to see if the current trend of buying online agencies once they have failed, and of course are free of incumbent debt, proves to be good business. Emoov 2 seems to have made minimal progress after 12-months and other concerns that have been hoovered up have yet to turn a penny. Calum Brannan is a very capable man, as indeed is James Davis the former owner of Upad, but, for me the problem always seems the same.Tech should allow us or the founders and torch holders to re-imagine the blueprint of the process, given that proptech allows solutions not available before. You see, tech is a tool, used to solve some pretty basic problems. Like how do we make Rentals more efficient? – that was a joke by the way as there are other 150 processes at work.My advice Calum, use the purchase of the assets of Upad, and before you do anything try to imagine what the rental sector will be like in 5 years time and build that model, do not automate or just digitally transform the current model, not easy but essential, get a room and fill it with users, developers and lots of clients, landlords and tenants and all the associated stakeholders and start asking questions, you will be surprised at the answers.Log in to ReplyWhat’s your opinion?

Posted on by

first_imgAbout 240 Corvettes line the Ocean City Boardwalk for the car show Sunday in 2018. By Maddy VitaleConstant rains pelted the Ocean City Boardwalk. It left those who ogled Corvettes on display to don umbrellas.But the rains just beaded off the pristine, glossy, gleaming displays of cars that represent the best of American motors.Now in its 28th year, the event is organized and sponsored by Boardwalk Corvettes of Atlantic City. It is considered one of the top five Corvette shows in the country, organizers said.Corvette owner Ken Mattis, of Ocean City and Upper Gwynedd Townsip, Pa., checks out the engine in this late model Vette.Carrie Dickinson, co-chairwoman of the Boardwalk Corvettes, said there were 480 cars registered but the rains scared away some owners.“On a day like this, it is incredible we had this many people,” Dickinson said. “It is a huge event. It’s a lot of fun. We do it for people to have a great time with their cars and to raise money for charities.”Proceeds from registration fees benefit local charities, including the Ocean City Humane Society.This patriotic-themed Corvette really represents the All-American car.Jim Root, a Humane Society board member and volunteer, said no matter how much or how little money would be raised Sunday, the event is about bringing the community together to have a good time and donate to good causes.Corvettes lined the Boardwalk in an awesome display of America’s supercar between Sixth and 14th streets. There was a combination of new and vintage Vettes.Peggy and Ken Mattis, of Upper Gywnedd and Ocean City, stand by their 1999 C5 Corvette.Ken and Peggy Mattis, of Ocean City and Upper Gwynedd Township, Pa., drove their 1999 C5 Corvette to be in the show.“I grew up on Corvettes. They are fun to drive. The roof comes off your hair blows in the breeze,” Ken Mattis said.“It is fun to drive,” Peggy Mattis said with a smile.When asked if they had another Corvette, Ken Mattis said with a laugh, “One is enough for now.”Dean Ferraro, of Levittown Pa., admires this 2011 Corvette.But Dean Ferraro, of Levittown, Pa., enjoys the fact that he has two Vettes – a 1970 and a 2006.“My 1970 is one of the best years for Vettes,” Ferraro said. “They are just awesome cars.”Jeff Maher, of Linwood, and his daughter Charlie, 2, admired a 2006 Corvette. Maher said he and his family come to the show every year. He hopes he will be able to get his 1985 Corvette on the road and into the show by next year.Jeff Maher and his daughter, Charlie, 2, of Linwood, stop to admire this Corvette.Mike Boguszewski, of Washington Township, N.J., wore a Jeep hat. But it was no secret he loved the Corvettes that graced the Boardwalk.He and his daughter, Layla, 3, checked out some Vettes. “I like Vettes. I just wish it was a nicer day,” he said.And while the theme of this year’s show was “Endless Summer,” it seemed nothing of the sort, with temperatures in the 60s and continual rains.Despite the downpour, Deb Harris was happy to show off her bright red 2005 Vette.“We come every year,” Harris, of Lewes, Del., said of she and her husband, Rich. “This is an awful year because of the weather, but at least the proceeds go to a good cause.”Deb Harris, of Lewes, Del., with her 2005 Vette, is in the show every year.Mike Boguszewski, of Washington Township, N.J., with daughter, Layla, 3.This is a Corvette from the 1970s.last_img read more

Mossey and Whatton are a traveling trainer team for Subaru and Leave No Trace, driving across the Eastern U.S., educating schools, camps, and the general public about Leave No Trace principles. They live year round in an Outback and spent 250 nights camping last year. “The best part of living in your car, is you have everything you need to adventure all the time,” says Mossey. “If we have a couple of hours of free time, and we’re in a spot with incredible climbing or trail running, we’re ready to go.” After a year on the road, Mossey and Whatton have dialed in their road trip gear and system. Here, they outline their favorite pieces of road trip gear.Taxa TigerMoth ($12,900)AM: We recently put a trailer on the Subaru. It only weighs 900 pounds, but has a queen sized bed and a pull out kitchen. There’s tons of storage room…it’s amazing.

I don’t know what we’d do without it.”thule-sonic-xl-cargo-box_FIXENO Hammock ($60)SW: We have our ENOs with us at all times—a DoubleNest and a SingleNest. I really like the new strap system, the Helios, made from Dyneema. They’re really lightweight but also user friendly. The SingleNest is key if we want to have our own space. We’re together all the time, so sometimes that’s nice.SH khaki-olive_FIXCamp Chef Everest Stove ($125)AM: We’re big foodies, making food every day, twice a day. It’s a two-burner stove that’s incredibly reliable You can cook anything on this stove. Our go-to meal is vegetable stir fry, with curry rice.MS2HP_FIXRinse Kit ($90)This little tub of sanitation holds and pressurizes two gallons of water so you can get clean and hit the town immediately after that trail run, ride or climb.RinseKit-Product-2016-Open-Print_FIXMazama Sidestream Hydration Pack ($39) The Sidestream provides a smooth, bounce-free run and an easy, one-handed drink motion that doesn’t interrupt your stride.
