Turkuaz is a complete force to be reckoned with. While the funk powerhouse stands strong on their own, they of course get stronger with numbers. Percussionist Nate Werth of Snarky Puppy will be joining the 9-piece “Powerfunk” outfit from now until December 4th. Currently on tour with The New Mastersounds, the nation sweeping tour will make stops at The Fillmore in San Francisco, Park West in Chicago, the 9:30 Club in Washington DC, Terminal 5 in New York City, and beyond.It’s safe to assume these shows will sell out quickly, so we recommend you get your tickets on the fly!
UGA agricultural and environmental lawyer Terence Centner is in Europe’s oil and gas production capital this spring to study how regulations on hydraulic fracturing affect both the environment and energy companies. Centner, a professor in the UGA College of Agricultural and Environmental Sciences Department of Agricultural and Applied Economics, will work with faculty at the Centre for Energy Law at the University of Aberdeen on a project examining regulatory options for minimizing environmental damage from hydraulic fracturing activities to properties, populations and the environment. “I hope that our research on regulatory options to safeguard people and the environment can be used all over the world in improving environmental quality associated with the development of energy reserves,” Centner said. Centner has spent 30 years at CAES studying the intersection of environmental policies and environmental outcomes in agricultural and natural resource conservation settings. Centner’s work is being funded by the Core Fulbright Scholar Program, which provides teaching and research grants to U.S. faculty in a wide variety of academic and professional fields. In 2015, five scholars from UGA received Core Fulbright awards, making UGA one of the top producing research institutions of Fulbright scholars. The University of Aberdeen, perched on the coast of the energy-rich North Sea in Scotland, is home to some of the most noted energy law research in Europe. In addition to collaborating with other energy law scholars, Centner hopes to learn more about European attitudes towards and academic perspectives on gas and oil drilling regulation. He will also serve as a visiting professor at the University of Aberdeen, teaching a course on environmental concerns in energy production for the Masters of Law (LLM) program in energy law. The class he is teaching contains students from nine countries on five continents. This will create a diverse learning environment. Centner is excited to bring back new perspectives to his students here at UGA. “These experiences will allow me to share European perspectives of environmental regulation of potentially damaging activities in my classes at UGA,” he said. For Centner, this Fulbright Award is his second. In 2002, he was named a Fulbright Senior Fellow and worked at the University of Mannheim in Germany where he taught environmental law and commenced writing his book “Blame Culture.” Centner has also given seminars at Aarhus University in Denmark and the University College of Dublin in Ireland, and he has been invited to five additional universities. He will also give a Gresham College lecture on “Managing Risks Related to Hydraulic Fracturing” at the Museum of London during his time abroad. Centner has a bachelor’s of science with distinction from Cornell University, a juris doctor from the State University of New York at Buffalo and a legum magister from the University of Arkansas.
3. good tenant mix All of the proceeds from the listing will be reinvested in the Philippines. The intended DD Meridian Park (DDMP) REIT will consist of seven buildings with a total area of 248,349 square meters. 4. capable property management DOUBLEDRAGON Properties Corp. identified its first tranche of REIT assets comprising the leasable properties of DD Meridian Park. 2. reasonable yield above a bond coupon “We believe all of these elements are present in DoubleDragon’s leasable portfolio,” said Sia. The REIT proceeds will be enough to construct about 450,000 square meters of building floor area which will further significantly increase the leasable portfolio and recurring rental revenues of the company in the near term. 5. good pipeline of assets for future infusion In addition to the seven buildings that will form the first tranche of DDMP REIT, another two more buildings are planned to be infused in the DDMP REIT after about two to three years as these two other buildings are still currently under construction, also located in the DD Meridian Park complex. DD Meridian Park complex sits on a five-hectare prime commercial property at the corner of Macapagal Avenue and EDSA Extension at the Bay Area, Pasay City, Metro Manila. The project is LEED Gold certified. DoubleDragon Properties Corp. identified its first tranche of REIT assets comprising the leasable properties of DD Meridian Park. The intended DD Meridian Park (DDMP) REIT will consist of seven buildings with a total area of 248,349 square meters. The REIT listing will enable the total equity of DoubleDragon to surpass the P50 billion mark. 1. asset basket in a prime location that is seen to remain relevant in the next 30-50 years at least According to DoubleDragon chairman Edgar “Injap” Sia II, other than the safeguards already indicated in the REIT listing rules, REIT investors generally want five elements present: DoubleDragon currently has 803,000 square meters in its portfolio and plans to list via REIT about 200,000 to 250,000 square meters annually from 2020 to 2025, which will enable the company to unlock the values of its prime leasable assets and significantly strengthen its equity base year on year moving forward. DD Meridian Park complex sits on a five-hectare prime commercial property at the corner of Macapagal Avenue and EDSA Extension at the Bay Area, Pasay City, Metro Manila. The project is LEED Gold certified, walking distance to the LRT/MRT station and houses prominent tenants including the head office of the Tourism Infrastructure and Enterprise Zone Authority (TIEZA) as well as the head office of the Philippine Economic Zone Authority (PEZA). The company is preparing to file its REIT listing application with the Securities and Exchange Commission (SEC) and the Philippine Stock Exchange (PSE) on August 2020 and aims to list DDMP REIT by this year, on October 2020. The estimated value of the basket of REIT assets stands at P50,889,814,608 and DoubleDragon expects to generate P16,966,604,869 of proceeds from the planned REIT listing representing an offer of 33.33 percent of the selected REIT assets, which is the minimum public float based on the revised REIT listing rules. As of March 31, 2020, DoubleDragon’s Consolidated Total Assets stood at P115.32 Billion while Total Equity is at P44.50 billion. Cash position stands at P5.30 billion. “The REIT valuation of US$1 billion, we believe, is an attractive size that would appeal to a strong pool of both foreign and local REIT investors,” said DoubleDragon Chief Investment Officer Hannah Yulo-Luccini. “REITs are a good way to recycle capital for expansion of the Company’s portfolio and raise equity to further boost its balance sheet. Since the offer will only cover 33.33% of the REIT basket, DoubleDragon will retain majority of the REIT assets so it will remain consolidated in the Company’s balance sheet,” added Yulo-Luccini./PN
The DNR is reminding Indiana hunters that even though deer attractants found at retail stores can be purchased and used in the wild, hunting near them is illegal.They are considered bait.Indiana regulations prohibit the hunting of deer with the use or aid of bait, which is defined as “a food that is transported and placed for consumption, including, but not limited to, piles of corn and apples placed in the field; a prepared solid or liquid that is manufactured and intended for consumption by livestock or wild deer, including, but not limited to, commercial baits and food supplements; salt; or mineral supplements.”This includes artificial products marketed under names such as Deer Co-Cain, Buck Jam, Trophy Rock, as well as mineral blocks, salt blocks, and even natural foods such as corn and apples.“Basically, if you place anything that isn’t grown in the area and hunt there, it’s illegal,” said Lt. Larry Morrison, outdoor education director for DNR Law Enforcement. “Hunting next to a corn field or from an apple tree is legal, but placing corn or apples under your tree stand would put you in conflict with current Indiana law.”An area is considered baited for 10 days after the product and the affected soil is removed from an area.Odor differs from bait. Cover scents or scent attractants are legal to use when hunting.Archery season currently is underway in Indiana and continues through Jan. 5, 2014.The most popular segment of Indiana’s deer hunting season – firearms – begins Nov. 16 and ends Dec. 1, followed by the muzzleloader season from Dec. 7-22.
