    LEWIS Murphy admits Wakefield’s survival fight is all about belief – win that and he can keep on having strange experiences. Weird times like playing against boyhood heroes in Huddersfield pair Jermaine McGillvary and Leroy Cudjoe and trotting out at what is essentially a building site, with little noise on his wing. 2Lewis Murphy says belief is key in both Wakefield's survival bid and his own performancesCredit: SWPIX.COM The 20-year-old played a huge part in Trinity’s derby success at Castleford, which took them two points clear of Toulouse and two behind Warrington going into this weekend’s fixtures. He admitted his displays are down to being told by boss Willie Poching, his staff and even players to show what he can really do. That message goes for the rest of the side as they look to finish off the job. Murphy said: “I’ve been told to back myself more and believe in my skill when I’ve got the ball in my hand. “People have said there’s a reason why I’m in Wakefield’s first team, so I’ve been trying to express myself...

    DERRELL Olpherts knows seeing him continue his hot scoring streak may lead to several people biting their tongue. For they will be in the Wakefield end with divided loyalties. 2Derrel Olpherts hopes to repeat his try scoring heroics against hometown club WakefieldCredit: SWPIX.COM The Castleford winger bagged four tries in last week’s destruction of Hull FC – now for the big one, facing his hometown club. And while several Trinity fans will be glad for him if he adds to his try collection, they may not necessarily be happy or show it. Olpherts, who grew up in the Lupset area of Wakefield said: “Quite a lot of my mates are Wakefield fans. “A lot of people I know are, although I’ve converted some of them to Castleford.

    Ivana Trump missed out on being wooed by the cream of the British aristocracy after avoiding payments on a redecoration of the Plaza Hotel carried out by a titled Brit.  Sir Humphry Wakefield has revealed that he declined to pass-on letters inquiring about Ivana from the UK's great-and-the-good after she dazzled them with a trip to Claridge's Hotel in London during the late 1980s. Ivana - who died last week aged 73 - annoyed Sir Humphry after commissioning him to furnish the top 12 suites at New York's famed Plaza Hotel while she and ex-husband Donald Trump owned it. Each was named after a famous British stately home, including Chatsworth and Wilton, with Ivana asking Sir Humphry to fill each suite with replica furniture from its namesake. But Ivana had to be publicly shamed into paying $20,000 of Humphry's fee. And although the pair made-up during a subsequent publicity jaunt to London, Humphry took revenge by failing to set the socialite up with some very wealthy new suitors. Sir Humphry Wakefield (pictured) was commissioned by Ivana to build furniture in...

    The Cushman & Wakefield real estate firm is reportedly being held in contempt of court for its refusal to cooperate with subpoenas in connection with the investigation into its business dealings with the Trump Organization, according to a new ruling from a New York judge. According to ABC News, the subpoenas had previously been issued by New York Attorney General Letitia James' office as "part of its civil investigation into how former President Donald Trump and his family business valued their holdings." The firm is said to have provided real estate services for Trump's company for years. Those services include "appraisals and brokerage services" for multiple properties that are now part of the investigative probe being conducted by James' office. Judge Arthur Engoron ruled that the firm will face a $10,000 daily fine for each day it continues its refusal to comply. The imposed fines are set to begin on Thursday, July 7.

    NEW YORK (AP) — A company that has performed hundreds of property appraisals for Donald Trump has been held in contempt of court for missing a deadline to turn over documents in the New York attorney general’s civil investigation into the former president’s business practices. Manhattan Judge Arthur Engoron said late Tuesday that real estate services firm Cushman & Wakefield had shown a “willful failure” to comply with Attorney General Letitia James’ subpoenas, including for records pertaining to Trump’s suburban Seven Springs Estate, a Wall Street office building and a Los Angeles golf course. Engoron ordered Cushman & Wakefield to pay a fine of $10,000 per day, beginning Thursday, for each day that it fails to fully comply with James’ subpoenas. The same judge recently lifted a contempt order for Trump after a two-month legal fight over his slow response to a subpoena for documents in James’ probe. Engoron, in a written order posted to the court docket Wednesday morning, appeared incensed that Cushman & Wakefield had asked for him for more time after missing a June 27 deadline that...
    New York State Attorney General, Letitia James, speaks during a news conference, to announce criminal justice reform in New York City, May 21, 2021.Brendan McDermid | Reuters A New York judge held real estate services giant Cushman & Wakefield in contempt of court for refusing to comply with subpoenas issued as part of the state attorney general's civil probe into former President Donald Trump's company. Cushman will have to pay a $10,000-a-day fine, starting Wednesday, until it complies with the subpoenas, the office of Attorney General Letitia James said. The Tuesday night order from Manhattan Supreme Court Judge Arthur Engoron came less than a week after he lifted a contempt order against Trump himself. Both orders were imposed for failure to fully comply with subpoenas from James' office, which is investigating allegations that the Trump Organization improperly reported the stated valuations of some of its real estate assets for financial gain. The firm did not immediately respond to a request for comment on Engoron's contempt order. This is breaking news. Please check back for updates. TVWATCH LIVEWATCH IN THE APPUP NEXT | ETListen

    Cushman and Wakefield, the real estate firm used by Donald Trump to allegedly inflate the value of his real estate properties, has been ordered by a New York judge to pay a daily $10,000 fine for failing to turn over evidence to state investigators. On Tuesday afternoon, a clearly irked Justice Arthur F. Engoron signed an order ripping into the real estate behemoth for missing a deadline to turn over documents—after having two months to meet it. In his order, Engoron said he “is incredulous as to why Cushman & Wakefield would wait until two days after the court-ordered deadline had lapsed to initiate the process of asking for yet another extension.” He criticized the company, which routinely helped Trump value properties in ways that benefited him directly, for dragging its feet. “Cushman & Wakefield fails to identify any good cause” for blowing the deadline, he wrote. The massive, national real estate firm was supposed to deliver documents related to its valuations of all kinds of properties—so that state investigators could compare how the company treated other projects compared...
    DEFIANT Boris Johnson has today warned Tory rebels not to try another coup to oust him as the leadership question “is settled”. Despite suffering a triple body blow of byelection defeats and a Cabinet resignation, the PM said he is not going anywhere. 1Boris Johnson at Intare Conference Arena in Kigali, Rwanda yesterdayCredit: Reuters Voters are sick and tired of hearing Tory MPs go on about what he “stuffed up”, he said. And he vowed to continue to see through his mission to “level up” Britain.

    Jia Tolentino/New Yorker: We’re Not Going Back to the Time Before Roe. We’re Going Somewhere Worse We are entering an era not just of unsafe abortions but of the widespread criminalization of pregnancy. “We won’t go back”—it’s an inadequate rallying cry, only prompted by events that belie its message. But it is true in at least one sense. The future that we now inhabit will not resemble the past before Roe, when women sought out illegal abortions and not infrequently found death. The principal danger now lies elsewhere, and arguably reaches further. x Trump now should be very worried. Leonard Leo & the Conways don't need him anymore. He gave them the SCOTUS they've dreamed of. GOP will now unleash the dogs on him. We may feel good about it, but make no mistake about it. We lost. They won.

    BORIS JOHNSON could be seen splashing around the hotel pool in Kigali early yesterday morning. Was he waving or drowning? Thursday night’s by-election meltdown stunned ministers and ripped open unhealed Tory wounds over BoJo’s leadership and his future as PM. 1BoJo’s leadership and his future as PM are in question after by-election lossesCredit: Reuters Tory chairman Oliver Dowden dramatically quit in a dawn protest and ex-minister Lord Howard openly called on the Cabinet to dump BoJo. In a moment of madness last week I doubled my £5 wager on Boris surviving until Christmas. And despite his defeat in true-blue Devon and Red Wall Wakefield, I think my tenner is safe. For the moment. Angry Tories know another abortive leadership coup would destroy the party as a political force, perhaps for ever. But will BoJo survive until the next election? I wouldn’t bet on that. The PM was badly mauled by defeat in newly won Wakefield. But the potentially mortal blow was delivered with his record loss of Tiverton and Honiton, the first in a century. Few Tory MPs now feel...

The votes, at opposite ends of England, had been viewed as a litmus test of Johnson's standing after a string of scandals — including parties held at Downing Street during Covid-19 lockdowns — and a spiraling cost-of-living crisis. The double defeats prompted the immediate resignation of Conservative Party Chairman Oliver Dowden, whose resignation letter said the party's supporters were "distressed and disappointed by recent events" and that "someone must take responsibility."WakefieldThe main opposition Labour Party regained its former stronghold seat of Wakefield, in West Yorkshire, from Johnson's ruling Conservative Party.

    RICHMOND — Ford Point, a vast tech and creative complex perched on the Richmond shoreline, a historic site that once was an automobile assembly factory, has been bought by big investors from New York. Madison Capital and Meadow Partners paid $103.7 million for the property, where Ford Motor once manufactured vehicles, according to Cushman & Wakefield, a commercial real estate firm that advised on the high-profile purchase. Orton Development bought the crumbling complex in 2004 from the city of Richmond and launched a massive redevelopment of the property, a series of endeavors that included a complete seismic retrofit of the site, which was badly damaged in the Loma Prieta Earthquake of 1989. The landmark complex, which totals 517,000 square feet, according to Orton Development, is located at 1414 Harbour Way S in Richmond and commands dramatic views of the Bay.

    By James Ludden | Bloomberg Boris Johnson’s Conservative Party is heading for a thumping defeat in this month’s special election in Wakefield, according to a poll published in the Sunday Times, a result that would heighten speculation over the prime minister’s long-term future. According to a J.L. Partners survey of 501 adults in Wakefield, the main opposition Labour Party has 48% support. Wakefield in Yorkshire is one of the historically Labour-voting constituencies in northern England — the so-called Red Wall — that helped deliver a huge majority for Johnson in the 2019 general election. While the Tories have just 28%, much of their decline comes from voters turning to the Greens and the Liberal Democrats rather than to Keir Starmer’s Labour — a factor that could potentially prove less damaging to Johnson. The Conservatives also face a bruising defeat the same day, June 23, in another special election at Tiverton & Honiton in southwestern England — both votes are the result of the incumbent Tory member of Parliament stepping down because of separate sex scandals. According to betting site Smarkets.com,...

Cushman & Wakefield argued that complying with the subpoena for tens of thousands of pages of documents would compromise the confidential information of nearly 1,000 of its clients who have no connection to the Trump Organization or the properties being eyed by Attorney General Letitia James in her civil investigation of Trump.

    Cushman & Wakefield’s new D.C. central office is a company-wide experiment.

It is the first new office that Chicago-based Cushman (NYSE: CWK) has designed with lessons from Covid-19, and the $9.4 billion commercial real estate services giant plans to use these designs to inform the future of its other 400 offices and 50,000 employees. “We want people to be proud to be here, whether it’s for chance collisions or a chance to do more career-wise,” Ryan Miller, who came aboard last year to oversee the D.C. market for Cushman, said of the new office. “It’ll be an adjustment, but we thought about how to design the space to how people are going to work and the style that’s going to help them.” Kurt Richter and Sally Wills of Cushman negotiated the new lease with landlord JBG Smith Properties (NYSE: JBGS) and Adrian Conforti, senior managing director of… Read the full story from the...
    A New York judge has determined that Cushman & Wakefield, one of the world’s largest real estate firms, broke its own rules to appease the Trump Organization and the former American president’s chronic practice of inflating the value of his properties. Judge Arthur F. Engoron’s surprising assertions were included in his court order on Wednesday, in which he formally directed Cushman & Wakefield to turn over documents to the New York attorney general’s office. New York attorney general Letitia James is investigating the Trump Organization over what prosecutors have determined to be a long-running pattern of hyping the value of golf resorts and buildings in California and New York, as part of a scheme to commit bank and insurance fraud. In his order, the judge indicated he has personally reviewed sensitive documents in the privacy of his court chambers that indicate Cushman & Wakefield employees played along—a damning revelation that could open the global corporation to accusations of conspiring along with the Trump Organization. “This court has reviewed numerous documents in camera demonstrating that C&W was not consistent in...

    New York’s attorney general is seeking additional evidence from real estate company Cushman & Wakefield for its alleged role in helping former President Donald Trump inflate property values. On Friday, Attorney General Letitia James asked a state judge to enforce two subpoenas for evidence her investigators have not yet received from the company. The documents they seek are part of her office’s probe against the Trump Organization, which allegedly faked business records to engage in bank fraud and tax fraud. Investigators want to scrutinize the relationship between the Trump Organization and Cushman & Wakefield to see if the real estate firm was actively or just tacitly involved in an alleged scheme to fiddle with property values. The AG’s office also wants to explore how the real estate company appraised other developments versus howTrump projects were handled. Specifically, the attorney general’s lawyers are examining Cushman & Wakefield’s role in the valuations and financing of Trump’s neo-Gothic skyscraper at 40 Wall Street in Manhattan, as well as his forested Bruce-Wayne-like Seven Springs estate north of the city, and the Pacific Ocean waterfront...

The construction upswing is being driven by heated demand for office space on the part of tech titans — and it appears tech companies won’t soon satisfy their hunger for elbow room. “Silicon Valley tech and life science companies will build on their lead as the bellwethers of the U.S. economy,” stated the report released by Cushman & Wakefield, a commercial real estate firm. “The active requirements have picked up since the thick of the pandemic when many were placed on hold.” One Santana West office building alongside South Winchester Boulevard and Olsen Drive in San Jose, evening view. ( Thane Phelan ) In 2021, new office construction totaled 3.06 million square feet in Santa Clara County, the Cushman & Wakefield Research report stated.

    A VACATIONING family took a cat from their rental home and then wrote a letter to the town's sheriff explaining why they won't be giving it back. James Wakefield, 70, alleged that a mistreated stray named Nubbins was not owned by anyone and that it was fair to take the cat home with him to be taken care of, according to his letter sent to the Sonoma County Sheriff's Office. 5The 10-pound cat is missing her upper lip and most of her tailCredit: Troy Farrell 5Nubbins quickly became popular among Wakefield's family, though she slept in the house's backyardCredit: Troy Farrell In the three-page letter, Wakefield explains that he stole the feline because no one was taking care of her and that she had been hungry, thirsty, and cold when they found her upon arrival at their vacation rental on Railroad Avenue.

    A MONSTER ex-soldier who raped and sexually abused girls and women in a campaign of terror lasting more than four decades has died after catching Covid in prison. Evil Dennis Smalley, from Wigan, was jailed for 25 years in March 2016 after he made raping seven teenagers and women and sexually abusing four other girls "his life's work". 2Serial rapist Dennis Smalley has died after catching Covid in prisonCredit: MEN Media 2Smalley was jailed in 2016 after raping and sexually abusing girls and women across more than four decadesCredit: Alamy He was found guilty of 44 charges - 25 rapes, 16 counts of either indecent assault or indecency with a child, two serious sexual offences and assault occasioning actual bodily harm - some dating as far back as the 1970s.

    BOSTON (CBS) — In the midst of an otherwise raucous celebration following their ALDS-clinching win at Fenway Park last week, the Red Sox came together to belt out a tune together. On Tuesday night, before Game 4 of the ALCS, the singer of that song took the field for a ceremonial first pitch. Calum Scott, who rose to fame singing Robyn’s “Dancing On My Own” on “Britain’s Got Talent,” walked in from center field, alongside Red Sox Hall of Famer Tim Wakefield. (An appropriate choice, considering Wakefield’s knuckleball danced on its own at Fenway Park from 1995-2011.) Both Scott and Wakefield threw out ceremonial first pitches, though neither delivered pitches with quite the pizzazz that Jonathan Papelbon displayed one night earlier. Scott, who’s from England, has certainly ridden the wave of excitement brought about by the Red Sox, sharing videos and tweets involving the Sox singing his song and adopting the hashtag #KeepDancing.
