Midtown parking garage partially collapses

first_img205 East 38th Street (Twitter/FDNY)UPDATED, July 8, 2020, 2:59 p.m.: A five-story parking garage in Murray Hill partially collapsed on Wednesday afternoon.A spokesperson for the city’s Department of Buildings said its inspectors “were called to the scene at 205 East 38th Street, Manhattan, to investigate reports of a partial façade collapse.” The  inspectors found that a 45-by-10-foot section of bricks collapsed from the parapet level of the garage’s façade onto the sidewalk.The agency said one injury was reported and two parked cars were damaged by the falling bricks.The DOB ordered the property owner — which records show is Antarctica Infrastructure Partners — to immediately install a sidewalk shed. The agency’s investigation is still ongoing.ADVERTISEMENTManhattan | 205 E 38th St.FDNY using all hands for a partial building collapse of a 5-story vacant parking garage.— New York City 911 (@NYC_Alerts911) July 8, 2020Antarctica did not immediately respond to a request for comment.The property was issued a violation in September 2019 for failing to correct defects in the elevator, according to DOB’s website. The building currently has seven open violations related to the elevator.The collapse is the second to rock New York City in the last week. A building that housed a Body Elite Gym collapsed in Brooklyn last week, injuring no one.A partial stop-work order had been issued at the Brooklyn property, because a brick wall was “dangerously bulging” over the sidewalk, according to the DOB. That building had violations related to cracks in the building’s facade in November 2019. Agency inspectors and engineers are investigating the cause of that collapse.

Chase Briscoe gets first Xfinity win in inaugural Charlotte road course race

first_imgCONCORD, N.C. – Chase Briscoe made the most of pit strategy that put him out front during Saturday’s inaugural NASCAR Xfinity Series race at the Charlotte Motor Speedway road course.Leading the last 24 of 55 laps in the Drive for the Cure 200 at the challenging 2.28-mile, 17-turn road course — thanks to a pit stop on Lap 26, before the end of Stage 2 — Briscoe held off Justin Marks after the last restart on Lap 45 and took the checkered flag 1.478 seconds ahead of Marks’ No. 42 Chip Ganassi Racing Chevrolet.Driving the No. 98 Ford fielded by Biagi DenBeste Racing in collaboration with Stewart-Haas Racing, Briscoe claimed his first victory in the series. Neither Briscoe nor Marks are playoff contenders, given that neither is running a full Xfinity Series season.RELATED: Full results“This is unreal,” an elated Briscoe said after the race. “I was four seconds off in practice, and my guys stuck behind me and kept working with me. It’s just an honor and privilege to drive a race car and to do it for my hero, (Stewart-Haas co-owner) Tony Stewart, and get a win.“I feel like my career was getting really bad this year, and I needed to get my stock back up, and I just can’t believe it. Thanks to all these fans for coming out — what an awesome crowd! I hope you all enjoyed that race. It’s going to be a good one tomorrow (Sunday’s Monster Energy NASCAR Cup Series event).”WATCH: Briscoe talks winning for SmokeBriscoe took particular pride in winning the inaugural race on the Charlotte road course, which combines an infield section with the traditional oval punctuated by two chicanes.“It’s huge to me,” Briscoe said. “Everybody had to adapt to it and figure it out, and I don’t know that I’m necessarily the best at it, but I felt like I just tried not to hit anything, and this thing hardly has a scratch on it.”Marks, a road-course specialist who is also running Sunday’s Bank of America Roval 400 (2 p.m. ET on NBC, PRN and SiriusXM NASCAR Radio), gave the Charlotte Road Course a favorable review.“These Roval races are always challenging for these series to put on, given the confines of the oval, but I thought it was great,” Marks said. “If we’re going to reinvigorate this fan base and we’re going to regain some positive momentum on our side, we’ve got to think outside the box and do things like this.“So I really applauded the effort everybody made to put this track together. The track itself is challenging … They did a great job of painting the infield, there’s a lot of grip there, and it’s a really challenging course. But you want to challenge this group of drivers. You want it to be hard for them. …“I thought it was great. I thought it was awesome. You’ve got tight corners, and then you’ve got the things wound up to 160 miles an hour on the oval, and that’s a little bit of everything these cars do. That makes it an exciting event.”Pole winner and playoff driver Austin Cindric recovered from a spin in Turn 6 while leading on Lap 14 to finish third in front of Ryan Preece and series leader Christopher Bell, who has advanced to Round 2 of the Playoffs by virtue of his Sept. 21 victory at Richmond.In fact, Cindric and Daniel Hemric had arguably the two fastest cars, but, like Cindric, Hemric made a mistake that cost him a chance to battle for the win.On Lap 45, after the final restart, Hemric blew the frontstretch chicane and paid the prescribed penalty of a full stop in the tri-oval. He fell to 15th and fought his way back to 10th at the finish.Approaching next week’s playoff cutoff race at Dover, Bell is the only driver locked into the second round. With the field to be trimmed from 12 to eight contenders after the Dover race, Cindric is in ninth place, nine points behind Ross Chastain in eighth.In the wide-open competition for the top eight spots, only 12 points separate third place Tyler Reddick from Chastain.Matt Tifft, Cole Custer, Kaz Grala, Tyler Reddick and Hemric completed the top 10 in Saturday’s race.last_img read more

THE MOVIE GUY — ‘The Current War’ can’t live up to hype

first_img“The Current War” premiered at the Toronto International Film Festival two years ago. Critics and film buffs were keeping an eye on the movie because of its juicy historical premise and notable cast, but it fell off the radar when a sex abuse scandal took down producer Harvey Weinstein. Without a powerful studio backing the film, it disappeared into the trash bin of cinematic history.Not so fast.Director Alfonso Gomez-Rajon has been tinkering with the movie during these past two years and found a way to convince newly-founded Studio 101 to bring this forgotten title back into theaters. Was it worth the wait? That probably depends on your predisposition toward the story or the actors that made the film notable in the first place. In “The Current War,” Benedict Cumberbatch plays Thomas Edison as he is working to bring electric lighting to the world. His direct-current form of electricity offers great promise, but his competitor, George Westinghouse (Michael Shannon) favors the alternating-current method. The two inventors lock horns as they promote their proprietary technology while vilifying the competition.This is truly a fascinating story—one that certainly deserves a great movie treatment. Unfortunately, “The Current War” is not that great movie. The story gets bogged down in the details, when it’s the portraits of these titans of industry that need to take center stage. These are fascinating, larger-than-life, quintessential American characters that deserve a much stronger artistic effort.Cumberbatch and Shannon (and Nicholas Hoult playing Nikola Tesla to a lesser extent) are good in their roles, but not so much that they rise above the level of solid competence. These are all acclaimed actors who are known for their abilities to portray great characters and elevate their movies with their on-screen charisma. They simply don’t rise to the occasion this time out. I will give the producers credit for trying to make this into something of an arthouse film. The cinematography and production design are nice, but the constantly-swooping camera is overused, the screenplay is overwritten and the music is frequently intrusive. I appreciate that the filmmakers took a big swing here, but they just didn’t connect in this movie.There are still plenty of things to admire in “The Current War.” I suspect that fans of Cumberbatch and Shannon will enjoy the film, and the real-life story is certainly intriguing. This is simply one of those occasions when a filmmaker’s best intentions don’t quite live up to the hype behind the movie.center_img Movie reviews by Sean, “The Movie Guy,” are each week in The Port Arthur News and seen weekly on KFDM and Fox4.

Indictment: Local man shares intimate photos without other’s permission, knowledge

first_img Owens was arrested June 17 for unlawful disclosure or promotion of intimate visual material, a state jail felony. Bond was set at $30,000 and he bonded out the same day, according to information from the JCSO.An indictment is not a final conviction of guilt; it is only a ruling by the grand jury that allows the district attorney’s office to proceed with a criminal case. More than one photo was sent to the acquaintance, police said.Owens was interviewed in November at the Jefferson County Sheriff’s Office, where he was told he was being accused of unlawful disclosure or promotion of intimate visual material.His response was to ask if the crime was a misdemeanor or felony. The accused said he needed to hire an attorney and asked if he could leave, which he did. Shortly after leaving he called the detective’s office and asked if he was being accused of a felony because he looked online and believed it to be a misdemeanor and was told, yes, it is a felony crime, authorities said.The document states Owens called back a third time, spoke about the relationship between he and the complainant and “began trying to debate the penal code,” insisting that since he and the complainant continued a sexual relationship after the offense (after the video was taken without her knowledge) it negated the offense.The detective obtained a search warrant for information about the Facebook account associated with the images and a warrant to collect subscriber information from a cell phone he believes was used by Owens.The investigation continued for several months during which the person who received the images was interviewed and told police he believed the complainant was afraid of Owens, authorities said.center_img A Nederland man whom law enforcement believe shared intimate photos taken without the other person’s permission was indicted by a Jefferson County grand jury this week.According to a probable cause affidavit, Jason Kurt Owens, 33, sent a still photo from a video of a sex act between him and the complainant that was taken without the complainant’s permission.The image was then sent via Facebook Messenger to another person, who is an acquaintance of the complainant. He reportedly made derogatory remarks that led police to believe the sender was Owens.last_img read more

Bike logos a go-go at London 2012!

first_imgAccording to a release today from the World Federation of the Sporting Goods Industry (WFSGI), bicycle frames at the London 2012 Olympics may carry a brand logo size on both sides of the frame as ‘commercially available and/or used in UCI races’.This agreement on the display of brand logos at the London 2012 Olympics is the successful result of negotiations between the International Olympic Committee (IOC), the World Federation of the Sporting Goods Industry (WFSGI) and the Union Cycliste Internationale (UCI).“We are very happy for the entire bicycle industry to have reached this agreement with the IOC,” said Robbert de Kock, Secretary General of the WFSGI. “The fact that the bicycle brands can use the same logo size as used in UCI races gives them the right visibility.”He added, “It shows that the collaborative efforts between the sporting goods industry and the international sports federations are proving to be successful and efficient.”The rules initially published by the IOC in the ‘Guidelines regarding authorised identifications’ would have allowed for a maximum size of the frame logo of 60cm² only. The new rule is a modification of the size of the brand logo and has to be seen in relation to the existing guidelines, which do still remain valid.In case of doubt or further questions on the branding of frames or bicycle products at the Olympic Games brands are advised to contact the WFSGI.www.wfsgi.org www.uci.ch www.olympic.org Relatedlast_img read more
