“Over the weekend, a rep said Anne was in stable condition but that information was inaccurate. She still remained in critical condition, slipping into a coma after the accident,” a doorman said on Monday. Heche spoke to CNN in a statement. “She has a significant lung injury requiring mechanical ventilation and burns requiring surgery. She is currently being treated at the Grossman Burn Center.”

Earlier Monday, CNN reported that Heche was being investigated for misdemeanor DUI and hit-and-run charges, according to LAPD officer Annie Hernandez.

Investigators obtained a warrant for a blood test on the day of the incident. They are still waiting for those results, Hernandez said. Once the investigation is complete, the case will be referred to the LA City District Attorney’s Office, Hernandez added.

Heche’s rep told CNN she hasn’t yet been able to meet with investigators due to her injuries.

Meanwhile, friends of the woman whose home was destroyed in the crash say she “narrowly escaped physical injury”.

Lynne Mishele was inside her residence where Heche crashed and a fire broke out, officials told CNN. Neighbors John and Jennifer Durand started a GoFundMe for Mishele to help him rebuild his life.
In the description of Fundraisingthe Durands state that Mishele has lost everything except “a few damaged sentimental effects”.

“Lynne lives with her beautiful puppies Bree and Rueban, and turtle Marley in Mar Vista’s home which was destroyed this week by a car driving into the house at high speed, setting the house on fire,” GoFundMe says. “Lynne and her family narrowly escaped physical injury, and we are very, very grateful for that. The house, however, was completely burnt down.”

Roy Morgen, another neighbor of Mishele, told CNN affiliate KCAL/KCBS that Heche’s car stopped about “two feet from where she was sitting.”

“She was very lucky,” Morgen said of Mishele. “She’s in shock…it hasn’t touched her yet. There’s nothing left in the house. Everything’s been destroyed.”

“Lynne lost her entire life of possessions, memorabilia, all the equipment for her business,” GoFundMe says. “With the help of firefighters, she was able to remove some damaged personal effects from the wreckage. Everything else was gone.”

CNN has reached out to Mishele and the Durands for comment.

Heche suffered “severe burns and has a long recovery ahead of him,” a source previously told CNN. “His team and his family are still trying to figure out what led to the accident.”

Where is Imran now?

HONESTY or sincerity is a facet of moral character that evokes positive and virtuous attributes such as integrity, sincerity, candor, including candor of conduct, as well as freedom from lying, cheating and flight.

Honesty also involves being trustworthy, loyal, fair and sincere. In both developed and developing countries, the majority of politicians are honest and trustworthy.

Whereas in countries like ours, the majority of politicians are dishonest and unreliable. In our country, politicians have been dishonest.

Imran Khan described himself as honest, truthful and trustworthy, but during his reign, like other politicians, he proved otherwise.

The recent verdict of the Election Commission of Pakistan (ECP) reflects the dishonesty of Imran Khan.

Now the question arises, whom should the nation trust? Recently, a three-member bench of the ECP led by Chief Election Commissioner Sikander Sultan Raja announced the verdict in a case filed by PTI founding member Akbar S Babar, which had been pending since November 14, 2014.

The verdict of the ECP was reserved on June 21, 2022. After eight long years, the Electoral Commission, in a unanimous verdict, ruled that the PTI had undoubtedly received prohibited funding and issued a notice to the party asking why funds should not be confiscated.

Is the simple confiscation of illegal funds enough as a punishment? Shouldn’t the courts disqualify PTI President Imran Khan?

The electoral commission found the PTI guilty of the foreign financing scandal. The party received funds from prohibited sources.

It has secured funding from 34 foreign nationals and 351 overseas-based companies. The PTI seized eight accounts but concealed 13 and did not mention three.

A notice is sent to PTI explaining why the funds should not be forfeited. Form 1 submitted by Imran Khan was found to be grossly inaccurate.

In the written verdict, the commission noted that the Party had knowingly and deliberately received funding from Wootton Cricket Limited, operated by business tycoon Arif Naqvi.

The party was a voluntary recipient of the prohibited money of $2,121,500. PTI has received donations through PTI Canada Corporation and PTI UK Public Limited Company.

From both companies, the amounts received in its accounts from PTI Pakistan are prohibited and in violation of Pakistani laws.

Pakistan Tehreek-e-Insaf has also knowingly and voluntarily received donations from Bristol Engineering Services (a company based in the United Arab Emirates), E-Planet Trustees (a private company registered in the Cayman Islands), SS Marketing Manchester (a private company based in in the UK), PTI USA LLC-6160 and PTI USA LLC-5975 which have been banned and in violation of Pakistani laws.

The party also received donations from Australia’s Dunpec Limited and Pakistani companies Anwar Brothers, Zain Cotton and Young Sports, which again broke the law.

The PTI had been recognized as the beneficiary of donations made by Romita Shetty, an Indian-born businesswoman based in the United States, which violated the law.

PTI Pakistan, through fundraising campaigns by PTI USA LLC-6160 and PTI USA LLC-5975, received donations from 34 foreign nationals and 351 overseas-based companies.

The collection of donations and contributions from foreign nationals and companies is prohibited and in violation of Pakistani laws.

The PTI failed to mention three accounts that were also managed by senior party leadership.

The non-disclosure and concealment of 16 bank accounts by the PTI is gross misconduct on the part of the PTI leadership and a violation of Article 17(3) of the Constitution.

PTI only owned eight accounts before the Commission and declared 13 accounts unknown.

Data obtained from the State Bank of Pakistan (SBP) reveals that the 13 accounts disavowed by PTI were opened and managed by senior management and management of PTI at central and provincial levels.

PTI Chairman Imran Khan submitted Form I for five years between 2008 and 2013, which was found to be grossly inaccurate based on financial statements obtained by the PCE from SBP and other documents available on file .

According to Article 17(3), each political party must account for the source of its funds in accordance with the law.

In accordance with Article 6(3), any contribution made, directly or indirectly, by a foreign government, a multinational or a public or private company, a business, a commercial or professional association is prohibited and the parties cannot accept contributions and donations only from individuals. .

The matter falls under section 6(3) of the Political Parties Ordinance 2002.

A notice is issued to the defending party pursuant to Rule 6 of the OPP stating why the above prohibited funds cannot be forfeited.

The office is also responsible for taking any other action under the law in light of this Commission order, including forwarding the case to the federal government.

For five consecutive years, PTI President Imran Khan has submitted Form I and signed a certificate that does not match the accounting information.

He was forced to conclude that Imran Khan failed to fulfill his obligations according to Pakistani laws.

PTI President Imran Khan, for five years under scrutiny, filed submissions that were grossly inaccurate and misguided.

Even during the review and hearing by the ECP, the PTI continued to conceal and withhold full disclosure of the source of its funds.

Our leaders often think that lies breed contempt and guilt, but they do much more.

They foster relationships, build trust, destroy social networks, create social networks, make people more creative, and influence how often others lie.

Will the Supreme Court condemn him to a lifetime disqualification like former Prime Minister Nawaz Sharif?

Will he accept the decision of the Honorable Court? After the ECP verdict on the foreign funding scandal, what will be the fate of the PTI and Imran Khan? Where are Imran Khan and PTI now?

Mexican actress Salma Hayek is very happy. After a pandemic that has lasted several times, this week its New project as producer, the “Santa Evita” series, which he assures will allow K to enter esoteric history in a “different and emotional” way The mutilated corpse of Eva Peronwhich reflects “men’s obsession with controlling and sometimes subjugating women through their bodies.”

“What happens to the body that has been lost, appeared, disappeared for nearly 20 years is an enigma. It’s a ‘thriller’ centered on the body after you die”The series is told about the performer and businesswoman, who focuses on the female figure “full of contradictions”, as dead and yet “full of life”.

https://content.jwplatform.com/previews/qLshxOnR-buQgiLVC

“Santa Evita”, available on Star+, is a story based on the novel of the same title by the Argentinian author Thomas Eloy MartinezPublished in 1995 and inspired by the death of Argentina’s first woman from cancer at the age of 33 – just seven decades ago today – and the preservation, then removal and concealment of her corpse by soldiers opposed to Peronism.

A death “used in a thousand ways”

Hayek, along with series executive producer Pepe Tamez, both of production company Ventanarossa, pointed to the “merit” of the “wonderful” book.Take such a well-known character and find a very original way to tell the secret“The story of who was the second wife of President Juan Domingo Perón (1946-1955 and 1973-1974), interpreted by the Uruguayan Natalia Orio, in a series directed by Rodrigo García and produced and co-produced by Nonstop.

“This incident of his corpse shows us in different ways Men’s obsession with controlling and subduing women through their bodies sometimes“, she underlines, convinced that in “Santa Evita”, composed of seven chapters and accompanied by a cast, which, among others, figures like Ernesto Alterio, Francesc Orella and Dario Grandinetti, “varieties of passion and “control” over an “indomitable” woman.

“It’s so interesting to see how he explains so many different points of view on this. It’s also how everyone uses what they can for their political agenda. Use this death in a thousand ways and also how This Woman Is A Danger After Death Because Her Spirit Has Surely Made People Feel That Impossible Things Are Possible“, he underlines.

On July 26, 1952, Argentina was shocked by the death of Evita, whose charisma and passionate speech, and her image, often dressed in the clothes of certain firms that idolized her, had already made her an icon.

In 1955, the army which overthrew Péron, in a desire to erase all traces of Peronism, They stole the body and after a horrific journey it was hidden away for 16 years to prevent it from being worshipped.It was not until 1971 that he was made a widower during his long exile in Madrid and for 46 years he rests in the cemetery of La Recoleta in Buenos Aires.

life and death

But in addition to her death, the series also delves into how Evita, known as the “standard bearer of the humble” for her speech and her measures in favor of the working classes, forged her legend. Made because she was born in a rural area. from the province of Buenos Aires She moved to the capital as a teenager to work as an actress, met Peron and together, already in power, they made history.

,The peoples of Latin America won’t just worship himBut he would also be proud that this series is made with the jewels of our literature and with this wonderful team that we have assembled”, comments the protagonist of films like “Frida” (2002), for which She received an Oscar nomination for the best actress.

The COVID-19 pandemic has forced production deadlines on the series, the premiere of which is “a highly anticipated moment” for Hayek.

,Because we were about to start, the pandemic caught up with us, we started, it caught up with us again… It hasn’t been easy this time around, and the worst thing is that what makes you even more desperate is that we’re so proud of the show that we can’t wait for it to come out.

Elizabeth Hurley can’t seem to do anything without looking absolutely delicious and we’re all the richer for it. The Austin Powers: The International Mystery Man The star is attending the Glorious Goodwood racing event in Qatar this week, and she shared a video of herself at the popular event on Instagram. Judging from what we can see in the video, it’s a good week to have Goodwood on your schedule.

The Bedazzled The star posted the video on Wednesday, starting with a shot of Elizabeth Hurley’s gorgeous smile. Between shots of the runners and the crowd, we see Hurley in a brightly colored dress with a plunging neckline. The video is accompanied by “Sway (Quien Sera)” by Perez Prado and Rosemary Clooney. You can watch the video below.

Technically named Qatar Goodwood Festival, but more commonly known as Glorious Goodwood, the event attended by Elizabeth Hurley is a five-day affair established over 200 years ago. Goodwood is considered one of Britain’s premier racing events, with the competition enjoying a unique atmosphere and the track itself proving a more complex challenge for its riders.

Besides being a model and actress, Elizabeth Hurley is also a businesswoman with her own eponymous swimwear line. Wearing so many hats might explain why we haven’t seen Hurley on screen as often as we used to. She played Marvel villain Morgan le Fay in Runaways and before that played Queen Helena on the soap opera E! The Royals. But since then, his appearances have been relatively rare. Hurley made a pilot called Welcome to Georgia for CBS, but the network passed it on.

Hopefully, in the not too distant future, we’ll see Elizabeth Hurley in the romantic fantasy horror feature. The piper. Hurley plays American schoolteacher Liz Haines, who begins to have dark and disturbing visions after she and her daughter move to Hamelin, Germany. Antoine Waller (An American werewolf in Paris) is starring and directing the film, but it’s unclear when we’ll be able to see it. The film packaged production late 2020, with no premiere date yet released. Cyprus time reports The piper should be released in theaters this year, but without giving a specific date.

In the 90s, Elizabeth Hurley first became known to the public for the company she held. She was dating Hugh Grant, just as the actor’s name became famous in the United States after his appearance in Four weddings and a funeral. Hurley even stayed with Grant after the English actor made headlines for being arrested in 1995 for hiring a sex worker, although they split five years later. Last year of Marc Maron WTF podcast (via The daily mail), Grant said he did it because he was in a bad mood after seeing a screening of one of his films. Considering the woman whose company he was risking, it must have been a really bad mood.

Its specialty flavors are available for pre-order in limited quantities. A must for donut lovers! 🍩

The first time Leslie Grana made donuts from scratch was also around the same time she started a donut business.

The trained professional chef and Filipino immigrant had worked in the kitchens of prominent restaurants in downtown Vancouver as a sous chef, but switched gears to being a stay-at-home parent after she and his wife took in Twins.

“One day I said, ‘I’m going to have a donut shop in Vancouver,'” Grana explains.

The problem: if Grana was comfortable preparing starters and savory dishes, she was not a pastry chef by training.

But Grana knew donuts and knew that Vancouver could use another option in the category that would feature more unusual ingredients.

The idea for what is now his one-woman donut business, Twin donutsbegan to form.

On a tour of her donut-making station in the communal kitchen of Burnaby’s YVR Prep precinct, Grana tells me how she started making her sparkly fried yeast dough orbs filled with avocado cream or mousse. of strawberry cheesecake with colorful toppings.

While one of Grana’s first jobs in Canada was working the first shift at a Tim Hortons, her donut reference point dates back to her roots in the Philippines and a popular chain called J.Co. Known for flavors like “Cheese Me Up” and “Avocado Dicaprio,” Grana used the eccentricity of the J.Co brand as a touchstone when she applied her own understanding of flavor to a treat like a donut.

In January 2022, Grana was faced with returning to work but, instead, she couldn’t let go of her donut shop idea.

Inspired by a viral video of a New York woman who started a freelance business making donuts in her kitchen, Grana got to work.

She taught herself how to make a basic, simple, not-too-sweet dough, then started creating fillings.

Grana, who describes herself as not a fan of desserts, says most of her donut-eating experiences in Vancouver were unsatisfactory – the donuts were too sweet and one-note.

The chef says she wants her Twins Donuts to be the kind of treat you want to eat from start to finish because it’s not just a pure sugar experience, but a pleasure of textures and flavors.

“The best donut I’ve ever had”

The first donut created by Grana was the Leche/Dulce Flan, featuring a treat familiar to many, including the Philippines. The donut has a dulce de leche filling – sweetened condensed milk reduced to a texture close to caramel – and a piece of miniature caramel flan on top, with powdered sugar.

To launch Twins Donuts, Grana made a batch and offered them for sale on a neighborhood social media group.

His first customer told him “This is the best donut I’ve ever had.”

That was all Grana needed to get started. She set out to develop more flavors and opened up to pre-orders through social media. Capping his capacity has helped control costs and alleviate safety concerns by working in small batches from his home kitchen. Things were going so well that Grana soon realized that Twins Donuts could not continue from home; she wanted the business to grow, but she had to be in a commercial kitchen.

After reaching out to numerous facilities, Grana connected with YVR Prep, which launched in late 2017 as a food business incubator and shared kitchen space for local entrepreneurs. She had exhausted all her options, but was immediately welcomed by the facility, who accepted her on board and helped her get started – in fact, one of YVR Prep’s defining characteristics in the industry is that ‘She can offer a full range of support to new and growing food businesses.

“The hardest part is making it work,” admits Grana, who arrives early in the morning at the 24-hour police station to have her donuts made on collection days.

Emphasis is on the quality of the ingredients, the special flavors

Twins Donuts are all made to order the same day, and every component is made from scratch – every topping, every icing, and, of course, every fluffy, golden donut itself. And it’s Grana that does all the work, using carefully selected ingredients and being mindful of waste, resulting in an artisan-style product that inherently cannot compete on price with what it is. are in those little lockers at Timmies. This is also why, at this stage of the business, she cannot offer gluten-free or vegan donuts – alone in a communal kitchen, she has to focus her work on a single product and no guarantee of cross-contamination.


Twins Donuts are also superior in taste and quality to your average large donut chain, with flavors like a Nutella glazed donut with a Nutella cream cheese filling sprinkled with nuts on top, or the Avocado Krema, which includes a lightly sweetened creamy avocado filling. and white chocolate filling. Grana says avocado is often used in desserts in the Philippines, and she’s excited to introduce Metro Vancouverites to this use of the ingredient.

She’s already hard at work dreaming up other flavors, like mango, matcha and an apple-cinnamon that’s already in development.

“All I know is I make flavors. That’s all I need, my flavors and my batter.”

At present, Twins Donuts remains a pre-order and pickup operation, but Grana plans to sell at farmers’ markets and at community events to expand its reach. After that, who knows where this busy wife, mother of twins and owner of a donut shop may go – except upstairs.

For small businesses, the crisis presents an opportunity: Louis DeCuzzi https://priscillasfriends.org/for-small-businesses-the-crisis-presents-an-opportunity-louis-decuzzi/ Wed, 20 Jul 2022 09:08:00 +0000 https://priscillasfriends.org/for-small-businesses-the-crisis-presents-an-opportunity-louis-decuzzi/ BRUNSWICK, Ohio – As a small business owner in Northeast Ohio, I understand that every crisis brings opportunity.

BRUNSWICK, Ohio – As a small business owner in Northeast Ohio, I understand that every crisis brings opportunity. After overcoming the challenges of the past two years, small business owners came away with clear ideas about what is needed to support small businesses in the future. We also realized the true meaning of community, coming together to navigate headwinds.

According to the United States Small Business Administration (SBA), small businesses account for 99% of all American businesses. We are the backbone of our country’s economy – accounting for 65.1% of net new job creation since 2000.

I’m proud to join more than 2,500 small business owners — including nearly 150 from Ohio — who are bringing energy and strength to Washington, DC this week for the Goldman Sachs 10,000 Small Businesses Summit. In addition to hearing from high-level business leaders, we will meet with members of Congress to advocate for policies that reflect the modern economy in which we operate.

At the top of our political agenda is a call to modernize the SBA, which has not been reauthorized since 2000. I don’t need to tell you how business practice has transformed over the past 22 years. The SBA’s mission and policies should reflect these changes.

The truth is, small business owners are always looking to innovate. Look no further than apps for starting new businesses last year. While we were still in the throes of the pandemic, applications reached a record 5.4 million nationwide — a 53% jump from the days before the 2019 shutdown.

I say this with optimism, even as the headwinds of inflation, supply chain disruptions and labor shortages continue to shake our balance and complicate our balance sheets. A new investigation graduates of Goldman Sachs 10,000 Small Businesses business training program found that while a majority of owners (65%) remain optimistic, these challenges continue to take their toll.

For example, in this same survey, 78% of small business owners said the economy had deteriorated over the past three months, and 88% of small business owners said that broader economic trends – like inflation and supply chain issues – had a negative impact on their business.

In my business, I have made several adjustments to be competitive during the pandemic. As a manufacturer of electric off-road vehicles, having to work remotely for a period of time and the closure of some of our suppliers has obviously taken a toll on our business. Rather than closing, we planned ahead and took deposits for later delivery.

Louis DeCuzzi is the president of DRR USA, a small woman-owned company based in Brunswick, Ohio, which manufactures electric mountain bikes.

We were able to plan ahead and sustain our business thanks in large part to the support of Goldman Sachs 10,000 Small Businesses. Our company, like the majority of small business owners I know, was unable to access initial PPP loans because we did not have a relationship with a major bank. Fortunately, Goldman Sachs 10,000 Small Businesses set up a program with smaller banks that eventually allowed us to access PPP grants. It relieved payroll stress even when we had no sales, allowed us to look ahead during tough times, and kept us going.

Collectively, Goldman Sachs 10,000 Small Businesses graduates represent more than $17 billion in revenue and 245,000 jobs. As we travel to Washington, we hope policymakers will heed our call to revitalize the SBA to access the capital needed to spur our growth, to help our employees obtain safe and affordable child care, and to ensure that the government honors its promises to open up its federal contracting opportunities to more small businesses owned by women and minorities.

Join us in calling on Congress to use this crisis as an opportunity to help small businesses chart a successful path to near-term economic recovery and beyond.

GEMMA Collins looked amazing as she put on a glamorous look for a fancy day out.

The former Towie star, 41, teamed a pink bandana with a fresh white mini dress at the Silver Leys Polo Club in Hertfordshire.

Her vibrant Christian Dior bag matched her eye-catching headpiece perfectly, and she finished her look with mirrored shades.

Gemma was joined by her teenage nephew Hayden and enjoyed champagne and great food while watching the horses.

The businesswoman called it a “wonderful day” and couldn’t believe how much Hayden was growing.

A true embodiment of “good vibes only”, Gemma has also charged herself with crystals banishing negativity.

Last week we revealed that Gemma had banked £2.5m so far this year.

She has just signed a £1million contract to be the face of a New Look clobber range.

And she’s also campaigning for Walkers crisps – worth an extra £1million.

His work in the media, including advertisements for airline Wizz Air, fast food giant Burger King, condom maker Durex and clothing brand Boohoo, as well as money from his own clothing brand him brought in another £500,000 in 2022.

The jaw-dropping total comes to £18,248 per day.

An industry source revealed: “Gemma is a hot property and companies are scrambling to list it.

“At the rate she is going, she could still be worth a few million pounds by the end of the year.”

Another insider revealed that the GC can charge up to £50,000 for a single day’s work.

We unveiled Gemma’s New Look collaboration earlier this year.

Another insider told us, “Gemma is a big company and when New Look approached her for a collaboration, they were willing to pay big bucks.

“The deal Gemma has signed makes her the main celebrity ambassador for New Look and will also see her launch her own collection.

“Gemma’s contract with New Look will be long term which is how she will easily earn over £1million.”

The Walkers publicity gig was made famous by Match Of The Day host Gary Lineker, who was the face of the snack company from 1995, doing over 150 commercials.

But since former England striker Gary has taken on more of a supporting role, Gemma and other celebrities have entered the fold.

An advertising insider said: “Gemma is so sought after by businesses because she is both glamorous and down to earth, and people seem to really connect with her.

“It’s a perfect combination for big brands that need to appeal to a mass market – just like Gary has for over two decades.”

A protege of Warren Buffett fends for herself https://priscillasfriends.org/a-protege-of-warren-buffett-fends-for-herself/ Sat, 16 Jul 2022 09:00:11 +0000 https://priscillasfriends.org/a-protege-of-warren-buffett-fends-for-herself/ “He loved when people didn’t put him on a pedestal,” she said.

“He loved when people didn’t put him on a pedestal,” she said.

In 2013, when Ms. Britt Cool married Scott Cool, a corporate lawyer, Mr. Buffett walked her down the aisle, knowing she had lost her father. When she told him in late 2019 that she planned to start her own business, Mr. Buffett backed him up. He told her, Ms Britt Cool said, that it reminded him of when he parted ways with his mentor Benjamin Graham – the famous value investor – in the 1950s to pursue his own career.

Drew Van Pelt, former chief executive of Larson-Juhl, a Berkshire-owned frame maker, said Ms Britt Cool had cleverly positioned Kanbrick as the antithesis of private equity, just as Mr Buffett did with Berkshire .

“The #1 reason people don’t want to sell to PE is: Who are these jerks? said Mr. Van Pelt, a business school classmate of Ms. Britt Cool whom she recruited from Larson-Juhl. “It’s the complete opposite of his style.”

In 2020, the company took a majority stake in Thirty-One Gifts, a company that sells bags and household items through a network of sales advisors. Cindy Monroe, the company’s founder, had been following Ms. Britt Cool’s turnaround at Pampered Chef and was hoping for something similar.

In June, Kanbrick closed its second deal by buying a majority stake in Marine Concepts, which has patented a system that simplifies the process of covering boats.

Ms. Britt Cool, a firm believer in the power of relationships, also builds connections – and perhaps a pipeline of future acquisition targets – with entrepreneurs by hosting training programs and events. In 2020, his company launched an acceleration program called Build With Kanbrick, inviting midsize business leaders to apply for a three-month business expansion course.
