In March, Mr. Imbesi listed a different property at the mouth of the Bal Harbour Yacht Club marina for $65 million. “He’s got a clear view of the Bal Harbour yacht basin,” said Mr. Imbesi, who said his son Tony Imbesi was instrumental in developing the site.

Durant played every minute in the 114-108 victory in Brooklyn that gave the Nets a three-games-to-two series lead. And Durant can simply drive by Antetokounmpo with his superior foot speed (and he occasionally shoots over him too). Even if Bryant can stay with Durant on the initial dribble, Durant can simply shoot over him. Durant shot only 20 for 53 combined in Games 3 and 4, for 58 points. The player who has had the most success against Durant this series is Tucker, who has used his strength to push Durant off his comfortable spots.

Ned Beatty, the indelible character actor whose first film role as a genial vacationer brutally raped by a backwoodsman in 1972′s “Deliverance” launched him on a long, prolific and accomplished career, has died. After years in regional theater, Beatty was cast in “Deliverance” as Bobby Trippe, the happy-go-lucky member of a male river-boating party terrorized by backwoods thugs. Between movies, Beatty worked often in TV and theater. Ned Thomas Beatty was born in 1937 in Louisville, Ky., and raised in Lexington, where he joined the Protestant Disciples of Christ Christian Church. Boorman told him the role was cast, but changed his mind after seeing Beatty audition.

After 12 consecutive years in power, and another three before that, the country’s longest serving prime minister will no longer be its leader. Netanyahu did not take his defeat lightly, promising Israel's enemies that the Likud party would return to power in his final speech as prime minister. After losing the next election, he left politics, only to return in 2002 as foreign minister and then as prime minister in 2009. A man walks by an election campaign billboard showing Israel's Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu in Tel Aviv, Israel, in April 2019.

“In international relations, all politics is personal,” Biden said during a visit to South Korea in 2013. Just after touching down in the U.K. Wednesday, Biden told service members at a Royal Air Force station in Mildenhall that he’d visited “well over 100 countries” as a senator and vice president. Biden offered: “Possibilities.”“Personal relationships are the only vehicle by which you build trust,” Biden told Xi two years later when he returned for more meetings in Beijing. There’s a risk, though, of focusing on the personal at the expense of the substance. But Biden has often told the story of his last-known face-to-face meeting with Putin, telling him bluntly that he “has no soul.”“We understand each other,” Biden says Putin replied.

Unlike a typical SPAC deal, Pershing Square Tontine wouldn’t merge with Universal. In another departure from the typical SPAC structure, Pershing Square Tontine investors won’t vote on the deal, but they will have an opportunity to redeem their shares at about $20 apiece. In a sign of investor disappointment, Pershing Square Tontine shares fell 12% Friday to $22.06, though they are still trading above their $20 July 2020 IPO price. Pershing Square Tontine will remain a public company, but no longer a SPAC. In the case of Mr. Ackman’s SPAC, much of Friday’s slide was caused by the firm’s high valuation, investors said.

With the Democratic primary just weeks away and polls showing several candidates in or near the lead, the anticipation going into Wednesday night’s debate was fairly high. In the second hour of the debate, the moderator gave each of the eight candidates the opportunity to ask one question of a competitor. Four of the contenders targeted Eric Adams, the Brooklyn borough president and a front-runner in the race. Adams has said he’s carried a gun to church, he has asked off-duty officers to carry guns to church,” said Maya Wiley, a former counsel to Mayor Bill de Blasio. “He’s said he will carry a gun as mayor and maybe even ditch his detail.

The public transit worker who killed nine people at a rail yard in San Jose, California, had been accused of having violent outbursts and of threatening violence by a former girlfriend and his former wife, according to interviews with the women and court documents. The shooter was identified as Samuel Cassidy, an employee of the Santa Clara Valley Transportation Authority (VTA), law enforcement sources said. An ex-girlfriend of Cassidy, who asked to remain anonymous, told NBC News the two dated for six months in 2008. They had met on while he lived in San Jose and she lived in San Mateo. A history of anger and violence toward women is something experts say is not uncommon to find in the history of mass shooters.

The screenwriter of an upcoming film about Flamin’ Hot Cheetos defended the project on Tuesday, after a Los Angeles Times report challenged the central character’s claim to have invented the snack product. He is a guy who should remain the face of Flamin’ Hot Cheetos.”Montañez has been claiming credit for Flamin’ Hot Cheetos for years, in books, interviews and motivational speeches. Director Eva Longoria is set to begin production this summer on “Flamin’ Hot,” based on his life story. The story attributed Flamin’ Hot Cheetos to an entirely separate group of Frito-Lay employees in the Upper Midwest. “There was no talk of, ‘You guys are writing a movie about a guy who had nothing to do with Flamin’ Hot Cheetos.

McCarthy Announces Opposition to Jan. 6 Commission The top House Republican said he could not support an inquiry into the attack on the U.S. Capitol by a pro-Trump mob because it would not examine unrelated “political violence” associated with the left. Representative Rashida Tlaib urged President Biden to end his support of Israel amid its bombing campaign against Hamas. In rejecting the commission, Mr. McCarthy essentially threw one of his key deputies, Representative John Katko of New York, under the bus in favor of shielding Mr. Trump and the party from further scrutiny. Ms. Cheney has said the commission should have a narrow scope, and that Mr. McCarthy should testify about a phone call with Mr. Trump during the riot.

Similar to his presidential campaign, Yang has proposed a number of innovations, including a basic income of $2,000 a year to 500,000 poor residents. “To move forward, we cannot continue being derailed by the dangerous and violent behavior in our city,” Adams told reporters on Monday in Manhattan. “People aren’t going to come back to work on mass transit if they’re going to get mugged,” said Kathryn Wylde, who heads the Partnership for New York City, a prominent business organization.

Wednesday will be the first time he has hosted Senate Republican leader Mitch McConnell and House of Representatives Republican leader Kevin McCarthy in the Oval Office. Just before the White House meeting, McCarthy presided over the ousting of Representative Liz Cheney from the House Republican leadership team because of her refusal to back former President Donald Trump’s false claim that he won the 2020 election, not Biden. The White House said Biden hoped to focus on areas where the two sides could work together rather than on areas of disagreement. “He’s invited bipartisan leaders to come to the White House to have a discussion about where we can find common ground and how we can work together,” Psaki said.

School leaders may be acting in the interest of safety, but advocates say that removing students from in-person classes because of their behavior may violate those students’ rights, especially if they have disabilities. The online classes that schools created to respond to the pandemic have given schools “plausible deniability,” Smith Howard said. The first day of in-person classes was Monday but, at this point, Mcleish said, she’s not interested. His high school near Reading, Pa., has not allowed him to attend in-person classes due to concerns about his behavior. But he doesn’t think he’s getting the support he needs for learning and other disabilities in virtual classes.

(Reuters) - When Melinda French Gates asked her husband, Microsoft Corp co-founder Bill Gates, to let her co-author the 2013 annual letter about their foundation, the conversation blew up into a fight. FILE PHOTO: Melinda Gates (L) speaks to Oprah Winfrey on stage during a taping of her TV show in the Manhattan borough of New York City, New York, U.S., February 5, 2019. In the next year’s letter, Melinda wrote about one of three myths that “block progress for the poor,” while Bill handled the other two. The extent of Melinda’s impact will likely be determined in part by what happens to Bill Gates’ fortune, estimated by Forbes at around $130.5 billion.

The pastor of a Roman Catholic church in Wisconsin has been leading his flock astray by urging them to shun the Covid-19 vaccine. When NBC News reached out to Altman for comment, a woman who said she worked at St. James said “he’s not having any interviews.”“God bless you,” she added before hanging up. Altman is not the only Roman Catholic priest to speak out against Covid-19 vaccines. “That said, many bishops are in a bind because many of their parishioners believe Covid is a hoax,” Steidl said. In either case, parishioners probably would have followed their own ideological inclinations regardless of what the priest told them.”Friends of Father James Altman Facebook page.
