Mesa Hills Dr., 1338 N. Zaragoza Rd. and Abundant Living Faith Center at 1000 Valley Crest.Additionally, there is a blood donation center nearly 40 miles outside of El Paso at Las Cruces Mesilla Valley Mall, located at 700 S Telshor Blvd. Las Cruces, New Mexico 88011.How to get there:Ride share service Lyft will offer free rides up to $15 each way to blood donation centers using code ELPRELIEF19.Victim Assistance:The El Paso Community Foundation has set up an online fund to help those impacted by the shooting. The foundation said it will waive administrative fees and pay credit card fees associated with fundraising for the victims, and that it will work with the city of El Paso and the county to disburse funds.The VA of El Paso urged any victims, or family of victims, who are veterans to call the Veteran Crisis Hotline at 1-800-273-8255.Perches Funeral Homes will provide free funerals to the victims of the mass shooting.

What retirement? Michael Stoop rejoins Winkworth after 25 years

first_imgHome » News » Agencies & People » What retirement? Michael Stoop rejoins Winkworth after 25 years previous nextAgencies & PeopleWhat retirement? Michael Stoop rejoins Winkworth after 25 yearsSenior industry figure and franchising expert enticed back to help steer Winkworth expansion.Nigel Lewis4th July 201701,691 Views Veteran industry franchising heavyweight Michael Stoop (pictured, below) has re-joined Winkworth as a consultant 25 years after he left the company.Michael started at Winkworth in 1976 but just five years later was the first person to open a franchised Winkworth office, at a branch in Parsons Green, central London.He then sold it on to a new Winkworth franchisee in 1988, having earlier been made Managing Director of the company.Four years later in 1992 he left Winkworth to join Xperience, the franchising division of Legal & General, where he worked for 22 years before joining Martin & Co as Group Managing Director in 2014, after it bought Xperience for £6 million and then rebranded as The Property Franchise Group.This new group company then brought together Martin & Co as well as the brands Michael brought with him including Ellis & Co, CJ Hole, Parkers and Whitegates, under one umbrella.Last year The Property Franchise Group added online-only agency Ewemove to its portfolio in a deal worth £15m.But in August last year Michael retired from The Property Franchise Group and set up Michael Stoop Property Services with a member of his family, which at Companies House is registered as a property investment company.“It’s almost like coming home,” says Michael.“I’m thoroughly looking forward to returning to Winkworth after such a long time away and hope to provide real value in helping to promote and expand its franchise proposal.“We’re on the look-out for talented, experienced agents with in-depth knowledge of their local market to join our network of franchisees, so I’d like to invite these individuals to get in touch to find out more.”Key roleWinkworth says Michael is now to play a key role in developing other franchise opportunities within the property industry and work closely with the New Franchising team to expand the company’s network.“I’m delighted to welcome Michael back to Winkworth after 25 years,” says Winkworth CEO Dominic Agace (pictured, right).“His experience in the industry, and particularly in franchising, is second to none. I have no doubt that he will add great value to our brand and help to drive Winkworth’s expansion into new and exciting areas nationally.”In May Winkworth announced that it was opening four new offices, taking its total to 97 branches, 60 of which are in London.  Martin & Co Michael Stoop Dominic Agace winkworth July 4, 2017Nigel LewisWhat’s your opinion?

Iconic Fashion: Pencil Skirts

first_imgWhere oh where would we be without The Pencil Skirt? How to look smart in a work environment without succumbing to The Trouser Suit? How to look sexy without flashing acres of flesh? And how to look ladylike? This wardrobe staple had its roots in the ‘hobble’ skirt. Initially designed to impede the wearer so much that they were forced to ‘hobble’, it was the contemporary equivalent of last season’s ‘turban’ look: doomed in fashion reality (and quelle surprise, designed by a man, Paul Poiret). The first trendsetter for this look was Katharine Wright, sister of the Wright brothers, who tied a rope around her skirts to stop them flapping about in her brothers’ new airborne invention – practical beginnings for a popular style considering women were still hoiking themselves in with corsets. Pencil skirts returned with a vengeance during the late 1940s and ‘50s: they were considered the ‘practical’ option in a world without trousers. So where does this leave the current pencil-skirt wearer? She is a woman (probably), and proud of it – this is not a style that allows for half measures. She does not cycle (for how does one get one’s legs over the saddle?) and is hopefully wearing heels (never wear flats with a pencil skirt unless you want to look like an overweight hobbit). A bit of Googling also alerted me to its pre-eminence in the fetish market. Nice. Despite this, the pencil skirt is swiftly becoming a byword for high-powered office-wear: this is a lot of effort to go to on a regular basis. But why should this style be restricted to the imaginary fashionista I just described? This is actually the most flattering style of skirt for any shape, guaranteed to accentuate curves for those lucky enough to have them, and create a voluptuous illusion for those who don’t. Pencil skirts tap into a million male fantasies.It seems the designers agree. Hundreds of models minced down the a/w runways in high-waisted, calf-skimming skirts, and looked damned good for it too. Who are we to question Yves Saint Laurent or Hermès? Patents, jewel colours, slight fetish undertones – a pencil skirt will work all these trends and give maximum impact. Even this season’s make-up evokes the pencil skirt and all that comes with it, so shift the Ugg boots, slick on some red lipstick, and be a lady.By Josie Thaddeus-Johnslast_img read more


first_imgOften, I feel the country is going mad, continually trying to buy on price, rather than on quality.With the public’s obsession in buying everything as cheaply as they can, we are shopping ourselves out of jobs. More and more factories are closing down in the UK. And the supermarkets hold much of the responsibility for this insane rush to lower prices. In reality, many of our remaining factories are importers – and often only assembly plants at best – as they source their products from overseas. If we cannot create jobs for everyone, where is the money coming from to buy the goods?I have always said I do very little wholesale and never intend to try to supply supermarkets. I feel that those chasing that business have a tendency towards volume addiction. But why should I borrow or use my money to put in extra plant – and even buildings – to provide products for someone else? That would mean I take the risk and they take the profits. Once you get hooked, I suppose it’s like riding a bicycle – once you stop pedalling, you fall off.Recently, I read in The Times that scientists claim that, within 20 years, there will be smart drugs that will make us think faster, improve memory and reduce tiredness. It reminds me of that old song, Why was I Born So Soon? Gosh, how I would love to have that pill.There is no doubt about it, the public sector is the place to be if you want short working hours, high pay, little stress and high pensions. Public sector workers across the board take 30% more days off sick than private sector workers, according to statistics.Then, their trade unions claim it is the extra stress they work under. I call it skiving off.Our MD, Neville, runs the firm without much help from me. When he tells me his staff problems, I confess I could not deal with the utter stupidity of the employment rules, which the idiots in government keep introducing. They will inevitably lead to unemployment. More time is spent on trying to remove a poorly performing member of staff with a bad attitude than on trying to improve the business.The total unfairness of it is that, if a member of staff does not like my face, they are at liberty to say, “I think you are ugly and I am not going to work for you.” This, I feel, is probably justified, as I don’t look like Cary Grant.But just think what would happen if I said to a member of staff, “I don’t like your attitude. You never smile and you depress everyone around you, so you must leave and find employment where you can be happy.” I would be in an industrial tribunal before you could say “goodbye”. And they call that fair? Unemployment is a bit like old age; it just keeps getting closer. nlast_img read more
