Share via Shortlink The priciest property to go into contract last week was a townhouse at 31 Strong Place in Cobble Hill. The five-bedroom, six-bathroom home was last listed at $6.25 million. The renovated Federal-style townhouse has retained some of its historic details, and also comes with an expansive backyard.The most expensive condo unit to go into contract was at One Prospect Park West, which has seen a flurry of activity in recent months. The three-bedroom unit was last asking $4.375 million. If it closes for that price, the deal would pencil out to above $2,000 per square foot, breaking a record for the neighborhood.Contact Amy Plitt Full Name* Email Address* 31 Strong Place and 1 Prospect Park West (Photos via Google Maps; 1 Prospect Park West)Brooklyn’s luxury market saw a slight increase in volume in the first week of February, with 20 contracts inked for a total of $65.6 million, according to Compass’ weekly report. The report tracks contracts signed on properties asking $2 million or more.That’s an uptick from the previous week’s 17 deals totaling $51.7 million, and even an improvement over a similar period in 2020, when just 14 deals were inked.In keeping with the borough’s luxury sale trends from 2020, the deals were split evenly between townhouses and condos — and while the former had a higher median asking price of $3.075 million (versus $2.825 million for condos), the latter had a higher average price per square foot of $1,567.Read moreCenter Slope townhouse leads Brooklyn luxury salesFinancier lists Brooklyn Heights townhouse for $18M$6.5M Fort Greene townhouse sale breaks neighborhood record Share on FacebookShare on TwitterShare on LinkedinShare via Email Share via Shortlink Message* Tags brooklynLuxury Real EstateResidential Real Estatetownhouse market

The Australian oil and gas company will launch a farmout process for the onshore portfolio by the end of this month ADX Energy also has an infrastructure agreement with RAG E&P in place. (Credit: John R Perry from Pixabay) ADX Energy said that it has signed concession agreements with the Austrian Federal Ministry responsible for Mining (BMLRT) for exploration, production, and gas storage in Upper Austria (Upper Austria AGS).The Australia-based company said that the concession agreements make it the sole exploration operator in the Austrian portion of the Molasse oil and gas basin.According to ADX Energy, the new drill-ready portfolio in Upper Austria complements its lower Austrian oil and gas fields, which are said to have stable, long term, cash flow.ADX Energy’s lower Austrian fields are located in the middle of OMV’s main area of operations.The prospects included in the Upper Austria AGS licenses range from over one to over 15 million barrels of oil equivalent (MMBOE) resources, said the Australian firm. The average prospect resource size in the portfolio is 4.2MMBOE.The acreage is located in a highly productive basin where the exploration success rate has been 48%, said the company.ADX Energy expects to begin drilling within a short time and develop hydrocarbons in a quick, cost-effective manner, while achieving a high degree of commercial certainty.The company claimed that prospects that are less than 1MMBOE are profitable because of their proximity to modern infrastructure. On the other hand, the company said that the larger prospects with over 10MMBOE resources, if successful, are very valuable in an onshore setting with proximity to infrastructure.ADX Energy also has an infrastructure agreement with RAG E&P in place. The agreement is said to enable the certainty of costs and time needed for development, thereby leading to the quick development of projects and the commercialisation of smaller reserves sizes as well.ADX executive chairman Ian Tchacos said: “ADX has secured a very privileged acreage position in Upper Austria which is substantially enhanced by the existence of a drill ready portfolio and guaranteed access to oil and gas infrastructure on favourable terms.“The signing of the Upper Austria AGS is the culmination of over eighteen months of technical work, commercial discussions and relationship building with RAG E&P and the Austrian designated Authorities by our local ADX team.“We are particularly encouraged by the Austrian government’s continued commitment to domestic energy sector investment as well as the encouragement of renewable opportunities that exist such as geothermal or hydrogen storage.”The Australian oil and gas company plans to begin a farmout process for the portfolio by the end of this month.
Matthew MayAlliance for Bakery Students and Trainees RepresentativeAs we are all too aware, the economy is, currently, still in the process of “realigning” itself. In the news recently, we have been told that the rate of inflation is above the government’s target; public and private sectors are having to reduce costs and focus on becoming leaner; families are needing to tighten the purse strings; and there is still a level of uncertainty over how long the situation is going to last.On top of all this, the baking industry is also having to cope with increases in the price of core raw materials and recouping the excess cost back from customers and consumers, who are already feeling the pinch themselves. Times do indeed look tough.That said, history shows us that these times don’t last forever and that things will get better. The economy will improve, and those that weather the storm will emerge stronger as a result. I guess it is up to individuals as to how they feel they wish themselves or their companies to emerge stronger from the current climate.I personally hope that the majority will at least see the benefit of maintaining staff development and education/training programmes. It can be too easy to see education and training as an unnecessary expense when times are hard. But what price can be put on members of staff who have the necessary skills to help pull businesses and the economy from recession and decline into businesses and an economy that can grow and prosper?
Last Friday, The Breakfast returned to Bridgeport, Connecticut for a night of music at The Acoustic. Formed in 1998, the current lineup features Tim Palmieri, Adrian Tramontano, and Chris DeAngelis of Kung Fu, along with Viral Sound’s Jordan Giangreco. Of the night’s musical highlights was a take on Phish’s “Stash” toward the end of their set. Kung Fu has recently collaborated with drummer Jon Fishman, along with bassist Oteil Burbridge, percussionist Jason Hann, and more, for a Bernie Sanders benefit concert in Brooklyn, which you can watch in-full right here. Thanks to mk devo, you can also watch The Breakfast take on the classic Phish tune in the video below:Semi-ironically, The Breakfast is returning to the stage on June 9th in Burlington, Vermont, which is also the birthplace of the band Phish.
Brandon “Taz” Niederauer is increasingly a well-known name in the music world. The young guitar prodigy has earned fans far and wide since he was in the single-digit years, gaining an enviable sit-in history with names such as Col. Bruce Hampton, Gregg Allman, Butch Trucks, and more. As the longest-running cast member for Andrew Lloyd Webber’s School of Rock: The Musical, for over two years, Taz treated audiences to his energized and advanced guitar stylings as the character “Zach.” Though Taz’s tenure with the musical came to a close this weekend, as the young guitarist looks to the future to pursue his own musical career (and freshman year of high school), he will always be remembered for the special moments he helped create during his time with the production.Kraz And Taz: A Look At Eric Krasno and Brandon Niederauer’s Greatest CollaborationsOne special moment last year was during a rehearsal for the Broadway production when none other than guitar icon Slash surprised the pre-teen cast. The young cast had already begun playing “Sweet Child O’ Mine” when the Guns N’ Roses guitarist arrived, hopping onstage with his signature sunburst Les Paul to play along. Taz looks noticeably excited to be playing along with the legend and can be seen watching Slash’s hands to see how he fingers the familiar solos. Slash then stuck around to run through “Paradise City” and met the excited cast. As Slash told Rolling Stone, “It was really cool to meet such an enthusiastic and talented bunch of young rock ‘n’ rollers. They were great kids as well as players.”Watch how it all went down below. You can also catch Taz Niederauer when he performs with the legendary Eric Krasno and his band this Friday, August 4th, at New York City’s The Cutting Room for a special Phish Baker’s Dozen late night.

Lewis won both the Emmy and Golden Globe for Homeland. His additional screen credits include Band of Brothers, The Forsyte Saga, Romeo and Juliet, The Sweeney, Your Highness and Life. He will soon be seen on screen in the upcoming Queen of the Desert, Our Kind of Traitor, The Silent Storm and Wolf Hall. Lewis has appeared on Broadway in Hamlet. Other stage credits include The Misanthrope, Five Gold Rings and Pillars of the Community. View Comments Former Homeland star Damian Lewis will return to the West End stage to headline a revival of David Mamet’s American Buffalo. Directed by Daniel Evans, the production will play a limited engagement at London’s Wyndham’s Theatre April 16, 2015 through June 27. Opening night is set for April 27. American Buffalo premiered at the Goodman Theatre, Chicago and opened on Broadway on February 16, 1977. The play was also adapted into to a 1996 film starring Dennis Franz (Don), Dustin Hoffman (Teach) and Sean Nelson (Bobby). Mamet’s explosive drama examines the fickle nature of honor among thieves. As three small-time crooks, Donny Dubrow, Walter “Teach” Cole (Lewis) and Bobby plan one big-time heist, a tragedy of errors spins this razor-sharp and darkly funny play into a blistering account of divided loyalties, insatiable greed… and a coveted Buffalo nickel.

Image source: DamenDamen Shipyards Group has introduced a Water Injection Dredger (WID), courtesy of a plug & play system aboard a Damen Multi Cat. “Damen invented the Multi Cat as the ideal dredge support vessel – what I like to think of as floating work bench – for Cutter Suction Dredgers (CSD). This is a logical step forward for a platform that has dredging in its DNA,” said Damen Product Director Dredging, Olivier Marcus.The Multi Cat is typically used to assist CSDs on dredging projects, carrying out tasks such as anchor shifting and cutter teeth replacement.Damen realized that, with the addition of dredging components, the Multi Cat might actually be able to take on dredging functionality in a manner that proves the rule ‘the whole is greater than the sum of its parts’.In the words of Mr Marcus: “This is not just the equipment, this is one plus one equals three.”This is not the first time the Multi Cat has demonstrated such versatility. In the past Damen has already fitted DOP pumps or a plough on the stern A-frame to carry out sand mining and maintenance dredging activities.The Multi Cat WID dredger will take a different approach. By injecting the silt with high volume, but low pressure water, the accumulated soil will become a density flow and by utilizing the current and/ or gradient the silt will be removed from ports and waterways including rivers and channels, offering a cost effective, sustainable approach to dredging.The dredger will be fitted with a Damen Dredge Pump – a wear resistant piece of equipment that is built to just keep going in the toughest of working environments.[mappress mapid=”24983″]
Belgian owner and operator of gas carriers Exmar has obtained an extension of the USD 30 million bridge loans that were originally set to expire on September 30, 2019.The extension comes on the back of the company’s discussions with Sinosure regarding the approval for the partial release of the debt service reserve account in respect of the USD 200 million loan with Bank of China and Deutsche Bank. The discussions are still ongoing for the partial release of the DSRA before the end of the year “but so far no agreement has been reached”.Additional factors include the company’s ongoing discussions with several financial institutions for a refinancing of an FSRU unit.The financing of the FSRU under a sale and leaseback with CSSC has been signed, but not executed yet pending the security documentation requiring charterer’s signature.“Gunvor has raised some legal arguments that could lead to arbitration, which further delay the signature of security documents and hence the drawdown under the CSSC financing before the end of the month of September as originally planned. An extension of the drawdown period has been obtained until the end of October,” Exmar said.Exmar provided an update on its Tango FLNG unit, saying that it has been receiving feed gas from YPF since September 9, 2019 and has been producing LNG to its full capacity since then. In the first two weeks of operations, the Tango FLNG has transferred 25,000 cubic meters of LNG to a storage vessel chartered by YPF.The company added that the LPG market has significantly improved over the last months with the VLGC market hovering around USD 50,000 a day for the month of September, compared to an average of USD 30,000 per day for the first half of 2019. The midsize market is following a similar trend.
