first_img Email Address* 15 Central Park West penthouse and Lindsay Rosenwald (Google Maps, BHS, Fortress)A sprawling penthouse at 15 Central Park West sold on Tuesday for $46.67 million, 28 percent less than its first asking price.The 5,902-square-foot duplex is on the 18th and 19th floors of the renowned condominium designed by architect Robert A.M. Stern.The property went into contract and closed in one day to an unknown buyer who purchased the unit through a Delaware-registered limited liability company.Read moreExtell sells One57 sponsor unit for $17M“We are recovering”: Manhattan home sales finally increaseDeep discounts for “bottom fishers”: How 3 deals show the state of Manhattan’s buyer’s market The seller was Dr. Lindsay Rosenwald, the chief executive of pharmaceutical company Fortress Biotech. He bought the unit in 2008 for $30.5 million and put it on the market in September 2019 for $65 million.Listing broker Felise Gross of Brown Harris Stevens said Rosenwald listed the penthouse because he “just wasn’t using it.”The unit’s 19 months on the market included three months early in the pandemic when home showings were banned, but the length of the listing likely had more to do with aspirational pricing and doubts about Manhattan and its luxury market, which has only recently begun to recover from a multi-year slump.The transaction also included a studio apartment for staff, a wine cellar and two storage units.Gross, who represented Rosenwald with BHS brokers David Kornmeier and Diane Abrams, dropped the asking price in January by 11 percent to $57.9 million. Though the final sales price was more than $11 million lower, Gross said the doctor was happy with the deal. He received $16 million more for the duplex than he paid.“In this market I think the seller was very happy and he did very well,” she said. “The apartment is one of the finest in New York.”The unit has an internal private elevator, five bedrooms, 1,070 square feet of outdoor terraces overlooking Central Park, a gas fireplace and south- and west-facing views.Sales in Manhattan have picked up in recent months as sellers and developers accept discounted offers from buyers aiming to capitalize on the moment.Contact Erin Hudson Full Name* Message*last_img read more

Baltic F4 in Kehra – Serviti Polva win regular part of the season

first_img1Põlva Serviti10712294:2534115 6VHC Šviesa, Vilnius10019255:339-841 3HC Kehra/Horizon Pulp&Paper10523266:2531312 2SKA Minsk10712328:2755315 All to play for in the final weekend of regular season Related Items:Baltic Handball League Musting surprised by the regular season winOn Sunday, Põlva welcomed Cocks to town. The Finns had a long trip to Vilnius the previous day securing their place in the Final Four, but they did not come to lose. As the day before, Serviti did not get off the starting blocks very well, falling 3-1 behind. But after this the defence hold Cocks without goals for ten minutes and Serviti took a 13-9 half-time lead.In the second half, at best Cocks could only get at a two-goal distance and a 26-22 win for Serviti meant the Estonian club had won the regular season! Ardo Puna scored 7 goals for Serviti, while Andrei Buciuman and Mykhaylo Krivchikov recorded 6 for Finns. “As usual, the match on the second day of the weekend is of a bit lower quality,” said Musting. “Cocks had taken a good win the day before and both teams changed players more often than usually, but it turned out to be a good match.”Serviti’s long-serving coach was genuinely surprised by winning the regular season. “We started in autumn with two defeats and it did not look very good. But these remained our only losses, so I guess we did something right. However, I would not overestimate the position in the table, as this season all four teams are very, very equal and it’s going to be difficult Final Four in any case,” concluded Musting.Cocks forced to fight hard for the fourth placeReturning to Saturday, an important match took place in Vilnius, where local VHC Šviesa was not about to let Cocks qualify to Final Four too easily. Despite having collected just one point during the whole season, the Lithuanians put up an excellent fight. They led some part of the first half, lost it by 13-11, but bounced back in the second half again.At best Šviesa was 19-17 ahead and with five minutes to go the score was 24-24. Cocks finished better and took a hugely important 29-25 win. Kristo Voika scored 11 goals for the winners, while Skirmantas Pleta was Šviesa’s best with 6 goals. As earlier in the day SKA had beaten HC Meshkov, it meant the Finnish champions had secured 4th place for them.“I am surprised Šviesa has only one point in the table – although young, they are a strong team, play interestingly and I am sure we will hear more from them,” paid Cocks’ head coach Kaj Kekki compliments to opponents. “I believe it was our experience which turned the game to our favour in the end.”Despite having no chance to move up from 4th place, Cocks still took Sunday’s match against Serviti seriously. “I have been coaching 28 years and never gone to a game to lose, so I tried to motivate my players as best as I could,” said Kekki. “Yes, we had to limit some players’ time in order to keep them fit for next weekend’s EHF Challenge Cup, but it was a serious battle, from which Serviti came out on top.”In the other game on Sunday, Šviesa lived up to Kekki’s praise and put up a good fight again, this time against HC Kehra. Just as the day before, Lithuanians were in lead several times during the game, but the end of the match belonged to visitors and Kehra took a 32-28 (15-15) win. Jürgen Rooba scored 9 goals for Kehra and Tomas Bernatavičius 7 goals for the hosts.Final Four will take place in Kehra on 11-12 April with semi-final pairings being Serviti – Cocks and SKA – Kehra. Baltic Handball League 2020/2021 in new format ShareTweetShareShareEmailCommentsThere were two big questions prior to the last weekend of Baltic Handball League’s regular season. Who will finish top of the table and who will take the last spot available in the Final Four? The latter one was answered already on Saturday with Cocks Riihimäki securing fourth place.The winner of the regular season was clear late on Sunday after Serviti Põlva beat Cocks at home and thus finished first due to better results in games against SKA Minsk with both collecting 15 points.SKA finished with winTitle-holders SKA had only one match to play and they finished in style beating fellow Belarussians from HC Meshkov Brest by clear margin of 37-26 (21-13), even without using all their key players. Mikita Vailupau from SKA was in unstoppable form, scoring 13 goals for the winners, while Artsiom Selviasiuk’s 10 goals did not help HC Meshkov too much.Serviti also had a “domestic affair” on Saturday, as they welcomed HC Kehra/Horizon Pulp&Paper to Põlva. The visitors did take a 2-0 lead, but after these first minutes they did not manage to go in front anymore. Serviti was 17-13 ahead at half-time and despite Kehra managed to cut the deficit to a minimum in the second half on few occasions, it was hosts’ 8-0 sprint at the start of the final ten minutes, which decided the match and Serviti moved two points from SKA with a 32-23 win.Andreas Rikken scored 6 goals for winners, but Kehra’s Ukrainian Dmytro Yankovskiy had the highest score of the match with 10. “We played a good game, especially considering our low average age at the back and on the line,” admitted Serviti’s head coach Kalmer Musting. “But perhaps this youthful energy, speed and especially great emotional charge brought us the desired result?”STANDINGS:center_img 5HC Meshkov Brest10325271:291-208 Recommended for you Serviti moves closer to Tenax 4Riihimäen Cocks10415261:264-39 ShareTweetShareShareEmail Click to comment Leave a Reply Cancel replyYour email address will not be published.Comment Name Email Website Save my name, email, and website in this browser for the next time I comment.last_img read more

UCLA defeats Minnesota to put Gophers’ season on the line

first_imgUCLA defeats Minnesota to put Gophers’ season on the lineThe Gophers lost 7-2 and will play Washington at 11 a.m. on Saturday.Hope Brandner stands on base during the Women’s College World Series on May 30. Erik NelsonMay 31, 2019Jump to CommentsShare on FacebookShare on TwitterShare via EmailPrintAfter allowing only five combined runs in the Regional and Super Regional, Gophers pitcher Amber Fiser couldn’t contain one of the favorites to win the Women’s College World Series.No. 2 UCLA (52-6) defeated No. 7 Minnesota (46-13) 7-2 at ASA Hall of Fame Stadium in Oklahoma City, Oklahoma. It was Minnesota’s first NCAA Women’s College World Series game in program history. Fiser allowed seven runs for the first time since Feb. 23.“We didn’t do a great job at [getting key outs],” Minnesota head coach Jamie Trachsel said. “Especially in those first three innings, they got their leadoff on each inning. They made us pay for it. We haven’t felt a loss like this in a while.”The Bruins came out strong, scoring a run in each of the first three innings.Bruins center fielder Bubba Nickles gave UCLA its first run with a leadoff home run in the bottom of the first inning. It was Nickles’ 17th home run of the season.“I wasn’t trying to hit a home run,” Nickles said. “It worked out to make us get ahead. I’m happy with that outcome.”It took the Gophers until the sixth inning to close the gap. Right fielder Maddie Houlihan singled to lead off the sixth inning, and designated player Natalie DenHartog hit her 17th double of the season to get the Gophers on the board. Later in the inning, shortstop Allie Arneson singled in DenHartog, cutting the lead to 3-2. That was as close as Minnesota would get. Second baseman MaKenna Partain said Minnesota’s sixth inning gave the Gophers a boost for their next game. “We belong here,” Partain said. “There’s no doubt about that. We competed with the best pitcher in the nation. It gives you that extra boost of confidence. It’s good for us to thrive off of that. That’s encouraging for us.”Bruins right fielder Aaliyah Jordan extended the Bruins’ lead to 7-2 with a three-run home run in the bottom of the sixth inning. It was Jordan’s 11th home run of the season.Bruins pitcher Rachel Garcia won her 25th game of the season. Garcia pitched all seven innings, striking out seven Gophers and allowing four hits.Fiser threw 5 2/3 innings, allowing seven runs, eight hits and six walks. She struck out six. This was her first loss since May 11. Pitcher Sydney Smith relieved Fiser in the sixth and recorded the final out. It was Smith’s first appearance since May 11.Minnesota will face No. 3 Washington (50-8) on Saturday at 11 a.m. The Gophers must defeat the Huskies or they will be eliminated. If the Gophers beat Washington, they will face either UCLA or No. 6 Arizona (48-12) on Saturday at 6 p.m.“This team is scrappy,” DenHartog said. “No one wants their season to end. We’re going to fight until its over.”last_img read more

Cliches about only being as old as you feel are starting to have scientific backing

first_imgWe’ve heard all the cliches about aging: “You’re as young [or old] as you feel.” “Age is just a number.” “You’re not getting older, you’re getting better.” “Seventy is the new 50.” Well-intentioned, perhaps. Offensive, to some. Patronizing, to be sure. But could they be true?Maybe science has started to catch up with these tired phrases. Researchers have discovered that many people feel good about themselves as they get older.One study, for example, found that as people get older, they consistently say they feel younger — much younger — than their actual age. Another study examining the attitudes of the offspring of centenarians concluded that the centenarians’ children — if they, too, were healthy and long-lived — have a strong sense of purpose and meaning to their lives, compared with the general population. Finally, there is evidence that positive attitudes about aging may reduce the risk of dementia, among the most dreaded consequences of aging.

Tech Is Already Reading Your Emotions – But Do Algorithms Get It Right?

first_img Read the whole story: Forbes … From measuring shopper satisfaction to detecting signs of depression, companies are employing emotion-sensing facial recognition technology that is based on flawed science, according to a new study. If the idea of having your face recorded and then analyzed for mood so that someone can intervene in your life sounds creepy, that’s because it is. But that hasn’t stopped companies like Walmart from promising to implement the technology to improve customer satisfaction, despite numerous challenges from ethicists and other consumer advocates. A new study in the journal Psychological Science in the Public Interest is challenging the basic science behind emotion-sensing tech and its claims to be able to infer a person’s mood from their facial expressions. The scientists behind the research, who hail from Northeastern University, Caltech, Ohio State, and the University of Wisconsin – Madison, also make clear precisely what’s at stake.last_img read more
