bankruptcybrooklynInvestment Sales David Umansky of Civic Builders and 720 Livonia Ave in Brooklyn (Photos via Google Maps, Civic Builders)Civic Builders, which finances and builds school buildings for charter school networks, purchased a 28,000-square-foot school building at 720 Livonia Avenue in New Lots for $11.5 million. David Umansky, CEO of Civic Builders, signed for the buyer, limited liability company Civic Saratoga.The building was last purchased for $4.9 million in 2015 by two limited liability companies formed by controversial real estate figure Chaskiel Strulowitz (also known as Cheskel Strulovitch). Civic Builders bought the building at auction after a lender initiated bankruptcy proceedings against Strulowitz in 2019.A 2017 lawsuit accusing Strulowitz of a Ponzi-type scheme is in arbitration, records show. Brownstoner connected him to an affordable housing project in Bushwick called Knickerbocker Lofts.Crain’s reported in 2012 that Strulowitz began buying northern Brooklyn properties more than 20 years ago, leasing a three-story former loudspeaker factory on the Williamsburg waterfront in 1998 and converting it into 46 loft apartments, only to lose his 13-year lease when it expired.The Livonia Avenue deal was the only investment sale recorded last week in New York City between $10 million and $30 million, although a parcel of land adjacent to the LaGuardia Marriott hotel sold for $17 million as part of a $100 million-plus deal for the hotel itself. In the week prior, two such sales were recorded, totalling $34.2 million.Contact Orion Jones Share via Shortlink Full Name* Share on FacebookShare on TwitterShare on LinkedinShare via Email Share via Shortlink Email Address* Tags Message*
Here at Blue Ridge Outdoors we’re always looking for the next best way to haul our gear back and forth from the campsite, festival setup, beach, etc., and with the new and innovative Big Kat Buggy, we’ve found something that’s hard to beat.The Big Kat Buggy is a recreational cart that attaches to the hitch of your vehicle for easy and convenient transportation of all your outdoor essentials. The rugged design allows users to transport a maximum amount of gear to tough-to-reach destinations with ease.While testing the Big Kat Buggy, we quickly realized that it was tailor-made for a wide variety of outdoor pursuits. Whether you’re gearing up for a leisurely day on the beach, a rockin’ music fest, a surf fishing adventure or the ultimate car camping excursion, the Big Kat Buggy will make your experience more successful and enjoyable every single time.One of our biggest takeaways from our time testing the Big Kat Buggy was the ease with which it attached to and detached from the trailer hitch of our vehicle.The convenience of this process really cuts down on valuable time you would otherwise spend making multiple trips to and from your ultimate destination—eventually freeing up time for more important and enjoyable pursuits.The Big Kat Buggy was invented by an avid outdoorsman who also owns a successful trucking transport and hauling company. After being frustrated with the lack of options on the market for carrying outdoor gear and accessories in a highly efficient manner, Kevin “Big Kat” Rackleff decided to build his own.Initially, Rackleff envisioned the product as a “little red wagon,” but on a grander scale, which could hitch conveniently to a vehicle. It needed to be easy to use, and most important, it had to be made with quality and safety in mind.“It had to be an option that could bring more joy and less hassle to outdoor activities,” Kevin said. After two years of extensive research and development, Kevin had the Big Kat ready for the market, and it is now available at select retailers for $399.99.Some of our favorite features on the Big Kat Buggy were the built in bottle opener, the rugged, go-anywhere tires, the large deck that allows for the maximum amount of storage and transport, the fishing rod holders and the secure cargo net.Learn more about the Big Kat Buggy at bigkatbuggy.comRelated:

Why engineer things from scratch, when we can imitate nature? Two recent examples come from the world of insects. A press release from UC Berkeley begins, “Using the eyes of insects such as dragonflies and houseflies as models, a team of bioengineers at University of California, Berkeley, has created a series of artificial compound eyes.” (Emphasis added in all quotes.) Insect eyes use thousands of facets to get a wide field of view without distortion. How can humans use this technology? “Potential applications include surveillance; high-speed motion detection; environmental sensing; medical procedures, such as endoscopies and image-guided surgeries, that require cameras; and a number of clinical treatments that can be controlled by implanted light delivery devices.” Anyone who has missed swatting a fly knows that the insects have these first three applications down pat. The authors published their work in Science this week.1 Human committees have a hard time arriving at a consensus about what is the best solution to a problem. Maybe they should learn from bees. Ten thousand of them swarming chaotically somehow converge quickly on a solution to the problem of the best location for a new hive. A press release from Cornell University says that “they have a unique method of deciding which site is right: With great efficiency they narrow down the options and minimize bad decisions.” How? By coalition building till a quorum develops, the article explains. The scientists found that bees use their famous “waggle dance” not only when shopping for food, but when scouting for real estate. The researchers watched 4,000 scouts report back to the hive from various directions. The superior site usually was not the first one chosen. In a 16-hour process, the swarm came to agreement and found the best solution. “This is a striking example of decision making by an animal group that is complicated enough to rival the dealings of any department committee,” said Thomas Seeley, Cornell biologist. What can managers take home from this nature lesson? Include an open forum of ideas, and employ frank discussions and friendly competition. This quorum-setting method of aggregating independent opinions might help “achieve collective intelligence and thus avoid collective folly.”1Jeong et al., “Biologically Inspired Artificial Compound Eyes,” Science, 28 April 2006: Vol. 312. no. 5773, pp. 557 – 561, DOI: 10.1126/science.1123053.Funny, honey; none of these articles mentioned evolution, but they seemed to have no problem using the word design.(Visited 16 times, 1 visits today)FacebookTwitterPinterestSave分享0
Share Facebook Twitter Google + LinkedIn Pinterest One of the requirements for the registration of XtendiMAx, Engenia, and FeXapan is the investigation of any non-performance (ineffective control) by the respective companies, which then has to be reported to the U.S. EPA. The goal of this reporting is apparently to try to track the development of resistance as soon as it occurs in a few fields, which would then allow time to modify practices so that the rate of resistance in other fields is slowed. We encourage growers and consultants to take the time to scout for non-performance, within 14 days after application according to information from labels. Problems with control can be reported to the three companies via online sites or toll-free numbers as follows, or directly to company representatives.Monsanto (XtendiMax) – 1-844-RRXTENDBASF (Engenia) – www.Non-Performance.BASF.USDuPont (FeXapan) – 1-888-6-DUPONTProblems with off-target movement from spray particle drift or vapor drift (volatility) can be reported to the three companies the same way. We would encourage growers experiencing these problems to contact the companies or their representatives, but unlike non-performance, they are not required to investigate and report these to the USEPA. Given that these problems are usually the result of not following label guidelines or appropriate application practices, the primary contact would be the Ohio Department of Agriculture.

Creating a Premiere Pro Swipe TransitionYour first step is to find the two shots you want to transition with one another. Layer them into your timeline.Now get your transition element. In this example, I use a post. Take a screen cap of the frame and place it into your timeline, above and between your two shots.Now mask your transitioning layer.From here, we animate the post’s position. Remember if your footage moves in one direction your animation moves in the opposite. The camera pans left to right, so we animate right to left.Keyframe and crop your footage to track with the animation.Finally, apply a Gaussian blur and darken your animated image to better integrate it with your footage.Creating a Premiere Pro Vehicle Swipe TransitionNow, let’s move over to our car animation. Luckily, it follows similar steps. Find the two shots you want to transition. Layer the first shot above the second by about ten frames.Next, grab an image of a car, layer it above the two other shots, and mask it.Scale and position your car image so that it fills the screen. Make sure the wheels are off-camera.Move your image’s position to one side of the frame. Then click your keyframe marker. Move up ten frames and slide the image to the opposite side.The next step is to apply a crop effect to the shot bellow your animation. Create a keyframe and track the moving animation with your crop. This effect will reveal the shot below your cropped video. Improve your swipe transitions by animating a still image in Adobe Premiere Pro.Top image via Shutterstock.When it comes to video transitions, I’m always trying to step up my game. To me, a good transition cuts a scene seamlessly without making the audience feel like something was there in the first place. In today’s tutorial, I show you how to create a seamless swipe transition by animating still images. I also demonstrate how to create the famous car swipe transition common in Edgar Wright‘s films. Do you know other tips for using animated stills in video editing transitions? Let us know in the comments.
