Brad Pitt’s investigation extended due to new accusations

Brad Pitt’s investigation extended due to new accusations

Sources say that the LA County Department of Children and Family Services has extended their investigation into Brad Pitt regarding an alleged incident with a child aboard a private plane. The FBI visited Angelina Jolie’s residence in Malibu to questioned potential witnesses for 3 hours, which included some of their children. The alleged incident is related to reports of “unintentional contact” between Brad and a child. A spokesperson for the FBI went on to say. “In response to your inquiry regarding allegations within the special aircraft jurisdiction of the United States; specifically, an aircraft carrying Mr. Brad Pitt and his children, the FBI is continuing to gather facts and will evaluate whether an investigation at the federal level will be pursued”. The FBI intend to conclude the investigation shortly and if there are reports of child abuse, they will forward the report to the U.S. District Attorney to look at the further evidence and prosecute, if necessary. The outcome of this investigation will not impact Brad and Angelina’s divorce or their custody agreement over their six kids. Sources say that Brad has seen the children twice since Angeline filed for divorce mid-September. Angelina was given sole custody of their children, while Brad received visitation rights, till the case is heard. The 41-year-old actress, however, believes that the couple will co-parent their children in the future. An insider stated that Brad was eager “to see the kids and to work out an arrangement that is best for them” and “wants to work things out privately and amicably.”...

Key provisions in a construction contract to reduce claims

Key provisions in a construction contract to reduce claims

Any construction project, big or small, comes with a certain amount of risk. Unless both time and cost have been underestimated, there is a likelihood that the project will have cost overruns and delays. Any construction disputes that arise from such issues usually end up with a construction claim that goes before a mediator or legal authority. One way to limit or reduce the possibility of claims is to ensure that key provisions are in the contract to protect you. Here are some of those clauses: Notice Any request for additional time or cost due to any circumstances must come with written notice to the owner. The owner then has sufficient time to both examine the merits of the claim and make changes to the timeline or cost agreement. When a contractor does not meet the contractual obligation to provide notice, they waive their rights with respect to the contract. Differing conditions At face value, the differing site conditions clause looks like protection for the contractor. When a site does not match the original site condition at the point of inspection, the contractor can ask for a fair adjustment in price. The owner benefits by getting a more realistic figure for the initial costing, as the contractor doesn’t need to pad the estimate to account for any unforeseen changes. Time extension Whenever possible, insist on a clause that makes the contractor financially liable for any delays for the project within their control. Written by Lyle Charles Consulting.

Underestimating a Clean Outdoor Patio

Underestimating a Clean Outdoor Patio

Summary: A clean patio can prove to be great asset for any household. The only issue is routinely cleaning it. Most homeowners own an outdoor patio that they love to death. As a matter of fact, they love it so much that they neglect it and let everything start to rot after a few years. Sounds factual right? Realistically, most homeowners are so busy tending to the interior of their house that they neglect their patios, when they’re actually one of the areas that are valued the most. Keeping a clean patio not only guarantees a nice, warm place to relax when the weather’s right, but it can also significantly increase the value of a home as well. Routine Cleaning One of the best ways to keep a patio clean is to, well, clean it regularly. It might seem like a tedious chore, which it really is, but it’s a necessity when it’s all said and done. The best way you can start is to clear all the junk that’s worth throwing away. Bring a large garbage bin and start tossing things that you’ll never see yourself using in your life ever – and yes, that means that broken down tractor that was handed down to you decades ago. Part with Old Goods While it does mean parting with some historical artifacts, it also prevents you from being a hoarder. Upon cleaning, you’ll want to decide what outdoor furniture pieces are worth keeping and what are worth throwing away. For instance, maybe you have an outdoor sofa that’s in great shape but is completely discolored and filled with cobwebs. Try and spray it down and replace them with some premium outdoor foam cushions and it’ll look good as new. Or, you can just go on a shopping spree at a furniture store or even a specialty store like The Foam Factory, so you can get the pieces you need to turn your patio into an actually interesting place to...
