A few nice public record images I found:

London – Tower Hamlets: Tower of London (panoramic)


Image by wallyg
The Tower of London, a dominating landmark in the London Borough of Tower Hamlets, beside the northern bank of the River Thames, is a complex of buildings built over the years (architecturally described as a palimpsest) set within outer defensive walls. The Tower’s primary function was as a fortress, a royal palace and a prison. It has also served as a place of execution and torture, an armoury, a treasury, a zoo, a mint, a public records office, and an observatory.

The Tower was founded in 1078 when William the Conqueror ordered the White Tower built inside the SE angle of the City walls, as much to protect the Normans from Londoners as for protection from outside invaders. Shakespeare, in Richard III, ascribed an earlier beginning, dating to Julius Caesar. The Roman origin is a myth, however, as is the story that the mortar used was tempered by the blood of beasts.

In the 12th century King Richard the Lionheart enclosed the White Tower with a curtain wall and dug a moat with water from the Thames. Until Henry III employed a Dutch moat building technique, though, it didn’t serve as a very effective deterrent. Henry also transformed the Tower into a major royal residence and had palatial buidings constructed within the Inner Bailey. Between 1275 and 1285, Edward I built the outer curtain wall, completely enclosing the inner wall and thus creating a concentric double defense. He filled in the pre-existing moat and built a new one around the new outer wall. The Tower continued to remain a royal residence until the time of Oliver Cromwell who demolished the old palatial buidings.

A Royal Menagerie, largely stocked with animals from Henry I’s Woodstock palace, was established in the 13th century. Popular theory dates to 1235 when Henry III received a wedding gift of three leopards from Frederick II, Holy Roman Emperor. In 1264 they were moved to the Bulwark, renamed the Lion Tower. A lion skull, radiocarbon dated to 1280-1385, was found, making it the earliest known big cat in Britain. The menagerie was opened on occasion to the public during the reign of Elizabeth I, and regularly by 1804. The last of the animals were moved to the London Zoo by 1835 and most of the Lion Tower was demolished.

For much of its history, the Tower was used as a prison. Royal captives were often housed in relative comfort, but religious dissidents were subjugated to severe torture. The first prisoner, Ranulf Flambard, Bishop of Durham, was held in 1100. Lower-class criminals were usually executed by hanging at one of the public execution sites outside the Tower, but seven nobles were beheaded privately inside the Tower.

The Tower as forification became obsolete with the introduction of artillery and the moat was drained in 1830. It served as the headquarters of the Board of Ordnance until 18555, and was occasionally used as a prison. During WWWI, 11 German spies were shot in the Tower. Irish rebel Roger Casement was imprisoned in 1916 and Hitler’s deputy, Rudolf Hess, was interred during WWII. The last execution, a German spy, occured in 1941. Waterloo Barracks, the current location of the Crown Jewels remained in use as a base into the 1950s. In 1952 the Kray twins were held there for failing to report for national service, making them the last prisoners of the Tower.

Although no longer occupied by the Royal Family, the Tower remains a royal residence, and as such, maintains a permanent guard.

The Biggest, Best Observation Tool Now Bigger, Better

The Biggest, Best Observation Tool Now Bigger, Better












Salt Lake City, UT (PRWEB) October 06, 2011

School Improvement Network provides the only classroom observation tool with prescriptive technology. The program will actually recommend training videos based on the observation results, thanks to its integration with the world’s largest online professional development platform, PD 360.

With Observation 360 v1.5, the application on the iPad now has extended features that respond to the needs and requests of administrators and instructional leaders:

Watch PD 360 videos on the iPad

You can select, assign, and view preselected videos right on your iPad as you prepare the template and perform the observation. Now you can see the video links that are available and make any necessary changes.

Assign a Target Completion Date

You can now assign a Target Completion Date that you fill in at the bottom of the template by which a teacher must view all video content and leave a note in the comment box. As always, you will receive alerts as teachers complete the assigned tasks.

Link up to 3 Videos per Question

You now have the ability to link up to three videos per question, giving teachers a variety of options and training on a certain issue. More videos will help you help teachers who need a deeper understanding of a topic, especially after multiple observations.

Control Email and Notification

By law in certain states, any email sent to an educator’s school account is considered public record. You can now turn off the email function so that observations remain a private part of an instructor’s critical training. You and the instructor will still receive notifications and the observation results in PD 360.

Manage Sharing Options

You now have the option to turn off the automatic upload option so that observed teachers receive the observation when you are prepared to share the information. You can also leave the functionality on to increase efficiency and ease of use. You will continue to receive the observation results in your PD 360 account.

Confirm Your Template

Observation 360 v1.5 has increased its privacy settings by automatically confirming your template, school, and teacher before you begin an observation. You will no longer have concerns about performing an observation on the wrong instructor or using a template that lacks the necessary questions that focus on specific goals and criteria.

Observation 360 works online or offline on your iPhone, iPad, iPod Touch, Android phones and tablets, and PC laptops and desktops. Instructional leaders can access the templates and resources anytime and absolutely anywhere—online or offline—to provide efficient, effective observation under any circumstances. Customizable templates give instructional leaders a simple, easy-to-use tool for performing observations and walkthroughs. All of the data can be automatically sent to PD 360 upon completion of the observation where instructors can access observation results and correlated training materials.

MEGA Home Improvement Has Been Named One of the Top 500 Remodelers in the Country by Qualified Remodeler Magazine













MEGA Home Improvement is once again on the Qualified Remodelers Top 500 list.


Algonquin, IL (PRWEB) October 21, 2011

For the 11th straight year, MEGA Home Improvement has been named one of the Top 500 remodelers in the country by Qualified Remodeler magazine. This prestigious honor is the result of an extensive review process that begins with 500,000 candidates and ends with only 500 making the final cut.

“Only one in 1,000 of our candidates is eventually named to this list,” says Christina Koch, editor of Qualified Remodeler. “Our editorial staff analyzes each application and verifies information through public records, websites and other sources. The screening is extensive.”

The final step in the process is an audit of financial performance by a recognized CPA firm. This determines which 500 remodeling companies in the United States are the highest ranked on a full spectrum of factors.

“Considering the difficult economic conditions facing our nation, MEGA’s achievement of rising to the top of this industry is even more remarkable,” says John Huff, publisher of the magazine. “You are part of an elite group that has excellent business acumen, a commitment to customer service, insightful sales, innovative techniques and strong customer loyalty.”

As an 11-time award winner, MEGA president Joe Hogel says his company has worked hard to receive the recognition, which he believes is well deserved. “The fact that we are on this list year after year demonstrates the ongoing quality of our work,” he says. “We are committed to excellence in everything we do, and we believe the same qualities that got us on the list this year will keep us on the list for years to come.”

The 2011 award was presented at a reception on October 12 at the Marriott Hotel in Chicago.

Ascot Hills Park 2009


Image by The City Project
Almost four years after Mayor Antonio Villaraigosa called a press conference surrounded by neighborhood children to celebrate the ground breaking for the Ascot Hills Park in East L.A., A broken sign trumpeting the new park lay propped up against the fancy new gate, a symbol of the City’s broken promise of a park.

The City Project is counting how many days in the life of a child it takes the city of Los Angeles Recreation and Parks Department to open a natural park in a natural green open space setting.

In response to community demands led by The City Project, Concerned Citizens of South Central Los Angeles, California Pan Ethnic Health Network (CPEHN), and PolicyLink, as well as hard hitting coverage in the Los Angeles Times, the city of Los Angeles held a ground breaking – again – for the Ascot Hills Park in East Los Angeles on June 14, 2010 – four years after the city held the ground breaking for the same Ascot Hills Park in East L.A. in November 2005, but failed to open the park.

“[I]n East L.A. itself, the largest open space is Evergreen Cemetery, which basically sends a message to kids: ‘If you want open space, you have to die first,’ The City Project’s Robert García told the Los Angeles Times in 2004, when the community proposed the park. Miguel Bustillo, Former Foes Unite Behind a Proposal to Turn Old Reservoir Site into a Park, L.A. Times, Jan. 15, 2004.

According to a Los Angeles Times Editorial in November 2005, “downtown and Eastside residents could be hiking and watching the setting sun backlight downtown’s skyscrapers from Ascot Hills by the end of next year” — that is to say, by the end of 2005. L.A. Times Editorial, A Diamond in the Rough, Jan. 17, 2004.

Why the four year delay in opening Ascot Hills Park?

No good reason.

The City Project recently asked the city why Ascot Hills Park is still not open after four years, and received the following responses under the Public Records Act on April 23, 2010:

11. Any reason why open, green space in Ascot Hills is gated and locked to the public with No Trespassing signs posted.

CITY RESPONSE: “After a thorough search of the Department’s files, it has been determined that the Department does not have any records responsive to this request.”

12. Any reason why the public cannot use the open, green space in Ascot Hills that is gated and locked.

CITY RESPONSE: “After a thorough search of the Department’s files, it has been determined that the Department does not have any records responsive to this request.”

13. Any comments from the public or public officials regarding the operation of Ascot Hills park as a passive park, which would require little maintenance.

CITY RESPONSE: “After a thorough search of the Department’s files, it has been determined that the Department does not have any records responsive to this request.”

14. Any reason why Ascot Hills, or parts of Ascot Hills, cannot operate as a passive park now?

CITY RESPONSE: “After a thorough search of the Department’s files, it has been determined that the Department does not have any records responsive to this request.”

The City Project and Mountains Conservation and Recreation (MRCA) have offered to take over the project and open the park faster than the city will.

Now the city claims that the park will celebrate its “grand opening early next year.” The City Project working with the community will serve as a watch dog to make sure the city this time keeps its promises to the children of East L.A. and their families and friends.

Louis Sahagun reported in the Los Angeles Times as follows:

Against a backdrop of smiling children, cheering officials and rolling grasslands, Los Angeles Mayor Antonio Villaraigosa savored a groundbreaking ceremony on Nov. 1, 2005, for a nature preserve just northeast of downtown, declaring it “a historic moment for this community.”

“The effort was a great example of what can be accomplished when the community and elected officials work toward a common goal — in this case, preserving green, open space for the public to enjoy,” said Villaraigosa, wearing a white hard hat and clutching a shovel to turn the first spadeful of dirt at Ascot Hills Park.

Today, the property tucked in the working-class communities of Lincoln Heights and Hillside Village stands as an emblem of what has not been accomplished. Scant areas of the 140-acre park are open to the public. Its most panoramic hilltops and largest patches of remnant native plants remain locked up behind “no trespassing” signs.

The park was scheduled to be completed by June 2007, according to an analysis of park documents conducted by the City Project, a nonprofit organization dedicated to creating more public open space.

“Instead, we have padlocks, no trespassing signs and broken promises — and no good explanation for it,” said attorney Robert Garcia, executive director of the City Project, which has begun the process to file a suit against the city.

Surveying the land recently from a road blocked by a locked gate, he shook his head and said, “These locks and signs are symbols of bureaucratic incompetence and political indifference toward our rights to open space.”

Joe Edmiston, executive director of the Mountains Recreation and Conservation Authority, a joint powers authority under contract to design and manage the park, would not go that far. But he was only half-kidding when he said in an interview, “I hope Mayor Villaraigosa’s New Year’s resolution is to finish Ascot Hills Park in 2010.”

Deed And Record: Online, Quit Claim Deed and Recording Service Expands Its Office

Deed And Record: Online, Quit Claim Deed and Recording Service Expands Its Office










Irvine, California (PRWEB) October 03, 2011

For over a year Deed and Record has provided low cost, personal service using the internet. Deed and Record services most of the United States and has the expertise to meet the unique requirements of the states of California and Hawaii. Deed and Record is a complete service and includes:

Title search to determine the precise legal description of the real property, including map, block and lot number

Research to determine how title is held

Preparation of the quit claim deed

Preparation of County transfer tax documents to keep the deed free of transfer and property taxes

Filing the deed with the County Recorder’s Office

Trust Transfer Deeds

For the past year Deed and Record has provided the service to transfer real property into a living trust. Any real estate property not in the trust is at risk for probate.

Add or Remove Joint Tenant

If real property is held in joint tenancy, upon the death of a joint tenant, the deceased joint tenant’s interest ‘disappears’ and the survivor has sole ownership. The county recorder must be notified of the death and the public records updated. This is done with an “affidavit death of joint tenant.” For the past year Deed and Record has provided the affidavit for signature and recording with the County.

Add or Remove Spouse

For the past year Deed and Record has meet the needs of couples to transfer title in real estate property. In a divorce or dissolution of marriage real property is awarded to one spouse. The non-owning ex-spouse has to transfer his or her interest to the owner. This is done with a quit claim deed also known as an inter-spousal deed. Or a spouse owning property prior to the marriage needs a quit claim to add the other spouse as a co-owner.

Timeshares

Deed and Record has in the past year resolved title issues for owners of timeshares to: give away the timeshare; add or remove a joint tenant; add or remove a spouse and transfer the timeshare into a trust

Hawaii’s Recording System

For over a year Deed and Record has guided the Hawaii real estate owner through the complex Hawaii recording systems. Hawaii is the only state in the nation with a single statewide recording office. Documents are recorded either in the Land Court system, Regular system or both, depending on which system the land was originally recorded. When recorded in both land systems, documents are said to be recorded in the Double system. To complicate matters, timeshares in the land court system are decertified upon filing. Deed and Record works with the owner to identify the correct system.

Steve Jobs Appears to have Legally Stiffed IRS Out of $3B

Steve Jobs Appears to have Legally Stiffed IRS Out of $ 3B













Steve Jobs’s Trusts: Irrevocable or Revocable


Boston, MA (PRWEB) October 27, 2011

Steve Jobs may not have been able to cheat death, but it appears that he has been able to legally avoid estate taxes. After Estate Street Partners examined his public financial documents and property assets he owned, it appears he used an asset protection tool such as an irrevocable trust to avoid probate and paying estate taxes. Estate taxes would have cost up to 35% of his estate. Reportedly he amassed about $ 8 billion after the sale of his Pixar shares to Disney and he had approximately $ 2 billion worth of Apple shares before his death so with good estate planning he thwarted the IRS of an estimated $ 3B.

No one knows for certain what precise estate planning tools Mr. Jobs used though except his family. He was a private person and appears to have owned many of his assets with some type of trust whether revocable or irrevocable. Any trust (revocable or irrevocable) would avoid probate, but if Mr. Jobs used revocable trusts, he would still pay estate taxes.

We can conclude by Mr. Jobs’s meticulous nature to detail though he would have used an irrevocable trust.

Without any trust, at Mr. Job’s net worth, his probate expenses would have been about 4-7% and his estate taxes would be 35% of the value of his estate above $ 5M, respectively; in other words, a whopping $ 450M for probate and $ 3.1B for estate taxes. Probate is the process through which a court determines the value of the estate and approves the distribution of assets covered by a will if there is one.

“You don’t have to be a billionaire to take advantage of the same strategies that Steve Jobs brilliantly executed. Almost anyone that has worked hard to build a nest egg needs to do similar estate planning for asset protection as well as Medicaid planning, and to avoid estate taxes and probate. John Maynard Keynes said it correctly, ‘The avoidance of taxes is the only intellectual pursuit that carries any reward’,” states Rocco Beatrice, Managing Director of Estate Street Partners in Boston, Massachusetts.

Probate and estate taxes are the only voluntary reporting systems in the entire IRS code and civil procedures. Both the probate process and the voluntary taxes applicable in death taxes are affected only to assets titled to the deceased individual’s name on the date of death. More simply, the probate and estate taxes would have applied to Mr. Jobs’s property and assets that were legally in his name at the time he passed away.

“These [probate and estate taxes] can be totally avoided by simply using an irrevocable trust. I hope, for the sake of his children and wife, that Jobs implemented an irrevocable trust as opposed to a revocable one. It [revocable trust] shouldn’t even be in the dictionary – in my opinion. Revocable trusts clearly have no protection against anything other than the probating process. That’s why we created the irrevocable Ultra Trust® for our clients,” explains Mr. Beatrice.

Whether Jobs used a revocable or irrevocable trust only his executors and close family members would know for sure, but after previewing his public records he purchased some properties under JOBS TRUST and JOBS STEVEN P TRUST so it is safe to conclude that he had some asset protection strategy in place.

At one point, he owned an airport Stockton Municipal Airport appraised at $ 35M and owned another parcel of land worth $ 52M. With assets in trust the terms of the trust are not disclosed to the public.

“A record search of assets titled to Steve Jobs’s personal name is chump change to what we will ever hope to find out about the extent of which irrevocable trust like our Ultra Trust® was used by Steve Jobs. In future years to come, we may get glimpses of the extent of his estate planning, but maybe only if there is a lawsuit from disgruntled family members or creditors who may claim that they should have part of the wealth.”
