Navy Leverages Value of Prime San Diego Real Estate to Obtain New

first_img Dan Cohen AUTHOR The developer of a $1.4 billion, once-in-a-lifetime project to transform eight blocks of San Diego’s waterfront expects to break ground this fall, starting with a new state-of-the-art headquarters for Navy Region Southwest and other Navy tenants being built through a public-private venture originally conceived more than 30 years ago. In return for a 373,000-square-foot headquarters at no out-of-pocket cost, the Navy granted the Manchester Financial Group a 99-year lease for the remaining seven parcels of the 15-acre Navy Broadway Complex, a site it has occupied since the 1920s. The developer’s master plan totals 2.9 million square feet and, in addition to the Navy’s 17-story office building, includes a five-star boutique hotel, a 1,140-room convention hotel and 1.1 million square feet of Class A office space, along with retail and other amenities.A case study of the redevelopment project, since named Manchester Pacific Gateway, will be featured as one of six “Innovators” at next week’s Installation Innovation 2018 in San Diego.

Turos Carculator lets you see potential earnings from renting your ride

first_img Earnings Volkswagen 1 36 Photos More From Roadshow Car Culture Share your voice Volkswagen Peer-to-peer car sharing — Airbnb for cars, essentially — is a relatively new concept, and its biggest proponent right now is Turo. If you’ve thought about joining the service, but weren’t sure what kind of money could or couldn’t be made, Turo now has a tool for that.Turo’s “Carculator” (clever name) is pretty straightforward — plug in a year, make, model and location, and it will spit out your possible potential earnings with an estimate of how often it would be rented out. It calculates this estimate by looking at data from rentals that have already happened, so it’s not just pulling figures from thin air.Enlarge ImageConsidering my station wagon isn’t exactly an objet d’art, I’m not surprised its earnings potential is lower than the examples Turo provided in this image. Turo If the number is hilariously low, perhaps you won’t get much out of renting on Turo, but if you have a highly sought-after car, it might replace your pupils with dollar signs, cartoon-style.As a quick example, I looked up my personal car, a 2016 Volkswagen Golf SportWagen SEL. Detroit wasn’t listed as a location, so I just used the national average. According to that information (with my specific trim selected), my VW could earn $551 per month, which is slightly under my monthly payment. That number is calculated based on a possible $41 in earnings per day spent rented, and the Carculator estimated I’d be able to pawn my wagon off on people about 13 days each month.Of course, that won’t work for me, because the car is tied up in daily commutes every weekday, but when it comes to sports cars and other vehicles that are only used occasionally, it could very well be a solid stream of supplemental income.center_img 2020 Hyundai Palisade review: Posh enough to make Genesis jealous Comment 2020 Kia Telluride review: Kia’s new SUV has big style and bigger value 2018 Volkswagen Golf Sportwagen gushes with value 2020 BMW M340i review: A dash of M makes everything better Tagslast_img read more

first_imgBy Mark F. Gray, Special to the AFRO, mgray@afro.comPrince George’s County State’s Attorney Aisha N. Braveboy wants to reform the justice system and the impact it has on young people in the area. Since taking office in January, Braveboy has been developing a plan designed to reduce the number of juveniles that are entering the criminal justice system at a rampant pace.The first year State’s Attorney officially announced her comprehensive youth justice reform plan, which is focused on keeping young offenders out of courtrooms and jail through treatment, counseling, and mentoring programs. It appears to be an ounce of prevention and a pound of pure strategy designed to help potential offenders get proper psychological care and lead them away from criminal activities, while dealing with the causes that push them toward destructive behaviors.  Braveboy promised her office will take a “public health approach” to deal with young offenders.State’s Attorney Aisha Braveboy announced a youth justice reform program to keep juveniles out of jail and instead receive necessary help. (Courtesy Photo)“Reforming the juvenile justice system is one of my top priorities,” Braveboy said. “Often we see young people coming into the criminal justice system for minor offenses. But when you peel back the layers you find they have faced mental health issues, abuse, homelessness and other problems that have led them down this path.”    “I believe with intervention and other solutions we can make a difference in their lives,” the State’s Attorney added.Braveboy has renamed and restructured the Youth Justice Reform Unit in her office and is developing partnerships with other County agencies and organizations to assist with establishing this collaborative intervention effort. This unit is also expected to partner with other law enforcement, public health and community organizations that will assess juveniles who may need social support, counseling, tutoring and family intervention. It includes seasoned attorneys and staff who look beyond the crime and seek the cause of the actions of youth offenders.The partners include Prince George’s County Public Schools, the  Office of the Sheriff, Community Public Awareness Council, Key Bridge Center for Conflict Resolution and Jordan Peer Recovery; WIN Family Services and Interdynamics, Inc., and Howard University Law School.“These partners have pledged to work collectively and bridge the gap to provide services for our youth in the places where they need assistance,” Braveboy said. “The priority for this network of non-profits and community partners will be to chip away at the school to prison pipeline.”Braveboy’s office, in partnership with Bowie State University’s Criminal Justice Department, also plans to initiate the County’s first Youth Justice Summit in November. This is expected to be an annual event that convenes stakeholders to identify the root causes of behavior that leads juveniles into the criminal justice system. Attendees will also work to develop comprehensive policies and initiatives around youth justice reform.At its core juvenile offenders would be diverted from courtrooms and detention facilities with proper intervention. The goal is to provide young offenders with diversion programs, including mental health and substance abuse treatment, tutoring, counseling and mentoring.  Each case of a juvenile arrest will be reviewed to determine if diversion is appropriateWhile this reconstruction will change the way the State’s Attorney’s Office handles juvenile crime cases, Braveboy promises that her office will continue to make sure the safety and security of schools and communities is protected.“Prince George’s County will be the gold standard in the state and in the country for youth justice reform,” Braveboy said. “We will reduce the school to prison pipeline. We will end the cycle of young people who offend becoming adult offenders.”last_img read more
