spezial adidas Jared Kushner retain ties to business empire

By JESSE DRUCKER, ERIC LIPTON and MAGGIE HABERMAN

Ivanka Trump and Jared Kushner, President Donald Trump’s daughter and son in law, will remain the beneficiaries of a sprawling real estate and investment business still worth as much as $740 million, despite their new government responsibilities, according to ethics filings released by the White House Friday night. The hotel, just down the street from the White House, has drawn protests from ethics experts who worry that foreign governments or special interests could stay there in order to curry favor with the administration.

It is unclear how Ivanka Trump would earn income from that stake. Kushner’s financial disclosures said that Ivanka Trump earned between $1 million and $5 million from the hotel between January 2016 and March 2017, and put the value of her stake at between $5 million and $25 million.

The disclosures were part of a broad, Friday night document release by the White House that exposed the assets of as many as 180 senior officials to public scrutiny. The reports showed the assets and wealth of senior staff members at the time they entered government service.

Those disclosures included the assets of Gary Cohn, the former president of Goldman Sachs who now leads the National Economic Council, Kellyanne Conway, the pollster and counsel to Trump, and Stephen Bannon, the chief strategist to the president.

Bannon disclosed $191,000 in consulting fees he earned from Breitbart News Network, the conservative media organization, $125,333 from Cambridge Analytica, a data firm that worked for the Trump campaign, and $61,539 in salary from the Government Accountability Institute, a conservative nonprofit organization. All three are backed by Robert Mercer and his daughter Rebekah, financiers and major Republican donors.

Bannon’s most valuable asset was Bannon Strategic Advisors Inc., a privately held consulting firm into which income from his other investments appeared to flow. It was valued at between $5 million and $25 million. He also held bank accounts valued at up to $2.25 million, and rental real estate worth as much as $10.5 million.

Conway earned at least $842,614 last year, and perhaps slightly more, the filings show. Her assets are valued at between $11 million and at least $44.2 million.

Cohn is far wealthier, with assets valued between $253 million and $611 million, and income last year as high as $77 million. Another White House official, Reed Cordish, who heads up technology initiatives, accumulated assets as a Maryland developer valued as high as $424 million. history, with members of his senior staff and Cabinet worth an estimated $12 billion, according to a tally by Bloomberg. The Friday filings will add voluminous detail to that top line figure.

The White House chief of staff, Reince Priebus, for example, earned at least $1.18 million nearly half of which came from the Republican National Committee, which he formerly led. His assets totaled between $604,008 and at least $1.26 million.

“I think one of the really interesting things that people are going to see today and I think it’s something that should be celebrated is that the president has brought a lot of people into this administration, and this White House in particular, who have been very blessed and very successful,” said Sean Spicer, the White House press secretary. The officials “have given up a lot to come into government by setting aside a lot of assets,” he said.

Until January, Kushner was chief executive of Kushner Cos., a family run real estate investment firm with holdings across the country. It is a growing business that has taken part in at least $7 billion of acquisitions during the past decade.

Late Friday, the White House released details of the plan devised by his advisers to avoid conflicts of interest between Kushner’s government role and the wide ranging business empire he ran with his father. That business depends on foreign investment from undisclosed sources, as well as billions of dollars in loans from the world’s biggest financial services firms.

Although Kushner has stepped down from his management positions at the more than 200 entities that operated aspects of the family real estate business, he will remain a beneficiary of a vast majority of the business he ran for the past decade, through a series of trusts that already owned the various real estate companies.

The plan laid out on Friday “is not sufficient,” said Larry Noble, a former general counsel and chief ethics officer for the Federal Election Commission. “While removing himself from the management of the businesses is an important step, he is still financially benefiting from how the businesses do. This presents potential for a conflict of interest. Given his level in the White House and broad portfolio, it’s hard to see how he will recuse himself from everything that may impact his financial interest.”

While the filing discloses Kushner’s personal lenders, it does not provide information on his business partners or lenders to his projects.

His real estate firm has borrowed money from the likes of Goldman Sachs, the Blackstone Group, Deutsche Bank and the French bank Natixis. Justice Department investigation into allegations that it helped wealthy Americans evade taxes using undeclared accounts.

Most recently, his firm’s flagship property at 666 Fifth Ave. in Manhattan was the subject of controversy: Around the time his father in law received the Republican nomination last spring, Kushner’s firm began conversations with a Chinese company with ties to some of the Communist Party’s leading families about a plan to invest billions of dollars in the troubled office tower.

Kushner’s company and the firm, Anbang Insurance Group, agreed to end the talks Wednesday after weeks of negative publicity about the deal, criticized as a bailout of the Kushners. The building had already been rescued by a number of prominent firms, including the private equity giant Carlyle Group, and Zara, the Spanish fashion retailer founded and owned by Amancio Ortega, one of the world’s wealthiest men.

Kushner has divested his stakes in any businesses connected to that property.

The disclosures do not reveal the names of investors and lenders to ventures that Kushner is retaining a stake in. For example, the form shows Kushner is retaining a stake in a limited liability corporation that owns a Trump branded luxury rental high rise building in Jersey City, New Jersey, worth as much as $5 million. That project was financed with tens of millions of dollars from wealthy Chinese investors through a controversial visa for sale program called EB 5.

However, the filing does not disclose the names of any of those investors or partners in any of his other projects.

“We don’t know who the business partners are in many of these investments,” Noble said, “and those business partners may also have interests that will be affected by how he advises the government. And that’s a concern.”

“He could have foreign business partners who have a real interest in policy, and he may be advising the president on those policies,” Noble added. “This is a dark area where we just don’t know what’s going on.”

In all, the Kushner company owns more than 20,000 apartments and approximately 14 million square feet of office space.

Kushner was required to submit some limited financial information for his wife, Ivanka Trump, who will continue to receive payments from the Trump Organization as well as her fashion brand.

Ivanka Trump, who now serves as an assistant to the president, resigned from her leadership roles at both companies. Instead of performance based payments, she will receive fixed payments from T International Realty, the family’s luxury brokerage agency, as well as fixed fees from two entities related to real estate projects, the documents show.

If Tokyo’s underground and loop system is not the most efficient in the world, I’d like to know which city’s is.

As myriad lines lead to scattered sites, it becomes apparent it is easier to navigate the sprawling city from station platforms and underground tracks than through its streets.

The ubiquitous rail maps, a pull out copy of which is included in the latest Lonely Planet Japan,
adidas original trainers Japan's trains toe the line
may look like a game of snakes and ladders gone crazy but it’s a simple matter of following the colours and numbers and letters codes to get anywhere in Tokyo in a snap.

The Shibuya fashion district is station Z01 on the mauve Hanzomon Line; the retail, park and temple area of Ueno is G16 on the grey Hibiya Line and the Tsukiji Fish Market is E18 on the pinky red Oedo Line.

Working out fares is just as easy. The ticket machines have English options, the fares are only a couple of dollars and if your ticket cost doesn’t cover your journey price,

simply pay the difference with a fare adjustment machine or to the ever courteous turnstile staff.

This is a country where the warning signs not to jam one’s fingers in carriage doors are accompanied by a picture of a worried panda.

adidas uk shop Japan’s auto designers draw on tradition

samba adidas Japan’s auto designers draw on tradition

When it comes to car design, the Japanese are literally speaking their own language these days.

The country’s automakers are embarking on a major styling renaissance and digging deep into the local lexicon to describe their upcoming creations. The sensuous curves, avant garde athleticism and high tech Zen were on full parade at last week’s Tokyo Motor Show.

The amped up looks come as Japanese brands race to stand out on the global stage amid the commoditization of technology under the hood and an onslaught of new Asian rivals.

Some brands are leveraging Japan’s cultural heritage drawing inspiration from samurai swords and rock gardens or tapping traditional words such as wa, which means harmony, or ma, which means space. Others are channeling the Japanese aesthetic in more subtle ways to explore new segments or forge a more futuristic anime cool Japan vibe.

Yet the angst is palpable across the board, as design becomes a make or break differentiator.

“For us, it’s very scary,” said Ikuo Maeda, global design chief at Mazda. “So many brands show up from other Asian countries, so being made in Japan is very important to us.”

Pressure is mounting from new demands for autonomous cars, electrification, artificial intelligence and new mobility.

Japan now sees design as a way to break from the pack again.

Swords and gardens

Fresh looks and Japanese DNA were common threads at the Tokyo show.

Mazda unveiled two elegantly sculpted concept cars that preview the next generation of the company’s acclaimed Kodo design language. Maeda said the subtly rounded lines and concave sides were inspired by the slightly curved edges, or sori, of Japanese samurai swords.

Honda clarified its vision for electric cars with a Sports EV Concept, a funky futuristic counterpart to the Urban EV Concept that debuted last month in Frankfurt. Both cars get a high tech gadget feel, like something straight out of Tokyo’s Akihabara electronics town and counterculture haven.

Toyota meanwhile tested the ground for a new segment with two boxy SUV cum family vans, one a futuristic fuel cell vehicle, the other a rugged hybrid.

Even Mitsubishi and Subaru used the home market auto expo to showcase new design directions they hope will inject more emotion and help stoke sales.

Nissan touted its Japanese roots when it unveiled its IMx concept,
adidas uk shop Japan's auto designers draw on tradition
a model that closely telegraphs the future look of Nissan production vehicles.

Outside, the all electric crossover gets a fantastical feel with a plethora of slits and creases that match its next generation drivetrain and autonomous driving technologies.

But inside, Nissan strives for all the serenity of a Buddhist temple. The woodgrain dashboard was inspired by Japanese shoji sliding screen doors, while the flooring and seat fabric motif drew from the karesansui patterns of meticulously raked Japanese rock gardens.

The headrests evoke kumiki, or Japanese interlocking wood puzzles.

“It reflects the Japanese tradition of harmony, or wa,” said Alfonso Albaisa, senior vice president in charge of global design at Nissan.

Hello Kitty harmony

Despite being a Cuban American transplant at the helm of Nissan’s Japanese design studio just south of Tokyo, Albaisa is among the most vocal champions of the Japan aesthetic.

At the Car Design Forum, a gathering of global stylists on the eve of the Tokyo show, Albaisa delivered a lecture expounding on the origins and virtues of the country’s concept of beauty. He peppered the address with the key concepts he said capture the Japanese spirit.

Such words as utsuroi the Buddhist concept of impermanence; iki simple and refined sophistication; and wabi sabi a less is more beauty seen in imperfection.

“I’ve asked all the studios to look into the Japanese DNA of design and tell me what it is. All of them, even in Brazil. And now it’s starting to show up everywhere,” Albaisa said. “It’s also definitely the moment we’re living in with the rise of electrification and autonomous vehicles. I want to reach into that Japanese DNA and make sure it imbues what we’re doing.”

Minimalist simplicity is a key element of the new Japan look.

And few designs express that better than Honda’s new EV creations, unadorned white appliancelike runabouts where form follows function but is also friendly.

Think: Hello Kitty meets Asimo, the Honda humanoid robot.

Honda Sports EV Concept exemplifies the minimalist simplicity that is a key element of the new Japan look. Says the car designer: want to make these cars simple and easy to understand.

“We have come up with this cute looking front, as well as simple and soft plane designs. Cars are becoming more high tech, but they become friendlier to people,

” said Sports EV Concept designer Jun Goto. “We want to make these cars simple and easy to understand.”

adidas originals bucket hat Japan expands Takata air bag recall by about 7 million vehicles

TOKYO (Reuters) Japan’s transport ministry said on Friday automakers will recall about an additional 7 million cars equipped with Takata Corp air bag inflators without a drying agent by March 2019, bringing the total recalled in the country to 19.6 million cars.

Japan’s latest announcement may further ramp up Takata’s potential recall costs if the air bag maker is found to be responsible for the defective inflators.

The company is in bailout talks with a number of potential investors including private equity firm KKR Co , people familiar with the matter told Reuters on Thursday.

The transport ministry said Takata and automakers had found the absence of desiccants could make ammonium nitrate used in the air bag inflators deteriorate when exposed to temperature changes over a long period of time.

The ministry said that the latest recall covers mainly passenger side airbags, and will be conducted in phases. It would not comment on which automakers were affected,

although it said that the number would likely increase from the 17 companies affected so far.

The ammonium nitrate based propellant used in the inflators have a tendency to explode violently in hot, humid conditions, spraying metal shrapnel into vehicle compartments. The defect has been linked to 13 deaths and more than 100 injuries globally, mainly in the United States.

Teresa Fox (nee Weasel Head) O January 25 at 7:05 AM our beloved wife, mother, grandmother, great grandmother, sister, and aunt was taken Home.

Teresa was born on February 10, 1943 to Pat/Mokakin and Paula/Poona (nee Iron) Weasel Head. She was the youngest biological daughter of 15 children. During her upbringing, her parents raised her in the traditional Blackfoot ceremonies and as a little girl she was transferred with them into the Medicine Pipe Bundle, Aihtsi the age of seven, Teresa was placed in the St. Mary Indian Residential School on the Blood Reserve. Only going home at Christmas and summer, where she would be at the Aokokatsin. She began playing the organ at the age of 13 and would play at all masses, at times three masses a day. She skipped grade 8 and was placed in grade 9 with her brother Moses. In Grade 10, her final year at St. Mary she was in the same class as her future husband Tony, who had returned from St. Thomas College. In order for Teresa to complete a grade 12 education she had to leave the reserve she attended several nearby schools, including Cardston and St. Mike (Pincher Creek). She then left to attend Legal High School, which was unconventional for her very traditional parents. Upon completion of grade 12, Teresa expressed interest to attend teaching school in Saskatchewan, however, the priest refused to support her. She then turned to her sister, Helen MacDougall, to assist her application process for the St. Michael School of Nursing, which she began in 1963.

In 1964, Teresa was reunited with the love of her life, Tony. After being together for two years and having their eldest child, Tony and Teresa were married on May 14, 1966 with Fr. Marvin Fox, Oblate Priest presiding. Mom and Dad had 2 more children all the while mom was going to nursing school and practicums that included Ponoka, Fort Macleod, and the Blood Indian Hospital.

Chief Shot Both Sides hand picked Teresa to be part of the health committee, and she was instrumental in the development of the Blood Tribe Health Department.

She did not serve again until 2015 17.

She received her certificate for Pastoral Biblical Theology from the Newman College in 2003. Mom was in right relationship with both her Maker and the Church, receiving Holy Communion until her last day. Mom was devoted to her Rosary and this was being said by her family as she took her last breathe.

Mom was a devoted wife, mother, grandmother, great grandmother, auntie, and sister. Mom and Dad were devoted to one another and their vows and they were honored by their children who organized their 50th Wedding Anniversary Celebration on May 14, 2016. Mom was very supportive of dad and their ranch in the hills where for a time they raised competitive racing quarter horses. The highlight of their competitive career was racing their favorite horse, Liberty Oh. Mom was a great inspiration to her family in all they did, she sacrificed much of herself to foster her families passions in their own endeavours including rodeo, hockey, figure skating and most especially their educational journeys.

Mom had a very large family. She was a compassionate woman who held many dear in her life. Due to this, the family apologizes for not mentioning everyone.

adidas weightlifting shoes Janklow Declares War on Foot and Mouth Disease

adidas fleece Janklow Declares War on Foot and Mouth Disease

Janklow says he doesn’t minimize the loss of life during World War II or the Korean and Vietnam wars, but he says a disease that could wipe out South Dakota’s livestock population would be devastating.

“The tourism industry, for all practical purposes, would be shut down. The trucking industry wouldn’t have any livestock to haul, the packing plants would have to close,” says Janklow. “The impact that would have on implement dealers, on car dealers, on Main Street this isn’t just a deal where some farmers and ranchers would lose livestock. It’s an economic thing that would wreck South Dakota.”

Janklow wants to be ready to limit the spread of foot and mouth disease, but he says a vital first step is to understand the disease. His day long conference looked at the foot and mouth outbreak in Britain, and also addressed other contagious livestock diseases like mad cow.

Minnesota veterinarian Dale Neirby spent April in England assisting with the foot and mouth disease outbreak. He says earlier this week there were reports in England of two more farms contaminated, so the disease is still not under control. He says the outbreak began from contaminated food garbage at a hog farm. farms.

“The garbage was contaminated, it wasn’t cooked adequately, and those pigs became infected. It spread through the air a mile away to a dairy and sheep farm.”

Neirby says five days later, 40 of those sheep were shipped off to market and the disease spread over 300 miles within 10 days. Neirby says it’s important to learn from the European outbreak and prepare for the worse in the United States. He says there are many decisions that can be made now.

Gov. Bill Janklow says he’s made those decisions. If foot and mouth disease enters the United States he says he’ll put the National Guard, Highway Patrol, and game, fish and parks conservation officers on alert. He’ll close all livestock sale barns and prohibit packing plants from receiving any out of state livestock. If the disease is confirmed in a neighboring state, he says he’ll take control of the state public television and radio stations, prohibit all livestock movement into and within the state, close all packing plants and seek federal disaster protection. If the disease is suspected within the state, he says he’ll ban all movement of farm vehicles and prohibit free flow movement of all humans within the infected counties. If it’s confirmed in the state, all livestock and wildlife in those counties will be killed.

“I can’t tell you if it’s going to come. But I can tell you if it comes we’re going to treat it faster and quicker like war than anyone in this country has seen or any other country has dealt with. Does that mean we’ll win? It doesn’t.

Janklow says his plan is open to modification, and he’s currently asking the Department of Environment and Natural Resources to identify possible sites acceptable for massive burning and burial of livestock. Janklow is the first to say he hopes his plan will never have to be implemented.

adidas ar 2.0 Jani’s at the mercy of her mind

new adidas boots Jani’s at the mercy of her mind

It’s been a rough week. A few days ago, at UCLA’s Resnick Neuropsychiatric Hospital, 6 year old Jani toppled a food cart and was confined to her room. She slammed her head against the floor, opening a bloody cut that sent her into hysterics. Later, she kicked the hospital therapy dog.

Jani normally likes animals. But most of her animal friends cats, rats, dogs and birds are phantoms that only she can see. January Schofield has schizophrenia. Potent psychiatric drugs in doses that would stagger most adults seem to skip off her. She is among the rarest of the rare: a child seemingly born mentally ill.

She suffers from delusions, hallucinations and paroxysms of rage so severe that not even her parents feel safe. She’s threatened to climb into an oven. She’s kicked and tried to bite her little brother. “I’m Jani, and I have a cat named Emily 54,” she says, by way of introduction. “And I’m Saturn the Rat’s baby sitter.”

She locks her fingers in front of her chest and flexes her wrists furiously, a tic that surfaces when she’s anxious.

She announces that she wants to be a veterinarian.

“I’m empathetic with rats,” she says.

Asked what “empathetic” means, she smiles confidently. “It means you like rats.”

The doctors have been trying a new antipsychotic medication, called Moban. Jani knows she is sick and that people want to help her.

“Is the Moban working?” her mother asks Jani during a visit.

“No. I have more friends.”

Susan Schofield looks crestfallen.

She and her husband, Michael Schofield, have brought French fries. Jani takes a bite, runs around the room and circles back for another bite.

“You want the rats and cats to go away, don’t you?” Susan asks, trying to make eye contact with her daughter.

Jani stuffs a French fry into her mouth.

“No,” she says. “They’re cool. Rats are cool.”About 1% of adults have schizophrenia; most become ill in their late teens or 20s. Approximately one in 10 will commit suicide.

Doctors and other mental health experts don’t fully understand the disease, which has no cure. Jani’s extreme early onset has left them almost helpless. The rate of onset in children 13 and under is about one in 30,000 to 50,000. In a national study of 110 children, only one was diagnosed as young as age 6.

“Child onset schizophrenia is 20 to 30 times more severe than adult onset schizophrenia,” says Dr. Nitin Gogtay, a neurologist at the National Institute of Mental Health who helps direct the children’s study, the largest such study in the world on the illness.

“Ninety five percent of the time they are awake these kids are actively hallucinating,” Gogtay says. “I don’t think I’ve seen anything more devastating in all of medicine.”

For Jani’s parents, the most pressing issue is where Jani should live. She has been on the UCLA psych ward where she was placed during an emergency since Jan. 16. The ward is not designed for long term care.

Jani can’t return to her family’s apartment in Valencia. Last fall,

she tried to jump out of a second story window.

Her parents Michael, a college English instructor, and Susan, a former radio traffic reporter must decide how to provide as much stability as possible for their daughter while also trying to protect their 18 month old son.

“If Jani was 16, there would be resources,” Michael says. “But very few hospitals, private or public, will take a 6 year old.”

Born Aug. 8, 2002, Jani was different from the start, sleeping fitfully for only about four hours a day. Most infants sleep 14 to 16 hours a day. Only constant, high energy stimulation kept Jani from screaming.

“For the first 18 months, we would take her to malls, play areas, IKEA, anywhere we could find crowds,” says Michael, 33. “It was impossible to overstimulate her. We would leave at 8 in the morning and be gone for 14 hours. We could not come home until Jani had been worn out enough so that she would sleep a couple of hours.”

When Jani turned 3, her tantrums escalated. She lasted three weeks in one preschool and one week in another. She demanded to be called by different names; Rainbow one day, Blue eyed Tree Frog the next. Make believe friends filled her days mostly rats and cats and, sometimes, little girls.

She threw her shoes at people when angry and tried to push the car out of gear while Michael was driving. The usual disciplinary strategies parents use to teach their young children proper behavior time outs, rules, positive rewards failed time and again for the Schofields.

“She would go into these rages where she would scream, hit, kick, scratch and bite. She could say, ‘Mommy, I love you,’ and seconds later switch into being really violent,
