Famed college basketball coach reveals off-court battle with bipolar disorder

first_img Beau Lund FacebookTwitterLinkedInEmailMatt_Brown/iStockBy DANIELLE GENET and KATIE KINDELAN, ABC News(NEW YORK) — Joanne P. McCallie, known as “Coach P” on the court, has led her women’s basketball teams through many battles over the past 28 years, most recently as the head coach of Duke University’s women’s basketball team.Now McCallie, a married mother of two, is opening up about an off-court battle she has faced: Bipolar disorder.“It was out of the clear blue sky at one of the best times of my life,” McCallie said of the bipolar diagnosis she received at the age of 30. “I struggled early with all the mental assessments and the constant feelings of anxiety and inadequacies. Would I ever be me again?”Bipolar disorder, or manic-depressive illness, is “a brain disorder that causes unusual shifts in mood, energy, activity levels, and the ability to carry out day-to-day tasks,” according to the National Institute of Mental Health (NIMH).Nearly 3% of U.S. adults had bipolar disorder in the past year, according to the NIMH.McCallie, 55, opens up about her own journey with bipolar disorder in her new memoir, Secret Warrior: A Coach & Fighter, On and Off the Court. The book was released Tuesday, more than six months after McCallie stepped away from her 13-year career as the head coach at Duke.McCallie said revealing her bipolar diagnosis publicly at this time in her life and career was the “only way to do it fairly.”“It would have been terrible for my teams to bring a huge distraction and to bring it publicly,” she said Wednesday on ABC News’ Good Morning America. “And to be quite frank, I don’t think I was ready. I think it takes some time and maturity to be able to tell your story and to tell it in a heartfelt matter with truth behind it, no denial.”McCallie, who said she hopes to continue coaching in some capacity in the future, used her experience to take a team approach to treating her bipolar disorder.“It’s so important for people out there to know that they’re not alone, and speaking from a coach’s perspective, to build your team,” she said. “You’ve got to have a team of people behind you — people that know your truth, that love you for who you are and that can reach out and make a difference in your life.”“Don’t go alone. Don’t ever try to manage your brain health alone,” McCallie said. “There are so many people out there who can help.”McCallie, who is also a cancer survivor, said she wants people with bipolar disorder to know the importance of understanding their own brain.“You have to be honest with yourself. You have to self-analyze,” she said. “You have to understand the power of the brain and do all of the little things — exercise, eat right, get your good sleep — do what you need to do to be in your best health possible.”Copyright © 2021, ABC Audio.

TGS makes sells multi-client seismic data for carbon capture project

TGS today announced that it has completed the sale of one of its seismic datasets to OGCI Climate Investments’ Net Zero Teesside project, a carbon capture, utilization and storage (CCUS) initiative planned for the North East of England. The data is to be used to verify the suitability for storage of CO2 in offshore reservoirs located in the Permian Gas Basin in the Southern North Sea.Net Zero Teesside is an integrated CCUS project backed by OGCI Climate Investments, with direct project support from six of the largest oil and gas companies globally: BP, ENI, Equinor, Occidental Petroleum, Shell and Total. OGCI Climate Investments and its partners are working closely with the UK Government on a supportive policy framework to enable the UK to become a leader and exporter of CCUS technologies globally.Colin McGill, Net Zero Teesside Project Director, said, “To be able to remove carbon dioxide emissions and store them deep underground – preventing them from being released into the atmosphere – means we need to be 100 percent sure that the reservoir chosen is fit-for-purpose. Our agreement with TGS allows us to carefully analyze the geology of the reservoirs and make the correct decisions that will sustain our CCUS operations for millennia to come.”Fredrik Amundsen, Executive Vice President, Europe and Russia at TGS, said, “The use of seismic data from TGS in the development of this landmark UK CCUS project is an important initiative for us as it marks the start of what could become a growing business area in the coming years. We recognize the need to actively engage in projects that support the energy transition and working with Net Zero Teesside is a recognition that our data can and will be used in new ways in the future.” Source: Company Press Release The data is to be used to verify the suitability for storage of CO2 in offshore reservoirs located in the Permian Gas Basin in the Southern North Sealast_img read more

Fit for human habitation legislation passes second hurdle in Parliament

first_imgHome » News » Fit for human habitation legislation passes second hurdle in Parliament previous nextFit for human habitation legislation passes second hurdle in Parliament”Important” Private Members Bill takes a step further towards becoming law, most crucially this time around with government support.Nigel Lewis22nd January 201802,021 Views A bill requiring landlords and agents to ensure rental properties are fit for human habitation and enabling tenants to chase them for compensation when they don’t maintain them took its second step through the House of Commons on Friday.The Homes (Fitness for Human Habitation and Liability for Housing Standards) Bill passed its second reading in Parliament during an hour-and-a-half long debate lead by the bill’s sponsor Karen Buck, MP for Westminster North (pictured, above).Her bill, for the first time, frames what ‘fit for human habitation’ means and outlines the new regulations that agents will have to ensure properties stick to.Landlords and agents already have to ensure properties are not kept in a state of ‘disrepair’ but now ‘unfit’ will cover issues such as fire safety, inadequate heating, poor ventilation, condensation and mould.At the moment landlords and agents are only obliged to repair the structure of a property when it’s broken or damaged, but when the bill becomes law most likely later this year, they will have wider responsibilities for the condition of the property.Fit for human habitationThe debate included contributions from Clive Betts MP (pictured, right), who also chairs the Ministry of Housing, Communities and Local Government Select Committee, as well as Bob Blackman and Lucy Allen. She revealed that her Telford constituency had a long history of “private rental property which had been neglected”.Karen Buck was praised for her tenacity in bringing the bill to the house, and gaining cross-party support for it. It was also revealed that poor quality housing costs the NHS £1.4 billion a year.Despite the good cheer, there were several conflicting statements made including that although “the vast majority of landlords act responsibly”, one in six privately rented properties are not fit for human habitation.“In future tenants will be able to act against landlords to force them to take remedial action, and obtain compensation when they do not,” Karen Buck said during her speech.During the debate it was said by another MP that the bill was “well balanced because it gives tenants new rights, but also offers safeguards for landlords”.Read about more debates about property in parliament.Read the proposed legislation in full.Homes (Fitness for Human Habitation and Liability for Housing Standards) Bill Labour Karen Buck Clive Betts Conservative Fit for human habitation January 22, 2018Nigel LewisWhat’s your opinion?

This digital door app says it will revolutionise property access for agents

first_imgHome » News » This digital door app says it will revolutionise property access for agents previous nextProducts & ServicesThis digital door app says it will revolutionise property access for agentsKlevio One is a mobile-phone controlled access system that, if it takes off, will end the need for physical keys and enable tenants and homeowners to grant access remotely.Nigel Lewis24th May 201801,184 Views Sales and letting agents who curse their daily battle with keys and property access may soon have an easier life if a mobile-phone controlled door lock and property access system launched today takes off.Klevio One is a ‘smart intercom’ that enables home owners and renters to open their doors with their mobile phones, and share ‘electronic keys’ with agents requiring access to their property.Claimed to be the first of its kind in the UK, its introduction follows a pilot with 1,000 users in London and will be launched outside the capital later this year, backed with £1.2 million from several prominent angel investors including holiday company onefinestay.com.Should the idea take off, Klevio claims, keys may become a distant memory for many homeowners and renters.Mobile phoneThe property access system is essentially a digital online platform that enables existing intercom and door locking systems to be controlled from anywhere via a mobile phone app.Landlords, for example, will be able to remotely open the door of a flat to a letting agent doing a viewing or investigating a leak.“Keys were invented thousands of years ago, and having a piece of metal sitting in your pocket today feels odd,” says Klevio founder Demetrios Zoppos (pictured).“Now imagine managing thousands of keys for lots of properties [and] the logistics are complicated. Users keep their existing locks and old keys as a backup, and the use of Klevio is not obvious to anyone outside the building.”Greg Marsh, onefinestay co-founder and an early investor in Klevio, says: “Managing multiple properties is hard. At onefinestay we managed thousands of high end homes in city centres.“And when we realised how much time we were wasting getting keys to our guests, we started working on the keyless entry system that has today been perfected as Klevio One.”Read more about property access.klevio one property access Demetrios Zoppos door access viewings May 24, 2018Nigel LewisWhat’s your opinion?

Where have all the vendors gone? Housing supply hits record low in March

Housing supply hits record low in MarchNAEA says the levels of sellers and buyers ‘aren’t where we’d expect them to be’ during what is traditionally the busiest month of the year for agents.Nigel Lewis30th April 201901,050 Views The supply of homes for sale in the UK hit a record low for the month of March, the National Association of Estate Agents (NAEA) has claimed.Its monthly snapshot of estate agent inventory has discovered that there were just 37 properties for sale on average at each branch of its members, an all-time low.The supply of properties during what is traditionally the busiest month in the property calendar has been steadily declining in recent years. In 2013 the figure was 60 properties per branch.The shocking figure comes despite a month-on-month increase of 9% from February and is also matched by a six-year low in demand for homes, the NAEA says.House huntersSome 286 house hunters were registered with each branch, the lowest figure since 2013 and 25% down on March 2017 when each branch had 397 prospective buyers on their books.The number of sales per branch fell as well, from eight during March 2017 to seven sales this year.“Despite the fact that activity in the housing market increased in March, the levels of supply and demand recorded aren’t where we would expect them to be at this time of year,” says Mark Hayward, Chief Executive of the NAEA.“It’s clear buyers and sellers are still feeling cautious and holding off on making any decisions in light of the current political climate and economic uncertainty.“However, recent house price data indicates we might see confidence in the market grow as house prices slowly begin to return to previous levels and we edge closer to the summer months.”  National Association of Estate Agents Mark Hayward NAEA April 30, 2019Nigel LewisWhat’s your opinion?

London property market to revive in 2020 claims leading house builder

first_imgThe UK’s best-known house builder and founder of Berkeley Homes, Tony Pidgley  (pictured, above), has called the bottom of the property market in London and claimed that the capital’s housing market will see a ‘revival’ next year.Berkeley Group’s 72-year-old chairman made the comments over the weekend as he revealed that his company is to pay food store Morrisons £120 million for a site in Camden, central London.The company is to build a new 40,000 sq ft store at the site as well as 450 homes and 100,000 sq ft of office space.The project is one of several that Berkeley has acquired within inner London recently as it gambles that the next few years will see a revival in the London housing market despite punishing Stamp Duty bills for buyers and the lingering effects of Brexit. “Pidgely always calls the market right,” says property PR guru and former eMoov CEO Russell Quirk (left). “If he says London will recover in 2020 and has bet £120m on it – follow him.”His ability to correctly call the UK housing market is well documented. He sold off assets prior to the housing crash of 1989 and was among the first to spot that people were moving back into city centres in the early Nineties.During the financial crisis Berkeley, which specialises in expensive properties in London and the South East, avoided the turmoil that swept through the wider housing market following the financial crash.Pidgley subsequently spent the downturn snapping up prime sites in places such as Battersea and Wapping in London. berek berkeley group Berkeley Homes Russell Quirk tony pidgley December 16, 2019Nigel LewisWhat’s your opinion?

Number of money laundering SARs made by estate agents drops

first_imgEstate agents reported 10.5% fewer anti-money laundering related Suspicious Activity Reports (SARs) to the National Crime Agency (NCA) during its latest six-month reporting period.The agency received 635 SARs from estate agents between September 2018 and March 2019, down from just over 700 the year before.The vast majority of SARs come from banks, building societies and other financial bodies and institutions and overall the number of SARs announced by the NCA increased by 3.3% to 478,437.SARs from estate agents still represent just 0.13% of this total although other professions are also required to report SARs including lawyers, solicitors, luxury goods dealers and betting websites and shops.Terrorist SARsThe money laundering figures also reveal that seven terrorist financing SARs were reported by estate agents during the period.The NCA has been busy in the property sector this year including ramping up visits to estate agency branches to inspect their compliance, most famously at Purplebricks which was ‘in discussions’ with the NCA during August this year.It has been claimed that a fifth of estate agents have been fined over poor AML procedures including fines for several agencies including Countrywide and Settled.co.uk.The latest upgrade to the EU’s AML regulations is due to become UK law on 10th January.It is due to extend the reach of AML law to cover letting agents handling properties offered to let at more than £5,000 a month, but the distractions of Brexit and last week’s General Election mean this is unlikely to take place until later this year.Read more about AML.NCA National Crime Agency AML anti money laundering SARs Suspicious Activity Reports December 16, 2019Nigel LewisWhat’s your opinion?
