the Boston Celtics are looking to bounce back from giving up the home ground they discovered with their split in Miami. Marcus Smart and Robert Williams are both questionable and their status could play a huge role in the outcome of Game 4. miami heat also have their own injury issues, with Jimmy Butler being questionable with a knee issue. No MRI was needed and the injury doesn’t appear to be serious, but it’s something he treated during the regular season. DraftKings Sportsbook has the Celtics favored by 6.5 points, with a total of 208. Since the All-Star break, including the playoffs, Boston has lost consecutive games only once.

Let’s review the fantastic prospects for Showdown contest on DraftKings.


Define your DraftKings fantastic basketball lineups here: NBA Showdown $700,000 Shootaround [$150K to 1st] (MIA vs. BOS)


Captain’s Choice

Jayson Tatum ($16,500) – Tatum was terrible in Game 3, scoring just 10 points on 3-for-14 shooting. He finished with 21 DKFP. I expect it to bounce back in a big way for game 4. Recency bias could also transfer some ownership to Adebayo and Brown, especially since they are both cheaper and have had some great games on Saturday. The usage rate was only 23.3% in Game 3 for Tatum, after being 27.5% and 30.2% in the first two games. The playoffs are all about adjustments, so the defensive attention pendulum may swing back to Brown with the usage rate bouncing back for Tatum. In those playoffs, Tatum won over 40 DKFPs in 11 of 14 games with two over 60s. Against the Bucks, he put up 24.3 DKFPs and then responded with 55.8 in the next contest.

Jimmy Butler ($15,900) – Butler only played 20 minutes in Game 3 due to knee pain. It is debatable but no MRI was necessary. With Adebayo having a Game 3 monster and the questionable tag for Butler, ownership could move away from Butler. If I go with a Heat player, it will be Butler. The floor/ceiling is the best of the team and there could be depressed ownership. In those playoffs, Butler has topped 50 DKFP eight times with four of 60 and a game-high 72.8. Adjustments will be made for Adebayo and the potential return of Robert Williams could also be considered.

FLEX games

Robert Williams ($6,400) – Williams is questionable for Game 4, so make sure he plays first. He has improved and I think he is playing in this critical contest. In the first two games of the series, he played 28 and 20 minutes, producing 34.3 and 17.5 DKFP. In that 17.5 DKFP game, the Celtics won by 25 points. When he’s on the court, he racks up rebounds, defensive stats, and gets tons of alley-oops. His defensive presence could be vital in limiting Adebayo.

Jaylen Brown ($9,800) – Brown went for 40 points in Game 3 and finished with 54.8 DKFP. Nobody on the Heat can keep him one-on-one because he’s able to get to the rim at will and his downtown pull has been pure. There were shooting efficiency issues at times during the season, but in this playoff he only shot below 40% once with seven games over 50% . Against Miami, he shot 70%, 52.9% and 41.2%.

Value

Caleb Martin ($1,400) – Martin played 13, 18 and 10 minutes during this series. He’s gone for 10 and 13.8 DKFP in the last two games. In those playoffs, he produced a double-digit DKFP in six contests. He will not play more than 20 minutes, but when he is on the ground, he will lift his punches. The utilization rate was 20%, 18.2% and 13.8% this series.

Fades

Bam Adebayo ($7,600) – Adebayo was fantastic in Game 3, finishing with 31 points, 10 rebounds, six assists, one block and four steals. It was good for 63.5 DKFP. Adebayo is a fantastic and very talented player, but it was an outlier performance. Butler has only played 20 minutes and in the previous four playoff games, Adebayo has scored less than 26 DKFPs in all. He scored at least 40 DKFP just five times in these playoffs. The Celtics are going to make adjustments for Adebayo and Williams’ potential return could help with that.

The result

As mentioned in the intro, the Celtics have only lost two games in a row since the All-Star break. In Game 3, they shot a higher percentage than the Heat and won the rebound and free throw battles. Unfortunately, they committed 24 turnovers which led to 33 points for Miami. I expect them to take care of the ball in Game 4 and win convincingly.

Final score: Celtics 108, Heat 94

Mukilteo turns to community engagement for a waterfront vision https://disasterrecoveryplaybook.org/mukilteo-turns-to-community-engagement-for-a-waterfront-vision/ Sat, 21 May 2022 04:37:42 +0000 https://disasterrecoveryplaybook.org/mukilteo-turns-to-community-engagement-for-a-waterfront-vision/ MUKILTEO, Wash., May 20, 2022 – The Port of Everett turned to a series of community engagement strategies by asking residents of Mukilteo their vision for the waterfront redevelopment project.

MUKILTEO, Wash., May 20, 2022 – The Port of Everett turned to a series of community engagement strategies by asking residents of Mukilteo their vision for the waterfront redevelopment project. One of these outreach activities is a community survey available until May 26asking the people of Mukilteo what they want and don’t want to see from the project over the next decade or so.

Postcards were sent to thousands of Mukilteo residents with a QR code allowing easy access to the survey, also accessible online. As of May 18, the port had received 509 responses.

“My vision is to implement the community’s vision,” Port of Everett CEO Lisa Lefeber told the Lynnwood Times, “I want to see the waterfront accessible and enjoyable, what it looks like, it’s what this process will determine.”

Most recently, the port, architectural firm NBBJ and the town of Mukilteo held an open house on May 5 at the Rosehill Community Center, to provide an opportunity for feedback and discussion with a wider community. Residents were invited to participate in the decision-making process and to post their ideas or concerns, via sticky notes, on bulletin boards.

“Overall, we are very pleased to see this level of engagement and public input so far,” Catherine Soper, director of communications and marketing, said in a statement to the Lynnwood Times. “We had around 250 people at the open day and the polls keep rolling in every day. The vast majority of interactions during the open house were positive. Attendees were very grateful for the awareness on this topic and overall pleased to see the progress being made for the waterfront. »

Mukilteo Councilman Jason Moon shared his admiration for the waterfront with The Times.

“My sons and I love going to the waterfront and buying ice cream, so I’d like to amp that up,” Councilman Jason Moon told the Lynnwood Times. “Amplify a place where families come to enjoy a natural environment as well as amenities like food and coffee. The key is to provide a place that people can enjoy and that is not overbuilt.

About Waterfront Redevelopment

The Mukilteo waterfront is unique in that it has 11 landowners, on 26 acres, 70% of which is still undeveloped. In addition to private owners, the main stakeholders are the Port of Everett, the City of Mukilteo and the State of Washington.

A complicated history with government use and property transfers held back development for nearly two decades until 2013, when the National Oceanic and Atmospheric Administration (NOAA) canceled plans to build a new 40-meter facility. million on the waterfront, leaving the property to the Port of Everett.

On January 4, 2016, City Council adopted the Downtown Waterfront Master Plan. The plan outlines a revitalized downtown waterfront that includes local businesses, a looping pedestrian boardwalk, bike paths and recreational waterfront uses. The goal is for residents and visitors to experience a natural shoreline while celebrating the past, present and future of the Mukilteo waterfront. It incorporates changes to the location of ferry loading and loading bays, while improving pedestrian mobility.

The Port of Everett hired NBBJ, a Seattle-based architecture, planning, and design firm, to help with this process and vision planning through 2022, and formed a stakeholder working group which represents the various interests and attractions of the waterfront; this group was intentionally a small group representing the general interests of the waterfront.

This stakeholder group has already had three working group sessions to discuss the current opportunities and constraints of the waterfront, its vision for its future and the important principles on which future planning and discussions should focus and have interviewed members of Mukilteo City Council to gather feedback, develop a draft vision statement and draft set of guiding principles.

“When you get 21,000 residents trying to craft a vision and guiding principles in one room, you’re not going anywhere,” said Port of Everett CEO Lisa Lefeber. “What we’ve learned is that if you bring together a group of diverse stakeholders who are basically the ones who are responsible for taking all of that feedback into consideration and making sure that what comes out the other end matches and reflects the feedback we receive, it’s more effective and everyone has a chance to have their say.

The Waterfront’s draft vision statement states: The Mukilteo waterfront is brimming with adventure, culture, and economic opportunity for the community and region. It is an equitable and convenient gathering place, which provides a sustainable mix of uses for year-round enjoyment and promotes access to the beach and the wonders of the Salish Sea.

During these conversations, it was determined that the waterfront should be “authentically Mukilteo”, have “thoughtful parking”, pedestrian-friendly, eco-friendly and sustainability-conscious, celebrate culture, focus on education, a transportation hub, have boating and shore access, and be a year-round destination.

The next steps are to present the vision statement and guiding principles to Mukilteo City Council and the Harbor Commission in June, once the survey results are in, and to begin a planning schedule this fall.

Mukilteo Waterfront: parking controversies

Mukilteo’s waterfront car park remains a fenced vacant lot after the city rejected plans to use it as a dining hall and open-air car park last year.

For months the parking lot was used as a retail and waterfront parking lot at near capacity, but after the owners were told by Community Development Manager David Osaki that an order from the city ​​prohibits parking at this site, they fenced it on September 2, 2021, with a sign that said “NO PARKING. Mukilteo City code does not allow commercial parking. Call Mukilteo City or Members of the city council for more details.

Mukilteo Landing LLC co-owners Bill Tacket and Patrick McCord, who own part of the parking lot, were approached by the Town of Mukilteo just over a decade ago and asked if they would be willing to sell their property so that the City can expand the waiting lanes for the ferries. They made a deal to tear down the Buzz Inn steakhouse to expand the tracks, and were told the city would swap ownership after the new ferry terminal was built. The owners did not know if or when they would receive the property until a year ago.

“It’s a shame when there’s such a need for shoppers and people wanting to take advantage of the waterfront, and the car park at Lighthouse Park and the Diamond Knot Brewery is always full. It’s a pity that the city does not consider a property from the angle of its use even if it is temporary. Logic and common sense must prevail,” McCord told the Lynnwood Times.

Following the relocation of the Mukilteo/Clinton Ferry Terminal in December 2020, Washington State Ferries’ lease expired on August 31, 2021. Tacket and McCord, planning to reclaim the property, approached the city asking to use it for a additional parking at the water’s edge. The City originally informed them of a current city ordinance that prevents the use of commercial parking, expiring in December 2023, and if they wanted to use the space as temporary parking while waiting for the expiration of the prescription, they could.

The zoning code defines commercial parking as follows: “Commercial parking lots means land designed for the parking of more than two vehicles, which is within or adjacent to a commercial or industrial district and for which there is an hourly, daily, weekly or monthly charge for parking a private vehicle.

The owners opened up the space for parking, but were later told by the City that since there was no related commercial enterprise, it could not be permitted for temporary commercial parking under zoning. current.

“The problem is that the queuing lanes at the old ferry terminal do not meet these requirements to enable its conversion into a temporary commercial car park. Among other things, the main use (the ferry terminal) was not on the same ‘plot’ as the ferry terminal’s retaining tracks,” Osaki told the Lynnwood Times.

After feeling discouraged by the city’s shutting down of any ideas they had for their property, McCord and Tacket have no idea what their next steps are.

“We are basically at a loss. I don’t see the harm in letting the public use this. Obviously it will be difficult to park in the coming years there,” Tacket told the Lynnwood Times.

On August 5, 2021, Ivar’s began outdoor dining services in the parklet. The Mukilteo Fire Marshal on August 6, 2021 told Ivar in person at the restaurant that they would need flood, shoreline and land use permits, and added that the exit gate was too two inches short, which Ivar’s management simply picked up and moved to comply with the requirement.

When Tacket and McCord of Mukilteo Landing LLC heard about Ivar’s attempt to open outdoor seating, they offered their portion of the property to the restaurant for the additional 13 parking spaces required by the city.

He later determined that the parklet’s $3,000 improvement costs were less than the $7,000 minimum that exempted Ivar’s from the public hearing requirement the city was trying to impose on the restaurant before he cannot use the space.

The port has worked closely with the city and Ivar to redevelop the park, revitalize the old ferry to provide visitors with an outdoor dining area, and improve public access to the waterfront. Lisa Lefeber informed the Lynnwood Times that should be open Memorial Day weekend.

As part of the transfer to the port, NOAA will demolish all structures that should provide an opportunity for interim access to the waterfront. Demolition is scheduled for this spring.

This story will continue to be updated as new results come in. Since ballots could be mailed out on Election Day starting this year, election officials warn the winners may not be known for several days. Election offices expect the vote tally after Tuesday to rise more than in previous years due to valid ballots arriving at counting locations up to seven days after the election.

Tuesday night’s election data from Marion County shows incumbent Paige Clarkson continuing to hold the lead over Salem-area attorney Spencer Todd in the race for Marion County prosecutor.

Early results put Clarkson ahead of his challenger, and the updated ballot tally around 11:30 p.m. showed Clarkson with 53% of the vote; Todd with 47%. Another batch of results are expected to be released after 5 p.m. Wednesday.

Chatters aren’t necessarily better at extracting money from subscribers than a creator who manages their own inbox; in fact, they may be worse. “You should do your homework very well on who you hire,” a 29-year-old OnlyFans creator, who goes by Sonia LeBeau, told me. She has worked with agencies in the past and had negative experiences with them. At one point, the chatters hired to impersonate her did such a poor job that her most loyal subscribers realized they were being duped. She apologized to all of her followers and resumed replying to their messages herself. Still, she said, agencies can offer significant benefits, especially for large accounts. Multiple chatters can work simultaneously, and they can clock in for back-to-back shifts, ensuring no message goes unanswered. Popular accounts often receive so many messages that it would be nearly impossible for one person to reply to them all; unanswered messages mean there is money left on the table. Then there are all the other tasks required of an OnlyFans Creator, like content creation and external social media marketing, which take time to respond to DMs. Chatting eases the burden.

Chatters also offer creators a buffer of their followers, who can be rude, stingy, or worse. “Are you constantly glued to your phone negotiating prices for custom videos with hundreds of lonely, broke creeps? Sounds like fun!” reads a post on Think Expansion’s website, touting its services to models. Dallas thinks most OnlyFans models with large followings have some sort of team in their corner. “It gets overwhelming constantly creating content, promoting and maintaining 20, 30, 50+ conversations a day,” he wrote.

Around the world, however, there is a vast pool of workers willing to have these conversations, often for wages less than what Americans make flipping burgers. Back in February, I spoke on Zoom with Andre, a talker in Manila who works for a Barcelona-based OnlyFans agency called KC Incorporation. He declined to give his last name: although he finds the job satisfying, he doesn’t think his family would approve of it. Many western companies rely on outsourced workforce in the Philippines for customer service and data entry. Prior to his current role, Andre worked at a T-Mobile call center. Now he works a daily four-hour shift messaging a model’s followers. When his shift is over, he logs out of the account and another chatty logs in, picking up the conversations where he left off.

During his time as a gossip, Andre became intimately familiar with the whims and desires of subscribers. Over time, he’s learned something of a sex work cliché: More than sexual gratification, he says, a lot of guys just want someone to talk to. Facilitating these familiar conversations is good for business. “Seeing that ‘Oh, this person has been messaging me for a few weeks straight,'” he said, “we’re taking notice of these people.” André said that most of the big spenders he talks about seem pretty normal, if a bit depressed and isolated. A small minority, he said, clearly suffer from mental health issues. He is sympathetic: “The world is a lonely place. And I guess those people are the loneliest.

In fact, André sees a connection between his predicament and that of the clients. Many people who do jobs like his, he says, are poor. They have “nowhere to go” and “nothing left to do”. They are desperate: “At the end of the day, if you have to eat, you have to do what you have to do.” The people he talks to, he said, display similar desperation, although for different reasons. “If you’re alone, you don’t want to be stuck in loneliness, so you gotta do what you gotta do too.” Several gossips in Asia I spoke to said they made enough money compared to other outsourced jobs. But their income pales in comparison to the profits their work generates for agencies, which have discovered a gold mine at the crossroads of globalization and Western alienation.

Whether this is legal or not is a separate question. In November last year, two former employees of a company called Unruly Agency filed a lawsuit, alleging wage theft and wrongful dismissal. The agency runs the OnlyFans accounts of a number of Gen Z stars, including rapper Lil Pump and social media creators like Tana Mongeau. In the lawsuit, first reported by Insider, plaintiffs said managers were instructed to “lie, trick and deceive fans” by writing phantom messages on behalf of popular models, in an effort to trick them into paying for locked content or tipping. Their bosses, they claim, devised a system in which account managers would keep track of the questions fans asked the models most often. Managers would then ask the models to record a video answering each question, encouraging them to change outfits between videos to make the clips look like they were recorded on different days. The managers sent the videos to thousands of fans, each of whom expected to receive a personalized answer to a question they had specifically asked. (Unruly denied those claims.)

In the United States, fraud is generally defined as an instance in which one entity or individual knowingly deceives another in order to obtain something of value. In other words, lies by themselves are not actionable. You could certainly argue that a subscriber talking to a chatterbox is being tricked into spending money they wouldn’t otherwise spend, based on false information. But you might as well claim the opposite: the photos and videos subscribers receive are genuine depictions of naked women, even if the perceived intimacy around the sale is fake. After all, these are online sex discussions – in a post-“Catfish” world, should we really expect internet accounts to accurately represent who runs them?

Hundreds of local businesspeople attended the UCSB Economic Forecast Project’s 2022 South County Economic Summit on Wednesday, May 4 at the Granada Theater. The annual event, held in person for the first time since 2019, featured five speakers providing context to today’s real estate, labor and financial markets. The UCSB Department of Economics established the project in 1981 to provide the community with information on economic, demographic, and regional business trends in the tri-county areas.

Local realtor and former president of the Santa Barbara Association of Realtors, David Kim, presented his assessment of the area’s residential real estate market, including the impact of the pandemic on Santa Barbara housing.

A graduate of UCSB in 2003 with degrees in business economics and law and society, Kim described a real seller’s market. Out-of-town buyers, coupled with historically low inventory levels, have led to dramatic surges in local home prices and fierce bidding wars.

“Out-of-town buyers were used to bidding very aggressively in areas where they lived, so they started using those strategies here in our market,” Kim said. “There are people who have been doing real estate here for over 40 years who say they’ve never seen a market like this.”

Nonetheless, Kim offered encouragement to buyers, noting that he has seen those who persevere eventually succeed in buying a home.

Gene Deering of Radius Commercial Real Estate provided an overview of the commercial and real estate industry and the hospitality sector on the South Coast. His presentation included drone video of the downtown hallway, along with commentary.

“At this time, the City of Santa Barbara has an incredible opportunity to redesign State Street, De La Guerra Plaza and the State Street Underpass,” Deering commented. “We have a window of time to make the change and use positive momentum to help State Street.”

As an example, Deering highlighted the second and third floors of the former Macy’s and Nordstrom buildings. “They total 180,000 square feet of retail space that is being converted into technology office space,” Deering explained. “If our community can attract larger tenants to activate these spaces, it could bring a thousand workers downtown daily.”

Deering described the local hotel market as hot. “In previous years, we could see a hotel trade every few years. We are currently seeing more activity in the hospitality industry than anyone can remember. Demand continues to grow for hotel development.

Other speakers at the event were UCSB economics professor Peter Rupert, who provided an update on the region’s economy and the topic of rent control; Jagdeep Singh Bachher, Chief Investment Officer in the President’s Office at the University of California, who spoke about investing in turbulent times; and Josh Williams, head of BW Research, who spoke about Santa Barbara County employment and workforce trends.
