Bruce earned a reputation across the commonwealth as a tough prosecutor, effective administrator and thoughtful legal mind, which is why I appointed him Inspector General. I have great faith in his ability and know that he will serve efficiently and effectively as Attorney General. I also want to thank Bruce Castor for his service to the office, and I wish him well moving forward.”If confirmed as Attorney General, Beemer will resume his role as Inspector General upon completion of his service as Attorney General.——–Bruce Beemer currently serves as Pennsylvania’s Inspector General, and prior to that he served as first deputy in the Office of the Attorney General of Pennsylvania where he oversaw the day to day operations of the Criminal, Civil, and Public Protection Divisions, as well as being responsible for the management of almost 800 employees.He previously served as a deputy district attorney in the Allegheny County District Attorney’s Office.

Working out the price of a home

first_imgAndrew Winter shares his tips for buying a home when the price isn’t disclosed. Picture: Jerad WilliamsYou want to buy a home, and the price is … NOT disclosed.This is a popular sales tactic and rules and regulations on it vary from state to state. So how do you work out a price?• If you’re looking in areas you know, you should have a feel for typical values. Ensure your knowledge is up to date as values can change in just a few weeks. Major property websites will show you sold prices, and you can ask agents. • For unknown suburbs, be wary if you see a non-priced listing you like. Ideally, if you are serious, you could risk the few hundred dollars to pay a valuer for a really independent overview, but your lender/broker should be able to help too. More from newsMould, age, not enough to stop 17 bidders fighting for this home2 hours agoBuyers ‘crazy’ not to take govt freebies, says 28-yr-old investor8 hours ago• When searching, find listings similar — both for sale and sold — and try to discover sale prices or listing guides.• The process is mainly about comparisons as there are never two truly identical homes. Teach yourself to add for some features and take away value for less or poor condition. • Work out demand. More serious buyers mean competition, which may push the price higher than you think is fair. Is it worth that bit extra to you? • What is it worth to you? How much will you push your finances? If it is a compromise or investment home, is it worth the risk? • Selling motivation. Rarely noted, yet it determines every sale price. Forced sale situations can be great buying. This is a tricky game I feel only really favours sellers. As a buyer, be educated and well researched.last_img read more

Can you really be addicted to pornography?

first_imgNZ Herald 7 March 2016Family First Comment: Yes, of course. Everyone knows that – especially the porn industry!!“In my practice as a clinical psychologist specialising in addiction, I see people for a range of substance problems. The most common non-substance behaviour that people seek my assistance with is pornography addiction, with many clients frequently using this term when first making contact.”The recent public statements by athlete Nick Willis about overcoming an addiction to pornography have received a lot of attention.One question that is being asked is what actually is pornography addiction? In particular, many people may wonder if this really is an addiction, how common is it and how does it relate to “normal” pornography use.Firstly, the official manual of the American Psychiatric Association – which is also used in New Zealand – does not recognise pornography addiction. Gambling is the only behavioural addiction to receive official sanction for that organisation.In my practice as a clinical psychologist specialising in addiction, I see people for a range of substance problems. The most common non-substance behaviour that people seek my assistance with is pornography addiction, with many clients frequently using this term when first making contact.When I assess a person, it is important to keep an open mind about what is occurring for them. However I have consistently found that these men (and they have all been men) describe problems with compulsive pornography use that closely mirrors most of the symptoms of substance addiction.READ MORE: read more

Pirates Fall Short Against Wildcats

first_imgThe Franklin County Wildcats came to visit the Greensburg Pirates on Thursday evening for their second conference match up of the season. The Wildcats bested the Pirates back on August 21 when the Pirates were the visitors, though it took overtime for FC to be victorious. FC beat Greensburg 6-4 after two extra 7 minute periods. Thursday, the game intensity was the same, with a slightly different result, this time, in favor of the Pirates. Greensburg started the scoring early with Vincent Pavy getting through the Wildcat back line and putting a goal in 1 minute and 22 seconds into the game. It’s Pavy’s team-leading 6th goal of the season. Greensburg found the net later in the first half with senior Nicholas Zapfe finding freshman Grayson Newhart for the Pirates’ second goal. The Wildcats were able to draw to within one before halftime with a goal of their own, moments after Newhart’s goal. The second half was very defensive for the Pirates, and it wasn’t until a late handball in the box allowed for the Wildcats to get right back in it. FC was able to sink the PK and tie the game at 2-2 with less than 20 minutes left. The Pirates relied on the heroics of Zapfe again, as he scored the game winning goal with around 10 minutes left to play. The Pirates finished the game strong and held on to win the game 3-2. Greensburg moves to 2-5 on the season, and 1-2 in EIAC play.Courtesy of Pirates Coach Cody DeVolld.last_img read more
