As FBI officials investigate the death of an American vacationing in Mexico, Mexican authorities revealed Tuesday night that 25-year-old Shanquella Robinson may be alive and receiving professional medical attention. health for several hours before authorities arrived and she was pronounced dead, ABC News has learned.

The video featured is from a previous report.

The medical professional at the scene reportedly told Robinson’s friends that Robinson was drunk, dehydrated and that they should take him to the hospital. However, they refused to do so, according to authorities.

The new report differs significantly from the original autopsy report obtained by ABC News, which said medical professionals arrived at Robinson’s villa at 3 p.m. and she was pronounced dead within 15 minutes. The autopsy revealed that Robinson had died from a serious spinal cord injury and a dislocated neck.

Authorities did not respond to ABC News’ request for comment on the difference between their report and the autopsy.

According to the new police report, Robinson’s friends requested medical attention at 2:13 p.m. After a GP from American Medical Center arrived at the Puerto Los Cabos address, Robinson’s friends told the health professional that she had been drinking a lot of alcohol. .

Medical staff said they noticed Robinson had a poor verbal response, was intoxicated and dehydrated, but had stable vital signs, according to the police report. The medical professional at the scene advised Robinson’s friends to transfer her to hospital, but her friends insisted that she stay at the villa, according to the report.

At 4:20 p.m., Robinson began to convulse, which is when one of Robinson’s friends, Wenter Essence Donovan, dialed 911. When emergency medical professionals arrived, the Police report indicates that Robinson began having difficulty breathing and having a decreased pulse.

At 4.49pm, the GP said they had stopped feeling Robinson’s pulse and started CPR until paramedics arrived. They continued with 14 CPR sessions and five doses of adrenaline without success. Robinson went into a state of asystole (a type of cardiac arrest), according to the police report. Robinson was pronounced dead at 5:57 p.m., the report said.

According to the new police report, Mexican authorities were notified by Donovan around 5 p.m. local time of Robinson’s condition.

Donovan and all of Robinson’s friends who were with her in Cabo did not respond to ABC News’ repeated requests for comment.

The FBI opened an investigation into Robinson’s death earlier this month, which is being investigated by Mexican authorities as femicide, a form of gender-based violence.

Robinson, from Charlotte, North Carolina, traveled to the resort town of San Jose del Cabo on the southern tip of Mexico’s Baja California peninsula with six friends on October 28.

They stayed in a rental villa in Fundadores, an exclusive gated community with vacation homes and a private beach club, according to Robinson’s family.

The next day, Robinson’s parents said they received a frantic phone call from their daughter’s friends saying she had died.

With all the new and developing information, Robinson’s family is still looking for answers from friends who know what happened that weekend in Cabo. Sallamondra Robinson, Shanquella Robinson’s mother, said she was glad the FBI stepped in to help solve her daughter’s case so it “wouldn’t be in vain”.

“I would like to see each of them sent back to Mexico because their plan was to come back here thinking they weren’t going to be prosecuted,” Robinson told ABC News. “He was a caring person…and I want them to always remember that. We’re going to keep his legacy alive.”

Best residential neighborhoods by budget https://villasinflorence.com/best-residential-neighborhoods-by-budget/ Mon, 21 Nov 2022 02:46:02 +0000 https://villasinflorence.com/best-residential-neighborhoods-by-budget/

Every year, thousands of people pack their bags and move to Dubai. The city flourished and became a sprawling sprawl where communities emerged in pockets away from the more established hotspots.

But not all residential areas are created equal, and what suits one person may be another’s worst nightmare. So which place is right for you?

Here, The National Take a closer look at some of these communities to choose gems based on individual needs.

Best for: budget

Maybe you want to maximize your savings potential, or maybe you have a modest income overall. Either way, parts of Dubai will provide decent housing for minimal rent.

For solitary residents, a studio is an affordable choice with Elite Sports Residence in Dubai Sports City offering units for less than Dh30,000 ($8,170) per year.

A little further inland is Damac Hills, which offers fully furnished 400 square foot studios for between Dhs 30,000 and 40,000 per year, with some owners accepting 12 checks.

Families looking for space without breaking the bank might be better off with sister site Damac Hills 2, formerly named Akoya, where a four-bedroom villa will set you back Dh50,000-60,000 per year.

Couples hoping to spend as little as possible on rent could try looking in the Al Qusais area, where two-bedroom apartments are advertised for around Dh30,000.

But beware, the area is close to Dubai International Airport, which operates 24 hours a day, and it may be difficult for some to get used to.

“If you’re looking for a place to stay that’s not far from town, but still gives your wallet a break, consider looking at Jumeirah Village Circle Apartments [JVC]”said Leigh Wilmot, regional manager of Treo Homes.

“While traffic may not be your best friend for getting in and out, once you’re in the community there are plenty of little shops and restaurants that will meet any needs you may have on your doorstep. “

Two-bedroom apartments at JVC start at Dh50,000 per year for 1,300 square feet.

Best for: space

Some locations offer green spaces and fewer high-rises to avoid that cramped city feeling.

At the more expensive end is Arabian Ranches, which offers 2,700-square-foot villas with around three-bedroom pitches starting at Dh180,000 per year.

According to an industry expert, it is important to pursue quality.

“It should be noted that in Dubai, the biggest developers like Emaar – such as Springs and Arabian Ranches – have a long track record of delivering truly high quality projects and integrated communities that deliver this aspirational lifestyle in Dubai. “, said Simon Baker, Managing Director at haus & haus.

Further along Al Qudra Road are Mira, Mira Oasis and Town Square where the villas are slightly smaller, but the green spaces and parks are just as good for stretching your legs.

Rents in these areas start at around Dh130,000 and apartments in Town Square start at Dh54,000 for a two-bedroom unit.

If you prefer to be a little closer to the action, the Springs and Meadows neighborhoods can offer a more suburban vibe a short drive from the marina.

The Springs is more suited to a budget, with prices starting at Dh100,000, and Meadows can make you cry with three-bedroom villas from Dh270,000 per year.

If you want to be right next to a new mall, Dubai Hills has apartments and villas to suit most budgets.

“Dubai Hills has become hugely popular recently for its central location, lush green spaces, privacy and quality master plan – that’s good rental advice for 2023,” Mr Baker said.

Best for: Beach

Whether you want to exercise, socialize, or enjoy some peace and quiet, a popular pastime in Dubai is going to the beach, and people can choose to cut commuting time by living as close to the water as possible.

A two-bedroom apartment on a high floor of the Jumeirah Beach Residence will put you close to the beach, as well as several restaurants and cafes. Rents cost about 120,000 Dh per year.

A two-bedroom apartment in The Torch tower near the marina is slightly cheaper with apartments costing around Dh95,000 per year.

Those on a bigger budget might opt ​​for the famous Palm Jumeirah, where more than 60 kilometers of beach have been added to Dubai’s coastline. The sky’s the limit when it comes to prices on the Palm, but apartments start at around Dh145,000 per year for 1,500 square feet.

“For those without any form of budgetary constraints, there are always options like the Le Cote and Le Rive buildings in the Port de La Mer project by Meraas,” Mr Wilmot said.

“A one-bed apartment can start at 150,000 Dh and go up to 480,000 Dh for a three-bedroom apartment.

“Although the prices are higher, there is something very special about living on an exclusive man-made island with 270 degree water views and Dubai’s very iconic skyline in the background.”

While a villa on one of the fronds may be reserved for the very wealthy, there are apartments along the Palm Jumeirah trunk that are reasonably priced.  PA

Best for: commuting

Traffic is notorious in Dubai, and no one expects a traffic jam when trying to get home after a day’s work.

The trick to avoiding heavy rush hour traffic in the emirate, no matter where you work, is to avoid the popular roads that everyone takes.

Hessa Street, Sheikh Zayed Road, Al Khail and Umm Suqeim are known for heavy traffic, and occasional accidents can cause delays.

Al Qudra is also used all winter for sports competitions due to its connection to the cycle path.

It can sometimes be reduced to a single lane or closed completely for a few hours on weekends to accommodate sports enthusiasts.

“If you are looking to miss the traffic and also have a place that offers you a cozy townhouse, then take a look at Emaar’s Dubai South project,” Mr Wilmot said.

“Although it’s a little further from town, you can definitely find a really nice home away from the action. It’s a great option for those who work from home or only have to venture out occasionally. .”

Best for: restlessness and restlessness

Dubai is known for its active social scene, whether it’s a 6 a.m. rooftop spinning session or a crazy late-night round of golf.

While it’s too early for the suburbs, downtown and the marina offer a 24-hour lifestyle where you’ll never be left idle.

Right next to the world’s largest shopping mall and tallest building are several residential buildings along Mohammed bin Rashid Boulevard.

The Old Town sits across from the Dubai Mall and the Palace Downtown Hotel and offers low-rise accommodation with a historic ambience.

One-bedroom apartments start at Dh85,000 per year and residents have access to community pools and small play areas for children.

Beyond that, there are a number of skyscrapers to choose from, with studios available at Dh90,000, with the potential for truly spectacular views.

At the other end of town is the popular Marina. Prices here start as low as Dh45,000 per year for a studio, but be sure to view the property as it is likely to be smaller.

Two-bedroom units start at around Dh75,000 and can offer great water views.

“A final option if you want to stay in the middle of all the action is the ever-popular Jumeirah Lakes Towers,” Mr Wilmot said.

“Depending on the tower and the view you have, a two-bedroom apartment can cost between 100,000 Dh and 250,000 Dh per year.

“There’s a lot going on at JLT. Whether you’re a night owl or someone running through the park at 5 a.m., you’ll find plenty of like-minded people in the area.”

Richard Dean “Rich” Stewart | News, Sports, Jobs https://villasinflorence.com/richard-dean-rich-stewart-news-sports-jobs/ Sat, 19 Nov 2022 06:47:41 +0000 https://villasinflorence.com/richard-dean-rich-stewart-news-sports-jobs/ EAST LIVERPOOL – Richard Dean “Rich” Stewart, 84, of East Liverpool, left his earthly home, surrounded by his loving family, to be with our Lord at 4:03 a.m. Friday, November 18, 2022 at St. Mary’s Alzheimer Care Center in Columbiana, Ohio, after a long battle. with Lewy body dementia and Alzheimer’s disease.

Rich was born in East Liverpool, Ohio on October 28, 1938, the son of the late Thomas and Elsie (Hines) Stewart. He lived as a child in Pleasant Heights, attended Pleasant Heights Primary School and graduated from East Liverpool High School class in 1956. Rich began working at an early age as a stock boy at the Herron store on Lisbon Street, followed by Loblaws/Sparkle Market on Dresden Avenue. He then worked at Crucible Steel in Midland, Pennsylvania until they closed. His last job was a security guard at Shell Lubricant in Newell, W.Va., retiring in 2017.

He and his wife spent many years on summer vacations in Daytona Beach Shores, Florida. He loved Florida beaches and it started when he was in his twenties working at Crucible Steel. Being married at that time to his ex-wife, they were taking two or three week summer vacations with their children on the beaches of Florida and he had wonderful memories of those days.

Rich was a great father, strict but always involved in both of his son’s sports and helped and encouraged as much as a father could in his daughters’ pursuits. Rich had a calm nature but that would change when the topic of sports came up. It was like opening a book of knowledge. He was a huge Ohio State Buckeyes and Pittsburgh Steelers fan. He remembered stats and names of players from the East Liverpool Potters football and basketball teams from years ago. When he and his sons got together it was like watching sports on steroids and they learned a lot from him.

He also followed the Detroit Lions and Detroit Tigers as they were his favorite teams as a youngster. He loved to attend stock car races in the 60s, which were held at Yeager Dr. Glenmoor and Clinton, Pennsylvania. Sadly, all of those precious memories were erased when he was diagnosed with Alzheimer’s disease.

Rich was a Christian by faith, accepting Jesus Christ as his Saviour, and attended First Nazarene Church in East Liverpool as a child where he and his brother Marvin would occasionally sing a duet during morning service.

Preceding Rich in death were twin sons, Kevan and Kirk; three sisters, Bertha Adkins, Martha Adkins and Vallie Fiorello; two brothers, Marvin and Tom Stewart; and his good friend Jim Stevens.

He is survived and will be deeply missed by his beloved soul mate and wife of 24 years, whom he married on May 1, 1998, Kayleen L. (Reed) Stewart; his children, Cindy Ferlaino of Oklahoma City, Okla., Rick Stewart of San Diego, Calif., Tina Martin and her husband Ed of Washington, Pennsylvania, Julie Reynolds and her husband Bill of Medina, Ohio, and Brian Stewart and his wife Point of Pickerington, Ohio; stepchildren Mia Kruggel of Chardon, Ohio and David Shaw and his wife Juren of Grove City, Ohio; 11 grandchildren, Jimmy, Alissa, Brad, Nick, Michaela, Danielle, Jordan, Jack, Triston, Jacob and Aubrianna; five stepchildren, Andrew, Joe, Elizabeth, Billy and Missy; four great-grandchildren Jaxson, Savana, Presley and Jaxston; a beautiful great-granddaughter, Vivi; and by his cousins, nephews and nieces. He also leaves to mourn his two feline friends, Lili and Tori, whom he lovingly spoiled.

Friends can visit Dawson Funeral Home on Tuesday where family will be present from 4-7 p.m. Pastor John Smith will lead a service at the funeral home Wednesday at 11 a.m. Burial at Riverview Cemetery.

The family would like to extend a special thank you to all of the nurses, caregivers and staff at St. Mary’s Alzheimer’s Care Center and Sanctuary Hospice for their loving care and compassion in helping facilitate Rich’s journey.

My mother bequeathed her house to my two brothers. They said I could live there rent-free, if I paid taxes and maintenance. Is it a good idea? https://villasinflorence.com/my-mother-bequeathed-her-house-to-my-two-brothers-they-said-i-could-live-there-rent-free-if-i-paid-taxes-and-maintenance-is-it-a-good-idea/ Fri, 18 Nov 2022 16:57:00 +0000 https://villasinflorence.com/my-mother-bequeathed-her-house-to-my-two-brothers-they-said-i-could-live-there-rent-free-if-i-paid-taxes-and-maintenance-is-it-a-good-idea/
Dear Quentin,

My father predeceased my mother and she inherited their second home. My mother left the house and the property to my younger brother and my older brother. Neither can take care of the house or the property, and they gave me permission to fix it and live there.

The deeds are still in my parents’ name, and my brother has a copy of the will showing his ownership. How should they hand over the house to me? I don’t want to pay back taxes and put in thousands of dollars, and then have no property rights. Thank you for your advice.

Daughter/Sister

Dear daughter/sister,

Your question contains worrying assumptions. You assume that your brothers will simply relinquish the property and/or convince your mother to bequeath the property to you before she dies. It is highly unlikely that they will do this after the fact. I have tons of Moneyist letters that would attest to this result.

If you can’t afford a house today and it’s cheaper to live in that house now and/or after your mother dies, do it. This would help you save for your retirement and perhaps allow you to build up a nest egg for a down payment on your own home. But don’t count on your brothers to give you the house.

Best course of action: your mother changes her will and/or signs a deed of transfer in the event of her death, which means the house becomes yours after she dies – that is, if your brothers were ready to agree to that too, and there is no indication in your letter that they would support such action.

An act of transmission by death works in the same way as a beneficiary of a bank account or an insurance contract. One of the most important aspects is that it avoids probate – the public accounting of your mother’s assets and liabilities – because the house passes to you when she dies.

This would have the added benefit of providing you with a “base raise” on capital gains taxes. That is, the profit on any future sale of the house would be calculated as the sale price minus the recent/market appraisal price of the house – not your parents’ original purchase price. .

Of course, consult a trust and estates lawyer before finalizing any decision and talk openly about this dilemma with your mother and brothers. But don’t spend money on taxes and renovations thinking your siblings and/or mom will give you the house. It would be a very big mistake.

In the meantime, I have a question for you: why does your mother only leave this house to your brothers? Will she leave you with other assets instead? This is a question you could definitely ask your mother. Of course, she can do what she wants with her estate, but it would seem fairer if she included all three children in her will.
