A gentler, more insidious face of the system, however, belongs to the courteous, smiling, well-dressed man who, carrying a bouquet of flowers, showed up early last month out of the blue at the ninth-floor Moscow apartment of Nataliya Gryaznevich. The man, who introduced himself only as “Andrei,” told Ms. Gryaznevich, a 29-year-old employee of a pro-democracy group called Open Russia, that he would like to invite her out for coffee and a friendly chat. “It seems that you really like … [Read more...] about The Kremlin Wants Information.

SELLING your house through an online agent could save you around £2,500 in fees, and flog your property quicker than if you used your average high street agent. According to property market watchdog HomeOwners Alliance, choosing an online agent is just as successful than if you were selling it the traditional way. They found that online agents sell your home much quicker and for a tiny bit more of the asking price. On average, online agents achieve 95.85 per cent of the asking price, compared with 95.69 per cent sold by agents on the high street. But if you're annoyed by the large fees charged by high street agents then an online one might be worth considering. High street estate agents typically take 1.3 per cent commission, which is over three times the fee charged by agents online. If you were selling a house for the average asking price of £244,540, an online agent fee could save you £2,192 on high street agent’s commission. And when it comes to how long it … [Read more...] about Online estate agents can save THOUSANDS of pounds for home sellers
The races for Pulaski County sheriff, circuit/county clerk and multiple justices of the peace districts firmed up last week as the deadline passed for filing for partisan county offices. Thursday was the deadline for candidates to formally file to run for Pulaski County county judge, sheriff, circuit/county clerk, treasurer/tax collector, assessor and all 15 justices of the peace positions. Decisions by those elected officials affect the roughly 393,000 people who live in Pulaski County's 845 square miles. This year's election cycle is the first in which county officials, excluding justices of the peace, will be elected to four-year terms instead of two-year terms. Arkansas voters approved the term extensions in November 2016. Justices of the peace, who make up the county's legislative body -- the Quorum Court, are still elected for two-year terms. The Pulaski County sheriff, a position that oversees the county's law enforcement arm and the most populated county jail in Arkansas, drew … [Read more...] about Filing period ends for Pulaski County races
