Music, good eats, and the ocean would make up my perfect day in Amagansett. I would start with coffee at Jack’s Stir Brew Coffee. This delicious brew is 100 percent organic and stir brewed to provide full extraction of the coffee flavor. The blend is created with organic, fair trade beans — just what you need to get that morning pep-in-your-step. Jack’s is located in Amagansett Square (with additional locations in Sag Harbor and all over NYC) and also offers vegan baked goods. Yum!After coffee, I would take a walk through the Amagansett Square, stopping at stores like Pilgrim Surf Supply and Love Adorned (see Zachary Weiss’s accompanying page of shopping items). I would also stop by Innersleeve Records on Main Street to search new and vintage vinyl.I’d keep walking down to Atlantic Avenue Beach. During July and August, I usually find a quieter beach, but the rest of the year, I love a good walk at Atlantic. It’s the beach I grew up going to as a kid and always holds nice memories. My first summer job was even at the Beach Hut snack stand (where I quickly realized I’d rather be on the beach.)Now, as an adult, full-day beach days can be few and far between, but I always remember the carefree days of being 14 and spending morning to night every day just being a beach bum. The life!For lunch, I would stop by Hampton Chutney Co., which offers dosas — Indian style pancakes, similar to crepes. It’s even said to be frequented by the one and only Sir Paul McCartney.The Squeezery, which opened last year on Main Street, offers smoothies and juices that provide not only needed nutrients, but amazing taste. The eatery and juice bar aims to provide an experience that “encourages health, connection, and happiness,” and that they do. Be sure to try the turmeric latte with the house-made almond milk. It also has an excellent cocktail menu.Later on, dinner would be at Wölffer Kitchen, also located in the Amagansett Square. It’s all Wölffer all the time on the East End, and I have no problem with that at all. I’ll have the chef’s daily pizzetta with a side of rosé please.After dinner, it’s off to the Stephen Talkhouse for some drinks and live music. The venue features local musicians as well as larger acts. Not into massive crowds? (On the weekends in summer the line to get in takes up all of Main Street.) Stop by on a Sunday for reggae night or Tuesday for industry night. Or for an early show. The Wailers performed this Sunday (see Indy Snaps). Acts like Loudon Wainwright, Yellowman, Toots & The Maytals, Donavon Frankenreiter, and Dick Dale are coming up this summer.Each week this summer I will continue the ‘My Perfect Day’ series, featuring a different East End village.@email@example.com Share

That is the message from Oh Kong-gyun, chairman and CEO of the Korean Register.Speaking at the fourth Seoul International Shipbuilding and Maritime Conference (SIMS) in Korea, Oh explained that while the world fleet continues to grow, the number of new orders decreased between 2006 and 2009.He said: “It can be assumed that over the coming 10 years, the yearly average new building order book will be less than that of the past 10 years. The demand for containers, tankers and LNG carriers will decrease, while the construction of offshore platforms will show strength in the market place owing to a high demand for energy, increased investment in the exploitation of oil and gas and higher oil prices. The increased demand for deep-sea crude oil and natural gas will also lead to heightened newbuilding activities for deep-sea oil platforms.”The annual SIMS conference is held in Seoul, Korea and this year was attended by around 200 international delegates and speakers.Conference topics included future prospects for the international shipping and shipbuilding markets, green-ship technology and the global piracy problem.
Peers have warned that plans to extend the jurisdiction of the Competition Appeal Tribunal risk creating a ‘US-style lawyers’ charter’.The Consumer Rights Bill, currently nearing its final stages in the House of Lords, will give the CAT power to hear collective claims and approve collective settlements.The Department for Business, Innovation & Skills says the changes will give civil courts greater flexibility and strengthen consumer protection.During the report stage in the House of Lords, the government saw off amendments that would have placed more restrictions on the powers of the CAT.Conservative peer Lord Hodgson of Astley Abbotts (pictured) called for amendments to ensure consumers receive compensation due to them, rather than to third-party funders and lawyers.He warned of ‘500-pound legal gorillas’ that the CAT would have to deal with if its jurisdiction was extended, and accused the government of ‘casually preparing to open’ a Pandora’s box to potential claims.He added: ‘The CAT would find itself in the front line of legal wrangling of a type and range which, by reason of its past experience, it was ill-fitted to handle.’Conservative peer Viscount Eccles said similar moves in Australia had created ‘considerable trouble’ around the authorisation of those conducting class actions or collective proceedings. He added: ‘No one would dream of accepting any form of settlement in this field without taking good legal advice. That would apply to defendants as well.‘Nevertheless, the endeavour should be that the benefit does not go to what you might call the legal outriders: claims managers, hedge funds and so on.’BIS minister Baroness Neville-Rolfe said rules written into the bill will require the CAT to consider the strength of claims and the availability of alternative dispute resolution.
A former law firm director whose firm withheld £192,000 in counsel fees – as well as £94,000 in others unpaid charges – has been struck off the roll of solicitors. Paul Dumbleton, a director with now-defunct Cardiff firm Beech Jones, oversaw cash transfers from client to office account for the settlement of unpaid professional disbursements, but they were not then paid to the intended recipient.The Solicitors Disciplinary Tribunal heard that the firm’s legal cashier had reported the matter to the Solicitors Regulation Authority. Cheques were written but not sent out and the client ledger would wrongly indicate that the disbursement had been paid.The practice became common, it was heard, when the firm started to experience cashflow problems in June 2014 and at one point its overdraft facility was being reduced by £10,000 a month.Beech Jones had started trading in September 2011 but Dumbleton unexpectedly left in October 2014 and the firm entered liquidation and closed a month later.Dumbleton, 60 this year, denied to the tribunal that he had instructed anyone to withhold payment of disbursements and he was not aware of any shortage on the client account. He explained that fee earners did not need to seek his approval before paying disbursements, and the cashier was also authorised to pay professional fees without recourse to him.The tribunal said there had been no cross purposes in discussions between Dumbleton and his cashier and that it was not credible he was confused about the status of monies.Dumbleton, it was found, had directed that funds be transferred to the office account and cheques retained rather than sent. The tribunal found the solicitor of 30 years knew his actions were dishonest: Dumbleton was an experienced practitioner who was aware of the rules and that he was breaching them.Its judgment added: [His] actions were planned and were in breach of his position of trust as the custodian of client monies. ‘He had direct control and entirely responsible for the circumstances. He was an experienced and senior solicitor, who understood the rules and the sacrosanct nature of client monies.’The tribunal heard that Dumbleton had already spent £84,000 defending himself against the allegations. He was further order to pay SRA costs of £31,000.

The campaign to save the Viking Hoard for Galloway has had a significant boost with backing from The Duke of Buccleuch, Dame Barbara Kelly, Sir Alex Fergusson, Sir Malcolm Ross, Sir John Thomson, Richard Arkless and Professor Ted Cowan.All signed a letter that has appeared in today’s Scotsman that highlights the tremendous public support for the hoard to be in the region where it was found.There’s still time to sign our petition by clicking HERESee the full letter text below:Dear Sir,We are writing to you in support of the campaign for the Galloway Viking Hoard to have a home in Kirkcudbright. A decision on its future is due very shortly.National Museums Scotland is bidding for sole ownership of the hoard and says this will save it for the nation. However, we wish to make an alternative proposal, one that would give it pride of place on a regular basis in a secure and specially designed exhibition area within the new Kirkcudbright Art Gallery. Not only would the Galloway Viking Hoard be saved for the nation, but it would also be displayed in its proper regional context.Public support for the hoard to have a home in Galloway has been remarkable. The range of objects it contains and the context of its discovery shed new light on the origins of Galloway at a fascinating time in history, demonstrating links around the Irish Sea zone and beyond to Europe and the Mediterranean.This is an opportunity for a region to share its unique story with the world and for an area of Scotland, still relatively undiscovered, to assert its historical identity, create new economic and educational opportunities and bolster its tourism potential.NMS’s national and international reputation would be greatly enhanced if now, during Scotland’s Year of History, Heritage and Archaeology, it recognised the importance of compromise and embraced an equal partnership to bring about the shared care and display of the Galloway Viking Hoard. This truly would be working for and with the nation.Yours faithfully,The Duke of Buccleuch & Queensberry KBEDame Barbara Kelly DBE FRIASSir Alex FergussonSir Malcolm Ross GCVOSir John Thomson GCMGRichard Arkless MPProfessor E J Cowan FRSESome 3,250 people have already signed our petition to have the hoard homed in Kirkcudbright, there have also been hundreds of messages of support from all across Scotland, the UK and worldwide. There has also been intense media interest.The hoard was discovered at an undisclosed location in Galloway by a metal detectorist in 2014.It includes more than 100 gold and silver objects, some already old when they were hidden. Among them are a unique gold bird-shaped pin, an enamelled Christian cross, decorated Anglo-Saxon brooches, armbands and an engraved Carolingian silver vessel. The items come from across Europe – there are even fragments of Byzantine silk.If the hoard is given a home in Kirkcudbright GVH is keen to see agreements reached for it to be displayed at other times in the NMS in Edinburgh and beyond.
