The spectator behind one of the biggest pile-ups in Tour de France history appeared in court charged with injuring dozens of riders but seemed set to avoid jail after prosecutors demanded a suspended sentence.
Brownie Bytes doesn’t agree with this outcome. Turning the perpetrator into the victim is ridiculous. She caused real harm by her foolish actions to get attention. A slap on the wrist and suspended sentence is morally wrong and sends a message to her and foolish fans that anything goes at races.
A new tracking admission from Google, one that hasn’t yet made headlines, should be a serious warning to Chrome’s 2.6 billion users. If you’re one of them, this nasty new surprise should be a genuine reason to quit.
Officials in the Brittany region of France have reportedly arrested a fan wanted in connection with a massive crash at the Tour de France.
The fan held up a large cardboard sign while stepping out into the path of oncoming cyclists on Saturday, the first day of the multi-day race. Video of the race shows the woman was looking toward cameras and away from the pack of riders.
BrownieBytes Take: Typical idiot spectator trying to get a selfie with a sign causes a disaster crash on the first day. Arrest her! The stupid sign had something to do with her grandparents. Dox the idiot. Her actions wrecked a professional cyclist that has trained for years for this race and she stole that time and effort. As a former racer, nothing makes me more angry than a selfish spectator.
Jasha Sütterlin was forced to withdraw from the race due to an injury sustained in the crash, according to @LeTour.
Most riders were able to continue on after the sign incident, but Jasha Sutterlin had to leave the race because of the crash,according to NBC Sports.
The Tour de France tweeted later that while it is happy to have spectators on hand to take in the race, it wanted fans to “respect the safety of the riders” and not to “risk everything for a photo or to get on television.”
You’ve probably spotted the signs around your neighborhood: “We buy houses,” “Cash for homes,” or “Sell us your home as/is!” You may have even groaned at how pervasive they’ve become.
If so, you’re not alone. These signs, which come from real estate investment groups that scoop up houses across the country — often paying 10% or more below the market value — are becoming more and more common in today’s hot real estate market.
The goal? Flip each house into a more expensive property, or turn it into a rental unit.
Real estate investors are offering cash for homes in just about any neighborhood in any part of the U.S. these days, no matter the condition of the property, says Nick Bailey, chief customer officer at RE/MAX. In January 2021, median existing home prices jumped to $303,900 — 14.1% higher than last year, according to the National Association of Realtors (NAR). For investors, who strive to purchase homes below the market value and sell for the highest price possible, “are getting more attention … because it’s easier to buy and flip when prices are going up,” Bailey says.
With home prices rising, homeowners might be tempted to sell their homes quickly, especially if they’ve lost their jobs or are under financial strain from COVID-19. And since most homeowners don’t realize how much their homes are worth, or that a few repairs could up its value for a relatively low cost, an information gap is adding fuel to the fire, according to Eric Sussman, an adjunct real estate professor at the University of California Los Angeles (UCLA).
Is selling your home to an investment group always a bad idea? Not necessarily, real estate experts say. But you need to proceed with caution.
Why does this kind of stuff seem to always happen in Floriduh?
A traffic accident in Florida has led to one of the most confusing scenarios of 2020. On Tuesday a driver in Citrus County put their car in reverse at a high rate of speed, jumping the curb and landing on two parked cars.
