Details emerged from David Geffen’s big Beverly Hills purchase



Details emerged from David Geffen's big Beverly Hills purchase

David Geffen revived the LA real estate market once again last week when he entered the escrow at the Beverly Hills estate owned by Olympic Committee president A. Casey Wasserman. Now details are starting to emerge, and real estate sources say media mogul is paying around $ 68 million for ultra-modern homes.

That is a surprising amount but still a fraction of the $ 82.5 million requested by Wasserman (and significantly less than the original price tag of $ 125 million).

Geffen has a lot of cash; earlier this year, he sold his home in Beverly Hills to Amazon billionaire Jeff Bezos at a record-breaking $ 165 million, by far the most paid for a home in California.

This new colossal deal is the latest in the luxury market which has apparently not ticked during the pandemic. At $ 68 million, it will be the second highest sales in Southern California this year, beating the $ 36.5 million purchase of Kylie Jenner in Holmby Hills and the sale of $ 43.3 million sales of Georgia’s Frontiere plantation in Bel-Air.

The new Pad of Geffen is located on 3.25 hectares above Sunset Boulevard surrounded by lush lawns and landscaping. The highlight is a three-storey house of more than 18,500 square feet, but the property also houses an 85-foot high infinity tile pool, an entertaining deck, a billiard house with glass walls and several outdoor dining areas.

Richard Meier – Pritzker’s winning architect behind the Getty Center – designed a sleek house. Wrapped in wood, it’s open to an interesting combination of stone, glass, steel and white oak.

The large gallery-like living space boasts automatic steel doors across the main floor, opening into a private backyard. There are large, spacious rooms, open dining rooms, and kitchens in the center of the island.

Two stairs and an elevator navigate the floor plan, which goes up to the main room which is covered in wood with a spacious deck and lounge. Gym and cinema is below.

Stephen Shapiro from Westside Estate Agency is listing. When contacted by telephone last week, he declined to comment on the agreement. Kurt Rappaport, also with the Westside Estate Agency, represented Geffen.

Geffen, 77, is best known for founding music labels Asylum Records, Geffen Records and DGC Records, now Interscope Geffen A&M Records. In 1990, he co-founded DreamWorks Pictures with Steven Spielberg and Jeffrey Katzenberg.

Wasserman founded his eponymous marketing and talent management company in 1998. His entertainment efforts included ownership of the Los Angeles Avengers, part of the Arena Football League, which was folded in 2009.

After pioneering the L.A. offer for the 2028 Olympics, Wasserman now serves as president of the Los Angeles Olympic Committee.

Ribau Esteves in Montenegro. “No Portuguese can stand an hour’s speech”



Ribau Esteves in Montenegro.  "No Portuguese can stand an hour's speech"

Ribau Estevez, the mayor of Aveiro, urges Luis Montenegro to “work” on his affability and praises the fact that the new SDP leader is already aware of the need for this.

Despite being one of the main critics of Luis Montenegro’s candidacy, due to his history of bitter opposition to other leaders, the mayor of Aveiro believes that this is a “new phase” where “unity” is the word of order.

At the door of Pavilhão Rosa Mota in Porto Ribau, Estevez is talking to Renaissance what kind of SDP is this, with Montenegro at the head.

He was one of the main critics of Luis Montenegro’s candidacy due to his past opposition to other presidents. How do you look at the victory of Montenegro, and also how you have integrated many of your former opponents into the direction?

Obviously, we were all in opposition to each other. If there is one person who has vehemently and often incorrectly spoken out against the leader of the party in recent years, it is Luis Montenegro. I really liked yesterday’s speech, but the part in which he himself confesses his attitude is distinguished by humility and great grace.

So, as soon as he arranged this stage of his life, which was very long, because I obviously supported another candidate, I thought that there was another way.

It is obvious that this congress marks another time, a time when it is really necessary to take care of this party. It is necessary to make it a strong structure capable of leading the opposition in Portugal and creating an alternative.

We are here to build. There is a time to fight and celebrate differences, and there is a time for a new phase that we are starting.

This is a Congress where we are trying to give deep meaning and seriousness to the word “unity”.

This lead in opposition to Luis Monteiro will certainly be a challenge, and it looks like Chega is already on his way. Should the SDP vote for a vote of no confidence?

I think that the government, which has three months, does not make any sense to submit a vote of no confidence in parliament. This is Chegi folklore. An episode of demagogy around a person is enough.

Introduce a vote of no confidence in the government, which has three months, although it has already made some mistakes and did it. As ridiculous and serious as a democratic act this episode between the Prime Minister and the Minister of Infrastructure and Housing was, it does not make political sense.

The leader of the party will do as he pleases, if I were the leader, I would refrain from an act of disrespect. The Social Democratic Party must be a reliable, serious and profound opposition.

How it’s done? Rui Rio often offered civilized resistance and was ineffective.

I do not think that it is important for a party leader to be in parliament, on the contrary. Luis Montenegro was very pleased with the news he told us yesterday.

The leader of the party must be on the ground, he must be with the people, he must know the companies. You must have an attitude of presence. Also, unfortunately in Portugal, the MP is a by-product of politics, because we devalue Parliament.

In relation to Rui Rio, he had a problem of affability with people and a problem of easily perceived communication. But these are his characteristics, from this he is not good and not bad.

Affability is a characteristic that you either have or you don’t, and Rui Rio doesn’t have it. Communication is also easy, and Rui Rio does not have it.

Is there Montenegro?

I think that Montenegro has a very high potential in terms of ease of communication and the ability to say in a few words what people understand.

You need to talk less. Yesterday we must forgive him, it was his first speech as party chairman and he spoke for an hour. But it is obvious that if the chairman of the party wants to be heard, he cannot speak for an hour.

Yesterday he was supposed to speak, and he spoke, and we listened. But no Portuguese can stand an hour’s speech.

I think that Luis Montenegro has something to work on in friendliness, in human relations of intimacy. And I found it very interesting, just for those who are in the know, the idea that they will be one week a month in each area. It is very important.

I liked hearing the leader acknowledge that he needs to work on this dimension and that it is politically important for him and for the SDP.

Portuguese missionary denounces ‘daily persecution and massacre’ in Congo



Portuguese missionary denounces 'daily persecution and massacre' in Congo

“There are persecutions and massacres every day” in the Democratic Republic of the Congo (DRC), and the international community turns a blind eye to this, says Father Marcelo de Oliveira, a Portuguese missionary in the African country.

The chief administrator of Komboni Province Missionaries in the Democratic Republic of the Congo speaks in an interview Renaissancethat attacks are permanent in an area of ​​the country where “cobalt is a source of wealth.”

“There are persecutions and massacres every day, there are people who are tortured, people who are forced to leave their homes and forced to flee,” condemns a priest who has lived in the Democratic Republic of the Congo for 15 years.

The eastern provinces of the DRC, notably North Kivu and neighboring Ituri, have “lived for decades in a state of constant instability due to the presence of various armed groups.

Born in Mortagua, Viseu district, the missionary says that in the Congo “no one escapes persecution.” “Catholics, Protestants and sects are treated equally”, given that “the religious question does not affect the situation at all”.

The priest says that “the Church is being persecuted, but to be a Christian means to be persecuted.” “The Catholic Church, which has great weight in public life, which has a large number of Catholics, which, by vocation, denounces, tells the truth and strives to defend the rights of the people, of course, is not appreciated by the simple,” he emphasizes.

The world “crossed its arms” on the problems in Africa

The priest admits that the President of the Democratic Republic of the Congo, Felix Tshisekedi, is ready to fight corruption, but says that, on the one hand, the government is involved in the situation, and on the other hand, it is powerless to resolve it.

“The complicity is there to keep getting what they get from the stuff they sell and ship out of the country anyway,” he explains.

On the other hand, Marcelo’s father accuses the international community of doing nothing for the suffering people of the Congo and trying to “keep capitalizing on the wealth of the country” by sending “weapons to be able to keep up the unrest and thus keep on stealing easily” . .

“The Congo is a very rich country, and it is a bit strange that such a rich country is at the same time so poor. There is gold, diamonds, copper, cobalt, soil that could give twice a year, it’s hard to understand,” the missionary laments, and then accuses: “there are interests from outside (the international community) to be able to continue to benefit from everything rich, and so they keep sending weapons to keep the mess going and thus easily keep stealing.”

The missionary ensures that “when there is a problem in Africa, everyone folds their hands” and gives an example of the reluctance to find a cure for malaria, which “kills a huge number of people every day”, and now with Covid-19. 19 pandemic “the whole world plunged into disaster.”

The priest assures that “there are more people who die in Africa from malaria than those who die from Covid”, and rhetorically asks: “Who created a medicine to treat poor Africans? The problem of malaria after all this time?”

Marcelo’s father replies, “No one, it doesn’t matter, it doesn’t matter. Since we cannot profit from what we do, it is not important to make medicine, it is not important to help a country that will not repay us, ”he laments.

Pope ‘deeply wishes’ to visit Congo

In this interview with RenaissanceFather Marcelo Oliveira assures that “the population still expects that soon” the Pope will visit the Democratic Republic of the Congo.

He believes that “for people living in conditions of constant attacks, persecution, the visit of the Pope would be a moment of encouragement.”

First of all, because Francis planned a visit to the city of Goma in the eastern part of the country, “where he will be with some victims of violence, and, of course, these people may be a little disappointed.”

“However, the population continues to expect that he will be able to come to us soon,” he assures.

The priest confirms that the Pope “deeply desires to be and come” to the Congo to “know the reality” and acknowledges that “the celebration planned for this Sunday with the Congolese community at St. Parolina in Kinshasa “is a sign of such a will.”

“The Pope deeply desires to be and come, because I believe he has heard so much about the reality of the suffering of the Congolese people, and therefore he has a deep desire to be able to come,” he assures.

Francis’ trip to South Sudan and the Congo, scheduled for July 2-7, has been rescheduled for a new date to be fixed due to the Pope’s health.
