Delta Street was still closed around 7 this morning, roughly an hour after the water line first broke.A pickup truck was partially swallowed by the sinkhole, footage from several news crews showed. The hood of the truck was under what looked like several feet of water, with the bed jutting out.The break happened near the top of a hill and flooded several nearby homes. Just after 7 a.m., city crews appeared to have stopped the flow of water from the broken line.

Air India Looks to Raise ₹1200 crore from Real Estate Sales to

first_imgDebt-ridden Air India Ltd has planned on selling some of its real estate assets in the country as well as abroad. This move is expected to help the struggling government-owned carrier to raise around ₹1,200 crore in the next two years, said sources close to the matter.Air India has also obtained the approval of the ministry of civil aviation to sell its properties in Chennai, Coimbatore, and Mumbai.”Selling real estate properties is one among three plans suggested by the government to turn around the airline. Real estate monetization is critical as it would save at least ₹300 crore in terms of interest as the airline has plans to use these proceeds to settle a part of high-cost loans,” a source said, according to Live Mint.Experts say that Air India’s attempt to monetise real estate assets to trim debt and reduce interest costs may prove difficult.The country’s third largest airline is struggling with a huge debt of around ₹40,000 crore as of 31 March and is expected to see a turnaround by 2018-19.It appears that the company is planning to “raise some rupee bonds” and sell a part of its fleet to reduce debt, besides selling properties in the three cities.The state-owned airline actually planned to sell properties amounting to ₹5,000 crore by March next year, but did not get through because of delays in approval from the concerned authorities.In January 2013, Air India roped in real estate consultant DTZ International Property Advisors Pvt Ltd to assist it in disposing of some of real estate properties.”In the last two to three years, a number of corporates who haven’t got adequate cash flows from their core businesses have divested real estate assets to raise capital,” said Rajeev Bairathi, executive director, capital transactions group, at property advisory Knight Frank India.The domestic airline is also considering selling its properties in New Delhi, which include office and reservation building, and housing quarters for staff in Vasant Vihar. It is also looking to sell staff housing quarters in Navi Mumbai and Chennai.”It may not be easy for Air India to sell its assets because they have a mixed bag of assets, including apartments, and not all are clear land parcels. While there is demand for clean titled land parcels, there may not be many takers for other kinds of properties in a slowdown scenario,” said property consultant familiar with the matter.Air India is planning to sell properties present in other countries such as Hong Kong, Nairobi, Mauritius, London, and Tokyo.”Air India is expecting to get at least ₹88 crore for Sterling Apartments in Mumbai, while the Anna Salai plot in Chennai is likely to fetch ₹108 crore. Our Coimbatore plot should fetch ₹20 crore. The majority of money should come from overseas properties,” the source added.last_img read more

Be Selective With Your Social Networks

first_imgIdentify Your Time CommitmentHow many social networks or affinity groups are you a part of right now? Are you really using these groups or are you just a profile on a page?Social networking–like any form of networking–is about dedicating time. You have to spend time connecting with people, sharing ideas and understanding if they are a good fit for you or the possible lead you will send them. Investing time is the only way to reach this goal. Checking in for 10 minutes a day to update your profile status is not going to get you business. Additionally, not being involved in the tools you say you use can also send the wrong message to people who are reaching out to you in your community.The biggest pitfall of social media is the danger of spreading yourself too thin online. How many different profiles can you really maintain? There are applications that allow you to update your multiple profiles at one time, but that may not be the best strategy for building relationships with people online. Social networks that have different audiences often times require different types of updates. Think of it like dressing for the occasion–if you’re going to play golf, you dress accordingly and discuss different topics than you would if you went to a business management conference. Social network marketing is about understanding your audience and the etiquette that goes with each group.Stay Focused and EvaluateAfter you have reviewed the audience and decided to get involved in any social network you need to stay ask these questions to stay on point:What outcomes are you hoping to see from this community?How are you making it happen?How much time are you investing every day to reach your goals?What is your metric for evaluating your results?Staying focused on these items will help you decide whether to stay with one group or try another. You will only get out of the network what you put into it. 3 min read More on social media May 29, 2009 You’ve got traffic–but do you know what it means? Marshall Sponder does.

These invitations are always intriguing–what is this new group all about? Will I get more business if I add myself to this group? The people who invited me to join are people I trust, and if they like it I should think about at least trying this new social network, right?Before you join, here are a few ways to strategize if that social network will work for you.Research the AudienceWhat is this new social network or affinity group all about? Is your potential customer in this group? To find the answers to these questions, spend some time looking at the demographics of the typical member. You can often find them by reviewing the information on the about page or the advertising section of the website. Check out third-party information on the community–this may include blogs, media outlets or research groups. Look for research that shows outcomes, not just the demographic or membership information.Talk to the people who invited you to join. What are they getting out of this new group? How much time do they spend networking with people? Have they closed business from relationships built on this new social network? What other value have they found?
