Retail giant Best Buy retailer won’t pay for fridge flood its own contractor caused | 7 On Your Side

ELTINGVILLE, Staten Island (WABC) — When a new fridge flooded and caused thousands of dollars in damage, a young couple says a retail giant turned its back on them.

“To be honest I was so upset, I couldn’t even handle it,” Jason Anello said.

Welcome to Jason and Abby Anello’s newlywed nightmare. Their new home was ruined before he could even carry her over the threshold.

“It’s just been a big headache,” Anello said.

He’s talking about the thousands in water damage due to a faulty fridge installation.

The listing for their Staten Island home caught their eye and features an open floor plan with a big kitchen and hardwood floors. So, they bought it.

“We put a lot of money into the house with renovations,” said Anello.

Why hire a contractor if subcontractors do all the work?

Good contractors can bring piece of mind, knowledge of industry standards and project management expertise. But they also bring tangible, necessary things to the job: a license, insurance and worker’s compensation. If you act as the general contractor yourself, you assume liability for injuries and property damage.

Perhaps the most stress relief comes from the fact that the general contractor is responsible for the quality of all the work he or she oversees as part of the contract. If something goes wrong during the construction, it’s up to the general contractor to get it fixed. The cost of those repairs comes o­ut of the contract budget, not your pocket.

Knowledge of building codes, appropriate materials, proper construction methods and safety — both during and after construction — also is a key resource that a general contractor brings to your project. This knowledge saves you the time and trouble of

Private military company – Wikipedia

company providing armed combat or security services

A private military company (PMC) is a private company providing armed combat or security services for financial gain. PMCs refer to their staff as “security contractors” or “private military contractors”. Private military companies refer to their business generally as the “private military industry” or “The Circuit”.[1]

The services and expertise offered by PMCs are typically similar to those of governmental security, military or police forces, most often on a smaller scale. While PMCs often provide services to train or supplement official armed forces in service of governments, they can also be employed by private companies to provide bodyguards for key staff or protection of company premises, especially in hostile territories. However, contractors who use offensive force in a war zone could be considered unlawful combatants, in reference to a concept outlined in the Geneva Conventions and explicitly specified by the

Air Force to pay $25 million after accidentally killing contractor in F-16 strafing run

An F-16 Viper assigned to the 311th Fighter Squadron, takes off from Holloman Air Force Base, New Mexico, July 27, 2020

The U.S. government will pay $24.6 million to the widow of an Air Force contractor who was killed after an F-16 accidentally strafed his position with 20mm rounds, court records show.

Retired Master Sgt. Charles “Chuck” Holbrook, a former Tactical Air Control Party airman turned defense contractor, was killed during a nighttime live-fire training exercise at the White Sands Missile Range in New Mexico on January 31, 2017.

Holbrook was killed “when an F-16 student pilot mistook the line of rental cars for the similarly aligned target and was ordered to fire at the group, blowing up one of the rental cars and striking Holbrook in the head with a 20mm round,” according to court documents. 

Holbrook died several hours later at

Survey: Commercial Real Estate Recovery to Accelerate

While commercial real estate has been dealt a debilitating blow because of the pandemic, there are glimmers of hope that a significant recovery may soon take hold. The Urban Land Institute’s Real Estate Economic Forecast, which was released Tuesday during ULI’s virtual 2020 fall conference, shows that the industrial and retail sectors are particular bright spots that are expected to rebound strongly over the next couple of years. A panel of experts at the virtual meetings sounded off on where they see commercial real estate heading.

Industrial is the “star” of commercial real estate. Total annual returns for the sector are projected to be 4.5% in 2020, 6.2% in 2021, and 10% in 2022, according to the ULI survey, which includes insights from more than 30 economists and analysts at the nation’s leading real estate organizations. The flourishing segment of e-commerce storage is expected to continue to surge, said Suzanne

DENVER — EDITOR’S NOTE: 9NEWS is used to covering many different kinds of stories, but usually we’re not directly involved in them. For this reason, A.J. Lagoe from our sister station KARE in Minneapolis is covering the initial stages of the shooting and investigation.

Matthew Dolloff, 30 is facing second-degree murder charges following the shooting and killing of Lee Keltner, 49, during dueling Denver rallies on Saturday.

Dolloff was working as a security guard providing protection for a 9NEWS producer who was filming the rallies. 

The city said Dolloff was not licensed to work security in Denver at all.
