‘Darth Vader House’ hits the market for $4.3 million

Published

on

Known as “The Darth Vader House,” the 7,000 square-foot home in Houston’s West University Place subdivision has a listing price of $4,300,000. The nickname comes from the exterior’s resemblance to the helmet of the famed Star Wars villain.

With an 18,000 square foot lot, the force is strong with this one.

The median lot square feet for West University Place is 7,500 — just about the size of this home. Home values in the area range between $805,000 and $2.7 million — far, far away from this price tag.

The house was built in 1992 and features four bedrooms, five full bathrooms and a four-car garage.

The listing by Martha Turner Sotheby’s International Realty also boasts the contemporary home’s open rooms, ample closets, versatile living spaces and massive windows.

So the dark side may not be so dark after all.

The detection of the variant of concern, with cases popping up in many countries, calls for greater vigilance in the tricity. The increased surveillance of overseas travellers and strict adherence to Covid-appropriate behaviour, which has been junked by most people, is the only thing that will help in keeping things under control.

All states/ UTs have been told to adhere to the overarching ‘test-tracktreat-vaccinate’ principle to ensure stringent implementation of containment measures as per Centre guidelines.“While we have 73% coverage of full immunisation in the city and the antibodies against the virus was seen to be over 75% in the adult population, there is a belief that there is a need for booster dose in some sections of the population. Implying, the immunity is waning and if there is a mutant in any part of the world, it can affect our public health measures if we do not follow Covid appropriate behaviour,” said a public health expert.The administration has also issued an advisory, asking resident of the city to follow all the protocols.

covid: Karnataka resident doctors calls for indefinite strike from November 29 | Bengaluru News

Published

on

BENGALURU: The Karnataka Association of Resident Doctors (KARD) has called for an indefinite strike from November 29 to protest against the non payment of their Covid allowance and non-reduction of fees.
The strike will mean withdrawal of all the elective services including OPDs and elective OTs (excluding emergency services) in all the medical colleges affiliated with KARD. While the association had announced a similar indefinite strike on November 9, it was called off after the minister for medical education promised to resolve it in 10 days time.
“It is unfortunate to note that the assurance given by minister of medical education has not been fulfilled. The intent to address the issue is clearly not visible as resident doctors were excluded from the package of Covid-Risk allowance announced recently by Government of Karnataka. We are left with no option but to display our dissent in this regard…” read a press release from the association.
The state had announced covid allowance of Rs 10,000 per month from April to all resident doctors. However, no money has been paid yet.
Also the academic fees was hiked from Rs 30,000 to Rs 1,20,000, a near 400% hike. The students were not given any concession during Covid even when school fees where reduced.
The association has also pointed out to the repeated postponement of the NEET-PG counselling. “We would hereby like to urge upon the Union Government and the Supreme Court of India to take note of the grievance of resident doctors of the nation and to take necessary measures for expediting the NEET-PG 2021 counselling as well as admission process and to fast-track the Court proceedings on an urgent basis. In case there is no positive response, we will be forced to escalate our protest. The onus of any such unfortunate situation affecting healthcare services will be on the concerned authorities,” said another release from the association.
