If you are deciding to split up, you may want to do this in style. New York’s Gideon Putnam Resort & Spa located in Saratoga Springs, is known for its weddings, but they are now all set to offer a package which serves up a fast divorce in a scenic setting. For US$ 5000, the divorcing pair receives separate rooms. They could also access the resort’s spa, swimming area, tennis courts, golf courses as well as a lawyer, stated a leading newspaper.
Jim Halfens, who would run the program at the Gideon Putnam, still runs a same type concept in Netherlands. While speaking to a leading newspaper, Jim told that practically, they are divorced after signing on Sunday. After that, all work is done and they send it to a judge who just hits a stamp on this to make it official.
And since this is 2014, people at the hotel would have the scope of being filmed for a reality program presently in progress. To take part in Divorce Hotel program, couples have to be the citizens of the United States, and agree to use only the attorneys offered by the program to deal with the divorce.
Rob Sgarlata, one of the hotel representatives, told that the new package would have real great appeal to various type of clientele — but would not harm the Gideon Putnam’s reputation as a great and romantic wedding destination. Rob added that from their point of view, these are more guests with a specific requirement, and they have a scope to help them to fill that requirement. They do not see it as different from any of our other groups.
On Monday, the officials of New York City dealt with Spider Man, Elmo as well as other fictional characters with a proposal to deepen a crackdown on the costumed road performers who stray Times Square and pose with travelers for tips.
If the bill is passed, then as per law it would require background checks, licensing as well as other necessary measures for the dressed characters in what City Council member Andy King termed a public safety concern.
Recently, he told that it is not about violating anybody’s First Amendment rights, this bill is strictly about safety in the city of New York City. The police, business owners and city leaders started a clamp down in the past few months after many of the characters were caught by police for harassment, assault as well as other crimes when they were on a job.
Earlier in July, a man dressed as Spiderman reportedly punched a police officer after demanding tips from passersby. The Times Square Alliance head Tim Tompkins told that Times Square as quirky is fine, but creepy is not.
Some of the supporters of the street performers has said that they are law abiding and the proposals would restrict where the street performers could work and imply a waiting time as well as a US$ 170 licensing fee and it would also limit their ability to back their families. Elizabeth Holland has stated that it would leave people without a job for months.
It seems that the time would be tough or Batman as well as his fellow comic book characters bustling for tips in Times Square, New York are handing superheroes a real bad name. Last week, Spider-Man even clocked off a cop. Now, there is a new mayor with a type of attitude which does not bode well for caped crusader, or for Mickey Mouses, Minnie Mouses, Hello Kitties, Cookie Monsters, Cats in Hats, Elmos as well as other masked characters who mill about the Crossroads of the World.
On Monday, Mayor Bill de Blasio told that he believes that this has gone too far. Speaking to the reporters, he added that he does not know whether to call it an industry or what you call it, but it needs to be regulated.
This is not the very first time when the city officials have talked about posing restrictions on the costumed swarms, who number in dozens in places like Times Square in New York. Every time one of them is impeached of acting creepier rather than cute; now there are calls for legislation.
In the year 2012, an Elmo was caught on video in an anti-Semitic jabber. Previous year, a Cookie Monster was caught by police after he allegedly pushed a toddler and also yelling at his mom for failing to tip him liberally. In January, a person dressed as Toy Story’s Woody was accused with sex abuse for allegedly touching teenagers and girls. There have been countless allegations of popular characters groping women.
