ZPG CEO Alex Chesterman has splashed the cash with a new home in Palm Beach, Florida which he has bought for £6.6m.The property, which has five bedrooms and seven and a half bathrooms, is in what Americans call the colonial style.It is a beach front property off Ocean Boulevard with a heated swimming pool and a beach garden overlooking the surf with its own shower and dining area.Alex benefited from the island’s prime property woes, which are akin to London’s current problems. Homes are taking a long time to sell and being sold at considerable discounts.A former Morgan Stanley banking executive had been trying to sell Alex’s property for several years through agent The Corcoran Group and it was originally on the market for $8.97 million.The price was later dropped to £8.14 million before selling for £6.6m, so the ZPG CEO got it at a 26% off the original asking price.Alex joins a community thronging with both US and international celebrities and business leaders including Donald Trump, whose Mar-A-Lago resort is just a few blocks down the road, as well as his former wife Ivanka Trump, Rod Stewart, Venus and Serena Williams, novelist James Patterson and Tiger Woods.Alex’s home, which is surrounded by the island’s signature palms, features a library, a two-car garage, staff/guest suite and a recently-refurbished kitchen.So why the investment in Palm Beach property? Alex has had nearly £30m million burning a hole in his pocket since he sold 4.25m shares in his company last year, plus a further 4.25 million shares sold last month.His new property comes with risks. Palm Beach often weathers the brunt of inbound hurricanes and this year the area suffered significant damage during torrential rain and 80-mile-and-hour winds when Hurricane Irma passed through, cutting off power to homes on the island for 24 hours and prompting a local curfew.

Dakar – Morocco announced extra health screening measures Tuesday at entry points to the country, in particular at Casablanca airport, after the outbreak of the deadly Ebola epidemic in Guinea.“As a precautionary measure,” the health ministry has stepped up “sanitary checks at entry points … especially at Casablanca airport,” a key transportation hub for north and west Africa, the official MAP news agency reported.Travellers from countries with recorded cases of Ebola will undergo medical tests for signs of haemorrhagic fever, the ministry said in a statement carried by MAP. It said no cases have been recorded in Morocco, whose airport in Casablanca has daily links with Conakry, capital of Guinea.Medical aid organisation Doctors Without Borders said Monday that the Ebola outbreak suspected of killing at least 78 people in Guinea since January was an “unprecedented epidemic” that had spread across the west African nation.Guinean health authorities have recorded 122 suspected cases and 78 deaths.The World Health Organisation has said it is not recommending travel or trade restrictions to Guinea, to Liberia, which has also confirmed cases of Ebola, or to Sierra Leone, which has reported suspected cases, based on the information currently available.But Senegal has closed border crossings to Guinea “until further notice”.The tropical virus leads to haemorrhagic fever, causing muscle pain, weakness, vomiting, diarrhoea and, in severe cases, organ failure and unstoppable bleeding.
FiveThirtyEight’s editor-in-chief, Nate Silver, discussed our NCAA men’s basketball tournament predictions Tuesday with “Good Morning America’s” Josh Elliott.If you missed it, here’s the clip:
Ohio State redshirt junior guard Kam Williams attempts a shot in the first half against Maryland at the Schottenstein Center on Jan. 31. Credit: Ashley Nelson | Sports DirectorWithout sophomore guard JaQuan Lyle available, the Ohio State men’s basketball team knew it had its hand full at No. 21 Maryland, who beat the Buckeyes just two weeks earlier.OSU dug its way back from several double-digit deficits, but couldn’t close the gap, as the Buckeyes (15-11, 5-8 Big Ten) fell 86-77 to the Maryland Terrapins (21-4, 9-3 Big Ten) in College Park, Maryland, on Saturday.Senior forward Marc Loving led all scorers with 24 points for the Scarlet and Gray, as junior forward Jae’Sean Tate added 20. Freshman guard Anthony Cowan led Maryland with 19 points as freshman guard Kevin Huerter had 18.In the final four minutes, both teams caught fire from beyond the arc. Down 77-66 with 3:41 remaining, Loving hit back-to-back 3s to cut the Maryland lead to five. Terrapin freshman guard Kevin Huerter answered with a 3 of his own, but redshirt junior guard Kam Williams answered for the Buckeyes to make it 80-75.On the next possession, the Buckeyes needed a stop, but Cowan had other plans. He effectively put the game away for Maryland with a 3 with only 41 seconds remaining to increase the lead back to eight.Sophomore guard C.J. Jackson had 13 points in his third start of the season, and redshirt junior center Trevor Thompson had 11 points and 10 rebounds for his 10th double-double.The Terrapins came out firing from the beginning, knocking down four of their first six shots and led 9-0 at the first media timeout. But the lack of OSU offense wasn’t from a stagnant offense, shots simply weren’t falling despite the Buckeyes grabbing five offensive rebounds in the first four minutes.OSU stopped the bleeding by scoring 11 points over the next four minutes, but a Maryland 8-0 run out of the second media timeout slashed a deeper deficit for the Buckeyes at 24-13.From there, Maryland continued to build to its lead. After back-to-back dunks by backup center Michal Cekovsky, the home team led 40-24, its largest lead of the game.OSU trailed 45-31 at the half behind 20 bench points and seven 3-pointers from the Terps.In the second half, Maryland’s quick-hitting offense continued to overwhelm the Buckeyes. Freshman center Micah Potter narrowly missed a shot that would have cut the Terrapin lead to six, as he watched his 3-point attempt rattle in then out. On the other end, Potter watched freshman guard Kevin Huerter drill a 3 right in front of him, extending the Terps lead to 12.After that, the Buckeyes began to make a comeback. Redshirt junior guard Kam Williams knocked down a jumper and senior forward Marc Loving made a 3 to slim the deficit to seven. A few possessions later, sophomore guard C.J. Jackson made his second 3, making it a six-point game with 13:05 left.OSU continued to fight throughout the half, even withstanding a couple double-digit deficits. In the end, the effort wasn’t enough, despite shooting 60 percent in the second half.Potter and Thompson each fouled out with four minutes to go. Loving and Tate scored 15 and 14 points in the second half, respectively.OSU outrebounded Maryland 32-30, but committed 14 turnovers and were outscored 33-0 in bench points.Up NextOSU plays a second consecutive conference matchup on the road Tuesday at Michigan State at 9 p.m.
