Local real estate commercial developer Doug Manchester struggled for at least 15 years to build his long-cherished Pacific Gateway Project on a dozen blocks along the city’s central waterfront at the foot of Broadway. He suffered a major setback when the Great Recession of 2009 rolled over the region like a tsunami, and as a result, was able to bring little of his overall dream to fruition. The exception being the recent completion of the 17-story, 373,000-square-foot new headquarters high-rise for the Navy.

But in a surprise announcement this weekend, Manchester revealed he has sold off five of the remaining seven blocks of his ownership to IQHQ, a new San Diego area developer that is focusing on life science projects. And IQHQ

Buccaneers vs. Broncos score: Tom Brady takes care of business against depleted Denver

The Tampa Bay Buccaneers were inconsistent at times, but Tom Brady had his first game with three passing TDs with his new team. The Buccaneers controlled the game from start to finish in a 28-10 victory over the Denver Broncos. The Bucs are still trying to find their groove on offense, but Brady finished 25 of 38 for 297 yards and three touchdowns for a 115.8 passer rating. Tampa Bay lost Chris Godwin to a hamstring injury, but its pass offense was balanced with eight different receivers catching a pass. 

Scotty Miller led Tampa Bay with 83 yards receiving and Mike Evans had two touchdown catches — on two targets that went for a total of two yards — giving him four scores in three games with Brady. Tampa Bay had just 68 rushing yards, though the Buccaneers averaged 5.4 yards per play. The defense held a lifeless Broncos offense

Patriots notebook: David Andrews injury takes center stage leading up to Week 3 matchup with Raiders

The Patriots will be squaring off against the Raiders on Sunday without a key piece to their offensive attack. On Saturday, New England placed starting center David Andrews on injured reserve after missing the past week of practice due to what they are calling a hand injury. Jay Glazer of FOX Sports reported on Friday that Andrews actually had surgery this week to repair a broken thumb on his snapping hand. This doesn’t come without an attempt to play for Andrews, however, as he was spotted during warmups on Thursday with a cast around his right arm. Mike Giardi of the NFL Network even reported that the 28-year-old was trying to snap with his other hand to play in Week 3, but the club is going in a different direction. 

From here, New England does find itself in an unenviable position as they don’t have the luxury of having a

Facebook takes a shot at Apple over stance on paid online events for game devs

Facebook and Apple aren’t getting along, and the social network is taking yet another shot at Apple today. This dispute is over paid online events, and it seems to be a sign of deteriorating relations among the tech giants.

In August, Facebook introduced paid online events. It let Facebook Page owners create an online event, set a price, promote the event, collect payments, and host the event in one place. It was a way to help small businesses recover lost revenue, as only 19% of surveyed businesses are getting any financial help during the pandemic.

Facebook said it would not collect any fees from these paid online events for at least a year. On Android and the web, it instituted that policy so small businesses could keep 100% of the revenue. But on iOS, Facebook asked Apple to eliminate its “30% App Store tax” or allow Facebook to offer Facebook

Ryan Meyers isn’t comfortable expressing his family’s good summertime fortune, but the numbers don’t lie.

The bulk of summer (June through August) brought an 8% year-over-year increase in rounds played at the Meyers family’s Riviera Country Club in Ormond Beach. A 13.5% increase in cart use, 13% increase in non-member play, and a 10% jump in practice-range revenue.

“I hate to say it, but it really has been beneficial to us,” he says of the unusual circumstances that had golf perceived as one of the few safe recreational activities during the coronavirus pandemic.

Florida’s golf courses were never forced to shut down, though some did. Restrictions were put in place to lower the chances of viral spread — one person to a freshly sanitized cart, no on-course water coolers, no “19th hole” gatherings, etc.

“It sounds awful to say when other businesses have
