The Weatherhead Center for International Affairs recently awarded $250,000 to fund a new Weatherhead Initiative in Afro-Latin American Studies. The Center funds the initiative through its Weatherhead Initiative Research Cluster in International Affairs grant, which supports large-scale and groundbreaking research in the realm of international affairs.Three Harvard investigators will spearhead this new initiative: Alejandro de la Fuente, Robert Woods Bliss Professor of Latin American History and Economics, professor of African and African American studies, and director of the Afro-Latin American Research Institute; Doris Sommer, Ira and Jewell Williams, Jr. Professor of Romance Languages and Literatures and professor of African and African American studies; and Davíd Carrasco, Neil L. Rudenstine Professor of the Study of Latin America and director of the Moses Mesoamerican Archive and Research Project. These researchers will bring together both scholars and students to develop Afro-Latin American studies at Harvard.The initiative’s collaborators will host events and conduct research over the next three years that focus on race rights and justice in Latin America. Together with the founding of the Afro-Latin American Research Institute at Harvard—the first academic unit in the Americas devoted specifically to promote and sponsor research on Afro-Latin Americans—Harvard is poised to become a leader in this growing field.

Haesley Cush in full auction action. Picture: AAP/David ClarkAN agent recently asked me whether a buyer needed to have the deposit at the auction.I was a little surprised at the question given the experience of the agent. But it reminded how specialised auctions are within the industry.The simple answer is yes, you need the deposit at the auction, unless the owner allows for something different, in which case that would apply.For example the standard terms of an auction call for a 10 per cent deposit. But almost every modern auction accepts a five per cent to ten per cent deposit.This reduction is approved by the owners and then offered to the buyers.It made me think about the basic things buyers, and some agents, need to know when bidding at an auction. Some basic auction information: — The name you register in, is the name that goes on the contract. You must know the entity you are buying the property in. Is it your name, your partner’s name, is it a trust fund?

You should ask your agent before the auction day.— You can only sign for yourself, unless you have a written letter from someone else stating you can sign for them eg power of attorney or bidding authority. So if the property has joint owners they must attend or give you a letter.— It is not law on Queensland that a property is announced “On the Market”, it is simply a local traditional. To avoid missing out, you should bid or ask your agent.Getting your terms and bidding entities right is an essential part of a binding contract. To avoid disappointment ensure you speak to your agent before the auction and have all your information in order.
