Brisbane’s hottest suburbs revealed

first_img FOLLOW SOPHIE FOSTER ON FACEBOOK (Also in the national top 50) Parks are a key attraction in Graceville, this being a file photo of the grandstand at Western Districts Cricket Club in the suburb. Picture: Richard Walker.Place Graceville lead agent Brad Robson said “demand has consistently outstripped supply” in the hottest suburb on the index — Graceville.“In very recent times, we have seen a small spike in the numbers of homes that have come to the market and I put this to the Spring Selling Season. Given the huge demand for the suburb, buyers have simply snapped them up, creating an increase in the amount of sales within the area.”He said the suburb was just 7km from the CBD with “a country town feel”.“I believe that 2019 will be more sustainable price growth for the suburb as demand will remain high and supply will remain low.”New resident Joni Armbruster had no idea just how popular the suburb was when her family bought into it this September.“It’s a fantastic area, it doesn’t surprise me at all,” she said. “It has great schools, close to the city, a neighbourhood feel, close to public transportation, lots of local restaurants and cafes that you can walk to. Also a lot of parks and open green spaces.”Her family expect to remain in the suburb for at least the next decade.“The schools are fantastic, public and private, so you have great options either way. We just love the area.” The two hottest suburbs in Brisbane next year are located about seven to eight kilometres from the CBD.The hottest suburbs in Brisbane have been revealed, and surprise contenders have beaten bluechips to take out the top three spots where prices were expected to fire up in 2019.All up the Price Predictor Index, which tracks rising sales in suburbs across the country as a precursor to strong price growth the following year, found 29 suburbs in Brisbane were “rising steadily” but three in particular were standouts.

The suburb is now tipped to be the hottest in Brisbane in 2019. Only two other Brisbane suburbs made the elite national list — Indooroopilly, a mere kilometre from Graceville, and Kippa-Ring, 27km north of the CBD. Index lead analyst Terry Ryder of Hotspotting said “where demand is rising, prices tend to follow”.Kippa-Ring’s surge, he said, was influenced by the new rail line to the Redcliffe Peninsula, whereas Graceville and Indooroopilly were both “top-end” suburbs with median prices above $900,000 and close to strong drivers like schools and universities, restaurants and parks.He said a turnaround occurred with tier one suburbs above $1m medians first seeing strong growth — such as Hamilton, Paddington and Bulimba recording double-digit growth in the past year — “then the rest of the market follows.”“I do expect Brisbane in the coming year to be stronger than it has been (overall),” Mr Ryder said.Darren Piper of Universal Buyers Agents said they were already “seeing the first signs of a turn around in the apartment market and property buyers should take notice”.“After so much doom and gloom we’re already seeing a huge uplift in the amount of enquiries we receive for Brisbane.” More from newsParks and wildlife the new lust-haves post coronavirus15 hours agoNoosa’s best beachfront penthouse is about to hit the market15 hours agoOctober was one of his biggest months on record, he said, with “a lot of buyers attracted by the lifestyle, great schools, weather and prices of course” in Brisbane.last_img read more

Local bakeries assisted to meet compliance standards

first_img Share 29 Views   no discussions Share LocalNews Local bakeries assisted to meet compliance standards by: – November 18, 2011 Sharing is caring!center_img Tweet Share Image via: jscribes.comThe Dominica Bureau of Standards, the Environmental Health Department, Invest Dominica Authority (IDA) in association with the AID Bank has embarked on a programme aimed at enhancing quality management and labelling of locally produced pre-packaged baked products in the Commonwealth of Dominica.The programme provides assistance to bakeries on the island for them to become compliant with operational, labeling and production standards to enable them to be better prepared to meet the demands of domestic, regional and international consumers. One of the main aims of the collaborative efforts of the Agencies and the bakers is the implementation of a project, which seeks to ensure food safety and quality through the adoption of best practices, adherence to food safety guidelines improved technology in bread production and the labeling of pre-packaged breads and related pastry products. Additionally, the project will serve to heighten public awareness of the importance of food and quality control in the industry.The key elements of the project with the bakers are sensitization and public awareness programme, technical assistance that includes study tours for bakers and the provision of technical expertise in baking technology, safety and packaging.On November 20, 2011, Dr. Steve John, Director of Bureau of Standard will lead a delegation consisting of seven Dominican bread and pastry producers and representatives from the Environment and Health Department and Invest Dominica on seven-day study tour to three countries, Jamaica, Martinique and Saint Lucia.The delegation will have discussions with the Agencies responsible for Food Safety standards in these countries and tour bakeries and observe advanced baking technology including packaging.The delegation will also visit the School of Baking of the University of Technology (UTECH) in Jamaica where discussions will be held on food safety and sanitisation, bakery science and bakery engineering. The participants will also tour a fully mechanized bakery facility at the University. Lectures and discussions will also form part of the study tour activities in the countries visited.It is expected that study tour will assist in increasing the awareness and expose Dominican bread and pastry producers to best practices, product differentiation, modern techniques, quality and safety measures and utilization of modern technology in the industry. The project has received significant technical and financial support from the partnering Agencies, and has recently benefitted from a grant of $ 383,000 from the Centre for the Development of Enterprises (CDE) to the AID Bank.Press ReleaseInvest Dominica Authoritylast_img read more

Best brushes off Kidney speculation

first_imgRory Best insists Ireland have brushed aside speculation over the future of head coach Declan Kidney amid preparations for their must-win RBS 6 Nations clash with France. He continued: “We have two games left to play and we must finish well. It will be tough against France, but we’re back at home. “We will have to be much more efficient at putting away the chances that we create than we have been. We prepared to beat Scotland and didn’t. Our standards have slipped because we expect to win these games. “But we still have a lot of confidence in the ability in this squad.” Best has offered strong support to Ulster team-mate Paddy Jackson, whose poor kicking performance contributed to Ireland’s 12-8 defeat by Scotland on Sunday. “When you’re a professional player not everything goes perfectly for you. Paddy’s a fantastic talent, a great player with a great attitude,” Best said. “His general play was very good, but under the type of microscope that’s on Test rugby every detail is analysed. It’s unrealistic to think that you will go through your career without having moments when things didn’t go so well. “Great players dust themselves down and critically analyse what they did and try to get better the next week. Even at this young age Paddy has had a few moments at Ulster, but has bounced back strongly. That’s the type of guy he is and why he will bounce back from this.” Successive defeats by England and Scotland have seen calls for Kidney to step down intensify, and it appears unlikely he will be in place for the summer tour to North America. “It’s not a difficult environment to work in. Only two or three weeks ago we were talking about players’ contracts,” Best said. “It’s professional sport. We’re in it as a team and squad, and that includes the management.” center_img Press Associationlast_img read more

Composed, calculated MDI boys’ soccer team tops Ellsworth

first_imgBAR HARBOR — To the naked eye, the attacking threats seemed to come out of nowhere; to the Mount Desert Island boys’ soccer team, they were the natural products of inch-perfect execution.From the opening kick of last Wednesday’s game against Ellsworth, MDI had its hands full in the bitter cold against its No. 1 rival. Flipping offside traps, attacking down the wings and sending extra players forward to pursue scoring opportunities, the Eagles threw everything they had at the Trojans for 80 minutes.Each of those factors could have posed a number of potential problems for MDI. Instead, the Trojans were composed and calculated as they capitalized at both ends of the pitch to add another chapter to a promising 2019 campaign.MDI rode a series of strong counterattacks and well-timed runs Wednesday to a 3-0 victory over Ellsworth at Del Luce Stadium. The win stretched the Trojans’ unbeaten run to five games and kept the team near the top of the standings with less than three weeks remaining in the regular season.This is placeholder textThis is placeholder text“We’ve talked all season about focusing on playing our game and playing MDI soccer,” MDI head coach Tyler Frank said. “For us, that means keeping possession and staying within our system to do what we need to do to win.”MDI’s Reider Watson flicks a pass past Ellsworth’s Pascal Poirier during the first half of a high school boys’ soccer game Oct. 2 at Del Luce Stadium. The second-ranked Trojans are unbeaten in their past five games with four wins and one draw. ELLSWORTH AMERICAN PHOTO BY MIKE MANDELLAlthough MDI opened the game with a handful of scoring chances, the Trojans were unable to take advantage of their successful runs past the Eagles’ offside traps. The Trojans registered two shots on goal in the opening 15 minutes, but Ellsworth goalkeeper Mason Tupper stopped the first with diving save in the bottom-right corner and the second with a parry in the center of the goal.MDI’s persistence soon paid dividends, though, as Ieuan Howell slipped behind the Ellsworth defense, sprinted inside the 6-yard box and lifted the ball over Tupper to put the visitors ahead with 23 minutes, 41 seconds left in the half. Shane Bonilla came close to providing the second goal for the Trojans 10 minutes later, but the senior’s long-range volley instead struck the post after tailing away at the last possible second.In the second half, Ellsworth (2-6-1) put MDI on the back foot right away with two scoring chances in the opening five minutes. The Eagles came even closer 10 minutes into the half as Tulas Weaver sent a powerful strike from a difficult angle mere inches wide of the woodwork.“[Ellsworth] definitely came out strong in the second half and challenged us,” Frank said. “They had a few good chances and put us in a spot where we had to weather the storm.”Weather the storm the Trojans did. After surviving another Ellsworth scoring chance, MDI (5-1) launched a rapid counterattack that resulted in a Treyan Nelson goal with 22:25 left to play. Five minutes later, Trevor Morrison scored via an assist from Walker St. Germain to make the score 3-0 and put the game out of the home team’s reach.“Once I beat the defender, I knew I just had to put it in the right spot to beat [the goalkeeper],” Morrison said. “I just pulled my pace out and made a one-touch finish.”The game was the sixth for MDI in a difficult seven-game stretch that’s also pitted the Trojans against Brewer, John Bapst, Caribou and George Stevens Academy. Since losing 3-0 to Brewer on Sept. 17, MDI has conceded just two goals in five games.Making the right runs forward wasn’t always a seamless endeavor for MDI, which found itself caught offside a number of times in attempts to launch counterattacks and beat Ellsworth’s traps. Yet in the grand scheme of the game, the strategy produced the goalsMembers of the MDI boys’ soccer team celebrate a goal by Treyan Nelson (second from left) during the second half of a game against Ellsworth on Oct. 2 at Del Luce Stadium. The Trojans and Eagles will meet again at 6 p.m. Oct. 22 in Bar Harbor. ELLSWORTH AMERICAN PHOTO BY MIKE MANDELLthe Trojans needed to earn the win.“We realized they were going to play a flat four, and flat fours are beatable, especially when they stack their midfielders on top of that a little bit,” Frank said. “You just have to calibrate your runs and your passes, and if they don’t adjust, you’ve got a chance on goal.”The loss was a tough one for an Ellsworth team that is still dealing with the losses of two veteran starters, Javen Clarke and Pedro Little-Siebold. Yet the fight the Eagles showed against one of Class B’s top teams was a positive for coach Paul Lock, whose team is still in position for a spot in the regional playoffs.“I can’t be anything but proud of them,” Lock said. “To lose so many people during the year and have players be willing to step in and play other positions, it’s an inspiring thing to see.”Ellsworth’s next game will be on the road against Caribou (7-0-1) at 4 p.m. Saturday, Oct. 5. The Eagles will host Presque Isle at 5:30 p.m. next Wednesday, Oct. 9, before playing on the road against Maine Central Institute at 11 a.m. next Saturday, Oct. 12.As for MDI, the Trojans will host Brewer (2-7) at 7 p.m. Saturday, Oct. 5, before playing road games against Old Town (4 p.m. next Wednesday) and Hermon (6 p.m. Oct. 15). Wins in those contests would improve the Trojans’ chances of securing a top-four seed and first-round bye in the Northern Maine playoffs.“The chemistry we have this year is unreal,” Morrison said. “I’ve been waiting for this for three years to play with this group of boys. Everyone is putting in the hardest work, and it’s paying off.” Hospice volunteers help families navigate grief and find hope – September 12, 2020 Latest Posts Mike MandellMike Mandell is the sports editor at The Ellsworth American and Mount Desert Islander.

Other Sports Amit Panghal Creates History, Becomes First Indian To Win Silver In Boxing World Championships

first_imgOnce again up against a taller and more muscular opponent, Panghal gave it his all but fell short when it came to connecting accurately. The Asian Games and Asian Championships gold-medallist nonetheless achieved a historic feat.The silver marks a new high for the boxer from Rohtak, who has been simply unstoppable since breaking into the national scene with a bronze in the 2017 Asian Championships.Zoirov, despite being unseeded, was always going to be a tough challenge as he also has to his credit silver medals in the Asian Games and the Asian Championships.”I am obviously very happy but there is unfinished business as of now. I have worked really hard and I would like to ensure that I get the best prize,” Panghal had said after the semi-final.Panghal’s performance that earned him a spot in the semi-finals sealed his places in next year’s Olympic qualifiers with the Boxing Federation of India (BFI) stating earlier that those pugilists who win medals at the Worlds will be automatic picks for the qualifiers.Before this year, India had never won more than one bronze medal at a single edition of the world championship. In the last edition, only Gaurav Bidhuri was able to bring home a bantamweight bronze medal.The past medal-winners at the big event are Vijender Singh (2009), Vikas Krishan (2011), Shiva Thapa (2015) and Gaurav Bidhuri (2017). This time, India was among nine countries, out of a total of 78, which had their boxers in the finals. Uzbekistan topped the finalists count with four boxers.With Agency Inputs New Delhi : Indian boxer Amit Panghal had to settle for silver after losing to Olympic champion Shakhobidin Zoirov of Uzbekistan in an intense 52kg category final on Saturday. Panghal lost 0-5 but the scoreline was hardly a reflection of the fight he put on against the more fancied Zoirov.The second-seeded Panghal became the first Indian male boxer to finish second in the world event and the country achieved its best ever medal haul of two. Manish Kaushik (63kg) had signed off with a bronze earlier, after losing in the semifinals.

England fully prepared for Australia’s aggression, says Root

first_imgMELBOURNE, Australia (Reuters) – England were caught out by Australia’s aggression during the ill-fated 2013/14 Ashes campaign but captain Joe Root says they are fully prepared for short-pitched bowling and on-field chatter when the series kicks off in Brisbane next week.Root was a member of Alastair Cook’s side that was demolished by a Mitchell Johnson-led pace assault and sledging relentlessly throughout the 5-0 series defeat four years ago.Root, then 22, won praise for a defiant half-century in the Adelaide Test but, like the rest of the England batters, struggled to score runs on most of Australia’s pitches.“I think last time it maybe caught us out,” Root told reporters yesterday in Townsville where England are preparing for their final warm-up match against a Cricket Australia XI.“I think we’re a little bit wiser to it this time around.“It’s still about making sure we’re absolutely prepared for any scenario out there.“We’re expecting it to be hostile, we’re expecting it to be very loud and rowdy atmosphere at the Gabba.“Hopefully we’ll be in a really good place and really ready for that because I think we’ve got our heads round what to expect.”With all-rounder Ben Stokes absent from the tour, Root will have a bigger load to carry in leading a team with a number of inexperienced batsmen.Australia spinner Nathan Lyon said last week the home side’s bowlers would compete fiercely for the England captain’s wicket.Root was unfazed by the attention.“I’ve heard a lot of chat about them targeting me in particular,” he said.“From our point of view we’ll be targeting every single one of them, we won’t be singling any guys out.“Bring it on. It’s what it’s about. You want that competitive element and those little in-house rivalries, if you like.”Former England captain and media pundit Michael Vaughan has accused Australia of making things hard for England in their preparations by serving up low-quality tour sides away from the Test venues.The tourists will play another modest Cricket Australia XI in the remote northern city of Townsville from today.Root said it was nothing different from the last tour.“I think we’ve mentally approached that slightly differently this time round and probably slightly better, if I‘m being brutally honest,” he said.“Obviously it would have been nice to get a feel for the grounds, especially for the guys who haven’t played at those venues.“I don’t think it makes too much of a difference.”last_img read more

India’s Dhoni quits international cricket, to play IPL

first_imgNEW DELHI, India (Reuters) – Former India captain Mahendra Singh Dhoni quit international cricket yesterday, drawing curtain on an illustrious, trophy-laden career with a cryptic Instagram message.“Thanks a lot for your love and support throughout. From 19:29hrs consider me as Retired,” he wrote on Instagram here with a video montage which had images from his 15-year international career.The message ended speculation around the international future of the enigmatic 39-year-old, who quit Test cricket in 2014 and has not played for India since the team’s semi-final exit at the 50-overs World Cup in July last year.“It is the end of an era,” Indian cricket board (BCCI) president Sourav Ganguly said in a statement. “His leadership qualities have been something which will be hard to match, especially in the shorter format of the game. “Every good thing comes to an end and this has been an absolutely brilliant one,” added Ganguly, himself a former India captain.BCCI secretary Jay Shah called Dhoni “one of the greats of the modern era”.“I wish him all the very best for IPL and his future endeavours,” Shah said, suggesting Dhoni would play in this year’s Indian Premier League (IPL) in the United Arab Emirates from September 19. Dhoni burst onto the international scene in a one-dayer against Bangladesh in late 2004 as a long-haired wicketkeeper with spectacular power-hitting prowess.He went on to become statistically India’s most successful captain, leading them to World Cup triumphs in 2007 (T20) and 2011 (ODI), while they also became the top ranked Test team under him in 2009.As a batsman, Dhoni also transformed himself into one of the best finishers of the game, famously illustrating it by securing India’s 2011 World Cup victory by hitting a six in the final against Sri Lanka. The immensely popular cricketer ends his ODI career having played 350 matches, scoring 10 773 runs and effecting 444 dismissals. He holds the record for most dismissals in T20 internationals with 91 in 98 matches.Overall, Dhoni has amassed 17 000 international runs across formats, including 16 centuries and more than 800 victims as wicketkeeper.last_img read more

Ljungberg Calls for Speedy Managerial Decision after Man City Dominance at…

first_imgCaretaker Arsenal manager Freddie Ljungberg believes the club must make a permanent appointment quickly to halt their slide after a Kevin De Bruyne inspired Manchester City cruised to a 3-0 win at the Emirates yesterday.De Bruyne scored twice and teed up Raheem Sterling for City’s other goal to leave Arsenal down in ninth in the Premier League on the back of just one win in their last 12 games in all competitions.Ljungberg has been in charge for five of those matches, but is hoping a permanent appointment can be made before next weekend’s trip to Everton. “It is a great honour to do this, but I’ve said I think it needs to be cleared up, to make a decision so that everybody knows,” said Ljungberg.“It is totally up to the club. I try to do things as well as I can but it would be good to make a decision, regardless of what it is.”There was little doubt City would bounce back from a derby defeat to Manchester United last weekend that left them 14 points behind Liverpool at the top of the table after De Bruyne opened the scoring just 90 seconds in.Gabriel Martinelli had Arsenal’s only shot on target inside the first minute when Ederson blocked from his fellow Brazilian.City broke straight up the other end and Gabriel Jesus’s low cross picked out De Bruyne to stroke the ball into the roof of the net.Pep Guardiola’s men had been ruthlessly cut apart on the counter-attack by United and were conscious not to make the same mistake again as they allowed Arsenal possession for large spells before breaking at speed.The visitors doubled their lead just 15 minutes in with De Bruyne this time the creator as he carried the ball forward before squaring for Sterling to slot home his 16th goal of the season.De Bruyne then showed his superior quality to any other player on the pitch again five minutes before halftime as this time he curled into the bottom corner on his weaker left foot from outside the box.“He is an extraordinary player, we didn’t discover his quality today,” said Guardiola.“He sees passes and actions that normally human beings cannot see. I always tell him you have to score more goals and today he scored two incredible goals.”Only a brilliant save from Bernd Leno denied De Bruyne a first half hat-trick moments later as the German’s fingertips turned another long-range De Bruyne effort onto the post.Arsenal’s preparation for the game had been disturbed by the controversy surrounding Mesut Ozil’s support for the Muslim minority Uighurs in Chinese province Xinjiang.Chinese state broadcaster CCTV pulled coverage of the match and Arsenal distanced themselves from Ozil’s comments.The German was still selected by Ljungberg, but made little impact before being substituted on the hour mark and his slow walk to the touchline before booting away his gloves in frustration drew the wrath of some disgruntled Arsenal fans.“The China thing, that is a political discussion that I leave for the club to deal with,” added Ljungberg.“When it comes to other stuff, he should be annoyed when he comes off, but I am the coach I took the decision we need more energy in the team.“We are a team that wants to have possession but sometimes we need to run and tackle and try to win the ball back.”Only Leno prevented the scoreline from becoming even more embarrassing for Arsenal as he saved one-on-one from Jesus and at his near post from Riyad Mahrez.The appointment of a new manager cannot come soon enough if the Gunners are to salvage anything from a thoroughly disappointing season so far.Share this:FacebookRedditTwitterPrintPinterestEmailWhatsAppSkypeLinkedInTumblrPocketTelegramlast_img read more

first_img Published on April 20, 2014 at 10:07 pm Coming off a dominant 11-1 road win against Colgate on Thursday, Syracuse was swept in a three-game series at Florida State this weekend.The Orange (20-22, 10-11 Atlantic Coast) lost both games of the doubleheader on Saturday to the No. 9 Seminoles (44-6, 21-3) by scores of 7-1 and 5-0 in games one and two, respectively.
