Marion Sheerman is selling her home in Hamilton, but plans to stay in the suburb. Image: AAP/Richard Waugh.BRISBANE is continuing to defy the downturn gripping the nation’s biggest housing markets, with new figures revealing more than 25 suburbs achieved double-digit property price growth in the past year.While home prices in Sydney and Melbourne have hit the skids, Brisbane’s are marching north, with new research finding the top 10 growth suburbs in the Queensland capital all achieved price increases of more than 15 per cent over the past 12 months.A total of 26 mainland Brisbane suburbs achieved growth of more than 10 per cent in that period, according to data from CoreLogic analysed by realestate.com.au.Five of the top 10 growth suburbs are on the city’s northside, including Sandgate (+22.4%), Hamilton (+20.9%) and Nundah (16.2%).The top 10 growth suburbs in Brisbane achieved home price increases of more than 15 per cent in the past year, according to CoreLogic.

Image: AAP/Darren England.It comes as the latest ABS residential property price index recorded its first annual fall in six years, led by the country’s two biggest cities.Home prices fell 1.2 per cent in Sydney and 0.8 per cent in Melbourne during the June quarter, while prices rose 0.7 per cent in Brisbane.Marion Sheerman is selling her three-bedroom, two-bathroom home in Hamilton — one of the top growth suburbs — for offers over $1.149 million.BUMPER AUCTION WEEKENDThis property at 605/12 Parkside Circuit, Hamilton, is for sale.Mrs Sheerman said the only reason she and her husband were selling was to upgrade to a bigger property to accommodate their children, who were relocating to Brisbane.“We’ll stay in the same area,” she said.“We absolutely love it here.”The median house price in Hamilton is now $1.3 million — more than 20 per cent higher than the same time a year ago.“We’ve had good (price) growth in that house,” Mrs Sheerman said.“We’ve always wanted it as a ‘lockup and leave’ because of the kids being overseas, and it’s perfect for that.”This property at 605/12 Parkside Circuit, Hamilton, is for sale.Hamish Bowman of Ray White New Farm, who is marketing the property, said Hamilton and the inner and middle northern suburbs along the airport corridor were particularly popular with buyers.“A lot of people make the commute north of Brisbane, not just south, so that’s a big drawcard,” Mr Bowman said.“There are lots of good quality private and public schools in Hamilton and a lot of people pay more to be within a good school catchment.“We also get people who work at the airport and people who want to jump on the ferry to get to work, so it ticks a lot of boxes.”***TOP 10 GROWTH SUBURBS IN BRISBANESuburb – Median house price – % change in 12 months1.

NZCPR 9 November 2014Last week in Parliament the Health (Protection) Amendment Bill passed its first reading and was referred to the Health Select Committee. The bill contained a section banning sunbed use for young people under the age of 18. Such sunbed age restrictions have already been adopted in other jurisdictions such as South Australia, the United Kingdom, Germany and California.The Minister of Health, Dr Jonathan Coleman explained to the House that artificial UV tanning is associated with an increased risk of developing skin cancer and that younger people are more vulnerable: “There is strong evidence that people who use sunbeds increase their risk of malignant melanoma and other more common skin cancers. The greater the exposure, the greater the risk of skin cancer.”The Minister went on to say, “The Government considers that the evidence of health harm gives sufficient justification for intervention, particularly in respect of controls to protect young people from exposure to sunbeds.”What was clear from the debate was that Members of Parliament were unanimous in their desire to protect young people from what they considered to be a serious health risk. The Green Party in particular has been very outspoken on this issue for some years, calling not only for tighter regulations, but for an all out ban.The Greens are also opposed to cigarette smoking because of the health risk, promoting the goal of a “Smoke Free Aotearoa” by 2025.About the Author: Dr Muriel Newman is the founder and Director of the New Zealand Centre for Political Research – a public policy think tank she established in 2005 after nine years as a Member of Parliament.http://www.nzcpr.com/the-dangers-of-cannabis/

FIFA CLUB WORLD CUP 2018Gareth Bale scored a hat-trick yesterday as Real Madrid progressed to the FIFA Club World Cup UAE 2018 final with a 3-1 victory over Kashima Antlers at Abu Dhabi’s Zayed Sports City Stadium.The result means Los Blancos will face host team Al Ain in the showpiece decider on Saturday 22 December, while Kashima meet River Plate in the match for third place. Gareth Bale scored hat trick last night to put Real Madrid on the road to clinching a third FIFA Club World Cup title Both sides enjoyed chances in an entertaining first-half but it was Real who got the breakthrough just before half-time. After Toni Kroos went close with a strike just inside the D, a marvellous flick from Marcelo saw the Brazilian find Bale inside the danger area and the Welshman unleashed a low left-footed strike which flew past Kwoun Suntae.After the break, Karim Benzema saw an effort cleared off the line by Shuto Yamamoto. The defender was then involved in Real’s second when he attempted to play the ball back to goal only for Gareth Bale to sneak in and get the better of centre-back Jung Seunghyun before finding the net.Bale then completed his hat-trick – joining Luis Suarez and Cristiano Ronaldo as the only players to do so at the tournament – on 55 minutes by firing into the top corner after being played into the box once again by Marcelo.The AFC Champions League winners continued to battle and they were rewarded on 78 minutes through Shoma Doi, and his goal was confirmed after a VAR review.Real’s focus now turns to host team Al Ain on Saturday as they aim to make it three Club World Cup titles on the bounce.Share this:FacebookRedditTwitterPrintPinterestEmailWhatsAppSkypeLinkedInTumblrPocketTelegram
Duro IkhazuagbeAs Super Eagles file out this evening to take on Ukraine in an international friendly in Dnipro, stand-in Captain of the team, William Troost-Ekong yesterday warned his colleagues not to expect a walk in the park as the hosts have a solid team capable of causing reputation damage.“Ukraine is a strong team with a lot of very good players across Europe. I know a few of those in Italy where I play. This game is definitely going to be very tough but we will give our best and also make it very difficult for them. I believe it will be a very good game,” observed the Udinese centre back ahead of the game. Similarly, Super Eagles Coach Gernot Rohr is also backing the Ukrainian national team to qualify for the 2020 European Championship and predicted that the Yellow-Blue will be a force to be reckoned with in the future following the triumph of their Under-20 at the 2019 FIFA U20 World Cup.Rohr was the coach of the Niger Republic team that lost 1-2 to Ukraine at the Olympic Stadium in a friendly five years ago and has labeled tonight’s game a difficult match for Nigeria.”Of course, we studied the game of the national team of Ukraine. The team now has very good position in the standings of the Euro 2020 qualifying group,” Rohr told reporters at the pre-match conference in Dnipro.”Most likely, the Ukrainian team will qualify for the European Championship.“In addition, memories of the recent match of the youth team of Ukraine with Nigeria at the U20 World Cup this year remains fresh.”In Ukraine, very progressive and talented youth abound. So, I think that the Ukrainian team has a great chance of success in the near future.”Interestingly, spate of injuries to key Super Eagles players is not likely going to allow Rohr to field his first eleven.Long-time midfield enforcer John Obi Mikel retired from international football as curtains drew on the 32nd Africa Cup of Nations finals in Egypt, relinquishing the captain’s band.Weeks later, Odion Jude Ighalo, top scorer in the Africa Cup qualifying campaign and at the tournament proper, also put his international boots on the shelf.Captain Ahmed Musa pulled out of the trip to eastern Europe only days from his flight, as an injury failed to heal as quickly as he expected, and he duly opted to pay more attention to that.His withdrawal followed those of defenders Kenneth Omeruo and Tyronne Ebuehi, midfielder Wilfred Ndidi and forward Henry Onyekuru.Obi, Ighalo, Musa, Omeruo, Ebuehi and Ndidi were all at the FIFA World Cup finals last year, and Onyekuru only missed the party because of injury.Given that six of them (except Ebuehi who also suffered a non-fortuitous injury) were also at the Africa Cup of Nations in Egypt earlier in the summer where Nigeria finished third and with the bronze medals among 24 teams, the squad that will file out today is largely a newbreed.It is an opportunity for the new boys called to Super Eagles to win the heart of Coach Rohr and be considered part of the mainstream going forward.Germany-based goalkeeper Maduka Okoye is in camp to give Francis Uzoho and Ikechukwu Ezenwa a stiff fight for the number one shirt, while usual suspects Olaoluwa Aina, Chidozie Awaziem, Leon Balogun, Jamilu Collins and William Ekong will try to ward off the challenge of Semi Ajayi (listed as defender) and returnee Bryan Idowu at the rear.In the middle, Oghenekaro Etebo and Alex Iwobi should be ahead of returnee Anderson Esiti and new boy Joseph Aribo. It remains to be seen how Kelechi Iheanacho will fit into the middle equation.The fore is brimming with youth and vitality, with Victor Osimhen, Moses Simon, Samuel Chukwueze, Paul Onuachu and Samuel Kalu all available, alongside new birds Joshua Maja and Emmanuel Dennis.Ukraine, like most jurisdictions of the former Soviet Union, broke off from the collapsed mother nation in 1991.Nigeria and Ukraine have never met at senior level, but a group phase clash at the FIFA U20 World Cup in Poland earlier in the summer ended 1-1. Ukraine eventually won the championship.Share this:FacebookRedditTwitterPrintPinterestEmailWhatsAppSkypeLinkedInTumblrPocketTelegram
Written By The New York Jets signed veteran Donte Moncrief to help their banged-up wide receiver group. The team also announced Monday it released Brett Maher, meaning incumbent Sam Ficken won the kicker competition.New York also claimed defensive back Zane Lewis off waivers from the Arizona Cardinals.Moncrief agreed to terms with the Jets on Friday, but the receiver had to go through COVID-19 protocols before officially signing.The 27-year-old Moncrief should give New York a boost at the receiver position as the team enters its final week of training camp. He has 204 receptions for 2,561 yards and 21 touchdowns in six NFL seasons. Moncrief was a third-round draft pick by Indianapolis in 2014 out of Mississippi. He played four seasons with the Colts and one with Jacksonville before splitting time last year with Pittsburgh and Carolina.Breshad Perriman has been sidelined the past week with a knee injury and rookie second-rounder Denzel Mims has missed all of camp with a hamstring issue. Jeff Smith will be out a few weeks with a shoulder injury, while Lawrence Cager remains sidelined with a knee injury.With the Jets needing help at wide receiver, they added Moncrief and also claimed wide receiver D.J. Montgomery off waivers from Cleveland on Sunday.Maher signed with the Jets after last season following two seasons with Dallas. He was in a tight competition with Ficken, who took over as New York’s kicker last year after the team went through a few others at the position, including Chandler Catanzaro, Kaare Vedvik and Taylor Bertolet.“I think that Sam did a solid job last year, and Brett definitely has experience and everything like that,” special teams coordinator Brant Boyer said last week. “I see these guys neck and neck. They’ve both had good camps and we’ll see who shakes out, and that’s kind of how we’re handling it.”Ficken might have sealed the competition during the Jets’ practice at MetLife Stadium, when he made all of his field-goal attempts while Maher went 2 for 4, including misses from 48 and 52 yards. Ficken went just 19 for 27 on field goal attempts last season, but kicked a game-winning 44-yarder as time expired against Miami in Week 14.Lewis, a cousin of former NFL cornerback Shawn Springs, was signed by the Cardinals in May as an undrafted free agent out of the Air Force Academy.Image credits: AP FOLLOW US LIVE TV First Published: 1st September, 2020 06:47 IST Last Updated: 1st September, 2020 06:47 IST Jets Sign Moncrief To Help Injured WR Group, Release K Maher The New York Jets signed veteran Donte Moncrief to help their banged-up wide receiver group.
