Units snapped up by local retiree downsizers in Sinnamon Park

first_imgRosemount Retirement Community has launched to market with 50 per cent of apartments and the four penthouses already sold.THE penthouses have been snapped up and more than 50 per cent of stage one has sold, at Wesley Mission Queensland’s newest over 65s development. Rosemount Retirement Community will be built over two stages, with stage one — the seven Storey 70 apartment Madden due for completion in early 2019, and the four storey 65 apartment Tynan set to follow.A village green will separate the two buildings, with residents also enjoying resort style amenities such as an outdoor heated swimming pool, gymnasium, cafe, library, lounge area and cinema.Wesley Mission Queensland Retirement Living sales and marketing manager Jenny Horne said local downsizers were the main buyers getting in early.“The majority of buyers are downsizing from their family homes,” Ms Horne said. “They are locals not wanting to leave the area but wanting a lifestyle where they don’t have big yards and swimming pools to look after or big houses to clean, but still want the lifestyle and facilities with reasonably large apartments.”The one, two and three-bedroom apartments have secure undercover car parking, lift access, 24hr emergency call system, ample storage, reverse cycle air conditioning and most have a study area.More from newsMould, age, not enough to stop 17 bidders fighting for this home4 hours agoBuyers ‘crazy’ not to take govt freebies, says 28-yr-old investor4 hours agoCity glimpses from the top floor apartments at Rosemount Retirement Community in Sinnamon Park.Ms Horne said one of the biggest benefits to moving into a retirement community was being part of a friendly environment.“You often find that people live in a suburb for 40 or 50 years, their kids grow up in that area and they know all of their neighbours, but then gradually the neighbours start moving away until one day they find they’re left in a community not knowing anyone around them,” she said.“Moving into a retirement community you get to make lots of new friends and you’re living in a community of like-minded and like-aged people.”Ms Horne said it was better to move into a retirement community when you were still young enough to get the most enjoyment out of the facilities.The Rosemount community will be co-located with Wesley Mission Queensland’s Sinnamon Village residential aged care communities and wellness centre, giving residents the ability to age in place.“This is great for couples,” Ms Horne said, “as one might need to move to residential aged care before the other one and they conveniently living within walking distance and can visit their partner everyday if they like.”Apartment prices start at $385,500, with construction expected to kick off in September.last_img read more

Ince off to Rams

first_img The 23-year-old has made just nine appearances for the Tigers, scoring once, and spent a brief loan spell with the Rams’ bitter rivals Nottingham Forest earlier this season. Derby head coach Steve McClaren told dcfc.co.uk: “Tom Ince is an exciting talent and we’re pleased that he will be spending the rest of the season with us. Press Association “We’ve obviously found ourselves a bit short out wide lately with Jordon Ibe returning to Liverpool and Johnny Russell picking up a hamstring injury, so to bring someone of Tom’s calibre in is a real coup for us.” Ince made his name at Blackpool, scoring 31 goals in 86 games and landing the Football League’s Young Player of the Year award in 2013. center_img Derby have signed winger Tom Ince on loan from Hull for the rest of the season.last_img read more

Tomkins has shoulder surgery

first_imgJames Tomkins has undergone surgery on his dislocated shoulder, although West Ham hope the defender will be back before the end of the season. There is also positive news in regards to goalkeeper Adrian, who played the full 90 minutes against Arsenal despite dislocating his finger before the match. “Although Adrian dislocated his finger in the warm-up ahead of the Arsenal game at the weekend, he had it put back in and taped up by physiotherapist Dominic Rogan before the game,” Vandenbroucke told the club’s official website, www.whufc.com, “Adrian played through the pain, which is not to be underestimated, and he too will be available to face Sunderland. “Adrian avoided a fracture and ligament damage, so he has been receiving treatment by wearing a brace during the night this week to ensure his finger remains pointing in the right direction! “He was held out of one training session as a precaution but he will be ready to play on Saturday.” Stijn Vandenbroucke, West Ham’s head of medical and sports science, suggests the New Zealand defender is again unlikely to be available when Sunderland visit this weekend, while also confirming Tomkins and young defender Doneil Henry have gone under the knife “Unfortunately, we have had two setbacks in the defence,” he said. “James Tomkins underwent successful surgery on his dislocated shoulder on Wednesday and will now commence his rehabilitation, with a view to him returning to fitness before the end of the season. “Doneil Henry injured his hamstring during his loan spell with Blackburn Rovers and, after consulting with a specialist, he will have an operation at the end of the week. “Winston Reid is recovering and rehabbing well from the hamstring injury he suffered against Chelsea on 4 March. He is working hard on his fitness and is getting closer to a return.” The trio form part of an injury list which still includes forwards Andy Carroll and Enner Valencia. Carroll’s rehabilitation is going well, says Vandenbroucke, and the England forward “no longer needs crutches to walk and now only has a brace on the knee”. Valencia is on schedule to return after the international break after cutting his toe on a broken mug, while fellow forward Carlton Cole is back in contention after recovering from the hamstring injury sustained at Tottenham last month. The 25-year-old, who recently signed a new, long-term contract with the Hammers, sustained the injury during a training session last week. Tomkins’ presence was certainly missed in Saturday’s 3-0 defeat at Arsenal, where midfielder Cheikhou Kouyate had to play at the heart of defence with Winston Reid also absent.

Will regret when I watch a video of my dismissal: Navdeep Saini

first_imgAuckland: Navdeep Saini and Ravindra Jadeja’s 76-run stand for the eighth wicket took India tantalizingly close to an unlikely win. Saini was the aggressor in the partnership, scoring 45 off 49 balls and seemed to be turning the tables in India’s favor after they were 153/7 at one point chasing 275 at Eden Park in Auckland.However, he ended up losing his wicket while going for a big shot to debutant and man of the match Kyle Jamieson on 45. “I will regret it when I go back and see the video,” said Saini at the post-match press conference. “If I hadn’t got out, maybe the result could have been different. I will regret that I took it so close and maybe could have gotten closer.”We felt the wicket was flat and if we could stay till the end, the match could go close. So we were trying to contribute as much as possible and take the match to the end. Jadeja had told me that if you get a boundary ball hit it. Otherwise, take singles or doubles, try to keep patience and we can take the game to the end.” IANSAlso Read: East Bengal lose to Aizawl at Kalyani Municipality StadiumAlso Watch: Kokrajhar District BJP workers carried out cleanliness drivelast_img read more

Dortmund Hit with Injury Woes ahead of Monaco Clash

first_imgThe Dortmund boss has a mounting injury list and is rushing to get the likes of Japan midfielder Shinji Kagawa, winger Andre Schuerrle, midfielder Julian Weigl and defender Lukasz Piszczek fit.The quartet all sat out Dortmund’s 4-1 thumping at Bayern Munich in the Bundesliga on Saturday.“There will be players coming back, we don’t know in what condition they will be in, but we need them with strength, form and energy,” added Tuchel.At least chief playmaker Marco Reus returned to training on Sunday after a month sidelined by a hamstring injury and could be an option.Even an appearance off the bench would boost the hosts’ chances in what is likely to be a high-tempo clash between two teams who like to attack.Monaco fully deserve their last-eight berth having seen off Pep Guardiola’s Manchester City with a stunning 3-1 second-leg win at home to progress on away goals after losing 5-3 in England.The French league leaders — who score on average nearly three goals a game in Ligue 1 — have problems of their own with right-back Djibril Sidibe set to miss out after being hospitalised with an appendicitis over the weekend.Highly rated defensive midfielder Tiemoue Bakayoko is suspended, meaning Joao Moutinho should start in central midfield.Despite their injury woes Dortmund are confident of beating Monaco over two legs to reach the Champions League semi-finals for the first time in four years, when they lost the 2013 final to Bayern Munich in London.Dortmund have lost just one of their last 12 home games in Europe and Signal Iduna Park will be rocking.“We’re in the quarter-finals but we know we’re facing a very difficult opponent,” said Dortmund captain Marcel Schmelzer.“Even if we beat Monaco we still can’t speak about winning the Champions League because there will be other strong teams still in the competition.”Dortmund top-scorer Pierre-Emerick Aubameyang, who has hit seven Champions League goals this season in a haul of 32 in all competitions, will be looking to remind Monaco what they missed out on.The French side allowed the Gabon striker to slip through their grasp during a loan spell in 2010/11.Monaco are enjoying a stellar season and their free-flowing attack has so far netted more than 130 goals in all competitions.The only blip was their 4-1 mauling by Paris Saint-Germain in the French League Cup final at the start of April.Monaco squeezed past Angers on Saturday with a 1-0 win as Radamel Falcao scored his 25th goal of the season.He is set to partner rising star Kylian Mbappe, 18, up front.Monaco coach Leonardo Jardim is concerned about the short turnaround in a busy — and pivotal — month for his exciting, young side.CHAMPIONS LEAGUE Q’FINALS TUESDAY 8.45pmJuventus v BarcelonaDortmund v MonacoWEDNESDAYBayern v R’MadridAtletico v LeicesterShare this:FacebookRedditTwitterPrintPinterestEmailWhatsAppSkypeLinkedInTumblrPocketTelegram CHAMPIONS LEAGUEBorussia Dortmund coach Thomas Tuchel has serious personnel problems to resolve as they prepare to host free-scoring Monaco in today’s UEFA Champions League quarter-final first leg.

Syracuse’s press defense crumbles in national championship game loss to Connecticut

first_imgHillsman called timeout after his own team’s made shots to set the defense and the press, guard Maggie Morrison said. But even that didn’t make a difference.UConn’s 17 turnovers were mostly in the half court. Syracuse’s seven steals were almost half of the team’s season average.The scrappy and chaotic presence it’s used to take down high-profile teams like No. 1 seed South Carolina never showed.After the game, associate head coach Vonn Read, the Xs and Os mastermind who designs each one of Syracuse’s presses, stood outside the locker room door with a solemn expression on his face.On Monday, Read said he wished he had some new scheme that he could pull out in the national title game to take the Huskies by surprise. Unfortunately for the Orange, it had already shown everything it had: the zones presses, the man presses and everything in between.“We are who we are,” he said.Who Syracuse is, is second best. Comments INDIANAPOLIS — Connecticut point guard Moriah Jefferson hesitated to size up the Syracuse defense. She took one step left, one step right and other back to the left to split a triple team of Alexis Peterson, Brittney Sykes and Cornelia Fondren that tried to trap her in front of the half-court line.As she sped past, the trio turned to watch the Huskies hit an easy layup just seconds later. Peterson had jogged partway back into the defensive zone before stopping to hunch over and take several deep breaths.“Just dribbling through and attacking and that’s what you have to do with the press,” Syracuse guard Fondren said of what UConn did well. “And we kind of struggled with our press today.”The Orange lives and dies by its ability to press and turn other teams over. In the national championship game on Tuesday, No. 4 seed Syracuse (30-8, 13-3 Atlantic Coast) died a tragic death, falling to No. 1 seed Connecticut (38-0, 18-0 American Athletic), 82-51, at Bankers Life Fieldhouse in Indianapolis. Syracuse’s full-court pressure created no turnovers in the first half. A team that forced the most turnovers in the country and averaged nearly 13 steals per game never found its true form.UConn was unlike any team that Syracuse had faced before. It was long, quick and had an unparalleled ability to pass the ball down the court, which contributed to 22 assists on 28 made shots and a whopping 399 passes compared to SU’s 165. The Orange players were more likely to be chasing after a Huskies player running down the court than to have stopped one in a trap.AdvertisementThis is placeholder textConnecticut came away with its record fourth-straight national championship and 11th overall.“They’re a great team, well coached and they have a lot of great players,” guard Brianna Butler said. “They were just able to do the little things whether it be dribble past or pass ahead. We just weren’t able to react as well as we have been all season.”MORE COVERAGE:Gallery: Check out the best sights from the national championship gameSyracuse’s magical season falls one win short of the ultimate prize3 takeaways from SU’s loss to UConn in the title game Evan Jenkins | Staff Photographer Published on April 6, 2016 at 1:43 am Contact Jon: jrmettus@syr.edu | @jmettus Facebook Twitter Google+ Jefferson dribbled through Syracuse’s man-to-man press with ease, often finishing with simple layups. When she couldn’t get through the zone pressure sets on her own, she’d loft a high pass to 6-foot-4 Breanna Stewart who’d be stationed near half court. Consistently, in three passes, the Huskies would be on the other end of the floor for a score.Just once in the first half the Orange decided not to press. On the next play, Syracuse came back with the pressure causing Stewart to take a timeout when she found no one to inbound to. It was the press’ best result through the first 20 minutes.It didn’t help that Syracuse shot just 25 percent, limiting its chances to press effectively.“We have a press package off missed shots, but it’s so unsettled, “ Syracuse head coach Quentin Hillsman said. “It’s a long, athletic team, that they can pass the ball up the floor.”There was a bright spot in the third quarter. Fondren swatted down a pass at half court on one play and Bria Day intercepted a cross-court heave the next. All of a sudden, the Orange found itself on a 16-0 run that cut the Huskies’ lead to 17.Syracuse switched from the man-to-man back to the 1-2-2 press and it was temporarily working.“It looked like we were playing our game,” Butler said. “Unfortunately, we weren’t able to play like that the whole 40 minutes.” Related Stories Syracuse’s magical run falls 1 game short of title in 82-51 loss to Connecticut3 takeaways from Syracuse’s 82-51 national championship loss to ConnecticutStorify: Community supports Syracuse despite 82-51 national championship loss to UConnGallery: Syracuse can’t pull off historic upset over Connecticutlast_img read more

Victory over City Leaves Reds Looking Unstoppable

first_imgAnd this time, there was no mistake as a 3-1 win put them eight points clear of Leicester City and Chelsea and, perhaps more significantly, nine clear of Pep Guardiola’s side.It was a game that lived up to its billing, full of quality, controversy and incident, with the champions playing their full part, but Liverpool will know this result may come to be seen at the decisive moment in their pursuit of that elusive crown.Nothing will be taken for granted – but this is now Liverpool’s title to lose.If the Reds do not win it this season, given their form, focus and current advantage, they will never forgive themselves. Yes, it is only November, but only one team can deny Liverpool from here: themselves.Leicester will have a say. Chelsea will have a say. Manchester City will have a say – but everything we have seen from Liverpool this season, accompanied by an astounding sequence of only one loss in 51 league games, screams that Klopp and his players will have the final word.City and their enraged manager Guardiola will have pulled out of Anfield nursing a sense of grievance that an early penalty claim against Trent Alexander-Arnold was ignored, an emotion exacerbated by Liverpool sweeping to the other end in seconds to score through Fabinho.The Spaniard clearly felt City were on the wrong end of the key decisions and he was correct to outline how well his team played, but there is a ruthlessness, relentless and a surging energy about Liverpool that makes it difficult to see how it can possibly go wrong for them from here.Liverpool benefited from their opponents being stripped of injured goalkeeper Ederson and midfield influence David Silva, but if you give Klopp and his team an inch, then a mile is the very least they will take.For all City’s excellence and threat in possession, Liverpool knew where the soft underbelly lay and were able to probe – with inevitable results.City, with the benefit of hindsight and without Aymeric Laporte, have been left under-manned in central defence after the failure to replace Vincent Kompany. The injury to Ederson could not have come at a worse time.Ederson’s replacement Claudio Bravo was not to blame for Liverpool’s first two goals, although he was indecisive for Sadio Mané’s third. The 36-year-old Chilean, however, simply does not possess Ederson’s quality and authority, not just as a goalkeeper but as a key component in City’s playing style with the ball at his feet.Anfield has also been nothing but a theatre of pain for Guardiola since he arrived in England – and for City themselves over a much longer period – so this was the wrong time and wrong place for them to reignite their faltering title prospects.Liverpool are unbeaten in their past 17 home Premier League games against City, winning 12, since losing 2-1 in May 2003. Guardiola has lost eight matches in all competitions against Klopp, three more than he has against any other manager.This was Liverpool’s day and there was a sense – despite all City’s efforts – that this was their victory from the moment Fabinho’s searing sixth-minute drive flew beyond Bravo’s outstretched right hand.Klopp is perfectly right to warn against getting carried away. It is not, though, getting carried away when announcing it will take an uncharacteristic Liverpool collapse to deny them the title this time, even after only 12 games.The Reds have won 11 of their first 12 Premier League games, and only Manchester United have had a bigger lead than eight points at this stage of the season, when they won the title in 1993-94.Klopp’s side have won 24 and drawn two of their past 26 home games, with victories in 18 of their past 25 away from Anfield. They have won 42 and drawn eight of their past 51 league games, slipping up just once on that night at Etihad Stadium in January.The Americans use the old phrase “The Big Mo” to colourfully describe the sort of run Liverpool are on – the time when a team or an individual picks up such momentum that nothing can derail them.Liverpool have that look about them. They look energised despite their intense, physical style and they have game-changers in all areas.They look like the complete team. There is no obvious weakness.Liverpool will of course be pursued by the three teams behind them – but you simply cannot make a convincing case that anyone will catch them.Share this:FacebookRedditTwitterPrintPinterestEmailWhatsAppSkypeLinkedInTumblrPocketTelegram Liverpool’s confidence and self-belief has been gathering momentum throughout manager Jürgen Klopp’s remarkable rejuvenation, but Sunday’s victory over reigning Premier League champions Manchester City may just be the moment when they began to feel unstoppable  When Liverpool last had the opportunity to overcome City, when victory at Etihad Stadium in January could have given them a 10-point lead at the top of the table, they slipped to a defeat which in the final reckoning cost them the title.This was the day when Liverpool could make the statement loud and clear that they were in no mood to be denied, and that their wait for a title will not stretch beyond 30 years.last_img read more

Team Endpoint to leave the Gfinity Elite Series

first_imgTeam Endpoint has announced that it will no longer be competing in the Gfinity Elite Series, following Gfinty’s decision not to renew the organisation’s franchise contract for 2018. The decision will see Endpoint drop their Street Fighter V team and although unrelated, Rocket League player Shakahron has also departed the team. The blog post from Endpoint suggests that the organisation will continue to focus mainly on Rocket League, for which it finished 3rd in the RLRS last season. The ultimate aim for any Rocket League team is to reach the RLCS division and they weren’t far off last season. Endpoint were also crowned the champions of the first season of the Elite Series Rocket League.With no information yet other than the fact we know the Elite Series has expanded to ten teams, we can expect a new franchise to enter the league at some point soon. Thus far we’ve seen both Vitality and Fnatic pick up spots which are both significant names in the world of esports. Whether it marks a move away from more grassroots UK esports organisations being picked up towards the global elite remains to be seen.The third season of the Elite Series will see FIFA 18 take the place of Counter-Strike: Global Offensive which although may not be well received by esports purists, certainly will be easier to package and market towards traditional broadcasters. With previous deals with the likes of ESPN, BBC and Eleven this is something that seems a priority from the Gfinity side of things. Simply put, terrorists shooting counter-terrorists is understandably more difficult to sell to broadcasters than the likes of Rocket League and FIFA which are friendly for all ages.Esports Insider says: As one team leaves, another will likely emerge. It’ll be interesting to see who makes up the full roster of the Elite Series as we head towards Season 3. With Australian expansion as well, Gfinity are a company to keep an eye on for the remainder of the year.last_img read more
