Fruity yard makes life all the merrier at Redlynch Valley home

first_img1 McColl Cl, Redlynch is on the market.SET high in Redlynch Valley, surrounded by trees bearing mangoes, lychees, grapefruit, lemons, avocados, starfruit, cumquat, tamarind, cacao and Kaffir lime, if ever there was a definition of a tropical residential paradise, this would be it.The home features large entertainment areas.Krystyna and Edward Piorkowski have tended the garden, built a smokehouse and constantly churned deliciously fresh Polish cuisine out of the kitchen of their stunning McColl Cl home of 10 years.But in the later years of life they have decided to downgrade to a smaller place.“We are so high up in the forest, the view from the house is magnificent and uninterrupted,” Mr Piorkowski said.“The slope of the hill is connected with the jungle and none of the neighbours have built the fence so the free access from the backyard to the rainforest brings echidnas and wallabies into our yard. There is a beautiful view from the master bedroom and the living room. It is the same from the patio and we have absolute privacy.”The new kitchen is a buyer’s dream.Cairns Property Office’s Shane Trimby said the price tag, which is less than $800,000, offered so much to buyers.More from newsCairns home ticks popular internet search terms3 days agoTen auction results from ‘active’ weekend in Cairns3 days agoTwo of the three bedrooms have walk-in robes while a stunning master bedroom opens on to a patio with stunning views, a walk-in robe, ensuite with large shower and separate toilet.“Entertain with homemade goodies made in a chef’s kitchen complete with stone benchtops, a dishwasher, gas cooking, a large oven, plenty of cupboards, a large pantry a full breakfast bar,” Mr Trimby said.“The main living opens on to two large shaded patio areas complete with views of the pool, surrounding mountains and gardens.“Perfectly situated on the 1.778sq m block and elevated so it catches the cooling valley breezes and takes in the stunning mountain back drop – plus, it is a gardener’s paradise.“There is also plenty of space to park boats and caravans and room for a shed if needed.”The saltwater pool has a beautiful water feature.The saltwater pool comes with a fully plumbed outdoor shower and there is a custom-made three-quarter front door.The house is fully tiled, with high ceilings and Crimsafe security.The property has more than doubled in price since it was last sold in 2008.last_img read more

Vessel Calls from Oakland to Southeast Asia Up by 50 Pct

first_imgThe Port of Oakland has assumed a more prominent role in Southeast Asian trade, the port’s executive director Chris Lytle said, announcing that direct vessel calls from Oakland to Southeast Asia have risen by 50 percent this spring.Namely, direct weekly vessel calls to Southeast Asia have risen from 10-to-15 since April 1. Further highlights that prompted the increase in the number of vessel calls include the first direct vessel service between Oakland and Jakarta, an increase from 2-to-4 weekly voyages linking Oakland with the Port of Laem Chabang near Bangkok; and an added weekly Singapore call enabling more cargo to be transported from nearby Cambodia to Oakland.“Southeast Asia is a dynamic region with significant export potential and increasing demand for U.S. products,” Lytle said. “It’s imperative that we position ourselves to serve this market.”Lytle further added that Oakland’s growing Southeast Asian presence coincides with changes to shipping line alliances. Eleven leading ocean carriers realigned in April, sharing vessel services to control costs. One outgrowth of their restructuring was heightened emphasis on Oakland-Southeast Asia trade.Shipping lines have been drawn to Southeast Asia due to shifting trade patterns, Lytle said. The region has grown as a manufacturing center for U.S. markets, he pointed out.  Meanwhile its growing middle class populations have increased demand for U.S. products. The result is an uptick in two-way trade, which should translate to more business for ocean carriers.”The Port of Oakland, and the state of California more broadly, play a critical role in the United States’ economic relationship with Southeast Asia,” said Alexander Feldman, President and CEO of the US-ASEAN Business Council. “California is the largest U.S. exporter to Southeast Asia, with almost USD 16 billion in exports just last year, supporting over 87,000 jobs.”The two-way trade between the U.S. and Southeast Asia last year totaled USD 273 billion, Feldman said.last_img read more

Dare will surpass expectations in sports — Oyewumi

first_imgRelatedPosts Oyo: Only 7,000 out of 67,000 applicants for teaching job scored 50% in CBT Makinde: Alternative Project Funding Approach working for Oyo State Makinde installs new Alamodu of Ago-Amodu Former Special Adviser to Oyo State Governor, Prince Kunle Oyewumi, has applauded the Minister of Sports and Youth Development, Sunday Dare, for taking bold steps in advancing the cause of sports in Nigeria.Acknowledging the pragmatic strategies put in place by the helmsman in the Ministry of Sports and Youth Development, Oyewumi described the efforts of Dare as not surprising, owing to the Minister’s antecedents in the public and private spheres of life. According to Oyewumi, the relocation of the Minister’s office from the Federal Secretariat, Abuja to Moshood Abiola National Stadium, Abuja; appointment of seasoned sports administrator and award-winning athlete, Mary Onyali-Omagbemi, as aide, ongoing tour of sports facilities across the country; and periodic engagements with sports stakeholders and youth ambassadors are good strides on the part of the Minister. Speaking at a roundtable event organized by a group of young professionals at the weekend in Lagos, Oyewumi, who is also a public administrator, stressed the imperative of developing sports and youths for the sake of sustainable development.He said: “The appointment of Mr. Sunday Dare as Minister of Sports and Youth Development was well received across board.“Nigerian youths are blessed with skills and as such with the right strategy, the best of the youth will be easily explored.“Sports is a tool for image building, national cohesion and unity.“Government at all levels should commit adequate resources to bring out the talents in Nigerian youths.“The youth are willing to support the efforts of the government in transforming the nation to a better place.“Collectively, we must join hands with other stakeholders to build a prosperous country.”While advocating private sector participation in sports development, Oyewumi urged prominent Nigerians to support government’s drive to revive abandoned sports facilities across the country in the interest of nation building.The public administrator urged the Minister to embrace other sports like karate, wrestling, hockey, swimming, cricket, baseball, table tennis, basketball, badminton and chess as a way of harnessing the opportunities in sports, adding that football is not the only sport in Nigeria and beyond.Oyewumi, while encouraging sports stakeholders to join hands with the Federal Government in developing and promoting sporting activities at the grassroots, stressed  that Nigeria was blessed with human capital.

Road warriors head to Indiana

first_imgBRYAN FAUST/Herald file photoMany years ago, Wisconsin head coach Bo Ryan had a little bit of a rivalry with Indiana’s Kelvin Sampson. However, the clashes weren’t on a basketball court, but on one for racquetball back at the 1993 Olympic Festival.”We used to be old racquetball combatants,” said Sampson, the first-year head coach of the Hoosiers. “You can ask Bo about how that went.””Kelvin Sampson is (better) by far; I don’t think there’s any coach in America that could beat Kelvin Sampson in racquetball. He’s the best,” said Ryan, who added that his one racquetball win at the Festival was a defeat of Rick Barry’s pregnant wife.Ryan will have the opportunity to avenge his racquetball shortcomings against Sampson tonight, as No. 2 Wisconsin (21-1, 7-0 Big Ten) takes on Indiana (15-5, 5-2 Big Ten) in Bloomington. For the Badgers to do so, they will have to continue the tremendous road play that has characterized the team this season. At 5-0 in true road games (the Badgers’ lone loss came to Missouri State on a neutral court), Wisconsin and Virginia Commonwealth are the only teams in the nation to have not lost on another team’s home floor.Playing well away from the Kohl Center has been a focal point for the team thus far, especially in light of the road struggles a year ago, when the team stumbled to a 2-8 record away from Madison. “I think we are definitely more focused; we are playing as a team,” senior point guard Kammron Taylor said. “I think we have to bring even more energy when we are on the road because we are just out there by ourselves. We have to be even more intense.”Wisconsin’s experience and reinforced concentration for road contests will be tested again, as the Badgers travel to one of the Big Ten’s more storied and historically difficult venues to play in: Assembly Hall. UW players expressed that they are looking forward to playing at the celebrated arena.”I think it’s exciting. Indiana, what more can you say? It’s a great basketball program and to play in that gym is going to be fun,” said sophomore Joe Krabbenhoft, who was quick to point out that the experience would be marred with a loss. “But I don’t think I’ll be smiling so much if we don’t come out of there with a win.”In fact, according to Krabbenhoft, the team has embraced playing on the road in general, which could explain the outstanding success so far this season.”I love playing on the road. Being an underdog, going in with only 15 guys and a coaching staff, us against the world sort of,” Krabbenhoft said. “We kind of like that feeling, and we thrive on it.”The Hoosiers, however, provide challenges greater than their building. Depending on what statistics you use, the team could be the Big Ten’s top offense. The Hoosiers average 72.3 points a game, good for third best in the Big Ten, but average a league-best 1.16 points per possession in Big Ten play. Wisconsin, by comparison, averages 1.07, good for fifth in the conference.The biggest reason for Indiana’s scoring prowess has been its proficiency from beyond the arc, where the Hoosiers shoot a league-best 38 percent. However, that isn’t to say that the Hoosiers are a perimeter team, as they sport one of the Big Ten’s most seasoned and effective post players in junior D.J. White, who is averaging 14.2 points and 7.2 rebounds this season.”They are shooting the three so well, and a lot of that is D.J. White has been drawing a lot more attention,” UW senior forward Alando Tucker said. “He adds the extra inside presence where you have to respect that, and it opens up the three-point shots.”The Badgers, who sport the conference’s best two-point field goal defense by a vast margin at 41.4 percent, will likely look to play to their strength and shut down the Hoosiers from the inside out.”D.J. White is a premier big man in the country, let alone the Big Ten, so a lot of focus is going to be on him,” Krabbenhoft said. “But they have eight, nine or 10 guys who can really light it up.” Among Indiana’s other offensive threats are Roderick Wilmont (11.5 PPG), A.J. Ratliff (39 percent three-point shooter) and Armon Bassett (42 percent three-point shooter). The Badgers seem prepared to face an Indiana team unlike any they have played in their careers under a new scheme and regime.”We have to erase from our minds what they did last year,” Krabbenhoft said. “I guess you can look at it like a non-conference game,” Taylor added.last_img read more

Three takeaways from Toronto Maple Leafs’ shootout loss to Philadelphia Flyers

first_imgHere are three takeaways from the loss, which still saw the Maple Leafs escape Air Canada Centre with a point.SN MAILBAG: Taylor Hall, John Carlson and the 2020 NHL DraftWilliam Nylander staying hotAfter a disappointing 2018-19 where Nylander had just seven goals and 27 points in 54 games following a contract holdout to start the year, the 23-year-old is turning a new leaf this season and showing that he is worth the $6.962 million AAV he’s making with Toronto.Nylander scored the game-tying goal on Saturday about four minutes into the third period, tapping in a Michigan-esque pass from Matthews. He also assisted on Dermott’s goal earlier on in the game to rack up his second multi-point performance over his last three games.WILLIAM NYLANDER 🚨Did Auston Matthews just fake the lacrosse to get Willy the easy tap in? Holy shit.— Flintor (@TheFlintor) November 10, 2019Not only that, but the 6-0, 196-pound center scored the Leafs’ lone shootout tally, showing off impressive dekes, patience and scoring prowess to give Toronto a shot at victory.What a deke by Nylander in the shootout. #LeafsForever— Maple Leafs Hotstove (@LeafsNews) November 10, 2019With five goals and 13 points through 17 games this season, Nylander is on pace to net 24 goals and 63 points, showing that he’s ready to put up the numbers that he’s been expected to and to continue trending in the right direction.The Calgary, Alta. native has now recorded a point in three of his last five games, racking up a total of five points over that span.Frederik Andersen comes up bigAlthough Andersen couldn’t shut down the Flyers in the shootout, he was one of the reasons that the Leafs managed a point out of their matchup with Philly.After giving up two goals on eight shots in the first period, the Danish netminder was a force to be reckoned with for the remainder of the night, able to shut the Flyers out for the final 40 minutes of play.Displaying great awareness, vision, lateral movement and reaction time, Andersen shut down a number of chances and stopped the remaining 24 shots he faced over the course of regulation and 3-on-3 OT to keep Toronto in it until the end.Frederik Andersen’s reflexes and sharp movements are unreal.— Josh Tessler (@JoshTessler_) November 10, 2019Through 14 games now, the 30-year-old is 9-2-1 with a 2.62 GAA and .916 save percentage. Prior to this game, he’d won his three last starts and four of his last five. Andersen also hasn’t fallen in regulation since Oct. 10 and is 7-0-2 since then.Auston Matthews shows off skillWith two assists in Saturday’s loss, Matthews was able to extend his point streak to three games and has points in six of his last seven games. ]While the Toronto Maple Leafs didn’t play their best hockey on Saturday, they did manage to overcome a weak start and pull together a strong finish against the Philadelphia Flyers. However, it wasn’t enough, as Toronto fell 3-2 in the shootout to Philadelphia.The Leafs trailed 2-0 after 20, but they got two goals over the final 40 minutes: one from Travis Dermott in the second and another from William Nylander near the start of the third. Auston Matthews finished the night with two assists, while Frederik Andersen made 30 saves. And of course, the 22-year-old was able to contribute in style on Saturday. His first point came on a secondary assist, which helped the Leafs get into the zone and Dermott cut the lead in half in the second. But it was his second — a primary assist — that took over highlight reels.”The Michigan” is being attempted more and more after Carolina Hurricanes forward Andrei Svechnikov became the first NHLer to ever score on the attempt. Matthews looked as if he was going to try to score the lacrosse-style goal against Philadelphia. Instead, he snuck an impressive pass to Nylander, who was able to put it past Brian Elliott to tie the game up, 2-2.Auston Matthews definitely faked the Michigan to get the pass to William Nylander, which might actually be more impressive than actually pulling off the Michigan 🤷🏽‍♂️ #LeafsForever— Vinnie Parise (@VinnieParise) November 10, 2019Matthews now has 13 goals and 21 points on the season, which ranks him tied for eighth among all NHL skaters. No. 34 and is producing 1.17 points per game.last_img read more

So thank you Mike and thank you Todd! We come from seven eighths, we knew we were going to be close.“I knew the pace would be fast early and I just wanted to stay close. He broke very well and we settled in there. When it was time to go, we knew we had to engage Joel (Rosario) to play the game because he was the horse to beat.  And we got the job done. Vino Rosso seemed to have it all put together today.”JOEL ROSARIO, GIFT BOX, SECOND: “He broke well out of there. In the beginning, they all got into position and I thought I was in a good spot. I guess he was just second best today. I used him a little in the beginning to get my spot but he settled and was very comfortable after that. Everything he did was just right, he just got a little tired in the end.“I still think he’s one of the best handicap horses in the country and he’ll improve off of this. I had the trip I wanted, the other horse just ran a better race today.”TRAINER QUOTESAMY MULLEN, ASSISTANT TRAINER TO TODD PLETCHER, WINNER:  “I didn’t have to give John any instructions, just a leg up. John got here six hours ago and he had a conference call with the owners and Todd. I’ve been here a week with Vino Rosso and Mike McCarthy, we trained over the track to get ready for this race.”TOM AMOSS, TRAINER OF LONE SAILOR, THIRD:  “He was a little farther back than I wanted, but I was happy with what I was seeing up front. I knew at the three eighths (pole) he wouldn’t be able to catch the leaders.”NOTES: The winning owners are Repole Stable & St. Elias Stable.last_img read more
