We’ve always got people relocating from interstate that are looking for that country lifestyle and we’re still close enough to drive to Brisbane” he said. 2 Brady Street, Dayboro is “ … the best house I’ve seen in Dayboro,” according to its selling agent.There’s something about Dayboro’s rolling hills and broad green expanses that goes beyond local appeal.It’s also striking when someone has built a beautiful new home on one of these lush allotments to create a picture-perfect setting.It’s this sort of green-change scenario that resulted in the sale of 2 Brady Rd, Dayboro on 11th May for $940,000.With 23 years in the business, Michael Flanigan, principal at ME Property Sales, was glowing in his assessment too.“In my opinion, it’s the best house I’ve seen in Dayboro,” he said.The four-bedroom, three-bathroom home has 460sq m of floor space with a crisp, clean colour pallet and a northerly aspect to catch the country sun.The internal finish is high-end too, and with three additional living spaces plus a study, there’s plenty to discover.More from newsLand grab sees 12 Sandstone Lakes homesites sell in a week21 Jun 2020Tropical haven walking distance from the surf9 Oct 2019The finishes are definitely high-endMr Flanigan said the house could also be adapted for dual living, which is great for teenagers, visitors or elderly relatives.The 6005sq m block of land is cleared and flat and the detached shed is fitted out with bathroom and kitchen facilities.last_img read more

Increased patrols for the month of March announced

first_imgBatesville, In. — The Indiana State Police will be joined by local law enforcement this March to increase dangerous and impaired driving patrols for the NCAA Tournament and St. Patrick’s Day.Last year, the weekend beginning St. Patrick’s Day had the highest number crashes involving impaired drivers. Because March 17, 2018 , falls on a Saturday, police are conducting random patrols, saturation patrols and sobriety checkpoints intended to make our roads safer.“This is when we celebrate a time-honoredHoosier tradition, March Madness and basketball,” said Indiana State Police Superintendent Doug Carter. “However if you drink, your plans should include a designated driver, ride sharing program, or taxi to get you home safely from your celebration. Troopers will be out looking for those drivers who fail to heed this advice and will provide another form of transportation to those drivers; but it won’t be to their home.”The top causes of all Indiana traffic crashes are drivers following too closely and failing to yield the right of way. Aggressive, distracted and impaired driving reduce reaction times to unexpected slowed traffic, bicycles and pedestrians.In every state, it is illegal to drive with a blood alcohol concentration of .08 or higher. In Indiana, drivers under 21 with a BAC of .02 are subject to fines and a license suspension for up to 1 year.Last year the Indiana Criminal Justice Institute and National Highway Transportation Safety Administration purchased 1,759 new portable breath tests for Indiana law-enforcement agencies. An additional 836 devices will be purchased this year.But unlike alcohol, there is no quick field test for the legal and illegal drugs that can impair drivers. ICJI and NHTSA are issuing Android tablets and apps to assist 185 highly-trained police officers in the recognition and enforcement of drug-impaired driving.If you’re taking a new drug or higher dose, talk with your doctor or don’t drive until you know how it affects you. Even over-the-counter medication such as cold medicine or sleep aids may cause impairment, especially when combined with alcohol or a second drug.Experience different perspectives on an impaired-driving crash scene in 360 degrees.last_img read more

‘Tyson Fury is No1 in world but Joshua would beat him’

first_img4 The heavyweight kings are set to be given one last hurdle before they can try to unify against each other in a blockbuster fight. Joshua, 30, is mandated by the IBF to defend his belts against 39-year-old Kubrat Pulev, while Deontay Wilder has invoked his right to an immediate rematch against Fury. Wilder twice dropped Fury in their first fight in 2018, but was unable to force the knockout and was fortunate to walk away with a draw. But Bellew reckons Joshua – who was was dubbed a better boxer than Fury by Evander Holyfield – can learn from Wilder’s mistakes and not allow the Gypsy King to get back to his feet. He explained: “Deontay Wilder isn’t technically sound enough to get himself in position to punish Tyson Fury. To take into consideration is Anthony Joshua is an Olympic gold medalist, and he’s technically sound. He’s not the finished article, and he’s still improving. Bellew says Fury is the No1 heavyweight in the world after his win against Deontay Wilder Read Also: FIFA cancels The Best awards for 2020 “He’s so much more of a well-rounded boxer than Deontay Wilder. If Deontay Wilder is able to have the best version of Tyson Fury on the floor and out on his feet, then believe you me, Anthony Joshua will not let him off the hook. “He’s probably the most ruthless finisher in the heavyweight division. “People say, ‘You’re AJ’s friend.’ I’ve known Tyson longer than AJ. So it’s no bias. It’s just me giving my opinion.” FacebookTwitterWhatsAppEmail分享 Tony Bellew has hailed Tyson Fury as the No1 heavyweight in the world – but still backs Anthony Joshua to beat the Gypsy King. The heavyweight champions are neck and neck at the moment with Britain in possession of the four major world title belts. Anthony Joshua has been tipped to beat Tyson Fury by Tony Bellew After Fury, 31, dethroned Deontay Wilder, 34, of the WBC crown in February, it set him up to face WBA, IBF and WBO king AJ in a historic undisputed title decider. And 37-year-old Bellew, who twice beat David Haye at heavyweight, admits the Gypsy King must be recognised as the division’s top dog but still thinks Joshua’s style leads him to victory against his rival. He told told Mark Wright on Instagram Live: “The top three heavyweights today, if you’re going on what they’re actually doing, you can’t really knock Tyson Fury for what he’s doing since he’s come back. I understand why people have him No1. “I have to put Fury No1, but I still think AJ beats him. Styles make fights, and I think AJ’s style is all wrong for Fury. Loading… “I think he would catch Fury. He’s so relentless, so powerful, so athletically explosive and dynamic.

Laliga: Atletico, Real duel in Madrid derby

first_imgRelatedPosts Bale completes Tottenham return from Real Madrid Tottenham sign £25m Sergio Reguilon Live stream Premier League, La Liga, Serie A on Showmax Pro this weekend Atletico vs. Real MadridOne of the most eagerly-anticipated fixtures of the La Liga calendar will take place at the Wanda Metropolitano tonight as Atletico Madrid welcome Real Madrid for the latest instalment of the Madrid derby.Real Madrid have faced criticism this season but top the table with 14 points following their 2-0 win over Osasuna on Wednesday night, while Atletico are second with 13 points heading into Week Seven.Four wins, one draw and one defeat – that is how Atletico have performed in Spain’s top flight this season. A total of 13 points has left them in second spot, trailing leaders Real Madrid by just a single point ahead of what is shaping up to be a very interesting capital derby at the Wanda Metropolitano.Diego Simeone’s side opened their league season with a 1-0 home win over Getafe on August 18, before beating Leganes by the same scoreline one week later. Atletico then made it three from three with a 3-2 home success over Eibar in their last match before the international break.The capital giants were stopped in their tracks on September 14 as they suffered a 2-0 defeat at Real Sociedad, though, before being held to a goalless draw at home by Celta Vigo which allowed a number of clubs to catch up.Wednesday night’s trip to Mallorca was hugely important for a number of reasons, and the capital giants returned to winning ways courtesy of goals from Diego Costa and Joao Felix. A bunched-up league sees Atletico sit just one point off Real Madrid despite only managing seven goals this term.Summer arrival Felix has managed two league goals in six outings, while Alvaro Morata and Costa have one each thus far. The likes of Diego Godin, Juanfran and Filipe Luis are no longer at the club, but Simeone’s side have conceded just four times in their six league outings this season, which is the third-best record in the league.Atletico have also been in Champions League action this season – opening their campaign with a 2-2 draw at home to Juventus on September 18. Bayer Leverkusen and Lokomotiv Moscow are also in the same section, and therefore it would be a surprise if Los Rojiblancos did not make it to the round of 16.In terms of the league, Atletico will travel to Real Valladolid and host Valencia in their two matches either side of the October international break, before finishing the month with games at home to Athletic Bilbao and away to Alaves. Simeone will see the fixture list as winnable, but there are some potential banana skins.It will be the first meeting between Atletico and Real Madrid since the former recorded a stunning 7-3 win during their preparations for the 2019-20 campaign. There was little meaning to the game aside from the embarrassment, but Atletico were far superior during that pre-season clash.For all the criticism that has come Real Madrid’s way in the early stages of the 2019-20 campaign, the capital giants are one of only two teams – the other being Athletic Bilbao – to boast an unbeaten record in La Liga this season. Four wins and two draws have left them top – one point clear of second-placed Atletico and four clear of Barcelona, who are down in fifth following an indifferent start.Los Blancos started their La Liga campaign with an impressive 3-1 win at Celta Vigo, before drawing back-to-back games against Real Valladolid and Villarreal. At that point, questions were being asked, especially as their next win was far from convincing – a 3-2 home success over Levante.Zinedine Zidane’s side then suffered a 3-0 defeat at Paris Saint-Germain in their Champions League group opener. The French champions were without the likes of Kylian Mbappe, Edinson Cavani and Neymar but still managed to run out convincing winners due to a strong performance from Angel Di Maria.Real Madrid travelled to Sevilla last weekend under pressure to pick up a big result and one certainly arrived as they recorded a 1-0 win courtesy of a second-half header from Karim Benzema. It was a huge result in the context of the season, and there is no question that it would have boosted the confidence of the players.Zidane made wholesale changes for Wednesday’s clash with Osasuna, which was a risk considering that the capital outfit have not exactly blown teams away this season. Los Blancos put in a strong performance, though, and goals from Vinicius Junior and Rodrygo Goes secured three important points.The victory over Osasuna moved Real Madrid to the top of the table, and the European giants will now be looking to make it four straight La Liga victories when they travel to the Wanda Metropolitano for unquestionably one of their toughest matches of the season.In terms of what is ahead, the capital giants will host Club Brugge in their next Champions League game on October 1, before welcoming Granada and travelling to Mallorca either side of the international break.Eden Hazard is yet to really ignite at the Bernabeu but injuries have certainly played a part. The Belgium international was left out against Osasuna with the view to making his mark against Atletico, though, and the visitors will need their big-money arrival to impress if they are to pick up a big result this weekend. Atletico Madrid possible XI: Oblak, Trippier, Savic, Gimenez, Lodi, Saul, Thomas, Koke, Vitolo, Costa, Felix.Real Madrid possible XI: Courtois, Carvajal, Ramos, Varane, Nacho, Casemiro, Kroos, Modric, Hazard, Benzema, Bale.Tags: La LigaMadridReal Madridlast_img read more

Enugu sympathises with Rangers over player’s death

Solskjaer speaks on five substitutions as EPL resumes

first_imgRelatedPosts COVID-19: NCAA to revoke erring airlines licence over non-compliance FRSC to Schools: We’ll arrest, prosecute drivers who flout COVID-19 rules Sanwo-Olu: We’re committed to fulfilling promises to Lagosians Increasing the number of substitutions and players on the bench when the Premier League restarts this month is a brilliant idea, according to Manchester United manager Ole Gunnar Solskjaer.The former Manchester United forward said the decision would allow managers to rotate their squads during a congested schedule. The league, suspended since mid-March due to the COVID-19 pandemic, will resume on June 17 after agreeing temporary rule changes to increase substitutes from three to five per game.The number of players allowed on the bench has been put up from seven to nine.“We’ve had time out. So, I don’t think we can expect that those lads who’ve missed lots of the football can last the full game. But now the rules have changed, we can use five subs and have nine on the bench,” Solskjaer told Manchester United’s website.“I think that’s helpful because, after being out for so long, going into competitive games will be a challenge for footballers and we have to look after them injury-wise and fitness-wise.“We can’t just flog one player and say to them: ‘You play every game and every minute,’ because it might be a period when we have to rotate quite often.” Fifth-placed Manchester United face Tottenham Hotspur in their first game back on June 19.Reuters/NAN.Tags: COVID-19Manchester UnitedOle Gunnar SolskjaerPremier Leaguelast_img read more

Friendlies key for O’Neill

first_img His time with the players is limited enough as it is and with the possibility of just three more get togethers before the next batch of competitive fixtures, the trip to Adana takes on plenty of importance. “Games like this are essential,” he said. “The next date is in March and after that there is possibly an opportunity at the end of May with teams preparing for Brazil, we’ll look at options there, so these games are invaluable. “Three friendly games amounts to about nine days with the players, I think that puts into perspective the challenge we face. “I understand some of the clubs have difficulties with them but for us to be able to build and develop a team we have to be able to have all of these fixtures. “It can be difficult at times because you don’t always get the ideal scenario or the ideal fixture but I’d rather come and play the likes of Turkey – a difficult game with an edge to it – than a less meaningful friendly.” Despite the value placed on the clash by O’Neill, Northern Ireland will not be able to call on a full-strength side for the match, with absentees reaching double figures. Chris Brunt, Craig Cathcart, Jamie Ward and Shane Ferguson are among the injured, while Gareth McAuley (personal reasons) and Kyle Lafferty, who is due to become a father for the second time, are also unavailable. The eyes of the football world may be on the likes of Portugal and France this week but Northern Ireland boss Michael O’Neill insists clubs must recognise the importance of friendlies too. Press Association That leaves O’Neill carrying a skeletal 17-man squad, just about acceptable for a friendly but hardly a precedent he would want to repeat. “That’s what we have to choose from. The reality is the next couple of players to be called into the squad would be from League Two,” O’Neill admitted. “Before you look at that level of football, without being disrespectful, you’re essentially looking at a possible squad of about 27 players. “That’s where we are, we have 11 players unavailable to us for one reason or another. “Going forward into the campaign we cannot have that level of unavailability if we’re to have a fighting chance in whatever group we’re in.” One player who has arrived to boost O’Neill’s numbers scene is 27-year-old Jonny Steele. The New York Red Bulls midfielder is set to win his first cap on Friday having scrapped his way to the top in the most unlikely way imaginable. Steele, who played indoor football in the United States to make ends meet before his Major League Soccer breakthrough, will get the chance to stake his claim for further recognition after impressing O’Neill with his determination. “Jonny is a late developer and the path he’s taken to where he is now is not the traditional path,” said the former Shamrock Rovers boss. “He’s played indoor soccer in the States, gone on a season-to-season basis having to make his living, so it’s nice for him to get his opportunity to be part of an international squad on the back of what has been a very good season. “He’s playing in a league which is highly regarded now and for one of the biggest clubs in that league. “He plays with some big name players (including Thierry Henry and Tim Cahill) albeit probably not in their prime. “This last year there has been a real maturity in his game, and in himself, and it’s good to get a chance to work with him first hand.” While some of European football’s top talent – including Cristiano Ronaldo and Zlatan Ibrahimovic – take part in the World Cup play-offs O’Neill’s men will be contesting a lower-key date in Turkey. With neither side having qualified for a place in Brazil and the Euro 2016 campaign not kicking off until next September it is the kind of fixture that may be greeted with groans by club managers, but O’Neill sees it as a crucial part of his planning. last_img read more
