It takes 3 years for Cairns residents to save for a home

September 28, 2020

first_imgFinder.com.au spokeswoman Bessie HassanCAIRNS home buyers take about two years’ less to save for a home deposit than in other areas of the state such as Noosa and the Gold Coast.Saving a deposit in southern regional centres can still take first home buyers up to five years, but in Cairns, aspiring investors can be in their own home within 3.3 years.According to money expert, Bessie Hassan of finder.com.au, who has crunched the numbers using average income and median house prices, those who decide their first home will be in Noosa will be saving for on average 5.8 years to get a 20 per cent deposit together.The Gold Coast, 4.9 years, and the Sunshine Coast, 4.8 years, were not far behind.Ms Hassan said those coastal markets were highly populated tourists areas so it was not surprising that they had a higher property price tag and therefore a longer deposit-saving time compared to other precincts within regional Queensland.The research revealed home buyers who can get in the market the quickest where those buying in the Central Highlands, Mackay and Townsville.Ms Hassan said the quicker time to save a deposit was largely due to the lower average house prices in these regions.More from newsCairns home ticks popular internet search terms2 days agoTen auction results from ‘active’ weekend in Cairns2 days ago“If you’re saving for a deposit, check out local property prices in the area and work out what you’ll need for a deposit. Remember, you should aim for at least a 20 per cent deposit so you can avoid paying mortgage insurance,’’ she said.Ms Hassan said one of the quickest ways to cut spending and increase savings was cutting “luxury items’’ such as food delivery services or travel.“Parking your funds in a high-interest savings account or a term deposit may also help you maximise your return and fast-track your way into the property market,’’ she said.She advised potential first time buyers to run an audit on their financial accounts to see if they could be paying less fess or interest as a way of finding more savings.National data from the Australian Bureau of Statistics showed that the number of finance approvals for first home buyers was now at its highest level in eight years.In Queensland, the number of finance approvals increased by almost 10 per cent.REA Group chief economist Nerida Conisbee said while the number of finance approvals for investors and upgraders had dropped, first home buyers were bucking the trend.“We are now seeing the highest level of first home buyers since 2010,” she said.last_img read more

Dyche bemused by United criticism

September 20, 2020

first_img The jibe came from West Ham boss Sam Allardyce after the 1-1 draw between the sides on Sunday and prompted Louis van Gaal to produce a dossier of statistics at his press conference on Tuesday. Burnley visit Old Trafford on Wednesday, and Dyche will certainly not be making similar comments. Press Association The Clarets boss said: “I find it incredible, the whole thing. “I think back to my youth and a player then who was renowned was Glenn Hoddle. Was he renowned for playing five and 10-yard passes? No he wasn’t. Was Ronald Koeman renowned for playing five and 10-yard passes? He was marvelled at. “I’m looking at Man Utd’s team – I think they’re capable of playing the ball more than five or 10 yards, and probably accurately and probably with some style. “I’m certainly not questioning whether they’re a long-ball side or not. I think it’s a bizarre debate.” The trip to Old Trafford is the start of a formidable run of fixtures for Burnley, who headed into the midweek programme one point above the relegation zone. Over the next two months they also face Chelsea, Liverpool, Manchester City, Tottenham and Arsenal, but Dyche is undaunted. “This is the reality of the league,” he said. “You’ve got to play everyone home and away. How they fall is irrelevant. “It’s the challenge we all wanted. I want it, the players want it, the town wanted it, the club wanted it. You can’t then go, ‘Oh, they’re big games against big clubs’. Yes they are and that’s exactly what we were expecting.” Sean Dyche reacted with incredulity to criticism of Manchester United for being a long-ball team. Burnley’s hopes of surviving the drop were dealt a blow on Tuesday with the news key midfielder Dean Marney will miss the rest of the season after damaging his cruciate knee ligament. The 31-year-old, who has played nearly 200 matches in close to five years at Turf Moor, suffered the injury during Sunday’s 2-2 draw with West Brom. The incident appeared innocuous but scans confirmed Burnley’s worst fears and an unwanted hat-trick. Marney joins defender Kevin Long, who suffered the same injury last month, in the treatment room, while striker Sam Vokes missed the start of the season as he recovered from a ruptured cruciate. Dyche said: “It’s amazing that we’ve had three cruciate injuries in a year and all of them anomalies. Deano thought he might be able to run it off such was his desire to continue. “We feel for Deano and ourselves because he’s done very well over a number of years. We know he’ll get the right support here and him and Longy will be good mates over the next few months.” The timing is especially cruel coming just a week after the end of the January transfer window, during which Dyche tried and failed to strengthen his central midfield options. He said: “We had two deals that were agreed and the clubs decided not to do them. Then it’s just an unbelievable turn of events that someone gets such a serious injury a week later. We’ve been light in central midfield for a long time now.” Wednesday’s game, meanwhile, gives defender Michael Keane an early opportunity to return to Old Trafford. The 22-year-old joined Burnley on loan from United in September before making the switch permanent to become Dyche’s only January signing. His last appearance in a United shirt came in the embarrassing 4-0 defeat by MK Dons in August and, with the boot now on the other foot, he is hoping it will be another uncomfortable evening for Van Gaal. Keane said: “I’m really looking forward to it. I was there for ages and I’ve got a lot of friends there, a lot of people I’m looking forward to seeing, but the main thing is I’m going with Burnley and hoping to get a result. “It was a big decision to leave. When I first came here on loan I would have got games there so I was a bit gutted and disappointed. “When I made myself permanent at Burnley, while I was really happy I had the opportunity to do that, there is a little bit of you that’s disappointed you haven’t made it at United. “But it’s something I’ve moved on from now and I’m just looking ahead.” last_img read more

The Latest: Olympic postponement delayed by govt guidelines

Bach says “we were in line with these developments” until World Health Organization leaders said Monday the coronavirus pandemic is accelerating.Bach and the International Olympic Committee faced mounting criticism from athletes last week for publicly supporting holding the Tokyo Games in July and August.Bach was asked on a conference call why the postponement decision came only after much of the world was in lockdown. He says “we could not see (government) measures being taken lasting until July.”___Premier League teams Brighton and Bournemouth have become the first clubs to sign up to a campaign to make 100,000 free soccer tickets available to medical workers on the front line during the coronavirus outbreak.

GOtv Boxing Night 20: Fans Tip Winner of Joe Boy, Real…

September 17, 2020

first_imgAhead of the African Boxing Union (ABU) lightweight title bout, boxing fans have been giving their opinions on who they think will triumph between reigning champion, Oto “Joe Boy” Joseph, and West African Boxing Union (WABU) champion, Rilwan “Real One” Oladosu.The bout, which headlines GOtv Boxing Night 20 slated for 12 October at the Indoor Sports Hall of the National Stadium in Lagos, is widely rated as the biggest boxing bout on Nigerian soil in more than two decades, the reason it has provoked enormous interest among boxing fans who have taken to the social media to express their views.Both boxers remain undefeated since turning professional and are currently involved in a long-running war of words which, on four occasions, saw them being pulled apart to prevent an exchange of bare-knuckled punches. The rivalry dates back to their amateur days, during which they were said to be the best of the crop and view each other with no little degree of sporting animosity. A boxing fan, Moses Adejoh Mansa, believes that Joe Boy is a better boxer and will retain his title.“Joe Boy all the way. Any day. Any time,” he posted on a Facebook thread on the coming bout. Sharing the same sentiment is another fan, who identifies himself simply as Adeola. He is convinced that the ABU champion is more skillful and will win the fight.However, many others are rooting for Real One. Adetokun Abayomi Mike, for instance, admits that both boxers are very good, but tipped Real One to carry the day. “I go for Real One. I know both boxers well, but power will change hands on that day,” he wrote. He found many others agreeing with his sentiment, with Oluwatobi Sunday, Martins Abiola and Oladunjoye Lateef Olawale both posting “Real One all the way.”To others, the fight is too close to call. Rising lightweight boxer, Isaac “I-Star” Chukwudi, is torn between the two boxers, who he described as his favourites on the domestic scene. He stated that if it was up to him, he would prefer that they do not meet at this stage in their careers.“I never wanted this fight to happen now because both are the best we have in Nigeria. I was hoping that Joe Boy would vacate the ABU title for Real One, while he goes after a bigger title. I don’t want either to lose,” he said with barely disguised regret that they two have been paired.Another Facebook user, Zeezo Reezo, is similarly in two minds and just wants to see the better boxer win. “Real One is good, but Joe Boy is a good puncher, so let the better man win,” he wrote.Joe Boy, a three-time winner of the best boxer award at GOtv Boxing Night, is facing arguably his toughest opponent yet in Real One, who has also won the award on two occasions.Share this:FacebookRedditTwitterPrintPinterestEmailWhatsAppSkypeLinkedInTumblrPocketTelegramlast_img read more

Strong medicine: With arrival of head coach Strong, UL defense evolves into one of Big East’s best

September 17, 2020

first_img Facebook Twitter Google+ Comments Published on November 3, 2010 at 12:00 pmcenter_img Doug Beaumont knew from the very first team meeting of the year that new head coach Charlie Strong was ready to turn around a sagging Louisville program. Before spring practices started, before he had gotten to know his players, Strong sent his team a message in that first meeting. A message that the senior wide receiver Beaumont said was not delivered in the kindest of tones. It was a message, Beaumont said, that showed the Louisville football team that Strong was there to turn things around. He demanded respect from his players. And he got it immediately. ‘He told us from the get-go what he’s expecting, what he’s going to do,’ Beaumont said. ‘And it showed us that it’s not time to play around no more, and we just have to respect him. He got his trust right away. And from then on, he kept his trust. ‘My first impression was he was the real deal.’AdvertisementThis is placeholder text Strong has eased off that intensity slightly as he has built a rapport with his players. But come Saturdays, the passion works its way back into the first-year head coach’s demeanor. As the former Florida defensive coordinator, he was brought to Louisville to improve that side of the football, where the Cardinals (4-4, 1-2 Big East) finished 65th in the nation last year. And that improvement has already emerged in Louisville’s play this year. Strong and the Cardinals’ No. 22-ranked defense will be on display when they take on Syracuse (6-2, 3-1) Saturday at noon in the Carrier Dome. ‘It’s a big turnaround, you can just tell,’ Beaumont said. ‘The defense is more motivated to get to the ball fast, play hard. … They have great execution planned from Coach Strong and the defensive staff.’ Just a year ago, Louisville struggled to keep teams out of the end zone, a major contributor to its 4-8 season. The defense allowed 26.3 points per game, a number that bumped up to 32.5 per game in the Cardinals’ eight losses. Their pass rush mustered just 23 sacks through those 12 games, and the run defense ranked No. 84 in the country. Enter Strong. He served as Florida’s defensive coordinator from 2003 to 2009 and won two national championships with the Gators. After accepting the new position at Louisville, he completely revamped the entire coaching staff — offense included. He brought Vance Bedford with him from Florida to serve as defensive coordinator and added position coaches from all over the country on both sides of the ball. With all the changes have come improvements, especially in Strong’s area of expertise. The defense has shaved a full touchdown off its points-allowed average from a year ago. It already has 20 sacks through its first eight games, and its pass defense ranks No. 13 in the nation. The Cardinals have even pitched two shutouts already this year in wins against Memphis and Connecticut. Strong said it starts with defensive line play. ‘It’s important that you play well up front,’ he said. ‘Especially on the defensive front, because if you can’t stop anybody from running the ball, then you don’t even get a chance to rush the passer. So it’s critical that we get going there, that we play very well up front.’ But what makes Strong different from other coaches is not his talent with X’s and O’s. Florida head coach Urban Meyer, who Strong served under while with the Gators, said last offseason that it was his skills off the field that separate him from others. ‘A lot of times, you may not be the best schematic coach, which I think (Strong is) very good,’ Meyer told reporters. ‘But the thing that makes Charlie such a special guy is the fact that he has impeccable character and is a great leader.’ The Cardinal players have taken notice of their coach’s intangibles as well. Beaumont said the coach can command respect and express his passion one day, like he did in that first team meeting, but can also keep things light-hearted. He has maintained trust and respect from his players by developing relationships with them. He jokes around and laughs with the team when appropriate. But he also comes down on them when he needs to, as he did by benching defensive end Rodney Gnat for the Cardinals’ opening day loss to Kentucky. Strong said the senior didn’t practice well leading up to the game, resulting in his benching. Gnat responded by tallying seven tackles and 4.5 sacks the next week in Louisville’s 23-13 win over Eastern Kentucky. He currently ranks fourth in the Big East with 6.5 sacks on the year. ‘I just think he’s a players’ coach,’ Beaumont said. ‘He can joke around with us. He can fool around with us. He’s a coach that knows how to lead. He has a fun time but, at the same time, knows it’s business and knows that we have to be serious on the game field. ‘And that’s what he’s good at.’ Strong has already initiated the turnaround he was hired to produce. He does delve into the offense to make sure it is prepared for Saturdays, but his heart lies with the defense, where he has already left a mark. He has said he wants to change the mindset of the program. Louisville went to a BCS bowl as recently as 2006 before stumbling to a 15-21 record over the past three years. He sent the message to his team that it was time for a change in that first team meeting. And as Strong’s era has gotten underway, so too has the turnaround for Louisville football. ‘When you look at it, it’s a program that four years ago went to the Orange Bowl,’ Strong said. ‘It hasn’t been to a bowl game in the last three years, so it’s just change the overall attitude of this football team. You had to get them to believe that they can go play. Get them to believe that they can win.’ zjbrown@syr.edulast_img read more

Maradona: Brazil would not have beaten Spain on neutral ground

August 28, 2020

first_imgThe 52-year-old feels the European champions would not have lost to the Selecao without a partisan crowd and feels Lionel Messi is still the world’s best playerArgentina legend Diego Maradona believes that Spain would not have lost the Confederations Cup final against Brazil had the game been played at a neutral venue.The European and world champions were comfortably beaten 3-0 at the Maracana following a double from Fred either side of a Neymar strike and the 52-year-old feels the hostile environment affected Vicente del Bosque’s men.“Spain were unlucky that the tournament was being played in Brazil. They looked promising. Brazil wouldn’t have beaten them had the game been played on neutral ground,” he told reporters.The Napoli icon then went on to praise Lionel Messi and stressed that the Barcelona star is still a cut above Neymar and Cristiano Ronaldo.“Messi remains the best in the world. He is still a better player than Neymar and Cristiano Ronaldo.” Maradona also had his say on the 2014 World Cup and he is hopeful that Argentina can emerge victorious in Brazil.“Next year’s World Cup belongs to South Americans. I hope Argentina will be crowned champions,” he added.“The Argentine Football Association is being run by an incompetent person, though.

This is exactly the type of risk you want to take in GPPs because we know Ryu can be lights out but we also know Coors has gotten the better of elite pitchers many times in the past.C: Tom Murphy, Mariners @ Astros. Murphy has been a good hitter against both LHP and RHP this season, so the split matchup isn’t really a big deal, but the Mariners do face a lefty tonight in Wade Miley, so that makes it more likely that Murphy starts over Omar Narvaez.MORE FRIDAY MLB: SP rankings1B: Howie Kendrick, Nationals @ Tigers. We have the Nats against a lefthanded pitcher, so the usual suspects are going to be in the Playbook today. Kendrick is hitting a robust .381 with an OPS of 1.053 against LHPs on the season.2B: Luis Arraez, Twins @ White Sox. I haven’t really ignored the run Arraez has been on, but I wish I have taken more advantage of it. He has been on fire since his call-up hitting .449. The White Sox are sending Omar Despaigne to the mound, who is basically the human form of batting practice.SS: Fernando Tatis Jr., Padres vs. Cardinals. Michael Wacha is struggling, and Tatis doesn’t care if he is facing a LHP or RHP. It does help his case, however, that eight of his nine home runs this season have come off righties, as have eight of the 11 stolen bases.3B: Maikel Franco, Phillies @ Marlins. The man is on fire right now, hitting .412 with three HRs, four runs and seven RBIs over the past four games.
