Tommy Bugg to notch up 50 in GWS Giants opener against St Kilda

Written by admin on 05/07/2018 Categories: 苏州美甲美睫培训学校

Defender Tommy Bugg will become the 10th player to celebrate 50 appearances for GWS – and mark his 22nd birthday – when the Giants start their season against St Kilda at Etihad Stadium on Sunday.

Bugg was named in a final 22 coach Leon Cameron described as “really really hard” to pick after a swathe of players made the most of the extended pre-season and competed strongly for starting spots.

High profile recruits Ryan Griffen and Joel Patfull will debut for the club, with Patfull likely to spend most of his time in a crucial contest with Saints captain Nick Riewoldt.

Tom Scully has been named despite an abbreviated pre-season challenge campaign after he injured an ankle in training in February.

Re-signed duo Jeremy Cameron and Devon Smith will start down the ground, while Phil Davis will form part of the Giants’ most experienced defence yet, alongside Heath Shaw and Patfull. Exciting forward Cam McCarthy will start from the interchange.

Bugg – who signed with the Giants as an 17-year-old access selection in 2010 – has earned the coach’s respect as a player who “just gets everything out of himself”.

“Whether it be wing, whether it be back, whether it be playing a negating role, he’s one of those players that just loves to play hard and loves to play the full 120 minutes. He’s really competitive,” Cameron told Giants TV.

“It’s fantastic to see him reach that milestone and hopefully we can celebrate with a win on Sunday.”

Bugg was the sixth player named on the Giants’ list when the club was established. He said it had been “a pretty special journey”.

“To say I’ve been here from the start with a few other boys, to share those kind of memories and this journey so I’ve really appreciated the time that I’ve had so far,” he said.

Written by admin on  Categories: 苏州美甲美睫培训学校

Isobella Morton, Emily Smith and Verenaisi Ratugole from Moruya High School. FAR South Coast high school students are calling on motivated adult mentors to join them in the Youth Frontiers Mentoring Program.

The new program aims to encourage students in years 8 and 9 to participate in their community by creating a civic project of their design and choice.

Youth Frontiers also aims to strengthen teamwork, communication, leadership and decision making skills in young people.

The results of the student’s civic projects will be displayed at a celebratory event in October.

Project officer Amy Kovacs said 18 students from schools across the Far South Coast had already signed up to the program.

“The response has been beyond our expectation,” she said.

“These students are willing to make a real difference in their local community, while picking up valuable life skills and knowledge that can link them with further education and employment outcomes.”

Ms Kovacs said they were looking to recruit, train and support 18 adults who are willing to volunteer to support a student on their project.

“Six volunteerswho are interested, or involved in, youth mental health, sporting engagement, empowerment of young women, community harmony and/or the Centenary of ANZACare needed in Moruya,” she said.

“We also need fourvolunteers in Batemans Bay who are interested in sporting engagement and youth mental health.”

Adult mentors will be required to commit to weekly support and guidance of a student, with some of the mentoring time occurring at the student’s school.

“The overall voluntary commitment will be at least 30 hours over a six month period,” Ms Kovacs said.

“Interested adults aged over 18 years will need to complete a 100 point ID and working with children check, supply references, attend an interview and a one day mentor training course in May prior to being admitted to the program.”

Fears WA paedophile will reoffend in New Zealand

Written by admin on  Categories: 苏州美甲美睫培训学校

A convicted paedophile has been deported from WA to New Zealand.The Department of Immigration has confirmed a convicted paedophile has been deported from Western Australia to New Zealand sparking fears he will be free to attack more children.

After 18 months in jail the 67-year-old man was released from Casuarina Prison last week into the custody of immigration officials. He was due to be deported to New Zealand on Friday night.

On Saturday morning, WAtoday received a statement from the Department of Immigration saying the Department “could confirm that this person has been removed from Australia to New Zealand”.

His family are concerned that the WA parole conditions, which would apply to the man if he had been allowed to stay here, will effectively become redundant now that he is living abroad.

Speaking to 6PR Radio’s mornings host Gary Adshead on Thursday, the man’s daughter, known as “Cindy” said she held grave concerns for children in New Zealand and feared her paedophile father would reoffend if not properly supervised by police.

The man, who cannot be named in order to protect the identity of his victim, was sentenced to three years in jail in August 2013 after a District Court judge found him guilty of three charges of indecently dealing with his 10-year-old granddaughter in 2012.

The three incidents spanned one day when the girl’s mother was ill and she was in her grandfather’s care.

In sentencing, District Court Judge Simon Stone told the offender: “Your conduct towards (your victim) could only be described as reprehensible.  It impacted upon her and destroyed your family.  In effect, you stole her innocence as a child.”

Judge Stone ordered the man be made a reportable sex offender, meaning his particulars are listed on the Australian National Child Offender Register.

Under the terms of his WA parole conditions the man was to have no contact with children and no computer access. He was to have reported regularly to police, undergone random alcohol and drug testing, be subjected to ANCOR monitoring and was banned from contacting his victim.

But Cindy told 6PR she called NZ Police on March 20 to check the parole conditions and they told her they had no idea that he was being deported.

“I will be forever grateful to the Australian Government for deporting him but we were assured that the strict parole conditions he would be on here in WA would definitely be the same ones placed on him in New Zealand,” she said.

Cindy said the family had suspected the sexual abuse of her niece since April 2010, but an investigation by the Department of Community Protection had stalled because the young girl did not disclose the offences to case workers.

“Up until then he had been a really great dad and we trusted him 100 per cent,” she said.

“I’m an adult survivor of child sexual abuse myself and just to hear that from him that this had been going on with my niece, his own granddaughter, for years and years and years…

“The judge said he found that he had been abusing her since she was six years old. As a family, we believe it was many, many years before that.

“I have no doubt whatsoever that he will reoffend.”

Cindy said her father had admitted to certain aspects of his offending to her and her mother, which they relayed to their GP who made a mandatory report to the Department of Community Protection in 2010.

But when Cindy’s then eight-year-old niece did not disclose the offending to DCP officers, the case stalled and was not followed up.

Believing her father was innocent, Cindy’s sister allowed him to move into their home with her children, when the abuse he was later convicted of occurred. The girls’ mother made a report to police in 2012 when her daughter confided in her that the abuse had been occurring.

During sentencing, defence lawyer Simon Freitag told the court the matter of monitoring of his client upon his return to New Zealand was a matter for ANCOR authorities to arrange.

“Ultimately when he is released into the community, as he must be at some point, he will endeavour to return to New Zealand where he has some support and I think your Honour is aware of that through the psychological report,” Mr Freitag told the WA District Court on August 1, 2013.

“And that may also allay some of your Honour’s concerns about contact with his daughters and with the grandchildren because he intends to be elsewhere for the remainder of his life.

“I am not aware of what the New Zealand legislation is, your Honour, that will be a matter, I think, for ANCOR to arrange.  I assume, without knowing, that there would be an equivalent body of some type in New Zealand.” Follow WAtoday on Twitter

AFL season 2015: New-look Melbourne stun Gold Coast Suns

Written by admin on 21/09/2019 Categories: 苏州美甲美睫培训学校

Follow the Age Sport on Twitter

MELBOURNE 2.5 7.7 12.9 17.13 (115)GOLD COAST 1.2 3.6 8.8 13.11 (89)Goals: Melbourne: J Watts 3 B Newton 2 D Tyson 2 J Garlett 2 J Hogan 2 A vandenBerg C Garland C Salem H Lumumba M Jamar N Jones. Gold Coast: G Ablett 2 M Rischitelli 2 S Day 2 A Saad A Sexton D Gorringe D Swallow H Bennell J Harbrow T Miller.Umpires: Chris Donlon, Luke Farmer, Brendan Hosking.Reports: Gold Coast: M Shaw (Gold Coast) reported for rough conduct on Dean Kent (Melbourne) in the first quarter.Official Crowd: 27,013 at MCG.

First, Colin Garland outmarked his opponent on the Melbourne half-back line, turned, took off and kicked. Then Jay Kennedy-Harris marked, looked sideways, played on and placed his pass onto the chest of a moving Dom Tyson. Tyson took a few quick steps, sidestepped an approaching Gold Coast defender, took a few more and then guided the ball towards goal.

Already, Jesse Hogan had taken a big mark at centre half-forward, refusing to be spoiled. Angus Brayshaw had run a player down in the centre square, Jack Viney had won more of the ball than anyone and Aaron Vandenberg had taken a mark as gutsy as Hogan’s. But Tyson’s running goal completed the Demons’ best bit of play yet: quick, precise, confident. It pushed them four goals clear of the Suns but it also raised a question: what would happen from there?

The query was a reasonable one, given that for its many fresh faces in recent years, Melbourne had not won four points in round one since 2005. Not since John Howard was Prime Minister, the Bali Nine was arrested, Pope John Paul II died, Lance Armstrong won his seventh Tour de France and Britney Spears won a Grammy had the Demons started the season with a win and that was three coaches ago, six if you count the interims. Mark Jamar was the only member of Saturday’s side to have played in that match alongside David Neitz, Clint Bizzell, Jeff White, Adem Yze and others.

The question also applied to the Suns, who were far from their usual slick selves and with Tom Lynch missing had no one other than Sam Day to look for moving forward. They began their first challenge early in the second half, winning more contested possessions, moving the ball forward with more urgency and starting to score with a little more ease. Three goals in a row had them within 12 points by halfway through the third quarter and more players were starting to contribute, but it was then that their other problem started to become more apparent.

For all their attacking, the Suns weren’t simultaneously about to hold Melbourne back when the Demons got the ball. Not enough to make them anywhere anxious enough, anyway. And Melbourne wanted to hold on. Brayshaw took a tough mark. Nathan Jones kept running, Viney too. Jack Watts forced the ball to ground on the goal line so that Jeff Garlett could poke it back over with his toe. When Vandenberg smothered a ball on the 50-metre line and handballed off to a running Ben Newton, the Demons were exactly where they were half an hour earlier: four goals clear.

They still needed to resist one last time, from a more pressured position, to make sure it all ended in a win. It happened quickly, too: Jarrod Harbrow scored in the first minute of the last quarter and then Gary Ablett bobbed up not once but twice in the forward pocket, dodging, evading and slipping past players to kick two quick goals and cut the gap to eight points, with more than half of the quarter to go.

Again, the Demons persisted. Again they refused to panic, and again they were able to turn their hard work into goals. Watts kicked his third, around the corner from the boundary line after the ball bounced off Rory Thompson’s boot and over the line on the full. Hogan took another big mark. Newton snapped his second goal and young Sun Jack Martin helped them out at the other end, not quite making the most of his three opportunities. But the “this feels over” moment came when Nick Malceski’s pass out of the back line was intercepted by Heritier Lumumba, who was only ever going to take off, straighten up and thump through a goal.

There was so much more to like. Watts didn’t stop working, his three goals a nice bonus. Newton (foot skills), Garlett (genius), and Lumumba (who linked the half-back and half-forward lines together nicely) all got a tick. Hogan hit the ball hard and didn’t look like a player held up by his body for so long. Brayshaw was what he was before he got to the club last November: hard, tough, competitive. So was the older Vandenberg. Given the chance to play under slightly less stress than they did for most of last season, McDonald and the other defenders controlled most of what went on around them. Any number of others deserved a spot on the best player list: Nathan Jones, Jack Viney, Jeremy Howe, Lynden Dunn, Colin Garland, Tyson.

Melbourne know more than any other team what can go wrong. But the Demons ran and kept running; they seemed to be in motion for most of the day. They looked like a more confident, calm, organised and proactive side, but one willing to knuckle down when it looked like things were starting to turn against them. This was just a start, against a slightly underdone side that needs one or two of its key forwards back badly. But it was a very, very promising one.

Sweynesse and Kermadec have to sweat Doncaster scratchings again

Written by admin on  Categories: 苏州美甲美睫培训学校

Scratching time for the Doncaster Mile on Monday will again be crunch time for three-year-olds Sweynesse and Kermadec as trainers come to grips with the 48-hour delay for the $10 million meeting.

Emergencies Sweynesse and Kermadec had gained runs in the Doncaster when their stablemates It’s Somewhat and Moriarty were withdrawn on Saturday morning but with the postponement the latter two are returned to the field.

It’s Somewhat was scratched with a spike in his temperature and Godolphin supplied a veterinarian certificate. The import will need a clearance before being allowed to start on Monday.

Godolphin trainer John O’Shea said he will assess all his runners for the Randwick program on Sunday and wait until Monday to make final decisions.

“It is not that big a deal. Our horses were ready to go [on Saturday} but there is nothing we can do about what has happened,” O’Shea said. ‘We are all  on a level playing field with what has happened.

“It’s Somewhat could be right for Monday but that will be a decision by our vets.”

Moriarty was taken out because of the heavy track by premier trainer Chris Waller. He acknowledged the Kingston Town Stakes winner struggles to produce his best on wet tracks.

“He will not run if the track was worse than heavy,” Waller said. “We would like to see the track improve on Monday for him to run.”

Kermadec and Sweynesse have been well in the market for the Doncaster since betting began. Kermadec is at $7 second favourite behind Hallowed Crown at $6 after the scratchings on Saturday and Sweynesse got to $12.

Waller spent Saturday reprogramming his horse that were to run at Warwick Farm on Wednesday, a meeting that has been cancelled.

“There is not much we can do with the ones that were running [on Saturday]. They are fit and ready to go, but we have to wait,” he said.

“I just had to reschedule a couple of things in the week because I wasn’t going to the races on Monday because I had to finish looking at yearlings.

“The horses that were to run on Wednesday had  to be reprogrammed. I have done that.”

Moving the meeting to Monday means there will be only five days between the Doncaster Mile and the Queen Elizabeth Stakes on the second day of The Championships. That will not affect the plans for three-time group 1 winner Happy Trails to run in both races.

“He’ll run on Monday. He’ll still back up,” trainer Paul Beshara said. “I think they’ve done the right thing by postponing them because it’s a bog out there.

“If someone gets badly hurt or killed then everyone will be saying ‘You should have called them off”. It’s actually good to see a club make these decisions.

“Most people do their trackwork on Tuesday for Saturday so he’ll be doing his work on Monday [in the Doncaster].”

There is not much trainers can do between Saturday and Monday but for a couple of horses which have been struggling with injury the extra couple of days would be helpful.

Mick Price, who prepares world champion sprinter Lankan Rupee, probably put it best.

“There will be a couple of really fresh horses there on Monday and we might learn a thing or two about them,” Price said.

The times have been changed for Monday’s meeting because of the end of daylight saving. Racing will began at 11.25am with the last to run at 5pm.

Stabling had to be arranged for horses which travelled to Sydney for the Country Championship.

South Sydney Rabbitohs star Issac Luke apologises for homophobic slur on Instagram

Written by admin on  Categories: 苏州美甲美睫培训学校

Follow LeagueHQ on Twitter

The NRL is investigating Issac Luke over a homophobic slur the South Sydney star made on social media.

The fallout from the Rabbitohs’ controversial win over Canterbury on Friday night continues after the club confirmed Luke was responsible for the comment posted on his official Instagram account on Saturday

In response to taunts, Luke wrote: “get off my page you lil poofters. This is about a kid your fans knocked out. Well now two kids Yous dropped. We train at Redfern come down and see if you fellas are still carrying on #rulesarerules even though it was a hard penalty to take. I bet yous would’ve done the same had we done it to one of your players. Or we would’ve have even had u gooses commenting had it happened earlier on in the game. Now get off my page.”

The post was quickly deleted.

After being alerted to the incident, the NRL issued a statement and is likely to forward the matter to its integrity unit.

“Rugby League is a game for everyone regardless of race, colour, religion, ability or sexuality,” an NRL spokesperson said.

“As an inclusive game, we do not tolerate discrimination in any form. This is an important matter, and it is certainly one which we will take up with Souths.”

Luke’s good intentions backfired after he had reached out to find a South Sydney fan injured after Friday’s clash. The 27-year-old, who was involved in a contentious eight-point try in the grand final rematch, had called on South Sydney fans to help him identify the Rabbitohs fan who was taken to hospital after the game.

Luke contacted the Rabbitohs with a desire to donate a jersey and drop some Easter eggs to the boy. He still intends to do so.

His original post read: “Just reaching out to the SSTID FANS on the whereabouts of the young SOUTHS fan who ended up in hospital last night. We have something for him, Should he see this or anyone that knows him please DM me and will try to get in contact with him. I’m gonna make sure his Easter is as happy as our South Sydney families is. Let me know please.”

Later on Saturday night, Luke posted an apology on his Instagram account.

“Thanks to everyone who helped me find the young fella,” Luke wrote.

“I managed to get a hold of two young fellas that happened to have been affected. Also I just wanna apologise for what I said to fans. I was very worried and my emotion got the better of me I didn’t mean to offend anyone. Just tip me up if I’m being silly peeps. Thanks to those who did. #respect everyone. Love yous all.”

It’s not the first time Luke has become embroiled in controversy over his social media posting. The New Zealand hooker was forced to back down from his intention to pay tribute to South Sydney teammate Kirisome Auva’a by writing his name on his wrist in the Four Nations final against Australia.

“Thinking about you my boy @somauvaa keep your head up high. Love from me and my family bol. #onelove somi/ Will write you on my wrist tomorrow night. Love u us.” Luke wrote on the social media platform.

Auva’a, who pleaded guilty to recklessly causing injury to his former girlfriend last year, was suspended for a minimum of nine months. He sought a reduction from the NRL but was denied and won’t be able to re-apply to have his suspension lifted until July 27.

Luke’s post caused a firestorm on social media and he later posted he would not write Avis name on his wrist.

“I’m against [domestic violence] as much as yous are but I’m not supporting what he done,” one Tweet from Luke read at the time. “I can only help him try get better from it.”

Luke said in another: “Not supporting what he’s done actually wanna kick his a*** and can only feel for the madam who was on the other end.

“Pretty sure everyone that has done something wrong. Their families and friends stuck by him/her. Which is what I’m doing.”

On Saturday night, the Rabbitohs issued a statement, saying they were disappointed by Luke’s “inappropriate use of language”.

“Issac had reached out via social media in an attempt to contact an injured South Sydney supporter who was taken to hospital last night after being assaulted. Issac had offered to give his game day jersey to the injured supporter

“As part of his enquiries on social media today some offensive comments were directed at Issac by persons unknown to him.

“He reacted inappropriately to those comments.

“Issac understands his responsibilities as a public person and has made a commitment not to react in this manner again to offensive comments on social media”, the release added.

The Luke incident comes just weeks after Waratahs forward Jacques Potgieter was fined $10,000 by the Australian Rugby Union for making homophobic slurs during a match against the Brumbies. admitted to using the term “f****t” against his opponents and apologised unreservedly.

Players need to get the balance right

Written by admin on  Categories: 苏州美甲美睫培训学校

Follow the Age Sport on Twitter

Some players spend all of their childhood dreaming of becoming an AFL footballer and when they finally get there, they soon realise that it is a grind and not the game they came to love as a child. Increasingly players are talking privately of how there is no fun left to be had inside an AFL club.

High levels of pressure and expectations from inside and outside the four walls of a club will do that to you and the modern professional player is more susceptible than ever to the dangers of illicit and performance-enhancing drugs.

I have no tolerance whatsoever for drugs and I’m not going to make excuses for any player who goes down that road, but we are at a tipping point in the game where players are in desperate need of a greater work/life balance to ease some of the  pressures being placed on them.

Last year Fox Footy’s On the Couch program hosted Chris Judd, who discussed his interests away from football and why they are so important to him. Judd said that he had multiple interests away from the AFL as he never wanted his moods throughout the week to be dictated solely by whether he played a good game or a bad one the week before. Judd stated that his business interests away from the game helped him to achieve that.

It made me reflect on my own career. In hindsight I had no balance whatsoever in my life from the age of 16 to 28 until I had my first child. I only started developing myself off the field after tearing my hamstring off the bone in round three of 2006. I tortured myself for the first 12 years of my career with the emotional roller-coaster of being relieved when I played well and the team was winning, or beating myself up until Wednesday if I had a shocker and didn’t contribute enough to help the team win.

Never once did I think how great is it to play AFL football. How much fun is this? The game was merely a weekly assessment of whether I was fulfilling the standards expected by myself, the club and, yes, even the media. This pressure meant I never allowed myself to enjoy the game and realise how privileged I was to have that opportunity to represent Essendon at the MCG in front of a packed house. Whenever this discussion is raised on talkback radio, I often hear callers say how precious AFL footballers are. The young callers often say how they would happily throw in an apprenticeship to earn thousands of dollars as an AFL footballer. I fully understand that thinking, but it must be acknowledged that professional football is a ruthless beast  and you can be spat out of the system at any time. That pressure, along with being scrutinised at alll times by the media makes for a long and stressful  26-week season.

Players are now given eight weeks off at the end of the season, which is more than adequate, but expectations have got so high that some clubs are expecting players to perform personal best times on the first day that they return in November. This means some players are taking just two weeks off and are spending the rest of the break anxious at the thought of not dropping off in any way.

With that expectation there is a suggestion in AFL circles that some players are taking illicit drugs over their break rather than drinking alcohol as they don’t want to put on any weight.

I spoke to AFL Players Association boss Paul Marsh during the week and he believes  that one of the biggest issues that came out of his meeting recently with the 18 player delegates was getting the players’ work/life balance right at AFL clubs.

The number of players completing degrees has been decreasing in recent years and that lack of personal development has both past and present players struggling to deal with the transition to life in the “real world”.

While it is a brutally challenging profession, playing in the AFL presents you with so many more opportunities to make a better life for yourself if you maximise the opportunities and resources you have at your disposal while in the game. Recent data says that the average career span of a player is six years, so the window to grab those opportunities can be small.

In the end, being on an AFL list is a short part of your life and a minority of players are making the wrong choices due to the pressure of continuing their career, or in some cases just through stupidity.

Chris Judd said that he would rather have pressure and expectations placed on him than none at all. That is the comment of a man with everything in perspective.

Nick Riewoldt is also somebody every footballer should think about today as he deals with the worst kind of grief, due to the   loss of his younger sister Madeleine. It makes all the other pressures and stress seem so insignificant when you think of what Nick and his family have been going through over recent weeks and how Nick himself has somehow managed to prepare himself to play.

It should be a reminder to all of how precious life and family is and that playing   football – no matter how demanding –  is a career to cherish and enjoy.

Motocross rider dies at Seaford

Written by admin on  Categories: 苏州美甲美睫培训学校

A man in his mid-20s has died after a motocross collision south of Melbourne on Saturday.

Paramedics were called to Frankston City Motorcycle Park about 2.20pm after a reported collision between two men in their 20s.

Ambulance Victoria spokesman Paul Bentley said paramedics desperately fought to save one of the riders who was critically injured.

“One of them suffered head injuries and was in cardiac arrest when paramedics arrived,” he said.

“They tried for about 45 minutes to revive him but unfortunately were unsuccessful.

“The other man suffered some minor injuries and didn’t go to hospital.”

A source told The Age the man who died had gone over a jump and crashed.

The man came off his bike and a motorcyclist behind him went over the same jump and landed on top of him.

The man’s death will not be added to the road toll as it happened on private property.

WorkSafe is investigating the incident.

Police will prepare a report for the coroner.

Some vendors still took home the chocolates on a low-key Easter auction weekend

Written by admin on 21/08/2019 Categories: 苏州美甲美睫培训学校

The waterfront 8 River Reserve Road, Aireys Inlet, was auctioned over the Easter long weekend. Photo: SuppliedAll is quiet on the home front of Melbourne’s auction market this weekend.

But the Easter Bunny came early for the very small number of metropolitan vendors – just nine – who listed on Saturday.

On the back of a record-busting autumn Saturday last week, only five properties were sold under the hammer in metro Melbourne, according to results reported to the Domain Group.

The dip in numbers was extreme – last weekend almost 1400 properties were auctioned in a hot early year of the market.

But at least one vendor’s gamble, listing on a low-key weekend that was not flush with choices for buyers, paid off handsomely.

At 142 Junction Road in Nunawading, a humble four-bedroom home drew a crowd of 200 onlookers and eight bidders, whose battle pushed the price to $220,000 over reserve.

A developer paid $920,000 for the brick property, which was built in about 1980.

Harcourts agent Archie Mantsos said its development potential was a major drawcard.

In Mill Park, two bidders duelled for a pretty four-bedroom brick house at 7 Nervern Court, with a backyard pool and outdoor wood pizza oven, in a quiet cul-de-sac.

The winning bidder rewarded Ray White auctioneer Andrew Mizzi for clocking on, when most of other agents were at the pub or poolside, by paying $560,000.

Some regional agents took advantage of sunchasers flocking to the coast over the four-day break.

At Golden Beach in Gippsland in eastern Victoria, agent and auctioneer Laurie Keady has no trouble offloading a no-frills Cape Cod style home with enviable foreshore access.

“It’s a wonderful day – who wouldn’t want to buy down by the beach?” Ms Keady said.

“We are a tiny village but there was a good roll-up [for the auction].”

An onlooker said the four bedroom home at 74 Shoreline Drive was knocked down for $210,000.

Marty Maher, from Great Ocean Properties, was another coastal agent whose holiday was also on hold.

He auctioned a modern tri-level home overlooking the river at Aireys Inlet.

However, no buyer would take the chocolates: it was passed in on a vendor bid of $950,000 – but post-auction negotiations with a prospective buyer were soon underway.

Mr Maher said there were strong attendances at open for inspections along the west coast, buoyed by the influx of holidaymakers from the city.

“We are at absolute peak down here so we have been very busy,” Mr Maher said.

“Easter here is the reverse of Melbourne – everyone is down here.”

Proceedings will pick up again next weekend, with 546 Melbourne auctions scheduled.

Video spotlight on Heloise

Written by admin on  Categories: 苏州美甲美睫培训学校

Former Launceston singer-songwriter Heloise’s move to Melbourne has resulted in some big opportunities.

Former Launceston singer-songwriter Heloise’s move to Melbourne has resulted in some big opportunities.

IT has been almost two years since Launceston singer-songwriter Heloise left the state for Melbourne, and already it is bringing in big opportunities.

Heloise has just released her first ever video clip to go with her award-winning single This is Home.

The clip was produced by well-respected filmmaker Wilk, who has worked with the likes of Sarah Blasko, and was made possible after Heloise won the Bank Of Melbourne’s second annual Melbourne Music Bank last October with the song.

The win also saw the 21-year-old record for two days at Melbourne’s Sing Sing Studios and receive PR and marketing advice and 500 CDs of her recording. Her song This is Home will be used in a Bank of Melbourne advertising campaign later this year.

Heloise said she had been bombarded with media requests since the clip was released earlier this week.

‘‘I had four Q and A features sent to me and they said ‘can you have these back by tomorrow?’’ Heloise said on Thursday.

‘‘I’ve been bombarded, but it’s really good. I’m loving it.’’

Although Heloise left the state in May 2013, she still returns a lot to spend time with her mum, Steph Sowerby, and perform with her band, also called Heloise.

‘‘It’s gone quickly,’’ she said.

‘‘(This summer) we played Falls, played Festivale, played Party in the Paddock, we did a couple of weddings here and there and it’s mostly been preparing for this (film) clip.’’

The song to the clip, which won the Music Bank award, had to be about why the musician loved Melbourne and what inspired them as an artist.

‘‘Having freshly moved from Tassie, I wrote about my experience moving here, all the places I’ve found, people I’ve come across … hidden gems across the city,’’ Heloise said.

The idea for the song’s film clip was Wilk’s.

‘‘I think it really suited the song,’’ she said.

The clip was filmed on a railway just out of Melbourne with the production crew hiring out five carriages for two and a half hours.

People on the train are extras, with Heloise liking the fact that her band members got to play a part.

Band members include fellow former Launceston musicians Nic Symons, Jared Campbell, Lee Mallinson and Heidi Maguire.

The This Is Home single and video will officially be launched on April 30 at the Workers Club in Brunswick, Victoria.

‘‘I’ve got a lot of family and friends coming over, so I’ll be pulling out the mattresses,’’ Heloise laughed.

After the launch, it will be back to writing, performing and recording, with Heloise and her band hoping to release a second EP by the end of the year.

‘‘Ultimately the dream is to be able to make a career out of this,’’ Heloise said.

‘‘I’d love to be able to be successful and do what I love for the rest of my life.’’

Laneway set for a cool change

Written by admin on  Categories: 苏州美甲美睫培训学校


THERE is a laneway in Devonport that is getting trendier by the year – and it’s about to get even cooler.

Rooke Lane is once again playing host to Reclaim the Lane, a celebration of youth arts and music, on Friday.

The event will feature Hobart street artist Laura McMahon, an open-mic event, free pizza, a photobooth, roving performances by Slipstream Circus and more.

It will also launch National Youth Week for Tasmania.

Devonport Regional Gallery education and public programs officer Dianne Sheehan said Reclaim the Lane was about celebrating the young people in the community, as well as the North-West’s arts and culture.

It is held in the lane as that has recently become a vibrant hub.

The lane, between Steele and Stewart streets, has become home to a new artist workspace, public art, a yoga studio, coffee shops and the iconic Devonport Regional Gallery in the past few years.

Ms Sheehan said that during Friday’s event sketchbooks created by North-West Coast youth would be displayed in the gallery.

More than 400 sketchbooks had been sent out to youth in the region.

‘‘Even if we receive only half of those back, it’s going to be a great exhibition,’’ Ms Sheehan said.

Those who want to take part in the Soap-box open-mic event can just ‘‘rock up’’ on the day.

Participants will have up to 10 minutes on the stage and can do anything from performing music to poetry and everything in between.

Another stage will be set up as a dedicated space for young musicians from schools across the region to perform.

Service providers will also have exhibits in the laneway, including TasTAFE, which has been working on a SelfiEsteam project with North-West youth.

National Youth Week runs from Friday, April 10, to April 19 and is about celebrating young people.

This year’s theme is ‘‘It Starts with Us.’’

More than 20 events have been planned for Tasmania.

Hobart street artist Laura McMahon will be the guest artist.

Girl dies, brother fighting for life after Wyee crash

Written by admin on  Categories: 苏州美甲美睫培训学校

AN eight-year-old girl has died and her nine-year-old brother is fighting for his life after a car crash at Wyee.

The girl, who died on Sunday,was one of seven injured in a collision involving a Holden Astra and a Toyota Hilux on Wyee Road, at Doyalson, about 5.15pm on Saturday.

Two women and three children travelling in a car and two women travelling in the ute were trapped in the wreckage before being released by emergency services.

A12-year-old boy is now in a stable condition but the nine-year-old boyremains critical.

All four women sustained fractures in the crash but are reported to be in a stable condition.

Traffic and Highway Patrol Commander, Assistant Commissioner John Hartley, said Easter Sunday was when many Australians get together with families.

“But after the tragic crash yesterday, we have a family that has been torn apart,” he said.

“An eight-year-old girl died this morning and her nine-year-old brother is fighting for his life as a result of that collision yesterday.

“Please, before you get into your car today, talk to each other, make the commitment to whoever is in your car or on your bike, that they are your responsibility.

“Don’t become distracted, don’t drive faster than you should, and for everyone’s sake – don’t become complacent.

“And if you are going to return home from the Easter long weekend today or tomorrow, be prepared for the delays and don’t become impatient.”

INITIAL REPORT: THREE children are critical and four adults injured after an Easter crash at Wyee.

Emergency services were called to Wyee Road about 5.15pm on Saturday after a Holden Astra and a Toyota Hilux ute collided.

Two boys, nineand 12, and a five-year-old girl had suffered critical injuries in the incident, with the two youngest children taken to Wyong Hospital.

The 12-year-old boy was taken to the John Hunter Hospital, with the younger children initially taken to Wyong hospital.

It is understood they will be taken to another hospital to receive specialist treatment, while emergency services were also expected to fly two of the adults to hospital on Saturday night.

Police said the three children’s conditions were unknown at 7.30pm.

“Local diversions are in place around the crash site and motorists are advised to use caution when approaching the area,” NSW Police said in a statement.

“Wyee Road will be closed to all traffic for a number of hours to allow inquiries to be carried out at the scene.”

Traffic and Highway Patrol Command’s Assistant Commissioner John Hartley said this crash would leave many families changed forever.

“It doesn’t matter if you are young or old, driver or passenger – the road is there to share,” he said.

“When you get behind the wheel you accept the risks that go with it and that includes the real possibility you will change your family’s life or that of another family forever.”

Assistant Commissioner Hartley urged all drivers to slow down and leave more room than usual between the vehicle ahead.
