There is the opportunity here for someone to include a mezzanine down the track,” he said.Only launched to the market this month, Mr Di Bartolomeo said local downsizers had shown a keen interest in the penthouse. “We designed this building based on our clients. We identified they are moving from a home and want something equivalent to a home,” he said.“This could be their last acquisition and there is the opportunity to create it.

He said more than $2 million had been spent on the building’s facade so it never had to be painted again. Follow us on Facebook. MORE QLD REAL ESTATE NEWS: WHAT’S INSIDE A $16M PENTHOUSE?

Julian Rivers – Jubilee Centre – volume 21 number 3 September 2012The Government’s proposal to introduce same-sex marriage seems to rest on reasons of equality, stability and convenience. But on closer inspection, these are respectively incomplete, speculative and negligible. As currently defined, marriage secures the equal value of men and women. It also promotes the welfare of children. By contrast, the new definition of marriage will unavoidably call into question its exclusivity, its permanence and even its sexual nature. Such an unravelling of marriage is too high a price to pay for a proposal which fulfils no practical legal need.READ MORE http://www.jubilee-centre.org/redefining-marriage-the-case-for-caution/

She can see how mums turn to formula without enough support.”Yep#DadsMatterDoting dads who chip in around the house could help to boost breast milk production in mothers, new research shows.Those who feel supported by their partners have better milk production and more success in exclusively breast feeding, University of Waikato masters student Angga Rahadian’s research found.Happy mums are the most important thing when it comes to feeding, with stress known to dry up the breast milk, Rahadian said.While Rahadian, originally from Jakarta, based her research around Indonesian parents, her supervisor Dr Polly Atatoa Carr said it’s applicable to New Zealanders.The research comes amid dropping breastfeeding rates in New Zealand.Last year research found only 16 per cent of New Zealand mums were exclusively breastfeeding for the six month period recommended by the World Health Organisation.Yet few breastfeeding campaigns target fathers, Atatoa Carr said.READ MORE: https://www.stuff.co.nz/national/105159892/Supportive-dads-increase-breast-milk-success-Waikato-University-study-shows?cid=app-iPhone
The community of Osgood lost a familiar smile and a friend with the sudden passing of Gene Russell Flint Sr. age 54, on Saturday, April 11, 2020. Gene was born on October 27, 1965, in Madison, In., the son of Gene Arthur and Alene (Cave) Flint. His childhood would see him move from Texas to Tennessee before settling in Osgood.Gene finished his education at Jac-Cen-Del and was a graduate of the Class of 1983. After completing school Gene joined the United States Army and began his basic training. He had entered the Army Airborne Division but was forced to return home after the passing of his father.In August of 1984, Gene had begun working in the family business and consequently one fateful day was needing to get lunch. He had no idea that stopping at Ernie’s (Larry’s) Pizza in Versailles and ordering would forever change his world by meeting his future bride, Miss Paula Derringer. Gene and Paula were married on September 11, 1989 in a very short ceremony held in Mama’s Pizza in downtown Osgood. They were blessed with two sons, Gene Russell and Ryan Arthur. Gene and Paula have been a team in every aspect of the way. Gene was self-employed and operated numerous adventures over the years from siding to trucking. A hard worker, he wasn’t scared to venture into about anything. His first and foremost important job was simply being Dad, which has evolved into being the best grandpa he could be.Gene and Paula in recent years had been blessed to take long vacations and travel to many states. He has fished numerous lakes, oceans, and various points in between, from Maine to California. The family said every vacation ever taken revolved around being able to fish. He wasn’t afraid to push it to the limit on getting out on the water.Gene was a proud member of Church on the Rock in Batesville.Gene is survived by wife, Paula, sons, Gene Russell and Ryan Arthur (Sabrina Yocum), loving mother, Alene Flint, granddaughters, Emma Grace, Bailey Sue, and Whitley Jean, and grandson, Wyatt Russell. He was preceded in death by father, Gene Arthur, brother, Michael, and sister, Michelle. Due to the Covid 19 restraints in place a memorial service will be planned at a future time. Memorials may be given to Church on the Rock in care of Neal’s Funeral Home. Online memorials can also be left at Nealsfuneralhome.netTo plant a tree in memory of Gene Russell Flint, please visit our tribute store.
Press Association “When you are a manager you have to manage the football club, but the role has changed and it gives me maximum time on the training ground, coaching the players. “What I have done is given Steve (Stone) and Dave (Watson) more responsibility because they are very good at what they do, and it is important that you delegate to those who are talented. “But when it comes to the meat of the session, it is my responsibility to prepare the team for the final 16 games. “The players have been really positive and have responded. “Even though we haven’t won a game yet, I think we’ve played some nice stuff in spells. “Ultimately though, it is about scoring goals and winning games so that needs to change. “We’ve done plenty of work on that on the training pitch and hopefully that little bit of luck we need will fall our way this weekend.” Carver’s hopes of a first victory in charge could be boosted by the return of top scorer Papiss Cisse following Senegal’s early exit from the African Nations Cup on Tuesday. Senegal’s 2-0 defeat to Algeria saw them crash out at the group stage and nine-goal Cisse, who scored twice in a 2-2 home draw with Hull in September, could now be available for the trip to the KC Stadium. Newcastle have been linked with Hamburg striker Pierre-Michel Lasogga – but the Bundesliga club say there has been no official offer for the Germany Under-21 international. Hamburg sporting director Peter Knabel told Sport Bild about Newcastle’s interest: “There have been requests, but no offer.” Lasogga has been linked with Newcastle in the past, most notably towards the end of last term before he turned a loan deal at Hamburg into a permanent move. The 23-year-old scored four times in 11 appearances for Germany’s U21 side and hit 13 goals for Hamburg in 20 league games while on loan from Hertha Berlin in the 2013-14 season. But Lasogga, who is contracted at Hamburg until 2019, has struggled in front of goal this season and scored just twice in 16 Bundesliga appearances. Newcastle striker Siem de Jong hopes his long spell on the sidelines is coming to an end after he scored in Tuesday’s 3-1 behind-closed-doors friendly victory over Carlisle. The Dutchman, who turned 26 on Wednesday, cost Newcastle £6million when he joined from Ajax last summer but the striker has started only one Barclays Premier League game after picking up a thigh injury. “Hopefully I’ll be back playing real games soon and this was a nice start,” de Jong told nufcTV after coming off at half-time against Carlisle in a planned substitution. “I’ve been training for a while now and training with the group as well, but this is different. “It’s the first game in four months so I have to be patient and keep playing games.” Carver was handed the reins at St James’ Park until the end of the season on Monday, starting with Saturday’s Barclays Premier League trip to Hull. Eleventh-placed Newcastle have lost their last three games and failed to win in four as the 50-year-old former assistant manager seeks his first victory at the helm since succeeding Alan Pardew earlier this month. John Carver says he will not allow Newcastle’s season to “drift away” after being appointed head coach until the end of the season. “I’m delighted to have got the job until the end of the season,” Carver told nufc.co.uk. “Everyone knows I love this club and my goals are simple – to finish as high as we can in the Premier League and get as many points as we can. “Everybody on the outside is talking about our season petering away but I am not going to allow that to happen. “Those who are saying that don’t know me, don’t know the people around me and don’t know this group of players. “We’re much more professional than that. We can’t afford to let the season drift away and I won’t allow it to happen. “I’m too demanding and I won’t allow anyone to slacken off between now and the end of May.” Carver will work alongside Steve Stone and Dave Watson, the latter having stepped up from looking after the Magpies’ Under-18 side, and says he plans to spend as much time on the training ground as he did when he was Pardew’s assistant. “I love being on the training pitch and the role of the head coach is to be hands-on out here,” Carver said.

Michael Parks, a Pulitzer Prize-winning writer and former Los Angeles Times editor, will lead the Annenberg School for Communication and Journalism as interim director for the second time, Annenberg announced Tuesday.The decision comes after Douglas Foster, a Northwestern University professor, withdrew from the director position after accepting it Friday, according to the Los Angeles Times.This will be Parks’ second time as interim director for the school, serving in the position before in 2001 after being a part of the Annenberg faculty for a year. In March 2002, he was named director and served until June 2008, when outgoing director Geneva Overholser was selected.Overholser announced in November that she will step down as director in June, at which point the school launched a recruitment campaign for her successor. The search for a new director will continue as Parks heads the school.Annenberg Dean Ernest J. Wilson III said Parks’ experience will positively impact the school and its students.“Michael Parks is a real star,” Wilson said in a statement. “His extraordinary wisdom and experience will be invaluable to our students, faculty and staff.”Early in his career, Parks reported internationally and won the 1987 Pulitzer Prize for International Reporting for his coverage of the struggle against apartheid in South Africa. He served as the Los Angeles Times editor from 1997 to 2000.Parks said he looks forward to returning to Annenberg at a time of great change, including the construction of the Wallis Annenberg Hall, which is slated to open in fall 2014.“We have great students and a terrific faculty that is looking forward to taking full advantage of this wonderful new building and all the opportunities that it will provide in developing an even more innovative program for our students,” Parks said. “I’m proud to lead the USC Annenberg Journalism School as we move closer to this remarkable milestone.”During Parks’ first term, he guided the creation and adoption of a new core reporting curriculum in print, broadcast and new media programs. He also expanded the international reporting programs and developed the school’s focus on covering diverse communities.
The USC women’s soccer team looks to build off a big win as they prepare to continue their homestand and wrap up nonconference play against Florida Atlantic on Thursday and Cal State Fullerton on Sunday.Open pitch · Freshman Kayla Mills has provided a spark on offense in her first year at Troy, and leads USC in points (11) and assists (5). – Nick Entin | Daily TrojanThe Women of Troy (4-2-1) ended a three-game losing streak on Sunday with a decisive 5-1 win over Loyola Marymount. After only scoring one goal during the streak, USC erupted for five goals in the first half and four in the first 19 minutes to set a season-high for goals scored. Sophomore forward Katie Johnson finished with a hat trick after 19 minutes of play, with senior forward Elizabeth Eddy and senior midfielder Jordan Marada accounting for the other two goals. Junior goalkeeper Caroline Stanley earned 5 saves before being substituted with about 15 minutes left to play.“I think in our game against LMU it was the first time that you could see we were hungry to score goals,” junior forward Jessica Musmanno said. “That’s the type of mentality we want to continue throughout the rest of our season, just doing the little things right where we were unlucky before. Hopefully the streak keeps going.”Despite the big win over LMU, the Women of Troy dropped out of the NCAA rankings, but are still receiving votes. They entered the weekend ranked No. 23, and have been ranked as high as No. 17 this season.USC is outscoring opponents 18-8 on the year, with Eddy leading the team with five goals. Freshman forward Kayla Mills leads the team in points (11) and assists (5), while Stanley has a .800 save percentage and 0.86 goals against average (GAA) on the season.“Our focus is still on sharpening some of the errors we’ve made defensively that have led to goals,” coach Ali Khosroshahin said. “We create and finish opportunities for ourselves, and being able to do things a little faster, a little quicker, a bit more pressure. The team seems to be responding.”FAU (2-4-1) is coming off a blowout in their last game, a 10-0 rout over Arkansas-Pine Bluff (1-7-0) on Sunday. The team finished with a school-record 40 shots (22 on goal), with midfielder Claire Emslie recording a hat trick and an assist. It was the Owls’ second straight win of the season, after being outscored 8-2 during a five-game winless streak to start the season.It will be the first time that USC has played Florida Atlantic in the program’s history.Esmlie’s three goals and seven points lead the team, while Taylor Sorrels and Julie Taylor have two goals each. Courtney Zwetsch has a save percentage of .750 in 9 games, with a GAA of 1.25.“We can’t really worry about them,” Musmanno said. “We just have to be confident and shut down our defending. I think right now our defenders have been doing really well, so I have faith in our backline that they’re not going to get scored on 10 times [like Arkansas-Pine Bluff].”Cal State Fullerton’s (3-2-2) last contest resulted in a 0-0 tie against Utah State (4-1-2). They outshot the Aggies 17-12 during the contest, but committed a staggering 27 fouls to Utah State’s 10.USC last played Cal State Fullerton in the 2012 season opener, winning the game 3-2 on the road despite having one defender sent off with a red card. Marada had a goal and an assist in the contest.Christina Burkenroad leads the Titans with three points on the year, while Lindsey Maricic has an .882 save percentage and 0.62 GAA on the year. The team has a more defensive mindset, outscoring opponents 5-4 and recording five shutouts on the season.Both games kick off at 3 p.m. at McAlister Field, with USC facing off against the Owls on Thursday before taking on the Titans on Sunday. After this weekend, the team will head on the road to start conference play.Follow us on Twitter @dailytrojan
