Richlister Kevin Seymour’s best piece of property advice and how he’s realised his dream home

first_imgWe live in Teneriffe, right on the border of New Farm. With a busy business schedule, we like to live close to the City with easy access. We enjoy the convenience of all the shops, restaurants, cinemas, parks, river walk, etc that abound in the area. And of course, enjoy the ever changing scenery of the Brisbane river and skyline and being able to moor our boat outside our front door. The best piece of property advice was to acquire a site on the Brisbane River close to the city Price escalation has proven to be the highest and best in Queensland. There is no better an investment.

New Farm itself is very leafy and green with a good number of large parks and a wide range of colonial and pre-1940 timber and tin homes that have been or are undergoing serious renovations that blend in well with the modern high rises that are springing up in the area and adding to the vibrancy of our suburb. These all add to the charm of the area, and of course not forgetting the fabulous river walk which is well and truly used by locals. The Village atmosphere is quiet and un-intrusive and the area has excellent transport choices to the city. An ideal oasis close to the CBD. Where do you live and why?

Where’s the pot? California tracking system unlikely to know

first_imgRadio NZ News 9 May 2019Family First Comment: “As of last month, just nine retail outlets were entering data into the network established under an estimated $US60 million state contract, even though 627 shops are licensed to sell pot in California.”So called ‘regulation’ fails! And not just in California.When California voters broadly legalised marijuana, they were promised that a vast computer platform would closely monitor products moving through the new market. But 16 months after sales kicked in, the system known as track-and-trace isn’t doing much of either.As of last month, just nine retail outlets were entering data into the network established under an estimated $US60 million state contract, even though 627 shops are licensed to sell pot in California.The rate of participation is similarly slim for other sectors in the emerging industry.Only 93 of more than 1000 licensed manufacturing companies producing extracts, oils and other products were documenting their activities in the network in April. And of the nearly 4000 licensed growers, only about 7 percent, or 254, are using the high-tech system, according to a review of state data.How are state officials watching over the nation’s largest legal pot market ? For now, it’s essentially a paper trail.Most California companies are required to document their business on paper sales invoices and shipping manifests. But experts say that can be a doorway for criminal traffic.With paper records, regulators are relying on an honor system, said Patrick Vo, CEO of BioTrackTHC, which provides seed-to-sale cannabis tracking in eight states, including New York and Illinois.Without a digital crumb trail in place, “there are so many areas where things can go wrong,” Mr Vo said. “Things can be intentionally altered.”READ MORE: https://www.radionz.co.nz/news/world/388855/where-s-the-pot-california-tracking-system-unlikely-to-knowlast_img read more

Fair goes unselected in NBA Draft

first_img Facebook Twitter Google+ Published on June 27, 2014 at 12:08 am Contact Phil: pmdabbra@syr.edu | @PhilDAbb NEW YORK — All of the hectic traveling didn’t pay off for C.J. Fair.After a month of working out with half of the NBA, Fair went undrafted in the NBA Draft at the Barclays Center in Brooklyn, N.Y. on Thursday night. The lengthy forward passed up on the NBA Draft last year, when he was considered a borderline first-round pick, and instead returned to Syracuse for his senior year. Fair would have been the third former Orange player taken in this year’s class, after point guard Tyler Ennis and forward Jerami Grant were selected in the first and second rounds, respectively.As Syracuse’s leading scorer for the past two years, Fair developed a deadly mid-range jumper and often flashed his explosiveness at the rim. In his senior year, he averaged 16.5 points per game, 6.4 rebounds and 1.3 steals as the go-to scorer for the Orange.Analysts were unsure of how well Fair would adjust to being an NBA small forward, but now he’ll have to latch on with an NBA team as an undrafted free agent to prove himself.AdvertisementThis is placeholder text Commentscenter_img Related Stories Philadelphia 76ers select Grant with the 39th overall pick in 2nd round Phoenix Suns select Ennis 18th overall, make him 1st SU player taken in 2014 NBA DraftEnnis sees himself fitting into Phoenix’s fast-paced offenselast_img read more

Women’s basketball opens season with victory over UC Riverside

first_imgJunior guard Minyon Moore dribbles in an offensive attack in the Trojans 2018 home opener against UC Riverside. Moore scored 16 points, 12 of which came in the second half, to aid in USC’s 73-55 win. (Emily Smith | Daily Trojan)An aggressive third quarter spearheaded by junior point guard Minyon Moore helped the Women of Troy defend home court in a season-opening 73-55 victory Tuesday.A 13-0 run from UC Riverside before halftime led to a 30-30 tie at the half. The Trojans came out of halftime with an attack mindset as they switched to a 1-2-2 full court press and focused more on speeding up the game. USC managed to outscore UC Riverside 27-12 in a third quarter that came to define the game; not even a 2-3 zone could contain the flow the Trojans managed to play with in the second half. Head coach Mark Trakh credited the game’s momentum swing to the Moore sisters, junior guard Minyon and senior guard Mariya.“[Minyon] knew, ‘[I’ve] got to turn it up and everybody will turn it up with me,’” Trakh said. “Mariya came out and hit a couple of 3-pointers … and that was the difference.”Minyon Moore scored 12 of her 16 points in the second half and served as a constant spark on both sides of the ball as she screamed out instructions on defense and looked to push the pace after each of her 12 rebounds. The 2017-18 Pac-12 All-Defensive Team member kicked off the season with a near triple-double, as she posted a stat line of 16 points, 12 rebounds and seven assists. Despite accompanying a near triple-double effort with a block and three steals, Minyon Moore still believed there was room for improvement. “I had a couple of stupid errors that I usually don’t have,” Minyon Moore said. “On defense, it’s a new group so sometimes I tried to help too much.”One of the key additions in that new group is her older sister Mariya, who transferred from the University of Louisville. After sitting all of last season due to transfer eligibility guidelines, Mariya Moore knocked down three 3-pointers en route to 11 points and five assists in her USC debut. “I was just trying to get back into the flow of things,” Mariya Moore said. “It felt good to be back.”Trakh had a similar reaction to the team’s performance.“To start how we started and win by 18 points,” Trakh said. “I think we’ve got a lot of potential on the team.”However, the Trojans start to the season was far from pretty, as they posted nine turnovers in the first half alone. Turnovers paired with anxious play on the defensive end led to a sloppy first 20 minutes of basketball.At one point in the second quarter, USC mishaps helped UC Riverside go on a 13-0 run and take its only lead of the night. However, the constant efforts of the Moore sisters accompanied by solid interior performances from junior forwards Kayla Overbeck and Ja’Tavia Tapley helped keep USC from falling in the team’s season opener to an overmatched UC Riverside team.Trakh and the Women of Troy suited up Tuesday without senior point guard Aliyah Mazyck. Defensive miscommunications and errant offensive passes were prominent in the senior floor general’s absence. Mazyck was a 2017-18 Pac-12 Defensive Player of the Year finalist and is expected to bring that same level of production along with her savvy veteran point guard presence when she returns.“I was happy with the win,” Trakh said. “We won that game tonight without Aliyah and Aliyah’s one of the top players in the Pac-12.”Next, Trojans will head south to face Long Beach State University Sunday at 2 p.m.last_img read more
