first_imgFirst home buyers are moving to new residentail estate Monterea Ripley in droves.The Monterea Ripley development has attracted first home buyers in droves, with Andrew Dixon and Ashleigh Greer the latest to realise their real estate dreams. First home buyers Andrew Dixon and Ashleigh Greer are looking forward to moving into their Monterea Ripley home next month. Mr Dixon, an earthmoving contractor, said a major appeal the estate for partner Ms Greer, a childcare worker, and himself was the amount of green space and the seclusion. FOCUS ON GREEN SPACE AT RIPLEY COMMUNITY RIPLEY’S GROWTH SET TO RAMP UP “We have found it to be a much more personal place than other developments in the area,” he said. “This is a great location which is so close to everything including the Ripley Town Centre and we have all the amenities we need and transport links.More from newsParks and wildlife the new lust-haves post coronavirus17 hours agoNoosa’s best beachfront penthouse is about to hit the market17 hours ago”We’re very excited about our first home.

Ocean current turbine demo scores more

Posted on by

first_imgA small-scale tidal current turbine demonstrator – being developed by Spanish Seaplace and UK’s Magnomatics – has achieved one third more efficiency during testing than had been previously predicted.A 6kW turbine demonstrator, with rotational speeds of up to 120 ppm, was recently tested at a facility in Madrid, where it achieved better results than anticipated, the developers said.The project is looking to harness the power of sea currents as an alternative energy source by designing a turbine with pseudo direct drive (PDD) technology to deliver high torque, low speed power for the machine.The design of the device being developed by the companies – a floating tension-tethered and self-steerable marine-current (FTMC) turbine – is said to allow the exploitation of marine currents in areas deeper than 60 meters, or in areas with irregular seabed where fixed devices are too expensive to deploy.The FTMC turbine put through its paces in a test basin (Photo: Seaplace) The Sheffield-based company developing magnetic gear technology Mangomatics was in charge of the PDD generator design, while the turbine itself was designed by the Spanish offshore engineering experts from Seaplace.Using kinetic energy of ocean currents as a means of generating power is a relatively young technology compared with developments in other fields of alternative power generation, according to Magnomatics.David Latimer, Magnomatics’ Chief Executive, said: “The possibilities presented by using ocean currents as an alternative energy source are far-reaching. The European Commission estimates that 0.1% of the energy content in ocean waves could be capable of supplying the entire world’s energy demand five times over.“Currently, energy harnessed from currents meets just 0.02% of the EU’s energy requirements.”The 32-month long project kicked off on April 1, 2016 – under the Eurostars Program, aimed at market-oriented transnational projects.The full-scale turbine will measure around 26 meters in diameter, with a propeller diameter of approximately 18 meters, with five blades to each propeller, according to Magnomatics.last_img read more

Controversial sugar dating company eyes NZ

Posted on by

first_imgNZ Herald 24 February 2019Family First Comment: Disturbing.“Family First’s Bob McCoskrie said relationships based on “purchasing a friendship” would always be problematic and artificial.”A company which links up older men offering younger women cash and other rewards in exchange for dates is looking to set up base in New Zealand.SugarBook runs a sugar dating app and claims to have 10,000 members signed up in New Zealand.Its Malaysian creator and chief executive Darren Chan, 31, said it wanted to extend its online service to set up an office in New Zealand and Australia because of the “rising trend of sugar relationships down under”.Critics say the arrangements are little different to prostitution and it has sparked concerns about young women being exploited and abused.Sugarbook is being watched by police in Singapore and accused of facilitating illegal prostitution in Malaysia.Sugar dating is where an older man or woman spends large amounts of money on a younger girlfriend or boyfriend in exchange for a relationship.Gifts received by sugar babies interviewed by the Herald on Sunday previously included breast enhancements, watches, handbags, business class travel and regular cash transfers.Dame Catherine Healy of the NZ Prostitutes Collective said sugar relationships were “just another form of sex work”.“They may be using a facade that sugar babies are not related to sex work … but sex is definitely a key element of sugar relationships,” she said.Healy believed a company promoting sugar relationships in New Zealand could be in breach of the Prostitution Reform Act. Under the law, it was illegal for people on temporary visas to provide commercial sexual services.Immigration New Zealand manager of visa services Michael Carley said payment of school fees, accommodation and presents in exchange for sex could in some circumstances be considered providing a sexual service and would be a breach of a temporary visa.Immigration also said there was no visa category that would allow a person, who was not a New Zealand citizen or resident, to invest in, direct, own or manage a commercial sex business.Bob McCoskrie of Family First said relationships based on “purchasing a friendship” would always be problematic and artificial.READ MORE: https://www.nzherald.co.nz/index.cfm?objectid=12199039&ref=twitterlast_img read more

Salah praised after Liverpool thrash Leicester

Posted on by

first_img(BBC) – MANAGER Jurgen Klopp called Liverpool’s reaction to going a goal down against Leicester the “best I’ve ever seen” after Mohamed Salah’s double helped them come from behind to win at Anfield.Jamie Vardy gave the visitors an early lead when he poked home from a Riyad Mahrez pass before Salah equalised in the second half.The Egypt international then turned Harry Maguire on the edge of the area before firing in his second of the day – and 17th Premier League goal of the season – to give Liverpool the lead.Klopp described the hosts’ performance as “perfect” and the Reds, who will finish the year in fourth place, extended their unbeaten run to 15 games.Leicester stay in eighth but have now gone five games without a victory.“On perfect days we win football games,” said Klopp.“The crowd were unbelievable and we needed them today to score these two goals. It’s a good team performance and a well-deserved win.”The only concern will surround the fitness of match-winner Salah, who Klopp said was “limping” when he was substituted with less than 10 minutes left to play.“We have to check it,” added the German. “We tried to change it as quick as possible and of course that is not too good.”last_img read more

What we learned from Syracuse basketball’s win over Elon

Posted on by

first_img Published on November 21, 2015 at 11:47 pm Syracuse (3-0) skated by another inferior opponent on Saturday, this time beating Elon (2-2), 66-55, in the Carrier Dome.The Orange shot a cold 2-for-8 from 3 in the first half and attacked the rim more in the second, which was the same adjustment it made against St. Bonaventure on Tuesday. And aside from the offense trending toward the paint, here are three things we learned from a game that, for Syracuse, was too close for too long.1. Trevor Cooney is still being guarded tightly, he’s just better at dealing with itCooney took just three 3s against Elon, making one in the second half on a kick-out from Michael Gbinije. But the fifth-year senior is adjusting his game accordingly, and going to the rim when teams take away his space on the perimeter.“That’s how it’s going to be, and I got that one open look and knocked it down which was good,” said Cooney, who finished eight points, six rebounds and four assists. “Overall, I’m happy that I was able to get to the rim and get to the basket and make plays. I just have to do it more often and try and find the open spots to try and get opportunities.”AdvertisementThis is placeholder textStill, it sounded like SU head coach Jim Boeheim wants to get Cooney more good looks from the outside in the coming games. That depends on a few factors, including the shooting of Gbinije and Malachi Richardson — who shot just 1-for-6 from 3 on Saturday — and SU’s bigs becoming more viable scoring threats in the low post. More production across the board will mean teams won’t be able to key on him, and it’s a dilemma he’s faced in past seasons.But the difference now is that Cooney is more comfortable with the ball and, consequentially, more comfortable taking on defenders off the dribble. Elon also didn’t switch on on-ball screens as frequently as St. Bonaventure did, which allowed Cooney to attack his recovering man in pick-and-roll situations.“We’re not getting him good looks,” Boeheim said. “Mike got him one good look and he made it. We’re just not getting him those. People are staying with him and sticking to him, and that’s when we’ve got to get other offensive production from other people.”2. Tyler Roberson can shoulder a rebounding load as Syracuse figures out center situationBoeheim bluntly said he didn’t see much out of Roberson in the Orange’s season-opening win over Lehigh, and the junior forward has since elevated his game.He turned in one of the best, if not the best, game of his college career against Elon, notching a double-double of 20 points and 16 rebounds. More importantly, Roberson’s nine defensive rebounds was a good sign for a team still figuring out how to manage minutes at center.“Well he’s got to rebound and play defense,” Boeheim said, simply outlining Roberson’s most important jobs. “We’re creating opportunities for him by him screening and rolling, getting out of the way and moving.”Starting center Dajuan Coleman, still getting back to form after missing 22 months to injury, played 10 minutes and grabbed just one rebound. Boeheim continually yelled at him from the bench to be more active on the glass. In Coleman’s place, freshman Tyler Lydon played 35 minutes and Boeheim admitted that the Phoenix took some advantage of his slim 210-pound frame.Lydon grabbed a respectable seven rebounds, but it was Roberson who carried the thin frontcourt.3. Boeheim wants to play Gbinije on the wing more, but doesn’t have the right guard depth Against the Bonnies, lineups with Gbinije playing the wing of the 2-3 zone were particularly effective defensively. Boeheim said after beating Elon that he wants to play Gbinije in that spot, but that his reserve guards aren’t allowing him to do so.Gbinije also picked up three first-half fouls, which didn’t allow his coach to tinker with his lineups as much.“Ideally if Mike stays out of foul trouble I’d like to see him at the forward a little bit, we’re better defensively that way,” Boeheim said. “But we have to get somebody playing better at the guard spot to do that. That’s a hope. Mike helps our defense when he’s back there.”The two off-the-bench guards are sophomore Kaleb Joseph and freshman Franklin Howard, both of whom played fewer than 10 minutes against the Phoenix.Joseph came into the season being touted by his coaches and teammates as an improved shooter, but his perimeter defense has kept his playing time to a minimum. Howard is still getting his feet wet in his first college season, and missed two field goals while scoring his only (and first career) point at the foul line in the first half.

I am still the captain but… Gyan

Posted on by

first_imgAl Ain and Black Stars striker Asamoah Gyan says he is still the substantive captain of the Black Stars despite relinquishing the captaincy to Sulley Muntari in Sunday’s crucial World Cup qualifier against Sudan.Gyan was named captain of the Black Stars ahead of the Nations Cup in South Africa, interestingly when the Stars walked onto the pitch from the dug-out for the game against Sudan it was Sulley Muntari who was leading the team.The switch had lots of journalists talking and asking whether the leader of the team had changed hands.Speculations were rife that Gyan may have given out the captain’s role to Muntari out respect to the AC Milan star who is one of the Senior players in the team.After a scintillating performance which saw the Black Stars run over Sudan by 4-0, Gyan had to clear the doubts over who is the captain of the Black Stars.He told journalists he is still the captain but had to give out the role to Muntari who was in the Black Stars before he came. “Sulley is one of the senior players in the team. I was appointed as the captain when he wasn’t around. He came to join the team and I have to show him some respect. He came to the National team before I came. But I am the captain of the team.“Today I was a bit superstitious to just give the captain to him,” he said.He added there is an understanding between he and Sulley as to who will captain the team at any given time,” he said.Citing examples in Barcelona and Manchester United, where the captain’s arm band is rotated somewhat, Gyan said the issue about captaincy should not be allowed to create any confusion in the team.Coach Kwasi Appiah appears to be in support of the arrangement between Gyan and Sulley.He told journalists at the press conference, being a captain means little, it is the commitment to die for the country. He said he is happy the two most senior players in the team understand each other and that will be crucial in guiding the young team and helping to build a formidable team for the future.Click here for all the pictures on the Ghana-Sudan match at the Kumasi Sports Stadiumlast_img read more

NBA trade rumors: Kings targeting Wizards SF Otto Porter Jr.

Posted on by

first_img Kings G Buddy Hield a critical part of Sacramento’s rebuild The Wizards are 8-13 this year and 1 1/2 games out of the eighth playoff spot. If the Wizards decide to have a fire sale and their tough start to the season continues, the Kings will be in line for Porter, who has two years remaining on the four-year, $106 million contract he signed last offseason. The Kings have their eye on Wizards small forward Otto Porter Jr. for the possibility of a trade, according to The Athletic.Sacramento is one of the more surprising teams in the NBA this season with a 10-11 record. The team sits a half game out of a playoff spot in the Western Conference.  The Kings have done this without a small forward to count on for much of the season. Iman Shumpert, Justin Jackson and Troy Williams have all seen playing time at the spot this year, but none has stood out.Porter is having somewhat of a down year for the Wizards as he is averaging 11.8 points, 5.3 rebounds and 2.0 assists, but according to The Athletic, the Kings have had their eye on the 2013 No. 3 overall pick and would like to have him on their team.
