Cruise ships told to leave Australian waters to avoid coronavirus “fiasco” repeat

Posted on by

first_imgTopics : Two cruise ships off the coast of Western Australia have been told to “immediately” leave Australian waters, after the country’s worst outbreak of the coronavirus was traced to a cruise liner that docked in Sydney Harbour last week.Cruise ships have become a flash point for the epidemic in Australia after 147 of 2,700 passengers who disembarked from the Ruby Princess cruise ship in Sydney later tested positive for COVID-19.The outbreak from the Ruby Princess represents the country’s worst cluster of the virus, and has sparked anger over why passengers, more than a dozen showing flu-like symptoms, were cleared to disembark without basic health checks. State authorities have clashed with the central government over the handling of the issue, adding to tensions over matters including virus testing and school closures as the number of cases rapidly rises above 2,550, with 12 dead.On Thursday, seven of 800 foreign passengers on board the German-operated MV Artania tested positive for COVID-19, and two more were unwell.West Australian premier Mark McGowan said no one would be permitted to disembark the Artania unless there was a “life threatening emergency”.“This ship needs to leave immediately,” he said, “Our position is clear, we are not going to have a Sydney Harbor fiasco on our watch.”center_img The premier said he discussing with federal authorities whether ill passengers could be air-lifted to a military base or similar for treatment.A second cruise ship, the MSC Magnifica, which refueled in Perth this week, is currently in Western Australian waters after being refused entry in Dubai.The premier said no passengers on board were ill and arrangements were being made for it to travel to Europe or another port.A spokeswoman for MSC Cruises which owns the Magnifica declined to comment on where the vessel would go.Western Australia is preparing Rottnest island, a former prison island turned tourist attraction, to quarantine some of the 800 Australians on board a third cruise ship, the British-operated Vasco de Gama.The Vasco da Gama was scheduled to dock in Perth on Friday morning but will instead arrive on Monday to allow time for arrangements to be made on Rottnest island. More than 100 other passengers, from Britain and New Zealand will be quarantined on the ship.Germany’s Phoenix Reisen, owner of the Artania and Britain’s Cruise & Maritime Voyages, which owns the Vasco da Gama, was not immediately available for comment.Stricter lockdownsWith the number of COVID-19 cases rising quickly, Australia is poised for stricter lockdowns as the shock from the global pandemic hits the economy hard.Long queues have continued to spool around welfare offices across the country, while more than a quarter of a million Australians registered for financial help on Wednesday, according to the government services minister.The closure of non-essential services such as bars, restaurants, gyms and cinemas, has left hundreds of thousands instantly unemployed.Flight Centre on Thursday said a third of its 20,000 strong workforce faced temporary or permanent redundancy, while retail tycoon Solomon Lew’s Premier Investments Ltd temporarily closed all stores in Australia.last_img read more

Incredible renovation of 1980s Mater prize home

Posted on by

first_img33 Flockton St, Stafford Heights, Brisbane.This Mater Prize Home — the height of luxury in the 1980s — has been jettisoned into the 21st century with an unbelievable makeover.The home was valued at $140,000 in the 1980s and was Mater Prize Home Number 144 with tickets offered in books for $5 or $10. Located within the sought-after 15km ring around Brisbane, the home now has a new lease on life.The solid bones of the Mater Prize home were given a Hamptons style makeover by every one of the Maloneys — the family that owns it.“I project managed and was the wallpaper stripper and landscaper and I had a builder do the bathrooms and kitchen for us,” said owner Jim Maloney. A press clipping of the side veranda area in the 1980s. New flooring, a whitewash, new light fixtures all add up to a fresh Hamptons feel. MORE: How Rafter land became million-dollar flip MORE: This is the Year of the Reno Hard to believe there’s anything 80s about this.“This is an early version of a wall garden and we decided to paint it and keep it as is, and the workbench for potting plants we covered with recycled timber to give it a rustic feel.“This is definitely a good family home.”Agents Ashley Horswill and Nicholas Loftus of Urban Property Agents Paddington have it listed at offers over $799,000. Next came the new kitchen and bathrooms and the house was painted white.“We ummed and ahhed about the original round windows,” he said.“They are unique and we thought they fitted the Hamptons brief being circular so we plasterboarded around them, simplified them a little bit more and now people comment on them straight away.”But some things have remained untouched, like the back retaining wall with besser blocks turned the opposite way so plants can be potted in them. The back area with the blocks for planting — way ahead of the vertical gardening trend.They believe the 782 sqm block in a “prestigious pocket of Stafford Heights” “offers quality on a grand scale”.“Exhibiting Hamptons style luxury in every aspect, this 1980s Mater prize home has been completely transformed to create a modern day haven for the whole family,” was how it was described.The property is for sale by private treaty. The home was given a Hamptons style feel outside and in.“The kids helped early on with the bedrooms, stripping wallpapers and painting the walls.“They earned a bit of extra pocket money that way.”The Moloney family has renovated townhouses and built from scratch, but 33 Flockton Street, Stafford Heights was their first flip house.Mr Maloney said his family has “never renovated to sell before”.“It was a big one to take on but it was worth doing. We intended to do it in the two years,” he said.The facade was the first to be changed, pulling out the ornate Italian style posts and replacing them with clean square posts to begin the Hamptons style renovation. The circular glass feature walls at the entry were original to the house — just given a fresh treatment and paint job.

Is It EVER OK To Date a Friend’s Ex?

Posted on by

first_imgLifestyleRelationships Is It EVER OK To Date a Friend’s Ex? by: – September 26, 2011 32 Views   no discussions Tweet Share Sharecenter_img You’ve finally met the perfect guy. Too bad he’s already dated your friend! So is he totally off limits? Or is there a way to turn “sloppy seconds” into a real relationship that even your friend can support?We asked Jennifer Oikle, Ph.D., relationship psychologist, dating coach, and founder of MySoulmateSolution.com what you need to consider before dating a friend’s ex. The number one rule, she says, is respect.“Men may come and go, but friendships are rooted in trust. So whether or not it’s cool to date your friend’s ex is entirely dependent on your relationship with her and how she feels about it.”First, she suggests, ask yourself what kind of relationship this guy had with your friend. Was it just a quick fling or were they planning to walk down the aisle? Also, what’s your personal interest level going in? Do you think he could be “the one” or are you just looking to have some fun?Next, have a conversation with your friend–and let her know your intentions. Dr. Oikle says if it’s just a casual friend, you might simply inform her you plan to date her ex. But a close friend requires a little more. “I feel like if you are good friends, then permission should be obtained because you already have a real relationship with her–you just hope for a relationship with the guy. So, the first relationship should take precedence–getting the respect it deserves.”Of course, don’t be surprised if she doesn’t approve. “Some people think it’s never OK for a friend to date their ex, others think it’s fine, others think it depends,” says Dr. Oikle.In any case, avoid the temptation to sneak around behind her back. “Because she is always going to find out–and the feelings of being betrayed are always worse and more difficult to forgive and get over than whatever the behavior was to begin with,” she insists. “They might have been OK with you dating him, but can’t forgive your dishonesty–because that changes the whole level of trust and respect in the relationship.”It may just be a matter of time–waiting until your friend feels “over” her ex, “when they can think and talk about him without triggering a reactive emotional response.” If not, and she still has feelings, “it may be just way too painful to continue the friendship, even if she agrees for you to go ahead from her logical side.”One thing to keep in mind–breakups have ups and downs–which means she could feel “over him” one day and not the next.“The most important thing is to stay sensitive to your friend and stay empathic to her feel Share Sharing is caring!last_img read more

National Bank GM says his nationality should not be an issue.

first_img Sharing is caring! Share Share LocalNews National Bank GM says his nationality should not be an issue. by: – May 7, 2011 Tweetcenter_img Share 19 Views   no discussions General Manager of the National Bank of Dominica, Micheal Bird says his nationality should not be an issue when it comes to handling the affairs of the bank.The Jamaican national says what is important is his ability to confidently handle the affairs of the bank.“I personally don’t think so. I think it is more on does the person have the ability to do the job and does the customer base, the shareholders and staff trust that person to do the job? Thats what really drives it. Now I would think that one is firstly from the region because you can appreciate how business is done. Some of the things that we do aren’t necessarily in, they’re slightly different from how things are done in Europe or in North America. So I think having a lot of experience in the region adds a lot to that equation. It would be nice I presume but I as a non-national I have to think what can I bring to the company? The experiences that I have gained working in the region I think adds a little credence to that.”Click here to listen to audio: Mr. Bird also said that will be leading a customer centered approach to management of the bank as customer satisfaction has a major role to play in the success of the bank.Dominica Vibes Newslast_img read more

Further players join Kaymer chase

Posted on by

first_img Rickie Fowler and Erik Compton were the only players to break par in Saturday’s third round, matching scores of 67 lifting them into second place on three under par, five shots behind Kaymer. But with the course playing easier on Sunday thanks to watering of the greens overnight and in the morning, three of the first nine players to complete their final rounds shot below 70. England’s Matt Fitzpatrick, the only amateur to make the cut before competing as a professional in next week’s Irish Open, carded a 69, while playing partner and former Open champion Louis Oosthuizen bogeyed the last for a 67. American Daniel Berger went one better with a 66, the 21-year-old covering the back nine in 32 despite a bogey on the 14th to finish seven over par, all the damage done by a third round of 78. Out on the course, former Masters champion Zach Johnson had recorded the first hole-in-one of the week on the ninth, his tee shot pitching well left of the flag but catching a slope and rolling 20 feet into the hole. England’s Ian Poulter had birdied the first and fifth to move to two over par, while American JB Holmes had picked up shots on the same holes to move into the top 10 on one over. The last man to lose a five-shot lead after 54 holes of a US Open was Mike Brady in 1919, but just two of the last nine leaders after three rounds had gone on to win the title – Tiger Woods in 2008 and Rory McIlroy in 2011. Kaymer and Fowler made up the final pairing at 3:25pm local time, with the 34-year-old Compton – who has undergone two heart transplants – alongside Sweden’s Henrik Stenson, who was six off the pace on two under. Stenson would overtake Adam Scott as world number one by claiming his first major title, as long as Scott finished outside the top four. Defending champion Justin Rose had conceded he was playing for second place after starting the day nine shots off the lead, but an eagle from 25 feet on the fifth lifted him to one under par for the tournament. That was seven behind Kaymer after he opened with two pars, while Stenson had joined the group in second on three under with a birdie on the third, where the tee had been brought forward to tempt players into trying to drive the green. Press Associationcenter_img Martin Kaymer soon had extra reasons to be looking anxiously over his shoulder in the final round of the US Open at Pinehurst.last_img read more
