5/461 Adelaide Street, BrisbaneThere are definite advantages to not living in the penthouse of an apartment block, especially if you don’t like heights.Denise Rees knows this all too well, which is why when looking for an inner-city apartment fives years ago, she was elated to find there was one available on a lower floor of the coveted Hudson building on Brisbane’s Adelaide Street.The convenience of being able to duck across the road without having to wait for a lift or drive in endless spirals through a car park is part of what attracted her to the apartment.“I was going to look at one in Mary Street, but it was on the 39th floor,” Ms Rees said. “If I wanted to duck out for a paper or a coffee I would have had to add another quarter of an hour to my trip. Here, I can just duck across the road and it’s all very quick. There are tasteful touches of animal print incorporated into the decor.“When you are so high, you can’t see the river unless you go and stand out on the balcony, and I hate heights. Being on a lower floor means you can see the river without having to go outside.”Ms Rees said Brisbane was a very walkable city and the apartment’s central location made it easy for her to take early morning strolls along the riverside.“To be able to walk from my place and go up Queen Street, over the bridge to South Bank, walk around there and then up to the botanical gardens and on to Eagle Street Pier before heading home is just lovely,” she said. “I have so many photos I have taken early in the morning when the water on the river is so still it’s like glass.”The other thing that Ms Rees loves about the apartment is its size. Taking up and entire floor and measuring 241sq m it rivals many family homes when it comes to space. The large kitchen and entryway.“I loved it as soon as I walked in, the position the size” says Ms Rees. “I was lucky to find it. I had been looking for quite a while, but when I gauged the space and the lovely open balcony, where you feel like you’re outside, I knew it was for me.”Beautiful as the apartment was, Ms Rees says she wanted to put her mark on it and so in 2016 she went about making some changes to the floor plan and decor.Working with a designer from Darren James interiors, who Ms Rees says she once worked for, she set about ripping out doors and rearranging walls to accommodate things such as a larger powder room.Walking through the apartment it is evident Ms Rees has a love of animals, with touches of animal print appearing throughout the space; a giraffe peeping out from a recess in the kitchen island bench, a tiger print rug on the floor, a leopard print accent chair in the living room. The open-plan living spaces bring the outside inside.Used incorrectly animal print can be gaudy, but not here, where Ms Rees has applied it with careful and considered taste.“I’ve always liked animal prints and had animals around me,” Ms Rees said. “I worked as a fashion buyer for David Jones for a few years and when I left they gave me a lovely China zebra. Gifts would always be around animals.”There are plenty of considered details throughout the apartment which has three bedrooms, with the over-sized master suite having an ensuite, large walk-in wardrobe, river views and access to the large front balcony.

With the doors open you feel like your outdoors, but your indoors, its such a great space,” Ms Rees said.“Even the back balcony is a nice place to sit. In the winter the sun goes around the building so it’s lovely and warm and such a nice place to just sit and read the paper.”Apartments in the Hudson building do not come up very often, which Ms Rees said is because of the privacy and the fact that the building is well managed, with security and maintenance of the highest level. The apartment is convenient for city living.One lucky buyer will have the opportunity to join the fold, as Ms Rees, who is retired, has decided it is time to move on to the next chapter in her life.She has put the apartment on the market and it is open to expressions of interest through Brandon Wortley and Daniel Lazzaroni or Ray White Bulimba.

The squad also includes Manly Sea Eagles second-rower James Hasson, who is still waiting to hear if he will play in Sunday’s NRL Grand Final against Sydney Roosters. Hasson, who was born in Hillingdon, west London, joined the Sea Eagles at the start of this season after failing to secure a new deal with Cronulla and has so far made 12 appearances off the bench. He has been included in Manly’s 19-man squad following the injury sustained by Richard Fa’aoso (broken neck). Ireland’s other NRL-based players are New Zealand-born stand-off Apirana Pewhairangi, 21, who joined Parramatta at the start of this year and made his debut against Brisbane in May, and hooker Rory Kostjasyn, 26, who made his debut for Melbourne in the 2010 World Club Challenge against Leeds. Also in the squad is centre Joshua Toole, who made his debut for Ireland in last year’s matches against Scotland and England Knights and is currently playing for Illawarra Cutters. The big names from Super League include Wigan’s 2010 Man of Steel Pat Richards, Catalan Dragons winger Damien Blanch and the Grix brothers, Scott and Simon, who return to the squad for the first time since 2010, while Warrington second-rower Ben Currie has opted for Ireland ahead of England. The team will be captained by Featherstone half-back Liam Finn, who is one of nine survivors from the side that went within 80 minutes of reaching the semi-finals in 2008. There are nine uncapped players, although Huddersfield prop Anthony Mullally, Widnes second-rower Kurt Haggerty and Warrington forward Danny Bridge all played in a friendly against England Knights last season. Aston said: “I am really pleased with the squad we have named, which is a combination of experience and younger up and coming players from both hemispheres. They include Canberra Raiders’ former Kangaroos prop Brett White, 31, who played against England in the 2009 Four Nations Series final at Elland Road. White, who also played eight times for New South Wales in State of Origin, was named in Ireland’s squad for the last World Cup in 2008 but pulled out in order to have foot surgery. Ireland coach Mark Aston has included five Australia-based players in his 24-man squad for the World Cup. Press Association “I am confident that we are fully equipped to be competitive in what is a really tough group, and we are really looking forward to the challenge ahead against three of the best teams in the world.” Aston has opted not to play a warm-up match and will take his squad into camp in Preston to prepare for their opening game against Fiji, the team that knocked them out five years ago, in Rochdale on October 28. They also face England and Australia in their group. Ireland squad: Dave Allen (Widnes), Luke Ambler (Halifax), Bob Beswick (Leigh), Damien Blanch (Catalan Dragons), Danny Bridge (Warrington), Ben Currie (Warrington), Liam Finn (Featherstone, capt), Simon Finnigan (Leigh), Scott Grix (Huddersfield), Simon Grix (Warrington), Kurt Haggerty (Barrow), James Hasson (Manly), Rory Kostjasyn (North Queensland), Stuart Littler (Leigh), Tyrone McCarthy (Warrington), James Mendeika (Swinton), Anthony Mullally (Huddersfield), Eamon O’Carroll (Widnes), Apirana Pewhairangi (Parramatta), Pat Richards (Wigan), Colton Roche (Sheffield), Marc Sneyd (Salford), Josh Toole (St George Illawarra), Brett White (Canberra).

Syracuse (1-1, 0-1 Atlantic Coast) played competitively with No. 13 Louisville (2-0, 1-0) for the middle part of Friday’s game, but UofL outplayed SU for the rest of the contest. Louisville went up 21-0 within the first five minutes of the game and ultimately won, 62-28.Here’s a look at where some players and units stood out.Stock upAmba Etta-Tawo, redshirt senior wide receiverIt’s hard to think that Amba Etta-Tawo’s stock could’ve risen at all after catching 12 passes for 210 yards and a touchdown in the season opener against Colgate. He was even named the conference receiver of the week for his efforts. In Week 2, Etta-Tawo hauled in 12 catches for 103 yards and two scores against a much better Louisville defense. He was an outlet for quarterback Eric Dungey on broken plays and rollouts.AdvertisementThis is placeholder textThe most important thing to note here is the consistency. One game could’ve been a fluke, but through two weeks he’s one of only two players in the nation with more than 300 receiving yards.Parris Bennett, junior linebackerThere were plays where Parris Bennett looked bad — particularly one where a missed arm tackle at about the 10-yard line resulted in a Louisville touchdown and left Bennett face first in the turf, smacking his hand on the ground. But that applies to nearly everyone on defense on Friday.Despite his miscues, Bennett forced two fumbles — one of which was in the red zone — and finish second on the team with seven tackles.Syracuse’s conditioning and tempoFour separate times — three times in the red zone — Louisville players fell to the ground with what looked like cramps while Syracuse was quickly driving. The Orange’s offense and defense did not have any of the same problems. SU head coach Dino Babers was upset with the stoppages. After the game, Syracuse defensive tackle Steven Clark said he thought some of the instances were fake.Stock downSyracuse’s secondaryOn the first play from scrimmage, Louisville dual-threat quarterback Lamar Jackson hit receiver James Quick up the seam on the left side for a 72-yard touchdown pass. Quick burned Syracuse safety Antwan Cordy up the middle of the field. Two offensive plays for the Cardinals later, Jackson found receiver Jaylen Smith on a similar route, just on the other side of the field. Smith got inside safety Kielan Whitner for the 61-yard catch. Whitner described it as a “nightmare” scenario for the SU defense. Jackson picked apart the zones, and receivers often ran open across the middle of the field.To make matters worse, Cordy, a starting safety, and Juwan Dowels, a starting cornerback, were both injured in the game and did not return. With cornerback Wayne Morgan still recovering from an injury in training camp and safety Devon Clarke coming off one as well, SU is very thin at defensive back.Jordan Fredericks, sophomore running backJordan Fredericks is listed as the No. 2 running back on the depth chart, but it’s clear he’s not the No. 2 option. The Orange has opted for a rushing attack of primarily Dontae Strickland and Moe Neal. Fredericks had the longest run of the day (29 yards) but got only three carries — all in the fourth quarter when the score was already 62-28. His time in the backfield prior to that consisted mostly of blocking assignments.Fredericks was the No. 1 running back a year ago but lost the spot to Strickland after gaining weight and suffering an injury in the spring.

Source: Graphic Sports Former World Boxing Organisation (WBO) super bantamweight, Isaac “Royal Storm” Dogboe, has begun training under the tutelage of renowned coach, Freddy Roach, as he looked to revive his career.Dogboe is looking to come back stronger from two consecutive defeats to Emanuel Navarrete which saw the Ghanaian losing his WBO title to Mexico’s Navarrete in the process.The 24-year-old hard-hitting pugilist has joined the camp of Roach who trains legendary Filipino boxer Manny Pacquaio after his father and trainer, Paul Dogboe, quit his role with his son in a move to allow a much experienced trainer take over.In an interview with BoxingGhana, Paul confirmed that Dogboe has teamed up with Roach in his famed Wild Card Boxing Club in Hollywood, California.“Yes, Dogboe is officially at the camp of Freddie Roach”, Paul said in an interview with the website.The 59-year-old Roach remains one of the best trainers in history of the sport having trained the likes of Manny Pacquaio, Oscar de la Hoya and Mike Tyson with his achievements in the sport earning him a World Boxing Hall of Fame status.Roach recently spearheaded Pacquiao’s victory over former World Boxing Association (WBA) Super Welterweight champion Keith Thurman on July 20 at the MGM Grand, Las Vegas in Nevada.
Move over Luis Suarez, there’s a new biter in town.Lazio defender Patric was sent off for biting an opponent in a Serie A game on Tuesday.Patric was captured sinking his teeth into the arm of Lecce player Guilo Donati.The referee did not see the incident but sent off Patric after a review by the Video Assistant Referee (VAR).There are suggestions that Patric could face a lengthy ban, particularly due to the strict COVID-19 protocols the players are expected to adhere to.Second-placed Lazio who has been seriously challenging Juventus for the title prior to the lockdown have fallen off the pace since the resumption of the season.They are now seven points of the top having won just two out of their five matches since the restart, including last night’s 2-1 loss to Lecce.Take a look at a video of the incident and the reaction on social media below.

Franklin)ExpandPHOENIX — For 22 starts over four months, Hyun-Jin Ryu had handled major-league hitters like a Jedi master.These aren’t the pitches you’re looking for.That spell has been broken. Ryu was roughed for the third consecutive start Thursday night, allowing seven runs in a two-inning span as the Arizona Diamondbacks handed the Dodgers an 11-5 thumping.With the loss, the Dodgers’ magic number to clinch their seventh consecutive division title stayed at nine. How Dodgers pitcher Ross Stripling topped the baseball podcast empire Cody Bellinger homer gives Dodgers their first walkoff win of season Dodgers hit seven home runs, sweep Colorado Rockies After his first start this month, Ryu had an ERA of 1.45, almost a run better than any other starting pitcher in baseball. He had allowed more than two runs in a start just once. His WHIP was 0.91 and opposing batters had hit just .221 against him.The 32-year-old Korean was cruising to a Cy Young award and Game 1 start in the postseason. The course correction over the past three starts has been jarring.Over starts at Atlanta, at home against the Yankees and in Arizona, Ryu has given up 18 runs in just 14-2/3 innings – an ERA of 11.05 that has fattened his season mark by nearly a run to 2.35 (bringing Max Scherzer, Mike Soroka and Jacob deGrom back into the Cy Young picture), the highest it has been since before his May 7 start. His WHIP in those three starts is 1.91 and opposing batters have hit a robust .368 (25 for 68). Ryu hasn’t gotten through five innings in each of his past two starts.Despite the fact that Ryu has thrown 157-1/3 innings already this season – his highest total since throwing 192 in his MLB debut season (2013) – Ryu and Dodgers manager Dave Roberts have said fatigue is not a factor in his current regression. Roberts has just said Ryu hasn’t been as “sharp.”Well, at least Ryu didn’t give up a home run to the Diamondbacks after allowing five in his previous two starts. Joe Kelly handled that surrendering a towering three-run shot to Eduardo Escobar in the sixth inning, part of Kelly’s own regressive performance. It was the first home run he has allowed since July 27 and the first time he has been charged with more than one run in an outing since May 27. Escobar’s drive came to rest in a garbage can near the pool beyond the right-field fence – no doubt where Ryu would like to toss the box score from this one.Instead of the longball, Ryu gave up nine hits in the fourth and fifth innings – six singles and three doubles – hit a batter and walked a batter (intentionally) while retiring just five before being pulled from the game.The Dodgers’ offense kept up for a while. The Dodgers walked six times in the first five innings and scored four times. But they also stranded eight runners in the first six innings, left the bases loaded in the third and only got one run out of another bases-loaded, one-out situation in the fifth.They solved that deficiency by getting just one baserunner in the final three innings – on a solo home run by Justin Turner (his third RBI of the game).More to come on this story.
