Grand home like a ‘Walt Disney Queenslander’

first_imgThis grand house looks old but its not – it is just 22 years old!BUILT on the site of General Douglas MacArthur’s home during the Pacific campaign, this ornate Victorian-style home is one of the most admired residences on the Brisbane River.Owned by doctors Chris and Tania Bradshaw, the grand riverfront estate was constructed in 1996, and comes with a five storey-high turret and dome which opens up for stargazing. It is listed with Ray White New Farm agent Christine Rudolph, who said the residence came with 60m of riverfront and the option to buy approximately 30m more from the State Government. Dr Tania Bradshaw said the grand house reminded of her childhood in England, where she grew up in a period house with grand high ceilings and elegant rooms.“It’s been the most wonderful family and party home but it is now time to downsize,” she said. “The house has a fairytale breathtaking appearance that leaves admirers in awe,” Ms Rudolph said.“Considered one Brisbane’s finest waterfront mansions, Nareke is a residence of impeccable quality and timeless distinction.”Other features include an electronic boat lift to raise a speedboat out of the water, a gas heated pool and a pontoon that has been anchored by a stainless steel cable in case of future flooding. Nareke may only be 22 years old but this property is packed full of traditional featuresCalled Nareke, it sits on a grand 3923sq m block, and makes an elegant statement with its high ceilings, ornate fretwork and views across to the University of Queensland. Like a luxury hotel, it has piped music throughout and is located within it’s own private rainforest.There is also the option to buy extra lots to its north and west.

The property also has ducted air conditioning with separate temperatures selectable for each bedroom, living room, dining room, lounge, granny flat, and guest house plus a temperature controlled 2000 bottle wine cellar.last_img read more

Russell stars with Gowran double

first_img Press Association Bonzo Bing faced a tough opponent in the 29 Gold Packages For Racing Rated Novice Hurdle in the shape of Willie Mullins’ classy mare Vicky De L’Oasis, who had been second in Graded company on her previous two starts. However, she was having to give 3lb away. Russell seemed to be going strongly when he produced Bill Harney’s improving six-year-old to challenge alongside the favourite over the final two flights, and the 4-1 shot always looked to be doing just about enough as he got home with half a length to spare. Harney said: “He’s a proper horse and got a good education from Davy today. “He’s not in love with that ground, but what horse would be? He’s still a shell and a baby and we won’t over-use him over hurdles – although then again we could get greedy! Chasing will be his job and he’ll go over fences next season.” The jockey initiated his double when he climbed aboard Upstager for the first time in the 19 Silver Packages For Racing Maiden Hurdle, taking it up going to the last on Pat Colville’s 10-1 shot. The gelding wasn’t too clever at the final flight but was able to maintain his momentum, and he held too many guns for the favourite Moonlight Boy as he forged four and a quarter lengths clear to win with some authority. The trainer said: “He’s an improving horse and handled the trip and ground well. “He needed a bit of racing to learn. He’ll probably go for a novice handicap next, maybe at Fairyhouse. He’ll go chasing next year – he’s bred to do that.” JP McManus was out of luck with Moonlight Boy, but the owner’s colours were carried to victory by Eddie Harty’s Sort It Out in the www.gowranpark.ie Handicap Hurdle. The 8-1 shot had plenty to do at the final flight but flew up the run-in under Alan Crowe to collar Leavethelighton and win by three-quarters of a length. center_img Champion jockey Davy Russell took the riding honours at Gowran Park with a double on Bonzo Bing and Upstager.last_img read more

Australian Open delay valid if smoke haze worsens: Novak Djokovic

first_imgSYDNEY: Novak Djokovic said Australian Open organizers should consider delaying the first Grand Slam of the year if haze from bushfires raging around the country threatens players’ health.The opening major of 2020 is due to start at Melbourne Park on January 20 and the city was blanketed by smoke from blazes burning to the east on Saturday, compromising air quality.Djokovic, president of the ATP players council, said in the early hours of Sunday that any delay would be a last resort, but it needed to be discussed.“I mean, it’s fair from you to say that (ask the question),” he said when pressed on the matter in Brisbane, where he is playing for Serbia in the inaugural ATP Cup team event.“Obviously, you have to always… because of some extreme weather and conditions, you just have to consider it.“But I think that’s probably the very, very last option for anything. I think they’re going to try to do anything to not delay in terms of days and when it starts.“I mean, and I understand why, but if it comes down to those conditions affecting the health of players, I think we should definitely consider it.”Catastrophic bushfires have been raging in Australia for weeks, leaving 24 dead and hundreds of properties destroyed.Tennis officials last week took the unprecedented decision to relocate the Canberra International — an ATP Challenger 125 event and on the women’s ITF World Tennis Tour, which serves as a stepping stone to the full tour.They said the play would not have been possible in the Australian capital which has been choked by smoke, with the tournament now due to start Monday at Bendigo in Victoria state.Djokovic said he had experienced air quality issues at tournaments in China, but the bushfires had created an unprecedented situation.The Serbian superstar said he not spoken to Tennis Australia chief Craig Tiley “but people from my team have”.“They’re obviously tracking the situation every single day as it’s evolving and hopefully calming down with the smoke and fires,” he said.“I think they will if it continues the same way and if the quality of air is affected… I think Tennis Australia probably will be forced to, I think, create some rules about it.“I mean, it’s tough for them because scheduling has to be respected in terms of play and the Australian Open starts at a certain time, so there’s a lot of different things involved. “But health is a concern for me and for anybody.” (IANS)Also Read: Rafael Nadal, Novak Djokovic makes winning start at ATP CupAlso Watch: Anti-CAA protests: Tinsukia District Congress demands release of party workerslast_img read more

For USC, in Rachel and Rebecca we trust

first_imgTo date, this has been the most  contentious opinion piece by the Daily Trojan Spring 2017 Editorial Board. We extensively interviewed each ticket for Undergraduate Student Government president and vice president, deliberated for hours and finally overcame a stiff gridlock in the editorial decision about which ticket best represents what we want to see in our student government. So this is by no means an easy endorsement to write. We strongly believe that all three tickets running to be USG president and vice president are extraordinary campus leaders, have a wealth of experience and encompass what it means to be a student at USC. However, we believe that next year’s USG president and vice president should be Rachel Udabe and Rebecca Harbeck.Last year, USG voter turnout dropped 39 percent. At a time in which national activism is at a crucial high, student involvement is at a crucial low. We have turned our tide from the energy and passion of administrations of past years to complacency and inactivity. Passion in students is there, but we need the right leaders to inspire it.That is why we want to see change in USG. That is why we believe Udabe and Harbeck will bring the organization the fresh perspective it needs to ultimately change the trajectory of our campus’ political culture.Transparency and accessibility are crucial issues not only within USC administration, but also within Undergraduate Student Government itself. Too many students feel disconnected with their campus representatives, are apathetic toward student government and lack awareness regarding the progress of administration initiatives and the part that they can play in the solution. It’s true that all three tickets mentioned transparency in one form or another in their platforms. But we liked Udabe and Harbeck’s position on accessible external office hours for USG members. More than that, we thought that their diverse experiences and status as USG outsiders will open up USG to all students and transform USG into a more student-centered, activist organization — into what student government entails on many other college campuses.Despite slow progress, pressing concerns including health services, sustainability, tuition rises, sexual assault, cultural expression and community inclusion still persist. With the advent of the Trump administration, many students worry about the impact of national policies and rhetoric and question how they can stand up for what they believe in. In the midst of these challenges, we believe Udabe and Harbeck can indeed, like their campaign promises, unite, strengthen and connect our campus.With backgrounds as Orientation Advisors, Residential Assistants, tour guides and student workers at the Jesse M. Unruh Institute of Politics, Udabe and Harbeck know diverse aspects of their community well. These experiences and perspectives will elevate diverse voices and issues and allow USG to formulate policy that works for all students. Moreover, at a time when greek life and sports often dominate the campus conversation, Udabe and Harbeck’s emphasis on supporting spring admits and transfer and international students through a mentorship program will ensure that some of the most forgotten populations of campus will have their voices heard.But Udabe and Harbeck must take crucial steps in order to become effective leaders in USG. They face a steep learning curve. They must revise their platform points, some of which are infeasible and reflect a lack of deep research and understanding of policymaking at USC. The candidates must do better to incorporate those who do have the institutional knowledge about what USG can and cannot do. The candidates must use the next three months to immerse themselves in the ins and outs of student government and continue to gain greater knowledge of campus issues and solutions if they hope to hit the ground running in August.They have great colleagues in their competitors. They should look to their opponents Austin Dunn and Morgan Monahan for their experience in USG and in policymaking hand-in-hand with the administration. They should look to their other opponents Daniel Million and Tim Vorhoff for innovative ideas, like the reassessing of the black house initiative and creation of a multicultural house to foster inclusion. In order to be the most effective leaders they can be, they will need to understand their shortcomings and work alongside their colleagues.Our hope is that Udabe and Harbeck will meet our vision, but the Daily Trojan will, as it has done in the past for every administration, continue to hold them accountable for providing the transformative leadership they have promised.We would be remiss if we did not note the symbolic significance of electing two women of color who have lived much of their USC career outside of the USG bureaucracy to the highest student-occupied office at USC. We are sending the message that we continue to embrace diverse leaders — in more ways than one — and that we continue to recognize their unique contributions to our campus.If we want change on our campus, we need to elect the changemakers. That’s why we are supporting the Rachel and Rebecca ticket for USG.Daily Trojan Spring 2017 Editorial Boardlast_img read more
