There’s a whole “Lota’’ retro love in this bayside home

first_imgThe windows in the open plan living area offers views.The heart, however, is the kitchen. It’s an open-plan space that breathes life into the lounge and dining spaces.“It’s all solid timber,” Ms Holden said. “These new kitchens, you put water on them and they melt, but that’s just such a solid kitchen — you just couldn’t build cupboards like that nowadays.”The kitchen is also an archive, with a surprise waiting for the new owners in the cabinetry. “Inside the pantry door, you’ve got the kids’ height chart still there from the 1950s,” she said. “So it’s got this real historic feel to it — and it’s a home that the family just loved.”Ms Holden said there’s already been great response. The renovated Lota home.The home is being marketed through Haydn Meyer of Ray White Manly.It will be auctioned on-site Saturday, March 4, at 11am.

Focus on technology

first_img Here, Press Association Sport’s Damian Spellman takes a look at the way technology has been used to help officials in recent years. VIDEO EVIDENCE Football Association chairman Greg Dyke is to push for trials of video replay technology as the debate over refereeing standards rages on in the wake of Chelsea boss Jose Mourinho’s outspoken comments at the weekend. The Football Association has used video evidence for more than 30 years to help enforce the rules of the game. As far back as October 1983, Birmingham’s Noel Blake was banned for head-butting Aston Villa’s Steve McMahon at the end of a tempestuous derby, an incident which had gone unseen by the referee, but was captured by Central TV cameras. The huge increase in television coverage since means the vast majority of incidents are recorded – and disciplinary chiefs can use the footage in a number of ways. While all games are reviewed generally by the FA, a panel comprising former referees Eddie Wolstenholme, Steve Dunn and Alan Wiley rules on incidents not seen at the time by match officials, while other exceptional events can be referred to a regulatory commission. That was the case when Manchester City defender Ben Thatcher was banned for eight games with a further 15 suspended after knocking Portsmouth midfielder Pedro Mendes unconscious with a forearm smash in August 2006. Thatcher had only received a yellow card from referee Dermot Gallagher. RADIO COMMUNICATION FOR OFFICIALS Officials used the system for the first time at the 2006 World Cup finals in Germany with Keith Hackett, head of the Professional Game Match Officials Board, confirming in May of the same year that the technology would be used in the Premier League during the 2006-07 campaign. The system allows the referee, his assistants and the fourth official to stay in touch by way of wireless microphones and ear-pieces to alert each other to potential issues and seek clarification when required. GOAL-LINE TECHNOLOGY The goal decision system was introduced to the Barclays Premier League for the 2013-14 season as a result of Frank Lampard’s goal that never was for England against Germany at the 2010 World Cup finals. The Hawk-Eye technology uses 14 cameras and sends a signal to the referee’s watch and ear-piece within a second indicating if the ball has crossed the line. It was in place for the Community Shield clash between Manchester United and Wigan on August 11, 2013 prior to its introduction for all Premier League games the following weekend. Hawk-Eye was used for the first time at Emirates Stadium on August 17 when referee Anthony Taylor was alerted to the fact that Aston Villa midfielder Fabian Delph’s shot had not crossed the line after beating Arsenal goalkeeper Wojciech Szczesny and coming back off the post before rolling along the line. VANISHING SPRAY The Premier League announced on July 30, 2014 that it was to supply referees with the vanishing spray used successfully by match officials during that summer’s World Cup finals in Brazil. The spray, which allows a referee to mark both the point from which a free-kick is to be taken and the 10 yards into which defenders may not encroach, was used for the first time at the finals by Japanese referee Yuichi Nishimura during the hosts’ 3-1 victory over Croatia in Sao Paulo on June 12. Wembley was the first English stadium to witness its use during the Community Shield game between Arsenal and Manchester City on August 10 last year, and its use still raises a cheer from spectators more than six months on. VIDEO REPLAYS The Dutch Football Association (KNVB) is currently trialling video refereeing technology with 34 games having already taken place with an assistant monitoring, although as yet, not in communication with the match officials. A proposal to go live in next season’s KNVB Beker cup competition will be discussed by the International Football Association Board at its AGM in Belfast this weekend. center_img Press Associationlast_img read more

Trio set for Pre-Season Camp at Madureira Esporte Clube in Brazil

first_imgON the heels of a historic visit to Brazil last week where Guyana Football Federation (GFF) president Wayne Forde met with Brazilian Football Federation (Confederação Brasileira de Futebol – CBF) president Rogerio Caboclo, the partnership has already bearing fruits.The GFF, in a release, revealed that Ryan Hackett of Fruta Conquerors, Kelsey Benjamin (Georgetown Football Club) and Sese Norville of Milerock FC will spend one month at Brazilian second-division side, Madureira Esporte Clube where they will undergo pre-season training.The trio who have been part of the senior national Golden Jaguars set-up in recent times will be exposed to another level of training over a four-week period with the possibility of landing a Pro-Contract, based on their performances during that period.The young footballers were part of the historic Brazil Train and Play Camp last August when the senior national team spent two weeks there and played against the said club in a practice match.Speaking about the venture, president Forde said that this is the first of many initiatives and the goal of the GFF, (which has also presented an MoU to CBF president Rogerio Caboclo) is aimed at holistic development of the sport on and off the field of play, along with ensuring that as many as 40 players between the ages of 18 and 22 years gain exposure in Brazil over the coming months and years.“Ideally, we would prefer to have the players enter into the Brazilian Football system much younger, but unfortunately, language challenges, immigration laws and parental consideration are yet to be fully explored.”Forde maintained; “The GFF is very pleased that our work to develop a partnership with our Brazilian neighbours has started to bear fruit. This is a wonderful opportunity for the players ahead of our preparations for the Olympic Under-23 Qualifying competition in July. I would like to join the rest of Guyana in congratulating these players and wishing them every success whilst in Brazil.”President Forde also offered congratulations to the management of the respective clubs, Milerock FC, Georgetown Football Club and Fruta Conquerors, thanking them for the work they have put into moulding these players.He also indicated that the young Guyanese will likely feature in a friendly match in which Madureira Esporte Clube would play against the Qatar national team on June 9.Qatar and Japan were invited to play in the world’s oldest continental tournament – Copa America, the 46th edition of the event, which will be played in six stadiums across five cities in Brazil.The stadiums are Belo Horizonte, Porto Alegre, Rio de Janeiro, Salvador and Sao Paulo.The opening is set for the Morumbi Stadium (Sao Paulo) while the final will be held at the Maracaná Stadium (Rio de Janeiro).last_img read more

Hunt spikes ball near goal line to end 1st half as SU wastes scoring opportunity

first_imgThe chains were still being moved when Terrel Hunt spiked the ball at the Louisville 41-yard line.He had already tried to signal for a timeout he didn’t have on first-and-10, wasting crucial seconds. There were nine left in the second quarter and Syracuse was down by nine. After the spike, on second-and-10 he lofted a 39-yard pass between two defenders to Jarrod West, who fell at the Louisville 2.If SU was to spike the ball again, three seconds had to be run off, per a 2013 change to NCAA rules. But only two seconds remained. Hunt spiked it and the half ended.“We rushed judgment, we tried to spike it and we ran out of time,” SU head coach Scott Shafer said. “If we had had three we would’ve had a shot there.”The Orange (2-3, 0-1 Atlantic Coast) ultimately fell to Louisville (5-1, 3-1 Atlantic Coast) 28-6 on Friday night in front of 37,569 in the Carrier Dome. But the series of errors at the end of the first half cost SU a chance to close the gap on the Cardinals and enter halftime with momentum.AdvertisementThis is placeholder textHunt was not available to the media after the game as he was getting treatment.SU wide receiver Ben Lewis said his teammates knew they couldn’t spike the ball and simply got lost in the chaos.“I think we know the rule,” he said. “It was just a hectic situation and obviously next time we’ll handle it a lot better.” Comments Facebook Twitter Google+ Published on October 4, 2014 at 12:05 am Contact Jacob: jmklinge@syr.edu | @Jacob_Klinger_last_img read more

How Trevor Cooney is helping Syracuse score, without scoring himself

first_img Published on November 24, 2015 at 6:32 pm Contact Jesse: jcdoug01@syr.edu | @dougherty_jesse Facebook Twitter Google+ Before the season, Trevor Cooney was confident that a roster full of shooters would give him more opportunities to score.“I definitely think I, personally, can only benefit from us having more shooters this year,” Cooney said at Atlantic Coast Conference Basketball Media Day on Oct. 28. “The shots I am going to take are going to be better and the whole floor will be opened up for everybody to make more things happen. I think it will allow me to score more honestly.”But through Syracuse’s first three games, teams have stayed glued to Cooney on the perimeter despite the Orange’s other threats. In turn, he’s created for his teammates more than they’ve created for him. Heading into SU’s (3-0) 2:30 p.m. date with Charlotte (1-2) in the Battle 4 Atlantis tournament on Wednesday, the fifth-year senior has made just six of 20 3-pointers and is averaging a misleading 13 points per game.His scoring average is boosted by an 18-point game against St. Bonaventure in which he shot 8-of-11 from the free-throw line. As for scoring from the perimeter, Cooney’s opportunities have been limited and he’s been most effective going to the rim.“In years past I haven’t attacked the rim and I just settled with just passing the ball around,” Cooney said after Syracuse beat Elon, 66-55, on Saturday. “I’m happy to be aggressive and attacking, and it’s created a lot more for this team which is good.”AdvertisementThis is placeholder textIn the offseason, Cooney worked on his ball-handling with SU assistant coach Gerry McNamara. The drills were aimed at making Cooney, known as a spot-up a shooter, a more versatile scorer. He’s said that he feels much more comfortable putting the basketball on the floor.That was evident against Elon, when Cooney regularly attacked the rim in the second half. He missed his only 3-point attempt in the first half on a contested look, and his penetration helped the Orange score 10 points in the paint in the last 20 minutes. Cooney also saw a lapse in perimeter pressure on a Michael Gbinije drive, and knocked down an open 3.“Him getting to the rack, it opens things up for the bigs and the other guards,” Gbinije, SU’s starting point guard, said. “Teams aren’t expecting him to do that, they’re chasing him off the line and he’s going in there and that’s going to benefit us.”After Syracuse beat the Phoenix, head coach Jim Boeheim said the team isn’t getting Cooney enough good looks. And while that may be true so far this season, this year’s Orange is reliant on Cooney and more likely to benefit from the attention he draws.When teams blanketed him last year, it created opportunities for Ron Patterson, Kaleb Joseph and a timid Tyler Roberson. But when Elon switched on every first-half down screen Syracuse gave Cooney, Roberson found mismatches and open space, and finished with a career-high 20 points.In the coming games, teams that pressure Cooney will also hand jump shots to Gbinije and freshman Malachi Richardson. Then he can drive to the basket and the offense will open up more.“I would hope guys guard me the same way as they did last year,” Cooney added in October, “and that will create even more things for other people.”So far that’s what’s happened. It hasn’t led to more points on his stat lines, but will have unseen effects on others. Commentslast_img read more

NHL rumors 2019: Will the league ever return to the Olympics?

first_imgAfter allowing its players to participate in five Winter Olympics from 1998 to 2012, the National Hockey League opted out of the 2018 Pyeongchang Games. The league issued a statement in April 2017 indicating the majority of its owners were opposed to Olympic participation for a number of reasons, the biggest being the 17-day disruption to the regular-season schedule.That opinion still prevails two years later. In a press conference last week during the NHL Global Series in Stockholm, Sweden, league commissioner Gary Bettman said going to the Olympics remained “incredibly disruptive” to the season. Participation in the 2022 Beijing Games means convincing Bettman and the teams’ owners during the ongoing CBA negotiations. That seems impossibles unless the IOC is willing to make the NHL a co-sponsor in future Olympic tournaments.The International Ice Hockey Federation could try to broker a deal between the two sides. How much influence it has seems debatable. The IIHF offered to pick up the travel, accommodation and insurance costs for the PyeongChang Games but that pitch was rejected by the NHL.Bettman acknowledged it was a complicated issue, one the players association and the IIHF continue to raise with the league. Unless the IOC agrees to a new deal that addressed the costs for player participation and allows the league a bigger cut of the revenue, don’t expect to see NHL stars skating in future Winter Olympics. MORE: Bettman on Olympics being ‘disruptive’ to the NHLDuring recent collective bargaining talks between the league and the NHL Players Association, reports indicated the players remain keen to return to Olympic competition. This issue could become a potential stumbling block toward extending the current CBA beyond its Sept.15, 2022 expiration.The league also cites concerns over loss of revenue during the Olympic break and injury to key players affecting teams’ chances to qualify for the playoffs.Location of the Games could also be an issue. The 2002 Salt Lake City and 2010 Vancouver Olympics drew considerable interest among North American TV viewers. Those staged in Nagano (1998), Turin (2006) and Sochi (2014) did less well, in part because the time zones made it difficult for televised games during North American prime time hours.Money, however, is the crux of the matter. Unlike previous Winter Olympics, the International Olympic Committee declined to cover the estimated $20 million for travel, accommodation and insurance costs for NHL players to take part in the Pyeongchang Games. The IOC also forbids the league from promoting its participation in the Games.In other words, the IOC is happy to have the NHL’s best players in the Winter Olympics but are unwilling to pick up the tab or share sponsorship and media revenue.Stuck in the middle, of course, are the players. They could refuse to sign off on a new CBA if the league maintains its stance against the Olympics. Doing so, however, could jeopardize their efforts to reduce escrow claw-backs from their paychecks and improved pension and medical benefits.last_img read more
