Full of character and natural charm, this cute Moroccan-inspired cottage offers cool living conditions.“After a rocky 2019, I think there’s some clear skies ahead,” he said. “The beginning of last year was pretty poor in regards to volume. It started to pick up in the second part of the year though.“There is a shortage of listing stock out there and we are seeing increased buyer inquiry in the $300,000 to 450,000 price range.“Not only that, we are seeing some of the highest rents in Cairns in recorded history so it actually works out more economical to purchase a home.” 10 Etty St, Kewarra Beach. Buyers in the $400,000s. Low maintenance in a sought-after location with an open plan interior and a clever versatile floorplan.Mr Latham said a lull in the market over the Christmas break and stable prices meant it would be easy for a first-timer to buy.“Interest rates are expected to go down again this year so it makes much more sense to buy a property,” he said.

When it comes to the Stag field, where Jadestone took over operatorship from Quadrant in July 2017, Jadestone achieved 100% facility uptime during the third quarter of 2018. Due to this higher uptime, average production from Stag during 3Q was 3,080 bbls/d (Q2 2018: 2,814 bbls/d).The company is continuing to pursue opportunities to enhance value at Stag, including drilling its first infill well. The well location and drilling slot have been selected and well design is in advanced planning stages. Based on the latest rig schedule information, the well is now expected to be drilled in the first half of 2019.Jadestone had two crude oil liftings from Stag during the third quarter, for a total sales production of 422,267 bbls, which is more than double the sales volume from a single lifting in the June 2018 quarter. This has resulted in substantially higher revenue during the quarter, and although it has also resulted in an increase in production costs, on a per unit basis, Stag opex has fallen to $30.13/bbl from $33.09 in the June quarter.Offshore Energy Today Staff Stag well location selected Singapore-based Jadestone Energy has made plans to start an infill drilling program at its assets located offshore Australia in 2019. Jadestone is the 100% owner and operator of the producing Stag oil field and the 100% owner of the producing Montara project, both located offshore Western Australia. Both assets include oil producing fields, with further development and exploration potential.As previously reported, Montara production was halted at the beginning of November to undertake an inspection and maintenance shutdown, with a focus on clearing a backlog of inspection tasks.Jadestone said on Wednesday that the maintenance work is progressing smoothly and the company anticipates the operator will restart production operations in early December.To remind, Jadestone bought the Montara field from Thailand’s PTTEP earlier this year but the Thai company remains the operator during a transition period, in line with the normal regulatory approval process for operatorship transfer. Since the start of transition, which started early last month, Jadestone has identified a backlog of maintenance and inspection activities that need to be addressed, and a decision was taken to undertake a voluntary shutdown from November 1, 2018 to undertake the required work.Jadestone previously said that, following this shut-down event, further major planned maintenance shutdowns would not be required until at least the second half of 2020.In an update on Wednesday Jadestone stated that the infill drilling at Montara will begin following completion of regulatory approvals, which are anticipated in the first half of 2019, at which time Jadestone will become the operator.Jadestone President and CEO, Paul Blakeley, said that the company’s acquisition of the Montara assets just before the end of the third quarter, has resulted in a three-fold increase in the size of its business. Montara’s production during the third quarter 2018 was 7,585 bbls/d.
On a rain-affected day in Belfast, Steve Smith started life as Michael Clarke’s successor with a 23-run success on Duckworth/Lewis. Smith opted to bat first and a century opening stand between David Warner (84) and debutant Joe Burns (69) helped them to post 222 for six in the 40.2 overs that were possible. Australia defeated a spirited Ireland in their first one-day international since winning the World Cup. Ireland’s eventual target after rain delays was 181 in 24 overs but they were dismissed for 157 as Nathan Coulter-Nile claimed three for 13. Man-of-the-match Warner and his new partner Burns put on 139 in a dominant onslaught, scoring at 6.36 runs an over before Craig Young dismissed the latter. Australia never quite enjoyed the same comfort thereafter, Tim Murtagh nipping out Warner and George Bailey, with Andy McBrine adding Glenn Maxwell as the momentum slipped. Shane Watson, not seen since the first Ashes Test, finished 26 not out at better than a run per ball. Ireland, initially chasing 195 in 27 overs, lost openers Paul Stirling and William Porterfield inside two overs before a gutsy third-wicket fightback. Veterans Ed Joyce (44) and Niall O’Brien (45) put on 86 in just 12.4 overs, but neither man could go on. Maxwell’s off-spin was expensive but accounted for both top-scorers. Only Stuart Thompson backed the pair up with a score above 20 as Mitchell Starc and Pat Cummins each took two wickets. Coulter-Nile returned at the death to end things early with the last two scalps.

The group charged with monitoring tennis gambling and punishing corruption found a near-doubling in the number of suspect matches in the first three months of 2020. That is an increase it ties to the coronavirus pandemic.The London-based Tennis Integrity Unit’s quarterly report says it received a total of 38 alerts from the regulated betting industry about matches on lower-level tours from the start of the year through March 22.That is up from 21 in the same period of 2019.The 38 match alerts in the year’s first quarter break down as six from the ATP Challenger Tour and 16 apiece from the men’s and women’s International Tennis Federation World Tennis Tours.The report concludes the jump indicates that entry levels of tennis “were deliberately targeted” as the sport moved toward suspension because of the outbreak of COVID-19. All pro tours are on hold until at least mid-July.___The players and coach on Switzerland’s national soccer team have declined to take more than 1 million Swiss francs ($1.03 million) of payments that were due from their federation in 2020.The team was scheduled to play in the now-postponed European Championship in June and had two games in Qatar canceled last month because of the coronavirus pandemic.The shutdown of games has cost the Swiss soccer body millions of dollars.

He was their defensive coordinator three seasons before that. Andrew Parsons says about 5% of spending is being cut from the IPC’s budget. A 2018 financial report showed a budget of 24 million euros ($25.7 million).Parsons says the problem was due partly to broadcast rights holders who want to delay their payments until the product is delivered.Parsons says it’s not a question of “losing money” but rather some temporary belt tightening.He says “like all businesses we are tremendously affected by the COVID-19 crisis.”He says he is dealing with 150 contracts that are games-related but adds “we have no plans to let any staff go at the moment.” Basketball Hall of Famer and noted cyclist Bill Walton is teaming with community leaders to stage the Bill Walton and Friends Inter-Galactic Bike for Humanity ride from 9-11 a.m. PDT on April 25 to benefit victims of the coronavirus pandemic and health care workers.Participants are encouraged to ride their bikes for up to two hours that day, anywhere they can practice social distancing at a minimum of 6 feet, 11 inches, in honor of Walton’s height.

Cristiano Ronaldo’s dream of a major trophy with his native country, Portugal manifested last night as the Real Madrid star and his teammates snatched a late 1-0 winner against France to win the Euro2016 last night.He was stretchered off in tears but an extra-time goal by Eder saw Portugal beat hosts France 1-0 in yesterday’s Euro 2016 final to win their first major tournament.The victim of a heavy challenge by Dimitri Payet, Ronaldo went off in the first half, but returned to the touchline to see Lille striker Eder settle the game with a low 25-yard strike in the extra time at Stade de France.Twelve years after losing 1-0 to Greece as hosts of Euro 2004, Portugal inflicted the same fate on France, who were seeking a cathartic victory eight months on from the Paris attacks that left 130 people dead.France coach Didier Deschamps had hoped to lead his side to a fourth major tournament win, and third on home soil after Euro 1984 and the 1998 World Cup, when he was captain. But it was Ronaldo’s Portugal who prevailed.The victory ended Portugal’s run of 10 straight defeats against France, who had eliminated them in the semi-finals at Euro 1984, Euro 2000 and the 2006 World Cup.

Facebook Twitter Google+ It’s easy to forget. As Syracuse keeps winning and scoring in a multitude of ways, its deft 3-point shooting ability is not this team’s trademark. But it is a weapon.Syracuse’s long-range shooting was lethal in its last two games, when Kris Joseph made 6-of-11 3s against Georgetown and the Orange hit 10-of-16 from deep against Connecticut.‘We’re not labeled as a 3-point shooting team anyway, but we do shoot the ball pretty well I think,’ said Joseph, who is 9-of-15 in SU’s last two games. ‘The last couple games we’ve been shooting extremely well, but sometimes we have our off days.’Syracuse can live by the 3, but it won’t die by the 3. It’s a fortunate position to be in —if Syracuse isn’t hitting from beyond the arc, the Orange can drive to the basket, work the ball inside or press to force turnovers and easy baskets. But if Syracuse gets hot from outside, as it did in Saturday’s 85-67 victory over the Huskies, 3-point shooting can win the game.The Orange’s arsenal of scorers has been well documented. The second-ranked team in the country can play 10 deep. Dion Waiters —perhaps the best sixth man in the country —has said time and time again the scariest thing about this team is someone different can be the scoring leader every game.AdvertisementThis is placeholder textBut if players like Joseph and senior guard Scoop Jardine can both drive to the hoop to create points and pull up from outside for 3, have fun putting together a defense to shut Syracuse down.Jardine did both against UConn. With SU leading 56-52, he drove into the paint in transition before the Huskies defense was set up. His penetration allowed him to kick to an open Joseph for 3 on the left side of the arc.Later, with Syracuse ahead 63-61 and 6:26 to play, Jardine started the Orange’s 18-1 run to put the game away by knocking down 3-pointers on back-to-back possessions, forcing a Connecticut timeout.Jardine, Joseph, Waiters and Brandon Triche. All can get to the rim or pull up for 3.‘That’s the best thing about this team this year,’ Waiters said. ‘Anybody can get it going. We don’t even know that we’re going on those tight runs until you look up and somebody tells you.’Jardine downplayed the hot 3-point shooting, calling his team ‘streaky.’ But he acknowledged he’s on a team that isn’t crushed by a bad shooting night.It allows Syracuse to take what it’s given by the defense. When the Orange heads to the Big East and NCAA tournaments, it will see contrasting defensive schemes in short periods of time.The Orange can shoot over a zone, as evidenced by Joseph’s six 3s against Georgetown’s 2-3 zone Wednesday. And SU was a matchup nightmare for the Huskies’ man-to-man defense. Waiters, Triche and Jardine are 210, 205 and 190 pounds, respectively.The Huskies’ guards, Ryan Boatright and Shabazz Napier? They weigh in at a light 160 and 171 pounds.Jardine had one of the best shooting games a player could have against UConn, going 8-of-9 from the field and knocking down all four 3-point attempts.‘We got shots that we’ve been getting, haven’t been making,’ SU head coach Jim Boeheim said. ‘We’ve been getting pretty good looks at the 3-point line and haven’t made them.’Joseph said it’s a matter of being hot from beyond the arc in recent games after a period in which Syracuse was pretty cold shooting. SU had its moments from 3-point range earlier this season, namely making 11 treys at North Carolina State and going 10-of-17 from long range at Providence.It’s not very often a team comes along that can win at any pace. Syracuse can outscore you or outdefend you. The Orange can go from scoring 64 points in a grind-it-out overtime win over Georgetown to dropping 85 on UConn.That offensive versatility —with the ability to score inside, outside, in transition or in a halfcourt set —makes Syracuse look incredibly formidable for the postseason.‘We’re not necessarily a team that’s going to try and come down and shoot majority 3s,’ Joseph said. ‘We’re going to try and get the ball inside and mix it up. We just take what the defense gives us.’Mark Cooper is the sports editor for The Daily Orange, where his column appears occasionally.
