These are the suburbs you should have bought in ten years ago

first_img9 Goold Close, Robertson. Picture: realestate.com.au“We found Robertson extremely easy to get in and out of because of the freeway,’’ she said.“We were able to buy a fairly large block of land, we have got a double block, and build the sort of house that we wanted.Mrs Prineas said the area had really grown and changed in the past couple of decades.“The housing in the area has changed a lot it has gone from just your normal two-level brick home to some homes that are really quite lovely.’’The five-bedroom home, is listed through Owen Chen of Place Estate Agents, who has operated in the area for about seven years.He said it was the most expensive suburb among those in demand with Chinese buyers.“There is very, very limited supply, every year you only have about 50 houses sold and Robertson itself is a very small suburb.’’“What we see is a lot of high end builders, they knock down older houses and put a mansion there.’’ Irene Prineas is selling her house in Robertson, a suburb with extraordinary growth in the past ten years.

One Ocean Expeditions Restructuring after Vessel Withdrawals

first_imgMonths after Russian owners withdrew their ships that were chartered by Canada-based expedition cruise operator One Ocean Expeditions, the company announced it had entered into a restructuring procedure.Andrew Prossin, the company’s founder and CEO said in a statement on October 29 that the “sudden withdrawal” of vessels Akademik Ioffe and Akademik Sergey Vavilov caused a series of complex circumstances that the company is addressing.The CEO’s statement did not contain information on how passenger bookings would be affected or whether eventual refunds would be available.“The withdrawal of these ships was an unexpected and destabilizing event, and the violation of our contract remains the subject of ongoing legal action,” Prossin said.“We deeply regret the inconvenience caused to passengers and our long-standing partners and we remain focused on doing everything possible to move our company forward.“The last few days have been quite eventful but please be patient for a few days as we work to restructure our business. We will be in touch as soon as possible regarding our future plans and operations.”The only ship remaining in the company’s fleet is the RCGS Resolute, an ice-strengthened ship that was acquired in 2017.In August this year, the ship was briefly arrested in Iqaluit after Nova Scotia-based company Atship Services filed a claim that it was owed nearly CAD 100,00 by the ship’s owner.last_img read more

Pulis disappointed to leave Stoke

first_imgFormer Stoke manager Tony Pulis is disappointed by his exit but accepts chairman Peter Coates’ decision to want to take the club in a different direction. The 55-year-old parted company with the Potters by mutual consent on Tuesday after seven successive years in charge. Pulis had come in for increasing criticism from supporters for his ‘long-ball’, physical style and Coates decided after five years in the Premier League it was time for a change. “I have enjoyed some wonderful times at Stoke City and nobody was prouder than me when, after 23 years of exile from top-flight football we gained Barclays Premier League status,” said the Welshman in a statement. Press Associationcenter_img “Over the past five years we have created history by being the only team in this club’s 150 years existence to remain out of the bottom six in top-flight football for five consecutive seasons. “Within our five-year period in the Barclays Premier League we have featured in four major cup quarter-finals, an FA Cup semi-final and final. Further, we have encountered, progressed and reached the later stages of a major European cup competition, only to lose out to Spanish giants Valencia. “Peter, his family and I have enjoyed every inch of the journey; he has been truly a fantastic man to work with. Although I am disappointed I do understand what he means when he says the board feels a need to take the club in a different direction.” Pulis believes he leaves the club in a much healthier position than when he rejoined in 2006, mainly as a result of the progress made once they were promoted. “During this great run of success on the pitch the club has also been involved in the building and development of a training ground that now compares to any in the Barclays Premier League,” he added in a statement released by the League Managers’ Association. “Also, the Britannia Stadium has been revamped and now hosts and looks after virtually full-houses of the club’s great supporters every other week. In leaving I am very proud of what we have all achieved.” Coates expressed his thanks for the work Pulis had done. “The last seven years have been some of the best in our long history and I would like to thank Tony for his huge contribution in this,” he said in a statement. “I personally regard him as a great friend and will hugely miss working with him.” last_img read more

Gia Anthony and Tatumn Kohlbrenner earned the other goals, CBA ultimately taking 18 shots to Homer’s five.Going for six in a row Saturday against Skaneateles, the Brothers did not quite pull it off, ending in a 1-1 draw as Paciaga’s first-half goal, assisted by Kohlbrenner, was answered by a second-half tally from the Lakers’ Maddy Ramsgard.As for Manlius-Pebble Hill and Bishop Grimes, the Trojans were upended 5-1 by Onondaga last Tuesday, with the lone goal from Katherine Mezzalingua as Cassidy Field scored twice for the Tigers, with Lauren Myer and Avi Baker each getting one goal and one assist.A rematch with OCS on Friday was more lopsided, MPH taking a 6-0 defeat, this time with Baker netting two goals to lead a well-balanced Tigers attack.Grimes met Cato-Meridian late in the week and beat the Blue Devils 3-0 with all of the goals in the first half, one each by Kate Murphy, Jenna Sloan and Isabella Macro.Share this:FacebookTwitterLinkedInRedditComment on this Story Back home Thursday to face Auburn, J-D only managed half the production as in the Oswego game, but still got a 4-0 shutout of the Maroons.Once again, Megan Baker notched two goals, this time with Kousmanidis and Sydney Baker earning the other goals as Brazie, an anchor of the Rams’ defense, contributed an assist.East Syracuse Minoa got its turn last Tuesday against the same Central Square team that stunned J-D in overtime late in September.
