Cooper Cronk tests the market

first_imgLoads of room for children.Cronk hasn’t had it all his way in Melbourne, having to adjust his rental expectations for his townhouse, with CoreLogic listings showing the initial rent of $850 a week was dropped to $825 a week by the time he left for his new life — and soon to be wife — in Sydney.Now over a year later, the former St Laurence’s star pupil is testing the waters again, trying his luck by listing the property at $850 a week rent.In the end he may have to rely on star power to get the big bucks he feels the property deserves — though it is just a seven minute bicycle ride to AAMI Park and apparently has “stunning city views”. Maroon’s legend Cooper Cronk is testing the rental market again. Cronk bought this the same year he won his first Daly M Medal.Perhaps that’s why he sold up in Brisbane first, flicking a four-bedroom house he’d bought for $477,000 over a decade ago.in Calamvale just a month before he announced he was joining the Sydney Roosters.Both he and wife Tara Rushton chose to hang on to their bachelor and bachelorette pads when they joined forces — later buying a $3.5m home in trendy Sydney suburb Mosman.

Ulstein Introduces New Fish Trawlers

first_imgUlstein has launched a new series of fish trawlers with ship solutions for sustainable fishing methods and processing. The goal is, among other things, more gentle handling of the fish and introduction of environmentally-friendly ship solutions, the company said.On this project, Ulstein has worked closely together with Nordic wildfish.“Nordic wildfish has solid experience in trawling and in testing new methods for fishery and market. We both have a history of being innovative and come up with advancing solutions. Through this cooperation we have developed improved and state-of-the art solutions for quality and sustainability in trawl fishery,” said Tore Ulstein, COO in Ulstein Design & Solutions, and Ulstein Group’s head of the board.“We want to turn visions into reality with regards to our EcoFive project (Eco-friendly fishing vessel). Ulstein’s trawler series is designed to implement solutions for gentle fish catch, effective processing and hydrolysing of the rest of the raw material. This will provide significantly increased sustainability in trawling, better quality, higher efficiency, more earnings and less environmental footprint,” added Tore Roaldsnes, CEO at Nordic wildfish.The X-BOW alters the traditional layout of trawler vessel arrangements, and leads to better placement of crew, factory and cargo. The factory is placed on two decks, while all the accommodation is assembled central in the ship.Due to the X-BOW hull line, the fore ship will be efficiently exploited. Ships carrying the X-BOW feature also have less vibrations and pitching, which help to improve the working environment on board and reduce noise in the sea, Ulstein explained..The vessels in the series have an effective hybrid system which combines batteries with diesel-electric and diesel-mechanical propulsion. The vessels will become more fuel efficient, operate with little noise and will comply to the requirements of the DNV-GL SILENT notation.last_img read more

Adebayor double downs Swans

first_img The win moves Tottenham up to fifth, level on points with fourth-placed Liverpool, as Tim Sherwood, who opted against sticking with a 4-4-2 formation here, remained unbeaten in the Premier League since taking over from Andre Villas-Boas. Swansea, meanwhile, remain just three points above the relegation zone and their lengthy injury list and the alarming manner in which they faded following Adebayor’s opener will be very troubling for manager Michael Laudrup. The hosts had entered the game without a win in seven league games and their predicament had even led the usually reserved Laudrup to emit a rallying call that his side had six weeks to turn around their fortunes of face up to being involved in a relegation dogfight. It appeared to have the desired effect as his players opened strongly. Jonjo Shelvey was the first to work Hugo Lloris as he turned away from Vlad Chiriches and unleashed a fierce drive, with Bony firing a couple of yards wide on the turn. Swansea’s desire to push forward led to occasional midfield lapses, but Spurs were having trouble handling their hosts with the excellent Bony in particular causing all manner of problems. The Ivorian beautifully checked inside Dawson and produced a howitzer of a shot which beat Lloris but smashed against the crossbar. Dawson was fortunate not to concede a penalty from a corner seconds later, the Tottenham captain clearly pushed Bony as he rose to try and get in a header but referee Martin Atkinson, who was looking straight at the incident, did not act. Press Association And Swansea’s frustrations only grew when they fell behind. Christian Eriksen produced a wonderful cross from the right to catch the Swansea defence out of position, with Adebayor completing the formalities from close range. The Welsh club were rocked and any confidence built from a good opening half-hour quickly evaporated. Nacer Chadli should have doubled Spurs’ lead moments later, firing over after being left in acres of space. Gerhard Tremmel then punched away a stinging Adebayor volley and Swansea were ultimately relieved to hear the half-time whistle. But matters did not improve for them as Shelvey limped off with a hamstring problem to be replaced by Roland Lamah. The former Liverpool midfielder joins an injury list which already included Michu, Michel Vorm, Jonathan de Guzman, Pablo Hernandez, Nathan Dyer, Jose Canas and Garry Monk. Within minutes Tottenham doubled their lead. Lamah lost Kyle Walker completely and it proved costly as Flores could only turn the full-back’s cross into his own net. Lloris again had to be alert to block another powerful Bony effort, while Flores headed over from a corner as the hosts sought a way back into the game. But Swansea’s need to push forward left them exposed defensively. Moussa Dembele missed one sitter after Lennon’s pass outwitted the Swansea offside trap, but there was no such reprieve when Danny Rose raced down the left and pulled the ball across the box for Adebayor to calmly beat Tremmel and claim his second on the day and sixth in eight games. Bony pulled one back for Swansea as he steered Lamah’s scuffed cross beyond Lloris, but it was too little, too late. The striker headed Spurs into a 35th-minute lead and then tapped in their third after a Chico Flores own goal had doubled the visitors’ lead. Wilfried Bony hit the bar and had a good penalty appeal for a push by Michael Dawson turned down in the first half, before getting Swansea’s consolation late on. Emmanuel Adebayor grabbed a brace as Tottenham won 3-1 at the Liberty Stadium to compound Swansea’s relegation fears.last_img read more

Grealish pens new Villa deal

first_img The 19-year-old academy product has made his breakthrough with Villa this season, coming on as a substitute in four Barclays Premier League matches and playing the full 90 minutes of a Capital One Cup tie. For midfielder Grealish, who spent last season on loan at Notts County, he concedes the new contract with his boyhood club is “a dream come true”. Grealish said: “I’ve grown up supporting the club – in fact, I’ve had a season ticket at Villa since I was four years old and came to every game – so this is a big thing for me and my family. “This has always been a club that plays a big role in the community, it has a family feel to it and I’m proud to be part of that now. This feels like home to me. “For the manager and the club to show this faith and trust in me, I’m really appreciative and I’m determined to repay that trust. “I know I have to continue to kick on and push on now. I have to keep developing and progressing and strive to be as good a player as I can possibly be. “Every day I’m learning from the players here and the manager, and it’s been a steep learning curve that can only benefit me in the long run.” Boss Paul Lambert recognises Grealish to be a special talent, and is delighted the teenager’s future through to 2018 at least will be at Villa. Lambert said: “There’s always an excitement around a young player who comes through the academy. “But the thing is the potential we have signed in Jack Grealish is great for everyone connected with Villa. “He has a long way to go in the game but the potential that’s in him, we believe, means we could have a really good player in the years to come.” Rising Aston Villa star Jack Grealish has committed his future to the club by signing a new four-year deal. center_img Press Associationlast_img read more

Brendan Rodgers channels ‘fear’ for his job into motivation

first_img The Northern Irishman has found himself under increased scrutiny this week after a disappointing 1-1 draw at home to Norwich was followed by them scraping past League Two Carlisle on penalties at Anfield in the Capital One Cup. He has also had to deal with claims – denied by the club – three-time Champions League winner Carlo Ancelotti had been approached about the possibility of taking over his job. Speculation also surrounds Jurgen Klopp. Press Association But Rodgers came out fighting in his press conference ahead of the visit of Aston Villa, which has taken on increased significance in the light of recent results. Asked about his thoughts on whether his job was under threat he said: “I’ve never complacent enough to think that it’s never been. “That’s what drives a manager on – that fear, positive fear. “But it doesn’t frighten me. I’ve got an inherent belief in what I do but I don’t shy away from the fact that you need to get results and be performing well to try and stay and work. “I don’t think it (the pressure) goes away unless you’re winning games but I know that we’ve created that expectancy because of how we’ve worked. “How do I block it out? It’s very simple. I hope to be a football manager for another 20-odd years and I suspect that those 20 won’t be at Liverpool, but whilst I’m here I want to fight for the players and the club.” Owners Fenway Sports Group stood by Rodgers in the summer despite a dreadful end to the campaign which culminated in 6-1 defeat at Stoke on the final day of the season. Despite taking just five points from their last six matches, plus enduring a dismal FA Cup semi-final exit to a struggling Villa side, the Americans backed their manager, albeit it with some tweaks. After what was described as a “robust” annual end-of-season review Rodgers kept his job but was forced to accept changes to the coaching staff which saw assistant manager and close friend Colin Pascoe and first-team coach and former player Mike Marsh leave in a shake-up which brought in England Under-19s boss Sean O’Driscoll and ex-Reds midfielder Gary McAllister. FSG also supported Rodgers in the transfer window with an outlay of £80million, much of which was recouped from the sale of Raheem Sterling to Manchester City for £49million. The Americans have been more patient than some owners may have been but Rodgers knows that could change at any minute. “I have regular contact with the owners and the relationship has always been strong,” he added. “Whatever happens here, whether I’m here for one day, one month, one year, whatever, I’ll always have a huge respect for the owners here and the people that work here. “I walked in here three years ago as a 39-year-old manager at one of the greatest football clubs in the world and I’m a better manager now for that. “My time here has been enjoyable and I hope it continues to be that. I hope to be here for a long time.” As if speculation about his job was not enough, injuries have given Rodgers something else to worry about. Striker Christian Benteke (hamstring) and defender Dejan Lovren (ligament injury) are likely to be sidelined for a while and forward Roberto Firmino will have a scan to ascertain whether he has fractured a bone in his back after coming off against Carlisle. “Benteke will probably be out for a little bit of time,” said Rodgers. “Young Firmino landed awkwardly and may have cracked a bone in his back and Dejan Lovren will be out for a few weeks with a ligament injury.” Midfielder Jordan Henderson is already out for up to eight weeks after having an operation to fix a broken bone in his foot. Liverpool manager Brendan Rodgers admits he is never complacent enough to think his job is safe but insists he is driven on by the “positive fear” it might not be. last_img read more

Prince Harry, Joshua launch sports campaign to support disadvantaged young people

first_imgTHE Duke of Sussex has teamed up with boxing champs Anthony Joshua and Nicola Adams to launch a new initiative, which aims to support disadvantaged young people through sport.Made by Sport, which brings together a coalition of charities, it aims to raise £40 million that will be used to provide a variety of sporting provisions in deprived areas of cities across the UK.Harry, 34, was reunited with former heavyweight champion Anthony Joshua (AJ), 29, at the Black Prince Trust in Lambeth.The pair first met two years ago when AJ offered to be Harry’s best man at his wedding to Meghan Markle, when the duke interviewed the boxer on Radio 4’s Today programme.Harry stepped into the boxing gym at the event to watch Anthony coach youngsters alongside flyweight fighter and double Olympic gold medallist Nicola Adams.Funding for youth services has dropped by 40% over the last four years and young people from disadvantaged communities are half as likely to participate in sport as those from affluent backgrounds.During his speech, the duke acknowledged how sport can positively impact people’s mental health and how it can change lives.He said: “We have a responsibility in this campaign to ensure places that are being shut down are not being shut down and that people from all walks of society and every corner of this country are actually given the opportunity to shine, to flourish.”“This is about community; this is about providing opportunity to young people all over the place to actually be part of something, something they might not be getting at home, within their own community.”Anthony said: “Sport to me is more than competing. It is about the discipline and regiment it teaches you. The lifestyle of an athlete can be taken into any walk of life. It’s about how you can improve yourself as an individual.”Prince Harry revealed in an interview with The Daily Telegraph’s Bryony Gordon in 2017 that he took up boxing because “he was on the verge of punching someone,” during his battle with grief following his mother Princess Diana’s death.He said: “Everyone was saying boxing is good for you and it’s a really good way of letting out aggression.” (Yahoo Sport UK)last_img read more

Study says cramming hurts grades

first_imgLate nights studying can actually have poor consequences for grades, according to a new study published in the journal Child Development by researchers at the University of California, Los Angeles.Helena Seli, a professor of clinical education at USC’s Rossier School of Education, said that recent studies suggest that the human brain uses sleep specifically for learning and remembering information.“Sleep studies are suggestive, not definitive, but there is enough experimental evidence to show that sleep helps to consolidate memories and learning,” Seli said.In the paper, the researchers state that learning material becomes more difficult with a lack of sleep.“Regardless of how much a student generally studies each day, if that student sacrifices sleep time to study more than usual, he or she will have more trouble understanding material taught in class and be more likely to struggle on an assignment or test the following day,” the researchers wrote in the paper.The study also gave evidence that students who regularly obtain fewer than five hours of sleep tend to have a lower GPA.Seli said sleep is important because it is crucial in the process of forming memory.“As we sleep, our memories get consolidated and integrated with existing knowledge,” Seli said.Stephen Los Baños, a senior majoring in communication, said he believes most USC students understand that sleep is crucial for their academic success. However, Baños also observed that students tend to study more at night, which effects their sleeping.“However, often times, due to such things like bad time management, we do not allow ourselves to get into a regular sleep cycle,” Baños said.Robert Abugel, a sophomore studying policy, planning and development, said he studies late into the night in the hopes of making up for lost study time during the day.“I study more late at night because I’m busy during the day with classes and other obligations to friends,” Abugel said.Seli, however, said leaving studying to one block of time can be detrimental because of the difference between mass and distributed studying. Mass studying is what students like to call “cramming,” while distributed studying is studying small sections of a topic over long periods of times. Mass studying has been shown to not produce long-term knowledge. In contrast, distributed studying paired with regular sleep allows students to learn new topics effectively and also consolidate this new knowledge  with proper rest.Other research studies have been done in the past that provide more evidence supporting the point that sleeping less regularly, even if it is to study, causes poor academic performance.“The Link Between Sleep Quantity and Academic Performance for the College Student,” a research study done by the University of Minnesota Undergraduate Journal of Psychology, shows results that suggest the more students sleep at night, the higher their GPAs are.last_img read more
