Just a stroll across the road to Tallebudgera Creek and within walking distance of Burleigh beach, Burleigh Heads National Park, cafes and Burleigh’s bustling James St, the property was in a highly sought-after area, Mr Fitzgerald said.“There’s only been one sale in six years on the front there,’’ he said.“Properties are hard to come by and opportunities on that waterfront are hard to find. “Most are held in the same family and just passed on through the generations.”Property records show the brick block is owned by Denise Kuhne and last sold in December 1991 for $360,000.More from news02:37International architect Desmond Brooks selling luxury beach villa11 hours ago02:37Gold Coast property: Sovereign Islands mega mansion hits market with $16m price tag2 days agoIt has two two-bedroom units on the ground floor and another three-bedroom unit upstairs, with two covered carparking spaces and a communal laundry between them.“The owners were originally from Melbourne and they used it as a holiday house,” Mr Fitzgerald said.

The property will go under the hammer on April 27 at 10am.He and Mr Malan had been inundated with inquiries from a “mixed bag” of interested buyers during the month the block had been on the market.“We’ve had tonnes — there have been 76 inspections,” Mr Fitzgerald said.“Investors are looking to land-bank it, most of them with a long-term goal of knocking it down and building on it later on.”The house at No. 33 was the last to sell on the street, fetching $1.196 million in 2016.Mr Fitzgerald also sold a property in Elanora St, which joins Awoonga Ave, in 2017. More than 400 people attended that auction, which included more than 50 registered bidders, and the property sold for $2.55 million.He was not sure whether the unit block would attract as big a crowd because the market had changed “quite a bit’’ in the past 18 months, but he believed competition would be fierce.“I’d say it would be another few years until another opportunity comes up,” he said.The property goes to auction at 10am Saturday.

A lot of things have changed since the time I was playing. The CAF we knew before was not the same we know now. The stadia have also greatly developed. The technology has already grown and it is not like in our days where there were no social platforms to follow up the players and the competition.Now you don’t need to travel to watch your team play. You can just sit at home and watch your favourite players and teams on social media. This is something that has helped African football grow to become better and better.The CAF Champions League has also grown and if you look at all our respective local leagues, they have developed as well. We have good talented players all across Africa and more are moving abroad.What are some of the most memorable moments you have of your playing career at AFCON?I think for me, every moment I played at the AFCON was memorable because not everyone has the chance to play in AFCON. If you are there it means a lot. But the games that I do remember were when we played against Cameroon, Ghana or the North African teams.One match I remember was in 2004 when we beat Cameroon 2-1. That was a prestigious moment for us.You have scored plenty of fine goals in your career, but which are the most memorable?The most memorable goal for me has to be the two I scored against Brazil (Olympics 1996). I do love Brazil and I always support them. When we played in the semis it was like “ooh the mighty Brazil’… We were 3-1 down five minutes to the end of the game and we scored to come 3-2.In injury time I scored a special goal that saw the game end 3-3 and at that time, the Golden Goal Rule was still applied and I scored the fourth goal in extra time.It was special because the Brazil team then was the best. It had all the big players in that game but we finally won and the important goals were scored by Kanu.You are now here at the AFCON 2019, who do you expect to shine?You have every country with their own superstars. Egypt has Mo Salah but unfortunately they are out; Senegal has Mane (Sadio), Nigeria has Ighalo (Odion). For me the stars are everyone and these are the players people will be looking at.Share this:FacebookRedditTwitterPrintPinterestEmailWhatsAppSkypeLinkedInTumblrPocketTelegram Nigerian and African football legend Nwankwo Kanu has said that football in the continent has greatly improved since his playing days, crediting the Confederation of African Football (CAF) for the efforts they have put in to help grow the game.Kanu is in Egypt as one of the African legends grazing the 2019 Total Africa Cup of Nations and the former striker, a two-time African Footballer of the Year and AFCON finalist with Nigeria in 2000 sat down with Cafonline.com for a brief chat.How would you compare football now to your days?

University of Massachusetts basketball guard Derrick Gordon hugs UMass professor emeritus Pat Griffin after speaking to reporters on the school’s campus, Wednesday, April 9, 2014, in Amherst, Mass.Griffin teaches lesbian, gay, bisexual, and transgender issues. (AP Photo/Steven Senne)NEW YORK (AP) — The premiere of “The Outfield” this weekend on satellite radio will open with a discussion of Derrick Gordon, the UMass guard who on Wednesday became the first openly gay Division I men’s basketball player.Seemingly perfect timing for a sports talk show about LGBT issues to debut just four days after that news broke. But the philosophy behind the weekly program on SiriusXM is that such stories are common.“Not a week goes by, not a month goes by without another headline about an athlete coming out,” said Dave Gorab, the company’s vice president for talk programming.When Eddie Robinson, who has worked for the SiriusXM SportsZone channel, pitched the idea, Gorab said his immediate reaction was “we have to do this.”As host, Robinson envisions a mix of news analysis, features and listener call-ins. One of the guests for Sunday’s premiere is Sheryl Swoopes, the women’s basketball star who at one time was the most recognizable athlete to come out in a team sport. The college coach at Loyola of Chicago later became engaged to a man.Robinson’s resume reads like someone preparing for this job — except the position never existed until he created it. A former high school football player, he has worked for CBS News, public radio and MTV. He was also an engineer and producer for New York sports talk radio station WFAN, remembering the discomfort of spending time in that testosterone-soaked environment when he was still in the closet.But there’s much about the in-depth analysis and relaxed banter of sports talk radio that Robinson wants to emulate. And he suspects many in the LGBT community long for those kinds of conversations, too.“Here is a platform that’s outside ‘Glee,’ outside ‘Queer Eye,’ outside RuPaul,” Robinson said.Those traditional sports talk radio hosts often avoid topics such as homophobia, though. Robinson expects plenty of coverage involving high-profile players such as Gordon, Jason Collins and Michael Sam. But he also wants to tell the stories of gay athletes and allies at the amateur, recreational and high school level. He believes the anonymity of the call-in format will also allow listeners to share their struggles and offer advice to one another.With 26 million subscribers, SiriusXM spans the entire country, able to reach a young gay athlete in a small town who otherwise wouldn’t hear of others with similar experiences.The show will air on OutQ, SiriusXM’s channel for the LGBT community, not a sports station. That seemed like the best fit, Gorab said.Robinson summed up the program’s balance of the fun of sports and the seriousness of societal issues this way: “It’s about understanding what it means to be an athlete who just happens to be gay.”

Why Tech Companies Need Simpler Terms of Servic… Top Reasons to Go With Managed WordPress Hosting Remember those pieces of paper with handwritten words on them that you used to post to people? “Letters” I think they’re called. To be honest though, I wouldn’t have a clue, as I’ve neither sent nor received one in my 16-year-old life.I’m sure the majority of readers here have at least sent a personal letter to friends or family in their lifetime. However, the same cannot be said about my generation. I’ve sent tens of thousands of emails, Facebook messages, SMSs, and IMs – but never a single letter.More than solely being a form of communication, letters are a very effective historical item. Think about letters sent home to families from the soldiers on the battlefields of both world wars. Letters were kept because they have a perceived value – it took time and effort to send a letter, and therefore people viewed them as much more valuable.My parents still have letters that they received more than 30 years ago, and when they read them now they say that they detail entire relationships and friendships. They have vast amounts of information about their own history stored inside the letters that they sent and received. It goes even further than that. My grandmother still has letters she received from her grandmother. If it weren’t for those letters, all that information about my own family history would have been lost, or confined to memory (which, as my parents are discovering, fails us all eventually).Guest author Michael Moore-Jones is a sixteen-year-old who has grown up globally, but is currently based in Wellington, New Zealand. He is passionate about technology and business, and is involved in numerous startups. You can read his thoughts on his blog at mmoorejones.com, or follow him on Twitter at @mmoorejones.And yet, I can’t tell anyone what I was discussing with someone a month ago. That’s testament to the digital age that I, and everyone in my generation, is a native member of. I find myself feeling incredibly guilty that my parents and grandparents went to so much effort to ensure that our family history was kept, and here I am frequently losing information about my life. The frequency and brevity of messages sent today combined with the numerous mediums used means that this personal information now has a much lower perceived value: Your email storage fills up – you delete all your messages. You get a new mobile phone – all of your SMS’s are lost.Some people are already worrying about what may happen if we continue to throw away our information. For example, the U.S. Library of Congress announced in April last year that it would be archiving every Twitter message ever sent. Sure it’s a phenomenal undertaking, but in no way is it enough. Think about all the different mediums of communication you use. For example, today alone I have communicated with people via SMS, email, Facebook messages, Facebook chat, Whatsapp Messenger, Skype chat, and Twitter. Out of those, only my public Twitter updates are being stored. There are other efforts like the Library of Congress’ undertaking, but mass archiving won’t help us store our individual histories in a way that we can access.What happens if, in three years, I want to go back through all my communications with my girlfriend? I may not be using an iPhone in three years, so all of my messages on Whatsapp Messenger will be gone. I definitely won’t be using the same mobile phone, so all of my SMS’s will be gone. My Gmail storage will have filled up, so I won’t have any of our emails any more. I doubt I’ll even still be using Facebook – there’s all of that communication gone. All of this information that is so important and so relevant to me personally is just disappearing, and I won’t be able to track the relationships and friendships that I have had.Personally, I am now backing up my computer daily, and copying and pasting communication from all different formats into different documents stored both on hard drive and in the cloud. While it’s a start, it’s an absolutely horrific task, and doesn’t completely work (I’m not going to be transcribing my SMS’s into a document).The abundance of technology is severely devaluing information. Do we go on ignoring this fact, and losing the details of our lives? Or do we do the hard work, and attempt to effectively store our communications? I know that I’ll be putting in the hard work – at least until the magicians in Silicon Valley come up with a better solution.Photo by adamci Related Posts Tags:#Op-Ed#Real World#web guest author 1 A Web Developer’s New Best Friend is the AI Wai… 8 Best WordPress Hosting Solutions on the Market

mgofail website eleven warriorsMichigan’s last-second blunder against Michigan State hasn’t just delighted Spartans fans. Of course, Ohio State supporters have been reveling in the aftermath as well. One Buckeyes site – Eleven Warriors – has come up with a humorous way to celebrate.11W has created a new website, named MGo.Fail, which chronicles five of Michigan’s biggest disappointments over the years. There’s this past Saturday’s punt fail, Ohio State’s invasion of the Big House in 2009, Michigan’s stinker against Toledo in 2008, Michigan’s loss to FCS-level Appalachian State in 2007, and Michigan’s collapse against Colorado back in 1994. They’ve included videos as well.Ohio State fans will probably enjoy spending time on the site. Michigan fans probably won’t.
