Pimpama has claimed second place on Australia’s housing hot spot list. Gainsborough Greens is just one of many new housing developments in the area.A GOLD Coast suburb has been dubbed the fastest growing housing market in Queensland for a second year running.Pimpama has claimed second place on Australia’s housing hot spot list.The list of 20 of the nation’s strongest markets was revealed this week in the Housing Industry of Australia’s latest Population and Residential Building Hotspots report.An area qualifies as a hotspot if at least $150 million worth of residential building work wasapproved in 2016/17 and its rate of population growth was faster than the national average. Tribeca’s Symphony development is another new one at Pimpama.Mirvac’s Queensland Residential general manager Warwick Bible said buyers were flocking to its latest development at Pimpama, Gainsborough Greens.“Gainsborough Greens is among the Gold Coast’s fastest selling residential communities, with new homeowners attracted to the area’s open space, park facilities and strong sense of community,” he said.“Gainsborough Greens residents enjoy access to 6km of walking and bicycle tracks, an easy commute to Brisbane and Gold Coast CBDs, and a short drive to several schools, making it an attractive place to put down roots and raise a family.” STAND OUT FROM THE CROWD THE AUCTION RESULT NO ONE SAW COMING Pimpama was ranked number one in the housing hot spot list last year after it saw its population grow at a rate of 35 per cent during 2015/16 and $340 million worth of building approvals.But the Mickleham-Yuroke area of Melbourne has knocked it from the leading position with population growth of 35.3 per cent and $222.9 million in building approvals.

Harry Redknapp has backed Charlie Austin to become the latest former non-League star to make a successful transition to life in the top-flight. Press Association Bricklayer-turned-goalscorer Austin handed QPR a Barclays Premier League lift on Saturday, firing his first top-level goal in a 1-0 home victory over Sunderland. The 25-year-old’s powerful drive ended QPR’s 315-minute goal drought at the start of the new campaign, easing pressure on boss Redknapp. QPR are expected to sign a replacement striker for Chelsea-bound Loic Remy before Monday’s transfer window closure, but still backed Austin to make the Premier League grade. “There are lots of strikers that have come out of lower-league football,” said Redknapp of the former Kintbury striker. “Obviously recently there’s the likes of Rickie Lambert and before that Kevin Phillips, and it’s great to see that hopefully chances are still there to move through the levels. “And hopefully Charlie can be another who does the same thing in the long term. “He took his goal very well, it’s great for him. “Thursday was the first time he’d trained for two weeks after his hamstring problem, so to get 60-odd minutes out of him was a bonus.” Rangers’ club captain Clint Hill started Saturday’s vital victory in a re-jigged four-man defence, with Richard Dunne on the bench. Redknapp started the season keen to favour 3-5-2, but has quickly shifted to a flat back four. Summer recruit Rio Ferdinand will skipper Rangers as and when Hill is absent, and the 35-year-old was expected to battle for minutes on the field. Redknapp hailed Hill’s pivotal contribution against the Black Cats, though, especially for a match-saving block in the six-yard box. “You can put your life on Clint can’t you, he’s such a great professional,” said Redknapp. “He’s reliable and that’s so important for us, and he showed just what he offers. “We’ve got to have competition in there, that’s vital.”
HEAVYWEIGHT world champion Tyson Fury has reportedly tested positive for cocaine, according to ESPN’s Dan Rafael.“Fury submitted to a random urine test on September 22 in Lancaster, England, and the results came back positive for the substance benzoylecgonine, the central compound found in cocaine and the marker for a positive test for the banned substance,”The failed test will, adds Rafael, “likely result in Fury being stripped of the heavyweight world title belts he was to defend in a rematch with Ukraine’s Klitschko on October 29 at the Manchester Arena”.The Voluntary Anti-Doping Agency (VADA), appointed to oversee drug-testing ahead of the Fury-Klitschko fight, wrote to the British Boxing Board of Control, the United States’ Association of Boxing Commissions and both the Fury and Klitschko camps to confirm the test result – ESPN has obtained a copy of the letter.The Guardian added that while Fury could lose one or more of his belts before he steps into the ring next, he is unlikely to face a ban, as cocaine “is not prohibited when it is taken out of competition under World Anti-Doping Agency rules.”Fury, who out-pointed Wladimir Klitschko in November 2015 to claim the WBA, IBF and WBO belts, pulled out of their October 29 re-match having been declared “medically unfit”.“Tyson has this week been declared medically unfit to fight,” Fury’s promoters Hennessy Sports said in a brief statement at the time.“Medical specialists have advised that the condition is too severe to allow him to participate in the rematch and that he will require treatment before going back into the ring.”The withdrawal marked the second time Fury had pulled out of the re-match with the 40-year-old former champion after pulling out of their original re-match due to an injured ankle.

Wisconsin Badgers seniors (l-r) Keaton Nankivil, Brett Valentyn, Jon Leuer, Wquinton Smith, Tim Jarmusz and J.P. Gavinski were honored after they helped knock off the Northwestern Wildcats Sunday.[/media-credit]Against the Northwestern Wildcats Sunday evening, seniors scored the Wisconsin Badgers’ first seven points. Senior forwards Jon Leuer and Tim Jarmusz led UW with six rebounds, while Leuer led all scorers with 26 points.All in all, Wisconsin’s Senior Day performance was fitting.“I think we did a good job of putting all the pregame emotion stuff behind us and taking care of business and then letting the ceremony take place afterwards,” said UW senior forward Keaton Nankivil. “It’s a pretty incredible feeling, just all the thanks you want to give to people.”Following the Badgers’ (22-6, 12-4) 78-63 victory, UW’s six seniors were honored with a video tribute on the Kohl Center scoreboard. Prior to that, once it was clear the Wildcats’ (16-12, 6-11) second-half rally would fall short, Badgers head coach Bo Ryan shuffled his lineup to get all six on the court.The move was, not surprisingly, met by thunderous applause. For the seniors, though, it might take some time to absorb the fact they have played their last game on the Kohl Center floor.“It hasn’t really set in, I don’t think, for me,” Leuer said. “I definitely have a lot of emotions going. It’s just been an unbelievable four years here at the Kohl Center. I’m definitely going to miss it; every gameday, lacing ’em up and going out there in front of our fans and our family members. It was definitely a good way to go out and get the win, celebrate with our families and friends after.”Leuer was the star Sunday – and not just among Wisconsin’s seniors. Along with his game-high 26 points and six rebounds, Leuer showed renewed aggressiveness around the hoop and in the paint. He shot 9-14 from the field and 8-11 from the free throw line.“I thought our guys did a good job, especially Jon, of scoring in the post,” UW head coach Bo Ryan said. “He didn’t rush things.”Nankivil was second in scoring for UW, contributing 15 points on 6-9 shooting (2-4 from three-point range) and four rebounds. Jarmusz, along with his six rebounds, also contributed six points on 2-3 shooting, all from behind the arc.The three remaining seniors combined for just three points, all of which came from guard Wquinton Smith on one shot. Guard Brett Valentyn received four minutes of playing time and center J.P. Gavinski was on the court for less than one, but the Badgers were quick to point out the most significant aspect of the night – as it has been in all 15 home games this season and 19 in a row dating back to last season, UW was victorious at the Kohl Center.“We just know with that crowd behind us, with Badger fans behind us, that when we’re at the Kohl Center, we don’t plan on losing – ever,” Leuer said. “This team did that this year. One of our goals we had was to always protect our home court, and we were able to do that. Check that one off the list.”In Ryan’s mind, though, talk of his team’s home play never focused on the streak.“Our guys are very well-educated; they can read,” he said. “They listen to their classmates; they know what’s going on. We’ve never talked about a streak.”
Alexis Sanchez has landed in Milan ahead of completing his loan move to Inter from Manchester United.It marks a fresh start for Sanchez and brings to an end a torrid 18 months at United.Representatives from both clubs have been working on a deal for over a month and finally a breakthrough arrived earlier this week. Sportsmail reported earlier, however, that Sanchez will still be United’s second-highest earner despite being on loan to Inter.It is understood that the 30-year-old pockets an eye-watering £400,000 a week, before bonuses, at United after signing from Arsenal last January.Inter have agreed to pay close to £4.5million of the Chile international’s £21m annual salary, meaning United will have to subsidise a significant portion of his wages.The move means Sanchez will link back up with close friend Romelu Lukaku at the San Siro.Lukaku and Sanchez struck up a close friendship during their time together at Old Trafford and the Belgian reportedly begged the Chile star to follow him to Italy.That £21m is Sanchez’s basic wage. Bonuses if met could earn him as much as £560,000 per week.It is understood that United will still pay around £300,000 towards Sanchez’s weekly earnings despite the striker spending the season on loan at Inter.Share this:FacebookRedditTwitterPrintPinterestEmailWhatsAppSkypeLinkedInTumblrPocketTelegram
ROSEAU, Dominica, CMC – The Office of Disaster Management (ODM) says Dominicans should not be overly concerned at the “burst of volcanic eruptions” in the southern part of the island over the last 24 hours.In a statement, the ODM said that the earthquakes “were smaller than magnitude 3.8 which is below the threshold for posting to the Seismic Research Centre (SRC’s) social media platforms.It said that while some of these volcanic eruptions “have been reported as felt” the activity “is part of an ongoing series of earthquakes in that area which may be described as volcanic unrest.“The unrest does not necessarily mean that an eruption will occur but as seen in 1998, larger magnitude earthquakes can occur and so the public should remain vigilant.”The ODM said that from 2000-2004 there was similar volcanic unrest activity that did not culminate in an eruption.But it said that the Trinidad-based SRC “is continuing to monitor the activity and provide the authorities with regular updates”.

(AP Photo/Ben Margot)ExpandOAKLAND — Lou Williams sent the same roaring, adoring crowd that cheered Kevin Durant’s milestone to the exits several minutes before the final buzzer.Durant was brilliant, and Williams even better.Williams scored 27 of his career-high 50 points in the third quarter and the undermanned Clippers beat the short-handed Golden State Warriors for the first time in more than three years with a 125-106 win Wednesday that spoiled a milestone night for Durant.Williams shot 16 for 27 from the field with a career-best eight 3-pointers and made all 10 of his free throws. He is the first Clippers player with at least three 40-point games in a season since World B. Free, who had eight in 1979-80 when the team was based in San Diego. “He ordered 50-piece nuggets on us tonight,” Durant quipped. “Lou got it going.”Durant became the 44th player in NBA history to score 20,000 career points, finishing with 40 as the Warriors had their five-game winning streak snapped along with a 12-game unbeaten stretch in the Clippers rivalry.Durant reached the milestone on a pull-up jumper from the left wing at the 1:41 mark of the second quarter. The Warriors announced his accomplishment on the main scoreboard and Durant received a standing ovation, shaking his head in acknowledgment while still very much in game mode.By late in the fourth quarter, that crowd was making its way for the exits with the game out of reach.The NBA Finals MVP returned from a three-game absence due to a strained right calf and scored 25 points in the first half against the Clippers – Durant’s biggest half of the season and the exact number he needed for 20,000. Newsroom GuidelinesNews TipsContact UsReport an Error Durant, who had a four-point play during the second quarter on the way to 14 points in the period, is at 29 the second-youngest player behind LeBron James (28 years, 17 days old) and first to reach the 20,000 mark as a member of the Warriors.He shot 14 for 18, including 6 for 7 from deep, and Zaza Pachulia added 12 points on a night when the Warriors were without their starting backcourt. Steph Curry aggravated his sprained right ankle during the morning shootaround, and Klay Thompson also was out for rest that had been previously scheduled.“Our spirit wasn’t right, our energy wasn’t right. We weren’t connected and they were,” Golden State coach Steve Kerr said. “The Clippers came in here probably insulted we were resting Klay, and obviously Steph goes down and so the game changes.”Amid a Yahoo report that Williams and the Clippers “have recently engaged in contract extension discussions,” the 2014-15 Sixth Man of the Year also dished out seven assists to go with his own scoring barrage. Rookie Tyrone Wallace added a season-best 22 points off the bench for the Clippers while returning to the Bay Area, where he starred in college at Cal.“Obviously 50 is a huge number. It’s a great accomplishment,” said Williams, who went into Wednesday’s game averaging 22.2 points on 44.4 percent shooting, including 40.7 percent from 3-point range. “For me, it was more important to get a win, try to close that gap to get back to .500, especially with the injuries, with guys in and out of the lineup, for us to still have that opportunity, to be in the playoff fold.“I’ve been playing with confidence for the past month or so now, so tonight was similar to other nights that I’ve had. I’ve had some special nights this year, but this one was pretty good.”Nick Young started in place of Thompson and had seven points but shot 3 for 11 and missed six of his seven 3-point attempts. It was Young’s first start with the Warriors. Shaun Livingston played in place of Curry and contributed eight points and four assists.Draymond Green missed his first five shots before connecting late in the third.“We still have two All-Stars. It’s an embarrassment of riches,” Golden State coach Steve Kerr said of Durant and Green. “I’m not going to shy away from that.”The Clippers, who have dealt with as many injuries as any team in the league this season, again played without Blake Griffin, Austin Rivers, Danilo Gallinari, Milos Teodosic and Patrick Beverley. They then watched C.J. Williams sprain his right ankle on a third-quarter drive to the basket. He left the arena on crutches.There were 13 lead changes in the first quarter alone. Golden State went on a 10-0 run midway through the second during which Durant scored eight points.Durant joined James, Kobe Bryant, Michael Jordan and Wilt Chamberlain as the only players to drop 20,000 points before the age of 30.CURRY’S ANKLECurry has the same injury that recently sidelined him for 11 games, though Kerr said: “I don’t think it’s serious. … He tweaked it.” No MRI or X-rays were scheduled for now, though Curry was sore and the Warriors won’t take any chances.“I didn’t see anything,” Kerr said before the game. “We just had a normal shootaround and he was in his usual game-day routine with Q (Bruce Fraser) and he just rolled his ankle somehow. Just kind of a fluke thing, kind of caught us off guard, but obviously he won’t play. … It’s unfortunate. Hopefully it’ll clear up in the next couple days.”The Warriors are 10-2 without Curry.TIP-INSClippers: The Clippers hadn’t beaten the Warriors since Christmas Day 2014 and had lost 11 straight on Golden State’s home floor since a 105-86 win on Dec. 25, 2011.Warriors: Durant notched his seventh 30-point game this season. … Thompson had played in all 41 games this season. … Center JaVale McGee played for only the second time in five games as Kerr struggles to use all his players in a deep, talented rotation. … Young earned his 194th career start as Golden State used a 14th different starting lineup this season — matching the team’s total from last season.UP NEXTClippers: At Sacramento on Thursday, looking for a fourth straight win in the series.Warriors: At Milwaukee on Friday to begin a five-game road trip featuring tough stops at Cleveland and Houston.
Jimmy Butler explained after a fight broke out between the 76ers and Nets in Game 4 of their first-round playoff series that he was just trying to protect teammate Joel Embiid.The scuffle happened after Embiid was given a flagrant foul for knocking Jarrett Allen to the floor. Nets’ Jared Dudley then shoved Embiid and Butler responded by pushing Dudley. The fight spilled over into the stands and the players had to be held back. Butler and Dudley were both called for technical fouls and ejected from the game. NBA playoffs 2019: Jared Dudley is ‘a nobody,’ says Joel Embiid Butler also explained he and Embiid knew a scuffle was going to break out after Embiid was called for a foul.”We definitely thought it was coming. I don’t be paying attention to him too much. I just don’t think you should run up on anybody like that,” Butler said. “It wasn’t a flagrant, for sure … We got a dub, that’s all I’m worried about.”Despite the ejections, the Sixers ended up winning Saturday’s game, 112-108. Philadelphia now leads the series 3-1 and will face Brooklyn at home in Game 5 on Tuesday at 8 p.m. ET.
