Araluen the Estates offers eight prestige acreage lots at Burbank, with two lots remaining.“The land is private and secluded yet with quick and easy access to the city and all its amenities … the lakes on the land are an important aspect of the property, supplying an abundant amount of good quality water to the estate,” Mr Greasley said.Lee and Jenny Watt were the first to buy into the estate and build their architect designed home.Formerly living on 4.45ha at Chandler, the Watt’s had just finished building their previous home when they heard about Araluen the Estates. More from newsMould, age, not enough to stop 17 bidders fighting for this homeless than 1 hour agoBuyers ‘crazy’ not to take govt freebies, says 28-yr-old investor6 hours agoMs Watt said they decided to have a look at the estate but weren’t expecting the sight that greeted them. “I thought being a former turf farm it would be all flat and boring with no trees, but when we got here we saw it was spectacular,” she said.The horse lover said that cleared acreage in that area was almost unheard of, so to find acreage that she could run her horses on, that has an unlimited supply of free water, was a gated community and backs onto a wildlife reserve was impossible to pass up.“We weren’t looking to move, we weren’t in the market, but when we came here we couldn’t resist it, it really is unique,” Ms Watt said. “Buck” the horse with Jenny and Lee Watt, who were the first to purchase and build in the prestige acreage estate Araluen the Estates in Burbank.ONCE a turf farm, it is now a prestigious estate with only eight exclusive acreage lots, and spectacular scenery. Araluen the Estates at Burbank, was owned and operated as Rochedale Turf by Bob Greasley for around 30 years. The accountant and turf farmer has now turned his farming property into a prestigious gated community.Mr Greasley said he had experienced a tremendously enjoyable journey on the property and was happy to see that the natural beauty and facilities of the property could now be enjoyed by the new residents. Lee and Jenny Watt are loving life at Araluen the Estates.“You could be anywhere in the world, you can’t see another house or person, you could easily be in the Hinterland but you’re only a 20 minute drive to South Bank in Brisbane.”Place at Bulimba selling agent Brenton Faehrmann said there were a number of factors that made the estate remarkable, not the least of which it being only an eight lot community and with gated security.“It is very easy to build on because of a very gentle undulation and the whole area has virtually been landscaped,” he said.“The fact there are only eight lots in the whole community is incredibly unique and there is an unlimited supply of water.”Mr Faehrmann said it was also a catchment area for the Tingalpa Reservoir meaning the outlook was on native vegetation and billabongs that could never be cleared, and there was plenty of wildlife such as koalas and wallabies.Blocks are selling for around $2 million for 6.07ha.

0Shares0000Mamelodi Sundowns forward Percy Tau has joined Brighton © AFP / PHILL MAGAKOELONDON, United Kingdom, Jul 20 – Brighton signed South Africa star Percy Tau from Mamelodi Sundowns on Friday, with the Premier League club set to send the forward on loan for the coming season.Tau agreed a four-year contract with the Seagulls after emerging as the hottest prospect in South Africa. The 24-year-old striker is the first South African in the English Premier League since Steven Pienaar, who left Sunderland in 2017 after spells with Everton and Tottenham.“Percy is a player we have highlighted for the future, and there is no doubting his talent, having been voted South African player of the season,” Brighton manager Chris Hughton said.“Percy will go out on loan this season, play regularly and get some experience of European football.“We will be watching his progress and monitoring his development over the season.”Tau has made 12 international appearances for South Africa, scoring five goals, and was the country’s player of the season in 2017-18.“This move should help me play more international football,” Taus said. “I’ll be learning a lot, which will also be good for my country. “Hopefully I can make some great memories here – I love making memories and I’m so happy to be here.”Tau won the South African title twice with Sundowns, as a fringe player in 2014 but as a regular last season.0Shares0000(Visited 1 times, 1 visits today)

Sun’s DTrace is a scriptable dynamic tracing utility that lets you observe low-level Operating System and Application behavior to assist with performance analysis, troubleshooting, and debugging. Here is an interesting discussion about why and how DTrace was created. The software runs on UNIX/Linux class machines, and it has been incorporated into Apple’s Mac OS X Leopard.Innovation, or perhaps successful innovation, has been receiving a lot of press. And success is usually accompanied by lists. There is the list of top Innovators under 35, Innovation Leaders in the EU, IBM’s survey of 765 CEOs on Innovation, 3M’s Seven Pillars of Innovation, and others.Innovation comes in many forms and can be transformative in an enterprise. Most industry-leader companies are innovative in some component of their business.In an interesting contrarian view of innovation as always being a positive, in a side-panel accompanying article to the WSJ list of Tech innovators, Nicholas Carr, author of the Harvard Business Review article “IT Doesn’t Matter”, questions business attempts to innovate at every level.Carr sees full-scale innovation as risky and expensive. He sees successful companies as those that select or limit the components of their business where they adopt innovation. For example, in the computer industry, Carr sees Dell as being innovative in the area of cost reduction of basic business processes, but not that innovative in terms of their products sold. Apple, as another success story, is 180 degrees opposite to Dell, being very innovative in product design but adopting standard business processes. Gateway is the example of a company that tried to embrace innovation at both the product and process level, but didn’t succeed in getting the formula right in either category. Carr sees focusing on being innovative in a single competancy as being a more successful strategy.Interesting thoughts. More of something isn’t always better. Ben Franklin’s 13-point plan for living, emphasizing moderation, may be useful advice for businesses too.

Hats off to Sun and Jonathan Schwartz. Other recent financial news also shows that Sun seems to be making a turnaround. An earlier discussion in this Blog about Sun can be found here.
With the series already under their belt, a confident India will look to continue their dominating run and complete a 4-1 drubbing over an inconsistent Sri Lanka in the final one-dayer in Pallekele on Saturday.India have been consistent and have dominated the five-match series right from the start, barring the second ODI, which they lost by nine wickets.The visitors took an unassailable 3-1 lead after winning the fourth one-dayer by six wickets in their last outing and Mahendra Singh Dhoni’s men will now aim to end the series on a high.Sri Lanka, on the other hand, never bargained to be 1-3 down with just one to play in the one-day series and Mahela Jayawardene’s men will hope to salvage some pride by making it 2-3 rather than facing the 1-4 ignominy.Jayawardene was honest in his assessment that the hosts were simply not good enough against the world champions and blamed their inconsistency for the sorry state.The hosts came to Colombo with series level at 1-1. Given the consistent home favour in the history of games at the Premadasa, the expectations were high from the home team to press ahead the home advantage.But it was not to be. Rather, it was Dhoni’s men who created history at Premadasa by comfortably winning the third and fourth ODI by five and six wickets respectively.For Sri Lanka, it was not just inconsistency but more of an under-performance which has never been seen in a home series of such high stake.Apart from Kumar Sangakkara’s brilliant 133 in the first game at Hambantota, Sri Lankans have been below par. Take the case of Tillakaratne Dilshan.The opener has failed to fire at the top with only one 50 in the four outings. His partner Tharanga was slightly better getting two 50s.Jayawardene himself has been patchy. His decision to drop down the order to allow the young Dinesh Chandimal to take charge has not proved to be a wise option and the Sri Lankan captain would do well to return to his familiar position to see if he could inspire the team on Saturday.The middle-order of Angelo Mathews and Chandimal have produced only flashes of brilliance while Thisara Perera’s allround efforts were not at par with his performance against Pakistan.Sri Lanka also have been suffering from a series of injury worries.Losing in-form Sangakkara after the third ODI following his fracture in the little finger of his right hand has affected their cause.The fast bowling unit also looks bare with as many as six pacers being out through injuries. Lasith Malinga has been leading the attack but has accounted for only five wickets in four games, while giving away runs at a premium.Jayawardene now wants a decent performance from his team in the last ODI at Kandy and then his focus will be on the availability of resources ahead of a busy schedule.”I need to speak to the management and see how best we can do that. I know a couple of guys are really struggling with fatigue. We will see what the options are and try and motivate them to go out and take up the challenge, he said.advertisement
Durant didn’t practice with the Warriors on Tuesday, and he has yet to get on the court for a structured session since getting injured May 8 in Game 5 against the Houston Rockets. Durant was set to some work on the court later Tuesday at the practice facility.Guard Klay Thompson practiced two days after sustaining a mild strain to his left hamstring that forced him out of Game 2.

(Nathan Denette/The Canadian Press via AP)OAKLAND, Calif. (AP) — The Golden State Warriors will take the floor once more without two-time reigning NBA Finals MVP Kevin Durant, counting on their depth and home court to carry them as they try to inch closer to a three-peat.Durant is out for Game 3 of the finals on Wednesday night, still not ready to return for the two-time defending champions as he works back from a strained right calf suffered during the Western Conference semifinals.ADVERTISEMENT All that after he had been out with a torn left quadriceps muscle sustained in Game 2 of the first round against the Clippers. Cousins didn’t even make his season debut until Jan. 18 at the Clippers following a nearly yearlong absence while recovering from surgery for a torn left Achilles tendon.RAPTORS SHOOTINGToronto went just 35 for 94 (37.2 in Game 2, compared to 50.6% while winning the series opener, including 11 of 38 from 3-point range. The Raptors’ missed shots and defensive stops are exactly what the Warriors count on to get out into their push-the-pace transition game.“It’s always a game of rhythm a little bit and you have to watch what’s happening. As you know, we talk a lot about our shot spectrum, the shots we’re trying to get,” Nurse said. “We have to get a certain amount of paint touches. We have to get the ball side to side. Those are things you just have to keep an eye on. I think we just had some lulls in those three areas in Game 2.”The Raptors were outscored 18-0 to start the third — “the quarter from hell” as Nurse called it — and that all but did them in before a late rally that fell short.GOLDEN DEPTHKerr prepares his role players all season to be ready for moments on the big stage — because Kerr was one of the backups in his day. At home, Quinn Cook, who scored nine points with three 3-pointers in the fourth quarter, regularly resumes his shooting routine moments after the final buzzer sounds.With all the injuries, all the Warriors must be ready to contribute.“The way that we play, everybody feels involved on both ends of the floor and has an opportunity to impact the game, not necessarily scoring every possession but just playing within the flow and sharing the ball, moving, playing unselfishly,” Stephen Curry said. “Just a style where everybody is going to get touches and you just have to be confident and aggressive. So again, day to day it’s just whoever is healthy. Be ready to go, compete, have fun doing it. Whoever is out there on the floor, just feel like you can help us win the game.” Don’t mind Kawhi Leonard’s limp. Like Thompson, little will keep Toronto’s star guard off the court on the NBA’s biggest stage. Not with no more than five games left.“A hundred percent,” Leonard said of his health. “I’m on the floor. There are no excuses. Everybody knows everyone’s banged up, bruised up at this moment.”Leonard is averaging 30.9 points this postseason.BOX-AND-ONE?Raptors coach Nick Nurse was still hearing about his move to use an old school box-and-one with Fred VanVleet on Curry.“In ninth grade a team played one against me,” Kerr joked. “Very proud to announce that. I had a box-and-one, just like Steph.”“Yeah, I know, everybody’s making fun of me for it, right?” Nurse quipped.COUSINS’ IMPACTDeMarcus Cousins shined during his first NBA Finals start and just the fourth postseason game of his career.The big man had 11 points, 10 rebounds, six assists and two blocked shots over 28 minutes while playing in foul trouble in the 109-104 Game 2 win Sunday.

Hopefully, I’ll feel much better tomorrow and be a go for tipoff,” Thompson said.Along with Durant, Golden State is also down backup big man Kevon Looney. He suffered a non-displaced cartilage fracture on the right side of his collarbone area and will miss the remainder of the finals.“He’s had such a great season, such a great postseason run,” coach Steve Kerr said. “Fortunately it won’t affect his future, but it’s a big loss for us.”Here are some things to watch for going into Game 3:KAWHI SORE?
