The value in Brisbane will definitely bring interstate buyers into our market according to Haesley Cush.RECENTLY I was involved with the auctioning of the symbolic first tray of mangoes at the Brisbane Markets.I’ve been calling this auction for the past ten years and I’ve watched the generous men and women from the markets raise nearly $1 million for Queensland charities, this year for MnD and Me and Diabetes Queensland.The sale of these mangoes gives me a different view of the economy each year. At its peak we sold them for $76,000, this year it was $13,000.We are also still seeing sections of the property market moving at significantly different speeds.More from newsParks and wildlife the new lust-haves post coronavirus16 hours agoNoosa’s best beachfront penthouse is about to hit the market16 hours agoThe Brisbane apartment market is waking up and buyers are back in the market. We have been contacted by three separate buyers agents this week looking for apartments in Brisbane for interstate clients. This was unheard of last year. A SIMPLE WAY TO MAKE BIG PROFITS The prestige market is now wide awake and there have been a number of sales for more than $5 million with a lot more listings hitting realestate.com.au each week.However, there are still parts of the market showing exceptional value. Our mid-range market is strong value – think the houses above your suburb’s median price but below the top priced homes in your area.These homes are representing great value and history will likely reflect that this soft patch was the time to buy and upgrade.We are now about to enter the hottest annual part of the property cycle. The value in Brisbane will definitely bring interstate buyers into our market and this will again mean property prices will shift another gear and create a new stream in the local property market. read more

first_imgOil and gas company Tower Resources has delayed the completion date for its Thali PSC farm-out over coronavirus pandemic but still hopes to start drilling the Njom-3 well before mid-September.Source: Tower ResourcesTower said on Monday that petroleum operations in Cameroon were affected by consequences of the Covid-19 pandemic, including international travel restrictions and Cameroon’s travel restrictions introduced on March 17.Since the company, and other service providers, are temporarily limited in what they can do locally, the company notified the Ministry of Mines, Industry and Technological Development (MINMIDT) last week of an event of force majeure under the Thali PSC regulations.Under force majeure, all obligations are temporarily suspended, so the same period of about seven months remaining under the current exploration period as of March 17 should remain once the force majeure period ends, without any further extension being requested.Tower informed the Ministry that it was still possible to spud the Njom-3 well before September 15 despite the force majeure, if the situation returns to normal quickly enough, but at this moment this is inherently uncertain. However, the company remains committed to drilling Njom-3 as quickly as possible. It is worth reminding that Njom-3 drilling was previously set for June this year.It is worth noting that the oil firm and OilLR agreed to amend their heads of terms to extend the proposed completion date of the Thali PSC farm-out to June 30. The two firms executed initial binding heads of terms in respect of a farm-out to OilLR of a 24.5 percent working interest in the Thali PSC earlier this month.Even though OilLR’s intended investors have the funds to complete the intended farm-in, both parties agreed that the transaction couldn’t be completed until the environment stabilizes sufficiently for the project to move forward.The company is also continuing discussions with other potential investors in the Thali PSC, and while it fully expects OilLR to complete the agreed farm-in as set out in the heads of terms, Tower agreed with OilLR that in the event it receives additional offers of firmly committed funds which aggregate to more than $15 million, and if OilLR is unable to make an escrow payment on an agreed schedule, then the company will have the right to reduce OilLR’s share of the total farm-out down to a minimum of $5 million to accommodate the other potential investors.This is to ensure that extending the completion schedule will not materially delay Tower’s access to funding from other sources as well. The other terms of the heads of terms with OilLR remain unchanged.Jeremy Asher, Tower’s chairman and CEO, said: “We are glad that our partners at OilLR remain committed to the Thali project despite recent market upheavals and despite the operational delays required by the global response to the Covid-19 pandemic.“[…] the Thali project economics remain very attractive at current Brent prices, with forward prices still well above $40 per barrel during our expected production period. The force majeure provisions of our PSC are designed to provide breathing space in precisely this kind of situation, and we are already planning and discussing with service companies how we can move forward as quickly as possible when things return closer to normal.”Spotted a typo?

first_img The Uruguayan was keen to leave the club over the summer, but he ultimately stayed put and has impressed since returning from the suspension which was carried over from last season for biting Chelsea’s Branislav Ivanovic. Werner told the Daily Mirror: “There was interest in him from other clubs throughout the summer but it was important for us to try to keep him. “He is one of the great players of the world and we felt that we would be a stronger club with him than without him. “That does not mean I don’t respect his intense desire to play in the Champions League. But it would be a very happy day next May if and when we get to the Champions League by finishing in the top four and he is part of it. “It is our intention to keep him for a while. “Our intention is to build a winning club and he is integral to that. The past is the past and I have great affection for him personally.” Liverpool chairman Tom Werner intends to provide Luis Suarez with Champions League football at Anfield next season.center_img Press Associationlast_img read more

first_img “I brought Alan into this club as part of my squad. He’s as much responsible as myself, Ray Wilkins, John Hill and Mike Priest, we are all in this together,” said Meulensteen, himself originally drafted in at Craven Cottage to work alongside former boss Martin Jol. “I wanted Alan here for these scenarios. He is utterly 100 per cent supportive of me, Ray and all the others. “We keep making sure we move forward in the right way and get the right plan together for the next couple of months.” Meulensteen feels Khan has shown his commitment by backing the manager with some big spending in January, although Fulham will not be able to use £11million deadline day signing Kostas Mitroglou, Johnny Heitinga or Lewis Holtby in the cup tie against the Blades. “It was a huge statement of intent to back us with the transfer money,” the Dutchman said. “I stay in regular contact with him and all I can do is live up to his expectations – and that is what I intend to do.” Meulensteen insisted he did not believe the axe was set to be wielded for a second time this season. “He doesn’t do anything knee-jerk, he thinks about things and there’s a rationale to everything,” the Fulham manager added. The Cottagers slipped to the bottom of the table after they were beaten 3-0 at home by Southampton on Saturday, but have the chance to record a much-needed win against Sky Bet League One outfit Sheffield United in their FA Cup fourth-round replay on Tuesday night. Meulensteen feels he has “100 per cent” support from owner Shahid Khan and is not about to “lose any sleep” over reports recently appointed technical director Alan Curbishley was being lined up to replace him should results continue to nosedive. “His whole business is built on getting the right people in, and trusting them to do the right things.” Meulensteen was part of Sir Alex Ferguson’s coaching staff at Manchester United which helped deliver three Premier League titles as well as the 2008 Champions League crown. The Dutchman, who took charge at Fulham following Jol’s departure in December, remains in regular contact with Ferguson and intends to use some of those pointers from his former boss in the battles ahead over the run-in. “I have spoken to him like I do, on and off. Sometimes he rings me and sometimes I ring him. He is always a phone call away,” said Meulensteen. “I have always felt that whenever we stared into adversity or disappointment, I have always found him remarkably strong in those moments. “You could never spot any doubt in his words or behaviour. “That always transferred back to the players. I want to do exactly the same.” Meulensteen continued: “At the very top you find the highest quality, and quality players, you don’t have to motivate them for a start. “Here it’s more you need to be much more constructive, more repetitive. “Sometimes I have to say, ‘hold on, Rene, you’re not in the same environment’. “You have to look at the squad and make sure they feel comfortable with what they are doing. That is how you come to a solution which will help us.” Press Association Fulham manager Rene Meulensteen says his players and staff are “all in this together” as the club look to stay in the Barclays Premier League.last_img read more

first_img It said: “The club is disappointed with the timing of yesterday’s announcement made by The FA. “We feel we have been prejudiced right from the outset. The FA introduced a new policy to handle our application on the back of consultations with the City Till We Die group, and we therefore feel that our application was already pre-judged. “This feeling has been reinforced with yesterday’s announcement, as the club feels this will further prejudice the forthcoming ballot of season pass holders. “However, this is now the time for the silent majority to come forward and support the club’s aspirations. Details of the ballot will be released to season pass holders within the next 48 hours.” Press Association City confirmed on Tuesday that they will poll season ticket holders over the proposal to re-brand the club as “Hull Tigers”, and accused the Football Association of being prejudiced after learning that its membership committee had recommended the Full Council to reject Allam’s proposal at its meeting on April 9. The City Till We Die campaign group is confident any poll will result in a “no” vote, and hope that will be the end of the matter despite the owner’s stated intention to walk away if he does not get the answer he wants from the FA. Spokesperson Mark Gretton said: “We have said from the start, this has not been an anti-Allam campaign, and we have taken a lot of care to make sure it hasn’t been. We are more than happy to work with them. “If more revenue is needed at the club – and we recognise absolutely we need to grow the brand, we would be delighted with that. “In many ways, the Allams have been excellent owners of our club and whatever happens, we have a lot to be thankful to them for. “When they stepped in, the club was in a parlous position. It’s been the issue of the name-change which has caused the problem. “We have been broadly happy with what’s happened under the Allams’ ownership of the club and we would like this to be finished. That’s why we welcome a season ticket holders’ poll. “If we can get a popular vote against the name change, we are not going to crow about it, we have no need to. “Hopefully, he would just abandon the plan and we could say, ‘Well done for being the bigger man’. We’d be delighted about that and we could start afresh.” The Tigers board released a statement on Tuesday afternoon claiming their application had been pre-judged. Hull fans have urged owner Assem Allam to forget about his plan to change the club’s name and repair his relationship with supporters. last_img read more
