The home at 17 Bernborough Way, Ningi. Picture: supplied.This acreage property offers the best of both worlds sitting 10 minutes from Bribie Island and the Bruce Highway. The 3375sq m block at 17 Bernborough Way, Ningi, comes with an architecturally-designed home, a resort-style swimming pool area, sheds and established gardens. Owners Bob and Rosina Wilson have called the place home for the past 15 years and have improved the property in that time. The home at 17 Bernborough Way, Ningi. Picture: supplied.Mr Wilson said some of the major things they had done included adding walkways around the swimming pool, covering the back entertaining area and installing a caravan shed. “The entertaining area and the pool are probably the best looking part of the property,” he said. “The great-grandkids love the pool. They arrive with their togs when they come to visit.“It’s a great pool because it has a waterfall that goes into an infants’ pool that is only about 30cm deep and 2m in diameter. The little kids think it’s wonderful.” The kitchen at 17 Bernborough Way, Ningi. Picture: supplied.Mr Wilson said the best thing about the home was that it had plenty of space. “There are three living areas and the main bedroom, ensuite and walk-in wardrobe are all extra big,” he said. The two-storey house has an open-plan living, dining and kitchen area flowing out to the poolside patio. The kitchen has a gas cooktop and electric oven.

RelatedPosts Tyson Fury to Anthony Joshua: Don’t risk fighting Usyk Dillian Whyte to face Povetkin in November rematch Anthony Joshua wants Tyson Fury, Wilder fight Dillian Whyte has told William Hill that Deontay Wilder is set for more disappointment when he faces Tyson Fury in the concluding part of their trilogy fight later this year.“What’s he going to change [from the two previous fights]?” Whyte told William Hill. “He’s been doing the same thing for years.“He’s an aggressive front foot fighter, but he can’t fight on the back foot. He hasn’t even learned to jab.“He hasn’t even learned how to throw a hook properly. It’s just the right hand he’s had.“Deontay Wilder is going to get beaten up again.”On the prospect of Wilder losing to Fury, Whyte commented: “Delight is the wrong word. I don’t take delight in anyone losing.” Fury has said he would be willing to give mandatory challenger Whyte a shot at his WBC world heavyweight title as he deserves it, though Whyte isn’t so sure the world champion will deliver on his words.“All respect, but let’s see if he follows through,” Whyte said. “Because he said that one week and the next, he said something else. Let’s see if he follows through.“Fury knows where I’m at, he knows me. We’ve known each other for a long time. If he wants it, then…”Whyte went on to talk about another fight due to take place later this year: Anthony Joshua vs Kubrat Pulev.Joshua and Pulev were originally due to meet in October 2017, only for the Bulgarian to pull out due to injury, but as the IBF’s world heavyweight mandatory challenger, Pulev has been given another shot. “This fight’s long overdue, it’s gone on a bit too long,” Whyte told William Hill. “You know, with Pulev the fight’s on and then he pulls out. It is what it is – it’s just a mandatory fight. It’s a mandatory fight, that’s all it is.“It’s not a fight you would take voluntarily, it’s a mandatory fight because Pulev doesn’t bring much to the table really, does he? Anthony Joshua is a big draw and he draws people out, so it’s the Joshua show.”Tags: Dillian WhyteTyson FuryWilliam Hill
And while Rodgers is the first to admit Gerrard offers so much in terms of his experience and leadership he stressed it should not be forgotten his quality as a player endures. “It’s remarkable really; you saw him in the game during the week as well,” said the Reds boss. “What gets lost with Steven sometimes is that people talk about him as this great captain and a great leader, and what people forget is that he’s still a world-class player. He’s got big talent. “He scored what you would probably say was a typical Gerrard goal the other night – breaking forward with power and pace and just when it looked like it was getting away from him, he reached and got his toe to it with a great finish. “It’s something I’ve been fully aware of since I’ve been here. He’s probably the best player that I’ve ever worked with at tempo. “The quality he can play with when the tempo is really high in a game is incredible. “I’ve been fortunate enough to have worked with top, world-class players at Chelsea and some brilliant technicians when I was at Swansea. “He’s a remarkable man and a remarkable captain. England should be honoured to have someone like that represent them on and off the field. Press Association Liverpool captain Steven Gerrard stands on the verge of a Premier League landmark with manager Brendan Rodgers showering glowing praise on a “remarkable man”. “I’ve said it before and I’ll repeat it again – he looks after himself so well and he’s so professional and he’s still got a number of years left in him yet to turn in great performances.” Gerrard was criticised for being uninspiring by former England international Terry Butcher in his role as a television pundit in midweek. But the midfielder’s leadership skills have always been about deeds rather than words and Rodgers believes Gerrard commands such respect that when he speaks his team-mates are compelled to listen. Rodgers feels next summer will be Gerrard’s international swansong – although the player himself may feel differently – and hopes he can go to Brazil and sign off in style. “It has been well documented about England and their (lack of) achievements,” he said. “At that level there is no doubt over the last 10 years he has been exceptional in his performances. “He’s won 100-odd caps now and has put himself out there no matter where he is playing. “I think he probably knows next year will be his last shot and I’m sure he’ll be giving everything. “I know from working closely with him that he’s very proud to play for his country. “I think he has always carried the can here (at Liverpool) for so many years. He is a wonderful ambassador for England. “He always thinks of others and I think he has been honoured by being given the captaincy and how he has led is a wonderful example for the players there. “Steven doesn’t say a great deal but when he does the senior players and others around them will listen because he is a respected figure. “He takes a real responsibility within the group, he doesn’t just think about himself and Liverpool and England have benefited from it.” At the other end of the scale academy youngster Harry Wilson made his senior debut for Wales this week. Rodgers, however, warned against unrealistic expectations. “He’s not near the Premier League. I was surprised (by his debut) to be honest, I think Wales had a lot of injuries,” he said. “He’s a very talented young player and to have him here at the club is brilliant. “I had a call from Ian Rush to say that he had done well in training and that (Wales manager) Chris Coleman was very pleased with how he had been, and the possibilities of having him involved. “It escalated from there. He did well in training and was then put into the squad. “He knows he’ll have a great opportunity here if he continues to develop at Liverpool. “It’s important that we just stay calm and let him develop at his own rate.” The England skipper needs one goal to chalk up 100 in the Premier League as the campaign resumes this weekend. He heads to Newcastle in good form having led the national team superbly in their last two World Cup qualifiers, ultimately scoring the second goal late on against Poland which safeguarded their passage to Brazil.
Press Association The Honduran midfielder has been plagued by injury problems, most notably to his knee, during his time at the Britannia Stadium. The club tried to sell the 30-year-old to Qatar Sport Club last summer, but he failed a medical and returned to Stoke, where he failed to make a first-team appearance last season. Now he is looking for a new club. Wilkinson, 30, has also been released by his boyhood club after making 194 appearances over 15 years. Sorensen played 129 times for Stoke over a seven-year spell. Nine of the Under-21s squad have also been released following the expiration of their contracts, whilst George Waring, Peter Skapetis, Joel Taylor and Mason Watkins-Clark have been offered new deals. A Stoke statement read: “The club would like to thank those departing for their efforts and wish them all the best for the future.” Stoke announced on Friday that Palacios, long-serving defender Andy Wilkinson and goalkeeper Thomas Sorensen will leave the club when their contracts expire at the end of June. Stoke signed Palacios from Tottenham for £6million in 2011, but he has started just 14 league games since. Wilson Palacios’ nightmare spell at Stoke has come to an end after the club released him on a free transfer.
Press Association Chris Bruton scored his 13th goal of the season as the Clan came from behind to win, Scott Pitt and Ben Davies also on target after Joey Martin’s opener. The Nottingham Panthers established themselves as the Devils’ closest challengers, moving up to second with a 5-2 victory at the Manchester Storm. Chris Lawrence was on target twice. Elite League leaders the Cardiff Devils suffered a shock 3-1 loss to the Braehead Clan. Jordan Pietrus’ late goal earned the Coventry Blaze a 3-2 victory at Sheffield Steelers to end the hosts’ five-match winning run. Elsewhere, the Belfast Giants struck three times in the third period to win 3-1 at Edinburgh Capitals and the Dundee Stars edged out the Fife Flyers 5-4.
By Ali MartinSHAI Hope has been tipped to become a “potential great” of the game by the West Indies head coach Stuart Law, with the young batsman having shown staggering self-belief before and during their famous Headingley run chase.That the series with England is level at 1-1 going into the third Test at Lord’s tomorrow comes down chiefly to Hope’s stellar twin hundreds last week, the second of which, an unbeaten 118, helped chase down 322 for a famous five-wicket win.Law, who also lambasted those who had criticised his young side, revealed his orders to the players before the final day at Headingley were simply to assess the chances of a win after tea, only for Hope, 23 years old and averaging 18 from 11 Tests before his first-innings 147, to insist otherwise.“I remember sitting down next to him in the dressing room and saying that the plan is: we’ll bat to tea, see where we are and if we’ve got wickets in hand we’ll work out if we’re going to have a go or not,” recalled Law.“He looked at me, and I said: ‘What’s wrong with that?’ He looked at me again, shook his head and shrugged his shoulders – and I said: ‘OK, what’s your plan?’“‘We’re going to win,’ he said. That’s God’s honest truth and he went out and won the game.”On how far Hope can progress, Law replied: “I think the fact he wasn’t over the top in his celebrations just means he’s hungry, he’s driven. He doesn’t want to stop where he’s at now – he wants to keep going.“The challenge for Shai is to stay fit and healthy. If he does that, with the drive he’s got and the mental toughness and will to work, that will just make him better and better. He’s pretty good now, but he’s got the potential to go great.”Law claimed he always had the belief in his players and had some words for his former Essex team-mate Nasser Hussain, following a newspaper column after the fourth day in which the former England captain suggested Jason Holder’s side had flagged due to the demands of Test cricket being less than Twenty20.“People make assumptions all the time,” said Law. “But he doesn’t know the characters that are inside that dressing room – he doesn’t even know me and I played with him at Essex. Not a lot of these players play T20 cricket anyway. I think it was great we sent a big humble pie to go and chomp on in the commentary box.“I’ve seen these guys at close quarters. There’s immense confidence there. There was probably a couple that doubted their ability to cope at this level, but I hope those doubts are now well and truly put to bed and they can start flourishing.” (The Guardian)
Students venturing onto campus this semester may have noticed a new mode of transportation for students. Commonly referred to as self-balancing scooters or “hoverboards,” the new vehicles resemble a Segway without the handlebars.According to Laura Lee, a senior majoring in public relations, the vehicles were initially made popular by the company IO HAWK and its active social media marketing strategies. Soon after, companies such as Airwheel also began manufacturing variations of self-balancing scooters, adding to the hype.“A lot of people know [the vehicles] as IO HAWKs,” Lee said. “They’re really good about sending their product to people that are seen using them, so that more people are starting to use them in general.”Several students who ride these scooters attributed the increase in riders on campus to the growing number of celebrities who advertise the product through social media.“I just saw a lot of people, through Instagram, having them, like Chris Brown, Justin Bieber, and people like that,” said Kyle Iverson, a senior majoring in business administration.Iverson noted that he made the switch over from skateboarding on campus to using the scooter because of how much more fun the latter was.“It’s just different, you know? It’s nothing like you’ve ever done before, so it’s like going on a roller coaster for like the first time type of feel — it’s really intriguing,” Iverson said. “Getting from Point A to B is just a lot more entertaining.”Lee, a former cyclist, said she made the switch due to the intuitive technology of the self-balancing scooter.The self-balancing scooter provides two functions: accelerate and stop. Riders simply just need to lean forward to increase speed and lean back when they wish to slow down or stop. The device makes turns by sensing the rider’s body movements.“I feel more mobile,” Lee said. “I feel like it’s more of an extension of my legs, whereas a bike is more of a tool that takes me places. It almost feels like I’m a superhero when I am on it in a way, because it’s like only me being on top of one little thing that transports me really fast.”As the number of self-balancing scooters is growing on campus, Lee acknowledged that the cost of the vehicles could serve as a huge deterrent for students who may wish to join the trend.“The thing is, it’s a very expensive toy and a lot of younger people want it, but they’re not the ones with the money to be buying it,” she said. “It’s not a product that’s easy to make cheap.”However, Lee still encourages students to test-drive the vehicle.“I feel like some people like it, some people don’t. I do think everyone should try standing on it,” Lee said. “I know that some people are scared like [I was], but once I figured out how to do it, I was obsessed.”Jordan McLaughlin, a sophomore majoring in sociology, believes that the popularity of the self-balancing scooters will continue to grow among students.“That’s the way the world is,” McLaughlin said. “How technology is moving at this point, I feel like [they are] the future.”
PITTSBURGH — Sometimes, life comes at you pretty fast.Dodgers left-hander Caleb Ferguson laughed at the idea that he would have anticipated being in the big leagues before his 22nd birthday. But he will make his major-league debut Wednesday at PNC Park.“No. Not at all,” he said Tuesday in a major-league clubhouse for the first time in his life. “Honest to God at this moment, I thought I’d still be in Tulsa (Double-A). But here we are. … I’ll talk to my parents and it’s just unbelievable.”Ferguson grew up about three hours west of Pittsburgh as a Cincinnati Reds fan in West Jefferson, Ohio, so his parents and about 40 friends and relatives will be at PNC Park for his debut. They won’t be watching him pitch for the first time – but Dodgers manager Dave Roberts will. “It was kind of hard to do (go on without thinking about it). I just tried to keep a clear head and go do what you gotta do every day. Be where your feet are, is something I always say. That’s really what I was trying to do.”Ferguson’s feet have moved up the Dodgers’ system rapidly. A year ago, he and Dennis Santana were in the starting rotation for Class-A Rancho Cucamonga. They started this season in Double-A Tulsa together. Now they will make their MLB debuts back to back in Pittsburgh.Sign up for our Inside the Dodgers newsletter.

Subscribe here.“Talking to (Dodgers director of player development) Brandon Gomes, the makeup, the mound presence, the composure – he can handle this ascension in their opinions,” Roberts said. “His fastball plays. It’s got life in the zone and he has good fastball command. That’s obviously a big part of pitching. Then the breaking ball and the change so it’s a three-pitch mix. I think what allows him to make this jump is probably just the confidence.“There’s going to be some nerves. But I had a good conversation with him about going out there and trusting yourself and making pitches. That’s all we want him to do. Go out there and be himself.”TURNER OUTJustin Turner was not in the Dodgers’ starting lineup Tuesday, giving him consecutive days off (including the team’s off day on Monday). Roberts said Turner has “been battling” some soreness in his wrist. Turner has been receiving treatment on his left wrist, the same one he fractured this spring causing him to miss the first 40 games of the season.Roberts said the two-day break was “probably prudent” but he did not consider it a cause for major concern and he expects Turner to be back in the starting lineup Wednesday.ON THE HILLLeft-hander Rich Hill threw approximately 100 pitches Tuesday afternoon in the bullpen and then a simulated-game situation. It was the second time Hill has thrown to hitters since the blister on his middle finger has calloused over but the first time he did so for part of the time with that finger uncovered. Hill warmed up in the bullpen and threw one simulated inning – about 60 pitches total – with no Band-Aid or medical tape on the finger.Related Articles Dodgers’ Justin Turner looking rejuvenated on defense Dodgers bench slumping Cody Bellinger for a day Whicker: Dustin May yet another example of the Dodgers’ eye for pitching Roberts said he had never even met Ferguson before Tuesday. Not that he didn’t try. Roberts wanted Ferguson to pitch in some Cactus League games this spring to get a look at the rising prospect “but we wanted to slow-play him a little bit” and he wasn’t ready to pitch in games.So heading into Wednesday’s game, Ferguson’s only experience against big-league hitters has come when he faced players in Double-A or Triple-A who had some major-league service time.“I think I’m ready,” Ferguson said. “But the game is going to tell me if I’m ready or not. You just have to stick with the same routine, trust the guys behind the plate and do the best you can.”Surprising as the call to the big leagues might have been for Ferguson when it actually came, he did kind of see it coming. He said his start day for Triple-A Oklahoma City was pushed back three times. When he threw his bullpen session in OKC on Sunday, he was told to use major-league baseballs.“Kind of had an idea there,” he said. “I had a little bit of an idea something was going on. … But you never want to jump to a conclusion with something like this. Dodgers’ hot-hitting Corey Seager leaves game with back injury Dodgers’ Dave Roberts says baseball’s unwritten rules ‘have changed, should change’ The blister has calloused over, Hill said, and he is eager to get back on the active roster – so much so he said he would be willing to pitch out of the bullpen while rebuilding his pitch count rather than going on a minor-league injury-rehabilitation assignment.“I’d like to come back right now,” he said with obvious frustration. “(He would pitch in a relief role) if that’s what would make the process go faster.”ALSOThe MLB draft continued Tuesday with rounds 3 through 10. Seven of the Dodgers’ eight picks were college players, including Hofstra left-hander John Rooney (third round), Louisville second baseman Devin Mann (fifth) and North Carolina State outfielder Josh McLain (ninth). It is the second time the Dodgers have drafted McLain. They selected him in the 14th round last year but McLain did not sign, instead returning to N.C. State for his senior season.UP NEXTDodgers (LHP Caleb Ferguson (MLB debut) at Pirates (RHP Trevor Williams, 5-3, 3.84 ERA), Wednesday, 4:05 p.m., SportsNet LA (where available) Newsroom GuidelinesNews TipsContact UsReport an Error
