Love, hard work and time transforms Queenslander into dream home

Picture: supplied.“Like with most old Queenslanders, nothing was ever square and the 100-year-old hardwood ensured we broke many a power tool,” she said. “The old kitchen area (was the most challenging). The floor was covered in old black glue from the existing vinyl and we were determined to keep the original floor boards. “It took us weeks of scraping the glue off with a blow torch in the end, so the boards could be sanded and restored to their original beauty.” Jenny and Ben Mears in the new kitchen and lounge room of their completely renovated Kurwongba Queenslander. Picture: Annette DewLOOKING at Ben and Jenny Mears’ Queenslander today it is hard to imagine the couple once had to spend weeks scrapping old glue off timber floorboards to save the original feature.When the couple first laid eyes on their Kurwongbah home more than a decade ago it was painted mint green, had outdated bathrooms and vinyl flooring covered the original floorboards in the kitchen. But Mrs Mears said it was love at first sight. “Being an interior designer and stylist, I could see the potential. My husband could see the work but all I could see was potential,” she said. “It just needed love.” The house at 41 Scout Rd, Kurwongbah before the renovation.

The Mears’ bought the property 11 years ago and moved in with their two sons. The couple said they “chipped away” at the renovation for 10 years. “The first two years were extremely busy and we worked on it nearly every day,” Mrs Mears said. “We did a lot of the work ourselves except for the major building works.“A lot of earth works were done to allow for a shed and front entrance and patio. Nothing in the house was left untouched.” The rumpus room before the renovation.

Ozil decision scuppered Arsenal’s chance of signing Spanish playmaker

first_imgMesut Ozil’s decision to remain at Arsenal in January reportedly scuppered the club’s hopes of signing a Spanish playmaker. Loading… Yannick Carrasco was allegedly another target for the Gunners, but he completed a move back to Atletico Madrid from Dalian Yifang as Arsenal just added two defenders, Pablo Mari and Cedric Soares, during the window. Meanwhile, Unai Emery has admitted “several problems” cost him his Arsenal job after just 18 months in charge – and reckons his successor Mikel Arteta will steer the club through choppy waters. Emery was sacked as Arsenal manager at the end of November after the Gunners had gone seven games without a win. The 48-year-old Spaniard steered Arsenal to the final of the Europa League in his first season in charge. Arsenal also finished fifth in the Premier League, missing out on a top-four place by just one point. read also:Man Utd to reignite interest in £90m defensive powerhouse But he says he was undermined by off-field issues such as the Mesut Ozil-Sead Kolasinac car-jacking incident on a London street and Nicolas Pepe’s struggle to adapt to English football following his club-record £72million FacebookTwitterWhatsAppEmail分享 The Sunday Mirror stares that the Gunners wanted to bring Dani Olmo to the club last month but could not strike a deal because Ozil wanted to stay at The Emirates. It is claimed that Mikel Arteta would have been willing to let Ozil leave the club in January, with the former Germany international actually receiving an offer from the Middle East on deadline day. However, Arteta did not have enough time to replace the German, while two of his top targets had already moved on, meaning no deal was struck for Ozil to go. One of those targets was Olmo, who completed a bargain £17million move from Dinamo Zagreb to RB Leipzig in January after scoring eight goals and providing seven assists in the first half of this season.

Villa swoop for Sanchez

first_img Sanchez has joined, subject to international clearance, for an undisclosed fee on a four-year deal. The 28-year-old, nicknamed “The Rock”, played for his country at this summer’s World Cup in Brazil. Villa boss Paul Lambert said: “Carlos is a very experienced professional who played a prominent role in a Colombian team which captured everyone’s imagination at this summer’s World Cup in Brazil. He’s a great coup for Villa. “He does the simple things really well and he’s excellent at spotting the danger, dealing with it and keeping it simple. “His physical strength, too, is something we will benefit from in the middle of the pitch and his role will be a really important one for the team. “We’ve beaten other teams to bring him here to Villa and I’m delighted as we needed someone of his ilk to come in. He’ll be an excellent player for the club.” Sanchez, who played for Valenciennes in France for six years before moving to Spanish outfit Elche last summer, has always wanted to ply his trade in England. “I’m delighted to be here, it’s something I have always dreamed of and it is very important for me to be here at Aston Villa, not only for me but for my family as well,” Sanchez said. “It was always my aim to play in this country and in this league and I know Villa well as Juan Pablo (Angel, his compatriot) also played here. “I began to watch Villa games when he came in 2001. He was a goalscorer who was very important to this club and I followed his time here because he was always scoring goals. Press Association “Since I was a boy I have always followed English football, particularly teams where Colombians have played. “When I had the chance to come to this club I had no doubts because I know this is a big club in the Premier League.” His arrival at Villa follows their recruitment this summer of Joe Cole, Philippe Senderos, Kieran Richardson and Aly Cissokho. Aston Villa have announced the signing of Colombia defensive midfielder Carlos Sanchez from Elche.last_img read more

MBB : Syracuse ties best start in school history with win

first_img Facebook Twitter Google+ Comments Published on January 14, 2012 at 12:00 pm Contact Mark: mcooperj@syr.edu | @mark_cooperjrcenter_img Nineteen wins into the season, Syracuse is still focused.The Orange matched a record set by the 1999-00 team for the best start to a season in school history with Saturday’s 78-55 win over Providence. SU is also the only team that is undefeated in Big East play. But SU head coach Jim Boeheim said the team is still as focused as it was for the season opener, which has so far prevented any slip-ups.‘We’re just trying to get ready for the next game and that’s all we’ve thought about and that’s all we’ll keep doing,’ Boeheim said. ‘That’s just the only way to approach basketball games. You don’t get ready, you’re going to get beat.‘We just got to get ready every night. Watching games today, a couple teams didn’t get ready, they got beat. Simple as that.’If SU beats Pittsburgh in its next game on Monday, it will also be a giant step for Boeheim in the college coaching records. Boeheim won his 875th career game Saturday and is one win shy of tying Adolph Rupp for fourth all-time among Division-I head coaches.AdvertisementThis is placeholder textSyracuse dismantled a Friars team that was coming off a 31-point win over No. 14 Louisville. Providence was missing its leading scorer, Vincent Council, but the Orange once again showed no signs of weakness.Dion Waiters said that SU has had its lapses. Against Marquette, the Orange led by 18 at halftime and let the Golden Eagles come back and nearly take the lead in the second half.Fortunately, the SU guard said, Syracuse has still managed to win those games and learn from them. The Orange has stayed undefeated and hasn’t let the No. 1 ranking affect its play.‘We’ve been trying to get better every game,’ SU guard Scoop Jardine said. ‘Never beating ourselves and always focusing on that game right there that we’re about to be in.’The Orange faces Pittsburgh on Monday. The Panthers dealt SU its first loss of last season, spurring a four-game losing streak that put a damper on Syracuse’s 18-0 start.SU forward Kris Joseph said that if and when the Orange falls for the first time, he will make sure a losing streak doesn’t follow.‘That will definitely be something that we’re going to be reminded of,’ Joseph said, ‘and I’m sure I’ll voice my opinion on that and Scoop will do the same so we won’t let that happen.‘For now, we’re enjoying the win streak.’mcooperj@syr.edulast_img read more

Trojans head to Tucson looking for win

first_imgUSC men’s basketball coach Kevin O’Neill knows it hasn’t been the easiest season.Over the last two months, the Trojans have won once — a 62-45 home victory over injury-riddled Utah. They rank last in the Pac-12 in nearly every offensive category from points per game to field goal percentage. And if things keep up, O’Neill’s bunch will likely break a two-decade-long program record for most losses in a single season — a mark set in 1989 when the Trojans finished the year 10-22.Tough stretch · Freshman guard Alexis Moore and the Trojans are 1-13 in Pac-12 play this year. Two of their last four games are on the road. – Chris Pham | Daily Trojan“The fact that we’re injured, we have a ceiling as a team,” the third-year coach said.But with at least five games left to play, including the Pac-12 tournament in mid-March, USC (6-21, 1-13) still has a handful of lasting opportunities to salvage its trying season — at least somewhat.The Trojans square off against Arizona on Thursday in Tucson.“Whenever we get out on the court, regardless of our situation, we still have to play hard,” freshman guard Byron Wesley said. “If we have a losing record like we do right now, we’re still going to try to get the win. That’s not going to make us quit.”There haven’t been a ton of bright spots for USC this season, but Wesley, among other younger players, has proven to be a glimmer of hope in an otherwise forgettable year.The 6-foot-5 guard has averaged 34.2 minutes per game — about 20 more than O’Neill anticipated he would get last August. But because of injuries that have left the Trojans with six scholarship players healthy enough to suit up, Wesley, who hails from nearby Etiwanda, Calif., has taken on a larger role, particularly on the offensive end.In the month of February, with sophomore center Dewayne Dedmon and junior forward Aaron Fuller out of the lineup, Wesley has averaged 12.8 points per game, and his on-the-season average of 8.4 points per game pits him seventh among Pac-12 freshmen. In the team’s last game against UCLA, a 64-54 loss, Wesley matched a career-high in scoring with 16 points.“I need to help our team and that is going to be by scoring,” Wesley said. “[O’Neill’s] telling me to just drive the ball, look for my teammates and try to get them open shots. If not, he wants me to score.”Similarly, sophomore forward Garrett Jackson has been thrust into a starring role in recent weeks and relied upon for scoring as well. Following Fuller’s season ending injury, Jackson has started the last nine games, averaging 11.2 points per game.O’Neill has taken notice.“A lot of individuals have improved,” he said. “Byron Wesley, to me, has become a legitimate scorer. Garett’s averaged double-figures as a starter. Overall, these guys have continued to play hard and continued to fight. That’s what we want them to do.”At the very least, the Trojans will have to play hard against Arizona (19-9, 10-5) — one of three Pac-12 teams O’Neill called “deserving” of an NCAA tournament at-large berth. The Wildcats, who boast three players averaging double-figures in guard Kyle Fogg, forwards Solomon Hill and Jesse Perry, have won five of their last six games — their lone blemish a nine-point loss at first-place Washington Saturday.“Those guys have really carried their team,” O’Neill said. “Those guys are all talented guys. They’ve got some veterans who have really anchored their team and done a good job.”One player who has anchored USC and will be asked to do so for the remainder of the year has been sophomore guard Maurice Jones, who has averaged 38 minutes per game this season, and his 13.7 points per game average ranks first on the team.But as the Trojans have lost 14 of their last 15 games, the 5-foot-7 guard hasn’t exactly been able to stop the bleeding.“We just have to keep playing,” Jones said. “We just have to get through it.”The Wildcats have lost just three times at home all season.“They don’t lose there very often,” O’Neill said. “It’ll be a challenging place to play.”Tip-off is scheduled for 5:30 p.m. at the McKale Center and will be televised by Fox Sports Arizona.last_img read more

UW’s Landisch thrives in first season as starter

first_imgAfter breaking his ankle during his junior year of high school, senior linebacker Derek Landisch thought his dream of playing football at Wisconsin was over.Fast forward five years. Landisch is now one of the key cogs on the Wisconsin defense and is having his best season on the team.Growing up Nashotah, Wisconsin, just over an hour away from Madison, Landisch was one of those kids with Badger dreams. His sights were set on playing football for Wisconsin. Then he broke his ankle during the most critical year for college football recruitment.“It probably taught me the biggest life lesson I’ve had thus far when I was sitting in the car with a broken ankle, wondering whether or not I was going to be able to play college football,” Landisch said.Landisch had to get noticed by Division I programs and showing his skills on the high school field was not an option. Rather, he was forced to garner Wisconsin’s attention through summer camps.Despite the injury, Landisch fought his way to Madison after receiving a scholarship from the previous regime at Wisconsin.While not at linebacker, Landisch still managed to find playing time during his freshman season, playing in all 14 games – primarily on special teams – and won the 2011 UW Rookie of the Year Award.But even after a strong freshman season, playing time at linebacker didn’t appear to be on the horizon for Landisch anytime soon.Such distinguished Wisconsin players as Mike Taylor and Chris Borland were anchoring the linebackers going into the 2012 season, making it hard for Landisch to see the field. Even while he waited for his opportunity at linebacker, Landisch saw his time behind Taylor and Borland as a great opportunity.“You could look at it like, ‘It’s going to be tough, I might not get a chance to play,’ but it was also a blessing in disguise, the way I got to see those guys work and learn,” Landisch said. “I’d say that really helped me in my development at a young age was seeing how those guys prepared and how those guys took care of their business.”Once last season came to an end, Landisch immediately began looking forward to this season knowing it was finally his time to be a starting linebacker at Wisconsin. The likes of Taylor and Borland had since moved on and it was up to Landisch, and the other new starters, to make a name for themselves on a revamped defense.However, while this season is Landisch’s first as a starter, he came into it having played the second-most games on the team, although he started in only three of those games over the course of his first three seasons.“I played in a lot of football games and might not have had the label of a starter,” Landisch said. “But to me, if I’m rotating in every series, it doesn’t matter to me. Just getting that experience was really valuable. Football is football, so once you step in between the white lines it’s just time to play.“My mindset was I have to step up and be a leader and you have big shoes to fill. Not try to push it, but there is room for stepping up and I felt like I needed to step up and be one of the leaders on this defense,” Landisch said.Now, as one of the starting inside linebackers for Wisconsin, Landisch is finally making a name for himself. He has the most tackles for loss (10) and is second on the team in total tackles with 41. Landisch also leads the team in sacks (four) and has one of the team’s four interceptions on the season.For Wisconsin head coach Gary Andersen, it’s Landisch’s awareness and pre-snap reads that have thrust him into being one of the Badgers’ best defensive players.“[Landisch’s] quick to move,” Gary Andersen said in his news conference Monday. “If you watch him, whenever that ball is snapped, he’s got a key on whatever he’s supposed to be keyed in on, whether it be a tailback, a tight end that’s offset on the line of scrimmage. He’s not just setting there looking at seven guys and ‘periffing’ the ball is what we talk about, and once he gets there, he’s an athletic kid and a good tackler.”Landisch’s performance this season has been just one of a few strong performances from the rest of the linebackers this season. Along with Landisch, linebackers Joe Schobert, Vince Biegel and Marcus Trotter all rank in the top-five for tackles this season on the Wisconsin defense, making the linebackers one of the strongest positions on the field for UW.“Derek’s performance has been huge,” Biegel said. “Derek has been our rock in the middle. Me and Joe [Schobert] have been the anchors on the outside, so we’re going to continue to do that the rest of the season.”With a maximum seven games remaining in Landisch’s career at Wisconsin, he’s not looking too far in advance. For him, it’s about preparing only for the next game ahead, which is large reason as to why he may not only be the best linebacker at Wisconsin, but one of the best in the Big Ten.“I have no idea yet,” Landisch said of his future. “I’m just focused on Rutgers, taking it one week at a time.”Regardless of what the future may hold for Landisch, the lessons he learned from his high school injury keeps everything in perspective, and gives him motivation going forward.“Just keep your head down and keep working,” he said.last_img read more

Bourama Sidibe still battling through ‘terrible’ tendinitis condition

first_imgDETROIT — A few minutes into a light practice Thursday afternoon, Syracuse freshman forward Bourama Sidibe was flying high. After rising up for a left-handed jam, he ducked his head so it didn’t hit the backboard. He landed on both feet and smiled as he jogged to his next station in the shootaround.But less than 21 hours earlier, Sidibe hobbled around University of Dayton Arena. He played just six minutes on the court and recorded one rebound. He was sidelined for most of the game due to tendinitis in his left knee.The contrast in Sidibe’s condition over the past two days epitomizes his ongoing battle with tendinitis, a condition in which the tissue connecting muscle to bone becomes inflamed, according to WebMD. Sidibe said Thursday that he first felt discomfort in his left knee last May. When he arrived at SU in the fall, the condition increasingly grew worse. He said it has bothered him intermittently throughout the season, and he may need surgery after the season.Despite the discomfort, Sidibe knows that Syracuse likely will need him to log minutes off the bench for starting center Paschal Chukwu when the Orange (21-13, 8-10 Atlantic Coast) tips off against sixth-seeded Texas Christian. Start time is slated for 9:40 p.m. Friday night in the NCAA Tournament first round matchup at Little Caesars Arena.AdvertisementThis is placeholder text“When I’m in the game, sweating, it doesn’t feel bad that much,” Sidibe said. “If I play one minute, or two minutes, then come out, I feel it a lot. I want more playing time, then I can forget about my knee.”But after Syracuse’s win over Clemson to close out the regular season, head coach Jim Boeheim said all the Orange needs from Sidibe is a few minutes. Providing a relief for Chukwu can pay dividends late in games, he said. Sidibe also must be ready to hop in for brief stints if Chukwu runs into foul trouble.In early December, Sidibe dropped from his average of splitting about 20 minutes per game at center with Chukwu to about 10 minutes per game. He received treatment every day of the fall and has worked with trainer Brad Pike throughout the season to reduce soreness. On Dec. 27, Boeheim mentioned the possibility that SU might shut down Sidibe and apply a medical redshirt, though that never became a serious consideration.For the start of conference play, Sidibe usually played between five and 15 minutes per game, save for an explosion at Pittsburgh in January, when he notched career highs in points (18), rebounds (16) and minutes (28). But he has since hobbled around the court in his limited playing time, currently averaging 2.7 points and 3.3 boards per game.“He’s the same as he’s felt all year: terrible,” Boeheim said Thursday. “He’s been bad for the whole year. It’s not going to change today. He’s doing the best he can on it. He has pain every time he plays. It’s been hurting him. As soon as we’re done playing, we’ll get it fixed. He’s in constant pain. He can’t jump.”Sidibe impressed early this season with an uncanny ability to time shots and block them, a trait driven in part by his experience catching pigeons. That was a large reason the SU coaching staff grew interested in the 6-foot-10 forward out of St. Benedict’s (New Jersey) High School, head coach Mark Taylor said. Taylor added that Sidibe battled through tendinitis at the end of his senior season a year ago. He tailored his workouts last summer to strengthening his lower half and knee, Taylor said.While Sidibe has produced mixed results in his restricted time on the floor, both he and Boeheim know what he needs to do moving forward. Keep hobbling along to give Chukwu a relief, however brief that may be.“In the morning tomorrow they’ll notify me if, and how much, I’ll play tomorrow,” Sidibe said. “I’m waiting for the opportunity, feeling pretty good.” Comments Published on March 15, 2018 at 7:16 pm Contact Matthew: mguti100@syr.edu | @MatthewGut21 Facebook Twitter Google+last_img read more

Syracuse rallies to win final two sets and defeat Clemson 3-2

first_img Published on September 29, 2019 at 8:03 pm Contact Nick: nleconom@syr.edu Facebook Twitter Google+ After dropping the Atlantic Coast Conference opener against Georgia Tech, Syracuse (4-5, 1-1 ACC) bounced back with a dramatic five-set victory over Clemson. Sophomore Polina Shemanova led the way with 24 kills and 20 digs.The Orange were sharp in early portions of the first set. A pair of Clemson attack errors and kills from junior Yuliia Yastrub and freshmen Marina Markova put Syracuse up 6-1. Sloppy play from the outside hitters caused several attacking errors and kept Clemson close in the set.Two crucial kills from Shemanova sealed a first set win with a 25-20 score line. In the second set, Clemson’s star outside hitter Kaylin Korte took over. The redshirt junior’s four kills, combined with Syracuse attacking errors, put the Orange in a hole they couldn’t climb out of in the second set. Clemson secured the second set with a Markova attacking error.The third set was closer, but Clemson was able to win it with more great play from their outside hitters. Korte recorded another five kills in the third set, but Syracuse stayed close, even grabbing a 23-21 lead at one point. Back-to-back Clemson kills would tie the score, and though the Orange regained the lead at one point, the Tigers finished off the third set with three straight points, putting Syracuse on the brink of back-to-back losses.The Orange stayed alive with a dominant fourth set. They raced out to a 18-11 lead, as Ella Saada’s two key kills pushed the lead to seven. A kill from Shemanova, and another Clemson attacking error set up a match-deciding fifth set.AdvertisementThis is placeholder textThe final set was tight throughout. Syracuse took a 15-14 lead late, needing one more point to win the match.
