Picture: realestate.com.au.Kim and Jose Guerreiro would love to sell their Morningside home for Christmas — so much so that if it doesn’t, they’re prepared to take it off the market, subdivide the block and build a new house next door.The beautiful home on more than 1000 sqm at 37 Carramar Street has six bedrooms and six bathrooms over three levels with views to Bulimba, Teneriffe and Brisbane’s CBD. This home at 23 Mabel St, Oxley, is for sale.

FOREIGNERS BUY 1 IN 4 NEW HOMES The pool and backyard at 37 Carramar St, Morningside. Picture supplied.Marketing agent Nick Preston of The Nick Team said the property had originally been listed for sale in the middle of the year and then again in October.He said the vendors were open to offers in the high $2 million range.“If you took it and put it in Hawthorne or Bulimba, you’d be looking at $4, $4.5 million,” Mr Preston said.“It’s in a little pocket of Morningside nestled next to Hawthorne, so for someone looking for something unique but still within walking distance to amenities, you couldn’t really replicate it for a block and house that size at that price point.” This home at 37 Carramar St, Morningside, is for sale. Picture supplied.The couple has lived in the big family home for 17 years and raised their children there, but are now empty-nesters looking to downsize.“We like living in the street and really like our neighbours,” Mrs Guerreiro said.“It would be such a shame to subdivide the block because it will be a different product then and won’t have the big yard and garden.”
Gamesys maintains UK growth as Euro regulatory headwinds stall performance August 11, 2020 StumbleUpon Submit Related Articles Share Share Gamesys halts UK advertising during lockdown April 23, 2020 Publishing its Q3 2017 trading update (period ending 30 September), London-listed online gambling group Jackpotjoy Group Plc has detailed robust growth across its brand portfolio, with the operator confident of achieving its full-year corporate expectations.The strong revenue momentum recorded across its principal brands of; Jackpotjoy (up 12%) and Vera&John (up 28%), would see the company declare period group revenues of £75 million (Q3 2016: £66 million).Reporting stronger group performance KPIs, with Jackpotjoy seeing a 13% uplift in active wager customers during the period of +250,000, the company would declare a period adjusted EBITDA of £26.7 million up 4% on corresponding 2016’s £25 million.Closing Q3 2017 trading, Jackpotjoy narrows its group net losses to £7.7 million (Q3 2016: £18.6 million) as the company enters a crucial end of year period in which it will ramp up marketing spend across its portfolio.During Q3 2017, Jackpotjoy governance announced that Andy McIver would step down as leader of the company, with former Gala Coral MD Simon Wykes taking on the newly created role of Jackpotjoy Group Managing Director. Neil Goulden – Jackpotjoy PlcWykes will share leadership of the London-listed gambling group, alongside Neil Goulden acting as Executive Chairman. Goulden commented on Q3 2017 trading“The third quarter has seen a continuation in the strong underlying momentum that we saw during the first six months of 2017, with gaming revenue up 14% and Adjusted EBITDA up 4%. There continues to be solid customer growth across the Group, with our Vera&John business segment performing particularly well, with constant currency revenue growth of 21% in the quarter.I am very proud of the new integrated advertising campaign for our Jackpotjoy brand, which launched in the UK in mid-September. Television personality, Paddy McGuinness, succeeded Barbara Windsor as the new brand ambassador and early signs indicate that the campaign is helping to reinforce our market leadership position in online bingo in the UK.Finally, in October, the Group announced that Andrew McIver will be stepping down from his role as Chief Executive Officer, having successfully overseen the listing on the London Stock Exchange earlier this year. In my new role as Executive Chairman, I will be responsible for leading the development and execution of long-term strategy, while Simon Wykes has joined us as Group Managing Director to provide additional operational expertise.” Enlarged Gamesys returns to UK growth eyeing FTSE250 spot March 17, 2020
Free agents Bryce Harper and Manny Machado remain unsigned through the first few days of spring training — a development that would’ve been shocking just a few years ago considering they are two of the game’s biggest superstars. But in 2019 hot stove news, such a thing is the new normal. San Diego the big offseason winner? It’s something that almost never happens. There’s still time to change that narrative. There’s much to gain with Harper or Machado. There is even more to lose. The pursuit continues, however, and the winners in these sweepstakes will obviously receive a significant bump in their offseason grades. RIVERA: Grading every MLB team’s offseason But it’s more than that for three of the teams that reportedly have been in the mix: the Padres, Phillies and White Sox. It’s the difference between winning and more losing. The Padres, Phillies and White Sox are among the five teams in MLB with five or more consecutive losing seasons. TEAMLOSING SEASONSMarlins9Padres8Phillies6White Sox6Reds5The Reds are showing signs of competing while the Marlins are still in full rebuild mode. That leaves the other three trying to break those skids. Which franchise needs one or both? Let’s make the case for the Padres. This is a chance for San Diego to beat bigger markets in Philadelphia and Chicago and show it can shell out for top free agents. In fact, it should be going all-in for one or both to re-establish some footing in the NL West. It’s been a long time. That explains the rumored aggressive pursuit of Machado and Harper, even if it’s clear a short-term deal is not enough. Other than the weather — seriously, who wouldn’t want to live in San Diego? — the franchise has work to do if it wants to sell itself as a contender. The Padres have not been the same since Matt Holliday touched home plate to give the Rockies the win in the 2007 NL wild-card game. San Diego has had only one winning season since, and Petco Park has a reputation as a pitcher-friendly park even if runs and home runs increased last season. MORE: 19 reasons why baseball will be great in 2019Still, the impact of adding Harper and/or Machado cannot be understated. Harper had 34 homers and 100 RBIs last season with Washington. Machado finished with 37 homers and 107 RBIs between Baltimore and Los Angeles. Adrian Gonzalez is the last Padres player to hit 40 homers — which he did with 99 RBIs in 2009. He finished with 31 homers and 101 RBIs the following season. Since then — or through the duration of the eight-season losing streak — San Diego has had seven different players lead the team in home runs.

Chase Headley is the only San Diego player to have a season with 30-plus homers and 100-plus RBIs in that stretch. Matt Kemp is the only other player to reach 100 RBIs in a single season, which he did in 2015. San Diego has been starved for that superstar-type player since Gonzalez left, and either Harper or Machado would fill that void and add pop to an offense that has ranked in the bottom third in MLB in runs scored every year since 2008. There already is optimism in San Diego, too. Myers and Hunter Renfroe are back, and veteran second baseman Ian Kinsler signed a two-year, $8 million contact in the offseason. The Padres have a strong farm system — considered by many to be the best in MLB — that features Fernando Tatis Jr., Francisco Mejia and Luis Urias. All three could be in the starting lineup this season. Add a bona fide superstar to that mix, and the Padres might be able to get into the mix in a division where they have finished no higher than third the past eight seasons. MORE: Crafting a roster from MLB’s remaining free agentsIf that doesn’t seem significant now, just wait until that streak of losing seasons hits double digits. At that point, there’s no telling how long it will last. Ask the Pirates, who were a punchline with 20 straight losing seasons from 1993 to 2012. The Padres’ longest skid is nine seasons, which lasted from 1969-77. A losing season this year would match that. A winning season, however, might be the start of something different — perhaps something special.
