This house at 36A Oxlade Drive, New Farm has sold at auction for $8m.A block acquired in a land swap with a friend 45 years ago has become the most valuable property for its size on the Brisbane River after it sold at auction on Saturday for $8 million.Every square metre of usable land at 36A Oxlade Drive, New Farm is worth as much as a bathroom renovation. Ray White New Farm principal Matt Lancashire. Picture: Annette DewThe New Farm property took out the preliminary highest sale of the day for the Ray White Group nationally. “COVID has actually done the opposite to what everyone thought,” Mr Lancashire said.“People don’t think they’re going to be travelling properly for the next three years and they want a nice house to live in. We’ve seen people significantly upgrading, not just doubling but in some cases tripling their asset value.“I’ve got more buyers in the $5 million-plus range than I’ve ever had in 15 years of selling real estate.” The property has direct river access.The four-bedroom deceased estate at New Farm had belonged to Brisbane Motor Auctions owner Peter Bettson, who acquired the 835sq m block (735sq m excluding the easement driveway) in a land swap for acreage on the Nerang River.“Dad had built a place on Bellview Crescent on the Nerang River where he had three acres,” Peter Bettson’s son, Jeff Bettson said.“That was the house he swapped for Oxlade Drive.“I can’t remember the guy’s name, we didn’t meet him but he was unwell and had to come down to get out of Brisbane.“I expect that dad’s house appreciated a little more than the other guy’s did.” The entrance to 36A Oxlade Drive, New FarmPeter Bettson passed away 18 months ago and his wife Beverley had been living in the home until she passed away in June.More from news02:37International architect Desmond Brooks selling luxury beach villa7 hours agoParks and wildlife the new lust-haves post coronavirus8 hours agoEleven bidders took the property to auction with an opening bid of $5 million and five bidders were active even after the property passed $6 million.At $7.5 million the auction was paused and the bid was negotiated to $8 million. The property was then announced on the market and sold unchallenged for that price.Mr Lancashire said the house had sold to a local New Farm buyer who was looking to land bank the property. The property is between New Farm Park and the Merthyr Bowls Club.“No it wasn’t a Seymour,” Mr Lancashire said, referring to the prolific property development family, led by Kevin Seymour, who has been snapping up riverside blocks and shaping Brisbane’s skyline for more than five decades.”Mr Bettson said he was happy his parents’ home, which is located between New Farm Park and the Merthyr Bowls Club, was not being earmarked for development. The kitchen.“We were concerned about who would buy it,” Mr Bettson said.“You need units in certain places, as long as it’s all balanced development. New Farm has a unique character and a very strong village feel. There are units around it, but there are places where you don’t need units and not many properties are coming on the market in this area.” MORE PROPERTY STORIEScenter_img Conditions now best ever for first-home buyers FOLLOW US ON FACEBOOKlast_img read more

Damen Dredge Pump Put to Use in South Africa

first_imgOn the Western coast of South Africa, high grade heavy mineral sediment layers are found on the seashores.Located just below a layer of fairly standard quartz sand, this heavy mineral sand can be mined. The material, which is also called HMS, has a relatively high specific gravity of 2.8T.m3 in situ.Until recently, the mining operations in the surf zone were done conventionally using excavators and trucks. Yet they have to be relocated every time the tide comes in.The DOP250 however can mine continuously when attached to an amphibious excavator. The DOP250 mines heavy mineral sand at a max dredging depth of 10 m. The heavy sand mixture is pumped in a concentration up to 25% over a distance of 250 m over a cliff of 15 m in height.On shore the processing plant separates the valuable minerals from the quartz sand and stones.last_img read more

UFC: Khabib Nurmagomedov might not fight again after facing Tony Ferguson at UFC 249

first_img Lightweight champion Khabib Nurmagomedov is not sure whether he will fight again after going against Tony Ferguson at the main event of UFC 249. The Dagestani Eagle has been hinting at his retirement for quite some time now. It seems that Khabib Nurmagomedov is going to hang up his gloves after fighting ‘El Cucuy’ on April 18, 2020 in New York. A few days back, the UFC champion even advised Cristiano Ronaldo to retire from football at the right time. He feels that people are going to take over (him and Ronaldo) them if they don’t leave at the right time.

Fantasy Football Stock Watch: Tevin Coleman, Nelson Agholor among buy-low, sell-high candidates for Week 12

first_imgMORE: Dominate your league with Fantasy Alarm’s season-long toolsLISTEN TO THE SN FANTASY WEEK 12 PREVIEW PODCAST BELOWFantasy Football Trade Candidates: Stock upDeebo Samuel, WR SF: Samuel has now produced back-to-back weeks of 19 or more fantasy points. He has at least eight fantasy points in four straight games, and he has averaged 15.6 fantasy points per game in that span. What you really love about these past two games in particular is that he has racked up 11 and 10 targets, respectively, while hauling in eight receptions in both. He also crossed the 100-yard mark in both games, as well. I loved this rookie coming into the season and it’s nice to see him producing, but there are a few things to keep in mind before getting too excited. The 49ers have been without George Kittle (knee) and either without or with a compromised Emmanuel Sanders (ribs) in each of the past two games. They faced two poor secondaries in each of those games, as well, in the Seahawks and Cardinals. He is very unlikely to continue to produce at this rate moving forward. That being said, he has formed a nice chemistry with Jimmy G and will likely be a solid fantasy asset moving forward, even if he isn’t as high-end as he has looked over the past two games.Ryan Griffin, TE NYJ: Griffin has really developed a great chemistry with Sam Darnold over the past few weeks, and with Chris Herndon done for the year, Griffin is starting to be a pretty strong fantasy asset. Over the past four games he has three double-digit fantasy point outings and has two games with more than 20 points. In that span, he has hauled in 16-of-18 targets and has at least targets in three of those games. He had his first 100-yard game of the season in the Jets’ 34-17 win over the Redskins in Week 11. This isn’t to say that he has moved into weekly starter territory, but he has shown enough that we can feel comfortable streaming him and/or giving him a look for GPPs for our DFS action. His next three matchups are against the Raiders, Bengals, and Dolphins, so he can be looked at as a back-end TE1 for that stretch of games.MORE WEEK 12:Waiver pickups | FAAB planner | Snap counts | Fantasy playoff SOSFantasy Football Trade Candidates: Stock downKyle Allen, QB CAR: The magic appears to have run out for Allen. He was a complete disaster this week against the Falcons, throwing 50 passes for 325 yards, zero touchdowns, and four interceptions. He now has nine interceptions over the past four games with just three touchdowns in that span. Yikes. Unsurprisingly, the Panthers have also fallen apart in that stretch, winning just one game. He hasn’t scored more than 16 fantasy points in any of the past four games, and he has been in single digits in two of them. He is going to have a tough time bouncing back in Week 12, too, as the Panthers head to New Orleans to take on the Saints. He can be cut loose in most formats at this point and streamers can find a better option.Nelson Agholor, WR PHI: Agholor was thrust into the spotlight as the Eagles’ No. 1 receiver this week with both Alshon Jeffery and DeSean Jackson out of action, but he disappointed (per usual). He just isn’t a good player, plain and simple. He drops way too many easy passes and struggles with contested ones, as well. He racked up nine targets but only managed to haul in four of them for a whopping 40 yards for an eight-point fantasy effort in PPR leagues. Sure, the matchup wasn’t great, but this was now his seventh straight game with fewer than 10 fantasy points despite three games in that span with at least seven targets. He does have a better matchup on tap in Week 12 against the Seahawks, but it’s tough to put much faith in him at this point.WEEK 12 DFS: FD Cash | FD GPP | DK Cash | Y! Cash | Y! GPPTevin Coleman, RB SF: Coleman had a fantastic run in Weeks 5-8, but he has done a complete 180 over the past three games. We did not expect him to continue elite production, but it’s a bit surprising to now see him not even putting up starter level production. He finished with 12 carries for 14 yards in the 49ers win this week. He also hauled in three passes for 48 yards to make it a 9.2-point day in PPR leagues. It was his second game under 10 points in the past three weeks, and he hasn’t reached 12 points in any of those games. With Matt Breida (ankle) out this week, it seemed like Coleman was set up to snap out of his funk, but that just wasn’t the case. He has a strong matchup in Week 12 against Green Bay, so fantasy owners will be hopeful for a breakout game. It is important to keep in mind that he has rough matchups against the Ravens and Saints after the Packers, though. He is trending downward and quick.O.J. Howard, TE TB: I warned everyone to not get too excited about Howard after his decent game against the Cardinals in what is the best matchup in the league for tight ends. While I wasn’t expecting much from him against the Saints, he was even worse than I expected. He dropped his lone target and managed to turn it into an interception by letting it bounce all around his body for a few seconds before a Saints player was able to pluck it out of the air. He was then benched. He had to sit and watch as Cameron Brate hauled in 10-of-14 targets for 73 yards in the Bucs loss. If for some reason you haven’t dropped Howard yet… what are you waiting for? He is the biggest bust of the year at the position, and second place isn’t remotely close. Go ahead and get him off your team.MORE: Dominate your league with Fantasy Alarm’s season-long tools Hello and happy Stock Watch day. This week is filled with plenty of deeper names to potentially acquire or deal if your fantasy football league’s trade deadline hasn’t passed yet. There are no overly big names in terms of fantasy value in the stock down section — just a bunch of guys who are right on the start ’em, sit ’em border heading into Week 12 and could continue to be that way through the fantasy playoffs.So, let’s dive in to this week’s stock watch. Feel free to shoot me feedback on Twitter @JustinVreeland, and remember to check out Fantasy Alarm for more great analysis like this all season long! Fantasy Football Stock WatchBo Scarbrough, RB DET: Scarbrough was the starting running back for the Lions out of nowhere after being promoted from the practice squad the day before the game. He rushed 14 times for 55 yards and a touchdown in the Lions’ 35-27 loss to the Cowboys. He proved to be the physical rusher that the Lions offense had been lacking, and he immediately becomes an interesting player for standard leagues. Unfortunately standard leagues are where the interest ends, as he did not catch a single pass, and even with the strong game he finished with just 11.5 points in PPR formats. That being said, he does have a great matchup with the Redskins on tap this week, and it wouldn’t be shocking to see him find the end zone for a second straight week.Patrick Laird, RB MIA: Laird had just one carry for seven yards in the Dolphins’ loss to the Bills, but he made his money in the passing attack with six receptions for 51 yards on six targets. That was good enough for 11.8 PPR fantasy points, which was very similar to the number that Kalen Ballage scored. I’ve been saying this for weeks now, but Ballage is the worst running back in football. He had nine carries for nine yards and managed just eight yards on five receptions. This dude is terrible. I don’t even know how he’s still on the team, let alone starting. I digress. It appears that Laird has worked his way into a role, and Miami would be smart to give him more touches and to stop shooting themselves in the foot by giving the ball to Ballage. PPR leaguers can give Laird a look.Jeff Driskel, QB DET: Two weeks of Driskel, two weeks of people using the defense against him in DFS and failing. However, for me, it’s been two weeks of using Driskel in DFS and making money. Driskel is nowhere near as bad as people seem to think he is, and he is actually looking like a solid quarterback to use for seasonal fantasy purposes. His first start came against a decent Bears defense, and he managed to rack up 19 fantasy points. His second start came against a very solid Dallas defense, and he managed to score 27.5 fantasy points. He has two weeks as a starting quarterback, two weeks as a top-four finisher at the position. He has a nice blend of running and passing which has allowed him to score points in a variety of ways, as evidenced by his 13 carries for 88 rushing yards and a touchdown through two games. Now, in Week 12, he will get to face a Redskins defense that hasn’t been able to stop anyone. He will rank as a top-10 fantasy option at the position for me this week.last_img read more
