Wage lag sparks Brisbane housing affordability fear

first_imgBrisbane has seen its affordability score deteriorate as wage growth failed to keep up with housing price growth late last year.BRISBANE has seen its housing affordability score deteriorate as wages growth failed to keep up with dwelling price increases late last year.Below national average wage growth in Queensland has sparked housing affordability fears as the average Brisbane mortgage repayment pushed past the $2,400 mark in the December quarter, according to the latest HIA Affordability Index.The report, out Tuesday, saw Brisbane’s affordability score worsen 2.9 per cent in the December quarter to 85.3, while Queensland’s result was slightly better at 88.4. Anything under 100 meant more than 30 per cent of average wages went towards mortgage repayments, according to HIA senior economist Shane Garrett.“Queensland’s housing affordability has benefited from the two interest rate reductions in 2016. However, annual earnings growth in Queensland (1.2 per cent) is slower than the nationally average (2.2 per cent) and this is impeding affordability improvements in the state’s housing market.”The average Brisbane mortgage repayment went to $2,409 in the December quarter despite historic low interest rates. It was $2,333 in the September quarter.In the rest of state repayments averaged $2.057, from $1,986 in the three months to September.More from newsMould, age, not enough to stop 17 bidders fighting for this home3 hours agoBuyers ‘crazy’ not to take govt freebies, says 28-yr-old investor9 hours agoMr Garrett said affordability conditions in Queensland were adversely affected by the 3.4 per cent growth in the median dwelling price in Brisbane and the 3.8 per cent median price growth in regional Queensland.

Lampard justifies confrontation with Klopp but regrets language used

first_imgChelsea manager Frank Lampard said on Friday that he should have reined himself in when arguing with Liverpool manager Juergen Klopp on the touchline.But he insisted he has no regrets over standing up for his team during their English Premier League defeat at Anfield on Wednesday. Visuals showed a visibly-agitated Lampard gesturing and yelling at Klopp and the Liverpool dugout when the home side won a free-kick during the 5-3 victory.Lampard said he had no issues with Klopp, but was unhappy with the reactions from certain members on the Liverpool bench.“In terms of the language I used, I do regret that. These things get replayed a lot. I’ve got two young daughters on social media,” Lampard told reporters ahead of Sunday’s match against Wolverhampton Wanderers.“In terms of regretting having the passion to defend my team, no. I could have maybe handled it slightly differently.“Some of the reports were I was upset with the celebrations — far from it. “They can celebrate every goal… I’d have had a beer with Juergen Klopp after the game but there were things on the bench – not from Klopp – that I felt crossed a line.“I regret the language, but we’ll move on.”Chelsea go into the final day of the season needing a win or a draw to guarantee a top four finish.A loss may see the London side miss out on UEFA Champions League qualification if Leicester City win or draw their match against Manchester United.Wolves started their season last July with Europa League qualifiers. Lampard said Nuno Espirito Santo has done an “incredible job” to ensure they remain competitive in spite of the workload of playing nearly 60 matches this season.“The manager has a great sense of humility and work ethic. That’s why it will be such a hard game,” Lampard said.“Credit to how they are managed. They have a lot of talent, threats… and an identity with a unique way of making it difficult. It’s a great story, full respect for the year they’ve had.”Reuters/NAN.RelatedPosts Lampard: I still have confidence in Tomori Ighalo: My best moment as ‘Red Devil’ Mane double eases Liverpool to win over 10-man Chelsea Tags: ChelseaEuropa LeagueFrank LampardJurgen KloppLiverpoolNuno Espirito Santolast_img read more

USA Beats Canada on Penalties to Win Women’s Ice Hockey Gold

first_imgWINTER OLYMPICSThe United States Thursday defeated Canada 3-2 in a sudden-death shootout to win Winter Olympics gold in the women’s ice hockey for the first time in 20 years.The scores were level at 2-2 after five penalty shots each, but USA’s Jocelyne Lamoureux-Davidson scored past Shannon Szabados before Maddie Rooney saved from Canada’s Meghan Agosta. Canada won gold at the previous four Olympics, including victories over USA in the 2002, 2010 and 2014 finals.The game had ended 2-2 after overtime.Hillary Knight opened the scoring for USA but Haley Irwin and Marie-Philip Poulin put Canada ahead before Monique Lamoureux-Morando took the match into overtime in Pyeongchang.USA beat Canada in the first women’s ice hockey Winter Olympic final in 1998.Lamoureux-Davidson said she had repeatedly practised the move in which she feinted to the left before taking the puck round Szabados to the right to score the winning penalty-shot.“I’ve done that thousands of times around tyres just set out on open ice,” she said. “It’s called ‘Oops, I did it again’ and I’m just thrilled beyond words.“I’ve butchered it a thousand times, ran into tyres, tripped over tyres just working on my hands. I’m just glad it worked out this time.“This victory is special and it’s going to give us an even bigger platform to make a bigger difference.”Twin sister Lamoureux-Morando added: “It’s a move that our coach Peter Elander worked on with us over the last four years, not just on the goalie, but against defenders.“We’ve screwed it up plenty of times, but she pulled the perfect time to pull it off.”Share this:FacebookRedditTwitterPrintPinterestEmailWhatsAppSkypeLinkedInTumblrPocketTelegramlast_img read more

Boston Bruins’ extensions for Charlie Coyle, Chris Wagner show faith in forward depth

first_imgCoyle, 27, signed a six-year contract extension through the 2025-26 season with an annual NHL cap hit of $5.25 million — a $2.05 million pay increase that recognizes his quality play at center behind Bergeron and David Krejci along with his ability to move up and down the lineup with ease.A Weymouth, Mass., native (they call him ‘the Mayor of Weymouth’ in Boston), Coyle excelled playing for his childhood favorite Bruins after he was acquired from the Minnesota Wild. He scored 16 points in 24 games during last spring’s playoff run.”They’re so ingrained in the community of Boston…They understand the pressures of playing with the Bruins and they’re really good teammates. For us it was a really good fit.”🎥After inking Charlie Coyle and Chris Wagner to new deals, Don Sweeney addressed the media in Ottawa: pic.twitter.com/ulgpn7dayB— Boston Bruins (@NHLBruins) November 27, 2019Wagner inked a three-year contract that keeps him in Boston through the 2022-23 season with an annual cap hit of $1.35 million — on par with what the team pays other bottom-six forwards like Sean Kuraly ($1.275 million cap hit) or Joakim Nordstrom ($1 million).The 28-year-old grew up in Walpole, Mass., and goes way back with Coyle — the two even played together as high schoolers in a local junior league. ‘The Mayor of Walpole’ endeared himself to Bruins fans in 2018-19 when he produced a career-high 12 goals and 29 points and excelled on the team’s penalty kill.Depth scoring has proven hard to come by for GM Don Sweeney and head coach Bruce Cassidy in recent seasons. With a nearly unstoppable first line, a second-round playoff exit came in 2017-18 when its stars found themselves suffocated by an all-around elite Tampa Bay Lightning team.🎥@chriswags23 on his excitement for the extension and how special it is to sign on the same day as Charlie Coyle: “Saw a tweet of our picture together for the South Shore Kings. Pretty much almost 10 years later now, can’t make that stuff up.” pic.twitter.com/uKOvbmenLU— Boston Bruins (@NHLBruins) November 27, 2019Enter Wagner and, later, Coyle last season; nine different Bruins scored double-digit point totals in the playoffs, with Coyle standing out whether he centered an effective third line or filling in at right wing in a pinch. This season, Coyle has picked up where he left off (14 points in 24 games) and Wagner remains on pace to match last year’s totals with five points in 23 games. The Boston Bruins made a show of faith in a depth approach at the forward position when the team announced it had signed Charlie Coyle and Chris Wagner to multi-year contract extensions that will keep a pair of local kids in black and gold for years to come.Both players are relative newcomers to the Bruins organization, but they have quickly grown into fan favorites by effectively providing secondary scoring and high-quality puck possession behind the likes of Patrice Bergeron, Brad Marchand and David Pastrnak. Now, the two players who would have been unrestricted free agents in 2020 are getting paid. The Bruins appreciate the versatility Coyle brings to his game and will now retain an effective center through his prime while centers-of-the-future Jack Studnicka, Jakub Lauko and John Beecher continue to develop. Wagner, similarly, earned his new contract with career-high scoring totals and physical play (his 247 hits in 2018-19 ranked 11th among all NHL players).These two new contracts do not absolutely guarantee Boston’s continued success entering a new decade; Sweeney still has tough decisions ahead (and even less money to play with now) as UFA-to-be Torey Krug and team captain Zdeno Chara remain unsigned beyond this season. According to CapFriendly, the Bruins have $16.289 million in cap space for the 2020-21.While some uncertainty on the blue line remains, Coyle and Wagner’s extensions are a pledge to stick with what’s working at forward.last_img read more

TV blackout

first_imgSpanish women’s football is going through its most turbulent season. Of the hard negotiations for the first agreement in this category, whose agreement came in December with a heading that is expected, the television conflict, which directly interferes with the delay in signing this document. The situation is the least confusing. On December 20, unions and employers raised a world historical pre-agreement, which set from wages to maternity or work disability protocols. But its official signature, agreed for January 15 and subject to the economic agreement between the Royal Spanish Football Federation (RFEF) and the Association of Women’s Soccer Clubs (ACFF), is expected. The Causes They walk on another of the fronts that maintain the controversial day after day in the First Iberdrola: television rights. As it happened at the beginning of this century in the men’s category, there is no audiovisual regulation that encompasses all clubs. Everything revolves around a war of interests, among which many point to Real Madrid and Barça. Both clubs, with their own televisions, are key to understanding this audiovisual block and, therefore, the agreement. And if there is no agreement in this area, there is no economic consensus and the agreement cannot see the light, since the teams cannot ensure compliance. As indicated to AS various sources, the two clubs want to broadcast their matches through their channels, without financial consideration for the visiting team, and even broadcast their meetings away from home based on the simulcast (give a match on two platforms at the same time), without exclusivity. A fact that has upset what was agreed between Mediapro, the RFEF and the ACFF, which agreed to broadcast two games on GOL TV, the rest to be determined.The problem of all this was manifested with the non-retransmission of Atleti-Barça, the most important match in Primera. María Teixidor, secretary of the Barça club, blamed Mediapro for it, ensuring that from Barça they did not oppose the issuance of the match, but Your consent was not in writing, as requested, since the culé entity accepts its field right (retransmit the duels at home), the principle by which it issued the Classic’s outing without the Atleti accepting it. A conflict that denotes the lack of specific regulation for retransmissions of women’s football and in which a consensus is urgent. For now, the most affected are still the players. They have no agreement or visibility …last_img read more

The four unknowns that will condition Valencia 20-21

first_imgCillessenIn goal the doubt is Cillessen. Jaume will continue to be one of the goalkeepers but the other position is not certain for the Dutch goalkeeper. On the one hand, Cillessen has a very high payroll that would be difficult to pay if there is no Europe. Valencia is currently out of Europe and the League final is not assured. Further, not convinced this year and in Mestalla offices plan to transfer and sign another goalkeeper. In an unpredictable market like the next one, it will not be easy. With the end of the 2019-20 season on the air, in Valencia offices they already think in making the template for the next campaign. And there four doubts arise, one per line, which condition the making of it. From there it will be necessary to retouch some positions. But how they are solved those four unknowns The bulk of the template for the next course will depend. GarayIn defence, the renewal of Garay continues without taking place. It was overwhelmed before Mateu Alemany left, but everything stopped after he left. Later, the club leaked that it was very close but not signed. And even when injured, Valencia slipped that it kept its renovation proposal. Three months later it has not been carried out and is far from occurring. If it does not arrive that renewal, the Valencia must take control of a center with gallons. With Paulista as consolidated central defender, Valencia will need another ready-made central defender and with immediate return to take ownership in the middle of the rear. Ferran TorresThe crux of the matter. Try renew you or get one good slice For a footballer who ends his contract in 2021 and in January can he negotiate with any club? What Valencia intends right now is to convince him that sign a long contract and stay as a franchise player. It is the option A and right now you don’t think about anything else. But if the theme is castled, another possibility is that Peter Lim change strategy and be forced to accept a good amount of money, this summer, by one of the pearls of europe. In that sense, the composition of the staff would have to change. An imbalance would be needed (Silva is an exciting possibility), not necessarily on the right wing because there Carlos Soler is already playing but a footballer who exceeds lines as is the case of Ferran. RodrigoPeter Lim continue with the idea of sell Rodrigo. At 29, the owner of Valencia has run out of opportunities to get a return on the investment he made in his day (30 million) when he bought it from Benfica. As he last summer (Atlético) like in January (Barcelona) the Hispanic-Brazilian was close to leave Mestalla. However, neither of the two interested parties reached the amount requested by the Singaporean, 60 million. ANDThe case is that in the next market, whenever, Rodrigo will be there again. Although the peculiarity of it, after the Covid-19 crisis, could make Lim reformulate his requests.last_img read more
