The fate of a small number of very large resource projects could also change this moderate projection of growth,” the HIA report said.“The investment phase in apartments in Queensland has lagged behind other states and there are still a large number of units to be completed. With approvals for multi-unit residential building declining in recent months there is an indication that there is a pending contraction in this sector of the market once the current projects conclude.”HIA said Queensland’s fall in building activity by 10.2 per cent in the March quarter was “consistent with the decline in activity across the country”.“We anticipate that the number of commencements will continue receding from the elevated level posted in 2015/16, the level of commencements should remain healthy in the longer term context.”last_img read more

More cops sent to Alimodian, Bingawan for ECQ duties

first_imgAlimodian recorded 10 more cases of coronavirus disease 2019 (COVID-19) on July 15, which prompted authorities to extend further its ECQ.

Van Gaal: De Gea is different

first_img United begin their Premier League campaign at home to Tottenham on Saturday but De Gea has been left out of the squad because he has been unsettled by talk of a move to Real Madrid, according to Van Gaal. The United manager said on the eve of the first game of the season that he felt De Gea was incapable of focusing on the match in hand, which means 22-year-old Sam Johnstone looks set to make his debut against Tottenham at Old Trafford. Van Gaal admitted United have “problems” with De Gea, who has been unable to “manage his situation,” according to the Dutchman. The United boss claims it would be too much of a risk starting the 24-year-old against Spurs, so he looks set to turn to Johnstone – or new signing Sergio Romero – instead. “We’ve observed him in training sessions and matches and he’s not the David de Gea of last year,” Van Gaal said. “He tries and does (his) utmost best, but it’s a difficult situation. “Now we have to play our first match and I want players who can focus only on the match and he is not capable to do that. “He shall not play.” United have maintained all summer they will not sell De Gea to Real Madrid unless they get Sergio Ramos in return. That stance remains the same, despite Van Gaal’s latest terse words on the subject. “No, I don’t think so,” Van Gaal said when asked if Real Madrid had matched their valuation of De Gea. “We are asking money and they have to pay money. In recent years Manchester United have paid a lot of money on players and not received a lot for our players. “He’s the best goalkeeper we’ve had for the last three years, I believe,” Van Gaal said. “The last two years he was nominated by the fans as the best player at the club. Do you think the coach wants him to leave? I don’t think so. The player still has to manage this situation.” It is easy to see why United are so desperate to hold on to De Gea. The former Atletico Madrid goalkeeper played a huge part in United’s push for Champions League qualification and rightly earned his second successive player of the year award at the club’s annual awards in May. Van Gaal thinks the situation would not be so messy if the transfer window shut before the start of the season. He added: “I am the victim, the fellow players are the victims, the club is the victim. That’s why the transfer period has to change. “When we are at September 1 then there is a decision because then the transfer period is over. “Then we have to manage the new situation. It may be easier but I don’t know. We have to see and wait. I have to observe.” Van Gaal also spoke for the first time about Angel di Maria’s exit from Old Trafford. On Thursday Di Maria joined Paris St Germain for £44.3million, less than 12 months after signing for United for an English-record £59.7million fee. ”For us that’s a big loss,” Van Gaal said. ”I want more attackers with speed and creativity. Di Maria is one of those players so we have to look for that kind of player, but they have to have the talent to cope with the English rhythm and that’s difficult to find.” Explaining the events of the last few weeks when Di Maria failed to show up for United’s pre-season tour and then signed for PSG, Van Gaal said: “He left us very quickly (at the end of last season) because he had to go to the Copa America so I didn’t want to disturb him on his way to the final. “I text him only messages (about) how it was with him and then PSG… and then we – us and PSG – have to consider if it (a transfer) is possible. “When you don’t come on the tour on the day we agreed then you are showing you want to go to Paris St Germain.” Louis van Gaal claims David de Gea bears little resemblance to the goalkeeper who rescued so many points for Manchester United last season.

Hilary Beckles launches Cricket without a Cause in London

first_imgCRICKET without a Cause, a book by Professor Hilary Beckles, that looks at the reasons behind the downfall of West Indies cricket was launched at Kings College in London on Thursday.The launch was organised by the University of the West Indies Foundation with sponsorship by Jamaica National.There are also plans to have launches in Barbados and Jamaica next month.In Cricket without a Cause, published by Ian Randle Publishers, Beckles shows that only the Windies have been unable to field a Test team filled with its best players.The best available occupy the bottom of Test rankings. The best are lured by the bounty of franchise cricket as ‘cash before country’ became the new mantra.Test cricket, once the gold of the Windies brand, was devalued and diminished. The proud edifice to West Indian nationalism fell. But the rebuilding task has begun, Beckles argues. A new mentality in the academy is in the making. The return of the Windies is on the horizon.Hilary McD. Beckles is Professor of Economic History and Vice Chancellor of The University of the West Indies (UWI). He played youth cricket for Warwickshire County in England and while a student at Hull University, played for Hull City and Barnsley Town in the Yorkshire League.He is the founder and Director of the Centre for Cricket Research at The UWI and while serving as a director of the West Indies Cricket Board, designed and chaired its High Performance Cricket Academy. He has written several books on West Indian cricket, including a biography of Sir Everton Weekes and authored a play on the rise of Sir Gary Sobers.In 2017 he was inducted into the USA Cricket Hall of Fame. He lectures extensively on cricket history and culture. (Sportsmax.com)last_img read more
