Brisbane’s home value index has knocked out growth in July at a time when all other capital cities are going backwards. Picture: iStockBRISBANE is the only Australian capital to come away from July with a rise in home values, with latest data showing every other major city has gone backwards.The month-to-date data, which will be updated tomorrow (Wednesday) found Brisbane’s index had just managed to keep its toes in positive territory (up 0.1 per cent over the month to July 30) at a time when other capitals were red-lining including Sydney (-0.6 per cent), Melbourne (-0.9 per cent), Adelaide (-0.1 per cent) and Perth (-0.8 per cent). CoreLogic research analyst Cameron Kusher told The Courier-Mail that the CoreLogic daily hedonic index was tracking 0.6 per cent lower across the combined capitals in July — with the weak reading dragged down by Sydney and Melbourne.“Brisbane may be the only major capital to record a lift in dwelling values over the month,” he said. The home that $5.6m can’t buy TV personality’s dream home up for rent Top 10 suburbs for upgraders “It’s been a pretty rapid slowdown happening in Sydney, Values are falling in Melbourne as well — probably not quite as rapid as in Sydney but after long period of growth it is slowing.”“It looks like Brisbane will be the only capital city where values will be higher over the month,” he said, much of which was attributed to the city “starting to see the impact of an immigration pick up”.Among the sales notched in July was 21 Firhill Street, Ashgrove — a two bedroom cottage — that sold for $768,000 yesterday (July 30), which was about $243,000 more than the owners paid five years ago — a jump of 46 per cent in price, according to CoreLogic records.

Now all the former world number one needs to do is avoid his ‘Friday curse’ to take another step towards a second European Tour title in four events and give himself a boost ahead of next week’s Open Championship . Sweden’s Kristoffer Broberg had established a new record of 65 at a windswept Royal Aberdeen after going out in the first group at 6:30am, but that lasted two hours as McIlroy carded eight birdies – including six in seven holes around the turn – and just one bogey. Press Association Not for the first time this season, Rory McIlroy started a tournament in brilliant fashion with a course-record 64 in the opening round of the Aberdeen Asset Management Scottish Open. The 25-year-old used the 20mph winds to his advantage in amazing fashion on the 13th, driving the green on the downhill 436-yard par four. But he was equally pleased by the controlled iron shots which went 50 yards less than usual after practice for links golf following his “lads holiday” in Ibiza paid off. McIlroy said: “Everything was pretty much on. I controlled my ball flight really well which is the key to me playing well in these conditions and on these courses. “I’ve been working the last 10 days on keeping the ball down, hitting easy shots and taking spin off it and I went out there today and really trusted what I practised.” McIlroy revealed he had also driven the 13th in Wednesday’s pro-am, although it probably still came as a shock to the group ahead who were still on the green – which included Ian Poulter. “I’m driving the ball really well and I feel if I can get driver in my hand and have an advantage on the field I should do it,” he added. “Going out this morning in these conditions I thought anything in the 60s would be a good score so to shoot something better than that is pleasing. “I told Poulter it was a 3-wood but it was a driver. He was on the green trying to flex his muscles.” It is the fourth time in 13 events McIlroy has shot 64 or better in an opening round this season, but the two-time major winner has won none of those tournaments. His first-round scoring average of just under 68 leads the PGA Tour but his second-round average is almost five shots worse. “I’ve got off to a lot of good starts and tended to fall away. Hopefully that won’t be the case this week,” McIlroy added. “It’s more mental than anything but I am really comfortable with my game at the minute. ” McIlroy famously said after the 2011 Open at Sandwich that there was no point in changing his game for one week a year, while 12 months ago he missed the cut at Muirfield and labelled his own play “brain dead” following an opening 79. “It’s chalk and cheese,” he added. “This time last year I was trying to get the ball under control and not really too confident with anything and this year is totally different. “I’m more confident than ever in my ability to hit the shots I need in this sort of golf. I’m going to make it my favourite style of golf for two weeks of the year!” The scoring overall was excellent in the conditions, with McIlroy leading by one from Broberg and Argentina’s Ricardo Gonzalez, with fellow Northern Irishman Michael Hoey another shot back on five under after covering the back nine in 29 with four birdies and an eagle. Gonzalez was somewhat hoarse after cheering on his country’s football team in their World Cup semi-final win over Holland but he added: “I think it’s one of the best rounds of this year and that’s why I’m very happy now. To make 65 on that wonderful course, with my son on the bag, that’s great. “I enjoyed the match and maybe this is the key to play well, to relax and enjoy the day. I would like Argentina to win the World Cup and also if I can win here it would be amazing. It’s my dream.” Defending champion Phil Mickelson finished four shots off the lead after a 68 which featured an eagle, two birdies and a solitary bogey caused by three putts on the 18th. read more
“That’s football. You aren’t going to play to the best of your ability in every game,” said Johnson. “Whether you play well or not, the most important thing is that you don’t go out of the cup. We’re still in the draw and we can still win the tie. “It was frustrating. Everyone wanted to win the game but the most important thing is that we’re in the hat for the semi-finals. “You’ve got to give Blackburn a lot of credit because they worked hard. They got men behind the ball. “Hopefully we’ll play better in the replay and get the win we want. “The fixture list isn’t too crowded for us now so having a replay isn’t a big problem. “We’ve got plenty of time on the training ground in between matches to work on things now. “We’re still confident we can go through. Hopefully we can pick up our perf ormance and go through in the replay.” Blackburn’s performance was not just a resilient one as for a long period in the first half they dominated the match despite having made seven changes but what did not help Liverpool was the state of the Anfield pitch, which is in desperate need of an overhaul. “It slowed us down a bit but we can’t make excuses. We just didn’t play to our best. That happens sometimes. They played well and made it tough,” added Johnson. “Without doubt it’s the worst it’s been during my time at Liverpool. It’s the same pitch for both sides. You have to watch your touch more because it bobbles so much and it’s harder for the likes of Philippe and Raheem (Sterling) to dribble with the ball. “It slows everything down because the bounce is so irregular. It’s different every time. “It takes a bit more concentration and it’s harder to play one touch football which is what you need to open these teams up from around the box.” Liverpool defender Glen Johnson has no idea where he will be next season but it appears increasingly likely he will move overseas as his representatives have already held exploratory talks with foreign clubs. He has long been linked with a move abroad – he has been free to talk to overseas clubs since January 1 – and the defender admits there have been discussions. Asked about his contract situation with Liverpool Johnson said: “No talks. At this point I have no idea (where I will be next season). I haven’t thought about it.” On his option to explore a move overseas he added: “There are talks. It would be great for the kids to go abroad but I am not thinking about yet as we have two months left here and I’ll think about it after that. “We will have to wait and see.” Ironically Johnson made his first start in 12 matches in Sunday’s goalless FA Cup quarter-final draw at home to mid-tabled SkyBet Championship Blackburn. The team’s performance was so alien to what fans have become accustomed to seeing since the turn of the year there were understandably some grumbles at Anfield but Johnson said it is inevitable players will be criticised when they fail to reach the high standards they have set themselves. Unbeaten in the Premier League since January 1 and playing football lauded as currently the best in the land has set a benchmark which is not always easy to achieve. Rovers stuck to their game plan of nullifying the threat of Philippe Coutinho and Adam Lallana, Liverpool’s two playmakers behind the striker, and were rewarded with a replay next month at Ewood Park – where they have already beaten Swansea and Stoke in the competition. The 30-year-old is out of contract in the summer and negotiations over a new deal stalled at the beginning of the season and have never got going again. In January manager Brendan Rodgers said he was hopeful a solution could be found to keep the England international but with Johnson having lost his first-team place in the 3-4-2-1 formation which has been so successful since the turn of the year that now looks less likely.

Published on December 2, 2014 at 9:49 pm Contact Jacob: email@example.com | @Jacob_Klinger_ ANN ARBOR, Mich. — In the first half, Michigan fired shot after shot over the Syracuse defense. But they were hurried, defended, fed by passes from the perimeter and ultimately, the Wolverines were throwing shot after shot off the rim.Syracuse was the same team it had been for much of the early part of the season. It generally controlled the paint, got nothing from the perimeter and had its best weapon, Rakeem Christmas, in foul trouble. Still, when the Orange players were winning when they jogged off at halftime.But when they came back on the Crisler Arena floor for the second half, they let themselves slip into a shootout. With Michigan guards splitting the Syracuse zone, SU had entered a game it couldn’t win. Soon the No. 17 Wolverines (6-1) were raining those same 3s over the Syracuse (5-2) zone, but into the hoop off kick outs and UM was on its way to beating the Orange 68-65 in front of 12,707.“Once they get to the middle, it’s broken,” SU guard Trevor Cooney said. “The zone is broken.”With 16:39 left in the game UM guard Spike Albrecht drove at Christmas and as the Orange forward stepped, Albrecht threw a behind-the-back pass to forward Ricky Doyle, who finished with a two-handed slam as Christmas slapped him on the arm.AdvertisementThis is placeholder textThe paint had belonged to Syracuse in the first half, even with Christmas in foul trouble. But as Michigan stole a foothold at the heart of the court, the Wolverines started to take over the game.“We let them get inside a couple times and they got some baskets under the basket that we shouldn’t let happen,” SU head coach Jim Boeheim said.With the zone broken open, there was only so much SU’s bigs could do to save the rest of the team. When they stepped to UM guards slashing to the basket, they left forwards open behind them for easy finishes.And even when Cooney heated up for his best performance of the season, shooting 4-of-7 from 3-point range in the second half, Syracuse could only stay in the game. It couldn’t take it back.Defensive stops were few and far between for the Orange. When they did happen, SU would cough up one of its 10 second-half turnovers on the other end. Syracuse could survive, but with Michigan taking the lane, the Orange could cover the corners or the blocks. Not both.“We let them get penetration down there and get some baskets inside because we were so concerned about their 3-point shooters,” Boeheim said.Forward Chris McCullough re-entered the game with 6:56 left with four fouls to his name and SU down 58-49. Locking up the paint and snaring defensive rebounds, he pushed Syracuse back into the game.It would wind down into a series of fouls and timeouts that Syracuse had a chance to come out of on top of. SU tied the game with just a minute remaining, but a game it had lost control of in the middle of the second half became a game it trailed in for good 26 seconds later.With 31 seconds left and the game tied, Albrecht caught the ball off a kick out at the top of the key. Cooney charged him, but as he turned to watch Michigan’s 16th 3-point attempt of the half take flight, he saw UM’s eighth triple of the frame fall through the net, giving Michigan a 66-63 lead, and one it wouldn’t relinquish.“I definitely think my guards are definitely better than them,” McCullough said. “(But) today I think they had it in the second half.” Comments Facebook Twitter Google+ read more
