DREAM QUEENSLAND HOME I love the ocean and warm weather, it’s a huge part of my lifestyle.If I was to leave Australia one of my favourite areas to travel is Newport Beach in California. I would love a mega house on the beach there at Newport, perfect for summer parties and always plenty of night-life and action. CURRENT HOME The first home I bought was in Mooloolaba on the Sunshine Coast, it cost $550,000. I had moved to the Sunshine Coast to further my ironman career and compete for Mooloolaba Surf Life Saving Club. This was the best place for me to be for training, plus I loved all the local restaurants and cafes close by. My current house is in Broadbeach Waters on the Gold Coast. After seven years on the Sunshine Coast I moved to the Gold Coast to compete for Kurrawa Surf Life Saving Club. Broadbeach Waters was central to me for all my training facilities and I love the area with Pacific Fair, Star Casino and plenty of great restaurants all close by.

Cricket News Adaptability on tough wickets key for Australia success in India: Usman Khawaja

first_imgUsman Khawaja has played in India during the IPL and World T20 in 2016.Australia has not won a series in India since 2009.Australia has not won a bilateral ODI series since 2017. “I played in that T20 (World Cup) and the wickets were really nice. I found there was probably one wicket that spun a fair bit in Dharamsala, the other ones in Mohali (twice) and Bangalore were pretty good batting surfaces,” Khawaja said.Despite the absence of Steve Smith and David Warner, Khawaja believes there are good players in the side who can contribute at vital times. “There’s a lot of good players in this team, which is awesome. It’s good to have options. A lot of guys that are in this team are quite flexible on where they can play so whatever happens moving forward I think everyone will do quite well in whatever role they have,” Khawaja said.Australia’s series against India begins on February 24 in Vizag with a Twenty20 International followed by another T20I in Bangalore on February 27. The series will end with five ODIs and this will be India’s last bilateral assignment before the IPL and the World Cup. highlights New Delhi: Australia have not won a series in India since 2009. The team has lost two consecutive bilateral series, including their first-ever bilateral ODI series loss at home when they lost 1-2. Heading into the contest, Australia face an uphill task against an Indian side who have conquered Australia and New Zealand. Virat Kohli is back and the Indian team are building momentum ahead of the ICC Cricket World Cup 2019 which will be held in England in May. The Australian cricket team’s ODI fortunes are also on the wane, having not won a bilateral ODI series since 2017 against Pakistan but Usman Khawaja believes the team can turn around their fortunes in the upcoming contest against India.“You just have to adapt to whatever you get here. As the Australian cricket team, a lot of guys have had some really good performances in India in the past, so I think we can draw from that,” Khawaja told Cricket Australia’s official website.Khawaja said the nature of the pitches in India are good for batting but they will have to encounter spinning conditions, a factor that has hurt Australia tremendously in the recent past. The left-hander has had experience playing in India, having featured in a couple of Indian Premier League games for Rising Pune Supergiant in the IPL and in the World T20.

AFCON Qualifier: Senegal Tackle Struggling Sudan

first_imgSenegal captain Cheikhou Kouyate has stressed the importance of securing a victory against the Falcons of Jediane.“We will not hide – we will play a difficult game. It’s up to us to please our fans because we come a long way with them,” Kouyate said.“After elimination in the first round of the (FIFA 2018) World Cup, we want to start on a new foundation. But we will not succeed by talking.“We must work. The Senegalese (people) are frustrated with our performance which we have displayed. Now we want to make a difference. It starts with a victory on Saturday.”Aliou Cisse’s side will look to Liverpool FC forward Sadio Mane, who has the ability to inspire Senegal to victory against a struggling Sudan side.Meanwhile, Sudan remain winless in Group A having lost 1-0 to Equatorial Guinea away in their previous game last month.The defeat left the East African side placed fourth in the group standings without a single point from two games. They are three points behind third-placed Equatorial Guinea.Sudan head coach Zdravko Logarusic has insisted that his side will play without pressure against a much-fancied Senegal side.“It’s football, anything is possible, but we know that Sudan’s chances are minimal. We are aware that Senegal are the favourites, but we will do our best to honour ourselves,” Logarusic said.“We are here to enjoy without any pressure. It’s a chance for my players to play against such a big team like Senegal. My players will have fun.“We will fight to represent Sudan with dignity. Now, if the results arefavourable to us, we will be much happier – all of our players are locals, we have no foreign-based players.”The Falcons of Jediane will look to their inspirational captain Muhannad El Tahir, who netted against Madagascar in the 2019 AFCON qualifier last year.The return leg between Senegal and Sudan will be played at the Khartoum Stadium in Khartoum next week Tuesday.Share this:FacebookRedditTwitterPrintPinterestEmailWhatsAppSkypeLinkedInTumblrPocketTelegram Senegal will take on Sudan in the 2019 Africa Cup of Nations (AFCON) qualification Group A match at the Stade Léopold Sédar Senghor in Dakar today.The Lions of Teranga extended their winless run to three games in all competitions when they surprisingly drew 2-2 with Madagascar away in their previous Group A match last month.The draw left the West African giants placed at the top of the group standings with four points from two games.

Professor Glass delivers last lecture

first_imgProfessor Wayne Glass said goodbye to 10 years of teaching international relations on Monday in The Forum with a lecture called “Looking Back to the Future,” highlighting important lessons from his past as well as advice for students in the present and future.“I’ve sort of formulated a series of rules,” Glass said. “I really do think that some of the things I say, I hope you’ll take them with you.”Retiring · Wayne Glass, a professor of international relations, delivered his last lecture at the Ronald Tutor Campus Center on Monday. – Ani Kolangian | Daily TrojanGlass came to USC in 2002, ending an extensive civil service career in Washington, D.C. that saw him holding positions with the State Department, Congressional Budget Office and as senior defense policy advisor to Senator Jeff Bingaman.Despite his brief tenure, Glass quickly became a legend among students, making his mark as more than just another professor, said Chris Yon, a senior majoring in international relations (global business).“He is the most influential professor I have ever known,” Yon said. “He is a true motivator. He really knows how to reach out to students.”Glass’ first piece of advice was to “never pass up an opportunity.” He shared stories of how he came to learn this from getting a scholarship to Princeton University to getting his first job at the Pentagon to meeting his wife, and told students to apply this advice to their own education.“USC is a special time and place in your life,” Glass said. “Don’t miss any opportunities. Discover what a great place USC is and take opportunities to see the world.”Glass created a summer program that takes a delegation of students to Washington, D.C. to research nuclear security and meet with experts and officials to get experience in the field. Glass said he still plans to facilitate the program for as long as possible despite his retirement from the school.Clara Purk, a sophomore majoring in international relations, said she met Glass last summer through the Washington, D.C. program. She said part of the experience is spending a few weeks with Glass himself.“He’s so comfortable and amazingly fun to be around,” Purk said. “He also just provides a lot of valuable insight into being in D.C. It’s one of the most unique experiences. He’s so positive and so giving.”Glass also advised students to set and achieve high standards and acquire as much knowledge as possible but to also have a sense of humor in their work. He cited an experience with the Pentagon, when he gave a deputy secretary a speech titled “The Five Pint Program for Improving Defense Acquisition” instead of “The Five Point Program.”“I saw the ‘Five Pint Program,’ and I thought to myself, ‘Now, I can fix it, but I don’t think the deputy secretary gets a good laugh, so I’m going to let it run and see what happens,’” Glass said. “The draft of the speech went up to the deputy secretary of defense and came back with corrections. One of them was to circle the pint and write, ‘Make mine Jack Daniels.’”Looking to the future, Glass told students to aim for success, but it is more important to aim for happiness.“Go to the beach and throw the crystal ball Frisbee that you won in one of my classes,” Glass said, referring to a simulation he conducts in class that allows students to predict who will win upcoming sporting events.“Everyone gets to guess scores for sports. When you guess the score right, you get a prize. I won a calendar,” said Hanjun Chung, a junior majoring in international relations (global business). “The whole point was like in foreign policy, nothing is certain. You have to make those choices and try to guess based on the stats and history. [Glass] is really insightful about it.”Glass cited networking as a major factor for much of his success in Washington, D.C., and said he utilizes Facebook to keep in touch with former students and help them make professional connections with other students. He encouraged current students to stay connected with him.“I love postcards,” he said. “So I want you to stay in touch with me and send me postcards from the most obscure places you can find.”last_img read more

Stone Cold Steve Austin makes a big statement about his match against The Rock at Wrestlemania X-SEVEN

first_img FOLLOW US It was a time when John Cena was not around, an era when Kane and The Undertaker were striking fear in the minds of their opponents and the curious fans. It was also an era where Triple H was making one and all angry by playing the role of a heel to perfection. In case if you have been watching professional wrestling for a long time, then you will know that the era which is being discussed is none other than the ‘Attitude Era’ which is arguably the best era of the industry and is also known as its ‘Golden Age’. Now, even the Attitude Era had two of the finest superstars in the history of sports entertainment. They were The Rock and Stone Cold Steve Austin. The duo has given the fans so many memorable moments be it in the ring or backstage and one of those moments include their famous match at Wrestlemania X-SEVEN back in 2001.Stone Cold opens up about his match against The Rock at Wrestlemania 17The two megastars had clashed at the grandest stage of them all in 2001 where The Rock had defended his World Wrestling Federation (WWF) Championship against Austin which he went on to lose. This was their second match at Wrestlemania. Their first interaction happened at Wrestlemania XV which the ‘Texas Rattlesnake’ had won as well. However, the difference between these two matches is that Steve was an already established superstar in 1999 while the ‘Most Electrifying Man On the Planet’ was still an emerging talent. READ: As King Of The Ring Tournament Makes Its Comeback, Here Are The Five Instances Where It Took The Superstars To Greatness LIVE TV Written By WATCH US LIVE Nonetheless, after suffering two losses against his old foe at the wrestling industry’s showpiece event, ‘The Brahma Bull’ would get his revenge on Steve a couple of years later at Wrestlemania XIX which was also Austin’s final in-ring appearance.  READ: Independence Day Wishes Come In For India From The WWE; John Cena, Roman Reigns & Seth Rollins join In First Published: 16th August, 2019 21:49 ISTcenter_img Last Updated: 16th August, 2019 23:57 IST Stone Cold Steve Austin Makes A Big Statement About His Match Against The Rock At Wrestlemania X-SEVEN It was a time when John Cena was not around, an era when Kane and The Undertaker were striking fear in the minds of their opponents and the curious fans. COMMENT Karthik Nair SUBSCRIBE TO US Another important thing about their build-up to the 17th edition of Wrestlemania is that Austin was a heel while The Rock was a hero. So was the pro-wrestler-turned-actor convinced with this storyline? The answer is ‘Yes’ as Stone Cold himself has cleared the air on a talk show. The former wrestler said that Rock was cool with the storyline and at the same time also shared a mutual admiration for his fierce rival by saying that the Texas Rattlesnake brought out the best in The Rock and even ‘The People’s Champion’ always brought out the best in Austin. last_img read more
