In particular, ASIC has concerns about a herd of approximately 261 head of cattle abandoned by company management,” an ASIC statement said.“Keith Batt and Margaret Letizia, the individuals responsible for the creation and management of the companies, are now both personally bankrupt, disqualifying them from managing a corporation.”FOLLOW SOPHIE FOSTER ON FACEBOOKcenter_img Margaret and Keith Batt at the 2012 VIP launch of The Nant Whisky Cellar & Bar at Brisbane’s Emporium precinct in Fortitude Valley.Agent Tristan Rowland of Place Aspley said the 91-year-old home could have fetched almost five times as much had there not been major development restrictions over the site.“Had it not had heritage listing, it would have sold for up to $10m,” he told The Courier-Mail. “But the receiver was happy. It was a great outcome considering the nature of the property.”Just the day before the El Nido deal, a three bedroom Hamilton home with river views and demolition approval sold for $1.7m. Mrs Batt had made a last-ditch attempt to sell El Nido in December without success. The receiver sale comes one year after the Batts sold their Clayfield home for $200,000 less than they had paid 24 months earlier — a sale that occurred within months of Mr Batt declaring himself bankrupt in late 2015.Among Keith Batt and Nant assets that were recently sold off was the 27-ton Maxi Ragamuffin — winner of three Sydney-Hobart yacht races between 1979 and 1990 including when it was owned by one of Australia’s richest men John Kahlbetzer and racing under its original name Bumblebee IV. The maxi sold “for a song” mid last year.last_img read more

Transform the look of your room or your house with style

first_imgCarpet Court says two of the hottest interior trends for 2019 are the Moroccan and Botanical looks – both of which work beautifully in Australian interiors and are easy to recreate in your own home. Moroccan and botanical looks have hit the top of the list of this year’s hottest interior trends, according to Carpet Court.Carpet Court’s style ambassador Darren Palmer said both of the looks worked beautifully in Australian interiors and were easy to recreate in your own home.“The Moroccan look is exotic and luxurious,” Mr Palmer said.“Think bold brights, clashing patterns and earthy, rugged textures. With its bohemian edge, this look brings a sense of energy yet warmth to a space.“When you’re decorating a room, it’s always a good idea to start with the floor. It’s one of the largest expanses of space in a home and will set the tone for the rest of your furnishings.” Mr Palmer said the Moroccan look had warm, spicy undertones and an earthy feel, so seek out flooring in a warm neutral shade with plenty of texture, such as Carpet Court’s Dreamtime high-low loop-pile carpet or Antilles Twist cut-pile twist carpet. He said timber flooring worked equally well in a Moroccan scheme – again, opt for timber with warm undertones, such as Carpet Court’s Stockmans Ridge Premium Spotted Gum or Blackbutt. Another trend that translates well to Australian homes was the botanical look, Mr Palmer said. “We’re passionate about indoor-outdoor living in Australia, and this trend is all about bringing nature inside. The result is a fresh, relaxed look that’s easy to love,” he said.More from newsParks and wildlife the new lust-haves post coronavirus13 hours agoNoosa’s best beachfront penthouse is about to hit the market13 hours agoMr Palmer said the beauty of today’s flooring was the amount of options. “If you haven’t shopped for flooring in a while, you’ll be amazed at what’s available now – there really is something for every style, budget and home set-up,” he said.“With so many options, the first step is to consider how you’ll use the spaces.“Do you need something hard-wearing, easy to clean, ultra-luxurious, or able to cope with the demands of children and pets? Once you’ve narrowed down your requirements, it’s time for the fun part – choosing a flooring style that will completely transform the look of your room and home. Carpet Court says two of the hottest interior trends for 2019 are the Moroccan and Botanical looks. STYLE TIPS WITH DARREN PALMER TEXTURED APPEAL: To add texture to your interior, consider a chunky, felted loop-pile carpet in this season’s on-trend colours – charcoal, silvery-grey or sand. FAMILY FRIENDLY: If you have children or pets, a level loop-pile carpet in a mid-tone neutral with some flecks of colour will be the most hard-wearing and forgiving. FIBRE SMARTS: Wool carpet has a luxurious, natural appeal, but solution-dyed nylon is a great choice if you’re looking for a soft carpet with superior fade and stain-resistance for a sunny room or a home with children. GRAB A SAMPLE: Carpet and hard flooring colours will look different from the showroom once you get them home.To work out whether a colour or timber finish is right for your interior, take a sample home and look at it at different times of day and under various light conditions. CONSIDER YOUR OPTIONS: Love the look of timber but want something low-maintenance and more affordable? Why not consider timber-look vinyl planks or laminate, which give you the appearance of real wood for less and can often be used in wet rooms such as bathrooms and laundries. THE TOUCH TEST: To assess how soft a carpet will feel underfoot, don’t just feel it with your hands – slip off your shoes and walk on it.last_img read more

Gentleman primed for perfect show

first_img Walsh first won the Easter Monday highlight on Commanche Court for his dad, Ted, in 2000 and then followed up five years later on Martin Brassil’s Numbersixvalverde, who went on to win at Aintree the following season under Slippers Madden. The Willie Mullins-trained Perfect Gentleman was last seen finishing fourth behind Cause Of Causes over four miles at the Cheltenham Festival and Walsh thinks he goes there with an excellent chance. Press Association Champion jockey Ruby Walsh feels Perfect Gentleman has all the right credentials to give him a third win in Monday’s BoyleSports Irish Grand National at Fairyhouse.center_img “I am happy to be riding Perfect Gentleman in the BoyleSports Irish Grand National on Monday. I think he has the right profile for the race and 10-10 is a lovely weight,” he said in his Irish Examiner column. “He ran a blinder in the four-miler in Cheltenham. He was prominent all the way and probably just got run out of it close home. He jumps really well. “It’s a competitive race but I think a novice might win it, something like Lots Of Memories or Perfect Gentleman. “A lot of the handicappers in it are exposed and plenty of them want better ground than we’re likely to get. So, you’ll want to be going for a horse that has shown some bit of form on winter ground. “Perfect Gentleman has plenty of age for a novice as a 10-year-old. I’ve only ridden him once, when he beat Sadler’s Risk in Cork last November. That’s not bad form. “He fell in the Drinmore after that and was second to Gilgamboa at Christmas before being fourth in Cheltenham. “He stays and has shown enough pace to win over two and a half miles so, with luck in running, has a great chance.” last_img read more

Long wait ahead for packers fan

first_imgYou hear it all the time in life: people complaining about being treated as nothing more than a number. It implies impersonal service and getting lost in the shuffle of bureaucracy. Most people would rather be called by their own name than be referred to as Customer No. 9927867. But still, in large part, numbers define who you are. Think of all the numbers you use as identification every day: your student ID number, bank account number, social security number, even your phone number.Instead of being bothered by this numerological approach to classifying people, I embrace it. In fact, one number in particular means more for me than anything else. It provides a light at the end of the tunnel, a reward for years of hard work and sacrifice, much like social security (hopefully). For myself and several tens of thousands of others just like me out there, it is my place on the Green Bay Packers season ticket waiting list.But there are so many ways to look at the numbers, it’s only right to run it down Arsenio Hall style.That’s right, in honor of the leader of the Dog Pound and host of the short-lived reincarnation of Star Search, let’s delve into the Packer season ticket waiting list and beyond.As Arsenio would say, “Hit me with the digits!”68,784 — My place on the season ticket waiting list. It is a number that is actually ludicrous just to look at. Thanks to an egregious instance of parental oversight, my father missed an opportunity to either a) place his newborn son on the season ticket list some 20-odd years ago or b) put my name on the list once I began to show an unhealthy affinity for sports and the Packers in particular. This would have been around age 4, when I would only eat green food or food packaged in green boxes.Instead, I was left to my own devices, putting my own name on the list at age 18 and dejectedly receiving the first postcard, which informed me my initial place was north of 70,000.4 — Number of tickets each person on the list can request, essentially making 68,748 something a little closer to 260,000. 76.43 — Number of years, rounded to the hundredths place, until 68,784 turns into one, assuming the current rate of moving up approximately 900 spots a year continues. A sobering fact, considering at that point, I would be fortunate to be still alive and eating solid food. If I’m still kicking, when the postcard arrives at the nursing home bearing the good news, I’ll likely break a hip or two. But I’ll walk it off. That’s what Brett would do anyway.In other words, my great-grandchildren had better like football. 1 — Number of women with ties to season tickets I would date. Why only one? Because that’s all it would take.Not to be labeled superficial or anything, but if my best shot to get to see the Packers on a regular basis won’t come until sometime when I’m darn close to pushing the century mark, why not take the short cut if possible. Considering season ticket holders can will them down through family, why not find a nice girl whose family happens to have some tickets for the Green and Gold and set up shop?Just kidding. Partially. Maybe. 1959 –The last year Packers tickets were not sold out on a season-ticket basis. That stretches 249 games and includes a stretch from 1973 to 1988 when the team won no more than eight games in a season. But the season-ticket numbers don’t stop there. Here on campus, the Wisconsin football and basketball teams both see tremendous support.99.5 — The percent of UW basketball season ticket holders who renewed their tickets for the 2007 season, a percentage that is absolutely remarkable. Considering the Kohl Center holds just over 17,000, and each ticketholder likely holds two or more tickets, that means about 40 people who had season tickets last season chose not to re-up. 5 — Consecutive seasons the Kohl Center has been sold out just from season tickets, an impressive feat considering the Badgers don’t exactly have a storied basketball history. 28 — Wisconsin has sold out its last 28 home football games, and has drawn more than 70,000 to 92 consecutive games. There you have it. As they say, the numbers don’t lie. Ben is a junior majoring in journalism and political science. If you have any Packers tickets he could have, or you have season tickets and would like to adopt him, e-mail him at bvoelkel@badgerherald.com. If you have season tickets and are looking for a date, please take a number. Don’t think you’re the only one.last_img read more

Syracuse basketball recruiting: South Kent head coach speaks highly of Matthew Moyer

He was invited to the NBPA Top 100 camp, he announced on Twitter Wednesday afternoon and is ranked the No. 58 prospect in his class by ESPN.And while Moyer possesses length that will help the Orange inside, Jefferson also highlighted his versatility on the court and accolades off it.“His length and athleticism enable him to be a high-level rebounder but he can also hit the 3 or lead the break,” Jefferson said. “On top of all of that he is a great kid from a great family. A national honor student who happens to be an elite player. I am looking forward to coaching him.”AdvertisementThis is placeholder text Commentslast_img read more
