The kitchen is almost too good to use, according to homeowner Vicki Gregory.The couple added a 135sq m deck to the rear of the house, overlooking the lake.“There is so much birdlife on the water with ducks, swans and pelicans,” Ms Gregory said.“It’s a little oasis in the middle of Robina.”center_img 5 Julatten Drive, Robina.MARK Gregory refused to get out of the car when he and wife Vicki first inspected 5 Julatten Drive, Robina. “The agent came around to the car window and made him get out,” Ms Gregory said.“He said, ‘You’ve got to be nuts, we can’t take on a project like this’.” The home opens to reveal a grand staircase.“They don’t make houses like this anymore.“Structurally there were no issues because it’s concrete so there were no cracks and we brought a builder on board who said, ‘If you don’t buy this, I’m buying it’.” Ms Gregory has a soft spot for the huge kitchen. “Everyone walks in and just goes, ‘Wow’,” she said.“It’s so nice I don’t want to get it dirty.”last_img read more

Red Force facing heavy defeat

first_img(CMC) – Trinidad and Tobago Red Force were left facing a heavy defeat on today’s final day, after opener Shayne Moseley struck a career-best hundred and new-ball pacers Kemar Roach and Chemar Holder tore through their top order to leave an improbable run chase in strife.Needing a massive effort on the penultimate day here yesterday in order to remain in the contest at Kensington Oval, Red Force found themselves battered by left-hander Moseley who stroked an unbeaten 155 as Pride piled up 342 for five declared in their second innings.All-rounder Kevin Stoute chipped in with an unbeaten 55 and Test wicketkeeper Shane Dowrich, 26, before Pride put Red Force out of their misery with a declaration about 45 minutes after tea.Set 377 for victory, Red Force slumped to 48 for four at the close after Holder (2-13) and Roach (2-25) wiped out their top order in a lethal burst.Left-handed opener Jeremy Solozano played back to one from Holder which kept low and was bowled in the second over for five with just nine runs on the board and captain Yannick Ottley (1) followed in the fifth over, caught at gully of the same bowler at 25 for two.Roach then turned the game on its head in the next over when he knocked over the experienced duo of Jason Mohammed (5) and Denesh Ramdin (0) to leave the Red Force innings in disarray at 30 for four.Mohammed, who never settled, offered no shot to the third ball of the over and had his stumps shattered while Ramdin lasted three balls before clipping a full-length ball to mid-on where Holder pouched a simple catch above his head.It was left to young opener Joshua DaSilva, who finished the day unbeaten on 23, to prop up the innings along with Yannic Cariah who was unbeaten on 12 at the close.Pride had earlier taken a stranglehold on the encounter after resuming on 127 for two, as Moseley carved out his third first-class hundred and Stoute struck his second half-century of the game.On 49 at the start, Moseley made his way safely to 98 at lunch with Pride on 214 for three, before reaching his landmark in the second over after the interval, when he whipped left-arm seamer Daniel St Clair to the backward square boundary for his 10th four.All told, the 25-year-old carved out 17 fours off 314 deliveries in just over 7-¾ hours at the crease.He extended his overnight stand with Justin Greaves to 48 before losing the all-rounder, holing out to deep mid-off off left-arm spinner Akeal Hosein (2-66), after adding just seven to his overnight three.Moseley then anchored two key partnerships to bat Red Force out of the game. First, he posted 56 for the fourth wicket with Dowrich who struck two fours and a six off 47 balls, before falling lbw to off-spinner Bryan Charles.And when Kyle Mayers perished cheaply for six, 19 balls later, Moseley and Stoute combined in an unbroken 114-run, sixth-wicket stand to further increase Red Force’s misery.Stoute faced 99 balls and counted six fours, reaching his half-century after tea as Moseley also passed 150 for the first time in his career.last_img read more

BMJ article calls for new tax to fund responsible gambling initiatives

first_img YGAM focuses on BAME community engagement with CVR link-up August 21, 2020 Gambling.com maintains momentum against COVID-19 impacts August 19, 2020 Related Articles Submit StumbleUpon According to an article published by The British Medical Journal (BMJ), there should be more emphasis placed upon the revamping of current gambling laws in order to prioritise the funding of problem gambling clinics.The report has called for the introduction of a mandatory tax on the industry which would see additional funds being allocated to industry initiatives and the establishment of further treatment clinics. The proposed tax is set to replace the current tax in place on the gambling industry in which operators and suppliers pay a voluntary levy equivalent to 0.1 per cent of their revenues.The article, entitled Gambling and public health: we need policy action to prevent harm, has suggested that social responsibility initiatives are currently underfunded in the UK, and so the creation of a new gambling tax will help facilitate this. Previously, the gambling charity organisation GambleAware has called for the imposition of a mandatory levy at a higher level to be imposed on the industry – a demand which has been supported by both the UK Gambling Commission (UKGC) and the Labour Party. The Sports Minister Mims Davies, however, has recently claimed that the voluntary system does work.The BMJ article suggests a complete overhaul of the Gambling Act 2005, passed under the Blair’ government, to place more onus on the industry in treating said problems. The industry has, however, placed much more emphasis upon initiatives which are tailored towards the treatment of gambling related harms. Through the work of industry charities, there has been increased collaboration with the NHS and others to help direct people to the best suited intervention, with the charity having already commissioned specialist treatment for gambling addiction and Central & North West London NHS Foundation Trust since 2008. Further clinics are set to open later in the year, as well as the availability of problem gambling helplines and advice centres.
