Kevin Hayes and his family have bought affordably in Bulimba. Photo: Claudia BaxterOne magic number proves it’s not just millionaires buying in Brisbane’s expensive suburbs.You might think it takes impossibly deep pockets to become a homeowner in our most desirable addresses, but the numbers prove that’s not true.Our 20 most expensive suburbs have median house prices ranging from $950,000 to $1.85 million, but not every house is the same. Cheaper homes are on offer, too. It’s time to consider a measure called the lower quartile.Put simply, if there have been 100 sales in a suburb, ranked from least to most expensive, the median price would be the 50th sale, but the lower quartile shows the price of the 25th sale – or ‘the median of the lower half’. Source: CoreLogic“It gives a better idea of what the entry point into that market is going to be, rather than that middle of the pricing range,” said Corelogic RP Data head of research Tim Lawless. “Often the lower quartile (price) can be more than 50 per cent lower than the actual median price, particularly when a suburb has a really diverse range of housing.”Mr Lawless said it was useful for drilling down into the detail of markets.“Look at the buy-in price of Hamilton, based on the median of $1.3 million, but there’s still 25 per cent of properties that have sold for a price tag of about $860,000 or less,” he said. “I think a lot of people will be looking at the numbers and saying, ‘Well, maybe buying a detached house in Hamilton isn’t quite as unachievable as I thought.’”More from newsMould, age, not enough to stop 17 bidders fighting for this homeless than 1 hour agoBuyers ‘crazy’ not to take govt freebies, says 28-yr-old investor7 hours agoMr Lawless said smart investors used the measure to spot opportunities. “In some way, the lower quartile is a good reference point for the worst house in the best street,” he said.Place Bulimba marketing agent Shannon Harvey agreed the lower quartile measure should be part of most buyer analysis.“A lot of people are forgetting that properties will come up that they actually can afford,” she said.Ms Harvey said buyers needed to do the research, get prepared and be ready to strike when a low-priced opportunity presented itself.“Typically, it would be unpresented – the garden needs work, it might need a paint, there might be some maintenance issues, it could be a tenanted property where they’ve got a 12-month wait to get into the home,” she said. “It’s something that’s not perfect, but if you can compromise a little bit you’ve got a reward there.”Kevin Hayes and wife Kate used the approach when buying in Bulimba.Mr Hayes said the couple were looking on-and-off for five years before the imminent arrival of their second child compelled them to act.“We were trying to find something that was ‘move in ready’ – something we could easily move into but had potential to get our hands dirty down the track to do some improvements.”Their three-bedroom cottage on 400sq m within a short stroll of the Oxford St cafe strip was perfect. They bought in August 2016 for $811,500 – more than 30 per cent below the suburb’s median house price. Mr Hayes said buyers keen on low-price real estate needed to become area experts. “Do lots of research, keep your eye on the internet, have a good understanding of where you want to be and be prepared to roll your sleeves up and get a bit dirty when you move into your new property,” he said. “Don’t try and buy the forever house straight away if you’re looking to do what we’ve done.”
(San Francisco, CA) — The appellate attorney’s for convicted killer Scott Peterson want his death sentence overturned. Peterson still sits on California’s death row after being convicted of killing his wife, Laci Peterson and their unborn son, Conner, in 2005.During a virtual hearing before the California Supreme Court yesterday, attorneys argued media coverage tainted the jury. An attorney for the prosecution argued the case was very clear.https://www.850wftl.com/wp-content/uploads/2020/06/Scott-Peterson-Appeal.mp3The court will return a judgment soon. Peterson has been on California’s Death Row at San Quentin prison since 2005 after being found guilty for the 2004 murder of his wife Laci Peterson and their unborn son, Conner.The last execution in California occurred Jan. 17, 2006, when Clarence Ray Allen, 76, was put to death. No executions have been carried out since.As of March 2019, further executions are halted by an official moratorium ordered by Governor Gavin Newsom.
Rolla Bolla: Kirill Rebkovets balances over a stack of cylinders. Denis Ignatov plays with fire. Martin and Visan Espana on the Wheel of Destiny (Images: Mariola Biela) MEDIA CONTACTS • Collett Dawson Publicist, Le Grand Cirque Adrenaline +27 82 653 1338 RELATED ARTICLES • Zip Zap circus school teaches life skills • Cirque du Soleil to wow South Africa • SA puppet company wins a Tony • Fast, furious and female siteTiisetso TlelimaForget the scene in Mission Impossible with Tom Cruise scaling up Dubai’s skyscraper, Le Grand Cirque Adrenaline at the Joburg Theatre is layered with bigger, better and more spectacular stunts.With no safety belts, crash mats, harnesses or any other safety apparatus, the production, originally from Sydney, Australia, is by far the most dangerous extreme acts show South Africa has seen.It opened on 24 May, and is jam-packed with nail-biting, heart-pounding action while also providing side-splitting comedy.Jaw-dropping actsThe headline act, known as the Globe of Death, left the audience in awe as they watched three bikers ride inside a globe of steel at speeds of up to 65km/h, all the while trying to avoid collision.“It’s honestly the most insane piece in the history of theatre,” said the show’s creative producer Simon Painter.“They could die at any point in the act. It’s a ridiculous, crazy thing to do.”Equally dangerous is the Wheel of Destiny, performed by two Brazilian artists, Martin and Visan Espana, whose stunts involve jumping in and out of man-sized cylinder shaped ends of a giant swinging pendulum. The point is to manoeuvre in and out of the wheel as quickly as possible, sometimes even blindfolded.Rolla Bolla, performed by Russian-born Kirill Rebkovets was another favourite among the audience. Rebkovets stacks cylinders one on top of another to make a rolling tower, on which he then places a board that he balances on while the cylinders wobble under his weight.Also popular was the Trampoline Wall. In this act, three athletes hurl themselves, one by one, off a large trampoline on to a wall standing at right angles to it, all the while performing somersaults on the way up and down.Circus fanatics can expect to see anything from shape juggling and artists flinging themselves off double swings to acrobats balancing themselves on each other’s heads and identical twins bending their bodies to fit into barrels.An opportunity for laughsThe host of the show is Salvador Salangsang, who makes a great impression of a non-English speaking character who occasionally yanks unsuspecting members of the audience from their seats only to make fun of them on stage.These pranks are a welcomed break from the adrenaline-charged stunts by his colleagues and add a comic feel to the show.World-class performersLe Grand Cirque features 35 athletes who have been handpicked by Painter from all over the world. The artists come from countries like Australia, Bulgaria, Canada, France, Mexico, Spain, Ukraine, Britain and the US. Many have been performing in circuses most of their lives.“It’s a 9th generation circus so they’ve done it all their lives,” explained Painter.“Their grandfathers did it, their great grandfather did it. There are two wonderful children who are already training with [their fathers] now.”Painter, who started his career as a classic violinist before turning to theatre producing, travelled around the globe to places such as Outer Mongolia, Brazil and the Eastern Batiks in search of the world’s most unusual and death-defying performers for the new Adrenaline production.“They have to be the best in the business of what they do,” he said when asked how the artists are selected.“Every single one of them is a champion, they’ve won awards and competitions. They have to be at the top of their game. So that’s how we pick them.”They must also be willing to work as a unit because everyone works together on stage, he added.Le Grand Cirque Adrenaline will run at the Nelson Mandela stage at the Joburg Theatre until 17 June.Painter is also planning to bring yet another exhilarating show, The Illusionists, which showcases some of the world’s best magicians, to South Africa next year.Tickets for Le Grand Cirque Adrenaline are available from R190 and can be purchased by visiting www.joburgtheatre.com or through calling the theatre’s ticketing office on 0861 670 670.The show starts at 8pm Tuesday to Fridays, 3pm and 8pm on Saturdays and at 2pm and 6pm on Sundays.
18 August 2015With a bold programme of more than 70 productions, this year’s Cape Town Fringe – which runs in the city from 24 September to 4 October – promises to be a showcase of the best of South African theatre.Audiences can look forward to an invigorating mix of new and original work spanning every genre. It is the second time this annual event will be held in Cape Town.Ismail Mahomed, the festival’s artistic director, said the Cape Town Fringe was evolving its own artistic fingerprint – that of an engaged, original, and socially aware programme.“It demonstrates how independent artists and arts companies are passionately engaging with the world around them and bringing that experience to their work,” Mahomed said. More productions were likely be added in the coming weeks as contractual and other discussions were concluded.Magic is on the billWhile the programme comprises mostly theatre, dance, performance art, physical theatre, music, family theatre and magic will round off the 11-day festival.This year’s line-up aims to offer a wide choice, ensuring that the Fringe matches the vibrancy and creativity of other Fringe festivals worldwide. “Audiences will be able to craft an amazing experience, drawing from productions that won the coveted Standard Bank Ovation Award at the recent National Arts Festival in Grahamstown, through to original work that is devised and created specifically to premiere at this year’s Fringe,” he said.More venues join the FringeProduced by the experienced team at the National Arts Festival, the Cape Town Fringe will make use of venues in the city centre, Langa, and at the V&A Waterfront for the first time in 2015.“The programme has a strong Cape flavour, with locally based artists making up about 60% of the programme,” said Fringe chief executive Tony Lankester. More than 18 000 tickets were sold last year, and the event was estimated to have an economic impact of more than R4-million, over and above its R2.7-million direct spend.Local partnerships were crucial to staging the event, Mahomed added, highlighting relationships with initiatives such as the Zabalaza Festival, Pansa and Assitej, all of which had made the programme “richer and more relevant”.“The Fringe has helped Cape Town earn the enviable reputation of an events destination of choice,” said Garreth Bloor, the Cape Town mayoral committee member for tourism, events and economic development. The economic spin-offs of events held enormous benefits for the city and its residents.Innovations this yearLankester said last year’s event had given the organisers a solid base from which to innovate: “We want to grow the event even more and we will be introducing some innovations developed as a result of open engagement with Cape artists and institutions earlier this year.”Some of this year’s innovations include:Patrons who book via the Cape Town Fringe website will be able to make use of the print-at-home-ticket function, reducing queuing time for patrons.An enhanced and more user-friendly Cape Town Fringe mobile booking and planning app.A stronger programme of events for schools and learner groups during the daytime.Greater cognisance given to religious and other holidays in the planning process.Expanding to venues beyond the City Hall precinct.Partnering with Cape Town Tourism and a specialist travel agent to put packages together for visitors from other cities wanting to attend the Fringe.More specials for workers in the City to attend shows during their lunch breaks. “Give us your lunch hour; we’ll give you a show and a sandwich,” say organisers.A busier and more vibrant Fringe Club in the City Hall, where patrons will be able to meet for coffee, a glass of wine and a light meal.Joining the city as a full sponsor of the event this year is Standard Bank, which will host the Standard Bank music stage in the City Hall.“The venue will feature some amazing entertainment,” said Jenny Pheiffer, head of brand and group sponsorships at Standard Bank.Booking opens at the end of August through the Cape Town Fringe website.Productions at #CTF2015NameCompanyGenreProvinceLast Cow StandingNu-Breed Theatre CompanyTheatreKwa-Zulu Natal7 Deadly SinsMacbob ProductionsTheatreKwa-Zulu NatalAcatears MusicVaal University of Technology – BOTCMusicGautengAdam Small BeJazzedApplauz Arts InitiativeMusicWestern CapeADAM:Vichistravrya or I wish I were Caitlyn JennerTazme PillayTheatreWestern CapeAl Julle VolkeWessel PretoriusTheatreWestern CapeAn Extraordinarily Ordinary LifeKB Theatre ProductionsTheatreWestern CapeAshesRust Co-OperativeTheatreWestern CapeAstonishWonga MagicIllusionWestern CapeB*tch Stole My DoekCopy DogTheatreWestern CapeBarbed Wire WallpaperClockwork HeARTDance & Physical TheatreGautengBarredYellow Glove CollectiveDance & Physical TheatreWestern CapeBig GirlsFollow Spot ProductionsWestern CapeBlaqseedVaal University of Technology – BOTCMusicGautengBlood OrangeUntouchable Productions / Craig MorrisDance & Physical TheatreGautengButlers and BabysittersSlick ‘n SleeveTheatreWestern CapeDetritus for OneAlan ParkerDance & Physical TheatreWestern CapeDoucheJawBreaker ProductionsDance & Physical TheatreWestern CapeElla’s HorsesCharles Fourie ProductionsTheatreWestern CapeExhibit S, Ode to Saartjie Baartman by a Black South African WomanThola AntamuTheatreWestern CapeExit the KingFlat Monkey CompanyTheatreWestern CapeFat Man’s CoopApplauz Arts Initiative in association with PANSATheatreWestern CapeGug’Othandayo The MusicalVukani Emalahleni Service CentreTheatreMpumalangaHatchetmanHatchetmanMusicWestern CapeHow Stories BeganJungle Theatre CompanyTheatreWestern CapeĦREJJEF – folktalesSoundscapesMusicMaltaInja ka VuyoIsibane Puppet and Drama Group in association with UNIMATheatreWestern CapeIs this for Keeps?/ Between Love and PainBaxter Theatre centreTheatreWestern CapeJazz with Asanda MqikiAsanda MqikiMusicEastern CapeJohnny Boskak is Feeling FunnyUntouchable Productions / Craig MorrisTheatreGautengMagic through the AgesBrendon PeelIllusionEastern CapeMime La FranceMime Theater promotionsGautengMonna ga se NkuBaikitsi Arts CollectiveDance & Physical TheatreWestern CapeMooi Street MovesNompumelelo MtshaliTheatreKwa-Zulu NatalMorayks LiveRamamudi Trading Enterprise (Pty) LtdMusicGautengNaked Knitting and Other Contradictory ActsLiquid FusionTheatreGautengNatRust Co-OperativeTheatreWestern CapeNdendileBaxter Theatre CentreTheatreWestern CapeNguMzimba WamArt of Hearts in association UNIMATheatreWestern CapeNomadic OrchestraMusicWestern CapeOntwrigDrama Department, Stellenbosch University & WoordfeesDance & Physical TheatreWestern CapeOn and OnCape Junior Ballet CompanyDance & Physical TheatreWestern CapePANSA Unplugged: CollaborationsPANSA Western CapeDance, Music, Comedy & PoetryWestern CapeRooivalkNico ScheepersTheatreWestern CapeSleepless DreamsStuart LightbodyIllusionWestern CapeSleight of Mouth II: Now Talk Your Way Out Of This!Marcel OudejansIllusionWestern CapeSmaartiesAbstr(ACT) ProductionsTheatreNorth WestStil(l)Abstr(ACT) ProductionsTheatreNorth WestSuggestion Box #justsayingOddBody TheatrePublic Art / Public ArtWestern CapeSweet Sounds of Maya SpectorMaya SpectorMusicWestern CapeThe Brothers LiveThe BrothersMusicEastern CapeThe Incredible JourneyKB Theatre ProductionsTheatreWestern CapeThe Politics of Love & Femininity…Black hair & all that JazzWild Young BohemiansTheatreMpumalangaTom Thum & Jamie McDowellMusicAustraliaTrophyGavin KrastinPerformance ArtWestern CapeTumi ThusiTTM ProductionsMusicGautengUhambo LomhambiBaxter Theatre CentreTheatreWestern CapeWaltzThe Gatherings/Intlangano supported by First Physical Theatre and endorsed by Creative City GrahamstownDance & Physical TheatreEastern CapeWarrior On WheelsThe Chaeli CampaignTheatreWestern CapeWaterlineUyabona KeDance & Physical TheatreEastern CapeWe didn’t come to hell for the croissants: 7 deadly new stories for consenting adultsPOPArt productions in association with Jemma KahnTheatreGautengWhat goes UP…FTH:KTheatreWestern CapeSource: SAinfo reporter

Rain may play spoilsport in the third and final T20 international between India and Australia with weather forecast indicating possibility of light to moderate rain, here on Friday.”The forecast is possibility of thunderstorm accompanied with rain today (Thursday) and a light to moderate rain tomorrow,” the Met office said.The city has been receiving good rainfall almost on a daily basis for about a week, throwing normal life out of gear. Arrangements have been made at the Rajiv Gandhi International Cricket stadium, the venue of the match, to ensure that the match is held without any problem.Curator YL Chandrasekhar said the recent rain has not affected the wicket.However, the outfield was affected a bit and some fans were being used to dry the affected area. The T20I series is locked 1-1 after Australia defeated India by eight wickets in the second match at Guwahati on October 10.
