Call for ‘buffer’ between brothels and homes

first_imgChristchurch Press 27 July 2012Christchurch residents have called for a “buffer zone” to be established between large-scale brothels and residential areas.A Christchurch City Council hearings panel is listening to 20 submissions on the council’s proposed bylaw to restrict the areas where brothels are allowed to operate.Under the bylaw, most brothels would be required to be located within certain commercial areas and away from schools and designated “important open spaces”, such as Cathedral Square and the Avon River.Existing large brothels and small owner-operated brothels would be exempt.The proposed bylaw attracted nearly 200 submissions from residents and organisations, with 20 planning to speak at the panel hearing today.The location of brothels in the city had not been subject to any bylaw controls since July 2005, when part of a 2004 council bylaw was quashed by the High Court.However, the post-earthquake closure of the central city, which forced many brothels to move to the suburbs, has raised community concerns about where they are allowed to operate.RESIDENTS ‘DON’T FEEL SAFE’Lindsay Carswell, speaking on behalf of residents at a Stanmore Rd complex, said a brothel established in one of the units had caused huge disruption for families in the complex.He asked for the council to prohibit brothels from being operated in units like theirs.The brothel opened in February “right in our face”, he said.“It’s like having the red-light district of Manchester St on your driveway.”One woman, who did not want to be named, said she had bought a unit as a “nice family home”, but “all of a sudden … I’m too scared to even take my rubbish bins outside because there are people sitting in cars obviously waiting to come in”.She had had people come to her door trying to find the “full-fledged” brothel.“They think they’re above the law. I would say it’s not a small owner-operated brothel, otherwise they wouldn’t have had to put more bedrooms in there,” she said..“We’re coming to you as a last resort to try to protect us … I don’t feel safe.”http://www.stuff.co.nz/national/7363868/Call-for-buffer-between-brothels-and-homes#Scene_1last_img read more

McIlroy back on top after setback

first_img McIlroy briefly dropped three shots off the lead when he bogeyed the par-four 12th, his third hole of the day, but bounced back with a birdie on the next and made another from 18 feet on the 15th as more rain fell at Valhalla. And when the 25-year-old Open champion holed from 30 feet for an eagle on the par-five 18th, he suddenly held a two-shot lead over US Ryder Cup vice-captain Steve Stricker and fellow American Ryan Palmer. Rory McIlroy recovered from a slow start to boost his chances of a second major title in succession in the weather-affected 96th US PGA Championship on Friday. England’s Lee Westwood and American Kevin Chappell were also six under and among the later starters yet to begin their rounds. McIlroy had not looked in top form in the early stages of his round, pushing his opening drive into the crowd on the par-five 10th and failing to convert a birdie putt from 10 feet, although a par was at least two shots better than he managed there on Thursday after hooking his second shot out of bounds. Another birdie chance went begging on the 11th and the world number one then bogeyed the 12th, pulling his drive into the gallery and failing to get up and down from a greenside bunker. McIlroy, who followed his Open victory with a first World Golf Championship title in the Bridgestone Invitational on Sunday, got back on track with birdies at the 13th and 15th and missed from six feet for another on the 16th after a towering four-iron approach from 224 yards. But he made amends from much longer range on the 18th to reach the turn in 33 and pile the pressure on the chasing pack. Play had got under way in torrential rain at 7:30am but was suspended just 20 minutes later with the first group of joint overnight leader Palmer, Ireland’s Shane Lowry and Bob Sowards still on the first green. Two members of the greenkeeping staff at Valhalla had been attempting to clear water from the putting surface with squeegees, but that proved an impossible task as the rain intensified. The rain eased enough for tournament officials to announce play would restart after a delay of 45 minutes, although preferred lies could not be used as they were surprisingly not in force when the round got under way. The delay meant McIlroy’s tee time was pushed back until 9:25am and by then the rain had stopped, leaving the course vulnerable to the kind of “target golf” the Northern Irishman prefers. The conditions did not seem to favour the semi-retired Stricker, but the 47-year-old – named on Wednesday as Tom Watson’s final vice-captain for the Ryder Cup at Gleneagles – had covered the back nine in 32 to improve to six under. McIlroy’s driving was not up to the standard of his opening round and a missed fairway on the second led to a bogey five, but the three-time major winner saved par from a greenside bunker on the next to remain out in front. Palmer had fallen back with a bogey on the 15th but finished his round in style with birdies at the 17th and 18th to add a 70 to his opening 65 and set the clubhouse target on seven under.

WBB : Syracuse rides hot shooting to win over Ohio in Las Vegas

first_img Comments Published on December 20, 2011 at 12:00 pm Contact Chris: cjiseman@syr.edu | @chris_iseman Eventually, the shots had to start falling. The way Syracuse had been shooting, missing shot after shot from the outside while opponents packed the paint to negate the Orange’s presence at the rim, losses were sure to pile up quickly.The Orange finally found its rhythm against Ohio on Tuesday and the shots just kept falling en route to a victory.‘I think we just put up good 3s. We didn’t go out there and shoot 20-plus 3s,’ SU head coach Quentin Hillsman said. ‘Our game is playing at the rim, playing in the paint. …We did a very good job of not taking bad 3s.’The 81-70 win over Ohio (6-7) capped off Syracuse’s (9-4) three-game trip to Las Vegas in the Duel in the Desert. Syracuse went 31-for-61 from the field for 50.8 percent in its best shooting performance of the season to earn its second win at the tournament. Forward Iasia Hemingway finished 11-for-17 from the field for 24 points, while also notching 10 rebounds for her third double-double of the season. Guard Carmen Tyson-Thomas got hot from the outside, shooting 2-for-5 from beyond the arc, and scored 22 points.As a team, SU went 3-for-11 for 27.3 percent from the perimeter.AdvertisementThis is placeholder textBut the team’s offense went primarily through its high-low set. And Hemingway thrived in the high post, driving to the basket against the Bobcats defense.‘They did a really good job of attacking the rim. I thought that Iasia did a very good job in the high post,’ Hillsman said. ‘I thought in the first half, she was struggling a little bit. …She did a good job in the second half.’After a back-and-forth first half that saw eight ties and six lead changes, SU settled in to an offensive groove in the second half.The Orange took the lead with just over 19 minutes remaining in the second half and never gave it up. Ohio tried to claw back and cut the score to 64-62 with 7:13 left, but SU went on a decisive 11-2 run that gave it complete control of the game.Lately, SU has been so one dimensional that teams have used a simple game plan of caving in on center Kayla Alexander down low, leaving plenty of open looks for the Orange’s shooters on the outside. The open space, though, rarely mattered because of the Syracuse’s poor shooting.Until Tuesday, at least.And instead of putting all the attention on getting the ball to Alexander or center Shakeya Leary at the rim, Syracuse finally took advantage of Hemingway’s solid shooting from the high post.‘We just did a good job of getting the ball in the high post in our possessions,’ Hillsman said. ‘They played a lot of zone on us, so we did a good job of getting the ball to the high post. Obviously, when Iasia gets the ball in the high post, she’s a good player.’Syracuse’s strong offensive showing came one day after getting routed by Oklahoma in an 82-63 loss in which it shot a paltry 27.5 percent.After his team’s win over the Bobcats, Hillsman wouldn’t necessarily admit to being relieved to finally see a solid shooting performance, but did say when Syracuse plays to its capabilities, it is a much better team. ‘We just know that we when we take good shots, when we get the ball in the paint and at the rim,’ Hillsman said, ‘we’re a good basketball team.’cjiseman@syr.educenter_img Facebook Twitter Google+last_img read more

Men’s volleyball sweeps top-ranked Long Beach

first_imgSophomore middle blocker Sam Lewis had four blocks and senior libero Matt Douglas had 9 digs, both match highs, to anchor the defense. Wyett said serving and passing were the Trojans’ biggest strengths throughout the match.   The Trojans led the entirety of the first set with Long Beach trailing closely behind. USC slowly started to pull ahead for a 25-21 set win. “Playing in this gym definitely gives us an advantage, but at the end of the day, it’s not a conference match,” redshirt senior outside hitter Jack Wyett said. “So in the grand scheme of things, it doesn’t give us that much of an advantage. We’re definitely not done with what we’re trying to complete. But if all things finish in the way that we expect them to, we’ll likely see them in the NCAA finals.” The Trojans remain at home this week to take on No. 9 Stanford and No. 8 Brigham Young in Mountain Pacific Sports Federation conference play. USC will face Stanford Friday at 7 p.m. before taking on BYU Saturday at 7 p.m. back on their usual home court at the Galen Center. Leading the 49ers, senior pin hitter Kyle Ensing had nine kills and senior outside hitter TJ DeFalco added eight kills, five digs and 2 aces.. Wyett and senior outside hitters Ryan Moss and Gianluca Grasso led the team offensively. Moss had a match-best 14 kills hitting .565; Wyett had 13 kills at .579; and Grasso added 10 kills at .500. The No. 11 Trojans defeated top-ranked defending national champion Long Beach State in a major upset Saturday night in front of a packed crowd at USC’s North Gym.center_img The Trojans (13-8) became the first team to take down the 49ers (19-1) this season, breaking their 23-game winning streak. The Trojans fell to Long Beach 3-1 earlier this season in January, and until last week when the 49ers played UC Santa Barbara, the Trojans had been the only team to take a set off Long Beach. USC’s energy only elevated going into the third set. Although it was a tight race at first, the Trojans quickly picked up a 9-4 lead and never looked back. The 49ers closed in on the Trojans’ lead multiple times, but never quite managed to catch up. USC won the match with a 25-17 set finish, leaving Long Beach with its lowest-scoring 25-point set since scoring 15 in a 3-0 loss to Penn State in 2015. Redshirt senior outside hitter Jack Wyett tips the ball for a kill in a win against UC Irvine at Galen Center Jan. 23. (Josh Dunst/Daily Trojan) The Trojans started the second set with the same momentum as the first. Although the 49ers scored the first point, USC quickly recovered to put up a 7-2 lead after scoring 4 consecutive points. The Trojans took it away to win the second set 25-21. “Usually that’s how we’re taken out of games, and I thought we were really disciplined with that throughout the game and that’s what won the match,” Wyett said. Although this is a major victory for the Trojans, there is still plenty more that they want to accomplish this season. last_img read more

WWC: England into quarter finals after beating Cameroon

first_imgEngland progressed to the quarter-finals of the Women’s World Cup with a 3-0 victory over an enraged Cameroon side who protested after two VAR decisions went against them.Goals from Steph Houghton, Ellen White and Alex Greenwood sent England through to face Norway on Thursday, but the fractious game will be remembered for Cameroon’s extraordinary reactions to White’s goal and a disallowed effort from Ajara Nchout.The distraught Cameroon players twice appeared unwilling to restart the match, gathering in a huddle after White’s strike was given and remonstrating with the officials further after half-time.Captain Houghton struck England’s opener after an early backpass gave England an indirect free-kick, before the drama escalated.Striker White placed in England’s second, which was initially ruled out before the video assistant referee deemed White to have been onside, but Cameroon reacted furiously and gestured to suggest the big screen’s replays had indicated differently.The African side thought they had pulled a goal back after the break through Nchout, but their despair increased when it was disallowed after a VAR review for an extremely tight offside call.England left-back Greenwood then swept in the Lionesses’ third to secure a win that saw them reach at least the last eight of the competition for a fifth time, and for the fourth consecutive World Cup.A fractious evening in ValenciennesCameroon, who are 43 places below Phil Neville’s side in the world rankings and playing in only their second Women’s World Cup, began the tie as major underdogs.They had reached the last 16 thanks to a 95th-minute winner over New Zealand on 20 June, which saw them progress as one of the four best third-placed sides, but Sunday’s drama against England was of a different kind.There was an edge to the match early on, with Yvonne Leuko booked for an apparent elbow on England winger Nikita Parris, before Augustine Ejangue appeared to spit on Toni Duggan after the backpass that led to the opener.Cameroon then reacted with despair after White’s goal was given by VAR, temporarily refusing to restart play, and some of their players were reportedly in tears in the tunnel at half-time.Boos and hissing from the stands then followed the decision to disallow Nchout’s strike, coupled with widespread protestations from their substitutes.And the first ever competitive meeting between these two sides concluded with a poor challenge by Alexandra Takounda on Houghton, for which the Cameroon player was booked as her team-mates again remonstrated with the referee.
