Gold Coast mansion sets a benchmark for luxury living

first_imgThe Sovereign Islands mansion at 14 King James Court is nothing short of luxurious.WHEN it comes to luxury living on the waterfront, it doesn’t get much better than this.The Sovereign Islands mansion epitomises opulence with soaring ceilings, wide windows that frame envious Broadwater views and top-of-the-line fixtures and fittings.Its modern design will not only stand the test of time but set a benchmark for others to emulate when creating lavish homes.The King James Court residence wasn’t always so well appointed though.Owners Clint and Jenny Karananos breathed new life into it through an extensive renovation, which took six months to complete. It has a timeless design with top-of-the-line features. The owners spent six months renovating the house to the highest standard.“It was actually a rental property we had, we were using it as a high-end rental,” Mr Karananos said.“We could see that there was some work to be done so we did a full renovation on it recently.”He said they were responsible for the rejuvenation of the house at 37-39 Brittanic Cres, which recently fetched the highest price on the Gold Coast this year after selling for $11 million, so they knew what they were doing.The five-bedroom mansion now has a much more contemporary style, with a neutral palette, crisp lines and cleverly integrated lighting giving it an air of sophistication.

Holders U.S. suffer penalty heartache against Sweden

first_imgBy Andrew DownieRIO DE JANEIRO, Brazil (Reuters) – Sweden knocked the United States out of the women’s Olympic soccer tournament yesterday, recording one of the sport’s biggest shocks by beating the holders 4-3 on penalties in the quarter-final after the two sides drew 1-1 after extra time.Lisa Dahlkvist converted Sweden’s final penalty after Alex Morgan and Christen Press missed for the holders in the shootout. Linda Sembrant also missed for Sweden.The United States, who dominated large parts of the match, have won four of the last five Olympic gold and had never not reached the Games final.Sweden scored against the run of play after 61 minutes when Stina Blackstenius ran on to a defence-splitting pass and calmly slotted the ball past U.S. keeper Hope Solo.The U.S., however, kept plugging away and scored a deserved equaliser after 77 minutes as the ball ricocheted off the face of Jessica Samuelsson and fell perfectly for Morgan to fire home from eight metres.Sweden will play in the semi-finals against either hosts Brazil or Australia, who face each other on Friday.China play Germany and Canada face France in the other two last-eight ties.last_img read more

Welsh interception highlights career day

first_img Published on August 31, 2013 at 11:07 pm Contact David: dbwilson@syr.edu | @DBWilson2 Facebook Twitter Google+ EAST RUTHERFORD, N.J. — Robert Welsh isn’t usually in a place where he can come away with interceptions.The defensive end scored two touchdowns as a tight end at St. Anthony’s High School in New York, but never had grabbed an interception before his first Syracuse start Saturday against Penn State in the New York’s College Classic.“Out of all the plays that play I just felt like I wasn’t in my own body,” Welsh said. “It was funny because Coach called a great call and I did exactly what I was supposed to do.”That was watch the quarterback’s eyes and try to make a play. Welsh was surprised that the Nittany Lions were throwing the ball as they tried to ice an eventual 23-17 win over SU, but the play call works well against a run or pass.Christian Hackenberg, Penn State’s freshman quarterback who threw two picks in his debut, tossed one toward Welsh. He bobbled the pass, but eventually gathered it.AdvertisementThis is placeholder text“Then when I caught it I said, ‘Oh I have the sideline,’” he said, “and I switched hands and got to the end zone as quick as I could.”Running back Zach Zwinak flipped Welsh as he dove for the end zone and was stopped at the 1-yard line — “I think I was in,” Welsh said, “but the ref said it wasn’t so it wasn’t in” — before Jerome Smith pounded in a run to get the Orange within six.It didn’t end up saving SU, but it highlighted a career day for the junior. Welsh made four solo tackles, two unassisted, and recorded his first career sack on the field at MetLife Stadium, where his grandfather has season tickets to New York Giants games.His whole family roots for the Giants, so it was an unforgettable experience for Welsh, even if his team left without a victory.Said Welsh: “Definitely the highlight of my life.” Commentslast_img read more

Miramar man sentenced to three years for lotto scamming

first_imgA resident of Miramar in South Florida man has been sentenced to three years in prison in connection with the operation of a Jamaica-based lotto scam, the Department of Justice has announced.Claude Shaw, 49, of Miramar, Florida, was also ordered by US District Court Judge William P Dimitrouleas to pay US$128,440 in restitution, and will have three years supervised release.Shaw pleaded guilty on March 22 to one count of mail fraud in the Southern District of Florida. As part of his guilty plea, Shaw acknowledged that, from or around September 2013, through to or around August 2015, he participated in a scheme to defraud victims in the United States and unlawfully enrich himself.“Today’s sentencing demonstrates the Justice Department’s commitment to combating foreign-based lottery fraud schemes targeting individuals in the United States,” said Acting Assistant Attorney General Chad A Readler of the Justice Department’s Civil Division. “Financial schemes designed to defraud unsuspecting victims will be prosecuted to the fullest extent of the law.”As part of the scheme, victims throughout the United States received telephone calls in which they were falsely informed that they had won more than $1 million in a lottery and needed to pay money in advance to claim their winnings. The victims were instructed on how, and to whom to send their money, including being instructed to send their money to Shaw. Victims sent more than $100,000 to Shaw, who then forwarded a portion of the money to Jamaica. Victims never received any lottery winnings.last_img read more
