This is the ultimate ensuite.Mrs Kassolos said they also ensured all of the bedrooms were oversized to allow room for a desk as the children grew.Her favourite room of the house, however, was the kitchen.“It’s the hub of the house,” she said. “I can entertain there — the bench is nearly 4.5m.“I’m always prepping food on there or having people sit there.“It flows to outside as well and it is a good entertainment home.” The kitchen, living and dining all link to the alfresco dining area.The couple dived in headfirst and worked with local architect John Contoleon to design a large two-level family home for the 31 Spent St address at Mount Gravatt East.Mrs Kassolos said her husband was a builder and they wanted to stay away from the current Hamptons trend, creating something ultra-modern instead. The walk-in wardrobe is a dream come true. The house at 31 Spence St, Mount Gravatt East, is for sale.WORKING with a partner on a project as big as building a house is not for the faint of heart.Yet Jessie and Michael Kassolos pulled off their first build together — and they certainly did not start small. The black kitchen is offset with white benches and timber features.“We wanted something different for the local area,” Mrs Kassolos said.“It’s dark outside and fresh inside with whites, the timber and the black kitchen.”More from newsParks and wildlife the new lust-haves post coronavirus13 hours agoNoosa’s best beachfront penthouse is about to hit the market13 hours agoWith two children, it was essential that the house worked well for a family.“We sat down together and I said I want a house that flows easily and is going to be kid friendly.“I like the fact the toy room slash media room is near the kitchen and I can see out to the pool area and outside so I can still see them if they are running around.” Watch the kids in the pool from the alfresco dining area.Mrs Kassolos said she also loved the master suite, which ran the whole length of the house and almost half the width.The ensuite has a long vanity with dual sinks, and there is a double shower as well as a bath.Video Player is loading.Play VideoPlayNext playlist itemMuteCurrent Time 0:00/Duration 1:44Loaded: 0%Stream Type LIVESeek to live, currently playing liveLIVERemaining Time -1:44 Playback Rate1xChaptersChaptersDescriptionsdescriptions off, selectedCaptionscaptions settings, opens captions settings dialogcaptions off, selectedQuality Levels720p720pHD540p540p288p288p180p180pAutoA, selectedAudio Tracken (Main), selectedFullscreenThis is a modal window.Beginning of dialog window.

Denver Broncos build around Drew Lock in the NFL draft

first_imgEven though he’s undersized, Hamler stood out even in a class of wide receivers like none other.Hamler said he was surprised when Elway picked him after spending his first pick on Jeudy, but he said he was eager to team up with Jeudy, Courtland Sutton and former college teammate DaeSean Hamilton in Denver, where he expects to quickly make his mark.“I’m the smallest guy with the smallest frame,” Hamler said, “but I’ll give you everything I’ve got.”Ojemudia said facing the likes of Jeudy, Hamler, Sutton and tight end Noah Fant in his first training camp will microwave his NFL education.“I mean, that’s going to be big,” Ojemudia said. “It’s going to be harder than the games sometimes.” “I really couldn’t hear him just because my family was yelling and we were all crying,” Hamler said. “So it was kind of hard to hear him, but I hope he has that in mind. I would love to return kicks and punts.”The Broncos’ once-formidable offense has been stuck in neutral for five years and last season Denver averaged a meager 17.6 points a game, 28th in the NFL, as their playoff drought reached four seasons.A tweaked hamstring before the NFL scouting combine prevented Hamler from challenging John Ross’s record of 4.22 seconds set at the 2017 combine.“I won’t say I think I was going to break the record, but I was going to be in the equation,” Hamler said. “I was going to be in the conversation — 4.2 was the only thing on my mind.”He said his hamstring is fine now: “I’m fully healthy. I’m fully recovered. I’ve been running real good.” Denver Broncos build around Drew Lock in the NFL draft Associated Press April 24, 2020 Share This StoryFacebookTwitteremailPrintLinkedinRedditJohn Elway pledged to give Drew Lock more weapons and better protection in an NFL draft teeming with wide receivers and offensive linemen. He delivered.The Denver Broncos general manager provided Lock with two terrific targets and added an athletic center through the first two nights of the draft. center_img Coach Vic Fangio expects Cushenberry to compete for the starting job along with Austin Schlottmann and Patrick Morris.“He’s got license to go in there and compete and win the job if he can,” Fangio said.Elway said Cushenberry could also play guard.Fangio said the draft has been seamless so far with teams having to conduct it via videoconferencing during the COVID-19 pandemic.“We haven’t had any problems communicating with the unusual setup for this draft,” Fangio said. “I think John’s done a great job orchestrating. We had some guys we wanted today and we had chances to go up and get them and John decided to sit and they ended up being the right choices both times. The jewel of Day 2 for Denver, though, was Hamler, who provides a jolt to the Broncos’ offense and special teams.“I think I bring to the table speed, quickness, playmaking ability,” Hamler said. “I’m versatile, I can play outside and I can play in the slot. I can return kicks and punts. I’m a playmaker.”Hamler, who is generously listed at 5-foot-9 and 185 pounds, is elusive with an uncommon burst of speed and has modeled his game after DeSean Jackson and Steve Smith.The Broncos see him as a Tyreek Hill-type playmaker who can also serve as Denver’s kick returner and help the Broncos chase down Hill and the Super Bowl champion Chiefs in the AFC West.Hamler wasn’t sure if Elway told him he’d also return kicks. Elway selected Penn State speedster KJ Hamler with the 46th pick in the second round Friday night, 24 hours after using the 15th overall pick on Alabama standout Jerry Jeudy, the highest Denver has ever selected a wide receiver in the common draft era. In the third round, Elway added protection for his second-year QB by drafting LSU center Lloyd Cushenberry, who was named first-team All-SEC in 2019.Elway didn’t neglect his defense, either, selecting Iowa cornerback Michael Ojemudia and Arkansas D-tackle McTelvin Agim in the third round.Elway has five more picks Saturday.Ojemudia will help fill the void left by the departure of Chris Harris Jr. to the Chargers this offseason, and Agim solidifies a refurbished defensive line that includes trade acquisition Jurrell Casey. “So, we saved draft picks and we got the guys we wanted. I think that comes with experience doing the job. So, I just get out of the way when it comes to that point.”___Follow Arnie Melendrez Stapleton on Twitter: http://twitter.com/arniestapleton___More AP NFL: https://apnews.com/NFL and https://twitter.com/AP_NFL,Tampa Bay Lightning advance to face Dallas Stars in Stanley Cup finals, beating New York Islanders 2-1 in OT in Game 6last_img read more

Volleyball players earn Pac-12 weekly honors

first_imgSophomore powerhouse outside hitter Brooke Botkin goes up for a kill against Northern Iowa where she recorded eight kills and 11 digs to lead USC to victory on Saturday morning. (Sarah Kim | Daily Trojan)Following the Women of Troy’s dominating performance this past weekend at the Trojan Invitational, two standouts earned Pac-12 weekly awards. Sophomore outside hitter Brooke Botkin was named Offensive Player of the Week, and freshman setter Raquel Lázaro was selected Freshman of the Week. These honors were career firsts for both players. While the undefeated weekend was a team effort, these two players carried the load.Hailing from Pearland, Tex., Botkin had an outstanding performance over the weekend, boasting 19 kills against Kentucky and 25 against Creighton. Her defense remained consistent with 11 and 12 digs, respectively. In the grueling five-set victory over Creighton on Saturday night, she added two aces to help ultimately put the Women of Troy on top. Botkin had a total of 52 kills throughout the three matches with a .248 hitting percentage.“[Botkin] is really going to have a big step forward from her freshman year,” head coach Brent Crouch said prior to the season opener. “It’s going to be really fun to watch her in that position.” During the 2017 season, Botkin appeared in 22 matches, recording a total of 151 kills and four aces. In her best match that season, she had 20 kills and 10 digs for the first double-double of her career. She has already surpassed her best record from last season.Lázaro made her college debut in the first match of the Trojan Invitational against the Kentucky Wildcats, stunning everyone in Galen Center with 55 assists. This marks the highest number of assists in a single match for the Trojans since Hayley Crone’s 58 assists in 2012. Against the Bluejays on Saturday night, she recorded her first career double-double with 53 assists and 22 digs. Throughout the weekend, she led the team to an impressive .248 hitting percentage and 175 kills. From Soria, Spain, Lázaro played for the country’s national team for six years before coming to USC. She won two gold and four silver medals with the Spanish National Team. In 2017, she made eight appearances in the European League Championships. Lázaro hopes to bring her high-level experience to the Trojans this season, a task that she has already succeeded in. The No. 7-ranked Trojans will travel to the University of Florida this weekend to compete in the Bubly Invitational Tournament, where their opponents include No. 4 Florida, UCF and Louisville. Botkin and Lázaro will continue to lead the team, along with junior outside hitter Khalia Lanier and senior libero Victoria Garrick. The Women of Troy are now looking to roll with their momentum and hold on to their undefeated season.last_img read more

Life suspension for Armenian officials

first_imgReferee Andranik Arsenyan and assistant Hovhannes Avagyan, who oversaw a UEFA Europa League match last month, have been given life bans by the UEFA Control and Disciplinary Body.Following the provisional decision rendered by the chairman of the CDB on 7 August 2013, the plenary meeting of the CDB analysed the case today.The CDB took note of the decision of the Executive Committee of the Football Federation of Armenia (FFA) with regard to the referee and assistant referee who officiated at the first qualifying round match between Inter Turku and Víkingur on 11 July 2013.In a hearing at the FFA, referee Arsenyan and assistant referee Avagyan admitted having tried to manipulate the outcome of the second-leg fixture, which ended 1-0 in favour of Víkingur.The UEFA betting fraud detection system (BFDS) – which monitors over 32,000 matches across Europe, including all first and second-division games, cup ties and UEFA competition fixtures – had detected suspicious betting patterns around this encounter, and this prompted the start of an investigation by UEFA, to which the FFA contributed closely.UEFA is pleased with the excellent cooperation of the FFA, the local authorities and the betting operators during the investigation process.last_img read more
