first_imgREIQ CEO Antonia Mercorella wants more ongoing training mandated for real estate agents. Picture: Claudia BaxterSOMEONE can legally sell houses worth hundreds of thousands or even millions of dollars in Queensland with only a few days training under their belt.As Queensland’s peak real estate industry body called for mandatory ongoing training for real estate agents, it has been revealed very little training was required to be allowed to handle big property transactions.A spokeswoman for the Real Estate Institute of Queensland confirmed there were two types of people who could handle property transactions in this state – a registered salesperson and a licensed agent.She said many in the community did not tend to distinguish between both and tend to use the term agent to describe all real estate professionals who sell property. A salesperson has a registration certificate and an agent has a full licence.A salesperson must complete training from a recognised provider and then be registered by the Office of Fair trading.This allows them to be employed by a licensed agent and they can buy, sell, exchange or rent houses, businesses, land or any interest in these. They can negotiate on behalf of a buyer, seller, landlord or exchange or rent houses, businesses or land show property to potential buyers inspect and assess property for sale or rent and advertise a property for rent or sale.They may not conduct auctions or operate trust accounts and cannot work independently, and must always work under the supervision of a licensed agent.

They need to also hold an auctioneer’s licence to conduct auctions.The spokeswoman said when conducted through a reputable training provider it took about four days or longer to become a sales person, but she said some training operators had a bit of a “tick and flick’’ process.The REIQ has been calling for mandatory continuing professional development (CPD) for real estate professional for about three years.REIQ CEO Antonia Mercorella said just before the state election now-Treasurer Jackie Trad had committed to introduce mandatory CPD.“(It) is an important consumer protection measure and will help ensure that all real estate practitioners are educated about the laws and more than 40 pieces of legislation that govern their profession and impact on real estate transactions,’’ she said. “We know the majority of responsible working real estate agents support this. They are tired of labouring under the poor reputation that consumers have formed through interactions with the unprofessional few who fail to maintain their professional knowledge,” she said. Ms Mercorella said ongoing education was crucial for compliant, professional agents and it was already mandatory for membership of the REIQ.“An examination of all disciplinary proceedings against real estate agents since 2013 shows that not once has an REIQ member been found guilty of breaching the relevant legislation,’’ she said.“This is compelling evidence that speaks to the power of education,” she said.last_img read more

first_imgThere was an overall 15% decrease in global maritime security incidents in the first half of 2017, compared with the same period of 2016, according to Control Risks’ latest maritime analysis. As explained, the drop was in part driven by a significant decline in maritime piracy in the Gulf of Guinea, which in 2016 experienced the highest levels of piracy and armed robbery ever recorded in the region.Cargo and tanker vessels were involved in 38% of piracy incidents.There was also a notable decline in kidnap incidents from vessels in Southeast Asia compared to the latter half of 2016, partly due to the successful efforts of the Philippines military against the militant Abu Sayyaf Group on land, reducing their capability to kidnap victims at sea, according to Control Risks.The global decrease in maritime security incidents has occurred despite the spike in Somali pirate groups targeting ships operating in the Horn of Africa region, and the ongoing conflict in Yemen contributing to a growing trend of incidents in the Southern Red Sea and Bab-el Mandeb strait, where vessels have been targeted in violent terrorist attacks.Cormac Mc Garry, Maritime Risk Analyst at Control Risks, commented that “the Gulf of Guinea has seen a substantial decrease in piracy this year as Nigerian pirates groups, which typically dominate regional statistics, have not shown the same intent to venture far offshore or beyond Nigerian waters like they did in 2016.”“However, there is no sustained trend yet pointing to a substantial reduction in piracy in the Gulf of Guinea compared to the years before 2016, and we expect increased activity from mid-July as the seas become calmer,” he added.“It is promising to see a continued decline in global maritime security incidents, which have been decreasing over the past three years. However, this trend should not allow for complacency. We are recording global levels similar to 2013 which also followed a three year downward trend, largely due to the decline of Somali piracy. But that global trend did not last. Often, as one region sees less activity it picks up in another,” Mc Garry concluded.last_img read more

first_imgArsenal manager Arsene Wenger insists the club will “follow our own recommendations” on how best to help Mesut Ozil recover from a knee injury. Press Association Whatever the time frame, Wenger accepts he will have to be patient with Ozil’s return to full match fitness, which could well not be until the start of 2015. “When he arrived with the German national team, they didn’t think it was a lot at the start. He was supposed to practice on Wednesday but, in the end, he said that wasn’t possible for him,” Wenger said on “Then he had a scan and it was bad news. We have our own specialist giving us his opinion after reading the scan and examining Mesut. We will follow our own recommendations.” Arsenal’s injury problems continued when central defender Laurent Koscielny was released from international duty with France. Press Association Sport understands Koscielny has a minor Achilles problem and the decision is precautionary, with the Gunners confident he will be fit for the Premier League clash at home to Hull a week on Saturday. Les Bleus play Portugal on Saturday and Armenia next Tuesday in friendlies building up to their hosting of Euro 2016. Arsenal, however, have been able to report some positive news, with Theo Walcott and Serge Gnabry back in full training following knee injuries, while midfielders Aaron Ramsey (hamstring) and Mikel Arteta (calf) are also continuing their rehabilitation on schedule. Wenger added: “Theo is not too far away now. Serge has been out for a long, long time and Theo has also been out for nine months, so it’s good to see them back. They’ve worked very hard and they’re very dedicated. They are back in the group on a daily basis and that’s very good news. “For Ramsey it’s day 13 today and I think it will be day 21 before he is back into training. Arteta may be back with the group late next week.” Defender Mathieu Debuchy and Olivier Giroud, however, remain long-term absentees. center_img The German Football Federation announced on Wednesday the midfielder was set to be out for “10 to 12 weeks” as scans from international duty revealed a “partial rupture of the outer band of the left knee joint” after Ozil had complained to Arsenal’s medical staff of pain after Sunday’s 2-0 defeat at Chelsea. The Barclays Premier League club, however, later released their own statement insisting no time frame had yet been set for the recovery of their record signing, with a story on the club’s official website on Thursday suggesting “Wenger knows he will be without the 25-year-old for at least two months”. last_img read more

first_img The 29-year-old flattered to deceive during a similar deal at Manchester United last year, with the Monaco striker only able to hit four goals in 26 outings for Louis van Gaal’s side. Falcao, who failed to score for Colombia in the Copa America before their penalty shootout defeat to Argentina in the quarter-finals, has long had the backing of Chelsea boss Jose Mourinho and has set his sights on trophies at Stamford Bridge. Radamel Falcao is targeting his first silverware in England having joined reigning Premier League champions Chelsea on a season-long loan. ‘I am very happy to be joining Chelsea and can’t wait to start training and help with our aim of retaining the league title and being successful in Europe,” he told Chelsea’s official website. Having missed the 2014 World Cup with a serious knee injury, Falcao’s career appeared to be back on the rise as he joined United as part of Van Gaal’s revolution. But he only managed goals against Everton, Aston Villa, Stoke and Leicester as United finished fourth and the Red Devils opted against turning his move into a permanent transfer. Whilst Van Gaal was getting United back into the top four, Chelsea were winning the league and Capital One Cup double with their own new forward Diego Costa helping himself to 20 Premier League goals. Now he will be teamed with Falcao – after the pair played together for Atletico Madrid – in what is a potentially potent strike-force at Stamford Bridge. Having first played in Europe for Porto, Falcao made his Champions League debut against Chelsea and also hit a hat-trick against the Blues in the European Super Cup during a goal-laden spell at Atletico. He then made his way on to Monaco but his big-money move was less successful as he suffered a serious knee injury in 2014 and missed half the Ligue 1 season and the World Cup. Having already played with fellow Chelsea players Costa, Thibaut Courtois and Felipe Luis at Atletico and Juan Cuadrado at international level, Falcao will already have a host of familiar faces in the Chelsea dressing room and, with a manager determined to get the best out of him, the forward will be hoping to show he can cut it in the Premier League. He is now expected to link up with his new team-mates on a pre-season tour of the United States, with his return to Old Trafford pencilled in for December 28. center_img Press Associationlast_img read more

first_img Published on October 3, 2012 at 1:32 am Contact Jacob: | @Jacob_Klinger_ Facebook Twitter Google+ Every muscle of Rontez Miles’ 6-foot-1-inch, 210-pound body is the product of a hometown and childhood littered with drugs, violence and betrayal.He is also a consensus All-American free safety at Division-II California University of Pennsylvania, an NFL prospect, a brother and a father.“All we ever had in Braddock was football, you know, so, that was one thing that they’ll never take from me,” said Miles, a senior. “Where I’m from made me who I am today, basically.”Miles moved frequently with his mother when he was young as she struggled with drugs. Too often he was the new kid in whichever neighborhood he called home at the time. She’s better now, and so is he, but in those days Miles was often jumped.“Coming up the way I did, I didn’t trust,” Miles said. “I just couldn’t look at nobody as a trustworthy person.”AdvertisementThis is placeholder textVondre Griffin was the lone exception. Miles and Griffin were born two months apart after Miles said his father had an affair with Griffin’s mother. The two mothers had their differences, but they never separated the boys. Miles and Griffin stayed close from Pee Wee football through high school in Pennsylvania.They planned to get out together.Miles and Griffin were widely recruited college prospects. But only Miles received offers from BCS programs like Colorado, West Virginia and Pittsburgh.He instead opted to play with his brother at Kent State.“When we went to Kent we both had somebody to lean on,” Miles said. “One of the main reasons why I wanted to go to school with him was we could both get out of the situation together, why not take that chance? You know, so it was like, that was really a key part in my life and they messed it up.”In spring 2008, then-head coach Doug Martin called Miles and Griffin, then redshirting, down to his office, Miles said. Martin told Griffin he was off the team.Martin asked Miles, who was taking classes to become eligible under the NCAA’s Proposition 48, to stay.Miles refused.“I looked at my brother and I told him I was leaving as well. And (Martin) flipped out and said we wouldn’t be nothing if we left,” Miles said. “We’d be in trouble if we went back to where we’re from, basically saying we had nothing going for us if we left.”Martin said he did not recall the meeting, but the decision to kick him off the team was largely based on Griffin’s poor academic standing.When Miles and Griffin left Martin’s office, Miles had a plan. He’d been texting his cousin Terrence Johnson for months. Johnson was a cornerback at California University of Pennsylvania who grew up with Miles.Then-head coach John Luckhardt recruited Miles out of high school.“I was already kind of impressed and I remember coach Luckhardt always saying no matter what happens in the future, if I ever wanted to be a Vulcan I could be a Vulcan,” Miles said.Miles and Griffin could still play football together.They spent the 2008-09 school year working at an American Freight warehouse in Pittsburgh and taking classes at the Community College of Allegheny County. Griffin earned the 24 credits required to transfer to Cal.But Griffin couldn’t get his transcript. When Miles and Griffin went to enroll, they learned Griffin owed Kent State about $17,000. The dream of playing football together disappeared.Miles transferred smoothly. He hadn’t played a competitive down since 2007. No one noticed.“It was like I picked right back up from where I left off at,” Miles said “And what was crazy is everyone else was excited about it, but I knew that I wasn’t where I was supposed to be yet.”During summer 2010, Miles worked out with Johnson almost every day. They’d spent the fall closing down the right side of the Vulcans defense with Miles playing linebacker.“I would just tell him ‘Look Rontez, when we’re out here, I don’t care what anyone else is doing on the field, we got to hold it down. Like everything, no passes, no running, no nothing on that side of the field. That’s how it has to be,’” Johnson said. “And then he picked up, his mentality was just like, no one could mess with us.”Miles won conference freshman of the year and second team All-Pennsylvania State Athletic Conference.On Aug. 5 at about 3 a.m., Griffin was arrested after police determined he was a murder suspect, the Pittsburgh Post-Gazette reported. Griffin was defending himself, according to Miles and testimony made on Griffin’s behalf in Pittsburgh Municipal Court.Griffin will stand trial for charges of criminal homicide and carrying a firearm without a license in connection with a shooting outside the McKeesport’s Sportsman’s Club, the Pittsburgh Post-Gazette reported. He is being held in Allegheny County jail without bail.One year earlier, Miles got a phone call from Griffin as he prepared to play his natural free safety position for the first time since high school. Griffin’s career was over. While Griffin prepared for his security shift at Wilkinsburg High School, he was crying on the phone with Miles.Griffin was nervous for Miles. He had goose bumps and he told Miles he felt like he was about to take the field with him. Tears came to Miles’ eyes.A 14-tackle game followed.“When I’m out there it’s him or me, and it’s like I’m not letting my brother down, I’m not letting my kids down, I’m not letting my family down,” Miles said. “Like, every tackle is life or death for me.” Commentslast_img read more

first_img“Goal Line Stand” runs Fridays. To comment on this story, email Michael Katz at or visit I came to a depressing conclusion this morning: USC isn’t going to make the NCAA basketball tournament. And they aren’t going to the NIT tournament, either.But you know what? I’m still really happy about this 12-14 squad. And after Sunday, I might be a whole lot happier.Sunday is when the Trojans host arch-nemesis UCLA at the Galen Center, looking for their second season sweep over the Bruins in four seasons. By beating the Bruins, it would not only deflate the entire Westwood area, but would signal the start of something: that USC basketball is for real.Now, I’m not saying a win over UCLA would take away the pain of 2011’s 6-26 record or this year’s record, regardless of how things wrap up. It doesn’t make up for the fact that UCLA has won 11 national titles in the sport and USC has none. What it does do, however, is show real improvement — that the Trojans aren’t content to be bottom feeders for eternity.After a gutsy stretch of games that the Trojans have recently won, head coach Bob Cantu’s squad looks like it might be able to win a few more contests this season. Fans won’t have to wear bags on their heads or pretend they don’t know where the Galen Center is. Sunday’s game is the culmination of momentum building up for USC men’s basketball. It’s officially game time.I’ll say it outright: the Sunday game means everything.The athletic department is forcing students sitting in a certain section to wear bright gold “Trojan Fever” t-shirts. Tickets for the game aren’t particularly cheap. For the first time in a while, the Galen Center might look filled. There are going to be an awful lot of people watching the game on TV, too.This is a chance for the Trojans to prove they belong. That they can hang on the court with the big boys again. That this isn’t just a football school. That USC basketball can be more than an afterthought.And let’s not forget the players who are going to be on the court, either. There are stars all around the board for both teams. UCLA features freshman guard Shabazz Muhammad, a likely top-five pick in the 2013 NBA draft. They have the Wear twins, both of whom will likely be NBA players. They have a six-foot-nine point guard named Kyle Anderson who is built a little like another point guard who used to rule Los Angeles (minus the assist statistics).Meanwhile, the Trojans are less heralded but are getting recognition because of their recent four-game winning streak that came to an end against Cal last Sunday. Senior guard Jio Fontan, who missed all of last season with a knee injury, is playing with a lot of heart. He’s hitting big free throws and isn’t turning the ball over. Junior forward Dewayne Dedmon is starting to look like every bit of his seven-foot frame. Senior forward Eric Wise and sophomore guard Byron Wesley are hitting shots and are looking like solid players. Heck, junior guard J.T. Terrell finally looks like a top-100 prospect.Look at this. I’m getting excited about USC basketball. I’m thrilled the Trojans are in sixth place in the Pac-12. There are players on this USC team worth watching. This game against UCLA will be a culmination of all the good things that have come from this roster and the stellar coaching of Cantu. The Bruins have an awful lot to play for come Sunday: seeding in the conference tournament and getting off the NCAA tournament bubble. The Trojans, though, have something bigger to play for: pride.Pride is the heart of all athletics, whether it be at the high school, collegiate or professional level. Beating the Bruins would give this team all the pride in the world. The Trojans aren’t going to win a national championship this season. They probably won’t next year either. They might make the NCAA tournament in the next couple of years, but I wouldn’t be surprised if they didn’t. It doesn’t matter. Beating UCLA will add to the excitement that the Trojans have been building on during the past few weeks. It will get a fan base that is in dire need of hope genuinely excited for basketball. Who would have thought that was even possible in Troy?last_img read more
