The OrchardTOWNSVILLE’S newest large lot master planned community is growing quickly with eight homes either about to begin or already under construction and almost as many on hold. Elements North Queensland Sales Manager Paul Fotinos said The Orchard’s location and fully serviced large homesites were a major factor in the success of sales. “This is the only development that offers easy access to just about every major employment hub as well as large homesites that are all fully-serviced including NBN ready, underground power, town water and sewage connection, kerb and channelling,” Mr Fotinos said. “We always knew there was a pent-up demand for this kind of product in the local market but to have this many lots all but sold in the past few months has exceeded our expectations.”More from news01:21Buyer demand explodes in Townsville’s 2019 flood-affected suburbs12 Sep 202001:21‘Giant surge’ in new home sales lifts Townsville property market10 Sep 2020“There are definite signs that confidence is returning to the residential market and all indications are that the demand will grow faster for larger, full-serviced homesites that provide generous building envelope compared to the traditional lot.” The Orchard is a 350 home development set in natural bush land off Darling Road in Jensen and boasts new, fully serviced homesites from 1000 to 4000sq m.Mr Fotinos said The Orchard’s proximity to the Ring Road meant there were just one or two sets of traffic lights to work for residents employed at major employers The Hospital, JCU and Lavarack. “There are around 20,000 locals employed at these employment nodes and we have received a lot of interest from this market all seeking more space,” Mr Fotinos said. “There are some great schools just minutes away and also plenty of shops and parks nearby. Buyers are really drawn to this balance of convenience, lifestyle and space.” For more info, call Mr Fotinos on 4731 1425.
Kevin Bourne, managing director at FTSE, told IPE that, while it was not for FTSE to dictate for customers, including pension schemes, to divest, it would provide solutions to do so.“Institutions are either engaging with fossil fuel companies, tilting away from carbon or in some cases divesting,” Bourne said.“It is not for us to say whether our customers should divest, but if there are those that wish to, we have made sure we have a product in that space.”Bourne said that while some customers may use the index to divest from fossil companies, others might use it to measure and model the index over time to use within risk-management processes for overall portfolios.The idea of divestment over moral and ESG issues has sparked debate throughout the industry.The UK’s Law Commission explained environmental factors could be taken into consideration for divestment, overruling previous requirements focusing solely on financial return.However, the Environment Agency Pension Fund, a £2.2bn (€2.7bn) scheme, was recently urged not to divest from fossil-fuel stocks held passively and told to engage with companies over their carbon exposures.A senior legal figure also recently said UK local government schemes may divest but only if members are not financially affected.FTSE’s index works on an exclusion basis and will remove any company that conducts exploration or production in oil, gas and coal, has revenues from coal mining, crude petroleum or gas production, or is proved to have reserves in coal, oil or gas.Gordon Morrison, also managing director at the index firm, said that, due to the nature of the index, it would remain sensitive to the performance of the excluded stocks.“We are not managing the risk of these companies,” he said.“We have tracking error in the portfolio, so we would not expect to track the main indices closely, but it is not a variable we are looking for. So we will get the resulting performance and are sensitive to resulting performance of the excluded stocks, and will never avoid that.“There will be a trade-off between the expected risk and expected reward.”ShareAction, a UK lobby group, welcomed the launch of the index.Chief executive Catherine Howarth said: “We will be bringing them to the attention of UK pension funds whose beneficiaries are demanding stronger attention to the financial risks presented by climate change and climate regulation.” The Natural Resources Defense Council (NRDC) has funded the creation of FTSE Group’s ex-fossil fuel index, for global passive investments excluding exploring, mining and reserve holding companies.FTSE created the index at the request of the NRDC, a US-based lobby group, which will also provide a seed investment.The pair also worked jointly with asset manager BlackRock, which will launch a fund matching the new index using seed finance from the lobby group.FTSE said the request from the NRDC was not to create a bespoke index for its own equity investments but one that could be used as an industry benchmark.
South Africa’s 2010 Fifa World Cup™ put to rest, once and for all, the idea that Africa is incapable of hosting world-class events of this magnitude. Fifa gave the country a near-perfect 9 out of 10 for the show it put on – here are just some of the reasons why:Take a bow, South Africa!John Carlin, author of Playing the Enemy, says all the stories about the 2010 Fifa World Cup being the 1995 rugby World Cup all over again, about healing racial wounds, uniting the fractured nation and so forth, were off the mark. “It was much, much better than that.” SA’s World Cup ‘near-perfect’: FifaAs Fifa president Sepp Blatter gave South Africa a near-perfect 9 out of 10 for its hosting of the 2010 Fifa World Cup, analysts said the spin-offs of improved perceptions abroad could have a long-lasting impact not only on South Africa and its development but on the continent as a whole. 2010 ‘one of our greatest achievements’The 2010 Fifa World Cup was one of the greatest achievements of post-apartheid South Africa, President Jacob Zuma said at the national Heritage Day celebrations at Durban’s Moses Mabhida Stadium. World Cup surveys highlight successThe successful hosting of the 2010 Fifa World Cup has done wonders for South Africans’ national confidence and the country’s image abroad, according to pre- and post-tournament surveys commissioned by Fifa. International awards for SA stadiumSouth Africa’s FNB Stadium, previously known as Soccer City, was a major hit with the fans during the 2010 Fifa World Cup. It’s also been racking up the design and construction awards, most recently being named the overall winner at the prestigious international Leaf Awards. South African ‘can-do’ wins againA novel beer vessel introduced in South Africa during the 2010 Fifa World Cup has been named Can of the Year 2010 by The Canmaker magazine, which reports on innovations in the metal-packaging industry. Bafana, Tshabalala do SA proud2010 was a good year for Bafana Bafana, and it ended on a high, with news that South Africa was up to 50th in football’s latest world rankings, and that Siphiwe Tshabalala’s blistering opening goal of the 2010 World Cup was among 10 nominees for Fifa’s goal of the year. Pride for Africa as Spain strike goldOnly 12 kilometres separate Spain from Africa at their closest point, and they were united in celebration at the finish of a 19th Fifa World Cup that sent a fault line of happiness stretching all the way from Bloemfontein to Barcelona. South Africans the ‘true stars’: ZumaThe people of South Africa were the “true stars” of the 2010 Fifa World Cup, uniting to prove to the world that the country and the continent was capable of hosting a world-class event, says President Jacob Zuma. South Africa’s World Cup wins heartsThe aftermath of hosting what has been hailed by one and all as a successful 2010 Fifa World Cup will no doubt leave South Africans with a massive hangover. However, the tournament has given them a new sense of pride, confidence and optimism, and opened a new chapter not only for the hosts but for the African continent. World Cup: Cape Town takes a bowAs Cape Town played host to the semi-final clash between the Netherlands and Uruguay on Tuesday night, the city bid farewell to its 2010 Fifa World Cup journey. For the city residents, it has been a memorable month that will live with them long after the tournament. Durban a hit with World Cup fansSouth Africa’s “Surf City” was the place to be on Friday as fans streamed in by the thousands for one of the most anticipated matches of the 2010 Fifa World Cup group stages, Brazil versus Portugal. While the match itself did not live up to the hype, the city of Durban certainly did. SA the ‘plan B’ of future World Cups“There is not a single part of this World Cup where we have not been able to go beyond the level of past World Cups,” Fifa secretary-general Jerome Valcke said at the halfway mark of the 2010 Fifa World Cup. “South Africa will become the ‘plan B’ of any future World Cup.” South Africa’s 2010 tourism harvestSouth Africa is set to reap lasting tourism rewards from the 2010 Fifa World Cup, with visitors pouring into the country in numbers, from new as well as traditional markets, and responding to the country’s offerings – and the energy and warmth of its people – with surprise and delight. Special courts key to World Cup successOne of the great successes of the 2010 World Cup – and there have been many – is how the special courts set up for the tournament have succeeded in dealing with the criminal activity that is part-and-parcel of hosting an event of this magnitude. World Cup so far ‘a success story’As the 2010 Fifa World Cup approaches the half-way mark, initial glitches have been ironed out and the competition is progressing magnificently, says Local Organising Committee CEO Danny Jordaan, adding that interest will only increase as the tournament progresses. Volunteers: World Cup’s unsung heroesWhile the on-field action draws the crowds, it is the thousands of hard-working volunteers busy in the background, making sure that each match runs with operational precision and professionalism, that should also be awarded a trophy. African welcome wins players’ heartsWhatever their fortunes on the pitch, players from the competing nations at the 2010 Fifa World Cup are enjoying the experience off it. The temperatures might be low, but the visiting teams are feeling the warmth of the African spirit. Huge crowds at World Cup fan festsFifa Fan Fests, organised at 16 venues around the world, played host to more than a million supporters during the first six days of the biggest sporting party in the world – with maximum capacity reached in almost every venue each time the respective national team played. Cup visitors enchanted by South AfricaThe world’s attention is focused on the southern tip of Africa as the greatest football showpiece plays itself out on the fields and in the streets of South Africa. But once the final whistle has blown on 11 July, it seems as though a lot of happy fans will be coming back to the country. Record SA audience for opening matchThe opening match of the 2010 Fifa World Cup between hosts South Africa and Mexico drew a record South African TV audience. The tournament is also getting good viewership ratings in North and South America, Europe and China. Soccer City one of world’s best: BlatterThe majestic Soccer City Stadium, venue for both the opening and final match of the 2010 Fifa World Cup, has won rave reviews from Fifa president Sepp Blatter, who described it as “a five-star stadium” and one of the most beautiful in the world. South Africa’s ‘quantum’ football stadiumThe Moses Mabhida Stadium, Durban’s spectacular 2010 Fifa World Cup venue, has scored not only an engineering first for an African stadium with its majestic arch. It has also become the world’s first “quantum” stadium. 2010 stadiums: mission accomplishedAfter six years of sustained hard work and intense global scrutiny of their ability to deliver, South Africa’s nine host cities have produced 10 World Cup stadiums – matching and exceeding international standards – which will soon be known to television viewers the world over.

Kandi/Jangipur: Chief Minister Mamata Banerjee launched an all-out attack against the BJP at Kandi and Jangipur rallies on Wednesday. Stating that the regional parties would play a vital role to form the government at the Centre, the Chief Minister added: “The BJP will be voted out of power and the Congress will not be able to form the government singly. The BJP will not get more than 100 seats.”Addressing two rallies at Kandi and Jangipur, she maintained: “The BJP will get zero seats in Bengal, Andhra Pradesh and Odisha. Moreover, if they get fewer seats in Uttar Pradesh and Rajasthan as well, how will they become the hero in the 2019 election,” she said. Jangipur will vote on April 23 while Berhampur will go to polls on April 29. In 2014, Congress candidates had won both the Berhampur and Jangipur seats.

If you see them distributing money, take their photographs and send us. The RSS has no work and they are here to create division among people.” The Chief Minister further said people had lost respect for political leaders and had developed fear in the mind about them. “People are scared of the BJP leaders. The moment you go against them, agencies such as CBI, ED and DRI will harass you. People have never seen a political party with so much vengeance ever. See their body language, it is scary,” she said.
