The German World Cup winner has been frozen out by Gunners boss Mikel Arteta and hasn’t featured since football’s return in July. The Europa League represented an opportunity for him to stake his claims to return to the fold, having not featured since March, but Arteta has elected to leave him out of the squad entirely. Arsenal were hoping to offload Ozil – the club’s top earner on £350,000-a-week – this summer but a suitable offer never arrived and he has publicly stated his desire to see out the end of his contract.

Strategy key to selling success

first_imgREIQ Townsville Zone chairman Wayne Nicholson shares his strategies for selling success.I recently read a wonderful book call Monash’s Masterpiece by Peter FitzSimons. The book is about Australia’s most acclaimed wartime General during the first world war. Monash changed the way wars were fought. At the time battles were waged in trenches – men would go over the top, get cut down by enemy fire and then more would go over the top and more would be cut down. Monash changed this strategy and used a variety of tactics to outsmart our enemies. If you have any interest in our war history I urge you to read this book. 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 2020Why am I telling you this? To me there is a real synergy between Monash’s battle plans to take the town of Hamel in 1916 and sellers wanting to sell their property in our market. Like Monash’s winning wartime strategy, selling a property successfully is a combination of many things and not just one or two things required to win the battle. Firstly, you must plan your assault on the market with your REIQ agent and then together work that plan meticulously. Write down all of things you need to do to bring about a successful sale. Things like, make certain the yard is green and tidy and the shrubs are pruned. Make certain that paint touch ups are done where necessary and the carpets receive a steam clean. Unclutter the cluttered bedrooms or living areas and place a few strategic bunches of flowers for open days. Chose a soothing background music CD to play softly at opens. Arrange to have the pets well tethered or absent for inspections as some may not love your pets the way you do. Ensure there is a nice incense or air freshener providing a lovely citrus or forest style scent throughout and some lit candles are a nice touch and soothing to the buyers. Some sellers and agents offer cold bottles of water to prospective buyers and, probably most importantly in our Townsville summers, make certain you turn the airconditioning on and cool the house prior to the agent arriving for the open home. Make sure the pool is sparkling if you have one and turn the spa on also. All these things plus anything else you consider will be beneficial, must all be done. The assault on the market place must be designed, planned and executed in concert for maximum effect.last_img read more

Keeping Winter Weather from Wreaking Havoc on Home Heating Bills

first_imgWith winter approaching and consumers across Indiana turning up their furnaces, experts say it’s a good time to consider how your home can be more energy efficient.Snow, sleet, and ice have many Hoosiers turning up their thermostats, and those natural gas and electric bills can be expensive.According to Anthony Swinger, director of external affairs at the Indiana Office of Utility Consumer Counselor, a home energy audit can help residents reduce their energy use and better manage their heating bills. He noted that many consumers are eligible for free assessments from the Energizing Indiana program.“They’ll send someone out, do a walk-through, spend some time with you and actually show you where in your home you can make improvements that will can really help and add up,” he said.Other tips to keep heating bills down include clean furnace filters, checking your insulation, setting ceiling fans to turn clockwise at a low speed, and using programmable thermostats that turn down the temperature when you are at work or sleeping.If you are facing financial hardship and can’t pay a bill on time, Swinger suggests reaching out to your utility company.“The more proactive you are, the earlier you contact the utility, and the earlier you work out a payment arrangement and keep it, the better the odds are that you’ll keep those services connected,” he said.Additionally, most Indiana natural gas and electric utilities offer budget billing programs, which he said provide for set monthly payments, making it easier to plan ahead.Swinger pointed out that another easy way to save money is to cut back on what he refers to as “vampire power.”“We’re talking about a cell-phone charger that’s plugged into the wall, but no phone is plugged in at the other end, or another a small appliance that you might keep plugged in that doesn’t really need to be plugged in, but it is using energy to some degree,” he specified.Lighting can also be expensive, and Swinger suggested switching to CFL bulbs which are more efficient, using only a fourth as much energy as traditional incandescent bulbs, and lasting about ten times longer.last_img read more

Batesville CYO Deanery Basketball Scores (11-18)

first_imgBatesville CYO Deanery Basketball ScoresSunday  (11-18)St. Louis-1 was defeated by St. Michael’s 43-38. This was a game of 2 halves. The 1st half saw St. Louis-1 play fairly well as they led 30-18. The 2nd half was controlled by St Michaels’s as they would out score St. Louis-1 25 to 8. As well as we played in the 1st half, we played that poorly in the 2nd half. We turned the ball over way too many times and didn’t shot the ball well at all. I was really disappointed in our effort in the 2nd half, but these are things we can fix.STL scoring. Sam Giesting 9, Nathan Eckstien 8, Adam Cox 8, Lane Oesterling 5, George Ritter 4, Gus Cooper 3, Cooper Williams 2, Alex Smith 1.St. Louis-2 started their season off on a winning note as they held off Holy Family 52-50. St. Louis-2 jumped out to an early to lead 21-15 after the 1st period. Holy Family would not go away as the game would remain close the entire game. Sam Haskamp’s 3 point shot was offline and that would give St. Louis-2 the win. We played pretty well for our first game. We did just enough to secure the win.STL scoring.
